Where is the Secret Service???
Wealthy GOP super PAC donor Foster Friess, fresh off announcing a conversion from Rick Santorum‘s corner to Mitt Romney’s, drew a little unwanted attention Wednesday when he used gun imagery to weigh in on the shifting state of the 2012 race.
“There are a lot of things that haven’t been hammered at because Rick and Mitt have been going at each other,” Friess said during an interview on Fox Business News. “Now that they have trained their barrels on President Obama, I hope his teleprompters are bulletproof.”
He quickly went on to admit that he “probably shouldn’t have said that.”
It’s not the first time Friess has created controversy during a media appearance.
In February, then a top surrogate for Santorum, Friess spoke with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell about what he described as the triviality of the contraception debate.
“This contraceptive thing, my gosh it’s such [sic] inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly,” he said.
He later apologized for the failed “joke.”
Jokes? The only thing people are laughing at is you sir. Sit!
