Give me a break. Obama and the Dems are destroying the auto industry. That's not backbone, that's tyranny and Statism.

Mitt can run in 2012, but I will not support him.

Unsurprising, Mitt promised millions himself when campaining in Michigan.

He’s a socialist like the rest.

LOL. Where are our Romney-bot friends? I would have thought one of them might have posted this story.

Ditto. Why do these guys feel the need to suck up to Barak Mugabe and his angry wife?

Romney is another McCain. He will never be elected. Republicans can’t stand him, he’s a Socialist. Period!

If we lose the NY-20 seat, would that convince you that we are going nowhere?

Bush refused to cut spending, so look where we are. Which Republican talks about balancing the budget and living within our means? Nobody, so we are screwed. Just a bunch of cowards, waiting for the Commies to fail.

"I think he's expressing some backbone on this."

Sure he is. The "backbone" to assert unconstitutional powers over private industry in his blatant power grab.

Romney is a fool like so many others in the Republican Party.

We need to renounce the GOP. We have one party in DC now and both have bought into the NWO.

His dad was the eunuch governor of Michigan when I was a boy.

McCain wasn’t right on much, but he was right when he said the jobs would never come back in the auto industry, and Mitt like a fool sat there and promised they would.

I struggled with my conscience before accepting the need to vote for McCain. He has my respect and gratitude for his service.

I won't have to wrassle myself about Romney. As a businessman (his greatest political asset), he really should know better, and if he doesn't, he IS no different from 0bama.

I remember the days when many where saying he was the only true conservative running for President even though his record in Mass-a-tax-it was liberal and he was to the left of McCain on social issues before he began to run for President.

If you're a conservative, you're on FR AND you support Romney, ask yourself this question:

A stupid comment like this makes me glad Huckabee ran this idiot out of the race last year. And look at the state his Romney Care is in now. Massachusetts health care is a shambles, and its what we all can expect. Romney The Rino - no question about it.

In a month or so when the pro-ROmney threads appear here and some of us remind the posters he supported the GM takeover watch his syncophants call us all liars and more... same as they do when faced with his other failings like recommending to McCain and Bush that they accept TARP last year or his support for Cap n Trade before he was against Cap n Trade, etc..... when you have someone who changes their position like their socks it’s hard to keep track.

I really do believe anymore that they are are really in it together, The idiotic GOP is just playing shuck and jive with us.

Michael Steele is a joke and it seems he plans to do nothing. Where is everyone else? Each day we are treated to the next congresscritter who stabs us in the back.

It is us against them, so we best get that straight and think about what we do when it is us against them. Time is not lingering.

Sad. It's the only thing the Republicans can think of to remain relevant.

At least Romney hasn't gone as far as Arnold Schwarzenegger.....yet.

I hope the GOP is taking notes. They went all RINO in 2006 and got their asses beat. They went RINO again in 2008 and got their asses beat harder. I hope they’re taking note of the pattern.

A loss in NY-20 would prove how inept the party is in NY.

Actually, it would prove how liberal the NY electorate has become. The unfortunate thing is that the more freebies are handed out, the bigger the constituency for those freebies. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps - big government programs like these are the reasons conservatives have had difficulty getting traction in the past seventy years. It is possible to create huge deficits by cutting taxes, but not possible to eliminate those wasteful spending programs and prevent the looming fiscal disaster that is about to dawn upon us in the next decade or so. And that's before the addition of Ogabe's massive new social programs.

An extra-60-day do-over is not backbone. This is kick-the-can-down-the-road time on the D.C. Amateur Night from hell.

Republicans should be playing clips of democrats claiming GWB needs to hand GM cash because restructuring is out of the question. Obama is claiming that money is part of GWB deficit.
