Romney vs Obama
5/24/12 | self

Posted on 05/24/2012 9:02:28 AM PDT by Jerrybob

Did you know that Romney received a dual degree from BOTH Harvard Business School and Harvard Law graduating Cum Laude? Well, it's about time that someone put an article out there describing Mitt Romney and his background. Notice a really clear difference between Romney and Obama? Here are a few:

1. Mitt doesn't have that arrogant, supercilious pose that Obama has

2. His scholastic credits are an open book...grades, friends, etc.

3. He doesn't need a tele-prompter to speak...

4. He does his speaking engagements to adults not high school groupies

5. His past friends are visible, and none are anarchists, radicals, or .....

6. He is a religious man, and attends a church which preaches humanity

7. He has an outstanding and successful background in government and business

8. He can't dance, sing, shoot baskets, or skip up the steps of aircraft

9. He successfully worked with Democrats while Governor

10. He is proud to be an American, and strongly backs Israel

Mitt wouldn't be my first choice either, but compared to the anti-American, whitey-hating, old people-hating thing that now occupies the WH, Mitt looks pretty good.

Romney is a pro-abortion liberal RINO.

Obama is a pro-abortion socialist Marxist.

When it comes down to it, I am going to hold my nose and vote for the liberal RINO over the socialist Marxist, but all of my campaign contributions and volunteer time are going to conservative candidates in local races that may actually make a positive difference.

9. He successfully worked with Democrats while Governor

That's because he IS one. The objective isn't to work with Democrats. The objective is to DEFEAT them.

And if he's not your first choice, perhaps posting your personal top-ten Romney list isn't a great idea?

And ‘that’ is supposed to impress me?

Look at the person himself, who he surrounded himeself with, and what he did.

No sell.

This is the choice:

GOP Socialist and LDS cultist vs. Democrat Socialist and Liberation Theology cultist

There is no lesser of these two Evils.

Gotta say this. People like you and all the others who will jump on here to declare their purity and their vow never to vote for Romney are not as good as you think you are.

In fact, you are downers, annoying, elitists and if all the conservatives I knew were like you, I would become a liberal.

I am not a liberal. I am for every conservative principle you could possible name.

The difference is I’m not a woebegotten nutcase.

If Obama had anything good in his college records, they would be public and MSNBC would be repeating the data 24 x 7.

The facts are he was not a good student and spent his college years smoking dope and snorting coke.

I WAS at your stage of reasoning in 2008. No more.

You’re welcome to feel all mighty condescending, thou.

#1. That would be a matter of opinion.

#2. Not sure that’s a reason to vote for someone.

#3. No he can fumble all on his own.

#4. Well, that’s a plus.

#5. Still not a reason to vote for someone.

#6. He belongs to a “church” that preaches godhood and worship of multiple gods.

#7. He has a history of liberal government. Business maybe.

#8. You are correct but we know he can ride a bike and surf.

#9. Of course he worked well with democrats, he is one.

#10. Maybe.

I am "for" every conservative principle you could possible name.

Really? Then why are you voting for someone who clearly is for killing babies..for homosexuals...is a liar and fraud?

Actions speak louder than words as is said.

Look, nobody’s trying to sell you anything, especially now that you’ve ‘evolved.’

Frankly, I don’t want you on our side. You and your ilk give conservatives a bad name.

You only see the dark side. You have no hope. No trust.

Not saying you, but I’ve seen the most horrible Mormon bigotry on this site by people who hate Romney.

So, please, please, go on your merry way. We don’t want you.

Mitt’s history,... his record of flip-flops,... ad deviations from conservative and Republican positions ....is on an order of magnitude beyond anything else out there.......there really isn’t one central core to Romney as a political leader that is free of flip-flops, ..no one thing could be sure he’d never compromise in.

In order to have substance you have to have some measure of constancy...Romney has zip-zero consistancy...nada!

So why are you supporting Romney, when you say you are a conservative?
Romney is:
pro abortion
pro homosexual agenda
pro man made global warming
pro government mandate
pro big government
pro government health care
pro welfare
anti conservative
(and more)
Not one of those are conservative

I don’t consider Romney a liberal. Not at all.

He’s not as rock solid conservative as we might want but he’s got plenty of conservative credentials.

Even if I thought he was a bit liberal (which I don’t) I would still vote for him against the evil Marxist.

I don’t want to argue about it anymore.

You people do exactly what you please.

I wish you’d shut up about hating Romney, but I guess I can’t make you.

I am speaking for the remaining members who have some sense.

You went from an ABO to a stark raving promoter of the liberal pond scum, and you think the rest of us don't make sense?

I can understand (although I don't agree with it) the philosophy of voting for Romney to avoid a second term for Obama. But, you go well beyond that, claiming he is a conservative and you like him a lot.

Now, you just want people who disagree with you to just go away.

The whole process is informative to say the least. I now better understand how the Germans evolved in 1933.

Well, A I do not hate Romney, I do not know him personally, I do know his record.
I find it very interesting that you say that you are conservative and Romney is not a liberal.
Romney is:
pro abortion
pro homosexual agenda
pro government mandates
pro man mad global warming
pro gun grab
pro big government
pro government health care
pro welfare
(and more)
Not one of those is a conservative concept.
Again, how do you reconcile that with your stated conservationism and Romney is not a liberal.
I would really like to know how you come to the conclusion you are a conservative and Romney is not a liberal.

It is Mitt Romney’s job right now to sell himself to me. I’v listed the things I look for in a candidate. All those other trappings (the list in this article) points to the Liberals’ way at looking and judging things, academic, titles, credentials, superficial stuff.

But GOP made the decision that it is the so-called ‘swing voters’ that they are targeting.

>>> We don’t want you. <<<

So sorry to disappoint you. Doesn’t matter if YOU don’t want me, I am a conservative, and that’s that.

Well Said!

I have learned one thing from this election cycle and that is that there are people who at least claim to be conservative that are every bit as nutty and lacking in common sense as any liberal. Many are on this site and posting in this thread. In addition to being completely off the reservation, they, just like the libs are very prone to distorting and lets just face it, lying, to support their position. Just like the libs their fault is the belief that they are purer, smarter, and intellectually superior to us who live in real ville.

There is NO antiMormon hate or threads on FR.

The problem is that the liar and incompetent Romney
when not backstabbing, attacks anyone criticizing HIM.

Stop peddling lies about FR for your Master, Bishop Romney,
who is the sole author of BOTH RomneyCARE and gay marriage.

"Hum? What lies in this thread? Who is off the reservation? Lots of accusations and no facts."

Romney is: pro abortion pro homosexual agenda pro government mandates pro man mad global warming pro gun grab pro big government pro government health care pro welfare (and more)

That list is simply not accurate beyond mere distortion or exaggeration.

Want an example of "off the reservation". First, would be all the posters that say there is no difference in Romney and Obama, that they are one in the same. These people don't have the first clue about how our system of government works or they would NOT say this. To be an adult and have this opinion is clearly off the reservation

Another is all the "I'll never vote for Romney" crowd. Who seem to think doing a write in vote is somehow not voting for Romney and not helping to reelect Obama. They are free to vote or not vote however they want but their mind set is off the reservation.

Lies, distortions = Romney appointed liberal justices. People that make this claim are either misinformed (distorting) or they know the truth of the Mass. System but are in fact (lying) about his appointments.

I could go on and on but I'm not going to get into a pissing match with those that have mindset that is not based in reality.
