Skip to comments.It almost pains me to say this, but Romney is sounding good on Greta. Almost as good as Trump.

Right now, Mitt Romney is on with Greta.
And he's knocking it out of the park about our failed trade policy.
Hat's off to Mitt, even for when Greta set him up to criticize Trump with a total gimme, he moved the subject back to issues.
IMHO the 2012 race is off to a pretty good start.
Two of a kind - Trump and Romney (scam artists masquerading as “conservatives,”) except that Mitt’s hair is better.
I'm not among those calling for sainthood for Sarah Palin. But since you brought it up....
Per the Alaska Journal of Commerce, there was a purchase agreement between the city and the Nature Conservancy for the city to buy the 126-acre parcel for $146,500. At the time the city sought to purchase the property for a tourist development project. This was a deal already worked out between the two parties.
The Nature Conservancy -- even though the deal had already been worked -- sold the property to Gary Lundgren. The city subsequently filed suit to enforce its agreement to purchase the property. In July 2000, the city was granted summary judgment.
Lundgren bought the property already under contract for sale to the City of Wasilla. One who purchases such property would best serve his interests by ensuring that property wasn't pending a sale. A visit to the county records office and a little due diligence on his part would've saved him a lot of trouble. It's incumbent upon Lundgren to seek reparation from the Nature Conservancy.. not the City of Wasilla.
So how again is this similar to the situation between Trump, who approached Atlantic City with a plan to requisition the land of Vera Coking? Ms. Coking and her family had owned her property for decades.
The differences between the two cases couldn't be wider.
You mean thatr little home that Trump offered 1 million dollars to the little old lady, plus the Penthouse suite for the rest of her life?
It was her home. She didn't want to sell, so it was a moot point.
Ping to “Romney is sounding good” thread.
Hadn’t heard anyone mention that detail...
Pretty fair offer.
Are you kidding me? He sounds like mush. He certainly has no fire in the belly. Hed fold worse the Bonner.
Well ok before I get pounded too bad.
I’m just saying he did this once! Honest.
(I really like FR, and really don’t want to disappear in a sizzling cloud of ion vapors)
If we fail to put a tiger in the White House, who will ferociously deconstruct the Socialist matrix that's killing this country, then go after all of the unconstitutional agencies that enable that pillage, there won't be anything left to do but take the country back the old fashioned way.
Romney is as much a chameleon as Trump is (both are pure salesmen). Both will say whatever is necessary at any given time to win, but ultimately stand for next to nothing. When I listen to Romney I hear a very polished politician who wants political power for the sake of possessing that power - not because he wants to do anything worthwhile. His goal is to be President far more than it is to succeed in enacting an ideologically conservative agenda.
The only advantage to Romney is, in theory, he would be more accountable to the conservative base since he is closely wed to the Republican party structure. Someone like Trump could use the Republican party to win and then just wander straight off the reservation and pursue all the progressive/liberal goals he’s previously stood for.
Mitt will say the right things as the primary season closes, he will thread the needle and try to be the “grown up in the room”, above the fray, etc. He is a seasoned, smart, savvy politician, but it is impossible to know what he really believes in - if indeed he even has strong convictions about much at all.
Whoever emerges from the GOP primary will have my vote, but I certainly hope it isn’t Mitt Romney. I’d vote for him in the general, but with almost no enthusiasm. I want an intellectual conservative, with a conservative track record that demonstrates that person is committed to the cause of dismantling the social welfare state.
I have no idea if he’s running. And I have no idea why you are so sensitive.
Trump is really pounding Obama and I’m enjoying the heck out of it!
The Chosen one of the Country Club speaks.
Pray for Palin
I have no idea if hes running. And I have no idea why you are so sensitive.

