Romney Rips Into Obamacare, Russia’s
Combative Role in the World

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:Honeybadger, 1/5/2014 9:47:09 AM

On Sunday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney joined Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday for a wide-ranging interview about a number of political issues that dominated the landscape following the close of the 2012 election cycle. Romney dug into the Affordable Care Act’s roll-out, the contraception mandate which he signed into law in Massachusetts, and the Winter Olympics in Russia. Asked what “bothers” him the most about the ACA roll-out, Romney said that the onerous coverage requirements frustrated him the most. “it’s not just that the president tells people that they have to buy health insurance,” Romney said, “it’s that

Romney had to overcome voter fraud, the msm, and the religious bigots who refused to vote for a Mormon.

He was right about his every assertion.......Benghazi, Russia, General Motors......

On this question, despite Leftist Wallace being persistent in pushing the questioning into irrelevancy, I commend Willard on his response.

Wallace discussed HusseinCare and RomneyCare consistencies with Willard. Willard ever the Social Progressive Politician stated that he would see HusseinCare replaced with Federal Guidelines and MANDATE that ALL AMERICANS be REQUIRED to PURCHASE HealthCare Insurance and LEAVE to the States the actual minimal coverage required. Willard pretty much endorsed RomneyCare requirements at the National Level which is NOT much different from HusseinCare. I see Willard running again in 2016. He STILL WANTS what he feels is his by right and he will NOT be denied his turn.

Just think about where we´d be now if Mitt had been elected. He is a good man, not a great campaigner, but a good man. He eviscerated Fauxbama in the first debate. That was reality and the lo-fo´s, the takers, the LSM, et al. couldn´t care less. They wanted the empty suit and the food stamps. Mitt would have grown the economy and, first and foremost, brought jobs. Jobs? Obamination doesn´t want jobs; they want handouts. The dim elites? They want to assuage their own guilt; the rest of us be damned.

Whatever his reason for disappearing after the first debate and keeping silent on the unConstitutionality of everything OZip did and does....it is inexcusable. Most likely he did it because "consultants" told him to...therefore he´s not fit to lead.

My take: there is a huge difference between a great executive and a great leader. Romney is a great executive. Unfortunately, he´s a poor leader.

To be a great leader, one must have a vision that resonates with people, be able to articulate it simply and powerfully, and to then be that vision´s champion, defending it forcefully, and in so doing, energize the people to follow it as a shared mission. There. Just so.

America needs a great leader. Desperately.

The most important lie which the media is pushing very hard is this: "Right-Wing, constitutional conservatives are dangerous and crazy."

While the "Left-Wing" stables are populated with the most extreme candidates like....oh, maybe...Barack Obama or the very PIAPS herself.

We, nonetheless, are constantly reminded that it would be suicidal for the right to run a true conservative.

Funny, how they don´t take their own advice while we keep letting them coach our team into one failure after another.

Romney was done in by the GOP approved strategist advisors to his campaign. You can hear when a candidate starts listening to them...the candidate´s speech becomes halting (weighing every word) and his ideas and principles become watered down.

I would like to know exactly who was advising Romney and how many important elections said advisors have won. I doubt they have won many. Mostly what those guys do is muzzle the candidates and place ad buys which make said advisor a lot of money.

I´m with a few posters here. I´ve watched the 47% speech 20 times. The msm and dims hammered him on the "i don´t care" part. Totally taken out of context and he didn´t defend himself clearly on that. He didn´t care about trying to get their votes because he knew they were a done deal for obama. it wasn´t because he didn´t care for them as Obama and MSM spun it. "Oh look he said he didn´t care about them". Anyway..he should have picked Fred Thompson for vp. he may have one more shot at it but should insist on no repb. debates which only helped the dims.

While I would not necessarily expect another run for the WH by Mitt, 2016 will go back to the same expectation that we ALL get off our behinds and vote out progressivism regardless who is the repub and/or independent candidates. Romney´s visibility today is good to see, but next week he will disappear from the tube thanks to the msm.

