Pssst, Mitt! Read this before Wednesday's debate
American Thinker ^ | 09/30/2012 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 09/30/2012 5:58:21 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

While Mitt hunkers down with Rob Portman preparing for the Big Debate #1, the finest minds of the conservative blogosphere are explicating the themes that could win the debate for him, narratives that go to the heart of what is wrong with Obama's tenure in office.

Daniel P. Goldman, who also writes under the pen name Spengler, has explained in clear language the Obama sand in the gears that cripples our economy. He uses an excellent rhetorical device to do so, positing three groups of Americans

From PJ Media:

Our first case is one of five million Americans unemployed for more than 27 weeks:

A second American is part owner of a $20 trillion investment fund.

A third American is terrified that her pension fund will go bust (as the Illinois teachers' fund will some time during the next ten years, among many others).

He explains that American #2 won't invest in companies that would hire #1. The problem is that Americans are no longer investing in each other. It is the pension funds and other vehicles for retirement savings which dominate capital markets, and right now they only invest in safe instruments, low-yielding but less risky securities. The reasons are pretty clear:

We have the highest corporate tax rate in the world.

We have an administration that sandbagged one of the biggest contributions to energy independence to become available in decades, namely the Keystone project.

We have a regulatory environment that makes it next to impossible to build a nuclear power plant.

We have a health care program that puts the biggest weight of a new entitlement program right on the economy's weak spot - firms with fifty workers.

We have an administration that can't get its act together to steer the economy away from a fiscal cliff.

Granted, I'm not voting for the guy, but he got where he is with the team he has.

The same bloggers that are now offering advice were snapping at his heels, not long ago.

I expect he'll ignore the blogosphere and do what has worked for him in the past.

OK, let me get this straight, your not voting for Romney but you’ll vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, socialized medicine, large government liberal. Do I have that right?

I've listed my 4 basics so many times that I've been told to 'just shut up'.

Pro-life. Killing children, even unborn children is wrong.

Pro-gun. God gave man the right of self defense. The 2nd Amendment noted that.

Anti-socialized medicine. I've seen those evil results of well intentioned meddling.

Pro small government. We are supposed to have a government of limited power, according to the Constitution.

Those are them. Make the most of it. Still not voting for any liberal (R) or (D).

Maybe Romney can borrow Bi-bi’s bomb diagram, and call it the national debt. Except I think the U.S. is probably at about 190% already, the red line was no doubt Nov 2008.

Dude, you're more than welcome to vote for whatever principles you have. But, as an outsider who supposedly looks at Romney with lesser ideals than you, you have just convinced other outsiders looking upon you as someone who does not even stand for the principles you have just spouted. In other words, you're willing to give up your freedom because the candidate you want isn't there.

Well, boo de frickin' hoo hoo.

My candidate isn't there either. But I don't want to be a LIBERAL in my so-called CONSERVATIVE IDEALS waiting for the perfect candidate. Yeah, johnny, I'm calling you a LIBERAL, because like a some lady willing to give up her freedom over a man giving her a free cell phone, your willing to give you your freedom awaiting for some ideal knight on a shining horse to come and save your @ss.

A perfect conservative would be nice, but as a public official, it is ultimately up to WE, THE PEOPLE, to hold him, and any other elected official, accountable.

If you don' want to vote for Romney because he's not your ideal, but at least for our country's sake, vote for Romney for another principle: Holding Obama, and any other liberal out there, accountable!

As a reminder to everyone, our government officials work for US! It is our DUTY to hold them accountable!

And, I would like to remind all of you so-called "I'm not voting for Romney because of my principles" people out there: Even Reagan was a democrat at one point. Chew on that thought before you willingly risk any semblance of freedom and liberty you have by letting the Worst President In History win re-election!

Pro-life. Killing children, even unborn children is wrong.

Since abortion techniques were widely known in biblican times, why didn't the bible directly address the topic if it is completely wrong as you assert?

Pro-gun. God gave man the right of self defense. The 2nd Amendment noted that.

Do you believe that right includes being able to walk into a store and buy landmines, claymores, mortars, artillery pieces and a 500lb MK82?

Anti-socialized medicine. I've seen those evil results of well intentioned meddling.

