Mark Levin praises Romney response to embassy attacks as very Reaganesque, his “finest hour”
The Right Scoop ^ | 9/12/2012 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 09/12/2012 4:43:11 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

Mark Levin says that Romney’s handling of the embassy attacks are perhaps his finest hour of the campaign, saying that he has handled himself in a very Reaganesque manner. He says Romney sounds like a president while Obama sounds like a drone:

I agree. Romney did a great job with his response today.

The following screaming headline, along with a scowling picture of Romney, appears on Yahoo’s home page:

“Mitt Romney politicizes Mideast violence”

I give a lot of credit to Romney. He did a very good job, great statement, and he spoke with the Obama media and answered every single question, sounded very Presidential. Of course I wont compare him to Reagan because there is only ONE Ronald Reagan, but Romney did a very good job

I NEVER in a million years thought I’d say this:

Mitt Romney was the ONLY adult in the room today.

Reagan would be pleased. Romney stood up to the press, quietly, calmly and told them the TRUTH.

Wondering how this will be treated tonight on FOX. Sean may call Levin “The Great One,” but he’s not too quick defending him. Dodo is perfect for the oh-so-professorial Noonan. She’s obsolete and needs to get back to deconstructing Proust.

I wasn’t sure Romney was the right choice for the GOP. After today, any of those doubts have vanished.

You can tell a lot about what a person believes by what they say during a crisis. Romney’s remarks were appropriate, and to his credit, he hasn’t backed down.

I’m all in for Romney. We’ve got to get all of our GOP friends out to vote.

I also agree Romney led the way here. The fact that the mainstream media kicked into overdrive to protect Hussein is evidence of it too.

Still, we’re fighting a losing battle against the media. Now and again we can overcome the bias, but in the end it is simply too much most of the time. I really is time for conservatives to simply buy up every media outlet we can. There are plenty of well heeled conservatives/Republicans, why isn’t more of an effort made to simply buy these biased city papers, or TV networks, or cable outlets? Even if they are money losers in the short to medium term, the liberals don’t seem to mind losing money to spread their propaganda - maybe its time folks on our side are going to have to be willing to do the same.

Conservatives need to create our own media. Let’s reject the leftist media altogether and begin taking over or building a competing news and entertainment establishment. At minimum, Republicans/conservatives should give equal weight to conservative news outlets like the Daily Caller, National Review, etc. No more should NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, get preferential treatment.

It was very good, all the scripted DNC/MSM panning notwithstanding. He has impressed me a couple of times in the last few weeks, and I have been pretty rough on him the last couple of years... in fact, I was - dare I say it - proud of him for saying what everyone that dissed him ought to have been thinking.

I can’t go as far as “Reaganesque”, but Romney said what needed to be said. He sounded like an AMERICAN, and yes, a president, unlike he who erroneously, sickeningly holds that title.

Rommey did a great job. I am saddened that no Repubicans have come out and defended his response. The Republicans needed to have Romney’s back today and did not.

I loved the way Romney took on the media...he held his own with them...it was great!

I’m sick of the elitist old guard, they attack our side but never go after the elft and when the likes of Sarah does we get Noonan etc mouthing off.

Hell they can;t even go after this corrupt media, no sir they even agree to host thees rats as moderators

Did everybody see the same press conference I did? I thought Romney fumbled it and talked way too long. Reagan would have been pithier, and he wouldn’t have taken every stupid question from the Obamedia.

Or maybe my lenses are fogged by nostalgia.

There is a reason the Obama protection agency in the “News Media” is busy spinning this on a movie no one has ever heard of.

You can see the blatant coordination of coverage. All the usual Progressive Fascists Democrats in the “news” media are using the same words and talking points. The mobs in the ME aren’t chanting about this movie, they are chanting “1 billion Osamas”.

This is a reaction to Obama bragging 21 times last week about killing Osama

Noonan works for that idiot that thinks Mittens can't win unless he does a sharp left into a field of still standing independents and moderates.

