CHICAGO, - Potential Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney finished a day of fundraising in Chicago by sending leftover pizza to President Obama's campaigners.
Romney said he enjoyed the deep-dish pizza at Gino's East and sent some to Obama's Chicago re-election headquarters, ABC News reported Friday.
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast. Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team," Romney wrote on his Twitter feed.
The message was accompanied by a picture of a delivery boy heading out of the restaurant.
A source with Obama's campaign confirmed the pizza was received.
Personally I wouldnt give Barry a used stick of gum
I like it.
A smooth move. A backhanded slap. But, what’s a room full of hungry Obamabots gonna do? Turn down some free Gino’s East? No way.
Would have been cuter if it had come from Godfathers. Actually this seems like complete nonsense to me. Am I missing the point?
The last people on earth I would do anything nice for, even as a joke, would be anybody associated with Obama! Those arrogant, elitist, liberal a-holes probably ate the pizza, laughed at what a dope Romney is, then strategized how to crush him like a bug. We need a candidate who is not afraid to be perceived as nice and who doesn’t care what anyone thinks of them, especially the MFSRM! Romney obviously is not this candidate. Get him outa here!
Wonder if the Obama crew tipped him?
“We need a candidate who is not afraid to be perceived as nice”
Correction: We need a candidate who is not afraid to be perceived as tough!”
Lame joke from a lame candidate.
“Please don’t feed the animals”
Nope. Not even remotely funny or mocking to Obama.
HOW ROMNEY IS THAT?
Can I tell them that I was brainwashed?
I don’t get it either. Is there a back story here? Was he thinking “Hey, let’s prank Obama’s staff sending them free pizza”? I don’t get it?
Maybe this was some kind of stupid reference to Merman Cain?
That’s Herman Cain.
I need more coffee!
The message must have been Mittens sent his Massachusetts health care plan to Obama so he might as well send him some pizza.
The way I see it is he gets people to donate to his campaign then he turns around and gives it to the libs. Same thing he’ll do with your taxes.
It shows his true colors even if he was trying to be cute.
I wouldn’t even give them that. They are not worthy of my ball sweat.
I’m with you - this story keeps bouncing around but I feel like I’m on the outside of an inside joke. Is there significance to the pizza or the leftovers? I’m lost.
The Republicans should be inviting Obama to sign the Patriot act on a golf course or basketball court if they want to get a dig in on the “President on Vacation.”
As Church Lady would say, “ Well Isn’t that special!”
Sounds like the Rombots are stooping to the adolescent level of the obamabots...
Libs never turn down something paid for by someone else. That is, after all, their motto.
Take take take.....
now if he’d buried a dead RAT under the pizza, THAT would be funny. Elites must have a more refined sense of humor...
For YEARS, we have wondered:
WHY DOES ROMNEY KEEP HELPING OBAMA and the RATS?
"See! See! He's who you want! He's the guy! Pick him! PICK HIM! NOT SARAH! PLEASE OH PLEEEEZ OH PLEEEEEEEEEEZZZZ!"
The point here is inside baseball. There are rather a lot of under the radar reports recently that Obama is having fund raising issues. He’s not failing to raise money; he’s failing to raise 2008 level money.
Romney’s people know it. They are jabbing with this maneuver.
Romney ALWAYS helps Obama. Always.

Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."

"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.
(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."

Chihuahua Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I also think it's important for us to nod to our pRes_ _ent when he's right,"
we are pleased with his plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
I also applaud our pRes_ _ent
for standing up to the evil auto industry. "
I wonder if they put any extra “toppings” on it.
... if they were dying of thirst.
A totally stupid move..makes no sense..just abouit what you’d expect from Mitt. They should have sent it to a food kitchen/homeless shelter..
