Romney re-enters GOP fray
NBC News, by Michael O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/7/2013 8:59:17 PM

The presidential election ended almost nine months ago, but Mitt Romney re-emerged Tuesday to continue his fight against President Barack Obama’s policies and assert himself as a Republican Party elder at a time when the party is struggling to find its path forward. Romney sought to re-establish himself as a force within the GOP with a speech in the politically crucial state of New Hampshire, weighing in on the fractious battles to play out within the Republican Party since last November. The former Massachusetts governor most pointedly sought to tamp down a charge led by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-

Comments:
The Go Along to Get Along G.O.P. Presidential Candidate for 2012. I’m sure we should listen to him. After all, he knows what it takes to win elections, right? Says he was at a fundraiser. For which team? Romney is the Godfather of Obamacare.

Mitt, step back into the shadows. We do not need, nor do we want, ANYTHING you have to offer in this war for the soul of America. You have proven yourself to be NOT a True Conservative and believe me, you are NOT needed.

Romney would have governed well. And I agree with his caution about government shutdown. Remember the last time that happened? It did not go well for the GOP. Romney´s last line is so true, it is painful.

If Rick Perry, the original ´sure thing´, were the nominee we would have likely lost the House - and of course the Presidential election by Goldwater margins. Barry would now be ´The Won´ on steroids. As far as the rest of that motley crew of ABR nomination wannabes ... they were only sequentially scraped from the bottom of the barrel after the embarrassing Perry meltdown. Believing at the end that someone like Santorum could prevail against the (still) mighty MSM was truly a triumph of hope over any kind of historical experience.

As someone who believes that Jeff Sessions is the best current US Senator - with Cruz a close second, and McCain the worst (in the GOP anyway) nominating a super intelligent Romney with a little bit of MA mud on him was really the best we could do. Anyone surviving that hideously drawn-out freak show would have to question whether the nomination was now worth anything at all - especially against a well-entrenched incumbent beloved by ´journalists´ everywhere.

Running a pretty good campaign after the convention, Mitt underestimated the power of the MSM (fat Candy anyone?), social media, and the ability of Barry´s ward heelers (not a misspelling) to bring out the low IQ voters. He should have also picked another VP. Probably Portman.

Does anyone have numbers or percentages of the conservatives or republicans or anyone else who might have voted for Romney? I admit I am a novice in things political, but something went terribly wrong. Were the polls wrong, were we only looking at polls we wanted to believe in? I know there was voter fraud, but Philadelphia and Pittsburgh alone could not have swayed the election for DL. When Romney came to PA, there were crowds unlike anything DL had. I still feel like I am in never-never land. Can anyone direct me to the best analysis as to what went wrong?

Granted, the lackluster campaign run by Romney was not a winner, but remember, VOTER FRAUD was rampant in 2012. I held my nose to vote for him........no way can say I was his cheerleader except for the fact that he was the lesser of the two evils. There is no way he would have been as bad as what we had seen and are continuing to see.

It is time to remove the Fraud:

Gov. Romney, you are not a dumb man. You´ve succeeded in business with all the trappings to prove it. But in politics the only correct decision seen was your declining (after your loss) to serve with our foe and his group of common criminals. Some may jeer you for that. But some feel that your decision was the correct one. Who would work their tails off for the illegal won only to be thrown under the bus after doing so. Just being in the same room would be akin to sleeping with satan That must have been a tough call for you to make. Work for the bad guys or see our country destroyed from within. If you had made the opposite decision, would any be better off? This is seriously doubted. In the meantime, please keep your opinions private and speak only when spoken to.

Granted, the voter fraud and disgusting media bias played a role in his loss, but it sure would have been nice to have a candidate who went as hard after Obama as he did his challengers in the primary.

Don´t you know why Romney lost??

He lost because he cut a gay kid´s hair when he was in high school!!!

He lost because he gave a union guy´s wife CANCER and she DIED!!!

I know this because it was all over the main stream media.

Face it, no Republican was going to win against Obama, as long as the MSM had anything to say about it.

Maybe Romney could have fought back harder and nastier, but it wasn´t in him. He would have been a great president, but as a candidate, he was too nice a guy.

