In other news Mitt Romney talked to college students today, just like President Obama. See if you can spot the difference.

"Oh God make it stop! Please can somebody drag me back to class? I can't feel my legs anymore!"
Wonkette even has a portion of the riveting speech:

What we found was they were spending a lot more than I thought on copy paper and toner and supplies and software and so forth.

    A real snooze-fest. He'd better get a VP who energizes the base.

      Every morning Paylin is biting her fingernails, and screeching "pick me, pick me" at anyone connected to the Romney camp.

      The delusional batshit harpy of Wasilla just cannot believe that Willard would not want her as a going rogue, gaffe making font of utter bullshit.


      To this day, the feckless idiot thinks it's just another beauty contest, and a wink and a stuffed bra will get her to the VP slot.

    3. Anonymous5:50 AM

      A.J. Billings, I think you are right!

      On her stupid bus tour, she drove through dangerous weather just so she could upstage Romney's announcement to run for president.

      She runs after men with power and money, confident that her fading beauty queen looks will blind them to her ignorant, vindictive personality. She was able to pull the wool over ol' man McCain, but only if Romney is truly DESPERATE would her have on his ticket. She is poison and he knows it.

    Oh, good!

    --Stay boring
    --Keep flip-flopping
    --Keep doing clueless things like the dog on the roof
    --Keep reminding us of your Bain days ("I like to fire people")
    -- Keep telling us how much you are like us with your gazillion $ security blanket (while ours is threadbare).

    Maybe a few more people will think it over and realize how NOT LIKE YOU our dear POTUS Obama is! Yessss.

    Let me out of here. Dear God, please. Make. It. Stop. Please? I'm fuckin' dyin' here. Please shut him the fuck up. I don't care if I get credit for being here. I'll take the fuckin' D. I don't care. Just, Lord, please make it go away!

  6. Probably the only part that got their attention was when he told students they could borrow $20,000 or so from their parents if they were willing to "take a risk" on their futures. Borrow from their parents? The two 50-year olds sitting in the kitchen clutching their hair trying not to cry because they're at the end of their COBRA eligibility and they can't figure out how to get health care and still nobody has a job? Those parents?

    As someone said, Mitt happens.

    1. Anonymous4:27 AM

      That's us. Husband had a heart attack last year at 43, COBRA runs out in August, so we lose the privilege of paying $1,300 a month for our health care coverage and no one will insure my husband so he will have to go on a threadbare state plan. He works contract work (read: no benefits, no job security), I work full time for a very small company that cannot get insurance that will cover us because of above. Daughter is starting at her dream college with a large ($100,000) scholarship that still leaves us shy $11,000 a year in tuition, another $12,000 for room and board. So IF she could just borrow that $20,000 that we don't have she wouldn't make it through freshman year with it. Maybe we can borrow the other $60,000 from Mitt. Oh, and can he put us on his health insurance? Of course we could have told her to go to a public school but we didn't have the heart. We'll take a home equity loan and scrounge to help make it happen, and we are grateful for the scholarships. But Mitt Romney will never understand a day in the life of a family like ours, and he couldn't give a flying fuck.

    2. Anonymous6:21 AM

      Absolutely. We have some of the same challenges you describe, and it's scary as hell. Who is writing his speeches - are they insane?

      This stuff about borrowing from (already struggling) parents for college and to start a business afterward is beyond tone deaf! He just cannot relate to the average American, nor they to him. From different plants entirely.

      This will haunt him in the coming months. Too huge an issue to have screwed up.

      I am sure the Obama camp is thrilled he is that STUPID.

    "They could borrow $20,000 or so from their parents..."

    I see the "I bet you $10,000" Mitt showed up
    to speak at the college.

    20k? That's the yearly salary for many Americans, Mitt.

  11. All I can say to this is....

    How much MONEY did Meh(H/T to anonymous in the Nancy French thread!) Romney have to pay those students to sit there and listen to him to drone on like a hive of angry bees!!

    Enough for them to finish college maybe? Lord I hope so!

    At least Baldy makes her screeches somewhat entertaining with her facial grimaces, knuckle pointing, and the anticipation of waiting to see if a small rodent peeks his head out of her wild wigs and waves at the TV camera!

    Meh should just pass out 100 dollar bills and just cut out the speeches...shit at least the students could get drunk on old Meh! LOL!!!

  12. One of the funnier comments on Wonkette:

    "Those who aren't asleep look like they wish they were dead."

    Where they being punished for some reason? To have to sit through that boring dribble that Meh( stolen from Gina above) Rmoney was droning about?

    The volume levels at the colleges President Obama spoke at this week as part of his campaign to keep student loan rates down hovered somewhere between “NBA playoff game” and “supersonic jet.” Mitt Romney’s address Friday at Otterbein University was not quite there yet.

    Mostly sticking to his go-to stump topics, Romney delivered a sleepy address to students at the Ohio school, some of whom seemed to struggle to stay awake. Sometimes it was a losing struggle.

    Here is a mashup of President Obama and Mittens with the students.

    Bristol Palin is setting the record straight about ‘putting a ring on it’ vs ‘trial marriage’ (getting dick). Despite her past struggles of tagging hockey players, having a child out of wedlock and pretending to be a Christian, Bristol is super totally not “doing it” with the hot dude your Wonkette said Bristol was totally doing it with.

    Bristol is a good Christian, but now she wants to show how bad it is for everyone else but her to get it without being married first. Bristol, through her years of experience, has found the only way to have sex and be ok with it is to put a shiny piece of metal on her finger and getting the ‘do it’ from Jesus.

