Not Pawlenty! Glenn warns Romney will lose with a “Minnesota conservative” for a running mate

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Pat was getting heated over Obama’s refusal to accept responsibility for anything while at the same time claiming that Romney didn’t want to accept responsibility for his career at Bain. The lies were driving him crazy to the point he was literally off in the corner screaming. In order to calm him down, Glenn asked to change topics. Stu quickly chimed in with a new story: Tim Pawlenty appears to be the frontrunner for the GOP race.

And then Glenn started screaming. And screaming. And then he walked away from the table and screamed some more (story continues after photo).

“What is it? You don’t want to moderates on the ticket, two former liberals on the GOP ticket?” Pat said.

“Don’t start with me with you moderates. So, what you want is a ticket, what you want is a ticket with both a Massachusetts conservative and a Minnesota conservative?” Glenn asked.

“Romney, Romney, you know, maybe you have polling. Maybe you have divine inspiration. I don’t know. But let me tell you the inspiration from Glenn: Lose. You will lose,” Glenn said.

Stu suggested that he was a safe choice as he wouldn’t have any major gaffes and can be really great with the press, but Glenn pointed out that Paul Ryan would accomplish the same goals while also appealing to the Tea Party.

“But they’re reacting, I think, inaccurately to the Sarah Palin thing and they’re saying, well, Palin became the whole story. This needs to be about Obama. If you make it about your VP pick, then you’re not going to be able to focus on Obama. And you know that happens. I’m not saying I agree with it,” Stu said.

Glenn said that Pawlenty, who flip flopped on global warming, claimed that he had to say certain things in order to get elected in Minnesota. However, Glenn wants Romney to pick someone who has stood for their principles and “has a spine.”

“ I’ll take Bill the chiropractor,” Glenn joked.

    On the money Glenn; we need a real conservative with backbone and integrity to be the VP on the ticket, one who can gather even more people to the cause. No matter who is picked, the progressives and leftists will rake them over the coals in any way they can, no matter what they have to forge or fabricate to do so.

    Another question; can anyone tell me the meaning of the funky skull on the desk? the one with the royal crown painted upon its side?

    It looks familiar yet I cannot place it, unless it came from a shakesperian stage prop.

    Minnesota seems, to me, to be emerging as the mid-north California.  Certainly there are conservatives there but still it appears to be a growing hotbed of liberalism and permissiveness.

    The fact of the matter Is Romney doesn’t have worry about independents or minorities he has to worry about small government CONSERVATIVES!!!!

    I’m gonna suck it up and vote for the socialist instead of the communist, but many of my friends and relatives AREN’T VOTING because they so strongly disagree with Romney.

    Glenn’s right, Romney Needs to get bold with the VP pick.  I say pick Newt Gingrich a southern conservative , the most conservative of the primary candidates, the most capable of going on the offensive against Obama.  Just imagine what Newt would do to the liberal media every interview he gave, as Romney’s “attack Dog”.  He would rip the liberal lies, misconceptions, and false premises to pieces.

    Romney ultimately needs to go on the OFFENSIVE if he want’s any chance of beating Obama.  Personally I don’t think Romney has the speaking ability or demeanor to effectively go on the offense which means, Romney’s ONLY chance of winning is picking a VP who can go on the offensive for him.

    Any VP candidates other than Gingrich or Rubio ensure Obama’s Re-Election.  I don’t think Rubio has the credentials to rally the conservative base, which far outweights pandering to independents and moderates.  Romney has to Give the Conservative base SOMETHING to EARN their support, or he will lose by a landslide.

    Pawlenty was the first to drop out of the Primary.  He wouldn’t make a good choice, if you want to win.

    I am sure there are many other better choices.

    I could scream just like Glen and Pat. Doesn’t anyone see that he needs a black VP to win. All the ones supportng Obama know he isno good but he is black s they have to like him. I guarantee in a New York minute they would vote for a lack VP.

    Newt would definatey help becasue of his outspokeness but I think a black VP would be better. He definately doesn’t need Rubio who is great but not bad a– enough. Condi would secure the black and woman’s vote!!!!! No white man could do any of this. I know it sounds racist but hey it is what it is…..

