Former senior aides to Mitt Romney have hit back at the ´craven hypocrites´ in the Republican party who just days before the election were clamouring for jobs in a Romney administration and are now belittling him. ´I´m sure Governor Romney is finding out now who his real friends are,´ a former adviser told MailOnline. ´There were one or two well-known figures who were late committing to support him, were the most eager to curry favour when it looked like we would win and are now out there trashing the governor.
Gingrich is a brilliant debater and has clear eyes in most regards re: the Country and the Consitution, but he has also proven, over and over (dumping various wives for the next ones, one being in a hospital bed with cancer at the time) that he will say anything (the debates) to push himself........though I really love the man in some regards, THAT is what stopped me from supporting him.
These so called "fair weather" friends are the kind no one needs and I will not support them because their trust level is zero and their motive appears to be self-serving. It would have been better to have said nothing than to feed the media who will do anything to get a fellow Republican to bash another Republican. Sure there were mistakes made in Gov. Romney´s campaign as there are in every campaign. Some Republicans just could not pass up an opportunity to get their face on TV even if it meant stabbing a decent man in the back. The fact that we constantly eat our own is a fatal flaw in the Republican Party that the progs will always exploit. Aren´t you so called leaders of the Republican Party smarter than that? You are pathetic.
#2. In the interest of accuracy, Gingrich and his wife "in the hospital" the divorce had been filed a long time before, and agreed to by both and the finalization papers had to be signed. She had no problem with the timing for signing them, so why should you? Their attorney meters were running and both wanted it over with.
I don´t get trashing Romney for speaking the truth. Does Newt really think he has a future in politics? Or is he just being mean-spirited because Romney beat him in the primaries? I don´t get Jindal, either. He will need all the friends he can get if he gains traction as a candidate because the Democrats are going to try to destroy him.
What Romney said was the truth, and who better to analyze the election results than a man whose whole career was spent in going in to analyze a business´s situation. His words will, most unfortunately for the country, prove to be 100% accurate. May God have mercy on us.
But the other senior adviser, who declined to be named when criticising senior Republicans, singled out Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Newt Gingrich as among those who had been quickest to lambast Romney.
Piyush Jindal is the most loathsome creature in US politics. He defecates on his own heritage for political power, mangling the name of his own brother to show how much of a ´real American´ he has become [http://www.progressive.org/mag_wxap052208]. So of course he will turn on a dime against Romney.
Romney was our last best hope. He did nothing wrong and could have been the right man for the job at this point in history. One week before the votes were counted , he knew he would win and the dims knew they were behind. In Florida one county had approx 176000 registered voters and 245,000 votes cast. In Ohio there were more registered repub voter than dims, yet somehow all those people somehow decided to vote dim? I think not. Around the entire world our military voted at least 70/30 for Romney, but in Virginia they were split. That´s total BS! In Philly some districts has 100 percent of the registered voters voting 100 percent for Obamie. Not one drunk, insane, drugged person made a mistake and accidentally voted for Romney? None of this passes the smell test. It´s over folks. They now control the vote counting.
Not only the deathbed divorce fable but the one that says his debating skill would propel him to the presidency. In order for that to be true we would have to actually have presidential debates . Not the facade that the media and the left (redundant, I know) has foisted upon us. When faced with someone with extraordinary debating skills as Newt does indeed possess, the ´loyal opposition´ would merely orchestrate an event that would in no way resemble a debate.
Jindal is a craven Haarvard fella. I wouldnt trust him farther than i can spit. Gingrich, well we know what he and Calista are. Rubio? Power hungry kid with an interesting biography and absolutely no experience. Where have we seen that before? If these guys are the future, it´s over.
I feel most certain their preference would be to blame Gov. Palin but 4 Senate competitors out of 5 won their race (of those endorsed and called on Palin for help). Those endorsed by Karl Rove of historic fame and the elite/establishment, each and everyone LOST their race. Romney owns the loss! We held our nose again and voted for him as we did for McCain. Romney did nothing to reach out to Paul´s supporters nor did he try to court the conservative standards.
Romney was a good candidate and he was right the would never get some of the 47% vote. They want their free stuff that Obama gave them, they do not want to work!! . It was not a totally fair election as someone posted otherwise he would have won. As to reaching out to Ron Paul voters, they were never going to vote for Romney, that is my belief. As to Newt, Christie and Jindal, thankful they showed their true colors early , now I can mark them off my short list along with Jeb Bush. May God help us in 2016.
#22 no one will ever get your vote. To label a politician as a self-serving opportunist is redundant at best.
You make your claims against only Republicans and we get Obama. One day you and other Republicans will realize that you are looking for your standard of perfection. At the same time people like you sit home in protest and don´t vote, you enable candidates like Obama to get elected. It would make some think you really want the Democrats to control every area of your life.
Some republicans keep asking us to give up, bit by bit, what our standards are in order to reach a candidate that ultra liberal leftists would find acceptable. That does not make sense. Romney was right when he said the 47% who do not pay taxes will have no interest in his tax cutting proposals. And the republicans turned on him. Republicans and conservatives have to articulate what their alternative is to a political party that seems bent on destroying the USA. And that alternative better not be "let´s be democrats" (which is what they are saying right now). Social liberalism is very expensive.
This is far from the first time Newt stuck his foot in his mouth. Biden´s relative? As for Bobby J, he will be hiring a new public relations group to ´fix´ his thoughtless comments. He has probably even called Christie for some suggestions. .... Like the NJ wonder,I suppose the LA gov. will next be promoted on The View, Letterman and Leno. As for the SNL thing, though ... big mistake.
I was really high on Chris and Bobby, but this sneak preview of their ´real´ personalities is a campaign disaster, and I doubt it can be repaired.
The message that erases what happens between now and 2016 sounds an awful lot more like Jindal, Ryan Walker Christie or Palin than it does warmed over east coast blue blood republicanism.
If you think Romney was that special and came that close, then you should fire up Romney 2016 right now.
Eastablishment republicans wanted to make sure that the t party populist conservatives didn´t get a foothold in the worst way. Congrats on your success. And by all means, don´t let anyone tell you you were wrong.
Took an instant dislike to both Christy and Jindal. Christy´s default position is being the playground bully. And what ego it must take to keep eating after forcing your family to live with the fattest man in the State.
Jindal is a transparent opportunist whose greatest ability is talking a line that has a success rate. Fern bars and criminal law offices are full of the type. Besides, I never trust a man whose neck reminds me of Audrey Hepburn.
For all the folks who trashed Mitt for not being a real conservative, he sure sounds like the real thing in those moments when he´s not supposed to be quoted. 47%. Free stuff. Gifts. He pretty much nails it when no one is supposed to be looking. And I think by 2016 a lot of people even in the press will be saying outright "what have we done?"
Currently the entire Republican bench is busy blowing itself to bits by their own utterances and actions. Good. Blow up the whole party and start from scratch. The house has become so infested with rats that the only solution is to burn it to the ground and rebuild. And as far as I am concerned, give Mitt the job of drafting the new blueprint. I don´t trust a single one of the rest.
And as for that most despicable turncoat Christie, his prescience allowed him to be the first to display his craven hypocrisy and lack of trustworthiness. Congratulations. King Rat.
Haven´t posted in quite a long while, but #13 completely nails it. The election was stolen by the evil that is the Obama regime. Our country doesn´t recognize decency anymore. The fact that our ambassador and Navy SEALS were murdered less than eight weeks before the election and the only media that cared was FoxNews? And Hurricane Sandy, ´memba that? Obama´s Katrina; people still without power in many places...you´d think it was just a little rainstorm. We are screwed. Mitt was right; everybody wants "free" stuff; it´s a part of our society now. Work? ´Suckas!
I would like to thank Mitt and Ann Romney for a dignified campaign based on freedom. Our Communist adversary used four years to give the idle FoodStamps, Obamaphones, free abortions, two-year Unemployment Insurance, permanent Disability, and many other gifts on our taxes. Add to that voter fraud and Amnesty for illegals and Baraka Hussein Obama was going to win no matter what Mitt Romney did.
Thank you for your service Mitt. Out country voted to turn the lights out with open eyes. With two more progressive/commie Supreme Justices there will no way back to a constitutional path.
I´m also in #13´s camp which ,to me, is the worst place to be. The libs will only refine their ability to control elections.After seeing Franken steal the election in my state I have felt our biggest obstacle in 2012 was voter fraud.Early voting, same day registering,precincts showing more people voting than live in the area, its all insane. What do you do besides outfraud the fraudsters? Everyone needs to bring a dead relative with them when they vote next time.
´Former senior aides to Mitt Romney have hit back at the ´craven hypocrites´ in the Republican party´. Blah, blah, blah. That´s odd, I thought those former senior aides were the biggest finger pointers after the election, and they are still blaming everyone else for their incompetence. The candidate is rarely any better than the people working for him and although Romney did his part, his staff completely failed in running the campaign efficiently or even knowing what the other side was doing to undermine them.
My personal view is the campaign was stolen and the campaign seemed to do nothing to counteract the cheating. Candidates, and the aides most of all, should always know how a campaign is going, and should correct problems if they ever want to work in that capacity again. It wasn´t Newt or any other outsider who is to blame for the fiasco. Answer is above. Geeesh, I despise the RNC/GOP heads, they never take responsibility for anything.
Back in early 2008 , Jindal was on one of the Sunday shows and he equivocated on whether he would support the eventual Republican ticket or Obama and said that that he had voted for Democrats before. That was a red flag. OTOH-My son has encountered Jindal stateside and in Afghanistan and always found him to be extremely gracious and sincerely appreciative of the military ..unlike some of the politicians and the Chooomander in Chief who only use the troops for photo ops. I have a friend who is first generation American, very accomplished , great guy , but, a low information voter. He voted for Obama because " Republicans are anti -immigrant " and as the son of legal and hard working immigrants from India, that offended him. Jindal might feel the same way on some emotional level. The Democrats rarely go public in trashing each other , unfortunately too many Republicans knock each other over rushing to a camera so they run down fellow Republicans. That has to stop-it only helps the media and the Democrats. If Jindal or Gingrich or Christie has a problem with Romney-they should use the phone not the microphone.
After Germany´s defeat in the Great War, numerous members of their establishment advanced the canard that Germany lost because she was ´stabbed in the back´ by communists, Jews and pacifists on the home front; a theme Hitler advanced to justify the Holocaust. In fact, their defeat was the direct result of gross incompetence by the Prussian General Staff. Now Romney has been decisively defeated by arguably the worst POTUS in our history. We´re told it was the result of stay at homers, of anti-Mormon bigots, of Hurricane Sandy and the current favorite of Romney´s sycophants; voter fraud. But facts are cold and truth inconvenient. Romney lost for a very simple reason; he was an incompetent candidate and trendy lefty running as the nominee of a center-right party who would say anything to anyone, anytime and immediately contradict himself. He had no core values, a reality the majority of voters fully grasped. So they stuck w/the incompetent fraud they knew. As for the voter fraud malarkey; Florida, Ohio and Penn, among other Battleground States, have Rep. Executive Officers (Gov, Lt.Gov, AG and Sec of State) plus Rep. Legislators (Pres of the Senate and Speaker of the House.)Yet we´re supposed to believe that all these officials conspired w/the likes of Axelrod to cover up ´billions´ of fraudulent ballots. Really? Like the German establishment of the 20ies; today´s GOP leadership is desperately trying to save their kiesters and so will advance any preposterous argument they think might stick to the wall. But don´t tell the paranoids.
Hypocrites also can´t stand a man who speaks the truth doesn´t consort with crooks and sluts.A man who gives away more then he spends and really cares about freedom.Let the self righteous far right who think the term conservative only applies to them smirk at his loss as they alone will never win an election. Even those detractors acknowledge he is termed a Godly man so consider maybe that GOD saved him from the DC cesspool to later fill a more important mission as this nation lands broke and wounded in need of simply maintaining life.He is a builder not a destroyer. WE are as guilty as the liberals for we are allowing a corrupt agenda to sway us from our own vow to run a decent nation.

