He is twice wrong. Romney is the PROVEN loser,
and PROVEN-bad Governor (which is why he claims
he is from ‘outside’ gov’t).

You got someone else we can vote for? Conservatives have lost in the bid for a Presidential candidate. Its time to start thinking about 2016.

Move on or prepare for another 4 years of BO.

I don’t like Romney. At all. That being said, if Romney is the Republican nominee against Obama I will vote for Romney. We can primary him in 2016. But we cannot, if we love this country, allow Obama to be re-elected. If Obama ran against an old sock I’d campaign like crazy for that sock.

Romney is awful; but can you imagine an unfettered Obama, who will likely get to pick TWO MORE Supremes next term?

Time to grow up and stop acting like children. Until Conservatives control the GOP we will continue to have the candidates the current establishment wants.

I agree. Bad as Romney might be, another Obama term is an unimaginable nightmare. Besides Supreme Court picks, in every other sphere of his Presidency, he will no longer care about re-election. Inasmuch as he was already a brazen commie bastard when he was facing re-election, it boggles the mind to think about what he’d do in a second term. G-d help us and save America!

You seem to be sending out contradictory messages here, on the one hand you proclaim that "conservatives have lost in the bid for a Presidential candidate" inferring that everyone should just go on and vote for ORomney. Then you state "Its time to start thinking about 2016", which suggests that you are either conceding that 0bama will hand Mitt-Witt's ass to him on a platter, OR you are suggesting that if Romney somehow pulls off a win this November, that conservatives should be looking to dislodge him as the GOP nominee in 2016, which would be a nearly insurmountable task.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: 0bama is pouring socialism down America's throat, and if Romney wins, we still get it poured down our throat, but it will be with exquisite crystal goblets, befitting someone of Romney's "stature" (laugh-chuckle-spit).

As disgusting and distasteful as the prospect may be, America is only half way through it's bout of socialist food poisoning, 0bama is very likely going to win a second term if Romney is the nominee, and 2016 WILL be the year (assuming America survives) that conservatives will need to do what was done in 1980, identify, support and nominate a TRUE American conservative in the mold of Ronald Reagan, and take back the GOP from the big government statists and 'Rat enablers.

Give your head a shake pal, you would be trying to deny an incumbent President the nomination of his own party after 4 years? You talk about "primary'ing" him in 2016, that's not like some RINO Congressman from some podunk district somewhere, you're talking about the incumbent power of the Presidency, so you can go on and believe that little fantasy you've got going, but don't expect the rest of us to buy into that crap, ok?

Maybe we should start a campaign...

Vote for ought-six's old sock

The SOB in office needs to go.

I think it's OK to squabble about the candidates during the primary but after that we need to do everything we can to rid this country of the race baiting, class warfare inciting, economic and job killing moron we have now.

Exactly correct. A choice between the Devil and his right-hand man isn’t much of a choice.

Secondly, if our current GOP-e group is anything like the ‘we need MORE Republicans in Congress’ we’re doomed anyway. Where’s the leadership these days??

No matter how you slice it, the Republic is going down with help from BOTH sides, but most here will argue it’s better to hold your nose for ‘our’ guy(s), so they’ll feel better when the bottom finally does drop out from underneath everyone.

I say, enjoy your sh!t sandwich, I’m not bellying-up to the bar.

Interesting...how could anyone who looked at 0's past think he would turn out different? You're right - Simmons drank the "cool, a black president!" Kool-Aid.

The really scary part is, there are still those out there that do not see (after this train wreck) that 0 was the wrong choice. There are still those who contend that the troubles we face today as a country are still the fault of George W. Bush and 0 still needs more time to fix it.

Well said - Obama has got to go. Like Bush's second term, it will be up to Talk Radio and grassroots activism to keep Romney honest. Fiscally he will likely make us proud as an experienced businessman who appreciates efficiency.

But eating one's words is not uncommon when making political predictions.

