Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Below are the notes—scribbled on a “hanky”—that Mitt Romney snuck out of his pocket as he approached the podium just before the debate began last week, in apparent violation of Commission regulations. “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by debate rules,” Romney pollster Neil Newhouse told ABC News.

WHO I AM TODAY
Fill in date and time: October 3, 9:02 PM EST.

No pre-existing positions

It’s O’s 20th anniversary, and I’m in my 44th year with Ann; should I mention that?

Declare firmly that there will be no tax cut that “adds to deficit”—call it my “number one principle”/repeat and “underline” it since I’ve never said it before

Make clear how absurd O is for calling it a $5 trillion tax cut when i’ll pay for it with secret stuff i’ll figure out later with John Boehner

Insist that a top rate drop of 35 percent to 28 percent is no tax cut for rich because I will slash their deductions the same amount/job creators will boost jobs anyway

End O’s death taxes and death panels

Shout out my $716 billion medicare cut spiel until Big O and Kid Ryan choke, a savings is a cut if it comes out of payments to the insurance companies

Remember you were once governor of Massachusetts and did a big thing (wink wink)

Claim my Massachusetts was #1 in education when it was ranked that in my first year only; a Day One accomplishment just like the ones I’m planning for the White House

I worked with 87 percent Dem legislature, don’t mention I doubled my GOP predecessor’s veto total, talk about Monday meetings as if they led to consensus

Go way out there and say I’m not going to cut education funding even while i add trillions to defense

If O mentions tax breaks to leave US—look baffled, declare I need a new accountant as if anyone would believe I’ve ever missed a tax break, declare I’ve never heard of something Bain clients feast on

Pluck big bird/like jim lay down

Oppose Dodd Frank because it protects the big banks financing my campaign

Double down on doubling up—double 12.5 million unemployed to 23 million, double 25 percent of college grads that can’t find work to 50 percent, double 22 year cost of oil and gas tax breaks to 50 year equivalent of Obama’s green subsidies, triple two studies that partially endorse my budget plan to six studies

Say half of O’s green job companies went bankrupt when less than 10 percent did

Declare my health plan covers pre-existing conditions and look misty-eyed.

I CAN DO ALL THIS AND THE PUNDITS WILL CALL IT A SHOCK & AWE REINVENTION!

  • maybe he did not raise taxes but why not look up the NEW and INCREASED FEE’s. revenue increase with no increase in taxes. Kind of sneaky I would say! I am not surprised

  • And now Rommy is playing both sides of abortion issue saying he wont try to repeal Roe V. Wade

    • no he won’t repeal it Republican congress will – remember they just need a President with enough digits to sign what is put before him.

      • One of the things Romney will do, if elected, is appoint ultra-conservative justices to the Supreme Court who will overturn Roe Vs Wade, roll back civil rights and ensure the law does not infringe on the ability of the rich to get richer, and the ability of their minions to get the financial support they need to tow the line.

    • ococoob

      Don’t forget the $$$ he made off of disposed aborted fetuses!

  • Maybe he has the onset of Dementia,some President that would be.

    • Ed

      Well, it worked for Reagans last two years.

      • …with a bit of help from Nancy and her astrologer!

  • I saw Mitt take the notes out his pocket, more cheating and more lies. Election day is going to be a real mess, more of GW Bush. Remember 04, we can not let them steal another election. are notes like a telepoter?

    • neece00

      We can not let them steal another election, I watched Fahrenheit 911 again last night and the hanky panky that went during that election was criminal.

  • jjrjon

    Romney, you speak with crooked tounge, you sound like a fish out of water, flip flopping.

  • ObozoMustGo

    DISTRACTIONS………. DISTRACTIONS……………. DISTRACTIONS………………..

    All of this nonsense is nothing more than a distraction away from what a loser and failure Obozo has been.

