And hey, it's not even a post about Mitt Romney!
Wisconsin U.S. Senate candidate Eric Hovde told the local media he was tired of hearing sob stories in the media about the poor. He chided the Mainstream Media to start writing stories about the national debt and other things he considers “real problems”. Hovde was speaking to the Greater Brookfield Chamber of Commerce when he made the remark.There's even video! The fun starts at 13:45.
During a Q&A session, Hovde spotted a reporter in the crowd and chided him for writing too many stories on low income individuals.
“I see a reporter here. I just pray that you start writing about these issues. I just pray. Stop always writing about, ‘Oh, the person couldn’t get, you know, their food stamps or this or that.’ You know, I saw something the other day — it’s like, another sob story, and I’m like, ‘But what about what’s happening to the country and the country as a whole?’ That’s going to devastate everybody."
For a guy who's a great candidate on paper, Eric Hovde sure is a train wreck in real life.
