From the redlit thread:

You'll never live like common people,
you'll never do what common people do,
you'll never fail like common people,
you'll never watch your life slide out of view,
and dance and drink and screw,
because there's nothing else to do.

Sing along with the common people,
sing along and it might just get you through,
laugh along with the common people,
laugh along even though they're laughing at you,
and the stupid things that you do.
Because you think that poor is cool.

Is it actually possible for Romney to be more of an out of touch elitist?

No kidding.

ROMNEY, YOU AREN'T A COMMON MAN! QUIT TRYING TO ACT LIKE ONE!

When Obama farked up with his arugula comment, he didn't make the same mistake twice. Every time Romney opens his mouth, it's like he's trying to one-up himself. I fully expect a comment within the next week about how he really likes french fries because he steals a few from his maids whenever they have some. Maybe he could biatch about real estate taxes on second homes.

When asked on his thoughts about Samantha Perkins aged 37 of White Plains Indiana, who had never flown on a plane before, Romney replied "I know exactly how she feels. I just purchased a new Gulf Stream and I've yet to take it out for it's maiden flight. It's one of the many sacrifices I've had to make on this campaign to take back America"

Does Romney have any advisers at all? It's hard to believe there is no one telling him to stop saying stuff like this.

I still don't understand how anyone can consider that a fark up. You can buy arugula at any grocery store for close to the same price as other lettuce. And he was standing in a room of farmers who freaking RAISED arugula.

Yeah. For fark's sake, I went grocery shopping earlier and considered getting some arugula because it's not more expensive than any decent leafy green. I went with baby romaine because arugula's a bit too peppery for the COOL STORY BRO

Iceberg lettuce shouldn't farking count as a vegetable. It's crispy water. When you slather it with ranch dressing and bacon, you're not eating a salad, you're eating a negative salad. It also has no taste. Arugula, along with romaine, baby spinach, and other darker leafy greens, might not be as huge or crispy as iceberg lettuce, but they're better on every level without being much more expensive.

The iceberg/arugula thing probably is a very good metaphor for political discourse, but I'm not sure how.

Fresh vegetables and expensive and rare luxuries like refrigerators! REAL AMERICANS eat individually wrapped processed corn-products!

When asked about the victims of the Costa Concordia disaster, Romney replied "I understand their pain. My family lost two state rooms full of furniture and 3 cars when the Titanic went down. Luckily, my great grandfather, great grandmother, and my grandparents found their way to two lifeboats. It was a harrowing experience for them. We never got that damn necklace back."

Take-over a company that is struggling. Let's say it is worth $100M. Use the company as collateral for a $100M loan. Pay your firm $100M in fees. Sell off the company assets and turn it over to the bank. This is literally the shiat that Bain Capital has done.

Mitt Romney may be wrong on the vast majority of issues (does not want to eliminate taxes, opposes slavery), but the notion that he should feel pity or sympathize with those less wealthy than him (i.e. less successful) is ridiculous.

thismomentinblackhistory: I've never understood this "common man" bullshiat. I don't want a common man as President. What happened to running on his business record? Oh, yeah, it's like anything else: he wants it both ways.


To be fair to Romney, it completely mystifies me why it's suddenly a horrible thing for him to run on his business record. He's a wealthy, educated, politically-connected guy who's been in the trenches for years. He worked the free market like his biatch and showed what capitalism could really do. He SHOULD be the Republican's golden boy. Instead, he's being excoriated for it.

I know that the Teabaggers are partly the cause but the rest of the blame falls on Romney's advisers. McCain got dragged down because of that "common man" shiat instead of running on his record. You'd think the GOP would learn to stop pandering to the base.

Rich politicians seem to be the only rich people who are on pins and needles about explaining their wealth.

I don't recall billionaire Ross Perot having this trouble, but he came from the private sector.

And it would be so easy for Romney to get out of this bind by saying that at least he's not the kind of rich politician who pretends to be a friend of the downtrodden while perpetuating policies designed to keep people clamped on the government teat.

That he can't even figure out this tactic is a testimony to his campaign's ineptitude.

Pretentious douchnozzles often play a serious game of one-upping each other about their possessions or achievements, because their whole sense of self depends on their superiority.

The thing about the several recent Romney gaffs is that he seems to operate in perpetual one-upping mode even when there is not a particular target to one-up.

Valid but obnoxious on-upping might be against say person X has a JD from Penn State where Romney might say "I have a JD and MBA from Harvard".

I guess Romney is playing at one-upping everybody in the US and to really win in this game he has to become President.

Satanic_Hamster: Lsherm: No kidding.

ROMNEY, YOU AREN'T A COMMON MAN! QUIT TRYING TO ACT LIKE ONE!

When Obama farked up with his arugula comment, he didn't make the same mistake twice. Every time Romney opens his mouth, it's like he's trying to one-up himself. I fully expect a comment within the next week about how he really likes french fries because he steals a few from his maids whenever they have some. Maybe he could biatch about real estate taxes on second homes.

