MITTENS HAZ A SAD  11:04 am June 13, 2011

Mitt Romney Drives Around Detroit In Campaign Video, Says It’s Awful

by Wonkette Jr.

nom nom nomExecution worshipper Mitt Romney has a strange new campaign video that features Mittens driving around very depressing neighborhoods in Detroit, lost maybe? No, it is Mitt Romney’s Tour of Ruined America, which is not Obama’s fault, says Mitt (ALWAYS BLAME OBAMA, MITT), but Obama isn’t fixing it, either. Blah blah, this explanation is taking too long. What will Mitt do to fix it? He will get to that later, he is busy feeling sorry for Michigan right now. This Obama character has done nothing to help Detroit, because the auto bailout does not count for adding 50,000 jobs, for being socialist. “He made things worse,” Mittens says to some invisible person in the back seat of the car, and for a moment you forget whether he is talking about Obama or just talking in third person about his own campaign, by making this weird, sad video about how sad Detroit is. Watch it after the jump:

It’s hard to tell what the message of this campaign video is. “Mitt Romney understands that Detroit sucks,” which is a fundamental thing for any presidential candidate to understand. “Mitt Romney hires camera crews to shoot video of boarded up homes and empty lots,” which is another thing we can think about from now on when we remember Mittens, in our dreams at night.

So now he's complaining? Instead of bitching about the industry his father helped build, he should have done something when he had a chance.

Serolf_Divad June 13, 2011 at 11:47 am

Oh but he did do something when he had a chance… he wrote an editorial that can best be summed up: Fuck You, Detroit, I've Got Your Rescue Package Right Here (grabbing crotch).

Beowoof June 13, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Which he wrote after sending their jobs to China through his equity firm.

Negropolis June 13, 2011 at 11:30 pm

Which he wrote after he won the primary here by admonishing John McCain leveling with workers telling them that some jobs would be lost, forever.

RadioJr. June 13, 2011 at 11:59 am

You meant, of course, bitchin Camaro.

horsedreamer_1 June 13, 2011 at 1:24 pm

The "undercover Mexican" Mitt does have a job at West Coast Customs lined-up, should his campaign fail, yes.

hagajim June 13, 2011 at 11:09 am

Seems like a video Michael Moore might have done in criticizing GM. However, since Mittens has already bitched about the bailout I imagine Detroit is telling him to just GTFO now!

Sue4466 June 13, 2011 at 11:13 am

And since Mittens made buckets of money taking over companies, laying off workers, then handing the "new leaner" companies over so they could go bankrupt, he's hardly in a position to judge GM. Though, being a Republican he won't let that stand in his way.

GOPCrusher June 13, 2011 at 3:39 pm

Roger and Me came out in 1989 and asshats like Mittens attacked Michael Moore for promoting class warfare in this country.

nounverb911 June 13, 2011 at 11:11 am

Is Romney at least driving an American made car?

easybaked June 13, 2011 at 11:15 am

Yes, but he has an Irish Setter strapped to the roof.

HobbesEvilTwin June 13, 2011 at 1:07 pm

I call total BS – the last time Mittens actually drove himself anywhere was probably 1991.

GOPCrusher June 13, 2011 at 5:38 pm

If Obama is going to ignore unemployment he should at least have the decency to focus on the most pressing issues of our day, such as changing the definition of rape to keep those sluts from getting abortions and cutting funding to NPR.

Allmighty_Manos June 13, 2011 at 11:14 am

"If I was president, I'd make sure this place was boasting 75 percent unemployment. That is my promise to America. I endorse this message because its time we had leadership that understands that letting the Big 3 go under for good was the right thing to do at the right time."

LabRodent June 13, 2011 at 11:16 am

Wanna bet thats the first time hes been in that area where THOSE people live.

elviouslyqueer June 13, 2011 at 11:22 am

You noticed that too? Romney: "Hey guys, make sure you get a good shot of that black person walking across the street."

chicken_thief June 13, 2011 at 12:47 pm

The Donald advised him to include footage showing that he was comfortable with The Blacks.

memzilla June 13, 2011 at 11:16 am

Let's be clear: the Rethuglicans are blocking job-creation efforts in order to saddle Obama with a bad economy which will, they hope, make people vote Rethuglican in 2012. The Rethuglicans' lust for power, over the welfare of the country, is a meme the Democrats should use, along with the R's Class Warfare and the War on Wimminz.

SarcasticNymph June 15, 2011 at 1:01 am

Democrats wouldn't even do this when they had majorities in Congress, then screwed up 2010 elections and lost the House. Why do you think Obama & the Dems will pick up this meme now – this same meme most of the rest of the country supports, but Dems aren't listening? Obama is busy courting low-information dumbass "independents" and blowing Wall Street CEOs and gutting his own half-assed economic program right now for campaign $$$$. What we need is a fucking revolution of the people, but I'm not holding my breath. (For some reason I'm reminded of the Che Guevera cagener.)

