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.
Should Romney become President, with the death of the Republican Party will come the birth of the Conservative Party and the Conservative Parties first President, President Sarah Palin.
You would do very well to have a Conservative Party born out of this mess David. We have one here in Canada that is doing great things to get Canada out of the socialist mess we are in. The people are behind them. What my Conservative party does not do is dwell on social issues so it makes it easier for the people to support them from all kinds of thinking. For instance gay marriage is legal across Canada on the civil level only because civil agreements are contracts. All religious organizations were left to make their own decisions about this issue and it works well.
America is ready for a Conservative party and I hope the Tea Party starts to help with the birth of it. Palin would be a great leader indeed.
The Times had always lied...
I still want NEWT..
Do you still want Mitt Romney? A fish out of water does what? Read below!!
Freedom Works doesn't like Romney.
Newt needs donations. www.newt.org
I don't know what tea party TPN is talking about. Tea Party Nation is losing credibility for missing this opportunity to back Romney. I don't think TPN knows what it is doing. They seem to be stuck in some ignorant feedback loop. If it does not get more educated with today's reality, it will only increase the chance of another four years of a serious disaster that we may never recover from.
Rick Santroum suppoted Planned Parenthood what is wrong with you people we need to get behind one candidate not one is perfect they all have flaws, Newt , Santrorum and Romney
Carole, If Rick or Mitt win, we better hope for a super-conservative for VP.
We watched "Undefeated" yesterday. Good video. I've been a Sarah Palin fan for several years when I was working in the Alaska Oil Fields. She did good as Mayor and Governor. The liberals with all their false ethics violations caused her to resign as Governor. Was a sad day when she resigned.
We'll end up voting for the winner of the primarys whether we like it or not. I'm in Idaho so I have conservative members in Congress.
Have a good day and God Bless
