Ann Coulter Letter

Strongest case against Romney a few sheets short of a ream

Mitt Romney has spent more than 20 years in private enterprise, making thousands of business decisions affecting hundreds of companies that led to more than 100,000 new jobs and billions of dollars for employees and investors. So you can see why the left despises him.

Among Romney’s thousands of business decisions, the one I gather his opponents consider his absolute worst was the decision to close a paper plant in Marion, Ind. Which wasn’t his decision at all.

It was labor trouble at the Marion plant of a Bain-acquired company, Ampad, that formed the basis of Teddy Kennedy’s desperate 11th-hour attack on Romney in their 1994 Senate competition. Plant worker Randy Johnson was featured in Kennedy campaign commercials against Romney and disgruntled workers were lavished with Dickensian lachrymosity in The Boston Globe.

In the current presidential campaign, Democrats — and some Republicans — have returned to Ampad and the Marion plant as their case in chief against Romney.

The “King of Bain” movie that a pro-Newt Gingrich super-pac just bought with money donated by a gambling magnate cites only one company closed by Bain when Romney was even there.

Guess which one? That’s right: Ampad.

The Democratic National Committee has retained Johnson to go on tour in order to more fulsomely describe the horrors perpetrated by Bain Capital on workers at that plant. As salt-of-the-earth Johnson explains, he lost his job at Ampad because Romney “didn’t care about the worker.”

It is beyond journalistic malpractice for media outlets showcasing the bitter and lying Johnson to neglect to mention that he was the union president who led the strike that forced Ampad to close the plant.

And yet The New York Times, MSNBC and others who have publicized Johnson’s sob story regularly refuse to convey that crucial fact. This would be as if a judge excluded the fact that the defense’s principal witness is the defendant’s mother.

By 1994, the unionized Marion plant was becoming a losing operation to every company that owned it. It was a paper plant, and in the early 1990s, the paper business was beginning to go the way of the buggy whip, as the world became computerized.

(Randy Johnson suffered? Paper magnate Peter Brandt nearly lost Stephanie Seymour over the collapse of the paper market.)

Bain Capital specialized in rescuing troubled companies, so in 1992, it bought the faltering paper-based office products business, Ampad, from the Mead paper company. Far from shutting down Ampad, Bain started buying up more firms in the industry to add to Ampad’s portfolio, hoping to create efficiencies and synergies.

In July 1994, Bain-controlled Ampad bought Smith-Corona’s struggling paper business — home to the famed Marion plant.

(Despite shedding its paper business, Smith-Corona went bankrupt the next year. Nobody uses typewriters anymore. Ironically, a century earlier, people said Smith-Corona typewriters would never replace the pen. They probably railed against Smith-Corona as “vulture capitalists” destroying the pen industry.)

Seeking to succeed where Smith-Corona had failed, Bain’s Ampad sought to renegotiate a suicide pact-union contract at the Marion plant. But instead of renegotiating, union president Randy Johnson thought it would be a great idea to immediately go on strike.

As long as the nation is still in the fifth stage of grief over Steve Jobs’ death, with gushing tributes to his contributions to our wonderful new world of computerized books, letters, memos, newspapers, CDs and classified ads, ask yourselves: Would the mid-1990s have been a good time for workers in an industry made vulnerable by the new, paperless information age to stage a long, acrimonious strike?

Union president Randy Johnson thought it was. The Democrats (and some Republicans) apparently do, too.

Romney wasn’t even at Bain during Ampad’s acquisition of the Smith-Corona business, much less for the strike at the Marion plant. He was on a leave of absence from Bain to run against Sen. Ted Kennedy. Nonetheless, a dozen workers fired from Ampad’s Marion plant showed up in Massachusetts to bird-dog Romney in the final months of his campaign.

It worked. Romney’s lead disappeared and, after celebrating with a few cocktails, Kennedy returned to the Senate to continue wrecking the country.

About six months later, Ampad closed the Marion plant for good. As Ampad’s president, Charles Hanson, explained at the time, the company had “sustained severe economic damage as a result of our inability to manufacture products at our Marion plant.” Apparently, the only thing this ruthless capitalist lackey cared about was that the factory actually produce product!

In any event, it’s highly unlikely that Bain would have anything to do with a day-to-day management decision to close a plant, anyway.

Bain led Ampad to thrive over the next few years, buying up more companies in 1995, hiring more workers and making investors nearly $100 million. By 1996, Ampad was being described in Chief Executive magazine as “a stronger, profitable competitor in a consolidating — and reviving — domestic industry.”

Alas, people kept using those damn computers and shopping for discount paper at Staples and similar stores, and in 1999, Ampad had to file for bankruptcy protection.

Contrary to every single news report on Bain’s involvement with Ampad, Bain did not drive the company to bankruptcy by looting it. To the contrary, Bain built up the company, added other companies to it, turned it into a “profitable competitor” that paid handsome dividends for a few years. (And by the way, the company would have gone bankrupt a lot sooner if it hadn’t closed down the non-producing Marion plant.)

But in the end, that wasn’t enough.

If years of furious acquisition, followed by bankruptcy nearly a decade later had been Bain’s secret plan all along, Bain would be the most ham-fisted looter in history.

Politicians’ morbid fear of technological advances in the free market has real-world consequences. You will recall that the mainstream media-adored FBI agent Colleen Rowley’s main indictment of the bureau after 9/11 was that the FBI had really old computers, preventing it from anticipating the greatest terrorist attack in world history.

In response to Rowley’s charges, for example, the Times’ Maureen Dowd denounced federal law enforcement agencies for being “antiquated,” “inept” and “bloated.” (She also said: “I want to see some agents lose their jobs.” Maureen Dowd: Inadvertent Romney Supporter.)

Of course, if the Democrats, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry were running things, the FBI would still be using paper and pens — maybe quill pens — all in order to save Randy Johnson’s union job! Instead of a Xerox machine, they’d have a monk in the back room creating copies of documents by hand so as not to be accused of “vulture capitalism” for eliminating the monk’s job.

I don’t know how Mitt Romney is supposed to explain free market capitalism to career politicians, much less describe the intricacies of a thousand business decisions in two minutes during a debate.

But we know that Bain’s acquisition of Ampad is the left’s best shot against Romney’s business career. We may presume they don’t have anything better, or we’d be hearing about it.

The anti-Romney hysterics don’t get to come back later with another company allegedly looted by Bain that I’ll have to spend another week researching. Henceforth, I shall refer you back to the Ampad example — their smoking gun — which, as we have seen, is not even a water pistol.

    Whoever a republican votes for in the republican primaries becomes a reflection of who we are as a party. We should only focus on what we want in our politicians as a party and not who can win. The question should not be “who is the most conservative that can win”, but who best reflects my values. If we lose, we lose. Either things will get worse and others will come around, or things will get better and we should come around.

    What is polluting the system is the fact that 1) Open primaries are allowed in many states. This allows other parties to affect your parties’ choice in candidates – never to the benefit of your party. 2) Believing that the person who best reflects your values is a loser! Never think this. Never allow anyone to tell you this. If you are susceptible to this weakness, then you can be told who to vote for. I will NOT be told who to vote for!

    The things that Romney has done do not reflect my values. He has run as a progressive, a moderate and now as a conservative. His flip on abortion is the only believable one. His excuse of states rights for Romneycare is so weak as to be laughable. This man does NOT share my values.

     Ron Paul is a nutcase, who, every time he opens his mouth on foreign policy, I lean more towards voting for Obama should Paul become the nominee. I would rather go to a war over money with China
    then to freely allow Muslims and Shaira law to enslave this country.

    Perry would be OK but for his capitulation to amnesty. He is losing badly and that includes South Carolina – the first southern state. If he’s near the bottom there, he should get out.

    Both Gingrich and Santorum do share my values to a great extent, though varying degrees. If either are still on the ballot when I vote, I will decide between them.

    These are my points. You vote for who has your values.

    LET’S PLEASE CONCENTRATE on ways of defeating the ENEMY, OBAMA, NOT Romney, Ann, Newt, or OURSELVES!

    The LEFT’S WAR ON SUCCESS, especially by any Republican like Romney WHO IS NOW BEING ATTACKED FOR HIS GIVING MILLIONS TO HIS CHURCH, OR “CULT” WHICH WILL BE THE FOCUS NOW, is but one piece of their War on America but today Obama’s War on Oil reached another new low with his decision to not allow Keystone BUT THIS IS A GOOD THING. 

    When we fill up our gas tanks and cringe at the dollar dial moving faster than the gallon dial, we can tell others at the pump that “IT’S OBAMA’S FAULT and I ain’t voting for him again!” Obama talks of hurting the middle class and GAS PRICES ARE HURTING ALL OF US! Gas prices are going up to $4 and above by spring according to the experts and all the Republicans have to do is EXPLOIT THIS WITH A COMMERCIAL AND BLAME IT ALL ON OBAMA and when Democrats and Independents fill up their tank, THAT COMMERCIAL WILL REPLAY IN THEIR MINDS! Included should be his aiding of Brazil’s Petroblas and Soros, moratoriums on our Gulf drillers, and his electric car farce.

    Republican motto THAT SHOULD BE EXPLOITED: DRILL HERE, DRILL NOW!

    Romney the last man standing? I will proudly vote for him. Hell, I’d even vote for Cindy Sheehan instead of Obama!

  • planeboy

    Ann…companies like Bain have been around for sometime…people lose jobs in any restructuring of a company that’s failing….from the numbers I’ve seen Bain had a 80% success rate…go after the real “bain” of this country….progressivism ….

    Old Gingrich must be feeling good about his campaign again because he brought the Eyes of Newt out to the Podium today.

    What does $118,215 have in common with Mitt Romney?  The car he drives?  A diamond necklace for his wife?  Capital gains taxes he paid last year?

    No, this is the cost of one share of Berkshire Hathaway A stock.  And the owner of this company is none other than Obama’s pet home-boy, Warren Buffet, the King of Acquisition.  You know, the guy who buys companies, rips them apart, sells their assets, closes the companies and then sells them for millions (Shades of Gordon Gekko). And then kisses Obama’s ass with stupid comments like, the rich should pay more.

    I ain’t a Romney fan, but Ann, how about exposing the real problem with Odungbrains?

    Thanks PB! I’m just getting tired of having Romney, or anyone else for that matter shoved down my throat. Then, I always do weary of the mudslinging.

  • TampaMike50

    When I look at the choices we NOW have in the GOP–it’s Romney or nobody.  I want Boob-ama OUT; and if Mitt is our guy then let’s get behind him and do ALL we can to ensure Hussein and his missus spend next Halloween watching TV in Chicago.  I doubt whether even Ron Paul could possibly screw up America any worse than BHO has.  Mitt’s got the goods and the experience we need, and if you really don’t like him then get over it and vote while holding your nose.  Mission #1–evict Obama in Nov!!!  Keep that in mind, and when you look at Newt and Ron and Rick–it’s just not happening for ANY of them.  Let’s back the winning horse here and start fixing America and put people back to work!!!  If not, in 2016 we will become the United Socialist States of America, USSA; ruled by dictator for life Barack Mugobama.

    Predictions soundly based on 2 months of navigating cult-of-personality messages on this board by Coulter and other Mitt Rahmney acolytes:Mittsies will fantasize endlessly about Mitt’s prospects for winning, his positioning, his character and achievements even as they personally disparage critics and criticism without benefit of corroboration or substantiation other than their own assumed authority, generally rendered anonymously.  They will unswervingly respond to facts and substantive arguments about Mitt’s political and character flaws either by charging the purveyors of those facts and arguments with anti-Mormon bigotry, with taking facts and quotes out of context, with dishonesty, or with being secret evangelical or Obama agents. Or they will deflect or ignore.  They will seldom if ever offer any back-up to such claims. They will virtually never show how something was taken out of context or has been doctored or misrepresented. To ask for sourcing and substantiation is futile.  In the scattered instances where Mittsies pretend to source their allegation, the sources will turn out to be liberal sites or totally unknown outlets that cannot be easily checked out and therefore offer no actual credibility.  Mittsies will not engage on important matters like Mitt’s two losing campaigns and and being forced to relinquish a second term as governor because of  his collapsed public support, making his electoral record 1 for 4 and giving him the same number of electoral failures as Santorum, Newt and Perry combined (though those men chalked up more than two dozen wins between them).  
    (I omit Paul because he is a libertarian who has tripped up at the polls as often as Mitt, as he surely will again, though he has won a hell of a lot more races.)
    Mittsies will refuse to discuss Mitt’s Democratic background, his irritation that blacks were finally admitted into the Mormon church and his serial employment of illegal aliens to maintain his estate even after being caught red-handed by reporters and falsely promising he’d never allow it to happen again, consistent with his support of “sanctuary cities” where illegals are protected from repercussions of their lawbreaking.
    Mittsies will remain mum in the face of Mitt’s pro-Clinton, anti-Reagan, anti-Contract for America history. To call attention to the matter incites them to attack his rivals instead of defending the Massachusetts Two Step.
    During Coulter’s cheerleading for her adopted Democratic stepson in mysterious Mittsyville, Coulter’s tallies of recommendations from her primarily conservative audience plunged to 2 or 3 percent of the usual pace. It’s one thing to HAVE to vote for a hollow-gram; it’s another to develop or feign excitement over it.

    Ann Coulter has long since SOLD OUT.  Her support for the MARXIST MITTENS is unconscionable.  Obviously, she hasn’t changed much since she smoked pot and went to Grateful Dead concerts (oh wait, she still does).

    Less red meat and more vegetables. Not sure what it means…

  • AustinAndy

    Romney’s inevitable run for the candidacy of the Republican Party rests on a win in Iowa by a handful of votes (and it is still in dispute).  He won decisively in New Hampshire but still could not get over fifty percent in a state that was made to order for him.  South Carolina seems to be slipping away from him and Florida is where he has run over 3 million in campaign ads which are essentially unchallenged.  If money and organization were the winning combination, he should be running away with the nomination instead of fighting for his political life.

    Romney is much, much better than Obama as a president.  I don’t see him bowing to the Saudi king  or embarrassing himself with the British Prime Minister or snubbing the Israeli Prime Minister.  Compared to the Marxist now in the White House, he believes in capitalism and if he carries out his promise to end ObamaCare, the economy cannot help but improve.

    But he is also clearly not a conservative and would not preside over the nation as one.  So I find his stance on illegal immigration a question mark, he still does not have his own answer to the Bain argument which should be easy, and he will not fundamentally change the direction of government growth into a leaner and better government.  His religion may worry some people, but frankly for me it is a nonstarter pro or con.  Nor am I encouraged that he would pick judicially pro-constitution  justices so much as middle of the roaders like Anthony Kennedy.

    So I look for a staunch conservative and not a mushy middle of the road RINO.  Ron Paul’s foreign policy of isolationism is dangerous as the 1930s show.  His ideas about drug legalization is just kooky.  Perry has done an admirable job here is Texas as governor, but his inability to debate with any acuity has shot his campaign in the foot.  So I too, look to either Santorum or Gingrich as a better candidate for the Republican nominee, offering a real vibrant difference between who occupies the White House now versus a pastel difference that Romney would make.

  • NoMarxist

    It’s a shame that a seemingly conservative commentator like Coulter would spend her time pushing a moderate liberal like Romney thinking that it will end differently than the last election in which the liberal media chose our John McCandidate.  If Romney is our nominee, he will lose because he has no substance, a rarely noticeable backbone and an unwillingness to give a straight answer seen by many as the same weakness which is despised in many of our current Republican representatives.

