I knew you would not answer the question on Newt.

For Paul:
Voted yes on banning federal health coverage, including abortions
Voted yes to ban funding to helathcare providers who dont report abortion numbers
Voted no on stimulus
Voted no on TARP
Voted no on auto bailouts
Voted no on making the Patriot Act permanent
Voted yes on ending race quotas in colleges
Voted no on enforcing anti-gay hate crimes
Voted no on sending funds to Mexico to fight drugs
Voted no on allowing courts to decide the God in the Pledge issue
Voted yes on barring EPA from regulating greenhouse gasses
Voted no on tax credits/incentives for green energy
Voted no on 3rd world debt relief
Voted no on restricting grassroots political committees

There are many more. What has Newt done in the past 15 years?

Romney is an antigun Stalinist in the end.

Anyone should be going there, win or lose, but Romney.

ROmney is cockblocking the situation.

"As much as FR hates Romney, he's gone after Obama roughly 1000 times more than McCain. McCain went out of his way to talk about how "we have nothing to fear from Obama"."

!!!! Are you serious? When and where has Romney gone after Obama? He is on record saying he will NOT go after him. Romney keeps talking about how Obama is a nice guy, just out of his league, and one of his Stepford sons said he likes Obama. Mitt won't even call Hussein a socialist. So, I don't know, I must have missed all the pit-bull attacks.....

>>Speaking of facts, have you read any facts about your boy Mitt?<<

What part of ABO don’t you get?
Mitt is not “my boy”. I was a Cain supporter, he dropped. I was a Newt supporter, where did that go? I could even get with Santorum but hellsbells, can’t YOU see what is going on?

I voted for Ross Perot and got stung. I’m not making that same mistake twice. Romney is an idiot, but not a Marxist, Muslim loving, live-baby killing, Israeli hating, tool of the Russians.

We have to hope this will be a free election. With a company linked to Obama counting the votes, it may be like the 1945-1946 elections in Eastern Europe where the Communist-led coalitions supposedly got the most votes.

If you live in a state like California or New York or Utah, one that will either certainly go for Obama or will certainly go for the Republican nominee, then it's fine to vote third party. If you're in a state that could go either way, it's important to remember the consequences of four more years of Obama.

Buchanan supporters in Florida in 2000 very nearly gave us Al Gore as President.

Why dont you run as a Republican, maybe for Congress, and try to change the party and bring it more conservative? That would be much more effective than running in a party no one knows about.

I worked for twenty years “fixing” the Republican Party.

Sorry, that jalopy ain’t going any further. All it’s good for is scrap.

Romney’s nomination is two broken axles and the drive train dropped all over the road.

Forget about it and move on.

If there are more than a 1,000X then list them...

otherwise hear this ...

Willie Mitty has not gone after Obama about his lack of eligibility...

Instead Willie Mitty has gone after the Americans who questioned the eligibility of Obama

mocking us and saying that Obama is OK and doesnt need to prove anything...

Thats probably because the elibility of his own Mexico born father was also once challenged...

Give me a pretend “he’s gone after Obama” I can probably come up with a kissy butt for each incident...

Willie Mitty is a weak wimp...

He was too chicken to debate the GOP candidates together or one on one...

Do you really thing your matinee idol Last Action Hero is going to lambast Obama with any truth ???

Really ???

Obama would flick him away like an annoying fly

and Willie Mitty knows it...

“I Vote Third Party” by Happy Rain

“Election day is behind oos and we have the usual doofus,
who could vote for such a fool, not me I'm too cool,
I didn't vote for the jerk nor the incumbent he usurped,
I went with candidate Nerdy along with Fred and Marty, we of the blameless herdy who vote another perty.
So the winner is pretty dim, thank God I didn't vote for him,
The other guy ain't no brighter, well I didn't vote for the blighter.
“Then who did you vote for you feckless ass?" they ask, “I voted third party so ah gets a pass!”

Sarah Palin is an obvious name, either as organizer or as candidate, but she certainly won’t say anything at this stage.

Sarah Palin will be supporting and campaigning for Romney. She has already said she is ABO. She has already very clearly said no to a 3rd party bid since she believes it would just help Hussein win a 2nd term. She has already said it is absolutely vital to defeat Obama. Her position on this is not a mystery. Some people may believe that makes her "establishment", but I think that is silly. Palin will support the Republican nominee just like Newt, Perry, Cain, Cheney, Rush, Levin, Hannity, Beck, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc. The idea that we should not support the GOP nominee is simply not held by the overwhelming majority of conservative leaders. 90%+ of conservatives are going to listen to and agree with Palin, Rush, Cheney, etc, and vote for Romney.

I think there’s a certain about of fraud in every election. There are plenty of crooked politicians and have always been.

However, they’ve been mostly fair on average. Its the message and the candidates which are manipulated. Thats why we are stuck with mittens, because certain power brokers decided its his turn.

Of course he’s been working on them non-stop for 6 years at least.

If BO gets elected again there will be no more fair elections. Look what is happening in Wisconsin for a preview.

Voting for Romney would violate my conscience, in exactly the same way that voting for Obama would do so.

And you’re asking me to make my conscience subject to your abject fear of Obama?

LOL...

Don’t bother.

Because my vote is a sacred franchise for which I am accountable to God, not to you.

And I’m not scared nearly as much of Obama as I am of a country full of “conservatives” with no principles left.

And that total abandonment of principle is the first fruits of the Romney candidacy, make no mistake about it. It’s already showing itself throughout the formerly grand old party, especially in Congress.
