The EFM Feature
Mountain Meadows Massacre, T.B.H. Stenhouse, 1873

I suppose 50-year-old “bullying” incidents are lurid enough.  Over at NRO, I address the Washington Post’s latest pitiful hit piece and wonder, “What if Mitt were liberal?”

    155 years ago? That’s kind of like saying that Obama is unfit to be President of the United States because his ancestors fought in the Civil War under Robert E. Lee.

    It is just showing how desperate Obama, the Democrats and the far left are becoming. It is just down right pure evil that they are resorting to centuries ago history to try and bring us down. This will also backfire on them, just watch and see. When people get that desperate, anything goes – anything.

    Politics, under a democracy, reduces itself to a mere struggle for office by flatterers of the proletariat; even when a superior man prevails at that disgusting game he must prevail at the cost of his self-respect. Not many superior men make the attempt. The average great captain of the rabble, when he is not simply a weeper over irremediable wrongs, is a hypocrite so far gone that he is unconscious of his own hypocrisy—a slimy fellow, offensive to the nose. -HL Mencken

    Someone needs to inform the WaPo that the MMM has already been so overused by the anti-Mormon crowd that bringing it up yet again only puts most people to sleep–me included.

    Well RC, plenty of things already have backfired, and all of them have been about trying to dig up Romney’s past. First of all, there is the fact that Romney’s grandfather was a polygamist, but then it was shortly thereafter revealed that Obama’s father was an abusive polygamist, who pretty much hid up the fact that he had multiple spouses at once.

    Then there was the bully/prank story, which Romney had no problem with because he had like most people resolved it in the 40 years since.

    Then there’s the whole dog story, which was even funnier when Obama failed to inform us about what like is outside of western civilization, where they serve a different kind of “hot dog”.

    At the start of it all is the simple fact that Romney isn’t Gingrich or Santorum: he has the possible insults, his past actions, and so on studied out, and now that the media is having trouble trying to point at sex, drugs, and rock and roll, they point at the rediculous.

    Looks like Obama, in a desperation move, is going to make Bain Capital the main focus of his campaign. Like that’s going to fly.

    • Brandon from NJ says:

      Well Terry, you probably know how entertaining “old news” is. But what is really interesting to me was how the campaign went haywire for almost a week over Mayor Booker suggesting some of the messages about Bain and Venture capital in general were a little over the top. Again, it says one thing when someone on your own team disagrees with you another when it’s going a little over the edge, in dealing with that disagreement. Again, it’s bothersome to me in the sense that FWIW, Booker has had some interest in trying to prompt commercial growth in New Jersey and deal with some of the issues facing the city of Newark, can’t say I agree with him wholeheartedly, but it’s a little bothersome when the other side goes nuts about his disagreement for almost a week, when they could at least ask him about what is going great regarding trying to get revenue back up, and how private equity could be helpful in that regard. What’s also troublesome is the fact that the Obama campaign team is recycling the same general methods of divisiveness and polarization that the Gingrich team tried in the primaries against Romney, it’s not good, and it is a deterrent to making genuine progress on the large scale.

        My firm opinion is that Obama is very anti-free enterprise, and believes that government control of almost everything is what this country needs. I got suspicious a few months ago when Obama stated that government would be working “shoulder to shoulder” with small businesses to help them succeed. That set the alarm bells off in my brain and they’ve been ringing ever since. Knock on wood, but I think that the only folks who will vote for Obama this time around will be those who are suffering from Acute Entitlement Mentality Syndrome (invention of new disease intentional). Obama simply does not have the financial knowledge to best Romney in dictating what needs to happen to get the country out of the fiscal mess it’s in right now. The debates between him and Romney are going to be interesting, and entertaining. I predict a cake walk for Romp-ney as far as the real facts are concerned.

  6. As you know, we have stood by Newt Gingrich since day one. We have enthusiastically supported him throughout the primary process, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be. It has been a few weeks now since Newt decided to suspend his campaign and endorse Mitt Romney for President of the United States. Newt has always been a warrior for conservative principles and the American people, and we thank him for his honor and selflessness. We plan on following his lead by publicly throwing our support behind the candidacy of Mitt Romney. November’s election is far too important to stay home or vote third party. Defeating Barack Obama in the general election will not be an easy. That is why is vital to have a united front in support of Romney. It is our hope that you will join us and Newt in our effort to defeat Barack Obama this November and to get our country back on the right track. Thank you.

      You’re preaching to the choir, here. This web site has been all about supporting Mitt Romney for POTUS since 2008. However, we’re glad you’ve decided to come on board!

    • TeejMac says:

      Delighted to have you join us. We need every single voter possible to join us, and not just passively but as actively and loudly as possible. All hands on deck, folks…
