Mitt Romney is mad, incensed, peeved, ticked, annoyed, miffed. He might well be on his way to a hissy fit. And what is getting his hackles up?
Barack Obama and his campaign have simply crossed the line – they have talked about him.
Really, Mitt? That's what upset you, bunky? The candidate on the other side of the aisle talked about you?
Why, that’s positively scandalous – clutch my pearls, who has ever heard of such a thing?
Remember hearing these comments during the primary, Mittens?
Talking about financiers like Romney who "loot companies, leave behind broken families, broken towns, people on unemployment." – Newt Gingrich
Suggesting that Romney and his company "wait until they see a distressed company and then they swoop in and you know pick the carcass clean and then fly away." – Rick Santorum
“They (voters) want to know what’s the truth. They’re not interested in a chameleon.” -Michele Bachmann
“Pick any other Republican in the country. He is the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.” – Rick Santorum
“Gov. Romney has claimed to have created 100,000 jobs at Bain and people are wanting to know, is there proof of that claim? And was it U.S. jobs created for United States citizens?” – Sarah Palin
“You can’t be a perfectly lubricated weather vane on the important issues of the day, whether it’s Libya, whether it’s the debt ceiling, whether it’s the discussion around the Kasich bill in Ohio, where Gov. Romney has been missing in action in terms of showing any kind of leadership.” – Jon Huntsman
And if you weren’t paying attention during the primary to what was being said by your fellow candidates, have you listened to what your fellow Republicans have said?
“If you have things to hide, then maybe you’re doing things wrong. I think you ought to be willing to release everything to the American people.“ – Alabama Republican Governor Robert Bentley
“I don’t think that Mitt Romney can legitimately say that he learned anything about how to create jobs in the LBO (leveraged buyout) business. The LBO business is about how to strip cash out of old, long-in-the-tooth companies and how to make short-term profits. All the jobs that he talks about came from Staples. That was a very early venture stage deal. That, you know they got out of long before it got to its current size.” – Reagan OMB Director David Stockman
“…..the problem is that Romney hasn’t shown backbone to stick with his positions.” – David Frum
“Romney, supposedly the Republican most electable next November, is a recidivist reviser of his principles who is not only becoming less electable; he might damage GOP chances of capturing the Senate… Republicans may have found their Michael Dukakis…” – George Will
“If Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, co-opted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me? I don’t think Romney is realizing the doubts that this begins to raise about his leadership.” – Bryan Fischer, AFA
Mittens, these are the people in your OWN PARTY! Did you listen to them at all?
He recently said: "The Obama people keep on wanting more and more and more. More things to pick through, more things for their opposition research to try make a mountain out of and to distort and to be dishonest about.
Pres. Obama and his campaign staff haven’t said anything that wasn’t said first by people in your own party. They haven't said anything that the American public hasn't said.
The problem isn’t that they’ve talked, it’s that you have refused to listen.
