At this point, it appears very likely that Mitt Romney is going to be the Republican nominee for president in 2012.  He has raised far more money than any of the other candidates, he is leading or is near the lead in all of the early states, the mainstream media have anointed him as the frontrunner and a number of recent polls show that most Republicans fully expect Romney to win the nomination.  So will Mitt Romney be the next president of the United States?  Well, he certainly fits the part.  He looks like a president and he speaks very well.  But when you look at what he really stands for that is where things become very troubling.  The truth is that Mitt Romney is either very wrong or very “soft” on every single major issue.  It would be a huge understatement to refer to Mitt Romney as a RINO (“Republican in name only”).  When you closely examine their positions, there is very, very little difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.  Sure, Romney and Obama will say the “right things” to the voters during election season, but the reality is that a Romney administration would be so similar to an Obama administration that you would hardly know that a change has taken place.  What you are about to read about Mitt Romney should alarm you very much.  Mitt Romney would be a an absolute disaster for this country, and America cannot afford another disastrous presidency.


The fact that Barack Obama looked sharp and could give inspiring speeches helped him go a long way back in 2008.  Well, it is the same thing with Romney.  The guy looks very presidential and he sounds very presidential.  When backed into a corner, he is extremely slick.  He rarely makes mistakes and he is very polished.

Mitt Romney is a “politician” in the worst sense of the word.  As his past has demonstrated, he will do and say just about anything in order to get elected.  The positions he has taken during this campaign season have been carefully calculated to help him win both the Republican nomination and the general election.

That is why so many call Mitt Romney a “flip-flopper”.  Romney will take just about any political position if he thinks that it will help him.  Mitt Romney’s wife, Ann Romney, once made the following statement about her husband….

“He can argue any side of a question. And sometimes you think he’s really believing his argument, but he’s not.”

So keep that in mind while reading the following information.  Mitt Romney is trying to claim that he is a “conservative” and that he is looking out for the American people, but those claims simply are not true.

The following are 16 reasons why Mitt Romney would be a really, really bad president….

#1 Obamacare was one of the worst pieces of legislation ever passed by the U.S. Congress.  Mitt Romney says that he would repeal Obamacare, but the reality is that Romneycare was what Obamacare was based on.  In fact, a recent MSNBC article brought to light some new information about the relationship between Romneycare and Obamacare….

Newly obtained White House records provide fresh details on how senior Obama administration officials used Mitt Romney’s landmark health-care law in Massachusetts as a model for the new federal law, including recruiting some of Romney’s own health care advisers and experts to help craft the act now derided by Republicans as “Obamacare.”

The records, gleaned from White House visitor logs reviewed by NBC News, show that senior White House officials had a dozen meetings in 2009 with three health-care advisers and experts who helped shape the health care reform law signed by Romney in 2006, when the Republican presidential candidate was governor of Massachusetts.

Mitt Romney continues to defend Romneycare, but the reality is that it really is a total nightmare for Massachusetts.  The following is how one blogger summarized some of the key points of Romneycare….

• Punitive To Individuals. Everyone must buy health insurance or face tax penalties equal to 50% of cost of standard policy.
• Hundreds of millions of dollars being spent on free hospital care were converted into subsidies to help the needy buy insurance.
• A health insurance “exchange” was established to help connect the uninsured with private health plans at more affordable rates.
• Health plans can offer consumers higher deductibles and more restrictive physician and hospital networks in order to lower costs.
• Punitive to Businesses with 11 or more workers that do not offer insurance must pay a $295 per employee fee.
• Established payment policy advisory board; one Board member must be from Planned Parenthood. No pro-life organization represented.
• Provides Taxpayer-Funded Abortions for copay of $50.

So what have been the results of Romneycare in Massachusetts?  According to the Daily Caller, health care costs and health insurance premiums have gone up dramatically in Massachusetts….

Since the bill became law, the state’s total direct health-care spending has increased by a remarkable 52 percent. Medicaid spending has gone from less than $6 billion a year to more the $9 billion. Many consumers have seen double-digit percentage increases in their premiums.

All of that certainly sounds a whole lot like Obamacare.

Unfortunately, the other Republican candidates have not taken advantage of this weakness.  According to one brand new poll, 6 times as many Republicans view Romneycare unfavorably as view it favorably.  This is something that the other candidates should be jumping on big time.

#2 During his time as governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney significantly raised taxes. The following is an excerpt from a CBS News article….

Mitt Romney’s Harvard MBA and gold-plated resume convinced many business leaders he would follow in the tradition of corporate-friendly Republicans when he was elected governor of Massachusetts in 2002.

Within three years, some had a vastly different opinion, after Romney’s efforts raised the tax bill on businesses by $300 million

The same article also notes that Romney jacked up “fees and fines” on Massachusetts taxpayers substantially….

Romney and lawmakers also approved hundreds of millions in higher fees and fines during his four years in office.

