The Oppo File on Mitt Romney

Here are some of the hilarious Mitt bits from the McCain campaign's opposition research that I thought blogtown would enjoy:

SECOND AMENDMENT, page 34:
Romney Forced To Admit He Hunted Only Two Times In His Life And Does Not Own A Gun. Romney Later Admitted He Has Been Hunting Only Twice In His Life – Once Nearly Fifty Years Ago, Once At “Fenced Game Preserve”


LITERARY AND CINEMATIC FLIP FLOPS, page 174-75:
Favorite Book: Romney Insisted L. Ron Hubbard’s “Battlefield Earth” Was His Favorite Novel, Then Said Mark Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn” Was His Favorite

Romney: “Actually the one by L. Ron Hubbard, I hate to think … I’m not in favor of his religion by any means, but he wrote a book called ‘Battlefield Earth’ that was A VERY FUN SCIENCE FICTION BOOK.”

Favorite Movie: Romney Once Said “O Brother Where Art Thou” Was His Favorite Movie, Now Says It Is “Raiders Of The Lost Ark."

In yet another example, CNN profiled the 2008 presidential field and Romney listed his favorite movie as ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark.’ But as recently as 2003, Romney told media outlets that his favorite was the George Clooney flick ‘O Brother Where Art Thou.’”


AWKWARD MITT MOMENTS, page 199:
Romney at youth basketball game and gym class with awkward sit-ups/warm-up routine.
Romney says the Harlem Globetrotters have trouble making touchdowns.

These last two are apparently on video somewhere; someone really needs to track down the video of Romney doing sit-ups/warm-up routine.
