‘I Refuse to Jump on the
Bandwagon of Attacking
the President’

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/8/2013 11:29:21 AM

Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke to Neil Cavuto today live from Utah where he is hosting a bipartisan summit. The former Massachusetts governor told Cavuto that his goal in the summit was to pull together people from both sides of the aisle to discuss their highest priorities. According to Romney, Washington isn’t addressing the most important issues to either Democrats or Republicans. In the interview, Romney addressed the scandals facing Washington, saying he refused to “jump on the bandwagon of attacking the president and everything that’s going on in Washington.”

Comments:
Here is just another example of why he lost. We just can´t ever "attack" 0bama because he´s such a nice guy. Heavy s/o This interview once again caused me to have to refrain myself from throwing things at my television. Why in the world would he invite David Axelrod and Gov. John Hickenlooper after he signed one of the strictest gun control laws in the country? It is all beyond me to understand it.

Wars are never won by bringing both sides together. It´s about victory and defeat. We are in a war. Romney never understood that.

Here is a case where the business frame of reference is all wrong. Romney is used to working with people who want both parties to benefit. Sadly, this is not the case in politics. The beneficiary is NOT any of the participants but the public at large. What may be a win win for the politicians is usually a lose lose for the public.

Compromise isn´t always possible. Either Keynes was right or Hayek was right. Either high taxes are good or they are bad. Freedom is good or freedom is bad. No compromise on these issues is possible. The right side must win by defeating the opposition. This is not Romney´s way. He would not have been a good President but he would have been a whole lot better than Zero.

If this is his attitude, he should just stay home and shut up. He is equally responsible for what is happening now because he wasn´t willing to fight for the Presidency.

What a shame.

Jeez, get off his back. What´s he supposed to do? What difference does it make if a loser starts whining about the guy that beat him. He has no influence, nothing he says will matter...let him stay classy. He lost, move on.

He was nominated because all the supposed conservative tough guys flamed out and were not ready for prime time. He was the best of a very weak group.

Pointing out what Obama is doing is not attacking him. Pointing out what is going on in Washington DC, IRS, State, DOD etc is not attacking. This country is going down the tubes with those in Washington thinking they are above the mere citizens, they are acting like dictators, princes, princesses, kings and queens and the rest of us are just serfs, existing to further those in Washington comfort and dictates. Nope Mitt you have it wrong. Hold your summits or whatever it is you people do and let the country go to hell in a handbasket because you don´t want to point out where the country is going wrong because it might be attacking.

Original poster hit my thoughts exactly. Thats why Mittens McRombamaney lost. He is not a fighter. He refuses to attack. He keeps turning the other cheek while his opponent slaps him silly and finally gave him the knockout punch.
He has warm milk toast for breakfast every day.

Pulling together people from both sides? That is a loser -- there is NOTHING from the left that is good for America.

Nice guys finish last.

When the Texas primary finally happened last year, Romney had already won. I went to the polls with the cheat sheet from the local Tea Party listing who they recommended voting for -- among others, Ted Cruz and Mitt Romney. I voted for Cruz even though a good friend of mine was on the ballot against him, but I still voted for Gingrich because I felt he was the best brawler in our bunch. I never had ill-will towards Romney, I just always felt he was too soft to win; too willing to go along to get along.

If they are focusing on the "highest priorities," it does not speak well of them that they are not concerned about the highest priority of American principles: freedom. What is going on in Washington, DC, is about the loss of freedom of ordinary Americans.

This group obviously has different priorities. Maybe that is why they lost the election.

But you didn´t have a problem attacking every GOP candidate in the primaries, did you Romney?

Romney has no credibility in politics...never has and never will. I hope he stays in his pretty mountain villa and doesn´t come back.
We are in the midst of a coup, as Rush so rightly stated yesterday, and it frustrates me to see and hear this man talk as if this is just another business problem to work out with a nice luncheon and a good tie.

Well said, #3. The problem with Romney´s approach to politics is seeing it as a business. He´s good at business...we get it. Stay there.

Romney does think a war is going on, the same war the GOP thinks is going on which is the war to silence the Silent Majority. The GOP and democrats are united on one side. Both the GOP and democrats wanted Obama to win. Obama winning silences the Silent Majority. Even NPR said Obama´s re-election saved Boehner. Karl Rove´s failures weren´t failures since victory was defeating the Tea Party. The GOP even has a PAC supporting Democrat candidates in primaries now. The GOP owes Obama big time because he helped them defeat the Tea Party. This is all about massive, EU style government.

