Is the liberal media trying to nominate Mitt Romney?

Posted on 06/07/2011 3:01:22 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing

I just want people to look at the internals, that's all.

Here is the brand new Obama/Mitt poll from ABC and the Compost:

Poll: Romney, Palin See Boost; Obama Vulnerable

Now follow me here, from what I can see, this is the internals.

Now, stay with me. Here is the party sampling:

Democrats 41, Republicans 32, Independents 20

Now again, just stick with me here. If this were ANY OTHER POLL, we would all be screaming 'push poll!' 'liberal media'! 'drive bys!' 'oversampled poll!', and I'm sure many of you are.

Now, this poll does show weakness for Obama. And that's a tempting thing to discuss. But I want to stick with the poll internals.

Is the liberal media trying to nominate Mitt Romney here? Is the liberal media trying to undercut tea party hopefuls by giving the establishment a little boost? Or did I just read the internals wrong? Help me out here guys.


TOPICS: Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS:
With Mitch Daniels gone, the liberal media is gonna have to do something to help out the establishment republicans. We *KNOW* they don't want a repeat of the reagan years. We all have to be on the lookout for this.

I'm not saying that's exactly what they're doing here. I'm just getting people's attention so that others can see what I'm seeing, and either tell me I'm way off, or confirm that the media has done it once again.

Of course they are. They know he won’t win the election.

Yes.

Romney and his people think they can buy the conservatives (jazz up the base) with a Bachmann slot, a la McCain 2008 tactics.

This won’t work, the opponent is not the messiah anymore.

Next question.

Romney is not going to get the nomination despite the lying medias propaganda.

No doubt there will be a lot of crossover voting in the primaries, but there is no way that Romney pulls this out. Too many flaws, too much a Dole/McCain type.

They continue to ignore Mr. Cain. The MSM has their agenda and it is at odds with the Conservatives’ agenda: electing a true Conservative.

I believe so. Romney is a loser and they know it. McCain redux.

Mitt is the media darling, just like McCain before him. Any Republican candidate the MSM isn’t trying to destroy is a loser.

“does a bear....?”

“is the pope catholic...?”

Of course they are..their priorities reflect the DC Oligarchy. Politically Romney is a white Obama.....just the way the Oligarchy likes it..

This election will formalize the Rinocrat Socialists/Fascists vs the Flyover Country Constitutionalists. Regardless of the outcome...the outline of our task as We the People will be clear after.

It's been obvious for some time that the left desperately wants Mitt Romney to be the designated loser to Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. On the other hand, they fear and loath Sarah Palin so they never stop announcing that she 'can't win' and has high disapproval numbers. I've heard some liberal pundits constantly claim that the GOP nominating Palin would be 'political suicide'. The Republican establishment (think Karl Rove) laps this up. So, to me (and many other FReepers) that the liberal media want Romney as the 2012 Republican presidential candidate is pretty clear. You always want to run against the weakest candidate. Notice that the liberal media clearly doesn't want Obama to have to run against Sarah Palin.

Many on FR don’t like him either because he’s not Palin.

I think they are. If Obama gets the nomination without a serious primary challenge, there will be nothing to stop the lefties from registering as Republicans and voting for whomever they want.

We need to come to some consensus of whom to support, or at least narrow it down to two or three at the most, to prevent them from choosing our candidate for us.

Yes, because he’s the most Obama like of the leading Republican contenders at this time. They know the Republican candidate will win over The Won.

Romney went to Harvard. His mind is poisoned. I crossed him off the list.

Incorrect. We don't like him because many of his views mirror Obama's.

To be honest I really haven’t looked into her since she hasn’t declared. I just like how she ticks off the right people. Right now I’m going for Cain. If Palin declares I’ll take a serious look at her.

It isn’t that, it’s just they don’t want to get overly distracted by candidates with no chance to win.

Romney will suffer the same type of defeat as his protege Nutmeg Whitman suffered at the hands of Gov. Moonbeam. He’s completely unelectable.

The support of the media morons should be all the encouragement a legitimate conservative needs to VOTE AGAINST HIM!

Of course they are pushing Romney. If the liberals have to lose, they want to lose to a RINO.

And if he does lose, they want a person in office who will nominate left of center judges and who won’t overturn any of Obamas regulations and won’t overturn Obamacare.

If there were ever a time for an election that offers two diametrically opposed candidates it will be this next one. Mitt versus Zero doesn’t provide a real choice.

Unfortunately, Fox internet radio talkers are more supportive of Mitt than anyone. And they are not giving Hermain Cain enough support.
