Skip to comments.What to do with Romney?
Posted on 10/28/2011 10:01:28 AM PDT by EMG2012
Hi everyone-- I'm a longtime lurker of FR and just signed up to get your feedback about a question I am sure many of us are asking ourselves. As a lifelong conservative, I am concerned about the possibility (probability?) of Mitt Romney receiving the GOP nomination for president next year. Many of my friends are convinced Romney will win the nomination, but I am very concerned that if he were to get into office, he would not stand up for the conservative policies we desperately need after the past four years. I want Obama out of office more than anything, but how do I reconcile the possibility of supporting Romney? Is there a third party candidate to draft who could help us take back our country?
Any feedback from all of you is much appreciated-- I just don't know what to think at this point. Thanks!
I will write-in Herman Cain for President and Allen West for Vie President.
I will vote my conscience.
NO - MORE - RINOS
I guess you missed something.
I agree that the fix is in for Romney. And I don’t think anything can be done about it.
Hi FRiend! Welcome to FR.
The essential thing is beating Obama. Recent polls show that “Any Generic Republican” has that in her (or his) Power.
That being said, Romney is too much of a liberal, and like you said, would not carry forth with the Conservative principles for which we have all worked so hard.
So the solution will be to overwhelm Romney in the Primaries with someone who can beat both him AND Obama.
So I am supporting Herman Cain. His meteoric rise in the polls shows that he resonates with voters of the Tea Party and non-RINO Republicans.
Just my humble opinion, and I am sure will get others.
As I posted in another thread, I will vote for the GOP candidate regardless of who it is, & will do everything I can to get the most conservative senators & representatives elected to push a RINO president in the right direction.
We will not survive another four years of Obama.
The only way they will get Romney is if we split the conservative vote. Really, the only guy who can make that happen (maybe) is Rick Perry.
If keeps shunning Rick, as they are now wisely doing, Cain should be able to win this decisively.
If the electorate keeps shunning Rick, as they are now wisely doing, Cain should be able to win this decisively.
The media is desperately trying to manufacture consensus for the sheep to follow.
I’m not a sheep.
>> Is there a third party candidate to draft who could help us take back our country? <<
Ross Perot? Alan Keyes? Howard Phillips? Jesse Ventura? Donald Trump? Lyndon LaRouche?
All available. Did I forget anybody?
What we need is a second one.
A small Electromesh glove?
Herman Cain is just so naturally an average guy.
Just saw some video of him saying “I’m not supposed to run, I’m not supposed to win, and I’m not supposed to be wearing this hat on stage but I’m doing it anyway.” LOL
Romney definitely won’t stand up for conservative values. The GOP Congress will have to hold him accountable.
You get two choices on the ballot. You can “vote your conscious”, or vote against Obama.
Romney can’t win. The South won’t vote for him in the primary. He’s going to do the same thing he did last time.
He’ll come out of the north east in one of the top three positions and he’ll do a lot of damage to whoever is leading with his false and misleading attack ads. And then once the time the south votes, he’ll be no higher than third, and he’ll drop out again.
TEA Party march on GOP headquarters?
With Cain in the race, Romney will face a serious challenge in the midwest as well.
