Comments on: Willard Milhous Romney http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2012/09/19/willard-milhous-romney/ Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:54:39 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: JohnDrinkwater http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/2012/09/19/willard-milhous-romney/#comment-9555 Tue, 25 Sep 2012 03:39:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/jackshafer/?p=1200#comment-9555 I’m rooting for Romney for two reasons: 1) the entertainment value and 2) his policies could undermine the US government to such a degree that we on the left might get that revolution we’ve been looking for. But reason number 1 is good enough alone. The guy is a freak. Like Cosmo Kramer once said, “Who doesn’t wanna watch freaks?”

At war with is supporters? (stabbed ’em in the back), Dirty Tricks? Doesn’t get much nastier or criminal than Axelrod, Chicago and every one of Obama’s elections to office. How about the Iranian green revolution where Obama sentenced hundreds of thousands of Iranian youth to death or the gulag by not saying boo when the kids stood up to the Ayatollahs?
The author is a shill/hack for Obama, the regal president entitled Barack Marie Antoinette Milhous Obummer.

It wouldn’t be hard to do.

At the end of this article comes the most important part – Nixon cared above all (properly) about foreign policy. Dick Nixon understood the world- and how it works. No President since him comes close to this critical characteristic.

… damn with faint praise, assent with civil leer,
And, without sneering, teach the rest to sneer.

You ask what Romney really cares about? The only thing we can be sure he cares about is Mitt. But all his backpedalling, doubling-down, flip-flopping and Etch-a-Sketching seems to imply that that’s the ONLY thing he cares about.

So thanks for making the connection to Robme, as a fair warning to what awaits US if this craven, evil, hypocritical Nixon clone is elected. Knowing his family received welfare payments when immigrating back from Mexico, after staging an insurrection against US government to stand up for polygamy in Utah just shows how Robme hates his own history and projects the things he hates about himself onto others. A truly disturbed individual, like Nixon.

This piece seems to a certain extent to cloak Romney’s unconscionable remarks in some legitimacy. It goes far beyond “over flattering donors”, and I believe it does show a sincere Romney speaking to his ‘peeps’. It is demeaning, disrespectful, crude, and all lies. Richard Nixon was certainly not without core beliefs, though he was indeed a pragmatist, and more.
A final thought. I truly disliked Nixon and marched and petitioned for his impeachment, but Mitt Romney could not hold a candle to Nixon’s foreign policy or political gravitas.
