Romney Attends Fundraiser Thrown by Cheney, Avoids Being Seen with Him

Romney and Cheney "likely stole some time" earlier in the day for a private meeting, but Mitt refused to tarnish his image with Dick in public, the NYT reports:

CheneyMr. Cheney remains unpopular with many Americans, and Mr. Romney’s team went to great lengths to avoid any public images of the two men together. When Mr. Romney arrived at the reception, he greeted Mr. Cheney with a handshake and Mr. Cheney’s wife, Lynne, with a kiss, but reporters who were within view were promptly escorted out by the campaign. (Typically, the campaign does not allow photos or videos inside its fund-raisers.)

Mr. Romney, who largely avoids mentioning former President George W. Bush and Mr. Cheney on the campaign trail, did not mention Mr. Bush at the first reception, which was open to a press pool. But once at Mr. Cheney’s private residence — which backs up to a golf course — a pool reporter within earshot of Mr. Romney’s remarks heard Mr. Romney invoke Mr. Bush but was not able to make out the context, and was again escorted away by a campaign staffer.

  1. So it's like a prostitution thing. He wants the money but was ashamed of the acts he has to do to get it. That's an insult to the profession. Back to training.

  2. That's stupid. It was thrown by Cheney and you were there. You might as well have stuck your tongue in his ass. It wouldn't make any difference.

  3. Hey, as an executive at Bain, Romney drew a salary, signed papers, started a project here and there, but wasn't really involved much.

    Sounds like Cheney's angling for a third term....

  5. Darth is also very ill, so the photo would have been a bit revealing.

  6. Romney is smart enough (as would be anyone) to not be seen associating too much with a world-class criminal. Hundreds of thousands of deaths are on the head of this man. I am still waiting for the Hague to take this one on, but… I'm certainly not holding my breath.
