Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Mitt Romney is the most secretive Republican candidate since Richard Nixon. And he’s quickly becoming the most easily-mocked political figure since Bob Dole.

RomneyGirl mimics the 1997  “Barbie Girl” hit to call out Mitt’s penchant for Swiss bank accounts, avoiding taxes, and hiding money. It’s a parody with a purpose: The blonde RomneyGirl, garbed in Swiss folk attire,  wants Mitt to do what more and more Americans believe he’ll never do: release his tax returns.

This video’s faux-Mitt is a bit young and lacks the “Just for Men” gray frosting that makes the true Mitt’s hair perfect.  But his voice is just as comically off-key as it is in Mitt’s most famous singing performance.

    And where is the infamous Obama girl from 2008? Sitting this election out I understand. Perhaps that hope and change didn’t work for either.

      The HOPE and CHANGE girl got kidnapped by Senator McCONNELL and Rep. BOEHNER.

    The republicans have no problem with a put down song about Obama, but if the Dems release a put down song about Romney, according to the Rebublicans, it’s not fair. And the Romney camp is fair? All I know, if the government wanted to see my taxes for the last ten years, I’d have to release them. I ‘d have no problem with that because I don’t have anything to hide.

      What about our President, he has his whole history locked up and refuses to share. Don’t you think what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    • I think it’s funny as hell, innacurate as hell , and just as stupid .It is dumbed down to a level that a Regressive can understand and more importantly believe …but it’s funny …Im a Romney backer

    typical fox news….tries to pigeon hole her into committing that she is anti obama or at least saying things that they can cut and edit into lies. The headline for this video proves it. Also the interviewer said she “has said that she may not vote for him in November”…later in the video she sais that she thinks the president has done an “alright job” and she is “keeping her options open.” Fox news needs to get off the air with their lies and propaganda. I would rate them below the National Enquirer on the credibility scale…..

    • FOX News is a direct result of the liberal leaning media in this country. Had they been able to keep their bias out of the news, there would be no market for FOX. But they couldn’t, and there is. Now we have a media outlet feeding their right wing agenda into the news, and it’s the fault of the mainstream media. FOX News is here to stay. THANKS NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, CNN, and so many others. You’ve done America a real disservice!

    • smittyray

      Sounds like you are talking about MSNBC, not FOX or CNN.

  • Fast and Furious…kind of what they are trying to pull over the public’s eyes,blaming Obama for this whole thing…if Fox did their research they would see they are blowing this up into a story..oh and the real punchline….this project was started by the Bush Administration.

    • You are right, Fast and Furious was a sting operation started by the Bush Administration to determine who was behind the sale of weapons to Mexican drug cartels. The intent of the operation was good, but it infringed on the interests of a very powerful organization, it was poorly managed and executed and, eventually, the Obama administration had no choice but to shut it down. Who does the GOP blame for it, the people that put an end to it!

      The Fast and Furious charade remind me of the much advertised accumulation of debt, $1T of what the GOP blames President Obama for is the funding used for the TARP (bank bailout), an initiative put in place to bail out our investment banks. Unfortunately for President Obama the TARP was signed in late 2008 and its funding appears in the FY09 budget, which started October 1, 2008. The GOP conveniently uses that appropriation to blame President Obama for accumulating debt! The same goes for the decline in government revenues caused by a deep recession that started in 08, and the subsequent increase in unemployment payments.

      The only item that can be accurately attributed to President Obama is his stimulus package, the rest was either programmatic, the result of Bush’s policy (TARP), or the effects of the Great Recession.

        Bush had a sting operation but it wasn’t Fast and Furious. President Obama and Holder own F&F. Bush’s operation was shut down prior to weapons leaving the country. You liberals are all alike; Often wrong but never in doubt!

          • Did you learn your Liberal intolerance from Rahm or Obama

      • You dont know what you are taliking about . The Bush plan was called Operation Wide reciever .That Operation was designed to ferret out the Cartels so they could be arrested and prosecuted . In that one GPS trackers were placed on every single gun and it had the blessing and cooperation of the Mexican Govt . It was halted in 2007 when Bush became aware that the Mexican Gov’t wasn’t goimg to prosecute the cartels . Fast and furious has NOTHONG to do with Bush or that . Other then the fact that just like Obama does in blaming Bush for everything ( including an economy he has made 3x worse then when he took office ) Regressives blame Bush for Fast and Furious too . Showing their complete and utter brainwashing and total lack of knowledge ( maybe even their intelligence level ). It also shows that Regressives will go to any length in excusing and explaining away what their Ruler has done . Even and Including doing the same thing Stephanie Cutter and the Obama Campaign does . That would be flat out lying . Fast and Furious was a designed plot to let guns go walking into Mexico with NO way of tracking them . Obama and Holders full intent was not to track Mexican gangs nor prosecute and stop them . Fast and Furious did NOT have the Mexican Gov’ts approval . They had NO knowledge of it . It was a plan launched by Eric Witholder to have these guns come back to America and be used in crimes so that they can build a case to disarm America and circumvent the 2nd Ammendment . It has resulted in the deaths of approx 300 Mexicans and a U S Border Agent . His Name was Brian Terry and Regressives and their Rulers can’t even remember his name . If this were any other President he and Holder would be up for treason and Obama would be Impeached . If this were a Republican President the Press would be all over this .

