He sent them with plastic bottles of bubble solution? Well, now the campaign is ON!

He brings words, you bring bubbles.

That's the Mormon way.

Lawrence Welk used to blind his competition using this very same method.

I hope this leads to a flurry of people Googling "Mormon bubbling"

It's not even June and it's already getting weird. If only Hunter S. Thompson were still with us.
 
2012-05-31 01:14:11 PM
That's a huge PR fail.

Sets up a nice fat pitch down the middle for the Obama crew to say "It's appropriate they used bubbles. Just like Mitt's agenda bubbles are distractions packed full of nothing."

Somerville Mayor Joe Curtatone mocked the the Romney campaign's efforts. "Thank you for the bubbles," Curtatone said. "It's a hell of a lot better than the smoke Mitt Romney blew at us ten years ago and that he's blowing across America!"

I really like this guy.

is that like a fart joke or what

I would love it if someone took a bottle of the bubble solution and poured it straight into the horn end of one of the vuvuzelas.

Vuvuzelas are a blight upon humanity and the inventor should be publicly flogged. Mitt's shiatheads blowing vuvuzelas at an Obama event should be run over by fat kids on Mongoose dirt bikes.
 
2012-05-31 02:07:21 PM
wait...I'm really lost here. How in the blue hell is that supposed to be disruptive?
 
2012-05-31 02:14:01 PM

Blowing bubbles?

malvasiabianca.org

Blowing vuvezelas (also, according to TFA)?
s3.amazonaws.com


At a first pass, I'd be fine if soap bubbles became a standard way of protesting political bullcrap at speeches. (Might be some minor health issues? Probably only marginal compared to the health risks of people in big crowds in the first place.) Probably would make for good TV, even.

But the other seems too likely to be easy "heckler's veto" territory.

Bubbles? Seems kinda gay. Did they also make saggy penis gestures?

i love the "go back to chicago" sign. is that some sort of "thing" with republicans? does it mean "inner-city" politics "wink wink?"

When did Obama's staffers do that?

If your press conference is disrupted by someone blowing bubbles, maybe you need to get a farkin spine.
 
2012-05-31 03:29:45 PM
Oh Mittens! You so crazy!
 
2012-05-31 03:29:55 PM
Nothing more than a Liberal media site whining about a Republican.
 
2012-05-31 03:29:56 PM
The article provides no proof that these were Romney staffers. I think they were just sane voters.

No god damnit, it's battery.

Am I the only one who knows the difference?

If the press conference is disrupted by someone blowing a vuvuzela, you should violently remove that vuvuzela blower's spine.
 
2012-05-31 03:34:21 PM
Of course they used bubbles. Bubbles was the name of a monkey that Michael Jackson had. Know who else had a monkey? Ronald Reagan, who obviously would approve of Rmoney's antics. Duh!
 
2012-05-31 03:34:22 PM
We're forever blowing bubbles, pretty bubbles in the air.
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky.
Then like Romney's dreams, they fade and die.
VOTES ARE ALWAYS HIDING, we've looked everywhere.
We're forever blowing bubbles, pretty bubbles in the air.

SUPPLY SIDE! SUPPLY SIDE!

This is so crazy. I was JUST thinking some random jagoff throwing a pie is the exact same as one political campaign organizing and dispatching it's own staff to not just protest but completetly interrupt the event of another campaign. And here you were with that comment of yours. Freaky!

Really, at the end of the day is this any different than the Lincoln Douglas Debates? It's just two sides disagreeing.
 
2012-05-31 03:37:02 PM
Sending out your aides to blow bubbles at you're opponents rallies is just stupid and defines childish. Might be fun though.

Sending out your aides to blow vuvuzela's? Now that right there should disqualify you for elected office.

We came unblown this time, Obama. We'll blow you good one day though. One day.

Except the douchebag in the middle is dressed like he's late to go knocking on people's doors somewhere.
