Mitt Romney Wanted to Build a Fence—Who Knew?
You learn something new every day.
First things first: Being a conservative, I voted for both McCain and Romney. I voted for McCain because of Sarah Palin. I didn’t like McCain. I remembered how often he had cuddled up to liberals and to me, …no matter what kind of ‘hero’ he was in the past, he was not to be trusted. He was part of the elite, and if he had not gotten Sarah Palin to help him out at the end..the GOP loss in historical records would have been embarrassing. Sarah Palin, in my opinion, saved his career.
I voted for Romney…simply because I couldn’t stand Obama, not because I was excited about him.
When I look back in my memory on the debates between Romney and Obama, I draw a blank. In fact, I draw a blank about Romney in most any memory that I have of him. Why is that? I’ve always thought, the Bushes tried to destroy Romney’s chances because THEY wanted Jeb to run, and if Romney had become President, Jeb might not have had the chance to get the Bushes back into power.
Perhaps this blankness it not due to his lack of a personality..And let’s face it, Romney was not really uplifting in any way, shape, or form. You could have put a cardboard cutout on stage and a recording and it would be about the same.
But. perhaps there IS another reason that I draw a blank when it comes to Romney…the press, and everyone in it, made sure that America didn’t know much about Romney, because they controlled the image we got of him.
They are doing the same thing to Trump now, only on steroids.
For instance…did you know that Romney was against immigration? I didn’t.
Fact: Governor Romney was labeled “mean spirited” for vetoing the bill to give illegal’s in-state tuition. Romney invited the press to his office to show that that would cost the state millions of dollars a year.
Fact: Romney was the only presidential candidate ever to support E-Verify and a fence on the border, unequivocally. John McCain said that was his ‘biggest mistake.”Romney said they would “self-deport” themselves. “I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I heard that, because you can’t have eleven million people self deport.” said McCain.
Fact: Romney didn’t back away from his immigration stance, despite the Bush family, Rupert Murdoch, and everyone other republican coming out to attack him on it.
Fact: Numbers USA gave Romney a C-plus on immigration.
Fact: I don’t remember even hearing Romney’s very Trump like views on immigration. Did he just keep quiet about his stance? OR…
Did the media just keep Mitt’s stance on immigration, laying on the editing floor?
I just read about this in Ann Coulter’s book, Adios America…
“Americans love to mock the French for rolling over for Hitler, but at least they had Panzers rolling through Paris. America has chosen to do nothing as our country is taken away foam us without a shot fired. The endless flow of needy immigrants is soaking up every last dollar of government aid, every low wage job, every hour of assistance, every quantum of charitable giving. After all the country has been through only since 9/11–two wars, repeated terrorist attacks, the housing crash, widespread unemployment, and under employment—America needs to worry about Americans. How much is the price of guilt for having a successful society before we’re entitled say to say to the poor of the world. Enough! We gave at the office.
Immigration, is what hurled Trump to the top. It seems Romney had the same stance on immigration that Donald Trump did.
Ann Coulter is right:
“Democrats have no choice but to keep pushing to admit ever more poor immigrants. They can’t win without the votes of the Third World. “
Yes…immigration will turn America to a third world country…and we are half-way there. What matters all the other subjects if we have no borders?
Trump says…we either have borders, or we are not.
What I’m trying to say is, if the media can influence how you feel about ANY candidate, than you have one option to the propaganda:
Change the Channel….and go with your gut. And realize that Trump is doing the right thing: Mitt Romney was a nice guy.
We don’t need a nice guy…we need…Trump.
