Mitt vs. Mitt - Why I will never vote for Mitt Romney
YouTube.com ^ | DNC

Posted on 01/26/2012 7:07:30 AM PST by reegs

This video perfectly encapsulates why I will never vote for the biggest flip-flopper to ever grace a presidential election, the person who chooses the most politically expedient side of an issue, Mitt Romney. This video by the DNC proves they are aware of Romney's greatest weakness: himself. In 4 minutes it completely destroys any credibility Romney might have on any issue.

If Romney becomes the nominee, this video will be used to demoralize the conservative base, suppressing turnout in November and leading to another 4 years of Obama. We cannot let this happen!

Noble sentiment. Perhaps President Obama will send you a VIP invitation to his second inauguration.

Wow, you “will never vote” for the Republican opponent of Barack Obama because you let a DNC-produced ad designed to demoralize people like you actually work? Wow, we’re lucky to have you on our side!

I think the point of the OP is that Willard Romney is fatally flawed as a candidate. He will lose in a general election whether the OP votes for him or not.

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, “I did not leave the Republican Party, it left me.” A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama and the status quo anyway, so do as you will.

So, you don’t agree that this video, no matter the source, is toxic to Romney should he be the nominee?

If you feel you can't vote for Romney, then don't (but make sure you vote the rest of ticket). I honestly haven't decided if I'm going to choke down the bile and vote Romney if he gets the nomination, (like I did with McCain and have regretted ever since). Or if I'll vote 3rd party or write in a candidate. But don't be intimidated by the “You better vote for whatever POS the Republican party shoves down our throat or you LOVE Obama and are personally responsible for his reelection.” They said the same thing about McCain in 2008...

Your statement was that you would “never” vote for Romney. No matter how much you or I may prefer that someone else were the Republican candidate, a refusal to vote for him in the general election, if he is nominated, is the functional equivqlent of supporting Obama. That’s someting I would never do.

“A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama and the status quo anyway”

If you truly believe this, then you are truly helpless. A vote for Romney, by definition, would be a vote against Obama.

It’s funny (and by funny I mean pathetic) how many people on this site are trying to rationalize helping Obama win a second term by sitting the election out. “Well at least we’ll have our principles!” Bull sh*t.

If Obama gets re-elected, and you didn’t vote for the man who stood in his way, then EVERYTHING that happens to our country over those next four years will be on your head. Period.

Romney likes to say that Obama is “in over his head” but it’s not quite that simple. If Romney doesn’t recognize that there is a certain maliciousness behind these fundamental changes in America then I wouldn’t necessarily want to see him on the ballot, come November.

Are you referring to the leftist that looks like Obama or the Obama-lite leftist wearing the Romney mask running on the GOP RINO ticket? There are leftists pulling the Trojan Horse and leftists riding inside the Trojan Horse.

No thank you. I also will NOT vote Romney in ANY election. The establishment GOP can shove it!

I have problems with both Romney and Gingrich. Why Newt in particular couldn’t be a consistent conservative throughout his career is beyond me. He would be an easy choice if he had avoided things like the ad on the couch with Nancy Pelosi and statements of admiration for FDR. For some reason, he can’t stop himself from making moves like these.

I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR ROMNEY EITHER. THERE ARE MILLIONS LIKE US. I wonder how a person could put together an on-line petition to send to the RNC, that has the signatures of those who would not suport Romney under any circumstances. If they had any idea how strong this sentiment is they would back down.

And yet you have said nothing about the myriad of bad decisions, immoral issue positions, and change of positions of Myth Romney.

How odd?!

And the differences, comparitively speaking, between Newt and Mitt in terms of raliability and trustworthiness couldn't be more stark.

I will not vote for Mitt Romney. No one can explain to me how he would be better that Obama. They try to say “judges” but if you look at the judges he appointed inh Mass. it ain’t a pretty picture.

He is a gun-grabber.

He is a baby-killer. (one of his companies even profited off of the little dead babies’ corpses)

He is a fan of socialist medicine.

He implemented gay “marriage.”

If any one of you disgusting, cowardly, Romney-bots can give me hard proof that NONE of what I have accuse him of is true, I’ll vote for him.

Until then, tagline.

Mitt would be much more dangerous than Obama. He would destroy the conservative movement in America. His appointees to the supreme court would be to the left of those that could get confirmed by Obama. He WOULD NOT get rid of Obamacare. He is pro gay marriage, trust me. He has said publically he would be the gay agenda’s greatest advocate. He will say anything to get elected. We can control a President Obama, we would be in deep trouble with a Romney administration filled with ‘liberal’ republicans, that could not be distinguished from what we have now.

And if we vote for Myth the Liberal, and he proves to be the POS that we all KNOW THAT HE IS, then we are guilty of taking an affirmative step in making HIS liberal BS for this nation happen.

Given his past, why is it that you trust Myth?

Given that Myth Romney has a reliable and verifiable track record of destroying the Massachussetts GOP because of his leftward tilt on everything, I'll vote third-party if he is the nominee.

If Myth was the nominee, the GOP is already dead in terms of conservatism.

