Skip to comments.GOP's Mitt Romney, a potential presidential candidate, unveils a book critical of Obama
Posted on 03/02/2010 5:50:05 PM PST by cajuncow
BOSTON (Associated Press) -- Once and possibly future Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney says in a new book that President Barack Obama's international outreach efforts during his first year in office have been "kindling" to the "anti-American fires burning all across the globe."
In a wide-ranging policy book none-too-subtly titled "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," Romney says the Democrat's efforts to reconcile with foreign powers, Muslims and others angered by President George W. Bush's administration have weakened the country's stature instead of enhancing it.

I WILL NEVER vote for Romney, NEVER!
Once again, Romney is late to the party. Obama’s apologies are old hat, but Romney now wants to take credit for the criticism.
What’s next the Romney sequel, “No bowing”?
Don't run, Willard; you're not wanted.
I will be buying his book.
I’ve been reading it’s very substantive.
You may as well be on his payroll.,
No, I just call it as I see it.
I try to be objective and not to stretch things or read what’s not there.
Interesting....considering your apparent blind following of Romney.
I’m so glad that Palin’s (supposedly policy book) is coming out after Mittens....It will erase a lot out of our minds.
I do not follow anyone blindly.
I have very good reasons for those I support, just like you.
look at these canned customer reviews.
I don't expect to change your mind.
I held my nose and voted for McCain.
Those days are over. If the RNC can’t put up a decent conservative candidate they won’t get my vote.
I won’t stay home, but I won’t vote for another RINO.
Mitt can write a book critical of his mother if he wants to. How many times must we say we will not vote for him before he gets the message.
Like I said, I have a reason for whom I support.
And right now, I believe that we need someone with both business and political experience in the White House.
I also believe it’s critical at this point.
Best to you as well.
You assume she isn't?
I wouldn't vote for Romney for anything, ever, even if he did pay me.
I work for attorneys.
That’s the only payroll that I’m on.
Has he made payroll...actually RUN a business?
Tell me about his political experience....Was it right of center, or left of center?
Business does not run on it's own — it needs capital.
I work for attorneys who put these types of deals together, and it just amazes me.
Who cares - just a political puppet show for the ‘political sport fans’!
America will NEVER forget what Mitt RomneyCARE and the MSM did.
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."
Kathleen Parker: "[I]t is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem." "Parker ... says something publicly that many of us have thought privately
but lacked the courage to say out loud - Palin should step down:"
"Parker: Romney raised bar on freedoms"
Kathleen Parker: "If Kennedy's speech was an important landmark in American political history,
Romney's was surpassing. With heartfelt humility and poetic eloquence,
he tracked the nation's struggle with and for freedom."
Poor sport spoiler Romney attacked other GOP candidates:
"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."
[Romney: A Mistake for McCain, 7/23/2008, Dick Morris]
No to Mitt... Never!
Aside: It astounds me that no pundit or pol has spoken out on the eerie similarity of our nation today and as it was in the last decade of the 18 century. Thomas Jefferson, and the republicans, voiced very like protestations, of federal usurpation of power from the States and disregard for our Constitution, that we hear presently.
IF, the RNC decides that it's Romney's "turn"....IMO, you will see a near historic cry against the RNC..and it's leadership.
If you want total chaos in the GOP in this country...then continue to support the old GOP guard.
I don't know who should run at this point...but I know it's not McCain, Romney, Pawlenty, Huckaby or Jeb Bush.
Great..me too. But that doesn't say he's got real business experience...Making payroll, hiring, firing...etc.
In fact...Mr. Romney has some experience at taking businesses down...Now isn't that right?
Maybe I'm wrong.......
He was the CO-FOUNDER of Bain Capital.
Please point out the specific “pretty rude comments”.
Mit Rumney, surefire way for a Obammy second term.
This guy I cannot even consider holding my nose to vote for and I personally WON’T
So answer the questions.........
You know Romney’s scheme.
The workers lost their health insurance in Romney
taxovers, so then predator parasite Mitt RomneyCARE
imposed RomneyCARE (=ObamaCARE) so the taxpayers
would have to pay for the “rape” of the companies
which Romney took into his own pocket.
Romney and Obama should be indicted under RICO.
What a refreshing change it would be for some freeper to buy the book, read the whole thing, and actually talk about the ideas presented in the book in a factual and reasonable way, pro and con, rather than, well, rather than what you already see going on.
Astonishing! Too bad I could not care less about Mitt Romney or anything he has to say. Typical GOP trash.
Because I know that would be very interesting to hear....
Feck off. I’m not playing your sophomoric games.
“Romney’s 323-page tome is less personality-driven than Palin’s book”
That is good to hear. If Willard’s book was “personality-driven”, it would be 323 blank pages.
Nina Easton helped Romney with book (No fact checks by AP)
Nina Easton, Fortune's Washington bureau chief and a Fox News regular, helped out Mitt
Romney on his new book that hits shelves today, "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness." That's according to the book's acknowledgements, where Romney writes she
"advised me on ways to make the message of what I had written more clear and
Should a political analyst and journalist be helping out a former (and future?) presidential candidate with his book? Boston Globe correspondent Sasha Issenberg reached out to
Easton and looked at whether there's any conflict given her role as political analyst, along
with the fact that her husband Russ Schrifer worked on Romney's campaign.
Well bless your little heart....
I'm obviously over matched here...
What get to me is how the media treats this rino. With kid gloves! Once again, trying to impose their candidate on us conservatives.
Rather than attack freerepublic, why not just make your sales pitch for Romney.
I just wish he’d go away. Even Nobama could beat him in ‘012.
I’ll get you started:
Straight from the source:
If Obama was coming out with a book....would you be saying the same thing?
Funny...how that's a repeating MO with you and others that defend Romney.
