A Place for All Conservatives to Speak Their Mind.
As I stated earlier tonight, he can't afford these mistakes. He needs to stay on message. I'm not sure he can do it. 20 years of flip-flopping will do that to you. ;)TC, Are you leaning toward any particular candidate right now, or still holding out for hope that Huck reconsiders?What if Huck doesn't get in? It looks like slim pickings right now. Most of them can't raise money. Bachmann is....oh, never mind. I don't want to slam her too hard, but I envision a rough road for her. I know stuff that most don't know. Looks like we need a strong anti-Romney candidate, or I'm afraid he'll win in a walk. What do you think?
According to Special Report- the question asked of Romney today was about the stock market. When he said “I didn’t say he made it worse” he was speaking specifically about the market. BKeyser on July 1, 2011 at 9:46 PM That was from a comment on a similiar "lame" report on HotAir. .....specifically ABOUT THE MARKET. I don't have the link for the Special Report but can probably find on the Hotair by alluhpundit (sp).People need to think through things a little bit. After ALL he has been saying recently about Obama's performance, the powerful ads Romney has had recently.....really? You think he is saying that??No.........the audio of the question/answer was poor and MSM makes the MOST of it.We need to be rational......not hysterical.
Thanks for asking RWN,I am just observing all the candidates right now. I am not leaning towards anyone. No one excites me yet.I did see this out on twitter today and it peaked my interest:@hotlinereid #secondthoughts RT @TimAlbrechtIA: Hmmm RT @Sandy_Greiner: Anybody know WHY Huckabee is doing phone polling in IA?
TC,That woman is a realtor. I'm not sure how she would know who conducted the poll. Could be 'Craig for Huck' spending his life savings to try to coax Mike into the race, ;)
Big deal.... no matter how you look at it .... Obama has failed.
Go HERE. Hit the Pop-Up button under the photo. TURN-UP your volume ALL THE WAY or use sensitive headphones. NOW, Fast forward to the 5:30 minute mark. The question Romney got by a female reporter about the stock market was answered CORRECTLY by Romney. NO FLIP-FLOP!As Herman Cain would say, "Case Closed!" Nice try though. Just no cigar.
Thanks Bosman for pointing the truth out.I could barely hear the total question so I had to play it a few times to get the whole thing.Romney answered it correctly about the stock market.
BosmanWe need a front-page post about clearing up the truth regarding the stock market question, so we can pass it around the blogs.Thanks
Actually,Reid is Editor for National JournalAlbrecht is communications director for IA Gov Brandstadand Sandy Greiner is a Republican state senator in IowaAll of that makes it even more interesting that they would tweet about Huckabee...

Seriously, if you think that you can clear up bad perceptions of Romney by linking obscure, hard to hear references on an obscure, small blog, then you are very deluded.This probably won't hurt Romney at all in the primary, but this sort of thing will kill him in the general.DanL
well Dan, Wasn't trying to CHANGE THE WORLD with my comment. Just pointing out a place for folks to go to SEEK THE TRUTH! If they're not interested, NO LOSS!We can all still remember what seeking the truth is all about, right?
This will kill him in the general? Are you kidding?Any objective observer knows he was talking about the stock market.Even FOX NEWS, (The anti-Romney network) said it was about the stock market.
Can someone transcribe as much as possible of the question from the reporter? I put my volume up and still couldn't hear make it out.MikeZ
You're all missing the point.You can talk about this till the cows come home. If doesn't matter what he said. DanL is right. This one is now etched in stone. Mitt said it, whether he said it or not.....just like Palin said she can see Russia from her house.If Mitt wins the nomination, you all are in for a rude awakening. This one is small potatoes. You're wasting you time. It's now a matter of public record.
RW, even if this unfortunate statement gets attributed to him, why would this be a problem for him but the silly things Palin or Bachmann or Perry have been blamed for wouldn't be?MikeZ
MikeZYou're completely missing my point. I honestly don't know what the reporter said, but regardless...all of your efforts (and Mitt's efforts) to correct the record are a waste of time. The DNC will continue to run the ad and the media will continue to report it...even if they find evidence to the contrary.That is the new reality. Over the past three years, many on our side stood by and watched Palin get smeared on a daily basis. Some even participated.It will become more clear to you as time goes on.
RW, just so you know, I'm on your team. I'm well aware of the "new reality." I jumped up and down when I heard she was nominated for McCain's VP. I ardently defended her while she was campaigning. I know Palin got unjustly smeared as an idiot. The problem with her is, she handed the media that many more opportunities to smear her. I value honesty and consistency, and that's why I want to know if Mitt merely misspoke, or if he was answering the question consistently and it's being used to smear him, or if he tried to cover up and deceive. Mitt usually is very disciplined and very on message and resists taking the bait. He's shown admirable integrity and focus in zeroing in on Obama and building up his republican co-runners. But if this is a flip, it's a puzzling and disturbing one, and it once again calls into question his honesty, which the DNC knows is important quality for many GOP voters such as myself, and no doubt will attempt to capitalize it.MikeZ
I just listed at the 5:30 mark. It was a long question. The word stock market was mentioned early on, but I don't think it was part of the question. Mitt's response was "I didn't say things are getting worse." In my mind, it's inconclusive. We either need better audio, or a transcript of the question.But, in the end it doesn't matter. Mitt said it, whether he said it or not.
I would assume that Mitt Romney will be steering clear of questions from reporters that are following him. Here is an article related to that:http://old.news.yahoo.com/s/atlantic/20110702/pl_atlantic/itsmrnocommentversusmsaccessible39537
This one is now etched in stone. Mitt said it, whether he said it or not.....just like Palin said she can see Russia from her house.Umm. Palin never said that. Tina Fey did
Anon,"Umm. Palin never said that. Tina Fey did"That's just the point! She didn't say it. But. it. does. not. matter.Most people think she did. And RW's premise is that the same will happen to Romney.Now, I do think that there's nothing wrong with attempting to set the record straight. There'll be a few honest people out there who'd prefer to know exactly what a candidate has said, be it Palin, Romney, or whoever.
