Who is "Milt Romney"?
Some knuckledraggers seem convinced he's the next president, and I've never even heard of him.

6. Mittens the Chameleon Romney is Gov. of Massachusetts.
He tailors his message to the voters he wants to court.
He ran for governor claiming to be a moderate. Now that
he wants to be President, he governs like a right winger,
touring the country bashing his own state.

Local conservatives despise him and consider him a phony.
Otherwise Mittens is a 100% BushBot.

7. MITT the SHITT, as he is fondly (cough) termed in the Bay State
He is the hated carpetbagger from Utah governor of Massachusetts who lives in New Hampshire most of the time, when he isn't roaming around with his Hollywood teeth and creepy plastic hair trying to con people into believing that he is a viable candidate for the presidency. He looks like Skeletor in a blue suit.

He is a complete asshole, and a worthless tool. The only politician in Massachusetts who sucks as much as he does is his LT. Governor, who's idea of a campaign is to run on this platform:

She put her husband through school.
Her father was a WW2 vet who had a heart attack and her mother was a housewife.
She has kids.
Her opponent, Deval Patrick, worked for CLINTON!!!
Her opponent was a lawyer who WON his cases!!
Her opponent will raise taxes (left unsaid--on the RICH, while LOWERING killer property taxes).

Her ad campaign is full of dirty tricks, but no one's buying it.

10. Hopefully the soon to be former Governor of Massachusetts.
He's running for re-election this year, right? The voters of Massachusetts will throw him out on his disgusting right wing ass, right?

12. No, Mitt Romney isn't seeking re-election for governor.
He'll concentrate on running for president, instead.

MA is expected to have a Democratic governor soon: Deval Patrick.

11. We call him Mittens here in Massachusetts
But his real first name is Willard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitt_Romney

Willard Mitt Romney (b. March 12, 1947) is the 70th Governor of Massachusetts. He is currently in his first term as Governor, serving until 2007. He has stated he will not seek re-election in 2006.<5> Romney is frequently mentioned as a possible candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008. He also serves as the chairman of the Republican Governors Association and honorary chairman of The Commonwealth Political Action Committee.

15. He's a card-carrying member...
...of the Joe Smith short-sleeve buttondown and clip-on tie Missionary Brigade (Mormons, to you--he used to be a bishop before he went into politics). If he becomes President, alcohol, tobacco and caffeine will be illegal, and polygamy and special holy underwear will be mandatory. No need to worry, though; he hasn't got a chance--belonging to a weird cult that does strange things like baptising dead people is probably going to cost him support among the GOP base of religious nuts (ironically enough).

16. Just like JFK...
outlawed fish on Fridays and made mass attendence mandatory, and put a big shrine to the Virgin Mary on the White House lawn, him being Catholic and all. ;-)

18. Mittens: mormon import using Massachusetts to further career.
I predict his campaign for presidunce goes nowhere, although as an idiot son he qualifies at least on that level.

19. His first name is actually Willard. He actually prefers "Mitt", however.
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 03:36 PM by Lastlaughin08
Sounds logical, I guess. Willard isn't nearly as charming.

23. Uncle Miltie Romney? Oo, I hope not. He gives you that skeevy
feeling, like Santorum or Allen or Frist. Total sleaze.
