Skip to comments.Conservative “expert” purists have to recognize people are voting AGAINST Obama not FOR Romney
Posted on 07/05/2012 10:40:20 AM PDT by jmaroneps37
The Drudge Report carries a picture of Mitt Romney jet skiing with his wife Oh no thats it Barack Obama will cruise to reelection because all is lost!
A few people, who weve heard of, have declared Romneys campaign virtually dead because THEY dont like his response to the two worst decisions from the Supreme Court.
These comments are, of course well meaning, but they remind us of the wide gap between grass roots activist TEA party conservative voters and conservative leaders who now want to run in front of the parade to appear to be relevant.
There is a huge surge of enthusiasm to get rid of Barack Obama that is happening in the streets and on conservative internet meeting places that will flush Barack Obama away in November. How can these experts not know this?
In my small but reliable poll 66% my overwhelmingly conservative readers said they were voting AGAINST Barack Obama and just 24% said they were voting FOR Mitt Romney! The large national polls wont ask this question but that doesnt alter the truth.
Our expert conservative leaders dont yet understand that not only will conservative voters crawl through broken glass to vote against Obama, BUT more to the point, legions of Americans, especially White voters, who just desperately want Obama gone will see ROMNEY as the name on the toilet bowl handle that must be pulled down to flush away Barack Obama Americas foulest mistake.
Over the past two years Obamas nationally televised speeches have drawn fewer and fewer listeners. This is because Americans dont care what he has to say, they want him gone.
Regardless of what he has done, Obama has not gotten ANY lasting poll bounce because Americans dont care what he does, they want

Do you really think that Romney will fire IG’s who do their job?
Do you really think that Romney will just decide that some laws won’t get defended in court?
Will Romney choose an AG who only prosecutes people of a certain skin tone?
Will Romney take the money from secured investors and give it to the unions?
Will Romney take over companies and make them extensions of the government?
Will Romney put people on terrorist lists because they support individual freedom?
Will Romney tell people to snitch on each other if they hold views different than his own, and then use that information to potentially attack the person’s ability to communicate with others?
Will Romney tell Israel’s secrets so they are not able to keep Iran from getting nuclear bombs?
Will Romney give away sensitive information about our SEALS, in order to get some credit for a military operation that he refused to take any responsibility for if anything went wrong? Will Romney put dozens of SEALS on one helicopter so that leaked info will allow all of them to be shot down in a retaliatory strike right after it became evident that the SEALS deserved all of the credit for the Bin Laden operation, and Obama was barely involved at all?
Will Romney make a treaty with Russia - and promise Medvedev even more “latitude” to do as Russia wants - to stop developing missile defense for ourselves and our allies while working to ensure that our radical enemy, Iran, gets nukes that it already has the delivery system to be able to deliver to our country and our allies?
Will Romney invite into the White House and appoint as his advisors communist terrorists such as Bill Ayers, mafia type people like the Teamsters guy, Louis Farrakhan and the New Black Panthers, and other Muslim terrorists such as Muslim Brotherhood, etc?
Will Romney have a cabinet that belongs on the DHS’s terrorist watchlist?
Will Romney arm Mexican cartels with untrackable guns without cooperating with Mexico? Will he TRY to cause gun deaths so he can get rid of the 2nd Amendment?
I am not a great fan of Romney. Romneycare forcing Catholic hospitals to perform abortions scares the heck out of me. The lawless shenanigans that the establishment used to get Romney as the nominee curdles my blood. I hear what you’re saying.
But I cannot believe that he would install lawless people to take over the whole infrastructure and get rid of all the means of accountability. I cannot believe that he would TRY to destroy the US economy.
Mitt Romney is flawed, but I do not believe he is an Adolf Hitler. Obama, on the other hand, has shown us that life, the rule of law, and truth mean absolutely nothing to him, and the people he values and listens to mirror the kind of people Hitler installed to do his work.
I wonder how many people wished they would have voted for somebody else after Hitler made his lawlessness apparent.
Go support the pro-choice democrat socialist then. Nothing I can do about it.
If the Soros communist-Islamist coup gets an Islamist regime under sharia installed within the next 4 years, what will it do to your hopes of getting Scott Walker elected in 2016?
You’re looking at long-term when the US has its arms and legs butchered off and is bleeding out on the floor. We don’t have that luxury. If we don’t apply a tourniquet now we will be dead before 2016 ever gets here.
By the way, the answer is, generally, “no.” He will destroy the republic with a much nicer Republican smiley face painted on it all.
And with the assistance of the very folks who should be fighting him: Republican “conservatives.”
At least with Romney conservatives have a seat at the table, which is vastly superior to the current situation.
Which would you prefer: living under the cancer of Romney for 8 years, or being decapitated by Obama within one year?
If a pro-choice democrat socialist was the only doctor that could apply a tourniquet to save my child’s life, I would rather do that than have my child’s blood on my own hands because I refused the help that was available to me at the time.
If conservatives roll over and forget conservatism once the immediate crisis is over then what you say is true.
But if we die from the immediate crisis we’ll never even have the CHANCE to fight for conservatism.
