Well I guess it's good the Mormons have lifted the ban on black folk.
They called him a name that means black?
Imagine what that kid is going to feel like in that mormon lily-white family.
They probably wanted to call him Blackie, but they settled with this name as the next best thing
They thought it was CLEVAH!
The baby is adorable. His name is literally Black Romney, though; I can't with that stupid family anymore.
That kid hit the fucking jackpot. Romney may be repugnant, but he's richer than God. Good for that kid. Sorry about the whole Mormon thing, but somehow a billion dollar trust fund, trumps that.
Anything that the sickening Rmoney family does is done for the wrong reason. They are calculating, ugly, perverted people. That poor kid will be propped up when one of those sleazy kids tries to run for public office, in which he will steal more money from the poor.
Would you want to be in that family? I sure wouldn't.
Nothing could stop him from running again if he wanted. They have nobody else.
I think they have figured out that adoption is the only path to win minority votes for the Republican Party.
There must be very lucrative government contracts on the horizon and the Romneys will bid using their 'protected' 4 year old CEO.
The biological parents of Romney's new adopted grandchild are 47 percenters.
black children are so retro
Wow, from a 47 percenter to a 1 percenter .... way to go, Black.
Are the Romneys trolling us right now? Anyway, he is an especially cute baby. I really hope that he can escape his fate.
A black Romney? They probably raise him as an indentured servant.
Here's hoping young Blackie Romney will give the DL his
subversive insights from inside that family.
He will be our new Zahara Jolie-Pitt.
According to the first comment: [quote]My son's name is Kieran. Its[sic] a biblical name. Kieran was John's protege.
Romney's black grandkid is gonna grow up rather uppity.
I live in Ireland. Kieran is one of the most common boys' names here.
Rmoney isn't running again, but maybe one of his sons will. One of them already expressed an active interest in running. In Massachusetts I think. Maybe he's the one who adopted the Black kid.
Congrats Anne and Mitt! We love our brown grandchildren too!
Is that a couch or a bed? And is she celebrating the hunting and killing of animals?

I'm no fan of Romney. Although as Republicans go he used to be more acceptable.
He's a venture capitalist - and clearly took full advantage of a tax code in a way that most of us can't. But nothing illegal. Democrats and Republicans are responsible for the tax code Romney and others work to their advantage.
I think he is a good example of a politician who actually just can't manage to be calculating enough when running for office. The guy was one mistake after another - and probably lost an election that almost anyone else could have won.
You want to see calculating - the Clintons. Quite honestly we could use a little of that skill in the White House right now.
One of his kids adopted a kid.
Good for them, he's cute.
do you think Romney will try to run against Hillary?
I wouldn't put it pass him if he decides to run again, the man is obsess with being the president.
R32, at least he just wants to be president and not god.
I just saw the South Park Mormon episode again this weekend that picks apart their beliefs. Classic stuff. They must just decide to keep lying about believing it. You'd have to be mentally feeble to honestly think any of it could be true.
That poor child, growing up in an all white world will leave that baby emotionally scarred for life. I don't understand why white people who have no connection to black people or black culture adapt black children.
Because no one else wants them R36. It's that or reopen orphanages.
That said, what's the Irish name that means yellow or red? I'm trying to predict the name of their next grandkid.
Well the chihuahua kept peeing in the bag, R38! This one can wear a diaper.
How do you adopt a grandchild?
By utterly controlling every aspect of most of your children's lives like they aren't middle aged adults themselves.
I am no fan of Romney but this line about Ben the adopted father was described in the UK Daily Mail "Ben Romney, 34, is a doctor. The son and his wife Ande have one child. Ben is said to be the most ‘un-Romneylike’ of the brothers. Though he has agreed to appear with his family at the convention, he has no interest in politics."
So I am going to assume that there is no political motive until someone can prove otherwise.

True enough. But the same is true of every religion.
Really can we talk virgin birth?
This is what good people do when our children have relations with the hired help. We take care of the consequences, unlike you people!
God bless that child!
I love him. He has such a kissable face.
Do Mormons always have so many kids or were they trying for a girl?
I'm so glad this creepy looking family did not make it to the white house. The thought of our tax dollars feeding this tribe on Thanksgiving dinner makes me sick.
[quote] Do Mormons always have so many kids or were they trying for a girl?
Large families are heavily promoted in the LDS church, but you will find small Mormon families here and there. I had a Mormon classmate in high school. There were seven kids in her family, but two of them were adopted. A few years back, I was living in Mesa, Arizona which has a large Mormon population and I met several small Mormon families that had 2-4 kids.
They absolutely believe in large families as a way to increase the size of their cult. They are crazy fuckers. I went to law school with a lot of them, because I ended up by chance at a Catholic college associated law school. They openly talked about how they were told to study and pursue avenues that would put them in political positions and positions of power, hence so many of them in law school. They are steered to getting married right out of high school at 18 years old. There is a decent sized attrition rate though. It was weird to hear 21 year olds talking about their toddlers and their divorces and stuff. Someone jokingly asked in class one time about 'gay mormons' and the response was that there's no such thing because if you come out as gay then you are no longer considered part of the church. This was around 2006.
Anne's strapping a child seat to the top of the car as we speak.
I bet Gladys Knight is happy.
Now there's TWO OF THEM.
Are the females verified to be fertile before marriage to ensure a biological child?
This went to the blonde one. The Mitt clones are not allowed to adopt, only the other two can.
You is kind. You is smart. You is important.
[quote]He's the new lawn jockey.
LOL, R28, that totally reminded me of my mom.
For her entire life, she's wanted a lawn jockey.
She finally bought herself one last year (at the age of 70)... and immediately painted his skin a Caucasian shade!
Who DOES that?!?
Several people in the south have painted their lawn jockey's white.
Romney will be over 70 in 2016, and the Republicans hate him for losing.
So no, he won't be running again.
I voted for Obama, and yes, I am a liberal Democrat, but I also never thought of Obama as the second coming and that Romney could have should have romped away with the last election.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
