Scott Brown: Romney’s much cooler now than he used to be
HotAir ^ | January 30, 2010 | Allahpundit

Posted on 01/30/2010 11:11:36 AM PST by Al B.

Thus prompting the question: How uncool did he used to be?

"He’s changed, he’s changed. You know, he’s actually — before he was an outsider coming in and he was, you know, kind of, you know, stiff. But he’s actually, like, funny, he’s like — when he was at my events he was cracking jokes, when we were on the bus — I was like, who is this guy? He’s really kind of, I think, settled into his role kind of being the elder statesman of the party and everything he went through as president. It’s kind of, and once again it’s my opinion but he’s really a different guy than I knew when he was here, and I certainly appreciate everything he did for me. And it wasn’t a lot, he was just there as the initial — you know, ‘here’s a check, go get em!’ And that says a lot, you know, when I signed my contract with the team, you know — I worried about, how am I gonna pay for this? And he was one of the first guys that helped me towards that obligation. And I remember those people who took a chance."

So uncool that he lost to John McCain in the 2008 Florida Primary.

A lot of us do not remember the Romney, Presidential years fondly, frankly, I don't remember them at all.

Geeeez! He sounds like my daughter. I think they must be about the same age. My daughter says "You Know" all the time when she is talking and it drives me nuts. I tell her "Yes I know" and if you would quit saying that you could get to your point much sooner.

Of course it does, but it also reveals what Mitt is up to, Mitt actually bought a house in California to get his liberal protege into the Governor’s office.

Mitt Romney helped the pro abortion Brown, because he did not see him as too conservative for Mitt’s goals for the GOP, which is to make sure that conservatism is defeated, something that has motivated the Romney family for many decades.

For those of us that accept Brown as the Pro abortion Senator for Massachusetts, it is important to not let him contaminate the national party, especially by making Romney less repulsive to uninformed voters.

Are the anti-Romney posters actually Dems? I love when they go anti- mormon or he said this or that in 1994. He isn’t a candidate for anything as far as I know.

When did this interview take place and who are the participants?

The header is very misleading - and the conversation (as written) appears to be a stream of consciousness between a 4th grader and herself.

Is this meant to represent a Scott Brown interview?

So Allah Pundit says if Romney plegdes to never sign support another Romney Care again, then cosnervatives should line behind him.

Obama will have a field day high lighting Romney’s flip flops.

Romney was pro-abortion, now pro-life.

Romney was for RomneyCare, now against RomneyCare.

Romney was pro-gay marriage, now anti-gay marriage.

Romney was pro-TARP, now anti-TARP.

Romney was pro-bailout for GM, now anti-GM bailout.

What’s next, Romney becoming a Southern Baptist?

This is a site for conservative activists, influencing who runs in Republican primaries is a fundamental function of the site.

Trying to discourage voting by freerepublic members for particular Democrats is not something that needs a lot of attention here, but keeping liberals out of Republican elections, is definitely one of our goals.

You signed up here to push Romney because he is a Mormon, that is pretty much the definition of trolling.

Pffft.

We learned in ‘08 what happens if we merrily wait for the primaries to play out in backing strong Republicans. We get the likes of McCain, whom the media and the Dems wanted. If we wait again we’ll end up with the likes of whom the media and the Dems want again—Romney.

Answer your own questions, Mitt Romney helped Brown because he is not too conservative for his agenda.

How old are you? I signed up because I saw people attacking Romney for being a mormon and I think that is punk. If you are trying to influence people against a possible candidate , I think you would do better promoting a candidate you believe in. Hostility should be reserved for the Dems . They are the enemy and will possibly destroy this country if not stopped by a GOP takeover of the House of Reps.

Care to point out (link) or post your evidence of that scurrilous acusation?

FreeRepublic has a search function that works pretty well. You should have no problem finding hundreds of examples of the terrible biased postings of Freepers who are saying that Romney is horrible because he is a Mormon.

Please prove your point or shut-up!

I bet you can't even find 10 postings out of the millions that have been posted about Romney that prove your point.

Furthermore, what you will find, is a ton of objective and factual historical evidence as to why Romney is NOT a conservative and is not to be trusted, not because he is a Mormon, but because of his liberal positions and actions and his continual lying.

Put up or shut up!
