Mitt Romney’s pinch of humor falls flat in N.H. (Later admits being untruthful)
Boston Herald ^ | June 15, 2011 | Gayle Fee And Laura Raposa with Megan Johnson

Mitt Romney’s pinch of humor falls flat in N.H.

"Gov. Mitt Romney. The GOP presidential candidate,
fresh off a win at the debate in Manchester, N.H.,
yesterday popped into Mary Ann’s Diner in Derry,
where he thought he’d win over the waitresses
by pretending one of them tried to grab his butt.

During the photo op in front of the jukebox
with the poodle skirt-wearing gals,
Romney suddenly jumped forward with a startled look on his face,
and said, “Oh, my goodness!”

For the record, not one of startled servers did pinch an inch.

“I would never do that,” one of the tray jockeys
told a reporter from Politico.

Later, Mitt reported that he “was just teasing” the girls at Mary Ann’s,

At the NH debate, Romney was caught cheating
using his earplug when he gave the Hockey game score
after a commercial break, while he was onstage.

Today, he looks sheepish having been exposed
falsely blaming waitresses for a 'money grab'.

That's just psycho. And completely unpresidential.

I can just see one of his “handlers” at a morning briefing saying something like “polls show people think you are stiff and phony, try doing something spontaneously funny to bond with the working class”.

This is the result.

Pathetic.

Just another little item for them to tuck away until after he gets the nomination, then McCain him with it.

Mitt ? why don't you just stick with running some Olympic commission or something, or run for the head of the DNC.

If it was choreographed, it's frightening. Who's advising him?
If it was spontaneous, it's pitiful. This is how you want to get in the news? See how that's all working out for Weiner.
Looser Mitt.
We must do better then this.

I think he looks like 'Rainman' in that photo.

Was he able to tell them exactly how many coffee stirrers spilled out a box that got dropped on the floor?

That was a very stupid thing for Mitt to do, especially in these days of the Wiener. Do it again, Mitt. :)

O’Reilly, last night, kept talking about Romney being the BIG winner with everyone that came on. Then he started in about Bachmann being his running mate, basically dismissing everyone. I was so upset as most guests acted also like it was a foregone conclusion! Ann Coulter kept yapping about Chris Christie who isn’t even running.

MaryAnn's diner: great diner, horrible web site.

My son and I try to get there for breakfast at least once a month. The only thing that I would change is supplying real maple syrup with the pancakes instead of the corn-syrup junk.

Gov. Mitt Romney. The Willard, [t]he GOP presidential candidate,fresh off a win at the debate in Manchester, N.H., yesterday popped into Mary Ann’s Diner in Derry, where he thought he’d win over the waitresses by pretending one of them tried to grab his butt.

Oh, terrific, yet another narcissistic psycho with p*ss poor impulse control, flitting about the country masquerading as presidential timber, except when one of his handlers forgets to slip him his meds. The Willard is a fraud and a liar and a Rockefeller Republican, but I repeat myself. He would be the perfect running mate for the undocumented, pencil-necked Mickey from Nairobi.

This guy is no more natural a personality and politician than he was four years ago, and he’ll likely again record the most dollars spent per vote won in history.

“... while we are tortured daily about the Weiner fellow?”

You think that Mitt would have learned something about the whole Weiner event. People aren’t that keen to sexual scandal. I don’t get how he thought this was a “tease”? Really? I am sure that the waitress having to say “I didn’t do THAT” was a real joy to her. IMHO.

LOL... nobody will ever look nerdier than Dukasis in that tank. Especially when it was moving and his head bobbled back and forth like a dashboard toy in slow motion.

Now Kerry in his bunny suit... that was pretty pathetic, but I can’t call that nerdy.

You betcha!

That was indeed a weiner moment. So much for family values and respect for women.

I'm sure his family thought that was really funny - Dad was out on the campaign trail, and thought some complete stranger was so enamored of him that she would touch his bottom.

OMG, Have we come to this!

Yes I saw that and couldn/t believe it. Two days ago she was strong and respectful on our Sarah and now she pops up on the Faux News channel saying weird things about the the fat blubberosity from NJ - oh yeah that gungrabbing slob who snarked Christine O'Donnell - whatshisname. I don't get it. There has to be some explanation - an insider, tongue in cheek joke - if so, I missed it. Of course, she could have been engaging in some extreme sarcasm, in effect lumping The Willard with Fatty.

He always has that silly grin on his face, there is something just not right with him, thinks he's too COOL to lose.

I believe he also thinks he is just too handsome to lose, "why wouldn't people want this handsome face?", besides it's my turn.

Several Sunday’s ago, on Fox News Sunday, it was all Mitt: “Republicans need to put their idealism away and pick an candidate with a chance to win, the only option being Romney.” They are definitely trying to sway the electorate.

I predict Perry will get the nomination. The people want government reigned in and want a non politician or a Bachmann who is anti UN,big gov,and is for abolishing the IRS, Downsizing the EPA, DOE and so on.. But we will get the same media picked crap.Bachmann said in the debate the first thing she would do is dismantle the EPA.The powers that be in gov and media won’t have it.

I am thinking similar. He is between Romney on the left and Bachmann on the right. That makes him a good 'go to' guy.

I fear the GOP elites will then force him to take a real 'moderate' on has his VP [shades of Reagan and GHW Bush]. That could mean Jeb is hoisted on the electorate. If that happens, I think even Perry-JBush would lose. The Bush name still carries ill feelings with many voters.
