'Mitt Gear' discounts for Cyber Monday

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Cyber Monday lunchtime shoppers, take note: T-shirts, sweaters and zip-up hoodies from Mitt Romney's online merchandise shop are on sale.

Fans of the Republican presidential candidate can score 40% off of clothes bearing Romney's campaign slogan. Mobile subscribers to his campaign received a text message Monday offering the discount on all "Mitt Gear."

A zip-up hoodie sweatshirt with the slogan "Believe in America" was originally listed at $50, while short-sleeved T-shirts usually go for $30.

The campaign of President Barack Obama offered a similar discount on merchandise on Black Friday.

Here is the text sent out to Romney subscribers: "Today is CYBER MONDAY! As a mobile subscriber, you'll get 40% off all Mitt Gear. Use the code MITTSALE40 when you check out http://mi.tt/MittGear."

    I wonder if they are selling copies of the Natalie Wood movie "Penelope". Her co-star, Ian Bannen, who played her husband is a dead ringer for Mitt Romney. The look alike, talk and sound alike, and the character is even the rich president of a bank. It is almost as if Mitt Romney has modeled his public persona on this character. Google "Ian Bannen". It's Mitt Romney.

    Remember all the Republicans talking smack about the President when his site had things on sale, saying he was just bilking the public? I wonder what they think about this? Crickets..............

    Y'all are really funny, but I personally don't mind if my government leaders are willing to change their positions (note I did not say opinions as gov leaders need to keep their personal opinions out of politics) when things don't work as first planned. But then I guess I'm talking to a lot of people who still thing "wife beater" t-shirts are fashionable!

    Remember all the democrats who were all excited and bragged that they went and bought some of Obama's junk from the same article? At least most republicans don't fall for these schemes...

    I will give you benefit of the doubt, and that you are not stupid. This is how lies get out. The "Obama link" in the article that you are referring to is a link to another article that describes what Obama's web site had done on Black Friday. I need to point out that the linked article does not provide a link to Obama's web site, nor does it spell out the web address as this one does for Romney.

    Using your logic, this is actually a conservative conservative conspiracy.

    Was it "Made in the U.S.A."? I doubt it. At that price it should be. If not, then you got ripped off. Will it be shipped by the USPS? I would doubt that, too.

    Oh, yes, they do fall for those schemes. Just look at all of the books conservative ideologues sell. Look at the GOP field. You were just kidding us, right? Conservatives are always selling books and conservatives buy them in droves.

    I wouldn't want any Mitt Gear even if it was free and postage paid.

    This millionaire (Romney) wants to milk a he-cow in this bad economy. Why can't he give them away free of charge. He won't feel any pinch in his pocket.

    Mittens must have the Chinese garment industry working overtime, with no additional benefits of course.
