Oh Look Here Is Cheating Cheater Mitt Romney Pulling Illegal Notes Out At The Debate (Updated)

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

My, that takes some brass. We checked. No pre-written notes were allowed.

Anyone miss the good old days of George W. Bush’s “bullet proof vest”?

Update! The Romney campaign claims the object in question is an incredibly starched handkerchief, which Romney unaccountably used to cover the paper at his podium. If anything it just makes too much sense!

Update Again! Here, via a Sam Stein tweet, is Mitt Romney wiping his nose with what looks like a paper napkin, which would be stiffer than a handkerchief, it is true! So we are now willing to stipulate that it is possible Mitt Romney is not a cheating cheater, in this one instance.

But he totally still could be.

Lascauxcaveman October 5, 2012 at 12:34 pm

That's what I'm thinking too. The lamestream media is trying desperately to make this sound like a horserace, however.

In any given article on the subject, you have to read all the way down to the last few graphs to get to the part that says "However, in the major battleground states, Mr. Obama's lead averages 4 – 8 points in most polls, and appears to be growing slowly week by week."

no_gravity October 5, 2012 at 11:36 am

Sneaking in notes is just an extension of Lying for the Lord, so it's ok.

PugglesRule October 5, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Lying for the Lord could be the underpinning of his pathological need to lie about pretty much everything. I guess the commandment about "Thou shalt not lie" doesn't apply to Mormons.

MLHencken October 5, 2012 at 11:36 am

Oh, here we go. Mittens is going to be all: "they were blank" or whatever and the more butthurt Democrats get about it the less effective it will be as a criticism. That shit just bounced off Bush when it happened to him.

Well, does stealing perfectly good companies and running them into the ground count?

Today he says "I was completely wrong" about the 47%. Once a man admits he's wrong, he's immediately forgiven. That's what Vincent Vega says anyway. Of course Jules didn't take it well and made Vince clean up the little pieces of brain in the back seat.

Willardbot9000_V2.5 October 6, 2012 at 1:49 am

Yeah I dunno…I don't know why so many libtards are freaking out about Obama's performance. The way I see it is first off, check the tapes from 2008 and you'll see Obama has been and always will be kind of…civil at debates. He's actually debating in the traditional style emphasizing substance over style. Incumbent presidents ALWAYS suck with debates because their need to defend their record always makes them look weak compared to their challenger. Everyone remembers Clinton in '92 v. Bush but does anyone remember the '96 debates? They were as boring as a night out with the Romneys. Personally, it would not surprise me at all if Obama's strategy was totally thrown off by the breathtaking lies Romney spewed. .

Willardbot9000_V2.5 October 6, 2012 at 1:50 am

I mean, I think he wanted to defend his record and policy ideas while highlighting what a heartless rightwing fuckwad Romney is and Romney magically "disagreed" with verifiable reality. Should he have been called on it? YES! But it's not really Obama's stylet to do so (again referring to '08). That in and of itself needs to change because Romney is going to keep on lying while his campaign quietly "clarifies" the nonsense claims he makes. It's not easy to debate a used car salesman when nobody but you gets to call him a dirty lying liar with pants on fire so much so that the heat resembles a pyroclastic cloud the size of Mount Pele's 1902 killer eruption. Barry is now setting up the "real" Romney (as if one exists) versus the new fake Romney so lets see if he keeps running with it. It's worked against Romney every other time that it's been used (the 2008 GOP debates were funny because I think McNasty and Huckster literally did light RMoney's expensive pants on fire at one point).

francesdavey October 5, 2012 at 11:39 am

Wow. Someone had hinted that Romney had gone over and grabbed Pres. Obama's notes, so I went back and watched on C-Span. I saw that he had gotten something from his own podium and after clumsily trying to find a pocket for them, handed them off to one of the kids.

Nahh RMoney would never PAY a man so far beneath his visage. Those were for his after the debate party where they take one of those hundreds, tie it to a string and trick homeless people into running after them. The way to win this game (it's called the Hobo Rodeo to those outside of such erudite and wealthy circles) is to trick a homeless person into chasing the money until they trip over or fall into something that causes serious bodily harm. Bonus points are rewarded if one of them dies while they chase the money….Willard always goes for the bonus points of course.

