Mitt Romney out of control
The Washington Post ^ | January 4, 2012 | Dana Milbank

Posted on 01/04/2012 9:45:55 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

MANCHESTER, N.H. — If this is Mitt Romney’s idea of a victory rally, one shudders to think what would have happened if he had lost the Iowa caucuses.

The day after his impossibly thin eight-vote victory, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination flew here for a town hall meeting at Manchester Central High School, where he was to bask in the endorsement of his 2008 arch rival, John McCain.

But the senator grimaced when he was introduced, and as Romney delivered his own stump speech, an increasingly impatient McCain pulled up his sleeve and checked his watch. McCain gave his endorsement address without mentioning Romney’s Iowa win until the end. “By the way, we forgot to congratulate him on his landslide victory last night,” he said, laughing. Romney ignored him.

Then came the questions: First, one from an Occupy Wall Street infiltrator needling the candidate about his belief that “corporations are people.” A second questioner wanted to know why Romney flip-flopped on universal health care when he was governor of Massachusetts and why he would not increase health-care costs.....

Thank you Captain Obvious (the author). Mitt has been out of control a long time.

McCain was growing impatient because his Depends needed to be changed.

Yeah, but we don't deserve them.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

It sounds like McCain was not enthusiastic with his endorsement. So, why endorse him?

Expect to see McCain’s fellow RINO puke Lindsey Graham endorsing Romney next.

From this report, it really sounds like the Rove types contacted McLame last night and told him to do this pronto for some reason. I am sure he owes them plenty. This just shows how out of touch the inside the beltway crowd is. Who in their right mind would think this endorsement would add up to anything more than an embarrassment.

[ Mitt Romney out of control ]

Could be BUT his handlers are seriously in control..
They control academia, hollywood, Washington D.C., most all media, and probably the voting machines..

I would say they are in control..
Cloward-Piven is almost never heard in print or video..
Top down, bottom up, and inside out is happening..
Rules for Radicals(Alinsky) “IS” the rule..

To all: You don’t have to like Mitt Romney to hate Dana Milbank. This article is a filth rag from beginning to end and just a good example of what will be done to whoever is the eventual GOP nominee.

“So, why endorse him?”

Exactly. And, without reading the article, it sounds like McCain is the one out of control, not Romney.

How can you be sarcastic about the person you’re endorsing?

Obnoxious.

Because no one else wanted mclame’s endorsement.

Was anyone impressed with the endorsement? Obviously not even Mitt.

Probably because he does what the establishment tells him. Mitt probably gave him a nice bonus check too.

I’m thinking that Dana Milbank isn’t out for what is best for Republicans. Just a hunch.

Because he absolutely hates and despises conservatives, especially Newt and Santorum. And because mccain is a wholly owned dupe of george soros.

40% isn't a landslide. Barely winning by 8 votes isn't a "mandate" of any kind. It's a slap in the face, the kind that should make Romney aware of how many voters really don't care for him. Same with Clinton in '92: The jerk wins with what, 41% of the vote, and crows that he "has a mandate from the people to move forward." Reagan winning all but one state in '84, now THAT's a mandate!!

The RNC is so out of touch, it's tragic. We have SUCH an opportunity to confront Obama and his ilk on what they've done to the US, and to offer an alternative, but Nooooooo, the RNC floats "Ahnold lite" in the form of Mittens as the guy. Ew.

I don’t like or support Romney but there is something so condescendingly bitchy about everything Dana Milbanks writes.

I like Milbanks far less than Romney, so I’m labeling this hit piece as more liberal B.S. from the Obama press corps.

I believe Santorum will begin grabbing all of the anti-Mitt vote after New Hampshire and will beat Mittens like a drum. I just don’t see a way Mittens wins the nomination while being routinely rejected by 70% of the GOP electorate.

An endorsement by McVain should be the kiss of death for Romney! The bigger problem, however, is that Romney is the default candidate. Most conservatives DON'T want him, but they end up defaulting to him because the media has convinced them that he is "the guy" and that all the other contenders are beatable!!

If that's how people vote, we deserve Romney!! C'mon, conservatives, we can do better!!

Great column. Thanks for posting it! I just saw the video of McLame trying to get the crowd all excited. In the background I saw young audience memvers giggling among one another. When he reached the pinnacle of his poor attempt at vibrance, people were reluctantly clapping out of discomfort I suppose.

Iowa got it right: 75 percent unite and say NO to Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney is the Democrats DREAM CANDIDATE because he successfully inoculates Obama from just about all of his most ignominious positions, including Obama’s biggest weakness OBAMACARE.

ROMNEY would be unable to criticize Obama’s worst positions with any rectitude from Abortion, gay “marriage” to Obamacare because Romney has supported ALL OF THEM. Inoculation at its finest.

The problem for Santorum is going to be Fla.
Mittens has been blitzing the state with ads and other mailings.

It’s a large state and hard to campaign there. Santorum needs money and lots of it. Stopping in at coffee shops to meet and greet will not work in Fla.

So if Mittens wins NH and Fla....
