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......................

Hey, ya gotta understand that if...
...the Zion Mormons won't let us "Gentiles" into their sacred, secret temples after they've been cleaned from post-open house exposure,
...ain't gonna allow us peons...
...to clean their magic peed-on underwear...
...that's also "secret" and supposedly "sacred."
Now you Mormons wanna 'xplain how it is that this underwear remains "sacred" after it's been streaked on...or yellowed-out...etc.???
I bet Perry could.
Its the government crap we need to identify and eliminate.
And the gov't crap is standing on hay - it's called romneycare.
#2 - Catherine, it’s so deeply desperate yet FAKE I could cry at how pathetic it is...if I could stop LAUGHING!
Oh no! But thanks for the ‘on the ground’ report.
I think we all appreciated the ‘funnies’ on this thread. Thanks.
What's wrong, Thurston? Gilligan sick or on strike?
Yeah, what happened to the little cup that came with the detergent? You supposed to use that, Mitt
The box looks like it's a laundromat sized portion.
Doesn’t every guy wash clothes wearing a freshly starched white dress shirt and pressed blue jeans?
“This is as bad as Dukakis in a tank...”
And a teeny tiny box of Tide it is. That stuff is not cheap! Where are they? That CAN'T be their home.
“#2 - Catherine, its so deeply desperate yet FAKE I could cry at how pathetic it is...if I could stop LAUGHING!”
It almost makes you feel sorry for the dweeb, doesn’t it, lol? ALMOST. ;)
An illegal that got deported?
My mistake. I was thinking of John Kerry in 2004. I can't keep my rich Massachusetts liberals straight!
One of the best anti-Mitt videos.
Exactly what I was thinking, who does their laundry in a crisp, white buttoned-down collared shirt? Most people are in sweat pants and t-shirt on laundry day. And who has a commercial soap dispenser on their wall?
Come on, folks. Don't let the hatred get in the way of common sense.
Yes, this is probably a photo op. But the comments being made only provide evidence to those who believe that the tea party is a bunch of hateful hicks.
Dumping ??? Not measuring it out ??? did he know what it was ??? His first time at washing clothes ??? Looks like its his first time washing clothes. He holds the soap box so awkwardly. Yeah, what happened to the little cup that came with the detergent? You supposed to use that, Mitt. Is the box of Tide upside down, lol?
I have done enough traveling to recognize a hotel laundry room. You know, they sell single-load boxes from vending machines there? Doesn't really matter which end you open it up from, you are just going to dump the whole thing in there. And they don't come with little cups. But I agree he is holding it funny, like it is something he hasn't done much of.
what do they need 2 washers for ??? Anybody else have an automatic paper towel dispenser in their laundry room?
Most hotels laundry rooms have multiple washers. And a sink of some sort. And around my house we divide our laundry into colors (although they both seem to be loading whites).
Ill bet you $10k that Romney couldnt tell you what kind of hay that was to save his life.
Have we come down to this? Heck, I couldn't tell you what kind of hay that was either. Do I need to turn in my conservative card? From the responses, even those that self-select to answer didn't know for sure. Are we going to ask him what kind of wood the podium is made from?
Folks, there are real issues to talk about. Romneycare, for starters. Flip-flopping on issues for next. This kind of petty critique, especially flawed petty critique, makes us look foolish.
Well......Romney started it with this ridiculous photo op.
I’m still trying to figure out the connection to Romney’s photo Op and the Tea Party.
Complaining about a sink with a soap dispenser in the shot just make us look like third graders in the school yard. Complaining about the size of the box just makes us look like ignorant fools.
