Romney lied? Gee who would have guessed.

“What the Court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States and that is I will act to repeal Obamacare."

"Well, I'm not getting rid of all of healthcare reform,...Of course there are a number of things that I like in healthcare reform that I'm going to put in place...one is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions can get coverage."

0bama had the democrats ram this bitter legislation (or tax) down our throats and now Romney tells us he's giving us seconds?

This ONE thing means he's not getting my vote. Let 0bama finish trashing Amerika with 4 more years.

One more politician, one lie too many.

I choose to vote Constitution Party, joining my voice with those telling the GOP-e "We're off your plantation."

Wow, I am sure they will take note of that.

The more voices join in that message, the more the GOP-e will take note. Mine will be one more.

A liberal ex-governor from Massachusetts who will repeal Obamacare and believes in free enterprise

Wait, we have one of those running? Is he a third party guy or something? 'Cause he sure isn't on one of the major party tickets.

‘... have to get rid of... Obamacare...so Mitt has my vote.’

Thank you. For Obamacare, other policies and for a new Atty Gen, we must defeat this Administration. Also, it’s possible the next President will have to nominate at least one Supreme Court judge. The REALITY is our next President is either Mr. Obama or Mr. Romney. While Romney may not be a perfect choice, imho, he’s 100x better than the alternative.

Are you late to the party? Disprove either position, at your leisure. Romney has supported repeal of Obamacare and he believes in free enterprise, and that has been stated consistently by him and Ryan.

We currently have a choice of a proven disaster or a likely disaster.

The only logical option we Conservatives have is to elect true Conservatives to other offices in November (especially the House and Senate). It's the only way we can guarantee some representation and hopefully restrict any actions from either a President Obama or a President Romney.

As for FR, don't kid yourself. Both of these guys despise us.

If you are providing a quote, you should provide the source of the quote. Your quote doesn’t look like the full statement.

The mantra has always been repeal and replace. Did you not understand the concept of “replace”? Yes, some people want to repeal and be done, but that isn’t what the majority is pushing for.

Romney can’t repeal Obamacare, or enact new legislation. Both of those require congressional action.

But if Romney signs an executive order wiping out everything he can of Obamacare, and then he signs an executive order putting in place things he is able to do by executive order, that wouldn’t break a promise. And if Congress votes to repeal Obamacare, and then votes a new health care law into place, that also won’t violate that promise.

I don’t care who you vote for. I’m not going to tell you to vote for Romney. But I would hope you would make your decision based on facts, not what you posted in this rant.

Romney has supported repeal of Obamacare

Correction - Romney says he supports repeal of *some* of Obamacare. And of course, this is after he pushed through MassCare, which Obama's crew admits was a blueprint for ObamaCare, so we can see where Romney's proclivities lie.

and he believes in free enterprise

Well, he *says* he does, which is different from actually believing in it.

After all, he just said yesterday that he wants to keep the provisions in ObamaCare that he likes, which includes those requiring insurance companies to take people with pre-existing conditions, and to retain "children" over 26 on their parents' policies.

You can't claim to "support the free market" while simultaneously holding to Romney's publicly stated position (as of yesterday, give it time, it may change again). Either companies freely competing with each other while trying to maximise their own profits are allowed to decide who they offer their services to, or else they are required by the force of the state to provide services against their will. It can't be both at the same time. Romney has told us which he prefers, which puts the lie to any claim that he "supports the free market."

and that has been stated consistently by him and Ryan.

So your contention is that we should believe a politician everytime he or she says something?

The choices have been made. You get to choose on Nov. 6th. Obama or Romney. Couldn't be clearer. Oh, yes, and a thrid party vote is a wasted vote this year, when so much is at stake.

Your turn to be PO'd.

The only one who is pretending is you, pretending to actually have a point.

You actually think the GOP-e cares about you and is paying attention to you? I don’t suffer under that delusion.That train left the station earlier this year.

The reality is, you have two choices by whom you vote for—to harm the nation or to blunt the harm.

In 57 days, the decision will be made.

With you, or without you.

Of the thirteen choices, only two have a chance to win. That's the reality.

But hey, skipping around deliriously singing "fa-lal-la-la-la-la-la" is always an option.

Gee I know. I will show what a true conservative I am by helping to ensure that Obama gets re-elected. Then I can see I told you so. We need to run a true conservative like Ronald Reagan. Unfortunately Ronald Reagan is no longer elegible for office.

As long as a republican crams down socialism/Marxism in mandates, we’re suppose to sigh with relief.

Insurance use to be a business, with competition, not a social handout program stomping on liberty, as in Massachusetts, and now nationally.

Fine, and let's leave it at that. No need for you to attack people because they are voting for Romney in order to prevent Obama from getting another term.

You are free to vote whichever way you want, but that does not change the reality that this year there are only two choices, and either choice will affect the country in tremendous ways, for the remainder of my life, and the lives of my children. To me, it is either good or evil, either for America or against America, for freedom or against freedom.

3rd Parties don't tend to be successful sad but true. I actually voted for Perot so I am speaking from experience and Clinton won with less than 50% of the vote if Perrot had not been in Bush would have won most likely. I will never vote 3rd party again. Maybe at some point it could happen but not yet. RR for me :)

3rd Parties don't tend to be win elections - but a vote for them can be very successful in alerting the GOP that a noteworthy number of conservatives are off the GOP-e plantation.

I’m not a Republican. He isn’t “my” candidate.

Ridicule at will. The Republicans ridicule conservatives frequently. It’s partly why they are struggling.

Partly because Romney is a LOUSY POLITICAL CANDIDATE! Runs for one office after another for decades and pulls off only ONE win. Conservative Idealogy (or lack of) may be playing a role but he isn’t exactly luring all of those apathetic, moderate or liberals to his side either with his methods.

If Republicans were going to back a liberal Republican maybe they should have found one a little better at running a campaign that connects with people. Bush wasn’t a conservative but he pulled it off. He came off more likeable and in tune with the common man even if he wasn’t one. This is on Romney in ways extending far belong whether he has any core political idealogy he won’t abandon in search of only his SECOND political victory.
