Here's a snippet of Tuesday's debate that we've mentioned before, but which bears mentioning again. In it, Mitt Romney, a candidate for the presidency of the United States who is also an adult, criticizes Barack Obama for not being "Mr. Coal."
"Look, voters, we all agree that the president should also be known as Mr. Coal or Mr. Oil. President Coal, we should call him. President Coal, Russia's on line one! That's the president you'll get if you vote for Willard 'Mitt' 'Coal' Romney!"
Yesterday, Barack Obama, an adult with children who leads the free world, responded.
Obama said voters should be skeptical of Romney’s embrace of coal, mocking him as “running around talking like he’s Mr. Coal,” as a crowd of 14,000 at Ohio University cheered him on.
“Does anybody ever actually look at that guy and think, man, he’s really into coal?” Obama asked the audience as he chuckled.
"Ha ha, look at this jerk! He's saying I'm not Mr. Coal? I'm, like, five times as much Mr. Coal as that guy! I talked to Biden about replacing him with a 10-gallon jug of high-octane gasoline, but Biden got all pissed off about it. But I tried, man. V.P. Mr. Gasoline. What's China going to say to that?"
