Paul Ryan’s Toughest Opponents Will Be Romney’s Liberal Staff
Conservative HQ ^ | 8/14/12 | Richard A. Viguerie

Posted on 08/14/2012 11:22:08 AM PDT by xzins

In the afterglow of Mitt Romney’s announcement that House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan -- a strong fiscal conservative with a 100% pro-life voting record -- would be his running mate, conservatives were excited to think that this might mean a shift to the right by the Romney campaign.

We want Romney to win, so we hope that is true.

However, such assumptions discount the influence of Mitt Romney’s liberal campaign staff on both the direction of the campaign and Paul Ryan’s fortunes on the ticket.

Governor Romney has no longtime movement conservatives in his inner circle and who you walk with says much about who you are.

In contrast to Ronald Reagan, who surrounded himself with conservative outsiders, such as Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt, Lyn Nofziger, Dick Allen, Ed Meese, Marty Anderson, Judge William Clark and others thoroughly steeped in conservative policy and politics -- Governor Romney’s inner circle is made up entirely of establishment Republicans, such as former New Hampshire Governor and Bush White House Chief of Staff John Sununu and super lobbyist and Bush 41 political director Ron Kauffman.

Some of Governor Romney’s most influential staff are veterans of Florida’s liberal Republican turncoat former Governor Charlie Crist’s campaign. This includes Romney’s chief media strategists, Stuart Stevens and Russ Schriefer and Romney’s floundering press secretary Andrea Saul, who was Crist’s communications director and also worked for establishment Republican Orin Hatch.

In addition to explaining why Tea Party backed Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who defeated Crist, never had a prayer of being Romney’s running mate, it also creates the perfect environment for the campaign to be plagued by the liberal staff versus conservative vice presidential candidate intrigue that bedeviled the 2008 McCain/Palin ticket.

In 2008, someone someplace in the McCain operation was smart enough to figure out that after eight years of Bush, if McCain was to have a prayer against Obama, he needed a running mate who was an outsider who would shake-up the race and excite the conservative base of the Republican Party.

He chose Alaska’s conservative Governor Sarah Palin, whose successful 2006 anti-establishment campaign against good old boy Republican Governor Frank Murkowski in many ways presaged the Tea Party rebellion of 2009.

Palin’s conservative-themed acceptance speech at the 2008 GOP convention electrified the audience, fired-up conservatives and was the high-water mark for the McCain campaign, which began to founder when it was faced with real choices between conservative principles and establishment pressure to support the Bush administration.

McCain’s campaign staff, made up of his longtime Capitol Hill staffers and Washington Republican establishment veterans of the Bush White House, were also soon in a tizzy because Palin was drawing vastly larger crowds than was McCain.

What’s more, the things that Sarah Palin brought to the ticket -- an eloquent and heart-felt advocacy of the right-to-life, a readiness to acknowledge divine influence in one’s everyday life, a healthy skepticism of Washington-based solutions, and a sharp wit ready to tweak establishment insiders -- were all things McCain’s Washington establishment staff and consultants weren’t about to make part of the campaign and certainly didn’t want on TV coming from their candidate for Vice President.

The result was that Palin’s benefit to the ticket was wasted as she was set-up for interviews with hostile establishment TV reporters like Katie Couric and Charles Gibson, but prohibited from meeting with right-to-life leaders in New Hampshire who were on the outs with the state’s GOP establishment.

Is the Romney/Ryan ticket going to be doomed by the same establishment insider staff versus conservative vice presidential candidate intrigue that doomed Republicans in 2008?

The Washington Republican insiders and consultants, who are velcroed on to Governor Romney -- such as Saul, Stevens and Schriefer -- readily accept the liberal premises upon which Obama and the establishment media want to frame the campaign. Romney’s advisors are certainly much more comfortable attacking conservatives and defending establishment Republicans, like Crist and Hatch, than they are at crafting winning conservative alternatives to Obama’s disastrous liberal agenda.

Paul Ryan, on the other hand, got where he is by applying conservative principles to Washington’s spending problem -- even if the result wasn’t as bold as many conservatives, including myself, would have liked.

No doubt Paul Ryan is going to run circles around the hapless Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate and Ryan’s facility with the numbers behind Washington’s spending problem make it unlikely hostile reporters will trip him up there.

Ryan’s toughest opponents will not be the Obama campaign and the Democrats or others outside the Romney/Ryan campaign, they will be the liberal insiders and Washington GOP establishment figures who have crafted Governor Romney’s content free campaign and who want nothing to do with the conservative economic ideas and commitment to the right-to-life and family issues that make Paul Ryan so appealing to conservatives.

Go here to sign our letter to Governor Romney urging him to turn Paul Ryan loose to tell America the truth about Obama’s out-of-control spending.

And Obama, and the MSM, and the Libs, and the Dem Party . . shall I go on?

