Posted on 04/13/2012 2:50:30 PM PDT by FR_addict
Youtube video where Romney explains his and the Mormon Church's views on abortion.
Jan Mickelson reads a Mormon statement that says Mormons are against abortion, but Romney denies this and says you can be for abortion and be a good Mormon. He says Mormons in leadership position believe in abortion. Listen to what he says about the Mormon Church and abortion at 10:58 into the tape.
Everyone better face up to the fact that Romney is the only man in the world who has a chance to unseat obama.
Newt and Rick are broke. Ron Paul will split the party. None of them has a real campaign and they won’t get one together in time.
Quit the nit picking single issue stuff. Romney while not great or real good is still far better than the alternative.
Time to grow up, hold your nose, and get that Commie Islamist sociopath out of the whitehouse.
It is ONLY BECAUSE OF ROMNEY.
Romney 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."

Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."

Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.
(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
But but... he ran a pizza company... don’t forget his greatest achivement. [/end scarasm]
“Everyone better face up to the fact that Romney is the only man in the world who has a chance to unseat obama”
Then we are doomed. Game over, man.
“Quit the nit picking single issue stuff.”
Since when is being prolife ‘nit picking’. It’s a core conservative issue. That Romney is on the same side as Obama makes him unworthy of conservative support.
I agree, it’s like saying your nitpicking if you have a problem with Hitlers stand on the Jews.
Romney’s wrong. I’m LDS. A lot of my friends are LDS. Every single one of them is fervently anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage.
This is just another reason why I see Romney and Reid in the same light. I’m not voting for him. I’m writing in Newt. A line has to be drawn somewhere, and we’ve got to hunker down and prepare for a fight. It’s only going to get worse before it begins to get better.
Life is not an issue.
It is a RIGHT. It is the first RIGHT mentioned in the Declaration: Life, Liberty, pursuit of Happiness.
There is absolutely NOTHING that justifies the dismemberment or cranial evacuation of a living human being.
“Quit the nit picking single issue stuff. Romney while not great or real good is still far better than the alternative.”
I plan to vote for Newt in North Carolina’s primary and if he bows out, I’ll see if I can write in someone, and if that isn’t possible, I’ll vote for conservatives for all the other positions and leave the top position blank. In the general, I’ll vote for the one who boils the frog slowly, but I don’t have to like it.
Leaving the top spot blank is as good as voting for Obama. That’s what he’s hoping for. Can’t believe everyone one of us is not going to do everything we can to make sure Obama doesn’t go back in...that includes voting for someone who would never get our vote if Obama wasn’t the opposition. It is necessary to keep our country from totally falling.
Your an obama staffer, right?
FR_addict was talking about the primary.
Better be getting paid for all this. If not a visit to the shrink might be in order.
Make your argument AFTER he gets the nomination. You're wasting your breath now. If Romney loses 55% of the upcoming delegates, or less but loses others through defections or challenging FL and AZ WTA rules, then it goes to a convention floor fight.
About half of the upcoming delegates are from the type of states Romney has consistently lost.
And let's see, would we rather have a liberal President who our majority party in Congress will oppose every step of the way, or a liberal President they'll "take one for the team" on? The former situation is preferable to getting a bunch of liberal laws passed in the name of the GOP. Not to mention we can ditch Obama in 4 years, might be stuck with the Romorrhoid for 8.
Romney is pro-choice, anti-gun, and pro-Obamacare.
His record is a mirror image of Obamas.
At least if Obama is in office the evil he does gets blamed on the Democrats.
With Mittens in office his evil (same as Obama’s) will be shared by Republicans. He will push the same bills and ideas as Obama does and because he is a RINO he will be able to get these passed by the libs and other RINOs in power.
No thanks man. There is NO lesser of two evils here. Just to evils of a different pigmentation.
Keep preaching the faith! I want a president who represents me. The choice between Obama and R-Money is no choice whatsoever.
