ROMNEY = Condescending Jackass --- Here's The Proof



these three sentences, from The New York Times writeup of Romney's visit to the Daytona 500, might just be the three most hilarious sentences about Mitt Romneybot that you read all day.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/27/us/politics/santorum-makes-case-for-religion-in-public-sphere.html?_r=3&pagewanted=2&hp

But the crowd initially booed Mr. Romney, who occasionally struck a discordant note, as when he approached a group of fans wearing plastic ponchos. “I like those fancy raincoats you bought,” he said. “Really sprung for the big bucks.”


The only question is whether he's so clueless that he's never seen plastic ponchos before and actually thinks they are a big money item ... or if he's a enough of a condescending jackass that he'd make fun of somebody for wearing one.

8. Something tells me we're going to be hearing this phrase a LOT in the next 6 months.

"He didn't REALLY say that, did he?"

2. What is sad, is that the ones he insulted didn't even get it

They all ponied up to him regardless of his crap.

3. Ha - and you didn't even include his other idiotic Richie Rich statement from yesterday.

Romney was at Daytona last year and said he also has been to the track in New Hampshire. Does he follow the sport?

"Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans," he said. "But I have some friends who are NASCAR team owners."

7. Because they are also mind-bogglingly cheap.

There is very little as disgusting as watching the well-heeled haggling over price because they feel entitled to special favors.

"Can you do better?"

"Certainly. Ten percent more. Much better for me."

9. yes, that was the image I had in mind

can't stand it when they tip badly, too, and/or treat people like slaves rather than people working a service job (many such jobs are held by women; I think they don't know how to treat women like human beings either. No respect for other people, no concept that we're all interdependent (they wouldn't have that nice car or that nice meal without the work of a LOT of other people, who deserve respect, appreciation and a living wage)

6. He reminds me a bit of Poppy Bush.

 

He's grown up in privilege and has absolutely no idea how to relate to the riff-raff and rabble. I'm sure this was his attempt at humor, but coming out of his mouth it always misfires on its way past the silver spoon in his maw.

13. And Babs Bush too.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway," she said, "so this is working very well for them."

10. To paraphrase the late great Ann Richards

"Poor Mitt - he was born with a silver foot in his mouth".

work boot in the butt.

15. I just don't see how he's managed to make it this far with terminal foot-in-mouth disease.




I actually think he's worse than Shit-for-Brains ever was
when it comes to saying something astoundingly stupid.
