One of the first big moves of 2012 -- Mitt Romney Names Matt Rhoades PAC Executive Director: BOSTON -- Mitt Romney's Free and Strong America PAC announced today that Matt Rhoades, who has held senior positions on major presidential campaigns and at the Republican National Committee, will serve as the PAC's executive director. ....................................................
Rhoades, who's moving to Boston, is a well-regarded guy whose return to Romney pretty much confirms what will surprise nobody: That he's running in 2012. He's also, incidentally, been valued for his relationship with a key player in any GOP primary, Matt Drudge.

Which do you think is worse. Honestly quiting, or abandoning being at the helm, yet not letting another leader take the controls?
If the insurance is government mandated it is not really private is it? Free market solutions require freedom of the purchaser and the seller. Mandated health care purchases are equate to socialized Medicine.
Its my understanding that you and your imaginary friend, Wayne, are the only known Falconers. But I don’t believe I said that either you were or Wayne were “un-American”, but come on, even you have to admit you’re a teensy, tiny, weensy bit “unreasonable”, looney and jump on every thread containing a damning phrase, notion or word spoken by a Republican whether it has been proved true or substantiated, and scream “RINO” before pinging the flying monkey brigade.

SCREENPLAY: BANDS OF LEPERS
Fascist carpetbagger Mitt ("I am Myth") Romney:
"You will embrace these attacks on the Gov. Palin and the GOP now, throwing the Election.
Create, then support, these anti-Palin attacks from our northern lands,
the media, and our operatives on the Obama and McCain teams who will join you.
I will gain GOP favor by condemning the attacks and
ordering them opposed from our lands in the south.
Whichever way the tide runs, we will rise and be left standing. "
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++8 to 10 pts. in some polls, days prior to the election.
So rather than helping the GOP, poor loser I am Myth Romney and
TeamROMNEY decided to attack Gov. Palin (and her defenseless children) to throw Election2008.
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.
Erick Erickson, who organized Operation Leper, said:
"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."
Kathleen Parker: "[I]t is increasingly clear that Palin is a problem." "Parker ... says something publicly that many of us have thought privately
but lacked the courage to say out loud - Palin should step down:"
"Parker: Romney raised bar on freedoms"
Kathleen Parker: "If Kennedy's speech was an important landmark in American political history,
Romney's was surpassing. With heartfelt humility and poetic eloquence,
he tracked the nation's struggle with and for freedom."
Huckabee is a product of the MSM. They "made" him because they hoped he would be the nominee because they also knew how to ridicule and destroy him. He is not authentic. He is not conservative. He has many similarities to a couple of other former Governors from the South. Oh wait, there's a theory on that:
Hey! I resemble that remark!
No problem, just after I posted without using the name Medina, I thought that mix up could happen.
The thing is that Palin left with high approvals even after the media had been unloading on her nonstop.
Romney wanted to win reelection but he was such a lousy Governor that he finally admitted that the people would not elect him a second time, he lost the seat for Republicans, after all that, he wants to be promoted to President.
And yet again you mock Jim Robinson without pinging him.
I wasn’t mocking him, I was mocking you. I assume you pinged him. You are the one who invoked his name, not me.
So what do you think of Jim's official freerepublic statement? Is he just "slinging crude, ad hominem insults on FR"?
"If there is anyone here who doesn't understand why we cannot support a slick socialist politician like Mitt Romney, God help you, but you're on the wrong website. We went through this with the abortionist, gay rights activist, illegal alien supporting, gun grabbing Rudy Giuliani until someone created another website call WAnkers for Rudy and they all flew the coop. Hopefully, before too much FReeper blood is shed, someone will create a WAnkers for Romney site and we can be left to fight the good fight as we see fit!
FR is not for everyone!

You got it!
Yes but the standards in the first post weren’t lived up to by Palin. I’m ok if that is the poster’s argument for opposing Romney. But then it would be disingenuous at best to turn around and support Palin with such a stance against Romney, if that were the case.
Palin had real reasons to leave office in Alaska and join the national debate, Romney simply failed and was driven from an office that he wanted to be reelected too.
Don’t be a f****g idiot.
Fellate ‘em all you want, toots.
RomneyCare includes subsidized and “free” (aka, taxpayer-funded) coverage for those who can’t afford it. This is on top of Medicaid. That’s socialisim—in addition to the fascism of the goverment forcing people to buy a product.
From CATO (the whole article is worthwhile):
Before RomneyCare was enacted, estimates of the number of uninsured in Massachusetts ranged from 372,000 to 618,000. Under the new program, about 219,000 previously uninsured residents have signed up for insurance. Of these, 133,000 are receiving subsidized coverage, proving once again that people are all too happy to accept something “for free,” and let others pay the bill. That is in addition to 56,000 people who have been signed up for Medicaid. The bigger the subsidy, the faster people are signing up. Of the 133,000 people who have signed up for insurance since the plan was implemented, slightly more than half have received totally free coverage.

You keep trying to argue with me but you didn’t even make the post I was referring to (post 1). Therefore, unless one of your reasons for opposing Romney is that he only served one term and didn’t run for re-election, I’ve got no beef with you.
I took the original posters point to be that Romney sucked so bad that he had to forget his hopes for reelection and give up the office and was so clumsy and inadequate that he gave the office to the Democrats.
I think that is a valid observation and another argument against him. He sucked in the one elective office that he ever succeeded in winning during a 17 year political history to date.
That record is a reason to not consider such a loser.
“I think that is a valid observation and another argument against him.”
Then you have no problem accepting it as a vid argument against Palin.
Where is the comparison, Palin was a good Governor, pleased the people, left office with high approval and kept the office in Republican hands, she resigned, she was not forced from office because of lack of support from her citizens. Romney was denied the second term that he badly wanted, Palin was not in danger of being rejected for a second term and she did not hurt the state by losing it.
How could you read my posts and then take it upon yourself to lie, and put words in my mouth, is that just your way of coping?
“2012 — Mitt Romney”
If he gets the nomination he gets my vote but I will do everything I can to ensure that it does not come to that.
“Even though she is a truther that thinks that we, ourselves, murdered all those people at the Pentagon and in New York city?”
I am no Medina supporter (she has Paul stink on her) but what you just said there shows you to be either uninformed or a damned liar.
Doesn’t a truther think that we did it to ourselves?
How does she think that all the policeman knew about it? That is why she claims that none of them died isn’t it?
“Car insurance is mandated. It is still private.”
Really? What is the penalty for not having it and who enforces that?
“Doesnt a truther think that we did it to ourselves?”
Is that what she said? Before you answer, keep in mind that I am asking you for an answer that I do not already know.
You can get a citation for it. So, it is enforced by government, but handled by private insurers.
“That is why she claims that none of them died isnt it?”
I assumed the reason she stated that is because she is a f**king idiot.
JMO, your mileage could vary.
“You can get a citation for it. So, it is enforced by government”
That is all that need be said, government mandate is government run.
You sure have me confused, the way you attacked me implied that you knew something different and that I was wrong, I wasn’t.
She didn’t “claim” that either, as far as I know
