Doug Wead: Romney's Revenge


"Mitt Romney’s mean spirited National Convention, run by a team who has refined exclusion and pettiness to an art, will now rely more than ever on the socialism and failed economy of Barack Obama to get their man elected. The door of their campaign is shut for anyone else to come in. At the RNC there was no generosity in victory, no forgiveness, no open arms, no calls for unity. Only scowls. It is payback time. To an unlikely combination of evangelicals, homosexuals and other targeted groups, the pain of the Romney’s will soon be unleashed upon them.

"Now, more than ever, the choice between Obama and Romney will be which one do you want to ruin your country?" ~ Wead

The USA and the World, cannot afford

to have Hilary Clinton as POTUS.
It seems that the NEXT four years are going to be more important than the last 4

this is very thought-provoking--

I've had my hand slapped for using the "Z" word on here--

but many Jews who have been extreme 'neo-conservatives' have never experienced persecution for their religion; many of them aren't even religious--

I would use that same analogy for Romney. Romney, like his Jewish counterparts, has never experienced any discrimination for 'his' religion--

perhaps there are Jews and Mormons who have experienced persecution, but many of them don't appreciate the radical warmongers who purportedly 'defend' them--

No, Romney is not taking revenge for Mormons; he is merely taking for himself whatever he sees and wants--

or he is a tool, and if he is, it's not for mainstream Mormons. Sad to say, there are as many Mormons who are duped for Romney as there are Jews who are duped for Israel--

but wait a minute . . . how many of Romney's top 'assistants' have dual-citizenship?

People who suffered in Nazi prison camps in Germany in the 1930s and 40s were not avenged by the blood of Christian, Jewish, and Islamic Palestinians in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, etc.--

I hope my point is clear--

Romney is a counterfeit as an American and a Mormon--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

"Getting the nomination takes a bit of genius,

or an act of God,..."

Uh, I don't think so, Doug. That is, unless you are speaking about Dr. Paul getting the nomination, and even then, "a bit of genius" doesn't work, either.

Only an act of God can save our country now.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”

True Nonna

"Only an act of God can save our country now"

and that's how it's always been!
Keep praying everyone!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Fascinating and appalling.

It is exactly what I expected Romney to do. This is who and what he is.

A Crime Has Been Committed

The bus driver who intentionally drove the delegates around in circles to intentionally delay their arrival - as well as those who instructed him to do so - are guilty of kidnapping. Is anyone pressing charges?

Mormons should be ashamed

...at how their lime-light boy (chosen or not, representing them to many) is representing their Christianity.

At the RNC there was no generosity in victory, no forgiveness, no open arms, no calls for unity. Only scowls. It is payback time.

Judge not lest ye be judged, but I'm not talking about that harsh of a judgment, just a simple assessment of the kind Artur Davis had in mind when he referenced Democratic ACTIONS and said, "does this sound like compassion to you?!" Do Romney's actions at the Convention - in person or by those he chose to represent him - sound like Christianity to you?

Is he being the type of magnanimous victor that Jesus Christ would have him be?

P.S. There is a difference also in seeing the first member of a ethnicity to rise to a certain height as representative, and a religion. Ethnicity is a condition of birth/heritage, while adults choose to adhere to a belief set. I'm also not saying Mitt represents the LDS as a whole, I'm saying Mormons should be weary that he is perceived as doing so. Mormons are not a duplicitous people, but MITT SURE IS!

I hope so, but the use of the collective . . .

succeeds again--

men like Romney know and use that--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I have revenge in mind

I will vote for Obama.

Heck the puppet that everybody hates is better than the one that everybody does not know.

Besides, at least with Obama, WE KNOW that he's a socialist. At least half of the country thinks Romney is a conservative.


... dude don;t do that, rather abstain, by you not voting for Romney as effective as doing something stupid like vote for Obama. Remember these guys probably have set this all up so Mitt is the fall guy and Obama wins anyway, then you r playing into their game. Always to the right thing, no matter how hard it is.

