It ain't happening: why Mitt Romney is not a viable candidate

It ain’t happening: why Mitt Romney is not a viable candidate

Let’s be honest, Mitt Romney is not a viable candidate, no matter what Karl Rove and the media try to shove down our throats or convince us of. Romney is an actor, he’s Obama with a past. He is trying to portray himself as presidential. Let me tell you what every person who has been in the military, organized sports, or any environment where the focal point of direction is ultimately predicated upon the ability of one person. Leaders may be trained, but they’re only made if they are born with the innate capacity, that sets them apart and enables them to think, function and perform in dramatically impressive and capable ways – in the moments others freeze or unravel.

Romney’s track record as governor has been spun more than candy cotton. And as the McCain 2008 opposition research showed Romney’s only core belief is himself. He has flipped and flopped and flipped again, according to the situation. That is not a leader.

Sure, there is no question, that as you learn more about something you may change your position on it, or that as you mature certain positions may soften, harden, or outright change. But that’s not what we are talking about with Romney. In the short period of time since the 2008 presidential elections, he has changed practically every position he held then. The media and the Republican Party apparatchik can try as they may, but there’s no getting away from that. Rick Perry said it best, ostensibly saying that after 50 plus years a person’s positions are ingrained. A person cannot stop being themselves anymore than they can shrink their shoe size.

Romney has changed on illegal immigration, social security, social security privatization, abortion, healthcare, minimum wage, Reagan-Bush, education, he’s even changed his position pursuant to his own conservatism. And that’s only a partial list. Rove and the media cheer him for having reinvented himself. What the heck kind of leadership is that? The answer is, it’s not leadership.

Romeny will say, do, or be anything it takes to get the nomination. But, here again we see Rove, and the Republican apparatchik in full throttle overdrive trying to convince us he is credible – based on the misguided and delusional belief he can beat Obama. Forget for a moment that Obama will crush him in the general election (I’ll explain that why later).

Romney isn’t being promoted because he honest, intelligent, because he has a resume of notable accomplishment or because he is the conservative’s conservative. He is a R.I.N.O. just like Arlen Specter, Mike Castle, Lincoln Chafee, Olympia Snowe, and Susan Collins. How did they and/or have they met the expectations and interests of conservatives?

That they are pushing Romney is indicative of their contempt for us. They continue to site polls that show Romney beating Obama – do not believe it. Romney is this years John McCain. Obama will slice, dice and make him fumble and stutter more than he did during the “It’s your money” presidential debate in Michigan. It’s not because Obama is so gifted, rather it is because Romney is so bad. He has years of flips-flops for the opposition to use against him.

But there is one thing a Romney nomination and presidential loss would accomplish. It would allow Rove to blame the Tea Party voters for the lost, and use that in an attempt to smear and malign Tea Party groups into oblivion. One more thing pursuant to the polls.

Polls can be weighted. Per the poll showing Romney beating Obama in three key states – did they poll most likely to vote, did they poll first time voters or seasoned voters. Was it heavily weighted Republican, Democrat, or independent? What were the other demographics of the poll, i.e. how old were those polled, what were their income brackets, what was their education level, what kind of employment, was it weighted more toward retired or college age? Was it weighted more female or male and what were those demographics?

Romney’s winning is pure agitprop. It ain’t gonna happen – no way, no how.

    Mychal, I believe you’re correct on Romney. He’s McCain/Dole all over again, only younger and more well spoken. But he’s not a conservative. Of that there’s no doubt. Neither are the GOP elite, and that’s why they back Mitt. In my mind, the ideal ticket is some combination of Cain and Gingrich. I think Mr. Cain is probably best at the top of the ticket and I believe he would heavily consult and seek advice from Mr. Gingrich, who has all of the political savvy you could want in a candidate. Newt would probably be a better president, but his baggage (divorces, resigning as Speaker, etc.) would certainly be exploited by the Dems. He’d destroy BHO in debates, but his past will haunt him. Too bad, because he’s clearly the most knowledgeable, astute and articulate politician in either party. Unfortunately, though, I think much of the electorate is Gingrich-weary at this point in time. I believe Cain would get a much more enthusiastic and energetic base of voters for the general election. Maybe not from the GOP establishment, but I don’t think a whole lot of Republicans care much for what their opinions are these days, anyway.