We live too much in this bubble. Most Americans don’t think the way we Conservatives think. Most Americans don’t think the way Liberals think. We can cling and hope and pray that Rasmussen isn’t an outlier when every single poll has this from a solid win to landslide for Obama, getting excited when someone says something we believe ... or we can realize we are a minority, doomed to eternal minority status if we ever again listen to the GOP elite about whom to nominate and how to run OUR Party.

We will never, ever gain a wider acceptance of Conservative values through sheer force of will and wishful thinking.

Crist is a pro-abortion rino who almost ran as a democrat, but chose “unaffiliated” instead.....against Marco Rubio.

Any way we can make Ryan the presidential candidate and RINOmney the VP?

That way, we can put RINOmney somewhere that he can not prove that he is simply Obama lite.

RINOmney is a vapid dork.

Which, I guess, is slightly better than the Obamaloon, who is a talentless, lying, felonious, cretinistic vapid dork.

IOW, Paul Ryan is window dressing -- "to fool the bubbas" (if that's the expression)?

Seem like a typical Romney trick, but I don't think Paul Ryan knows it -- yet.

Please...give this a break. McCain chose Palin, why didn't Romney do it?, there are no conservatives in Mitt's camp blah blah blah crapolla harping nonsense.......

Palin, despite a gargantuan pleading (from me also who swore to donate by credit card often and largely if she declared anything) from supporters chose to demur and settle her personal goals whatever they are.

Pick this man's campaign apart in it nascent reprise with a new conservative running mate. Pick it apart. Harp on the ‘could haves’ the “we can't accept anything less than ideological purity” and give this election to Obama on bended frickin’ knee.

I am so tired of this. I'm not saying I agree with everything Romney has to offer and I don't post Pro-Romney spew like some on the religion thread post against him, but I damned sure know what I'll get with Obama in the next 4 years. If you guys, the mod, or Jim Robinson want to ban me for saying it, then do it.

It is one thing to oppose an ideological opponent against your ethic. It is another to give it all way to an opponent even more committed to your destruction. I'm not gonna head into a 15th year here listenng about Dictator Obama if I can help it.

If Romney is elected, hope he runs the country like any successful business executive would. Bring in the best minds that understand finances, like Board of Directors. Forget appointing political cronies. Help to bring businesses back both small and big and then start laying off the excess of government workers and eliminate departments.

I haven’t seen anyone banned for saying they are an ABO so they’ve decided to support Romney. Nor are they banned for posting pro-Romney threads, making pro-Romney comments, etc.

The only ones I’ve seen banned are those who violate the truce and make personal attacks against those who are not ABOs.

I fully understand the logic of an ABO. I used the same thing with McCain. Romney, however, was too much for me. That doesn’t make either of us traitors. That just places us in disagreement over the right decision regarding Romney.

Mr. RomneyCARE has ALWAYS supported Obama and their policies.
He was never in this to win. Just to make money.

Viguerie needs to get over the fact Santorum didn't make it.

But if Romney is so captured by his staffers how did he break free of their clutches long enough to pick Ryan?

Dan Senor is a great and brilliant adviser on foreign policy.

If Hatch is so bad, why does Sarah support him?

Crist is hardly "establishment". He's never professed to be a conservative, but he's certainly not establishment.

Gee, Newt didn’t seem to think Romney was such a candy-ass. Or Santorum. Or Perry. Everytime he knocked one of them outta the race I had to move to the next name on the list. Then there was only the candy-ass left to beat Obama. I’m betting the “milquetoast loser” will send Obama back to the arms of Bill Ayers.

Clearly Mitt is operating independently of them to some degree.

Way to pretend you have no responsibility. Any conservative who doesn’t do EVERYTHING possible to defeat Barak Obama, including voting for Romney, HAS no “principles”. But lying to your mirrors seems to be the most popular way to live with yourselves.

There's not a shred of truth to that statement, given Romney had planted 3 of his top campaign operatives on Rubio's staff:

"Florida Sen.-elect Marco Rubio announced his top staff, which included three former Romney campaign hands. Sally Canfield, who served as Romney's policy adviser, will be Rubio's legislative director and chief policy adviser; Joe Pounder, who was in charge of rapid response for Romney, will be Rubio's communications director; and Alex Burgos, who directed specialty media for Romney, will serve as director of media affairs for Rubio." -- RCP/Time, Jan. 4, 2011

Romney didn;t beat them. They beat themselves, while generally not targeting him. He squeaked in because all the others were busy firing at each other instead of him.

Well he's jolly well doing a bad job of it so far.

That’s just it - it’s all just a shell game. Republican, Democrat, Romney, Obama, it’s all pretty much the same. I mean, we can argue about tax returns and Medicare all we want, but the question is: Will Romney actually do anything to restore constitutional government? If the answer is yes, then what actual evidence do we have for the assertion?

Will Romney work to repeal all the gun laws, and the property forfeiture laws, and the EPA regulations, and the PATRIOT Act, and the TSA overreaches, etc. etc.?

No way he will. He’s as much of a big government inside player as Obama and the rest, and he won’t touch them. While the proles are distracted with extraneities, our freedom goes down the tubes, regardless of the party in power.
