Mitt Romney was right about everything
in 2012. So why not Romney 2016?

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Will Mitt Romney please adopt me? The Romster has been blogging about a fantastic vacation he’s taken his grandchildren on across the southwest (go there before the barbarians cover it in cable cars) and it sounds much nicer than the holidays I took as a kid. “All totaled, we hiked over 50 miles,” he writes. [Snip] But is he right to throw away a third bid so easily? Critics may laugh at the thought of “Romney 2016: the Last Stand” and journalists may cringe at the potential boredom. Yet it’s not such a dumb idea. After all, the polls show

Because even when he´s right, he´s wrong.

He is NO conservative.

Because unless attitudes change the same people who stayed home last time will stay home again. I like Romney. I think he´s honest and a good business man and would make a good president but considering him now is like trying to impeach Obama now . . . the time isn´t right. It´s two years to the election. Attitudes could change.

That´s a good question. Some would say he doesn´t have the fire in the belly to be POTUS. Others would say he´s not conservative enough. Still others, after what has happened in the last 6+ years, would say that he might just make a fine, dignified, experienced, decent, effective, tough, America-loving family man with all the credentials to be POTUS.

That said, I still want Trey Gowdy to run. Now there is one kick-arse politician/prosecutor who is brilliant, fearless, experienced, seriously conservative man who could bring us back to some semblance of normalcy.

Two reasons why: Jonathan Gruber and Gina McCarthy.

Gruber is the deceitful architect of ObamaCare and this same mendacious MIT economist helped Romney create the failed RomneyCare.

McCarthy is the androgynous head of Obama´s EPA who wants to cripple our economy with her cultist beliefs about carbon. Gina was Romney´s EPA advisor when he was governor. Gina´s mad beliefs influenced Mittens to stage a protest outside a coal burning power plant over a bizarre belief that affordable electricity "is killing people".

These two leftists would surely have played major roles in a Romney WH.

No Romney wasn´t right about everything in 2012. For cripes sake they even thought they were winning. Lousy campaign and probably equally bad if he runs again.

The truth is he lost to the worst President ever seen in this country. I like Romney as a person, but not as a candidate.

The article glosses over the comparison to Nixon and Reagan that they tried and tried again. Romney was the nominee and he blew it against a beatable candidate because he could not or would not confront the racist smear along with the millionaires and billionaires demagoguery. He doesn´t know how to debunk these things because he is not a conservative. He just stands there looking guilty as charged! We need a conservative - who did not invent Romneycare the forerunner to Obamacare.

Yes, he was right about everything and yes, if elected, we and the rest of the world would be in a bunch better shape now. But, it didn´t happen, and to those for whom Mitt Romney wasn´t perfect enough, he still will not be perfect enough for you. He has no intention of running again and articles such as this one simply remind us of how badly we missed out.

I think we should stop crying over spilt milk, and get on with the business ahead of us.

Going back to any former nominee, or a former family name like Bush, is a recipe for disaster. Nothing says ´stuck in the past´ quite like nominating a retread.

NO Romney wasn´t right about everything. He laid the ground work for Obamacare, he let Obama off regarding Benghazi, he didn´t have the ABILITY to defeat the worst president in history. It is not because he is a Mormon, it not because conservatives stayed home. He lacked fire and passion.

More importantly, most people (especially Republicans) fail to realize that there has been a huge paradigm shift in the character of the American Citizens. Today, we have more disasters and potential for war in more places than we have had in the last 50 years. Yet, the only thing we do is moan and groan and allow the Elected officials to continue to destroy our lives and the future of our children and grandchildren. Romney couldn´t have changed things as president then and is not a viable candidate today. Welcome to Reality!

So why not Romney 2016? Because Romney will not stop illegal border crossing, we not help abolish Obamacare, would not stop the EPA from imposing draconian cap & trade climate change nonsense and would probably raise taxes to ´fight´ the national debt.

When a boxer or a team doesn´t give it all they have, you don´t bet on them again. Even Romney´s sons admitted that he really didn´t want the job.

I like Romney personally. I admire his personal integrity and family values. I admire what he accomplished in the business world, while being in the shadow of his more famous father. I am impressed by his success in turning around the Salt Lake City Olympics.

I voted for Mitt Romney in 2012. He wasn´t my choice in the primaries, but I voted for him. I didn´t sit home.

But, enough. We need a candidate in 2016 who is a bare knuckles brawler. You don´t bring a gentleman to a street fight. We need someone who actually wants the job - for the right reasons - and is willing to take the gloves off to get it.

