LMAO@ Team Romney: Obama campaign is ‘unraveling’

By Jonathan Easley - 07/13/12 12:27 PM ET
A top Romney spokeswoman said the Obama campaign’s allegations that he misled the public over his tenure at Bain Capital are “reckless and wild,” and a sign that the president’s campaign is “unraveling.”

“The only confusion that there is on this issue is from the Obama campaign,” the Romney campaign's communications director, Gail Gitcho, told Fox News Channel’s "America’s Newsroom" on Friday.

“The Obama campaign has issued these reckless and wild accusations that Mitt Romney is a criminal and a felon. That just simply doesn’t pass the laugh test," she continued, "and frankly it just shows us signs of a desperate and unraveling campaign for them to continue along these lines when there have been independent fact-checkers from all over the country who are saying they are running a dishonest attack.”

By definition, wealthy people can't do anything illegal or immoral. That's only for the little people. And anyone who's not white.

Honestly, I just said to myself before I saw this that I really needed a good laugh this morning, and was looking for some Toons on here.. and saw this. Works just as well as a Toon, complete with buffoonery, and tall tales. love it!

Obama campaign is ‘unraveling’??? Really???

Romey's campaign seems to be going through his whole arsenal of knee-jerk memes one after another. It doesn't even make sense to say this about Obama's campaign. At this rate he'll be out of ammo in a month and will be forced to steal the election.

to the extreme. You can't project EVERYTHING that is wrong with you to your opponent. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall inside the Romney campaign?

This is really unlike the GOP to be this apparently careless about their candidate. It's almost as if they don't want to win this one. I smell a rat. Actually, lots of rats.

Republicans weren't terribly into this election, which was obvious by the ridiculous primary candidates (great distraction). On the up side, the Kochs are just getting older. If we stay healthy, maybe we can outlive them!

winning the White House isn't a high priority for them. They will continue to try and take over state governments and congress. What they did in 2010 was brilliant and terrifying. While Democrats were looking at our wonderful, young president, they were sneaking in the back door.

I really underestimated them. I didn't think they were all that clever, so now I'm suspicious of everything.

Responding = Losing. Is he going to etch-a-sketch that comment now, because it looks like Romney is doing a lot of losing today.

I'd like to know who these so-called "ndependent fact checkers from all over the country" are. Documents with Rmoney's signature as CEO dated after 1999 don't lie. All they can do is accuse Obama of the exact thing they're doing.
