A video tribute to the unspeakable, soul-crushing awkwardness and general vapidity of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Your good morning dog.
“While he was in Utah getting the luge runs in shape, Romney was also still getting a six-figure salary for being a Bain “executive.” Perhaps for Mitt, that was just the going-away equivalent of a monogrammed briefcase. Although it does sort of take the steam out of his principled refusal to accept any money from the Olympics until his turnaround was successfully completed. So to summarize: Romney was at Bain after 1999, but not necessarily in the sense of occupying physical space. He was employed by folks in Utah, but not in the sense of the people who made out his paycheck. If we ever manage to really get our heads around Higgs boson, perhaps we will also be able to understand the Mitt Romney Olympics period.” —

“Most Americans figure if you are the chairman, CEO and president of a company that you are responsible for what that company does.” — President Obama
Mitt Romney sings America the Beautiful (warning: Romney sings), accompanied by facts from his long career as a vulture capitalist and plutocratic elitist:
Romney will eat America.
“Romney types, of course, are the ones who sign the front of the paycheck, and the Obama types are the one who have spent their entire lives signing the back of them.” — Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin, slamming Obama supporters and “implying that they too do not understand how private equity works because they have not been employers themselves.” (via reallyfoxnews)
It’s funny because a majority of the low information dullards who watch Fox Entertainment and worship hatemongers like Malkin have also been signing the “back of a paycheck” their entire lives.
To have been an “employee” instead of an “employer” your entire life is suddenly something to be ashamed of — that’s now a legitimate rightwing insult? Sorry, working / middle class employees: the conservative elite (your Betters) would like to inform you that you have no right to say shit about shit. Just shut up and vote for Mitt Romney.
Keep going, rightwingnutjobs… you’re doing great!