  • Tony_Seco

    Agreed Andy, and remember New Hampshire is an open primary. More accurately, you can walk in register republican and vote. Democrats have no need to vote for Obama and will vote for the most liberal republican.

    Sorry TY but the LEFT IS BLIND TO HYPOCRISY. 

    Here is a list of the 25 richest (26 thanks to a tie) celebrities supporting the Occupy Movement (Source: Celebrity Net Worth)They definitely belong in the 99%?

    1. Yoko Ono – $500 million 2. Jay-Z – $450 million 3. David Letterman – $400 million (tie) Stephen King – $400 million 5. Russell Simmons – $325 million 6. Sean Lennon – $200 million 7. Mike Myers – $175 million 8. George Clooney – $160 million. 9. Brad Pitt – $150 million (tie) Don King – $150 million 11. Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) – $145 million 12. Jane Fonda – $120 million (tie) Miley Cyrus – 120 million 14. Al Gore – $100 million 15. Roseanne Barr – $80 million (tie) Deepak Chopra – $80 million 17. Kanye West – $70 million (tie) Dan Rather – $70 million 19. Alec Baldwin – $65 million (tie) Matt Damon – $65 million 21. Tom Morello – $60 million (tie) Mia Farrow – $60 million 23.

    LAST NIGHT TWO SMOKE BOMBS were hurled over the White House fence by the Occupy DC and this should be labeled a “terrorist attack” and the anarchist movement should be immediately investigated by Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security since it could have easily been poisonous gas bombs.  This, like the shooting at the WH even when the President was not there, was considered an assassination attempt and so should this incident. Therefore, ANYONE, INCLUDING OBAMA, aiding and supporting a now “terrorist organization,” which the Democrats, and the above list, have proudly supported and funded, should now be arrested for “aiding and abetting a terrorist organization and their attempt to overthrow the United States!”

    We’re at the point that absolutely nothing Progressives say and is echoed by the their minions in the msm can be believed is factual.   They have nothing to run on other than lies and perverting history to their image.

    If we win Conservative control of the Senate and increase control of the House whomever is elected President will have to follow their lead.  The biggest problem will be nullifying all the crap that has been passed since the Socialist took control of our government.

    The sound we’ll hear after the November election will be liberal heads imploding all over the USA!

    (1) The suggestion that Mitt Rahmney created 100,000 jobs is a shibboleth, as Coulter fully knows. And how does she and how do we know? It’s because whenever Slick Willard or his campaign are asked to produce particulars, they refuse.

    They have acknowledged their figures include payroll at companies long ago shed by Bain. And they mumble when asked if their figures include the jobs that were shelved or outsourced during Bain ownership, let alone after it.

    (2) The Rahmney campaign is largely founded on the precept that Der Mittster’s private sector experience makes him best equipped to manage the economy. In other words, he should operate as a technocrat president.

    While that dovetails neatly with Mitt’s lifetime of radiating top-down liberalism (or progressivism, to use the self-identification he prefers), it’s the exact opposite of the free-enterprise system created by the founders.

    Lack of business experience hardly hindered Ike or Reagan or other defenders of the American Way. They believed the unseen hand(s) of the marketplace was the best means of advancing prosperity and liberty.

    We don’t need the “experience” of a Rahmney any more than we need a Corzine or Soros cracking a whip. We’ve had capitalism in spades over the past 3 years — crony capitalism, which is the face of capitalism when it’s aggressively shaped by bureaucrats.

    Half of the voters are stupid and half of those are stupider. We no longer have a choice between Democrats and republicans. Neither of those exist anymore. We have a choice between Socialists and those who will continue to give our money to the rich. Romney is one of those. The fact is that things obviously don’t work the way that the government has been doing them. Face it and face it soon. You don’t have much time left. After you face reality, we might be able to save the Republic and Ron Paul will help us get started.

  • Jerrybear

    That’s the candidate that the Republican establishment likes.  Milquetoast moderates have dominated the GOP ever since Reagan left office.  Republican voters keep voting for these guys so we only have ourselves to blame.  I will say that Romney is better than John McCain though.  If he actually intends to do what he says regarding immigration, I won’t have a lot to complain about.  Though I won’t hold my breath.

    Conservatives Remain the Largest Ideological Group in U.S.

    http://www.gallup.com

    Political ideology in the U.S. held steady in 2011, with 40% of Americans continuing to describe their views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal. This marks the third straight year that conservatives have outnumbered moderates, after more than a decade in which moderates mainly tied or outnumbered conservatives.

    The percentage of Americans calling themselves “moderate” has gradually diminished in the U.S. since it was 43% in 1992. That is the year Gallup started routinely measuring ideology with the current question. It fell to 39% in 2002 and has been 35% since 2010. At the same time, the country became more politically polarized, with the percentages of Americans calling themselves either “conservative” or “liberal” each increasing.

    Gallup measures political ideology by asking Americans to say whether their political views are very conservative, conservative, moderate, liberal, or very liberal. Relatively few Americans identify with either extreme on this scale, although 2 in 10 Republicans self-identify as very conservative — double the proportion of Democrats calling themselves very liberal.

    The 2011 results are based on 20 Gallup and USA Today/Gallup surveys conducted between January and December, encompassing interviews with 20,392 U.S. adults, including 5,912 Republicans, 6,087 Democrats, and 8,064 independents. The trends represent annual averages of multiday Gallup surveys conducted each year.

    Conservatives Dominant Among Republicans

    The majority of Republicans say they are either very conservative or conservative, but the total proportion of conservatives grew 10 percentage points between 2002 and 2010, from 62% to 72%. At the same time, the percentage of moderates fell from 31% to 23%. Relatively few Republicans say they are liberal — just 4% in 2011. Republicans’ ideology largely held at the 2010 levels in 2011.

    Democrats Maintain Moderate-Liberal Divide

    As recently as 2002, the solid plurality of Democrats were “moderate,” while smaller, but nearly equal, percentages called themselves “liberal” and “conservative.” From 2003 through 2007, the liberal share of the party grew to 38%, while the “moderate” and “conservative” percentages each diminished somewhat.

    As a result, from 2007 through 2011, the party has consisted of equal percentages of moderates and liberals, at about 38% to 40%, while about 20% have called themselves conservative.

    Independents Mostly Moderate, but Also More Conservative Than Liberal

    Independents — who make up the largest political group in the country — have been steadier ideologically than either major party group over the last decade. However, since 2008, the proportion describing themselves as moderate has declined slightly, from 46% to 41%, and the proportion who are conservative has increased slightly, from 30% to 35%.

    Currently, the largest segment of independents describe their views as moderate, while significantly more identify as conservative than as liberal, 35% vs. 20%.

    Young Americans Are More Moderate; Older Americans, More Conservative

    The ideological profile of adults aged 18 to 29 is markedly different from that of Americans in all older age groups. The plurality of young adults, 40%, are moderate, while equal percentages — 28% — are conservative or liberal. By contrast, the plurality of all older age groups, 40% or more, are conservative, while about a third are moderate and no more than 21% liberal.

    Notably, the upward trend in conservatism among all Americans since 2002 is seen primarily among adults 30 and older. While those 18 to 29 grew more conservative for a brief period from 2002 through 2005, the percentage conservative subsequently reverted to fewer than 3 in 10, while conservatism continued to edge higher among older Americans.

    Given that the adults aged 18 to 29 in 2000 make up the majority of 30- to 49-year-olds in 2011, it appears that conservative views take hold as Americans age, which may also explain the even higher rates of conservatism among 50- to 64-year-olds and seniors. However, in addition to these age patterns, it appears that conservatism has increased overall since 2002 because of heightened conservatism among all age groups of Americans 30 and older.

    The percentage “liberal” rose slightly among all age groups over the past decade, although spikes in liberalism among certain groups in 2007 and 2008 did not last.

    Bottom Line

    Sizable segments of Americans identify with each of the three major ideological groups on the U.S. political spectrum; however, in recent years, conservatives have become the single largest group, consistently outnumbering moderates since 2009 and outnumbering liberals by 2-to-1.

    Overall, the nation has grown more ideologically polarized over the past decade, with the percentage of moderates declining from 40% to 35% and the percentages of conservatives and liberals each rising. The increase in the proportion of conservatives is entirely the result of increased conservatism among Republicans and independents, and is also seen in Americans 30 and older — particularly seniors. The increase in the proportion of liberals is seen exclusively among Democrats as well as in all age groups.

    At the same time these shifts have occurred, Americans’ party affiliation has tended to skew more Democratic than Republican, although in 2010 and 2011, the parties were about equal when the leanings of independents are taken into account.

    Romney doesn’t have to explain his business decisions to “career politicians”.He has to explain them to the average Joe and Jane middle class voters.And if they perceive him to be disconnected with their plight, it will not be because they do not believe in the efficacy of capitalism.It will be because he is so willing to cavalierly bet $10,000 during a debate, because he seems to think earning $350,000 in speaker fees is chump change,admits to paying the equivalent tax rate of 15%,and has millions parked in off-shore Cayman Island  accounts. Seem to remember another failed Republican candidate who had no idea what a grocery store checkout scanner was  and it cost him the Presidency.And isn’t George Herbert Walker Bush one of Mitt’s heroes?Nobody has to attack capitalism to discredit Romney,he is rapidly developing the perception that he is an arrogant super rich elitist whose actions and utterances show no connection with the people whose votes he desperately needs to beat Obama!

  • jwebsmall

    Newt may have paid 31% tax on his income but he failed to mention a majority of that income came directly or indirectly from the U.S. treasury through various quasi government organizations. In fact a majority of Newt’s income over span of his career has been derived one way or another from big government.  But why are we discussing this. Is Newt against profit taking in the private sector or taking deductions?  Is Newt against these deductions or just people who take them? If he wants every one to have Mitt’s tax rate what is his beef with Mitt getting it now?   Newt asks what did Romney do/  Well one thing is for sure Romney wasn’t involved in any way with the congress that makes tax law.   If you think through Newt’s arguments you begin to realize they are often self contradictory.  I don’t question Newt’s intelligence.  I question Newt’s use of that intelligence to twist logic to serve his purpose at any particular moment in time.  I don’t like Romney.  I like Newt even less. The longer we keep Newt in this race the more we are going to live to regret it.

  • rebelyell4

    Here’s my answer; destroy Romney first. If we can’t, do not vote for him in the general election. Vote for somebody even an independent that shares your views. Do not throw your vote away to get a white progressive rather than an almost black one. They are one and the same.   Check out the Constitution party. Wait for “the Don” to announce, anything, but do not support Romney.

    Ann, you’re welcome to all the free speech in the world, but you’ve sold out.

    Newt! Newt! Newt!  He’s made a few gaffes during his campaign but to me

    The 100,000 job number is pure bull.  Most of what Romney claims comes from Staples from which he claims it’s total employment today of over 90,000.  Less than 40,000 of Staples employment occured before he left Bain in 1999 and his direct involvement in Staples had ended several years earlier.  He is claiming credit for other peoples leadership.

    Today on Fox there were two guys who were featured in the half-hour “documentary” about Romney and Bain who said they agreed to be filmed but had no idea it was about Bain. They were talking about subsequent owners of the companies they worked for which closed them down — this is not gotcha journalism, but fraud by the filmmakers. One guy said that everyone got big raises after Bain took them over and he received two promotions. That was not discussed or whatever mention of Bain was edited out to fit the message.

    Newt has publicly “demanded” the errors be corrected (wink, wink) but the super-PAC, not getting a response from the Romney campaign, is continuing to air these falsities with no changes.

    Unfortunately, too many people do not understand they have been lied to and will believe all of this schlock.

    McCain’s voting record was more conservative than liberal, and he had credits as being pro-military, anti-pork and so on. When running for prez, however, he sucked up to the press.

    The entire body of evidence of Mitt’s beliefs until about 6 years ago was dyed-in-the-wool liberalism. He was a proud, self-proclaimed progressive — that is, activist liberal. He ran to the left of Teddy Kennedy. He voted Dem and contributed to Dems. He governed as a leflty. He bought every leftist travesty of logic and fact there was.

    The only thing we know of that’s changed is his rhetoric, and that’s by necessity.

  • Huperetes

    Gingrich has jettisoned himself from consideration for my vote (although I enjoy him in the debates)  and as a Conservative way before his attack on Romney for his career at Bain Capital.  Gingrich proposed, not a fine for not complying with an individual mandate to purchase health insurance, but a bond of $100,000! or $150,000! back in 2008.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VWSGQmVh6A&feature=player_embedded

    Oh and way back in…May of 2011, Gingrich again proposed a variation on the individual mandate.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThwVp0cwOMA&feature=player_embedded
    Again, Gingrich advocated the posting of a bond.

    I don’t trust Gingrich to repeal Obamacare.

    His and Perry’s attacks on Romney’s career at Bain have undermined their pedigrees as purported conservatives.

    The investing and business planning that Romney did at Bain requires astute analysis and the high risk of losing not only his money and reputation but those of the investor groups and shareholders that he convinced to pool their money.

    Most of the companies that failed were going to fail anyway.  The skewing of facts is what is to be expected from Obama’s smear machine.

    Putting together a turnaround plan for these companies is no easy feat; Neither is reorganizing and trimming the lard off of these failed or struggling companies, nor pooling committed investors around a proposed business turnaround plan.   Any success in this type of enterprise is worthy of respect. 

    Instead, the rhetoric coming from Perry and Gingrich sounded like Occupiers decrying the “unfairness” of the free market.  The rhetoric echoed the tyranny of the egalitarianism by force of the left.

     I understand your anger — if America was truly a Christian nation; then America would look much different than it does today.

    “Ron Paul is a nutcase, who, every time he opens his mouth on foreign policy, I lean more towards voting for Obama should Paul become the nominee. I would rather go to a war over money with China then to freely allow Muslims and Shaira law to enslave this country. ”

    I’m sorry, but you come off as the nutcase here.  Feel free to be critical of Ron Paul’s polices, but your claims here are just simply stupid.

    To be clear, I also oppose Romney.

    Romney couldn’t pardon an Iraq war Veteran who made a mistake when he was 13 and shot someone with a BB gun.  The Vet needed the pardon to become a policeman when he got out of the service.  No pardon, because Romney’s finger was in the wind, and his political future was more important than mercy and justice.

    Who knows what “15% tax rate” Romney is going to do if in office.  But we do know what the good Doctor from Texas will do, because he has been calling it right for 30 years.

    I don’t support Perry. I don’t like him as governor (I live in TX) and I don’t want him as president. Like Romney, his convictions seem to follow the wind from the polls.

    I don’t like Gingrich. Pretty much the same story.

    I don’t like Santorum. Comments about supporting US terrorism in Iran to blow up scientists? Over the top and unbelievable. The President doesn’t get to blow off steam like the rest of us.

    I don’t support all of Ron Paul’s positions.  But unless you posted from your own private plane, or from in back of your Rolls, Romney isn’t looking out for your interests.  If you believe in the Constitution, then you ought not smear Ron Paul as crazy, given that is the only one in the Debates that could explain why contraception is protected under the Constitution.  Romney couldn’t.  He asked that Ron Paul take the question.

  • Jerrybear

    Don’t hold your breath.  It’s all talk at the moment.  Romney’s the establishment candidate.  The business lobby and GOP establishment like legal and illegal immigration because it’s ‘good for business’.  Translation; It’s good for flooding the labor supply and driving down American wages. 

