And people say he's out of touch...

Is anyone else picturing his dad as the boss from Mad Men that dresses up in blackface for his own amusement?

Cena_mark
He's rich. I'm sure he paid others to wear black face for him.

Rodents of Unusual Size
You're right. What was I thinking?

motherfucker makes $57,000 a day. i really enjoy reminding republicans who fervently defend him as an everyman of that.

He needs to start wearing cowboy hats. That'll win over the working class voters.

Red, white, and blue bolo tie.

The man needs a rhinestone vest and some fucking denim. Denim anything. And stat!

Rudy
Actually, there's a funny story he tells about cowboy hats. It seems one morning there was this homeless guy who was sleeping in front of his mansion gates and as Mitt opened the window of his limo to spit on the guy, he accidentally knocked the cowboy hat off of the head of this oil tycoon he was riding with and spilled his expensive scotch all over his suit! How they laughed!

I guess you had to be there but unfortunately you will never make enough money to be in that situation.

Funny story: Once, I gave someone a rhinestone vest. But then it turned out that it was actually diamonds that it was studded with! On dinosaur leather, which is very hard to come by. I didn't even look at the pricetag! My friend with his new diamond and dinosaur leather vest had a good laugh about that one!

harumph harumph's heard among the fat white guys in leatherback chairs smoking stogies.

Oh and "my father the president of an automobile company"...managed to say that while choking on the silver spoon.

I was all ready to rip on old George Romney, but then I found this little gem on his Wikipedia page:

After initial wariness, he developed a good relationship with United Automobile Workers leader Walter Reuther,[43] and AMC workers also benefited from a then-novel profit-sharing plan.[82] Romney was one of only a few Michigan corporate chiefs to support passage and implementation of the state Fair Employment Practices Act.[61]

Turns out he was a dirty socialist!!!!!!!!!

The Mothership
That wasn't funny at all.

I wish someone would just buy Mitt a monocle already.

Not since Sarah Palin was selected by McCain as a VP candidate, have I seen such blatant self destructive tendencies.
Cena_mark
The Republican Primary has become nothing but an exercise in self destruction, where their candidates are forced to go so far to the right they can't win any moderates in November.

I read about this, and wanted to watch it, but there was a long ad for Goldman Sachs before the clip so I closed the window.

This is less about being out of touch, and more about what was once called "pissing in your ear". You see, he can. And so he does. He's been doing it all his life, and look at where he is. It will be interesting to see if he can buy the White House. Wouldn't be the first time.
Hooker
The Goldman Sachs ad is part of the story.

TeenerTot
Well...I guess, at least he's not pretending to be something he's not.
He's a rich douche and talks like one.

Where is the video?
Caminante Nocturno
The villains in Captain Planet were less cartoonish caricatures than this guy. Plunder/Greedly 2012!
Rodents of Unusual Size
Starring Mitt Romney as Looten Plunder, Rush Limbaugh as Hoggish Greedly, Anne Coulter as Dr. Blight, Rick Perry as Verminous Scum, Rick Santorum as Sly Sludge, Rick Perry as Captain Pollution, and John McCain as Duke Nukem. Special guest starring Tony Blair as MAL.

Sanest Man Alive
"Santorum as Sly Sludge"

I certainly never expected a good pun from anything to do with Captain Planet, but here you are.

Hammer Falls
I'm convinced. I won't pretend to understand why, but the Republicans don't want this election. Maybe it doesn't fit into their long-term plans later on, I don't know...
Cena_mark
You'd think Santorum would be convinced by some of the party bosses to step out by now.

IrishWhiskey
There's no chance of winning without getting the base mobilized, which Santorum is doing, and Romney can't. If it were just Romney, none of their core voters would have been attending those partisan rallies and speeches about how Obama is Hitler who wants to put the Muslims in charge so he can wipe out Christianity. Glenn Beck used to do it, but he fizzled out.

As soon as the convention is done, they'll shift to anti-Obama full-time, and Republican voters will line up behind Romney just like they did the even more liberal John McCain. The tea party isn't really about voting for things or people, it's about voting against the change that scares them so much.

Cena_mark
Leading to a no-win situation no matter how you look. Either you can't mobilize the base, but win the moderates. Or you mobilize the base and lose the moderates.

memedumpster
The Republicans don't want government. They want a corporate slave-owning global kleptocracy overseen by Christian white supremacy (Jesus being Ayn Rand, not some desert Jew).

Did he put him in a plastic container on top of the car and drive all day on the highway?

To sum up:

- Romney's dad was head of American Motors

- American Motors had two factories in Wisconsin and a factory in Michigan

- Romney's dad shut down the factory in Michigan and moved all production to Wisconsin

- Romney's dad later ran for governor of Michigan

- At a political parade, Romney's dad had a high-school band playing ahead of him.

- The band didn't know the Michigan fight song.

- The band DID know the Wisconsin fight song, so they played that instead.

- The campaign staff freaked out and made the band stop playing it so the voters wouldn't be reminded of how Romney's dad yanked their jobs away and sent them to Wisconsin.

Romney tells this story while chuckling and chortling because, you know, it's so funny. His dad WAS elected governor of Michigan, by the way. I don't know.

I wonder whether or not that high school band REALLY didn't know the Michigan fight song. I mean, surely, they would have been using a local high-school band?
