Doesn’t Mitt Romney Care About The Fiscal Cliff?

ZOMG!!! Breaking news from the Washington Post:

Mitt Romney attends Pacquiao-Marquez boxing match

For sheer happy weirdness, nothing quite rivals the surreal encounters that occur at a major boxing match. Saturday night, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, as Manny Pacquiao readied himself in a dressing room for his fourth mega-fight with legendary Mexican foe Juan Manuel Marquez, Mitt Romney appeared. A guest of the Nevada Athletic Commission, Romney had dropped by to wish the Filipino superstar good luck.

A seated Pacquiao was having his hands taped in preparation for putting on his boxing gloves. An aide casually introduced him to Romney, who expanded on the introduction: “Hi, Manny. I ran for president and lost.”

It’s a good thing we didn’t elect Mitt Romney. What kind of a leader goes to a boxing match when the government is facing a financial crisis?

    Fucking Romney.

  2. angienc says:

    In all seriousness the continued focus on Romney is two-fold: (1) The vile progs honestly can’t believe he hasn’t crawled into a hole and died and (2) Just like during the election, if they stopped, they might have to talk about Obama.

    • Well that and making sure the show is good and threatening for the next GOP candidate. Chest-thumping apes, if you ask me.

      • elliesmom says:

        This is what it’s all about. How many women are afraid to throw their hat into the ring after what happened in 2008? Romney is squeaky clean, his family has no skeletons in the closet, and yet he’s been called a murderer. They want to be sure anyone thinking about running against whoever the Obamacrats choose in 2016 (it won’t be Hillary) had better think twice.

        • votermom says:

          Yup. Mitt is getting the Palin treatment. She was not allowed to go back to being governor – they had to destroy her.
          Strangely, McCain & Ryan are allowed to resume their former lives.
          I don’t quite understand it – maybe only one challenger gets to be designated Public Hate Receptacle at a time? I wish someone would give me the revised 1984 version 2012 manual they are using …

        • Erica says:

          Frankly, anyone who wants to run for president to actually effect change by being a well-prepared, competent person who is not beholden to the moneyed interests that run the show better just forget about it. That person will never get elected in this country again. They just let them run as a theatrical foil to the chosen one. It’s all theatre. Ask Hillary, McCain, Romney.

          Ye[p, I’m officially cynical now. But I think that’s the truth.

        • lyn5 says:

          The Obamacrats have dug a dirty hole, and I don’t expect any woman will crawl out of it. Their winning combination for president is a man of color and a negative campaign. The media lapdogs are pure gravy for them. I hope the GOP eventually has someone who can bury the Obamacrats for good.

      somebody once said the ” the best revenge in living well”
      It does burn the obots biscuits that the Romney’s are doing that

    O/T. Before we get drowned out by the Mayan deluge, theres another superstition thats hit the world. Women who are close to giving birth are forcing their docs to ensure that their babies arrive on 12.12.12. Maternity beds have been booked in advance all over the world. Supposed to bring luck. Yeah, in a way, I see their point. Its always easy for a kid to remember his/her date of birth when its 12.12.12. Lol. The last time this happened was last year on 11.11.11. And since it ain’t gonna happen for the next 1000 years (approx), I can understand the mad rush.

    • honoracarroll says:

      My daughter was born 9-8-88. I do remember that it was a big thing that year as well. She missed it by a month, so no inducing was considered and she has turned out rather well. We kept her!! I remember Princess Fergie’s daughter was born on 8-8-88 and it seemed unfair, since she was already pretty lucky having the Queen of England as her grandmother.

    remember all the BS and lies about the mosque at ground zero? How anyone who opposed it was just anti-islamic and all the BS.

    well there are no community programs and it is as usual a mosque placed to celebrate a mass murder

    • elliesmom says:

      We don’t teach real history anymore, but we ignore it at our peril. We also don’t teach geography. So if we were to make a list of all of the places in the world where the victor has spat in the face of his conquest (and I don’t just mean Islam), most people won’t even know where those places are. I had 8th grade students who didn’t know California was a coastal state and thought Istanbul was a town on Cape Cod. Their brothers and sisters were fighting in Iraq, and the kids couldn’t locate it on the right continent. Our kids are being taught that to question the motives of anyone who is not exactly the same as they are in race, class, and creed is wrong without any knowledge of where, when, or how those motives might have evolved. I’m not sure it’s totally through incompetence.

