He's trying to get the Ooopah-Loompah vote. And John Boehner's vote, too.

Well, he did theorize that he'd lock up the Latino vote if he were . . . More Latino.

This is why the Romneybot joke is so successful. He doesn't get it.

Come on people, does anyone think John Boehner panders to Hispanics by constantly slathering himself with spray tan? Romney's campaigning.

Come the fark on. Do you think he went back and desperately washed it off so he didn't look brown to the voters after that speech? He's far from the first to lather up in spray tan.

I just find it interesting that he waited til September to get a tan. It's not like he's been tan all summer. Why now?

Doesn't matter what color the Romnoid's skin is, he is the whitest man I have ever heard of.

If there was only some footage of him trying to dance (not old people dancing)... he doesn't seem like the clubbing type tho.

Suddenly? The dude has a history of telling whatever group he's talking to whatever they want to hear even if it's the exact opposite of what he said a month or a year or even a week before

/pandering has been his entire campaign

Maybe because IT ISN'T SUMMER ANYMORE YOU TWIT. Who the fark uses spray tan in the summer? You don't have time to tan in a campaign. Have you ever before denounced someone using spray tan as pandering? Of course not, because it's farking retarded.
 
2012-09-20 08:53:55 AM  
Y'know when a farking GOSSIP site is calling out Romney for shooting himself in the foot repeatedly, it's not really a good sign for the campaign.

You cannot possibly prove that using spray tan once is an obvious bias. It's dishonest at best, and confirming GOP cries of Democrats calling racism at everything. If you have multiple examples of Romney doing this, THEN you have a pattern. This is a single event that you cannot possibly draw meaningful conclusions from. What's more, you're smarter than that, so don't stoop to the level of a gossip site, or worse, cameron's level.

I assume Boehner does it to hide all the broken red capillaries.

He'd just hugged John Boehner before the event.

It's not even guaranteed Rubio could lock up the Latino vote.

On another thread I cracked a joke that Mitt should have completed the look by wearing a sombrero along with his spraytan so I'm getting a real kick outta that pic! ^__^ 

/This is almost as much fun as the time Mitt told that Cuban reporter that he really liked Papaya when asked about his favorite fruit.
//'Papaya' is Cuban slang for a ladypeach.

This is just a display of Romney's versatility; his blackness with the "Who let the dogs out?" his hispanicness with the brown-face, and his whiteness with just about everything else.

So then why wasn't he tan a week ago? He wasn't campaigning then?


His staff realized he was looking progressively less lively as he continued to check himself out of the campaign, and figured that if they were gonna make any money at all on this thing they were gonna need to gussy it up a bit.

"Damn son. You pale. Start using this." Doesn't seem like racial pandering to me.

if he did it specifically to try to appeal to darker-skinned voters, then it is a legitimate story.

personally, i think it's just bad makeup.

If someone could somehow prove that, it might approach the level of terrible that literally every other interaction he was with another human reaches. Until then, it's utterly pointless.
