Skip to comments.Mitt Romney's weirdness means he can't connect with American voters (Mitt's bizarre bug-squash...)

Romney delivers every emotion anger, humour, sadness, elation in the same giddy voice of a carpet salesman whos only got ten seconds before you close the door in his face.
On Friday, he swung down South and affected love for the region. He called himself an unofficial Southerner because he's eaten grits and learned out to say yall. Then there was a truly bizarre moment when, in the middle of admitting that he knows nothing about agriculture, he broke away mid-sentence to crush a bug beneath his foot. He said, Oh look at that, look at that little guy, there. Got him.

He kind of reminds me of some kind of space alien pretending to be a human being. Everything about him is contrived. For the life of me I can’t understand why anyone would vote for him.
It started the day he was born into a really weird cult.
I have heard nothing from my fellow Southerners but disdain for Romney since his “y’all” blunder....It reminds folks of Hilary’s, “I ain’t no way tired”...Don’t talk down to your audience Mitt....we don’t look up to you to allow you to look down on us.
I bet he insisted his manservant dispose of those shoes after his “true southerner” came out.
Under Romney, retired folks = bugs
And he called them "cheesey grits." Maybe that's their name in Mississippi, but in GA we call them simply "cheese grits."
Obama will turn Romney into a national laughingstock!
” It was like he was wearing an Agar suit.”
Obama will turn Romney into a national laughingstock!
I suppose it is possible. He’s had enough practice on himself.
“The Stepford Candidate”
that was really.....weird
Give that man our nuke codes (but OMG, now obama has them)
Crushed a bug. Oh my goodness that’s never been done before.
But I guess it’s true this makes him an “alien”, etc.
“He kind of reminds me of some kind of space alien pretending to be a human being. Everything about him is contrived. For the life of me I cant understand why anyone would vote for him.”
Obama will use the LSM against Romney the way Romney used negative TV ads against Newt.
But what's weirder still is his cut throat manner of attempting to vanquish his political opponents on the Republican side; here is a guy willing to spend millions relentlessly attacking them, but other that stating “he is out of his league” refuses to state anything derogatory or even negative about the jug-eared socialist a$$ clown who has systematically set out to destroy this country.
I defend all GOP candidates. Stories like this will be used against any nominee and are ridiculous.
It was like he was wearing an Agar suit.
BECAUSE HE’S THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN BEAT obama! DAMN IT!/s
Lol wish I had thought of that one first
Did he just lose the Indian Hindu/Buddhist vote?
Romney is a coward and the Ken Mehlman/Karl Rove/Matt Rhoades mafia is doing his dirty work. Romney is a coward and his gay winged monkey corps is pathetic and sad.
I wonder why that is?
“He kind of reminds me of some kind of space alien pretending to be a human being.” -PM
EXACTLY - Thank you, that was like someone giving me the title to a song I knew, but couldn’t remember.
You have to admit that romneys pandering was painful to watch.The guy is not real.
I understand your point, but the consistently frustrating thing is, they do it to themselves and make it easy for the LMS to jump all over it.
It's weird that after all these years of campaigning, Romney is seriously gaff prone. It's like he's learned nothing. At least just to keep his mouth shut.
I hope it was a cockroach. I h8 those things.
Women are from Venus.
Men are From Mars.
Mitt is from Kolob.
Squashing a bug is “bizarre”?
Youtube: Obama swats fly during TV interview.
He was also pretty pleased with himself.
That sentence speaks volumes about the man. Romney has always reminded me of a slick used car salesman who you just can't trust.
Mittens does seem to have a knack for racking up negative karma and dogma points.
This is why Romney does not have the nomination sealed up yet and why he “isn’t connecting” with the voters as the media says. People don’t trust him. He’s the cheezy grit.
Watch the bug squash video. Your candidate is not normal.
Was it a moose bug or an elk bug?
Mitt Romney: Not for the Little Guy.
“I’m gonna’ vote for him, he said y’all real good”
“Me too, he likes grits”
“Yeah and he’s got a pretty mouf’ too”
Thanks for the Saturday morning laugh!
You can’t make this stuff up.
I think the line was “wearing an Edgar suit”, wasn’t it?
This makes Obammy look “normal”. I want 1980 back.
I say it again for you in French: Quittez Romneybot.
Lord Love a Duck! Reading this thread is hilarious. Somebody get Mitt out of Mississippi before he tries a line from “Pappy O’Daniels Flour Hour”.
“Is you is, or is you ain’t my constitiency?!”
Romney speaks like he’s the infomercial salesman in charge of selling Shamwow to the gullible audience.
The good thing about this Romney gaffe is, it unintentionally reflects on Santorum. Who goes out and blatantly patronizes his audience like that?
Not to defend Romney, but the leftwing media will twist anything and everything about ANY GOP CANDIDATE into a negative to construct a disagreeable caricature to hammer Americans with non-stop - using everything weapon in their arsenal of propaganda. All while covering up and glorifying Obama!
Whether it will be "weird" (translation: Mormon) Romney, "fanatical" (translation: fundamentalist) Christian Santorum or maritally "unfaithful" (translation: politically untrustworthy/ruthless/heartless) Gingrich, they will all be judged unable "to connect with Americans."
FReepers or candidates jumping on the leftwing band in such attacks have already surrendered the November election - by allowing the leftwing media to dictate the terms. Terms that arm the left and disarm its opponents.
To win in November Americans and the GOP candidate's campaign must attack the media's bias and answer media caricatures by fighting fire with fire. They will not win by empowering the Media, by joining in it these attacks in the GOP primary when it favors their candidate.
leftwing band = leftwing bandwangon
