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 for one am undecided regarding which Republican candidate I will support but I know one thing for certain...it will NOT be Mitt Romney!!!! I do know that the tea party members must decide which candidate we will support and get behind them whole heartedly rather than split our votes but I'm not certain that will be possible - at least until the final countdown.
Sadly, he does have Tea Party support from a supposed Tea Party candidate in Gov. Nikki Haley. She sold out to the Establishment for future gain for South Carolina and/or her own career. Also, doesn't Christine O'Donnell support Romney? Another Tea Party sell out. Perhaps that is who he is referring to when he says he has Tea Party support.
Nothing hurts the soul of the Tea Party more than supposed Conservatives like John Thune, Chris Christi, and Nikki Haley jump ship to join the RINO Establishment. Who will be next? Allen West? Not on your life!
From my lowly Tea Party vantage point, I see ZERO local Tea Party activity these days. No correspondence, no excitement, no engagement among the once animated membership. With a 47% disapproval rating in a recent national poll, could it be that Tea Partyers are seeking solace under their beds? Timing for such a retreat couldn't be worse. Let's hope there is a reawakening soon, but it may require MUCH MORE than hope. It will require prodding on our part.
Have been watching, listening, reading and I remain very concerned that political catastrophe awaits us come November. If that happens, ALL options will need to be on the table.
Romney has a runaway imagination, especially liberal ones.
Yes, and I will continue to push for Gingrich. He is far the better choice than Romney (the liar). I hope the fight is on. I think that Bachmann's and Perry's support will transfer to Newt. You don't give up. Anything can happen, as we have seen.
I love it last night during Santorum's speech when a member of the audience yelled "Romney-care". Yup. Mitt's a schmuck liberal
I do not want him as a republican conservative but I will vote for him to get Obama out and keep him out. If possible , he needs to answer for what he has done to this nation. Conviction if found guilty by a decent court if one can be found.
Realistically, if Romney should be the GOP Nominee for President and Tea Party members take a pass on the Presidential election, then Obama gets re-elected.
We'd be cutting our noses to spite our faces. While I'm not a fan of Romney's, I'd rather see him as President than Obama.
Our country cannot withstand Obama completing his agenda in his second term. And even with a GOP majority in the House and Senate(with veto override), Obama would just bypass Congress as he has done over and over again.
I think our priority is that we have to make a good effort to win the Presidency and the majority in both Houses.
Obama must be stopped first, then I will work my darnedest to make Romney a one term President.
Even if it takes one step at a time.
I believe that Mitt Romney is a big spender just like Obama. If he wins he will try to spend America to death.
Gail, I am with you all the way. I think we have just gotten started. We shouldn't even be discussing "if romney wins."
