WELL DONE, MITT! As Governor Of Mass, Romney Banned The Assault Weapon Used In The Colorado Massacre
Business Insider ^ | Jul. 23, 2012, 10:26 AM | Henry Blodget

Posted on 07/29/2012 3:21:27 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

In 2004, as Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney banned the sale of assault weapons like the one used to spray 50-60 bullets a minute in the Colorado massacre.

On FOX News, Romney explained his position as follows:

"I believe the people should have the right to bear arms, but I don’t believe that we have to have assault weapons as part of our personal arsenal."

That seems like a perfectly reasonable position, no?

(Seriously: Do we really need to be able to buy and own these things? Is that really in the best interests of our society? Really?)

Unfortunately, in the intervening years, Romney has flip-flopped and now supports the sale of assault weapons like the one used in the Colorado massacre.

But the families of those who were shot and killed in the theater can presumably take some comfort from the fact that Romney was against these guns before he was for them.

If there were even one tiny instance of racism in Romney’s history

As a member of Mormon Royalty since his family immigrated to America in 1842 to personally serve Joseph Smith, the Romney's have never mixed in the world outside of the pure white Mormon life except for what was necessary for business at the highest, whitest level, or politics at the highest, whitest level, or education at the highest, whitest level,Priest, missionary, and Bishop, Mitt Romney, himself a son of a Bishop would have been teaching that blacks were inferior to whites for many years before the 1978 revelation from God, that blacks were now OK.

Whatever racism Mitt Romney was teaching as a religious leader would only be known within his religious cult, and they are known for being secretive.

Yes, many here are more anti-Romney than anti-Obama.

Obama talks of limiting some gun use in wake of Colorado massacre

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2910856/posts

President Obama has added his voice to the push for limits on Americans’ gun use in the wake the massacre last week at a movie theater in Colorado.

Obama, speaking Wednesday evening to the National Urban League, affirmed his belief in Americans’ right to own guns, but he singled out assault rifles as better suited for soldiers than civilians.

“I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms,” Obama said. “But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not on the streets of our cities.”


Also:

“Obama said he believes in the Second Amendment’s protection of gun rights and that hunting and shooting are part of a “cherished national tradition.”

After Bush 1 the Dems Ran Bill Clinton.
Then Al Gore
Then John Kerry
Then Barack Obama

Each more left and marxist than the one before

The GOP countered with Bob Dole
Then GWB
Then John McCain
Now Mitt Romney.

Likewise, each more liberal than the one before.

The trend unarguably shows both parties going further to the left with each passing election. The trend of GOP is putting up more libs is reinforced by the base voting for what they give us under threat of the crazy man the Dems run that year.

Now please explain in great detail when the miracle will happen. Please show us factually based evidence that the GOP can be saved when the trend is not your friend.

And most importantly, explain after all this time, with the FACTS above, why you ‘feel’ that ‘next time’ will abe one iota different.

The trend shows the GOP will running an open marxist in 2016. So why should I vote for a man with less conservative legislation to his record than Bill Clinton and expect ‘good things’ to happen?

Sadly the choice is very simple . It is between a Communist Party endorsed , Marxist mentored,Radical Halfrican & a Mormon milquetoast Zipless F*ck .

That’s it like or not. You can whine & stomp your feet for Dr. Ron Paul all you want it won’t achieve anything.

We must work with what we have as well as agitate4 & light brush fires in the minds of our countrymen that we can & must do better.

If we fail at this slavery will stalk this nation once again only this time every man,woman & child will be the property of the state.

I'll either write in Governor Palin, or vote for Virgil Goode or Tom Hoefling.

ROTFLMAO! Virgil Goode? Talk about phony baloney! Goode was an aggressive supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment - yep the very same Gloria Steinem/N.O.W. ERA of the crazy 1970s. And Goode also supported Douglas Wilder for VA Governor. Now we are supposed to buy that he is a sudden "conservative" because he talks tough on immigration? Bullcrap. And you attack Romney for flip-flopping? Surely you can't be such a fool. This is all academic of course. Even Jim Rob agrees - a vote for A.B.M. - Anyone But Mittens - is a vote for the Marxist Usurper. It is just that simple, but I don't expect to convert you.

If Robert Byrd wasn’t held responsible for being a former KKK member, I’m not going to hold Romney responsible for his religion’s past. Many Christian denominations have what would be considered “racist” pasts. As for what may be done in secret, absence of evidence isn’t proof of guilt.

Look, I vehemently disagree with Romney on a majority of things, but he gives that one tiny corner to hang my hat on. Obama gives none, and those are the only two choices. I want Obama gone, he can’t even be worked with. Maybe Romney can’t either, but I don’t KNOW that. I KNOW it about Obama. It will be a lot easier to fight Romney if necessary.

Please reread my Obama quote:

“Obama said he believes in the Second Amendment’s protection of gun rights and that hunting and shooting are part of a “cherished national tradition.”

IMO he makes is clear that he thinks that the purpose of the 2nd Amendment is ONLY for hunting and target practice. He, the “constitutional scholar” clearly doesn’t understand the Constitution and the meaning and intent of the 2nd Amendment.

Who is YOUR choice

I will vote for Romney. Period. It doesn't make me happy to say it. It would help reduce my vomiting if he named Allen West as VP. I reluctantly pulled the lever for McCain only because he picked Palin. Since McCain is 100 times worse than Romney, I can't very well get picky now, can I? I couldn't stand G.W. Bush in 2000 and STILL can't stand him, but I voted for him twice. The president is not everything. We need a solid conservative Congress, which is why I send cash to Ted Cruz and others. that is the only way we stopped Bush's 1996 amnesty push was with conservatives in Congress and activist rage.

