Romney? Nope!

Mitt Romney is polling higher than all the other Republican candidates for the presidency. What does that mean at this point? Nothing and I’m about to break Reagan’s rule of not speaking ill of another Republican. Sorry, Mr. President, got to do it. It’s not my fault if Romney claims to be a Republican.

I can’t stand Mitt Romney because to my eyes, he’s everything the country doesn’t need in its next president. . . another phony, squishy, elitist walk behinder. If he were somehow to win the Republican primary, do you think he would go hard after Obama? Nope, because a squish can’t abide the r-word. You know what I mean.

Now some of you ficons might be saying, hold the phone, Romney knows how to make a buck and he knows how to manage a budget. Really? And what good is that if he won’t fight? Well, OK he did fight for Romneycare and now the Bay State is a financial wreck.

Romney is a man born to wealth and privilege and while his luck of the draw means he can put up a lot of personal money to run, that doesn’t impress me. Shoot, in the ’08 election we were reminded that John McCain was wealthy enough that he couldn’t even remember how many houses his wife bought for him. Sad, that.

The core problem with Mitt Romney is he doesn’t have one. He can bend with the political winds in search of votes like no other so called Republican. Hey, just the other day I heard Mitt was vying for a seat on the sofa with Nancy and Newt. Wow, that would make for one twisted three-way. Sorry, couldn’t help it.

I could go on and on about the shortcomings of Romney, but I think I’ll let conservative activist Ann Barnhardt take us home. Give a listen:

Mitt Romney go home. America is looking for constitutional conservatives.

  1. texasgalt, my “defining moment” re: Romney came when I heard him proclaim his support for ethanol subsidies. Does it surprise me? Not really. Romney obviously sees big government programs as being the solution to our economic ills rather than a big part of the problem. Romney’s support for ethanol is just Romney being Romney.

    But our nation really can’t afford to continue this pattern of high $ government subsidies. That’s the key pattern of behavior that’s got us into this mess to begin with.

    Plus, the rumor mill on leftist websites has it that the left is drooling all over themselves at the idea of getting a big-government Republican running against Obama, because it gives the Obama admin more strategic options (i.e. they can pull from Clinton’s playbook)

    • Seriously, I can’t see how Romney is much different from Obama. One is black and the other is scared of that fact. I guess there is that.

      Romney Campaid Ad?: Vote for me because _ I _ can make giant government socialism work.

  2. You’ve hit the nail on the head in regards to Romney. While the media desperately wants to bill Romney as the only one who can beat Obama (remember they did this with McCain, until he won the nomination), it’s not Romney’s version of Obamacare that really sinks him but his penchant for saying whatever he thinks the “audience at the moment” he’s catering to wants to hear, so much so that I believe the man has no core beliefs that aren’t subject to change if they’re not popular with his “audience at the moment”.
