The Republican presidential frontrunner has so much money, he can casually place $10,000 bets on national television.
DES MOINES — This should play well to the 99% crowd: without skipping a beat at the Saturday night debate here, Mitt Romney held out his hand and offered to bet Rick Perry $10,000 that he didn’t change the health care text in his book..
In a throwback to debates from the late summer, Perry was attacking Romney over a claim that Romney changed the text his book, No Apology between hardback and softcover editions to delete a line about taking his Massachusetts health care plan to the whole country.
Romney said the story was not true and bet Perry $10,000 Perry couldn’t prove.
The Democrats are jumping all over this, and rightfully so. Remember when McCain couldn’t count all of the houses he owns? This is just as bad.