And I respect it’s your choice to make.

Just to be crystal and factually clear: You send money to a Tea party candidate supported by the woman Romney’s crew had done all they can to destroy - Palin and the TEA party alike - And intend to empower the man responsible for it by voting him into power - while hoping the Tea Party can rally and overcome the liberalism in the GOP.

All of the above is 100% factually correct. Do you see a problem with this ‘logic’?

This isn’t about the past, this is about the Romneys being Mormon royalty and powerful religious leaders in a racist religion.

Mitt Romney was a religious leader teaching that stuff, spreading it around the world, he did not quit them, they merely sent down new orders one day, Romney never took a stand against them or changed his mind, he merely followed orders with no personal action whatsoever in one direction or the other.

While we were watching the movie Star Wars, Mitt Romney was teaching racism.

Regan one of our nations greatest presidents lobbied congress to ban assault weapons.

You must really consider him in the same vein as Mitt.

in 1994, Reagan directly lobbied Members of Congress to pass the federal Assault Weapons Ban. The ban passed the U.S. House of Representatives 216-214, a margin of just two votes.

Sorry I can’t give you details of a battle plan that does not exist in other than generalities. And as the saying goes no battle plan survives its first contact with the enemy. For my plan what there is of it see post # 50.

I would also note that one could argue that McCain is more conservative than both Bush’s. Neither Bush had a congressional record to compare to McCain so in reality a fair comparison is not possible.

Show me where Bush and co bashed Palin prior to my votes for them. What they did after is out of my control.

So what part of my posts above was incorrect BTW?

Other than ‘fear’ there is no way to explain a vote for Romney outside of agreement with his history. And ‘fear’ is the stupidest reason ever invented to put someone unqualified into power. Or have we so quickly forgotten?

So does Mitt’s liberalism qualify him? Is that what we are FOR ? If so, then vote for him. But do NOT come back post vote and claim to be a conservative (since anyone claiming conservatives vote for liberals is insane), nor bitch when he rams down his liberal BS. It will be entirely the fault of the GOP and the ABO crowd. Not mine.

I don’t know that Romney is anti-black, but he is more susceptible to the charge than any other republican running this year. If you don’t understand this, you don’t know anything about Romney’s background. The democrats are keeping that silver cannon round (way bigger than a silver bullet) under wraps until either Romney is the nominee and can’t be replaced or if Obama begins doing so poorly, they imagine blacks might start to consider voting for Romney.

The only way Mitt will be able to defend himself is by leaving the Mormon religion. He won’t do that and the dems won’t let him off the hook. So, if you think they can’t cry race on him, get ready, steel yourself.

“The ban passed the U.S. House of Representatives 216-214, a margin of just two votes. One of those votes was cast by former Rep.

Dick Swett (D-NH), who credited Reagan’s direct involvement for his “aye” vote. Swett told the Boston Globe, “he made up his mind after being lobbied by the idol of GOP conservatives, President Ronald Reagan.”

You are correct about the vote tally, but slightly off the mark. I was home from work due to an injury and watched the vote on C-Span. The bill initially failed and voting was held open by Tom Foley until some arms could be twisted to change votes to “aye.” In fact a local TV station (Bay Area) reported on a live broadcast that the bill had failed. I doubt that Swett was one of the vote switchers if he had made his mind up after being lobbied by Reagan.

One reason that Romney is running is his religion, he first asked for a meeting with his Holy Prophet to ask permission to run for President.

Bishop Romney will do anything except leave his religion of which he is a high ranking powerful leader within and he is the patriarch of a family that immigrated to America solely to serve Joseph Smith and they have never strayed from that mission during their 170 years here.

What we are left with is ammunition that the Left-wing media will be only too happy to use against both Mitt Romney and the GOP.

Along with a few freepers that seem to secretly wish for a Obama win so they can beat their chest and scream "I told you so!"

Obama thanks you for your continued support. (He doesn't give a damn about your "principles". He just wants more time to destroy the country. He appreciates what you are doing!)

during their 170 years here.

Actually, Mitt's dad George was born in Mexico. The family was living on a commune so that they could practice their polygamous religion within the context of a socialist community. During the Mexican Revolution, anti-communist revolutionaries force the Romneys to leave Mexico and sneak into the United States.

Mitt is the product of a radical leftist family.

The SOLUTION is to deny our support for romney and maybe illicit a response from him. So far he has shown no signs of even admitting to his weakness of support from what is supposed to be his base. If he continues down this path... the we deny the gop/e their presidential Victory and elect as many Conservatives down ballot as is possible. We do this by shunning romney and showing them that if they want to win elections... they must come through us first. If that fails... we walk and build a new party going forward.

There is never a good time to take a stand against the soft tyranny of a party. There was never a worse time than now... or better time than now... because every election going forward will be just as important as this one. If not now... when?

It isn't as if mitt is doing anything to even admit that he has a problem with what is supposed to be his base. He has made not one single outreach to Conservatives... not one olive branch... not one Contract For America offered... only continuous gop/e attacks on Sarah Palin and the right wing... including Bachmann and others.

The solution is anybody but obama... and romney. romney will lose because romney cannot bring himself to do the hard things that would ensure his Victory. He is an untrustworthy progressive, blue blood, country club elitist... and his entire life has been spent as an activist for progressive ideology. Yeah, he is successful and I praise him for it... but so are buffett and soros... I do not hold their wealth against them... I hold their progressive ideological beliefs and their implementation of those beliefs against them.