  • Anonymous

    I would like to see Romney have Marco Rubio as his VP choice.  Rubio is young, extremely intelligent, articulate, is a wonderful family man, and is a true Patriot. The list could go on.  I would definitely put my trust in him.  He speaks the truth.  We haven’t had that in the Obama administration.  My feeling is that Obama and Biden would be terrified to have Rubio as the VP choice because they know he would make them appear as they are and have been the last 3 1/2 years——STUPID!!!!!

    I don’t think anyone from my neighborhood, and i know no one from my family would have bothered to go to the polls to vote for RINO McCain, if it hadn’t been for his choice of at least putting a Conservative on the ticket to run with him.

    If Newt was a good Fit for the country he would have won the nomination. And as for this other guy…Pawlenty who?

    Id take anyone but another Palin or Obama.

    And so you guys don’t forget… Romney isn’t running for Dictator. So stop pulling a child tantrum because you don’t agree with “EVERYTHING” he believes and therefore are staying home. Not voting is a vote for OBAMA. If OBAMA wins because “Fake conservatives” who are really “anarchist libertarians” cause an “up-roar” you will get OBAMA unleashed!

    If you want Freedom, be constructive. Get the the biggest threat to freedom and liberty out of office and THEN hold Romney accountable for his promises.

    Ryan, Rubio, Ran Paul, and others you “rather” have, trust him even if you are too stuborn to. And guess what they will be in Congress right where we need them to fix this country with the help of a Romney administration or (for all you crazies) hold Romney to his promises to them.

    Picking Pawlenty would be a huge mistake. As in, Obama would get reelected kind of mistake. 

    I believe that Romney, in many ways as the President, is ok as a moderate in order to be a true uniter. Keep in mind that I don’t believe that this means compromising values in order to gain votes. But I think Romney would be ok and would even gain traction with Independents if he is more centrist, and that is where the difference will be for this election (man, I can’t believe that many Democrats would actually want to vote for a Socialist/ Communist President simply because he has a ‘D’ next to his name. 

    But, if Romney stays true to his central rank, the VP has GOT to be somebody with Conservative oomph. Newt Gingrich is too much Big Government. Marco Rubio might be wise. But Chris Christie for all of his union busting glory, believes in the Global Warming Fiasco. Trump, while a good concerned citizen, would be a joke. I wonder about a Rick Perry VP, but I don’t think that it would work. Santorum might not be a bad VP choice. My Governor Bob McDonnell might be good in reality; but he is not a name on the national level that I think would garner attention. 

    It’s a tough choice. But I have no doubt that Pawlenty would lose the election for America.

    If Mitt Romney loses it will be because Evangelists could not get themselves to vote for a Mormon. 30 million Christians did not vote in 2008, we needed just 10 million of these votes. I am older, so I will see very little effect of the communism that is about to over-run our country. Children will grow up without hope of ever achieving their dream, but they will have the burden of our debt.Those who are religious will have to pray in their homes for fear, that if anyone finds out, that they will be killed or maimed. If I am still alive, and an evangelist complains, I will throw my last good punch. However, I will be looking forward to seeing those same evangelist in the kingdom of heaven with their almost narcissistic attitudes, trying to quote scripture to Jesus Christ in an attempt to prove he is wrong  Oh, the nashing of teeth, as they look down upon earth and see how it was over-run with a New World order all because of bigotry towards Mormons. They let it all happen because they could’t come to grips with voting for a Mormon who they thought was going to hell. Well, I lived free and I tried to preserve our freedoms by voting for Romney, I will fight for the memory of our Founding Fathers who, I believe were inspired of GOD. I will fight to preserve our Constitutional Republic and I will fight to free our country from tyranny, but if any evangelist arrogantly tells me that they did not vote for Romney and thereby willingly destroyed our Constitutional Republic and our Bill of Rights, that were created by GODS hand, I will willingly fight you. Folks, take this seriously, and think before you react. We wll never get another chance. I doubt if we will ever be able to vote again.

    Newt is a big govt conservative, Newt has always said his biggest role model is Teddy Roosevelt who basically STARTED the progressive movement. Newt also defends FDR consistently, which is pretty darn anti-conservative if not outright liberal.

    And Newt always promotes crazy big government projects like the Moon colony.

     If you believe Romney will save us from the globalist elite you have another thing coming.

    The ONLY solution is a divorce with DC. The political “marriage” we call the Union is no longer beneficial to us. Our “husband” in DC has been cheating on us, lying to us, and abusing us.

