Bravo, Ann Romney!
Richochet ^ | September 22, 2012 | Dave Carter

Posted on 09/23/2012 11:58:33 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

I don't know Ann Romney. I don't know Lee Cary, from the American Thinker, either, but I should like to buy them both dinner to thank them for making an important point yesterday, and it needs to be emphasized. Asked about some of the more counterproductive criticisms made by Republicans, Mrs. Romney replied, "Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring." My thoughts exactly.

Constructive criticism is one thing, but handing ammunition to the opposition is uncalled for. Part of the problem is that I really like some of the people making these remarks, but I wonder if they understand the stratospheric stakes in this election. To observe that Governor's Romney's remarks about the 47 percent of people who pay no income taxes were inexact or haphazardly framed is one thing. But to say, as The Weekly Standard's Bill Kristol (whom I admire tremendously) did, that the Governor's comments were "stupid and arrogant," helps the cause not one bit. Instead, Twitter lit up with one liberal after another using the quote against the Republican nominee. Peggy Noonan, whose work I positively adore, picked up a rhetorical tire iron and went to work on Romney: "It's time to admit the Romney campaign is an incompetent one. It's not big, it's not brave, it's not thoughtfully tackling great issues. It's always been too small for the moment." Well, isn't that just ducky. If General Custer had been afflicted with support like this from his own side, the Indians could have taken the day off. With pay.

In his latest "G-File," the always brilliant, funny and trenchant Jonah Goldberg reminds us that it was the Tea Party and activist base of the Republican party that were most resistant to Governor Romney during the primaries, while the Republican party establishment admonished us repeatedly to please shut up and get behind the man. Now that he's the party nominee, we've rallied to him not because he's morphed into the second coming of Ronald Reagan, but because we understand that this election is for the whole enchilada. Put very simply, if Obamacare isn't repealed, if the debt isn't addressed, if America keeps sitting on her thumbs while her embassies burn, if Iran gets the bomb,…. that's all she wrote. And so the base is working its heart out to send Obama and his comrades packing,….and now the establishment types who told us to get behind Romney, are taking a tire iron to his kneecaps. "Unlike activists," writes Jonah, "it really is my job to say what I think." He immediately adds, however, that, "Still, I think the base might have the wiser take on all this. Win now, argue later." I couldn't agree more, Jonah.

Here's the thing. No candidate is perfect. Romney has areas that he could shore up, certainly. And it is not our place to sacrifice principle in support of any candidate. Encouraging him to take it to Obama in a certain fashion, or offering information that could prove useful to the campaign makes perfect sense to this observer. And if stronger admonishments are in order, perhaps utilizing private channels would be an option. But for heaven's sake, do we have to send gift-wrapped ammunition to Obama and his acolytes in the media?

Jonah is right in another respect. These people get paid to give their opinions. I get paid to move freight and operate outside the climate controlled comfort of media suites. However, I have been blessed beyond measure to offer my thoughts on Ricochet. So in the event that my opinions might coincide on some level with those of the professional punditry, here they are:

* It is my opinion that Barack Obama must be summarily thrown out of office, and that he should take every one of his little czars and minions with him.

* It is my opinion that Democrats in the House and Senate must be shown the door as well.

* It is my opinion that in all likelihood, this is our last chance to preserve America as it was intended by the Founders.

* It is my opinion that if Obamacare is not pulled up by the roots, it will sprout encroachments into the most personal aspects of our lives that will destroy every last vestige of meaningful individual liberty.

* It is my opinion that Mitt Romney is the only realistic alternative we have to the wholesale destruction of our country by an elite who disdains us, disdains our Constitution, and holds in utter contempt the moral and philosophical foundation of our country.

* It is my opinion that if we fail to defeat Obama, our grandchildren and their grandchildren will curse us and utter our names in contempt, and rightly so, because we let their liberty slip through our fingers while we nitpicked and sniped at each other.

* It is my opinion that we're better than that. It is my opinion that we are as equal to the challenge now as our parents and grandparents were in another time. Our heritage is freedom, our gift to those who follow is more of it, not less.

