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 am excited about Rick Santorum. I sincerely hope that he is the real deal. Newt and Romney are the same in my book, both saying whatever they think we want to hear. Typical politicians...Ron Paul is right on target on so many areas and then out on left field on others. He is scary to say the least. Regardless I will vote for anyone but osama.
Could Santorum have problems? http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/santorum-surge-brings-ethics-question...
Yeah, he is an anti-gun candidate.
False, Edward Moses. His 100% pro-gun voting record and NRA endorsements (A+ rating) are posted in the Santorum group here on TPN. You are lying and you know it. Stop it.
American Infidel:I am not from Missouri, but if you have the statment that he is supported by the NRA show me the statement. I am not that tight minded. If I am wrong, I will admit it.. I am not a liar.
Edward, Here is an excerpt from the NRA in Wikipedia:
"The NRA's policy is that it will endorse any incumbent who supports its positions, even if the challenger supports them as well, as incumbents tend to hold more political power. For example, in the 2006 Senate Elections the NRA endorsed Rick Santorum over Bob Casey, Jr. even though they both had an "A" rating from the NRA Political Victory Fund, because of Santorum's history of support for the NRA's interests in Congress."
Santorum has an "A" rating with the NRA. In fact, he was out hunting in Iowa last week.
Janet: Thanks for the comeuppance. I guess I was wrong.
It's time for the Tea Party to get off the fence, get behind a conservative candidate and stop whining! If you want a conservative Republican candidate for president get off your rusty dusty and get behind one. Rick Santorum came from nowhere, with little funding, to obtain a virtual tie in Iowa, primarily because the GOP candidates spent a fortune trashing Newt Gingrich for the last month instead of running against the real enemy, Barack Husein Obama!
Stop with the Tea Party will not vote for Mitt Romney nonsense. We may not want to vote for Romney, but we may not have a choice if the Tea Party and other conservative Republicans don't uinite behind one conservative candidate for the nomination. Michele Bachmann has been a Tea Party favorite, but she has not been able to generate enough national support to be competitive. Ask Michele to step aside and stop diluting the conservative vote. That's exactly what happened in 2008 when the Republican establishment put in enough candidates to dilute the conservative vote.
There are three possiblilities left, Santorum, Gingrich and Perry. The Tea Party needs to select one that can win the Republican nomination and pull out the stops. None of these candidates are perfect, but they are far more conservative than Romney and they are electable. The Tea Party needs to step up and provide that choice with the volunteers, organization and monetary support they need to win.
What are you waiting for? Rally the troops and let's ride to the sound of the guns!
Thank you Robert.
AMEN !!!!!!!! After this week, whoever of the three mentioned above has the most votes, we should get behind him and give him 100 percent support.
"Moderation in all things" - Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC)
For once the Greek's got it right. Conservative Republicans and the Tea Party love to stand on the strictest interpretations of our Constitution while liberal Democrates love to ingnore it altogether. The path to success lays somewhere in the middle. If the Republicans try to govern from the right in the same manner that the 'Progressives' have governed from the left we will all lose.
If Romney is the only choice that is the way we will have to go. It will be like 4 more years of Obama but hopefully not as bad.
