If Romney could speak like Bill Whittle the Ruling Class GOP would have defeated him in the Primaries in favor of some retread politician certain never to rock the boat for the Ruling Class GOP.
If there is ever a day when Americans are being put into concentration camps be sure the Ruling Class GOP will sound outraged at the injustice and be promising to put a stop to it sometime in the next 40 years, unless the NY Times calls that harsh and hasty.
We must see the part that the GOP, as currently configured, plays in advancing the Commielib agenda. Obama has no opposition as long as Boehner and McConnell are supposed to be the leaders of said opposition. Like union bosses and union members, we are expendable to keep them in power.Posted by Scott M at November 30, 2012 2:42 AM

If Romney spoke in that manner, the first person into the Oval Office would have been a lawyer with an injunction.Posted by Peccable at November 30, 2012 4:59 AM

You do realize that outside this room, NO-ONE knows who the hell Bill Whittle is?
As he says, we lost the pop culture war.Posted by John the River at November 30, 2012 7:46 AM
We need to all man up and be Bill Whittle, and then they'll know what a real Republican is. Call them out on their own racism, sexism, etc. and stop backing down when we're right.Posted by Stephen B at November 30, 2012 11:56 AM
He sounds like Porretto's character Stephen Sumner.Posted by Flyover Pilgrim at November 30, 2012 12:35 PM
@John the River:
If Republican voters had the testicular fortitude to nominate Bill Whittle, or someone like him, that act would make him a household name. But the Republican voters must stop playing the Ruling Class game of Gotcha which throws anyone on our side that hasn't proven themself as chained to the media consultant/Ruling Class paradigm out before the first primary vote.
"We can't nominate him, he's divorced."
We can't nominate him, he lost an election 15 years ago."
"We can't nominate him, a reporter won't get a tingle up his leg."
"No, we need someone the media has told us is acceptable to some Democrats and the TV worshipers, then we are half-way to winning the election."
"We need to nominate the most electable candidate so we won't have to fight The Left."
"We'll explain some facts and then they will agree with us."
RINO politicians are an almost perfect embodiement of the large-scale cowardice inside the hearts of most GOP voters. Cowards don't vote for heroes, they vote for cowards who won't start a fight.
We have to start a political fight, throw political sand in their eyes, kick them in the political gonads, and make them politically bark like a dog in order for us to stop politically punching them in the nose and ears.
If we don't have the nerve to do that we won't win and we don't deserve to win.Posted by Scott M at November 30, 2012 1:17 PM
Hear, hear, Scott M. We need politicians who are passionate about doing right by the American people, not about invitations to toney Washington cocktail parties or favorable articles in the NYT. Surely in a nation of 300 million people, they're out there. And contrary to what Bill Whittle says about himself, I think he has the ideal disposition to be President.Posted by waltj at November 30, 2012 5:42 PM
Bill you are so wrong! With an attitude like that the people who make trouble in this world behave like normal people. It's a threat of what happens if you misbehave. But alas liberals will never understand this they built their culture of corruption and lies.Posted by bartdp at December 1, 2012 4:55 AM
If Mitt had made that speech the headline would have been "Romney says poor people are fat."Posted by hugh burns at December 1, 2012 6:21 AM
We'll Be Back.
Sure. Romney: "I'll be completely honest. I have 250 million dollars because people who had (or had control of) even more money than that thought I was the right man to throw just the right people out of work to make them even more millions than they already had."
I very much doubt that Mitt has ever picked up a tool in his life. Manual work is beneath him.Posted by Fletcher Christian at December 1, 2012 3:10 PM
Fletch, I doubt we've had a President since Lincoln who worked at manual labor because he needed to. And in Lincoln's case, it was only until he got his law practice established. (Teddy Roosevelt chopped wood, but he was a rich boy who wanted to build up his weak muscles and asthmatic lungs). But now that I think of it, when's the last time you had a Prime Minister who was anything but a professional politician? Ever?Posted by waltj at December 2, 2012 10:36 AM