Romney, a good man who would have made an excellent administrative POTUS, which we could use a dose of) failed to show stern stuff a.k.a. Reagan, when he backed off attacks on Oblamo´s deceptions regarding Benghazi. He also should have taken the lead on exposing O´s nonexistent CV and his association with radicals all his life. What´s left? Not much and that´s what he offered as a campaign. Very sad for us all. Do not bring him back for a redo.

If he would just shut up and go away, we wouldn´t have these controversies for the MSM to yak about all day long. They see him trying to run again in 2016 and are already starting to kick him in the teeth. I have said it before and I concur with #4 that he WILL try to run again. Maybe he can get McPain to be his running mate. Or Miss Lindsey!

Acton astutely observed ´Good men are never great men´. Case in point is Willard along w/his Sancho Panza, Paul Ryan; two grinning Boy Scouts masquerading as leaders.
Their common attribute was their naivete´ driven by their progressive left world view. Losers both. The usual suspects insists their demise was the result of fraud(malarkey) and religious bigotry (an ignorant slander). Both lost for a simple reason. Voters knew in their very bones that both were frauds who stood for nothing, so they decided to stick w/the corrupt devil they knew. Speaking of lo-fo voters, obviously they´re alive, plentiful and well in the ossified GOP!!!

I can imagine the Republican establishment still looking for a moderate. Their choices seem to be Christie, Bush, and Romney. Who wants it the most and would have the best chance to win? I won´t be surprised if Romney runs again. Maybe he will learn how to fight this time. He certainly knew how to fight conservatives.

I doubt this nation needs a Christie, Bush, or Romney, however.

I agree Mitt will not run again but he is keeping himself "relevant" politically for future government appointments. He will be a good soldier for the party as mid-terms draw closer. Despite protestations, the family does not mind the spotlight as we note Mrs. Romney´s pretty high profile media tour with the cookbook, the son´s photoshoot/interview for the front page of the Daily Mail, etc. we know politicians all do specific media at certain times for a REASON. We just don´t know what it is yet. As another poster truthfully stated, Romney is a nice man, an astute executive but he is not a leader. He proved that in the last election cycle by listening to the dumbest group of political strategists ever.

I read an opinion poll not too long ago asking voters who they would be willing to vote for: based on sex , race, religion, etc.
96% said they would be willing to vote for a black (it was probably 98% before Obama).

Only 80% said that they would be willing to vote for a Mormon. 18% would not.
Now they tell me.

#31 – Good grief! Some of you posters are as blind in your party loyalty as the unhinged and idiotic as the left-wingers.

#20 points out the poor debate performance by Romney in rounds 2 and 3. The difference in his style, delivery, and substance between the first debate and the others was quite astounding. A 180 degree turnaround. The debates are the only unfiltered presentation of candidates available to the public. The Republican Party continually approves rabid dimocrat operatives as debate monitors. Romney and the GOP should have jumped ugly all over Candy Crowley. Why didn’t they? Why did Romney fight the conservatives in his own party harder than he did the communist Obama?

#27 brings up the major issue of voter fraud, which is rampant and unchecked with the dims, yet the GOP does nothing. Why? Because they agreed decades ago to never challenge dim vote counts.

Obamacare should have been the major issue in the campaign, but the GOP selected a candidate that put into place the same policies, which made it hard for Romney to attack Obamacare. He was fine with government run health care, the only difference being the level of government, federal or state. Not much difference in the candidates there.

I know it’s hard to admit that “progressivism”, the wolf in sheep’s clothing that is leading us into communism, is also the underlying guiding principle of the Republican Party. I know that denial is the easy way, and to recognize that we have no true representation or political solutions being offered by the GOP Old Guard is a terrifying and horrible realization. Those of us who have crossed the Rubicon understand and sympathize, but we urge you all to WAKE UP!

Got TEA?

I like Romney and his family. Although I voted for him, the thought always bothered me that with the Old Guard influencing and creating strategy for his campaign, his run was McCain 2.

He obviously has the talent and business background to be President, but I was shocked and dismayed when he claimed that he thought he was winning after it was over.

Believe me, when you are in a campaign for elective office, you should always know where you stand and adjust as you go along. The RNC and its operatives are still living in a different era. They should just butt out.

The Republicans Job One right now should be voter verification. Ignore that at our peril.

