    Romney Nostradamus!

    The last two weeks should go down as a period of vindication for former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and earn him the nickname, “soothsayer of the Western World” — a modern-age Nostradamus.

    On Jan. 14, Chrysler’s CEO acknowledged that Jeeps would be built in China, confirming a statement that unfairly earned Romney the moniker “liar of the year.”

    Score one.

    Then, when forces linked to al-Qaida captured the government-held town of Konna, Mali, on Jan. 10, they drove home a statement Romney made during the second presidential debate in Boca Raton, nearly three months earlier.

    “With the Arab Spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and — and public life and in economic life in the Middle East,” he said then. “But instead we’ve seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events.”

    Describing violence in Syria and Libya, he added this kicker: “Mali has been taken over, the northern part of Mali, by al-Qaida-type individuals.”

    This prompted, according to TheCommentator.com, a Bill Maher tweet: “Mitt, you do know that most of America thinks Mali is one of Obama’s daughters, right?” What far-left loon Maher doesn’t seem to understand is that it doesn’t matter if he knows what Mali is, so long as our president does.

    Score two.

    This week saw another Romney prediction come to pass — that a re-elected Obama would infringe on our Second Amendment rights.

    “In a second term, he would be unrestrained by the demands of re-election,” Romney said at an April 2012 National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “As he told the Russian president last month when he thought no one else was listening, after a re-election he’ll have a lot more, quote, ‘flexibility’ to do what he wants. I’m not exactly sure what he meant by that, but looking at his first three years, I have a very good idea.”

    Referring to the right to bear arms, Romney told convention-goers, “If we are going to safeguard our Second Amendment, it is time to elect a president who will defend the rights President Obama ignores or minimizes. I will.”

    The president’s signature on 23 executive on gun control this week, as well as his acknowledged support for a ban on certain weapons and magazines, show how right Romney was.

    Score three.

    Finally, Romney was ridiculed for using “binders of women” to describe what a Romney Cabinet would look like. Instead of mocking the poorly worded phrase, we should have listened to the words themselves.

    The president’s announcement of his second-term Cabinet prompted ABC’s George Stephanopoulos to ask on Jan. 10, “Where are the women?” Apparently, they’re all still in Romney’s binders.

    Score four.

    In retrospect, this should come as no surprise to anyone. Romney is, after all, a businessman — a very successful businessman. What separates success from failure in the business world is an ability to assess a situation and to predict what will happen next.

    This is called reality. Obama’s hallmark is “hope.” See the difference?

    Too bad those powers of prediction didn't find him a competent IT crew or more than 25% support among minorities.

    Why doesn't Romney run for Kerry's Senate seat?

    Oh, right...it's in Massachusetts.

    Massachusetts isnt about the "47%" ....

    Check the traffic on the Pike: self-reliant folks heading west,  out of the state, for private sector jobs in Texas and other "red" states.
    Those reliant on government, including third cousins of pols and the Auntie Zenuiti crowd, heading east.

    It is now more like "75%"....

    I have to go to Texas for work in a few weeks, too.  Dallas.  Should be fun.

    I'll be meeting with other utility software professionals about their energy efficiency programs.  Very forward-thinking.  What you might call "blue" state technology moving into "red" states...

    Conservatives has always been the best Eco-citizens. Why? Because we focus on what makes sense, and don't chase pipe dreams like wind and solar.

    It's not Kerry's seat, it's the people's seat.

    Is it true that during all the years Kerry has been our senator, he has not authored one piece of legislation? I know he jumped on everyone else's legislation, but what has he done?

    No, it will pass as "we told a lie of obfuscation" - Jeep production will NOT move to China as Romney claimed - Kenosha will build Jeeps as normal BUT Jeep will be building Jeeps IN China FOR China in a Joint venture:

    The deal between Chrysler, Fiat and China’s Guangzhou Automobile Group has been signed, and Jeep models will be built under the companies'€™ joint venture, GAC Fiat Automobiles.

    No outsourcing...so quit the lying, please

    Good point, besides having to deal with a bad narrative on social issues and the MSM magnifying the war on women, Romney's team did blow it on logistics, IT and ground game. They were outplayed and it cost him the election.
