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.
Needs to update his tinfoil hat, the one he has is getting corroded.
Telling....actually not..Freepers already knew!
It makes me happy to see liberal-tarian Ron Paul teaming up with liberal Mitt Romney. They belong together...in the Democrat party.
Shows how much Paultard is in the boat for Romney.
All those who support Paul must be on drugs.
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.
If Mitt has such a vonerful management style, why is his campaign in the pits, after pluggin’ at it for 6 years with scads of cash to boot?
Ronny and Willard really should get a room.
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.
(Okay, just kidding, it’s late. Time for bed. Needed a laugh before going to sleep.)
See, there’s a winning ticket — Romney/Paul 2012. /s
I dig it. But let’s sub in a real winner...Eli.
At least the Boston media will hate him ;)
Don’t that purty?
Loving the keywords!
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.
Ron is getting a bit old to be swooning over Mittens.
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.
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.
Paul continues to attack conservatives leaving Romney alone....strange bedfellows etc etc
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, Im uncomfortable with all three of them. I think theyre the status quo and they dont want to really change anything and thats what Im 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.
Rinos aren’t great but they are way better than Obama. Period.
Well than call me a racist.
I’d say you’re a confused liberal. You may just be on the wrong website. This website is for conservatives.
I’m a conservative. But my goal is eliminating Obama at all costs. Can I make that any clearer?
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.
I’m from GA and truly dislike the man. His politics are great when they’re focused on the right thing. The problem is they hardly are.
Are these guys lovers, or opposing candidates? What gives?
Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
I don’t believe in exchanging crap for poop. So when you say you’ll take crap over poop, because crap can beat poop, I question your judgment. You are too liberal for me.
Your idea of eliminating the plague is by replacing it with ebola. Not smart or very effective.
More like chicken pox versus small pox.
But hey, cheers to different opinions.
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.
I’ll say it again. I support whomever can beat Obama.
It is my belief that neither Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich can.
Which is why I’m voting for a brokered convention.
It’s pretty simple, mate.
In any case,Lincoln had no management style worth speaking of, but he learned how to run a war by sheer application and by trial and error. I have not seen much application by our current president. He is obviously a lazy man.
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.
Where do I and my overtook of knee pads.....?????
Make the case for your guy.
“Rinos arent 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.
