Romney: I Face 'Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy' (As Opposed To Romney's Fox News "True Believers"?
Newsmax ^ | 4/18/2012 | Newsmax Wires

Posted on 04/18/2012 4:26:11 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney says a "vast left-wing conspiracy" in the media has joined forces with the campaign of President Barack Obama to beat back his challenge...

KEYWORDS: 2012; democrats; elections; foxnews; gingrich; mediabias; newt; obama; romney; romneytruthfile; santorum
Yet another reason why Romney is a bad GOP nominee:

He says that there is a "vast left-wing conspiracy" (echoing Hillary's ridiculous past comments) to beat back his challenge of Obama, and has followed that by saying that Fox News is fair and balanced, providing "fair play," for his campaign.

But... BEFORE he said any of this this, Romney was caught saying that his campaign needed to reach out to moderates and independents because Fox News was the home of his "true believers."

Romney undermines his own campaign whenever he opens his mouth.

If he thinks he has trouble now, he’s going to be in real trouble when the media opens up on him with all guns.

As I said before, Romney consistently undermines his own campaign, always having to backtrack (as the Daily Caller pointed out today).

The GOP should have went with Newt or Santorum...

Mitt Romney says some seriously idiotic things and the media has kindly kept their mouths shut about it. That’s all about to end.

He has all the brains of Joe Biden and half the charm.

The moron came to Michigan and explained to us that the great lakes are fresh water and the ocean is salt water like we don’t know the difference.

Actually, the GOP made a huge mistake by not wholeheartedly embracing the tea party and Sarah Palin from the git go. They would have been swept into office coast to coast. Tea party enthusiasm was the best thing to hit conservatism and America since 1773, but the GOP shunned it. Too bad, so sad. GOP = Big Losers.

Yep.

But today it seems as if it was the Daily Caller to the rescue, though I could be wrong...

But they can’t protect him from the entire MSM.

I would have loved to see Sarah Palin run for the nomination.

Once it was apparent that she was going to decline this, my first pick was Perry, but he wasn’t yet ready for prime-time. Perry is a good governor, but needs to work on his public speaking.

Not so sure about Santorum, he was inexperienced in dealing with MSM and was trapped too often in side issues such as contraception.

Newt on the other hand is experienced, shrewd, skilled orator. He would be far more effective president for change in the right direction.

With Romney, as presumptive nominee, he must be pushed, forced and pressured into the conservative direction. His tendency is to lurch to the center. However he is pliable and can be pushed to the right.

Figure his back operation had something to do with that. If you remember, all the debates Perry did were done standing. He’d start out strong, then get weaker and more distracted in his answers as the session wore on.

I too wish he had stayed in longer. Was for Perry - for personal reasons - long before I was for Newt.

Now is the time to concentrate our efforts on pushing Romney to the right.

If your senator or governor has endorsed him, contact them and explain this to them.

Or any other person who’s endorsed him.

I think he’ll make a decent candidate if he understands that he cannot run as a moderate.

His wife is a great asset.

Perry does not need to work on his public speaking.

He is a great public speaker. He gets a crowd going, is fun, likeable and a good speaker.

The debates ... nuther story but I place the blame a lot on is condition.

Agreed - his speeches were/are great, and watching him work a crowd, doing retail politics, is inspiring. Sadly, it was the debates he was judged on. In my judgement, you lost a great candidate simply by not letting him sit down. I know back troubles well!

I was lucky enough to meet him in early 2011 and have a short chat with him (was in Austin for something else and the park around the Capitol is well worth the time to walk through and photograph). He is a real man - honest, hard working and down to earth. Friendly, as all Texans are, and slightly - well, not exactly shy, but more interested in you than himself.

As far as suffering during debates from having to stand too long, in reality the best thing that could have happened would’ve been if Governor Palin had gone ahead and gotten on the ballot nationwide, then stayed out of the “debates.” There was no profit to being in a “debate” moderated by a leftist - err, “objective” journalist. If it was a physical problem for Perry, he should have kept his powder dry and laid low until South Carolina. Then really hit Florida. Of course, that sounds like Rudy Guiliani’s strategy back in ‘08, but with a southern base it would have had a great chance of working.

If the GOP loses this November, the blame for that should fall completely in the lap of the GOP and the faux conservative media.

They decided their main objective was to sideline the conservative base. Talk about cutting your nose to spite your face. They did everything in their power, shamelessly using everything they can to boost Romney.

However he is pliable and can be pushed to the right.

He only moves right if it gets him votes, and what he's been saying lately leads me to think he believes he's got the nomination locked up and is going to lurch left to try and get Democrats and "moderate" (liberal) Republicans to support him.

You said it, CC - the media hasn’t even warmed up yet. If he thinks they’re mean NOW, God help us if and when he’s the nominee.

And this from the article:

““If people are bending or breaking the law then we’re going to have to focus on that and do something about that,” Romney responded.”

Riiiiiiiight.........”we’ve” been so good at that so far, haven’t “we”?

BHO likely won in ‘08 due to rampant fraud and law-breaking. Most of what he’s done ever since has been illegal and unconstitutional. And he hasn’t had to pay for any of it.

This will be an epically dirty campaign and we need a real scrapper.

How can SO many voters not see how weak this guy is before it’s too late???

“I think its on purpose.”

I sure thought so with McLame in ‘08 and it’s not looking much better so far.

Also - if I keep hearing “our” side say what a nice guy BHO is, I’ll tear my hair out. They’re so damned afraid of being called racist, they won’t be truthful. I loved it tonight on Hannity when Michelle Malkin was ripping the Wan a new one (as she always does) against ignorant Tamara Holder. She fiercely said “and Obama is NOT a nice guy!”

