Vetting Mitt Romney – Video

It's about time...

This one just came over the transom and I thought readers might want to take a look.  It’s a pretty sharp critique of Mitt Romney’s record, and I think the more conservatives know about his record, the less attractive he is as a candidate.  The video touches on a number of stories I’ve covered here over time, so much of this will be at least vaguely familiar. There has been a great deal of vetting of Mitt Romney’s record on the Internet, in blogs and on conservative websites, but the problem is that most of it never gets into the mass media.  They’re simply not interested in showing Republicans much of his record as it pertains to governance, including particularly the Romney-care debacle under which the people of Massachusetts now live.

Viewing time is approximately three-and-one-half minutes:

    The MSM is “not interested in showing Republicans much of his record as it pertains to governance” RIGHT NOW, but just wait until Romney is up against Obama.  ALL of this and more will come out in spades. They are just waiting until the actual “coronation” to use class warfare and hiding money overseas and… and….   I’m with you – we need to carry on with this process and not just assume “the inevitable”. I am planning to vote for Newt in Texas and, patiently hope and pray that he will stay on message about the economy and Mitt and/or Rick will implode on their own.  Rush has said several times that the brokered convention may not be near as bad as some of the “sky is falling pundits” like Morris & Rove say it is. There just may be some value in delaying the eventual barrage of liberal, Demoncratic lies and distortions about the R nominee as long as possible, no matter who it is.

    Great post. Thank you for putting this video out hope many, many people watch this. Perhaps you should send a copy to the GOP establishment in DC, a copy to Rove and the RNC who are pushing Romney down our throats.

    Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk show hosts have expressed
    their support for Senator Santorum. Senator Santorum said he is a
    Conservative and not a candidate of the Republican Establishment; a
    candidate of conservatives loyal to the Republican Party and not ready
    to align with the new American Conservative Party. Rush Limbaugh has
    said repeatedly, “I am not a Republican, I’m a Conservative.”  Rush
    Limbaugh has often criticized and condemned the main-stream news media
    for failing to vet President Obama while intentionally but secretly
    ignoring skeletons from Santorum’s closet. For reporters supporting
    President Obama’s reelection to ignore Santorum’s less-than-honorable
    past is expected; the President has a better chance of winning against
    Santorum than against Romney: But Limbaugh’s hypocrisy is inexcusable
    because he does the same things he publicly condemns others for doing.

    Here are examples of vet-able stories ignored by Rush Limbaugh:

    Santorum put the screws to elderly veterans. http://www.disabledveterans.org/2012/01/22/santorum-put-the-screws-to-elderly-veterans/

    Santorum: “Libertarians have this idea that people should be left
    alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep
    our taxes down, keep our regulations low, and that we shouldn’t get
    involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues.
    That is not how traditional conservatives view the world. There is no
    such society that I am aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism
    and that it succeeds as a culture.”
