You don't have one of these paintings of yourself, too?Moneybags Mitt Romney, a man who has by one estimate about as many dollars as there are adult humans in the United States, is trying desperately to woo his way into ordinary conservative voters’ reluctant panties with outlandish claims that he is somehow “one of them” instead of just the guy who “owns them,” but he fails at this because his pick-up lines are just awkward. Mittens told a group of town hall attendees that he is part of the “80 to 90 percent of us” who belong to the middle class, which is demonstrably neither the portion of people who are middle class in the United States nor the part of it that Mitt Romney belongs to. Mitt, he’s so smooth!

From CBS News:

At a town hall meeting here, the millionaire GOP presidential contender told his audience that he favors a tax policy that will help “those who have been hurt by the Obama economy.”

“And that’s the middle class,” Romney continued. “It’s not those in the low end; it’s certainly not those in the very high end. It’s for the great middle class – the 80 to 90 percent of us in this country.”

Well, at the very least we know he’s against identifying with the poors. Gotta hang on to a little of your class! [CBS News]

      thanks for that flashback to the 80s, reminds me how much I hated the Reagan years (and the Bush years, and the Shrub years)

  • V572 Moon!

    Well's here's an interesting topic. Where are the class boundaries in America? I propose this for a family of 3:

    Annual income < $40,000 = lower class
    $40,001 < annual income < $200,000 = middle class
    Annual income > $200,000/year = upper class
    Mitt-Romney-level-income = ruling class


    • rahelio

      I would more or less agree except that I think "upper class" has a higher cut off. Mittens definitely has "ruling class" money but there are wealthy people, celebs/all-star athletes etc of the world who make millions but don't rule over anything.

    • Not_So_Much

      Mitt Romney = clueless douchecanoe

      Sorry, apparently I'm as bad at math as he is.

    • Rotundo_

      Yep, I know a lot of folks in the bottom ranks and golly gee I never even imagined that Mittens qualified as middle class. Maybe the republican statistical method is skewed a bit on the high side or something. But he looks like he would wear a suit of armor mowing the lawn or raking up dog poop. It would be funny or possibly even dangerous if he were to get around power tools. I see him more as the guy in the golfcart and not the guy on the John Deere rider. I see him as the guy riding the Arabian stallion and not the guy mucking out the stable. I see him being driven, but not driving (yeah I know about the dog and diarrhea episode, but that was before the cash started seriously rolling in). He may even take a commercial flight now and then, but I don't see him flying coach. If he goes hunting it's a"guided hunt" where the guide kicks the pheasant or grouse in the ass to flush it so you don't have to shoot a quivering tame bird on the ground. He goes to football games *with* the team owner. etc ad infinitum. His shit, most likely does not stink.

      • Fare la Volpe

        It still stinks; his toilet water is just scented.

    • Callyson

      Mitt-Romney-level-income = no class.
      Oh, you were referring to money, not character? In that case…
      Mitt-Romney-level-income = filthy rich.

    • not that Dewey

      One of Ken Layne's "WE'RE ALL DOOMED" posts cited a study that showed that a Typical American Family making $68k/yr is essentially treading water, living paycheck-to-paycheck. Is that Middle Class?

      • MOG2410

        Yes, complete with flotation device.

  • JackObin

    The fool don't drink. That precludes him from being "one of them". Unless by "one of them" you mean a monumental bore.

    • SayItWithWookies

      And the sober bores are far worse than the drunk bores. The sober bores trying to pretend they're just like everyone else are completely insufferable.

    • anniegetyerfun

      I thought it was supposed to be his dad. Why pay that much to have something done that is going to make you look 80 years old?

  • Next he'll say he's also an African-American on death row.

    Sorry for the OT, waiting to hear where Davis' reprieve goes.

    • V572 T-Blow

      Got a delay, Tweetie's saying. He's all Troy Davis all the time tonight. Not a fan of human sacrifice, I guess. Certainly keeping a guy on death row for 23 years is pretty cool torture do. "We're gonna kill ya, Troy, this time for sure." "Oh wait, just kidding!"

      • And waiting until the last minute isn't considered a form of cruelty by civilized countries. It's similar to firing squads shooting blanks in my mind.

