Doofus Romney Nearly Fell Off the Stage at the End of the Debate.....

Last edited Tue Oct 23, 2012, 03:34 AM - Edit history (2)

when he went to shake hands, only after he saw President Obama doing it. However, in his awkward attempts to keep up with the Real Commander-In-Chief, Romney was doing this weird squat thingie that looked quite terrible and made Romney look like a big Girlie Man Doofus. Then Ann Romney moves into action, and attempts to hold Romney so that he doesn't fall. She tries to laugh it off hoping no one notices......

and that is how these pics came to be:










Note, the incident actually looked much more embarassing on live camera, than do the pictures. I will say this about Ms. Romney, she knows how to be phony and look natural doing it. That smile that you see on her face is to cover her fear that folks would pick up on what she was doing, and she was right....cause I picked up on it right away! I'm sure the press noticed it too, but I guess they don't want to talk about it. Wonder why? Guess it would expose those two....who are as phony as a $6 bill!

4. To me, this is what those those "Men" who want to vote for this Doofus need to see......

and is about as bad as the Al Gore Kiss that the Media trashed back in 2000......

Just like Romney's sweating was worse than Gore's Sighs.....

But our Corporate media is quite silent about what ensued, and most likely hope we didn't notice.

he got caught up in drinking in what little love that is left from his die hard supporters who were there to cheer him on. he only gets to play King Romney for two more weeks then he is back
to being a nobody washed up politician who always loses.

22. I am SO glad I'm not the only one who noticed this HORRIBLE end-of-debate moment.. she was

literally holding him around the waist, she looked panicked ! He appeared out of control and not aware of what he was doing.

Then she had a vice-grip on his hand, PULLING him off-stage like you would your old demented Uncle Bob at a party, trying to get him home.

This was the SCARIEST moment of the night, IMHO !! I wish someone could get a video clip of those last moments. Thanks for posting.

36. You'd have to go to a debate link and go all the way to the end to see if they kept it..

I have it on DVR but have no earthly idea how to upload it. I'm hoping someone from the media will do this. CSPAN would be the most likely to have the entire tape, including the handshaking at the end where you will see this BIZARRO incident.

43. Thank you for the video.. Does Ann Romney stumble/ collapse towards Mitt Romney's back...

As he bends over to shake hands... her body seems to lose strength temporarily..

Or maybe I'm seeing things ...but for seconds she really grasps Mitt around the waist..

Does MS create temporary weakness? Something strange was happening...

But was Mitt supporting Ann? or Ann supporting Mitt?

I feel a little guilty disliking Ann so much...if it was her medical condition .

44. She may be wearing high heels - that would definitely throw her off balance trying to counter

balance Mitt. I'm thinking those tiny heel tips that are in fashion - not much there to balance on.

Haven't looked for any photos of her feet.

The entire thing is just "off" - much like the R/R ticket.

I wonder if there are more strange pics of this same behaviour that was over-looked until this blatant episode.....

IF Ann has had breast cancer, has MS, how is she able to Swoop and Scoop or Snatch and Grab?

IF he had some illness, wouldn't it seem more logical that he would have a male aid assist him?

What sort of RED FLAGS would that send out?

Both of them are way too weird and temperamentally unqualified to be anywhere near the White House.

This "looked presidential", as some of the pundits are saying today? Bullshit. President of a kindergarten maybe.

45. Both of them have a serious case of forced laughs and fake smiles.

Ann in particular has the look of a phony sorority girl who just learned she lost out to a more popular rival but has to fake being a cheerful loser before going back to her room and kicking a hole in the wall.

Ann has implied that Mitt dumps on her when he is upset about something. I am guessing the rest of the night was not a happy time.
