Skip to comments.Well...Mr. Romney? Show Us Your Cards NOW!
Posted on 09/17/2012 6:33:59 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache
Volume 1 of the Mother Jones tapes are out and David Corn says more are coming over the next week, promising clips every few days from his source.
So I am asking you as a Conservative who is impressed with the fact that behind closed doors you actually spoke like you had a real pair of balls and like a Conservative.
We now know where this was filmed...in Boca Raton at a billionaire's home who happens to be someone who you have done business with over the years. You seem to have a good memory...who sold you out that night?
You better think about who you have surrounding you Mitt. You see Willard, this is what happens when you hang out with Liberals and RINO's for so many years of your life. They will stick the knife in when you least expect it. You just got knifed by who you thought was one of your own.
Do you think a real Conservative would have done you in this way?
Not a chance.
This is your chance Willard. This is your chance to rid yourself of the RINO's, the Liberals around you, and embrace the grassroots Conservatives and Tea Party groups who are going to have to ride in and save your ass and THE DAY.
The tape is getting play on every network, every web site, Twitter etc...you can't walk this one back.
It's too big.
So, Mr. Romney? My question to you is this!
Are you ready to show us your cards? Are you ready to go all in now?
By cards I mean...are you ready to get ugly? Are you ready to start leaking out the stuff you know damn well exists on Barack Obama and his ilk? Are YOU and your INEPT campaign staff ready to release and leak video and audio?
How about college transcripts from Obama? How about documents that millions have been calling to see?
You and your friends have so much cash on hand you could easily roll this Chicago thug up in a second.
So the question begs...why are you playing possum with him and them?
This is your 3 AM wake up call Willard...you better answer the damn phone and show the country your cards because you are about to be swallowed up by a media mafia like you have never seen before.
I’m going to give it an 8.8; that little hop step on the landing hurt your score. The East German judge liked it, though.
None of that stuff is going to help him get more votes than Barack Hussein Obama, which is the goal here, not ideology.
You are wrong. It would take people off the fence. If he shows some balls, he will get more votes. Simple math..
Why should he show YOU his cards? The best way to deal with thugs like Obama and his media liars is to show the cards when it is to our greatest advantage, for example stumping the chump in a debate. He can best go after Obama if Obama doesn’t know what is coming and doesn’t have a handy teleprompter response.
No more McCain taking it on the chin and playing it classy. You have to fight like a Tea Party member because Tea Party members win elections. We make things happen. Mitt has to embrace the movement and his campaign has to reach out to the grassroots.
And the squeaky clean media darling has got to have videos against him rolling 24/7 in every state showing every piece of dirt on him. Romney has played the positive messenger for long enough now.
TAKE THE DAMN GLOVES OFF...
You are acting as if playing rope-a-dope with Obama in debates is the answer here. You are wrong. We did that last time and lost...BIG. This tape is everywhere and more is coming. You fight fire with fire not wait out the other guy while he destroys you around the clock on TV, Radio, and the Internet with clips like these.
I wonder what Mitt and advisor Stuart Steven are discussing right now about the best way to deal with obviously what will be an attempt by the WH and media in making his accurate statement into a controversy and TV ads with sick and disable people saying that they are not lazy and not dependent....etc. The only course of action now is to stick to his statement and rally conservatives and the base, anything else in apologizing or making concessions will doom him and make him look weak. But I fear that he will backtrack, hopefully I’m wrong
Mother Jones tapes? What are those?
David Corn? Who is he?
Goodness gracious; am I that far out of the loop? I have no idea what this is all about.
The Makers [53%] will vote for Romney.
The Takers [47%] will vote for Obama.
So what are YOU? A Maker or a Taker?
On the same page.
A POS democRAT talkin' head.
“You and your friends have so much cash on hand you could easily roll this Chicago thug up in a second.”
He won’t do it, is a wuss.
Someone clue me in here. I don’t have TV anymore (cut it off two weeks ago) and am not finding anything on Drudge related to this .... is there a video posted somewhere to tell me what the hecks’ going on?
As I stated...thrilled he talks this way behind closed doors....but a war has escalated via those words...what is he going to do to combat the flames of hell he is walking through right now?
DO NOT WALK THIS BACK MITT!!!!!! FULL SPEED AHEAD WITH EVERYTHING YOU GOT.
Amen brother, but I’m not expecting much from Romney in the way of conservative action.
He should be APPLAUDED for telling the TRUTH! And, he should do MORE OF IT!!!
I’d give it a 4; It didn’t have a good beat and it wasn’t easy to dance to.
This has to be done in terms of MILLIONS of people, not just a few rich donors here and there!
So far it's not looking good. Romney seems to not have the judgment to differentiate between the good (more votes if you do this) AND the bad (fewer votes if you do that).
That doesn't mean he can't hire the talent to tell him these things but to get that talent he will need to dump his entire campaign staff ~ and friends ~ and get someone on board who knows what he's saying ~ Newt Gingrich could handle it ~
You assume he actually wants to win. I remain unconvinced. Observable evidence is to the contrary.
This is the kind of public discussion that might convince a lot of them to turn out and vote AGAINST ROMNEY.
BTW, the numbers are wrong ~
Agreed but I wanted the people to know where it originally stemmed from.
Hearing Romney may speak tonight.
Why should he show YOU his cards? The best way to deal with thugs like Obama and his media liars is to show the cards when it is to our greatest advantage, for example stumping the chump in a debate. He can best go after Obama if Obama doesnt know what is coming and doesnt have a handy teleprompter response.
