This is a press releases that I received by email this morning with some great points on just what lengths are being gone to for a Romney nomination.
MEDIA ELITE, GOP ESTABLISHMENT CANNOT AND WILL NOT CORONATE ROMNEY Conservatives Rightly Wary of Romney Record, Ideological Beliefs ALEXANDRIA, VA – Citizens for the Republic Executive Vice President Bill Pascoe today denounced efforts by the media and the Republican establishment to try to create the impression that Mitt Romney will be the inevitable Republican nominee for President. “Today The Washington Post featured a story quoting numerous Republican insiders saying that the race for the GOP nomination is all but over,” said Pascoe. “The first person quoted is Ed Rollins, who for a short time ran Michele Bachmann’s campaign.
His history of impolitic statements and turning on candidates for whom he has worked casts a shadow on his opinions. “Perhaps more curious – and damning – is the timing of the Post’s story. A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released today shows businessman Herman Cain leading Romney nationally, 27% to 23%. Additionally, a new Rasmussen poll released today has Romney and Cain tied at 29%. Is it really coincidence that on the very day two major national polls show Herman Cain leading the pack nationally, the Post decides to publish a story coronating Romney? Mitt Romney has been running for five years, and Republican primary voters know him well – yet 75% of Republicans still don’t support him.
This is the kind of ‘coronation’ that takes place in the Duchy of Grand Fenwick. “A vast majority of conservatives, as well as Republicans, have not embraced Romney. His Massachusetts healthcare plan is the model for Obamacare, and his record of job creation in Massachusetts is lacking. He supported the $700 billion taxpayer-funded bank bailout and believes we need to act to prevent man-made global warming. He has flip-flopped on too many issues to count, and declared in a 1994 debate with Ted Kennedy that he was ‘an Independent during the time of Reagan-Bush,’ and insisted that ‘I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.’
“Conservatives are demanding that the GOP nominee swear allegiance to certain conservative principles, including lower taxes, reduced spending, decreased regulation and the immediate repeal of Obamacare. Conservatives must not – and will not – settle for less,” concluded Pascoe.
