Romney Bravely Slams the Won


Via Drudge

Tough guy and libertarian-conservative icon Mitt Romney strikes a daring, insightful blow against the toughest opponent in US campaign history: ‘Barack Obama has failed America’

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Mitt Romney is opening his first formal day as a 2012 Republican presidential candidate by pitching himself as the one to heal the economy and issuing a direct challenge to the man he wants to replace: “Barack Obama has failed America,” he says.

In excerpts released ahead of his formal kick-off speech Thursday, Romney hones in on the economic woes that are frustrating voters: a lack of jobs, persistent foreclosures and runaway spending in Washington.


It is NOT “your turn” Mitt, and Obama is NOT your opponent.  A warm ham sandwich can beat this fool.  You are running against a Republican field that incudes genuine, tough libertarian-conservative candidates of the Tea variety.  You had better convince a lot of people that your record as a RINO and that your multiple epiphanies actually count in your favor.  Right now you look like yesterday’s ‘Plan B‘, not ‘Plan A‘ for tomorrow.

Bad weather is ahead: The Fed’s Quackery-Escalation II has failed, it is long past out of other peoples’ money and so the dollar is about to completely tank.  Got Economics?  Got Liberty?  Got Capitalism?

. . .

There is a lot you can do to re-build the Mitt brand: Gather about you solid libertarians and conservatives from credible associations: Think Heritage Foundation, think Cato Institute.  Much will depend on what we can expect of your Cabinet and Court nominees.  Much will depend upon specific economic proposals.  Much will depend upon your response to the massive State regulatory burden placed upon our nation by this anti-patriotic administration. What proposals will you offer to unwind, defund and sunset the federal bureaucracy?

Much will depend, too, upon your foreign and military policies as well.  What of Britain? Israel? America’s enemies?

Got Strength?

. . .

Dunno Mitt. You’re a good and honorable man and a true patriot. Are you the man to drive the restoration of the American Idea? Do you have what it takes to lead us from Evil, for Evil is what the present administration is and is doing?

    Your advice to Romney is dead-on. Excellent Ran.

    I will take Romney if he is the man who can win. Right now I don’t see him that that way, but he’s my man if he can show the seriousness of his strength to combat, as you say, the Evil.

      Thanks-you Maggie!
      The reasonable possibility of a Romney win places even greater importance on grass-roots activism for Congressional offices. Romney can be lead from Congress much as Clinton was in ’94 – IFFFF we get decent candidates elected.

    “Obama is NOT your opponent. “

    I disagree. Every single Republican needs to be running against Obama and ONLY Obama. If they all go after each other, it only benefits the bucktoothed incumbent.

    During the Primary?
    I had thought that the Primary process was where we vet ideas and the strengths of candidates.

    If so, Obama is not yet anyone’s opponent. He will indeed be – once we have our ticket – but until then Romney must prove to us how he is better than Cain and Bachmann and Pawlenty and the rest. Like I say, a warm ham sandwich can oppose Obama and win.

    I say every candidate has to present their ideas and compete.

    That vetting process will not help BOzo in the least. He has no strengths to run with with – none! Even the timing of O(s)ama’s death as a campaign surprise was denied him.

    Yeah, but the strength is to be found in how much the polar opposite of Brakabama each candidate is. I think that’s why Romney is going to have such a hard time shaking that Massachusetts health care dealio. Obviously they’re going to each be taking shots at one another, but they better not get carried away. You can’t do that when you’re running against an incumbent and wind up winning.
