This Guy is Running for President for Goodness Sakes

That royalist Mitt Romney, the choice of GOP insiders and the pale pastels crowd has done it again. Lord Romney is prone to say things at inopportune moments that make conservatives groan and Obama giggle. Isn’t it just great that the Mittster doesn’t worry about poor people because they are so well taken care of on the government plantation? Yep that’s pretty much what he said and it takes a special kind of stupid to hand the media a soundbite like that.

Listen as Krauthhammer explains *this is bad*:

Obviously Krauthammer has pegged Romney correctly. I don’t know for sure what Romney believes and I’m not sure he does either. Maybe it is nothing more than the fact Romney is new to conservative ideas, but it galls all the more that the GOP base is being fed another “electable” squish.

I suppose conservatives will saddle up for Romney if they must but will he win? Maybe, but he is looking like a might heavy load to drag across the finish line.

As Romney reveals more of himself, greater should be the concern. I realized the other day he isn’t a Republican, he is a Democrat. Worse than a “moderate” of our Party.

I personally didn’t have a problem w/his comment because its TRUE, the so called “poor” in America have every luxury given to them for “free”. They get housing, they get food stamps, they get healthcare, they then buy flat screens and gold chains for their neck, he is right, it is the HARDWORKING American who is getting their asses handed to them, at the gas pump, at the grocery store, in the paycheck with the TAXES, there are screwed every way from Sunday!

It’s not just his phrasing but his worldview that’s problematic. I agree the middle class is getting creamed, and is actually His Majesty’s target, the so-called Buffet rule notwithstanding. The real money from potential taxes lies in the middle class, not the 1%. Mr. Romney’s difficulty is he’s not a conservative, therefore doesn’t believe (nor does it occur to him to say) that a rising tide lifts all boats. Equally asinine is his long-held belief in a COLA process for the minimum wage. Dr. Sowell would likely point out that raising the minimum wage destroys entry level jobs, harming it’s… Read more »

For me, this little tidbit by Krauthammer falls into the “No S**T, Sherlock” category.

This falls into the same category of brilliance as David Brooks and Peggy Noonan figuring out about a year after he got elected that maybe Barack Obama wasn’t the benign soft, cuddly fuzzball that they thought he was.

Thanks alot, Charles, for being part of the cabal that managed to ensure that the 2 people who *do* get this “conservative ideology” are no longer around.

Not one of the GOP candidates, including Paul, can give a good answer to what Romney responded because none of them can really articulate conservatism or the deep down reason we look to Reagan as the model for succeeding candidates. It’s not that Reagan deregulated businesses or ended the Cold War or any number of other things he did for which he deserves all the accolades we can give him. It’s that he empowered PEOPLE to be something more than they were before, using the tools listed above. Reagan believed in US as the driving force of this country. We… Read more »

I don’t know if Flipper Goodhair is electable, or if he’s just “electable”. I lean toward the latter.
