Mitt cancels The View appearance

lily316(z5PA)October 15, 2012

Whatsa matter, Mitty, are you afraid of a few women? His audiences are so hand picked as are his appearances. He won't do Letterman as McCain and every other candidate did in recent years. He's afraid of Letterman, Mitty might have to go off script.

I hope there are loaded questions thrown at him tomorrow night. He won't have the Koch bothers there to pull his puppet strings. They are sending out mass emails to ALL the company employees they are affiliated with warning them they will no doubt lose their jobs if they don't vote for Romney.

Here's an excerpt as to an explanation from the other side. To which I say, HA! you gotta be kidding me.

"The first is that he doesn't need 'The View' anymore.

For months, the Romney campaign has been desperately trying to humanize its candidate, and toward that end, appearances on talk shows can be useful. A kind of transference goes on, in which viewers associate some of the comfort and good feelings they get from familiar hosts with the guests, no matter how many car elevators they own. The campaign made "The View" booking for this reason.

But the debate seems to have transformed how at least part of the public sees the Massachusetts ex-governor. Suddenly, polls show he's made gains in likability. For instance, a Politico/George Washington University battleground poll out Monday has 51 percent of respondents saying they now view Romney favorably as a person, while 44 percent say they view him unfavorably. That's the first time this survey has shown Romney's favorable rating as above water - more positives then negatives.

In that context, "The View" does indeed look like a risk that Romney doesn't have to run, because the level of voter approval has changed.

Second, this could be about Ann Romney as much as Mitt.

With only weeks to go before Election Day, Mrs. Romney's been stepping out more and more on her own. She semi-cohosted "Good Morning America" the other day and did fine.

Her own likability ratings are higher than her husband's. So why bother with Mitt? Just let Ann do it. She can exude warmth, distance herself when her husband's policies are mentioned, and testify to his character. She's the most effective Romney surrogate of all was first lady Michelle Obama is for her husband."

I was proud of his campaign for deciding against The View
for him and letting Ann take it.

I have seen Joy and Whoopie both get very smirky and
confrontational with anyone on the show who disagrees
with them on anything.

They are so hung up and in love with Obama, except for Elizabeth,
that I think they would treat him with total disrespect.
He is so polite towards women he would let them get away
with it.
He doesn't need it . Anyway thats Obama's hang out.

Now if they go after Ann, they are going to lose ratings
because Ann is so well respected and loved by so many,
there would be a back-lash like they wouldn't believe.

As for the Letterman show. I don't blame him for not giving Letterman the time of day.
Why go on a show and boost the ratings when the host is
obviously an Obama butt kisser.

Obama has spent more time on TV than he has spent in his
Intel Meetings!

So here's my question to those who are behind him not appearing. Even if it is just perception that he's being a coward (good choice of word!), why not quell that and show up anyhow (or go on a different show)? This is negative whether he wanted it to be or not. Ann is NOT up for the presidency, and can't replace him. As the CS Monitor explains, candidates do this to get seen in a real world application. So it's not like he has "more important things to do". This, too, is important.

I'm not sure that's if that's true, but his own aides say he doesn't attend briefings because he doesn't need to.

Perhaps he might have learned about the dangers in Libya before the murders of the Ambassador and other Americans if he had taken the time to attend the daily briefings.

Rob, I think he believes that the downside of showing up on The View is greater than the benefit. Like his taxes. More downside to revealing than not revealing.

Like any chain of command, it should have hit other people long before it came to his attention. You do realize in a country of this size that many other people have responsibilities before it gets to the President?

You know, Esh... I've noted this so often, to continued silence... the USA is not a dictatorship run by one man; there's a huge chain of command and checks and balances. Our President has very little power, when all is said and done.

It's funny that the Republican view always places everything squarely upon President Obama, as though he were a one man show.

Yes, Esh, and the BLAME of Bush for EVERYTHING, including the housing debacle that put the financial crisis into motion, was of one man, BY THE LIBERALS.

