Analysis of 2012 GOP Contenders Says Mitt Romney is "the Big Gun" - Video 1/29/10
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | January 30, 2010 | Brian

Posted on 01/30/2010 10:01:12 AM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here is a video report assessing who might run in 2012 for the GOP Nomination for President.

The report has analyst Teddy Davis saying Mitt Romney is "the big gun" because he has money and name recognition, and the GOP has a history of choosing "second-time candidates." Romney has been campaigning for other Republicans around the country and built a lot of good will. Davis says "Romney is considered the front-runner. Sarah Palin is the big question mark, as to whether she will run or not. The downside for Palin that Davis pointed out is that "3 out of 5 Americans say she is not qualified to be President."

Newly-elected GOP Sen. Scott Brown is unlikely to run, even though he has become an overnight star with his win in Massachusetts. Davis points out that Brown is not pro-Life, which would hurt him in GOP primaries. . . . (VIDEO)

Romney is NOT the “big gun” according to the majority of conservatives.

"3 out of 5 Americans say she is not qualified to be President."

That's a pretty dumb statement when you consider who is the POTUS right now. Obama has proven that ANYBODY can be president. He/she might do a lousy job but they can still be president.

“3 out of 5 Americans say she is not qualified to be President.” Talking about Palin.

She is inherently MORE qualified than any community activist lawyer turned 1/3 term Senator.

Romney might be a party pick, but not the PEOPLES PICK.
And the people are going to decide this time at the peril of the floundering GOP.

It appears right now that almost any one could win against Obama in 2012. If the Democrats run Hillary, for example, Romney would not stand a chance.

If Mitt Romney is the Repubs nominee in 2012, I will not vote. He will make sure we have Federal health care and, of course, a much larger government. He will continue where Obama stopped to make sure we lose our freedom where health care is concerned.

A 'big gun' for who? The RINOs? Those in the party who want to lose in 2012? Look, we can't endorse a governor who actually implemented the same kind of healthcare system the entire Tea Party movement grew up against, that the current occupant in the White House is trying to do nationwide. Obamacare IS Masscare x 50. There's no way we aren't hypocrites if Romney is the 'big gun'.

I doubt Palin will run. I know that statement inflames some people; but, her emphasis right now seems to be on making some money to pay her bills. She has alot of time for on on political career, but would risk going into obscurity if she lost to Obama again.

Romney - I think the time is now for the RNC to change the primary rules, or we may get stuck with him....but Steele probably loves Romney.

I want Fred! But I doubt he’ll run.

Brown - are they kidding?

Obama knows the SCoTUS will stand in his way to become dictator after the birth certificate/legal citizen trial, now in progress, is completed.

That’s why he is belittling the courts now with objective obfuscation.

Good grief .. don’t we ever learn anything from our past mistakes. WE NEED A WINNER .. SOMEBODY WHO KNOWS WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT AMERICA IS ALL ABOUT .. not just some good looking guy who can balance a bank statement.

AND .. IN CASE ANYBODY HAS BEEN READING ANY OF THE MANY POLLS OUT THERE .. IT’S NOT ROMNEY WHO IS LEADING THE PACK .. BUT SARAH PALIN.

Hmmmm ..?? Is that the reason the moderates have begun to push Romney on us ..??

Why not?

I know that statement inflames some people;”

Why would it? Someone telling you that you are wrong is not equal to someone being “inflamed” about anything.

but, her emphasis right now seems to be on making some money to pay her bills.”

She already made at already $8 million from her book(which has sold at least 2 million copies by now). Her legal bills were around only $500,000. Plus Fox is probably paying her at least $1 milion a year as a Fox News contributer, because of her ability to attract very high ratings.
She has by far more money today, than she has ever had in her entire life.

She has alot of time for on on political career, but would risk going into obscurity if she lost to Obama again”

She would be in even bigger political obscurity of she waited another 7 years from now before running.

It came out very clearly during the 2008 Campaign that Romney has changed his colors on issue after issue to make himself appear to be conservative now.

Many of those issues like abortion, are matters of the heart and soul, and it is hard to imagine how someone could change their mind so completely this late in life.

I hope there is a true conservative alternative to Romney in 2012. I was for Fred Thompson in 2008, but conservatives divided the vote between too many candidates for a true conservative to win. We don’t want that to happen again.

You are right. Sarah Palin is leading in most polls about who Republicans would prefer. This analyst seemed to be looking at Romney’s money, organization, and the history of Republicans giving it to a second-time candidate.

But Sarah Palin could fit the “second-time” bill from the standpoint that she was the VP candidate of the party and if she runs for President, could make the case that it is “her turn.”

Romney is a flip flopping liar or another way of stating it, he is a two-faced, two-bit, lying political whore.

But he still brags about his crowning achievement. The anti-liberty, un-American, socialist RomneyCare system he created and rammed through in Massachusetts.

He’s a statist. I’ll never support that bastard.

And if he gets anywhere close to the nomination, FR will go full time into active anti-statist, anti-Romney mode.

We will be actively campaigning hard against him!!

FUMR!!

Palin 2012...but should God have other plans for her, IT IS *ANYONE-BUT-ROMNEY* 2012. And if she isn't a candidate, I am sure Palin will use her influence to make sure of that and put all her energies getting behind a NON-Romney.

Romney - Backstabber of Sen. Thompson.

Novak: "Fred Thompson drop-out rumors traced to Romney campaign"

Said Novak: "The rumors were traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign,
trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson
."

"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

That is totally true. I helped some with a blog for Fred Thompson, and it was almost a daily thing for the Romney people to put out rumors and attacks on Fred Thompson. Conservatives unfortunately divided their vote between Fred, Romney, and Huckabee which allowed McCain to get the nomination. We need someone who can pull the conservative vote together and make sure we have a true, strong conservative to oppose Obama.

