DON'T TRASH REAGAN TO SAVE ROMNEY
Brietbart ^ | Monday November 26, 2012 | By JENNY BETH MARTIN

Posted on 11/26/2012 4:30:15 PM PST by Bigtigermike

Ann Coulter, a long-time cheerleader for Mitt Romney, recently trashed the legacy of Ronald Reagan – and Americans who honor the legacy of Ronald Reagan – in a desperate attempt to deflect blame for Romney’s loss away from the candidate, and away from those who backed him.

Movement conservatives, Reagan conservatives, and tea partiers did not back Gov. Romney in the Republican primaries. Despite misgivings, when the GOP establishment chose Romney, these patriotic conservatives did not sulk or stay home. They walked through fire for Romney and formed the backbone of his base and ground game. They gave their all to their country, they volunteered their time, they donated what they could to a candidate they did not choose, and they voted for him. Why? Because they put the future of the country ahead of their own personal interests.

Which is something Ann Coulter may want to try. What did these millions of Reagan conservatives and tea party conservatives get in return for their time, dedication, and votes? They got shut out and ignored at the GOP convention (the words “tea party” were never mentioned), and now they’re getting blamed for Romney’s loss by his #1 cheerleader, Ann, whose latest screed “ROMNEY WAS NOT THE PROBLEM” also slammed the legacy of Ronald Reagan.

This is ironic, because Ann’s candidate rarely missed an opportunity to wrap himself in Ronald Reagan’s legacy for his own benefit.

People should not trash Reagan and people should quit trashing Romney. Romney is irrelevant now. He’s just a guy with a beach house. Leave him alone.

Never heard the word tea party. Never saw Sarah Palin. Never saw an ad or mention about the dems booing God at the convention. Never saw an ad or mention of Obama denying aid to babies that survive abortion or his support for homosexual marriage (which even liberal California and Maryland are nearly 50% opposed to)

But the reason he lost was because he was too conservative and needed to moderate his message....LOL

Expecting voters to know what’s going on and their reliance on MSM is just part of why our great loss. While there are examples of fraud which may close up the gap, the gap is too big to blame the loss on fraud ...Expecting GOP E’s to address media bias or Romney to call Obama a congenital liar or even point out that the fact and figures released by the white house were allways questionable is another Let alone call him a “socialist”..

But the fault lies really in the messaging the Republican campaign came up with choking on political correctness parameters or triping over past positions on global warming and Romneycare both of which were bread and butter issues. .Then busy responding to pseudo positions devised by the demo-com party and echoed by their hand maiden camp followers in the media allowing them to set the agenda ..

Romney ran a “Johnny One Note Campaign”. Used a poison dart blow gun when he should have used a cannon loaded with grape shot because he had pleanty of stuff he could fill that cannon barrel with..

They failed to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama past due 2013/14 Tax Increases. The impact of Obama’s gagging energy.resources.(a socialist construct never branded as such) with policies requiring reliance on intermittent sources wind and solar and that resulted in massive corruption .,restricted use of drilling, and coal ,bans and on fracking, and resulting prices doubling on everything.. This was a bread and butter issue which reached into every “demographics” pocketbook including accepting the demo-com definition of hyphenated African-Hispanic -Americans .

Then there os the impact of Supreme Court Appointments.. 18,000 new IRS agents and on and on. . Some were very briefly touched most weren’t and Benghazi/ foreign policy was left to languish. Then there is Obama’s personal extravagance and behavior refusing to visit Nashville after its disaster showing up at New Orleans after Mitt visited it. Even after the Christi thing if that was brought up it would have blunted the impact.

Instead we got a sales pitch on executive ability but not the reason why one should toss the old model and buy his. That print and tv pitch , 20 million new jobs, was given a discrarded dose of skepticism .

In addition Rove who I understand was handling the Charter PAC senate campaign played games. His material never warned voters that IF OBAMA GETS RE-ELECTED AND SENATE CONTROL REMAINED . .. OBAMACARE AND ALL THE TAX INCREASES THAT GO WITH IT WILL NEVER GET REPEALED Let alone tie into or cover the formentioned grape shot which would have perhaps changed that body. I don’t recall any of that material directed toward that fact.

Finally they didn’t believe the polls which turned out were dead on. Even going as far as setting up focus groups which could have looked into what’s going on . Even to the point of going out to local eateries and bars and eavesdrop into conversations and pick up on topics being discussed.(chat rooms twitter too contrived) They would have learned their turnout projections were off and the sence of urgency to get out the vote was diminished by their glowing projections and disbelief never mind ORCA which should have been tested. COMPLACENCY WAS ENCOURAGED BY THE MEDIA AND NOT COUNTER ACTED UPON

Our local small population (-8000) rural blue county GOP had at the outset good and growing attendence at their meetings 50 plus. At the meeting the Thursday before the election only about a dozen people showed up and I knew we were in trouble .

