Romney to Obama: Let's Go Waterskiing GOP candidate would prefer to stay off the links By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted May 11, 2012 7:03 AM CDT 139 comments Comments Mitt Romney speaks at a campaign stop in Omaha, Neb.,Thursday, May 10, 2012. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong) (Newser) – Sounds like this presidential race could be decided at sea. Asked if he's as "hip" as Barack Obama, Mitt Romney said he'd skip out on golf with the president—but "I'll be happy to take him through a waterski course." Speaking on Fox News yesterday, he added, "we have different skills and different interests and different hobbies." The AFP calls it another "tone-deaf" comment emphasizing his riches, adding to a list that includes Romney's mentions of his wife's Cadillacs and his close friends who own NASCAR teams.
