Political "Death of A Salesman" : Romney's Pathetic Self-Implosion before Tampa (Vanity)
None ^ | 2012-05-04 | Patton-at-Bastogne

2012-05-04


I haven't yet located Jim Robinson's post entitled "Frank discussion re our loss to Obama/Romney and the future direction of FR and tea party movement".

I'm sure that it's content was great.



I would like to be very careful in my next few words.

To summarize:

"Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin will be the 2012 GOP Nominees in Tampa".



I am neither an alleged spiritual prophet, or a pollyana madman.

I have worked much in politics, including with Pat Buchanan, Dole-96, Bush-43 (Florida "Ballot-Chad" Protestor") and Newt Gingrich in Florida this year.

Something in my gut intuition tells me that the O-Romney GOP E-RINO Campaign is in a state of "quiet fear and desperation", albeit in a stealth mode ...

Forgive me for the historic analogy, but the situation has a peculiar feel about it, similar to Gen. Patton's vague suspicions that the German Wermacht was "up to something" just prior to launching the 1944 Battle of the Bulge".



Yesterday (Thursday, 2012-05-03) a news report (via Fox News, of course) mentioned something about Condi Rice being a "strategic win" Vice Presidential pick for Romney.

That's peculiar, because Condi Rice has repeatedly said that she's not the LEAST bit interested in such a position ... ever. That's been Condi's staement for a couple of years now.

Why would Romney be floating such an idea (so very publicly, at the national news media level) ... when he's been crowned the presumptive "King Romney" by E-RINO insiders such as Karl Rove (ad nauseum) ?


Is O-Romney frightened by a recent (unknown) event ?


What about the Marco Rubio (Florida Hispanic "Wonder Boy") discussions about being Romney's VP ?

Have they secretly floundered ?

Did "Rock Star" Senators Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan see polling data that says that even if he becomes a Southern Baptist (next week), that Romnet is TOAST with the GOP Conservative Base ?



A peculiar quiet has settled-in among the GOP Conservative Leadership ... Newt, Sarah, Santorum, Perry ...

I do not sense that this is the "Quiet of the Vanquished" ... but rather the same "quiet before the storm" that saw General George Washington's suprise defeat of the Hessians at Trenton, a CRUCIAL turning point of the Revolutionary War ...

Newt Gingrich repeatedly discussed this EXACT metaphor during his (active) campaign ... especially the "Victory or Death" aspect ...

From the British Empire's perspective (or Fox News), wasn't Gen. George Washington's conventional military campaign "suspended", "defeated", "financially broke with furious creditors" ... with Gen. Washington personally criticized with having a "monsterous ego", "grandious delusions of victory", needlessly calling on his troops to fight a "lost cause from the very beginning" ?



I can easily imagine Fox New's Shepard Smith (and the other recent GOP talking-head) ... telecasting this Fox News report about Gen. George Washington's defeat ... and that of the American Tea Party, as well ... using the above words ... as a part of the British Empire's "official" propaganda messenger boys ...

Coincidentally, these were (approximately) the VERY SAME WORDS that Fox News and Townhall used to describe Newt Gingrich's political decisons over the past few days ...

Again ... those Fox News derogatory terms for your convenience ...

a campaign "defeated", "financially broke with furious creditors" ... with Newt Gingrich having a "monsterous ego", "grandious delusions of victory", needlessly calling on his troops to fight a "lost cause from the very beginning" ...



We Free Republic Conservatives are well familiar with the literary phrase "Who is John Gault ?"


Let me ask "you" (gentle reader) a question ...

Who is Newt Gingrich ?

Who is Sarah Palin ?

Who is Rick Santorum ?

Who is Rick Perry ?

Who is Herman Cain ?

Who is Michelle Bachman ?



Do any of these names conjure up character-descriptions like "weak", "afraid", "cowardly", "visionless", "foolhardy", "phony", "money-grubbers", "liars" ???

Hardly, and quite the opposite !

For me, every one of these men and women (from my perspective) ...

Conjure up words like "courage", "intellect", "strength", "character", "faith", "VISION" ....



So what's my premise here ?

Again ...

"Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin will be the 2012 GOP Nominees in Tampa".



The O-Romney campaign won a Pyhrric Victory with his 650-whatever delegates "won" for Tampa ...

A tactical and strategic fool ... akin to Hitler's military genius (/sarcam-off) ...

O-Romney has butchered has own (potential) Infanrty Corps the Tea Party and Free Republic Conservatives) when he "carpet-bombed" his GOP Competitors (Newt, Santorum, Perry, Cain) into leaving the field ...



O-Romney "never once" articulated a "single" original "conservative" political idea the entire 2012 primary season ...

Not a "single" one ...

Obama defeats Romney in November 2012 ... period.

