"The Emptiest Candidate in Presidential Election History: Mitt Romney truly believes in nothing."

They've got nothing on him, so they call him nothing. Ah, well, Obama's opponents call him Zero. that makes it Nothing vs. Zero.

***
Too much of nothing
Can turn a man into a liar
It can cause one man to sleep on nails
And another man to eat fire
Ev’rybody’s doin’ somethin’
I heard it in a dream
But when there’s too much of nothing
It just makes a fella mean
***
"I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name. They say, ‘I had a dream! I had a dream!’ How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds?"

How does this hurt Romney, exactly?

He's not running on ideology -- he's running on competence.

Pointing out that he's not a right-wing ideologue is hardly going to hurt him with swing voters.

Their denial of the utter emptiness of Barack Obama, so completely devoid of real world experience, the least experienced man ever nominated and then elected president would be shocking but for the fact of who they are.

roesch/voltaire said...

This morning on CBS Colin Powell gave the most reasoned response on why he will stick with the steady progress made by the Obama administration, and rightly pointed out that Romney's foreign policy seems to be a moving target that doesn't show any depth of thought-- in other words nothing from a nice guy.

bagoh20 said...

Look at the man's life. He's never been anybody else. Some of us have changed enormously over the years, been liberals, stupid risk takers, lazy, promiscuous, wasteful or stingy, brave or cowardly, religious or not, married or not; and then later completely reversed such qualities. Mitt has been boringly consistent for a lifetime.

The left is simply unhappy about having to attack who he really is, since he's neither severely conservative enough to hate nor liberal enough to be a Democrat.

Colin Powell was a weak sister of a General and never really a conservative. He still holds a grudge against Bush and Cheney. He's also black and like the vast majority of blacks in our nation, that carries more weight than anything else when voting.

As to his "reasoned response" well, what nonsense. He's wrong and demonstrably so about progress and foreign policy. Hell, he seems to be unaware that Barry has attacked other nations.

I thought the left loved candidates who are a screen on which to project whatever you like.

bagoh20 said...

Nothing they are throwing at Romney is working, even on the low info people. The best chance they have is trotting out people like James Taylor or Colin Powell to give the low infos something to cling to. This allows them to say: Hey I'm an idiot, so I'll just vote for the same person that guy did twice" The fact that it was clearly a mistake the first time is too much info for them to digest.

Remember Colin Powell didn't support Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry or Hillary Clinton. All three more qualified and moderate than Obama. The Republican, Powell is clearly voting on racial grounds, and that's sad. Should we all do that, Mr Powell?

I mean, I'm just following Chris Matthew's lead about how voting against Barry automatically means you're a racist.

Isn't that fair, garage?

Matthew Sablan said...

Bagoh: I think Powell is more voting on "Bush's people screwed me over" grounds (or, quite possibly, what I really think is the case, is that his domestic policies have always been center-left, and he's accepted, like a lot of other people, that most foreign policy is simple continuation of the previous administration's policy, so you should vote based on domestic policies more than foreign, but doesn't want to explain that.)

Patrick said...

I'm no expert on polls, but nothing I've seen shows that the Democrats' "war on women" thing is working at all. Didn't the President have a massive lead among women in '08?

You should comment on CNN's brief foray into the war on women. Who knew sexually aroused women prefer Obama because he promises free birth control?

Renee said...

The base is motivated over Mourdock, equating what he said to Akin.

Sucks, because I think may will work.

Maybe I'm wrong. I don't know I read the whole quote, as a Catholic we hold a strong belief in 'free will'. Rapist was responsible for their actions, and I don't think Mourdock was implying the rapist was doing God's Will. The term God's Will was incorrect.

As a pro-lifer, the rape circumstance is the most difficult. Even the Catholic Church allows Plan B, when it comes to rape and there is no evidence that that conception has occurred.

As I put it to a relative, this is why rape is so heinous. It takes the act of love, and makes it violent. The act that creates life, into a position of a burden for the woman. No doubt the troubling idea of a woman carrying a child conceived from rape for nine months, and giving birth. Conflicted, because indeed that is her child as well. But abortion isn't a pie-in-the-sky alternative, either. It is her child as well. For the pro-lifer we shouldn't be answering rape with abortion. The same way I'm against the death penalty. We don't respond to violence with violence.

As for the women who do carry to term a child conceived from rape, they point of view does hold some value. Their view shouldn't be undermined, when victims of rape are faced with damned if you do, damned if you don't situations. I wish this issue would be more respected, and not used as a 'gotcha' moment by liberals.

Cosmic Conservative said...

