Romney: Conservatives Who Don't Like Me Now Will Learn To When I'm The Nominee (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | RealClearPolitics

Posted on 03/14/2012 4:00:22 PM PDT by i88schwartz

Mitt Romney talks to FOX News' Megyn Kelly about attracting support from conservative voters.

"When you ask in these prior elections, 'who as conservatives did you vote?,' I won the conservative vote. Some who are very conservative may not yet be in my camp, but they will be when I become the nominee, when I face Barack Obama. Because again, what the nation wants is someone who understands the economy, not, if you will, an economy lightweight. I mean, Senator Santorum is a nice guy but he does not understand how the economy works. He's never had a job in the real economy. You have to understand this economy in order to fix it," he said.

I might be able to hold my nose and vote for Mittens (don’t know yet), but no way could I like him.

Is his government controlled health care better than Obama’s? I'm convinced. I like him better already.

I just can’t get behind Santorum, but I like Newt. I’ll obviously vote for Santorum (or Romney) but I think he would make the worst showing of any of the 3 GOP candidates.

Those in the “very conservative” camp have so far outnumbered those ‘conservatives’ Romney talks about. Maybe he ought to re-calibrate his political slide rule.

Way to try and consolidate the Conservatives Milt. This reminds me of Pelosi saying that we will find out what is in Obamacare after it passes. I don’t really want to find out if Milt is a Conservative until after he is elected. This guy is a clown.

Senator Santorum is a nice guy but he does not understand how the economy works.

Santorum was born with a single face and still totes a single face.

He also has a disgust for government run health care.

That's enough for me!

I guess you would rather have another 4 years of Obama?

I did not vote for Mitt yesterday...
I voted yesterday for who I wanted, but I’ll vote in November for who I must.

We MUST get rid of the Marxist in the White House.

Sorry, Mittens. I held my nose for Dole and McLame . . . I'll not do it again. Your a go__amn democrat and make me sick every time I think about your stupid lies. Somehow, you're going to steal the nomination for genuine conservatives.

And if you get in office, you won't do a damn thing to straighten things out. You're a DEMOCRAT! GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!

The DIMS picked our candidate. They have been telling the MSM, the GOP base, and the rest of their liberal voters who make it happen, that Romney is our candidate, and will really give Obama a run.....OH REALLY?? Conservative voters who don’t like Romney are not on board, and when push comes to shove, they just may not vote for him. It is true some say, whoever runs will get the vote of whoever becomes the candidate. I don’t think so. I hope the race goes all the way to the convention...Bring it on.

Willard is underestimating the McCain effect. That is many of us held our noses and voted for McCain (even then mostly bc he had Palin on the ticket) and what did that get us?
I doubt Willard will have a Palin on his ticket. Probably a Christie or a J Bush?
Not going to get anyone except the GOP-e excited.

I would vote for another four years of Clinton before id vote for Obama. If Mitt wins the nomination, he’s correct, we’ll be forced to support him. I hope a miracle comes true, and Newt pulls out a long shot.

Not this time.

It’s the blue bloods turn to hold their nose when they vote, cause Mitt damn sure ain’t getting the conservative vote if TPTB are supercilious enough to force him on us.

And yes, that means I would prefer a second marxist Obama term to another Republican acting as PR flack and liaison to the marxist left.

If Mittens is enivitable, then Newt can pledge his delegates in return for the VP spot.

One hour after Mitt is sworn in, we impeach and remove him.

I will respect the “no cursing” rule here.

No way through the end of eternity will I EVER vote for Romney. There is no “holding of the nose”. Ain’t gonna happen. I will not vote the enemy into my camp.

Would you be so good as to describe (using Romney's record) the major differences between Romney & Obama?

If you can advocate for Romney, certainly you can defend your choice, right?

Don't bluster and tell us that "it's obvious".

Don't tell us what Romney says.

Tell us all, in plain language, what Romney has done that is vastly different from Obama's positions.

Thanks.

ObamaCare must go. The Supreme Court can't have another pagan Kagan. There will not be any choice but the vote for the (R) whomever. Elections in the past gave us some wiggle room. There is none now. I voted 3rd party twice. No way - no how this next go around.

If I lived in a swing state, I’d vote for whoever the nominee is. But since I live in a solidly red state, it isn’t really necessary for me.

I can’t actively support a Santorum nor Romney candidacy, simply because their values and world views are asynchronous with my own. Whereas I could pour my heart into a Newt candidacy.

That being said, I think Santorum is the weakest of them all for purposes of evicting our radical Kenyan infiltrator from the White House. I just don’t see how someone running on a family values moral agenda schtick is going to effectively mobilize a majority of the electorate to vote in his favor.
