If Mitt Romney is elected President of the United States of America… evAr, it will be the greatest trick since Keyser Söze.
Mitt Romney is not running for President.
Whether you like Republicans’ shenanigans or not, you have to respect their Super Villain tactics and styles.
In the movies, Super Villains tell you what they’re going to do, and then they proceed to do it, and tell you to your face, “**** You!! :D” and everybody’s about to fall for it until the Super Hero saves the day.
Republicans do the exact same thing, and it’s amazing, astounding, and awesome to watch it go down. :D
I’ve been watching and writing about this Republican nomination process for more than a full year now, and I’m really tired of this garbage, so let’s go over a few facts…
Let us begin with Mitch McConnell:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/2gM-1HbK4qU
McConnell: “What can Americans expect from Republicans now?… Let’s start with the big picture… Over the past week, some have said it was indelicate of me to suggest that our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term…. But the fact is, if our primary legislative goals are to repeal and replace the health spending bill, to end the bailouts, cut spending, and shrink the size and scope of government, the only way to do all of those things is to put someone in the White House who won’t veto ANY of these things.”
So dude just said that he was doubling down on his statement that all he was going to worry about in between 2010 and 2012 was making sure that current President Barack Obama is not elected to a second term.
What does that mean for *YOU* and your ability to get a job? o_O
That means “Who gives a **** about you and your ability to get a job? :D”
McConnell just told you to your face “**** whatever you elected us to do, we’re going to do what we WANT to do, which is make sure this particular dude is only President for FOUR YEARS instead of EIGHT YEARS”.
How could that possibly, possibly, POSSIBLY be a primary goal of *YOUR* elected representatives? o_O
Think about it this way…. Let’s say you’re a chick, and I told you to your face that for the next two years, my primary goal was to make sure that you break up with your boyfriend.
Would you believe *ANYTHING* I said, for the next two years?? (or ever again?)
This is effectively what Republicans did. They agreed to cockblock Obama.
Don’t take *MY* word for it! >:D
WASHINGTON — As President Barack Obama was celebrating his inauguration at various balls, top Republican lawmakers and strategists were conjuring up ways to submarine his presidency at a private dinner in Washington.
The event — which provides a telling revelation for how quickly the post-election climate soured — serves as the prologue of Robert Draper’s much-discussed and heavily-reported new book, “Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives.”
According to Draper, the guest list that night (which was just over 15 people in total) included Republican Reps. Eric Cantor (Va.), Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), Paul Ryan (Wis.), Pete Sessions (Texas), Jeb Hensarling (Texas), Pete Hoekstra (Mich.) and Dan Lungren (Calif.), along with Republican Sens. Jim DeMint (S.C.), Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Tom Coburn (Okla.), John Ensign (Nev.) and Bob Corker (Tenn.). The non-lawmakers present included Newt Gingrich, several years removed from his presidential campaign, and Frank Luntz, the long-time Republican wordsmith. Notably absent were Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) — who, Draper writes, had an acrimonious relationship with Luntz.
Even though it’s interesting that John Boehner, one of the supposed Republican leaders, wasn’t there, even though he gets chumped off in public on a regular basis by Eric Cantor, who *WAS* there.. It’s more interesting that Gingrich admits that this situation occurred:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/yd0fVf5CsCc
To be fair.. [ Disclaimer: I'm a Newt Gingrich fan. He's pretty much like The Penguin. :) He's really good at what he does, and you could pretty much write a textbook on villainy based on what he's accomplished and gotten away with over his long-ass career, so I tip my hat to him. :) ] Gingrich’s explanation for the pre-planned undermining of President Obama’s goals for the United States of America was “He basically cut a deal with Harry Reid, the Democratic Senate Majority Leader, and speaker Nancy Pelosi, and they rammed through an 800 billion dollar stimulus package, with no Republican really being involved, and in fact, no elected official even read the bill before it was voted on in The House, and I think that was the decisive mistake of the Presidency.”
Let’s assume, for the sake of argument, that that was the actual reason why Republicans are anti-Obama. :)
It’s currently campaign season, and I have not seen *ONE* Republican attack ad that has the word “stimulus” in it.
None. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Zippo. Nothing.
Instead.. Republicans are running around trying to convince people (and succeeding in the sticks, where people drink too much Moonshine and utilize too much Meth) that President Obama is neither a citizen of the United States of America, or a member of the Christian religion.. As if these things wouldn’t have been vetted by the Democrats when they selected the first viable black man to run for President.
No.. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do not count as viable. Those were jokes. There was no way in hell either one of them was evAr going to come anywhere near being elected PotUS.
My hat’s off to “Reagan is the Prez, but I voted for Shirley Chisholm” for making a political and civil rights statement, but she wasn’t going to win either.
Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm (November 30, 1924 – January 1, 2005) was an American politician, educator, and author. She was a Congresswoman, representing New York’s 12th Congressional District for seven terms from 1969 to 1983. In 1968, she became the first African American woman elected to Congress. On January 25, 1972, she became the first major-party black candidate for President of the United States and the first woman to run for the Democratic presidential nomination (Margaret Chase Smith had previously run for the Republican presidential nomination). She received 152 first-ballot votes at the 1972 Democratic National Convention.
So there is No. Way. At. All. that the first viable black Presidential candidate would not have been vetted on simple issues such as citizenship and religion.
That doesn’t deter Republicans though, because they are counting on the stupidity of the masses.
Let’s go back to the dating example, for clarity.
Let’s say I wanted to steal someone’s girlfriend.
Let’s say that I thought it would be an effective tactic to get her to dump him by telling her “You know… Your boyfriend isn’t a man. :)”, even though she knows damned well that he has a dick.
I would have to think she’s a complete idiot.
A buffoon. A simpleton. A dummy.
Nevertheless.. Republicans are running around in the year 2012, trying to get people to not vote for Obama by saying he’s neither an American citizen nor a Christian, when they tried the exact same thing in 2008, and John McCain got his knot rocked in a virtual landslide by the first viable black, Negro, colored, or African-American Presidential candidate in the history of the world.
So, trying the same tactics that Republicans lost miserably with in 2008 four years later is the equivalent of me coming back four years later to the same chick that’s still with the same dude and going “um… You know, he *STILL* doesn’t have a dick.”
C’Mon, Sunnn. :/
Moving to a sub-villain, otherwise known as a henchman, listen to this Herb talking about deliberate Republican voter suppression tactics:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/EuOT1bRYdK8
Mike Turzai: “Voter ID, which is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.. Done! :D”
Isn’t Governor Romney supposed to win because he’s the better candidate? o_O
Isn’t he supposed to win because of his plan(s) to create more jobs for Americans?
Isn’t he supposed to win because he has better ideas than our current American President, Barack Obama?
See what I mean? These people are just amazing with their blatant “Look what we’re going to do to you, muuhahahahaaa and there’s nothing you can do to stop our Super Villainy!! >:D”
Why in the world should Voter ID cause Mitt Romney to win *ANY* state, unless he wouldn’t win without that tactic?
And then people go for this like a bunch of suckers and I have to hear about it every day in the media.
Then.. The Republicans claim they don’t like Obamacare, but they decided to send the CREATOR. OF. OBAMACARE, Mitt Romney, against Obama as an “Alternative”.
YouTube Link => youtu.be/9IJsiBHYTFg
Michael Cannon: “In every important respect, the Obama plan and the Romney plan are identical”
Even Rick Santorum said the Republicans shouldn’t have sent Romney if they wanted to win:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/lfCFnCvJqi4
Santorum: “Mitt Romney agreed with Barack Obama on every, single, thing that he did. Because he put it in place in Massachusetts. It’s the blueprint for Obamacare. Don’t believe me.. Ask Obama.
And look at what Governor Romney said.. Not only defended Romneycare… In 2008, he said “Mandates are good! I like mandates! Mandates work! :D”.. Those same mandates are the ones that are being brought before the United States Supreme Court.
He argued that there should be mandates at the Federal level.. That people should pay taxes if they don’t get insurance.”
