Day Three: Remnants of Romney

Exhibit A: Leftovers from Lui-Lui’s most likely deposited on this Village Green recycling can by members of the Romney Press Corps

All we have for you this morning, Early Birds, is a bunch of left-over pizza boxes from Lui-Lui’s in New Hampshire. As Woodstock Early Bird’s  mother used to say when holding up an old dirty sock found behind a couch,  “What would you like me to do with EXHIBIT A?”

The Mitt Romney visit feels a bit like a small hurricane: He’s here, he’s there, he’s here and now…we just are left with the debris of the visit.

As many of you probably know by now, Mr. Romey and his small cadre of national press took a drive yesterday afternoon over to “The Valley of the Damned” (i.e. West Lebanon) to conduct a limited number of TV interviews from a makeshift studio at LaValley’s Lumber. Then, we learn, from multiple press sources (since we did NOT follow across State Lines) that the entire motorcade stopped in to pick up some take-out pizza from Lui-Lui’s. Good stuff. But, ya’ know we have at least six places for tasty pizza right here along Route 4 in VERMONT!

In any case, today we are left with…Exhibit A (shown above). Thanks, we’ll clean that right up….

Here is the official Associated Press photo taken by Evan Vucci of our Republican Prez Nominee at Lui-Lui’s and an article  (from the Wall Street Journal) about the NH visit:

    Of course, Vermonters in general are so warm and friendly toward Republicans………


    • Generally, what’s always been particularly good about Vermonters is the respect people have for others’ choices and opinions. It’s always seemed that Vermonters are more “Vermonters” first rather than strong affiliates of one particular party or another. We’ve had some great representation, over time, in Congress and our Senate from both sides of the aisle. These folks have acted as free-thinking Vermonters, not as pawns of others’ political persuasians.

      Vermonters are generally friendly to those who give a wave or are friendly in return regardless of their political affiliation. You don’t give “the wave” around here you leave a bad impression…has nothing to do with Republican or Democrat.

    Why the heck are you guys so down on Mitt Romney??

    WEB Reply: In this very particular case, it is simply because he didn’t stop and say hello during his stay here. Very rude. Not the Vermont way.

    Not to mention he gave no one a chance to ask serious questions about the potential for his administration helping to dismantle social security and medicare; his own tax records; living wages; equal pay for equal work; access to health care and reproductive rights.

    We would have asked him how the money he has stored in off-shore accounts is actually going to help improve the U.S. economy?

    Romney takes advantage of Vermont by using it for the peace and quiet it provides to hone his skills at debating the current President.
    Then he runs over to New Hampshire to actually say hello and talk to folks and spend his money on pizza there.

    It’s just not how a guest should behave.

    P.S. Oh yeah, then he doesn’t even wash the dishes after dinner, leaves us the pizza boxes to throw out!

    (Others surely have other responses and reasons, this is simply WEB’s)

    Are Vermonters more open to all opinions than other people? How would Indiana, New Jersey, Texas, Louisiana, Connecticut, or Florida rate?

    He’d be fined $1,500 for leaving pizza boxes on the side of the road.
