Mitt is Kicking Butt Out There
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | May 25, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 05/25/2012 5:08:11 PM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Mitt Romney yesterday on his website and his YouTube channel (he has a YouTube channel) released a new ad entitled, "Day One, Part 2." Romney's staying on message. There's one thing... I probably, in the near future, need to spend a little bit more time in this. But you know, everybody's talking about Obama and his daily events and so forth. But Romney is kicking butt out there, and Romney is staying on message, and Romney is rapid-firing back. And this is part and parcel of what has them a little bit discombobulated.

So here is a Romney ad staying on message Day One, Part 2.

ANNOUNCER: What would a Romney presidency be like? Day one: President Romney announces deficit reductions, ending the Obama era of big government, helping secure our kids' futures. President Romney stands up to China on trade and demands they play by the rules. President Romney begins repealing job-killing regulations that are costing the economy billions. That's what a Romney presidency will be like.

ROMNEY: I'm Mitt Romney, and I approve this message.

Day One

RUSH: Now on CNN's Starting Point this morning, Christine Romans, the fill-in host, talked to Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz, who runs the Democrat National Committee. By the way, do you know Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz was scheduled to appear and make a speech after services at a Miami temple, a Jewish temple? And a member of the temple, a man by the name of Tate stood up and said (paraphrased), "I'm outta here. If you bring her in here to make some concocted political speech on Friday night, I'm outta here. I mean, I'm out!"

So they canceled her. A Miami temple canceled the appearance by Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz. When was the last time you heard of that happening? Normally that's the kind of stuff that happens to us. One of us is scheduled to go someplace, the left protests it, and whoever was scheduled to host it shuts it down. Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz was disinvited or uninvited, and this Tate guy... I forget his first name. Stanley? I'm not sure. Anyway, he persevered.

And this temple is very close to her district. It's in Miami but it's very close to her district. Anyway, she was on CNN's Starting Point this morning and Christine Romans said, "I want to start with this attack on Romney and Bain Capital. A lot of people, Debbie, are seeing this as an attempt to disqualify Romney in battleground states, so the lunch-bucket Democrats have somebody to blame for their factories closing. The White House said this is their big strategy: Go after Bain; go after Romney. Will it play in those battleground states, and if it doesn't, what's Plan B?"

Day One, Part Two

SCHULTZ: It's not strategy! What it is is that Mitt Romney has made his record at Bain Capital his experience in the private sector -- which is almost exclusively at Bain Capital -- the central premise to American voters, uh, that ... that they should elect him president. There are thousands of workers who he laid off, uh, companies that they deliberately forced into bankruptcies, and Mitt Romney and his partners run -- made hundreds of millions of dollars.

RUSH: "Deliberately forced into bankruptcy."

So they're doubling down on Bain.

Whether it's working or not, they are going to double down on Bain.

And Romney's ads are entirely positive. And, by the way, remember all these calls against negative ads? "Gotta stop all the negative ads!" Well, Romney's out there running positive ads, and the media is still dissing his ads. The media is still ripping Romney's ads. The media is still criticizing Romney for his ads even though they're the essence of positive. So Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz says there basically is no Plan B. "We're going after Bain, we're going after Romney, and nothing gonna change." So Christine Romans says, "Well, why is it not hypocrisy for the president to take campaign donations from private equity when he's attacking private equity, making that an essential part of his campaign?"

SCHULTZ: Accepting a contribution from a particular person involved in venture capital and criticizing Mitt Romney -- who has made his record as a venture capitalist at Bain the central focus of his credibility and his qualification for being president -- are completely different things! So Mitt Romney, in the way that he ran Bain Capital -- the companies that he deliberately drove into bankruptcy, the creditors that he left with less than pennies on the dollar in return, and the thousands and thousands of people who he left on the unemployment lines while making hundreds of millions of dollars of -- in profits for himself and his partners -- is an appropriate examination for a man who is saying that this is the reason we should elect him president.

Who contributes to Barack Obama --

RUSH: Stop it! I feel like I'm I listening to Hillary. I can't stand it. It's nothing but... It's just poppycock. It's just lies. It's all lies. It's all absurd. I tell you what I'm gonna do. When we come back at the top of the hour, we'll do Marc Thiessen. Washington Post headline: "Forget Bain -- Obama's Public-Equity Record is the Real Scandal." And it's a list of all and every one of Obama's abject failures -- bailing out companies, green energy sector -- using your money. Romney used his own. Obama is using your money, taxpayer money is got a dismal record.

You talk about bankruptcies and people losing their jobs?

Obama's the king of destroying companies!

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: The fact of the matter is Bain Capital was trying to keep these companies out of bankruptcy, and they were asked in to save these companies. These were not takeovers. This woman doesn't have the slightest idea what she's talking about.

Romney's probable presence at the top of the ticket is alreadyhurting Mourdock in Indiana. There'll be others.

Ideally we need a guy at the top who can attract more than 22% of the Republican base.

Mitt just doesn't have the right stuff.

Try thinking about HOW America got screwed (HINT: ROMNEY)

Obama the Traitor and undocumented Tyrant
is ONLY pRes_ _ent because Mitt Romney attacked
Gov. Palin on the EVE of Election 2008.
Has Romney apologized for this atrocity?

FLASHBACK:

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.

Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

I can’t wait for Day One.

Can we just speak the truth? Obama is an economic illiterate - a Harvard-educated affirmative action economic illiterate. The sooner we can get him out of power, the sooner our economy can start the recovery.

That's not measurable yet as far as Romney's effect on that race. Mourdock is not yet a household name in Indiana...that's why it is tied. I expect he will do fine...especially if people on here and elsewhere who waste time just being bitter about Romney would instead spend their time doing something positive for other candidates worth getting excited about like Mourdock and just ignore Romney one way or the other.

One of the more foolish things to do is to ignore the top of the ticket and focus only on the bottom.

When Goldwater went down, so did a whole big bunch of other Republicans.

Running a candidate for President who is a natural born loser is simply stupid,.

Romney is an extreme liberal pretending to be a moderate or, at times, a conservative. A pretender will never get my vote. I vote for honesty, if honesty is not there, I don’t vote (that old conviction thingy hounds me day and night).

So, my choices are between a socialist/communist and another socialist who doesn’t have the ability or brains to realize that he is a member of a cult. Gee, choices, choices ... not my call.

Seems to be a lot of energy expended on my one vote ... sorry, my mind is made up. Let the chips fall were they may. If Obama wins, blame my one vote.

My convictions stand ...

To clarify, I will be voting for everything except for President. Polling machines don’t allow write in votes ... you must go to paper ballot. I will not go the write in option knowing that my vote will mean nothing.