    YOUR PRESIDENT HAS BEEN LYING TO YOU AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FOR A MONTH OVER WHAT HAPPENED IN LIBYA ON 9/11. THE TRUTH IS COMING OUT. EVEN ABC NEWS IS ON IT….

    abcnews dot go dot com/International/attack-benghazi-consulate-unprecedented-state-department-official/story?id=17438780#.UHWBtRXLSSo

    [Replace the dot with a period. they dont allow links on here]

    THIS SCANDLE IS 100 TIMES WORSE THAN WATERGATE. OBOZO MADE THE CONSCIOUS CHOICE TO NOT BACKUP THE AMBASSADOR IN LIBYA WITH MORE SECURITY. THERE WAS NO PROTEST OUTSIDE. IT WAS A PLANNED AND DELIBERATE ATTACK ON AMERICAN SOVEREIGN PROPERTY AND PEOPLE. OBOZO KNEW IT BEFORE HAND. OBOZO CHOSE TO GO TO A FUND RAISER INSTEAD. OBOZO THEN CHOSE TO GO TO BED INSTEAD OF DEALING WITH THE CRISIS. THE STATE DEPARTMENT NOW ADMITS THEY KNEW IT WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK RIGHT AWAY. OBOZO CHOOSES TO BLAME A STUPID 2-BIT FILM FOR THE INCIDENT AND CONTINUED WITH THAT LIE FOR WEEKS, EVEN MAKING SPEECHES TO THE U.N. WITH THAT LIE.

    QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED:

    WHY WAS THE AMBASSADOR IN BENGHAZI ON 9/11 WITH NO SECURITY?
    WHY WAS THE AMBASSADOR’S REQUESTS FOR ENHANCED SECURITY IGNORED AND DENIED?
    WHAT WAS THE AMBASSADOR DOING THERE ANYWAY?
    WHERE DID THE TERRORISTS GET THE HIGH TECH WEAPONS THEY USED AGAINST US?
    WHY DID OBOZO KEEP LYING TO AMERICA ABOUT THE INCIDENT?
    WHAT IS OBOZO HIDING?

    You people that are supporters of Obozo had better wake up. He has been lying to you and playing you for a fool. This scandle is disgusting. Obozo has blood on his hands and he is lying to you.

    Have a nice day!

      What’ you’re too lazy to come up with a “customized” post, and just recycle the old one? I thought you were one of those who are “responsible” and “hard-working” and take a bath every day. At least I hope that last is true: it must be tough on any associates you might have (if any) if your body stinks as much as your “facts” and reasoning.

    • ALLLLAMERICAN

      I like it!!!!!!!!!!

      • oldtack

        C’mon ALLLLAMERICAN – stop echoing Obozo and others and come up with something more than one liners of bullshit. Or – could it be that you are incapable of this task?

        • 113121

          It’s a cheap robot. Probably belongs to O.

    • grammyjill

      try waiting for the investigation to finish before you throw your hissy fit

      • ObozoMustGo

        grammy….. within 24 hours Obozo knew it was a planned and coordinated terrorist attack on our consulate that resulted in the death of our ambassador and 3 other Americans. Then he went on TV multiple times, and instructed his minions to go on TV, and LIED ABOUT THE INCIDENT. He kept saying over and over that the incident was from a spontaneous protest caused by a 2-bit YouTube trailer. He knew from day 1 that he was lying and still kept doing it.

        BARAK HUSSEIN OBOZO HAS BOLD FACED LIED TO THE WORLD MULTIPLE TIMES!

        Nothing you say can change that fact.

        Have a nice day!

        “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

        • grammyjill

          What you left out is that the republicans in the House cut the State Dept security budget by half a billion dollars, and when the warnings started coming in, Obama went to the House and asked for the money to send some marines over. They said NO! And I believe, from everything I’ve heard about Chris Stevens, he wouldn’t have been there if he didn’t feel safe. Unfortunatly he was wrong this time. So, if congress won’t loosen the purse strings even after a warning from Hillary that it would put people in danger, and the ambassador having a wrong feeling. Who’s fault is it? By the way, there were also 10 libyan  guards killed in that attack.

