Romney and His Foxtrotter

A mole gives Gawker video of Mitt Romney and Sean Hannity bantering before the taping of a Fox News interview in February.

"Of note: Romney professes his and his wife Ann's well-known love of horseriding, praising the qualities of the 'Austrian Warmbloods' that his wife rides -- they are 'dressage' horses, he notes -- while maintaining his own preference for the 'smoother gait' of his own 'Missouri foxtrotter.' Now there's nothing wrong with Mitt and his wife loving horseback riding. But remember this video next time Romney attacks Obama for golfing. The inherent elitism and snootiness of golf is NOTHING compared to competitive horseback riding. And I think Mitt loses points with the GOP base for his correct pronunciation of dressage. To GOP-voter ears it sounds not only gay, but even worse, French."

BuzzFeed isolates the part where Romney tries to do an impression of a gay man asking for a pink tie.