Do you believe the socialized medicine provided to members of the armed forces is well intentioned but evil?

Pro small government. We are supposed to have a government of limited power, according to the Constitution.

Do you believe we should not have food inspection?

Still not voting for any liberal (R) or (D).

Did you ever consider that Romney may be much more conservative than his Massachusetts record suggests but he had to make some compromises in order to steer Massachusetts politics away from a hard left course?

The United States Government borrowed military equipment, including cannons, from civilians during the Revolution.

US civilians sent rifles and shotguns to England during WWII (later dumped in the north sea).

Yeah.. every terrible instrument of war belongs to the individual.

As far as your first point... You explain to God how aborting a baby is a GoodThing(tm).

You really reached.

Military medical care is an evil thing, in a lot of cases.

I suppose you think abortion is ok, the 2nd amendment is negotiable, socialized medicine is fine, and government should control everything...

At least with Romney...and a Congress We the People force to answer to us, have a HOPE of Constitutional Restoration through the ballot box.

The ideological selfishness many display has a very real potential for rendering such Constitutional Restoration only through the cartridge box.....thereby depriving their countrymen of HOPE and POSSIBILITY.

If it does come to the cartridge box...each and every one of us posting here..may well already have their name on a list for the midnight knock ....with which Obama will attempt to precede the inevitable.

Ya haf to understand the Dems see politics as a broken-bottle, knife and gun, bar-room brawl...in other words “war” for survival...

On the battlefield...nobody is standing around quoting ideology.

I may not agree much with Romney ....but unlike Obama, he DOES have the executive skills and experience to get the job done.

I sure do wish it’d been Palin , however..

Great theory.

In theory, theory and practice are the same, in practice, they aren't.

How's that theory stuff working out with the pubbie house? Arrests made with Fast and Furious? Indictments? Special Counsel? Anything?

Blocking NPR funding? No?

Shutting down the EPA? Slowing them down? Slowing down their rate of growth? No?

Didn't think so.

I think we can all agree that if Roms had listened to and stayed truer to the blogosphere, instead of paid consultants and pollsters, he would be doing much better. We all know that the conservative blogosphere really taps into the ideas behind the true american conservatism that this country needs.

Well, civilians can still own and operate those old cannon.

You wrote: US civilians sent rifles and shotguns to England during WWII (later dumped in the north sea).

What prevents you from disassembling an old shotgun, packaging it up and shipping it to someone in England?

You wrote: Yeah.. every terrible instrument of war belongs to the individual.

So you are just fine knowing that your hard partying neighbors who heat their home with space heaters are allowed to purchase and store any type munition in their townhouse next to you?

You wrote:As far as your first point... You explain to God how aborting a baby is a GoodThing(tm).

My understanding is that most pregnancies naturally abort. Of the problem pregnancies such as a deformed child that are brought to term, the bible doesn't directly address the topic but it's safe to say that in biblical times, they didn't live very long.

You wrote: You really reached.

Such reaching is necessary given the chasm that separates us.

You wrote: I suppose you think abortion is ok, the 2nd amendment is negotiable, socialized medicine is fine, and government should control everything...

Assuming you are being honest and forthright, you've never voted, not even for Reagan.

My one piece of advice for Romney is to not let Obama get away with diversion discussion. If Obama tries this ploy Romney should without hesitation call him out. You can bet that Obama will try to control the course of a debate with smart alec remarks.

Oh.. about the terrible instruments of war... That was a partial quote from a founding father.

"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American...[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."

“Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated. The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress either Republican or Democrat in his second term, but rather to force his radical agenda on the American people through the power he has usurped or been granted.” ~Steve McCann

You’re all over the (FR) place. Do you think that if Romney’s views on the issues you listed matched yours, the policies of his administration would be markedly different than they are presumably going to be?

I am asking, because I don’t believe they would. I don’t believe they would because I expect that Mitt the POTUS will be surrounded by pretty much the same people who would surround any of his 8 primary competitors had they won. There is a limited number of candidates for these positions, and they are for the most part East Coast moderates who graduated from the same 3-4 universities. No right wing radicals need apply. That and the Congress will the the same as President Gingrich’s Congress would be. My opinion.
