Thread: Mitt Romney as the new Nostradamus

    Default Mitt Romney as the new Nostradamus

    Is Mitt Romney the new Nostradamus?‏


    The last two weeks should go down as a period of vindication for former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and earn him the nickname, “soothsayer of the Western World” — a modern-age Nostradamus.



    On Jan. 14, Chrysler’s CEO acknowledged that Jeeps would be built in China, confirming a statement that unfairly earned Romney the moniker “liar of the year.”

    Score one.



    Then, when forces linked to al-Qaida captured the government-held town of Konna, Mali, on Jan. 10, they drove home a statement Romney made during the second presidential debate in Boca Raton, nearly three months earlier. “With the Arab Spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and — and public life and in economic life in the Middle East,” he said then. “But instead we’ve seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events.” Describing violence in Syria and Libya, he added this kicker: “Mali has been taken over, the northern part of Mali, by al-Qaida-type individuals.”



    This prompted, according to TheCommentator.com, a Bill Maher tweet: “Mitt, you do know that most of America thinks Mali is one of Obama’s daughters, right?” What far-left loon Maher doesn’t seem to understand is that it doesn’t matter if he knows what Mali is, so long as our president does.

    Score two.



    This week saw another Romney prediction come to pass — that a re-elected Obama would infringe on our Second Amendment rights. “In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of re-election,” Romney said at an April 2012 National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “As he told the Russian president last month when he thought no one else was listening, after a re-election he’ll have a lot more, quote, ‘flexibility’ to do what he wants. I’m not exactly sure what he meant by that, but looking at his first three years, I have a very good idea.” Referring to the right to bear arms, Romney told convention-goers, “If we are going to safeguard our Second Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will.”



    The president’s signature on 23 executive [orders] on gun control this week, as well as his acknowledged support for a ban on certain weapons and magazines, show how right Romney was.

    Score three.



    Finally, Romney was ridiculed for using “binders of women” to describe what a Romney Cabinet would look like. Instead of mocking the poorly worded phrase, we should have listened to the words themselves. The president’s announcement of his second-term Cabinet prompted ABC’s George Stephanopoulos to ask on Jan. 10, “Where are the women?” Apparently, they’re all still in Romney’s binders.

    Score four.



    In retrospect, this should come as no surprise to anyone. Romney is, after all, a businessman — a very successful businessman. What separates success from failure in the business world is an ability to assess a situation and to predict what will happen next.



    This is called reality. Obama’s hallmark is “hope.” See the difference?

    If one makes hundreds of predictions, some of them are bound to be correct. Selection bias. Like Robert, I am a bit too disenchanted by all of his lies to really care what he says.

    As an executive, Romney beat Obama to that one.

    I don't get how that's a score for Romney?

    Plus some of these aren;t even predictions. Like the "Score 4" item on the binders of women - how exactly does that item make Mittster a modern Nostradamus? Same for the "Score 2" item about Mali - what prediction was made? And even the other two items didn't exactly take a great deal of prognostication prowess.

    No Mitt Romney will always be known as the gun-grabbing, tax-hiking, healthcare-socializing, abortion supporting, war mongering DEVIL that he is. Mitt Romney is a peice of shit that guaranteed Obama's re-election from the start; when the media declared him the nominee before the first primary or caucus. He was the designated puppet to take the fall. Mitt Romney to me will always be a shape-shifting example of what is wrong with America.

    Any predictions he might make are the product of being such a puppet, shape-shifter, and crony-capitalist.

    Romney would have gone after guns just the same. I don't think Obama will get much. Maybe gun shows at most. He could risk his political capital on that and lose it all in 2014 just on guns. The media says Reagan couldn't get nominated today in the GOP. Well Reagan was a gun grabber and Romney was even worse. No defense of Romney is acceptable.

    Go read Nostrodomas; his "predictions" are just as vague and shitty as Romney's are, so I think it is a great comparison. Kinda works the same way horoscopes work.
