Is Romney sitting on political gold?
Right Handed Pitcher ^ | 4/22/2010 | Timothy Knight

Posted on 04/22/2010 9:07:33 AM PDT by reaganwasright1980

Mitt Romney, the former Republican Governor of Massachusetts is a smart businessman who is known for turning around the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic games, but I'm not sure the former Governor is aware of his current political situation. I know you all might not like him for his RINO-ishness, but listen to this.

A situation of sitting on pure political gold.

Synopsis of the article:

Mitt Romney is just like Calvin Coolidge, or something, and that means win win win.

Yeah, what’s the gold? I’m not clicking a blog to find out. And trying very hard to ignore the golden underwear joke.

Mitt needs to cut off his ‘RINO’ horn and run as a ‘Blue Dog’ ‘DeamonRAT’, once he does that his honesty would be so refreshing that he just might then have a shot at the Presidency

Romney has the mind of a technocrat who thinks he’s smart enough to fix everyone’s life if we’ll just give him a chance. Any appreciation for federalism is simply his dog-ate-my-homework coverup for having flipped on too many issues to dare flip on his healthcare disaster.

I am not sure but I don’t remember gold being brown and emiting a strong distasteful odor. ;-)

I’m beginning to hear the same media bias in favor of Romney that I heard in favor of McCain in 2008. The Republicans need to resist allowing the media to choose their nominees.

Romney should hire some ‘bots that can write without sentence fragments and gibberish. It seems unfair to mock the author of that piece. I think he’s in the fourth grade.

Exactly! The same folks who regularly flunk Hannity's Man in the Street question, "Who is the VP?" are suddenly going to snap to and say, "Calvin Coolidge! Well why didn't you say that in the first place, Mitt." And here I thought the 4/20 celebration was over for a few days. Guess not.

Carville(D): "It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy
."

RomneyCARE-creator, backstabbing, carpetbagging, vote-buying, fake-badge using Mitt Romney:
” I will be the GOP nominee, wisely supported by TIME magazine, Eleanor Clift and even James Carville.
One more thing you lousy FReepers and conservatives,
now that my Romneycare is national, ready to hurt
three hundred million, a little self examination is in order for you.
You may want to ask yourself “if I had spent my time promoting
RomneyCare and Mitt Romney, could not I have garnered more support
of both Mr. Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney?“


“Romney praises Obama again
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney praised President Obama
at a GOP fundraising dinner Wednesday ..
"I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."

Your support would matter little. By the time they played the commercials of Romney’s liberal views, he would be toast among enough of the electorate to kill any chance of election. Worse, he would destroy any gains we make in 2010 in the House and Senate.

Correct. Hoover was also a fine person and genuinely decent. He had a great record of accomplishment as a businessman and humanitarian, but he wasn't the right man to be president. He was also unable to figure out when the statists rolled him to serve their own ends.

That's an unfortunate quality which Mitt has in common not only with Hoover but with John McCain.

Using a massive taxpayer bailout.

And he recently admitted that RomneyCare worked only because the feds footed half the bill (that means taxpayers from the other 49 states).

Mitt was a terrible Gov, I worked for him, the alternative was worse. He gave it a try for the first two years and gave up, pulled a Juan McCain.

He then tries to out rat the rats, failed and left Muffey Healy holding the bag, her main qualification was Breasts. He then left the State for greener pastures.

A vote for Romney in the primary, could very well be a vote for another 4 years of Obama and a bloody civil war.

Romney, the liberal press likes him. ALL the Washington insiders like him. Heck, I’m sure Obama LOVES him. Sounds like the criteria the Republican party has been using to pick candidates since Bush Sr.