    The founders declared independence over taxes that were a fraction of a percent of colonial GDP. Today the government is almost 50% of GDP spending. The colonists had it good, if anything.

    Time for our states to declare independence!

    I don’t understand your rant against Christians. If that many of us didn’t vote back in 2008…..I voted….. What makes you think that if they don’t vote now it will be because of a Mormon? 
    Did all Mormons vote in 2008?
    Most of us happen to agree with Romney’s values even though we disagree with the faith.
     I personally disagreed with him when it came to the healthcare thing here in Ma.
    As far as your arguement concerning prayer and other freedoms many take for granted, it’s inevitable. God’s word says WE WILL be persecuted for our faith and there will be tribulation.
    I think that should Obama be re-elected it will be the precursor to what we have been warned about by our Heavenly Father of what’s to come.

    So, though we may vote for the lesser of two evils, in the end my hope is not in man but in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior!!!!

    Condi would not ensure the black vote. They don’t consider her a “black”. They called her an Uncle Tom. If women vote for her it would be just to vote for a woman. She is very intelligent, but not a very typical woman that other women would identify with. She is also soft on the abortion issue. While I think she would be an excellent VP, I don’t think she would pull in many blacks, women  or conservatives.

    There seems to be bad blood between Santorum and Romney. I don’t see that happening. Pawlenty is a nice guy, but bland like Romney. Someone had mentioned Huckabee.While that would make Glenn scream, I don’t think he would be a bad choice.He could bring in the evangelicals that are iffy because of Romney’s Mormanism. Newt is too left of center. Christie is too contraversial, and not conservative enough. They have floated other women’s names, but I don’t think any of them but Condi Rice is a real good addition to the ticket. I like Jindal, but he has a bad rep now because of that one speech, even though he is a great gov. I want Paul Ryan as Treasury Sec. Living in Ohio, I know some folks here who don’t even know Portman. Rubio is young, enthusiastic, bright and conservative. While lacking in maturity and experience, I think he makes up fo it in other areas.

    Newt has a right to be cocky, he’s proven to be the absolute smartest and quick witted, with the most experience, best at debates while putting liberal media in their place, on the spot, in a second flat, etc.  Concerning the attacks you see on this blog, he has confronted and answered to them, satisfying most people.  Watching Newt in a debate is as pleasurable as watching a great musical artist perform

  • w. Parker

    Can anyone advise me when the first debate between Romney and oscumbag will take place?  Thanks

  • Lioness

    Newt stated that the people at the time liked Roosevelt (in a historical context), Newt stated that he did not agree with most of his policies. How did that become so twisted. O, I know, the cut and paste U tube crap that pretty much killed his campaign. When will people learn that you can put just about anything on the internet. All the big government projects you say he promoted was supposed to be handled by the private sector not the government, all he wanted to do was give incentive for positive results. I supported Newt after researching him a lot. Yea, there was some imperfections and bad ideas, but unlike Romney he didn’t actually implement it into law, nor did he support them after researching the implications of those actions. No one cared to know the truth, it’s easier to listen to the hype. And why are you so concerned about it now? The primary is over with already, and we know he’s not going to be a VP option.

    I love the idea of Rubio in the White House in general.

    But Republicans need to work smarter not harder.

    Can we GUARANTEE that Rubio’s replacement in the Senate will be a Republican? Isn’t Florida a “battleground state”? Wouldn’t it make sense to keep all our Republican Senators so that getting rid of Obamacare is a live option not DOA b/c we lost the Senate to the Dems again?

    I just want to be absolutely certain that we actually do this right. We need to get rid of Obama but we also need to have the power to get rid of Obamacare ASAP.

    Please keep all our Republican Senators — we need them desperately.

    You, know, I’d love Ted Poe as VP ;-) I love him as my representative in Texas but he’s got a spine and he knows right from wrong.

    plus you’ve got the North(Romney) South(Poe) connection bagged so that could give a balanced look to the ticket.

     Marco Rubio – to assure a Florida win. I’ve never heard him miss a beat on any subject thrown at him either. (Someone below wrote Rubio can’t rally the conservative base. Nonsense.)

  • Anonymous

    Well if your intent is to appeal to black bigots who only judge a man or woman by the color of their skin instead of the content of their character — then yeah I SUPPOSE that putting a black man on the ticket helps.

