He won the nomination on the first ballot with 203 out of 403 delegates. He defeated Darrell Castle of Tennessee, national vice chairman of the Constitution Party; Susan Ducey, a constitutional activist from Kansas; Laurie Roth, of Washington, a columnist and talk show host; and Robby Carr Wells of North Carolina, a former NCAA Division I football coach at Savannah State University. The final vote total was Goode 203, Castle 120, Wells 58, Ducey 15, Roth 6. Jim Clymer, the national chairman of the Constitution Party, was selected as the vice-presidential nominee.

I saw Romney’s speech last night. He can and will win.


Obama gives a good speech too.. Your point is?

Lets look at his record. That is what should be what shows us what Mitt really is..

I’m wearing flame-retardent clothes and prepared for the pings. The “I Won’t Sacrifice My Values” crowd won’t deter me from voting in such a way as to not sacrifice my country to Obozo and his thugs.

People that voted for McCain gave us Romney this time, should he take the nomination.

The GOP just keeps moving left.

The problem is, the GOP is too damn high up the rats asses. Why are conservatives such wusses? We sit at home reloading talking on our computers why libs have head hunts and sit ins? What is breaking point for us? Four more years of a sleazy car salesman or an radical that is putting his feet on OUR desk. Enough is enough. We need to rethink this. Or are we too polite??

Oh, and I will vote for Newt in the CA primary, despite his not running.

there is a tipping point. the problem for many of us is we are the productive class.

that means you, me and most everyone here has full time jobs. Heck, I have 2 (ya. I am a greedy SOB.)

Does not leave much time to stage a sit in or go on a ‘head hunt’..

I attend what I have to, but I have business debt to dig out from under and kids to take care of. I post here on my breaks.

A voter, knowing the history of the last four years under Obama, who won't effectively vote against Obama, if for no other reason than to disrupt what Obama has already set into motion, is stating both that the consequences of Obama's reelection are preferable to his not being reelected and that the voter's actions in making that outcome possible constitute a moral good that is preferable to preventing that outcome.

For all of Romney's many faults and lack of strengths, anyone who believes that another term of Obama is preferable to Romney or that anyone from any party other than the Republican Party has a chance of defeating Obama is either morally defective or certifiably insane. "Yes, but I voted my conscience." Yes, but even the mentally defective and morally degenerate have their own versions of a conscience. The fact that it was "a conscience" and that it "was followed" doesn't mean the outcome is necessarily morally good or politically beneficial.

It does matter - you didn’t bow to evil.

Clean hands are priceless and Newt can stand tall with his patriotic fighting spirit amidst enemies/evil on his every side trying to bring him down. We did right, we chose wisely, we will never regret it.

If Uhbamuh wins this time, we will take a significant step closer to being what every country in Europe already is. Labor and Tories. Liberal and not so liberal. And no, we are not yet at that point.

We are far from any kind of revolt as has been posted about numerous times on this board. The decision for me is simple. Will the people that I support be in a position to influence the GOP candidate or the Phlegmocrat candidate after the election is done? There is no question our chances of having some kind of influence with Romney are far greater than they will ever be with Uhbamuh.

I hear ya.. Got home at 2AM last night, started at 8AM this morning.. still going.. it’s 11PM now.

Spent most of my day repulling over 2 miles of cable at a location.. hot.. sweaty.. up and down a 12 ft ladder...

It’s not fun, but with the wife unable to work while the gears of government turn slowly (shes disabled, type 1, fibro and neropathy caught up with her) there is not much else I can do.

Well.. I could file chapter 7... But that is not the right thing to do.

Obozo DOES NOT give good speeches. Obozo panders to those he knows is already in his pocket. Anyone with more than two working brain cells to rub together is capable of listening to his “talk” and know that the man is a disaster.

Because you have so much influence with the GOP that they pushed a liberal down your throat, and you are justifying voting for him?

Thanks, no.

I won't vote for Romney.

It does matter - you didn’t bow to evil.

Of course, there's always the possibility that your idea of what constitutes evil may simply be defective, making your actions based on that either nonsensical, irrelevant, or dangerous.

if people would quit supporting Mitt all of a sudden.

You, know, personally, I don't know anyone who has or plans to. That's how much he is detested. And if my travels in the next months, I met someone who is - by the time they leave my sight, they would have changed their mind. That's a guarantee. But all bets are off, if they confess to being a liberal, which would more than likely, be the case.

Praying for you and your Wife my FRiend.

My Wife got laid off last Monday and it will be pretty tight around here as well. You are not alone by a long shot.

Take care and don't lose sight of what's important. You and your Wife are fortunate to have each other. God Bless.

No. My vote will not increase Obama's total.

Try again. And be more abusive. That helps when you are trying to sell a crap liberal to a conservative.

I don't know that I'll vote for Goode. The primary isn't over yet, and the ballots haven't been printed for the general.

But I do know that I've been campaigning against Romney and Obama, and will continue to do that.

>Then enjoy Obama’s second term.
>Try that crap with some middle school schoolgirls it might actually work.

Face it, Mitt Romney would be hard pressed to win if he were the only man running. You waste your vote for Romney and I'll waste my vote for Goode.

Given a straight boolean* choice between Obama and Romney, I'd vote for Obama; the reasoning is simple: Obama and Romney are virtually identical policy-wise, so the only effect of "changing horses" is a [false] psychological perception of accomplishment. If we want the policies to be refuted, then we stand a much better chance if we don't have a weakening due to some people [who would otherwise contribute] believing that changing a 'D' to an 'R' *was* a [real] repudiation.

* -- Fortunately, the choice is not a boolean and even if Romney wins the Republican primary I can vote some third party, like cripplecreek.

>voting in such a way that reelects Obozo just destroys America.

Then why vote for Romney? Policy-wise he *is* Obama.
At the least having Obama as President provides a solidly rejected person in office; that is you won’t make excuses for him.
In Romney’s case, how long would it be before you would start rationalizing his bad-policies? (i.e. “I hate him, BUT the alternative was Obama.”)

Great. That chart was good. I copied and emailed it to those I know who don’t keep up.

A vote for Virgil Goode *is* a vote against Obama. Even more so, it is a vote against Obama-lite. Voting *for* Obama or Obama-lite is the problem.

Agree 100% and I will vote for (R)omney. He may be a RINO, but he doesn't hate our country and what it stands for like O and his classless wife.

"Yes, but I voted my conscience." .

Isn't that you what you mittbot are doing?

Here's some of your manipulative gibberish back that goes with that. The fact that it was "a conscience" and that it "was followed" doesn't mean the outcome is necessarily morally good or politically beneficial.

Remember that.
