I think we should all get together and offer a prize to anyone who can find an accusation Romney or the Right has made about Obama that Romney himself wouldn't also be guilty of.

Politicians try to relate to their audience.

This is now a scandal.

If you've ever needed to make a hard decision, like how to transport the family dog on vacation, while having to don magic underpants for clarity in the process, and still making a bad decision, you might be a Romney.

Yes, and Hillary Clinton did it in the primaries in 2008 and many people still insist on doing it, and for the most part, we down here in the deep South know patronizing behavior when we see it and simply shake our heads and say, "Bless his/her heart."

Bless your heart, submitter.

Whoa, hold on there. I like that idea. Although, the Presley estate is quite litigious.
 
2012-10-03 10:47:34 AM  
Wait a second...THAT is why Drudge claimed that the speech was a "bombshell"? Because the speaker tried to emulate the accent of his audience? That's the huge deal?

I don't get it. How can you get outraged about that?

I think you're missing the important point that President Obama is black and refuses to apologize for it.
 
2012-10-03 11:48:13 AM  
sure, but when romney does it, he just feels like he's one of us. somehow when i see obama trying to affect a southern accent, he just seems different, like he's somehow still not like me. i can't put my finger on why...
 
2012-10-03 11:51:31 AM  
This isn't fair. Obama is a human being. Romney is an android, and a prototype at that.

you'll really see the liberal bias in action when the first debate focuses almost exclusively on the topic of "what is love"
 
2012-10-03 12:16:17 PM  
Oh, it's the accent! That's why I should be outraged! I was wondering what part of that recently unearthed bombshell was supposed to rile me. Now I know!

*Grrrrrumble*, that 0bingo and his fake accent! This really steams me! I can't vote for that guy! Grrrraarrrrghh!!!

True, but Mitt going full Oompa Loompa orange in an attempt to appeal to Latinos crossed the line into patronizing.

What and Obama's hair turning white to lull the Caucasian demographic doesn't?
 
2012-10-03 12:36:14 PM  
Mitt's got grit.

Not the true kind, no.

Cheesey grits, to be precise.

More cheese than grits, in point of fact.

You think that accent was something?

You should hear his impersonation of "the poors" as he calls them after he loosens up after a hard day on the campaign trail with a decaffeinated cola beverage.

He is such a card.
 
2012-10-03 12:37:54 PM

We should call him Wagner.

2012-10-03 12:38:27 PM  
Is it as funny as Obama's homey, negro voice,...you know the one, when he's trying to be all "folksy"???

if so, I bet it's funny.

You don't get it because you aren't a gigantic racist. An attractive and successful president is one thing, but an attractive and successful president who speaks attractively and successfully is just too far.

So... He's awkward around black people, (who let the dogs out, hoo hoo hoo)
He's awkward around southern people (cheesy grits y'all)
He hugs his wife awkwardly
He performs campaign speeches awkwardly
He introduces his running mate awkwardly

IS THERE ANYTHING MITT CAN DO RIGHT?


Oh yeah- Acquire 51 percent of the shares of a company, use controlling interest to get loans and rack up debt for a corporation, sell the assets to holding companies he owns at rock-bottom prices, sell the assets yet again but at reasonable, non-crazy prices, leave the company in ruins, and sell his interest, making sure that nobody makes money except him. He's good at that.

2012-10-03 12:44:59 PM  
I'm pretty sure it has already been established that things Romney has done in the past year are off limits, while everything Obama has done over the past 40 years is fair game.

Oompa-Loompa doopidy doo
I've got a good suggestion for you
If you're tired of making shiat up
You can just put on brownish make-up

Say that you wish you were Latino
Though you are lying, I'm sure they won't know
It's not like there's anyone to check on your facts
And say that you are full... of... crap
(No one's got the time for that)

Oompa-Loomp doopidy dah
If you're not craven, you will go far
You will win elections too
Like Barack Obama doopidy doo!

That's the only thing he hasn't apologized for!

But seriously, does Mitt Romney even know what an apology is? I don't think he does.
 
2012-10-03 12:49:00 PM  
The thing is Obama presented himself as a different kind of politician. Change, remember? Yet he turned out to be a bamboozler and hoodwinker. God, liberals are so dumb it gives me a headache.

To be fair, a DRUDGE REPORT!!!! headline full of extraneous bolt, italics, and UNDERLINING heading an article about something TOTALLY INNOCUOUS and completely inoffensive!!!!1! as if THE PRESIDENT WERE RAPING PUPPIES LIVE ON CNN is NOT?*%& anything New

// !!!
//*@*$T!!!
// I HAD A VERY NICE CUP OF COFFEE WITH MY BAGEL THIS MORNING. DAMN YOU OBAMA.

Jim Lehrer: Now tell me, Mr. Romney, in single words, only the good things that come into your mind when you think about your mother?

Mitt Romney: My mother?

Jim Lehrer: Yes.

2012-10-03 12:52:20 PM  
It's sad watching Republicans try to find their own bombshell attack on President Obama. It's like watching them make a joke, or trot out one of their washed up "celebrity" supporters. "Look, it's the guy from Creed!"

You spent four years inventing an alternate reality version of Obama in the hopes that you could defeat him. That strategy has failed. The American people aren't quite as ignorant and gullible as you had hoped.

He is black.


Yes, and a member of an evil cult religion whose members are typically called by a two-syllable name beginning with the letter ‶M,′′ which was founded by a charismatic Prophet and which warred against the USA many years ago.

Oh, and his dad was born in a foreign country, not on U.S. soil.

You can′t say either of those things about Mitt Romney!

So going with the guy who we know will screw the middle class so the wealthy can benefit is the "smart" option?
 
2012-10-03 12:53:20 PM  
Romney is clueless. He can't stop being offensive because he has no idea how to relate to the average person. The "other world" that exists outside of his privileged and sheltered existence is utterly alien to him.
 
2012-10-03 12:55:58 PM  
When people act complain about this accent thing it makes me think that they've never moved more than 50 miles from where they grew up.

When I go back to Chicago, it takes me about a day of being around my family and friends to start sounding like Bill Swerski.

You're onto something there. Moderate racists can accept that a bleh man could be "as good" as them, but who the hell does he think he is becoming president!

Agneska: The thing is Obama presented himself as a different kind of politician. Change, remember? Yet he turned out to be a bamboozler and hoodwinker. God, liberals are so dumb it gives me a headache.


Fair warning: to remember Obama as the candidate of change is to reveal to the entire internet that you're the political equivalent of functionally illiterate, since it means you literally didn't hear a single damned word his campaign put out beyond the one campaign poster.

He ran very openly as a small-c conservative hawkish candidate stressing fiscal responsibility and efficient bureaucracy. Which, admittedly, was a change, but only from the last guy.

//No hate for Bush, as there was more incompetence than malice there, but his administration was de facto a radical, reactionary administration weak on defense with a tax-and-spend policy so inefficiently run that they didn't even get the "tax" part right and just whacked the debt off the field as hard as it could.

We don't have any data that would indicate that the middle class will be screwed by Romney's future actions. We do have data that indicates the man sitting currently at the oval office (and the team pulling the strings behind him)is not up to the job. Plain and simple.
