Le passé français de Mitt Romney

March 9, 2012

Le passé français de Mitt Romney
While America wrestled with Vietnam, when Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy were shot, young Mormon missionary Mitt Romney was knocking on doors in Bordeaux and Paris. What do the French have to say about that?

“Le candidat à l’investiture républicaine pour l’élection présidentielle américaine a été missionnaire mormon en France entre 1966 et 1968. Un passé parfois encombrant alors que les médias attisent les rivalités entre prétendants pour entretenir le suspense.”

Moon Over Miami

Moon Over Miami

Tonight, somewhere in Florida, Newton Leroy Gingrich is mooning over his GOP primary loss to Mitt Romney. An attempt to attract voters from the state’s aerospace industry by proposing a lunar colony ended in a sudden loss of gravitas. Pundit Charles Krauthammer calls that moon base speech Newt’s “Dukakis in the tank moment.”  [Youngsters: look here.]

The low Earth orbit of Space Cadet Gingrich wobbles toward Nevada’s Republican Caucus on Saturday. Meanwhile, tonight, the moon gleams above Biscayne Bay.

What Mitt and Newt Have in Common

What Mitt and Newt Have in Common

Republican rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have something in common. France.

Teenaged Newt Gingrich and his family lived in Orleans where his father Robert, a U.S. Army officer, was stationed. They appear to have lived there from 1958 to 1960, after a posting in Stuttgart.

Young Mitt spent 30 months (July 1966 to December 1968) in France as a Mormon missionary.

The two Republican presidential contenders may spend the next few months tearing each other apart, but they’ll always have Paris France.
