Romney Camp To Take Up Breitbart’s Torch In Obama Vettening

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

knock knock, who's there, ghost andrew breitbart!Watch out, Barack Obama! You’re in for a good old-fashioned VETTENING!

“[Romney] has said Obama’s a nice fellow, he’s just in over his head,” [a Romney] adviser said. “But I think the governor himself believes this latest round of attacks that have impugned his integrity and accused him of being a felon go so far beyond that pale that he’s really disappointed. He believes it’s time to vet the president. He really hasn’t been vetted; McCain didn’t do it.”

Is it twue? Did Obama Hug A Black Guy? Romneyland will get to the bottom of it!

“I mean, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in Chicago, and was associated and worked with Rod Blagojevich to get Valerie Jarrett appointed to the Senate,” the adviser said.

Oh shit, the US Senator from a state “was associated and worked with” the governor of that state to pick his replacement? Impeachment just won’t do! Put him in the hoosegow! The other stuff — the drugs and the sweetheart deal — yeah, we honestly don’t care about that. Maybe their Fast & Furious stuff will have some traction though, here is hoping!

“[Obama's] policies have been such utter failures, the only thing he can do is to try to destroy a decent man and his wife,” the adviser said. “So he gets some hack political adviser from Chicago who has nothing to point to in her own life, and tells her to call [Romney] a felon… When did our politics get to that point? I mean, it’s Nixonian.”

When did our politics get to that point, unnamed Romney advisor? That is an excellent question! Was it when everybody said Bill Clinton murdered Vince Foster, or that Hillary was putting condoms and crack pipes on the White House Christmas tree? Was it then? Or was it all the way back in 1885, when the “Ma ma, where’s my pa?” chants went up about Grover Cleveland? Maybe it was then? Or was it just recently, when Joe Arpaio said Barack Obama was never born, because of codes? Or was it in that very sentence, when you sneered about Obama spox Stephanie Cutter “having nothing in her own life,” presumably because she is a sad, benighted spinster, with no husband and children to thaw her frozen womb and frozen loins?

But we think you guys might be forgetting the best attack of all. Don’t know if you heard? Shhhh. Barack Obama had two babies with a black chick.

He wasn't vetted?

Dude, we knew his fucking underwear size! Which is a lot more than we know, or even want to know, about Romney.

And it's that last clause that says why his ass is toast in November.

mookwrthwilson July 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

But Romney's underwear have magic powers!!!

actor212 July 18, 2012 at 10:34 am

Yes, magically, they stay on.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 11:10 am

No magic there – everybody wants them to stay on.

My wife would be happy to check Obama's…

Dr_Zoidberg July 18, 2012 at 11:27 am

Tell her to get in line behind me.

Chill_Bill July 18, 2012 at 10:32 am

"How dare you vetting me??? Vet the Black guy!"

ChrisM2011 July 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

I heard that Obama tied the Black Panthers to the top of his car during vacation. Scandalous!

actor212 July 18, 2012 at 10:35 am

All three of them?

ChrisM2011 July 18, 2012 at 10:36 am

And an ACORN.

LesBontemps July 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

Breitbart is still dead? That gladdens my heart.

el_donaldo July 18, 2012 at 10:51 am

And judging from the picture, his corpse is decomposing just fine.

LettucePrey July 18, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Not only is he dead, he's four months sober!

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:52 pm

For the first time in his life EVAH.

kittensdontlie July 18, 2012 at 1:34 pm

If he becomes undead soon, I can see "Romney & the Zombie 2012".

LesBontemps July 18, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Coming this fall to FOX TV, Romney & the Zombie: An awkward robot and an undead blogger travel the country in search of conservative brains and/or votes. Hilarity ensues.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Hilarity will ensue, alright. Let's have them start with Michele Blachmann!

kittensdontlie July 18, 2012 at 11:46 pm

Lawsuits might ensue–that sounds alot like the plot of Smokey and the Bandit…

actor212 July 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

Or was it all the way back in 1885, when the “Ma ma, where’s my pa?” chants went up about Grover Cleveland? Maybe it was then?

Try 1860 years before that.

I take no account of the edicts of Bibulus, in which he posted his colleague as "the queen of Bithyllia," saying that " of yore he was enamoured of a king, but now of a king's estate."

doloras July 18, 2012 at 6:07 pm

The "Julius Caesar is a big homo" meme survived his death as a political weapon, when Mark Antony got up in the Senate and said that Octavian (the future Augustus) was only adopted by Caesar in return for buttsechs privileges.

