WELL DONE, MITT! As Governor Of Mass, Romney Banned The Assault Weapon Used In The Colorado Massacre
Business Insider ^ | Jul. 23, 2012, 10:26 AM | Henry Blodget

Posted on 07/29/2012 3:21:27 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

In 2004, as Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney banned the sale of assault weapons like the one used to spray 50-60 bullets a minute in the Colorado massacre.

On FOX News, Romney explained his position as follows:

"I believe the people should have the right to bear arms, but I don’t believe that we have to have assault weapons as part of our personal arsenal."

That seems like a perfectly reasonable position, no?

(Seriously: Do we really need to be able to buy and own these things? Is that really in the best interests of our society? Really?)

Unfortunately, in the intervening years, Romney has flip-flopped and now supports the sale of assault weapons like the one used in the Colorado massacre.

But the families of those who were shot and killed in the theater can presumably take some comfort from the fact that Romney was against these guns before he was for them.

Reagan easily on of the nations greatest presidents didn’t leave conservatism , you left Reagan.

I guess it really shouldn't surprise anyone that Mitt Supporters are so dishonest as the man they support is a documented serial liar as well.

Just because a man whom I admire and look up to as the best President since probably George Washington wavers on a couple of conservative issues (Gun Control and Amnesty) does not make Reagan the measuring stick for conservatism.

I can vigorously support and defend and admire Reagan without sucumbing to a form of worship that disallows my ability to judge Reagan by a true conservative standard.

Trying to wrap a lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal in a Ronald Reagan cloak is hilarious.

Especially since Mitt Romney has stated publically that he does not want to go back to the time of Reagan.

If you are going to support the misdeeds of Mitt Romney, be a man about it, don't attempt to decieve by pretending that because Ronald Reagan made the mistake of supporting Gun Control out of an emotional loyalty to Brady that that somehow makes it conservative.

Now your doing Axelrod and Barry ‘s work here . How obvious !

And you like clock-work, always support the most liberal candidate the GOP puts up, Pro-Abortion, Pro-Homo Marriage, Anti-2nd Amendment, it does not matter, you are Johnny on the spot defending them and haranging anyone who doesn't it.

Furthermore, you do this on a conservative website devoted to defeating such scum.

Yes, it turned out to be temporary because Mexican anti-communists ran them out of the country. Those Mexicans had no tolerance for “polygamous communes.” The Romneys and all of their “wives” were forced to flee to the United States. We’d be a lot better off if the Mexicans had just thrown the whole bunch of them into a Mexican prison.

Obama thanks you for your continued support. (He doesn't give a damn about your "principles". He just wants more time to destroy the country. He appreciates what you are doing!)

What does Romans 3:4-5 has to do with Romney? that verse was written for the believers. God has given us a choice, choose Obama or Romney but you have to choose or you will waste your vote. Any other candidate will only put Obama in the WH for 4 ++++++more years. Pray and Fast for 3, 7 or more days until God tells you what to do !!!!!! as for me I know who to vote for. Palin was my first choice but she is not running so I can’t vote for her and writing her name is not using common sense much less wisdom. May the Lord guide us on our decisions for sake of our children and stop the spirit of PRIDE in trying to get our ways.

Willards grandfather only bought one of his wives with him when they entered the US illegally...

The rest stayed in Mexico...

Moderate/liberal George, Willies father was born in the commune in Mexico...

He ran for POTUS in 1964 and 1968

he was requoired to prove he was eligible and he couldnt...

He never tried again...

Conservative Barry Goldwater beat the pants off george at the convention..800 to 40...

George stomped out of the convention hall with young impressionable Willie in tow...and turned on Barry and his good friend Ronald Reagan and the Republicans and went and helped Johnson to win...

(Later Reagan spoke of the moderate traitors in the Party...meaning George Romney...)

That sword of defeat that got his father,,,has been hanging over Willard these 50 years since...

He is deathly afraid of a fight with the Conservatives at Tampa...

He thinks hes jinxed with his fathers fate...

He doesnt want any viable conservatives there who might challenge him...

He knows they would win...

If he wasnt afraid of Governor Sarah Palin she would be going as a speaker...

All he knows how to do is destroy his opponents...

He fights like Obama...