I am a sincere conservative. And I don’t see how a sincere conservative could NOT vote for anyone over Obama. If we can get the commie out of the White House, then we can go back to fighting for true conservatism. If we don’t get him out, conservatism never stands a chance; our country doesn’t stand a chance. It’s about so much more than liberalism and conservatism in this election. No matter how liberal Romney really is, he is not trying to fulfill “his father’s dreams” by taking down America. Obama is; that’s his mission. We must stop him. The game of politics can continue after we get him out.
Good to hear. I wouldn’t have any problem voting for a Mormon who shared my conservative views on what policies the government should have. Not sure why Mormons would want Reid and Romney out there as their most public spokespeople. Seems like they can only do damage to your brand.
Newt’s getting zero bounce with Santorum out. Santorum’s numbers are actually holding steady.
Unless that changes drastically and soon, the best option to deny Romney delegates is Santorum, not Newt. Newt’s just not going to win any states with the 8 percent nationally that Gallup has him at right now.
If Obama goes back in, it will because we conservatives put him back in. If we would band together, let go of our pride and vote for Romney, then we could get B. Hussein Obama out of our White House. Otherwise, we are just playing into the Dems’ hands.
There is absolutely nobody who will be ready except Mitt. Later is too late.
You don’t appear to know what you’re talking about. Polls don’t seem to have been done since Santorum exited. And national polls don’t mean anything when half the voters have voted and we’re waiting for the other half. Everyone could be due for a shock once they see the determination of conservatives to deny the Romorrhoid his coronation.
I believe Romney has legalistically threaded the needle on this issue in accordance with the teachings of his church.
But I also believe that he lied in a blatant and calculated way to the voters in MA when he represented himself as if pro-choice. As he stressed at the very end of that video, he vetoed any legislation that itself was pro-choice with an understanding that he’d have violated the tenets of his church not to.
The choice is like smelling a fart or being covered in crap. If obama reups we’ll all be covered in crap.
Haha, are you nuts? He passed Romneycare which, as Santorum explained, was written in such a way as to allow abortion funding. He also said he would maintain the pro-choice laws on the books...that’s called being pro-choice.
Absolutely true. Thing is, there are a lot of LDS people out there who are pretty darn conservative, yet they will vote for a label out of ignorance (the non-knowledgable definition) no different than someone will vote for the guy with the R by his name, or if he’s black, or if he’s a fan of the New York Knicks.
What irks me is that the GOP-e seems to have picked someone who is a liberal moderate, labeled them with an R and thrust him in the limelight as the one we need, why? Because he’s LDS. And since LDS people tend to be conservative... well then he’s going to have a following. I guarantee you that if he wasn’t LDS, he would not have the backing that he currently enjoys. It really is frustrating to watch.
I get the whole idea of getting Obama out of office. I get that it might be better “policy-wise” to put in an Obama-lite rather than have Obama himself. I don’t agree with it, but I get it. The problem lies with the GOP itself, and someone has got to send a message to them that they don’t get to pick who represents us. They don’t run the show.
The choice is between being covered in donkey crap or elephant crap. Since neither are appealing, I prefer to lodge a protest vote in the hopes for better treatment in the future.
There, fixed it.
Yeah, I do believe a part of the strategy all along was to pick a candidate who had that solid base of Mormon support, and then build off of that. They used his Mormonism to keep him the “frontrunner” all last year while he was stuck at around 20% in the polls, most of that probably from Mormons, who are very likely GOP primary voters far beyond their representation in the population. He couldn’t have gotten to where he did without the block Mormon backing.
Mitt ain't ready to be a Republican nominee for anything and never will be.
Fox news is the only data that we do have.
Fox news shows that Santorum supporters are breaking equally for Paul (30 percent), Newt (30 percent), Romney (20 percent), and the rest back to undecided.
Ron Paul is getting a bigger bounce than Newt.
Newt needs 100 percent of Santorum’s supporters to come to him, and he’s only getting 30.
With the current numbers, Romney’s going to win every remaining state.
Yeah, you’re right. End of the week and I’m tired.
You can’t make the mistake of applying national poll numbers to particular state contests. New York and Texas will have very different vote spreads.
The possibility is more to deny Romney the nomination, not to have Newt win outright. So votes going to Paul isn’t the worst thing that can happen.
