Will The Real Mitt Romney Please Stand Up

What an absolutely incredible video! An enormous variety of clips primarily of Mitt Romney, with a guest appearance by President Obama, all cut and edited to headline Mitt rapping away. Featuring an Eminem background rap beat from the song “The Real Slim Shady“. If you do not like rap, or even totally disdain rap, no worries here. It is just a quiet, steady beat to provide the momentum of spoken speech.

Major kudos to the creator. This was NOT an easy task. I have watched it several times now and each time it gets better as I hear something I missed the previous time. I wish I could give it more than one “like” as I would give it a hundred, if possible.

Personally, I recommend watching the video first so you can see the clips. Then replay it, but read the lyrics below the video the second time around. It is easy to miss what he’s “rapping” the first time just when watching. In fact, there is a great audio illusion… You’ll know what exactly what I’m talking about if you do it this way.

Way to go Hugh Atkin!!!ย  Without further ado, will the real Mitt Romney please stand up….


Can I have your attention please.
Can I have your attention please.
Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up.
I repeat. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up.
We’re gonna have a problem here.
Y’all act like you haven’t seen a Mormon before.
Jaws down on the floor.
I’m not concerned about the very poor.
Got it wrong. Sorry. That’s not what I meant.
I want every American to be in the top one percent.
I’m really named Willard. That’s my first name.
I’m not looking for a colony on the moon. Just for someone to blame.
I like being able to fire people.
“I’m Newt Gingrich.” You’re fired.
“I’m Rick Santorum and I’m….” Fired
Boom. Boom. Boom.
“Conservative women love Mitt Romney.” And I love cars and I love lakes.
I’m running or office for Pete’s sake.
With regards to abortion. Pro-life? Pro-choice?
I firmly believe in my own singing voice.

For purple mountains’ majesty, above the fruited plain.
“Where were we at John?”

Uh… with regards to abortion… uh….
You can choose your own adventure.
It’s a Republican dementia.
And I’m more concerned about the banks: they’re unable to lend.
Corporations are people my friend.
My dog is on the roof. My dog is on the roof.
Who let the dogs out? Who? Who?
Understand I’m an exception. The Obama contraception.
Not a vulture, I’m an eagle.
Look I’m gonna get my lawn cut by illegals.
There will be an influx. Hispanic voters in trucks.
Look, if you don’t believe, I’ll tell you what, ten thousand bucks?
Well, I made a lot of money matter of factually.
I drive a couple of Cadillacs actually.
I have emotion and passion. That’s a joke for the record.
But if you want the soul of America restored,
Come on board. Take your fair share and every
Mormon wave your underwear.
Sing the chorus, papa bear.

I’m Mitt Romney. Yes, I’m the real Romney.
All the other Mitt Romneys are just mass debating.
So would the real Mitt Romney please stand up, please stand up, please stand up.

  1. When I first saw the title to this post, my first thought was “Aw, and I was enjoying the ‘City Slicker’ Muppet version so much!” But this is way better than anything I could have expected. A hearty “Attaboy” to the video’s creator, and a huge “thank you” to you for posting it! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • City Slicker’s Muppet version, huh. I’ll have to google that… .sometime in the next century. Glad you enjoyed it – I seriously have watched it at least a dozen times. That took a lot of perseverance to find just the right video – one word at a time.

  2. I have to agree, this is a tremendous video. Whoever put it together has a wealth of knowledge (all those different clips and key moments) as well as a superb sense of timing and a wicked sense of humor. I may embed it as one of my end-of-the-evening videos…crediting you, of course. This has given me much cheer at the end of the day!

  3. That was A LOT of work by Mr. Atkin!!! Must have taken a long time to put that together so well. I must confess I heard “mass debating” as something else ….

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