Astounding. At 3:00 in, Romney provides indisputable proof that he is the last person we should entrust with an Obamacare repeal:
On Twitter, Campion1581 nailed it:
“First of all, it's not worth getting angry about.” Breathtaking. In a just world, this would finish Mitt's candidacy.Watch the whole clip if you missed it. It's clear that Romney really doesn't have a problem with a government takeover of health care. He's a technocrat who believes government is the solution, not the problem. That's why its expansion into health care isn't "worth getting angry about." In one little sentence, he revealed himself as a patronizing, tone-deaf, establishment RINO devoid of core conservative values. He's everything the Tea Party opposes. Peter Robinson:
Liberty--liberty--"not worth getting angry about." That would have come as news to certain residents of Massachusetts, including John Hancock, John Adams, and, come to think of it, all those who participated in the very first tea party.Rick Santorum gets it and can articulate it. He is angry about it. Too bad Blitz cut the argument off and sent in the clown. If Michele Bachmann had been there, she would have torn Romney apart for that remark.
George Neumayr on Romney:
Romney continues to appear as a more handsome and taller GOP version of Michael Dukakis -- the bloodless and visionless technocrat who, as Newt suggests, just wants to "manage the decay" in Washington, D.C. [. . .]Read the whole thing.
The Republican establishment has been working overtime to hoodwink GOP voters into overlooking the ideological differences between Romney and Newt, trotting out Big Tenters with zero expertise on conservatism to claim that Newt is not "conservative." Against an immutable standard of conservatism, he is not, but next to Romney he looks like Edmund Burke.
The establishment never fails to choose the more liberal of two leading candidates. The boys from the yacht club have once again decided to lose with a semi-reformed RINO.
Doug Hagin on Santorum's evisceration of Romney:
WOW! Good for Santorum! I wish he had a chance, but, again, it seems that the GOP in incapable of nominating anyone with any real principlesTechnically speaking, it's impossible for a droid like Romney to be eviscerated. That would require viscera. But I get Doug's drift.
