Mark Levin rails against Romney camp for avoiding Rev. Wright issue
Daily Caller ^ | 05/18/2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 05/19/2012 12:47:04 PM PDT by Mozilla

Yesterday it was reported by Guy Benson at Townhall.com that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee, did something he was reluctant to do during his primary fight: He “repudiated” the efforts of a political action committee to attack one of his opponents.

On his Thursday radio show, Levin suggested highlighting Rev. Wright was being “repudiated” because it would be interpreted as racist.

“In the next six months, this campaign, or however long it goes — listen to me, but don’t listen to me,” Levin said. “Don’t bring up Rev. Wright, because the Obama campaign says if you bring up says if you bring that up. It’s racist. Don’t bring up Rev. Wright.”

But that, according to Levin, would be a mistake because it would give insight into Obama’s character. But it is also inconsistent with Romney’s efforts in the past, Levin said.

“Why would you take any issue off the table, particularly issues that give us a look into this man’s character?” Levin said. “And Rev. Wright helps us do that, among other things. I mean, I can’t believe — this would be the same Mitt Romney who spent tens of millions of dollars trashing his opponents in the Republican primary,

We have to vet the president! But this is what we get when we nominated rinos. No spine to take on the other side.

The press is trying so hard to bait Romney on Wright.

As many have already said, Romney is afraid the media will retaliate with a deep look at Mormonism. Well, you know what, Willard, they’re going to do that anyway, your white flag notwithstanding.

Someone needs to educate the American public on Critical Race Theory and liberation theology, why the Democratic Party consists of special interest radicals who hate traditional America and Americans, especially white Americans. We here at FR do our part, but eventually Republicans need to grow some balls. Right now would be a good time to do it.

If Herr Zero is defeated by some miracle, if won’t be any of Mitten’s doing.

Romney has several notches of intestinal fortitude to go before he reaches “milquetoast.”

America will learn about Romney and polyamory
and Romney’s belief that he is a coming diety
along with Romney’s ineligibility ... in October.

Until then, Milt HAS to protect Obama, as he
has in 2007, and in 2008, and in 2009, and in 2010.

Romney has only one target: Any conservative in his way.

If he runs a McCain campaign, you KNOW they want Obama back in. What would be the motive? Only one that I can think of.

The blowout from the economic collapse.

I don’t know how much of a winner this issue is in the general election but I do know that Romney said it WAS relevant in January using it to win primary Republican voters and now having won the primary he says it’s NOT relevant and should not be discussed.

Typical Romney bait and switch.

Talk to the “hold your nose and vote” crowd, not me.

I flatly refuse to vote for him and then whine later as I watch myself slip farther and farther into Marxism due to his timid efforts and RINO ways.

He was the hand picked boy for the GOP back in 09 and is their boy today. Nothing has changed.

Yup, sounds like Romney worries more about trashing Rev. Wright and Obama than he does about trashing his fellow Republicans. Why am I not surprised?

Everyone who is expecting anything from Willard had better get used to a long, long, looooooooong string of disappointments. “Unexpected”, as the press would say.

This is the time to have taken down the GOPE, because this is the time that counts.

I am unafraid of Obama 2.0, if that is what it takes to explode the socialist GOPE, take back our party and defend the Republic. That’s a small price to pay for restoring our nation, taking back our schools and defending the Constitution.

No Romney, No Way, No How. Not ever.

Exactly. Rev. Wright is not going to win us the White House come November; Obama's cruddy economy is. Because Romney is staying focused and not taking the bait doesn't mean he has no spine. Stay focused my FRiends! You don't have to love Romney, but remember who the enemy is.

So, when will you be joining the Obama campaign?

There is no longer even one primary candidate, opposing Romney. Pick a lane.

Listen to your elders, Mitt....Mark has been around for a long, long time and has been right all that time. Any man who wrote 'Ameritopia' and 'Liberty and Tyranny' is providing you with free, inestimable advice worth heeding and following. Roll up your sleeves now, and get in there....we cannot afford four more years of those last four years.....

