Romney? Is He Serious?

Mitt Romney now sees himself as the savior of the (R) brand.

This is the guy who instituted "Romney-Care" in Massachusetts--which even his (D) successor (Patrick) can't afford to keep running? The guy who illegally "blessed" same-sex marriages in Massachusetts?

THAT Romney?

The Romney gang is dirt-i-fying Palin--mostly to head her off at the pass.

But Romney will have a larger problem than merely burying Palin.

It will be finding Conservatives who have any interest in him, whatsoever.

The Religious Right won't support a Republican who worships at a pagan altar. It's high time the Party stops palling around with Mormons who put Joseph Smith above Jesus Christ.

It's the blueblood countryclubbers, the Bushie Republicans, that want to do away with the social/religious conservatives. Quite frankly, they are embarrassed by them. They consider them to be hicks and hayseeds, bitter clingers to guns and religion. They're an embarrassment on the DC cocktail party circuit.

DO you have anything to back up your prediction? Romney is the favorite of Conservatives. Read on if you dare:

NEWSWEEK POLL 10/24/08

If John McCain is not elected president, which one of the following three possible candidates would you be most
likely to support for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012?

Sarah Palin 19%
Mitt Romney 42%
Mike Huckabee 23%
Other 16%

Any "poll" of that nature which does not include Thompson is a sham.

Likewise, any poll that does not include Bobby Jindal is a sham.

A Newsweek Internet poll. Speaks for itself. Seems The Mittster is who the Drive By Media want in 2012 for the Stupid Party.

If you look the poll up you will see it's based on automated calls to republican houses, not the internet. Obviously if it were an internet poll it would not be scientific.

Now regarding Fred, we all know he can't win a state (or even come in second). Jindal is another story, but you would think he must be at 16% in the other category.

Maybe Newsweak should try calling outside the Boston-Washington corridor.

What they define as a "conservative" and what I define are two different things. They hang a "conservative" label on the likes of Colin Powell, who's anything but, as well as the other twits who jumped on the Barack Hussein Obama bandwagon rather than get run over by it, in order to get invites to all the really cool cocktail parties in Georgetown.

Conservative is Middle America, not Peggy Noonan. Conservative is the rugged individuals of the Mountain West, not Christopher Buckley or Kathleen Parker.

Methinks you are one of those countryclub snobs a la Judge Smails. Here in the Racine area, it's the North bay/Wind Point crowd, a bunch of clueless losers that couldn't find their ass with both hands.

Damn, I thought Tommy was done running.

Peter you are really going off on a tangent and not responding to the poll comment I made. NEWSWEEK does not define the word conservative, nor do they use Peggy Noonan or Colin Powell in the poll. It's simply registered republican voters. You seem to be changing the subject and to an large extent burying your head in the sand with respect to the poll numbers and geography. Making up excuses will not make the data go away, Romney is the most popular republican of those polled.

Republican does not equal conservative. You should know that. Take the so-called "Main Street Republicans." They're not conservative. Naybe fiscally conservative but conservative overall.

Peter said...

I've voted for Democrats because they were more conservative than the Republican.

Once again, Republican does not equal conservative. The GOP nominates Romney, and the Chocolate Jesus is going to kick their ass once again ... don't know who the GOP will nominate when The Messiah runs for His third term.
