So, you think Newt Gingrich is going to be the Republican nominee? I’ll bet you $10,000 he won’t be.
And you think Jeb Bush or somebody else might still jump into the race at the last minute? I’ll bet you $10,000 you’re wrong.
And you believe Barack Obama will be a one-term president? Seriously, Dude or Dude-esse. You don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve got $10,000 says he gets re-elected.
Ten long ones a bet! That’s the way they throw money around the Romney household. Which makes it tough to play cards, golf, or bingo with any of them.
And which shows how totally out of touch Mitt Romney is with ordinary Americans. Ten grand may not be a lot of money for Mitt. But it’s one-third the total yearly income of your average Iowa voter.
It also shows how out of sync the Republican party is with working families. At the very time Republicans in Congress vote to deny middle-class Americans a $1,000 tax cut next year, one of the leading Republican candidates for president is willing to throw away $10,000, just for kicks.
You don’t think that will hurt Mitt Romney? I’ll bet you $10,000 – you’re wrong!
That’s my parting shot for today.