Putin´s Challenge to the West
Wall Street Journal, by Robert M. Gates    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/25/2014 7:27:27 PM     Post Reply
Russian President Vladimir Putin has a long-festering grudge: He deeply resents the West for winning the Cold War. He blames the United States in particular for the collapse of his beloved Soviet Union, an event he has called the "worst geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century." His list of grievances is long and was on full display in his March 18 speech announcing the annexation of Crimea by Russia. He is bitter about what he sees as Russia´s humiliations in the 1990s—economic collapse; the expansion of NATO to include members of the U.S.S.R.´s own "alliance," the Warsaw Pact; Russia´s agreement to

Russia´s military staged training exercises on Tuesday in Transdniestria, a breakaway sliver of Moldova that is a focus of tension following Russia´s annexation of Ukraine´s Crimea region. NATO´s top military commander said on Sunday he was worried that Russia might have its eye on Transdniestria, a largely Russian-speaking region that borders western Ukraine, after seizing Crimea, which has a narrow ethnic Russian majority. The Interfax news agency quoted a spokesman for Russia´s Western Military District, Colonel Oleg Kochetkov, as saying that Russian forces stationed in Transdniestria had "conducted an anti-terrorism drill and practiced operations to rebuff an attack on their military base".

ObamaCare v. Religious Liberty
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/25/2014 7:23:32 PM     Post Reply
The Affordable Care Act returned to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, as the Justices heard a major challenge to the law´s birth-control mandate. Five and maybe even six Justices across ideological lines seemed discomfited by the Administration´s cramped conception of religious liberty. In 2012 the Health and Human Services Department published a regulation interpreting an ObamaCare provision to require all for-profit employer health plans to cover 20 contraception methods, including four that some religious believers consider abortifacients and sterilization. The combined cases of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius are challenging the mandate under a 1993

Delusional Harry Reid Blames

: Harry Reid blames Russia´s annexation of Crimea on Republicans who didn´t act fast enough on a sanctions package. But he ignores Obama´s appeasement as president and push when a senator to disarm Ukraine. The Senate Majority Leader´s latest claim is consistent with other utterances out of his parallel universe, including calling Stage IV cancer patients liars about Obamacare´s collateral damage and asking why we´d want to save one child with cancer. "Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea, and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases," Harry Reid said Monday as the Senate

THE HAGUE, Netherlands - With Moscow showing no signs of backing down from the standoff over Ukraine, President Obama today took a swing at Russian President Putin´s status on the global stage - describing Russia as simply a "regional power." "America´s got a whole lot of challenges. Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors - not out of strength, but out of weakness," Obama said at a joint press conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

Nuclear Terror: President Obama deflects concerns about Russian aggression with a crack about "a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan." His diplomatic wishful thinking on Iran risks exactly that. When it comes to squaring the president´s purported goals on Iran with his policy, what his friend Stevie Wonder sang about Richard Nixon 40 years ago fits like a tailor-made glove.

House Democrats to Try and Force
Floor Vote on Immigration Overhaul
Roll Call, by Emma Dumain    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/25/2014 7:12:39 PM     Post Reply
House Democrats are poised to offer their third discharge petition of 2014 Wednesday, this one to force a floor vote on an immigration overhaul bill. They’ll need to get 218 signatures on the petition in order to compel GOP leadership to bring up their legislation, which mirrors the Senate-passed immigration bill, except for some tweaks in the border security language. The likelihood of that outcome is approximately zero: Even the few House Republicans who have broken with their leaders to sign on as co-sponsors to the House bill are not expected to embrace a procedural tactic that would embarrass the majority party.

Reaganomics Vs. Obamanomics:

Despite adding almost a trillion dollars to our national debt and failing to keep the unemployment rate at or below 8% as advertised, liberals consider President Obama´s signature stimulus package — the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act — a success, in part because of the number of jobs it "saved." Beyond the obvious failings of the president´s plan, now more than five years old, the approach is illustrative of how presidents sometimes try to stabilize an economy using fiscal policy. But there is a right way and a wrong way. Sen. Ted Cruz recently remarked on two very different fiscal policy outcomes: "Reaganomics means

Listening to President Obama speak, you´d think Russia´s seizure of Crimea, which was part of Ukraine, was no big deal. On Tuesday, he went out of his way to dismiss Gov. Mitt Romney´s comments during the 2012 presidential campaign, in which he described Russia as "America´s No. 1 geopolitical foe." "Russia´s actions are a problem," Obama said.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

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
