Romney's sugar fix for 7 stop day

Bethlehem, New Hampshire (CNN) - Mitt Romney prepared for a punishing day of events throughout northern New Hampshire Thursday by inducing sugar shock.

The GOP candidate warned an audience at an Elks Lodge in Bethlehem he might talk more quickly than normal because he'd just finished his own personal breakfast of champions: Frosted Flakes cereal, toast with honey and chocolate milk.

"I am kind of high on sugar this morning and that may speed things up a bit," he said.

The campaign booked a packed day for the former Massachusetts governor, who will make seven stops on Thursday alone and sit for several interviews.

But the governor will traverse New Hampshire in style on his new campaign bus. The Romney campaign-mobile boasts a small kitchen area and 24 seats.

The coach was crafted by Premier Transportation and is - naturally - called the Reagan model. Other bus models are named for different presidents, such as Jefferson, Grant or Monroe.

Pictures of the governor on the campaign trail line the walls, along with a large banner with an image of George Romney, the candidate's father.

Romney's day will be largely consumed by retail stops, where he will chat with voters.

Next week the candidate will take the bus to Iowa, where he will campaign Dec. 28 through Dec. 30.

    Whatever works for Romney because I want to see Romney working for us. ( Which would be a nice change because Obama thinks we all work for him...)

    "The GOP candidate warned an audience at an Elks Lodge in Bethlehem he might talk more quickly than normal because he'd just finished his own personal breakfast of champions: Frosted Flakes cereal, toast with honey and chocolate milk."

    This is about as interesting as anything else he's talked about during his campaign tour thus far ... absolutely newsworthy, that - what Romney had for breakfast, I mean. Well, it would be if I were a Romney groupie, anyway. Just curious, though ... guy's running for President, isn't he?

    I wouldn't feed my kids that. Check that, past tense. I never fed my kids anything like that. First and foremost, all sugar coated cereals were banned. Wheaties and raisins is what I grew up on. Chocolate milk was banned from the home, only to be consumed in a restaurant when on vacation. My kids ate fruit, like a banana, apple or melon, every day that we had something fresh. And, I made sure that they drank a glass of juice and milk. Never put honey on toast, though. It was always fresh jams, which taste better than jellies, anyway.

    That sugar high may explain today, but what about every other day? Spineless flip flopper.

    Who gives a flying rat's brown star? Are you going to do a follow up report on whether it effected his regular-ness next?

    Really? The "fast-talking" salesman is going to "speed up" when he should be "slowing down?" Please!!!

    The Reagan model has a special hydraulic arm that can throw the middle class under the bus without the candidate getting his hands dirty.