    But if they’re (the voter base that you’re presuming to attract) THAT shallow to begin with, why wouldn’t they vote for a black man at the top of the ticket? You think they can’t figure out that President is actually more powerful than Vice President?

    Bigotry in either direction — is bigotry.

    Republicans really need to start walking the walk that they’ve supposedly been talking since the end of the Civil War. We can’t pick a VP candidate based on the color of their skin and then wink and nod that that’s not precisely we’re doing.

    Marco Rubio is very articulate. However, I feel he’s too young as compared to Alan West. Alan West is the kind of man who would terrify the liberals because he’s stared evil in the face and lived to tell the tale. He’s not some draft dodger (like Clinton). He’s not some pot smoking communist rebel (like Obama). He’s fought for this country.

    IF something should happen to Mitt Romney, I’d feel VERY confident that our nation would be in excellent hands in the upcoming troubling times.

    I think the world of Marco Rubio. But I don’t know if he’s QUITE ready to stand toe to toe to Iran or China and tell them where they can shove it.

    I KNOW Allen West would quite easily tell those clowns where they can shove it.

    Being black in the American South clearly helped build Allen West’s character. He has character and integrity in spades.

    My bet is that Romney will pick what he views as a safe choice.  I love Col. Allen West but don’t think anyone in Washington has the courage to deal with him.  Paul Ryan would be the absolute best choice.  I fear Romney will choose Portman who I think leaves a lot to be desired. I don’t believe Condi is near the top of his list, I think they just floated that rumor to get the public reaction.  I think she excels with excellence in any capacity. Marco Rubio is a fabulous young man, but needs more experience and he is not a “natural born” citizen.

    Well, I would call myself a devout Christian. I remember Peter sitting at a table in mixed company (Jews, Muslims) and then quickly getting up when he witnessed the leaders coming. He was concerned about being put to death. Saul/Paul called him to the floor on his cowardice. The point is that sometimes we have to get hard on ouselves for the stupid things we do, such as, telling mormons they are going to hell, or asking a women what she did wrong that she would have a child with spinabifida. We quote scripture to make false accusation sound like we are defending our Savior’s position and it is nonsense. Saul/Paul became a devout Christian. He realized it was critical to bring the faiths together and he became a respector of all faith. You see Saul understands that their will be Mormons, Catholics, Baptists, Muslims, Jews, and so on that will be in heaven. Jesus will not ask you if you are Christian when he judges you. The word Christian will not be found in the scriptures, it is a man made word. He may ask you if you believe in him which many will clam their faith in him in which he will reply, “Be gone for I never knew you.” I believe we were not sent to this earth to lie down and allow evil to over come us. We are here to defend the liberty of freedom and our Constitution Republic. The United States is a blessing from God. I believe, our Heavenly Father had a huge influence on our Constitution and on our Founding Fathers. Our founding Fathers said that they realized they were giving the people freedom, but they also said that in order for a Constitutional Republic to work we must remain a moral people. Remember, our government is of the people, by the people and for the people. This mean the people were handed governance. Thus, if the people lie and cheat and take advantage of each other then it will not work. So, what part do Christians have in restoring the blessings of this country? I believe it is Christians actions that will determine if Obama gets re-elected. The fact that our Father in Heaven warned us about things to come is because he knew of the fall and destruction of Christians. In other words, we think it is because of everyone else’s wickedness, but fail to look within. I could give you story after story of how I trusted in my Christian brother only to have him be blatently dishonest. I watch as they puff their chest up and spin a web of deceit. In the end they get away with it, so they do it again and again while all the while quoting scripture to right their wrong. Others are witnesses to the lies and deceit. Some, decide they are going to be spiritual versus believers in Christ. So, who is at fault? The person who fell away or the poor example we provided that made that person fall away? We as Christians need to stop the interfaith wars, we need to stop judging others, we need to stop quoting scriptures as the Pharisee’s once did, and begin to act like true followers of Christ. I think the best example is to read the Sermon on the Mount and then ask if this is the way we live. Think about the words I have used in the past few days or the scriptures I have quoted? Did I say what I said, or quote the scriptures I quoted because I was acting as a follower of Christ or did I do it to deceive another person and win a battle. As Christ said we will account for every word we speak, which means he is not happy with the hypocrit. So, my point is, lets get our act together, and fight for the blessing of our heavenly father, which is this country and our Constitutional Republic. We have a responsibility and it is not to sit back and wait.
    Oh, and I believe Mormons are Christians unlike many of my brethren.  So, I include Mormons in the 30 million Christians that did not vote. I will never insult a Mormon or a person of any faith by saying they are going to hell because they do not deceifer the scripture the way I do. You do not have to search the internet very long before you witness all the sites, where so called evangilists are threatening not to vote this year because they can not get themselves to vote for a Mormon.

