You went the wrong way, King Obama

Whaddya gonna do with this Romney guy, huh? Dig the latest:

Reporting from West Des Moines, Iowa –—

Speaking to supporters at a chilly outdoor rally, Mitt Romney on Friday sought to cast President Obama as out of touch with the economic pain being felt by average Americans.

“He’s in Hawaii right now. We’re in the cold, in the rain, in the wind because we care about America,” Romney said, speaking in the parking lot of a grocery store. “He just finished his 90th round of golf. We have 25 million Americans who are out of work, stopped looking for work or are underemployed. Home values have come down. The median income in America in the last four years has dropped by 10%.”

He dismissed the Obama administration’s contention that they stopped the recession from getting worse.

“The other day President Obama said, you know, it could be worse,” Romney said. “Sounds like Marie Antoinette, ‘Let them eat cake.’ ”…

This from the guy who, when challenged, immediately offers to bet $10,000.

One thing Mitt’s got is nerve.

But I want to thank him for reminding me of the old Allan Sherman song above. Enjoy.

Unless you’re a kid, you remember Allan Sherman. He’s the “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah” guy.

    As if it’s Obama’s fault he was born in Hawaii…

    And folks, when I lived in Hawaii, I played a LOT of golf. Used to go to the Navy-Marine Course after school, many days…

    I also used to play a lot of basketball, at the Sub Base gym at Pearl Harbor.

    Obama and I are so much alike, it’s eerie…

    yeah, kind of like me on Christmas lolling around Aiken, playground of old money. I must hate America. I should have been in Iowa.

    How many of you whining also had your staff put up in $495/night hotels while you’re on yet another vacation? Working out plans to release Taliban leaders must be taxing.

    In school, the paper had an ed board meeting about who to endorse for SGA president, among other offices. I pointed out that the leading contender shouldn’t be endorsed because it was clear he was looking out for No. 1, and therefore couldn’t be trusted. Another person made the argument that because he was self-serving, we would know his motives, and therefore he was more trustworthy. Nobody else cared, so I relented and we endorsed him. It appears like the more rational of GOP voters are coming to the same conclusion.

    Mitt can make enough substantive criticisms of Obama’s policies without doing something as overpoweringly stupid as this. Maybe it’s what caucus-goers expect.

    Hey, just because Hawaii is the home state of Obama, why criticize him for visiting his home state? Okay, he moved from Hawaii to work in Chicago.

    Mitt Romney was governot of Tax-achusetts and created the health care model of “ObamaCare” with “RomneyCare”.

    Great to hear that the weather improved in HI. One of these days, we will visit HI.

    Thank you for bringing up Alan Sherman. I had forgotten about “Hello Muddah Hello Faddah”

    Were I the Mitt-ster, I would avoid any mention of vacations, lest someone bring up him strapping the terrified fido the the roof of the Wagon Queen Family Truckster.
