Angry Vanity- Way to go Florida!

Posted on 01/31/2012 7:16:08 PM PST by goodwithagun

Both parties are driving us toward socialism it’s just that one party is driving a little faster than the other. If obama is reelected the fault lands squarely at the feet of the GOP for not supporting a true conservative. I will not vote for a RINO and if obama is reelected because of a third party then I’m ready to rip off the band-aid and have this revolution. I can fight for my children’s freedoms. If I help elect a RINO then my children will have to fight for their own freedoms. I’d rather do that for them.

What’s needed is a Tea Party veto-proof majority in congress, and who’s president is irrelevant.

We can not get all pizzed off and sit out the election totally if you can’t bring yourself to vote for Willard... leave the President spot blank, but make damn sure. you. vote down ballot races - but only for bonified conservatives.

Long way to go yet. Question is will the MSM fold up their tents and go home, since FLA was the result they wanted.

Disconnected thoughts:

1: No good reason to allow oneself to become overly disconcerted about this. The signs were pretty clear that Romnoid was gonna take it.

2: Game NOT over.

3: Given #2, one cannot allow the incredible heaviness implied by an eventual selection of Romnoid to an 0bama vs Romnoid election (which would admittedly be supremely rotten) to get to ya. You’re gonna be badly depressed for the better part of a year if you do.

Well, as one father to one mother, I've got to tell you that was as best said as anything I've heard in memory.

I'm a little sick of both Mittens and Gingrich, with their disgusting personal attacks. I'm probably a Santorum guy... probably, but we're getting towards the bottom of the barrel at this point (I actually caught myself wondering what it'd be like if T. Paw was still in the race).

Mittens won't be the end of the world, and he'd be one HECK of a step up from The ONE, but damn far short of what we should have done.

Elections have consequences. It's a favored term on this board, and our hatchlings are coming home to roost. Four years ago, we ‘sucked it up’ and went with McCain. And along with McCain came all his state chairpeople who assumed the leadership positions in the party, because after all, the presidential candidate leads the party, right?

Every time we try to figure out why the GOP is running to the left, we need only look back to McCain. Every time we nominate a ‘moderate’, we undercut the conservatives in the party who are trying to move up the ladder and put an end to these RINOS.

The only treatment for this disease is to either nominate a conservative who'll thrash through all the RINOs in the state party organizations, or to cause a devastating loss.

Actually, the rumor is that the MSM will pretty much just cover Romney now. About 46 states to go, but only one "viable" Republican candidate left. No debates until 2/22, no reason to cover Gingrich, Santorum or Paul from here out.

Diane Sawyer was positively giddy tonight when she reported Gingrich's defeat.

The primary season is over.

Look at it this way - Romney won in FL by little more than Newt did in SC, but he had to blow millions in negative ads to get it.

Santorum’s money isn’t going to last long enough to compete in Super Tuesday and the up coming races are proportional.

This thing isn’t over yet.

If Romney beat Newt by a “landslide” 14 points, Newt OBLITERATED Santorum by an embarassing 20 point spread. Rick is delusional.

McRomney and his ilk spent more than 15 million dollars to buy the FL primary! He could not afford to buy the entire United States of America and the American people will not sit by and allow McRomney and his cronies buy this election! Watch for the establishment to pull another smear campaign against other conservatives to end the primary early for McRomney, we must not allow this to happen. The power of the people if they will only stand up and fight the establishment RINO’s and McRomney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris, it will be fine ... Newts a pro, he expected this ... Part of his florida game plans were to force Willard to spend $ 15M he didnt want to, for Willard to expose his genuinely antichrist evil Mormon ruthlessness for al Americans to see, and finally ... get Herman Cain and others off their butts and onto the field.of battle ... Take a look at my other posts tonigjt, and sleep well ...

The primary season is over.

I beg to differ. With minor primaries and lots of downtime in February, the lazy MSM will move on to their favorite topics - globull warming, queer marriage, "wealth inequality".

Gingrich sould concentrate on raising loads of cash and kick Willard's ass in March in states where REAL conservatives live (GA, ID, ND, OK, AK, TN, AL, MS, LA).

They'll love him until the nomination, whispering sweet nothings into his ear. And he will believe them. Then in the general election, they will destroy him, because, after all, he is just a Republican, and they're not going to support him against their guy.

Semi-seriously, is there any reason to vote for Romney other than racism? After all, he is the white Obama, the only difference I can see is skin color. I didn't vote for Obama because of his skin color, so I have no attachment to Romney's either.

Well, I guess we will see.

