A jazzy intro to Romney’s praise for a courageous people

Mitt Romney: “Russia has faltered on road to freedom”
A thought that President Obama would do well to remember
In Poland, Romney heralds economic freedom,” CNN International

Classy: Reminiscent of The Pianist, there was spirited Chopin after Romney’s speech. (Hat tip to Dissentispatriotic for locating this C-Span video at The Hill.)

Not Classy: Most media didn’t focus on Romney’s remarks in Warsaw — “ABC Fumes Over Mitt Romney Aide ‘Getting Nasty With the Press’ During ‘Gaffe’-Filled Tripor his meeting with Lech Walesa or his laying of a wreath at the World War II Memorial Westerplatte in Gdansk. Oh no. Instead we get A.P. “raw video” that The Usual Suspects just loved:

Newsbusters found a prime example of the wretched coverage:
ABC Fumes Over Mitt Romney Aide ‘Getting Nasty With the Press’
During ‘Gaffe’-Filled Trip

Again, I used Google News’s new “real time coverage” feature, which gave me an astonishing number of news stories, photographs, and videos. It’s fun. As you can see for yourself.

RANT: GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY. The overwhelming majority of “news” titles made for a depressing read. When the media decide they don’t like you, they gang up and pile on. The worst part of it all is how little attention the media ever paid to Obama’s innumerable gaffes during 2008 — including saying there are 57 states in the U.S. He was pathetic before he was president and stupefyingly horrible as president.

    Romney does not pull any punches over press coverage of his overseas trip

    • Hokma

      Romney is right.
      Romney has two comnpetitors: Obama and Obama’s media corps – the latter is the only thing keeping this race close right now. They lie, cheat, and deceive on Obama’s behalf.

      • getfitnow

        Yep. He has to do what Reagan did. Bypass the msm. And Reagan didn’t have a new media.
        I think the DEMS/msm thought Romney was going to be a wimp.

      maybe coverage like the WAPO is one good reason, that Romney does not bother to cater to the press

    Romney was rude to the media and Palestinians?! What next, insulting Carrot Top and Casey Anthony? #boyhereallysteppedinitnow

    • arabella_trefoil

      Romney is rude to horses too. Let’s not forget that.
      (Dammit, why isn’t the dressage thing working? The New York Times promised me that it would.)

    • arabella_trefoil

      No, he does not have the black vote in the bag. Once again, thanks HK2 for sharing this article.

    • Hokma

      Obama is making the mistake of assuming he will have the same support from African Americans now that he did 4 years ago. Between an extraordinary unemployment rate, his stance on gay/lesbian marriage, and, at least in the case of Chicago, crime he is making a mistake with that presumption.

      • getfitnow

        No he doesn’t. I contend Romney will peel of a few votes, and many blacks will stay home.

        Not one person I know, of any race, that voted for Obama has said one word about him or the upcoming election. Ironically, only one person, who is a dear friend and a socialist, during the leaks post Ben Laden, she just said one day, that I was right about Obama. Neither one of us needed to say another word.

    this is just plain crazy. I do understand that there has to be cuts in the DOD. That makes sense.
    But to keep funds for $26 a gallon biofuels while cutting other things and increasing the cost to them of veterans health care just does not make sense to me

    • arabella_trefoil

      I love stories like this.

    • Flop_Flipper

      Since Obama is on the taxpayer payroll it is actually we that are funding his campaign.

    • getfitnow

      It wasn’t long ago these fools were bragging about raising a $billion$ for this campaign.

  • samb1

    I think Mitt has done very well
    in showing there are differences
    between himself and Obama on this trip.
    It was good to feel proud again
    while watching Mitt speak and
    Ms. Romney looked lovely too.

    Thanks BH,
    It went well with my lunch.

      I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it goes better than That One’s announcement at 3 A.M. And remember, this gang was suppose to be so tech saavy.

      • arabella_trefoil

        It will work. Mitt’s team is plenty tech savvy.

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/07/31/wait-so-why-exactly-was-romneys-overseas-trip-such-a-public-relations-disaster/

    so why exactly was Romney’s overseas trip such a public relations disaster.

    funny thing it is only the reporters who would trash him no matter what he did and not the American people who see a problem

    • arabella_trefoil

      Haha! I think part of the problems was that the Olympics are going on, and the reporters covering Romney know that most Americans will be watching that. Sibling rivalry amongst reporters, so to speak.
      So the reporters are looking for something, anything to say about Romney that will get atttention.
      At least they seem to have given up on the dressage stuff. Now if they could morph the dressage story into Pie-O-My, then they’d be happy.

    • Hokma

      UK – Romney only reflected what the UK media had already said – including that blowhard London mayor.
      Israel – Romney rightfully said Jerusalem is Israel’s capital and when he refered to culture in that fundraiser he was only refering to Israel – not the PLO (although he would be right if he did).
      The rest is either overstated by the media or fabricated.by the media.

  • Flop_Flipper

    This was a great speech. He doesn’t come across to me as stiff. He speaks with sincere passion. Absolutely loved this.

  • Flop_Flipper

    In case you had any doubt that ABC was totally in the tank for Obama, the latest report about Obama’s family heritage should erase all doubt. The assumptions and the bias are astounding. Using phrases like is likely and strongly suggests to back their claims. Now I don’t claim to be a scientist but I do understand the scientific method. Words like likely and suggests do not constitute proof of anything. In short, it’s junk science.

    And they couldn’t help but contrast Romney’s family history. Yep, they went there. Polygamy and the Mormons. They somehow felt they were being fair by mentioning that Obama had polygamy in his family history. But look at how they present it.

    Obama also has polygamy in his family history. His dad, Barack Obama Sr., descended from the Luo tribe in Kenya where polygamy was common. Obama’s grandfather had at least four wives and his great-grandfather had five, the Washington Post’s David Maraniss reported.

