Mitt Romney or as we like to call him, Mitt the Cowardly liberal, is still lying to the American people and the Republicans in particular.
Yes, there are a lot of lies, but there is one in particular that is worth mentioning.
Which one is it?
Mitt the cowardly liberal claims he has Tea Party support and has support from prominent Tea Party leaders.
This started when I appeared MSNBC on Monday, on Martin Bashir’s show. I stated Tea Partiers would not support Mitt Romney. Romney claimed on the Laura Ingraham show that he had the support of prominent Tea Party leaders.
The answer is, he does not have the support of any significant Tea Party group or leader.
Mitt Romney is a liberal. Mitt Romney is simply John McCain 2.0. Mitt Romney, if elected will advance a liberal agenda.
Mitt Romney has ignored the Tea Party. His theory is simple. He does not need us. He will give the Tea Party lip service, just because any good politician does not go out of his way to antagonize a voting block.
For liberals, Romney is the candidate they most want to face. The Tea Party movement at best will be lukewarm behind him and at worst many of us will simply pass on the Presidential race to concentrate on Senate and House races. In previous polls, between one third and one half of Tea Party members surveyed said they would not vote for Romney in the general election.
Mitt Romney, like many politicians, simply says things and expects us to accept those statements as gospel, even if they fly in the face of the facts.
The fact is Mitt Romney has no major Tea Party support. No significant Tea Party figure has endorsed the liberal former Massachusetts governor.
The reason is the Tea Party does not support liberals.
Another statement Mitt Romney floats out that he expects us to blindly accept is that he is a conservative. That is one of the most laughable statements in history. If false statements could get you disqualified from running, Mitt would immediately be voted off the island for that whopper.
The truth of the matter is that Mitt Romney was a very liberal Massachusetts governor. He claims some of his liberal decisions were necessary because he had to run in a very liberal state. What Romney does not say, most of his most liberal decisions were made after he announced he was not running for reelection. He signed Romneycare after he was a lame duck. He enacted cap and trade when he was a lame duck. He could have just said I’m not enacting any of these laws and not had to worry about it because he was not going to run for reelection.
Instead, he pushed Massachusetts even further to the left.
Now, in New Hampshire, another liberal Republican, John McCain is going to endorse Mitt Romney. McCain pretty much tanked the GOP four years ago. Why does anyone care what McCain thinks? In fact, McCain’s endorsement is just another good reason not to vote for Mitt Romney, the liberal from Massachusetts.
So who endorses Mitt Romney? Liberals? Where are the Tea Party supporters he claims support him? Like his claims of a conservative record, they are a figment of his imagination.
I will vote for anyone except Obama. Problem is there will be little, if any, enthusiasm among the rank and file Republican voters. For that reason alone, am still thinking Obama has a better than even chance to prevail in November. The tumult which will surely follow if that horror occurs will be a VERY serious matter. Secession anyone?
How on Earth can any conservative say he wouldn't vote for an Odumbo opponent, no matter who it is? I'd vote for Jimmy Carter, as distasteful as that would be, because he'd be an improvement over the Imposter-Campaigner-Socialist-In-Chief! If I were to vote third party or write-in someone and Odumbo were to win, I'd have to blow my brains out from guilt!
I agree...Obama really is *that bad* and we really don't have the luxury of playing games with our votes. I would hold my nose while voting for Romney, but that's where my vote has to go. As catastrophic as Obama is and has been, a Romney win would at least buy us time til 2016. Hoping like heck that there is no third party run, too.
And Romney would be so catastrophic that 2016 would be a complete Democratic landslide and the R's would be wiped out and take us down with them.
I subscribe to the Tea Party principles, but if our only choice is Romney and Ono, I'll support Romney.
Spot on assessment, Tom. I honestly fear that our Republic cannot peaceably survive 4 more years of BHO.
Slight correction: "We have to retain the House and take the Senate" no matter who is elected President.
Then find a new speaker for both the house and the senate. Bone Head and McCaven have to go.
Tom: Romney isn't my first choice but if he is the one left at the end I will hold my nose and vote for him just like I did with McCain last time. Number 1: We must keep the House and TAKE the Senate to keep him in check as his liberal side will be fine with the Dems. I read an interesting article in the WSJ today where they stated Romney would be in favor of a VAT. This is really scary and would move us quickly into a socialists state.
first OWS tries to claim that they are like us and now Romney lies about having our Support? What is it with these liberals? They claim they hate us and YET at the same time they want to be us and claim that they have our support. Just because we are the STRONGEST Grass Roots out there doesn't give them the right to lay claim to us! ARRRRGGHHH that's SO annoying!
Of course they want to lay claim to us Katie, they see we are successful, they know they are failures. They think if they can figure out how to look like us they will be perceived as successful and then they can accomplish their goals Progressively by stealth. Of course the success they want is to make the US a Banana Republic with them, the Liberals as the privilaged elite plantation owners.
Is Mitt Romney a Natural Born citizen - I believe his Father was a citizen of Mexico when Mitt was born in Mexico?