We need to live to fight another day. Of course that can be an excuse to just live and then never take up the fight later on. But for sure we can’t take up the fight if we’re already dead. And if Obama is re-elected I guarantee that this country will be dead before 2016 ever gets here.
He’s not here to help you or your child. He’s here to help himself, and to gain power at any cost. You’re mistaken, and your analogy is not apt.
Suppose that the miraculous happens and Obama is removed from office within the next 4 years.
Who do you think Joe Biden is going to appoint to the court?
They're already doing it, in droves.
And the results are ugly, and utterly unprincipled, and despicable.
The creation of a completely unprincipled "conservative" electorate is infinitely more dangerous to the existence of this republic than Barack Obama could ever be.
Because, they are the only group of folks who represent any hope for saving the republic.
If that's gone, it's all gone, no matter who you put in office.
Corrupt politicians have been gaining at others’ expenses since Adam and Eve left the Garden. What Obama is doing is a totally different ballgame. The guy is out to get rid of 90% of the world’s population and has said that he supports the Muslim agenda (which is the destruction of the US and Israel and the institution of worldwide sharia), and he is acquiring the power to do exactly that.
His puppet-master has said he is out to destroy capitalism and the US forever - and he is amassing the allies (communists and Islamists all over the globe), the infrastructure (all the powers, authority, control, and technologies of the most powerful country in the world), and the permission (through threatened, hand-tied judges and other systems of accountability) to do exactly that.
A person can live with fleas that feed off the host animal. They can’t live with pirannhas. Romney well may be the former, as you say. But Obama and Soros are DEFINITELY the latter.
If by having fleas I could rid myself of the pirhannas I’d choose that any day of the week.
Living with cancer for 8 years doesn’t mean you’re dead. Within those 8 years somebody could find a cure.
No they don't!
And by jumping on his bandwagon without making him for your vote in the upcomming election, you have forfeited any seat at the table.
>people are voting AGAINST Obama not FOR Romney<
That about sums it up. I am voting against 0bama and I am not voting for Romney.
This author has not a clue.
Am I unprincipled?
It was people adhering to the principle of voting only for THEIR “pure” conservative candidate, rather than settling on an acceptable conservative and avoiding splitting the conservative vote, which got us Romney. Was that people being “unprincipled”, being “principled”, or just being short-sighted?
It sounds like what bothers you is pride. If Romney would just acknowledge that he needs you, then he would be more palatable. What you dont like about him is that he doesnt honor you, doesnt woo you as if you mattered very much. Its an understandable feeling - one that I think we all have - and yet it is not helpful to nurse that feeling right now.
I dont want my childs doctor to woo me. I want him to do the job at hand - keeping someone I love from dying. I love America. She is being systematically gunned down. I dont care how rude the sheriff is to me, as long as he stops those I love from getting gunned down. In a crisis situation like this, I dont have the luxury of accepting help only from those who woo me or show me how important they think *I* am. All that matters is if they will do what it takes to make sure my loved ones are not killed off. If that person gets us out of the immediate crisis, THEN we can go on to the luxury of building positive interpersonal relationships. But in a crisis where life and death are literally on the line, interpersonal conflicts are a luxury we cant afford to waste time on.
----------------------- God might also use Obama to wake up the Christians in this country to see
where our true alliances are; do we trust God or a man. Will we do what is right and stand against evil when we see it or will we give into the pressure and go with someone we know is evil and corrupt. God gave us the wisdom and discernment to search out the truth and act as HE commanded us. Every person is imperfect, but when you see someone who forced 5 yr olds to be brainwashed into the gay lifestyle & put $50 abortions in his healthcare & forced the Catholic Church to leave MA after they have been providing adoption serves for 109 years, all because they would not let gays adopt children, you know that person is evil. Romney is not the typical politician who lies here or there. He is a radical leftist who is taking advantage of people who are scared of Obama. The gop wanted him because they know who he is and that he will get the liberal agenda through and then they won't have to fight those battles anymore.
Social conservatives don't "need" to be acknowledged. We already know Romney will not meet with us. If romney was really prolife, profamily.....he would have no problem meeting with us; he would sign the pro-life pledge. I am sick of people calling us Obama lovers because we won't vote for someone who is socially just like Obama. We don't need him, HE needs us. And no, it is not pride speaking, it's reality. I am trying to show people what a hypocrite some people around here are. Blame us for not voting for their guy, while not expecting ANYTHING FROM HIM. He and the gop was hoping that Obama was so damaged that even he would be leading by several points. He may one day reach out when he sees he can't win without us, but it will be too late because we now know who he really is. He can't keep a promise to us and to the log cabin republicans and everyone knows that.
I also am trying to point out to Christians who are voting for Romney, that THEY will be helping him pass gay marriage and other liberal policies across this country. Many voting for Romney, KNOWS he is not pro-life, pro-familly, pro-gun, against cap & trade..... but they don't care. They say they don't like him & scream how scared they are of Obama, but won't demand anything from him now. Once he's in it will be too late, just like with Obama. Most prolifers won't sell there souls for a person who they know is against everything they believe. Those who do, apparently are more afraid of Obama than God. It's all about who you trust. God or man.
