Posted on 11/27/2009 8:30:40 PM PST by Noob1999
Why is every single thread that I log onto this day after Thanksgiving, have a picture of Mitt Romney, that then trashes him??
Does JimRob and this website condone the Palin trashers, and try to create a Mitt backlash, to trash him?
Does this website wish to promote a Republican/Conservative candidate who has no real business experience, like our current loser-in-chief, Zer0?
Mitt has problems, as do each and every Pubbie, Conservative, or RAT potential to lead this once great US!
Back off on the hits to Romney, (or maybe do you see him as a threat, much like the RATs see Palin as a threat??)
So you are IN FAVOR of chopping babies to pieces?
In the video, Mitt Romney enthuses about chopping babies to pieces and flushing them down the toilet or the dispos-all. He promises to do nothing to stop people from chopping up babies.
Nobody’s bashing Romney, just providing access to a video in which he enthuses at great length about how wonderful it is that women in America have the choice to chop their babies into little pieces.
Doesn’t matter if you’ve been here 10 years or 10 days, you’re still clueless!
..................I want 2010 to be the year CONSERVATIVES take control of Congress,..................
I want 2010 to be the year of take away the RAT control of congress. We can rally our troops later!
I just did that, but you know he said he lost his PW so if that was true he will not answer. If he is using a Sock Puppet he will not answer either. If he were honorable he would have identified himself in his tag-line. If he were honorable he would have waited until he received a new PW in his email.
If he were polite, he would not tell me to shut-up rather than respond to concerns posted above.
“Why is every single thread that I log onto this day after Thanksgiving, have a picture of Mitt Romney, that then trashes him??”
Because if you aren’t perfect, and haven’t always been perfect, then you are condemned to Hell for all eternity.
Best I can figger it.
This is how Barack Obama got elected. Because a lot of the ego-driven Conservatives here have to have candidates of THEIR choosing, because the world revolves around THEM, doncha know.
If they don’t get their way in the game, then they do their best to ruin it for everyone else.
It’s 1 AM here, and I’m going to bed.
Enjoy your play time with the Romnoid!
Replacing “rats” with RINOs is a bad idea.
We all learned about that in W’s terms.
Hey, did you see that aShepard, the poster whom you say is you but lost your password and the staff never responded to your “password please” requests, was posting very recently?
That is where you are wrong.
That is the way we've BEEN doing it for years and it hasn't worked.
The time to lay down the law is now.
It is not our job to toe the Republican Party line.
It is the Republican Party's job to put forth a candidate that motivates us.
.................You should address #120. That post brings up an interesting point..................
I moved from RI to Texas - Cox to Charter. Charter set up my account incorrectly, so that all my correspondence reads Charter, via Cox, and then accesses my ex account at Cox.
So trying to communicate with JimRob, or any other imbedded response website, always used my addy at Cox, and any messaging was deleted
So to stay on one of my favorite websites, until I can get a Charter geek in to fix my situation, I signed up as Noob1999, trying to stay from all your kitty bullsh1t!
By this reasoning, apparently nobody.
I think you need to calm down. Then, after you've done that, let's see something with some substance - something that will convince the conservatives that currently find him unacceptable. Until we've done that, he's in the same boat as he was in the last primaries.
And only then, can we start promoting him as being someone who can "capture more than 50% of the vote".
So far, I know of only one candidate from last time around who generated true excitement among conservatives. Hopefully she will run. I grant there could be others (the Marxist-in-Chief was hardly on the map by this point in '05).
I went and re-read your post. I think we found a discussion point:
Its about evil socialism versus capitalism.
How is RomneyCare about capitalism instead of 'evil socialism'? Discuss.
And Romney can count on my fiercest opposition.”
There’s that negativity I posted about, seems it would be more productive to vigorously support the candidate of your choice.
There are huge negatives to Mitt Romney and I fail to see much positive about him from a conservative perspective.
