We’re All Getting Rich On Mitt Romney’s First Day, Video Says

by Jim Newell

ALT TEXT IS ON THE PICTURE K?Well tut tut, a Friday news dump: Mitt Romney’s first general election ad! Since it’s an official ad, it’s nice and sunny and banal, unlike the “HOW MANY FOUNDING FATHERS DID OBAMA RAPE TODAY?” ones that his forty Super PACs will be running nonstop. It’s about Mitt Romney’s first day. What will happen? It will be sunny and tractors will cut wheat. A man will open a door in front of his Small Business. Each American will get five Keystone pipelines. Romney will “issue order to begin” fixing the health care system by eliminating the health care system and replacing it with tax cuts. Savvy young tech whizzes will play on the computer. Mitt Romney will give a speech before a joint session of Congress, on Day 1. A black lady in a business suit will fold her arms and smile because of Mitt Romney. He will stand next to a black man for two seconds for the cameras. Also too, Reforms. Then he’ll jump off a cliff, in despair, maybe. The years 2013-2017 will be “good for America,” hehe, hoo boy.

UPDATE: He will also shake a black lady’s hand for half a second; we missed this part. That’s three, quota met!

Herbert Hoover libel!

Steverino247 May 18, 2012 at 5:27 pm

And every man in American will get a blow job with no concern about where he ejaculates because Romney is President.

Every woman will have oral sex she will never forget (see blowjobs above…).

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 5:35 pm

It's hard to forget being forced to give a blow job, which will be legal in Romney's America, just like it was under the Founders! After all, there is nothing in the Constitution that allows Congress to regulate blow jobs!

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 18, 2012 at 9:19 pm

Although, apparently, the Founders' failure to specifically mention sodomy mean it's not a right.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 11:07 pm

Don't tell Ben Franklin that.

HistoriBarb May 19, 2012 at 3:05 pm

I now see "early to bed early to rise" in a new light …

Negropolis May 18, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I think it's somewhere in the commerce clause, especially if you're sucked off across state lines.

SorosBot May 18, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Are you kidding? Mitt will make sure to get Supreme Court justices who will overrule Lawrence v Texas, thus allowing the return of making the the blowjobs, pussy-licking and buttsex illegal.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Yes, but only when it involves a couple of dudes. Women won't have standing to challenge what ever a good many, in his own enlighten self interest, forces them to do. Have you even read the Constitution?

Ann_ObeyMe_Money May 18, 2012 at 9:20 pm

You're right, since it doesn't mention WOMEN, I guess it doesn't apply to them.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 11:08 pm

Women are extra-Constitutional.

sullivanst May 18, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Every woman will have oral sex she will never forget

No matter how much she tries. See how Romney will create jerbs in the liquor distillery and retail sectors!

mormos May 18, 2012 at 6:06 pm

There will be infinity jobs, brown people will turn into white people, women will learn their place, vaginas will be illegal and penises will have a national holiday, everyone will have magic underwear, we’ll eat gold plated oatmeal and shit rainbows, their will be peace in the middle east, Ronald Reagan will descend from heaven with Mormon Jesus to shake Mitt’s hand, god will have an orgy with his many wives, there will be many wives for all white males, the rich will get richer and the poor will like it, and most important –

FREEDUM

BECAUSE AMERICA

Doktor StrangeZoom May 18, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Actually, none of this will happen, because Bristol Palin's ghostwriter will have banned all the oral-pleasuring books. And then the acts, too, because they are non-procreative.

God, you filthy liberals, always thinking about the sex. The hot, sweaty, pulsating, throbbing sex.

Steverino247 May 18, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Ha! This, from a guy worried about his "essence?"

anniegetyerfun May 18, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Tech whizzes do stuff on computers now, but it's mostly masturbating. Will Mitt Romney outlaw masturbating? Probably.

Wile E. Quixote May 18, 2012 at 6:26 pm

If he does he can kiss the Utah vote goodbye.

outragedcitizen May 19, 2012 at 10:43 am

Well, Vice President Santorum will for sure outlaw masturbation.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:22 am

If masturbation is outlawed, only outlaws will masturbate.

anniegetyerfun May 18, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Also, too, there's no way that the black dude he stands next to isn't a bodyguard.

coolhandnuke May 18, 2012 at 5:31 pm

And on that fictional day, I will strap the nearest Republican cur to the roof of my car, throw a dart at a globe, and head there.

