The Word From On High: Shut Up About Romney

He Wants Us To Shut Up

This is what is being pushed today in conservative media.  At first, I thought it was just me receiving emails urging me to begin rallying around Romney “for the good of the party” and “for the good of the country.”  Apparently, I’m not alone, and apparently, Mark Levin is receiving such emails too.  I thank those of you who sent me such emails, but I’ll give you my answer here, in the open: I have deleted your emails with extreme prejudice.  (That means that I deleted them, then undeleted them, and deleted them AGAIN…just for fun.) I actually printed one out that had been particularly annoying, and deleted it with a match.   The Romney Campaign does not pick the nominee on this blog.  Don’t email me as an activist for the Romney campaign, urging me to stop talking about Romney.  I’m going to talk about Romney’s extensive failings until he wins or loses.  I’m going to remind my readers of the truth about this candidate.  While a blog is like an “etch-a-sketch,” or like Mitt Romney(apparently the same,) I am not.  Conservatives don’t give up or give over that easily, and I’ll be damned before I’ll be prodded into it.

Even tonight on the promo for the 8pm-er (Bill O’Reilly,) he was hollering about “stop[ping] this stuff.”  I see.  When Mitt’s campaign staffer came out and shoved both hooves down his own throat on CNN yesterday, we should ignore it, get beyond it, and stop talking about it, but when Newt Gingrich said two words about Mitt Romney’s activities at Bain Capital, we should pile on for weeks on end.  Or, when Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife is trotted out to slam him by ABC News, we should talk about it for weeks on end.  When Rick Santorum mentions the evils of pornography as an aside, that should dominate the headlines and stories for weeks.  When Mitt Romney runs ads accusing his rivals of being less than conservative, while claiming he is, we should ignore Eric Fehrnstrom’s remarks to CNN.  I see…

Well, I don’t see!  I don’t see why Mitt Romney is somehow exempt, or why it is that the flubs and foibles of his campaign should be ignored, while his own operatives in media spend time hammering away on his opponents.  You Romney flacks(and I don’t here mean average Romney supporters, I mean his activist set) are full of yourselves lately, and it’s getting out of control, and there’s a reason your candidate’s negatives are on the steep incline: Your candidate has been repeatedly exposed as non-conservative, and yesterday’s remarks by Fehrnstrom are merely confirmations of what we’ve known.

It’s time to deal with reality. The conservative base of the Republican party doesn’t want another establishment candidate.  They may be divided over which of the others should be the anti-Mitt, but they’re sure it shouldn’t be him.  The reason is simple, and despite the cajoling, I’m not going away, and I’m not going to forget.  I’m going to remind my readers every time it strikes me to do so that Mitt Romney is fatally flawed.  Today, Barack Obama provided an example of what he’s going to do to Romney over health-care, and it’s why Romney will abandon the issue of Obamacare come the Fall campaign.

Get ready for it.  Get ready for it to be the issue Romney avoids like the plague, and Obama is already testing the waters of his campaign on that basis.  (More on that later.)  The thing to realize is that the Romney campaign and all of its myriad establishment surrogates are making a big push to kill this process off before they get to the states in which he’ll be weak.  More, the Etch-a-Sketch remark is doing substantial damage because it taps into what many conservatives worried about Romney from the outset: He’s ideologically flimsy at best, and I would argue simply vacuous.  While none of the writers who contacted me on Thursday on Romney’s behalf admitted or purported to be part of the Romney official campaign, I noticed none of them were subscribers to this blog either.  That’s the giveaway, along with the very narrow window in which all the emails arrived. Conservatives shouldn’t permit themselves to be bullied by the Romney campaign.   You can bet I won’t.

    THE RNC Chariman Reince Priebus was on Greta last night and Greta asked him how if MItt Romney was the nominee that he was going to be able to take on Obamacare since he was the author of Romneycare. Priebus said that Romney has stated that he would appeal ObamaCare or “most of it”. I got the impression that Priebus and others like Bondi have already started pushing that Romney will not completely do away with ObamaCare but rather tweak it.

    Good for you. The internal contradictions of the Romney Campaign are going to be exposed if Romney is the nominee.

    Santorum’s statement of today may have been an exercise in shark-jumping. However, he revealed an essential truth: because Romney essentially stands for nothing but his own ambition, he is likely to lose to Obama, who at least stands for something.

    Zima never beats Coke. Romney is the Zima Guy.

    Good for you!

    I completely agree. Today’s Drudge headline on Santorum is another blatant example that Matt has become nothing but a shill for the Romney campaign. I am amazed by his blatant one sided reporting on this campaign in support of Romney especially since he is such good friends with Mark Levin and was with Breitbart. The masks continue to fall at the Republican Masquerade Ball. I just hope Santorum and Gingrich stay in this fight to keep Romney from getting the delegate count. I continue to hope that Sarah has something planned but that may just be my desperate wishful thinking.

    We don’t need another teflon man in the White House.  Newt isn’t recognized now because the media has done everything within their power to stifle his message and hide the man.  I want to see this go to convention, in spite of the tears shed by Dick Morris that it will ruin everything and guarantee another win for Obama.  I think that’s bullcrap.

    Thank you. all I can say is DITTO.God help us if the choice this fall is between a liberal democrat in the republican party and a marxist in the democratic party, a win win for godstate worshipers, a lose lose for everyone else. 

    “Well, look, either you’ll have an extremist conservative, be it Gingrich or Santorum, in which case I think it will make a big difference which of the two comes in,” he told Chrystia Freeland of Reuters in a videotaped interview. “If it’s between Obama and Romney, there isn’t all that much difference except for the crowd that they bring with them.” George Soros The crowd they bring in with them will be establishment statists.

    Thank you for your principled stand and trustworthiness and thank you for telling us that you are being pressured. 

    I was a Hillary supporter in 2008 and there was nothing so disheartening then to go to what, the day before, was your favorite blog full of like minded Hillary supporters only to find an inexplicable switch to supporting Obama.  And worse, to find that that favorite site was now letting people post comments whose sole purpose was to run down and verbally kill anyone who said boo about Obama. 

    So thank you again you’re are a lifeline.

    Romney and the RINO GOP will cost us this election. After everything this country has been through with the Obama destruction machine, I’m amazed at how quick people will jump on a bandwagon that’s very similar to that of Obama’s policies.
    Let us not forget that Santorum may be a social conservative but his pathetic voting record was closer to Obama than Reagan.
    I’m sticking with the man that cared enough to give us the Contract with America and has been the one conservative constant throughout the years. Gingrich may not be perfect, but I know he’s always followed the Constitution and our founders in his role in leadership. He’s the only man capable of balancing the budget the only time in our lifetime and squandered by greedy politicians like Santorum.
    Romney and Santorum are the last thing this country needs at this dangerous time in America. Only Newt makes Obama come to him. Who do you think will win the debate with Obama if Mitt and Rick are too chicken and not sure of what they stand for if they refuse to debate Newt?
    This isn’t a beauty contest. This election will determine freedom or tyranny. No time for RINO’s, weaklings or amateurs.
    Time for America to become the tough, no nonsense country that is good but not a pushover. America needs NEWT GINGRICH.