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 18, 2012 at 11:20 am

To be fair, they had a good point about that "massacre of Indian villages" issue.

Estproph July 18, 2012 at 10:33 am

"Wasn't vetted" = "we now know he's black"

HistoriCat July 18, 2012 at 11:05 am

He's black?!? What the hell is wrong with the media? We should have been told this in 2008.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Nobody told ME!!

Goonemeritus July 18, 2012 at 10:34 am

Romney staffers are stocking a yacht with dildos as we speak.

Goonemeritus July 18, 2012 at 10:34 am

When does Romney dress up as a pimp?

thatsitfortheother1 July 18, 2012 at 10:48 am

Whenever he does, he's gonna need a fresh ho, that's for sure.

DerrickWildcat July 18, 2012 at 10:35 am

In Kolob we trust.

thatsitfortheother1 July 18, 2012 at 10:50 am

Kolob. Sounds so much like a root vegetable. Or a sausage.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 18, 2012 at 10:35 am

"in over his head" = code for uppity.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 10:48 am

And "he wasn't vetted" means "voters must not of realized he's a black African negro!"

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:56 pm

Yeah, it's just amazing how those dumbass voters will cold MISS stuff like that. What was it the wealthy bazillionaire was saying at Mitt's fundraiser? All these little people, the nail girls, the salon ladies, they don't understand the issues.

Apparently, his blackity-black-blackness is one of those "issues."

chicken_thief July 18, 2012 at 10:48 am

I thought it was code for "dumb nigger". 'Cause, you know, without Affirmative Action, Hussein would still be getting high and shootin' hoops in Honolulu.

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 10:54 am

Or that, you know, those people just don't have the intellectual capacity for higher level white collar jobs. Nice guy (boy?), though.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Except, of course, it's SO OBVIOUSLY Mitt who's in over his head. Barack's campaign is releasing videos one after the other. Short, sharp shocks. Mitt is reeling and flailing like a punch-drunk boxer. Almost sad.

BoroPrimorac July 18, 2012 at 4:09 pm

That's what I hear when Krauthammer calls Obama an adolescent and Rubio calls him naive.

Mittens Howell, III July 18, 2012 at 10:36 am

I miss the Assassin's Creed rip-off

JustPixelz July 18, 2012 at 10:37 am

"wasn't vetted" is the new "isn't white"

The Romney camp should be very careful accusing other people of "sweetheart deals". He got $100K a year to do "nothing whatsoever" at Bain from 1999 to 2002.

And if the Romney camp thinks Obama's policies have been a failure, imagine what they think of Dubya Bush's! (Hint: Romney calls those "my policies too".)

AncienReggie July 18, 2012 at 5:44 pm

And that $100k was just his salary. It's a good guess a few of Bain's investments yielded a buck or two on top of that.

MittBorg July 19, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Remember when RMONEY said $349,000 was "not a lot of money"? Your guess would be good.

zumpie July 18, 2012 at 10:37 am

Mitty really does take "i'm rubber, you're glue" to an entirely new art form, doesn't he?

Chow Yun Flat July 18, 2012 at 10:38 am

I mean, this is a guy who…has been President for three and a half years so suck it Romney staffer.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 10:38 am

"the only thing he can do is to try to destroy a decent man and his wife"

Wait, I thought they were saying Obama is trying to destroy Romney? There is nothing decent about that dog-torturing, job-destroying, tax-cheating bully.

weejee July 18, 2012 at 10:39 am

I heard from an unnamed source on the Intertubes that Mitt Romney luvs having buttsechs with goats. Madame Editrix you need to get Newell on this storyline immediately.

DerrickWildcat July 18, 2012 at 10:40 am

I think a vet would slap Romney.

I'll bet Romney doesn't know how to make his lover girl rock, either.

Mittens Howell, III July 18, 2012 at 10:41 am

Unnamed Advisor is very effective.

And cheap, too!

Mostly because he lives in Mumbai and doesn't require any of those annoying employee benefits.

neiltheblaze July 18, 2012 at 10:41 am

They say "Nixonian" now as if Republicans haven't been Nixonian ever since Nixon.

OneYieldRegular July 18, 2012 at 1:14 pm

I don't care if he's dead; I still want to see him impeached.

anniegetyerfun July 18, 2012 at 1:57 pm

What wasn't communicated in the article is the tone of grudging admiration that colored that statement.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:03 pm

They shouldna done that. They done made Mr. Barack all mad, now.

