Willard is by turns laughable, appalling, infuriating, and disgusting, but one thing he ain't is ordinary. He's been trying to sell this "I'm just like you" shtick for a long time, but no one is really buying it. Here are some of his pathetic lies along these lines:
Dressed in jeans, shirt sleeves rolled up, Mitt Romney reminisced before a noontime crowd about the long car trips his family took when he was a boy. "My dad made Ramblers, so we had one," the Republican presidential hopeful said.
In fact, Romney's father didn't just make cars. He was chairman and president of American Motors, the company that made Ramblers, and a highly successful businessman before he entered politics. It's a detail the son omitted as he sought to establish a bond with Iowans he hopes will support him in next week's presidential caucuses.
"I think it's a real problem when you have half of Americans -- almost half of Americans that are not paying income tax," the candidate told a group of supporters at a town hall event in Florida. "My own view with regards to tax policy is that we ought to provide help to the people that have been hurt most by the Obama economy, and that's the middle class." "It's not those at the low end and it's certainly not for those at the very high end. It's for the great middle-class, the 80 to 90 percent of us in this country." [Emphasis added]
(BTW, notice that Willard thinks it's a problem that those deadbeat slugs in the lower classes aren't paying enough income tax. MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE THEY DON'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY, WILLARD, YOU INSUFFERABLE ASS.)
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE:
After coming under attack over his business career and his assertion that he is not a career politician, Mitt Romney aggressively defended his work as a venture capitalist and told voters here Sunday that he personally has worried about being laid off.
“I know what it’s like to worry whether you’re gonna get fired,” Romney volunteered during a mid-day rally of several hundred inside an ornate opera house here. “There were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip.”
Romney’s campaign could not immediately provide any examples of a time when the candidate feared losing his job.
When, Willard? When were you oh so worried about losing your job? What a CROCK.
Romney will no doubt be sweating bullets this week when his tax returns indicate that he pays a lower rate on his millions of $$ than most middle class people. Willard wants you to believe he's just a regular guy.
Right. A regular guy who still gets $13 million a year from Bain (Vulture) Capital.
