Romney scolds reporter after social-issues questions: “Aren’t there issues of significance that you’d like to talk about?”

posted at 9:41 pm on May 9, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via BuzzFeed, a fun way to end Gay Marriage Day. The key bit comes at 2:15 but watch from the beginning or else you’ll miss why he’s so exasperated. This is what I was getting at in this morning’s post about why O was willing to take a calculated gamble on endorsing SSM. Simply put, he knows Romney doesn’t want to talk about it. He’s desperately trying to brand himself as the candidate of economic recovery before Obama can brand him as the candidate of waging war on women and putting dogs on car roofs and yadda yadda yadda. Remember, their big talking point against Romney, ludicrous as it is, is that he’s the most conservative nominee since Barry Goldwater. If they can bog him down in talking about hot-button social issues instead of unemployment, they can get him to play into that impression a bit. His rhetoric doesn’t have to be strident or out of the conservative mainstream for this tactic to work; all they’re trying to do is make him look like a guy who’s preoccupied with “values” issues while swing voters are worried about jobs. And of course Romney knows it. Hence his consternation here as he’s put through his paces first on gay marriage, then in-state tuition for illegals, and then ye olde medical marijuana question. Axelrod couldn’t have scripted that any better. If Mitt never has to field another question about those topics before election day, I’d bet he’ll be just fine with it.

Two questions here while you watch. One: Why is he okay with domestic partnerships but not civil unions? Is there some principled distinction he has in mind or is that purely a minor strategic concession to pro-gay-rights Republicans? Two: Andrew Kaczynski makes a very good catch. Watch to the last seconds of the clip and you’ll hear Romney say, almost offhandedly, that gay marriage and marijuana are state issues. Is that really his official position? Didn’t he sign a pledge supporting a Federal Marriage Amendment?

That may just work for Barry. Unfortunate? Yeah, but true. As long as Romney fails to sufficiently distance himself from Obama’s policies, Obama has a realistic, if long, shot at winning in November.

gryphon202 on May 10, 2012 at 8:52 AM

Unfortunately, the Romney campaign is using the same tactics, “don’t pay attention to the man behind the curtain…” vote for our guy because he’s not as bad as the other guy. And from the insults and snarkiness of the Rombots on here against social conservatives, we’re going to wake up on Nov. 7th and wonder what the hell happened. Confidence is one thing, but this is all starting to border on arrogance now.

mozalf on May 10, 2012 at 9:09 AM

At least try to pretend that you don’t want ObaMao to re-elected in order to teach the rest of us “a lesson.”

cicerone on May 10, 2012 at 8:56 AM

I too am a little frustrated that these anyone-but-Romney posters are still pouting that their candidate didn’t win. I’ve seen third-graders with more maturity.

The best response to them is to ask how they will explain their actions to their grand children if their vote or lack of same results in giving Obama four more years to complete his destruction of the economy and the country.

Nomas on May 10, 2012 at 9:16 AM

It’s a state issue until you amend the Constitution.

EddieC on May 10, 2012 at 9:16 AM

Gosh. It just soooo hard to wrap your mind around the concept of federalism — that the 9th and 10th Amendments really meant something — that the words ‘federal’ and ‘state’ in the Constitution don’t mean the same thing. Romney seems to understand this. He just needs to find a way to explain it to the constitutionally-challenged who don’t.

gryphon202 on May 9, 2012 at 11:52 PM

The “temporary fix to a problem the Dems created” was proposed by Dems, signed into law by a Dem, and advocated for by none other than Willard Milton Romney

He had nothing to do with the original legislation which (iirc) goes back to 2010, so it is disingenuous to claim he “advocated it”.

Apparently you are okay that Romney has not taken every opportunity to distance himself from Obama that has presented itself, but “taking an issue away from Obama” is not going to convince the unconvinced that Romney deserves their vote. Quite to the contrary, it’s far easier to hold this up as an example of why Romney is like Obama as opposed to giving him a pass and reassuring us that he’s not because of other unrelated things he’s done/said. At the very least, terrible optics.