No Barney Frank, Maxine Waters and "houses for everyone they deserve it whether they can pay for it or not"--it was all Bush's fault.

Both sides do it.

I believe Mitt decided not to go to the view for these reasons:
1) no respect for women. Those mormons love their sister wives....all of them ;)
2)his wife is subservient. The View women are NOT.
3)he didn't have enough time to regurgitate what he's been practicing for his "talk" with them. He cannot interact with people esp women. The first debate worked well for him because he rehersed the personal stories.
4)these women on the View could have him "for breakfast".

He's a coward, really.

I am sorry that there was no apparent investigation into what the Bush administration knew about the 9/11 attacks. Or was there?

Bush wasn't the only one that had a hand in the financial crisis that he left behind. But he did:

- sign two tax cuts
- start two wars

None of which was "paid for" by sensible policies - especially the tax cuts. He took a surplus and turned it into a 1 trillion dollar deficit.

His signature is on that part of the mess.

Why would a man like Romney even want to be in the presence of those foul mouthed old women much less attempt to have polite discourse with them? Polite discourse with those people would never happen--except of course, when it's their idol, Barack Obama.

Those women are mostly rude, crude, talk over one another, aren't the brightest bulbs--including Barbara Walters--and from my view, do nothing but complain and complain and whine and whine.

No wonder they're liberals--that's what they're good at, trashing other people and trashing our country while sitting on their behinds.

ingrid_vc so. CA zone 9

I've mentioned this before but will reiterate: President Obama reads ALL intelligence reports firsthand rather than having them summarized by someone at the meetings. In this way he has the best possible knowledge of what is happening at any time, since he's constantly reading these reports as they come in. You say he can't be bothered to go to the intel meetings. He certainly can be "bothered" to go through reams of paper every day to find out exactly what is happening instead of relying on a secondary source. You've ignored this comment the first time but I'm hoping (against hope) that it will sink in now.

So there you have it. Liberals all sit on their behinds doing nothing but whining. These four women are perfect examples of liberals sitting on their behinds and expecting success to fall in their laps. They certainly could not have earned their success and wealth!

There are every bit as many hard working, contributing liberals as their are conservatives. As a matter of fact the richest , most productive States are all liberal.

Seems to me some spend to much time sitting behind their computers whining about liberals.

According to Ingrid:

"President "Obama reads ALL intelligence reports firsthand rather than having them summarized by someone at the meetings. In this way he has the best possible knowledge of what is happening at any time, since he's constantly reading these reports as they come in. You say he can't be bothered to go to the intel meetings.

I didn't realize you were a member of his personal staff and privvy to what he does, sees and reads everyday.

Oh, but wait..Don't tell me you believe everything you read in the papers or hear on the Liberal TV stations?

Being the devoted Mormon he is, Mitt really thinks women are a step down the ladder from men. Really does he have to answer the tough questions the "old women", (demi's words,)might have when he can go to his totally screened crowd where they HAVE to leave their cellphones and cameras behind and feed his lies to his partisan crowd.

Not according to Biden. They knew nothing. Maybe if they actually attending these meetings they'd know what goes on in the world.

There you go again with that "his wife is subservient." You do not know that. What an insulting cheap shot to his wife.

Obama has all the power he wants, and his ability to pass laws no one wants tells us what he likes to do with his power. He is not a president who wants to govern. He thinks he owns us and the country. He thinks he's our dictator and forgets he works for us, not the other way around, but give him another 4 years and he'll be able to show you 100% of who works for whom.

Yep.

Get ready to pay more income taxes--those of you who pay income taxes.

Get ready to shell out more and get less.

As much as you want "the rich" to fund your lives and this country, they don't have enough.

So who is going to pony up for all of these wonderful programs?

I can see it in 2015--tax returns from the top wage earners, showing their businesses have been dissolved, no capital gains to be taxed at the higher rate or any rate because their investments have been withdrawn, and considerably less taxes owed if any, along with a note to Barack Obama, "Who is John Gault?"

Then what are you going to do?