SoBeach July 18, 2012 at 10:41 am

So the guy who won't release his tax returns thinks the President hasn't been vetted. Next item straight out of the Rove playbook: Obama is stiff, awkward in public, and tone deaf.

By October they'll have nearly half the public believing that Obama is a communist who used to run a venture capital firm that gutted companies and outsourced jobs while evading income taxes.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 10:46 am

Fuck, they're already trying to claim that Obama is responsible for outsourcing by investing in clean energy firms. Because some of those firms are foreign, even though the money was for development within the US. Um, yeah, that makes sense.

BigSkullF*ckingDog July 18, 2012 at 10:53 am

And he's Mormon! That's super creepy.

freakishlywrong July 18, 2012 at 11:02 am

He's already called him "out of touch". With a straight face. (RMoney has no other face).

Chow Yun Flat July 18, 2012 at 10:42 am

Seamus had to be vetted after his ride on the car rooftop–the vet was horrified at what Romney did to the poor beast.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 10:42 am

And once again, how the fuck can anyone claim that Obama wasn't vetted when his history and personal life were examined in fine detail by the media more than any other Presidential candidate in history? It's like they forget the endless media obsessions with remarks by his pastor taken out of context and his knowing a guy who was part of the Weather Underground back when he was ten back in 2008.

actor212 July 18, 2012 at 10:45 am

Do you know what he ate Jan. 10, 1973?

No? Then we have to find out!

SoBeach July 18, 2012 at 10:50 am

And once again, how the fuck can anyone claim that Obama wasn't vetted when his history and personal life were examined in fine detail by the media more than any other Presidential candidate in history?

It's easy. Not everyone knows Obama is a secret Kenyan Muslim commie socialist nazi incompetent evil genius out to Saul Alinsky the USA. We'll know he's been vetted when everyone finally gets it and we have our freedom back.

anniegetyerfun July 18, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I love the "incompetent evil genius" part because everyone wingnut blog is just spilling over its gravy-stained sweatpants with comments about how Obama is so incredibly crafty and simultaneously too stupid to tie his own shoes.

zumpie July 18, 2012 at 10:54 am

That doesn't really count because they were "in the tank" for Obama all along!

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 11:27 am

So in the tank that they repeated every smear against Obama constantly, while never even mentioning the name of Charles Keating!

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 11:00 am

Yeah, but remember, these half-witted dolts just this year finally got around to finding out (not actually reading, mind you) what was in the not one, but two, Obama autobiographies that have been available since the early 90s.

Shocking, really. Since back in 2008 they had done all that exhaustive word comparison massaging and squinting real hard to prove that Bill Ayers wrote the books.

valthemus July 18, 2012 at 10:42 am

"… the only thing [Obama] can do is to try to destroy a decent man and his wife…"

I don't know who that adviser could possibly be talking about.

AncienReggie July 18, 2012 at 5:50 pm

So, Romney's people trying to pass him off as a decent man? Hah!

randcoolcatdaddy July 18, 2012 at 10:43 am

Translation: This Obama person is probably a nice guy, but would _never_ get a membership at _my_ country club….

SayItWithWookies July 18, 2012 at 10:45 am

“I mean, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in Chicago…"

Only one house, Mitt? And it probably doesn't even have a car elevator or its own lobbyist. Really, a guy without a lobbyist for his house shouldn't even be able to get elected dogcatcher in this country.

elviouslyqueer July 18, 2012 at 10:45 am

Oh please, Rebecca. Everyone knows that Breitbart is really here.

sullivanst July 18, 2012 at 11:22 am

Have to say, the caption just makes me think "Dennis Quaid is here!"

ManchuCandidate July 18, 2012 at 10:45 am

This should work out awesome, for everyone but Romboto. Since Captain Angry's heart kicked out, the Bitparters have been jumping from one farce to the next… like Romney.

DemmeFatale July 18, 2012 at 10:46 am

Way to sound desperate.