    Now contrast that with their description of polygamy in Romney’s heritage.

    After his family line hopped the pond to America, Romney’s great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, became the first of Romney’s ancestors to practice polygamy, having four wives and 30 children.

    No mention whatsoever that Obama’s father practiced polygamy when he married his mother. Nope, according to them such a thing never occurred.

    It is going to be difficult to defeat Obama. With supposed news outlets conveniently neglecting facts and supporting suppositions of junk science it’s going to take a massive effort to set things straight. I do know that when Romney wins, they are going to find their selves left out in the cold. As they deserve. And take a look at the photos contrasting Romney and Obama’s heritage. I’m certain there is no bias intended. Nope. None at all.

    • Dissentispatriotic

      Not just ABC. It’s truly mind-bending to hear and read news accounts when they ALL are positive for Obama and there is NOTHING positive for Romney. What in the world do they all get for bestowing such glory on the man when little is deserved?

      • DianaLC

        They are bought and paid for by the same people. There’s no “deserving” involved. It’s all product placement.

        • HELENK2

          I have much more respect for a prostitute than today’s msm
          They do not pretend to be anything then what they are.
          can not say the same for the msm

        • HoosierinDixie

          Exactly. It like one bad informercial after another.

    • arabella_trefoil

      It’s impossible to change who your ancestors were and what they did. That is factual.
      It’s possible to spin like a fucking top to take credit for what your ancestors did/endured/achieved etc. Why is the media in love with Obama? There are many reasons, but none of them make sense.
      I think laziness tops the list. Most of the people here at No Quarter follow the news diligently and expose themselves to multiple sources of information. NQ people also think. But thinking is so hard, ya know?
      People cast their votes based on some pretty idiotic reasons. But I’m hoping that the really lazy people (some of whom don’t even know who the president is) will be too lazy to go and vote.
      Let’s remember that in terms of Obama’s ancestry he didn’t build that. Neither did Romney.
      Please don’t let all this nonsense get to you. The end result will be bad for your health.
      Endure.

      • Flop_Flipper

        Very good advice. Thank you.

      • getfitnow

        And since most of them are liberal, there’s something “virtuous” in supporting the black man, doncha’ know. Need I say “authentic” black man. This would be funny if our situation weren’t so serious.

        And did you notice, that his “faux” ancestor is no ordinary slave—-no, he was THE FIRST SLAVE.

        These people make me sick.

        • arabella_trefoil

          Mittens beats Obama in the heritage category. Mormon missionaries spend two years bicycling over hill and dale to spread the word. They do this wearing shirts and ties. They carry backpacks as they trudge through the countryside on foot. They use felt board presentations to explain their theology. (Come on, who still uses felt boards? And if you had experience trying to explain the planet Kolob to potential converts, you are one heck of a debater.) They are used to rejection and ridicule and it bounces right off them. They grew up in the Jello Belt and derive awesome superpowers from the chemical additives in Jello salad.
          Disrespect Romney at your own risk.

          • lizy s

            We need to come up with and awesome name for the super power based on the chemicals in Jello.

            • FLDemFem

              The main ingredient in Jello is gelatin, which is made from horses hooves..cows too. Ever been kicked by a horse or a cow? Ouch!! The gelatin part would give the power, GelOW!, the ability to wobble when hit, engulfing the fist of the opponent without injury, while at the same time socking hell out of him with the hoof, steel-shod, of course.

              Sort of like Mitt has been doing to Obama lately. Hehe.

    • FLDemFem

      Obama Sr. didn’t practice polygamy since it is illegal in this country. He committed bigamy. He was already married with a kid and therefore his marriage to Ann Dunham was invalid. That makes Obama a bastard in every sense of the word.

      • Flop_Flipper

        I couldn’t agree more with your last sentence. I might add a few other qualifiers though.

  • HARP2

    Obama scare me all the time.

  • Popsmoke

    Romney scare me sometimes….

    • DianaLC

      Popsmoke, sometimes i think that if you would take a deep look inside, you might find that you scare you.

      • Popsmoke

        No Diana reality scares me more than I scare myself. But people who do not understand reality are indeed a scary bunch. What reality do you live in?

        • DianaLC

          Well, having just watched a re-run of Star Trek: Next Generation in which Worf caused hundreds of alternate realtities to come together, I understand a bit about alternate realities. Yours may be like the one in which the Borg were winning. I don’t want to be in yours.
          I like mine better. The people are a little nicer and less paranoid.

          • Popsmoke

            Stay in your alternate world Diana it is indeed safer… Because reality is a real bitch….

            • DianaLC

              Well, yours is anyway!

    • scottymac54

      It’s probably the wickedness, dressed up as wholesomeness….
      When your choices are between a gunrunner and a tax dodger and you are afforded no alternatives, it’s time to admit this for what it is, and postpone the elections until a viable candidate can be found.
      Will that happen? NO…..because the fix is in, the zombies care only about booting Barky and the qualifications for the next marionette have been drastically lowered, to facilitate this, as they are, each time.
      Why would you be frightened, LOL! Surely, you must be mentally ill, or a Marxist, or a Jew hater…..why would you reject another puppet in a cabaret, when we’re getting foreign policy geniuses and McKinsey free, in the bargain?
      You have the right to free speech. Don’t make the mistake of actually trying it, unless you’re willing to draw your friends close, and your enemies closer.

    • FLDemFem

      Well, Obama scares the rest of us all the time.

      • Popsmoke

        I can’t disagree. Guess we are going to be scared either way this November….

  • arabella_trefoil

    Fret not. Romney has the strength to endure the media’s idiotic coverage.

    • getfitnow

      I really believe you’re right, and they know it.