  • Dale Hogue

    Tony, the world doesn’t revolve around you and what you value as a “Conservative Republican” nor does the world revolve around Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Paul and Romney. I’m afraid, that the world — sadly so — will be revolving around President Barack Hussein Obama and his followers from the Middle Eastern Islamic countries 
    who are doing whatever they can to give their best imitation of what they believe to be the best method for reviving the progressives who took over the political concepts of the Socialist Party’s regrouping of the Democratic Party in the late 19th and the early 20th century and again in the early 21st century.  

    Keep pushing your values – whatever they may be – but your writing of posts that warn all Republicans to not vote for anybody who is not a full-blown believer in people like Barry Goldwater and all the other true blue conservatives you can name is a
    lost cause.

    By the way, for your information, the last true blue conservative who was elected president was Calvin Coolidge. 

    I’m sorry to tell you this, but Ronald Reagan was not a true-blue conservative, in fact, he might’ve been a tiny bit to the left of old Cal on some matters.  For what it’s worth, anybody the Republicans run against the Muslim from Chicago will do the job very well by comparison. Don’t sell any of them short.

    I am not settled on any candidate yet — but will vote for GOP  — it really comes down to saving this nation and republic — ANYONE BUT OBAMA — please keep that in mind and vote your conscience in the primaries.  After that — the goal has to be to save our nation, our freedom, our safety and security and our future — this will all be gone when Barry Obama does not have to worry about re-election.

    Well said Tony. Personally I think those two would make a formidable ticket-together. They could not be stopped. Being from the Northeast I am naturally suspicious of any politician from here that claims to be a Conservative. Most of them would not know what Conservative principles were if Christ himself came down and gave lessons. Romney is cut from this same ideologically neutral cloth. Unfortunately, while I had the impression he was a moderate ( whatever that might entail), after reading the 200 page report of McCain´ś opposition research from 2007 ( admittedly I read the highlights) it is worse than I feared. He really is Obama-lite. Ron Paul is nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake and Perry has no traction. I do not know what makes An attracted to moderate to liberal types. It is a disappointment.

  • Wayne Peterkin

    I have not been a Romney supporter because I don’t think he is a conservative at all. However, I would vote for him over Obama as I would vote for anyone over Obama. That said, some of the campaign attacks are wrong, and Ann points that out rather well. Attack Romney’s proposed policies if you don’t like them, but don’t go into stuff like this Bain Capital nonsense. 

  • Mark Brickey

    Ann,
    I usually agree with you & enjoy being challenged by your thoughts, but you are WRONG with this. There are 3 points right off the top of my head:
    1. Although I agree that Mitt has done “well” in the business world, he would NOT have done so well w/o Poppa’s money & name;He lied & hid things to make many of his deals; He used foreign money to bloat then destroy certain companies, forcing them into Bankruptcy or moving to Mexico; other points that show he is not trustworthy;  
    2. He is not trustworthy as a politician/leader. He has flipflopped so much on just about any issue just to get elected for a 4 year governorship then get thrown away by any other electorate. H e will say & do ANYTHING to get elected;
    3. He’s a Northeasterner RINO. Proof? He’s form Mass & was elected gov of Mass. He “won” NH. We do NOT need another RINO – We need a solid leader who at least knows what “conservative” means. Remember? He threw us Tea Partiers & Conservatives under the BUS way back at the beginning of all this.

    Romney is NOT the guy we need in the White House. Period.

  • Dustoff

    OK. I’ll buy that.  Yet this whole STUPID thing on income it a joke.  And should be left on the (left) websites.

  • AustinAndy

    When Mr. Gingrich was doing well in December, Mr. Romney went on the attack with his  SuperPac and unleashed millions of dollars of ads which were factually lacking.  Virtually no pundit said anything about the nature of the ads.  When Mr. Gingrich returned the favor in New Hampshire, virtually every pundit criticized his ads as anti-Republican and anti-conservative.  For his part, Mr. Gingrich publicly asked his SuperPac to pull the ads and/or correct them. 

    In South Carolina, Mr. Santorum and Mr. Perry as well as Mr. Gingrich have noted their displeasure with the attack ads and their inaccuracies.  Mr. Romney has said that he cannot contact his old aides and therefore cannot control the ads.  Note the difference which Mr. Gingrich responded to his SuperPac’s inaccurate ads and the way that Mr. Romney responded by hiding behind the campaign finance law and not addressing his SuperPac’s inaccurate ads.

    Mr. Santorum has mostly refrained from attack ads.  His comment during the Monday night debate to “Stop it.” was right on the mark and was far more substantive than the subterfuge of Mr. Romney, and it was a clear and dramatic lesson for both the candidates and the public.

    If people would actually read what Ron Paul has written, rather than listening to media sound bites, they’d understand and appreciate his foreign policy.  He is not the nut case the media portrays him to be.  Five years ago I too thought Paul was goofed on skunk weed.  Since that time I have read a couple of his books and several of his articles.  He is committed to upholding the Constitution and opposed to central planning and big government.  Paul is the closest candidate to Ronald Reagan.  Unfortunately, I do not believe he has much chance of winning the vote.  If that is the case, I’ll vote for whomever wins the Republican nomination.  None of them are as worthless or dangerous as Obama.

  • docpsych34

    Newt Gingrich is Obama’s best hope for winning re-election. Thanks to a lot of stooges, like Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and a number of other know-it alls Ostupid may have a shot. Newt is the most flawed candidate in the race. Ron Paul and or Donald Trump goes 3rd party and bingo, Obummer for another term. Republicans better get behind their best candidate, which is obviously Mitt Romney, and spend the rest of the year trying to get him elected. If they don’t, It’s Obummer time.

    An answer to each of your points.
    1) The Freedoms of the Constitution to Overthrow the Constitution.
    2) “America’s enemies” were Obama’s comrades, Soviet Union, while in college.
    3) Israel is always their enemy.
    4) Weaken defenses so Obama’s Communist friends can then takeover.
    5) Defeat America using the Almighty Dollar.
    6) Communists hate free markets.
    7) Their goal is a “Brother against Brother” Civil War.
    8) Dependent on Oil dictators and people that hate us.
    9) “Hussein Obama” and his apology tours/spitting on us!

    When the man of character and principle, who stands for peace and prosperity, who receives more money from active service men and women than all other GOP candidates combined, and whose foreign policy is modeled upon the farewell speech of Washington, is called a nutcase, I suspect ignorance of both facts and history is afoot.

    Newt should change his name to chameleon, as he changes positions to match his surroundings; Santorum’s stances are just about as solid as quicksilver.

    But Tony did nail it in his second paragraph.

    The TEA party has always supported Paul. He was recognized as a true Constitutional Conservative, but most of you have never before seen one. Goldwater was the last true Conservative to win the nomination, and the lamestream media  labeled him a nutcase too.
    Instead we got L.B. Johnson, welfare, and a continuation of the slaughter of our young men.

    We are not the worlds police force. We are not an empire. We are a constitutional Republic, a nation of laws. These wars and interventions are un-constitutional. We should bring our armed forces home from all 120+ sovereign nations which we currently  occupy, and quit feeding the debt loving Banks, and other servants of the Federal Reserve.

    END THE FED!

    I never thought I’d say this, but, I have been so disappointed with Ann lately.  I always loved to hear her talk because she has always said what was in my heart without beating around the bush.  Now the people she seem to be supporting (and with her usual vigor) are a complete disappointment to me.

  • BigMark

    In the early 90′s Newt did the same thing that obama did to get elected….he trashed, he destroyed the reputation of his opponent by creating situations that were calkling into question the morals of his opponent.  ( Herman Cain vs the Chicago machine?)  He’s is trying to do that the Mr. Vanilla.  He is throwing people under the bus as fast as Clinton did to stop the Jennifer Flowers and Wahzzits Jones rumors…Do you really want this kind of a two-faced dick as a president?

  • Jerrybear

    I agree that Newt is by far the worst candidate with the most baggage.  Obama would relish the chance to have him as the GOP nominee.  The guy has proposed the most maniacal big government progressive solutions throughout his career.  Somehow a chunk of conservatives are falling for his conservative red meat schtick.  I thought elephants were supposed to have great memories.  That being said, Romney’s got some progressive skeletons in his own closet.  He talks a good game and has the chiseled looks that make him electable but I don’t have a lot of confidence that he would govern as a conservative when given the opportunity. 

  • jas

  • A_friendly_reader

    I don’t pretend to be friendly to Mittsies. With rare exception, they behave in a fashion that parallels Obamatons. I laid that out in one of the first dozen or so posts on this thread.

    Virtually any Republican who entered the race, with the possible exception of Paul, would be a better choice than Mitt, and Paul at least can be credited with 100 times more sincerity than Mr. Massachusetts.

    Mitt’s record is so fraudulent that Dems will dine on him all the way through the election. He’s gone one for four, having been shorn as many times as his Republican rivals combined (I classify Paul as a libertarian hanging onto the back bumper of the Republican SUV).

    I will hold my nose, as I’ve said here many a time, and pull the level that says Willard if he he slips his collar on the nomination.

    But if that happens, it will probably be pointless, because a good chunk of libertarians, evangelicals, tea partiers and hard-line conservatives will fall in line behind an independent like Trump and split the Republican vote.

    That likely won’t happen with another GOP nominee, but Mitt is so loathed that he’ll sink the entire ship.

    Sounds alot like the second stage of Ideological Subversion as laid out by Soviet Defector Yuri Bezmenov in the 80′s.
    Stage 1 — Demoralization

    The demoralization process in the United States is basically completed already, for the last twenty-five years, actually it’s over-fulfilled because demoralization now reaches such areas where previously not even Comrade Andropov and all his experts would even dream of such a tremendous success, most of it is done by Americans to Americans, thanks to lack of moral standards.

    As I mentioned before, exposure to true information does not matter anymore. A person who is demoralized is unable to access true information. The facts tell nothing to him. Even if I showered him with information, with authentic proof, with documents, with pictures — even if I take him by force to the Soviet Union and show him a concentration camp — he will refuse to believe it until he is going to receive a kick in his fat bottom. When a military boot crashes his butt, then he will understand, but not before that. That’s the tragedy of the situation of demoralization.

    Stage 2 — Destabilization

    The next stage is destabilization. This time the subverter does not care about your ideas and the patterns of your consumption, whether you eat junk food and get fat and flabby doesn’t matter anymore. This time — and it takes only from two to five years to destabilize a nation — what matters is essentials. Economy, foreign relations, defense systems. And you can see quite clearly that in some areas, in such sensitive areas as defense and economy, the influence of Marxist-Leninist ideas in the United States is absolutely fantastic. I could never believe it fourteen years ago when I landed in this part of the world that the process would go that fast.

    Stage 3 — Crisis

    The next stage of course is crisis, it may take only up to six weeks to bring a country to the verge of crisis, you can see it in Central America now. And after crisis, with a violent change of power, structure, and economy, you have a so-called period of normalization. It may last indefinitely.

    Stage 4 — Normalization

    Normalization is a cynical expression, borrowed from Soviet propaganda, when the Soviet tanks moved into Czechoslovakia in 1968, Comrade Brezhnev said, “Now the situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia is normalized.”

    This is what will happen in the United States if you allow all the schmucks to bring the country to crisis. To promise people all kinds of goodies and a paradise on Earth. To destabilize your economy. To eliminate the principle of free market competition and to put a Big Brother government in Washington DC with benevolent dictators like Walter Mondale who will promise lots of things, never mind whether the promises are fulfilled or not. He will go to Moscow to kiss the bottoms of a new generation of Soviet assassins, never mind, he will create false illusions that the situation is under control. The situation is not under control. The situation is disgustingly out of control.

    Most of the American politicians, media, and educational system, trains another generation of people who think they are living at the peace time. False. The United States is in a state of war. Undeclared total war against the basic principles and the foundations of this system. And the initiator of this war is not Comrade Andropov of course, it’s the system — however ridiculous it may sound — the world Communist system, or the world Communist conspiracy. Whether I scare some people or not I don’t give a hoot. If you are not scared by now, nothing can scare you.

    But you don’t have to be paranoid about it. What actually happens now, that unlike myself, you have literally several years to limp on unless the United States wakes up. The time bomb is ticking, with every second the disaster is coming closer and closer, unlike myself you will have no where to defect to. Unless you want to live in Antarctica with penguins. This is it, this is the last country of freedom and possibility.

    I don’t think Trump will run.  He just likes the media exposure.  Besides, he is not historically conservative.  I like his views on tariffs and foreign policy.  His foreign policy is the ‘F U we’re gonna take your oil’ version of Ron Paul’s.

    Well said. I was listening to Jim DeMint the other day. He said it didn’t matter so much if the candidate, hinting at Mitt Romney, is as conservative as most of us would like, the important thing is to defeat Obama. DeMint said that if a conservative Senate and Congress presents any Republican President a Bill, they will sign it. The important thing is to get a Republican elected. In politics if you’re not first, your last. At this point we’re not picking a President, we’re picking a Candidate who can win. I think that man is Romney.

    Fox News interviewed two people from the propaganda movie King of Bain who said that they were made to look like Bain caused them to lose their jobs and their health insurance and one of them had a family member who had cancer and would die because he did not have his health care any longer.

    In the interview, these two men stated that what they said was edited to make it look like Bain was the cause of their problems. It turns out that Bain had sold the company to another company before these men lost their jobs and Bain had nothing to do with it. Just more lies from the lame stream media to destroy conservatives.

  • A_friendly_reader

    That sounds totally unhinged.

  • UpLateAgain

    Romney really pooched it at the debate the other day.  The attacks on him relating to his purported ‘vulture capitalism’ are misplaced (as amply demonstrated by Ann above), but somewhat effective to the uninitiated.  Unfortunately for Mitt, his apparent inability to dynamically answer that particular rhetoric is even more damaging.  This should be a no-brainer for him, yet he still seems unable to give a good retort.  And a good retort should satisfy the uninitiated and make the savvy grin at how it will tear apart Obama when he tries to play that particular card.

    In the meantime, Sarah Palin has given Newt a defacto endorsement (saying on Hannity that if she were a SC voter, she’d be voting for Newt… and that over the next few weeks she thinks it would be a good thing if the other ‘non-Mitts’ dropped out and fell in in support of Gingrich).  Mark Levin says he would currently support Santorum IF he was voting, but has also repeatedly and pointedly criticised Mitt while challenging criticism of Newt…. in other words, if Santorum drops out, look for Levin to support Newt.  Thomas Sowell has said in essence that Newt is the only Republican candidate running that has a chance of turning back our drift to the left and of saving the economy along with our culture.

    Ann, of course, would like to see Newt drawn and quartered and his varius parts scattered to the four winds and buried in unmarked graves.  Of conservative pundits, she stands alone espousing a level of vitriol against Gingrich sufficient to curl hair within a two mile radius.

    So far Romney (who many say already has it all locked up) has but 12 delegates of the 1245 he’ll need for the nomination……. so I’m guessing it’s not quite over yet….especially with Palin going deeper and deeper into Newt’s corner each day.

