Romney: “It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments”

posted at 3:40 pm on February 28, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via TPM, a valentine from the nominal frontrunner to grassroots conservatives on the day of the big vote in Michigan. On the one hand, it is true that calling the Chinese “motherf***ers” or, say, mumbling about O’s birth certificate can get you traction with some populists who are spoiling for a take-it-to-’em campaign in November. Four words, my friends: “Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.”

On the other hand, John McCormack’s right. The reason we’ve cycled through Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Gingrich, and now Santorum as top-tier challengers to Mitt isn’t because they’ve sequentially one-upped each other in how much tasty rhetorical red meat they’re willing to plate. It’s because the base doesn’t trust Romney and will seize on whoever the most viable alternative is at any given moment. (That’s why Newt hasn’t dropped out. He’s one Santorum stumble away from being legit again and he knows it.) Look no further than the trends in national polling: Newt’s decline right after Florida almost perfectly coincides with Santorum’s surge. Anti-Romney voters simply dropped one (comparatively) conservative Not Mitt for another. What’s “exciting” them is their horror at nominating an uncharismatic serial flip-flopper whom they disdain, and who obviously disdains them. And tied up in all of this, of course, is the conventional wisdom that using “incendiary” rhetoric to win primary votes will make the eventual nominee less viable in the general by dragging him further away from the center. Given Romney’s track record of political opportunism, what would happen if you could prove to him statistically that calling Obama a socialist would attract independents in the general election instead of driving them away? Would Mitt still object to using that term on principle or would it be time for a second look at red meat? That is to say, how much of his smugness in the clip is justified by being genuinely above-the-fray and how much of it is just a pose aimed at dismissing Santorum as a cheap rhetorical bottom-feeder?

I turned Rush Limbaugh off for the first time today. Couldn’t take him anymore. I’m finally sick to death of the “core conservative values” rant that’s no better than what the OWS and freak liberals are offering on the B side. The last thing this country needs is a culture war, and that’s exactly what both sides want to give us.

Maybe more like supporting RomneyCare [like Gingrich], AGW garbage [like Gingrich and Palin] …and say, didn’t Romney support McCain’s“comprehensive immigration regorm” back in 2005? [not exactly] Why yes, I believe he did [only if you like taking things out of context].

Out of context. Riiiiiiight. And is Palin running? Didn’t you read her “Boycott Copenhagen” op-ed, at least to pick it apart for grammatical errors? Surely you saw it.

As part of the GM bailout’s complex arrangements, a UAW-owned trust was given a 17.5 percent ownership stake the car company (now roughly 10% as stock has been sold) in exchange for various concessions including the union taking responsibility for health care costs of retirees. The president today argued that with reduced hours and pay, some worker rights relinquished, and roughly 700,000 auto worker retirees seeing a reduction in health care benefits, workers indeed gave things up in the bailout.

The visit was an “official” presidential event, not campaign-related, but the odd dynamic when the president took the stage to chants of “Four More Years!” after which a labor official told the crowd, “This is not a political event.”

That seemed a questionable assertion, given how the president continually referenced Romney, defending how his moves to save GM and Chrysler demanded change and accountability. “The other option we had was to do nothing, and allow these companies to fail,” the president said. “In fact, some politicians said we should. Some even said we should ‘let Detroit go bankrupt’” – another reference to Romney’s New York Times op-ed.

The crowd booed at that reference.

“You remember that?” the president said to the crowd that clearly did. “You know him?”

“Think about what that choice would have meant for this country,” the president said. “If we had turned our backs on you; if America had thrown in the towel; GM and Chrysler had gone under.”

The president used the event to not only reject Republicans referring to labor unions as a special interest group, he painted his support of the industry as part and parcel of his campaign platform: “”This notion that we should have let the auto industry die; that we should pursue anti-worker policies in hopes unions like yours will buckle and unravel – that’s part of that same old you’re-on-your-own philosophy that says we should just leave everybody to fend for themselves….We can’t afford to go back. Not now….The economy is getting stronger. The recovery is speeding up. And now is the time to keep our foot on the gas.”

Without directly asking the UAW workers to help his re-election campaign he said, “I’ll promise you this: as long as you’ve got an ounce of fight left in you, I’ll have a ton of fight left in me.” – President Obama

“It’s very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments” — Mitt Romney

That’s the ticket, Mitt!!!

2. Open borders?? Complete BS. Santorum is 100% for building the fence and enforcing it.

3. Sotomayor?? Since when? Have a link?

4. Specter: It got us Alito and Roberts. Mittens voted for Paul Tsongsas and was an “indepedent during the time of Reagan-Bush.”

5. E verify is a good thing.

6. Unions: already talked about this under #2.

7. NCLB: Mittens was for this too!! The difference is Santorum admitted he was wrong, something MIttens has NEVER done! Santorum has pledged to repeal No Child Left Behind while Mittens has not and has stated he STILL likes parts of it!! Nice try trying to have this one both ways just like Mittens!!

8. Mittens asked for earmarks too.

And for the record:

1. Romneycare: The one thing Mittens has NOT flip flopped on!

2. Mittens had John HOldren as an advisor on how to implement carbon caps in MA.

3. Mittens DID support TARP and he also supported the Stimulus right before it was implemented!

There is no religious fervor for Romney. The same cannot be said for Palin. It’s not as if I’m the only one who has noticed this.

This has nothing to do with intellectual “superiority”, it’s the difference between people who are ruled more by emotions and those who are ruled more by intellect. Rush talks about this all the time when describing liberals. It doesn’t mean one group is “smarter” than the other, just that one group is more, well, since ddrtin brought it up…more susceptible to, er, cultish adoration. Also like, you know, Obama…

No, he sucks when he’s delusional. Which he can be at times. He is not a great strategist. He’s brilliant at explaining liberalism and smacking liberals down, and at explaining conservatism. No one does it better. But, say, when he justifies the fact a lot of people aren’t fond of Palin by saying they’re “jealous” that’s just delusional on his part. He over estimates the degree to which hard core purist conservatives can win. I don’t like his flip flopping on Romney – having called him a conservative only to turn around and say he wasn’t after nothing changed. And I didn’t like Operation Chaos in 2008. That had nothing at all to do with me. I thought it was a tacky, dishonest, unfunny move that would come back to bite us.

The ONLY reason Willard (from the RAT movie of the same name) is where he is, is that he bought and paid for Florida by LYING, LYING, LYING about Gingrich ALL OVER FLORIDA AND, for that matter, IOWA!!! RINO Romney (aka Obama-Lite) is just another east coast elitist using Axelrod tactics to eliminate the competition. It’s the Axelrod tactics that make me despise Willard (from the RAT movie of the same name)!?! The fact that he’s a (D) in (R)’s clothing doesn’t help!?!
