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.

I still have to vote.

And it’s still going to Mitt. Possibly in November as well.

Let the record reflect that Freeper strategy didn’t work. You may not like to hear it, but that’s what happened.

I’m waiting to see who McCain nominates for VP before jumping to a third party. If he screws it up, though, I’ll be rooting for Ron Paul to go libertarian.

Romney knows how to talk like a conservative.

If it weren’t for his record of allowing gay marriage in Massachussetts, his pseudo-socialized health care plan, his gun grabbing and tax increases ... he’s a real Ronald Reagan.

Conservatives lost when Thompson dropped out.

Romney was simply the lesser of evils.

Yes, let’s all start blaming each other. JUST what they want! Do you really think any thing about this election has anything to do with any of us? We didn’t even get to vote! The candidate was ‘selected, and it wasn’t by any of us, don’t you see that?

McCain was going nowhere, early on. It was a PRIMARY! Yes, ALL of us would have embraced Romney early on if we had known the media and GOP were going to push McCain at the end.

Hindsight is real easy to grab onto and blame others. Why didn’t YOU warn us about McCain if you were so smart?

Like the others, Romney couldn’t seal the deal with voters. That’s the bottom line. He certainly spent enough to get his message out. People just didn’t bit either because of the flip-flopper stench or religious bigotry.

I think Jim and many Freepers had a hard time on what to do in this election. We were like ping pong balls going from Hunter to Fred and then to either huck or Mitt. You do bring up one good point though, why was there no mcCain truth file created?

One has to wonder if those who supported Mitt will now listen to him and stop Hill/Obamma from winning.

I’m up in the air.

I cannot speak about Iowa but to be fair NH allows anyone to vote in either primary by registering the same day so nonRepublicans tainted the race here. Fred and Hunter were nonfactors in this state.

No matter who is named VP, McCain is not right in the head. He can name Ann Coulter VP and I still would not vote for him. Third party is desperately needed.

Not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that Rep. would choose Crazy McCain. He is feeble, talks to himself, and his wife had to help him off the plane.

Something wrong with his face also. If it is cancer, then he is in really bad shape.

. . .and you are lecturing those who stood with guys that had some genuine bona fides?

Um, genuine bona fides? If that is true, then why are we now stuck with McLame? I hate to say this, but the field of GOP candidates sucked from beginning to end. Now we're faced with the choice of the worse possible scenerio (Hitlery or B. Hussein) or swalling a bitter pill and hoping the GOP minority can keep him reigned in. I pray for our future.

I haven’t had a choice to vote in a caucus and the candidate has been chosen for me. Freepers had nothing to do with this, the choice was manipulated by the MSM and the RINOS/Democrats from the start who outnumber Freepers by at least ten thousand to one. The system was played out by those that had the most money and were the most devious and ruthless. McCain and the Democrats fit the butcher’s bill.

There were no McCain truth files, because FReepers didn’t need them. McCain comes in miserably in every poll. Jim’s “McCain you miserable &%$#*@....” thread is legendary.

I see even without having a candidate to push down our throats you still can’t be gracious about the fact that we have the freedom to choose a different candidate than you want us to choose. You may have seen Romney as the perfect conservative but many others did not.

Romney’s speech was one of the best I have ever heard, it was very much Reaganesque. I am disappointed deeply but my respect for him has only grown. I will not be listening to Rush for a very long time. He could have helped Romney so much. No courage Rush. Your bully pulpit has too many conditions.