    “In fact, you may have even recently heard rumors I’m living with my boyfriend. As that gossip spread a couple of weeks ago, people all over America were applauding me for – finally! – coming to my senses and abandoning my no-sex-until-marriage policy. Others are saying that me shacking up with my boyfriend is the height of hypocrisy.

    Here’s the thing. It’s not true. As I mentioned before, I recently bought a home across the lake from my parents’ house. While it’s under renovation, I’m actually living in an apartment on their property. Rest assured — there’s no way on earth my mom and dad would allow a guy to spend the night here with me.”

    There is something we are trying to remember, about Levi Johnston maybe? Oh well.

    The Palins have always been very strict parents and having a man spend the night at Bristol’s place is simply out of the question. Those principles have been passed down to Bristol and now that Beyonce, Jesus and the New York Times have weighed in, she now has all the resources needed to form the ‘New York Jews for Jesus Singing Brigade For Putting A Ring On It.’

    “But even if I weren’t temporarily living on their property, I wouldn’t move in with someone. Why? Well, new evidence reported in the New York Times suggests what the Bible has already told us: living together before marriage does not lead to happiness.

    These so-called “trial marriages” hurt men, women, and children. So, all of you girls who’ve said yes to sex in the wrong context know this: you don’t have to say yes to living with someone in the wrong context too. I guess it’s unanimous. Because now we have the Bible, the New York Times, and even Beyonce suggesting the best way to secure relationship success is to… “put a ring on it.”

    Like a cock ring maybe. Those can be very helpful, we are told. Wonkette regrets its previous error.

      However, no one really cares about Baby Bitch, or he skanky mom. Now when the Bitch blows Willard for the VP pick, that will be newsworthy.

      And Bristol puts yet another fairy tale out there and expects people not to look at each other and go "what???"

      Bristol, hunn, you are an adult now. You don't need Mommy's permission to do, or not do, anything. But you know that don't you? And you haven't been listening to a word out of Mommy Dearest's mouth unless it comes with a pay check for years have you?

      No go sell your BS somewhere else. While we appreciated the chuckle, we aren't buying your brand of poop.

    5. Anita Winecooler8:07 PM

      Hi Bristol,

      I think what you're referring to as "a ring on it" is actually a circumcision scar or wear and tear. As for boinking in the Palin Compound, you've disproved that with what's his name again? Levi.

      Try selling stupid somewhere else.

    His plan is to copy everything President Obama does and FAIL! Look at the kids and compare them to the photos of President Obama doing the same thing. Mitt is stiff and not naturally warm and friendly! Plus, he thinks he's better than others and it shows in a very negative way!

    Get out and vote for President Obama and VP Joe Biden in November!!!!

  23. Anonymous1:10 AM

    Yeah, the college kids could tell their parents (who no doubt watch Hannity, anyway) to do what he says, and content themselves with eating RICE, which is chock full of life supporting goodness.

    That might free up some bucks to send their kid to school.

    There's no future in sight for any help if a putz like Romney is elected.

  25. Anonymous3:32 AM

    Well, Meh did say he "likes to fire people" Not once did he say "fire people UP" which he obviously can not do. Plastic man is phony, I question his motive for getting into the WH. He is not doing it to help people, since he obviously does not like anyone. Seeing the way he looks at his wife, I doubt if he even likes her!! Moving on to Bristles, what about her trial marriages in California and Arizona? Gino the leech was living with her at both places, so he does not have a real job, either. Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant with her second child and living with her unemployed babydaddy, so if it works for the K's, why not the P's?? Isn't the Palin family aspiring to be the Klondike Kardasians?

    Thank you for not showing Mitt's ridiculous "Obama Isn't Working" banners. My blood pressure must spike when I see them, and they are always with Mitt, sort of like Ann and the assorted grandboys. And this from a man who did enough work to keep his inherited millions intact, was governor for one term and got some progressive things accomplished which he know denies. Come on, Mitt, you have a chance to return the GOP to the middle, or at least the center right, instead of this Norquist far far loppy right that accomplishes nothing for anyone. Find another about something positive? You know: "Mitt Works" might work. Until you open your mouth.

    Here's an idea: why doesn't Mitt, and who won't his PACs, loan $20,000 to each college student who needs help?
    He won't even notice, he'll sew up the youth vote without looking as though he's actually buying votes, and the ends are the same -- more college graduates, which he seems to think is an o.k. goal.

    Get Donald Trump and his pals at Bain and the other plutocrats to do the same. Maybe $20,000 year.

  29. Anonymous5:24 AM

    John McCain need to "energize" his campaign so he picked "hottest governor". Romney will need more than a Palin to juice up his campaign. And he's a LONG way from getting to make the pick. As he gets more desperate to wake up his "base", Romney will have to get more and more extreme. Standby for Romney to launch more salvos against women's rights.

  30. I had to Google Otterbein University as I have never heard of it. Private Methodist university. I though it was Otterbrain University.

    This is a perfect example of what we have to look forward to in the coming campaign. The only interesting thing is that it will make for a good drinking game: every time Meh flip flops, take a big gulp. Guaranteed inebriation or coma within five minutes.

  31. Anita Winecooler8:14 PM

    Meh is so pathetic, Did anyone tell him it was a school for the deaf?

    Actually, it's pretty funny. The close up shot and the kids all lined up in seats doesn't look "excited" to see him. They look like zombies compared to the crowds our POTUS gets.

  32. One question for Anne Romney: At night, does Mitt sleep in the box he was shipped in?


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
