BunkoSquad: Jesus Christ, that schmuck couldn't even win an election in his own house
parasol: I remember this! It goes:"Yeah? So WHAT? I didn't want to .......... ANYway!"Parents of small children, ya with me?
clambam: The other Romneys must have been given the wrong date for the vote.
what_now: That is such fng revisionist history. Mitt was elected as Governor of Massachusetts in 2002. By 2004, he had taken a HARD right turn, reversing his opinion on choice, gay rights, stem cell research and taxes.It was very clear that he considered being our governor a stepping stone to the Presidency.
gimmegimme: BunkoSquad: Jesus Christ, that schmuck couldn't even win an election in his own houseHe didn't even get 47%!
BunkoSquad: clambam: The other Romneys must have been given the wrong date for the vote.Bapp didn't have the two forms of ID that Romney family votes require, and Pimm was scared away by a Black Panther (which may actually have been a coat)
Fart_Machine: Yeah but who trusts an internet poll really.
Jackson Herring: well we all know what befall Bapp for giving that fateful bit of advice....[i.imgur.com image 428x87]rumor has it, Romney had the Stericycle invoice framed
what_now: If there is a God, Mitt Romney will run again in 2016. For the lulz.
Kittypie070: Even up until the day before he made the announcement, he was looking for excuses to get out of it.Holy sh*t.THEN YOU SHOULDA MANNED UP, WILLARD AND SAID NO.
Mikey1969: Over the Christmas break of 2010, Mitt Romney and his family took an internal poll on whether he should run for president once more. Twelve family members cast ballots. Ten said no. One of the 10 was Mitt Romney himself.THEN WHY THE FARK DID YOU HAVE A VOTE?!?!?!Seriously, what's the point of having the family vote if you're going to let 1/5 of the voters make the decision for you, even to the point of going against your OWN choice?This just makes him look even stupider.BTW Subby, didn't realize that Foinsap was a Don Martin/Mad Magazine thing. Nice call.
nmrsnr: To be fair, though, he did run his campaign as if he were deliberately trying to lose, so this does explain that.
Kittypie070: And what was all that trumped up hullabaloo about an alleged White Horse Prophecy, anyway?
BunkoSquad: Tagg: You won 10-2! You don't have to run!Mitt: YAY!!!Ann: Karl Rove's on the phone. You have to run anyway.MITT: Oh, but I was going to set off some fireworks buy out the entire fireworks supply on the eastern seaboard to celebrate.
theorellior: I'm gonna go for Gohmert/Bachmann for 2016.
Befuddled: Given that R-Money is a massive narcissist, I find it hard to believe that he didn't want to be President.
IdBeCrazyIf: theorellior: I'm gonna go for Gohmert/Bachmann for 2016.No chance the GOP will see the inside of the WH so might as well shoot for the moon?

WizardofToast: Fox and the Grapes.
elchip: Right. He didn't want to run, he only threw his hat in the ring when it became clear that he HAD to run to save the country from Obama and the other candidates who would lose to him.He's a regular Stannis Baratheon.
POWRSURG: What about Tugg Romney?
Diogenes: The family portrait is like a collection of stills from the old Batman show.[dailyrepublic.typepad.com image 250x283]
Corvus: Come on subby what else do you think a robot would name his children?
Pope Larry II: Everythime I see stories like this one I keep thinking of the Monty Python sketch "Upper Class Twit of the Year".Someday he'll run himself over with the car.
yet_another_wumpus: "Romney explained that he ultimately decided to run when he saw the other (leaving-something-to-be-desired) candidates in the GOP field."...
yet_another_wumpus: Can anyone argue against this? During the whole primary, it seemed that it was Phoney against tag-teaming Derp candidates. I think the GOP should have been glad that had something happened to Obama, they at least would have been able to run a credible campaign against Biden. "The field" was a joke (of course, that could have been intentional to make later gaffs look intentional. And it only took the removal of one non-derpy dark horse candidate to do it.
rufus-t-firefly: So, at Christmas 2010 he didn't want to run for president.So why did his book tour from March of that year include a signing and a speech in Iowa? And why did he pretty much live there in 2007 - visiting all 99 counties? Just for fun?http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0110/31133.htmlhttp://theiowarepublican.com/2012/mitt-romney-and-iowa-a-long-journe y- together-to-the-white-house/Christ, what an asshole.
God Is My Co-Pirate: God tells all the most hilarious candidates to run.
shanteyman: Why run if you yourself don't feel that you should ? The man's got some real issues ....
spongeboob: elchip: Right. He didn't want to run, he only threw his hat in the ring when it became clear that he HAD to run to save the country from Obama and the other candidates who would lose to him.He's a regular Stannis Baratheon.Stannis Baratheon is a badass who was first on the wall at the battle of Blackwater.Mitt, I wanted to serve my country but my church needed me in France, would have been Joffery, hiding in his bedroom.And Mitt seems to have the same sense of humor as Joffery as well.
Apropos to nothing really, I live in a part of the country where it's not odd to see political stickers put on cars as a testament to one's political beliefs long after the election was held.Case in point: A two year old Benz with a
