Skip to comments.Romney Denialists
Posted on 01/17/2012 8:22:06 AM PST by BuckeyeTexan
Though I have yet to read anything on the Internet that caused me literally to bash my laptop computer into the nearest available hard surface, comments like this, in the comments section of a popular conservative website, come pretty close:
Oh no we won't. The GOP has been forcing us to choose their candidates. No thank you.
As most of you reading this probably have already guessed, the "oh no he won't" the commenter is vowing is that he won't unite behind Mitt Romney should the ex-gov of Mass win the GOP nomination.
Well, let me be the first to break the news to Mr. Oh-No-I-Wouldn't: Oh, yes, you will. You may say you won't, you may even think it. But when the bell tolls midnight on November 5 and the Ghost of America in Decline Future forces you to confront the prospect of four more years of Barack Obama, the nanosecond dawn breaks on the 6th, you will propel yourself from your bed like the proverbial bat out of hell and pull the "R" lever - yes - even if the label next to it says "Romney."
Or maybe I'm wrong and this commenter really, truly will never vote for Mitt Romney, no way, no how. In which case, he's definitely in the right political party. "The Stupid Party" is not an appellation they just give to a political party; it must be earned.

Oh, my. You just gotta read this one, in full. Unbelievable.
Geez, Gene—I can hardly wait for you to say the same thing about Newt, OUR ABR candidate.
That happens in print media ~ you drift and drift and drift and hope nobody ever catches up to what you've done.
The problem with the internet is somebody, anybody for that matter, can jump out of the bushes alongside the band-with and start shouting "Commie, commie, commie" ~ and so they do here!
i've still got some weeds in the tops of my boots too.
Oh, no, I won't, you smarmy SOB!

You have got to be kidding me! If you cannot see the near blind allegiance that the conservative “elites” (except Rush and Levin) give to Romney, then you are indeed being led around by the nose. 1 caucus, in which no delegates were actually committed, and 1 primary win for Romney. Whoop-tidee-doo! That doesn’t make him the choice of the grassroots. No candidate can clinch the nomination before mid-April.
Romney hasn’t been vetted at all by the media. They won’t talk about his flip-flops on every single plank of the conservative platform. They don’t talk about his record of liberal judicial appointments. They won’t talk about his role in the MA housing crisis. (Oh but I will, shortly. Stay tuned.) They won’t talk about his big-government record.
The liberals are salivating at the idea of facing Romney in the general. If you want to give Obama 4 more years, go right ahead and support Romney. That’s what you’ll get. But don’t get all bent out of shape while the rest of us, who are awake and paying attention, fight Romney to the bitter end.
Most of us may hold our nose and eventually vote for the dude, but we're not going to have enough enthusiasm to push him over the top. A bad candidate is not going to win this thing, and Willard is pretty darn bad. Bland, uninspiring, flip-flopping, and somewhat plastic looking is not a good combo.
Give us bold colors that one of the three conservatives will bring.
We sheepish conservatives will let ourselves be sheparded to the pols as we did for statist Bush, statist McCain and vote for statist Romney. But no one else will vote for him because he is an incompetant politican and creepy to boot.
Repeat in 4 years with another statist boob.
Hey chump...munch on this!
Apparently, this guy believes that remaining loyal to “the party”, regardless of what “the party” has come to stand for, is THE most important thing a voter can do.
It is clear to me that either 1) he has not followed this ‘philosophy’ through to its logical conclusion, or 2) his head is filled with mush - possibly both.
My problem with this line of thinking is that it’s the pollsters and the MSM who have been trying to choose our candidates for us.
Newt is clearly the people's choice but all we hear is Romney, Romney, Romeny.
As long as people continue to think like this guy, the Powers That Be know they can do what they want no matter what we think. This guy's attitude is EXACTLY why we will be stuck with Mitt.
I will not vote for Romney. What in the world makes people think he is any better than the idiot in office now? They are both liars who say what they need to say on order to get votes. Different shades of suck, IMO.
The author seems to be of the opinion that there isn’t really a GOP elite trying to lead conservatives around by the nose. He seems to think that Romney’s Iowa Caucus win and New Hampshire Primary win make Romney the defacto choice of the conservative grassroots - not the defacto choice of the GOP Elite.
He fails to address the media’s total lack of negative coverage on Romney and seems to equate that lack of negative converage with the GOP elite having considered the facts of this election and having reached a reasonable conclusion that Romney is the grassroots’ chosen candidate according to all national polls thus far.
If anyone is being led around by the nose, it’s the author, not conservatives. We’ve got Romney’s number. We know his game.
Entertaining read but at the end he says “Just do what you feel is right”
They will as soon as he is nominated. The nation will also be "schooled" by the MSM on the evils of mormonism, count on it.
The liberals are salivating at the idea of facing Romney in the general.
Oh No I won’t either if they think they can fool us for a 3rd time (Dole & McCain) then they better think again. I’m tired of the National Republican Party & the Media telling us who we have to vote for regardless if they are a Conservative or not.
Oh no, we will have no choice but to vote for H.W. “Read My Lips” Bush a second time!
Oh no, we will have no choice but to vote for Bob Dole!
Oh no, we will have no choice but to vote for John McCain!
Oh no, we will have no choice but to vote for Romney (what’s his first name, again, is it “Liberal” or “RINO”?)!
PATTERN RECOGNITION, PEOPLE!
The Democrats do not have pattern recognition, and rationalize away making the same bad decisions, over and over again.
Republicans, ESPECIALLY conservatives, are supposed to be better than that! We are supposed to be able to recognize BAD candidates, foisted on us as the ONLY alternative, by liberal Republicans far more respectful of liberal Democrats than to conservative Republicans.
Fool me once, shame on you!
Fool me twice, shame on me!
Fool me three times, slap my bottom and call me “sweetie”!
Fool me four times, and I deserve to be ignored forever.
