Mitt Romney 2012?
The Tusk ^ | 09/03/2009 | R Hargraves

Posted on 09/03/2009 8:55:03 AM PDT by KatyLoraleyVidales

All of you former Right Up Front readers know of my undying affection and unyielding loyalty to Mitt Romney. Indeed, he is my first choice for the nomination in 2012. Now it looks like the Stormin' Mormon may be testing the waters for an encore run at the GOP knod. Politico's Jonathan Martin has the details.

After a few stops in some early primary states and lavish fundraiser at a "trendy" Washington eatery, there are many reasons for any former Romney fan to be hopeful. And who better to go up against a now-obviously undisciplined current White House resident than the uber-disciplined, results oriented former businessman and governor?

Lucky for those of us squarely in the Mitt camp, it appears we're in good company. In March, he won the CPAC presidential preference straw poll for the third year in a row...

Did you forget the U. N. Korean Police Action, the first
war American and Russian politicians made sure we would
not try to win.

The USSR was in charge of American Troops during parts of
the Korean Police Action.
All Military plans were run through the USSR while they
were in charge.

Which led to SEATO and the Vietnam war which the
politicians of both parties were determined not to win.

I agree that Korea was a huge failure on the part of Truman and Eisenhower.

The only thing I liked about Truman was him giving critics of his child's singing or piano playing.

Name one thing he did that helped the USA other than
the Atomic bombs that saved many more lives then the
total of losses from both bombs.

Didn’t he make it mandatory to carry health insurance, whether you wanted to or not, and implement fines for those that don’t carry “approved” insurance? Isn’t the Massachusetts health care situation in the toilet now? Sounds pretty close to Obamacare for me.

Palin didn't lose because she didn't try, the McCain campaign had to rein her in because she was getting to be to much to handle for going on attack against McCain's opponent.
Palin had the unfortunate position of being chosen by McCain.
McCain treated Obama with velvet gloves, McCain had the chance to reveal to the country and the world who Obama really is and he didn't seize on that opportunity.
The McCain/Palin ticket lost because of McCain and other RINOS.

Then why is it costing Massachusetts millions in over runs.

You may want to review the reality not the original promotional brochure...

Harry Truman was a failure as a businessman and by nearly all accounts one of the best presidents of the 20th Century.

Too bad he was a liberal Democrat.

I sense that team Romney is in the beginnings of an offensive.

With Palin’s Facebook smack-down of Obamacare and the hard core reality of Romneycare along with his still unwavering support of his creation, Mitt's already non existent relevancy is now truing towards being a full blown joke...

Oh, he's been a full-blown joke now for a long time. I'm only sorry I didn't recognize that in 1994. I was 20 and still subscribed to that ignorant mindset about any Republican being better than any Democrat, not considering we had an invading army within (the only army Slick was ever with).

Not sure where you get your bullshit talking points from:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1960820/posts

But we conservatives don’t appreciate lying liberal tactics like what you posted. The RomneyCare program is a fiscal disaster and no amount of sugar can make that pile of dung smell sweet.

As Jim Robinson has said in the past...if you want to back Romney you are on the wrong forum.

Thanks for the ping Rabs.

Wagglebee: Harry Truman was a failure as a businessman and by nearly all accounts one of the best presidents of the 20th Century.

Are you a conservative freeper or a liberal historian?

Truman was an unqualified (least qualified in recent history till Obama) product of a corrupt Kansas City political machine (another similarity to Obama) and an epic fail on domestic and foreign policy.

He was horrendously unpopular for most of his Presidency. "To err is Truman" was the saying. After his death haughty historians decided they liked him and suddenly he's "great".

Add in misplaced adulation for him fulfilling his minimum job requirement during WW2, the popular and foolish myth that democrats were "good and honorable" before the 60's and a lot of bizarre simpatico on the part of Bush and other prominent Republicans cause he was a "War President" (zippity do dah) and you a have a popular image that is in starker contrast with reality than perhaps any other President.

From a issues perceptive and from a popularity perspective he was crap. Communism exploded as the Soviets occupied and enslaved millions and he did nothing expect give billions of taxpayer dollars away to Western Europe and mismanage the Korean War.

As a typical union owned dem he vetoed the much needed Taft-Hartley act. Read his speeches on domestic policy, sounds exactly like Al Gore. Pure class warfare 'GOP wants to take the bottle of our your babies' mouth' crap.

It's a testament to how bad FDR, Johnson, Carter and Clinton (though in writing this I'm feeling maybe Clinton was as quite as harmful) were that he's not the worst modern President.

Perhaps this post qualifies as a tirade but I'm sick of the casual admiration some freepers have for this awful socialist President. If FR existed in the late 40's every thread would have been about how much Truman needed to take a long walk off a short pier. Some liberal eggheads decide he was great and people just swallow it.
