The Washington Times is usually pretty good, but they really blew this one. They claim that Romney is now getting Tea Party support. The writer for the Times either didn’t know better or engaged in some creative writing. Among other things, he claims that Freedomworks has dropped its opposition to Romney, something that Freedomworks denies.
The Times in its blatant desire to see Romney as the nominee claims that Freedomworks launched the Tea Party movement. Ignoring the fact that is not true, I don’t think even Freedomworks makes that claim. They did help organize a big DC rally in 2009, which was one of the most impressive rallies held, but the movement launched months before they became involved.
The desperation of the Romney crowd to get him anointed as the nominee is becoming disgusting and desperate. It reminds me of the bum’s rush a used car salesman gives a customer so they will buy before they realize how bad a deal they are getting.
And we are already starting to see this.
On CNN this morning, Romney’s communications director, one Eric Fehnstrom announced that once the primary was over, Romney would be “resetting.”
HOST: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election.
FEHRNSTROM: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.
Restart it all over again?
In plain, non-RINO English that means as soon as the primary is over, Romney is going to move far to the left. We will see the real Romney. We will see the Romney Massachusetts saw and did not like for four years. We are going to see what we will really be getting with the Massachusetts liberal.
We are not going to like it.
This is going to be 2008 all over again, except this time it will be worse. Romney has ignored the conservative base and has made it a point of trying to win without the base. He has done this because he had a huge money advantage. He has outspent opponents anywhere from 5-1 to 21-1 in the Illinois primary.
Romney advisors have already said, despite Romney’s promise, he is not going to repeal Obamacare. Now we have someone in the Romney campaign basically saying he will move to the left as soon as he is absolutely certain he has the nomination.
It is not too late to stop Romney and this is what we must do.
We must support both Gingrich and Santorum. Neither can win at this point but they can still stop Romney.
While I do not speak for the Tea Party, I think I have a pretty good understanding of this movement and I believe this movement does not support Mitt Romney.
Romney is not an anti-American Marxist like Obama but beyond that there is little difference. If elected he will govern from the left and destroy not only the Republican Party but also the conservative movement.
This is why we must act to try and stop him at the convention while we still can.
Thanks for the chuckle fortunate, I needed that!!!
you are so right I was shocked when Jeb Bush announced that he has a wonderful Non profit in Florida for education to raise scores of kids and gives scholarships away from his event evey November he was a great Governor he got Scripps to come to Florida a Huge Bio tech company that can hire over 1000 people or more they aruged where to put this huge building it is way in the wood's in back of wellington I don't know the name of the town I saw it on tv years ago before the worst Gov Charlie Christ so glad he is gone he was a rhino Now we have Rick Scott he just got a law passed to people on welfare should be tested for drugs what a great idea every state should have that program then under Reagan he had retired Judge's and payed him then young people right out of Law school and in every state this was done and he would move the lawyers around give then $36.000.00 a year and the retired Judges more and he got so many people off welfare and disability it was a fantastic program I dated a guy who did this work we broke up he was too jealous I was making lots more money but programs like this are great cut the fraud and waste from Medicade food stamps we know Obama has 80 million people on welfare and food stamps so he will get there vote for sure .
If there is a brokered convention what difference will it make? In a brokered convention won't the establishment still control the narrative and therefore even if Romney is denied the nomination (which will make Newt happy), another establishment RINO will be inserted in his place. So in the end we will send up yet another Bush to be President.
Is this really an improvement? I am simply asking the question, nothing more.
There will be no differnce no matter who the nominee is BHO will win so why are we wasting our time on this topic
Where have you been? Romney is our only hope to get rid of Obama. Are you people at Tea Party Nation that blind to what Romney actually offers? Are all of you still stuck in a year old "anybody but Romney" mentality? Please do yourself a favor and listen to him now.
Brokered Convention with either Newt, Sarah, or Michele(I surely hope that you know which one!) in any combination!
Quite frankly, I see omitt selling off our great nation as he did in his business after aquiring it.
