The Romneys' dressage horse has qualified for the Summer Olympics in London! This was a lose-lose for Mitt Romney. Think about it. If the horse had failed to qualify, well, he would have spent all that money on a loser. But now that the horse has qualified, the connection between Mitt Romney and dressage will be in the news all summer long.
If you are quarter-billionaire Mitt Romney, here is a conversation you don't want undecided working class voters in Ohio having in July:
"Romney declared how much of a loss for that horse on his taxes?"
"Uh, that would be $77,000."Or this one:
"Hey, what is dre... dressage?"
"You know, it's the thing where millionaires and billionaires watch a guy in a top hat and coat ride around on a dancing horse that costs more than my house."Seriously, I bet Mitt wishes right now that his wife had picked a different hobby.
