Bret Baier said tonight that Romney told him after their interview yesterday that he didn’t like the interview, that it was “overly aggressive” and said it was “uncalled for”.

Talk about thin skinned:

As I’ve said before, anybody but Romney, Paul, and Huntsman.

    “… anybody but…”

    This Bret Bair video post is about Romney, but the “… anybody but Romney, Paul and Huntsman” list may eventually include Gingrich… if Ron Paul’s anti-Gingrich video is not answered by Gingrich.

      No way would I vote for Ron Paul, but that is a pretty good ad. Sums up some of the major problems with Newt.

        Yep.

        PS. The only reason I added the Race42010 link is that various contributors promote their candidates in a civil and coherent manner.

        It’s in the comments that things tend to get, uh, interesting.

        And, with a pro-Paul video, there are a whole lotta pro-Paul comments in one place.

      Gingrich is really a worry for me, and that ad really points out why. — But ever since he started surging, I’ve been longing to see Huntsman get his time…,yeah, I’m desperate to prefer Huntsman to Newt.

      I’m still hanging in for Romney only because I still am convinced he is the only guy who can beat Obama. Newt—-Obama would mop the floor with him. All Barry would need to do is use the Ron Paul ad and edit Paul’s name out and put his own.

        Newton Gingrich at 34 seconds –

        Paul Ryan at 38 seconds –
        – “With allies like that, who needs the left?”

          I was surfing around the political sites a few days back, when I came across an article (still trying to re-find it for a link, I gotta reset my browsing history settings), it was quite interesting, but the gist of it was the observation on polling. The candidates that refrained from direct attacks on their fellow GOP candidates were consistently polling higher than their rivals that went negative on their fellow candidates. One case in point was Bachmann, her numbers tanked right after she attacked Perry over the “vaccine mandate”, it went on to show just where a candidate’s numbers started heading south in the polls, every time it was following an attack on a fellow GOP candidate, those that stayed with going after Obama consistently stayed on top.

          I have found that the attacks by the over zealous supporters of any particular candidate on the threads here, have the same effect. Just thought that was kind of interesting.

          • http://profiles.google.com/ajtelles Art Telles

            “… over zealous supporters…”

            I was thinking of something similar, KenInMontana, when I posted the above Paul anti-Gingrich video.

            I was thinking that the Paul supporters would get more positive traction if they did not attack non-Paul supporters and simply stated their case, as I did for them with the video link and a link to a comment page that favors their candidate.

            I’m still not seriously considering Paul, however, as long as he retains his “we-gotta-consider-the-Arab-point-of-view-contra-Israel” position.

            Of course, the words in quotes are not his, they are mine, simply to articulate in a friendly way a rhetorical point of disagreement.

          Newt clarified that one and other issues quite well tonight in his interview with Hannity.

            Yeah, that’s what Newt does. Convincingly and smoothly run his mouth. Like Obama. But his actual record? The absolute worst of all the candidates. Maybe Gingrich could “clarify” his being the only speaker in US history slapped with numerous ethical violations and a 300,000 fine. Or clarify his cheating on all his wives and dumping them. Please. Newt is trash. I know everyone here hates Ron Paul, but I’m gonna vote for Ron Paul for one simple reason- he’s the only small government conservative running who’s avoided tax raises, lobbyists, government heath care programs, bailouts, TARP, and expanding government. Everyone else has nothing but a big government record no matter they’re saying now.

      Gingrich answered the issues in the video before the Ron Paul negative video came out. The opposition to Ron Paul is just as strong, if not stronger, than the No Mitt campaign. I don’t especially want either one. Perry, Bachmann, and Santorum don’t really seem up to the task. Huntsman? Don’t make me laugh…

      Gingrich is about all that is left, unless Palin gets in the race.

      • http://profiles.google.com/ajtelles Art Telles

        “… unless Palin …”

        Perry seems to be fadin’, maybe not, we’ll see, so, I’m wonderin’ if Palin will endorse Bachmann or Gingrich or Santorum.

