[vanity] I refuse to have Romney forced down my throat.
vanity | 12Oct11 | jagusafr

Posted on 10/12/2011 3:56:25 PM PDT by jagusafr

Does anybody else notice the HUGE push among the media elites (Rove, Krauthammer, et al) for Romney, now that Cain is showing powerful gains? I have to say, the more they say Romney's a foregone conclusion, the deeper my heels dig in against him. Not because he's a Mormon, but because he WANTS it too much - has been running since the last election, and I WON'T have "them" dictate who our nominee will be.

Colonel, USAFR

It shows how the conservatives who are on Fox News are moderates.

We need a patriot not a politician to fix the country. While I believe Mitt loves the country I think he wants to be liked too much. The country must come first.

Yup They pushed him. Then they tried Pawlenty. Then Daniels. Now back to Romney. He is their tool. They are going to do anything they can to override the popular will.

Make sure you vote in the primaries.

And remember: Anybody but Obama.

Talk is cheap. I guess you’ll take whatever it is that comes down the ‘pike. Right now, we at FR are not through calling each other names for supporting this candidate or that one.

That’s fine and I agree, HOWEVER...

What is up with the fact that last time and this time, the republican party is having a very hard time nominating more conservative candidates?

I mean it’s the republicans, supposedly you need to be conservative to get nominated.

I don’t know the answer but republicans do get to vote in their primaries and if they keep nominating McCain, Romney I think it’s the fault of conservatives not getting out and voting.

This Romney push was expected and predicted.

It was forestalled a bit when Perry entered the race but now that he has failed to fulfill expectations the press is on.

I think the idea is to prevent Cain (or anyone else) from building up a solid following.

I don’t think it will work. Romney’s support is still stuck at 25% where it has been for four years.

The time is now for Herman Cain and others to step up their games. Cain in particular should broaden his message and talk about how he is an across-the-board, lifelong conservative.

Romney is a loser and the nation does not need his type of leadership. He is a RINO at best and maybe even a liberal.

Our local Tea Party sent out an email today with this youtube link about Mitt’s liberal tendancies.

Has this youtube been widely distributed?

Thank you. A vote for the RINO Romney simply puts a Marxist lite in the WH. Why on earth would a conservative vote for that?

We won’t and that makes Romney unelectable. Ditto Perry.

I understand the Romney push coming from the RINO-led and Demrat-controlled GOP. I do not understand this willingness among too many conservatives to repeat the RINO mistake again. Is it really so hard to understand the GOP is not an opposition party to the demrats. It hasn’t been since Reagan left office.

It is inconceivable the national GOP can be retaken by conservatives. It’s demrat controllers will not allow it. The opposition void will be filled just as sure as vacuums tend to get filled. You all can scream in rage about third parties not being viable. But just as surely as God made little green apples that vacuum will be filled.

That is reality. Time we all faced it rather than pretend otherwise.

I agree - I have never seen such a rush to anoint a candidate, nor have I ever seen a “frontrunner” who routinely comes in second, third or worse in so many polls.

The Republican establishment needs to understand that they can lose support from the right if they go too far. But they seem hell-bent on making that mistake. Maybe they just want to go through the motions, and would rather lose the election than risk any kind of REAL reform.

It’s sad.

No but maybe it’s because I don’t see them much on TV but I do see Cain not being willing to go after Romney. I believe Cain will never go after him as he wants something from Romney.

No, I’ll likely write in a candidate. I know, I know, “the principle of the thing” is rarely a winning strategy (as I tell my clients frequently), but sometimes you just have to do what’s right in your heart even though you know it’s tilting at windmills.

I think a big part of the problem is that many attractive and eligible conservatives decided not to run. Maybe they know it’s a losing battle?

I don’t know. But if Republicans, in the face of fierce opposition to Obamacare, nominate the one person who adopted essentially the same plan while governor, it will be hard for me to escape the conclusion that either they don’t want to win or don’t deserve to win.

It’s very sad.

OMG!!!
He lost to John McCain 4 years ago. He can't beat Obama.
70% of Republicans want someone else.
Cain is the only one who is a conservative and will win.

I wish I could buy the explanations, but plenty of people ran, and I don’t think the ones who stayed out were world beaters. Who knows, maybe you are right. I think the average voter, even the average republican, pays way less attention to this than we do.

"Anybody but Obama"

I have to disagree. for two reasons.

1. The people have to have a clear choice between a socialist and a conservative the only way to do that is to let the socialist party win if a socialist is nominated to what supposed to be the conservative party.

2. Obama is a complete idiot that has no idea what he is doing even know he hates this country he don't know how to destroy it. Others around him might but if they don't have control of both house and senate they will not do much damage if he was reelected (gag).

We can not let socialists run what should be the conservative party. We just can't do it.
