Saw this list on Facebook.



1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting's #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

4. Can't speak in a fake, southern, "black preacher voice" when necessary.

5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School...and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

6. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today's America?

7. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

8. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America's scorn.

9. Oh yes.....he's a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

10. And one more point.....pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that's because he made that money HIMSELF.....as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans.



Man, what a scumbag. :evil-grin:

The Dems are doing their best on #3 with Bane. And it's working.

That's because of the mainstream media, which, unfortunately, the majority of America still listens to without ever questioning.

And the worst part is, Kerry married the marrier. He is living the high-life on Republican money. Scumbag.

The Dems are playing Romney like a fiddle and it's painful to watch. Obama is so beatable it isn't funny. And we have Mit. :blue:

Instead of whining about Mitt, we ought to be trumpeting that we have a decent man, one who has intelligence and has lived a good life. And God, he managed to make a lot of money through his hard work and intelligence. Oh, what an example to give to American youth!! We need someone who talks about smoking crack in his youth (he conveniently says nothing about his life a tad later), has mysterious backing for his college (just where did that college money come from?) and has never been in the private sector.

It should be easy to beat someone like Obama. I hope the Republicans and the American people wake up and just lay it on the line----you can have someone who has driven us down that road toward the Greek economy or someone with more than half a brain who at least might be able to help us turn the course of our country around.

Never before has there been such a clear-cut choice, such a black and white comparison (and not talking about race), It's the classic good vs the not so good.

Unfortunately my dear, near half and I'm afraid more of the country still think the good looking, clean, black (or half black) guy still walks on water.:livid:


Romney is having and letting Bain be hung around his neck and his people think it's just going to "go away". :rolleyes: I can't believe the RNC let this fool get the nod...

The differences are obvious ... to most of us and anybody else willing to put in the effort and look beyond the convenience of TV news. But... WE are apparently becoming a minority overall. Add to that ... they (the liberal media, dems) cheat. We dont. Fraud... even massive fraud is their constant friend and companion. Their ideology is a study in the art and the craft of slight of hand to fool as many people as possible. Add to that, the media complex, educational system and the imbedded bureaucracy that is on their side. All the while the end justifies the means.

Now remember all those years we (at least I certainly did) had to defend Bush because he wouldnt defend himself? Remember how McCain wouldnt dare mention Husseins middle name? He even fired a conservative aide who did indeed mention that name. I must say that although I defended Bush all that time I had, had enough half way through Bushs first term and left the republican party to register independent. I didnt leave them. They left me. And ever since I have struggled to get our party back. I am a conservative independent until we get the republican party back from the ruling repukes. And my passion is based on series of issues not a single issue like Mike1234 or whatever his name was. A third party is absolute suicide. So I prefer to make the RINOs go find another party and to take back my beloved republican party.

The midterms was a nice start. But its only a start. Im pretty confident that with the help of the tea party we are going to sweep the House and the Senate again this next election. Thats the great news. The sad news we will still have the Weasel 'R' leadership that tag teamed with the media and the dems to force Romney on us. A decent American, a decent family man and a decent businessman but a typical big government rino nonetheless. And liberalism has a funny twist when it infects those on our side as we saw with Bush and McCain and the machine, the 'leadership' and the bureaucracy they helped infect our government with. Bush as president and McCain as Senator. As if the left needed our help. Anyways I hope Im proven wrong but Romney appears to be living in a fantasy world of political civility. The same disease that overwhelmed Bush and McCain to the end. Before its all through we are going to be starving for red meat.

0bama is a vile, ripe, sitting target. The more he opens his fly trap, the more he exposes his perverseness. And all of us are shouting from the gallery for Romney to say this or that. Or to strike here or there. But Romney appears to be insulated by the GOP machine and the hard core rino advisers he has surrounded himself with from conservative rationale about how to retort and strike back. Its so easy.... to us. To conservatives. Its as obvious as night and day. But as I say liberalism has a special twist when it infects our side. We will have to drag Romney kicking and screaming all the way. We will have to snap him out of his dream walk in civility-land to face the dragon that seeks to devour us and our nation whole. Hopefully we and the tea party will make it easier with the House and the Senate races. And hopefully he picks a conservative VP (not Condi) who is willing to take the arrows and return fire. Like Cheney did for Bush. Gosh ... I miss that man. That was a mans, man. And I hope Liz Cheney steps into the ring at some point.

You know... the 'kick in the pants' is ... this whole thing is so unnecessary. We have a back bench such as we have never seen before. We have dynamite, qualified and willing conservatives up the wazoo. But the GOP leadership just couldnt help itself. They are so afraid of conservatism. And of losing their power ... to conservatives! Sometimes I wonder who is more afraid of us. We HAVE to win this next election. And several elections beyond .. if the GOP doesnt screw that up too, before we can replace the ensconced, ever compromising weasel leadership.

Calm down, no one cares about bain (cept idiots already in the bag for obama) This will blow over and can be turned around after he is nominated. The problem you describe could and would happen to any Republican due to the MSM being in the bag for obama. Do you really think if obama had the same problem the MSM would be hounding him like Romney?

What I do care about is 4 more for Obama and I don't see Mitt stopping him. Bain is doing damage and Mitt's team doesn't know how to stop the bleeding.

What my point is how can anyone stop the damage with the MSM in obamas pocket? Its just has to blow over and if Romney can kick some ass in the debates or (and this is just a crazy hope) he is waiting to release more tax returns hope to show he has no problems in his past.

You just hit a major part of the problem, too much reaction on Romneys part and not enough offense. If Romney has ammo, go after Obama 110% until the MSM can't ignore you.

I just don't see that happening.

I agree. I see this demand to release more tax returns as an opportunity for the left to find even more stuff to attack Romney on. If I were Romney I would agree to release more tax returns when 0bama releases his college transcripts. This is just too obvious and too easy (from a conservative prospective). How tough can it be to play this game? Apparently too tough for Romney advisers.

Of course it is. And a refusal to release them will result in "What's Mitt hiding in those records?". After all, the last four presidents released many years of tax records, as did Mitt's dad when he ran for president. This is already being played out on the obvious left-leaning shows, like Rachel Maddow's show.

It's politics, like always. "What's he hiding?" is pretty common-the birthers like Sheriff Joe continue to try this tactic on Obama, but unfortunately for them, the majority of people accept the birth certificate at face value.

I think the hurdle is that Mitt Romney made his money in the financial sector, rather than the manufacturing. It's really easy to say "I built this factory from nothing, I know how industry works" than it is to say "I built this financial firm from nothing, I know how to exploit government tax loopholes via arbitrage to take existing companies and saddle them with tax-free debt that I get to call an asset in order to return a profit to investors without any need to know what products or services the company was actually providing."

Just sayin'

What's Mitt hiding? Really? Obama hid everything with the MSM help and nobody made a peep. What's Obama hiding? Way more than Mitt I'd wager, and here even we on a conservative board are talking about Mitt's tax returns and stuff.

I agree that Mitt needs to come out swinging more because beating Obama should be easier than falling down. It goes even beyond the birther thing. I believe he's a citizen as I think most people do. What does the RNC do about it? Ignore it of course. I wish we had leadership that would come out and say how important it is to keep our eye on the prize and go against attacks, and then hit the ball into the outfield and run with the obvious Obama failings and NON transparency.

Two right off the top. Obama has taken in about $9k from Bain Capital in campaign contributions, secondly he touts GE, who only have about a third of their workforce in the US. Only Obama can outsource I guess?
