Skip to comments.Mitt Romney is Attempting to Destroy the Republican Party
Posted on 02/18/2012 3:00:08 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
....If Romney can't win, he'll be certain that the person who beat him is so damaged, so beaten up by his negative campaign ads that they will have no chance against Obama. Unfortunately for Republicans, it creates a lose-lose situation.
Mitt Romney cannot defeat Obama. His flipping and flopping is well documented and will be highlighted by the Obama campaign as the signature of one with a lack of character. He is such a poor speaker in interviews that he attempted to appeal to the middle class by trying to bet Rick Perry $10,000 and later saying that, Im not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, Ill fix it.
If something is not a concern, it won't be fixed.
The statement was not intended to downplay the troubles of the unfortunate in America, nor was his bet with Rick Perry an attempt to point out that he has the ability to offer 3-months of an average worker's salary on a whimsical wager. His intended meanings are likely (relatively) pure but his inability to stop putting his foot in his mouth will get him demolished against Obama's buzz machine.
They won't have to destroy Romney. They just have to wait around long enough for him to destroy himself.
Leading up to the next primaries, Romney's team will go on the offensive against Santorum. If Paul or Gingrich make up ground, he will attack them as well. He does not have enough good ideas to lift himself as the rightful Republican candidate, so he's trying to destroy everyone else to make himself the reluctant choice by default.

obama is the kettle calling romney black. Obama have flip flopped and lied on more issues than romney
That will make a great bumper sticker./S
Well, romney can’t call obama black....OH WAIT!
Romney is anti-conservative, anti-Republican, even anti-American, or at least in the way and for the reasons that we like America.
Romney has an internal agenda that has been shaped by his family's anti-American Mormon history, and by his own Mormonism as a leader in the religion. None of us know why he wants to be president, I think we all know that the Senate race and the governor term were merely to be a step to the Presidency, a perfunctory step to his destiny, and we don't see any connection between him, and any destiny for America that could depend on him, at least that we want to know about.
Some of that unease that America feels with Mitt, is a sense that something is going on in there that isn't good for us, something which we would not like, there is a faint, almost imperceptible sense of a darkness in Mitt Romney, a cold, total, absolute focus on his own internal purpose, which is unknowable to us and is separate from ours and our nations.
U B RACIST !!!!!!!!!
Well, our guys (Republicans) always seem to be in a self destruct mode.
If I still lived in the new USSA, I am not sure if I could take it.
The GOP-Establishment never considered the base when selecting Romney (more like dismissed them), as they believe he needs to appeal to those who want government just like it is.
There now is a bit of unauthentic -— “severely” conservative parsing passing from Romney’s lips but it is so obviously pap for the uninformed.
McCain destroyed the Republican Party.
Did you miss the 2010 election, one of the most successful in conservative history?
Conservatives should take over the Republican party. Vote. Vote for every conservative you can find down to dog-catcher. The 2010 elections continued that process.
Tin foil hat alert.
That seems to be your repeated post for things over your head.
I think Republican party considers 2012 a wash. The problems of 2012 will be so huge that whoever is in power at the time will be blamed for many things. The Republicans are trying to avoid the blame when it comes.
I think to a great extent, they are looking at 2016. They think the population will be screaming for solutions at that point and the Republicans will give them those solutions then. To try and solve them in 2012 won’t work, because the population in general don’t think the problems are all that serious and if the Republicans do what Greece is doing, they could find themselves blamed for cutting back entitlements and raising taxes and find themselves out of power permanently, while a resurgent Democratic party gets all the credit (and you know the media will everything to blame the Reps and laud the Dems) for solving the problems and did nothing to solve those problems.
I’m seeing the Federal Liberal party playbook being played all over again.
Well, we now have the worst and most destructive POTUS in American history, and THIS is the best we can do?
I cry for America, as it sinks like the Titanic.
Romney is going to shell Newt in Georgia for 2 weeks. Time to send money to Newt.
....”A super PAC supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney on Friday purchased nearly $1 million worth of television advertising time in Georgia for spots to run the final two weeks of the campaign, beginning Tuesday.
The size of the buy, paid for by the Restore Our Future political action committee, is considered moderate, although it’s the largest splurge the state has seen in the presidential primary.”...
Just like Obama cannot run on his record.
If the other threads I’ve read today are any indication of what the GOP-e strategy is, then the party will indeed be destroyed...by their own hand but not in the way they think.
I’ve never felt more strongly about a third party if this mess cannot be cleaned out.
Well i do use it sometimes when someone posts something worthy. Romney is out for himself. His power and money. Its delussional to say hes part of a 171 year co.spiracy to destroy america.
