Window seat anyone?

I really thought Big City Lib was putting me on with this quote - or at least it was taken out of context. So I found the source and this is the exact quote:

“I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney said. “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. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver. But she’s safe and sound.” (emphasis added)

First, I am glad she is safe and sound. Second, I know that some Republicans wear their ignorance as a badge of honor, but really??? When I read this quote to a colleague, he responded by saying “and it’s because of people like Mitt that the windows don’t open!”

I vote for this to be the new Romney campaign slogan.
