Skip to comments.Mitt Romney's Newest Spokesman Is Already In BIG Twitter Trouble And Deleting Tweets
Posted on 04/23/2012 6:41:27 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
Richard Grenell, a new foreign policy and national security spokesman for the Mitt Romney campaign, has embarked on quite the deleting spree over the weekend.
Almost 1,000 of his tweets? Gone. His personal website? Gone.
Why? Probably something to do with the fact that a lot of his tweets have been controversial. He tells Politico:
my tweets were written to be tongue-in-cheek and humorous but I can now see how they can also be hurtful. I didnt mean them that way and will remove them from twitter. I apologize for any hurt they caused.
Some of his favorite targets: Various members of the media. Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Rachel Maddow. Even Newt Gingrich and wife Callista.

What did Romney expect? Hire a homo and you’re going to get a chatterbox of tacky, condescending, sarcastic jokes replete with sexual innuendos. Plus, a damned gay-marriage activist. Brilliant.
As if there’s not enough telltale signs for me to politically run as far away from Romney as humanly possible. But what the heck should one expect from a blasted Massachusetts liberal?
Meanwhile, on another thread, Mitt’s man, Guy Molinari, is calling Newt’s backer in Buffalo NY, Carl Palladino, “the crazy man”.
You are a GOP Official.
The incumbent opponent is an incompetent America-hating bozo.
You want to lose this election.
How does your script differ from what has played out the last 8 months?
( not much, eh?)
I guess Perez Hilton wasn’t available so Romney hired the next best “thang”.
Has the GOP ever nominated a bigger buffoon than Romney? Yeah, I know he isn’t nominated yet, but the handwriting is on the wall.
Romney has all the brains of Joe Biden and half the charm.
LOL. That's funny. I don't care how much you support Newt.
a (dedacted) gay-marriage activist
a (dedacted) gay-marriage activist hiring a (dedacted) gay-marriage activist
Whats so strange about that ???
Willie Mitty wants to surround himself with like minds...
You’re complaining about nominating a buffoon and supporting Santorum?
What a disaster. Well, the GOP e wanted to run the election this year and shut out the Tea Party, and this is what they get. Fagsie McGee and his boss Wonder Willard coming out of the closet to mandate gay marriage that is so gay it has has rainbows shooting out of its arse.
