I Can't Stand Mitt Romney
« on: July 14, 2012, 11:54:10 AM »
It's not really his politics. Of course I don't agree with that. I don't agree with other Republicans either, but I wouldn't say I can't stand them.

It's him.

Did you ever run across a person that you just know you aren't going to be able to stand, that you just know is a jerk before you even know them?

I can't stand his smirk. I can't stand his voice. I can't stand his beady eyes. I can't stand his face or his hair. Watching him explain his Bain dealings, he just seems like a total rich jerk.

I just wanted to know if it was just me.

No, you're not the only jerk.  ;)


But yes, he does have a face you want to punch. I was just watching his Obamacare speech, and putting aside the bullshit (it'll add trillions to the deficit, where is he pulling those numbers from?), I wanted to slap my screen. I know what you mean and I agree. It's almost smug.

And, if South Park has taught us anything, it's smug is environmentally hazardous.

Hal, I'm glad someone else sees Rob Me the same way.  He's just a pompus asshole and it shows everytime he appears on TV.  I thought it was humorous the way he showed up on all the networks after Obama's attacks.  Before he would only go on FOX.  Also, did you see in the Hampton's fundraiser where some of the guests said we, the underclass, just don't understand what it is all about.

I was discussing how plastic the guy looks...
it is as if he is wearing a mask... and he pulls it off and it is the same face underneath...
he could be in a hair for men type advertisement.
he could be in ANY advertisement that is on or near the 5 o'clock news...
it is sad..

Romney, Bush Jr., Palin ... yup. All of them. I cannot think of a group of people less qualified to head up a country.

It's because he's a caricature of what a President 'should' look like.
As if he'd been designed by a committee for a Ken Burns movie.

Ultimately the thing is a *LOT* of people are getting the same vibe from him, including conservatives.


From his own website:


Quote
.. No Republican candidate ever captured the nomination after having trailed so many rivals at one time or another in straw votes, fundraising, public opinion polls, and buzz. They came at him in waves, as though they were running a relay race and Romney was running a marathon by himself. In the ended, he bested the entire tag team of Trump, Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Gingrich & Santorum.

Left unsaid is that he didn't exactly 'beat' the others, he just waited around till they all dropped out.
The others, with few exceptions were all total wingnuts with serious mental problems.  I think Santorum held on so long because he seemed to be openly advocating replacing the Presidency with a preachers pulpit.


None of the others can afford to keep on funding a bid for presidency without party backing.  He can do it out of pocket change.
If he were to spend 10% of his net worth on this presidency he'd be spending: $23 million(ish)
On the subject of money, I find myself thinking that he actually has a lot more that's undeclared, or available.


I guess you could say he's the Gordon Geckko of politicians.



Rich bastard who honestly thinks its great darwinistic capitalism is the best way to run things.  He can't connect with the majority of the country, because he's in a different timezone.  The 1% time zone where making almost 60k per DAY for doing nothing, and occasionally supplementing it with some speech money for the pocket change of 300k.  Money is meaningless to this guy.

No, this guy has no relation to the average person.  Not even the average 'rich' person.  Or, as Chris Rock would put it: there is rich, and then there is wealthy.
Give a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a night.  Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

Not just you.  I hate that someone so douchey is so rich.  I hate the way he tries to NOT take credit for creating the template for "Obamacare".  I hate the infantile way he makes political statements.  "Vote for Obama and lose jobs. Vote for me and get jobs."

I think it's the sliminess, you can just see it in his eyes, then that smug look of how awesome he is massaging misinformation into your brain. Trying to sound straight talking and honest, but you can see him lying through his teeth.

The face of a true politician.

Just another unctuous rich conservative trying to get elected. They always try to sell themselves as "ordinary" Joe Shmo who just happens to have several hundred million dollars in the bank. Yet in reality they have nothing in common with working people at all. He's never known a poor day in his entire life. I'll bet he's never paid a bill of any kind, has people to look after such trivia for him.

They pretend to be working class but put them in working class company and they are stiff and uncertain. The only time the meet ordinary people is during elections anyway as they try to convince them to vote against their own interests. Other than that the great unwashed are something to be avoided at all costs.

Of course in America, unlike every other modern democracy, they also have the added wrinkle of trying to convince a large swathe of the electorate just how "christian" they are which puts Mormon Romney at somewhat of a disadvantage when it comes to the rest of the godbotherers.

I remember a while back seeing a comparison of how President Obama and Willard Romney paid their way through Harvard Law school.[1]

Obama got student loans, and paid them off.
Romney, sold off stock now and then to make ends meet.

 1. If memory serves, and I don't feel like searching it at the moment they both graduated Cum Laude.

Everyone talks about how the economy is the #1 issue and it is important but if Mittens is elected think of what else will be affected:  soc security, medicare, health care, immigration, food stamps, planned parenthood, min wage, Supreme Court picks, prob war with Iran, relations with Central and South America, Starts powers, foreign relations with Russia and others, Middle East, etc.

It's like the Republicans and Rombo want to take us back to like that movie "Pleasantville" where all is ok with the world as long as you conform and don't ask questions about anything beyond the city limits.

Again, how is it possbile that they have so many voting against their own interests?  Are we, as a country, so afraid of     having a black man in the White House that we would elect a 1%ter who's upfront agenda is making more money for the rich...oh, sorry..."job creators".

At least vandalize the avatar so it's funny! I agree with everybody's sentiments, and I myself hate him as a person.

How can I vote for a guy who impersonates a police officer, would strap ME down and cut MY hair because it's to long, strap his DOG to the roof of a car and get mad people call him out for it, thinks he's being nice by flipping through many hundred dollar bills to give somebody a $20, purchases houses left and right just to tear them down and rebuild them which takes no consideration of his next door neighbors (1 time sure, but 1 time to many. If the house is to small, DON'T BUY IT!) etc.

I think even Mitt realizes everybody hates him so he keeps his mouth shut on as many things as possible because he doesn't know how to think like a commoner. He should look in a mirror one day, and maybe once he notices what he sees, maybe he'll finally understands why he needs the Secret Service to watch his back. I wouldn't go that far myself, but since he's obsessed with uneducating people, the stupid will eventually come back and bite him in the end.

And now, since Seppuku has Mitt Romney as an avatar, let me rebut that with some Bill Maher on Mittens!







There's more to go abound, but I don't want to clutter the thread with videos. There's also the Mitt Romney Wifer Movement, and one about Mitt Romney, The Least Interesting Man on the Planet.