Read this thread and you will understand why the GOP keeps losing. How many allude to Romney failing them personally? We have to do what´s best for our Country and remain together as a WHOLE constituency. Too many of us vote for what WE want, not what America needs. Some are still unforgiving, as though Romney let them down personally. Hogwash. We let the Libs dictate the terms, then steal the election while we were finding fault with our candidates.

Mitt would be great for future economic or jobs appointment in a sane future administration. He´s definitely not running again, but it sure helps some here keep their blood pressures up. Unless we get out and uniaminously support our next 2016 candidate instead of this Purity drivel it´s "Hello Hillary" and that´s the reality. I´m hoping it´s Ted Cruz, but I´m not sitting out elections, #wearingmybigboypants.

Ronald Reagan knew what to do when faced with an injustice on the debate stage--said he, "I paid for this microphone, Mr Green" and his fate was sealed.

Mr Romney had this same scenario with Candy Crowley in debate 2 and failed the test AFTER numerous pit bull attacks on GOP rivals!! That moment showed the nation how he thinks. Voters know what they want and Mr Romney wasn´t it.

This thread is one big reason why I don´t post on Lucianne much anymore. To the posters who just know why Romney lost, or think he´s unfit to lead because he listened to others, or he´s still an idiot because he didn´t go for the throat in 2 of the 3 debates, etc., the only thing I can say is you must be doggone happy with Obama. Just put a big L on your forehead because, if you keep up the fighting over establishment Republicans versus tea party, you´re going to lose even bigger in 2016. Neither one has the numbers alone to beat out the cheating Dems.

2008 is done and overwith. From the get-go, Romney was not going to win it. Just as McCane was not going to win it. Both were terribly flawed candidates for obvious reasons and the main reason they won the primary was becasue, unlike Democrats, the Republican Party holds open primary elections and we get swamped with liberals- this is designed specifically by the Democrats union activists to pick out candidates for us. Here in Nv, as a Republican, I could not get into a single caucus room it was so full of democrat blacks screaming and yelling and swearing, making terrible nusiances of themseves deliberately. It was madhouse politics totally out of control- it was awful. I left without voting. Result- the worst possible candidates won here. Next election will be the same- we still hold open primaries.

probably the last word on this thread. Any of you making comments here that did not show up and vote for Romney contributed to the second term of Obama. No, Romney was not perfect but, no one man is.

I have had my fill of so called conservatives looking for the perfect candidate and if they don´t get it they don´t vote.

I would have voted for the local school janitor for president over Obama if he was willing to cut spending and overturn Obamacare.

You got what you deserved by not showing up! So, shut your yaps and get on with it and you sure as hell better show up in 2016 and vote for the Republican candidate no matter how imperfect he or she is or you are going to end up with President PIAPS! Nuf said.

Love, Truth, Honor

#40 makes a powerful and self evident point. "The guiding philosophy of the GOP is progressivism"; and has been since 1856!
But the usual low info types; terminally stuck on stupid w/their GOP=Good and Dem=Bad mantra; will never hear it.
So the critical question for 2016 and beyond is simple. Which is our vital entity, the Republic or the GOP???

Obama to Headline
Al Sharpton’s NAN Conference
Truthrevolt, by Bradford Thomas    Original Article
Posted By: Honeybadger- 4/8/2014 7:25:04 AM     Post Reply
President Obama is lending his political support to fellow community organizer Al Sharpton by headlining the MSNBC host’s National Action Network (NAN) conference this week in New York. Obama’s choice to headline the conference underscores the close ties of the two leaders and provides an increased sense of political legitimacy to the controversial leader and his much-maligned organization. Sharpton’s conference is held in April "not just to commemorate the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination, but to honor his legacy by proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change." The NY Daily News reports that along with President Obama,

Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd of community college professors that he appreciated their work and he understands how difficult of an occupation it is due to the fact that he sleeps “with a community college professor every night.” “I thank you for what you do and I mean that sincerely. Jill is probably right, I think I’d have the same attitude did I not sleep with a community college professor every night, Biden said. As the audience laughed, Biden interjected. “Oh, the same one, the same one,” he said, waving his hands in an attempt to clarify. “The same one.”

