Ann Romney, to critics in GOP: “You want to try it? Get in the ring.”
Radio Iowa ^ | September 20, 2012 | O. Kay Henderson

Posted on 09/21/2012 6:19:30 AM PDT by C19fan

Ann Romney says fellow Republicans who’ve criticized her husband need to “stop it” and realize “how lucky” the party is to have Mitt Romney as its nominee. Ann Romney spoke late this afternoon to about 200 people, mostly women, who’d gathered for a rally in the store room of a central Iowa furniture business.

We won't stop Mrs. Romney because we are not Kool-Aid drinkers like the members of the Obama cult. We are not "lucky" to have your husband as the nominee. If we had a half-decent candidate he/she would be consistently and decisively leading the Emperor with no Clothes.

With all due respect Mrs Romney there would have been better candidates in the ring, real conservatives, if your husband had not politically assassinated them for 4 years

just sayin

I understand your frustration...but I think we must circle the wagons when it comes to Romney. He has the media and Dems dumping on him every day, so why should we add to that? The last thing we need is to project mutiny or any type of agreement with the ‘other side’......they NEVER do that to their own. I just think its time to support our candidate, as the alternative is marxism.

Yeah, we'll show them, we'll help reelect the most destructive, most divisive, most anti-American, pro-death, pro-muzzie, pro-Marxist, pro-racist, anti everything we believe is right and good administration ever....

Breelliant!!!

Mrs. Romney, Please ask your husband to assail Barry with at least half of the energy he did against his “own” party during the Primary!

Could not agree more w/ this comment.

I was a Newt supporter. I think we would have been ‘lucky ‘to have Newt as our candidate.

And I am thrilled that Newt is taking a leading role to help Akin. The Gop-e can kma. They should be ashamed of how they’ve handled the so called Akin controversy. Bunch of yellow bellied pukes.

This is the last hurrah of the GOP-e, and they know it. If their annointed “moderate” can’t win this time, they should be thoroughly discredited. In fact, this could be the swan-song of the Republican Party as conservatives organize their own party. Whether conservatives can actually agree long enough to plan a course of action is the big question.

Control of the GOP may be mute, however, after four more years of Marxism in the White House that will transform America into France.

Mrs. Romney,

Your husband and his operatives in Tampa changed the rules on Electors and we no longer can do anything but give you money and blind support... our voices are no longer represented. You husband will win this election because obama is just that bad... but do not invite Conservatives to a party where you have hired Blackwater to keep us out... savvy.

Horse hockey. Any good candidate can stand on their own 2 feet.
They can withstand a Mittens attack.

Better candidates didn't come forward; because they didn't come forward.

If they want to behave like democrats I'll treat them like democrats. They can KMA

The Michigan Republican Party (MRP) Credentials Committee voted 4-2 last night to give Mitt Romney both of the state's at-large delegates, State Policy Committee Chair Mike Cox told MIRS today.

Cox was one of two "no" votes on the committee which met via telephone, along with attorney Eric Doster The "yes" votes included GOP National Committeeman Saul Anuzis, a Romney supporter, and MRP Chair Bobby Schostak.

That would put the delegate split at 16 for Romney and 14 for Rick Santorum, after each candidate won 14 delegates apiece in those divided by Michigan's 14 congressional districts.

As MIRS first reported on Wednesday, the MRP was delaying a final decision on the delegate split until after consulting with attorneys.

Cox said that according to the MRP rules, Santorum and Romney should each get one of Michigan's two at-large delegates based on their take of the popular vote.

"I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong," Cox said of the Credentials Committee. "It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."

Absolutely! After the events of the last week, you'd think that sentiment would be toned down but, I guess there will always be some on this site that prefer a leader who sends our troops into battle with no ammo and the enemy for protection!

Just astounding...

Ah, I predict it’ll happen within weeks. It’s not a race of Dems v GOP. OB is running with the label Dem but he is not one.

If we are so fortunate as to get him out, we have much work to do with the entire GOPe as they had ushered this man in and have paved the path for much that he has done.

If we don’t remove him from the WH, we won’t recognize th US within a very short time.

This man is not like the Clintons, ruining things piece by piece, ushering the way for his kind. He’s not better nor worse, he’s just not them. He’ll ruin everything without remorse and without looking back and in very short order. His wife won’t stop him, nor will his handlers, nor will the republicans, certainly not his voters/supporters who will be under the bus on November 7th.

The media will be shell shocked.

