Skip to comments.The Edges Romney Holds Today Will Not Apply In The Fall
Posted on 03/19/2012 5:11:07 PM PDT by Kaslin
Many people may be voting for Mitt Romney because of the view in some quarters that he is the inevitable Republican candidate for president of the United States and the candidate with the best chance of beating Barack Obama, rather than because they actually prefer Romney to the other candidates.
Inevitability has a very unreliable track record. Within living memory, totalitarianism was considered to be "the wave of the future." During the primary season, people should vote for whomever they prefer, on their own merits, not because pundits have pronounced them inevitable.
Regardless of what the polls or the pundits say about Mitt Romney's chances of winning the Republican nomination, the conditions that made him the front-runner in the primaries are the direct opposite of the conditions for the general election.
The biggest single reason why Gov. Romney is the front-runner is that he has had the overwhelming advantage in money spent and in "boots on the ground" running his campaign in states across the country.
Romney has outspent each of his rivals and all of his rivals put together. His campaign organization has been operating for years, and it has put his name on the ballot everywhere, while neither Santorum nor Gingrich had a big enough organization to get on the ballot in an important state like Virginia.
In the general election, President Obama will have all the advantages against Romney that Romney currently has against his Republican rivals. Barack Obama will have boots on the ground everywhere not just members of the Democratic Party organization but thousands of labor union members as well.

inevitable Republican candidate..
while that might be true. It is also true that Romney is the inevitable looser of the general election.
He has used the LDS wealth to kick his middle school buds out of the running...same for HS.
He has used his influence and money to win delegates despite the fact he is disliked by the majority.
Frick the majority of Republicans and conservatives.
Romney sees himself as the man of the future...the man of the details of the process (not the spirit or heart thereof).
He has not won the heart of the GOP...nor has he won its Spirit.
Of course...he doesn't care. He doesn't understand "heart" or "spirit"...that's not the nature of his "religion."
His religion requires that he force himself on new converts...that they be quickly and thoroughly brainwashed!
Of course not.
As old as mankind itself.
Well, no...not that either.
Romney's core is hidden from us because it is also hidden from Romney.
Ask Romney why he wants to be president...and you find he doesn't really know. His father wanted it...like a mountain peak, it's there...his church is persecuted (wrongly or maybe rightly)...
Romney wants it because he wants it. Don't dig for the truth...he doesn't.
I leave it to you to decide if Romney is better than Obama. They are both very, very bad...
So must we choose the devil we know versus the one we don't?
Must we choose between devils?
The Establishment is betting that conservatives will rally around Romney by default because the Obama Administration is so destructive. That may be true, but it’s very short-sighted. What if Romney is elected President? He will have no core of fervent supporters because he has no core of beliefs, other than his own ambition.
Don't know exactly what you mean here.
But most likely Romney wasn't the richest kid in his high school or junior high.
It was a rich kid's school.
Romney used his vast financial resources to kill off any competitors (10:1) before the real fight began.
Of course the REAL fight is the presidential campaign...and Romney's LDS money is paltry in that war.
But then Romney is not thinking of the country...he is thinking of himself and the LDS.
Of course, then Romney went to BYU and got his Mormon indoctrination...and there he established his "white horse" legacy.
Thomas Sowell for president.
Mitt. Its time you quit!
Your credibility isnt worth spit.
RINOs, the Establishment, and Democrats all agree,
But in the General Election, to Obama theyll flee.
Against Obama, liberals and moderates know youll lose.
But conservatives, Romney theyll never choose.
Mitt, our loyalty you cant buy.
Back to Massachusetts, youd better fly.
Just like Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, and John McCain,
Nominee Willard Mitt Romney will result in the same.
As a Governor, your record isnt that great.
Out of 50 states, your popularity was number 48.
Your experience, the Establishment types tout.
Defending federal bailouts and FDIC loan forgiveness will find you out.
Democrats and RINOs cower from their liberal wives,
Supporting Romney with nothing but lies.
In 1994 Ted Kennedy showed Willard to be a great bane,
With Mitts Bain, and Bain Capital, Obama will do the same.
Damon Corp, with Romney paid $119 million in a fine.
Yet Willard says, for his leadership, its time.
He claims jobs he can create and taxes he can lower,
47th out of 50 in growth he rates. Can it get any slower?
$740.5 million dollars a year, fees and taxes under Mitt increased.
Will the half-truths and lies from Romney ever cease?
For Liberty and Freedom, we dont need Flakes,
But Romney says Healthcare responsibilities belong to the States.
Conservatives stand for Self-responsibility, Self-accountability, and Self-reliance.
But against these things, Willards actions scream in defiance.
Establishment Republicans thinks Romney can help take back the Senate,
But they know that for President, Mitt can NOT win it.
Like everything the Establishment Republicans try to do,
It leads to failure, and we get the bill, as well as the screw.
In their corruption, little change do they seek,
They dont want our Freedom to peak.
Their craving for power has pushed their bravery,
To ignore our Constitution, and sell us into economical slavery.
So Willard, dont lecture us on the need for patience and compromise.
Romney, be selfless. Conservatism is on the rise.
Choosing the lesser of two evils, isnt what we desire.
You let them rewrite the language. Wheres your fire?
Romney, they accuse us falsely, and you do little.
Wheres your response, or can you only twiddle?
Mitt, you dont have what it takes to lead.
So with you I plead.
Do you really want to go from Obama-care to Romney-care?
With you, this nation will pull out its hair!
Go somewhere and quietly think and sit.
Know your own limitations! Mitt. Its time you quit!
