Such as whom?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!
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.
I did not say that. But I do not think Palin is electable nationally.
Then who will. You guys never ever have an answer, excpt Palin, whom we all love, but who ain’t gonna do it.
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.
You continue not to name an alternative. Winning candidates rarely just appear overnight.
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.
If she is the nominee, she will get my vote. I just doubt that she will be.
Uh, cut the personal crap and see my last post.
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.
What was personal about post 162?
Romney and Giuliani were your first and second choices for 2008, and you are pushing Romney as the only choice now.
Your arguments are becoming circular. Pushing Romney? In a vacuum, yes. I’ll push anybody against Obama! I was deeply saddened today to hear Mike Pence won’t run. So, Romney. Name an alternative!
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.
Is Romney still a gun banner?
Okay, then. Why are we still talking about Slick Willard?
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.
“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?
“Uh, Palin supports Juan McCain? WTF?”
WTF is a political calculation on Sarahs part.....
If McCain wins she effectively has a dog collar around his neck.... no more “maverick’ running around like a loose cannon in a Palin Administration.....
If JD wins....what’s not to like? They are kindred souls.......and should get along famously...
Don’t confuse being a good Conservative with being either doctrinaire or naive.
Play Chess not Checkers.......
To support his protoge Meg Whitman for Cal Governor.....
Meg Whitman....Mass. bred and raised, Harvard educated, bi-coastal, just became a “Republican” yesterday.....
.....Oh yeah! right on Mitt....I’ll vote for her! /s
“Then who will.”
Beats me but we ran a POS lib as a Repub last go ‘round.
How’d THAT work out for ya?
All I have done is ask you to name someone else. You seem unable to do so. I will not vote for a ghost. I did say I would vote for Palin if she were the nominee, but you ignored that. Please go away. Thank you.
“Beats me” is the standard conservative candidate, it seems. I will vote for ANY nominee against Obama, but I can’t for “Beats me.”
“Romney is a conservative winner.”
Mitt Romney is a WHAT???!!!
“I will vote for ANY nominee against Obama”
Apples and oranges, we were discussing the nomination fight, not the general election. Stay on topic please. 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.
Why is it so many n00b trolls and ‘98 sign-up sleeper trolls are pushing the Socialist pathological liar Slick Willard ?
Well, we’re in the same long-term fight, then. Good. No more Obama!
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.
Mitt Romney is a solid Conservative........
hhhmmm..... Mittens is on the right side of the political spectrum......
Well, most of the time he is on the right side....
Ah.... some of the time he is.....
Oh, ah, forget get it.....never mind......LOLOLOL
Please leave me alone. Thank you.
Best explanation of the probable logic I’ve seen so far - still a bit hard to swallow.
“.......East Coast Moderate style Republicans.......”
Oops. they probably love him in San Francisco....LOLOLOL
I will continue to respond to people that push Mitt Romney, thank you.
And I will report the abuse, thank you.
Abuse? Where was the abuse that you had to report?
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.
Now, that’s funny...
That is, of course, what they used to say about Governor Reagan.
Flawed premises combined with flawless logic lead to flawed conclusions.
Look. I’d love it if she did. I just think it unlikely.
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
If Pataki runs and is half-way competent, he’ll have a lot of last time’s Romney, Giuliani, and McCain voters, just because he doesn’t have Mitt’s negatives.
FMdj! Another one RIGHT OUTTA THE PARK! Great post!
I’m looking forward to your answer to post 190.
Your boy is DISQUALIFIED. Thanks for playing.
