Gov. Christine Todd Whitman: "Mourdock's Comments Damage ALL Republicans & Especially Romney"

Former N.J. Gov. Christine Todd Whitman
Former EPA administrator :

Mourdock's comments damage all Republicans and especially Romney as the fight for the woman's vote intensifies. This could be a defining moment for Romney and he should immediately denounce both Mourdock and the comment.

2. Romney was so quick to comment on Libya. We should have a poll to see

how much time will pass before he comments on Mourdock. That should be the next campaign ad with a ticking clock in the background.

9. The campaign commented last night

but I wonder if Romney will be forced to say anything himself. It will also be interesting to see if they pull Mourdock's new ad which features Mitt Romney endorsing him. As a Hoosier, I can only hope that his is enough to bury this moron once and for all.

11. Thanks for the info. One would think Romney would make a comment himself

since he has endorsed Mourdock. We shall see... and if Mourdock doesn't lose support in Indiana over this, we are truly in a sad, social state of affairs .

I think Republicans should be on every television channel talking about it.

Don't let them off the hook.

Hold them accountable.

(Isn't it interesting just last week Ryan again said there was no war on women. Well someone just got bit in the *** again.)

Romney is too gutless to denounce any Repub. He might anger the crazies.

21. Remember that Christine Todd Whitman...

...was the Bush Administration official who declared that the air at "ground zero",immediately after 9/11, was safe.

Her words reassured police, firefighters and other emergency personnel to jump on in--because the water was just fine.

This was false. No doubt, as head of Bush's EPA, she was commanded to do what she did. They gave her a horrible directive.

She's had to watch countless heroes die of cancer, respiratory failure and other conditions directly related to breathing in that toxic air.

Notice that she pretty much went underground after quitting the Bush EPA gig. She's not doing this because she's running for office again.

She's interjecting herself into politics at a very critical time and helping the Democrats--because paybacks are hell.

8. If Republicans truly had ANY type of organizational skills...

...they would put out a directive -delivered by word of mouth, if need be- that NO ONE is to say SHIT about women's issues!

But no one is in charge of the GOP clown car. It just keeps idling and bumping into things.

13. Whitman is a lying POS.

 

She states one thing and then does everything in her power to help republicans do damage. Whtiman should lift the rock and crawl back in her hole. A few years ago her daughter announced her intentions to fun for office. She got the message and dropped that notion real quick. I can't put into words how much I despise this rightwing family posing as moderates.

Whitman should be speaking from a jail cell and has blood on her hands.

So the likes of Kay Baily Hutchinson support the rape of women and bearing of future GOP voters for their GOP platform? Nancy Reagan supports the rape of women and bearing of future GOP voters for their GOP platform? Condie Rice supports the rape of women and bearing of future GOP voters for their GOP platform? Barbara and Laura Bush support the rape of women and bearing of future GOP voters for their GOP platform?

30. What she doesn't get is that ...

... the Republican Party ALREADY IS DAMAGED GOODS!

Has she been paying attention?

Hasn't she heard what Ryan and Akin have said?

Hasn't she been following what the House has been doing since the Tea Party took power?

26. Attend the tale of Christine Todd

 

her moderation's a total fraud.

Christine Todd Whitman is a pseudo-moderate. She is a Republican hack who, like all Republicans, is interested first and foremost working things for herself.

27. Romney isn't going to openly denounce ANYTHING.

It might cost him a segment of his nutbagger base.

Besides, he probably doesn't see anything wrong with the statement, one way or the other. Remember, the only thing filling that suit is his desire to occupy the Oval Office.

34. The base isn't pro-Romney ...

... it's anti-Obama.

He has no real base. His party is motivated by hatred of the president.

There's no passion for their own candidate.

These type of individuals do not speak for a vast majority of our Citizens Democrats or Republicans. The sad truth is that some will vote for Mr Mourdock.

35. That may be true, but here in New Jersey, we're still suffering from the damage of HER

"Something for nothing" tax cuts.

And I believe all humanity is suffering for her service to Dick Cheney's version of Charlie McCarthy.

It's too bad she never cared as much for damage to humanity as she does for damage to Republicans.