  • Anonymous

    You both made my point! You both believe Mormons are not Christian and therefore they are evil. Think of the progressive and think about the way he argues? First they are Narcissists and then they are hypocrits. Think about how the pharisee’s quoted scripture to Christ, talk about narcissistic and hypocritical. Well folks, I have to tell you I see no difference in your attitudes. You are not defending Christ by agreeing with each other. Remember, Satan is the father of all lies, Christ represents all truth. You are simply defending the big lie.

     If Romney loses it will be because he is a Big Government Progressive with limited skills, speaking ability, and personality.  It will be CONSERVATIVES who will refuse to vote for him.  Not to mention he will be the weakest republican candidate for president in since the days of FDR.

    Claiming that it will be Christians fault is a little ridiculous to me.

    If there is anyone to be blamed it is the Establishment Progressive Republican party.  Your not going to beat a big government progressive(obama), by choosing another big government progressive(romney).  Given that choice, both are BGP’s, so why vote for the less BGP candidate. 

    The (progressive)GOP has made the same mistake for over a decade in an attempt to go moderate and pander to independents and minorities.  What they are really doing is alienating their base.

    Until the GOP picks a TRUE SMALL GOVERNMENT candidate we will continue to lose, deservedly.

    Since Mohammed started the Muslim religion around 600AD, I do not see how St. Peter could have been sitting at a table with them since he was long dead.

     Romney is part of The New World Order you ass clown.

    What I got from your whole diatribe is if people don’t vote for who you want, you are going to fight us and not in the political sense. That sounds very totalitarian.

    Romney will lose because he is a liberal progressive that is only slightly better than Obama but will ultimately do more long term damage to the GOP credibility. The choice is between two Democrats so don’t come in here with your ultimatum of violence to those who vote differently from you.

    I seriously doubt we will get to vote again also, with radicals on the left and radicals like you on the right, it doesn’t look good.

    I also forgot to mention that I am a evangelist that is arrogantly telling you that I am not voting for Romney.

    Pawlenty threw Norm Coleman under the bus, so to speak.  For sure he  stood by and allowed the election of Al Franken to be decided by counting the votes until the results are in your favor. We can do better than select Pawlenty.

    You are so right Glenn…please…not Milktoast Pawlenty…this would be a no win for sure, or Condi Rice who is Pro-Choice.   We need leadership…strength… and no Holds Barred in our VP and President if we are going to win this election and take back America….Allen West, Marco Rubio..Rand Paul are the 3 strongest men that would fit the bill and create excitement and ferocity!

    If you start looking at Romney’s record he has been an honest businessman, good family man, and righteous person…some of this talk about Christians not voting for him is all part of the left’s set up…People had better think of their families and their lives.

    Agreed, but God created Mohammed. Mohammed is his child and he will be accountable to Christ for his sins. However, I will not insult Christ by taking his seat as the judge of Mohammed, that is all. Everyone is born in different circumstances which will influece your beliefs and the way you act. The last thing I want to do is try and judge another, although I am tempted. As I judge others, so will I be judged. I guess, I have a very high regard for Christians. I believe we are much better than we are acting. If we can make changes in our lives and make sure we vote we can get this nation and the world to hear the voice of righteousness throughout this great land.

    Nothing, it is your vote! You will suffer the consequeces and so will the rest of us. You just made my point! However,when Obama turns this country to Communism, your freedoms are lost, you are in hiding because you are religious, just don’t dare come whinning to me. It is always the same with you progressives, you fight for your ideals and then blame everyone else when you get the communism you thought you wanted. Suddenly, you are upset that they have you by the hair and dragging you out in the street and lining you up next to your grave. That scenario hasn’t happened once in our lifetime. It happens over and over and over again with the progressives coming to the Americans to bail their arrogant — out of the fire all the while they are whinning and wimpering about how life isn’t fair.