    Not intending to be a racist here or an elitist or a snob or anything that offends anyone but I’m curious. Lately there has been a section following the daily rant but before the games begin devoted to Facebook comments. I wondering why? There’s some of it in other than English and I don’t know what the conversation is about. I don’t really care and not paranoid about it; just curious.

        I’m with you RVD. Above in the “Please Read” paragraph it clearly states blah, blah………… “prohibits comments not in the native language of the blog” blah, blah……… I had come to the conclusion that the native language of the blog is English (or American if you prefer). If there is a valid reason for the languages other than “it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want” (which is not valid if there are going to be rules established for everyone to follow), I’d like to know what other exceptions there are to the game. Elucidate por favor.

    I have digested your comments about Romney and references to other “candidates” from the Republicans, (?)… My comment is as follows: 1) who are you going to “get behind” if your choice does not win the “primaries”.. “BO”? – – or 2) Set-out the 2012 election? or 3) get Ross Perrow’s to split the vote? – – 4) The Republican candidates and voters have a pension to “Rip each other appart” – – – IN 2012 it is imparative to ralley together or WE WILL FACE THE LOSS OF THIS REBUBLIC!!! IT is CLOSE tobe comming a DICTATORSHIP… Grow-up, think positive of those who may be facing a political machine from HELL…

    I have voted in every election, city, county, state and Federal since 1958… I read their “white papers”, listened to their “retoric” and researched their backgrounds… Only once did my joice even win the Primaries and he lost the election for Presidentcy… WE have never had to face the ultimate winner of the Preidency, Obama, who has set-out to destroy this Republic and has shown ultimant contempt to WE THE PEOPLE, citizens of this Nation, it’s Flag, It’s History, It’s Heritage and most of all the Constitution of the USA….

  9. RVD November 11, 2011 at 10:07 am #

    In all honesty, I have to admit, that because of his knowledge of history, I believe in my gut that Newt is the only one who can beat Obama! He will win every debate with Obama….every one!!!!! My ideal ticket would be Gingrich/Cain. The two would be unbeatable!

    • Sumitch November 11, 2011 at 12:23 pm #

      That would be a strong ticket RVD. Something the GOP doesn’t seem to be familiar with for the last few elections. Or a Cain/Gingrich. They’d complement each other very nicely. Gingrich knows the D C game pretty well, is highly intelligent and has a decent record as speaker. He did bother me years ago when he said the only way we’re going to break the chain unemployment is for the government to raise the children (or something to that effect – not a direct quote). Smacks of Brown Shirts to me. Cain has an impressive resume’; intelligence, proven business success and leadership qualities. He knows how to surround himself with good people, listen to them, then use his abilities to make decisions. Political savvy and business acumen. Throw in free ice cream ;-) and we’re on our way to recovering our greatness.

      • RVD November 11, 2011 at 5:13 pm #

        Sumtich…’re going to have to come up with more evidence of Newt ever saying anything like that……unless he was being facetious, and not at all serious. Depends what he was talking about. That is definitely not something he would say in all seriousness.

        • Sumitch November 11, 2011 at 8:28 pm #

          It’s been years since he said it and I have no idea of how to prove it. I remember it because it shocked me too. But he said it, of that I can assure you. He might have been joking or drinking or any other number of reasons, but he said it.

          Something else I can’t prove but happened.

        Newt does carry a lot of personal baggage that will be hard to unload with some people. Mr Cain is currently suffering from some suspicious bad press and that might cost him with the same crowd. But like I’ve been parroting ABBO.

      • RVD November 11, 2011 at 11:55 pm #

        Mychal….I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this one. Newt’s baggage is old hat….but who goes through life without it? On the other hand, Obama is such a mystery with too many unanswered questions still lurking in his background, not the least of which is…is he or isn’t he a natural born American citizen? I’m sure Newt could and would do a fantastic job with some of those issues, and being the walking Encyclopedia Britannica that He is……..He will bury Obama with facts and his knowledge of history! Obama would never, IMHO, be able to charm his way out of being put on the spot…

        • Sumitch November 12, 2011 at 12:01 am #

          I dunno RVD. Obama has a lot of teleprompters and is a master at deception and misdirection (much like slick willie). We’d need a lot of help with the truth and proof from the media and some influential peeps, which would be hard to get, him not being the chosen one and all.

