Human Events Top 10 Rinos
1. Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R.I.)
Once approached by Democratic Leader Harry Reid to switch parties, Chafee has long supported liberal policies. He backs legal abortion, gay rights, federal-funded health care, strict environmental protections and a higher minimum wage. Opposes ANWR drilling. Also was the only Republican in Congress not to endorse the Presidents reelection and one of three who tried to gut Bushs tax cuts.
8. Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.)
Has said, I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. Supports civil unions and stringent gun laws. After visiting Houston, he criticized the citys aesthetics, saying, This is what happens when you dont have zoning.
Speaking of flip-flops, whenever someone tells me they have just found Jesus, I tell them, "Go to Hell you flip-flopper!"
I snorted when he boasted about not raising taxes, just fees.
Well you know the rest. Romney is NOT a conservative, nor Huckabee, nor "Give 'em Amnesty" McCain and certainly not Guilliani, even Thompson is NOT a conservative but closer to one.
Hunter is the most conservative and the poor guy can't get arrested!
Americans have turned the corner on conservatism and now embrace socialism lite until they get it full bore, I fear.
Everybody seems to want something that they haven't worked for or spent their own money for -- step in Nanny State to "fix the problem" and take away more of our freedoms.
I certainly don't have any desire to live in a Socialist State.
Culturally he has shown no signs of overt conservatism. He was never in the Marine Corps, wouldn’t know a revolver from an automatic. Never until running for President, about two years ago, wrote one conservative article or book or gave a speech.
And now, supposedly, he’s a conservative.
He needs to earn a bit. Take one for the Gipper. He’s not even on Conservative probation. He’s just a pledge that wants to run the Frat house. Ah, I don’t think so.
I hadn’t known about the Boy Scout thing. I’d like to see a cite for that, but if it’s true he’s pretty much off the table for me.
Of course, when it comes to the Illinois primary I’m voting for Fred if he hasn’t tanked, so I guess it doesn’t matter to me what a RINO Romney is.
Thanks for adding yet another Mittwitt club to an already bodacious arsenal.
The fact that anybody claiming to be in the least bit conservative can vote for this out and out fraud amazes me.
Somebody should print this article on a bill board in Charleston and Columbia this weekend.
it's too bad that Fred just cannot get anybody inspired....including me. What a bore. He is gonna lose to Huckabee in SC...... GO HUCKABEE!
I wouldn’t expect John Kerry’s GOP equal to be a real conservative. As a matter of fact, I don’t think Mitt Romney is real and genuine about anything other than saying whatever he needs to get elected.
To be or not to be, that is the question...Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous LIES I TELL ABOUT MY RECORD, Or to take UP VICIOUS ATTACK ADS against a sea of troubles FROM HUCK, FRED AND JOHN, And by opposing end them? To SEE MY CAMPAIGN die: to SEE IT sleep; No more; and by a sleep to say we end IT AFTER MICHIGAN. The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to MY OLD MAN'S BRAINWASHED LOINS, 'tis a consummation. Devoutly to be wish'd THAT MY COWARDICE DURING 'NAM WOULD To die, to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream AS IN MLK'S DREAM THAT I LIED ABOUT: ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come PERHAPS THAT MY DAD DID INDEED MARCH WITH MLK. When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause: there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life THEN GO OFF TO A PLANET NEAR ELOHIM; For who would bear the whips and scorns of SUCH FLIP-FLOPPING LIES, My oppressor's RIGHT, the proud men ARE BETTER THAN I, The pangs of despised LIES I HAVE TOD, the law's delay IN PROCECUTING THEM, The insolence of office I LIBERALLY HELD IN M'CHUSETTS and the spurns THAT CONSERVATIVES NO GIVE MET. That patient merit of the unworthy (ME) takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life OF FLIPS AND FLOPS, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have BROUGHT UPON OURSELVES! Than fly to others that we know not of: DUNCAN, FRED, MACAIN AND HUCK? Thus conscience OF ESCAPE TO PARIS does make cowards of ME; And thus the native hue of RUNNING FROM DUTY Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of ;OES, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry FROM ME, And lose the name of action. - Soft you now! The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons Be all my sins remember'd.
Mitt Romney is not a conservative.
Ditto. Insert ‘Captain of the obvious’ picture here.
Thanks for posting.
ten year political career? He was governor for only four years. Why isn’t Romney allowed to change his mind on abortion rights?
What I have been saying all along (nor do I trust this guy to be a core conservative on issues that matter if he gets the chance to be in the white house) becuase of his lack of stance on all kinds of issues. Mitt Romney is Kerryesque to me?? Is flip-flopping a MA thing? Maybe some of you can tell me..?
williard is not even close to being Conservative!
“Gun-grabbing, abortion, and gay rights” never even came up during the debate last night (luckily for Rudy and Mitt)!!
