Romney is spending millions of his own money, has put a hold on his life, so he could run for President on a platform that conservatives would drool over. That’s what he has done for us.
IN response, we have questioned his sincerity, doubted his motives, he has been attacked for making money, castigated for his faith, and ridiculed because he has changed his positions to the right ones.
I missed you on the previous thread where the rest of the “stay home and screw america” crowd was languishing about in their gloom and despair.
He should do NOTHING for us. It is not the job of politicians to do “STUFF” for people. I don’t vote for who does the most for me. I vote for who will get out of my way, hold the line socially and change the Constitution and the American Way the least.
A politician the does the least, from a Washington perspective anyway, probably is governing the best.
And yes, I am a former Thompson supporter going to vote for Romney. He’s the best of the worst out their and the one who, if he is nominated and is elected, owes something to conservatives, not Washington insiders and the plethora of lobbyists. Less than the others anyway.
Well, aren’t the dems glad he didn’t do that... they’ve got the whole game rigged in their favor.
Still with that false description of your relationship of 3 months trying to get him elected and 13+ years of stalking him.
Don’t be deceived by people who claim they “know” something.
This is really disgusting. I never knew this and I am a political junkie.
This story has been around for years. At one time it was said McCain was upset because he was going to “save” the senate and then Jeffords got the credit and the plumb assignments from the democrats.
I’m pretty much resigned to the GOP losing in ‘08 anyway. Romney or McCain makes no difference. Compared to the Dem debate tonight, the Reagan debate yesterday was absolutely pathetic. There was no energy in the crowd and the sniping between the candidates was ridiculous.
After eight years of Bush disappointment, this is their moment. Ours will come again in another eight years, perhaps.
I guess McCain decided it would be funnier to wait. Watch him switch parties if he wins the presidency.
Proof of my stalking him, asshat. Put up or shut up.
I will never vote for McCain. I believe on the domestic front we would be better off with Hillary Clinton. It would give Republicans something to unite against. If McCain gets elected there WILL BE AMNESTY and there will be a GREATER chance of National healthcare than there would be with Hillary. McCain does not say much about national healthcare but be assured, whatever legislation Teddy Kennedy wants to write McCain will accept.
Amen. (Just for informational purposes, IIRC, amen is ancient aramaic for “yes, I agree”.)
Imho, Romney does not “need” the US, but the US may need Romney. Watching the vultures picking at Romney reminds me of how rare it actually is that a decent, humble, viable American will actually subject themselves and their family to this bs.
It’s too bad he didn’t switch, like jumpin’ Jim Jeffords, he would have gone from maverick superstar to nobody overnight.
Romney decent ? Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha !!!! Tell that to the Mauck family. What a maroon !
Is John McCain a war hero ?
Served US Army 1958 - 1964 E5 SP-5
You’re probably right. But I guarantee you as bad as McCain is, we already know Romney is worse. He’ll have gay marriage, $50 abortions, liberal judges, socialized medicine and a dead national GOP within 4 years. The shamnesty will probably be a gimme, too.
McCain is a NIGHTMARE and UNFIT
to be the GOP nominee, and especially
to be CIC.
PLEASE let Romney include this
opportunist thought of lousy
betrayal in his commercials.
McCain-Kennedy was an attempt to totally destroy the GOP through numbers. It is clear to me now what this vengeful, spiteful man is up to.
What entitlement program are you on?
I should add to your excellent assessment that McCain also attempted to block amendments that would have denied Social Security benefits for work done illegally here in the US by those using fraudulent IDs to obtain said work.
Amnesty wasn’t enough for McCain. He wanted the whole treasure chest open.
Cindy McCain’s huge Budweiser huge distributorship has the deal to market Mexican Corona beer in the USA
Keep it simple and you’ll see John McCain in Keating Five deals thruout his whole taxpayer paid career
Look at Kerry & McCain on the Vietnam MIA-POW whitewash
Both made big financial deals with Vietnam Commies tied to their traitorous conspiracy
“Proof of my stalking him, asshat.”
I’m going to jump in here and declare that your posting history ought to be proof enough.
Don’t you think voters should be fully informed before casting their lots in the presidential primaries?
I’d watch your mouth, newbie. Exposing the agenda of a liberal isn’t stalking. But you seem to have mastered the art of spamming for a liberal candidate.
