Zillionaire Mitt Romney Tells Obama To Stop Acting So Rich All the Time

News

Ol' moneybags Mitt Romney is estimated to be worth over $250 million, a rather grotesque embarrassment of riches and presumably the reason why Mittens refuses to release his tax returns, in hope of avoiding a couple of news cycles' worth of "How many thousands of struggling homeowners could Mitt Romney's wealth instantly save from foreclosure, right now?" types of stories. Releasing them would also undermine his favorite bizarre rhetorical strategy, trying to speak Poor. He's unemployed! He's underpaid! And now, he's shivering in the gutter: “[Obama is] in Hawaii right now," he said. "We’re in the cold, in the rain, in the wind because we care about America.” What the hell is he talking about?


Fine, Mitt Romney. But from now on, this means you are never allowed to take a vacation to someplace warm, or even to walk inside a heated building, ever again. We're holding you to it, Mittens!

From the LATimes:

“He’s in Hawaii right now. We’re in the cold, in the rain, in the wind because we care about America,” Romney said, speaking in the parking lot of a grocery store. “He just finished his 90th round of golf. We have 25 million Americans who are out of work, stopped looking for work or are underemployed. Home values have come down. The median income in America in the last four years has dropped by 10%.”

He dismissed the Obama administration’s contention that they stopped the recession from getting worse.

“The other day President Obama said, you know, it could be worse,” Romney said. “Sounds like Marie Antoinette, ‘Let them eat cake.’ ”

Another pro-tip: you may want to try a reference a little more recent and a little more geographically proximate than 18th-century France when you want to "appeal to the little people" next time, Mittens. Maybe something about Justin Bieber and all the Canucks come to steal the good-paying jerbs. [LA Times]

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
