Mitt Romney: “Truce! Uncle!”

Mitt Romney is asking President Obama for a “truce” that would put Romney’s Bain Capital career and his tax returns off limits during the campaign.  And in return, Mitt would…oh, it doesn’t say.

That’s funny, I always thought the word “truce” meant something that, you know, went BOTH ways.  Romney’s unspoken message was:

“OUCH!  You’ve found my Achilles’ Heel.  Please stop hitting it.”

His actual words were:

“Our campaign would be — helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns that we were only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon — business or family or taxes or things of that nature.”

An incomplete sentence and a run-on sentence all in one — Romney’s high school English teacher must be turning in his/her grave.

But wasn’t it nice of Mittens to agree not to attack Obama’s vulture capitalism career, his hidden tax returns or his secret bank accounts in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands —  especially since Obama doesn’t even have any of those skeletons.

WTF is he doing. He started running for office based on his business acumen at Bain, now all of a sudden it's off limits to PO. Like he even talks issues anyway. His whole campaign to this point was roughing up a bunch of D- listers on the GoOper side like Santorum, Crazy eyes, Perry et al. This guy really does not know what he is doing in the big leagues does he. No need to answer, because most of us here already know the answer and the lone idiot wouldn't understand anyway, so why bother helping her out.

This is the son of a bitch that bragged about his business prowess. He set that line up, and now he can live with what he's done.

Going to get even better, now that Paul Ryan is their VP choice. Who has made their choice this soon before the convention?

Let's see. Can't talk about Mitts' lousy record as governor. Can't talk about his record at Bain. No mentioning off shore accounts or tax returns. So what's that leave us with? His time as a Mormon missionary?

So if he were elected would we have to ride in the dog carrier on the roof of the car?

Jess: Oh, he still wants everyone to talk about Bain Capital, but only if you say NICE things.

JR: It's time for Romney to lie in his self-made bed of thorns.

Jess: I thought there was supposed to be contrast between the president and VP candidates. Two dull white-bread anal scrunch-faced bean counters -- I'm so excited I don't know what to do.

Demeur: He wants us to ask about the kinky things his wife does with her horses.
