Mitt Romney Announces Joseph Kony as 2012 Running Mate
Mitt Romney can’t seem to do anything right.
After claiming he was just an “everyday Joe,” the former Governor of Massachusetts attempted to make a $10,000 bet with Rick Perry over healthcare, told NASCAR fans he’s friends with several team owners, and of course, announced he didn’t care about the poor.
But the GOP candidate’s past misspeaks pale in comparison to his latest gaffe.
While campaigning in Alabama last night, the 65-year old was asked who he’d select as his running mate if he was chosen to oppose President Obama in the 2012 general election.
“I haven’t decided, but someone who has really caught my eye lately is a young man by the name of Joseph Kony.”
This morning Romney apologized after learning that Kony, a Ugandan guerrilla group leader and head of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), is infamous for ordering the abduction of children to become sex slaves and soldiers.
“I was looking for a game changer, but probably should’ve done more research,” admitted Romney. “In my defense, I’ve seen so many KONY 2012 posters and lawn signs, I just assumed people were pulling for the guy.”
