The Hill's Alicia Cohn reports on the oops.
Mitt Romney clearly did not mean to "diss" a beloved local bakery near Pittsburgh, Pa. this week, but Democrats are leaping on his comments as they work to paint the likely GOP nominee as out-of-touch with voters.
Romney, meeting with local residents Tuesday at an outdoor roundtable event in Bethel Park, joked about some cookies and launched yet another attack based on what critics call his aloofness to the daily lives of Americans.
“I’m not sure about these cookies,” Romney said, and continued to tease one of the women at the table: “Did you make those cookies? You didn’t, did you? No. No. They came from the local 7-Eleven bakery or wherever.”
Btw, have you tried the new 7-Eleven pizzas for about $5? I still go with the Little Caesars Hot 'N Ready, but might be up for a brief, summer fling.