“You seem to be sending out contradictory messages here,”

Not at all. If you want a conservative candidate for 2016 then you need to start working on it now. Running home and hiding under the bed won’t change anything.

For 2012 you can only pick from the 2 crappy choices available. Unless you can think of a way to keep mittens from getting the GOP nomination.

IMO another 4 years of BO will be the end of America.

To: driftdiver; All
Ok, let's proceed based on your presumption that voting for Romney might (that's BIG 'might') stop 0bama.

January 20, 2013 - Mitt Witt takes the Oath of Office, the Romney Presidency begins.

Now we have no idea what sort of global, regional, domestic, and economic situations that a President Romney will face. If he is reasonably successful in reversing the course that 0bama set our Nation upon, what will your argument be for dislodging Romney as the 2016 GOP nominee? "Ohhhh you weren't conservative enough?". As the incumbent President, it is going to take more than conservative angst and disgust to prevent the GOP from renominating Romney at the convention in 2016. Surely you know that?

Add in the inevitable resistance to your 'primary'ing' idea, after enduring 4 years of extreme left radical 'Rats in control of the Executive branch, the Senate, and partially the House, what sort of candidate is going to be convinced to take on a sitting President that is going to appear to be making progress in undoing what 0bama and his fellow 'Rats have done? (that's assuming Romney actually does that)

In 1976, it was a remarkable conservative, i.e., Governor Ronald Reagan who chose to take on Gerald Ford who defined 'RINO' perfectly, and yet even the Gipper fell short of superceding Ford as the nominee that year. It will take another candidate of true Reagan-like credentials in 2016 and if Romney is even marginally competent in the White House, it isn't likely that he would be denied the nomination for a second term.

And this isn't about "running home and hiding under the bed", it is about facing the reality of our political situation.

Don't delude yourself: if Romney is the nominee, you will have the choice of 'Socialism-Marxism' vs 'Socialism-Lite' in the voting booth. Both candidates are big government statists, both candidates are anti-Second Amendment, 0bama is pro-abortion, Romney is so wishy-washy on the subject, he might as well be, having sucked up to NARAL in 2002 for their support.

So the real question for you and every sane American is:

Do you want 4 more years of a radical Socialist, or do you want *EIGHT* years of a 'compassionate statist Socialist'?

The only possible saving grace to choosing Romney (oh my gawd I can't believe I'm saying this) is that he APPEARS not to be prone to acting as a subservient toady to Moscow and giving the farm away to the Russians as is 0bama via Medvedev to Putin.

Even that is one helluva small fig leaf.

It's the same choice as selecting salmonella over botulism. Either way, conservatives are going to be sick as Hell for either 4 years, or 8 years.

And don't put words in my mouth Sparky, 0bama was never a 'valid alternative' but there was never sufficient momentum within the federal judiciary to overcome the resistance to what is arguably, a totally invalid regime. Even alleged 'conservatives' right here on FR established a cottage industry of trashing FReepers who cited 0bama's ineligibility to serve as POTUS, but that's another story.

Now that 'utopia' comment of yours is what appears to be classic projection, if you really think conservatives are going to be able to deny a hypothetical 'President Romney' renomination in 2016.

It is clear to me that you have not thought this through.

I reiterate: you haven’t thought this all the way through at all. Eight years of socialism ‘lite’ under Romney or four more years of hard core socialism under 0bama.

You don’t get it do you? It isn’t about 0bama being a ‘better choice’, it’s about avoiding a WORSE choice over a longer period of time in which the same old big statist, big government advocates are destroying our Constitution and our Country.

Let’s bring JimRob in on this and see what he has to say.

I know that Jim, however it seems that some posters need a wake up call around here, there is no way in Hell that I'm going to vote for Mitt-Witt, and the reasons should be obvious to anyone with a couple of neurons to spark together.

Romney is NOT a conservative, and any individual who supports and/or votes for Romney is likewise, NOT a conservative, and voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for EVIL.

That ain't happenin' with me, and I stand with you.

Thanks.
