It Is “Pick On Twit” Night… I mean, Mitt

It was a tough day at work… tough day at work (imagine Rodney Dangerfield’s voice over).  Ergo… tired.  Brain dead.  Brain synapsis is in low gear.  I happened to bounce over to twitter for a peek and saw this first tweet I have listed below appear, and thought, “Hmmmm… let’s have a little bit of fun and find some humorous tweets on twit… I mean, Mitt.

So, without further ado, “Pick on Twit Night”… I mean, MITT!  (Gumby, dammit!)

@ChicoDelainky
Mitt Romney is the kind of guy who shakes your hand while sending your job to China.

@rationalists
WSJ: Mitt Romney invested $30 million into a company. Took $180 million out. Fired 30% of the workforce. Any questions?

@LOLGOP
If you don’t think Mitt Romney likes hiring people, you’ve obviously never been to China.

@theantipalin
In the words of the late, great Ann Richards, “Poor Mitt. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.”

@mikerogerstx
Mitt Romney is about as committed to his principles as Newt Gingrich is to his wives! #R3VOLution #RonPaul #teaparty #tcot #gop #NHPrimary

@BorowitzReport
The only unappealing aspects of Mitt Romney are the things he says and does.

@narmalie
5 days later and I still love this. RT @Indigogirls: I heard that 2% of Americans thought Mitt Romney’s first name was Mittens. MITTENS OMG.

@rtorr05
Nothing like criticizing your President, Mitt. Shows good character. #Romney

@TheDailyEdge
If #Romney Seems Distracted in Interviews It’s Usually Because He’s Thinking How Much Cheaper It Would Be to Run His Campaign From Bangalore

There have been a rash of tweets referencing Mitt’s recent statement, “…I like firing people who don’t provide services to me.”  But what a lot of people are omitting (or not seeing or reading) from this statement is the fact that he was referencing firing insurance companies who are not providing the proper services to him.  I have more respect for a dead cockroach than I do Mitt, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay to skew what the intent of his words were.  He should have chosen his words much more carefully and wisely.  HOWEVER… there are still some funny tweets from this statement….

@OldDog_1946
“OK #MITT, YOU’RE FIRED!” #p2 #tcot #Romney

@Marnus3
Mitt Romney: “I see fired people”. #p2

@Marnus3
Mitt Romney: “I love the smell of pink slips in the morning! It smells like MONEY!” #p2 #ApocalypseBain

@Marnus3
If jobs were people Romney would be a serial killer. #p2

@brianbeutler
I’m off to eat at Chipotle, or as Mitt Romney might say I’m firing every other restaurant in my neighborhood.

@Marnus3
So now you know Mitt Romney’s secret: He fires people to create new jobs. #p2

Tweets referencing the recent scuttlebutt about Mitt’s father having been born in Mexico – and that “Mitt is a potential Mexican citizen, with full rights.”

@victormirato
El papá de Mitt Romney nació en México. Entonces ¿es Romney Mexico-Americano? ¿Sería el primer presidente Hispano en USA?
(Translation: Mitt Romney’s father was born in Mexico. So is Romney Mexico-Americano? Would the first Hispanic president in USA?)

@katieg1975
I’m watching NBC’s profile of Mitt Romney’s Mexican cousins…it’s actually quite interesting. Unlike the football game.

@Discountdracula
Mitt Romney: secret Mexican

  1. Mitt has a long history of flip flopping more than a hooked fish on a dock, and it seems like he will say almost anything to get votes, even when it so often contradicts what he has said in the past. More than a dead cockroach, Romney reminds me of a chameleon constantly changing his political colors to match whatever political environment he’s currently in – to the point that I honestly have very little idea of what Mitt really believes in, other than him believing that he wants to get elected President.

    But I really respect you for mentioning that Mitt’s “I like firing people…” comment was taken out of context, and whatever you think of Mitt, “that doesn’t mean it’s okay to skew what the intent of his words were.” It’s this kind of sound bite distortion that is poisoning American politics, and one of the reasons why so many of us have become a nation of disillusioned cynics, alienated from the political process and apathetic as a result.

    • I love your description of “flip flopping more than a hooked fish on a dock.” Perfect! Thanks, too… I may not like someone, or some group, but I do not believe in providing false information to further make an opponent look bad. Our main stream media does it all day, every day. When I searched youtube for a video of him making that statement, there were dozens uploaded with just that sentence alone… yet only a couple which showed the entire paragraph about insurance companies, which did clearly indicate that he was referencing firing insurance companies. This is the same shit-crap mud-slinging our politicians are doing that I despise.

    • LOL! Ha! I was hoping to see some proctology jokes… or something which pulls in the “fudge” in the background and his paranoia of gays. But so far, you’re the only response. Guess I’m going over like a lead balloon on this one. 🙂

      • Glad you liked it, and give your post here some more time. Except for the most energized and committed activists on both the left and the right, politics is a tough sell these days. The vast majority of the American public is sick to death of politics and politicians.

        But I still really enjoyed reading your selection of Mitt Twits! 🙂

  2. Mitt Romney’s Mexican father, hmmmmm…….Are the simple minded “BIRTHERS”, going to ask Romney for his birth certificate? We all know this was never about a birth certificate, if it was then these same people would be asking Romney for his. It’s about small minded people who hate African Americans and do not have the brains to review a President’s policy so they make something up. So sad, so sad.

    • I definitely agree with you on that! Of course no one will ask him for his birth cert. But he did produce a few tax returns, which means little to me other than he (legally) pays a lower rate than I do – and his millions (billions?) more money than I do. This just confirms our taxes need to be restructured.

      That was purely a hate move. Some hate Dem’s, some hate Obama, some hate blacks. But probably mostly a combination of all the above.

  3. Lets be clear none of these dullards have won a case in the “U.S. Courts”, maybe in their simple minds (if they have any) but not in our “U.S. Courts”, so unless Birthers/ Teabaggers, whatever you want to be called, win a court case, we will continue to see as dullards, liars or racist or maybe all three. Deal with that baby!

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
