"I'll point at my record, and I the nice thing about New Hampshire for instance we looked at the Tea Party voters. Those who identify themselves as Tea Partiers and said, 'Who's your favorite candidate?' I have a good lead with Tea Partiers and people who consider themselves very conservative. So where I'm known pretty well, where my record is pretty well known, why I have very good support from very conservative Tea Partiers," Mitt Romney said when asked how he will make his closing argument to conservatives.

Was the Tea Party against Gov. Palin .... LIKE ROMNEY?


FLASHBACK:

Fake-badge Mitt Romney and Bill Hudak
are now linked to the creation
of fake Tea Partys, including the very one
which attacked Gov. Palin from Texas
(see post 11)

Romney for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Here, in his own words, is a great example of why I cannot support Romney. That statement is a nontruth, meaning either Romney is saying something (just) in hope of gaining votes or he's delusional.

As I don't think he's delusional, he is proving (once again) that he will say anything to generate more votes. In the meantime, I see little reflecting his core convictions are aligned with Conservatives.

Per Fox&Friends,

Romney apparently called Gingrich a liar.

Gingrich apparently replies ‘you are lying.’

So, which liar is really lying, or is this entire lying episode just a big lie?

Backstabbing, coward, ineligible Romney:
"Do your duty for me.
With my other saboteurs, away from my name,
attack the woman ... and the black man, the Texan, and the Speaker.
My surrogates shall embrace these attacks in our owned media.
Support the attacks from my northern homes.
I will gain GOP favor by condemning the very same attacks and
ordering them opposed from my homes in the south.
Whichever way the tide runs, we will arise and only I will be left standing.”

I have been in sales in environments, everyone dressed nice in the plastic suits, trying to survive. The party line prevails with the product and the best transmitters of the bovine excrement wins. Worse, those that fail, these vultures feed on the dead's client base. Romney is this cultural phenomenon to the tee, say anything to close the deal.

If the RNC / GOP / Punditry Establishment are going to foist this chameleon upon us, then maybe the Republic deserves to fail and collapse, if this is our only hope. He is a ludicrous as this...

It is time for our own party.

I am afraid the Republican Party is not rebuild-able no matter how hard we try to nudge it otherwise....

Wall street wants Romney and the Dims are salivating that he will be the nominee.

OPINION
JANUARY 3, 2012

Mr. Good Enough

Mitt Romney lost the nomination in 2008 because of his lack of focus and a reputation for shifting his message. He’s learned something this time around.

By KIMBERLEY A. STRASSEL

Clinton, Iowa

Voters aren’t convinced by Mitt Romney. They’re not certain of his convictions; they wonder if he is the leader for these times; they’re not sold on his policies or his personality. Yet voters may be about to make the former Massachusetts governor the Republican nominee for the presidency. Mark this down as the triumph of strategy over inspiration.

As Iowans head to their caucuses Tuesday, Mr. Romney has come from behind to lead in the polls. A victory here—where he was once written off—followed by a coup in New Hampshire could well knit up the nomination. That outcome would be the result of a lot of luck, mistakes by his rivals, and a shrewd—and ruthless—campaign by Mr. Romney himself.

Stating that victories on those two states secure the nomination for Romney is beyond delusionsal...

Remember Willard in 2008: “I’ve been a hunter pretty much my whole life.”

The man has trouble with honesty. He’s had four years to rehearse his lines so that he says all the “right” things to get elected.

Sure, Mitt. We especially love the socialized medicine you established in Mass., and appointing Planned Parenthood as an official participant in the plan. We Tea Partiers just love that stuff.

Quit lying.

French is probably more native to him than English what with all the time he spent in France... dodging the draft during the Vietnam war years.

Don’t forget about his permanent assault weapon ban and his draft dodging-that kind of thing is totally representative of tea party conservatives. all kidding aside, it will be once this douche bag gets the nomination.

If he has to SAY SO, then he doesn’t. If he did, it would have already been obvious.

As the nominee against Obama, Romney’s support among “very conservative” Tea Partiers would be tepid at best: the lesser of two evils.

His [ MITT ROMNEY ] supports for a weak dollar policy — especially relative to the Chinese yuan.

(Dio - You might consider adding to your list.)

I agree that this other article highlights that this is one of the MITT ROMNEY weak spots.

It’s more important conservatives are elected to the House and Senate. Put your energy there. Third Parties elect Dems.

I made no mention about a third party, but to think that the GOP cares anything about conservatives beyond their votes is ludicrous.

Third Parties elect Dems.

We ceased having two major parties some time ago.

So why even worry about a third party at this point?

That’s what the Tea party is about. Incremental change. The entire government bureaucracy is filled with lifetime Big Government Democrat voters. While electing a conservative President would be a good thing, I don’t see it changing much for the long term.
