Making It Up As He Goes Along

Much has been written here about just why exactly Willard McRomneyCare Mittens is nothing even resembling a conservative, no matter how much the Establishment Cocktail Party tries to convince us that he is, really, deep down, just give him a chance, any day now, got to elect him president so we can see what’s in him…

Blech.

However, DrewM sums up perfectly why Mittens is a disastrous candidate and, in His Imperial Majesty’s opinion, would never win a general election if he, heaven forbid, were to end up the nominee:

Every candidate gets messaging advice but as we learned with the whole “I don’t worry about the poor” fiasco, Romney’s instincts simply aren’t conservative. He really doesn’t have a default ideology that he can fall back on when new things come up. He simply tries to run through his mental lists of “messages” and tries to pick the right one. Sometimes he’s right but often…not so much. [Emphasis added]

And his instincts aren’t conservative because he is not a conservative. Never has been. And that will doom him in a general election campaign even worse than it’s giving him trouble in the primaries.

Nobody can possibly think up every question that could ever be thrown at them and, therefore, nobody can ever collect a complete set of flash cards with the correct answer to every conceivable question. It simply can’t be done.

But if you’re a conservative (or whatever other ideology you’re running for, assuming that you really are what you claim to be), that doesn’t matter. Because you have your core principles to fall back on, and those core principles, even if you’ve never heard the question before, will guide you to the right answer, “the right answer” being the answer that matches with your ideology.

It’s like math, really and yes, somebody may have told you there would be no math on the Rott, so we’ll keep it simple: You don’t have to memorize every single bloody mathematical formula ever written to be a great mathematician, we’re not even sure that that’s possible, you just have to have a firm grasp of the basics. Armed with that, you can deduce, logically, all of the rest. It all follows.

It’s the same with core principles. If you have them, finding the answer that fits them is no big problem and you will always come up with an answer that, although maybe not always popular, will always be consistent with your principles and what you’re marketing yourself as. And that’s important if you want to convince people to take you seriously enough to vote for you. If you’re obviously faking it on a bunch of questions (and yes, the average human being has a very good bullshit detector even though they may not be aware of it), how can anybody believe that you aren’t on the other questions that mattered to them where you came up with an acceptable answer?

Personally, I’d much sooner vote for a consistent candidate who agreed with me most of the time even though he managed to piss me off a couple of times too than I’d ever vote for somebody where I couldn’t even be halfway sure that he meant it when he said what I wanted to hear because of his other inconsistencies.

The best an obvious fake like Mittens can hope for is that his inconsistency and untrustworthiness doesn’t piss off potential voters enough that they’ll vote against him, and it’s a pretty pathetic candidate whose best case scenario is voters refusing to vote at all.

Thatisall.

    The problem is, I could say the same for Newt. The difference is that it is more disappointing with Newt because he’s better at sounding conservative…at least until he gets to the heart of things and starts making government the solution to every problem…

    Indeed, that statement is attributed to none other than Albert Einstein, who when questioned by an assistant when asked for formula. Einstein knew his theory, and where he was ultimately going
    and quite capable of deciding if a formula worked or not, to further (or refute) his current theory.

    This applies directly to the point here, if you’re on solid ground (principles) then you absofuckinglutely positively will be correct much of the time. No one is correct 100% of the time, with one exception, The L-rd our G-d.

    Romney does NOT have a handle on his core principles, that is provable by his numerous flip-flops. It’s an attribute of his personality that as a businessman that served him well there, because performance in that world is measured in DOLLARS ONLY, not how people feel about you. He’s not in that business anymore. He’s in the political world where you can make a choice, Door #1 is to be a purist in your ideology, i.e. inflexible with it’s principles always, or Door #2, where you can shift positions and come up with a strategy (hopefully for you) that you can fool large groups of people into thinking you took Door #1.

    RomMcBama chose poorly and that is becoming a LOT more obvious to his handlers and the public by extension.

    I see it slightly different. Romney is completely true to his one and only principle, he really wants to be President. He is willing to say anything, prostitute himself in any way to achieve that goal. He is more of a politician than even Obama, who at least makes a pretense of sticking to his core beliefs,

    I really have no idea what Romney believes in, he’ll change his tune from on speech to the next depending on who he is talking to and where he is talking.

    Tell me about it. When I supported him I tried the best I could to try to convince myself that his foreign policy views weren’t as wacky as they seemed. He may be a nut but he’s damned consistent nut which is more than can be said about the current candidates running for office.

    According to what I read on Drudge last night, Sen. Santorum has climbed to the top. I didn’t support him earlier, but he IS one I’ll gladly get behind. Prince Preppy Mittens DOES NOT unite or motivate the Conservative base, if he did, he’d be WAY out in front by now. The esatblishment insiders want us to have a milquetoast candidate that they can manipulate IF he wins, and that’s why they want Prince preppy.

    Not saying that I disagree, Consigliere, I too want to strangle Newt when he gets one of his idees fixe and decides to double down on stupid because it seems like a smart idea (because he had it, of course), but one thing that makes him very much different from Mittens McFakeyDope is that Newt actually knows what conservatism is, even though it seems like he forgets it at times.

