Guntram Shatterhand: I know why:Thanksgiving, 2012. The family comes over to Mitt's house and encounter only the chauffeur, who doesn't know where Mitt and Ann are. The reality is that Mitt has been locked in this study for days, nursing the same glass of scotch, looking out the window. Occasionally tears roll down his face, but that's only when his imaginary world of not being president comes to the forefront.Ann is in one of the guest bedrooms, popping pills like they're Mentos. The weird smell is from the walk-in closet which has been used as the bathroom since November 10th. The real bathroom is right next to it, but Ann is too strung out to realize or care.The family downstairs figures this out when they hear Mitt screaming for his Secretary of Defense (before weeping) and Ann talking about her failed life and dreams. Then one of their sons (Zip, Bang, or Whizzo) tells the kids to go outside to play, hurriedly runs to Boston Market, and salvages something out of the holiday. The family leaves when they realize Mitt and Ann aren't coming down for quite a while yet.
NewportBarGuy: Never steal another man's dreams!
Too_many_Brians: 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./miss west coast food
canwolfshadow: Did he spend so much trying to buy the Presidency that he cant afford a decent resteraunt?
MithrandirBooga: canwolfshadow: Did he spend so much trying to buy the Presidency that he cant afford a decent resteraunt?I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the Romney's fired all of their hired help when they found out that they had the nerve to go out and vote.It would just be assumed that the servants voted for RomneyObama, because that's what the poors do.And we all know that Romney likes firing people who provide services for him.
ringo2: Folks, Ann Romney has multiple sclerosis. Probably the real reason for the car elevator (they're thinking ahead, to when she won't be able to handle stairs). The condition is exacerbated by stress. I guarantee she's stressed.I completely understand why they decided to get takeout for Thanksgiving.I dislike the man on many levels (not the least of which is that he chose to run at all, given her condition). But cut him some slack here.
Delay: Lsherm: 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?

clowncar on fire: An entire thread dedicated to Romney's dinner with his family. Raw butts and enquiring minds just have to know.
valkore: 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."[l.yimg.com image 310x466]Got the haggard down, working on the heavyset with help from Boston Market.
Kibbler: I don't want to say I cooked a big bird, but for next year, I'm having a turkey elevator put in.
propasaurus: Hell, even Diddy pretended to cook.[iamboigenius.com image 580x580]
Pauly Math: Mitt Romney is farking weird.
quatchi: Looks like it was just Slabjaw and brood. WTF were they all packed into one bedroom? Were there no other bedrooms? Was the rest of the place being fumigated? Smells like BS.
Smackledorfer: quatchi: Looks like it was just Slabjaw and brood. WTF were they all packed into one bedroom? Were there no other bedrooms? Was the rest of the place being fumigated? Smells like BS.This info is about the same family that claimed they were so poor and destitute while going to ivy league college and living off a portfolio that they were "using an ironing board as a desk and an old door propped up on sawhorses as a kitchen table".You'd have to be a retard to believe that. Someone earlier was asked why they loathe Ann Romney? Well that was the point I jumped on that bandwagon. When you look in the camera and start lying, I stop giving a shiat about you.
Darth_Lukecash: My question is why would the go to a villa instead of having it at their home?
