  1. Careful, Mitt. An illegal alien might have made that sandwich.

  2. Golly gosh, gee willickers.

  3. Ordering by touch screen? Amazing? I ordered like that a couple of decades ago at Arby's.

    Even better for you, muffin...er, mittens, is when ordering like that you don't have to come in contact with the folks working part-time, making minimum wage, and probably paying a greater percentage of their inadequate pay in taxes than you.

    Now that's convenience.

  4. What an idiot.

    The guy is so rich he's probably never had to actually walk into a store or restaurant to buy anything for himself. He just has someone else fetch him things, cook his food, do his housework. Touchscreens are only amazing if you've been living under a rock, or in this case, with a platinum spoon in your mouth for the past 30 years.

    And it's just so transparently obvious how he's trying to tell some folksy story to flatter and relate to the populist sycophants in the audience...and equally transparent how he completely fails at it.

    It's so ironic how the Tea Party Republicans have railed endlessly about how Obama is an "elitist," and now they're voting for an actual elitist. Hypocrites.

  5. Wait until he sees the "amazing" touch screen voting booths that have been in use for a decade.

  6. This is like that time Oprah went to walmart and almost had a stroke because you can buy a pillow for $10

    I await many more occurrences of Mitt making himself look like a mormom Marie Antoinette

  7. Being someone from the mid-Atlantic states where Wawa does exist, first of all, it's not "Wawa's". It's just Wawa. Let's go to Wawa. Wawa has amazing subs and slushies. While waiting for the attendants to pump my gas (I'm from NJ!), I stopped into Wawa to get a coffee.

    Second, I shook my head the entire time at Mitt Romney and then laughed SO hard at the reactions at the end.

    I agree this is a failed attempt at anything. Even the older generation and the rural population in areas that might have a Wawa knowhow it works.

  8. MSNBC did selective editing on this. Look for it to be walked back and an apology issued.

  9. This idiot doesn't even live on the same planet with the rest of us.

  10. Elsewhere in his brain he's busy wondering how many human sandwich makers can be eliminated.

    Careful Mittens, GW Bush told the Department of Labor to classify those sandwich technician jobs as 'manufacturing' and Obama can't restore sanity without having the statistics show an employment drop in that sector of the economy.

  11. Ugh, this guy is such a phony. Conservatives must be really desperate to vote for this guy.

  12. Remember GHW Bush at the supermarket checkout counter 20 years ago? He didn't know about "scanning" technology.

    Isn't it comforting to think how well clowns like this understand how you and I live?

    Posted by: DannyEastVillage | Jun 18, 2012 7:26:33 PM

  13. do people who work for a living actually what to vote for this? What the devil do they think he has to offer them? Even CARES to offer them?

  14. It's WaWa, not wawas

  15. I find all politicians painfully embarrassing when they try to be just like the rest of us - they aren't. They're almost all in the top 1% and they have gophers and servants, not to mention the odd secret service agent, looking after them. I doubt Obama has bought a gallon of milk at Safeways in a while. What's the point here? Do we really expect the leader of the free world to do the supermarket run after a busy day at the Whitehouse? I care MUCH more about their policy views than their shopping experience.

  16. "You mean that you can replace workers with a touch screen? I wish this technology had been around when I was working for Bain!"

  17. He called it a "touch tone keypad". What a maroon! A touch tone keypad is a PLL device found on telephones since the 1960's.

  18. Wait until he finds out about the iPad.

  19. Anything that keeps him from having to look at poor people with minimum wage jobs is a good thing

  20. I'm 31 years old and have lived in and traveled in damn near every state. I've been in gas stations, restaurants all across this country and I've never ordered a f**king sandwich with a touchscreen until this past year at a Sheetz in Pennsylvania.

    And I have to be honest, it was a "WTF is this" type of moment. I kind of understand where he's coming from, so I don't think this makes him look completely stupid...

    However, everything else out of his mouth makes him look like an idiot. Throw him back on the yam wagon and lets get this election over with.

  21. "wawa" is the sound of dismay coming from the manse kitchen when there is simply NO MORE panera! No probs tho, cook gets sent to town in one of the caddies to fetch more. And if REALLY necessary, we call on nabes Bunny Bixler to help us out of this simply GHAS-tly situation!

    Posted by: jrocket | Jun 18, 2012 9:10:04 PM

  22. Yeah, well, you used a "touch screen", to order your sandwich. Mitt used (in his own words) a "touch tone keypad".

  23. And the trees in Michigan are
    "just the right height"

  24. Obviously he has never been to an ATM.

  25. Mitt's coming to Holland State Park where the "doors" to an open public area open @5. He's been spamming mailers and robocalls to try to get people to come.

    I can't wait until he tries to pander to Holland. The dunes are the right height. The lighthouse is just the right red. It's a big lighthouse.

    Nothing of this man's policies and everything of his fast-get-this-damn-show-over-with pandering spree.
    Obama should make quick work of him in the debates. Keep running that plastic mouth Mitt.