Nuts...This loss is inexcuseable, while I trully don’t believe Mitt Romney would ever continence losing, I’m begining to believe that most GOPE’s really didn’t want to see AHCA, (affordable health care act) otherwise known as ZerO care go.

“He’s just a guy with a beach house”

Well, it’s like Carla Bruni says, “A woman belongs in one of her houses.”

Steyn said today that it costs 1.4 billion to transport and fly and feed and attend to the needs of Moochelle and hubby. The Queen and all the royalty of England somehow manage on $56 million a year.

The Obummers spend more of our money than all the royalty of Europe.

Ann, whose latest screed “ROMNEY WAS NOT THE PROBLEM” also slammed the legacy of Ronald Reagan.

There were a lot of factors but if I had to pick one single factor that affected the outcome more than any other it would be Romney's image. I thought Romney did better than I expected of such a RINO but he couldn't get rid of the slick rich used car salesman image. Ann, yes, Romney was the problem and I am not sure there is anything he could have done to change his image.

I believe Romney is done with politics. Of course, in 2016, he will probably play as large a role in the GOP convention as McCain did in 2012, but like I said, he is done with politics.

Romney lost because the Dems have mastered the ground game and turnout effort. People that used to stay home now turn out for the guy who the Dem machine “suggests”. Simple as that.

The only ones trashing conservatives are Romney and his fellow left wing supporters. Conservatives are only trashing the country’s most dangerous enemy, the GOPe.

???????????????

Actually Reagan lost once -- maybe twice depending on how you count these things -- before he won.

I don't think Ann was trashing Reagan. She was pointing out that things weren't as simple as some people think.

One can always make the response that Reagan was still a better candidate than Romney or that Romney was the problem.

But that is why my support really went to Michelle Bachmann and, then, Newt Gingrich. Incidentally, I posted an article by Don Feder about Romney losing despite any debates and I received many negative comments from freepers for the article, complaining about the purists.

Romney is irrelevant now.

He's the man who took the best chance to change the direction this country was headed and tossed it away. He is the face of opposition, at least in the public eye. Never mind the fact that there was little opposition in him as things turned out.

I know that many of the statements in this article are true. Our tea party worked very hard to get out the conservative vote even though we did not like the top candidate. Every turn, the GOP-e closed the door on us in Tampa. Ann is making excuses because her credibility is on the line. If people cannot see that she was belittling President Reagan, then nothing will wake them up. She has become twisted. Sorry, I cannot follow her. This is it.. when she went on TV and slammed, Palin, Newt and now Reagan plus going off into the fringe land. I have plenty of conservative friends. None of them are fringe. Rush said Newt would be the one to bring big solutions to Washington. He and Palin would had been the perfect ticket. It would have given inspiration to people in thinking big reforms were coming along with putting Bernanke under investigation. Now, we are stuck with no reforms, only more spending with higher taxes, less freedom and a CIC who is not loyal to the country. It's Gop-e hands all over this and Ann was the most loyal cheerleader of all for them and Mittens.

DON'T TRASH REAGAN TO SAVE ROMNEY

Well; MORMONism 'trashes' all of Christianity; so what is to be expected??



Questions put to Joseph Smith: "'Do you believe the Bible?' [Smith:]'If we do, we are the only people under heaven that does, for there are none of the religious sects of the day that do'. When asked 'Will everybody be damned, but Mormons'? [Smith replied] 'Yes, and a great portion of them, unless they repent, and work righteousness." (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 119).
Joseph Smith: "for the teachers of religion of the different sects understood the same passages of scripture so differently as to destroy all confidence in settling the question by an appeal to the Bible" (from Pearl of Great Price 1:12). "What is it that inspires professors of Christianity generally with a hope of salvation? It is that smooth, sophisticated influence of the devil, by which he deceives the whole world" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.270).
 
 
 
Brigham Young stated this repeatedly: "When the light came to me I saw that all the so-called Christian world was grovelling in darkness" (Journal of Discourses 5:73); "The Christian world, so-called, are heathens as to the knowledge of the salvation of God" (Journal of Discourses 8:171); "With a regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world" (Journal of Discourses 8:199); "And who is there that acknowledges [God's] hand? ...You may wander east, west, north, and south, and you cannot find it in any church or government on the earth, except the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.24); "Should you ask why we differ from other Christians, as they are called, it is simply because they are not Christians as the New Testament defines Christianity" (Journal of Discourses 10:230).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt proclaimed: "Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the 'whore of Babylon' whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness. Any person who shall be so corrupt as to receive a holy ordinance of the Gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent" (The Seer, p. 255).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt also said: "This great apostasy commenced about the close of the first century of the Christian era, and it has been waxing worse and worse from then until now" (Journal of Discourses
, vol.18, p.44) and: "But as there has been no Christian Church on the earth for a great many centuries past, until the present century, the people have lost sight of the pattern that God has given according to which the Christian Church should be established, and they have denominated a great variety of people Christian Churches, because they profess to be ...But there has been a long apostasy, during which the nations have been cursed with apostate churches in great abundance" (Journal of Discourses , 18:172).
 
