War on success: Jason Whitlock says Mitt Romney was ‘born sliding into home plate’

Sportswriter Jason Whitlock felt the need to slam Mitt Romney as someone who has never accomplished anything on his own. Same old, tired shtick we’ve seen from libs forever.

Sorry, but you don’t achieve what Romney has in life by being given everything.

    Ugh! I am sick of the jealousy of the Left… Jason makes more money than I do, should I bash him as someone who didn’t “earn” his way because of it? Should I demand he pay me a fair share of his income because he makes more? No, I shouldn’t.

    Jason Whitlock has only gotten to where he is because of affirmative action. See, anybody can play Whitlocks game.

      And Obama got to where he is by what? Oh yeah, he’s pretty and half black. Well, that and he sabotaged his opponents by forcing open sealed court records.

    Let’s assume that’s true, that Romney was giving everything he has. How is that a bad thing, exactly? Isn’t it part of the American dream to give your children everything you didn’t have?

    I’m pretty tired of bitter people who are jealous of the success others have achieved. Jason needs to stick to reporting sports and leave his opinions about coaches and politicians at home to fester with his other biased, racist and sterotypical opinions.

    Jason’s projecting again.

    I though he was in a 12-step for that…

    Well, when you lack talent it must eat at you, making it easier to seek refuge in psychologically projecting your fears onto those whose talents threaten you.

    This is s common occurrence with Progressives— since in a meritocracy such as the U.S. at the start of their movement— they pretty much were the leading examples of talentlessness.

    The metaphor is wrong; he was born after sliding into home plate and with a bunch of runs already chalked up.

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      A man who gave his inheritance away.

      Then went out and built his own.

      Gives 10%+ to his Church, 30% to other charities.

      Took no pay as Governor of MA.

      Took no pay for fixing the Olympics.

      He’s born at home plate & had extra runs credited to him?


      This your 1st time as a troll? Well, it shows. Don’t worry, everyone has to start somewhere… except the Obamassiah, whose SugarDaddy Soro, paid his way & bought a pResidency.

      If you plan to continue collecting paychecks from Prez!Stinky’s agitprop, you really should work harder, you know?

      Even Prez!Dingleberry won’t let such laxity slide for long.
