Romney has also now compared Senator Hillary Clinton to Karl Marx.
"Hillary Clinton just gave a speech the other day about her view on the economy. She said we have been an on-your-own society. She said it's time to get rid of that and replace that with shared responsibility and we're-in-it-together society," Romney told the crowd. "That's out with Adam Smith and in with Karl Marx."
James: This guy just can't resist name calling. When a candidate resorts to name calling it shows that they don't have much substance and are desperate. That and it shows their immaturity and inability to act presidential--Romney certainly isn't showing us that he can be a true statesman. Is this the kind of person we want representing us to foreign leaders?
Have you seen this picture of Mitt Romney holding a sign that childishly plays on Barack Obama's name rhyming and sounding like that of Osama? Apparently name calling is all that Romney has to offer--that and flip-flopping on issue after issue. I was upset with Kerry for flip-flopping in 2004 as much as the Republicans yet when it comes to one of their own being an even bigger flip-flopper then Kerry--they remain silent.
Romney's explanation was even worse--he told everyone to "lighten up." Yeah that's really classy Mitt. Tell the families of the victims of 9/11 who support Obama to "lighten up." The presidential candidate dug himself an even deeper hole in saying the following:
"I don't look at all the signs when I'm having my picture taken. I have a lot of pictures taken with people," Romney said. "I don't really spend all that much time looking at the signs and the T-shirts and the buttons. I don't have anything to say about a sign somebody else was holding."
GOI: Wow. Where do I start with this big pile of b.s.?? Well, first off he should look at all the signs that people are holding when he's having his picture taken. I don't want a president who will dumbly take his picture with anyone holding god knows what might be on it. We've had enough of dumb in the Oval Office the last 6 years. The sign could be doctored but I highly doubt it as it was run on MSNBC which surely vets their stories as best as possible.
However, worst of all he tells a whooper of a lie by saying he wasn't even holding the sign when clearly he was when you look at the picture!! What a piece of work. I guess traditional family values include lying.
I'd be just as furious if this was a Democratic in this situation--and especially if he was a Buddhist (my faith). I wonder if Mormon supporters will turn a blind to this or stand up and repudiate Romney for representing their faith in such an ignorant fashion. I hope that they do the right thing and separate themselves from this clown. I wouldn't hold him to such a strict standard if he didn't walk around pounding his chest about family values and how he's such a good Christian. If you think I'm being too hard on the guy by calling him a Christian hypocrite--can you honestly see Jesus holding up such a sign?? Of course not.
There wouldn't be a flap if he had just come out and said that he got caught up in the moment and held up a sign that he shouldn't have and that he in no way supports the logic written on it--and yet he didn't. He seems to be too proud and arrogant to tell us the truth even when it is staring us boldly in the face from that picture!!!
Here is the video of Jared from Buckeye State Blog asking Romney about the incident:
