It's going to get interesting at FR if Romney is nominated, innit??
Vanity | 23 March 2012 | Notary Sojac

Posted on 03/23/2012 8:05:11 AM PDT by Notary Sojac

I've put some heavy wear and tear on my keyboard making the point here that it's OK to loathe Romney, but to underestimate him is the act of a fool.

Those of us who have been on the "no Romney, no how!!" bandwagon here for the last year have had the luxury of believing that someone else would be able to keep Romney from the nomination.

That now appears increasingly unlikely, as we all are forced to face the fact that Freepers (and those out there who think like Freepers) are not a decisive majority in the Republican electorate. Not even close.

There are millions of long-time Republicans who are voting for Romney because he's a dignified, executive-looking gentleman who speaks in soothing patriotic platitudes. You don't have to like this, but it's true. (And no, they are not being operated by mind control rays from Karl Rove!)

So where does this leave us? Frankly I dunno. I would hope that those who advocate holding noses and voting for Romney don't get banned from FR. At the same time, I think it's very unlikely that I will vote for him. (I voted third party in 2008 in preference to McQueeg).

Supreme Court nominations. We know what to expect from Obama with Romney there is at least a chance.

Given Romney's 'track record' on judicial appointments in MA as governor, that 'chance' you speak of lies somewhere to the south of between "Jack" and "Squat"...

Sarah will endorse the Republican nominee, without question, I think she will do it after he/she secures the nomination.

Romney, if he prevails, may not be the candidate that we all hope he would be, but with the help of a Conservative Congress, most of what we want done will get done, but it will not be pretty.

Yeah...I can see it now...

A local candidate is selling himself door to door...you answer...you invite him in to get to know him...

Thru an informal grilling process you finally extract these tidbits...that...

(a) He's earned a fair amount of $ from the porn industry;
(b) He's forced everybody in your community into govt-run healthcare;
(c) He says he's "pro-life" -- but that healthcare provides $50 abortions & has a Planned Parenthood employee as a permanent healthcare member...plus while running his last "pro-life" campaign he told a member of the local media that it's "OK" for parents to give up their offspring to "research"...
(d) He was a member of an openly racist org thru age 31 -- an org that still keeps racist teachings in its constitution but says policy-wise, they've changed.
(e) And, oh, btw, he'll be a grown-up god some day...but, hey, no worry about "idolatry" if you endorse him.

ALL: B.O. Plenty's conclusion: "Well, you're a bit disappointing. You're not much of a candidate -- one I'd hope we'd have, let alone a candidate with an (R) attached, but I'll endorse you...even if you are to the left of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson!"

[To flesh out (a) & (c) above...(c) -- Romney told Katie Couric in Dec '07 'twas "OK" for parents to give their offspring to "research"...re: (a) Romney's been a board member for Marriott, which since at least 1989 has been selling porn inside its hotel rooms...something even they realize is problematic because they've announced they'll be stopping that practice...tell us the difference between a porn theater in bed with the porn industry & Marriott again? Aren't they all "porn theaters" & porn industry distributors?]

Hey, with "fickle" "discerning" "conservative" voters like you, the GOP's in "great shape" long-term! /sarc

Btw...here's 16 things Salvation just listed as to Romney not being the candidate "we'd hope to have": Are Mitt Romney’s Mormon beliefs something we should worry about?

But people seriously would consider voting for him?

FR pivoted from "PALIN COUNTRY" to "NEWT COUNTRY" almost on a dime, and all the 'bots here pivoted in perfect harmony. Now it's like Newt has been their idol since the Bronze Age. Pathetic.

Posts #99 & #105 are for you, too, Nifster.

Hey, if we wanted to vote for somebody to the left of John F. Kennedy & Lyndon Johnson, we'd join the Democrats.

And why sell your conscience for somebody who's going to lose anyway?

If you could raise enough $ to help your fave NFL team get a better kicker -- and that results in one field goal in the SuperBowl that would have been missed by a slightly less-abled kicker -- what does that matter if you've changed the score from a 46-29 loss to a 46-32 loss?