To really piss them off, tell poeple around you the lies of Romney and you'll notice how pissed the sheeple get.

Amen Brother

We all need to vote for Obama. That is the only logical vote and choice that makes sense. Sending Gary Johnson a bunch of votes with no win just has the fat boys in the country clubs laughing at our stupidity.

Not this time Jackson.

I was on the fence as to voting for Mitt or not. I decided to base it on whether or not they played fairly with Ron Paul.

They realized that we were still going to win in Tampa and pulled out all the stops to win.

In military terms it is winning a battle and losing the war.

Vietnamization of the Ron Paul movement is not going to happen for me.

Instead of winning hearts and minds through force and coercion they have solidly pissed me the hell off.

Romney is such an empty suit to play such dirty pool with someone he calls a friend there is no way in hell he can be trusted.

On top of that they control the majority of the right wing radio and television so they tell those guys what to say and do.

With Obama someone is at least making the motions that they hate him.

With Romney there is only unfettered access to power and the coffers of the United States.

Tony Soprano is more honest than this prick. When he busted companies you knew you had a gangster doing it. Romney does it like a Judas with a smile, a hand shake and a knife in the back.

If your going to stab me let me see your teeth.


You could just vote for Dr. Paul. You don't need the RNC or DNC's permission to vote for ANYONE. You can vote for whoever you like. Welcome to America. Yes, I know he won't win, but to me, that sends a better message. Just saying...

"Be a listener only, keep within yourself, and endeavor to establish with yourself the habit of silence, especially on politics." -Thomas Jefferson

fascinating read.

Great post.


This is one of the more interesting articles I've seen

With the convention over, I was expecting some making nice with Romney and building bridges for the future.

Instead, Wead seems to be setting the table for a party war in 2016.
It's like he's saying it's establishment fat cats and Catholics against every other demographic: hispanics, women, blacks, gays, evangelicals, and libertarians. Interesting coalition, but in fact all of those groups were uneasy with Romney from the start. Not gonna speculate why he's alienating Catholics, I'm sure we have a few on board.

I have to mull this over, but it certainly seems the campaign would rather Obama get reelected than have Romney win. Seems like they want to see a third party surge to send a message to the GOP.

If I understood what I read,

This was just the end of the RNC/GOP alliance.

The GOP elected the RNC and the RNC moved back into the farmhouse.

The GOP was a dead weight so the RNC dumped it. They dumped the GOP and there is no complaint department.

There is now no purpose for local delegates. They will no longer elect National Delegates. More money will then be available to buy a delegate position.

If you want to become a national delegate you bid for the position. A national delegate has to pay for the right to be commanded by the RNC.

Apparently the RNC is now independent of State control. Being independently funded eliminates the need to heed State parties.

I think the DNC is further down that road than the RNC. Instead of pesky party pols and interest groups they are going direct with their message including synchronization with paid media campaigns.

Elections are reduced to absentee ballots that come just after you've watched the election programming. Vote who gets a vacation on the island with the White House?

Instead of an expensive two year process it takes two months of TV and meetings with food provided. It will be some of the best food and TV entertainment. I am talking WWF and high quality infotainment.

I suspect that the legal foundation for the for a Party without people was established in 1971 by the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA). The act created a two party cartel with monopoly control of the election process.

The Fed is anxiously awaiting a chance to pump money into the economy. Right actions will be rewarded. The MSM is drooling at the prospects. Drug companies are planning on a fire sale on anti-depressants.

The old system was pretty crappy. well It's gone now.

The need for local liberty activism is widespread. Government ignores the Constitution but we do so at our peril.

Is Congress worth it's cost? If the Central planners don't see the profit then they'll get pinks slip.

The microcosm of the macrocosm...

The state government is now subject to the federal government. The states can no longer protect their borders, even though the federal government in mandated by the constitution to do so.