        • I think this is the part that had me truly enraged earlier. Keeping a person and his family and even the victim's family on edge for so long (whether the victim's family will actually achieve any sort of peace from the execution is a whole other debate), to the point where his execution has already been scheduled three times, strikes me as cruel and unusual.

          Not only that, the state just set this date two weeks ago, which forced his lawyers to really scramble to appeal for clemency. All the sudden media attention and pressure, to my mind, poisons the deliberative process for the Supreme Court, or the Georgia Parole Board, or whomever. It seems like an awful lot of fuckery when you are talking about killing someone.

      • PuckStopsHere

        SCOTUS just gave Davis the thumbs down. He'll be dead within the hr.

    • fuflans

      and you know fucking alito was SERIOUSLY pissed that he had to give up his dinner for this crap.

      • flamingpdog

        I'm pretty sure killing people makes up for dinner in Alito's case.

    • not that Dewey

      They killed him.

      At 11:08 pm Wednesday, the state of Georgia killed Troy Davis. Just before
      he was executed, Troy maintained his innocence, urged people to dig deeper
      into the case to find the truth, and said "For those about to take my
      life, may God have mercy on your souls, may God bless your souls." It's a
      tragic day for Troy, for his family, and for equality, fairness, and

      Really fuckin sucks. Who are these sociopaths that serve on Parole boards? Is there a problem with self-selection, or would it be worthwhile for some humane liberals to try to get seated on these boards? Hoping that Courts will overturn sentences is clearly not working out.

    Middle Class, my fucking ass!, that's just code for "I've found a way to tax shelter all of my money", so actually, I deserve earned income credit & goverment cheese, and a 3.2 billion tax refund like GE got. I may even qualify for food stamps, for my servents!

  • MiniMencken

    Yes, nothing says middle class like a 3,000 square foot beach house worth 12 million dollars — that's just too small for the family.

    • emmelemm

      And the food bills! Even $200,000 a year can't cover them!!!!

      • Not_So_Much

        Well, in his defense his family is all Mormon — so there's probably about 117 of them for a quiet dinner.

    • Sparky_McGruff

      Not snark: I think he means it when he says that he's middle class. Because when he's at his multi-million dollar estate, he's surrounded by people who make as much or more than he does. Those are the people who register in his mind. The waiter that brings his lunch, the delivery guy, the woman who cleans his toilet — they're not really people in his mind.

      The only people that he thinks of as real are those in his circle. The ones that own the mansions in his neighborhood, the people on the board of directors. And he's not at the top of that heap, so he thinks he's right there in the middle.

  • jjdaddyo

    Is he going to get up in front of the NAACP and say that he's a "person of color" too? I know Boehner could get away with that, but…

  • Goonemeritus

    Yup rich real rich is that guy that has more than you, all the rest of us are middle class. I know how Mitt feels. You should have seen this rich bastard I ran into at the bridge I normally sleep under. He was lording the fact that he doesn’t drink cleaning product and he buys his Hobo beans at Whole Foods. Fucking elitist.

    • glamourdammerung

      I think the fact none of these pundits have called on Netanyahu to stop trying to bust President Obama's balls, influence American elections, and generally keep biting the hand that allows it to exist sums up the main problem with American-Israeli relations.

    • MonsterAGoGo

      Remember, the pyschofuck jesusmongers like Ricky believe that when Israel rebuilds some temple, Jeebus will come back and the Apocalupse can begin. They don't give a shit about Israel except as a religious stepping stone.

      Well, it's not much different than a senior citizen building a big-ass boat that single-handedly saved the world's flora and fauna, or an elderly man going up atop a smoking mountain and receiving some stones with some shit all magically etched on them.

      My only real problem with Mormonism is that it takes all of this shit literally and fundamentally and then adds on even more ridiculous shit that they have to take literally to be in the faith. That's really the only problem with it; it's a particularly literalist take and addition to Christianity, which is itself very hard to swallow if you take it literally.

    • Jukesgrrl

      And he believes Eden was in Missouri. I rest your case.

