Mitt Romney Made A Surprise Visit in Miami Today, and He Didn't Even Quote Fidel Castro This Time
It was a leftist elitists worst nightmare: Leading Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney surrounded by the artwork of leading hack artist Romero Britto. Yes, the scene on Lincoln Road as Ol' Mittens made a surprise fundraising stop at Britto's gallery space must have been something. Luckily for Romney though he didn't accidentally quote Fidel Castro like he has during previous Miami visits.
NBC Miami reports that Romney showed up at Britto's gallery sometime this afternoon. Romney, who is leading national polls for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, has been on a fundraiser tour of Florida this week. Yesterday, he held a much bigger fundraiser at Boca Raton, and is also expected to hit up Tampa and Orlando.
Back during one of his early trips to Miami during the 2008 campaign cycle Romney made a stop in Little Havana and told the crowd, "Patria o muerte, venceremos." Which is a trademark quote of Fidel Castro.