Many in the Massachusetts business community were quite disgusted with Romney by the end of his tenure.  Peter Nicholas, the chairman of Boston Science Corporation, says that “tax rates on many corporations almost doubled because of legislation supported by Romney.

#3 Government spending in Massachusetts increased significantly under Mitt Romney.  An advocate of smaller government he most definitely is not.

This was especially true for the last two budgets passed under Romney.  In fiscal year 2006, government spending in Massachusetts increased by 7.6 percent.  In fiscal year 2007, government spending in Massachusetts increased by a whopping 10.2 percent.

#4 It turns out that Mitt Romney is a believer in the theory of man-made global warming.  In fact, Al Gore recently praised on Mitt Romney on his blog. In a post entitled “Good for Mitt Romney — though we’ve long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis“, Al Gore lavished the following praise on the former Massachusetts governor….

“While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party”

Not only that, it is also very important to remember that while Mitt Romney was governor, Massachusetts became the very first state to pass a law to regulate carbon emissions.

#5 If Mitt Romney becomes president, we may actually have “cap and trade” shoved down our throats.  While campaigning for president in 2007, Mitt Romney said that he would support a “cap and trade” carbon tax scheme for the entire world….

“I support Cap-and-Trade on a global basis but not the USA going alone. I want to do it with other nations involved and on a global scale.”

#6 Mitt Romney had a horrible record of creating jobs while governor of Massachusetts.  According to Boston Herald business reporter Bret Arends, only one state in the entire country was worse at creating jobs while Romney was in office….

“During the four years Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts, it had the second worst jobs record of any state in America…it wasn’t a regional issue. The rest of New England created nearly 200,000 jobs.”

#7 Mitt Romney was a very enthusiastic supporter of the Wall Street bailouts.  When the time comes for more Wall Street bailouts it seems almost certain that Mitt Romney will bail them out again.

#8 If Romney becomes president, get ready for a flood of liberal judges.  While he was governor of Massachusetts, there were actually significantly more Democrats among his judicial appointments than there were Republicans.

#9 Mitt Romney is incredibly soft on illegal immigration.  Back in 2007, Mitt Romney made the following statement….

“But my view is that those 12 million who’ve come here illegally should be given the opportunity to sign up to stay here”

#10 While he was governor, Mitt Romney received advice on global warming and carbon emissions from the man who is now the top science adviser to Barack Obama.  His name is John P. Holdren, and he has some very, very disturbing ideas.  For example, he once wrote the following….

“A program of sterilizing women after their second or third child, despite the relatively greater difficulty of the operation than vasectomy, might be easier to implement than trying to sterilize men.

The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

Holdren also believes that compulsory abortion would be perfectly legal under the U.S. Constitution….

“Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

So if this is the kind of person that Mitt Romney relied on for “scientific advice” while he was governor, what kind of people would Romney bring in to his administration once he is president?

#11 Mitt Romney has been a huge supporter of gun control laws.  When he was running for governor in Massachusetts, he made the following statement….

“We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts- I support them…I believe they help protect us, and provide for our safety.”

#12 Mitt Romney once claimed that he was more “pro-choice” than Ted Kennedy, but now he claims that he is pro-life.  In a recent article for WorldNetDaily, Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt explained why so many voters are still skeptical….

This year he’s the only major Republican presidential candidate who has yet to sign the Susan B. Anthony List pledge to defend life and defund Planned Parenthood nationwide. Candidates Bachmann, Perry, Gingrich, Paul, Pawlenty and Santorum all signed the pledge, although it should be noted Herman Cain supports everything in the pledge except the Fetal Pain Act. (Cain is not fully pro-life, either.) And who can forget Mitt’s famous 2002 campaign debate bragging repeatedly that he’s more pro-choice than Ted Kennedy?

#13 During this campaign season, Mitt Romney has stated that he only supports partnership agreements for gay couples and not gay marriage, but what Romney actually did while governor of Massachusetts suggests otherwise.  In the WorldNetDaily article referenced above, Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt detailed how Mitt Romney aggressively implemented gay marriage in the state of Massachusetts….

When the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decided in 2003 to recognize homosexual “marriage,” ignoring the voters and the Constitution, the court admitted it did not have power to issue licenses or force participation by justices of the peace to solemnize the weddings. But as governor, Romney didn’t wait for the legislature to act, he just ordered the marriage licenses and weddings to go forward, all by himself. Earlier this month, Romney said in New Hampshire, “What I would support [nationwide] is letting people who are of the same gender form – if you will – partnership agreements.”

#14 As late as 2007, Mitt Romney was a member of the Republican Main Street Partnership.  The following is what romneyexposed.com says about this organization….

They often work in conjunction with the pro-abortion group, Republicans for Choice, and the Republican homosexual group, the Log Cabin Club.  They also opposed the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and set up a 527 campaign committee that received funding from far left funder George Soros.

