Mitt Romney • Calling for a ban on political contributions by public teachers’ unions, which he further denounced as an “extraordinary conflict of interest.” If implemented this would, of course, come at nearly the full detriment of the Democratic Party, a fact Romney acknowledged only jokingly: “I don’t mean to be terribly partisan, but I kind of am. In the case of the Democratic Party, the largest contributors to the Democratic Party are the teachers unions.” source (via shortformblog)
Mmhmm. Mitt Romney can’t stand that groups are donating to politicians who might benefit them. Because it’s a conflict of interest. Mmhmm. Got it.
I’m sincerely disturbed at the amount of cognitive dissonance this man has. How many mental hoops does he have to jump through each day to justify his absurd beliefs?!?
