Mitt Romney Won't Stop Talking About Michigan Trees
Reuters ^ | 2/25/12 | Brent Lang

Posted on 02/25/2012 6:17:43 AM PST by jimbo123

The Republican presidential aspirant was at it again on Friday, praising the greenery of his birth state in advance of next week's primary.

"This feels good, being back in Michigan,” Romney said during a speech in Detroit. “The trees are the right height. The streets are just right.”

The latest bout of rhapsodizing almost perfectly echoes Romney’s earlier comments about the size of the Great Lake state’s timber earlier this week.

As a native Michigander I am a little nervous about him spending this much time talking about my lumber.

The thread from the first time he gave the speech (With video)

Should we now infer that Rotney and Algore have something in common?

He also speaks French, just like that other weird one John Kerry.

Nice work! I remember Huckabee saying that in the 2008 primaries about Romney looking like the guy who fired you.

Do you photoshop? I think this particular topic about the trees calls for a nice Mitt Romney “Tree Hugging” photo.

It is so true how he inspires no one - except for that minority 30 some percent who can’t get past their infactuations.

You know if this guy were the nominee that we would be seeing the pics showing the Saboteur of 1600 with his full-stadium (rom back in 2008) versus Mitt’s Ford Field debacle.

He is their absoulte, unequivical, unMitigated DREAM candidate.

Actually, we are the one’s who are too shallow and ignorant to understand where he’s coming from.

Mitt’s not looking at this the way you or I would look at trees. In his mind he’s probably thinking how -HE- will creat them when he’s a god over his OWN planet.

Cheers.

I don’t get it. What’s wrong with mentioning the nice trees in Michigan? According to the article he’s mentioned Michigan trees twice this year, once in 2008 and once in 2011. BIG DEAL ALREADY! Sheesh....

Even the Cadillacs are right - both of them.

In his own way, Romney is as out of touch with the average American as Obama.

By the way, Mittens wants to raise the age to receive Medicare above 65. Even if we HAVE to do that, which I doubt, NOW is the WRONG time to say that. He’s such an idiot.

What type of stories do you focus on when your candidate is doing well? The guy grew up there - those are the trees of his childhood. Is it an odd way to phrase it? Yes. But having FR filled with stories about Mitt’s views on trees says more negative things about the intellectual interest of a subset of individuals on FR than it does about Mitt Romney.

Mitt sure has flaws as a candidate. If I opposed his as the nominee, I’d focus on those vs. focusing on trees, a 2nd Cadillac, or his underwear.

Do you ever get the feeling that perhaps GOD is working behind the scenes in all of this ?
No amount of money will keep the people from hearing something that they already heard, or unsee something that they already seen ( his stadium debacle ).
Something that has be heard can't be unheard, and something that has been seen can't be unseen.

If a Michigan tree that’s just the right height falls in an empty Detroit football stadium, will anyone hear it?
