I’m a little more confident of Republican victory next month if this is the best even Big Labor can do:

Actually I think that Romney does understand the people who pick up garbage… more than they think. Not that AFSCME would have bothered to look into it.

Frankly I’m surprised they didn’t go into more detail about what’s in Romney’s garbage. “He throws out brand new shoes, TVs and bottles of medicine just so the less fortunate can’t have it!”

Drew M. at Ace of Spades:

Here’s my question for the butthurt garbageman…Have you ever thanked Mitt Romney or anyone else for working hard to pay the taxes that cover your salary?

It’s bad enough so many public sector workers demand high wages and outrageous benefit and pension plans, now they expect us to kiss their asses for the privilege.

Oh, and there’s another similar ad out now.

We’ll find out more about Romney as soon as subsequent ads featuring his put upon paper boy and neglected mailman are released.

    If we have to "hug" our garbage man just because he is doing what he is being paid to do, and rather well I might add, then to be fair, we have to hug just about everyone that works. Shoe salesmen, nuclear scientists, Bain Capitol CEO's…somehow I get the feeling he is trying to get us all to feel that Mitt is not hugging this man because of the color of his skin…

    Or is it just me?

    is this moron for real? He is upset because Romney wont shake his hand or bring him a bottle of water or Gatorade? he gets paid to do the job, if he is re3ally so concerned about his health he sould get a desk job OR lose some of that weight he appears to be carrying. He is angry because Romney hasnt thanked him for his service.. I think this guy is confused… he isnt a war hero because of the tonnage of trash he picks up… he does a job that thousands of people wish they had… dont blame Romney or anyone, you shose the job. do it well and shut up about it That goes to AFSCME also. they are one of the worst unions in the nation, take what they can get dues ande throw people under the bus

    Because we see so many 55 and 60 y.o garbage men when we're out and about conducting our normal affairs? Dude, if you still think you'll be picking up trash at that age, just kill yourself now!

    Besides, the guys that come by my house have an automatic handy dandy picker and never get out of the truck. Oh and they're off by 1pm. The guy even looked ashamed to be doing the ad spot.

    Not to mention, in many places being a garbage man is no where near as bad as it used to be. I know my garbage man doesn't even have to get out of the truck. He drives up to the house and a mechanical arm picks up the garabge and dumps it in…..and then I have to go out and pick up the scraps that get caught in the wind and place them back in the can for the next pick up.

    I have to admit that when I first saw the headline I thought it said Onion Ad. Of course it would have made more sense if it had come from the Onion.

  6. Marshall_Will on October 2nd, 2012 7:16 pm

    Noticed our guys don't get out either. Of course we all know how, dreadful, the weather is year round in San Diego?

    Joyanna ( as usual ) NAILS IT. Anything to portray an insolent little GOP candidate as raaaacist. I'm also willing to bet none of Mitt's neighbors exactly jump thru hoops as asserted either. Even in gated communities, or should I say -especially- no one's been feeling all that lubby dubby the last 4 years?

    They're trying really hard to harken back to a bygone era when people did that. In my Cicero, IL neighborhood we left 6 packs of tallboys next to the can on Christmas. Then again, I was born in '59.

    Don't vote for Obama.

    He doesn't even appreciate his allies:

  8. jeffythequick on October 2nd, 2012 7:34 pm

    O/T: Chris Matthews' leg (and other parts) get all tingly again!

  9. Marshall_Will on October 2nd, 2012 8:02 pm

    Typical response. "It was not subjected to our regular review. Once it was, it was taken down". Works for Foreign Policy too!

  10. Marshall_Will on October 2nd, 2012 8:04 pm

    Good perspective as always. Here we are snubbing foreign leaders in a time of *global crisis* but they're stirring another WoG ( War on Garbage Men )

  11. SignPainterGuy on October 2nd, 2012 8:24 pm

    Rush was all over the "Lady Parts" voting urgency and made good hey out of it. Then about 2:30, he announced that the O`campaign had taken the page down. I figured they couldn`t stand Rush and others getting mileage off them.

    And now Drudge is saying that Foxnews is going to air a video of Obama from 6 years ago tonight at 9pm est. Here is some of what Drudge has listed about it:

    Obama's other race speech



    'My pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He's a friend and a great leader. Not just in Chicago, but all across the country'..


    'We don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs'…

    And the Daily Caller is planning on releasing the unscrubed version of the video on their site (perhaps payback for how their reporter who questioned Obama was treated).

  13. Granny55 on October 2nd, 2012 8:36 pm

    I thought it was a joke at first too – but nothing coming out of the SEIU, or any other union for that matter, is funny. When you subscribe to communist/socialist doctrine that is no laughing matter for our country.

