  1. The only person running for the next Republican president willing to do a “U” turn is Ron Paul and the only one that does not have skeletons in his closet.

  2. Ah, the lament of the “fiscal” conservative. As if government is the source of the problems this nation faces.

    All the while 4,000 innocent babies are murdered every DAY in this country in the name of choice.

    And sexual deviants are assured of their “rights”, when they would not have DARED to even mention their perversion only a few years ago.

    This nation spits in God’s face and dares him to do something about it. Well, look hard, for he is doing something about it and will do more.

    Vote in November as if it will make a difference. Judgement has fallen and will fall even harder if repentance doesn’t come. All the so called conservatives in the world won’t stop that.

    1. I get your point. I also understand how government helped to create an environment where immorality thrives. Socialism breeds corruption in the individual, and in a society. Safety nets provide the things that people used to rely on God for, and they went to the churches, and to God when things got tough. Communities were much closer nit, and provided their own protection. Free markets and a limited government regulated corruption much better, because those who cheated took real wealth from other people, and government was forced to prosecute.

      In the end, government cannot regulate morality. Not because laws don’t have an effect, but because the heart of the individual can only be regulated by the individual, and with God’s help. The effect of man’s laws will always be negative, due to the wicked nature of man. The only righteous laws are those that are based on God’s laws. If you try to use old testament laws to model what we do today, then you will miss the boat. The law was given to show us our inability to live up to God’s standards. Jesus fulfilled the law, and freed us from that bondage. We are now to live and let live, not judge and prosecute all manners of behavior in society.

      It is wrong for Christians to force our beliefs on others, yet it is righteous to protect the weak and prosecute those who would do harm directly to others. Behavior regulation through the use of force (the law) will never work. It never has on any level.

      This world is dying. God told us how it ends. We should set others free from tyranny, and live a righteous life that serves as an example to those who are lost, rather than use force to make people moral.

  3. Folks…sadly is doesn’t matter whether Romney or Obama wins in November, we’re all going down a very bumpy road for a while, although if Obama is behind the wheel you can increase the speed tenfold!

    But like my sister in the Lord said below…..there’s always Jesus. 🙂

    1. Jesus first, my friend. We know that the US is not a world player in the end, and the end is near. Our sovereignty will be finished off in a financial collapse, and we will just provide the cannon fodder for multiple wars until the anti-Christ appears. I’ll be gone by then, and will prep and avoid until then.

      1. Oh I agree, but we have many out there that don’t see it that way. But Psalm 146 clearly tells us where to put our trust.

  4. Holy smokes!! This is the best video I’ve seen in a long time. This needs to be shown on national t.v. a LOT !! Obama is doing all of this intentionally with Marxist dreams of a socialist America. I know people here hate Mitt Romney, but please consider what will happen if we don’t support him. If you think he will do all of what Obama is doing I think you’re crazy (not in a literal sense, lol).

    1. I’m inclined to agree with you. But I do dread the first debate between Romney and Obama. If Romney stumbles through this one like he did all the other debates, it’s game over. Most of them were battles between the other candidates. This will be a one on one, and he can’t hide in being quiet.

      1. Two establishment candidates having to knock each other based on policy while holding up the same agenda, should be interesting. I probably won’t even watch it.

  5. I got my ballet today. I’m in Hungary, so I have to send it to California. I had a hard time deciding who to vote for. Santorum is on the ballet. I am still voting for principle, I am still voting for Santorum. Please read American History guys.

    1. My sister was complaining that, when she was shopping for new appliances, evidently it’s getting harder and harder to find ones that don’t allow the utilities to “selectively power down” your appliance during periods of peak energy demand.

      Coming soon: a black market in non-green, non-government-controllable appliances.

      1. “Coming soon: a black market in non-green, non-government-controllable appliances.”

        COOL! Where do I sign up? Hopefully I’ll be able to find Edison light bulbs as well.

      2. Refrigeration is my profession. I’m smarter than their smart appliances. How will they control my woodgas generated electricity?

