Sam Brownback Shames Mittens

Mitt RomneyIt’s always good to hear from Senator Sam, the principled, conservative Republican, especially when he’s taking the charlatan Willard Mittens Romney to task.

Bob Dole had recently asked Rush Limbaugh to lay off John McCain. And Mitt chimed in, unflatteringly, on the former Kansas Senator:

As I noted earlier, Romney said on “Fox & Friends” this morning that Dole was “probably the last person I would have wanted write a letter for me.” He added: “I think there are a lot of folks who tend to think that maybe John McCain’s race is a bit like Bob Dole’s race. That it’s the guy who’s next in line, the inevitable choice.”

Smart move, considering that Kansas is voting today. Best way to win? Attack a former and beloved Senator. Smooth with a capital smooth. Sam Brownback struck back:

“I was disappointed to see Governor Romney’s desperate attack on Senator Bob Dole, a great Kansan and an American hero,” Brownback says in a statement issued by McCain’s campaign. “Governor Romney’s campaign is fading and this outburst is the latest in a long series of contradictory statements that remind us of his confused political views. I call on Governor Romney to apologize for his disrespectful comments.”

Bob Dole - War HeroTake that, Mittens! Apologize. Stop attacking war heroes. Where were you during the war? That’s right, in France eating brie. Ha ha, Mittens! You also lost West Virginia to Huckabee. Even West Virginian John Cole is celebrating.

Mitt Romney is unwise to burn bridges like he does. He’s got negatives as high as Hillary Clinton, so when he tries to go negative, it inevitably backfires. There’s no way that he’s the second choice of either McCain or Huckabee supporters. He’s spent a fortune attacking his rivals. If this thing goes to the convention, supporters of candidates other than Oven Mitt will rally around anyone but him. Congratulations, Willard. It couldn’t happen to a slimier guy.

  1. Alright, b4b, I need to get something off my chest. It’s about my whole hatred towards religion, so I hope each of you takes the time to read this.

  3. Sam Brownback, a McCain supporter

    McCain supporter

    So, guess who your honorable Mahoganyback DOESN’T support? What’s that? Absolutely, he doesn’t support Mike “I WANNA REWRITE THE CONSTITUTION TO THE BIBLE” *uckabee!

    Guess what? Brownback doesn’t want to Jesus-ify everyone! YOUR ENTIRE ARGUMENT IS INVALID.

  4. Did you even read the post? We announced a long time ago that Sam Brownback chose to endorse McCain. So what? We each have to make up our own minds. At this point, anybody but Mittens would be acceptable.

    Sam Brownback would be fine with either a McCain or Huckabee nomination.

    What’s your point, troll?

  7. Neither McCain or Romney are worthy candidates. Bob Dole is a loser who got his ass kicked by Clinton.

    History is being made right now. The death of Conservativism in America is upon us. A McCain (or Romney) nomination is certain doom for the GOP.

    By the end of the day on super Tuesday, another 20,000 illegal immigrants will have crossed Americas borders thanks to McCain. A McCain nomination will make Kennedy and Feingold very happy. McCain is so Liberal, he makes Hillary look like Reagan.

  10. Although I frowned upon Dole’s ‘culture of tolerance’, he was one of the shrewdest economicists in Congress. He knew exactly where and when to cut taxes.

    This post is horribly flawed for several reasons:
    1. It’s Spacebrother, afraid to reveal his identity.
    2. McCain is but one Senator. His worst problem was McCain-Feingold, which he did play an important part in, but open borders were supported by a lot of Rockefeller Republicans and Democrats, not just McCain.
    3. So conservatism and liberalism are both flawed. Why don’t you just admit you are a libertarian and off the natural political scale?
    4. Do you like or hate the Clintons?
    5. Romney would certainly kill the GOP, but McCain or Huckabee, being from Red states and having a generally solid conservative record (McCain) or a very solid record (Huck), naturally fit in.
    6. Dole happens to have a very long Senate record, and was given the 96 nomination in part because even Buchanan had to keel to his experience and economic knowledge.
    7. Liberals such as #7 and L admit that you’re an idiot. The only people that like you are the rest of the Four Stooges, Moxom, Arn, and EB, and you all are finally realizing that spending so much time on a website hostile to you is hazardous to your mental health. The liberals that acknowledge your stupidity can at least debate and bring up some good points.
    8. Why’d you stop posting under your strange name insulting me? I found it quite humourous, because yes, I happened to oversee the Samwell video at a Starbucks once. It made me hate France even more than I already did.

    We really need Romney to drop out so we can actually get a clear prediction on who will win. It won’t be him, because Oven Mitt only appeals to corporations, whereas Mike Huckabee respects family values, is tough on crime and terrorism, and has economic policies that encourage booms from ALL Americans, not just the top. I predict more than half the votes will go to McCain, but I may be wrong.

  13. Well, McCain came out on top for super tuesday getting double what Mittens and Huckaboo got. But who really cares? The Democrats are going to run with this election and win in a landslide bigger than the one tricky dick enjoyed on his second bid for the presidency. I don’t know where Corkscrew keeps getting his numbers from, but that 21% for Dems that he keeps spouting is way off base. And take a look at the polls, Dems are constantly getting twice as many votes as the Reps, wonder why that is. Could it be because we have had Reps in charge for the worst 8 years in US history?
    Actually, I have to congratulate this site for being a success, not a great success but a success nonetheless. They have managed to turn everyone who reads it away from the Republican party on the outside chance that some Republicans may actually believe the insane claims made on this site. Thanks for the help guys. The Democrats were going to win in this election anyway, but at least you did your part to sway some of the die hard Repubs away from the party and to the Democrats side.
    Like I said before, I hope you guys come back for the next election to “support” those we don’t again.

  14. Arn- I don’t think it will be as easy for the democrats as everyone is assuming. Nothing in politics is ever certain and if whoever wins the nomination as solely as the “Anti-Bush”, they are going to need to create a meaningful identity for potential voters. What I mean is that he/she can’t appear one dimensional in the press. I still think that Hillary’s prior voting for the war hurts her significantly, not only on the left, but also on the right. It plays into the Republican’s image machine as portraying her as typical Washington insider willing to say or do anything for an election. Had she had the gumption (to be honest, I doubt she really cares about the war other than using it for political reasons) she would be getting the primary and general election handed to her on a silver platter. But she didn’t and like the DNC and members of congress, she voted for the war on the off chance it would work out and they didn’t want to look bad on from the sidelines. I think they were fearful of another Grenada which gave Regan a tremendous boost polls. I still think that Hillary will not get an easy road to the Whitehouse. It always seems to me that the Democrats seem to put everything into a brutal primary and then limp into the general election exhausted, falling prey to the Republican political machine. Oh, well…we’ll see.
