Romney to Hannity: I Wasn't Clear Enough How Bad Obama Was for America
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 06:10 AM

By: Greg Richter

Nearly a year after his presidential campaign ended in failure, Mitt Romney says he wasn't clear enough in 2012 on one basic message: how bad President Obama's policies are for the American economy.

Appearing on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" on Tuesday, the former Massachusetts governor admitted, "I did not make that message clear as I should have during my campaign."

A Washington Post story on Tuesday revealed that Romney's own polls throughout the campaign showed he was likely to lose to Obama, even though reports immediately after his loss showed his entire campaign was caught by surprise.

He might not have won the nation's highest office, but he still has advice for those currently in Washington.

Nothing will get done in government, he said, unless all parties come together. "And this president has not shown that inclination, frankly, since he's been in office. And the country's in the balance."

With a government shutdown more than a week old and a debt ceiling  deadline looming, Romney said, "These are real concerns that will affect a lot of people, and the president's got to engage and work in the job of governing, not just campaigning and posturing."

It totally pisses me off that he....exactly like John McCain (who said that Obama would make a "good" president) put his bullsh*t genteel principles first before FIGHTING AND STANDING UP FOR THE COUNTRY! 

Tantamount to having a Roman emperor say nice things about Attila being a devoted husband and father....and somebody I can work with, etc......instead of just STFU and putting his head on a pike.   Figuratively, of course.   :smokin:

Exactly.  He lost it the moment he allowed Candy Crowley to give Obama the big assist in the debates.  Had he gone for the jugular - at that moment - the tide would have shifted dramatically.

For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Or stauch supporter of baby euthanasia, madam  Hillary Clinton, as mother of the year.  Maybe Charles Manson as lifer of the century.  How about Eric Holder as jurist of the century?

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.

Completely agree.

He had the opportunity, and let the left rule the day.

It was a gentleman against a punk, and his slobbering lackeys.  He needed to fight, and he didn't.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
