A word about Romney
vanity | Nov 12, 2011 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 11/12/2011 1:29:02 PM PST by Jim Robinson

RINO.

Three words: liberal progressive RINO.

Add a fourth, fifth, sixth, etc: unprincipled, untrustworthy, flip-flopper, aisle-crossing, fraud, liar, political whore.

And a few more: abortionist, gay rights panderer, gun-grabber, global warming advocate, big government mandate lover, socialist healthcare pusher, constitution trampling, liberal judge appointing, TARP loving, bailout loving, stimulus pushing Keynesian statist.

That my friends, is no definition of conservative or of conservatism. Not even close. In fact it's the exact opposite.

Free Republic is and will remain an exclusive pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-constitution, pro-small government, pro-capitalism, pro-defense, pro-borders, grassroots patriotic conservative site, regardless of party politics.

I support the Republican party as long as it promotes positions and candidates that I can agree with. The current party platform is a pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-constitution, pro-small government, pro-capitalism, pro-defense, pro-borders, patriotic, traditional conservative platform. When they formally (or informally) start knocking out or ignoring traditional conservative foundational planks so they can run liberal progressive RINOS then they have lost me. It won't be that I've left the Republican party, the Republican party will have left me.

Some people say FR is a cult. Well, I don't know about that, but I'll be damned if we're going to change our core principles and values so that we can support a man who has spent a political lifetime trying to run to the left of Ted Kennedy.

Every one of his leftist positions listed above are documented on the video linked below, which is a compilation of about a dozen debates and other Romney appearances where he vehemently advocates and defends his leftist positions and ideals:

Romney in his on words

Watch it all the way through. If he becomes the Republican nominee, I can guarantee you you will see these clips and more like them, over and over again on national TV. Romney is totally untrustworthy. And it's all documented in living color.

Yeah, I know. He's changed. He's now a life-long hunter who's always been pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-small government. And "most of his positions, all of them actually, have always been conservative." Just ask him. And that's the point. He's changed his mind, or at least, he's changed his political platform. And he'll change his mind again tomorrow. He'll continue changing his mind to match the current political winds. That's what unprincipled, untrustworthy, lying political whores do. It's in the nature of the beast.

I’ll not vote for this pig of a candidate even if he is the last Republican standing.

If he is, I vote for the AIP candidate or I write in someone who is actually a leader and a conservative.

Right On JR!!! Perfectly worded. This is YOUR SITE and you have THE RIGHT to manage it as you seem fit.

For the others that want to support Romney...there is always Yahoo - you can post whatever the heck you want there. No one will read it, but you may feel better.

Thank you.

Milt the Magic RINO:
"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.""

--  President Ronald Reagan

I agree with you on this guy. If he is the nominee versus Obummer I will not vote for him. Better to vote for a repulbican congress and senate to hold the Kenyan in check and wait another 4 years.

"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?"

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 is a second-rate Democrat. If you want a Democrat, may as well go for first-rate such as Obama.

One more comment. I think that we all admire you for your restraint regarding the other candidates. I think that at least half of the people on this site would just love to see more zots, for people that are going overboard supporting other candidates...but you are willing to let it all play out.

As much as I wish they were gone (and you can probably guess which ones I refer to), I still admire the fact that you are very careful with your zots and tend to give people the benefit of the doubt before ‘deleting’ them.

Thanks again, JR.

On Hannity a week or so ago and was asked about taxes. Sounded just like Bill Clinton and he always will. As you said he's an unprincipled political whore (like Billy boy) and if we let the fear of Obama make us choose Romney we fall into the same old trap.

Jim, you simply MUST break yourself of sugar-coating how you feel. But then, all you Dale Carnagie grads are like that.

That Romney is the Beltway Establishment pick is enough for me to vote for nearly anyone else.

People will say if you do not support the Republican nominee then you are helping the Democrats - but let’s just see what the truth of that is:

If Romney gets the Republican nomination it would be in the best interests of Conservatives (and hence all Americans) if Obama remained in office for another 4 years.

In the space of the average lifetime, there can only be so many Presidents. And when fakes calling themselves Conservative manage to get elected but do not lead as Conservatives then they have wasted a time period. Meanwhile the democrats give us liberal after liberal.

So it would be better that Obama remain in office four more years and then Conservatives have another chance, rather than being stuck with Romney 4 or possibly 8 years and thus wasting all that time, time that can never be gained back, and then another Liberal democrat gains office after Romney.

Exactly... I have problems with the other candidates but Myth Romney is no conservative..
He does talk a good game though.. like George Bush did..

The last thing the federal government needs is more money...
It NEEDS LESS MONEY...

Eliminating much of it can do that...
Eliminating taxes AFTER there is a surplus is the way to go..

Take a meat ax to the federal government and there WILL BE a surplus..
THEN.. and only then can taxation be addressed wisely..

Romney was out front pretending to support McCain/Palin in 2008, while his staffers were sabotaging the campaign from within and without.

America can thank Romney for Obama. There will be no forgiving, no forgetting, and no mercy.

I understand the “fight for the soul” of the party thinking. If we can not elect a conservative after 4 years of this O’conomy, then we never will.

Specter was a Senator in PA for forever and a day, but I never voted for him. But I do not place Romney on par with a lib like Specter. Romney is 1000 times better than Obama. Even though I am for Newt, I will gladly vote for Romney if nominated.

That's because the electorate is generally uninformed. They are basically conservative but have no access to truth.

The liberal media is pushing Mitt like there is no tomorrow.

Why?

Because they know that they can destroy him. Mormon, flip-flopper, RomneyCare, the whole shootin' match. All these things could individually bring him down. All these things together? 4 more years of Obama, guaranteed.
