Romney-Ryan?
The Evening Standard ^ | March 20, 2012 | FRED BARNES

Posted on 03/20/2012 10:12:12 PM PDT by Steelfish

Romney-Ryan? MAR 21, 2012 • BY FRED BARNES Mitt Romney is close to finishing off his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, talk of a brokered GOP convention in August, and the prospect of a new candidate suddenly entering the contest.

This would be a political hat trick once it happens, and the moment is likely to come quite soon, now that Romney has won an overwhelming victory in the Illinois primary. It would take a collapse of historic proportions for Romney to be denied the nomination.

Could that happen? Sure. But the chances are mighty slim. Rick Santorum would have to whip Romney in the big state primaries—California, New Jersey, New York—and also in states like Maryland, Delaware, Oregon, Connecticut, Wisconsin, and Utah.

As things now stand in the campaign, Santorum is more likely to lose all but one or two of these states than he is to capture a majority of them. Pressure for Santorum to drop out, quietly at first, is probably not far off.

Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul—forget them. Gingrich responded to Romney’s win in Illinois by whining about what he said was Romney’s 7-to-1 advantage in spending, as if it were improper. Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said this was like accusing a basketball team of cheating because its players are too tall.

I see the Romney boys at the Weakly Substandard are trying to sell the inevitability argument again. Maybe it was just me, but this “overwhelming” win tonight was by 11 points in a contest Milt spent a TON of money in. He also couldn’t break 50% again. All Romney had to sell anyone was that the other guy sucks.

If I was Fred “The Beadle” Barnse, I would be less concerned with Milts VP choices and more with why this guy is still such a total dud.

Romney is going to need some very conservative cabinet picks to really convince anybody that he’s even remotely conservative.

Also not happening. Ryan does not appeal to the moderates, and that’s what the GOP-E will be gunning for during this election. They will go for Susana Martinez or someone else like her (It will be a moderate woman who is a minority).

Personally, should Romney end up the nominee, I hope he chooses some dullard. An empty suit with a somewhat right leaning record. He promised it’ll be someone pro-life. So maybe it could be Rob Portman. That way, if the ticket goes down in flames, we won’t have lost a rising national star.

Same here. And I say that as I grit my teeth. Romney, if elected, will slow down the train wreck a little. If obama is relected, we hit the wall very soon.

We’re in dire straits. America is like a fat, complacent and spoiled kid. The cookie jar is empty and the kid is going on a diet.

If anything could make me even less excited to vote for Romney in the general, this would do it!

Paul Ryan has NO resume to recommend him, he has spent his entire life in politics; and his campaign contributions would be cannon fodder. He is a DISASTER on health care; by the time the Dems/Media get done using his own words against him, Obamacare will have 80% support.

Old political adage...candidates seldom quit the race, they just run out of money and then their opponents can whip them mercilessly in ads.

According to a report filed Tuesday night with the Federal Election Commission, at the end of February:

Rick Santorum had $2.6 million in the bank and $900,000 debt.
Newt Gingrich $1.54 million in the bank and $1.55 million debt.
Mitt Romney had $7.3 million in the bank and no debt.
Ron Paul had about $1.4 million in the bank, no debt.

I haven’t made up my mind yet, because we’re not there yet. Once November comes around though, I’ll decide for whom I’ll vote (My primary vote doesn’t matter, we’re the last state to vote, and that vote’s decided).

But, I can say this. If Obama were voted in a second term, there will be no limit to the things he’d do. TSA/NFL/HS Prom groping, body scanners, NDAA, SB 510 (food bill, that makes a slew of regulations) etc., etc., will PALE in comparison with what’s to come. PALE. It’s the Czars, handlers, and everything that comes along with him that are the huge problems people forget about.

No.

The gutless chickens on this site who keep yapping on about how they will vote Romney even though they don’t like him are tools and don’t even realize it.

This site IS monitored by a lot of heavy weight people, including Republican Party movers and shakers. You can bet your lunch on it.

The people right here on FR who keep posting that they will vote for Romney out of fear of Obama (because that is what it really is - fear) are just encouraging the Republican Party conservative hating elites to keep pushing their worthless candidates and worthless leftward leaning agenda on us.

Ever hear of Psyops? (I assure you , though, with me it isn’t psyops... I mean it, I will NOT vote for Romney under any circumstance)

Shame on anyone on this site who’s hatred for Romney is so great that they would risk having Obama for a second term.

Many of our first choices are no longer in this race, but our country is at a critical turning point and not voting for Romney (if he is the nominee) is one less vote that Obama needs to get to win reelection. In my opinion, it is not worth it.

I would prefer to see Romney-Rubio. Ryan is great where he is at.

he’s even remotely conservative.

But he is not. However, how do we sell that to a largely uninformed part of the Republican electorate? Who will sell another view to that electorate?

Those who do not wish to look and want it just presented to them (willfully uninformed) sadly will bite on the "it's inevitable" line that the Republican party is foisting on them.