In the same way, the local, county and state GOP has been replaced by the almighty RNC because that is the only way they can control any liberty candidate from attaining the GOP nomination. We forced their hand. We forced them to do what they desperately didn't want to do. We forced them to show all americans to see that the political system is totally rigged and controlled at the very top and only the priviledged few are allowed entrance to its inner sanctum..This is where the real power is and now we have verified it by forcing them to reveal it..

When we get control of all the lower levels of the GOP eventually we will take over the RNC and they know that. But remember, they are always two and three steps ahead of us.

Consequently, they have stepped up their police state apparatus in order to control all opposition to their ultimate agenda, world government. They are moving very quickly now to destroy the real free press, the internet and the economy. They know they must maintain control of all information or else they know they are doomed. If they win the race, the republic and its people will become slaves on the land that their fathers fought and died for..

Who will win is anybodies guess. The people must decide how they want to live: in tyranny or as a free people. The event is in the hand of God..

I don't understand. Evangelicals support the neocon/

establishment view on these extended wars and Israel. Romney's taking revenge because he hadn't been their first choice?

Evngelicals do not support the neocon

Evangelicals do not support the neocon. They have simply voted for the lesser of two evils because of how bad Obama really is (yes, I know, its a problem) grassroots evangelicals are probably the closest group to libertarians.

Perhaps I used "evangelical" incorrectly. I was

referring to these two influential Christian leaders, each with a daily tv program and worldwide following. I'm not saying they're bad people, but I do not agree with them on this re America's foreign policy.

They don't need support, RNC is independently funded.

GOP has been discarded by the central controllers as being too costly and unpredictable.

Free includes debt-free!

But what does the RNC have against evangelicals? This

article was titled "revenge." Revenge for what... is what I don't understand.

Every cycle, they have to field a candidate who rarely (if ever) wins, but can eventually deliver the evangelicals to the nominee.

They won't vote for a Mormon for President, and unless there's some kind of payoff, they won't tell their people to support him either. The 'revenge' part of it is because they mounted an effort for Huckabee to oppose Mitt in 2008, and got behind Santorum this time in much the same way.

Do You Think Romney has A Soul?

I believe that Romney's pathology Is much deeper and darker than Barack Obama..

If i were the devil I will act and talk like him...

There is a reason

why Romney comes across like a plastic zombie.

Perhaps Mittens is the Anti-Christ

I mean he is a member of what is not too hard to call a cult.

I have friends who are Mormon, they are very nice people but the only difference between a religion and a cult is time and followers.

Mormonism can rightly be described as the imaginings of a man. Please don't hate me for that assessment but there it is for everyone to see.

There can be little doubt

There can be little doubt that Mittens has a thirst for office. He has gone at this thing for so long, planned for it too intensely, for it all to be anything other than "my will be done, damn the variable and unpredictable circumstances in my way!"

So... yes, seems a bit devilish. The differences I see in Ron Paul's demeanor and self effacing pursuit of the presidency is stark. Is it just me (and I know its not) but when Paul speaks next to any of these other stuffed shirts, I see a genuine soul and not a facade hiding something underneath. I am reminded of something G.K. Chesterton wrote... and it fits this relative comparison between Romney and Paul in their very beings....

(paraphrased a bit) "We should not crown the exceptional man who knows he can rule; rather we should crown the much more exceptional man who knows he can't."

There is a catch-22 in all systems of majority rule, even a pure republic (for even in such a republic, majorities still select their representatives). Men will choose to seek office, and it takes a wise electorate able to determine why each has decided to seek such office. Paul had to be literally talked into running in 08. He thought the people were not ready. And he thought they were not ready because pain had not taught its terrible lessons enough for any significant wisdom to have been imparted.

Does a Mannequin have a soul?

Mannequin Mitt, I calls him.

Meh. According to Doug, whom I trust, it was more like Romney's Suicide.

(in his first take anyway)

I only hope Mitt won't miss that one.

We'll be busy enough saving ourselves from Obama's deathcraft.
