Thread: Romney thinks Lincoln, FDR and LBJ were great presidents

  1. #1

    Default Romney thinks Lincoln, FDR and LBJ were great presidents

    in his Wisconsin victory speech Mitt attacked Obama for comparing himself to such great presidents as Lincoln FDR and LBJ

    this must mean Romney thinks those presidents were great

    this should be used in other states.

    Romney said he would have signed NDAA.

    That is absolutely all I ever need to know about Romney.

    Barf, barf, barf... those are like the worst presidents ever... with perhaps Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson thrown in for good measure (I'm waiting for a tiny bit more historical perspective before adding the last couple of dudes to the list).

    still surprising he said it.

    Ron should issue a statement that Obama is just like FDR and LBJ

    What Ron should do is write a Op-Ed piece hitting both Obama for comparing himself to these Presidents and for Romney thinking they were great. Get this Op-Ed out right away.

    Lincoln: Starts unncessary war that leads to 500,000+ dead Americans
    FDR: Provokes Japan into attacking Pearl Harbor, leading to 400,000 dead Americans; ships Japanese-Americans off to gulags; slaughters half million Germans in Dresden; laid the foundation for the murder of 200,000 Japanese in Hiroshima and Nagasaki
    LBJ: Lies about Gulf of Tonkin incident, which leads to 58,000 dead Americans and millions of dead Vietnamese; welfare

    I bet Romney can't wait to start another war so I can die for my country. Of course, his children will happen to be on 'mission' when the draft starts.

    Fuck you, Romney.

    ... and that's not even an exhaustive list. Just off the top of my head:

    Lincoln: more like 700,000+ dead Americans... but whats another couple hundred thousand anyway, plus the centralized banking schemes, massive corporate welfare, unconstitutional income tax, conscription, massive tariffs, imprisoning without trial thousands of political prisoners (in the North!), suspending the writ of habeas corpus without congressional approval an in direct violation of an order from the chief justice of the Supreme Court, censoring and shutting down thousands of "opposition" newspapers critical of the war/war effort...
    FDR: the whole New Deal (social security, etc.), stealing our gold, trying to "pack" the Supreme Court (by adding a whole bunch of new judges) so they would stop ruling his New Deal programs (like the NRA) unconstitutional....

    just listened to the replay; Romney called FDR and LBJ "HISTORICALLY GREAT PRESIDENTS"

    then again, his father backed LBJ over Barry

    I think Romney's top presidential choice is consistent with all he has said and written since he was governor.

    The United States is financially struggling, maybe financially collapsing, but instead of hiring economic advisers Romney hires advisers that are "war hawk" military and "domestic spy" "advisers". Romney's op-eds when he was governor were about expanding domestic spying AND growing the military NOT fixing unemployment, although Massachusetts under Romney's watch ranked 47th worst state for employment.

    The paper he submitted to show his intentions as president is a 44-page plan for, growing the military, policing other nations, world domination and expanding the government's reach legally to do MORE domestic SPYING http://www.mittromney.com/sites/defa...itePaper_0.pdf . No such plans for the economy. Just the opposite, Romney says he can't tell us his economical plan because he'd "lose" the election: http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/03...n-id-lose.html.

    I am not the least bit surprised by Romney's presidential heroes.

    My own opinion.

    Yeah, but we can gain influence by endorsing him and putting a libertarian on the ticket as VP. Don't be so rigid in some stupid purity test, it'll get us nowhere. We're working towards liberty.

    Not to spoil a good Romney-bashing (I am all for them) but he was making reference to Obama's quote in which Obama compared himself to Lincoln, LBJ and FDR. He definitely should have clarified that those three are Obama's conception of great Presidents, the way he did when he gave the line in the speech covered below.

    Obama is comparable to Lincoln, FDR and LBJ as the worst presidents, so Obama comparing himself to them was just acknowledging the truth.

    Hawkish, Keynesian, wipes his bum with the Bill of Rights... Sounds about right.

    if Romney can be used to put Ron or Rand on the ticket, that's ok

    but what if he picks Rubio or Christie?

    To dispell the ambiguity, you do mean Paul-Romney '12 and not Romney-Paul '12, right?

    No, not really. It just further solidifies that it's Romba vs. Obamney in the generals. Just like it always has been. Win/Win for the banking cartel and military-industrial complex.
