Mitt Romney Sent Poker Set By Democrats

Mitt Romney Sent Poker Set By DemocratsFollowing the opening afforded to them by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the Democratic party has wasted no time jumping on his recent political gaffe.
Recently, during a TV political debate Republican nomination hopeful Mitt Romney, 64, offered rival candidate, Texas governor Rick Perry a $10,000 bet that he hadn’t revised his book in relation to healthcare.
The huge wager, declined by his Christian evangelical rival, was the first time a bet has been offered in over 50 years of political debates on US television. Romney also attracted much criticism for his extravagance during a time of high unemployment and a growing divide between the country’s rich and poor.
Taking full advantage of the political capital presented to them, the Democrats  responded by hiring a plane to fly over Romney’s fundraiser in New York with an enormous banner reading; “Bet you 10k Romney’s Out of Touch.”
Now the Democrats have followed up on last Wednesday’s prank by sending a poker chips set to Romney’s Las Vegas campaign office, containing $10,000 in fake poker chips, and lined with fake $10,000 bills featuring the image of  Romney.
Commenting on the prank, state Democratic party spokesman Zach Hudson said:
“While $10,000 may not be much to Mitt Romney, we wanted to make sure he could easily place a bet the size of two months salary for the average Nevada household the next time he was in town.”
Mitt Romney comes from a privileged background with his father having been at one time the CEO of American Motors. Mitt Romney has since gone on to amass a $250 million fortune and even spent $42m of his own money during his 2008 campaign.
However, Romney has thus far failed to get his approval rate above 25%, not only because of his Mormonism, but also because of people’s mistrust over his enormous wealth. It would now seem Romney has even further to go before he can live down his latest faux pas.
