      Anyone, meeting Mitt Romney for the first time:
      " 'Mitt'? Is that short for 'Mitchell'? " Mitt explains.

      Then, if both are white:
      "Named after a football player? That's great!"

      If Mitt were black, however:
      "That's not an American name, now, is it?"

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        "Named after a football player? That's great!"

        I thought it was Newt who got that.

    No one's asked to see Mitt Romney's birth certificate. Also, no one asked to see Mitt Romney in general.

    On the other hand, no one has asked to see Obama's tax returns.

    • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

      Disirregardless, as they say at some of our finer institutions of Higher Leerning, he handed over a dozen years' worth.

  • Exhausted66

    A majority of the country's going to ask you to not be president, though.
    Douche.

    • chicken_thief

      We can only hope. However, there appears to be an unlimited supply of PAC money at his disposal.

      • Exhausted66

        Oh, I didn't say he wouldn't be elected.

  • http://gratuity.wordpress.com/ Gratuitous World

    Remember when Obama said, "Nobody has ever asked if I married multiple women and officially disputed the equality of black people until 1978."

    • Ducksworthy

      Unfortunately no, not yet. Maybe there's still time. Also, profited from the fetus disposal business would be good.

    • Chichikovovich

      That's a very good point. I don't remember ever hearing of anyone asking Obama if he traveled to a foreign country that was at that very moment confronting a crisis, including a coup d'etat, brought on by the struggles of its African colonies for freedom, and preached for several years the doctrine that Africans are marked by God as inferior and that interracial marriage is a sin.

      Edit: Nor do I remember Obama being asked if he had ever remained on a church mission significantly longer than his own church required, while coincidentally that mission work allowed him to dodge the Vietnam War.

      • BerkeleyBear

        A war that he was on record as supporting as a douchey little freshman at Stanford, before he transferred to whitey U where he led the booster club for white's only sports teams.

    I can only paraphrase Ann Richards – 'Poor Mittens, he can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.'.

    Isn't Hatelaff's daddy a Messican?

      Yes, he was born in a Mormon community in Mexico and actually ran for president. I guess at the time no one bothered to ask him for his birth certificate a million times.

    What Mitt Romney will never get is that Americans love nothing more than to see rich, pompous assholes slip on dogshit and fall into a manhole. He will keep this shit up until November when he finds out exactly how much he's despised.

    • Misty Malarky

      Yep. Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd, and most comedians of the silent screen understood the love of Americans to see fat cat blowhards make fools of themselves, preferably if it involved a banana peel.

    • miss_grundy

      But I want him to slip on the dogshit and fall into a bigger pile of dogshit, or fall through the manhole straight into the sewer line. And if a gigantic pane of glass could fall on him and cut him into pieces, that would be nice too.

    Obama campaign sez “…But Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America.”

    There is SO much about Rmoney and the Republicans that should give pause to any rational voter across America.

    • freakishlywrong

      It's the "rational" and "voter" part there that scares me shitless.

      • MOG2410

        And to think I used to be a rational voter.

    • HogeyeGrex

      Use a pants cannon

      Use a pants cannon
      It may be harsh that's true

      It'll Cover up bad meat

      It may be charged with air
      Or even TNT
      But it's making the world better

      Putting pantsless on the run
      Pants Cannon! Pants Cannon! Pants Cannon!

      When you're seeing a free willy
      From someone just dressed silly
      Use a pants cannon
      If he's dressed like Donald Duck
      But doesn't give a fuck
      Use a pants cannon
      When cover up's the goal
      Then call the pants patrol
      They'll get there really fast
      To cover the bare-assed
      Pants Cannon! Pants Cannon!

      Refrain

      When a shirted guy is loose
      And you don't want sofas juiced
      Use a pants cannon
      If you're looking at a penis
      Or somebody's mons venus
      Use a pants cannon
      If you cover up your tits
      Cover other naughty bits
      Please don't be a jerk
      That fashion look don't work
      Pants Cannon! Pants Cannon!

      But McCain chose to "educate" the stupid white bitch who said the President was a Muslim too late in the game. After all he had Sarah Barracuda out getting the white trailer trash all riled up.

    Mr. Obama… has long faced “birther” rumors from those who falsely question whether he was actually born in the United States.

    "Falsely" question, my ass. Deliberately question, with intent to smear, is more like it.
    The only thing falsified in the whole birther charade is the platform of imitation-grade righteousness from which these asshats make such assertions.

    • OneYieldRegular

      It has been abundantly clear for a long time that Team Romney will deliberately exploit the patently racist "otherness" aspect with which they hope to tag Obama.

      I wouldn't be surprised if Mittens releases a couple of years' worth of tax returns the weekend before the election, in time for the yabbering idiots in the media to talk about his doing so but too late for serious journalists to look at them and see what tricks he was able to pull with his money.

      Asshole.

      • sullivanst

    There was once a time, here in the place where Mitt was born and raised, when he would have just called him Barry a nigger. Now, black people are even allowed into Mitts church, sort of. That's the kind of progress that makes this the forth or fifth best industrialized country in the world!

