Inspired by Mitt Romney couldn’t have remembered Detroit milestone: he wasn’t born (The Star 2/27/12) and Mitt Romney Recalls Parade That Occurred Before He Was Born (Huffington Post 2/27/12) about Mitt Romney’s vivid memories of the auto industry’s 50 Year Golden Jubilee, even though it took place 9 months before he was born.
“I remember as a little boy… I think my dad had a job like being the grand master or whatever of the 50th celebration of the automobile in Detroit. They painted Woodward Avenue with gold paint (my memory is a little foggy here; I was probably four or something like that), and had the cars go down Woodward Avenue. I know they still have the parade of cars every year.” — Mitt Romney
The media’s up in arms and I just don’t know why
People claim Mitt Romney’s been caught in a lie.
Mitt fondly recalls an event nine months before he was born
(“The streets were painted gold, I could have sworn.”)
Which means what he said was in fact not a deception.
Mitt really was at Detroit’s Golden Jubilee,
You just would have needed an ultrasound to see.
So what Romney said really was true
(Talk about a womb with a view).
