O’Reilly: Is he a socialist?

Romney: You know, I prefer to use the term that he’s just over his head.

O’Reilly: Yeah, but you got to look at his economic plan. An economic plan that’s top down, federal leadership, getting us out of the recession--- he spent trillions of dollars on that. And people say, Listen, the guy’s a socialist — it’s class warfare that’s what he’s gonna wage against you if you get the nomination: You’re a rich guy, you’re out of touch. Is he a socialist?

A politician from the People’s Republic of Massachusetts wouldn’t know socialism on a bet. After all, it’s a normal political idea there.

Romney probably wouldn’t even call Castro a socialist.

Can anyone else see Romney saying... there is nothing to fear from another Obama term?

I can.

No Thanks Romney, even McCain looked conservative in comparision to you.

I'm sorry to say but it looks like Romney IS the only candidate I can stand, and I can barely stand him. Maybe he will “evolve” in office. The others in the race have all let me down as presidential material. Ann Coulter can't be completely wrong, can she?

This WEASEL FLIP SLICK WILLARD RINO ROMNEY DOESN'T HAVE THE BALLS to fight communists.

He is a coward from a family of military service avoiding cowards, a cultist, and a degenerate liar.

So afraid of being branded MCCARTHYITES, these country club establishment glad handing sons of bitch WASHINGTONIANS running the RNC.

PAYBACK IS COMING

"You are seeing today an all out attempt to marshal the forces of the opposition, using not merely the communists, or their fellow travelers-the deluded liberals, the eggheads, and some of my good friends in both the Democratic and Republican Parties who can become heros over night in the eyes of the left-wing press if they will just join with the jackal pack"

Mitt doesn’t want to give the game away. If he admits Obama is a ‘socialist’, what does that say about him?

Yup. Takes one to KNOW one.

Santorum.

Romney is a “no” from the get-go, and Gingrich is self-destructing. But then again those Iowans have a way of screwing us all up.

While I am not a Romney fan, your title is not a fair description. He did not say he isn’t a Socialist.

However, our side is sunk if we don’t punch hard; which means the country, idiots and all, is sunk unless we punch hard.

He’s too weak to even say “socialist”!
McLame was to weak to say “Hussein”.

Democrat-Lite is nowhere near what voters are seeking. Ann Coulter, Karl Rove and the National Review are inadvertently attempting to give Obama a second term. So much for the "supposed" intellectuals. Sunday shows and fake news interviews have become nothing more than blatant liberal campaigning for the "preferred" candidate.

I’ve never liked Romney. When the government-controlled death panels (state-run healthcare) debate raged, Romney could have helped his career and won many conservative hearts by pointing to the failure of MA’s failed state-run medical system. Instead, he said they were both good ideas.

When McCain and Hackaberry colluded to bump Romney out of the primaries, I felt just a wee bit sorry for Romney.

Now every time he opens his mouth, I dislike him more and more. I don’t quite dislike him as much as I do McCain, but he’s working on it.

It pains me to agree with mittens, BO isn’t a socialist.

He’s a Marxist.

Mitt doesn’t want to call Obama a socialist because that would make Mitt a socialist also...which he is.

Mitt still can't answer a question but dances around it - just like the debates. What a big wuss - he doesn't want negative press - he wants to slide to home plate. He is the SAME as he described barry a big-government liberal Democrat.

NEWT - crush mitt once and for all!

Mittens is an idiot. Only Ann Coulter would think he’s Presidential material, much, much less a conservative.

This is a lot like when RINO Romney’s ideological soulmate, John McCain, said sweet things about Obama during the 2008 election.
