Skip to comments.Romney: Chick-fil-a controversy not part of my campaign

Watch the short clip here.
“Romney - chosen because He LOST TO McCAIN - check
Romney - invented Obamacare - check
Romney - imposed Gay Marriage - check
Romney - tax imposer (fees so its ok) - check
Romney - brutual anticonservative - check
Romney - supports Global Warming, Sharia, TARP - check
Romney - makes ineligibility moot - check”
I’m with you - the country will DEFINITELY be better off with 4 more years of Obama - 4 years of not having to worry about re-election.
We already know Romney has no principles.
We're not as stupid as you seem to think.
We'll see how the Tom Dewey strategy works out for ya.
“We nominated Romney and we are stuck with him, warts and all. Maybe we do better next time. “
Two problems with this nonsense.
1. YOU SUPPORT THE BACKSTABBER ROMNEY,
author of DeathCARE, gay marriage, moreTAXESasfees,
lying-to-a-GOPe-art, and pandering summa cum laude.
2. The lying Mr. RomneyCARE has not nominated, yet.
Obviously such threats by mayors are inappropriate and stink of corruption and collusion. But it's up to the people who elected them to denounce the rhetoric these mayors are spewing, because it certainly won't happen otherwise. Menino (Deval Patrick's puppet) and Rahm are in lockstep with Obama.
If these mayors attempt to use zoning as a weapon to prevent legitimate businesses from establishing operations in their cities, they will be exposed, will have a big fight on their hands, and hopefully will be driven from office. If not, the people who elected them deserve what they get.
Good! Im sick and tired of Obama (or any other President) weighing in on every crack-pot leftist cause de jure. And make no mistake, this whole Chick-fil-a thing is just another leftist-press-generated brouhaha. I applaud Romney for not becoming another Obama in this regard. Presidential attention to this kind of leftist BS is exactly what the leftists and leftist press are trying to gen up. Ignore this crap and it will go away. These issues exist only because the leftist press choose to make them exist in the first place. Romney doesnt need to aid and abet them by getting sucked in to their need for attention.
Presidents should focus on the really big issues, like the economy, taxation, national defense, defense of our borders, and enforcing federal law, and not on the homosexual agenda.
Romney is smart in what he is doing, namely preparing to restore gravitas to the Presidency and ignoring the leftist homosexual agenda. If Romney took the bait, the leftist homos and every other kind of extremist leftist group would simply gen up one of these kind of pseudo-controversies every day. That kind of nonsense would do wonders for taking the focus off of Obama’s record of economic destruction. I say, stay on message Romney, hammer Obama on his record until he’s been pulverized into dust. Do not be distracted by the pseudo-issues and obfuscations of the leftists! Do not play their game! Play your own game!
I "fear" you're gonna be on about 50 fewer state ballots then Mittens, Hoofnmouth.
I'd spend that time on my kids, instead, but hey that's just me.
And we will see how the Pat Paulsen / Cynthia McKinney strategy works for you.
I’m trying to feel good about supporting Romney. He has reminded me again that he has blue blood and I have red. Oh well, go Mitt go!
“He won’t fight the homosexuals...”
This is true - he wants their votes and encouraged their agenda in Mass. when he was governor.
America is fast becoming Sodom and God will be fed up soon and America will be destroyed just as Sodom was.
Of course he can’t comment. Where would that leave him on polygamy, etc? He can’t have one without the rest. He’s as conservative as obama.
You and the Freetards appear to be having a bad week...
Romney can’t “hammer” Obama on his record, because it is so similar to his own.
Its a trap. And he stayed clear of it.
Yeah it was only 10s of MILLIONS of them awful Conservative TEA Party ijits actin up a’gin...
After all who needs them ???
Putting aside your shared desire with Mitt Romney to ignore the destruction of the foundational institution of our civilization, the natural family, you obviously didn't notice that he also took a pass on questions about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of our government.
It's obvious that Romney, like most Leftists, wants to blindly pretend that Islam is no threat to our country.
Mittens is overly gifted with the gift of understatement.
The Massachusetts State House
After Romney's success in turning around the Salt Lake City Olympics, talk arose that he might seek to be governor. The question was, of which state? Utah or Massachusetts? Clearly, he made a bad career move in picking the latter.
If we focus on electing Tea Party people to our legislatures (like Cruz and West), we need not worry about homosexual marriage gaining a foothold in this country.
