Conservatives Continue to Resist Mitt 'Anyone But Obama' Romney
Breitbart ^ | April 8, 2012 | Susan Berry

Posted on 04/09/2012 5:44:44 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

If you have not been a supporter of Mitt Romney’s since the start of the GOP primary campaign, you may be one of those stubborn conservatives, those obstinate Tea Partiers, or those recalcitrant Constitutionalists, who are yet refusing to commit to Gov. Romney at this midpoint of the nomination race. Perhaps you are tired of hearing words like “coalesce,” “electable,” “inevitable,” and “presumptive,” and phrases like, “It’s time to get behind Mitt,” or “We really have to decide so we can ‘focus on’ Obama.”

Romney is not a conservative, he is not even right of center.

We lost time hoping instead of doing.

We've been laying the foundations of a new principled, practical Reaganite conservative party since the nomination of John Judas McCain.

America's Party

If Romney gets the nomination, this conservative will support him and vote for him.

Cicero, maybe something good could come of all this. If Romney loses maybe, just maybe, he will take the Republican Party with him. And conservatives would have the opportunity to build a party that represents us.

We would have to go against the juggernaut that is the Democrat Party, but at least we will have a constituency that agrees with each others and an honest, conservative message to take into our campaigns.

"Why is it they always come up with every other reason conservatives don’t like Romney but the truth? He’s a liberal democrat whose socialist goals are so similar to Obama’s that we don’t see there is a choice between them.

Romney is not just a nice guy who fought hard and survived a grueling primary season. He’s a socialist who pretends to be conservative in order to fool people into voting for him. He’s not just a boring candidate who doesn’t know how to inspire people. He’s a socialist who is responsible on as state scale for many of the things Obama is trying to do nationally. Romney has already achieved in Massachusetts what Obama is attempting to achieve across the nation. Romney’s accomplished history is an Obama future. On top of that, his people have made statements casting doubt on any promises conservatives might have liked, such as eliminating Obamacare.

Somehow we just can’t get excited about a future of $50.00 or free abortions, weapons bans, free cars and free car insurance to welfare recipients, gay marriage and promotion of the gay agenda, cap and tax, activist liberal judges, mandates, executive orders, hatred of conservatives, conservative ideas and conservative candidates, as well as any number of other socialist policies. Top all of that off with the fact that he’s a lying phony and you have the real reason Mitt has trouble with conservatives."

Well said.

Actually you’re right but who to vote for this election? At least we are trying to take back the country from the established politicians!

And, there is still plenty of time to put a lot more principled patriots on the ballot for most offices.

Folks who think the formerly grand old party is the only game in town simply don’t know the rules.

If the Republicans and the Democrats are only offering candidates who won’t keep their oaths of office, run someone else.

Ah yes, absolutely for lower offices. We can and will overtake the corrupt party eventually but it will take time and unfortunately this election is about whether Obama continues to decimate America.

The Presidential election is to be taken apart from the Tea Party efforts - out of necessity. We do have to save the country first.

I’m with you. Allowing Obama a second term is close to treason.

Mittens is a damn dummycrat and is NOT a Republican. It’s a disgrace to have this pro-homosexual lifestyle, pro-abortion, pro-high taxes, pro-liberal judge appointment, pure phony in our party. Why didn’t he run against Obummer in a democratic primary and leave us the hell alone?

We are absolutely screwed big time if this turncoat liar takes the top of our ticket.

Levin and the rest will all fall in line and attempt to convince all to elect another liberal, and once again, you’ll be told you have no choice.

Bush's second term was the end for me.

We've needed a second party for many years.

What are you talking about? The Republicans have already thrown the presidential election. All bets are now off.

One of the big picture items that is overlooked by many is this: Thirty or forty years ago, the ranks of the Republican Party were swelled by the “Silent Majority”, the “Values Voters”—social conservatives who began to be active politically. The result was a renewal, a resurgence of the Republican Party.

If this election results in a Romney vs. Obama standoff, then these social conservatives have nowhere to go. The result may be an exodus of the values voters from the Republican Party, with the Party being once again a minority party centered in the Northeast.

It’s really not that far-fetched a possibility.

No worries. No way does Romney win in November, and the singular upside is.. we`ll be rid of that POS on the political scene once and for all.

Romney is NOT going to be president of the USA. He was never intended to win
