Congratulations to Jim Robinson for His Political Sagacity Overwhelmingly Accurate

Posted on 11/10/2012 3:00:14 PM PST by lbryce

The maelstrom of political controversy regarding Free Republic founder Jim Robinson and his attitude towards the then Republican presidential candidate front runner and odds-on favorite to win the nomination, as anointed by the msm as the weakest candidate in the Repuplican field, was one punctuated by severe criticism of Mr. Robinson for his uncompromising, vituperative take-no-prisoners stance towards the liberal bent, RINO candidate Mr. Romney,as unacceptable under any circumstances as Republican Party nominee in the 2012 presidential election.

While his intensely vociferous stance against Mr. Romney surprised, confused, alienated many, the political rationale for the utter blanket rejection of Mr. Romney as candidate was one that remained fundamentally true to the principles of Conservatism, in that Mr.Romney in his record of being a liberal-bent, RINO, had not earned the right to wear the crown as Repubican party nominee as champion, defender of party principles, when he espouses liberal policies that true Republican conservatives find particularly galling equally unacceptable.

In the end, months after the controversy had died down,the election of 2012 having ended, it comes as no surprise to have ended in the manner in which Mr. Robinson did all that he could and more, the sagacity and prescience in which he had already determined the outcome to the election is one in which should teach us all not to repeat the mistakes of the past and to heed those we have faith and admiration for in their reading of the political map and and its various minefields.

I think also that most don’t believe the House is as important as the Senate and WH. This reflects once again to the fact that voters are truly dumbed down in our society.

So after Mitt was chosen all republicans should have chosen Obama?

Is that you Rachael Maddow?

Maybe this was part of the DEMS strategy. Make it look like obama’s support was way down and then hit us with a whammy on election day. Heck, they may have even told supporters to stay home from the campaign rallies to make us think he was losing support. I don’t put anything past these crooks.

I was thinking the same thing, but more likely the stickers have been encouraged since the election. Giving them out at bars, events, ect...

I just can't understand from where you are able to conjure up such utterly fallacious observations of my comments. The fact is, try to remain focused on my points. It was Jim Robinson who made a distinct request to please not to consider Romney as nominee, As founder of FR I've congratulated him for the accuracy if his decision

How does praising Jim Robinson make any insight intellectual observation by others less important. Please, I would love to hear your answer, as if you could ever conjure up one that makes even the slightest sense.

So true, I remember all those people quiting because during the primary we wouldn’t allow attacks on other canidates and Romney Propaganda.

I still don’t think the GOP have learned their lesson, I think the GOP might have finally jumped their last shark.

Unfortunitly we need these weak kneed republicans to hold the line in the house to ensure that freedom holds in this country.

I say to you fellow freepers, what is more important. Your paper currency and the theft of others labor for your benefit or the freedom to live your life without threat, coercion, or limitations on your liberty??

You’re wrong imo but we wont ever know if any of the other candidates for the gop would have won because of the RINOS constantly picking our candidates with their open primaries.The gop is not the party of conservatives.Screw the gop.

[ Paraphrasing Ann Coulter, “electable” gave us Dole, McCain and Romney. Voting for the “unelectable crazy conservative” gave us Reagan! ]

RIGHT............................

CRAZY = Doing the same thing over and over again expecting something to change..

Okay. I’ve been outed. Jim Robinson and I are brother-in-laws. And my job is to place some incredibly laudatory articles about Jim to make him look as good as possible. You are corcect.

I an not the only one, see other comments on this thread.

The fact is, try to remain focused on my points. It was Jim Robinson who made a distinct request to please not to consider Romney as nominee, As founder of FR I've congratulated him for the accuracy if his decision

I, as many others on this site had no say so what so ever as to who the nominee would be. I detested and still detest Romney. I don't need any one to tell me what is or isn't the right choice as apparently you do.

What you evidently lack is the under standing that there are great minds her that don't need his imprimatur either, your thesis is an affront to those people.

How does praising Jim Robinson make any insight intellectual observation by others less important.

See above.

If you cannot step back and realize in reality what just happened in this election then there is no need for further conversation.

Your insinuation that Jim is the sole arbiter of Conservative opinion is at least an insult to independent thought and suggest lemming type mentality of the left.

Sorry if you don't see it or disagree.

I respect Jim's opinions and mostly agree with his approach to political matters, how ever he is not my "guiding light"

Newt was probably the only real conservative, and he wasn’t a retread and had never run for President before.

Actually, the only retread was Romney. The GOP always gives it to somebody whose turn it is, and Romney had been running for the last eight years so they figured it was his turn.

Close, but no cigar! Romney would not have been MY choice, either. But he LOST, because you can’t beat Santa Claus. They voted for free stuff, including contraceptives, and for the right to murder their unborn babies....oh yeah, and obama phones.

I don't know what your definition of conservative is, but mine doesn't include philanderer, fence-sitter and bloviating gasbag.

Here’s a shocker!

You have been around the block a few times. :)

You were right to resist Romneyknowing he would turn the election over to Obama.

You were right to give in to the GOPers and stop resisting for the only (very slim) hope of removing Obama.

You must not like Sarah very much, to suggest shoving HER into the hell this cabal will have cobbled together by then. The third sentence of Reply 15 sez it well.

Quote: “The fraud will be 10x worse next time, IMO.”

This was the one we had to win. Our next opportunity might come in approximately 75 years.....just like it did for the Romanians, the Poles, the Czechs, et al. You and I will never see it!
