Is Mitt The Sh*t With Young Voters?

Is Mitt The Sh*t With Young Voters?
UPI
Do youths like Mitt Romney?

Urban Outfitters is a clothing store popular with young Americans who may fit into the young urban professional (yuppie), hipster or college crowd who in 2008 may have been labeled as synonymous with Barack Obama supporters.

Broken promises, adopting many of the war tactics of his predecessor and a dismal economic outlook for the future has seen Obama’s popularity with American youths fall sharply of late. A recent survey from the nonprofit, non-partisan Generation Opportunity shows that only 31 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds approve of President Barack Obama’s handling of youth unemployment. Among the age group, 57 percent say they will learn more about the policy positions of the Presidential candidates in the 2012 election than they did in 2008.

That is why, perhaps, Urban Outfitters has released a lighthearted T-shirt that may help the GOP appear less stuffy to young voters who shun some of the social aspects of modern conservatism while embracing the fiscal and small government ideals of the right.

One shirt, sold in a stylish cut well fitted for young people, is emblazoned with the GOP’s elephant and reads “Mitt Is The Sh*t.”

Another pictures an oven mitt over the candidate’s last name.

The store also carries Obama merchandise.

Of note, however, is the Obama campaign offers about 18 Web pages of merchandise — ranging from merchandise specialized for women, youths, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transsexuals, African-Americans, Latinos, nurses, environmentalists, Jews, golfers, outdoor furniture, kitchen goods and fashion accessories designed by big-name fashion designers among other things — on its website. The Romney campaign website offers only one page of merchandise that includes bumper stickers, sweatshirts, T-shirts, ball caps and other traditional campaign fodder.

    I must confess. When I was twenty one years old I voted for the peanut farmer. Needless to say, it didn’t take that long to change my view of the democrats. Haven’t supported or voted for one since. I just never bought into the “patronage” concept. If a young up and comer lands a job in the private sector or starts their own business, they are apt to soon realize the “fruits” of their production will always be “fair” game for the “patronage crowd”.

    Vote the party not the person.
    Seems like that might work.

    • Average Joe

      Vote your conscience…not the person or the party…. they are irrelevant. Always vote for those people who share YOUR views and YOUR values.

      To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

    Urban Outfitters also sells anti-gay T-Shirts so that should please the Republican crowd. I can see you all lining up outside their stores so you can be the first to get that message out.

    Mit is like a stuffed turkey waiting for the oven to warm up.

    Like McCain, he can’t muster the energy to kick BO in the AO, where & when the opportunity exists (endless opportunity). He just can’t question the pretender’s personal record, for fear of “offending” people who really need offending. GOOD GRIEF — YUCK!!!

    The birther – pretender issue needs digging! WE DON”T KNOW MANY REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT BO! When progressive reporters question Romney’s view on the birth certificate, college record, tuition, passports, etc., etc., it’s opportunity to question the perverted questioner… “Do you believe?” Then rattle off as many of B0 ’lies as you can stand to hear without throwing up… ending with “BO’s a liar – can’t believe anything he says… anyone know why all of his records are sealed for past 4+ years???” There is no insult or dishonor in questioning a liar – don’t ask me… ask him!

    Mitt may be the dog turd that rolled down the back window of his car when he had his dog strapped to the roof of his car resulting in the dogs severe diarrhea from fear.You got it “Mitt is the Sh__.”

    Mitt is (expletive deleted) alright, but the poor dumb (expletive deleted) that are voting for him instead of Ron Paul will learn soon enough that Mitt the (expletive deleted) is the FLIM FLAM MAN WHO FLIP FLOPS ON EVERYTHING he is already flip flopping on AMNESTY on 40 Million ILLEGAL’S, thats right 40 Million just check the 2000 census had 22-24 million Illegal’s in Country them, Immigration has 1 million crossing our borders since 9/11 and las three years with Obaminations open borders 2-4 million crossing our borders. Add 11,000 Americans murdered by Illegals and another 80,000 plus murdered by disease’s that they have brought with them and some of these disease’s we have not had here in 50 plus years. Take away from American workers 12-14 MILLION JOBS that Illegal’s have taken and Now these nut jobs in Congress (State and Federal) want to give special Favors to Illegal Children to go to College while American Parents are trying to find ways to send their Children to College. Our Congress State and Federal have lost their minds they are screwing Americans for Illegal’s and I don’t understand why one person in this Country agree’s with this TREASON. Romney is all for thius type of Moronic (expletive deleted) and his contender for Vice President Rubio has already endorced such behavour. Romney said he would not balance the budget first term which means he never will and he will add another $4 Trillion to our National Debt which will do the same thing that Obamination would have done. Romney will not audit the Federal Reserve or close it and we need desperately to do that or we will never get out of debt or stop the comming Hyper Inflation being brought on by the Federal Reserve and Obamination. This is the biggest transfer of wealth of the middle class in our History. The Last 4 Presidents and especially Obamination have done their best to Bankrupt the Middle class while their money grows by the Billions. Have any of you ever noticed when they (Congress) enter their first term they have some money but when they leave or voted out they are all Millionairs or Billionairs and they get cushy Government Jobs go on giving seminars for tens of mthousands of doillars or become Lobbiests and that should be banned because they have inside information on how our Government works. Let’s vote the (expletive deleted) out of the Semi White House and Congress and elect non Politicians like we used toi have REAL AMERICANS not the Corrupt Congress and Semi White House.

