Republicans Brace For The Romney Pivot (Stabbed in the Back)
BuzzFeed ^ | April 5, 2012 | Ben Smith

Posted on 04/05/2012 9:52:00 AM PDT by C19fan

The moment will probably come in the early fall of 2012: Ultra-conservative House Republicans will draw a clear line in the sand, and Mitt Romney will have to choose whether to stand with them, or stand against them. Romney quieted conservative complaints last month by embracing Paul Ryan’s budget and its deep spending cuts. Now President Obama has already begun to cast the plan, and the candidate, as “radical.” Many conservatives are quietly resigned to the expectation that their candidate will betray them, likely in the fall as he pivots toward the center. And some Republican strategists are already urging Romney to make that public break with his party’s conservative Washington leaders, who are as unpopular with the broad electorate as they are beloved by the conservative base.

Will anybody be surprised when this happens? So much for the claims by Romneybots that conservative Congress can rein in Willard. Willard will be THE leader of the GOP and it will be him that will force the GOP Congress to tow his line.

How is this possible? I have been (written) yelled at, called names, mocked......or whatever
(yep on FR)
because I have said Romney is a fraud and not a conservative.

Romney is no different than BHO in governance.

Romney is now and has always been a liberal.

Is it who he is, it is what he does.

actually I don't care what people think of me, Romney is a stink'n liberal.

This is the reason that if Romney is the nominee, I will NOT vote for him.

I would rather have Obama who would clearly be in opposition to the House (and hopefully Senate) than Romney who will use the power of the Presidency and the GOP party to try and force his “Moderate” (Dem lite) policies on to the American people. If Romney is President, then the GOP will tear itself apart fighting conservatives in the House against the RINO president.

Clarity is better than Consensous and right now, on the issues that matter to me, there is very little difference between Obama and Romney.

Please, let us have a brokered convention and floor fight so we have a CHANCE at bringing a conservative both fiscal and social to the nomination and get the party motivated.

Everyone knows he will revert. If he does so, in a big way, prior to the election, he will have no chance of beating Obama.

Romney plans to win by snapping up moderate democrats disillusioned by BO & to hell with the 'right wing'.

What he clearly doesn't understand is there is no such thing as a moderate democrat anymore. BO's constituency is bought and paid for.

Something Romney's secret admirers on FR apparently missed, as well.

This campaign team would be crazy to go moderate. The country has moved right, and virtually every election since 2009 is proof. The independents are sharing the opinions of the conservative movement. If Mitt moves left, Obama will move right on several issues like he did with McCain and he will win. Mitt only wins if he runs as a fairly conservative guy.

He’s campaigning for the GOP nomination right now... (must be conservative)

Then, he’ll campaign for the presidency... (must be moderate)

Then (if he wins), he’ll govern... (must get reelected)

Obama isn't the enemy, the Democrat party isn't the enemy -- LIBERALISM is the enemy. Obama and Democrats are liberal, however, therefore a vote for either is a vote for the enemy. A vote for Romney is ALSO a vote for the enemy.

Chicken Littles shriek that we couldn't survive another four years of Obama. Yet there are so many dynamics at play, especially if conservatism grew more powerful in the Republican party in the next four years (highly probable if Obama won by a plurality), that we really can only guess at what four more years of Obama would bring.

On the other hand, it's certain that four years of Romney in the White House would make liberalism more powerful in both parties.

Voting for Romney is surrendering to liberalism out of fear, desperation, and panic. Fear, desperation, and panic have been making people do stupid things since the beginning of time. COURAGE is the path to victory; having the courage to reject surrendering our party to liberalism at the risk facing down Obama for the next four years, is the only chance we have at victory.

Really?

When did he jump from 600+ electoral votes to 1144?

I must have missed the state primary that added 400+ delegates to his delegate count.

How about you stuff your Romney support where the sun don't shine.

Ref post #3.

Willard Mitt Romney cannot become president of the U.S. because his father, George, was born a Mexican citizen and never became a U.S. citizen, ever, although he (George) managed to fake his way into becoming Governor of Mass.

Willard can no more become U.S. president than Panama Juan, the illegal cheeky Kenyan bastard, Rubio, or I. He is not a “natural born citizen” as the rest of us I just mentioned above.

Unless you folks start working on this in the U.S., you are going to find yourselves in equally bad trouble exchanging the bastard for Willard.

Read the following:

“MITT ROMNEY IS NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN!”

Wrong. Now people need to decide whether they're voting for surrendering the Republican party to liberalism, or voting to preserve the Republican party's brand as an antidote to liberalism.

Obama isn't the enemy -- liberalism is the enemy. A vote for Obama OR Romney is a vote for the enemy.

Why do people like you keep pretending he's not the nominee? I know there's some remaining bean counting to be done, but the reality is he's the nominee.

What do you hope to accomplish but pretending there's still a chance somebody else will be the nominee?

I really don't get it. Can you explain what option you think remains?

Well shoot, why don't we all just curl up in the corner than and accept the inevitable defeat of Romney to Obama.

You may want to play the role of Neville Chamberlin, but I think I am going to stick with the attitude and Spirit of Churchill.