  8. yttik says:

    I think the Romney’s have the right idea. We should all attend some sporting events, shows, whatever, and starve our government of attention. This fiscal cliff nonsense, bickering in congress, and media hype doesn’t deserve our attention. Tell them to get back to us when they’ve actually accomplished something, because all the drama is just stoopid and boring.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Obama met with Boehner at the WH yesterday in a super-duper secret meeting. All I can think of is Obama asking B to drag this thing out so he send the family off to Hawaii a week early again. heh.

      I won’t watch news or read articles with the F word (Fiscal) in it, since it annoys me so much. Not even theater anymore, just a smarmy side show at a carnival nowadays.

    • AniEm says:

      I agree. But here’s my radical plan for making the gov’t less boring and more responsible. Farm out all federal jobs, legislative and civil service, to the Chinese for a 10 year period at 25% of the current salaries and benefits. They own the place anyway and the net savings to the American population will be significant. If the Ds and Rs can get their acts together within 10 years and agree to represent the people once again, we’ll resume to business as usual. But for the time being, outsource, outsource and outsource.

      • yttik says:

        LOL, that’s not a bad idea. Outsource congress! And if it goes to China, please don’t translate anything. We don’t want to hear a breaking news announcement of every petty squabble. Just do the whole thing in Chinese so we don’t have to hear about it.

        • gram cracker says:

          Thought it already had been outsourced since the lobbyists write the laws that Congress passes and the President signs.

        • AniEm says:

          As bonus, we could also outsource executive and judicial branches – all the flotsam and jetsam. Think of the savings. And, as you point out, we won’t be harassed as much by the media with these trivial little people and their trivial little agendas.

    • A friend of mine posted this today:

      “No one should vote again until we get a resolution that the citizens decide whether legislators and other reps should get (1) a salary increase (2) a salary for life. Bet things would get done post haste!”

  9. HELENK says:

    while the obots are upset about the Romney’s getting on with their lives, we have backtrack inviting someone who wants to kill American soldiers and their families to the white house. Not sure if they did a duet of ” Two of a Kind”. obots crickets

    • smile says:

      While surfing the TV, I heard Hannity ask his guests, (paraphrasing) “how come obama got so deranged over the islam video that caused protests and “bengazi”, and yet is so cool with gangnam rapper who wants to kill innocent americans.” Hannity left it at that, calling it double standard, but it really got me thinking. Both videos are supposedly art, therefore artistic license applies to both. One video gave a modern day interpretation of cultural aspects of 700 A.D., without calling for the killing of anyone, but it was the vilest thing, so vile it had to be denounced at the UN, Pakistan, the US embassies, and on all News channels. The other was calling for the slow killing of innocent americans, but hey, that is so cool that the american president goes to an event with the artist. Which should be worse rom an american perspective – A modern irreligious interpretation of religious/historic events of 700 A.D. that has nothing to do with america, or calling for the killing of the americans? It is beyond double standards. It is illogical.

    would this be a step down for valerie jarrett?, isn’t she the unelected president?

    • gxm17 says:

      I love the Festivus pole! I find it interesting that so many commenters wrongly assume that atheists are “jealous” of “their” holiday. Winter solstice celebrations have been around longer than Christianity and belong to all humankind. I think it’s wonderful that there are so many ways to celebrate and don’t understand why Christians seem to think they own this ancient celebration (when all they did was absorb an existing tradition into their religious calendar). Sorry, Christians, but your holiday is my holiday too. You’re going to have to share.

      • catarina says:

        A “Festivus Pole” made of beer cans for the purpose of mocking the religious beliefs of others is “sharing” and you think it’s “wonderful?”

        OK, whatever.
        Personally, I think it’s ignorant, trashy, rude, and uncivil. But what do I know?

        • gxm17 says:

          I don’t see the festivus pole as mockery. Are all the pasta ornaments my grandkids make “mocking” someone’s religion? I think the recycled beer cans are bright and festive. And, besides, beer cans are a particularly appropriate ornament to accompany Saturnalia.

          Good grief, I collect religious icons and recycled cans and bottle caps are often used in religious folk art. I don’t see anything ignorant, trashy, rude, or uncivil about people expressing themselves with recycled art, Christian or otherwise.

    jamie foxx who thinks backtrack is his lord and savior jokes about killing all white people in his movie.

    non racist???????? because only whites can be racist

  12. HELENK says:

    Obama, in Michigan, says he opposes efforts to take away unions’ rights to bargain for better wages, working conditions – @Reuters

    nothing like adding fuel to the fire.

    as far as I understand right to work laws do not take away bargaining power, it just means they can not take workers money against their will

    a hero died today.
    Thank him for his courage and bravery and service

    Thank God for men like this

    may he RIP