  • Gangbuster 2012

    You can say tht again”mitt is the shi#ts!!! But he will be better than what we have now!!!(which isn’t saying much,sorry mitt)

    • JerryWheelerWroteThis..

      And you know this, how Buster? Because he’s ‘new meat’..? Because the talking media heads say it’s so? Because your party backs it up with super pac millions? Well so was Obama and look what we created there (political separation, outright war in congress, etc., etc.) then you say ‘barely’.. You think even a wee bit would be better that what we have.. Your probably even saying, “it couldn’t be worse”.. I beg to disagree.. There’s still a war with Iran that’s on the back burner and you do recall when Mitten’s said, “Our greatest enemy is Russia”. Just imagine if he kick starts a war with Iran then excommunicates Russia and China (and possibly even India) who have stated that attacking Iran would not be prudent.. So, we will have cold war part deux where the only good thing that will come out of it will be the real interpretation of the word ‘Commie’.. Right now we’re tossing it here and there almost unintentionally but once we get back to the ‘good old commie fearing days’ we’ll know why we say it. If you think ANYONE will be able to get us out of this mess and back on track then you truly are asleep at the wheel.. The only thing we will accomplish will be replacing one evil for another but that’s our plan as we proudly spew, “the lesser of two evils”.. Good Gawd, now I gotta go gargle.

  • Jon

    Even if somewhat true, (expletive deleted) can at least do a lot more to fertilize the barren field America has become than a hot wind from Washington.

  • Pat Yates

    At least Gov. Romney has experience in life as well as in economics. This so-called potus in the WH now has little of the “life” at least in the USA and none of the economics or business of any sort except for “community organizer”. What nonsense. I am glad to hear that the young people of the USA will be using their good sense in this coming election. Now we will need to guard the polls to make sure there is no fraud or criminal actions by such as the “black panthers” or others – meaning the renamed acorn group.

      Romney is the problem not the solution.He is Wall Street with a big W.

      • http://www.facebook.com/martha.benton.3 Martha Benton

        Your problem is you have slurped entirely too much of the Obama kool-aid. Your brain is slush just like his is. Bet you even enjoy a dog for dinner now and then too.

        • Sharbel Raphael

          Martha, I do not support Obama, Romney, or Paul. I don’t drink coolaid, and as a Vegan I don’t eat dogs. Perhaps you took one too many pills Dr. Paul prescribed and feeling loopy? Check out his proposed DOMESTIC POLICIES WHILE YOU ARE SOBER. Where is your EMPATHY for your fellow Americans especilly the Veterans? Do you prefer a civil war? I don’t understand where you’re coming from.

  • CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON

    IF Governor Mitt Romney HAS TO “STOOP” TO SCATOLOGICAL ADVERTISEMENTS, HE MUST BE DESPERATE. IT IS BETTER FOR HIM TO LOSE THE ELECTION, THAN LOSE HIS DECENCY. THE T-SHIRT IS SILLY, ANYWAY – MANY BUSINESSES WILL NOT ALLOW ENTRY TO PEOPLE WEARING OBSCENE CLOTHING. A WASTE OF MONEY.

    “Is Mitt the Sh*T” with young voters?
    Nah, nice try, but not by a long shot. Love how now that Ron Paul is out, as if we didn’t know that about a year ago, the Right is trying to SPIN Mitt Romney. What a joke.

    I think it would be more accurate to turn the potentially affectionate label in question, “MTS”, into the true reality of how many Americans see Mitt Romney. Therefore, without further ado, lets remove the “Is” and turn the question, into a factual statement ….
    “MITT THE SH*T” …
    vola, reality! I’ve been calling him that for years, before it became fashionable.

    If this Gordon Gecko robot becomes our next president, our downfall will be that much more rapid, but then, perhaps that would be a good thing … hmm … which lever to pull, Main Street looses either way.

