be allowed anywhere near the White House. I'm sure everyone here appreciates your bringing all these things to their attention just in case they were considering him for their vote. We should never elect a person who's spouse doesn't understand why airplane windows are sealed shut. Thanks for the warning.
Romney's wife, Ann, was in attendance, and the candidate spoke of the concern he had for her when her plane had to make an emergency landing Friday en route to Santa Monica because of an electrical malfunction.
"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."
I bet even Sarah Palin knows why you can't open the windows in an airplane. Holey moley....
