RUSH: I just read another op-ed ripping Romney to shreds. You know, Romney's out there saying that Obama really had a great bribery operation going. And Bobby Jindal just went nuts when Romney said that. In fact, here let me grab this. Let me find them. This is Romney on Wednesday, conference call, campaign donors.
ROMNEY: It's a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money from the government to a group, and guess what, they'll vote for you. Let me tell you what I would do if I were a Democrat running four years from now, I'd say, "You know what, dental care will be included in Obamacare." Immigration we can solve, but the giving away free stuff is a hard thing to compete with.
RUSH: Okay. I mean, Santa Claus. It is. Apparently it is dire, Romney saying this. Apparently this is a big problem for the Republican Party. We're not supposed to look at people this way. People are just insecure. It's a bad economy. And if somebody's promised security, workers, they can't find jobs, they're not takers and so forth. We're never gonna win anything if we look at people that way. Grab Baracka Claus is Coming to Town. We gotta put that in here. 'Cause my whole Santa Claus theory is obviously now under attack by other Republicans. I don't know how long this will last, so here it is.

You didn't defend yourselves! You didn't fight back against the lies. The Bush economy was not a disaster. The Obama economy was the disaster. Bush came out of two recessions. The Bush tax rates, the Republicans still won't speak up for 'em. The Bush tax rates enabled a really robust -- we had 4.7% unemployment through much of the Bush economy. People don't know it because every day for six years the media was saying we're in a recession or we're heading to a recession, and you had Katrina on top of it. The media was trying to convince the people of this country for six years while we had 4.7% unemployment that we're in the middle of a recession, or at the beginning of one, the economy stinks, it's horrible. And because of whatever thinking that existed from the White House on down, none of those charges were ever answered, they were never defended against."
The brain dead idiots running the GOP don’t have a clue about the truth. This is why we keep losing & probably will from now on. The RINOs & establishment big shot GOP dummies have destroyed our party.
Imagine the GOP attacking Mitt Romney for saying something too conservative.
Anyway, the GOP is done.
Republicans might try speaking truth, as did Churchill, by simply substituting the word "Party for the word "nation" in the last sentence.
Romney is pretending to criticize the Democrats. They buy their victories by bribing the voters.
The only trouble with that is that the GOPe thinks they can do the same. Tax and spend and tell the voters whatever they want to hear to make them feel good. Anything but the truth.
And I pretty much shut up about what I thought about Romney over the final months before the election, since there was no longer any alternative on offer. But, regretably, Romney’s record speaks for itself. As governor of Taxachusetts, he competed with the Democrats to give the libs whatever they wanted: government healthcare, gay marriage, taxpayer funded abortion and contraception, sex-change operations for criminals on the taxpayer’s dime, and so forth.
Odd how that just ended up empowering the Democrats in Massachusetts even more.
It’s jarring that while RINO Romney is telling the truth like a conservative, the rest of the 2016 contenders are blowing smoke like a bunch of libs.. if this continues boy are we in for another disapointer in 2016..hell, if that’s the case is rather have Romney again.... I really really hope this is not the case.
Cicero, that’s a great observation. Romney ran Massachusetts as a moderate Democrat would. The result has been that the state moved to full Democrat control. We previously has a string of Republican governors, but not it is a Democrat perpetually in the Governor’s Mansion. This is the result of capitulating to their agenda.
How would your record look as governor of Massachusetts?
This whle thing reminds me of our election for class presidient in 7th grade. The winning candidate won on a platform of providing soda machines in every class and no homework allowed over weekends.
BTW, anyone think he kept those promises?
Yes, the gop is the 21st century equivalent of the Whigs. But it was never “our” party. It was sold out to the gop-e many years ago.
I look forward to the gop demise. Something better will come to replace it. And conservatives might actually find themselves with representation. That’ll be something new and exciting and far better than the ever present dread of knowing that you’re about to be sold out by those who claim to be your allies.
Lol, probably not I’m guessing.. good platform for a 7th grader though. I wonder if he’s a card carrying Democrat today..
I believe if the GOP ends.. you are right, conservatives will have more of a voice in a new party.. they will also be marginalized and it will be a minority party with little real power. U.S. citizens are pretty much statists now and only statist type GOP (Bush anyone) can win.. even Romney couldn’t because he was too capitalist..very sad. The question is would you rather (try to) influence a larger party closer to your beliefs or capitulate to the DNC and break the Republican party into smaller factions?
It’s called the end of the wicked system of things. Most of us knew it was coming, but perhaps hoped, prayed we would not be a part of it. Well we are. And we must prepare ourselves. One thing I am telling my friends and family is DO NOT get the “mark”. It’s coming. Better to die in His grace than to side with evil.
The GOP is full of weak politicians. ONLY CONSERVATIVES have FIRE in the BELLY and the GOP shun conservatives. GOP is too PC to be any good! PC covers a lie.
Conservatives EXPOSE the lie and that’s considered by the ‘GOP weak elite’ to be ‘too radical and you can’t win minds/votes that way’! BS! The unteachable just never learn.
What’s Jindal’s problem?
She has her eyes glued on the prize and ready for it. Whoever opposed her I believed has reaped what they have sowed.
Yeah but our culture no longer likes it when conservatives “expose the lies” only liberals are venerated for that now. Look, if the culture has changed so much that even the squishy GOP can’t win, what hope is there that a hardline conservative party can? I mean this is ridiculous... we got the GOP berating Romney for saying something too conservative... Romney.. wow.
Don’t believe Romney will run again. The entire Republican party decided that King Obama was a better choice so they sat on their collective asses and did nothing much to at least get the White House. GOP is as bad as the Democratic Party and many of the republican voters are pure crazy to have gone the route they did. Now they will bitch while King Obama and the Senate kills America.
