Editorial Cartoon: Mitt Romney turns 65

Editorial Cartoon: Mitt Romney Turns 65

Former Governor and current GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney turned 65 this week proclaiming that he would not enroll for Social Security payments or Medicare.

For those unfamiliar, AARP is an organization in the States that has huge interest group focusing on those above 50 on age related issues.  It was formerly known as the American Association of Retired Persons.  Historically in the U.S. the retirement age has been 65 though you can get your AARP card which offers discounts on travel, restaurants etc long before that age.  In fact I knew a 30 year old once who had her card.  I guess all you need to do is send in your money and boom, there it is.

Oh and Denny’s is a national chain of restaurants that specializes in breakfast food.

  1. Well, one thing Romney and I agree on.

    Gotta love a Denny’s discount. There used to be a Denny’s in Sydney when I lived there which was 21 years ago now. I have never seen another one since. The food was great. I was looking forward to my Seniors Card when I turned 50 but then discovered you can only get them at 50 if you’ve ceased full time work. Now I gotta wait till 65. Stupid rules.

    Whenever I see his name I think of Oven Mitts

  4. Jim says:

    It’s never too early/late for breakies. Kinda like pizza, I suppose. Even when it’s bad, it’s still good. 🙂

    Love the toon, BTW. One of these days I’ll get a handle on the coloring thing, too.

  5. Mitt could not resist the pancakes or the savings I guess.

    • Bearman says:

      I worked in a similar restaurant when I was younger. Took me 5 years after I stopped working there to go back. I saw what the cooks did to the food and wanted to make sure they were long gone.

  6. Comedy Plus says:

    Denny’s has good food? I don’t think so. That’s a very low end place to eat. They have lunch and dinner to and the worst coffee in the world. To each his own I guess. It’s been years and years since I’ve been in a Denny’s and they are everywhere here in California.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

    Pancakes, mmmmm!!

  8. Scholar Mel says:

    I didn’t realize that Mit was 65. I thought he was in his late 50’s.

    I saw an AARP mag today with Sharon Stone on the cover. I remember when she was the happening slut in all the B rated Cinemax movies. Can I use the word slut or do you prefer something else?

    btw – My blogging break is an on again off again thing until July.

      You are getting to be like Tony with trying to find your posts.

      Go ahead, the loon’s f bombs have already banned my site from all corporate entities.

    Excellent cartoon my friend! Bravo!

  10. James says:

    20% off at Denny’s is basically free. Who could pass that up.

  11. lisleman says:

    I suspect Mitt and AARP have many different opinions on issues.
    I would rather talk about Denny’s. I ate there for a blog post once. They came out with a bacon sundae and I reviewed it in a post (all on my own dime). I’ll go to a Denny’s but not the one I did that time. I know they don’t all have the same quality. Do you think of Denny’s more as a breakfast or open 24 hrs. place?

    • Bearman says:

      Anyplace that serves breakfast 24 hours is a breakfast place to me. Waffle House, Perkins, etc etc. I know First Watch is considered a breakfast place to me because they are only open for breakfast and lunch. If a place served dinner 24 hours a day I guess I would call it a dinner place.

    Hey, who can say no to that Lumberjack special? “Oh, I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay…”

  13. Deb says:

    I really would like to know if there is a way to get email notification of your new posts. I don’t use reader, but do have you on my Google desktop, but it’s just not good enough unless I happen to look. Email would be a sure thing since I check it all the time.

  14. I wonder if he’ll have the Denny’s Maple Bacon Sundae? He might still be full from eating all of those cheesy grits.

  15. Funny, but at least it is one less person on the gov, bill.

    • Bearman says:

      Well technically he hasn’t retired yet according to him but if he loses the nomination he still has time to enroll in Medicare.

  16. Jande says:

    I think I’m confused (not unlikely considering the subject is political) But he turned down social security and medicare (thought you guys didn’t have medicare!) but he did sign up for AARP? And why is that a bad or laughable thing?

    *waits for enlightenment from the BearmanCartoons cognoscenti.*

  17. Friggin Loon says:

    That went quick Bearman. You come back early? I had a heap more drunken bears to post.

  18. Friggin Loon says:

    Can’t use his 20% off Starbucks as he’s a Mormon.

  19. jynksie says:

    Believe it or not, the richer the person, the cheaper they are. Having worked in the hospitality industry, I can tell you, they don’t like to tip, they fight for discounts and for getting money off their bill! You can deliver them drinks and food poolside all day long and all you’ll get is a “dont piss in the wind” as your “tip” of the day. #TrueStory

  20. Chris K says:

    Hey, I would take the 20% off. They do serve breakfast all day. 🙂

  21. Mark Stokes says:

    That bland smile, that newscaster hair, that milk-toast demeanor. Must be Romney! Good job, Bearman!

  22. Great version of Mitt! He would totally do that for a Denny’s meal.

  23. Jenn says:

    Nice one, Bearman! I learned something new today!

  24. Whoa! He’s 65? That Muppet doesn’t look a day over 50.

  25. Tim Green says:

    After 35 the only thing to look forward to are the senior discounts!

    I see you’ve got Jetpack installed now