        Yes, Bachmann, and even Sen. Rick Santorum.

        Both Bachmann and Santorum would be kindred spirits of Palin’s in faith, family, freedom core values.

        It seems, however, that Palin’s endorsement of Santorum would be a “servant’s heart” affirmation of a kindred soul with faith, family, freedom core convictions AND political wisdom acquired from Representative and Senate experience.

        Who knows whom Mrs. Palin will endorse… until she does… and if she does not get in the race.

    • Anonymous

      The architect of Obamacare was technically Newt Gingrich. Newt Gingrich and the heritage foundation are the ones that created this concept in the early 90’s. Gingrich is on record in 2010 in an interview still supporting some type of National Healthcare mandate. As a matter of fact this is where Romney got the idea when the 87% controlled MA legislature insisted on universal Healthcare for the state.If Romney is a RINO then Newt is a flaming liberal.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZLMVDEBWYEPJP56FPC5JURM6SY Barbara

        It is one thing to have an idea and write it up, but quite another to go about implementing it. Gingrich thought up the notion as a response to Hillary Care in another time and place, and the proposal was offered as part of a debate. It was offered as something so repugnant that no one would ever implement it. This is very different from how Romney and then Obama proceeded. The latter two proceeded as if it were a Republican recommendation. That would be like launching rockets full of Yogurt to the Moon ten years from now because Congressman Ryan used it in a debate in 2010 as a response to budget reconciliation. You need to consider the historical context in which the idea was offered, and the motivation for offering it.

        Just as Congressman Ryan would never dream of actually sending yogurt to the moon, neither did, at that time, Gingrich think to actually pass a health insurance mandate. To actually implement it was simply absurd. Yet that is what Romney and Obama did.

        The Tea Party crowd does not like Mitt Romney at all. He is part of the permanent political class. Romney was raised in a Governor’s mansion and then went on to become a governor. His father ran against Reagan, and now he runs against Reagan’s architect. His justification for running is to redeem his father’s honor. Really? That is not a servant’s heart, that is the answer you would expect from the Lord and Master of Manor in the days of serfdom from a permanent political class.

        I would be very disappointed if Palin endorsed Romney. She would loose the remains of her base.

      All true. Romney is a spoiled punk, who grew up rich on his dad’s money, he dodged the draft for a goofy religious retreat, and he’s extremely arrogant.

      No Mittens, we don’t like you and won’t vote for you. I mean when people say en mass they’d rather stay home than vote for you and you’ve had this long to sell yourself- you suck.

      ANYBODY but Romney. Any ideas on Newt’s VP? I’m a Perry guy, but I will gladly support Newt, so perhaps he’d pick Perry. That would certainly be a hell of a lot of experience between the two of them.

      • http://www.planettron.com NickDeringer

        I still have hope that Perry will get his act together. Sherrif Joe Arpaio endorsed Perry the other day. How bad can his immigraton policy be if Sherrif Joe gives him his endorsment? Here’s another twist. I think there’s an outside chance Palin could endorse Perry since she has campaigned for him in the past and they share the “governor’s” point of view on things.

        If Newt were smart he’d grab somebody like Rubio. It would bring in some of the Hispanic vote and add much needed youth to the ticket.

        I’m afraid this will be another “hold your nose and vote” election. Whoever our guy is, he will be better than the Marxist regime we have now.

        So you call yourself a Republican and you don’t like rich successful people. Romney’s dad started with nothing and worked his way up. Romney went to an Ivy League College and graduated near the top of his class with a Law degree and an MBA. Romney used his brains in the private sector for 25 yeears restructuring companies and earned 100s of millions of dollars, unlike Gingrich who earned his millions as a career politician and parasite and Washington insider selling access to the highest bidder. Romney was paid $1/yr as governor and was not paid for his work as the Olympic CEO, who was brought in to turn around the event.

