Republican hopeful Mitt Romney illustrated again on Friday why voters may find him harder to relate to than any other presidential candidate.
In a speech to the Detroit Economic Club at Ford Field, the former Massachusetts governor awkwardly praised Michigan and bragged about all the vehicles he and his wife owned.
“I actually love this state,” the candidate opined. “This feels good, being back in Michigan. You know, the trees are the right height, the streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles.”
“I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually. And I used to have a Dodge truck. So, I used to have all three covered,” he added.
Throughout his campaign, Romney, who is worth around $250 million, has made a series of tone-deaf attempts to relate to average Americans.
