Romney's vacation homes secure him wins in Guam, Northern Marianas

GOP primary frontrunner Mitt Romney is celebrating more wins today, after having secured delegates from Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, which are located somewhere in the Pacific ocean between, uh, Hawaii and the Philippines? Hang on, we need to check Google Maps... yep, that's right! Pretty good guess, wasn't it?
Republican voters in Guam say that Romney understands what they're going through better than any of the other candidates, largely due to the fact that he owns a slew of vacation homes on the islands. However, many political analysts are predicting that the islands will strongly favor President Obama in the general election, because unlike any of the GOP candidates, President Obama has actually been to Guam and the Norther Marianas.
“Mitt Romney owns a few vacation homes down here. One of them is the biggest residence on the island of Guam,” said Manuel Taikanu, 37. “Locals refer to it as `the empty palace,' because Romney bought the home in the nineties and has since never visited it. But he at least owns property down here, and hires a full staff to maintain it even though he hasn't been here, so that got him votes.
As for the other candidates, Taikanu was rather skeptical. “Newt Gingrich seems like the kind of guy who would take his mistresses to Guam in the hopes of never being discovered. Ron Paul comes across as someone who'd build some freaky compound here in the jungle for his worshipers. And Rick Santorum? It's really, really hot here. He'd sweat to death in those sweater vests as soon as he stepped off the plane! Oh, and by the way, my name means `to have nothing to eat' in Chamorro. That was Matt Rock trying to be clever.” - Return to Previous Page
