hilarious!! Mitt Romney receives newfound enthusiasm from Republicans

romney gets hand job from washington post

--------------------

NEWARK, Ohio — Mitt Romney is still awkward sometimes, a bit robotic and stilted at the lectern. But a turnabout seems to be happening: Voters say they are seeing him through a new prism.

“He’s not stiff. He’s letting his own human nature through, talking like you and I are talking now, not guarded and watching what he’d say,” Marge Sowa, 69, said of the Republican presidential candidate after sizing him up at a pancake breakfast in Brunswick, Ohio, during his tour of potential battleground states. “He showed personality — oh, big time. He was one of the guys.”

One of the guys. That’s a far cry from how voters described Romney during the tumultuous GOP primaries. Now that he is their likely nominee and running an extremely close race against President Obama, Republicans are demonstrating fresh enthusiasm.

Instead of polite clapping, Romney’s campaign speech riffs are cheered with hoots and whistles and chants of “Rom-ney! Rom-ney!” As he builds to the crescendo in his remarks — saying it’s time to take the torch and hold it up high so the United States can again become “that shining city on a hill” — his words are drowned out with bursts of applause.

2. Oh, FFS -

"As he builds to the crescendo in his remarks — saying it’s time to take the torch and hold it up high so the United States can again become “that shining city on a hill” — his words are drowned out with bursts of applause..."


and the clouds part and a heavenly host begin singing the most rapturous tune, and the very hand of Almighty God Himself descends to Earth, pointing directly toward Romney, and a deep, booming voice is heard to say, "Behold your next President!"


The Washington Post has become absurd.

4. I just don't think it will be physically possible to keep up this fake enthusiasm for 5 months.

And if Romney is "one of the guys", I am one of the cheerleaders for the Dallas Cowboys.

6. Translation: Republicans suddenly remembered that Romney's opponent is black

 

And for them, the only thing worse than a god-damned Mormon president is a god-damned ni**er president!

10. "He was one of the guys"

Said Marge Sowa, 69. I'm sure she knows what it's like to be one of the guys. Where did they find her.

11. Remember these are the same folk that founded the flavor of the month club.....

A few months ago it was 'clown a' our hero; anybody but Mitt!
Then it was 'clown b' our hero; anybody but Mitt!
Then it was 'clown c' our hero; anybody but Mitt!

Now Mitts big bucks have prevailed so it's time to get in line.

Think of herd animals finely accepting the Alpha male.
Rugged individuals all, they know when it's it's time to jusk ask.......
What color and how much? Sir!