So I take it you think you can compartmentalize your Christianity, right?

You can put it up on a shelf where your politics are concerned and just pretend while you are in that mode that you are no longer a Christian?

He is mentally unstable. He cannot find one sentence during the primaries in which I ever defended Romney. He claims I gave him money. That is a lie. I wanted a ticket of Newt/Bachmann. I may or may not vote for Romney. Since I am in Kalifornia, I have that option because Kalifornia is lost.

He has become more than just an annoyance here. His opinion is clearly not going to influence anyone because it is of no value. Perhaps he believes people will see him as clever because he puts up the same graphics on every Romney thread. I’d like to read those threads without the burden of the same crap posted over and over and over.

To clear the record, I have been accused of pitching for Romney here and on DU. Does anyone believe they would ever let me on their forum? They hate me as much as they have ever hated anyone.

I have challenged Diogenius to find a citation where I have pitched for Romney. I don’t particularly like him and may or may not vote for him. My focus is doing what it takes to stop Obama because this country’s future is at stake.

It is unfortunate that Romney will be the nominee. It was unfortunate that McCain was a nominee. We are stuck with what we have. Fortunately, being in Kalifornia allows me to vote my conscience. If I were in a close state, I would have to bite my lip and vote for Romney. The alternative is unthinkable.

Perhaps one or two people might take Diogenius serious if he actually made a reasoned point a couple times instead of posting the same crap over and over. Some here are actually capable of framing a well-reasoned argument against Romney.

Everything is “at odds” when dealing with politicians. I sit back and wonder everyday if there's any hope for my country today. But I find myself in that same moment with the optimism that makes me continue to run my home and business. Hire new employees, even now and just refuse to give up Freedom and find a sliver to hang on to.

I won't give up and OBL must go 1st.

We cannot give into the losing is winning. I own a small business and use whatever money I can appropriate to put to the people and causes that will best affect change. Free Republic being one at the top.

Obama winning again so I can feel better about myself = what? My business will not survive another 4 years of Obama which means I can give zero to Col West, Scott Walker, Michelle Bachmann etc... This battle is so much bigger than Mitt Romneys sins.

---

God has told us what to do. The correct choice is not to choose evil in the first place. The correct choice is to use your discernment to choose God's candidate (a hint: he's not either of the major two) and trust Him for the outcome win or lose.

Neither candidate is a social conservative; therefore neither can be God's choice since they do not reverence and obey God's expressed Word. Therefore, your assertion that God ordained we must choose between Romney and Obama is false. God allowed that option, however, and, being sinful, too many of us seem to have embraced it.

Romney fails God's test on homosexual issues and abortion, among others, and we know 0bama fails in nearly every way it's possible to do so. But if you want verses, try these as a warning against making a pact with the 'lesser of two evils' because somehow it will be better:

"Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem. You boast, "We have entered into a covenant with death, with the grave we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place." So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the grave will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through." The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror. The bed is too short to stretch out on, the blanket too narrow to wrap around you." -- Isaiah 28 14-20

I ask you this Dio? Did Ronald Reagan ever compromise politically to advance a cause?

BHO cannot win again, Period! If he does small business people like me and maybe you (I don't know) will die. I give tons of money to true conservatives and I'm telling you right now if BHO wins again there will be nothing left to give and that is his goal. I can give half of what I gave in 2008. Not because I bought a new car or boat. I barely hang onto my employees today.

I think you have more posts bashing Conservatives who refuse to vote for your progressive liberal boy Willard than you do outlining any difference between Obama and Willard...

All you are doing kid is getting our collective American lovin backs up and the more certain resolve that we are not going to be bullied into accepting the one you are pimping...

None of us are going to roll over and play dead for your master Wee Willie and allow you to shove him down our throats...

I dont like to be bashed by anti-Conservatives who are determined to force me to low my standards and act against my God and my own best interests and the best interests of the country I love and served...

but it goes with the territory...

God said there’d be times like this...

So for my part you are wasting your time RomneyBot...

You are out of your cotton pickin mind if you think for one minute I would consider voting for the immoral, homosexual lovin, killer of unborn children that you for some strange reason think is the best water walking messiah of the 2 America hating offerings on the ballot come Nov...

it stands to reason you dont know me or you wouldnt be wasting your time here away from DU trying to abuse me into doing spomerthing so sinful against the LORD Jesus Christ...