The legislature never stopped Willard before...
He never referred to them when he all on his lil ol lonesome brought in same sex marriage to MASS..
and dont worry that Willard would have
looked like a fool and a hypocrite...
He would have just looked like he was panhandling and kissing up to us the Conservatives and TEA Partiers (you know those awful Marriage Act folk)
As he has no respect for us or what we want or believe in or for traditional marriage only he just ignored us...
As for ammo, Obama has it now...
Willard keeps playing into Obamas hands...
Its as though he is running to lose...
Yes, he was definitely being a bit too kind in using that description.
The Loony Liberal Massachusetts Legislature was on full and horrifying display during the televised gay marriage debates.
It would be difficult to find a more unique collection of horses' a$$'s anywhere in the universe.
We don’t need the leader of the free world; the one who will meet face to face with Putin; getting involved.
If Willard had stood up for traditional marriage and had his staff here in the US send out for CFA last Wednesday “the leader of the free world” would not be invloved...
Willard is not the GOP nominee yet let alone elected as POTUS...
I think youre getting a wee bit aead of yourself there...
Plus Willatd kissed up and boasted to Mr Cathy at Liberty University that they come to a screeching halt whenever the campaign sees a CFA...
Wheres the screeching halt at CFA last Wednesday...
Once again, Mitt avoids the values issues.
You’ve got DemoRAT mayors across the country threatening to “Ban” Chick-fil-A because of their religious beliefs, and Romney is STILL afraid to say something as simple as “I believe in the 1st amendment.”
Never wants to get involved in any “distractions” — distractions from what? Him calling Obama a nice guy and running a lowball passive campaign?
I have zero confidence for November. None.
Good - it shouldn’t be something that was “part of a presidential campaign” - it is something much bigger and no opportunity should be afforded for the left to try to spin it - and trivialize it - as being a campaign gimmick.
Why does Romney REFUSE to address the issue - this is NOT about Chick-fil-a but about same sex marriage. There is NOTHING truthful about him. Romney - the INITIATOR of SAME SEX marriage in MA - all his ‘accomplishments’ are ANTI-AMERICAN.
Let’s see if there is ONE person who will push the maggot on this one. Where is Santorum and Bachmann - closed mouth for their favorite politician who bought them - they are as phoney as he is while prancing around ‘trying’ to appear conservative.
Don’t you have a presidential debate today? Where is it at?
You really don’t get the point he was making? He even put quote marks around it to make it even more plain.
Again do we want an adult to run for President; someone that has some seriousness?
Or do we want someone who is out being jerked around by every controversy? And is made small by doing so?
It's our job to handle these issues.
The GOP sent me their “2012 Presidential Platform Survey”
It doesnt mention same sex marriage or gay rights or anything close to it...
Under Values Issues there are 3 questions on abortion and one on school vouchers...
The abortion ones are Repeal and Replace...give states the right to decide on abortion ?
Should they even keep a strong pro-life plank on the platform ?
Should federal funds go to private non-profit group that provide abortions ?
Hello ? wheres the Q on same sex marriage ???
There is none ...
and so Willard was just going along with his political platform by ignoring the fight againt the homosexuals...
HIS platform he helps write it...
I intend to write across it in black marker in big letters and send it back since theyve already paid for the postage and they are anxious for my input
“What issues do you want our Republican presidential campaign to focus on in 2012 ?”
REPEAL AND REPLACE WILLARD
"Romney needs to focus on economic issues and keep the economy the centerpiece of his campaign. Getting caught up in this distraction will hurt Romney and can only help Obama, if only that it gets the bad economic news off the front pages."
Economic issues are crucial... but they are not the only important thing in this campaign. Why would it be so wrong for him to simply say he supports freedom of religion and freedom of speech?
There is a coordinated assault on religion going on these days- from compelling Catholic Churches to provide abortifcacients through Obamacare to Rahm Emanuel's disgusting behavior a week ago on the permit issue. It is completely alien to our culture and history, and people are irate. Believe me, there are more people on our side of this issue than on the other...
On a positive note, I am glad to see the victory of Ted Cruz in Texas last week.
