Skip to comments.Political "Death of A Salesman" : Romney's Pathetic Self-Implosion before Tampa (Vanity)
Posted on 05/04/2012 5:24:56 PM PDT by Patton@Bastogne
I haven't yet located Jim Robinson's post entitled "Frank discussion re our loss to Obama/Romney and the future direction of FR and tea party movement".
I'm sure that it's content was great.
I would like to be very careful in my next few words.
"Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin will be the 2012 GOP Nominees in Tampa".
I am neither an alleged spiritual prophet, or a pollyana madman.
I have worked much in politics, including with Pat Buchanan, Dole-96, Bush-43 (Florida "Ballot-Chad" Protestor") and Newt Gingrich in Florida this year.
Something in my gut intuition tells me that the O-Romney GOP E-RINO Campaign is in a state of "quiet fear and desperation", albeit in a stealth mode ...
Forgive me for the historic analogy, but the situation has a peculiar feel about it, similar to Gen. Patton's vague suspicions that the German Wermacht was "up to something" just prior to launching the 1944 Battle of the Bulge".
Yesterday (Thursday, 2012-05-03) a news report (via Fox News, of course) mentioned something about Condi Rice being a "strategic win" Vice Presidential pick for Romney.
That's peculiar, because Condi Rice has repeatedly said that she's not the LEAST bit interested in such a position ... ever. That's been Condi's staement for a couple of years now.
Why would Romney be floating such an idea (so very publicly, at the national news media level) ... when he's been crowned the presumptive "King Romney" by E-RINO insiders such as Karl Rove (ad nauseum) ?
Is O-Romney frightened by a recent (unknown) event ?
What about the Marco Rubio (Florida Hispanic "Wonder Boy") discussions about being Romney's VP ?
Have they secretly floundered ?
Did "Rock Star" Senators Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan see polling data that says that even if he becomes a Southern Baptist (next week), that Romnet is TOAST with the GOP Conservative Base ?
A peculiar quiet has settled-in among the GOP Conservative Leadership ... Newt, Sarah, Santorum, Perry ...
I do not sense that this is the "Quiet of the Vanquished" ... but rather the same "quiet before the storm" that saw General George Washington's suprise defeat of the Hessians at Trenton, a CRUCIAL turning point of the Revolutionary War ...
Newt Gingrich repeatedly discussed this EXACT metaphor during his (active) campaign ... especially the "Victory or Death" aspect ...
From the British Empire's perspective (or Fox News), wasn't Gen. George Washington's conventional military campaign "suspended", "defeated", "financially broke with furious creditors" ... with Gen. Washington personally criticized with having a "monsterous ego", "grandious delusions of victory", needlessly calling on his troops to fight a "lost cause from the very beginning" ?
I can easily imagine Fox New's Shepard Smith (and the other recent GOP talking-head) ... telecasting this Fox News report about Gen. George Washington's defeat ... and that of the American Tea Party, as well ... using the above words ... as a part of the British Empire's "official" propaganda messenger boys ...
Coincidentally, these were (approximately) the VERY SAME WORDS that Fox News and Townhall used to describe Newt Gingrich's political decisons over the past few days ...
Again ... those Fox News derogatory terms for your convenience ...
a campaign "defeated", "financially broke with furious creditors" ... with Newt Gingrich having a "monsterous ego", "grandious delusions of victory", needlessly calling on his troops to fight a "lost cause from the very beginning" ...
We Free Republic Conservatives are well familiar with the literary phrase "Who is John Gault ?"
Let me ask "you" (gentle reader) a question ...
Who is Newt Gingrich ?
Who is Sarah Palin ?
Who is Rick Santorum ?
Who is Rick Perry ?
Who is Herman Cain ?
Who is Michelle Bachman ?
Do any of these names conjure up character-descriptions like "weak", "afraid", "cowardly", "visionless", "foolhardy", "phony", "money-grubbers", "liars" ???
Hardly, and quite the opposite !
For me, every one of these men and women (from my perspective) ...
Conjure up words like "courage", "intellect", "strength", "character", "faith", "VISION" ....
So what's my premise here ?
"Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin will be the 2012 GOP Nominees in Tampa".
