Posted on 04/24/2012 7:07:05 PM PDT by Reality_News
Especially MSNBC and the liberal baffoons on FOX. How many times did we hear, But Romney can never take in more than 25% of the vote? What an assinine thing to boast on live TV! There were 8 or 9 of them running at one time, did anyone expect any candidate to get 50% from the start? We had about 5 or 6 great candidates from the start. But most of us had a gut feeling it was going to be Romney in the end. Now those clowns on MSNBC can be more identified with the 7 dwarfs.
Romney is a liberal buffoon......and a gun grabbing socialist.
Obama is celebrating.
Where did they find this _ucker?! I mean, when I started paying attention, there were 8 GOP candidates, and this particular one looked like the weakest of them all, and yes, I do remember Ron Paul. Heck, he didn’t even have the best hair. Now what?
Obama will beat liberal Mittens like an unfaithful muslim goat.
Romney? I won’t be voting for him.
It occurs to me that the Republican primary field is like the Beatles; the best of them are gone.
Now THAT is funny.
Good post. A lot of folks here need to get a clue, buy a vowel, wake up and smell the coffee, etc.
There were 8 Beatles? Who knew?!
You are kidding right?
Now that the MSM is announcing that Romney is the nominee and the primary is over, he can get more than 50% of those who bother to show up/ BIG F’n WHOOP.
This is probably the worst candidate the GOP could have nominated. He garners zero enthusiasm.
I’ll be voting for whomever the GOP nominee turns out to be.
I can hear the November whine already: “You uncompromising conservatives made Romney lose!”
They wanted to face Romney. They wanted to face a candidate with no contrast to depress the conservative base and to utilize the power of incumbency.
The fact is because Romney and Obama have the same positions ( based upon records) on socialized healthcare, gun control, global warming, cap & trade, Planned Parenthood, gay marriage, taxes (except that Romney defines the “rich” $50k lower than Obama), minimum wage, student loans, etc., Romney will not be able effectively attack Obama on the issues.
Obama will just say...”well Mr. Governor, much like my position you supported....”
Romney’s only area of attack is the economy. Unfortunately the MSM will spin the numbers in the best possible light. I also think that’s the weakest argument Romney could make.
The GOP nominated the Architect of socialized medicine in America....even though that was one issue they could have taken Zero to task over.
Romney loses in a fashion that makes Mondale look like a world champion.
They have know that Romney would be the GOPe candidate for years probably. They created Occupy Wall Street for that very reason. Guess who worked on WALL STREET? Geez... I dunno...
The left has designed their strategy for the past couple of years all around Mitt Romney. The whitest of the white, liberal to be untrusted by conservatives, Mormon to be untrusted by envangelicals (don’t worry the MSM will make sure to get the envangelicals worried, or at least they will dang well try).
Mittens will keep saying things like “I’m not concerned about the very poor” and “I like firing people” and “I like mandates, mandates work” until he has become the biggest joke of a candidate since Mondale or Dan Quayle.
Conservatives are not going to be any more enthusiastic about Romney in November than they are now. As a matter when he starts flipping back to the liberal side on big issues, his support will probably shrink.
and he will flip back. Do not doubt me on that.
He is the worst possible candidate because he will happily follow the script written by the left in his role as designated loser.
You're wrong. There is not a groundswell of support for Romney. I voted today. The population here is 7,500, roughly, and we have 2 poling places. At 5 pm, 46 people had voted. 46! People are not excited about Romney. They will not turn out in droves to elect him.
Romney wasnt close to my first choice, but does anyone want another 4 years of chicago criminals running the country? alot of people will probably move to canada or south america if O’Hitler gets another 4 years.
For all of you Gingrich and Sanatorum lovers, were you the 2 and 1 percent who wanted him this time last year? Are you saying in April 2011 these two were your guys!?!?! I have Gingrich’s books, I think he is probably the smartest policy guy in the last 15 years, however he was never a viable candidate to win the primary. As conservative as Gingrich appears now, he changed stripes by 1996 and started playing to the media and to compromise. Sanatorum is what he is, hardly a die hard conservative. As I have repeated numerous times, I am not a Romney fan , nor did I vote or support him in the primaries. However he is by far better for this country then four more years of Obama. Again, if all you bashers truly want the best for America, the choice, while painful to you, is definitely Romney. Remember , as whacked out as Obama has been to date, he still had to run for re-election, turn this joker loose without worrying about anything but what he wants and we may truly never recover.
I'm taking the advice of Sarah, Mark and Rush: “Anybody But Obama.”
I will be supporting donations to true conservative congress and senate candidates. That way if the communist 0bama or socialist rommney wins, they will be shut down like 1 kilo of exlax were force fed to them on the end of a gay protrusion.
Willie Mitty is practically running on his own alone
and he still cant get a large number of votes...
It’s Romney’s record that kept me from supporting him in the primary. My question is if/when Romney is officially nominated what is gained by continually hammering Romney vs trying to beat Obama. As I have stated many times here if Romney wins (and as bad of candidate as he is, Obama’s policies and decisions in office, and the economy are heavy baggage), it pretty much guarantees the senate and house. As a conservative we need to put pressure on these two institutions to keep Romney in check.
The problem you have is you paint anybody that is dealing with the facts and reality of the situation as a Romneybot and anti conservative, which is just ignorant and whiny on your part. By the way who was it u supported this time one year ago?
My answer is to deal with reality and vote for whomever the GOP nominee turns out to be. It looks more and more like Romney will be the nominee. As horrible as he might be, he's still better than Obama. With Romney (and majorities in the House and Senate) we have a chance at saving the country. with Obama, it's a done deal...we're finished! In the minds of some here, this choice to deal with reality merits the “Romneybot” tag.
You know what's sad, many FReepers joined Politico and other left-wing rags in their trashing of our candidates earlier on. And now some have the onions to sit here and bit*h about the choice we're left with. We're at least partly responsible for the place we're at right now.
Santorum was both my Congress Critter for 4 years and also my US Senator for 12 years. And I agree with you absolutely.
He was a Conservative at election time --- especially on social issues, but very 'flexible' the rest of the time -- especially on fiscal issues. He always did what he had to do to keep his seat. I was never particularly enamored with him. He was 'suitable' at best and fortuniate that for those 16 years, the Democrats only ran left wing cream puffs against him. Once he ran against a supposidly 'pro-life' Democrat, (Bob Casey) he was toast.
As I have repeated numerous times, I am not a Romney fan , nor did I vote or support him in the primaries. However he is by far better for this country then four more years of Obama.
I agree 100%. But four more years of this crap we're going through my be the end of us. There my be no hope to recover our country.
We'll both catch a lot of flack for saying this on a red meat forum, but we really have no choice but Romney now. That's the facts.
I just pray that if elected, Romney can roll back some of the crap Obama has done to us and do something to clean out the leftists who have infected the Federal bureaucracies.
That's all I ask for now.
I will say this. Four years ago, I really had to hold my nose when voting for McCain. He was in Washington for far too long and thought that somehow Washington was the beginning and end of everything.
This November, I won't be holding my nose, but I won't be dancing either. I'll just cast my vote and say a little prayer that Romney does not have the Washington disease.
Same here. Beating Barack Hussein Obama in November trumps all for me. While not a real Romney fan, his speech tonight was downright inspirational. He was completely focused and is intent on keeping our Dear Leader on the defensive.
Oh, by the way, I hope he picks Newt as the VP.
