Americans Now Wish They'd Elected Mitt Romney Instead of Obama

The Week: Mitt Romney 2014?

Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they'd overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor's bid. That's just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released Sunday, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That's an even larger spread than CNN found in November, when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent.

Two years ago, Obama won re-election with about 51 percent of the vote.

A CNN poll that asks a loaded question.

"Americans wish the Republican Primary wasn't fixed the past two times so we could've had a chance to elect a constitutionalist."
Said 100% of the respondents of my poll.

"Tu ne cede malis, sed contra audentior ito."


Oh boy, the republic would be so much better if the sheeple had elected the republican socialist piece of criminal filth instead of the democrat one.

Obama - the peace candidate..?

I've been pleasantly surprised at Obama's aversion to full on war. Syria and Ukraine have both provided potential justifications (by the executive standard..) to send some troops in. Obama has managed to avoid doing so in both cases.

That's not to say I think he is doing completely right, in this regard. He did send troops back to Iraq, we're still conducting massive drone war operations in Afghanistan, and don't forget his actions in Libya. Anyway, my point is Romney would likely have wanted to 'appear strong' in his first term and hit Ukraine and Syria in one fell swoop.

Or maybe not, and everything is going just as it's planned ;)

I believe in giving credit

I believe in giving credit where credit is due, however, I don't know if Obama deserves credit for avoiding conflict. In fact, I do know. Obama just requested another $500 million to send to the so called, Syrian 'rebels'. However, We have been funding, arming and training these 'rebels' before open warfare began, most which are affiliated with Al-Qaida, dominated by Islamist ideologies.

We funded, supplied weapons and training to the perpetrators of the Ukrainian coup. Military contractors, mercenaries are used extensively for back door 'uprisings'.

The irony is that while we apparently can’t be trusted with a semi-automatic rifle, the Obama administration completely trusts Islamic extremists with machine guns and heavy weapons!

Anyone with half a brain knows that it is a horrible idea to start giving weaponry to radical Islamists.

We gave weapons to Osama Bin Laden, and look how that turned out for us…

We allegedly secretly trained and armed ISIS last year, the very Islamists who are now taking over Iraq.

This is called blowback, where governments’ lack the foresight and inability to understand the potential consequences of their foreign policies end up coming back to bite us!

Obama is asking for half a BILLION dollars to arm terrorists, he wants TWICE as much to try to disarm you!

In his 2015 budget, Barack Obama wants Congress to give the administration $1.1 Billion to fund new gun control initiatives!

It is all working out as intended and it would have made no difference with Romney at the helm, because they both work for the same masters.

I know I'm gonna get beat up for this one

But I'm genuinely glad that Obama beat Romney.

Not me. Bishop Willard would've started WWIII long before now.

Not me. Barry's a lazy, useless good-for-nothing. But Bishop Willard would've started WWIII long before now. He is convinced he's the White Horse of Joseph Smith's apocalyptic prophecy, the chosen one who would build a new earth of Mormon faithful over the ash-strewn wreckage of the old earth.

Its bad enough that Barry's playing golf while Mad Dog McCain and John Skull n Bones Kerry are trying to get WWIII going. At least he's not pushing for it like Willard would!

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

It is like I told my sister.

Anybody could have beaten Obama in 2012. It is just too bad Willard Romney isn't anybody.

oops posted the reply wrong... [other reply is posted below]

Not a lot of difference...

...Romney is simply a more bellicose carbon copy of Obama; a Hillary clone. If he would have defeated Obama, we would probably been stuck with him for 8 years, at least there is some small hope of improvement for 2016.

They obviously didn't poll this American in their study.

thanks for the laugh

Time to Stop posting the same old propaganda...

It is time to stop reading and posting this disinformation!

The party (take your pick) wants this disseminated, as bogus as it is, just like all the fake polls during the last two election cycles, just so the sheeple and couch potato (I repeat myself) will fall head over heels for the next neocon looser they will attempt to offer up as delectable by comparison!

The Tweedledee and Tweedledum of the next faux election! When once more, regardless of party, it will be a contest between two people:

Paul... versus... un-Paul!

