Between Romney and Obozo, there is NO fight. At best, it is Obozo vs. Obozo in white face. If Romney were elected, it is quite likely to mean the end of the Republican Party as a vehicle for conservatism. That would mean having to slog through the morass to create a new and actually conservative party to destroy the castrated GOP and defeat the Demonrats simultaneously. Life is only so long. It is easier to keep Romney from prevailing and then restore the GOP to its base. The nation is probably destroyed in either event but can be restored by a non-Romney GOP.
This enemy of yours was a Reagan State Chair when he challenged Gerald Ford the proto-Romney of 1976. It turned out that it was better that Carter was elected because Carter's utter ineptude (so reminiscent of Obozo) paved the way for two landslide elections of Ronaldus Maximus.
My presidential votes have gone to each and every GOP candidate since the nomination of Richard Nixon in 1968. Few of those votes were worth casting (1972, 1980, 1984, 1988, 200 and 2004). In retrospect, it is hard to justify not voting for Wallace in 1968, for Ford in 1976, or for Bush the Elder in 1992 or Dole or McCain. Bush the Younger was blessed with opponents who were really worth voting against and Bush the Younger was willing to break with his daddy's Wall Street foreign policy. I have had it with pragmatic voting for the GOP. That's all over now. If Romney wants my vote and the vote of others like-minded, he is really going to have to work for it as are his marionettes.
You say that you "have only one goal that (you) care about and that is getting rid of Obama." That betrays a poverty of imagination and a poverty of commitment and, if you believe that Congressional or Senatorial Republicans will be able to restrain the Mittwit as POTUS, you are possessed by a touching naivete.
Let's see. Who are those GOP pillars of Congressional strength that you will be depending upon to keep Mittens honest for the very first time in his self-centered money-obsessive life? Senators like: Lisa Murkowski, LAMAR!!! Alexander, Robert Corker, Susan Collins, Richard Lugar, Nancyboy Kirk, Orrin Hatch, David Dewhurst, Lindsay Graham, Saxby Chambliss, Johnny Isakson, Thad Cochran, John McCain, John Cornyn, Scott Brown, etc. That is just fifteen whores that I have named to go with the remaining Demonrat Senators. There are more. When those "Republicans" defect to the enemy, just how will Slick Willard feel or be restrained? They will be giving him cover to vote his leftist prejudices. Maybe we can depend on those giants of House leadership to hold Romney in line: Weepy John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and the rest of the whores who cannot bring themselves to cut off further increases in Obozo's election year allowance by refusing to raise the debt limit? If you know anything whatsoever about politics, you will know better.
A vote for Tom Hoefling (FReeper Eternal Vigilance) is a vote for Tom Hoefling. A vote for Romney is a vote for Obozo in GOP drag.
The GOP is essentially a monarchist party which marches in lockstep behind any GOP POTUS. There would be no rebellion in the ranks on Capitol Hill. No actual Republican could be nominated for POTUS until 2020, if ever. Thanks but no thanks. You cannot see why because you intentionally blind yourself to reality. I refuse to do that. I won't be alone. One good result if Obozo defeats Romney is that the GOP will be recoverable. Another will probably be that Romney and his obscene financiers and all the Muffies and Skippers and their well-padded trust funds will be reduced, hopefully enough to prevent any re-run of this year's despicable primary victory by lying money and lying money alone in the GOP.
There are limits to the resources of even Romney's unprincipled Wall Street whores.
“And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for the second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering.”
— Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Samuel Kercheval, Monticello, July 12, 1816

All the RINOs in congress and all the defects of the GOP organization will not magically disappear if Obama is re-elected. You are going to be every bit as angry & disappointed the day after the election as you are now. If not more so. You accuse “poverty of imagination and a poverty of commitment” because I don’t agree with and won’t buy into your farcical, hollywood-esque drama-play where Obama is re-elected and some white knight swoops in after the fact to bring in a new age of restored conservatism -or- Romney is elected and the world ends as we know it. Then you offer no viable alternative but to urge me to knowingly and willingly waste my vote on an off-the-radar candidate that will result in a statistical +1 for Obama.
Well you are doing a crap job of selling it. I’ll give you the next four entire *years* just to see if you can get your option on the radar, much less present the slightest challenge at all to the dominant two-party system we have.
All unrealistic, pie-in-the-sky aspirations aside, there are only going to be two viable candidates in this election: Obama and whoever the GOP runs. If you want to change anything, your next presidential opportunity is 2016. Show us what you can do.