#15 According to the Huffington Post, Mitt Romney has raised more money from lobbyists than all of the other Republican candidates combined.

So if Mitt Romney becomes president, who do you think he is going to listen to – the American people or the lobbyists?

#16 Mitt Romney is a big time Wall Street insider.  It is estimated that Romney has a personal fortune of approximately a quarter of a billion dollars, and Wall Street money is being absolutely showered on his campaign.

In a recent article entitled “The Big Wall Street Banks Are Already Trying To Buy The 2012 Election“, I detailed how numbers compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics show that Mitt Romney is getting far more money from the “too big to fail” Wall Street banks than all of the other Republican candidates combined.  The following is an excerpt from that article that shows how much money employees of those banks (and their wives) have been giving to Romney so far this year….


Goldman Sachs

Mitt Romney: $352,200
Barack Obama: $49,124
Tim Pawlenty: $25,000
Jon Huntsman: $6,750
Rick Perry: $5,500
Ron Paul: $2,500

Morgan Stanley

Mitt Romney: $184,800

Thad McCotter: $2,000
Herman Cain: $750
Michele Bachmann: $500

JPMorgan Chase

Mitt Romney: $107,250
Barack Obama: $38,039
Rick Perry: $27,050
Tim Pawlenty: $16,750
Jon Huntsman: $7,500
Ron Paul: $5,451


Mitt Romney: $56,550
Barack Obama: $36,887
Tim Pawlenty: $5,300
Rick Perry: $3,000
Herman Cain: $1,465
Michele Bachmann: $1,000
Ron Paul: $702

As you can see, no other Republican candidate even comes close to Romney at any of these big Wall Street banks.

In fact, of the candidates that are left in the Republican race, Mitt Romney has raised 13 times as much Wall Street money as anyone else has.

The following are the overall donation numbers from employees of the big Wall Street banks and their wives….

Mitt Romney: $813,300
Barack Obama: $198,874
Tim Pawlenty: $101,515
Rick Perry: $58,900
Jon Huntsman: $28,250
Ron Paul: $13,104
Herman Cain: $2,715
Michelle Bachmann: $1,500
Newt Gingrich: $1,250

These numbers paint a very disturbing picture.  Even though Romney’s poll numbers are in the mid to low 20s most of the time, employees of the big Wall Street banks gave him $813,300 during the first 9 months of this year and they only gave $105,719 to the rest of the Republican candidates combined.


It is quite obvious that the “establishment” is in love with Mitt Romney.

But if the American people elect Mitt Romney, they will get someone who believes in big spending, big government, bank bailouts, health care mandates, climate change legislation, liberal judges, gun control laws, amnesty for illegal aliens and making things as comfortable for the fatcats on Wall Street as possible.

Yes, Barack Obama has been absolutely horrible, but the answer is most definitely not Mitt Romney.

Look, the truth is that another four years of Barack Obama would be a complete and total nightmare.

But so would four years of Mitt Romney.

America deserves better than the “lesser of two evils”.

Unfortunately, the American people have been dead asleep and have been sending incompetents, con men and charlatans to Washington D.C. for decades.

Right now it looks like the Republican Party is going to nominate yet another establishment “politician” in 2012.

Hopefully people will wake up to the truth about Mitt Romney while there is still time.

  • Freedom!!!

    I belong to the same religion that Mitt Romney does, but there is nothing in this universe that would ever compel me to vote for him…not if they held hot brands to my feet. The same goes for Cain, Bachmann, and Perry. What a bunch of losers, and I am definitely not voting democratic.

    It just shows me that if Ron Paul cannot get on the ballot that we need to come together as a nation and all do a write-in ballot since neither party can come up with anybody I would consider fit for the job. Ron Paul couldn’t be worse than any of the jokes that have been elected president for the last several decades.

    • mark

      Ron Paul or Gary Johnson would be a great choice, but it will not happen. We know what needs to be done for our country. Huge cuts in spending and lower taxes. Since our GDP is based on such high government spending, the economy would tank for some years as we pay off our debt. Does anyone really think that American voters are going to go through the pain by their own choice? We have forty something precent recieving tax payer funds each month. We will only go through the pain when the rest of the world demands such. I used to think that we could fix this mess if we would only try. Those in power know that riots would break out everywhere and could not be controled. I do not think that most debt will be repaid and haircuts or printing of more money will be the norm. Those that rule at the moment will not be the ones with the hair cut. We are all screwed by what will come. Who knows when it will take place. I would rather have a guy like Romney in power that Obama. He will at least extend the time that most of the readers here can prepare for what is coming. He does not seem to be a marxist like many that Obama surounds himself with. At least he seems to understand how business works. The only thing Obama knows is how to run a protest group, play golf or keep score of a basketball game. Oh yes , and read a speech that someone else wrote. The choice of judges would be better than Obama’s. Obama will take us down the road to a police state or world government if he has another four years. If we keep tearing up Romney so much, Obama will there to finsih what he has started and that will be the end of what freedom we have left.

