Skip to comments.What Democrats REALLY think of Mitt Romney (The Joke's on Us)
Posted on 03/23/2012 9:13:16 AM PDT by publius321
I just stumbled upon an accurate column on the Democrats ACTUAL view upon a Romney nomination titled Democrats Have No Fear Of Romney (linked at blog)
It provides a rare glimpse behind the scenes of the Obama campaigns TRUE view of the prospects of a Mitt Romney nomination. It demonstrates that they understand that Mitt Romney cannot beat Barack Obama and only events- can defeat him if Romney is the nominee. In essence, Romney is- the bag of rocks candidate because he brings absolutely nothing to the election that could legitimately be considered as marketable in the most anti-Wall Street climate in American history. If his Investment banking CEO experience is a plus, then we should have nominated Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein who is expected to retire very soon.
So he totally inoculates Obama from having to answer about Obamacare. Hes a CEO from what is now the most despised industry in America. So what is left? Elect me because I saved the Olympics! The specifics of what Romney did in Utah and how he did it are currently a mystery to most, so when details of that come out it will probably lead to more embarrassment.
This column is a beauty, filled with gems like this:
Several Obama campaign staffers described Chicago as more worried that Romneys nomination might de-energize the base and depress donations because the grassroots think Obama will have reelection in the bag.
Oh! So thats Romneys strategery. Romney is playing possum. He has brilliantly cultivated a decade of economically destructive policies in Massachusetts like his socialist medical plan and Wheels for Welfare and worked diligently to establish a reputation of having no fixed principles just so that Democrats would UNDERESTIMATE him - when he would finally run for President in 2012.
Brilliant! This rascal Romney would seem prescient if it were not for the fact that this strategy has already failed us for the past 24 years since President Reagan left office.
The funny thing is that the attitudes of Democrats seem to contradict the absurd contentions of Romney infatuated shills like Coulter, Morris & Rabinowitz who have been telling us for this entire Winter that Romney is the candidate that Obama fears most. But you dont have to be a sleuth to find the Newsbank collection of tens of thousands of quotes and transcripts of Democrats like David Axelrod publicly hoping for Mitt Romney to be our nominee.
They publicly- hoped for Romney up until about three months ago when the GOP primaries actually began. Once the season began, we witnessed their flip-flopping to the new narrative which we all well know. Romney shills through the Newscorp machine have adeptly read the talking points to the point where they reverberate in our minds without ceasing.

Nobody fears Willard, the vapid dork.
If he’s our nominee, we’re doomed.
The cancer of Obamacare now extends to choosing a Public health expert for the World Bank Presidency.
The major problem with THE NINE SUPREMES is that they are chosen for political reasons by the POTUS, and then they vote as an un-accountable democracy, for a Nation that is NOT a Democracy, but a REPUBLIC.
As a result, THE NINE SUPREMES commonly vote 5 to 4 on most issues. Constitutionality is seldom a consideration, and their up-coming ruling on Obamacare will prove my point.
Now is the time to stand and deliver to address our grievances to the dictates of the Left.
Oppose the dictates of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack!
Our ONLY chance to ABOLISH Obamacare rests with THE NINE SUPREMES, because Romney will be defeated by Obama.
IMHO, if Romney is anointed as the RNC Nominee, THE main issue in the National Election, Obamacare, will be taken off the campaign table. Hence, Romney will not only lose, but suffer another crushing, and sadly typical, RINO defeat.
To those who want poster ideas, here are a few ideas for demonstration posters:
Obamacare was robo-signed by Congress, and is therefore illegal.
Obamacare was 2700 pages long, and is still being written, but not by Congress: witness the forced contraception coverage recently added by HHS Regulators.
Obamacare has caused The Catholic Spring.
Obamacare reduces competition, and therefore is illegal by the 1890 Sherman Anti-Trust Law.
Obamacare is designed to be a US Federal Government monopoly, with no competition.
Obamacare also is illegal according to the US Constitution, because it violates our freedom of choice.
Will THE NINE SUPREMES notice any of these three violations? I seriously doubt it.
Impeached Bill Clinton proved that the US President is above US Federal Law, so anything that the President wants he gets, regardless of the Federal Laws that he has violated.
The Problem as I see it with Romney is that he will be such a mediocre President that even if he does win he will be so middle of the road as to not upset the apple cart that the economy will not bloom and then in 4 years it will assure that the democrats take back power on the whole meme that the economy didnt recover.
Not to mention any GOP president is going to be so damned hated no matter how moderate they are. Mittens will get so damned gun shy that he will be ineffective and the MSM and the Democrat controlled media will smell blood and keep attacking him even as he retreats and this will paralyze him to what needs to be done to restore the economy and defuse all of Obamas horrible regulatory actions.
Newt is going to be hated like hell anyways and HE KNOWS THAT, but he also knows that he will have the people who put him there behind even if the Media doesnt paint it that way every night at 5:00pm.
So therefore, Newt (who thrives on antagonism instead of flinching from it) will take the bold measures to recover the economy despite being thrashed every night on the MSM news channels. In Four years the MSM will be flabbergasted like their were on election night in 1984, because the man on the street will notice the economy improvement.
