I agree. Women will vote for Romney, and their votes will get rid of Obama. I honestly don’t think the soccer moms and other female voting groups will support Gingrich in such a comparable way. This will be especially evident when everyone is reminded that Gingrich cheated on his wife with another woman, and is currently on his third marriage.
Spoken like a true....um, a true....uh, oh never mind.
Good point. I heard the most absurd theories about Romney: One said he supported or even pushed for passage of RomneyCare, another that he pushed for gay marriage in his state, and a third said that he was a big government liberal who strongly supports legislation underminging the Second Amendment, including the Brady Bill, mandatory firearms ID cards, waiting periods to purchase firearms, Feinstein's gun ban, and restrictions on semi-automatic firearms. Other than his entire political career, I haven't seen any evidence that would justify those silly accusations.
Thanks for the message . I know some VERY conservative people who believe that Trump is the real deal . I’m not as sure , but I know he would make a much better President than Romney , for example . Seems that the people are too brainwashed to grasp that Trump is better than Romney. Many Independents are really leftists and they flood the internet with lies about Trump. Notice Ron Paul never shouts anything anti-China? Because he is a communist. Trump is always bashing China. There are many brainwashed Republicans that would never vote outside the party and that is a big problem .
Here is my feelings on Romney: he is *not* the perfect candidate by any means, but I like the fact that as far as we know he is a good family man and seems to have a moral compass. I like the fact that he has been a successful businessman and leader (very successful); he knows how markets work and I believe he is smart enough to make a good faith attempt of getting us out of the economic mess we are in.
What I don’t like about him is that he is a political opportunist, and is willing to sway with the wind - he see’s a parade and wants to get in the front of it, no matter which way it is going.
Why I will vote for him if he is the candidate is that the mood of the country has changed; imo we will keep the house (maybe pickup some seats) and either take the senate or at least make some additional gains...
Therefore, the parade will be heading to the right, and Romney will want to get in front of it and lead; he will not take on a Republican congress, he will work well with them - he will want to be successful, and he will only be successful if he is mostly on board with them.
*IF* I thought for a second the house/senate was going to left in a major way, I *would not* want to vote for Romney...because he would see the parade heading to the left and lead it that way...that is his opportunistic way.
I see him as smart enough to see the writing on the wall, smart enough to hire competent people, and smart enough to see that the country needs a BIG dose of fiscal conservatism;. He also won’t be seen as a radical extremist by middle america (he is fairly polished politically, no?), so he will have a better chance of leading the parade whichever way it goes and be able to make a palatable case for why it needs to go that way (even if deep down he doesn’t believe it).
A political opportunist to be sure, but with the right people in the house and the senate, he is smart enough to cooperate.
That said, the *most* important thing fiscal conservatives can do is keep and improve on the margins in the house and senate; ultimately (if they have a backbone), they control the purse strings no matter who is in the WH.
Are you suggesting that women vote in Presidential races entirely based upon which guy has the best hair?
I don’t see Romney as anything more than another George H.W. Bush. He’s not a conservative, he’s changed his stance on abortion and other issues, and is not going to get the base to rally around him. I doubt that Romney is going to do well in the South.
I’m in NH, and I am not voting for another Dole/McCain retread. Willard is the establishment’s choice. With the open primary, I’m afraid we’re going to see a repeat of 2008.
I recall when the sleazy behavior of Tiger Woods came to public attention. Virtually every sponsor dropped him like a bad habit because the sponsors recognize that women are the premier purchasers of consumer goods and services throughout America. Packaging a politician these days is not much different than packaging a consumer product. However, one thing to recall is that if women find the salesman of said product offensive, then they won’t buy the product. Because Romney is attractive, takes care of his wife and children and doesn’t have the destructive behavioral patterns of Obama, I believe women will vote for him en masse and thereby vote Obama out. Gingrich will NOT have this same effect because of his troubled, and in one case - BAD BEHAVIOR, during his marriages.
Bain Capital, has cut checks totaling $90,000 to Romneys operation.
And your point is? Maybe you are just another Groupthinker on FR who has crossed over into the “99%”-ers and don’t have an opinion of your own.
Bain is capitalism and job creation at work. This thread is evidence of FR becoming fringe nutcases.
It’s not a surprise; so many in NH are totally uninformed, and their voting pattern shows it. They can be controlled by the state media.
Prole, good observation, and you are probably right. So all our campaign efforts for non-Romney candidates are fruitless.
Well, congratulations, CASchack, you must be an aberrant NH voters: most just stick with the frontrunner’s “turn” but call themselves discerning and independent.
You misunderstand how many Americans are totally uninformed and easily misled.
Yes, indeed, and I don't think Mrs. Cain was in the mood for ANY explanation either.
What evidence is there that Mitt Romney governs as a liberal?
I guess you must have had your super duper magnifying bifocals on when you posted that........lolol
You are exactly right. The problem is that we thought we were making some progress in that direction with the last election, but with Democrat plant, Crybaby Boehner as speaker, Obama has gotten everything he wants passed.
The presidential race is the same: 2008 = McCain, 2012 = Gingrich/Romney. Absolutely no progress at all. It's as if the whole Tea Party movement never happened.
I think a lot of conservatives will be discouraged from believing that change can be made from within the two major parties.
and this public opinion propaganda is disgusting
its so blatantly obvious that the MSM is pushing Romney
One gathers you support the 911 Victory Mosque,
or Romney, or both, too?
"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."

Milt Romney 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
wouldnt make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
I will support whomever is the GOP nominee with the single objective of removing the Commie currently occupying the White House.
Well, I don’t know much about women, but I can assure you that their votes will determine who the next President is. Without their support, Obama will get re-elected. That is why family and personal behavior matter most.
Are you forgetting about Bill Clinton? Do you remember the "arousal gap?"
I won't support Romney. He and his family, starting with his father, have been fighting the Reagan Revolution ever since Ronald Reagan emerged on the national scene.
This anti-Romney doctrine may help destroy the country by giving dumb0 and Cloward-Piven another four years to further eviserate our culture. Just look how quickly the country is turning to socialism. 0 will get about three more Supreme Court picks in the next term and that will be the end. Think!
Perhaps it is you who needs to think. I want a conservative, not someone who is committed to destroying conservatism which both have espoused. Romney only names Reagan to fool the gullible who haven't paid attention to his actions. Avoiding Obama by replacing him with Romney is like avoiding a Ford by replacing it with a Mercury. The differences are only cosmetic.
Hey, thanks for the new tagline. Couldn't agree more.
I would say your attitude is like refusing to use the parachute because it’s the wrong color.
Right, NH should drop its bogus “Live Free or Die” slogan. They certainly don’t believe it.
Whatever. Given that I'm hardly alone in my sentiment, it would be a much better use of your time trying to keep Romney from getting the nomination. I'm not a total purist but Romney is a bridge too far (actually a few bridges too far). McCain was bad enough but he is light-years better than Romney.
Why are you conceding the nomination to this liberal, faux-conservative phony? I'm not and will do all I can to keep Romney from getting the nomination. If Romney does, I'll not lift one finger to get him elected.
