Mitt Romney Memory Hole

Much is being made of Matt Romney’s birther joke, which stirred a memory from Mittens’ last failed attempt to win the favor of Republican voters. Back then he was asked why none of his strapping young sons had served in the military. The answer, from the memory hole:

Romney: Sons Serve Country By Campaigning

(AP) Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday defended his five sons’ decision not to enlist in the military, saying they’re showing their support for the country by “helping me get elected.”

[…]

Romney noted that his middle son, 36-year-old Josh, was completing a recreational vehicle tour of all 99 Iowa counties on Wednesday and said, “I respect that and respect all those and the way they serve this great country.”

Oh, the unbearable, insufferable hubris of our ownership class. An RV tour of Iowa to elect his dad is somehow comparable to those serving in Iraq or Afghanistan? I don’t think so, Mittens. Of course, he’s refashioned himself into a “populist” now.

Sorry, it was hard to type that without laughing myself silly.

  1. Mittunswillard and his family are reason enough to despise the moron religion; then there’s the Osmond family.

    I don’t know where Romney gets the notion that not showing his tax returns is gonna be plus.

    • I was so furious when I read this first thing that I almost puked. But since I do not want these arrogant rich spoiled brats to ruin my day, I ranted on FB, and Yahoo News. It always makes me feel better to get the truth out there to counter all the hate of our brilliant one-half Black President. The FACT is that Romney cannot release his tax returns. The returns would show he is still making millions from Bain Capitol and their ongoing goal which is closing small businesses and firing all the workers in the US and elsewhere. Also another FACT. Romney’s grandfather was a member of one of the SLDS cults that ran away to Mexico to escape justice for enslaving all those wives and kids. And I have a tee shirt with ‘the birth certificate’ that I will be wearing every week until Nov 5, 2012 as I work 24/7 to re-elect our President…and those snide, sarcastic, dipsticks names Romney ain’t gettin’ their evil hands on it.

    I hope all you good folks have a better year than the last. Live it to the fullest – ’cause we don’t know what’s going to happen next.

  3. 99 out of 100 hardcore racists learned their behavior from their parents. So the birther joke clears up any controversy surrounding the “Keep America American” campaign. Not that there ever was any controversy except among republican apologists.

    Butt didn’t really understand the question fully. He felt that the best way his children could serve the defense industry investment class was by campaigning for dear old Dad. I don’t think he really gets behind the idea of serving his country. If by some horrible miscarriage of justice Butt actually becomes the forty-fifth president we truly are in some deep caca. Either way, the thought of his family patrolling Sea Lane from their thirty-foot high box mansion where now stands a classic Southern Californian Spanish-style beach manse just sickens me. Shudders.