    Now, I believe you are a progressive, so I will treat you like one. Provide specific evidence that he is part of the new world order because I know many on this site will be waiting with baited breath to see this. How many times do we see progressives make accusations that they can’t back up! How many claim to be something they are not? Is anyone getting the feeling that Craig is not a Christian or even a conservative? He just sounds way too much like a progressive. Okay, we are waiting for your evidence that Romney is part of a New World order and why Obama is not part of a New World order. This should be fantastic! I can’t wait.

    Romney has to Give the Conservative base SOMETHING to EARN their support, or he will lose by a landslide. http://AlluringWay.blogspot.com

    A WASP!? Are you serious? Perhaps you have a different definition. All I have to say is put the guy in a poncho, sombrero, and hand him a vihuela. He’s clearly not my definition of a white Protestant of Anglo-Saxon ancestry.

  • The Craig Machine

    What is fantastic is the length that you will go to convince people you are a conservative which happens to know who is one and who isn’t. You may be on the right side of the aisle but you are no Conservative. There is a difference between being conservative and being a Conservative.

    You’re the one that supports Romney who is a Progressive (the records don’t lie). You’re the one throwing out ultimatums threatening violence. So tell me, who sounds like a Progressive? Your attitude seems to be “Your either with us or against us”. You automatically assume since I don’t support your Progressive candidate I must support Obama. A little one dimensional thinking, don’t you think?

    The zeal you display in thinking you landed a big progressive is comical yet sad when I think you also claim to be “Conservative.” If you want to see a real Progressive, I would suggest you look in the mirror, then proceed to look at who has donated to Romney’s campaign and who his advisors are (Follow the money). You will find Goldman Sachs and others of ill repute all nestled in there, the same as Obama.

    Keep thinking Romney is the savior, ignorance is bliss…… so I’ve been told.

  • The Craig Machine

    So your threat about fighting whoever didn’t vote for Romney was just empty rhetoric? You just made my point.

    Please don’t coming whining to me when you finally see that Romney is a LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE that continues to sell out our sovereignty.

    I realize you are scared but don’t vote and make decisions based out of fear. That is how we have arrived at this juncture in history and we are not going to get out of it by doing the same thing that got us here, by voting for the lesser of to evils.

    Next time before you go into another self-absorbed rant, know who you are speaking to first. Otherwise you will make another Jackass out of yourself.

    Everyone understands you Craig, you are a progressive. You utilize Saul Alinski approaches to misguide and misdirect. We all get it. You have a narcissistic personality that is common among radical progressives. It took me two posts to draw you out so that all could see you are a progressive pretending to be something else.

  • Anonymous

    So, you have no proof that Romney is part of a New World Order! Here are your words to me Craid and I quote, “ Romney is part of The New World Order you ass clown.” Knowing you are nothing but a progressive with false accusations, I simply asked you to give us the proof and you couldn’t. You have simply relied on CNN, MSNBC, CBS and all your other radical friends to tell you what Romney is and what Romney isn’t. Not once did you study how successful Romney has been in business and his life. If you had, you would have come to the conclusion that Romney is a patriot and has a very strong belief in our Constitution and in our Founding Fathers. A little fact finding mission on your part would have lead you to this conclusion. So, how can you be so obtuse, so ignorant. Again, look up narcissist and then compare its definition to the words you presented to me as well as others on this site. Its amazing isn’t it? You might want to do something about that.

    I liked Newt unti he atacked the Tea Party and then attacked Paul Ryan’s by saying his proposal for debt reduction was right wing extremist. Wow, Paul Ryan is the only one who cared enough about this country to actually write a plan to get us out of our nightmarish debt situation and Newt calls it right wing extremist? At the time Newt thought Paul was going to run against him in the primaries. So, my only conclusion for Newt doing something so stupid was to try and cut the legs out from underneath Paul Ryan. However, in doing so, he cut the legs out from underneath honest people who were trying to get this country back on track. At that point, I have never trusted Newt again. However, I really did like seeing him in debates and putting Obama and the press in their place. He is a very intelligent man, but trust and integrity are at the top of my list and unfortunately this is a very hard commodity to find.

