Mitt Romney: The Wrong Man, The Wrong Message, The Wrong Time
All Voices ^ | July 2, 2010 | R.G.Yoho

Posted on 07/25/2010 3:25:32 PM PDT by Clintons-B-Gone

Whenever anyone mentions the 2012 election, inevitably the name of former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney becomes a topic of conversation. And when it comes to polling data, Romney is often seen as a front-runner, forecasted to be stronger than the current occupant of the Oval Office, Barack Obama.

Increasingly, many of those in the Republican Party think Mitt is the GOP’s “go-to” guy in the next election.

I guess you’ll just have to pardon me for failing to drink the Kool-Aid regarding the former governor. I just think it’s about time somebody stated the truth about Gov. Romney.

Mitt Romney is the wrong guy, at the wrong time, carrying the wrong message for America!

I looked up the definition of RINO in the dictionary; they had a picture of Romney.

Why?

This slick prick ought to take a clue from Ceausescu and get out while he's ahead.

Al Sharpton has got a better shot at the nomination.

Although he’s clearly better than Obama,

I submit that at this point Romney would be worse than the Kenyan because he would have a Congress that will not oppose him so much as this Congress is opposing the Marxist-in-Chief.He will maintain the Mussulman's programs and will propose more of his own. He is a proponent of Strong Man history i.e. it is Strong Men who take control who move the tides of history. He will put coarse filters on the tide of sewage, call it rollback, and open new pipes.

It’s complicated, but Mitt’s MA legacy: forced universal healthcare on every MA resident — (get a healthcare plan or pay a fine, up to $10,000, or the state will attach your tax refund, if any, your bank account, and/or slap your sorry butt in jail!) is the stinking albatross around his neck. His Mormon religion was hard for some voters to come to terms with anyway, but MA healthcare mess is the deathknell to his Presidential ambitions — especially in the light of Obamacare, which is modeled after Mitt’s MA plan...only worse.

Exactly. Didn't they learn their lesson with John McCain. (Who's campaign was largely run, not to mention actively sabotaged, by Romney aides?) I mean, what the hell does it take?!?

Norml republicans don't support him. In 2008 he was supposedly the "runner-up" to McCain and yet he dropped out early due to lack of interest. His paltry vote totals were probably the most expensive votes in history. And he has done nothing to advance his chances now.

The MSM keeps pushing RINOS, like Romney and Gingrich, for a reason. The MSM is trying their best to pick the ‘12 GOP POTUS candidates for us, and they are, also, trying to help Obama win re-election, by choosing RINO GOP candidates with problems.

Romney got 4.5 million votes in 2008. Huckabee got 4.1 million votes. McCain got 9.6 million votes. In 2012, where do you think Establishment McCain’s 9.6 million votes are going? Huckabee? Palin? Nope. Those are Romney or Gingrich votes...we can’t be in denial of that...magritte

RomneyCARE neutralizes ObamaCARE.
Romney support of illegals neutralizes Obama's.
Romney's parents of Mexican birth neutralize the Obama absent birth certificate issue.
Romney's destruction of Massachusetts neutralizes Obama's destruction of America.
Romney's destruction of the Mass. Constitution to impose gay marriage neutralizes Obama's destruction of the US Constitution.

And by making the carpetbagging backstabber the candidate,
given that Team Romney attacked Gov Palin during Election 2008 to throw the election to Obama,
most Americans would agree that the GOP would not deserve to win, anyway.

So tell us, is your url in post #27 a scam from Romney? ?????




Mitt RomneyCARE (D, Shapeshifter): "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




Romney (Carpetbagger shapeshifter, 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.
"
(Flip-flop chameleon artiste and Mitt RomneyCARE
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

Maybe (ruminating here) it's just the old Republican "it's Mitt's turn" mentality at work. They've got all these prexy candidates lined up like airliners on a taxiway, and they ignore the flames and columns of black smoke off the end of the runway and just wave the next one forward. "It's Rudy's turn, it's Mitt's turn, it's McCain's turn, it's Lamar Alexander's turn ......" Burn, crash, burn, crash ...... ad nauseam.

It isn't that you lost the race. At least you showed up with a yacht.

Palin? Nope.

Oh, really? Why not? How many people held their noses against the stink and voted for McPain, who'd much rather have voted for Hunter or Thompson or someone else more conservative than "Maverick" Kennedy-Pal RiNO McPain?

How many of McPain's votes showed up only because Palin was on the ticket?

How many more of the conservatives who've been documented as having stayed home on Election Day 2008, would have turned out for a real conservative?

Prove your case. "Nope!" doesn't get it.

In 2012, where do you think Establishment McCain’s 9.6 million votes are going?

I don't accept that as a real figure.

For instance I am one of those 9.6 million McCain primary votes, even though I despise the man, and did so then. I caste my primary vote in Texas, which held it's primary after McCain had already mathematically won the constest. I didn't want to weaken Obama's opponent, even if it was McStain.

I would NEVER, NEVER vote for McCain, or a McCain-like RINO such as Romeny, if there were any other viable conservative choice.

Why?

Read this and it will not puzzle you again.

Democrat elected officials strive to please their voters, Republican elected officials strive to deceive their voters.

Elected officials of both parties share a generally negative opinion of, well, us. Democrats can brag about it, Republicans have to hide it.

Elected officials are, for the most part, either members of, or striving to be members of, the ruling class.

This has created a funny situation - in order to be nominated, Republican candidates have to conceal who they are and what they believe.

Right. Republicans always campaign claiming that they will "cut spending," and sound like conservatives in order to get the nomination. However, almost none of them ever mention the Constitution, or the fact that we need to eliminate, not cut, all programs forbidden by the Constitution. The Republican Party lives solely on the argument that it is less bad than the frankly Socialist Demonrat Party. "Vote for Us! We're Socialism Lite! Lost costly, less fattening!"

Again, LOL...I realize that there's not a ton of political analysis on FR when Romney is mentioned...it's mostly cut-and-paste stuff (No more Rinos!) strictly for inside baseball conservatives only...in the real world, where most people ignore us, Romney has built an establishment network to push him through the primaries...anyone who can't see that is fooling themselves...

Me, I'm a Gingrich guy, which puts me in the lower 5% percentile of FR members I'm sure... would love to see Gingrich debate Obama...magritte