        And Joseph Smith "sought" "Eden" because he was fleeing an arrest warrant for bank fraud.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      I'm convinced 1/2 of Mormon men (possibly Mitt, too) don't believe in any of that shit. They just got sucked in by some hot Mormon chick and were willing to make some compromises to bone that thing. Even guys like Mitt, who were born into all that shit, and were ostensibly smart enough to have their doubts.

      I've been to the Mormon tabernacle (when I was in my 20's), I've taken the tour. And my tourguide was female and, how can I put this? Really, no other words fit.

      • BlueStateLibel

        Looks like it. And I doubt the two women ever did anything but look at the food.

  • OK Mittens, because you're one of us I'm moving into your neighborhood. I’m putting up some of those plywood cutouts of fat ladies bending over in the garden, the house will be painted pink, I'll drive really old rusty American made cars that I will park in the street over night, I'm shopping for a lamp shaped like a woman’s leg in fishnets that I will place in the window which I will always leave open as I walk around the house in my way too skimpy underwear.

    What is a picture of Farrah Fawcett doing on his deck?

    BTW, another poll released today in Michigan shows Romney whipping Perry's ass, here, 34 to 13 or something ridiculous like that. It's bittersweet, because it's Romney we're talking about, but even Michigan Republicans aren't exactly enamored with people fucking cheering execution as if it was some Roman blood sport.

    • horsedreamer_1

      Romney up in early primary state Michigan. Even with Goodhair in Florida.

      And Chris Christie already plotting his time as flavor of the month.

      Yup. Mitt will be last one standing.

  • ttommyunger

    In the first place, your name is fucking "Mitt". Who is named Mitt? NO MIDDLE CLASS MOTHERFUCKER HAS EVER BEEN NAMED MITT. Second; you have some weird religion with racist and polygamous roots, which haven't quite disappeared yet. Third, you are a thin-skinned asshole. Fourth: I know this sounds impossible; but you are actually whiter than Newt Fucking Gingrich. Other than that, I'd vote for you….NOT!

    • Fare la Volpe

      Don't forget that his parents weren't natural born citizens. I have yet to see a birth certificate.

      • ttommyunger

        I'm not sure he was born. Assembled, maybe. He is one stiff, scriped, plastic, unreal mammyjammer.

        • flamingpdog

          I think some village is missing its idiot Transformer™

  • Negropolis

    Well, there you go. The Supremes have denied a stay. Barbaric.

    • KeepFnThatChicken

      No more indignation in prison for him. The very least we could offer, I s'pose. :(

      • Negropolis

        No, just more indignation for the hundreds of others on death row. That's the problem with this; it's just a factory. There are more waiting to be killed on the way.

  • Is Mitt suggesting that 10-20% of Americans make over $100M a year???

    • Radiotherapy┬«

      i think he's suggesting that 80-90% of Americans make $100M a year. Because he would never apologize for America — the last great white hope for mankind.

  • OT but congrats to those bloodthirsty shitheads on the Supreme Court, who must have figured that since they stayed an execution last week, staying another one tonight would set a bad precedent. Next thing you know, everyone who may have been wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death will want to live, and we can't have that. Plus, you know, Texas executed a white guy today, so hooray justice, it really is colorblind!

    If anyone needs me I'll be drunk.

    • rocktonsam

      why are you surprised? he is black, he was convicted of killing a cop, he IS black, in the south and he is black.

      at least FOX NEWS had the good sense not to talk about this story tonight.


    • ProgressiveInga

      Yeah, and bloviator Ed Schultz is saying that this is the case that is going to change American's minds about the death penalty. No justice. No peas.

    • Negropolis

      The really shitty part is that they dragged out the process for hours. Some were saying that it may have been simple logistics, but I call bullshit.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      The thing that shocks me the most about this whole Troy Davis travesty is that it didn't happen down here in Texas.

      • Negropolis

        If he'd have been in Texas, we'd have never heard about him, and he'd have been executed years ago, which is kind of amazing given that Georgia isn't exactly a liberal state.

    • glamourdammerung

      At least Clarence Thomas finally got to fulfill his dream of murdering a black man.

  • zappadoo76

    Class traitor!