I too am convinced that fraud "won" Obama this election. There are too many reports of voter turnout being higher than the number of registered voters, and too many reports of electronic voting machines repeatedly defaulting to an "Obama" vote, and too many reports of military votes being surpressed.
We did not have a legitimate election, which is why we have a FOUR STEP election process. Step one is the popular vote. Step two is the Electoral College. Step three is ratification of the vote by the Congress. If 17 States´ electors fail to meet and vote, then the election goes into Step four, in which the U. S. House of Representatives elects a president, and the U. S. Senate elects a vice president.
Even those close to Romney were surprised and upset that he lost, like Newt and Bobby Jindal. Even though I supported Mitt with my checkbook, I was confused on why he didn´t call on the Tea Party, or call Rush´s program like other Republican candidates have done. When Mrs. Romney, who I thought would have been an excellent First Lady, said in her speech at the convention, "I love women!" my first thought was "Where is Sarah?" If we don´t analyze why we lost we will have an even harder time winning next time. Yes, the fraud played a major role in Romney´s defeat too.
Konstantin Kakaes had a lot of good evidence to work with for his article debunking the promise of Amazon’s drone deliveries. The FAA doesn’t allow autonomous flight. Drones are too small and unreliable. They’ll cost Amazon a fortune to maintain and oversee. Kakaes had so many facts in his favor, but he left out a big one: Birds are going to hate these drones.(Snip)The difference for Amazon’s drones is that the birds will be chasing them. Unseen to us, the skies are checkered with fiercely defended bird territories. Open-country raptors—hawks, eagles, kites, harriers, etc.—don’t take kindly to interlopers on their
In a major rant at radio host Sway Calloway this week Kanye West went full tilt against the fashion establishment that is preventing him from unleashing his artistry-in-apparel on the world: “I am Warhol. I am the No. 1 most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now, who’s going to be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more?

