Alabama's Republican governor has some advice for Mitt Romney the next time the former Massachusetts governor campaigns in the Deep South: Cut out the y'alls and references to "cheesy grits'' and be himself.

If Romney wins the nomination, he’ll take the south. It’s absurd to think otherwise.
Romney is losing in nearly all rural areas of the country. Kinda like Obama but not as “good”.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
It seems like the Ken Mehlman mafia managing the Romney campaign are intentionally sabotaging Mitt with the dreadful advice they are giving him.
But he is “partaying” and gettin’ it started with his homies in Puerto Rico now! Que pasa, mijo??
Why do voters fall for this phony?
“Cut out the y’alls and references to “cheesy grits’...”
Only the Hilderbeast and Zero can get away with it.
Limbaugh gets it. Romney is winning in all the areas that are sure fire Obama wins in the general election. If Romney is elected, he’ll need to win the parts of the country he lost and then some.
I won’t vote for the leftist
Brainless, mind-numbed, GOP-e drones. They don’t have a functioning, cogent brain. Romney will become another Dolt ‘96 and McLame ‘08 *disaster* for America.
If Romney is nominated, hell...
“If Romney wins the nomination, hell take the south. Its absurd to think otherwise.”
More likely it wil begin to unravel Nixon’s southern strategy. Its end game for the GOP, and perhaps for the United States, if the best that two crime syndicates can come up with is Lightworker Hussein and Bishop Willard.
Reminds me of clintons “Aww dont feel noways tired. Ive come too faarrr from where I started frum Aww culd have listened all day luung.”
The Good Lord can’t come soon enough!
“Why do voters fall for this phony?”
Most of them do not. He is supported only by accomplices, whores and fools.
“Limbaugh gets it. Romney is winning in all the areas that are sure fire Obama wins in the general election. If Romney is elected, hell need to win the parts of the country he lost and then some.”
After his slash an burn tactics in the primary against people who were and are in every way preferrable.
Half of us like Caligula, so their votes will go that way. Many of the rest of us don’t think the end result of voting for Romney will be any different than voting for Caligula, so what does it matter?
See my tagline.
The stupid Damnyankee managed to insult and alienate millions of potential voters with his big Massachusetts mouth!
You do know that there is a large black population in the South, near 40% in one southern state. No matter what happens they will be voting 90%+ Obama. Throw in the rest of the dems and liberal minded in the cities and Mitt Romney will have to spend plenty of time eating grits and fried catfish and may still lose.
After the carpet bombing Axelrod and the super pacs will do telling everyone about Romney’s Massachusetts record of liberal socialist accomplishment, Romney will be lucky if he wins a southern state.
With Romney as the nominee, all I see is the losing end of a landslide, because without the South, the GOP can’t win. Knowing this, you’d think they’d be a bit more mindful of southern sensibilities and there would be less condescending talk from the GOP-E.
He will NOT carry the South because no one will vote! His triangulation will backfire.
The South (and many patriots) would rather go to the mattresses against Obama than place their faith in Romney to save the country.
He may have money...but he's a gutless mofo!
I know Karl Rove and his thinking.
It is this: “Obama needs to be defeated. Romney is the one to take him out. He is the only one that can beat Hussein.
Marginalize the other candidates, contribute to my PAC..and done.”
I have had numerous in person convos with him and this is about it.
Agree Rooster. And it’s good to know that most in the patriotic South aren’t being bamboozled by this loathsome Imposter from Massachusetts.
Love your tagline, Jemian.
Mineral water and cheezy grits paella?
LOL, from Mississippi. Y’all know that we will sit on our hands for Mitt, ‘Bless his heart’. :)
BTW, just so the bigotry tag doesn’t stick...I would ask the same question of a Rabbi, an Imam, a Catholic Bishop, Franklin Graham, Richard Land, or any other church leader...”exactly, I MEAN EXACTLY, what is your faith, what does it mean, and where PRECISELY do your loyalties lie?”
Do you know where this picture was taken, or who the other people in the picture are besides Reid?
May God guide our course.
Well other than Reid, AND Romney of course :/
I got it. Sorry for the query, I thought it would be harder to find : / Leavitt is the one who looked so familiar, and now I know why!
Thank you for the very interesting picture.
May God give us strength.
It might take something like losing the South to make the GOP-E and the lemmings that follow their direction learn they should never nominate a New England liberal again. That might be preferable to some than seeing him be elected and being booted out in 4 years like Bush Sr. was in favor of a new, emboldened secular-socialist majority under the Democrat banner.