    My issue with Newt is when I heard him put down the Tea Party to the press and then he turned on Paul Ryan by saying his debt proposal was nothing more than a right wing extremist. Say what? He did this at a critical time when Paul was trying so hard to do something about the countries run away spending. Paul was showing that there was going to be some sacrifice. In other words, he put together an honest proposal and Newt trashed it. My lower jaw dropped at both comments. Why did he do this? I also agree with you on the Youtube videos. We really do have to be smart about this.

  • The Craig Machine

    I have told you where to get the proof, go look at Romney’s record as Governor of Massachusetts. If you can’t see that Romney is a Progressive from that then there is something wrong with you. Maybe because you are not a Conservative?

    It’s hard to fathom that we are still having to have this debate about Romney. I also notice that you did not provide any evidence to support your warped notions.

    How is Romney patriotic and have a strong belief in our country? Because he said so in his talking points? Again, his records tell another story.

    What does business have to do with running the Country? Another false talking point, it has nothing to do with running a government. Lets look at some of the great businessmen in recent political history. New York Mayor Bloomberg and New Jersey Senator/Governor John Corzine come to mind, how are they working out? According to your assumptions, they are awesome because they were successful businessmen.

    You obviously have never done one ounce of research on Romney or you’re a paid political hack from Romney’s Campaign and has no scruples.

    To anyone else that is reading this:

    Wvelie and others are trying to Co-opt the Conservative movement by casting dispersions on any Conservative that dares to defy the Progressive Romney. Romney and his die hard fanatics who try so desperately to paint themselves as “severely” conservative are running around saying true Conservatives are the Progressives while they are the “real” Conservatives.

    You may hold your nose and vote for Romney in hopes he might not be as bad, but if you start lying about his record and defending his liberalism like Wvelie does, ask yourselves this, “Are you any better than the Democrats who blindly follow Obama?” The answer is no.

  • The Craig Machine

    Still trying to project yourself onto others I see. I also see that you still fancy yourself this big Progressive Hunter. No doubt in a attempt to mislead others from what you really are.

    In the case of full disclosure, you wouldn’t be actively working for the Romney Campaign would you? Or are you just a useful idiot to the Republican Establishment?

  • The Craig Machine

     When did Newt attack the Tea Party? I don’t recall that ever happening. I do recall Glenn Beck saying if the Tea Party votes for Newt over Obama it would be because of racism. By the way, has Romney ever even attended a Tea Party Rally? I know Newt was putting up his own money to help the Tea Part in it’s infancy.

    Instead of having a knee-jerk liberal reaction to what Newt said about Paul Ryan’s proposal, why don’t you look to understand the point that Newt was trying to make. You assume that Paul Ryan’s proposal was perfect and therefore beyond reproach?

    Strange that you would never trust Newt again over what you alleged he did but yet trust Mitt Romney who has flip flopped on every major issue and has implemented parts of UN Agenda 21 as Governor of Mass. If that is yours and others definition of trust and integrity then I pray for the future of this country.

    EIPzee,
    Even when presented with truths about Romney’s record, or even urging the same scrutiny that Obama should have had; not repeating the same mistakes in the last election cycle, is met with resistance, why? We
    were spoon-fed this candidate by both parties but for different
    reasons. The Democrats pushed Romney because his record was similar to
    Obama’s and if he did somehow win, well no big loss. The Republican
    Establishment pushed him because he represents the status quo and would
    not rock the boat with all their backroom deals. Romney appears
    acceptable to Conservatives only when you contrast him with
    Obama.        In reality, both are on the same side of the aisle. This
    is called the Overton Window Theory and is what they have been doing for
    many elections already.The focus of his Mormonism is a way to
    redirect from his record. Romney’s palpability as candidate elect by
    Establishment should be warning enough for every citizen not to fall
    into the same patterns as last election. Due diligence as citizens is
    our one tool to not keep repeating mistakes of the past.Yet at
    every turn we are redirected, set upon by operatives in many guises to
    do just that, again-why? Deluded individuals I’m sure; scare tactics to
    “herd” the conservatives towards Romney, yes. Then you have ones who use
    so-called religious rhetoric to advance their goals, though if you live
    a righteous life, invoking God’s name is not necessary, and technically
    should have no bearing on this election. It is also another tool to
    seek to divide us as a UNITED States of America, creating chaos, another
    Alinsky model.Hilary’s thesis at Wellesley College in 1969 says it well: “There Is Only One Fight: An Analysis
    of the Alinsky Model”-his embrace of political nihilism. “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” It doesn’t matter whether blacks, women,a
    cause De jour, the occasion is always to advance the real cause which
    is the accumulation of POWER to make the revolution. THAT was the all
    consuming focus of Alinsky and his radicals.

