On Hannity's show "Hannity's America," last night I could swear that near the end of his show he asked those on the invited panel "Is this Reagan versus Carter?"
Did anyone watch his show last night and hear this, as he said this pretty fast?
As if Romney is Reagan.
Obama is Carter, but Romney is no Reagan. Romney is a Rinocrat.
Perhaps if you weren’t such an ass, you’d have known I was not talking about you - I was referring to the subject of the thread. Sorry your hatred got in the way of your reading comprehension. Please note that other posters knew EXACTLY who I was referring to.
I agree. Obama hates America whereas Mitt couldn't care less about America. It's not the same thing, but the results are.
Oh yes, I’m sure they all know. /s
Read post 38 and, if possible, learn.
I was actually agreeing with your point, and demonstrating how a certain host would not see the vast differences between Reagan and Romney. But don’t worry, I’ll never build on your point again. Which won’t be hard, so few being worthy to begin with.
Okay. I’ll apologize for jumping to conclusions if you’ll admit that you could have been clearer, especially in this political environment.
The question could be interpreted in such a way as to absurd by noting the Romney is no Reagan, being at best an American analogue of a British “Wet” Tory, though surely worse on social issues, and possibly better on some aspects of economic issues.
Of course, it might also be interpreted in a way which is not absurd by noting that Obama is no Carter, but rather an actively anti-American, post-colonialist, multiculturalist Red-diaper baby (albeit with elements of Carter-style incompetence), and so far left that although Romney too far left for the comfort of FReepers, he is enough to the right of Obama that the analogy works.
I think there are alot of similarities. You have a dem running for re-election in a stagnate/bad economy who has made it clear he’s going to go super negative to win re-election. A really good book about the 1980 election is Craig Shirley’s book Rendevous With Destiny.
The interesting thing about Romney is that Mormons think he is the fulfillment of a Mormon prophesy about a Mormon becoming President and saving the Constitution. If Romney thinks he is that man he is suppose to concentrate on saving the Constitution, which seems quite different than the direction he has been heading.
Fair enough. Not my most coherent post. My bad for that.
Not my best moment either. I apologize for my stupid kneejerk post.
The Romney Republican’s natural constituency.
More like Carter vs. Carter. Or Carter on Steroids vs. Carter on Meth.
