Skip to comments.Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
Posted on 05/27/2011 4:00:33 AM PDT by 1010RD
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.
Not wanting any of the leftover slices to go to waste, Romney sent the remaining pies to where else but President Obama's Chicago reelection headquarters.
Asked if the pies actually made it to Obama's HQ, a campaign source said that they had.
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."
Presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty also took a swipe at Obama today with this tweet: "@barackobama sorry to interrupt the European pub crawl, but what was your Medicare plan?"
NB: the direct attacks and mockery of Obama. This is an important change over 2008. GOP candidates cannot allow Obama to remain untouchable. He's got to be personally attacked as aloof, dangerously stupid and ineffective as an American President.
'Honest' ad hominem attacks can be clearly and strongly supported by Obama's own record of run-of-the-mill gaffes and his actual policies. Obama is a mix of the worst parts of Carter (are there any good parts?), Nixon, and Clinton.
Regardless of who your personal candidate is, every candidate, particularly current front runners need to attack Obama relentlessly. That will break the ice for our eventual nominee.
Kid stuff. Embarrassing.
Yup. What a sense of humor! The hairnet Romney wears to bed each night must be wound too tight.
And this is funny, how?
You’re wrong. You’ve got to draw attention, directly and personally to the man and his failures. These cannot be just policy missteps, but must point out that the person himself is incapable of leading.
Ignore Romney and think on the importance of destroying Obama as a viable alternative in the minds of the mushy middle. That’s the ground we’re fighting for.
God help us if either of those losers are the nominee.
Either you get it or you don’t.
RINOS!! SNORRRRRRRE.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzz
Must be an inside joke.
Neither is funny or humiliating of Obama. You want funny? Watch how people on FR do it. Even Trump knew how to do it right.

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."

Romney - the Magic RINO:
"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.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
What the hell ... I kind'a like the idea of sending sloppy seconds to zero's crowd.
That's the way they've treated us for two years. We are mature politically, but we don't enjoy the 'game' the way the enemy does, because we're 'so above them'
America's time is short unless dramatic changes occur.
I get it and I think what Romney's doing is good. I especially like the European pub crawl remark, 'cause that's exactly what O&M are doing!
That said, I do agree that Obama should be attacked forcefully, directly and constantly.
Candidates that fear the race card need not apply.
Thanks 1010RD. This is crust what I needed on this lovely Friday. :’)
This sounds like something McLame would have done.
1. No RINOS
2. Conservatives need to fight back.
No one cares about sellout RINOs trying to do something funny.
Agreed. A thousand cuts. Minimize NObama, ridicule him for his lack of leadership and his aloofness.
Show the emperor with no clothes. The more people that point and shout the more notice it will get.
I don’t get how sending leftover pizza to Obama is mocking him.
Excellent and Reagan used these tactics and so did GHW Bush. They’re extremely effective.
The point isn’t who did it, but that it is being done. Our GOP field has to destroy the idea that Barak Hussein Obama can even BE President.
That’s the path to victory.
The point is neither is funny. It’s what boring people that are trying to be funny do and it’s really lame on the mocking scale. Again, watch and learn what we do on FR and you will undersand what mocking Obama entails.
The pizza thing went nowhere, but Pawlenty’s “sorry to interrupt the European pub crawl, but what was your Medicare plan?” is excellent.
You’re right. An ad incorporating the best FR posts attacking Zero would be effective and draw the ire of the Obmanistas. We should contribute to publishing one.
OK, anybody who knows you knows you don’t sleep in a tub in the marketplace, but you do think.
Ignore the names for a moment and pretend they’re just generic GOP candidates for President.
It is the tactic that matters. Nobody would swipe hard at Obama in 2008 until it was too late. You’ve got to bloody him starting now. It has to be public and it has to be personal.
What can Obama do? How can he respond? The actions/remarks are true and insulting, appropriately insulting. We have to think strategically if we’re to win.
The MSM, DNC and Obama have spent a lot of time, effort and money destroying Sarah Palin such to the effect that she has to reintroduce herself if she’s to be the nominee. We need to do that to Obama, only he cannot reintroduce himself. He’s over saturated and losing control of his own message.
That needs to become an avalanche. You’ve got to pin reality on him and keep doing it until it hurts. Obama is kid stuff, Obama is amateurish, Obama is a fool and his policies are dangerous.
We get it, but the mushy middle doesn’t. Had Romney really gotten it he’d have met with blacks in Chicago and promised DC style vouchers. The GOP won’t win Illinois, but you can suppress the black vote and force black leaders to refute what their base wants. That’s winning politics.
Think about it.
This is their plan?
Hey Mittens, I’ve got your ideas for how you can attack Obama relentlessly. You can thank me later.
1. Demand Barky’s impeachment and removal from office for initiating a state of war against Libya without the approval of Congress in violation of the Constitution.
2. Demand Barky’s impeachment and removal from office for running a racist Justice Department in violation of the Equal Protection Clause as evidenced in the New Black Panther case.
3. Demand appointment of an independent counsel to find out what role Barky, Holder and their goons had in the Gunwalker scandal.
4. Demand that Barky release all of his college and passport records, have the birth certificate examined by a forensic expert and appoint an independent counsel with subpoena power to determine if he has defrauded the American people over his Constitutional eligibility.
