And Don't Come Back

Mitt Romney got lost and wound up in Philadelphia. He was not well-received by the citizens or the mayor. In fact, Mayor Humpty-Hump was verbally abusive in a humorous way.

Later, as Romney was touring the all-black school, which the city school district turned over to a charter operator two years ago in an effort to improve student achievement, Democratic Mayor Michael Nutter held a press conference on a sidewalk outside blasting the Republican’s visit.

“I don’t know why this guy’s here,” said Nutter, standing behind an Obama campaign sign. Romney “has suddenly somehow found West Philadelphia, somehow now wants to talk about education.”

But the Democrat questioned whether Romney would learn much in a visit lasting less than two hours.

“I don’t know that a one-day experience in the heart of West Philadelphia is enough to get you ready to run the United States of America,” said Nutter, surrounded by several dozen chanting Obama supporters and neighborhood residents.

“Mitt Romney running his financial services firm put people out of work, damaged Americans, damaged families, caused people to lose their jobs, possibly lose their homes and all of that,” the mayor said.

“So let’s talk about that. You want to have an urban experience? You want to have a West Philly experience? Then come out here and talk to somebody in West Philly.


How's that for a respectful greeting? It's like immune cells trying to eject a pathogen. "What are you doing here? Get the hell out."

You tell him, Mayor Nutter.

2. Romney is a pathogen! I love it!

He and his ilk are like an infection and they weaken the host until there is nothing left. Exactly what Bain did.

3. Romney is a gutless

and empty vessel-just like George W Bush was. The GOP needs presidential candidates that live in fear and can be controlled. As big an A-hole a McCain was, at least he kept a shred of his own soul with him throughout the 2008 run...no wonder a lot of the neocons hated him-he couldn't be led around like the soulless Romney can be.

4. Romney may actually believe he talks to God

Or that his advisers do and thus he doesn't need to think, because God knows everything and he has a plan and Romney is his tool on earth.

5. Was he lost or did his handlers think it would be good PR

I wonder if Mitt's team thought that little, black kids would fall all over Mitt, the obviously superior human being. Seriously. Not the superior human being part of course, but that Mitt's team is really that clueless.

Link to the pictures of how awesome Obama actually is and how awesome Mitt thinks he is. The kids tell the truth.
