Mittens dismisses $10K debate bet, criticizes President

13 Dec

The Associated Press (AP) is reporting Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential bridesmaid Mittens Romney is attempting to dismiss his offer during the latest debate installment to make a $10,000 bet with the Reverend Ricky Perry as merely “an outrageous number to answer an outrageous charge” – namely, Perry’s claim Romney made changes to parts of his book.

Mittens mewed he made the offer because Reverend Perry erroneously claimed he deleted parts of his book, “No Apology” referring to Romney’s support for a health care mandate.

Mittens told FOX PAC his bet offer was meaningless hyperbole, akin to saying “I’ll bet you a million bucks.”

The bet’s sparked charges Mittens, who’s a millionaire, is out of step with economic challenges facing ordinary Americans.

Mittens quickly tried to deflect such charges by claiming what the American people are tired of is President Barack Obama deflecting blame for his failed economic policies.

So, Mittens tries to deflect attention away from his own obtuse comments by claiming the President’s trying to deflect?

Mittens’ biggest problem is he is out of touch with the 99% of us who aren’t millionaires; he’s got no glue what it’s like to struggle economically. or to lay awake at night trying to figure out how you’ll make this month’s mortgage payment, or how you’ll feed your kids or keep the heat and lights on. He’s a rich kid, and his “bet” was the typical rich kid reaction. Claiming it was “an outrageous number to answer an outrageous charge” is an outrageous statement. To me, an outrageous bet is $10,000, to the rest of the 99% it’s an outrageous bet, to Mittens it’s change found under his sofa cushions.
