Mitt Romney Ad Magically Turns McCain Advisor’s Words Into Obama’s

by Kaia Mursi

The quantum of total emptiness sashaying about in a flesh suit and calling itself “Mitt Romney” just cannot catch a break, in the polls! Mitt wants this presidency thing so very badly, you can practically taste the flopsweat. (Look for low notes of malted milk and Brylcreem in this year’s vintage.) Here is Mittens’ latest campaign ad, where he plays the role of a humanoid who “believes in America,” unlike confirmed socialist Muslin Barack Obama, who in the beginning of the video just cold admits that “if we keep talking about the economy, we lose!” Boy, that dude would have to be EMPTY IN THE HEAD to say that! Just straight up flashing a big ROOM AVAILABLE sign across the noggin’, right?

Or maybe instead Mitt’s ad deceptively shows Obama quoting one of John McCain’s doomed flunkies circa 2008, who at the time wisely advised WALNUTS! to ix-nay on the “fundamentals are strong” nonsense, seeing as how the economy was then transitioning into hospice care. Now, you could turn your computer upside down to read the answer, or you could just use the good sense Mama gave you and assume that Mitt Romney fucked up, again, as always. What do you know, right again! This guy needs more Reagan in his life.

But the Rethuglicans don't care if they're lying and mis-quoting and taking things out of context. They don't care if they're caught at it.

They do and say things knowing they'll have to issue a (wink-wink) retraction. And then their retraction is the "I'm sorry if you were offended" kind.

This is the legacy of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove, and was first used in Nixon's "Southern Strategy" of 1968.

As my right-wing brother plaintively wailed after I refuted yet another idiotic WND-ish e-mail he forwarded to me, "Well, maybe that didn't really happen, but I could imagine it being true."

GOP-Land: where dreams come true. Or imaginings could be true, so they are. As such.

Chichikovovich November 22, 2011 at 10:27 am

Yeah, a great example of that was posted here a couple of weeks ago when one of the mini-O'Keefe's had "gone undercover" and kept trying to egg some OWS people on to break into a museum. They consistently told him that this was a stupid idea, so he broke in himself. Then he used the break-in as a reason to dump on OWS. His line of "thinking" seemed to be "A museum has been broken into, and since I'm obviously not the kind of person to break into museums [though I did, in fact, break into a museum], but you smelly moochers are obviously the kind of people who break into museums [though in fact you didn't break into any museums] so you are responsible for this outrage!"

And besides, William McKinley probably said it before Herbert Hoover said it before Jimmy Carter said it before John McCain said it.

This is good news for John McCain!

Eh, it would be if he could remember his '08 campaign.

I think he sits around grumbling that he's still alive in what would be more than halfway through his first term, where according to Sarah if they were so blessed to lead the country, would have balanced the budget by now.

"If your idea of confronting me is that I don't ask hard-hitting enough news questions, we're in bad shape fellas" Stewart on Crossfire – As true then as it is now. We have to rely on a Comedian to do the job of journalists because half are bought-and-paid for subsidiaries of the Republican party and the other half are more likely to focus on what Romney had for breakfast than whether his OFFICIAL campaign ads are total bunkum.

Chillwaver November 22, 2011 at 9:28 am

The fundamentals of Mittens' unelectability are strong.

Crowe2011 November 23, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Nah. The Media isn't interested in whether candidates are lying. They're concerned with polls about how Americans 'feel' about the economy.

Remember when Obama told us not to get involved in a land war in Asia, and to never trust a Sicilian when death is on the line?

memzilla November 22, 2011 at 9:31 am

And he told us never eat at a place called "Mom's."

Tundra Grifter November 22, 2011 at 9:57 am

And to never tie up with a woman who has more problems than you – which rules out both One-L Michele and Duh Gov'Nuh.

What? A deceptive campaign ad? Who was the genius who uncovered this?

ChessieNefercat November 22, 2011 at 9:56 am

Well, thinking people will always view any political ad with a bit of cynicism.

The problem is the close-together-eyed ones that believe any republican ad is nothing but straight up Jesus quotes from the bible, which makes it their christianist* duty to stick their fingers in their ears and go "nananananana" when someone points out the deception. And then (somehow) they find their way to the voting booth.

*christianist as opposed to actual feed the hungry, love one another, etc. Christians.

Make people think, and they will hate you. Make them say, "I knew I was right!" and they will vote for you.

That reminds me of the time that Barack Obama strapped the family dog to the roof of the Country Squire (the one with the 390 4-barrel and the wood-grain contact paper down the sides) when he took the family on vacation. What a cruel bastard! But then, Muslims don't like dogs, so what do you expect?

swordfis November 22, 2011 at 10:12 am

Gail Collins agrees.

He needed the dog up there to hold an antenna, so he could get get a broadband signal.

I really *do* want better broadband. Why shouldn't Obama?

Generation[redacted] November 22, 2011 at 10:50 am

Obama can't even remember 3 things without a teleprompter, and he couldn't decide if he was for or against helping the Libyan rebels.

