Skip to comments.A Romney we can respect (So it begins)

Old friend Mitt Romney understands that if the occasion should ever arise, hes not actually allowed to use a PowerPoint presentation during a presidential inaugural address right? Mitt, right?
After his performance in Michigan last week, youve got to wonder what form his marriage proposal took to Ann. Listen, Sweetie, as you can see from the bar chart on this next slide, the genetic risk of me ever losing my hair is incalculably low.
Romneys use of a projector and overhead screen at least weeks health care speech billed as the most important event of his young campaign was not the biggest surprise. Thats becoming par for an increasingly unorthodox course. It wasnt even the fact that he kept referring to Massachusetts as my state after belittling us for years. Mitt, all is forgiven; welcome home, friend.
No, the biggest shock by far was the content of his speech. Mitt Romney actually planted a flag in the middle of a controversial issue and defended it. He stood up for something he had already done. It might have been the most un-Mitt of moments since he apparently sold off his entire collection of silk neckties.
In terms of background, Romney has been under fire for his role in the passage of the states 2006 health care overhaul, the landmark law that has dramatically reduced the number of uninsured people in Massachusetts, stayed within cost projections, led to a steep drop in so-called free care, and is widely popular here. Besides that, its been a disaster.
Every conservative across this grand nation has demanded an apology from Romney for the utter lunacy of successful health care reform. The poor fops at the Wall Street Journal editorial page breathlessly dubbed him Obamas Running Mate.(continued)

If the left media wants him....WE DONT.
If Romney turns out to be the candidate, I will hold my nose and vote for him.
Anybody but Obama.
But I would much rather see Herman Cain or Michele Bachmann win and at the top of the ticket.
I've been through too many of these “vote for our guy because he's not as bad as the other guy” elections.
If Romney gets the nomination, I will actively support a Conservative Third Party candidate. My reason? Romney is another of those “I'll cross the isle” types, which means, he does subscribe to many aspects of Liberalism. Romney, Daniels, Pawlenty and Gingrich are Republicans in the image of a Bob Dole or John McCain. They are also all week candidates and will get the same result as ‘08. If that's the type of candidate the Republican Party wants, realizing Sen Dole does have health issues, why not just nominate John McCain again???
You know the old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me”? Well, I would modify that (for me) to “Fool me five times, shame on me”. Sorry, but not this Conservative. I'll work for another Party to supplant the Republican Party in the long term, working for an optimistic future for my children.
youve got to wonder what form his marriage proposal took to Ann.
Actually Mitty didnt propose to 15 yo Ann
Daddy did that for him
George did everything for lil Mitty
Picked her out as a future suitable wife for the son he was frooming to be POTUS
and took the Methodist girl into his own home in order to finish bringing her up and to teach her how ro be a good mormon wife...
Oh yes Mitty has never had to make any big decisions on his own...
And even the little decisions he has made stunk...
Putting the dog on the roof of the car ???
and then wondering why it pooped in fright ???
Bright idea Mitt...
Not a single one of these claims is true, so why would we believe anything the writer has to say, or even keep reading beyond this point?
Most of the uninsured who have not been picked up by Medicaid or taxpayer subsidies are still uninsured. The cost estimates are low by between 10 and 25%, and as for "free care," [read: expensive for those who actually pay, like most thievery] that has been merely shifted from people whose bills were once paid by other hospital patrons to taxpayers -- in other words, only the collection agency for "free care" is different, the people actually paying are the same people as before.
Myth Romney is the new John McLaim..
I don't need to hear anything else Romney has to say, it's a done deal for me.
The Romney I can respect is the one who admits he is in no way conservative and promises to never appear on my TV screen again.
That's about the only way Jeb can make it............Good food for thought on what may be really going on.
My, my, my....
Isn’t THIS a surprise!!!
So nice of the Libsucks to tell us who we should nominate.
Of course, Mitt may be a nice guy NOW, but if (God Forbid, PLEASE!!!) he were to get the nomination, the MSM would turn on him and rip him to pieces faster than Michael Moore could take out a slice of Pepperoni pizza.
Bush for Prez is as sickening as Romney. Its time for new blood not more blue blood.
Frig that. If $hit Romney Marsh is the candidate, I’m voting for ME !
I will never forget when he first started running for President and they showed a picture of his wife with her horse. I myself have done dressage, jumping; etc; but that’s not the point. The point is he and his wife do not understand America. It was like a smack in the face to Americans. Like they were saying we are your betters and don’t you forget it; even though I think they were probably thinking we are showing them what class is. Strange as it may sound; I have never liked him after that. I didn’t know who he was and didn’t know he was as rich as he is; but it was such a show of rudeness; I could never vote for him. I will say it was a nice picture but spoke volumes as to the disconnect the elitists have. They just don’t think they are human beings.
If the Boston Globe (New York Times) and Soros
want Romney, then if the GOP takes him, we
will not vote for him, but work against him AND the GOP.
The only way to stop this is for the non-Rinos to align behind one of the other candidates early. I’m not saying who, but we need to focus very hard on the earliest debates, pick one person, and support him or her. Otherwise we are going to get Romney as Mr. Next-in-line, and as you point out that is going to be very bad.
The Boston Globe (AKA NYTimes Lite) endorsing Romney. That tells me everything I need to know about the guy.
I will not vote for a socialist just because he is in the republican party.
If you believe we are on a path to destruction that can be avoided by voting for a CS’er like Romney then you do NOT understand the problem. F-—, even if it was possible to put Regan himself in that office again, we could not avoid the destruction. Why? because its already here...
The stupid F’ers who scuttled this nation are going to fight to drag us down with them. We have a WAR on our hands that MUST be fought if we are going to survive and rebuild something that will bring freedom to ourselves, our families and future generations. We can no longer afford to ally ourselves with the enemy. We cannot allow them in our ranks to toss grenades into our tents.
It is FAR more important to purge our ranks of the enemy than it is to “win” some useless federal election by placing the enemy there in our name. If we cant put a loyal soldier in these federal positions to sabotage, distract and cause general disarray within the enemy capital, then we need to focus entirely on what is VITAL to our cause. Getting our real fighters into positions of power in the states.
F romney, newt, all of the democrat party and any other POF’ingS socialist that currently breaths air.
Thats the thing. They want to put him in and have people vote like you vote. Hold your nose. The presupposition behind that is that YOU CANT GET THE PERSON YOU WANT. WELL HELL YES WE CAN. Its time to tap dance on the wind pipe of the media that constantly shovels that propaganda. We pummeled Obama and his ilk in the last election, lets finish the Job and run their @sses out of town!
