Yeah - the US Constitution was once a "very conservative idea".
We have seen what Nobama has done with that!!!
In November - Nobama !
Way to go, GOP "establishment." Thanks for forcing Romney on us. I guess we better start buying--and BURYING--gold, guns and ammo, because you're pretty much doomed us to Presidence Corky McShortbus 2.0.
That's like saying the Bible condones bootleg hooch because, taken out of context, the 23rd Psalm states: "He leadeth me beside the still...."
Carney is a bobblehead. He has the ability to reason and capacity for logic of a housefly.
assistant LIAR IN CHIEF! The Heritage Foundation is Ronald Reagan's Foundation and he always said Government IS THE PROBLEM!
Hey Carney! (carney is short for a carnival guy...weeeee, classy)
Since Obamacare was fashioned after Romneycare, how's about limiting it to Massoftwoshits, mmkay?
"Hi I'm Jay Carney, and my job is to defend the indefensible. To obfuscate. Any notable newspaper need a delivery guy? OMG, this is too hard. I am now qualified to argue that the ground is blue and the sky is brown. Of course no one will believe that either. They will believe this Obamacare/Romneycare biz though.
C'est la vie."
And that's why Romney disqualifies himself (or should recuse himself) from this election! His name (RomneyCare) carries one of the nails hammered (ObamaCare) onto America's coffin!
I'll say it again: Mitt Romney REALLY wants to be President! He's been trying for the last few cycles and building up before that. He wants to sit in the big chair, fly on Air Force One, make the big decisions, have the military salute him, live in the White House, and get called "Mr. President."
He wants it all.
That's why he's not qualified. I do not think he's in it to serve or put us on a new path; I think he just wants the most important job in the world.
I don't give a crap that it was based on Romneycare- it's still unconstitutional and it's a horrible thing for the US to go down this socialism road anymore!!!
It was NEVER a conservative idea and Heritage acknowledges that now. I wonder how much cough syrup Carney has to drink so he can sleep at night.
I'm not fooled and neither is Carney. He's lying and he knows it (However, since he's a committed leftist, he doesn't believe in objective truth. Truth is whatever he can convince people it is). Everyone knows that government-mandated insurance coverage predates even Heritage's idea. You think anyone in this administration knew about Heritage's plan before Obama began his '08 campaign? The fact that Heritage briefly supported an individual mandate is nothing but a convenient coincidence that the White House is now trotting out to make them seem less out of the mainstream.
When have they ever listened to anything else Heritage had to say? I'd be willing to believe they came around to Heritage's idea, which was apparently way ahead of its time, if they got onboard with Heritages current ideas regarding the federal budget, entitlement reform and energy production.
Better the devil you know than the devil you don't, better the devil Obama than the devil you know created Obamacare and implemented it in his homestate of Massachusetts and the one one that said he doesn't care about poor people.
That's how's gonna be in the general election, you're warned mittbots.
PChandler, you really don't have a clue how bad Obama is for our country, do you. Everything this guy touches and does is bad for our country. Everything. I'm not going to get into making lists etc. because anybody that would, for any reason, wish to continue his regime would not understand or hasn't been following.
Don't jump onto a conservative blog like TRS and start spouting worn out sayings without knowing what you're talking about. True, this may be your opinion, which you are entitled to, but general sayings won't cut it here.
Thanks for the 'warning'.
And no, I'm not a Romney guy, I'm an anti Obama guy.
i almost cursed! no way! our republic as we know it will not survive a second term of Obama. we must stand behind whom ever becomes the rep nominee. will i like it, most likely not. but will not our country be in a worst situation under Obama? as the "great one" states we must vote for the orange can before we ever allow Obama's second term. will it be a fair election? not likely. we must be on our knees praying for guidance, or we will be on our knees under the rule of ever larger gov't. give me liberty or give me death
Romney has burned too many bridges with the base to beat Obama. This is just a preview of the general election strategy from the Obama team. We must defeat Romney in the primaries!