* It is my opinion that it is time to focus our fire on those who seek to shred the Constitution and enslave a great nation to the whims and predilections of a ruling elite.

There, does that help give the pros something to write about? Happy to help, folks. Now, if you'll kindly excuse me, I have to get back behind the wheel.

It never ceases to amaze me how the Holier-Than-Thou Brigade comes marching into a thread, ANY thread these days to attack, denigrate, insult, smear, and snark away at the only possible political ticket that has the potential to defeat that traitorous Kenyan scumbag, and they do it with gleeful abandon, they start asserting that there is no difference between 0bama and Romney, that due to Romney's past or present positions on any number of topics, that we must NOT vote for the Republican ticket, that we must resign ourselves to four more years of the 0bamunist tyranny which is ramping up even now in anticipation of completing their agenda.

And make no mistake: 0bama's regime is an ANTI-CHRISTIAN regime, there is an absolute and easily documented history of how they have acted in ways that are diametrically opposed to any and every Christian doctrine, and even more: they have demonstrated their affinity with proven haters of America, from the macro level of nation-state, down to the micro level of individual God-hating, America-reviling individuals.

But the Holier-Than-Thou Brigade (hereafter 'HTTB') sees no hypocrisy in their default support of 0bama via their openly declared hostility to Romney & Ryan. In their delusional minds, they see themselves as some sort of ragtag 'God's Army', refusing to vote AGAINST 0bama, because Romney "just isn't conservative enough". So in order that the rest of us, AND what's left of our American Republic, may be 'taught the proper lesson', the HTTB nit wits will rejoice if and when 0bama wins that second term on November 6th. Their hypocritical and judgmental tongues are wound up tighter than bedsprings, cocked and loaded to unleash unlimited "WE TOLD YOU SO's!!!!" and to admonish one and all that because we "didn't listen to them", that it is OUR fault that 0bama will have won a second term.

Can you follow that circular lack-of-logic?

1.) The HTTB crowd conducts constant and consistent attacks on the political team that OPPOSES 0bama-Biden.

2.) The HTTB justification for (1) is that Romney & Ryan "are not conservative enough", and they cite any and every possible factoid they can find (cherry picking data, just like liberals do), and they accuse anyone who expresses support FOR what is the 'anti-0bama team' (aka Romney & Ryan) of being 'MittBots', 'RINOs', 'sell-outs', 'compromisers', and all of that garbage that everyone has seen way too much already, all the while accusing those supporting Romney & Ryan of being 'uncivil' (and here is a clue for those members of the HTTB about 'incivility', you REAP what you SOW!)

3.) And the HTTB is always willing to start off their backstabbing by quoting any number of Scriptures which are conveniently chosen to somehow add 'weight' to their attacks (because truth be told, they are in fact LIGHTWEIGHTS), and the inevitable anti-Mormon slurs start getting slung around, with one truly notorious FR poster/spammer carpet bombing threads with every imaginable piece of anti-Mormon invective, and yet they fail to comprehend (as my good FRiend StephenJohnBanker has said many times) that WE ARE NOT ELECTING A POPE, we are electing a President. Mitt Romney's religious beliefs are between him and God. And the HTTB crew needs to decide if they are more comfortable with a charitable, generous, non-smoking, non-drinking Mormon who doesn't beat or cheat on his wife, whose family is a model of upright and moral living, OR they would prefer to have the anti-Christian Kenyan-Marxist in Chief ruling over our Nation for ANOTHER 4 years?

4.) And as other reality-based FReepers have noted lately, the Romney-haters seldom have anything critical to say about 0bama and his abominable gang of liars, crooks, schemers and traitors. Why you ask? Because in their fevered minds, they truly DO believe that there is no difference between 0bama and Romney. They are utterly disconnected from reality. They have snorted, injected or swallowed the substance called '110 percent ideologically and conservatively more pure than any other substance' and believe they and they alone are the bearers of the torch, the defenders of the faith, the holders of all things conservative that we cherish and that ANYBODY who has dared to vote AGAINST 0bama by pulling the lever for Romney & Ryan is a traitor to Christian conservatism.