I still don't understand how anyone can consider that a fark up. You can buy arugula at any grocery store for close to the same price as other lettuce. And he was standing in a room of farmers who freaking RAISED arugula.


It's like the Grey Poupon thing. Obama orders Grey Poupon for his hamburger and the right-wing media goes off on him. "Ooooo, MUSTARD'S too good for him! Plus, it's FRENCH mustard! Elitist snob!" You've seen it for 4 years now. If they can beat Obama up for anything, they will. And they'll invent shiat if they can't find anything worthwhile. My favorite is lambasting him for supporting the Chicago Olympic bid. You saw how the Teabaggers cheered when a US city got dropped in the 2nd round of bidding. Just because Obama supported it. Incredible.

I'm surprised they didn't pounce on him for singing last week.

Their financiers are deliberately holding the economy back, as a result things will still look grim in 2016. They put forward a moderate candidate that isn't batshiat crazy, speaking in tongues because Jeebus, or a total retard. Everyone jumps desperately on the centrist who is financially conservative and socially liberal. Landslide victory in 2016.

Romney is there man to win. If Romney's campaign is throwing in the towel, it's either because his people have internally come to the conclusion that it's better to lose the primary than lose the general election (setting up a fall-guy like Santorum to end their career against Obama), or the order came from higher up the chain to abort mission for the same reason.

But I think it's far more likely that Romney simply doesn't know that regular people suffering under Republican austerity don't own their own NASCAR teams. He probably thinks the service staff on his private jets fly home on their own private jets. Doesn't everyone own a private jet?

Its clear that he doesn't have any advisers who are willing to speak to him frankly. After watching the way he reacts to questions he doesn't like in debates and interviews, it's easy to see why.

Keep in mind this is a guy who hasn't had a boss since the 1980s. And, for the last 20 years, he's been totally unemployed, except for a short stint as governor of a Massachusetts. Despite his youthful appearance, Romney is a fairly old guy, and I think years of not having a job have turned him into bitter old asshole who hasn't had to answer to anyone for too long.

Headso: The idea that social services that help people


An assumption on your part, and often incorrect and wildly so. My state (NY) spends more on social services than any other, mainly thanks to a colossal Medicaid program. I don't see much evidence that poorer New Yorkers are "helped" all that much, given what's being spent.

Take food stamps, for example. There is extensive research showing that people on food stamps consume more processed crap...not because they're lazy slobs, but because it's often either cheaper or more convenient, or both. Eventually they get fat. Eventually diabetes and heart disease develop.

A sane, compassionate and long-run-cheaper alternative would be to provide an equivalent amount of nutritious food instead of a benefits card.

A huge part of the reason why processed non-food is cheaper than real food is because we subsidize corn so much that it's not worth it for many farmers to grow stuff other than corn. All of that extra corn gets used in ludicrous ways, like high fructose corn syrup (which is not the same as cane sugar damnit) or as feed for animals. It is practically impossible to eat a meal in this country that does not have some fashion of corn in it. Those subsidies need to disappear. Sure, that would raise the cost of many food items, but some of the savings could go to SNAP or monetary donations to food banks that can buy food at ridiculously cheap prices.

Serious Black: skullkrusher: jayg22: But Obama hanging out with multi-millionaire basketball players is some how totally cool.

I think you're missing the point. It's not that he has these friends. It's that he says he has these friends in an attempt to appeal to working class NASCAR fans. It would be like BO trying to connect with urban youth by saying he was just drinking Cristal with Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and Kanye at Oprah's $10,000 a plate Let's Make Oprah Even More Rich-a-thon

Or he was just playing a pickup game of basketball with Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James.


If Mitt had said he didn't really follow the sport but was friends with some NASCAR drivers I don't think it would have been quite as much of a gaffe.

Gulper Eel: Headso: The idea that social services that help people

An assumption on your part, and often incorrect and wildly so. My state (NY) spends more on social services than any other, mainly thanks to a colossal Medicaid program. I don't see much evidence that poorer New Yorkers are "helped" all that much, given what's being spent.

Take food stamps, for example. There is extensive research showing that people on food stamps consume more processed crap...not because they're lazy slobs, but because it's often either cheaper or more convenient, or both. Eventually they get fat. Eventually diabetes and heart disease develop.

A sane, compassionate and long-run-cheaper alternative would be to provide an equivalent amount of nutritious food instead of a benefits card.

When Obama farked up with his arugula comment, he didn't make the same mistake twice. Every time Romney opens his mouth, it's like he's trying to one-up himself. I fully expect a comment within the next week about how he really likes french fries because he steals a few from his maids whenever they have some. Maybe he could biatch about real estate taxes on second homes.

I still don't understand how anyone can consider that a fark up. You can buy arugula at any grocery store for close to the same price as other lettuce. And he was standing in a room of farmers who freaking RAISED arugula.