Marco Rubio, Colin Powell, Paul Ryan, Juan McCain, Condi Rice ... all know that ...



When Dan Rather (hail to Feeeper Buckhead) yesterday (2012-05-04) said that Romney might defeat Obama ... it's high-time to get the Bravo-Sierra knee-high waders on ...

O-Romney is toast.

And even Mittens knows it ... that explains the "desperation" move of publicly (begging) for Condi Rice to (please) come to Mitt's rescue ...

And Condi ain't buying Mitt's baloney ...



"Successful" (presumed) presidential candidates ARE NEVER BEGGING for Vice Presidential mates ... three (full) months before the GOP Convention's door opens ...

Never.

Romney is in "strategic" level trouble. Like the German Army at Stalingrad, he's sooo screwed ...



What happens next ? Funny you ask ...



“The Plan”



1) Romney’s Hollow-Support:


No one really likes Romney (including George & Barbara Bush) …

The GOP E-RINO club (and Rush Limbaugh) only selected Romney because the other 7-8 GOP candidates wouldn’t drink their Bain Capital “betray America” kool-aide …

Supporters of Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman … loathe Romney

The only folks who voted for Mittens were 75-year old-school “Gerald Ford” Republicans absolutely terrified that they were loosing all their stock-market savings … and plus they don’t really use the internet (FreeRepublic, et al) … all these folks watch is ABC and CNN …

Of course, lots and lots of Mormons voted for Romney … which is why Romney dominated in Utah and Arizona … and got clobbered in The South …

Evangelical Christians … the political “boots-on-the-ground” Infantry of any successful GOP Campaign … are quietly scared to death over this “Mormon Used Car Salesman”



2) “Genuine Conservatives” REFUSE to Play the Juan McCain Game again in 2012:


Tea Party Members …supporters of Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman … loathe Romney

Again … the “political campaign infantry” of the other 7-8 candidates believe (with good reason) that Romney’s $$$ bought endorsements, and Willard’s “despicable” lying-through-his-teeth, and finally, Willard’s “scorched-earth” TV ad campaigns against Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry … and (almost) Rick Santorum in Pennsylvania …

Make all these potential GOP voters … and campaign workers … “vomit” at the mention of Mitt Romney …

The last time the GOP E-RINO establishment told us “Patriots” to fall on our swords for “The Party” (may it’s unholy pro-choice name be blasphemed forever) … they gave us that ...


(fill-in-the-blank) Juan McCain … who literally gave Obama the U.S. Presidency on a Silver Platter.

Not again, baby … certainly not in 2012 !



3) “The Secret Patriot Resistance” is Already Born:


OK … so Romney won a lot of delegates … but still 500 short … just like Hitler surprised the French in 1941 …

What to do, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman ???

Suspend your campaigns. Offer a “token” quasi-soft endorsement of Mittens.

Do NOT give your delegates to Romney.

The Goal ?

Willard “stops” the negative TV ads against everyone.

All the campaign money Romney still has left (aircraft, bullets, bombs, ships) sit “useless” in a warehouse.

No more casualties … for the “good guys” … Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman

And they quietly wait for the surprise counter attack … in Tampa …



4) Mitt Romney’s “Tsunami of Severe Verbal Campaign Gaffes” … until August 2012 …


Every week Romney says something STUPID …

Every week Romney inches (crawls) back to his LIBERAL POLITICAL ROOTS … trying to win-over the political Holy Grail … the (highly over-rated “Independents) …

Every week … genuine Conservatives QUIETLY decide in their hearts … “There’s no way in Hell I’m voting for that LIBERAL idiot”

Every week … genuine Christian Conservatives QUIETLY decide in their hearts … “There’s no way in Hell I’m voting for that Mormon Anti-Christ cult member”

Every week … Conservatives in California, Texas and 12 other (Primary Voting) states that the GOP E-RINO Club just “tossed-aside” … will QUIETLY decide in their hearts … “There’s no way in Hell I’m voting for that E-RINO Pubbie Imposter”



5) Ten Days prior to the GOP Convention … Sarah Palin’s D-Day Landing …


On that day … Sarah Palin … the great conservative Peace Maker will assemble the entire group of 2012 GOP Candidates … except Mitt Romney, of course …

Sarah Palin … and … Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman …

Sarah Palin will declare Mitt Romney’s Candidacy a “complete fraud” … their ammunition will be all the Romney Campaign Gaffes and (new-old-again) “Liberal Mitt Romney” political positions …

Sarah Palin will (in her speech published on YouTube to avoid Fox News Censorship) … will personally nominate the entire GOP Ticket …

Sarah Palin will nominate Newt Gingrich for President …

Newt Gingrich, when it’s his (choreographed turn to speak after Sarah Palin) … will ask Sarah Palin to be his Vice President …

As Sarah Palin returns to the podium to accept, she will them “suggest” that Rick Santorum be US Attorney General

