The Latest Romney Firestorm: Mitt's Thanksgiving Monstrosity
Everyone is reacting poorly to the latest attempt by the Romneys to stay in the spotlight. Do they think they're running a shadow government from their Kolob palace? Are they the new Palins? I'm thankful Obama won a second term.
God help me -- I loathe those two -- but if I looked that good in a T-shirt at 65, I'd be happy.
If you had the kind of money that Mitt stole, R1, you could look that way too.
Does anyone else think that Mitt looks like he's about to devour Ann? It's all so Bluebeard.
All that money and they don't even have a vitamix!
Jesus, his arms are really hairy.
Given how poorly they all performed in the spotlight I would have thought they'd be relieved to get out of it, but apparently they've caught the fame bug. They should have their own reality show where they attempt to demonstrate how ordinary they are. It might be a laff riot.
I am glad we have been spared 4 years of Mitt and Ann. He looks as if he is ready to grab her by her hair, drag her into the bedroom and doggy screw her while calling her his little Obama bitch.
If he wasn't a Mormon, I'd say this photo was taken after a wild weekend bender.
Waddawe say: boxers it briefs? The man does not wear the magic underwear union suit. I guess that's just for the non-bishops. I'm assuming briefs. And a rent boy on the side.
The kitchen cupboards are cheap, what gives?
I thought they ate on an ironing board?
Get OFF me.
Why do they want to come off as humans now after the election campaign is finished?
Dear mother of god, they are not auditioning to be on the Amazing Race, do they?
STOP it, Mitt! Just stop it.
Quite right OP, we already have a Sarah Palin. We don't need another LOOKATME.
Thinking the same thing, r9. They look like entry-level ikea!
Her smile seems very forced and fake.
We do have much to be grateful for -- that this opportunistic, shifty couple and their five dull sons were kept out of the White House.
What peasants you people are.
Of course the cabinets are cheap, they don't use them and damned if the staff needs custom hardwoods.
oops, bad grammar.
Dear mother of god, they are not auditioning to be on the Amazing Race, are they?
There was an article in The New Republic a few weeks ago about Tagg Romney's upbringing.
I walked away from it with the impression that the Mittster is incredibly cheap, and these photos seem to confirm it.
The Voice of the Night
To the posters complaining about their taste in kitchen cabinetry: Do we even know where that picture was taken? In one of their many homes? The kitchen could belong to one of their kids. Or even a rental. Maybe they rented a condo in Miami for the holiday?
They should do penile dysfunction ads. Their naturals.
R24, that might be one of the funniest and most accurate observations I've ever read. So true!
r24? Oh, dear.

It's the servants' hall.
I love Rafalca.
Of course I did not vote for him- but he's not allowed to post on Facebook like tens of millions of other sheep?
You know, I almost hope they do end up on a reality show like R5 described, just like the Palins. As much as I have a huge dislike for the reality show phenomenon, I think it's hilarious - and more importantly, ultimately bad for the Republican party - that its higher ups are making asses of themselves on this level.
I get the feeling he's putting himself out there so as not to look like they're in hiding and ashamed of losing.
He wants to still have a prominent voice in the GOP.
R30 has a good point.
I'm ready to let it go. As long as he's out of politics, I'm declaring a personal truce.
I'd like to have the money those two have spent of plastic surgery, Botox and whatever other new cosmetic procedures to maintain their somewhat youthful looks, aren't they both in their mid 60s?
Money can't stop wrinkles, unless you get plastic surgery or fillers!
I still think Romney has some illness, his odd walk points to Parkinson's. If that is the case, how the hell was that kept from the public?
I am actually attracted to good looking, in shape older guys but Romney is downright creepy. His face looks like a rubber mask with a weird stare and a scary perma-grin. His body is OK but nothing special. I really don't understand all those posters who called him a "hot daddy" in the run up to the election.
r27, absolutely true!
Do not be fooled by the side by side SubZeros. They are purely functional.
Upstairs, the cabinetry is all hand carved rosewood.
We are so very thankful that Romney was humiliated and will never be president and that Ann Romney has been banished from the spotlight.
It's not your turn. We like firing people too.
I think they just did it, and the look on Ann's face tells all.
If only I had been paying attention and written "they are naturals" instead of "their". Oopsy. Love you oh, dear.
More proof they are crazy
[quote]Asked what her primary worry would be should her husband succeed in defeating President Obama on Nov. 6, Mrs. Romney replied, "You know, I think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being."
So is this an effort to keep the FB likes from melting away? If so, it didn't work. There was a huge spike on the day the Romney roller coaster ride at Disney was shown and a smaller spike today for the Thanksgiving pic.
Fuck you Romney-bot. A lot of people are done with you.
(You don't think he's stupid enough to think he can run again, do you?)
Imagine him reeking of b.o. and babbling unintelligibly when this was photo was taken. Ann's expression is of relief that he finally got out of bed...who cares if he's batshit crazy.
Ann has that fake smile only a truly devastated woman has.
Mitt has the "fuck it, I'm still rich!" smile. But also a creepy look, like a serial killer.
What hits me, aside from the cheap cabinets, is how sparse the counters are. I know my kitchen is a mess when I am cooking a big meal.
Maybe he's thankful that he lost. It's a creepy look of relief but maybe that's it.
That is not their kitchen. That kitchen is one that is shared by their servants at one of their vacation homes.
We're not interested, Shitt. You are nobody to the public. Thrilled you lost--and badly too.
I don't know whose kitchen it is, but one thing's for sure - Paul Ryan didn't do the dishes.
[quote]The kitchen cupboards are cheap, what gives?
They used the money to pay for the elevators for their cars.
Agreed. The kitchen is cheap because these people live in a "Downton Abbey" world. Shit kitchen for the servants.
I just can't get over how hairy he is. The matts of hair on his upper arms would lead one to believe that his ass and probably back and shoulders even have hair. oogly boogly.
He's an older guy. Older guys usually start growing hair on their shoulders, ears, etc.
