Uh, with you it goes deeper than that:

Im as conservative as they come and I like him.

So don't hit us with the usual 'vote for Romney or vote for Obama crap. You like Romney, you said so yourself. At least be honest with your pimping.
Of course, picking Romney would take Obamacare off the table as a campaign issue, just as picking McCain took amnesty off the table in 2008. But don't let the details get in the way of your weak-kneed Romney swooning (what IS it about good hair that makes people depart their senses?)
You're not going to sway anybody here with that spinny "argument."
Romney is as RINO as they come and what this country needs now is a conservative.
You talk as though Romney has won the nomination, fulfilling your RINO dreams.
Romeny cannot beat Obama - he's too much like him.
I'll say it again...
Our country needs a conservative to help us get out of the mess we're in.
Romney does not qualify.
He'll try, if his past is any indication. But it's still just lipstick on a pig.
I can AFFORD to buy more stuff. I choose not to. I have other priorities.
"Whereas most superheroes' secret identities (Bruce Wayne, Peter Parker) are their true identities
--the people they were before their parents were murdered or they were bitten by radioactive spiders
or exposed to gamma rays or what have you--Superman was born Superman.
It's Clark Kent that is the invented alias, the pose, the "costume."
And in the way Superman plays Kent--weak, self-doubting, cowardly--
we can see what he thinks of the human race overall.
It occurred to me that the same is true of Mitt Romney's desperate,
if never terribly persuasive, impersonation of a conservative Republican."
[from "Mitt Romney as Tarantino's Superman", New Republic]
Proven-Failed Governor Mitt Romney should be NOWHERE near government in the USA.
"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

Alex Beam: In truth, Ronald Reagan
and Mitt Romney have as much in common
as Cardinal OMalley and Conan OBrien.
Deservedly or not, Reagan earned a reputation for constancy.
Once he turned against communism, he opposed it big-time.
. And our former governor? Inconstancy, thy name is Mitt!
A womans right to choose? Yes! No! Yes!
Are we in Massachusetts? Yes! Are we in Iowa? No!
Are we on TV? Whatever!
no, no, no.... a thousand times no...no more of romney... or gingrich, or huckabee, or anyone named bush...i will write in daffy duck before voting for anyone with those last names ( there will be others added to the list soon )
I think the party has had enough of his BS. I sure as hell don’t want him running again.
If he wins the Republican primaries fair and square I will vote for him. I didn’t like it when the liberal Republicans sat out the Goldwater campaign and I can’t see sitting out this one. Anyone who believes Romney would not be an improvement over Obama needs to be examined.
Of course I would. I was just using the "stay home" analogy to demonstrate how conservatives feel about Romney.
I don't think he's going to get the nominaiton anyway.
A marginal improvement at best. Romeny is just another big-government liberal.
It was his type who enabled us to get in the mess we're in now.
We don't need another one of those.
I held my nose and voted for McCain in '08. I will not do that again.
There are good conservative prospects out there and we need to get one of them at the top of that ticket.
“The signs are that Mitt Romney is running for president.”
Aparently the author is the last living person to get the memo.
True. Romney has been running for two years now. I saw Pat Buchannan this morning, and he said that Romney’s developed organization will take early contests (New Hampshire and Iowa) giving him the momentum to be unbeatable.
He does not know when to quit! I might vote for him when he apologizes for that horrendous growth of government in healthcare which he came up with. I am not waiting for that though!
A little rhyme.
I will NOT vote for Romney.
I will not vote for Huckabee or McCain.
Put up a real Republican
or live with Obama again.
Mitchovitch Comney is never going to get around his socialist Mittcare travesty. He is going to choke on it, big time.
Love the rhyme. :)
New Hampshire will feel wanted again.
Here we go again. If Romney is the nominee, are we going to sit it out and let obunghole put the last nail in the coffin of this country? We cannot survive this POS another 4 years. Think Supreme Court appointees just for starters. Mit for brains Romney is not my choice by any stretch, but I will not sit 2012 out and watch the Marxists win. And win they will. The MSM will announce the final defeat of Conservatism and obunghole will have his mandate.
