Skip to comments.Romney's offensive gaffe could decide election (vanity)

Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign is in disarray after off-the-cuff remarks at an elementary school appearance were made public today by the Palatine Paw Print student newspaper. Democrats say this could be the end of any chance of winning the election the gaffe-ridden Romney campaign had.
"We know the sky is blue and the grass is green... and it is science that tells us how this is" Romney told the class of students.
One teacher who was present and refuses to be named said "It was shockingly inappropriate" and "If we had known he would veer into that kind of territory he would never have been invited"
"We would never allow our students to limit themselves to what really is, we want them to feel free to use their imaginations in science class just as we do in sex-ed".
Experts we spoke to say that using logic and facts in a classroom can have deleterious affects on children.
Joyce Rogers Chesterson-Smith explains "Focusing on the limitations of the so-called 'real world' at such a young age can close the minds of youth for their whole life. We want them to explore their imaginations and not limit themselves to the artificial constraints of the white male hegemony".
Principal Austin Weiner tells this reporter that since the news of Mitt Romney's comments broke he has been deluged with calls from angry parents. "They feel he has traumatized their children, and we agree of course, we always agree"
One parent who did not want to be identified said he daughter Susie locked her play date out of her room that night "It put her off sex for sure. I'm thinking of suing the school, the county, the state and Mitt Romney. My lawyer says there is millions in this"
Mitt Romney is also alleged to have said that "2+2=4" and that the students were perplexed by this.
A teacher explains "This is the kind of racist and insensitive remark we have come to expect from Republicans, but we thought he would be more reserved in front of children. We all agreed that this was the most blatantly offensive thing that has ever happened here"
The consensus is that this controversy, one of many in the Romney campaign, could finish him off for good.
No, I find them much too adorable to eat.
Also, being a life long southerner, I fear it’s too cold for me there.
If I went there and established the Free Republic of Antartica, it would only be a short time before Evil men smell freedom and come to snuff it out, so may as well face them here.
The only thing I know for certain at this point is that such a show down looms right over the horizon. It could be tomorrow...
Liberals and the MSM are SO lost and helpless at this point, that they are trying to make political capital out of things which, in the normal political process, go under the heading of ‘campaigning’.
Every candidate (Republican OR Democrat) has a right and DUTY to express himself/herself as clearly and succintly as possible ... and that’s just what Mitt is doing.
Don’t like it? Tough!
I don’t know what Romney was thinking. Everbody knows facts and truth have no place in a presidential election.
lol. Why so serious?
did you read the post?
I looked at this posted story here and believed it was real. Things are getting scary I guess.
Irenic-Vaduz- Thank you.
Chris- Yep, Galt’s Gulch was fiction. The Revolutionary War was real.
LOL! Well done satire!
That ‘whooshing’ sound you hear is the point going over your head.
Like the Associated Posers. Might have to crib that one.
I think Associated Posers is a keeper.
Geroni, rhymes with macaroni. Your right it will decide the election ROMNEY WINS IN A LANDSLIDE. You socialist frauds in the MSM have ZERO CREDS. The american people who pay the freight in this country have shut you frauds off. The other side can’t read.
Nice work! This is exactly the angle we need to play up. The truth is offensive to liberals.
I’m just about to post my two cents on this 47% meme.
Oh, and he's one of us.
I think I’ll have my own satirical news service at http://asspos.blogspot.com
Maybe I missed it but what part of what I said makes you think I didn't like what he said. Go look at my posts since this morning and get back to me. As long as Mitt or anyone speaks truth to the evil of obama... I have their back.