My dad told me (and i suspect plenty of other dads have told their kids) early on. 'son, you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer BUT there are 2 ways you can keep that from causing you to become a complete failure in life. One is by seeking out and humbly asking for help and opinion from the really, really smart guys. And the second is by, following their advice and working like a donkey as you do'

There you have it Mitt, hire Mark as your lead campaign strategist......yer gonna need HIM....and all like him. Psssst while you're at it, also hire these other two stone geniuses, the second one as your VP.

You do what Annie and Sarah and Mark and I tell you to do and you're number 45!

I will be going with our original strategy, voting
“delegates only” in my state primary, going with whomever has the most against Romney.

The delegates are the only grassroots left standing to oppose Romney at the convention. The conservatives took a dive, so it may be Santorum or Paul, but Romney deserves a push away from his self proclaimed Progressive views and going along to get along only deepens them in the GOPE.

In the general, I’m going back to the brain of the bunch, Newt.

No Romney, No Way, No How, EVER. Not here. I’m conservative after all and that’s the only way I vote, EVER.

I’ve changed my mind, based on the clarity of your message.

Do please remember to vote in December.

I don’t like mittens, but it is what it is.

If the new media wants to vet Obozo fine.

Obama wants to talk about anything but the economy. If Romney talks Rev Wright he isn’t talking about jobs, obamacare & the deficit. This isn’t good. Talking about Wright motivates Obama’s base and let’s the rats play the race card.

I want Obama’s ideas to be defeated not just Obama.

Levin is wrong on this one. Dems want to play in the gutter it is their home. Don’t play on goound of the enemies chosing.

Little late for Mitt to be learning basic life essentials, and developing a true set of values, don't you think?

I'm afraid that at this point, you're gonna get what you get.

Well Winf,
If we get both houses well have a lot of power and even if we don't get both....We can always send Annie over to the Oval Office to pay the Mitt man a visit, when need be, to whup him into shape. Ann'll make sure he sees the light and leads from the right side of the force....If she wants to, Annie can take COL. West with her....Mitt's no match for a combat Marine Veteran, that's for sure. But to tell ya the truth, I'd rather face Alan than ANNIE any day/.....hahahahah.... Also i believe in Redemption...wherever I can find it...and I believe Mitt can be redeemed.....especially with Ann Coulter on the other end of the stick....Bwhahahhaha

Please tell me that was satire. Surely you must have meant Ann Barnhardt. Ann Coulter sold her soul to the political dark side some time ago. She even jumped a shark to make the deal.

"Ann Coulter sold her soul to the political dark side some time ago. She even jumped a shark to make the deal"

It's a story that's been playing out for at least a couple of years, Jim. I'm surprised you're just now hearing about it.

She's not so important to me that I can recall every detail of her fall from grace, but a couple of low points are:

A) Her decision to become the spokeswoman for the national organization of GOProud (gay Republican group).
B) Her early and continued support for Governor Chris Christie, even when it had become clear to most conservatives that he was little more than a moderate, small R republican, without a conservative core.
C) Her on-air, vicious trashing of Sarah Palin with her gal pal, Laura Ingraham.
D) Her endorsement of Mitt Romney midway through the 2012 primary - this, when two conservatives were still in the race.

Search her name on FR and see what you find. You've got to go back some years to find threads in which most posters express real affinity and respect for her. Her stock has dropped like a stone around these parts.

Levin loves to rail... but I think Romney is taking the right path on this.

His Pac (which he can’t control) can get the dirt out on Wright, leaving Romney with clean hands ...

Romney can use his refutation of the Wright stuff against Obama if Obama tries to bring up Mormonism (which he probably will)

I didn’t realize that being a Mormon would be a problem until I saw a lot of Mormon hatred on this forum.

Nobody knows what a person really believes. We only know what he does and how he acts.

Romney seems like a good guy and a good family man.

Moreover, he’s not Obama.

I’m for Romney.
