Posted on 03/26/2012 10:57:00 AM PDT by Advocatus Sancti Sepulchri
I will not vote for Mitt Romney under any circumstance in November. The fact that he is the frontrunner is a disgrace and those that endorse him, those delegates that vote for him, and the establishment have my full contempt. He is the John Kerry of the Republican Party. His record is very liberal on virtually every issue. He is a shameless opportuntist..the etch sketch will reset for the general election. If you support the second amendment, marriage, pro-life cause, etc., how can you justify voting for Mitt Romney? He's treating republicans, or at least conservatives, like idiots while his surrogates plan to dump the weak, phony campaign of faux conservatism at the next step. He will lose worse than Ford, Dole, and McCain.
See my tagline.
Well, there’s 2 votes for obammy if Romney gets the nomination......
I just can’t get around that me not voting for him basically becomes a vote for President Obama instead.
I really can’t imagine that 4 years under Romney would be worse than another 4 with President Obama.
Maybe I am a defeatist?
So, tell us, who WOULD you vote for?
I am ashamed that we even have to address this..we literally have a liberal democrat as the frontrunner!
I have been wrong when I’ve stated that RINOmney is a vapid dork.
RINOmney is really a lying, sleazy, liberal smarmy weathervane wimpy without standards vapid dork.
(Yup, I know...just saying liberal brings to mind all those other modifiers.)
OK, hold your nose and vote for Romney....and just WHEN do they STOP sending us RINOs?

The Democrats have taken a page from Limbaugh's book and are cross over voting for Romney in the open primaries, knowing that Obama can beat Romney in the general election. That is why Romney is doing so well in the open primaries.
Closed primaries are what we need.
Vote Newt for an end to the Obama REIGN!
Believe it. Imagine most anything Zero does, Willard will do. He was raised a left-winger and hates Conservatives and Conservatism. He was a horrific Governor and will be a destructive and dangerous President.
What’s dumb is running John Kerry on the republican ticket!
Count me in..we need to fight back.

