Romney Wins -yeah
no source | today | Self

Posted on 04/03/2012 7:10:44 PM PDT by Dogbert41

Just saw Romney's acceptance speech. Just when you though America couldn't get in the stuff any deeper.

How utterly sad that this is the best we can come up with.

I mostly try to ignore the MSM. I never look at FOX anymore. I stopped listening to Rush since Bloody Thursday (01-26-2012) and all local news. I get most of my information from FR.

I am much more calm not getting worked up listening to all the media blathering fools, including Rushbo.

I listened to Rush since the late 80's and like most fools he will always think voting R is the best.

Well, I am very much at peace knowing that I will not be casting a vote for a hard-core Statist who absolutely loathes Conservatives (that's mitt in case some people are wondering -lol)

I pray to God every night that He guides and inspires enough good people that when called upon they can lead the effort to restore our Republic to a strict Constitutional foundation.

I have the utmost faith that no matter the damage by the evil left and the arrogant elitist GOP-e, enough good people will stand ready and willing to do the hard work to right the wrongs that have been foisted upon our Republic by those who worship at the alter of State Power.

For those who are weak and feel that Mitt would be better than Obama, know this. Mitt worships at the alter of State Power.

I am really disappointed in the Republican electorate this year. I started out hoping that Sarah would run. When that did not happen IMHO Newt emerged as the best choice for me. That is not going to be the case.

Looks like Mitt is it and far down on the list of choices in my mind. Then you look at what Obama has done the past couple of weeks. It is so bad that it looks like I will go ahead and vote for Mitt. I had really thought about by passing voting for President if Mitt was the choice. However Obama has made up my mind for he. He is a total unmitigated disaster. Unfortunately Mitt it is.

It’s amazing given the desperate state of the Country that our choices for President are so weak and so limited.

Yeah it's over, the big states are voting soon and liberal NY and CA will damn near put Romney over the top. And he'll win other lib states who are guaranteed locks for Obama.

I really had hope Rick would win IL and was let down as I always am in this rotten state.

It is an amazing descent. Two/three years ago, with the combined advent of Palin and the whole Tea Party movement, it was the first time since the 1980s and the era of Reagan that I really had a glimmer of optimism about the country’s future. Talk about dashed to hell! The GOP-e and Romney have really turned everything into a bottomless pit. I’ve gone from being totally energized to not being remotely invested in anything going on. Become more of a distant spectator, idlely bemused by the entire, farcical demolition-derby of an election year, while the country continues its swirling demise.

The guy I voted for Congress in the new 3rd which Lipinski runs, is named Richard Grabowski. Not only was I assured by FReepers he is a conservative and not a member of the Combine. But he was also on the ballot as a delegate for Rick Santorum. So even though it is a long shot in the 3rd which is Saudi Arabia West. He is getting my full support.

He won the nomination big time too. So there is some hope!!!

Well, shoot — he’s got a new heart. Let’s see how his new ticker works — maybe it will give him a real boost. He’s only 71.

I’m proud to have worked at the hospital/heart center where he was treated ... wish I was still there.

You know, you can look at the Wisconsin results and see he is STILL not the favored candidate. He really SHOULD get out.

He “wins” all the liberal states that WILL go to Obama in the general, while he LOSES the conservative states that we could have had.

He WILL lose in the general election — and we will be stuck with 4 more years of hell.

Then ... out of the blue, to save us all ...will come ...JEB!!!

Except judging by Gary Johnson's lack of charisma in the debates, even the Libertarians managed to pick probably their worst possible candidate. Guess we'll have to see who that Americans Elect party comes up with.

“Lots of people are uncomfortable with Mormon beliefs”

Hey, I don’t mind Mormons or anyone believing in any religion.

But, when we have a Mormon as president it means we will have a former Mormon bishop who believes there are many “gods” out there, that if he is good enough he will become a “god” to rule his own planet with many wives.

Check out so called Prophet Joseph Smith’s revelation that a Mormon would one day become president of the United States:

“The White Horse Prophecy is a statement purported to have been made in 1843 by Joseph Smith, Jr., founder of the Latter Day Saint movement, regarding the future of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) and the United States of America. ... The prophecy further predicts that the United States Constitution will one day “hang like a thread” and will be saved “by the efforts of the White Horse”.[1]

“Some have speculated, on the basis of the White Horse Prophecy, that Mormons expect the United States to eventually become a theocracy dominated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).”

Sarah Palin would have run(At least I think she would have) if the establishment wouldn’t have made it virtually impossible for her to win. They would have thrown everything and the kitchen sink at her had she run. She even said herself that the establishment wouldn’t have let her in, and as long as the RINO establishment exists this is the garbage we have to deal with

As much as I loathe Romney(Oh and trust me I loathe the guy) I will never ever ever ever vote for Obama, I won’t vote for someone who wants to turn the country that I love into Greece. I won’t live in Greece, I just won’t do it. I keep on being asked by people “Will I vote for Romney?” and I just keep on saying “What am I supposed to do” I just don’t know what else to do, if this is who the GOP decides is the nominee what more can I do, sit home? Vote 3rd party” Either option is ensuring an Obama win and I just can’t do it

Exactly Sarah, its anybody but obama for me, if its Mitt, I will back him 100% His speech tonight was very good.
From all the Eeyore attitudes here it looks like many will be sitting it out since they cant support Romney, as you mentioned, that is the same as voting for Obama. Time to come to grips or at least find a way to try.

My original choice was Sarah Palin of course, but she’s not running, so my second choice was Newt, for whatever reason the GOP just isn’t voting for him. He is a guy I could get behind 100 percent. With Romney, he is a slick oil’s salesman, phony to the core, but if this is what the establishment wants, what more can I do? I live in California, far left looney bin, this state goes to Obama no matter what, but I still go out and vote. I could never sit at home, even if it means voting for a guy that I hate, I will do it, because having Obama for another 4 years, is something that we cannot allow to happen. How Obama has attacked our Supreme Court these last two days, this is what he wants to do to our country, destroy it bit by bit, no way in hell do I stay home, sit back, and allow that POS to win

The blame goes to Santorum and Santorum bots. As long as Herman Cain and even Michele Bachmann were in the race, the message was about the economy and it seemed like Herman Cain could beat Obama. It caused panic in the Establishment.

Then the idiot Rick Santorum of the Karl Rove establishment who is a fiscal socialist and who is absolutely clueless about economics changed the course of the debate to issues like condoms, homosexuality and abortion. I guess that is his comfort zone, but it has damaged the TEA Party.

Santorum had the support of Mark Levin to shepherd some unthinking sheep his way. They must take the blame for the sad state of affairs.
