Like Father Like Son, George and Mitt Romney

After edging out Rockefeller 51% to 49% in the winner-take-all race in California, Goldwater had a huge majority of delegates, enough to easily win the nomination at the Republican convention. George Romney set about denouncing Goldwater, and even raised a stink at the convention to have Goldwater′s delegates disqualified. Romney was accusing many of Goldwater′s delegates as being everything from racists, members of the Ku-Klux-Klan, the John Birch Society and even accused some of being Communists! Imagine that!

Once Goldwater was named the presidential nominee, George Romney still worked to undermine his campaign, refusing to endorse or support him. So much for uniting the party. Things got really ugly. The anti-Goldwater rhetoric even went as far as to question his sanity. Bad enough the Democrats, the Lyndon Johnson campaign and news media were all poised to beat up on Barry Goldwater, but George Romney did all he could to smear him as well.

Eight Million Popular votes is what Goldwater received. That was my first election, and he got my vote. The MSM is proud to present to the Republicans THEIR choice for the candidate. Da..Da....

FLASHBACK:

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."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s 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 Romney’s 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 Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Axlegrease is sitting in his new $1.7 million place in Chicago thinking:

I’m the luckiest sumb!tch in history. I’m gonna get Baraq re-elected with $4 gas, 16% real unemployment, 47 million on food stamps, and recurring $1.5 trillion deficits.

Can you imagine if somebody laid out this scenario 2 yrs ago?

Do you guys really hate Romney enough to take 4 more years of Obama? I don’t think our country will survive 4 more years.

You do realize that Mitt has absolutely no interest in saving our Republic?

I looked at his platform and it's nothing but boilerplate bromides put together to convey an image of nothingness.

Mitt' entire record is one actions that show a vile man who's first instincts are always to provide government solutions.

Mitt truly worships at the alter of State Power.

I don’t think our country will survive 4 more years.

Our Republic will be further weakened by 4 years of Mitt or Obama. Mitt would only delay the inevitable. Mitt would naturally align himself with the RAT party and RINOs, essentially marginalizing Conservatives.

If by some chance Mitt is President and the so called "collapse" occurs, you do realize that the MSM, the RATs and Rino will rabidly blame Conservatives? That likely reality alone should shock Conservatives enough to never vote for Mitt (see my tagline)

About the our Republic not surviving 4 more years. People mistakenly assume it will be Mad-Max and a bloody Civil War or such. I believe what will happen is the Federal government will become insolvent and paralyzed by it's own actions.

The States and the People will quickly realize that they don't need the Federal government and life will go own <-- Now that is an extreme simplification but that would be the look back view, say in 10 years.

A lot of turmoil would indeed happen and it will not be pretty for a while. But I am confident at the end of it all our Republic will be reborn with much greater Freedom.

So please don't get panicked into thinking it's the end if we don't vote for Mitt. It's the end either way. I will keep my dignity in tack and happily do a write-in for President.

I don’t hate anybody.

Romney is a self-avowed Progressive - a socialist, just like his dad, George Romney. I WILL NOT VOTE FOR A SOCIALIST.

If Romney is a socialist and Obama is a socialist, then what’s the difference?

Both support baby killing abortion, both support the radical homosexual agenda, both are opposed to guns, and both are pathological liars. What is the difference to chose between the two?

Mitt Romney bought this nomination, pure and simple.

This country will be just fine for 4 more years if Obama wins. Let’s not give in to the hyperbole the GOP is feeding us in order to get us to forget our conservative principals.

I’d rather get a mulligan and try again for a conservative in 2016!
