Gov. Mitt Romney Tells Hannity He Would Give Obama "a Failing Grade" - Video 12/17/09
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | December 17, 2009 | Brian

Posted on 12/17/2009 7:18:32 PM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Gov. Mitt Romney on with Sean Hannity tonight where he discussed the Democrats' push to pass a Health Care Bill in the Senate by Christmas.

On the economy, Mitt Romney said the Democrats have failed to create jobs, particularly with the Stimulus Bill passed early this year. Romney said "borrowing your way to prosperity" is a strategy that will not work.

Romney said the "American people are a lot smarter than the Democrats give them credit for." Romney said he would give Obama "a failing grade" on his performance as President thus far. Instead of focusing on what is most important, Romney said Obama is putting all his effort into ideological pursuits like his health care bill.

On Health Care, Romney said the Democrats will try to "come out with something," and that the American people will be "very, very angry" if the Democrats try to just "push something through." . . . (VIDEO)

LIBERALISM is the tool of destruction; the party is irrelevant.

I would argue that point, considering what party destroys things and has for over forty years. The party is not irrelevant. They embody liberalism. They applaud liberalism, and they are now pushing liberalism on America. The Republican Party never sought to destroy the greatest country in the world by enslaving the citizens within it.

That is pretty much true of every politician even conservatives, wouldn’t you agree?

The owner of this forum says this is a conservative forum, and that Romney isn’t a conservative. I happen to agree with him.

If you don’t agree, perhaps you would be happier on a RINO forum.

Hannity also has a man-crush on Pewt Gingrich.

Nope. If I thought that was true, I'd never cast a vote.

Cynicism is a retreat for those who lack courage.

TODAY the Republican party has power-players within it -- Romney being one -- who seek to destroy things the same way, and by the same means, as Democrats. That those Republicans claim otherwise doesn't alter the fact.

Case in point: Romney would enact laws prohibiting employers from discriminating against open homosexuality in the workplace; he would engage in crippling enterprise, production, and the economy in the name of "saving" the environment. He would give the government power over the private health insurance decisions of, and relationships between, individuals, their employers, insurance companies, and medical professionals.

The destruction doesn't originate in the party label. It originates in those who advocate finding solutions through bigger, more intrusive government at the expense of individual freedom. This is why third party advocates are so mistaken -- the solution isn't to attack any party; it's to attack BIG GOVERNMENT LIBERALS, and while it is true that they dominate the Democrat party, they are also very much in evidence in the Republican party. It is wrong to think that rejecting the Republican party would provide a solution; the solution lies in rejecting LIBERALS within the Republican party as well as those in the Democrat party.

Indeed, I maintain that it is considerably more urgent to reject them in the Republican party than it is to reject them in the Democrat party. Liberalism in the Democrat party is zero threat to the Republican party; liberalism in the Republican party threatens the very freedom and prosperity of the nation because it sabotages the Republican party's future as a bastion against big government liberalism.

No, it’s more than that...the owner of this site has an irrational hatred of Romney.

It’s very Stalinist of you to accuse anyone who disagrees with you to be a RINO. This is the same behavior you see in the Dem’s..perhaps you should join them

Really? I lack courage because I think most pol’s are corrupt?...That’s quite a stretch...34 years in the Navy, 2 tours in Iraq.....I don’t think I’ll worry too much that my cynicism is a sign of cowardice

Sorry, I was a Romney supporter in MA. He is exceptional even for a pol in how calculating and frequently adjusting he is in his positions according to the constituency that he is courting. He is off the charts in pandering.

Also, with that backdrop and more thoroughly dyed hair once again, he looks not only like a talking portrait in this interview—but like a portrait of Dorian Gray.

Those who have been impacted by Mr. Romney and his
fascist, liberal, shapeshifting tactics, do not think
being disgusted with his behavior is “irrational”.

There are way more RINO’s that have done far more damage than Romney...i.e Huckabee, McCain, Snowe. I don’t see Free Republic running non-stop hate postings on them. This smells like anti-Mormon bigotry to me

I was polite and pointed out facts about this forum that apparently don’t fit your views.

And you resort to name calling — calling me a Stalinist ... You are the one who is behaving like a Dem/Leftist — that is their pattern of behavior.

Romney is a RINO and no conservative, and this is a conservative site, and those are facts, and when told that, you get your panties in a wad. Go to a RINO site, rude one.

Jim, FYI, you might want to check this out: rman04554’s post #17 complaining about FR’s treatment of Romney, then my polite response in #24, pointing out that perhaps since the owner says this is a conservative site and that Romney is a RINO and therefore it appears that perhaps he’d be happier at a RINO site.

In post #28, rman04554 goes on to attack you (and calls me a Stalinist in the process for pointing out these facts about this forum to him). Have a great day, Jim, and Merry Christmas!

Since only Romney hides behind his religion,
and since only RomneyBOTs bring up the “antiMormon”-mantra
to avoid dealing with Romney’s past performance,
since no other Mormons have ever brought up Romney’s
ultracowardly claim of “antiMormon”-defense
of his rapacious gay, fisting, dictatorship,
and since other RINOs are absolutely criticized
(are you serious to claim Snowe is supported?),
it would seem your allegation is proven false.

no.. this is NO longer a conservative site ... as you found out this has become a name calling site.

God help you if you speak out against RINO’s

God Help you if you have a typo

God help you if a misspelled word gets in your text

God help you if you criticisze the precious republican party (little “r”) .. the dem lite party of the day.

That will draw the ire of the small thinking people on this board like a cowpie draws flies

And as soon as you speak fact showing the extreme absurdity of RINOS like romney, mcLoser, newt, julie awnies, powells and huckaphonies you will draw fire every time.

I’m called a liberal democrat all the time, in reality the reason I’m so vocal is that I’m tired of watching watered down conservatism. Dem lite. You had better vote RINO if that is your choice ... God help you if you voice a house cleaning is in order. No I will NEVER suport or vote for a RINO agin. I held my nose witth mcLoser ... next time I leave the block blank.

Ask anyone on this board to name 5 conservative senators with a spine or leadership capabilities. Ask for 5 reps with the same quals .... no one will answer yet many will give you you grief.

I seldom post anymore or read like I used to. its a waste of time with a few wasted morons. You are not alone.

Shhh, dont speak to loudly about Romney. Another post on this thread has the guy you are talking with reporting on your “pro-Romney” stances.

And yeah, McCain, Snowe, Graham, Crist and the like have far more impact right now. They are actually in office and can affect people. Right now, Romney can only talk. Its like Rush says, he has no impact on your daily life right now unless you let him. Some people seem to let him.
