Posted on 02/02/2012 3:58:43 PM PST by ml/nj
I am so tired of hearing what's wrong with our guys. Romney's a RINO. Newt slept with Nancy, and a bunch of others I guess. Santorum has no support. Paul is wacko. Cain was too black, so he had to be destroyed I guess. Palin is a supposed idiot, or she doesn't want to run.
It's all so boring and depressing that I barely listen to Rush any more. I don't care whether he endorses someone, or not.
The country is still going to hell in a handbasket. The usurping communist is still in the White House. Reid is still the Senate Majority Leader. Pelosi even gets more attention from the MSM than Boehner does. Moochelle is still getting fancy chocolates overnighted to wherever she goes.
Please! Let's get back to stressing whatever is good about our people, or not saying anything at all about them. Bickering and negativism just serve to increase Obama's popularity. He DESERVES to be the target.
I’m with you. I’m pretty sure WE’VE done an outstanding job guaranteeing Barack the Kenyan a second term. Who in their right mind would want to vote for any of the scumbags we’re putting up?
Case closed, Romney is the GOP only hope.
I don't need no stinkin' party, I just have to decide on a good write-in for POTUS if RINO Romney is the chosen one.

Sorry. Request denied. The process is called politics as usual. It’s a dirty business, but even the candidates play by these rules. Mitt, Newt, whoever.
Those who blame Conservatives for The Messiah's re-election because they REFUSED TO ACCEPT ANOTHER RINO FROM THE RNC are NOT TO BLAME!
We are sick and tired of the RNC putting up crap Liberal Candidates, and the State-Run-Media running 24/7 promo's for them for 4 years between Elections.
If there's no Conservative candidate, they don't get my vote. END OF STORY.
I’m sorry, but I don’t understand what you mean by the phrase “our guys”. Are you conservative first or party-first?
I don't think you are with me, unless you look at scumbag as a relative term. None of these supposed scumbags is a person with a made up life history who only has communists and criminals for friends, and loathes the United States and everything about our history.
Every candidate but Newt was secretly working for Romney. LOL
Ever seen this ?
“Welcome to Free Republic, America’s exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!”
Let’s suppose this actually describes the most typical and ‘vocal’ denizens of this here site.
How is it you’re surprised that they are largely unimpressed or opposed to the so-called ‘candidates’ parading around trying to impersonate a potential President ?
NONE of those you enumerated above seem to have made the cut, yet, as credible or convincing Standard Bearers for who and what we are or aspire to be — at least for the overwhelming majority of us.
“Let’s get back to stressing whatever is good about our people, or not saying anything at all about them.”
To suggest it is somehow unwholesome, inappropriate or simply ‘bad form’ to criticize them is remarkably obtuse, at the very least.
WHY bother holding primaries or elections if you aren’t weighing the merits of the ‘candidates’ and discarding those that do not serve our needs or ends ? And how do you DO that without expressing what’s wrong with ‘em and why they don’t make the grade ?
Granted, it would certainly dampen the noise down, considerably, but it would ALSO reduce the ‘light’ level, too, doanchaknow ?
One Man’s Opinion
What I mean is someone who will at least pander to us, and is an American.
Well, maybe I should have put scumbags in quotes. We (conservatives and Republicans)have trashed and smeared every one of our candidates. The DemocRATS haven’t even put their gloves and climbed int he ring yet and our guys are done. (IMHO) We’ve given the Billion Dollar Man all of the ammunition he needs for his campaign ads.
I’m old enough to not hold my nose any more, and so I shan’t. I’ve been through all the stages of loss and am happy to be happy. We have enjoyed the easiest existence ever experienced by man...and listen to us bitch. I guess that’s who we are. Be happy and worry all you want.
If you mean "us conservatives" then there is at least a reasonable case against each of those candidates even being a fellow conservative. In some conservative eyes there are no conservatives running for president this year.
If you mean "us Republicans" then you have only the GOP to blame. And not because they are supposedly cramming a RINO down our throats, but because they allowed anyone besides a single pre-picked candidate to run at all.
The GOP should have had enough control to decide who they wanted to represent them this election cycle and done whatever was necessary to keep every other potential candidate from running. The fact that they allowed a gaggle of candidates to run, some who turned out to be complete jokes, is their own fault.
We as Americans might like the fact that we get a choice, and that is great, but the GOP is a private organization. It has a reputation to defend. It is going to go up against a candidate that is unopposed in the primary. Why does it want so much money being flushed down the drain during a primary fight where all that is happening is the generation of free opposition research for Obama?
