Romney just made a turncoat decision that could cost him the nomination

http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/07/romney-c...

He is backing off obamacare , in the middle of his campaign for president. If anything this confirms 1 thing , and that is he has no real intention of repealing it when elected. Had he been serious he would still be fighting this tooth and nail.

Ron paul people need to take this information to the convention with them and convert the hardcore republicans by making them understand he is actually a fake and voting for him is voting for obamacare and future growth of government.

I agree - The lying Romney said THIS in the republican debates:

He said "I WILL repeal Obamacare"

Immediately after Roberts and the liberals on the Not-so-Supreme Court decided it WAS constitutional, Romney gave a speech with a little different wording. He sid:

I will WORK to repeal and REPLACE Obamacare.

I thought to myself; What the hell does THAT mean?

Replace it with WHAT???

Then Romney went on to basically agree with many aspects of Obamacare.

Romney twists more words than anyone I've seen before.

I trust him as far as I can throw him.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

The GOP was banking

The GOP was banking on the supreme court ruling in there favor. They never thought in a million years Romney would have to be debating on Obamneycare. He thought he could talk just on the economy and would be a slam dunk. Now the GOP is scrambling to figure out how to convince the American people to vote for him.

I think at the GOP convention it will be a war on the floor. Obama has Romney on the ropes before the convention. I think when they see the poor polling the next month. It will convince the delegates to jump ship. Grab a beer and enjoy the show. This could be a blessing in disguise.

let's all pretend we're extremely shocked about this. Prepare to gasp in 3...2...1... OMG!

But yeah, hopefully this'll show some of the folks that somehow support him what they're buying into. Wait... that ain't right. He has no small donors.

Next he will say

he will Audit the Fed and return the dollar to a gold standard. what a joke

He's afraid

He's afraid he will actually win, then he will be president while the whole country goes down in flames because of the economic collapse that is unstoppable.
You need to be brave and make hard decisions, and tell and explain people why it happened.
The only guy up to the task is Ron, all others will just be unable to do anything right, because they have no clue what is wrong in the first place.

Good things come to those who wait.

Once again Liberty Lovers, all you have to do is be patient and eventually these establishment hypocrites will dig their own graves. I wonder what acting casting agency they pulled Eric Fehrnstrom from. He sure does look the part but he doesn't even commit fully to the lines he's memorized.

He's just trying to save his ass

Long before the MittWit started saying he would repeal ObamaCare if he got elected, the closest he came to that position was to say that it needed to be "replaced" with something else. What that was, he never really said, other than to imply that something more akin to what MA has would be better. Where he sees a difference is beyond me.

But the reason for his recent silence is obvious to me...if he speaks out against ObamaCare, Barry and his gang will run him through the ringer on it---RomneyCare was their model, what's good for MA isn't good for USA?, etc, etc. He thinks by condoning ObamaCare, it will cease being a campaign issue for either side, and thus, won't be brought up. I guess he truly is a MittWit. If he were to get the nomination, then he's going to have to finally make a stand, as any Presidential debate is sure to include this issue as a major focal point. Either he stands up against it and takes the barrage of endless, inescapable crap that Barry and the boys will surely throw at him, making him look like the biggest fool in the world, losing him the election. Or he caves and supports it, hoping to marginalize its importance so he can stick to the economic issues he wants people to believe he has the answers for. In the latter case, he will have disenfranchised every supporter he has, leaving them with no place to turn. (I'm sure that most Romney supporters are hardline GOPers who will not vote outside of party lines, unfortunately). Any fence-sitters leaning toward Romney will surely bail, once again losing him the election.

Now that he has been proclaimed the presumptive nominee, he figures he can run silent and deep on the issue, so as not to cause any unnecessary waves amongst GOPers before the convention. What we need to do is convince Romney delegates that the scenario above will play out one way or the other if he is nominated, and give them a reason to change their loyalty while still being able to vote their party. And obviously, this needs to be done before the convention. This development is ammo folks...LOAD UP!

The lesser of two evils is still an evil.

It was obvious that as soon

It was obvious that as soon as Romney felt he had the nomination sewn up he'd turn back to Massachusetts Mitt. He wasn't compared to an Etch a Sketch for nothing. The man has no core principles at all, he is just an empty suit who says whatever it takes to win an election.

I guess he got bored and changed back to old Mitt

who knows he could be developing a newer version of himself, give him time, I am sure he will come up with something, it must be hard to maintain all those Mitt varieties he's created lol

Tell every DELEGATE about this

This is the event that changes Delegates from Romney supporters into Paul supporters.
This is Mitt Romney's extinction level event.

Romney = McCain He is the

Romney = McCain

He is the fall guy. Seriously.

Yeah, if I were a true

Yeah, if I were a true conspiracy theorist I would conclude that the Democrats control the Republican leadership. What else would explain how we always get useless Republican candidates for president who can't win the general election?

Unfortunately it won't...

... cost him the nomination.
(If it did, then Ron Paul would become the nominee, and the insiders would never let that happen.)

It might cost him the general election, however. In that case our position in 2014 and 2016 becomes MUCH stronger.

******************************
The Virtual Conspiracy

You never know...

A lot of delegates could change their minds about voting for Romney at the convention because of this, especially Gingrich/Santorum delegates, but some Romney delegates as well.

The insiders might not willingly let it happen, but they're not omnipotent. They're beatable.

Wow, they are now clammoring for a Palin/West ticket

Because they want LIBERTY and PROPERTY RIGHTS and someone who will SAY WHAT THEY ARE THINKING.

*facepalm*

They already HAVE the nominee they want. He is still in the race with hundreds of delegates and they just can't see it.

I imagine for people who support Romney its like

eating a cold bowl of Mashed Potatoes. As bland as possible. For us Mitt Romney is like eating a bannanna that you know is rotten under that peel.

Ron Paul is like Ice Cream--The Emperor of Ice Cream! a poem by Wallace Stevens

Well...it won't be this that "costs him the nomination"

Romney has 0 chance. We all know this/have known this. The only one who has a shot vs. the incumbent is Ron Paul. So..go delegates!

But yeah, pretty pathetic move from the Romney campaign.

pathetic!

where's Mittens Romney on Fast and Furious? He's a joke, and at this rate, he'll lose. And Republicans voted for him because he was the safe bet to beat Obama? Way too SAFE!

The fact that Republicans across this country voted for that man tells us all we need to know- they will never endorse/be won over by our platform. They didnt learn a thing from the tea party uprising, Obamacare, and the bank bailouts, and the GOP is still more the Party of George W. Bush than Ron Paul.

This was a cold

glass of water in the face of the so called conservatives. A microcosm of this was at my state convention (Michigan) people who supported the establishment were slowly being converted by the end of the convention not realizing they were controlled all along.

I'm wondering at what point Romney will officially endorse Obama.

He will graciously concede...

..when his masters tell him to. Until then he will continue to pretend to oppose Federal Romneycare.

Yeah I know

I love this. Hands off Romneycare LoL.

This is the feeling I get

This is the feeling I get especially since yesterday when his campaign sided with the Democrats on the mandate being a penalty not a tax. As far as domestic policy goes, he doesn't have much to go on vs Obama. And on foreign policy the only thing he really can do is sound more hawkish than Obama. Seriously the GOP really doesn't want to win this election. Romney will end up losing by a larger margin than McCain ASSUMING that Romney is the GOP nominee.

The Signs Say...

"Repeal and Replace". Why isn't anyone asking the obvious: "Replace with what?"

Replace

with the name "Romneycare". Romney really hates that he can't take credit for the Health Care tax, er, I mean, penalty. *head explodes*