And then puked on their Prime Minister.

johnnyzhivago November 22, 2011 at 9:35 am

Romney should just show that video of Obama in a flight suit with the "Mission Accomplished" sign.

This reminds me of the time that Obama said that Paul Revere went to warn the British, with the shooting, and the bells, and the pretty LAY-dees.

Why did Obama pepper-spray all those kids at UC Davis?

So, it's true Obama crucified Christ?

ChessieNefercat November 22, 2011 at 9:58 am

Now, let's not exaggerate. I think Obama was the guy that poked Him in the side with a spear.

BaldarTFlagass November 22, 2011 at 10:05 am

Or was he the guy that stole His robe?

BaldarTFlagass November 22, 2011 at 9:37 am

Still not as bad as the time that Barack advised John Lennon that it was perfectly safe to walk the streets of New York City. Or the time he told JFK that an open car parade in Dallas would be a great PR stunt, since everyone in that fair city loved him.

I'll never forgive Obama for telling Jim Henson, "it's probably just a cold."

bureaucrap November 22, 2011 at 9:38 am

It seems to me that if you're going to distort the truth that much, you may as well double down and just lie outright. "I have proof that the president and first lady have been sodomizing defenseless kittens and puppies for years, on a bed shaped like a crucifix, and the only reason the mainstream media don't report it is because he has paid them all off with the proceeds of his crack cocaine business." That's red meat to the Republican base.

ChessieNefercat November 22, 2011 at 9:59 am

"That's red meat to the Republican base."

That's scripture to the Republican base.

Mormons! They can't drink, they can't smoke, they can't cuss, but holy Moroni can they lie.

Monsieur_Grumpe November 22, 2011 at 9:48 am

I played in a band with a Mormon. We practiced for 2 years without pay. The whole time the Mormon’s family was trying to convince him that he was sinning by playing music and he should quit. His girlfriend’s family (Mormon of course) and his family got together and made up a story that his girlfriend was pregnant so he went home to marry her but found out it was a lie. They also had the bank call him about some debts. He stuck with us. We finally landed a good 6 months of contracts and went out on the road. After he got his first paycheck he hopped on a plane back to Utah without a word that he was quitting. There we were, 6 months of contracts and no lead singer. I hate Mormons.

weejee November 22, 2011 at 9:50 am

Boy that's a sour note.

kaiamursi November 22, 2011 at 9:55 am

So not ALL Mormons are bad, is what you're saying.

GregComlish November 22, 2011 at 9:57 am

I think the rule is more general: God allows you to lie to anybody less Mormon than yourself. So Mormons can lie to us, but Mormon parents can lie to their children, and Mormon church leaders can basically bullshit everyone

Biel_ze_Bubba November 23, 2011 at 1:50 am

And the angel Moroni … hmm … better not go there.

That's what Pam Geller says about Muslins. Do you have your M-Religions crossed?

Master Janitor V572 November 22, 2011 at 10:20 am

So J Willard Marriott and his tribe are devout Mormons, and the Mormon temple in suburban DC is on a Beltway site that would otherwise be a Marriott (or Courtyard or Springhill or one of their countless other brands) hotels, in any one of which you can buy all the booze you want. What's up with that? Does it mean that making money is more important than being observant? Or are they just hypocrites? Or both?

Yeah, since all three of those tax cuts by Bush for the job creators worked so well. . .Mitt desiring to progress those infallible commonsense time-tested truths will surely make America prosper again.

Chichikovovich November 22, 2011 at 10:50 am

Those tax cuts would have worked perfectly fine, except that Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd forced Fannie Mae to give away free money to anyone with diamond-studded gold teeth and at least three tattoos to buy themselves a "crib". That provoked the entire crisis, even the commercial lending crisis. Which is a pretty impressive feat, given that Fannie Mae doesn't even make loans themselves. But if it weren't for that damned Barney Frank, we'd all have our pick of a smorgasbord of high-paying jobs.

johnnymeatworth November 22, 2011 at 9:44 am

Mumbletypeg November 22, 2011 at 9:47 am

Mitt couldn't go wrong with just replaying that memorable footage of Obama serenading that audience full of cruise ship teatards; perhaps in the same blooper reel casually mentioning our president's tacky Gospel album with the exploding eagle on the cover.

Baconzgood November 22, 2011 at 9:52 am

I thought that was a Rorschach test.

This is a natural extension of Boss BlunderRush, Off-the-Mark Levin and the rest of their ilk translating for the rubes what leaders (say, Mr. Obama) "really said."

CapnFatback November 22, 2011 at 10:01 am

That's nothing, You should see the Romney ad where Obama is talking about that babysitter's sweet can.

Sue4466 November 22, 2011 at 10:01 am

According to the cynical shills wise pundits on MSNBC, this ad is fair because it's just "making a point."

And this is why we can't have nice things. We're too stupid and corrupt.

Tundra Grifter November 22, 2011 at 10:02 am

Great staff work! You'd think a sharp business person with, oh, six or seven YEARS to put together a Presidential campaign would have people on board who knew what they were doing.

