Free Republic's Jim Robinson Makes the Turn

Free Republic's Jim Robinson Makes the Turn


punish RINOs in the House
I respect those who are still die-hard for beating Romney, but that is yesterday’s fight. The danger is not in seeming inconsistent–trust me; we left marks all over that Romney fellow, and he will not forget us. Maybe next time we will unseat him like we are about to do to Lugar, and a number of other RINOs. And this is the fight for today: punish RINOs in the House and especially Lugar in the Senate. Tomorrow’s fight is back to the White House to get Obama out of my chair.

their friends could use the help
Those who still toil in the fields of Newt are at great risk of becoming irrelevant, the one thing they must not become. They poke and stab at the bodies of friends and enemies alike from a long-finished battle, while their friends could use the help a valley away, where the fight is now.

to engage on the next fight, disengage from the previous
Jim at Free Republic did the right thing, and must pull his readership back together to allow Free Republic to become once more the hammer of the right. He could stand on the conservative Jihad, stabbing at thee from the heart of Hell etc etc, but the fact is, Freepers need to engage on the next fight, and in order to do that–they must disengage from the previous.

You should, at the least, give a link to the thread that backs up your post. To me "party over principle" means that a person is asked to abandon their core principles merely to ensure that a Party candidate is elected to office. Usually a person has several core principles that they feel strongly about. I'm sure that you have more than one yourself.
So, to me, the question becomes which of your core principles are you going to abandon solely for the sake of Party advancement? And then a person has to ask themselves if they're ready, and willing, to abandon some of their core principles for the sake of the Party, will they abandon all of their core principles for the sake of the Party. Because as soon as you give in and abandon those principles there is a push at the next election for you to abandon even more of your principles because you did so the last time and the Party knows this.

And eventually you have to look at yourself in the mirror and realize that you have no core principles any longer as you've abandoned them over time for nothing more than a short term political victory.

I simply can't sell my birthright (eventually all of my core principles) for a mess of pottage (short term political victory) else I damn my own soul.

Do as you choose. Don't deign to tell me what I must do.

To reward the GOP establishment elite with my vote would make me a hypocrite.
Not going to happen.

The GOP establishment elitists are playing the odds: For every conservative voter they lose, they figure they will pick up 1+ squishes (”independents”). If that turns out to work for them, America’s slide down the toilet of history will never be reversed - - it will only alter the time frame.

Who in good conscience would deliberately be a part of that?

Why are you excerpting from your own blog? I am not going there to read the rest.

Ditto. Romney AND the GOP have made it clear that they are not interested in our votes or support.

If this article was intended to malign or pursuade JimRob, perhaps you could seek a better use for your efforts.

Willard Romney, backstabber of Gov. Palin,
incompetent in Massachusetts for the GOP,
installer of BOTH RomneyCARE and RomneyMarriage,
friend of Soros and Mr. Etch-a-Sketch, himself,
was chosen by the DNC, the MSM,
Soros, Carter, Clinton, AND Obama.

Can any of you figure out why?

“joe fonebone (If you vote for the lesser of two evils, you are still voting for evil.) “

If you don’t vote for the LESSER of two evils then you put the GREATER of two evils one vote ahead.

If you truly believe that Romney will do as much damage in his first (and only) term and Obama WILL DO in his second (of how many more?) term, then you have not been paying attention to Obama.

Do we need Edmund Burke to make a comment?

Pessimistic Conservatives and TEAPartiers should just go to work, ignore the Mittbots, and get Conservative Senators and Representatives a winning spot in the fall election.

Oh, yeah, and prepare to impeach the President some time in late January.

Optimistic Conservatives and TEAPARtiers should go to work, encourage the Mittbots, and still get Conservative Senators and Representatives a winning spot in the fall election.

Oh, yeah, and still prepare to impeach the President some time in late January.

HMM ~ same outcome no matter what we do ~ wonder why that is?

Well, whatever, I love those impeachments, although it'll be more fun to bring in the Mittbots for interrogation than to bring in the Obots. They are so bland and gray.

I call him "Millard (FIllmore) Romney" because if he gets elected he will end up leading tot he downfall of the Republican Party...

Maybe that is what we need....In the long term...

It is fascinating that while Obama is in deep trouble with every demographic, he can still count on help from many Freepers who despise Mitt Romney enough to help him get re-elected.

ordinarily, i do not answer to socialists (mcromney supporters) but in your case I will make one exception....

I do not listen to what people say, I look at what they do.... everything, and I mean EVERYTHING that fubo has done, mcromney did already as a governor....

Look at mcromneys record, and then answer me this question:

Is mcromney a socialist, or not?

I will never, in amy way shape or form, support a socialist. Period.

If you choose to support a socialist, if you refuse to make a stand, if you refuse to see mcromney for the enemy of the republic that he is, then you are truly lost..

in answer to your question, will mcromney do as much damage as fubo? If you look at his record, the answer is YES..

As it stands today there are probably only two possibilities. Either Barack Obama will be re-elected or he will be defeated by Mitt Romney. I am so opposed to Barack Obama that I will even vote for Romney.

But it does not matter who Jim Robinson votes for as President. Nor does it matter who I or any other Freeper prefer to see in the White House.

What matters is the Senate and the House of Representatives. The real work for conservatives in this election is to push as hard as possible to see that conservatives control both houses in January 2013.

If Obama wins the White House the only check to his increasingly socialist plan to “transform” America will be a Congress with the wherewithal to stand up to him.

If Romney wins the White House the only check to his innate, closet progressivism will be a Congress with the wherewithal to stand up to him.

So it is time to put down the weapons that we use to eviscerate each other. Vote for whomever you wish for President. We must recognize that we must work together to ensure that regardless of who occupies the White House, Congress will be able to perform its checks and balances role.

I did the same thing, mountainlion. But "we got screwed" because we lost the election and Obama won. If you sit this one out by casting a meaningless vote, you'll only be helping Obama to a second term.

Huh?

You DON’T vote at all, right? How does that put GOOD one vote ahead? It may make you feel better, but it does nothing to stop the GREATER EVIL.

If you do vote for the LESSER of two evils, your vote at least balances/cancels a vote for the GREATER evil.

Or, more accurately, it doesn’t fit your meme.

I will vote for a conservative for President. Period. And since if Romney Republicans want to get their guy elected, you need to convince me otherwise.

Here’s a hint: that ain’t how you do it.

No, you/we didn’t get screwed because we voted for Sarah. We got screwed by the democrat cheating machine and the nitwits who would not vote for McCain thereby throwing a defacto vote to obama. For God’s sake! I didn’t want Mitt but the choice between him and obama is like the choice between a small bug bite on the ass and obama’s socialist dictatorship being shoved up our asses to the ruin of the country. If you don’t at least vote to remove obama then you are throwing a vote to him and throwing the Republic and the Constitution down the crapper. With Mitt the twit at least there is a chance to save the nation; with obama there is none.

Scare tactics. A battle is far more manageable with an opponent exposed on the field before us. I prefer that over a battle with an opponent hiding in my team's uniform at my back. There is no victory when liberal defeats liberal. There is only victory when conservative overcomes liberal. Rather than picking the lesser of two evils, I'm choosing Goode.

I don’t know where to start with how flawed that logic is. Every vote that does not go to Romney puts the real evil another vote in the lead. The only “good” vote that is put ahead is in your mind.

It IS ABO, your guys and mine did not get the nomination, get that into your hard heads!
