His supporters say the book will show Romney is more thoughtful than Sarah Palin.
BY KENNETH T. WALSH
Friends of Mitt Romney say his upcoming book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, is a lengthy and detailed explanation of his philosophy and should be a fitting prelude to a 2012 presidential campaign if Romney decides to run. The book, which comes out March 2, seems designed to position Romney as a thoughtful conservative who has ruminated carefully about the major issues of the day, ranging from the global economy to national security.
Romney supporters say it will serve as a conservative contrast to the views of President Obama but also will show Romney to be far more thoughtful than former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who is also considering a 2012 run. Her book, Going Rogue, is a bestseller, but it has apparently done little to improve her reputation as a thinker and a leader who can reach out beyond her conservative base and master the complicated challenges of national office.

Yeah, and Obama’s supporters said there would be rainbows and unicorns that shed gold and silver dander. It isn’t to barf but to laugh.
Both of them?
I can find toilet paper at a lot lower cost than this book.
He is another one that can just GO AWAY.
More thoughtful? What the heck is that supposed to mean. What an odd statement. Are they saying she is not thoughtful..They must have read a few tweets from SarahPalinRadio, she was interviewed on that station and it will be played tomorrow..she said in response to Glenn Beck saying it was Romney’s turn to be the nominee, Sarah said “I don’t agree with Glenn, its NOT Romney’s turn”
So his book makes him out to be a better woman than Sarah Palin?
This is the new anti-Palin talking point from the Romneybots, Huckacopkillerlovers, McCainiacs and other RINOS: Thoughtful conservative. Expect the MSM to run with it.
Did Beck really say it was ROMNEY’S turn?
Did Glenn Beck say it’s Romney’s TURN to be the Republican nominee?
What happened to his thridy party fantasy? Gone with Sarah statement that she’s a Republican and remaining a Republican?
I wonder how big the chapter on Romneycare is going to be?
He is thoughtful alright, and a real right wing kind of guy, except for the left of center stuff, and the Planned Parenthood fundraising, and the giving of all the money solely to Democrat candidates for that period, and the voting for Paul Tsongas, the year before he became a Republican, after switching from his Republican registration to protest President Reagan.
To quote the great conservative Mitt Romney himself.
Mitt Romney: "I'm not a partisan politician. My hope is that, after this election, it will be the moderates of both parties who will control the Senate, not the Jesse Helmses."
Mitt Romney: "I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I'm not trying to return to Reagan-Bush."
Mitt Romney:"These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense," "They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people."
"I was not planning on signing up for the military. It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam..."
Go away, Romney, we don’t need another McCain running.
Duncan Hunter/Sarah Palin, whichever way you want to mix it up, now that is a conservative ticket.
Its posted here, its about a 10 minute video, of him on the radio talking about his interview with Sarah
He mentions that its Romney’s turn to be the nominee. Glenn is such a flip flopper, first he says that he wants a 3rd party to happen(I guess he wants the Dems to have power forever) then he thinks its Romney’s turn in 2012
Besides, the thridy party just threw all its votes to Romney.............
You're still in shock from the jolts to the Bolts.........
Starting at about 0:40. He was referring, somewhat contemptuously, to the Republican's habit picking of whoever's turn it is next like when they picked Dole.
I meant THIRDY PARTY.
Oh, good. I thought Glenn had gone officially schizo rather than just pretending for laughs.......
Romney is of course a mormon.
We live in a Nation that is predominently Christian.
mormons are in a cult. They are not Christian.
There is no possible way for a mormon Republican Nominee.
Just the truth.
NO, it’s not Romney’s TURN. It’ll never be Romney’s turn.
He didn’t win any states that he wasn’t able to buy.
They forgot to mention Huckabee, when it comes to “turns.” He’s run just as many times as Romney: ONCE.
LOL. I just mean it as a slam. Happy Thirdy Party...lol.
“More thoughtful? What the heck is that supposed to mean?”
He thought alot about abortion before he supported it and then he thought alot about running for President before he was against it.
Then, he forgot to think alot about RomneyCare, not knowing that ObamaCare would be a primary issue.
But now he is thinking alot about that now.
