Don’t Worry About a Class War, They Don’t Have Class Here

I certainly don’t think I was alone in cringing when Mitt Romney discussed his five sons’ being lousy little liars when they were small.   I said to myself, “Self, that wasn’t a nice thing for a father to say.”  But anyway, you know who thought that was a great line? Apparently, Romney’s sons. Here’s Josh Romney saying Obama is just like Mitt’s lying little chips off the old block:

Oh wait, he actually just compared the president to an obstinate child? The president of the United States? Huh. Not especially classy.

I could say he’s just trying to be like his dear old dad, but it seems like dear old mom has some pretty choice things to say, too:

Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann, equated President Obama’s campaign to a petulant child during an interview Tuesday after being asked about charges from the president’s campaign that her husband had “lied” during last week’s debate.

“I mean, lied about what? This is something he’s been saying all along. This is what he believes.  This is his policy, these are his statements,” Ann Romney said in an interview set to air Wednesday on Fox News. “I mean, lie — it’s sort of like someone that’s, you know, in the sandbox that like lost the game and they’re just going to kick sand in someone’s face and say, ‘you liar.’ I mean, it’s like they lost, and so now they just are going to say, OK, the game, we didn’t like the game. So to me, it’s poor sportsmanship.

Delightful. As in, completely tasteless.  The far simpler reason for President Obama to call Romney a liar is the constant lying he does.  Hint: Ann, no matter how many times your husband repeats a thing, if it isn’t true, it does not become true by repetition.  And don’t get me started about “poor sportsmanship” when Mitt Romney is a guy who cheats at games with his own family.  That’s just drawing attention to yourselves, dear.

Oh well, I’m not sure why I’m particularly annoyed by what she has to say. I should take a page from Mitt’s book and pay her no mind.

And yes, I know people do frown at criticizing a candidate’s family, and it’s just not done and all that. Well, stuff it. Romney’s campaign has gathered around the family to “humanize” the candidate and soften his edges.  How are they doing?  Don’t they seem warm and fuzzy, now?

I find it kind of frightening that they so believe their own b.s. that they can’t seem to fathom why they’re being called liars.

It just boggles me that these people have faith in anything other than themselves. I wouldn’t claim the Mormons were Christians, but last I heard, they believed in the Bible’s basic tenets, including things like not lying. And TP Christians in the party are so much worse.

Like revealing their hypocrisy much? And doesn’t even bother them how much damage they’re doing to the faith they way everyone else to follow?

Okay, yea, probably not, but it bothers the hell out of me, and is one of the reasons I rarely talk about my faith any more. Last thing I want to be is associated with ANY of these wackos. :P

Let’s see how sportsmanlike Queen Ann and Little Mitt Mini-me Prince Josh are on the night of November 6/7 when Her Ladyship faces the prospect of swilling around their many mansions with her aimless spouse filling in the time till they both turn up their toes.

Anyway, the woman’s as shameless a liar as her old man—“We’ve seen no new jobs.” As if she’d know a job if it jumped up and nipped her on the nose—so it’s no surprise she’d be all “Lied about what?” Everyday life must be pretty damn confusing in a family where nobody knows from the truth.

Seriously, I’ve been pretty hands off about Mitt’s family all things considered, and I’m not about to change that since I don’t see much of an upside to going postal, but I hope now that She Who Must Be Obeyed and The Family are supposedly in the driving seat of Mitt’s campaign, she grabs every interview and TV show that’ll have her. Bump? What bump?

I am appalled, Vixen, simply appalled that you would question these noble patriotic offspring, who are only serving their country the best way Mitt knows how.

That doesn’t prevent my trying to promote “By The Lying Sons Of Romney!” as a Rumproast pledge of omnidirectional fealty.

“By The Lying Sons Of Romney!”

I feel a burst of Longfellow coming on.

Oh, and Memeorandum says “Hi,” Vixen!

Sounds more like something the Mighty Thor would utter, circa 1975. “By the Lying Sons of Romney, does Loki’s duplicitousness know no bounds?”

The far simpler reason for President Obama to call Romney a liar is the constant lying he does.

It’s always projection.

Dame Ann of Stepford and the Clamoring Princelings . . . we’re tired of them now, Team Romney.

We appear shocked that gop presidential candidates, and any other conservative candidate for office for the past 30+ years, tells lies.

Where have you all been?

And expecting the media to call them out? Ha.

“Petulant child” = Ni(Clang!) in MormonMittney-speak.  And both Dame Ann and Son Widget used the term “child”, knowing the dog whistle would be tuned to just the right pitch for the intended audience.

That was Josh?  What happened to Thnugg and Glork?  Or am I thinking of the Palins?

I get why the use of the word “boy” is inflammatory in this context and all that, but I think it spreads the outrage too thin.

Overall the whole thing smacks of entitlement and arrogance, and that extends to all the rabble so far beneath the Romneys, not just those of a certain race.
