There’s a strong suspicion that Mitt Romney is something of a wimp. The biggest fear about what a Romney Administration would be like is just who would be pulling the puppet president’s strings and how far up his ass would the hand go?
Nothing about this guy screams “I’m my own man and I’m in charge.” Mitt wants to be president so bad there’s virtually no previous position he won’t abandon, no butt he won’t kiss and nothing he won’t say or do if there’s the possibility of winning a Republican vote.
Speaking at a rally in Michigan, Mitt went past the chaste hand holding he had done with Birthers like Donald Trump and went all in as opened wide for a big, deep and wet French kiss with extremism.
“No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate,” Romney said as the crowd laughed with knowing approval, “They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”
Yeah, he went there. That place where the likes of Trump and Orly Taitz are. That place where Obama is the Manchurian Candidate who wasn’t born in the U.S.A and has no legitimate claim to the presidency. The Mitt threw out some cultural warrior red meat to the rubes in Michigan and they gobbled it up.
Quickly, the Right Wing Spin Machine chugged into action and harrumped, “Why so serious? It was all just a joke “ while Mitt claimed he wasn’t referring to the president. Uh-huh. And you probably think those are raindrops falling on your head too.
Maybe Mitt wanted to remind the base he’s the White Guy in the race. Wouldn’t surprise me since he’s pulling a zero percent in Black support. He might as well go all in with playing to the wingnuts.
Mitt doesn’t speak a single word he hasn’t been programmed to say and he knew how that crack about birth certificates would go over. Like a big, stinky fart. As calculated and scripted as presidential campaigns are only a fool would think Mitt didn’t know exactly how his “riffing” would go over.
The audience didn’t laugh at the limp attempt at humor. They laughed because Mitt said what they already think. Obama is one of them, not one of us.
Poll after poll show a majority of Republicans don’t believe Obama was born in the United States. If this is supposed to be a joke about the president, y’all need to spread the word to the rest of your peeps who are taking this very seriously. They don’t seem to get the joke.
So much for Mitt talking shit about Obama running an “angry and hateful” campaign. He just went full-blown Birther on the President of the United States.
Todd Akin thanks Mittens for now saying the second stupidest thing this month
Mitt gave a handjob to the likes of Trump, Arpaio and Orly Taitz, whom all report to experiencing a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction with his little joke. Romney just invited the Birthers to join him for the clambake/cross burning in Tampa next week. They can all sit around the fire and talk about how all these foreigners need to voluntarily exit the country with Obama going first.
Mitt embracing the cranks on the extreme Right makes them a little more credible and himself much less.
Whatever the reason, Romney just forfeited any claim that it is President Obama that is waging an “angry and hostile ” campaign. He should take his magic underwear and go home to New Hampshire, Utah, Massachusetts, or whatever other state his six homes are in. He doesn’t deserve to add a seventh in Washington, D.C.