Mumbletypeg May 18, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I must've blinked when Mitts shook the blah lady's hand? Then I flinched when there appeared to be a Paul Ryan clone complete with Eddie Munster brows around the :18 mark.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 5:33 pm

So, on Mitt's first day in office, they will be cutting wheat. Does this mean he doesn't plan to take office until August, 2013, or he is planning a coup for this August/September?

Geminisunmars May 18, 2012 at 5:45 pm

He will be annexing South America and/or Australia that first day.

flamingpdog May 18, 2012 at 5:47 pm

It will be a very warm, sunny day in January before Romney is elected (note: bad joke only applies to snowy regions).

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:24 am

There will be very warm, sunny days in January after Romney is elected.

flamingpdog May 18, 2012 at 5:48 pm

More reason for the Rethugs to run Ron Paul for Preznit so we can have pot in every chicken(hawk).

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 5:33 pm

On Mitt's first day, he will take the country into bankruptcy, send out pink slips to everyone, and move all the viable assets into his overseas accounts.

flamingpdog May 18, 2012 at 5:49 pm

And tear down the White House so he can build another one four times its size.

Also saves on fumigation costs.

Generation[redacted] May 18, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Does our current White House have a car elevator? No? That settles it, I'm for Mitt (elevator doors close)

V572 Is this him? May 18, 2012 at 5:40 pm

No, wait, that was Chimpy. Mitt will order up multiple Power Points outlining the pros and cons of various "courses of action."

Nopantsmcgee May 18, 2012 at 5:49 pm

Loosen the waistband of his chastity shorts?

GeneralLerong May 18, 2012 at 5:50 pm

Cut some brush?

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Is that an euphemism for masturbation? If so, are Mormons allowed to do that?

GeneralLerong May 19, 2012 at 1:02 am

Only if thinking about the opposite sex.

Same sex, ya gotta turn it off like a light switch.

Animals…maybe? Something about whether the hoof is cloven or not? Or is that some other religious book?

sullivanst May 18, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Manual labor?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahaha!

Chichikovovich May 18, 2012 at 6:34 pm

As soon as he's officially sworn in he'll hire a bunch of undocumented workers to cut brush. "I'm no longer running for President, for Pete's sake."

sullivanst May 18, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Well played, comrade. I was gonna try for that angle, but laughing was easier and that seemed more important at the time. My brain is addled from being in the middle of a very long list of extremely tedious code changes.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:28 am

Nopantsmcgee May 18, 2012 at 5:34 pm

"A car in every garage and a dog on every car."

SorosBot May 18, 2012 at 5:34 pm

Well that's specific and totally not generic and meaningless.

flamingpdog May 18, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Well, I was with you until you said "and meaningless".

bumfug May 18, 2012 at 5:35 pm

"A man will open a door in front of his Small Business…"
You left out "so the sheriff can help the guys from Bain Capital clear out the furniture and machinery they sold to pay their management fees."

V572 Is this him? May 18, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Perfect.

MadBrahms May 18, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Forget the money for nothing. Call me when there's a candidate who promises chicks for free.

iburl May 18, 2012 at 5:35 pm

Mitt knew that FLOTUS and Barack Obama Sr. were up to no good…

"LDS Apostle Mark E. Petersen said in 1954: "I think I have read enough to give you an idea of what the Negro is after. He is not just seeking the opportunity of sitting down in a cafe where white people eat. He isn't just trying to ride on the same streetcar or the same Pullman car with white people. It isn't that he just desires to go to the same theater as the white people. From this, and other interviews I have read, it appears that the Negro seeks absorption with the white race. He will not be satisfied until he achieves it by intermarriage. That is his objective and we must face it.""

V572 Is this him? May 18, 2012 at 5:42 pm

Good thing we got rid of those streetcars and Pullman cars (each w/a blah porter) so the Negro can't ride with us.

Chet Kincaid May 18, 2012 at 6:39 pm

LDS Apostle Mark E. Petersen misinterpreted the Negroes who were shouting at him, "fuck you and your wives!!"

What does FLOTUS have to do with this, btw?

Chichikovovich May 18, 2012 at 9:17 pm

He was wrong, of course. What the Negro really wanted was to become President, so that some Mormon follower of the teachings of LDS Apostle Mark E. Petersen could be nominated as his opponent, whereupon the Negro could kick the Mormon's ass.

Negropolis May 18, 2012 at 10:58 pm

These were some fucking sick people.

Yes, black people wanted to be treated as humans just so they could become white. They hated themselves that much that they wanted to mix themselves out of existence. Those whole Black Power and Black is Beautiful movements? Yeah, just for show.