Sarah Palin could make a good VP but they would have to give her more power over the Senate. The Senate is out of control and many of them are nothing more than common criminals using the Senate to hide from the law.
I'm still waiting for someone to bring into question, just how legal are those that sit in our government today.
The Constitution calls for the removal of the corruption in our government and if they don't call for their removal than they must step down as well. They take an oath of office and not one is upholding their oath. So if they don't abide by the constitution than they can't remain in office.
Listen to Beck as usual and he has pointed out were the RAT party calls themselves progressives. Obozo didn't mention the Demorat party but he only mentions two parties the progressive and the Republicans. They can't call themselves communist because that word is to well recognized as evil so they are they Progressives. I must say it went over my head for the longest time.
What we need are People Like Glen Beck in the Senate and in the Oval office.
Obozo calls for a freeze on spending but not on his spending. We need to flood the Senators with calls and e mails calling for the freeze on all money going to Czars,Acorn, and the SEIU.
The only way to stop these thugs, bring them down one by one, start convicting them and putting them in jail were they belong. We need to pull the foundation right out from under them, brick by brick, starting with Barney Frank, CHILD PROSTITUTION and go after each and everyone of them that are involved in the meltdown of this country.
I would like for someone to bring Bob Rubin in for investigation and his secret deals with the IMF, I think Rubin really got the ball rolling, the Clintons wanted to bankrupt the country but couldn't because of a Republican congress.
How long do we have to wait before the American people will say ENOUGH, time for IMPEACHMENT of Obozo and his administration. I honestly believe what is going on is and ACT OF TREASON but since the time of the Clintons nobody knows what legal or illegal, nobody knows the meaning of TREASON, everything is determined by what IS, IS.

If McCain would have done the honorable thing and dropped out of the Presidential race Romney would be President I thing. McCain hurt all the candidates, I honestly believe McCain din’t expect Palin to take the country by storm. The harder she tried the more McCain backed off. McCain was in bed with the DEVIL, the Progressives, he stay in the race for the sole purpose of getting obozo elected. I honestly believe that. To this day the McCains do not defend her, they should have been on every talk show defending Palin but they seem to snub their noses instead.

Nothing has changed.

If Palin runs, she WILL win.

If Palin decides not to run, then I have no candidate.

I have NEVER been a ‘sit it out’ voter, but I refuse to support any candidate that’s been hand picked for us by the traitor media. They are doing their best to saddle us with Romney or Huckabee... I will vote for neither.

A second term with Obama is a nightmare that will bring our country to it’s knees, that is, if he isn’t successful at accomplishing that goal prior to 2012.

Palin remains our best bet, period. Unfortunately, she hasn’t convinced me that she is truly going to run. If she doesn’t, then thank God for the Second Amendment and may God help us all.

Palin 2012, nothing else will do.

It will take a real hero to stand up to the Progressives, the RAT party.

Problem is that Romney is a proven bad governor.
Why would you like him?

While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

I totally agree .. Romney would be good at either Treasury or Commerce.

We must remember that a department head has to take his cues from the President. If the President is whimpy then the secretaries will be the same.

It will be most important to elect a President who is not afraid to call corruption what it is .. expose it .. and get those people out of office or out of control of the people’s money. Tough job .. media will abuse .. they must have a steel spine instead of wanting to be liked.

I’ve heard talk of a Romney-Palin ticket. That would make sense. She would already have a foot in the door in 2020 at the age of 56.

While checking on her age, I discovered her 46th birthday is coming up on February 11th.

Huckabee so wants to run in 2012. He is concerned if he can raise enough money to compete.

If the GOP Beltway starts to line up behind Romney, Huckabee may decide its his Godly duty to stop Romney and run as the “regular folks” candidate.

Huckabee does not like Romney. Back in 2008, when McCain considered Romney as Veep, Huckabee rallied evangelicals to say no to Romney. Also, whenever Huckabee talks about ObamaCare on Fox News, he frequently makes pot shots about RomneyCare.

And .. to add to your statements .. I’ve noticed that ever since Palin has been on FOX .. the approval ratings for her have jumped.

Now that Palin has NAME RECOGNITION - I think people were curious to see what she had to say - and her decision to go on FOX was BRILLIANT!! She has defeated Huckabee without firing a shot. And .. I was convinced Huckabee went on TV just to gain name recognition for a 2012 run.

Hmmmm ..?? Looks like the moderates have been proven WRONG AGAIN ..??

She has alot of time for on on political career, but would risk going into obscurity if she lost to Obama again.

Does she personally need a political career? Unlike Romney who planned on being President in playgroup, I doubt if the thought even crossed Sarah's mind until 17 months ago.

Now that some people have suggested, and others have suggested not, that she could do the job, she's probably thinking "Challenge Accepted!"

Bit if she doesn't get it, she goes back to that lakeside cottage, does a little hunting and fishing, and watches the royalty checks on her second book come in. (It's a hard life, but I'm sure she could be happy at it)

Do Not Allow ANY Media To Choose Our Candidates! We The People Will Choose Our Candidates!

The Media chose McCain in 2008 when Republicans might have chosen Mitt Romney. Romney is helping Republicans raise money which is good. But he's not a Conservative.

If Sarah Palin doesn't wish to run in 2012, Michele Bachmann has proved herself to be a good friend of the Tea Party and Conservatives and Constitutionalists. Michele Bachmann should be given consideration.

Pay her bills? Do to the family fishing business( couple of boats and crew ) they were, just barely, worth a million. She probably made five off her book.

Now this isn’t some salt of the earth type like McPain( 11 homes ) or Mitt ( home boy of Utah, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, California..)

For her, she’s well off. She has made the money SHE needs.
