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.