The GOP is now officially too big a tent. It wants to be all things to all the people who agree on only two things: let us keep our unregistered guns and keep our taxes low.
The GOP is a laughingstock. The current primary process does not help conservatives, because the only people who listen to the GOP are potential candidates similar to their chosen one. That is why Pawlenty got out. That is why Christie and Daniels never got in.
From now until the end of time (or the end of the GOP) there will be one RINO vs a bunch of conservatives who will split the conservative vote. The RINO will get the nod, but only after having to move so far right that he is no longer acceptable to independents.
We need a two-pronged attack:
1. Help to establish the Green Party as an official party by giving them over 5% of the presidential vote in the next cycle. This will split the liberal/socialist vote.
2. Help to establish a viable national conservative party. Work with the Republicans when they are sufficiently conservative, and pull our support when they drift too far left.
I know that there are people who don't like the multiparty systems they have in Europe and Israel, but the smaller parties do get concessions on issues important to them. For example, there wouldn't be as many Israeli settlements as there are if Israel were a two-party democracy IMHO.
It’s depressing. I’ve also become less and less interested in listening to my favorite radio pundits, and am beginning to slack quite a bit on my postings to FR.
One can only stand so much disappointment with how our side is conducting what should be an all-out assault against the enemies of liberty and freedom.
It’s as though we Tea Party, patriotic, Constitution upholding, liberty loving, God-fearing Americans have been zotted by the body politic.
I nearly want to wash my hands of the ‘system’, and prepare for Revolution II.
From the looks of things, Pal, I've been seeing it for seven more years than you have. While you're worried about getting everything you want I'm worried about getting some more Sotomayors and Kagans on the Court. I'm worried about someone who would veto anything a Republican Congress sent to him. I'm worried about more czars and recess appointments. I could go on.
I was going to post a LOL back but it is not really funny.It is sad.

Yeah, probably berry-0 will be re-elected. : (
(Unless s0r0s wants him replaced.)
Dude, they all suck. The GOP died when Reagan left office. The two Bushes buried it.
What on earth gives you reason to think Romney will ever give conservatives the time of day? Right now he is working hard to ignore us entirely. If he doesn't think we are worth any of his time now, why would he bother with us later?
Romney is not just a RINO. He is Obama, the White version. Go back to your friends at the DNC, I mean RNC and tell them no deal. There is no way I will ever vote for that secret socialist.
But we got what we got. Not much different really than at this time in 2008 when it was down to Romney, Huckabee or McCain. A trifecta of flaws.
The saving grace of 2008 was the introduction to the Party, one great lady, Sarah Palin. I have never seen a candidate able to unite a broken party so quickly like she did with her convention speech. Lets hope and pray there is another such choice by our nominee. A VEEP that will get us all excited again about November.
Who is Newt secretly working for?
It’s the nature of Power. It is dirty and nasty, cruel and mean. There is no other way to get power in a world filled with evil. If you really want to get depressed-—read what happened in Machiavelli’s age.....things were really worse then and many of the people couldn’t even read and had no way to express themselves.
We do have an advantage===and with the internet it has mushroomed like the elites were afraid of-—secrets get out now.......but the elites will NEVER give up power without a nasty deadly fight. That’s politics.
You have to shut out all the white noise. Too much information today. Turn off the TV and don’t read any newspapers. Be very selective and read history and philosophy-—and you will realize that nothing has really changed. Some of the best ideas in history were thought up thousands of years ago.
The Nature of Man does not change....and Marx was very wrong. But there are those who want total control of the world and man.
You have correctly identified the ‘real’ object of the exercise as removing the incumbent.
Getting there, however, requires a serious investment in ‘retail politics’ which seems to expose your tender sensibilities to various unpleasantness and unhappiness with the messiness of the process.
Man up, Dude ! Welcome to the ‘real world’ ...
‘Our guys’, as you so casually labelled ‘em, had better be able to ‘stand and deliver’ in the very messy process you so decry — what do you suppose they’re going to get from from the Donks come September and beyond ?
You can’t seriously expect they deserve some kid-gloves treatment from us or whoever — ‘If you can’t say anything nice, say nothing at all !’ — and then expect ‘em to survive the kind of campaign the Donks will deliver.
Keep your eye on the prize — Dump Hussein Obama ! It may not be pretty but it’s the only system we’ve got to get the job done.