I'm not good with all the fancy linking, but a google search quickly unearthed a photo of him using what is clearly a handkerchief later in the debate.

Not to go all Zapruder here, but from the clip it could have easily been both a hankie and a crib sheet – one contained in the other. I've done and seen enough shitty magic to spot the hankie as misdirection, especially if he only used it after he no longer needed the notes (closing remarks). All of which would explain why it looks so stiff when he pulls it out, then he messes around with it and finally when he wipes his nose at the end it looks wilted.

And yes, I see what I did there. Ewww.

I agree. I don't believe Thurston would use a paper hanky or napkin (I don't even think he knows they exist)….but nto only could he use it to hide crib notes in it, he could write crib notes ON it.

We all know he was desperate to win—-I have no doubt that he cheated. Granted, Obama helped him win…but Mittens is a lying liar and a cheating cheater

Aww.

But could not the bespoke handkerchief have had notes painstakingly woven into its very fabric?

By Rafalca?

Something?

Darn.

It was a stack of $100's he was planning to use for his "bet you $10,000" zinger.

CommieDad October 5, 2012 at 1:00 pm

It is clearly a hankie. But even if it was a note, what the fuck could it have said? You don't need notes to make up numbers!

Toomush_Infer October 5, 2012 at 1:09 pm

It do look like notes, but here's the problem (and I'm not going to review the debate again to see if I'm right):….he didn't say anything!….just a few phrases, like "trickle-down government " (whatever that is), and "You don't know what's in my budget"….

DahBoner October 5, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Big fucking deal.

It's not like lying, cheating and bearing false witness against Kenyans is prohibited in The Bible or anything…

Mitt Romney = Mr. Hanky

This is good news for Cliff Notes.

carlgt1 October 5, 2012 at 1:28 pm

you silly libruls – Mormons just like to heavily starch their hankies!

It was Hannity's personal phone number in case he didn't get the 47% question.

Abernathy October 5, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Even Romney want to wipe that shitastic smile off his own face.

savethispatient October 5, 2012 at 1:56 pm

I remember at the end of the debate, after the handshakes, Mitt walked back to his podium and picked up what looked like some notes. My friend and I were all, "What are you doing Mittens, there'll be someone to do that for you". If he wasn't supposed to have notes, that makes a lot more sense!

I know that whenever I take a napkin with me to a speaking engagement, I ALWAYS keep looking down at it.

eastcoastelite October 5, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Uh. Yeah. A handkerchief WITH NOTES WRITTEN ON IT DUH!

proudgrampa October 5, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Lying liar lies.

savethispatient October 5, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Here's the bit at the end, I was talking about: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/clip/4008435 That's a very letter-sized handkerchief he has!

Yellerdawg October 5, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Not everyone can afford a teleprompter.

mr bojangles October 5, 2012 at 2:13 pm

guy never heard of kleenex, what a wierd asshole!

Toomush_Infer October 5, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Okay, I looked at it again, closely – it IS a note, but it just says :"Don't drool"…

sarainitaly October 5, 2012 at 3:32 pm

Seriously? You've never seen a linen handkerchief before?

Stop the stupid, please.

fuflans October 5, 2012 at 11:52 pm

oh for fuck's sake.

FeloniousMonk October 6, 2012 at 12:09 am

the object in question is an incredibly starched handkerchief

This makes perfect sense to me. At the start of every class, I spread my snot-rag out on the lectern, because … why do I do that?

Sassomatic October 6, 2012 at 12:24 am

So he's wiping his nose with his economic plans, so what? Obama literally wipes his ass with the Constitution everyday. I'm told the Drudge Report has video.

bibliotequetress October 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I agree these are not notes. He needs a hanky after his handlers spray his moving parts with WD-40.

ttommyunger October 6, 2012 at 10:20 pm

That would be a magic hankie, made up of the same material as his fart-proof, skid-mark resistant magic fucking undies; so he's got that going for him, which is nice…