          1. Dead trees burn well. I might not be able to grow food, but my woodgas generator will pump right along. 🙂

  6. If I wanted America to fail, I’d replace the glorious 50 stars on the flag with a picture of me, and tell the world I was the messiah of hope and change – right up to the point of hopeless and changed. If I wanted America to fail…

  7. That’s a great video. Our government is made up of two different kinds of people right now. Quislings on one side, cowards on the other. They’re destroying a nation.

  8. If I wanted America to fail, I would lull Americans into a sense of helplessness and dependence. I would make them forget their identity as free human beings, and drum into their heads that their rights exist only at the whim of the government. I would put them into classes and treat them as ‘masses’ instead of individuals.

    1. ApplePie101, Are we in some weird, ‘Back to the Future”, “Groundhog Day” situation?..It amazes. There must be an inherently bad gene in the human DNA. We are intentionally going to repeat the past.

      1. I know. I can’t believe that people are willfully doing this to their children and grandchildren. It’s economic cannibalism.

  9. I know of someone who wanted America to fail- Satan.

    Why?

    ‘“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great Nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religious, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.” Patrick Henry 1776

    “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bond the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity.” John Quincy Adams 6th US President and son of John Adams’

    How unhappy he must have been with:

    ‘”The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.” The US Congress 1782’

    And that leaders in our country realized:

    ‘”Without a humble imitation of the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion, we can never hope to be a happy nation.” George Washington

    “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” John Jay the first Supreme Court Justice’

    (http://www.thelandofthefree.net/quotationchristian.html excerpts above)

    (http://www.cancertutor.com/Quotes/Quotes_Presidents.html excerpts below)

    Satan, the god of this world who blinds the mind of the unbelieving knew these things:

    ‘”Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”
    Charles Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence’

    ‘”If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instruction and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.”
    Daniel Webster’

    So what happened to our nation?

    Please see what Daniel Webster feared:

    ‘”If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country, I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, error will be; If God and His Word are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy, If the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will; If the power of the Gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land, anarchy and misrule, degradation and misery, corruption and darkness will reign without mitigation or end.”
    Daniel Webster’

    What Abraham Lincoln admonished:

    ‘”We have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”
    Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation’

    And what William Penn knew:

    ‘”Those people who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants.”
    William Penn’

    What happened?

    Satan is in the process of getting his wish for the destruction of our nation as America has rejected and forgotten our Creator, the One Who endowed us with certain unalienable rights, forgotten the One Who blesses or brings down nations. America has eliminated His mention from the classroom and prayer in Jesus’ Name; the Gospel is not known by many while churches sleeps and God is not feared as He ought to be.

    ‘”America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
    Abraham Lincoln’

    1. * typo I don’t want to get flagged for editing over: sleep, not sleeps in paragraph before the last quote excerpt.

  10. I normally don’t infuse politics on my Facebook page, but for this I will make an exception.

  11. If I wanted America to fail, I would allow Illegal immigrants to populate the country and give them the right to vote so they could choose our president and congressional representatives.
    If I wanted America to fail, I’d hire 99% Hispanic clerks and put them in the social security offices, the DMV, and the welfare offices so they can continue to give hard earned American dollars to those who step across the border, i.e. California.

  12. Obama hates black power, coal and oil. he has now signed another excutive order, this one to regulate fracking

      1. lol, I am afraid most of my family and friends fall in that “environment is the most important thing on earth’ category. I am from Canada after-all, I think Macleans’s did a study that showed we Canadians cared more about what has happened to the so-called damaged envoronment than we did for abortion. I find myself in constant ‘debate-mode’ I am afraid…I have been able to convince my teenaged nieces that its bull….baby steps!

        1. I do know how that is, but some are starting to come around, now. We have to get the ones that are registered and to the polls in November, keep on nibblesyble. 🙂

  13. Rush was right on the money and he was excoriated by the left for it, and by a lot of uninformed people who get there ‘thinking points’ from the leftist media. He said he wanted Obama to fail. Obama fails=America succeeds.

