Romney: I love American cars so much, I own four of ‘em

posted at 9:25 pm on February 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Pundit & Pundette and Mark Steyn. The money line (no pun intended): “Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually.” Problem or not? Every time he says something that alludes to his wealth, however inadvertently, I have the same argument with myself:

– Damn, that’s a red-meat soundbite for Obama’s class-warfare campaign this fall.
– Oh, shut up. Stop playing the left’s game by scolding Romney for his success.
– I’m not scolding him. He worked hard for his money. He’s entitled to enjoy his wealth. But not all swing voters agree, so why force the issue?
– Maybe more swing voters would agree if you quit whining about “optics” and defended his right to enjoy his wealth instead.
– You’re not going to talk people out of class resentment. It is what it is. Accept it as a political fact of life and deal.
– Betamalesayswhat?
– Huh?
– Betamalesayswhat?
– What?
– Exactly.

How’s this for a compromise: We’ll let Romney slide on talking about his many luxury cars if his campaign promises never again to hold an event in a giant stadium that’s 95 percent empty. Deal?

Romney: I love American cars so much, I own four of ‘em

Another reason to regard Romney as an imbecile.

Anyone with an ounce of sense that wants to keep a car for more than 40K miles buys Japanese.

nothing wrong with a couple of cadillacs to my ears

thedevilinside on February 24, 2012 at 9:28 PM

And I own two. So what?

*ok, ok, one’s a rusty ’59 Nash, and the other’s a Pinto, but it’s still two cars*

I’m no Romney fan, but this is a non-issue. The guy was successful… good for him. It’s his “the trees are just the right height” talking point that sounds strange to me.

“Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually.”

Though for Mitt from the beginning, I get an Imelda Marcos vibe with this quote. Doubly bad since the quote doesn’t show that Ann will make a great First Lady.

Sometimes, it seem’s he really doesn’t have a clue. How did a Bush ever get elected? However, I’m still voting for “I know nothing of your pain” than “pain is the way your must live”.

What we need is someone who has actually balanced a national budget, who was resposnible with taxpayer money, who for the first time in decades paid down the debt. But that was Newt… and he sucks… or something.

Good soundbite from Mitt, finally. This is how a successful American is supposed to talk. I hate people who are ashamed of the success they’ve had. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed that Mittens doesn’t get an earful from someone and apologize for this statement, which is a very good one.

Pablo Honey on February 24, 2012 at 9:39 PM

If the charge is rich people have a lot of cars. So what? I like having rich people where I live. The car wash does more business and so does the local car repair shop. The local government gets taxes and the vehicles need gas to run. People make a living off the gas vending and we buy Slurpees while we’re inside paying for the gas.

The problem is the guy in the White House bound and determined to force the car you need to drive down our throat. (How many thousand Volts are getting pushed on GE employees?) And the guy in the White House seemingly on a never ending crusade to drive the price of that gas up. There’s the story.

If I were a Candidate, I’d call the PM of Canada and tell him to wait for me to get elected and I’d make Keystone my first fancy pen giveaway party. On Inauguration Day I’d fricken do it.

Then I have 2 of them that are in restoration-project cars for hubby and sons. All Romney has to do is point out that people have to get to school,and work each day and need to have their own cars to get there. I’m not a millionaire but this is stupid to try to hit him with. I;m no Romney fan but the stupid in this hurts.Now can we discuss Michelle’s 16 vacations in less than 4 years?

I don’t have a problem with Romney’s wealth that he shies away from, but eagerly love to talk about. Its his outright lies that I have a problem with. Romney lied at the last debate

In the Republican Presidential debate Wednesday evening at about 8:50pm or so, former Gov. Mitt Romney said he never infringed on the rights of Catholics as governor of Massachusetts by requiring the Catholic Church to provide morning-after pills to rape victims–it was “entirely voluntary” on the part of the Catholic Church.

That is simply not true.

That is strange considering the first time he used it didn’t work too well.

From The Hill

The former Massachusetts governor also repeated a line that has been the butt of jokes by late-night comedians — that Michigan has good-sized trees.

“This feels good, being back in Michigan,” he said. “The trees are the right height. The streets are just right.”

Flora Duh on February 24, 2012 at 9:45 PM

OR

-A Harvard grad who went to work for a private equity firm. Bankrupted companies and shoves his wealth in the face of the poor man and also talks about how he despises and doesn’t care about the poor?

I hope Romney brings up Obama being a community organizer in the general election. Most Americans identify with poor folks than they do with rich folks because MOST Americans have been poor before…only the 1% are rich.

No matter how far in the tank you are for Santorum you will have to admit this is a stupid criticism or a guy that had the discipline to carry a double major at Harvard… easy ones like – business and law, who went into business at Bane and then WAS the business at Bane – My point is HEY he earned it!

People who are concerned about what other people have are unsatisfied with their own lives and unsatisfied with the riches they have. And if they live in America, they are truly blessed with riches that 99.9% of people who have ever lived have gone without.

Probably not a great picture to link to. I see your point though. And evidently, so did he.

Our current family fleet does not discriminate. (F)ound (o)n (R)oad (D)ead was a common phrase thrown at Tin Henry lovers in th 90′s when Cummins was kickin butt with Chevy.

The one who has a brother living in a cardboard box. What do I win?

BTW, why doesn’t Barky help George out? The guy lives on $100/year. Moochelle eats more than $100 worth of food-like stuff for her regular Wednesday afternoon gorge-fest. I mean, tell me again who would have a brother living in a friggin cardboard box and not do something about it. That’s just sick. Typical for you despicable, lying scumbags, though.

Barry’s counting on Aunt Zeituni (sp?) to send him a monthly stipend out of her welfare check. You know, the one she shouldn’t be getting since she’s not here legally.

Hey, where’s that Mercury chick that all guys went ga-ga for and received tons of marriage proposals? She made cars look good.

Nevermind. They’re being phased out!!!!

I thought I was reading a Conservative site, but judging by the author’s comments, I am guess he writes for the Huffington Post? He is some one who obviously has a hard time accepting that some one has the right to earn and spend their money as they wish. And believe me, if Mitt drove a Rolls Royce, this author would really be slamming’em.

By the way…Mitt could have a fleet of Rolls Royces is he wished, it says a lot of about his character that he drives American cars!
