Mitt Romney: Obama
worse than even I expected

Washington Times, by S.A. Miller

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/19/2014 5:31:01 PM

Beckley, WV - Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by President Obama’s policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign. “It’s been a good deal worse than even I expected,” Mr. Romney told reporters after headlining a rally here for Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. “I was not a big fan of the president’s policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,” he said. “But the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.” Mr. Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican

Comments:
At this point, Romney reminds me of the CHP ads on TV when i was in high school. The punch line was something about, "Not being dead right." We are on the Road to 0bama´s perdition and only stronger leadership after he´s gone can possibly save our nation. 0bama has caused a rift in too many daily aspects of governance that need to be addressed immediately by a bipartisan Congress, especial in the area of military defense and border security.

Well then it is probably just as well Mitt lost the election, because Obama is NOT worse than I expected. He is, however, no better than I expected either.

Thank you making kissy-kissy-nice-nice during the campaign, Mittens.

Go away, you wuss.

If you had bothered to read the 2 books he ´wrote´ it would have been crystal clear about what you were up against. That and being clueless about how to handle an opposition press, meant that once you were done beating up Republicans, you were lost. Nice job on your computer organization. THAT was where you were supposed to have some skills. I voted for you, but your campaign was weaker than your dad´s.

I agree with everyone that we all KNEW exactly what he would be like. However, I do not agree with # 3, 0 did not win the last election fairly. Voter fraud was rampant, the election was stolen. I am fearful of that again in 2014 and 2016. I do think there will be so much against him in 2014 it will be obvious if they steal the mid-terms. But I am not sure by the time 2016 arrives anyone will be able to bring this country back.

#3 - it´s doubtful our ballot box has been honest. With the DOJ suing states who try to enforce voter ID laws, it´s becoming more dubious by the day.

As for Mitt Romney - he is not alone. Who could have ever imagined that our CIC could be so common, so quickly.

Conservatives certainly knew that BO was a serious problem back in 2008. After his first term, you didn´t KNOW how lousy BO was? This was your problem Mitt, I supported you and thought you would make a good president, Mitt. But you have the reverse problem of BO. BO is a passionate campaigner but a lousy executive. Mitt, you lack the passion to win against a determined enemy. You tend to give moral equivalence to your opponent. BO and his socialist ideology is the enemy of our country´s founding principles. You didn´t see that Mitt and you didn´t become incensed at the threat BO posed. The second term problems were predictable and worse is yet to come.

Wake up!

I held my nose and voted for Romney, but I sure hope we have a flame thrower for a candidate the next time, and he/she is committed to burning the democrat opponent.

#24 I am still suspicious of that stat. Where did that come from? Is there any way to back it up? I just feel like it way too easy in this internet age to promulgate stats like that. It seems like a thinly veiled cover for the Obama election fraud scheme whereby they hacked into the database, switched a bunch of votes from Romney to Obola. Such a hack attack could very easily explain the "lower turnout" among conservatives.

I have seen comments about voters staying home but nothing to back it up. I don´t believe that. Think about Chick Fila day. Everyone turned out for that just by word of mouth. And so what if Mitt is a Mormon? It should have been known by Zippy´s second term that he was a muzzie. I´ll take a Mormon over a muzzie any day. Bottom line is voter fraud is slapping the snot out of conservatives and will continue to do so because the libs have been doing it for years and they get better and better each election cycle. Not sure we can ever win another one unless the libs LET us win one.

If you´re going to try and argue that 4 million evangelicals stayed home then you have to be prepared to say they have stayed home in such numbers since before 2004 because GWB got roughly the same number of evangelical votes Romney did.

Here´s the truth but feel free to be a lofo poster. From the National Journal two days after the election and many other sources. It´s offensive as a conservative to be blamed for Romney´s loss, even more so when you could spend 30 seconds to find out whether your meme holds water.

"79 percent of white evangelicals voted for Romney on Tuesday. That´s the same percentage that Bush received in 2004, and more than Sen. John McCain received in 2008. The evangelical vote was 27 percent of the overall electorate -- the highest it´s ever been for an election."

So what remedy does Mr. Romney (who I voted for - I did not stay home) suggest at this point? What do any of the GOP leaders suggest - other than marching to the polls like obedient drones and giving them the Senate? Then what?

What will Mitch do as majority leader to stop the treason? Can the nation stand 29 more months of it? What would even change in January 2017? Tell us what we are voting for.

The fact that there are still the remaining handful of Romney enthusiasts defending what most of us knew about Romney, and by extension, his loyalists is both predictable and sad. Gingrich, Bachman, Santorum, yes all of them loudly and articulately described in full detail and at every opportunity the threat the current president and his regime present to the social and economic institutions of this country. Romney and his loyalists, like the uber liberal republicans of the Romney and Rockefeller view religious people, small government, family values oriented voters as a contemptible threat. JUST. AS. OBAMA. DOES.
High taxes, heavy regulation, gay marriage, federal promotion of abortion, gun restriction. Liberal republicans like Romney and the romneybots find themselves more in step with democrats than conservatives, more at home with the cocktail parties and happy hours on K street, hence the threat they see is the threat to their existence.
We need to stop taking Romney, and by extension, his full throated fourth grade level supporters, seriously. Gravitas indeed.

From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams´ and Joan Rivers´ sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched primetime across all of cable in more than a decade — even besting USA and ESPN. The average 1.79 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Monday through Friday, gave FNC its first quarter atop the dial since the Iraq War broke out in 2003. Expanding that block by an hour,

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

Washington - The Obama administration is initiating a program to give refugee status to some young people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador in response to the influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S. The program would not provide a path for minors to

Washington - Obama administration lawyers have been debating whether the Treasury Department must inform the people or groups it lists as foreign terrorists when it relies on warrantless surveillance as the basis for the designation, according to officials familiar with the deliberations. Intelligence officials are said to oppose being more forthcoming about who has been subjected to surveillance, especially in cases involving noncitizens abroad — who do not have Fourth Amendment privacy rights — because such information would tip them off that the National Security Agency had intercepted their communications. But a provision

Britons spend more on drugs and prostitutes than on alcohol and tobacco, the first official study of money spent on "illegal" activities has found. The figures were disclosed in data today that showed a 2.2 per cent rise in the amount of money spent by families over the past year as the economy returned to health. The Office for National Statistics, which tracks changes in spending habits across the country, found miscreants spent an enormous £11 billion on illegal substances and sexual gratification. (Snip) The EU said such work was necessary to create a fair comparison of different national economies.

Trenton, NJ - The maker of the world´s top-selling erectile dysfunction drug on Tuesday will begin airing the first Viagra TV commercial that targets the less-obvious sufferers of the sexual condition: women.

Viagra has faced competition from cheaper generic versions in Europe since its patent expired there 15 months ago. Sales fell 8 percent last year to $1.9 billion. And in three years, Viagra will get generic competition in the U.S.,

Report: Obama Has Missed over Half
His Second-Term Daily Intel Briefings

Posted By: happywarrior- 9/30/2014 7:44:05 AM     Post Reply
A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside. It comes as the Secret Service is facing more questions over

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

President Barack Obama´s intelligence briefings have provided him with specific information since before he won re-election in 2012 about the growing threat of the terror group now known alternatively as ISIS and ISIL, an administration insider told MailOnline on Monday. ´Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president´s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,´(snip) ´Any time you´re hired by a boss to advise him about what to do in a high-stakes area, and he ignores you for

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
