Mitt Romney has attempted, on various occasions, to appeal to Latino voters. He knows they could be the key for him winning Florida, Colorado and Virgina. His problem however is that instead of including issues Latinios care about in his platform he’s attempted to appeal to them on emotive levels instead. Emotion being a can of spray tan. A little discussed part of the 47% tape was his comment regarding how easy it would be if he was Latino. But Latinos did notice. Perhaps none more so then Rosie Perez. Mitt’s feeling the Latino Heat!
This is sad. Americans, wait till you see the part about your flag. Unfortunately it’s not the snappy zinger or political analysis you’ve come to expect in this space. Sensata was a successful technology company that it’s employees built to over 1 billion annual profits. They all had great lives because of it. Then came Bain (which Mitt still owns stock in and profits from) who bought them and using the business model Mitt developed made a plan to ship their jobs to China. But not before forcing them to train their chinese sweatshop replacements. I’ll let them tell their own sad story though. If you wish to learn more be sure to check their blog at http://bainport.com
Perusing the polticalwebosphere (lets make that stick!) I’ve come upon so many “man pwns himself” style videos. Some of them are posted here. But I recently was sent a new one by a reader that was made before Romney’s debate and before he even really started campaigning. Mitt appears to have no problem defining the kind of man who will say anything to get elected and let flip flopping carry him as far as possible. Don’t worry about getting caught lying. If someone calls you on it you can lie about the lies. This used to be a tried, tested and true strategy in politics. However that was before the internet, alternative media and of course, political pwnage.
Here you have 20 straight minutes of Romney giving totally opposite accounts of what he ‘believes’… all from 6 months ago.
But wait! There’s more. So much more. This is why lying doesn’t work. It fuels your oppositions criticisms of you and they can make ads like this.
It empowers left leaning media programs to easily attack you like this:
And random people with time on their youtube hands make videos like this.
The reality is that Mitt Romney is in a battle with himself to fool the general public. If you believe him he is fighting it for everyone. But can you believe him? We try to be objective at Political Pwnage but it’s difficult when one man states totally opposite opinions on the most important issues the world faces and expects you to believe him.
After hearing Romney’s gaffe about airplane windows I originally thought it was an insignificant slip of the tongue. Seeing as Mitt has been a regular here lately I figured it wasn’t worth finding something to post. Then I found out that Mitt was really telling people that he didn’t understand why you can’t roll down airplane windows. And then I found out he was actually talking about rolling them down while in the air. One search on YouTube later and I found this gem of a family trying to do their part to help educate America. Hilarity ensues. Congrats Elijah. You just pwned the Republican Nominee. 🙂
