We do know that Romney has consistently slapped at the fingers of conservatism, to me, one of the most despicable was to spend months on a national campaign to convince the American public that Ronald Reagan was “adamantly pro-choice” on abortion.

I'm going to make a contribution to Brown.

What's more I'm going to make contribution to a lot of conservative and Republicans across the country who are in positions to WIN.

I get all kinds of solicitations from the National Republican Party, the State Republican Party and the like.

I'm not going to give any more money to these organizations. I will back individual candidates like Brown in Massachusetts or Schiff in Connecticut. I don't know who will be the candidate in Nevada but I will support the Republican who can knock off Harry Reid. My district is so overwhelmingly Democratic, that giving money to the Republican is just about a waste. It's throwing good money after bad.

I want my money to go to the areas that will do the most good. Backing a Republican to run against someone like Nancy Pelosi is a waste. She is in a lunatic district and you could run a corpse with a D beside it against a liberal Republican and the corpse would win.

Yes, I agree about Whitman. If she didn't have the street smarts to identify Van Jones for the clown he was, then she doesn't have the street smarts to be governor. I would not have been fooled by this snake oil salesman for a microsecond.

Don't get me wrong. Meg Whitman is very talented in Business. She could not have achieved what she has without business talent and savvy. However I don't think her skill set is right for being governor. Yes, I will support her against any Democrat if that what it comes down to.

I REPEAT, IF SHE CAN BE FOOLED BY A CLOWN LIKE VAN JONES, SHE DOESN'T HAVE THE STREET SMARTS TO BE GOVERNOR.

am well balanced thank you.

The way some people “go off” on any statement that Gov. Romney utters makes it is pretty apparent that they are driven by hate or fear. Tirades against him are often linked to the 2012 presidential election so my guess that many are afraid of him.... afraid he may be the candidate in 2012.

Seems that many feel that their candidate can’t win unless Romney is destroyed... doesn’t say much about their candidate. Hate or fear lead to poor decisions and improper actions, don’t be ruled by either.

Don't think so. Romney has shown reprehensible behavior.
Poor sport, backstabber Romney cannot be trusted.

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


Erick Erickson, who organized Operation Leper, said:
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


Who benefits most from Sanford meltdown? Californian (that's right) Mitt Romney


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"


Poor sport spoiler Romney attacks other GOP candidates:

Novak: "Fred Thompson drop-out rumors traced to Romney campaign"

Said Novak: "The rumors were traced in part to Mitt Romney's campaign,
trying to stir up strife between McCain and Thompson
."

"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

[Romney: A Mistake for McCain, 7/23/2008, Dick Morris]



At the end of the day, when the RomneyBOT squeeling is peeled away:

"A political party cannot be all things to all people.
It must represent certain fundamental beliefs
 which must not be compromised to political expediency
or simply to swell its numbers."

--  President Ronald Reagan


"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn’t make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan

I am so down with you on that statement!

I consider myself a strong, ideological conservative. But I have always been willing to give Gov. Romney a hearing. I look at his life and I see an honorable and capable man who has lived by conservative values. I also admire his intelligence and business experience. I have hardly been able to get to the point of looking at whether he has been sufficiently conservative or is an opportunistic RINO, as his enemies claim. (I can't stand John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and other such RINOs.)

But I always find myself defending Romney without ever getting around to giving his record a hard look. And that is because those against him are so nasty and hysterical.

Perhaps some despise him for purely legitimate ideological reasons. But most conservatives who are fiercely against him are motivated, I'm afraid, by religious bigotry. I have no patience with it.

Your posts say otherwise.

Hate or fear lead to poor decisions and improper actions, don’t be ruled by either.

WRONG! I hate deception, I hate a big government 'control' mindset, I hate imposters who thing a "R" after their name gives them credence. You, obviously, don't fear commie rule, and detest anyone that exposes a potential candidate that supports gov't 'control'.

don’t be ruled by either

And you are! Fear of your RINO Mitt not being accepted as a candidate.

Who gives a crap what Romney thinks? His career is toast and he keeps grandstanding on the backs of others. This is how he has always operated and most voters now have him figured out.

His support is like cyanide; Extremely deadly even in small quantities.

Excellent point.

I really don't think Romney would make a good president. Generally speaking CEOs and technicians don't, because they don't think politically. That goes for Romney as well: he doesn't have what it takes to prevail in politics.

But so many people jump from not agreeing with Romney on all the issues or not wanting to vote for him to extremes of abuse and vilification that it's hard not to defend someone who's been a capable administator and a decent family man.

Nowadays, people don't look at the good and bad points of public figures and come to a balanced assessment of their character and value. They shoot first and ask questions later. If one assumes that the two sides of the political aisle are at total war, the next step is to attack those in one's own party one isn't 100% in agreement with.

Is Romeny new out of the box or has he been around enough to see his RINO stance?

We aren't looking to work for him nor are we a part of his family.

