Sorry Mitt, that is not what the Tea Party is all about.

Give or take Ron Paul
 
2012-04-17 09:16:57 AM  
i was thinking of asking you what the tea party is all about, but I think i'll just encourage you to vote for Ron Paul. He is truly the best candidate.

"No feature of the Obama presidency has been sadder than its constant efforts to divide us, to curry favor with some Americans by castigating others," Daniels said in January. "As in previous moments of national danger, we Americans are all in the same boat."

Where do the Swiss bank accounts and Cayman Island shell companies fit on America Boat?

RMoney vows to fight for the rich. Good for you, RMoney.

From the CNN poll cited in TFA:

Would you favor or oppose a proposal to change the federal income tax rates so that people who make more than one million dollars a year will pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes?

Should play well with the Tea Party.

Mitt is truly the quantum candidate, he exists in a superposition of all possible views and what you observe of him depends on the conditions of your observation.
 
2012-04-17 09:40:21 AM  
And by warming up they mean, "They will just stay home instead of actively running someone against him"
 
2012-04-17 09:42:28 AM  
Boy, oh boy, is it going to be fun watching Mittens pander to these Teabagger morons and the delusional Ron Paul supporters...
 
2012-04-17 09:44:24 AM  
Oh good. It's about time the rich got a break.

"I will not do as this president is doing, dividing us at every occasion, attacking one American after the other," Romney told a tea party crowd in Philadelphia. "Trying to one scapegoat, trying to find someone who by virtue of attacking them can divert from his failures economically."

"No feature of the Obama presidency has been sadder than its constant efforts to divide us, to curry favor with some Americans by castigating others," Daniels said in January.


I appreciate that they provide us with actual examples instead of just bloviating.

"If I'm so fortunate to become president I will not apologize for success here at home," Romney said to cheers, adding a domestic version to his classic "No Apology" line which he delivered right after: "And I will certainly not apologize for America's success abroad," he said.

These people are farking morons.
 
2012-04-17 09:46:19 AM  
Well, it's not like they were gonna vote for the black dude with the African name...

Yes, even in 2012.

And that's not how you format a table.

But yeah, the Tea Partiers are by and large idiots, and RMoneybot 3.0 still needs some programming tweaks. Let me get my surprized face.

But they DID give specific examples. You know, Obama hating the rich and insisting that they pay taxes. The nerve of him. Doesn't Obama know that the rich are taxed enough already?

Romney Wows Tea Party With Promise To End Obama's War On The Rich

And usher in the war on the poor and middle class.
 
2012-04-17 10:34:29 AM  
Romney may be too liberal, but at least he's white.
 
2012-04-17 10:34:32 AM  
I am still waiting for the interview with the Mississippi voter who is disturbed by the choice of voting for a negro muslim vs. a heretic who prays to a cult.
 
2012-04-17 10:34:46 AM  
Well this reeks of desperation.

Rich guy stands on stage and tells a bunch of teatards that he's not gonna make people like himself pay their fair share.

Room explodes into applause.

Sane people just shake their heads.

If these people aren't beaten back in 2012 American is so farked it's not even funny.
 
2012-04-17 10:36:22 AM  
The one bit of pandering Romney can relate to.
 
2012-04-17 10:36:39 AM  
They're a very principled people.
 
2012-04-17 10:37:25 AM  
It was only a matter of time that all his previous records were jammed down the Memory Hole and the Olympic-level cognitive dissonance took over.

Where once Mitt Romney was the liberalest liberal who ever powered his Prius with aborted babies and burning copies of the Constitution, now, thanks to the Power of Retard we will soon see poorly-executed photoshops of Romney being carried aloft by a smiling Washington and Lincoln on a sedan chair made of Crying Eagles as an F-150 monster truck jumps over the scene with Jesus and Reagan in the back high-fiving while forcing Hilary Clinton's face into a bucket marked "Arab Buttholes."

Meanwhile the guy down the street who has inadvertently aerated his lawn by changing yard signs from Ron Paul to Michelle Bachmann to Sarah Palin to Herman Cain back to Michelle Bachmann to Newt Gingrich to Rick Santorum will, at last, put up his Romney sign and tell everyone he's backed Mitt from day one.

WhyteRaven74: Car_Ramrod: These people are farking morons.

No, but I hadn't heard this "no apologies" thing in awhile and I was hoping even they realized how transparently, stupidly obtuse that line is.

This is going to be a long, dumb campaign.
 
2012-04-17 10:37:59 AM  
Romney will fight hard to ensure that only the rich have the right to bear and raise children. Only the rich shall be allowed to congregate and worship their deities. Only the rich shall be allowed petition the government for a redress of their grievances. Only the rich shall be allowed to own property and enter into legal contracts. Only the rich shall be given basic human rights.

The rest will be acknowledged as the pack animals that they were bred to be.

These days I'm frequently reminded of this quote:

Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.

So have you teabaggers officially given up on the "we're a diverse group with varying political views" facade? How about "We care about taxes and fiscal responsibility. It's the tie that binds this politically diverse group together." It's been fun watching you fool yourself into believing that the rest of us didn't know what a bunch of bullshiat you were feeding us.

That is one of the best sentences in the history of the English language.

I can't wait until the Farkers I have marked in troll purple start defending Romney after months of not wanting to touch him with a ten foot pole.

Hey now! I never said I could format anything. I can set a table, sit at a table, and clean a table. That was copy pasta.

And now I'm hungry.

How long has this war on the rich been going on? Obama must be really bad at waging it considering the condition of the rich.

Mitt Romney, centrist compromiser:

"I will not do as this president is doing, dividing us at every occasion, attacking one American after the other," Romney told a tea party crowd in Philadelphia. "Trying to one scapegoat, trying to find someone who by virtue of attacking them can divert from his failures economically. I will bring America together because I do believe that we are one nation under god."

Go fark yourself, Romney.

Male Sarah Palin? I guess I haven't been paying attention, but he just spouted phrases not a thought.

Well of course the Tea Party loves Romney. Romney isn't blah or a government nig.
 
2012-04-17 10:50:48 AM  
I will bring America together as one nation under god, I will absolutely not make attacks and find convenient scapegoats like the MUSLIM USURPER OBAMA, SOURCE OF ALL THAT IS WRONG IN AMERICA.

Doesn't matter. A True Tea Partier would rather lose his home, see his wife and daughters sold into a life of prostitution, and his sons sold into slavery than see Obama remain in the White House. For them, it's a moral issue in much the same way that rooting against your own high school is a moral issue,

I agree this was very funny, but my favorite was the last paragraph. The second one was great, too, I just liked the 'inadvertently aerated' bit.
