Skip to comments.Romney Aide to Take On Bigger Role in Campaign (Palin-hater Madden to replace Etch-A-Sketch Eric)
Posted on 07/06/2012 5:17:21 PM PDT by jimbo123
Kevin Madden, a Republican communications expert with long ties to Mitt Romney, will become a more frequent and visible spokesman for the presidential campaign, a source close to the decision said on Friday.
The increased responsibilities for Mr. Madden came in the wake of criticism from nervous Republicans about Mr. Romneys campaign team. The Wall Street Journal said in an editorial that the campaign looks confused in addition to being politically dumb.

and I thought it couldn’t get any worse.
This does not inspire confidence. I think I’ll cast a write-in vote for Joe Arpaio.
Mitt doubles down on stupid yet again.
Just look at the character of the people that mitt surrounds himself with. These people are scumbags. This guy is no Karen Hughes.
It remains to be seen how the new guy does, but let’s hope he doesn’t screw up as badly as Eric Fehrnstrom. The Etch-a-Sketch thing was bad enough, but when he directly contradicted his boss in public on the largest issue of that day, he needed to be gone instantly.
Fehrnstrom has trouble remembering who’s the boss.
What a damn disaster
And we are stuck with this bozo and his aides
Problem is even if he gets rid of this next loser for somebody decent the SOBs are very vindictive and would probably go to the MSM with all kinds of BS
For those who just walked into the room, Eric Fehrnstrom is the fool who said ObamaTax isn’t a tax, but a penalty, at the same time Romney was starting to get traction with his message it’s a tax, not a penalty. He completely defocused one of the few messages Romney was getting clarity on. Because of Fehrnstrom, the media was able to gleefully jump on what they call a flip-flop.
Traitor Kevin Madden: Responsible for the anonymous attacks aired on FoxNews tonight
One week prior to the general election, former Romney spokesman Kevin Madden took to the airwaves (on CNN) and defamed Sarah Palin, setting off a media storm over an alleged fight between Team McCain and Team Palin. They were the very early opening salvos in the battle for the party. Fox News expanded on off-the-record anti-Palin comments tonight. Was traitor Kevin Madden for those comments?
Romney is looking more and more like a fall guy .
Romney Supporters Trashing Palin
It looks like there might be some truth to those rumors former Mitt Romney supporters are already trying to clear Sarah Palin from the GOP presidential deck to make room for their man Mitt in 2012.
Former Romney Spokesman Kevin Madden was particularly harsh on Palin in an interview on CNN. His criticism of Palin is especially noteworthy because we’re only days from the election.
In a spot with Campbell Brown Madden said Palin’s wardrobe flap showed how “unseasoned” Palin is.
AND YET.... they're all at least 10,000 times BETTER than the Satanic slime currently degrading the Oval office.... Before you start thinking about "write-in" votes or staying home on election day, please consider the alternatives. I had a bumper sticker that I never put on my bumper after 911 because it was just tooooo harsh for the spot the country was in but I'll use it on Nov 7th if we lose because the right buckled. The sticker said: "Whining liberals of America..... THIS IS YOUR FAULT!"
I don't like Mittens. But I hate the alternative far far more.
RedState: Romney Surrogates Sabotaging Sarah Palin?
When I was in St. Paul for the Republican Convention, more than a dozen people told me acolytes of Mitt Romney were feeding all the stories to the media portraying Palin in a negative light.
In fact, I heard that one of the biggest pushers of anti-Palin stories, including encouraging reporters to pursue the “Trooper-gate” story was Romney spokesman Kevin Madden.
Well, the election IS in the Fall [rimshot]...
For Romney to bring back this cowardly piece of dog excrement is a disgrace.
Thanks for the links. This madden pig will really a piece of work. God help us.
Ass Clown Romney is making it very difficult for me to keep from saying what I think of him.
And I have been trying to keep it to myself since FR seems to be Romney Country lately.
Red State and other reporters accuse Romney staffers, including Kevin Madden (former Romney press-man) of pushing reporters into Troopergate stories
I think I am beginning to see a pattern...
I’ll just wait and see. Perhaps he can effectively attack 0bama the way he attacked Palin. I don’t care about his perception of Palin. I care more about whether he’s an effective staff or not. With his comments on etch-a-sketch and Obamacare, Eric F is not.
Given Mittens bad choices so far we need to take him out at the convention.
Madden is a cowardly misogynist piece of dog feces who only smears conservatives.
Pray that will happen.
‘Just another reason to dislike this RINO god.
Yes how dare someone questions St Sarah, the quitter from Alaska..
Check this nonsense out.
Even more reason why I'll never vote for Team Romney.
We all knew it then...this just confirms it.
This guy has to make up for a 10 million voter difference between Republican and Democrat candidates in 2008.
Instead, he's working himself into a deep dive that keeps up with Obama all the way down.
I think it's a lack of fire in the belly.
He should step aside now.
Sarah Palin has done far more for Conservatism than Romney ever has or will.
So STUFF IT!
At least he completed his term as Governor.. So you stuff it..
Can anybody trace that church fire to Madden or someone close to him?
Doing my best to dispell such beliefs ~ maybe i should double-down.
We don’t need your kind around here.
Then have me banned you idiot.. I dare you...
Then, Romney pulls this Mittbot up from the bottom of the barrel for another go at it?
You people have no shame.
I’m so frakin scared..
You do not KNOW that it was Madden. The article says as much.
Romney promotes abject backstabbing scumbags like this, and then actually WANTS my vote? Madden can go burn in hell, where he belongs, for his scurrilous hit-job on Palin. God, I hate these people with a fire-hot passion.
That Mr. RomneyCARE is restoring his prime misogynist saboteur who threw
the election to Obama in 2008
heralds that Mr. RomneyCARE remains nothing but untrustworthy (again).
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."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins 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 Romneys 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 Wallaces husband."
Yes Mitt completed his term as gov, and did such a wonderful job for the people of MA. /s
This is the last straw for the GOPe.
They micturate in women and conservatives faces and call it 'rain'.
I am already committed to never voting for Mittens, so it doesn’t matter to me that he brings aboard this scumbag Madden. Still, I was hoping for a VP pick that could at least keep me interested in following the race. With Madden in Romney’s face, the VP pick will likely end up being some milquetoast squish like Romney.
Pray for America.
Actually, Mr. RomneyCARE, who failed the Mass. economy,
FLED early, to avoid the mess he made from RomneyCARE
and to bring in millions of illegal aliens.
The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.
The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.
- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006
"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,
[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006
Naw, that's not what you are ~ you are a whiner, or maybe a hootany glootany fron-non, or possibly an alien from outerspace ~ so you are not scared.
You should be ~ your master has misled you. He knows he's losing and your vote for him will put Obama in office again.
