Potential Republicon Candidate #4, his name is Mitt Romney and this is part of his sad story
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 03:42 PM by louslobbs
He is the one of the most intellectually dishonest human beings in the

history of politics, an ambitious man with no political principle whatsoever.

He makes a point to claim that he is a "normal person with normal emotions".

When he greets his lawn care workers, he uses a loud, very bad accented

"Buenos dias!" to the illegal Guatemalan immigrants doing the landscaping.

He's the type of person, who the more he speaks, the less believable he

becomes. He tries too hard to convince people that he is trustworthy and

nary a hair is ever out of place. He's made it clear that he is not a

big-game hunter, but that he has always been a rabbit and rodent hunter. He

began hunting small varmints when he was about 15 and he has "hunted those

kinds of varmints since then". lol......His claim of having been a "lifelong

hunter", though he didn't own a gun, has never had a hunting license and had

only joined the NRA in August of 2006 as a "lifetime member" came about at

approximately the same moment he started to campaign for the Presidency

(obviously another Thug fake, phony and fraud lol). It turns out, his

"lifelong hunting" turned out to be a total of 2 hunts, one as a teen,

hunting rabbits in idaho, and one about the time he started running for the

Presidency, chasing lol.....fenced in quail, at a Republicon fundraiser lol.

Probably one of the most bizarre scandals of his campaign involved Jay

Garrity, his director of operations (his right-hand man.) Garrity resigned

from the campaign after several allegations that he claimed to be a police

officer, and used that phony authority to intimidate people. In one case,

Garrity pulled over a NYT reporter, ran his license plates and ordered him

to stop following the campaign caravan. He also called a plumbing company,

identifying himself as "Trooper Garrity" to complain about one of their

employees whose driving upset him. He was cited by Boston police in 2004 for

having police equipment, including a flash bar with flashing red and blue

lights in his Crown Victoria (a Ford vehicle used by many police departments at the time)

without authorization. His personnel vehicle was also part of the fraud, a Crown Vic lol,

to act as though he were part of the undercover state troopers security detail. Though he resigned,

Garrity remained under investigation in two other states for impersonating a

police officer. You can tell a lot about a person by the company he keeps.

It actually gets worse, Garrity made up fake police badges, and gave them to

several other staffers who used them to order reporters and other people out

of events, get past security guards and get this, with all his money, they

used these fake badges to avoid paying highway tolls. I guess they needed

those stinking badges after all. The sad thing is, staff members who were

using the badges, knew they were fake and illegal. It's hard to believe that

Mitt Romney (Yes, you guessed it, it is none other than, not a hair out of place, Mittens)

himself did not notice the badge flashing, after all, Garrity rarely left

his side and Garrity was constantly flashing the police badge as they blew

through security into various events and venues, so how could Mittens not know lol.

Each day, everyday, your right hand man (who rarely leaves your side) and other staff,

are flashing their phony police badges and Mitt Romney, the Presidential candidate,

knows nothing about it? lol, Give me a break, just another in the line of

fake, phony and fraudulent Republicons, and yes, using a fake police badge is

illegal and the former governor knew it, in any event, ignorance of the law

is no excuse even if it's feigned.

Mittens also claims to be tough on illegal immigrants and has pushed for a "wall on

the Mexican border" so fervently, that at the time, Bill (LOOFAH) O'Reilly offered to

call it the "Mitt Romney Memorial Wall." There was only one glitch in this, while

Romney was talking tough on the "illegals wall talk", immigrants (illegal) had been doing

his gardening for over 10 years. They made $8 to $9 per hr working 11hr days.

Two of these former workers were interviewed back in Guatemala, where they

have returned. "They (the Romney's) wanted that house to look really nice," said one

worker, now back in Copado, Guatemala. "It took a long time." The other, Rene

Alvarez Rosales (now in Suchitepequez, Guatemala) said it cost him about

$5,000 to have a smuggler take him back across the border. When asked about

the illegal workers on his property, Romney replied "aw geez" and then walked

away lol. Now if that's not Presidential lol, I don't know what is.