I will work tirelessly, however, for true conservative GOP candidates in all down-stream races.

I participate in the Tea party not to rid the nation of Obama but to heal the nation of the destructive disease called liberalism. Romney is a liberal. Removing one cancer by introducing a new one does not provide a cure it simply tells the nation that the new cancer is now to blame for the body's deterioration. I will NOT vote for Romney in any election.

AND...I will never vote for Newt because he is arrogant, egotistical, morally corrupt and a big fat liar. Oh, and by the way, if you think he’s a conservative, he has you fooled. Check out his past statements about Ronald Reagan who he currently is trying to embrace.

Some get away with bashing Newt, some don't. Are you feeling lucky today?

Our refusal to vote for Mitt isn't based in DNC attack ads.

Our refusal to vote for Mitt is based on his own record, his own statements, his own issue positions, his total and complete lack of reliability and trustworthiness.

His record is a liberal one.

Funny how you make no mention of his record.

Right now I’m inclined to not vote for either and vote conservative down-ticket. However, once in the voting booth, my complete and utter disdain for Obama might override my just utter disdain for Romney. What’s the old saying, “You get more of what you pay for?” Keep buying that crappy GOP product and keep telling yourself it was worth it.

Many who do not understand why many will not support Mitt over Obama miss the point. Mitt Romney is more dangerous and could easily move the country further to the left than Obama ever could. Mitt Romney is the worse kind of politician one who so deserpertely wants to be president that he will do anything to get there. Once there, he will move to the left and could actually do the bidding of the left much easier than Obama would ever be allowed to. I AND MILLIONS OTHERS WILL NOT VOTE FOR ROMNEY, EVER.

“Don’t try to spin your way out this reality.”

I don’t have to spin because I don’t plan to grab my ankles for another ultra-liberal GOP candidate that is even more liberal than the one before who was even more liberal than the one before that. The spin has to come from those who say things like, “Obama says, ‘Thanks!’” who again accept what the liberals throw at them.

Well, the GOP might consider factoring that into their calculus, because I too will not vote for Romney. I might even vote all DEM to spite the Republicans, for shoving Romney down my throat. I hope the federal government collapses - I can get along fine without it.

You have to understand the motivation of the GOP E, they do not care If Romney wins or not. I guarantee they have had back room talks with the dems and agreed to back Romney because Romney is the epitome of the status quo.
The GOP E only care about the power they have now and fear that any real change in DC would lessen or eliminate the power they have.
If Romney gets the nom, he will lose. The left will make this all about class warfare and independents will flock to Obama because he is “fair”.
Hopefully unlike with the McCain fiasco this time the heads in the sand republican voters will finally see what is really going on and realize that its not the people who elects but the GOP E that selects.

Every four years the Republican elites give us some rino and scream that the demoncrat alternative is worse.

Every four years the Republican elite give us some rino and scream that we must protect the Supreme Court from leftist nominations by voting for the rino.

Every four years the Republican elite give us some rino and tell us that a third party will mean the Demoncrat will win.

Screw the Republican elite. Screw the rinos. It is time to kill the Republican party and start a new a new party. Remember that the Republican party was once a new party and it was not many years after their formation that they saved the union from a Demoncrat led civil war.

these are good reasons to work for Tea Party candidates in congress. Here in DFW I am supporting Grant Stinchfield to replace a tired old GOP guy that never changed anything. After all it was the congress that spent the money on bridges to nowhere not the president. (who never vetoed anything because Delay told him he need votes.)

It is this scorched earth attack adopted by Romney and his GOP establishment hacks which has turned me off to holding my nose--again--and voting for McRomney if he becomes the nominee. Romney is nothing but a sleazy liberal who will lie to score points.

If the GOP thinks that the voters will continue to suck it up and vote for whatever moderate or liberal that is pushed by the establishment, they will have no incentive to change their approach.

I choose not to vote for either Mr. Romney or Mr. Obama.
I will vote for conservatives where I can.
The ‘argument by extortion’ that is being foisted upon Conservatives by liberal statist Republicans is pathetic.
They threaten and bluster that Conservatives have to vote Establishment or ‘else’ and it will all be ‘your’ fault. I suggest that if Mr. Obama gets more votes, the ‘fault’ will lie on those who voted for him, living or dead, and also on those whose rigid liberal ideology prevents even the nomination of a reasonable Conservative.
They offer no discussion of policy or program or philosophy, just a weary drone from Republican party hacks with a track record of political failure.
The liberal Republicans and statists are the ones who have destroyed the Republican Party.
A new party will arise and fill the vacuum left by the failure of liberal Republicans.

Mitt Romney did not change his postitions from liberal to conservative until he ran for President in 2008.

I do not trust what a man says he believes, I trust a mans’ record.

Romneys is the record of a liberal.

I do not vote for liberals.

Why SHOULD I believe him? Because the magic “R” following his name is a magic wand that makes me forget what he has done when he held government power?

I do not believe that a thinking person trusts the word of ANY politician. That you trust Romneys’ IN SPITE of his record makes me suspect your thought process.