It is so simple and obvious that the masses are missing it altogether. The media will first kill off all Romney competitors. Why? Because they know that there is one issue that angers the public equally if not more than the overall economy...Obamacare. It is what sunk them in 2010, and it is what could kill them in 2012. So, if they can get the GOP to nominate Romney, they have accomplished a couple of things:
1. They have disaffected the majority of the conservative base. They have exposed the GOP elites for what they are, and have weakened the resolve of getting out the vote. (Even people on this blog have admitted that they won't vote if Romney is the guy). This gives them numbers and a rebalance of outcome....could even help them retake the house.
2. They have neutralized the Obamacare fight. In nominating Romney, the GOP shows it is not serious about doing something on this issue. In fact, it shows the country that both parties are for a form of Governmental control over health care. The GOP will be reduced to talking about how they would have "done it better". They'll get so beaten down in the debates that they will resort to the "how" vs. the constitutionality of it.
In the end, the GOP will possibly lose Congress and the Presidency. They won't recover for decades because the GOP will have lost all conservative credibility and will get challenged by a legitimate 3rd party formation...and I'm not thinking it is the Libertarian Party.
Your train of thought is not outside the realm of possibilities.
People say "get behind the frontrunner, no matter who it is" and I wonder what will be the outcome of that if/when Mitt gets defeated? How will that impact Conservatism for the next decade?
Then, of course, I see Israel showing they can't trust us and I think that a hand puppet would be better than Obama.
Spinning like a top. Carney actually seems like a likeable guy, it's a shame he works for such a villian.
Pay attention here Mitt, the reason people don't support you isn't the robocalls, it's the Romneycare
The conservative idea was to have healthcare be available in all 50 states. And to stop forcing govt mandates down Americans throats. That is why healthcare is so expensive.
As I have bee saying all along, Mitt is a RINO and he is NOT electable. This issue is the chink in his armor (and I don't want to hear anything about a racial slur here).
First is was Nikki, then it was Coulter and Jan- wow, everyone's endorsing Romney. Am I late for this party?
This may work against Romney. Carney is telling conservatives what they already know and with this "ringing endorsement" from Obama, Romney may well be toast.
And we all know just how much of a conservative hotbed The People's Republic of Massachusettes is, right?
See, this is why I think Obama will defeat Romney... Those who are 'undecided' and 'independent' will just look at Romney and say, 'He's no different than Obama, so why vote Obama out?'. It's hard to unseat an incumbent and if the choice is the same, people will either stay home or vote the incumbent.
We need a clear choice between the two options.
Yep, we have two choices, neither good. Get ride of Maobama after defeating MittWitt or move to the Aussie outback. Anyone want to come with me? We can go to Christchurch, Aussie and rebuild the place.
Shhh! Don't tell anyone, Mike, but ChristChurch is in New Zealand! Great way to throw the bad guys off your trail though!
Darn tooten. I won't be in a position to be bothered by my loved ones being hurt if I'm already dead. That's my plan.
mike, you are rightous man! i feel the same way about the women in my life. got to get thru me before they even think about them.
Hey buddy, you'd better stay right here and help us fight on! But I know how you feel. Many days (like yesterday), just when I think things can't get worse, they do. I've often wished I could run away to a tropical island, but it's just a dream when I think my head is going to explode!
I prefer dangerous animals to dangerous humans. Just like dogs, they make their opinion of you known before you get too close where as the likes of clintoons and maobamas and kennedys, they will befriend you then help to disappear you.
Yes, animals are honest in all of their dealings, you just might not like their opinion, is all.
Amy, I got your back and that of every other American. Even those OWS nitwits who do need to be protected. Mostly from themselves.
You're a sweetie ;-)
NZ sounds better though... Too many things that will eat you, poison you or bite you in Aussie! I've officially told the hubbie no way, no how on visiting. LOL He calls me chicken, I say it's self preservation! :-)
Yeah, I stand corrected. I've heard I may like the New Zealand gov't better than the Aussie gov't, anyway.
I, actually want the bad guys to come after me before they start harassing the likes of Maxine, or SDee or Amy, et al.
