Mitt Romney Slams 'Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy,' Liberal Media

Mitt Romney channeled Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, telling a radio host that he was contending with a "vast left-wing conspiracy" dedicated to undermining him.

Responding to a question from host Larry O'Connor about potential scrutiny from nonprofit groups and the media -- whom O'Connor suggested were colluding with each other -- Romney deployed a phrase Clinton had used while serving as first lady, simply swapping "right wing" for "left wing."

"There will be an effort by the, quote, 'vast left-wing conspiracy' to work together to put out their message and to attack me," Romney said in response. "They're going to do everything they can to divert from the message people care about, which is a growing economy that creates more jobs and rising incomes. That's what people care about."

All I can say is he better bring out the long knives.

Otherwise the skinny rotten crybaby will get his way once again.

I can not not vote for this guy anymore than I said I wouldn’t month and month ago.
But if I could I would super delux not vote for this loser with a cherry on top.

he’d better be bringing out the chain gun with a backpack full of 308. about the only chance he has to redeem himself is if he’s as dirty with obama as he was with the other republican primary candidates. then at least we’ll know we’ve got someone who’ll give the country a fighting chance at recovering from this socialist nightmare we’re currently in. I don’t want to hear any of the my distinguished colleague crap or reaching across the aisle BS either.

Oh, you mean how like lefty loons Think Progress claim this weekend that Ted Nugent, speaking at the NRA convention, was actually calling for the assassination of the president, and lo and behold, the very same story gets picked up by CNN and broadcast to stranded airport denizens everywhere?

That conspiracy?

I thought the same thing but then I figured if the Right Wing conspiracy had been doing its job we wouldn’t be in this predicament in the first place.

The entire lamestream media, the education infrastructure, the entertainment industry, the envion-mental cases, the race-baitists, packers, munchers and other perverts, ACORN etc, and the career government "employee" drones ARE the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.

That's pretty vast, wouldn't you say?

Romney is part of a vast left-wing conspiracy to infiltrate the Republican Party with liberal left-wing wankers, thus eliminating any conservative choice whatsoever for the American voter.

I don’t think Romney needs to worry about the left. The right will finish him off this November.

Yes, I am in a state that “doesn’t matter”. Apparently, a lot of states “do not matter”. Kind of endlessly annoying in and of itself.S
So, I didn’t get to vote against Willard (well a to go throught the motions but it is a meaningless vote because it has been decided.
Democrats and moderate Republican’ts in open primaries have already chosen “our” nominee by the time my state that “doesn’t matter” gets a vanity vote???
