Tired already? Campaigning is grueling business and this man has never done a real day's work in his life.

As a wise man once said "Presidenting is hard work"

Too tired to make a major campaign stop in an important battleground state? In August? Wait until you see what's in store for October, son.

Thank f*cking goodness.
 
2012-08-13 09:30:12 AM
Oh my. So how will he handle a 3am phone call?
 
2012-08-13 09:30:19 AM
Mittens would have the butler take the 3am calls.

Maybe he's going to spend a couple of hours looking for his tax returns so he can release them.

Romney originally was scheduled to visit the home of Orlando attorney Adams and her fiance, Jeff Lawson.

The house had appeared ready for the visit on Sunday afternoon, with a Romney campaign sign in the window and small American flags planted along the driveway.

"It's a thrill," Lawson had said earlier Sunday. "It's not every day you have someone who might be the next president coming to your house."


How interesting. Is one of the campaign staffers a political up-and-comer? Why do they leave out all the interesting details?
 
2012-08-13 09:31:04 AM
Romney's hands are probably so smooth...
 
2012-08-13 09:31:28 AM
Too exhausted to make a campaign stop... Confusing Sikh and Sheik because he had a long day....

Does he understand that The Presidency is actual work?

/When the phone rings at 3 a.m., he'll sleep through it.

Do you really want to cancel a campaign stop in one of the biggest cities in one of the biggest/most important states?

Can you do that with G20 conferences and stuff? Nah, I'm pretty beat. Maybe next year.

You know who else visited the Magic Kingdom?

"In advance of President Barack Obama's visit to Walt Disney World to announce new tourism initiatives, Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney ridiculed the trip as another stop in '"fantasyland" for the president."

"U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Winter Park, who joined Romney on the press conference call Thursday morning, said he welcomed the president's visit and the expected tourism programs but added, "he's a day late and a few projects short." And U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, playing off the Main Street U.S.A location of Obama's speech, accused the president of closing down main streets everywhere."

...so he picks a VP that wants to get rid of Medicare ...and then skips a Florida campaign trail stop...

i'm starting to believe the theory that he's milking Sheldon Adelson and all the other billionaires for all he can before he vanishes into the sunset.

If he blowing off Texas or something sure, fine, take care of yourself. But Florida is the swingiest of swing states. Maybe this is the Hollywood "tired" where they actually mean he is coming down from a big acid trip.

Actually, I thought he looked downright haggard in the footage from London...like Nixon TV debate haggard.

Maybe he really DOES believe he is destined to win, that the presidency rightfully belongs to him but a reason why is never given.
 
2012-08-13 09:40:15 AM
He's trolling and can't believe that he is still polling about even with Obama.

How about I pick a guy who proposed destroying medicare? Well shiat, still even?

I'll skip campaigning in the state? God damn, WTF does a guy have to do alienate these idiots?

Maybe he's given up on Florida. The Ryan pick certainly suggests that.

If he is giving up on Florida, then he better have some super secret strategy for winning Pennsylvania, New York, and every other swing state available.

He's probably still jetlagged from his successful overseas trip.

/Mitt...do we need to have a crash course in the electoral college? You know Florida factors into that. Just sayin.
//At this rate, he's totes going to throw something in his Tampa speech about closing bingo parlors, since those seniors are big fans of that. Classify Boost as a prescription-only drink while you're at it.

When my parents asked who Paul Ryan was, I pointed out his major thing was to gut Medicare, something they used. They didn't seem very fazed by that.

All they care is if he is pro-life. That's all they ever care about. Note, the person never has PROVE they are prolife, just have to CLAIM they are to get my parent's vote.

On the plus side, they think their birther friends are idiots.

It's not every day you have someone who might be the next president coming to your house.

With the minimum effort required by law. I don't think he is legally required to answer it. His people can check the voice mail in the morning.

Romney CANNOT win without Florida - even if he somehow pulls off wins in Ohio, Wisconsin, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa and Virginia (which is highly unlikely), Obama still gets 270 with Florida.

Or if, by some freak chance, he should actually win.

Being President is hard work 24/7. Even when you're "on vacation" you're not really on vacation.

To use anything more than the minimum effort would disqualify him to be President.

2012-08-13 09:57:35 AM
Just saw his campaign speech from St. Augustine on the local network. The "You didn't build that" line is never going to end is probably the biggest takeaway from it. Also, the outright lie of work for welfare is one that he'll stand by to the end. It really kills me that someone that runs on falsehoods has the gall to complain about attacks on his record and dealings.

I would just warn those that are certain Ryan will lose Florida for Romney to never underestimate the level of derp in Florida. Having a Florida tag is a product of these same people.

They don't even have to lie about it, the Ryan plan kills medicare for people older than the geezers in FL, they still get to use it the same as it ever was and leave it an empty shell for the younger generations.
 
2012-08-13 10:05:15 AM
He just needs more time to retcon the whole Medicare thing. You see it was really a Democrat plan, and Ryan was trying to be bipartisan with his plan. But he was decieved by the Democrats when not a single one voted for his plan, despite the cuts to Medicare he included just to get them on board
 
2012-08-13 10:08:47 AM
So you are saying "He looks tired?"
 
2012-08-13 10:10:38 AM
Looks like Romney's advisors aren't complete idiots.

Romney's Inner Circle Opposed Ryan as Veep Candidate

Initially when the subject of the running mate came up, much of Romney's inner circle was opposed to the choice of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) because they feared the effects his budget would have on seniors, especially in Florida. His campaign staff wanted Tim Pawlenty since he wouldn't stir up much controversy and wouldn't hurt in any states. However, Romney overruled his staff, in part because he likes Ryan and gets along with him well. But he was surely aware of a large number of national polls and swing state polls in the past weeks showing him behind and not gaining. He also desperately wanted to change the national conversation from his tax returns to something else and a bold pick for running mate might be his only chance. Whether this was a good idea will start to become apparent in the next two weeks as pollsters begin asking about Ryan.


I've heard of a VP pick being made to secure a state; I've never heard of one losing a state.

Rubio could have made a difference...but there's no way the GOP would want a non-xenophobe VP candidate. THAT would have been a bold choice.

Remember Georgetown? The whole Sandra Fluke controversy? Too Catholic to allow birth control in their student insurance?

Georgetown Faculty Latest to Chide Ryan

Representative Paul D. Ryan, the Republican chairman of the House Budget Committee, has been excoriated by some Roman Catholic leaders ever since he claimed this month that his budget plan, which slashes antipoverty programs, was inspired by the moral teachings of his Catholic faith.
...
The letter says, "We would be remiss in our duty to you and our students if we did not challenge your continuing misuse of Catholic teaching to defend a budget plan that decimates food programs for struggling families, radically weakens protections for the elderly and sick, and gives more tax breaks to the wealthiest few."

"Your budget appears to reflect the values of your favorite philosopher, Ayn Rand, rather than the Gospel of Jesus Christ," says the letter, which the faculty members sent to Mr. Ryan along with a copy of the Vatican's Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church - "to help deepen your understanding of Catholic social teaching."

It seems to be the defining trait of the current gop base:

Self-destruction.

Supporting a group that blatantly and badly punishes you for said support.
 
2012-08-13 10:18:18 AM
Holy crap... he really DOES look tired.

Seriously, if he's already pleading exhaustion on the campaign trail, how is he going to handle the Oval Office?

/hope we don't find out
