He’s boring. Is that on the list?
We know he would be a lousy President but what kind of Republican voters do we have that are too blind to see it?
Mitt Romney will never be President.
But his attempt to be elected may divide the Citizens enough to re-elect Obozo and destroy the nation.
The reason why he’ll be an improvement: He’s not Obama.
Pretty sure that point alone trumps all 16 attacks against him. A weak republican is better for this country than the most devout democrat.
He'll be the Republican candidate. If there is someone better why aren't the people electing him?? The person with the most votes wins. If Romney wins and he isn't your guy, then it must be your fault.
Bad Gov. Romney, in another of his hit and runs
managed to even raise taxes on New Hampshire residents
while Gov. of Massachusetts.
Believe it or not.
Support the Republican nominee whoever he may be.
It will not be my fault, because I will not vote for Romney.
But, I do not see how Romney can win the primary. He will not carry the South. Will not happen.
If he does win the nomination. There will be a total revolt. Very Very bad outcome.
Not anymore, after the turd sandwich we got in 2008, that was the last straw.
From your profile:
... A mix of libertarian and conservative views form a mess of political views ..
FYI: this IS a conservative site .. staunchly, ardently conservative.
I agree. Support the republican or go down with the scorched ashes that will be left of America.
I was on FR all through the Bush years with a different name. I was always so proud of the posters for being polite and not calling names.
Now, I am sorry to say that some FR Romney bashers sound just like the rude crude DU posters.
I beg to differ - when backed into a corner he ISN’T slick. He wasn’t in ‘08 and he isn’t now. He’s been given a pass so far by media and in debates but such won’t be the case against BHO. He’ll get that deer in the headlights look in his eyes and get rattled or he’ll get petulant, both of which we’ve seem before. Either way, he’ll puss out and it would be disastrous. No, “slick” I could respect and support against The Wan. Our guy has to have the killer instinct, the verbal skill to deliver blows and the cool steel to take everything BHO throws and sling it right back at him.
It ain’t Mittens!
I would think that the 75% voting against him would be a sort of clue for you, and that is with the full support of the Rockefeller wing of the GOP, the media, his huge, vast organization, his vast sums of money, and his non stop running since 2006.
If he wins, it will be your fault, and the people who share your views.
So let’s go down a list of issues, and I bet my conservative views trump yours...so by your standards, they are automatically correct and beyond reproach. My “libertarian” views are more free market orientated, along the lines of a muilton friedman.
Nope. It's called being highly principled. Nothing on this Earth will ever get me to cast a vote for Mitt. He will do nothing to turn our Republic towards Liberty. He will just be a placeholder until the next Marxist takes power.
Never again will I vote for Statists.
AGAIN: this IS a conservative NOT a libertarian site.
Romney is NOT a conservative.
#11 Mitt Romney has been a huge supporter of gun control laws.
#12 Mitt Romney once claimed that he was more "pro-choice" than Ted Kennedy, but now he claims that he is pro-life.
#13 During this campaign season, Mitt Romney has stated that he only supports partnership agreements for gay couples and not gay marriage,
#14 As late as 2007, Mitt Romney was a member of the Republican Main Street Partnership. The following is what romneyexposed.com says about this organization....
#15 According to the Huffington Post, Mitt Romney has raised more money from lobbyists than all of the other Republican candidates combined.
#16 Mitt Romney is a big time Wall Street insider. It is estimated that Romney has a personal fortune of approximately a quarter of a billion dollars, and Wall Street money is being absolutely showered on his campaign.
Who is Mitt Romney
Republicans recently have watched multiple Romneys at war with each other over abortion, ethanol, global warming, and more. Alas, this is nothing new. Various Romneys have battled themselves on issues as old as the Vietnam War.
I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam, Hawkish Romney said in the June 24, 2007, Boston Globe while running as a conservative for 2008s GOP nomination.
But Romney sang a softer song while campaigning for Senate in liberal Massachusetts. I was not planning on signing up for the military, dovish Romney said in the May 2, 1994, Boston Herald. It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam.
Just last week, Romney spooked pro-lifers by refusing to sign the Susan B. Anthony Lists pledge to nominate anti-abortion judges and other federal officials. Romney properly noted that this promise might block, say, a pro-choice spy master from leading the electronic sleuths at the National Security Agency, which does not address abortion. Still, this dustup underscored Romneys bipolarity on this key issue.
I believe that abortion is the wrong choice except in cases of incest, rape, and to save the life of the mother, pro-life Romney wrote in the July 26, 2005, Boston Globe.
But less than three years earlier, in October 2002, pro-choice Romney disagreed: Let me make this very clear. I will preserve and protect a womans right to choose.
Government under President Obama has grown to consume almost 40 percent of our economy, pro-enterprise Romney said June 2. We are only inches away from ceasing to be a free-market economy.
I support the subsidy of ethanol, rent-seeking Romney said on May 27 in Iowa, however. I believe ethanol is an important part of our energy solution for this country.
Four days earlier, former governor Tim Pawlenty (R, Minn.) bravely opposed ethanol subsidies in Iowa. Nonetheless, Romney bear-hugged this boondoggle weeks before the U.S. Senate voted 7327 on June 16 to terminate the ethanol tax credit.