Either way, you've wasted your vote...and $

I'm ABO, and that's been my position all along. I have not bashed any of the Republican candidates so far (with the exception of Ron-Paul Ahmadinejad, whose foreign policy is downright dangerous). Unless the Republican nominee were to start campaigning as pro-Obamacare, pro-abortion, or pro-homosexual marriage, I will vote for the Republican candidate against Obama.

As far as Omni-Romney, the Man of a Thousand Faces, I do not trust him, I have not promoted him, but, given the proviso mentioned above, and with a Congress more conservative than the Massachusetts legislature, I think there's a possibility, at least, that he will be significantly better than Chairman Obamao. I can't imagine anyone as bad as Obamarx.

I donated to Cain. I voted against Romney in the primary. I have had my say. All that remains is to vote against Obama.

Whether or not that vote is for a Third Party (don’t give me crap about “a third party vote is a vote for Obama.” As far as I can tell, a vote for Romney is about the same as a vote for Obama...) depends entirely how Romney sounds like after his “etch ‘n sketch” reset.

That's not a California problem, it's a national one.

We all knew... we ALL knew... back in September that this was the ONE year we had to coalesce around a single conservative, and do it early.

We all knew that.

We didn't do it. And now we've got 95% chance of Willard and 5% chance of Rick.

As this is a well posted thread more than likely this will get lost in the noise but here it goes.

I view the Romney situation exactly like one which happened in Western New York.

In a NY State 145th district Assemblyman election Michael Kearns, running on the Republican ticket won defeating a Sheeeeeeeldon Silver endorsed dumbocrap.

Now for the rest of the story. Kearns is a dyed in the wool dumbocrap and even admitted it Thursday while meeting with Sheeeeeeeldon Silver. He stated he has always been a democrat and will continue to support the democrat agenda in the legislature.

Now it gets really creepy. Communist under the bed creepy. Progressive democrats (read: Marxists) in the legislature want Kearns to sign a loyalty oath to the dumbocrap party (not to his constituents of course).

So, will or can the people who elected him throw him out of office for being a complete fraud or is that just another definition of a politician?

People, this is straight out of the former Soviet Union.

It is obvious we do not even have a TWO party system just a communist government party with a left and right wing but both sides in bed with each other so as to retain power.

To all Freepers who will not vote Romney, even though he will be running against America’s first Marxist President, who is intent on destroying this country, I say:

1. I respect your right to vote any way you choose.

2. I ask you to think of the two following individuals: Elenga Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. I ask you to consider the consequences of one, or possibly two, more appointments to the USSC that Obama may have the opportunity to make, should he be re-elected.

Not voting for Mitt IS voting for Obama. I respect standing on your principles and maybe I am wrong for not doing the same however I will be voting for the Republican candidate, just too much at stake with another four years of Obama and the number of Supreme Court appointments he would likely have. Yes I have doubts about Romney as well but he is more my guy than Obama.

If mittens gets the nod, I am gonna self ban from FR, me, my wild rants and my quarterly donations, because I won't be singing and dancing, but I'll be voting for mittens.

FReepers are mostly pretty sharp politically, but many are prideful to a fault.

There is a load of childishness, masquerading as false conservative values, and since you voted for obama in the last election, you will feel justified doing it again.

Not me, I'll be going on down the road.

Not voting for Mitt IS voting for Obama.

Voting for a liberal socialist hack under the party of (R) only perpetuates the problem and eventually the GOP will be no more.

The GOP elites need a good b!tchslap and a shot across the bow otherwise their own petty personal gain will overpower their will to do what is right for conservatism.

This has been obvious since the slow tide to the left has left conservatives out to dry.

Why vote Romney when his guns are pointed the same direction as 0bama's, at conservative values and the Constitution?

If I stand alone, so be it however I have voted my last vote for an individual who I know will do damage to our republic.

