Amusing, because I really wonder what makes you think you are qualified to pass judgment on someone of Romneys caliber.

Oh brother. Romney’s caliber? ROFL. His caliber is smaller than a .22 LR.
And not all uninsured are “free riders”. Some people would rather pay their own way rather than give more money to an insurance company then they will use in medical care.
You just swoon over Romney because he is Mormon.
“Some people would rather pay their own way rather than give more money to an insurance company then they will use in medical care.”
Until they hit a wall in their Honda. Then it’s the tax payers that have to pay for the jaws of life and 47 reconstructive surgeries.
BTW you never answered this question.
but JimRob sure is.
No one is saying Jim isn’t a smart guy and that he has a right to establish the parameters and tone on his own website. The question was what makes Jim more qualified to establish the litmus test and definition for conservatism (outside his website) then say you or anyone else?
“Did you initially support Romney because he was mormon, and then find through investigation that his policies were not worthy of your support?”
I grew up in the Michigan mormon congregation where the Romneys worshipped and know the family personally. They are really great people and it was this family/religious connection that was the tie for me. I supported his campaign financially and voted for him at our Caucus here in Colorado early in the campaign.
When he pulled out I moved to Ron Paul and then reluctantly to McCain when he chose Palin as his running mate.
I won’t say I am Anti Romney, I’m more Pro Palin.
But my politics are a mixed bag overall.
I am a Neo Con when it comes to National Security.
A Ron Paul Revolutionary when it comes to the Economy.
A Christian of the Mormon persuasion when it comes to morals,
And a Libertarian on just about every other political and social issue.
I LOVE Sarah Palin and want to see her as our first female commander in chief.
She is the ultimate expression of my personal politics.
Well said, E. “we the people” are qualified to judge Mitt’s fitness for office and he was found wanting.
Mitt and his supporters want to force us into compromising the principles this country was founded on.
I cannot fathom WHY someone would claim to be a conservative and support Mitt. Must be because of his religion.
“If this is an example of what we have to depend on to stand in the breach and hold the line then our prospects are dismal.”
Dude, I was at the front line with my ass hanging in the wind for 8 years and I can tell you I spent well over half my time fighting with those in the same foxhole. I gigantic waste of effort.
Conservatives are their own worst enemy.
Disagreement is one part of political freedom, another is the responsibility to the goals and ideals the nation is based on.
You point blank told another American that they are not significant enough to pass judgment on one so accomplished as Romney.
Yet over 200 years ago, in many cases the rednecks of the day passed judgment on the most royal of royalty....
And you still don’t get it, you don’t get how elitist that very simple sentence and the concept that backs it is.
Until you do, you are only furthering the case against Mitt, not for him.
Elitism is for the left.

And most of the people making those kinds of statements couldnt begin to match Mitts personal qualifications, achievements, or the upright way in which he has lived his life.

Wow. You have done it again. This sound just like the time you said that you would bet that no FReepers had a “solid academic career” and were taken to task on it.
Now, none of us could begin to “match Mitt’s qualifications.”
Your elitism is showing.
Careful Jim......I think those sentiments qualify you as a “Domestic Extremist” per the definitions found here:
ping to #1350. Remember that conversation?
What is it with you and this “elitism” hang up?
I’m just sittin here stubbornly clinging to my guns and religion.
You just swoon over Romney because he is Mormon.
LL, you need swoon no more over Romney...
There is a mormon president in the White House...
President Obama is a mormon...
His Momma was dead dunked last June 2008...
As mormons invented families are forever, Obama is a mormon now also...

When a person makes up stories like I own a gun, lifetime hunter, watched dad march with MLK, was just out of school when church ended racism in 1978, and so on it shows an incredible lack of character,

Mormons like Romney call this “Lying for the Lord”. To be fair not all mormons do this, but Romney appears to.
You can say or do anything as long as it furthers your cause or the cause of “the Church”. It is one of the reasons I do not trust him. Here is another:
One of the temple oaths (the Law of Consecration):
You and each of you covenant and promise before God, angels, and these witnesses at this altar, that you do accept the law of consecration as contained in this, the book of Doctrine and Covenants [he displays the book], in that you do consecrate yourselves, your time, talents, and everything with which the Lord has blessed you, or with which he may bless you, to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, for the building up of the kingdom of God on the earth and for the establishment of Zion.
Hes smarter, more successful, has too much class to say the things you say.

Who ARE you, Mitt’s wife?
Because you couldnt live up to the standards, you hate everybody who can.

Many who could live up to the standards (like me) still left. I don’t hate you, I feel sorry for you
"Suddenly, a heavyset man wearing a bright-orange cap entered the room. Mr. Romney, he called out. Eric OrffIm a hunter.
It was a potentially awkward moment. Earlier this year, Romney claimed that hed been a hunter pretty much all my life. A few days later, he said in a statement, Ive hunted small game numerous times. Four days after that, Romney told W. Gardner Selby, of the Austin American-Statesman, Any description of my being a hunter is an overstatement of capability.
Still, he couldnt resist. Youre a hunter? he said to Orff. Well, same here. Good to see ya.
