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.
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.