Complaining that FR somehow looks and sounds too much like ‘retail politics’ and that we should somehow ‘cool it’ and make nice is a remarkably lame political ‘strategery’ and / or point of view.
One Man’s Opinion
Y’all are echoing how I feel today: depressed.
I am not encouraged or hopeful and the music from Jaws is playing in my head. The GOP-E is so stupid. They actually think Romnuts is going to be able to beat The Kenyan.
We are so much more informed here. That’s why it’s scary to read your like minded comments and hear your thoughts.
Those of you wise ones who say that we just need to be happy and live our lives in spite of the dire prospects for ‘12 are right.
I’m trying to plan a strategy though. Will I work on state and local efforts? Like you, I have tired of media pundits. And the talk show hosts are just plain boring and most of them don’t get it or are on the wrong side of reason.
I’m stickin’ with Levin, deleted Drudge and have turned off Faux.
Anyone else have a plan that you want to share?
The sad thing is that my 30 something children and grandchildren are going to have to deal with the repercussions of another four years of the systematic destruction of our country, if Bam is reelected. And if I try to talk to them about this, they just look at me. They are so busy with the daily goings on in their own lives.. oblivious to what’s in store for them down the road.
Some day,we can say we tried to do our part.
And we can tell them how America used to be. SIGH.
Reagan was an anomaly -- a real Conservative who truly believed that big government is inherently evil.
Before and after Reagan, the Republican Presidents believed in government as a "positive good."
There is nothing wrong with ranting against the Statists that infest the GOP and MSM. It's fun and stress relieving!
At this point I would vote for the son of sam over Obama if forced to. This last week did it for me. I don’t like Romney, but it’s hot about him, it’s about getting that communist usurprer and tyrant out of office.
No sale. I held my nose in 2008 when they foisted McLame on us....Never Again!
Au contraire, mon ami.
I will NOT be spoon fed RINO after RINO, and vote for them, as the sheep do who MUST vote for whomever they are told they have as the "Chosen One".
I'll decide who best represents the most VALUE; NOT THE RNC!
I too will never vote for Mitt. You do realize that if by some chance Mitt was elected that nothing would change?
Mitt would do absolutely nothing to turn our Republic towards Liberty.
With Mitt or Obama, the end result is exactly the same -- although at a different time frame.
Voting for the equal of evils is evil.
I'm no fan of either, but one gave us Thomas and the other gave us Alito. It should be something to keep in mind when pretending there's no difference between even anointed Republicans and the Democrat Slime.
Then be a stand up guy and vote for Obama if Romney is the GOP nominee. I would respect you more if you did. Don’t weasel out with third parties and write ins. Go the full Monty.
Oh, please. Please don't make me defend Romney.
But it's just absurd to suggest that Romney and Obama are cut from the same cloth. Can you name any friends of Romney who are communists or criminals? Can you name any Obama friends who are not? Romney and I have, I think, very different political visions for America. But at least I believe that in his heart he is an American. It's a big enough difference for me that if that's the only choice I have, then it's going to be the choice I make.
I think we here on FR still do our share of examining Obama and his ilk. My message was really directed to Rush. I don't know how else to say it. But he directs quite a bit of the debate, and these days he's directing it in the wrong direction.
You make it sound like these candidates have just been "criticized" instead of torn down. We're all open to information about the candidates good or bad but name-calling, rumor-mongering, and toxic rhetoric is not a great strategy.
I too am worried about our country. I'd be about as worried if the nominee is Romney as I would be about Obama but time's running out to pump life into these campaigns. Let's start spreading the word about our candidates and how they can reverse the damage. The people want to rebuild America. They want jobs, growth, and the best healthcare in the world. Basically what they had before Obama.
Agree. We need to get this nomination process behind and then get behind whomever is it because our future, your kids future and your grand kids future depends on it. All of us need to stay focused on the task at hand: beating 0bama in November.
I don’t like myth one bit, but I am resigned to the fact my choice is not going to be the pick. y top two are Ron Paul and Sarah. Neither are going to win, but it’s not about sour grapes for me, it’s about ousting the usurper and holder, geithner, napolitano, chu, Jackson, la hood, the czars, etc
I refer my honorable friend to the reply I posted some moments ago.
My dream ticket is Palin / Paul. That is not going to happen.
I hate Romney, but pathetically in the USA in 2012, he is more electable than the others.
I hate saying this, bt if we have to drag is wimpy butt over the finish line to. Get thugbama out of office, so be it.
