Video: Hey, how about Romney for Obama’s “Secretary of Business”?

posted at 9:42 pm on November 8, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, I’ve seen this idea kicked around enough the last two days that I thought I’d put it out there. Romney’s enough of a mensch that, if Obama came to him with the idea and pitched it as something to be done for the good of the country, I bet he’d seriously consider it. Notwithstanding the recent … unpleasantness:

At a breakfast on Wednesday morning for top campaign advisers and donors, Mr. Romney marveled at the Obama campaign’s ability to turn out such a large volume of voters on Election Day, though at times by using strategies that he said had unfairly maligned him.

He did little to hide his frustration and pique: he bemoaned attempts by the president and his allies to characterize him as an enemy of women, singling out advertisements that claimed he opposed contraception and abortion in all cases. That, Mr. Romney said, is simply untrue, according to those who attended the breakfast.

Would a guy who can go be a major player in business again by joining some company as CEO really want a dumb quasi-ceremonial liaison position like “Secretary of Business”? And would Obama, whose disdain for Romney is an open secret, actually entertain the idea? He just got done caricaturing Romney as a retrograde tax-cheating plutocrat who’s looted the working man through his business endeavors, and now he’s going to turn around and make him the federal government’s de facto ambassador to business? What?

You’d think from all the hand-ringing on the right and the gloating on the left that we got 35 to 40% of the vote or less for god’s sake.

People are angry and scared and they have a right to be. I am both of those things too.

We have to turn that angry and fear into something positive. We have to find a way to build an organization that is second to none.

My heart breaks for them too — but I also hope that every single one of them voted for Obama (or didn’t bother to vote). It’s only fair.

In fact, I really wish Romney’s concession speech had consisted of one line:

To those unemployed and soon to be unemployed: good luck.

But he’s way too classy for that.

Dumb Obots can’t remember that their main objection to Romney was that he was a 1% – now they’re trying to claim the man who didn’t take a salary at the Olympics or as MA Governor and said he wouldn’t take it as POTUS “needs the money” to pay for drapes. It is that kind of sociopathic intellectual dishonest that allows them to support Obama.

BTW — taxpayers spend $1.5 BILLION on the Obama family last year. That’s a lot of lobster & fancy vacays. (For comparison the UK spent a total of 500 million on the entire British Royal family in a year in which they celebrated the Queens Diamond Jubilee with elaborate public festivities).

Besides, Obama has already shown his colours. The Seals take out OBL. Obama spikes the football. His own team gets the first Ambassador murdered in more than 3 decades and he blames it on a filmmaker no one has ever heard of or seen his work.

If Romney turned things around, Obama would take the credit.

Barack Hussein Obama made it loud and clear that he doesn’t want Mitt Romney and any of his ideas anywhere near the White House. Why in hell would they then say “Hey, let’s get Romney and his ideas in here.”?

This is all just a silly ploy to get Romney in a position where they can neutralize him while the Obama democrats put their boots on Romneys supporters throats.

Alberta_Patriot on November 8, 2012 at 10:50 PM

Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them.

The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their President.

Source unknown – no, it’s not from the Czech Republic.

Schadenfreude on November 8, 2012 at 10:51 PM

Our beloved President needs to be a shining example to all of America now.
He needs to pay his fair share.
He is a multi-millionaire.
He doesn’t need all that money while millions of American children go to bed hungry every night.
I think that $250,000 per year is sufficient for him and his family to live on quite nicely.
And he certainly doesn’t need a nest egg of more than say $1,000,000 on which to live when he retires-millions of Americans would love to have that amount to retire on.

PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE, MR. OBAMA! FOR THE CHILDREN!

Letters by the millions should be sent to him imploring him to set an example.
Protesters should occupy the grounds outside the White House until he sets an example that the evil wealthy shouldn’t be allowed to live like royalty while parents are working three or more jobs in order to feed their starving children.

LEAD US MR. AND MRS. OBAMA. WE ARE YOUR CHILDREN NOW. PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE!

Bill Mayer, David Letterman, Chris Matthews and a host of other high profile individuals should also be called upon to stand up for what is right and pay their fair share also.

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.

RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

I would hope Romney is smart enough to see that. At times during the campaign, well after the primary, I thought he was way too trusting in some ways of Obama and his campaign. It was just a gut feeling on my part, and Romney may have cultivated it as an act, knowing full well what he was doing, but nevertheless, it sometimes had me worried.

I shall propose a name for this new movement. Something meaningful in a historical theme… there’s need for symbolism… anyone down for “Tea Party”?

This grassroots movement should be all about limited government, reducing government spending and taxes, stopping the rise of national debt and balancing the budget.

Let’s just make sure the movement doesn’t get sidetracked by topics such as:

- witchcraft
- abortion
- gay marriage
- vaccination
- racist outbursts
- terror babies from the future
- contraception
- Muslim manchurian candidates from Kenya
- legitimate and illegitimate types of rape
- divinity of rape babies and other odd “gifts” from god

But I digress. Yeah, the name… Tea Party anyone?

