McCain to Romney critics: 'Lighten up!'
The Hill ^ | March 9, 2012 | Josh Fatzick

Posted on 03/11/2012 9:45:37 AM PDT by bkopto

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Friday defended GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney from critics who mocked him for calling himself an "unofficial Southerner" at a campaign stop the previous day.

"Now they’re attacking Romney for joking about learning to say “y’all”? According to the left, no one can have a sense of humor - lighten up!"

In Mississippi, Romney told the crowd that his bodyguard, a Mississippi native, was turning him into an "unofficial Southerner." "I'm learning to say 'y'all' and I like grits, and strange things are happening to me!" the former Massachusetts governor added.

Critics were quick to jump on Romney's comments as just a poor attempt to connect to Southern voters, something observers have said he has struggled to do so far in his campaign.

MSNBC morning show host Joe Scarborough, who was born in Georgia, suggested Friday morning that Romney's Southern impression wasn't fooling any true Southerner.

McCain is the main reason I won’t vote for Willard.
Well, I mean other than Willard’s flaming liberal history which there is no evidence anything has changed.

“Now they’re attacking Romney for joking about learning to say “y’all”?”


A bus load of politicians were driving down a country road when all of a sudden the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an old farmer’s field. The old farmer after seeing what happened went over to investigate. He then proceeded to dig a hole and bury the politicians.

A few days later, the local sheriff came out, saw the crashed bus, and then asked the old farmer, “Were they all dead?”

The old farmer replied, “Well, some of them said they weren’t, but you know how them politicians lie.”

UP YOURS McCain!!!

You pathetic progressive piece of RINO-sh*t, you threw the '08 election, you stab conservatives in the back every chance you have, America would have been better off if those air-to-missile operators in 'Nam had managed to snuff your ass with TWO missiles instead of one.

Yeah, c'mon and call me mean spirited but each every one of you folks know that if McCain had died in 'Nam, this Nation would be far better off today, I'm only saying out loud what everyone else is thinking. Our own Founder called McCain a 'treasonous bastard' and he was right then, and he's right today.

P*ss on you McCain! You and all your progressive-liberal RINO-butt buddies.

The language of many herein is ghetto talk.

I’d rather we trash McSane using words which are not vulgar. Harsh and point blank, but this is no need for swearing.

No no no... You’ve got it all wrong. Now J. D. Hayworth, there’s the guy they should never return to Washington. McCain’s a-okay to the great citizen’s of Arizona. Gag...

I’ll never figure out how folks could fall for that one.

Ahhh, welcome oh Marquis of Queensbury. Oh how dainty art thou ironed white lace hankerchiefs.

The Hell it ain't.

. . . perhaps it’s time for him to retire and work on his stamp collection?

As a stamp collector, I demand an apology for this insult.
