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 yesterdays fight. The danger is not in seeming inconsistenttrust 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. Tomorrows 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 thatthey must disengage from the previous.

Hate to burst any bubbles but the GOP is NOT going to put up any impeachment. They are the other corrupt faction.
Screw the mittbots, they’re democrats without the courage to admit it.
Call me anything you like.
I want Obama out of the White House and I don’t GAF who I have to vote for to do it.
I don’t like Romney, if he wins I will fight him as hard as I now fight Obama, but I will vote for him if that’s what it takes.
Obama did a bit of cheating with students, but he got a larger turnout due mostly to free beer at the free concerts following the speeches, and McCain canceled or suspended his campaign at a critical moment.
He used the financial crisis as his excuse ~ frankly I think he had a stroke ~ not a big one but one enough to screw him up ~ so he used a financial crisis as cover for getting medical treatment.
He was never the same after that.
Just out of curiosity, do you guys bitch on other forums when someone posts a thread from FR?
4 more years of The One will kill this country. If you want a more conservative candidate next time, support them; otherwise perhaps the GOP is no longer conservative. Regardless, it comes down to Romney vs. Obama. Either someone who is at least half decent, or more Hope and Change.
I think impeachments work better if they are started as soon as possible ~ preferably before all the nominations are in.
“I anxiously await the impeachment, conviction, and then the punishment.”
Do you seriously believe that this Congress will Impeach Obama, let alone Try him & Convict him?
What would Obama do if Impeachment proceedings began? He knows he is on a roll. If he is reelected, nothing will restrain him (or the people who put him there).

stupid MSM protecting US.