        Gingrich lacks discipline and has no moral compass and was the only speaker in 208 years to get slapped with ethics violations and the highest fine,$300,000. Gingrich craves money,power and status. All one needs to do, is to see how he treated all of his ex-wives and mistresses to see that he can not be trusted-period.

        Don’t worry. The garbage is being dumped big time. I have read some scathing rants from conservative pundits who see Newt as an ego maniac, flimflam man whose only loyalty is to Newt Gingrich. I agree. The advantage for Newt is that it’s all old news and people have moved passed it. Newt is also a fighter with a 10th degree black belt in debating so he can fend off any attacks that come his way. As long as he gives great debate performances he will beat Romney.

        Plus Newt and Rush Limbaugh are old friends so you can expect Limbaugh to support him any way he can.

          Worst thing to ever happen to GOP fiscal responsibility was chasing Gingrich out and putting a corrupt Illinois porkulus pol named Denny Haskert in his place which then lead to Nancy Pelosi taking over in Jan 2007 and a doubling of our debt in the decade Newt was absent from his Speakership.

    I wonder if the reason Romney’s handlers keep under such tight raps is that he has a temper. He came off in the interview with Brett Baier as petulant, the like kind of guy who would throw a fit if his shirt wasn’t ironed properly. I wonder why we never see his wife?

      At times you can see in his eyes that Romney is seething, he is absolutely furious. His smile is frozen, but his eyes give him away.

      Yes, I think the guy has a temper. He is used to getting his way and he doesn’t understand why he can’t just walk into the nomination. This isn’t going according to plan and it’s throwing Romney off his game. That’s why he isn’t doing interviews. He’s already lost and he knows it.

    What a spineless campfire girl. That interview would’ve been a complete softball, had it not been for HIS OWN SUPPORT FOR BAD LEGISLATION. His support for socialism in health care, even if just on a state level shows he has no fundamental understanding of the Free Market, or even FREEDOM, for that matter. The state’s own treasurer says that stupid health care plan is a nuclear disaster,

    and yet Romney WILL NOT admit it was a terrible, stupid thing to do.

    Little Lord Fauntleroy’s bad on Free Market solutions, bad on immigration, bad on law enforcement, bad on foreign policy, etc. Even if this had been a “gotcha” interview, that’s tough sh*t. That’s how some interviews will go, and if he’s not smart enough to know how to handle this, this should be telling him that he’s not smart or tough enough to handle being president. Furthermore, the guy should’ve asked him about the passage that was EDITED OUT of his book, around campaign time.

    Romney unlike Newt is not a career politician. Romney earned his 100s of millions in the private sector. I am beginning to think that the people slamming Romney for his wealth and success on this site are nothing but Democrats. I can’t imagine a Republican criticizing someone because they were successful and wealthy.

      I criticize him because hes never held a position he hasn’t swapped on. some things, climate for example, I can accept as the science is coming out.
      other stuff hes swapped on I can’t take as it shows hes had to change his entire philosophy many times, usually dependent on election seasons.
      and hes proud of romneycare. that alone is enough as every taxpayer has been underwriting that, not just MASS people.

      I’ve been a frequent visitor to this fine site for some time now, and I cannot recall a single instance of anyone slamming him for his wealth and/or success.

      In fact, I can’t recall anyone in the entire Republican side of things saying anything negative about Romney’s wealth or success.

      That could possibly account for your confusion.

    So what is Newt Gringrich. The man who created the concept of the national healthcare mandate through the 90s and through 2010. Gingrich voted for amnesty in 86 and voted against e-verify in the late 90’s. Gingrich ripped Paul Ryan’s budget Plan and Gingrich voted for the creation of the Department of Education under Carter. Gingrich was for green solutions and cap and trade and now supposedly Gingrich is against it. Gingrich is the King of the Flip Floppers and Brett baeir certainly doesn’t hold his feet to the fire or play gotcha questions. Talk about double standard.