That’s just off the top of my head.
Sending leftover pizza is something “good sport” losers like Dole or McCain would do while the Marxists are trying to rip the friggin’ throats out of people like Sarah Palin.
Well considering we effed up the medicare proposal from Ryan by not marketing it to the public correctly a Republican tweeting about no Obama medicare plan reminds voters that Republicans have one that “is going to kill old people” since we haven’t been able to tell seniors that we are saving medicare. It does nothing for us.
Right, Obama’s entire European trip is meant to make him “look” Presidential, yet he actually is the President. He’s that weak and he knows it.
Every GOPer needs to take up the ‘pub crawl’ mantra. Boehner should beg Obama to come back and lead.
He just lost his own budget vote 0-97 in the Senate. He’s a loser, but the Euro trip is his distraction. Pin that on him and hard.
One other thing. Pawlenty should have tweeted, “Pardon to interupt your pub craw but there are people dying and homeless in the Midwest. Where are you Mr. President?”
That said, I do agree that Obama should be attacked forcefully, directly and constantly.
Candidates that fear the race card need not apply.
That's what I'm talking about. We cannot let our pundits and media personalities lead the way anymore. Our candidates need to pummel Obama - both on record and to the man directly. He's a loser and America will not tolerate a loser.
The media can only defend by lying, but the mantra breaks it out. Sarcasm cuts deeply and hard, particularly when it is true. There is no refutation and we destroy his reputation.
I know how to mock, but for the most part the GOP doesn’t. Have you payed attention to them say over the last 30 years?
FR is a thin slice, though excellent, of the American political landscape. Our mockery of Obama must go mainstream.
The gloves need to be off and our candidates must lead the way. Otherwise we lose.
Yeah, but Romney has better hair than Trump, therefore he is more qualified. /s
Now we know what he does with the cmpaign money he collects. Buys too much Pizza and feeds the democrats.
Typical RINO. He could have sent it to the Salvation Army and converted the Pizza into republican votes.
Agreed. Romney's gesture just looks "chummy", whereas Pawlenty hits Obama on two fronts: 1) the "permanent vacation" mode he seems to be in, and 2) his habit of criticizing others without offering a reasonable alternative.
Point to T-Paw on this one.
Believe it or not, T-Paw is really resonating with some disgusted dems.
1 & 3 are your best ideas.
1 is effective because the Libya war is illegal and dumb policy. Obama cannot defend it. The MSM will try by trying to shift the meme to human suffering, but that will just make it worse for Obama because you can hit him with Iran, N Korea, Burma (Myanmar) and just about anywhere in Africa.
3 works very well because it is true and a real scandal. Our candidate must declare that he will investigate every illegality committed by the Obama Administration (he’s got to name them).
This will make the looniest libs nuts. It points out a major failing of Obama - they wanted him to arrest Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld et al. and send them to jail (or execution -their one exception to the death penalty are conservatives).
So you get gun owners and middle America, plus you suppress Obama’s base. Good, very good.
Right, exactly right. Obama’s a showy fakir. All hat and no horse.
He’s an incompetent and the world knows it. How do we get Americans to know it? Mock the man relentlessly.
It is the path to victory and the reality is it makes Palin’s job easier.
There's STILL no documentation for zero nor Bin Ladin's death.
SOMEone doin' SOMEthin' is better than NObody doin' NUthin'
Palin would have enough brains to sprinkle some arsenic on it first.
That is excellent, but this is a start. These guys are cowards, but if they’re willing to do it I’m saluting them.
We need to fire on all fronts at one person - Obama.
I’d follow up with every Midwestern disaster that Obama’s ignored. Obama’s the real racist. He isn’t for America, just his own lackeys.
Oh, I can believe it. If the GOP establishment were smart, they’d unite behind Pawlenty instead of Romney.
But “smart” isn’t exactly a word normally associated with the GOP establishment, is it?
That’s exactly what we need. We’ve got to suppress his voters and capture the mushy middle at the same time.
Nope, she gets it better than you. Palin knows just how much the death by a thousand cuts hurts. She’s lived/living it.
What’s significant about this is that our ‘front runner’ is cutting. We need them all to cut and cut and cut.
If you like Palin, you’ll applaud this. She’s been marginalized as a crack-pot, extremist conservative. Reality is much different than that.
The MSM touts our RINOs as reasonable, thoughtful and moderate. That they attack Obama actually moves the boundaries for the entire race and quickly. Now, Palin’s comments are mainstream too, do you get it?
let Herman Cain control the pizza jokes....You stick with being the architect of zer0bama Care so we can all know where you stand...
...what a friggin doooooshbag
I’m with you. I hate the panty-waist tactics of the GOP, but you can be morally superior while hammering away at the very real weaknesses of Obama.
Reagan did it and destroyed Carter. Obama is Carter Cubed and that just makes for an even richer target.
Finally. Someone who 'gets it'! ;)
(That's exactly what I thought, too.)
Tomorrow night mittens is going to gather some of the girls and go "egg" obama's house!
Both of these socialists make me sick.
Well socialist Romney is a big fan of spreading the pie around...
What’s next? Calling the HQ and asking for Prince Albert in a can? Asking if Dick Hertz is there?
Feel free to add your favorite prank call if I’ve missed one
