Mitt Romney On The Contract With America (Romney Bashed It)
YouTube ^ | 5/14/2007 | romneyrecord

Posted on 06/16/2011 9:53:33 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

"Um, let me tell you in my view it is not a good idea to go into a contract like was organized by the Republican party in Washington laying out a whole series of things which the party said these are the things we are gonna do. I think that's a mistake. I think instead that if you wanna get something done in Washington you don't end up picking teams with Republicans on one side snd Democrats on the other entering into a contract and saying ok were all gonna do this and if course then that works then the other side feels like they are the loser, but if it wins they feel like they are the winner. I don't like winners or losers in Washington..."

This is from the Senate debate, Oct. 27, 1994.

BTW, why should anyone run with a D or R next to their name according to Romney's thinking or have party platforms that voters can look at?

Again, why should Democrats or Republicans even bother laying out specifics within party platforms and the like? That way you can be like Mitt and say that you are both for and against a federal individual mandate (1994 compared with now) and do the same with the issues of homosexual marriage and abortion (and many other issues as well). That’s why he is against contracts with voters.

“I don’t like winners or losers in Washington...”

Then for Mittens’ sake (and ours) I hope he loses BEFORE getting to Washington.

He is a man with no principles.

He is one of those Postmoderns who think the highest principle is “tolerance”. That supersedes all other virtues....and the only thing that is not tolerated is intolerance (which are people with virtue who won’t cave into evil). He thinks it is “good” to cave into evil ideas....to “get along”.

We used to think that those who would negotiate with the devil were evil. They still are...but Romney thinks it is good to compromise with the devil.

It comes from cultural Marxism....and Romney is a Marxist...just not as hard core as zero and he tries to hide it.

Mitt Romney: "I'm not a partisan politician. My hope is that, after this election, it will be the moderates of both parties who will control the Senate, not the Jesse Helmses."

That is because they know that Obama is toast and Romney is really nothing more or less than a very pale version of Obama.

A vote for Mitt is a vote for Socialism. It will be disguised as an economic recovery where we sell our national soul to globalism. We will see an economic recovery but it will come at the price of our liberty.

Mitt could not get my families vote if he were running against Satan. It's why the LSM want him as our candidate.

Obama is beatable in this upcoming election. The media knows this. Hell, Howard Dean knows this. So the media wants the American people to settle between choosing the black Obama or the white Obama. The American people need to rise up and stop allowing the media to pick the presidents.

Romney is a RINO all the way. Everyone knows that.

Obama (Osama) is a radical socialist all the way. Every knows that.

Who can beat Obama? I am still praying for a “conservative” rock star that emerges that actually can beat the Socialist.

Otherwise, we either end up with Rino or Socialist.

The dust has not settled. The children are still fist fighting on the playground. Let the children play a little longer. The teacher will be out soon. When it is over Sarah will send the brawlers home (esp Romney and Bachman) with bloodied noses running and crying to their mothers.

“black Obama or the white Obama”

My kids asked me who Romney was. I said something like “He’s just like Obama - except he’s a white guy.” My 13-year old daughter almost laughed a noodle up her nose!

Romney is a social climber, grovelling for approval. He’s a lib , because, like B.O. , he is made of jello when it comes to integrity. He has the values of a nebulous cloud. Romney is the worst kind of politician, the I kno embodyment of the say anything hypocrite stereotype that we were always warned not to trust. As for McCain, he’s a senile old puppet how in the world are rhinos like these even entertained as members of the GOP? How does the party go from Lincoln to Reagan to Huntsman? Thankfully the country is really starting to rise from its slumbering ignorance about the proper role of minimalist govt and the case justification and cause of free market economics - hopefully once and for all if we really double up on or efforts and focus now on spreading American principles from campuses in the west coast all the way to the east. Socialists think America should transform but they must look in the mirror first before they demand one more iota of the destructive change that they continue to degrade this great nation and people with. I think the currentbrepublican lineup is very good very strong. Gov Perry, Sen santorum, Herman Cain, Tim pawlenty, Sarah Palin Scott walker Chris christie! These are real leaders. Real republicans. They know the score just like president Reagan did.

If the GOP can get it right the rest of the country can get it right. How many times can this country fall for it the socialist trap of keynsianism? FDR Carter Obama - that’s three strikes!

Also, I really believe Sen. McCain may be going senile, this YouTube video I found while checking out your link on Romney has convinced me that there is a strong possibility of that. Look up “McCain’s YouTube Problem Just Became a Nightmare” posted by some libs called bravenewfilms. In rinos and other libs we keep finding weak minds and weak characters. So the question is what came first the chicken or the egg, socialism or mediocrity? Socialism fosters mediocrity but it goes the other way too.
