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.
Lizzie, the idea is for both Santorum and Gingrich to bleed enough votes away from Romney that he can't get to the magic 1144. If that happens, BINGO! - brokered convention. It's a long shot but better than letting Romney just walk away with the nomination.
Lizzie I agree. I am it seems that we see their rants on what needs to be done, but no action? It is time for commericals to pop up with information for the average American. One being Romney is not going to reapeal Obamacare, another needs to be Newts 2.50 gal of gas and can it be done? Who's willing and who's not willing to fight for us? Those commericals need to be going on now!
Beware of throwing rocks when you live in a glass house. You obviously have not seen Rick Santorum's voting record. Only a thick headed stupid person would vote for Rick Santorum. He's a big government liberal. However, I still endorse him for "Sanitation Commissioner" but I have to withdraw my previous endorsement for "Dog Catcher". I wouldn't do that to a dog~!!!
If you'd take the time to scrutinize his voting record you wouldn't consider him honest. He's a blatent liberal liar that will vote against Christian principles if he deems it convienient. I tried to copy his record here but the "puppet masters" won't allow it, claiming that it is more than 4000 characters but it is not. My "Office" word counter says its way below that number. So your going to have to do your own homework for a change since this site has a problem with the facts~!!!
We name call each other here? I've had that too Ron. Guess I don't care anymore. I don't believe your stupid to vote for Rick Santorium. Evey vote shows Romney he hasn't proved himself to many people.
Conservatives need to Unite under one goal. That goal must be TO DEFEAT BARACK OBAMA!
All else is irrelevant!
Romney is our best chance to do it. Santorum has and would vote for anything if he thought it was politically expedient. Check his voting record for yourself. He talks a great "workers, I feel your pain" routine; his voting record does not back it up.
Anyone but obama.Transparency right?
