Mitt Romney attacks President
Obama amid 2016 buzz

Boston Herald, by Hillary Chabot & O´Ryan Johnson

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/3/2014 4:41:10 AM

STRATHAM, N.H. — Mitt Romney — suddenly the subject of wild speculation about a third presidential run — leveled a broad-based attack at President Obama in this first-in-the-nation primary state, while a new national poll shows more Americans wish the former Massachusetts governor, not Obama, were president now. “We’re really at a crossroads,” Romney said. “We’ve a president ... laying out a course for America that has resulted in people having a hard time finding a job. People are having a hard time making ends meet, because wages aren’t going up even as their costs are going through the roof. People

Please run, Gov. Romney. You have the stature and even the lofos now know that the MSM tricked them into voting again for Obama. There is not one GOP candidate who is strong enough to beat the MSM disinformation campaign and the Democrats except you!

I´ve spoken to Christian ministers and priests. They don´t want a Mormon and didn´t support him the last time for that reason.

Goodness no! He should have spoken up the last time he ran for president instead of going home after the last debate and sitting out the rest of the campaign. He´s a big scardey cat. Stay home and play with the grandkids. About all you´re good for.

I will NEVER believe that Mitt Romney actually LOST the election in 2012 any more than I do that thad cochran WON his last election! The deceit of the "msm" and the outright stolen votes (120% voting in some black precincts) should be a clue to even the most dedicated Romney haters. BTW, ANY "christian" OR "priest" who would make statements quoted are deserving of NO respect from ANY quarter. They are doing G´d´s work? Hardly.

The most visible "Christian minister" is Mike Huckabee, of course, and he made his ugly anti-Mormon prejudices so much a part of his portfolio that he disgusted me and, obviously, a lot of others.

"People are having a *hard time* finding a job"?? Mitt, why not tell the truth? There are NO jobs to be found. You didn´t have it in you last time around, and you sound the same, and things are exponentially worse. I don´t care that you´re Mormon, I don´t think most would, hell we´ve got a closet Muslim now. But you still sound like you´re running for church council, not against a radical, anti american, anti Christian, hateful, angry, communist, illegal, thug who is hell bent on destroying us. He´s probably on drugs too.

I was listening to a local Boston radio talk show yesterday. The host claimed that at least Romney would have compromised with our congress. He certainly "compromised" with our local, corrupt legislature when he was governor. He did exactly what the dems told him to do.

I truly believe that Mitt Romney is a good man, husband , father and grandfather. I also believe that he would´ve made a good president. I know he lost because of at least three things. Massive voter fraud (people have been arrested in Ohio for voting more than once). His inability to take Obama on with both barrells loaded ie the debates. Dopes like Rove and Cunningham saying that it was in the bag with a weak ground game. My advice to you sir that if you plan to run again come out swinging and get better advisers.

A kidnapping and ransom case in the Carolinas suggests just how active Mexican drug cartels have become in the U.S. Today, authorities identified three purported members of a Mexican drug cartel as the alleged kidnappers of a South Carolina man last week, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District of Court of South Carolina. The American hostage, who authorities said was drug courier for the cartel, apparently was kidnapped on July 9 and held for ransom, with demands for as much as $400,000 coming from unknown cartel members in Mexico. After nearly a week in captivity, the hostage was found chained

Why Israel Is Winning This War
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/16/2014 5:37:32 AM     Post Reply
The reluctance of Hamas’s “military wing”—a misnomer for the more extreme elements of its extremist leadership—to accept the cease-fire designed by Egypt is, well, logical. Let’s admit it. They do not wish to accept defeat, and the Egyptian terms are a defeat for Hamas. By attacking Israel, what has Hamas wrought? Considerable damage was done to Gaza by Israeli air power, and Gazans will be picking up the pieces for months if not longer. But Hamas proved unable to kill one single Israeli with its hundreds of rockets, and all its special tricks—tunnels, longer-range rockets, a drone—also failed. Nor could

House Republicans are moving quickly to address the growing humanitarian crisis on the southern border, possibly holding votes as soon as next week. As Congress moves closer to the monthlong August recess, the speedy action sends a clear message to Senate Democrats: Take it or leave it. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), incoming Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and a group of top lawmakers working on the border crisis are set to file a bill that very closely mirrors the legislation crafted by Texas lawmakers Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar.

