    I wish this was on AC360, the caption would go:
    "Here is Mitt Romney demonstrating his planned cuts to pork barrel spending."

    Who cares? Why is it news that he ate pork? Next are we going to hear if they install the candidates toilet paper over or under? That should be included in the debates also. It should show their personalities too.

    If he knows how to cut one then he probably knows how to kill one just like I do

    If I hadn't seen the picture? I would have misunderstood this article's headline. LOL! Thought at first they were talking about another attack by Mitt on Gingrich.

    What was his campaign committee thinking? Did they really think this would make a great photo-op? This brings up images of "Mitt the Ripper." It also reminds people of the road trip he had with his dog.

    He even had a TASTE of the roast pig? Such an alien foodstuff, and Mitt was brave enough to taste it? Strange, "un-American" food? What a brave man! THIS is truly newsworthy, CNN! Keep up the good work! Next you know he will eat chop suey! But I bet you won't see him bite into a taco...

    LOL! We all know R-money's servants usually handle this job. However, our Little Princess is wearing his "I'm just a regular workin' guy like you (except when I make thousands of dollars in my sleep)" shirt.
