Newsweek Recycles 'Wimp' Label to Attack Romney

By Bobby Eberle

Everybody knows that Newsweek is a left-wing rag that is on the verge of going under. But one would think they would at least be original in their attacks. As it turns out, their latest "news" feature is a recycled hit piece that they first used against President George H. W. Bush. That's right... The so-called "wimp factor" is back again.

As reported by BuzzFeed.com, the latest cover of Newsweek magazine shows a picture of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The headline reads, "Romney: The Wimp Factor" The subheadline reads, "Is he just too insecure to be president?"

Back in 1987, Newsweek's cover read, "Fighting the 'Wimp Factor.'" In the feature story, Bush is described as having a "potentially crippling handicap." What is it, you ask? As the Newsweek author writes, it is "a perception that he isn't strong enough or tough enough for the challenges of the Oval Office. That he is, in a single mean word, a wimp."

The label has left Bush's friends and family pained and perplexed. "He's been reduced to a cartoon," fumes son Jeb. (Literally. Last week the "Doonesbury" strip portrayed voters matter-of-factly describing Bush as a wimp.) In campaign that is supposedly putting a premium on character, Bush's admirers ask, doesn't it matter that he is a war hero, that he is decentand honorable, that he has bounced back from personal and political adversity?

Now, fast forward to 2012, and Newsweek is doing the same thing. The intro paragraph of the feature story on Mitt Romney reads, "Dodging reporters, fearing his base, hiding his taxes--is Mitt Romney just too insecure to be president? In Newsweek, Michael Tomasky surveys a history of presidential manliness and asks just where Mitt would fit amid the studly swagger of Dubya and Reagan."

Give me a break. Dodging reporters and hiding taxes? Come on! Romney does interview after interview. He has released his tax records. Where he has drawn the line is at the simple fact that no matter what he releases, the left just ask for more and then says, "Well what are you hiding?" Romney isn't being a wimp... he's being smart.

Here's an excerpt from the feature by Tomasky:

He's kind of lame, and he's really ... annoying. He keeps saying these ... things, these incredibly off-key things. Then he apologizes immediately--with all the sincerity of a hostage. Or maybe he doesn't: sometimes he whines about the subsequent attacks on him. But the one thing he never does? Man up, double down, take his lumps.

And this is objective journalism?

Here's Romney's response:

What's amazing is that Newsweek continues to publish the same left-wing garbage over and over again, and then they wonder why their circulation is dropping like a rock?

In a story covered by Reuters, we learn that the corporation which owns Newsweek is considering stopping the presses and moving the publication to online only.

"Newsweek is not necessarily a distraction for IAC management, though investors may get perturbed about it not being profitable and weighing on the company's bottom line," said Kerry Rice, an analyst with Needham & Co.

So... as the magazine continues to tank, it continues to spew its propaganda. These are exactly the publications that sit on coffee tables in waiting rooms across the country, just waiting to be read as "information" or "unbiased reporting." I'm pretty sure those days are gone for good.

      When I go to the doctor’s office or anywhere I have to sit and wait awhile; I take along the good ole reliable King James Bible. Every type of ‘true story’ one can imagine to keep read up on. The details and prophecies are as up to date as this afternoon’s newspaper and a lot more truthful.
      Newsweek lost their credibility long ago to ‘voice’ the ‘scumbag lib’ message.

    When Mitt Romney acknowledged Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel,
    he showed more courage than the rest of the exec. and legislative
    branches put together! (Genesis Ch.12, verse 3 still applies!)

    Newsweek should use softer paper in their magazines so we can use
    it for Kleenex in the waiting rooms of our nation~

    A new book out in August states:
    Obama canceled the “kill” mission in January 2011, again in February, and a third time in March. Obama’s close adviser Valerie Jarrett persuaded him to hold off each time, according to the book.

    Miniter, a two-time New York Times best-selling author, cites an unnamed source with Joint Special Operations Command who had direct knowledge of the operation and its planning.

    Obama administration officials also said after the raid that the president had delayed giving the order to kill the arch-terrorist the day before the operation was carried out, in what turned out to be his fourth moment of indecision. At the time, the White House blamed the delay on unfavorable weather conditions near bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

    But when Miniter obtained that day’s weather reports from the U.S. Air Force Combat Meteorological Center, he said, they showed ideal conditions for the SEALs to carry out their orders.

    I doubt if President Romney would have his decisions made by an unelected “Advisor”

    I think Newsweek has a point. Every one in America knows where Obama stands on a wide-range of issues and Americans appreciate politicians who lay out their agenda. Likewise, Obama is out to define Romney the way Bush campaign defined Kerry.

    Simply put, Obama is taking chances and Romney is not. If Romney were sitting on a lead in popular opinion and the electoral college, maybe he could win with a no-campaign campaign, but he’s not the right personality so that’s not going to happen.

    Romney needs to let the country know what he stands for. So far, he has said he is going to end Obamacare, but as the grandfather of the program, voters are having a hard time believing that. Hopefully, his campaign will start laying out what Gov Romney is all about soon… or we’ll start seeing more stories like this one in Newsweek.

