"I don't have lobbyists running my campaign. I don't have lobbyists tied to my..." [then a reporter takes Romney to task].
(Excerpt) Read more at youtu.be ...
If past stuff can be used by Romney or by the media against Newt, Ron Paul, Santorum, then turnabout is fair game.
If the Hillary saying she was under sniper fire incident could be used against her when she ran against Obama, then this can also be used against Romney.
Make this go viral. Put it all over the internet.
1200+ likes yet only 300+ views. What’s with that?
The Imperial Romney can say anything. Anything at all.
He is to be our King - the Mormon Obama.

Romney Sr. Advisor Ron Kaufman
Sorry... but Mitt Romney > than Glen Johnson. I’m not a big fan of Mitt, but at least he didn’t author this:
To steal a line from the movie The Survivors, Mitt Romney is slicker than whale sh@t in a ice flow.
I thought Romney handled that pretty well, actually. The reporter came across as unprofessional.
Romney Surrounded by Pro-U.N. Lobbyists
Cliff Kincaid January 17, 2008
Insisting that he is a Washington outsider, Mitt Romney has been captured on tape arguing with a reporter about whether
a Washington lobbyist named Ron Kaufman runs or just advises his campaign for president. The more important issue is what Kaufman lobbies for.
It turns out that Kaufmans firm, as well as another Romney adviser, Vin Weber, have worked to put more American taxpayer dollars into the coffers of the corrupt United Nations and other international agencies.
Kaufmans firm, Dutko Worldwide, represents and works directly with an organization chaired by Bill Clinton,
the Global Fairness Initiative (GFI), whose board includes AFL-CIO President John Sweeney and is dedicated to promoting a more equitable and sustainable world for all people.
A press release describes the substantial connections between Dutko and GFI, with a Dutko official being quoted as saying, Dutko Global Advisors is proud to support the work and mission of GFI because its work is fundamentally about nurturing the virtuous cycle of free and fair trade, the creation of economic opportunities, and harmonious relations worldwide.
The group appears to be mostly devoted to pursuing international agreements or arrangements protecting labor rights and the environment in fair trade deals. This is, of course, a major demand of liberal and union groups.
Dutko also says it represented or has worked with various multilateral organizations, including the U.N.s International Labor Organization and World Health Organization, and endeavors to educate the Congress and others about the globally respected work of the U.N. and its agencies.
Many multi-lateral organizations receive dues allocations from US government, as well as funds ear-marked for projects and programs important to public policies
pursued by the US government, Dutko says. The implication is that Dutko can keep the taxpayer dollars flowing to such causes.

He's too "handsome" to be called to task.
Oh Gee - don’t be argumentative with the prissy prince candidate.
GTH Romney, LIAR.
The last 15 seconds is particularly bad, when Eric Fehrnstrom jumps into the argument. Certainly reflects how scripted these (campaign) press conferences are, and how scripted a candidate Romney is.
The Romney News Network (Fox) will gloss over this entirely.
He’s full of GOP-E Washington insiders and lobbyists.
His campaign bot tells the reporter “don’t be argumentative with the candidate.”
Insignificant and petty. The reporter is a twit. Romney is a wishy-washy bore.
Lacks the stuff to go viral.
Great find Star.....Romney trying to say Kaufman isn’t in play in his campaign is simply stupid to deny....but then Romney is a liar and like the snake he is wiggles himslef out of a tight spot.....even if after being exposed...same ol’ tune. “I’m innocent even when proven otherwise”
wow - this is really something.
It isn’t just that he got caught telling a whopper...the way the reporter got treated at the end reminds me of how our current administration strong arms naughty reporters.
I remember this well. Romney’s “depends what the meaning of the word is, is” moment.
It was such a window in to what a serial fibber Romney is. He didn’t bat an eyelash in redefi
It's also 4 years old.
Hillary lying about being under sniper fire went viral, years after the fact when she ran against Obama. It was used against her then.
Past stuff on Newt, Ron Paul, etc, have made the rounds, too.
What we want to go viral can be made to go viral if enough people push hard enough.
How old was the Hillary being under sniper fire when she ran against Obama?
Still used against her.
How old is the past stuff about Newt, Paul, etc? Still used against them.
Only the lazy or Romneybots don’t want to try and make this go viral.
A relative who supports Romney says he looks like a 60 year old Don Draper. lol
another oldie-but-goody from 2008...
Meltdown Mitt in action...
This is from 2008, right? The little reporter was stalking Romney and waiting for his gotcha moment. BFD.
Well, you would have to look through their 2008 archives to find out .... my guess is they did cover it.
Never ask a liberal politician a real question. Das is verboten!
AFTER Romney becomes President everyone around here will just love him. The ESTABLISHMENT (Bankster, Owners of the Federal Reserve, Power Brokers, Media) have already decided the race. Just like they did Bush, Bush Jr and Obama.
When Bush Jr was running it was taboo to mention his name around here. But after 9/11 the Connecticut Cowboy could walk on water and do no wrong. At the end of his term most FR were glad to see him go.
Bush bailed Banksters (Bailouts & Bankruptcy Bill - creditors favored over debtors) & Oil, Obama bailed Unions, Insurance and Banksters.
I remember seeing this video in 2008.
Glen Johnson played the old liberal media bait and switch here. Here’s the old thread from 2008:
Those of us who are not in favor of Romney should try to keep a critical eye on the liberal media. That is to say, Romney doesn’t deserve our support.
But the liberal media doesn’t deserve our support either.
At :18 seconds of this video, Romney says “I don’t have lobbyists running my campaign”. Johnson did exactly d*ck to prove Romney wrong. He lied.
"Which campaigns are run by lobbyists by that definition?"
Heh, yeah. That was a good follow up. But I’m still interested in calling a spade a spade here.
Glen Johnson is a hack,(and this video is a good example of his hack-i-ness) this is drive by media crap. Probably gets paid by Soros or something on the side.
"I don't have lobbyists running my campaign. I don't have lobbyists tied to my..."
So, Romney said more than you claim he did and the reporter did prove him a liar.
-—————So, Romney said more than you claim he did and the reporter did prove him a liar.-—————
The reporter cut him off before he had a chance to make that point.
What Johnson was reacting to(spade) was who runs his campaign, which at that time was Beth Myers.(according to the video) And Johnson even drown himself in is own lie by using her name and pursuing the questioning along those lines.
But the line referring to ‘I don’t have lobbyists tied to my campaign’ is indeed a lie.(spade) By saying that Kaufman was in on some of the lower level meetings, he is by definition tied to the campaign.
You can say they’re both lying, which is the most accurate claim to make.(spade)
But Johnson doesn’t deserve an ounce of defense from any freeper.
Newt’s atty just sent a letter to the Romney campaign! just broke on Greta...over the super pacs and lies...OMG! s’it is hitting the fan...http://gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/2012/01/06/gispeaker-gingrich-says-it-is-false-and-defamatory-he-unleashes-his-lawyer-about-romney-superpac-and-official-romney-ads-for-president/?utm_source=twitterfeed
I had tuned out the candidate catfights (taking a break). Time to tune back in. :)
Was lurker before signing up. Are you saying no one was zotted for supporting Bush on the onset.
