Gingrich & Romney are weak leaders (Mark Levin's appraisal)
Mark Levin Fan ^ | 4/14/2010 | Mark Levin Fan

Posted on 04/14/2010 7:46:39 PM PDT by Brices Crossroads

Tuesday, Mark pointed out that Newt Gingrich is still defending his appearance in that stupid Global Warming ad with Nancy Pelosi.

Give me a break!

Then on Wednesday, Mark set his sights on Mitt Romney for praising Obama.

We don’t need a president that’s as wimpy as these two. We need a strong leader like Palin.

It did my heart good to listen to the Great One lay into Romney for saying that we should praise Obama when he's right. He said Romney wants to smile like Reagan, and be Mr. Nice Guy (like Reagan) which is fine if you have the substance and the strength of Reagan, which Romney and the rest of the Establishment GOP lacks.

I hope the reporter was either lying or taking what she said out of context. Romney is a nonstarter for any conservative. He is far more repellant than even McCain.

It is possible that she was just being polite since she is in (one of) his home state and wanted to seem gracious. He would be a major minus for her.

[from "Mitt Romney as Tarantino's Superman", New Republic]:
"Whereas most superheroes' secret identities (Bruce Wayne, Peter Parker) are their true identities
--the people they were before their parents were murdered or they were bitten by radioactive spiders
or exposed to gamma rays or what have you--Superman was born Superman.
It's Clark Kent that is the invented alias, the pose, the "costume."
And in the way Superman plays Kent--weak, self-doubting, cowardly--
we can see what he thinks of the human race overall.
It occurred to me that the same is true of Mitt Romney's desperate,
if never terribly persuasive, impersonation of a conservative Republican.

That was basically what I posted in that thread. She’ll never be a VP candidate again (IMO) and was just making nice with the local Mittsters. Assuming any of this is true, of course. The media has been known to make stuff up occasionally about Sarah...LOL.

The great one is, as usual, absolutely right! Gingrich can do a lot of good right where he is, if he chooses to. We do not need him leading the country, he is, as has been said, too weak. Romney is an opportunist, for his own ends, and we don’t need that either.

We need someone of the frame of mind and strength of character of Mark Rubio and Adam West. Strong principled people who will actually lead, not rule, and turn this country around, not take us in the same direction slightly slower.

I recently heard Mississippi Lt. Governor Phil Bryant speak at length on the radio, regarding government health control, abortion, potential national bankruptcy, etc.

He was very clear, strong and principled, which is unusual in this state’s politicians. A man to watch, although I do not think he has national aspirations.

Ron Paul has stated Iran and North Korea are not a threat.
His major supporters and money people are 9/11 Truthers.
Paul voted against condemning Ahmadinejad.

We have enough anti war loons with the democrats.

Please, Please, PLEASE let the 2012 GOP nominee be someone better than Newt or Romney.

I’ll admit I have agreed with Gingrich from time to time on certain economic and defense issues. But he’s got too much personal baggage, too much political baggage (i.e. buddying up with Pelosi, etc.), and frankly I think his time is past.

Romney? The guy does nothing for me. I’ll admit he’s very savvy on business matters, and he would more than hold his own against Obama in a debate. But Mitt Who Wants To Be President has spent way too much time running away from Mitt Who Was Governor of Massachusetts, for me to ever trust him with my vote. And the talk that he’s the one guy who can bring Michigan back to the GOP is, IMHO, just that (talk). Having a dad as governor of a state 40 years ago does not automatically mean political coattails today.

Me, I’m still holding out for the moose hunter in 2012 (Sarah!).

So you think there is a secret cabal of conservatives holed up in the State Department managing our foreign policy? One day, about the same time you figure out the Easter Bunny isn’t real, you’ll realize that never ending wars are a necessary mechanism to consume fiat currency, and they have nothing to do with preserving our freedom.

Levin: “Sarah Palin is the one national Republican who doesn’t back down from these people.”

