Skip to comments.Will 'the smirk' come to haunt Romney? [when the media need to bury you, their pit is bottomless]

That's quite some smirk on Mitt Romney's face as he walks away from the podium in Jacksonville, Florida, having just woven in criticism of Barack Obama to his reaction to the murders in Benghazi. The photograph was taken by Charles Dharapak of the Associated Press, and I suspect it's going to be one of the most significant images of the campaign. Maybe Mr Romney was just unlucky, but on the other hand
are you surprised? Honestly?

That’s all they’ve got? The MSM are desperate.
I say, Mr. Romney, embrace the smirk! They can’t shame you with something you’re not ashamed of. And you have nothing to be ashamed of. (It’s not like having adulterous sex with an intern in the Oval Office, then lying about it, for example.)
generally (proudly smirking for lo these many years)
Because at that press conference they saw that Romney will hold his own just fine against the Won - that he sounded presidential - and everyone listening could see the contrast between the "apologizing for free speech" Obama and Mitt Romney calling him on it and telling the world how he would handle an attack on Americans and free speech.
Of course not. Criticism is only for GOP candidates. They're evil. Obama is god.
Back in the days when I was dating my liberal ex-girlfriend, I honored her request that I watch Obama's inauguration.
I remember that there was video being broadcast of him in the waiting area just before he came out for his coronation. He had that exact same expression on his face as he prepared to take the oath of office. It was absolutely chilling.
Somehow this whole Libya-Egypt thing is being blamed on a man who isn’t even n government.
This is the one I think of the most, because it reminds me of the old Eddie Murphy routine:
"I got some ice cream I got some ice cream ... and ... I'm ...gonna ...eat ...it ....all."
"You don't have no ice cream! You didn't get none ! You didn't get none ! 'Cos you are on the welfare, you can't afford it. You can't afford it, and your father is an alcoholic!"
That was my take on it too. Romney is right on target.
I question the guys sanity.
Isn’t Damian the name always given to satan’s offspring?
Liberals are beginning to liquify in front of us.
He has that goofy smile every time you see him. Not his biggest supporter; but hearing this punk from the media trying to smear him really gets me angry.
They wanted to see enthusiasm from Romney and there you go.../sarc.
And once when he was in college- he took the pencil home from a written test!
That one may cost him his life. lol.
These shallow things called journalists, think they are running an American Idol contest. They are stupid as the day is long.
Thanks for the link. Have you seen this?
I agree with Political Junkie Too. The media recycles tired, old, denigrating catch phrases. If anyone types “Bush smirk” into a search engine, you’ll find that “smirk” has been used many times since at least 1999 in describing Republicans and/or conservatives and/or Christians.

mostly horrible, except mine
Not if we make it a fricking awesome MEME first?