PHILADELPHIA--A horse pulling a buggy with an Amish family aboard in rural Pennsylvania was struck by a bullet fired from a moving car and later died, police said on Tuesday.(Snip)"At the time, they believed it was a firecracker," Weaver said. "They didn´t realize it was a gunshot." The family continued home, where they realized the animal had been injured. "When they got to the farm, the farmer noticed blood from the horse´s mouth," Weaver said. The horse died before a veterinarian arrived.
The Treasury Department said on Thursday that it would sell its remaining shares in General Motors by year’s end, allowing the government to finally sever ties to the bailed-out automaker a few months sooner than expected.(Snip)Barring a sudden jump in G.M.’s stock price, the government is on track to lose about $10 billion on its investment. So far, it has recovered about $38.4 billion. By contrast, other rescue efforts, including the bailout of the American International Group, have generated profits for taxpayers. But administration officials have long argued that the aim was not to make a profit from its investments
WASHINGTON — A mutiny has erupted among photographers who cover President Obama over what they say is the White House’s increasing practice of excluding them from events involving the president and then releasing its own photos or video.(Snip)“As surely as if they were placing a hand over a journalist’s camera lens,” the three-page letter said, “officials in this administration are blocking the public from having an independent view of important functions of the executive branch of government.” The Obama administration has embraced social media as a way to get its message to the public beyond the traditional news media.
Secretary of State John Kerry just scrapped 190 years of U.S. foreign policy in Latin America, casually declaring the Monroe Doctrine is over.Why didn´t he just ring the dinner triangle for Russia, China, Iran and their terrorist catspaws to set up shop, too? "President James Monroe," Kerry told the Organization of American States in Washington Monday, "declared that the United States would unilaterally, and as a matter of fact, act as the protector of the region... And throughout our nation´s history, successive presidents have reinforced that doctrine and made a similar choice. "Today, however, we have made a different choice. The
After allegations were made about the legitimacy of the author´s account of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya last September, Simon & Schuster has halted publication and sale of The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Solider Who Was There, by Sgt.

