Romney to be GOP nominee – Elections no longer required
I hate to take the time to write a post and then have some less than intelligent person(s) say they didn’t understand, or claim that they *missed my point*, so, let me be very clear in this, I detest Mitt Romney.
Detest — Verb: Dislike intensely.
Synonyms: abhor – loathe – abominate – execrate – despise – dislike
Does that pretty much spell it out for those less than intelligent persons that DO read here, and on occasion attempt to make insidious commentary that fully illustrates their inane mindset?
The only thing I detest more than Mitt Romney, at least on the GOP side of the spectrum, is the presumptuous attitudes of *some* within the GOP/RNC. This post was inspired by just such a person.
Following Governor Christie’s announcement on Tuesday top GOP official and bundler Georgette Mosbacher told reporters, “We do not consider Perry a factor… We know who will be our nominee.”
Race for 2012 reported:
Those words were spoken today by Georgette Mosbacher, RNC Finance Co-Chair and huge GOP fundraiser, after Chris Christie’s announcement. The “we” is all the big bundlers, fundraisers, and money folks who have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for the field to be set — and that quote represents the coalescing around Mitt Romney that is expected to happen rather quickly now. Mosbacher went on to say:
“I think tomorrow, we’ll be contacting one another and probably put something together with Romney… And I would say that the race is now Romney and Obama. Quite frankly, the enthusiasm wasn’t there at the outset. He’s less conservative than a lot of us would like. However, our first and foremost goal is to defeat Obama. And we do believe Romney, in terms of independents, will be a strong candidate. We will coalesce behind him now… the time has come to get behind him… Tomorrow I’ll be on the phone all day. Quite frankly, it’ll be easier, because now we know who it is who will be our nominee. So we will pull our Rolodexes out and get to work.” SOURCE
Mitt Romney is, at best, a RINO, a Republican In Name Only. I am more than convinced that he’s not even a RINO, I am thinking he’s running as a Republican much for the same reasons that Ron Paul runs as a Republican; he knows that if his true self we disclosed, he couldn’t get his name on a ballot anywhere.
Folks, if this YouTube of Romney’s own words isn’t enough to convince you, I don’t know what I can post or say that will.
From the post by Pajamas Media:
With all due respect to Mrs. Mosbacher, as the co-chair of the RNC finance committee, you have no business making such a public statement. At this point in 1991, Bill Clinton was only two days into his run for the presidency. At this point in 2007, Rudy Giuliani led in the polls and the money race. Mosbacher knows the latter, surely, because she backed Giuliani at the time. The 2012 race is quite fluid and will be until the South Carolina primary next year. For an RNC official of Mosbacher’s stature to allow herself to become a public partisan in the primary is unwise, to the point that she should consider stepping down if she is going to publicly campaign for any single candidate. Her statement destroys the RNC’s image of impartiality, and exposes the party to legitimate charges that it is trying to force its will on the primary. That won’t sit well with the grassroots and the Tea Party, at all. Chairman Priebus should have a word with her, and remind her of the party’s legitimate role in the primaries, and where that role ends.
That said, these comments provide an opportunity for Perry and Cain, who at this point* are the only viable alternatives to Romney. If Mitt Romney is now the establishment, David Brooks-approved candidate, he is the John McCain of 2012 — a moderate who superficially appeals to establishment patricians like Mosbacher because they think he can win, but who will probably lose. Mosbacher has provided an opening for them to both paint Romney as the east coast moderate, not-of-the-conservative-movement candidate. And there’s a debate coming up next week.
To ALL of my readers, contact your local, county and state GOP leaders. Contact the RNC, contact Reince Priebus and let there be NO doubt that this type of action by RNC Finance Co-Chair Georgette Mosbacher will not be tolerated.
We had John McCain forced on us in the elections of 2008, and in MY opinion, a statement like this by RNC Finance Co-Chair Georgette Mosbacher, a blatant attempt to *force feed* us Mitt Romney, will do nothing other than open the door to give Barack Hussein Obama 4 more years that he can use to destroy America.
