Mitt Romney: The Truth Comes Out

Filed under: Election 2008,Mitt Romney — Psycheout @ 11:24 am

Ask Mitt NothingA “joke” in poor taste or the truth coming out?  You be the judge.

Last night, at the pre-Straw Poll “Ronstock” concert at the Bali Satay House in Ames, a Ron Paul volunteer played back a recording of competing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney joking about cheating in a State Fair popularity contest, stuffing the ballot box in Ames, and dodging questions across the state.

A Ron Paul event.  Something silly’s going to happen.

“Gosh, those Ask Mitt Anythings, how many of those did we have? 46? 47? Unfortunately, people took us for our word,” Romney joked, according to a sound clip on the digital recording device. “They asked me anything. There were some truly awful questions. But I, but I tried to dodge most of those. And I, I’ll keep on doing that as long as I can.”

But wait, there’s more:

Romney also joked about stuffing the ballot box at today’s Straw Poll. “At 7 o’clock they will count the ballots. We will stuff the ballot box, I hope,” he said on the recording.

And one can’t help but wonder if there isn’t a kernel of truth in this:

 And he joked about cheating in the Corn Poll, the bipartisan State Fair popularity contest in which attendees are asked to “cast your kernel” by placing a kernel of corn in a jar for their favored candidate to show their support. “I was a little dismayed because I saw Barack Obama — he had a lot of corn in that Mason jar,” quipped Romney. “But I was number one – so thanks for cheating!” The crowd applauded in the background.

Does a man who mocks the American people asking him questions, advocates stuffing the ballot box in his favor and condones cheating belong in the White House?  Not on your life.

Think Brownback.

  1. Brownback can’t even top Huckabee. How can he beat the big guys like Romney, Rudy and Fred? Why hasn’t Brownback given up yet?

  3. So far that’s two “no comment” replies to this thread. Interesting.

    Let’s play a substitution game:

    Why hasn’t Brownback America given up in the war on terror yet?

    Yeah, Brownback America is done with.

    Fixed. Maybe now you can understand. The fight is worth fighting. Brownback, even if he were to not get the nomination, can help steer the debate and the other candidates in the right direction. Apparently you folks know nothing about politics.

    That’s why B4B is here. Read and learn, fellas.

  5. Sounds like a guilty man talking. I bet he let it drop and it was too late to call the 15 second rule.

  6. The last thing we need at the debate is him throwing mud at our guys. That’s all he’s good for. Good riddance. Now everbody is begging Huck to be the VP. Brownback could have had that chance if he wasnt such a negative mud slinger. Attacking everybody to make himself look better.

  7. I was in Ames Saturday & Brownback performed like a second-tier candidate. He should join Tommy on the sidelines…

  8. It is so sad and pathetic to me that people have to tear others down just because they lost. Mitt will be the very best thing that could happen to our Country. It will not be done with lies and by tearing others down. Its sad one can not even have a little personality these days without being critisized. I have heard people say Mitt is to perfect. How can a President of our Beautiful America be to perfect?

  10. Sam Brownback did have a better showing than say… Ron Paul and Tancredo. But who cares? Mitt crushed the competition with 31.5%!

    Brownback…more like Brokeback.

  11. Psycheout, since you missed it, Mitt was poking fun at Brownback supporters who accuse him of cheating. It’s called “sarcasm.” It does require a modicum of intelligence to recognize that Mitt was being sarcastic and not confessing. Your assumption that your readers will believe your “Admission of Guilt Theory” over what is so obviously a sarcastic remark is an insult to our intelligence.

    Do the nation a favor and stay home on Election Night.