It seems you have no problem w/his government 'control' healthcare - well, here's some news for you - the MAJORITY of Americans do! Let him take 'care/control' of his company and his family - Americans don't need his 'care/control' mentality nor his climate change deception.

Just beginning to realize that the incoherent and undisciplined opposition to it is just as dangerous and will be the reason that it succeeds..... if it does.

Your apparent greatest concern (Romney) is far from the greatest, and most immediate, threat.

Do you have any idea how many people with your viewpoint have come and gone here on Free Republic? And not gone willingly in many instances? It's not unique and it doesn't add anything positive to the Conservative movement at all.

Your attribution of bigoted motives to Romney opposition is bullshit. Pure and simple.

Argue the facts or leave. I believe I speak for a majority of FReepers when I say that there is no place for this kind of narrow-minded, ad hominem paranoia around here.

OK, I've made two mistakes, mistakes I should know better not to make. Upon re-reading your previous posts I see that you agree with RedStateDefender and not me.

It's not at all clear what my project is as I've just informed you that this conversation rears its ugly head, people get zotted and it dies down for awhile. That's why I pinged JimRob. He doesn't support Romney -for extremely sound, non-bigoted reasons that have been posted on this forum ad nauseum - and I only jumped in because this casual casting of aspersions on other FReepers is not acceptable behavior.

Read the rules of the forum if you have any questions. I won't argue this any further.

A word to to wise is generally sufficient. We'll see how it goes with you.

"I consider myself a strong, ideological conservative. But I have always been willing to give Gov. Romney a hearing. I look at his life and I see an honorable and capable man who has lived by conservative values."

Fair enough, but speaking as a Mass. resident, I can tell you that Romney is a political "bull in a china shop". His lack of real support for Kerry Healey's gubernatorial bid helped give us what I refer to as David Axelrod's Beta test - AKA Deval Patrick.

And then there is of course "Romneycare". Another Massachusetts Beta test. Geez, why do I even still live here?.. Anyway, my point was supposed to be that however well intentioned Mitt's support is, I would feel more comfortable without it.

I have seen/heard a few honest bigots admit that their hostility was, at least in part, religious. I believe I acknowledged that other conservatives oppose him strictly on ideological grounds. If you are not guilty there is no need to squeal so loud.

You are making those anti conservative remarks in defense of Mitt Romney, on the world’s leading conservative forum, and you are directing them at the conservatives (freepers) that you are in conversation with. No one is more anti Romney that freerepublic are they? You just signed up recently, so I assume you checked out our politics before wanting to join, did you think that maybe you can fix us, and make us see Romney in a different light?

Mitt may be a RINO, but I’ll at least give him credit for not being so enthusiastic about p*ssing on conservatives like Juan McCain, his mini-me Lindsey Graham and Huckabee.

Comparing him to McPain, Graham and Huckabee ain't saying much or defending him.

Well, with so many good freepers predicting my demise, I suppose I might as well just carry my "fat ass" on out the door, which I will be careful not to let hit me in the butt, yada yada, yada yada.

FR has a lot of activity, although nothing like it once had. But, as with all large crowds (although I definitely would not call it a "big tent," hee hee hee) you get a mix of people. To those with whom I have passed some pleasant chatter, I thank you and wish you the best. Ditto for those who disagreed with me but did not find it necessary to be disagreeable.

Unfortunately, the tone of the site is set by the owner who is a nasty, ill-educated, megalomaniacal piece of work. If so many of his fawning twits think I am about to get zotted, they are probably right. And I just hate it when the SOB pulls the plug on you and you don't even know it...I don't want to give him the sexual pleasure of power tripping me tonight. I know his record, I know that he is spittingly hostile to Romney and I know he is a brownshirt who has no taste for open discussion. Heck, he will even zot you for an opinion that used to be his own before he switched sides and started zotting in the other direction.

But, yes, you moronic groupies are right...he'd probably zot me when he got around to it. Just the thought of it reminds me that I don't really care to be here waiting until he feels the urge to use his great power.

Too bad this site has gone so far downhill. My apologies to you good people here who have not quite given up on it yet. It's really not for me.

Buh-bye now! ~~scurrying out so that darn door doesn't hit me back there~~

Oh, don't put yourself down like that...

Not all of us are morons and the site only goes downhill when people like you arrive and urge people to support RINO's and cause disruptions.

Since it is "he" who might feel the urge, I'll ping the owner to provide him the opportunity...

Bye now and take care.

He knows how much I hate evil/deception as much as He does. You seem to have a problem with that.

Unfortunately, the tone of the site is set by the owner who is a nasty, ill-educated, megalomaniacal piece of work. If so many of his fawning twits think I am about to get zotted, they are probably right. And I just hate it when the SOB pulls the plug on you and you don't even know it...I don't want to give him the sexual pleasure of power tripping me tonight. I know his record, I know that he is spittingly hostile to Romney and I know he is a brownshirt who has no taste for open discussion. Heck, he will even zot you for an opinion that used to be his own before he switched sides and started zotting in the other direction.

For a new sign up, you don't seem very enthusiastic about freerepublic.