By the way, are you planning on voting for that lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal Mitt Romney if he is the nominee?

George Romney was a citizen. His parents moved to Mexico to practice polygamy, they never relinquished their US citizenship.
John McCain’s citizenship has been investigated to death. his parents were citizens and he was born on a military base/hospital.
Rubio is a citizen. He was born in FL and his parents were naturalized citizens when he was born.
I do not know for sure about BHO, way to much contradictory information.

Because until he meets the requirement, he is not - period. Until Romney reaches the require number of delegates - he is not. In fact, we are reaching the point where there are not enough state delagates LEFT IN PLAY, for him to lock up the nomination.

I am NOT fighting for or advocating that anyone else will lock up the nomination. I am fighting for a brokered convention where NO ONE has the nomination locked up.

My options are:

  1. Vote for the liberal douchebag shoesalesman who will most likely stay the course on most social issues and may (or may not) reduce taxes to try to get the economy rolling again.
  2. Vote for the America-hating Marxist who will step up the pace of his efforts to turn our country into a failed European-style Marxist state, before plunging it (and the entire world) into complete fiscal collapse in preparation for the envisioned global Marxist state that he hopes will rise from the ashes a few decades from now.
  3. Remove myself from the process by voting for an insignificant third party candidate or staying home on election day and letting others pick for me.

Reluctantly, I'll have to vote for option one. Which one are you going to vote for?

Gee, some choice a white obama or the black obama, both liberal.

I find this story laughable in a way. Like those pitiful few conservatives in the House/Senate thought Romney was going to actually stand with them. Their own colleagues in the GOP won’t even stand with conservatives.

The Party Boys, Boehner/McConnell could care less how Romney campaigns or governs as long as they get their time at the $$$ trough.

Conservatives are taken for granted blacks of the Republican party. We are courted, invited in with winks and platitudes but never given any positions of power and if we get uppity we are shown the door.

OK, reasonable enough.

I agree that that would be as good an outcome as we could get right now. I also think the NY Mets winning the World Series this year would be great. I just don't see a glimmer of a chance that either will happen. Seriously, not a chance of a chance.

It won't be two weeks before Santorum is out of the race. Gingrich will hang around, but only because he promised he would hang around, and he's angling for something that isn't the nomination. Could be SOS or could just be higher speaking fees in the future.

For the record, I live in NJ. Whenever the hell this primary train rolls into my state, I'll be voting for Gingrich, mostly because he's not Romney.

But I know its just a protest vote. That's all I've ever had in a presidential primary.

IF it is Romney vs. Obama, I will vote for a third party candidate in order to dilute the percentage vote count for whichever liberal wins, Romney or Obama. I will do my part to make it so the winner only wins by a plurality and thus is rightly perceived as WEAK.

I take it that you will let your fear of Obama make you vote to surrender the Republican party to liberalism.

During the general elections we are going to witness the most outrageous flip flops by Romney on almost all the conservative positions that he took during the primaries. The man has no principles and no core believes… it is that simple.

Having said that, for the Republicans and Conservatives living in battleground states that will make or break the elections one way or another, it is strongly advisable that you vote for Romney despite everything because he is still better than Obama (yeah hold your nose and vote for Romney). For those who are living in states that are going to be certainly won by the Romney or certainly to be won by Obama then you have the luxury not to vote for President but make sure you vote for the Republicans candidates for Congress because even if Obama is re-elected if the Republicans keep the House and hopefully win the Senate than they would greatly limit the damage that Obama would create.

Social Issues—when you say staying the course does that mean continuing to support Planned Parenthood, global warming, forcing Catholic hospitals to violate their faith by providing contraception, gay marriage, etc.?

Reduce taxes-—is that part of the plan where Romney defines the “rich” at $200k for capital gains, vs. Zero who defines the line $50k higher at $250k?...or is it where Romney wants to tie minimum wage to cost of living?

So, you're both deciding to opt out of the election, by casting votes that will have absolutely zero effect on the outcome.

I went that way once myself. Voted Libertarian, rather than for GHW Bush's reelection, because he raised taxes. For the next eight years, I had to live with the fact that I did my part to foist Bill Clinton on the country.

Leave the election to others, if that's your wish. Maybe it'll work out well.

I am trying to weigh my vote this Fall. I want Obama out but I don’t like Romney. If Obama is expected to win, I will be casting my vote for a 3rd party cause I am so sick of this “to get along, you go along” and the Eastern Establishment mentality.

While I am no fan of Mitt’s this statement is very troublesome.

While Mitt may be Odumbo in white face, I know of nothing in Mitt’s past which would indicate he shares Odumbo’s hatred of the USA, our Constitution and hatred of all the white citizens.

Yes, Mitt sure seems to be a RINO but he is NOT a Marxist like the current infestation in the White Hut.

In that case, while the GOP has slipped us the big weenie, Mitt is still head and shoulders above Odumbo and certainly more experienced in both the Public and Private sectors.

Wrong again, FRiend -- your libertarian vote that gave us Clinton played an important role for the good -- pat yourself on the back for having the courage to vote what your instincts told you was smart, because it DID lead to a later victory.

