Posted on 02/12/2010 8:14:17 AM PST by NoRedTape
"Now, two weeks before publication of "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," Romney is pivoting again -- this time pitching himself as a problem solver whose background as a successful financier makes him the ideal candidate to rescue the ailing U.S. economy.
But the real problem, said the paper, is "the real Mitt Romney Harvard MBA, political scion, hard-working businessman, super-wealthy master of Wall Street offerings, devout Mormon might not be what Republican primary voters actually want."

Give it up Romney- you were a LOSER in the last race - to McLAME!!!! of all people, so what makes you think we want second-best now?
The man who gave Massachusetts Romney care? Hell no.
The worst thing to be said about Mitt Romney is how the mere mention of his name fails to do the same thing with the libtard and beltway RINO crowd..
Have you ever thought that those you slime here as ‘fundy bigots’ are actually against Romney because he makes the RINOs and libs warm and fuzzy?
Mitt Romney version 4.01 beta.
I kind of look forward to learning who the newest Romney will be, it is like waiting for a new Hollywood release.
I anticipate this one being stern and serious, and really, really grown up.
Mitt Romney’s motto for this election go round should be “Mitt Romney - I can be whatever it takes to get your vote.”
Yeah, except this is the third sequel where the original was a stinker as well.
It’s the Country Club Republican way. Mr. Second-Place gets the next nomination because, as Bob Dole so eloquontly put it - “It’s my turn damnit!”
“The best thing to be said about Mitt Romney is how the mere mention of his name will send the fundy bigots into an absolute hissy fit.”
“fundy bigots” founded this nation, punk.
Free Republic is a fringe right-wing Christian fundamentalist site

Free Republic is a fringe right-wing Christian fundamentalist site... or so they say... and they might even be right.
We don’t go for any of that godless left-wing big government socialist malarkey. And we do put our faith and trust in God, not government. We are pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Family, pro-Country and pro-Liberty.
We do not believe that government or science knows what’s best for us or our children. We will make our own decisions thank you very much.
Every once in a while some group of posters get together and try to bend Free Republic to their will. Now, we tend to be pretty free-wheeling around here and will take a lot of guff and a lot of obnoxious insults from a lot of people, but eventually a breaking point is reached.
For example, when a group of RINO lovers recently banded together to try to force FR to accept an abortionist/gay rights RINO as our presidential candidate, they soon found themselves on the outs.
And a few years ago a group of evolutionists tried to force FR over to their way of thinking and they soon found themselves on the outs.
FR is a pro-God, pro-Creator, pro-Life, pro-Liberty site.
And now we have yet another group of Darwinists trying to have their Darwinist way with us. Well, as I’ve said before what doesn’t kill us will only make us stronger.
Darwin Central has again declared war on FR. They have ping lists and email lists and will try to pull away as many FReepers as they possibly can. So be it. Those who would rather go with Darwin, please go. I sure as hell won’t try to stop you.
FR will remain a pro-God, pro-Life, pro-Liberty, pro-Creator conservative site.
We wholeheartedly believe that our unalienable rights are a gift from God our Creator not from man or government. And no man, no government will ever deprive us of same.
Keep your powder dry.

Very very true!
Any marketers around here?
IF so, why does politicians believe so much in BRANDING, or is this just because so many MBAs nowadays go into politics???
It is SO phoney!
Meg Whitman's campaign guru donated max to Obama -- while she advised McCain
"Even as former eBay CEO Meg Whitman acted as a high-profile backer and adviser to 2008
GOP presidential candidate John McCain, her top aide Henry Gomez -- now an eMeg
gubernatorial campaign majordomo -- donated the maximum to Democrat Barack Obama,
federal records show. Gomez, a trusted top insider in Republican Whitman's 2010 gubernatorial
campaign, donated the maximum $2,300 allowed to the general election campaign of Obama
in the days before -- and the weeks following -- the former eBay CEO's high profile televised
address to the GOP National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he accompanied Whitman around the..."
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++8 to 10 pts. in some polls, days prior to the election.
So rather than helping the GOP, poor loser I am Myth Romney and
TeamROMNEY decided to attack Gov. Palin (and her defenseless children) to throw Election2008.
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
Erick Erickson, who organized Operation Leper, said:
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
None of these wimps are candidate material, IMO. Newt included! These “supposed” Republicans have no spine, no guts, no gonads. They’re still searching for them with both hands and a mirror and coming up empty handed. Give me a break. Thank God we have real men and women in our military. If we had these wimps, we’d be through. These supposed Republicans make me ill and disgusted. No wonder America’s Greatest Generation must be rolling in their graves. I know my father, who was a veteran of WWII and the Korean War, is rolling in his grave.
He and McRino are two peas in a pod.
It doesn't look like you'll have to camp out over night to see Mitt at a book signing.
We have some good, conservative Republicans out there, but they never seem to make these lists: Duncan Hunter comes to mind—but there are others.
