A whole new Romney for 2012 presidential run (Romney is still a fake RINO poser)
The Los Angeles Times ^ | 2011-03-05 | Paul West

Posted on 03/04/2011 8:45:31 PM PST by rabscuttle385

Washington — Defying his reputation as a 1950s square, the new, more casual Mitt Romney is popping up around the country as he readies a second run for president. He's going tieless on network TV, strolling NASCAR pits in Daytona and sporting skinny Gap jeans bought for him by his wife.

His latest campaign book, just out in paperback, opens with a regular-guy scene: wealthy Mitt in a Wal-Mart checkout line, buying gifts for his grandsons and comparing the surroundings to Target, another discount store he says he's familiar with.

Vote for Mitney!

He can be anybody you want him to be!

He can say anything you want him to say!

Just vote for him because he wants to be President really, really badly.

Did Algore’s “dresser” instruct Mitt on his apparel?

Mitt Romney is a mayonnaise sandwich on white bread...

Romney is a Mormon. At it’s core Mormonism is pure socialism in terms of the interactions of it’s adherents. If you fall on hard times, the Mormon Church will take care of you so long as you give them eveerything you have. Left to their own beliefs, Mormons would practice the “United Order,” which is a form of Socialism run by their leaders. So it’s really no surprise that Romney was (and still is) a supporter of Romneycare and it’s big brother, Obamacare. You can bet that if he were to be elected president, the country would remain with Obamacare without doubt. Reid, Romney, Hatch, all the same kettle of fish. We should no more want Mormons running things that we would any other religious sect.

The GOP will be attracted to the amount of money he’ll spend. Bumper stickers, consultants...a profit to be made even if he loses.

Obama will raise a billion, Romney will raise half that and spend a third that of his own money, and win or lose, people will get rich on the election.

"But with a net worth of at least $190 million, he can always dip into his own pocket."

But - Hey!! He's just a regular-guy. His book features this scene: wealthy Mitt in a Wal-Mart checkout line, buying gifts for his grandsons and comparing the surroundings to Target, another discount store he says he's familiar with.

Might that pocket he can dip into be the skinny Gap jeans bought for him by his wife?

I'm totally insulted by these fakes who think we are stupid enough to buy their fake 'dog & pony' show!!

Has anyone tried to post on the LA Times article? My posting there lasted about 3 minutes and disappeared. It was a very civil statement that Romney wasn’t going to win the nomination and that Palin was.

Are they that touchy about criticism of their boy?

I guess it's lost on Romney's handlers that such is the entire problem with Romney - you get an entirely new Romney every election cycle. No sense of enduring, core values from such a chameleon. With Reagan, you got Reagan. With Romney, you get quicksand.

The ONLY thing NEVER posted about Milt Romney
is what a terrible governor he actually was.

MITT ROMNEY - THE PROVEN BAD GOVERNOR

"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.

President Reagan on the Mexican shapeshifter known as Mitt, Willard, and Milt 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

I think 37 to 40 percent of this nation is solidly conservative but that’s it.

If we had used 2010 to run Tea Party candidates we might have driven the Repukes to really challenge the Demoviks for liberal supremacy in 2012 by running a Romney or Christie or other crypto Dem.

Then, Palin as the Tea Party candidate would have had a VERY REAL chance to win even in blue states as voters went three different ways. Because when 40 percent can win it can even win Cali and NY and other Demovik bastions.

Governing the nation as a Tea Party president might have been difficult for Palin if she did win but at least the chance to build the Tea Party into to FIRST party would have been there...

As it is, we are looking at a Repuke candidate in 2012 like Romney or Christie and NOTHING really gained from 2010 but some seats in the House.

We didn’t go all the way. Even I was opposed to a third party for all the usual reasons. I was wrong about that. We didn’t go all the way. And you know what they say—

No guts, no glory.

If you think about it, the general election in Nov 2012 is likely to be nothing more than a super Demovik primary.
