  • Romney Comes to the Rescue of the First Amendment? Give me a Break!

    There was quite a fuss this week over how ObamaCare will trample religious freedom by requiring religious hospitals, colleges and charities to provide insurance coverage for contraception, sterilization and the ”morning-after” abortion pill, all of which are opposed by the Catholic Church and the latter opposed by most protestant denominations. Romney stepped into the brouhaha by denouncing this action as an assault upon the First Amendment which, of course, guarantees the freedom to practice one’s religion without government interference. He even heroically said he would overturn such regulations if elected President. The problem with Romney’s bravado is that when he...

    It’s no accident that Mitt Romney has done so well during this election cycle. He has excellent name recognition, he’s extremely well organized, he’s a great fundraiser, he’s become a polished debater, and he’s not gaffe prone. His business experience doesn’t hurt either, although it is worth noting that the only reason he’s able to brag that he’s not a “career politician” is because he lost to Ted Kennedy for the Senate and probably would have lost in 2008 had he run for governor of Massachusetts again. All that being said, there’s a reason why Mitt Romney has been unable...
  • Romney's fundraisers are quietly amassing millions

    WASHINGTON — A few weeks before the Republican primary in Florida in January, the billionaire owner of the NFL's Miami Dolphins hosted a fundraiser for Mitt Romney at his oceanfront home in Palm Beach. The average voter wouldn't know about the event at the home of Stephen Ross because Romney's campaign doesn't follow the practice of other major presidential candidates who have willingly identified big-money fundraisers and the amounts they collect. A review by The Associated Press of campaign records and other documents reveals hints about the vast national network of business leaders bringing in millions to elect Romney. The...
  • McCain: I think Palin should be the VP nominee

    Yesterday, Sarah Palin emphasized in her interview with Matt Lauer that whoever becomes the GOP nominee should not play it safe in his selection of a vice presidential running mate. She declined to answer outright whether she thinks this year’s VP nominee should have more experience on the national stage than she did in 2008, but she did say she thinks the presidential nominee should “go rogue” with his pick. Former GOP presidential nominee John McCain backed up those statements today with this: On CBS’s This Morning, McCain, the 2008 GOP nominee, was asked whether he agreed with his former...

She argued that the eventual presidential nominee shouldn’t “think they have to go with somebody necessarily safe.” Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0412/74808.html#ixzz1r4wXmgrb

    If you were trying to come up with the most atrocious candidate imaginable to go toe-to-toe with Barack Obama in 2012, you couldn’t do much better than Mitt Romney. He was an unpopular moderate governor who lost 2 out of the 3 major elections he’s run in and whose signature issue Romneycare is an enormous failure. Moreover, he’s so uninspiring that he makes Bob Dole look like Ronald Reagan and that’s before you consider his incessant flip-flopping that makes it impossible to really know where he stands on any issue. Romney’s candidacy also runs counter to almost every political trend...

    Mitt Romney won contests in Maryland and Washington, D.C. on Tuesday to tighten his grip on the race for the Republican presidential nomination and looked to land a big blow on rival Rick Santorum with an expected victory in Wisconsin. It was a strong start for the front-runner on a big day in the Republican search for a candidate to send against Democratic President Barack Obama in the November 6 election. Television networks projected that the former Massachusetts Governor Romney was the easy winner over Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul in Maryland. NBC predicted Romney also won in the...

    Today's politics schedule looks like a snoozer. But wait! There's more! The primaries in Maryland (37) and the District of Columbia (19) look largely safely in Mitt Romney's delegate column, adding to his existing 568. Wisconsin too (42), although Rick Santorum has campaigned hard there. Since Iowa, where Santorum campaigned for a year to win the caucuses by two dozen votes, Romney has ruled the Midwest. He plans an election night event in Wisconsin, usually a strong sign that internal polls indicate a likely win. But even if the Pennsylvanian pulled off a Badger upset, he'd still have less than...