    1. “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”- 2 Chronicles 7:14

  14. If I wanted America to fail I would portray the Constitution as a living document instead of an enduring document. I would depict Capitalist as evil and greedy and Socialism as good.

    1. I would depict Capitalist as evil and greedy and Socialism as good.

      ….while pretending not to be a Socialist.

    1. That was great. Thanks for all of the links. Here’s another good one. Remember this from the ABC debate? Newt vs. Romney on Israel. No wonder Romney doesn’t want to debate him any longer. This was classic Newt!

      http://newtgingrich360.com/video/stand-up-for-newt-the-only-candidate-bold-enough-to-stand-up-for

      Think I’ll hop over to Newt.org and make another contribution. I’m still going to vote for Newt in the primary. Newt’s the only one that has had an energy plan for many months now. Guess Mitt was too busy fund raising and sucking up to the insiders to come up with any specific plans that will undo the damage O’s already done.

  15. Powerful. If I wanted America to fail it would be important to eliminate our borders. Let the population of our country be diluted by those who do not assimilate and don’t wan’t to assimilate. Create a hostility among us between those who live, and die, for our American ideals and those to whom they mean nothing and back these people’s indifference and hatred towards us by enacting laws that actually protect them or not enforcing laws whose basis is to protect us.

    1. Looove it! I have had email contact with Marianne for Newt(at least I think it is the same person)and she is a fierce debater and supporter for Newt(as all of us are!) Thanks Wodiej!

    1. At first, yes.

      Then I think of the Founders and all the suffering they endured. Push us far enough and we will take back our country-first by defiance, then by force just as they did.

      Time to restore the Republic.

  16. If I wanted America to (continue) to fail, I’d make it a law that all 535 member of Congress are “progressives,” that all 3 branches of Gub’mint be headed by career bureaucrats that have never done anything in the private sector, that the courts are the be-all end-all for arbitration, and that the UN and it’s meaningless treaties have domain over the US.

    Yup, that oughta do it.

    1. Dittos WestGaFlash – “… oughta do it”…

      ‘Cause when the ORIGINAL intent of the ORIGINAL words of the ORIGINAL “birther” document of our Republic, the U.S. Constitution, is ignored by the Executive branch and the Legislative branch and the Judicial branch and the career bureaucrats who just want their paychecks…

      Well, it doesn’t matter WHAT “natural born Citizen” means in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5.

      Maybe THAT is why the “anti-birther” Marxist neo-progressives moving through socialism toward full communism have managed to control the narrative with Saul Alinsky tactics and ridicule against those who simply want to DEFEND the ORIGINAL intent of the ORIGINAL words of the ORIGINAL “birther” document and specifically the eternal relevance and meaning of “natural born Citizen” in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5.

  17. U.S. Constitution or Communist Manifesto…

    or, If I Wanted America to Fail-

    This is Glenn Becks radio program I was referring to above –

    From The Blaze – April 22, 2012 –

    “Are We Headed Toward the Constitution or the Communist Manifesto? This Breakdown Tells You”

    “During his Thursday morning radio broadcast, Glenn Beck asked if America, on its current trajectory, is headed toward the values and principles of the Constitution, or rather, those of the Communist Manifesto.”

    >> http://www.theblaze.com/stories/are-we-headed-toward-the-constitution-or-the-communist-manifesto-this-breakdown-tells-you/

    – – – – – – – – – –

    It is either towards the Constitution and the Founder’s definition of an Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 “natural born Citizen” with two “Citizen” parents and Constitutional eligibility to occupy the Oval Office?

    Or…

    It is transformed away from the Constitution and the Founder’s definition of an Clause 5 “natural born Citizen” because it does NOT matter, to the “anti-birther” transformers, if the person who wants to be POTUS is a child of two “Citizen” parents or if one is a foreign born father citizen of Kenya?

    According to Clause 5, it is either one or the other, ’cause it can’t be both two “Citizen” parents and one “Citizen” parent, and it can’t be neither.