    Newt’s (admittedly) unjustified attacks on Romney’s business history appears to have had its desired effect.  Romney has been stung, and seems to be backing off his unjustified attacks on Newt.  At least he is playing the magnanimous one as long as his poll numbers are ahead of Newts.  His problem is that the items he brings up on Newt have been damaging mostly to Newt’s appeal to his conservative base….. and once vetted will become old news and irrelevant to conservatives in the long run.  The BS rantings that Newt has been firing back with, will kill Mitt’s appeal to to populist voters and independents, and will be bolstered by the Democrats once they get fully involved.

    In other words, Newt’s attacks on Mitt will likely hurt him more in the long run than Mitt’s attacks on Newt.

    For me, the choice was made a while ago.  Mitt gets my full support if he’s the only one left standing…. but I’m doing what I can to see to it that he isn’t.

    candidacy, because she believes “we can’t win with a real conservative, we have to attract indepndants and open minded Dems (which DON’T exist)
    I don’t buy it. In fact history doesn’t support that idea either, Reagan did not roll over and play deadfish withliberals, and look at his victory over peanut boy (carter, fr you youn’uns)

    I don’t have proof about what’s going to happen in the future. I’m just making an educated guess based off the history of the Republican party’s love of third world immigration. They can’t seem to comprehend the damage they are doing to their own party by not putting a stop to the invasion. Hispanics will never vote in a majority for Republicans because they don’t offer the freebies and amnesty that the Dems do.

    Mitt’s inability to adequately reply to the ‘vulture capitalism’ charges are becoming noticeable.  It should not be that hard.  Just saying capitalism is a risky business with both winners and losers isn’t getting it. 

    I can’t help but think that if Newt was the recipient of that particular brand of criticism under the same circumstances as Mitt is ‘enjoying’, he’d knock it out of the park so hard that Obama would be afraid to bring the issue up in the future.

    Everything this joke does is political or crypto-political.

    There is also still a moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico for American companies, however, other countries are permitted to drill – thousands of jobs lost there, along with supporting industry jobs, etc. etc. – for no real apparent reason {…”cost to US estimated at more than $24 billion in lost oil and gas investment over next several years”…”as a result …total US employment is estimated to have been reduced by
    72,000 jobs in 2010 and 90,000 in 2011…”. This is a miniscule piece of
    his destruction, so is the pipeline — all by design and so far, child’s play
    compared to what will be coming.

    Conservatives have to stay strong, but we also have to keep the end goal in sight and then work for future leaders that ultimately exemplify our values. We can raise them up — look at the Tea Party — the only reason it is vilified by the liberal media, neocons, pre-pubescent neophytes and the unintelligent is because it is real, real people, representative and a direct result and reflection of an inept, un-vetted, inconsequential fraud like Barry Soetoro Obambi, his marxist policies and his corrupt socialistic regime.

  • Arizona_Don

    How may I ask is Romney being pushed down anyone’s throat? If Romney is the nominee it will be because he got the most votes. Anyone of the Republican candidates would be better then obama. In the case of Ron Paul, not very much but at least his goal would not be to destroy the free enterprise system, obama’s is.

    I believe there are only two candidates running that can beat obama in a heads-up “debate.” Romney and Gingrich, and Romney is questionable. Now if it were just personalties it would likely be Perry and Santorum. Both are extremely likable personalities. Or just issues I guess it could be Paul (except for forign affairs) or Gingrich with a possibility of Romney. However, if obama has proven anything during the last three years it is that he is a master of BS. He also knows all the angles to lie and cheat so it will take someone experienced in government that knows all the ins and outs. Furthermore, to overcome his (obama’s) talking points and fabrications it will take considerable experience, determination and intuition. Who ever the nominee is they must prepare for the obama spin as to the events over the last three years. Their preparation must include prepping for the obama view point. Just being logical is not enough.

    There is however, no doubt the two most experienced in getting things done and getting the other party to cooperate is both Gingrich and Romney.

    Because this is such an important election, perhaps the survival of this nation depends on a conservative winning. We, as a nation, need to take it just as serious as it really is. We need to get over the self-righteousness and selfishness and be determined to support whoever the nominee turns out to be. Even if the nominee is not our personal choice.

    It is very easy to set back and say “my dog could beat obama.” But don’t believe it, that’s not true. No one, and I mean no one will run over him in an election. This is going to be Chicago politics at its best. If you know what I mean. How could anyone expect such a corrupt person to run a legitimate campaign. So we had better quit arguing and start working together or we will cause our own demise! I once heard it said “it ain’t the voter that counts, it the counter of the votes that counts.”

    If Ron Paul (who is admittedly not a conservative) is the nominee I will support him out of desperation because the objective must be to defeat obama in 2012. Although, I have a tendency to not believe in the end of the world on December 21, 2012, it should be quite obvious to everyone who “does not vote for a living” if obama is reelected he will destroy this nation beyond recognition. Consequently, that predicted catastrophe may be obama’s reelection.

    Newt is heavily flawed. Mitt isn’t vanilla; that might apply to Santorum or Huntsman. Mitt is a total political fraud whose phoniness radiates as brightly as the sun on a cloudless day. He will be the easiest pickings Dems could celebrate.

    And he is so detested and distrusted by libertarians, tea partiers, hard-line conservatives and evangelicals that millions are likely to bolt from Mitt to an independent or third-party candidate.

    My assessment of Paul as a wing nut on foreign policy has nothing to do with media sound bites.  It’s based on his responses, from his own mouth, in debates and interviews where he has been given ample opportunity to explain his views at great length.  I have no misconceptions based on other peoples’ editing.  He is condemned as a goofball by his own words, not others’.

    As for Mitt deporting anyone, he was a best friend of sanctuary cities, which flowered in Massachusetts. In fact, as governor, he repeatedly hired illegals to maintain his estate, proving how advantageous it would be to have a president with business experience.

    He’d probably turn the entire US into an extended sanctuary city.  Then, illegals would be no problem.

    This talking point against Paul is very weak.  Paul has explained why he appropriates the pork.  It brings back tax money to his district which otherwise would be spent recklessly by the Feds.  This brings a little transparency to an otherwise corrupt system.  He is supposed to represent his constituents that elect him.  Bringing back some of the federal tax money to his constituents is really grasping at straws to find something to attack him with.

  • AustinAndy

    You clearly see that Romney’s record at Bain Capital was much better and far different than that painted by the media and the political attack ads.  Yet Mr. Romney himself seems to have a very difficult time explaining why he was successful at turnarounds and why the outcome was very much more productive than he is given credit for.  If he has such a hard time defending a very good record as a company savior and job creator, how will he do in a debate with President Obama or weather the hundreds of millions of political attack ads that the President has even now already begun in several markets?

A genuine Constitutional, Economic and Social conservative can pull all conservatives out to vote. One leg missing and we’ll have a rerun of 2008. Leftists will always seek to divide and conquer. Don’t fall for that old story again. If Mitt is a good businessman and understands the economy, chalk one up for him. If he converts to protection of life from conception to natural death, chalk one up for him. One leg remains, how is he at defending the constitution? As good or better than the rest? Then what are you all talking about? Do you believe he’ll bring the Federal Reserve to heel, Ron Paul’s pet project, or is that even possible? I believe Mitt can do the job once he’s in, but whipping Obamanation at the polls won’t be easy. BHO’s system will count every gravestone twice. Lotsa luck.

    I have to say that this election I have really investigated as much as I can all the candidates and if I was voting with my personal feelings I would have to go with Ron Paul.

    If I am voting for the man who can help the economy most, I would have to say Mitt is the choice and if I am going to go with the established republican line then Newt is my man,

    I am from PA and for no particular reason I just do not like Santorum. I probably should but I just don’t. Whats unfortunate, in all my years voting I only left the republican party once and voted for the democrat running for president. It was a big mistake.However, in my personal situation though I made more money, both in my business and in the market when Clinton was in office then i did at any other point in time. So for me this year, I am personally hoping Romney gets the nomination, but if he doesn’t I would most likely choose whomever does get the nomination. Heck I am pretty sure I would choose Satan over Obama.

  • dennydennis

    For the love of God. Ann’s constant Romney worship has completely worn me out. This is the first Coulter article I couldn’t even finish I was so bored with it. I got to the 3rd paragraph. Ann lost her soul several months ago. I don’t care if a Republican was a leader in a blue state and that explains his less than conservative actions. Liberal is Liberal. Quashing your beliefs (if you ever had any) to make a “deal” is wrong. Americans are tired of these actions.

    At least with Santorum, when I disagree with his actions he has sound reasoning for his decisions. I think he would be a million times better than ANYone else in the R primary. This is one South Carolinian that will be voting SANTORUM!

  • libnot

    You know what Ann? Since when does “20 years in private enterprise” qualify to be President? Not saying it doesn’t , but thats all that you seem to spout. whoopdy doo.

    I’m 40 years old. I have 2 young children. They will not have the same opportunities that I did. That is the saddest part of this whole disaster. I have the rest of my life to make sure that they do.

  • jwebsmall

    Amen!  I couldn’t have said it better myself.  How many times has Newt reversed his position in SC alone and accuses others of precisely what he is doing.  Just wait until he is president blaming everyone and whining.  He will be an even bigger failure than Carter and Obama combined.

  • Jerrybear

    I’m assuming you’re referring to foreign policy?

    Paul’s not perfect. No candidate is. I wish he would take a little more hawkish stance when it comes to our enemies but I just don’t get the foaming at the mouth war propaganda that the GOP currently stands for. The whole notion that we need to be fighting wars in countries half way around the world, build up their nations, and establish democracies in order to ‘keep America safe’ falls flat on its face when you look to our lawless crime-ridden southern border.

    Paul’s domestic policies are sorely needed to help restore America to its former glory. In my opinion, that outweighs the foreign policy of policing the world. With the current band of flip flopping candidates who lack principles, I feel Paul is the only one whom I can trust to carry out what he campaigns on.

    LADY ANNANN is at it again, for a man today, that is an empty suit.

    Do you think that “THE DONALD” would apologize for being a BILLIONAIRE. And when asked by some “pencil stick marxist”, what is your bracket for paying taxes? He certainly would not dodge it. As for Romney, in a soft voice, he announces that he is in the 15% bracket, meaning that he acquires his income from dividends, which is legal, and I applaud any person that gets it, but he sounds like a thief running in the night.

    But, he is so scare of the POOR PEOPLE thinking that they are paying a higher tax bracket, and he will be hated by the “little people”. He is not a leader, period. He was simply there at the right time that took advantage of the laws in making money by pooling wealthy/investments, and seeking and taking advantage of opportunities, but the reason I bring this up, is that he is not really proud of what he did.

    He will be painted fully as that modern day ROBBER BARON, and will lose the election. Without appealing with and to the blue collar masses, he will certainly lose.

    The house and senate seats will not improve if so. And all because we have a corrupted democracy. UNLESS……………………………………

    I am going to have to go for Newt.  I like Santorum, but his big spending past scares me.  Romney seems like a balanced and experienced individual, but please take a look at MassResistance, a group in Massachusetts that has had to try to clean up Mitt’s mess, after he was Governor and supported many things that certainly were not conservative!  He is weak with same-sex groups, and I believe gave money to gay pride parades.  Not sure about that but I know he has been no supporter of traditional marriage, so that would disappear under his presidency (traditional marriage I mean).  This is no small matter! 
    Newt’s handling of race-baiting Juan Williams made my mind up.  Newt has such intelligence.  He may have an ego as some say, but so what?  I want a confident President who can verbally take these liberals and race-baiters on and tie them up in their own absurd accusations.  Nobody but Newt can do that.  The others get nervous, sweat, stutter, and bluster, but Newt just handles em.  It’s beautiful to watch, and I for one, want to see someone conservative and smart, just shut the mouths of these stinking liberals that we have had to endure, lo these many years.  Go NEWT!

    After a month and a half of Pro Mitt posts, I get it…Ann is for Mitt.

  • America Or Obama

    Thanks only to his oratory superiority, the Newt Gingrich Bi-Polar Express has a fresh head of steam.
     
    But sadly, one must look back no further than last week — where Gingrich breathed new life into Obama’s dying Occupy movement with this pandering statement: “how come I lost my mortgage and you stayed a millionaire” — to understand that bombastic lines, no matter how brilliant or moving, no more define the character of the man than soaring rhetoric has ever provided one poor person a job.

    Last week, Gingrich’s lithium count spiked into the “loony lib” zone when he redefined capitalism as: “if you somehow buy something and you make sure you take all the money out of it and then you leave nothing behind for the people who originally made it exist, I think that is not a style of capitalism we want to favor”. (That scribbling noise is marxists everywhere adding Newt to their May Day card list.) http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/america-live/index.html#/v/1381399979001/gingrich-im-totally-committed-to-capitalism/?playlist_id=87651
     
    Psychologically, Newt Gingrich probably has more in common with the easily distracted, recklessly narcissistic, grand standing Captain Francesco Schettino of the now shipwrecked Costa Concordia, than with a trusted world leader capable of staying responsibly and dependably on the agreed to course .
     
    Everyone would that Newt’s inspirational words alone would erase the misery and reality of Newt’s life of character exposing failures, as much as we would that they could end Obama’s efforts to permanently enslave Americans to the nanny state.
     
    In reality, unseating Obama from a White House surrounded twenty deep by the vapid rabidly liberal media, epitomized in Williams, will take more than sublime rhetoric, no matter how masterfully elucidated.
     
    Soberingly, the line of the day that will carry the most effect on decision day, November 6, 2012, came from another old fat rich white guy; the avowed marxist Michael Moore told the New York Times the following:  “I wondered who they stole from my crew.  It was fun to hear what I have been saying for 20 years, not just by any Republican candidate, but Newt Gingrich.”

    Gladly, I share no values or principles with Newt Gingrich, as mine actually exist.

    Gingrich will lose the under 40s and women 3 to1.  Newt Gingrich has zero chance of beating Obama, zero.

    A vote for Gingrich now is a vote for Obama in November.

    Trump is totally ego-driven. What could be a bigger rush than making history and maybe even outpolling a candidate of the 2 major parties (the Republican)?

    If he gets in the race, Rahmney could be the odd man out. Perot was on his way to victory before he inexplicably stepped out of the ring.

    Trump doesn’t have to be conservative. He (or anyone) can easily prove Mitt isn’t. That leaves Trump as the conservative alternative to Obama.

    Beyond that, Mitt is dead meat as a candidate. His entire prospectus is his business background, which is proving to be very controversial. Trump has played in bigger leagues  and has far less political and career baggage. He’s more exciting and has the ability to go for the jugular (Mitt leaves that to underlings).

    Trump is just one prospective third-party or independent rival. Former Gov. Gary Johnson has already announced, I believe.

    2.  That be my family.

    3.  Friends and neighbors.

    4.  The needy

    5.  No one else is my problem.  So we won’t discuss 5.

    If you want to understand ‘greed’ then read Walt Williams last two articles on the subject.

    Freedom and liberty are about YOU.  That’s where it starts.  From there it is up to you to provide for and nurture your family, and so on down the line.  Putting 4, 3, and 2 before 1 means it won’t work.  You don’t really have liberty, you don’t have freedoms.

    However, if you use your freedom and liberty to be the best you can be, first 2, and then 3 and finally 4 will do well also.

