Romney Hates You and Thinks You're Stupid

Yes, Romney hates you, the Republican voter, especially if you are conservative. He doesn't want to get off of his elitist perch and try to actually campaign for your votes. He thinks he is entitled to them (thanks to his pedigree and the fact he has been campaigning for 6 years) already and wants the elitists that he bribed with cash and future positions to reach out to you for him. To make the attacks and to actually do the physican campaigning. Haven't you noticed how distant he is from actual voters at events and how few interviews he gives (and when he does give interviews he seems to resent some of the questions)? And his comments yesterday really drove home how much he despises us:

It's very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments. We've seen throughout the campaign that if you're willing to say really outrageous things that are accusatory and attacking President Obama that you're going to jump up in the polls. You know, I'm not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support. I am who I am.

Basically, he is saying "oh that Republican base, they are like animals. They are just too stupid to get me, they want someone to entertain them and show them something shiny. Well, I'm not stooping to their level." He seems to have the same view of Republicans as the mainstream media, who think conservative Republicans are a mass of unevolved cretins. That we don't like him purely because of his style. That just proves that he really doesn't understand conservative Republicans at all. We don't like Romney because we have absolutely zero faith that he will govern as a conservative. He has a terrible record in Massachusetts and has already said he wants to increase the minimum wage and tax the rich as President. It's also pretty clear that he won't repeal Obamacare, which is based on his own universal healthcare plan. Also, it seems weird that Romney is unwilling to really go after Obama given the merciless attacks he has leveled against his own fellow Republicans.

Which brings me to the real evidence that he thinks Republican voters are stupid. The actual content of his attacks on fellow Republicans are 100% hypocritical and anyone with any memory can see through them. Romney savaged Newt for supporting an individual mandate in the past, despite being the only Governor, Republican or Democrat, to actually pass an individual mandate in their state. Attacked Newt for his plan to combat illegal immigration while at the same time not being clear how his plan would actually be different. He even accused Newt of funding abortions despite the fact that Newt has a 98.6% lifetime rating from the National Right to Life Committee while Romney was pro-choice for years. Recently, he attacked Santorum for voting for earmarks that he himself received and voting for No Child Left Behind, which he himself supported!

He probably can't wait until the nomination fight is over so he can pivot to the left and never have to deal with the hated Republican base again.

Sometimes I think people are too stupid as well. It is so obvious that Romney is the perfect Democrat, yet he will probably be the Republican nominee.

My only hope is Super Tuesday brings about a different result. Maybe the other half of the United States is fully awake and hand Mitt Romney a huge loss.

One thing that is perfectly clear, 2008 is going to play out all over again. Only this time, America is done for.

Well, God help our Republic if everyone gave up as easily.

they're trying to hypnotize you.

Wake up!

look at what freedom and being an American mens to you and get in touch with your resolve. My friend, YOU are part of the will of the American people. They've buffaloed you and you feel helpless. Watch this and get strong again.

Oh, and read PolitiJim's awesome comment at the link.

One of Romney's foreign policy advisors was on the Colbert Report and basically praised Obama's foreign policy. Help. Newt 2012.

Trish, I didn't see that. That's horrifying. There really wont be much difference if he is elected. Let's pray Newt can pull it out on Tuesday.

I guess liberals will have to come up with a different adjective for me besides racist since Mitt Romney makes my skin crawl as much as Obama's. I don't trust either of them to put our country's needs before their own.

I am astonished that conservatives are buying into his dishonest hype.

Let us please pray to our creator for the strength to lead our country to wake up and do the right thing in this primary and in November.
