CNN: Conservative group to target Romney
CNN Political Ticker ^ | 10/05/2011 | Paul Steinhauser

Posted on 10/05/2011 12:23:09 PM PDT by Impeach98

First on CNN: Conservative group to target Romney

"If you support the principles of the Republican Party platform, as I do, then it's important that we make sure the GOP nominates someone who has supported and fought for those principles. On almost every single important issue facing America today, Mitt Romney has fought against conservatives and Republicans. He's been a liberal on fiscal issues, a liberal on social issues, and a liberal on national security issues," says Lloyd Marcus, Chairman of Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama, in a statement to CNN.

Sometimes the truth hurts.

Notice the words “conservative group targets”.

CNN means to inflame against the group.

But all the group is doing - like Truman saying “I just tell the truth and they think it’s H*** - is to tell the truth about Mitt Romney.

Free Republic is in all the way. If abortionist, gay rights pushing, gun-grabbing, socialist healthcare mandating, big government, constitution trampling, lying statist Mitt Romney somehow becomes the best the GOP has to offer, then it’s just proof that the GOP is no longer a conservative party and therefore I’m no longer a Republican. I oppose Romney as much and maybe even more than I oppose Obama. Because Romney will turn the GOP into just another progressive party. There will be no opposition party left.

If Romney’s the one, then FR will be in 100% anti-Romney mode.

FUMR!!

Go TEA Party!!

Jim:

The key is for conservatives to coalesce around a candidate.

That was our mistake in 2008 and we may repeat that again in 2012.

Also don’t buy anything that Romney is dishing out on Perry on illegal immigration. Romney supported sanctuary cities in MA and a MA DREAM act.

Here are my four top choices:

1) Sarah Palin
2) Michele Bachmann
3) Herman Cain
4) Rick Perry

I will absolutely not support or vote for Mitt Romney and, in fact, will actively campaign against him.

Which is why I fear the states are moving up their primaries before Romney drops in the polls.

Many FReepers would argue that Perry is no better than Romney. Many FReepers would argue that Cain is another Romney. Those views have been posted here by longtime FReepers in nearly every thread.

So, even FReepers are not coalescing around a single candidate and the clock is running out.

Hi Jim!

We were concerned seeing how many in the media and political establishment were trying to push this "Romney is inevitable" argument to preempt the primaries before they even take place and just declare Romney the winner.

So we decided that we could play our role by 'knocking Romney out of the primaries - as a serious contender,' and hopefully ensure a principled conservative is the nominee.

Anything that can take out the liberal Republicans Ricardo Perry and Romney I welcome. Cain is on fire thank God. Palin may just announce. Bachmann and Santorum are doing fantastic during debates. It is becoming the best primary season ever....conservatives dominating should always be the case!!!!

Everyone has to know that playing the race card is wrong. That’s why Cain can’t be in any Perry supporter’s list any longer.

If Cain played the race card on Sarah, everyone would understand where we are coming from.

Do you seriously think he wouldnt do it?

Why don't we have a conservative nominee select Cain or Rubio as their running mate?

Why must it be Mitt Romney? Did you see our video documenting how Romney has fought conservatives on almost every single major issue?

He wasn't someone who was wobbily. He has repeatedly fought against Republicans and conservatives. He does not deserve our support, and more to the point, he has no business believing he should be the nominee for the Republican Party - he should pick another party that more closely matches his own.

You will get no argument from me. I despise Romney. He is a politician, just like Clinton. He will do and say anything for a vote.

I just see Romney getting very few attacks while the better candidates beat each other up and get attacked by conservatives.

Jim,
In my humble opinion, I would replace Perry with Santorum. I just can’t get past the fact that Perry is so much in the pocket of Mexico including having meeting with the Fox and others from Mexico and the bennies to illegals. Well it looks as if Perry is crash and burning on his own.

Sincerely,
Bob

You missed my point. Its a very good possibility that Romney will go with either Cain or Rubio.

Cain has been helping Romney since the last election. His guy Mitt didn’t get it so I wonder who he wound up voting for?

We have seen Cain’s colors in playing the race card - that shows he still has a brotherhood connection which is stronger than a conservativ connection.

Not sure why folks here can’t see that.

Yup. There is something wrong with each and every one of our candidates. Jesus Christ is not running. But Satan is. His earthly name is Obama and his co-conspirator is ultra-progressive Mitt Romney. Abortion, gay marriage, gun-control, socialism, progressiveism, etc, are pure evil and antithetical to liberty and will be the death of our constitutional Republic if not stopped. And, I’ll remind you, that Romney tried to run to the left of Ted Kennedy on these very issues. Mitt Romney is totally evil. And he’ll look you right in the eye and lie about it. He’s not even a lesser evil.

It’s anyone but Obama or Romney.

The GOP establishment believes that there is a large block of voters between democrats and republicans.

They believe that they need to moderate their position (read: drift leftwards) to earn the votes of the middle types. This is the GOP strategy for maximizing votes.

I think the GOP establishment needs to know that there is a large block of voters that is to the right of the Republican party. I’m in that block and I cannot allow the GOP to drift leftward anymore.

I held my nose and voted for McCain. Others held their nose while supporting Ahhnold for California Governor. Both were failures.

The GOP establishment assumes that those on the right will simply go-along. We need to change that perception.

- - - - - <=Line in the sand

I’m going nuclear.

I will not vote for anyone to the left of George W. Bush. In the present crop of candidates, that includes Romney and Huntsman. I will hold my nose and vote for Paul/Perry/Ginrich. I will vote with two hands if the GOP nominee is Cain/Bachmann/Santorum/Palin. But I will not vote for Romney or Huntsman.

You got that GOP?

The candidate has got to be a real, non establishment conservative. Good polling news this week for Herman Cain. I am not saying yet if this is the person...but someone like him is what this Country needs.

Jim has it right, if the GOP nominates the wrong candidate the conservatives will be flipping mad this year. The GOP has one last chance to get it right.

Cain did not play the race card. Clearly, you do not know what "playing the race card" means.

If Cain said 'Perry doesn't like my 9-9-9 Plan because I am black' then THAT is playing the race card.

Cain hates liberal racism and is proud to be a self-made man from a poor family. He has never played the race card in all his years.

It is vile and dishonest for you to claim Cain uses the race card to his advantage.

If you support Perry, fine. Perry was the victim of a liberal smear. Your anger is misplaced.

“That Romney who is running for President is a scary fellow. Oh, and have a nice day”

I don’t think Cain played the race card.

He said that continuing to go to a place that featured a rocked inscribed “Niggerhead” was insensitive. It kinda was.

Cain didn’t say it was racist, and he didn’t say Perry was racist. Then he dropped it entirely.

If anything, it shows that Perry is stupid for not considering that frequenting a place called “Niggerhead” could be politically problematic in the future. It would be one thing if it happened in the 50’s or 60’s. This was happening in the 80’s.

Cain has been around the block. He knows he has to pull the “insensitive” word out whenever the “N’ word is used otherwise he is labeled an Uncle Tom. He did it purposely even though he knows Perry is not a racist.

He started it and he should come out and repudiate what is being said about Rick Perry right now. Oh no, he’s moved on and left Perry twisting in the wind.

He would do the same if it were Palin.

You guys dont mind because you don’t like Perry
