Posted on 06/03/2011 7:47:45 AM PDT by donjuanluis07
In case you missed the lead story yesterday, likely because you were following the Weiner Saga, Mitt Romney is running for President. Though he had a hard time defeating Huckabee last timeand whom he seems to have an ongoing feud with, Romney seems to be thinking that all the major issues that plauged his last candidacy have evaporated and the only real issue the Conservative Republican base has with him is RomneyCare. This could not be further from the truth. The list of Romney's problems is a long one, so buckle up.

In 2008, Romney earned himself a reputation as a flip-flopper as he dramatically attempted to reshape himself as a stanch conservative despite having previously staked out liberal positions on abortion, guns, immigration and a litany of other issues.However, the American Spectator's analysis of Romney pales in comparison to the Wall Street Journal's departure from usual Republican Establishment backslapping (though John O'Sullivan did give Palin a strong defense and the journal sometimes swerves into other corners of truth). In what both our President and winos refer to as a moment of clarity, the Wall Street Journal's editorial provides what amounts to be the most damning indictment of the Romney candidacy:
The problem is not that Mr. Romney is willing to reconsider his former thinking. Nor is it so much that his apparent convictions always seem in sync with the audience to which he is speaking at the moment. ... Plenty of politicians attune their positions to new constituencies. The larger danger is that Mr. Romney's conversions are not motivated by expediency or mere pandering but may represent his real governing philosophy. [Emphasis mine]Mitt doesn't care much for the great state of Texas or Houston as on one visit to the city he said, "This is what happens when you dont have zoning.
He is a believer in global warming and supports Cap and Trade if it is done globally as opposed to just nationally.
Mitt helped raise money for Planned Parenthood.
Romney changed his rhetoric on Gay Rights after having made overtures toward the Log Cabin Republicans in exchange for their endorsement. They were none too pleased.
Proof that Romney is both a true politician and a bothersome oaf comes beautifully packaged in his succinct yet immature usage of the English language on Gun Control. "Weapons of unusual lethality?" Really?
Romney picked more Democrats than Republicans when the time came to pick judicial nominees. This will obviously be different when the time comes to pick Supreme Court Nominees, of course.
Sen. Scott Brown supports Romney's defense of RomneyCare calling it "courageous."

The Important segments from Romney's Debate with Ted Kennedy, with one of the best endings to a debate.
And we did all of that with only mentioning RomneyCare once. Now many folks get all caught up in the whole healthcare aspect of the Constitutionality of mandating buying and selling, which started that whole Revolutionary War thingy. Be that as it may, a much more devastating critique of the program falls from the lips of the State of Massachusetts Treasurer, Timothy P. Cahill. He says:
As state treasurer, I can speak with authority about the Massachusetts pilot program. It has been a fiscal train wreck.This will be the nail in the coffin for the Romney Presidential bid. Romney's failure to properly plan and prepare his state for the costs associated with government intrusion into the healthcare market is proof that he does not have the adequte executive competence to command the office of the President of the United States.
The universal insurance coverage we adopted in 2006 was projected to cost taxpayers $88 million a year. However, since this program was adopted in 2006, our health-care costs have in total exceeded $4 billion. The cost of Massachusetts' plan has blown a hole in the Commonwealth's budget. Just last Thursday, Gov. Deval Patrick's office announced a $294 million shortfall related to health-care costs.
If not for federal Medicaid reimbursements and commitments from Washington to prop up this plan, Massachusetts would be broke. The only reason MassCare has survived is that we have been repeatedly bailed out by the federal government.
The GOP is sick. It needs an Emergency Rinoectomy.
The media will not allow America to elect a Mormon. A pseudo Christian with Marxist Muslim roots but no personal history to examine is a different story.
Romney is peeking his head out now, from behind Governor Palin...because that’s where he and the rest of them have been hiding for the last almost 3 years, quaking in their boots too afraid to speak up...watching her speak out and take the media hits..
Too late for them to speak out now because they are ‘running’...
Obamneycare doesn’t cover that...
He never stopped
that speech at CPAC in May 2008 was an announcement for the 2012 POTUS race
Huckabee soundly trounced him.
I heard Willard “The Rat” Romney’s statement on television last night. He sounded like Bush 41 in 1992. He was flat and did not sound very enthusiastic.
He also reminded me of a better looking version of John “I Was in Vietnam” Kerry in that he has taken both sides of just about every question of importance during his political career—sometimes more times than once—just like John “Horseface-Horse’s Patutie” Kerry.
He got snookered by the Democrat legislature into giving us Romney Care which is killing the medical profession, medical care, and everyone forced to pay the higher premiums here in Massghanistan.
I suggest he finish his chicken chili (yes, chicken chili! that must be a Massghanistan delicacy of which I was unware until yesterday) and then run for governor of Utah or Idaho where the people will tar and feather him if he tries to enact Romney care.
