Gasp! Romney calls doughnut a ‘chocolate goody’

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Stop the presses… Mitt Romney is so out of touch he doesn’t know what a doughnut is. Romney just sealed his fate – he cannot be president of the United States.

The left must be more than a little desperate because they are having a field day over some comments Romney made at an event in which he referred to a chocolate doughnut as a ‘chocolate goody.’ Perish the thought.

“All right. So, here’s Mitt Romney, and they’re making fun of him for not being ‘one of the people’ and not knowing what a doughnut is,” Glenn said.

Glenn played some of Romney’s comment on radio this morning, and it is truly offensive.

ROMNEY: Thank you. Garrett, would you see that one of those chocolate… chocolate goodies finds its way into our lives?

As the son of a baker, Glenn has every right to be terribly offended by Romney’s earth shattering gaffe. “Does he like doughnuts? Let’s say the worst thing we find out – and this is just the tip of the iceberg, this is his Jeremiah Wright moment – he has a pattern of being around people that don’t like doughnuts. Okay.”

“If a guy turns out to hate doughnuts, I would rather have the doughnut – as a son of a baker for generations – rather have a guy who hated doughnuts in office than hated America,” Glenn decided.

As usual, the left has managed to turn this into a wealth issue. Obviously Romney doesn’t know what a doughnut is because he is rich, and, as a result, he is woefully out of touch with the American people. That makes sense.

“I’m pretty sure he’s had a doughnut,” Glenn said. And if he hasn’t, it is safe to say it’s not because he is wealthy.

“Is there any doubt that I’m not a poor man,” Glenn asked. “I’ve had a doughnut in the last 10 days. Doughnuts exist in the rich world.”

“Yes, they do,” Pat agreed. “The only difference between Mitt and poor people is he can buy more doughnuts than they can.”

If this moment proves anything, it’s that Romney is probably not the coolest guy in the world. But we have dealt with a ‘cool’ president for three and a half years, and we all know how well that has turned out.

“I would rather have a guy who’s nerdy enough to not know what a doughnut is because he’s been looking at, you know, financial reports and studying the economy than a guy who’s living the life of Leonardo DiCaprio, which is what we currently have,” Glenn said. “How is that working out?”

And if we are on the topic of being out of touch – isn’t President Obama the one running commercials with Anna Wintour, the ‘devil’ in the Devil Wears Prada?

Or what about when the Obama’s talked about their favorite meal being steak and arugula. Arugula… really?

“My wife and I were having some arugula just the other night,” Glenn joked. “It’s really – it’s really amazing, just amazing.”

    The leftists are completely losing it; attacking Romney in any and all situations they can, even where they have to make the incident up and spin it completely to the point of absurdity to try and make their points for their fanatical, rabid base this Nov.

    For the record, and as far as I am concerned, a CHOCOLATE DOUGHNUT is more than able to be classified as a “Chocolate Goodie.”

    God Help Us now.

    The leftists have picked up on the NYC governance idiocy of banning anything good to the tastes; and now by association are trying to make Romney out as being as dangerous and unhealthy for the nation as the leftists think sweets are for all of us.

    Yeh, but what if Romney insults a police officer and we have to have a “beer summit” to make things right?  Then what will the country do?  Who will organize the beer summit?  How will romney know which kind of beer to buy?  Never mind that he could fix Staples and the Olympics and all the other companies – how will we survive without someone to organize a beer summit?

      Somehow I don’t think Mitt Romney will insult peace officers or our military.  I just don’t think he will insert himself in every incident that occurs during his (Oh, PLEASE, God) presidency.  Personally, I’m more than fine with that.

      • Anonymous

        I disagree with your prediction about inserting himself in every incident. As an experienced and high level business manager, I think he understands the importance of delegating the small things and just worrying and getting involved in the major things – nukes for Iran, growing the economy, increasing employment, reducing job killing regulations, etc.

