Mitt Romney Interviewed by Chris Wallace (A disaster?)
RightPundit ^ | Sunday March 7, 2010 | Arriba

Posted on 03/07/2010 7:58:15 PM PST by Bigtigermike

I watched the Mitt Romney interview on Fox News Watch with Chris Wallace this morning. I actually watched twice, I was stunned. What a debacle! Apparently, this was his opening gambit in his 2012 Presidential campaign, since he has written a book. Wallace, by far the most skilled of the talking head interviewers, pressed Romney on his two primary claims: that Obama has spent his first year apologizing for being an American, and that his health care plan is awful.

Romney was unable to delineate any major differences between the plan he developed in Massachusetts and Obama’s, except that the latter is a national policy, whereas Romney’s just applied to one state. He claimed that insurance companies bear no responsibility for rising health care costs, and then said that when insurance companies act ‘badly’, actions should be taken against them, but couldn’t clarify what he meant. When he tried to say a difference was that the Massachusetts plan didn’t have a public option, Wallace nearly laughed out loud. I don’t know if Romney thought that Wallace would give him a free ride, since it was on Fox. If he did think that, he might have wanted to watch the show once in awhile or at least prepare.

I readily admit that he is the presumptive nominee. Wall Street adores him. My guess is that if he gets the nomination, it would be a debacle. Name one Bible Belt state that would support him – perhaps Mississippi. He will bring down a number of Republican House seats in this region. He didn’t say anything that I thought was believable in the last campaign. I had made a bet with a friend that if he and HRC won their respective nominations, we could set up lie detectors on both of them, and make a drinking game out of it. But that’s beside the point. Instead of just foisting another nominee upon the American public, it might be worth the party’s time to actually try to figure out who the voters would support. For his part Romney might try being honest, and see how Americans like actually knowing what he would do. But I sort of think he doesn’t even know what he believes any more.

Hey, I resemble that remark.

For the record, lots of us 'yankees' also are thrilled to see the Mittster expose the walking contradiction 'disaster' that he really is.

Interesting, Wallace may have done, in one interview, what you and your group hasn’t been able to do in a year. He was even able to do it without false accusations and name calling, may be a lesson there.

“Until further notice, this is a two person contest. At the moment, either could win the GOP nomination”

Actually it’s not a contest at all. It won’t be for at least a year, at which time we will have a much better ideas of what will shape the race and who the candidates will be.

The concerned Troll, the liberal talking points, We get it. You don’t like the Conservative Republican who can beat Obama, Sarah Palin.

Obama already trounced Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin and McCain lost the election because they both supported TARP and gigantic government.

If you want to believe that a lap dog can change into a wolf, be my guest.

I would like to throw Bob Riley into your listing. I think Governors are better suited for the office of president, than members of Congress, so would place them above the others. I would put them at the top of the list, in this order; Barbour, Riley, Jindal and Palin.

I base this on, in my view, the success of their governnorships. There are however far too many unknowns for this list to be meaningful. After all Gov. Sanford would have once been on this list.

I don't waste any time at all on Romney--but you folks, you spend hours and hours and hours scouring the Internet to find and post any article you can find critical of the guy and then posting hundreds or thousands of posts which--frankly--are identical to the previous hundreds or thousands of posts.

You obviously think the guy's still a threat, and I don't understand why. He hasn't got a prayer in hell of getting out of the primary let alone being elected.

“She supported the bailouts and TARP because she was under McCain campaign, just like Cheney had to support Bush’s anti-gay marriage although he personally supported gay marriage because of his gay daughter.”

So now, if she runs, she will have the opportunity to explain/correct this and chart her own course.

Sarah only has publicly supported one bailout, that is TARP I that was promoted by Hank Paulson. And her support of TARP I was based on SUPPORTING JOHN MCCAIN’S DECISION to back Paulson and Bush; and now McCain claims he was misled by Paulson and Bush to the use of the funds. That’s like blaming an ex-wife for her husband deciding to take a government loan in his business when she had virtually no say in the decision, being essentially a cheerleader and after her ex-husband does a mea culpa that he shouldn’t have taken the loan in the first place.

Mitt Romney is not to be discounted. Anyone who is on top of INTRADE currently gets my attention. He is not currently at the bottom of the totem pole as Huckabee is now. Mitt is a threat, a definite threat to win the GOP nomination; he has reputedly the entire GOP establishment behind him. That’s pretty heady stuff, my friend.

