Romney Is Wrong On Wright

Jeremiah Wright finger SC Romney Is Wrong on Wright

Yesterday Romney was asked by Townhall’s Guy Bensen if the Reverend Jeremiah Wright is “fair game” in the 2012 election.  Romney gave the wrong answer.  He quickly rebuked a conservative PAC for considering an ad about Obama and Wright.  The TV ad campaign proposal had been leaked to the New York Times, and was already being labeled racially charged.  According to the Times, the Romney team has decided not to assail Obama’s “likability,” for fear personal attacks will backfire with independents.

Message to the Republican establishment:  do not muzzle those of us who want to focus on Obama’s troubling history with angry Marxists, black and white, including Reverend Wright and Bill Ayers.   This is not about race.  It is about knowing who Obama is, understanding what he has already done to our country, and what he is capable of doing.

The issue of Reverend Wright is not peripheral, it is central.  It gets to the heart of the differences between conservative and progressive views.  Democrats have won on the field of character assassination – they have defamed and destroyed respect not simply for Republican candidates, but for all Republican voters.  When Republican party leaders refuse to inform the public about the hateful, radical character of the liberal/progressive agenda for America — so visible in Wright and Obama — we are hobbling ourselves, and we will lose the bigger fight, which is about identity, core beliefs and values.  To examine Obama and Wright is to ask who we are as Americans, what we want for our future, and to face the dangers the Obama presidency poses for our country.

    Looks like Romney could learn from McCain. McCain refused to use the "reverend" or any other of Obummers radical friends and note where it got him. Live and learn, Mitt.

  2. Romney is wrong in not going after the Obama/Wright issue. McCain's handlers pulled back McCain and Palin in '08 resulting in Obama never being vetted.

  3. It just hurts me when we are going to have the same old, same old with no good choice & have to vote for the best of 2 evils, AGAIN. The Rs have not had anyone good for years & years & that is exactly why we are in the mess we are in. PC has got to go & yesterday

    I suspect Romney made the choice of going for high-ground character-wise (edit: he didn't need to hold back about Rev. Wrong to do this–the only one so far I've seen with less character than 0bama is his father Satan).

  5. Salvatore A Apicelli says:

    Sorry but Romney is totally wrong on this one. Associations with radicals is fair game.

    . I will quote Michael Savage who recently said " Romney needs to heed the wisdom of the late Republican senator and presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, who famously said “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” and “moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Evidently, the Republican Establishment did not learn anything from the last election. The McCain strategy failed and so will Romney's if the course is not changed now. Romney and the Republican Elite continued soft approach in this campaign will not win my financial support. I refuse to support any candidate who chooses to go the same route as McCain.

    I have always felt/voiced my opinion, that from the moment I heard of Romney and listen to some of his progressive verbal nonsense; that Romney is a progressive rich snob and he is nothing more than a white version of Obama. Once again, we have been herded into another channel, devised by Obama, to hold our nose and vote for his brother, in order to flush BO out of the white house. The only good thing about this, Romney can't play the race card on us.

  8. Theonethatknows says:

    If a candidate's religious beliefs are a factor in deciding who to vote for, then neither Obama or Romney are fit to run. We know Obama is not eligible for a multitude of reasons, but Romney's Mormon religion has not been vetted either. Mormon religion takes their rites directly from the Masonic lodges, which IS a religion that worships Satan himself. So we have a choice…vote for who could be the Anti-Christ (Obama), or the one who worships him (Romney). I will not vote for either one, because in either case, we are condemning our country to Hell. It is going to take more to save this country than who we vote for President, but neither one of these men deserves our vote.
