Well we just have to see what American Conservative have to say about that. You know us great unwashed that know a slick used car salesman when we see one. Rommneycare was the template for Obamacare stick a fork in him he is done. I DON'T CARE how well he does in debates. Until the votes are cast and Romney will loose in New Hampshire to Herman Cain you heard/read it here first.

well, at least you’re a one note whiner. You never stop accusing those opposing mormonISM of being Mormon haters. Sandy, we don’t even hate you when you do this sick stuff. But you keep on accusing ... do you happen to know what satan was described as? ... Accuser of the brethren! Whome do you serve, Sandy, when you make such a specious accusation?

“VP could come from another party”
_____
That is the case in CA, for governor and lt. governor. It’s amusing sometimes, in that sometimes a governor can be afraid to go out of state, for fear the lt. gov. will pull a fast one in his absence. Can’t say it significantly helps CA, though.

If he's right, who do we write in of Bachmann, Cain, or Santorum? I'm not voting for Romney. Period. If the GOP is so stupid as to thumb their nose at We the People Tea Party types, I'll focus on congressional races and be sure to stymie Obama's marxist agenda at every turn of his second term.

Beck has been heading off the rails with is insane predictions based on nothing more than a thought that hits him at that moment.

I used to be a regular listener and bought some of his books and really thought he was a smart guy. Some of the time he is still sharp and on topic. But a lot of the time his radio show is an embarrassment. He and his sidekicks scream and laugh and carry on about the break down of society and the end of the country in an entirely irrational manor. I generally have to change to another station after just a few minutes. It irritates me because a lot of people think that Beck represents conservative views and he seems to be crazy.

I would like to believe he has been coerced into destroying his own reputation by malevolent leftists who have some how gotten to him. But it is far more likely that the adulation of his followers caused his narcissistic personality to short circuit.

Wow, did any of you go to the actual article and read it? That quote looks like it is totally taken out of context. Ive listen to GB radio show the last couple of weeks and he has said on numerous occasions that he would not vote for Romney and that he is just another GOP progressive. Looks like the progressive propaganda machine has worked its way into FR.

Rather than hold my nose yet again, I will write in Governor Palin. After the hatchet job the GOP insiders did on Christine O’Donnell, Sharron Angle and Joe Miller, they have no right to my vote.

Electing Romney (75 MPH) or reelecting 0bambi (100 MPH) - results are the same.

I think its possible for someone else to be the nominee other than Romney, but it won’t be easy. Of the 2200 plus GOP convention delegates, some 500 are not elected by the people.

They are party officials, GOP elected officials etc.

They’re almost all for Romney in my opinion with a few exceptions.

Early primaries are not winner take all delegates but later ones in more liberal GOP states are.

Cain will need to win early and win big to gain the momentum he needs to defeat Romney.

After 4 more years of the kenyan the next president will will not be a Republican, perhaps an actual conservative.

Fixed it. If Romney is the GOP nominee (which looks like the fix is in), he will lose and the Republican party will go the way of the Whigs. Devastated by the incompetent GOP, a third-party TEA PARTY will emerge in 2013, as conservatives will bolt from the dust bin of the former Republican party.

We all know that Romney will be the Nominee; that's been set up by the Establishment long ago.

IF Rubio shows up as the VP on the Ticket, then Rubio has sold out to the Establishment Republicans, and you can forget his Conservative rhetoric of the past.

The establishment won’t go down without a fight. They’ve got plenty of politicians, pundits, and talk radio hosts who will kick and scream every step of the way if We, the People try to walk away.

But if they shove Romney down our throats, I’m willing to do it. I could never vote for a politician who signed government-mandated health care into law. The letter before someone’s name doesn’t justify a vote!

In the Philippines, the VP and Prez slots are independent so even if the prez wins, the VP could come from another party and both makes each others lives miserable as hell. Wished that were true in US elections.

When the Constitution was written, the offices of President and Vice President were first and second place. so the scenario you talk about could easily happen under the system designed. I do not know history well enough to know that did or did not happen. But I'm pretty sure at least one early administration was not thrilled with their VP; John Adams VP was Thomas Jefferson.

Article 2 Section 1 "...(The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two persons, of whom one at least shall not lie an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; a quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two-thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse from them by Ballot the Vice-President.) (This clause in parentheses was superseded by the 12th Amendment.)..."

So the GOP will have TWO INELIGIBLE candidates
to Obama, where the first created RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE.

WE WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY. NEVER.

Romney gave Massachusetts two terms of Deval Patrick,
and he will do the same for the USA with Obama.

"I'm not running as the Republican view or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"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.""

Unfortunately, Mormonism is not a “Church”, no more than the “Church of Scientology” — it is a polytheistic religion. Christianity believes in ONE God, Mormonism is about 3 and more gods...

RE “Beck yesterday told his GBTV audience that while he's not crazy about the prospect, that's what it is.
I hate the Republicans just as much as I hate the Democrats,” he said on yesterday's program. “I haven't found anybody I can vote for yet. … It's going to be Mitt Romney and Rubio. You watch. It will be. That's the way the machine works.....
.”

Believable..

That is why FNC fired Beck and replaced him with the Dana Perino (PE-RINO) show (”The Five”) so she can endlessly tell us what GWB would be doing now as POTUS. And Romney is definitely an extension of Bush just what we need now . FNC is the establishment Republican channel Bush-McCain-Romney.

If the GOP leadership pushes Romney on us, that WILL cause a third party...A GOP that will become the minority, populated by only the establishment moderates of the old GOP...

The “new” party will become a very strong conservative political entity right out of the gate...

That is where we will see the likes of Palin, Bachmann, et.al. drift to when the new party is implemented...

I bet we see a lot of people here go that way as well...

Won’t change what we discuss here, but at least it sets up an interesting 2014 election cycle...

That of course is dependent upon how we weather another 4 years of Obama...

Mitt Romney will not defeat Obama if it comes down to that matchup...

We’ll all bite the bullet in one way shape or form, and vote accordingly, but our turnout will not be enough to break the masses of stupid people in this country that will vote for Obama again...

Just my opinion...

Fixed it. If Romney is the GOP nominee (which looks like the fix is in), he will lose and the Republican party will go the way of the Whigs.

That is certainly a better scenario but I am not optimistic that the Republic will still exist after 4 more years of either of these guys.We are going to do a real economic collapse if the tax and regulatory system is not drastically altered in the next two years, maybe less. Both of these men will regulate and tax more and more, the kenyan because he is a blind marxist and Moslem and Romney because he thinks it takes a smart man turning all the economic wheels and knobs to maintain a free market and prosperity. Read about Argentina's collapse in 2002 and what it is like down there today. http://www.silverbearcafe.com/private/10.08/tshtf1.html