You did your part in making sure that Clinton won with only 42 percent of the vote (I voted for GHW -- I have voted straight Republican ticket since I began voting 35-plus years ago -- I have never voted for a Democrat, and not even a third party except in local races), and I think that number played an important role in the Republican revolution in Congress that followed. Had you NOT voted, Clinton's percentage would have been higher and that "revolution" less powerfully motivated; had you voted for GHW, it would have "confirmed" that voters wanted the Republican party to be more liberal.

The ONLY way to bring the Republican party to the right, is to vote such that liberal Republicans lose. It is THE ONLY WAY. In retrospect, I think you voted smarter than I did in that election.

Those of us who vote to reject surrendering the Republican party to liberalism even if it risks keeping Obama with MUCH much weaker support, WILL have an outcome on the election in that we reduce the liklihod that the winner will be able to claim majority support of the people.

Your tagline -- make a closer inspection of Romney's past, both in government and in the private sector. Your tagline hails Romney -- America can only become the USSR with Republican cooperation, and that IS ROMNEY.

I will vote to fight and weaken the real enemy: liberalism. Even if my candidate (whoever it happens to be -- Pat Paulsen, for all I know!) loses, my vote will have served to weaken the victory of which ever socialist, Romney or Obama, wins.

How do I deal with ignorance…I will try…..

“George Romney was a citizen. His parents moved to Mexico to practice polygamy, they never relinquished their US citizenship.”

That does not mean one rass. George was born in Mexico which made him a Mexican citizen whether you like it or not. That is Mexican law as well as U.S. law.

“John McCain’s citizenship has been investigated to death. His parents were citizens and he was born on a military base/hospital.”

Panama Juan was born in Colon, Republic of Panama, in a Panamanian hospital (Colon Hospital). He is not a natural-born citizen. He is a dual citizen. He lied in his lying book. Where have you been for all these years?

“Rubio is a citizen. He was born in FL and his parents were citizens when he was born.”

His parents were NOT American citizens at the time of his birth. They were still Cuban citizens. Therefore, he is not a natural-born citizen. He was an anchor baby. Where have you been for all these years?

“I do not know for sure about BHO, way to much contradictory information.”

At first I thought you were only ignorant. I now realize you are stupid.

Ignorance is salvageable. Stupidity is forever.

You certainly are entitled to your opinion and I would encourage anyone to PUSH and PUSH hard for their candidate in the Primary.

Once the primary dust has settled, unless you liked the outcome of voting for a 3rd party when Clinton ran you might want to rethink throwing your important vote away.

“Weakening the victory”? Sorry, don’t think for one minute Odumbo or Mitt gives a rats behind if they win/lose by one more or less vote. You will have sent NO message whatsoever.

I detest how left leaning the GOP has become and that is the reason the Tea Party did so well.

Too bad the Tea Party has been so relatively silent (no not completely silent) during the primary. This was the chance to pull the GOP to the right and that opportunity was lost.

In any event, if you and too many others go 3rd party you will guarantee a self avowed hater of the USA will win re-election.

Even if we do a better job in the House and Senate, this criminal in the White Hut feels he is free to do end runs around congress and the courts. With affirmative action Holder in the DOJ just who the hell will stop Odumbo the muslim? AS CIC, and controlling the various departments relating to enforcement, just who will arrest him?

It certainly will not be the USSC as I don’t think they have guns under those robes. The bull dyke head of DHS? No! Would the military under Planetta save us? NO!

Once Odumbo the messiah does not have to face another election I do not see any mechanism in government to reign him in. Impeachment? Congress has to do it. Think they will?

Romneycare vs Obamacare ... not enough difference to tell them apart. The same can be said for a number of other issues such as abortion, gun control, the role and size of government.

Once Odumbo the messiah does not have to face another election I do not see any mechanism in government to reign him in. Impeachment? Congress has to do it. Think they will?

Frankly, I have to hope they will, and/or that some other event would come to pass, yes, to minimize Obama's recklessness. Looking into the future that way it's best to consider a likely spectrum. No matter what the MSM says, the reality is that most Americans are pretty sick of government and consider Obama a crappy president.

That's a truth to be factored in reckoning an Obama future. If enough vote ABOOR (Anybody but Obama or Romney) instead of staying home, the percentage of Obama's plurality would be pitiful. He'd be even more despised than he is now, and he is despised by many. Most, more than likely.

Clinton got what, 43 percent? And what came next? The Republican revolution in Congress. You think that would have happened if he'd won with 52 percent?

I wish you would stop looking behind you at Obama, and start looking in front of you at Romney. Better a despised self-avowed hater of the USA win without my vote, than a Republican despiser and defier of consevative principles, win with it.

That guy, because of fear of Obama, would have conservatives' sanction to do all the same damage as Obama. Romney is a liberal. He will ignore conservatives in the party and liberal Repubicans will be calming conservatives down, reminding them that moderates are the reason Republicans are in the White House at all.

Eyes wide open -- take a break from fixating on what you intend to vote "against," and start giving honest consideration of what you WOULD be voting FOR.

A deal with the devil has consequences. I think it's probably a lot smarter to pass on that deal.