    Americans today could not arrive at the constitution.  Our liberty is very much in jeopardy.   Europe would have lost it’s liberty twice by the mid 20th century had it not been for the U.S.  Many here look at European socialism and say it doesn’t have the consequences we speak of.  But Europeans have been living on borrowed time since 1945 having a benefactor that saved their liberty twice in the 20th century and repeatedly bailed them out even up this this past year with Greece and the Euro.  If Greece had not be propped up it would have already fallen to totalitarianism or civil war by now.  And the Euro might have already collapsed recently. We have lost control already and don’t know it.  We aren’t going to decide when we default.  Our creditors will decide that.  China is in a position to cause us to default at the strategic time of their choosing.  Europe is leaning on us and we are hock to a totalitarian state.  The situation is beyond pathetic.  And Americans aren’t willing even now to listen to the truth of the dire situation we’re in. They believe we can return to the way we were before Obama took office not realizing we have enter the end game of the FDR ponzi scheme and the progressive administrative state he laid the foundation of. Not even Reagan could save us now. All Reagan did was cut taxes and regulations which grew the economy which fed the beast allowing it to grow to its present size. If we do get one more kick of the can down the road with a revived economy but without drastically scaling back government it won’t work. Even if we cut government by 40% tomorrow all that would do is keep our debt from growing. It would even start paying it off. People can get new card credits to pay off their other credit cards for only so long. Their standard of living appears to improve in the near term. But it’s like taking uppers. Sooner or later you are going to crash. And that typically takes 3 1/2 generations for nations traveling down the route to reach the end game. We’re there now. And people think oh no we can go back to the way we were and everything is going to be okay. Wrong. We are past the point now where there is a pleasant route back.

    Ron Paul is the only one who has enough brains to beat Obama.I agree we need to beat Obama,But Rick Santorum has no chance whatsoever. Neither does Newt Gingrich , although he would be better that Mitt Romney. Mitt is really a democrat socialist running as a conservative Republican. He can’t even answer any questions without checking to see what the polls say first.Then , he asks Ron Paul for the correct answer. Really , even Mitt Romney Knows Ron Paul is the only person that is a true constitutionalist ,realistic , truthful , has good character. These people ,calling him a lunatic are really Democrats who know that he would trounce Obama in any debate. He has an excellent record of unfailing ethics and has always voted in defense of the true Constitutional American way. No matter what he says he wants to do , we all know nobody can actually accomplish everything they want to , and he will rule according to the law , and the constitution. Not by “trying to be King”,but by working with his true constituents , pointing out the fallacies of his opponents,and using his veto powers , and executive orders in the manner intended by the Constitution.We know he isn’t liked by the Liberal Media , so that’s the first thing to say “he’s the one we need”. He doesn’t want to “outlaw birth control” , overthrow the supreme court , rewrite the constitution,like some other persons mentioned here. And the Military absolutely loves him , contrary to several lies.

  • RoccoJohnson

    I don’t think Ann’s ever said Romney was all that, what she’s saying, that some here can’t seem to understand, is that Romney is the only electable Republican candidate going head to head against Obama. To win the general election Republicans absolutely must get Independents and some Democrats to vote for the Republican candidate. There is no way any of the rest of the candidates can do that. Liberals and Independents would vote for the devil before they voted for a rumpled, slope-shouldered naysayer with a bad haircut like Gingrich, or a boob like Perry who can’t even remember his talking points or Ron Paul, who scares the crap out of them. Santorum, get a clue. Romney is electable, and is Republican’s best chance to regain the White House. As Ann has pointed out numerous times, if we stand a shred of a chance of repealing Obamacare it has to be done in the next couple of years, so it is imperative that we field a candidate who can cross party lines to get elected. There’s a reason why, as some Democratic leaders have admitted, that Obama is scared to death of Romney.

    Get a clue son.

    LOL,   Here’s another reason to vote for Newt:
    CAIR blasts Gingrich for limiting hires to Muslims who renounce Shariah lawThe largest Muslim lobbying group in the United States on Wednesday condemned Newt Gingrich
    for saying he would only hire Muslims to his administration if they
    renounced the use of Islam’s Shariah law as a tool for U.S. government.

    Calling Gingrich “one of the nation’s worst
    promoters of anti-Muslim bigotry,” the Council of American Islamic
    Relations suggested the Republican presidential candidate is a
    segregationist.

    we respect them while they refuse to allow Christians to worship in Saudi Arabia, that’s something different,” he continued.

    Later in the day during a question and
    answer session in Aiken, S.C., Gingrich also called the Ground Zero
    mosque “a deliberate and willful insult to the people of the United
    States who suffered an attack by people who are motivated by the same
    thing.”

    “I think the time has come for us to have an

  • barrycooper

    Ann,

    I am a fan of yours, and understand what you are saying here.  At the same time, I would like to submit that you need to extend your range of targets beyond the Left.  Leftists are useful idiots.  The salient question is “for whom, and in the service of what goal?”

    Here is an interesting book, written by someone firmly within the “Establishment”, and approved by named sundry other members of the Establishment, in which he argues that the entire planet is, for all intents and purposes, run by 6,000 people (of which you are not one): http://www.amazon.com/Superclass-Global-Power-Elite-Making/dp/0374272107

    As I look at Romney’s contributors, they are nearly identical at the top to those of Obama.  So-called “Wall Street”, for which we are supposed by many to insert the word “Capitalists” more generally, is of course vastly overrepresented.  These people do not expect to NOT get their moneys worthy.

    Please grasp that our system is designed to transfer wealth BOTH to the Federal Government AND to unnamed power elites who are on the receiving end of Federal Reserve spending sprees, with the last worth some $600 billion, which is to say substantially more than the GDP of virtually every country on Earth.

    Further, please consider that Romney is not even remotely serious on the budget.  Yes, we will get some small gifts such as the end of Obamacare, but we are ALREADY borrowing $120 billion a month, and his big idea is to cut $20 billion a YEAR from that.  That is five days worth of borrowing.

    My case for Ron Paul–and I am no pie-eyed fanatic–I have made here: http://www.moderatesunited.blogspot.com/2012/01/open-letter-to-ron-paul-skeptics.html

    In my view it is both clear and conclusive.  All serious conservatives should rally behind Paul, as he very clearly, empirically, CAN be elected against Obama.  As I see it, since nobody but the banks is happy enough about Romney to campaign for him and do all the things the unions will be doing for Obama, I think he is actually the MOST electable candidate.

    http://www.issues2000.org/2012/Ron_Paul_Foreign_Policy.htm 

    When you study his policy, it makes a lot of sense.  He is not weak, like Carter.  He is not anti-military.  He has by far the largest support from the military of any of the candidates.  We cannot afford, nor should we try, to be the peace keeper for the entire world.  As Paul accurately states, we are hated in many parts of the world, not for our wealth and prosperity (which is vanishing), but for our invasive foreign policy.  Stop sending billions of dollars to dozens and dozens of countries, many of which are enemies of one another, and stop inserting ourselves into battles that are not ours.  Defend our borders, invest in America rather than the military complex, and let’s be great once again.  

    There will never be lasting peace in the Mid East.  The sons of Abraham will fight until the end of the world.  So let’s stay out of it until they march on Israel.  Then and only then would I favor U.S. military involvement.  Israel is our closest and most supportive ally, even more so than Great Britain.  But they don’t need us watching their back.  They have that part covered.  However, there will come a day when they’ll need us to stand by them.  If we keep spending the way we are, we will be a weak and insignificant nation who won’t be able to defend ourselves, much less any ally.

    Sorry……too long a reply.  I get wound up.

She’s a hippocrite who is lying to us stating Romney’s a conservative. I used to admire her until she sold out. Ann, look in the mirror when OBAMA gets another four years because of your stupidity in believing he’s electable. You’re whining about his BAIN association and how the Dems lied and he easily lost to Kennedy. Well you idiot, it’s going to happen again and yet you tell us he’s electable. Once again, you stupid idiot, wake up and look at the candidate who represents our values not the one you’ve decided to drop to your knees for!

    Many people did read the bigoted and racist newsletters he published and profited from that he won’t take responsibility for. So yes, we’ve read his bigoted work that was done in his name and approved by him. The irony is that he pulls an OBAMA and won’t take responsibility for them. 

    If he can’t run a simple newsletter and won’t take responsiblity then he’s not any good to us especially since those same people still surround him.He’s also a lying hippocrite by putting his earmarks in and voting no on the bill knowing it’s going to pass. Ron-Paulistas we really know who he is. A career politician who has done nothing in 20 years to help our country move forward. Actions speak louder than words and the only action we’ve seen from him are the newsletters. Whether you like it or not, there’s the proof of his bigoted ways. The fact he hasn’t done anything in 20 years shows he wouldn’t be able to work with congress. The fact he still surrounds himself with the same people who put out the newsletter tells me he may really be a bigot afterall. You Ron-Paulistas love hammering the other candidates while conveniently ignoring the most bigoted man in the race! Until he decides to come clean he’s nothing but a bigoted, racist old man who is a career politician and hippocrite by telling us one thing and doing another. 

    I love RP and his domestic policy and despise his foreign policy but it’s the Ron-Paulistas that made me decide never to vote for him. They may be his greatest strength but they’re also his worst supporters cause they’re driving us away!

    His last residence was in
    Beavertown, Pennsylvania, where he lived with Freda until
    his death on December 29, 1975. He was 64. Euell died of a
    heart attack. It was probably a result of cardiovascular
    disease complicating a pre-existing condition called Marfan
    syndrome. Marfan syndrome would have made his aorta more
    susceptible to a catastrophic bursting. Euell had a smoking
    habit and regularly, as can be seen in his writings, added
    saturated fats (bacon grease, butter, egg yolks) to his
    vegetables. In E
    u e
    l l’s
    day it was not unusual to smoke cigarettes or to add
    high amounts of saturated fat to foods. These risk factors
    combined with his hard life and lack of exercise in his
    later years (arthritis pain limited his movement)
    undoubtedly contributed to his death.

I mean the laughable smears by the PC brigade against Ron Paul, this time because he is against perpetual war in the Middle East, and perpetual foreign aid to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, etc. For this, Ron is branded by former communist and current run-on sentencer David Horowitz as a “Vicious Anti-Semite and Anti-American and Conservatives Need To Wash Their Hands of Him.” A follow-up article by the slightly less run-on but more wonderfully named David Swindle is entitled “The Anti-Semites Who Swarmed Us at CPAC and the Future of the Right.” On the other hand, also at CPAC, Bush conservative Ann Coulter said, in answer to a student question: “Dr. Paul is a very smart man and whenever he says anything I listen, unless it is about foreign policy, because I am afraid he might convince me.” Indeed, more and more Americans are being convinced by Ron Paul on peace as well as freedom, Austrian economics, and the Fed.

    No doubt.  The Democrats will have a hard time opposing Romney.  Until they can explain why he isn’t their candidate, they have little to go on.  It’s a good thing for Barack Obama that Romney didn’t run against him in the Democratic primary last time.

    More Mitt on a shingle thrown on my doorstop by a Mittsy.

    (1) Contrary to this Mittsy’s claim, I don’t even have a religious affiliation, let alone meriting the description of being “radical religious.”

    (2) That Mitt would have the steepest climb to defeat Obama is shown in detail on this and previous threads; claims that Mitt has an inside track are the concoction of the lefty media and Dem Party.

    (3) Romney talks conservative but was a self-proclaimed purveyor of progressivism his entire adult life, suddenly changing colors top to bottom 6 years ago after he targeted the White House.

    (4) Romney was a friend of sanctuary cities and hired illegal aliens to maintain his estate repeatedly while governor. There is nothing but smoke to indicate he cares about illegals running roughshod over the law and draining government programs.

    (5) “Your just as dumb” isn’t a persuasive choice of words to showcase one’s superior IQ.

    Gov. Tommy Thompson would have made an excellent nominee.

    Sen. Fred Thompson’s stage presence would have dwarfed Obama, particularly in debates.

    Sam Brownback and Duncan Hunter (U.S. sen. and rep) would have been 100 percent better than McCain. Rep. Tom Tancredo, probably ditto.

    Those are just the ones who come to mind. All far better than McCain, Romney and Giuliani — and maybe others who escape my memory at the moment.

    Re Ann’s column, I disagree that the Bain Capital flap is no big deal.  The average unread and uncaring person in the streets hasn’t a clue what a venture capitalist does, and won’t bother to listen to explanations.  From the BigO and gang, it’ll be:  “Romney, Bain Capital, Lost Jobs, Romney makes bucks, Romney is a 1%er, Romney sucks.”

    Sorry, Annie.  You can put out columns discussing capitalist finance, and the average voter just doesn’t give a hoot.  When BigO’s minions start laying it on Gov. Romney about Bain, he’s dead.

    Gotta take issue with you in the quote department, gene.

    The exact quote is “A zebra does not change its spots.” (http://irregulartimes.com/index.php/archives/2011/01/25/19-way-to-exasperate-a-liberal-lampoon-al-gore-for-something-he-didnt-say-citing-a-book-that-doesnt-exist/

    Please make sure to quote Al Gore correctly.

    I very much agree with you about principle and character, although Ron Paul’s character has taken a severe hit with revelations of the bigotry he allowed to be published in his newsletter. 

    And please don’t insult my intelligence with an assertion it wasn’t his doing. My career field is published communication. I know better.

    As a Jeffersonian, I agree with many of Paul’s principles and have voted for him. But my principles don’t include relying on a Fortress America — a concept that was outgrown 70 years ago.

    Had the United States not entered WW II when it did — which was almost too late — the world would almost certainly have been conquered by the Nazis. In the process they would have used their superiority in rocketry, jet power, nuclear fission and other weapons technology to fry the United States before taking over its remnants.

    This scenario has been outlined in considerable detail in this message board more than once in recent weeks.

    The jihadists have declared war on the West, whether or not you choose to acknowledge it. Paul is blind to that fact and all that it signals.

    Even if there were no such thing as Islam, Red China poses an existential threat to the West as well.

    Ron Paul’s vision must be integrated into public policy if the Republic is to recover. But the United States must be able to defend itself from enemies without as well as within, and that requires initiatives Paul is unwilling to accept.

    He doesn’t stand a chance of winning the nomination, by the way.

    Thank you for stating something so obvious that no republicans can understand it. I liked George Bush. Yet I should have investigated. His attitude towards getting along with the democrats in Texas should have been a dead giveaway. His romantic dream of being a “compassionate” conservative is next to impossible because our opposition to progressive action makes it so. They do not accept compromise unless it gets them closer to their goal.

    The essence of compromise is giving in about halfway and when this happens over a long period of time, all of a sudden you find yourself on the other side of the argument. Romneys very basis for his election to governor and even his run against Teddy Kennedy earlier, placed him in a position where he ended up completely opposing what we believe. In the run against Kennedy in 94, I think, he has been said to actually have been to the left of Kennedy.

    Getting to the left of Kennedy is hard to do, but after reading several items in the boston globe about that election, I believe they were right. He ran a campaign to the left of Kennedy, only Kennedy hit him hard on Bain and sunk his chances. Every candidate that comes from that area of New England has the same problem, there are simply no folks that are real conservatives at all. Thats why the Bush family is so hard to judge, they are originally from Maine. Check ot their new republican senator that replaced Kennedy. There isn’t a more democratic loyalist in the senate than he is. I remeber the hoopla when the republicans won the seat. Bet you dont see them patting each other on the back anymore, huh?

    Even being from Michican where I believe Romney spent much of his youth, it is next to impossible to find folks not strongly from the progressive side of the coin, no matter which party they belong to. Another odd story is when his dad decided to run for president. His dad was aboout 5 when he arrived from Mexico, having been born there. His dad simply payed no attention to the Constitution and figured he was qualified. Really an odd way to think.

