Romney to give television interviews today
Politico ^ | 7/13/2012 | DYLAN BYERS

Posted on 07/13/2012 2:23:56 PM PDT by Palmetto Patriot

Mitt Romney will hold interviews today with ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News and CNN that will run this evening, sources tell POLITICO.

The network interviews, which will be taped later this afternoon, will air during the nightly news casts.

Jon Karl will interview Romney for ABC; Peter Alexander for NBC; and Jan Crawford for CBS. Jim Acosta will interview Romney for CNN.

Romney's tenure at Bain Capital, which was called into question again yesterday, and his vice presidential pick will almost certainly be topics of discussion.

They are hoping for a “Catie Curic” event again.

I can’t imagine the torture of having to endure 5 back to back interviews with these network “journalists”. One of the many reasons I’d never run for president even if I was in those circles. I’d prefer to be a behind-the-scenes operative.

Mitt, why do so many of “the very conservative voters in the U.S.” not like you? That should be one of the questions asked. Mitt could blow it with all of these interviews with the left, who will, always, be trying to tear him apart, now that Mitt is the final GOP choice for ‘12 POTUS. Mitt’s “putting his foot in his mouth” moments are painful, and they are not helping his cause, either.

Serious question here....Did Romney campaign with Romney? McCain was up for Republican Nominee in 2008 because he came in 2nd place in the 2000 primary. Romney is up for Republican nominee in 2012 because he was in second place at the 2008 primary. Santorum is our next nominee THANK GOD!!!!!! We just have to survive the next four or eight years......

This is what makes me think Mitt has a much better chance to win than McIgnoramus....Mitt is giving an interview in or near the same cycle as Obamugabe. Obamugabe’s ‘thunder’ from his asskiss-fest from Charlie Rose on SEE BS news will be forgotten as Mitt makes a media blitz.

By doing this, Mitt takes the oxygen away from Obamugabe’s media attention.

Nice.

They’re all loading up now, planning to shoot for an `I gotcha!’ moment so they can preen at their cocktail parties tomorrow night.

Television gerbalists are the scum-of-the-earth.

Anyone interested in reading a good fictional demonstration of how they operate, check out Tom Wolfe’s `Ambush at Ft. Bragg,’ one of several stories in his book `Hooking Up.’ It may be on-line, a story of how a `Dateline’-type crew ambushed three Army Rangers.

We’ve seen some recent instances of the disgusting partisan bias they exhibit: editing, quoting out of context, slanting, emphasis, etc.

And they have the temerity to claim impartiality like a badge of honor, as if they were 4th Estate priests, professionals subject to rules of responsibility, FR’s bitch, Demo-political hack Dan Rather even still.

Their fathers were hamsters and their mothers smelled of Ripple wine, I shake my naughty bits in the faces of their programming directors, ha ha, ho ho.

Yeah, those are much more important than the Obama campaign lying. Axelrod is incapable of that.

Good point!

Unlike McCain, who did everything but campaign for Obama, Romney better be 100% ready to counter all the thuggish Chicago tactics or he won't win.

NBC: “Mitt. We’ll call you Mitt...we know Mitt rhymes with Nitt.. Which is short for Nittany Lions. Mr Romney, did you, in fact, rape children with Sandusky...? Also is it true you eat black children after you murder them?... Okay coming up next, Michelle Obama bought a new belt today.. We’ll look at it!”

Romney’s reply to Obama’s scurrilous charges regarding management of Bain was good but didn’t go far enough. He should have invited Obama to have OBAMA’s SEC open an investigation to get to the bottom of these charges right away. “Let’s clear this up as soon as possible. I’m calling on President Obama to have the SEC open an investigation and resolve this issue immediately”.

Call his bluff now and Obama’s serial dishonesty will shortly be on display for all to see.

Given Obama’s minions basically caled him a felon, it is a good diea to speak up.

