Romney and his NASCAR owner friends

The socialist press is getting a lot of mileage out of Romney's comments about being friends with NASCAR owners. CBS News:
    Asked by the AP reporter if he follows NASCAR, Romney responded, "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."
Hmmm, interesting. The far-left is seizing on yet another opportunity to badmouth somebody who isn't socialist. What happened when Bill Clinton demonstrated the same type of behavior -- actually far, far worse -- regarding NASCAR? Nothing. The socialist press didn't care at all.

The ludicrous liberal bias in the press would be comical if the vast majority of our population weren't grossly uninformed. What would the country look like if the press was neutral? Very few Democrats in office, for sure. Because most people pay little attention to the news and world events, and tend to believe everything they get from the socialist press -- 85% of the press in the U.S. is far-left -- I'll spell it out for everyone. Here's what Bubba Clinton did, which resulted in mostly yawns from the socialist press. From CBC:
    President Clinton granted a pardon Friday to Rick Hendrick, the NASCAR team owner who was banished from the sport for a year after pleading guilty to mail fraud. Hendrick, a Charlotte automobile dealer and head of Hendrick Motorsports, was sentenced in 1997 for his role in the American Honda Motor Co. bribery and kickback scandal.
Bubba, if you remember, was criticized for the 59 pardons he issued in 2000 when he was leaving office. Marc Rich was the most infamous, but I think the Hendrick pardon is applicable here, since the socialist press is making sure you know about Romney knowing NASCAR owners, and therefore he's not a "regular guy." Rick Hendrick is probably the most successful of all NASCAR owners. He's the team owner of Jeff Gordon, and was the one who brought Gordon into the sport. Hendrick is also the team owner of Jimmie Johnson, who recently won five NASCAR championships in a row.

Here's a bit more on Hendrick and Marc Rich:
    A U.S. House committee has been investigating whether Clinton's pardon of fugitive Marc Rich was a payoff for donations from Rich's ex-wife to the library. Those investigators were alerted on Feb. 26 to a possible link between a contribution Bank of America made to Clinton's presidential library and Hendrick's pardon, the application of which included a reference letter from Bank of America Chairman and CEO Hugh McColl Jr.
I know I sound arrogant when I call the entire country "uninformed," but seriously, did you know about the Hendrick pardon? The press was quick to point out Romney being friends with NASCAR owners, but did they mention Clinton's activities in the same story? Not doing so is dishonest.
