This is what happens when you try and ignore the Ron Paul movement

Via: EPJ, via Gawker, via reddit

You lose the election, end up pumping your own gas and looking like this.

"Mitt Romney at my local gas station [in La Jolla, California]... he looks tired and washed up," wrote Redditor/photographer mkb95.

Even when his misfortune...

...is good fortune for everyone else?

I'd say he's a few pumps away

I'd say he's a few pumps away from becoming this.

I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality. - John Randolph of Roanoke

Read my body-language, "I should have listened to Ron Paul"

Maybe I should watch his farewell speech again; study the text, and repent!"

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

best picture of romney ever.

best picture of romney ever. if he'd have used that in his campaign he mightve won har har. maybe hes makin a comeback as a workin' man.

But, but, but.....

I voted for him because he "looks presidential"! - said no one with half a brain ever.

What's more surprising

is that CA hasn't outlawed self-pumping, as a comment pointed out.

I know this is supposed to be a "how the mighty have fallen" sort of thing, but I fail to see the humor in it. The man is shunned by many and was cast aside by his handlers and sycophants. No need to rub salt in his wounds...unless pointing that out counts too ;0

After what he and his allies

After what he and his allies did to us, you're really going to stick up for him? He deserves MUCH worse than this stupid candid photo.



How is what I pointed out "sticking up" for anyone? Stop exaggerating. If anything I pointed out some of his actual failings.

And yes, the photo is stupid..but what does that say about those who treat it as some sort of comeuppance? It's a guy pumping gas for crying out loud.

Also, two wrongs don't make a right.

no shame in pumping gas

I also don't see humor. Let's not be so small, folks.

This is a candid photo of a man putting gas in his car. He doesn't look quite his best, but he looks better than I do half the time.

By all means, celebrate his political defeat if you like, but there is no need to just be mean. ...my $0.02, fwiw.

I'm voting for Peace.

imo we should be mean

he was a liar...he cheated and because of his shenanigans we have 4 more years of a treasonist not much worse than him...he sold us out and is a tool for the establishment...he would of been almost as bad as obama...he needs to be humiliated.

Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves...the land of liberty needs a regime change!

It is a useful picture

to wave at the next GOP candidate who thinks they can ignore the Liberty movement. Its good to have as many tools in your war chest as possible.

This guy is irrelevant now.

No need to waste more media time on such a statist goon.

This needs to go viral!