Mr. Obama started from scratch and won his first time out with – what? – just over two years to organize it. I still have the newspaper article mentioning that the obscure Senator from Illinois was thinking about running.

PuckStopsHere November 22, 2011 at 10:04 am

Chichikovovich November 22, 2011 at 10:11 am

Mittens' people are saving the really dynamite stuff for closer to the election. Did you know that Obama was an active missionary for a religion that forbid blacks from attaining priesthood or full membership? Would allow black 12-year-olds to join their Boy Scout troops, but wouldn't allow them to be troop leaders? When Obama was seventeen, preparing to proselytize for that religion, one of their authorities (an "apostle") said:

"The reason that one would lose his blessings by marrying a negro is due to the restriction placed upon them. 'No person having the least particle of negro blood can hold the priesthood' (Brigham Young). It does not matter if they are one-sixth negro or one-hundred and sixth, the curse of no Priesthood is the same. If an individual who is entitled to the priesthood marries a negro, the Lord has decreed that only spirits who are not eligible for the priesthood will come to that marriage as children. To intermarry with a negro is to forfeit a 'nation of priesthood holders'…"

Obama's going to have a lot of explaining to do when they release this.

BaldarTFlagass November 22, 2011 at 10:25 am

Substitute "Jew" for "Negro", and it also defines membership in the Schutzstaffel (SS).

Biff November 22, 2011 at 10:30 am

Oh, that is SO 1978. Honest, they've changed! Just like in 1890 when they decided 1 wife was enough, in public, so Utah could become a state, maybe?

Chichikovovich November 22, 2011 at 11:05 am

In fact, I bet we're soon going to learn that there was just one thing and one thing alone that led Spencer Kimball and the other Elderberries (I may not have the lingo exactly right) to gather for the prayer that absolutely, no kidding, it really happened that way, led to God speaking directly to them in a revelation that changed their entire doctrine and had nothing whatsoever to do with the growing political embarrassment (and the fact that they were opening a monster huge temple in Saõ Paulo, where you'd be lucky if you could find a dozen people without at least some African ancestry somewhere along the family tree.)

And that one thing and one thing only was the tireless agitation of the late-twenties aged Mitt Romney, who was so committed to erasing this stain on his church that he agitated tirelessly behind the scenes. He was so committed to erasing from his Church the stain of the idea that God had cursed black people and loved them less that he never even gave a hint of this opposition to anyone besides the closed group of apostles. Indeed, to all outward appearances, he seemed completely OK with the policy, and happy to proselytize in its support. Romney did it in complete secrecy solely in order to be more effective. We all owe him a great debt.

sbj1964 November 22, 2011 at 10:15 am

Back in the 90's the Republicans were all warm,and Fuzzy. OK, that was the 1890's .

Allmighty_Manos November 22, 2011 at 10:17 am

Remember when Obama said he couldn't remember how many houses he had … or 'read my lips, no new taxes," or "we're going to need to bigger boat?" Or how about "Today Germany, tommorow the world."

prommie November 22, 2011 at 10:23 am

Remember that time he said "Luke, I am your father?"

Goonemeritus November 22, 2011 at 10:20 am

In fairness McCain and Obama are almost children separated at birth. Both are inspirational speakers who inspire our nation’s youth. Both have championed a level headed foreign policy that emprises restraint and negotiation even with our enemies. And lastly I believe both can play above the rim in a pickup game.

gurukalehuru November 22, 2011 at 10:22 am

Now, I am no expert on how to do funny things with the moving pictures on the intertubes, but I watched Willard's 30 seconds of speechifying above, and what I got was "We need to get rid of….America."

Bill_Mars November 22, 2011 at 10:23 am

Republicans don't want facts. They get everything they need from a picture bible, their 24 page Texas history textbook (white good, Reagan invented football, etc) and a laminated nude picture of Jesus.

All politicians are crooked bastards who deserve to be drawn and quartered but I would take special pleasure in starting with mitt. I've been grinding that axe ever since he was beamed down from the mothership into the governors office here in Boston way back when.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and make a prediction: In about three weeks or so, Obama will be the new GOP front-runner.

proudgrampa November 22, 2011 at 11:08 am

I would say that, with the centrification of Obama since 2008, he would make a pretty good traditional Republican candidate. But with the bunch of racist crackers running the GOP now? No way.

user-of-owls November 22, 2011 at 10:39 am

This ad is a pretty foolish tactical mistake on Romney's part since it will only bolster President Obama's name recognition.

Do you know who else thought a campaign should “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it”?

And that's why I'm voting for Mitt Romney! He always tells the absolute unvarnished truth, in a straight-talking, no nonsense way. So refreshing to see a modern Republican politician do it, for a change.

Never forget Mitt's ace in the hole: he's not near.

this is one of the most underhanded, Bull Shit ads, I have ever seen…and the election is over a year away…I knew Romney was an asshole, but now we have to add Lying Scumbag to his repertoire as well…