    So, it seems that I and Glenn, who does NOT think that the Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 eligibility of BHObama is a Constitutional issue worth looking into, are heading in the same direction after all.

    Eventually, Glenn’s look into the Constitutional showdown with the 10 points of the Communist Manifesto will lead him to finally… FINALLY… defend the ORIGINAL intent of the ORIGINAL words of the ORIGINAL “birther” document of our Republic, the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5.

    Glenn, I… we… we’re waiting for you Glenn.

    Hey, that’s written tongue in cheek 🙂 of course.

    But, yes… we’re waiting for Glenn and the other BIG Talkers on radio and tv and BIG Writers in print and BIG Bloggers to Talk Talk Talk and Write Write Write about the ORIGINAL intent of the ORIGINAL words of the ORIGINAL “birther” document of our Republic, and specifically the eternal relevance of “natural born Citizen” in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5.

    There are many others.

    Maybe you are one?

    Just google original birther document or original birther document of the United States.

    1. That’s it in a nutshell poljunkie. He defines everything needed to have America fail and nothing to make it succeed. Voting for him, as you say, confirms that you want America to fail.

      Obama succeeding means America failing.

      November’s election will have one of two results. Either Obama is reelected or the United States of America continues to be a great country. Can’t have both.

    1. 7 points…

      wodiej – the headline says it well –

      – – – – – – – – – –

      “Newt Trails Obama by Only 7 Points in Latest Rasmussen Tracking Poll (or It’s Not Over Yet).

      “These poll results are being withheld by the RNC and the MSM, who want no positive news about Newt in circulation, especially the fact he is only behind Obama by 7 points nationally.

      “The RNC establishment’s current strategy remains:
      Publish no poll numbers;
      spread the word that Romney is the nominee;
      have people vote based on blackout and misinformation
      expecting Romney to win big;
      then hit hard with Romney’s wins and Newt’s losses to bully Newt into dropping.”

      – – – – – – – – – –

      I onlined some money to Newt.org a couple of weeks ago, and I will do so again.

      The GOPE insiders, aka RNC and RINOs, should be FOR Gingrich.

      However, it seems that Gingrich’s diamonds of insight and articulation of the issues are not as appealing as plastic that is elastic when heated, so RommaCare will be the trump card to beat ObamneyCare… according to the GOPE.

      Time will tell… it’s not over until… the Electoral College caves or stands.

      1. Thanks Art, for not giving up and for putting your money where your mouth is! Lots of kudos me friend!

  18. …come this NOVEMBER 6th,2012 the LARGEST LANDSLIDE VICTORY will be registered by the CONSERVATIVE NOMINEE Romney or whom ever else for the Presidency of the United States of America.(period)

  19. Hey Scoop, I still can’t get this Disqus Profile email approval message to quit..no matter how many times I “Click to verify” I have to sign in on Twitter to post…any help?

  20. This was very good. Guess what the school kids and all their parents were wearing today at Mass? Earth day shirts. UGH…the green religion is creeping into the church.

  21. The end of the message should have been “If I wanted America to fail, I’d vote to re-elect Barack Obama.” The message is great except they aren’t saying who is at fault for all this mess!

  22. If I wanted America to fail, I would start with the children. I’d empower women then feed their nurturing instincts and penchant for fairness and compassion and use their positions as mothers and teachers to subdue the raging hearts of young males. The hand that rocks the cradle…and no Spartan mothers, these…

    I would declare “all women are equal” and pronounce virgins fools, teach sex without guilt in the classrooms and hand out contraceptives on every street corner, home delivery if needed. I would turn the most vile and base public clowns into religious icons of art and music and dare anyone to challenge for fear of being labeled a racist.

    I would ensure that every verbal challenge to the Party or it goals was spun and re-construed as a racist comment, a sexist comment a homophobic comment, an Islamophobic comment. There is nothing the old guard could say that I would not use to destroy him, to reflect his own evil back upon him, to cower him and weaken him with his own guilt and self doubt.