Project much? I'd never read that, and the reaction I had to it is visceral.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:39 am

The thinly-coded message was pretty clear: "They want our wimmenz!"

sbj1964 May 18, 2012 at 5:38 pm

If BattleStar Galactica has taught us anything Mitt Romeny is a Cylon.

Guppy May 18, 2012 at 6:34 pm

He's nowhere near good enough at impersonating a human to be a toaster.

SorosBot May 18, 2012 at 5:39 pm

My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball. But tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!

All these years later, it's still funny and relevant.

Fairtackle May 18, 2012 at 6:03 pm

Sad how accurate this is.

Negropolis May 18, 2012 at 11:01 pm

Don't blame me; I voted for Kodos Obama.

Serolf_Divad May 18, 2012 at 5:40 pm

I've got to wonder: will Romney's "common sense" health care reforms look anything like the "common sense" health care reforms he instituted in in Massachussets? 'cause that would be funny.

Lionel[redacted]Esq May 18, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Or, for that matter, the common sense health care reform championed by Republicans and the Heritage Foundation, at least until a black guy was in favor of it.

ManchuCandidate May 18, 2012 at 5:41 pm

It would look a lot like the eight years of the idiot W admin minus the surplus but with extra obliviousness and pandering to morans.

SmutBoffin May 18, 2012 at 5:44 pm

…and an extra helping of domestic violence and bigotry!

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:41 am

EXTRA obliviousness and pandering to morans? Is that even possible?

johnnyzhivago May 18, 2012 at 5:41 pm

An Austrian Warmblood in every stable; two Cadillacs in every vacation home.

SmutBoffin May 18, 2012 at 5:41 pm

It's reassuring to know that when Romney is elected there will still be American flags covering fucking everything, everywhere.

Wile E. Quixote May 18, 2012 at 6:28 pm

Including the coffins being flown into Dover AFB from the exciting new war with Iran that Romney wants to start.

flamingpdog May 18, 2012 at 5:42 pm

I only counted 28 American flags in the whole 30 seconds. I wanna see Mitt's birf certificate!!!

It seems, not surprisingly, that America is confused again, Americans won't become rich when Rmoney is elected president; Rmoney's friends will become even more rich. Sigh most of the poors who vote for these guys live under the constantly promoted delusion that they will be rich someday and they don't want to pay their fortunes to the government to feed lazy blah people.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:46 am

The rich are getting richer, in a no-growth economy — how hard can it be to figure out where the money is coming from?

Unemployment will plummet to 0.3% and everyone will get a 15% raise the day after Romney's inauguration, because of certainty and whatnot.

Serolf_Divad May 18, 2012 at 5:49 pm

So the camera switches to the image of a smiling black woman when the announcer says the phrase "job creators." That's nice. I wonder how long she worked at Bain Capital… or was it Goldman Sachs, in her case?

Biel_ze_Bubba May 21, 2012 at 5:47 am

Fairtackle May 18, 2012 at 6:05 pm

The attractive black lady in the business suit folding her arms looks so relaxed and confident, I am pretty sure she thought she was doing a Summer's Eve commercial.

SorosBot May 18, 2012 at 6:32 pm

I kind of suspect she, and many of the other actors in this ad, were actually just filming stock footage.

Fairtackle May 18, 2012 at 6:43 pm

hmmm, which might make the ad seem sort of nonspecific, generic and well, meaningless.

Doktor StrangeZoom May 18, 2012 at 11:02 pm

This won't go well for Mitt. I happen to know that Woman Picking Out Fruit In Supermarket and Scientist Looking At Line Graph are both supporting Al Franken

Callyson May 18, 2012 at 10:58 pm

That smug look in her eyes…

I so want this woman to come out when this ad is in heavy rotation and say that after looking more closely at the candidates, she will be voting for Obama after all…

OT, but when Ann Romney goes off the campaign trail to play with her "Austrian Warmblood", you don't suppose she's actually referring to Arnold Schwarzenegger???

Doktor StrangeZoom May 18, 2012 at 6:15 pm

OT, but too good to leave on the older thread about the idiot AZ SecState who wants to leave Obama off the ballot (because who reads the hours-old threads?):

From the TPM story:

In the weeks since then, Bennett said, Hawaii officials have forced him to provide proof that he is who he says he is. They asked him to send them copies of the Arizona laws that prove the secretary of state really is the person in charge of handling the ballots.

