Milquetoast Mitt (Mark Steyn)
National Review Online ^ | August 11, 2012 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 08/10/2012 11:56:45 PM PDT by neverdem

The other day, I passed a Republican-party county office here in my home state, its window attractively emblazoned with placards declaring “Believe in America. Romney 2012” and “New Hampshire Believes. Romney 2012.” There’s not a lot of evidence for the latter proposition, but I’m certainly willing to believe that Romney believes that New Hampshire believes. An hour or two later, I chanced to be passing a television set just as the station went to break. The words “WE BELIEVE” appeared on the screen, followed by youthful hands raised to a clear blue sky at the dawn of a new day, shafts of sunlight gleaming through ears of corn, a puppy gamboling across a meadow, a kitten playfully pawing, happy green-T-shirted volunteers of many races unloading a recycling carton . . . and I thought, despite myself, “Well, say what you like, but the reassuring vapidity of the Romney campaign is at least getting more professional.” At the end, in the spot where the off-screen voice is supposed to say...

--snip--

Obama has spent America’s future, and left no more trace than if he and his high-school “choom gang” had wheeled a barrow of 5 trillion in large notes behind the gym and used them for rolling paper...

--snip--

Obama is the first president in history to create more disabled people than workers. He is the biggest creator of disabled people on the planet. He has disabled more people than the Japanese tsunami. More Americans have been disabled by Obama than have been given cancer by Mitt Romney. “Ask yourself, ‘Are you more disabled now than you were four years ago?’ Obama 2012.” Followed by the wheelchair logo with the Obama “O” where the wheel should be. In the Democrats’ Dependistan, the wheelchair ramp is downhill all the way...

I am bothered that Romney’s insipid message does not rise to the challenge this nation faces. Maybe the milquetoast pantywaist candy-assed soft-focus “Believe in America” shtick will prove sufficient under a relentless barrage of nakedly thuggish attack ads designed to Barry Goldwater the guy. But John Podhoretz, editor of Commentary, thinks not: “This is a race he should be able to win,” he wrote, “so if he loses, it won’t be because Obama won it. It will be because he lost it.”

"OMG!!11!!!WHY DOES MARK STEYN SUPPORT OBAMA?!?"

Unless you’re a white middle class disabled veteran. No Social Security Disability for you! Get back to work to support these poor “ethnic” 20-somethings with their neck braces and canes that you see loading up their shopping carts with steaks, Bud Light, name-brand groceries, electronics and designer clothes & shoes.

Well.... you got two choices..

1) the inventor of Romney-care...
or
2) the inventor of Obama-care..

** plus both are Union Stooges... drones in the collective..

The real choice is a totally controlled Congress by republicans..
They can force him to pass bills he don’t really want to pass..
And when he selects liberals for the Supreme Court they can fail to pass them..
Especially of the republicans can get 60 Senate members..

No. He is bored.

He wants some razzle dazzle like lots of people and haven’t received his fix the past two weeks.

Normal ebb and flow. Two weeks ago it was Romney is kicking butt. Now it’s OMG he wants to lose.

That is why the VP announcement came “shockingly” when the Olympics ends.

Unfortunately, Mark has a point. This late in the race, with three and a half years of disastrous economic conditions, incompetent leadership, economically-ignorant policymaking, and the worst kind of crony politics, plus the Republican nomination all but sewn up months ago, Romney is still polling within a few points of the Zer0. Romney is making next to no headway. There’s a noticeable streak of the allegedly-Republican base that doesn’t support him and won’t vote for him, and plenty of negative press coverage that he does nothing to refute. Two months is a long time in politics, but not that long. Even with the selection of Ryan, I just can’t see Romney’s campaign taking off strongly enough to carry him to victory in the election.

The more I learn about Ubama and the history of slimy campaigns of total destruction he and his thugs have run against every candidate he ever faced, I have begun to figure out, I think, why Mittens was the selection of the GOPe. The GOPe figured Mittens was the only moneyed candidate who was guaranteed clean enough to leave Ubama and his dirt-digging thugs playing with themselves.

The fact is, had the GOP selected anybody else it is certain that the Ubama/Democrat dirt machine would have come up with some scandal or another, real or rumored. If the candidate ever threw up on a cops shoes in a Taco Bell, or did a line off somebody’s nipple, or rode around in a van with his best buddy where they gave each other wine enemas and conned their way into college frat houses to crash, the Ubama thugs would come up with the video and destroy the GOP candidate.

Maybe the GOPe was so scared to death that they simply didn’t trust anybody else to be as clean as Mittens?

Extremely unlikely outcome, unless it includes the White House.

Remember, most of the voters are sheeple. The notion of divided government eludes your average sheepperson. Your average sheepperson doesn't have a clue. Your average sheepperson votes Democrat or Republican, not split-ticket.

And, most important, it's the top of the ticket that generates the enthusiasm. If the top of the ticket wins big, the rest of the picture will fall into place. If not, then not. That's how the cookie crumbles in the US of A.

That means you have to generate maximum enthusiasm for the top of the ticket. Unless you are a traitor.

I figure you meant if. It's not impossible, but it won't be easy. It means keeping all the seats we now have, including open seats in Arizona, Texas and Maine, which could be problematic in Maine's case, plus picking up 13 new seats from the rats. While the Tea Party did very well in Maine in 2010, the former governor Angus King, who is still very popular according to the MSM, is running as an independent.

