Mitt Romney Loves Cars More Than Jews

Wow. The Democrats lost absolutely no time in slamming Mitt Romney as a racist:

Republican Mitt Romney's 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.

The former Massachusetts governor, who is scheduled to formally launch his presidential candidacy from the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit on Tuesday, was taken to task by The National Jewish Democratic Council.

The council "is deeply troubled by Governor Romney's choice of locations to announce his presidential campaign," executive director Ira Forman said in a statement.

"Romney has been traveling the country talking about inclusiveness and understanding of people from all walks of life," Forman said. "Yet he chooses to kick (off) his presidential campaign on the former estate of a well-known and outspoken anti-Semite and xenophobe."

Forman said Romney's "embrace of Henry Ford and association of Ford's legacy with his presidential campaign raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Romney's words or his understanding of basic American history."

My bullshit meter almost exploded as I kept reading these libs' complaints. Theirs is the party that could care less if every Jew in Israel were wiped off of the map. They're the party whose base frequently derides Jews on any one of their left-wing blogs. Would they criticize someone for launching their campaign from the MLK Jr. Museum - after all, he was a know womanizer, and communist sympathizer.