It seems to me that between now and Feb 22, there will be 6 primaries and the MSM will likely help Romney win all of them. Fund raising for Newt is likely to be anemic. Fund raising for Romney is likely to be strong. On Feb 22 there will be a debate and perhaps Gingrich will look impressive. But after the debate is over, people may say, "Romney has won 8 states, Gingrich has one 1 state, what's the point?"

I hope it turns out differently, but I see no hope for Newt now. The MSM is not going to be subtle about what a "juggernaut" the godlike Mitt Romney has become.

What did you expect when the Gutless Old Pretenders only offer:

1. Romney- Massachusetts Liberal
2. Gingrich- Phony big-government-loving psuedoconservative and disgraced former Speaker of the House with more baggage than the cargo hold on the Costa Concordia.
3. Santorum- a former senator that most people don’t remember much about.
4. Paul- that squeeky guy who can’t keep his eyebrows on and is supported by every kook nutter imaginable.

This election is all you need to see that Conservatives need not apply for elective office within the Republican Party. The party apparatus will destroy any Conservative who tries.

I repeat! I will not be voting for McRomney under any circumstance. This is what has this country on its knees, simply passing the socialist liberal football back and forth from one Republican RINO and then to another Democrat liberal socialist, so what in the hell is the difference if we elect McRomney (RINO) or let Obumbum socialist liberal get reelected?

In the end, there is simply no difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

McRomney care = Obama care tell me what the difference will be, since both are mandated by the government in direct contravention of the Constitutional protections!

I’m furious too, beyond belief!

However, I agree with Keith. Ya gotta fight on and vote down-ticket to try to fix Congress. That’s important no matter who takes the presidency, and it has been looking like we lose the presidency to a liberal either way, R or D.

Congress has the power to say NO to an evil presidency.

Fight hard!!! It’s not over yet for the 2012 election. A lot of battles to fight. We are all needed to stay strong for Conservative principles.

NEVER SURRENDER!!!!!!

Best plan. Get a 2/3 majority of tea party in both chambers and a capitalist family loving america loving freedom of religion loving pro military successful executive as Pres. Vote Romney. If he had a southern accent and came from SC you’d be all over him.

The establishment (that Fox denies exists) is made up of elites from both parties. When we don’t vote for Romney, and I won’t, the GOP elites can blame the racist tea party for obama getting re-elected. And him getting re-elected is what the establishment wants.

And by the way, the “talkers” like Hannity and Rush and EEE-GO-Reilly are among the elites. They like those cocktail parties and fat paychecks. They’ve played us for fools for years. Coulter is telling us she used us. I guess she figures her book writing days are behind her.

I understand your frustration but a “president” can appoint SCOTUS judges as well as other federal judges. If Obama gets to replace 1 or 2 conservative SC judges, our country will not survive.

It’s so good to be able to connect with you guys. Outside, I feel like I’m in another reality. I wrote to Reince P. to tell him why I won’t be contributing to the RNC if they support RINOS, aka Romney..sent the letter to some GOP-E.

Did not expect the backlash..accusations close to treason if I refuse to support and VOTE for THEIR guy, the Mass. Lib.

We had some back and forth. Finally, one of them told me to take him off his email list and that I was now causing him “problems” as others are emailing him about me and asking what the hell is wrong with me? (that I will not go along with the party line of voting for RINOS/Mittens).

Wow. Well, I stood up for myself(and Conservatism) and feel okay about that..but IS there something wrong with me? :-)

What you say is true but the stimulus wasn't a sure thing. Obamacare et al was not a sure thing. But, both of them passed even with a republican majority in the house.

In todays political climate, you cannot rely on the term conservative. Many who call themselves conservative are not. Romney claims to be conservative.

The electorate must study the voting records of all the candidates and support and vote for a “true conservative”.
Unfortunately, that is not being done.

Newt most definitely is not anti-capitalist. His pro-capitalist record goes back many many many years. He has written books, taught classes, given speeches, introduced and passed legislation on behalf of American businesses and worked to create a strong economy, and he has fought for limited governmental interference in this economy. He has been a passionate supply-sider and he is one of capitalism's true heroes. A one time justified criticism of one company, Bains capital, with its predatory practices and corporate raiding does not a communist/anti-capitalist make!

>>...Vote Romney. If he had a southern accent and came from SC you’d be all over him...<<

The problem with Romney is his liberal record -vs- the used-car sales-slut campaign speeches. Which is the real Romney? Was he lying back then — when he signed actual liberal legislation into law — or is he lying now?

I’m voting for whoever the (R) candidate runs against Obama in the general. But, if you want to promote Romney and see any success at all, you might want to answer that key question (was he lying then, or is he lying now and how does Romney re-establish trust?).