Agree. The more time the MSM ! Bent axle have time to twist things the
More confusion there will be.
Nuke em when they least expect it.
Well there ARE people who ‘still don’t know if they will vote for Obama again” or not. At a recent doctor visit I spoke with several in the waiting room.
Multiply that out all across America.
If the man showed some actual non-focus group tested leadership (Balls) those people would not be voting Obama.
So you are suggesting reacting like a marionette to every jab by the media.
The mediaWHORES are pulling the same CHIT they did on Sarah!! FUDGE, are we going to let them decide this election???...THIS IS WAR people!
I don’t see where this video hurts Romney. So long as he doesn’t try to walk it back, the stuff he’s said in these recordings is entirely accurate and probably helps him in the long term.
if they voted for Obama we want them to deal with their doubts by staying home.
Are you kidding me? Show me ONE SINGLE punch Romney has thrown back other than “We Did Build This”.
Nothing else. Not a thing. When you are fighting a war like this you have to throw EVERYTHING you got. 50 days here and the average American doesn’t tune into the debates...they do however log on to Facebook, watch the news throughout the day or the week, log on to Facebook or the net in general and what is sitting on the front page of Yahoo! This story.
The gist of it, from what I can see so far.
Somebody recorded Mitt Romney talking at a private fundraiser where he said two supposedly controversial things, and then released it on “Mother ‘van’ Jones”.com
“If I was Hispanic, things would be easier.”
... pretty obvious that this is just a fact
“I don’t expect the 47% of the country on welfare to vote for me.”
This has been making its rounds on news sites and will likely be blown up by the MSM tomorrow as “Romney hates poor people and old people and military veterans.” Even some Freepers believe this is the case, but some are praising Romney for beating up on government welfare.
It’s a mess.
In my opinion, it was kind of a gaffe, because Romney failed to recognize that not all of the 47% are moochers, though some ARE. Some of those people are vets and the elderly who cannot pay income tax. The statement is too harsh for the general public. It’s not something horrifying, we all can admit to forgetting to take into consideration those that need assistance and deserve it when we get angry with the moochers... BUT... if there is a single conservative, veteran, elderly or otherwise that will not vote against Obama because of this statement, then I must announce this party DOA. Imagine if the DemoRats had the same attitude to Obama’s ridiculous statements. He’d be behind 40 points. Everybody should be willing to crawl through broken glass to kick bozo out, and if that isn’t the case, then we should throw in the towel right now.
My two cents.
If you want a man elected, isn’t it preferable to get more of the opposition voting for him? Getting them to stay home is a good thing as well, but I’d think actual votes to overcoming fraud would help.
That's because the folks who are supposed to be smart ~ AREN'T!
Well written and articulated response.
Well, I agree that he had better not try to apologize or weasel out of it. He said it, and he has to stick to it.
But, frankly, I listened to it, and I think he messed up. Even though this was supposed to be a closed meeting, he has to be more careful.
He SHOULD have said. that the reason there are so many people on the dole is that the Democrats PUT THEM THERE. Not everyone on the dole is there because they choose to be. A lot of people have lost their jobs in the past several years because Obama screwed up the economy.
Sure, some people are on the dole and like it. But even that is the result of Democrats putting them there, by breaking up their families over the past several generations, or by brainwashing them in the public school system.
In other words, don’t point the finger of blame at the people on the dole. Point it at the politicians who put them there. Much smarter, politically.
You can waste a lot of time and money getting Democrats to vote for a Republican. It’s less time consuming and costs less to convince a Democrat to not bother voting.
And those running Romney's campaign are simply, ignorant. And no points for Mitt; not 'getting it'.
Take a page from Allen West; and 'move on' through this. Take a page yet, from Clint. Best defense; a better offensive.
Cicero - you have best response so far. THat is what Romney should say.
All it costs in this case is 5 min explaining that the statement is accurate and that before anyone screams ‘racist’ they should actually disprove his statements with fact. And most important of all, not back down.
If he’s campaigned on this to begin with we’d all be better off.
Are you sure this guy has a grasp on reality?
Unless I misread, his statement was accurate. That people are offended by truth is why we are in this mess.. So the logical conclusion is to stop bullshitting people and speak truthfully.
A country with more employed people generates more tax revenue and has less welfare. Newt or Ronaldus himself would not argue with that on their worst day.
Says who? The polls? Pull yourself together, man. People around here are such gullible pussies - panicking over the enemy's every move.
If we weren't winning, they wouldn't be skewing the polls so heavily. Keep your chin up!
I agree. Romney has appeared “insensitive” All of us know people who’ve been devastated by the Obama “recovery”. I know people with Madters degrees picking up dog crap to pay the rent and collecting food stamps to buy canned tuna fish. I dont fault them for not paying taxes and it’s not like they wouldn’t love to have a paycheck and pay their share.
Many voters aren’t as political as we are - so be it. Romney has just stepped in it big time. Not because what he said isn’t mostly true but because this plays right into the “evil republican, millionaires and billionaires” meme.
The Lamestream are going to absolutely kill him 24/7 with this.
Stupid, stupid stupid
I was under heavy sedation this morning for a colonoscopy and spent the afternoon sleeping off the effects of the sedation yet I know what was meant in the first post. So, yeah, you are a bit behind but at least you are on FR so there is hope.
AN ARMED SOCIETY IS A POLITE SOCIETY AND THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS THE RESET BUTTON FOR THE CONSTITUTION !!!!
