Josh Romney, third eldest son of Mitt Romney, is home safe today after his heroic rescue of a vehicle that flew past him at a high rate of speed, crashing into the kitchen of a home in Holladay, Utah on Thanksgiving evening.
The Holladay/holiday crash is receiving widespread coverage today after Romney tweeted this message on his Twitter account:
“Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful — Josh Romney (@joshromney) November 29, 2013.”
The thousands of people who have seen the photo and the tweet are scratching their heads and wondering just why Romney is thankful, and more importantly, why any good Samaritan, as he is clearly holding himself out to be, would be posing in front of a vehicle resting on its side from which four victims escaped with their lives.
Evidently, once he realized there was no imminent danger from the crash, Romney continued his spate of poor judgment by poking a little fun to relieve the tension.
The rest of the story has Romney joking. “I was just at the right place at the right time. However, the kitchen and the car weren’t so lucky.”
The driver of the car said he could not get over how calm and collected Josh Romney was after saving his car and he (the driver) was not at all averse to allowing Romney permission to use the photo at a later date if and when he (Romney, not the driver) decided to run for President.
Raters (Romney haters) who later dismissed the tweet as nothing more than another Romney family member’s feeble attempt at grabbing attention by posting a Humblebrag, point out that there aren’t many people who could stand at the scene of such a horrific crash and smile through it.
However, as one witness to the accident so eloquently stated, “Tonight, Josh Romney was given the ability to salvage his family’s g Josh Romney Races to Save Car from Fiery Crashood name by saving a vehicle, something his father was never able to do during his (Mitt Romney’s) recent presidential grab.”
