“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..”

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.

Desperation.

Romney doubles-down on showing just how much disdain he has for "simple" folk, you know, the base of the GOP, conservatives.

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.

Yes...but is he doing his socks on a scrub board?

When they left the laudromat, they stopped by the out house before returning to their cave.

Careful!

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.

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.

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.

““I’d like to see what he actually told Freddie Mac,” Romney told reporters...“Don’t ya think we ought to see it? This is a big issue. We’ve got a Washington insider talking about Freddie Mac, let’s 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.

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.
