Quote from George Orwell's Animal Farm
Oh good God kill me now!
This would be funny if it weren’t so desperately sad.
The American Horndog sponsors a “global conference” ?
What are they going to discuss? How to take the United States from 7th to 50th in global competitiveness? We were #1 in Bush’s final year in office.
Looks like Romney really enjoyed Bill’s DNC speech, huh?
Listen Romney you dope, Bill Clinton has no pull with voters at all.
And I know Bill’s close friend and political adviser is supposedly going to vote for you but he might be the only one if you keep pulling this liberal, GEE LETS LOOK MODERATE, bullshit.
Seriously, does this man WANT to win? The damn economy is horrible and people are really hurting to pay for gas and groceries. And this is on his agenda the last two months?
He could go in there and tell them about Americn exceptionalsm and stick it to the NWO types. This appearance may not be a bad thing. Being conservative, I would speak if I were invited.
Romney is trying really hard to lose this election.
First Romney says there’s parts of ObamaCare he likes and now this? Is he trying to force us to stay home on 11/6?
Uhhhhh....how do we tell him this, short of staying away from the polls on election day?
Is there any word out on what he’s likely to say?
Why is it that RINO’s are always so ready to accept leftwing narratives and support leftwing things like CGI while they shu and attack conservatives and still want our votes?
Well, Romney isn’t. He is likely to go in there and accept their narrative.
Nice move by Glove! This is called “strategy”
If this isn’t a swift kick to Soetoro’s balls, I don’t know what is.
This cements the Clinton’s wanting Soetoro to lose.
Nothing good can come from this.
Romney COULD state conservatism plainly to the assembled statists....
.... but you and I don’t really expect him to.
He’s the RomneyCare(tm) guy at heart.
Please tell me again that you are 100 percent behind this turd. I just like hearing you talk about your candidate. I hear he made you President of his Fan Club...Congratulations! If this does not get you off Romney, nothing will. I can’t believe you haven’t been over here singing his praises yet. I suppose it is only a matter of time...Good Lord he is much worse than McCain.
I misread this, filling in the missing word “Warming” after “Global”, by force of habit.
Looking it over, and seeing the interminable roster of speakers willing to engage in this deepthink pile of manure,
I am not sure there’s too much to worry about regarding Romney’s participation.
These conferences begin and end nowhere, and all of them know it. But Romney will have to distinguish himself philosophically from the majority of these participants, if he doesn’t want to throw all of us into a collective tizzy.
I want Obama GONE..Vote for Romney
I’m going to need a gas mask when I enter the booth to vote for this guy.
I want Obama GONE..Vote for Romney
There the same person. You must not be paying attention.
I want Obama GONE..Vote for Romney
They are the same person. You must not be paying attention.
The man needs to fire his advisors and start listening to the people on the right who don’t like him. At least we’ll tell him the truth.
Other than love for his country, you are correct. But statism eventually destroys a military due the welfare state. And love is powerless in a cruel world.
The people complaining the loudest about where Romney chooses to speak probably never intended to vote for him anyway.
I know what — let’s make Bill Clinton’s endorsement seem really really important, so that people finally care that he’s supporting Obama. What the hell is Romney thinking?
Please stop spewing this MSM drivel and propaganda. He said no such thing. I watched the interview and below is from the MTP transcript. Where the hell do you see anything about Obamacare or the parts that Romney "likes?"
GREGORY: Well, let me ask you about a couple of specific areas. On healthcare, you say that you would rescind the presidents healthcare plan on day one. Does that mean that youre prepared to say to Americans, young adults and those with pre-existing conditions, that they would no longer be guaranteed healthcare?
MR. ROMNEY: Well, of course not. I say we're going to replace Obamacare. And I'm replacing it with my own plan. And, you know, even in Massachusetts where I was governor, our plan there deals with pre-existing conditions and with young people. Everybody
GREGORY: So you'd keep that part of the federal plan?
MR. ROMNEY: Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform. Of course, there are a number of things that I like in healthcare reform that I'm going to put in place. One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage. Two is to assure that the marketplace allows for individuals to have policies that cover their-- their family up to whatever age they might like. I also want individuals to be able to buy insurance, health insurance, on their own as opposed to only being able to get it on a tax advantage basis through their company.
