The day the tea party embraces Mitt Romney is the day the tea party accepts defeat
Vanity | Dec 17, 2012 | Jim Robinson

First there was the Reagan Revolution, then Newt's Republican Revolution, and now the Tea Party Revolution.

In each successive revolution, the lovers of liberty threw off a bit more of the yoke of the oppressive ruling class to reestablish some vital part of our God given liberty and freedom.

Pro-life, small government, big defense Ronald Reagan set and accomplished the goal of bringing down the socialist Soviet Union as a threat to the world and reestablished free America as the dominate superpower. He rescued America from the hapless Jimmy Carter who had dragged the nation down into to the depths of despair. Reagan taught us that our best years were indeed yet to come. He reinvigorated our economy by reducing government regulations and taxes and created a free market environment ripe for capitalism to flourish. A lover of life and freedom, he fought off the socialists and merchants of doom and death at every turn and sparked the beginning of the decades long Reagan Economy. He was a champion of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and he delivered us from evil.

Pro-life, small government, big defense Reaganite, Newt Gingrich, set and accomplished the major goal of wresting the congressional majority away from the socialist Democrats who had held it for forty years. His conservative Republican Revolution cut the taxes, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut unemployment, blocked President Clinton's progressive agenda, blocked HillaryCare, reformed welfare, defended life, and balanced the budget four years running, ensuring that the Reagan Economy flourished and stretched throughout his term and beyond.

Mitt Romney set goals of protecting and sustaining abortion as safe and legal in America. He sought to be more radical than Ted Kennedy in respects to "gay rights." He swore to defend Massachusetts' strict gun-control laws that "kept us safe" and promised not to chip away at them. He set and accomplished the goal of bringing big government healthcare solutions to his state and mandating that all formerly free citizens must purchase a government approved product or suffer a tax penalty. He loves mandates against the people.

He stated that he was an independent during Reagan-Bush and he was not returning to Reagan-Bush. And he didn't. Instead, he delivered taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun-control, socialized healthcare, busted budgets, ruined economy, liberal activist judges and a destroyed Republican label.

Romney was and is demonstrably per record an anti-Reagan, pro-big government, pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-gun-control, anti-liberty, pro-socialist healthcare, mandate-loving, liberal judge appointing, budget busting progressive.

He is without a doubt the exact opposite of Reagan, Gingrich, the Reagan Revolution, the Republican Revolution and the Tea Party Revolution.

If the Tea Party now embraces Romney, it will have accepted defeat and surrendered to the ruling class.

There is a reason why the elite establishment GOPers are pushing the anti-Reagan Romney and rejecting the pro-life, Reaganite Newt Gingrich. And I guarantee you, it's not in the best interest of the Tea Party or the Liberty we seek.

Not on my watch!! No Romney, no way!!

Rebellion is brewing!!

If the Republican Party does not nominate a conservative candidate, then I believe the Tea Party will have to run for the election as a third party with its own candidate, also as a punishment against Republican Party for going Rhino, even that would mean split votes. In other words, Republican Party needs a change from pressure outside with warnings that Tea Party will stab in the back as a kamikaze in the election if the Republican Party nominates a unpatriotic leftist. Even that means defeat for the Republican Party, the stab from the back with split votes and less seats will force the party never again to nominate a Rhino candidate running for president. The Tea Party may not have a chance as third party, but it may still defeat the liberals within the Republican Party to clear the path for 2016. We must get rid of the liberal congressmen within the Republican Party first.

"I’d rather have an enemy in office whose true intent is known and I can oppose, than have a “friend” who is a veiled enemy and can’t be trusted.

"Your bigotry is crowding out your frontal lobe.

Sorry. Neither choice is trustworthy. The so-called friend who is an enemy abuses your trust. An enemy can be confronted and you know exactly where they stand.

Keep your RINOmney. Enjoy the treachery yourself, but don't complain around here when it comes to pass...

It would be marvelous if Newt went Reaganesque on us once he gets elected. My biggest worry is keeping him in line 24/7 he strays so easily always wanting to seem amicable to the left.Classic error.

What if Romney eventually becomes the GOP nominee, and in Nov. '12 it's either him or another 4 years of America's Chickens Coming Home to Roost?

If we don't allow ourselves to be put in that predicament, it won't become an issue. We need to make our voices heard loud and clear that we are not going to sit back and allow the faux conservatives like Coulter, Will, Haley and Noonan and the Republican establishment decide for us that Romney will be the nominee. I for one see no reason to waste my time to go out and vote if the election is between Obama and Romney. I have never had that attitude before about a Republican nominee. I was even prepared to support Giuliani in 2008 had he been the nominee -- at least he was honest about where he stood and had some backbone. Romney's a liar and a wuse.

OH YEAH! So agree with your assessment.

Thanks for the post. People need to be reminded of what Newt has accomplished. Evidentally over, and over again.

I love the 2A and despise anyone who does not respect the 2A......thus Romney is one of the worst candidates. That being said, if the choice Romney or Barry, I will crawl across broken glass to cast a vote for Romney.

I like Rush’s analysis about Newt being a good alternative to Romney:

“Who was the last person to actually cut government? Who was the last person who actually led a movement that balanced the federal budget? Who was the person that did that? You’re not gonna take a guess? That’s right, it was Mr. Newt! He was the last guy who gave us a balanced budget. Now, there are a lot of other Republicans involved — Kasich was key and a lot of others — but Gingrich was Speaker. The last time this budget was balanced, the last time there was true welfare reform, the last time government was cut, Gingrich did it. Who is number one enemy of everybody today?”

What did Newt do for conservatives? He gave us the Contact with America and actually got most of it passed.
What did Romney do for conservatives? Well, he knows how to look good and give a great speech. That’s why National Review is all for him.

Your cover story is awfully thin. Let me make clear what you are saying.

Romney = enemy. Obama = enemy. Romney = Obama. Enemy = enemy.

That’s your essential argument.

What difference would it make to you which one was in office?

While no self respecting tea partier would support Romney, one must appreciate the fact of picking the lesser of two evils.

I still have hope we can find someone else who can take down 0.

None of my friends who are Republicans have anything positive to say about Romney. However, we figure that as usual, our primary in Texas won’t effect the decision and we will get screwed again like we did with McCain.
