Romney would recite Foxworthy's Dictionary for Rednecks, and eat a turd, to get to be president.

I've never seen a man crawl for an office like he does. That can't be good.

He is very, very strange. This is beyond pandering.

As governor of MA, he didn’t exhibit this eccentric behavior. Something bad is going on with him.

"I like grits"

Ask him what he likes on his grits, and he's liable to say "Grey Poupon".

Romney reminds me of Navin R. Johnson (Steve Martin) in “The Jerk”, trying to dance with his sharecropper family.

I have it on good authority that the first time Mitt saw grits he said,” no thanks, I have someone do my hair.”

Romney: "I like grits"

Some context...

In Canada (where Mitt-Witt and his family spent MANY vacations, including the infamous trip with the family dog strapped to the top of the station wagon), 'grits' is a term used to refer to the Canadian LIBERAL PARTY (the party of that American hating little toad Jean Chretien, Trudeau and the rest of that leftist garbage), so when Romney says "I like grits", he may not be referring to the genuine Southern style that we all love so much.

So many politicians do this sh*t. Whether talking to blacks, southerners or whomever, they think some false effort at talking like them gains acceptance.

That fakery by Hillary in 2008 was priceless. Not only did she try (and failed badly) to effect a black drawl when reading that poem in a black church, but she continued to try to do the “southern girl” thing while campaigning in southern states.

Pathetic, irritating and condescending.

You’re just playing the Marxists’ game. The loathsome Kennedy Family has ten times the money of Romney and was arguably the country’s most ruthless organized crime family in the last century, but it doesn’t matter because few know it. The biggest failing of American conservatives of the last 40 years is failing to create a media and a culture of conservatism that treats it as well as the Rancid Media have kissed the asses of the Kennedys and their assorted grotesque political allies. Conservatives have only themselves to blame.

no I havent...

Thats why he leaves his sleeves rolled down...

but if he wants to be a “I’m not a Southerner but I play one on the stump like a bad bit player”

then he needs to lose those citified long sleeves...

and “buttoned down” ???

GROAN...

we’uns think hes still a phony..

Willie Mitty’s idea of goin country is to leave the chauffeur and the other cars at home and drive one of his Cadillacs...

his wife driving and him sitting in the back...

It’s a disease that technology spread. Even Reagan went from folksy to elevated depending on where he was campaigning. The last pre-media president was Truman. Starting with Eisenhower image became more and more important. In just a few short years Kennedy became the first celebrity president and it hasn’t budged since.

ya know someone ought to tell him hes not in another country when he comes to the South...

we’ve been part of the US for quite some time...

Fer instance Tennessee was a state 100 years before Utah...

TN 1796 the 16th state
UT after 1890

so hes not visitin with peons when he comes here...

Hes hobnobbing with his betters...

so he better be more respectful...

or we wont offer him no white lightnin...

I am from the Northeast. Moved to Texas in 2006. Upon my arrival I used the word “Y’all.” The recipient of my attempt at southern vernacular shook his head and said, you ain’t from around here, are you boy?

They’ll love Romney.

Mr. Tipton: I don’t know.
Vinny Gambini: Well, I guess the laws of physics cease to exist on top of your stove. Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?
