Romney Claims He Doesn’t Understand What National Parks Are For
Governor Romney expressed puzzlement this week as to why we have national parks in Nevada.
Unless there’s a valid, and legitimate, and compelling governmental purpose, I don’t know why the government owns so much of this land. So I haven’t studied it, what the purpose is of the land…
But here’s the thing. Romney understands perfectly the purpose of having national parks.
He also tells stories about a family tradition of piling into the family’s Rambler – a car made by American Motors Corp., run by his father – and driving across the country. His mother, he says, would read from “Men to Match My Mountains,’’ a book about those who settled the American West.
“We went from national park to national park,’’ Romney said. “And they were teaching me to fall in love with America.’’
A Romney flip-flop. How shocking!Click here for reuse options!
