Mitt Romeny, Life Long Hunter

Mitt Romney is sure going to impress those hunters:

In a question-and-answer session Tuesday in Keene, N.H., Romney spoke of his experience with hunting in a manner that suggested a close affiliation with the sport.

“I purchased a gun when I was a young man. I’ve been a hunter pretty much all my life,” he told a man sporting a National Rifle Association cap.

What does “all my life” mean?

Yet the former Massachusetts governor’s hunting experience came during two trips at the bookends of his 60 years: as a 15-year-old, when he hunted rabbits with his cousins on a ranch in Idaho, and last year, when he shot quail on a fenced game preserve in Georgia.

The 2006 trip was an outing with major donors to the Republican Governors Association, which Romney headed at the time.

Does this mean Romney was trying to mislead anyone. Of course not:

An aide said Wednesday that Romney was not trying to mislead anyone, although he confirmed Romney had been hunting only on those occasions in his life.
