Sickoflibs may be a bit deranged (my pet name for him), but he is no Romney supporter.

You are a supporter of Romney...you sit on the couch of Romney and defend Romney.

That is a FACT.

I am calling BS on that. Show posts where SOL has ever supported Romney.

RE :”Sickoflibs may be a bit deranged (my pet name for him), but he is no Romney supporter

Thanks, I think :)
After calling me a Romney-bot 10 times rbm fessed up and posted that he knew all along I was no Romney-bot. I told him that it was our little secret. But I hate to let him down, try this:

Look, Romney is the only one that can beat Obama. He has the business experience to liquidate bankrupt organizations like the USA, he made Obama-care, err Romney-care, work; he can get independents and liberals support. If Obama gets elected we all die. I know he's not perfect but he's better than Obama who will kill us all after he forces us to have abortions and teaches our kids to be gay, that is worse than Romney. We can work on Romney after he gets elected. We will have MORE control then,
Romney-Newt 2012

Convinced ?

Some would like to see Romney attack the federal government the way he economized companies during his time with Bain Capital.

He did bupkis while he was Massachusetts Governor, so why would he do it as POTUS?

Thanks. Good news. Newt needs to get back to being the happy warrior and back on message. Let the super pac and Perry do the heavy lifting.

So many people just buying into Romney's electability with out even looking at his true record to see whether he really was any good as a job creator. Judging by the outrage at Newt and now Perry, his record must not be good enough to with stand any scrutiny.

If his record is exposed, to all the people in S. Carolina, I don't think Romney will win.

LOL at me. I’ve not been on the internet so much lately to see exactly who destroyed Cain.

If you have links, I would certainly appreciate them

I thought, as many did, that Obama didn’t want another black man...a Conservative black man...standing next to him, and debating him.

I haven't either.

There were ACCUSATIONS that seemly had weight behind them so Cain bowed out rather than fight.

Would an "I didn't have sex with that woman" been believed?

RE :";)"

I wasnt taking his accusions the least bit seriously. He was on the side of a losing issue, defending Newt (aka noot LOL) for using leftist talking points.

I don't see how Newt using those lib arguments helps himself, and it might even help Romney. Rush even pointed that out.

Too bad you lost your mind before coming to terms with the Capitalism rhetoric in question.

Explain how Romney and Obama differ in terms of putting struggling operations out of business? Oh... you can’t, you imploded... Well, Romney claims he’s just like Obama in that sense.

“Bain is an albatross for Mittens”

What isn’t? It seems to boil down to a pitch that he must be a ‘good man’ because ‘he don’t drink nor smoke nor chew, and he don’t kiss the girls who do’. The same could have been said of Himmler, who was a similar cold blooded moral void.

“Romney is nothing but a white Obama with an R by his name.”

I disagree. Obama is actually very candid about his aversion to all things honest, normal and whole. Obama openly embraces the dark, whereas Romney pretends he does not. Romney adds hypocrisy to the void which defines both him and Obama.

Do you think Romney’s Mormonism has a superiority attitude? That it’s OK to steal the pension funds of the non-Mormon peasants. Do you think this runs through Roney’s mind?

“Throwing thousands of people out of work by viable businesses and then selling off the parts to make millions of dollars more for yourself and your friends is not CAPITALISM.”

So you think owners doing with their PROPERTY is not capitalism. [You do understand that “buying up” MEANS YOU OWN WHATEVER YOU BOUGHT UP.] Let me just say, you have little to no understanding was capitalism and free enterprise is then.

I can tell you from experience what runs through a mormon's mind with regard to wealth.

If I am poor I am sinning. If I am wealthy I am righteous. Mormonism runs on "works". "FLDS/LDS "Prophets" all the way back to Joseph Smith have preached this.

Romney literally thinks he was chosen before birth for wealth and power, probably because he was a valiant fighter in the war in heaven. Really.

He also believes he is doing God(s)'s will to relieve the simple, sinning poor workers from their pensions and jobs. He believes God(s)'s will make them wealthy once they accept Joseph Smith as a prophet.

Sentienel’s post is accurate. I speak from experience as well.

In Mormonism, wealth and material success is proof that you are living the Mormon gospel and the fact that he is Mormon ‘royalty’ is generally thought to be proof that he was ‘valiant’ during the War in Heaven after Lucifer rebelled because God picked Jesus to be the Savior over him.

Where in the h@ll does Newt think venture capital comes from for small business and entrepreneurs these days?

Gingrich is right to stick it to Romney. If you drill down into what transpired at Bain you will understand that, while Bain did was legal, it was not honorable. As someone pointed out on another FR thread last night, what Bain did was akin to salting a mine. Buying up distressed companies, dolling them up enough to obtain investments and loans, strip out the cash, take the profit, and let them go bankrupt. Even pension funds were stripped. In some cases the Fed Gov/taxpayers had to back up the pension fund. In some cases, persons receiving pension benefits had their monthly pension checks reduced.

Legal, yes, but also heartless. Not the Christian/Mormon thing to do.

Also...Romney cast the first stone. Payback is a bitch!

I sure as hell am no Gingrich fa, but love him or hate him, he is a kick ass street fighter and the only one capable of beating Obama at this point. Obama sucks as a president, but he is corrupt, well organized and knows how to steel elections. Romney is clueless. If he gets the nomination he will have his ass handed to him by Obama in the general election

Gingrich is engaging in class warfare, side-by-side with the democrats.

True. And ironic since Newt and his latest trophy wife Cassandra, or is it Candace, or is it Callista...have a $500,000 line of credit at Tiffany's. Or is it Nordstrums, or is it Saks...

So Newt is not exactly one who should be engaging in class warfare.

That all said, Newt is, in perhaps an unintentional way, doing the GOP a huge favor by getting all this crap about Mitt out now because it certainly would have been used by Obama in the general election. So now the GOP has the opportunity to dump Mitt from the ticket (before it is too late) or if Mitt does survive, this will all be somewhat "old" news by the general election cycle.
