Wonder Who Is Washing the Mitt Mobile

From The New York Times:

Mitt Romney, who has relentlessly wielded the issue of illegal immigration against his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination in the past few months, is facing an embarrassing new revelation that the landscaping company at his home in Massachusetts was found for a second time to be employing illegal immigrants.

Mr. Romney announced yesterday that he had fired the company, Community Lawn Service of Chelsea, Mass.


Original DVD cover.
I bet Mittsie was for the lawn before he was against it. I doubt pushing a lawnmower is within his skill set. This could be a sitcom!

The [Boston] Globe had revealed a year ago in the waning days of Mr. Romney’s governorship of Massachusetts that the company, which Mr. Romney employed at his home in Belmont, Mass., for more than a decade, was using illegal Guatemalan immigrants.

The episode was highlighted in last week’s Republican debate, when Rudolph W. Giuliani scornfully responded to Mr. Romney’s accusation that he had presided over a so-called sanctuary city for illegal immigrants while mayor of New York by saying Mr. Romney had a “sanctuary mansion.”

Hey, Rudy! At least Mittsie was paying for services. He didn’t use the city’s resources as a mistress’s personal staff.
Let’s hear what the other guys had to say:
Fred Thompson’s statement:

First Mitt Romney was for illegal immigrants working on his lawn, and then he was against it, then for it, and now I guess he’s against it again. Sounds like his position on amnesty.

Just wait until Grampa Fred wakes up and finds out the clever thing he said while he was napping!
Rudy’s spokeswoman:

I think it speaks for itself.

Whoa, deep!
John McCain:

I am more than pleased with the fact I live in a condominium.

Ha, ha, ha! You got your ass kicked for your stance on immigration, so you’re thrilled someone else is in the hot seat.

….And, by the way, kids, just in case you missed the story about the poor dog:
From Time:

The incident: dog excrement found on the roof and windows of the Romney station wagon. How it got there: Romney strapped a dog carrier — with the family dog Seamus, an Irish Setter, in it — to the roof of the family station wagon for a twelve hour drive from Boston to Ontario, which the family apparently completed, despite Seamus’s rather visceral protest.

Massachusetts’s animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal “in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon.

Who’s pooping now, Mittsie?

    You did such a grand job with this cover, amazing and amusing me yet again! I can’t make up my mind whether “The Romney Boys” sounds more like a silly C/W group or more like a silly sitcom. I’ve got it! It sounds like a silly sitcom ABOUT a silly C/W group!

    Boooooooo

    I am curious if the company that hired the illegals is now facing criminal charges and the illegals have been deported, or are they in line to get unemployment, which they are not entitled to.

    Booooooooo

  4. nonnie9999

    oh, stop your booing, trm. i would be willing to bet that no charges were brought against the lawn service owner, and i would also be willing to bet that the workers were not fired, deported, or receiving unemployment benefits.

  5. TRM

    Just a question, but do you agree with illegals sponging entitlements from your tax dollar?

  6. nonnie9999

    i don’t think it is as simple as that. it is a problem with many, many layers. while undocumented workers drain the system in many ways, they also fuel the economy in many ways. we definitely have to do something about the immigration problem, but painting these people as parasitic monsters is not helpful. they are people, for the most part, who just want to feed their families. the solution is many-fold. mexico needs to stop their system that rewards only a choice few. they need to spread the wealth instead of having just a chosen few ultra-rich, while the rest live in poverty. we can put a lot of money into punishing people, or we can use the money for more constructive pursuits.
    the bottom line is that politicians (and lou dobbs) will bitch and moan about illegal immigration, but little will actually be done. politicians are too beholden to corporations that make big bucks from employing illegals, and you can bet your bottom dollar that these huge companies will not be fined or punished in any manner. instead, we will have half the polticians screeching about how bad-ass they will be to get rid of the brown folks, while the others sit on their hands and do nothing, because the problem is too complex.

  7. TRM

    We will have to disagree that it is not that simple, everyday you see another illegal who has been arrested many times and set free back into OUR society, instead of being deported.

    “they need to spread the wealth ”

    careful, your socialist underwear are showing…
    does that count as an upskirt?

  8. nonnie9999

    i guess we will have to agree to disagree. i don’t believe that the percentage of criminals among immigrants (leaving their illegal status aside) is any higher than in the general population. if they are committing crimes and being set free, then that is the fault of the government for not enforcing existing laws.
    as for spreading the wealth, i am not talking about socialism. i am saying that the government should not fix the system so that a choice few prosper while the rest starve. fairness is not socialism, it’s just fairness.
    and stop thinking about my skirt.
