Mitt Romney, the Etch-A-Sketch Candidate

Mitt Romney's "belief" system
By the Left Coast Rebel
  

Read this and weep. How could any serious right-of-center American desperately concerned with the situation this nation has been put in support this man, even begrudgingly?

They don't call it the Stupid Party for nothin'.

PS: You will note that I added a blank Etch a Sketch image to this post. It is no coincidence that it is blank.

More from the foaming-at-the-mouth libtards at Think Progress...



Appearing on CNN this morning, Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom was asked if he’s concerned that Romney may alienate general election voters with some of the hard-right positions he’s taken during the primary to appeal to conservatives. Fehrnstrom brushed this concern off:
HOST: Is there a concern that Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election?
FEHRNSTROM: Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all of over again.

How dandy! From a pretzel to an Etch a Sketch. Considering this tasty little revelation hails from none other than Mitt's Communication Director, I'd take it as gospel, from the horse's mouth to God's ear.

Do you get it though, folks? Has it sunk in yet?

You're being duped again by the statist establishment of the Republican party and Mitt Romney's Communications Director Eric Fehrnstorm's little admission is nothing more than an honest moment from the ROMNEY! campaign. If he "wins" the nomination, Mitt Romney will cast aside anything and everything even remotely limited government.

Romney's a liberal-statist. Any conservative, or "right-wing" posturing on his part, as Think Progress calls it, is just that: pre-election posturing. Mitt Romney will never, ever, ever institute anything remotely similar to the Reagan Agenda.

Tea Partiers and libertarians will be relegated to... the backseat put out to pasture.

It's just the way it is, mark my words and the only way this is certain to happen is if good people acquiesce to the Republican party's demands and do nothing.

Updated: Well golly gee.

Updated x2: Dean noted in the comments here that Rush Limbaugh is apparently beginning to toe the establishment b.s. line that Romney is a conservative. Bungalow Bill has more on that sad spectacle. Ratings, Rush, aren't to be found in following the corrupt, statist, GOP cocktail-crowd establishment off the Mittens cliff to nowhere.

  1. Even Rush Limbaugh seems to be willing to suspend his belief and accept that maybe, hopefully, Mitt Romney means what he is saying now.

    I weep for America. The non-movement conservatives seem to be willing to replace Obama with Obama-lite.

    1. I agree, Dean. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought conservatives -- many of them my own family -- would fall for this. It is horrifying.

    1. Hack: Paul Ryan has a lot of good ideas; I definitely could have supported him. BTW, I'm going to Costa Rica in June :) (saw your post)

  3. If Rush even hints at endorsing Romney, it will be a done deal, boys.

    If Romney is a Conservative, then...oh forget it. The GOP is not the solution. Romney is not the solution. Santorum, oh please. Gingrich might do a Clinton in the Oval Office with some intern, and Ron Paul, God bles him, has the scariest eyebrows in existence and honestly is no spring chicken any,longer. Besides, I do drink the kool-aid that says Ron Paul and Romney got a little something goin' on.

    I'm looking ahead to 2016, friends. This election year is truly "Damned if you do and Damned if you don't." And so it goes....

  4. I agree, RomneyCare is not going to fix anything. If we don't have a Senate of 60, the President will need to lead the repeal of ObamaCare. Romney will not be that leader.

    1. Thanks, Charles, as you know that is the most pressing short-term issue of our time and RomneyCare fails. In fact, the chance of RomneyCare repealing ObamaCare is up there with the chane of Obama repealing ObamaCare, given he has a second term.

  5. I'm just guessing but... If there are libtards it stands to reason there are also contards. Given the realities of the last 11 years the truth of this should be obvious.

    Or as twoguys2012 said "The GOP is not the solution." But what does this classical liberal and independent thinker know? Other than the definition of insanity...
