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.
Romney is only liked by "The Old Mossy Backs on Capitol Hill" !
Take care of their money.
The only thing I disagree with is that he will destroy the conservative movement. He will destroy the republican party as the conservatives leave and start their own party. If there is anything left of America by the 2016 election a new conservative party just might take everything because only 20% of Americans admit to being true liberals. The other 80% will be so fed up with the socialist agenda Bush advanced, obama changed to marxist and Romney will certainly continue, that we can win, if we still have the right to vote...
I do not care for Romney.
The destruction of the Republican party may be a good thing.
Really, in the year we must get rid of Obama, the destruction of the Republican Party is a good thing.
I don't like Romney either, but I dislike the idea of Obama winning another 4 years more. You may want to rethink this.
"Romney's advisors have already said, despite Romneys promise, he is not going to repeal Obama Care". Could you supply a specific link to this statement other than links on this forum? Or is this a product of your vivid imagination?
Please refer me to the link so if it is true, I can eat my words and apologize.
On Jan. 24, 2012, Andrea Saul, Romney campaign "spokeswoman" said in an e-mail and I quote: "With all due respect to Senator Coleman, he's wrong". "Gov. Romney can and will repeal Obama care and is committed to doing so". Note: Coleman's statement was a prediction not a position statement.
I'd be carefull about quoting a site called "Think Progress" if I were you. LOL
Much to my chagrin, there will be no apology and no word eating, at least not by me~!!!!
Ya, Andrea Saul. She is a real winner. Look at her track record. Worked for McCain (lost). Worked for Carly Fiorina (lost), worked for Charlie the RINO Crist (lost). I hope Andrea is using these defeats as a steping stones to victory if Mitt gets the nomination. If Mitt is the one, I'm not throwing my vote away as in the past for a third party candidate, just because Mitt is my third choice and the worst out of the three.
She's just a press secretary. What are you a cat hater?
I think you are right about Romney Richard. But Santorum keeps putting his foot in his mouth. He has to get a better team organized to help him and quit speaking off the cuff. As well his level of experience is really no better than Obama's was. What is it about him that makes you think he would beat Obie?
I think he is a fine man - but don't see it. The one that Obama is afraid of is Newt. The GOP is shooting themselves in the foot this time.
That is not true I heard it from 1 of his advisors
