    "When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous."

    -Mitt Romney'


    He HAS to be joking, right?


    right?

    Re: Airplane Windows

    Since we don't hear his exact words, just a quote....I'm SERIOUSLY asking if he is joking or not.

    It reads like a joke-ish kind of thing, then I take into account that there is no punchline, and he is talking about his wife almost dying, and I ask again...

    Is he being serious?




    (The twitter jokes are frickin hilarious)

    Mitt Romney's first act as president: Air Force One turned into a convertible.

    My wife was almost in a car wreck, and it got me wondering, why don't cars have wings?!

    Mitt Romney Wonders Why Ann Romney's Airplane Windows Don't Roll Down

    I hope hes joking but i'm afraid hes not.

    Mitt Romney Wonders Why Ann Romney's Airplane Windows Don't Roll Down

    You can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open,

    Romney said the biggest problem in a distressed aircraft is that "the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous."

    The main reason airplane windows don't open is because there isn't enough oxygen at cruising altitude to keep passengers alive. (The fear of window or cabin failures, which would lead to potentially fatal hypoxia, is why many planes are equipped with emergency oxygen masks.)

    If the dude is joking about his wife almost dying... we have a sick SICK man running for the GOP. If he doesn't understand why windows don't open on a plane, we have a dumb DUMB man running for the GOP.

    Did Romney Really Say This?

    "I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don't think she knows just how worried some of us were," Romney said. "When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go, exactly, there's no — and you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that. It's a real problem."

    The other reason, Willard, is that if you open the windows, then the air pressure will suck you out. Or, if you are well-buckled in, the lack of oxygen would make it very difficult for real human beings to do what we like to call "breathing."

    When is the Republican Party going to figure out that it's handed itself over to the HAL 9000? What I mean is:

    Dave Bowman: Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?
    HAL: Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
    Dave Bowman: Open the pod bay doors, HAL.
    HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
    Dave Bowman: What's the problem?
    HAL: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
    Dave Bowman: What are you talking about, HAL?
    HAL: This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
    Dave Bowman: I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.
    HAL: I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
    Dave Bowman: [feigning ignorance] Where the hell did you get that idea, HAL?
    HAL: Dave, although you took very thorough precautions in the pod against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
    Dave Bowman: Alright, HAL. I'll go in through the emergency airlock.
    HAL: Without your space helmet, Dave? You're going to find that rather difficult.
    Dave Bowman: HAL, I won't argue with you anymore! Open the doors!
    HAL: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.

    Romney knows nothing about the real world. He's a moron. Detatched from the real world. His ignorance about how people live is stunning and dangerous, IMO.

    So you think he simply mis-spoke here?

    Wistah, I may be having lunch with this week with a friend who I think attended the fundraiser -- I'll see it he can provide any more color to the story.
