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).

The cancer of Obama”care” now extends to choosing a “Public health expert for the World Bank Presidency.”
_______

The major problem with THE NINE SUPREMES is that they are chosen for political reasons by the POTUS, and then they vote as an un-accountable democracy, for a Nation that is NOT a Democracy, but a REPUBLIC.

As a result, THE NINE SUPREMES commonly vote 5 to 4 on most issues. Constitutionality is seldom a consideration, and their up-coming ruling on Obama”care” will prove my point.

Now is the time to stand and deliver to address our grievances to the dictates of the Left.

Oppose the dictates of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack!

Our ONLY chance to ABOLISH Obama”care” rests with THE NINE SUPREMES, because Romney will be defeated by Obama.

IMHO, if Romney is anointed as the RNC Nominee, THE main issue in the National Election, Obama”care,” will be taken off the campaign table. Hence, Romney will not only lose, but suffer another crushing, and sadly typical, RINO defeat.

To those who want poster ideas, here are a few ideas for demonstration posters:

Obama”care” was robo-signed by Congress, and is therefore illegal.

Obama”care” was 2700 pages long, and is still being written, but not by Congress: witness the forced contraception coverage recently added by HHS Regulators.

Obama”care” has caused “The Catholic Spring.”

Obama”care” reduces competition, and therefore is illegal by the 1890 Sherman Anti-Trust Law.

Obama”care” is designed to be a US Federal Government monopoly, with no competition.

Obama”care” also is illegal according to the US Constitution, because it violates our freedom of choice.

Will THE NINE SUPREMES notice any of these three violations? I seriously doubt it.

Impeached Bill Clinton proved that the US President is above US Federal Law, so anything that the President wants he gets, regardless of the Federal Laws that he has violated.

We were played.

First we were played on the subject of Rick Perry (Guardisil! Guardisil! OMG! Guardisil!), then we were played on the subject of Newt Gingrich (pre-Florida there was an anti-Newt tsunami here on FR).

We are conservatives and we are stupid.

Polls seem to have disappeared from FR but they were still around in 2008. Most polls showed support for Tancredo, Duncan and Thompson. The primarys were dominated by McCain, Huckabee and Romney.

After the Etch-a-sketch comment, I don't think it's still that unlikely.

I don't see myself voting for Romney (ESPECIALLY after the Etch-a-sketch comment), even if that means we lose and get stuck with Zero again. I'll write in Newt or Santourm.

How's that holding your nose when you pull the lever been working for you?

The way I figure it, we at FR root for the best candidate for the job over the lesser candidates. They would be:

  1. Every other eligible person in the US
  2. Romney
  3. Paul
  4. Obama

So if we can't root for 1 over 2, 3 and 4, then we'll root for 2 over 3 and 4.

sad, sad, choice coming for our nation (maybe). Being Conservative maybe is being lost in the voter fraud being covered up? Truly, do not know. How would one find the truth? and that maybe is the cover for those who report the votes? Could America be rejecting Conservatism? Having a difficult time thinking Conservatism is being rejected and Americans believe we should have a mittens / zer0 party.

It won’t be interesting at all. Just look at this thread from last night and see how many FReepers are comfortable with Romney as the nominee ALREADY.

The Primary isn’t even close to over and the Convention is 6 months away and people have totally sold out. Very sad.

Right now Romney still needs close to fifty percent of the remaining delegates to win the nomination outright. If current trends hold he will not fall short.

Unfortunately, “current trends” don't usually hold for very long. Santorum and Newt are low on cash.

Most Romney supporters are of the “anyone by Obama” mindset. One could argue that if Romney is president and the GOP has the senate, that the GOP House and Senate will lead president Romney. Instead of Romney leading them.

Yeah, that was amazing.

I've been a Newt supporter since early last summer, when "FR was PALIN COUNTRY" and man, I needed Kevlar to post here. "What about that pic with Pelosi? What about the healthcare mandate?" etc etc.

Then 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.

So where does this leave us?

...this leaves us with this:

...we must play the cards that we are dealt. I, for one, will support any R candidate that wins.

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.

Our new Congress must consider changing their leaders.

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

That's really the best motivator to vote for Mitt in the general election. Even that won't be enough for a lot of people.

It's time for us do to an end run around these clowns. There are more of us than there are Karl Roves. We just have to agree to do it. And the DO IT!

We can do this. We can get the signatures to put her on the ballot of every state as the candidate of the Palin Party. We just have to do it and stop whining about being stuck with the false dichotomy of loser(R) or loser (D).

So, the only conclusion possible is that an electorate to which the universal franchise has been extended, is infinitely pliable, by application of the ruses of the demogogue.

