"I love the fact that as we walked in the parade today, I realized that a number of people were thinking about voting for someone else besides me. I know they were," said Romney

I love that fact, too. Romney.

You're at a lemonade stand. You drink a glass of lemonade.

theknuckler_33: Yea... I'm just not looking at this thinking it is some kind of big indicator of Mitt Romney, the man/machine. For me, this goes in the 'meh' column.


I don't think anyone else sees it as a big indicator, but the Romney/Robot idea is funny. It takes pretty close to zero effort to post here, the fact that people are doing it is not evidence that they feel strongly about the comment.

Lighten up, Francis.

Nadie_AZ: theknuckler_33: abb3w: ...can anyone come up with a more complete softball of a question for a presidential candidate?

And, as counter-challenge, can anyone come up with how Romney is likely to flub those in turn?

It seems someone in the crowd asked him about the lemonade. Frankly, even as anti-Romney as I am, I'm willing to chalk this up as a goofy joke uttered impromptu-style in a festive atmosphere.

I mean, did you really expect him to stop in the middle of a parade and say "It has just the right balance of tart and sweet and it at the perfect temperature of 38-40 degrees F."??

"God damn, that's good."

friday13: Oh, COME ON. I don't like him, but REALLY? You CAN'T SERIOUSLY TELL ME you've never done something like this when you're hot, thirsty and/or guzzling down something refreshing. I give Rmoney plenty of flak, but this is farking rediculous.


Of course people do shiat like this from time to time. But goddamn near every farking day no matter the topic? You think his campaign keeps him away from the press and the public just for shiats and giggles? No, it's because he either says something completely off message or simply comes off as an out of touch dullard.

If you're running for President, when you have to interact socially with us normals you simply must avoid sounding like someone who has suffered a massive stroke. Certainly not always, but certainly not at the incredible rate Romney does either. Especially when you're trying oh so hard to shake the 'out of touch' label.

At least he didn't complain about all of the new federal regulations governing the production of lemonade Obama has personally introduced, that are stifling this young job creators business, and that the lemonade stand owner will now be forced to buy health insurance coverage for his sister, who helps squeeze the lemons.

Mikey1969: When one supporter yelled, "Save our spirit," Romney responded with an emphatic "You bet!"

Whereas any robot with decent programming would have responded with an emphatic 'What the fark are you talking about?"


Nah. He had his advisers get their names and sent mormon missionaries to their homes later that evening.

I can come up with precious few that are even comparable, and I fear it may be beyond my abilities to come up with one that's appreciably more inane and inoffensive than "How is that lemonade?" Things like "Isn't that a beautiful baby?" and "Do you like apples?" are the only ones I can think of that really come close.

/ Rmoney would of course respond, "Babies. Boy, they're just like small humans, aren't they?"

""Get out and vote next year, this November, I mean!" said Romney, wiping beads of sweat off his brow. At one point, stopping to guzzle a glass of lemonade, Romney was asked how it tasted, to which he replied, "Lemon. Wet. Good.""

Heat exhaustion? How many states does he have left? 56?

Q: What's your favorite memory from attending state fairs?

A: I have some friends who run these fairs, and the behind the scenes tours are great. In fact, I remember buying one or two of those at Bain. The funnel cakes were great!


or

A: I use to leave my dog in my Dad's Roll Royce with the windows rolled up and pop in to the town's fair. I generally didn't stay very long but if it was a hot day and they had ice cream, I could stay there for hours telling the carnies that I could get them fired if I wanted to.
