But He’s the Only ELECTABLE One!

Figures, to anybody but the Lowry/Rubin crowd of Idiotarians, that Mittens “Slash and Burn” RomneyCare would be facing some major backlash as a result of his week-long slash and burn campaign of lies and smears in order to win Florida, but don’t expect the RINOcracy MittBots to be paying any attention to that rather large elephant behind the curtain.

It also has cost Mr. Romney — at least for now — the generally likable image that he has nurtured for years. In polls during the last several weeks, the number of people who view him favorably has plunged, especially among independent voters who will likely decide the general election later this year.

In a Washington Post/ABC News poll last week, 49 percent of the respondents nationwide held an unfavorable view of Mr. Romney, while only 31 percent had a favorable one. That is a reversal from last September, when more people held a favorable view of Mr. Romney than an unfavorable one.

Independents, in particular, now have a less favorable opinion of Mr. Romney, with favorable opinions dropping from a high in the mid-40s in late November to a low of 23 percent last week, according to the Post/ABC News poll.

Yeah, we highlighted that particular bit since it seems rather important, now that we’ve heard time and time again that the base just has to shut up and eat the shit sandwich because Mittens the Fair Haired RINO of Taxachusetts is all about the Independents!!!11!1!1!

You know, “it doesn’t really matter what the worthless, dependable slaves on the plantation think, we have to get the independents.” How’s that working out for you, Mr. Electable? Because it seems to us that, even if you assume for the sake of discussion that that’s true, dropping 20 points because you’ve shown yourself to be a carbon copy of he inexcusably vile leftists among said independents isn’t exactly, how can we put it?, WINNING!

So you’ve not only managed to piss off actual conservatives to the point where they might not even bother to go vote for you in the general, much less put in any foot work for you during the campaign and trust us, you won’t be getting the pavement-pounding, phone-calling, leaflet-distributing power you HAVE to have to win out of “independents” who really don’t give a shit other than, maybe, showing up to pull a lever once every four years, you’ve ALSO managed to turn those independents away from you to the point where they might not even show up at the polls.

Heckuva job, MittBama!

And please, people, do NOT be disheartened by Mittens bringing home a pathetic win in Florida after he paid, what, $15 million for it and, on top of it, managed to alienate everybody who might vote for him in the future.

If he HADN’T won this primary after all that he (and the RINOcracy enablers) did, then he’d be over. They have no tricks left in the box and, if you ask us, good luck keeping that losing formula up for the remaining 46 states.

Mittens managed in the past to play the part of the “above it all, gentleman candidate” while keeping people’s attention off of the fact that his goons did all the wet work for him, much like a current resident of 1600 Penn Ave we could mention, but he really let his dick hang out after he got trounced in SC. That was his big mistake. And it’s what’s going to kill him from here on out.

Mittens has two options going forward in the primaries: He can either continue copying the Alinskyite tactics of the left as he did in the run-up to the Florida primary, which will cost him a fortune and, more importantly, turn more and more people away from him as they realize what a shit-flinging hypocrite bastard he is. This will doom him in the general election. Or he can try to pretend to be the old “well-mannered Mittens” who sticks only to the facts, in which case he doesn’t stand a chance because A) a large part of the electorate won’t buy it because they now KNOW that he’s a flip-flopping, lying, opportunist son of a whore and B) sticking to the facts isn’t exactly going to help a flip-flopping, lying, opportunist son of a whore.

Somebody please map out a path to victory for us based on that, because we don’t see one.

As to his “electability” based on his “moderate” creds (and anybody calling him a “moderate” after his proven scorched earth campaign of lies in Florida is a confirmed, certified, card-carrying imbecile), let’s turn to other “moderate” GOP presidential candidates and ask them how that worked out for them in the general election:

Presidents Dewey, Ford, Dole and McCain, please stand up.

Oh, wait…

Thatisall.

Here in the Sunshine state, Mittens wins by a large majority. They don’t call it ‘Floriduh” for nothing. Meanwhile the GOP establishment and the Obama Administration are giddy with glee as the media pundits proclaim that it’s now “a done deal” and Mittens will be the nominee. An interesting side note: Florida was stripped of half its delegates when they… Read more »

I’ve heard more than a few Newt and Paul supporters out there; “If Romney wins, I’m staying home on election day”. While I’m not especially passionate about Romney just yet, I’ll reiterate what an awful idea this is. Don’t go there, people. I’ve got ten suggestions for much more-productive responses.

Actually, being moderate works just fine in the general election. Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon, George H.W. Bush and George Bush could tell you that. Each one was a moderate.

Secession as we saw it in 1860-1861 will not happen again. Back in those days there was a huge political divide between North and South (with a few ‘border’ states somewhere in between). Today even the most Red of Red states is still 40+% Leftist. You won’t see a Governor or state government challenging the Federal government on anything but… Read more »

LC Xealot: I agree, and your scenario describes most civil wars throughout history. Civil wars usually feature different factions trying to take control of the government.

A brokered convention is highly unlikely. Such things haven’t happened for decades, and most people would be furious if a candidate no one voted for in the primary was nominated.