THAT is the sort of unhinged madness that we are facing FRiends, we not only have to fight the 0bamunists between now and November 6th, we have to try and avoid the knives in the back being thrust in by those allegedly ON OUR OWN SIDE!

And here is the difference between them and us:

WE view this election as the final and last opportunity to save our Nation from tyranny and that 'Thousand Years of Darkness' that Ronald Reagan warned us of. The HTTB views this election as THEIR final opportunity to prove themselves right, and if that means contributing openly or covertly to the victory of 0bama-Biden, then so be it. Their pride, ego and arrogance have consumed them and in order to justify themselves, America must be sentenced to another 4 years of 0bama because "we deserve it".

Ask yourselves, knowing what you know of Ronald Reagan, the greatest President of the 20th Century, if HE would be sitting on the sidelines, casting aspersions at Romney & Ryan, pontificating on how his 'pure' conservative beliefs would NEVER allow him to support the current GOP ticket,

OR:

Would the Gipper be out there on the front lines, encouraging, cheering, rallying voters to vote OUT that filthy Communist in the White House and to vote for Romney & Ryan on November 6th?

You all know what Reagan would do. He put our Nation first, in all things. And that is what we ALL must do now, and fight without ceasing to rid America of the curse of 0bama.

Now let's DO it.

Romney and his staff were the ones who leaked and smeared Sarah Palin. He did this to be able to run in 4 yrs. By doing that he helped Obama win. I know how horrible Obama is so did Romney. But he put his ambitions first he did not care about the Country. Romney is only concerned about Romney.

Um, not quite. Yours and your (what was it mkjessup called you? Oh, yes, the "Holier-Than-Thou-Brigade (hereafter 'HTTB')"...that's what's a keeper), the HTTB post nothing but JUDGMENTS against every person who disagrees with you. I, as a Christian, will continue to point out that in your HTTB vigilantism, you're acting CONTRARY to the Scriptures, which reveal exactly how those who call themselves Christian are commanded by God to act:

A short excerpt follows:

Paul has much to say about how believers in Christ should conduct themselves. The Apostle Paul addressed all areas of our lives and how we should interact with others at home, work, society, and church, and whether the people we interact with are believers or, especially, unbelievers. One of Paul's greatest concerns is for a Christian to not cause others to stumble, both the believer and the unbeliever. A Christian's primary mission is to further the gospel of Christ. Jeopardizing that mission occurs when Christians act and speak in ways which are contrary to the Scriptures. Any time a Christian's behavior is in contradiction to the Scriptures, it is sin at work in their life. It becomes the responsibility of fellow believers to point out these failings so that the Holy Spirit can work with that person and bring him into alignment with how He would have them act.

When a Christian sees another behaving in a manner that is contrary to Scripture, it is their duty to admonish them for such behaviors. Remaining silent in the presence of sin is sin. (2 Timothy 3:16 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness"; Thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him." Leviticus 19:17; Acts 8:30 Philip ran up to the [the eunuch's] chariot and heard [him] reading Isaiah the prophet. "Do you understand what you are reading?" Philip asked. 31"How can I," said [the eunuch], "unless someone explains it to me?")

Paul has grave warnings for people who live lives which are virtually indistinguishable from the lives they led prior to their conversion. Leading such a life contrary to Scripture can create great spiritual harm, not only to the person sinning, but to others as well because the sinning Christian has become a stumbling block to another's spiritual growth and creates a high probability that an unbeliever may reject Christ.

James, Jesus' brother, had much to say, as well, as to how Christians are to conduct themselves and the new purpose in their lives once they have become a Christian.

James 1:

19 My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. 21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you. 22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. 26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless.
James points out that when someone is a Christian but acts as ungodly as before, their conversion has no effect on furthering the gospel of Christ. Someone who doesn't stand out as different in a good way because they are not acting and behaving better than an unsaved person is useless to God. Other Scriptures have pointed out that it goes beyond uselessness, it actually becomes a negative because it is creates greater harm with others than had that person not been saved at all. (James 2: "20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless? 21 Was not our father Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did.")

