That video about Romney was put out by a Newt SuperPAC, and it’s name is based on the book Gingrich published “Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract With America” in May of 2006. I just verified it at Amazon, and remember when the WH came out with their WtF slogan, Hot Air was all over the stupidity of it, not least of which it plagiarized the Gingrich title.
Thanks to reader Troy, we have to consider that the whole republican field is another set-up and illusion of an election, where Romney will be the nominee and he will lose to Obama. Please study the comments and this video, and think long-term. The ‘surge’ of this republican or that one is just what it is: a mirage to make us think we have a choice. While you may not like Ron Paul, I do not believe he is a part of this as are Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, and Huntsman. Cain presented the illusion of a threat and had to be eliminated by innuendo. Huntsman dropped out and endorsed Romney. Will Bachman be the next traitor to show her part of this charade? 😡 )
The notion that Mitt Romney routinely makes statements lacking a factual basis should not come as a surprise to anyone who has followed the campaign. On the left, Paul Krugman has marveled that no other candidate has ever “lied so freely, with so little compunction.” On the right, The American Conservative‘s Daniel Larison wondered about why he lies, concluding that the former Massachusetts governor is “so contemptuous of the people he tells lies to that he never thinks he will be found out.”
Alarm bells should be ringing in everyone’s ears when Karl Rove, the establishment RINOs, GHW Bush, and democrats ‘praise’ Mitt Romney, or in the case of Nancy Piglosi, jeer at the republicans for their infighting over him.
Mitt Romney can’t climb above 25% in public opinion polls (to the extent that those are believable, it’s actually probably less than 25%), is endorsed by losers and NDAA sponsors like John McCain, and has been running for president for five years. He’s playing it safe, trying to ‘look presidential’ and ‘grown-up’ and demonstrates his deception with every word he speaks. His campaign slogan is deception pure and simple: ‘let’s fight for the America we love” (?)
While trying to run as a “CEO”, and ‘someone who has been in business’, and ‘knows how to create jobs’, let’s hear about Mitt Romney’s “creative destruction” of American business and jobs (h/t Bill):
Can you hear the guffaws as Romney lied in last night’s debate saying “get rid of Obamacare”? Like the guffaws in the film above when he said that the money in corporations goes to the people? Can you hear the democrats focusing on Romney’s corporate savagery as a convenient distraction from Obama’s savaging of America?
There are no degrees of separation between Obama and Romney. They both think they are entitled to the presidency, and they both have the media doing everything in their power to enable the continued destruction of the Constitution. The rinos, dinos, Rovians all want Romney to be the nominee because he will lose to Obama….and if by some miracle he wins, so that the continued theft of America and destruction of the Constitution will escalate.
By the way, did you notice that a questioner in the South Carolina debate asked Romney about his father being born outside the United States, and segued that into a discussion of immigration? Do you notice they will never ask what a ‘natural born citizen’ is? How many of us tweeted that question to be totally ignored? The media and republicans are scared to death of that subject.
