ABC says that Mitt Romney is now trying to run away from his pretty, pretty dancing pony and its big Olympic adventure:

"It’s a big, exciting experience for my wife. I have to tell you, this is Ann’s sport,” he said. “I’m not even sure which day the sport goes on. She will get the chance to see it, I will not be watching the event. I hope her horse does well."

So it's not his horse. He wants to be clear that it's not his horse, people, even though he pays for it. It's his special wife's special horse. But he doesn't know what time his special wife's special horse is taking part in the Olympics, which will probably be one of the biggest moments of his wife's whole life. He's not planning on watching the competition, either, because he doesn't care about his special wife's special dancing horse which he pays for. And by the way, the New York Times reports, the public and media is not allowed to see his special wife's special horse before the competition. But I guess this is understandable, right? Romney's got a big foreign trip going on, and so he's got a lot of foreign policy to discuss, speeches to give and so on, right?

I don’t want to refer to any comments made by leaders representing other nations. Nor do I want to describe foreign policy positions I might have while I’m on foreign soil. I think discussions of foreign policy should be made by the president and the current administration not by those that are seeking office.

Okay. So we're not supposed to look at or think about Romney's pretty little dancing pony, and we're not supposed to talk about foreign policy during his foreign policy trip, either. I guess we're just going to have to find some other way to entertain ourselves, then.
