Rush on Romney: "This is not the McCain campaign," says McC would denounce "birther" Trump (Vanity)

At 12:20 EST Rush applauds Willard's refusal to cave to MSM demands all day yesterday to throw Trump under the bus over Trumps "birther" statements, which Rush says McCain would have done.

McCain was a self-righteous (holier-than-thou) SOB. Fortunately, Romney understands something about not stabbing your allies in the back.

And the media has also demanded that Romney throw Rush under the bus too, which he has not.

Another legitimate difference between Romney and the marxist_occupierWH.

ping to Rush applauding Willard refusing to denounce Trump...

Maybe Palin will make a formal endorsement of Willard, as one of her big beefs about the McCain campaign was suppression of attempts to vet Barry.

You and Rush BOTH have it backwards.

First, Mr. RomneyCARE should have HELPED Mr Trump
on this issue, but he was quiet, meek, cowardly, as always.

Second, and as to backstabbing, NOBODY did it better than Mr. RomneyCARE
and his Legion of Backstabbers.

Romney wants to win.

You want to spout crazy nonsense and see Romney lose.

Romney stood up to the leftist demands. That is more than the warrior McCain ever did.

Rush is right. You are not.

Great. So Romney is better than McCain on one issue that maybe 5% of the country cares about, but he’s even worse than McCain on dozens of issues that pluralities in the country care about.

I expect she will and that this endorsement will come in Tampa.

Sarah is running her own show and it has its own agenda.

Today Willard is killing Barry in the polls nationally and in key swing states with significant improvement while Barry's economy is in free-fall along with the stock market.

Willard is a shameless chameleon and has no interest in pushing any former progressive positions now that his next goal will be getting reelected in 2016.

Willard, as a Harvard MBA in addition to the law degree, knows that ONLY conservative market-driven policies and court appointments will turn the economy around and enable his reelection, IMO.

Obama goes after Trump in fundraising e-mail.

Think about this: Today, our opponent is facing the same fundraising deadline we are.

But the people I'm counting on at this crucial moment could not be more different.

He's relying on high-powered special-interest groups and a TV personality who's spent the last week questioning where I was born.

Our campaign is built by millions of ordinary Americans chipping in what they can, when they can.

Will you help out before midnight? Make a donation of $3 or more right now:

Thank you, as always.

Barack

Romney wants to be a success. An economic recovery is the one and only thing that will make Romney's Presidency a success. Mitt will do what he can to bring about an economic recovery.

Hey Barry, the only reason there are people questioning where you were born is because of the documented fraud. Sign a release statement to the State of Hawaii and to the colleges you attended - all this will go away when you become transparent!!!

Nonsense. Romney is not worse than McCain on immigration, global warming, or campaign finance for starters.

McCain was leftist on many things and weak on everything else.

I am happy Willard is taking the lead but I still think there will be a trumped up ( no pun intended) emergency to keep Obamamohamed in power. One thing we all learned from Marxist regimes is they don’t go quitly into the night. JMHO!

It is NOT about a "broken record".

IT IS ABOUT A BAD RECORD - ROMNEY's RECORD.

1) ROMNEYCARE
2) ROMNEY JUDGES
3) ROMNEY LYING and DNC PANDERING
4) ROMNEY'S ATTACKS ON CONSERVATIVES
5) ROMNEY's WEAKNESS and PROTECTION of all things DNC.

Mitt Romney wins much coveted Jimmy Carter endorsement

Gore Praises Romney's 'Climate Protection Plan'

Carville(D):
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy
."

Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."

Romney seems to be better on business than McCain.

McCain was wishy-washy when it came to business, tax policy.

And I don't see Romney doing quacked-out stuff like huddling with Feingold to do campaign finance.

I hope Romney has his life insurance paid up.

There is cause to worry about what the GOP establishment will do if he deviates too much from the script and refuses to take a dive.

We could have an actual election.

And I don't see Romney doing quacked-out stuff like huddling with Feingold to do campaign finance.

As with most other issues, Romney's record on this isue is...complex.

While Romney called for the repeal of McCain-Feingold in 2007, as Ramesh Ponnuru noted, his previous record has been very bad on this issue. Ponnuru even stated,

"Romney, it turns out, has–surprise, surprise–been on both sides of campaign-finance reform. In his 1994 race, Romney came out for banning political action committees, limiting spending on federal races (something the Supreme Court has not allowed), and opposed allowing larger contributions. All told, those positions place him to the left of McCain-Feingold, which doubled the allowable size of individual donations to candidates. In his 2002 race, he took the position that campaign contributions should be taxed at a 10 percent race, with the proceeds going to public funding of all campaigns."

Once again, with CFR we see an issue where Romney started tacking to the right as just about the same time that he was gearing up to run for President in the GOP primaries. One wonders whether, if elected, this will be another area where the Etch-a-sketch will shaken once he's safely ensconced in office?

McCain was a total idiot as far as running a campaign and he surrounded himself with idiots including his idiot daughter. Of course, Obama is praising the loser McCain and wants his current opponent to run the same kind of campaign.

My sense is that McCain has never run a competitive race in his life, apart from going up against Bush in 2000 in the primaries and Obama in 2008. As a GOP senatorial candidate, his war hero record won his primary races, and as long as the electorate was majority Republican, he was a lock. Romney - on the other hand - has run only competitive races. His races in MA have been really difficult, given that he does represent the GOP, whereas the electorate is overwhelmingly liberal. He went up against McCain in 2008 with a liberal/moderate record established by his races in MA, as contrasted against McCain's war hero record. It's a miracle he was the runner-up. I'm still surprised that he won the GOP nomination this time around, given the amount of flak that came his way. He's not my candidate of choice, but he's certainly someone who doesn't shrink from a challenge, whether in the business or political world.

You're right, he only about the same as McCain on those three issues. It's just the other issues that he's worse than McCain, like abortion, gun rights, the gay agenda, taxation, health care....
