Wish Levin and C4P were doing more in the Senate primaries. NE primary is 5/15 and a guy who supported Obama's Stimulus is leading. Support the Mama Grizzly:
The Romney GOP Establishment backers have said it:
Romney's nomination means the Tea Party is dead!
Romney to nominate an anti-Palin VP nominee to nail the coffin shut tight!
Our answer must be:
NO PALIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, NO ROMNEY EITHER!
In any case, he cannot win without her, period.
Good one RS. Mark is beginning to get himself back on the rails. This is something of interest that is not much known.
Maybe the Right Scoop can post clips that aren't on YouTube featuring the conservative candidates that Levin is identifying:
Ted Cruz in Texas (v Dewhurst),
Murdock in Indiana v (RINO Lugar)
Stenburg in Nebraska (v Bruning)
Mitten's RINOs hate conservatives that talk the talk and walk the walk. Watch for Mitten's etch a sketch to come out as the campaign unfolds. It already has to a smaller degree with Mittens playing the class warfare on the rich. I guess this is what being a 'severe' conservitive is?
After Bob Dole and John McCain, I'm sick of holding my nose and voting for the RINO annointed by the GOP Establishment. This year I'm writing in my pick for POTUS and it ain't Romney or Obama.
Vote conservative down ballot to stop RINOs and Obama dead in their tracks, our liberty is at stake and you cannot trust either group.
Come to think of it, conservatives have been disenfranchised for a long time. It's only lately that we've realized it.
I'm really, really thankful Levin is on this - he's lending a very loud voice to a serious issue. I'm a constituent of Sen. Johnson, and he's doing exactly what we sent him there to do. He said he was going to go with ideas and do his best to get us back on a fiscally sound path - and like Gov. Walker, he's keeping his promise.
Ron not only has to fight here at home against the union mindset and his support for Walker, he also has to fight the very people who supposedly stand for fiscal responsibility. Anyone who can't see that there is an 'establishment' mentality in the GOP is either lying to themselves or complicit.
Our war is on three fronts: The Left, The Media, and The Republican Establishment.
Or, put another way: The Wolves, The Hyenas, and the Wolves in Sheep's Clothing.
The Left and the Establishment are two sides to the same coin... it's time to get a new coin.
This is one of the most important subject Mark has covered. The revelation that the RINO Republican in not RINO all. He's a Facist, a statist, second cousin to a communist. The RINO, including sacrosanct Christie, is a commie with a suit and a Gold Card and a club membership. The communists own the factories. The Facists own the factory owners. Both love government. Both are modern versions of monarchy and totalitarianism. One is a Caesar, the other is a Caesar Chavez.
This Romney character, a business man who thinks he can be a President, will also require severe scrutiny. If he doesn't get Newt into a position where he can oversee Federal service, he is a fool. If he doesn't enlist Newt somewhere in his regime, he is an idiot.
Mittens is both an idiot and a lying fool.
Newt Gingrich vs. Mitt Romney; Comparing Conservative ‘Products of Work’ http://bit.ly/xW926U
Character and courage are scarce in DC.
Thanks to RS for posting and to Levin for bringing attention to the Indiana Senate race. I have received two negative mailers from Lugar about Murdoch in 3 days. I didn't even read them-tore them up and threw them in the recycling bin. Letters to editor favor Murdoch by wide margin.
How are TEA Party Conservatives supposed to interpret the fact that the RNC is hell-bound and determined to force on them a nominee who is identical to Obama in radical liberal policy, tactics and ability to lie, flip/flop and steal from the public purse for his own and his friends' profit?
HOW is that any way to restore the US to security, sanity and solvency???
NOT only the Senate and/or the House GOP, evidently.
The RNC party bosses (unelected) are liberals, committed to making Romney the nominee and to silencing the conservatives.
It's long been known that the primary process is rigged against conservatives being nominated. ( http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/morning-jay-nomination-rules-are-rigged-against-conservatives_616072.html)
Under these circumstances, it was a miracle that Reagan got the nomination.
The RNC fired Michael Steele, who had evidently made the primary rules more equitable for conservatives.
