Let Romney surrogates go for blood (They certainly did that in the primary!), Romney can remain blissfully above it. And seem Presidential."
Oh, for the love of.....I am really tired of hearing this one.
A milquetoast wimp who's afraid to come out swinging and needs others to do it for him is not "presidential." He's just weak.
Look at Reagan for your example.
The GOP yes men are creating complacency. Romney needs to pay some attention to the right wingers who disagree with him and make adjustments.
I think this is all bull and media spin. If the Republicans believe that the media are truthfully going to report poll numbers. Dont believe it folks, just keep fighting.
They’re afraid of insulting a black man. Big deal. They need to strip the bark off him.
right on. right on.
I agree, we must fight like we are behind.
I agree and it will not happen.
Romney is a liberal and he loathes conservative/conservatism, we have zero chance to hold his feet to the fire, anyone who thinks that, really is deluding themselves.
lol. It this was not such a nightmare, I would think they were playing some kind of joke on us. The question is why are FREEPERS so in the bag with a Liberal Republican named Romney? That is so dang scary. We are so much done it is not even funny. They all complain about Virgil Goode who is a conservative and COULD win if the conservatives would get behind him, but no they prefer the liberal. Doesn’t make sense.
And Reagan was Reagan there was only one, we are not going to get another. We have what we have.
Shades of McLame!
When the Mass. RINO pulls off his mittens and puts on the boxing gloves I will raise an eyebrow. If he lands a hard right to that impostors Economic (trainwreck) record he will get my attention. If he throws an uppercut followed by a gut punch to the Kenyan Klown exposing his lying, criminal, shady past and the slew unconstitutional E.O. the jackass has written I’ll be impressed. But it aint gonna happen.
Myth would have to be *gasp* politically incorrect!
Trump is right in theory, but he’s so full of it...he spends all his time saying that Romney has to get tough and then praises Hussein and the Communists for running a great convention..ummm no Donald...how about you stepping up and saying how terrible the convention was, taking God out of the platform, not recognizing Jerusalem, Sandra Fluke....How about mentioning how absolutely pathetic it is for the sitting President to have a rapist and womanizer run cover for him at his own convention...
Romney’s friends and not-friends are still waiting for him to begin his campaign ~ whatever it is.
Whether or not the polls are fabricated is not relevent.
There is no more time for gutless wonder republican’ts.
Not now, not ever.
We either crush the enemy of freedom, or it will crush us.
no one cares about that crap anymore and you get misquoted and set up.
So in other words we are supposed to play by their rules? The BC issue is what led many people to question the fairy tale that team Obonehead advanced. And Rush calling that slut a slut well what can we say? Do we continue to allow the left to define women from what occurs below their waists? No I do not think so. It demeans me.
I said something about this idea of trying to win a general election up against the Democrats with nothing but negative ads on broadcast TV.
To tell you the truth I have yet to see a Romney ad at all ~ not since last Fall. The only way I knew he was running was by tuning into the debates ~ otherwise none of that stuff ran here, or I just didn't see it. And, still haven't seen it ~
One does suppose he had some gigantic rallies here in Fairfax County like Sarah Palin did ~ but so far no news about that.
Does anyone know if this guy has actually started a campaign?
How could I possibly disagree?
You fix that by enforcing voting laws, and you forget about these independents. If you can't get Republicans to vote for you how do you expect Democrats to at least stay home?

You captured it exactly right.
True; Reagan was unique. But he didn’t pussyfoot around, and he wiped up.
I don’t buy the idea that independents are turned off by straight talk.
If only Romney would go after Obama like he did conservatives during the primary.....
well I was at a family reunion this weekend. Lots of people, politically the center-of-mass is right of center. Many right-leaning independents and what I call run-of-the-mill GOP’ers. Most don’t like the strident talk (I hear a lot of “Why-can’t-we-all-get-along?”) and it was a lot of women were voicing that so maybe the good cop bad cop approach is right.
Do you recall that in 1991 “kinder and gentler” GHWB boycotted the funeral of Lee Atwater?
Getting tough and angry doesnt necessarily mean Romney take it out of others hides, but he MUST get more aggressive and sell himself as a President that can fix this mess. Attack,attack attack !!!
Offense wins the game!
The real battle has already been won. They beat out the conservatives. Now all they have to do is lie back and let the country just pour their love out on him.
Response: He is correct.
Comment: Is Romney another left wing Republican sell out? I am beginning to think so. "The Divine One" is chewing up Romney alive! Another McCain!
