Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney does an interview with the Motor Racing Network during his appearance at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 54th Daytona 500 race Daytona Beach

Without fail, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney gives America a verbal gaffe every week. He couldn't wait for this week to start before he put his foot into his mouth again.

Yesterday at Daytona 500, Romney made another quote that proves that he has no clue of what he is doing as a Presidential candidate. While walking around at the race track, an Associated Press reporter asked him if he follows the sport of NASCAR. Here's his reply.

"Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans."

If he would have stopped there, then there wouldn't have been any problem with his statement. He would have been seen as a fan of NASCAR. The problem is that he kept talking. Here's the rest of the quote.

"But I have some great friends that are NASCAR team owners."

What? Oh, he bases friendship solely upon how much money the person has.

This lack of discipline with his tongue directly correlates to how he would react if he were to become President. These proofs of his verbal blunders show that he does not have the proper discipline to make sound decisions. Voters, make the sound decision by not electing Mitt Romney.

In the past, Romney's campaign continues to claim that President Obama is out of touch with the American people. However, when a person points a finger at someone, then their are four fingers pointing back.
