We are constantly being given the bum’s rush on Mitt Romney. The media tells us he is the “inevitable” Republican nominee. We are also told he is the most “electable” Republican against Obama.
Is that true? Find out below.
A message from a Tea Party Nation sponsor:
Thanks, Ronald Reagan!
Today's Washington might be out to ruin your retirement.
But lucky for us, Reagan's White House might have just saved you.
How? With a little-known “loophole” Ronnie signed into law nearly 25 years ago.
Almost no Americans know about the special "10-86 plans" he created... but those that do get to collect as much as three times the income most stocks or bonds pay.
Even though this "trick" has nothing to do with the stock market.
No it is not. Mitt has a huge Tea Party problem.
The Tea Party is not going to support him and without Tea Party support, he has no chance.
In 2010, the GOP came back from the political endangered species list thanks to the Tea Party. In 2008, the GOP had their heads handed to them and Democrats gloated that the GOP had been reduced to a permanent minority in American politics.
But for the Tea Party, they would have been right.
Now, the same people that gave us John McCain in 2008 want to give us Mitt Romney in 2012. The problem is, he is not electable.
Recent polls on Tea Party Nation show the problem that Mitt Romney has.
In August, Tea Party Nation featured a poll that asked the simple question. “If Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee, will you vote for him?” 45% said no.
This week, we just finished another poll. The question was asked, “If Mitt Romney is the Republican nominee, what will you do in the General Election?”
12% said they would enthusiastically vote for Romney.
52% said they would hold their noses and vote for Romney.
23% said they would vote for a third party candidate.
12% said they would not vote for President.
Over one third of Tea Party activists in this latest poll would not pull the lever for Romney. This is huge. Without the conservative GOP base behind him, no candidate has a chance against Obama. This is true of Mitt Romney.
John McCain lost 2008 because the base that had come out for George W. Bush in 2004 stayed home. The media is pushing Mitt Romney for a couple of reasons. First, he is the candidate that Barack Obama can do the best against. Why? Because the GOP/Conservative base will not be energized with Mitt Romney as the candidate. Second, for them, the worst-case scenario is that a Republican gets elected.
If Romney is the Republican who gets elected in 2012, then they can breath a sigh of relief. He will be Obama-lite. He will be almost like a second Obama term. Obamacare will not be repealed. Romney will simply work to manage big government and we will see no changes.
When the media starts talking about Romney’s electability, we need to remember what the agenda is. And their agenda is not to have a conservative in the White House in 2013.
I have emailed, phoned, or talked to in person, every republican that I can find that if romney gets the nomination, we would either use the good old write in box, or, for the first time in my life, I will not vote!!!
This establishment thing of the "next in line" will end with the 2012 election. Much to the chagrin of the media, who believe that they will, again, be choosing OUR nominee, they will have NO say in our choice this time. Nobody is listening to them anymore, anyway.
I have nothing against Romney personally...I just believe that he is a RINO of the 1st degree, and, we have all seen where these folks will take us. He is not electable, WE are looking for a true Constitutional candidate, and, to date....this person has yet to show up. A very sad statement for the republican who are always offering us the "lesser of 2 evils".
I totally agree, Lynda------we need a true conservative--we need someone who knows how to get things done in Washington, we need someone who can defeat Obama in debates, someone who believes in and honors our Constitution and who believes we are a nation founded on Christian principles--someone who does not waste time bickering during debates but offers solutions to critical and pressing problems --we need Newt Gingrich.
I don't want to hold my nose and vote as I did in the 2008 election. Give us a candidate who can save our Republic, our monetary system, our sovereignty and our culture.Newt's the man !!!!!!
Hell yes! Can you imagine him in the debates with the "Teleprompter-in-Chief"?
He would eat Obama alive.....if Obama ever had the nerve to show up for any of
the debates, which I have my doubts.
I have been reading your blog for a while now. I almost always agree with you but this time I strongly disagree. Mitt Romney is not my favorite candidate far from it. But when you encourage people not to vote you are doing the country a disservice. Why don't you just tell people to vote for Obama if a real conservitive doesn't get the nomination? Do you realize the damage another Obama term will do? Do you think Romney will make the same supreme court appointments Obama will make? Do you think we will be better off economically with another Obama term? What are you thinking???
I concur with you! What are those so enthusiastic about EVICTING OB thinking about?
Your pragmatism reeks of loyalty to the Karl Rove RINO coalition.
Romney will damn the Country just as surely as Obama will!
We will always get the government we deserve! Mitt Romney will not be representative of conservative values. If he is elected, there will be no change in our predicament. I am not convinced that a man that once signed legislation into law that created a state-wide healthcare system, will have any notion of signing legislation that abolishes it at the national level.
Convince me otherwise!
A feel that a vote for Romney is the same thing as a vote for an Obama-by-another-mother!
I totally agree. I am not a Romney fan, but when I see all of these people stating, "I will not vote if Romney is the nominee", or "I'll write in someone else."
Unfortunately, "writing a candidate in" or "not voting" - guarantees Obama a win. Romney may be Obama-lite, but at least he is 'lite' and is more conservative then a liberal. If Obama gets in our country will be communist within the next couple of years.
