Skip to comments.Mitt Romney touts conservative credentials in new ad [BARF!]
Posted on 12/26/2011 1:42:40 PM PST by Jim Robinson
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is a conservative. At least, that is the point the former Massachusetts governor is trying to make with a new TV ad airing in Iowa.
The new ad, titled Conservative Agenda, shows Romney speaking on the stump and meeting with voters, as he makes a series of commitments. I am going to do something to government. Im going to make it Simpler, and Smaller, and Smarter, Romney says. Getting rid of programs, turning programs back to states, and finally making government itself more efficient.
Romney pledges to repeal President Obamas health care overhaul and balance the federal budget.
The ad comes as Romney tries to counter the perception among some conservative Republican voters that he is too moderate. A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted Dec. 7-11 found that only 29 percent of Republican primary voters nationally viewed Romney as conservative compared to 57 percent for former House speaker Newt Gingrich and 48 percent for Texas Representative Ron Paul. More than half of those polled 53 percent called Romney a moderate while 11 percent considered him liberal.

Romneys "conservative" credentials:
A pro-abortion Reagan denier, Romney crossed the aisle to promote abortion, gay rights, gun-control, liberal judges and advocated for and actually installed a socialist healthcare system (RomneyCare) which became the model and impetus for ObamaCare. He unnecessarily saddled his state with higher healthcare costs, busted budgets, busted Republican label, liberal activist judges, tax payer funded abortion, first in the union gay marriage, gun bans and individual mandates against the previously free citizens, complete with tax penalties for non-compliance.
Oh, yeah, and he saved the Olympics (but kicked the Boy Scouts out due to their clean and wholesome policies, ie, no homosexual scout masters).
Conservative? Not even a moderate record. Romney is a liberal progressive, possibly even to the left of his ideological twin and ally, the late Ted Kennedy.
NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
“Conservative” Romney on video:
Pssst, lil secret, Bush weren't no Texan either. Don't tell no one I told’ja, they'll get their hackles up.
So Romney is now the “anti-Romney”.
Well that narrows things right down doesn’t it?
It seems to me that many of the self-described “conservatives”, especially those running for offfice, are trying to marginalise the social agenda aspect of conservatism into oblivion. I don’t know what they think being a conservative means, but there’s more to it than smaller government, though that’s a big part. That’s not the whole of it.
Looks like a fairy.
Mitt, you are NOT a Conservative. Deal with it. If you can not be honest who could vote for you under any circumstance?
Why does that woman’s head in the picture of the picture in your picture looks like it isn’t sitting right?
You got a good eye.
Chihuahua Romney - the Magic RINO defending Obama:
Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."
Yep, Romney’s a Conservative and Obama is not a Socialist.(sarcasm of course)
Between this and the new Gallup Poll we are screwed.
I pray for our nation.
No how, no way.
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."

"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.

I'd have been admonished (at best) if I had I posted the article. Is is the Barf alert that makes it okay?
I agree with you on Romney and would never vote for him, but I’m also not too keen on Gingrich, but would and will vote for him over Mitts.
Tell ‘em, JimRob!!!!!!!
I thought someone rubbed the cat the wrong way.
Milt Romney the Magic, but ineligible, RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.
(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
wouldnt make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
I don’t think that an article showing Romney lying his ass off in public is pro-Romney.
The truth about “conservative” Romney:
If I believed this, I would be much more likely to vote for Romney. Of course, if I was dumb enough to believe this from a leftist like Mitt, I just might be dumb enough to vote for Obama.
Then drop out.
Either that or practicing to be CINC. [BARF]
RomneyCare is a Romney Conservative Solution™ program that he still brags about today.
Romney (the draft dodger) has at least as much experience as Obama to qualify as CINC. /s
You mean, like, they're both fairies?
One has to wonder whose conservative credentials. They certainly couldn't be his unless one considers MA a conservative state, and 0bama care/romney care conservative legislation.
Seems kinda late for Romney to be claiming to be a conservative.
There’s apparently a chance Romney will win Iowa.
And he’s probably going to win New Hampshire. And Virginia because no one else is going to be on the ballot.
In which case, he’s almost certainly the nominee.
If so, I’m OK with it. We just have to keep pressure on him to be as conservative as he claims to be. If it’s that or 4 more of Obama, I’m for Romney.
NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!! NOT ON MY WATCH!! NOT ON FR!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
I wouldn't be bragging about that on FR!
It’s tilted left, just like Obamney.
Yeah. I kinda thought it wasn't screwed on straight. Same thing I guess.
Saying that you want an actual conservative but will vote for Romney in the general election is like saying that you want to be paid $100 an hour, but that you will accept being paid a penny an hour.
The way I look at, Romney’s our John Kerry - nobody really likes him but he might be the nominee because he seems electable.
I’d rather it were Cheney or Rumsfeld! But they’re too old and not running. So what’re you going to do??
In the end we only get two choices and I’m not voting for Obama. Well, three choices, but I’m not staying home either.
Well, if Romney is the best the Republican party has to offer, then I’m no longer a Republican. Romney will not be promoted on FR! Not on my watch!!
I understand, Jim. It’s your show.
That’s right. And it says right at the top of the page:
“Welcome to Free Republic, America’s exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!”
Romney doesn’t fit the bill.
Willard is just like his daddy George — brain washed totally clean. Empty headed RINO who refuses to support Conservative candidates, platforms, and positions.
” - - - actually installed a socialist healthcare system (RomneyCare) which became the model and impetus for ObamaCare.”
HEY! YEAH YOU, Willy Romney! Let me ‘splain the way the voters see things:
“Politicians judges themselves on what they say, whereas voters judge politicians on what they do.”
BTW Willy, if a Conservative conserves, then just what is it that you have EVER conserved?
