Humor-Challenged Open ThreadPosted: August 7, 2012
Yesterday, in a speech in Stamford, CT, President Obama got off a pretty good one-liner about Mitt Romney’s tax plan, calling it “Romney Hood.”
President Barack Obama is labeling opponent Mitt Romney’s tax plan as “Romney Hood,” saying it takes from the middle class and gives to the rich.
Speaking Monday night at a campaign event in Connecticut, Obama said the GOP plan “is like Robin Hood in reverse.”
He also referred to Romney’s policy as “trickle-down fairy dust.” Obama’s comic timing was pretty good too:
Today, Fox News’s Carl Cameron gave Mitt Romney an opportunity for a humorous rejoinder. Sadly, Mitt is severely humor-challenged. Here’s his attempt:
“We’ve been watching the president say a lot of things about me and about my policies, and they’re just not right,” he told Cameron. “And, if I were to coin a term, it would be ‘Obamaloney.’ He’s serving up a dish which is simply in contradiction of the truth … he’s just simply saying things that are not accurate.”
Oh brother! Even Romney looks embarrassed. I don’t think that one’s going to catch on.
