Mitt Romney Tells the Truth, Media Recoils in Horror


If I understand the latest Mitt Romney “gaffe” he said: 1)

Palestinians have “no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and that the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish.”

and 2):

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.

I was going to respond to each of these alleged “gaffes” one by one, but then I got to thinking what gaffes?

Both statements are true and self evident. So, go Mitt!

Every one knows the Palestinians don’t want peace. Duh.

Oh, sure, they want “peace” …. if by peace you mean the “one state solution” which is just a sophisticated way of saying the utter destruction of a Jewish state in the Middle East.

There are two types of people who think Mitt got this wrong:

1) Those in utter denial of reality
2) Antisemites

There is a third camp here that is angry over Mitt’s statement. This camp doesn’t think Mitt got it wrong, which is why I didn’t include them in the above. Instead, this group thinks Mitt is exactly right, but think that it is not in America’s best interest to say this out loud.

Personally, I’m not in that camp. I don’t mind our future President being honest about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Lying to ourselves about the Palestinians has gotten us nowhere. We tried that strategy for the past 20 years, and it has failed. When a strategy fails, it’s time to change it and try something else.

Let’s give the truth a chance.

As to the second point, Mitt is right on again. Great going. More please!

Obama’s electoral strategy has always been to divide Americans into discreet interests with each interest being dependent on government largess.

Obama goes after the farm vote by promising farmers more subsidies. He goes after blue collar workers by (finally) taking on China’s manufacturing subsidies and currency manipulation. He goes after the poor by expanding WIC, welfare, and medicare. He goes after the lower middle class by extending tax breaks that only apply to them.

Any one who thinks that Obama’s strategy isn’t exactly how Mitt described it is in utter denial of the truth.

Which is why the media thinks this is a big deal. It isn’t.

They only think it’s a big deal because they are Obama partisans and liberals who think that votes ought to be bought by government largess.

The real scandal here is the media coverage. I get that Mother Jones thinks this is a scandal. Mother Jones is so far to the Left that they think Barack Obama is a mainstream conservative.

But for CNN or any other network of publication to claim non-partisanship to think this is a big deal? Sometimes the partisanship is subtle, but this time not so much.

Hat tip: Hot Air, where Ed seems to be in total agreement.

Candidate Taste Test — “R” vs. “O”


The conventions are done. It’s go time. This is the most important Presidential election in our lifetime. One path leads to Atlas Shrugs (sort of). The other? It leads to real hope. Real change. We have two months. Let’s do this!

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.

    Thank you for the post because it seems to me that if you tell it like it is, then you are the candidate who will be attacked by the media. But if you and your administration blatantly lie to the American people, there won’t be any news coverage.
    Mr. Romney, please, please think about this for about a day, you and only you, have this great. opportunity to unleash the greatest 40 day campain an American Candidate running for President of our United States has ever been involved with. Remember don’t hold back, stop being nice, show your spine and unleash a fury of truths that will continue their lie, cover-ups and backpedaling. Mr. Romney, this will be your last opportunity, so, for the Greatest County in the World, Unleash Hell!