Ron Paul 2016! Get used to it!

I'd prefer

a qualifier to this Headline: Some Americans Wish..


YES, NOW THAT MADE ME LAUGH!!! They beat up Ron Paul so bad in 2008 with that word... "some people say he is unelectible" "some people say he is an isolasionist". I love using that phrase against RINO's and demagogues!

I slid down a razor blade into a bucket of iodine ..

It was so horrible!

And to think - all along I could have had a hot poker up my ass instead!

More Mind Control

It is so subtle most people don't notice how this sort of thing programs their thinking. Just think about it, this report is based upon the assumption that it would have made any difference. Those of us that are awake know all the presidents and our government as a whole is controlled by a shadow government of the ruling elite. People who now say they would have preferred Romney are just brain washed morons if they believe anything would be different of he had been elected instead. The ruling class wants their New World Order and the morons like the ones voting in this poll are the very reason they are going to succeed.

Why is this front page

it only has 1 vote.


Gary Johnson was not included in the poll question.

But i did see that "neither" is at 3-4%, whereas Gary Johnson only got 1% in the general election

If I had to choose one of those two it would be Obama

because he's only going to be in office for 2 more years. I wouldn't want a potential 6 more years of Romney. Obama's almost done. Hold your breath and it'll all be over before you know it.

Only if Obama is sufficiently

Only if Obama is sufficiently cornered and not allowed to do further damage.


This is what i was telling my right wing friends in 2012...

4 years of Obama (2 of which will be lame duck) versus 8 years of a RINO.....

Romney would mean that we would not have a chance for a liberty candidate until 2020....Yes, i would rather have Obama win than Romney.

America Tweedle-dee would have made it worse - only SLOWER!

Be careful what you wish for America! Obama and Romney are both Establishment political hacks. Regardless of whoever had been elected in 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000, etc, the Establishment power brokers still win. With a Republican in office the Halliburton's, General Dynamics, Morgan banking, et al. still win, only its less apparent under Republicans.

If Romney had won things wouldn't have changed that much. We would still have the Patriot Act, NDAA's indefinite detention, the TSA, a toned down border crisis, more ships for the Navy, 100,000 more military personnel, more Israeli foreign aid, two wars instead of one and NO FREEDOM MOVEMENT.

Republicans get elected when things are moving too fast for the electorate under the Democrats for it to appear that there is change coming -- How'd that work out under Bush??

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

Same could be said for Kerry and Gore

The next popular president will be either be Rand Paul or we will never have one again.

Did Clinton qualify as popular pre-lewisky? If I am not mistaken JFK wad the last popular president.

Followed by 8 years of Hillary

Why would they have chosen Romney over Obama? So they could blame a white guy? Maybe they would just prefer Romneycare over Obamacare. Personally, I'm glad that Obama won the turd race with Romney because with Romney you knew what you were getting. With Obama there was a glimmer of "hope and change" for these people. I'm glad these people got to see what awaited them. Sadly, they have not learned. That is why we will see 8 years of Hillary. She will ride wave of first woman president. It's her turn and she knows it.

If Romney had been elected, we'd be in about 4 wars at once.

I heard that idiot talking about the conflict in Israel and Gaza as if he was some kind of expert on that region.

Of course, being the stooge for Israrl that he is, all he could do was slam the Palestinians.

Just like the rest of the mainstream media and most of the U.S. polulace, Romney has no interest in hearing about why the Palsetinians might be upset with Israel.

Also, had he been elected, Romney would have sent federal agents into Washington ahd Oregon and arrest people who were using pot as is legal in those states.

He has no interest in state's rights over a big central federal authority.

I'm no Obama fan, but Romney would have been twice as bad in my opinion.

"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."

Both Obama's and Romney's

Both Obama's and Romney's economic advisors are Keynesian economists. And the very same big financial institutions who were Obama's top campaign contributors in 2008 were Romney's top contributors in 2012. Made no difference as far as I'm concerned. If that poll is legitimate, these people are sheep.