He wouldn´t do it when it mattered, why should he do it now. His supporters can say what they like about his loss but the reality is that his failure to press the advantage after the first debate was a critical mistake that cost him dearly. Conservatives weren´t to blame for his loss, he and his team are to blame. "I´m not the other guy who isn´t such a bad fellow" isn´t winning campaign strategy. It was almost as though he saw he might win and then realized what it would mean if he did and then backed off.

Despite his book smarts, Mitt doesn´t have much street sense. Despite the role he and his people played in the trashing of Sarah Palin form the moment she was nominated as McCain´s running mate, I voted for him, because the alternative was unacceptable, but held my nose while doing so.

That´s our man Mitt, the Dudley Do-Right of the Republican party. He and John McCain apparently think they are members of a gentleman´s club or a consortium of scholars engaged in the disinterested search for truth. They do not know what they are dealing with and would have no stomach for it if they did. They cannot distinguish friends from enemies. I am afraid that when all is said and done they are nothing but wimps who can take it but who cannot dish it out. Either that or they are in denial and do not realize that "bipartisan" is one of those infamous code words we keep hearing about, the actual meaning of which is "radical Left Democratic." Or maybe they just overestimate the intelligence and good judgment of the American people - the same who have now elected Barack Obama their president twice. Maybe they -Romney, McCain and other clueless Republicans- think that refusing to lower themselves to the level of their radical Left opponents like Obama and most of the current Democrats will show the American people that they are the more mature, sober, responsible sort, politicians who are above ugly, dirty, nasty politics - and that Americans will come to their senses and support the Republican party.

Romney is a very decent person and would be a good leader. However, he lacks the instinct for going for the jugular. He´s too nice in other words. Perhaps he fears being thought of as mean but there are ways of going for the jugular without appearing to be mean.

There was one critical point in last year´s election where the Democrats´ narrative of the Republicans being "anti-woman" was getting a lot of traction. Romney had a chance to debunk it during the debate but failed to do so. He could easily have mentioned Obama´s friendly associations with rappers who refer to women in disgusting terms.

But, But, But Willard is the Only one who can beat Hussein, they said. Others tried to warn everyone about Progressive Willard and were torched, attacked, character assassinated and smeared for it. Get in line or get out we were commanded. A no vote for Willard was a Vote for Hussein we were told. We were supposed to get behind the candidate who lost to the candidate who lost to Hussein in 2008. We were told to get behind the candidate who ran to the left of Progressive DemocRat Ted Kennedy in 1994. Am I shocked by the latest revelations concerning Romney´s outreach to the Progressive Liberal DemocRats all for the sake of being President of the Go Along to Get Along Gang? No. Nothing Romney or his faithful flock of sheep here or in American Society will ever surprise me. They chose the deception over any better candidate, so when the bill comes due for their costly failure to America´s future, well it´s their responsibility to pay up. Romney was an abysmal candidate who really did not want to win. He should have stepped aside and given a better candidate a chance.

And what "better candidate" might that have been, #41? Romney made a couple of key mistakes and, to be sure, was not made to order for our increasingly dumbed-down electorate. But who would have done better? The only name I hear from time to time is Newt Gingrich, and I couldnt see him getting more than 1/3 of the female vote.


The real key to a meaningful victory (as opposed to one which merely allows our people to warm the Dems´ seats for a few years) lies in convincing large numbers of ignorant and irresponsible voters to get serious. Damned if I know how to go about that. IMO there is no potential Magic Candidate out there who can make that happen.

I am still skeptical that if Romney had been aggressive against Obama that it would have made a difference. I still think too many posters do not realize how most of the country relies on the Democrats for their information. They own the media and conservatives still don´t get it. On the other hand, Romney would have probably picked up more conservative votes if he would have not held back in why a focus on individual liberty and economic freedom was what we needed.