    But if I wanted America to fail, I’d elect a black, self-serving, egotistical, dancing pimp of a man as President of the US. In the long run, all will see the wisdom of that move for the ultimate objective of the Party. Following the success of the revolution, I would follow the Cuban plan for the surviving blacks. Five-Years- tops, it’s done.

  23. The surest way to destroy this country is to make it impossible to compete against the NEA for our children’s education. Parents need to be allowed to opt out of paying taxes for public education, and instead be given tax credits to home school their children.

    1. Sounds good to me. Then I wouldn’t have to pay to educate someone else’s kids since I don’t have any.

    2. Agree. That’s why I put my kids in private education, and cut the cable. Cutting the cable forced them to read. They got so hooked on reading that they started sneaking their books and flashlights under their covers at bedtime.

      Occupy Movement Targets America’s Youth http://shar.es/rQnme

        1. Private school was the BEST THING (100% without any shadow of a doubt) my parents ever did for me…I will forever thank them for their sacrifices to make that happen for me!

          1. Didn’t you have surgery on the 5th, Brian? I made a note so I wouldn’t forget to pray for you. Hopefully, everything went well?

            1. Sure did! I can’t really say for sure right now how everything went, since there were complications that are SUPPOSED to go away, but have not yet. But thanks for remembering me! 😀

      1. My kids love to read, also. Just not what I want them to. Therefore, I break out the dictator authoritarianism on them, forcing them to read “boring government stuff,” they whine. Private school is an excellent alternative. I find it criminal that you have to support public education, even though your kiddos go to private schools. The smartest kids in med school seem to have either been home schooled, or graced enough to be taught by their parents. Go figure.

  24. “If I wanted America to fail…”

    The video is an excellent, poignant and focused analysis of… what?

    Today only, or more than 100 years of an ideological putsch?

    – – – – – – – – – –

    For those who might not be clear about what a “putsch” is and what a “putschist” is –

    This right on definition is from the American Heritage Dictionary –

    putsch also Putsch (poosh)
    n. A sudden attempt by a group to overthrow a government.
    putschist n.

    Now we know what BHObama meant when he said, “… we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America”.

    Without a properly vetted ID, BHObama has successfully managed to “OCCUPY” the Oval Office even though he is not “… eligible to the Office of President…” according to the words of Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5.

    – – – – – – – – – –

    My comment which follows is not the only and best analysis, but history is history and the truth of history has no agenda and cannot be denied.

    For America to FINALLY fail, the 100+ year effort by the “we-know-better-than-the-Founders-who-knew-what-natural-born-Citizen-meant” progressively “social justice” Marxist putschists would need to reveal their political poker hand and “OCCUPY” the Oval Office.

    This is in addition to the 10 points of the Communist Manifesto that Glenn Beck talked about on his radio program.

    The 100 year ideological putsch to fundamentally transform America from the land of the free and the brave, aka an individualist constitutional republic, to the land of the serf and the slave, aka an collectivist democracy (rule by the many) / oligarchy (rule by the few) commune, seems to have reached fruition with Putschist-in-Chief BHObama, aka THE “putscher” Man.

    Oh well, that is one perspective.

    Time will tell –

    … if America is “transformed” away from
    … the ORIGINAL “birther” document of our Republic, the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5… AND Fails.

    Time will tell –

    … if America is restored to
    … the ORIGINAL “birther” document of our Republic, the U.S. Constitution, specifically Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 and continues to defend the Founder’s meaning of “natural born Citizen” with two “Citizen” parents… AND continues to succeed.

    PS.
    Just google original birther document without or with quote marks.

  25. If I wanted America to fail, I would set up a class structure in the United States, pitting the poor against the rich, and vice versa.

  26. A magnificent piece of work … absolutely magnificent!

    Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

    Illegitimi non carborundum.

    Barracudas Maximus.

  27. Since this is an open thread I will post a link to Glenn beck’s NRA speech that someone asked me about .

    GLENN BECK – NRA Annual Meetings 2012 Speech

  28. How is Shirly Sherrod Brown running an ad on therightscoop asking for help to regulate political speech?

  29. This is exactly why Newt can’t get traction, because he sat on the sofa with the DEVIL Nancy. Our decline began with Nixon and has hit light speed with LIAR Obama. To the politicians and media we are no longer stupid and we are coming this November for YOU!

