American hero and Pert spokesperson Mitt “Mittens” Romney was apparently assaulted on a flight from Vancouver on Monday. He must’ve been trying to thwart a terrorist attack, right? Well, no. He was actually complaining about some guy’s seat back being reclined, and the guy off and smacked him.
Mitt Romney, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts, was physically assaulted Monday by a fellow passenger on a flight from Vancouver, Canada, to Los Angeles.
Romney, a 2008 presidential candidate and a potential 2012 contender, asked a passenger who was seated and reclining in front of his wife, Ann, to move his seat upright during take off.
“The passenger became physically violent. Governor Romney did not retaliate, but instead let the airline crew respond to the incident,” said Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom.
Romney was not injured, but those familiar with the incident told Fox News, “There was physical contact with Governor Romney.” Ann Romney was not touched in the incident.