Peter Ergan offers an explanation:
"For most everyone paying attention, it has become overtly clear that the RNC and the unelected party bosses who have controlled the candidate selection process for all of this author's lifetime and probably closer to a century or more have been trying their best to rig the game in order to favor Romney."
"At this point, we the people had better start to put an enormous amount of pressure on the RNC as well as on state party officials and state delegates. Our only hope to defeat Obama with a candidate that's actually to the right of him politically is to thwart the RNC's corrupt attempt at rigging the election for the Massachusetts liberal whose policies as governor were strikingly similar to Obama's Marxist agenda as President.
"Additionally, the party elites saw to it that Virginia’s rules were drawn up in such a way that the two conservatives in the race were excluded from the ballot altogether, handing the state to Romney by default while denying the voters of Virginia their say in who the party’s next Presidential nominee should be. There was a primary in Missouri, which conservative leader Rick Santorum dominated winning 55% of the vote, but there were no delegates awarded. Instead, a second “nonbinding” caucus is to be held over a period of several weeks. Nobody seems to fully understand what a “nonbinding” caucus is, but from everything this author has read, it is apparently a vote in which the delegates awarded are not necessarily done so in a manner consistent with the vote of the people. Thus, Missouri will have held two elections in which neither determined how the state’s delegates will be allocated."
"Florida’s 50 delegates were supposed to be distributed proportionately due to the fact that the state moved up its primary to January 31. However, Romney outspent his opponents 20-1 after a backroom meeting with RNC officials in which he was instructed that if he won the state, they’d award all delegates to him. He spent an obscene amount of money, and the RNC broke the rules and gave all 50 delegates to Romney. Had any other candidate won Florida, the delegates would have been proportionately assigned."
"Had Michael Steele not pulled the wool over the eyes of the people who've helped lead the nation down the path of destruction, what fleeting hope of electing a leader capable of restoring our country to sanity, much less greatness, would be nonexistent. While we've still a long uphill battle to fight in ensuring that the party recognizes that 2/3 of Republicans are voting AGAINST Romney, rendering him unfit to serve as the nominee, it's more than we'd have had the man on whose watch the 2010 63-seat blowout of Congressional Democrats occurred not taken measures to protect we the voters from the likes of those whose agenda is to see to it that the two candidates squaring off in November would be completely and totally indecipherable were it not for the color of their skin."
Now, the RNC is planning to strip Rick Santorum of his hard-earned delegates (and any voice in the Convention?) so it's left up to Newt Gingrich to hold out somehow until then to make sure sanity and honesty prevail.
Conservatives sure can't count on any sort of media sanity or honesty - it is mostly owned, operated and/or orchestrated by either Soros or Romney.
Malkin, Coulter, Drudge, NRO, Beck, Townhall, et al have excoriated Newt Gingrich with the help of thousands of Romney's nasty smear minions typing comments on every blog, casting aspersions and epithets on Newt. (http://www.conservatives4newt.blogspot.com/2012/04/what-conservative-media.html)
At least, Rush, Levin, Greta and Hannity have maintained a posture of neutrality and objectivity.
Still all the media, conservative and mainstream, have been silent on Romney's lies, corruption and tactics. The media silence has been as great as it was on Obama in 2008.
And, some like Rush and Levin have hastened to defend Romney's scurrilous methods of 'capitalism'.
Despite all the media fog and fury:
* Conservatives can see that Romney's conduct in business, his public funds grabbing, radical liberalism, usurpations of power, lack of success in his governorship, political tactics, severe non-factualism are all well-documented and indefensible.
* Conservatives, who have researched and watched Romney, can now see that he is indistinguishable from Obama - In fact, Romney's governorship, business life, and conduct might as well be called the experimental model for Obama's entire presidency.
You can believe the GOP establishment will fight against any kind of conservative platform or any nominee that prevents their continued use of office for personal gain and power.
Supposedly, we should be fine to vote for Romney since a "Conservative" congress will keep him in tow. Wonder if Mitten's supporters here are going to be a bit more nervous....doubt it, but never know.
This pseudo-conservative Congress has not held Obama or stopped his looting and lawlessness. They have not stopped Holder from his attacks on the states or assaults on Voter IDs to facilitate Election fraud.
Well since we don't have a conservative congress that doesn't seem like a good excuse for his supporters to tout voting for him.