The only thing I can see in his favor is possibly business experience. But let me ask one thing. Did he leave Mass. with a budget surplus? Did he cut taxes there?
Since he’s anti-gun and pro-socialized medicine I could never support him for president in any case. He may be slightly better than obama but would be horrible for the Republican party.
Now about your plan to replace democrats with RINOs. Romney tried to run to the left of Ted Kennedy in the senate race.
Then as governor, later, he banned assault weapons, saying that those evil guns are only good for killing people (that’s why so many die at Camp Perry, I guess). Plus a host of other things.
As president or senator, he’d be just as liberal and as far, or further to the left, than he is now.
Plus, he lies to convince people he’s really a conservative, and that is totally unacceptable to me- he’ll lie about something, or anything, else to get what he wants (like letting his staff use phony badges to get access to venues, for one thing).
My point was that if ashepard is still active you may get an answer from him, then that would mean he is not ashepard.
You obviously already knew the answer and only intended to be a subversive disruptor.
Now you seem to act the rude pseudo-victim when caught out.
While sound in theory, in reality, it is how we got into this mess. Oooh, support your candidate. Sorry, I don’t work that way, I support my cause, and the candidate can campaign for my support. I’m tired of playing the hold my nose game. If Romney wants my vote, he can earn it. He can repudiate all that he has done wrong, he can go after the liberals again and again on these mindless expansions of government. He can repudiate his own words during a Republican presidential debate where he put forth the concept that the government is the answer, not the problem.
He won’t do that, so I’ll attack him like I attack Obama, Pelosi and the rest of the liberal clown squad. He gets no special exemption because he might be a part time conservative - though I’ve yet to actually hear a conservative opinion come from his lips.
If you are one of his supporters, then good luck to you. Expect to find me and hundreds of others trashing your candidate over and over again, using his own positions, his own actions and his own words.
Myself, I’ll stand against anyone, like Obama, like Pelosi, like Romney, who thinks that Momma Government can treat all our ills, because we’re too stupid to do it ourselves.
He is a RINO...changed parties cause he could...didn’t change his ideology much...we need NO MORE RINOS...
Pinging you to this thread. Are you noob 1999 (as claimed), and did you post the pro-Romney thread tonight?
Inquiring minds want to know.
................Either way, in my dictionary, that’s the definition of LOSER.........................
In my dictionary, a LOSER is one who cannot beat the current Socialist/Communist in Charge, ZER0.
I’m not really persuaded as to one’s politics, abortion, gun rights, or any other issue, other than getting this total A-Hole out of office.
At this stage - three years into the future, please don’t write off anyone that can ignite more than 50% of the electorate.
Just get this disaster out of office.
Now, If the freaks in SF can dump Pelosi; the beautiful folks in LA dump PigNose Waxman; kick Reid out of the casino in 2010; get rid of Dodd and Bwarney; then I’ll take a different stance looking into 2012 - after 2010.
But, right now, every pubbie, keep their powder dry!
“Since hes anti-gun and pro-socialized medicine I could never support him for president in any case.”
This is exactly what I was referring to, you spent your entire post telling me why you don’t/won’t support Romni yet I haven’t a clue who you DO/WOULD support, nor why.
Right after the election of 2004, the election of 2008 was being fought on these pages, much as 2012 is now. I too am more concerned about 2010 and stopping 0bama or at least slowing the communist bastard down.
If I had to choose a presidential candidate right now, Romney wouldn’t even be on my list. Sarah Palin looks good but we don’t know at this point who will be on the national scene for 2012 but I do know that I will vote for a conservative, even if I have to write in my own name.
I lost sight of that in the last election and voted for McCain, mainly because Sarah Palin was on the ticket, it won’t happen again.
I see what you're getting at.
You're willing to put up with a partial A-hole over a total A-hole.
If that's the best argument you can come up with to promote Romney's candidacy...
