Obligatory: The Mitt Romney lip-reading clip

posted at 7:07 pm on October 14, 2011 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate. The voice at times is more Perry-esque than Romney-esque (which is no surprise) but the gibberish is truly inspired, as befits the slickest candidate in the field. Just one question: Wasn’t Romney against stuffing ice chests when he ran for Senate against Ted Kennedy in 1994?

Incidentally, it looks like soon he’ll be the only centrist Republican competing in New Hampshire, not just the only centrist Republican with a chance of winning. Go take a look at Huntsman’s third-quarter fundraising report. Dave Weigel accurately predicts his next move.

Go take a look at Huntsman’s third-quarter fundraising report.

I thought I heard Huntsman is a billionaire or at least has Romney type money… if true, couldn’t he just self finance?

El_Terrible on October 14, 2011 at 7:11 PM

I thought the laughter was the best part.

The Ugly American on October 14, 2011 at 7:11 PM

Man I want the Ron Paul version of this. More than likely it would sound more sane than the real Paul.

William Amos on October 14, 2011 at 7:13 PM

Heh heh heh heh.

Vince on October 14, 2011 at 7:13 PM

Now, that’s some talent there. I’d love to see what they could do with the SCOAMF.

TXUS on October 14, 2011 at 7:14 PM

Ladies & gentlemen, the “gremlin” has left the “party”.

itsnotaboutme on October 14, 2011 at 7:14 PM

The Romney in this video sounds more authentic, and makes more sense than the actual Romney.

portlandon on October 14, 2011 at 7:14 PM

I do like the fact that Romney flipped flopped on if it would be good or bad if Madonna married a Giant.

William Amos on October 14, 2011 at 7:14 PM

Yo mama, can eat me.! Did I hear that right?

Vince on October 14, 2011 at 7:15 PM

I love these so much!

acasilaco on October 14, 2011 at 7:16 PM

Not even close to being as funny as the Rick Perry one and that warm yellow KoolAid.

Knucklehead on October 14, 2011 at 7:16 PM

Romney should hire the guy who does the laugh in this to do voice over laughs for his future campaign videos.

portlandon on October 14, 2011 at 7:16 PM

I didn’t spend money on robotic things, I spent money on videogames

El_Terrible on October 14, 2011 at 7:16 PM

I am going to pour spiders and badgers on our enemies and get them all to shut up.

Now, that is a policy I think we can all get behind.

Vince on October 14, 2011 at 7:15 PM

Yes you did. LOL

Knucklehead on October 14, 2011 at 7:16 PM

I wonder when Huntsman’s father is going to shut down this carnival side show.

TXUS on October 14, 2011 at 7:18 PM

I like this Romney better.

Connie on October 14, 2011 at 7:18 PM

I wouldn’t mind if Madonna gobbled my sardine.

He’s boycotting the debate in Nevada next week

I’m sure no one will miss him.

Knucklehead on October 14, 2011 at 7:23 PM

I will force spiders and badgers on the enemy and get them all to shut up.

Weird wild stuff right there…

We’d play Pole Position. It’d go “beep,” we’d go fast around the track…

Man, it was a good game!

BLR is the new JibJab.

Christien on October 14, 2011 at 7:29 PM

The voice at times is more Perry-esque than Romney-esque

Sounds like the same guy. If they worked a bit more to try to sound at least somewhat like their targets, as they did with Perry, it would be good.

lorien1973 on October 14, 2011 at 7:19 PM

Ain’t no tellin’ where or on what that nasty mouth’s been. You might wish to revise and extend your remarks, lorien. I’ve drank a few women pretty in my time, but you can never drink one “clean.”

TXUS on October 14, 2011 at 7:30 PM

Second look at this Romney?

hit and run on October 14, 2011 at 7:30 PM

Yeah, I throw fish at his tv, too. And his advice on not committing suicide might behelpful for conservatives should he stel the nomination b/c it’s going to look better than voting between him and Obama.

Amen, brother. That woman gets nowhere near my unit.

predator on October 14, 2011 at 7:34 PM

When BLR does Cain, I hope they shatter the Awesome Barrier and don’t use the same Perryesque voice.

Christien on October 14, 2011 at 7:34 PM

He’s a gremlin who left the party. Yep, he never said a truer word there.

However, he hasn’t spent $$ on robotics? Yeah, right. He is a freakin’ robot!

Lol

I’m surprised the guy who does Obama on SNL can’t do even a passing Obama voice, manner of speech, or mimic the body language.

whatcat on October 14, 2011 at 7:38 PM

Yeah, SNL fails at the Obama-imitation. They just can’t bring themselves to fully ridicule the ridicule-worthy, unfortunately.

The Bill Clinton imitation variety by Phil Hartman was just about as good as it gets (thinking back to the “Bill Clinton visits McDonald’s and talks about Warlords” skit).

Lourdes on October 14, 2011 at 7:43 PM

This is the first time I’ve head Romney say something memorable…

Paul Shanklin (?sp) does a perfect Obama …both voice and manner…on the parodies which Rush airs from time to time.

landlines on October 14, 2011 at 7:50 PM

Now, that’s some talent there. I’d love to see what they could do with the SCOAMF.

TXUS on October 14, 2011 at 7:14 PM

It’s been done.

pain train on October 14, 2011 at 8:05 PM

These Bad Lip-Reading vids are hilarious. I’ve shared a few with my 10-year-old son and he loves them. It’s gonna be really tough to beat out the Rick Perry vid though…sounds exactly like him. Ha.

RepubChica on October 14, 2011 at 8:09 PM

Aaaaaah. Okay. I feel better now.

applebutter on October 14, 2011 at 8:52 PM

I’ll be right back I have to go “Stuff the Ice Chest” Someone else should always interpret what Romney is saying…Wynona Ryder is out there with a guitar pissing people off…that’s a decent PSA it needs to go into rotation on the radio.

Dr Evil on October 14, 2011 at 9:05 PM

My momma is pudgy. I have faced it. What’s he talking about?