* * *

A few excerpts of the Apostle Paul's writings in Galatians follow:

Galations 5:

13 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

If you, or anyone else, requires additional Scriptures which instruct Christians how we are to treat and interact with others, please feel free to FReepmail me and I will provide them to you.

Great post, once again, mk! Your observations are spot on. It sure would be nice to see the HTTB folks attack the real enemy: the evil Marxist occupying the White House and destroying this country.

You are a liar. If you cannot absolutely prove with solid evidence that Romney wanted 0bama, you are a lying troll.

Don’t blame me for Obama.

If you persist in your attacks on the only political ticket with the potential to defeat 0bama, you and others like you most certainly will be blamed because you are giving aid, comfort and assistance TO 0bama with such attacks.

If you want to thank Romney for helping give us Obama go ahead. I will not.

Romney did NOT give us 0bama, it was John McCain throwing the election that gave us 0bama. Now either prove that 'Romney wanted 0bama' or GTF outta here.

Telling the truth on you stealth 0bama supporters would naturally seem 'nasty' to you, but what is nastier is your hypocrisy in pretending to be some sort of pure and pious Christian, while attacking the only possible political ticket which has a shot of removing the most ANTI-CHRISTIAN regime in American history. You serve 0bama with such antics, and your foul duplicity is on display for all to see.

This yield to Mormonism in the name of Christ line is bizarre, but so is the fact of you guys being unable to defend Mitt and Ann, and their extraordinary arrogance.

It isn't 'yielding to Mormonism' you fool, we are not electing a Pope or a religious leader, we are electing a President of the United States and you and your fellow pompous blowhards are doing all you can to be sure that 0bama prevails, and Romney fails. You are a Judas masquerading as purity personified. You stink.

Nobody ever has been able to defend the Romneys to conservatives though.

THESE conservatives didn't need anyone to 'defend the Romneys', they are four-square behind them, support them, and will be voting for them. So tell us Ansel, are you a better conservative and a better Christian than the following staunch conservatives?

Michele Bachmann
Herman Cain
Newt Gingrich
Sarah Palin
Rick Perry
Jim Robinson
Paul Ryan
Rick Santorum
Phyllis Schlafly
Fred Thompson
Allen West

I'd like to see you get up in THEIR faces and tell them how they shouldn't be supporting Romney & Ryan, and spit your bile and judge THEIR character, tell THEM that America is better off with 4 more years of 0bama, because THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE ADVOCATING.

Oh they ‘get it’ Nic, they may be living in a delusional state but they know what they’re doing. In order to justify their attacks on Romney, Romney must lose on November 6th which means that 0bama will win. That will allow them to take comfort in America being punished with 4 more years of the 0bamunist abomination, which will somehow validate their backstabbing the only possible chance we have to defeat the most anti-Christian administration ever seen in this Nation.

The HTTB crew cannot abide the prospect of dirtying their lily white robes and linens by voting for Romney & Ryan on November 6th, they would rather America die first.

Here are Mitt and Ann raising money for abortions at Planned parenthood. They weren't just there to lend republican cred, they also cut them a check.

How was that a threat Jim? It was nothing more than rhetorical exuberance. Does anyone believe that the poster in question actually thought I was about to let out the clutch and literally run them down? All I did was call them out on their continued default-advocacy which benefits no one but 0bama.

While I think of it, would you agree or not that posters who are more enthusiastic about attacking Romney & Ryan than attacking 0bama are in fact aiding and assisting in the effort to re-elect 0bama in November?

The HTTB crew cannot abide the prospect of dirtying their lily white robes and linens by voting for Romney & Ryan on November 6th, they would rather America die first.

And in the name of Christ, they do this?

It is my firm belief that the HTTP's behaviors and actions, giving support, aid, and give comfort to an ANTI-CHRISTIAN muslim and his re-election cannot possibly be the will or desire of the One True God (though they appear to claim otherwise). Perhaps they're worshiping some other god, not the God of the Jews and the Christians.

Good question, as it is self-evident that only one of two people will occupy the White House, either Romney or Obama.

Ansel? Anytime you are unable to refute an argument, anytime you cannot handle the truth, you consider it a 'personal attack'. That is standard behavior for liberals.

