Tweets of the day: Romney brothers bug each other

(CNN) - Not all is serious on the campaign trail, as two of Mitt Romney's five sons demonstrated on Twitter Saturday.



When their mother, Ann Romney, was told of the incident by reporters, she replied, "My Craig? My Josh?"

"They still haven't grown up yet," she said, laughing.

    It is a good thing that the press is covering the Romney brothers. All of us are bored out of our skulls reading news about their father.

    while the middle and lower class of America sent their sons and daughters off to war during the past 10 years NOT EVEN ONE of these 5 Romney son’s (all who were of military service age) served their nation during that time frame. No, not even one!

    Will any of Mitt's 5 sons be involved in this future "war"?

    While in FL, they should have visited the Everglades, and put pythons down each others' shorts.

    The whole effeot to make Romney "more likable" is a giant marketing scam. Romney isn't likable because he's a spoiled, arrogant, self-centered rich boy who's never had to develop social skills. People have always given him what he wants because he's always had money. If he'd tell the truth and release his tax returns we'd know the real man.

    The entire Romney family is so very bad at trying to pretend they are like the rest of us and this running theme that they are all pranksters is just so worn out and fake.You can tell Mitts is not doing weel as he has dispatched the entire family to try and make him look normal but it just does not pass the fake and pandering test

    "They still haven't grown up yet", suggestion, put them in the U.S. Military like many sons and daughters, that will teach them real fast, no time for pranks there.

    I really don't think anyone in the Romney family has grown up yet. This is not news CNN.

    I don't know, Should it be funny? Really it sounds like frat boys horsing around to me. Except these two guys are well over 30! Isn't it time for them to grow up! My brother and I are close and used to prank each other... but we grew up...

    There Dad is a prankster too. I bet you for $10K in time they will run for presidency too. I mean five of them. Dod has already two run under his belt if he loses he might comeback 2016 and then we have 5x X 2=10 that will be too much.

    Maybe they should have volunteered for military service , they would have grown up .
    It's hard to be leave they have kids themselves.
    As Ann says , "My Craig? My Josh?"

    "They still haven't grown up yet," she said, laughing.

    It is truly disgusting how much time they have to just "play" and flaunt their families out on stage during war time. Not a single one of these good for nothing boys shows any respect or decency for that. They just cruise through life without a care in the world, and expect everyone else to just cover their lazy, spoiled behinds and I can't imagine any veteran, or family with members serving voting for this clan to occupy the White House. Ann, please take your spoiled, rotten sons and watch them "grow up" out of the public eyes so we can continue to move this country forward without the dead weight of your family.
    Thank you.

    "They still haven't grown up yet," she said, laughing."

    Maybe they need to man up and join the US armed forces and back up some of the freedom and liberty rhetoric that their parents are spouting. No, I guess its better to stay at home and make some money from capital gains while others shoulder the burden of patriotism.