    I LOVE chocolate donuts, and I too have said save me one of those chocolate goodies, and the dumb people that I associate with knew what this dumbo was talking about.  Funny thing is many of us also know what Obama is trying to bring about, and we are willing to bet a dollar to a donut that it is Marxism.  We will be voting for Romney!

  • Anonymous

    I simply LOVE chocolate donuts and call them “chocolate goodies” ALL the time!  That’s what they are, for crying out loud!!  So, no, Mitt Romney is NOT out of touch with this lowly “well rounded” normal person!!!  If this topic is all the Dems and libs can think to pick on Mr. Romney about, that actually raises my hopes and spirits — kind of like a chocolate goodie (donut, to you snobs) would!!!

    Just one more (hopefully failed) attempt by Dems and libs to create divides among us — lol. What a bunch of ineffectual sillies!

      Yeah, RIGHT!  And do you call those flat flour breakfast items “panny cakes”… and a beer a “fresh-brewed combination of hops and malts other fermented yummy items”?

    Sounds like the opposing parties, especially the progressives, are now waging a food war.  Well, I’ve had both arugala and chocolate donuts—guess what, neither is what they are toted up to be.  Arugala, in my opinion, isn’t very good because it takes away the flavor of the other goodies in the salad; chocolate donuts are nasty even though many do enjoy them.  Now, if you really want a terrific donut, jelly filled powdered donuts are the best and that great plain jane iceberg lettuce can be fixed 6 ways to Sunday.  Point is, with the party grovelling adulation of favored food stuffs makes me think we will be voting for donuts or lettuce instead of human candidates.  Oh, by the way, obammy said his favorite food is arugala in order to avoid a fight with wifeypoo, meeshell; after all, there has been dozens of photo ops with the prezdic at a snack shack loading up on the finger-lickin goodies from the greasy menu while gulping down giant sized milk shakes.  Now there’s a double standard if I ever saw one.  Oh–did I mention I happen to be poor?  For sure arugala, if I liked it, would not be on my grocery list because it is expensive and if I do get a doughnut, I buy the wonderful powdered jelly donut (I’m partial to raspberry filled).

      Actually, Arugula is an easy thing to grow if you garden at all. Lettuces is half common my garden. Not at all a rich person item. Tasty, though.

    That has tobe one of the DUMBEST things I’v ever heard!  Criticizing a guy for having a brain burp?  Jeez!
    I ADORE  chocolate donuts and not only will frequently refer to them as chocolate goodies(because they are oh-so-good.!) but will frequently fall back on Navy slang and call them chocolate geedunk.  Blame my brother(ret. Naval Lt.) and my dad(ret. Naval CPO) for my vast knowlege of Navy slang!  That, and the fact that I’m a blue- and- gold blooded Navy brat.(g)
    Wouldn’t Odumbo have had fits if Governor Romey used that term instead?!

       They are scrambling to dream up things that they call “weird” about Mitt. O is 20 some  years younger than Mitt so I’m sure there are differences in what they call things. I don’t see a problem there.

    Well, I guess if you’re filthy rich, you have only dined on French pastries, so who would know

    what a lowly doughnut was?  Do you suppose Romney has ever eaten crawfish?  Or has B.O.?

    Do you suppose B.O. has ever eaten rabbit?  Perhaps Romney has.  It can be a tasty French 

    dish.  I’ve been privileged to have eaten both.  There were times when as a child the only meat

    that we could find or afford were rabbits and chicken, both of which we raised.   My mother,

    bless her heart, was a good cook.

       Pretty snarky!  Don’t know Romney, but I read when they married, in college they lived in a basement apartment where she taped carpet samples together to have carpeting..  It hit home with me, because I did the same thing living in Navy Base housing.  I taped carpet samples to have a rug to walk on.

      What does it really matter if he’s ever eaten crawfish or rabbits?  My own mother ate squirrel, but I won’t, nor will I eat rabbit.  I had crawfish once at a fishing tournament in Louisiana, but probably will not eat them again.  Does that make me appear filthy rich?

