Seems the Romneybots and Establishment Republicans now want to blame Conservatives like myself for Mittens going down to defeat last night to a political lightweight with a horrible record of mismanagement!
Not only did Mittens lose, but his much hyped coattail never materialized and not only was he defeat handily, but the Republicans lost seats and influence in the Congress.
What the establishment fails to realize and continues to not understand is that when there is not true Conservative or even Conservative Ideas on the ticket, we tend to stay home. It is time for the Republican Establishment to understand that the Karl Rove Model is not and has not worked since 2008 as the Bob Dole Model did not work in 1996.
In closing I will say again what I said last night, "When you run a Liberal against a entrenched Marxist, this is the results." If the Republicans ever want to win a national race again it must give us Conservative Candidates and dump the Dole-McCain-Romney Models as I could not simply buy into the hype of yesterday and vote against my own interest, so I wrote in myself.
“It’s obvious what happened here; the evangelicals and “no compromise” folks didn’t turn out. Romney got fewer votes than McCain. All of the freepers who threatened not to come out carried through on their threat, and they gave away the Senate right along with it.”
Now they will pay for everyone’s abortions.
They lost because Romney DID have coat tails - negative ones. His presence on the ticket depressed Republican turnout. Romney could not overcome the contempt many Republicans felt for him; there were not enough willing to vote FOR him. Trying to get people to simply vote AGAINST the other guy without offering a reason why you are better does not work.
The socialist won... They the stupid voters like government and they like Obama and his giveaways!!!!
Right, I was not going to reward Karl Rove and the establishment with my vote, when I know full well not one Conservative Idea would have been part of a Romney Agenda, I am old enough to remember George HW Bush and no new taxes lie.
The Neo-cons in the so called GOP and the MSM created this nomination. There’s a reason why the MSM wanted and pushed Romney. Now it’s clear—for some of us, it was clear on the outset.
Thank you for electing obama
Way back in the primaries, I called this. I said that Romney was, despite the claims of "electability", the one candidate guaranteed to lose because he would neutralize the biggest argument against Obama: Obamacare. And his loss would hurt Republicans down-ticket.
I let my optimism get away with me watching the campaign and thought that Romney was heading for a decisive victory based on momentum and an utterly pathetic Obama campaign and final year of his term.
Turns out my original prediction was correct after all.
Romney was bulldozed by the left media. Since we, the American People have kept the lefties alive with their corporate ads and support of their networks, I believe we can and must stop buying any products or services that sell on their networks AND write to corporate headquarters or company addresses to their CEOs and lay out the future loss of their products or services because we’ve had enough of their supporting hate America socialism. That is something we should and can do, hurt them in their wallets!
I am sure my vote for myself did not make much of a difference and you should be thank the establishment for trying the failed John McCain now Romney Model and Jeb will emerge in the next few weeks as the next losing savior of the establishment.
Your post reminds me of why I have one foot out the door of FR
He allowed himself to be bulldozed because Northeastern Republicans like him are chumps and actually think they can win over the same media.
Don’t get mad at me for point out that Karl Rove’s Models have not worked in the last 2 Presidential election cycles.
Now for a little Monday morning quarterbacking. First, politics is how Democrats make money. They have way more motivation than Republicans. Second, they don’t think like us. We would say, “Food stamps! No way! That would mean I was failing!” Democrats look at food stamps and see money freed up for a car payment or a new tv. Look at how many new food stamp recipients there are. You have to give the Democrats some credit. They buy Democrat votes with confiscated Republican money. Brilliant! Look also at the number of new social security disability claims. Lump in Pigford and the dozens of other Democrat giveaways and you see that they can buy votes with taxpayer money. We’ve taken shame out of half our nation. Romney tried to talk about that and the press beat him up. If you’re healthy and drawing food stamps and disability, you ought to be ashamed of yourself, but they’re not. Shame is for bigots now. Our Representatives didn’t shut down the big government jobs machine. Obama and company bought a lot of votes with do-nothing government jobs. The last big piece of the puzzle is the Democrats picking the nominees for both parties. It’s not fair and it’s not right, but it’s legal. That has to be stopped. But, politics is how the Democrats get money, so they are disciplined enough to fall in line with their candidate no matter who it is, and that allows them the freedom to come over and use their votes to screw up the Republican party.
What a pantload. If you have to have your butt kissed to get you to vote against someone who is tantamount to evil incarnate, the today is what we end up with.
what a bunch of selfish crapola. So Romney didn’t fit your idea of a true conservative: he won the brutal primaries. There was tremendous opportunity starting last year to run that true conservative but if I recall none of them won.
I hope it felt everso good to write yourself in. I notice the GOP got 2 million LESS votes than McCain did...Good Job!
To all the Republicans who could not bring themselves to vote for Romney, I ask you: What did that achieve? Was your message really received? Or will the GOP only shift more to the Left now? I expect the latter.