      “Romney needs to let the country know what he stands for.”

      Obviously you haven’t been following Romney very closely. He has stated many things that he believes or things that need changing.

      However, why would anyone want to stand before the population and state “what he is going to do”? If he adheres to the Constitution, what he is going to do depends a lot on which party has control of Congress and wants to do what’s best for the nation.

      I hope you remember that Obama got elected on campaign slogans “hope and change” and “yes we can”. The only thing he “said he would do” is fundamentally transform America and no one had the foresight to ask him what he meant by that. Now those same people want to criticize Romney because he doesn’t release very specific details on every issue so they can find things to attack.

      Let’s face the fact that we have two options in the upcoming election–four more years of Obama misery or a different direction with a different president and hopefully a different Congress.

      Yes, we definitely know what Obama stands for and we do not like any of it. He is the most radical and devisive man ever elected President and his socialist policies have put the country into a nose dive. A lot of the poor performance of the Obama administration is due to his basic lack of experience due to never really ever having had a real job or held any form of real leadership position and the fact that most of his appointees are from academia and have never worked in our private economy. They have failed to effectively deal with our economy and huge unemployment problems and are spending the country into an eminent financial disaster.

      Mitt Romney is acknowledged as a very successful businessman and state Governor and has demonstrated his ability to take on complex problems and fixing them (like the 2002 Olympics) but is a rather humble man and doesn’t go around bragging about himself. His biggest flaw is that he is not a consummate politician and therefore says what he thinks and believes instead always “spinning” his comments based on political implications.

      It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out who would have the best chance of dealing with our economic and financial problems and, it is not Obama (in case you couldn’t figure it out).

      To feduptaxpayer: You can learn what Romney is all about very soon: listen to him. Start with his response on FTN posted above. (He didn’t even need a teleprompter!) The essence of Romney is all about everything Obama is not, and that’s just one reason we like him. His actual record–your misjudgment of what he “grandfathered” notwithstanding–bears the rest of the reasons we like him.

    I dropped Newsweek sometime ago but perhaps it is time to begin reading it again. You mention where does he draw the line in releasing his tax information? Didn’t he release only one year of information? I understand that when his father ran, he released several years. If that is true, perhaps he could do the same. You keep hearing rumors that he has all this money scattered throughout various countries so he doesn’t have to pay taxes on it. Wouldn’t releasing the information, as a number of Republicans have also requested, squash these rumors? At least if they are rumors. Another thing that bothers me a little if true. I read somewhere that one of his plans was to eliminate all taxes on foreign profits. That would seem to me a huge reason for corporations to move outside of the U.S. instead of hiring Americans.

      He released three years of returns. So how far back does he need to go? For crying out loud, stick to the issues and leave all the irrelevant history alone. As far as him being the “grandfather” of ObmamCare is concerned, if people would drop the hysterics and pay freaking attention, they would realize that what Romney advocates is STATES’ RIGHTS. He is saying that STATES have a right to enact this type of legislation, but that the federal government should keep its nose out of it. That’s why he would repeal ObamaCare; it is NOT a contradiction.

They really need to start to take the fight to Obozo or they are going to lose again. To hell with PC, take off the gloves, and get down to it. The country is at stake. I am not sure, what I will get with Romney, but I know damn well what I will get from the Obozo back in power. GOD save us all from the evil one.

      I couldn’t agree with you more Jenersea. I’m s till waiting for Obama to release his college transcripts and law thesis which he is keeping locked up for some reason. He spent a million dollars hiding his true birth certificate when all he had to do is spend about $15 to release a real one. To Newsweek and other lib publications like that I say no wonder you’re going down. Like the old cliche says “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. I really don’t care if Romney releases his taxes or not. His philanthropy and starting up many new companies for jobs and now going to Isreal is enough for me to back him.

      At least Romney is a Natural Born American Citizen, Constitutionally eligible for the Presidency. Obama is not, and as such has never even been eligible to be the President of the United States.

      Think about it … how can you possibly suggest that you are a Proud American, if you aren’t proud enough of your birth certificate (or your naturalization) to show it. It doesn’t get much more fundamental than that.

      Obama has somehow pulled off the biggest coup in the history of our country … to be Constitutionally ineligible and yet be elected President. And people want to cry “foul” at old tax records … asinine … utterly asinine.

      We are a country full of fools and the intelligent world would be laughing aloud at us, if it weren’t for the fact that Obama is so dangerous to so many while purporting to be helping so many.

      I hope that someday we’ll have a President with enough “guts” to reveal Obama’s “Presidentially Sealed” information and show him for the fraud that he is such that he was NEVER entitled to “Presidential Sealed” priveleges to begin with … and let the American people know that they were defrauded. We need to have a country of people that are capable of discernment rather than followers of “feel good rhetoric”. And that will need to start by proving Obama to be the fraudulent person that he is.

    What Mitt thinks about all aspects of the job of being president is in his book “No Apology.” The problem is too few people have the initiative to read it. I hope after the convention, when the Republican platform is in place, Mitt will begin to spell out what he will do. If he did it now, it would be old news by November.

