Posted on 11/14/2011 10:54:18 AM PST by Jim Robinson
The GOP establishment elite lining up behind Mitt Romney are either tone deaf or brain dead. They've totally misread the mood of the American people. We the people are fed up with smooth-talking, two-faced, flip-flopping, business as usual big government political whoring and are not going to take it anymore!!
McCain suspended his campaign in 2008 to rush back to Washington to save the world from the great economic collapse that would usher in the Great Depression II. Instead, he delivered America to the Marxist B. Hussein Obama who's ushering in the wholesale wanton destruction of America as a free country.
TARP. The bailouts. The taking of the car companies and giving them to the unions. The Porkulus stimulus package. ObamaCare. Obama's ridiculous war against coal, oil and gas, manufacturing and industry, and against capitalism and freedom itself. The idiotic federal push for a "green economy." The trampling of the constitution. The corruption. The crony capitalism. Big government. Big spending. Big borrowing. Big taxing. DC ramming it down the throats of the American people, despite our protests.
How soon Rove, Krauthammer and the elite GOP ruling class forget. But we are not stupid and we have not forgotten. These are the reasons we the people have risen up against the political class. We the TEA party have protested and rallied in every state and city during the last three years and our rebellion produced sweeping results in the 2010 congressional elections and in local and state governments all across the land.
We have an open rebellion brewing while the GOP fiddles. We're not talking about rearranging the deck chairs or fussing with the details. We're talking about a complete sweep of business as usual scum bucket politicians and their intrusive, oppressive, unelected, unaccountable, unconstitutional federal bureaucracy. We're going to continue building our tea party majority in the House and we're going to take the Senate. And if the GOP leadership gets out of the way, we're going to take the White House. Follow the lead of the GOP and we lose to Obama.
For starters, our goals are to repeal ObamaCare. Repeal Obama! Throw out or flatten the income tax. Privatize social security and medicare. Repeal Dodd-Frank. Shutter the EPA. Repeal the regulations that are killing our economy. Shutter the Commerce dept. Shutter the Education dept. Shutter the Energy dept. Shutter freddie and fannie. Shutter health, education and welfare. Get a handle on the Fed. Secure our borders! Reinstate the constitutional restrictions and limitations on government. Enforce the Tenth Amendment. Return health, education, housing, banking, welfare and all other functions not expressly delegated to the federal government by the constitution to the states and the people. Get the federal government out of our local affairs, out of our business, out of our schools, out of our churches, off our backs and out of our faces!! Set our people free to produce, prosper and live freely as God and our founders intended!!
Romney, as chief-architect and advocate of RomneyCare which directly led to ObamaCare, is not the one to lead this rebellion. Romney swears by TARP, the bailouts, the stimulus packages. Romney lives for BIG government. Look at his record. He still brags today about his anti-liberty, anti-free economy, big government mandated, RomneyCare for Pete's sake. Romney is not the kind of guy who will sweep out the intrusive federal government and shutter entire departments and agencies. He'll do nothing to upset the federal gravy trains of the progressive income tax, medicare, freddie, fannie, banking, the Fed, the EPA, the endless tax laws and regulations and the myriad of corrupt, overbearing, unconstitutional federal ABC departments and agencies that are killing our economy and oppressing our freedoms.
Romney is the establishment's anti-Reagan, anti-tea party, smooth talking, good hair, don't rock the boat, big government guy.
"I was an independent during Reagan Bush. I'm not returning to Reagan-Bush!" --Mitt Romney (angrily)
"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government IS the problem." --Ronald Reagan
Conversely, Romney openly declares that only government can solve our problems.
No business as usual progressive RINOs!! No Romney!! No way!!
Long live the TEA party rebellion!!
Long live our free Republic!!
Preach it, Jim!
NO Romney, No Way!
No GOP-E either!
> they don’t call them stupid party for nothing!!
Actually, they are not stupid at all.
The Republican elite are one-worlder, totalitarian-statists, just like the DemonRAT elite.
The only difference is that the DemonRATS are communists and the Republicans are fascists.
For the hoi-poloi, like you and me, this is a distinction without a difference. The end result is basically the same for us.
As far as I know Jim Romney isn’t winning in Iowa. Most of the rank and file are conservative and not voting for him.
Isn’t it kind of inherent that the “GOP elite” would be “elitists”?
And being elitists, they would believe that only those “in the club” should be allowed in positions of power.
So, it’s not so much that they are “stupid” as they are just acting true to form. “A tiger’s a tiger” as Rush would say.
They brother in law with the Democrats and get our guy[s] off the ballot and then launch into the battlcry,"It is our guy or the Democrat."
I, myself , played that game for the last time in 2008.
If the Republican is a Conservative, I vote for him/her. If not, I don't vote for him/ her. No more of this crap of, he's/ she's better than the Democrat.
They are not only pushing Romney, they are now pushing Gingrich to run interference for Romney, and many folks on FR are helping them do just that.
No romney! No way! No how! Never!
Well said Jim, the people are not stupid,and are done with being trampled on by the Washingtonians from both parties.
