Yes, But Who Is Richard Nixon Endorsing?

February 21, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, it’s almost nearly semi-official.

In a major development in the Republican presidential race, 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney will endorse Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) for president, The Huffington Post has learned from two Republican sources.

If Romney’s endorsement is a oh-dear-Lord-m*a*j*o*r* development, let’s just skid this mess right to November.

Also at the National Robot Convention, C3PO says he’ll loan both guys a personality.

    Well, Marco did get Ms. Haley’s endorsement the other day, so maybe Rmoney’s is the icing on Marco’s cake!! They both look like total doofuses!!

  2. Prup (aka Jim Benton) says:

    Amazing but true. Rubio would be — unquestionably — the most conservative, preacher-ridden, hypocritical Republican candidate since Coolidge. (Hoover was actually to the left of most of his party, so much so that FDR actually attacked him from the right during the campaign. Goldwater was nuts about the Cold War, and voted against the Civil Rights Act — but from a sincere doubt that the government had the power to pass it, not because he disagreed. Nixon was a paranoid crook and war monger, but he at least understood Keynsianism — better than some Democrats — and opened China.)

    And yet he doesn’t stand a chance because he is less awful than Trump or Cruz. He’s trying hard, sure — and it takes a regular follower of RWW to ‘get’ the dog whistle of “People think Obama has made mistakes, but in fact what he’s done was perfectly deliberate.” (This is a polite version of “Obama hates American success and wants to bring it down and make it a third-world country’ a surprisingly common meme on the right.)

    And, of course, the media will hype his apparent ;successes’ the way they will Bernie’s — not because they support his ideas but because it is simply to their financial benefit to have any sort of race going on before the conventions.

    (And it looks like Ted the Slimy is just too unlikable to get it — which is at least a relief.)

    Uncle Willard has some explaining to do. No relevancy for you, mister, until you share the story on how you and Jeb(?) determined which of you would be the loser in this campaign goat rope.

    Speaking of loans from C3PO, someone please loan Loathsome Ted a couple of robot children. Those adorable little girls were just as unhappy on stage with Mommy Dearest as they appeared to be more than unhappy with pops. Keep abusing your daughters, Ted, and do not be surprised when someone delivers a gohmert punch to you.

  4. DGIH! Has any candidate shown himself less capable for any executive position that Mr Roboto? On the other hand, he has displayed all the qualities of a good puppet.

  5. But do the 47% endorse him?

  6. WA Skeptic says:

    Rubio doesn’t even show up for the job he already has in the Federal Government; why should anyone think he’d even bother to get out of bed in the White House? After all, he can sign everything the Koch Bros send him with the autopen.

    And after all, Romney is a loser, too.

    What a pair of d****es.

  7. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Roboto Rutabaga has declared the snacibupeR goat rope as a “three man race.” He was almost correct. Marco is better described as a one man three legged race. But he keeps stomping on that middle one.

  8. Aggieland Liz says:

    Or he would if he could find it…

  9. JJ, now I’m picturing Rubio at the next debate with C3PO’s personality and it’s an interesting picture. And they think Bernie is an arm-waver….

  10. daChipster says:

    Rhea – I’ve been calling him RU-B0 – “Arr Yubee-Oh” – but it’s not catching on.

  11. Let’s face it. All they want is a puppet, to do the bidding from on high. (definitely not heaven) Rubio’s flip flopping on immigration has not won him many friends from the Latino community. Now with Romney’s imprimatur, he has nowhere to go but down.

  12. Marge Wood says:

    Just getting your picture taken standing with somebody else, someone with more name recognition, doesn’t always mean endorsement unless it’s the kind of endorsement that says “Oh, sure, he’s a nice guy, I know he’ll be great.”

  13. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    daChipster, sometimes “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

    I’d properly credit Miss Juanita Jean’s graphic artist, but would probably torture his name. John, forgive me, but I’m one of those special guys that can use cut & paste to produce a typo. But, if you would please: a robot, Marco’s face and an ahooga horn would help to promote daChipster’s: RU-B0 – “Arr Yubee-Oh”

  14. Ralph Wiggam says:

    It is going to be a good year for grave diggers. There are a lot of careers to be buried this year.

  15. e platypus onion says:

    Nixon has to endorse Bebe Rebozo. It’s a gangster thing.

  16. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    e platypus onion, it’s possible that Roboto Rutabaga is Bebe Rebozo reincarnated.

  17. Yeah, ’cause there’s nothing like getting the last person to lose the race to tell people how great YOU”LL be on your way down the chute.

    Still, I thought he was still trying for the Tea Party vote. Guess he gave up. That field IS pretty crowded, aamof.

  18. screecherguy says:

    A Mittens endorsement isn’t going to help Rubio’s flailing campaign. He’ll suspend his campaign shortly after he fails to win Florida. That one’s going to leave a mark.

  19. ‘Cause a Romney endorsement means so much.

    Romney . . . Wasn’t he the guy who lost?

  20. And in more exciting news: Millard Fillmore is still dead.

  21. If Reboto Rutabaga married Bebe Rebozo, he’d be Robot Rutabaga Rebozo. It falls trippingly off the tongue.

  22. Sorry, tripped on the first name. That should read ROBOTO RUTABAGA REBOZO.

  23. Well since the snacilbupeR are lining previous POTUS losers, why not dig up McCain (with the albatross still firmly hung around his neck), Dole, Bush 41 and Jerry Ford for endorsements? Esp Jerry Ford!

  24. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    maryelle, are you suggesting that Roboto Rutabaga marry himself in a graveyard ceremony, thus becoming Roboto Rutabaga Rebozo? That seems vain in a kinky sort of T-Rump fashion. Sure does give a whole new meaning to “politics makes for strange bedfellows.” Or, in the case of Crooze and Mental Ben, it makes for strange closet pals.

  25. e platypus onion says:

    Micr and while we got Ford on the horn, let’s impeach him for pardoning Tricky _Don’t change Dicks in the middle if a screw, vote for Nixon in ’72- Dick Nixon.

    Bebe is swarthier and more Greek looking ( and deceasder) than Cuban what’s his name.

  26. @epo

    I liked Jerry Ford from what I saw of him on the teebee. But I thought he played too many downs without a helmet when he pardoned Tricky Dick. I read somewhere that he pardoned TD so the country wouldn’t have to air out TD’s dirty laundry quite publicly. With the clarity of 60+ years of living I now believe Jerry and his advisors were wrong. After seeing Bill’s tribulations played out on the teebee I now think TD should have been subjected to the Constitution rather than allowed to resign with the inevitable pardon to follow.

  27. e platypus onion says:

    Nixon gave me the right to drink at age 18,but that was all any wingnuts have ever done for me.(and that right was taken away later) Nixon’s impeachment had bi-partisan support. Back then a few wingnuts had a conscience, yet.

    Then came gas lines,lower speed limits,expansion of the cluster in SE Asia,horsepower restrictions etc.

  28. Rachel Maddow is saying Mittens has yet to endorse anyone. That’s tonight, live from Las Vegas, at 8:00 PM CST.
