There were rumors (nothing more than rumors) that there was a deal between Romney and Paul related to Romney picking his son as VP. This article almost makes that seem plausible.

The Five was all over Paul today about his running ads in States where he isn’t even competing against the other candidates except Romney- which pretty much helps Romney.

I had said that was quite possible a couple months ago. Now, I’m not so sure. Since he’s having so much trouble securing the nomination he’ll have to make the base happy IF he gets the nom.

I like a lot about Santorum, some about Rom, and even less for Newt, but my overarching goal is beating 0. I don’t think these guys can

We need a brokered convention. I’d take Palin, Christie, Daniels or Paul Ryan.

No Jeb!

It makes me happy to see liberal-tarian Ron Paul teaming up with liberal Mitt Romney. They belong together...in the Democrat party.

“What you’re seeing is candidates that are showing out the flaws in each other,” Bachmann said.

MB - what we are seeing is Mitt and Rick are LIARS. That's a major flaw for it shows they have no proven successes to run on. And the world saw your lack of attacking Mitt on anything but covering his butt. We saw your flaws, also. Political hungry for the sake of America is one. Attacking Perry while lying about 'some woman' you never could produce. Perry the Patriot.

In case of a brokered convention, we need:

1. Someone who is 100% Natural Born Citizen and Qualified Constitutionally for President

2. We know can win the South

3. Despised by the Northeast

4. Has gone up against the Chicago Machine and Beaten it when it matters

5. Solid Conservative (Social/Fiscal/Foreign Policy)

6. Motivational Speaker, Respected by Many

7. Always takes Responsibility for their actions, whether good or bad

8. Knows what it’s like (currently) to battle the “Establishment” that wants to force him out

9. Knows how to come from behind/Proven winner

10. Never gives up

11. Makes everyone around him better (Good for House/Senate down the line votes)

Who is this person?

Duh, Peyton Manning

And just so we have someone there to help Peyton know what he’s doing, David Petraeus.

Manning/Petraeus 2012

(Okay, just kidding, it’s late. Time for bed. Needed a laugh before going to sleep.)

Paul has even said this months ago about Romney. Paul says he talks to Romney often by phone and both families are close. Paul doesn't like Newt or Rick by any means therefore, I look for Paul to assist Romney when trouble looks on the horizon for his friend.

I hate to keep saying this but it is the truth, a brokered convention will not bring anyone new or outside to the table. The people who will be doing the brokering will be the party and precinct leadership and the delegates already loyal to one candidate or another. There will be no one brokering on behalf of any ‘outsider’ beyond maybe a handful. The result of a brokered convention will most likely be the most establishment friendly candidate.

Wishing for a Palin, Manning, West or whoever is about as likely as a unicorn pooping ice cream cones and just distracts us from the real battle in front of us.

Politics is all about corruption! These days more so than in the past. We have no Statesmen (heck how about just honesty) and there are none on the horizon. What we have is self-professed power seekers looking to transform America.

That means that the US and our style of government will fall...

I have to disagree. Newt wins the South + Santorum wins the Midwest + Romney wins the coast = Brokered Convention

No way either gets the needed number of votes.

I didn’t say a brokered couldn’t happen, I was saying you won’t get anyone but one of those as the candidate.

There will be no delegates representing an ‘outsider’ at the convention to broker for them. You will have brokering done between delegates of those candidates and party leadership.

"I like a lot about Santorum, some about Rom, and even less for Newt"

What about Obama-white, I mean Romney (Rom to you), impresses you the most? Does his love of gay marriage, Romneycare or mandates cause you to cheer? Perhaps it is his gun banning you like. Or maybe you like the way he puffs up lies about himself and slanders others so convincingly? Is there anything about that lying, slime bucket, POS socialist that anyone but the biggest liberals could like?

Just say no to Christie and Daniels. Just say no to RINOs.