Yet it is only their lack of concern about the future of this country and all it is as started by the founders. We just need to hope that we get the senate or we can say good bye to SCOTUS,,,, maybe forever. If that happens we are gone as the republic of our founders.
See my tag line. Has been virtually the same for years when we lost the Senate several elections ago. It was more true after the last presidential election.

Why won't he ask Santorum? Inquiring minds... ( I won't vote for Mitt; if Mitt gives away $$$-free cars and college loans— like I said months ago; whatever sell out signs up with Romneycare Mittens; to me is dead. Not a conservative in my eyes could do that. This party loyalty — is done and over with. Let them find a vote getter for Mitt. As soon as it begins, we all should say no. If the repubs take the house and senate, Obummer can't do much like Clinton's last 4 years. There is already polls out saying the repubs may not overtake Obama if the gas prices come down/the jobs go up and don't you think Obama won't turn things around) So, whatever little window dressing GOP-e gets for Mitt, is a sell-out-a spade is a spade.

You tell your Romney love to the following — to the dead, aborted babies and the children in Massachusetts schools forced to deal with fisting and gay sex in class every day. To the people who lost the right to purchase weapons and those who pay the exorbitant fees, also known as a tax, for the “right” to pay Mitt’s mandated health insurance. To the religious individuals and organizations who no longer are able to help those in need because Mitt’s Massachusetts wants them to violate their tenets and pander to the same sex agenda. To all those who against their consciences had to provide forms with one from column A and one from column B to anyone who wanted to marry or else be fired by Mitt.

Just like libs, people come here to tell us we can’t vote our conscience and just say no to all of the forms of Obama, republican and democrat, in this race. Well I’m free to vote for whomever I please and that includes “None of the Above.” You and your GOP-E, Mitt loving, lib friends don’t get to tell me how to vote.

Rest assured that there is no one Mitt Romney could run with that would get me to vote for him.

Anyone currently supporting Romney is working for Obama’s win.

If the GOPe thinks they can push a nominee who is a Democrat in all but party affiliation, aka Romney, and force us conservatives to suck it up in November (again—remember McPain?), they have a surprise coming.

I’d rather have Congress and the presidency split and at each other’s throats than have the moderate Republicans and Democrats cooperate with a moderate president against us. Based on Romney’s crummy performance as governor, that’s exactly what we can expect if he winds up as president. Therefore, this voter will not vote in the presidential election if Romney is the nominee.

I’ll vote down ticket, but Romney will never get my vote for the reprehensible way he governed AND ran his campaign of personal destruction against the other nominees. I have never missed a presidential election before, but I will not vote for Romney.

As you wrote, the GOPe is counting on us to sacrifice our values yet again for their crummy candidate, and there’s no reason for them to change so long as they think they can get away with it.

I guess you haven’t heard. Mitt does not pick conservative judges. He doesn’t even pick moderate judges. Whether Obama or Romney gets in there, you’ll be lucky to see anyone as conservative as the moderate Justice Kennedy. Souters and Ginsburgs are more likely to be the type of picks from Mitt. If he somehow wins the general election, it really won’t make any difference who we put into the senate, we are going to get a liberal Supreme Court. Soros can breathe easy.

Romney's shenanigans in Florida did it for me. I was willing to vote for him before that. No more. He was a terrible, statist governor who fully supported the homo agenda, and he's ran a very negative campaign of lies. I absolutely despise those who are voting for him as the most electable candidate. What's “most electable” have to do with it? Even if true, and I doubt it, we lose for winning with Romney. Ideology is certainly at least as important as electability, and Romney's sucks!

A candidate needs to be electable, but they don't necessarily need to be “most” electable. That's purely subjective anyway. Elections often turn in significant ways in the last days, and we're supposed to believe it when the GOPe tells us Romney is “most” electable? The man can't even win better than 50% of Republican votes.

I’ll even be fair to Romney by posting that Massachusetts may have very well enacted the things you wrote about without him. It is a very liberal state. However, Governor Romney didn’t lift a finger to stop any of it. In fact, he actually aided and abetted a good portion of it.

He had his chance. He could have stood up to the left, but he didn’t. Even worse, he still defends his crappy record. At least he’s honest about that. He’s not even bothering with the pretense of running to the right to win the nomination.

Romney can never win. NEVER. He can't unite his base, it's got to be pretty obvious by now. He's a worse candidate than mccain was.

It doesn't matter how much we want hussein out of office, it will be a cake walk for him over romney.

Just wait until the rats start explaining his Mormon religion in 30 second sound bytes. Try defending the old Mormon doctrine of blacks and Indians (Lamanites) being "cursed". That's not a fight I'm going to bother with as much of my family is part Indian. Who cares if it's not taught the same today? It was as recent as the 70's. Expect the democrats to make it sound like an active belief today.

Forget the fact that he was an openly liberal socialist governor of MA who would have been beated in a re-election bid.

If romney wins, you can count on another obama term.

It's insane when you really look at romney to actually consider him as a serious candidate.