    I really don’t care for Romney and I thought it was just dumb. I want a parody to be a little more sardonic and sarcastic. This was just too kitchy.

  • It’s not that funny, nor terribly creative. Make fun of the rich guy for being rich. Sure, whatever, why not. Why Not? Because there’s a lot more about Mitt Romney to make fun of, that’s why. Let’s start with the fact that he DOES remind people of Richard Nixon.

    ♥ Conservative commentator Bill Kristol: “He should release the tax returns tomorrow. This is crazy… you’ve got to release 6, 8, 10 years of back tax returns. Take the hit for a day or two.”

    ♥ Washington Post columnist George Will: “The costs of not releasing the returns are clear, therefore he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them.”

    ♥ Alabama Governor Robert Bentley: “If you have things to hide, then maybe you’re doing things wrong. I think you ought to be willing to release everything to the American people.”

    ♥ Former RNC Chair Michael Steele: “If there’s nothing there, there’s no ‘there’ there, don’t create a ‘there.’ Put out as much information as you can.”

    ♥ Governor Haley Barbour: “The advice I would give Romney is: Who cares about your tax returns? Release ’em!”

    ♥ NC Rep. Walter Jones: “I think he should release his financial records and I think if he does it in July it would be a lot better than in October…”

    ♥ Former McCain adviser Ana Navarro: “He should just release the stupid taxes…”

    ♥ Conservative journalist David Frum: “Tax returns the next problem. Releasing returns under pressure: more weakness, more pain.”

    ♥ Senator Dick Lugar: “I have no idea on why he has restricted the number to this point.”

    ♥ Senator Chuck Grassley: “I don’t think he should be called on to do anything extraordinary other than what other presidential candidates have done.”

    • I think Romney is waiting for the debate to turn to Obama and say I will release my tax return if you release you School records , Foriegn Student Loans ( so we can all see where Obama admits to be from ) His Foreign passports and visas His Soc Sec # ( which was issued in a State he never lived and the Fast and Furious papers . Think Obama and the Regressives would take that deal ? Can’t wait for that can you ? You will all be having Rachel Madcows over that …By the way Rachel sure does look feminine ..are you sure he’s a man ?

        Why did Republicans hide Romoney’s tax frauds throughout their whacko primaries? Smartness or dumb? Now back-firing!

      • Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School, for your information. Plus, you know Mitt has a real problem with this tax issue when Republicans are screaming for him to release them.

        • No one knows what Obama graduated as because his records are sealed . Are you taking his word for that ? You do know he has a proven track record of lying . What mystery could he possibly be hiding ? foreign student loans ? Where did Obama say he was a citizen of ? Lots of questions . Don’t you find it funny that we now know more in three days about Paul Ryan then we do about Obama ? Maybe if the Liberal Press would’ve vetted Obama we would’nt be in this mess he created .

        Very big mistake for hiding Romney’s Tax Fraud throughout the primaries. Really backfiring on Republicans now. Romney should be investigated by the IRS.

        Democrats have had only six presidents since America’s history, and Republicans have produced/ruled for the rest of American history. Six Demoratic presidents created over 42 million jobs, while the Republican presidents who ruled America for the rest of American history created all together about 24 million jobs only. Obama has created over 250,000 jobs only in Auto Industry; and Obama also has created over 3 million jobs within two – three years in office. Healthcare that every president avoided, Obama took the risk and took a stand for ordinary people and applauded by the conservative Supreme Court. Obama regulated Wall Street; gave equal pay to women; repealed “Don’t ask, don’t tell”; Obama came out bold to back Gay marriage; and saved American Economy from falling off the cliff. All Romney did was dodge taxes; fire people and made $20,000 dollars per victim; shipped jobs overseas; laundered money offshore to avoid taxes; still managing Bain secretly but claiming he was retired just to dodge taxes.