How quickly everyone forgets the 2006 trouncing the Republicans took. The Republicans lost control in 2006 because they were spending like liberal drunken sailors.

Yes and what were the main MSM and Obummer talking points? Out of control government spending and the depression because of Bushes policies. Remember that change and hope thingy? Obama promised to reign in an out of control government. Now our hope is to portray Obummer as Bush II, which he is.

The only reason Mitt is in the hunt is because of the backing of the Republican establishment support.....he doesn’t have strong backing by the general public but has that “it’s his turn” syndrome and we know how Republicans vote on that term.

“I wish DeMint, Pence, Barbour, Bachmann or one of those people would start making 2012 noises. We can’t be positive Palin is going to run (I hope she does), but the only one really making the big signals at this point is that horrid RINO Romney.”

Actually I think any “noise” they make should be in support of congressional candidates. This give them some exposure as well as defines their ideology by statements made during the campaign. They can then hone their message and start their campaign after the holidays, don’t insert politicos into our holidays.

That’s why, dare I say it, I think Romney’s statement, about waiting until after the election (for an announcement), makes sense.

You ought to read Sarah Palin's book before relegating her to "tweedledum" status.

And Obummer wrote his book too : )

I don't care too much anymore about what people say. I care about what they do.

Sarah supported McCain, who singlehandedly rescued TARP, pinning their election on the outcome of that bill. And Sarah continues to Support McCain to this day, even after all the vicious attacks on her from McCain and his cronies.

I don't want a lap dog for President.

Peter Horry: "That’s why, dare I say it, I think Romney’s statement, about waiting until after the election (for an announcement), makes sense.

Defending you is difficult, Mr. Horry.
Romney HATES the GOP. Witness that he never called off
his Team Romney from attacks on Gov. Palin either during Election 2008
or thereafter.

Romney HATES the GOP and wants to weaken it.

Would you like some urls of Team Romney's surrogate attacks
on Sen.Thompson, or perhaps Gov. Pain, or perhaps Sen. McCain?
Which would you like to see and defend? (or attack the messenger, perhaps)?


Romney on Letterman (same night as Gov. Palin
After Letterman attacked Gov. Palin’s daughters!):

Romney (D, shapeshifter): "I'm not running as the Republican view or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(Backstabber Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn’t make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan




I'm very clear I think, to the people across the Commonwealth
my "R" didn't stand so much for Republican as it does for reform.
"
(Flip-flop chameleon artiste and carpetbagger Mitt Romney
Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
 which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."

--  President Ronald Reagan

If you mean that Wallace sucked up to his admitted, bizarre
"thigh tingling"-love of Mitt Romney,
to whom he gave softballs and then allowed to lie to the American public
claiming 1) RomneyCARE did not increases taxes
(when it did, including FEES labeled as taxes),
and 2) RomneyCARE was not increasing costs
when Massachusetts (from where Mr. RomneyCARE fled)
showed exactly the opposite, then you have a point.

The GOP establishment, and the media are ready to back Romney. Because of this, he has a fair shot at becoming the nominee in 2012.

My feeling on this is that he is being chosen specifically because he is easy to destroy. People who like socialized medicine will vote for the Democrat, not Romney -- so Romney's signature accomplishment buys him nothing. People who like homosexual marriage will vote for the Democrat, so Romney gains nothing here. And it's always easy to slime a Mormon and make people afraid of "weird" religions.

Romney is perfect -- if you want the GOP to crash and burn in the fall of 2012. That's precisely why he has so much support right now.

As for the rules, here’s one you seem to have forgotten. Have more when needed.

“The Radical may resort to the sword but when he does he is not filled with hatred against those individuals whom he attacks. He hates these individuals not as persons but as symbols representing ideas or interests which he believes to be inimical to the welfare of the people.”

Wallace pointed out MA has the most expensive insurance rates in the nation and Romney said Massachusetts would be even more expensive if they had not roped the young healthy people into the system with the individual mandate.

Ouch. We are so screwed candidate-wise. (Although currently my heart belongs to Marco Rubio.)

That put her in a “supermajority” on the issue, but I’m not sure that made her position the right one. I also got very sick of hearing them say this was a bad bill but they had no choice. Would like to see this hashed in the campaign, but that’s probably too much to hope for.

I may be getting into “tin foil” territory here but I think this was a manufactured crisis (though it created definite dangers) which achieved precisely the hoped for results.
God, it disturbs me to think the Democrats are actually that smart.