We live in a strange time in American politics. It wasn’t that long ago — like, maybe two years — when a cancer victim struggling with insurance coverage would receive a sympathetic ear from the news media.They might even send one of those “consumer advocate” teams to shove cameras in the faces of the insurance officials and demand to know how they could be so heartless.What the media would surely not do, after hearing of a cancer patient struggling with insurance, would be this:Contact the insurance company.Receive assurance from the insurance company’s PR spokesman that everything was just fine.

A co-founder of the Pinkberry frozen yogurt chain who was convicted last year of beating a homeless man with a tire iron over a tattoo he considered disrespectful was sentenced on Friday to seven years in prison. Young Lee, a 49-year-old South Korean kick boxer-turned-architect who parted ways with Pinkberry in 2010, was convicted in November of assault with a deadly weapon, along with special allegations that he caused great bodily injuries to his victim. A spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Lee was sentenced to the maximum of four years in prison for the assault, with an

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said Saturday that a missing passenger jet was steered off course after its communications systems were intentionally dismantled and could have potentially flown on for seven additional hours. In the most comprehensive account to date of the plane’s fate, Najib drew an ominous picture of what happened aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, saying investigators had determined there was “deliberate action by someone on the plane.”

Dems´ new 2014 plan:
Neutralize Obamacare
Politico, by Dan Hohmann    Original Article
Posted By: HoneyBadger- 2/17/2014 10:42:25 AM     Post Reply
Democrats know their biggest problem in this year’s midterm election is Obamacare. So top party operatives have settled on a strategy to try blunting the GOP’s advantage: Tell voters Republicans would make the problem worse — raising prescription drug prices, empowering insurance companies and even endangering domestic violence victims.The battle plan, details of which were in a memo obtained by POLITICO, recognizes the unpopularity of the Affordable Care Act. But it also banks on voter fatigue with the GOP’s relentless demands for repeal and counts on poll-backed data that show many Americans would rather fix Obamacare’s problems than scrap it

News last May that Sebelius had asked business executives and nonprofit groups to donate to Enroll America, a nonprofit organization formed to help encourage millions of Americans to sign up for the new Obamacare insurance exchanges, provoked an uproar among Republicans on Capitol

Backlash builds against CNN for

George Zimmerman is stepping back into the media spotlight — and that is generating sparks of controversy.It’s understandable that plenty of people never want to see his face again. He is the man who killed Trayvon Martin, and while he was acquitted of murder in their fatal street encounter, the fact remains that an unarmed black teenager is dead. Since the Florida trial that became a media sensation, Zimmerman has had several run-ins with law enforcement. After his wife left him, his 27-year-old girlfriend called police and said he had aimed a shotgun at her, and authorities arrested him and temporarily confiscated a shotgun, assault-style rifle and three handguns.

Woody Allen is continuing to put on a brave face following abuse allegations from his adopted daughter — even attending a Broadway musical where one audience member brazenly yelled, “I think he did it!” Allen, wife Soon-Yi and their two daughters Bechet and Manzie attended the “After Midnight,” matinee starring k.d. lang at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Saturday. The moment the show ended and the crowd stood for the ovation, the famously shy director, who is nominated for Best Original Screenplay for “Blue Jasmine,” and his family made a beeline for the door.

GENEVA — An Ethiopian Airlines co-pilot hijacked a plane bound for Rome on Monday and flew it to Geneva, where he wanted to seek asylum, officials said. The Boeing 767-300 plane with 202 passengers and crew aboard had taken off from the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, and landed in the Swiss city at about 6 a.m. (0500 GMT). Officials said no one on the flight was injured.Geneva airport chief executive Robert Deillon told reporters that the co-pilot, an Ethiopian man born in 1983, took control of the plane when the pilot ventured outside the cockpit. “The pilot went to the

It should come as no surprise to anyone that the White House has chosen — for the 13th time in a year — to make changes to the Affordable Care Act delaying its full implementation. The law is a mess — passed by Democrats, most of whom hadn’t bothered to read the legislation, without a single Republican vote. Nonetheless, the latest changes announced this week should embarrass even the most sycophantic ObamaCare enthusiast. The act was sold on the promise that the estimated 40 million Americans who were without health insurance would finally be covered. The law forces employers with 50

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