Yeah. For fark's sake, I went grocery shopping earlier and considered getting some arugula because it's not more expensive than any decent leafy green. I went with baby romaine because arugula's a bit too peppery for the COOL STORY BRO

Iceberg lettuce shouldn't farking count as a vegetable. It's crispy water. When you slather it with ranch dressing and bacon, you're not eating a salad, you're eating a negative salad. It also has no taste. Arugula, along with romaine, baby spinach, and other darker leafy greens, might not be as huge or crispy as iceberg lettuce, but they're better on every level without being much more expensive.

The iceberg/arugula thing probably is a very good metaphor for political discourse, but I'm not sure how.

I think you just became the first salad snob in the history of fark!


I feel ya.

"[H]e ignited a media eruption by mentioning at least four cars he owns and saying his wife Ann drives "a couple of Cadillacs."

I wouldn't have thought this particular statement would get him in trouble. Cadillacs are of American origin and would seem to be a car that some of Romney's presumed base could at least aspire to own, even if it never happens.
Not like one of those durn-fancy high-end BMWs.
(Which Romney probably keeps hidden in the garage.)

Moreover, if you check the front yard of some Republicans' homes, you will see at least four cars. They'll be up on blocks, sure, and some might have weeds growing up through the trunk, but there'll be four of them.

Seriously. I think W would have been happier as a used car salesman in Midland rather than Poppy's political heir. He became the definition of "falling upward".

Bungles: Bloody William: Bungles: Rocket's one of the basic salad leaves in the UK and has been for a decade.

I wasn't aware it had this exotic allure in the US.

Rocket is arugula? Huh. I thought they were different. It does make sense that they're the same, since I don't see rocket in stores in the US. It's just called arugula.

Although it's aluminum, not aluminium, you unnecessary vowel-adding limey bastards.



It's called rocket, or something that sounds like rocket (like roquette or rucola), everywhere else in the world.

Maybe it only has an arty-farty reputation in the US because the US has given it an absurdly arty-farty name?


Arty-farty?? Arugula sounds like the name of a whore from the Planet of the Apes.

I know, after 8 years of Bush and his horrific mismanagement? Preach it, brother. No more farking MBA presidents again.

Especially those whose actual business experience tells us that they're completely incompetent at running a business.


Hey. The Texas Rangers never went bankrupt.

They did, however, institute a rather broad wiretapping policy at Arlington Stadium.

Late to the thread but every time I see the Romney laundry picture, I can't notice anything but the way he is obviously reading the instructions on the inside of the lid.

It's okay, Mitt! I didn't know how to run the machine my first time either!

moothemagiccow: Lsherm: When Obama farked up with his arugula comment

Dude he was in a place where they grow arugula. It's like going to Texas and mentioning bbq. Super high class.


It was the combination with Whole Foods that made him seem a little out of touch.

No matter, he didn't make the same mistake again.

Mike_LowELL: I like how people think our elected officials should be in-touch with the common man. I have never once in thirty years heard the Republican Party suggest that our President be someone I would want to drink a beer with. Mitt Romney may be wrong on the vast majority of issues (does not want to eliminate taxes, opposes slavery), but the notion that he should feel pity or sympathize with those less wealthy than him (i.e. less successful) is ridiculous.


...Whaaa?

Mike_LowELL is Fark's very own version of the Colbert Report. Favorite him with a purplish color or perhaps a nice periwinkle, and enjoy his truthy goodness.

I love Mitt Romney. Finally, I can say honkey and cracker and not feel like a traitor to my race.
He's the white man's White Man.

If you cut your grass and discover you own more car than you thought... you might vote Republican.

If you finally found a justification for spending your kids' college fund on NASCAR merchandise... you might vote Republican.

If you believe that the right to life begins at conception and ends at birth... you might vote Republican.

If you're proud of members of the military except when they're gay or female... you might vote Republican.

Ahoy, polloi.


Mitt Romney makes John Kerry look like Larry the Cable Guy

I dunno - Kerry does have that wicked New England lockjaw thing going.

Remember when the lockjaw accents were popular with the GOP?

Dusk-You-n-Me: The New York Times reports, via Steve Benen, that Romney was booed at the car race and made fun of the crowd's inexpensive rain gear. "[T]he crowd initially booed Mr. Romney, who occasionally struck a discordant note, as when he approached a group of fans wearing plastic ponchos. 'I like those fancy raincoats you bought,' he said. 'Really sprung for the big bucks.'"

He has people that keep him dry.

to paraphrase another Farker, he seems rather gobsmacked that clothes can be sanitized and re-worn.

spcMike: FlashHarry: thismomentinblackhistory: I've never understood this "common man" bullshiat.

blame republicans for that. remember, al gore and john kerrey were stiff and aloof. george w. bush was a president you could "have a beer with."

The irony being that W doesn't even drink.

HA Yes. I have been thinking of some of these lately, as well:

If you spend over $100,000 in tax payer money and all people care about is the dildo, you might vote Republican

If you cruise bathrooms for gay sex, you might vote Republican

If you hate gays because doth protest too much, you might vote Republican

so many more could be made...