Obama has been acting less and less rational by the day. While I am still discouraged by the polls, I am getting more and more encouraged by Obama's desperate flailing and thrashing as he desperately tries to find some way to tear down his opponent. Having nothing to run on himself, and having no strategy other than destroying his opponent, it is painfully obvious that he is getting increasingly frustrated as his desperate attempts to paint Romney as a monster are failing because people can see the real Romney and contrast with the laughable caricatures that Obama is painting.

Judging simply based on Obama's actions this past week, I can only conclude that the Obama team is getting very bad news in their internal polls.

Russia's pushback against Hillary!'s reset buttion is making steady progress.

Cosmic Conservative said...Judging simply based on Obama's actions this past week, I can only conclude that the Obama team is getting very bad news in their internal polls.

That would be my take also. Obama has lost the election and knows it. If he were any sort of leader in his party, he'd be redirecting at least some part of his campaigning and also shifting the appeal for donations to the DNC with the idea of shoring up some of the down ballot Democrats in trouble. Not going to happen as it's all about Barry and always has been.

As far as I know, any money left over after all the campaign bills are paid and that was directly given to his campaign belongs to him if he loses - whatever he doesn't spend in the next two weeks along with any new donations. Appeals for donations to his campaign rather than the DNC at this point is asking people to further subsidize his retirement.

Or his settlement with Michelle in a couple of years.

Revealing how the nutty left applies standards to Romney / Republicans but cannot manage to apply even the standard they current claim is relevant to Obama/ Democrats. In addition to this nonsense I recall fondly the Democrats attack on Palin's "lack of experience". Apparently they a VP with limited experience was somehow disqualifying but a President with no experience was not. The nuts latch on to whatever they need to support their position. Every day the reasons will be different, but the conclusion will be the same. That's how you know they're full of it.

Larry J said...

Obama is a pyromanic in a field of strawmen of his own construction. After the first debate, he went on the road saying how the Romney in the debate wasn't the real Romney. No, he wasn't the Romney stawman that Obama and his campaign had constructed. In the debate, millions of people got to see the real Romney unfiltered by the Obama spin. Apparently, a lot of people liked what they saw and Romney's support has grown ever since.

Now, the question is this: does Obama actually believe his rhetoric or not? If he still believes that the strawman is the real Romney, then he's a fool. If he doesn't believe what he's saying is true, he's just another lying politician who'll say anything to get reelected.

Let me help you: "If I lived around alot of black people then you would know that 98% of them will be voting for obama even though they openly admit his policies haven't worked because he is black and these voters really don't have a problem with stating that up front."

This is actually a "duh" moment. Nothing very controversial or surprising or unexpected.

This is from the discussions I've had with alot of my friends/associates who are black and many of whom I've known for most of my life (I grew up in and attended majority minority schools in the Bay Area and San Diego and spent many years serving with many minorities in the military and later in the corporate world.)

I do have to admit there are quite a few african american professionals who do not like what obama has done in regards to the cultural issues and several will not be voting for him this time.

However, overall, still 9 out of 10 will pull the lever for obama.

Paul said...

"I think you're full of shit."

Of course you do. Because if what I say is true then your fantasy of the noble black man in his righteous struggle against the evil white oppressor is shot to hell, and black people are just as racist as white people, if not more so.

But it is you who is full of shit because all you have is speculation built out of steaming pile of left wing lies, while I have real world empirical data.

So,given that blacks feel the same sort of pride for obama that the irish felt for Kennedy, I'm now forced now to quote Rod Steiger from "In the Heat of the Night":

There is a reason that Obama continues to attack the strawman he has created instead of dealing with the real Mitt Romney.

Cosmic Conservative said...

Red, Oprah is being quiet this time because her open sycophantic adoration of Obama pretty much killed her career as the most powerful woman in America. Immediately following the election conservative and moderate women who had been watching Oprah religiously for years simply turned the TV off and found other things to do.

Seems that women are not as dumb as the Democrats presumed.

Grocery shopping, balancing the budget, and worrying about their jobs and spouses jobs, women are in no way disconnected from the economy. If Obama gets them to think only about abortion, some people are swayed by that, but most known that the economy is pretty damn important.

For the pro-lifer we shouldn't be answering rape with abortion.

I think everybody knows that is a compromise type situation, not a logical extension of the pro-life position. The baby is still innocent. I’m conflicted about it too, I think Plan B or emergency contraceptives make the most sense.

That Murdoch guy at least tried to give a thoughtful answer.

garage: "Would blacks overwhelming back Herman Cain, just because he is black, over the white Democrat?"

That's actually a fair question given the our proposition that blacks almost universally support obama because he is black.

