Mitt Romney’s 99 Headline Problems

Mitt Romney’s got 99 problems (but a bitch ain’t one). But “Romney’s Pesky Pooch problem” comes in at #67. (“Romney’s Woman Problem” comes in at #77.) Not sure if this list of headlines says more about Mitt Romney, his campaign or the (lack of) creativity among copy editors at the nations leading news organizations.

Eric Randall at Boston Magazine couldn’t help but notice that the “Politician’s [something] problem” was a fairly easy headline to write and that Mitt Romney seemed to be getting more than his fair share. So in a nod to Jay Z he listed 99 of Mitt Romney’s problem headlines.