Is anyone old enough to remember the 1952 Republican Convention? According to my mother, Robert Taft(senate Majority Leader) came to the convention with enough delegates to secure the nomination. It was very close. A few delegates from California assured Taft he had their vote. Eisenhower sent his manager to talk with the California delegation, headed by Earl Warren (barf). Ike promised he would appoint Earl warren to the first vacancy on the Supreme Court. Warren got all his delegates to vote for Ike, Taft lost by a couple votes. We got Earl Warren as Chief Justice of the Supreme court. This continued the ruin of the USA.

“But as far as issues go, I’m uncomfortable with all three of them. I think they’re the status quo and they don’t want to really change anything and that’s what I’m offering.”

Uncomfortable? Yea well, let the evidence show, so is the rest of the GOP base.

With that said, why bother with primaries? Just let the pollsters tell us who will win. So why should we even bother to vote? The pollsters already told us who will win.

If you really are conservative, your goal should be to eliminate liberalism, socialism and communism whether it has a (d) for Obama or his liberal socialist counterpart in the republican party, Mitt Romney.

How you can possibly hate Newt more than the person who is single handedly responsible for gay marriage, is the architect of Obamacare, and is the one who originally forced Catholic charities and other religious organizations in Massachusetts to do things against their religion.

You haven’t been here long enough to know this. But we don’t like Romney here at all because he is a socialist. It would be best for you not to show your love for him here. We know Romney and his pinko beliefs very well and we have fought his Mittbotts for a long time. For you to say you hate pinko Obama but like pinko Romney makes no sense. There is no difference between them.

Eliminate both.

Smallpox, an infectious disease unique to humans, caused by either of two virus variants, Variola major and Variola minor

Obama = Variola major

Romney = Variola minor

Both viruses cause small pox. You end up sick, sick, sick.

(You don’t know anything about Mittens if you consider him chicken pox.)

I am going on the assumption that you don’t know Romney at all. Take a look a my tagline. See Romney’s positions on the front page. Get to know what real conservatives think of the lying sack of crap that is Mitt Romney, fake conservative. If he is still acceptable to you, there is no hope for you.

Either you are myopic, are ignorant of Romney's Progressive Liberal record as Governor, or you are not a conservative.

Any failures in Newt's past pale in comparison to the left-wing positions and governance of Mitt Romney.

Mitt has done the following:

1. Implemented Socialized Medicine with an individual mandate
2. Supported Abortion
3. Supported the Gay Agenda to the point of going out of his way and bypassing the MA congress to implement Gay Marriage
4. Implemented the fake Assault Weapons ban in MA after it expired at the federal level.
5. Supported TARP.
6. Supported the Auto Bailouts
7. Supported Global Warming
8. Did not support Bushes Tax Cuts
9. Stated unequivocally he was not a Reagan Conservative.
10. Raised taxes and fees (just another word for taxes) while governor of MA.

I dare you to try and find such a comprehensive list of failures where conservatism is concerned with Newt.

Furthermore, you find Newt changing positions on issues back and forth with the extreme frequency that Romney does.

Finally, Newt is not a liar as Mitt is.

So either you are ignorant of Mitt's record, or you are a troll and actually support Mitt.

All those who support Paul must be on drugs.

Most of the Paul supporters I've met are druggies, and they'll make deviant sexual advances against your wife, kids, pets, and livestock, if they get half a chance.

Probably the same for Romney supporters, but I've never let them get that close.

“Rinos aren’t great but they are way better than Obama. Period.”

RINOs like Bush I, BushII, Dole, McCain etc. pave the way to the Obamas of the world. They make socialism more palatable by easing us into it and putting a partial GOP-seal on the movement toward it.

They muddy the waters, confuse the issue and weaken our opposition to what’s happening on our side. By being on “our side” where much less likely to criticize them for doing the same exact things Obama does. That makes RINOs in some ways more dangerous — because they drain our resolve for true reform.

What would help is a clear alternative and maybe a crisis that forces us to adopt the painful post-Communist-style reforms that are necessary. See Chile and Poland. RINOs will not get us there. In fact, they’ll help lead us in the opposite direction.

Under these circumstances, it might be best for Obama to win the election, further wreck the economy and make the options between socialism/fascism and free-markets a lot more clear to the electorate than they appear to be now.