Yea- I wondered about this earlier, wondering if it was an April Fool's Day joke of Johnson's -- if not, I'm glad I'm not in Johnson's district, as he'd certainly not be representing me by that endorsement.
I'm a Ron Johnson constiuent and I'm looking at it this way:
The corruption in Washington DC is like that dandelion in your yard. The pretty yellow flower is the President. The root system is the House & Senate. We can keep cutting that pretty, yellow flower off every four to eight years hoping it will change - but that won't do it. In order to get rid of the weed, we have to uproot it. We have to yank the sucker out of the ground completely and kill it off.
That's what the new conservatives are about. Yanking the roots. Getting rid of the problem. I think people like Jim Demint, Ron Johnson, Nikkie Haley - and others who have endorsed Romney - also understand this. The President alone cannot fix this problem. We have to get rid of the corruption in the House & Senate (as well as a few Governors), or nothing is going to change.
I could be entirely wrong and they think Romney is the bee's knee's and will govern just fine. I just have a hard time believing that people who understand the severity of our condition (and Ron does) are that stupid.
With the Mitt endorsement? No.
With everything else? Pretty much, yes.
I think some are simply settling for Romney because they are fighting a fight on the base level and realize that even if we get our perfect nominee, we are still screwed if we don't clean up the House & Senate. I think it's why we didn't see our best and brightest stepping up to run. They are concentrating on the root system...
Granted. But, Amy, I guess my more minor point (in comparison to your apt description) is more to the idea of ... well, as a constituent of Johnson's, were you (1) happy & thrilled, or (2) disappointed, at the --in my view-- too-early endorsement of Mittens by Johnson?
This is absolutely the LAST time (2012) I'm voting for a GOP nominee - and only because maobama is really that bad. The Republicans are just a hair less terrible than the Democrats.
3rd party time!
War party time! Kick them all out and set up tribunals for the treason these scum all embraced by going along with it all.
Didn't one of the best, Abe Lincoln, win and hold our Republic together in a NEW party, we can do it again if we can unite behind conservatism and fiscal responsibility. We have to educate and envigorate to get it done, we have to. Git'r done !
What a conspiracy of EVIL the GOP elite party is, crushing every TRUE CONSERVATIVE who comes down the pike! Just as they sabotaged,Bachmann, Cain,Ginrich 2x,Santorum,all in favor of their "golden boy" Liberal Romney! It's high time to let this wicked Statist,liberal party DIE!!! like the whigs! Just the same way they NEVER challenge Obama's birth cirtificate,or any of the other of his HIGHLY ILLEGAL activities he does, and he just keeps lowering the bar and pushing farther and farther!Because Obama Knows THE GOP is a bunch of GUTLESS COWARDS!
Its is fuuny that Mark rips establishment when he backs george Allen (establishment) over Tea party member Jamie Radtke for senate in Virginia.
Jamie Radtke has ignored the entire Hampton Roads region....I live in Va Beach and if it weren't for a few random comments like this, I would never even know she was running....I'm not saying George Allen is perfect but with a strategy like that, how can she honestly expect to take on Tim Kaine and the DNC? I even found myself chatting with someone who said they were on her campaign team a few months back and made them aware that we were all under the impression that Allen was the nominee and said it would be nice to hear what she had to say. They said they were going to look into that but there was never any attempt made to reach out to voters down here!!
QUESTION: If Romney is the Nominee
On Election Night,
What colors will the pundits use to indicates the state winner?
Blue and Red
Blue and like Blue
The Republican party must stand for just being the red team or leftist-lite. This is where the tea party is critical to them no matter how much they dislike it.
I have been very deeply disappointed by the current house 'leadership', they have yet to miss a chance to fold like a cheap tent in a windstorm. What the Republican leadership doesn't get is part of the reason they got killed in '08 was because they were not governing by conservative constitutional principals. Be conservative, don't play the Democrats game - they own the media, play the pander game better than you and will always beat you at their own game.
The tea party really can't go it independently - we can start primarying out the losers and turn the party into one of constitutional conservatism. This will take time...but hopefully not too much time.
We don't have time. When Romney loses we better get it together, because after that is civil disobedience, and after that is, well, not pretty.
