Will Romney “Cop” A Plea To Impersonating A Police Officer?

Let’s face it, Mitt Romney is a weird and awkward person. This child of wealth and privilege is so detached from the lifestyles of average working/middle class Americans that he appears to be some sort of strange space alien or one of those pod-hatched clones from the classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” film.

Remember how awkward it was when, while standing with a group of black children, he said “Who Let the Dogs Out”?

Remember the story about how he illegally strapped his pet dog in a kennel to the roof (or is it ruuf) of the family car and drove 12 hours while the terrified pooch defecated all over the vehicle? Heck, even Fox News claims he is “unfit to be President” as the result of that heartless action.

How about when he declared that “Corporations are people“?

Do you recall when he said it was humorous when his father closed a factory in Michigan? He said, ““One of most humorous I think relates to my father. You may remember my father, George Romney, was president of an automobile company called American Motors …  They had a factory in Michigan…and as the president of the company he decided to close the factory in Michigan…”

Remember when he assaulted a gay high school student and hacked off his hair?

Well, now we have another disturbingly awkward  Romney moment to comment about. NationalMemo.com reports that, “When Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents of his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer – a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.” The article goes on to say that Robin Madden, a fellow Stanford University student with Mitt Romney, recalls that Romney “called him and two or three other residents into his room, saying, ‘Come up, I want to show you something.’ and when they entered Romney’s room,  ‘laid out on his bed was a Michigan State Trooper’s uniform.’” Madden also said,

“He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father. He told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler. We thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’ And after that, we didn’t have much interaction with him,”

The National Memo reports, “Romney may well have been breaking the law merely by donning a police uniform, committing a crime if he pretended to be a cop and a felony if he did so more than once. In both California and Michigan, any person convicted of fraudulently impersonating a police officer may be sentenced to up to one year in prison.”

Here is MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell reporting on Mitt Romney’s  dress-up game:

As far as we know, the Romney campaign has not yet “copped” a plea to this story.

HIGHWAY PATROL

 (sung to the Junior Brown song “Highway Patrol”)

Mitt’s got a star on his car and one on his chest,
He ain’t got a grip but he wants to arrest
Mitt’s mind has been lost out on this highway
So watch out what you’re doin’ when you’re drivin’ Mitt’s way
Mitt just breaks the law everywhere he goes
Dad’s the Guv’nor of the state. Mitt’s the highway patrol.

You know Romney and his daddy they’re both privileged and white,
Mitt’s siren a screamin’ with his flashin’ red light
If you’re not gay this might be your night
Mitt’s just keepin’ law and order for the radical right
If Mitt writes you out a ticket, then you better drive slow
Mitt’s just a doin’ his job, he’s the highway patrol.

Mitt’s the highway patrol, Mitt’s the highway patrol,
If your hair’s long then its gotta go.
He’ll be damn well dressed when he’s a C-E-O
But now Mitt’s doin’ his job as the highway patrol

(flip-flop break)

Romney’s drivin’ so fast like he shouldn’t do
Mitt’s dog on the roof is a startin’ to poo
He is in a race with a man who is black
Who let’s them marry if they’re gay, that’s a marriage attack
Obama and the Democrats have to go
Mitt’s just a doin’ his job, he’s the highway patrol.

Mitt’s the highway patrol, Mitt’s the highway patrol,
If your hair’s long then its gotta go.
He’ll be damn well dressed when he’s a C-E-O
But now Mitt’s doin’ his job as the highway patrol

Mitt’s just a doin’ his job
He’s the highway patrol.

The Strange Awkward World of Mitt(wit) Romney

Is there any wonder that even most Republicans cannot identify with Mitt Romney? This child of wealth and privilege is so detached from the lifestyles of average working/middle class Americans that he appears to be some sort of strange space alien or one of those pod-hatched clones from the classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” film.

Remember how awkward it was when, while standing with a group of black children, he said “Who Let the Dogs Out”?

Watch back in 1994 as he was losing his U.S. Senate race against Ted Kennedy, when Romney awkwardly implies that a woman is avoiding him because she does not want to be seen while she “hasn’t got her makeup on yet”, when in fact, she does have her makeup on. (Skip to the 3:00 minute mark of the tape or just enjoy the whole awkward thing).

Haven’t had enough of Romney’s weirdness? Watch this.

But we digress. Let’s see the odd stuff Romney has been up to just this week.

You may have noticed that gasoline prices have been dropping steadily for the last few weeks. Apparently Mitt Romney is unaware of this situation. Just last month he said, “He (Obama) gets full credit or blame for what’s happened…to gasoline prices under his watch…” OK then. Romney dished out all kinds of blame while prices were rising, where’s President Obama’s credit while prices are falling? Mitt…Mitt… are you out there?

Yesterday Romney said, “I’ll take a lot of credit for the fact that this industry’s come back…My own view is that the auto companies needed to go through bankruptcy before government help, and frankly, that’s finally what the president did. He finally took them through bankruptcy.”

Umm, not so fast there Mitt. The American people are not so senile that there their memories have completely faded. Everybody remembers Romney’s now infamous 2008 op-ed in the New York Times with the headline “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt”. In that column Romney argued that federal loans weren’t the answer to ailing automakers, and that companies struggling to stay afloat should enter a process that would allow them to “shed excess labor, pension and real estate costs.” Lending money to the automakers would be tantamount to destroying the industry, Romney wrote: “If General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye.”

Guess what Mitt? The American automakers did get the bailout from Obama and the industry is now thriving. GM and Chrysler accepted federal loans amounting to $80 billion and without the large federal loan, the bankruptcy process would not have been possible since the government was the only entity with the capacity to lend such large sums. GM just announced record annual profits, and regained its position as the world’s largest automaker.

Mitt Romney is a weird awkward alien who hails from a weird awkward fantasy-land.

The Great Pretender song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1oJuwkXr0E

MITT IS THE GREAT PRETENDER

(sung to The Platters song “The Great Pretender”)

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Pretending that he is so swell
His needs are such; he pretends too much
The truth he simply cannot tell

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Romney’s true beliefs are unknown
Mitt plays the game; flip-flops without shame
With no firm beliefs of his own

He was pro-choice he had us all believe
But when he faced strife, he switched up to pro-life

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
His opinion changes by town
Mitt claims to be what he’s not; you see
He wears his deceit like a crown
Romney is a flip-flopping clown

In Mass., health reform was what he achieved
He now says he feels health reform needs repeal

Yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Just switching positions around
Ol’ Mitt Romney is not what you see
He wears his deceit like a crown
Romney is a flip-flopping clown