  • old hillbilly

    Who thought up the “mitT the sh*t tee shirt… Oboma??? It’d dumb & degrading… nothing cool about it, unless you’re too dumb to know the difference

    • jopa

      Romney’s dog came up with that one.

    • JerryWheelerWroteThis..

      Okay Hillbilly.. Let’s say the Dems and specifically Obama thought that up.. marketed it and put it out there for all to buy.. What does this say about the Pubs? Their not calling foul.. They seem to be smiling too and last but not least, they have actually complimented Obama for an idea gone viral.. (and you say Obama is useless).

  • Average Joe

    One too many words on the T-shirt? It should have read…”mitt is…Sh!t”

        The Last time I checked…Ron Paul is still in the race…maybe you missed the memo? Or maybe you’ve been listening to the MSM? Either way, you may want to find alternative sources…the one’s you are using are lacking in correct information.
        Maybe, Ru Paul appeals to you, but not to me (this Joe don’t play that way)….and Ru isn’t running for POTUS….Ron Paul… however….is.

    Having lived in the US for Fourty One years, I’ve lived through a lot of History and learned much. My Loyalties are with the AMERICAN PEOPLE NOT THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT regardless which Party is in the White House, or the Majority in Congress, or the Senate. There is no diplomatic way to put it that I believe the US Government is the deadliest ENEMY of the American People. The Government creates enemies abroad who revenge against the American People. The Government creates NATIONAL INSECURITY by it’s FOREIGN POLICIES.

    Remember that Iran/Contra was the ROOT CAUSE of the war with Sadam Husein and the Iraqi People, and that the US Government funded and trained the Taliban when the Taliban was at war with the Soviet Union. Also, Osama Bin Laddin and his Al Qayeda organization once had the support and friendship of the US Government in the begining.

    Enough with the political hypocracy. now is the time when the American People aught to consider candidates that are not enjoined with the Republican or Democratic Parties. Obama does not deserve a chance to “FOOL YOU AGAIN”, but Romney and Paul are not the Saviors of America either. Put on your thinking caps folks!

  • BunRoe

    Sharbel, you have a good argument but you must understand.. WE do not have a choice in the nominations.. We’re given ‘X’ amount of Pubs (or Dems) hand picked by some other force.. We do not know this ‘force’ but odds are we voted to allow them to do just that (as I haven’t read anywhere in the constitution about the people choosing and if it’s hidden in some obscure paragraph then all the more had we sanctioned this behavior). So, with a handful of hand picked candidates, WE must choose between them and only them and if we hear of someone we like, be it write in, punch or click, anyone other than the chosen, with their super pac, they will obliterate So, ” Put on your thinking caps “..? Short of an out and out civil war, there’s nothing to ponder so long as we have others offer their choices that we must choose from. We need to gain control over these criminals.. But how? They have the military AND the big guns that we ourselves armed them with.

    • Sharbel Raphael

      Peace BunRoe. If you think you are powerless, you will become so. Vote against them. It’s the only language politicians understand. Violence never solves any problems, it makes matters worse. We want a BLOODLESS Revolution, not a bloody one. The People need to unite to form a new party of the people.

  • Gangbuster 2012

    Hey Jerrywheeler First Point :I’m not joined with any Political party.I also said Mitt would be better.Second point:I did not say that Mitt. can get our Nation back on track.I’m not a mind reader,so what Mitt does if he becomes President will be his choice(Not mine).Its not my fault that there is a war in Iraq thats still going on.If Mitt attacks Iran,is that all my Fault? get realJW.Third point:There is no way Mitt ,and Congress both,can never hope to get us out of the mess we are in.(I know better than that,I’m not that dumd a##ed,I don’t know if you are , or not!!!)If you don’t know things could get worst That s YOUR fault!!!

  • Brian

    Obama and the Democrats held both houses for two year, the Democrats held both houses for the last two years of Bush. Now go back and look when all this trouble started, Barney and Chris were a huge part of the problem and it just lead to one thing after another, like a house of cards.

    • Sharbel Raphael

      I agree, Frank and Dodd added to the Realestate problems, but the financial crisis goes way back. Richard Nixon lay the foundation, and Ronald Reagan signed on China as a “Favored Nation”, hence millions of American jobs went to China. Clinton was not honest about his free-trade policy either, and George W borrowed from China to fund his two wars, but George W. Obama has shamelessly allowed the Wall Street thugs and the banksters steal from the American Tax Payers.

      Boycutting crooked corporations and banks can be a very effective weapon. By the way, I have been boycutting Chinese products since 1982, and so have my friends. I also do not shop at Walmart.

      Peace Brian
