Sarah Palin circles around olí Mitt Romney
Boston Herald ^ | November 30, 2010 | Hillary Chabot

Posted on 11/29/2010 10:11:37 PM PST by GQuagmire

Former Bay State Gov. Mitt Romney is looking to recapture the limelight from pop culture and new media megastar Sarah Palin when he sits down with “Tonight Show” retread Jay Leno tomorrow night in a move some GOP observers dismiss as straight out of TV’s dark ages.

“On the hipness scale, this is far from Bristol Palin on ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ It’s more like Richard Nixon on ‘Laugh In,’ ” scoffed Democratic consultant Scott Ferson.

“He’s trying to make sure people don’t forget him,” said John Feehery, a Republican consultant based in Washington D.C.

Good luck with that Mitt.

I saw this article...didn't have the energy to post it. Thank you for doing so.

Mittens has got to be on LSD. Who the hell is going to vote for the father of RomneyCare, which was the predecessor of ObamaCare?

Is there some type of tax advantage that pissing your money away in a presidential campaign has over say, buying copious amounts of heroin, coke and crack?

What a putz...

“Does he need to do a reality show? I don’t think so,” said Cellucci, a longtime Romney supporter. “The times are going to make Romney look really good. We’re in a time when jobs aren’t being created — that plays right to his strengths.”

Is Romney Planning to Bypass Iowa?

“Romney’s decision to drain funds from his Iowa PAC sends a signal that he could very well bypass the Iowa caucuses in 2012 ... If Romney was planning on another Iowa caucus campaign, keeping funds in his state PAC would have allowed him to set up an early Iowa organization like he did in 2006.

Adding to the speculation that Romney might opt to skip the Iowa caucuses in 2012 are recent comments from one of his former advisors, David Kochel, an Iowa native.”

If we don’t somehow figure out a way to close the New Hampshire primary to Republicans ONLY, we could well wind up with Mittens as our nominee.

Job creation is a Romney strength?

Sorry, I missed his plan(s)/theories for jobs creation...In fact, Ive never heard him say anything uplifting or of substance...seriously.

Who? Why Democrats, in the OPEN New Hampshire primary, of course.

There has got to be some way of changing the rules on that before 2012. If not, we get whoever the Democrats pick for us.

Actually Hamilton is hilarious. I heard him tell a story about driving a strange woman from NY to CA...or at least part way...because a producer told him this woman - supposedly a relative of the producer - needed the ride. Turned out it was all a joke. I can see why he’d be a great dinner guest.

At least Nixon on Laugh-in was newsworthy and unique. Myth on Leno is going to do nothing to spark interest unless he says he likes young boys. We heard all his canned jokes and pap the last run. He is a dud and a bore and the people he should be energizing don't watch that crap.

By the way, what happened to lying low until next year. That's what your staff floated last week.

Remember how jealous Mitt Romney was when Gov. Palin
went on the Jay Leno show?

Mitt Romney actually went on Letterman
(jealously choosing the same night as Gov. Palin on Leno,
and after Letterman attacked Gov. Palin’s daughters!



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

Gov. Palin: "Let's work together for America"

Bastard Romney: "Someone give me a knife. Do your duty to me."


Romney has thrown Elections 2008 and 2010 to the DNC when he can.

In 2008, the McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts. in some polls, days prior to the election.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney once again
had his backstabbing TeamROMNEY
attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008 to the DNC.


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."


"Frum was indeed a critic of Palin, calling her nomination a "huge mistake" during an October 13 (2008, weeks before the election) Early Show appearance."


David Frum: "Two of our most plausible candidates for president in 2012 are leading Mormons: Mitt Romney and Utah governor Jon Huntsman."


David Frum: "I have a lot of regard for Mitt Romney as a man and politician… I will support him without qualm."


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:"


"Kathleen Parker: After Interviews, Palin Should Bow Out"


Kathleen Parker: "Romney would bring more than squeaky clean qualifications
and youthful good looks to the ticket.
Romney would seem a logical choice."


"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."


Staggering bigotry of Kathleen Parker - UPDATED"


Who benefits most from Sanford meltdown? Californian (that's right) Mitt Romney


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Perpetual backstabber Romney has a HISTORY of lying about endorsements
and making up FAKE ENDORSEMENTS.

Typical Romney falsehood: "I also was pleased to have the support of the NRA when I ran for governor."

Typical Romney falsehood: "I told you what my position was, and what I, what I did as governor; the fact that I received the endorsement of the NRA."

The truth:

Romney: "“That’s not going to make me the hero of the NRA
Boston Herald (1994)

Romney: " “I don’t line up with the NRA.
Boston Globe, January 14, 2007



More Truth about Romney faking endorsements:

"Behind the empty gestures and deceptive rhetoric, Romney was not pro-life
or a defender of marriage by any stretch of the imagination.
He was a disaster," said O'Gorman, of the board for Massachusetts Citizens for Life.
He said Romney "deceptively" claims to have been awarded
a pro-life award from the group.

"The award Romney arranged for himself with the local Pioneer Valley Chapter
was the Mullins Award for Political Leadership, not a pro-life award
and not approved by MCFL's state board of directors," he said.
"We're blowing the whistle to warn voters…
"

[Family leaders call Romney 'disaster' - Letter criticizes 'deceptive rhetoric' around candidate]


Myth Romney, plagiarist, taking credit for Duncan Hunter's fence, without attribution.

Ah, yes, Nixon on Laugh-In....part of the shtick was Nixon’s, uh, complete lack of youthful with-it-ness. Despite his pitiful delivery, it worked because it was so absurd. Mitt on Leno? *yawn* He’s just another slick politician trying to use the talk-show circuit.
