"We are witnessing the decline our country right in front of our eyes. We are witnessing the transformation of our country. We are witnessing a particular party do it with glee, and we are scared because the party we thought that we supported to stop it isn’t interested in stopping it. They’re interested in stopping us. Meaning, opponents of what’s happening. We don’t want to lose our culture. We don’t want Western civilization to take it on the chin. We don’t want government to become so big and out of control that we lose our individual liberty and freedom and impetus and ambition and desire. We don’t want to lose the language. All of this is happening. People are losing their jobs, they’re losing full-time status, all because of an Obamacare policy that the Democrats put in with not one Republican vote. But beyond that Republicans have done nothing substantive to stop it. People are scared. We genuinely see a crisis, a crisis that involves the future of the country. And a desire to maintain this country as founded. But the people inside the Beltway obviously see no such crisis, either party." ~ El Rushbo, 10/26/15The McCains, the Romneys, the Bushes and the whole damn GOP Establishment aren't saving the Republican Party, folks. And as if it's not enough that their FAILED history has taught them NOTHING...
...now the last LOSER completely embarrasses himself by railing against the alternative, conservative to the lamestream media, longing for the 'good old days' of bought-and-paid-for one-size-fits-all press, and ironically on a David Axelrod podcast! (Let us count the conundrums)
Breitbart: Failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lamented that the demise of traditional media is empowering Republican “insurgents” and preventing establishment Republicans from compromising more with Democrats.And you see, he, THEY, loath you for being on to them. No longer can they disguise or outright HIDE their quisling desires from voters. We're ALL now a witness to the one-party rule. (They unite against us, go figure)
As the Republican establishment is trying convince Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58% to run for House Speaker, Romney told David Axelrod on a recent “The Axe Files” podcast that the “extremes within our respective parties are having a louder and louder voice and demanding more attention” and “immediate action” as opposed to more “collaborative action.”
Romney said this phenomenon flows in part from the “change in the world of media.”
“There was a time when we all got the news with the same facts, if you will,” he said. “We had three networks we watched for the evening news. Most of us got newspapers. Everybody in the middle class got a newspaper, so we got the same facts whether we agreed or not with them.”
Now, according to Romney, people “get their news on the web” and “they tend to read those things which they agree with.” He said people are “not seeing the other side” and “not even getting the same facts” while “we have commentators” on left-leaning and right-leaning cable news channels “who are hyperbolic in expressing their views on issues.”
Romney lamented that more Democrats are considering themselves “liberal” and “in my party, there are more and more who feel they are more insurgent than towards the center of the party.”
“And I think that divisiveness is one of the things that has led to Washington having such a hard time getting things done,” he said.
The rise of new media outlets in the Internet age has allowed regular Americans to get access to information that the mainstream press, with the help of the both political establishments, often concealed from the general public when, as Romney noted, Americans all received the same set of facts.

RUSH: "Mitt Romney went on a podcast. This may be why it didn’t get widely reported. He went on a podcast hosted by David Axelrod. Of all places to go, Romney went on a podcast hosted by David Axelrod. Let me just give you the upshot of what he said. There was a time when we all got the news from the same facts, if you will. We had three networks we watched for the evening news. Most of us got newspapers. Everybody in the middle class got a newspaper. So we all got the facts, whether we agreed or not....framing them quite accurately as the defeatist ideas they are...
Mitt Romney is on record in the David Axelrod podcast as lamenting and complaining about the fact that there is now a conservative media, both on talk radio, in print, in broadcast, and on the World Wide Web. Romney told Axelrod that the demise of legacy media had empowered conservative insurgents like this show and others, which has prevented collaboration in Washington. ..."
"While on this podcast… Actually no. On State of the Union yesterday on CNN, Romney was praising various Republican presidential candidates as being in possession of best approach to find common ground with the people across the aisle. The names he mentioned are Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and Chris Christie. And then he said, “We have Paul Ryan, for instance, willing to work with Democrats. That’s a good thing. That’s a productive thing. That’s what we need.” No, we don’t. Is there not one of you in the Republican establishment — is there not a single one of you — that wants to win?
Is there not a single one of you in the Republican establishment in Washington that has ideas you think superior to the Democrats that you want to win and implement? Is the entire reason for the existence of the Republican Party to collaborate with the Democrats and get things done in Washington like Obamacare and an Iran nuclear deal that makes the world much more dangerous? A terrorist regime in possession of nuclear weapons? You want to agree with a political party that’s going to make that happen? Name anything else the Democrat Party has done in the last seven years that has benefited this country and you want to collaborate with that?
That’s how you measure your success?
This is embarrassing.
It is just completely embarrassing."
The incessant desire to 'collaborate' -- from Romney's pride in Romneycare to any host of liberal policies flooding the Republican Establishment -- IS what's led to Obamacare, the economic downturn with stagnant wages, and a flood of unskilled workers! And if it wasn't for alternative media, we'd be kept in the dark...
On Monday’s Mark Levin Show: The Republican establishment will do their very best to sabotage Conservatives, which is why there hasn’t been a Conservative nominee since Ronald Reagan. Mitt Romney gave us another four years of Obama because he went back to his old Massachusetts ways. Romney and other establishment types attack Conservatives while claiming to be the real Conservatives – the same people that refuse to back Sen. Ted Cruz, who has the most consistent Conservative record. Also, if you can repeal 85% of Obamacare, why would you vote for a continuing budget bill that prevents repeal? That’s exactly what Paul Ryan did, which is why there’s no wonder why Conservatives in the House and Senate question Ryan and his record. Finally, Washington won’t lift the debt ceiling to fund our military or secure our border, but they’ll lift it for more massive unconstitutional government spending. John Boehner’s last act as Speaker of the House might be a two year budget bill to lock in a future Congress and President. He’s worked so hard to expand government and fund every penny of the Obama agenda that it’s only fitting this is how he’ll go out.All of this has become standard operations for an out-of-control Big Government apparatchik. Despite the political desires to silence, we must continue to maintain sources that keep us in the know, if we hope to maintain any degree of knowledge over and pressure on those elected.