He has to pick his battles. As I already stated, he has no control over this legislation. He took an issue away from Obama who was going to demagogue it to death. It’s the hands of Congress now…

Besides which, if Romney could get away with taking that issue away from Obama, how come he didn’t do the same with gay marriage? Which issues is it okay to do that with and why?

That^ question is too idiotic to respond to.

Apparently you need a list of issues he differs from O on. Here are a few: Energy (ANWR, Drilling in Gulf, Keystone Pipeline, etc); EPA regulations and other onerous regulatory schemes; Taxes, Entitlement reform (see Paul Ryan plan); immigration; abortion; contraception as an entitlement and vis a vis religious freedom; ObamaCare; cap/cut/balance; unions; Dodd-Frank; military spending; missile defense and other foreign policy issues; GITMO; waterboarding; DADT. (I’d put an ellipse at the end but apparently that gets the comment stuck in the spam filter).

My insistence that I have every intention of voting against Obama makes no difference to you? So be it. But you’re wasting your time trying to convince me that Mitt Romney is any kind of conservative at all. The only nice things I have to say about him amount to damning with faint praise. When “he’s not Obama” is the best reason you can cite to vote for the GOP candidate, you got some real issues.

I don’t. But Romney’s supporters ignore my advice at their peril.

gryphon202 on May 10, 2012 at 12:58 AM

Really? Now you’re channeling your inner ObaMao? What other magical powers do you have? The point here is that your advice is BS. Romney is more clearly more competent than any of the 3-4 candidates you and the rest of the ABR misfits supported over the course of the past couple of months.

cicerone on May 10, 2012 at 8:55 AM

Then how come you’re shitting yourself over my disdain for him? Shut up and vote, for crying out loud, and if it works out the way you seem to think it should, you have nothing to worry about. BUT…if there’s any credibility to the numerous polls that show Romney in a nationwide dead heat, then yes, I believe introspection IS called for on the part of the Romney campaign. After all, a voter telling a candidate how to gain votes isn’t some sort of magic power — that’s how the system is supposed to work, douchebag.

gryphon202 on May 10, 2012 at 9:17 AM

President War on America might actually have someone that runs that “appears” to be Conservative.

Let’s hope Mitt doesn’t “evolve” the same way that BHO has.

Let me repeat something I said upthread since you seem to have missed it:

Romeny does at times distance himself from Obama. At other times, he does not. He should be distancing himself from Obama every chance he gets, which he is not.

Is that too simple for you? I’m not, in fact, one of the “there is no difference between Romney and Obama” crowd. I am asserting, positively, that whatever difference exists is not enough to convince those that said four years ago that they were “finished voting for the lesser of two evils.” And that is why I believe a change in campaign strategy is called for. If Mitt Romney is the kind of conservative knob polishing rombots believe him to be, you should have no problem with my desire to have him shout it from the rooftops — and yet he’s not, and yet you do. Someone is being idiotic and disingenuous here. I don’t think it’s me.

What part of “I am voting against Obama” did you miss, rombot? I don’t care if it helps Romney, I want Obama GONE in January. In order for that to happen, and happen decisively, Romney’s going to have to do a better job of differentiating himself from Obama than he has. Sorry if that has you all butthurt, but that’s the way it is.

Sore losers like you need to grow up. Let’s see if we can stop with the “Rombot” name-calling nonsense. I mean, really, is this third grade? Calling someone a “Rombot” makes you sound ridiculous.

The so-called “conservatives” who like to threaten to stay home on election day because their preferred candidate didn’t do well in the primaries are simply pathetic and self-obsessed. Anyone who roots for Obama now (as disgruntled Sarah Palin superfan ddrintn and others do) has no business calling him/herself conservative.

The real conservatives are for Romney and know must defeat Obama. Heck, any non-partisan liberal with eyes, ears and a functioning brain knows that Obama must go!

