Watch the raw video of him and Ryan order food at Wendy's on election day. It is very awkward and uncomfortable, especially when he orders a "Quarter Pounder".

sprawl15: "Come on up here, Craig. Come say hi," Romney told his son. "Tell them something about your family, or about your dad, that they don't know."

Craig Romney told an odd story about a family triathlon. His father's opponent was a daughter-in-law who had just given birth to her second child.

"It was kind of in the home stretch in the run there, and she had a slight lead on him," Craig Romney recalled. "And he said that in that moment, he decided that he was going to win that race or he was going to die trying."

Child of a wealthy man racing someone that just had life taken out of her, in a race where someone will die trying?

Reminds me of the end of Prometheus.

Insatiable Jesus: LMFAO, they based their intelligence gathering on 34,000 "Romney Supporters"? Relied on a bunch of right wing blogtards to provide accurate information?


"Well, in the past hour I've counted 89 black voters and 126 white voters, so...I think we're doing pretty good here!"

eraser8: Antimatter: When I dared question his rant, I was called every name in the book, and some of his buddies chipped in. i like how Bayonets are standard issue in their world, and subs are not a type of boat.

You should have asked him why the world's premier submarine manufacturing firm is...

General Dynamics Electric Boat 

It doesn't build surface ships. All GDEB does is build submarines.


Or ask him what kind of boats Germany used in WW2.

culebra: The Mystery of Why Republicans Were So Sure They'd Win


FTA: "For the project, Romney aides gathered about 34,000 volunteers spread across the swing states to send in information about what was happening at the polls. "The project operates via a web-based app volunteers use to relay the most up-to-date poll information to a 'national dashboard' at the Boston headquarters," said a campaign email on election eve. "From there, data will be interpreted and utilized to plan voter turnout tactics on Election Day."

WienerButt: My friend of over ten years has been ignoring me since the election. He found out I didn't vote for Romney and went apeshiat. He was throwing the N word around, furious and offensive. I had never heard this from him. He had a meltdown and has been ignoring my calls and texts. We usually talk everyday and talk sports and career but so far nothing.

WTF


I had a friend in the army who did the same thing. When I dared question his rant, I was called every name in the book, and some of his buddies chipped in. i like how Bayonets are standard issue in their world, and subs are not a type of boat. Those two things mattered more then any policy or action the president took, and any positive action of Obama's, in their world, was someone else at work.

I eventually just blocked his feed, as they got more and more unhinged about it.

Everyone jokes about the guy making Gore look like the life of the party but Romney truly creeped me out with his facade of a personality. I got an Uncanny Valley vibe from him like the creepy kids in Polar Express, Romney just felt subtly off and non-human. It feels like there was nothing behind his eyes, a soulless political chameleon blending into whatever stage he was currently standing on.

Hey y'all remember when that guy Romney (i think it was) showed up in "brown face" to talk to the Latinos?
Wasn't he the same one that told a room full of wealthy black folks that he wasn't givinem no more foodstamps? or something like that. I think he's the same one that told all the victems of frankenstorm that he was against FEMA and oh here have a can of soup. I bet at least 47 percent of y'all will remember that nice video he put out....I wonder what ever happened to that nice fellow.