Dildeaux July 18, 2012 at 10:47 am

"Vetting the President" is code for

"We have $1,000,000,000 of SuperPAC money sitting on the sidelines right now. We are in the process of developing and releasing dozens of videos that will call into question the very existence of Barack Obama. This will make swiftboating look like LOLcats by comparison. We will say and do anything, absolutely anything, to win. We are about to prove that to anyone who doubts us. Our made-up-from-whole-cloth attacks against the President will be so outrageous, so factless, the media will fawn over them for their brazen, crass misuse of language and images. The story becomes our ability to attack. Truthfulness is a quaint, unnecessary political requirement for pussies and reality-focused morans. Step aside and watch the Right Wing Noise Machine work its magic."

fuflans July 18, 2012 at 11:00 am

you make me very sad.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:41 pm

That might work, except that Romney is a man without a core, a hollow man, and nothing he says or does at this point can refute that impression. He knows it, so he's flailing around *desperately* trying to change the subject. He's been trying for about ten days now. And *nothing* is working. At this point, he's resorting to, "OMG, Obama's DESTROYINGK me, oh, noes, I R DED." Now, I would give him a chance of recovery if he had some good people on his team. But because he is a hollow man, he is only capable of surrounding himself with like-minded folks, and sycophants. And that is what is killing him. His sycophants are ALSO hollow men, and they have no authentic core from which to respond. And that is coming through VERY clearly.

Also, too, David Axelrod has some fucking GENIUSES on his staff.

cletar July 19, 2012 at 7:54 pm

It's worth bearing in mind that Mitt couldn't beat McCain. Now he has to run against the guy who beat the HELL out of McCain.

MittBorg July 19, 2012 at 8:31 pm

And despite his buckets of money he lost this thing when that first Obama movie ad came out.

arihaya July 18, 2012 at 10:47 am

Or was it all the way back in 1885, when the “Ma ma, where’s my pa?” chants went up about Grover Cleveland?

since when did a Muppet can run for president?

Vecchiojohn July 18, 2012 at 10:53 am

Herman Cain doesn't count?

Should we do something similar to Grover Norquist?

President Chester A. Arthur was also repeatedly accused of not having been born in this country.

Terry July 18, 2012 at 10:51 am

The Romneyites are really getting cranky, aren't they?

Their battle plan has been brilliant thus far. Promote Romney's business experience and acumen, then try to place that same business record beyond questioning (both his Bane, uh, Bain work and his taxes).

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:43 pm

The RWNJs are weeping and wailing because the vaunted RMONEY Death Star appears to have PLOTZED in the fight with O. They can't seem to do *any*thing right. If he can't change the tenor of the public discussion within five days MAX, they're gonna turn on him. It won't be pretty. They don't like him, and it's starting to show.

el_donaldo July 18, 2012 at 10:53 am

So the big question as Romney was cinching the nomination was whether he would try to navigate to the center and woo independents or double-down on the crazy and excite the base. Any questions about his strategy now?

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:44 pm

He trapped himself in this corner when he started sucking their dicks.

chascates July 18, 2012 at 10:55 am

I just sent this in as a tip but it's way too important to take a chance on it not getting posted: Barack Obama was not only a RED DIAPER BABY his entire entourage were COMMIE YOUTHS as well!!!!! <a href="http://frontpagemag.com/2012/jamie-glazov/the-communist-frank-marshall-davis-the-untold-story-of-barack-obama%E2%80%99s-mentor/” target=”_blank”>http://frontpagemag.com/2012/jamie-glazov/the-communist-frank-marshall-davis-the-untold-story-of-barack-obama%E2%80%99s-mentor/

Kengor: Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Party USA (CPUSA) number 47544, was a 20th century American who wrote pro-Soviet propaganda in newspaper columns and was a loyal Soviet patriot. I must note that it was also through this group that Davis would work with Robert Taylor, who just happened to be the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett.

FP: That’s remarkable. Valerie Jarrett today is Obama’s right-hand woman in the White House.

Kengor: Yes, and it’s even more eerie than that. Frank Marshall Davis, Obama’s mentor, also worked with Vernon Jarrett in these circles. Vernon Jarrett was Valerie’s father-in-law. And it’s worse still. Davis, Obama’s mentor, also worked with Harry and David Canter, two other Chicago communists. The Canters mentored a young man named David Axelrod in Chicago in the 1970s. So, the troika that’s arguably running America today—Obama and Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod—all have common bonds in Chicago’s communist circles from the 1940s. Their mentors knew each other.

I know this is incredible, but it’s true. You couldn’t make this up. No one would believe it. We’re being governed by ghosts from Chicago’s Communist Party glory years.

FP: Are there other people that Frank Marshall Davis worked with in Chicago who have relevance today?

Kengor: Oh, yes, I could go on and on. At the Chicago Star, the communist newspaper for which he wrote and was the founding editor-in-chief (1946-48), Davis regularly shared the op-ed page with Senator Claude “Red” Pepper, who at that exact time was writing the bill to nationalize healthcare in the United States—which Davis himself advocated in his columns. By the way, Pepper’s chief of staff, who wrote that bill, was Charles Kramer, who we now know was working for the KGB under the codename “mole.”

