“Hell, Carter has done more damage to the US SINCE he left office than he ever did while in office.”

And we ain’t (sic) seen nothing yet... no matter when zero leaves office, he will use his past position to continue to work against the USofA. Remember, he has been privy to all of the US’s military secrets, and it’s probable he will give that information to the Muslim brotherhood, let alone interfere in international affairs as Jimmah Carter has done...

"We do not care if Mitt or Obama wins"

Speak for yourself.

And now, cue the entry, STAGE LEFT, of the Democrat-Financed AMERICA VOTES PARTY, with a “Conservative” candidate like Alan Simpson, to siphon off the critical 3-4% of R votes in key swing states.

THEY HAVE BEEN PLANNING THIS FOR TWO YEARS, FOLKS.

Don’t be stupid and fall for it.

Newt's a great candidate, I'd vote for him happily given the chance, but he's been on the wrong side a few times in his career -- his endorsement of Scozzafava (who later endorsed the Democrat) comes to mind.

This is another "Scozzafava moment" for Newt.

Voting for socialist Romney is as nuts as voting for socialist Obama. I have a duty to vote, and as a conservative who understands liberalism/statism for the threat to freedom that it is, I have a duty to vote to reject liberalism. If the General is O vs R, I'm voting third party for the express purpose of using my vote to help make whatever socialist wins, Obama or Romney, enter office with the smallest plurality possible and therefore embattled and weakened by the fact that the majority voted against him. When Clinton won with only 43 percent, he got his ass kicked in the mid-terms. So I'll use my vote to try to make the victor as weak and opposed as possible.

"A new candidate! Yes, this shiny new candidate is a Conservative. Virgil Goode comes Constitutionally vetted and can be yours if...your ballot's right."

That's special.

Virgil Goode has absolutely, and I repeat, absolutely no chance whatsoever of being elected President in 2012. A vote for Virgil good is a vote for Barack Obama.

Romney will never "listen". Willard hates Conservatives.

I agree and will raise you one. If, God forbid, Romney got in (I pray that he loses and is vanquished), he would become a velvet-gloved tyrant. If he is anything like his supporters as we got to know them here four years ago, he is deeply contemptuous of conservative Republicans who have the nerve to doubt his judgment, and he is profoundly condescending. He is also RUTHLESS.

It's well known that desperation and panic make people do stupid things they'd never do otherwise. No conservative in his or her right mind would ever vote for a Democrat who held the same positions as Romney -- indeed, they would rightly be on the warpath against such a Democrat. Conservatives who vote for Romney will be doing so because they're in their WRONG minds. I pray that people get over their fear and start thinking soon enough to understand that Romney is VERY BAD NEWS FOR AMERICA.

We have much better odds of surviving Obama, especially if he is elected with such a low plurality that 60% to 66% of the vote was AGAINST him, dealing a brutal blow to any pretense of endorsement or mandate, than we have of surviving an era when GOOD GOD-FEARING SMART CONSERVATIVES would give their precious vote (and thereby surrender the Republican party) to a candidate whose records shows total betrayal of both the moral values and the political principles they hold dear.

BEWARE of Romney. He would be a BIG BIG MISTAKE.

Think it through.

Newt’s conservative record:

* supported anthropogenic global warming
* supported universal health care
* supported the Individual Mandate.
* supported Bush’s prescription drug program
* joined Bush43 in supporting the McCain-Kennedy Comprehensive Immigration Reform
* supports amnesty for millions of illegal aliens
* supported TARP
* called the Ryan budget plan, “Right-wing Social Engineering”
* endorsed liberal “Dede” Scozzafava over the conservative Doug Hoffman in NY23 election
* Newt supported ESC research and the need to have govt funding
* supported cap and trade, then supposedly flipped
* proclaimed “The Era of Reagan is Over.”

Mittens has absolutely, and I repeat, absolutely no chance whatsoever of being elected President in 2012, despite the fact that he is a Obammy clone and just wants to be liked by the MSM. A vote for Mittens is a vote for Barack Obama.

By February, we pretty well knew Romney was going to get the nomination. Interesting that you show up declaring an Obama win. LOL

I think that Idiot Marxist you work for will get beaten like a rented mule, even after people have to cheat for him.

I don't work for Mittens. He and Jughead are Marxists. If you vote for Obamney or Robama then you are a Marxist. A vote for either is a vote for the very thing you "claim" to be against. It's truly sad watching people who "claim" to be Conservative rationalize how it's okay to kill babies, grab guns, and promote the homo lifestyle, just as long as it's an (R) doing it.

My vote is for Virgil Goode who is a Conservative unlike your candidate. I will not throw away my ballot on either evil. Republicans down the ticket, yes, but not your liberal masshole or kenyan -- whichever one you support - and philosophically you must support both if you support either -- at the top.