I can't watch the video, but: see highlighted in screen shot background:

"Innovation is Rewarded.

… and the other sign to his left: "WIZDOM U[niversity]." Because, magic underpants are for wizards-in-training. Anyway it was high time Mitts started talking spelling *street* to compete with the likes of T-Paw.

(I still don't get the Execution Is Worshipped thing. I can't even speculate how to fill in the blanks for that to have context or sense.)

HistoriCat June 13, 2011 at 11:23 am

It's a subtle message to help him appeal to voters in Texas.

I'm pretty sure Detroit returns the sentiment, fluffinhead.

And how, oh how, do we get any of these assholes to admit that yes, the stim was too small and loaded with tax cuts; but the parts that actually created jobs had Con fuckwits running around taking credit for them and handing out huge, cartoon sized checks. Why can't anyone ever point that out when one of these gasbags calls the Recovery Act a failure?

FakaktaSouth June 13, 2011 at 11:18 am

He's just pissed cause they ignored his idea to let the car industry completely fail so he could go in with Bain Capital and fire everyone, strap their dogs to the roof of his car and bust outta town ringing bells and shooting guns like Paul Revere. Fuckers.

When my sister was in high school, she had a class assignment to create a campaign poster. She drew a generic sort of good-looking guy and wrote underneath:

That's pretty much the overall campaign strategy. Be ready to hear how "presidential" Mittens looks.

edywin2 June 13, 2011 at 3:44 pm

Fear not. In the shot where you see Mitty, he is in Royal Oak (Home of the late Dr. Kevorkian)on about 12 mile road, but when you see the burnt out houses, that is Detroit, down past 8mile. Funny how you can do that in a video.

ginrevolution June 13, 2011 at 11:18 am

Poor, stupid Detroit. Ever since Eminem exploited the rotting city in a commercial, it has become a convention in bad self-promotion.

CapeClod June 13, 2011 at 11:20 am

In his next video he'll tell us how the former industrial towns in Ohio "Look like plugged toilets."

This reminds me of the Super bowl Chrysler add with Eminem only it has lower production values more lying and a less Presidential star.

aguacatero June 13, 2011 at 11:24 am

Also too, Mitt has had more than one shot.

Terry June 13, 2011 at 11:46 am

The Chrysler ads are about giving Deeeeetroit a bit of pride (also sellling cars). Mitt's ad is about kicking Deeetroit in the nuts when the city is down.

JustPixelz June 13, 2011 at 11:23 am

"He made things worse"

Pretty sure Mittanual J. RomneyCare is talking about my neighbor, who bought a Honda last week. Damn those Americans for ruining Detroit!

aguacatero June 13, 2011 at 11:23 am

I don't think Mittster is getting the votes of the cops he's trying to glad-hand about 5 seconds into the video.

They are giving him some serious stony face — almost as if, a few seconds earlier, Cop A had whispered to Cop B, "Major League asshole," and Cop B had whispered back, "Big time!"

SarcasticNymph June 15, 2011 at 1:08 am

The cops know Repubs like Mittster will dissolve their union once they are elected.

Maybe Texas would like him. He and Rick Perry could have a "hair-off".

So Romney rode around in an Italian car?

AJWjr. June 13, 2011 at 11:35 am

Fiat, apparently. My own Mighty Dodge was built during the time Daimler Benz owned it, but it was built in sunny Saltillo Messico.

My Corolla was built in Fremont, California.

"And here is where we'll build the debtor's prison, which is conveniently located next to the elementary re-education camp, where we teach ten year olds how operate the heavy machinery, and just down the street from the senior center/sanitary land fill. Cradle to grave, we figure that we'll get about 2800 hours of work a year for 45 years out of those little unaborted underclassmen. "

Now if Mittens was delivering his sad commentary while strapped to the roof of a car being driven slowly around ruined Detroit I might be tempted to vote for him.

Make it a February rain/ice storm and I would watch the video.

That is as far as I am prepared to go at this time.

But if mittens does it I guarantee great coverage, he would definitely go viral.

Pragmatist2 June 13, 2011 at 11:33 am

I recall well when Detroit started to decline. The mid-60s. Mitt's dad was Governor of Michigan at the time. So it is fair to say "Romney was in charge when Detroit collapsed."

Trollina Dumbass June 13, 2011 at 11:34 am

So Obama hasn't done anything to improve the economy, but shipping factory jobs to Mexico and overseas will make it better how? Billionaires will be able to freely walk the formerly dark-hued streets of the city and toss fast food coupons to alley urchins?

So, wow, I thought it was bad when people was blaming Obama for the Bush collapse and recession, but apparently now he's also responsible for Detroit going to shit several decades ago under Reagan.

Unless… maybe the reason he keeps faking his birf certificate is that he's a shape-shifting, time-travelling sharia-bot?

Mitt's voters are in rural Michigan. Deeetroit City has liberals, minorities, and immigrants, not his voting block. Talking trash about the city plays right to the militia types in the rural areas who stockpile weapons in case Deetroit somehow makes a play for the rest of the state.