      • Mac

        Puleeeeeez! Will you strange people stop looking at Ron Paul and saying, “It will not happen!” What are you? – FOX News plants? For Pete’s sake direct your energies into a VERY REALISTIC effort to get RP elected instead of this gloomy acceptance of the status quo, which is exactly what you are going to get with ANY of the other candidates. America IS waking up, son, so get with it. Vote Ron Paul, and however it turns out, you won’t have to be ashamed of how you voted.

    • As am I, brother. I feel the same way.

  • Highspeedloafer

    I doubt that anyone who reads this blog regularly would ever vote for Romney. People who come here know the problems that exist in this country. There just aren’t enough of us.

  • Aurelius 7

    You have a Communist in the White House. I don’t care what the media says he is. I don’t care what he looks like. I don’t care if he’s personally a nice guy. I’m sure Lenin had friends. I’m sure Trotsky had friends. I’m sure Trotsky had children. I’m sure Lenin had children. I’m sure that they all smiled to the masses. At the end of the day they killed people, in the masses… in the great numbers. We have a communist in the White House.

    The Republicans will not win the next 2012 election. The elections are fixed, just as the 1918 and 1919 World Series had been fixed in advance by Arnold Rothstein. The Republicans have already thrown the election just like last time. The reason they threw it away last time by bringing up that doofus McCain to lose it was because they had eight years of Bush. They sacked the Treasury through the war in Iraq and through the contracting process. They sacked the Treasury by expanding government beyond that of the previous four administrations (speaking on Republicans, not Democrats). They figured you had enough of them and it was time for a Democrat. If the Democrats had run just “another” Democrat, such as Hillary Clinton or another party apparatchik, you probably would’ve not gone out and voted. Then the old hack McCain might’ve won.

    So, instead they go and pick someone no one had ever heard of or saw before – and he was black. And he was young. And he was charismatic. And he had a beautiful family. And you fell for it. You took it hook, line and sinker. Little did you know that you’d have trickle-up poverty and trickle-down degeneracy. But that’s what you have right now.

    And guess what? Romney is the new McCain for 2012. He will be the one to push Cain or anyone who isn’t part of the apparatchik out.

    It’s a big game, people. You get to go out and vote every two years and have your fun thinking you will make a difference amongst these thieves and criminals. You live in an oligarchy called the USSA. If you’re still thinking it’s a left-vs-right political spectrum, you’re just another useful idiot who’s behind the curve and unwittingly helping the country regress towards a Soviet state.

    • David

      Well said, Aurelius. Yes, the fix is in, and the dredging up of old, false allegations against Herman Cain likely did NOT come from liberals, but from someone in the GOP intent on having Romney as the nominee. The liberal rag Politico was simply used as a tool because they are so eager to print anything negative about a conservative.

      • Aurelius 7

        The Democrats have been fully infiltrated and are now owned by communist Soros, lock, stock and barrel. The GOP, on the other hand, has been infiltrated enough to stem the tide of true conservatives who can fix things. This is what you see now with the internal party struggle. There’s enough power from the “progressive” apparatchik to keep Cain down — e.g. Gingrich/McCain/Romney/Perry/Karl Rove (strategist). Combine that with the bought-out media to help get Obama reelected and we’ll have to see how well Cain can weather the storm. You know he’s the right one since he’s the most vilified with trumped up charges (i.e. sexual harassment), not just because “he’s the front-runner.”

        • Gay Veteran

          Republicans and Democrats are two sides of the same coin. Wake up.

          • Aurelius 7

            You really didn’t bother to read my first post did you, smart guy? I woke up before you. Wake up yourself.

    • Not so Aurelius. You have forgotten one thing, the people, as manifested in the Tea Party movement, the core of this Nation is still good, conservative, faith based, and bound to a constitutional America. And lest you forget the prophecies from our latter day prophets, that the Elders of Israel (Church members and also conservative non-members) will restore the Constitution. That day is soon approaching. Be optimistic. God is at the helm, and will not allow this Nation to become a socialist Nation.

      • Aurelius 7

        Not so chris, but thanks for the enlightenment. The Tea party movement, lets face it, has run out of steam and is no longer covered by the one-sided media who hails and portrays the Communist-Marxist “Occupy” movement that is subverting the country as the true movement. I’m optimistic only in the sense that it’s only God that can save us, not this country or anyone else in it. If one is to believe God can bless a nation, one must also believe God can punish a nation. Therefore, I’m sorry, but he will allow this nation to be socialist… or worse. If you’re in the Word, you will surely have heard that “This generation shall come to pass.” I wish it was the other way around for this country and world, but I didn’t make the rules.

