During one of the many recent Republican debates Mitt Romney offered to bet Rick Perry $10,000 that he didn’t edit text in a new addition of his book. This a perfect example of how out of touch he is with the average American.

While speaking to a group of unemployed people, Mitt Romney commiserated, “I’m also unemployed.” It’s kind of amazing how out of touch he is. Being independently wealthy with a net worth of $200 million is very different from unemployment, Mitt.
“I’m running for office for Pete’s sake, we can’t have illegals” October 18, 2011
Mitt Romney describing what he said to the company doing work on his property when he found out they were using undocumented workers. Keep it classy Mitt.
Newt Gingrich has been a jackass for a long time. I was reading through some amazing quotes of his earlier—which is how I found the one in this drawing: “I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”
Here are some other gems:
“The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”
“Gingrich – Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”
“The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”
“It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
“She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.” —talking about his first wife after divorcing her.
Earlier in the week Paul Krugman referred to Newt Gingrich as ‘a stupid man’s idea of what a smart man sounds like.’ Haha! I think this is perfect. Especially after Newt’s recent proposal to get rid of child labor laws so we can fire janitors and put children to work instead. Good one.
