Skip to comments.Now Newsweek Is Calling Romney A Wimp. Projection Much?
Posted on 07/30/2012 9:31:35 AM PDT by The Looking Spoon
I can't think of any other liberal rag so desperate for attention (and getting it) than Newsweek...now they're calling Mitt Romney a wimp...really? Why on earth did they want to go there?
I don't even have to manufacture a concept like I did here and here...I just have to insert real pictures, and it's a more realistic cover than anything the left can throw at Romney.
And, of course:
Was this before or after he was a bully?
So is this just subtle racism? Is Newsweak actually considering Obie as being a strong, intimidating black man and Romney his weak, cowering white opponent?
so Newspeak that bastion of great journalism that just announced it will be folding it’s print addition, had to do something, in desperation, to get one last little boost of ad revenue
It could have read “Newsweek” are we just too insecure to be a real news magazine”; even though their finances have already answered that question with a resounding “yes”.
The other side has really stepped in it YET AGAIN! Imagine calling Romney a wimp with the simpering pantload they have in their corner. And this wimp thing piggybacking off an earlier rendition re: George W. Bush - who was a combat pilot! Let the examples of Barry Soetoro’s limp wristed manhood begin...
No one reads Newsweek. The magazine was sold recently for $1! Its a worthless rag. People wouldn’t even know about their biased and stupid cover if it weren’t for sites like this talking about it.
He was a bully who needed a gang to hold down an effeminate kid and cut his hair, the wimp form of bully, kind of like a girl bully.
You misspelled Newsweak.
Why don't at least try making up a new lie?
Or are you only capable of parroting other peoples' lies?
Don’t lie to these people, the girlie gang attack by Mitt was never discredited.
Your personalizing attacks only reveals your own character, even Mitt did not deny it, he mumbled that he couldn’t remember it and moved on, several others verified it.
It would make sense that Mitt would not remember something that never happened.
You are a gossip monger. Nothing more. All you have is gossip. Not one shred of actual evidence.
You must be so proud to be an old woman gossip.
LOL, you are making things up.
Witnesses saw it, and Mitt refused to deny doing it.
The sister just didn’t know about the incident, as she says and the family just doesn’t like the way the victim is portrayed.
“Christine Lauber, who is a few years older than John Lauber, was at college when the alleged incident happened, and said the brother and sister were doing our own thing at the time.
When ABC News showed her the story, Christine Laubers eyes welled up with tears and she became agitated.
She described her brother as a very unusual person.
He didnt care about running with the peer group, Christine Lauber said. Whats wrong with that?
Betsy Lauber, one of John Laubers three sisters, spoke with ABC News Tuesday night regarding the accuracy of the story.
The family of John Lauber is releasing a statement saying the portrayal of John is factually incorrect and we are aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda. There will be no more comments from the family, she said.
She did not say specifically how the Washington Post story was incorrect.
Romney has since apologized for what he said were pranks in high school but has said he doesnt remember the specific event.”
A gossip. That’s all you got. That’s all you are.
When everything else has failed...I can see a landslide in November from my window.
It isn’t gossip, it is something shameful that Romney did when he outnumbered an effeminate classmate.
Where's your proof?
Besides gossip, I mean.
You old washer-woman you.
The proof is the witnesses, one witness was Mitt Romney who could not deny it knowing that the other witnesses existed.
“Romney has since apologized for what he said were pranks in high school but has said he doesnt remember the specific event.”
If he didn’t do it, he would be outraged and deny it without reservation.
How wimpy is the guy who mocked anti-war students and protested THEM yet evaded the draft himself saying that he had no intention of serving, I was not planning on signing up for the military.It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam”?
Here is why Mitt was incapable of taking on that boy by himself.
“Despite the school’s rarefied air, it was still a high school, so the jocks tended to be the most popular. Mitt’s singular distinction as an athlete was an embarrassing one, classmates recall. He competed in a 2.5-mile race held during a football game, setting off with the rest of the runners at the start of halftime.
Everyone returned before the second half of the football game began, except Mitt. He didn’t resurface until about 10 minutes after the last runner. He staggered around the oval for the final lap, collapsing twice in the last 15 yards but drawing cheers from the crowd when he finally crossed the finish line. “It had to be one of those moments that made you feel good, but inadequate,” Bailey says. “But those kinds of things didn’t bother him.”
Shame your not interested in the actual documented treasonous acts of Ubama and would rather spend your time in mental masturbation about gossip about Rodney.
Masculine Body Language
Your defense of Mitt is not exactly the best I have seen.
You're doing him more good than harm.
Keep it up!
It is a story that Mitt Romney pretty much confessed to and apologized for, you know the draft evading Romney, the prowar/antiwar hypocrite.
That's about as gay as it gets.
You should talk to your doctor about getting some testosterone supplements. Otherwise you are just going to keep humiliating yourself.
You don’t appear to have anything grown up to say.
This childish personal stuff is very fitting from someone supporting Romney, in his years of running no one has ever been able to effectively defend him.
