(Newser) – A new/old potential wealth gaffe from the mouth of Mitt Romney. The GOP candidate apparently gushed about his wife's much-deserved time off the campaign trail spent riding her "Austrian warmblood" horses (though he prefers his own "Missouri foxtrotter"); each costs as much as a pricey sports car. He made the latest revelation before a February interview on Fox—which aired shortly after his campaign slammed President Obama for wasting too much time golfing. He and Sean Hannity even guffaw about the footage of their pre-interview primping getting leaked. "You don't want to have a John Edwards moment," Hannity quips.

The video nugget is likely the first of many to come from a Fox News "mole," now working for Gawker. The mole plans to keep his/her day job while tattling on his/her employer—and, apparently, news subjects. The mole hopes to leave Fox "sooner rather than later," he/she notes. "But I can't just leave quietly, can I? Where's the fun in that?" Click to see the video of Romney prepping for the Hannity interview.

Is this were he gets all his horse shit to sling? What an out of touch piece of human being Romney is.

Talk about being out of touch he just doesn't get it, 98% of all Americans make less than $250,000 a year and don't have extremely expensive Dressage horses for their fat aging wives to ride. Once again Mitt was born with a silver foot in mouth. I can't wait to see his running mate.

Mittens latest faux-pas reminds me of another silver-spoon Republican, Mitch Daniels of Indiana. When elected as Governor he wouldn't live in the Governor's Mansion because it didn't meet his standards and chose to live in his $13 million mansion until the state spent several million to renovate the Governor's Mansion. This didn't resonate with constituents in a high unemployment state.