    Having a dad that ran rambler is no claim to fame either. His dad destroyed that car company by deciding he would fight dinasaur gas guzzlers with his new cars. The Metropolitan was one of his dads greatest dreams. Dad Romney was about going green before it was even possible and thought everyone should own a metro just about like Hitler decided everyone should own a volkwagen. The trouble is, that eventually it drove the company into bankrupcy because the cars were a joke to Americans. Rambler died a slow death, but it died, about like romneys investments, after they leave, after the basic company has been changed too much to survive, they sell it and it can’t make anything work anymore.

  • joe6pack

    Me too, but he didn’t think it was very damn funny.  LOL

    Then there was the guy that told the Texas girl on their wedding day that he expected her to keep the house clean, make sure he had hot meals three times a day, keep his laundry washed and pressed, mow the lawn, walk the dog, and polish his car.

    He didn’t see any results the first day, nor the second, nor the third.  On the fourth day the swelling went down enough for his left eye to start opening a little…….
    Just sayin’……

  • picomanning

    Ann, what gives? Romney insoired Obama with Romney Care. From the National Review Online :…..The Massachusetts Health Connector Plan (aka Romneycare), like Obamacare, had the stated goal of addressing escalating health-care costs and reducing the number of uninsured people. Now, after five years in existence, the Romney health-care overhaul has failed to bring costs down, and it has also failed to increase the number of people with private insurance. As a direct consequence of Romneycare’s intrusive meddling in the private health-insurance market, health-care costs have skyrocketed in the state. Massachusetts has the highest average health-care premiums in the nation, with per capita spending 27 percent higher than the national average. Overall health-care costs in the state continue to rise at an average rate of 8 percent annually. And of the approximate 383,000 newly insured Massachusetts residents, the vast majority are enrolled in a state-run entitlement program. A shortage of providers, combined with increased demand, is increasing waiting times to see a physician. As recently as 2009, 56 percent of internal-medicine doctors no longer accepted new patients in Massachusetts….
    That does not read like a smart business idea to me. Some of us would rather die than put our nation or our state through that kind of nightmare. And far as a politician willing to experiment with social risk like this,  I consider it a way of inspiring the misgoverned to take up arms with intent to kill! I have not see any signs of change in Romney’s intellectual character. The dumbtrodden left will hate Romney for his money. Conservatives like me will hate Romney for his utterly destructive ‘compromises’. Yuck! Ann, you’re trying to support, or save a man who has lost face with conservatives. You have decided I suppose to ignore that huge Romney shortfall. Pretending Romney is not fatally flawed could be your fatal flaw.

    Very good points, and I fully concur.  I do wish that I could avoid using the old adage “the best way to predict the future is to review the past” when thinking of Gingrich, morally speaking, but I do believe that he best exemplifies my position on where our country needs to go now.

  • A_friendly_reader

    It’s an issue because so many Paulians regard their candidate to be pure. He obviously isn’t. 

    In fact, others like Rep. Jeff Flake behave with more moral consistency with regard to earmarks and pork.

    Paul either is part of the game or he’s not. Trying to have it look both ways is ethically the worst option because it makes Paul look hypocritical — which in this matter he is.

    From DrudgeReport reference:

    “Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband’s career with a single interview.”

    “She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.”

    “He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don’t have to be connected,” Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s wife of 18 years, explained.

     

    But take special note of this: “ABCNEWS suits (network executives) determined it would be “unethical” to run the Marianne Gingrich interview so close to the South Carolina Primary, a curious decision, one insider argued, since the network has aggressively been reporting on [all] other candidates.”

    So what is the story again? How the media prefers Romney? It sure sounds like they are prefering Gingrich, over all other candidates, since they were quick to pounce on them….not so with their boy Newt –the true establishment RINO candidate.

    The ex-wife has said Gingrich proposed to her before the divorce from his first wife was final in 1981. Her marriage to Gingrich ended in divorce in 2000. Gingrich admitted he’d already taken up with Callista Bisek, his third wife.

    Gingrich has said he has no relationship with his second wife.  (What is the PC term?  Truth challenged?)

    Beyond not being aggressive enough, Romney did not so much have a hard time defending his record at Bain than he was given a hard time defending that record. Gingrich’s major scoring points during the debates have not been against Romney. Yet, Romney would do well to read and heed your observation.

    Romney will do, at least, equally as well as Gingrich in a debate against Obama.

    Try this for History,
    Romney signed and suported Legislation in MA for Gay Marriage. Now he opposes gay marriage.
    Romney sgned pro Abortion legislation as Gov. Now he says he’s Pro Life.
    This change came from pressure from LDS CHurch, who Mitt(ens) was embarressing
    as he touted his Mormanism, while being Pro Child Murder.
    Mitt(ens supported TARP and Pres Bush when he needed to abandon capitalism to save capitalism.
    Mitt(ens also supported Climate change, then backed off that issue when it was clear
    the People do not.
    Romuls also suported Cap and Trade until the people spoke very clearly, we don’t support
    Cap and Trade.

    In the Bulls*** Department, a businessman can’t hold a candle to OBAMA. ‘Cause I gotta tell you the truth, folks. When it comes to bulls***, big-time, major league bulls***, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims:OBAMA. No contest. No contest. OBAMA. OBAMA easily has the greatest bulls*** stories ever told.

    Think about it. OBAMA has actually convinced people that there’s such a thing as HOPE and CHANGE — And an all powerful government that watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the government has a special list of things they are going to do for you so you will vote for their ‘party’. And if you fall for any of these things, he has a special place, full of free health care with jobs and free food for all with equaility and pain and suffering for all white Republicans.

    But He loves you.

    He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle money! OBAMA takes in billions of dollars, his appointees and party members pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullsh*t story. Holy Sh*t!

    No he should’nt. There is no reason, Fly boy(me) to grunt like you…….If your thinking a bad thing you might want to take a look at this. I know you’re tempted the way things are going for you guys but the faces in the ranks have a lot since our day. It will turn out very poorly.

         Thank you, many more to come.

  • Guest

    So, if the media suppresses this story so “it won’t affect the South Carolina primary” who are they siding with?

    They had no problems reporting on Cain, Perry, Paul, Romney, Santorum, Pawlenty, Bachmann,  at an inconvient time which would affect a primary or caucus.  Why are they favoring Gingrich?

    Nancy Pelosi claims she wants Obama to go against Romney.  Sure she does.  (sarc)  This is the last thing they want.  Gingrich has so much baggage, and is so unethical, he would be easier to defeat than Ron Paul.

  • UpLateAgain

    I’m confused…. does DFN mean “Dickless Fairey Nazi” or “Dumb Funkin’ Nazi”?

  • joe6pack

    Lester the Molester…liking that commie propaganda, huh?

    He didn’t mention Ron Paul because he likes Ron Paul almost as much as he like Obama.

    You cuckoo birds of a feather flock together.

  • jas

    It’s not a picture of Barney Frank trying to teach Rachel Muncher how to handle a teabag, is it?

  • Guest

    Marianne Gingrich has barely spoken this campaign cycle, and the fact that Gingrich has a messy personal past is well known.

    But based on her comments in the past about their relationship – Marianne Gingrich has said her then-husband called to ask for a divorce by phone while she was visiting her mother for her birthday in Ohio, and while he was leading the charge against Bill Clinton over Sexgate – it seems unlikely that this is going to be a positive thing for Gingrich at a time when his candidacy is surging.

  • docpsych34

    Your argument falls apart by observing the facts. The fact is Mitt Romney is winning. If one were to go with your logic, Mitt Romney should be losing badly. You may not like the guy, but a lot of people obviously think he has the stuff necessary to win a National Election and a majority are voting for him.

  • Guest

    The network is arguing over whether it is ethical to release the interview before the primary? What is unethical is to do what they did with Hermain Cain and now Newt by saying they have something really really horrible and then not just putting the evidence out for us to judge. I am really sick and tired of our “main stream” agenda driven media outlets. Just report and let us decide.

  • MyronJPoltroonian

    My point, my dear Horatio, is jut this: “Ad Homonym is as Ad Homonym” does. Whether it’s BrObama’s wife, or Newt’s, or anyone else’s. Unless they are ashamed of America a’forehand, it’s not important.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PXJNEKRBY32PRATWMUWR6T4IT4 eddie m

    I’ve not been an ardent Romney backer..  but the attacks on his wealth and business dealings are an attack on capitalism, and while annoying when coming from democrats, are infuriating when coming from Republicans.   Romney made good business decisions, and made money, demonstrating what?  That he understands the economy?  that’s supposed to disqualify him?

    I’m ashamed of the republican candidates for making this an issue..  attack his flipflops, nail on Romney-care, and all the rest.. but lay off attacking capitalism…    it’s inane.

    If ABC were trying to protect Noot, they would not have said they have dirt on Noot until after the vote, if at all.

    If ABC is trying to tar Noot with out the goods to do the job, they would make dark suggestions they have dirt. Voila!

    If ABC did NOT want Mitt to win, it would be taking on any of these issues in a probe of Mitt’s mental stability:

    While hiking down along the border this morning, I saw a Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River . He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying.Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back. If they didn’t get help, they’d surely drown.Being a responsible Texan and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff ‘s Office and Homeland Security.It is now 4 PM, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded. I’m starting to think I wasted two stamps.

  • UpLateAgain

    Eddie…. Newt’s not attacking capitalism.  That’s the spin Mitt and the Country Club Repubs want you to believe.  Newt’s attacking Romney… the individual.  And he’s doing it because Romney attacked him.  And it’s working… even if it’s BS.  Newt’s numbers are up 16 points in the past week.

    If not for Ross Perot Bush would have beaten Clinton going away. But, I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a spoiler being Obummers path to re-election. I think Donald Trump, who has been a Democrat, may be setting that up. And, naturally Ron Paul who has done it in the past.  We saw that tactic with Harry Reid and the fake T-Party candidate. I think to win over the Democrat cheat Machine, Republicans are going to have to win by a big margin.

    Reading your post, I can conclude that you have never considered voting for Romney. All the false or exaggrated reasons you State Ive hear a thousand times from Rick, Rick,Ron, and Newt. These reasons are still bogus or exaggrated. I will be voting and campaigning for Romney. He is the best equipped and most capable to be President and produce tangible results. . Newt is a smart man, alas not as smart as hed like you believe. Trouble maker, traitor to his collegues, ignores the voices of anyone else, his way is alway the best and everyone else is wrong. Arrogant egotist describes him. All the info he is whinning about just happens to be true, He claims others say it is wrong but cannot dispell the truth himself. If you are conservative, Romney reflects your values. He certainly reflects mine. Santorum is a great guy, doesnt have all the creds to be President. We have one arrogant President now, Newt will be another. Nothing gets done effectively when you insist on being the top dog even when your not.

    What did I say that smears him?

    1. There were racist bigoted newsletters printed under the Ron Paul name. TRUE
    2. Did he make money off them: True by his own words on FOX but he did say it wasn’t millions which I believe. 
    3. Does he still have the individuals who worked on his newsletter on his campaign: That I’m not sure of. 
    4. Did he have earmarks and vote no on the Bill knowing it would pass and he’d get his earmarks? TRUE 
    5. Has he passed anything of note in his 20 years to help conservative America in Congress? No

    Continue your blathering but until he properly addresses those newsletters and takes responsibility for them he’s nothing but a closet racist in my book. Until he does what’s right, I go by his actions. His actions tell the world he’s a racist and a career politician who has not accomplished anything of significance.

Think again before you vote for 2 debates or 4 years of a President who gets things done, efficiently, effectively. You cannot pull the wool over Romneys eyes on economic matters.

    Romney has proven to be a flip-flopper who will say anythign to be POTUS. Campaign all you want but many of us will stay home but if anything, Newt has shown he’s a smarter man than Romney and able to handle OBAMA whereas all we’ll get out of Romney is but, but, but, but…

    What kind of psychosis obscures the fact that the news media have been Borking Noot since 1994?

    They’ve been targeting the soft spots in everyone’s history but Mitt. They can’t ignore the stupid remarks he makes like trying to bet $10K or laughing off $400,000 in speaking fees. But they’re carefully waiting until the nomination to go after Romneycare, his hiring of illegals, his “dark” history toward welcoming blacks in his church and his incredible shape shifting.

    Just like McCain.

    I’ll try to talk in short words.
     If ABC were trying to protect Noot, they would not have said they have dirt on Noot until after the vote, if at all.
     If ABC is trying to tar Noot with out the goods to do the job, they would make dark suggestions they have dirt. Voila!

  • planeboy

    It’s a parrot….every one knows a jackass can’t type….no wait….

    Can’t defend his jobs record?  Neither can he.

    Shall I go on?

    A couple of scandals?  This time the nominee (whoever he is) will surely talk about things like Ayers and Rezko, Wright, and others.  (Did I mention Blagoyevich?)

    Did you forget to hear the news from respected men in the business world? Newts 27 minute  film purchased from a documentry film maker is completely false! The men interviewed by Megan Kelly and Oreilly said the film was distorted. They both recieved raises and promotions when Bain was managing the Co. Bain did not close their co. A Canadian  Co that purchased it did. Romney is an honest businessman that you refuse to believe because of your own bias. He will make the best President because he has the training, knowlege and ability to do the Job. I definately will hire him.

  • AustinAndy

    “suggestions” is three syllables.  He might not get that. Maybe use the word hints.

    The same people (posters here on H.E.) who supported McCain, are now supporting Gingrich.

    You were warned by many of us who knew better.  (I, for one, worked on McCain’s Arizona senate campaign, before he ran for president. I knew his true character.  His many flaws.)  But you would not listen.  Can you lay aside your prejudice long enough to search out the truth?

    For those others who despise Romney because of his religion:  Does your love for your country not exceed your hatred and prejudice againt Mormons?

    You nominate Gingrich, the day after the election when Republicans loose the House, and Newt looses in an historic landslide, will you see it then?

    I doubt anything I wrote will change your opinions.  But I can at least try.

    I believe Santorum is the most conservative candidate in the race.  But, if I had a choice between Newt and Mitt, I’d go with the one whose wife trusts him.

    Obama and the Democrats will slaughter us in the Fall if you succeed in nominating Gingrich. 

    Santorum / DeMint 2012!  But not Newtbama.

    So one day ol’ Melbo is walking by a pet store, and a parrot sitting out front says, “Awk..You sure are stipid” as he passes.  Next day, same thing.  Day after that, same thing again.  So ol’ Melbo goes into the store and complains to the owner, telling him if the parrot calls him stipid again, he’s going to sue.

    The next day as Melbo passes the store, he slows down to give the parrot a chance to insult once more.  Only the parrot says nothing.  So ol’ Melbo stops right in front of the parrot and just stares at him.  But the parrot says nothing.  So finally Melbo turns to walk away, gets about 3 feet and hears the parrot behind him say, “Awk…You know.”

  • UpLateAgain

    You clearly haven’t spent much time here if you think the supporters of McCain now support Gingrich.  Pretty-much 99% of the folks here that support Gingrich were ADAMANTLY opposed to McCain, who they saw as a RINO of the first order.  If anything, it’s the current Romney (who, by the way, the conservatives here also see as a RINO) supporters that supported McCain  You got it just back-asswards.

  • WillWink

    Now let me see. . . can we actually trust anything that you have to say with regard to Mitt Rhombus?

    You have made a second career of trying to gloss over his liberalism.  You have zero credibility on the subject.  Indeed, you have totally discredited yourself as a conservative.

