Romney says his campaign doesn’t need a ‘turnaround’
Yahoo News—The Ticket ^ | September 23, 2012 | Holly Bailey

Posted on 09/23/2012 8:51:31 PM PDT by Olog-hai

Mitt Romney insisted his campaign is not in need of a "turnaround" in spite of polls showing President Barack Obama expanding his lead in battleground states.

In an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes," the Republican presidential nominee rejected criticism from conservative pundits who have called his campaign incompetent.

"It doesn't need a turnaround," Romney insisted, pointing to national polls that have him "tied" with Obama. "I've got a very effective campaign. It's doing a very good job." …

Try to separate freerepublic discussions about public figures, world figures, and presidential candidates, from personal attacks on fellow freepers.

You personally attack Mitt Romney and his wife at every opportunity, and thread. If an opportunity doesn’t arise, it’s created.

OTOH, you claim you’re being personally attack when a factual statement is posted about your comments.

Once again el Revolto Feline, I have addressed a critical point of the thread, which is the consistent backstabbing attacks upon the Romney-Ryan ticket by dedicated, Romney-hating posters (which need not be named, as everyone certainly knows who they are by now), and I must say: don't even try that schoolyard game of "oh you said mean things, I won't vote for your friend for class president". And I note that you couldn't help yourself by including that phrase "Mormon hero" when the topic of Romney's religious beliefs was NEVER a point within this thread, so I shall conclude by saying "physician, heal thyself".

Surely you can understand the difference between personal attacks on freepers, and discussing public figures in the news and politics and history, etc?

Your candidate is not the same as a freeper, for one thing, he would have been banned as a troll, Mitt Romney could never be a freeper.

His support for the homosexual agenda alone, would prevent that.

Everything you just said is correct, except the part about him being a “default” Obama supporter. He is a blatant Obama supporter masquerading as a “concerned conservative.”

This is a troll, he is the devil from hell, and he has been repeating this same “concerned” Washington elite media mantra crap for I don’t know how long. All you have to do is look at how many posts he’s posting on the same exact talking points every single day to know he is as phony as a three dollar bill.

Don’t believe a word that he is saying.

First of all, in your little world of conservative ideological perfection, ANY post which does not agree with you and takes issue with you, constitutes a 'personal attack'. Let's make that clear.

Your candidate is not the same as a freeper

So who is YOUR candidate Ansel? In the interest of full disclosure, tell us who YOU support, ok?

for one thing, he [Romney] would have been banned as a troll, Mitt Romney could never be a freeper.

If Romney was a FReeper, you would have been riding the lightning long ago for your persistent and never ending attacks on him.

Lucky you.

Here's a question for you: Would Ronald Reagan be supporting the GOP ticket this year, or would he sit it out, citing his superior conservative credentials like you do?

Really? Jesus is so much for Mormon Bishop Romney, that he orders all critiquing of him to end?

You aren't really speaking for Jesus are you? Is this where the nomination of the pro-abortion, Mitt Romney is leading?

Ahem. Since your entire post that I just quoted was completely unrelated to the topic of the posted article, I assume you're including yourself, yes?

Perhaps you'll be willing, then, to answer this question as none of the other anti-Romneyites are:

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.

If you can point to any part of the article in question where the topic of being Mormon was brought up, which might justify your earlier comments about 'magic underwear', 'Mormon hero', or your slurs just now uttered, then I suppose there is no reason to call you to account for it.

(Saving you another attack.)

You have Ansel12 Disease. Anything challenging your words constitutes a 'personal attack'. Get professional help.

I will address the posted article, once again and not any idiotic diversion: the Romney campaign is in serious trouble and most, perhaps all conservative commentators out there agree. What to do? Will the campaign address the issues raised, listen to the advice offered? Reject it publicly?

Speaking of Reagan, do you know why Romney left the republican party in 1979? Do you know why he eventually became a supporter of democrats, and even a democrat fund raiser to defeat republicans, and even voted democrat?

