|Willard Mitt Romney used the noun "tumult" over nine times in the debate at Lynn University. He used the noun improperly. Where I come from in New Jersey, we call that "talking out of your ass."|
Is Romney smarter than a 5th grader?
During the debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida, I heard Willard Mitt Romney use the word “tumult” at least 9 times, and then I got tired of counting.
Romney said “we’ve watched this tumult” and “this is a region in tumult” and “we have tumult,” and never used the noun properly. The man barely knows how to speak.
Do we want a President who can’t speak properly? Do we want a President who doesn’t have command of the english language? Do we want a President who constantly has to apologize because he “misspoke.” Do we want a President who is smarter than a 5th grader?