After all these weeks of continual hateful treatment at the hands of you and your ilk Im still here...

Several of your kind have been ZOTTED...

This is not a Republican site

nor is it a Willard4Wimp-in-Chief site...

You can thank yourself and your kind that I have dug my heals in real deep...

I dont have abused wife sydrome...I cant be beaten or insulted into submission...

I dont accept you trampling on my Constitutional rights..

So you can run back to your boy Wee Willie and tell him the name calling doesnt work for this old lady...

tell him I voted for the one he and his father hated, President Ronald Reagan so I know what it feels like to elect a real American LEADER...

Tell Willie he doesnt pass muster as fit to clean Reagans shoes and that Reagan had more decency and integrity and leadership and statesmanship and Conservatism and love for America in his one Pinky than Willie has in his entire body...

oh and tell Willie he is bankrupt in those attributes...

and hes not fit to be the president of the United States...

and do remind Willard

I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR HIM...

If Romney is the nominee in November, I'll be voting against him. If I knew that my vote would determine the election, I would nonetheless vote against both Obama and Romney. I'll be voting for Tom Hoefling and I recommend him to folks who express resevations about supporting Obama or Romney.

I have enjoyed the posts by Diogenesis. Ask to see one of his posts featuring "Milt." I think you'll like it.

I do sense that Diogenesis might also be voting against Romney. Nevertheless, I think there's room for both you and Diogenesis at this website.

I don't think there is anything wrong with supporting or opposing Romney. I have no grudge against people who admire Romney and his liberal, flexible approach to all issues. On the other hand, I feel very sorry for people who feel ashamed of their support for Romney, but nevertheless support him because they are terrified by the prospect of having to live without Romney's leadership. That sounds very painful to me.

Romney has become a source of much division at this website. I try to remember that this election will all be over very soon. Once Romney is gone from the political scene, there will be many things over which we can find unity. I look forward to that. ;-)

Jimbo is here on this thread. I have pinged him. Let him tell you what this site is... I will say this... Jim has stated for years and it is in print on our homepage. This is NOT a republican site... it is a CONSERVATIVE site. The republican party of today is as progressive as the dims were during the carter years. The dims have become communists and worse. I don;t vote for progressives of any flavor. I am not voting for romney or obama. I have been active with the gop for 40 years... they have never embraced Conservatism. It is a myth that Reagan changed the party... he changed the Republic but the party only remained silent because they fear losing their money and power. Within a month of the progressive GHWB replacing Reagan... they were once again on the road to progressive action.

Reagan was not perfect... he did raise taxes on the promise of a 2 to 1 spending cut... never happened... and he did vote for amnesty and the Brady bill and signed a letter supporting an Assault Weapons Ban but in his later writings he recanted most of his mistakes. He saw the lies of the left in their broken promises and in their overreach. He learned that there can be no compromise with the evil of progressives... and he learned it the hard way. Now there are republican sites... this is not and has NEVER been one of them. This site is for the REAL DEAL Conservative... not for the NEW DEAL republican.

Hi Doug,

I have stated my position quite clearly and many times over the past few years. I refuse to attack anyone on voting for romney. I will point out why I think it will just perpetuate the republican march to replace the dim party, which is today an anti American communist party. I try not to get personal with anyone over this because for almost 40 years I thought the same way about the gop and how to change it (vote for the lesser evil today and force the gop to the right for the next election).

Well the leaders are not stupid... they are evil and they are leftists but they are not stupid. They control the primary elections and they control who will and will not appear on the ballot. We have acted in lock step like cattle being led to slaughter and for too many years. There will be no more unimportant elections. There will never be a worse time to confront the gop or a better time. If not now... when???

I am surrounded by the enemy... I have decided to stand and fight... and standing up for Conservatism and the return of our Constitutional Republic are my ONLY motivating factors.