You fake conservatives who still haven’t gotten over the primaries seem to want people to now kiss up to you and treat you with kid gloves. Then, when people get sick of your non-stop pro-Obama trolling and tell you off, you guys cry like little babies about the supposedly mean way you are being treated. The funniest part is when you fake conservatives lecture those who actually want Obama defeated about how they should behave. Honestly, participating in this comment section regularly has shown me that the Sarah Palin-obsessed groupies (and I mean the really obsessed ones who don’t just like Sarah Palin but who think Palin walks on water and is the only one who can save us all) aren’t exactly the cream of the crop of Republican voters. It’s embarrassing how some of you are so obsessed with a non-candidate that you lose sight of the big picture, i.e. the fact that Obama needs to GO.

bluegill on May 10, 2012 at 9:31 AM

Romney is actually a much stronger candidate than I gave him credit for… Maybe its from the lessons learned in ’08. Sometimes I get sick reading some stuff here, what do you crazy people want Mitt Romney to be? A plausible president with reasonable policy positions seems fine with me.

Now we’re pulling the “no true Scotsman” bullshit, huh? This will really win friends and influence people, rombot.

Romney’s failure to close the deal is ROMNEY’S failure. Not mine. Not anyone who doesn’t vote for him. It is his campaign to win or lose, and given Obama’s absolutely atrocious performance so far, Mitt should be winning every Battleground poll in a walk. He’s not. And all you can cite in your defense is that some voters are supposedly being whiny and intransigent. If that’s the best you’ve got, maybe there really is nothing in America left that’s worth saving.

Gripin’202, BuyDanish just gave you list of facts. You brushed off BuyDanish’s detailed response, and then continued with your self-obsessed nonsense. Ok, so now you admit that Romney is very different from Obama (hey, you’re making progress!), but you don’t think he’s making his differences clear enough. The truth is that in every speech Romney delivers he details the failures of Obama’s record and policies and offers a better altnerative. Frankly, I don’t think any advice you have to give is worth very much. I mean, look at your history of picking candidates. It’s beyond laughable to see people who for months constantly trashed anyone who (RIGHTLY) supported Romney now act like only they, the anti-Romney misfits trolls, are in any position to dictate how Romney supporters (i.e., virtually all Republicans and conservatives at this point) and Romney himself should behave.

Doughboy on May 9, 2012 at 9:52 PM

I didn’t know “snidely” could be followed by good-natured laughing and chuckling by both interviewer and interviewee.

I live in Denver. I have met this reporter, her channel’s chief political correspondent, on a number of occasions. Her true character came out in the good-natured exchange at the end. She is fair and even-handed and tough on parties from both sides of the political aisle depending on the matter at hand. Unfortunately, it was having to pose questions from viewers on matters like gay marriage and medical marijuana that derailed this interview from matters of national importance. The Colorado legislature is in the throes of a contentious end-of-session row over civil unions right now with a governor who makes Obama seem conservative by comparison and a Denver mayor who is an Obama wanna-be and former state legislator both weighing in. And MMJ has been a blight on this otherwise beautiful state, with several municipalities (hello, Boulder?) with more pot shops on every street corner than Starbucks. If voters in a presidential election care most about these issues, then once solidly-red Colorado – site of the faux Greek columns at the ’08 DNC – deserves what it gets should O be reelected.

Captain Scarlet on May 10, 2012 at 10:00 AM

I have been ABR during the whole primary cycle. It’s time FOR ALL conservatives to rally behind Mitt Romney. Although, Romney is not perfect, he would never declare war on any American traditions. Romney is correct, it’s about the economy!

jjnco73 on May 10, 2012 at 10:02 AM

The truth is the vast majority of Americans are not gay, they don’t really care if gays are allowed to get married or not, or if they fly off to Pluto.

This is issue is a nothing issue. It is used to fire up the progressives and used to distract the conservatives. If you want to get Obama out of the White House, ignore this distraction. Romney should just say “I am personally against gay marriage and marriage is between a woman and a man”, and leave it at that.

Gay marriage is not going to decide this election…

I agree 100%. Romney has performed and continues to perform masterfully. Romney has been consistently impressive lately, even more so than usual. These pro-Obama, Romney-bashing online trolls are just looking for attention.