As for your latest post, submit your invoice for 'services rendered' to:

0bama for America
1600 Pennsylvania Ave
Washington DC 20666

Who benefited from your post #75?

Here he is:

If Obama wins it will be because the liberals, RINOs and people like you nominated the liberal Romney. You knew he was for abortion,gay marriage,RomneyCare, cap & trade, trying to force Catholic hospitals to do abortions, same sex adoptions and most other liberal issues but he’s your guy and he has an R beside his name. You could find the facts about Romney staff being behind the original attacks on Sarah Palin but it would not make any difference. You are too busy with childish insults.

I just love these Threads. They start out with anything “Romney” and turn into a Romney hate fest.

To an unaware observer, it would appear that we were in the throes of the Republican Primary season with the Conservatives bashing Romney to get their chosen Candidate to the General Election to face the greatest threat to the future of our Country, Pharaoh Obama.

But no, it's like the Twilight Zone. The Republican Primaries apparently never happened and Obama must be the Conservative fighting Romney's ascension since he is the only person getting in the way.

Free Republic, doing the work that DU and Daily Kos obviously don't need to do. You all keep fighting amongst yourselves. I'm following the Levin Doctrine. since my guy Newt didn't make the cut.

Yeah, defending Mitt is impossible, so most don’t try.

It is impossible to deal with the facts of Mitt Romney and his wife Ann so his devotees resort to personal attacks and personal insults.

Here is how Ann and Mitt Romney relate to the issue of immigration.

Here is another insight into his dishonesty, my jaw dropped when I saw Mitt denying his illegals in the 2007 debate, and was not surprised what came of it a week later.

Governor Mitt, with all of his state resources and security, were interacting with the Guatemalan illegals at their private home for 10 years. The landscaper that the illegals worked for, was a naturalized Colombian himself, (A naturalized Colombian, Guatemalan illegals, and a sitting Governor), IDs better have been checked.

In December of 2006, the republican Governor was exposed, and suffered national embarrassment for using illegals for 10 years.

In December of 2007, in a national debate, Rudy Giuliani accused Mitt Romney of having run a “Sanctuary Mansion”. On national TV, Mitt Romney indignantly denied the claim.

A few days after the debate, the Boston Globe decided to look again at Mitt’s house, and guess what, they found Guatemalan illegals, they were working for the same Colombian, MITT HAD NEVER FIRED THEM!

Ten years and a national scandal, turned into 11 years, and a second national scandal, with all the same players, the same “contractor”, Guatemalan illegals, and the same Mitt Romney and his wife interacting with them at their home during the week.

Did you realize the primaries are OVER?

In case you didn’t get the message, Newt didn’t win them (my choice), neither did Bachmann, Santorum, Perry, or Cain, but now they’re all behind Romney, instead of helping Obama get elected, like you’re now doing.

As someone who just arrived last April, you need to give your head a shake and understand that the primary season is over. Romney was never ANYBODY's first choice, he was not mine, and I bashed and thrashed him without mercy up until last month when it was clear that he was going to be the GOP nominee. I wasn't happy about that, and few conservatives are. But now that he IS the nominee, we have a choice between sitting on our hands and letting 0bama win another term in office which will mean the end of our Republic as we know it, OR we can backstab the only ticket that has a chance to throw that filthy Communist out of the White House.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem and if you're going to do nothing but attack Romney & Ryan, you are providing effective default support and aid to re-electing 0bama. Don't kid yourself about that. If you want the most anti-Christian regime in history to have four more years to rule this Nation, then keep crying in your Fruit Loops about how Sarah Palin was wronged, but while you're at it, ask yourself why SHE is supporting Romney and Ryan?

Let me help you out with this, ok kid?

Sarah Palin is supporting the GOP ticket because SHE understands the urgency of defeating 0bama.

Do you? Or are you smarter than Sarah Palin?

So, instead of making personal attacks against fellow conservatives, and the only person who has a chance of beating the anti-Christian muslim marxist, why can't you answer the question:

Do you know of any other way to get rid of that filthy Communist in the White House besides pulling the lever for Romney & Ryan? If so, by all means enlighten us.