I also believe McCain’s weak and undeceive response to the hurricane threat, as well as the financial crisis cost him the election. As Rush has pointed out, we HAVE to do a better job of selecting our leaders.

Peter Horry: "I also believe McCain’s weak and undeceive response to the hurricane threat,

What hurricane threat? The only "storm" was from Team Romney, was it not? (.....sound of crickets.....)

As Mr. Romney's MOST erudite defender, do you have anything
to say about what really happened? (.....sound of crickets.....)

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++8 to 10 pts. in some polls, days prior to the election.

"Frum was indeed a critic of Palin, calling her nomination a "huge mistake" during an October 13 (2008, weeks before the election) Early Show appearance."


David Frum: "Two of our most plausible candidates for president in 2012 are leading Mormons: Mitt Romney and Utah governor Jon Huntsman."


David Frum: "I have a lot of regard for Mitt Romney as a man and politician… I will support him without qualm."


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."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s 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 Romney’s 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 Wallace’s husband."

(.....sound of crickets.....)


Who benefits most from Sanford meltdown? Californian (that's right) Mitt Romney


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Well, actually, if you were as informed as you purport to be you would remember that there was a hurricane treat at the start of the Republican Convention and there was much indecision about how to proceed. You DO remember that, don’t you?

Give me a list of 10...that you think have what it takes to be POTUS.

I'll give you mine.

In no particular order..

1. Tom Coburn

2. Allen West

3. Paul Ryan

4. Thaddeus McCotter

5. Duncan Hunter

6. Thomas Sowell

7. Liz Cheney

8. Steve Forbes

9. A very, very smart and fair minded doctor friend of mine...( Who shall remain unnamed...)

10. Congressman Billybob

Notice...these are all outsiders to the mainstream.

Frankly I'm sick of having a Dole or a McCain foisted on us....I'd take any of the above...before the people being brought up now...by the likes of the GOP.

IF...some no-name TOTUS reading MARXIST/COMMIE can get elected to POTUS...then some outside the box....person ought to be able to also.

Of course...who in their right mind would want the FULL FORCE of the LEFT in this country....lying about their family and them night and day?

I don't care too much anymore about what people say. I care about what they do.

Then you ought to read Sarah Palin's book. It's a complete record of everything she's accomplished in her life. You'll be impressed.

You were asked to defend Team Romney's attacks on Gov. Palin.
That was post #129

(.....sound of crickets by Peter Horry .....)

Thereafter, you fled (like Mitt Romney fled Massachusetts).
You snuck back to throw a few ad hominems and fled again.

(.....sound of crickets by Peter Horry .....)


Your failure to address Post #129 shows you admit
Team Romney did do the attacks, and that you condone the anti GOP attacks.
Have a great day.

(.....sound of crickets by Peter Horry .....)

By the way, Mitt Romney does not have the courage
or the ability of Gov. Palin's toe nail.

I don’t hate Romney. I hate his lying, his flip-flopping and his political whoring. He’s proven over and over again that he has no moral foundation, will lie and change “bedrock” positions, and do or say anything that he thinks will help get him elected. He’s totally untrustworthy. And the fact that he’s still bragging about RomneyCare proves that he’s a statist who couldn’t care less about Liberty.

Piss on Romney. I wouldn’t support or vote for him if he were the last Republican on earth. If Romney’s in, I’m out.

Hopefully someone will create a WAnkers for Romney forum like the WAnkers for Rudy did a couple of years ago, because FR will NOT be used to support him.

There isn’t a person on your list (except possibly your unnamed friend : ) ) that I wouldn’t heartily support.

How come we can’t get a real conservative running for pres?

You would vote for my friend in a heartbeat.....

He's very smart, witty, and he's quick on his feet.

Doesn't suffer fools lightly ...

And he's funny, personable..and a good looking guy.

But he will never run...because he doesn't want the rectal exam that comes with it.

Which probably answers your question........

I am not dissing Sarah. If she is the best we can come up with so be it. Unlike McCain who I could never ever vote for I could actually vote for Sarah.

My dream list?

This is hard : (

Walter Williams

Thomas Sowell

Victor Davis Hanson

Steve Forbes

David Petraeus

Paul Ryan

Newt Gingrich

Eric Cantor

Andrew Breitbart

John Boehner

Karl Rove (my friend, since you had a friend in your list)

Grover Norquist

Michelle Bachmann

Marco Rubio

None of them are perfect, some on my list haven’t proven their bonafides and certainly would never be candidates, but they would make a good President never the less.