            I didn’t buy it. I was just in there to get a pack of cigarets for a lady that lives here in Geezer Central and saw them. I quit smoking January 12 of this year when I had my heart attack and triple bypass. I was stuck in recovery for 7 days and I figured that most of the nicotine was out of my system and all that was left was the mental aspect. Being on a morphine drip, I wasn’t in any pain mental or physical. That and the Welbutin in the anti-anxiety meds and the fact that my little female East Indian surgeon, Hema (kinda cute) told me that she promised I’d lose my left leg this year if I didn’t quit smoking did the trick. Dying is one thing. Losing a leg is entirely a different thing. I asked her if she could really tell me for sure that I would lose my leg and she said yes. I asked her to let me know when I was going to die because I was going to buy every carton of Camel unfiltereds in Denton county and smoke them all. She just gave me a blank stare. No sense of humor at all. I’m pretty sure she thinks I’m nuts. My VA psychologist has assured her that I’m not dangerous.

  10. Lotow November 11, 2011 at 9:24 am #

    Mychal, you are SO right about Rove. When questioned this morning on FOX about the coming debate this weekend, he mentioned every candidate except one; can you guess which one he DIDN’T mention? Mr. Cain.
    Today’s “Rant”: Mr. Gingrich had an interesting response to a question yesterday regarding Romney. He said that virutally every politically aware American knows who Romney is. After all, he ran in 2008 and as you stated, was vetted heavily by McCain’s camp. Yet, with all of his voter recognition, he still can’t move off of the the 20% (+/-) mark. That shows that 80% (+/-)are not sold on him.
    A lady called into Michael Savage’s show who lived in Massachusetts when Romney was Governor, she couldn’t have been more adamant about how worthless and fake she thought Romney was during his time running the State. Are we being spoon fed this mannequin because they think he CAN beat Obama or, because they know he CAN’T??? It’s the John McCain conundrum all over again!!
    Have you seen the totals that are pouring into Cain’s coffers?? Whoever “they” are – it appears “they” may be underestimating how aware and informed voters are becoming. God willing, we can overcome the machine and really shake things up and leave the Rove’s of this country with egg on their faces. After all, it has to be lonely for Gloria Allred to be the only one sitting around with egg all over her mug!!!!

    Agitprop. Perfect description for RINO Romney. Mychal, I had to look it up!

    p.s. I was watching our lame-street media NBC this morning on the
    “TODAY” show, looking for intelligent reporting about the lie detector test showing Mr. Cain is telling the whole truth and the same type testing showing the female accuser is simply lying. No surprize here, NBC remained silent on this critical report because Mr. Cain’s exoneration doesn’t meet their agenda to slander real conservatives.

    Mr. Massie

    I see four more years of Obama if the Republican Party doesn’t get off of its backside, stop arguing, slandering and get real about this election. The country wanted a Black man in the WhiteHouse. What did they get. Half white, half black. Now they have the opportunity to put a true, Black American man in the WhiteHouse and what do they do? Kick, slam and belittle because he is concerned about America and the American people.

    I am batting down the hatches for four more of the same if this sillyness doesn’t stop.

    • Sumitch November 11, 2011 at 11:33 am #

      I’m wondering what’s so important about having a “black man” in the office?. Seems to me that we (the citizenship) should worry more about competent democratic leadership and political skill than we should about what color the next president should be. What is a “true black man” anyway? Mychal has been labeled an “Oreo”, an “Uncle Tom” and worse. Does that make him not a true black man? Or, is he not black because he’s conservative?

      I do agree that if the GOP doesn’t do something quickly, we’re going to see four more years of Obama and his criminal “Czars” and our cowardly congress and Obama’s constant “executive orders”. Our county will be well down the road to third world status, even dictatorship if we let him cheat and lie his way in to another four years. The president is trying to destroy the United States. He is more dangerous to this nation than Iran and North Korea combined. Can’t we just for once leave racial division out as it should be? After Obama is safely out of office we can get back to racial division if that’s what the real issue is. I contend that Obama has set the issue back 25 years. If there’s ever been a racist in the office, he personifies it. This sharing is fine if everyone that is sharing is also working to produce something to share. Call it what it is; socialism and it’s never worked in the history of the world.

      dmacleo, both of our Senators have said that this is their last term. We in Texas heard that from Hutchison when she ran for office the first time many terms back and for every election since. She’s not a bad senator, just picky about what promises she acts on. I’ll believe that she’s not running for senator when she doesn’t. Personally, I think she’s got her eye on the gov.’s job, but she might well be counting her chickens before they’re eggs. I was, however, pretty proud of our senator Cronyn went he gave the lying Eric Holder the well earned wringing he deserves. He was in on the gun running up to his neck and is lying like a bear rug and, in the best of Obama teachings, blaming everyone in sight. I hate to see senator Cronyn go.