EatsBabyDingos June 13, 2011 at 11:45 am

Does Mittens own a shirt other than the vintage 1974 Graph Paper Girranimal shirt? I've seen this one about a dozen times lately.

He should wear a "My hand is a Dolphin" t-shirt. That would say something other than "I am a boring old white guy."

If Mittens had one-half of a hair on his magic Depends covered ass he would be wearing a Wonkette Don't Teabag on Me tee.

And if you re-elect the nigger in the white house, he is going to turn all of America into Detroit, and there'll be rioting and welfare Cadillacs and loud rap music everywehere, and Obama will personally rape your wife and daughters."

Hey, Detroit was bad under Ronald Reagan in the 80's.

I don't blame Ronald Reagan, but Reagan didn't fix Detroit, either.

In fact, Reagan's "Free Trade" policies in which he destroyed over 200 successful years of tarriffs, union bashing and outsourcing Detroit's jobs did just one thing:

He made things worse

Negropolis June 13, 2011 at 11:48 pm

The kind of conventional widsom is that from the 50's to the 80's, Detroit had at least the chance to be turned around. Reagan made whatever shread of a chance Detroit had to turn-around completely impossible. Detroit definitely went pass the point of no return during the 80's. This was the height of the crack epidemic, which had the effect of making Detroit America's most murderous city during that decade. Crack heads were literally kicking in people's doors and jumping through closed windows to steal stuff to pay for their habit, that decade. Detroit's pretty bad, now, but the 80's were total hell.

So, Mitt drives around Detroit in a new Chrysler, a car that literally would not exist but for the actions of the Obama Administration, and he says Obama did not make things better?

I am confused by this.

tessiee June 13, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Translation: Obama is a black colored muslin, therefore things that got worse during his administration are his fault; but things that got better during his administration are a complete accident, or accomplished in spite of Obama (sole exception, the capture of Bin Laden, which is to the credit of time-traveling Bush).

Not a single positive idea or suggestion about how to remedy the situation, just driving around exploiting the plight of Detroit to try to pin false blame on Obama.

Rich, good-looking, privileged upbringing and education and all there is to this guy is "I NEED to be president." I don't think there has been such a cynical, self-directed person in American politics since Richard Nixon.

Was with you until the last sentence, but since cynical self-direction is pretty much the sine qua non of a presidential run, I'm not sure ol' Mitt is really that much different than anyone else.

"all there is to this guy is "I NEED to be president." "

Next time I get a job interview (assuming there is a next time), I'll convince them to hire me by telling them that I need an ass-ton of money.

And for the Magic Underwear factory tourists, you could have one of those machines that turns a penny into a Golden Plate replica…

And then Weiner actually waves his magic fairy wand around and everyone's taxing his gig. You just can't win!

"The Republican Party"

That's a dangerous neighborhood!

Lines up with their strategy of telling Blacks and Hispanics that they are being exploited by the Democrats, while also accusing them of stealing from the White Man.

When is Mittney gonna get with the program and tweet pictures of his schlong?
Not that I have any genuine desire to see it; I just want to see whether the old sayings are true and his freakishly oversized hands indicate the size of any other parts.

The adobe ranchero he was born in still exists, his cousins live in it.

Why does Mitt have to be so gosh-darn negative? Why can't he visit something nice in Detroit, like those nifty new urban farms that Bank of America created?

As usual, the reich wing is wrong.
Obama is refusing to whip out his magic wand (heh) and fix everything, not because the unions won't let him, but because it's all part of his fiendish plan to let the "urbans" take over.
That's why he's always matching his fingertips sinisterly and murmuring, "Exxxxxcellent".

Hey, Mitt. Guess how it got that way?

Here's a stat to chew on: between 1943 to 1963, there was a dislocaton of 134,000 jobs from the city to suburb. Approximately between the same time (1950 to 1960) the population loss totaled about 140,000. Surprise, right? No. Government policies (Democratic and Republican, BTW) are directly responsible for suburban sprawl. This is before the riots, before things "got bad", so there is no way to blame this one "the blacks".

BTW, guess who met Mitt when he stopped in Michigan, last week? 100 protestors. Welcome back to Michigan, bitch.

You know what really irks people here in Michigan about Mitt whoring around here? It's him constantly pimping out his ties to the state via his father. Anyone that remembers or has studied Michigan governor George Romney is insulted by what his son became.

George Romney was a liberal Republican when there really was such a thing. Romney was a staunch supporter of the Civil Rights Movement, even welcoming MLK to Detroit when he did his march, here. He was criticized for his support of the movement by those in his own faith. He also instituted Michigan's income tax; something a Republican could never get away with, today. On top of that, during his presidential campaign, he fell out of favor with the party when he eventually came out against the Vietnam War admitted to being "brainwashed" which killed any chance he ever had of getting the nomination.

His son would be lucky to have half the character his daddy did.