    Can you imagine what would happen if Newsweek ran a similar cover with Obama and referred to him as a wimp? They would not only be accurate but they would never the courage if they believed it to be true. The left would almost certainly instigate a violent demonstration in front of their offices.

    I remember a time, just a few short years ago, when we could turn on the news and see unbiased reporting and articles. If the President did something displeasing to the American people, we would hear or see it. If the President did something great for America, that too would be heard and seen on the news.

    The media of today is simply as rich in content as a rag mag, and so obviously left that it screams in red.
    I want to be able to turn on my TV to a Media reporter of my choice, and get the truth, no matter how much it hurts, or elates those at whom it is pointed.
    We expect truth in advertising, and have on many occasions, brought down companies who deliberately alter facts to give their products a leading edge, but we sit back and watch just about any news channel bash the accusers, instead of the accusees.
    The darling boy who sits in the Presidents chair, according to their reporting, can do absolutely no wrong, regardless of how much it might be detrimental to America and it’s people.
    What exactly is it, which makes them coo and coddle this error in judgment who runs our Country?. How is it that, unlike most Americans, they seem to miss sight of the damage he is doing to the Country?.
    I believe it is simply due to the fact that they are in the pocket of, and puppets for, the likes of George Soros, who holds all the strings which keep this Pretentious President moving the way the wallets of the very wealthy tell him to move and act. He is totally beholdin to so many groups, organizations, and individuals who have fed his campaign coffers, that he has to give huge bailout sums to even Companys which are practiced at going bankrupt by bad management, making bad choices.
    Fortunately, we do have one news outlet which, for the most part, gives the news based upon facts and reality, not fantasy, and obligation. Fox news stands pretty much alone in their fairly honest reporting of the news as it happens, and how it happens, but at times I see too that they give in to the forces of the left. I am sure this happens due to the fact that if they hit too hard, too consistently, their media too will be bought out, and become the Icing which flows over this ALMOST A PRESIDENT, who now runs our Country.
    Bring back the commentators and article writers of old, who did their reporting in honesty, and were actually on the side of their viewers/readers. Not in the pockets, and on the take, from those who would sell our Country to another Country just to see it fail.
    We are headed the direction of catastrophe, and very much as a Country which is lead to fail. We are headed towards Communism, Marxism, and Muslimism, and cannot get our media to go along with what’s right, but instead with the LEFT.

    TAKE OUT THE TRASH IN NOVEMBER,
    AND LEAVE ONE MORE SOUL JOBLESS,
    ALONG WITH HIS CZARS AND MINIONS.

      I think the reason the media is still defending Obama is the fact that they were bamboozled by this man during 2007, they all stood behind him, and even though a lot of them realize they were duped, they also realize that IF they abandon Obama it is not only a repudiation of him but a repudiation of themselves. The liberal media is too arrogant to publicly state they were duped and change course.

    Actually, if you have read the book “The Amateur” you would know who wears the pants in the Whitehouse, and it isn’t Barack Obama. The power behind the Whitehouse is divided between two people who really direct traffic (who gets in to see the President) and many policy decisions including writing the President’s speeches. Those two people are Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama. Barack Obama does not make any important decisions without running it by these two first.

    Mitt insecure? Why would a man who has $250,000,000, a loving family, including 5 good-looking, strong sons and a gorgeous wife, a stellar business career and an abiding religious faith feel insecure? A wimp? I would like to hear about Obama’s athletic prowess. I saw him throw out the first pitch at a ballgame. Girls throw better. The guy is light in his loafers and limp in his wrists. The best game he ever played was at a gay Chicago bath house!

      Dont forget Obama’s camp tried to portray Gov Romney as a ruthless CEO. Talk about flip flopping all over, oops, so sorry, pardon me, evolving. Silly me, how could I forget, Libs/Dems evolve but us stupid conservatives flip flop

    Mitt Romney and George Bush are anything but wimps!
    The wimps reside where everyone is a clone of the progressive movement Obama, Jarrett, Axelrod, Emanuel, Schumer,Leahyy, Reid, Pelosi, Boxer,Finestinee, Weiner, Wassermann-Ditz, Chris Mathews, Bob Beckel, AlanColmess, Bill Maher, Matt Damon, and hundreds ofotherss who are cowards and ignorant of history. How can anyone compare those listed with Mitt Romney andGeorgee bush who are two of the finest men America has produced.

      Of course Newsweek would consider all those lefty stooges to be heroes.

    This is another in what is getting to be a long line of journalistic low blows by Newsweek. Among the other winners:
    “How do you solve a problem like Sarah?” (featuring Sarah Palin in a photoshopped picture on the cover showing her in pair of running shorts), “We are all socialists now!”, “The first gay President” (picturing Obama with a halo). There have been others but I’m getting nauseated just trying to remember them.

      Another one of their sensationalistic covers came to mind shortly after I posted this: “The Queen of Rage” portraying Michele Bachmann with the camera shot deliberately making her eyes looked crazed.

    Someone decided a little payback was in order, and this couldn’t be more appropriate. Check it out: http://triangle.johnlocke.org/blog/?p=14969