I’d love to see Obama lose but if the convention didn’t tell you this guy (Romney) is a sure loser I don’t know what will. He isn’t even willing to draw a difference between him and his opponent moreover calling him the Al Qaeda Sympathizer what he should be called. This is a disaster waiting to happen. I would love to be wrong, I hope I am, but sorry, I’m not wrong. 4 Conventions and still no one has heard who Obama really is.
Don't you pathetic "Anyone but Romney" shills ever get tired of being such predictable Obamabots?
Taking a quick look at the guest list, it would be stupid not to . . . .
Today, President Bill Clinton announced that President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney will participate in the eighth Annual Meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative joining world leaders in government, business, philanthropy, and civil society who gather each year to create and implement solutions to the worlds most pressing challenges. President Obama and Governor Romney will address separate sessions during the final day of the Annual Meeting to be held September 23-25 in New York City.
Im grateful that President Obama and Governor Romney are taking time to join leaders from all parts of society who choose to address our greatest global challenges through the Clinton Global Initiative, said President Clinton. CGI is built on the spirit of non-partisan, cross-sector collaborations that drive action and Im proud that, since we began in 2005, CGI members have made more than 2,100 commitments that are already improving the lives of 400 million people all over the world.
Not only is Romney not a conservative, but it's increasingly unclear to me whether he's any better than Obama. At least with Obama, Congressional Republicans have something of a backbone. Do you really think Boehner and McConnell will stand up to Romney?
Romney's now indicating that he'll support most of ObamaCare. Unbelievable!
As of this week I'm off the wagon. Romney lost me when he came out for ObamaCare Lite. What is this man thinking? I may yet hold my nose and vote for him, but I'm really worried that Boehner and McConnell will just roll over for Romney and allow him to be Obama Lite (whereas they're actually doing a pretty good job now of opposing Obama). Thinking in practical terms, would a Romney Presidency be any better than another Obama one? I'm honestly not sure -- so much for democracy.
I read the quote..all of it..He did not support most of it.
It's unbelievable because its not true.
He did not indicate he'll support most of Obamacare. He named two "reforms" that his plan has in common with Obamacare. There are literally hundreds of aspects of Obamacare, so agreeing with two of them is not that bad.
He's on the record as opposing the individual mandate and supporting tort reform, both of which make the two aspects he agrees with quite minor.
Oh come on guys and gals! This is a joke. Please. Somebody...
Sorry but the pre-existing conditions part only works with an individual mandate. He may hem and haw, but if he doesn’t do a mandate, you’ll have pure community rating and nobody will be able to afford insurance. I might give the benefit of the doubt to a lifetime conservative, but Mitt’s record in Massachusetts is pretty dubious here.
Naps..I believe you are wrong..I beg you to reconsider..for our nation’s sake....for the sake of your children and my great grandchildren.
That's an awful lot of Koolaid. The problem is that the two reforms he supports happen to be major cost drivers. If he just supports them -- and no mandate -- then insurance companies will either jack rates through the roof or go out of business. If you think pure Community Rating works in a free market, I have a bridge to sell you.
This is what you get with a moderate.
It would serve as an incentive to buy insurance before you get sick.
And if somebody wants to insure their dead beat 28 year old child, that's their business.
In neither case did Romney mention anything about making these options price friendly or spreading the costs around.
I'm not drinking kool-aid, I just refuse to constantly assume the worst about Romney. That bothers some people around here.
According to some around here, there was no difference between Chris Christie and Jon Corzine or Christie Todd Whitman. He's not perfect, but he's a damn sight better than both of them. I'll hate Romney for the crap he does, not for the crap people tell me he's going to do.
“The three-day meeting will focus on designing for individual lives, our environments and the systems we rely on including food, an inclusive economy, and good governance.”
Thank goodness... for a minute there I thought ole’ Romney was going to go over to the other side./s
I'm losing patience with the concerned trolls operating in Obama's interests to suppress enthusiasm and GOP turnout.
Get a grip! Join reality and work to defeat Obama.
Losing patience....lol. You could not possibly be losing patience with people. That is ridiculous. It was CLEARLY stated that Romney is a liberal and guess what? It is truer than I even thought. I am not forcing Romney to do these liberal things.
So the contest is between a white Obama and a black Obama...
I am voting for the jerk but I can’t stand a thing he does. He is so far from our principles on this site that it is not even recognizable. He clearly is the wrong candidate for us.