    Is this how a professional media people acts while they are on the air?  Running around and screaming because they saw a news story?

    I don’t ever remember Brian Willaims, Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite, Bill O’Reilly, etc running around their studios and screaming like a totally idiot after reading a news story.

    Oops!  My bad, Brian Willaims, Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite, Bill O’Reilly are all professional and intelligent meida people and act accordingly.

    Beck isn’t a professional at anything.  He is crackpot conspiracy theory fruitcake who you would not dare invite to your house for any occasions. Jeez.

    I’m tired of hearing about “controversial.” Liberals are controversial to conservatives, and the only reason that’s not pointed out by the media is that the media are liberals themselves and they think socialism is normal. If the Left doesn’t like Allen West, then he’s the one we need. I will not vote Republican if the ticket is yet another presentation of wishy-washy RINOs who’ve waited their turn. Pawlenty turns me off big time, and apparently many others as well – which is why he wasn’t chosen by the primary voters to lead the ticket.

  • Anonymous

     Rubbish. Your argument makes about as much sense as saying people vote against Obama because he’s half black. I will vote for a Mormon if he espouses sound conservative principles. If I don’t vote for Romney, it’s not because he chooses to worship the same God I do in a different way – it’s because I remember his record, his campaigns in Massachusetts for office there and because I don’t want more government intervention in my life. It’s awfully difficult for me to vote for someone who helped write into law a healthcare program that already is a money pit in Massachusetts only to vow to not accept the same thing on a national scale. Romney by himself, to me, does not pass the smell test. If he is willing to put his money where his mouth is and pick Allen West (or someone like him) I’ll give him a chance. If he picks another milquetoast such as Pawlenty, I’m sitting out this election because it won’t be a choice – just an echo.

    Good for you, but you are talking about you, and what you would do. I gave specific citations to sites where their are evangelists who will not vote for Obama because he is Mormon. I even gave the evangelists web site and phone number when someone on this site requested it. The Evangelists name is Bill Keller who states that, “a vote for a Mormon is a Vote for Satan.” So, before you say rubbish face the music, and do your research.

    I agree with you.  I tell these people when they mention his “religion”, it’s not relevant.  It’s like this, come Nov 6.  You can vote for whomever you like, but any vote NOT for the challenger that has a chance at winning, is the same as voting for Pres Obama.  This country is still a two-party race.  You can vote for a 3rd for 4th party candidate, you can even right in a name.  But it will take about 69 million of those for that individual to win.  Regardless of how electoal votes turn out, elections are not so far appart in the populace voting.  Less than 9.5 million votes determined the Presidency of the US.

    IF – as you say, Bill Keller’s quote about voting for Romney – “… is a vote for Satan”, then what is Voting for the Obama then?  Regardless of what you think about the candidates, you really need to pick the lesser of the two “evils” (if that is how you perceive it) – that have a chance to win.  It’s the only way to insure you don’t end up with the worst case scenario. 

  • Greg Williams

    So, you going to vote for Obama?  Or you going to vote for someone that hasn’t got a chance at winning.  If you think Romney is so bad, then you got to believe that Obama is even worse.  If not, then you’re just plain crazy.  Or a progressive claiming to be something else. 

  • The Craig Machine

    Is that what you base your decision on for President is by who you think will win instead of who represents your political views?

    Your words seem to suggest you are a advocate for the “the lesser of two evils is good” theory. I do not believe that so therefore will neither vote for Obama or Romney.

    I will cast my vote for the candidate that I believe has the best plans for turning this country around. As of right now that would be Gary Johnson. It’s not my fault other people will vote out of fear instead of reason and principle. That is how we arrived to this point in the first place and we sure as hell are not getting out of it by repeating the same mistakes.

    Are you going to vote for our continual decline or somebody that will turn this sinking ship around? Because neither Obama or Romney are going to save us, they are part of the problem.
