Tell me who the Republican Establishment Supports (vanity)
12/18/2011 | me

Posted on 12/18/2011 6:01:26 PM PST by FreeAtlanta

I am fed up with the RINO leaders of the Republican Party.

You know who you are.

Just tell me who you want to be the Republican Flag bearer. The one you want to fall with the flag. Let me know.

I want to know so I can vote for someone else. Is it Romney? That almost seems to be the only guy you have left.

I am not a Newt fan. He has made some bad mistakes. I don't think he is as brilliant as some say. Yeah, he has his sexual misconducts. I hate that. I have stayed true to my wife for 20 years - through thick and thin. Why couldn't he????

Even with his relational perversions, I know you establishment guys still hate him. Why? He might just win?

I know you also hate Paul, but Paul is an international wack job. He might get my vote to tick you off. Bachman? I like her, but she was really wacky attacking Perry. Perry? Bless him, but his illegal immigrant stance is too much like you freaking establishment RINOS! Santorum, Rick, you baby. You shouldn't have whined about not getting time in the early debates. You would probably be in the lead right now.

Ok. That is my rant. Establishment GOP, between Newt, Santorum or Bachman, please rate which one you don't won't most as an actual president.

I think any of those 3 can beat Obama in a landslide -I am not sure that Romney or Paul would - so I am sure you want either of those, because you don't really want a Republican to win - but tell me which one of the 3 you fear most.

Oh come on. It’s so easily apparent. The establishment has ordained Flip Romney since November of 2008 and are going hysterical that Newt Gingrich dare challenge their precious in the polls. Just as they destroyed the Herminator they are trying to destroy Newt. Don’t you let them...many of them are right here on FR trying to drag him down.

Bachmann would by first choice...then Santorum. The closest to conservative the GOP is going to get in 2012

The other candidates have some major issues.

This is the problem you get when you have talking head RINOs and others spouting “anyone to beat Obama”. That is code word for “Liberal”

Look, as far as Conservative issues and programs are concerned, neither of the two you named are sufficiently Conservative on the question of what to do about the illegal aliens.

No matter how many times folks point out to these candidates that more than half the illegals can drive back home in a couple of days in their own cars, they keep coming up with trigger words like "humane", "heartless", "can't just expell" and so forth.

90% of the current crop come from one country ~ MEXICO. They got here. They can get back! Most of them live closer to Mexico than they do Maine, Florida, Alaska, Hawaii, or even Washington state!

40 million Americans relocate every year ~ should be a cinch for Mexicans.

Romney and the GOP better wise up—the Obama folks have been preparing for a campaign with the Mittwit—and they are salivating at the prospect.

It is going to be up to the GOP primary voters in the initial primary states to send a message.

Last time around, this thing was over by the first week of February.

The Republican establishment supports and will support anyone who is not Tea Party. There is no place in the GOP leadership for that bunch of right wing radicals. And the sooner they can purge the TeaParty from the GOP the sooner they can go back to being the whining back benchers they were before 1980. No power, but they could not be held responsible for anything.

I remember back in '96 when there was talk about who the GOP candidate would be, and hearing stuff it being "Bob Dole's turn," like he deserved it or something, and then he got his A$$ handed to him by Billy Jeff. Made me sick. We don't need Romney, we need to run a candidate based on ISSUES, because the 'Rats have no ideas or solutions, just emotional drivel.

The GOP establishment can go pound sand.

Maybe the thick years outnumber the thin.

And if the thin years outnumbered the thick years would you honor your oath you made to your wife and God?

Of, if it did not selfishly suit you, would you quit and run?

Anyone who is not Tea Party. So they are okay with Romney, Perry, Gingrich or Santorum. They panicked at the thought of Cain winning the nomination. They know that Bachmann, Paul and even Santorum do not stand a chance, but they probably threw in Santorum into the mix to raise his profile so he could be the running mate of Romney who they think will get the nomination.

The left wants to run against a pale, pastel- not a bright contrasting color. Their desire to deconstruct America can only win against a 'soft' opponent without the vision of this country's greatness, but a willingness to 'compromise' with those across the aisle.

McCain fit the bill last time, I can only assume Romney would this time.

They destroyed Sarah and Cain with their dirty tactics. They are trying to destroy Gingrich right now. Our candidate must be 'pale', not a contrast to Obama and his socialism. Otherwise, people might notice the difference and vote accordingly.

This current crop of democrats know how to destroy their opposition. Obama wouldn't be where he is today, had he not unsealed 'sealed' divorce documents. Everything is game with this crowd.

Romney looks good because they haven't turned their 'guns' on his Morman ass. They plan to hang him by his own petard- Romneycare- by shoving his hypocracy right back in his face. To say nothing of 'blessed underwear' and polygamy in general.

First of all, I like your tagline!

Dole might have won in ‘96 if not for that little fascist Perot.

Just wait. Donald T. Rump is going to run this time to accomplish the same ends, by orders of G. Soros.

The GOP could nominate a Coolidge/Elvis ticket and it would not matter.

I’m not a defeatist, just a realist.

The last time Republicans had any sort of vision was in 1994. Before that it was Reagan. Now, the one who gave us vision in 94 is back. Screw him, give us the flip-flopping guy who was able to win in Barney Frank’s district. Maybe we can double him up with the Republican senator from Massachussetts. Romney/Brown. That’ll really be something.

Newt Gringrich allied himself with Ronald Reagan to build the Reagan Coalition, the Religious Right, and the Republican majority (together the Reagan Revolution) which directly led the downfall of the Soviet Union, the Contract with America, government reforms, less government, tax cuts, a balanced budget, and the great, long-standing Reagan economy.

Under a Republican president, they [the Republican Congress] added over $3 trillion to the federal deficit, shunned conservative policy in favor of Beltway influence-peddling, and so damaged the GOP brand that we...lost the majority Gingrich had worked years to forge,..How much should I really care that Newt’s fabulous colleagues think his reemergence would be a disaster for Republicans? Lest these characters forget,...2010 was not a merit promotion; they [the Republicans] were the only alternative in town.

We need a genuine leader to take us out of this mess and I believe Newt Gingrich has that capacity for leadership, something Romney has NEVER demonstrated. Newt is not a perfect person, but who is?

Once upon a time this whole "Republican Establishment" thing made sense. There was a reality behind it.

Read Theodore White's Making of the President books from the 1960s on what he called the "perfumed Stockade."

Those days are long gone. Nowadays the old Republican establishment is dead or dying or long since gone Democrat.

The establishment is just somebody who's been in Washington longer than you have.

And if you haven't been in Washington at all, then everybody in politics is the Establishment.

Once upon a time, New York ran the country and people outside the East Coast could be envious or resentful.

Now, when your Establishment Republicans or RINOs come from South Carolina or Utah or Arizona or Nebraska, it's pretty clear that the old days when talk of the Establishment had meaning are long since over.