It’s not a game, it’s my freedom, it’s my nation, it’s my family. To what would be the point to get Obama out of office, and to put in someone who’s not just about equally liberal on most issues I care about, but has the skills that Obama lacks in actually carrying out his desires?
If McCain was president right now, amnesty and the health care monstrosity would have already been passed. Sure, GM probably wouldn’t have become Government Motors, and the needed troops in Afghanistan would have been already sent, but I think we’d be in a worse mess today than we presently are in, simply because McCain would know how to sway the mostly liberal to join the cause.
So, no, my top priority is not getting Obama out of the White House, my top priority is supporting ANYONE, candidate or not, who speaks up in a conservative voice and tells the Empress Pelosi that she’s wearing no clothes.
My worst enemies are those who can advance the liberal agenda. Romney’s already instituted mandatory healthcare and signed into law homosexual shacking up. Accomplishments the dreaded Obama can’t even come close to laying claim to.
passwordd? I see a hint why it might not work.
Nobody is writing anybody off.
What is Mitt Romney doing that right now that we should find inspiring?
I guarantee you, even if Sarah Palin didn't have a book out she'd be attracting thousands of people to hear her speak.
Can you say the same for Mitt Romney or Mike Huckaby or any other potential candidate?
Are we to be faulted for being so gung-ho for someone who is so gung-ho herself?
If Mitt Romney can't inspire people to camp out just to meet him THREE YEARS before an election, what makes you think he'll be able to do so ONE MONTH before an election?
I'm getting ready to go to bed and did not need that picture in my mind.
Perhaps because he hasn't yet been given a list of peer
approved candidates that he may support?
Poll: Romneys Favorables Among Republicans Drop Below 50 Percent
Washington Independent ^ | 11/24/09 | David Weigel
Posted on Friday, November 27, 2009 3:27:00 PM by Leisler
This is a surprising result from Public Policy Polling, the occasionally partisan group which nonetheless called the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial races accurately. Mitt Romneys favorable rating among Republican voters has fallen to 48 percenta plurality, but a weak one. And the trend lines are even more interesting. Since April, when PPP started asking the question, Sarah Palins favorable number has moved from 76 percent to 75 percent; Mike Huckabees has moved from 67 percent to 65 percent. Romney, alone, has seen a statistically significant drop from 60 percent down to 48.
The results are so strange that PPPs Tom Jensen doesnt have a theory. One possible explanation, though, is how health care has dominated the national political debate since early summer. It the spring, Romney bounced as high as 67 percent. The summer and fall have taken a toll on him. As Andy Barr astutely pointed out in September, Romney has been hamstrung by his health care record. As governor of Massachusetts, he compromised with Democrats and signed a mandate-driven health care bill, and ever since then Republicans have used that against him.
Inside the beltway, Romney is seen as a classic front-runner whos picked his issues wiselyhes four months away from publishing a book on American greatnessand retained smart campaign staffers. But Huckabee is leading the field in national and Iowa polls, and Palin clearly has the biggest following of any possible 2012 candidate.
Shaddap you, or I’ll write your name down as my choice for president when we get stuck with a ‘compromise’ candidate. *grin* Oh, alright, I’m sorry for you having the ability to picture such a thing.
I will support (campaign for, contribute to, vote for) the candidate that best represents my views and has proven that they can ably promote those views. I can’t change reality, I can only vote for the candidates on the ballot that I think most closely represent my views.
I am not a “supporter” of Romni but did vote for him in the primary because I felt he was the best of a weak group. I was originally interested in Huchabee but the more I saw of him the more he troubled me. Thompson had a lot of supporters here and his views did more closely represent mine but his lack of executive experience and his complete collapse during “Chinagate” made me doubt that he was up to the job.
Sarah Palin has to demonstrate that she is up to the job (her resigning didn’t help), if she thinks she’s had it tough so far will she stand up to what President Bush did for eight years.
RomneyCare. That’s the only thing that needs to be said.