    1. The decline began with Woodrow Wilson and the progressive movement. It picked up speed in the 60’s and hit warp speed with Obama.

                1. lol…I was saying to myself, “he’s got to be joking”, but then who knows…I owe you one!

            1. Ah come on ABC, algae will save us. Problem is, those who believe in evolution will be burning future generations as gasoline. So sad to believe in the Great Amoeba instead of a great God.

          1. We had our chance to put someone in better than Romney, so I am doubtful that most conservatives want to do much about the establishment and it’s continuance of “business as usual”. I will be happy to get Romney in there just to get Obama out, but if we are going to stop this train wreck we need a bigger gun than Romney.

        1. if the morman is elected, it will only be a bandaid. but the bandaid may give us time to restore and find a true conservative LEADER

          1. I agree. Romney will be a lot better than Obama but he won’t be the one to save the country. He will stop the pedal from being mashed to the floor, though, and if we are lucky he will be a good President and make some serious changes for the better. I’m not counting on it, but I heard that Reagan was expected to be a moderate and he governed as a true conservative. Shock us, Romney. Please don’t give us what we expect from you. Do better.

            1. Do you really think that he will be “a lot” better? I don’t. I just think that he would be slightly restrained by his party affiliation, and the front that it requires to maintain the illusion of conservatism.

          2. The establishment won’t allow it. They will take us down as planned. Romney is establishment. The excuses will be a bit different, but nothing else.

        2. Mittens will save us. He is “severely conservative,” and as such, he has a track record of creating jobs through capitalism, and he will repeal Barack Huesseincare.

          1. Check out Romney’s pathetic record of job creation when he was governor of Massachusetts and stop kidding yourself. He likes parts of Obamacare and won’t distance himself from Romneycare… and he will say anything to get elected, so we can’t count on him repealing ALL of Obamacare. He is the lesser of evils because he is not a Marxist, but I am not convinced he can beat Obama. He is another very weak candidate… an establishment moderate, just like Bob Dole and John McCain.

        3. He’s a step in the right direction, at least. Obama will do everything he can in the next term to end capitalism and you know it. He does it behind the scenes bypassing Congress (through the EPA, the NLRB, and his czars, for example) so he won’t be able to be stopped.

          I don’t care for Romney, but Obama is the end of us for sure.

          1. I agree with what you are saying, but Bush used those regulatory agencies to enact tyranny and stomp out real free trade as well.

      1. Bull. Obama is a socialite for sure but it did not start with him. I absolutely started with Al Gore and his green machine philosophies turning everything upside down. Add to that Bush’s deregulation of US banks to look the other way with providing and trading default loans sucking up the housing markets and business’ at their lowest affordability. People lost their jobs because of it and could not keep their homes. Top that off with 60 years of wars directed by the USA no friekin wonder people are up in arms. You are obviously bias with your ‘blame it all on the current guy no matter what its his fault. Narrowmindedness and purposeful blindness all around is what brought on the decline of America and the world as well as inviting immigrants that did not play by OUR rules but set up their own societies within ours and EU’s while bleeding us not just one way but multiple duplicated ways that the world has become a welfare, bankrupt oligarchy. Don’t tell me its all Obama’s fault Jake.

    2. He did get plenty of traction until the lies and smears from the Romney ‘dealth star’, the establishment’s willful deceit, and the conservative media’s pushing Romney came along.

