Open Chat... All Day, Every Day! Express Your Views, Debate, and Challenge the Views of Others!

In order to keep up with the nature of free, spirited debate, I wanted to place the chat feature at the top of the homepage. This ensures people can come here and share their views on anything they wish and not have it be related to any specific discussion.

READER'S POST #13 - Real Men Don't Play with Little Red Toys

By: RLancaster1234

I've been following this blog for a while, and I just had to get this out. It's quick, and it reflects on something from yesterday. I am a Mitt supporter, and I'm tired of people like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich scorching the earth in front of the man most likely to be the GOP nominee.

And many, many more.

The press has grabbed this, and the worst part is, so has the GOP nominee field. 

I want to puke. I want to scream. This is asinine! 

Romney's campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom did not say, "well, Mitt Romney will just change his positions when going against Barack Obama." But if you read the headlines and the articles, that's precisely what is being conveyed. I understood what Fehrnstrom said completely. He said, (this is my summary; it's not verbatim), "when we get the nomination, we can change are whole campaign strategy to focus on the democrat candidate, not the republican ones." 

YES! That would be a whole, "clean slate" change. That is precise. When playing in the preseason, the Cleveland Browns (my team) don't play the same as if they were playing in the playoffs. They change their game plan entirely, but the don't stop playing football. They don't play baseball one day and football the next. That's what the press wants you to believe. That's not what Fehrnstrom meant, and that's not what Mitt is going to do.

So what can we do? Spread the message: shame on the media for intentionally taking this out of context and trying to ruin a great GOP candidate. Shame on the GOP candidates for adding fuel to the democrats' fire. This is silly, and most importantly, we should spread the slogan:

  1. Yes Rlancaster. Yes!

    It's on my twitter.


  2. RLancaster, Mitt Romney has run the most negative campaigns (2008 too) imaginable and you want to cry about him getting a little of what he just loves to dish out, that's priceless.

    Maybe, men that work for serial flip floppers (props to my buddy Whatsamattausa for that term)shouldn't use references to Etch a Sketch. And maybe you and Mitt should just put your big boy pants on and take it like a man.

    I got sick of Mitt's attack ads that ran ad nauseum here in Tennessee. I'm so glad that his ads are gone. Yes, he is going to end up the nominee.

    I just hope ole Mittens is as tough on 0bama as he has been the entire Republican field with the exception of Ron Paul. You know, the field that he scorched all the earth in front of.

    After Romney wins the nomination I suggest you keep your big boy pants on because he is going to get hammered by the media then, and 0bama, and unions, and the 0bama super PAC.

  3. BREAKING NEWS ! ! !

    Huge Pornography Stash Found at Rick Santorum’s House !

  4. I was a Republican, but this race has turned e to Obama. He's actually doing a pretty good job.

    1. He is???? on which planet do you live, sir? 15 tril in debt and little results for it is not doing pretty well.

    2. I would love to hear your definition of "pretty good job"

      I think you are just delirious
