I disagree with those who say Romney will be worse than Obama.

Romney has already signed on Robert Bork to advise him on judicial appointments and Constitutional matters.

Obama has given us Kagan and Sotomayor and lots of other evil leftist judges.

That alone is a huge difference in favor of Romney over Obama.

Can you give a source for that, please?

Why would he need to showboat by "signing on" a rejected judge who's okay with gun control when he could have the whole Federalist Society at his disposal?

"Romney has already signed on Robert Bork to advise him.."

Romney ought to appoint Robert Bork again - to hell with the left and their kangaroo-courts.

I had not seen that before.
We cannot afford to have Obama and his leftist goons
in for four more years PERIOD.
If that means voting for Romney and doing what ever we
can to hold HIS feet to the fire, so be it.

If we can hold the Congress and take the senate,
Romney will have to jump to our tune anyway.

I don’t like it but sometimes you have to go to war
with the army you have.

I know my friends here are principled and I am glad
of it, we fight for conservative ideals all of us.
I just can’t see letting intrusive socialism continue
to have a strangle hold on our government a minute
longer than we have to.
Every minute Obama remains in power, freedom suffers.
Then too, the judicial branch will only take one
or two appointments to be flipped into a statist
rubber stamp. We can’t have that!

I'm with you rogue yam.

Hillary already said she's out as Sec of State second term. With nothing to lose Obama will use a recess appointment to appoint the head of CAIR in her place, or other such bullish**.

Oh really? In what official capacity? More likely, Bork is meant to be a name that Romney-bots can point to in the effort to paint their guy as a conservative.

All one needs to do is look at Romney's record of appointing judges in Massachusetts. He appointed leftists.

Here is your GOP nominee. Have fun defending him, 'cause I won't...

While I am for ABO, Romney is a bitter horse pill to swallow.

Both are pro-abortion, anti-RKBA, and pro-"healthcare" (mandated State 'insurance'--state mandated expenditures just because you exist--and ultimately, the determination of whether you will be allowed to continue existing).

I just can't vote for anyone who is against Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness, and I really don't give a d@mn what letter trails their name.

From the judicial aspect, Romney has had the opportunity to appoint conservatives to the bench. How well did that work out?

It was bad enough when there was a clear lesser evil to vote for, but now it has become obvious to me that the two sides (D, R) of the same (ever thinner) coin have sold out the People entirely, even while claiming to have our best interests at heart.

The slim thread is that while we KNOW Obama will appoint SCOTUS justices hostile to original intent, and will pack the bureaucracy with others who will ardently usurp power, while we HOPE Romney won't do the same?

This is an unacceptable 'choice', like allowing someone facing a firing squad to choose which rifle gets the blank cartridge, or which power company provides the juice to power up 'old sparky'.

Our hope is not to pack an unconstitutional leviathan with 'favorable assets', but in eliminating that bureaucracy which legislates against our Republic daily with the stroke of a keyboard.

Our hope is not in electing someone who might safeguard a couple of our Rights over someone who definitely will destroy as many as he can. Are we dogs lurking under the dinner table hoping against hope that someone might drop a crumb or scrap so we can scramble for it while those who are supposed to serve us dine lavishly upon the fruits of our labors?

Will Romney, in all his pandering, change that (for the better)? Or will the selfsame policies which have elevated those in positions in Government well beyond even my alleged 'wealth' continue unabated, utilizing my hard-earned resources to subsidize their waste, to subsidize programs doomed to fail (at someone else's profit), to support those who will not (not cannot) support themselves, and to decry and fight against the very means by which I gain my sustenance they so ardently tap?

I have no faith in Romeny to even hold the line, much less set things right. His judicial appointments have favored the Left. His policies as Governor, if taken nationally, are adversarial to my Rights, especially the RKBA, and the Right to NOT subsidize abortion in any form (a deeply held religious belief). Mandating that I conform to even the policies of that State would fly in the face of my deeply held religious beliefs at best, and make an instant criminal of me at worst because there are some edicts with which I simply will. not. comply.

We need a majority in both Houses, and we need those who will take the others to task to fight for the Constitution.

Without that, even if a Republican wins the White House, all they will get is the opportunity to be blamed for the collapse of the dollar (like Bush was blamed for the collapse of the housing market after years of CRA), loss of reserve currency status, widespread civil unrest, the likely demise and balkanization of the Republic, and the worst economic depression in this continent's history.

Since much of that seems likely anyway, (because none in the lineup will undertake the draconian cuts necessary to prevent it), perhaps it would be just as well to let the blame fall on the Marxist/Communist/Socialist/Democrats where it belongs.
