At least one blogger likes to call Mitt Romney, Mitt for brains.
Romney wants to claim that Newt Gingrich is not conservative. Of course, compared to him, it is possible to claim that Karl Marx is conservative.
If Mitt for brains wants to come out and say Newt is not a conservative, who do you think he might opt to talk to? Perhaps the conservative new media? Not if you are Mitt for brains.
From the Daily Caller:
As you probably heard, some Mitt Romney surrogates hosted a conference call today to attack Newt Gingrich. Because Romney is attempting to win a Republican primary — and cast Newt Gingrich as unacceptable to conservatives — you probably assume that center-right journalists or conservative bloggers got to ask some questions, right?
Wrong. Here’s the list of reporters and media outlets who were permitted to ask questions:
JOHN DICKERSON, CBS NEWS MARK HALPERIN, TIME LLOYD GROVE, THE DAILY BEAST EVAN MCMORRIS-SANTORO, TPM DAVID CORN, MOTHER JONES PHIL RUCKER, WASHINGTON POST
That’s it. No Townhall.com, HotAir, Daily Caller, Washington Examiner, National Review, Weekly Standard, American Spectator, or Washington Times … you get the picture.
Compare this to Newt Gingrich who asked Richard Viguerie set up a meeting with conservative leaders this week in Washington.
Mitt’s history of liberalism goes a long way back. The Contract with America is generally regarded as one of the best conservative efforts of the 20th century, because among other things, it helped the Republicans take back the House of Representatives from the Democrats in 1994 for the first time in 38 years.
“In my view, it is not a good idea to go into a Contract like what was organized by the Republican party in Washington, laying out a whole series of things which the parties said, these are the things we’re going to do. I think that’s a mistake. I think instead, that if you want to get something done in Washington, you don’t end up picking teams with Republicans on one side and Democrats on the other, entering into a Contract and saying, ‘Ok we’re all going to do this,’ and then of course if that works, then the other side feels like they’re the loser but if it wins, they feel like the winner. I don’t like winners and losers in Washington. I’d rather say let’s get together and work together.”
Mitt Romney keeps trying to sell us on the idea he is not a liberal.
I wonder, can I sue him for false advertising?
I feel that Mitt Romney is more conservative than Newt. Newt is my LEAST favorite of all BUT I will vote for him if he is the nomination. Just my opinion. I really like Santorum but he is not rising in the polls yet. He and Bachman are true conservatives. I am tired tonight or I would say more. All of this is overwhelming. I only know that Barack Obama has to be defeated. I will break down and cry if he wins re-election. I pray daily that he is fired in 2012.
My sentiments exactly Victoria.
Mitt is NOT a Liberal....strong moral and family values, firm STAND (not flip-flop like Newt) on immigration, vetoed Mass. Healthcare earmarks, and damned angry that Obama appeases our enemies while throwing Isreal under the bus. This past week, it was Mitt and his attack directly Obama that cancelled that vacation to Hawaii. Where's Newt stand on vacation??? NOwhere. He too would not cancel his vacation to Greece in June, & lost his support staff because of it. Why?? He too will vacay no matter the state of affairs. Guess whats new? Newt is on vacation for 2 weeks 'cause he tired of campaigning and full of himself " I AM the Nominee" ugggg
Newt - a Washingtonian political INSIDER.
and yet....anything/ anyone but Obama
I love this. Each is claiming that the other is not conservative. They are both right. They are both big government progressives.
IT KEEPS BOTHERING ME THAT I DON'T GET MITT ROMNEY. I SAY TO MY HUSBAND ALL THE TIME "WHAT IS IT ABOUT THAT GUY?" I CAN'T PUT MY FINGER ON IT, BUT SOMETHING IN MY GUT TELLS ME SOMETHIN' AIN'T RIGHT THERE. HE WANTS THE JOB SO BADLY, LIKE HE NEEDS IT ON HIS RESUME OR SOMETHING. I HAD THE SAME FEELING ABOUT BHO, BUT AT LEAST I KNEW FROM WHERE IT CAME, IT WAS THE REVEREND WRIGHT ISSUE. I HAD GONE TO A FEW CHURCHES IN MY LIFE THAT I GOT UP AND WALKED OUT BECAUSE OF THE HATRED THEY SPEWED. HE WENT THERE 20 YEARS, ALONG WITH OPRAH I MIGHT ADD, I KNEW THEN. EITHER WE REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS MAN HAS ON HIS MIND OR WE WILL HAVE THE SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN. AND ONCE AGAIN WE WILL BE WANTING TO THROW THE BUM OUT.
Don't focus so much on the presidential election. It seldom changes the changes we need (like dumping the fed, EPA DOE, etc.) Concentrate on electing more conservatives to congress. That way, regardless of who gets in maybe, just maybe we have a chance to make the changes that will improve our country.
I have the same feelings about Mitt. I think it’s Romney care. To close to Obama care, in fact Obama said he designed Obama care around Romney care. If Mitt gets in we may never get rid of Obama care.
If you want to know where a man stands on the issues look at his enemies. Newt Gingrich paid down our national debt by two trillion dollars and the democratic response was to have a Nancy Pelosi and her ethics committee investigate Newt on 80 charges of ethics violations. Imagine that, the person that told that house of representatives to pass the obama care bill without reading it first, how ethical is that? Maybe we should investigate the ethics of the ethics committee. One of them stuck and Newt paid $300,000 in fines. Nancy Pelosi recently let the cat of the bag when she announced that they had plenty ethics violations on Newt Gingrich. The fact of the matter is the democratic party and a left hate Newt Gingrich with a passion, which means he is a conservative who has done good things for America, like separating the tax and spend party from our tax dollars.
My friend, there is a vast amount of facts available that prove Newt is just another NWO politician. We have to get OUT of that rut if we are going to turn America around and clean up this mess.
For the Perry lovers:
Supporters of Texas Governor Rick Perry are not going to like this article at all. Right now, Republicans all over the United States are touting Rick Perry as the "Republican messiah" that is going to come charging in to save America from the presidency of Barack Obama. Many believe that if Rick Perry enters the race, he will instantly become the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. Perry certainly looks the part and he knows how to give a good speech, but when ordinary Americans all over the country take a hard look at his record, they may not like what they see. The truth is that Rick Perry is a big-time globalist, he has raised taxes and fees in Texas numerous times, he has massively increased the size of government spending and government debt in Texas, he has been trying to ram the Trans-Texas Corridor down the throats of the Texas people and he tried to force young women all over Texas to be injected with the Gardasil vaccine. No, Rick Perry is not going to save America. In fact, he would likely be very, very similar to both Bush and Obama in a lot of ways.
