Mitt Romney: “Can I Win Iowa?” Voice From Above: All Signs Point To No

An amusing moment on the campaign trail today for Mitt Romney:

In a karmic omen of doom Mitt Romney asked an Iowa crowd if he could win the state when the room had to be evacuated due to a fire alarm.

Romney had just asked the crowd, “Can I win Iowa?” Then a fire alarm went off which prompted Mitt Romney to put his leadership on display by saying, “I believe in following safety first, so I would. … This is going to keep on going. … You know, discretion is the better part of valor, so I think we ought to be very careful and very carefully go outside.”

Mitt Romney asked the crowd if he can win Iowa and if you believe in messages from the divine, God answered I don’t think so.
