Romney Really Takes It to Obama
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | June 14, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh.com

Posted on 06/14/2012 3:26:53 PM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So Romney went out and made a speech right before Obama's. Obama's giving his reset, "I'm the guy that you want for the next four years" speech. Romney went out there literally minutes before Obama, and we got a couple sound bites. He was loaded for bear. He was energetic. He was enthusiastic. Our buddy Jim Pethokoukis tweeted: "I don't think this is the Romney they want to run against at Obama campaign headquarters." Meaning, this is not who they thought Romney was gonna be. I don't think McCain would've done this. (McCain impression) "That's right, that's right, Limbaugh, I would have shown proper respect. The President of the United States is making a speech and it's his speech and I would schedule my speech for much later, or much earlier." Exactly right. But Romney's taking it to 'em. So we're rolling on Obama. Whatever's noteworthy, we'll have it. But let's listen to a couple of Romneys. He's in Cincinnati while Obama is in Cleveland.

ROMNEY: He's been president for three-and-a-half years. And talk is cheap. Action speaks very loud. And if you want to see the results of his economic policies, look around Ohio, look around the country, and you'll see that a lot of people are hurting. A lot of people have had some real tough times. And the policies the president put in place did not make America create more jobs. As a matter of fact, he made it harder for America to create more jobs.

RUSH: And then he predicted that Obama's gonna offer a bunch of excuses, a la, Barack Kardashian Oblame-o.

ROMNEY: He will have all sorts of excuses, all sorts of ideas he'll describe about how he'll make things better, but what he says and what he does are not always the exact same thing. And so if people want to know how his economic policies have worked and how they performed, why, they can talk to their neighbor and ask whether things are better. They can talk to the 50% of college kids graduating from college this year that can't find a job. They could talk to the people who represent the unemployed. The president said that if we let him borrow $787 billion for a stimulus, he'd keep unemployment below 8% nationally. We've now gone 40 straight months with unemployment above 8%. But then he'll say, well, but the things he's been doing have been good and helped create growth and put people back to work. Oh, really? Go check on that.

RUSH: That's Mitt Romney just before Obama.

Indeed he has, but the real race is in Congress, unless we have a decent conservative congress to check the president, nothing really matters.

Two things stand out here.

1) Romney wants to win.

2) Team Romney knows how to play the game.

This is a refreshing change from recent GOP history.

During the last 4+ years of GWB’s Presidency the leftists savaged him and he just hung there like a pinata taking blow after blow.

The result was the ‘Rat takeover of Congress and then Obummer.

We need a guy who wants to win, who knows how to fight, and who keeps fighting after he’s elected.

So far Romney looks pretty good in this regard.

I've said it several times.

I did not vote for Mitts in the Florida Primary. But he won the GOP nod fair & square.

But I am very impressed on how his campaign since he has wrapped up the GOP nod, how it has gone after Obama. Its been relentless. At times it seems they are inside Team Obama's decision cycle.

I remember the posts here 4 years ago, how we complained about how meek McLame was. Mitt seems to be the total opposite, he is going after Obama with all cylinders firing.

Also the news that M$NBC has panned the speech, the Dems #1 News Network is off the reservation. The wheels are falling off the Obama bus.

Well, I loathe Obama and I don’t trust Romney, so I don’t plan on voting for either.

That means one less vote for Romney, but not a vote for Obama.

I’ve seen this meme over-and-over: Where did you people learn your logic & simple arithmetic?

Conservatives don’t need your bull—our cow’s dead. Good luck supporting Romney. I won’t try to make you feel bad

Romney has wanted to be POTUS since his father’s bid imploded in 68.

He has many flaws but lack of ambition is NOT one of them.

Axlegrease, Pluffy, and Gibbs may eventually figure out this isn’t McLame.

So you’re saying that you are voting for Obama, is that right? Sure glad we didn’t have folks like you back at the time of the Revolution for Independence. With people like you, we’d still be a English Colony!

He wasn’t my first choice, or my second, or even my third - but DAMN if he doesn’t have an instinct for the jugular!

He knows he’s going to have to prove himself to Conservatives and he’s not going to do that by making nice to the Bamster. He knows that the press is against him, so he’s not going to telegraph his moves in advance, either.

Love him or hate him, it’s clear that Romney is not an idiot, and that he intends to fight!

I can live with that.

Fine, then there's a higher possibility of BO, a "man" with less than no honor being reelected.

R seems to be the presumptive nominee; can we at least build up what's good about him instead of tearing him down?

I have to admit, I am stunned!

I expected to see the same old, "Myth is a dirty RINO Mormon scumbag" posts that always take over all things Romney.

And it's early, so it may well end up there eventually.

But I am pleasantly surprised to see my fellow Freepers actually make the comments they are making.

FWIW - I am one of the "Anybody But Obama" crowd, and will vote for Romney IF it looks to be close enough to matter here in PA.

Until then, I will continue to read the "Romney" threads, and offer little or no comments.

It is time that they wake up and realize that a vote against Mitt Romney, whether for some third party candidate that has absolutely no chance of getting elected, or just sitting the election out guarantees the reelection of that arrogant, lazy lying pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

So I am suggesting lets put the hatred against Mitt Romney behind, lets unite and give Mitt Romney a Landslide against Barack Oblame-o like it hasn't happened in many years

I’ve made my Romney endorsement and I will do what needs to be done to get obama or any democrat out of office but there is some shame attached to voting for another Rino, it’s not something I enjoy talking about. I’d rather be looking forward to a November appointment to clean out a stopped up septic tank.

Romney is far, FAR from my first choice, and I'm sure I've said a few times I wasn't going to vote for him. Heat of the moment, anger and all that. But Obama is no choice at all! Don't let the "I'm not going to vote for Romney" crowd fool you ... what they're really saying is they'd rather have Obama than Romney, and those will be the folks we point our fingers at after the election (should Obama win) and blame them for 4 more years of MISERY.

BTW, Romney's going on the attack, his change in rhetoric, his much improved speaking skills are no accident: he took on Michelle Bachman's speech writer, debate coach, and some of her campaign research opposition folks after Bachman dropped out. Those are some bright, bright folks. I give them big KUDOS for the job they're doing with Romney.

It sort of feels as if the choices are "RINO" vs. "A**hole".

I am going to vote for the RINO. We just can't afford 4 more years of the A**hole.
