Skip to comments.Voters head to polls in SC as Mitt Romney belittles Gingrich and does his own laundry
Posted on 01/21/2012 2:02:36 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
COLUMBIA, S.C. Voters battled rainstorms and tornado warnings as they streamed to the polls here today, capping a tumultuous and at times politically dizzying week of events that, by tonight, could potentially reshape the Republican presidential nomination process once more.
Extending a more aggressive phase of his campaign, Mitt Romney today renewed attacks on Newt Gingrich, calling on the former House speaker to release records related to his role consulting Freddie Mac, the quasi-public lending agency that many blame for accelerating the housing crisis.
Id like to see what he actually told Freddie Mac, Romney told reporters after visiting his campaign headquarters. Dont ya think we ought to see it? This is a big issue. Weve got a Washington insider talking about Freddie Mac, lets see what his report was to Freddie Mac, what he said to them, what advice he gave them.
His campaign sent out a press release Happy 15th Anniversary, Mr. Speaker to draw attention to the day 15 years ago when Gingrich was reprimanded by the House for ethical wrongdoing.
Yet while Romney was happy to criticize Gingrich to reporters, he avoided any face-to-face interaction with his rival......
Romney, in a week in which his opponents criticized him for being out of touch, showcased that he was doing one of the most humble chores, washing his own clothes. His son, Tagg, sent out a photo on Twitter of Romney dumping Tide into a washing machine. Ann Romney, dressed casually in a sweatshirt, removed clothes from the next machine......................

LOLOL......::::gasping for breath:::: ROTFL!
But wait, I thought Mitt Romney was “so Presidential.”
Yeah, right. Nothing presidential about “calling on” so and so to release something from many years ago.
Gawd, what a phony.
"I'm running for office, for Pete's sake, I can't have dirty shorts!
“I’m running for office, for Pete’s sake, I can’t have dirty shorts!
LOL! I can’t stand it....
He is, in a Lamar Alexander sort of way. ROTF!
Gotta keep those magic underwear “white and delightsome”.
“Can I git a Huntin’ license hear..?” flop/dud/fail
“I can’t have dirty magic shorts! “
Romney is such a turd. If he’s the nominee, I’m finished with the GOP. I can’t vote for this socialist empty suit.
Wheres Mitt? Gingrich said when he arrived at the restaurant.
Next thing we’ll see, he’ll be hanging curtains.
When they left the laudromat, they stopped by the out house before returning to their cave.
You're not supposed to mention the garmies around here ... and whatever you do, do not post a picture of them!
Besides, deferring to some of the pinged experts, I don't think that you're supposed to wash them. Instead, it is my understanding that you wear them until they are a lost cause. Then you burn them in a holy fire after you cut out the sacred masonic symbols and righteously bury them in a consecrated place.

It’s a good thing there are directions under the lid... Romeny would be lost otherwise. But, the good news is... he can read, comprehend, and act on instructions.
Damn, he is getting desperate. He has clearly contracted Obama photo-opitus.
The common touch.
Romney, gun grabber...
Is he cleaning his private equity record?
Looks like it’s his first time washing clothes. He holds the soap box so awkwardly.
I assure you, if I had several hundred million dollars in off-shore accounts, there’s no way I would be doing my own laundry.
Romney dumping Tide into a washing machine. Ann Romney, dressed casually in a sweatshirt, removed clothes from the next machine......................
Not measuring it out ???
did he know what it was ???
His first time at washing clothes ???
a photo Op ???
was Ann taking out her own clothes or some poor slobs that was strong armed into “lending” their clean ones ???
And if you did, I would have to say you have bad management skills.
No one on the face of the earth believes you wash your own clothes UNLESS you are talking about your “garments” then yes that would be true.
What happened to his personal servant? I remember in 2008 there was a story about some guy who made him PB&J sandwiches.
Yup. Just one of the people, Mitt. I send photos of me doing the laundry to wire services all the time. Another “honest Abe,” except he’s not named Abe and he’s not honest.
Doing laundry with his human family ping! LOL!
“Damn, he is getting desperate. He has clearly contracted Obama photo-opitus.”
Romney IS Obama....just not as personable or conservative.
I’ll bet you $10k that Romney couldn’t tell you what kind of hay that was to save his life.
When he gets his own planet, he won’t have to wash his own clothes.
Is the box of Tide upside down, lol? Five bucks says he thinks that laundry sink is a urinal.
what do they need 2 washers for ???
Do they think youre suppose to do “his N hers” ???
“Romney doubles-down on showing just how much disdain he has for “simple” folk, you know, the base of the GOP, conservatives.”
That’s the bottom line, isn’t it? “Hey, Ann, honey, is this how those rubes really live?”
“Id like to see what he actually told Freddie Mac, Romney told reporters...Dont ya think we ought to see it? This is a big issue. Weve got a Washington insider talking about Freddie Mac, lets see what his report was to Freddie Mac, what he said to them, what advice he gave them.
The contract between Gingrich and Freddie Mac has a ‘no disclosure’ clause. That is publicly knowledge.
Romney is acting stupidly and unethically in calling for Newt to transgress on a contract.
And neither could Newt or Santorum or Paul or Obama tell you what kind of hay that was. And frankly, I am not making my choice based on who is the hay guru. It’s the “government crap” we need to identify and eliminate.
Mitt’s response to the MTV question boxers or briefs? “Neither acttually, mine are magic.”
Just when I get myself calmed down, you have to go and post the pic of Farmer Mitt in the mom jeans with the hay bales. LOL!!
This is hilarious. The big, fancy Boston Globe sent a reporter to little ole South Carolina? HA!
Looks like an alfalfa-grass mixture.
And Newt was working the Chik-fil-A drive through today. Lets quit being silly and focus on issues. Both are just trying to connect with the common man/woman.
He’s so natural! /s
Cleaning up a Magic Underware malfunction???
Hoping the Tide will turn??
This is as bad as Dukakis in a tank...
Mormon garments can (and should) be washed, although most LDS I know wash them completely separate from other clothes but I don’t think it matters.
To dispose of them, the sacred symbols are to be cut out and burned and the rest can be tossed, however some burn the whole things.
Binger, however, uses his as car rags.
What time do the polls close? Maybe Mitt has time to do some grocery shopping :^D
