Thanks Giving must have been very awkward and the Rmoneys this year.

Well, yeah... can you imagine trying to eat while having to look at this for the entire meal?

Mitt's going to have some explaining to do at the club, when his friends find out he gave his cook Thanksgiving off. shiat like that gets around. Next year, everyone's cook will want the day off.

No they didn't. They are right by Marine Street in La Jolla. The closest Boston Market is up in Clairemont and they don't deliver. Marine Street has dozens of take out places near by and way better and closer than BM. For instance, PF is just up the block.

They're still pretending that they are just typical folks. Bunch of entitled phonies. Feh.

Who said anything about delivery? How farking lazy ARE you people that you think that's a valid argument?

One friend said they ordered their turkey dinner from Boston Market, the home-style restaurant chain, because there were too many kids running around the house to bother with cooking a feast.

My point is why would they need drive past some of the best take out restaurants in La Jolla, through the next town (Pacific Beach) with all its restaurants, and into Clairemont to go to get turkey at a Boston Market pick up window that is going to need to be reheated when it gets back to all the kids running around the house?

My question is why would the go to a villa instead of having it at their home?

I'm gonna say it again. This Boston Market stuff is BS. There is too much information Romney's Thanksgiving dinner. Either the writer made it up or Romney just told him Boston Market because he thinks that's what common folks do.

Fun fact. The guy who is the co-chief executive officer/owner of the Boston Market chain is Marc Leder. Yep, the same Marc Leder whose Boca Raton home was the site where Romney was recorded saying, among other things, 47% of Americans feel entitled to government. So it could be Romney was throwing a free plug to his donor. Leder gave at least $225,000 to Restore Our Future, a super PAC that backed Romney, according to OpenSecrets.org.

I doubt they have much experience eating in or from your typical chain restaurant..

Considering that all we have is the word of a friend and nothing else, you might have something here.

Over Thanksgiving, one of Romney's five sons, Josh, his wife and their four children packed into a single bedroom at the Spanish-style villa on Dunemere Drive here. One friend said they ordered their turkey dinner from Boston Market, the home-style restaurant chain, because there were too many kids running around the house to bother with cooking a feast. 

I heard another friend say that they saw Romney passed out at 31 Flavors last night, it must've been pretty serious.

Like lots of people would choose something they see on TV as opposed to some unknown "risky" (to them) option.

I used to work with a guy who, at age 40, was amazed I would choose some no-name taco stand for lunch, instead of McDonald's or Taco Bell. The idea just never occurred to him.

/ He really liked the taco stand.

Not that I don't think the Romneys are entitled, but I ordered a Boston Market turkey dinner too and I had to go pick it up as they do not deliver. So it's not like they're pretending or anything. I'm sure they took one of their choice of luxury cars from the car elevator in the house and picked it up at the shop.

/ I didn't order a meal from Boston market because I'm a failed presidential candidate though; I'm a tired pregnant woman who didn't want to waddle around the kitchen.

It would fit his personality perfectly, since Boston Market for Thanksgiving is what an alien robot would eat, thinking that's what normal human beings do... while pretty much everybody else makes it at home, even if it's just pouring the cranberry blob out of the can.

To be fair, chains (especially ones like Boston Market) are more likely to be open on Thanksgiving than the local hole-in-the-wall joints.

But clearly this is Mitt continuing his 2016 presidential campaign!!
He is getting down and dirty just like the common guy.

2012-12-02 02:19:24 PM
And chance that the poor workers who were forced to be there on Thanksgiving instead of with their families secretly agreed to give Romney's order the "special sauce"?

"Mmmmm......this gravy is so creamy."

FTFA: Still, as a Romney counselor in the Post story notes, the ex-candidate is not one to wallow in self-pity. Unlike post-2000 Al Gore, the counselor says, "You won't see 'heavyset, haggard Mitt."

Ever since I've moved out East I can understand. When you don't have much money then you can't really afford to have a bad meal out and with the locally owned places you are taking your chances since the visible ones (vs the ones only locals know about) can range in quality from 1-10 on any given night while franchises will give a solid 6.5 every time. In Cali I could take a chance just driving down any road because the people cared about what they served, especially in cheaper places.

I donno, it was the only decent image I could find via GIS for "romney grandkids". They are mormon though, so they take the whole "go forth and multiply" thing pretty seriously.
 
2012-12-02 02:32:42 PM
Romney tried and failed to buy the presidency. The only reason to waste any further thought on the man is remind everyone that a) the presidency is not for sale--at least, not in the way the Romney/Rove/Fox team seemed to think it was, and b) being a good CEO is not the same as being a good POTUS; in fact, they're kind of opposites. The best revenge at this point is to totally ignore the guy. There may be some pleasure in continuing to point out his glaring character faults but progressives need to let go. If you still need a dose of schadenfreude, get it from the knowledge that the repubs are giving him the same cold shoulder.

I still don't understand the excuse... there were too many kids running around to cook dinner. As if this wasn't a problem last year, or the year before, etc.

How about "Ann is still upset she's not first lady and just couldn't be bothered to do it, everyone showed up, and there was no dinner..."? I mean she has all the daughter-in-law robots to help - but then I suppose the ensuing conversations in the kitchen might be --- awkward.

Earlier (after reading the other thread) I was trying to think about what I would do in his shoes: a quarter billion $$$ and all the time in the world. I quickly realized that there wouldn't be enough time in the DAY to do all the things I wanted to - projects I'd want to start, things to dive into, etc. Research-grade robotic observatory? No problem! Sanctuary and care facility for cats? No Problem! Educational foundation for promoting kids towards careers in science or medical research? No problem! A next-generation integrated knowledge bank available to everyone (think Wikipedia "done right" with grants to people to do the content creation) - No problem!

But Mitt can only wander aimlessly TRYING to figure out what to do next. What. A. Pathetic. Putz.

/Yeah, those are all things I've fantasized about doing "if I ever had 'FU' money"...
//Yes, even the kitty one ...
///... and of course "making sure that every day breaks the previous record for "WORST day ever" for NOM, the AFA, etc." - but that one was a GIVEN...

I really have no problem with this.

We bought our thanksgiving mostly from reasors grocery.

All prepared and it was great.

We made a few sides but the bulk we purchased because we had a bunch kids and not enough time to do the rest.

Let them buy their turkey where they want as long as he isn't president he can eat a bag of dicks for all I care.
