Comments on: Will Romney’s convention be Palin and Paul’s insurrection? http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/08/06/will-romneys-convention-be-palin-and-pauls-insurrection/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jhkim http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2012/08/06/will-romneys-convention-be-palin-and-pauls-insurrection/#comment-58453 Wed, 08 Aug 2012 17:42:00 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=13741#comment-58453 “The Great Debate”?
Debaters usually have a position that they can articulate and the ability to move others’ opinions based on reasoning and the application of knowledge to the present reality.
Neither the GOP establishment, the Tea Party nor any of the “friendly little hate groups” that usually vote with the “conservatives” are able to do this.
Watching the ongoing infighting should be really good sales of munitions for the upcoming Revolution.
True Freedom becomes a reality when the masses have “nothing left to lose”.

I hear that Barry is giving all his people at the White House a raise, perhaps you should resign your job with Reuters, mail your Dues to the New Party and apply for a job. I’m sure you’ll do really well.

This really seems curious to you? Putting Dubya on the campaign trail is a lose-lose for the whole GOP, that’s why you won’t so much as hear a soundbite out of the guy. Anyone who still holds a glimmer of nostalgia for The Decider is already going to vote for Romney; you would only serve to antagonize the already suspicious fiscal conservatives and drive away legions of independents by soliciting his efforts.

The GOP has to concentrate on the senate. His only hope would be to veep Palin. That’s how bad it is.

Even more curious is the collective forgetting of the last Republican president: still haven’t seen Bush 43 out campaigning for Romney, nor does it seem like he (or Bush 41) is especially welcome at Camp Willard. As for Ron Paul, I don’t see how he does not get a prime time spot: the kids love the guy, and the GOP can’t be the angry old white guy party on TV. The only thing worse than appearing to not have control is for Romney to appear intimidated. And yeah: wheel out McCain, too.

Are you sure you want Palin and Paul? I think you mean Palin and Putin (remember they were neighbors).

Nobody is connecting except the zombies and zealots(even they suspect the koolaid is bad).
Romney goes to hardware store to buy “hardware stuff” to connect as “normal” (so awkward too)even buying groceries which his personal chef has always done for him and sweety. Once a Super-Rich Corporate Plastic Boy…always a Super-Rich Corporate Plastic Boy.
Sarah Palin identified as a “mistake” by super-shooter Cheney (He is sooo intelligent).The election is a question. Strip away all the hot button issues and see the question that is asked. Romney and Obama are the wrong answers. Palin and Paul are the right answer…but the elites are fearful and paranoid. Look this way folks, do not look at the massive disconnet with governments all over the world. The disconnect continues in near freefall velocity!

He thought he could even up the race against a Black candidate by introducing a WOMAN as VP when he KNEW that THIS particular woman (Sarah Palin) didn’t have the experience or intellectual capacity to take over as President of the U.S. He hoped her barely minimum credentials (being a 1st time governor half-way through her 1st term), would “qualify” her in the eyes of voters and hoped she wouldn’t say much during the campaign. What he let loose was a Soap Opera Queen with simplistic views and NO outstanding educational background; NO foreign policy knowledge; and NO political savvy, writings or standing upon the Republican Party. Even Rush Limbaugh has never had the negative effect on the Republican Party that the ginned-up, Palin-inspired Tea Party has wrought.

This election is Sarah Palin and the Tea Party’s to lose with the plaintive victim being the Republican Party including the moderates of the party (like Boehner and Collins). That’s why a number of them have quit. The Republicans who understand how to win a GENERAL election have been pushed into a corner and painted with the same colors branding Palin, Bachmann, West, DeMint and Rand Paul as virtual fascist extremists.

His name was George W. Bush. How’d that work out? Peace and prosperity all around?

Romney simply has no path to 270 votes.
