Romney Makes Another Bad Joke

September 27, 2012

Earlier this week Romney’s wife, Ann Romney, had to make an emergency landing at an airport due to some smoke in the cabin. The plane landed safely and no one was hurt during the whole ordeal but it was what Romney said at a conference later that made news headlines.
Here’s what Mitt Romney said at that conference:

“When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no – and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous.”

Really Mitt? Are you solving all of today’s big problems in one fell swoop? That is absolutely preposterous. I don’t understand how a man of that intelligence can be running for our presidency.

A person should know that you can’t open windows in a plane because the cabin will instantly become depressurized causing some serious damage to passengers and the plane itself. I’m not quite sure if Romney was attempting to make a joke here or not. Even if he was though, it just goes to show how awkward the man is and how out of touch he seems to be. A possible joke he made doesn’t even get taken as a joke in the public’s eyes. Should be interesting to see how he bounces back from this.