As Rick Santorum gives his “informal” acceptance speech, he will “suggest” that Rick Perry be the Energy Secretary …



6) An American Conservative Movement “On Fire Again” …

Over the next ten days before the Tampa Convention’s Opening Bell …

All of Romney’s uncommitted delegates will be invited to meet with all the above folks …

Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Cain, Michelle Bachman …

Mitt Romney can’t run any more campaign ads, because the primaries are all over … Romney’s Bain Capital Campaign Money is “useless” …



7) The 2012 Tampa GOP Convention in August …


Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin win the GOP nomination on the “first ballot” …

Mitt Romney is forever “politically exiled” to the GOP’s Planet Kolob … to join his loser friends like Juan McCain and Bob Dole and Jeb Bush …



8) The 2012 Presidential Election …

Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin win the election in a “Ronald Reagan Landslide”

I another thread I had proposed the idea of doing another Dan’s Bake Sale in downtown Tampa during the Convention.

Patton@Bastogne is expounding on what could happen once the Tea Party makes its stand....

Imagine...80,000 Tea Party faithful, non violently filling the streets until they are heard.

The purpose/result may or may not to overthrow the nomination process, but at least they could help ensure Conservatism in represented in the Party Platform...with a stern and visible reminder that Tea Partiers will be elected nationwide to hold the GOP nominee accountable for their actions.

Remember, JimRob called a truce, not an article of surrender.

Peace.

All you need to know is that it will be a much tighter race than many imagine ~ and the key state will be Virginia. Whoever wins Virginia wins everything.

Now that's a really tight race.

With three Southern states finding campaign rules being changed at the last moment ~ Virginia, South Carolina and now Nevada (in just 3 months!) it's possible there will be more of this sort of thing in the Northern states just now moving into their primary seasons.

Everyone really needs to keep their eyes on the petty little law suits over procedures that could end up removing all the challengers from elections ~ like what happened in South Carolina this week!

We have some DOWN TICKET problems that are quite serious and defy easy explanation. Is it the Establishment destroying campaigns by eliminating elections? Are there DNC/Commie agents working to cause institutional disarray in the Fall elections?

Fur shur no Republican will be safe going door to door this year in Virginia lest he run into a Republican who is really POd about the primary ~ can you imagine what's going to be happening in SC ~ no campaign victory parties for one I'd imagine ~ too risky! Can the legislature even meet after this.

And Nevada ~ what in the world are the vaunted Mormon warriors doing if a small group of libertarians can pull in all the chestnuts from one of their primary balliwicks?

The fact the Democrats in West Virginia are already prepared to grab shovels and picks and go hunting for out of state politicians does worry me a bit ~ they're next door, and I'm in between where they are and where they'll be going next. They'll make FarmAid look tame.

They would far rather lose than give up their corruption. Half a loaf from Obama would make them much happier than and end to corruption from an honest conservative.

It is time to leave fantasy land and start living in reality, alright?

Much as I wish Sarah would have run, she didn’t, and Newt was a dud. Smart as he is, he fails to connect with people and comes across as really arrogant, and won what...two states?

Yeah, I voted for Newt in FL. and I’m sure a number of other people around here voted for him in their respective states, but damn near everyone else did not. He simply is not a good candidate, sorry, time to wake up, we are about to lose America to a muslim communist and Newt Gingrich can’t do a damn thing to stop it.

Oh, I think the Bushes like Romney just fine. He's their kind of people. While the zombies can find no difference between Romney and obama, I can find no difference between Romney and any Bush.

If your core thesis is that Romney is toast because "the base" don't like him, I'd remind you that "the base" is a minority. They(we) are outnumbered even by the "independents." I'd love to see a Newt/Sarah ticket, but I know when I wake up tomorrow that it will have been ...only a dream...only a dream...

Palin bought time at a storefront near the Convention. I’m planning on showing up for the Con. Matter of fact, I think I’ll be there or be Reticulan.

However, don’t expect Romney NOT to be the nominee. He will be.

The Establishment stole it fair and square.

Best,

Chris

If Sarah assembles what you say, she will have shown heroic courage.

But recently I had a different take:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2877402/posts?page=71#62

Almost a given that Obama will win. The people that will “hold their nose” are not enough to put the RINO over the top. The unions will ensure Obama gets a 2nd term.

Now here are some popcorn scenarios I am hoping for in the event that Obama is elected:

* The Tea Party members of the House increase their numbers in 2012 and are strong enough to vote for Michele Bachmann as Speaker of the House. Conservatives everywhere are ecstatic at this development. Michele wastes no time in prosecuting cases that have languished under the previous Speaker.

