Too big a field for Romney to graze

WE SHOULDN'T BE too critical of McMitt Romney for speaking to a near-empty stadium after the Detroit Economic Club accepted the blame for the embarrassing setting. The club said it had sold ,1,200 tickets for the original site, the Ford Field atrium, which only holds 700. So McMitt ended up on the field of the 65,00o-seat stadium, the home of the Detroit Lions. Still, the lunar astronauts must have felt less isolated, particularly when there were so many empty folding chairs at his rigged podium on the field.

Not to leave poor campaign optics alone, Romney went on to tell the Motor City clubbies that he loved cars and that his wife Ann owned "two Cadillacs, actually."

I'd bet $10,000 that the regular guy's aides would have liked to have that one back.

PS: He also added another reason besides the trees' height and cars why he loved Michigan: "The streets are just right". That's telling Barack!