If Romney had been a democrat all along, he very well could have been POTUS by now however up to this point a majority have seen through his lies as a faux conservative and that has kept his liberal *** out of the Oval Office.

..to me this is beyond nuts.

..giving Zer0 another term is a guarantee of the destruction of the US as we know it...there is no way to know what Romney will do as POTUS.

.......you cannot know for sure that Romney will absolutely repudiate EVERYTHING that he has said in this campaign....all you can do is speculate..

...again, given the circumstances, what in the hell do you want me to do?? I am not going to pout, pick up my toys and go home just because I didn't get my way.

You can withdraw, and let Zer0 take us down, that is your choice....as for me, I am going with the Republican nominee, whoever he is...I am at least not going to be a party to the destruction of my country as I have always known it...by giving up and letting Zer0 have his way for another 4 years.

I think we are a decisive majority in the party, but when only half the pie is getting sliced into several pieces, the other half wins. I’ve stayed out of it for the past month or more, because the outcome was starting to look pretty obvious, and I would be happy with Newt or Rick. I guess it’s just politics these days. Everyone wants to be president, regardless of how inexperienced they are, or what kind of garbage they are dragging along. Why not? Look at Obozo.

It’s going to be interesting alright. IMHO, we need to fight like banshees to continue the 2010 tea party congressional sweeps no matter who gets the presidential nomination. And, whether Romney, Santorum, Gingrich or Obama wins the election, we’re going to need strong tea party majorities in both houses of congress to hold their feet to the fire and to roll back government. Personally, I cannot and will not vote for abortionist big government Romney if he’s the one, but damn sure will turn out on election day to vote for any conservative Republicans down ticket.

I won’t be voting for Mitt. There is no indication whatsoever that he knows any more about the Constitution or respects it any more than Zero. Zero will likely take us even faster into the hell of the fascist totalitarian state, but there is not much difference.

The slight difference is this. With a socialist as zealous as Obama will be in his second term, there is some possibility the frogs will recognize the water is getting hot and jump out. Mitt will simply continue to raise the fascist heat slowly. Wow! I think you guys have helped me talk myself into voting for Obama!

If the choice is between a known dictatorial communist prancing about in the guise of a democratic healer and a confused RINO I still know what I will do. The truth is we MUST elect as many conservatives to the House and Senate as possible.... This is MANDATORY and truly our only real hope. Mittens is no delight but I suspect he would veto less stuff than O. What we really need is a 60 person conservative senate and a 2/3 majorty in the house. Then it will not matter who the president is because it will be over ridden. I think this is less likely to happen though.

I know people are upset with this group of ‘nominee seekers’. Can’t say as I blame them. But I also know that standing in front of the tank trying to stop it is better than just saying ‘oh well. after all Hitler and Chamberlain are really identical”. The primaries are still on. I am working as hard as I can for the candidate of my choise (that is left to me at this point). But like Mark Levin, I will vote for a tin can rather than see O get re-elected

That’s nice but it has NOTHING to do with the electoral college. All your write in votes (even if overwhelmingly for one person) would not elect one person to go and cast a vote at the college-—THAT is the difference. Our best chance is to flood the house and the senate with conservatives willing to stay true to first principles. Then we can effect some chance for the good

Perry was not the guy and was never going to be the guy. I am glad you supported him and still feel strongly but be realistic Perry is a RINO as much as Bush

Lol it’s just like every other presidential election.

Then come threats to sit it out, accusations, more name calling and zots up until the election.

Then we complain about whatever who wins does and repeat it all again in four.

I’m going to wait and see who Romney picks as his running mate, should he get the nomination. I’ll take that as a reasonable indication of how he’d pick the 2 or 3 SCOTUS appointments whoever wins in 2012 will probably get.

I think the very fact that conservatives have such a dislike for Romney has gotten the GOP establishment's attention. If his running mate IS NOT a conservative then they will be handing the election to Obama. Many conservatives will still throw a Romney tantrum no matter what. But I'm hoping most will come to their senses and vote Republican if the VP running mate is a conservative.

