Romney: Obama Is A Nice Guy, But We Can't Afford Four More Years
Real Clear Politics ^ | Friday April 20, 2012

Posted on 04/20/2012 8:42:18 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

"We have come together at critical times times and made the sacrifices necessary to preserve our liberty. So a campaign based on attacks, a campaign based on demonizing one another, that's not going to be successful. This country is going to be successful by pulling together, by recognizing that we have some common challenges and working together to overcome those things," Mitt Romney said on "Hannity" tonight.

"The President's a nice guy, but we just can't afford him for four more years. Our kids can't afford him. We have to get back to machine who know what is it takes to get America strong again. I spent my life in the private sector and i want to use my experience to get America working again for the American people," Romney told FOX News.

True, if by “but” you mean “and,” and if by “nice guy” you mean “an existential threat to America.”

Another great reason for conservatives to abandon their beliefs. /S

Somehow I think people who vote for a man that publicly states that ‘Obama is a nice guy” will be shocked when he governs like the man he admires.

Voting for Obama is tantamount to treason.
Not voting is a disgusting slap in the face to our history.
Voting for some write-in candidate with no hope of winning is a vote for Obama. See the first sentence.

It’s almost as if some people here don’t realize four more years of Obama means the end of America.

Flashback, October 10, 2008...

Obama is “a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.”

Flashforward, April 2012..."The President's a nice guy"

Puke!

He’s taking the same kid-gloves approach that McCain took. If even Obama’s opponents are telling America how gosh-darn swell Obama is, then people will vote for him, idiot.

No Mr. Romney, Obama is a communist ass and therefore not a good guy.

Yet another reason not to vote for Romney. This guy is a total idiot. Not only is he a reigning member of a cult (which calls to question his intelligence), he thinks the current President is a nice guy (once again calling into question his intelligence).

ROMNEY WILL NEVER GET MY VOTE.

Is this the Romney appearance from Thursday night on Hannity? If so, he was SPOT ON with his criticism of Obama. Hannity tried to talk about the silly “Obama ate dog” story, but Romney wouldn’t take the bait, reminding him this election is about jobs, not dogs.

I don’t think Romney has to come out and call Obama a bad man. He just needs to continue to pound him on the economy, which he has been doing. Getting sidetracked with petty name-calling won’t do him any good.

Getting our Dear Leader out of the White House is the goal this November, at least for me.

LOL

You are seriously clueless.

This Republic died when Universal Suffrage was imposed via Constitutional Amendment.

Whats going on now is death rattle.

No Republic can survive when everyone has the vote, and that problem won't be solved at the ballot box.

Obama is just a symptom of a fatal disease.

There is no electoral cure.

It has to collapse, and then we start from scratch.

It is a tactical error to lie and say he is a “nice guy.” He is in fact a mean-spirited classless hack. He is very quick to ascribe base motives to his political opponents. He is a shameless demagogue whose first instinct is to divide America and condescend to ordinary Americans; those bitter clingers. He is so without character that he besmirched the memory of his own grandmother, a woman who raised him at great sacrifice. Nothing nice about him.

This is where Romney goes to the center thinking he can win independents.

If being civil and nice were all they wanted (I), all they need to do
is look at how harsh the dems are and they would choose Repubs every turn.
History shows otherwise.

IMO the MSM deals DEM voter cards as independent to mold the (R) candidate
into loosing against their champion.

Prime example of a man lacking the moral clarity and the courage to call a spade a spade.

As long as the political right lends these types the credence of our votes, this is all we will ever get. People can create scary scenarios and proclaim the end of America, but this “nice guy’ mentality proves that America is already over. This is election #2 of the ‘nice guy’ crap and where are we fiscally, morally et all?

In the Great Porcelain Receptacle, that’s where.

So let’s keep voting for “A” and being shocked when we get “B”. God Onyx what is wrong with this picture that so many fail to get?

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
I wholeheartedly agree
BUT
That doesn’t mean we have to kiss his ring.
Some of these voters are so dumb that the combination of BO offering a free pie and Romney calling BO a ‘nice guy’ is enought to push them further over the edge.
AND remember their 2 votes makes us just have to work harder to defeat BO.

Mitt forgets that “When you are up to your hip boots in alligators, it is hard to remember the job was to drain the swamp.”

If we can somehow label BO a Republican, maybe Mitt (well, his handlers) will lash out at him.

Kind of reminds me of the old saw:

“I (WE) come to bury Ceasar, not praise him”.

ATTN SIT ROOM - That is a (fractured) figure of speech, not a threat.

I keep saying it. If this is so damn important not to pick Romney, and he keeps saying this stuff, Newt can’t support him. With all the hysterics here about how awful it will be under ROmney and we’re going 100 mph over the cliff with Obama but 85 mph over the cliff with Romney, this has to be an election where Newt doesn’t do the same old political bullsh1t and rally behind the guy taking us over 85 mph.

If he does and you’re okay with it, then what you are saying is this election really isn’t any different than any other, and you’ve been massively overblowing how bad it will be under Romney. Otherwise you would not stand for Newt endorsing Romney, damn the normal polite touchy-feely politics - the future of the country is at stake. We’ve been told we cannot survive another 4 years of Obama. How can Newt endorse the guy taking us over the same cliff Obama is, just 15 mph slower, and you be totally okay with it? If it’s that important of an election, screw endorsing Romney. We’ve been told here there’s basically no difference. By the logic preached to us here that means Newt endorses us going over the cliff at 85 mph. How can this be good for the country if we do the same old political crap of “get behind the candidate no matter what, for unity” if you truly believe Romney is as bad as he’s been presented? We will come to another McCain event and lose.

Recall when this wussy weasel declined to even call the Marxist “a socialist”?

Sheeesh. He has no problem at all smearing his conservative rivals, but plays nice-nice with obama.

We’re so screwed, if he’s successful buying the nomination.

I’m praying for Newt, for Divine Intervention and for TEA Party Patriots and conservatives smarter than me to somehow, someway stage an all out, bloody floor fight at the convention, to rock the GOP-E and put an end to this stacked nomination process.

Time to rebel.

I knew from Day One that Romney was the return of McCain. He would be tough on his fellow republicans but soft on Obama. Just as four years ago, the true conservatives were ignored and pushed out of the race and the GOP crowned Romney. The last conservative standing is Newt Gingrich. He stayed true to his principles. He is not an etch-e-sketch and he stayed to make sure that conservatism remains. Let’s coalesce around Newt for the sake of America’s future. Newt is a proven conservative and has a better than a good record. He should not be ignored. After Romney’s pronouncement to Hannity tonight, let us support Newt. He stayed just in case. This is the case!!!

Yes, the DIMS use all those names, but they’re falling on deaf ears this time around. Most folks don’t give a hoot about names, they care about jobs. As long as we stay focused on that and don’t get side-tracked we’ll be alright. This time around WE get to frame the debate.

So Newt “resigned in disgrace” but Obama is “a nice guy?” Very similar to when McCain said Obama would be a “good President” but then brutally savaged J.D. Hayworth in the Arizona Senate primary.

Neither Barry or Mittens is a “nice” guy. With Barry you get a committed Marxist thug from Chicago; a stone killer. With Mittens you get a man in love with himself coupled with an all consuming drive to be POTUS — not for what he can do for America, but for a resume enhancement.

With Barry you have a sociopath narcissist and with Mittens you have a narcissist. It's like Dr. Evil and Mini Me — one running the country and the other wanting the job so bad he can taste it.