 
President John Taylor stated: "Christianity...is a perfect pack of nonsense...the devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work than the Christianity of the nineteenth century." (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.167); "Where shall we look for the true order or authority of God? It cannot be found in any nation of Christendom." (Journal of Discourses , 10:127).
 
 
 
James Talmage said: "A self-suggesting interpretation of history indicates that there has been a great departure from the way of salvation as laid down by the Savior, a universal apostasy from the Church of Christ". (A Study of the Articles of Faith, p.182).
 
 
 
President Joseph Fielding Smith said: "Doctrines were corrupted, authority lost, and a false order of religion took the place of the gospel of Jesus Christ, just as it had been the case in former dispensations, and the people were left in spiritual darkness." (Doctrines of Salvation, p.266). "For hundreds of years the world was wrapped in a veil of spiritual darkness, until there was not one fundamental truth belonging to the place of salvation ...Joseph Smith declared that in the year 1820 the Lord revealed to him that all the 'Christian' churches were in error, teaching for commandments the doctrines of men" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 3, p.282).
 
 
 
More recent statements by apostle Bruce McConkie are also very clear: "Apostasy was universal...And this darkness still prevails except among those who have come to a knowledge of the restored gospel" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol 3, p.265); "Thus the signs of the times include the prevailing apostate darkness in the sects of Christendom and in the religious world in general" (The Millennial Messiah, p.403); "a perverted Christianity holds sway among the so-called Christians of apostate Christendom" (Mormon Doctrine, p.132); "virtually all the millions of apostate Christendom have abased themselves before the mythical throne of a mythical Christ whom they vainly suppose to be a spirit essence who is incorporeal uncreated, immaterial and three-in-one with the Father and Holy Spirit" (Mormon Doctrine, p.269); "Gnosticism is one of the great pagan philosophies which antedated Christ and the Christian Era and which was later commingled with pure Christianity to form the apostate religion that has prevailed in the world since the early days of that era." (Mormon Doctrine, p.316).
 
 
 
President George Q. Cannon said: "After the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, there were only two churches upon the earth. They were known respectively as the Church of the Lamb of God and Babylon. The various organizations which are called churches throughout Christendom, though differing in their creeds and organizations, have one common origin. They all belong to Babylon" (Gospel Truth, p.324).
 
 
President Wilford Woodruff stated: "the Gospel of modern Christendom shuts up the Lord, and stops all communication with Him. I want nothing to do with such a Gospel, I would rather prefer the Gospel of the dark ages, so called" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 2, p.196).

Since you asked:

"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned;

and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given,

and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.

...a difficult choice for you.

I used to adore her - on several levels. But, for some time it has bothered me that she seems to absolutely relish the ad hominem attack, and that seems to be the only tool in her kit.

I think I have two of her books, including the one on Joseph McCarthy. Her book is ok at best, but if you want a serious read on that subject, try M. Stanton Evans’s book.

Well there was a power play between Weinberger (Along with his #1 lackey, General Powell, lol, who did not want to ruffle the feathers of Muslims) and Shultz (who wanted to decimate the Muslims) . Reagan decided to go in but use the non-aggressive force that was urged by Weinberger/Powell. These two fools convinced Reagan to go in soft, hence Reagan was ultimately responsible for that idiotic decision.

Reagan was nice but Harding/Coolidge were to tops of limited government Presidents in the 20th Century. If Herbert "The Moderate" Hoover was not such a Statist, the Harding/Coolidge era would have shined even brighter. Goes to show you of how moderates can really screw up a good situation.

Donate them to your local library--she won't like that, especially if they make it into the collection.

At a book signing, I told her that since I had a say in collection development at the library where I worked, I would make sure her book was added to our collection. To my surprise, she expressed disappointment, saying that sales would be hurt if the book was available in the public library.

I found this attitude to be rather short-sighted. Most authors want their books in public library collections, and many go to considerable efforts to convince libraries to purchase their books and to get patrons to check them out and read them.

"Romney lost because the Dems have mastered the ground game and turnout effort. People that used to stay home now turn out for the guy who the Dem machine “suggests”. Simple as that."

Ann writes entertaining polemics, which gives her f-u money to go out on cable and pop off about anything, at which she is decidedly less entertaining than her books.

And her personal life is a real piece of work, a book in itself...

I don’t think that the President of the United States set the policy for the Marines guarding the gates to their own base, to keep the magazines out of their rifles.

Besides, the security of the Marine headquarters should not depend solely on two guys having to insert a magazine before trying to stop a truck coming to blow up the high rise barracks and kill 241 people.

she expressed disappointment..........rofl

Well then, I may just have to add to her grief. Going over tomorrow, I will see just how many they already have. One on the shelf is more than enough, lol

I know they have plenty of O'Reilly's books, best used as a fire starter now.

Mostly I think the libraries can't even give these books away themselves.