For some reason, he doesn’t think she will run, although he admits, “I could be wrong about that.” He is not often wrong, but in the case of Palin, I think he would be happy to be wrong about her running.

I step into this with great reluctance.

Reluctance because I am a huge fan of Levin. I listen to him absolutely every chance I get on my Sirius radio. He is brilliant, funny, and almost ALWAYS right.

I am also a huge fan of Sarah Palin. As much because of how much she annoys the left as anything else. I believe she’s right on the issues, smarter than given credit for, and represents what is good in America in almost every sense.

Now...please think about what I’m going to say before you respond....

Between Palin and Gingrich, HONESTLY, who would you rather see debate Obama? Who do you think really has the deeper grasp of all the issues and a superior ability to express the conservative position?

Be honest with yourself. Who is smarter? Who is more articulate? Who would fare better as a representative of conservatism and as a person to articulate the conservative vision and belief system.

I won’t answer. I’ll just ask you to ask yourself the question and try to be as honest with yourself as possible.

Hank

Yeah.
I am quite certain Gingrich, Romney and Pawlenty are running though, and probably Santorum as well.
Romney and Pawlenty have already started setting up their presidential run organizations in the various states.
Sarah Palin on the other hand, hasn't set up anything..yet. It should all start to unfold about a year from now. First to announce will probably be Gingrich.

Palin. Gingrich is too smart by half -- so "too smart" that he's an idiot. ANYBODY who does not perceive by now that the global warming hooey IS "snake oil science" is an idiot not worthy of my -- or your -- praise.

I'm being honest with myself and with you. Now why don't YOU try being honest with yourself for a change: yes or no, are you an elitist snob?

Yes, Romney is a much more polished speaker and debater

The problem with Romney being the 2012 candidate is that it will take ObamaCare off the table as an issue.....Socialized medicine is supported by both Obama and Romney

Which is why the McCain canidacy was bad....it took Illegal Alien Amnesty off the table as an issue with McCain as a pro-Amnesty candidate....imagine how many Dems would have been brought in with a secure-borders, no amnesty candidate? The GOP got hung up on the myth that “hispanics will vote for a pro-amnesty candidate”

Romney poses huge problems in going after Obama on ObamaCare

Sarah Palin hands down. Gingrich is a guilty white republican that craves approval from the media. Palin has NO white guilt. She's worked for everything in her life, unlike obama and Gingrich. Here's what kills any chance Gingrich has at the nomination. In the months that followed the decision of the Iraq troop surge strategy by pres. Bush, when Bush stood alone versus the entire media/democrat party and leftist military generals, State dept., CIA etc., Newt's fatass was all over Sunday morning news shows and on Fox declaring the war lost, what a failure Bush was and that Bush should admit he failed , “cross the aisle” and join together with nancy pelosi, harry reid and the Iraq study group and plan a strategy to leave Iraq. Plus his global warming belief nonsense where he concedes the issue to john kerry, pelosi, etc. And he has the worst voice tonality of just about any politician around. I mean please. His normal speaking voice is that nasal lecturing whine that is unbearable. There's much more, but the ones listed are campaign killers.

Newt did great work with his contract with America and leading the pubbies to victory why back when.
Since then he has spent too much time in D.C. and now craves the MSM spotlight a bit too much.
Then he allowed the party to act like dem lite and spend like drunk sailors.
Recently he has appeared in adds with Hillary and Ms. Pelosi and he has lost any true conservative notions he ever had.
As for Romney? Pretty face RINO turd who I refuse to support no matter what.

Sarah does not back down and openly calls them out for the evil they are - "All Alinsky. All the Time."

I believe she runs if the Repubs have a solid Nov,2010 victory that she can use as a base for her 2012 campaign.

Myth & Newt are finished. RuPaul is a nutcase.

Th marxist media & their bosses in the Alinsky Party have a great fear of Sarah. And they should!

see my tagline....
