The Romney Olympics have long included a mini-triathlon of biking, swimming and running that pits Mitt and his five sons and their wives against one another. But after Mitt once nearly finished last, behind a daughter-in-law who had given birth to her second child a couple of months earlier, the ultra-competitive and self-described unathletic patriarch expanded the games to give himself a better shot.

So the Romneys are the rich family from "Wedding Crashers"?

Romney; going to a private estate in a bastion of liberalism might hurt your streetcred when you later claim to be a regular joe blue collar conservative southerner. Well, hurt it more.

"At night, the adults gather for family meetings, with each evening focused on a frank and full discussion of a different son's career moves and parenting worries. In the Romney family, the trips to Wolfeboro are mandatory"


It's like he's constructed the ultimate family-gathering nightmare scenario. This is horror film stuff.

I've been saying this for years: Mitt cannot tolerate being challenged.

But that's OK. We should just be cool with a President who changes the rules when he doesn't get his way.

I like how Romney wants to exert Iron-fisted control over other people's life decisions. Very Conservative

If Mitt Romney had that many children to take care of it's almost be like helping out the needy when he gave them money. He'd never submit to that kind of thing. One family and he can still write it off on the taxes he doesn't pay because all his money is overseas anyway.

Vacation time with the Romneys
 
2012-07-02 10:21:54 AM  
I wonder what time Mitt scheduled fun for on the itinerary? I can almost imagine it being there.

8:00 - Rise and shine. Plan to be bright eyed.
9:00 - Fun. Plan to smile
10:30 - Game time. (I win)
10:35 - Your Life planning.
Etc...

We get it, he's mormon. At least he's not a secret muslim whose christian preacher hates america and whose wife was never proud of america. And lets not forget his autobiography was written by a terrorist.
 
2012-07-02 10:30:39 AM  
Romney is either refashioning himelf to appear to be more like his fathher(the King of the Rambler and other shiattiest cars ever) or he's unwell. Low stress tolerance. Let's see his medical records...he looks tired.

As a devout mormon he will take our beer and liquor and he will prevent anyone in the country from working on Sundays. This means no more football.

And no soda.

No coffee or tea, either.

No music, except the kind of music they'd play in a Mormon church (if any).

No television except for the shows Ned Flanders would let his kids watch.

I'm not sure what foods they're allowed to have, but arugula, mustard and bacon cheeseburgers with mustard are almost certainly verboten.


Oh, and they have to wear their Special Magical Bloomers That They Have To Wear All The Time Or Else God Will Be Angry At Them the whole time.

Even when I go visit Gram in NJ, she lets the coffee hit my brain in the morning before she starts deconstructing my life and detailing everything I've done wrong. That's just courtesy.

Actually, make it a double bacon cheeseburger with the works (including arugula and mustard), along with a side of ultra-sized fries and a 64 oz Diet Coke.

That's Mitt Romney, and his "child of privilege" mentality in a nutshell. Suck at something? Don't try to get better, just rig the game so the rules favor you from now on

It reminds me of the stories that came out of W and his mountain-biking excursions at the "ranch". On the one hand he'd ride with professional athletes and cyclists, but on the other he'd "jokingly" make it clear that they were to let him "win"