The O-Romney campaign won a Pyhrric Victory with his 650-whatever delegates "won" for Tampa ...
A tactical and strategic fool ... akin to Hitler's military genius (/sarcam-off) ...
O-Romney has butchered has own (potential) Infanrty Corps the Tea Party and Free Republic Conservatives) when he "carpet-bombed" his GOP Competitors (Newt, Santorum, Perry, Cain) into leaving the field ...
O-Romney "never once" articulated a "single" original "conservative" political idea the entire 2012 primary season ...
Not a "single" one ...
Obama defeats Romney in November 2012 ... period.
Marco Rubio, Colin Powell, Paul Ryan, Juan McCain, Condi Rice ... all know that ...
When Dan Rather (hail to Feeeper Buckhead) yesterday (2012-05-04) said that Romney might defeat Obama ... it's high-time to get the Bravo-Sierra knee-high waders on ...
O-Romney is toast.
And even Mittens knows it ... that explains the "desperation" move of publicly (begging) for Condi Rice to (please) come to Mitt's rescue ...
And Condi ain't buying Mitt's baloney ...
"Successful" (presumed) presidential candidates ARE NEVER BEGGING for Vice Presidential mates ... three (full) months before the GOP Convention's door opens ...
Romney is in "strategic" level trouble. Like the German Army at Stalingrad, he's sooo screwed ...
What happens next ? Funny you ask ...
1) Romneys Hollow-Support:
No one really likes Romney (including George & Barbara Bush)
The GOP E-RINO club (and Rush Limbaugh) only selected Romney because the other 7-8 GOP candidates wouldnt drink their Bain Capital betray America kool-aide
Supporters of Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman loathe Romney
The only folks who voted for Mittens were 75-year old-school Gerald Ford Republicans absolutely terrified that they were loosing all their stock-market savings and plus they dont really use the internet (FreeRepublic, et al) all these folks watch is ABC and CNN
Of course, lots and lots of Mormons voted for Romney which is why Romney dominated in Utah and Arizona and got clobbered in The South
Evangelical Christians the political boots-on-the-ground Infantry of any successful GOP Campaign are quietly scared to death over this Mormon Used Car Salesman
2) Genuine Conservatives REFUSE to Play the Juan McCain Game again in 2012:
Tea Party Members supporters of Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman loathe Romney
Again the political campaign infantry of the other 7-8 candidates believe (with good reason) that Romneys $$$ bought endorsements, and Willards despicable lying-through-his-teeth, and finally, Willards scorched-earth TV ad campaigns against Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and (almost) Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania
Make all these potential GOP voters and campaign workers vomit at the mention of Mitt Romney
The last time the GOP E-RINO establishment told us Patriots to fall on our swords for The Party (may its unholy pro-choice name be blasphemed forever) they gave us that ...
(fill-in-the-blank) Juan McCain who literally gave Obama the U.S. Presidency on a Silver Platter.
Not again, baby certainly not in 2012 !
3) The Secret Patriot Resistance is Already Born:
OK so Romney won a lot of delegates but still 500 short just like Hitler surprised the French in 1941
What to do, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman ???
Suspend your campaigns. Offer a token quasi-soft endorsement of Mittens.
Do NOT give your delegates to Romney.
The Goal ?
Willard stops the negative TV ads against everyone.
All the campaign money Romney still has left (aircraft, bullets, bombs, ships) sit useless in a warehouse.
