Yes, Romney was the problem

The fact is liberal Republicans do not win presidential races.  The obvious reason for this is that RINOs do not offer much of a contrast to a Democrat, or at least a contrast so weak it does not motivate voters to support them.   You would think we would have learned this lesson from the McCain and Dole debacles.   To make things worse, Romney even agreed with Obama on numerous occasions during the debates, missing great opportunities to instead attack the president.  With the economy collapsing all around us, voters were simply not looking for Obama-light.

Moreover, Romney’s strategy of looking presidential but saying nothing controversial was an asinine strategy.  All one has to do is watch the old Reagan/Carter debates to see how Reagan strived to show contrast with Carter at every opportunity.  While Reagan was always civil in the way he stated things, he tore Carter’s head off every chance he got.

The list of explosive issues ignored by Romney goes far beyond those that Romney himself was weak on.  Take, for example, the Fast and Furious and Benghazi scandals, both of which involved the deaths of Americans and a subsequent cover-up by this administration.  The latter scandal, especially, was ripe for Romney to exploit, given the new evidence that Obama refused to assist Americans under attack and then lied to the American public about the reason for the attack.  This is an impeachable offense but Romney chose to ignore this issue altogether.

The public record proves that Romney is way too liberal to be taken seriously by conservative Republicans

Despite recent statements across the country by Governor Mitt Romney claiming he’s pro-life, pro-family and a committed conservative, a broad investigation of his actual statements, actions, and public positions over the years indicates that he has spent his entire career speaking and governing as a liberal – and that his new found conversion to conservatism very likely coincides with his candidacy for the presidency.

The information in this report is gleaned from public records, press accounts, internet web sites and research (as well as personal observation) by my organization, MassResistance, a grass-roots pro-family group that has observed Governor Romney for over a decade. We have analyzed his legislation, met with his staff, lobbied for and against his agenda (depending what it is) and otherwise compiled considerable research on his administration.

We believe this report is necessary due to a calculated effort by the Romney campaign to revise his history and portray the Governor as far more conservative than the record indicates. Already, the Governor’s staff is making appointments with the nation’s leading conservative leaders to convince them that he should be the standard bearer for the conservative movement in the upcoming presidential elections.

We have also been alarmed by misleading and glowing accounts about Romney which have appeared in the conservative media over the past year. The fact that these articles were based upon sloppy research and material supplied by the Romney camp gave us great incentive to set the record straight. Few national political writers have bothered to speak with any MassResistance member, or for that matter anyone critical of Romney’s record.

What is a CINO?

Q: What is a CINO?

A: CINO means Catholic In Name Only. Alternative meaning: Christian In Name Only. See above photo for examples. 

I will confine my explanation to Catholics, alone.

Real Catholics manifest their close, personal relationship with God by accepting all the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church, by the charitable service they typically and freely render to to their neighbors, in the name of Jesus Christ, and through their consistent and faithful participation in all of the work, worship, sacraments and devotions of the Catholic Church.

Real Catholics also typically engage in frequent prayer, while maintaining an ongoing regimen of Catholic studies, in order to keep the conscience fully informed.  

If  a real Catholic suspects he might have offended God or man, he promptly makes a good faith effort to mend his ways, and through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, gratefully receives God’s forgiveness and grace.

Real Catholics also take God at his Word, as it has been authoritatively and clearly explained through his one, holy,  Catholic, and apostolic Church, according to the will of God the Father, the promises of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit.  

CINO’s remain affiliated with the Church primarily for the personal and political benefits that go along with their membership. To A CINO, the Church is little more than a semi-private club.  

In order to justify their positions, CINO’s tend to rely on the flawed opinions of those who only appear to have moral authority, since any other course of action would require a modicum of personal disicpline and at least some allegiance to authentic Catholic Church teachings. 

CINO’s rely on their own malformed consciences to provide the necessary rationalization for whatever types of  lusts, perversions, and other abominations they might personally prefer. As a result, CINO’s typically claim to never sin … at least in a serious way … and hence … see no need for Confession or similar types of things.

CINO’s believe that “the Spirit of the 2nd Vatican Council”  pretty much did away with the need for priests and church hierarchy, dogmas and defined truths, sacraments and/or formal worship.

With CINO’s, conscience … not Christ … is King … and so long as a CINO manages to keep his conscience “in the dark” … just about anything is permissible … especially since CINO’s typically believe that the prospect of Judgment Day is only a cruel hoax … and that God … if he truly exists … is really just a big “cream puff” … who will tolerate just about anything.