So not only was Sen. McCarthy right but Dick Nixon as well! But why didn't they warn us about Barack Hussein Obama? WHO GOT TO THEM?!?!?!?!

actor212 July 18, 2012 at 11:04 am

Kramer? Was a mole?

So that makes Jerry Seinfeld part of the Sandanistas!

chascates July 18, 2012 at 11:08 am

Remember the episode when Kramer had Jerry bring back Cubans from Florida?

Claude Pepper. Wiki

OMFG!!!!!!!!!! MURDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On May 26, 1989, Pepper was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George H. W. Bush and died in his sleep four days later.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:51 pm

I prefer "Red" Pepper, myself.

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 11:49 am

"… Robert Taylor, who just happened to be the grandfather of Valerie Jarrett."
Gee, I thought he was just the Sheriff on Longmire.

Oh, and the rest of this? Claude "RED!" Pepper? The saintly Claude Pepper worshiped by his constituents for his tireless support of the elderly?
And troika! Axelrod!

I'm thinking this is just not going to get a whole lot of traction even in our current dim-witted media environment.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:46 pm

The story appears to have been yanked, Chas.

CapnRadio July 18, 2012 at 10:55 am

That crunching noise you hear is just the Romney folk throwing Nixon's fetid corpse under the campaign bus.

Yes. The law degree, the presidency… just handed to him like a shriner throwing candy from a parade.

Whenever did politics get to the point where we can question how someone makes all of their pretty, shiny money?

zumpie July 18, 2012 at 11:00 am

So vetting Mittens is "destroying a decent man and his wife" (because running for national office never entails any sort of scrutiny), but endlessly rehashing non-existen issues from umpteen catrillion years ago with the Prez is being responsible?

Yup, Republicans.

SorosBot July 18, 2012 at 11:09 am

But how a man makes his money and avoids paying taxes on it is nothing but character assassination! While digging up every single person a man has ever once met in his personal life and finding some tangential way they may have been related to or known a "communist" and demanding documentary proof of what he was doing every second of his life is perfectly reasonable.

bikerlaureate July 18, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Class envy is another cause, too, also.

If a Democrat can destroy someone by citing facts, even a generous interpretation of the word "decent" isn't going to fly with independents with an average IQ or better.

Pol Wars Episode Seven: The Phantom President

GlowneyHouse July 18, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Strange.. when you run that phrase through the the Google English-to-Wingnut translator "phantom" comes out as "spook."

fuflans July 18, 2012 at 11:02 am

the romney campaign sounds increasingly like a pre-pubescent girl.

Chet Kincaid July 18, 2012 at 11:29 am

Perhaps this is because, as unconfirmed reports on the Internet suggest, Romney has many financial ties to international trafficking in pre-pubescent girls, as can be traced via damning evidence in his unreleased tax returns?

rickmaci July 18, 2012 at 2:08 pm

There is something in those returns that he reeaaallly does not want America to see. He was born well off, no question. But he went from well off to super mega wealth in his own adult lifetime. That just doesn't happen unless you create something unique and marketable, which we know Mitt did not do. So he is a financial parasite and the only way those types get that kind of bank is by doing things that are illegal, immoral or unethical, or some combination of all of those things.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:56 pm

HufflePuffz just ran a story about how the 2010 returns are incomplete because they don't include the FBAR report regarding his Swiss bank account. And Forbes was speculating yesterday that he's not releasing because he paid ZERO taxes in 2009, just as the rest of us were watching our savings/retirement/IRA melt away. More rain on ShittyMitty's parade in the forecast, I'm afraid.

DahBoner July 18, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Has he denied this yet???

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 4:54 pm

Oh, you heard that too, huh? Man, it's ALL OVER the InterNetz.

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 12:07 pm

"the romney campaign sounds increasingly like a pre-pubescent girl."

But with slightly more foot stamping, door-slamming, bursting-into-tears, and note passing behind teacher's back. Goodness knows their campaign strategy seems to hinge on cootie-catcher* decision making.

If Romney loses this election, I guess he can comfort his sorrows of being personally attacked by counting his munnies. Or he can pray for divine guidance from Moron, or go search for golden plates, or marry another woman. He has lots to accomplish.

UnholyMoses July 18, 2012 at 11:04 am

Who's this Mitt Rmoney chap? Is he the guy working with Bane to kill Batman?

