    Will we ever get around to vetting Mitt Romney?

    Will we ever get around to vetting Mitt Romney?

    Newt Gingrich appeared on the Mark Levin Show last night to address a variety of issues.  Levin has been pretty harsh towards Newt at times in the past. Thanks to The Right Scoop for the audio:

    I find it very interesting that while Gingrich is more than willing to go on shows where he will be challenged, such as Fox News Center Seat, Mitt Romney has stayed away from situations where he can be questioned.  As reported by The Boston Globe:

    Mitt Romney has not appeared on a Sunday news program in 20 months. He has held only a handful of events in recent weeks at which the public was allowed to ask questions….

    While Romney has participated in nine presidential debates and nearly 20 town hall meetings, he has stayed away from traditional campaign settings such as Sunday talk shows and avoided extended interviews with much of the national media.  Instead, the campaign has sought to control its message and reach targeted audiences by using social media tools such as Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook. The strategy is designed in part to lower the odds that Romney will make the kind of gaffes that have subsumed the campaigns of other candidates.

    Had any other presidential candidate pulled Romney’s hiding act, that candidate would be skewered. (As Sarah Palin was for the past three years by people who now are Romney supporters, even though she was not running for President.)

    As I pointed out in my post yesterday, Romney is not being scrutinized or challenged by the media during the primaries.

    We are in the absurd position that the one candidate who most needs testing because he is the most likely nominee is the one candidate the media ignores as it devours his opponents.  Buyer beware, we are being fed a false narrative of Romney electability.

    I also pointed to a Chicago Sun-Times article arguing that when Romney was at Bain he used a “plunder” strategy for a number of companies.  This is a theme Ted Kennedy used against Romney quite successfully. While new-found Romney supporters like Ann Coulter claim Romney came close to defeating Kennedy, in fact Romney was trounced because the anti-Bain theme worked.

    Here’s an apparently unaired anti-Romney television ad which reflects the theme used by Kennedy to defeat Romney, and which will be used the Democrats in 2012:

    Yet none of this Bain history has been examined so far in the primaries. The media has taken to digging up rocks to find dirt on Rick Perry, shaking complainers out of the trees against Herman Cain, and trying to sully Newt with innuendos about his consulting business, but Romney remains unexamined.

    It’s not that the media hasn’t done it’s job; it’s doing its job of electing Obama quite well by holding its fire on Romney until it is too late for Republicans.  Major Republican and conservative journals that support Romney are equally complicit, as it is in their candidate’s interest to portray everyone but Romney as unelectable.

    Unfortunately, I’m not sure that the other Republican candidates have the resources to do it, but you can bet the Obama campaign does and has.

    To nominate Mitt Romney without a thorough vetting in the primaries will result in a general election disaster.

    Look, first of all, there is no perfect candidate, let alone another Patriotic Constitutional Conservative Ronald Reagan, in the current field of candidates.. So, with that being said, Newt, with his his warts and all, has all of his 38 years of political career baggage, and or laundry, all out there in the open, for all to see.. His accomplishments, and his msitakes and flaws.. So, the people can decide whether or nnot, they want and like Newt, over the other candidates, at America’s helm, as the next US President. Especially with major economic, political, social, and international world affair issues at stake, and on the table, the next President will have his or her hands full.. which Newt is more than qualified to handle..

    But, the same cannot be said of Romney, which in fact, the opposite is true. Romney is almost like Obama in may respects, as he hides everyuthing controversial and negative, and them lies abour them when asked.. He is so much like Obama is many regards, character and political tactics, it’s often hard to tell the difference.. and the MSM, refuses to vett Romeny, like they refuused with Obama.. why, because if there is one thing the liberals like more than a Democrat in power, it’s 2 Democrats in power.. In other words, when the candidate on either side of the political race, is of the same stripes, and agenda, then it’s a win win situation either way for the liberal agenda.. That’s whay they hate Costitutional Conservatives, like Reagan and Palin, as they could not be bought or corrupted, unless they quit, like Palin, and so doing, Palin did the liberals job for them.. knocking herself out of the potential to be the US President..

    So, this also why there is a split in the Republican party, the standard bearing Republican Party establishment of Bush, Rove, Romney, Christie, etc.. and the Tea party Constitutional Cosnervatives like Marco Rubio, Jim DeMint, Michele Bachamnn, Paul Ryan, etc.. This is where the line has been drawn in these 2 factions of the Republcian Party. But the Tea Party represents the faction, that represents the Will of the People, not the Will of the crony politicians, which is main the difference.. and that is why the far right crony capitalists like Romney and Christie, are backed by the establishment Republican Party.. But the question is, is Newt part of the Republican Party establsihemnt, or the Constitutional Conservative Tea Party faction.. It would seem he is now Part of the Tea Party, that represents the people, which is why he is now, the frontrunner, comared to Romney, who is backed by the liberal establishment, and is why Romeny is not being vetted, and is why Newt is being attacked and vetted, and the target of the Democratic attack machinery, as well as the Republican Right attack machinery, ie; both sides.

    This is the truth, as the people have been the targeted enemey since Obama’s election as US President, then reinforced by Pelosi and Reid of the 111th Congress, then made even more evident after the 2010 mid-term elections, from both sides of the political aisle. So, it is no surprise that they, the Obama left and the RINO right, have teamed up to cooridinated a media attack against Newt..
