Dana Milbank chides Mitt Romney for not riding to the rescue of the country that just rejected him. WaPo hack Milbank is annoyed – Romney is taking a job with Marriot Intl instead of helping the First Golfer “fix” the crisis he and his fellow grifters created. “Are you an idiot, Dana Milbank? Barack Obama just spent a year calling Mitt Romney a bully, a felon, and a murderer. Why on earth would Romney lift a finger to help Obama after that?” Fear not, we’ll help you with some advice, Mr. President – try angling that putt a little to the right.

George Bush is a dwindling figure in America’s rear view mirror, so it’s becoming increasingly difficult for Obama to blame the wretched economy on him. He needs a new scapegoat and Milbank apparently believes Romney will do nicely. Mitt would be wise to avoid the trap.

Milbank is a scumbag and a worthless political hack.

Last night Juan Williams blamed Bush and Hannity told him to stop it, he is sick of it and I cannot blame him.

Juan Williams seems like a very nice guy, but still does’nt understand that the those he supports are the very same people who cheered when he got the boot from NPR. His liberalism trumps his intellect too often, & I’m just waiting to see what it will take to make him see the light rather then keep walking toward it.

Dana Perino made a point that she was highly surprised that he was supporting PBS (which I assume is associted with NPR?) when the whole “Big Bird” thing happened. If indeed PBS is associated with NPR she made a good point. It is insane to me that he was the victim of liberal bias and hatred and he still is drinking the kool aid. It is insane.

I also want to ask again, why is PBS/NPR legal? If VOA is illegal here because it’s about broadcasting propiganda to repressed nations, could’nt NPR/PBS be considered the same now?

“The historical cycle seems to be: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependency; and from dependency back to bondage once more.”

Nobody can find any work by Tytler with the Fatal Sequence quotation, and it appears to be original to Prentis. ( Henning Webb Prentis, Jr.)

this info from wiki.

I had to look up your reference because I had never heard of Tytler, after a quick read through, seems Tytler had a rather gloomy view of democratic republics, and chilling also, considering what is occurring today.
“Nor were the superior classes in the actual enjoyment of a rational liberty and independence. They were perpetually divided into factions, which servilely ranked themselves under the banners of the contending demagogues; and these maintained their influence over their partisans by the most shameful corruption and bribery, of which the means were supplied alone by the plunder of the public money.”

Yes he is a Christian (one can argue that so any Mormons aren’t Christians comments aren’t necessary here) and he is a good person and would like to do something for the country. However and first off, he needs to be asked just as he was asked to help with the Olympics. However, he cannot come in and be a puppet and a tool in Obama’s roster either. If he comes in to fix problems he has to have the authority and all the resources to make it happen. Talking nonsense for the sake of Obama is not going to cut it when he can be making money for his great grandchildren so they aren’t poor and destitute and government supported like Obama wishes everyone was.

Disagree. One can make arguments that the denomination of Mormonism is not a Christian denomination. However, a Mormon will disagree and they can make strong arguements that they do agree AND practice the Christian philosophies. Considering a lot of the facts of the practices of present day Mormons, I cannot say that their arguments are baseless. One can disagree but they aren’t baseless.

If Romney’s religion was an issue, & voted for Obama, or you did’nt vote for him, which was a vote for Obama as well, I really don’t know what to tell you. Mormans have never been an issue in my life up to this point. I have known a few, & never had an issue. They go about their buisiness, come around once in a blue moon to talk to me about faith, & I thank them for their interest & move on. They are the opposite of progressives who want to control all aspects of your life.

BTW, if you voted for Ron Paul, you really voted for Obama.

@ KQ & drb,

I was speaking in general. I kept reading/seeing/hearing that Romney’s LDS faith was going to be a problem. I don’t know how it could be. Moroman’s are near the bottom of my list of what’s wrong with America. Harry Reid seems to be the only peice of crap I can name that is LDS.

Mormons believe that God is scrutable[65] and anthropomorphic.[66] In contrast to traditional Christian notions that God is omnipotent and omniscient, modern Mormons regard God as governed by natural law
Unlike traditional Christianity, Mormons since the 1840s have believed that God is changeable. They believe that the Father (like the Son) was twice “born”—once as a spirit, and again as a mortal man.[55] After he lived a mortal life, Mormons believe that the Father died, was resurrected, and achieved his godhood[56] along with at least one wife whom Mormons refer to as the Heavenly Mother.[57] The Heavenly Father and Mother then gave birth to the spirits of humanity through a sexual union.[58] Modern Mormons believe that Jesus, the Son, was the first born of these spirits
furthermore; m’s don’t believe in Christ alone as the mens of salvation, hence the argument that they’re Christian is baseless.

