I don't think people are saying Romney is anywhere near perfect, yet if McCain is to be stopped from becoming the nominee he is the only option, and now is the time to be pragmatic.
Look, I don’t want McCain as the nominee, but for heaven’s sake, Romney is a walking disaster area, a pathological liar, and 100% sleaze who routinely employs bribery. If he wasn’t independently wealthy, I’d consider him a paid agent of the Democrat party. He was one of our worst Governors in the past 25 years, and after he buried the MA GOP went running off looking to be promoted. He isn’t fit to be a dog catcher. I’ve known him 14 years and the thought of him as President and leading the GOP is absolutely terrifying. He WANTS to destroy it and the Conservative movement.
I wholeheartedly agree. We have two choices now. Romney or McCain. Huckabee will NOT be the nominee. Romney, I believe, has changed his positions in the last few years after leaving the lala land of Mass. I think if I lived there, I would be a little warped too. McCain, I believe, has NOT changed. He is mean, vindictive, and has co-sponsored some of the most damaging bills to ever be enacted. McCain/Feingold is a disaster and has drastically limited our free speech rights. Bush was crazy for signing that bill. Then the McCain/Kennedy amnesty bill. Isn’t that enough to work with. We have only one choice. I wish we had another Ronald Reagan but we don’t.
