But Romney wasn’t always so down on his alma mater. He used to brag about his tenure there regularly, and so did his wife, Ann:
MITT ROMNEY: Harvard has a terrific program, they call it the joint degree program. … You can apply to the business school and the law school. You can get into both. You can take five years of educational training in four years.
ANN ROMNEY:He graduated from Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School, that he went to at the same time. It takes also a great mental capacity to do that kind of thing.
Watch a compilation:
Romney did not forget he went to Harvard. The jab exposes what seems to be a deliberate strategy of taking Romney’s biggest weakness and used them to attack Obama. Just this week, he’s accused Obama of being out of touch and a flip flopper, two of the biggest narratives against Romney. But rarely are they so transparently and audaciously hypocritical as the Harvard line.
