It is always amusing to read comments from Romneybots, and I suspect some are from Romney staffers, maybe even a few Romney family members. The comments are found on various comment sections affixed to articles and blogs regarding Romney.
Popping up all over internet are comments posted which proclaim various political tickets, which Romney’s name is always prominently displayed as president, and what ever candidate is receiving rave reviews at the moment in the press, displayed as vice president on a Romney ticket. The posts appear to be an act of desperation on part of Romney supporters, to attach Mitt to someone who could bring in the votes Romney knew he could not sway over; reinforcing the view Romney is an opportunist, pander.
Is there a pattern developing here?
“Haley could be a great running mate for Romney in two years!”
“SCOTT BROWN INTRODUCED MITT ROMNEY AT CPAC. SO WILL IT BE VP SCOTT BROWN OR MARCO RUBIO 2012?”
Then there was Romney for V.P. The highly touted M & M ticket began to appear on many blog comments, after Romney dropped out of the President race on Super Tuesday.
“Mitt Romney is the man! Now here's a guy that will bring excitement and money to the GOP ticket. There is simply no one that ran or is running that has the "proven" experience and accomplishments as Mitt. Selecting Mitt will also please the "conservatives" in this great country. But most important is that by John adding Mitt to the ticket the following sates go "RED" on the night of November 4th.............. New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, Michigan, and New Hampshire. Mitt as veep would also put "major" pressure on Obama in Californina, Oregon, and Washington state, as well as Mid-west states of Minnesota, Winsconsin, and Iowa. Our mostly "corrupt liberal press" hates Mitt Romney so we can expect them to poo poo this pick......................An M & M ticket is unbeatable.........................write it” --- From Politico comment section
“I bet it would be McCain and Romney. McCain brings heft, the military, good old fashioned macho guy, strength, Romney brings movie star good looks, reasonable ability to compromise on social issues which shows brains and reason, good economic talent and would guarantee Michigan for Republicans. McCain will easilty get Florida. It's certain Pennsyl and Ohio will go for Top Gun and the Movie Star. I'm diggin this combo. It's a winner. Game Set Match.” --- From Politico comment section”
Romney confuses arrogance with confidence, being a bully for self-confidence -
And repeated reversals on stands and position with staying true to whom one is.
As we all know, Romney was passed over for V.P and Palin was selected.
Comments currently being posted regarding Romney and Romneycare:
“Massachusetts health reform plan he signed into law in 2006 is "the ultimate conservative plan."
“This guy may not be perfect, but he effectively ran a company as well as a state (one with healthcare I might add)”
“To lay the entire fault of Mass Card at Romney’s feet is untruthful….”
Then there are comments regarding Mitt himself:
“Mitt Romney is authentic and smart. We need more candidates/officials like him!”
“Mitt and Ann Romney for president and first lady!”
“America needs Mitt Romney 2012!”
“Mitt Romney shined, he stood out” --- Ahhh, that's right, Romney’s movie star looks.
And of course, the new and improved Mitt Romney. Old Romney of 2008 out, new Romney for 2012 in.
From Media Matters: “Did you know there's a "new" (read: improved) Romney? It's true, it says so right in this Politico headline: CPAC embraces the new Mitt Romney”
“How, exactly, does Politico know there's a "new" Romney? Surprise! Romney "aides" says so. (Brilliant!)”
“And how do we know CPAC has embraced the "new" Romney? Because people at CPAC applauded when Romney spoke, even though, yeah, they pretty much clap for everyone.”
Romney and military service cannot be forgotten:
“One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I'd be a great president.”
“Romney conflated selfishness with selflessness” ---- A comment on Romney’s statement from Perrespectives.com, regarding his sons lack of military service, couldn’t be stated a better way.
“I'm so happy that America has a 2nd chance to elect Mitt Romney. We haven't had a legitimate chance to elect a president as supremely talented and intelligent as Mitt Romney in a generation. I'm proud Mitt Romney is willing to go to Afghanistan to say thanks in person to our brave men and women, and I hope he comes back safely.”
Oh, really we haven’t had a chance to elect... in this generation? What was the 2008 race?
And ‘we hope he comes back safely”? What politician hasn’t?!
As for Romney’s supreme sacrifice and ‘willingness’ to visit troops in Afghanistan? Is there really anything to say, a sacrifice away from the beaches and ski runs, deserves the Purple Heart. – Pure juvenile silliness pours from Romney’s campaign!
Mitt confuses arrogance with confidence, being a bully for self-confidence -
And repeated reversals on stands and position, with staying true to who one is. Romney confuses “selfishness with selflessness”.
