Tweeters mock ‘regular guy Romney’ pumping his own gas

2012 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has kept a low public profile after losing to President Barack Obama two weeks ago. A photo of an apparently wind-blown Romney pumping gas into his SUV has become fertile ground for mockery, some of it vicious.

At the end of the day Mitt Romney will just have to be content that he’s a wildly successful self-made millionaire.

Poor guy.

    We really need to stop finding fault or making jokes about every person in America! Our country is falling apart as it is and for God’s sakes…what good comes out of any of that? And don’t we have more important things to discuss?

    Can’t wait to see Obama pumping his own gas. Oh, wait that’s racist.
    My bad.

    • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

      Wonder if Obama ever thought of giving up his “salary” as an elected official.
      Like Mr. Romney did as Governor and probably would have as President.

      Is that racist, too? Dang.

      /searches for the racist code word manual they printed on the back of the Constitution.

    • SuperBoppy

      I’d rather see him “pass gas” in jail for all the illegal things he’s done.

    The difference between Romney and the dumbasses who are pushing this is that Mitt could buy the corporation that owns the gas station 10,000 times over, while most of these losers are worried about how they will pay for their next fill-up. Hilarious!!!!!!

    Well, let’s see.

    Mitt has lost his Secret Service detail. Not that any of them would pump gas when both their hands are to be free at all times. And did anyone who tweeted notice that, Heaven for fend, Mitt might actually be DRIVING his own vehicle?

    This is no ‘How low?’ the left will go.

      No, there is no ‘how low’ for them.

    The election is over, Romney lost. Win with some class, and let the poor man live the rest of his life in peace.

    • ked5

      they have no class.

      • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

        lol. It’s reddit. so… yup. no class.

        • NCRelite

          man you guys should’ve seen Obama’s appearance on Reddit, his grammar was so bad it was embarrassing

          • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

            I was thinking about being there for that, but changed my mind.

            After reading a lot of stuff on reddit, I also deleted my account and refuse to go back there. It’s just a bastion of leftist/marxist/elitist/idiocracy snark. Not worth my time.

            Too bad. It could have been such a wonderful thing, but they let the inmates take over completely. It’s leftist mob mentality multiplied exponentially by the anonymity of the internet. Ridiculous.

          • Zanshi

            Kinda like Fark. Too bad, because the owner is a libertarian-conservative. His idea got hijacked by the bigotted left-wingers.

          • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

            Yup.
            The majority of them don’t have a clue how indoctrinated they are.

            I knew when I was a teenager that the generation after me was full of precocious little sh*ts, but I thought they might grow out of it. Nope. They’re all on foodstamps & still shop at Whole Foods. If they have a job, it’s only part time “for spending money.” If they’re in school, someone else is paying for it.

            They think the Occupy Wallstreet movement & Anonymous are under the people’s control. They have no idea of how they have been played.

      Impossible — they didn’t win with class, they won voting for “revenge.”

        And cheating and buying off the 47 percent which is soon to be the over 50 percent.

  • herdingmice

    I’ll bet Obama has never pumped his own gas.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Gee, I remember a time, in the not so distant past, when regular people weren’t allowed to pump their own gas. Apparently, none of these people were alive yet when they still had gas station attendants. What morons!

    • redheadgrl

      in Oregon it’s illegal to pump your own gas. creates jobs and all that.

      • http://twitter.com/yahneverknowCB yahneverknow

        I got yelled at when there on a road trip & I got out to pump gas. Had absolutely no idea. Silly.

    When people really “win” they are usually so happy that they either forget about the one who lost or they feel sorry for them or they try to bring them into the winners circle. That’s what happens when you are truly happy as a winner, the bitterness, hatred and attack mode go away. But have you noticed that these people don’t seem all that “happy” but rather seek to find some kind of happiness in making fun of Romney? I have this feeling they know they actually lost.

    • Chrissy the Hyphenated

      Or they are addicted to their own hate-fueled adrenaline and have no idea what “happy” is.

      • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

        Or both.

    • Penmar

      Nah, most of them can only find happiness in someone else’s misery, makes them feel better about their own miserable lives.