    Just for the record, point has never been that capitalism is bad.  Of course, conservatives do not believe that.  Even so, anyone who has spent any amount of time in the rough-and-tumble business world knows (and knows quite well) that men of bad character are not rare in that world.

    Given Mitt Rhombus’ rank dishonesty in the world of politics, I would not be at in the least surprised to find that he had demonstrated similarly bad character as a businessman.  A rogue often proves his rogishness in multiple spheres of action.  A man who abuses helpless animals, for example, is often found to have abused wife and children, too.  To thine own self be true.

    By the way, there is a documented case of Mitt Rhombus willfully mistreating his dog.

    Falls apart? You haven’t touched my argument about Mitt’s prospective nomination triggering a third-party bid.

    Mitt is ahead in the polls, thanks to his so-far unlimited funds; relative softball treatment by the press while they savage all of his opponents; a skillful shadow dance by Dems that they fear Rahmney; and his ability to consolidate liberal, “moderate” and Dem support (especially where any Dem can vote in a GOP primary) whereas conservatives split their support among four, six or eight opponents)

    The fact that uninformed and gullible Republicans who know nothing of Mitt’s background believe he’s the best candidate hardly makes him one.

    I’ve shown Mitt is the worst candidate to select, and you think you’ve refuted me by saying he’s gulled the most people at the moment and has the most momentum.

    I lost track long ago of the times I’ve said Mittsies can’t address the lack of substance in their boy, and that truism just keeps playing like an endless film loop.

    Even 97 to 98 percent of Coulter’s own fans reject her Mittsyphilia, as has been demonstrated here repeatedly.

    I’ve seen a couple dozen episodes now. Some are as good as any war depictions on TV. Some aren’t as good.

    You’ll be gratified to know that “Combat!” is followed by “Twelve O’Clock High” — with lots of visuals of B-17s and some other warbirds, but the action sequences are actual WW II film. Grain, black and white, shaky.

    They were worth more as scrap metal. Planes, tanks, ships, artillery, whatever. Lots were sold to allies in different continents and eventually made their way back here.

    I visited a guy north of Chicago who had acres and acres of heavy warbirds in a field. Fuselages, radial engines on blocks, flying surfaces, various whatevers, all rusting away. Most numerous were P-47s Thunderbolts.

    I got a report last year of someone with all kinds of war surplus stuff in the same general area, but not restricted to aircraft.

    With all of the experience he has in debates (including 2008) , why can’t Romney articulate a concise  and easy to understand explanation regarding venture capital companies in general and  Bain in particular? If he could, maybe he could put the Bain criticism to bed. It keeps coming up because he can’t explain it sensibly so people can understand it. If he can’t do that now, how in the world is he going to debate Obama successfully?

    It has not been a fair primary. Too many not interested in saving America want Romney as the Republican running against Obama. 

    Since it has not been a fair primary thus far, votes should be for Gingrich. We all know why. 

    That includes Santorum and Perry not appealing to a large number of voters. 

    Gingrich does and the only one capable of stopping the machine behind Romney.

    Now is not the time to pretend to be cute with the vote your value or conscience when Gingrich has shown true Conservative values and confronting the liberal media, Republican curia and saving America.

    Vote for the one that can stop Romney and beat Obama. That’s Gingrich.

    That is his change on abortion is the most believable. Still not very believable though. The man after he suddenly became pro choice helped make Planned Parenthood in Mass more powerful. That doesn’t sound like a real change to me. His gun control, tax and spend, Romneycare record only gets worse from there. Your right in the end the only two real choices is between Newt and Santorum. The problem is they are dividing up the conservative field. 

    I am not sure what Anne’s worship of Romney stems from. I remember her complaining after Obama got elected that is the Party’s own fault for nominating someone that wasn’t remotely conservative.  Now she is pulling for the party to do the same thing. I am not sure if it is because of her Christie worship( Anne being conservative by New Jersey standards doesn’t make you a real conservative) or because in the end she would like to see Obama reelected because it means more books sales for her.

  • A_friendly_reader

    That’s called “deflection.”

  • A_friendly_reader

    Sorry, Reno, but Gingrich is a minefield. We don’t know what all surprises lurk in his background, like the Fannie Mae (or Freddie Mac) millions or the enormous Tiffany’s bill.

    He used donations to pay himself off rather than to advance his campaign. He almost bit the dust because he couldn’t hold together a simple campaign staff.

    The only thing to be certain about is that no matter how troubled he may be, he’s got to be a better catch than Mitt.

    Santorum is safer in terms of disruption and he’s a lot cleaner. Plus he’s considerably more likeable — that’s important — and he hasn’t suffered two decades of beating at the hands of the press. Also, he doesn’t appear to be weighted down by personal and political scandal, both of which Noot seems to own — and appearance is reality.

    Noot’s a better debater, but Obama won’t agree to more than 2 or 3 debates, and most or all will be designed to play to his strengths, including likeability and smooth delivery. Bear in mind that the Kennedy-Nixon debates were won by JFK in the view of TV watchers and by RMN in the opinion of radio listeners. 

    There’s a risk to not providing a united anti-Mitt front, but there’s a risk in narrowing down the field so far that there’s no one left if Noot implodes.

    Even Perry should stay in at least through South Carolina. Gingrich and Santorum should work out some arrangement behind the scenes for someone to drop out and support the other if a certain threshhold of support is reached by one or the other.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Tom-Schneider/100000600285856 Tom Schneider

    Wrong on several accounts wdelpilar. The newsletter was on autopilot while he worked as a surgeon. He asserts he did not write the passages and repudiates their sentiments. Everyone that knows Paul in the least says the writing is completely out of character for him. The head of the Texas NAACP backs Ron Paul.  Nevertheless Paul did accept responsibility for the letters since they were was published under his name. If that’s the most irresponsible thing Paul’s done (and what more has ever been found) have you no better attestation to incomptetnce of the man that that?

    By the way the mystery writer was identified and he is a professor at a SF Bay area university. His writings have some of the exact same phrasing as the letters so there is little doubt. You’ll find this with a google or two and you can judge for yourself.  Paul’s character is unassailable so far, and it shows that he harbors less rancor than any person I’ve observed on the US political scene with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan.

    Glad to you your values support repeated adultery and kissing up to  Pelosi !  Newt gets 1.6 Million for “consulting” and Santorum millions from lobbying.  Santorum also voted against right to work laws.  Romney seems to offend you and the other prejudice anti mormons because he made money as a capitalist!  When Nutty Nut and Wild Rickey make deals with democrats they are being realistic but when Romney does the same thing with a state legislature that is 85% democrat he sells out?  With that type of logic and IQ you should support Perry

    Saying Newt is anti-capitalist because he attacks the way Romney approaches capitalism is no different from saying he’s racist because he attacks the way Obama approaches governance.  Both are misdirection.  Neither has any validity.

    Sherry: although I do have a preference I will, as I said, support whoever is the nominee, any way possible. It is imperative we replace obama. Ordinally I thought Perry might be a good choice, but he managed to convince me he wasn’t with his refusal to complete the border fence. Obama has been trying, for three years now, to overwhelm and destroy our capitalist free enterprise system. With intent to replace it with a form of fascism with himself as permanent totalitarian dictator. Consequently, obama is the one that convinced me he had to be voted out in November, 2012. I did not vote for Clinton but could accept him because he was not an evil man, just a liar. Obama is both evil and a conniving compulsive liar! McCain was not my choice in 2008 but I voted for him because, I thought obama was just exactly what he turned out to be. A self centered do nothing nobody who would be over his head as a janitor. It is plain to me as it should be to everyone, obama is out to destroy this great nation.

  • ehaynes

    So, you are an adulterer, right? You need to be to share Newts Values. He did not keep his most sacred promise, twice. How do you expect him to keep his oath to the constitution?

    And Santorum supported Arlen Specter over Toomey. So much for his conservative values,

    Romney is faithful to his wife, goverened the bluest state in the US, had an 85% democratic legislature, vetoed over 800 bills including 4 vetoes of the Mass. Health care law, created billions of $$ wealth, cut taxes 19 times in Mass., saved the 2002 SLC Olympics, supports the 2nd amendment, IS pro-life. Yup I’m voting Romney!!

  • shellbiz10

    Could this be why Ann is for Romney (a segment from Log Cabin Republicans website): 

    “. . . Governor Mitt Romney has established himself as a candidate who can unite Republicans and a clear threat to Barack Obama in November,” said R. Clarke Cooper, Log Cabin Republicans Executive Director. “Governor Romney was consistently clear in the debates that he opposes discrimination based on sexual orientation. While he continues to support a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality – a position Log Cabin strongly opposes – he is also on record saying that such an amendment has been tried, rejected, and is unlikely to ever succeed. Romney has also taken a position that the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ has been settled, and he would not seek to reinstitute the ban on open service.”  Remember, she spoke at the gay event HOMOCON in 2010 an act considered unconscionably against conservative principles by WorldNetDaily who then dropped her from their “Taking Back America conference. 
    Has she bought into the gay agenda and that’s why Romney is so palatable to her?

    It is clear now that Ann has a hard on for Romney.

    Romney is the GOP candidate.  Newt does not have a chance.  Neither does Paul.Romney will never be able to beat Barry.Unless unemployment gets to 10%.  Ain’t gonna happen.  (Even if it does [and actually already is], Barry will continue to manipulate the data.)He is the Food Stamp Prez who has half of Americans hooked on welfare.  He has all the stupid vote, which is a huge voting block in this country.Further, Romney is no more a Republican than McCain.  The Tea Party is going to stay home on 11/6 and focus instead on unthrowning Harry Reid.This will be an easy victory for Barry.

  • JiminGA

    I continue to be amazed at all the conversation about whether Bain Capital was/is a moral enterprise.  The real question is: when he ran against Kennedy he claimed to have created 10,000 jobs and after leaving Bain that has become 100,000.  Romney is prone to making claims with no detailed supporting evidence, just like a career politician.  All he wants to talk about is Staples.

    Platitudes and generalities is what we get.  Where’s the beef, Mitt?

    If Obama was born in Hawaii, why did it take him four years to finally produce a birth certificate? Is that how long it took to compromise a bue-row-c[r]at (I dare anyone to try and revoke my poetic license!) so as to come up with a ‘valid’ document?

    Don’t you understand that Mass. was exercising their states rights when their legislature passed healthcare?   Or do your values hold that the executive is solely responsible for what the legislature (the will of the people) passes???  Or do your values hold that the (one) executive should veto the will of the people??? Consevatives know that states rights are very important to us…honor what Mass. did with health care, even if it does not reflect your values.

Or they will deflect or ignore.  “They WILL SELDOM IF EVER OFFER ANY BACK-UP TO SUCH CLAIMS. They will virtually never show how something was taken out of context or has been doctored or misrepresented. TO ASK FOR S OURCING AND SUBSTANTIATION IS FUTILE.”

    Balanced the MA budget, reduced property taxes, negotiated curbs on how far Romneycare would go (these have since been done away with by O’s buddy Deval and we now have the mess we have in MA today) the list goes on and on,  Just because you here otherwise does not mean it is true.

    Let’s see,
    HE balanced the budget?  With raising tons of fees,  capital gains tax increases, sales tax on internet purchases, etc.  he also reduced compensation to municipalities for state mandates.  That is how he ‘balanced’ the budget.
    Property taxes went up almost 26% under Romney.

    Why do you suppose that is, TooDamned? Why would self-proclaimed conservatives have fascist icons as avatars?

    Oh wait, don’t tell me… Is it because Ann Coulter and Patrick Buchanan are secret liberals?

Why don’t you just go back to Redstate… you’ll find plenty of preachers who are still likewise in in the dark about Romney there.

    I saw a guy on TV defending Obama’s increasing the food stamp program to cover 46 million people.

    He was using the morality angle.

  • A_friendly_reader

    First off, I see a long string of rebuttals, and it’s getting longer. I can’t write 5 times faster than all of you combined. So I probably won’t be able to answer all.

    I have no argument with anyone who believes that morality and immorality abound or that our nation teeters on the brink because of immorality.

    I’ve been very clear about this point.

    I don’t know what you mean by “your morality.” Drug laws aren’t about establishing what’s moral but about legislating morality, as Prohibition was.

    And with posts lined up before me like, um, posts, I can’t get lots of detail about particular laws.

    Jefferson and Adams didn’t crusade for Prohibition, even though Adams lost multiple family members to the scourge of alcoholism.

    I don’t remember every saying “pot is fine” though I do believe it exacts a tiny fraction of the toll of alcohol.

    The difference is that Clinton committed perjury twice about it, suborned perjury about it, and lied to every American about it.

    Well, there is a confusion here for sure.

    Not the same thing.

    Quote from John Adams

    The nature of the encroachment upon American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer; it eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners, and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity and frugality become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness, and downright venality swallow up the whole of society.”

  • A_friendly_reader

    The best I can do is offer Ambrose Bierce’s definition of moral (adj): “Conforming to a local and mutable standard of right. Having the quality of general expediency.”

    Here’s his definition of immoral: “Inexpedient. Whatever in the long run with regard to the greater number of instances men find to be generally inexpedient, comes to be considered wrong, wicked, immoral.”

    I somehow wrote down the definition of “impartial” by mistake. So as not to have wasted the effort, here’s the definition: “Unable to perceive any promise of personal advantage from espousing either side of a controversy or adopting either of two conflicting opinions.”

    While I’m on a roll, here’s more from the same page:
    “Idiot”: A member of a large and powerful tribe whose influence in human affairs has always been dominant and controlling.”

    Finally, back on point: “Impiety”: “Your irreverence toward my deity.”

  • westoast

  • Ribbey

    You cannot effectively banish immoralty with laws. God protects his own when they are lied against,he promises that to those who trust his judgement above all else. Laws can keep order in a society and provide protection via the freedom to persue happiness as long as you do no harm to others.

    That line of reasoning can be used to justify any imaginable abuse by government — and in fact probably has been.

    Everything I eat and every inhalation and exhalation can be interpreted as visiting harm on someone or something in some way or another.

    Also, I think that your detractors on this (including myself) really mean that the government should legislate moral behavior.  Actually, paying attention to the rigorous semantics of it moraliTY is impossible to legislate as this is pretty much a matter of the heart and mind.  However, I believe that one can actually be an immoral person yet, behave as if they WERE moral.

    “I never said the Commandments called for legislating morality by law, but do you know of one that would be harmful to you as a law?”

    I think, but I’m not sure, that you’re asking me if I know of a governmental law, based on a Commandment, that would be harmful to me.

    Yup. Several if not most. Starting with #10:

    “Thou shalt not covet anything that belongs to thy neighbor.” I tend not to covet but there are people close to me who haven’t overcome that strange glitch. I would hate to see them prosecuted and penalized.

    How about “Remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy”? I could get in a lot of trouble with that.

    And so on.

    Benton County, Arkansas

    Ten years ago, Benton County was a little boating secret in the Ozark Mountains. The secret’s out. Benton is the third-fastest- growing county in the United States, due in large part to the clean environment, improving economy and accessibility of 30,000 acres of boatable water.

    “We’re known for our smooth clear lakes around here,” says Kevin Callahan, owner of Horseshoe Bend Marina on Beaver Lake. “There’s always a bunch of recreational boating going on, and a little diving too.”