So how is it possible that Republicans, who are obviously and demonstrably well-versed in Super Villain tactics, sent Mitt Romney, the author of Obamacare up against President Obama, screaming from the top of his lungs that he’s going to repeal Obamneycare “on day one of his Presidency”?.. Because he isn’t supposed to win.
Mitt Romney is not running for President.
If you would like proof of this, listen to Grover Norquist:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/Kl0bmgHc9Pk
He really says too much stuff that I don’t care about typing right now. To hear it in its exact context, watch the video. Here’s the point of what he said:
Norquist: “We are not interviewing for Fearless Leader. We don’t need a President to tell us which way to go. We want the Paul Ryan budget, which cuts spending 6 trillion dollars… [snip] We just need a President to sign this stuff.
We don’t need someone to think it up, or design it. We have a House and a Senate… The leadership now, for the modern Conservative movement for the next 20 years will be coming out of the House and the Senate.
So focus on electing the most Conservative Republican who can win in each House seat, and the most Conservative Republican who can win in each Senate seat, and then pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become the President of the United States.“
Mitt Romney has enough working digits to handle a pen.
Mitt Romney is not running for President.
He is on the payroll.
Similar to Lee Majors, Mitt Romney is “The Fall Guy”.
Like Norquist said.. Romney is not supposed to think anything up. He’s not supposed to design anything. He’s not supposed to run anything. He’s supposed to sign whatever Republicans tell him to sign, and that’s the end of his job description.
This explains a few things…
First of all, it explains why no viable Republicans elected to run for President in 2012.
I had been wondering about this from day 01. How come no viable Republicans wanted to run for PotUS, even though their entire platform was that President Obama did such a horrible job over the last four years that *ANYBODY* they sent against him should win? o_O
That’s like saying that Katie Holmes got divorced from Tom Cruise, and then only a bunch of Herbs line up to date her.
What sense does that make? Why wouldn’t viable guys want to date Katie Holmes?
Why wouldn’t viable Republicans want an easy, shoo-in, slam-dunk ticket to the Presidency of the United States of America?
Because they know what Grover Norquist said in that video above. The Republicans are looking to hire a puppet to do their bidding, not a President to run our country.
It’s better to be the actual Governor of New Jersey than to be the fake President of the United States.
Not to mention.. If they ran against the first black President in American history and *LOST*, they would instantly become political pariahs.
So they can’t afford to win, and they can’t afford to lose, so they refuse to throw their hats in the ring at all.
Mitt Romney can afford to win or lose, because he’s rich, either way. :)
Romney has nothing to lose at all, in fact. He will either go down in history as a really rich guy or a really rich guy that was President of the United States.
Notice, however, when he does well at speaking, and when he does not.
If he’s speaking from a script that was provided to him by his Republican handlers, he does well.
If he’s speaking on his own, from his own heart, desires, intuition, and interest, he does horribly.
The media likes to call what he says “Gaffes” = An unintentional act or remark causing embarrassment to its originator; a blunder.
They’re not actually mistakes. They’re glitches in The Matrix, like the double-cat.
Romney knows he isn’t running for President.
Norquist knows Romney isn’t running for President.
Gingrich knows Romney isn’t running for President.
Romney’s entire purpose in this election cycle is to regurgitate propaganda, to the effect of hopefully baiting Obama into countering Romney’s nonsense with positions that Republicans are going to be able to quote and misquote in their quest to take over control of both the House and the Senate.
If Romney actually wins, it will be by accident. A fortunate (for him) mistake, and a feather in his cap, to go along with his stellar “Went from filthy rich to filthy, stinking rich” career.
The Conservatives know Romney isn’t a Conservative.
Everybody knows Romney authored the blueprint for Obamacare.
Everybody’s seen the infinite videos of Romney swearing up and down that he believes in something, and then swearing he’s down with something that’s diametrically opposed to his previous “belief”.
The Republicans have had months to prepare him in this cycle, PLUS, he ran for President four years ago, yet he still isn’t any good at pretending he cares about commoners or making diplomatic statements.
How is this possible? o_O How did the R’s have 4 years *AFTER* he ran for President the first time to prepare him, and he still isn’t “ready”?
