Skip to comments.Romney, Tonight: ‘I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed.’
Posted on 08/30/2012 4:28:51 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
Some of you will want to read portions of Romneys speech before he delivers it; some will not.
For those that do, the excerpts that have been released by the Romney campaign are below:
I wish President Obama had succeeded because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isnt something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we CAN do something. With your help we will do something.
Now is the moment when we can stand up and say, Im an American. I make my destiny. And we deserve better! My children deserve better! My family deserves better. My country deserves better!

S-C-R-E-W Y-O-U Romney.
Ahhh Romney, Obama did succeed, he has accomplished everything to this point he wanted to do, and now he wants to continue with the down fall of America.
I wish i had won the lottery. i guess we are even.
Because I know where Obama was trying to take us, I can say I am glad he didn’t succeed beyond what he already did, and I’m glad he only had 4 years to do the damage he did do.
But Romney is reaching out to O’s former supporters. There is a chance this may be a landslide even with all the DNC vote-theft.
Doofus doesn’t get it, does he?!
I'm thankful that Obama's so incompetent... otherwise we would have gone completely communist by now.
Really? He did succeed. He created the first step toward complete socialization of our health care system. I wish he had failed, and Rush was totally right to share similar sentiments. Romney, why would we wish success on someone whose values are antithetical to our own? We might as well wish for our own destruction.
Bingo. Rush’s view was completely bastardized. He was completely, 100% right. Why would we want the enemy to succeed?
what an ass...Romney that is...and whatever “too cute by half” idiotic consultant who told him that the independents and moderates would come rushing to him if he would but criticize Rush in a back handed way....WHAT AN ASS!!
Answer: The statement makes sense ONLY
when the goals are the same.
Heh...let’s see the ABO sheep defend this.
NR is a pretty reliable source. I’m thinking I’m not watching tonight. With the always prissy, self-righteous and hypocritical Jeb around...it isn’t even worth sticking around to see Rubio. Maybe I’ll watch Clint.
And then comes the punch right in the stomach to Obama.
That part of the speech will come after this. I’m confident Mitt will do it!
God speed, Gov. Romney!
Rush wants Zer0 to fail.
You see for me, WINNING IS PARAMOUNT. And if this is what it takes, God bless him. Us right wing crazies are already going to be holding our noses as we vote, we'll just have to avert our eyes and ears a little until then too.
Romney ... a total moron. Is he clueless as to Obamas goals?
Just keep in mind, tonight’s speech isn’t for us, it’s for the independents.....that’s reality.
Channeling McCain and reminding us why we didn’t vote for him in the primaries. He wanted the third generation Communist on both side of the family to succeed?
Exactly. That’s where this election will be won or lost.
Also it is a smart move strategically to disarm the moon bat libtards that think equating wanting Obama to fail with racism....dulls that dem talking point...
Proof that Rush is the most relevant man in America.
But Romney is running for president and it makes sense for him to attack Obama over his stated goals rather than his unstated ones as Rush did, even if Obama’s heart was really in the unstated ones (e.g. to turn America into a soft socialist Euroboob welfare state).
What an absolute milquetoast.
I’m gong to watch Romney’s speech and I despise him and will not vote for him and he illegally violated party rules to take over the Republican Party. The name of that party now, is, “Bain 2 Party”.
I think Romney, aided by a GOP Congress, probably does more long term damage to America than a second term Obama, opposed by a GOP Congress.
For a present day small example of Romney already actively working to undermine our Constitution simply read this thread;
For an example of Romney already actively working to undermine the TEA Party, and locking conservatives out from having any influence during this, and especially future elections, read this thread;
SO you say youre going to make sure that Romney gets pushed to the right?
Where were you when the above happened?
Like most of us, you were unaware of it happening, unaware of current Republican Congressional Leaders playing a key roles, implementing the Socialization of America right under our noses. None of us knew until it was too late.
