Skip to comments.Romney Really Takes It to Obama

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 $787 billion for a stimulus, he'd keep unemployment below 8% nationally. We've now gone 40 straight months with unemployment above 8%. But then he'll say, well, but the things he's been doing have been good and helped create growth and put people back to work. Oh, really? Go check on that.
RUSH: That's Mitt Romney just before Obama.
Kch.. im not a Romney fan... but let’s get it!!!
I guess you could say that romney has taken the mittens off.
Indeed he has, but the real race is in Congress, unless we have a decent conservative congress to check the president, nothing really matters.
Yep, I still don’t plan on voting for Romney, but he is impressing me with the fact he is fighting against President Obama. Let’s see if he can keep it up.
I don’t think he’s too many people’s first pick but he’s the horse we brung to this race and I’m going to back him 110%.
Ditto.. we have a mule but it isn’t an ass.. sort of...
Good to see some fighting spirit.
Two things stand out here.
1) Romney wants to win.
2) Team Romney knows how to play the game.
This is a refreshing change from recent GOP history.
During the last 4+ years of GWB’s Presidency the leftists savaged him and he just hung there like a pinata taking blow after blow.
The result was the ‘Rat takeover of Congress and then Obummer.
We need a guy who wants to win, who knows how to fight, and who keeps fighting after he’s elected.
So far Romney looks pretty good in this regard.
One vote fewer for Romney is one vote more for Obumbler. Thanks...
I did not vote for Mitts in the Florida Primary. But he won the GOP nod fair & square.
But I am very impressed on how his campaign since he has wrapped up the GOP nod, how it has gone after Obama. Its been relentless. At times it seems they are inside Team Obama's decision cycle.
I remember the posts here 4 years ago, how we complained about how meek McLame was. Mitt seems to be the total opposite, he is going after Obama with all cylinders firing.
Also the news that M$NBC has panned the speech, the Dems #1 News Network is off the reservation. The wheels are falling off the Obama bus.
Yep, I still dont plan on voting for Romney, but he is impressing me with the fact he is fighting against President Obama. Lets see if he can keep it up.
I’m voting for Romney because I want the Marxist, avowed enemy of our country out of our White House.
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
for selling out ...
Your math sucks. I don’t like Romney, but I think he’s a good man. Obama is a shit.... there, I said it...
I p[lan to vote for Romney.
Anything else is a vote for Obama, and that is something I will not do.
Have to give Romney credit for taking the fight right to Obama
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.