    O/T but kind of relevant – here is a link to corruption trial of Kwame Kilpatrick, former Detroit mayor and Michigan State House Rep. There is lots more to come out but it puts the light on the cockroaches who wallow in all forms of our government. Power absolutely corrupts and it starts right in your little communities too. We need to be very vigilant – after all it is our taxpayer dollars that they are profiting from.

  14. SignPainterGuy on October 2nd, 2012 8:44 pm

    That sounds like it could be interesting, but I`ve already listened to Sheriff Joe for 45 min. today, lost serious IQ points for my trouble. I don`t think I can stand any more.

    Besides, we already know Barry Soebamatoro is a liar, a phony and a hypocrite !

  15. Marshall_Will on October 2nd, 2012 8:52 pm

    'We don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs'…

    Hey..! That's raaacist code for putting down White People!?!?!

    Don't get me wrong, we're grateful for anything The Daily Caller, or any of the rest of you can manage to bring to the surface but… if the uh 'tape' is 6 years old why is it just now..?

    So frustrating. 6 years ago I was armpit deep in Housing Bubble blogging/research. I guess we just assumed pol. types would be all over this! I mean this IS a thread about Mitt Romney's g-man, right?

  16. Truesoldier__ on October 2nd, 2012 9:06 pm

    OBAMA DECLARES HOW POOR PEOPLE: 'Need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office'

    'For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America'… Developing tonight…

  17. Marshall_Will on October 2nd, 2012 9:33 pm

    Luckily, there is some help from the Rosetta Stone people to help you understand then-Senator Obama and his dialect, care of the late Barbara Billingsley:

  20. jeffythequick on October 2nd, 2012 11:28 pm

    I'd love to find out that the automahoogie that picks up the garbage was invented by a company that was financed by…

    Bain Capital…

    That would be freaking hilarious.

  21. SignPainterGuy on October 3rd, 2012 12:40 am

    Romney does indeed know about "garbage men" – http://potluckbloggers.wordpress.com/2012/10/02/g
    He played one once, but not on TV.

  22. Granny55 on October 3rd, 2012 10:27 am

    Great catch SPG!

  23. Marshall_Will on October 3rd, 2012 11:02 am


    We need to get this out there and finish Teh Puke OFF. They can't even slander their opponents properly. Their dispicable little talking points are pre-refuted before they can even gain traction!

    I will say in support of my position yesterday, Brian Kilmeade on Fox innocently enough offers "The newly released video tape of the pResident from 2007 isn't really a bombshell as He has not governed in a raaacist way?" ( para )

    Are you an IDIOT Brian? Of COURSE He hasn't! ( He uses racist TOOL Eric Holder to do that FOR him!? ) Another example of the Conservative Media having WAY too much fun over the last 4 years, not wanting the party to stop?

  26. Granny55 on October 3rd, 2012 2:27 pm

    Yahoo Poll today

    Should a photo ID be required to vote?
    Yes = 79%
    No = 21%

    And from WLNS TV 6 in Mid-Michigan

    If the vote for president was held today who would you vote for?
    Romney = 85%
    Obama =14%
    Other = 1%

    Interesting comments made by the on air hosts after they revealed the vote count. One regular host is off today and one of the others remarked he was home voting for Obama and one of the other hosts commented if she was elgible to vote (she is from Canada) she would bolster Obamas count with her vote. All I was looking for was a weather update and all I got was a lecture from a bunch of local news dweebs that I should not be voting for Romney because they are all Obama lovers.

  27. backwoodsconsr on October 3rd, 2012 3:11 pm

    They insulted your intelligence while defining theirs.

  28. Marshall_Will on October 3rd, 2012 3:38 pm

    "and one of the others remarked he was home voting for Obama"

    Couldn't he have dropped his "absentee" ballot off on the way IN to work..? I know this voting early & OFTEN is complicated and whatnot but..?

    Shameless PLUG.

    I think everyone that's, you know, had a parking ticket, or speeding fine or an IRS assessment or even just renewing their tags should take the money they WERE going to use to pay that off and send it to ROMNEY..! :)

  29. Truesoldier__ on October 3rd, 2012 3:47 pm

    And then claim that they didn't have the neccessary photo ID to get into the IRS building, courtroom, etc….

  30. Duane on October 3rd, 2012 4:01 pm

    Did anyone else notice that "Charlie" was not only a retired corrections officer, but he was is also a retired city mechanic? Anyone…

  31. sizemorew on October 3rd, 2012 6:02 pm

    I think you're right that they're trying to imply racism. Shocker.

    Though by their logic in this ad, I should be given a hug after spending 8+ hours a day behind the computer programming. Where's my hug?

  32. jeffythequick on October 4th, 2012 2:51 am

    Apparently, so is @BarackObama:

  33. SignPainterGuy on October 4th, 2012 3:39 am

    Different "all overs".

    I read years ago, that gays often look at and enjoy heterosexual oriented porn, nude women, but still prefer men for their "live action" !
