Which might be a good example of the difference between intelligence and IQ.
That reminds me of a little anecdote about Paul Castellano, former boss of the Gambino Crime family. One time he had all his top guys, his Capos, his hitters, etc, sitting around a table when he praised the cops for being heroes. According to one who was there at that moment, you could have heard a pin drop.
and they wonder why people leave the party? This is a perfect example. I have stated previously that while Romney is a good husband and family man...there is just something about him that I never liked. Have never been able to put my finger on it to date but...perhaps this was what I was seeing and not realizing it.
We left that party a LONG time ago. They have done NOTHING for us.
You are 100% right. The CRFs brought us Obama by rejecting the one person who had the best chance to stop him and now they complain. It’s like the guy who kills his parents and whines about being an orphan. It is certifiable and, apparently, terminal.
I don't trust Mitt Romney. The Romney family has always been firmly in the Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party. George Romney fought against Reaganism in the Republican Party. His son assured the voters of Massachusetts that he was not part of the Reagan Revoluation and his governing actions proved it.
Mitt Romney is not the answer for the Republican Party and most definitely not for the conservative movement.
I am not a Romney fan, but I dont hate him. This however makes me wonder. What we need now is an uncompromising individual. Some one who will not “meet in the middle.” Whenever we go to them to be bi-partisan and “compromise” it is conservative principles that are given up and compromised on. I Say NO MORE! NO MORE compromise! NO MORE praise of a president hell bent on destroying our country! NO MORE being the ones who cross the isle. NO MORE BY GOD! NO MORE!
Get lost Romney. You’re in the wrong party.
Vichyists, all of them, wanting us and our tax dollars invested in “hope he succeeds”. Same fubar communist sucker rhetoric of “tried but implemented wrong”.
Seems like the water torture has given its fruitless fruits of bondage of success to the One, success for truth and America itself be damned, we all got to hope in that Ponzi scheme.
There will be some payment for this, and from unbeknownst corners of debts that these beast breeders and facilitators cannot figure yet.
The economy is the big deal right now. Obama and team are making every wrong turn and even the sheeple are starting to question if he has any idea what he’s doing. What does the MSM do? Try to get the right to cannibalize itself. Take the rights eloquent economic speaker and cast him at every turn as a friend to Obama. — Romney makes a 40 minute speech with a dozen criticisms of Obama, a defense of capitalism, limited government and free markets, and few lines of bipartisan crap — Report the bipartisan crap, keep the sheeple from hearing any of that dangerous limited government talk. Sit back and watch the right fight among themselves. When the economy is not the top issue the guns will turn to Palin or Sanford. Like the scientology/Palin story that came out a few weeks ago, or the Sanford global warming stories that come up whenever he starts to seem to dangerous to the Left. When will we learn?
Everyone cried how we needed a strong conservative, yet when they saw one, shied away because others were too.
That is sheeple and why we are in the fix we are in.
Until we begin strongly supporting the “long shots” that actually believe in and practice conservatism, including Sarah Palin, we will remain as we are, crying “where is the conservative!!!”
"The Greek and Roman Churches, which have been called Christian, and which take the name of Christians as a cloak, have worshipped innumerable idols. On this account, on the simple subject of the Deity and His worship, if nothing more, I should rather incline, of the two, after all my early traditions, education, and prejudices, to the side of Mahomet, for on this point he is on the side of truth, and the Christian world on the side of idolatry and heathenism." FLDS/LDS Apostle Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p.38
"Now, if we take Mahometanism during those dark ages, and the corruptions that are so universally prevalent over the earth, and the idolatrous systems of religion, falsely called Christianity, and weigh them in a balance; with all my education in favor of Christian nations and Christian powers, and Christian institutions, so called, with all my prejudices of early youth, and habits of thought and reading, my rational faculties would compel me to admit that the Mahometan history and Mahometan doctrine was a standard raised against the most corrupt and abominable idolatry that over perverted our earth, found in the creeds and worship of Christians" FLDS/LDS Apostle Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p.40
Liberal Republicans like Giuliani and Romney are never embraced by enough conservatives to make a difference and will never become potus. What they do succeed at, is fracturing the GOP and giving the Demlibs an open field to election victory. At least Giuliani didn't hide his hardcore social liberalism.
OTOH, Romney is still working overtime in a futile effort to hoodwink some Republicans into accepting his recent political conversions. At the same time either ignoring or forgetting his life long support for liberal issues and liberal causes. Willard's rhetoric at CPAC and the NRSC may have struck a cord with some folks. I just wouldn't call them conservatives.
Calling all Mittens. Your guy is a loser. We’re happy to have you back in the fold.
Mitt, You’re outta here.
BiPartisan = RINO
"praises 0bama" = STINKIN' RINO!!!
This simplifies my choices.
Potential candidates for 2012:
Link: Romney believes that one way to attract more minorities to the GOP is to pass immigration reform before the next election, saying the issue becomes demagogued by both parties on the campaign trail.
Hopefully, it is not too late. You are right, there were far more criticisms of Obama in that speech, but there is no headline shouting "Romney Slams Obama." Luckily, there are only a small minority of CRFers and their ilk who are blinded by their irrational hatred. Most savvy conservatives can discern when the MSM is playing games with us.
Following the Alinsky playbook SENTINEL has now taken a criticism of Romneys politics and turned it into an attack on Mormonism. That will certainly help our cause in Utah and Idaho, the two reddest states we have. Hate Mitt Romney? Great! Hate RINOs and moderates? Great! Attack bad ideas all day long but posts like SENTINELs just piss off Mormons and serve the Lefts strategy to divide and conquer the right.
