He and his fellow operatives will be back. After all, it’s 2010 now.

I'm an ethusiastic DeMint supporter (and voter!)

So now that it is 2009 and the presidential race is over, DeMint doesn't mind having Mitt help him raise money. I guess DeMint's really a RINO, right guys?

I actually had to go look back because I'm not sure of what he specifically said back in MI. From what it looks like, he suggested he would aid the companies with their healthcare/pension costs (though not clear what aid means - and would it require bankruptcy) and would either help the companies with research to get to mileage requirements or eliminate the requirements.

I can't really call that a flip flop.

Well on this thread it is Romney that you are trying to defend, why don’t you elaborate on why you support Mitt Romney?

Cozza pointed to similarities in Whitman’s campaign. “It seems like her consultants are taking her down the middle of the road,” he said. Republicans “want her to come out stronger on fiscal issues.”

Citing a scheduling conflict, Whitman recently declined an invitation from the Republican Party of Los Angeles County Central Committee to speak at a candidates forum Jan. 14. Her primary opponents -- entrepreneur and former state insurance commissioner Steve Poizner (R) and former Rep. Tom Campbell (R) – are set to attend.

Cozza said Whitman is missing an opportunity to court some of the party’s conservative activists. “Most of the people that are active and that are traveling and attending our forums are the conservative people, the tea party people, the patriots,” he said, adding there are some 1.1 million Republicans in the county. “I think it’s a missed opportunity [for her],” he said.

The Whitman campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

Whitman has run a steady stream of radio ads since September but she has not been a ubiquitous presence at grass-roots events, Cozza said.

there are some people here who, if they were hanging by their fingertips, would slap at Gov. Romney if he offered them his hand.

Take your promoting of RINO Mitt somewhere else - otherwise YOU will be next. You got that, Petey? Your FOUR months here gave you enough time to learn what conservatism is.

Bluestateredman (RomneyBOT):
"Scott Brown can best be described as a Mitt Romney clone."

What utter nonsense and libel.
Romney is a hallucinating, carpetbagging, backstabbing fascist
who imposed RomneyCARE death panels AND gay marriage
without a vote and against the Mass.Constitution.

Scott Brown is a conservative, a normal person.

Mr. RedStateDefender, in the wake of your ... pyrrhic posting, I'd like to share an axiomatic truth about the Free Republic community.  No, I know you are there, loitering in the dissipating cloud of electronic detritus of your ZOT, looking plaintively for responses to your FR suicide by Viking Kitty. I can hear you breathing.... 

Associate paulycy's irate response was neither unjustified or irrational.  Free Republic has always been a front line activist outfit; an arena in the War of Ideas.  The sellout of the American Conservative community by a RINO infested party leadership over recent years, Mitt Romney one of the biggest examples of that useless GOP status quo, has certainly ignited a zealous counter-revolution in the party base. Any other FReeper worth their bandwidth would have responded likewise to your baseless assertions of religious bigotry directed against Romney.

Your IP has been logged by the Free Republic Administrators. We're usually willing to wipe the slate clean; give you a fresh start. All that we normally ask in return is your cooperation with community standards.

But because your deranged, slanderous posting directed against Jim Robinson was so outside the bounds of anything even remotely sane or logical and you are clearly a waste of precious bandwidth, The Source, Admin Moderator has decided you will be deleted.

Good-bye.

I don't know who you think you are to speak for "a majority of freepers" but I find your insulting and intimidating remarks contemptible. I am aware that the management of this site dislikes Romney, but I am not aware that sincere conservatives are required to be in lockstep with that opinion. I think you are a little carried away with your righteous certainty, my friend. I really don't think I need to give it another thought.

Do you *know* what RomneyCare is, and why it’s failed? Please inform yourself before you accuse others of bigotry. Most Conservatives oppose Romney because he’s a RINO.

Knew what conservatism was long ago, wouldn't learn it, or much of anything else from you. Your perception is as flawed as your demeanor is foul.

