Romney is not yet the nominee. He can be dropped right now. It is long overdue for the party big dogs to get with the idea that America is more important than the sensitive feelings of their boyfriend.

I live in VA and predict Zero holds it. Demographics favor a black democrat. He wins on race alone.

McDonnell would be a kiss of death for Romney in Virginia.

you can expect Romney to shoot past the 50% mark no matter who he picks for VP. we can assume he is going to wait and see what state he has to pick up to beat Obama.Too bad Rob Portman doesn’t shine like Rubio or Ryan. do any of you think he will choose Rob Portman?

No, it's not some sort of conspiracy, but I have proposed husbanding Conservative resources for Conservative and TEA Party candidates for the House and Senate and let you folks in Wisconsin work out your own dramaturgy with the Walker thing.

Your boy is close buds with Priebus and he's the guy that helped engineer the Romney thing.

Walker may be a great guy but he's part of that cabal. Deal with it on your own.

“What about Colorado? That’s an easier flip than Nevada.”

Nevada has been overwhelmingly infested by Californians flooding over the Sierra Nevada like a horde of locusts for 20 years. It may never recover.

Thank God most people are not like you.

I just wish I could come on one political thread without some morons bragging about how pure they are and how they are going to vote for the worst president we’ve ever had and are actually proud of it.

Pfffft.

I agree. If there is any way to drop Romney for a real conservative, it needs to be done.

The Republican Establishment is getting wake up calls from all over the country.

We must elect as many conservatives to Congress as possible. They and the people will then keep the republican president in line.

Whether Romney is super-liberal or not, do you want Obama to appoint one or two of the next Supreme Court Justices? How does “Justice Eric Holder” sound to you?

The RNC big dogs forget that we have a quite large black voting base in Virginia that can deliver a very high percentage turn out.

All statewide races can be and have been very narrowly decided. One slip up by a candidate can spell disaster ~ and that has happened from time to time. Craig Deeds was a good example of what happens when you are a Democrat who sounds too Conservative for average Democrat voters.

He lost big time.

The guy he ran against in the primary was the doufous who used to be the DNC head. He was white. He was defeated by that black voting base primarily because he was felt to be an outsider that the big dogs were trying to shove down their throats.

Romney has wired himself up for the exact same problem in Virginia. ALL the blacks will turn out ~ so it won't take much in the way of Conservative non-compliance with the big dogs to reveal that Romney has no base of support here outside the party Bourbon class.

Romney could very well lose the whole election because he and his little buddies showed their asses in Virginia.

Yup, we saw them ~ we don't like 'em. This'll be a reprise of the Democrat Gubernatorial Primary, only with Republicans.

Totally agree.

I think Romney will be a good president. He’ll work hard on the economy and he’s smart enough to surround himself with good people.

He’s a decent guy and has a much better chance of beating Obama than somebody like Santorum would have or even Newt.

I liked Newt but didja notice that everyone who served with him wasn’t that enthusiastic about him?

I think the Good Lord gave us Romney so we could get rid of Obama.

It's very difficult to control a President from the Congress ~ unless you just impeach and remove the guy.

Best to get the problem chil' out of the way BEFORE the Fall campaign.

The PEOPLE picked the candidate and they made a good choice based on what we had to choose from.

I can actually smell the stench of Romney hate when I log onto Free Republic. I know it only comes from a hopeless few but they are very vocal.

It’s old, old, old and smelly, smelly, smelly.

Think about your country people, and not your own petty prejudices.

“You are at risk of losing all your wealth.Say good-bye to the value of your home if Obama is elected and your kids will be 100K in debt at some point.”

Don’t have any wealth. Don’t own a home. Don’t have any kids. Don’t fear Obama trying to suspend elections, or stage a coup because I would either A. prevail in the ensuing civil war, or B. be killed by my Godless-communist enemies, and since I’m a Christian I need not fear B. You got anything else I should be afraid of?

0bama is an avowed ememy of the United States. I don’t even want to contemplate what he would do in another term.

Anyone who does anything in any way to help 0bama get another term is an enemy of our country.

“North Carolina. No contest”

Party registration (5/12/12) 43% Dem, 31% Rep, 25% Independent

Race of registered voters:
White 71.5%
Black 21.5%
Indian 0.8%
Hisp 1.4%
Other 4.8%

Sex of registered voters:
Male 45.5%
Fem 54.5%

Obama starts with 95% of the black vote or 20% of the total vote. Assuming he gets 25% of the white male vote or 13% of the total he needs at least 39% of the white female vote to win. In 2008 nationally Obama won 48% of the white female vote.

