US – Racial Politics – Romney Campaign Way Too Wordy – Why Can’t It Just Say What It Really Means? – 26 July 2012

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/mitt-romney/9424524/Mitt-Romney-would-restore-Anglo-Saxon-relations-between-Britain-and-America.html

“…[O]ne [of Romney’s advisors] suggested that Mr Romney was better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Mr Obama, whose father was from Africa. ‘We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,’ the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: ‘The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have’.”

You see, this is why parsimonious writing skills are so important. I mean, who takes a a whole paragraph to say “DID YOU KNOW BARACK OBAMA IS A BLACK GUY?”
