When Mitt Romney has an original observation its always worth repeating.
When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. [ Los Angeles Times]
Gov. Romney made this amazing comment in the context of Ann Romney’s surely frightening and possibly dangerous experience of being on a plane when the cabin filled with smoke due to an electrical problem. I understand his concern. But like many of his comments, this one seems weird at best and downright crazy at worst.
It should be noted that comedian Dennis Miller was at the same event with the former moderate governor of Massachusetts. Perhaps Miller was Romney’s warm up act.
