Further proof that Romney is but a photo negative of Obama. Big government management over moral and Constitutionally patriotic leadership.
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.
Anybody but Romney, Perry, Cain, Bachman, Santorum, Gingrich, Huntsman....that leave Ron Paul. The only true conservative voice of reason in the field. Someone who adheres the constitution and the founders intent.
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.
Oh please don't compare Newt with President Obama The man is nothing more then a cheap, fat serial adulterer What the hell are you people thinking? My God it's so time to wake up an smell the stench of these republicans!
Yeah, I did compare Obama with Newt. Because they're both completely bought and paid for narcissistic con-men who are good at smooth, polished lying. Both of their records show nothing but dismal failures and corruption, but both have people who hang on their every word because they'd rather follow the pretty speeches instead of the results.
As related to Lily StCyr? And you think the GOP stinks? OH, I forgot, you must be from Saaan faraaan cisco. Take flowers there, because it really stinks in hippie land.
No, anyone, down to the dog catcher in Brokeneye, Arkansas could beat Obama. He is DONE. Name one incumbent who got elected with an 8% unemployment rate. Can't. He's toast, and even he knows it.
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).
A failed run at Ted Kennedy's seat in 94
A stint as Governor
A failed run at the GOP nomination
Now a second run...
If he's not a career politician, he sure is trying hard to be.
I'm nowhere near as thin-skinned as Mittens is. While I love my country, I can still laugh at our quirks and foibles......And yeah, I have an attitude-some call it being politically incorrect; I call it feisty.
sophmoric! I think that's why I liked him ;-) But I liked monty python better. The Argument clinic is classic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQFKtI6gn9Y&feature=related
I do not like Bill O, it has gotten to the point that I do not want to watch him at all or hear from him at all. Poor Bret. . .
Wither Bill Kristol?
Oh, and remember when Bill O' proclaimed Romney as the inevitable nominee on The Factor? Those were the days... :P
Why can't people talk about the damn video and topic? Always the Ronulans have to invade space to saturate any topic with Ron Paul adoration and worship. Bunch of damn nutjobs.
FYI: Dave Allen is Irish, Benny Hill (never cared for him) is British as in the cast members of Monty Python.
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.
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!
ROFL, I just watched some of them and I better stop before my laughing wakes everyone! Adam and Eve, she walks up to Adam "Guess whooo?' Adam stops eating the apple, "Don't be so bloody stupid!" LOL! I'm dyin' over here!! ;-)
Check out the one about the crybaby protesters from Toronto losing their library. I saw that and just about lost it laughing.
LOL! yes, Canadians are wacky. Must be the heritage- all monty python and benny hill? ;-) Oh, and if you want to watch a hilarious Canadian show- check this out. If you like it, go look for some of his other shows. My husband who is a southern boy from way back LOVES this guy! :-D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5GnBvpFnzA
We were talking about Canadian donuts on an earlier story Scoop had on. :-D Us Canadians LOVE donuts eh!
Did Cain get peeved at having to answer yet the same questions? This is stupid and mittens is a wuss. He's got a big government style granny state healthcare system, he's flip flopped as much as ketchup boy kerry, and his immigration answer STUNK.
Grow up mittens, or just take your ball and go home.
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.
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.
He's not just a flip-flopper, he's a liar. A weak, lilly-livered, limp-wristed, spineless, chinless, boneless, nutless, gutless, useless liar, at that.
Palin has had a mixed record on endorsements. It wouldn't surprise me to see her edorse Newt.
What would really shock me is an endorsement of Romney.
Ok its really spooking me out with these Alan Grayson ads to the right of me . is this just google ??????
I thought Brett Baier did a great interview with Romney. BTW, 2 weeks ago in an exchange with a Romney supporter, I said he didn't have a sense of humor. It was interesting to hear Bill O'Reilly make the same comment.
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? You'd think after 43 years, and the children grown, she would enjoy traveling with him and standing behind him on stage. Hum....
He has no sense of humor. Kind of hard for plastic ken dolls to have humor. If people were left to mittens for their only choice, they could always write in the bad lip reading mittens ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9L9A1IMTQo
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.
Romney complaining makes him look weak... Romney just wait till "IF" you are the nominee and you gotta do interviews against Obama on NBC, ABC, CBS... you're gonna get creamed! Foxnews doesn't owe you a damn thing...
The way the Republican party is now, we could actually accuse anyone of being a RINO. Reagan, if he were alive and politically active today, would be called a RINO.
