Romney offers ride on ‘Hair Force One’ as donor prize

(CNN) -Mitt Romney's campaign announced Thursday that they're giving select supporters a chance to fly with the Republican presidential nominee on the candidate's charter plane dubbed "Hair Force One" by Ann Romney.

Mrs. Romney coined the term "Hair Force One" in December to honor her husband's famously coiffed mane.

In an email to supporters, Romney told contributors that two lucky donors would get chance to join him on his campaign plane for a day. The campaign does not specify exactly when the donors would be chosen or get to fly with the candidate.

"I don't know exactly what our itinerary will be, but if you're one of the winners - I can tell you it will be exciting," said Romney in the email. "And, who knows, maybe you and I will come up with a better name for the campaign plane."

Romney's official campaign plane was unveiled at a rally in Lakeland, Florida following the Republican National Convention last month.

CNN's Dana Davidsen and Rachel Streitfeld contributed to this report.

    "And, who knows, maybe you and I will come up with a better name for the campaign plane."

    Sounds great. How about the Flip Flop Turboprop? The Von Lyin' Express? Grand Cayman Airways? BS Air? All are appropriate.

    To attack Americans while they are in the act of being attacked/murdered is not just stupid. It's treasonous. Willard might have well said they are dead because they did something wrong. He is not presidential.... Can you imagine how those poor families are feeling. And, a man seeking the presidency criticized them while they were under attack and being murdered!!!!!!!!! Romney will NEVER be POTUS. NEVER!

    Winners will get a ride in the same luxury the Romney's dressage horse experienced on his way to the Olympics! You'll be treated as if you were an actual person – better than than those common folks who eat cheap food and only have one home. We'll all pretend you're good enough for us to remember you name or your face. We'll take your money and discard you like a used condom! Did I say that out loud?

    I'd rather stick rusty nails in my eyes. I can't imagine being confined with Romney – the brazen liar and crass opportunist, I'd be afraid his sleaze would rub off on me.

    I am sure a lot of domestic terrorist Mittens' terrorist friends who also attacked our embassies in Libya and Egypt would like to coordinate their efforts with Mittens' attack on our embassies.

    Romney is showing the real foreigner, that he is. Maybe, he should head home and drop out of this race. He's showing he is incapable of rising above any kind of sentiments, and displaying great honor and collective concern, instead of his narrow personal ambition. What happened to the good old " Americans are being killed abroad.There's is time for partisanship, but this time we stand with the president to condemn these attacks and support him in whatever decision he makes, bringing these killers to justice". Poor Romney, selfish ambition is so strong, he forgot we are still Americans.

    Oh God. What a joke. The mess we're in is no joke, but he will never understand that because he has money all over the world. If he paid taxes, we could all have jobs.

    He is disgusting. They will give him intel briefings starting next week. So? bachmann has been on intelligence committee for 4 years and she's still stupid. He can't get enough intelligence in the next 24 days to make me change my mind. He's all for himself and his wealthy buddies.

    24 days til early voting in my state.
    Obama/Biden 2012-2016 for a calm, intelligent, steady hand going forward.