Gossip. Only old women think gossip is fact.
The event was witnessed and the leader who organized the attack has already apologized for it in his best Bill Clinton manner.
By the way, I notice you don’t have any real defenses of Mitt and his wimpishness which is the thread subject, if you remember, this bullying incident was brought up as a defense that he was not a wimp.
The only wimp I see around here is the shameless gossip with the vestigial testicles.
I just have to assume that there is something wrong with you that makes you speak as you do in post after post.
She you be on the phone with the girls spreading more gossip?
The bigger point is the progressive liberal media went all out with the bully story on just about every type of media outlet. They declared him a bully amidst the family denials. The internet bastions of the left posted about it for weeks. Now the narrative is completely polar opposite; that he is a wimp. The truth is a foreign object to the media and this is par for the course. The problem is that we all tend to underestimate the media power as it still exists in determining the narrative of a campaign. They will keep trying until something “seems” to stick. Whether any part of whatever narrative is true, the duplicity and the hypocrisy here is stunning. Bob Shieffer was so elated at this new “narrative” that he could hardly contain his obvious glee on Face the Nation. So set aside the fiction of it all and understand the media motive.
See post 21, there has been no denials by anyone, Romney even gave a Bill Clinton style admission and apology.
Regardless, the point is that he is both. Bully or wimp. Diametrically opposing narratives. The former lost its legs. The latter will ride for now. They must feel the Dukakis tank picture, much like the Howard Dean effeminate scream are more effective in disabling a candidate hence I doubt we will read any further stories with the bully aspect. Bush was a cowboy as was Reagan. Elder Bush was a combat veteran pilot that was shot down. Kerry couldn’t overcome his wimp factor no matter how many medals he got on lies. Making Romney out to be a bully only helped him and perhaps that is why the clintonesque non denial denial and non apology apology. Many like stronger leaders. The media has now switched gears. Time will tell if they all sync up on the wimp narrative.
They are the same, Mitt is a wimp, next to Obama Mitt is the biggest wimp to ever be in the running.
Mitt’s bully attack was not one of a tough guy, or even a fight of any type.
In Mitt’s attack, he formed a group to hold down an already effeminate guy, and THEN Romney cut off his hair, it was many against one, the action of a cowardly wimp.
snicker. I don’t think it happened but it doesn’t matter. It is kind of funny how gnarled up you get over forgotten lore decades ago. I am not cheer-leading for or against so it’s no skin off me either way. Carry on.
Since Romney already gave a Clintonian admission and apology for it we know that the witnesses were telling the truth.
Some things show a true lack of character, the worst, and this attack did that for Mitt, it fits in with everything that we know about him.
This fits in with his refusal to serve in the military and his admission that he had no intention of doing so, yet him publicly mocking and demonstrating against the others who shared his same feelings and fears as Mitt played to the crowd and authorities as the BMOC.
Over and over we see this wimp factor, his leaving the GOP because of Reagan, his pathological lying about everything, his quietly becoming a democrat supporter and fund raiser, his doing the worst things and then lying about them like when the check and the photo proved that he was lying about his fund raising for Planned Parenthood, or that he wasn’t really a gun-owner, or that he and his father never marched with MLK as he claimed, or that he was a mere student when God told his church to accept blacks when in reality Mitt was a 30 something businessman, it just goes on and on.
There is nothing manly about the wimp.
Not to get into cheer-leading for or against, but it is clear the GOP old guard Republican’s still rule the party. I have to give it to the Rove’s of the world and the Rockefeller Republican wing. They are good at destroying the conservatives that run and ran. I quit thinking there was much of a difference in the parties long ago anyway. What bothers me more is that the media is still in control. There is a list of narratives they wrote about many of the good candidates over the years. Palin=stupid and unqualified. Bachmann=crazy. Cain-uncle tom sex abuser. Gingrich=unstable and temperamental. Thompson=cancer ridden and no fire in the belly. The list goes on and on. On the other side you get the media driven narratives that Clinton=strong woman. Obama=intelligent and hopeful. The list goes on and on and on. With Mitt, well they laid low on him while they systematically took out his opponents one narrative at a time. It’s Mitt’s turn. They were only his friend so a real conservative couldn’t win. McCain basically the same.
But not to belabor the point, their work ( the media ) has been accomplished in California and it looks like the tide will never turn there. Not one republican, and certainly no conservative won a single state wide race. They are amping up the war against conservatives one special interest group at time and make no mistake that the flood of illegals, the war against voter ID, and the war against women, gays and minorities is all measured as the white population becomes smaller as a percentage. Manufactured outrage and guilt. The dumbing down of the masses. Public school indoctrination.
Mitt Obama? Take your pick. Not much difference. I do think Obama has far more nefarious goals in mind. Slow death of a thousand cuts or a quick death. My biggest concern is the economy to be honest. My business and my family’s welfare are paramount to anything. I do wonder what kind of country my children are going to be living in 10, 20, 50 years from now. I know it won’t be the country I knew.