      A pastry is by looks (a goodie) never by name, because I eat them so rarely, whether they are French, American, Mexican or Indonesian pastries.

        alio,  what was the subject of this thread?  Did it relate to food?  And Romney

        not knowing what a doughnut was?   My comments continued in that vein.

        Sorry, if I offended your sensibilities.  

  • katmom4358

    Hate to tell you Glen, but I’m not poor and Our family and friends from my generation call a donut or anything I don’t get to have all the time a “GOODIE” I watch my weight and I’ll bet Mitt does too.


    I find it interesting that the media jumped all over Romney saying he is not fit for being president because he can’t remember a doughnut and resorts to calling it a ‘goodie”.  But, they didn’t say a word about Obama when he was running for president and couldn’t even remember the number of the states in the Union he was to lead.

    • Anonymous

       Obama went to 57 states and one to go,  Navy ‘corpse-man,’ (still waiting to see one) when in Hawaii he said “here in Asia,” talked about building the  “INTER-continental railroad?” (that’s on the ocean floor)  ‘UPS is doing fine, it’s the Post Office having problems’ hmmm?

      said “Speak in Austrian” (German),  spoke about HIS Muslim faith, told how he bowled like it was the “Special Olympics,”  On Memorial day he was there to  “honor fallen Hero’s, and many in audience today?”
      Talked about his typical white person grandmother, talked about the Spring tornadoes that killed 10,000 in Kansas (12 died)

      So, he is not immune to making many gaffes
      I’m with Romney, all pastry’s are goodies (never by a name)

    A doughnut is a chocolate goody, the best kind of doughnuts have chocolate frosting or filling. Apparently the left only eats bagels, which is a tasteless doughnut. So I can see why they’d be confused.

    I love a good chocolate covered donut without all of
    the chemicals used by mass producers.  What
    happened to all of the good bakeries in this country.
    They are getting harder and harder to find.
    I’d rather spend 50 cents more for a good donut than
    buy on the cheap and get sick.  At least Panerra’s
    makes there own bread and many good SWEETS.

    The progresives and everyone else would have probably been offended if he called a doughnut a bagel or something. Both have holes in the middle. At least he tried to remember the word. As far as anyone knows President Obama might have dome the same thing and instead of caling it a doughnut he might have been more specific and asked for a doughnut in the way it was cooked. If he specified “cake doughnut” or the fried dough kind he would have gotten lots of strange looks.

    Oh, I just remembered what Obama said several days ago.   He was talking about getting a thingamajig for something, like the furnace or whatever.
    I call most bakery things a goodie, because I hardly ever eat donuts and that stuff.

    I think this is a legitimate attack. Mitt Romney sounds less and less like a person, and more like some dolled up show dog to mascot for the republican party.

    Growing up far outside the everyday troubles of mortgage, bills, debt, and healthcare needs… Mitt Romney is more akin to an android. He might be educated, he might even have emotions. But he is not a “person”. He does not know a person’s struggles, regrets, or problems. How could he possibly know if he spent his entire life in some rich mansion, or at some ritzy college?

    I’m sure his maids know a thing or two about donuts and being a person in general. But I think Mitt Romney is getting off lucky just being portrayed as an overly sheltered tycoon, that is completely oblivious to what life is like outside the safety zone of his economic privilege.

    • Anonymous

      So you’re saying that the only reason you’re not going to vote for Mitt  is simply because he’s not a “person” becuase the word ‘doughnut’ slipped his mind? Then why the heck are you voting for Obama? Obama’s favortie meal is steak and arugula…arugula?? what the heck is that? I’d rather vote for a guy who doesn’t know what a doughnut is (Mitt apparently) than vote for a guy who HATES AMERICA and eats arugula (Obama)

    It wasn’t made to be such a big deal, IMHO, it was an aside on the news but let’s just continue to grind on the Dems always being wrong and the Repubs always right.

    If Mitt didn’t know what shoes were, if he didn’t know what a fork was for, if he didn’t know how to work a microwave, and even if he didn’t know that pushing the little ‘windows up’ button in a car made the windows go up, i would still vote for him.  Obama destroyed our country.  It’s time for him to go.