    • Joseph Hemphill

      unlike your hero George W. who ignored all his advisers and data resulting in the largest attack on American soil in history.

    • grammyjill

      And how do you account for the FACT that the GOP in congress cut half a billion dollars from the budget for their security? Now who’s fault is it?

      • ObozoMustGo

        Absolute LIE!!!! That’s the next lie in a series of lies to cover up Obozo’s previous lies.

        Nothing you say can change the fact that Obozo BOLD FACED LIED to the world.

        Have a nice day!

        • grammyjill

          No dear, I watched the head of that commity say they cut that budget in half and they told Obama no when he asked for the money. And it’s not a lie if you believe that is the facts based on what you’ve learned so far.

  • Hey Mitt ..!! Here is your ” BIO ” remember try not to lie WE ARE LISTENING LOL

  • William Deutschlander

    If Romney says it, be certain he said and his conviction is, just the opposite in the previous six months.

    The dumb a-ses that would support Romney or Ryan are not inteligent enough to realize that a Romney Administration, will equate to the G W Bush Administration, only bolder and worse, resulting in another Republican Recession in 2015, screwing over the working class and poor.

    Every RECESSION and DEPRESSION has occurred during a Republican Administration. A Republican Administration HAS NEVER supported GROWTH IN THE ECONOMY, Just a Fact!

    Those thinking of supporting Romney damn well better have health care insurance that will cover all eventualities for life.

  • While I admit it is not relevant to this article; I am surprised by the recent conservative paranoia about Sharia law. As our President is a Muslim we need to be fearful that he will impose Sharia Law in his Second term. This is also when his socialist and Muslim loving leanings will become apparent. However, we need have no fear that a Mormon would impose bans on coffee, alcohol or tobacco.
    The problem with this country is that people embrace ignorance as soothing and reject logical thinking as too complex and hard.
    Mitt Romney won the debate because he was wearing magic underwear.

    • Wow, are you void of a rational thinking brain..?.Was your ignorance passed on thru the family gene pool? If so, you received a double dose of it…

    • oldtack

      Joan
      Where is your proof that our President is a Muslim. Not allegations – just documented proof?

      We do know though that Romney is a documented Mormon. And we do know that Mormonism is no more a Christian Religion than is the faith of Islam.

      Read “THE BOOK OF MORMON” and compare it’s content to the same subjects in the Christian Bible or the Torah.

      This is the “book” allegedly buried by Moroni in 471 AD and is the basis of the Mormon Religion. Moroni? – his is the statue that adorns Mormon edifices. Supposedly the Author of the Book. Very revealing when compared to the Bible and Christ.

      Romney is a very devout member of the Mormon faith and you are delusional if you think the Mormon Church will not hold power over him as President. They may not but then again they very well could impose taxes and bans on those items you mentioned.

  • William Deutschlander

    Look at the states that the Republicans took control over in 2010, the sick agenda they have been puttinfg forth in those states, is the sick agenda they desire for this country.

    No collective bargaining
    No public education
    No college grants or loans
    No access to abortion under any circumstances
    No birth control ( just imagine what that will do for poverty and public assistance)
    Health care for the entitled only
    Increasing the National Debt (just like Reagan, H W Bush & G W Bush did)
    Out source employment
    No unemployment benefits
    Collapsing infastructure
    Less Enforcement of the law
    Wall Street unregulated
    No food stamp program
    No medicaid
    No Medicare
    No Social Security
    Voting only for the entitled
    No child heath coverage

        There you go again. Misguided, out of touch with reality and fated to join all the rest of this populace on the way back to yesteryear.

        • ALLLLAMERICAN

          I ONLY know by experience!!!!!!!!!

    • oldtack

      And WE THE PEOPLE (including ALLLAMERICA) will find ourselves back where our ancestors were in the 1880’s under the business acumen of those such as Carnegie . Rockefeller, Astor , Mellon and Morgan and their ilk.