No more casualties for the good guys Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman
And they quietly wait for the surprise counter attack in Tampa
4) Mitt Romneys Tsunami of Severe Verbal Campaign Gaffes until August 2012
Every week Romney says something STUPID
Every week Romney inches (crawls) back to his LIBERAL POLITICAL ROOTS trying to win-over the political Holy Grail the (highly over-rated Independents)
Every week genuine Conservatives QUIETLY decide in their hearts Theres no way in Hell Im voting for that LIBERAL idiot
Every week genuine Christian Conservatives QUIETLY decide in their hearts Theres no way in Hell Im voting for that Mormon Anti-Christ cult member
Every week Conservatives in California, Texas and 12 other (Primary Voting) states that the GOP E-RINO Club just tossed-aside will QUIETLY decide in their hearts Theres no way in Hell Im voting for that E-RINO Pubbie Imposter
5) Ten Days prior to the GOP Convention Sarah Palins D-Day Landing
On that day Sarah Palin the great conservative Peace Maker will assemble the entire group of 2012 GOP Candidates except Mitt Romney, of course
Sarah Palin and Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman
Sarah Palin will declare Mitt Romneys Candidacy a complete fraud their ammunition will be all the Romney Campaign Gaffes and (new-old-again) Liberal Mitt Romney political positions
Sarah Palin will (in her speech published on YouTube to avoid Fox News Censorship) will personally nominate the entire GOP Ticket
Sarah Palin will nominate Newt Gingrich for President
Newt Gingrich, when its his (choreographed turn to speak after Sarah Palin) will ask Sarah Palin to be his Vice President
As Sarah Palin returns to the podium to accept, she will them suggest that Rick Santorum be US Attorney General
As Rick Santorum gives his informal acceptance speech, he will suggest that Rick Perry be the Energy Secretary
6) An American Conservative Movement On Fire Again
Over the next ten days before the Tampa Conventions Opening Bell
All of Romneys uncommitted delegates will be invited to meet with all the above folks
Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman
Mitt Romney cant run any more campaign ads, because the primaries are all over Romneys Bain Capital Campaign Money is useless
7) The 2012 Tampa GOP Convention in August
Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin win the GOP nomination on the first ballot
Mitt Romney is forever politically exiled to the GOPs Planet Kolob to join his loser friends like Juan McCain and Bob Dole and Jeb Bush
8) The 2012 Presidential Election
Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin win the election in a Ronald Reagan Landslide
I'm sure I read that Newt endorsed Romney?
As long as we're dreaming - I want a PALIN/WEST ticket!!
It was reported incorrectly that Newt endorsed Romney. In fact, Newt suspended his campaign and said Romney would be better than O.
Thanks for the update. That's good news!!
I take a back seat to no one in wishing Romney’s implosion before Tampa, but I do wonder why so many people believe Sarah Palin would allow her family to endure the things that stopped her from running for President — for the second spot on a ticket for the second election running?
On the other hand, being a realist, I have prepared myself to have shake my head at even Palin if she goes the "pragmatic" route of lose by winning with a fundamental liberal.
I hope you're right. I'm praying for a miracle that includes Mitt Romney vanquished.
Romney will be the nominee.
Except.....Except.... I think the horse has picked up two ....maybe three ... notes.
ABO or R
I had a call today from an RNC fund raiser. I read him the riot act about Romney, McCain, Dole, Romney some more and rinos in general. Then went on to the disdain displayed towards the base and conservative candidates. Then the lack of testicular fortitude on the part of the GOP-E. Then made him promise to pass all that on to the upper levels of the RNC. I was in his ear for a good five minutes.
Perhaps she saw early on that the true conservative vote would get split 6 or 7 ways, leading to what we have now.
That’s why I’m advocating another Dan’s Bake Sale-type event in Tampa during the Convention: 80,000 of us making a
Last Stand for Conservatism.
I am not sayingthat necessarily replace Romney as much as remind him who he is gonna answer to.
I would hate to look back at 2012 and wonder what could have been if only I had DONE SOMETHING.......
One hundred thousand at Tampa with NUTS printed on their forehead. Might the delegates get a hint?
Isn’t that his name? [snicker]
Well, Sarah and the rest sure surprised DC with TEA in Nov ‘10... RATS and RINOS honestly didn’t believe it could happen, even though they saw it coming.
Is there any reason to believe the people who made Nov ‘10 happen have any less motivation to do something even bigger this November, when the stakes are 20X higher?
Under number 5 you forgot one person.
Put him in charge of the fed. Oh would that be fun!
I mean, as long as we are dreaming. While I hope what you say comes true.. I suspect we’re stuck with willard and his supporters.
Sarah Palin is not interested in the VP slot again.
Sheesh.. Get a grip.
Other than that, nice work, and very interesting speculation.
Thanks for posting that - - lots of food for thought there.
What's a shame is that most conservatives are apparently too cowardly to scorched earth those jerks right back.
