Mercutio74: From Ann Romney's preposterous mouth:

"It's time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt's qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country."

And what qualifications and experience are we talking about? Mitt's certainly not running on his gubernatorial record. If he talks about Bain he'll have to release his tax returns. So, what have you got for us "lucky" people, Ann?


We should feel honored that someone of his stature and breeding should ever deign to think about leading people like us, uncouth wastrels that we are. The fact that we don't just give him the position he so richly deserves is the height of ungrateful uppishness.

Mr_Fabulous: I think everyone has focused on the wrong quote.

"It's time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt's qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country."

There is so much inherent wrongness imbedded in that statement, I don't even know where to begin. Apparently, she's saying...

A) Republicans don't realize the significance of the presidential election
B) Republicans should feel grateful that Money BooBoo* is running at all...
C) ... because his qualifications are so damn impressive, and
D) She believes that, if elected, her husband will be "running the country"

Entitled? That word doesn't even scratch the farking surface.

*Feel free to steal this, it isn't mine


(B) is what stood out for me.

Are they seriously that arrogant??? (rhetorical question)

Good lord, go cry somewhere else, lady. If the campaign is this much of an affront to your sensibilities, you wouldn't last a week if you actually got the gig.

Holy crap, the Fonz would make a great Mitt Romney if they ever make a movie.


i had not even thought about that, i was just plopping some arrested down.
that would be motherfarking epic.

any other actor suggestions for the hilarious film about this for senor mitt or his wife people?
 
2012-09-21 10:08:10 AM  
So, what is she saying? That Republicans can't point out a clusterfark when they see one?

Hell, calling Mitt's campaign a "rolling disaster" is the most sensible thing any Republican has said in a good 12 years.
 
2012-09-21 10:08:15 AM  
She's right, it's extremely hard to run for president. Was she not aware of this?

it's hard for someone like McCain, or Clinton and it's damn sure hard for someone like Mitt. I wouldn't want to be standing in front of the entire country trying to sell Mitt. In fact I wouldn't do it, not for anything. Her and Mitt seem to think this was something they wanted to do, well here you are.

What? stop being mean? uh.....

Running for president doesn't work that way, they'll stop when it's over. Actually they'll tear team Mitt apart for the fail, then they'll stop. Actually they'll drag his carcass out every election for the next decade as an example of what not to do....then they'll stop. maybe

GAT_00: If she can't handle a campaign, she's going to have a nervous breakdown when Mitt's President.


I wonder, has Ann asked people to stop saying mean things to the current President also, as a call of greater civility, or is this purely that she thinks her Mittens is too precious and special a snowflake to handle criticism from his own side?

If she had made it a general call to play nice, that would have been something but from what all I have seen it's entirely a case of LEAVE MITTENS ALONE!!!!!

LarryDan43: I think he does everything that is suggested in the morning campaign meetings. He just forgets what was voted down as ridiculous and what was agreed on as the message of the day.


Yep.

Another insight from Peggy Noonan -- Romney needs a new "CEO":

Mr. [James] Baker's central insight: The candidate can't run the show. He can't be the CEO of the campaign and be the candidate. The candidate is out there every day standing for things, fighting for a hearing, trying to get the American people to listen, agree and follow. That's where his energies go. On top of that, if he's serious, he has to put in place a guiding philosophy that somehow everyone on the plane picks up and internalizes. The candidate cannot oversee strategy, statements, speechwriting, ads. He shouldn't be debating what statistic to put on slide four of the Powerpoint presentation. He has to learn to trust others-many others.

xria: Presumably if somehow Mitt actually became President, and starts the war with Iran the GOP want so much, soon after she will whine about the Iranians shooting back, killing some Americans and making her husband look bad.


Mitt wants a war with Iran because he thinks he will get a trip to Paris out of this one as well.

Maybe the GOP is just afraid of a strong, conservative white male? Didja ever think of that??

Well, at least Mitt doesn't disdain the poor.

Can't understand why the campaign pulled that interview.
 
2012-09-21 10:18:47 AM  
I think it is damn noble of the Romneys to campaign so hard and so effectively for the President. It really shows how much they believe in the path that the nation is on now...

Judging her response id say there are a lot of psychological reasons the Romneys seem out of touch but the most startling is how she equates the whole thing with a game. These people are the definition of entitled.

Millions of years from now, when the human race is extinct, alien archaeologists will comb through the ruins of Earth and marvel at the horrendous disaster that was the Romney 2012 campaign. The word "romney" will be adopted in their language to refer to a person as a farkwit who squanders every advantage he has by his sheer dickishness. Millions of years later, that alien civilization too will become extinct, and then they'll stop. Maybe.

Because that's exactly the line we want either of them to utter when the shiat hits the fan.

To Putin / China / etc. during trade negotiations: "Stop it, this is hard."

To Iran / Israel / Nonsense in the Middle East: "Stop it, this is hard."

Not that it hasn't already, but the curtain's been pulled back. I guess having everything handed to you (thanks to Dad) really doesn't make things easier.

But, it's not hard to screw 47% of Americans, to hire a sociopath for VP, etc. etc. etc.

It's like looking at a parasite that's getting annoyed as it desperately tries to get a hold of your skin and precious, precious blood, if only you wouldn't keep flicking it away.....
