Romney out. Congratulations Freepers on ensuring there was no conservative in the race. (Vanity)

Posted on 02/07/2008 9:51:12 AM PST by mbraynard

You rallied behind someone who never had their heart in the race and was never a leader in their life (Thompson) or never had a chance in hell (Hunter). What is needed more than anything to win the WH is a drive to do the spade work necessary to get there. So by denying Romney victory in IA and NH and SC, and splitting the field, you now have probably the worst enemy of all - someone the Wonderful Mr. Jim Robinson never saw fit to put a 'truth file' on.

So, nice work.

Nonsense.

There hasn’t been a conservative in the race since Fred quit.

Fred was never in the race....I really don’t think he ever had any intention of winning....sometimes I feel he was just in there as a favor to McCain to split the conservative vote....I agree with the orinial poster.

Oh puhleeeaze! Dammit Jim! You cause him to remove himself from the race, NOT his lack of money (or support).

You supported a flip flopping liberal MA governor who only discovered the term ‘conservative’ in the last 2 years, and you are lecturing those who stood with guys that had some genuine bona fides?

Cmon.

I don’t know who to point fingers at.

I believe McCain’s “personal story” - his brave and selfless military service - was one of the only things that many voters knew about him, and that that was enough.

For some, even a reincarnated Ronald Reagan would have had a hard time beating that.

I’m just calling it like it is, in my opinion.

I STILL WON'T SUPPORT McCAIN!!!

Conservatives care about the United States so much ...
that they're willing to DEFEAT McCain to save the nation!!!

McCain needs to wake up and smell the "VILE"!!!

"Bipartisanship" Is A Dirty Word; and RUSH: "We want to defeat them"

THIS IS WAR!!!

With Myth Romney in the race there still wasn’t a conservative, but there was a better liar.

Congratulations Freepers on ensuring there was no conservative in the race.

You actually believe that the couple thousand active FreeRepublic posters have that kind of influence?

Sorry, but the vast majority of voters haven't even heard of FreeRepublic and of those with some knowledge, many consider posters here as right wing cult kooks.

Thank you Jim and all freepers. McAmnesty is now the nominee!

Without the help of McCain supporters -such as Thompson and Huckabee - joining McCain and attacking only Romney and spreading DailyKos BS material in Internet forums, you enabled McAmnesty.

Fred Thompson’s legacy to the world: Campaign-Finance Reform and Nomination of John McAmnesty.

Why? For telling the truth? This forum never took seriously the threat from McCain. McCain is a much bigger threat to conservatism and liberty than Guiliani. To paraphrase Churchill: “We may have killed the wrong b*st*rd”.

Fred had all the right positions, and he'd stand around all day with his hands in his pockets in defense of them.

I loved the guy, but if by some miracle he'd been elected he would have been right on every issue and gotten rolled like a fat kid at a soccer match.

Some of us have been doing our part.

Romney plays the statesman in the end. Not too many of those left. If McCain chooses someone else for VP, then he’s committing political suicide.

Garbage!

Mitt, and you MittWits, should have been smart enough to know from the Git-Go that the Mormon thing would be too steep of a hill for the base to climb.

Also, Mitt should have waited until his conservative bona-fides were made more secure with time. His position switches on the issues so soon to this election made it impossible to engender trust in the electorate that he really meant what he was saying.

Go Rant somewhere else!

I understand your emotional pain, but it sure isn’t based on logic.

You rallied behind someone who never had their heart in the race and was never a leader in their life (Thompson) or never had a chance in hell (Hunter) conservatives. What is needed more than anything was needed six months ago to win the WH is was a drive to do the spade work necessary to get there. So by denying Romney victory in IA and NH and SC, and splitting the field, you now have probably the worst enemy of all - someone the Wonderful Mr. Jim Robinson never saw fit to put a 'truth file' on.

So, nice work.

Freepers had nothing to do with this. A mind numbed zombie voting pubic who takes it’s voting ques from TV and radio talking head morons did. You can also thank DC insiders all the way up the political ladder for once again manipulating an election. But Freepers had nothing to do with this.