      My ancestors came from the Mines and Mills. My Grandmother worked in the Mill from the age of 12 until her death at 25 from “lung fever”. They lived in Mill Villages – those place with the Mill up front and row after row of sub-standard Mill owned houses behind and the ever present Company Store with over priced food one could buy on credit due out of next weeks check. I also lived in a Mill Village until I enlisted at 17 in the Military Service.

      With the present mind set of many wealthy business owners we, the working class, are fast heading back to our roots.

  • Mitt Romney is not president material he knows nothing about poor people are foreign countrys the only thing he wants is for the rich to get richer.

    • ALLLLAMERICAN

      What’s wrong with that???

      Maybe you could be up there with them if you got off your butt.

      You can NOT get rich working 9-5

      You will need several jobs 15 or more hours a day—-that’s how people get rich!!!

      Try it and then you can condemn the rich—–They are the ones that work the hardest not the ones holding out their hands!!!!!!

      • JOKE!!!! They get rich off the backs of those “9-5” workers! CEO and upper management pay has gone up almost 50% since the 70’s….while the average worker’s wage has gone up 15% tops,while they take away health benefits and strip retirement funds to boost profits for shareholders…..YEA the rich really work their asses off ….so if everyone wants to be rich, who will do the work for them…. I don’t have a problem with the rich, I do have a problem with how the profits are shared….OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE THE GREED

        • ALLLLAMERICAN

          We did it!!!!!!!

          TRY IT FOR YOURSELF

          • 113121

            Hey! I’m well off and I’m voting Obama because I want to stay well off. And further more I want my neighbors to be well off also and voting Republican is not the way to do that. All those years of * Voodoo Economics* and what does this country have to show for it? A group of fools who want to put religious nuts back into power and want to pretend they did everything all by themselves.

      • JSquercia

        OR Daddy could give them a million Bucks in stock and buy a new house for you .

        I know many people work 2 and 3 jobs and are STILL not Rich.

        Yes it’s exhausting clipping those coupons . Remember Mitt made all this money while being (according to his OWN words) UNEMPLOYED .

        You are an IDIOT

        • ALLLLAMERICAN

          I ONLY know by experience—IDIOT!!!
          We are living High on the Hog now, and we did it allll ourselves.

          NOOOO inheritance—Thank You

          LOOK WHO’S THE POOR IDIOT with your hand out begging!!!

      • oldtack

        ALLLLAMERICAN

        You are right – but then again -you are wrong.

        Many in this Country are “rich” because of inheritance or marriage (Bush, Kerry, Romney ) and so on in both the Political scene and the Business World.

        Then there are those with the gift. The gift of seeing the future. Those willing to risk all to achieve a dream. Those who refuse to hear the words “it cant’ be done. The Bill Gates, the Warren Buffets, the Thomas Edisons, the Henry Fords, the Boone Pickens and on and on.

        I was a loyal 8-10 hour a day employee and while I did retire on a good “pension” I never became Rich. On the other hand, I had a man that worked for me at a lower rate of pay that was blessed with insight and dared to believe. He was not brilliant by any means but he could see possibilities where others saw nothing. Today – I live comfortably on my Pension while “Bob” is a millionaire many times over. It took a lot of hours but it also took that rare gift of “insight”.

        I don’t begrudge the wealthy their money but I do begrudge this day and time when many with money are seemingly willing to keep their wealth by sacrificing those in the working class that do not have the “gift”. To me – there is something morally wrong in their logic.

        Notes on a hanky???

  • When Romney stated that half of the “Green” projects started under President Obama went belly up, (even though it was more like 10%), he defends his record with Bain regarding all the bankrupt companies and closed plants he left in his wake after Bain took them over.

    His defense of those failures? NOT EVERY PROJECT IS SUCCESSFUL. YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT FAILURES WILL OCCUR.

    • ObozoMustGo

      Uhhhhh… Jimmy….. Romney invests with PRIVATE MONEY! Obozo plays Monopoly wiht PUBLIC MONEY with which he has no business playing venture capitalist. And it is more than half of the “investments” that have failed or are failing.

      Pull your head out of your arse!

      Have a nice day!