As devastating as the above incidents are to America, and especially the TEA Party movement, they are but a tiny, tiny preview of what 4 years of Romney is going to do to our Conservative movement.
Obama isnt going to have the friendly Congress that Romney will, and even when he tries to implement the very same Socialized laws and regulations that Romney would, hes going to meet enemy fire.
With Romney, the Conservative movement is going to go down from friendly fire.
Bottom line if Mitt can't close the deal in November it want be his lack of conservative votes it will be totally on Mitt's ineptitude in running his campaign for president, his character, and nothing else.
Tell us Mitt if BO had been successful then what?: You would be at the DNC convention cheering him on? Well there you go all you Mitt people that say Romney is not Obama. I guess there is proof in his own words now and not just his stance on the issues he supports.
The party should be called liberal lite.
Romney set out to destroy the conservative candidates with lies and distortions, yet he will give Obama credit for trying - vomit.
That would only happen if Obama were a conservative, since he is not Romney wont.
I have an idea, stop caving to the squish no nothing idiots who call themselves independent and speak the truth of conservatism.
Aren’t you tired of Republican men who are nominated who have no testosterone.
Good grief when will the Republican party be for something and step up to save the country.
This we are just like democrats but not as bad is boring.
Can’t win elections without the independents, and if you don’t win elections, you can’t do squat.
the problem was that there was no way he could actually deliver on everything. no way he could stop “globull warming” by the simple swipe of his hand and the increasing of taxes. Club Gitmo was never going to close because there was no place to put them. He never wanted to create a “purple” America because he hates it. If Obama actually believed everything he said (when he thought the cameras were on) we might have been better off because he doesn’t believe in America.
His term was like a four year vacation using someone else’s credit cards. An academic experiment that will be discussed in the faculty lounges for a generation.
It will be interesting to compare and contrast Romney’s speech with this one.
“For an example of Romney already actively working to undermine the TEA Party, and locking conservatives out from having any influence during this, and especially future elections, read this thread;”
Yes, I have read those threads and saw the votes myself when they were taken at the convention. The national chair and Romney killed the conservative voices and Tea Party. If Romney wins, the mission is complete. The party will be Romney liberal and he will own it for years. I doubt the party will ever change back to have some conservatives in it once he is elected.
He will be able to choose every delegate who goes to the next convention. Hello, dictator.
There is no way to convey my disgust and dismay over the death of the Republican Party. The killer is Romney and his aide in chief is the national party chairman. They killed it right on the floor of the convention. I couldn’t believe the illegal decisons of the chairman as to those votes. Then, he illegally would not take a role call vote on either question. He knew those no votes won.
People matter no more in that party. Only Romney matters and he does whatever he pleases. Illegal is illegal - now wonder what is in his tax reports he won’t release. I thought that was nothing, but I don’t think that now that I have seen the real man.
I agree with all you said, except for you final word ‘dictator’.
Replace it with ‘Third Party’. We have millions of patriotic Americans who will ‘get-er done’.
You can’t win elections if you are not speaking convictions. To abandon conservatism just to win these independents....
Reagan didn’t do that, he won in a land slide.
2010, we won without being squishy.
I am tired of the Republican being the party of squish.
hopefully you will send money to Todd Akin, he is your kind of Republican , and he needs the $$$
Romney is the dictator head of that party now if he wins.
As for third party, conservatives don’t have a party now and neither does the Tea Party as Romney’s people kept the words, “Tea Party” out of every speech anyone made. They went over every speech before it was allowed to be given.
My true feeling is conservatives are in the minority and will never have a say anymore. I also think the country is doomed to fail and maybe the conservative preppers will be the ones to rebuild the country.
higher more enthusiastic turnout of the base,
can easily exceed the lose of SOME independents.
for every independent Romney gains this way,
he is losing TWO conservatives,
who will now stay home.
I have seen your other posts, newbie, and that’s that.