His undiluted obsession for the office of president is becoming pathological.
His self glorifying statements on his history are so repetitive and well known we can all mouth his words along with him when he speaks.
There is a palatable panic in his attacks against anyone who threatens his goal he’s now realizing he is out of ammunition and ,out of desperation, he throws his empty gun at his opponent.
Excellent post. Near describes my thoughts and feelings about Romney. I have this sense that he’s been running for POTUS for literally decades, and to what avail? I’ve never heard one thing from him that inspires me to want to vote for him. IMHO, it’s truly all about him, and him only. I don’t get any sense at all that it’s because of his love and concern for the country. In no uncertain terms, I will-not-vote for Romney should he become the nominee. Will write in a candidate most likely, but will not cast a vote for this man.
It is time to acknowledge that there is only one political Party, with two categories of elected officials: The Power-hungry and the Comatose.
The Democrats want to control the lives of all citizens and the Republicans are too impotent to stop them.
There are a few exceptions - but when they stand up to the status quo - their GOP colleagues and the MSM tear them down.
We have only one problem solver running for POTUS - Newt!
Romney is status quo and Santorum does not have the necessary qualifications for a course correction. Santorum wants to beat us over the head with social mores. Moral people don’t need it and an immoral society doesn’t care.
That is Bishop, and Cardinal (Stake President to Mormons), Mitt Romney, the son of a Presidential candidate who was also a Bishop and Cardinal (stake President to Mormons).
Some Mormons believe that Bishop Romney is the fulfillment of the "White Horse Prophecy", and it is expected that Mitt will become an apostle in the future, Bishop Romney himself knows that he will become a God, and rule over an earth like Planet in time.
I never said anything about a conspiracy, I was describing Mitt Romney’s personal agenda. Mitt is bitter about the way his family has been treated and received by the gentiles, his father was mocked by conservatives as a Presidential candidate, his mother was rejected in her senate race.
Mitt’s family always fought the conservatives, even on the convention floor in 1964, remember that Mitt himself was anti-
Reagan and did not vote for him, and would not join the GOP until after he was gone.
"Do not forget our goal, Ron.
The GOP must be destroyed. "
I’m at the same place, I won’t vote for Romney if he gets through the primary.
I think it is time to show the GOP who’s boss, if not now when?
Romney is a weak and vulnerable candidate. And the base is fired up.
As i said ‘tin foil hat alert’
Plenty of reasons to not like mittens. His religion has nothing to do with any of them.
To me, there's not a dime's worth of difference between them and Obama's people.
That would be true if he were a casual member of his religion. But that is not the case.
Romney is a true believer...devout. His religion informs his very person and his decisions. He is the walking, talking, acting extension of his faith.
You’re right about the LDS angle. Nobody is picking up on its secret involvement and goals in his campaign.
Every word you said is quite true, yet most folks either don't realize it (yet) or are unwilling to consider it.
Romney's minions have been described as "children of the damned" with their blank stares, dilated pupils, and uniform gray suits.
If they get into office, they will do almost anything to remain there.
Romney is Obama 2.0!
It’s hard to keep a running tally of all the people who are trying to “destroy the republican Party”.
If the lying, backstabbing Bishop of Kobol is on the
GOP ballot, we will not vote for ANYONE in the GOP.
The GOP is finished for even considering the
saboteur Bishop, since it shows it is truly
the STUPID PARTY.
“Plenty of reasons to not like mittens. His religion has nothing to do with any of them.”
Totally agree. Like you said, there are plenty of reasons not to choose Romney as your candidate, but making his religion one of them, is small minded at best, bigoted at worse. He has as much chance of proselytizing Mormonism from the White House, as Donny and Marie did from their TV show.
Who cares. Its enough that he’s a poster rino. I have a lot more issues with fake religious people who try to say it doesnt effect their positions, like kerry or pelosi.
Dont support romney because hes a lying sack of excrement. Focusing on his religion says more about you than him and isnt going to convince anyone not to vote for him.
PING to this thread!
I printed out this article posted on FR (Mitt and the White Horse Prophecy) and gave it to a friend and she is still printing out copies and passing them out (over 30 so far). Everyone who has read it says that, because of this article alone, they will never vote for Mitt
First Dole ('it's my turn'), then McLame (speak no evil of OBozo), and now OBomney!!
Romney’s key strength???? Petulance
Between Mitt Romney and Obama, who would you prefer?
Always felt the guys was way too slimmy and an all for me type......The remarks in michigan about “I like trees and I like cars” made me want to puke.......
This guy has to go.
Mitt is something of a high priest and is consider by many Mormons to be the fulfillment of prophecy...a savior who will bring about a Mormon theocracy in America.
