Somebody is smoking crack.
Good grief - Myth keeps digging his hole deeper. Just how smart is he...really? (see my tagline)
..these people are so completely out of touch with conservatives.
Are these people oblivious to the reason the Tea Party formed separate from the GOP? Hint: one of its primary inspirations was a RINO who supported TARP/Bailout, sponsored McCain-Feingold, and supports amnesty for illegal aliens who enter our country illegally.
More likely, they’re just lying as usual to try to weaken this patriotic movement.
Sorry, that ship has already sailed... nobody will be waiting at the docks for the dumb old bastard. Mitt, what the hell you been drinkin’ man.
The rinos know they are being hunted and are circling the wagons. McCain will repay the favor and support Romney for president. Where will this leave Palin?
On Palin: never forget, Newt, Buchannon, Bob Barr, Lindsey Graham, and Bill Oreilly were all heroes on FR at one time or another. The movement is bigger than one person and sometimes even heroes can stray.
McCain burned that bridge and mined the approaches.
Tancredo endorsed Romney
DeMint endorsed Romney
Pawlenty endorsed McCain
Thompson endorsed McCain
Newt endorsed Scozzafava
Santorum endorsed Specter
Rubio endorsed Huckabee
Santorum endorsed Romney

“In a blow to Hayworth, AZ. ‘tea’ partiers don't endorse him.”
One of my favorite McCain lines is that we have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency. J. D. Hayworth should put out an ad with that clip from McCain.
IOW, Romney, like McLame, wants the support of Tea Party citizens, but also expects to be free to poke his finger in their eyes when that suits him.
I think that they think, that if they say it, it will somehow materialize, kinda like a Pentecostal mind set where “by faith, you name it then claim it”. Is this what is called whistling past the graveyard?
Sounds like a plan....to ruin the Tea Parties.
I am sure they will fall in love after he calls them xenophobes and bigots for not wanting amnesty.
That Romney is a real joker.
When pigs fly.
It’s a race to the bottom between the GOP establishment and the Pelosi/Reid/Obama cabal.
Romney is really a moron.
Thanks in large part to the Tea Party movement, we can be certain that in 2012 there will be no Romney, Huckabee, McCain, (or even Palin for that matter) on the Republican ticket. The race is wide open and youth and a new face will have their day.
If the Tea Party people won’t become a total farce, then supporting Juan McCain is a great way to accomplish that. Nothing other than Obamacare would cost more than passing Juan’s amnesty and cap and trade schemes which he has advocated for several years.
The more Romney or anyone else supporting Juan tries to relate their support to what Juan has supported and advocated over the years, the more ridiculous they will look. Juan is NO deficit hawk, and his constant whining about the $20 billion or so in annual earmarks is one of the cheapest applause lines around. Eliminating 100% of that would barely even be noticed in our almost $4 trillion dollar budget and $1.6 trillion projected deficit for 2010.
RIGHT NOW is the time to hunt the RINO.
It’s open season, so lock and load, boys and girls.
The ones we fail to get this Spring not fail to stab us in the back ‘come Fall!
Romney’s whistling past the graveyard that contains McCain’s political bones.
RINOs know they are an endangered species.
"I have to tell you, [Obama] is a decent person, a person that you
do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States."
U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, 10 OCT. 2008
Given lord McCain voted against the permanency of the Bush tax cuts, I wish JD would start asking lord McCain where he stands now on tax cuts. And why lord McCain is not raising cain in the Senate to keep these tax cuts intact. Lord McCain's liberal claim he was against 'earmarks' or excessive spending just won't hold up in still being against making those tax cuts permanent. JD could hammer him day and night over his liberal economic views.
Bailout Juan? That lion is toothless. Congress made Captain Sullenberger retire at age 65. If only McCain were an airline pilot.
Exactly my thought too.
This term 'lion' (or is it 'lyin'?) is familiar though. I know that I've heard it before on FR on Mitt threads. Maybe ejonesie22 or diogenesis can help me with my memory?
Sam Axe, on Burn Notice...
Yeah that's him!! LOL
Romney praises Obama
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney praised President Obama
at a GOP fundraising dinner Wednesday ..
"I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."
These people are the establishment GOP picks. You have to listen to them and support them! If you don’t do what the establishment GOP says, you’re a hate-America-firster, a truther, a birther, a connoisseur of child-love, and a closeted homosexual who wants Islam to rule the world!
Wait, I probably need to say that’s sarcasm, because I’ve seen that argument many times on FreeRepublic.
(You knew this was coming)
But I see 2012 as a time when our enemies (foreign and domestic) have made substantial gains and our leaders will need to possess honed and specialized skill-sets to combat those gains. That is why I would like to see the ticket of Petraeus and L.Cheney with Amb. Bolton as SoS.
John McCain is in a quandary. Before, his rich wife would just buy his seat. Nobody would run against him because the AZ Republican party doesn’t stake its candidates. But J.D. Hayworth has the reputation and name recognition to neutralize most of McCain’s wife’s money advantage.
Plus, a lot of people in AZ don’t like that RINO, and for once have a choice to vote for anyone else.
Just ONE MORE INDICATION that “Mitt” has lost touch with reality.
Talk about an empty suit.
RINOs are antoher problem. Boot them to the curb
McCain’s amnesty position is just great for our government budgets, isn’t it?
What’s specious about Romney and Palin’s argument that we need McCain’s clout fighting health care is that what is at stake is not his doubling down conservatively right now, while he’s in campaign mode—but from 2011 on, when the balance in both the House and the Senate will be much more favorable—and McCain is certain to go back to his RINO ways.
I’m starting to think that political insiders have dirt on Hayworth beyond that which we know about—otherwise the list of McCain endorsers is just too hard to fathom.
I’d like Mitt if I could trust him to run the government like he ran Bain Capital. The problem is that he opens his mouth, which proves he’s a politician.
Something about his creeps me out. The visual feed does not match the audio feed.
“Let me see the Carfax, Mitt”
So RINO Romney want s the Tea Party destroyed, dismantled, taken over, controlled, micro managed ???
“Romney is chuggin the bong water. “
“Romney, you IGNORANT SLUT!!”
Mitt Romney (Backstabbing Democrat shapeshifter):
Coronate me and let me destroy American freedom, your right to vote,
and the US Constitution, just as I did to the servants 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."

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."

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."

"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.

Well good for him. But him supporting Romney never changed my opinion about him (as much as I loathe Romney).
Romney is a foppish prat.