We have the right candidate, and now it’s time to support (with everything we’ve got!) the campaign to retire Obama.

bluegill on May 10, 2012 at 10:05 AM

I think Romney’s doing just fine, but the GOP may be missing a messaging opportunity here.

Obama’s announcement was not about votes, it was about money.

National Democrats traditionally get money from three sources – Wall Street, lawyers, and Hollywood. But the bankers detest him, and the lawyers’ pockets aren’t quite as deep as they used to be. He needs every dollar of movie and tech-industry money he can get.

The entertainment-industry types recognized that this left them with much greater leverage and told him to bend over, and after a little bit of thought he dropped trou and grabbed his ankles because he really couldn’t afford to do otherwise.

Last time I looked this was still a free and open site, however, even though it’s starting to sound more like a liberal site and these Romney yahoos haven’t taken complete control yet.

mozalf on May 10, 2012 at 10:33 AM

I *was* going to sit this election out right up until President Obama decided to ram contraception down the throat of Catholic hospitals. Now I’ll vote for Romney because he can at least offer lip service to the idea of freedom of religion and limited federal power.

Dire Straits on May 9, 2012 at 10:29 PM

I wouldn’t say he can’t. But with his campaign’s current trajectory, I don’t see him doing what it would take. On the other hand, I’m NOT above helping Romney with a vote against Obama. I’ve been called a sellout by numerous ABR’s for precisely that reason, and I’m getting it heavy from both sides because I want Obama gone badly enough to grudgingly tolerate a Romney administration. The key word there is “grudgingly,” of course, and I intend to do what I can to hold Romney’s feet to the fire just as closely if he does manage to pull off a win in November.

gryphon202 on May 9, 2012 at 10:32 PM

Still waiting for Romney to sell himself to conservatives. He’s not going to win unless he gets nearly all conservatives to find him acceptable, and a substantial number of independents and moderates. So far, they seem a lot more concerned about appealing to independents and moderates.

Refusing to endorse same-sex marriage was definitely a good move for Romney, even if he clearly wants to avoid the subject.

tom on May 10, 2012 at 12:53 PM

Is that an implicit admission that you believe Romney won’t win by being conservative? If he loses (and I believe it will be a narrow loss IF it happens), what or who do you blame then?

gryphon202 on May 9, 2012 at 10:15 PM

What is conservative anyway? I do believe that being homophobic would lose this election, but I don’t know how opposing gay marriage is conservative in 2012.

Unbelievable. Majorities in California and 28 other states reject same-sex marriage, and you can’t see that it’s not accepted?

Our society has accepted that gay people are part of society, and thus the rational conservative is to integrate them into the institutions that already exist. Conservatism is about accepting the folk ways of a society and when they change conservatism changes also.

thuja on May 9, 2012 at 10:33 PM

But to take a position against it was politically disastrous so he did the smart thing and took an issue away from O. He has no control over this law – it’s up to Congress and O to work it out. Now R can go to colleges and explain his positions and shore up their vote without this premeditated distraction.

Buy Danish on May 9, 2012 at 11:46 PM

Is taking an issue away from Obama by saying “Me too!” necessarily a smart thing?

tom on May 10, 2012 at 1:18 PM

with several municipalities (hello, Boulder?) with more pot shops on every street corner than Starbucks.

Steamboat Springs, with a population of just over 6000, has 3 pot shops. If they are all needed it sounds to me like Steamboat is the place to contract cancer. It might be smart to ski somewhere else. If the carcinogens don’t get you, the stoned snowboarders will.

What’s the first thing a snowboarder says to you when you meet?

It is clear that many people who pretend conservatism have no idea what a conservative even is.

Continuing the dislike and haterd of Romney makes you a Liberal.

Go back to the left sites and stop pretending you have any conservative leanings.

We KNOW what conservative is, and you aren’t, you are a hater for the sake of hating.

And your kind lost the Primary.

So, I don’t see why you are still here if you hate Romney so much. You belong on the left with the rest of your ilk.
