Spurred on by Tokyo Rove and the treasonous GOP-e, the mighty abortionist/homosexualist big government mandate-loving "conservative" Myth Romney destroys all conservatives before him, then rolls over like a dog for the Marxist Obama. But he apologizes for all that now. Governor Perry would've been infinitely better against Obama than Romney. Even Gingrich. But the GOP-e knew better. Never forget!!
I am always reminded of how glad I am that I did not vote for him.
Sadly, I did vote for him, because I thought my not voting would be a vote of sorts for obammy.
True story. Unfortunate that he kind of hosed himself.
He may still have a trick or two up his sleeve though.
Two faced POS!
I voted against Obama in the general, just like I did the last time with McShame. I pray we can get a conservative on the ballot in 2016. This lesser of two evil GOP-e bullshit just is not working out for America.
That he did. Totally self-destructed in the debates and could not recover. Too bad.
I vow on my sacred honor to NEVER forget.
I understand. I feel somewhat sorry for you, I had the opportunity to know about Gary Johnson (a former governor of my State) being the Libertarian Party candidate; so I knew there was a solid person to vote for. Video Link.
I voted for romney also... but that will never happen again. Either the republican party gets “its mind right” or Mark and Sarah will give me someone to VOTE FOR!
I'm sure he's a great guy, but he was a terrible, TERRIBLE candidate, in way over his head - in a primary where the voters wanted to like him.
Of course not, Mr. RomneyCARE.
SHE is a woman and below Mr. RomneyCARE.
Mr. RomneyCARE was not even competing with her.
The SOB was jealous that a woman took his place.
Mr. RomneyCARE has given America ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE,
and Obama-the-Undocumented Terrorist-supporter.
Romney - the Van der Sloot RINO
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
Romney’s fist mistake was not inviting Sarah to speak at any rallies.
I guess Obama somehow reminds you that you are glad you didnt vote for Romney.
The hatred of Romney is unnecessary but whatever he is the least of our problems now.
I don’t think he self-destructed. I think the GOPe wanted him to lose just as they did when McLame ran.
According to the article, Romney called on “self-deportation” of illegal aliens, while Gingrich advocated not separating families who came here illegally, and Perry offered in-state tuition to students regardless of their immigration status.
Romney may have had his shortcomings, but at least in this particular area, Romney seems to have been the toughest one on illegal immigration, in comparison to the other two.
And of course there is no comparison between any of the three vs Obama.
He’s a symptom of the problem with the GOP.
Why would a liberal invite a conservative to his rally?
Yeah I liked Perry for a while until he imploded in that debate and looked like a total dumnass. GOP-E didnt do it. No, he off-ed himself. It’s sad really because Perry is a great American. So we need someone like Perry but without the Doofus sauce.
So tough that he employed illegals to do his yard work. That shows he was just a hypocrit in my book.
Romney’s first mistake was running for governor as a lifelong abortionist/homosexualist big government statist. He Could never recover from that no matter how much he and the GOP-e lied about it. The nation thirsts for a true pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, liberty defending, constitution defending, America defending conservative and will accept no lying pretenders.
This article still makes Perry look like he was giving away the store to Hispanics.
Perry was not.
He was working within the reality of what the Feds have forced on us.
Perry could not even veto the “in state tuition” bill
Which was overwhelmingly passed into law, NOT because we want to give free college to illegals, but because we are stuck with them in Tx due to the Fed.
The Fed says, “you cant deport em,and you must give them education K-12”
So we said, “Do we limit them to HS and have them become potential burdens on the tax payers of Tx? or do we allow them to become productive by affording them the same tuition that we would have given anyone else that lived here all their life?
We chose the later with the caveat that you must become a legalized citizen.
AND continuing to do. The Gang of Four are still thumbing their noses at us.
It's been stated many times before, but I'll repeat one more time.
Perry had just had and was recovering from back surgery. Should he have entered the race, at all, considering his recent surgery? IMO, no. I think he'd have done himself most good by supporting other candidates/issues on the campaign trail and be perfectly set up for 2016.
His "doofus sauce" was temporary...as in pain meds. Have you ever listened to any of Perry's speeches/talks outside of the last presidential debates?
He was also attacked ruthlessly from the beginning.
He was sliced and diced here.
I will never forgive Cain for trying to smear him with the ridiculous niggerhead claim.
DING DING DING!
He jumped the gun in his haste, and took a lot of wind out of Palin’s sails.
But what the articles says is false.
Heck, I would make a better candidate than the names being thrown around.
Do you know the kind of damage you could do to the overreaching federal-agencies just by enforcing laws?
I’ve done well to forgive (or at least shelve) some of that slicing and dicing,
as I kind of figure those who did so felt they were righteous in purpose.
Ate up with the dumbass, but righteous in purpose. So they felt.
I’ve toyed with the idea of a list of all the destructive crap Obama
has done contrasted with a simple statement.. “At least we didn’t get somebody suggesting that evil Gardasil crap!”
Perry’s sin was that he took a calculated political risk to garner the hispanic vote by using the “heartless” line.
He should have stuck to explaining why the bill was passed in Tx.
The heartless comment made the base turn on him in a NY second.
I'm hoping he does.
Actually he does -- Imagine how little resistance to things lile amnesty the GOP would put forth with
their guy in the office. Moreover, they are both Socialists.
The hatred of Romney is unnecessary but whatever he is the least of our problems now.
No; Romney is exactly what is wrong with the GOP: talk and action are utterly discordant.
They are clouds that promise rain, but never give a drop.
Compounding Romney's hypocrisy and history as a Democrat(R) was his endorsement of RomneyCare.
The Vichy RNC/GOP-e committed political hari-kari by running 0dunga-Lite to represent the Party of Reagan.
Cain’s campaign manager accused Perry of being behind the scandal involving that woman. The decent thing would have been for Cain to apologize after it was found to be untrue, but he never did. That right there, along with the niggerhead thing, put me off Cain.
The stench of the GOPe and Jeb Bush is already in the air. I did not vote for Romney, and I will not vote for Jeb Bush, Pork Porkie, or any other GOPe candidate. Period.
He was attacked ruthlessly.
Bachmann was first out of the gate.
I really wanted to like ol Herman.
Remember when Newt and Cain were tag teaming Perry?
Because the RINOS lost, they go crawling off to the enemy to ask them why.
And the enemy wisely gives them bad advice,and, being stupid RINOS they fall for it.
I supported Romney because I felt he was better than Obama
I will NEVER vote RINO again. I will only vote conservative,and, if the GOP is stupid enough to believe they can win elections by running Democrat Lite, the GOP deserves to die. And I in my own little way will help tfhe process withmy vote.
By then it was too late. I do think he would have done a lot different in the voters eyes had he done well earlier.
Yes - that rings a bell. However delivering a speech is nothing like responding in a presidential debate. I wasn’t that impressed with him in any of the debates. He always had a deer in the headlights kind of look. Maybe it was pain meds. If so thats a shame.
Somewhat irrelevant. Romney could have doubled his level of Hispanic support and still lost. And none of the GOP candidates would have received enough Hispanic votes to make a difference. The difference-making votes were with other demographics. I have become resigned to the fact that this country isn’t white enough to defeat a hipster, Marxist, half black community organizer.
It was a lot of things.
I admit he was not ready for prime time, but he is the real deal.
Well, just look at the stats. How many voters just stayed home? And most of them were white. The lesser of two evils just doesn’t turnout the would be republican voters.
