Posted on 01/18/2012 7:28:44 AM PST by Milagros
What would be the toughest sacrifice?
1) RonmeyCare issue?
2) Values / he's pro-abortion.
(3 Is his Mormonism is an issue by you?)
The chance to beat Obama.
Candidately speaking, if you are going to be a Surrender Monkey, just go away!
No more “Lessor of Two Evils”
I'm afraid Mutt's core principles may evolve yet again.
I recoil at all of the above, but most especially at any father that could countenance the murder of babies for any reason
Oh. that far? While most will vote FOR him for believing he could BEAT Obama.
Our liberty... as having Romney as the GOP candidate will assure the re-election of Obama who will then continue to trample on the Constitution and rule by decree.
The presidency. Even if he won, he'd pimp out on changing anything that this illegal alien did during the last 3 years.
And Hitlery will be able to use material from the stolen FBI files at the right moment to bury this democrat-in-republican clothing.
“Abandon all hope, ye who enter here”
That's a serious worry from my part too.
VOTE CTHULHU IN 2012!
Any hope of having a conservative president in the White House.
Ronmey or four more years of zero....
start hiding your guns - NOW!
Romney will lose to Obama, and by a very large margin.
The USA, with the rest of the world close behind, will experience a thousand years of darkness under a muslim/communist reign of terror.
We would give up the election because Obama would win a second term.
Honor and respect?
If Romney is the nominee then when Zero gets 4 more years it will be a good time to make aliyah I think.
kicking Obama out of office!
Am I the only one who’s tired of holding their nose when they go to vote? This is why the US has such a low voter turnout every election. We’re always stuck with 2nd or 3rd best.
Heavy Drinking. Because I’m really going to need
for the next 4 years of the Obama administration.
I didn’t like at all, his weak ‘lip service’ on Islamic Nuclear Genocidal Iran [to be looked upon as a “moderate” by CNN/BBC/PBS, etc.] VS Santorum/Gingrich daring ‘like it is’ tellers.
Sad, I agree.
No argument here.
We must not settle!
I would have to give up on the republican party
Well, since it would pretty much guarantee Comrade Zero’s reelection, I’d figure liberty would be gone and I’d be preparing for the brownshirts to take me to reeducation camp (and I’m only half kidding).
Don’t think of it as giving anything up. Think of it as a reason to vote good people into the house and senate and force Romney to be a good president.
The white house is the anvil and congress is the hammer.
A true conservative should never consider and should never actually vote for someone to the Left as Romney’s record shows he is.
The country - to 4 more years of Obama.
I am done with the GOP if Mitt is the nominee, they belong on the ash heap of history, may a new Party rise from its’ ashes.
Good question, and I know a lot of us have also been thinking
along these lines.
I don’t know how easy it is to predict that there are any “issues” that would be “sacrificed”, because Romney, by all accounts, will pay lip service to any and all issues he thinks will get him nominated, which means continuing to do well enough in all primaries to keep him in contention.
Early on, he said, with that urgent, nervous smile and that breathless delivery he has, that he was “A Tea Party Person”
because,like them, he “believed in smaller government”. That was supposed to be enough to snare the Tea Party vote without going through the process of the Tea Party promoting HIM (he was supposedly promoting THEM).
The worst thing about Romney (including all the things we know he’s already DONE, like RomneyCare) is that he creates no confidence in us that he even UNDERSTANDS the big picture
of the mess both Dems and RINOS have left us with, how and why it happened, and what kinds of things we have to address NOW to get us out of it.
He spouts nothing but the usual election cycle cliches about jobs, the economy,and making America great again, stuff I have heard my entire lifetime from EVERY challenger to an incumbent, Dem or Repub. He is so Establishment, and so totally lacking in visceral excitement, that it makes my teeth hurt just hearing and looking at him.
Like it or not, the ONLY one who keeps coming back strong, and ON TOP, showing enormous nerve and backbone, not to mention a dizzying and effortless command of issues , is
NEWT. I like him more every day,and look forward to saying more about him as time goes on.
Newt, for all his faults, is ,at least in this field of contenders, shaping up as both a mensch and a COLOSSUS.
Do you rhink it’s a possiblity there will be 4 parties in the near future?
* Conservatives (TeaParty, etc.)
* Liberals (Occupy, Obama-niacs, Carter-ists RonPaul-ists)
The first presidential election I’ve sat out since I was of voting age.
If “we” (who’s “we”, Kemosabe?) have to “settle” for Romney the Socialist, I will vote for whatever nonentity the Constitution Party pukes up.
we would give up spelling and grammar.
The fact that we settled on another DBM-selected candidate like Romney. And, IMO, if Romney gets the nomination, I think we will have a wishy-washy flip-flopper who will bow to the whims of the Democrats - and that's NOT what we want.
