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.

Because you were such a wimp - - we were saddled with a commie president for another four years.

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.

What’s Racist, What’s Not

Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 10/3/2014 4:33:21 PM     Post Reply
Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1. Talking about Ebola (Salon) - 2. Describing the Hong Kong

Turkey approves military operations
against ´IS´ in Syria and Iraq
Deutsche Welle [Germany], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 10/2/2014 2:03:21 PM     Post Reply
Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

On MSNBC´s Hardball tonight, host Chris Matthews argued with Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel about President Obama saying it was "unlikely" that an Ebola case would strike the U.S. "Obama said it was unlikely. It has happened. It´s here," Matthews said. Dr. Emanuel said there is some "fear mongering" going on here, but Matthews said he was just quoting the president and stating facts. Here´s a bit of the argument that lasted nearly ten minutes: Chris Matthews : I´m just trying to follow the logic here.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

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.

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

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

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

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

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