Mitt is a Flincher, Newt is a Clincher
Definition of a Clincher:
a decisive fact, argument, act, or remark
Definition of a Flincher:
to withdraw or shrink from or as if from pain
We are so SOL if Either Mittens gets in or Barry gets a second term.
Mittens would only slow things down and then in four years the GOP would be blamed so much but with little to show we would still be in an economic malaise the likes of Carters worst dreams. This would GUARANTEE a Democrat Victory over the house the senate and even the presidency in 2016. They would not be pulling any punches as they would run someone that would make Obama look like a middle of the road moderate. Because they know they would have a very good chance of winning. Not to mention the class warfare game that could be played to Bolshevik conclusion during that election if we get Romney and mediocre performance out of him which is very much likely.
Of course Obama winning would be a very much nothing to lose second term that would see him likely either completely destroying the economy so badly that they play the game of Destroy and Support in that they would destroy the economy and then support the people as the great savior thus ensuring either Glorious Revolution or the mass construction project of making millions more so dependent that they will have a permanent grip on power that would only come undone with Blood sweat and tears, but mostly Blood and Tears.
ABO and ABR, because we really need Newt or maybe Santorum if we get desperate, heck I would even take, heaven forbid (I cant believe I am saying this), Ron Paul over Romney for the reasons above.
So I repeat once more: Newt is the Clincher, and Mitt is the Flincher.
Even though this is true Romney can still easily beat Obama. Obama has been a disaster as president.
Rabinowitz as in Dorothy who said in 2008:
It was their first real encounter with McCain. And everything he said made it so clear that any other Republican contender compared to him is pitiable. At every level of questioning, his range, his fearlessness, and I have to say, his anger, you know, you have to have a president who is not simply Mr. Glossy, and who has a moral range. What is wrong with this? And he has it in spades. Now people worry about his views. I I forgive him his views on waterboarding. They are not mine. I forgive him his views on immigration. They are the views of the Wall Street Journal editorial board, but not mine. Now when I say forgive, you know, its joshing, but they are not my views. And who cares? You know, theres a marvelous, and Im sure, Dennis, that you know this saying, the best is the enemy of the good. For whom are they going to hold out? The pitiable, in my view, Mitt Romney. I mean, thats a rhetorical question. I ask you this.
I guess if you're the least conservative candidate in any race you are no longer pitiable.
Thank you for a very thoughtful reply. I spent the morning blast-posting to encourage those who are demonstrating and planning to demonstrate in the next few days. Hope I did some good.
Now that I am back from my office, I will try to respond, as best I can.
You and I are on the same page on Romney. He is the grease that keeps the wheels of Government grinding us taxpayers into pinko-slime.
As you may have noticed, it is rare for Romney to exceed 50 % of the vote in any state Primary election. That tells me that if Romney does not get the other 50 % of his left-wing ideas bloodied he will be a sorrier Nominee than either McCain or Dole were.
In other words, the longer and the bloodier this Primary goes on, the better the chance for Romney to be able to walk a mile in our shoes. He is dumber than a bag of hammers when it comes to empathy. It is truly incredible how dense he is when confronting the reality of Federal overspending, and the massive Bolshevik Revolution that is Obamanation.
I suspect that Romney is not listening to his audiences, and thus will not listen to us if he gets elected POTUS. Since we will expect him to not be Obama-lite, he will be totally stunned to hear us dish out our cheap, verbal abuse to him. I predict a Romney Recall Movement by Republicans after 1.5 years in office.
I have yet to see ONE soundbite, statement, or speech by Romney that indicates that he understands that a Presidential Meataxe will be required of him to Cut BASELINE, Year to Year, Federal spending in the next two years.
What I see is a happy face ready to “stay up until midnight, if necessary” to make sure that everybody gets what they say they want.
Romney is a “pleaser” not a leader. Would you send your sons to follow Romney into the “Gates of Hell?” That is the gut check I use to determine the intangible quality of leadership, and Romney comes up short, REAL short.
Romney would be very good as head of the IRS. He is cleaner than a hound’s tooth, no scandals in his life, and loves to tidy things up. He would also do a fair job as Ambassador to the UN, or to countries such as Germany or Great Britain.
The pundits on TV are mistaken about the voters main goal is to find somebody to “Beat Obama.” What the voters want is somebody who will ABOLISH everything that Obama has done. The voters doubt that Romney will do anything to undo Obamanation. “Peace in our time.”
Romney has said that he will repeal “most” of Obama”care.” Romney is very good at Caving In, his primary RINO trait.
Romney will gradually reduce the rate of increase in Federal Spending, but has no plans to reduce the BASELINE Federal Spending.
Romney will fit right in with the other RINOs in the District of Corruption. For example, today R. Tn. Sen. Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell said that “with a few more Republican Senators we would be able to repeal and replace Obamacare.”
We cannot afford ANY of the politician-designated “entitlements” that have bankrupted the USA over the last 80 years, and McConnell is talking about REPLACING free lunch Obama”care”???????????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sit down sometime and look critically at all the members of Congress who share McConnell’s view of why Government exists. Write down the names who do NOT have those views. Then have a Shiner Bock, maybe two - - - -