He disdains and almost mocks Romney’s money (which he earned) and being a businessman, but, his (her) wealth is surely not chopped chicken liver ..
McCain, the common man, criticizes Mitt Romney for having money, a cynical maneuver on his part. Mr. McCains considerable wealth can be attributed to his second wife Cindy who runs an investment portfolio worth an estimated $36.6 to $53.4 million and chairs the third largest distributor of Anheuser-Busch, Hensley, according, to Tim Middleton of TheStreet.com.
According to Nat Worden, also of TheStreet.com, John McCain is the 7th richest Senator in the United States Senate. Mr. McCain married Ms. Anheuser-Busch. His thirty to forty page financial report makes for an interesting read. Yeah, hes one of us. Now let me sell you some swamp land.
McCain’s wife controls family’s riches
The candidate’s spouse runs an investment portfolio of an estimated $36.6 million to $53.4 million and chairs one of the nation’s largest beer distributorships.
As for your Mauck family comment rendering Romney indecent...hmmm lets see, Romney appoints a Superior Court judge named Kathe M. Tuttman, who independently decides to allow the release this guy named Tavares whho had completed his 16 year sentence for murder and was elligible for release, despite the prosecutors wanting to hold him without bail for an alleged assault that occurred while he was still in prison. So Tavares skips on his parole officer, leaves Massachusetts and kills the Mauck couple in the state of Washington and Mitt Romney is to blame despite his having nothing to do with the judges decision and his public statement that it was a wrong decision and she should resign.
Yep, that makes Romney indecent in my book, lets boil him in oil and all vote for Benedict McQueeg instead.
A good butt kicking in ‘08, following the one we took in ‘06, might just be the only thing to cause us to rebuild the GOP or organize THE AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE PARTY.
nearly? how about abandoned.
Thus one of the dirtiest secrets of the Vietnam era - that the US government knowingly abandoned some 300 American POWs to the Laotian communists - was allowed to slip into the record with little to no national fuss.
This is the issue that has angered veterans who are aware of it, and one way or another, John McCain is going to have to face these allegations head on. He of course was in no position to know what transpired between negotiators in Paris and Washington in 1972 and 1973, but he certainly was in a position to take a strong stand on resolving the issue when he joined the POW-MIA select committee in 1991.
Were his actions above board and simply the result of hard cold facts about the war in Indochina? Or was there a "move ahead" mentality driven by a desire after the Russians left Vietnam to regain use of the ports we had constructed at Da Nang and Cam Ranh Bay?
By all means. I understand that Drudge is trying to compensate for the free pass that McCain gets from the media. This story is fair game, although common knowledge to anyone who follows the news.
The Gook comment “flashback” from earlier, though, was preposterous. I mean let’s pick our fights wisely, right?
Hunter is no conservative, he’s a “fair-trader.”
He should hvae done it. it would have been the only honest thing he has done in his entire political career.
Is Romney as mentally unstable as McCain? If not, he's better.
Maybe they think that they would have an easier time beating Romney.
I think it's time all the conservatives left the GOP. They don't want us, they don't think they need us (except for our ca$h), and we have no place in the party any more.
I can't vote for McCain, even to prevent a Hitlery or Osamabama, because I CANNOT SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM ON THE ISSUES THAT MATTER TO ME.
As someone else stated on this or another thread, at least Hillary stabs you in the front when you can see it coming. God knows what kind of dung McCain will start throwing around if he gets the office.
Good post Phil.
I don’t know WHY Americans cannot see this. It would be a f**king economic DISASTER.
"Way too many perverts and degenerates fell in love with Rudy Giuliani and either openly supported him (e.g., Ted Olsen, Steve Forbes) or climbed into the closet with him (e.g., Rush Limbaugh, Club for Growth, Sean Hannity and the others at Fox News)."Now let me get this straight...anyone who supported Rudy is a pervert and degenerate...interesting statement. So...how long have you been off your medication?
I don’t believe anyone here (or at least very many here) believes that Mitt Romney “is the Second Comint,” more like the best...or only...of a bad lot.
Let me clarify. What has Romney done for us conservatives?
Take as many posts as you need to list everything Mitt has accomplished for the conservative movement.
Well...why don’t we start with building a business and creating hundreds of jobs for the American people. That’s pretty much the most Conservative thing a person can do. How many jobs have you created?