I don't agree with the biased, democrat funded, democrat-loading, false polls.

I don't think Romney's in trouble, the media's wishful thinking otherwise. They're in meltdown mode, especially on the heals of the Middle East disaster.

Romney does, however, need to be more like a Newt in his style, and less nice.

I still haven't seen you state just who it is you are supporting. I still haven't seen you explain why you seem to think that it would be better for America to have 4 more years of 0bama than to vote in Romney to replace him. Tell us now: is Romney just as bad as 0bama? Here is your big chance Ansel, man up and tell us what you really think.

Speaking of Reagan, do you know why Romney left the republican party in 1979? Do you know why he eventually became a supporter of democrats, and even a democrat fund raiser to defeat republicans, and even voted democrat?

So would Reagan be supporting the GOP ticket this year or not?

“Romney had good enough campaign to beat fantastic candidates such as Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and gov. Perry in the primaries. He will prevail in general election if people wake up and smell the coffee about what the radical socialist from Chicago is doing to the country. If not we will soon be Greece. People deserve the government they vote for.”


Mitt Romney did that basically with a lot of help from the “conservative” media that did everything it could to undermine each of our legitimate candidates. Bloody Thursday did not come from some Mittens speech, but by a coordinated attack on Newt with lying stories that no one, not even Rush, bothered to tell the truth about until after the damage had already been done. He followed it up with lying political ads, aided and abetted by the media at large. Then he was left alone with Santorum, whose campaign consisted of “God loves me more” with little to no specifics in his speeches, with big banners in the background that read “COURAGE!”, with a campaign website with an issues page that began with an article on the evils of pornagraphy, and all of this he did in the backdrop of a political campaign where open primaries and negative campaigning served to suppress the conservative vote (Romney’s states were all won with below average turnout). Essentially, Romney was handed the nomination simply because he dominated with big money and had the media on his side.

Now he is facing a candidate who is also a master of media manipulation, has near unlimited funds, and is more charismatic. And Romney, like Santorum, is on the side of having no real ideas or plans, with every thing he does support being contradicted now and then by himself directly or by his subordinates. Mittens is running as the “I’m not Obama” candidate, and I’m afraid he is so utterly an empty suit and so demonstrably a liar that winning this election, even in this economy, is going to be extraordinarily tough. All these people talking about how Willard is an awesome business man who did this or that don’t care that this “businessman” inflicted RomneyCare on his state and was in bed with the left from global warming to the war on the coal industry to tax increases (ahem* they were increased fees and closing of loopholes) to on and on and on, a miriad of job destroying political positions he embraced in other to out commie the pink-commies of his state. But because we are all supposed to be loyal Republicans before conservatives, we’re supposed to ignore this reality and just stand stupefied as we watch his campaign crash and burn when it should be leading by double digits.

All that his devotees can hope for, is for anti-incumbent gravity to be in their favor and for it to carry Mitt over the finish line.

Romney will remain a "generalist", as much as he can get away with. It worked for Obama (nobody much questioned him). Specifics are expected from Republicans, so they can be picked apart. If Democrats are called out on specifics by a few, it's only to give cover for the rest (of the pom-pom wavers) who change the subject...

You have long been correct. Bad things are wrong. BLOAT and keep it dry.

But then he's not Conservative. Grats GOP, either way you still win with or without Romney.

And America looses either way.

Facts that you do not question, you just don’t approve of freepers knowing them.

SO once and for all Ansel, TELL all of us what your objective truly is in posting all of these 'facts' about Mitt Romney? Are you just trying to be a helpful, informative FReeper, raising our consciousness and awareness about that wicked man? I implore you, please PLEASE tell us who we should vote for, if not Romney & Ryan on November 6th. You don't want anybody voting for him, so tell us Ansel, PLEASE tell us, who are YOU voting for, so we may all be enlightened and likewise walk in your path of conservative purity?

In other words: who are YOU supporting? It's time to show your cards, and I'm callin'.