        1. Here are a few; said Newt resigned in disgrace, when it was only a few who wanted him out and he had over 200 members who voted to keep him as Speaker. The ethics charges happened a couple years earlier. Check out Byron York’s article on how Newt was smeared by the Dems and then was found innocent 3 years later when no one cared. How about when he said he was a lobbiest for Freddie, when J.C. Watts(who was at the helm of a housing watchgroup at the time Newt was employed for Freddie) said he never heard from Newt once on Freddie or Fannie and he would have because of his position. Plus not one congressman/woman has come forward to say he did..where are they? The most egregious of all is his lies about how important of a roll Newt had in Reagan’s inner circle. Check out Jeffery Lord’s article about that falsehood. Sen. Graham who helped instigate that coup that ousted Newt said he regretted it as they have gotten nothing done since Newt left..not one thing done. I think those are enough to convince you…need anymore cause I got them?

    3. Romney did a lot more damage than sitting on the couch with Pelosi.

      Here’s what Mitt Romney supported as Governor of Massachusetts:
      1. Pro-abortion with taxpayer funding (added it to RomneyCare, refused to line-item veto it).
      2. Pro-government mandated healthcare.
      3. Pro-government mandates in general (“I like mandates” his own words on tape).
      4. Pro-gay marriage with full state sponsorship (was first Governor to install it, had earlier broke the law in his quest to issue gay marriage licenses, then called opponents of his actions “right-wing”).
      5. Pro-gay adoption – he signed into law gay adoptions in Massachusetts with NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION.
      6. Pro-transgender education to children in public schools (promoted by Governor Romney’s administration).
      7. Pro-global warming caused by human activity (his own words)
      8. Pro-environmental regulations to combat global warming (imposed massive environmental regulations in Massachusetts, according to the Wall Street Journal).
      9. Pro-taxes on businesses (closed loopholes, then raised business taxes by $300 million as Governor of Massachusetts, according to USA Today).
      10. Pro-amnesty for illegal immigrants (path to citizenship for illegals, his own words)
      11. Anti-second amendment (supported the strict gun control laws of Massachusetts).

      Romney’s track record is to the Left of most Democrats.

      Massachusetts under Romney was NOT successful – or healthy, socially or fiscally:

      Northeastern University economist Andrew Sum, who has researched Romney’s record, said the state lagged the U.S. average during that period in job creation, economic growth and wage increases.
      “As a strict labor market economist looking at the record, Massachusetts did very poorly during the Romney years, he said. “On every measure you’ve got, the state was a substantial under-performer.”

      At a campaign rally Romney’s supporters handed out flyers promoting the candidate’s economic credentials, a central theme in his campaign, saying he had “closed a nearly $3 billion budget deficit without raising taxes” during his term in Massachusetts. But the $3 billion deficit projected by Romney and state legislators in January 2003 at the start of his administration never rose that high because a surge in capital gains taxes more than halved the shortfall to $1.3 billion. While Romney and the state legislature cut $1.6 billion from the 2004 budget, analysts noted he also generated more than $500 million by raising fees and by closing corporate tax loopholes — actions considered tax rises by some businesses.

      “There’s never been under his watch an economic turnaround to speak of,” Michael Widmer, president of the independent Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation, told Reuters. “We added a few jobs over the last three years of his tenure but very few. He also raised corporate taxes and fees.”

      1. Romney’s AWESOME history…

        Isn’t Romney AWESOME history EXACTLY what the GOPE has said is needed to contrast with BHObama, capelady? (Ok, sarc is off)

        Romney’s history that you’ve delineated makes me wonder what is it about Romney that the GOPE does NOT like?

        If the GOPE likes Romney as is, does the GOPE really believe that Romney represents the BOLD colors, not pale pastels values of Pres. Reagan better than Gingrich?

        And, if the GOPE thinks that Romney and his AWESOME history is what we need to defeat the OCCUPIER-in-Chief Obama, MR. “putscher” MAN, does that mean that the GOPE does NOT like Newt Gingrich because his history is worse than Romney’s history… or… better than Romney’s history?

        Things are getting confusing when Romney’s AWESOME history is worse than Gingrich’s history… and the GOPE with a straight face says THAT is good… so vote for Mitt, or get stuck with BHObama.

        Alice, where’s Alice, maybe she can explain this Wonderland of a “curiouser and curiouser” flim-flam the GOPE is playing with the voters.
