Skip to comments.Serious Human Beings [Ref: Romney Staffer's attack on Sarah Palin] (Must Read!!)
Posted on 07/15/2010 11:06:05 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Even as the starting bell rings for the first round of the Republican presidential free-for-all, weve got a couple of anonymous Mitt Romney advisors coming off the top rope, aiming elbow smashes at Sarah Palins back. They said shes not a serious human being and if shes standing up there in a debate, and the answers are more than 15 seconds long, shes in trouble.
This childish and incoherent nonsense does a lot more damage to Mitt Romney than Sarah Palin. What, exactly, are the criteria for being considered a serious human being? Should she just give up her half-hearted attempts at humanity and drop dead? I would think raising a Downs-syndrome child would earn her a certain degree of automatic credit for seriousness. Its certainly not the kind of thing a frivolous human being would do. Romney should begin his campaign by firing anyone who maintains a Daily Kos diary.
The crack about fifteen-second debate answers is slightly more coherent, but utterly ridiculous. Anybody who can rock a sitting Presidential administration with Facebook posts has nothing to prove to the faceless minions of a voiceless bystander to the ObamaCare drama. The contenders for the GOP nomination will need to take some shots at each other, but they need to do it without questioning the very humanity of prospective candidates who havent even declared yet. In case the Romney machine hasnt noticed, Palin is popular with the Tea Party folks, who will be producing much of the grassroots energy during the 2012 election. Slouching into agreement with the laziest media caricatures of Big Mama Grizzly is not going to impress them.
Let me offer Romney, and the other GOP contenders hoping to climb into the steel cage with him and Palin, what were looking for in a serious candidate.
This election will not be fought over the fine details of a few specific pieces of legislation. It will not be a contest to find someone who can escort an unpopular Barack Obama from the White House, then trot back inside and continue shoveling trillions of dollars into the deficit furnace. We dont need a national CPA to provide a lecture on deficit reduction during his inauguration, then return for a State of the Union speech in which he explains spending cuts are pretty much impossible, while forklifts roll in with massive new tax packages. We have no use for someone who thinks ObamaCare is an awesome machine that just needs a new transmission and some mag wheels to reach its potential. We are about to conduct an election about the very philosophy of our government. It is our last chance to avoid the Great Crash which Obama has brought to our doorsteps but which would have lurked twenty or thirty years in the future even without him. The Obama presidency has begun a fundamental transformation of the relationship between Americans and their government. The groundwork for this transformation was laid over many years, by politicians from both parties. Government bloat has accumulated for decades. The State isnt really changing all that much under Barack Obama. Its working to change us.
To reverse this process, we must reach farther back than the administrations of George Bush or Bill Clinton. We are being crushed by engines of regulation, taxation, and corruption that were designed in the first decades of the last century. Were approaching the end of the story that began during the New Deal. It wont be good enough to merely rewind the tape a few years. Even such a half-hearted measure, simply returning us to where George Bush left us, would be the most spectacular reduction of State power in our entire history and it wouldnt be good enough.
The Republican candidate for president must be determined and sober about the magnitude of the change facing us, but also able to draw strength from an enduring belief in the spirit and capability of the American people. Its not hard to be a happy warrior when you stand in the front ranks of such a mighty force. Our candidate must understand the fatal flaws of Obamas ideology, not just the weaknesses of individual bills he has supported. A comprehensive knowledge of Americas socialist history, from inception to its current death throes, will be required. The Republican candidate must be able to explain why individual Americans will succeed, where the State has failed. It will be necessary to describe the love of liberty to a people who dont universally share it. They must learn to celebrate freedoms judged too dangerous for their feeble minds by the Democrat Party. They must learn to focus their will against a leviathan State that has no intention of dying quietly. Like Sarah Palin, they must be ready for their very humanity to be questioned, through dark insinuations of greed and racism.
We certainly do need some serious people to apply for the Oval Office job that will be opening in 2013. Mitt Romney disqualified himself when he failed to speak out against ObamaCare. Next, please.
Palin /West ‘12
The only 'beings' I've ever heard talk like that are Vulcans. Have the Vulcans now infiltrated Romney's campaign?
John Bolton for Secretary of State.
Speaking of ObamaCare, and Sarah Palin, here's a link to what CeCe Heil, endorsed by Sarah, had to say about how simply to make this a non-issue, as soon as January.
So it's Glenn Beck for President?
When can we start burning Woodrow Wilson in effigy?
its as funny as those who say. Palin is really not a woman. Palin is not really a serious human being?!!?! :) ROFL
I got an advice to potential GOP candidates. If you want to prove yourself better candidate than Palin. GO AFTER OBAMA!!! Taking down Palin so that you can be ahead is not the way to go
Doctor Zero really lays it out. Whomever becomes the next President must destroy Leviathan. It is a job for someone with the moral seriousness of Palin or Christie, some others. But not, a thousand times not Romney.
We haven't heard a peep out of Romney opposing Obama's totalitarian agenda. And all we hear now are his staffers making snide remarks. He needs to humbly admit his own irrelevance and stand aside.
“We dont need a national CPA to provide a lecture on deficit reduction during his inauguration, then return for a State of the Union speech in which he explains spending cuts are pretty much impossible, while forklifts roll in with massive new tax packages. We have no use for someone who thinks ObamaCare is an awesome machine that just needs a new transmission and some mag wheels to reach its potential.”
It seems to me that someone working for the Robo-candidate should be the LAST person to question someone’s humanity.

Mega-Muttster / Mitt-Flop NON-starter 2012, or ever.
Mitt go home and leave us alone!
No matter what, no Mitt. We do not need a mannequin in the White House, we need a President. We need someone more interested in doing the job WELL than someone apparently interested in looking the part. Sarah Palin may very well be the serious candidate, when the time comes. Or, there may be more. None of the serious candidates will be Mitt Romney. Nor any of the similarly puffed-up wannabes. The situation our country finds itself in is dire enough that the call for a good man or woman to fill the job is considerably greater than it ordinarily might be. While Mr. Romney may have the aspiration, he has shown NOTHING appropriate to the circumstances, where Ms. Palin has consistently shown her stripes via speaking engagements, her Facebook page, and endorsing candidates who are, generally, winners. The latter being more than the sitting prez seems capable of, I might add. While none are perfect, some are better suited by far. She hits a lot closer to the mark than Mr. Romney.