      Romney has had his share of flip flops, during his 94 senate campaign he supported abortion rights,gay rights and approved of stem cell research while running as a Republican. He rather conveniently shifted positions on these issues just prior to announcing his intention to run for President, in 2006 he was an absentee Governor because he was out of state for a total of 200 days while he traveled about pandering for support from the GOP power brokers. Frankly, I am more than just a little disappointed by the entire field of candidates but I would sooner vote for Santorum than Romney ( and that’s saying a lot because I don’t particularly like Santorum).

    Uncalled for? Yeah, because it’s so unusual for any member of the media to actually do their freakin’ jobs. one giant club, eh boys? Well done, Bret Baier. For once, GOP voters, please nominate someone who is a bonafide right-wing, conservative. Romney? Gingrich? I can’t believe what I am seeing! The establishment Republicans are as dangerous and bad as the Democrats. Isn’t it interesting that the media, the Dems, and Rove et al want Romney? They hate Palin. They hate true conservatives. They laugh at Paul (even though he has many good domestic ideas). Nominate Cain, Perry, Santorum, Bachmann, or Paul. Anyone but these two elitist insiders. Please!

    I just can’t support Romney. He feels and acts priviledged and gets his feathers ruffled if he’s challenged on anything. He’s flip flopped on several key conservative issues and I just don’t believe he really has conservative principles behind his stated opinions–just political expediancy.

  • Anonymous

    IT was uncharacteristic of Baier, as I said yesterday, BUT Romney needs this to toughen up. Newt will gut him if he doesn’t. I hope it is a long battle (that Newt ulimately wins), but the battle must be prolonged at least until Super Tuesday to test our candidates and prep them for the general election. P.S. This weakness by Romney is concerning because this is nothing in comparison to what he is going to get from the MSM.

    B.O.2 cannot go five minutes without making it all about him and (giving me an instant headache–all about me). The Establishment and Dems (via open primary states) are going to vote for Romney. Dems do not mind Romney but why vote for him if you can have the real but brain dead thing, Obama. Establishments never support conservative candidates why should we support their “cannot win” candidates. We must vote for conservatives only! I think we should especially concentrate for the next three voting cycle to get as many conservatives in the House and Senate so Sarah has members in which to work in 2016.

    The really sad part is that Newt is the conservative alternative and he is more corrupt the this Pretty boy!!!!!

    Again if we are told we have to pick the most electable democratic scumbag than WHY NOT A TRUE LOYAL CONSERVATIVE?!!!!! If every candidate has issues we disagree with and we going to give up the nomination to these two clowns that have many issues we disagree with. THAN WHY NOT GIVE A LOOK TO RON PAUL

  • Anonymous

    If Romney can’t take hard questions from Brett I don’t know how he expects to stand up against the Liberal media Machine once he is the nominee. I have no doubt they will decimate him and his family with sexual allegations and would probably go as far as call his wife a whore. Make no mistake about it, any Republican nominee is going to be slandered, liabled and threatened openly without remorse! Get tougher or get out of the game! Meanwhile, they will be doing puff-pieces on Michelle and Barrack working in their White House garden, which they seem intent on banning for the American citizens. Our current President attended the most extreme of churches for 20 years and yet this media will crucify Romney for his religion. Mitt, just get out, Liberals haven’t even unlaced their gloves yet on you! How are you going to take the bare knuckles?

    I only watch O’Reilly when Dennis Miller is on. He loves the sound of his own voice, he should let Bret do interviews w/o his advice on humor!

    The questions asked were the same ones always ask Romney which he has given the answer many many times. Our country is a mess with lots of valid things to ask about for information about the candidate. They don’t need to be softball but asking the same questions coming from Axlerod’s desk isn’t necessary. We learned nothing new about Romney because no one ask. Brett should be better than that, I certainly understand why he avoided Fox. I watched Hannity interview if you could call it that, it was more Newt holding court. They don’t like Romney because he would be a hard man to influence, where Newt can be bought for a price as he has shown many times over. Newt missed the deadline in MO, it was only $1000 and very little paperwork. He is either broke or very disorganized dispite all his pompously.