I try not to hate... I love CHRIST and the FATHER and they do not want us to hate. But we can despise a person and their ideology and we can certainly fight them tooth and nail for control of the party. The only way to do that today is to elect as many REAL CONSERVATIVES to the republican House and Senate and to deny the gop/e their precious presidential Victory (if they do not take the Conservative base into the process). They have not done so to date and they show no willingness to do so. There are things that mitt and the gop could do to heal the rift... but they do not want to heal any rift... they actually want to purge us from the party to be replaced with illegal invaders, sodomites and welfare socialists.

My prayers are for Conservatives to wake up and unite behind our ideology and screw the party... they have been screwing us for decades. Not one single leader of the gop/e... not one leader in any position of leadership amongst elected republicans is a Conservative... with perhaps the exception of Jim Demint... and Jim has had his share of progressive moments too.

We all need to be less personal and more professional in our debating. Those that are true progressives should be shunned and shown the door... and thrown our of that door and straight into the street. It is obvious that the party is divided and it is not our fault... look to that rat bastard reince preibus and mitch mcconnell and john boehner and all of the turds that swirled in mccain's toilet bowl and now swim in mitt's toilet. THERE you will find those responsible for compromising with the left over the past decades and their compromise and the left's incrementalism is what has brought America to the brink of collapse and it is they that have turned the republican party into the dim party.

You, and others like you willing to compromise whatever conservative principles you may have had, are nothing more than Party over Principle types (POP) also known as ABOs.

Wow! I'm a ABO or a POP. Oh dear!

Either Obama or Romney will be president. Not only are you voting for obama your constant, crybaby posts against Romney is the same as actively supporting Obama. OK so your vote is purer and more holy than mine. What do you gain by helping Obama other than to crow from the rooftops how wonderful you are?

I guess we can call you a SOS (A secret Obama supporter.) I'm done with all yo SOSs.

Mr. RomneyCARE had BETTER pull out and save America.
If Mr. RomneyCARE is the candidate, then Obama will win.

Romney’s mexican father, George,
pulled out 12 days before the Convention.

SO BE A MAN MITT, PULL OUT AND SAVE AMERICA.

The media will probably bring it up before the election to hopefully supress the Conservative vote. I would think most Conservatives already know about his previous stand on assault weapons, gay marriage, healthcare, to mention a few issues. It is still necessary to remove obama from the WH and a NO VOTE or vote for a third party will not accomplish this. We must turn out and vote Romney in November just as we would perform any other unplesant task, we should also work at not destroying the enthusisam that some prospective voters have. We want and need a large turnout among those who do not support obama to help the down ticket races.

Just think what President Romney with a GOP controlled Congress led by Boehnor and McConnell could accomplish. I’m sure they will get some help from Sens. McCain and Graham as well.

Perhaps Sen. “Amnesty” Rubio could lead the effort on “comprehensive” immigration reform.

The more I learn about Romney...the more I like the idea of a deadlocked government. At least the GOP would put up some token opposition...otherwise we will have GOP endorsed amnesty and Romneycare.

No, I don’t want to see any more of his posts. No, I am not a Romney supporter. No, I have not given him money. No, I did not support him in the primaries. No, I am not in bed with Soros. Does that make it clear?

I am a conservative before I am a Republican and, since I am in the Republik of Kalifornia, my presidential vote doesn’t matter. I may well not vote for Romney. If I were in a toss up state, I would bite my tongue and very reluctantly vote for him. If he wins, we can protest him and hold his feet to the fire. If Obama wins, we have absolutely no influence with him.

Maybe if I am going to waste a vote for a third party, I will just right in the name of a real conservative. Me.

Well, it seems to me that we agree on just about everything, except that you say you may not vote for Romney and I say that I will not vote for Romney. I can't vote for you this year because I've committed myself to voting for Tom Hoefling, but if you run in 2016, keep me in mind. ;-)

So as Ansel said “that is one vote for the pro-abortion platform.”

Okay, look people, Gary Johnson is a libertarian. He is also the Libertarian Party's nominee for POTUS.

He is neither pro nor anti-abortion.

He simply sees no authorization in the U.S. Constitution for the federal government to be involved in that.

I happen to agree with him.

With the two major parties' apparent nominees, I have a choice between an avowed socialist / communist or a guy who believes in magic underwear.

What would a thinking person do under those circumstances?

Johnson IS pro-abortion, and the party platform is pro-abortion, evidently you are pro-abortion.