I am here to see other viewpoints (those more worthwhile than yours) and offer my views as well, am not trying to be provocative your pomposity just sees differing opinions as such .

GO, seek out those Mitt supporting RINOs, might work on your identification skills and learn to accurately determine the passage of time.

...those against [Romney] are so nasty and hysterical.

I see by your sign-up date that you may be a newbie. I have often thanked Jim Robinson for his practice of allowing posts from Romney supporters on Free Republic, and I say it because I know that the behavior of those supporters speaks volumes about Romney.

If you have lurked or read in-depth over the years and if you have done independent checking and research on your own in tandem from sources not related to Free Republic -- you will see that Romney supporters:

1. LIE outright often and brazenly about Rush Limbaugh's take on Romney. Again and again and again, they claim that Limbaugh "endorsed" and/or "supported" him, when the solid, bottom line is that Rush has utterly DECLINED to do any such thing. Worth noting: during the primary campaign, Romney's own website clipped a quote from Michael Reagan praising Romney with the obvious purpose of leading readers to believe that Romney had won the endorsement of Michael Reagan. Guess what I did? I looked up the full text of Michael Reagan's piece from which the quote was taken. The very next line in the piece was "The same can be said of Rudy Giuliani." In other words, Reagan himself had made it very clear in the piece that he was NOT intending it as an endorsement of Romney. Romney's ethical bar is so very low that he DELIBERATELY MISLEAD those visiting his website.

2. LIE outright about Ronald Reagan, describing his take on abortion as "adamantly pro choice," which is a falsehood on its face.

3. Claim that items indicting Romney are "forgeries," and utterly failing to provide any evidence, let alone proof, when asked.

4. Frequently attribute to "hate" and "religious bigotry" the solid, well-thought, documented reasons that many FReepers have for rejecting Romney and encouraging other Replicans to do the same. These Romney supporters refuse to argue facts -- instead they choose to sidestep reason and emotionally manipulate the discussion the way a child does its parent: "Mommy, you won't let me eat ice cream for dinner because you hate me!" Hate, dear, has nothing to do with MY solid and aggressive rejection of Romney -- except in that I hate big government nanny state politicians, and Romney is one.

For you to accuse Romney opponents on Free Republic of being "nasty and hysterical" indicates that you are very poorly read on the history of Romney supporters' arguments and behavior on Free Republic over the past three years.

If you WERE well read on the subject, and if you actually put your money where your mouth is and did your own online research (independent of Free Republic) on what Romney says in his speeches and in the articles he writes, you would see that indeed, there is considerable REASON (as opposed to "instinct") to reject Romney on the grounds that his political philosophy of bigger, more intrusive government is part of the problem. Please, dear, READ/LISTEN TO HIS COMPLETE SPEECHES/WRITINGS, not just the platitudes and soundbites, and you will discover in the details that his every proposed solution for perceived problems entails bigger government and more government intrusion. Please start investigating for yourself instead of just going by instinct when forming your opinion of Romney.

Conversely, while political debates were super-heated on Free Republic during the primaries and the election, ZERO OTHER CANDIDATES' SUPPORTERS, not those of Giuliani, not McCain, not Thompson, not Huckabee, not Palin -- NONE OF THEM, in all the years I've been reading Free Republic, have ever held a candle to Romney supporters in terms of deliberate distortion of the truth, downright lying, getting dirty and emotional and nasty with those who disagree, and using the Romney signature claim of "hate" (in other words, irrational emotion) being the reason thinking conservatives reject Romney.

Sadly, you are representative of many Republicans and conservatives who buy Romney's schtick -- the reason you buy the schtick is becuase YOU HAVE FAILED TO DO YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE in investigating Romney for yourself. It's so much easier to take him at his word, isn't it?

Here's a suggestion: if you're not going to do your own due diligence in investigating fully the candidates, then PLEASE DON'T VOTE because you won't know what you're voting for.