I would never suggest you vote for Romney in the primary. My suggestion was if it were between him and Obama in the general election, I would vote for Romney. Romneycare is appalling.

However, if Obama gets another term, we will live under tyranny. I feel like we already do, but I am sure it will get worse. Obama hates the very principles our country was founded on. He stomps on all our religious values. He has left our country vulnerable to attack by weakening our defense. He has weakened our country economically. Is this what we want to pass along to our kids and grandkids?

Romney served in a state that had 85 percent democrats in the legislature, so who knows how many were the princples he believed in or if was overruled by the legislature?

My hope is that Romney could be persuaded by the likes of Paul Ryan, Rubio and the conservative faction of the party to bring him more to the right. That will never happen with Obama. I am concerned if Romney were president what kind of judges he would appoint etc., but I know the kind of judges Obama would appoint and I know I would not like it.

I am concerned if Romney is the nominee because unfortunately there are some people who refuse to vote for a Mormon. I find it sad. I am sure that is not pleasing in God’s eyes.

As far as religion goes, a Mormon versus a person who sat in the church with Jeramiah White? There is no comparison. Put the focus on Obama and his religion or lack thereof.

Romney was not my first choice. I haven’t even voted yet. We vote in a couple of weeks. However, if he is the nominee from our party, I will vote for him because we know what Obama is and our country can barely withstand the rest of this first term much less a second term.

SLC will have no choice but to yield to the GOP-E.

Also, Martinez allows Romney to run a “Western Strategy” in which Romney focuses on Nevada, Colorado, and New Mexico, and can even go for Washington. Florida would be in the bag, and with the western states, Romney can afford to lose Ohio and a few other Midwestern states.

As far as tyranny goes, everything that Obama is trying to do on a national scale, Romney has already accomplished on a state level. Ask the churches in Massachusetts about tyranny and having their principles and values stomped on. Romney has already done it. I don’t care if there were 100% democrats in Massachusetts, Romney was governor, the ideas were his and his signature is on the bills. If he had any problem with what was done, he would have never have proposed those solutions and/or never would have signed them but instead would have let them override his veto.

Ask the conservatives of Massachusetts how well Mitt can be persuaded. He stabbed them in the back at every turn. He left the republican party in shambles. That, plus the fact that he is the easiest candidate for Obama to defeat, makes him the ideal candidate for the democrats. Obama has been gearing up to run against Romney since 2008 and many conservatives have no idea what Romney’s real record is. They will be apoplectic when they find out Mitt’s proud Massachusetts record of achievements and there will be plenty of video tape of him crowing about them to back the democrats up.

I know the kind of judges Mitt will appoint, and I know he has no love for the Constitution. I understand your desire to pretend that Mitt has no past history of performance in this area. It can be quite frightening for those being deceived when they realize their choice is between a marxist communist and a Fabian socialist. But then that is not a choice conservatives have to accept.

Yeah, that’s their propaganda - he’s electable. Nothing about his liberal record. Romeycare/obamacare - It speaks alot about the GOP E and where they stand. Romney is the equivalent of the liberals barry. Many of them were fooled, also. His change wasn’t they had in mind when he said ‘change’.

There is nothing about Patriotism nor OUR COUNTRY in the GOP E. They are all about Party and not America and lie their way through. I don’t want any part of them or their candidates.

And WILL NOT taint myself or AMERICA/Our forefathers, our patriots with pulling a lever for LIAR Romney. IMO, he represents satan as he is the father of lies along with pawn barry. Satan sets himself up through lies! NOT on my vote he won’t.

I am concerned if Romney is the nominee because unfortunately there are some people who refuse to vote for a Mormon. I find it sad. I am sure that is not pleasing in God’s eyes. As far as religion goes, a Mormon versus a person who sat in the church with Jeramiah White? There is no comparison. Put the focus on Obama and his religion or lack thereof.

These people don't care about God. Those are the ones who will be swayed by a 30 second sound byte per my point.

OTOH, their original doctrine designated entire ethnic groups as being cursed resulting in their dark skin. Someone else can defend that belief to God on judgement day. I'm having enough trouble trying to explain it to my kids, especially the brown Brad Pitt looking one. "Sorry son, their doctrine states you're descent of the lamanites and cursed..."

"Thanks dad!"

Even Jesus was likely moreno or darker, as many Semites were.

Think 30 second sound byte that will be hammered into the collective American consciousness 24/7 if romney becomes the nominee.

Think pulverized by the media. That's what's going to happen.

I admit I know very little about the Mormon religion. I would respond with Jeremiah Wright. American’s chickens have come home to roost...in reference to 9/11 over and over and over.

Furthermore, Obama has a record that he can run on and it is probably one of the most dismal records anyone can run on. Energy costs are up. Unemployment is up. Food stamp usage is up. Deficit and debt are up. Corruption is up. Standard of living is down. It is unfortunate that the media does not report all of Obama’s wrong doings, because he would be in prison along with many of his czars.

Fox News and other media should have a daily count that senate democrats have had no budget...1000 days and counting.
