Romney Spends Evening at Red Lobster, Envisions Being Poor
By Will Schnabel
BOSTON — Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney spent the evening dining with his family at Red Lobster in a political attempt to empathize with the lower class.
After much discussion, Romney managed to convince his wife and his five sons that it was in the better interest of his campaign to be seen at a “lower tier” eating establishment.
“My dad’s a genius,” said Romney’s son, Tagg. “If this doesn’t show America that my dad is a man of the people, I’m truly not sure what can.”
In the evening’s only true gaffe, Romney’s youngest son, Ben, arrived in a tie and was escorted out immediately.
This is not the first time the Romney campaign has attempted to reach out to the poor. The hope is that this stint will be more successful in garnering the votes of less fortunate Americans than purchasing just a medium popcorn while seeing Atlas Shrugged Pt. 2.
At the conclusion of the dinner, the family was seen high-fiving while being chauffeured into its pre-arranged limo. Governor Romney reportedly treated his family to banana splits in celebration of the evening’s success.