Ben Stein, David Asman and a couple of others on Fox Business actually laughed out loud at this “Secretary of Business” nonsense.

It’s a typical Obama government-centered response when the entire problem is government. HIS government.

Obama is an economic doofus who is unable to disguise his hatred for business (he literally snarls about the fact that they want “to make a profit”) and capitalism in general.

Another dopey government official isn’t going to improve a thing. Anyone pro-business will just expend all his/her effort butting heads with the Redistributionist-in-Chief.

This is what the Tea Party did in 2010:

2010 elections by the numbers:

The GOP won 24 Senate seats and picked up 6 more.

The Dems won 12 and lost 6.

The GOP won 240 Congressional seats and picked up 66 seats.

The Dems won 186 Congressional seats and lost 66.

The GOP won 29 Gubernatorial seats and picked up 10.

The Dems won 10 Gubernatorial seats, maintained 2, and lost 7.

The GOP held their own and picked up 10 seats.

The Dems lost over 680 legislative seats.

Republicans took 680 seats in state legislatures away from Democrats, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures — an all time high.

To put that number in perspective: In the 1994 GOP wave, Republicans picked up 472 seats. The previous record was in the post-Watergate election of 1974, when Democrats picked up 628 seats.

2010 was the largest seat change since 1948 and the largest for any midterm election since the 1938 midterm elections.

At the state level, no party had suffered a greater defeat than the Democrats did in 2010 since the 1928 elections.

Finally, the GOP gained majorities in 14 state house chambers. They now have unified control — meaning both chambers — of 26 state legislatures.

The whole purpose of my comment above was to point out how Tea Party started out as a movement for limited government and in a year or so turned into a movement circus of freaks bent on expanding the government into people’s bedrooms, shoving metal rods up women’s internals and probing suspicious brains in their McCarthism revival to fight imaginary rise of Sharia in America.

Then laugh when things really implode here and mega buyer’s remorse sets in among the slack jawed Obama fools who then FINALLY realize that the turd they’ve been polishing in Obama needs flushing.

I’d love to see your faces when you hear Zombieland was not in fact a documentary and belonged to the genre known as comedy. Check a dictionary.

It wasn’t Zombieland, dude.

Why do you think the Secret Service got involved?

And it broke the country. Damn brilliant job. I don’t understand why you’re even brining this up in response to my comment which was in response to starting a new movement.

If Tea Party was so great, then why after two years start a new one? The answer to which you’ll find in the same comment.

So, dude, Obama broke the country. The Tea Party just succeeded in obtaining a restraining order.

Resist We Much on November 9, 2012 at 10:08 AM

You’re mistaking your imaginary version of Obama with the Obama in the real world. It’s like when Obama promised healthcare, then became president and went though with it and conservatives were all suddenly in wtf mode.

And there’s nothing wrong with revenge by voting to counter the never-ending GOP obstruction. Again I can guess your source of confusion: When liberals talk revenge it’s by non-violent means. When conservatives talk revenge, it generally involves 2nd amendement.

Umm… First, Obama didn’t pass health care. He signed a warmed over health insurance policy into law. Good luck with getting health care if you need it.

Second, when you talk about liberal non-violence, are you talking about union headbusters trying to interrupt peaceful protests? Or are you talking about the feces-flinging OWS protesters?

Idiot.

Meh. Even if they come to power, what are conservatives going to do? Legislating morality is a loser, more so every passing day.

So they would introduce legislation of state affairs or something? or regulate business? That’s shooting yourself in the foot for a party that is supposedly for small government.

My goodness you are thick. He is warning you about the consequences of liberal policies. Just wait until you or somebody you love gets sick, sweetie. You’ll see what kind of care you’re precious Obamacare will get you.

Conservatives aren’t the party of payback and revenge; that’s you guys.

The tea party is not broken. Yes, we lost an election that we should have won, but we still have the House.

from monarchy to spiritual faith (end 1621)
from spiritual faith to courage (1621-1750)
from courage to liberty (1750-1800)
from liberty to abundance (1800-1960)
from abundance to selfishness (1960-1975)
from selfishness to apathy (1975-1990)
from apathy to dependency (1990-2012)
from dependency to dictatorship (2012- )
from dictatorship and then monarchy

.

This is the cycle of life. It cannot be stopped.

The people have voted. Full steam ahead to dictatorship.

Hey, how about Romney for Obama’s “Secretary of Business”?

BAD IDEA!!!

You already KNOW how this would work:

* Big press event appointing Romney, but (as always) featuring the Zero

* After appointment, complete lack of interest in meeting with Romney

* When business goes downhill because of Obama policies like starving the nation for fuel, raising taxes, and punishing employers, he blames Romney for being ineffective.
