Poor wealthy Mitt Romney. He was rich, he was white, he was willing to say anything to get elected (love them “cheesy grits”!), the Presidency was supposed to be his. What happened? Life is so unfair! He gave everything he had to win the election…except tax returns, principled stands, the truth, compassion and the same answer to the same questions. He paid a considerable sum for the reality he was living in, it was Grand Theft Ego to steal it away from him.
In case you missed it, here is an excerpt from Mitt Romney’s interview on Fox News Sunday…which aired this Sunday and thus the title of the show was verified as the one truth broadcast on Fox News each week:
ROMNEY: “I’ll look at what’s happening right now, I wish I were there. It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done.”
People in Iran have actually expressed the opposite sentiment.
As to Romney’s poor performance in the election with minorities…
ROMNEY: “We weren’t effective in taking my message primarily to minority voters — to Hispanic-Americans, African-Americans, other minorities. That was a real weakness. We did very well with the majority population but not with minority populations. And that was a failing. That was a real mistake.”
Now let’s unpack this fertilizer salesman’s suitcase. The man who attacked Rick Perry for expressing compassion towards Latino immigrants, who promoted self-deportation for dealing with them and declared that as President he wouldn’t worry about the poor because they had their safety net…wasn’t effective in taking his message to minority voters? Just like a white elitist born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he doesn’t even know when he has succeeded.
And the white man representing the virtually whites-only political party takes pride in the fact that he won the majority of the white vote? That was a huge surprise, especially to those who are surprised by water being wet…and mighty white of him to say.
In his interview, Romney also addressed his 47% remark by blaming those who heard it for hearing it and once again telling people that they can always take him at his word when he says that he doesn’t mean what he says.
Romney went on to say that he was shocked when he didn’t win the election because he believed up until the results came in from Ohio in favor of President Obama, that he was going to win the swing states in which the polling clearly showed Obama was ahead. He also said that if he was President, he would have successfully made a deal on the sequester, his Presidency would have taken advantage of this golden moment in history and everyone would have a car elevator…whether or not they had a house.
It appears that Romney has misinterpreted the Rove gimmick of turning your weakness into a strength, he seems to think that showing that he was delusional and out of touch with reality, doesn’t take responsibility for his words and actions, lies like a sociopathic rug and blames the people he attacked and insulted for feeling attacked and insulted…that he is turning these failings into reasons to be admired. “I’m greedy, a liar and clueless…just like your favorite sitcom characters so how ’bout clapping for me when I flash the “applause” sign?”
Ann Romney has instead encased herself in a very expensive Baccarat crystal cocoon of denial and claims that the liberal elite media is all to blame for her husband being greedy, a liar and clueless.
ANN ROMNEY: “I believe it was the media’s fault as well, in that he was not being given a fair shake, that people weren’t allowed to really see him for who he was.”
“I’m happy to blame the media.”
She’s so right, if only Mitt had more time to show people who he is, I mean he and the GOP only spent $1 billion dollars in promoting him as the next President and he was all over the media for only six whole years…but that’s just one week in Denialist Douchebag years. I would love to see a reality show based on Ann Romney’s version of what “A Fair Shake” is, no doubt it involves black people not being eligible to run for President and using 99% of Americans as obstacles for training Rafalca to jump.
The ingredient label of Mitt Romney’s interview might read like this:
- Taking Responsibility for My Loss: 12%
- Blaming the Media and Others for My Loss: 18%
- Hating on Obama for Beating Me: 23%
- Reminding America of My Failings and Why Electing Me Would Have Been A Huge Mistake: 47%
We really do need mandatory labeling on our politics. It would have been a good idea to put a freshness date on Mitt Romney in a place where he could see it (his overseas bank statements?) so that he could read it today and find out that his contents (however minimal they are) have expired.