Refreshing for a change.

but he wasn’t yet ready for prime-time.

Perry was MORE than ready for prime-time - He was 1000 times more qualified that the big mouth 'conservative' that unleashed her venom on him. As more qualified than Cain and Mitt's cousin that were in the race and more qualified than Santorum. He's been leading TX for 12 years. He and Newt as really the only ones qualified. The Presidency isn't a training campl No need mitt to repeat mitt isn't qualified to run in the GOP with his very liberal record. NEWT, IMO, is clearly the only candidate to bring our country under the constitution again and restore the damage.

It shows why they ‘were assigned’ to trash Perry during the debate, as they know he is NOT one of them/GOP e. Patriots support each other and fight corruption/evil doers together.

Those with NOT a pro American spirit are fighting Newt now as they did Perry. Voters not paying attention were duped and they refused to listen.

One of the most hated things I have to occasionally face in life is religious fanaticism. Self righteous pious people who want to change my view, join the flock and be part of the herd.

Does not matter who or where the culture comes from, some are more extreme but be it Moslems or Mormons they all smell the same.

Check Rush Limbaugh - great research staff

Check Glen Beck - 95% of his wild predictions are coming true

Many of Obama’s Secret Service agents look like Farrakan’s “FRUIT(S) OF ISLAM” - making America very proud in Columbia

.
.

#1 - Ignore SNOPES.com - A scam - as is FACTCHECK.com (FACTCHECK is tied to “Weather Underground” member/bomber Bill Ayers in Chicago)

- It is run by a radical democrat couple and on any sticky political issue or topic SNOPES either refuses to investigate and/or even post or acknowledge it - SNOPES - like 99.9% of the urban and DC Beltway media - is a branch of the DNC

#2 - Obama refused to consult with Congress on Libya as is required since Viet Nam - Claimed he was only acting together with NATO and/or the UN - Sent in jet fighters and bombers as “backup” for France and other Euro countries that depended on Libya and Kernel K-Daffy for much of the oil

#3 - Obama shut down Gulf oil rigs and permits and has defied a Federal Judge’s order to open Gulf rig activity and exploration - Yet Cuba is working with China to put oil rigs in the Gulf very close to the Florida Keys

#4 - Obama gave billions to Brazil (George Soros and China are involved) and promised to buy much of Brazil’s oil for the US to use - while banning exploration, test drilling, and operations here in Alaska, off Florida, off California, on government land in the US - Production in US is “up” only on private property in the USA - while Obama and his surrogates and media (esp. MSNBC and CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC) spew the baloney that “under Obama oil production is “UP” - Actual oil consumption in the US is “DOWN”

#5 - The US Supreme Court recently kicked Obama’s appointed EPA Commies aside on a case regarding a couple in Idaho that for over 5 years has been threatened with MASSIVE DAILY FINES and ORDERS as they attempted to prepare their locally approved property to build a new home for themselves

#6 - Obama says the US Constitution is NEGATIVE to the Federal government and prevents the FEDS and President from saying and enforcing what they want to do -

The US Constitution spells out which Rights are those of The Citizens and The States

Recently Obama claimed that Congress was “really not in session” (in his opinion)

#7 - The “DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT” - passed by Congress and signed by Bill Clinton - I believe

Obama publicly stated DOMA is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and his Attorney General Eric Holder agrees - and they refuse to enforce it!

#8 - Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wants to “AMMEND” the 1st Ammendment to limit FREE SPEECH

“Congress Shall Make No Law......”

#9 - Obama & AG Holder designed and set up “Fast & Furious” to smuggle firearms into Mexico (hundreds of Mexicans have ben murdered as a result) - and several Border Patrol agents have been attacked by Mex drug gangs in the US - and one was killed

US agents in Mexico have also been attacked and killed

The illegal purpose of “Fast & Furious” was - and is - to “Fly under the (legal) radar” as Obama told Sarah Brady - and totally destroy the 2nd Ammendment and the Right of US Citizens TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS (not to go hunting and target shooting) - King George of England. etc. being an early problemo for early Colonists of America

Obama and AG Holder blame “Fast and Furious” on President GW Bush’s “Wide Receiver” tracking program that the ATF and BP and FBI were involved in -

“Fast and Furious” tracked NOTHING - Firearms Dealers in the US were told to illegally sell firearms to Mexican drug cartel for illegal transportation to Mexico

Who paid for those FIREARMS?

You did!

The BATF and FBI gave US Taxpayer’s cash to the firearms dealers

#10 - Like Food Stamps (now called “SNAP”) and Obamacare - Obama is about CONTROL -

“FREE” STUFF to BUY VOTES

To “RATION” food and healthcare

#11 - Executive Orders - XOs - Obama and his Chi-Town Thugs operate with Congress -

Disagree? RASCISTS!

Disagree? ANTI-AMERICAN!

#12 - Check out “Law of the Sea Treaty”

International UN control within a country of domestic rivers, lakes - and “alleged” WETLANDS (morning dew?) - The EPA and HLS working with the UN

#13 - Obama’s Big Dream:

An international INCOME and SALES TAX by the UN on all countries

-

I will post this on http://FreeRepublic.com - on several threads - others can comment - refute, add, debate, discuss -

I cannot pretend to know all the nasty schemes and scams that Obama and his Radical Socialists in the DNC, DSA, and CPUSA have been planning for many decades - and are now illegally implementing