  • William

    Yes, Paul is the ONLY Republican worthy of the White House. But, the SYSTEM will do ANYTHING to keep him out of the Presidency. JFK found out what happens when the FED is challenged.

    When I was in college, I learned that you will never change anything by electing new politicians.

  • gary2

    Thanks for finally criticizing a republican. There is plenty of material available for this :)

    I think it is so funny and ironic that the republicans candidate for the president is the same guy who invented obamacare. All those stupid tea baggers in the town hall meetings in 2009 with their signs saying keep gov hands off my medicare etc.

    If this does not prove the system is broken then nothing will. I actually agree that this goof would not be too different than Obama. Main difference is that in his prior life he downsized thousands of workers and Obama did not.

    • Kevin


      Personally I think Romney is a phony but to state he downsized workers and Obama did not is a pretty lame defense. Obama never had a business to downsize however the recent trade agreements being pushed by Obama will facilitate more downsizing.

      When it comes to policies and actions regarding Free Trade both are the same.

      You can’t take sides with my guy is better then your guy when for all practical purposes they are the same. The longer Obama is in office the more he appears to be GW Bush.

  • WM

    Michael, another great article, one that I can relate to to a certain point. I moved from Mass. to CT about 7 years ago, but my parents still reside in Mass. Much is true here as far as what I know about Romney and Mass. politics. The homosexual agenda is very powerful there. The state in general is very liberal, even in the way it treats its criminals and victims of crimes, getting on ssi or welfare seems pretty easy, and like most places the infastructure is literally crumbling. And don’t forget, they are still paying for the big dig…. It really is disgusting and I am so glad I am not living in that state anymore. Connecticut is a slight improvement, but I am really hoping to relocate to a more conservative state.
    Anyway, I don’t think I would ever vote for anyone who is or been governor of Mass. no matter how convincing they are. The state politics are just too liberal, and I fear this kind of “world view” will remain in the White house.

    Have you Yankazoids never considered that the reason you’re country’s going down the toilet is that you’re all completely insane? Science, family planning, gun control, medical care… none of these things are particularly controversial in the rest of the civilised world. You’re right on the bailouts, though.

    • Jeremy

      Would this “civilised world” be Europe, where at least five nations have debt-GDP ratios over 100%, and are on the brink of default? Whose relevance globally has dropped like a rock in the last 70 years, whose countries (aside from the UK and Poland) had any balls to stand up to the fascism of Germany and Italy in the 1930s? Whose churches are desecrated as night clubs? Countries which offer no opportunity for the young.

      Yeah, sign me up to the countries responsible for such “civilised” policies.

      • Anonymous coward

        Europe and South-East Asia, certainly… you know, the civilised, rich countries of the world that know we have to lead by example.

        Oh sorry, America these days is neither civilised nor rich!

        But you’re right – Americans don’t “desecrate” churches by turning them into night clubs – they just go right ahead and fire bomb them for the KKK, don’t they? Still, at least they believed in God while they were alive! And we all know how America offers great opportunities for the young – opportunities to work at McDonald’s or get shot by gangsters, mostly…

Enjoy Sharia law, none of you effeminate panty-wastes in Europe are going to stand up for your cultural histories. I recently read an interesting article about the Islamic explosion in Europe and Asia–it was written in a Science journal of all things. One logarithmic function showed how France ( through immigration and being outbirthed 6:1) will be majority Muslim by 2025–and Britain and the Netherlands are not far behind. Fools like you don’t see the inter-connectedness of it all. Feminizing the men, lowering the regard for human life, entitlement mentality, government as provider..it will all lead to the end of Western Civilization. America may well be on its way but we’ll last a few decades longer than Europe.

      Civilized? HAH!

      I’ll keep that in mind the next time I read about, oh, Southeast Asia’s Cambodian Killing Fields, the Viet Cong, North Korea’s slave-state, China’s endless human rights abuses, or Singapore’s torture of people who chew gum in public. I won’t even touch Africa.

      As for Europe, that great bastion of humanity and civil rights, I guess I can pick from Stalin’s purges, Hitler’s death camps, Yugoslavia’s genocidal civil war, France’s friendly relations with the Algerians, Italy’s treatment of the Ethiopians, Turkey’s massacre of the Armenians, Belarus’s current mass arrests of protesters (even clapping in Belarus is considered subversive), East Germany’s murderous wall, the Russian FSB’s recent foreign assassinations, the stories of Belgian paras on UN peacekeeper duty torturing Somali refugees, UN officials accused of wide-spread rape, or the stories of British atrocities in Iraq? Just to pile on the Brits, let’s not forget their use of concentration camps in the Boer War and their machinegunning of unarmed Indians during the Jallianwalla Massacre. Oh, and their bizarre experiments with radiation on their own unsuspecting citizens during the 1950s and 1960s.

      Civilized? HAH!

  • MountainHome

    Now this is the precise information that needs to get out to the voters. There is no (or little) between Mitt and Obama and I’m not sure why Cain or Paul are not using this information in the debates.