    • BigSkullF*ckingDog

      Forth or fifth? Optimist.

    • Tundra Grifter

      If I remember "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" correctly (and it has been quite some time since I read it), he thought Ovid, Michigan, was one of the most racist places in the United States.

    Romney’s people like immediately walked it back

    To be fair: these handlers only took the job originally because they were told it was a programmed robot, and nothing is supposed to go wrong with template-based, mechanically driven, test-piloted American manufactured, preprogrammed tools for success.

        But he probably will blame that on being… powered out.

  • RadioBowels

    I heard this on the way into work on Russ, and he was like "yeah, right on, right on."

    Hey, Willard, suck macaca and like it.

  • HarryButtle

    Oh fer fuck's sake. The worst part is the walk-back afterwards. Just own it, Mitt. Your knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing constituency will love you all that much more.

  • HogeyeGrex

    What a smirking, pompous fucknugget.

    Yes, Mitt. You've made great advances since your earlier visit to Michigan. It looks like you can finally fill a venue with your adoring fans. All you have to do is be as awful a wretch as they are.

    This is only the beginning! The convention is right around the corner, and when they get that speaker/audience feedback loop of hate going, Talking Points Memo won't even be able to keep up with all the racist gaffes!

  • gullywompr

    You just know Bamz is going to vaporize him on this with another haymaker joke. Willard need to keep his day job (unemployed millionaire), and stop bringing a knife to a gun fight.

  • ElPinche

    It was due time that Romney went full reetard.

  • thurufally

    Apparently the Romney camp thinks the "stupid white bigot" vote is still up for grabs.

  • Limeylizzie

    Wasn't it yesterday that his campaign was crying about some comments on a blog about Mormonism? What a fucking, self-absorbed, shallow, lip-smacking, tax-evading cunt he is and Mrs.Cunt as well.

  • Misty Malarky

    Oh, great. __Now we get days and days of Fox and Friends spitting outrage about all the mean and hypocritical liberals being mean and hypocrytical at Mitt 'cause everybody knows he was just funnin' and besides Al Franken once cracked a Caspar Weinberger joke back in 1986.

  • ttommyunger

    I love the smell of desperation in the morning; it smells like……Defeat.

  • DahBoner

    Romney lied about his taxes before and got away with it:

    Will he get away with it again???

    Headline at ABC news: Did Romney Make a Birther Joke?

    Question: Will ABC ever just state the facts?

    • GunToting[Redacted]

      Shorter ABC article:

      "Yes."

  • smitallica

    Yes, Mitt, as a rich white person, it's so hard to get the benefit of the doubt in America.

  • Birther Headlines

    I am a member of a forum that tracks every move of the birthers, from ballot challenges to Orly Taintz.

    I'm not trying to spam, but I also have an aggregation website that is a perfect tracker of all birther and birther-leaning politician's activities. It contains feeds to every single anti-Obama birther blog and a lot of cool pics of Orly Taitz meeting with Reince Priebus, T-Paw, Newty, Rick Perry and plenty other GOP politicos. I put reports on ballot challenges against President Obama usually before anyone else as I have friends in most states who attend these hearings and many of them are actual lawyers, lol.

    Depending on your perspective and level of wake-n-bake, my aggregator can be quite hilarious.

    Mitt doesn't even have a birth certificate, he came with a warranty registration card.

  • http://www.facebook.com/pages/Johnny-Appletruth/133951326629923?sk=wall deanbooth

    If Romney's dad were alive, he would ask to see it.

  • mosjef

    Romney's birf certificate clearly states that his father was George Romney and his mother was a standard poodle.

  • VeraSevera

    This from a man whose great-grandaddy had 6 wives in Mexico. Which one was *really* his mother? Let's see him prove it!

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Not to be a party pooper, but Obama's grandfather was pretty much in the same league, wife-wise. Perfectly OK in Kenya, of course, but that makes it hard to get traction with the polygamy routine.

  • VeraSevera

    P.S. What's up with the dude in the nun's habit behind the stage?

    I think the appropriate reaction is now qualified for an acronym: OFFS.

    Har, Har, Har, knee-slapping laugh.

  • RWRyley

    I really lose faith in the system when I see or hear guys like Romney playing with the whack-job far right wing of the Republican party. Seems like he not only put the family dog on the top of his car, he also seems eager to send dog whistle messages to hate wing of his support base.

    I believe in calling a spade a spade. Fact is Mitt Romney is nothing more than a gutless punk who has flip-flopped his way through politics never taking a real stand on a single issue.

    As much as both Bushes and McCain were not my cup of tea, I'd be the first to admit that you least knew where they stood. When a unique moment in history required taking a stand that might offend their base, they did it. Romney hasn't. He is, pure and simple, one of the most amoral characters to come down the pike ever. He will literally say or do anything to become president. The scary part is that it just might work.

  • mustangsavvy

    The only question any sane person ever wants to ask Mitt is "So, you're a total wanker. How does that make you feel?"

  • FieryLocks

    "No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate."–Rmoney

    Yeah, Mitt…it helps to be white and come from a wealthy family.