Not sure why referring to Hussein the Muslim as the foreigner in the Whitehouse is offlimits. Here are a few things that should ne on the table now tha Hussein has called Mitt a felon

The idea that the long form was forged
The idea that Hussein sid he was from Kenya to get foreign funding while at university
Constantly refer to him as either a socialist or a Marxist
Suggest, forcefully, that Obama hates his own country (repeat this in a serious and fearful tone, not as a smear)

The economy should be enough but its not. Unless Mitt is ready to do the bove (or have his VP do it, this election is over). When you say the gloves are off the aboveis what it must mean

Good Luck

I would also be inclined to have a line of attack that goes something like this, “He has the nerve to call me a felon when he is holding the office of the Presidency under false pretenses. He is a foreign occupant of the white house and the last time I checked that is not even constitutional. Every American who loves their country should be absolutely angered that a man who hates the country he leads is the occupant of the highest office in the land. We need to rectify this, this year!”

Incidentally, if he’s not willing to go down this “tough” road (Maybe not exactly as I suggest but similar concepts) then there is still time to remove your name from the ballot before the convention

Mitt needs to stop getting bogged down defending himself and go on the offense, attacking Obama constantly. Put the Kenyan into defense mode. God knows, there’s plenty of ammo. Enough ammo to last into November.

or how about this:

Mr Obama, as a newly elected senator (in violation of senate rules) why did you go to Kenya and campaign for Odinga who lost the election, went on a rampage and killed innocent people by burning them in Christian churches during service and mowing them down with machine guns as they ran ?

and How did you aquire the wealth you now posess having never done anything other than be a "Community Organizer" just how does a "Community Organizer" aquire wealth, Mr Obama ?

If we're fortunate, Santorum will not be the next nominee no matter how much he craves it.

In light of the Roberts' Court's recent decisions, this is even truer than during the primary season: any man who would confirm the woman Obama chose to be his first Supreme Court appointment does not deserve the opportunity to be the GOP nominee or running mate.

NO Santorum. NO WAY. NO HOW.

He can start by Picking a Conservative for VP or I am afraid he is going to Put republican Voters to sleep. Hey Mitt you are a Dud,Like MCCain,Take a Hint from his Campaign and Pick a Rand Paul Or Jim Demint or Alan West to light a Fire Under Conservatives or else you will Lose. When left wing loons are given a Choice between a real Marxist like Obama and a Moderate Pretender Like Romney they will ALWAYS go with the Real Thing. So Mitt dont take the Conservative Voter,Reject the They have to Vote for me,Where else are they going to go Philosophy,reach out to the Conservative Voters and You MIGHT have a Chance,A slim one.

Oh brother. You liberal Republicans are incredible. You just don’t like the fact that Santorum is 100 percent conservative. You like having liberal Republicans like McCain and Romney. No wonder you are so giddy about this election....it could not have been better for you.

Really? You get that i’m a liberal Republican from that?

Here’s a nice fact for you to chew on. In 2007, Rick Santorum, a two-term Senator, lost 59% — 41%. Chew over that for a minute. He lost by 18 points... as a two term incumbent!!

And you think this guy could win a national election??

Yes I do because it was a Democratic year 2006 and 2008....things change.

You are correct sir.

Santorum didn’t lose because he was too conservative. He lost when conservatives realized that he was a fraud as a conservative. He gave great speeches but his record was less than conservative. He won his early elections when he was known (or thought) to be a hard core conservative. He lost when it was found to be just an act.

Did you know that he never supported a pro life senate candidate in 12 years in the Senate? Pretty odd for a Mr Pro Life poster boy, don’t you think? On gun issues, he only voted corrected 2 out of 3 votes. 64% is a failing grade, not something to brag about.

I’m sorry, but if you lose (as a two-term incumbent) by 18 points, its not because “it was a democrat year”. Its because the people of your home state REALLY did not like you.

And I’ll say it again: You really think a guy who got bounced that badly by the constituency who knew him best has even the ghost of a prayer in a national election? I’ll have a little of what you’re having.....
