Here we go again. This is as predictable as 2008. This is as predictable as the sun rising. Mitt Romney has once again shown up for debate club while Barack Obama is showing up for fight club.
What has happened this time and will they ever learn?
Let’s take the easy answer first. The Republicans, at least the establishment Republicans, will never learn. Their country club inbreeding makes fighting anathema to them.
But what happened?
Joe Ricketts, the founder of TD Ameritrade and a self made Billionaire wanted to create a super PAC and run commercials exploring the relationship between Barack Obama and his America hating, racist, Marxist former pastor Jeremiah Wright.
The media went into red alert, ultra hysteric overdrive. It is racist they denounced immediately.
David Axelrod went to Twitter and said, “Will Mitt Romney stand up like John McCain did?”
Romney and his people bit.
And Romney is supposed to be smart?
Romney repudiated the proposed super PAC and its ad. Just like the golfer who accidentally moves the ball and calls a penalty on himself, Romney stepped forward thinking he would be declared a great sportsman, while the left laughs at him behind his back, planning to wipe him out.
This is fight club, but as always the Republicans think it is debate club. Some how they think, even if they lose, as long as they do it with style and according to the rules of polite fairness, they are ahead in the game.
What the hell does Mitt Romney think is going to happen this summer? While he declares one of the most damaging issues he could hit Obama on off limits, just like that nitwit John McCain did four years ago, Obama and the left are about to launch a slanderous campaign on Romney and the Mormon Church.
Such stupidity is enough to make me want to reach for a large and cold bottle of diet vodka and I don’t even drink.
The media never vetted Obama in 2008. Obama sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for twenty years listening to him spew his racist, anti-American Marxist sewage. Most people go to a church because they agree with what is said, believed or taught by that church. If a Republican candidate were a member of Westboro Baptist church does anyone not believe that would a huge media issue?
Even though we have had four years of Obama, this is still relevant because if Obama is reelected, he will be free of the shackles of another election and what will he do when he does not have to face the voters again?
Jeremiah Wright is an important issue. In his book, “The Amateur,” Ed Klein writes that, “Until Obama married Michelle Robinson in 1991 when he was thirty years old, his most significant adult relationship was with Jeremiah Wright.”
If Wright has been in his pulpit screaming “God damn America!” and Barack Obama was simply sitting there absorbing all of this, what does it say about Obama? Wright has been uttering racist trash for decades. How the hell did Obama not know what Wright was saying? The answer is, there is no way he could not have. Especially when as Klein writes, Wright was his most significant adult relationship before he got married.
Obama never denounced or repudiates Wright until the media fire storm hit. When Obama was kicking off his campaign in 2007, he was going to have Wright deliver the invocation until right before the event, the first media storm over Wright’s comments hit. What does this say about Obama? He had to know what Wright said and believed and he still wanted him to be a part of his campaign.
The media had jumped all over this story to denounce any inquiry into the relationship between Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright as racist.
Just wait until this summer and this fall. We will hear it all about the Mormon Church. We will hear all about the fact that Mormons practiced polygamy and that they at one time did not accept black members. Those attacks will not be considered off limits. In fact, the media will join in them, asking if Mitt Romney’s grandfather was a polygamist and why there is a branch of the Romney family in Mexico.
Mitt Romney was quite eager to destroy his opponents in the Republican Primary. He needs to show the same zeal for destroying Obama. It is time for him to quit polishing is fingernails and get into the game.
This is not debate club. This is fight club. Chicago rules apply here and if Romney is not willing to kick, claw, spit and bite beat Obama in a street fight, we might as well all go home and pray there is a United States left four years from now.
I am sorry, but I and many others explained repeatedly WHY the GOP should NEVER choose Romney as its nominee.
Those who chose Romney need to find some way to either get him to lie well, and convince us he understands and will defend our constitution or find some way to get like-minded moderates and progressives to elect him.
Yet Romney instead demands we accept a "progressive" tax system. Romney seems already to be siding with those in congress eager and willing to "FIX" Obamacare with a Romney-endorsed alternative federal LAW. Romney refuses to specify any specific agencies he'd eliminate and spending he'd CUT, not just slow the growth of.
You folks that supported him all along need to communicate to him what it will require to get the votes of constitutional, conservatives and Christians.
Simply saying we must embrace a Massachusetts liberal-progressive didn't work with Dole, Bush 41, or McCain, and will not work for Romney.
Romney, and his supporters must earn our votes ... we cannot cast them like pearls before swine.
If you think there is no Constitution loving candidate, you have ignored the one who is: Ron Paul. He is qualified in a way that romney and barry will never be, and as for leadership, you must have missed the many rallies where thousands showed up. I saw democrats and independents registering republican just to vote for him. I saw first time registrations just to vote for him. I think our nation deserves better, too, and that only lies with one man in this race. Establishment repubs don't like Ron because they want to continue with the status quo that we have been getting from barry, and will continue to get with romney. Time for real change.
Paul seems to have the delegates here in Idaho even though Romney won the Caucus. I think since Santorum and Gingrich dropped out, their delegates are moving to Paul. The Paul campaign is amassing a lot of delegates. Thus things may change at the convention.
I'm a Gingrich supporter. Ron Paul is my second choice and I hope that he comes up with the delegates he needs. He does know government and the bad things they've done. He's always been on the side of the Constitution.
We'll see what shakes out in Tampa.
Obama isn't a debater.....he's a professional liar. If it wasn't for the bullies around him....he wouldn't be in our face so much. He wouldn't be able to talk in front of the people about any of our issues. W/o a teleprompter and people writing hisd speeches...he would be lost. He's going to have to debate eventually. He's going to flop all over the place.
While I agree with you romney is no iron clad lock on debating either.
The dems and the establishment repubs are playing on the same team. They work for the same people, and that ain't us. This whole debate over who's better, the neo-CON republican or the liberal democrat is a smoke screen. It's not the democrats who are laughing behind our backs, it's the banksters. The financial elites that control the bought and paid for government. romney and barry are both tools in this selection and create a divisive atmosphere to keep people at each others throats and fight for banker choice #1 or banker choice #2. It's an illusion. And then everyone who fights over the selected candidates denounce, on a regular basis, the one Constitutionalist and the people that support him. If you vote for romney or barry, you deserve what you get. Time to wake up, people, this isn't a game anymore.
We're not stopping. See you in Tampa.
Wrong, Lock! The old fart is still running "money bombs"! Just ran one ending yesterday.
Those who worship at the Alter of Paul seem to have more money than sense.....
So our resolution is what?
Obviously the establishment RINO Republicans think they can make things turn out better this time whilst doing things exactly the same as last time. Say....Isn't that the definition of INSANITY???
Yes Karen it is!
As we saw in the last election, the left will do anything they can to silence us like call us racists, extremists, try to bully and intimidate us, etc. They don’t want the truth to be known. I don’t think anyone who stands on their principals would hold back truths when the consequences are so high. Mitt better give that some serious consideration if he wants to rally people to support him. We need a strong leader who will tell the truth.
Ovomit is a narcissist. He can’t handle criticism so let the truth be told. Get him on the ropes and keep swinging until he goes down.
