We're All in Trouble
The American Spectator ^ | April 10, 2012 | Quin Hillyer

Posted on 04/11/2012 4:12:31 AM PDT by BO Stinkss

Now we will put to the test what was always an odd claim, namely that Mitt Romney is well positioned and well equipped to defeat Barack Obama this fall. This is a man who lost by 17 points to an incredibly weakened Ted Kennedy (people forget how vulnerable Kennedy was that year) in one of the most pro-Republican years in history, 1994 (the same year in which Rick Santorum won yet another upset victory); a man who would have been handily defeated if he had run for re-election as governor of Massachusetts in 2006; and a man who could barely squeak past his GOP opponents this year despite running almost non-stop for nearly six full years and despite outspending all of them combined by at least a 2-1 margin, while outspending each of them individually by at least 4-1 and running ads that were 90% negative against them.

Plus, he's a perfect caricature for Obama's anti-corporate-elite message to take root. Plus, he's plastic.

The GOP establishment -- the money men, the consultants who so repeatedly spread the message that only Romney could beat Obama while they angled for a piece of the lucrative campaign pie, the hangers-on and officious kingmakers, and the cultural elitists who secretly share much of the big media's cultural attitudes and disdain for middle America -- now must prove they can actually deliver a victory. If they can't, the GOP should have a figurative bloodletting that banishes them forever from party power.

Nonetheless, every conservative, and everybody who loves this country and cares about its traditions, its Constitution, and its freedom, should do nothing other than help that establishment succeed....

Romney was chosen to lose.

Chosen by Rove. Chosen by the DNC.
Chosen by Soros.

Chosen because HE is ineligible.
Chosen because HE invented gay marriage.
Chosen because HE invented ObamaCARE/ROmneyCARE>
Chosen because HE supports TARP and sharia.

And the RMNE LOVES him for it.

People were upset with me months ago when I stated how the people of Pennsylvania disliked Santorum and how he would not win his home state. Little did I know that confronting a loss there would lead to his demise.

With 'Mitt the Flip' the Republican Party just effed up real bad. The GOP establishment has been feeding us crap sandwiches for years and this is no exception. Sadly too many so-called 'Republicans' want the free lunch too.

Romney will say whatever he thinks the audience wants to hear. He'll tell Planned Parenthood that he is their guy and then tell us he's a conservative. That is what Mittens does.

I have a suspicion that some of the negative ads ran in the primaries were paid for by Obama’s stooges. They clearly got the weakest link to run against him. Just like 4 years ago. I hope the 4 years of depression keeps America from making the worst choice again.

An Obama second term would feature expanded use of executive orders, expanded abuses via administrative fiat, further retrenchment from military strength -- and a real effort to stack the judiciary with ideologues who will refuse to rein in these abuses. In fact, the likelihood is reasonably high that he will be able to replace a moderate or conservative on the Supreme Court with a statist ideologue -- and thus secure an Alinskyite vision of a power grab on behalf of radical aims.

THAT'S IT FOLKS....IN A NUTSHELL. FOUR MORE YEARS OF OBAMA AND THIS GREAT REPUBLIC AS WE ONCE KNEW IT IS OVER FOREVER!!! The only way to stop the Obama, Marxist Agenda in his second term (since most folks on here are convinced Obama is going to be reelected) is to keep the House and take the Senate. Since Romney can't beat Obama we must concentrate on the House and Senate.

I can’t think of a single issue important to conservatives that we wouldn’t have to concede for Romney.

He’s not a RINO, he’s an outright democrat running as a republican. We may as well have Joe Lieberman as our nominee.

You are wrong.

Romney will help Obama. Romney ALWAYS HELPS OBAMA.

Romney for Obama in 2008

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.


"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."


"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?"



Romney for Obama in 2009


Chihuahua Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I also think it's important for us to nod to our pRes_ _ent when he's right,"
we are pleased with his plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
I also applaud our pRes_ _ent
for standing up to the evil auto industry. "


Romney for Obama in 2010

"Go Mitt. Go Mitt. Go Mitt"


"Rove is pushing Romney so aggressively
some folks are beginning to wonder what's going on,"
grumbled one veteran Republican strategist."


"Rove has made no secret
of his support for Romney as McCain's VP. "


Romney for Obama in 2012

Romney: U.S. economy ‘getting better’ under Obama


Romney for Obama in 2011



“White House Quotes Romney in Defense of Health Care”



Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."


Chihuahua Romney - the One and the Only "Magic RINO(TM)":

"Obama was born in the United States"

"Obama Doesn’t Need a Birth Certificate"

"The citizenship test has been passed"


Milt Romney in 2007

Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(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

“People were upset with me months ago when I stated how the people of Pennsylvania disliked Santorum and how he would not win his home state. Little did I know that confronting a loss there would lead to his demise.”