With 11 days to go until the next primary, a lot of things can change too. I just hope Santorum doesn’t re-endorse Romney in the primary. That would be enough to make me never support him for any position again.
So you are OK with replacing a Democrat commie with a RINO one as long as he has a R after his name?
Ignoring the fact that he will implement many of the same bad ideas as the current commie. Yes, we must have the Republican commie in there so that we can share equal blame for messing up the country by compromising our conservative beliefs to the establishment who wants us to bow down to them and do as they say.
After all, we work for them now, not them for us.
Romney's bad behavior Exposed by Seamus
"Romney Loses Nomination Over Dog Abuse? -
Romney was traveling that summer with his wife, five sons,
and Seamus to his parent's cottage on Lake Huron.
But hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea,
which ran down the back window of the car.
David Kravitz wrote on BlueMassGroup, a liberal blog.
"It also strikes me as classic Romney:
it solves a problem efficiently, in a business-like manner,
and with no regard whatsoever for the suffering
that the solution may cause."
"But the details of the event are more than unseemly
- they may, in fact, be illegal.
Massachusetts's animal cruelty laws
specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal
"in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise,
in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner
or in a way and manner which might endanger
the animal carried thereon.
"An officer for the Massachusetts Society
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals responded
to a description of the situation saying
"it's definitely something I'd want to check out."
The officer, Nadia Branca, declined to give
a definitive opinion on whether Romney broke the law
but did note that it's against state law to have a dog
in an open bed of a pick-up truck, and
"if the dog was being carried in a way that endangers it,
that would be illegal."
"Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney's Pooch?
- Scientists Say Dog Likely Experienced Wind-
Whipped, Uncomfortable Trip -
"Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus,
the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and
attached it to the station wagon's roof rack.
e'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make
the ride more comfortable for the dog,
".. Jordan Kaplan, the owner of Petaholics,
a dog walking service in New York City,
and a lifelong dog owner and dog lover,
said Romney's actions were uncalled for"
"Romney's dog - This is a distinction Mitt Romney
probably could do without, but he is surely
the first presidential candidate to be attacked
for putting a dog with diarrhea
in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon.
Romney's defense: Seamus liked it.
[like the citizens under Romney's RomneyCARE, etc.?] "
"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered
the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window,
where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble.
''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!''
A brown liquid was dripping down the back window,
payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding
on the roof in the wind for hours.
As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust,
Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station.
There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus
and the car, then hopped back onto the highway."
Romney attacked Gov. Palin’s handicapped children
to make Obama POTUS in 2008.
You really like that?
Would you have made Benedict Arnold POTUS, too?
Well he will be. Our only choice. It’s going to be another hold your nose and vote. Well not quite that bad. There is absolutely no other alternative now. If you want Bam out of there Mitt is our only available tool. This is what separates republicans from democrats. They feel we analyze facts and act.
Here’s the problem. Gingrich was at 20 percent when Mississippi and Alabama rolled around.
Gingrich is now at 12 percent. Romney was at 33, and is now at 46.
So Romney has strengthened 13 points while Gingrich has lost 8.
Gingrich needs to be at 20 percent in order to be competitive to Romney when he is at 33 percent in the South. Gingrich at 12, will only get about double that, 24 percent in the Southern states, which isn’t going to be enough to overcome Romney at 46, who will probably get about 35 in the South.
So I would say TX is 35-30-24-12, right now with Santorum at 30, and Gingrich at 24.
If Santorum support breaks 30/30/20, it ends up with 35(+8), 24(+11), 12(+11), or 43 - 35 - 23.
Romney’s up by about 8 in TX based on those national numbers. This is very bad news for Gingrich at this point, because it assumes that all of Santorum’s support moves over.
I’d like to restate that. The difference between a conservative and a liberal not democrat and republican if you catch my drift.
Here is the problem.
Romney is a CHEAT. He “votes” and “polls”
are fabricated because he PAYS for them.
Romney cannot win. Dog abuser and backstabber karma.
Romney may be your “tool” but frankly your,
and his sexual interests and fascism are NOT of interest.
NO ROMNEY. NO RINOS. NO ROMNEYCARE. NO LIARS.