Romney has been winning largely because his well-funded slime machine has been outspending the opposition several times over. This advantage will evaporate when he faces the Obama/Soros ticket in November.

Here on FR, people got banned not because they are supporting Romney in the general election, but because they were supporting him in the primary. I asked one of them if she was supporting Romney because he is the most conservative electable candidate, or because he is LDS. I never received a reply.

I expect a spirited debate here on FR over whether to support Romney in the general election. My view is no. However, I had said the same thing about McCain, but ended up voting for him after he picked Palin.

I was an early supporter of Rick Perry and defended him here in FR against the lying losers who tried to make an issue of Guardisil and who tried to lie, lie, lie about what Perry would do on the border as PRESIDENT, but then I fell off the wagon, due to Perry’s debate performances, and switched to Newt.

I feel guilty about that. I should have stuck to principles.

Perry was the most principled conservative in the race and we now are getting what we deserve for not seeing that.

Other than Ronald Reagan I have never voted for a Republican. I've just voted against the commie-pinko, American-hating Democrat that was running. That's what I intend to do this time, also.

The question is, How? Hold my nose, vote for Romney, and wash my hands afterwards? Vote for for the Constitution party or sit home? They amount to the same thing. know. I can't vote Libertarian, too many left-libertarians and kooks. I don't know

Well, if you can't vote for Romney, and believe me I understand the attraction of that position, at least go and vote straight down the ticket for the Rs. It won't really do us any good if Obama is re-elected. Think Supreme Court appointments, but one can always hope.

There's a good chance that Mitt will do so poorly on the campaign trail.

By the time Nov. gets here he will be so low in the polls it won't matter if we vote third party or not.

Personally I think many on the right have gone completely overboard on the hate Romney train. I will vote for Newt if he is still in the race come June, but a lot of people here are just plain off their rockers. I haven't seen anyone bother to mention that Romney had a 85% democrat legislature. 85! Is there anyone on the right who could have maintained their "conservative credentials" and gotten a single bill passed? NO. Heck, Santorum supporters are saying he was a big spending conservative because he was playing on Team Bush, imagine Santorum with 85% democrats!

I don't for a second believe Romney is a hardcore conservative. He is a moderate, but he is a right of center moderate. So many people here literally hate him or hilariously say there is no difference between Romney and Obama. Romney is far from my 1st choice (heck, for that matter, so is Newt!) But I can't imagine in the most frantic fever induced FReeper nightmare would a Romney administration look anything like Eric Holder, Steven Chu, Van Jones, Elena Kagan or Sonya Sotomayor.

A lot of people don’t seem to recall, but I remember specifically. There was a FR poll on the front page, and Duncan Hunter had a bit over 90% up until the day he dropped out. I remember at that time Hunter was polling nationally at around 1% which is way below Ron Paul. Just gives you a bit of perspective.

Absolutely right. I could name names, but I won't.

But you know what, as much as I like Newt (and I do) I really believe that Perry was the man for Our Side. I really believe him when he said he would shut down three of those stinking socialist bureaus (yeah, I know, he forgot the name of one during the debate, yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk), and that he really would work non-stop to get Washington "out of our lives".

But we are conservatives. We are purists. We are stupid. We now have Romney.

And you know what, Palin let us down in all this. Let us down BIG TIME. First by dropping out and then by not doing what she did in 2010 so well, getting us to coalesce around conservatives.

Thanks a heap, Sarah. For nothing.

How's that holding your nose when you pull the lever been working for you?

For me, the effect has been the same as going ahead and voting for the other guy; something I never would consider doing.

I held my nose and voted for GHWB Part 2. Should I have voted for BJC? Or should more people have held their nose?

I held my nose and voted for Dole. Should I have voted for BJC Part 2? Or should more people have held their nose?

I voted for GWB cheerfully both times, Some conservatives were holding their noses. Were they wrong?

I voted for Palin and the old guy that happened to be on the same ticket. Had she not been there, I would have held my nose and voted for the old guy anyway. Should I have voted for Zero? Or should more people have held their nose?

History will be the penultimate judge, but I believe the answer is the same as that given a man trying to rescue his brother from drowning in sewage: hold your nose and do your best with what you have.

Yes I know what penultimate means and I used it on purpose.

Even with all the money Mitt has, a very good conservative candidate could have beaten Romney in the primaries. Unfortunately, in this election cycle there were no really good and charismatic conservative candidates. There were/are candidates with excellent conservative ideas, but they are not skilled political candidates that enough GOP primary voters believed could win a general election. A cautious GOP establishment candidate that will always straddle the political center will come out on top every time if conservatives don’t offer up excellent credible alternative.

I’m still hoping Newt hangs in there to the end, but the writing is pretty clearly on the wall now. There is little chance at this point Romney will be derailed from winning the nomination.
