(Buzzfeed)   Not only did Mitt Romney bus in ringers for his Univision Q&A, he also threw a "tantrum" when he didn't like his introduction, forcing the producers to re-shoot it.   (buzzfeed.com) divider line 219

Mitt Romney is an entitled asshole.

And this is why online journalism isn't as high quality as print journalism; the lack of copy-editors.

But after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus, the Romney camp realized there weren't enough sympathetic students to fill the stands on their night - so they told the network and university that if they weren't given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to "reschedule."

I cannot wait until this asshole loses, and loses badly. So badly that he never considers running for office again. I wanted McCain to lose. I want Romney to be humiliated.

I was in MA a lot during his term. I don't recall him being especially awful, but being governor in most states, you attend ribbon-cuttings and crunch numbers; you usually don't have to negotiate directly with political opposition that is loud and public, and even on the rare cases you do, the results of a misunderstanding are not often catastrophic.

Romney probably should have given a bit more consideration to the possibility of if he won the presidency, how would he deal - simultaneously - with "friendly" nations who are trying to slip in a shiv, "hostile" nations using back-channels to offer or request assistance, a legislature that has 535 competing interests, a judiciary which is actually independent and can slice your man-parts off, and 300 million citizens, a significant majority of which consider you to be a tyrant and/or the earthly spokesman for demons. Oh, and a global economy which has changed a lot more than most of the voting public wants to realize... basically, it ain't a really good position for people who take things personally.

If he loses I think he will be, by default. The GOP has portrayed Obama as the most socialist, America-hating president in history. Losing to THAT would certainly be humiliating.

Ramos then invited the audience to welcome Romney to the stage - but the candidate didn't materialize.

"It was a very awkward moment, believe me," Salinas said.

Apparently, Romney took issue with the anchors beginning the broadcast that way, said Salinas, and he refused to go on stage until they re-taped the introduction. (One Republican present at the taping said Romney "threw a tantrum.")


Are recording devices, even just phones, allowed in this place? If so, I'd expect to see the video of him not coming out to surface very soon. I doubt anyone was backstage recording the "tantrum," but that would be amazing if someone caught what happened on film.

He's not blah. Seriously, that's about the only remaining "positive" for the guy. And that only goes so far, and only works on a certain percentage of voters.

MithrandirBooga: This guy is a grade A sociopath. I seriously don't understand how people can vote for him.


We were just talking about this earlier tonight. A person has to really pretend to like and believe Romney's lies in order to vote for him, and I think it says much more about the person casting that vote than it does the candidate himself.

In other words, you have to have absolutely no moral compass to vote Romney. Around here, we tend to call those people "pieces of shiat."

This is soooo not true of California. Governor is responsible for strong-arming the congress critters into balancing the budget. .

"Right now, we have 68,000 combat troops in Afghanistan. ... Right now, as we speak, it's well into the middle of the night, heading toward morning. There is some master sergeant sitting in a FOB that I've visited - a forward operating base - with six or seven guys and maybe a woman. Up there, defending a position being shelled all night. Who - because he or she is in a combat zone, risking their lives and too many having given their lives - he is not paying any tax on his salary."

"Does he view himself as a victim?" Vice President Biden asked.

If Mittens is actually throwing tantrums now, I'm starting to think it's an actual possibility that he'll have a meltdown of some kind at a debate on live national television. I know a lot of Farkers are joking that he might drop an n-bomb. He won't do anything that bad, but I'm starting to think he'll lose composure in some noticeable way.

Simple. It's the same reason people watch Fox News. Romney and Fox News both tell their audiences what they want to hear, even when both manage to contradict themselves as little as a few minutes later.

It's not that any of them are gifted salesmen. It's just that their clientele aren't very bright.