The Problem as I see it with Romney is that he will be such a mediocre President that even if he does win he will be so middle of the road as to not upset the apple cart that the economy will not bloom and then in 4 years it will assure that the democrats take back power on the whole meme that the economy didnt recover.
Not to mention any GOP president is going to be so damned hated no matter how moderate they are. Mittens will get so damned gun shy that he will be ineffective and the MSM and the Democrat controlled media will smell blood and keep attacking him even as he retreats and this will paralyze him to what needs to be done to restore the economy and defuse all of Obamas horrible regulatory actions.
Newt is going to be hated like hell anyways and HE KNOWS THAT, but he also knows that he will have the people who put him there behind even if the Media doesnt paint it that way every night at 5:00pm.
So therefore, Newt (who thrives on antagonism instead of flinching from it) will take the bold measures to recover the economy despite being thrashed every night on the MSM news channels. In Four years the MSM will be flabbergasted like their were on election night in 1984, because the man on the street will notice the economy improvement.
Mitt is a Flincher, Newt is a Clincher
Definition of a Clincher:
a decisive fact, argument, act, or remark
Definition of a Flincher:
to withdraw or shrink from or as if from pain
We are so SOL if Either Mittens gets in or Barry gets a second term.
Mittens would only slow things down and then in four years the GOP would be blamed so much but with little to show we would still be in an economic malaise the likes of Carters worst dreams. This would GUARANTEE a Democrat Victory over the house the senate and even the presidency in 2016. They would not be pulling any punches as they would run someone that would make Obama look like a middle of the road moderate. Because they know they would have a very good chance of winning. Not to mention the class warfare game that could be played to Bolshevik conclusion during that election if we get Romney and mediocre performance out of him which is very much likely.
Of course Obama winning would be a very much nothing to lose second term that would see him likely either completely destroying the economy so badly that they play the game of Destroy and Support in that they would destroy the economy and then support the people as the great savior thus ensuring either Glorious Revolution or the mass construction project of making millions more so dependent that they will have a permanent grip on power that would only come undone with Blood sweat and tears, but mostly Blood and Tears.
ABO and ABR, because we really need Newt or maybe Santorum if we get desperate, heck I would even take, heaven forbid (I cant believe I am saying this), Ron Paul over Romney for the reasons above.
So I repeat once more: Newt is the Clincher, and Mitt is the Flincher.
Exactly, I was holding my nose while researching George Romney.
Romney is not my first choice, but he can win a national election as could Newt Gingrich. The only real shot we have at losing this thing in November is Rick Santorum. Moreover the nation could easily survive four or eight years of Romney in the whitehouse; by way of contrast, after another four years of Obama starting next January, there would be no pieces left for anybody to try to pick up and put back together.
Again the choice for November will be:
Slow but certain death of a country
Fast and certain death of a country
Turd Sandwich vs. Giant Douche
I am gonna need a clothesspin for my nose at the voting booth.
"I will not vote for Mitt Romney under any circumstance in November."
I am in a more comfortable position. If Romney needs my vote to carry Tennessee, he has already lost.
Look. Romney is probably my last choice, among Republicans. But your associating him with John Kerry is contemptible. Romney has significant private sector experience and, while his military positions aren't the greatest, at least he has never accused service members of atrocities before Congress and elsewhere. And Obama is much worse than Kerry.
He’s not dropping out, no matter what some people here on FR would prefer.
It’s looking very likely he will be the nominee. It will be a choice between a wishy-washy moderate/liberal and an EVIL (yes, I said it), destructive, liberal with a capital L.
I won’t have an issue punching the little circle next to the “R”, no matter who it is. Obama must be defeated.
Total nonsense. Please make your case that Romney can a) win an national election, b) that we can survive Romney as President and c) make a case for Romney as president.
I don't a GD who the alternative to Obama is in November, I will be there voting for him.
We need to dump a ton of email bricks on Ann Coulter non-stop.
She is being a rather despicable enemy of conservatism here. I am assuming that she "sold out".
I think the only firm chance we have to win this thing is Santorum, with an outside chance by Gingrich. Romney is more of the same as compared to Obama, and Newt suffers from only getting back to a +5 favorability rating with those on the Right.
I know—it’s just hard to sit here and realize how really screwed we are. I think most of us are feeling more frustrated than we have ever been before.
The issue isn’t that Romney would be WORSE than Obama, but he would nuke the conservative side, so that there will be NO PRESSURE to REVERSE Obama Radical Desectations of American National Security, Constitutional law, and fiscal integrity.
You and me, both. I’ll vote for “the can”; we can deal with “it” later. If we don’t get that POS out of The White Crib, we’re finished as a Nation. Forever.
Mitt Romney is no moderate, for one, and if you stand for nothing even on core issues..you gain nothing. How does voting for a liberal republican accomplish anything for a conservative? Give me Santorum..give me Newt..give me a real republican, but Willard will not get my vote.
No, we get that. But we can do better than Romney...and we need to to UNDO what the Obama Monster is doing.
I would prefer Newt.
That’s not going to be the choice we have, and I don’t believe in tossing my vote away.
The country is more important to me than the party. Obama must be stopped.
No, I understand qutie clearly how Obama has poisoned the country and how a candidate like Romney will moderately pursue the same agenda, but he’ll crash harder than McCain did in 08. We have to force Romney out for the good of the party and the country.
Of course. Nobody here denies how execrable Zero has been. The question remains do you think replacing him with a leftist “R” (who inspired Zero on nationalizing healthcare !) will somehow make things better ? This is a false set of choices. Horrific Democrat or horrific RINO.
Agreed. I don’t do this lesser of two evils garbage.
So who do you support?
Since when did crony capitalism become the same as private sector experience. I seem to recall Romney saying he knows how to get money and the money is in D.C. He is as liberal on John Kerry..pick an issue. Hell, he has even outdone Kerry on flip-flopping.
Exactly what I have been saying about GA.
You're wishing for a do-over. Good luck with that
Helpless frustration and anger.
Given the choices..prefer Newt but Santorum is the clear challenger and solid on social issues. So I’m with Rick Santorum.
Of course, this may all be academic anyway... If Willard hijacks the nomination, I cannot see a path to which he can win. Many won’t vote for him because of his religion. Many more won’t because the media will remind folks about his religion’s exclusion of Black folks until relatively recently (as the 1970s is), hence he will be called a racist on those grounds. The rest of us will not vote for him because he is #1, a pathological liar; #2, he is a Socialist; #3, he is an uninspiring, out-of-touch phony.
4 years ago, the media and the establishment pushed the false meme that the GOP MUST nominate a “moderate” (liberal) in order to win. Well, the party put up one of those in John McCain (for whom 4 short years earlier gave serious consideration to switching parties to run with John Kerry). By that reckoning, McCain should’ve won in a landslide. Willard is an even more polarizing figure to the party grassroots. How is someone with all that baggage (which the media, again, will spend 24/7 until November reminding the public of) hope to somehow surpass McCain’s standing ? Simple. He can’t.
Somebody asked me what it would take to vote for Willard, and the answer is “nothing.” He’s not fit for any political office, and with his megalomania and pathological desire to obtain the highest office, he is more fit for a psychiatric office. I haven’t spent several years exposing him and his record and his personality traits to simply turn around and vote for him knowing what I know. He’s a Trojan Horse for the Democrats, and his victory could guarantee the demise of the Republican Party.
I would say I am hoping for a miracle.
Look at Ron Paul he had a rally with over 5000 people and that county when the vote came in said zero people voted for him.
Romney rallies have fewer people that all the other yet he continued to do well.
Imho someone with an agenda wanted to make sure our candidates fight and look stupid.
People look the other way and don't care if Ron Paul's votes are not accurate......
BUT they have cheated the others too
ps I prefer Newt too.
Experts: Credit Romney for homosexual marriage

While former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney claims he did everything possible to throttle homosexual marriage in his state his campaign now saying he took every conceivable step within the law to defend traditional marriage several constitutional experts say that just isnt so.
What Romney did [was] he exercised illegal legislative authority, Herb Titus said of the governors actions after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court released its opinion in the Goodridge case in 2003. He was bound by what? There was no order. There wasnt even any order to the Department of Public Health to do anything.
He is NOT a Conservative. Period. therefore if America does not want to vote for a conservative, then America is no longer conservative. I will write in my candidate’s name as a public statement to my beliefs and ideals.
I will not join the crowd.
A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama is a vote for Robamney is a vote for Obamney.... There is no meaningful difference unless one imagines that malignant materialism is the apex of human society. Even then, both of them are malignant materialists who differ only in whom they want to get the goodies taken from others. Both of them are also the worst serial liars to run against one another for POTUS in American history. Both of them also are demonstrating the power of BIG, BIG money to buy nominations and elections.
I agree with you 100% and we have to get on the ball and support Santorum..a brokered convention is our best hope. Romney will hand Obama another four years like Dole did for Clinton and we cannot afford it.
