Mitt, Stop and Turn Around

A Romney adviser told Buzzfeed and NBC that the campaign is going to go after President Obama’s “biography.”  The unnamed source said, “I mean, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in Chicago, and was associated and worked with Rod Blagojevich to get Valerie Jarrett appointed to the Senate.”  Really?  This is how you’re going to unseat an incumbent president?  It is to laugh.

We’ve already seen John Sununu make references to Obama’s marijuana use in high school.  Even though Mitt spent his high school years assaulting gay students.

But the point is, you don’t kick a president out of office by talking about drug use in his youth or tossing around the names “Tony Reczko” or “Rod Blagojevich.”

The biography arguments were relevant when he ran against Hillary and McCain.  But once he won, none of that stuff mattered.

So Mitt you need to stop heading down this dead-end path, and turn around right now.

The only biography that matters now, Mittens, is yours because you’re the challenger.  And a really incompetent challenger at that.

Mittens, you empty suit, you’re not going to defeat the guy who scored a hit on bin Laden by whining about how he scored some weed as a teenager.   You sound like Eddie Haskell — and nobody liked Eddie Haskell.

For someone who’s wanted to be president as long as you have, you certainly haven’t come up with many winning arguments about why you deserve the job or what you’d do if you had it.  You seem to really like the idea of being president.

And if you didn’t pay any federal incomes taxes for a year or years, you need to withdraw.  How can you have $12 million to spend on an oceanfront house you’re going to tear down and spend many more millions rebuilding, and offer nothing, not a dime, for the defense of this country you claim to love so much?

    Not to mention his five able-bodied sons who never served their country, and the horde of secret service agents we’d be paying to protect them and their wives and spore.

  2. Wow. You took the gloves off!

    Not to mention Obama was called a Muslim, terrorist, and Kenyan, and he still beat a highly decorated, white man.

    Obama went into the den of lions and defended it all on O’Reilly. Yeah, loud-mouth O’Reilly who barely let him talk.

    Oh, and he beat Hillary, too.

    One point I’ve not seen made is, Does Romney really want this? Or, does Romney not know how to work hard. The guy took half a week off after July 4, and seems to be barely working the past 10 days.

    He’s supposedly heavily involved in his VP pick, but only checks in on the teams every other day — according to today’s NY Times. During the primary he barely did anything; basically outlasted the competition who at least showed courage, though usually said or did stupid things.

    Romney is a guy who I’d say has never worked a hard day in his life, and he’s about to get in a street fight with Obama and Biden? What?!

    Did he see Obama in the rain the other day? Did he not read the stories of how Obama outworked Hillary and the Clinton machine and won against incredible odds?

    People made the mistake eight years ago of saying Bush was stupid and would easily get beaten by Kerry. (I believed this, and felt certain he’d lose.)

    Bush showed metal. He clobbered Kerry.

    Now haters on the other side of the fence who’ve come to believe Obama isn’t a leader, can’t talk without a teleprompter, etc., are about to learn a similar lesson: Never listen and stay in your own choir too much; it’s quite misleading…

    Sermon over.

    • An excellent sermon!
      I think Mitt did work hard at Bain, but he’s coasting now. He’s safe in his bubble, listening only to his yes-men and yes-women, thinking he can’t lose.

      • I guess I’m not saying he didn’t work hard — or I didn’t mean to work hard.

        But I’m saying he didn’t work as hard as Obama. Or Biden.

        I own my own business. I wasn’t in a fraternity. My Dad only graduated high school and works in construction. I had zero connections. No rich family. I’ve worked my ass off. No doubt, some of my fellow rich businessmen have to. But they’ve had tons of time off. Connections I couldn’t dream of. Health insurance.

        Have they worked hard? Yes. Harder than most 40-hour work week people in America.

        Have they worked as hard as me? Hell to the no. Not even close. I’ve pulled all-nighters. I worked a side job and owned a business while going year-round to college and still pulled off a 3.67, oh and I didn’t have frat brothers showing me exams from the past three or four years or telling me what professors to take (or avoid). Or parents helping with expenses.

        Saying a rich person worked hard compared to a poor person who came from nothing is not comparing apples to apples. Not even close. Not even in the same ball field. Or even the same state.

        Honestly, I just about can’t stand rich people. That’s why I don’t golf and don’t ever plan on joining a country club. I probably don’t always use the right fork or spoon either, but I’d rather have the respect of a common laborer than some starched tie pansy who’s literally never even been in a good alley fight.

        And I’ll tell you something else. You come from a family as poor as mine? You act different. You don’t lay people off. During this recession, I kept a 50-plus year old lady on the payroll that I should have cut back on her hours. I extended by nearly two years the time I had to go w/o insurance because I trusted God would bless and protect me for helping this woman who I worried would not be able to find work. (Dont’ get me wrong, she was a great employee and great at sales — just no one was buying.)

        What would Mitt have done? What about most of his donors?

        Well, if you don’t live near people who are like your employees, or go to gyms or restaurants where there are people like your employees, you know exactly what you do. You lay them off. Immediately. And you sleep like a baby that night (with a much healthier bank account).

        There’s a reason Romney’s speeches have no fire. He’s not lived in the same world I live in, nor probably teh same world you live in. He’s been sheltered and felt safe his whole life.

        Well, Mr. Romney, welcome to reality. Sorry your frat buddies can’t tell you what to do with these two street fighters you’ve tangled with. Guess you’re wishing now you’d actually been in a good alley fight.

      • I think Mitt worked long hours at Bain Capital and was terrified of failing, although he never had to worry about putting food on the table or paying the bill if one of his kids had to go to the emergency room.
        I agree about his comfort level in firing people — it’s because he didn’t have a clue what real life is like for most people, having always had his family’s money to fall back on. That’s why he’s fine to be president of the country club or yacht club, but not the U. S.
        I’m with you about keeping that lady on the payroll. My husband and I would have done the same. That’s how I was raised. That’s how we get through hard times, by helping each other. God helps those who help themselves, but He also helps those who help others.
        Mitt lacks the “There but for the grace of God go I” gene. It’s a fatal flaw in someone running for president.

    This is so depressing . . . Eddie Haskell hurts. Seriously though, as a newly minted US citizen and registered voter I hate to think of my first vote getting lost in a stream going Mitt’s way. Where’s a campaign bus when you need one?

    I honestly don’t see how Romney can release his tax returns, and I don’t see how he can’t.

    I hope the Obama Team, and the press (bloggers, like you), will keep up the pressure.

    Remenber, you can’t spell Romney without M*O*N*E*Y; so keep ‘following the MONEY’!
