Tea Party Nation Responds to Romney @ Leaked Video [View all]

They are delusional and woefully ignorant.

Judson Phillips writes an Open Letter to Mitt Romney:

You should be running away with this election. Even with the print and broadcast media acting as the official propaganda arm of the Obama campaign, you should still be far ahead. Contrary to what Erick Erickson said yesterday, you are not losing. But you are not winning either.

You were not the choice of the Tea Party or conservatives for the nomination but you are now the nominee. So the question we have to ask is, do you want to win?

So far, you have not reached out to the Tea Party or movement conservatives. The Tea Party and conservative voters right now are OMG voters, not Romney voters. OMG is, Obama must go. There is a huge difference. OMG voters will show up at the polls and pull the lever for you. Romney voters will not only vote, they will show up and work the phones for you, put out yard signs and do the boots on the groundwork that every campaign must have.

Yesterday far left wing magazine Mother Jones leaked a video of you at a fundraiser talking like a conservative. Why the hell arenít you doing that on the stump? The most damning part of that video was not the comments about the 47% who receive government benefits. The most damning part of that video was your comment about moving to the middle to play for the 10% who are in the middle.

That is Washington consultant talk.

America is a conservative nation. 43% of Americans are conservative. 30% are moderates. Only 22% are liberals. If you run as a conservative, take all of the conservatives, all you need is a quarter of the moderates and you have enough to win.

Republicans win when they run as conservatives. Reagan won as a conservative. George H.W. Bush ran claiming he would essentially be a third Reagan term. When he walked away from that promise, America rejected him. George W. Bush ran as a conservative and won twice. John McCain did not and he lost.

You need movement conservatives and Tea Party people in your campaign. When are you going to get us onboard?

Dick Morris has predicted that twenty years from now, Republican Parties will be holding Reagan/Romney dinners.

They wonít if you do not win.

America needs you to defeat the Obama, Pelosi, Reid axis of fiscal evil and pull America back from the abyss. You canít do that if you donít win. You have seven weeks. You can still pull this out.

The question is, are you willing to do what it takes to save America? Do you want to win?