Talk about your buried lede! The headline here should be:

TROLLS TROLLED: HAWAII BUREAUCRATS PUNK BIRTHER IDIOTS

With the sub-head: "You're the Arizona Secretary of What, Now?

Whoever in the Hawaii department of vital records is doing this, I want to hug and maybe gay-marry.

Wile E. Quixote May 18, 2012 at 6:31 pm

I hope they keep it up. The next thing they should do is ask for proof that Arizona is actually part of the United States. Oh, and they should demand long-form birth certificates for him, Jan Brewer and every Republican in the Arizona legislature.

horsedreamer_1 May 18, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Didn't Obama win Hawai'i with 72% of the vote? They are insanely proud that the Aloha State, the youngest state, has produced a President. & fuck those turds in Arizona better not step to it.

elfgoldsackring May 18, 2012 at 9:26 pm

"Oh, you're right beside New Mexico? Lemme guess, you also border South Canada and West Timberland. Go waste someone else's time, kiddo." Click!

JustPixelz May 19, 2012 at 7:31 am

I'm glad they're careful about who they send those vital records to because of identity theft. It has the added frisson of making an AZ asshat squirm. But mostly I wonder if Panama-born John McCain had this trouble getting on the ballot in 2008.

BZ1 May 18, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Common-sense healthcare reform? Romneycare anyone?

weejee May 18, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Likely be a good idea for Wonketteers to do a little hedging and invest in lightly-salted rat dick futures, as starting on Mittens' first day in office vast quantities of same will be heading out to all parts of the country.

Fukui-sanRadioBarb May 18, 2012 at 6:26 pm

As BZ1 says above – repeal the ACA and replace it with …. meaningless pablum? "Common sense", like any cunt in congress has any of that.

And, honestly, more fucking tax cuts? I think we tried that shit before.

In other words, we will immediately poison the environment and your drinking water and if you aren't rich enough to have very expensive medical insurance, prepare to die.

I'm putting onions on my belt in anticipation of these good days ahead.

Day 2:
Romney discovers that Transcanada won't pick the exact route of the XL pipeline they prefer until they find how much they receive from what states in terms of property tax credits and the right to declare imminent domain, and indicates that concerns of pipeline overcapacity may lead them to export their tar sands directly to Asia by way of Vancouver. Thousands of jobs not created.

The CBO scores Romney's tax cuts and reforms, announcing they will accelerate the deficit. Job creators belatedly realize they forgot to create consumers who can actually afford to buy the goods that create the jobs.

Employees are told their Medicare contribution will increase to pay for transition to common sense plan to turn it in to a privatized voucher system, which will unfortunately only pay for about a third of the average retiree's medical expenses. Coverage denied.

Jeez Doc, that wasn't funny at all.

Keystone is an export pipeline as anyone can find out if they read the fucking SEC documents. People don't. That gas is being sold to China, mostly.

"imminent domain" sounds like a rather tasty sex move.

What would a Romney preznitcy be like? Boring, stupid, dull and doomed.

Immediate goals for a Republican president:

* Destroy the environment….CHECK!

* Destroy the economy…CHECK!

* Destroy healthcare insurance for poor people…CHECK!

It's great to see a little honesty in a politician. Fuck that "compassionate conservatism" bullshit.

The harping on Keystone XL is such an incredibly strange Republican touchstone. Even in their propoganda, it only creates a few thousand construction jobs, and the actual truth is something much less coupled with the fact that it does not even begin to address our energy needs and reforms.

Of all the stuff they could bitch about, Keystone seems like the oddest one of the bunch. I can't imagine the actual sane, suburban Republicans (what's left of them, anyway) look at this and it makes them angry. This is an issue where I think the GOP is wildly out of touch even with their own base. Even the most oil-loving conservatives knows that building a pipeline to basically ship oil to China not only doesn't address our domestic energy issues, but they also realize that Americans are increasingly widening their horizons about our energy needs. The whole "oil-only" approach is a complete minority opinion, now.

ALL HAIL THE JERB CREATORS. Either get on your knees or bend over to demonstrate your full and complete adoration of them.

"A black lady in a business suit will fold her arms and smile because of Mitt Romney. "

Amazingly, the same lady did the exact same folding of her arms in an ad for Citi… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAFKfAPo59Y&t=

valthemus May 19, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Romney honestly thinks he can convince me that he has anything but utter contempt for blacks and the working class? Clearly he's trying to secure the self-deluded shitbag vote.

We may see this also on his first day
