Which acronym? ... WAS="Wait and See"? NOTA="None of the Above"? (vanity)
Here | 7-31-2012 | fishtank

Posted on 07/31/2012 8:24:25 AM PDT by fishtank

Here's the dilemma:

Talk radio and other parts of the 'conservative' media started defending Mitt Rmoney several weeks ago. IIRC, the first 'defense' was actually made to protect Ann Romney from the "stay-at-home" charge.

So, Rush and Co. are now promoting Rmoney, after they first dismissed him, then they defended him.

I will vote for neither Rmoney or Obama.

I will "wait and see" (WAS). I will vote "none of the above" (NOTA).

If Rmoney wins

AND

governs as a conservative for four years,

THEN

I'll vote to re-elect him in 2016.

Not before.

(Another Freeper mentioned this exact strategy a few weeks ago. I don't remember who it is (apologies), but if they come forward and identify themselves, they'll be known as the author of the WAS ("wait and see") policy.

Pretty funny, that’s what the DU/Kos crowd call Romney, Rmoney.

Could it be you have issues with him being rich? Could it be you have issues with capitalism?

Could it be... oh, nevermind, you probably wouldn’t understand anyway.

We should be about referring to Ann Romney as the un-b!tch, and leave it at that.

Great strategy! If you don’t vote against Obama you might as well vote for him. If you don’t vote against Obama it means you support him and his policies. There is no ‘present’ vote in November. If Romney ends up being the nominee and FReepers won’t vote for him it is basically giving it to obama. My Mom called this ‘cutting off your nose to spite your face’. We will survive 4 years of Romney. We likely won’t survive 4 more of Mr. Executive Order Obama.

The choice, whether palatable or not, is simple:

Romney or 4 more years of Obama.

You know what 3.5 years of Obama have wrought.

It isn’t rocket science [considering that Obama has gutted NASA, but that’s another issue].

If enough folks are WAS or NOTA, then the U.S. as we know it is DOA.

—If enough folks are WAS or NOTA, then the U.S. as we know it is DOA.—

My personal take is that it is no matter who wins. The reason is the electorate. NOBODY advocating what it would take to actually get us out of this mess would have a snoball’s chance in hell of being elected, much less get congress to go along with it.

We’re in this to the bitter end, and it will be bitter indeed.

Consider all the alternatives to Romney and Obama.

Oops. There aren’t any.

Oh, there will be some fringe people out there, but none with an even remote chance of even getting their names known to maybe 5% of the actual voters. Despite the theme behind “Political Animals”, there is not even a slim chance of Herself, the Cold and Joyless, substituting for Obama on the Democrat ticket, and nobody, NOBODY, is going to displace Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee at this late date, except in the remote possibility that he may, for one reason or another, be unable to actively carry on a campaign.

Even if people had their druthers at this point, what would those druthers be?

If you don't vote for Beelzebub, you're voting for Lucifer.

Got it.

Bow down before the one you serve.
You're going to get what you deserve.
Totally got it...

Total screwed up thinking. So, you know with out a doubt what Obama has brought to the table and that a second term promises to be worse. Yet, instead of voting for another person who is bound to be better than this reigning clown, you will sit back “and see”. Pure stupidity.

If I don’t vote for Romney,

then I won’t be voting for 000’s agenda.

There’s no real difference in their TRACK RECORDS.

Excellent and sums up almost the entire situation. I would add supreme court nominations someway.
