Romney Can Still Overcome Obama’s Dishonest, Divisive Campaign

He can get by his ’47 percent’ problem and beat Obama by outlining how he will get America back to work

From U.S. News, By Mortimer B. Zuckerman, September 21, 2012 – The problem for Mitt Romney right now is that he has put his entire candidacy at risk to the point where he may not even qualify for the dismissive equation of Barack Obama that Marco Rubio formulated for the Republican faithful: “Our problem is not that he’s a bad person. Our problem is that he’s a bad president.” Is Romney also “not a bad person, just a bad candidate”? With his “47 percent” remarks at a Republican fundraiser in May, he has given his opponent evidence to initiate a new line of attack.

The Cost of Wind-Energy Jobs

The “our industry creates jobs” argument is the last refuge of a subsidy seeker.

From National Review Online, By Robert Bryce, September 17, 2012 – Proponents of wind-energy projects frequently claim that wind is free. That may be true, but creating jobs in the wind-energy business is a very expensive proposition.

The battle over the federal production tax credit (PTC) for wind, which amounts to 2.2 cents per kilowatt-hour and expires at the end of the year, is heating up. Last month, the Senate Finance Committee approved a plan to extend the PTC. Republican nominee Mitt Romney has said that, if elected, he will let the credit expire. President Obama wants to extend it: Last week, in a speech at the Democratic National Convention, he declared that “thousands of Americans have jobs today building wind turbines.”

TOP OBAMA CHAMPION SWITCHES FOR ROMNEY

by Joe Kovacs, from WND.com, August 15, 2012 – In 2008, he was one of the biggest champions for Barack Obama, even serving as an Obama campaign co-chairman and seconding Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

But that was then and this is now.

These are the words of a man who should be (Vice) President

From RedState, by Bill S (Diary), August 12th at 6:06PM EDT –

Last week Charles Krauthammer wrote a column that I consider one of his best in quite a while, titled “The case against re-election.”  In it, he examined Obama’s failed programs and legislation and the potential campaign strategy for Mitt Romney.  Krauthammer’s most important point focused on how important it is for Mitt Romney – and now Paul Ryan – to campaign against Obama on ideological grounds.

There are two ways to run against Barack Obama: stewardship or ideology. You can run against his record or you can run against his ideas.

2012 General Election ~ what’s at stake?

President Ronald Reagan

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free…..”

Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important thing to consider regarding the upcoming presidential election….

“…..if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy.

Romney or Santorum – or neither!

Which Santorum do you like?

The “I was for Romney before I was against Romney.”

or

The social conservative Santorum?

or

The earmark loving, big spending, union labor supporting, budget busting liberal Santorum?

The GOP Race Gets Messy

Mitt Romney speaks in Grand Junction, Colo., February 6, 2012.

From NationalReviewOnlineBy Jonah Goldberg, February 10, 2012 –

Okay, I give up.

About a week ago, I wrote a column

Jonah Goldberg

making a case for Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee. My argument was aimed at fellow conservatives who just can’t get their minds — or at least their hearts — around a Romney candidacy. The details aren’t important right now (and they’re easy enough to find with the interwebs these days).

The reason I wrote the column in the first place was that I felt the cold steel barrel of reality’s revolver pressing up against the back of my head, saying “write it.”

Romney’s going to be the nominee. He’s vastly preferable to Obama. If he’s the inevitable nominee, then better for conservatives to make peace with the idea.

Newt Gingrich Wins. What It Means.

Mitt and Newt will both have trouble beating Barack Obama. Mitt’s trouble will come from Obama. Newt’s trouble from himself. But right now, the base doesn’t care.

From RedState.com, by Erick Erickson, Saturday, January 21st at 7:07PM EST – No candidate has won the GOP nomination for President without winning South Carolina since Ronald Reagan in 1980. But every one of those candidates who won had also won either Iowa or New Hampshire.

We’re now confronted with a designated front runner, Mitt Romney, who got less votes in Iowa in 2012 than he got in 2008 and who lost South Carolina. His reason for being somehow remains that he is “electable.” Continue reading →
