The Eternal Victimization Of Mitt Romney

You may have heard that His Royal Mittster and Ladye Anne Mittster, aka, Mitt and Ann Romney, appeared on Fox News Sunday. A lot of choice excerpts from that appearance have been making the rounds, including Ann’s blaming the media for not giving Mitt “a fair shake” and Mitt blaming all the poors and their free Obamaphones.

Oh the poor dears. It’s all just so unfair!

But no, what everyone seems to have missed is this, regarding his “unfortunate” 47% comment (and you need to watch the video at the link to hear it):

“It was a very unfortunate statement that I made. It’s not what I meant, I didn’t express myself as I wished I would have. When you speak in private, you don’t spend as much time thinking about how something could be twisted and distorted and can come out wrong and be used …”

“When you speak in private??? Let’s remember where Mitt’s infamous 47% remark was made: at a $50,000 a plate fundraiser at the Boca Raton, Florida, home of controversial private equity manager Marc Leder.

Mother Jones reported there were 150 people in attendance at the event. That’s not exactly “speaking in private.” It is speaking to people who share your elitist views about “makers” and “takers.” By those standards, I suppose giving an interview to Fox News could qualify as “speaking in private.”

Mitt still doesn’t get it. He’s playing the victim, whaah it’s so unfair that he was secretly recorded having a private conversation with one other person in an elevator! Except that’s not what happened. He was giving a campaign speech to 150 like-minded elites at a massive fundraiser for people just like him. Of course he said what he meant. Of course he said what he believed. He said what everyone else in that room believed, except the underpaid busboy or bartender with the courage to make that tape.

Sorry, Mitt and Ann. We saw you “you people” for exactly for who you are and we said, no thanks.

  1. Agreed 10000000% that I am glad Romney is not in office right now.

    And here I thought we wouldn’t have the Romneys to make fun of anymore–at least until later this year or early 2014.

    Poor Mittunswished! He couldn’t catch up with the high heater in the bottom of ninth with game winnin’ run on third; kick the game winning field goal or run back an interscooption for a TD with time expired. Hit a nothin’ but net trey from the other team’s charity stripe or put one in the goalies “five hole” while airborne after a vicious hit by an opposing team’s goon. Nope, Mitt whiffed and, then, blames the bat.

  3. Oh, Mitt, you’ve been so wronged that I think you need to spend some more tens of millions of your huge fortune at another try. You are clearly a man of destiny. Please, please, please run again.

    The indignance is hilarious. Clearly Ann and Mitt are completely unused to being held accountable for anything. I’m sure the yes-men and household slaves they surround themselves with would never dare to bring up the horrible things they say and do, and they’re just aghast that the spotlight is being shone down on them.

    I want to be around when she asks Mitt if the dress makes her look fat.
