Mitt Romney, loser extraordinaire, slammed Ted Cruz for saying this:
“If this deal goes through, the Obama administration will become the leading financier of terrorism against America in the world.” He also said:
“I’ve heard this referred to before as the ‘Jihadist Stimulus Bill.’ ”
Romney tweeted that Cruz is “hurting the Cause”—meaning the cause to stop the Iran deal. Guess he doesn’t know that’s just about impossible, after the passage of Corker-Cardin, months ago; now it’ll take two thirds of both chambers to do it.
But: is what Cruz said not absolutely, incontrovertibly true? Lifting the sanctions gives Iran billions to promote terror—their country, if you can call it that—is the planet’s chief sponsor of terror. And their mission is the dissemination of their terror revolution throughout that planet. Iranian influence is already in our own hemisphere, in Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela; Iran and Hezbollah in Peru. Oh, yeah: their other mission is “Death to America.”
It’s not enough that Karl Rove was smearing Trump for speaking out on Fox, the other night, with that blasted whiteboard of his. Not enough that the other candidates (excluding Carson and Paul) are lambasting Trump and Cruz; it’s not enough that Fox News and the WSJ criticize the only candidates who address the issues that really upset America.
We also have to listen to the losers in the last 2 presidential elections try to silence—there’s no other word for it—the few candidates who speak the truth, who even know the truth; the only people who might do something about the issues that have us screaming at the TV night after night after night.
We’re sick to death of hearing how our president unconstitutionally legalizing 4 million people who snuck into our country in the dead of night (and promises to do more). We’re sick to death when we hear it’s going to cost $2 trillion, over their lifetimes, to support them. We’re sick to death to hear, almost daily, that an illegal has murdered an American. And if an illegal doesn’t kill someone, a jihadi does.
Back in December, Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee raised a fight in the Senate to stop Obama’s amnesty, and RINOs like Kelly Ayotte whined about working on Saturday; she wanted to take her daughter to see the Nutcracker. Sen. Bob Corker complained he had to cancel his official trip to Iraq and Turkey that weekend. Other whiners were Susan Collins, the RINO Queen, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Hatch, Flake—22 in all.
After the GOP-controlled Senate was seated in March, the RINO King, Mitch McConnell, ably assisted by top Senate RINOs, Corker, Cornyn, et al., made sure they funded the amnesty, when they didn’t have to.
Do they have no conception of who the enemy is? No idea how destructive that amnesty is for the country? If not, then they are the enemy.
Which brings us to Mitt, who wants to insinuate himself into the Republican primary race—clearly for a RINO and against the conservatives. This is the guy who took advice from Obama’s strategist, Axelrod, and didn’t use in his campaign Rev. Wright’s allegation that Obama had offered him a $150K payoff; the guy who wouldn’t mention Stanley Kurtz’s report that Obama had joined the far, far Left “New Party,” in the ’90s. That’s why Romney lost—taking Obama for just another politician. A Black one, that he shouldn’t criticize too much.
Even today, after the near-mortal destruction Obama has visited on America: dividing the nation racially, degrading the military, sucking up to our sworn enemies: Iran, with whom he negotiated a lopsided, boot-licking treaty, and the Muslim Brotherhood, whose acolytes he appointed to DHS; after he made an adversary of Israel—and even after he unlawfully legalized 4 million illegal aliens—even now, he said on Fox’s “The Kelly File” that Obama loves his country. Kelly squandered an entire hour asking how Mitt would use his formidable fundraising powers to help a candidate; Can you guess which one?
She also asked what Mitt thinks of Obama. That’s what he thinks: Obama loves America.
This is the man who proposes to teach the new crop of candidates what to do. The only thing Romney can teach them is how to lose.
If they want to know how to campaign, here’s a one-sentence piece of advice: Just do the opposite of what Romney and McCain did, and fight your opponent. BTW: The Democrat candidate is your opponent, not conservatives. Sorry: that’s two sentences.