I tell ya, Glenn is a good guy but he is one strange bird..sometimes I wonder what side he’s really on, I think he was soured on Sarah because she didn’t agree on his 3rd party BS..she closed the door to that option and made him look like a fool. He’s been promoting that BS for months
Wonder if Romney will stick by his political transformation from a liberal Republican to a unprincipled, two faced liar, or will he have another epiphany yet.
The bigger question is, will Scott Brown be Romney's running mate in 2012, or will it be the other way around?[/sarc]
Oh so he wasn’t being serious..that’s a relief
Yes, she popped his fantasy balloon during the last minute of their “conversation” and he’s not going to recover from that for a good, long while. The very next day he went on BOR’s show to pronounce that she will need to lower her shields and disembowel people like O’Reilly if she’s going to run for POTUS.
Yeah when Glenn said that on O’Reilly’s show I thought that was the stupidest comment he has ever made..I thought to myself, wait a minute, so are you telling me Glenn that in order for Sarah Palin or anyone else to be a contender for the Presidency of the United States, he/she has to be able to beat the “Great” Bill O’Reilly in a game of “Whose Smarter” Okie Dokie..I’ll take a crack at it and if I win, I too can become President. Glenn was kissing BOR’s butt WAY TOO Much and that statement was proof of that
BTW, Glenn is a great student of history and he knows better than most the failure of third parties. I think his thinking is more like ours, in that he wants to get rid of incumbents, but he should start saying that in plain language. I part company with him when he says both parties are the same, because they’re NOT. Read the platforms and watch the various votes in congress.
Go for it! You've already got a GOOD name !!!!
Hey you should run too. I bet you can take on Bill O’Reilly. Boy I’d have to go back and read some of my old history books to catch up. Haven’t been to school in a while, but heck, I’ll give it the ol college try. I can take him on. Bill is all smoke and mirrors. A few months ago he said that even though he is a Harvard grad he did not understand the health care bill. Is he serious, he doesn’t get it..I get it, Obama and his commie buddies want America to become Europe, there, took me three seconds to figure it out and I’ve never stepped foot in Harvard
I’ll wait to pick it up in the 99¢ bin, on March 3rd.
I think what Glenn said was that Pubs generally seem to go for the guy whose “turn” it is, like it was Bob Dole’s turn, or McCain’s turn, and this time they may think it’s Romney’s “turn”. It wasn’t an endorsement, he was hoping it wouldn’t happen.
Romney and his supporters sure seem to think about Sarah Palin a lot.
Gee, I wonder why?
Ohhh Ok..now I see..thanks for clearing it up for me. I hope it doesn’t happen either. I don’t really know Romney so I can’t judge him, but when I think of Romney, I think of RomneyCare, which to me is the exact same thing as ObamaCare, so really, between Obama and Romney, other then there being an R next to Romney’s name, is there really much of a difference between the two
Not me. I’d get too many “deer in the headlights” moments, which is another reason I admire Sarah so much and distain and hate the news media, because they’re not honest or fair brokers.
Nah no you wouldn’t..you would do great. The media is obsessed with Sarah because they know she can beat Obama..that’s the bottom line, if she wasn’t a threat to their messiah, they would have left her alone a long time ago. They follow her everywhere and trash her every second of everyday. It’s really getting old, especially the crap from Joy Behar’s mouth..she makes Olbermann seem decent. I was watching Fox yesterday and I had no idea that she said this but she said the most disgusting thing to date about Sarah’s children. I don’t even know if I can repeat it here..Let’s just say that her ass should be fired, if a Republican had said that about Obama or his family his/her behind would be in the welfare line
Thankyou for your honesty.
Joy Behar is a wretched, ugly bitch with a mouth to match. I understand she has her own show on cnn, so why does Fox televize her crap?
it wasn’t televised, someone had commented on what she said. It was absolutely DISGUSTING and I had no idea she had even said it. Joy is missing some screws. I don’t know what happened to her as a kid but she is an angry, hateful, sack of poo. I feel so sorry for her daughter, being raised by a mother like that, the poor kid doesn’t stand a chance

>> Both of them?
Come on now ... Mitt has more than just two fans:
She’s a bitter old bag. I recently read that she’s 67 years old and she looks every year of that and more, yet she trash talks like a 30 year old. I didn’t know she has a daughter. UGH. Hope she’s nothing like her mother.
What a nasty, miserable, dried up old biddy Joy Behar is.
