Craig, He wouldn’t have thrown you under the bus if you hadn’t been in the back of the bus peeking out the hole in the toilet door......

Apparently he needs to be backed over a couple more times.

Well, he mustn’t have done a very good job because Craig is still whining. Try it again, Mitt.

No, Larry, the bus just had a wide turning radius that happened to encroach on the spot where you were standing. And the backing up and running over you again? Like I said, the bus had a wide turning radius, so it didn’t quite make the turn the first time and had to back up and then go forward again. You were still in the same spot because you couldn’t get up after the first time you got run over, so you got run over again. What? You say this explanation doesn’t sound plausible?

Personally I’ve never looked up at a bus’s underside. Did you have a chance to check out the brakes?

Apparently the foot tapping did not stop the first time.

Larry is lucky he didn’t get thrown under the stall door.

I will never vote for a gun grabber like Mitt, but I don’t blame him for putting some distance between himself and Craig.

Maybe he can gig with the Dems—they love victims—especially a homo one.

Larry Craig just shows hows a Republican can receive sympathetic coverage in the Mainstream (Democrat) Media: criticize a Republican.

Has CNN reported on anyone who's been thrown under the bus by the Clintons? No, they hired a Clinton friend to run CNN. We know how this game is played.

Apparently Romney needed to back that bus up a few more times.

Hell hath no fury like a faggot scorned. Don’t be surprised if he soon becomes the darling of the MSM. It would be standard operating procedure for Larry Craig to make sure that every hidden indiscretion by a Republican is exposed before he gets kicked out. The only safe ones will be demoncrat senators and Arlen Specter. Misery loves company and Larry Craig must be one of the most miserable people alive.

Don’t look for him to endear himself to anyone by his behavior. His only supporters will be the fair-weather friendly MSM who will be more than willing to broadcast his every word as long as it bashes a republican.

Is Craig campaigning for Romney? If he wanted to hurt him, shouldn’t he say that Romney’s a really really close friend?

Senator Wide Stance has a point. Romney was right to fire Craig, but he didn’t have to kick him when he was down. Romney linked Craig to Mark Foley, Bill Clinton and the “culture of corruption” in Washington. Presidential politics is a contact sport, but when I watched the video of Romney dumping Craig, I was struck by meanness of his words. It was like he was wiping the sole of his shoe. He was also quick to believe the lies about Rush, and wasted no time to throw him under the bus.
Wide Stance is now a democrat who works for Hillary. Slick Mitt will stick a knife in your back in a heartbeat. I have no use for either.

Apparently, Mitt only cared for the endorsement
and not for the person himself. Not compassionate.

There are ways to do both.
