How can any right thinking Christian, conservative or tea party supporter justify voting for Romney?
Romney is an empty suit. A complete fraud. Worse, he's anti-tea party, anti-conservative, anti-liberty! He has absolutely zero conservative accomplishments to his name. His ONLY accomplishments in government are liberal, ie, tax payer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun control, RomneyCare, mandates, etc. He is Obama-lite.
Are these voters uninformed, terrified, brainwashed, or just plain nuts?
Like Dr. Thomas Sowell said,
“Character assassination is just another form of voter fraud.”
There are some on this site who think he is WORSE than Obama. It warrants further thought.
I think the fact that Romney outspent Gingrich 7 to 1 (if I got my facts right) may have had a lot to do with it.
That, and the fact that the conservative vote was fractured. If you aggregate the votes for conservatives, the conservatives won.
I’;ve asked the Romneybots what 5 issues, just 5 , not asking much where Romney is different to Obama.
They cannot name one issue let alone 5 and when we have the health care and the homosexual community not bothered who wins between Romney and obama then we know we have been screwed over by FOX,Drudge, Coulter, the establishment elitist folks and Romney and his voters.
Perry, Michelle,Cain all got out to help the conservative cause, they put their ego’s aside , they put America to the top and why Rick stayed is beyond me, why people voted for him in my state knowing full well those votes will help Romney astounds me.
I wish people would stop acting like the Florida vote make Romney our candidate. Dear God - we have 46 more states to go.
IF it’s Obama or Romney, for which would you vote?
Not that I PREFER Romney...just asking.
I’m a right-thinking Christian conservative Tea Party supporting Floridian who is ashamed to be a part of this. I proudly voted for Newt, manned phones for a few hours this afternoon and even drove some folks to the polls.
Not sure if there’s much left of our Republic to warrant anymore fighting.
I’d say all of the above, Jim with the emphasis on the last one.
Ron Paul and Santorum help Romney by spliting the votes away from Newt.
Jim, unfortunately alot of Christians in America are not right thinking and have made a shipwreck of their faith.
Agree. That’s why Newt needs to drop out so Santorum can beat Romney.

We’ve got 46 to go but we’ve got to get through to these people.
Well said, onyx. This morning when I read Dr. Sowell’s piece that became my new tagline. :-)
Welcome to the disaster that is our primary process. One we should have fixed many, many years ago to put all primary voting on the same day for all states.
We continue to fight, because there’s no choice this time. We either help Newt win or the Republican party dies. This is crunch time.
Correct Rick Santorium is the true Conservative, however he is in a catch 22. When the media mentions him it is always followed by a but...he can’t win. but he is broke, but he is small stage, the fix is in. My fear that the two progressives Newt and Mitt for brains will not beat Obama. I hope I am wrong.
Don’t over-estimate the knowledge of the average folks out there. They only see or know what is fed to them by the media.
Romney had 13,000 AD’s here
I got one flyer off Newt, I got one nearly every day off Romney.
The people I talked to for support for Newt said for the most part that FOX would have mentioned those facts I had given them.
Some said that FOX had a lot of people saying Romney was bad.
What we need is for our own TV news channels which does cover social and fiscal matters and does the truth and does call out their lies and media bias.
If I had a lot of money I would most certainly set a channel up.
How many know about a boy being given shots to stop reaching puberty because the two homosexual women want to give him a sex change?
How many know about the gun running?
Not even half of this country
The man who:
Denied Ronald ReaganVoters are a fickle bunch.
Ran to the left of Ted Kennedy
Allows same sex marriage
Pushed socialist healthcare and individual mandates
Appointed liberal activist judges
Imposed tax payer funded abortion
Raised taxes and fees
Lies constantly about his own past record
Denigrates the actual conservative accomplishments of others
Only accomplishments in government have been LIBERAL
No conservative achievements
No core conservative principles
Has NEVER lifted a finger for any conservative causes
Is in fact a disgusting LYING LIBERAL
Cannot possibly beat Obama
Has no differences between his accomplishments and Obama's
The liberal media will be only too happy to point that out daily and hourly
Is Obama lite
I don’t see how any Christian could vote for Romney at all, or any conservative vote for Romney either.