Sensitivity isn’t the issue here... however I’m seeing quite a bit of it from FReepers who’ve jumped onto the TrumpenRino’s bandwagon. Yes, Trump is pounding Obama, and I too am enjoying it. But where was Trump in 2008? Oh, yeah...he liked “hope and change” back then.
He'll say anything you want him to say!
Just please, please, let him be President because he has wanted to be President since he was a little boy!
I really don’t see what magic underwear has to do with it.
As I have said before, “I have really liked most of the Mormons I have met”. I have never met Mitt. If it comes down to Obama or Mitt, with some difficulty I will vote Mitt. I do hope it doesn’t come to that.
Huck? I sure hope not, that would really be difficult.
As well. :)
Neither do I. I was only humoring the 'Gunner. But please don't tell him that.
That kind of thinking got King Obama elected. Any R would be better than the communists black Muslim. Better get your thinking improved or you just might get the King. Forget this third party crap or is it your belief it is better to split the vote.
Romney spoke at our state convention last summer and was actually excellent.
It pains me that we should ever have to have Trump and Romney as potential candidates from which to *chose*.
If the people in Mass. like you, you must be an evil SOB..
You and me both.
McCain was my last “lesser of two evils” vote.
What part of that don't you understand? If that bothers you, perhaps you should work toward getting someone else the nomination. I damn sure am.
Sometimes I think it’s better to have another term for Obama then to have a spineless RINO like Romney in the White House.
Things are going in the tank. Almost any RINO will only delay it and give the libs a straw man to blame when things get ugly. A real conservative would give us a change of direction, but with Romney it would only be a slow down on the same course to disaster.
What could happen, is our candidates - presumably of reasonable mental faculties one and all - will notice that speaking out, attracts America’s attention.
And do so.
It is not “bipartisanship” which Americans crave.
It is guts.
Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban
Pretty much a deal breaker there.
Wonder if Mr. Mitt could be pressured into flip-flopping on that one...

-1000 for Mitt.
Anti-gun RINOs NEVER get my vote.
And the Bushs have cut a deal to promote the new world order of change which Bush1 spoke about.

I've got Obama now, and had GWB before that, and the state of the Union is crap. Has been since Reagan.
So don't do the go-along to get-along finger wave bull crap at me. The go-along to get-along crowd and the any R is better crowd can't count on my vote.
You get your thinking right and DEMAND a decent candidate.
Or you are responsible for 4 more years of O.
Are you talking about “me too” Mitt? You know the one who waits for everyone else to lead the way and then says me too to whatever the crowd seems to like.
No way, Jose could I ever vote for him! Mittens has you fooled good.
Lipstick on a pig...
If enough of our people say “me too”, we got ourselves a convoy.
Don’t fall for it...DON’T YOU DARE!!!
I’m from Taxachusetts - t-shirt and all......
I totally agree with you JRandom! These weak-kneed wimp RINOs who will settle for anything with an R next to its name are the cause of our current situation and will be the cause of 4 more years of Obama if they keep pushing their liberal garbage on us while telling us we have to accept it or else.
So this is the GOP’s way of dividing the Tea party? The bluebloods are sending forth another great pretender who has suddenly discovered conservativism around election time. Surely we won’t be fooled again!
Ron Paul sounded about 10x better IMO. I used to be a card carrying Republican and just voted the party line but Dr. Paul cured my apathy.
Forget Romney. I will give you everything you’ve ever wanted. Vote for me!
Talk is cheap. Once in office, flipper starts doing his tricks.
Please don’t bother me with your pain - King RINO is not worthy of mention in my world!
They don’t even know what it means. From what I’ve read about Mitt’s old man, Mitt doesn’t qualify either but he thinks he does.
I can’t think of ANYTHING that would be worse for America than 4 more years of Øbama.
Unfortunately, I can think of a few things just as bad. RINOs gone wild. No thanks.
Reminds me of when I growing up, we lived off of a county dirt road and the county would totally neglect the road to the point it would get grass growing in it if we had rain. Right before election the county would get all the roads freshly graded or haul in gravel dirt, whatever. County commissioners wanted to make sure they got voted back in. It was never about taking care of the road...or the people for that matter- all about the votes.
