In an article that trips over itself to fawn over former Republican presidential candidate and current multi-millionaire Mitt Romney, the Washington Examiner goes to great pains to say that for a man worth millions he is a very “uncomplicated” person.
The article even quotes him about his very humble favorite food.
“My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat,” he told a gathering of supporters as they joined him recently for a casual dinner organized by his campaign. “My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best, and I like hamburger next best.”
Romney is currently running to replace Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) who is retiring.
The Twitterverse was rather amused:
Mitt Romney says his favorite meat is hot dog followed by hamburger. Mr. Moneybags is trying way too hard to connect with the all of us commoners.

Mitt Romney: “My favorite food is hot dogs and whatever beer you poor people like the most. Except I don’t drink beer because I’m Mormon, and we don’t do drugs.”