AVANNAH, Ga. — The uninsured pour into Memorial Health hospital here: the waitress with cancer in her voice box who for two years assumed she just had a sore throat. (Snip) Now, in a perverse twist, many of the poor people who rely on safety-net hospitals like Memorial will be doubly unlucky. A government subsidy, little known outside health policy circles but critical to the hospitals’ survival, is being sharply reduced under the new health law. The subsidy, which for years has helped defray the cost of uncompensated and undercompensated care, was cut substantially on the assumption that the hospitals
The Affordable Care Act’s website debut has been compared to the Titanic disaster. The analogy is fair, in that the ship’s captain demonstrated an inexplicable lack of interest in and respect for the risks presented by the iceberg-infested waters through which his vessel was sailing. (Snip) As many parallels as there are between the fateful maiden voyage of the Titanic and the launch of Healthcare.gov, however, there is another colossal technological disaster that may be even more apt: the catastrophic 1986 explosion of the space shuttle Challenger just 73 seconds after liftoff. Exhaustive postaccident analyses revealed that the immediate cause
Insurers say the early buyers of health coverage on the nation´s troubled new websites are older than expected so far, raising early concerns about the economics of the insurance marketplaces. If the trend continues, an older, more expensive set of customers could drive up prices for everyone, the insurers say, by forcing them to spread their costs around. "We need a broad range of people to make this work, and we´re not seeing that right now," said Heather Thiltgen of Medical Mutual of Ohio, the state´s largest insurer by individual customers. "We´re seeing the population skewing older."(Snip)The average enrollee age
Here’s the latest leading theory about those mystery barges in Portland and San Fransisco: They’re party boats for launching Google Glass, the Internet giant’s computerized eyewear.The barges, and the odd-looking structures on top of them, have been linked to Google in documents from the Coast Guard in New London, Conn., and in an apparent slip-of-the-tongue by a Coast Guard official in California.(Snip)But new evidence indicates the barges will be towed to large coastal cities, where wealthy customers will be invited aboard for exclusive looks at Google Glass. The wearable computer, still under development, would enable people to communicate with the
The four-story structure that has been docked in Portland Harbor since Oct. 10 is connected in some way to Google, according to Coast Guard documents obtained by a Connecticut newspaper through a Freedom of Information Act request. (Snip)The purpose of the structure and the barge it rests on is not described in the documents, which do reveal a plan to operate the vessel in various ports, the first being New York Harbor. Tugboats from Portland towed the barge from New London, arriving Oct. 10 at Rickers Wharf on Portland’s waterfront, a facility owned and operated by Cianbro.Cianbro’s Chief Executive Officer
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative.

A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said.

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.

On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met.

The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N.

The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
