[Click above to embiggen: Image of Willard "Mittens" Romney getting shoes polished on tarmac juxtaposed with that of Obama fist-bumping a janitor...part of the Tolerant Left's tireless efforts to depict Romney as out of touch with regular Americans]
I just saw this on Facebook today — it’s the latest image the Tolerant Left is using to portray Willard “Mittens” Romney as out of touch with regular Americans. This is part of Barack Obama’s “Occupy & Persecute” re-election strategy, which replaces 2008 old-and-busted “Hope & Change” with unrestrained class warfare at a time when millions of Americans are suffering financially — and are thus primed to fall into the trap Democrats are setting for an emotional “Us vs. Them!” election.
Is this seriously the man that the Cocktail Party GOP establishment elite wants to send out as its standard bearer while the Occupy Wall Street types are being conditioned to make a frontal assault on Romney-as-classic-Wall-Street-Villain caricature?
Below the fold, read comments I scooped off Facebook showing you just how nasty things will get if Romney is the nominee — that “electability” thing the Romney camp keeps parroting is bunk, folks. See for yourselves:
Kim Curry If you read through the comments above, that is pointed out by those who posted the photos. The obvious point is Romney is so out of touch with people (measured by his continuous gaffes (i.e. saying the rest of the world doesn’t put hand over heart while singing their nat’l anthems (!)) plus eagerness to make a $10,000 bet, not wanting to release tax returns, and saying speaking fees of almost $400,000 wasn’t a lot of money). Maybe Mitt should have tried being a community organizer even for a week to see how the other 99% lives.

Ray Reasy If anyone thinks the picture on the left is anything other than a staged photo op, then you better get outside and live a life! I don’t care how far “above” the average man you are, you don’t find a shoeshine man on the tarmac everyday, the FAA would have a cow if someone tried that.about an hour ago ·
Morgan St Everest Dances I will work very hard to make sure Romney is not elected President but I am too attached to facts to not be informative while I do it: Mitt Romney, in this picture, is actually seated to have his shoes checked with a metal detector on the tarmac of the airport, not to have his shoes shined. In Being Liberal’s defense, Romney did in fact make a joke later insinuating he was getting his shoes shined but, alas, the iconic picture is more an example of public perception of Romney as a gauche elitist than it is evidence of that fact. And it IS a fact.
Lucas Barre damn obama’s suit looks amazing in this picture!about an hour ago ·
Hobbes Caltous you know… i know what this is SUPPOSED to convey.. but its not as if the president could get out of a TSA metal detector, were he not president. that’s all the guy on the left is doing.about an hour ago ·
Russ Clayton The difference in this photo is one man had a REAL job, worked in private sector, and created Real jobs. The other just pretends to and is no more a common man than the other. Looks like TSA is wanding Romney too, but that’s the liberal way to spin what they can honestly battle.54 minutes ago · · 1
Mike Olival Which one supports assassination of US citizens at his own discretion? Maybe we could focus on the policies and actions of people instead of biased perceptions of their personalities..52 minutes ago ·

Kyle Campbell Hey Anthoney Ray, if you hate the country then leave. No instead you stay and make yourself look like an idiot. Try learning about politics and realize that this goes on on both sides. The two party system is broken and anyone that truly thinks their side is completely right is only fooling themselves.48 minutes ago · · 1
Matthew Sullivan Congrats, you sunk to their level. Making an issue out of something that isn’t there.46 minutes ago ·
Michael V. Gossett Technically he’s scanning Romney’s shoes for explosives. Its just when you fly high end they do that instead of make you take them off in cattle call. There’s a whole lot of stuff we can rightfully go after this guy for, but this one is just misinformed. Bad look.45 minutes ago ·
Denise Blankley I agree with David they are both crooks!!!!43 minutes ago ·
Griffin Howland just so you guys know, Obama has cut public sector jobs for about 8 months straight now, and has been creating private sector jobs for about 24 months straight, causing our unemployment to drop to 8.3%, and another 300,000 Americans will get a job in the private sector this month so ya. Just a little ironic, cause Romney’s getting wanded by a TSA official (on the tarmac, but still) and Obama is fist-bumping a private sector guy. Like a Boss!42 minutes ago ·
Jay Schantz This would be a difference if Mitt was getting his shoes cleaned and not wanded by the guy.40 minutes ago ·

Lisa Roy I am not for Romney but this is a photo of Romney being scanned before his flight kind of unfair I love this shot of Obama26 minutes ago ·

Carolyn Horn Ganzelli romney…..idiot.15 minutes ago ·
Johnny Rice yeah, if you look properly, you see that he is being wanded – standard procedure for all flights if you must know but as you can see, he (not unlike Obama) doesn’t fly business class. This is two people of similar stature in two different situations. This contains no reference to Elitism.13 minutes ago ·
Jens Holger Thorsen interesting that noone comments that “obama has much better experience and skills to lead” relative to romney. people talk about gaffes, being out of touch, leels of humility, etc. how about competence and actual leadership? what has Obama “led” before becoming Pres? and do you think he is providing very good leadership as Pres?8 minutes ago ·

Jesse Gossett yes, in the first picture the guy is getting paid by the gentleman sitting in the chair… in the second picture the guy is getting a huge chunk of his income stolen from him by the guy fist bumping him. insult + injury.5 minutes ago ·
Trish McDougall On the left…a man who doesn’t hold himself out from required airport security. On the right…a man who stages photos to make it look like he “gets” the man on the street.4 minutes ago ·
Brendan Biesen I am a progressive and I would agree that Obama is a far better candiate than Mitt would ever be. Having said that I could in fact find a picture of each politician and frame them in the opposite sense. Its all about how you frame a person in the bias that you see fit. Go Obama! but this is jsut ridiculous.3 minutes ago ·