Romney speaks in generalities, and basically says “I would do [the opposite thing from what President Obama just did]“, yet refuses to answer any questions about exactly *HOW* he would accomplish that.
This is because he *HAS* no plan. He’s on the payroll. He’s the front man. His job is to advertise truths and blatant fabrications about President Obama so that when Romney loses, the Republicans can say “LOOK! :O LOOK! :O .. There’s a non-American non-Christian running the Federal government!! :O” and rally everyone they can find to vote in their state and local elections for Republican candidates, enabling the plan that Grover Norquist outlined, above.
Romney’s only job is to be “some guy other than Obama”. Anything he does other than that is “extra”. It doesn’t matter what his views are on anything, because the Republican plan is to run the show from the House and the Senate, utilizing whomever they can place in the White House as a puppet. A bill-signer.
This is why Republicans are hopping mad over what Romney’s Campaign Press Secretary Andrea Saul said live on national television (Fox News, even) a couple of days ago:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/NUJdewtCtuY
Saul: “If people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney’s healthcare plan, they would have *HAD* healthcare.
There are a lot of people losing their jobs and losing their healthcare in President Obama’s economy, and that’s why Governor Romney is running, to get people back to work.”
ummmmmmmmmm Say What?? :D HAHAHAHA
They would have had healthcare under ROMNEYcare? The blueprint for OBAMAcare? Which everyone except Mitt Romney admits is the exact same thing? :D
So NOW! :D hahahaha The Usual Suspects, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter are going ballistic, berserk, and plum loco because Romney’s job (and, therefore, by extension, the job of his staff) is to shut the **** up and let Conservatives craft the narrative leading to Romney’s puppet Presidency:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/T-JN5egDH-c
Coulter: Anyone who donates to Mitt Romney, and I mean the big donors, oughtta call Mitt Romney and say if Andrea Saul isn’t fired, and off the campaign tomorrow, they are not giving another dime, because it is not worth fighting for this man, if this is the kind of spokesman he has.. To respond to an ad like this by citing HEALTHCARE IN MASSACHUSETTS??? :O
No.. I’m serious about this… There is no point in us going to a convention and pushing for this man if he’s employing morons like this.
This ad is the turning point, and she has nearly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. She should be off the campaign.”
[ Disclosure: I'm an Ann Coulter fan. I find it extremely impressive that she has crafted this character she portrays and has carved out her own niche where she plays an unique role in the world of television punditry. :) ]
So, Coulter just said, again on national television, again on Fox, that touting Romney’s professional or political achievements is off-limits to him and his staff, so long as those achievements aren’t in line with current Conservative goals, such as repealing Obamacare, which is actually Romneycare, which is why Santorum told them not to send Romney against Obama from the giddyap.
And let’s not forget this evergreen Coulter gem from back in the day!! :D
YouTube Link => youtu.be/vo6SOpOE788
Question: “Hi. I was just wondering what you think about the playing field for the 2012 elections.”
Coulter: “ummm… It’s… I may as well tell you what my prediction is, because then you can either totally congratulate me or laugh at me two years from now… I think.. ummmm… I think… I don’t like to, um… I don’t like to attack Republicans… uh.. Many of them have excellent.. excellent.. characteristics, and they’re good in the positions they’re in now, and I support them in their positions as Representatives or Governor, or Fox News Host, hehehe.. um.. But I think.. Uh… Well, I’ll put it in a nutshell.
If we don’t run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and we’ll lose.“
Notice how she said “Two years from now”. Two years ago, Republicans knew that they were going to lose if they fielded Mitt Romney.
This is because Romney ran FOUR YEARS AGO, and they’ve already seen what he’s bringing and not-bringing to the table.
There’s this grand hoopla about Mitt Romney not releasing his Tax Returns for public scrutiny… In fact, Romney released 23 years’ worth of tax returns to John McCain’s team in 2008, when Romney was being vetted for a vice presidential spot.
McCain subsequently selected SARAH PALIN as his Vice Presidential running mate and got SQUASHED by Obama in the 2008 Presidential election.
