Mittsy's Got A Problem ... And It Goes By The Name Richard Grenell

He's at it again.
Remember when he was pro-marriage equality? I mean, before he was against it?
Remember when he was pro-choice? You know, before he was against it?
Remember when he was anti-working women--that was back in January? Before he turned on pro-working moms last week?
Now Mister I-Never-Met-A-Bad-Choice-I-Didn't-Want-To-Make is at it again. He's hired openly gay Richard Grenell as his new spokes-tool. And before we get all, Ooooh, Mittsy hiring a gay guy, let's take a little look at what else Grenell is besides being a 'mo.
Well, for one thing he is a Tweeting asshat, who apparently doesn't have the good sense god gave a goat because he has Tweeted some pretty awful stuff. But, like Mittsy, his boss, Grenell apparently doesn't stand by what he says because, since he's taken the job as spokes-toll he's been deleting his offensive Tweets.
Like, you know, they never happened. Like, you know, his boss does with every stance he's ever had. But, like the trouble Mittsy has with trying to hide his RomneyCare/ObamaCare ties, his marriage equality governing, and his pro-choice past, Grenell cannot unring his Tweets.
It was just last Friday that Grenell's Twitter profile showed that he had Tweeted some 7,577 times--according to a screenshot taken by The Huffington Post--but on Sunday, that same Twitter profile shows that Grenell has Tweeted just 6,759 times, and his personal site is no longer available.
But, like Mittsy's past positions, Grenell cannot hide his past Tweets, and they show us just the kind of spokes-tool he'll be. See, Richard, er, Dick, Grenell, likes to put down women in his Tweets, prominent women. Kind of like how Mittsy felt Hilary Rosen put down his wife. But, I guess, since Grenell works for him, and since Grenell seems to verbally belittle those who might be opposed to a President Mittsy, Romney and his team overlook Grenell's nastiness.
One Grenell Tweet advised MSNBC host Rachel Maddow “to take a breath and put on a necklace,” and another suggested she resembled a Justin Bieber.
Funny stuff. If you;re a self-loathing homosexual like Dick Grenell.
In another Tweet, where  Grenell also shows off his masterful use of spellcheck, he writes, “Hillary is starting to look liek Madeline [sic] Albright.” 
He has also discussed First Lady Michelle Obama working out and “sweating on the East Room carpet.” 
He has also asked whether Callista Gingrich’s “hair snaps on,” and on another occasion, commented how Gingrich’s third wife “stands there like she is wife #1.” 
This is the man Mittsy chooses to be his "spokes"-tool? Seriously? So, a man on the Romney payroll can attack and belittle women all the live long day, but if someone says something nasty about Ann Romney, Mittsy releases his Minions in their Magic Underpants?
When contacted about Romney’s hiring of Grenell and Grenell's subsequent, sudden, removal of his offensive online ramblings, a different campaign spokesperson referred The Huffington Post to a response Grenell gave to Politico: “My tweets were written to be tongue-in-cheek and humorous but I can now see how they can also be hurtful. I didn’t mean them that way and will remove them from twitter. I apologize for any hurt they caused.”
He's sorry now.
He's sorry because he got caught.
He's just plain sorry.
And he's Mittsy's problem; just one of many.

Motherism #7564 (to my children) never, ever, ever put anything on the interwebz that you would not want your mother to read (or your boss or the person you wrote it about)..

That's over 800 offensive tweets! Who does he think he is, Gilbert Gottfried?

Let the games begin. Bring on Willard and his lies. This is going to be fun!

I've wondered myself if Calista's hair is a helmet or not I have the common sense not to tweet that. Newt's campaign can't afford someone to re-tweet an answer.

Will J said...

Yeah, just sorry that he got caught. But, nevertheless a good fit for the RMoney "tell me what you want to hear" campaign in which there is no moral compass except expediency and self promotion.
