(Vanity) GOP-e Blames Romney’s Troubles on Newt’s Ego
March 15, 2012 | Vanity

Posted on 03/15/2012 3:24:06 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

The GOP-e is starting to blame the GOP Primary and Newt Gingrich for what they see as a weakened Romney going into the General Election.

BLAME Romney!

BLAME the GOP Establishment!

Newt Gingrich is the only conservative still running in the GOP primary!

By employing a drumbeat of damaging headlines, using misleading delegate counts and by calling for him to leave, the GOP-e and their friends in the MSM have hurt Newt but they have not succeeded in knocking him out or silencing the base.

Backstabber ROmney SHOULD pull out, but will not.

Like before the goal of Team Romney is for Obama to win.

FLASHBACK:

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.

Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Mitt Romney was hand-picked by the GOP-e and he doesn’t fit the description of what a majority of the Republican Party want in their standard bearer.

Now an angry GOP-e is red-faced, telling conservatives to stuff it and get out of their way — that the decision has been made and they don’t want the “extreme” base screwing things up for their nominee.

The GOP-e (and the Left) WANT can't win Newt to stay in the race so Santorum can't win either—this is a clever way for the RINOs to get conservatives to vote for Newt—by attacking him.

If only Ross Perot had run for president—we would have never had Clinton/s

Mitt has the organization, the money, the K Street to Wall Street backing, the media, the bought and paid for party endorsements at his disposal, yet he consistently fails to win over more than a third of the votes.

Blame the GOP-e for this. They have repeatedly shoved a moderate on the party.

We’ll take this to the convention in Tampa and have it out this time.

Romney is the hand-picked candidate of the Republican elitists. Why?

Bush invoked the new world order at several critical junctures. On September 9, 1991, he told Gorbachev in Helsinki that each crisis is “an opportunity to develop out of this tragedy a new world order”.

Two days later, Bush added: “Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective - a new world order - can emerge...We are now in sight of a United Nations that performs as envisioned by its founders.”

Can anyone believe this crapola?

On October 1, 1990, President Bush told the General Assembly of the United Nations: “The United Nations can help bring about a new day...a new world order, and a long era of peace.”

Thses crackpots have a vison of themselves as saviors of the world, brining world peace. They are globalists. They are bringing nothing of the sort to the world.

All they are interested in is money and power. That is why they are promoting Romney. The common man, or woman, on the street is just a “unit” to be taxed or obliterated, it matters not to them.

The last thing they want is for conservatives with Bibles and guns asserting their God-given rights and demanding that Washington, D.C., changes how it does business.

Just wondering here-—why don’t Santorum and Gingrich start pounding every single day for ROMNEY to get out of the race? He’s spent , what, like a hundred million dollars so far and still can’t get better than second or third in half the primaries? He has non-stop adoration from all the GOPe. Obviously, it’s way past time for him to cut his supporters’ losses and get out. Then Gingrich and Santorum could have a true 2 man CONSERVATIVE contest, and let the best conservative win.

I’m beginning to think that the “American experiment” has failed, and there is no way backe except through collapse and revolution.

My heart breaks for our once great nation. I weep for the soldiers who died for her, alas in vain, for we have fallen so low.

The end really is near.

The fact that one half of one party is finally getting it is evidence that all is not lost. 20 years ago,Mutt would already be the only candidate left.

Romney was weak from the beginning and never got better.

Romney sucks because he is not a Conservative and these RINO a-holes refuse to listen to their party base.

They want to call themselves Moderates, but they are liberals and Democrats in disguise.

Interesting that Romnuts was heard saying that “Conservatives” will have to vote for him eventually yesterday.

Wait, is he admitting that he is not one himself? What happened to his claim that HE is a Conservative?

Guess he thinks he has this nomination in the bag and no need to cater to those stupid right wingers anymore.

Natural Born Citizenship is NOT defined in the Constitution. While the Framers may have meant that consistent with the then understanding of international law that a person must be born to US citizens for such an individual to be considered a natural born citizen, that understanding is no longer valid following the election of Obama and the courts refusal to hear and interpret that provision of the constitution. The Courts have left that issue to be decided by the political branches of government. In constitutional law, this is known as the “Political Question Doctrine” (Go check it out). In short, the House gets to ratify the electoral vote and the candidate’s eligibility. The election of Obama set a constitutional precedent. He is running for re-election. This is now a straw man issue and bringing this kind of stuff is worthless and its the kind of material you’d find on Moveon.org and Huffington Post websites. Yes, huff, puff, and move on.

No, Obama’s election is fraud, pure and simple. There is no precedent, there wasn’t with Chester A. Arthur over a hundred years ago, and there isn’t one now.

Furthermore, Obama was born in Kenya and is still a citizen of Indonesia when he was adopted as a child. He never naturalized as a U.S. citizen; Janet Napolitano possesses his immigration file. That big-mouthed governor of New Mexico, Bill Richardson, gave away that secret in a Spanish language speech.

I have a good idea why the courts and government are behaving the way they have, and it has to do with national security. It trumps everything.

There is no reason for definition of natural born citizen in the Constitution. There are many expressions therein without definitions, and lawyers know, like I know, what the definitions mean, or they would if properly educated.

I learned in civics class in grade school about natural born citizenship. And the definition was given by the SCOTUS in a holding in 1874.

MINOR v. HAPPERSETT (1874)

…the only time the US Supreme Court ever did define the class of persons who were POTUS eligible under Article 2 Section 1 was in Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), wherein it was held:

“The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.” Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162, 168.

There’s a quote for you. It really exists. And it tells you exactly who are natural-born citizens; those born in the country of parents who are citizens. The words are plain-spoken and self-evident. There are two classes of persons discussed in the above quotation. Those born in the country of citizen parents were labeled by the Court as “natives or natural-born citizens”, but these were also further identified as being “distinguished from aliens or foreigners”. The distinction is crucial.

So, have you started using the Constitution for toilet paper, as well?

If you continue to have problems with this subject, let me know. I’ll call up my reserves. We’ve all been working on this issue since, at least for me, March of 2008.

If this is true, then BO never met the Constitutional requirement to become a United States senator (must be a U.S citizen) either.

First go read up on the doctrine of Political Question. For example, the Constitution requires that Congress declare war when we fight one. Neither the Vietnam nor Korean wars were “wars” declared by Congress. These issues were sought to be litigated in the Courts and were turned down. Because using the political question doctrine, the Courts ruled these were for the other political branches of government to resolve NOT the judiciary. So regardless of what or how the Framers viewed the meaning of “natural born citizenship” (And yes, there is support in Vattel’s Law of Nations, to conclude that such a person must be born to parents of US citizens), the Courts have used the PQ doctrine to have this matter resolved by Congress. This is left to the Electoral College. Precedent is very important and persuasive in legal interpretation. The Obama precedent now settles this issue. So try stop beating a dead horse.

How would I know what the Electoral College would do? I would guess NOT unless the majority of members in Congress are bat crazy and the voters who elect them are certifiably insane. Simply because one could point to a “parade of horribles” that could happen under our constitution doesn’t mean it will.

Why did Congress recently try and pass 8 bills changing the definition of NBC?

You don’t change something or hide from something that is not in force.???

Do you agree?

..... So the child of two illegal aliens or a foundling of unknown parentage is eligible to be President of the US????(they are both currently citizens at birth)

According to your theory that is correct, do you stand by that?

Because its politically expedient???

IF not why then, I guess you are saying its a Political Question,? So that can change from one election to the next? What happened to the Constitution, is it then subject to Politics? Which parts are subject to politics and which are not?