She's as stupid as her boss.

Can we sell WSJ to somebody who knows what's going on in this world? Then they can send this senile old moonbat packing.

BTW, when Mittens loses that won't be why though ~Any American should raise the hue and cry when we are attacked by the enemy. Failure to do so clearly identifies you as part of that very enemy. The Hildabeast, also an acolyte of the antichrist, will never recover from this one.

I have NO idea why the GOP refuses to stand by Romney. You would think if there was ANY time to stand by Romney it would be now. Its unbelievable how spineless many in the GOP are. Are they THAT afraid of Obama that they would rather lose this election than defend a fellow Republican, its sickening.
They accuse Romney of “passing judgement” Well Im sorry, he was absolutely RIGHT in what he said. These Americans were not killed in an earthquake, or a car accident, they were MURDERED, you could see it plain as day what the hell is this nonsense about rushing to judgment.

Sounding extremely presidential, I think he did himself some good today. He simply couldn’t help but make a presidential impression on many many more besides us, especially when compared to Obie’s blame America first attitude. Not a good day for the lefties.

I've wondered whether he would at least make statements friendly with the bulk of us American peasants, even though such pro-defense, pro-Israel statements would go against the grain of the bipartisan political/regulator class. Will go to the video to see now, and will also look up any statements he may have made in regards to Israel. I remain skeptical, but Romney might be earning some points toward votes instead of only looking for big donations.

This is twice now that Romney has acted like the president while Zero acted like a distracted child. During the hurricane, Romney goes to the Gulf Coast, Obama goes campaigning. Now, Romney addresses Islamic terrorism, Obama goes . . . campaigning.

“...we’re fighting a losing battle against the media. Now and again we can overcome the bias, but in the end it is simply too much most of the time.”

100% correct, which is why I expect Team Romney to pull their punches — today notwithstanding — until October. It takes the media only about 48 hours (tops) to turn every comment or action in Obama’s favor, so I think we won't see Romney really hammer Obama until the debates. After the debates, this will be a deluge of very critical anti-Obama ads. If they time it right, the media won't be able to turn every issue around against Romney until after the election.

Pray hard for Romney, folks. SO much is at stake.

Levin described them exactly right, "a gaggle of Obama supporters dressed up as supporters". Why are these people even taken seriously by Republicans/conservatives? We've got some conservative news outlets trying to grow and compete with the major networks/papers, yet our own side treats them as 2nd class institutions. No Republican should put The Washington Post over the Daily Caller. No Republican should but the NY Times over The National Review. The goal should be to have a right of center media/entertainment establishment to compete with the existing liberal one.

Then there's that General Demptse whose first response is to call up a holy roller preacher and asks him to quit encouraging people to watch that short movie about mohammad.

I'm so much reminded of the the character who supposedly jumped on his horse and rode off in all directions.

I even called Sen. Coburn and Inhofe’s office and asked them to please release a statement or something in support of Romney and so far....nothing....silence. It is like they do not want to touch the issue with a ten-foot pole.

That statement about not hurting muslim feelings was so over the top that Romney had to say something and I was so glad he did...it was the right thing to do.

Romney isn't currently elected to office. The other Republicans you are talking about are generally members of the Congress and by tradition ~ and the Constitution ~ foreign policy is conducted by the President ~ which is exactly why they are not speaking out.

BTW, I'm not a member of Congress either and let me say this about that, the only thing Obama is doing correctly is preparing to send our fleet of drone battlebots into that country and exterminate the perps and their friends.

Make every shot count ~ burn the place to the ground ~ leave 'em eating dead donkeys and roasted cricket meat.

I agree- and he did it all with authority- but not with hubris.

It’s very difficult to wrap my mind around all this- even Carter- as dreadful as he was- loved the country. I have never been able to shake the deep sense that no matter WHAT this president says he simply doesn’t understand America. I think part of it is what the film 2016 shows- but it’s more than that. He is not at home here.

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.