At the risk of upsetting a few people....
Ya’ll can sit on your as* and complain, if you like, but THE PRIMARY was the time to air all of this out. I’m sorry Jesus Christ and Sarah Palin decided not to run, but there you have it.
I KNOW what another four years of Obama means to my daughter’s future, and I am going to work my ass off to get Romney elected. The time for sitting at home and complaining is OVER, FOLKS.
The very future of this nation is at stake. If you can sit idly by, acting like a brat that didn’t get the toy they wanted at Walmart, while the Marxists/Maoists wreck this nation, you don’t deserve to be called an AMERICAN.
Sorry, but I don’t hate my kid enough to damn her with what’s coming if we don’t act.
We need a big victory next year that takes Boling and the Mittbots in the Virginia Governor's race and tanks them in the caucuses and primaries.
If Romney has lost by then, it'll be just deserts for Boling and that crowd. If Romney won, it'll be a message to him to get his Socialist nonsense back in his Massachusetts briefcase and toss it in the potomac.
I'd prefer an early impeachment, but a late impeachment is OK too.
I'm not all that picky.
That kind of scum is hard to wash off!
You seem unclear on the concept of blogpimping.
We need to get that impeachment started early ~
Anybody - and I do mean anybody - who enables the traitorous bastard, through action or inaction, is no different.
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
We usually have about 1.5 million people vote in Virginia primaries, or even dull midterm elections.
We had about 15% of that turn out ~ that meant that 800,000 or so votes FOR GINGRICH didn't get counted.
That sort of thing will not be easily forgotten.
Romney really won only a handful of races. He barely got to 50% in the ones he did win.
I am afraid he didn't show the power a candidate really needs, ideologically, or in terms of personal charisma. Obama is an ignorant lout but he at least sounds friendly ~ his peeps will still vote for him. So don't imagine that technical "wins" to get delegates make you a winner.
Suppose you explain a single way, even ONE, in which Romney will do less damage than 0bummer. With a complicit Congress (RINOs and Dims) there is a possibility he could be worse than 0bummer who at least faces a modicum of opposition in Congress.
I noticed that. But the danger with echo chambers, where disagreement is mocked and ridiculed without thoughtful argument, is that reason can be totally abandoned. I believe that a second Obama term will be a fatal disaster for America regardless of whether Conservatives take both the House and Senate, and here's why...
Many of the new laws enacted in the early, veto-proof half of Obama's term were intentionally worded to grant broad, discretionary powers to unelected cabinet secretaries. Never before has Congress intentionally abrogated its powers to the Executive branch in the texts of its laws. If Obama is re-elected, he will have virtual dictatorial powers in many areas - granted by Congress and enacted in law. And if Obama wins another term, it won't matter if he loses the Senate, since he will veto any Congressional attempt to repeal or override those existing laws.
That is why I will vote for Romney against Obama. I would much rather have a Conservative congress constantly nudging a RINO to the right than fighting a desperate battle against an entrenched Communist with dictatorial powers.
I said I’m not picky. They can impeach Obama or Romney ~ either one will be satisfactory. All same thing GI. Bring out the large cooking pots please!
That is certainly possible. That may may also explain why I couldn't care less. Carry on.
The simple truth is as long as we continue t vote for people Obama and Romney things are only going to get worse.
We should demand that we count the votes.
He’s the designated loser who will be chopped, pressed, and formed by the Chicago/0bama thug machine just before they throw him into the sausage grinder. Politically speaking, of course.
That's political revenge but I volunteer to impose punishment if there's a conviction after an impeachment.
None of these people get to treat me like a t--d and get away with it ~ NOT EVER!
You’d best go tell Mitt that to his face.
You said” a single way”, so here goes.
ROMNEY UNDERSTANDS HOW BUSINESS OPERATES, Obama does not.
As someone once said, IT”S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!
Doesn't matter between these two guys which one gets elected. It's a two for the price of one deal, only the price is very, very, very high ~
You do realize that to work off our debt we're going to have to rent out our military forces to local factions.
That is one of the most horrific pictures of Romney ever!!! How the Hell did he win most of the primaries??? That smarmy, grinning idiot. I’ll have to vote absentee, so I can take a shot of whiskey after I decide on a Write In or Romney.
Praying for a brokered convention.
That assertion in not evident in the way he operated as Mass.Gov #fail
Some of us are still trying to defeat Obama. I see that some are dead-set against that. We’ll see.
All three of my preferred candidates are history, and we’ve been set up by the GOP. Fine. Assault into the ambush. Elect the guy and gain at least some control. If he wins without conservative support, we will have no say, and if he loses, there will be serious repercussions. And if you think the last four years were bad, imagine them without winning in 2010. Ahem.
My goal with the blog post is to push what’s going on here out to folks who may not be following the goings-on at FR. I don’t make money from the blog (rather the opposite), and I thank you for the pimp juice and the fine, fine hat.
Complain all you want about format and etiquette, but get busy. Some of us are still trying to defeat Obama.
How can you say this when FUBO consistently walks around Congress whenever he pleases? It’s essential to get him out of the people’s house.
So why did you excerpt it then?
And I might add that more is at stake than the issues FUBO has walked around Congress on, egregious as those usurpations of Congress’s power were.
Our Constitution is at stake if we allow this to stand.
No honeymoon or waiting to see what he does.
Of course the left will use that against Romney and us as well so it's very possible in 2016 we'll be faced with the same kind of election we have this time and the possibility is strong that the left will take back the White House along with the House and Senate.
The threat of socialism no matter what flavor, Obama or Romney, is a puss blister on The Republic and it needs popped NOW!
“and that will be WITHOUT my vote BTW”
Barack Obama appreciates your non-vote.
Your children, however, will be cussing your name for it, long after you are gone.
He gave up when FUBO broke his promise and decided not to do public financing. McCain has been around long enough to be properly cynical about the importance of money. He said “the dam has broken” and he was correct. Right here on FR we watched all the illegal contributions pour in, remember? FUBO is not even a legally elected president, in more ways than one.
"Do?" I wouldn't do anything....we all make our own decisions, right?
Well, you could start with the fact that 0+1 does not equal -1 as you seem to believe.
As I posted upthread, if you Romney Republicans want your guy to win, you need my vote a heck of a lot more than I need yours.
So, in the interests of that argument, please explain how a vote for a known progressive, giving him control of the party apparatus of the supposedly right-of-center party in this country, advances the cause of conservatism. After all, this is the purpose of this website.
I have had it up to my back teeth with the flawed argument that voting for an actual conservative for President is somehow a vote for Baraq. It's wrong by every possible definition. It's a vote FOR good.
Many of us will not be turning left. Please rejoin us after we beat your candidate in November.
Anybody - and I do mean anybody - who enables the traitorous bastard, through action or inaction, is no different."
Again today? :::yawn:::
You might want to take that issue up with your candidate. A woman at one of his rallies told him Obama was a traitor, and when asked if he agreed, said, "Of course not!"
That's easy. We need both houses of Congress. And not just Republican control, but conservative control. They can stand up to him and prevent his "walking around Congress.' But even if it is Romney we still need a conservative Congress and control of both houses to keep him in check as well.
One of the reasons the rich get rich is because they don't pay for things they don't have to pay for and they are cheap tippers.
It's highly unlikely Romney will hire on any Conservatives into his cabinet positions or the other appointed positions. First off he doesn't even know any Conservatives, and only a few more Republicans.
He is as much an outsider to this party as is Obama ~ and it's by his choice.
There's every opportunity here for the entire national campaign to fail simply because this guy can't link up with the party!
I assume you refer to Romney is the poster's candidate.
And who might this paragon be who will "beat" Romney in November?
I agree with your last sentence, but all the conservative congress members in the world will not stop FUBO. He takes pleasure in doing what he sees as the will of the rest of the world and overriding his own country’s voice.
He has effectively negated our elections, since he treads right over our legitimately elected officials.
Don’t know how I’ve missed you so far.
I loathe you.
