Skip to comments.Are we about to be stuck with Romney?

After winning in Arizona and Michigan, and then again in Washington, Romney has momentum going into Super Tuesday. Even Ohio now seems to be a toss up. If he starts to wrap this thing up then just what exactly are we supposed to do?
I don't want to sit this out but I don't think I can vote for him. Is a third party vote worth it? It won't help get Obama out of office. I am starting to lose hope.
If that @$$wipe Romney wins, it’s probably because Newt and Rick both ran, thus splitting the conservative vote. What should have been done, is that all the conservatives got together, and picked the best one of their number to run alone.
I say go for it and vote 3rd party, if you want continued high gas prices hence higher food prices, more Americans on food stamps, more Americans receiving welfare benefits, Obama to make at least 1 pick for the Supreme Court, the continued clawing at Religious Freedoms. Yep, I say go for it.
A Romney win only secures another 4 years for the better socialist, 0bama.
For sure, but if he wins, he’ll manage the decay using cutting edge technology. The government will still dictate your health benefits, but you’ll be able find out immediately that your bypass isn’t covered using the Internet vs. having to phone the IRS and go through those endless menus. Much better.
If we are stuck with romney, then we are stuck with Obama, or his policies, no matter who wins in November.
It ain’t over til it’s over. Get out on the airwaves and get people to vote for Santorum. He’d make a great President and he’s proven he’s a fighter.
Ohio, save the country and vote Santorum.
I am not “stuck” with anyone.
I’d vote for the Prohibition Party before Romney
And, just who makes the decision who the best conservative candidate is? They all claim to be the best, so for one to drop out in favor of another would be admitting that he isn’t the best conservative for the job. This isn’t the reason any of them ran for office in the first place. There is too much ego on display for any of them to admit that their opponent is the better conservative. Think about it!
I’m not sitting out any election. Every time I vote, I will cast the vote for the most Conservative candidate on the ballot. Conservatives need a long-range plan; this emphasis on immediacy is destroying us, IMHO.
I totally agree.
I have long proposed that the year or so before the elections that the conservatives should have formed a party-within-a-party and hold their own conventions across the country to determine who our candidate should be.
Then we all get behind that candidate before the primaries ever start.
Gingrich or Santorum could win it if they started talking about the forgery. Trump was on a roll until NBC paid him off by renewing his show.
seem like it. Here’s why:
Paul: lots of enthusiasm; has run before; libertarian, good economic policies; would loose in the general, but with all the youth Ronbots, would be close. Win to Obama
Santorum: excitement on the evangalical & social conservative front. Voting record is very big government with things like higher min wage & debt ceiling increases. Will turn off the moderates because of his “preaching”; win to Obama.
Mitts: NE liberal Repub along the lines of Snowe. Not much enthusiasm as evidenced by lower voter turnout in counties he has won. Has to answer to Romneycare with comparisons to Obamacare; but he will gain some moderates. Close, but Win to Obama.
Newt: Lots of excitement when he gets media attention. Higher turnout in counties where he won. Keeps hammering at BO’s policies. But with his divorces, turns off social conservatives. In general, will get hammered in regards to prior scandals, wives, etc. Would be great debates, but win to Obama.
I don’t want to be this negative nor do I want BO win, but this is the reality as I see it.
Rick’s my man on Tuesday. Pray for this election, folks!
We’re in a Marxist dominated Oligarchy.
It won’t matter who is the next president.
Thank you! I'm praying non-stop, trying to hit the airwaves and defend Santorum against all the BS being thrown at him. My only regret is that I've waited this long to see the handwriting on the wall. It's the GOPe & Obama who want to bring Rick down.
However, I agree with your assessment that things look Grim. From the day Rick Perry sat on top of the heap, and it looked like ROmney was going to be an afterthought, nothing good has come of this process. Good candidates and bad candidates climbed to the top, only to be torn down.
Gingrich appeared to be the last man standing, but he too flew brightly and then flamed out and crashed to the ground.
Santorum was the sole candidate to get a 2nd chance of sorts, but he was unacceptable apparently to conservatives, who wanted so badly for the electorate to love Gingrich again. Unfortunately, while they succeeded in bringing Santorum back down to earth, so far there is little to indicate that any of that support has gone back to Gingrich.
Instead, Gingrich has a sting of 3rd and 4th-place finishes. Forget asking when the last time is he beat Romney -- when is the last time he beat ANYBODY? (He beat Paul in Colorado by 1%). How often has he even been in the teens?
Here is a depressing map, showing 1st-place finishers by county:
I think you can guess which colors are whose. Ron Paul features way too prominently in this map -- that's how bad our conservatives are doing, there are several states where Paul has come in 2nd place.
Why worry about that question yet?
There’s a contest on.
Fight it to win. If we win, that question is moot.
If we don’t win, that’s not a question to consider yet.
Hope and pray for a new island to erupt out of the South Pacific where we can go and live. Ideally it will cool rapidly and become lush and verdant by next January.
Things looked grim for George Washington.
Stop with the defeatism.
We have an election to win.
