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.
Sorry if this is off the subject, but it needs to said from time to time:
Let's all get in the habit of sending in at least one membership invitation a day. It doesn't have to be to a friend. It doesn't even have to be to someone you know! I've used an email harvesting application to gather email addresses from hundreds of sites. I've probably invited several thousand by now to join TPN.
Come on! It's easy!
The majority of Tea Party followers have still not made up their minds from all reports Judson. Apparently one of the Palin supporters (broke my heart she is not running) phoned that radio fellow in Florida and asked him to ask her to please tell them soon who to vote for. WHAT? Not what Palin was about at all. She would be wanting everyone to do their own homework and figure it out for themselves.
Hope she does not step up until the rep has been decided and then throws her support behind whoever that is. Gingrich is holding and actually starting to come up. Myself I would like to see a Cain/Gingrich or visa versa ticket because I think they would smoke Obie.
