Open Letter to Mitt Romney: We Need you to Start Fighting!
canadafreepress.com ^

Posted on 08/10/2012 7:28:36 PM PDT by tsowellfan

Dear Governor Romney:

We have a problem. Unfortunately the problem seems to be with you and your campaign. Your opponent—despite his now-proven illegal status to even occupy OUR White House—is the sitting president of the United States.

This, of course, gives him almost unlimited resources to squash and destroy—by whatever means necessary—his opponents. As the Obama syndicate could find virtually nothing legitimate with which to destroy you (as he has done to every other opponent against whom he has ever run), his campaign has eagerly chosen to move the their first choice of attack—lies, lies and more lies.

Most precariously, in response to the arguably most despicable and false campaign AD in US history—that of actually calling you a murderer—your campaign leaders had virtually nothing to say except to bring up the health care program when you were Governor of Massachusetts...

The dirty fighting won’t come from the official Romney campaign, but trust me it will come.

You want Mitt to start fighting? Point him at a Conservative, and ol’ Mitt will come out swinging.

Really - Romney has spent years and million$ of his own to get to this point and it’s his only chance...so if doesn’t come out from the convention swinging then he just really doesn’t want it enough...Mr. Nice Guy needs to stay home...

Here's an idea! Watch this movie. Realize Obama's family were some of these goons. Then build the story line around his ideology. Gramps. Grammy, mom, and dear old Peg Leg. Oops. http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/200539/Big-Jim-McLain-Original-Trailer-.html

So Governor Romney, what’s your opinion of President Obama basically calling you a murderer?

Romney: That’s just silly.

I think Romney’s ok so far.

It’s very early, he has not even been nominated nor picked a VP. Everyone is focused on other things.

Once the campaign starts for real Romney will have to become more assertive. Even so, to start with he needn’t get too concerned about things.

To start with.

Just remember this - the worthless, stinking slug in our White House has the ultimate weapon - the “media”. They are the only effective water carriers in this “campaign”. Propaganda works, re Adolph Hitler.

Mitt doesn’t have the money to mount an effective attack right now.

Candidates are limited by law as to how much they can spend during the “Primary Season” before they are nominated.
After the nomination the restriction is lifted.

Romney spent most of his “Prinmary” money campaigning against others in the primary elections.

Obama didn’t have any challangers so he has a lot more money than Mitt right now.

After the RNC Convention Mitt will come out swinging.

So Romney is not fighting.

The power is still in our wringing hands.

You either vote for him or not. Quit expecting him to be what he is not.

What he is, is the anti-obama.

Vote for this reason - or not. Quit trying to place a personal voting decision on the back of a rino.

Vote Rino or sociopath.

Quit expecting a RINO to not be a Rino so you can cast your vote.

The vote is Sociopath or RINO.

Choose and STFU.

There is an article on DU where they are calling him a coward and a surrender monkey who can’t stare down anyone let alone the likes of Vladimir Putin. Of course we conservatives know that he was really good at staring down OUR candidates. Anyway, in the same article the f word is mentioned about fifty times so beware if you’re going to head over there, but I can’t say I disagree with them. Mitt is not exactly showing any cojones.

McCain lost because of how he ran.

Maybe intentionally.

Romney has no such way about him. He’s going to fight.

Yesterday I heard Hannity say that Romney has hired some new people who supposedly have the skills to go on offense.

Sounds like a plan, but seeing is believing and what I've seen so far is pretty sad.

Pick a Massachusetts liberal and this is what you get. He will fight hard to sink conservatives but let liberals like himself walk all over him. RINOs are worthless creatures.

I hope Romney can do it but it's difficult to be what you're not or to pivot from lifelong beliefs. As Al Gore once famously observed, “A zebra doesn't change its spots.”

One thing that G.W. Bush and Karl Rove were very good at was following the old saying, “don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes.” August during the Olympics is not the time to fight back.

So to use another adage, I am willing to keep my powder try on this until after labor day. Then when the public is paying attention Romney need make his case.

If Mitt doesn’t stop pulling a McCain and stop being afraid of offending Omuslim and his people, we will lose.

"Never thought I would say or ask this! So why is the republican candidate always picked by the leftist media, then we are left with crap."

Trouble is, as has been mentioned on so many other threads is the fact that the U.S. electorate has been dumbed down, bread and circus'ed, and generally become so stupid and apathetic that we are SCREWED!

Bottom line!

To the contrary G W Bush was hopelessly naive, and failed to attack democrats constantly.

G W Bush was the last person in history we want Mitt Romney to learn anything from.

Except (maybe) defending another nation.

Maybe that. Maybe. Bush had many great qualities but he also had several infuriating failures - his failure to go on the political attack when needed (over and over again) was a big no-no.

IMHO.

After the RNC Convention Mitt will come out swinging.

It doesn't take money to stand up for yourself when the media puts a microphone in front of your face.

It doesn't take money to respond to your opponents.

It doesn't take money to accept Mark Levin's invitation to go on his radio program where he could swing with sound bites.

It doesn't take money to go on Rush Limbaugh who has a much bigger audience than CNN could ever dream of. In fact, money could not buy the exposure obtained just being on those two programs.

It doesn't take money to come out swinging at your opponents when you're on Sunday Morning News shows, Greta and Sean Hannity.

It doesn't take money to come out swinging it takes passion, a passion that mysteriously disappeared after he did all the swinging against the Conservatives during the primary.

Excellent!

Even though I only copied this part of your post which puts it so beautifully truthfully and succinctly, the rest of it 'rocked' as well.

Nail on the head for sure.

Just as 'money doesn't equal class', if the passion was there we'd know it.

It isn't.

Start fighting? Well, good luck with that. I mean with Willard. Romney is just a bland candidate. Sure, he’ll be worlds better than Obama, but only because Obama is so awful. I’ll bet Romney and his minions are wondering why they’re not ahead in the polls with the train wreck of the Obama presidency on view to all. Because you haven’t given people a reason to vote for you Willard..not being Obama is just not enough.

The problem with Mitt starting to fight now is that there’s still no guarantee that Obama will still be the official candidate for the Democratic party. Obama can still walk away from it all.

If Mitt were to start lobbing bombs against Obama, but Obama walks away, that is a while ton of cash and energy that is wasted. Romney has shown himself to be a muslch more astute candidate than we originally gave him credit for.

It wouldn’t surprise me if this is the reason the Romney campaign has been holding back, because I’m sure they’re aware of the possibility as well.

I am so tired of this internet meme. As a FReeper you should know better. If you know about campaign rules, which as a FReeper you should, Romney can't touch his campaign warchest until after he is the official nominee, i.e. after the convention.

I am a conservative first, not a Romney person, but I want that communist b@stard out of the White House so bad I can taste it.

Educate yourself and quit calling Romney the second coming of McCain. You just look ignorant of campaign rules making those statements. Plus, it's early. Look for hard hitting stuff AFTER Labor day. That's when it counts. That's when the everyday guy/gal pays attention.
