Is Mitt Getting Meaner?

On the final stop of his bus tour, he said,

“So, Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago, and let us get about rebuilding and reuniting America.”

That surprised me because in the past, when he said something negative about Obama, he’d usually start with, “He’s a nice guy, but…” He was always careful and calculated. Was this calculated too?

Hmm. So many questions. Are the gloves coming off now that he has Ryan-of-the-Far Right by his side? Did picking Ryan give him street cred? This is getting interesting, though. I want to see who the real Mittens is. Are we getting a taste of his true personality with this statement? As this joke of a campaign season progresses, we’ll get more pieces to the boring puzzle that is Mitt Romney (think 5000 pieces, clear blue sky).

His comment still irritated me. This isn’t 2008. He isn’t going to take his campaign back to Chicago. He’s taking it back to the White House. This is a totally different fight than Senator vs. Senator. It’s a Governor trying to unseat the current President kind of fight. Don’t forget that, Mittens.

    ‘Division and anger and hate’? Strikes me as another case of an RTP thug doing up a strawman to cover his own ‘division and anger and hate’ speechy stuff.

    As for the gloves coming off, Mitt’s dirty, has been from the beginning, but he’s just having a harder time hiding behind his filthy rich friends who are pouring money into his campaign… oh, excuse me… his filthy rich friends who are pouring money into organizations devoted to health and welfare and having absolutely no part in the political campaign. You know, those guys.

    Mitt is cold on the outside and cold and ugly on the inside, and he picked a running mate who’s just like him and who demonstrates his toughness by having cops beat up old men who don’t like him. Sort of validates the Mitten’s desire to throw the mean and act like the grown ups.

    Someday soon we may actually get a discussion of issues and facts, like what the Mitten’s actual budget plans are and whether he’s paid taxes for the last ten years and whether he is actually a soulmate of Michael Vick.

      To clarify about ‘grown-ups’, Mitt’s version of grown ups is people who act like him, which is to say vile, amoral adolescents parading around in adult bodies.

    This is merely a red herring to get the Obama campaign and some of the media off of his back about releasing more of his earlier tax returns. Something he clearly doesn’t want to do for fear of what it will expose will harm his already poor wealthy image.

    The thing that gets me the most about Romney is the fact that he exempts himself and his campaign for his own complaints. Meanwhile, IMO, both campaigns are pathetically low at this point … and believe me, you don’t won’t to live in a swing state. Love live the Mute button!

    “5,000 pieces, clear blue sky” is the most poetic and accurate way I’ve heard to describe Romney yet. When they write books about this campaign – you should sell that title to them for use!

    The confusing part is that Romney and Mini-Me Ryan openly live their belief that they are above the “little people” (releasing tax returns is clearly for little people, just like paying taxes) – and yet all the heads they are standing on want to vote for them.