Romney will start with about 75% of the white male vote or 24.4% of total registered voters. He will need at least 62% of the white female vote to win.

The election in NC and nationally will come down to the white female vote plus ballot stuffing in urban areas.

Romney does not share my Christian values (see tag line) so he doesn’t get my vote. Neither does Hussein get my vote so don’t post to me that I’m voting for him. FR does not endorse Romney but you are a noobie (April, 2012) so maybe you don’t know this. You would have better luck on a definite pro-Romney website.

Listen closely altura.... some people have this thing called convictions that come from things called morals. I will never vote for a baby killing, gun controlling communist/socialist. There never has been a purity consideration. I am not perfect but I do have my convictions. You can vote for whomever you want no matter how badly it goes against your beliefs (if you have any). That is how it used to be in the formerly great united states of america. I bow to the obviously morally superior altura who is correct because he/she thought of it- so it must be true...

” - - - Romney is not yet the nominee. He can be dropped right now. It is long overdue for the party big dogs to get with the idea - - - .”

Continued accumulation of Primary delegates in the remaining State Primaries is the key to improving Paul’s chances of forcing the GOP-E to hold an OPEN Convention in Tampa.

Paul will then have completed his main task in this Primary: giving the delegates the freedom to DUMP ROMNEY!

My goal is to defeat the insanity of Keyensian Economics in “both” of our very sorry political parties THIS YEAR!

This can be accomplished by the Delegates choosing a stellar Dark Horse Nominee, such as R-Rep. West of Florida, to slaughter Obama in a November Landslide.

The key is to FORCE the GOP-E to allow for an OPEN Convention in Tampa. Without an OPEN Convention the SOS of INSANE Federal Spending will keep America on the same crowded track with Greece, and Kalifornia.

There are over 15, 000, 000, 000, 000 reasons why spending more money this year than was taken in during the previous year is an INSANE path to financial destruction.

Neither Obama or Romney have presented a plan to spend our Federal dollars in a non-insane manner.

For example, the GOP Elite have stood in line to endorse Romney, to endorse “The Ryan Budget,” and to compromise-away every opportunity to reduce Federal Spending.

I included the Ryan Budget, because Rep. Paul Ryan himself says that his “Budget” will balance in 30 YEARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW, I added those exclamation points, because both you and I know that Ryan’s budget will NEVER balance, and thus will never be a fact. The exclamation points are just for volume emphasis.

“You are traitors to your country and only loyal to your own petty prejudices.”

I can ignore some of the crap I read on FR, but your tripe is over the line.

Look at BOF’s profile page for crying out loud.... he’s a vet. You are a damn fool.

Tell me, are you also calling the owner of this site, also a vet, a “traitor to this country”????

I will NOT be voting for Romney. I am also a vet, and I DARE your sorry a$$ to call me a traitor.

You need to thank God that you can’t call some of us “traitors to our country” in person.

I thought you would like to assure Reality_News and altura how much you adore Romney like they do. In fact, I think JR would love to add his glowing remarks about Romney so I pinged him. This is just the finest exortation of Romney to the point of searching out states that might vote for him and giving this info. to Reality_News.

Then, un-reality news can give the info. to beloved Romney camp and get a medal. That is just swell.

Yuk.

You better put some Vagisil on that Nancy.

I voted for Newt in the primary but it looks like we're getting Romney. I didn't want him, but there he is. You might live in one of the states where you can throw away your vote, but I don't. Romney will need every vote he can get in the swing states. If this was between Romney and Kerry (who served in Viet Nam) it might not matter who wins, but Obama is infinitely the worst president we've ever had. Getting him out of office is imperative for our nations survival.

Go ahead and fight your battle, you better hope it doesn't cost us the war.

Another thing, I'm from Wisconsin. Walker is arguably the best and most principled governor in the nation. We need more like him and your comments are further indication that you are FOS.

This “hate Romney” is starting to smell like 3 day old fish.

Nobody hates Romney just his liberal ways. I know it is tough for you to understand having principles but it is NEVER popular to do the right thing. The GOPe which you support was warned that true conservatives would not vote for Romney WAY before the primary started. They and you ignored our threats. You can vote for your idol, but I won’t.

Wake up people. The GOPe chose Romney for this round. A disaster in the highest proportions. Next time it is going to be Bloomburg or Lindsey Graham. When do you guys get some principles??? Every election, the Republican GOP candidate gets more and more liberal and you guys eat it up big time. One day you need to grow up and say “STOP nominating the liberals”.
