Political Wire:
    Romney’s Announcement Gaffe

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s (R) "choice of a museum honoring auto pioneer Henry Ford as the site of his presidential announcement was strongly criticized Monday by Jewish Democrats, who noted Ford's history of anti-Semitism," reports the AP.

    Romney, who formally launched his "presidential candidacy from the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan [today] was taken to task by The National Jewish Democratic Council,” who noted that Ford was an outspoken anti-Semite who was “bestowed with the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle by Adolf Hitler."
How is it possible Romney was not aware of this? Nevermind. I'm hoping for a long string of similarly tone deaf blunders.