I get so tired from saying this, but GOP moderates nominated Romney in the Primaries. I wasn´t happy, but he was the Republican candidate, so I voted for him at election time. He ran a lousy campaign and lost to the worst President ever.

Conservatives always vote, and people who say different are making excuses because they selected a soft candidate who lost to a crook. That is it, quit blaming other people. You have no facts to support your theory that we stayed home.

I don´t know who will be the GOP candidate next time around, but please no more Doles, Romney´s and the like. Give me someone who will promise to send all illegals back home, and who will reverse all of those illegal Executive Orders that the First Criminal has issued. Get the government out of our lives.

He had no ´fire in the belly´ and didn´t care what the outcome might be. Another Juan McCain who felt he needn´t put much effort into the campaign. Though at the time Romney had much more to offer America than the current pResident, if he had no fire to win an election, would he have found the fire to govern our Nation? Many, including some here, would have given him a chance to try.

In the olden days there was a lot of "reaching across the aisle" and wasn´t that how government in America was designed to work? Two takes on an issue are, in the end, massaged into a way forward that more often than not works.

However, in the Democrat race to the left and away from an American-centered world view in recent decades, the reaching of late has been far too one sided.

So I think the "reaching across the aisle" charge is unfair to a point, and maybe more leniency should be shown for historical efforts. However, the Dems are now so far away from their historical position that reaching is now useless and must be viewed critically.

Romney took the gloves off in one Presidential debate and showed his smarts, understanding of facts and steel. Obviously, he let Obama off the hook next time in effect pulling a GHWB by ending the war too soon. And for similar reasons. No doubt there was lots of discussion both ways about strategy for the latter debate and there was a great chance that the media would spin outing Obama as racist but in retrospect he should have gone there anyway.

As a patriot and principled man, I think Romney would make the opposite choice now, considering the present threat to the country. From within.

Sweden to become first European
country to recognize ´Palestine´
Reuters, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/4/2014 12:51:12 PM     Post Reply
STOCKHOLM - Sweden´s new center-left government will recognize the state of Palestine in a move that will make it the first major European country to take the step, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said on Friday. The UN General Assembly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine in 2012 but the European Union and most EU countries, have yet to give official recognition. "The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved with a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law," Lofven said during his inaugural address in parliament.

Norway’s ruling Conservative Party has voted to withdraw their country’s bid from hosting the 2022 Olympics and providing financial guarantees, evaluating the games to be too costly. Prime Minister Erna Solberg commented, “We have received sound advice and there is no reason not to follow it. A project this magnitude, and at this expense requires broad popular support, of which there is not enough,” cited Norway’s daily English language newspaper, The Local. “We have other things we need to spend this money on.

Jeremy Clarkson has told how he and his Top Gear team were forced to flee Argentina under police escort as furious thugs tried to ´kill´ them. Rock-throwing protesters vowed to ´barbecue´ the controversial motoring show host after a row over the star´s number plate boiled over. Trouble erupted after a photo of Clarkson, 54, driving a Porsche with the number plate H982 FKL, circulated online, enraging Falklands War veterans who claimed it referred to the 1982 conflict. The presenter yesterday said the violent protest was ´state-organised´ accusing the Argentinians of taking advantage of their visit for ´political capital´.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

Health experts assembled by the White House conceded on Friday that a second case of Ebola could be identified in the U.S. But they defiantly insisted that the epidemic plaguing western Africa will not rise to the level of a major American outbreak.

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

It has been precisely a month since corpulent young dictator Kim Jong Un disappeared from public view, prompting frenzied speculation about his health and the state of political play in North Korea. Kim was last seen at a Sept. 3 concert, ensconced in a red easy chair next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju. Late last month, the youthful marshal was a no-show at a meeting of North Korea’s rubber-stamp legislature. The cloistered nation’s state-run TV aired images of his seat at parliament—empty. But North Korea experts say that the likeliest reason is also the simplest: That the Supreme Leader

Three US citizens are fighting in Syria, the British Daily Mail reports Friday. But unlike most foreign nationals, they are fighting against - not for - jihadists. One of the Americans has been identified as Jordan Matson (28) from Racine, Wisconsin, a spokesman for the private Pashmerga army, the Kurdish People´s Protection Units (YPG), said Thursday. Matson is a former US Army soldier now "fighting in the Jazaa area," the spokesman added - an area riddled by heavy fighting between Islamic State (ISIS) and Kurdish forces in northeast Syria.

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