On one occasion, a legitimate state trooper (a real one with a real badge and everything),

with the Romney security detail, asked about the immigration status of the

workers on Mittens property, he was told they were legal, but when asked to see their papers,

the "real" trooper was told, they just "forgot" to bring their

papers that day lol, oh well, maybe they'll bring them on the morrow.

Some of his flat out lies, say a lot about the man who made most of his money

buying struggling companies, laying off workers, breaking up the companies

and selling off the assets, nice guy huh? A typical me me me, I got mine

Political Pig. Some of those little lies are as follows, Mittens has said:

"I've been a hunter pretty much my entire life."
(He hunted once at 15, and a second time in his late 50s.)

"I have a gun of my own."
(Not true. He was talking about a gun one of his grown sons own.)

"I told you what my position was, and what I, what I did as governor; the

fact that I received the endorsement of the NRA."
(No - and his Democratic opponent actually had a higher NRA rating)

"I saw my father march with Martin Luther King."
(No, they never marched together. They were both in Michigan at the same time
once, but Mitt was in France on his mission.)

"My father and I marched with Martin Luther King Jr. through the streets of
Detroit."
(even more false...)

This last lie was the best of all because of the waffling that Romney did

trying to explain it. After a Boston newspaper showed that they couldn't have

marched together, a Mittens spokesman said that "George W. Romney and Martin

Luther King Jr. marched together in June, 1963 although possibly not on the

same day or in the same city." And Mittens then explained "I've "tried" to be

as accurate as I can be, (lol) the man needs to "try" in order to tell the truth.

If you look at the literature, or look at the dictionary, the term 'saw'

includes being aware of, if you say "I saw Roger Federer beat Novak

Djokovic", it doesn't necessarily mean you were there.

Mittens was even able to avoid the vietnam war because he was on his "Mormon

mission", traveling around the French countryside. The Mormon church

defines missions, (which all good young Mormon men go on) as a form of

"priesthood.) Not one of Romney's 5 sons has served in the armed forces, even

though their father argues for American military involvement in various countries

around the globe including but not limited to Iraq.

And if you want to hear a statement that screams entitlement or "I'm better than

you are", when Mittens was asked to justify his hypocrisy, he claimed that "his

sons were serving their country by driving Winnebago's around Iowa campaigning

for him." How pathetically self serving of him. Sure, that's exactly like

serving your country on a battlefield dodging bullets and avoiding Improvised

Explosive Devices that blow off body parts and kill. What a bunch of scum.

So, Republicons would seriously consider this person to have the power of the Presidency?

Just another fake, phony and fraud and 5 fake, phony and fraudulent sons in the making.

Great, just what this country needs, 5 more super rich, entitled, arrogant, silver spoon

fed dirt bags who could run for office at some point and continue their fathers lies and pandering

and do god knows what further damage, to our already faltering Democracy. Mitt Romney should never

be President of these currently Divided States of America, he could only divide them more and continue

the Republicons path of destruction.

3. It was no trouble. As soon as I saw that you hadn't taken the
time to format your post, I clicked away and wrote that reply. No trouble at all.

5. I think the problem might be, that I type my work onto a notepad and then copy it from there to DU
do you think that is what the problem might be?

8. Thanks, I want them to be readable without people struggling, so I'll be more conscious of breaking
it up into easier to read paragraphs rather than the current form that is more difficult to read. No one should have to find it tedious to read what anyone else writes. Thank you PCIntern.

4. It's simple, really. Mittens grew up as "mormon royalty".
Of course he's a despicable human being as a result, and is also aggressively insincere. What do you expect?

6. I have no respect for and expect nothing from these types, I just believe they need to be outted so
they have less of a chance of getting more power. Thanks for the comment.