    This is why I love taking your articles apart. You make it so easy to do. Another anti-abortion anti-gay marriage hit piece for the most part. You touched on his wall street ties which was good, but you had no information on his foreign policy platform. Remember his famous, I’ll double Gitmo proclamation? I literally split my sides laughing. As for the judges he selects, do you serioulsy think that a Republican majority or minority (at least 41 votes) Senate would even contemplate allowing “liberal” judges to take the bench? Even you have to reexamine that cooky idea. But even so that is not to say that the rightwing lunatic republican judges that gave us Bush v Gore (one time deal with no lasting precedent if one can believe that) and Citizens United where your much lauded corporations can bribe politicians with as much cash as they can muster, well, we can’t have “liberal” judges in place to stop this bribery scheme for amerika would simply fall apart if the scheme of bribes and payoffs were somehow ended. But I digress.


    In staying true to form to your rightwing ideological roots, in the end, with or without really knowing it, you make the case for Slic Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, or some other wall street city slicker being President. Again, this obsession with social issues as a wedge to divide and conquer the people and getting white southerners to vote against their own economic and social interests merely underscores why, in the grand scheme of things, the amerikan empire is dying, and why it deserves to die.

      Well it took a long time, but it looks like the ranting nut in the above ’50s advertorial finally got his way. I hope you loons are happy now that you’ve ruined a great country that everyone used to look up to; I suppose we’re going to be next.

      That’s a great video, Coward, but you’re wrong about who the problem is. Who is busy trying to separate and drive wedges between people? The Left. Wasn’t it Obama who told Hispanics to vote for him and help his and their enemies?! Who calls their fellow Americans enemies?!?!
      Didn’t Obama belittle Americans for clinging to their guns and their religion and their hatred of minorities?

      Ayn Rand made an even more poignant statement about minorities: “The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.”

      Now the libs are telling us about a new minority we need to hate: the wealthy. Doesn’t this 99% malarkey sound similar to the story told in the video you linked??? Doesn’t chanting revenge against the so-called 1% meet the standard of division as described by the Hungarian professor in the video?

      Check your preconceptions-just who is trying to drive wedges???

      • Guido

        Sorry, I mis-typed. Didn’t Obama call on Hispanics to vote for him and help punish his and their enemies? In fact, he did. He most definitely split Hispanics off from the rest of us and implied they have enemies to punish. Scary stuff!

        • Yes, and Obama’s administration has deported nearly 400-thousand people in just one year.

          Regarding the Occupy movement, the problem is not some people making more money than others. The problem is that the money is used to buy lawmakers. I don’t personally care if someone’s filthy rich. I do care if these people are buying my Congressmen.

  • KnightOwl

    Well Hell….I would vote for a Cocker Spaniel before voting for Barry Obama….My choice for president a year out is 1; Ron Paul, 2 Herman Cain, 3; Newt Gingrich…..After those 3 and none are perfect, I would probably vote 3rd party….
    I refuse to sanction an establishment candidate….

    I think if the RNC forces a Romney nomination after nominating GWB, and then Johnny McVain I will be forever done with Repubs on a national scale

  • Cracka

    Funny you say “employees of these banks (and their wives)”

    Typical sexism from “end of the american dream” conservatives

    • JR

      Nice post. How much is BowelMoveOn.org paying you to post here???

      Just a note to you ignorant leftist/feminists: If you knew the first thing about linguistics, using the pronoun “he” to stand for both sexes is, per famed female linguist Robin Lakoff, fully acceptable, just as using “she” to stand for a country doesn’t mean only females are citizens of that country.

      You feminists are truly vile. Pair this with your ignorance, and it’s a great pair. (By the way, that is “irony,” in case you didn’t get it.)

      Well, guys, signing off. Oh! Sorry! “Guys” is sexist too.

      • Guido

        Very good, Sir!

  • I grew up Mormon and the entire world needs to realize the very satanic blood oaths taken by all Mormons in the LDS Temples which violates the teachings of Jesus Christ to NEVER swear an oath. This oath (along with a penalty of slitting the throat, cutting out the heart and intestines ~ taken out in 1990 but still “assumed” today) to “suffer my life to be taken” is an oath of loyalty to the LDS church and NOT to God or country! I would never vote for any Mormon for President, especially Romney who is a part of the Obama NWO agenda to take down America from within for a one world order through control and economic tyranny by the “elite”. The LDS not-“saints” are waking up to the evils of their religion and leaving in droves or staying and helping to clean up the mess of their religion by getting back to the original Book of Mormon before it was Masonically altered.

    • Freedom!!!

      I feel bad that you obviously had a very difficult time growing up, but what you have written is NOT the truth (the only exception having to do with who you vote for — which is none of my business). You actually sound like you’ve gone off the deep end.