    Harford County going 2-1 for Romney, means the 1st District is lost. Santorum only winning tiny Garrett at the moment in the 6th, but in all likelihood looks to be a sweep of all the delegates for Romney and possible majority win.

    RightWingNews.com ^ | 18 Feb 2012 | Steve Baldwin
    Early on in the 2012 campaign Mitt Romney expressed support for global warming in various ways, the typical comment being this: “I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that.” He holds this belief despite the growing body of evidence that global warming theory is based upon false assumptions and despite the last two winters being among the coldest in recent history. Romney has also called for the Federal government to “reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases,” which is code, of course, for creating massive new government programs despite America’s air...

    Before I get to the thread title material, let me say that Bush is not going away anytime soon. Obama brought him up today with Medicare Part D and will continue to bring him up again & again. If Romney praises Med. part D, Obama can say "See, Romney agrees with me that the first Republican president was right about the federal gov't..." as he said today. If Romney attacks Med. Part D as being big gov't, Obama can retort "Why is Romney attacking me for attacking Bush? Romney has also attacked Bush." And the issue of whether or not...
  • Why Mittcare Makes Mitt Romney An Ineffective Presidential Candidate

    04/03/2012 2:23:01 PM PDT · by SoConPubbie · 36 replies
    It’s no secret that I take a very dim view of Mitt Romney . If you want to know why, here’s a 2007 piece I wrote called The Conservative Case Against Mitt Romney. Still, back in 2007, I generally considered Romneycare to be a political positive for Mitt. Mitt should be talking health care all the time. It’s a hot issue, he has done something with it before, and nobody else is addressing it very effectively. That’s not because I liked the program. It honestly didn’t turn out to be all that big of an issue one way or another...

    From Politico, a disturbing article about some of Mitt Romney’s donors. (H/T Doug Ross) Excerpt: Will Mitt Romney flip-flop on climate change if he’s elected president? Some big donors are betting on it. Romney and his super PAC have taken millions from funders with strong green streaks — despite the fact that the former Massachusetts governor has run to the right in the primary, proclaiming doubts about global-warming science and trashing President Barack Obama’s greenhouse gas emissions policies. Julian Robertson, founder of the Tiger Management hedge fund, helped put cap-and-trade legislation on the map with $60 million in contributions over...

    How depressing. Conservatives remain divided this election cycle while the most liberal candidate for the GOP nomination in decades continues to pile up delegates. Meanwhile, the evidence continues to mount that Romney will govern to the left of George Bush – either one. Romney’s effort to portray himself as a conservative has had great success, primarily due to a black out on Romney’s record not only by the mainstream press but also by much of the conservative media. Moreover, much of America’s conservative “leadership” has decided to give Romney a pass. I posted a piece here a few weeks ago...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 040312 | Paul Bedard
    Mitt Romney’s slow but seemingly successful trudge to the GOP nomination aside, President Obama is a virtual lock to win a second term, according to a blockbuster election analysis by Ipsos. The bottom line, said Ipsos’ polling director Clifford Young: If Obama’s weak approval rating stays at 47 percent, there is an 85 percent chance he wins reelection. Should it rise to 50 percent or better, which is the goal of the Obama-Biden campaign, he stands a 99 percent chance of winning. “The Republican primaries are nothing more than an interesting side-show to an eventual Obama victory,” said Young, managing...

    RightWingNews.com ^ | John Hawkins
    Mitt Romney was a moderate governor in Massachusetts with an unimpressive record of governance. He left office with an approval rating in the thirties and his signature achievement, Romneycare, was a Hurricane Katrina style disaster for the state. Since that’s the case, it’s fair to ask what a Republican who’s not conservative and can’t even carry his own state brings to the table for GOP primary voters. The answer is always the same: Mitt Romney is supposed to be “the most electable” candidate. This is a baffling argument because many people just seem to assume it’s true, despite the plethora...