What does this thread have to do with Santorum? This was a weak field of candidates from the beginning. I was hoping for Palin, then backed Cain, then by the time Cain dropped out Santorum was the only viable anti-Romney. However, Santorum certainly has his flaws, and made several missteps over the last few weeks that doomed his already weak candidacy. It didn’t help that (as the article points out) he was outspent at least 4-1 in every state where he competed with Plastic Mitt. Still he won several states.

Romney is a poor candidate, the antithesis of the Tea Party spirit that prevailed in the 2010 election, and pretty much the worst possible choice to try and beat 0bama in 2012. This article is spot on.

Worth repeating.

Further, if the GOP can't swing back to being a true small government, pro freedom party, it will be past time for an actual Tea Party that fields its own candidates against both Republicans and Dems.

The problem is that Obama and Romney are cheaters.

There has been no accountability.

EVER.

Romney has used BAIN and his Mormon Legion to savage
the other candidates unfairly.
There has been no accountability. Even when
they savaged Gov. Palin’s children in 2008
for Romney in the future (2012).

They attacked CHILDREN.

Sick. If the GOP does not clean itself of the
sickness, it will inherit what is coming.

Some of us are not turning over the nomination until the convention fight. Romney needs to be made to work for every delegate he gets.

Should we poop out, Romney doesn’t have to even deal, or make concessions, and the GOP-E needs to hear us at convention, where they believe it will be a coronation.

There are states to be won yet. There are roughly more than half the delegates to be won.

We are the resistance. It is urgent that we not quit, not suspend, not grouse and give up. Newt hasn’t, and he is broke. Newt is in it to get us to convention and is doing some personal manno-manno spade work with delegates now. It is very important that we stick.

We’re having a money bomb for Newt on Wednesday! Win, lose or draw, Newt can force a contest for concessions and he CAN most certainly pick up some more delegates.

Sadly, if 0 pulls off the victory in November, America will be in very deep trouble. 0 would have a good shot at getting to appoint two to three more Supreme Court justices, and then we’re looking at a liberal majority for many years. Imagine the damage that could be done, and that is aside from whatever mischief he can accomplish himself.

So, despite all the rhetoric to the contrary around here, we should indeed hold our noses and support the GOP candidate. We can’t afford to do otherwise, as this is possibly the most critical election in the history of the Republic.

I am no fan of Romney by any means but two points invalidate this article to some degree. 1) No Kennedy is, was Ir ever will be vulnerable in Massachusetts. A Kennedy could ax murder a nun on Boston common and get elected the next day. 2) Romney won a state-wide office as a republican in Massachusetts. This is a rare And wonderful thing even if he is a RINO

I have a seething hatred of all voters who were bought by Romney’s money. They placed a dagger into the heart of what was once a great country and the bastion of freedom.

Romney is the personification of what our elective process has become...vote buying. It does not matter which party for they all do it.

Special interests run this country now, not the common people. Buying votes by complete saturation of the media, advertising and the use of public facilities and churches has blitzed the simple minds of our country to believe that the individual who’s picture is is front of them the most times in a day is one you HAVE to vote for. For younger, more impressionable minds, it’s a social must to go for the most popular politician who lies to you and tells you what you want to hear.

It’s a sad, sad world we live in today within the blameless society.

Romney and the GOP has sealed our fate and it’s time for a new party to represent the true Americans that are left. The GOP cannot be fixed for the ones to fix it are the ones who are currently in there. The only way to remove them is to find someone who has more money (votes) than them...and that ain’t gonna happen.

I hear your pain from your candidate losing. Actually, I totally agree with you, Santorum was the best of the worst. I just knew how the Republican Party in Pennsylvania did not like him when he was Senator and did not support him when he lost his PA senate seat. I knew this problem was coming and would be an embarrassment for Santorum in the PA primary.

Right now, our choices are Obama or the Obama clone. The same big money power people who work the puppet strings are holding them for both O’Bummer and O’Romney!

It made this statement before but it remain appropriate.....”The parties choose two loosers and we get to pick one.” Bottom line is we loose no matter which way we go. We are soooooooooooooooooooooooo screwed.

Plus the likelyhood that America would be ripe for a second civil war or revolution as a form of “angry blowback.”

I don’t know how to post a pic..... but look at this picture of Scott Brown of MA and see how much he looks like Romney in his features and mannerisms!

Just like 2008, it's "turd sandwich vs giant douche".

“The rest of the votes brought to you by SEIU and Scytl...”

That is why I have been posting on Scytl. I’ve been researching that company by entering the Board Members and CEO’s names in Google to find links with Obama, Soros, and other devious characters.

Funny thing, every cross search with Scytl and Soros had the common link of the BILDEBERGER GROUP attendance list!

If you look at the countries that Scytl is counting votes for, there is no question of a future explosion in the planning.

Remember,”The power is not in the people who cast the votes, but in the people who count the votes!”