WASHINGTON • In one of his first interviews since his defeat in 2012, former Rep. Todd Akin told the Post-Dispatch on Monday that he has not contemplated running for office again, and instead has focused on closing his Senate campaign and writing a book that will be released today. In a 15-minute telephone interview, the Republican Akin compared his downfall in the 2012 Missouri Senate race to that of former Sen. Joe McCarthy, R-Wis., who in the 1950s was discredited after making allegations that many thought overstated Communist influence in the U.S. government. “I use McCarthy as an example of someone who

Imagine a volunteer for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Arkansas, trying to assist Rep. Tom Cotton in his race against Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor, knocks on a voter´s door in Little Rock and discovers the potential GOP supporter owns a gun. In the world of voter outreach, it´s a potentially crucial piece of information; with the right pitch from a group like the National Rifle Association, for instance, it could prove decisive in getting that voter to pull the lever for Cotton. Except, in years past, it´s also the kind of information that the two separate groups would never share

Two of the larger social trends of our time — the growth of payday gambling and the legalization of marijuana — have two things in common: They are justified as the expansion of personal liberty, and they serve the interests of an expanding government. The ideological alliance behind these changes is among the strangest in U.S. politics. Libertarians seek to lift governmental restraints on consensual acts. State governments seek sources of revenue without the political inconvenience of requesting broad tax increases. Both find common ground in encouraging and exploiting the weaknesses and addictions of citizens. (And business interests and their lobbyists,

Although a fierce critic of Barack Obama, former Vice President Dick Cheney does not support calls from some on the far right of his party to impeach him, saying it would simply create a distraction. "I´m not prepared at this point to call for the impeachment of the President," Cheney said in an interview with CNN´s "The Lead with Jake Tapper." Cheney believes Obama is "the worst president of my lifetime" and that "Jimmy Carter might have been a better President," but impeaching him is not going to accomplish much. Both Obama and Carter are Democrats, while Cheney is a

Republicans fired back today at Democrats’ plans to counter the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision that allows a contraception exclusion for closely-held companies with religious beliefs, saying they will propose a measure of their own. It was a dose of election year reality, dashing Democratic efforts at drawing bipartisan support for their plan. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., said the dialogue has been driven away from the religious freedom rationale of the ruling and distorted for political leverage. “I really am disappointed that my colleagues on the other side of the aisle would try to score election-year points by misrepresenting what the Hobby Lobby

Israel Targets Homes

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip -- Israel on Wednesday intensified air attacks on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip following a failed Egyptian cease-fire effort, targeting the homes of four senior leaders of the Islamic militant movement. It also told tens of thousands of residents to leave Gaza´s border areas ahead of more strikes. The Palestinian death toll in nine days of fighting rose to 204, with some 1,450 wounded, Palestinian health officials said. On the Israeli side, one man was killed and several people were wounded since the fighting erupted on July 8. The renewed bombings came a day after Israel initially

But Channel 9´s Justin Gray found out it´s a lesson that an Orlando agent with the Transportation Safety Administration seems to have missed.

As the conflict between Israel and Hamas escalates, attention is focused on those individuals whose heroism is very much in the public eye: the parents of the three boys who were kidnapped and murdered, who lifted up the nation through their stoic courage and generosity of spirit; the air force pilots who are currently in the forefront and the intelligence agents who assist them in selecting targets; and the men and women who defied the skeptics to design the Iron Dome system that has been remarkably effective in protecting Israelis from rockets and missiles Palestinian terror groups are raining down

I took a look back at the current crisis of illegal Central American minors in the Weekly Standard article “Disorder at the border,” published in this past Friday in the new issue of the magazine. In retrospect, I think that the events of the preceding days fixed these issues in the public mind and culminated in President Obama’s notable address following his meeting in Dallas with Governor Perry. Obama had resisted the meeting with Perry, as he resisted visiting the border along the Rio Grande. In Dallas and Austin for big-buck fundraisers with his conspicuously wealthy friends, Obama was ultimately shamed

Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.
