Mitt Romney, Worst Political Attack Dog Ever

Mitt Romney has been resurrected. After losing in a humiliating manner in the 2012 presidential race, he rightly shuffled off the political stage and laid low for a while. Now he’s back, casting himself in the role of Republican attack dog, saying the things about Hillary Clinton that this year’s GOP candidates don’t want to say. The results are enough to destroy irony meters on Mars.

“Somehow, though, when you see her on a stage or when she comes into a room full of people, she is smiling with her mouth, but her eyes are saying, ‘Where’s my latte?’”

Uh. Okay. What is that even supposed to mean?

“How can she get up there and sell a populist message when she makes in one hour a multiple of what the average American will make in a year?”

The man who said that is worth about $250 million and pays a lower percentage of it in taxes than the average teacher or fireman making $50,000 a year. And yet he tried to pose as a populist in 2012, as a champion of Joe Six-Pack, blah blah blah.

“I’m sure she’ll become more effective as time goes on. But at this stage, what does she really believe? I think people wonder can they really trust Hillary Clinton?”

I agree with him on that. I don’t think Hillary believes much of anything. I think she’s a lot like Romney, actually, in that the one thing she truly believes and would never compromise is her belief that she should be president. For for crying out loud, Mitt fucking Romney is saying this? We’ve never had a less authentic candidate for office. There isn’t a single position he took that didn’t contradict an earlier position he’d taken. Sometimes he’d flip flopped on his flip flops and ended up back at his original position.

Have we ever had a political candidate at this level so lacking in self-awareness as Mitt Romney?

    Have we ever had a political candidate at this level so lacking in self-awareness as Mitt Romney?

    To be fair to Romney, at this point his kernel has been patched so many times that it’s a wonder he boots up at all.

    Mitt’s comments about Hillary are about as unoriginal as they are lacking in substance. Like the soft spoiled entitled coward he is, he’s only doing what countless other people have already proved it’s safe to do, long after it’s been repeatedly proven safe. “Attack dog” my ass.

  • Synfandel

    I’m sure he has binders full of these remarks.

    No, but it is only a matter of time before Mitt Romney’s great new record is surpassed.

  • Pierce R. Butler

    Uh, Mitt, you can get a latté at many gas stations these days – they no longer signify special elite status.

    You might do well in the future to review your remarks in advance with your chauffeur or maids.

  • jufulu

    To be fair to Mittens, the Donald is back in and I believe that he leaves Mittens in the dust for clue-less-ness and self-aware-ness..

    We should recall that when Rmoney ran for the Senate against Ted Kennedy, he declared himself to be a steadfast defender of legalized abortion claiming that Kennedy was tepid on the issue.

  • John Pieret

    Yeah, but that was when he was in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. If he decided to run in the Great Confederate State of Texas against Ted Cruz, he’d be calling Teddy tepid on illegal immigration.

    The question is whether the Mittster is acting as the attack chihuahua of the GOP, toothlessly gumming on Hilary’s ankle, or is he pulling a Sarah Palin by going rouge because that’s just the way he rolls. Either way, he’s still never going to be president.

    “How can she get up there and sell a populist message when she makes in one hour a multiple of what the average American will make in a year?”

    To be fair, this would also be a strong message if you were running against JFK or FDR.

  • Kevin Kehres

    So Romney is working for the Sanders campaign, then?

    /s

  • scienceavenger

    Uh. Okay. What is that even supposed to mean?

    That she’s rich and out of touch with and doesn’t care about people obviously.

    “How can she get up there and sell a populist message when she makes in one hour a multiple of what the average American will make in a year?”

    The man who said that is worth about $250 million and pays a lower percentage of it in taxes than the average teacher or fireman making $50,000 a year. And yet he tried to pose as a populist in 2012, as a champion of Joe Six-Pack, blah blah blah.

    Blah blah blah indeed Ed, one ad hominem doesn’t warrant another. A much better answer is that the message doesn’t depend on the messenger, and in this case Hillary Clinton, having come from modest means herself, could be the poster person for populism in the US. This nonsense coming from the GOP on this issue needs to be addressed head on, the same way the nonsense that one can’t raise a lot of money to win an election so one can reduce the influence of money in elections needs to be called for the bullshit that it is. Screaming “hypocrite” all the time is tiresome and pointless.

    Sometimes he’d flip flopped on his flip flops and ended up back at his original position.

    That’s what “flip flop” means, or at least meant before those determined to dilute it of its meaning, and damn thoughtful changes of mind in the process, bastardized it. Don’t help them.

    God protect us from women who want coffee.

    “…she is smiling with her mouth, but her eyes are saying, ‘Where’s my latte?’”

    Whereas Mitt smiles with his mouth while his eyes are saying ‘I already have my latte, and everything else I want, so no one and nothing else matters to me. Where’s my talking-points for today?’

    A blind, toothless attack dog with a bad case of mange, ought to be put down out of mercy.

    Its not often you see someone consistently get worse with practice for as many years as Mitt has.

    [T]he Donald is back in and I believe that he leaves Mittens in the dust for clue-less-ness and self-aware-ness.

    The Grauniad is already snarking about him, Donald Trump’s bid to be president: as ridiculous as his hair: “The multi-billionaire plans to take back the US from the Chinese (no, we didn’t know they had it either), build a wall to keep out the Mexicans, and slash spending on education”.

  • grumpyoldfart

    Politicians talk like that because they know that most Americans are not even slightly interested in complicated, hard to understand policies. All they want to hear is that Clinton has a false smile and Huckabee’s son tortures animals. Best story-teller gets to be president.

  • D. C. Sessions

    Have we ever had a political candidate at this level so lacking in self-awareness as Mitt Romney?

    Hard to tell if he’s personally lacking in self-awareness or (correctly) counting on the public to not notice and the media to not call him on it.

  • naturalcynic

    Yeah, but Mittens takes his decaf.

  • sigurd jorsalfar

    Uh. Okay. What is that even supposed to mean?

    It means, Ed, that she’s horribly horribly elitist, foreign, and liberal. Just like Obama who can’t walk into a room without asking, “Where’s my arugula?”

  • birgerjohansson

    I am not sure if latte is haram. If it is, it would explain why the atheist muslim does not drink it…

    BTW is mittens an android or a robot? I have never figured that one out. I think a robot would be forbidden to do harm.