So, the Republicans have already seen Romney’s tax returns, and they still allowed him to receive the GOP nomination by not running *ANY* viable candidates like Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Mitch Daniels, Jeb Bush, Haley Barbour.. NOBODY wanted to run for President in 2012. :D
No guys want to hook up with Katie Holmes, now that she’s single, attractive, famous, popular, and rich.
Yeah… Right. >:D
Here are some more Republican reactions to Romney’s Campaign Press Secretary Andrea Saul’s comments:
Here is Rush Limbaugh’s 11-minute segment discussing the Andrea Saul situation:
YouTube Link => youtu.be/Y_ZmrILqkSg
Obviously, I could go on with this ad infinitum.
Watch the videos that I’ve linked in this article, listen to the Republicans for yourself, and decide for yourself whether or not Mitt Romney is running for President.
I say he is not. I say he’s on the payroll, and this is why Republicans start bitching and moaning every time he goes off-script.
Remember how they tried to pass Rick Perry off as a viable national candidate, with commercials including American flags and Perry posing for pictures?
That worked perfectly well, until Perry actually started speaking, and then his so-called “candidacy” went straight down the tubes.
Michele Bachmann? Herman Cain? The Republicans didn’t even *TRY* to field a candidate that SHOULD HAVE been able to defeat President Obama in the 2012 election.
The Republicans have intentionally hit a short lob to set up the Democrats overhead smash.
They’re using the pending Romney landslide loss as evidence that the states need to rally ’round their individual flags and elect more Republicans to Congress.
The viable candidates got the memo and didn’t want any part of this. They decided to stay as Governors and whatever other jobs they currently have.
Ask yourself what Romney’s “jobs plan” is, and you’ll come up empty, because he isn’t allowed to say.
His job is to sign bills.
To be fair.. The Republicans say that government doesn’t create jobs.. The private sector does.
Romney’s “jobs plan”, therefore, will be to relax regulations on businesses so they feel confident in hiring new employees, and not raise taxes on the so-called “job creators”, so they have more money to create jobs with, which Americans HOPE AND PRAY they don’t create in China and India.
Being fair about another point… I’m entirely disappointed in how the Democrats have chosen to campaign against this non-candidate, Romney. :/
All you have to say about Romney is “What, SPECIFICALLY, is he going to do differently, which is going to lead to more Americans getting jobs?”, and Romney loses. Badly.
All you have to do is expose him as talking trash with no substance and play the myriad videotapes with him arguing both sides of the same argument, depending on the group he’s trying to persuade to vote for him, and he loses.
All you have to do is line up the features of Romneycare on the left side and Obamacare on the right side.
All you have to do is show him stumbling and bumbling his way across Europe, offending foreigners at every stop.
All you have to do is show ACTUAL REALITY and there’s no viable comparison between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama as politicians, statesmen, and especially not leaders of the entire free world.
So, Yeah.. I’m finding this political process strange and embarrassing, from both sides, right now.
Anyway.. There’s no way that Mitt Romney should be elected PotUS in 2012, or ever.
It’s obvious to me. It should be obvious to you if you listen to the Republicans’ own words. It should have been obvious to the Republicans in 2008 and more-than-obvious to them 4 years later, in 2012.
From what I’ve seen, Romney is actually a nice guy. I’m not kidding. :) When you see him around his friends and family, he appears to be a kind man, and not a jerk.
With all the videotape I’ve seen so far, about things he’s said and situations he’s been in over many, many, many, many years, I haven’t seen him angry.
I’ve seen him ADAMANT about his position, which some people interpret as anger, because politicians and pundits are supposed to flash fake smiles at each other when they’re speaking.. But I haven’t seen any footage of him (as opposed to MANY other Republican bigwigs) that makes me say “Dag… THIS GUY is a *JERK*! :/”
Regardless of the negative campaigning against him, Mitt Romney is not a Super Villain.. although he’s surrounded by them.
So I wish him more success and more millions and I’ll be the first one to DVR his upcoming “reality” television show when he loses, but there’s no way that I can see him being elected President of the United States of America in 2012 AD, because his own team looks to him as a puppet, instead of as a leader.