      The issue of whether Romney is Mormon or not has not a single thing to do with whether he qualifies for the job of POTUS. The bottom line is, as far I can tell, he is wishy-washy on the issues and so you can’t tell where the truth is and whether he will stand by what he says, not to mention that his public service so far has NOT enriched the lives of his voters. That is the only reason I would not vote for him.

      And I will NOT vote for him just because he stinks less than the others.

      • callmecordelia1

        Thank you Freedom. Your reply is a lot nicer than mine was going to be. :)

        I’m not a fan of Romney either. I don’t know who I’ll vote for in the election, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be him.

    • Anonymous

      I have been reading this site for a long time and agree with part of what you have said. However, I also will use your same stance on Mormonism and Christianity and others here who follow Christianity. The most moral, ethical and best educators I have ever known are either agnostic or atheist. I have meet some very large Jewish individuals who have described some things with me. I have also met someone, who has talked with the current president, who is a nonbeliever. I have always been a progressive and have known some of my education and thinking have been wrong yet education is a life long process.

      We are in a country where education ranks low and money ranks high. I know colleges which have scaled grades and a few students who wrote papers at the level of a junior high student who have been awarded masters degrees by the colleges.

    • Gay Veteran

      wow, can I comment on the evils of more “mainstream” Christian sects?

  • Dr. Chicago

    Mitt Romney is the Republican version of John Kerry. They are plastic poster boys of their party. I tend to vote republican but if Mitt Kerry, oops, Romney wins the nomination, I will vote for the best candidate which will hopefully be a good third party. Between Obaman and Romney is not really a choice at all but more of the same.

  • mondobeyondo

    Herman Cain!
    Yes, he’s insane!
    He has no brain!
    And that, folks, is why I have no chance of being a rap artist.

    • mondobeyondo

      Eminem and 50 Cent… your jobs are safe.
      Yes, even you, Flavor Flav.

  • They also forgot one huge one, his cousin was the prophet of the mormon church, as in the leader, the guy that claims to have a direct line to god and new revelation. I’m not a huge fan of even getting near violating the Establishment Clause.

  • mondobeyondo

    Mitt Romney, he’s our man! If he can’t do it… um, I forgot the rest. Darn! Help me out, people!

    Take your pick:

    1) Jar Jar Binks can!
    2) Michele Bachmann can!
    3) Barack H. Obama can!
    4) A four legged rodent can!
    5) Is John McCain running in 2016?

    • kyle

      Obama is our man DRRRRRRRR

  • Jared

    Lies Schu??? Huh? Those are facts my friend. Are those $ figures regarding who has donated to his campaign innuendo?? Barack Obama had that same type of lopsided financial backing during the last run. I am a member of the same Church as Mitt. Yet he is so flawed, so ignorant, so awful in his policies and principles (or lack thereof) and it shows in his ACTIONS. There is no way in a million years I could ever vote for someone who has done the things he has done and supported the things he has supported. His political actions and principles violate everything that Latter-Day Saints should stand for. Pre-emptive wars of aggression, supporting the robbing of American citizens through unconstitutional bailouts, etc You should REALLY order yourself a book entitled Latter-Day Liberty which comes out Dec. 8th. I’ve read the 1st free chapter online, and there are numerous glowing endorsments of it. As a Latter-Day Saint you should be 1st and foremost supportive of the principle of liberty and agency. As a general rule of thumb, see who the establishment is pushing and run hard the other way. Mitt Romney has by FAR the most corporate funding, given the most debate talk time, etc. That alone spells trouble.

  • JR

    Excellent. I forwarded the link for this on to eveyrone I knew. I think everyone should. Very, very informative

    • Michael

      Thank you. Romney would be an absolute disaster as president. We certainly don’t need yet another disastrous presidency.

    ************ Romney! ************* Obanmaa! When do you assholes realize that we are all ************* with thje ********* heads that kead the 2 parties. America is lost and we have no way back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • susie

    I like Mitt..he’s going to be a great president.He will turn this country around.You can always vote for Obama again and keep living in a nightmare..I tired of Obama and his tired promises.He can’t run a country! If Mitt is the nominee..we will be on our way to greatest once again!God will Bless America!!

    • Stacy

      Romney supporters really need to do your research on him! With him in office, we are headed straight off the cliff we are hanging on with Obama there. Are you just not hearing and seeing what is right in front of you?

      • kyle


    • Guido

      Been into trolling for flames long, Susie?

      If you’re a real Mitt supporter-how do you explain the facts above? Did you even read them?

    • kyle

      Than why are you on a mitt romany sucks website you are DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    i,m praying for ron paul

    • kyle


  • Guido

    I’ve said it in a previous post-that man creeps me out. There is something very disturbing about Romney and I can’t really explain it.

    I’ve got a pretty well-developed sense for people. If I meet someone, I usually know fairly quickly if they’re going to be OK. When my gut tells me there’s something wrong about someone, it’s usually right. It just knows.

