Why I will no longer give my support for Romney but instead will cast my vote for Obama.

I've been a Gingrich and Santorum supporter since the beginning, never once siding with Romney. However, once it was determined that Romney was the eventual nominee, I of course threw my support to him since he was the only alternative to Obama.

Evidently that wasn't enough for the folks here despite JR's call for a truce which I guess I misunderstood as a rallying call for solidarity behind our new GOP nominee. How dumb was that?

Since it's apparent that the majority of this site's members will not be voting for Romney and their attacks on both me and others who misunderstood JR's message have been relentless, I have decided to forego my support of Romney and instead, give my vote to Obama in accordance with the wishes of the majority.

I chose Obama since the third party hold outs still can't come to an agreement on who they will support. And since a vote for the third party unknown is a vote for Obama, I figure I'll just vote for him since I know the name.

I hope everybody is happy now that I am no longer a GOP supporter but more importantly, I hope everyone involved in the third party support (aka Romney hatred) will allow me into their group and embrace me as a friend..... We are indeed brothers!

Well you have to say that among your choices you may as well vote for the Socialist who is more out of the closet.

Just leave it blank. Vote for your local Republican for Congress and Senate. There is no need to give 0 one more vote!

I think beneath the drama is a valid message, that FR is driving people away instead of winning support for a conservative message.

Not all of course, in fact most here are fabulous but the loud mouths who tear everyone and everything down are indeed making an impression. Just my humble opinion.

Voting to me is not about drama, or about theater, or about evening scores. It is a civic duty and privilege, which enables me to limit the damage done to our Constitutional Republic. The greatest damage to our nation is this presidency, and it is my duty to do what I can to remove the culprit from office.

All the drama won't convince me to vote for a pro-abortion, anti-gun, big-government, pro-socialized medicine liberal.

You do what you have to do. I can't vote for a liberal, either Romney or Obama.

Hold up a sec, Cochise. Romney does not have the requisite number of delegates to crown himself Napoleon of the GOP yet.

I chose Obama since the third party hold outs still can't come to an agreement on who they will support.

Who cares what others think? Your vote is sacred. It belongs to you as a sovereign man, not the group, not the pack, not the popular kids. It's yours. If there is a 3rd or 4th or 5th party choice that really represents what is right and what is good, then vote FOR that person, beit Constitution Party, Libertarian, Zoroastrian Cat Fanciers...whatever. But I urge you, plead with you, to reassess voting FOR the vilest of evils. Not when there's a choice - and choices.

It just takes one man to stand up, and another will join, and another and another...

Just look at how many people, on this most Republican of sites, have rallied around a CP candidate nobody has ever heard of outside of those of us who hail from VA?

Pick somebody. Write Sarah Palin in if you have to. Just don't willingly join the side(s) of evil.

I've been saying that Obama was going to win the election ever since the GOP-E slime machine started with bad-mouthing conservatives, mid-game rule changes, and dirty tricks.

The GOP doesn't win elections when they push a liberal. Ever.

Yeah, did that in 76 and gave Carter two votes. The one I didn’t give Ford and the one I gave Carter. Worst decision of my life. There were many of us absolutely furious with the GOP-E because they froze out Reagan. Ours was a protest/vengeance vote, ALMOST RUINED THE COUNTRY. Sometimes one has to put statesmanship and one’s love of country above one’s personal feelings.

I would not purport to tell you what to do, I am a Palin/Gingrich/Santorum supporter. I can only share the deep regret I still hold for turning Jimmy Carter loose on America. I could not even begin to fathom the buyer’s remorse that will come to a conservative that loves his country and then supports Barak Obama.

I still am not sure whether I can pull the handle for Romney or will just undervote (none of the above)-GOP loses one vote, Dems gain nothing; a vote for Obama is a two vote swing.

Think about it, I am praying for all of us conservatives and fully understand JR’s statesmanlike stance. In the end we must all do what is best for the nation - right now I am hoping for a brokered convention to allow us to vote for Romney with a better conscience.

A brokered convention would probably leave us with Romney but not without some national party plank concessions from Romney to the conservative wing of the party; this would allow us to hold him accountable especially if we can take the senate. Romney’s ego would force him to govern right of center to ensure reelection. With this I could vote for Romney (still holding my nose) knowing we will continue to add conservitives down ticket in the midterms. This would also set the stage for a true conservative presidential candidate for the next twenty years or more.

Every decision has a cost, some costs are too dear to pay (Carter). Good luck with your decision.

Since it's apparent that the majority of this site's members will not be voting for Romney and their attacks on both me and others who misunderstood JR's message have been relentless, I have decided to forgo my support of Romney and instead, give my vote to Obama in accordance with the wishes of the majority.

I am so sorry you have made your decision based on the above "in accordance with (what you feel) are wishes of the majority." It is sad for you, and for our country. Friends or not, please make your choice based on something more than emotion, other people's anger, feeling hurt, and certainly on more than you "know the name."

Perfect candidates seem hard to come by anymore, and our country is being led by people on both sides who are not people we always want in leadership and agree with all the time.

One thing I think about that helps me pick a candidate when I find myself concerned about all of them is: Which person would I want to...take care of my family if I passed, handle my business affairs, handle my check book, protect my home and property? Who seems to be mentally stable and more like a person who could replace me in my household or advise me on important matters. Who could I really feel comfortable with, like one might trust a Godparent, or relative, or life long friend, even if I know they don't do everything the way I would do it.

Those important questions can indicate how you feel about a candidate's basic values, traits, ability to show love and respect, and ability to assure the safety and security of your most important assets - especially your children and grandchildren. I wish you ... a longer thought process before you make the final decision.

From the vanity: I chose Obama since the third party hold outs still can't come to an agreement on who they will support.

Wow! Nice cop-out...

The third-party people have had exactly four weeks -- less than a month -- to react to Santorum dropping out (& less than that re: Gingrich)...

Plus Romney hasn't even been nominated yet...

So here...(r) primary voters had, by comparison, 12+ to almost 17 months to decide who they were voting for...and you're impatient for the third-party people who've had less-than-a-month to react & unite???

Truly pathetic.
