You have to give credit where credit is due, and at a town hall meeting in Ohio on Tuesday, Romney was asked a question by a woman who called Obama “a monster.”
Amazingly (for Romney at least) he didn’t wait for any polls to come out before he responded. “That’s not the term I would use,” he said.
Wow. A semblance of civility and decency from the candidate who has decided to run an overwhelmingly xenophobic and dishonest campaign thus far. It wasn’t a harsh repudiation, but from coming from Romney, it’s a start. Watch below:
Ben Cohen is the editor and founder of The Daily Banter. He lives in Washington DC where he does podcasts, teaches Martial Arts, and tries to be a good father. He would be extremely disturbed if you took him too seriously.
