We Need To Attack Mitt Romney NOW!

Every day I see a number of posts attacking Gary Johnson.
I think the posters activist spirit is misplaced.
Why don't they create posts attacking Mitt Romney?

It is Mitt Romney who is the one standing as an obstacle.
Romney and his campaign machine is the one preventing Dr. Paul from obtaining the GOP nomination at the RNC next month.

Gary Johnson is just a 'little guy' who is trying to get into the 'big dance' (presidential debates).
Don't waste your activist energy on attacking him.
Attack the real enemy instead.

People should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people.

In a small ostensibly a "conservative" community

where I live now I prefer to intensify meaningful exchanges of opinions between OUR liberty-minded younger activists and GOP old timers to find & strengthen our common grounds.

I am convinced that we ALL wish to preserve (well, more like "regain") our LIBERTY.

We have to establish a pleasant working relationship first: and for that, pell-mell attacks on their favorite candidate won't be productive.

It depends on WHERE one

is posting. On those so-called 'conservative' sites (really NEOCON sites) devoted to general conservative positions, I use the theme of the post to point out how Romney isn't going to change anything and continue with Obama's programs. Example - if it's a story about the TSA I ALWAYS point out how Mitt's Natl Security Advisor is Michael Chertoff and explain who Chertoff is then add that Mitt is planning to continue to expand the TSA. And I always remind people how he is pro NDAA provisions, etc. I always close by informing that community about Ron Paul's position on whatever topic.
But for the DP, I don't need to do that. We are a community devoted to getting Ron Paul elected as our next President. GJers are the interlopers here. We don't get Mitt's minions pushing their candidate on us. We don't need to to defend Dr Paul against Mitt here, but we do have to keep our goal of getting Dr Paul elected President to the fore. We don't need distractions. One goal here - President Paul.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Nicely Put

And your statement re: GJers being the interlopers...spot on!

I might add that these interlopers are also possible Romney Operatives.
..nothing surprises me any more.

Thanks for an insightful concise opinion.

good idea but give it up - paul campaign never attacks real enem

paul campaign never really attacked obamaney much, and especially romney is where they had a hands off policy. perhaps it is bec of the friendship that the paul campaign set up with romney in 2008, after the elections. hence, out of friendship, there is no critiques although romney certainly hasn't been kind to pual and even has mocked him.

Good points

But this is not about the official campaign of Dr. Paul.

I don't care what Benton says.
If he wants to continue being friends with the Romney camp that's his path.

LM Liberty Movement has nothing to do with RP's campaign staff.

Perhaps LIFTING Up

...and supporting Ron Paul and his delegates is more important right now then attacking Mitt Romney or anyone else for that matter.

And Obama Is Doing Well in that Regard

He's doing this for us whether he knows it or not.

Tampa RNC is still looming..attacking Mittens now would be a strategic error....IMHO.

And the AUDIT the FED BILL is still in play.
It could be an ace up our sleeve.

Good point

Still I think exposing Romney for who he is opens the eyes of Romney delegates and makes it possible for them to come over to our side.

Here is a ChipIn to hurt Romney

Romney is losing bigtime on realclearpolitics.com. We can produce evidence that Romney will loose to Obama and Ron Paul will win, only when we conduct our own national poll to prove it. Update is: $835 in,$1665 more needed to complete the first of three polls by Rasmussen, 1000 people polled. Please consider chipping in to this effort.

reasonnow

agreed

attack R$ and Obama with the same energy and resources we did promoting Dr.Paul.

WE ARE!

Via the LFRP lawsuit! Stripping Romeny of "his" delegates would be a very hard blow, and would be hard to cover up via the media because Convention Votes would be open, and tell a very powerful story.

I would agree that there needs to be other fronts for attack for us, but w/o media support - I'm not sure what we can do.

I don't even think that Democrats would go for the Jugular, because the Dem (an R) leadership + media will never let the truth get out far and wide.

Thanks

There are a lot of things that can happen before the convention.
I wish every real journalist in the country is digging deep into Romney's past -- perhaps we can get someone from the inside a whistleblower coming forward with something that would cut the legs from under Romney's campaign.
