Romney Eyeing Blowout Keeps Foot to Newt's Neck
Buzz Feed ^ | January 29, 2012 | Zeke J. Miller

Posted on 01/29/2012 12:41:55 PM PST by RitaOK

"It not about winning here anymore," one Romney staffer told BuzzFeed. "It's about destroying Gingrich — and it's working."

This means we are seeing the turn to totalitarianism, or we hope to fight to the convention, where we battle both Romney and Ron Paul for delegates on that second ballot.

Romney is a vile disgusting little man that has brain envy.
He is no different than BHO.

It’s always been about crushing Gingrich. After it was all about crushing Palin. And all about crushing Cain.

Remember when we thought it was Axlerod or someone in a Soros-funded group that did those things?

Now we know better. The insider Republican ruling class elite know that if anyone like Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, or Newt Gingrich wins the nomination - their days of being in power and control are finished.

Obama and his team think they can win against any Republican, by whatever means necessary. It’s the other side that is threatened.

As long as Sheldon Adelson keeps WOF well-funded, Mittens will have his work cut out for him! The fight has only begun, and Newt has vowed to take it all the way to Tampa!

If the Republican Party pushes another limp-wristed, spaghetti-spined Progressive-RINO-in-"Conservative"-clothing, a la Juan McCain, this WILL be the last year of a Dim-o-RAT/Republican, two Party Presidential race. And Mittens can NOT beat 0BowMao! I can imagine ZER0's opening statement at the debate .. "By the way Governor .. thanks for leading with the precursor to the individual mandate and 0bamacare." Game->Set->Match.

God help me, I detest Romney as much as Obama now. I always disliked him and I always knew I could never vote for him. But after seeing his cutthroat, ruthless, rotten, wicked, underhanded campaign against Newt, all the while keeping that insincere, superior little smile on his face, the very sight of him sickens me. He is one of the most repellent individuals I have ever seen.

What I don’t understand is, how can so many people not see it? How can they cast a vote for such a piece of garbage?

I’m sorry, but this is so insidious and transforming as to make this poster believe it is not of ordinary human political magnitude, but the work of principalities and powers in a darkening world. Just staggering.

Surely the GOP doesn’t think that all republicans who didn’t support Romney and some that did will work for him in their state and give money after they exposed their dirty sleazy characters? They must bank on the fact we have no place to go so they don’t care that we know they are scum and we will have scum for president if he wins. I believe Newt will be president.

easy, it’s a 3 way race and Romney’s ads are effective at pushing people to the alternative (Santorum)

If Santorum were to drop out, they would have no where to go and the negative ads wouldn’t work as well.

Romney is in the perfect position, he can ignore Santorum (thus making him look better than he is) because Santorum will never pose a threat, while firing relentlessly at Gingrich. Romney has to thread the needle to win this, and he is pulling it off so far. However if Santorum leaves the race it’s a whole new ballgame and Romney will have to give people a reason to vote for him and not against Newt.

I hate to say it, but Newt dropped the ball in the last two debates. Granted, I couldn’t really watch them because I can’t stand Santorum and Romney. Two long-winded gasbags in love with the sound of their own voice.

But Newt should’ve savaged Romney right then and there, and flayed him alive. I don’t understand why Newt didn’t.

Santorum’s stock has hit rock bottom after this Florida maneuver of his, designed clearly to prop up Romney. There is no guarantee that his lousy 16 percent in FL, now fallen to 9% in one poll, would move entirely to Gingrich, but had Santorum suspended after South Carolina, a large part of it after Newt’s blowout there certainly would have moved to Newt.

A blistering shame on Santorum. This morning Jeb Bush didn’t sound entirely disinterested in running by a long shot, so if Newt goes down and delegates are in the air, look for Jeb to get in. Santorum is wasting our time trying to kill off Newt.

Santorum’s baby is sick and in the hospital, one of the reasons he went home.
He is a good guy, he never really had a chance.

Agreed. I was prepared to ultimately accept the shite sandwich of a Mittens nomination if Newt or Santorum couldn’t grab the ring. But, after this past coupla weeks and the RINO establishment becoming cheap-shot snipers against Gingrich (and completely ignoring Santorum) and Romney also playing dirty, I am so angry I could spit blood! Also, reading that Mittens mentor, his father, had a fondness for Saul Alinsky — I am almost resigned to 0BowMao getting another four. Mittens will NEVER repeal 0ZER0care! God help us!

I know that Newt has had his “issues” — but on his worst day, Gingrich is a saint compared to this self-professed “Moderate/Progressive ‘Republican’ ,” Willard Mittens Romney! And should Mittens become the nominee, it WILL be the end of the Republican Party!

And OUR goal is the complete political destruction Romney...and by extension the GOP if necessary.

We're not going to roll over this time.

We have opted for war.

Mitt Romney will not be POTUS. We will take him out of the polical mix in the primaries if possible. However, we are willing to ENSURE his defeat in the general election if necessary.

If that becomes necessary, we will take out as many of his supporters as possible.

Some of us having been warning Free Republic for half a decade what it would be like when a Mormon Mechelzdiak Priest ran for office (the lies, the nastiness), but we were called bigots. Now maybe people will understand what we were talking about. You can’t separate the religion and the history from the man.

What I don’t understand is, how can so many people not see it? How can they cast a vote for such a piece of garbage?

I'm not so sure people don't see it. Abe Lincoln said a mouthful when he said, "You can fool some of the people....."

During the last debate, Speaker Gingrich was drawing a comparison between his wealth and Romney's. He used his right hand closed and low to indicate his wealth and left arm held high to indicate Romney's. A mouse vs an elephant, I believe, is what he said.

Romney's reaction at the mention of his vast wealth - was to puff up his chest, smile broadly and nod his head in the affirmative. He even pivoted his body toward Speaker Gingrich.

Beside flat out bad manners - I'm sure people who are unemployed/under-employed or are in foreclosure - noted it, if not only subconsciously. It's one thing to be successful but quite another to gloat in the face of an America in dire financial straits.

That one gesture was the beginning of Romney's unmasking, and he's only going downhill from there.

Listening to our so-called conservative pundits i.e. Rush, Hannity, Levin, we’re supposed to rally around the nominee ( even Williard). No way! Romney has scorched the earth and poisoned the well. I’ll recuse myself and write in.

On Fri, Hannity actually sounded fearful of this based on Mittens methods. He should be very afraid along w/ all the others. They will lose us as well if they don’t present a spine.

Scorched earth makes it impossible to distinguish between a vote for Romney or one for Obama. This means the two partys have merged. A write-in is the best I can offer too. Besides, if Newt should lose Florida, it becomes for me more than just about Newt alone, it will be to my actively working FOR a crack up of the Republican Party elite Establishment who are doing this to us decade after decade. I even hope for a Third Party if it forces a reallignment for the Republican Party. Try to be a delegate. I fear for our peasant style future, only a fraction less under Romney than Obama. That is not enough
