LOL !!! - Ok... THAT... Was Good !!! - Obama Calls Romney Speech 'A Cow Pie Of Distortion' - MSNBC



Obama calls Romney speech 'a cow pie of distortion'
By Kristen Welker, NBC News
5/24/12

<snip>

DES MOINES, IA – President Barack Obama delivered one of his most direct attacks against Mitt Romney here Thursday night, painting Romney as an out-of-touch corporate raider.

At this event, held before an enthusiastic crowd of 2,500 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, Obama reminded the crowd that Romney said “corporations are people,” while stumping in Iowa last August during the Republican primary. The president said there may be value in Romney’s experience in corporate buyouts, “but it’s not in the White House.”

He also noted that the former governor doesn’t talk about his record in Massachusetts. Speaking directly to Iowans, Obama used local lingo to slam Romney: “Governor Romney came to Des Moines last week and warned of a prairie fire of debt,” he said. “But he left out some facts. His speech was more like a cow pie of distortion.”

Then he quipped, “I don’t know whose record he twisted the most – mine or his.”


Obama warned his supporters that this race would be tougher than 2008 and argued that he represents the future and Romney the past. "We don't need another political fight about ending women's right to choose or getting rid of Planned Parenthood," Mr. Obama said as the crowd erupted into cheers.

3. Rachel Maddow's bit on Romney tonight was funny

She was proposing that Romney, who has a reputation for being an orderly and disciplined robot is actually much more gaffe-prone than Biden. She showed a recent clip of Romney laughing about a kid's weird hair, oblivious to the recent story about giving a gay kid a forced haircut in high school. Then she showed a clip of Romney at a school today surrounded by students and participating in a lesson where the teacher asked the students for an example of alliteration. Romney's contribution was the sentence "dogs drive Douglas dizzy". Romney used "dogs" and "drive" in the same sentence and was smiling like the village idiot.

8. I think Mitt's mendacity should be

joked about by cartoonists, talked about by talking-heads, blogged by bloggers. etc, until he becomes completely tarred and feathered with his own tongue. Borowitz and Letterman, you have a job to do.

I really liked Bashir's final comment about Mitts' non-drinking - it is more important what comes out of your mouth than what you put in it.

11. This is a truly great line:

Then he quipped, “I don’t know whose record he twisted the most – mine or his.”

That could go down with such Truman gems as, "The buck stops here," and, "I don't give them hell; I just tell the truth, and they think it's hell."

and if, there is a legal requirement for presidential debate? I'm afraid Romney might just try and wiggle out of debating Obama. The way he won't give interviews it would be indicated, I think.

Watching Mittens attempt to hold his own with the POTUS is gonna be more fun than a barrel of half-witted monkeys. Obama will be able to subtly needle Rmoney into saying something monumentally stupid.

22. Roll out the fainting couches

Oh my stars and garters! That Obama is just so mean to poor Mitt. This will surely give David Gregory, Chuck Todd and the rest of Beltway Insider Crowd such an attack of the vapors. And on a holiday weekend. Oh, the pain and the shame of it all. This will probably be morphed into an insult to the troops or something.

In the meantime, actual voters will surely raise the support level for Obama, who is at last beginning to act like the president we elected him to be.

Man, hope I didn't just step in it. Gotta watch the exits after those Rmoney speeches.

On edit, I see someone else knows this.

KEEP IT UP MR. "O"! KEEP BEING FRANK ABOUT THE BULLSHIT BEING SPREAD BY THOSE WHO HAVE DEMONSTRATED THEIR POLICIES OF OVER-TAXING THE MIDDLE CLASS, CUTTING SUPPORT FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT AND DEREGULATION WERE AN UNMITIGATED FAILURE AND PRODUCED THE WORST ECONOMIC DISASTER OUR COUNTRY HAS SEEN SINCE THE (FIRST) GREAT DEPRESSION - AND WHO CRITICIZE OBAMA FOR A LACKLUSTER RECOVERY WHICH IS ENTIRELY DUE TO THEIR SABOTAGING EVERY EFFORT BY THE DEMS TO REBUILD (STARTING WITH STIMULUS) OUR ECONOMY FROM THE DISASTER [FONT SIZE="3"]THEY CREATED[/FONT].

RECOMMENDED.

What do you get for sitting under a cow? A pat on the head. (cow pie, cow pat - same thing)

So I guess if you sit under Mitt Romney you also get a pat on the head too?

Hmmm....

38. the same people who want to off Planned Parenthood say poor people shouldn't have children



Just heard this reported by a Xtian friend who does work for the poor and is tired of repuglican "family values." She's voting for O this time around. She said one of her redneck Xtian acquaintances was railing against the poor having children when they couldn't afford them, and then coming to Uncle Sam for welfare.

Why are these same Republicans trying to get rid of PP if they're so concerned about the poor not having children?" And why are they so against abortion and contraception?
