"Would you see that one of those chocolate . . . uh . . . uh . . . 'goodies' finds its way into our car."
~ Mitt Romney on a campaign stop in Iowa
May I have one of those...things you people seem to enjoy so much? The circular dough-based objects with the coating of C6H12O6...I mean liquified sucrose that has hardened to create a protective barrier. They look...edible

He looked like he had a bad case of the vapor lock when staring at that donut.

Those doughnuts weren't the right size.
~ comment by Baconzgood on Wonkette
You'd think with all the dressing up as a cop that he's done, identifying doughnuts would come more readily to him.

It should come as no surprise that Mitt Romney suffered a mental block when he tried to say the word "doughnut" at an Iowa diner Friday. We've been seeing the warning signs of Romney's problems with food for months. When Romney dares to eat a slice of pizza, he pulls off the cheese. He "relished" KFC, but he pulls off the skin. You know another term for the cheese on pizza and the skin on fried chicken? The "good parts." It's time to admit it: The Republican presidential nominee has food issues.

Really, Romney doesn't know what the word is for donut. That's like Kerry asking for a fork for his Philly SteakandCheese.

Mitt Romney couldn't find the name for donut, so after a few seconds of stuttering he just called it a "chocolate goodie" #MittstheTits2012

Romney struggles to identify a chocolate donut: buzzfeed.com/mckaycoppins/m… He really was beamed in from outer space, wasn't he?

As some pointed out, Mitt Romney not recognizing donut means he mustn't have walked around Boston. Dunkin' Donuts every 20 ft here @Lawrence

Romney would be the most anti-cop president ever. He wants to fire you, and he doesn't even know what a donut is.
