Maybe he's born as Mitt, Maybe it's Maybelline

Last night Mitt Romney gave an interview to Univision TV in Miami before a rally at Miami University. The Miami Herald has a small photo gallery along with the article. Here is a sampling:

Let us look a little closer:

I decided to check other photo sources,and got this, via Huffpo (many are AFP/Getty images):

Here is a picture of him arriving with his son.
This is him at the rally itself.

Makes this comment all the more interesting:
That's one piece about me that you may not know. The other is just about my heritage—my dad, you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company, but he was born in Mexico. And had he been born of Mexican parents I'd have a better shot at winning this, but he was [audience laughs] unfortunately born of Americans living in Mexico. They'd lived there for a number of years, and, uh, I mean I say that jokingly, but it'd be helpful if they'd been Latino…


Here is Mitt From his hastily arranged press conference after news of his leaked fundraiser tape came out:
http://a.abcnews.com/images/Politics/ap_romney_120918_mn.jpg
And here he is at his RNC Convention:

I think that Mitt needs -- in a very desperate way -- a new makeup artist for his appearances with a television audience, in Miami -- and I am going to leave it at that.

When I can get video, I will post. Here is a snippet from CBS:


I ask you, is it me, or does he look terribly orange/brown?

Oh mittens, even my daughter does a better job with makeup. Have you been getting advice from the Mr. Boner?

*******

On a more serious note. My sincere condolences to the Mondo Family. I hope and pray they are all holding up well.


Comment by TriSec on 09/20/2012 12:58:53
That is unfortunate makeup. Look closely at photo #3 and note the skin tone differences between his hands and his face. Something is not right.

(History note: Nixon lost the first TV debates primarily because he didn't get made up. Kennedy did, and the rest is history.)

Dipping into the Speaker of House's Man-Tan supply, Mittens?

Hey I'm just asking the questions, because I would really hope that someone didn't decide to make sure he looked *brown* --

He was in Miami?

It *is* Univision, but he was likely pandering to a Cuban audience. They have quite different views on immigration, since most of them got here under blanket amnesty because Castro is a commie.

Yes, Miami... trying to get the Latino vote.

I know I went there -- but I have to be honest, I think these are valid questions.

Aren't you supposed to look tanned when you're in Miami?

Then you have your pasty white look for when you're in (one of your) home state of Mich....err.. Massa.....er Utah.

Could be a bad red vidcon tube in the camera.....(yeah I know....)

Comment by Raine on 09/20/2012 13:28:07
He donned a fake orange tan for UNIVISON.

I'm actually glad you said that, Rabbit. That was why I actually did try to show an array of photos.

I posted video from CBS -- looks like every camera -- still or video might be having the same problem.

Then again, Mitt did say he was fond of Snooki -- she was just the right size...

Mitt, Mitt, Mitt! Is there no bottom to your pandering? You are the whitest of white Americans. You have insulted people of color. Add that to your list, Jackass.

So, Mitt goes back to 1998 for a quote from Obama?

Wonder what we'd find if the media combed through Mitt's gubernatorial speeches from 2002-2006?

"I know you are, but what am I??" I can almost hear him saying this now.

You know that quote was chopped and diced to sound much different than what was actually said. (I posted a link from Media Matters about it yesterday)

I find it disturbing that Jesse Ventura thinks he is knowledgeable enough to speak of the Republican and Democratic parties when he won't acknowledge them.

HE's a broken clock imo.

MSNBC beats Fox!

Is a shift happening in the normally frozen-in-place world of cable news ratings?

It's hard to tell, but something unexpected has happened over the last two days: MSNBC has beaten Fox News in the all-important A25-54 category two nights in a row.

TVNewser was the first to spot the trend. While it may not seem like too big a deal for MSNBC to jump ahead of Fox News, it's rather surprising that it is happening at all. The total dominance of Roger Ailes' network is one of the biggest articles of faith in the television business. As Alex Weprin wrote, "The number one show in the demo on cable news is always, always "The O'Reilly Factor" unless there is some sort of unusual news event or huge booking."

But, on both Monday and Tuesday -- with neither a huge news event nor a huge booking -- MSNBC beat Fox News. Rachel Maddow's ratings in the demo on Tuesday were better than Bill O'Reilly's and Sean Hannity's. Lawrence O'Donnell's were better than Greta van Susteren's. Overall, MSNBC beat Fox News 575,000 to 526,000.

That he didn't watch the DNC or RNC debates -- that they are all part of the problem.

That they are the same....

Mondo called. He's taking the rest of the day off, and heading to the beach to kinda find a good space.

He sends his love.

Mitt is the person
For Forty-Seven percent.
Will they vote him in?

Obama is cool
While Romney shoots, then aims
There is a clear choice.

Ryan hates Grandma
Romney self-deports many
is this the US?

Chevrolet and pie
things that America loves
and GOP kills.



OK, I'll stop.

Type, type, as fast as you can! You can't stop me, I'm the Haiku-machine man!

Just looked at Nate Silver's blog. His November forecast shows Barack with a 75.2% chance of winning. Meanwhile his nowcast shows the President has a 94.4% chance. Just for perspective's sake, on August 22 his nowcast percentage was 62.6%. Here's hoping he has some long coattails November 6.

Seriously... at one point it looked like we might lose the Senate. Now it's predicted to be a 54/46 split in favor of the Dems.

The House is another story - I haven't seen anything based on data for that...

Say, have you all seen the national scandal brewing over our State Police drug lab?

Governor Patrick is finally getting involved.

Hopefully, this won't tarnish him any - it doesn't seem to be right now.


BOSTON (AP) — Gov. Deval Patrick has announced formation of a special unit to sort through tens of thousands of criminal cases that may have been compromised by the mishandling of drug evidence in a now-closed state laboratory.

The governor on Thursday named attorney David Meier to head the so-called “boiler room” operation.

Meier is a former prosecutor in Middlesex and Suffolk counties.

Patrick said in a statement that the unit will be a “clearinghouse” for information on cases impacted by the mishandling of evidence at the Boston lab, which was formerly operated by the Department of Public Health.

Patrick ordered the lab closed in August, less than two months after it was transferred to the control of the Massachusetts State Police.

Authorities have blamed the problems on a single chemist, Annie Dookhan, but have not said exactly what she is accused of doing or cited a possible motive.

TRMS - "Team Romney has the stench of a losing campaign"

A stink all Red Sox fans are familiar with. One benefit of the local nine of suck rubbing off on a candidate from Mass, I guess.

Sorry guys, I'm still astounded at the asshattery of Mitt Romney. Did you know that he's the son of a poor immigrant? And Ann's dad was just a poor coal miner?
So, in any event, yeah, I can put down my dad was born in Mexico and leave it at that. But his dad was in construction, very successful in Mexico, but in America went broke more than once. So my dad never had the money or time to get a college degree. Without a college degree, became head of a big car company and ultimately a governor. And believed in America, believed in the opportunity in this country, never doubted for a moment that he could achieve his dreams. And Ann's dad, my wife's dad, was born in Wales. His dad was a coal miner. This coal miner got injured in a coal mining accident; realizing that there was no future there for him or his four children, he came to Detroit and worked in the auto factories until he could save enough money to bring his kids over, which he did. And then they got together as a family and said, you know, to be successful in America, you've got to get an education. And they couldn't afford an education. And the kids and the parents said you know, if we all work, and we all save, we could afford to send one of us to college. And they, they sent my wife's dad.
