Time Magazine caught at it again

Posted on 01/12/2012 7:44:36 PM PST by Strk321

January 16th edition. When did you ever see a menacing Obama with all the pores and lines on his face visible on a Time cover? None that I know of.

Regardless of what you think of Mitt Romney (and he's not the most beloved guy on FR for sure), this was a blatantly cheap, low-class thing to do. Time has a lengthy history of doing this to Republican figures (think the November '10 cover of John Boehner)

Why should anyone care.

Myth Romney is a BACKSTABBER.

Myth Romney is a flip flopping installer of RomneyCARE.

The lib media will obviously continue their longstanding pattern of demonizing the Republican nominee. Only this time, if the nominee is indeed Romney, I won’t give a single, solitary damn. They can rip him to shreds for all I care.

Whittaker Chambers was a Time Magazine Editor and a Commie. He later renounced communism and testified against Alger Hiss.

The MSM has decided that he has the nomination sewn up, so it’s safe to start trashing him. I do believe they’ve jumped the gun.

Of course, Mitt knows he has you by the noose because if he gets the nomination, he knows you’d rather slit your own throat than vote for Obama.

And that is how the RNC has operated for years. “We know you’ll never vote for a Democrat if your life depended on it, so we can throw whatever RINO candidate we want at you and you’ll have to swallow it.”

BTW, this proves that the RNC’s tired old strategy of thinking they can attract Democrats by running a centrist candidate doesn’t work.

Romney (or really any Republican) could stand up and say “MY FIRST ACT AS PRESIDENT WILL BE TO INSTITUTE SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE BY EXECUTIVE ORDER” and of course the MSM will still run him into the ground and the left will still not support him so long as he has an R next to his name.

Because when it comes to choosing between a real Democrat and an imitation Democrat, people will choose the former ever time.

It's odd. Time doesn't seem to picture Mitt as a centrist. They seem to think he's a scary far-right extremist. Almost off the charts (off the page) in his rightwing politics.

The only people who will ever see it are those in a doctor's or dentist's waiting room when the practitioner is overbooked long enough so the Highlights, National Geographic, Field and Stream and Navy Times issues for the last are exhausted.

RINO Romney is NOT a “Republican figure”.

Time is moribund like most liberal rags. It's oxymoronic. Time's editors have to know this.

The only people who read Time are illiterate.

Their average age is also likely 117. Look at any hometown obituaries to see Time subscriptions that don't renew.

They were hostile to Romney in 08. The best I can figure out is that they have some phobia of him being a Mormon. Because it certainly can’t be for his less-than-right-of-center politics.

Oh, and the guy who wrote this (David Von Drehle) is a known extreme leftist hack who’s written editorials in Time trashing Glenn Beck and the TP.

Do not forget Americian Rifleman. Those are what all the men are looking at when I enter the exam room. I knew they would like them. I have been thanked many times for getting the MEN something to look at while waiting for me. Sometimes I see alot of teenage boys reading them too.

“.....he knows you’d rather slit your own throat than vote for Obama.”

THAT is a sucker bet.

I will not vote for that phony POS under ANY circumstances, period.

I am not alone.

You’ve convinced me to go buy the magazine, just to help support their continued efforts against Romney.

Now you see, the Democrats are smart. They knew exactly why they lost in 2004 (because John Kerry was a dull candidate who didn’t inspire their voter base) and what they had to do to not repeat that election.

The Republicans unfortunately never learn.

"The Republicans unfortunately never learn."

The sole purpose of the Republican Party is to serve as an ineffective alternative to the Democrat Party.

The cover title “So you like me now?” also demonstrates a complete misunderstanding of the Republican voter base. Nobody has said they like Romney or regard him as the ideal candidate and a quick scan of FR would reveal that. But of course Mr. Drehle and his crew have absolutely no clue what we think outside their stereotypes.

When one reads Time articles, you get the impression that the editors regard the right as an interesting creature they like to watch in the zoo on Saturday that isn’t the same species of being as them and will bite you if you get too close.

The Republican Party of 2012=the Democrat Party of 1965 and the Democrat Party of 2012=the Chinese Communist Party of 1965.
