So right out of the chute, Romney will abuse executive power. Wonderful.

Look.

Obama granted “waivers” from day one.

If our side is intent to play paddy-cake while communists destroy America, we’re fools.

Yes. Fight back.

D*mn right.

So, when will you be joining the Obama campaign?

There is no longer even one primary candidate, opposing Romney. Pick a lane.

And thus the danger of RINOs is exposed with the fact that republicans don’t have the courage to oppose them.

Romney has since his minions went after Sarah Palin in 2008, shown no hesitation to attack. Whatever else he may be, he’s no shrinking violet.

He does so, through plausible deniability. Using others to do the mudslinging.

Romney is not McCain.

And he's consistently attacked conservatives ever since. He did however call off his super PAC the other day when it was attacking Obama which is more than he did for any of his primary opponents.

*Ponders*

So.......let me get this straight......you think giving waivers to everyone to free themselves of a program that few want is the same as giving waivers to only your political allies as a pay back.

Tyranny, it's all tyranny, and it's all the same.

*rolls eyes*

You know, I don't care for Mitt as our candidate (understatement), but giving credit when it's due instead of being a knee jerk nay sayer might be smart.

I don’t believe Romney is a democrat.

I believe he acted like a democrat in MA, because his job was to represent as Governor the state, which is overwhelmingly democrat.

Romney’s certainly not a Tea Party person, but he could turn out to be far more conservative than many here seem to have convinced themselves.

He’s far more conservative than Obama.

Romney is on his way to enacting the All American Care Pack he came up with in the first place, so mark it down. He likes it. And, the GOPE likes Romney.

Enabling, entrenching and deepening a Progressive Republican Party, known as the socialist GOPE, with a socialist, self proclaimed Progressive is the task for a so called conservative voter for which I have no use.

It’s Alamo time the way I see it, and Obama 2.0 is a small price to pay to explode the GOPE if it craters all the posers in it and gives us four years to restore the Constitution and defend a dying Republic.

If Newt was the nominee, Hussein would be back on his political heels and bleeding from his nose and ears.

Instead, and rather than explain how he will press Congress to repeal Obamacare, we listen to the severe conservative threaten to abuse his office.

This tyranny thing is starting to grow roots. It must be ripped out.

And I’m not persuaded to vote for Romney. Write in and toss the fear filled kool aide. That way, the GOPE won’t pull this stunt again. Putting up a self proclaimed Progressive on a Republican ticket. You should be outraged.

Obama 2.0 is a small price to pay to explode the GOPE who are pushing you to the Left and you’re willing to go there?

Not a chance, here.

Romney can be thanked on bended knee for usurping religious liberty with his cram down in Massachusetts, which placed the Catholic Church institutions in the same box we’re all in today, only under Romney’s student, Obama.

Myth blew right past the Constitution in MA and will have no compunction to change his style in the big chair. He did it there and the GOPE liked it.

They will back him in anything and everything, but gave Obama not a single vote. I’m unafraid of Obama 2.0 if we can reclaim our party from the Romney Lefties running it.

You do for the USA like you did for Utah and the Olympics and maybe your name will go down in Reagan’s and Ike. I will work to give you a Tea Party Congress that will hold your Mormon Feet to the fire and bring back America! Thats my Vow.

If my Cubs win about 100 more games this year, they'll be the world's champions.

Newt is not going to be the nominee, and he's not going to have anything on his desk. Actually, he has endorsed Romney.

At some point we have to deal with reality, even if it's not our ideal.

We’re all very frustrated.

Store up that frustration. Keep it. Focus on it.

Strengthen your resolve, and become more determined than ever. Focus.

Then the day after Obama loses the election, turn all that frustration on opposing Romney at every single turn.

Just please don’t to that, until Obama is defeated. Please.

Thanks.

I get that 7, but I can promise you Romney is going global starting with Keystone, so we can brace ourselves for Massachusetts 2.0. We have been taken and the clock is running. The GOPE have lent Obama not a single vote.

That will change when the self proclaimed Progressive is in the WH. They will skate right along side with the guy they brung’ to the dance.

They lose this one and they are imploded.

REBELLION IS HARD, and it’s scary, but FREEDOM ISN’T FREE.

Which is just what? Romney took $600 million from taxpayers money to bail out the Olympics, refused the Boy Scouts. Really? Utah and they are operating wonderfully in what field and what does Romney have to do with Utah anyway?

How about this remember what Romney did in Mass.

Next January this forum will be forced to deal with another pubbie President unanchored in the philosophy of our Framers.

While Romney drifts about looking for soundbites with which to govern, he will find polite, timid support from the GOP elite placeholders in Congress, but full tilt disdain from conservatives, and 24/7 broadsides from a psychotic media.

Like a non-swimmer tossed into the deep end of the pool he will thrash about and grasp at anything to keep his Presidency afloat, much like Hussein is doing now.

It does not bode well for our republic. But, as you say, we must deal with reality.

Thank you, my FRiend.

But, this doesn’t end until we end it.

It starts where the trouble started —> GOPE. They go, or the nation goes. This is the year that counts.

These guys would continue to oppose Obama at every turn,
lending him a not a single vote, and politically they would be imploded.

Voting down ticket and voting against the top of the ticket here.
