Thanks, Mitt Romney, for
Campaigning on Big Ideas

Forbes, by Avik Roy

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/25/2012 2:08:00 PM

Mitt Romney isn’t going to be the next President of the United States. But the familiar spectacle of the post-election circular firing squad shouldn’t blind us to the many good things that Mitt Romney brought to the 2012 election. First and foremost, he had the courage to campaign on the most pressing domestic policy problem we face: the explosion of deficit spending caused by our health-care entitlements. No modern Republican presidential nominee—not even Ronald Reagan—has ever attempted anything like it.

The one hazard of living in a democracy is that stupid, uninformed, uninterested, self centered people can vote. The dems got them out.

One of the saddest things about this year´s election rout was to see this honorable, exemplary man lose the chance to save us.

We shall never see the likes of this man again in a presidential race.

More´s the pity.

Nice article that makes excellent points.
As a former Perry supporter ,the more I learned about Romney´s actual positions and personal history ,
the more I liked the guy.
He was unfairly tarnished and demonized by the media and truth be told, by many supposedly on our side.
Like Limbaugh did for for months and months.
Limbaugh would often allow callers to say the most heinous and untrue things about Romney
as if they were facts.
FTA -" Romney could have shrunk from the Medicare debate, as even Ronald Reagan had, but instead Romney rose to it.
For this honorable effort, Mitt Romney deserves our gratitude."
Sadly ,what # 1 said is a reality and it´s only going to get worse.

He was up against pure evil and needed to push back forcefully.

For some time I have thought that the man who took the oath of office in January 2013 would turn out to be the most despised in American history. If anyone had the chance to keep us from the abyss, it was Mitt. But not even he could beat back the entrenched DemocRats in the Senate, and the Prog-unists throughout the judiciary. So, maybe it´s better this way. The DemocRats will well and truly own the crash.

Romney was beaten by politics.The pity of itis that the politics were dirty. The republican establishment can thank itself for yet another failure - not so much for pushing Romney who has the financial cred. for the job, but they failed to do the suport work needed to defeat Democrats and their dirty tricks. When will the Rs ever learn that you must fight fire with fire. An upright man such as Romney made a good target because he simply didn´t have it in him to take Obama to the cleaners when opportunities to do so arose.
The republican party needs to be taken behind the woodshed and kept there till they learn a few home truths.

Before he was the GOP candidate, Rush would snort in derision at Romney´s name. It was blatant and daily. He never said a bad word about him, but you knew where Rush stood - Against Mitt.

Mitt never articulated the oppressive regulations that were strangling small businesses, he just said he´d get rid of them. Not specific enough about alot of things he would fix was a problem.

Rush never hurt or attacked Mitt Romney personally. He stood up for conservatism. What a hypocrite he would have been called if he had lied and called Mitt a Reagan conservative when he wasn´t. Once Romney was our candidate, he made every effort to help beat Obama. Stupid, ignorant voters? Yes, so... isn´t it about time GOP figured out how to talk to them instead of using the same tired play book every four years? He was neither as bad a candidate as some are unfairly saying but neither was Romney anything like Ronald Reagan.

What #4 said. Also agree with #15. Anyone who didn´t understand what Rush Limbaugh thought about Mitt Romney wasn´t listening to him. I began to listen to Rush in 1988 and never heard such disdain toward a Republican candidate. Not even President George H.W. Bush, whom Rush didn´t like either. The same goes for for Levin, Ingraham and even Hannity during the most important primaries in the history of this Country. By the time they "came around" it was too late for them to pretend to respect, OR support him. BTW, President Ronald Reagan is gone, he can´t come back. If someone can name a better candidate out here than Mitt Romney was, I´d really be interested in getting on the band-wagon early......Thought so.

Neither Limbaugh nor Levin damaged Romney. Both had some early reservations but were more than complimentary for the last several months of the campaign. I can’t for the life of me see how Romney lost, and also believe we have missed out on a potentially great leader. Instead, look at what we got, and weep.

I see Rush is still fooling people. If he didn´t actually badmouth Romney, he sure let callers do it. Thinking back these many years of listening to Rush, I have discovered he doesn´t really pick many winners. I am not fooled by him anymore, nor am I fooled by Laura Ingraham and the other "purists." Don´t listen to any of them any more. Another big reason is the thousands of commercials on their shows. Does Rush still sell his tea? I sure got tired of hearing about it when I did listen to him.

George Romney would have been proud of his son´s effort. I certainly was and am also depressed that a man of his integrity and experience isn´t our president. I believe fraud played too big a part in this election, either in registration before the vote or in unfound or lost Romney precinct ballots in targeted states.

I thought this was going to be a thread giving thanks to Mitt Romney for campaigning on big ideas, as it should be. I´m sad to see that it is a Rush Limbaugh bashing thread for some, and done in a way that leaves a false impression.

Just my observation: Rush Limbaugh is going to have to go some to match some of the truly hateful personal attacks on Sarah Palin, and a number of other prominent conservatives including Rush, by posters here in this salon.

Some here still do not have a kind word to say about Palin or Rush, and other conservatives, under any circumstances.

Guess y´all must have missed the callers tearing into Rush because they thought he supported Mitt Romney over their chosen candidate before the nomination, and some who criticized him for supporting him after the nomination. That wasn´t because they thought Rush was badmouthing Mitt Romney.

Rush has said that he never endorses a candidate before the nomination. A number of callers criticized him for what they thought was harsh treatment of their favorite candidate.

