We often hear people say "hold your nose and select the lesser of the two evils". However, if we look at the bigger picture, which is really the lesser evil of the two?
1. Obama for 4 more years and teach the GOP the lesson that they evidently didn't learn in 2008.
2. Romney for 8 years, assuming he doesn't hand it back to the Democrats in 2016.
Yeah right. Losing will teach the Republicans a lesson like in GHWB, Dole, McCain. Four more years of Obama is more than I can stand.
The alternative would be for more people to hold their nose and vote for your candidate. Romney received more votes than anyone else. I held my nose in 2008. This time I won’t have to. Romney was not my first choice but he’ll do a marvelous job.
If romney loses, the rino establishment republicans will say he was to conservative. You can’t fix stupid.
As I remember (and my memory goes back at least as far as 2008), that was the theory for voting for Obama rather than McCain. Didn’t work out so well for the country.
Just my first $.02
I cant stomach the thought of our troops saluting Obama for another four years. Also, Obama wont have another election to ‘keep him in check’, no one to please but his handlers.
At least with the other guy he will have to pander for four years so there is a minute chance of manipulating right.
Obama is the evil of two lessers.
Plus, hoping the GOP learns is like any other hoping for change. We were told four years ago Obama winning would ‘teach’ the GOP a lesson.
Very original post.
I remember in 2008 I was called a McCain shill and told if McCain won then it would be worse than 0bama and if 0bama won we would get the next Reagan in 2012.
I say to Ye... Better vote for ROMNEY, or OBAMA will end anything economically, and politically, that is against the state as soon as term 2 starts....
Not to mention the MSM whose smug satisfaction would drive me absolutely nuts.
conservatives may never vote again
Thanks, I won't ever vote for a liberal, and that includes Romney. ABL Anyone but liberals.
Let’s teach the country a lesson. Obama gets 4 more years and the chance to appoint another Sotomayor or Kagan. Yeah, that’ll teach ‘em (us).
Scalia - 76
Kennedy - 75
Ginsburg - 79
Breyer - 73
Who knows what kind of person Romney would appoint...
...but I know exactly what kind of person Obama would appoint.
I’d say there is a good chance at least one justice will be appointed in the next 4 years...meaning O has the possibility of leaving his marxist imprint on a third of the court.
I remember Bush put up a woman who was not qualified...and through pressure, she asked not to be considered. I hold out hope that the same could happen with a Romney nominee....no such chances with O.
It is a far greater thing we do (losing to a punk commie who wants to gut the last of the Republic) then allowing a conservative with tried and true principles of economics to become President. Someone who may actually restore America to its once greatness. Hang em high!
There is no such thing as the ‘lesser of two evils’. Both are still evil.
Oh, when I say, “conservative” I didn’t mean the Rommunist who hopes to be the next King either.
I say then none of the above. If you don’t vote for the person who represents your views, your views will be unknown and you will have wasted your vote.