This is of course going into the dogmatic and religious part of the Christian philosophies. Of course one can go to the actual Bible and find that their dogma and religion can in many many cases completely go askew and away from what the Apostles and Disciples and even (and most importantly) Christ Himself said or did. I was speaking of the actual actions that can be considered Christian in nature and that the reason they say they act that way is because of Christ, which then makes them disciples of Christ and if so then they can argue they are Christians. Listen I UNDERSTAND the serious differences in dogma and religious meaning and of course the history of Mormonism, their leader and where they come from. I myself have a great deal of difficulty harmonizing that, because I do believe that on dogma and religious aspects, their history and their mystery, Mormonism SERIOUSLY deviates from my own denomination and well in all truth most denominations of the Christian philosophy. They are in many ways the outsider. This is really an argument that has gone on for ages now. Like others have said, considering their actions and how they don’t… Read more »

Paul spoke of being all things, to all men, (tis a paraphrase, I’m working from memory) so that he might save some,
and he was glad that Jesus’ name was being spoken throughout the world.

I make no mistake, I believe on Jesus. I understand what you’re saying but these feelings, that ppl have, that we call decency, morality being a good person, can not be relied upon for anything. these people who deny that Jesus is whom he said he is will be burned away. My opinion notwithstanding.
I’d tolerate mitt a lot more than barry, but he was by no means my 3rd choice for pres.

because he’s about as conservative as he is a disciple of Jesus. but compared to barry, world’s apart, i grant you, and applaud your above response. Definition of terms is ALWAYS important. Would you agree?

Exactly. If people want someone to fix the situation, but do not support the person and the person fails to get into the position to do something about the situation at hand, they have no reason to complain when the person doesn’t do anything about the situation at hand. He wants Obama for whatever nefarious reasons to be the one in charge and in front of the curtain, but then he wants Romney to be really in charge (?) but BEHIND the curtain. Odd… So is he saying that Obama is only good to be a front person?

Classic example of damned if you do and damned if you don’t. If Milbank felt so strongly that Romney could fix or help fix the mess barry created she should’ve said so about two months ago. A last she fell in line with the rest of the dim wit journalist and back ol barry. Now it’s time to admit that it’s all his mess and his alone.

Why should Romney step in to assist only to get nothing but grief and blame from the fools on the left.

From your stream of posts, purported motivations, and site ID one can only conclude that you are one of the following:

1) Naturally unintelligent and lacking critical thinking skills
2) 1985 was the year you received your first lobotomy
3) You are a useful idiot for the leftists and unknowingly doing their bidding
4) You are a leftist PAID useful idiot and stalking this site and agitating with idiotic posts on purpose, to distract from the real issues
5) You are a true commie believer, self motivated

If you are unfortunate enough to be in category 1) or 2), my sympathies. You are easily led by persuasions from the leftists and they are taking advantage of you. You know not what you do or say, really.

I suspect though, that you are really a CAT 3 to 5 communist idiot, hardwired/brainwashed, financially motivated, or doomed by poor reasoning to specifically avoid critical thinking skills and spout the party line.

“Tell General Howard I know his heart. What he told me before, I have it in my heart. I am tired of fighting. Our chiefs are killed; Looking Glass is dead, Too-hul-hul-sote is dead. The old men are all dead. It is the young men who say yes or no. He who led on the young men is dead. It is cold, and we have no blankets; the little children are freezing to death. My people, some of them, have run away to the hills, and have no blankets, no food. No one knows where they are—perhaps freezing to death. I want to have time to look for my children, and see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”

Whyinell does this Milbank buffoon think Bozo would even accept Romney’s advice? He’s consulting with those economic wizards Al (Notso) Sharpton and Ratshell Madcow. At least compared to an idiot like Bozo, they are wizards. Besides, what does Romney know, he has only run multi-billion dollar operations with huge numbers people and pulled a socialist bankrupt state’s nads out of the fire as governor. Now if he was a community agitator in some shithole politically corrupt city, there would be some real qualifications.

I mean am I the only one loosing my mind right now (reading this crap)?: “It’s understandable that Romney would now feel like shrinking from the scene: He offered the people a choice, and they chose otherwise. But this is a crucial time for the country and particularly for Romney’s Republican Party, which must unshackle itself from the far right or become irrelevant.” If it is understandable then why bother with the rant freak?