  • stuckinIL4now

    I’m sure Romney always did pump his own gas. On the other hand, Obamuh at a gas pump is like Obamuh without TOTUS. These libturd haters who mock Romney, amongst others, are so pathetic they have no clue that if it weren’t for many of the investors and business people like Romney who supported inventors, there’d be no need to pump gas bcuz there wouldn’t be vehicles around to pump gas into and there wouldn’t be cellphones, iphones, smartphones, ipads, tablets, laptops or PCs for them to make twidiot fools of themselves tweeting their ignorance and hate all over the place.

  • michael s

    I hope Ann isn’t driving. We all know what Romney supporting conservative women love to do with their SUV’s.

    • FunRunnerGirl

      What a lame comment. Any respect I had for the left is gone, most are are vile and crass, greedy freeloaders. Anyone saying such a stupid comment like yours is the kind of man that will NEVER hold a candle to him or his life. Go ahead and mock, lefties, but as human beings, you’re despicable and don’t even come close to this man.

      • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

        Hey we can’t be too surprised at the vile progs — the major part of the agenda Obama “ran” on was “Kill Mitt” and the only reason they voted for a SCoaMF like Obama to get “revenge” on Romney for being a successful, hard working man who led a full life before entering politics and did it without the government’s help.

    • Danny Meeker

      Your attempt at being funny has failed. Please try again.

    • operanerd1986

      Drive them? (Seriously, your comment sounds like it’s supposed to be obscene in some way, but I don’t get it.)

    • Penmar

      We do, they load it with stuff, for those who need it more than they do, like they loaded their campaign bus with supplies for those in need because of Sandy. It’s called Charity, something you obviously know nothing about, hence your rude, obnoxious comment.

  • dkhilly

    Even with windy hair he’s still classy.

  • dftl

    Lol… EVERYTHING he does is wrong. Silly libs. God bless ya, Mitt!

  • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

    Much as I hate the idea that people are rudely coming up to him and snapping his picture, I also like the idea that a picture like this “humanizes” him. The Obama smear campaign had so demonized the guy as an out-of-touch plutocrat that people are shocked to see him at a gas station. I hope that more people will begin to understand that this is a guy who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty just like the rest of us.
    The only difference between him and the average Joe is that he looks presidential doing it. :)

    Who cares!

  • Brandon

    Most people forget that Mitt is 65 years old and I’d say he looks pretty damn good for his age. Let’s see how they look at 65.

  • Teresa Davis McCormick

    These a-holes have been fed the lies that rich white people have everything done for them. Idiots. And someone said he looks “deranged” pumping his own gas? Approach me at the pumps with a camera in my face..then you’ll see deranged! Wake up call for stupid sheep: Romney is a real person who pumps his own gas and pays his own taxes.

  • http://tvnewser.com/ Feliciena

    I also saw a picture of him during the campaign at the laundry mat doing laundry. I’m still so sad that he lost. I researched him before I supported him & found out how much of a good man he is, just doesn’t brag about it. Not just in money but gives his time. One of the best candidate we could have had but today’s electorate is way differerent. Once upon a time, God being booed at a convention would have meant a loss but nowadays it gets ignored. I think it is God’s way of teaching us a lesson when it comes to his loss. We don’t get it but when things gets so bad, we will.

  • TexasGirl

    Oh wow, to be mean because the man is pumping his own gas? But before the election, he wasn’t “regular” enough to suit them – but now he’s acting like a “regular” person, and that’s not good either. Why don’t liberals just admit they hate him? They hate all their opponents – that’s why it’s always personal insults instead of discussing different policies. Shame on them.

    Which in a way might explain why Mitt lost the election in the first place. He failed to really perceive and place himself amongst the many Americans where such daily experiences (ie the frazzled fighting for your life look…) are the real nitty gritty of mainstay existences, never mind flashy campaign dinners, polished coiffes and political hopefuls groveling at your feet.

    Maybe the Republican party ought to reflect on that now that have tossed him out to the curb….

    So the man pumps his own gas. What has O been pumping?

  • joy41

    I can’t wait to see Obama pump his own gas. Too bad it didn’t happen on Nov6th. That would have been awesome. But Obama thinks he is way to important for that. At least Romney knows how. Obama only knows how to use someone else’s things. He won’t pay for it …… We tax payers pay for all of his GAS.
