If anyone is interested, I just found out last night that George Romney, Mitt's father, apparently was an admirer and good friend of Saul Alinsky....you know, the good little radical communist and author of "Rules for Radicals". According to what I found in a Google Search of these men, George Romney implored his son Mitt to learn more about Alinsky and follow his teachings. From Mitt Romney's demeanor at the last couple debates, his interrupting at every turn, and his playing fast and loose with the facts and truth, it seems as though Mitt Romney was a very good Alinsky student!!!
Interesting how in the face of the truth you still choose to spew lies. The truth is right there in the CNN clip. Are you trying to say that since CNN is an MSM socialist Obama news agency now that this is not true?
Newt and lots of others have told the truth. All of these scurolous false charges were making him go bankrupt in legal fees. The Democrats tried to have him sanctioned and kept throwing false allegations at him over and over and over again which he had to defend. He got legal and personal advice that it would be better to just pay the fine and walk away to save his finincial solvency.
That is the truth, no matter how you the MSM, the left, and the RINOS try to spin it.
Thank you RS for posting this. Shouldn't Romney have known better? His recent attacks are going to backfire bigtime.
Newt is and always has been an economic and political conservative through and through, come hell or high water. Evidently, repentance and conversion to faith in Christ have made him a social conservative as well.
From the outset, Newt fought for conservative principles early, well, long, whatever the cost to his own political career. He rebelled against their plans and control, and they saw him as too 'unreliable' not a loyal party man and it cost him dearly.
See Jeffrey Lord's article at the Spectator: Reagan's Young Lieutenant - http://spectator.org/archives/2012/01/24/reagans-young-lieutenant.
Newt's thorough conservative principles still do not now sit well with the powers that be in politics, finance or in some parts of the church for that matter.
Just when thought they had shut him down/out for good, here he is, in their faces, once again. Worse, no matter what they do, his popularity and polls keep rising.
As he said last Sunday after the win in South Carolina, 'They are afraid of him and they should be.'
He terrifes the political establishment, but that is just another reason he comforts and encourages and delights real conservatives.
Mitch is my Governor & he is Conservative - he's very methodical and has truly lived up to every campaign promise he made. I really don't worry about his Conservatism on a National stage. However, the dude's a dud on TV. I am worried about his response tonight not because of substance, but lack of style. He's a policy guy & is right on the issues but he lacks pizazz. I know it's not a circus, but in a time such as this, we need a strong, loud voice - a person who demonstrates vivid bold colors, not pale pastel. Unfortunately Mitch is a little pastel. I think he'd be great in a Cabinet position. DC would be lucky to have him.
Who was it that said, "If you're 20 & Republican, you don't have a heart but if you're 40 & Democrat, you don't have a brain."? Obviously the brainlessness would cross the age spectrum... (not my quote - just one I remember hearing)
Someone commented @ HotAir that Newt was Palinized by the political establishment long before Palin was.
Nukeman, Here's something you might look into for the Right Scoop crowd if you have time:
Mitt Romney and Bain: Massive Medicare and Medicaid Fraud – largest criminal fine in history
Is there anything to it?
Why would you pay for the investigation if you absolutely believe you did nothing wrong? I know I wouldn't.
I lost it at "searching for Nemo by now"! ROFLMAO!!! Oh man, you have such a way with words! I SOOOOO look forward to your posts! Thanks for that!