So you do not understand that there is NO ideological difference between Romney & Obama? None!!!

Utter, unabashed nonsense.

Romney is too big-government and too liberal for my taste, but your statement is ridiculous. Romney doesn't want to end capitalism and he doesn't hate his country. I dare you to tell me he does.

Refusing to vote for him if he's the nominee is childish and will do absolutely no good. It will not send a signal to the RNC, but it will certainly increase the odds of Obama's being re-elected.

I totally agree - all I can think is they don’t believe that an unrestrained second term of BHO may well mean an end to any more free elections and WILL mean the death of our republic - the final nail in its coffin and something that’s been planned for a long time by many who have chosen B. Hussein as the Executioner.

Does anyone think really think Mittens, RuPaul, Santo or Newt plan to start a civil war (race, class, religious or any combination thereof), declare martial law and kill any dissenting citizens? That’s exactly what BHO’s been working on and it should be obvious to informed observers willing to think the unthinkable. Because that’s the reality awaiting us if we give BHO this election “on principle”.

Anyone on our side of the fence can be kept in line by more conservatives in both houses (and control of the Senate) - NOT true of the One.

You are going to be quite amazed at how many of us will absolutely refuse to vote for Romney. His despicable behavior to buy the nomination with zillions of dollars of slanderous attacks on the actually conservative and Republican candidates, his refusal to flay Ron Paul and vice versa, his entire "etch-a-sketch" political life, his gun-grabbing, baby-killing; his gay everything encouraging track record means that he is permanently foreclosed from seizing the GOP and he will certainly lose to Obozo.

If anyone does not want Obozo to serve four more years in office, then time is running out to stop Robamney which is the only way to beat Obozo. It is up to the GOP to decide whether or not Obozo gets four more years to destroy the USA or whether the GOP wants to suicide to nominate Mittwit. I have voted Republican in each and every POYUS election starting in 1968 and I assure you that I will not vote for any more RINOs and I won't be alone.

The worst nightmare is the destruction of the GOP as an effective opposition party, much less as a vehicle for conservatism. Those of you who do not take this seriously will be responsible unless you stop Robamney who is no better than Obozo on abortion, guns, marriage and the other issues that really matter. Those determined that defeating Romney is the first priority will not be deterred by his choice of running mate or boogie man fairy tales stories suggesting that he would appoint to SCOTUS anything better than Souter or John Paul Stevens or Herod Blackmun.

If this country simply MUST be destroyed, then let the Demonrats do the destroying.

Who do you think you're fooling? If you "give this election to Obama," it will be because you have no principles.

Happened a LONG time ago.

Most, if not all, of us are NOT “comfortable” with Willard. But how can we get our own guy nominated? Oh, there’s the problem - my choice is Newt, and if I recall, yours is Rick. And it seems we’re pretty evenly divided that way here on FR. And that’s not counting RuPaul people (who would probably vote for Mittens).

Romney benefits from our division. I’d rather see a convention decision.

But will I vote for our ultimate nominee, whoEVER that is, over the Evil One?

Oh, hell yes.

I won’t be voting for Romney! I’ll write in Daffy Duck before I’ll vote for Obama/Romney.

I may well wind up voting for you. I certainly won’t vote for Romney. You may well be right about the GOP. I lost my congressman (Don Manzullo) this week to an utterly dishonest moneyed blitzkrieg by House leadership offended by his refusal to support any more debt limit increases. The lies of his opponent Adam Kinzinger rivaled in preposterousness even those of Mitt Romney and his superpac. As you may have noticed, I am extremely angry with the GOP slime in DC. There is no US Senate race in Illinois, nor are any statewide officeholders to choose. Kinzinger will not get my vote any sooner than Romney which is to say never. My state legislators are brainless unprincipled hacks. It begins to look like you might be my only vote this year. Please don’t go around screaming. I have no doubt as to your principled approach to all issues of consequence.