Also, there are some pretty good "manipulators" among the moderates, and they have no equal when it comes to attacking Republicans with whom they disagree. I´d venture to say that Rush has been kinder to Mitt Romney than some of his "friends" who turned on him after the loss.

Thank you, Roy, for thanking Romney. I thank him too, and as for his mistakes - everyone makes them.

I stopped listening to Rush a long time ago, plus wrong time slot for me. I listen to Hannity regularly & don´t remember his ever saying a word against Romney, or being less than supportive. Rush is obviously a great conservative intellect, but too polarizing for me. The left easily uses him to pound us with.

That was the beauty of Romney - he was someone even many Dems had been able to sort of admire, at least before he became such a threat.

I was pretty mad at Rush because he was very anti Romney. I almost cancelled my subscription to his newsletter. He did come around after Romney was nominated. But he had already done a lot of damage.

Rush is not always right, although he thinks he is and apparently so do some others. They listen "all the time" and never heard what they were listening to.

Russia Says Its Building Naval

A senior Russian defense official has announced that Moscow is looking to build military bases throughout different countries in Asia and the Western Hemisphere. According to RIA Novosti, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Russia is looking to build military bases in Vietnam, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, the Seychelles, Singapore and several other countries. “The talks are under way, and we are close to signing the relevant documents,” Shoigu said, according to RIA Novosti.

Obama fires verbs at Russian tanks

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

Five months ago, when he was clearing the decks for his quixotic U.S. Senate campaign, Texas Rep. Steve Stockman parted ways with his campaign treasurer. Jason Posey, who´d worked with Stockman since his first stint in Congress (1995 to 1997), had filed a false report, disguising his own donation (and that of a colleague, also working for Stockman), crediting it to a relative. Posey was out. But he didn´t vanish completely. Two months before leaving the Stockman camapign, Posey had incorporated a new group called the Center for the American Future.

Who is Un-American? Harry Reid

Once upon a time we had the House Un-American Activities Committee. Most people, certainly most Democrats, would call that an ugly chapter in our history. But those who were called “un-American” during the 1950s were (or were believed to be) traitors in the pay of a hostile power. Calling them “un-American” was not such a stretch. Since then, the term has gone entirely out of fashion. Can you imagine the howls of outrage if President Bush had called those who disagreed with his Iraq policy “un-American”? But now, suddenly, it is back: Harry Reid, one of the country’s top three Democrats,

Obama-Hagel defense budget is
based on dangerous guesswork
Washington Examiner [DC], by Jed Babbin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/1/2014 5:22:31 AM     Post Reply
Release of the 2014 Pentagon budget should have been an epiphany for America´s allies and enemies. It continued the process of reducing America´s military to pre-World War II size, but -- as we can infer from the remarks of Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel -- there´s some sort of strategic realignment close at hand. Inklings of that realignment were detected before Hagel made his announcement. When President Obama warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that he shouldn´t invade Ukraine, there was a faint echo of the “red line” he drew for Putin in Syria. The Russian strongman probably smiled at Obama’s warning, remembering

Sicilian mob ordered hit

The Sicilian mafia wanted Rudy Giuliani to sleep with the fishes. Crime boss Salvatore “Toto” Riina ordered the hit on Giuliani back in the 1980s when the future New York City mayor was a mob-busting federal prosecutor, Italian newspapers are reporting. The source of that story is mafia turncoat Rosario Naimo, who spilled his secrets this week to Palermo-based prosecutors. Naimo said Riina was alarmed that Giuliani was joining forces with Sicily-based prosecutors like the legendary Giovanni Falcone, the papers reported. So Riina dispatched Naimo to New York City and told him to get the okay from the Gambino crime family to rub

In the aftermath of the abominable media coverage of Arizona’s religious liberty bill, an editor shared his hypothesis that journalists care about freedom of speech and of the press because they practice them. And journalists don’t care about freedom of religion because they don’t. But one of the most interesting things about modern media’s deep hostility toward the religious, their religions, and religious liberty in general is that press freedom in America is rooted in religion. The John Peter Zenger case of 1735, argued successfully by Andrew Hamilton, wasn’t just an important legal event but an important symbolic event

Stop underestimating the crackpot ideas the race-left will cook up. The latest in-fashion example of America’s structural racism is the criminal background check. The complaint goes like this. Racists who are looking for ways to engage in employment discrimination against blacks can use criminal background checks in hiring. Since blacks have been convicted of crimes in greater percentages than their population generally, using a background check is a stealth way to discriminate against blacks. Stop laughing. Consider how many nutty ideas you laughed at decades ago which are now the status quo. While you were busy laughing,

U.S. assessment of Crimea:

My mistake. I thought the White House might try to make all of this go away by accepting Putin’s phony pretense that it’s a domestic uprising among ethnic Russians in Crimea, not an invasion by Russia. In fact, says the White House, there is a foreign element to the new troop presence — but it’s all good so far because Crimea isn’t resisting. In other words, to save face over the fact that there’s nothing much we can do to stop this, the official U.S. line is that this can’t be an invasion if the Russians are being … greeted as liberators.

Joint Special Operations Command launched four Hellfire missiles into a convoy in central Yemen in December, killing 12 people. U.S. officials initially claimed they were targeting Shawqi Ali Ahmad al-Badani, an alleged Qaida operative, and even Human Rights Watch acknowledged that some terrorists may have been present. (Snip)Rogers and some other critics say the president may even be in denial about the ongoing reality of the war, perhaps because he´s a little too eager to "complete his narrative" about decimating al-Qaida.

The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom. Her lawyers and a band of supporters, including

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
