between this and the etch-a-sketch comment, his advisors have pretty much admitted what we all already know - that mitt will say anything to get elected and that he has no convictions whatsoever. he just really, really, REALLY wants to be president.

one of the most impressive features of the Romneybot 2012 model is that he can hold all positions on every issue at the same time, Depending on the audience he determines which position to espouse. It's a very impressive feature.

Don't tease them. They might respond by nominating Sarah Palin on their own.

Yeah, but at least he's not a muslim.

At least he's proudly admitting that he will say anything to get elected, as long as he thinks you want to hear it.
 
2012-04-14 09:13:14 AM
Which makes him just like most other politicians.

It's fun watching a man with a MBA and JD from Harvard trying to appeal to people whose major achievement in life was graduating high school in under six years. In the quiet times just before he's introduced, he must silently wonder if gutting every logical bone in his body is worth being a nominee for President of the United States.

Ya know... I think that Etch-A-Sketch analogy is wrong

Romney displays a different strategy than the one he plays. He's playing grandmaster chess and people complain. Democrats are soooo stoooooooopid. LOL!!!

I wandered over to Free Republic today to check out their mood.

I now, odds are, most will just fall in line and vote for Romney anyway, but many of them are making noises about voting 3rd party. That's something I can support and plan to do myself. Partly because I live in Louisiana and it will go Republican regardless of my vote and partly because I would love to see viable third parties in this country.

Of course I'm voting for Gary Johnson.
Most of Free Republic seems to be stuck on Newt Gingrich or Sarah Palin.
 
2012-04-14 11:04:10 AM
Neut is a republican and will never run third party against the nominee. He is probably planning on becoming a republican party official of some sort and would not want to endanger that. Make no mistake Neut is ONLY in it for the benefit of Neut. A failed third party attempt gets him nothing, a failed GOP candidacy gets him recognition, contacts, power etc...

Bunnyhat: Gary Johnson.


He's against same sex marriage.

Take a look at R. Lee Wrights. Also possibly the most anti-war candidate out there.

Maybe personally, but he believes that same sex marriage should be legal.

I don't agree with him on every issue, but I could support Gary Johnson if he somehow became president. I also think he has a better chance at making a strong 3rd party run then anyone else currently in the mix.

You mean your small gummint and lower taxes guy turned out to be a rich guy in bed with corporate interests who will sell you and your vote cheap? You got what you deserved, teabaggers. Now turn off that AM radio and that Murdoch-owned news channel and do some research. Just might be you screwed yourself.

It's thanks to the new Quantum Rmoney chip. He doesn't really hold all opinions at once, but he could be holding any of them until you check and the quantum superpositions collapse.

I don't think it's acceptable to use GOP and Tea Party as if they're interchangeable.. Romney's not the Tea Party nominee. There is no formal Tea Party nominee. If there was, it probably wouldn't be Romney. It'd be Ron Paul before it's Romney. The Tea Party came about from Ron Paul's campaign 4 years ago, remember. Before the GOP co-opted it with big government supporting evangelicals like Palin and Bachmann.

Some of the Tea Party types might even support whomever becomes the Libertarian candidate. Which will hopefully be Gary Johnson. Many will just vote GOP just to oppose Obama.

...but what will happen when he hits the general circuit and encounters many different people with conflicting views at the same time? I think people will notice when he tells one supporter how he loves farm subsidies and then tells the next that he's right that those dumbass farmers don't deserve anything...

Another nice feature is how he attacks Obama for holding Position A, when Romney's Position B will work better. Until the next day when Romney attacks Position B as extreme, partisan and unworkable. The efficiencies to be gained by having Romney debate himself cannot be underestimated.

Pretty much; he's the ultimate flip-flopper. That's why Obama's just going to eviscerate him during the campaign; that first debate could be the icing on the cake for the President to get re-elected.
 
2012-04-14 01:07:11 PM
I don't think the Teabaggers liked him so much before.
 
2012-04-14 01:08:01 PM
"According to a Romney adviser, his private view of immigration isn't as anti-immigrant as he often sounded."

What exactly does that mean?


It means he's gonna lose for being an insincere, obvious hypocrite who's only firm policy is "I want to be POTUS and I will say or do whatever my people tell me to if I think it will help me win this".

Not the only reason, of course, but number one with a bullet.

Right, teabaggers would never vote for a black/brown guy... They were the reason Allen West got elected and to a lesser extent Rubio here in FL. We also have our first black Lt. Governor who they all voted for. Your average teabagger doesnt care what color the candidate is as long as they like the message.

Teabaggers like black guys. They all work with one. He's quiet and likable and does what he's told.

shivashakti: I don't think it's acceptable to use GOP and Tea Party as if they're interchangeable..


Oh horseshiat. The GOP considers the Teabaggers their base.

And the article spells out Romney's shiatstorm: he can't lie worth a damn, and has no real values to hold onto. The next few months are going to be a trainwreck for him because his long-term plan is 'pander to the Base, then pander to the moderates, and then profit.' And it won't work because nobody is happy with him. The fact that Romney can't change even during a primary shows its over for him in a lot of ways. He should have just sat 2012 out and tried for 2016.

I disagree. I think 50% of them will vote Romney, but it looks like Jim Robinson is cooking up a scheme to have everyone there write in Sarah Palin, to show the Republicans how many votes they lost by nominating Romney.

There are two types of people over there, basically: those who dislike Obama's policies and speak in hyperbole about him being History's Greatest Monster, and those who actually believe that he is History's Greatest Monster. The former will not vote for Romney because of his positions during his time in MA. The latter would vote for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama.

Also, we have to see who Romney picks as his VP first to really see what they do. They were lukewarm about McCain before Palin got on the ticket.

They care about race. Notice that every minority they elect spends a majority of their time condemning their own race.