I am glad as well to see that. However, unless we get a conservative in the Presidency we will never fix our problems. I knew you were talking as a collective....I just wanted to ensure you knew I did not vote for him in the primary. The General is tough. I sorta promised some FREEPERS that I was going to vote for Romney just to get rid of Obama. But I have a serious problem with rewarding someone the Presidency that does not deserve it. It is only August and I am sure that when I walk in the voting booth, I will pull it for Romney but it is the worst feeling ever and I did not even have this feeling last round with McCain....Even if Palin was not the VP nom, I did not have this revolting feeling about McCain. Romney is just plain scum. He is clearly a hard left socialist at best and we have to vote for him.....SICK!!!!!
Utah Right to Life refused to give him an endorsement...
Thats why he went with MASS...
MASS was a much better fit for progressive liberal Willards slant on social issues etc...
This is all part of an obvious larger effort to avoid moral matters, in other words, the actual disease.
God only knows how long we can get away with that sort of “doctoring.”
When this thing metastasizes, there will no turning back.
Not sure what you mean, RomneyBOT.
YOU and Mr. RomneyCARE, author of DEATH PANELS
watched America go for FREEDOM as he crept overseas to see his horses
and the EU and UN marry his RomneyCARE.
Too bad Romney and his Team only
support lying, cheating, INSTEAD OF freedom
and the US Constitution.
And yes, that makes it a good week for us.
I do have a debate tonight, yes.
The GOP are as deceitful as the maggot mitt is. They already changed their platform once they made the same sex marriage INITIATOR and pro baby killing their ‘favorite’ candidate while IGNORING NEWT.
They are ‘in your face’ deliberately deceitful and are frauds and guilty of false advertising. Rove, et al, are all a bunch of ‘anti - Americans’. We already know the maggot mitt has been all along!
If Romney waded into Chick Fil A or Bachmann there's too much of a risk that the media would try to make these stores the main issue all the way up to Nov. 4 and we would lose independents.
Well, since the biggest voting block is Conservatives, and fully 60% of Conservatives now stand outside of the Republican party... Where do you suppose those Conservatives are, and how do you appeal to them? I think worrying about 'upsetting the independents' is ill-informed and a misdirection.... We ARE the independents.
Whew! What a hateful screed.
If name calling is all you can do ....
Find another line of work.
I agree. The economy is what will do in Obama and Romney needs to stay focused on that issue. No matter what Romney does or doesn’t do some here will never agree with him.
When your house is on fire you don’t worry about what’s in the shed out back and you don’t care what color the fire engines are....all you care about is putting out the fire because without the house nothing else counts.
As you well know, my friend, Romney stands for nothing.
How, therefore, can he stand for us?
He can’t, and he won’t.
He has to be who and what he is.
Kind of like the old story of the scorpion and the fox.
Yeah, I HATE EVIL as GOD HATES EVIL. You have a problem with that - you have a problem w/God. And I will expose it and denounce it every chance I get.
Don’t worry about a line of work - mitt likes to fire people and doesn’t care about the poor.
As for me, I am VERY WELL protected!
If you make the Most High your dwelling—even the LORD, who is my refuge—
then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. Psalm 91: 9,10
The fox, of course, in this case, is “conservative” Republicans. They swear the scorpion is going to get them to the other side of the stream.
But we know how that story ends, every time.
There's nothing that can be done about them. They are so full of blind hate and ignorance they cannot be reasoned with.
We need to stay focused on one thing, the total defeat of BHO and control of the congress.
I guess that's two things.
Take your ‘Taliban’ hat off. The Romney campaign is ‘for’ and ‘against’ all those things mentioned. The CFA campaign is something great and I stood in line for over 30 minutes to show my support, and IT doesn’t have to be aligned with the Romney campaign. Period. So, get off your ideological Taliban crap.
It’s not a trap, the maggot does NOT believe in traditional marriage.
If you think he is FOR traditional marriage YOU know nothing about him - just like the con job barry pulled on the left. See, it doesn’t matter the political party - there are *holes in both of them!
Even more pathetic you felt the NEED to give him a cover - just like the media does w/barry. That’s all evil has to do to exist, is have people who support EVIL.
Pretty much how democrats always talk about conservatives who won't bend to their will.
Highly ironic, considering the fact that you folks don't have any sort of reason, or logic, or principle that argues legitimately for your pro-choice democrat socialist candidate. Fear and insults. That's all you've got.
Your posts on this thread kind of give me a different take on the possible meaning of your screen name.
