Romney Is So Depressing

Mopvyzo USA 2012/09/17 03:25:15

GOP activists to Romney: Why aren't you winning? Republican activists are incredulous: Why can't Republican Mitt Romney seem to break open a tight race with President Barack Obama given the nation's sluggish economy and conservative enthusiasm to beat the Democrat?
"He ought to be killing Obama, and he's clearly not doing that," said 32-year-old R.J. Robinson, one of the thousands of activists attending the annual Values Voters Summit this weekend. "He should be doing better."
Added Mike Garner, a 27-year-old hawking "Reagan was right" buttons at the meeting: "If Romney loses this election, the party really needs to do some soul-searching."

    The Republican party screwed themselves by putting Romney up as the candidate. As Newt said during the debates, he has been running for office since 1995 and cannot win. He was not good enough before and he is not good enough now.

    The only people that would vote for this man are the people that vote Republican no matter what.

    LMAO with this clown as a person running for president. The right wing has never liked him, as most of the country doesn't either. BUT the right wing has stuck with him until lately, since he seems to be drifting away from the presidency. Now they are criticizing his campaign. They are right too. In past history when the economy is doing badly, they will vote an incumbent out of office. But Romney is and always has been a weak candidate, and now Obama has some momentum going.
  • Lefty 2012/09/17 22:46:01
    I think we should let up on him just a little. I'm afraid he will have a nervous breakdown.

    Lol....This post is VERY revealing!

    You do realize what you are saying about your candidate at the very same time? Too funny!
  • RogerCoppock 2012/09/17 18:32:03
    What is depressing is that one decade into the new century we are still discussing the issues that most of us thought were settled in the last century: 'trickle down,' health care, church and state, and class preference.

    Mitt does not offer anything but a doubling down of G W Bush. This will fail just as surely as the sun will rise in the east. Only a fool or a bin Laden supporter would support republican policies. Transferring wealth from the middle class to the rich just will not work.

    The Rethuglikken Party does not want to actually win this election any more than the 2008 election. It's all a part of their ubber-cynical long term strategy. As long as they can control Congress they can move their agenda forward and still blame Democrats for any/everything.

    Come the 2016 election they will return to nominating their "normal" candidates. 'merikins barely retain a 12 minute attention span now and they'll have had 8 years to brainwash the up-and-coming generation who'll barely remember G.W. Bush's administration.

    No one trusts Romney and this is his problem. He has flip flopped on issues throughout his whole political career. He said he didnt raise taxes in Massachusetts but he raised "fees" on everything which amounted to the same thing. Massachusetts went from 43rd to 47th for job creation, and last but not least, his refusal to show his taxes scares everyone including republicans. Oh, one more thing, he is BORING!!!!
  • Bastion 2012/09/17 13:36:12
    It's been shown before that the extreme right wing lives in an insular world, where they are sure they are a majority.

    Republican leadership know this isn't true - thus the blatant attempts at voter suppression.

    Republicans can't possibly win if enough people vote . . . it's as simple as that.

    Values voters were definitely NOT happy with Romney's campaign, and conservative, Joe Scarbough, says his canpaign people are "disaster". Today Scarborough said several times that Romney is a "horrible candidate". That is stating the obvious.

    Incumbents win 80% of the time. Incumbents are almost always AHEAD in the polls. The fact that Romney is holding his own against an incumbent shows that he is in good shape. An incumbent usually loses if he is not ahead with more than 50%. Obama doesn't have 50% in any of the polls. Undecideds unusually break AGAINST the incumbent 80-20. Romney is in good shape.

    Latest Rasmussen poll (16 Sept 2012) had Obama at 49% and Romney 48%. I wouldn't call that losing, I'd call that a dead heat.

    Romney could do better with his message. Protectionism is just lame.
  • Tedster 2012/09/17 04:45:24
    Their party does not deal well when they don't get their way. So, the idea that the GOP will do any soul searching--real or otherwise--is just absurd, wishful thinking. They'll find themselves in denial and take turns blaming the loss of an imminently winnable election on the "lame stream media" and voter fraud while ignoring the fact that Mitt Romney was/is a terrible candidate. Wait and see.

    The next time the GOP's introspective about anything will be their first.
  • edward.... Tedster 2012/09/17 06:45:53 (edited)
    Party leaders hands will be dirty if Romney loses. They will all be tossed from their positions. Then they will blame everybody else.
  • sjalan 2012/09/17 04:01:34
    The Republican/Tea Party should just shut down right now and save everyone a big hassle. They are no longer the Republican Party that was concerned about the US, they are now the puppets of the two headed hydra that controls them ie: the Billionaires of Industry and the Rabid Radical Religious Reich.

    What a liar you are !!!

    Romney was elected Governor of Massachusetts in 2002 but did not seek re-election in 2006. During his term he presided over the elimination of a projected $3 billion deficit through a combination of spending cuts, increased fees, and removal of corporate tax loopholes.

    That's Obamunism for you, say one thing, then spin it the other way.
    America is so fed up with the lies of Obamunism.

    "The Obama administration dispatches UN Ambassador Susan Rice to defend theory that attack last week on US Consulate in Benghazi was a 'spontaneous' act, a position Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif insists is 'completely unfounded and preposterous.' "

    Obama has played Americans for fools long enough.

    Americans fools Obama

    "That's Obamunism for you, say one thing, then spin it the other way.
    America is so fed up with the lies of Obamunism."

    Turn off your selective hearing and look at what I said.

    "As Newt said during the debates"

    Newt was talking about at the federal level and so was I. This is why I referenced what he said. You people have very limited comprehension and yet still vote.

    "Obama has played Americans for fools long enough."

    The only fools in America are the newer GOP members. There lack of intelligence causes me to lose faith in humanity every time I listen to them for longer then 10 minutes.
  • DavE D.C. Wi... 2012/09/17 17:13:25
    Pull the salamander out of your ass and get real.
    You said, Newt said, he really meant, I really meant, ad nauseum.
    Say what you mean and mean what you say.
    You say a lie on it's face, you've said a lie.
    Typical Obamanist.

    I'm used to the lying toads jumping on the avatar. LOL.

    Hey, how about Obamunism's latest lies?

    Intelligence sources in Libya say that contrary to Obama administration claims, there was no demonstration outside the US Consulate in Benghazi before last week's attack that left four Americans dead.

    Obama lies

    I think you should tell that to Newt Gingrich, because he said it!

    This morning, Newt Gingrich pointed out just how long Mitt Romney has been running for office: “The fact is, you ran in '94 and lost, that's why you weren’t serving the Senate with Rick Santorum. The fact is, you had a very bad reelection rating, you dropped out of office, you had been out of state for something like 200 days preparing to run for president, you didn’t have this interlude of citizenship while you thought about what to do. You were running for president while you were governor, and you were going all over the country, you were out of state consistently. You then promptly re-entered politics – you then happen to lose to McCain as you had lost to Kennedy. Now you’re back running. You have been running consistently for years and years and years, so this idea that suddenly citizenship showed up in your mind, just level with the American people, you’ve been running since at least the 1990’s.”

    Romney is the ONLY Republican candidate that could get close to a possible win . . . BECAUSE he's slightly less nuts than anyone else the Republicans have.

    Right-wing extremists are so sure they are some kind of American majority - truth is the hardcore right will never muster more than 21 - 23% of the population. Ever. And I believe that will trickle away if people can be freed from conservative propaganda and become more educated.
