Mitt Romney's Alleged Attacker -- Major Rap Star
TMZ ^ | 02/18/10 | Staff

Posted on 02/18/2010 10:40:18 PM PST by OldDeckHand

The mystery man who was tossed off an airplane for allegedly attacking Mitt Romney has finally been revealed -- it was one of the guys from LMFAO ... and he claims Romney is the one who got physical first!

It all went down shortly after the two parties boarded a flight from Vancouver to Los Angeles on Monday.

According to a video confessional from LMFAO's Sky Blu, it all started when he leaned his seat back while the plane was still on the tarmac ... and Romney, who was sitting behind him, started yelling at him to put his seat back up.

Sky Blu claims Romney then reached forward and grabbed his shoulder ... so he slapped the Presidential wannabeen's hand away. Shortly after, authorities boarded the plane and escorted Sky Blu off the flight ... and the other member of LMFAO got it all on tape.

Yo, Mitt. Next time just push the little button on the arm rest and let the flight attendants do their job.

I wonder if Mitt tried to pull rank on the guy? Some folks just aren’t impressed by good hair!

I doubt the seat manufacturer who originally came up with the idea of a recline button back in the middle of the last century ever envisioned a world in which people are as big as they are now and coach seats are jammed together as closely as they are now. They should just get rid of the recline buttons - no one wants another passenger’s head in their lap.

I once sat behind a guy who was such an A-hole, he wouldn’t even put up his seat when the meal came and I asked him nicely. Of course he was eating HIS meal leaning forward, but I think he was on a little power trip...

What kills me is that, on a plane, if you recline your seat back, you hardly move an inch. The guy in front of you reclines, and their seat back is practically in your lap.

Anymore, I’ll just take the time off and drive!

"Tape?" Do people still say that?

Anyway, I'd love to see this video. Great entertainment potential. :)

And if you happen to be in the last row on certain planes, your seat doesn't recline at all!

I just put up my knee very abruptly and await any reaction.

“no one wants another passenger’s head in their lap.” Why are you over generalizing? The raper was just not Mitts type.

It's at the link, but they don't have it ALL on tape. All it shows is the a-hole being led off the plane. Then he mouths off in his room later. Nothing there to see. Nothing to listen to, either. I watched it with the sound off.

Mitt just isn’t up with the cool black culture, they even drive a car in the reclined position.

Well, sure, I can understand the sentiment about TMZ... but you've got to realize also -- that's why Romney is on TMZ, too... :-)

Romney and TMZ are in the same boat ... LOL ...

Knowing Romney for the liberal mentality that he is, it was hard for me to believe that he wasn't right in there slapping people around... LOL...

And so, since they've got the video evidence of it, I guess Romney is caught for the kind of liberal and stupid person he is.

Two different worlds collide on an aircraft.

I can imagine either one of these two or both saying to the other: “Do you know who I am?!!”

And not a chance that either knows who they are.

What was Mitt doing flying commercial? It's late in the game for him to try and change his image to being the "common man" in order to try and score points against Palin. She is the epitome of the "common man". He is the epitome of the "elite" that the nation has become sick of.

The "Mitt in economy-class" is totally laughable and transparent as hell.

Indeed! If the diagram below is correct, that plane doesn't have any non-coach-seating--so Romney's spokesperson claiming that Romney was sitting in "economy" class (as if there were any other option on that flight) was shamelessly misleading at best.
