Time to lay off Mitt bashing? Mitt, Bachmann and Palin are the only ones speaking up?

He would have won the nomination in ‘08 had not Crist endorsed McLame at the last minute in Florida. And besides, he is more credible than any other candidate you have mentioned (i.e. no one). Everyone constant bashes Romney and puts up no one else as a realistic alternative.

Romney can kiss my a** as far as I am concerned. I don’t want any part of him or his politics.

No, Romney had his run and he lost, badly against the weakest competition possible.

Mitt Romney is a deeply disturbed man, most voters sense that and do not want him to be in the President’s chair.

Romney’s secret life as a Democrat, his anti Reagan/anti-Jesse Helms/anti Contract with America/anti conservative political history, his once secret fund raising for Planned Parenthood and Democrat candidates, Romney’s desire to homosexualize the American military, his 11 year history with Guatemalan, illegal aliens, his brutal attack on the dead President Reagan, all these reveal his concealed hostility to our conservative cause.

I don’t quite get the Brown twist on this. I assume Brown was for Romneycare, but opposed to Obamacare. So supposedly it’s a tenable position for Brown, so why can’t it be for Romney. Is that the point? My counter would be even if there are significant differences between the two health insurance reforms, the similarities are probably more than the differences. The media will scream hypocrite at Romney and make sure any differences are glossed over and the similarities are emphasized. Also Brown is playing in the Massachusetts sandbox, and Romney in the national one. Northeasterners are much more sympathetic to big government than other parts of the country.

No, you refuse to acknowledge any candidates or possible candidates other than Romney, which means that for you it is Romney, do or die.

You cannot dismiss candidates and front runners and keep pretending that they don’t exist.

LOL, we know that Romney isn't electable nationally, Romney doesn't win elections.

Palin wins elections and she does great once in office, having been the most popular Governor in America, compared to Romney's disturbingly low, Schwarzenegger like approval.

I look forward to seeing what Palin can do with a 150 million dollar primary campaign, like Romney did 2 years ago.

True enough, and I respect your point. It just seems an unnecessary lesson to inflict on the unfortunate residents of MA, in the light of the availability of the many other exemplary failures in socialized medicine.

This is like April of 2006 was to the 2008 election, so your obsession with Romney being the only choice of the frontrunners or even lesser possibles is not very convincing.

I think what we have going on here is that you were a Romney/Giuliani fellow in 2008 (you were) and that you really, really want Mitt Romney and would not consider any conservatives.

Your noble stand in Romney’s defense notwithstanding, he cannot survive his association with Obamacare. As a rule, every politician who wins carries at least the base. Romney doesn’t have the base, and any chance he had of getting it back is now lost. The tide is against Obamacare and anything resembling it, niceties of federalism notwithstanding, and that tide will overwhelm the ballot box both this November and for several Novembers to come. Romney’s done.

Mitt = FAIL.

I will never vote for this phony-baloney bum. Nor will I support him in any way.

If he is the Republican nominee, I will be actively and openly supporting a 3rd party candidate.

The problem in MA wasn’t Romney, it was too many liberal dems. Romney is a conservative winner. Huck or a half dozen other lesser known conservative splitting our vote will doom us and I for one, don’t want to go thru that again.

I was in MA, working in the party to support him into and through his governorship.

RomneyCare was all about his national ambitions and also an example of his, “I’m a brilliant manager, let me fashion a way for government to run peoples’ lives better than they could run them themselves” technocrat conceit.

Actually it is yours that are circular.

Posts 160 and 162 both address this weird thing you are doing, of pretending that there are not many alternatives to the totally unacceptable Mitt Romney.

I am mystified why you would be pushing such a candidate on a conservative site.

So it’s

“Mitt is ambitious, and he has delusions of granduer...

Therefore, I support him because it shows the fire in his belly.........”

Enlighten me as to the left using the Alinsky treatment on Mitt on any scale approaching that of their treatment of Palin? LOLOLOLOL

For me, and most people other than the East Coast Moderate style Republicans, Mitt is a non starter......now if we let the Dems pick our candidate again, we may see him at the top of the National ticket.....how’s that been working out for us?

Would you buy a used car from Mitt?

If JD wins....what’s not to like? They are kindred souls.......and should get along famously...

In an effort to find some agreement with you, I have already committed to voting for Mitt if he got the nod, but I plan to fight like hell with the hide off to ensure that it never comes to that.

What do you think post 160 is, what do you think that post 162 pointing out the absurdity of your promoting Romney under this pretense is?

Nothing explains why you are pushing the totally unacceptable Romney so hard and to the exclusion of everyone else, we are at the same stage of 2012, as April of 2006 was to 2008, were you already locked onto Mitt Romney or any other candidate then, or was that too early for such a thing? This early in the game, it is easier to name the people that are unacceptable under any circumstances, instead you want to shut out viable candidates like Palin and others and promote the one that should never be promoted, Mitt Romney.

Regardless of our choices as candidates start becoming known in the coming year, Mitt Romney does not belong among them.

Romney's not perfect, but at least he stands up and pushes back...

The problem isn't that Romney's not perfect...no one is.

The problem is he's so d@mn flawed.

Let's compare him to another NE politician, Scott Brown.

If anything Scott Brown is more politically and fiscally conservative than Romney.

Yet, there's no way I would ever support Scott Brown for president.

There's no way I could ever support anyone who could be elected to statewide office in Massachusetts, for president.

I have no interest in electing someone who can teach the beast new tricks.

I want someone who understands that the beast is actually an alligator that will inevitably consume us all.

I don't want a better run version of Obamacare, or Romneycare, or whatever the nom-du-jour might be.

SECOND look? Who are you kidding? I for one have already given him a second look -- I think a lot of us did when Thompson dropped out and it was either him, McCain, or Huckabee. I was inclined to support Romney early on for the 2008 election because some people I respected supported him. Then I started reading his words ... listening to his speeches ... and reviewing his record.

Hell, I've given Romney third and fourth looks -- and every time, he looks the same. He believes in cap-and-trade globaloney. He believes in more and bigger government intrusion on private health care choices; indeed, every single solution he's ever suggested to any problem involves more and bigger government. He believes that the government should step in to prevent people from exercising their God-given right to peacefully discriminate against open homosexuality in our midst; in Romney's view, if you don't discriminate in FAVOR of open homosexuality in schools, workplaces, and even in Boy Scout troups, you should be subject to legal punishment.

"Second" look -- what a laugh.

I’m not sure about it either, but it is the only thing that I can see that rationally fits the situation...... I’m sure that there are other factors, some that may have nothing to do with politics, that I’ve overlooked........

They may in fact genuinely like each other as personalities.....Sarah certainly respects him for his military/POW service...etc.

I wonder how Sarah will feel when Megan publishes her book this summer, and reads the attacks that are reportly in there.... I’ll wonder if Sarah will be able to separate John from Megan in that event.....I would find it difficult to do that as duplicatecy seems a NcCain family trait and Megans book would be a confirmation of that.....

One thing I always remember is that politicians are not always as “dumb” as we think they are...the better ones can actually see and work on multiple planes all at the same time....and are often more aware of the things around them that effect their achieving their goals.....things that are hidden to the general public.

The more I know..... The less I understand.....LOLOLOLOLOL