Come on, guys. That'll never stop the Chicago Boys. They'll just make stuff up or pull skanky, "that's the same as...." syllogisms that stink and are provably slimy, but they'll go on doing it ..... because stuff sticks, whether it's true or not.

Alinskyites are perfectly happy running campaigns that are 100% provably black propaganda. They just don't care.

Remember Jim McDougal's saying how he could expose Bill and Hillary Clinton faster than they could lie about it? He was wrong. He's dead, and they are mighty in the land, and evilly prosperous.

Remember as well Robert Caro's recounting of how LBJ ordered a smear campaign rumor in his first Texas senatorial campaign (the one where he burned down the courthouse afterward) against Coke Stevens, telling his aides to put it about, that Coke was a pederast. That's the kind of cleverness we're dealing with here.

I agree. This is not the same country it was in 1980. Demographics is everything and this country has increasingly become made up by more and more people would vote for a 3 legged, one eyed dog, as long as it was a Democrat and no matter how bad things are.

Yep. Time to bail. No point in wasting your vote with Romney when you can vote for someone who believes in the same things you do.

Remember that carnival game - three card monte? The reason the GOP nominated Mittens was to make sure no matter what, we lose. The pea isn’t under any of the choices. They don’t want to win - just like when McCain suspended his campaign when he was actually pulling ahead late.

People: Face it, Romney is the candidate. I’m tired of hearing “Mittens” or that someone isn’t voting for Romney because there are better candidates out there. I’m not a huge Romney fan but, for crying out loud, he’s light years ahead of the socialist, arrogant, ignorant asshole in the WH. At least Romney doesn’t hate this country as Obama surely does.
There may be no hope left for this country in the long term; time will tell but I think that we all agree that if Obama is re-elected, the country’s demise is assured. If Obama somehow can bullshit his way into another four years, I will personally start a movement to have PA secede from the US as all patriots should do wherever they are. Don’t give up; at least Romney will listen to us, which is a far cry from where we are presently.
One glimmer of hope: Historically, incumbents who poll under 50% lose elections because the undecideds break for the challenger. Remember 1980.

I’m not crazy about Mitt and I fully understand the position of those conservatives who will not vote for him but I believe Mitt WANTS the job of POTUS and he sees it up for grabs. He KNOWS the gig is his to lose. Consequently, after the convention, I fully expect him to start beating Obozo bloody, night and day 24/7 with Obozo’s own image and words.

Steyn nails it. The Romney campaign has been timid and inept and is using too many of the McCain crowd who were responsible for putting Obama in the White House the first time. I agree with Steyn... a second Obama term will mean not only economic disaster, but will move this country into a socialist if not Marxist state. Obama has telegraphed his intention for the government to take over even more of the economy. The auto industry is government run, Obamacare will secure government takeover of health care and I'm sure the banking industry is ripe for a government takeover.

I fear even worse in a second Obama term. Obama is quite willing to trash the Constitution and rule by decree while Congress and the GOP court eunuchs sit idly by. In second term he could become a virtual dictator little different than Caesar Chavez. November 6, 2012 could well be our last free election if Obama is reelected.

Thank you. I would vote for the Romney/Ryan ticket if I had absolute assurances that Myth would resign one second after taking the oath of office. This ticket is at least as bottom-heavy as the McCain/Palin ticket.

Just like in 2008, I'm skeptical that the VP would have any influence on the POTUS if elected. It's just not the nature of the job. It won't be a co-Presidency by any means. While this probably makes sense for Ryan's career long-term, he'd probably have more influence as the de facto leader of economic conservatism in the House.

The difference is that Romneycare was constitutional under the 10th amendment and should actually be called MAssholecare as it’s what his constituents in Mass demanded.

The states can be laboratory’s of legislation and may show us success or failure.

Romneycare is a mislabeling of Massachusetts healthcare program. He did not design it, he just saw over what Teddy Kennedy,John Kerry, Barney Frank and Massholes demanded in their state.

The Federal Government had no right to give us Obamacare at the federal level and the larger portion of Americans were against it

I think it is unfair to equate Romney to Obama on this matter.

Romney only responded to his constituents.
Obama gave his the finger.

Part of why Romney isn’t getting traction is that he is not even the nominee at this point.
He doesn’t have the delegates yet.
He is the presumptive nominee, and he still has Obama worried.

Wait until the convention in a couple of weeks and you will see his campaign solidify.

MARK STEYN's telling the truth. Obama's team is trying to make him out to be the 'John Kerry' of the race. A nice guy who's totally out of touch with real Americans. They are winning at that... Romney can start out by getting in front of a camera and recording himself talking. Half the time when he's saying 'yes' he's nodding his head 'no'. He needs to 'get with the reality of this race'. Dems want him perceived as an ineffectiual nice guy who won't be able to do crap. We've met the men who smile too much...

But in fact, Romney's a capable leader - he leads with teams and consensus - not threats and intimidation like democrats. Romney can keep us from falling off an economic cliff.... Obama can't.

Both men are too liberal for my tastes... but Romney has a chance of saving the country after an economic collapse.

The “Big Dig” was a comedy of P.T. Barnum proportions..
Exposing UNION corruption like a Mafia “Special” Olympics..
