'We would rather lose with you than win with anyone else' (Matt Rhoades, Mitt's failed campaign mgr)
Mail Online ^ | 11/11/12 | Daily Mail

Posted on 11/11/2012 4:18:35 PM PST by jimbo123

According to ABC, campaign manager Matt Rhoades told Romney: 'We would rather lose with you than win with anyone else.'

Colleagues also stood and clapped for Rhoades and Mitt's 'Body Man,' Garrett Jackson who often tweeted behind-the-scenes pictures during his many hours at Romney's side on the campaign trail.

The defeat was a stunning blow to the Republican camp who had been confident they would win even in the last few hours of the campaign.

Wow, the guy admits Mitt was a loosing candidate, but didn’t care as long as they kept a right winger from winning.

This is why we need to keep these guys out of the party.

Matt Rhoades intentionally sabotaged the Romney campaign for the Jeb Bush 2016 team. He’s always been a Ken Mehlman Bushie since his days at the RNC and will be well taken care of from now until 2016.

Yeah, savage Newt Gingrich in order to gain the nomination, then play paddy-cake with Barry in the general. Worked for McCain in 2008 didn’t it?

Tends to correspond somewhat with my longstanding suspicion that, given the choice, the GOP-E and the whole DC Republican Party leadership elite are far more comfortable with Obama remaining president than having a genuine conservative/Tea Party leader attain the office.

I just don’t have the words to describe how much I despise the loathesome GOP-E scum. I’m SO ready for a new party.

The GOP insiders are only good at being in the opposition. Once they actually win by some luck, they have no idea what to do from there.

Never forget. Matt Drudge did the dirty work for his BFF Matt Rhoades during the primaries. I don't know whether Drudge is one of Jeb Bush's saboteurs, but he is just as contemptible as his BFF Matt Rhoades.

Matt Rhoades isn’t gay. In fact, he TOOK A VACATION from the campaign this summer to GET MARRIED prior to the convention. You’d think he’d could have waited until AFTER the election to get married. And he married an operative for Chris Christie!

And Drudge was jealous over the whole thing.

Mitt attended Matt Rhoades wedding during the summer! He didn’t fire him. He gave Rhoades and his Chris Christie operative wife a wedding gift!

"Matt Rhoades intentionally sabotaged the Romney campaign for the Jeb Bush 2016 team. He’s always been a Ken Mehlman Bushie since his days at the RNC and will be well taken care of from now until 2016."

Then let Jeb go down in flames like Mitt.  We got nothing to lose now.  We've already lost the country.  Might as well stand completely on conservative principle now.  Maybe this was God's purpose in all of this dread.  To get people off the fence and take a stand.  I won't be voting for any more RINOs.  Mitt was the last one.
 
Let the Repubs keep going to the left chasing after abortion voters, homosexual voters, entitlement voters and illegal alien voters.  They have lost this conservative voter.  If they win by running another progressive RINO any time in the next 20 years, it won't be with my help.

I thought for sure someone was going to say that, with the anointing of Romney (from before the primaries, remember) the GOP-e brought a waffle to a gunfight.

Too smart by 1/2; the whole Romney team was wrong on 2 things: 1) Mitt wasn’t a conservative (and refused to run that way).

2) It’s the “grassroots”, stupid! They relied upon their “high tech” micro-programming (LAZY) rather than the old fashioned way of door knocking, and calling everyone.

IDIOTS..

those who noticed, Mitt was like this from day 1. (against grassroots activities) When Fred Thompson dropped out of NH in ‘08, a group of us in western NH hit every town for McCain to beat Mitt. Mitt’s strategy was to do everything from central Hdqtrs in Boston/Manchester.

The locals notice when you don’t show up. Some of the little towns, we smoked Mitt by 3 to 1 even though it was close statewide.

In ‘12, Mitt finished 3rd place in western NH small towns behind Huntsman and ronPaul. Mitt does suburbs, but never small towns.

OH FL VA IA WS CO NV ... do any of those swing states have small towns?

It’s telling when (Bendict Carl Rove) was more successful with GW than Mitt Romney and that even McCain (Sarah Palin)! was more effective..

On the positive side it may open up a few hearts to the truth of Jesus Christ-the Gospel as stated in the Bible, and away from the “church” of LDS-now that their “White Horse prophecy” has failed! -JS
