He's one of the least
principled politicians I've
met. But I believe Mitt
Romney might just save America

Daily Mail (UK), by Piers Morgan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/13/2012 10:32:11 PM

An extraordinary political earthquake struck America this week. Mitt Romney, widely assumed to be the ‘best of a weak bunch’ of Republican candidates, suddenly overtook Barack Obama in election polls. Remarkably for someone with a reputation as Mr Dullard, it was his brilliant performance on October 3 at the first of three presidential debates, where he scored the biggest win ever over an oddly downcast Obama, that propelled him into the favourite’s chair. Should Romney now win on November 6, America will not only have replaced its first black President with its first Mormon President.

And Piers is one of the most biased and dishonest talking heads.
Certainly, he is the most pompous and arrogant

Shut up, Piers.

We allow you to be here ...

... we don't need your opinion on our matters.

We took steps to end that some time ago.

As for character and integrity, Romney is the best man to run for president since Reagan and Truman. He's going to be a very good leader, and Lord knows we need him after the last four years.

If Romney's saying the truth about his country's Olympic management is "don't like your drapes", what is that lousy Brit doing commenting on our candidate?

BTW, unprincipled translates to 'doesn't agree with Piers Morgan'. We get it. Obama is honorable for 'evolving' on gay marriage, but Romney flipflops, got it.

Oh and Obama improving our image worldwide?? You must be joking. There were twenty embassies under siege recently, and we have 4 dead in Libya. If that's an improvement, I'll take a little less improvement.

Romney is the most principled man - and the stupid Morgan proves it in his own post - even admitting that the UK has nothing like him.

What a jerk. A stupid jerk. A blind stupid jerk.

Piers Morgan is more proof that liberals are not very intelligent people.

Free clue, Piers... Mitt has a long history of being a successful executive.

And another free clue: our Presidency is an executive position.

If Romney policies work, then it will be a Higher Power that saves America (Americans must save America and give the credit where Romney will IMO)and hence the world as that Higher Power wills.

Where does Piers find a more "principled" politician or all of those above Romney on his list?

Romney going to the base in the primaries and the center in the national is standard operating procedure that even a board dumb person like me knows by now following politics and the ins and outs and ups and downs.

Faulting Romney on keeping his campaign promises to the electorate of the most liberal state in the union is plain dumb if not hypocritical. He was elected to serve Mass. He pulled them rightward fiscally for awhile and modified their legislature's healthcare ideas. What more can be asked of a politician that he serves those who elect him and achieves what he campaigned to do.

If Romney were the ambitious and coreless individual some make him out to be, he would have switched long ago from the religion of his father's. Would have made his political rise easier, or would it?

Believing in a Higher Power than onesself cleanses souls? Nominal selection for political purposes? So Barack IMO. Muslim of his childhood, atheism of soscialism of philosophies or "Christian" of Wright's church? Still hasn't found a new one in Wash DC?? Hmmmn. IOW I don't see it as Piers does. But does he? He has to get a column out for a living on a deadline not as necessarily inspired by dynamic Poe-like inspiration.

Sometimes you guys behave like Democrats. Lighten up on poor Piers, who is hedging a bet here. Perhaps he's hoping that after President Romney is sworn in he'll get a job offer from Fox.

The title says it all, folks. The first sentence is CYA so Piers doesn't lose street creds with loony leftists. The second sentence is where it's at. Piers has offered a nice gift...and we're staring into its mouth, looking for cavities.

What part of "I believe Mitt Romney might just save America." did you have a problem with?

So do a lot of Britons and that's probably why Morgan came over here--to milk a fresh bunch of--what was that term about low information or something? You know the Honey Boo Boo crowd.

But scan over the bit you hate and read the whole thing. He's praising with faint damn, is the way I see it. More positive than negative, albeit grudgingly, as No. 16 has already observed.

Many of you a blasting Piers for his "least principled" comment. Isn't this exactly what many of us conservatives had reservations about Romney during the primaries? He was presenting himself as more conservative than he really was? I hate to say this, but I actually agree with Piers on this point. That's probably part of the reason that Ryan was selected as VP...to help offset that "flip-flop" charge. That doesn't mean I not going to vote for Romney, I certainly am. We have a much better chance of saving this country with Romney than we do with Obama.

Always thought Romney was a fairly good debater. The problem was his record and message, but it was clear he was for smaller government. If you want smaller government, its unclear that Romney would be the ideal choice. Romney was the best funded candidate, best organized, and wanted the nomination. He convinced enough conservatives, and he won.

Romney should win easily since Obama's performance has been awlful. Even the lefty media cannot save Obama's sorry rear end.

Novmember 6 is 'Impeach Obama' day.

#33 and others get it. Indeed Romney is a far superior choice to our Narcissist-in Chief but he is not now nor has he ever been a conservative. Morgan's observation about Romney's lack of core principle is stone cold reality yet the irrational animus toward Morgan won't allow the predictible ranters to accept a small favor; a Romney endorsement. They do him no favors by insisting Romney is something that he is not.

Obama hits Chicago Wednesday
for DNC fundraisers

President Barack Obama hits Chicago on Wednesday for two jumbo priced fundraisers to benefit the Democratic National Committee. Obama hosts a roundtable—I am told keyed towards business executives—at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse downtown where about 25 folks are expected; the tab is up to $32,400. The Obama roundtable is hosted by Mesirow Financial Chairman and CEO Richard Price. Later, Obama is the headliner at a dinner for about 55—donating up to $10,000--at the Lincoln Park home of Craig Freedman and Grace Tsao-Wu, who is an Obama major donor and fund-raiser.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tops a national poll of female candidates that Americans want to run for president. The Economist/YouGov survey asked respondents in a series of polls last week which female candidate not named Hillary Clinton they would want to run for president. Palin is first in the national survey with 9%, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and former Secretary of State and National Security Adviser Condoleeza Rice with 8%. Michelle Obama is fourth with 2% of the vote. In other national polls, Palin has the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters. If she does

Here is a seeming paradox of American life. One the one hand, there is a broad social-science correlation between religious faith and various social goods — health and happiness, upward mobility, social trust, charitable work and civic participation. Yet at the same time, some of the most religious areas of the country — the Bible Belt, the deepest South — struggle mightily with poverty, poor health, political corruption and social disarray. Part of this paradox can be resolved by looking at nonreligious variables like race. But part of it reflects an important fact about religion in America: The social goods

AUSTIN - The dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Monument at the Texas Capitol on Saturday highlighted the pain, pride and solidarity of those who served in an unpopular conflict. "They fought, they bled, all too often they died for their country. When they came home, there wasn´t any parades. There weren´t any picnics. Instead they were treated with indifference or, even worse, with outright scorn," said Gov. Rick Perry.

Officials previously set the number of missing people at 90, but said they expected that figure to drop dramatically as they worked to find people and cross-referenced a list that included partial reports and duplicates.

The Oscar-winning actress and singer says she´ll take her very first skydive on Monday - her 80th birthday. "That´s something I wanted to do all my life," Jones said Friday.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are