    Whenever I see Romney, I just feel like there’s something really wrong about him. I’m not a touchy-feely kind of guy, but I really do feel something bad coming off the guy. It’s as simple as that.

    I know it’s irrational and it makes no sense, and there isn’t one iota of proof to support it- but I wonder if other people feel it, too? He certainly doesn’t seem to connect well with most people. His polls hold flat at about 20%. I think a lot of people are looking for anyone but Romney to fill the role. The powers that be may like him, but your average American doesn’t seem to.

    I prefer pretty much any other candidate to him-except Perry. I feel like Romney and Perry are pretty much the same thing package with a different bow on it.

    I fear Romney would turn out to be pretty much Bush, which means pretty much Obama, all over again. That’s not something I need. In fact, I’m seriously considering voting for Obama if they push Romney, since a vote for one is pretty much a vote for the other. At least there are no illusions about what Obama represents. I don’t want Obama to win, but I do not see Romney as any improvement.

    Thanks for the great list, Michael. I’ve already forwarded it to my friends and family.

  • Romney reminds me of a snake oil salesman – I
    am glad r. viguerie opposes such a nomination – If
    he is the nominee, no one in my family will vote for him – we prefer the constitution party anyhow
    or ron paul – if you want to read a newspaper that
    is conservative and one of its kind, read eauclairejournal.com – one of its latest articles
    is Its Romney’s Record, Not His Religion at http://www.eauclairejournal.com/news/story.phtml/0A81D99C/national/its_romneys_record_not_his_religion/ – if you can’t get into the whole article, my apologies – let me know and i will have it sent to you in complete form –

  • Manny

    More reasons true “conservatives” cannot possibly support Romney – the man who included Planned Parenthood on the RomneyCare advisory board, and included $50 copay abortions. The Governor who violated the Mass. Constitution when he implemented “gay marriage” without legislative authorization. The Governor who kowtowed to an illegitimate Court ruling, against the clear separation of powers laid out in the Mass. Constitution. The Governor who supported Kevin Jennings’ “Safe Schools” programs in the Mass. schools, had his own “Governor’s Commission on Gay & Lesbian Youth” and even issued proclamations for GLBT Youth Pride events.

    Lets stop blaming Obama and put the blame where it should be On both Houses Obama is taking all the heat,because he is the top guy. You should all remember he was given this mess when he took office That lieing Bush bunch DID THIS TO US He is still trying to clean up that mess.Romney is just another Bush/Chaney lier.And yes I will vote Obama when the time comes. Give him a chance. Like my Father always said. Put a Republican in Office and we are all dead

    • shawn

      You do got a good point. Where are all the smart people at that know this stuff.

      • kyle


  • I am from Mass and believe me if Romney becomes our next President this country is in trouble and will definitely start going in the opposite direction for the middle class.

    At least we are adding jobs instead of losing them now. With Romney we will be losing them again. That is the reason why he was only a one term governor in Mass. We got rid of his azz.

    Romney will represent the 1 percent and to hell with the rest of America. People need to wake up and see who really is trying to help the majority of Americans stir this country in the right direction, which is adding jobs instead of removing jobs from our country.

  • DBY

    Just stumbled onto this site. There seems to be a strangely suspicious trend to find the 16, or 27 or 12 or 30 reasons why one of the republican candidates would be disaster for this country. How about a 1,000 point write-up about why Obama “IS” a disaster for the country, and why liberal ideology is responsible for the death of over 1 billion human beings over the past 50 years, usually 50 to 100 million at a time. Hint Banning DDT and Pol Pot. I’m sure you can come up with the rest.

    • Michael


      If you check out the rest of the articles on this site you will see that I am very, very, very hard on Obama.


  • DBY

    I saw some of those. Didn’t see a 30 point synopsis though…. Not that I’m a big republican fan, I just see a lot of “he sucks”, “she sucks”. I see a lot of problems, but few targeted solutions. Just struck me as a lot of complaigning (and not simply by the moderator), with few constructive or positive ideas or dialog. Interesting, non the less.

  • Politics is screwed and voting isn’t going to change anything. We’ve all been voting for years and look at the results! What’s the definition of insanity?

    This is why people are demonstrating, because there’s nothing left to do. We have got to Occupy.

  • nothing like a rich ol man spending his money the poor will always have their hand out

  • ronpaulsupporter

    Where is Ron Paul in all of this!? My voting still goes to him.

  • Rod Baker

    Well here we are 40- days from election. I believe this article is as accurate now as when it was written. It is a sad position we of this country find ourselves in. Obama or Romney. What are we to do? The only thing I know for sure is if Obama is elected again, Then I guess the majority of the people will get what they want. They will surely get what they asked for and they deserve what they get. It is just unfortunate they rest of us will have to suffer as well. I sure wish Dr. Ron Paul could have been more popular.
