The Proper Conservative Patriot’s Take On The Olympic Opening Ceremonies

Poor Jennifer Rubin, the unofficial public voice of the Romney campaign who continues to have a job at the Washington Post. Why doesn’t your Wonkette make fun of her more often? Maybe it’s too easy, but it’s not like that consideration has ever stopped us. Jen Rubin is sad today. Just a few days ago she was crowing, “The Obama campaign can’t bear the thought that the well-traveled Mitt Romney will make a nice impression on his overseas tour” — that the foreigns would instantly fall in love with Romney, a born diplomat. Unfortunately, within his first day or two of his arrival in our Special Friend country of England, Romney managed to insult the nation badly enough to earn a public rebuke from the conservative Prime Minister, the Mayor of London, and every newspaper and television station in the United Kingdom. What’s a Rubin to say now? How about… the Olympics opening ceremony is dumb, anyway, sorta like David Cameron is dumb.

American Person Travels To London For Olympic Games, Doesn’t Embarrass Entire Nation

Now that poor Mitt Romney has been called out for his “rude and graceless” remarks by none other than Carl Lewis — perhaps the greatest Olympian, who said of him in disgust, “some Americans just shouldn’t leave the country” — maybe his very bad news cycle is almost over. Has he said anything else awful? Well, this, which was a wee bit blorgh: Asked whether he felt “partly English” […], a chuckling Mr Romney replied: “Well, I’m married to a girl from Wales, and I’m a guy from Great Britain. So I feel like this is home too, I guess.” But he hasn’t hocked a loogie on the Queen or taken a poo in the bidet, to our knowledge, so he’s ahead of the game, for him. But is there someone else, another American, who maybe is in London now not being “graceless and rude,” and embarrassing all of US America? Oh, hai Michelle Obama! Thank you for going to Englande for us! Read more on American Person Travels To London For Olympic Games, Doesn’t Embarrass Entire Nation…

How Else Has Mitt Romney Insulted Jolly Olde Englande?

Mitt Romney is trying to prove his foreign policy chops are so much better than stupid hapless old Obama’s, and so he and his advisors are barnstorming across London, whinging about the threat from the Soviet Union. But His Lord High Hairgel has not had the easiest of receptions, as every person in that small island nation has their knickers up their bum because he is constantly insulting them. That’s right. Mitt Romney managed to make a trip supposed to “project leadership” into an international incident with our closest ally. But is laughing at their stupid Olympics (which could not possibly compare to the “national disgrace” helmed by Ol Mittens) the first time he has insulted Great Britain? We will give you one guess.

Why Won’t Mitt Romney Root For His Wife’s Dumb Horse?

Mitt Romney has taken a look at how they do things over there in old England-Land, and has quickly come to the well-justified conclusion that their Olympics are just a hot metric tonne of garbage compared to the awesome USA American Olympics he ran in Salt Lake City. But you’d think that he’d at least take some time out of hating the 2012 Olympics in general to show a little love for America’s greatest Olympian! We’re of course talking about Rafalca, the dressage horse partly owned by Mitt’s wife Ann. Why is he pretending that he hasn’t spent long evenings out in the stables, feeding Rafalca carrots and pouring out his soul? Read more on Why Won’t Mitt Romney Root For His Wife’s Dumb Horse?…

Mitt Romney Now Losing Friends And Alienating People In Olde Anglo-Saxon-Lande Too

Oh Mitt Romney, please stop making us feel sorry for you. You go to Yurp so you can be a Celebrity Rock Star like Obama was in 2008, and “project leadership,” and everywhere you go, you make people hate you. What jerk thing came out of your mouth this time? Oh, just that London was probably going to do a crap job with its Olympics, is all. “Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? That’s something which we only find out once the Games actually begin,” [Romney] said. “It’s hard to know just how well it will turn out. There are a few things that were disconcerting. “The stories about the private security firm not having enough people, the supposed strike of the immigration and Customs officials – that obviously is not something which is encouraging.” The remarks were greeted with anger, with many British supporters of the Games taking to Twitter to accuse Mr Romney of being graceless and rude.

