YOU DIDN'T BUILD THAT  9:07 am July 25, 2012

Romney Hates Olympic Athletes in Addition to Poors, Blinds, Gays, and Welfare Moms

by Kris E. Benson

mitt romney dog loverYou are never going to BELIEVE what Mitt Romney hates! Besides puppies, moms, and chocolate donuts. And blind people. And people who might be gay. And (very) Poors. Oh and taxes. But you’re doing great so keep guessing! Have you guessed yet? Olympic athletes! It’s Olympic athletes. See, after Obama pointed out that businesspeople relied on a combination of individual entrepreneurship, community support, and functional infrastructure, Romney took his remarks entirely out of context (shocking), informing small business owners that the president thinks that “they didn’t build that.” Well, guess everyone will just have to suck it.

Speaking back in 2002 in Salt Lake City,  Romney said one of the many statements that he would probably want to take back, if he had any integrity, that is, which he doesn’t.

“You Olympians, however, know you didn’t get here solely on your own power. For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers encouraged your hopes,” he said after praising the competitors in footage unearthed by NBC News. “Coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions. All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them. We’ve already cheered the Olympians, let’s also cheer the parents, coaches and communities.”

How’s that Etch-a-sketch going, Mitt? Maybe we should cheer that next.

He forgot to mention the steroid suppliers; no athlete could get very far without their help.

God Bless BALCO!

Dr_pangloss July 25, 2012 at 9:27 am

Thanks especially to big Pharma for making legal steroids for our athletes to use, until next year then we can make that partiucular type of steriod illegal and make a new batch.

And then there's whoever makes the drugs for gymnasts that stop them from reaching puberty until they hit 18 or 19. That just ain't natural.

BerkeleyBear July 25, 2012 at 2:35 pm

It has to do with low body fat in women, plus genetics, creating a low level of hormones from what I know. But a lot of them do hit puberty at 15 or 16, and immediately are disqualified from Olympic consideration. Seriously, sports where you are washed up by college suck.

To be fair, some of his best friends own companies that sponsor the Olympics.

And the Olympics own the athletes, just like the bidnesses that own them also own their slaves drones workers. Amitrite?

Of course they didn't do it by themselves in SLC. Mitt got half a billion federal tax dollars to "save" the Olympics that year.

When I was reading this HuffyPo article about Barry's new attack ad against RomBot 1000, my eye was drawn to this other story about Sally Ride having the gay! No wonder she ignored my impassioned crush letters, for fuck's sake!

Ha…one up on you! After I sent her my 'ride this rocket' crush letter, I got a protection order.

She didn't just have the gay, she had the space gay!

Since we've been allowing lesbians in space, what's next, an openly gay Star Trek character? (Well Jadzia Dax was apparently bi, but she's it).

Ok, not a regular character but an excellent episode anyhow. And that Dax was pretty awesome with the inter-species sex with Worf. Star Trek was always awesome with the sex stuff, geek version of porn.

AbandonHope July 25, 2012 at 11:31 am

Andrew Robinson says that he originally played Garak as omnisexual — hence his initial fascination with Doctor Bashir — but scaled it back when he felt it wasn't really working. Or maybe it was the writers objecting or something — I don't remember exactly.

SorosBot July 25, 2012 at 11:41 am

I actually forgot about that; but since Garak was only ever involved with Gul Dukat's daughter on screen, there is no direct confirmation he was anything other than straight.

Biff July 25, 2012 at 10:14 am

Certainly not the first big ol' gay lesbian I had the scorchies for, and probably won't be the last. That's my curse, falling in love with a person's mind first.

Also, too, guilty, as mentioned previously in other comments here.

A little too young to have had a crush on Dr. Ride, mind you; but growing up, her space flight was generally considered the only notable thing about the year I was born.

'All athletes stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them'? 'Thanks to the communities'? Who is this guy? Joe Stalin?

Of course, the dancing horse riders are the exceptions, being rich and white. Weren't the the dancing horses the most important athletes in the ancient Greek Olympics?

actor212 July 25, 2012 at 10:20 am

Indeed. In fact, the signature event, the decathlon, is Greek for "horse wife".

I hocked it and bought liquor

There is no "I", or "$" for that matter, in team. However, there is that pesky "me".

actor212 July 25, 2012 at 10:44 am

Also, meat. Too.

An comprehensive list of hated Olympian personalities should included Bob Costas as well.

x111e7thst July 25, 2012 at 10:43 am

A lot of these athletes are black. It is natural to hate them.

fuflans July 25, 2012 at 10:43 am

besides being rich obv.

Geminisunmars July 25, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Being a douchebag?

“You Olympians, however, know you didn’t get here solely on your own power".

He's obviously referring to Olympia Dukakis, a notorious welfare queen.

Just keep in mind that anyone quoting Mitt in the past to contrast with his current statements is a complete liar.

kittensdontlie July 25, 2012 at 7:27 pm

When you combine his past statements(his lies) with his current statements(his truths) by simple addition, cancel each other exactly, leaving Mitten as a ZERO.

There's a difference between businesses and athletes to a Romney, in that the athletes are simply commodities to be exploited for profit.

Mitt needs to enter the Olympics in the backstroke, because he seems pretty damn good at backstroking away from all of his previous "closely" held beliefs.

va_real July 25, 2012 at 11:43 am

Romney hates the Olympics because 'outsourcing' isn't a medal event.

valthemus July 25, 2012 at 11:50 am

No wonder Romney sucks. There's a big vacuum where his integrity was supposed to be.

viennawoods13 July 25, 2012 at 12:53 pm

posted this on yesterday's story, but too late for people to see it. This is truly the Awesomest example of lack of research

poorgradstudent July 25, 2012 at 2:56 pm

I'd have totally understood if Mittens said he hated Olympic athletes because "Days of our Lives" is being preempted for two whole weeks.

ttommyunger July 25, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Is balls-out Bullshitting an Olympic Sport yet? I think we have a winner, folks.

WunkRocker July 25, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Hence "ghost."
