There Is Still Time (or Don't Let Newt Down)
Vanity | April 15, 2012 | True Believer Forever

Posted on 04/15/2012 8:39:45 PM PDT by true believer forever

While everyone is in the weeds counting delegates and wondering who Santorum will endorse (it will be Romney), few people are talking about the degree to which the GOP will be emboldened if Romney gets the nomination. It will be a sign to them they can get the evangelical, social and fiscal conservatives to fall in line, all they have to do is wait them out.

A few days ago, Mark Levin said he was disgusted with the Republican establishment, right after he said, 'we conservatives have to work together to pull out a victory for Mitt Romney’, just one of the presumed conservatives who have fallen in line with the GOP this past week. Establishment Republicans now know without a doubt that the base, its leaders and luminaries, can get to the point of total disgust with the GOP, and they will still fall in line.

Last cycle, Huckabee helped split the conservative vote, and make a path for the squishy one. This time it's Romney in the it’s my turn circle… Next year it will be Santorum. And Santorum will be sufficiently and properly neutered if he gets his turn next, count on it.

And where is last cycle’s Santorum, Mike Huckabee, who played the evangelicals big time in 2008, right now? Hosting a radio show competing with Rush.

We are at the breach, and there is still time, though barely. If people like Levin, DeMint, Sarah, etc., would jump in now – and they won’t – grab this moment, secure it and swing it back full bore at the GOP, the King Georgers would get a message loud and clear, they can't take the base for granted. And maybe the next time they think about trying their Karl Rove Gambit, they won't.

We can't look for help or expect anyone with power to give us a hand. We can either stand up and get in the battle, or hand the GOP another reward, a compliant conservative base, whom the GOP already despises and take for granted.

Not me. If Newt doesn’t beat Romney, after falling in line in 2008 and in 2010, this conservative will vote for Obama.

If the delegates don’t go to Romney, he doesn’t get the nomination. It’s that simple.

Coercion of conservative radio hosts to get them to say they support Romney is a necessary step for him to get the nomination.

But at this point, Romney still doesn’t have it in the bag.

Well, I doubt that will happen, so I guess we'll just have to start confiscating conservative cards once this election is over :)

Very few people, especially the high-profile ones, will be able to resist the onslaught of the establishment pressure to push Mitt Romney over the finish line, the hand-picked candidate who they have been declaring “inevitable” since before he launched the weakest primary run for the Republican nomination in as long as most people can remember.

Anyone who does stand up to the establishment elites in Washington and their Wall Street masters is to be revered as a true patriot and exalted as an unwavering hero to the conservative cause.

Gingrich will have to get at least what Santorum could have pulled. Even pulling 50% of the remainder will allow Romney to more than clinch the crucial first ballot, where most of the delegates must vote as assigned. We can hope for the miracle.

A man and a woman were on a plane, having just met. The conversation went well, and after a time the man propositioned the woman for one million dollars. The woman was shocked, and said nothing.

But later on, as the flight was coming to an end, the woman said to the man, “Are you serious—one million dollars?” To which the man replied “Yes.” So the woman agree.

Just then the man said to her, “That’s good. But you’ll have to forgive me, I don’t really have a million dollars. So will you take ten dollars instead?”

The woman was outraged. “Just what do you think I am!” The man answered “That has already been established. We are only haggling over the price.”

From what I understand, Santorum is going to endorse romney, and the polls on the subject always said, if Santorum dropped out, half and half split of his votes between Mitt and Newt. But the one unknown is, how angry his supporters will be because of him endorsing Romney, that has never been polled.

One half of Santorum's polling is 12-15%, and that would at least give Newt a big bump..

So we all have a price. (Just look at 2010 Tea Party candidates in Congress.)

What is Levin’s price? Or Rush, Coulter and all the “back bencher” radio hosts as Levin calls them?

If you can put Levin’s career on the line, you can get him to support Romney. It’s that simple. Same with Rush.

I am so glad you are voting for Newt. Find 10 other people to vote for Newt, and they can find 10 other people to vote for Newt, and they can find ten other people... and so on and so on and so on :)

Why vote for Obama when you can vote for a 3rd party conservative? I would never vote for the Saboteur under any circumstance.

Unless some prominent conservative stepped in to run 3rd part or indep. I would vote for Gary Johnson. I wasn’t a fan of his at any point in time but I think he would be the most prominent candidate as far as we know now - who isn’t Romney or Obama.

RE: "Just look at 2010 Tea Party candidates in Congress."

You are absolutely right there. That's why the people saying let's work on congressional tickets for strong conservatives, need to think twice... Even Allen West let everybody down...

But my point about the radio hosts, they are private citizens, not politicians, so the GOP can't threaten them, and if they do, with what? I feel sure the GOPers like Bachman, Demint, etc have been talked to and I understand that totally.

50% of Santorum turns this into a blowout for Romney. Newt needs to do better than that. I have a sneaking suspicion a large number of those supporters will sit it out now rather than vote for either of the candidates who trashed the one they were supporting. Perhaps if Santorum endorses Romney, some might get angry enough. Hopefully, Santorum will either not endorse or will support Gingrich.

So who is standing up? Newt, and after that, I don't think he has any Washington support, does he? None in the conservative or mainstream media...

That is one thing I have on my to-do list next week, just compile who is still supporting him, so we can encourage them... but so far, my list is kind empty :(

Mass media is very lucrative for certain personalities. Control of the flow of assets is in the hands of the very few.

From what I've been told Santorum will endorse Romney, and boy do I hope that is wrong... My point was if Newt is gaining NEW support and, along with that, picks up 50% of Santorum, that would great... much better than where he is now...

We only have to keep Romney from getting half of the remaining delegates. We can do this!