It has to be recognized and acknowledged that now, as opposed to 40 years ago, there are layers of cultural and other reasons why blacks vote in large numbers for white democrats.

However, in this case (the case of obama running for reelection under the burden of such massive economic failure), blacks are openly stating that they are supporting him because he is black (half!) while admitting that he has not helped them in the least.

Again, not in the least bit surprising.

Hey, remember not too long ago when lefties called Colin Powell a "house n*****"?

A better question would be "Would blacks overwhelmingly support Obama over a white candidate with the same positions". And we don't have to look far for the answer, since Dennis Kucinich was probably the candidate closest to Obama's positioning during the campaign.

Do we even need to look up the relative level of African American support?

You can smell the desperation in the air.

First they tried to paint Romney as an evil right winger who was the guy with the monocle from the Monopoly box.

After the debate when everyone saw that he was a normal sane moderated Rhino....they had nothing left.

So that's what they are going with.

Nothing.

It is the Seinfeld campaign.

George Jefferson.

He was a small businessman who had to make a payroll. And he was honest and up front about his racial animosity. So you knew what you were getting.

And Weezy would have been an all time great first lady.

Now I think every President bases or shapes his Presidency after famous characters that he knew from TV or the movies. It's natural. They try and shape the narrative to fit the images that are instantly recognizable but not explicitly stated.

For example it is well know that John F. Kennedy always saw himself as James Bond. A super cool guy who banged every chick in sight and had a license to kill.

Baron Zemo said...

Lyndon Johnson saw himself as a Western Hero. Like the Duke or Randolph Scott.

In fact he and Walter Jenkins used to play Randolph Scott and Cary Grant every once in awhile until Bobby got caught in that unfortunate thingy in the YMCA.

Baron Zemo said...


Now Dick Nixon saw himself as Henry Fonda in Young Mister Lincoln.

Which pretty much made Henry puke.

The reality of Dick Nixon was that he was really Fonda's character in Mister Roberts. He was a junior office in WW2 who wasn't in a glamorous combat role but was one of the underappreciated rear echelon workers who did so much to help win the war. He didn't have a publicty machine to turn a disaster in a heroic adventure. He was everyman from the "Greatest Generation."

But it didn't work out that way for him in the end.

JL said...

One man's flip/flop is another man's nuance. Note that when Obama "flip/flops" it's called "evolving".

There's a case to be made in favor of the "flip/flopper": Extremists on either side love an uncompromising "dictator", who never waivers or compromises; as long as it is their guy. I'm an independent- no one party represents me completely. Therefore I don't want a President from any party who thinks he/she deserves to dictate their belief systems onto the opposition. I want a person who respects the voice of the opposition; because there is a good chance that voice will be mine.

A key difference between Romney and Obama, is that Romney has shown he is willing to work with his opposition in Congress. Obama and Dems in general do not believe in the idea of a loyal opposition. They believe that only their progressive belief system is the correct one. They express contempt and animosity towards their opponents, and smear them as racists and haters.

I'll take my chance on the "empty flip/flopper". I've had my fill of Mr. "I won".

Baron Zemo said...


Now Bill Clinton idolized JFK but he knew he couldn't pull off the James Bond thing. I always thought that he tried to be Burt Reynolds. You know the Southern good old boy who got all the babes.

Crimso said...

I have, immediately at hand on my Kindle Fire, Romney's plans. He goes into some detail, and then in an appendix he lists his plans as 59 things. Each one is a single clearly understood sentence. You need not agree with these plans, you can argue they are vague (some are, some aren't), but you can't argue the thing doesn't exist. It is freely available, and has been available for over a year. You can tell a lot about what Romney believes in by reading those 59 sentences.

This is basically true ... which makes Romney an incomparably better candidate than the President.

Obama clearly believes in something: that you didn't build that (whatever it is), that it's (whatever it is) likely America's fault, that the Keynesian "experts" are right, that man is a scourge on the planet, etc. Acting on these beliefs has caused his failed presidency. It will undoubtedly be better to have someone that believes in nothing, than the man who believes in these.

Someday, we will have candidates that believe in correct ideas: that the government's role is to protect individual rights, that America, while flawed, is the greatest country in the history of the world (because of its founding ideals), that the best way to protect the environment is to allow the maximum amount of innovation within a system of carefully defined and protected property rights ...that each person's life is an end in itself, not a means to ends devised by government "experts".

Until then, the best we can do is elect people that do not have strong beliefs, in the hope that this will slow our approach to the abyss sufficiently to let the culture improve enough so that people with good ideas can be elected.

That's the strategy which will determine my vote this year.