  • "“It’s not those in the low end"

    What a FUCKING ASSHOLE. He has absolutely no conception of what poverty is. The puggers seem to think teh poorz are whooping it up with champagne and bon bons in 5 star hotel penthouse suites on their minimum wage paychecks (they pay no income tax! boo hoo hoo, wah wah wah) .

  • flamingpdog

    What the frick is it with the fingers on his left hand?1? I have to force my fingers to sit like that, and they hurt when I do. He must have to have his dildoes custom-grooved, or use his right hand only.

    Even if nobody needs me, I'll be drunk.

  • Schmegeg

    I need a guy for my bowling team, Mitt. And bring a couple of your wives.

  • BarackMyWorld

    He's unemployed. He's middle class.
    Is he also Spartacus?

  • El Pinche

    Willard is a middle-class teabagger now ??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA . What's next? He's black?? Oh wait.

  • Tyrant

    Middle-class? Wow, that's rich.

  • bflrtsplk

    Middle class? Sorry Mitt, you got no class. Hmph,

  • zhubajie

    Why does this Marduke of Moronic Mormonism want to run the country, anyway?

  • James Michael Curley

    I'm organizing the Million Millionaire's March (MMM) on Washington for the weekend to get a permanent reduction of our onerous 10% tax rate. Send me the price of one share of a DOW component stock (MMM for example) and I will provide a map showing the route and the location of the Port-A-Johns with the cleanest seats.

    Insufferable pandering asshole is a pandering asshole. (And insufferable).

  • Negropolis

    So, the media is reporting that there are still about 200 folks down at "Occupy Wall Street." I'm actually pleasantly surprised. I'd thought they'd have all lost their will by Sunday (the second day). I just read some article where some hippy chick said she moved out of her apartment because she was so inspired by the movement, bless her heart. Hey, they're just livin' what we'll all be living soon enough…

    Kind of sad to think Israel got 200,000+ people during their economic days of rage a couple a months back. Surprisingly, their complaint was one that'd have sounded pretty good in NYC: The rent is too damn high.

  • Terry

    Yes, because all middle class families are currently quadrupling the size of their beach houses in La Jolla, California.

  • bebecca2298

    and he took his dog on vacation–in a crate strapped to the top of the family vehicle, probably a minivan or station wagon, just like the rest of us middle classians….

  • KeepFnThatChicken

    Yes, honey, you can be in the painting too… as long as you're near my dick.

    • Negropolis

      Just as the good lord intended. Look it up; it's in the Bible…and probably the Mormon one, too.

  • KeepFnThatChicken

    "I'm not a rich. I'm you."

  • mumbly_joe

    New Mittens ad:

    "I'm not a member of the richest 10% of this country; I'm you."

  • Rosie_Scenario

    I hope he didn't pay much for that painting. Not a good likeness and the "seascape" behind his head is bad and the picture of wife-y on desk is hokey.

    • fletc3her

      That's a painting?!

  • not that Dewey

    Where I live (not Dallas), I got 2,000 sq ft for $150k, and I'm sitting right in Ken Layne's "sweet spot", income-wise. Now that I quit drinking, I have about $200 left over every month. I hope those medical emergencies are cheap!

    A couple years back I met a "wealth manager" at a hotel where he and I had coincident conferences. I asked him "what would you tell a guy my age who's got a wife, a young kid and $14,000 in a retirement account?" His reply: "I'd say you're fucked."

  • DaRooster

    "Obama economy"?!?!

    Fuck you you piece of shit!! It is purely a Republican thing!! Thanks to you fucking Reagan zombie fucking douche bags

  • benjo765

    he sure is one classy rich lying weirdo

  • GeorgiaBurning

    Mitt is taking this class warfare stuff seriously, got space for him at the barricade? Maybe under it?

  • BZ1

    Miit and Joe the Plumber, here's the GOP dream team of delusionals, middle class, indeed …

  • fletc3her

    Mittens assumes everyone he sees through his limo windows is an illegal immigrant. No American would condescend to live in a suburb. All those split level homes must be filled with migrant workers. After all, real Americans, we 80-90% upper class Republican voters all split our time between our homes in Aspen, Palm Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Jackson Hole, and Martha's Vineyard. Remember, friends don't let friends fly commercial.
