He and Ann don't have haptic and topological sensors. The kids have that upgrade.

James!: I thought it was weird how the convention video highlighted what a cheapskate he is.


They were going for frugal. But Ann was just on some late night show and was asked point blank "frugal or cheap?" and she said "cheap." Funny, perhaps, but it really steps on the message.

Instead of buying a proper lightbulb for his stove he used a normal bulb and tin foil.  That's how Mitt Romney solves problems.

Mock if you will. But we could use someone with creative problem skills that could potentially burn the country to the ground.

For first generation millionaires.

While Romney wasn't *technically* a trust fund baby, he was born on third, so I don't know how that factors into the trend.

the cadence in which this guy talks is making me laugh.

and there is no way in hell a cold shower isn't that bad, cold showers suck hard, although I live in the northeast and I have a well so my exerpience with cold showers is them at a tempture of about 33 degrees...

Because the rest of us are used to not having any money. I say the same thing, if I had money I'd pay off debts, secure a house and retirement, and give a farkton away to charities, especially local animal shelters and Habitat for Humanity.

Hell yeah. I also don't get these "I'm not going to give my kids sh*t" people either. I understand about instilling a work ethic and not spoiling your kids, but what's the point of money if you don't spread it around to your loved ones? I dunno, maybe it's my cultural background, but where I'm from you don't make your family suffer.

Subby is a douche. Romney said he sometimes forgets to turn the hot water heater back on when coming back from a trip.

How else do you keep your sinful family (who happen to be human and despicable) from thinking about dirty, dirty sex?

As a kid my hubby went for one year to a Swiss private boarding school that was super expensive and yet they made them take cold showers. I would have lasted precisely two minutes and marched my dripping wet, shivering ass out of there.

Maybe what Ann means by "leave the house" is moving to a different house for awhile? Like, "We're going to the Utah house for 3 months, better turn off the hot water in New Hampshire." That would at least make some sense. That would almost be reasonable, if completely unnecessary for a person with Romney's money.

ditto. i'm pretty frugal in a lot of ways- turn off all the lights religiously, use the high efficiency everything, high mileage car... but when i get in the shower, i'm going to spend 25 minutes in there with the water on hot. it was my ONE thing when last looking for apartments- good water pressure and lots of hot water.