Callyson July 18, 2012 at 11:11 am

"Wasn't vetted" = Dammit, no matter what we do we can't seem to destroy Obama…

Assholes.

ttommyunger July 18, 2012 at 11:11 am

Desperation has never been more attractive.

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 11:13 am

"He believes it’s time to vet the president. He really hasn’t been vetted; McCain didn’t do it.”

Every time one of these poopheads says "vet", "vetted", or "vetting", insert "beat", "beaten", or "beating."

"He believes it’s time to beat the president. He really hasn’t been beaten; McCain didn’t do it.”

See?

ASHLEIGH_Joe July 18, 2012 at 11:18 am

When did our politics get to that point? I mean, it’s Nixonian.”

Asked and answered.

…which party was he in, again?

fartknocker July 18, 2012 at 11:21 am

The bottom of the barrel that Romney is scraping looking for malfeasance in President's Obama's life is looking pretty fucking clean.

Fraudulently_Joe July 18, 2012 at 11:23 am

Wasn't vetted? I'm pretty sure the CIA does a background check, people.

DahBoner July 18, 2012 at 4:27 pm

You can't get a security clearance w/o a burf certificate, dumbass Teabaggers…

Tommy1733 July 18, 2012 at 11:26 am

OWW! The Vetting!!! IT BU-U-U-U-U-URNS!!!!

Chet Kincaid July 18, 2012 at 11:26 am

Bring it, motherfucker! All the crap you mentioned is Old Obama News. Your candidate's shit, however, is fresh, piping hot pie for the media, and it has goaded him into putting his fingerprints all over the bullshit attacks you're going to launch. How many fingers does Romney have left to blow off with these "fireworks"?

AncienReggie July 18, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I used to look that sober. Dim light and distance were my best friends.

OneYieldRegular July 18, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Wait, so a guy who's intent on hiding everything he's ever done now wants to supersize the vettening in this election season? This should be fun.

ChessieNefercat July 18, 2012 at 1:26 pm

No, no, no! Only the Kenyan candidates need vettening! It's in the Konstuhtueshun!

Fox n Fiends July 18, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Hey Conservatard, Nixon never paid taxes either.

lunchbox360 July 18, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Something tells me that "vetting" in this case is just Romney speak for "we're just gonna make some shit up".

rickmaci July 18, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Never mind that we are all getting Mitt's mushroom treatment- kept in the dark about his taxes and covered in shovel loads of shit to hide the truth.

bobbert July 18, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Or, to quote you, "Don't Pay, Don't Tell".

(I really want to see that catch on)

anniegetyerfun July 18, 2012 at 2:09 pm

and btw mole is not a code name, genius.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:50 pm

You know, a LOT of us have hugged a black guy. Maybe even several.

Jus' sayin', man.

MittBorg July 18, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Poor Mitt! All that money, and he can't figure out how to keep Barack from kicking his ass like it was a futbol.

DahBoner July 18, 2012 at 4:22 pm

FASTER!!! FURRIER!!!!

But can Mitt Rommey hold his leg out while licking his sss, like my cat???

bobbert July 18, 2012 at 5:18 pm

"Nixonian"? Who does this moron think he's talking to? People younger than about 55 only remember Tricky as a historical figure. People who are old enough to remember the motherfucker are not going to confuse him with Bamz, whatever their opinions are about either. Invoking Nixon isn't going to change anyone's mind.

Now, "Rovian" might have some impact, but, oh, wait ….

rickmaci July 18, 2012 at 5:33 pm

The comment actually speaks volumes about the old white guy Rethug mentality. They have never gotten over the takedown on Trickydickie and have been thrashing around for a payback ever since, which is how the whole gottcha thing with Clinton brewed up. When Clinton got away from them, that just made them mental. They were ready to burn BHO effigies if the SCOTUS knocked down the ACA. The outcome in the court has turned them into an all out full blown batshitcrazy mob. Look for their desperation level to amp up even more as Romoney falters.

cletar July 19, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Yeah, McCain didn't vet Obama. You know who McCain did vet, though? Romney. McCain vetted Romney for VP, and then PICKED SOMEONE ELSE.

Good luck with the whole "not vetted" thing, Willard.

MittBorg July 19, 2012 at 8:24 pm

You do know that the entire 100-pg oppo-research FILE McCain assembled on RMONEY is available online as a PDF download, right? Some mysterious person appears to have leaked it to the press. Everyone associated with McCain's campaign is blaming one of the two FamilyCircus villains.