    Meaning that you can call him back from the brink when he strays and force him to fess up to being a moron about such things as his, ahem, Pelosi Couch moment because he knows what you’re talking about and he has a base to come back to. Mittens, on the other hand, wouldn’t know conservatism if it jumped up and bit his school tie off.

    The hodge-podge of candidates we have to choose from is hugely disappointing, I think we can all agree on that, I have issues with every single one of them, but they all, bar one, have easily identifiable problems and aren’t as impossible to nail down on actual positions as a jellyfish.

    Paul is a nut on foreign policy, but he’s a consistent nut on that. Newt is suffering from “the smartest guy in the room syndrome” because he is smart, but “smart” doesn’t necessarily mean “right” and Santorum is, even though I, as a Christian, find myself pretty much in agreement with him on social issues, too preachy and not belligerent enough when it comes to stomping out leftism (and I refuse to ever call it “liberalism” again because it has absolutely nothing to do with it).

    When I say “too preachy” about Santorum, by the way, I’m not saying “he’s saying stuff that I vehemently disagree with”, but “he’s saying stuff that is pretty much irrelevant to a President since he has no power over these issues anyway and all it does is scare some people who’d otherwise be in perfect agreement with him.”

    Mittens McRomneyCare, on the other hand, has no identifiable principles, has made a career out of lying in a way that would make Bill Clinton blush and has done nothing, NOTHING in his entire useless career to suggest that he is even REMOTELY conservative, yet I’m supposed to believe that he’s suddenly become a rock-ribbed one magically coinciding with him wanting to run on that platform?

    Emperor Misha I growls and barks:

    And I should probably elaborate on the “preachy” bit, lest I be misunderstood.

    Understand, please, that what I say isn’t coming from some dogmatic, born into Sunday school and church every week, hard-nosed, never been anything but Christian person who’s never been on the Other Side. Not that there is anything wrong with being that, I wish I hadn’t strayed as far in my younger years as I did, it’s just adding a bit of perspective to what I’m saying because I have been there and done that and, I’m ashamed to say, actually enjoyed it quite a bit. You’d be hard pushed to find a more heathen, self-indulgent, instant gratification seeking, atheist lout than the younger version of me.

    Santorum is absolutely right when he says that gambling is bad for you. It is. It never made anybody happy, and even if you peruse the stories of Power Ball winners, you won’t find anything to deny that. They tend to end up worse than they were before, although they had a brief period of “glory” before they’d shat all of their new-found, unearned riches away. And they’re the success stories. The vast majority, as anybody with a passing familiarity of statistics will know, didn’t even have that before they’d pissed away everything they and their families owned in a vain hunt for “easy money.”

    He’s also right when he says that contraception and abortion hasn’t done anything good for us, LEAST of all women.

    Making sex a readily available commodity because there are no strings attached anymore, no pesky babies that might pop up and land you with responsibility for your own actions, all of the rewards and none of the risks, get the milk without having to buy the cow? Does anybody with enough brain cells to tie their shoes in the morning think that this is NOT the wet dream of horny young men?

    Oh, but it “empowered women.” Sure. Right. Whatever. It empowered men a heckuva lot more. With no commitment involved, no worries that the object of your lust might become pregnant, you’re free to roam as far as you like, treating women as nothing but a more advanced version of Rosie Palm and her five sisters.

    This is supposed to have helped the weaker of the sexes, the one party to the act who will end up holding the literal baby if contraception doesn’t work? How, exactly. And even more so: How’s it supposed to help the kid?

    Free Sex only gave men what we’ve always wanted: The freedom to hump whomever we could talk into it without ever having to bother with the consequences or having to treat the woman as anything more than a flesh version of an inflatable doll.

    And don’t even get me started on how much good contraception has done for inverting our population pyramid to the point where 1 youngster will have to support 4 geezers.

    The thing is: He’s right.

    But he’s not running for G-d. He’s running for president. He can’t outlaw gambling or contraception if he’s president, even if he wanted to, which I have a feeling he doesn’t. Just as I wouldn’t do either if I were president, because, apart from the lack of authority to do so, I firmly believe that people have a right to screw up their own lives as much as they want as long as it doesn’t hurt others.

    But it’s still a problem, because people who haven’t the brains to comprehend how our Constitutional system works (and who have seen Barack Hussein Ogabe ignore the concept altogether) might actually believe it when the leftist media screech and howl about president Santorum will send SWAT teams out to confiscate the Trojans in their nightstand drawer.

    Besides, what would you have him do when asked about his personal views on contraception? Lie? Is that what you want from a candidate? A slick, two-faced, liar who will say anything that you want to hear or that you think that everybody else wants to hear?

    Hey, don’t hold back. Romney is already in the race. Go pull the lever for him, because he will never, ever in his life make an honest statement if it hasn’t been properly focus group tested first.