I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that, CO2-fighting Romney said on June 3. I think its important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants, of greenhouse gases, that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and global warming that youre seeing.
Romney earned a wave of the scepter from none other than the pope of the global-warming church, former vice president Albert Gore Jr.
Good for Mitt Romney, Gore wrote on June 15. While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party.
Governor Romney, CNNs John King asked at a June 13 GOP debate in New Hampshire, constitutional amendment or state decision [to ban gay marriage]?
Constitutional, replied traditional-values Romney.
Conversely, modern-values Romney, said in an Aug. 25, 1994 interview with Bostons gay newspaper Bay Windows: The authorization of marriage on a same-sex basis falls under state jurisdiction.
Gun-toting Romney called himself a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association in April 2007. (Actually that lifetime began in August 2006.)
Gun-controlling Romney declared in 1994: I dont line up with the NRA.
Sportsman Romney said in 2007: Ive been a hunter pretty much all my life. A spokesman clarified that Romney actually had hunted precisely twice: At age 15 and in 2006.
Ronald Reagan is . . . my hero, the Gipper-loving Romney said in 2005, as the Boston Globes Scot Lehigh noted on Jan. 19, 2007. I believe that our partys ascendancy began with Ronald Reagans brand of visionary and courageous leadership.
I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush, Reagan-bashing Romney said in 1994, while running against the late senator Edward Moore Kennedy (D., Mass.). Im not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.
You do know Milton Friedman was Reagan’s chief economist do you not? So apparently, not only was Reagan not welcome on FR, he was not as conservative as you, nor a conservative in general? You’re being silly. I would like to hear how you came to think I classify Romney as a conservative, when every reference I have of him explicitly calls him a weak republican..maybe it is you who should educate yourself.
Back who you want, but tearing down the likely nominee is just dumb. Turn potential voters off from candidates and help reelect obama..apparently that is the true meaning of conservatism!
Like I said, I’m willing to bet that for the most part, my conservative leanings lean a bit more fringe right than your own.
You’d be betting wrong. I don’t have ‘conservative leanings.’ I AM a conservative.
What are you smoking? What do Milton Friedman and
Ronald Reagan have to do with Romney?
Matters not to me if you care or not, but here’s an FYI from the owner of this site:
Fringe is accurate, you were backing Romney, at least until recently.
Like they say, a libertarian is a leftist with more conservative economics.
You brought up my statement on libertarianism, I simply addressed it. A conservative going out of their way to turn off potential voters by smearing a likely nominee and reelect Obama....we have a differing opinion on Conservatism. I at this moment do not even support Romney, I personally like Santorum, but if Romney gets the nod, I will not think twice about voting for him and getting Obama out of office. My beef is that you can advance your candidate without making it that much harder to elect whoever gets the nomination.
Thank you for posting that. It is nice to be reminded of MittBot’s position on the key issues.
Wrong. In none of my past posts have I ever backed Romney. I just find it amusing that he may get the nomination and many will either have to eat their words and vote for him, or not vote for him, essentially helping Obama.
Nothing worse than an enemy within.
NO ROMNEY, NO WAY.
Saving. Thanks STAR!
“Support the Republican nominee whoever he may be.”
BEARS REPEATING. Unlike repeating 2008.
You cite as evidence that I back him, a quote of mine in which I call him a weak Republican? LOLWUT?!?! The point was, that any of the candidates would be better than obama. So if he gets the nomination you’ll 1)vote for romney, 2)write in your candidate 3)not vote?
Two of those help Obama and go against advancing Republicanism. A weak republican is better than a democrat. if you were trying to make me feel bad in thinking that I prefer a republican no matter what, over a democrat well, then you fail.
“Wrong. In none of my past posts have I ever backed Romney. “
To: Free ThinkerNY
Social security, medicare/medicaid, welfare and public schooling are all programs that should not financed through the government. A conservative having a conservative view now is a sign of failure? Romney, I was backing you, but this outlandish decree is nonsense.

Welcome .. ;)
I'm not trying to make you do, think or feel anything, so please get off your high horse.
Romney is not a Republican, weak or otherwise. He calls himself a Republican but he's more demonic-rat than anything else.
STARWISE graciously linked you to Jim's post, wherein you could readily read that Romney would be an enemy within.
I and a whole lot of others here, are TEA Party conservatives. Our values and priciples won't be compromised should the GOP-E manage to get Romney nominated.
The Republican Party will have left us and gone the way of the Whigs.
Guilty I guess. One post from months ago where I opaquely mention supporting him followed by decrying his lack of conservative credentials.
"Romney, I was backing you"
The reason why hell be an improvement: Hes not Obama.Everyone on this planet is not Obama except Obama. I'm not going to vote for the author of RomneyCare just because he isn't Obama.
I also started and finished by saying he wasn’t a conservative. I’m willing to bet I can scroll your posts and find something you said in farce and use it against you...very hard to do. All the anti Romney of the post followed by my actually supporting Santorum that day, or around the same time obviously means nothing. the passing comment is my true thoughts, not my consistent views..you I can tell are very logical.
It wasn’t farce, the largest subject of your posting seems to be attacking Palin, yet Romney gets your persistent defense and support.
As you said, you were backing him. On this thread you are fighting to persuade us to vote for him.
I won’t be voting for Mitt Romney, not now, and not if he wins the primary.
