"If a McCain Administration had attempted the same overreach as Obama, they would have elicited the same reaction."

Oh, right, if a moderate Republican president had tried to institute a huge, unConstitutional social program he would have been laughed out of the Congress. Kind of like George W. was when he passed THE LARGEST ENTITLEMENT INCREASE SINCE SOCIAL SECURITY. Obamacare got how many GOP votes? How many did the Bush prescription entitlement get? Try not to hurt yourself thinking about how that proves you are dead wrong regarding 'the same reaction' ensuing if a GOP president were to put through an unConstitutional medical program.

"You have no basis for your conjecture that McCain would have attempted to implement socialized medicine. None. You have merely extrapolated your dislike for McCain, to paint him as being as big a socialist as Obama. McCain was no Ronald Reagan, but he was no Obama either."

YOU have no basis for thinking that McCain is a movement conservative. The man prides himself on thinking outside the party, is lauded by the press for stabbing conservatives in the back as a "maverick," and could turn on conservatives at ANY time on ANY issue. It's an EXAMPLE, you yahoo--I'm not saying that McCain would pass Obamacare specifically, but that it's conceivable with his lack of principle that he could push ANYTHING, the Constitution be damned. And half the GOP would line up with him because so many people like you think that the GOP's president should be backed up, like Santorum taking one for the team. You're just proving again how some of the people can be fooled all of the time. To hell with Rudy McRomney!

While I am convinced he must, I doubt very much he will. There are a tone of things I love about NG (and a few I ‘really’ don’t), but I believe he would be a good president. Palin was my choice, but I’m aligned enough with Newt philosophically to be able to cast a vote for him without hating myself.

Because of the modern ‘dynamics’ of today’s political/media climate, a big media day can make/break a campaign. It’s insane, but it’s true. One sentence can and does turn campaigns around. Or one ‘action’. Bachmann lost it hiring the Rino, Cani with the Bimbo BS (setup, granted but it is an example), Perry did it with a word alone - “Heartless”.

If Newt were to do a PR/Press/event and say “BTW folks, In case you missed it due to non coverage by the msm, I’m still in the race and since I’m the only conservative standing, I’d like to introduce you to my running mate, Sarah Palin/Allen West (for example). We feel that Romney is not the right man for leading the country at this crucial juncture in history and we are asking that even if the GOP refuses to get behind us, you will.”

Something like that would instantly turn those dynamics upside down and whatever he does, he batter do it before any more primary votes are cast.

wow, very well said. Well thought, concise, with just a dash of “src” to keep it light. Considering the level of posts around these days, (mine included) I’d put your reply in the 96 percentile. However, I must in good conscience bring up an item or two. The geographical opposite of the (r) party is not a(d), and these days, the reverse is certainly not the case, or the opposite of Obama would not be likely Romney.

Even Newt is no more than a remnant of what was a pre-internet conservative elephant. There’s even been a new sex technique named the Gingrich style; everyone knows your done but you refuse to pullout...

But what drives me crazy is that Romney is not an Enigma, I held my nose while voting for Dole, knowing I was bailing the Titanic with a colander, Mc Cain, hoping that who ever this woman from Alaska was it wasn’t all bad, or Dole again, and now, it’s like -hmm- every time I cozyed up to a candidate this cycle, he and she was found to be too impure to run for office while what? Banks, tree huggers and the EPA try to screw up every industry we need to live, all sponsored by Obama.

Really? People that weren’t raised in a vacuum, or want a world modeled after Star Trek, they can still be MY choice!

But, the question... what do we do if Romney is the candidate... I’ve got to say, I haven’t nailed that one down for sure yet. You adults may need to work that one out for me, though it is strangely prophetic that Glocks response was #666

I am getting tired of wanting to be a conservative sponsored by the republicans and hating who they want to represent me with, and I’m about done coming to them, they’d better start coming to me or I’ll just work with the conservative part...

anyway thank you for a ray of thoughtful insight I’m rambling, and even spell check may not be able to save me soon.

again, nice job..

Correct. McCain is an idiot, always has been. But to call him an Obama is stupid. It is, as a matter of fact, McCain-stupid.

Will the purists throw Sarah under the bus when she does?

Yes, but it will be a high-dollar bus with custom paint
and everyone will shout "YOU BETCHA!" when we toss her.

I will not cut my own throat to save my nose. And I will not put up a yard sigh for an abortionist/homosexualist/statist either in my yard or on my website!!

Unfortunately, it’s the Republicans who throw out their principles to vote for an unacceptable pro-abortion, pro-homosexual agenda statist who are going to deliver the Marxist. Romney is unelectable. Couldn’t even come close to a majority Republican vote in the bible belt. He’s a worse choice than McLame.

“Anybody but Obama”: if Hilary Clinton had quit the Obama Administration a year ago, registered as a Republican, and won the Republican Presidential primaries, would you vote for her in the general election???

Glad you asked.

. . .It’s not just about the next 4 years. More Obama appointees could lock up the Supreme Court for the next 40 years and destroy America for future generations> . .

It's well on its way to doing that now. Romney? I don't believe his appointments will be much better. The Senate and Congress do nothing to contain Obama or any tyrant.

Down ticket voting is our only chance.

No I am not insane. Was just trying to avoid the crap sandwich that has now been served thanks to the RINOs.