    Ask me what my opinion about Stephenie (her parents must have been illiterate) Meyer’s “Twilight” crap is. Your ears will be burning before I’m done unloading on that worthless waste of perfectly good paper and celluloid.

    Do you believe that I, if elected president, would then immediately go on to ban her books, burn them and the execrably superficial load of crap that they’ve spawned and send her to jail, never to be heard of again? OK, I might be tempted, but if you think that I would, then you don’t really know me all that well. Not to mention that, again, I wouldn’t have the Constitutional authority to do so, which sort of renders the whole point moot.

    Funny, I don’t recall Santorum bringing the subject up during this campaign. George Stephanoplous did in that debate about a month ago obviously blazing the trail for the regime and sacrificing whatever credibility and integrity he may still have had left. The left and their enablers have been lying about what the premise is ever since and disingenuously and flamboyantly promoting that the subsidization of the purchase of a commodity trumps a natural right

    Once you say “devout catholic” that was enough for the media to start with the straw-men , misrepresentations and denigrations of what used to be construed as virtue. They have their template for such a creature regardless of whether he opened his mouth or not . The truth was never going to matter. His faith puts him directly at odds with the left’s destructive and convoluted morality a morality which has led us to the edge of economic perdition. A morality that sanctifies the aberrant and perverted and profanes the normal.

    They need to distract people from the message that the culture has a profound impact on the economy -a case that I have heard Santorum make fairly well(with the help of people like Robert Rector et al). If the link can be made that the degradation of the culture has led to our economic peril the gargoyles that have promoted this decadence can have the whole blame laid at their doorstep. It it those on the left who created this debacle and now make excuses and insist that we pay for the cultural rot they have inculcated.

    The idea that cultural conservatism is some how to be considered in a vacuum and has no impact on economic outcomes is short sighted. The left’s destruction of the intact nuclear family through welfare and the demonaztion of traditional marriage through the advocacy of gender war feminism i.e the feminazis not to mention the lifting of the stigma and shame of having to ask for help has led to all sorts of social ills that we now expend funds to alleviate . They have destroyed the fabric of society and are making us pay for there duplicity.

    The two items can’t be divorced(no pun intended) no matter how many time the RINO establishment and the main stream decrees it so. And in the case of the MSM it is only conservative who are precluded from making argument ground in morality How many times do you see the standard bearers of the NDSWP cloak their justification for why you should financially support their destruction of the society using their perverted version of morality. The answer is everyday. They justify their assault based on skewed interpretation and outright dishonesty and now for whatever reason we are now told that we cannot offer the truth as a defense?

    If this is the case then we are lost as a country and the fact that you my liege seem to buy into this is disheartening to say the least.

    What presidential candidate will say this is the reason to vote for him/her:
    :em03:

    My first act as President of the United States will to be shot. That’s right, SHOT. With a high-powered assault rifle. Immediately after taking the oath of office, I will be escorted about twenty yards away and be shot publicly in a non-lethal area of my body by a highly trained Navy SEAL sniper. It will hurt like fuck.

    Why would I do this? Because I will now be commander-in-chief of the armed forces. This means that during my term I will probably have to make some tough decisions affecting the survival of other men. And as commander-in-chief, I shouldn’t expect anyone in our military to do anything I’m not willing to do myself.

    That includes getting shot. Me being shot will be broadcast live world-wide via satellite, with no bleeping out of the incredible string of curse words I will undoubtedly let fly with. I will be required to walk/limp/crawl on my own power a minimum of 50 yards through the mud to an ambulance that will take me away to patch me up.

    If I can’t make it on my own, I’m not tough enough to be your President.

    And THIS is what our side needs to be stressing like there is no tomorrow. Don’t tell me it isn’t corrosive to society to constantly chisel away at marriage, and don’t tell me that it wasn’t one of Mags Sanger’s dearest goals. They knew exactly what they were doing when they enshined the pleasure of the individual at the heart of every coupling.

    And now, thanks to the screeching harpie brigades of Klanned Parenthood, it is now a capital “R” “Right” to be paid for by other people, as benefit of a disintegrating “social order”.

I think instead of wringing our hands about these shrinking violets and their aversion to the truth we better start worrying about why we have to hide such common sense for fear of offending these self proclaimed wizards of smart (and some of our putative allies) while they are not frightened of an openly and belligerently fascist party that promises more intrusion if they retain power.

    The fact is it doesn’t matter what Santorum said or says. It will be twisted into evidence of his nascent desire to impose the christo-fascist theocracy by the enforcers of the current secular fascist theocracy in which we now live. That narrative was written the second the media mutawwin found out he is a devout catholic.

    And a dislcaimer. I am not a Santorum backer. A lot of things trouble me about the way his faith in the past has manifested itself into a government solution however hat just may be a case that when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail

    But I have to grudgingly agree with you…no matter who wins, there’s going to be, um, TURMOIL in the streets.

    If Il Douche loses, the occutard crowd are already there and they’ve been practicing. I guess they’ll just kick it up a notch.

    If Il Douche wins, I expect that those of us who have been paying for this asshole are going to be a bit more than completely fucking fed up with it.
