Meeting with fellow Republican [Louisiana Governor Bobby] Jindal in the flooded Lafitte area of Jefferson Parish, Romney said, “I appreciate the chance to be here. I have a lot of questions for you. I’m here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to what’s going here, so that people around the country know that people down here need help.”
...He then asked, according to a journalists' pool report of the visit: “Did the water come from the sky, or the rivers, or the ocean?”
Update, September 25, 2012: It seems the National Journal deleted the article, so here's a link to the same article on the CBS News web site: Romney in New Orleans asks where the water came from.
The comment brought to mind another observation about the natural wonders that Romney made during the primaries, when he returned home to Michigan and remarked, "I love this state. The trees are the right height."
And of course, now we have another incident along these lines from Romney: Romney Doesn’t Know Why Airplane Windows Won’t Open, Calls The Closed Window Policy ‘A Real Problem.’
Romney was quoted in the Times speaking about his chevalier Ann's brush with danger last week, when a plane on which she was a passenger was forced to make an emergency landing after an electrical fire caused the cabin to fill with smoke.
"When you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go, exactly, there's no - and you can't find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don't open. I don't know why they don't do that. It's a real problem. So it's very dangerous."
