They establishment are against Newt because he hasn't been perfect in his conservatism. They're for Romney despite the fact that Romney has never done a damn thing that's conservative in his entire political life! It is an absurd position for the establishment to make. The Old Guard engages in strategies like this and then blames conservatives because the establishment loses elections. How damn stupid do they think we are?
National Review - RINOmney central.
Stopped my subscription, don’t give a smelly Obama about their opinions any more.
Mitt: Yes, he can be just like Obama.
Translated: how dare the little people go against us!
What these RNC liberal republicans don’t get, or don’t care about, is that Newt implemented a massive amount o Reagan’s agenda and ideas in the 90s, essentially grabbing the torch from the Gipper and carrying it forward on cleaner government, lower taxes, and government/entitlement reform.
During both the Reagan/Bush years and the 1994 Revolution, Mitt was on the sidelines, pointing, shaking his head no and saying ‘nope, I am not part of that.’ I have no real hatred for Mitt, but he is not even remotely conservative nor one who pushed the agenda during the 80s or 90s. I don’t agree he’s the same as Obama on policy as others have...he’d be an improvement over the current agenda, but he’s not a conservative nor is he going to change what’s going on in Washington.
One of the most revealing moments about Romney was his gleeful aside that, while he lost his Senate bid to Ted Kennedy, Kennedy was forced to take a mortgage out on his house to pay for the campaign. That’s a a rich guy who measures everything by money and enjoys using his money to buy his way through life and hurting his enemies. It was an ugly remark that revealed his petty, souless interior character.
Mittens: “Vote for me because I am socialist enough to get the communist vote in the general election!”
Mitt — YES, he can!!! go away....
Romney’s first reason to explain his conservative credentials: “I raised a family.” WTF? Idiot.
