@LOLGOP’s Tweets Of The Week: #RomneyShambles Edition

@LOLGOP’s Tweets Of The Week: #RomneyShambles Edition

Though he is only the presumptive GOP nominee for president, Mitt Romney set an world record for gaffes in his first day in London — including questioning if the country was ready to host the Olympic Games. Conservatives have lambasted President Obama for not nurturing the “special relationship” the United States maintains with the United Kingdom. The last thing they wanted was seeing their standard-bearer quickly becoming a punch line in England. But at least 60,000 booing Londoners agreed that Romney’s condescending attitude toward our closest ally was not appreciated.

On both sides of the proverbial pond, Twitter users mocked Mitt using a singular hashtag: #RomneyShambles, adapted from the term “omnishambles,” which hails from the BBC sitcom The Thick of It. This show, as you might have guessed, focuses on the blunders of pompous politicians. So the Brits are quite familiar with the art of the gaffe — but even they were impressed by shambles of our Mr. Romney.

  • Four pages for less than 20 retyped tweets. For crying out loud.

  • Remember “swift boat” as a verb? “Romney” could be a verb – the act of lifting a bit of someone’s comment and sing it to smear them, as “You didn’t build that” has been used.
    He “romneyed” his opponent.

  • Remember “swift boat” as a verb? Let’s use “romney” as a verb – the act of lifting a bit of someone’s words and using them to smear them, as “You didn’t build that” has been used.
    He “romneyed” his opponent.

    The Repubs would do well to look for a replacement for Romney, but it’s too late now (let’s hope)! He’s going to talk his way right out of the presidency. Hurray!

  • Romney’s running for president because he wants to be president. He looks presidential most of the time. He acts presidential some of the time. Then comes the rest……..Exactly what does he stand for, except not releasing his tax returns?

    • What does he stand for? Give him 4 years in the white house, he will have a trillion more dollars, and our cemetaries will be full of the 99%, who have died of starvation and the pompous 1% will have everything they want. GREED GREED GREED.