Very droll, #33. Dudley Do-right and the Consortium of Scholars indeed. #40 is glad Romney didn´t win (and thus that we´re stuck the current coup d´etat situation and Obamacare). Good thinkin´! #47 has unfortunately nailed it with the observation, "I still think too many posters do not realize how most of the country relies on the Democrats for their information." So true. I never see Fox on public or business TV´s even in establishments of those who are surely Republicans! Most of my friends would not dream of checking out Fox News, Drudge, or anything except CNN, NYT & the like. So they are only vaguely informed and in general misinformed. The Republican brand is considered distinctly uncool, uncouth, distasteful, hoary, and not the done thing, and this is a huge problem. Plus the Republicans have done nothing to educate the public to undo the false myths and memes about the party being the party of the rich, uncaring about the poor, and even possibly rascist. (At least I think they´re myths).

State to send voter registration

Heading off a lawsuit over compliance with a federal voting rights law, California officials have agreed to help millions of state residents register to vote. Under a deal announced Monday by several voting-rights groups, the state will send voter registration cards to nearly 3.8 million Californians who have applied for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The move will ensure that many residents can complete or update their registration in time for the June 3 primary election, representatives of the groups said, and bring the state into compliance with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. The law requires that certain

Yet in recent days, Cantor (Va.) has begun laying out a far more centrist agenda than the one espoused by the core conservatives who have long formed his power base.

SEIU Uses Federal Inspections to

Union organizers are showing up at Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections of an open-shop business that has been targeted by the country’s second-largest union. Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years.

I just had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with a Council on Foreign Relations group at the United States Special Operations Command in Tampa, Florida. The famed Admiral William H. McRaven started the briefing, followed by his staff. I expected to learn about Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and their air force and marine counterparts. I thought I would hear about the exploits of this 67,000-strong command operating in 84 countries, maybe even about the taking down of Osama bin Laden. But that was not to be. Instead, he and the other officers talked at length about their new mission, starting

Militant atheists — this is why people dislike you. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker believes he can do all things through Christ, but an atheist group charges that he cannot do all things through Christ on his official social media platforms. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has demanded Walker remove posts from his official Facebook and Twitter feeds that read, “Philippians 4:13.” “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” the verse reads. “This braggadocio verse coming from a public official is rather disturbing,” FFRF co-presidents Annie Laurie Gaylor and Dan Baker wrote in a letter to the governor. “To say, ‘I can

Ben Sherwood, the current president of ABC News who sits on the advisory board of the George Soros-backed Center for Public Integrity, will take over as president of Disney/ABC television in February of 2015. Sherwood will replace Anne Sweeney, who will be leaving next year after ten years. Sherwood will immediately become Co-President of Disney/ABC Television and continue his duties as President of ABC News. George Soros is a left-wing billionaire who has been convicted of insider trading. Soros is a funder behind such extremist organizations as Media Matters and the Center for American Progress.

Human Rights attorney and the director of the Lawfare Project, Brooke Goldstein, asserts that anyone who is brave enough to speak openly about terrorism and its connection to Islam may find themselves on the “receiving end of a frivolous and malicious lawsuit designed to silence and punish them." Goldstein claims over the last 15 years, Islamic groups like the Arab league and the OIC attempt to punish any type of speech they consider offensive to Islam. Moreover, she told Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and the host of Breitbart News Sunday that such groups pair lawsuits with acts

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

Authorities are searching for more bodies after a massive mudslide in a rural part of Washington state killed at least eight and possibly left more than 100 missing, while crews battle uneven ground and rising waters. A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes. Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim." John Pennington, emergency response managing director, said there are reports of up to 108 people missing in the mudslide but noted that number is unconfirmed. "This is a large

Congressional Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa,are planning another IRS coal-raking exercise for Wednesday, hauling the tax agency´s commissioner in for a hearing about the nearly year-old tea party targeting scandal.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended.

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

It’s not an early April Fool’s joke -- Business Insider has hired disgraced former NYC Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner to write a weekly political column, starting Friday. Hunter Walker, Business Insider’s politics editor, published the announcement on Monday, after teasing the news on Twitter by announcing that “something wonderful is about to happen.” The folks at Business Insider are clearly aware of the built-in entertainment value of hiring the scandalized politician, who is best known for sending an explicit photo of himself to an online mistress on Twitter -- and initially denying the photo was his.

During oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday which focused on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested employers who have moral objections to birth control should not provide health care coverage for their employees. “But isn´t there another choice nobody talks about, which is paying the tax, which is a lot less than a penalty and a lot less than -- than the cost of health insurance at all?” Sotomayor said during the presentation by attorney Paul Clement, who represents Hobby Lobby Stores

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service