* The press finally gets on to the Fast & Furious case to expose Obama and Holder either as culprits or catches them in obstruction of justice. There is a reason they are not providing more than 10,000 pages of documents subpoenaed by Congress; they are hiding something and the deadline to comply is end of May 2012. Just today it’s reported that Issa has the contempt papers prepared against Holder.

* The Sheriff Arpaio case breaks wide open and the press finally starts reporting it to the public. The vetting that should have taken place in 2008 will finally start.

* Obama is impeached. Race riots are threatened if he is convicted in the Senate. Spineless Senators reject blatant and voluminous evidence and proof that Obama is an usurper, and as a result are hounded and tracked by Tea Party Patriots who pound a never-ending beat that they will be primaried if they ignore the overwhelming evidence and proof and choose to back down from convicting Obama. Trent Lott Never again!

* Obama is driven from office and Biden moves towards being sworn in but there is intense uproar by the public and by TP members in Congress that if Obama was never legitimate, then Biden cannot be sworn in.

* While hashing out at the SCOTUS the status of Biden’s legitimacy for ascending to the Oval Office, Speaker Bachmann is voted by the House to be sworn in as President Pro Tem but RINOs and dems in the Senate refuse to vote for cloture to approve Speaker Bachmann as President Pro Tem and Senate Majority leader McConnell refuses to go nuclear to bring the chaos to an end.

* Sensing an unfavorite ruling by SCOTUS regarding his legitimacy to ascend as President and with Speaker Bachmann’s vote in Congress delayed by RINOs in the Senate, Biden makes his move and gets himself sworn in as President; consequences be damned.

* Liberals everywhere are bubbly and tingly over Biden’s hubris proclaiming he is the President they always wanted.

* A special election is held in 2014 for President with initially Bachmann and Biden squaring off. Romney tries to get in again but this time conservatives are after blood and Romney hasn’t a chance against the anti-RINO mood of the electorate.

* McConnell gets primaried and pilloried in 2014. He ends his “career” in disgrace.

* During the special election of 2014 SCOTUS weighs in with a decision on Biden and rules that he was never legitimately VP and therefore must step down immediately from the Oval Office. Bachmann is sworn in.

* Hillary throws her hat into the ring against Bachmann in the 2014 Special Election.

Now Who wins? How do you complete this scenario?

Pass the Popcorn ........

OK...

This reads like a pleasant fantasy. Calling it a “plan” is a bit of a stretch.

I’d purely love a Newt-Sarah ticket. Actually, I’d prefer a Sarah-Cain ticket, but if wishes were horses than beggars would ride.

Not that I would be upset if it did happens this way, mind you.

It's is a good read. However, this will have to be classified under wishful thinking.

Unfortunately, Mitt has it in the bag. Mitt and the GOP-e scorched Earth policy against Conservatives was successful.

Short of a miracle, there is NO stopping Mitt from buying and smearing his way to the nomination.

Wisconsin has far less national meaning than is commonly imagined.

However, the crowd bit off more than it could chew when they put their boy Priebus in charge of the RNC.

That's run as bad as Wisconsin under the Democrats and it's not going to get better.

“Short of a miracle, there is NO stopping Mitt from buying and smearing his way to the nomination.”

We are the miracle.

Here’s my idea: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2878731/posts

You're "absolutely" correct about the Miracle Aspect of this ...



Let me ask you this ...

Is anything too difficult for our God (Jesus Christ) to do if ...

Christians in America ... start praying "everyday" in earnest for Him to deliver His People from the (genuinely) anti-Christ Mitt Romney ?

My Bible tells me that "yes, nothing is too difficult" for Christ to do ...



And I genuinely believe that the miracle (from Christ's hand) will indeed come ...

Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin "will win" the 2012 GOP Nomination in Tampa !

"Newt Gingrich repeatedly discussed this EXACT metaphor during his (active) campaign ... especially the "Victory or Death" aspect ... "

I'm sure I read that Newt endorsed Romney?

"I’d purely love a Newt-Sarah ticket. Actually, I’d prefer a Sarah-Cain ticket, but if wishes were horses than beggars would ride.'

As long as we're dreaming - I want a PALIN/WEST ticket!!

It was reported incorrectly that Newt endorsed Romney. In fact, Newt suspended his campaign and said Romney would be better than O.

Sounds good to me!! That being said, put me on the list to show up in Tampa. I am on the Space Coast and would love to ‘get together’ with other patriots.

I take a back seat to no one in wishing Romney’s implosion before Tampa, but I do wonder why so many people believe Sarah Palin would allow her family to endure the things that stopped her from running for President — for the second spot on a ticket for the second election running?

Wouldn't that be wonderful! I hope you're right.

On the other hand, being a realist, I have prepared myself to have shake my head at even Palin if she goes the "pragmatic" route of lose by winning with a fundamental liberal.

I hope you're right. I'm praying for a miracle that includes Mitt Romney vanquished.
