Gipper vs Flipper: Mitt Romney and
'The Most Dangerous Myth'

Mittens actually got the policy right at the Iowa State Fair- 
Bless his flippin' heart...

Then he got the response to the prog hecklers (factually) correct, too... corporations are indeed organizations made-up of human beings- just like Romney told 'em:  

"We have to make sure that the promises we make in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are promises we can keep, and there are various ways of doing that,” Mr. Romney said. “One is we can raise taxes on people."

"Corporations!" the protesters shouted, suggesting that Mr. Romney, as president, should raise taxes on large businesses. "Corporations!"

"Corporations are people, my friend," Mr. Romney responded, as the hecklers shouted back, "No they’re not!"

"Of course they are," Mr. Romney said, chuckling slightly. "Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to people. Where do you think it goes?"

When someone in the front row angrily suggested that "it goes in their pockets," Mr. Romney, becoming increasingly animated, asked: "Whose pockets? People’s pockets!"

Trouble is that if he had anything close to the proper level of respect for the political skill and towering accomplishment of President Ronald Reagan -or ever learned a damn thing from him- he'd have quoted the Gipper:

Reagan faced liberal demagoguery in the 1980s on the very same issue and offered basically the same answer, but also utilized the implications implicit to turn it on the other side... important to do because they're lying.

Same kind of thing Romney should be doing, or so you'd think- because this BS from the American Left is one of the basic untruths their fraudulent fantasy world us built-upon... and Reagan knew that:

"The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. 

Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...

Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business... they're hidden in the price, many aren't aware of how much tax we actually pay."

Hey, I actually like Romney's business sense, and imo an accomplished CEO fits the bill on pressing issues on the majority of voters' minds like debt, taxes, and the economy... what a shame he's a totally untrustworthy political opportunist with zero core beliefs- God knows what the guy actually believes in, if anything.

He's also playing it far-too-safe in an era that belongs more to the TEA Party everyday... Mitt Romney simply never was -and never will be- one of us--- and he's not the man of the hour, either.

The Reaganite Republican blog endorses Michele Bachmann in the Ames Iowa straw poll tomorrow... get out there and support a real Reaganite, Iowa. I don't think T-Paw has a prayer, honestly- he looked like the embittered loser that he is in last night's debate, going after Bachmann in desperation... enjoy the end of your political career tomorrow, you boring putz.

Note: big-league conservative blogger David Blount at Moonbattery.com has already stepped-up and 'enthusiastically' endorsed Michele Bachmann for President of the United States- nice.

I love Michelle, but I really think the team to beat Barry will be Perry/Bachmann...My oppinion RR for what little its worth.

Michelle more than held her own. And what a marvelous concept she has. Stay true to one's convictions and follow through on one's word! Brillitant1

It's a shame the Newtster managed to saddle himself with so much more excess baggage earlier this year as the man easily made all but Michelle look like school kids last night, including the golden boy Romney. Being a history buff, I would love to have had him as a teacher. Man, teaching and learning from history? Woh would ever think of that concept now?

Reaganite Republican said...

Well, this is why I haven't completely endorsed Bachmann- as you know I'm keeping an eye on Perry as well, but he's not running yet.

I would like to hear what he has to say, I have a couple reservations re. DREAM act, etc.

But I consider his jobs record pretty much unbeatable... by anybody in either party, and that's what Americans want- BAD. He's also an actual fiscal conservative... that should keep the TEA Party happy enough.

In summary- I agree, Randy... but a Bachmann with a victory in Iowa brings more to the table as VP, too... jmho

GO Michele!

Good Ole Boy said...

Michele Bachmann is the real deal. Perry has the Dream act, and the One World Bilderberg connection tainting him. The others can't hold a candle to Michele on convictions or knowing what the TAXPAYERS want. If only West would team up with her it would be a dream ticket.

Reaganite Republican said...

I would love for nothing more than Bachmann victories in Iowa and New Hampshire... she's probably the best on in the world to ask Perry about all these nasty things in debate, and ideal scenario for us- let's get it all out there, I know Michelle's positions like you say, Good Ole... she's THE REAL DEAL

That said, Perry will take a lot of Romney vote and be formidable from day one, imho- I would love Perry, Bachmann, and Flipper debates for a few months, cool with me!

Mark Adams said...

I am not hanging my hat on any post, just yet.

Bachmann is a true-blue stanch convictionist. But will she be able to break the long standing history of a Representative not becoming President?

Reaganite Republican said...

That's a concern, agreed- that and a resume thin on executive experience, voters might not like that after how Obummer worked out

I liked Ronald Reagan - but even Reagan knew how to compromise. If you check historical fact, even Reagan pragmatically chose to compromise on debt issues with Democrats and even House Republicans who were inflexible ideologues. Despite Reagan's distaste for debt, the U.S. had a higher debt at the end of Reagan's two terms that it did when he took office. So let's be careful we don't advance a mythological version of Reagan that he was somehow infallible.

Michelle Bachmann is not only lacking intellectual capacity to be President of the United States, had she been the President of the United States or had more say about the recent debt crisis, she would have let the U.S. default - a completely irresponsible and reckless thing to do (her own comments substantiate this).

I agree the United States needs to reduce and ultimately eliminate it's annual fiscal deficit and total accumulated debt, but the U.S. also needs a leader who understands, as did Reagan, that you govern all people and are responsible for not just those who voted for you but also those who didn't. Power can ultimately be a sobering thing - it's easy to be express your "Tea-Party" driven conservative orthodoxy when you're running a campaign, it's very different when you actually have to take an oath to uphold the Constitution.

I'm not sure who to support, now that Perry's in it...but I'm certain I don't like Romney

Reaganite Republican said...

Me neither

Reaganite Republican said...

Hey Anon, you complain about Bachmann 'not representing all the people' and 'unwilling' to compromise?

Where's the outrage on the CURRENT administration?

If you were genuine, that's what you'd be complaining about... I've never felt less represented by a president in my life, good grief man.

And the TEA Party isn't basing their agenda on some numbers plucked out of the clear blue sky, unlike the Left... thus, they're the only ones in the country actually willing to admit the scale of the problem.

Fact is, this is an out of control debt crisis of such scale that it's utterly incomparable to anything Reagan was dealing with... and you know it.

Slam-dunk! From ancient time to present day the common man always pays the price. Those who scream they want the rich to pay their fair share are living in a fantasy world.
