We Are In A Huge Constitutional Crisis. Could We Layoff The Romney-Bashing For A While?

A Request of Personal Privilege: We Are In A Huge Constitutional Crisis. Could We Layoff The Romney-Bashing For A While?

We are in a huge Constitutional and practical crisis in our country. Obama and the DC Dems are trying to ram Government Socialized medicine through by any way they can, legal or otherwise.

They are doing so for one reason. If they make 51% of the voters dependent on the government, they will be in power forever. This is what they want.

I know Mitt Romney’s positions anger many here, but he will not run for any office foe the next 2 ½ years. Let’s stop the Romney-bashing videos for a while.

Let’s focus on today’s problems, so we will be sure of having an election in 2012.

It would be easier to ignore Romney if he weren’t already campaigning. His face is all over the place.

Quit trying to stifle the conversation, which Romney himself is encouraging, and just avoid what bothers you.

Let’s focus on getting all RINO’s OUT and all RTARD retards=republicans that are really Democrats.

That is quite helpful.

I am sick to death of both parties at this stage. The GOP only grew a spine a little out of fear because we the people spoke up.

Romney is a RTARD

How is it bothering you? Does it eat up a lot of time to scroll past the insert?

Or maybe you just think Romney is a good potential candidate?

Why the objection?

The time for fooling around with RINO’s and marxists who call themselves “Progressives” to hide their marxist agenda (as if that will continue to work forever) is fast coming to a close.

Its a blessed thing that the degenerate slick son of a bitch ROMNEY from a family of cowards is going to try for the GOP nomination because it will once and for all propel a candidate (as yet undetermined) to stop pulling punches and declare WAR ON SOCIALISM.

The candidate must name names, vow to destroy the members of the “Congressional Progressive Caucus” and excoriate geographic areas such as San Francisco and other socialist strongholds as “US AGAINST THEM”

The effin party is over, time to smack down these CPUSA stooges and fellow travelers, put PR mens heads on pikes, and put the fear of God and the sword in the hearts of the ENEMY WITHIN

Romney is 100% on the side of Obama and in fact Romney’s unworkable failed program is one that Obama cites as a model, so I’d say...bash away.

Romney is poison.

___________________________________________________-

Exactly. RomneyCare is the state counterpart of Obamacare right down to the subsidized abortion with the $50 copays.

If Romney wanted conservatives to “lay off him” he should have thought about that before he jammed the monstrosity of RomneyCare down the throats of the Massachusetts citizenry.

Mitt Romney (Backstabbing Democrat shapeshifter):
You shall let me destroy America and its freedoms
and Consititution as I did in the slave state of Massachusetts.

"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."
[Cato Institute annual Fiscal Policy Report Card - America's Governors, 2004.]


“The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.

The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.”
- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006


"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
“Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,”

[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006


"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced
,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."
- Boston Globe 7/25/2005


Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys.
He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."
- U.S. Senate testimony by Gov. Mitt Romney, 6/22/2004 P>


"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!

Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

We Are In A Huge Constitutional Crisis. Could We Layoff The Romney-Bashing For A While?

No. Anyone who has approved the usurpation of power by the State in the past is part of the foundation laid for the present crisis.

I do not care what party they are from, I do not care what state they are from, I do not even care where they were born. If they aren't going to stand up for our Constitution, then they have already dropped the ball.

It is liberal-lite which has helped get us here, by watering down any resistance to the Socialist's agenda.

I will not lay off Romney until he is no longer a threat to become the GOP nominee.

Romney is just as much of a threat as Obama. Worse, in fact, because a socialized medicine plan could actually PASS under a Romney administration.

Romney refused to drop out in the last election, even when it was clear he had done poorly in the Northeast and would do even worse in the South.

But Romney split the vote, so that we ended up with McCain as the front runner. And McCain couldn’t beat Obama.

If Romney had dropped out instead of visciously attacking the more conservative candidates, Obama might not have won and we might not have had a constitutional crisis.

Today's crisis was brought to us by TEAM ROMNEY.


Mitt RomneyCARE (D, RINO): "I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(Backstabber Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn’t make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan





Mitt RomneyCARE (D, RINO): ”I'm very clear I think, to the people across the Commonwealth
my "R" didn't stand so much for Republican as it does for reform.
"
(Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
 which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."

--  President Ronald Reagan

“Romney is 100% on the side of Obama”

I am no Romney fan but that is an absurd statement. Romney care is a disaster no question but to say on every issue Romney and Obama are the same is clearly false. Romney would be a far better steward of the economy. I DO NOT want Romney as the nominee but this hatred against him and equating him to Obama is lunatic behaviour and makes us look like fringe kooks.

I’m not as rough on Romney as some here ... but I fail to see how this board could be any more focused on the crisis to which you refer. It is virtually the sole topic of conversation 24/7. Even unrelated random threads will have Obama/healthcare related comments.

If the minimal time/ space devoted to Romney around here were refocused on Obama, I think things would pretty much be the same as they are right now.

If you don’t like the Romney discussion, don’t participate.