    The way it is. Obama thinks he walks on water and Romney Walks the top of the fence. He just steps off on the side with the greener grass. He’s a born and bred chip off the old block. He will always tell people what they want to hear. Just like the rest of the good old boys. He’s no more a saint than Obama. I think Perry is a fence walker as well.

      • Sumitch November 11, 2011 at 11:50 am #

        Our problems in Texas were here before Perry and they’re still here. He’s done nothing to relieve them that I can see. He’s taking credit for our relatively low unemployment figures, our job growth and the so called border issue(s). I haven’t seen him do anything that produced the unemployment numbers or the job growth unless it’s stay out of the way. We still have our daily quota of illegal aliens coming in with very little to stop them. He’s not a destroyer like Obama, but he’s no great shakes as a leader (to use the current buzz word) working for the good of the state. I might respectfully ask, not to be argumentative, but to better understand, what is the mess in Texas that he has made?

        I know about his trying to get our young girls vaccinated without parental consent with a serum that turned out to kill some that were, I know he lied about the Trans Texas Corridor. As stated elsewhere, he’s taking credit for positive things in Texas that I’m not sure he had anything to do with. I doubt very seriously that I’d vote for him for President but might just to get him out of the state. But it’s a year away before I have to commit and I still have things to learn about all of them. And with the media, it’s going to be hard to find out any real information except for the ones they are against. Like the stuff we never heard about Bill Clinton’s smoking of left handed cigs, his draft dodging, his lies and his skirt chasing chasing until after he was elected. And if I remember correctly, he promised no new taxes then put in the biggest tax hike in history to that time. Said he didn’t know it was so bad. Maybe he should have engaged his Rhodes brain and done a little research before he opened his lying mouth? I want details on how the candidates propose to do what they say they are going to do. Without the details, it’s just more political BS as far as I’m concerned.

          Bred, born and raised in Texas. There are things I like about Perry as Governor, but I would have serious doubts about his canidacy for President. I could vote for a 3 legged ant against BO, so I guess – IF I had to, I could vote for Perry. My choice by far – CAIN/GINGRICH

        Nor should he receive it.

        The Tea Party stands on its values and is, rightfully, unyielding. When Romney shaves each morning he must be confused as to what or whom he is supposed to be that day.

        I’m gonna pull a Romney here and flip flop or maybe it should be a flop flip. I’ve been impressed with Mr. Romney for the last few cycles and thought because of his political experience, his work with the Olympics, the money he’s made and his devotion to his family that he might make a good President. I know he’s a Mormon, I know the story of the health care when he was governor, but I hadn’t paid too much attention to the flip flops. I’ve learned something in here that gives me pause.

          • Sumitch November 12, 2011 at 12:44 am #

            All I really know about the Olympics is that the traffic in Atlanta when they were held there wasn’t bad at all. They did so much preparation and talking it up about how terrible it was going to be that no one would come out on the streets. That and I know that I’d like to see fencing just once. It’s probably boring, but I’d like to see.

          • Sumitch November 12, 2011 at 1:15 am #

            I guess when I read revolution my mind just went automatically to violence. I watched the History channel the last few nights about the real Vietnam (great job of telling the real story) conflict and with today being Veterans Day, well …………Of course you’re right. There can be dramatic change (revolution) without violence.

        Mychal, Sumitch is right … Perry can’t even win Texas… Your other point re: Karl, add Krauthammer and we should fail to look at this as a Primary election. Rather, we should most likely view it as a Second American Revolution, the seeds of which you and we, have been sowing since ’10. Let’s keep it up, my Friends…

        • Sumitch November 11, 2011 at 8:38 pm #

          lonewolfwb, By second revolution, I’d hate to think that it could come to that. Surely those, even those dissatisfied, could see that would be a disaster and open wounds better left in the history books. Having said that, I’d expect Barry O to laugh his head off if he could get it started. And his wife would be dancing on the graves of the whites.