We’re busy promoting “2016”, and that’s good. But geeze, doesn’t anyone know Shakespeare?

She is correct. Especially the panty waisted types like Crystal and Noonan and any other pundit who loves the sound of their own words, and those words are fodder for the democrat noise makers. This is a serious election and all we hear from Obama’s cheerleaders is fluff and distraction.

Romney wasn’t my first choice but he will be infinitely better than what is in office now. I just hope he cleans house at all levels because we need a reset after this bunch. I hope he does.

One thing that I love about our family of Conservatives here... we state the truth about our own candidates as well as the truth about our enemies. Conservatism at its cornerstone... the truth. ALWAYS embrace the truth. To do otherwise... is to be a democrat.

B.S. Please elaborate on WHO Romney spent the past 4 years preventing from running?? You sound like a Ron Paul conspiracy theorist .

There was plenty of room for other candidates to run, but we got the crappiest group of misfits that have ever run for President in my lifetime. Some people just can't seem to deal with it.

I think they’re just hammering him because he’s not talking Obama with any real passion when he has more ammo to use against the worst President in history. If he would act like a fighter And act like he really wants to win they’d get behind him. Still I’m voting for Romney because we can’t afford to lose our country because of the current Manchurian Candidate that’s tearing our nation part from the inside out. Anyone that doesn’t vote is casting one for the AntiChrist in office.

She should have told her husband and her husband's supporters to "stop it" back in 2008 when they were stabbing Palin in the back and sabotaging the McCain/Palin ticket. We haven't forgotten.

Just an observation here, it seems to me that all the Romney naysayers here (and elsewhere) sound like bitter ex-wives...
you know the type, they lose the husband and regardless of what he goes on to do, they stalk and trash him to the end!
They are taking this way too personal, it’s not about any ONE of us, it’s about ALL of us and our families, children, grandchildren etc ect

My Lord people, the man is not a savior for goodness sake, but he is most definately an AMERICAN who loves our way of life and won’t sell us out to the flipping muslims pushing for their tired old caliphate!

“If we had a half-decent candidate he/she would be consistently and decisively leading the Emperor with no Clothes.”

That argument ended MONTHS ago. The primaries are well over. We’re in the general election now, 7 weeks out, in fact. So worry about the ‘16 or ‘20 primaries down the road. For today, for this election, it’s Mitt or Obama. Deal with what is, not what you’d like it to be.

Please face the fact that there really are 47-49% of the people who are dependent on Government and will vote for 0bama (if they go to the polls). That is why this election will look close up until the end. Plus the fact that the Government is no threatening any pollster that shows 0bama too far behind. If Newt, Herman, or even Rick Perry had won the primary do you really think they would be doing better?

Sarah Palin.

It is an undeniable fact that a lot of the attacks that were made on her over the 4 years originated out of the underground in Romney’s camp....

Most establishment republicans don’t like Sarah but I do and would vote for her in a heart beat...Romney... I pass.

Not to mention the endless slime he laid on any conservative that dare run against him

For the survival of Israel, our Military in the ME and for our own sakes... we had better hope that obama loses. There has NEVER been a worse president than obama... hell the kenyan bastard makes lbj look good. Mitt is just a place holder for the election in 2016. I am under absolutely no illusion as to Mitt... but his private video that was released gives me an inkling of hope.

I just get a giggle out of going back and looking at threads from 6 or 8 months ago. The hypocrisy of the cheerleading squad is astounding.

Just the other day I was accused of being an anti mormon bigot by some clown who attacked me for not hating the “underwear worshipers” enough 8 months ago.

Seems to me that a lot of these good Christians think they’re operating in God’s blind spot and will get a pass.

Well, I could easily vote for an Odinist who is a conservative. Choosing between a faded red or a deep rose leftist is a lot more difficult. 307,212,123 and these two corrupt parties come up with one cnadidate who derives from an Indonesian madrasa, and an opponent who derives from Mexican chicken ranch concubinage.

People think the US will somehow get a pass where Rome and Babylon did not. They are wrong.

“If we carry Iowa, we have so much better of a chance of winning this presidency.” Ann Romney

“We”? Your chances would greatly improve if your husband started going after pResent Zero with the same gusto he demonstrated in attacking conservatives in the primaries.
The sun’ll come up tomorrow, Annie, just sayin’.... we, hmmm. Even if Mitt wins he’s gotta run again in four years, so we’d better be a part of “We.”