Myth Romney is nothing more than Chairman Obama with big hair and legit birth certificate. I’d rather have another stroke than vote for him. Tokyo Rove and the rest of his ilk can go pound sand.
NO COMPROMISE! NO RETREAT! NO SURRENDER!
The elites believe in what the media spouts and for the gravy train of government spending. If Romney gets nominated, the press will suddenly discover that he is a Mormon and what a dangerous cult it is with polygamy, etc. Obama will be reelected in a landslide.
That's tagline material right there.
We don’t call the GOP the Stupid Party because they are smart! Like Duh!
Romney is Dole-McCain 3.0
Please link me to something supports that proposition, or if you like make the case your self, thanks.
My own two eyes - have you not been watching how the media is suddenly all ga-ga over Gingrich?
Here’s what we’ll be hearing for the next year if Rove, Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, and the rest of the Republicrats select Romney as the nominee (funny how they bury their heads in the sand to this):
“After a Romney Deal, Profits and Then Layoffs”
1,700 US workers laid off after Romney-approved deal... Herman Cain, OTOH, grew business and hired thousands.
Let the Rove types push this loserall they want, it isn’t working. 75% of the base wants nothing to do with him. The Elites don’t hold the persuasive power they once had and that is a good thing.
I don’t believe the GOP elites are ‘pushing’ Newt - I believe they hate him and turned on him in 1999. Newt is the true maverick. The GOP establishment only pushes one ‘it’s his turn’ not two.
If, heaven forbid, the MSM is successful in demonizing Herman - Newt will be better than Romney.
As of now - most polls show 75-82 percent of likely GOP voters don’t want Romney.
I suggest “Nixon-Ford-Dole-McCain 5.0”
Wait till the MSM starts covering the racist past of Mormonism. Romney will be the devil trying to destroy the black man. He will be toast.
I used to think that but after doing some research, I’m not so sure. I honestly would be really nervous with either one at this point.
I’m praying it doesn’t come to that!
The non-RINO/non-Romney sentiment is 77% among GOP voters.
RINO = Romney + Huntsman + Johnson = 23%
Non-RINO = Cain + Gingrich + Perry + Paul + Bachman + Santorum = 77%
The non-RINO’s are NOT perfect conservatives, none of them. But we MUST reject the candidates of the elitists and the MSM: Romney, Huntsman, & Johnson
RINOcerous cancer rots the brain.
My mom actually bought me this book for my birthday.
We are no longer on speaking terms.
And atrophies the spinal cord. Ugly stuff.
I posted two weeks ago about the msm pushing Gingrich 24/7 and going right along were the ‘conservative’ pundits. EVERYTHING was Gingrich, worth a second look; Gingrich, the smartest man in the room; Gingrich the only one with real solutions; Gingrich....
Sorry. Been there, done that.
Reagan Conservatism is dead.
Manmade global warming.
Scozzafava, which he NEVER apologized for.
Ryan’s right wing socialism.
Buys his wife off with expensive jewelry and luxury cruises...using campaign funds.
And oh, so much more...
That’s a crock.
I was going to order you to take Ron Paul out of the equation, but I like the math better leaving him in;) LOL!!
Cannot see any Paulbots voting for Romney - but where do you believe they will shake out?
When the RINOs talk about needing people with government experience to run for President then ask them why when the survival of Italy is in the balance they picked a non politician to run the country. Mario Monti. Cain for now.
Newt Gingrich is the CONSUMMATE insider politician. Every dem on Capitol Hill is his buddy. He trashed the TEA Party for being too purist. Good Lord.
People don't call it the Stupid Party for no reason.
**He trashed the TEA Party for being too purist**.
“The GOP establishment elite lining up behind Mitt Romney are either tone deaf or brain dead.”
I respectfully disagree. The GOP nomenklatura are very informed and deliberate in what they do. They are frauds, dissemblers and quislings with regard to their espoused ‘conservative values’. The GOP machine differs from the Democrat machine about as much as the Mensheviks differed from the Bolsheviks. A difference of degree, not of kind.
For the most part we are stuck with them this cycle, but eventually there will be a separation.
Nice to see the MSM reporting the truth for a change ;)
The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.

Bad priorities my friend. One day your mother will be gone, and you will wish with all your heart you could speak with her, and you won’t be able to. If this is all that is between you, resume contact and agree to disagree on this point. Someone like that suet pudding “The Arsonist” is not worth breaking family ties over.
Exactly and brilliantly stated!
Karl’s been spending time at the buffet bar a bit much, it seems.. He’s become his GrandOldDad’sParty Poster Boy. (no offense intended)
And oyu can rest assured they will push harder the closer we get to the Primaries. They aren’t even close to being done. And you can rest assured that they are the ones who have orchestrated the Cain take down. And while no way I’ll vote for scummy Newt, he better watch his back because he is next.
LOL, there was a time not so long ago that Rove & Bush could do not wrong, just like Scott Brown of MA. In the end most of the folks here get snookered by the sales pitch from grossly dishonest pols. Even now the line up for the GOP is worthless. It makes no diff anymore which party is in power, the results are the same. Unless folks get off their duffs our liberties will be a thing of the past.
