What is it about RINOs? Do they really have a political death wish? Are they simply stupid? Is it all of the above?
What has happened now that will make your head want to explode?
Eric Fehrnstrom, Mitt Romney’s senior advisor has opened his mouth again. He has announced on Romney’s favorite channel, MSNBC that Romney agrees with Obama. The Obamacare tax is not a tax.
How incredibly stupid can they be?
Fehrnstrom is the same guy who a few months ago made headlines when he announced that Romney would be like an etch a sketch and wipe the screen clear after the primary and start over.
He is certainly doing that now.
Romney raised over $6 million after the Obamacare tax decision. While John Roberts acted as a coward by not simply striking down the Obamacare tax, he did try to give conservatives a gift when he called it a tax.
Who the hell cares what Romney or his flack think? The Supreme Court has spoken on this one and the Obamacare tax is legally a tax.
So what does he want to do? Just blow the whole campaign.
Americans are angry. We did not like Obamacare to start with and now that the Supreme Court has called it a tax, it gave Romney the room to run straight for a touchdown.
What kind of idiots are running the Romney campaign? Instead of spiking the football and winning, the Romney campaign has just turned over the ball.
Hey Mitt for brains, why don’t you go out now and announce the economy is recovering and the private sector is doing just fine?
This is one of the most amazing occurrences of political brain death we have seen in the last fifty years. All the Romney camp had to do was not say anything. They could run on this. Americans hate taxes. This tax falls hardest on the middle class.
In 2008, John McCain would not go after Barack Obama. His timidity made turned a bad candidate into a complete disaster. Compared to Mitt Romney, John McCain looks like Sun Tzu.
Unfortunately for conservatives, Romney sides with Obama. If he can manage to get elected, is he now simply going to take Obamacare, rename it Romneycare, make a few cosmetic changes and force it on the American people.
Such stupidity is mind blowing.
The question for Republicans is, is it too late to change the nominee. Can we have a brokered convention now? Where is Herman Cain or Newt Gingrich now, when we really need them?
Well Judson, you saw what Rupert Murdoch tweeted right? "Met Romney last week. Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful."
So you should not be surprised at this latest goof. Lets hope he puts Rubio on the ticket for someone who can tell the media what we really believe in.
Please remember that Rubio IS NOT eligible to sit in the office of President---- he is NOT a natural born citizen.
When he was born, his parents were permitted aliens who later became citizens. Sorry Rubio, but your son or daughter should be eligible.
If you have no 'core' values then it's conceivable you would make a statement such as Fehrstrom's. Doesn't really matter at this point as SCOTUS has dictated and re-written bad law that it IS A TAX. As tax legislation must begin in the house, and this was not passed as a 'tax' but a 'penalty', then the law needs to be brought back for reconciliation as a 'tax'. That; however, will take a republican majority in the senate and a republican president. Even then it's not assured. That being said IMHO the approach should focus on the lies told by dems to get this monstrosity passed, the increased taxes on individuals and businesses it will cause, the out year detrimental impact on care especially for seniors as doctors bail out, as well as the fact that no 1% of the rich will pay taxes has ever limited the creep of the scope of a tax. What is absolutely critical is repubs must have a viable, comprehensive, focused in scope and easy to understand counter plan. Something on a 5-7 card with bullet points. Details to follow message. And then, as much as pledges are worth, repubs in senate and house agree that is their plan.
what kills me is i look at anything that makes me have to pay money to the government is a tax. i don't care what they call it a fee, penalty, etc it is just like the saying walks,talks, and acts like a duck it's a duck. these silly games have to stop.
Can money be found elsewhere to finance this WITHOUT HEAVY TAXES, OR WITHOUT FORCED PENALTY? Perhaps by investing in a new oil drill and etc . Something that can bring in steady, huge revenues for this med-care purpose only? READ MY LIPS, NO MORE TAXES.
SPREAD THE WORD TO ALL OF YOUR CONTACTS ABOUT THIS MASSIVE NEW TAX BURDEN:
joengima, Good luck with that analogy sticking.
How much more stupid do people need till they realize that we need NEWT??!! I mean come on, do you all know what Newt would have done? By now he would even have the liberals taking his side....WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE?? WOW..Just amazing. I fI was Mitt this dud would have been gone a LONG time ago! Bachman and Newt would be the only ones that would make this into something amazing....opps and Palin sorry about that lol. Newt/West 2012, that would have done us just fine and we would not be in such a bad place.
Love your loyalty Katie!
Love your SMARTS, Katie!
While Newt is a very smart individual, and would sweep Obama away in a debate, it is way past "too late" for him to be the nominee this year. (The same goes for Dr. Ron Paul.) And further, you don't select a running mate from the same geographical area of the country. However, that's one reason why a Romney/West-2012 ticket would seem to work well...an unequivocal conservative to keep the newly-Republican Senate "in line." (Allen West has been my first choice for VP for quite some time now; so I hope Romney selects him.)
Right On, NEWT is the man we should have had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