The guy thinks he is the fulfillment of prophecy and thus ‘deserves’ to be POTUS.
I’m disgusted by Florida.
Um, Newt could have just as easily dropped out to help our cause. Why must it be Rick?
Will there be an acceptable third party candidate for my protest vote? Otherwise, I’ll just write in Palin.
This primary makes me sick. Newt was the happy warrior.
All positive with his 2012 Contract of real solutions, and he was running away with the nomination.
That wouldn't do! That interrupted Romney's 6 year plan for the presidency, so he went scorched earth and Santorum was the beneficiary in Iowa.
Now, instead of coalescing around Newt Gingrich to stop Romney, Santorum is attacking Newt Gingrich in Colorado and Nevada with scorched earth, but NOT attacking Romney!!
Get ready for 4 more years of Obama. The country gets what the country deserves.
Thank you for your efforts, really, thanks!
Jim, Is this a Trick Question?? I don’t see how it could possibly be answered, but I don’t see how any right thinking, conservative, christian could ever vote for this turd, unless of course they are BRAIN DEAD, I know Florida is home to Many Retirees, but is there that many convalescent homes and Dead People that still vote??
If he wins, the White House door will be shut to conservatives. Zero.. no conservative influence will be tolerated.
It beats the heck out of me too. The term “RINO” gets thrown around a lot around FR (maybe too often), but if ever it fit someone, it is Mitt Romney. As you say, he has ZERO conservative accomplishments to his credit. Zip. Nada. Zilch. And I simply do not buy the notion he has “seen the light” in recent years and embraced conservatism.
I'm a Catholic and I approve of that message.
Interesting that CBS said there is a long way to go and wouldn’t even say this puts him in the driver’s seat.
I am down here in Broward and just sick about the results coming in. The older folks (65+) that I know who could not be swayed from mittens were sold on the idea that he is only one who can beat obama. They think he is going to protect their medicare and social security. They were also unable to get over Newt’s indiscretions of many years ago.
As I see it, Newt, Sanspoilum, and mittens will all have at least one in the win column that was not a give me. Newt MUST learn some lessons from FL and Rick 2 must drop out...otherwise, we are all going to live in a world we never thought would come to pass in our lifetime.
If those were my only options, I wouldn’t vote. However, if someone put a gun to my head, I would probably vote for Obama since we know that would end in 4 years.
Thomas Sowell should have a louder voice IMHO. My respect for the man is virtually limitless.
I’m just one man, and unfortunately the malaise in this state is growing unbearable. I did what I could.
I didn’t. Two votes from this household for Newt.
Romney carpet bombed the state with attack ads.
Just like Obama is going to do to Romney nationwide after Labor Day.
Scant few are smarter than Dr. Thomas Sowell or more respected.
No wonder he endorsed Newt Gingrich.
I will never vote for Romney!
They only know what they’re told and all Pravda outlets lied to them.
If the realistic choices are Romney or Newt Gingrich I will hold my nose and vote for Romney. Why? Because I think Gingrich is a fundamentally bad, low-class, egotistical human being. And he’s really not much more conservative than Romney- he will be doing ads with Pelosi or calling out Paul Ryan’s budget if he thinks that’s to his political advantage. At least Romney strikes me as being a decent human being.
Maybe the country needs 4 more years of Obama...
“If you aggregate the votes for conservatives, the conservatives won.”
According to exit polls, 7 out of 10 Florida GOP voters today said they were conservative. But here’s a little factoid that’s disturbing:
Romney lost big among voters who feel it is most important to nominate a true conservative, but only 1 in 8 voters see that as their top priority.
Only 12% of GOP voters thought it was important to nominate a conservative.
Must be akin to the BCS process, makes (s)infinitely more money
You’re an idiot.
He has no class and chided Gingrich Saturday. He is not a good person and does not deserve to be President. When I watch this, I remember how I felt when Obama won. How could the people vote for him?
Absolutely right...NO ON ROMNEY.
Hey Floridians, fearing a repeat of the hanging chads has Florida gone to electronic voting machines?
