After reading about the Romney campaign’s renewed effort to “vet” the President by attacking President Obama about all of the shit that was discussed back in 2008, does anyone else get the impression that Mitt Romney is one of those guys who is calm on the surface, but scary as fuck behind closed doors? Like, when he powers down, he pulls his Mission Impossible 2-style face mask off, and white doves start flying out of his mouth?
I’m just asking, because the Romney campaign is falling apart and I’m not sure how much more Mitt3PO can stand without going America on everyone’s asses. Certainly, Mitt’s new plan to talk about cocaine, marijuana, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Goddamn America, and Rod Blagojevich is the dumbest fucking idea I ever heard of.
Look: Nobody whose brain is not attached by electrode to the Fox News Grumpy White Guy Info-station is interested in hearing about that crap anymore. Nobody. If you’re gonna bring up old shit, at least make it interesting. Have Sheriff Joe conduct a taxpayer-subsidized survey of the number of Negroes President Obama has hugged or something. (We know it’s at least one.)
Moreover, how in thee hail are you gonna vet a guy who has served as president for the last 3 1/2 years? It doesn’t make any sense.
It seems to me that Mittroid is used to getting his way. He thought that he would be able to buy this presidency because it’s his turn, dammit. Mitt was willing to play nice (ok, nice-ish), and to stick to low-volume dog whistles and tame microaggressions. But that was before the skinny black guy had the nerve to call him out for making hundreds of millions of dollars off of the backs of American workers, and then lying about it. And then that campaign manager of his, that Stephanie lady, had the nerve to call Mittens a felon. That was over the line, man!
Except she totally did not call him a felon. She merely said what is true: that if Mitt Romney lied on his SEC filings he might have committed a felony.
But if there’s one thing that Republicans do well, it’s irrational victimhood. And Romney is wearing his victimhood like a champion.