Exactly! You wonder - why’s this retread pushing so hard?
And for a candidate who is opposite of what this site stands for. It’s past zot time, IMO.
Romney is a gun grabber. What more do you need?
I'm figuring he or she is either being paid by the Romney people to foment doubt and confusion, or he or she is actually a RAT out to foment doubt and confusion, or he or she likes stirring things up, which I must admit, I do from time to time.
But, when I do it, I actually put forth arguments to back up my stirring.
The future of our country is not about abortion, gun rights, free speech, conservatives vs progressives!
Its about evil socialism versus capitalism.
I couldn't disagree more. The 2nd amendment, ie "gun rights", is about the only buttress we have left against losing what remains of our freedom.
Why should we trade away every other conservative issue to get a candidate who is slightly less socialist than obama?
The best you can say about Mitt is that he's an incredible executive? Are you sure your not from DU?
This has been an interesting evening for me!
After I’ve been on these boards for more than 10 years - under a different addy, aShepard - I am now better understanding how the fissure between the conservative side of the realm, and the liberal side.
The liberal side had a 2008 choice of the female or the black guy - it probably made little difference what their idealogy was, but the union and the underdogs supported the black guy. No-one knew what the hopey/changy thing was all about, no one cared what he was all about, no liberals looked into his radical muslim background, he was the anti-Bush!
Tonight, having experienced the “noobie revenge,” a couple of kitties, I truly see the fissure within our Conservative/Pubbie party(s).
We all have this loathing for the “RINO’s”; the pro-choicers; the anti-gunners; the health carists; the big governmentists; the whatever issueists.
But we are not coherent. We all go off on our own key issue.
Me, my key issue is to get this disaster of a president, and the Rat movers out of congress. If that means that RINO’s move in, so be it. Just change the current balance of power.
If each of us wants to change government to mirror an individual cause, or selected causes, we’re doomed.
Remember that only about 55% of us pay income taxes, so the rest will vote to increase their take: the deck is already stacked against capitalist reform.
Go over to DU, or any other RAT website. Most of the discussion is centered about the F@@kin repubs, not about dissention within their ranks. They all drink the same kool-aid.
We will have a difficult time ferreting out the RATs, unless we tone down our internal squabbles to present a more united political front.
My point of my post about FR bashing Romney at this stage of the fight, was not to promote him, but to quell the internal invective within our ranks!
Thanks for the experience!
Sounds a lot like the complaints Obamatons used when we exposed him using his own words.
Do you not think the RATS have access to these videos?
Do you not think they would use them against Romney AFTER they get him nominated?
His experience dwarfed the man who eventually won the White House, but be that as it may, I'm only voting for those who represent my views, primary or general. If that means that a 100% liberal gets into office instead of a 75% liberal, then I'll accept full responsibility for no candidate bothering to run on a platform I could vote for. My vote is no longer free.
this is why we have bama as dictator....
we could have had a sensible liberal/conservative who at least loved America, and instead we have what we have.....a liberal/leftist/communist who hates America...
lets see now....a liberal/conservative who loves America and would protect it OR a liberal/leftist/communist who hates America...gee, I don' know....such a choice...
I imagine a world where Fred or Rudy of even Mitt was our prez.....we sure wouldn't be having trials for terrorist in NYC or jailing Navy Seals and even Mitt wouldn't have had this zillion dollar bailout....
Well, personally I’ve ruled out Romney as you can see...
It’s 3 years away, there’s still time for things to shake out. Last year I liked Fred Thompson, but he didn’t seem to have the energy to get into full campaign mode.
At this point, out of the would-be front runners I like Palin best. She strikes me as a person of character and integrity. She seems to share conservative values on all the major issues.
I think it’s unfortunate she didn’t finish her term as governor; I think it would have seasoned her and given her time to flesh out her credentials, but that was her decision to make.
Thanks for your kind reply!