I did not remember that. I remember vaguely when he died because the media enjoyed a few last jabs.
It amazes me that so many Republicans fall for this soft approach. Obama has a wildly vicious political team. So did Clinton. Neither get tarred for it. Reagan had one. Bush43 had a somewhat aggressive team, but not in the Atwater tradition. We’ll see what the Romney team has in store. They definitely have the capability if they chose to use it. I am confused by the absence of their awesome rapid response team in the late spring and early summer.
In my part of Northern Virginia the Romney campaign is nonexistent.
The progressive side is all about having a street fight for the presidency and Romney seems to be trying to play a board game to see who’ll be the winner.
Guess what, Mitt: A baseball bat beats Boardwalk and Park Place any day. Keep playing the wrong game and you’re going to get slaughtered.
Friggin’ Taxachusetts pansy!
If you mean the geeksquad from Massachusetts, those are the people Romney needed to dump a long time ago ~ like when they lost to Teddy Kennedy.
As much as I agree, they were doing a great job for awhile. They combated the war on women theme and killed it off at the time, and turned just about every attempted attack right back at the Obama. Now, I am not sure where they went. Since the bizarre Obamacare ruling, they seemed to disappear.
According to what I’ve learned, people SAY they don’t like negative ads, but in spite of that, they work.
Something scared them into becoming the McCain campaign. Mitt looked up to the task until the convention and has lost some steam since the Dems beat him up last week.
Perhaps those anonymous folks really did get a hold of his tax returns and are holding them hostage. Either way, he better stiffen his spine bc Obobo is ready to play dirty.
Well he's already sold out on the "repeal of obamacare". He has decided that some of it will be good for us. When I heard that I lost all hope of him being able to win. I swore I would never vote for him, but the thought of obama sealing his dictatorship scares me to death. The whole thing is one big disaster. We are done for. If we could get the base to vote for him, we would have to hit D.C. as soon as he was sworn in and try to force him to repeal. Is that any kind of hope?
Mr. Romney, would you like a little more milque with your toast?
I’d like to see our team harp a little more what has happened since pelosi got her hooks on that hugh hammer she had.
“When is The Donald going to reveal his big surprise???”
Isn’t this it?
“you and donald are right.
make waves and get tough and stop going on these left wing sunday talk shows .
no one cares about that crap anymore and you get misquoted and set up.”
Exactly, and tell the SRM to stuff their Obama butt-kissing dog and pony show debates up their arses. Those moderators will do everything they can, obviously, to damage R&R. Tell them to have Levin, or Rush as one of the mods or we’re not showing up. The networks can show Bari Shabazz playing with himself for 2 hours for all I care! The SRM are the enemy! Screw them!
“Rush explained it clear enough. If Republicans lose, the entire party is done.”
We should be so lucky that the gop will go the way of the whigs and leave an opening for a conservative second party. No, it’ll continue to slither along much the way it has and claim that the reason why it’s candidate lost was because he was TOO conservative.
I said as much to the RNC the other day when they (or rather, their telemarketers) called me looking for a donation -- specifically for Romney/Ryan. I told them no $$ from me unless they show that they are willing to FIGHT!
We've seen Romney fight dirty in the primaries, so it's not that he can't do it. I suspect Ryan is up for the battle, but will he be allowed? I feel like we've seen this movie before...
Mittster is saving up all the money he raised the last few months for 2016, when he can use it all against his conservative primary opponents./sarc
I beleive Mittens has the same “expert” advisors as the idiots who attacked the Tea Party and Palin before that. They have limo liberal, socialist instincts.
Isn’t this peachy:
Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan spoke out against the Chicago Teachers Union strike on Monday, saying he stands behind Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s opposition to the demonstration.
“Mayor Emanuel is right today in saying that this teacher’s union strike is unnecessary and wrong,” Ryan said in Portland, Ore., according to a pool report transcript. “We know that Rahm is not going to support our campaign, but on this issue and this day we stand with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.”
In teachers’ strike, Emanuel pushing Democrats’ new view
The hard-nosed stance taken by Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the Chicago teachers’ strike dovetails with the goals espoused by new Democrats
Paul Ryan on Chicago teachers strike: We stand with Rahm Emanuel
Count another for their side
As I said on another thread Romney needs to stop bouncing up on the stage grinning from ear to ear. What’s happening in this country is nothing to smile about.
The hard-nosed stance taken by Dead Fish Rahmbo was designed to allow Zero to come in as the moderate, reasonable one and broker a compromise. Ryan standing with Rahm neutralizes that dynamic.
