I’ve made no secret of my loathing for “The Hairdo”, AKA Mitt Romney. He’s the poster child for RINOs. He’s a gigantic flip-flopping fraud. And now, once again, he’s running for President.
Romney declared to cheers on a sunny farm in southern New Hampshire, “I’m Mitt Romney and I believe in America. And I’m running for president of the United States.”
The former governor and business executive aggressively challenged Democratic President Obama while trying to pitch himself to the coalition that makes up the modern GOP: fiscal conservatives, social conservatives, evangelicals and libertarians. Romney included nods to all as he sought to make himself the candidate with the broadest appeal and best shot at sending Obama home to Chicago as a one-term president.
Yeah, he’s trying to appeal to everybody. He certainly appeals to the Elephant Elitists, who have all but anointed him as The Chosen One. But if you really examine who he is and what he represents, he certainly won’t appeal to YOU.
- He’s pro-Big Government, as shown by his Massachusetts Health Care “solution”.
- He’s foursquare in favor of King George the Dim’s War Without End.
- He favors Corporate Welfare, such as ethanol subsidies.
- He claims to be “Pro Life”…but his record is anything but.
- He flip-flops on a regular basis on immigration.
- Worst of all: he believes in man-made global warming (AGW).
Anyone who purports to be a “conservative” who supports this tool is a waste of oxygen and should be forcibly prohibited from voting.
The irony of the situation is mind-blowing. Ron Paul is “extreme” and “unelectable”. But Mitt Romney? Why, he’s everything a “conservative” could ever wish for!

Are you really sure he is a Republican? He reads more like a Democrat.

Well you cant blame the me3dia for trying it on… They read “Brer Rabbit” a couple of years ago and think they can run a “Dont throw me in the briar patch” candidate of their choice.
When you enemies advise you to do something, its probably best not to do it. And the MSM is the enemy.

If only it weren’t just the leader of the Czech republic who has issues with point #6…
Will we ever see the day when a Western leader stands up to this AGW rubbish?

BTW, leaving Ron Paul aside for a moment, what’s your take, Vultch, on Cain?
June 8, 2011, 11:49 am at 11:49 am
My only issues with Cain are his love affair with the Warfare State and his cozy relationship with the Fed. Of all of the candidates not named “Ron Paul”, he comes the closest to qualifying as a real Conservative. I wouldn’t give two cents for any of the other candidates.

I’ve made my feelings about Mr Mittens known previously – but that said, I don’t know whether I could vote for Ron Paul either. He’s a crackpot, and his supporters are downright scary. Not that I worry, because when he’s not paying teh kidz to stuff the ballot-boxes for him at CPAC, he only has about 2% of the vote anyway.
Mitt will be the New York Times candidate; Ron Paul will be the Jew-hating isolationist wingnuts’ candidate; Cain is at the moment the Tea Party candidate, and T-Paw is the dull, grey, boring non-RINO GOP candidate. There’s still plenty of time for something exciting to happen, though!
Anyway, that’s my 2 cents 🙂
June 8, 2011, 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm
Who’s T-Paw? Sounds like a gangsta rapper. Ahhhh, giggle guts Pawlenty.
BTW, you do realise you just called a fellow editor here a “Jew-hating isolationist wingnut” who is “downright scary”.

Sorry – I calls it as I sees it. Look around on the various blogs or at blogger conferences – the main group of people supporting Ron Paul are anti-semites, isolationists, and kooks. “Barney Fife” and his ilk from Bolt’s blog springs to mind. He calls Israel’s blockade of Gaza “an act for war,” FFS. That’s like a magnet for all the Jew-haters who want to dress their Judenhassen in the ever-so-slightly-more-respectable “Anti-Zionism” cloak.
His small band of supporters are very, very loyal and very, very active in social media, but when it comes down to the only polls that matter – elections – he fails.
I’m not Jewish myself, but I make no apology for supporting Israel. When we – as a global community – said “Never Again,” I’d like to think we meant it. Easier & cleaner to fight antisemitism now than to fight another WWII.
I apologise for sounding so aggressive about it, but I’ve done battle with my share of Paulbots, and am a little soured by the experience.

It’s all good. Thought it was quite funny actually.
And fair enough. Indeed, never again. Lee Rhiannon can go shove it.
June 9, 2011, 12:24 am at 12:24 am
Jew hater? I am what some would call a Zionist: I believe wholeheartedly that the land occupied by Israel is theirs and should be theirs forever.
Isolationist? Maybe. Who died and made the USA the world’s policeman? How’s about Europe and Japan take responsibility for their own defense, and how’s about we keep our noses out of other countries’ business?
Nut job? Maybe……… 😉
I can’t say that Ron Paul is the perfect candidate; he isn’t. I don’t like his stance on the Middle East any more than you do. But who else is going after the Fed with any degree of seriousness? The Fed is a cancer that exists solely for the benefit of well-connected fat cats. It drains the wealth of ordinary Americans through its inflationary policies. And, to this point, it’s been unaccountable.
Who besides Ron Paul thinks that the US should step back from meddling in the affairs of every country on planet Earth? Every Team Elephant candidate besides him is fully behind the War Without End started by Bush.
I’m not a Paulbot. But I am a supporter, because, as imperfect as he is, he’s a long shot better than The Hairdo, Tim Fauxlenty, Michelle Bachman, and Sarah Palin.

Samson, oh Samson.
Anyway, as long as I’m paid out and it’s funny, no worries,
You didn’t mention Cain. I hope he doesn’t wilt like Trump.
For what it’s worth, get a businessman in there, folks.
Unfounded bias here, but the man did pizza. The.Man. Did. Pizza.!1
