Mitt Romney Afriad Of Questions??? You BET He is!

This is a Jon Huntsman ad attacking Mitt Romney for running away from tough questions from the media and from voters. Huntsman’s ad uses odd music to accompany video of Mitt Romney running, interspersed with clips talking about Romney not appearing on news shows, or taking questions from voters. The ad suggests Romney is afraid, using the phrase “scared Mittless.”


Wild Thing's comment......

This is interesting to me because on "Special Report with Bret Baier" weekday show at 6:00p.m. he has had each candidate on his show. Each of his panel ask the candidate questions then Krauthammer gets to say what they think to the candidate. Then at the end Brett plays some funny video of that particular candidate. So far several of them have been on Ron Paul, Bachmann, Newt ( Newt was on last nighit).

Rick Perry is scheduled as well to be on the show.

Guess who has refused to be on the show......ROMNEY!!!

Regarding Herman Cain.... it is a he said she said....she said he said....thing. Apparently there are more women, and his smoking gun man on his team went on Hannity last night and said a son of one of the women accusing Cain worked for Politico. That turned out to be a lie. sheesh They just won't stop with the lies and it sure looks like the Cain team want to keep it going. I think Cain himself would like it to stop but who knows.

I like that: Mittness Protection Program.

If Mitt doesn't take any questions or do any interviews, he can't be held accountable for his words. I wonder if he would vote "present" if he were in congress?

Friends of Theodore's World,

Mitt Romney will not be the Republican nominee.

Why ?

Because 25% of Republicans at most support him.

That's his ceiling, that's it.

Which means 75% of Republicans don't.

That is my ONLY take away from any polls taken so far or prior to the holiday season.

So Mitt Romney wins New Hampshire in January. Big whoop.

He won't take Iowa, or South Carolina or Florida later in January, and more significantly there are 46 other state primary elections through late June !

Conservatives, comprising as much as 75% of the Republican electorate, will naturally vote for conservative nominees.

The conservative vote will incrementally, primary state after primary state, delegate by delegate, consolidate pretty much behind two conservative Republican contenders with the majority of all the party delegates.

Unlike Democrats, Republicans tend to fall in line eventually.

At or before what will be a hot and humid August convention in Tampa, Florida, the one conservative candidate trailing will pledge or release his delegates, most of which will then rally behind the one leading conservative nominee.

In the convention tally, I don't think it will even be close with Romney garnering less than a third of all delegates. He got only 12% four years ago.

In 1964, many Americans thought moderate Republicans Henry Cabot Lodge after winning New Hampshire or Nelson Rockefeller after winning West Virginia and Oregon would be the Republican nominee.

It was not until the last primary election in June, that conservative Barry Goldwater won California and became the Republican nominee at the Cow Palace in San Francisco.

Again, unlike Democrats, Republicans tend to fall in line eventually with the best qualified and most experienced to be the party's candidate for President, the one candidate with the best resume.

With time, it will all play out this time around, too, and as Wild Thing has well written and concluded point by point after point by point for months here (and I since May), that candidate is Texas Governor Rick Perry.

It's not that complicated.

-Unless of course you think that polls cast votes in Republican primary elections, which they don't; or nominees are decided in private smoke-filled rooms, which they aren't; or the talking heads on television and radio know more than Republican voters, which they don't; or the last mid-term elections of November 2010 were meaningless, which they weren't either.

Conservative Republicans love their country. When called upon, Republicans declare themselves, "Present". Republicans show up. Republicans vote. -Now more than ever.

These are the driving factors. Doubt this electoral analysis if you will, but I feel confident that

Rick Perry will be the 45th President of the United States in a closer popular vote than a resounding state by state decisive electoral college vote win.

You can't blame Romney for ducking questions. After all his was the 47th Governorship in the nation while he Governed Massachusetts. Even with his ego he realizes that third from the bottom is not good. The Question is who is pushing Mitt Romney. They are not friends of the Republican Party or America.
You can make a case for Perry over Gingrich’s better history on the grounds of being a better man or Cain's better story. Even Huntsman was a better Governor and as a foreign policy wonk is near super star status in China. But the only reason to back Mitt is to reelect Obama.