    Beaver Lake, which stretches 90 miles, is the most popular spot for boaters, and residential development has exploded there. Eagle’s Bluff, for example, has recently acquired 2,355 lakefront acres on which to build houses. To top it off, the boating season is pretty much year-round, dipping only when a “blue norther” rolls in.

    Yes Jerry, but you’re not considering what I said to go along with it. I said morals, the lack of which would bring harm upon society.

    When I asked you if you knew of one that would harm you, I was asking in terms of God’s laws, not government’s, and yes, all of them will harm you for your disobedience, but that’s your business.

    CHRISTIAN VALUES!

    Marianne Gingrich, Newt Gingrich’s Ex-Wife, Says He Wanted An ‘Open
    Marriage’ (VIDEO)

    First
    Posted: 1/19/12 11:19 AM ET Updated:
    1/19/12 01:10 PM ET

    So, it seems that one part of
    that juicy ABC News “bombshell” interview with Marianne Gingrich
    concerns one of the “big ideas” that Newt Gingrich, hive of constant
    innovation, had during the period of time the former House Speaker was out of
    office: he wanted Marianne, his second wife, to enter into an “open marriage” arrangement, so
    that he could continue to consort with Callista Bisek. (You know, the third
    wife that introduced him to Catholicism.)

    ABC’s Brian Ross interviewed
    Gingrich about the matter:

    GINGRICH: I said
    to him, we’ve been married a long time. And he said, yes, but you want me all
    to yourself. Callista doesn’t care what I do.

    ROSS: What was he saying to you,
    do you think?

    GINGRICH: He was asking to have
    an open marriage, and I refused.

    ROSS: He wanted an open marriage.

    GINGRICH: Yeah, that I accept the
    fact that he has somebody else in his life.

    ROSS: And you said?

    GINGRICH: No. No. That is not a
    marriage.

    Of course, to a certain extent,
    this is something we’ve already basically known. Let’s recall that in the
    August 2010 Esquire profile of Gingrich, Marianne offered this
    account of their marriage’s last days:

    Early in May, she
    went out to Ohio for her mother’s birthday. A day and a half went by and Newt
    didn’t return her calls, which was strange. They always talked every day, often
    ten times a day, so she was frantic by the time he called to say he needed to
    talk to her.

    “About what?”

    He wanted to talk in person, he
    said.

    “I said, ‘No, we need to
    talk now.’”

    He went quiet.

    “There’s somebody else,
    isn’t there?”

    She kind of guessed it, of
    course. Women usually do. But did she know the woman was in her apartment,
    eating off her plates, sleeping in her bed?

    She called a minister they both
    trusted. He came over to the house the next day and worked with them the whole
    weekend, but Gingrich just kept saying she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a
    Chevrolet. “‘I can’t handle a Jaguar right now.’ He said that many times.
    ‘All I want is a Chevrolet.’”

    He asked her to just tolerate the
    affair, an offer she refused.

    So, the new wrinkle here is that
    Marianne Gingrich is characterizing this as a desire on Newt’s part to have an
    open marriage, rather than just have his wife tolerate his affair on the side.
    In many ways, this is a distinction without a difference, though I suppose it
    now makes a lot of his new demonstrations of Catholic conversion to be …
    well, I suppose the phrase we’re using these days is, “pious bologna.”

    Newt Gingrich has yet to weigh in
    on these new allegations from his ex-wife. In the past, he’s written off his
    infidelities as events that occurred while he was too busy loving America.

    UPDATE: There’s been a mad dash to break these
    Marianne Gingrich scooplets, and the Washington Post has their own interview with
    Marianne Gingrich on the matter of this “open marriage.” (This is
    the “exclusive print interview” with Marianne Gingrich, by the
    way.)

    The fun part is that we learn
    that the day after Newt Gingrich asked Marianne for a divorce, he gave a
    lecture to the Republican Women Leaders Forum titled, “The Demise of
    American Culture” in which he decried the way liberals “talk about
    values,” suggesting that they would not prefer that “young
    people” to “learn that George Washington was…A man of standards, a
    man who earned the right to be father of this country?”

    As Marianne Gingrich told the Post:

    “How could he ask
    me for a divorce on Monday and within 48 hours give a speech on family values
    and talk about how people treat people?” she said.

    David,

    That seems to be what you are running for.

    Incidentally, I, and I am sure many others are flagging every f bomb, every sexual description you have degraded this site with.

  • ^TDO^

    Lonesome summed it up.

    There are many immoral things, mostly thought and vices and such that are immoral but do not impact others.

    This whole thing as  I recall started with abortion.  Abortion is immoral.  I don’t think anyone would argue with that.  And yet it has been given a go ahead by the government.  And it does impact others.  It is murder. 

    My only problem with government is when they condone, through law, immoral acts. 

  • 1LonesomeDove1

    It’s your right to put a bullet in your own head too.

    David,

     I don’t know how old you are, but…

    Based on your described lifestyle tonight, I honestly believe I will outlive you. 

    That’s really sad, but probably true.

  • A_friendly_reader

    I read Wilson and Webster as calling for compatibility between morality and law, not as urging that morals (like the Ten Commandments) be adopted as statutes.

    To use a contemporary example, marriage should be between 1 man and 1 woman.

    Demon Rum has long been regarded as sinful/immoral, but how many founders advocated its banning?

    Franklin’s statement could be interpreted as a call for legislating morality, or as a call to more informal action. He spoke of “encouragement,” not of commanding or regulating.

    Sounds like he was preaching.

    I have a collection of bullets he can choose from a gift from me

    No one is oppressing you.  I flagged you on a privately held site.  If they think your language is beyond the pale as do I, then they will remove your comments as they have before.

    You said I am at least coherent when I post. I’ve been told I’m least coherent when I post.

    Maybe I’m most coherent when I post least.

    Now what were you saying about not finding logic or reasonable sense?

    I can’t tell specifically what you want me to explain, unless you mean starting from scratch. I think I’m past the point of no return.

    Re: legislating moral behavior vs. morality, okay — I’ll bite. You can argue that. There are many supporters of sharia who will find that a terrific approach to religionizing society.

    I’m with Tom Jefferson and his merry band, who believe(d) that government is best which governs least.

    It’s not a very congenial view among libs and conservatives.

  • ^TDO^

    No David,

    The point is you are a liar.  You always have been a liar here.  You can’t keep your stories straight.

    So nothing you say is going to be believed. 

    most of the time when you talk about some ‘trait’ of yours, it seems to come at convenient times.

    I don’t believe you are Jewish.

    I don’t believe you are rich.

    I don’t believe you have a muslim butt buddy husband.

    I believe you are a lonely wretch seeking acknowledgement.

    It is rather sad to watch, really.

    Again, I have to read between the lines.

    My inference: All failure to comply with the Commandments and other moral standards weakens society — which I won’t necessarily disagree with.

    But I keep reading here that state action should kick in when individual behavior harms others directly or indirectly.

    So we’re back to legislating moral behavior, which is what Obamaroids insist we do, in partnership with others on the right side of the aisle.

    If that’s NOT what you’re saying, well — I done my best.

    Your last paragraph shows the vast chasm between us. You have no problem with government except when it condones immoral acts.

    I have a problem with government that prohibits alcohol sales, that requires limits on salt consumption in restaurants (NYC), that administers anti-VD inoculations to pre-pubescent schoolgirls on a mass basis (Rick Perry), that seeks ways to disrupt or censor the exchange of opinions, that promotes voter fraud, that subsidizes crony capitalism, that undermines domestic energy production and on and on.

    The very name Demon Rum screams it’s demonic, or sinful, whether or not so designated by the Bible. I believe (could be wrong) Moslems regard its consumption as immoral. Christian Scientists and Seventh-day Adventists aren’t fans.

    Alcohol is considered evil by at least some Dutch Reformed. I’ve heard Baptists bad-mouth it.

    I don’t mean it can’t find liturgical applications.

    Many alcoholics regard the substance as evil. They know something about it.

    The name Demon Rum is not in the Bible, and the Bible is all that concerns me on morals. I’m not Muslim, Christian Scientist, or Seventh-day Adventist, so what they say is of no consequence to me either.

    As I said, nowhere in the Bible does it say that alcohol is evil, or that one should not drink it. Only that you take everything in moderation.

      Pro 20:1 Says………….

    “Wine [is] a mocker, strong drink [is] raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”

    Maybe the moderators figure a Blain is a terrible thing to waste.

  • jas

    What can I say.  I’m immoral.

    Brain Drain’s been around a couple of years.  Several months ago he apparently lost it and threatened to rape and kill everybody’s kids.  Since then, he’s only dropped in for a random comment, then zoomed off.

    In the five plus years I’ve been here it’s amazing how many Gays just like Blaine have come and gone.  I mean just like Blaine.

    <  All Liberals

    <  All fabulously wealthy and successful pillars of their Gay community

  • 1LonesomeDove1

    Yes you did! You enjoyed it too!  : )

  • jas

    Did you include any references?

    I tried to post some youtube stuff and it did the same thing.

  • A_friendly_reader

    Someone said yesterday that if you refresh you’ll probably find it where it should be.

  • westoast

    I remember there was a lot of objectionable material going back and forth around that time. A couple other people disappeared at the same time and that is the only reason I believed he was banned……..I say.
    Still I had a nagging feeling it was a mix-up or crossed wires or whatever.

  • A_friendly_reader

    And yet the ShugaClones gloated on and on and on; yet no one tried to shut them down by  bringing Appy back? Doesn’t make sense.

  • jas

    Nah.  They rejoiced for weeks over on Buchanan’s site.  That’s where Appy spent most of his time.  And that’s how he would have wanted to go.  In a blaze of glory!

    During his absence he could still read our posts and would from time to time send an e-mail to TDO to be posted for him.  LOL!!!

    Some of the computer geeks here tried to convince him to go around the ban, but he said he was content with not coming back.

  • Ribbey

    Everything was fine, we all were having a descent legitimate discussion that was going well, and all of the sudden a big nasty barged right in, in the middle of it and everything got jumbled and messed up real fast…

  • A_friendly_reader

    Forget your troubles
    Come on get Appy
     
    You better chase all you cares away
     
    Shout hallelujah
     
    Come on get Appy
     
    Get ready for the judgment day
     

    The sun is shining
     
    Come on get Appy
     
    The lord is waiting to take your hand
     
    Shout hallelujah
     
    Come on get Appy
     
    We’re going to the promised land
     

    We’re heading across the river
     
    Wash your sins away in the tide
     
    It’s all so peaceful on the other side
     

    [Chorus: x2]
     

    The sun is shining
     
    Come on get Appy
     
    The lord is waiting to take your hand
     
    Shout hallelujah
     
    Come on get Appy
     
    We’re going to the promised land
     

    We’re heading across the river
     
    Wash your sins away in the tide
     
    It’s quiet and peaceful on the other side
     

    [Chorus]

    I just tried to post the address (URL?) atop this page and I got the same comment about needing moderator approval.

    Well, to everyone’s dismay; I will try to re-post it minus the link.

  • Paul Earth A.D.

    Edward,

    “Newt is very very smart. By sucking up to a Christian church like all Christians his unsavory past is irrevelent (as long as he believes Jesus created the universe 6000 years ago).” – Edward.

    “If there was ever a scam it is Christianity. Basically all you have to do is believe Jesus is the Messiah and say you’re sorry for whatever and heaven is all yours. Your past is forgiven because Jesus died for your sins so basically every Christian has a free get out of hell card” -Edward.

    Your understanding of Salvation and the Christian faith, is still in a state of ignorance.

    Belief in when the earth was created has nothing to do with ones Salvation.

    The Christians Salvation is based upon Jesus’ shed blood at the cross. And when a person GENUINELY puts their faith in Jesus, believes in His atoning sacrifice, and accepts Him as their Savior and the only way to Salvation — that’s when a person becomes saved.

    There are many people who have an intellectual faith or knowledge of Jesus Christ; all Christians do. But those who only have an intellectual faith — that is to say that they know about Jesus, and say they believe in Him, but have not truly accepted Him in their hearts and live unrepentant sinful lives and have no relationship with Christ — these people are not really saved. And Jesus says there will be such people:

    Matthew 7:21-23

    “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”

    “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

    Clearly, these people thought they were saved Christians in good standing with God and going to Heaven, they had even done many wonderful works in Christ’s name – but Jesus says otherwise: “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

    There are no magic words (Abracadabra) that will save someone and make them a real Christian. We cannot work our way into Heaven or merely say a few words and then we are suddenly saved children of God. We must have a saving faith and not just an intellectual faith. That means we must be Born Again, and that happens when we completely and sincerely put our faith, trust, and hope solely in Jesus – when we do that, we are sealed by His Holy Spirit and we are saved; we will begin to live life anew — a life with and for Christ.

    Also, to address another one of your misunderstandings: “By sucking up to a Christian church like all Christians his unsavory past is irrevelent.” -Edward.

    The saved Christians past is not irrelevant at all. Even though we are saved, and our sin is forgiven when confessed; we shall still have to give an account of what we did while here on earth.

    2 Corinthians 5:10
    “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”

    The judgement seat of Christ is for Christians only and has nothing to do with our Salvation because we will already be in Heaven and saved by Jesus and our faith in Him; all unsaved non believers will be on their way to Hell and will be judged at the Great White Throne judgment at the end of Christ’s millennial reign.

    As to the Christian’s judgement, it will be a judgement in regard to rewards that some shall receive for what they did or did not do for Christ in their lives. Not only will rewards be given to those who were faithful and obedient to God’s call, but it will also mean missing out on rewards that we could have received when we neglected to serve him or live accordingly. So you see, our lives and what we do, or allow Christ to do through us, will have eternal consequences. This is when our works or lack there of, will come into play and shall be judged — again, this is not to determine our Salvation.

    Kerry WAS a coward AND a liar, and the Swift Boat Veterans PROVED he lied on three separate occasions.

    But that year, the qualification for President (according to the Left) was MILITARY SERVICE. Interesating how that never came up with Obama. Just like fidelity to your wife and telling the truth did not ever some up with Clinton!

  • Bill

    Change wives, change religions, it’s all good!

  • Mike_M_Davis

    Odd that you’d mention the Air Guard memo.

    Since there’s still NO evidence that Bush was in Alabama during the 9 month period that he was assigned there.

    Except for a receipt from a dental appointment he had…

    …which wasn’t on base.

    Not even his C.O. can remember ever seeing him there.

    What’s up with that, I wonder?

  • StanW

    Don’t need to do that. As Harry Truman said, all we need to do is to tell the truth about Liberal and they will think it is a smear.

  • StanW

    If you would, then you probably already are.

    Does your wife know what a pathetic excuse for a man you are, Bill?

  • Bill

    At least he put on a uniform. Cheney didn’t even attempt to serve.

    And while Kerry may have danced with Jane Fonda and the NVA, at least he scraped some Mekong mud from his combat boots first.

  • Mike_M_Davis

    Stanislavsky

    I think you might be on to something here.

    Why haven’t any of the networks interviewed any of Obama’s ex-babes?

    What are they concealing? I demand to know!

    Maybe Fox or Drudge or WND can get right on that.

  • Bill

    That’s commie talk.

  • StanW

    Bush served, you idiot.

    And for every man and women that “scraped Mekong mud from his combat boots”, there were at least a dozen personnel in support roles, both overseas and in-country, that never had the mud on their boot, but made sure that mission worked and those people came home.

    For denegrating all those support personnel in our armed forces, you are cordially invited to go FUCK yourself!
