FTFA: That Romney would go on "Meet the Press" and say that last year's bipartisan spending deal was a "mistake"- never mind that Romney had applauded Boehner for negotiating the deal at the time - made clear that the GOP nominee does not wish to run on the record of congressional Republicans.

That House Republicans would not so much as breathe Romney's name makes clear the sentiment is mutual.


Wow. That's some spectacular [FAIL] right there, R'money. Throw the House GOPers under the bus.

NEWS FLASH... G0P congress doesn't like their standard bearer calling them out on anything.

/rats on a sinking ship and all that too.

that's because its Mittens Rmoney, dummy. Mitt Romney was just an alias to get nominated with.

Well... why would they want to acknowledge each other? Neither has anything the other would want to associate themselves with.

The Congressional Teabagger/GOPers want nothing to do with Romney-Care, with his time at Bain, with anything he has said on the Foreign Policy front, etc.

Romney wants nothing to do with the blitheringly stupid range of would-be bills the House has cranked out in the past year and a half, with the Debt Ceiling Deal, with the lack of any kind of delivery from the legislature of any substance.

House Speaker John Boehner, who negotiated the deal, looked unwell.

Par for the course, really. He just in general looks like someone who is constantly sickly. Which makes him a wonderful representative for the Republican part.

Not that I feel good defending the Republicans in Congress or anything, but is Mitt Romney a member of Congress? Or an elected member of any government body, for that matter?

As well, I see it as a good thing that Congress (who are already elected and have work to do) aren't wasting their time helping out a presidental campaign.
 
Romney has nothing to do with Congress at this point.

What if they threw an election and nobody came?
 
2012-09-12 01:46:38 PM

So the GOP has effectively Bushed Romney even before the election.

He's a chain-smoker and a wine lush. Couple that with the inescapable, soul-gnawing realization that he'll be remembered as the worst Speaker of the House in living memory. Not a recipe for wellness.

They are trying to throw each other under the bus.

The GOP congressmen are distancing themselves from RMoney's remarks about the embassy attack in Libya.

Romneybot is distancing himself from the GOP congressmen's obstructionist record.

Basically, both see the other as an anchor that will make them fail in the elections, and you can watch the party tear itself apart as you see that a combination of empty suits, flag waiving and concentrated derp does not make a viable major political party.

And seeing as Mitt ISN'T an elected official right now, nor a part of any the business on the docket, he really shouldn't be mentioned.

I don't like the guy much, but this isn't a slight. Any more than Obama didn't slight God yesterday.

There are things to be outraged about. This ain't one of them...

When Obama was nominated, Reid and Pelosi treated him as the leader of the Democratic party. Even before he was elected, he was leading the Democrats in dealing with the economic meltdown issue. Perhaps Obama failed in leading both parties but Romney can't even lead one.

I just love it when reporters spend their time counting the number of words.

Copy/paste transcript in to Word, hit "Word Count". Takes less than a minute.
