Ann Romney's plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Colorado moments ago ... after a fire broke out in the cockpit and the cabin filled with smoke.

According to a Romney spokesperson, the plane landed safely and no one onboard suffered any injuries.

The rep posted a statement on Twitter saying, "All okay. Thank goodness."

Upon arrival, the fire department rushed to the plane in an effort to find the source of the smoke.  A spokesperson for the Denver Fire Dept. said the smoke came from a "small fire in the cockpit."

The plane was heading from Omaha to Los Angeles.

Mitt Romney was not onboard the plane, he was in Nevada during the mid-air emergency ... where he was appearing at a fundraiser.

Well, sure. The fumes from that much Romney Campaign bullsh*t were bound to catch fire eventually. Thank God there were some "47%-ers" to put the fire out.

Mity did it. Mitt was trying to crash the plane, he'd win the election due to a landslide of sympathy votes.

I'm really, really, really, glad this plane didn't go down in flames. Can you imagine the sympathy votes that would pour in for Romney?!

How 'bout a few chapter and verses from His Prince Michael for the occasion. You know, something in the "divine intervention" area!

She probably accidentally left a giant stack of cash next to the coffee pot burner and it started smoldering.

As usual, Obama fans are all class. Now go back out to your mailbox and look for your Obama check.

Uh    

Romney seemingly doesn't have to have his taxes filed by.April. Seems the wealthy are always granted an extension, so much so you have to wonder why they have to file for one at all. Simple..If your poor or middle class, and miss the April deadline be prepared for a large fine. If you're wealthy you will continue to be, no pesky fines to interfere with your lifestyle. And justice for all.
