    Not a fan of Romney, but I assumed he was joking.

    Tough to say what Romney means when he says anything...a) he was joking; b) he was serious; c) all of the above; d) none of the above.

    Well viewing the shenanigans from outside of your country it seems that Romney is looking butter and butter :D

    If he had competent and assertive advisers or handlers, they long ago would have told him that he should never attempt to tell a joke. He really does not have any humor skills.

    That is the key.

    I too think it was a horribly failed attempt at making light of a serious situation (wife a passenger in a genuine emergency aircraft).

    Sound bite wise it sounds like an idiot trying to be holier than thou.

    At the risk of turning this into some kind of political flamewar, a lot of the stuff he says "off the cuff" just makes him sound like a condescending out of touch idiot -- I think it was obvious he desperately needed someone to tell him to STFU after that $10k bet comment during the debate.

    In a world where your opponents are just hanging on your every word waiting to take what you say out of context and turn it against you, I would imagine that he should be more conscious about the things he says.