New Obama Super PAC Ad Crosses the Line by Making Fun of Mitt Romney

The amoral scumbuckets who run the Obama campaign and Completely Unaffiliated Priorities USA Super PAC have really done it this time: they mock Mitt Romney’s history of saving the Olympics, a lil’ sidegig of his from back when he was still Bain Capital CEO, president, chairman, and sole stockowner. Have you ever saved an Olympics, Obama? HMMM. Let’s all thank the YouTube company for taking this ad down. It was just too mean to Mitt Romney.

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

You 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.

Fox & Friends Has All Sorts of Problems With These Olympic Team Berets

The thought-free muppets who host Fox News’ illiterate dementia variety hour Fox and Friends briefly mentioned the actual news nugget about the unveiled U.S. Olympic Team outfits today — they’re made in China, har har — but spent considerably more time examining the team’s hat wear: berets. Like all the fruity poets and mimes in France wear, amirite? Just imagine if these berets were green. How foo-foo mcgay would green berets be?

It Is Official, Mitt Romney Is Christopher Walken From ‘The Wedding Crashers’

Good morning, Washington Post! What do you have for us this morning? Oh, three Internet pages on Mitt Romney’s family outings to Lake Winnipesaukee? (As Ann Romney noted, while calling Moochelle NoOBaMa an uppity bitch, they “have [their] own places” for summering.) And your reporter cannot even contain his terrible reporterly rage? Cool, let us read you. WOLFEBORO, N.H. — This weekend, Mitt Romney is starting his annual summer vacation on his lakefront compound here — a week of fun and family, though not entirely carefree. The Romneys, 30 in all these days, spend their time away from the stresses of everyday life — like, say, wrapping up the Republican nomination for president — by following a highly orchestrated, highly competitive regimen of sports and games known as the “Romney Olympics.” The Romney Olympics have long included a mini-triathlon of biking, swimming and running that pits Mitt and his five sons and their wives against one another. But after Mitt once nearly finished last, behind a daughter-in-law who had given birth to her second child a couple of months earlier, the ultra-competitive and self-described unathletic patriarch expanded the games to give himself a better shot.

The Snow Makes Everything Cheaper

Olympics: The Winter Olympics are in full force, but no one seems to appreciate ever since that nice Georgian Luger died, in a sport. If you feel some patriotic desire (be it for America or Georgia) to watch the games, head to Asia Nine where any of the lounge’s bar snacks are only a buck while the Olympics are on. Or, you may be better off just learning how to curl. [Asia Nine] Read more on The Snow Makes Everything Cheaper…

Bill Kristol Discusses The Olympics: ‘There Are So Many Ironies In This’

Fake war person Bill Kristol went on the Fox News over the weekend to talk about how Barack Obama “lost the Olympics,” oh boy. Now in spite of the Weekly Standard‘s furious scrubbing attempts, we already knew, thanks to the magic of the Internets, how Bill Kristol and his chums at the Standard responded to Friday’s announcement: with raging monster boners. So the real treat in this clip is to hear Bill Kristol do his “Obama voice” (around :24). It is that of a Muppet.

It Cannot Be Overstated How Excited Republicans Are That Bad Things Have Happened For America Today

Things are getting so out-of-hand that the forecasters at “Team Romney” are having to step in and act like adults: “There are cooler heads: Former Mitt Romney spokesman Kevin Madden passed along some entirely unheeded advice from another Republican strategist, Scott Stanzel: ‘Note to GOP officials/consultants – resist temptation to pile on about Chicago losing just becuz Obama made the pitch.'” Read more on It Cannot Be Overstated How Excited Republicans Are That Bad Things Have Happened For America Today…

Conservatives So, So Happy That Obama Could Not Bring Economy-Spurring Olympics To America

The brilliant political humans at National Review‘s The Corner — the #1 Internet blog — are cold slappin’ high-fives and chuggin’ jars of Elmer’s glue because they are just so happy that the American president was unable to bring the biggest sporting event on earth, and a boon to the local economy of Chicago, to America.