You may begin at any time.

Freepers are fully capable of making their own vote so, keeping a clear and honest knowledge of who and what Romney is while they do it, shouldn’t be overwhelming to them.

There is a truly important need to keep Mitt Romney from fulfilling his goal of revenge against conservatism in America, and his goal to destroy it.

Conservatives cannot allow the deification of the hard left, pro-abortion, Romneys, take place.

The 65 year old career politician has a true self, and we can’t pretend that he doesn’t.

That's all well and good, but it has nothing to do with my Post.

You can Vote for the Legalizing Choom guy, the FR guy or the recent Democrat convert guy, but it won't make a bit of difference.

There are only two choices left, therefore I follow the Levin Doctrine. You do whatever you like.

“Romney arrogant? I think that’s the PERCEPTION and the MEDIA NARRATIVE but donating over $4 MILLION to charity versus Vice President Biden’s $360 is a statement in selflessness and giving. There are countless stories of Mitt and his son’s traveling to families in need to help them and without ANY ‘spiking the football’. The media won’t talk about Mitt and Ann’s numerous charitable activities. I think Ann would be a fantastic First Lady too.. She exudes dignity, wisdom and strength.”

Dittos on this. Putting politics entirely aside, the Romney family are good people who have been trashed by the media worse than Richard Jewell, who was falsely accused of terrorist attack. Romney is like Zimmerman, trashed by a media with a (not-so-hidden) agenda.
Even the way the media is using a doctored tape (did you know the Nation tape actually has a gap of 2 minutes in it?).

You are absolutely correct. And you can see more trashing of Romney just up thread at #89, which proves that the media has more than willing handmaidens anxious to do their job for them right here on FR.

No one votes for me, and no one can limit me to 2 names to choose from.

I remember just last month when Mitt was thought to be pro-life, and to support the GOP pro-life platform, and how many people believed his claim that he “would be delighted” to sign a “conception” constitutional amendment.

Watch the short video in post 75, and then lay back and think of Mitt and Ann.

CBS-August 27, 2012. Mitt returns to his roots.

PELLEY: Well, the platform as written at this convention for the Republicans does not allow for exceptions on abortion with regard to the health of the mother or rape or incest. Is that where you are?

ROMNEY: No. My position has been clear throughout this campaign. I’m in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother.

When you have a chance, check out the SNL “News” segment with Seth Meyers from last Saturday night.

Not a mention of the Mideast or Obama’s incompetence that resulted in the Torture and Murder of our Ambassador. It was bash the Evil Rich Romney Family, not just Mitt but his Wife and kids.

The Propaganda is thick with those folks. They have six more shows before the Election to save their guy Obama and they are pulling out all the stops.

Just watched part of the Emmy's. Game Change won best miniseries and the ditz Jullianne Moore who played Sarah Palin won for best Actress. She even made a comment about Sarah's opinion of her fantasy role.

Those people are beyond rational thought. They loved sticking it to Sarah Palin one more time. Liberals HATE US, or as Rush said, they would pick destroying Conservatives over destroying the Jihadists.

Once again, 0bama thanks you for your support. Every post you make attacking Romney benefits 0bama, and it is clear from your words and deeds that you would prefer to see 4 more years of 0bama, than to even consider voting for Romney & Ryan.

Didn't I read that Romney said he misspoke about the “Heath of the Mother” comment? Doesn't matter, NO PRESIDENT can overturn Roe v Wade all by himself.

Obama believes in Infanticide and he is the only alternative to Romney, so what's your point?

Don't bother answering. It really doesn't matter to me what your point is. If you get your way Obama is running things until January 2017. We will both be enjoying that wonderful event should it happen.

Ansel12 is a charter member of the HTTB ('Holier-Than-Thou-Brigade') and nobody is more conservative than they are. They cannot bring themselves to vote for Romney & Ryan, therefore their default position ends up being one of supporting the re-election of 0bama with their incessant and never ending attacks on Romney. It is clear to even a casual observer that they hate Romney. They despise everything he stands for, so much so that they will gladly leap into the arms of the most anti-Christian regime America has ever seen.