The media type people (especially “conservatives”) have already all been threatened into letting Obama’s eligibility problem get poo-poohed. We’ve known for some time that they were LITERALLY hostage to George Soros on the eligibility issue, and them saying we need to pull for Romney now is no more credible than them saying we were crazy to think his BC was forged (which is now the subject of a criminal investigation). They are just saying what they are told to say. We know Soros wants Romney as the GOP candidate because he’s said he sees no difference between Romney and Obama.

So as disgusted as Mark Levin is over the GOPe, that’s how disgusted we are with a “conservative” punditry that simply reads off of Soros’ teleprompter. If Levin, Hannity, etc endorse Romney it is Soros’ attempt to demoralize us, but that can only happen if we forget that these people ARE reading off of Soros’ teleprompter and have been doing so for some time on the eligibility issue. Did any of us really think Soros would find out he could dictate what the conservative puppets had to say, and would then stop at Obama’s eligibility? If he’s got puppets he’s going to use them against us.

The whole system is hostage to George Soros.

But he can’t threaten us little people. We will always be the fish bone that has the last laugh by getting stuck in his craw. He can’t threaten or bribe us all, and we are the ones who vote.

Let’s tell Soros where he can stuff it.

GO NEWT!!

Exactly. However, a lot of people who said they would support Romney WHEN and IF he was the nominee, have decided that he is the nominee, and jumped on board. That's the distressing part - they're behaving like democrats and the establishment GOP.

I have seen in some of his recent appearances or news articles on the primary where local official sand delegates are supporting him. Of course the big names aren’t out there pushing for him very hard or seemingly on the campaign trail for him.

Levin has always stated that he will support whomever the GOP nominee is with vigor.

And that’s what I’m going to do to, but maybe not with vigor, because I hate the phony son of a b*tch, and I hate the useless GOP even more.

However, it is almost game over, there are only two teams playing, and neither one of them represents us or anyone like us, so what are we going to do?

There isn’t going to be any overtime. If this game ends in a tie, the bad guys win. If the bad guys win, the bad guys win, and if the good guys win, the bad guys still win because the good guys ain’t really all that good.

Before The Fall starts, our Fall, I want to be able to say I took the last possible legal step I could before I then had to contemplate any additional step.

I think things are about to get really, really bad.

So it’s kind of like Glenn Beck says-

“Mitt Romney, at least he’s not a commie.”

I think, er I guess we’ll find out, maybe, but either way, the USA is going to learn about communism firsthand and hardcore.

You're an unhelpful, nitpicky whiner. You've been bashing EVERY nominee in this race all along, as you did in this post below. Newt is a conservative HERO who did more to establish conservatism in the Republican party than anyone in the last several decades. Goldwater, Reagan and Newt are three of the most successful standard-bearers of the conservative cause.

stuck_in_new_orleans said:

Ever think were in this situation because there isn’t a single conservative in this race? Newt is unpopular and his losing in the primaries shows it. Romney is boring. Santorum is a nobody. Palin runs her mouth from the sidelines. There’s not a party unifier.

Never forget that George Soros told Fox and the talk radio networks that if they reported on Obama’s eligibility he would annihilate them. They’ve been reading off his teleprompter about eligibility from Day One.

Soros just changed what the teleprompter said. Now it says, “Romney has to be the GOP candidate and we have to support him.” Why now rather than waiting until after we actually have a GOP candidate? Because Soros wants to make sure nobody has the courage to support Newt and defeat Romney.

IOW, this is Soros trying to tell you and me to give up because our “heroes” already have. But our “heroes” have been taken hostage. And that cat is out of the bag now. Sheriff Joe’s posse has verified that those threats took place, and now the Hillary folks are revealing the kinds of crap that Soros pulled on them in the 2008 primary - the crap he’s now pulling on the 2012 GOP primary, most likely.

We need to expose it, for all we’re worth. People need to know we are dealing with ruthless thugs - AND that Soros planned to destroy the US economy, which Obama agreed to do.

Those Hillary people who were shafted so badly last time - they have lots of reasons to support Ron Paul. If they change their registration to republican in order to support Ron Paul, every vote that Ron Paul gets is one vote that Romney doesn’t get.

This is why Sarah Palin wants Ron Paul still in the race. He does have something to add, and his supporters deserve to have their voice heard too. In the end, if we’re going to hear all the voices that deserve to be heard, we’re going to have to have one serious, hefty dialog at the GOP Convention.

We need to point out to people why all our leaders seem to have abandoned us - because they are held hostage. We need to point out that it is just an attempt by George Soros to demoralize us, and he’s attempting it because he KNOWS WE CAN DO IT - we can keep Romney from getting half of the remaining delegates!

We need to keep telling people the truth about Soros’ threats and takeover of Fox and other “conservative” media, as well as the lawlessness from the 2008 democratic primary and Soros’ choice of Obama because he agreed to help with Soros’ plan to destroy the US economy.

We are getting flak because we are above the target and they know it full well. Full steam ahead!!

The trouble is that most of the “unbound” delegates are part of the GOP-e. They are unlikely to peel away from Romney without a lot of effort.

Of course the big names aren’t out there pushing for him very hard or seemingly on the campaign trail for him.

Perry is not as strong as he once was, but he hasn't gone wobbly yet. And, I am probably in a minority, but I am getting a little tired of Palin's winks and tweets from teh sidelines. She needs to get on the battlefield. I am going to try and find time to write her this week, get the best addresses I can for her, and ask others to do the same...

Cain, one of Newt's endorsers has said he would support Romney...

JC Watts, Thompson, the others, they all need to be contacted, supported and encouraged... that is, if encouragement from the nobodies would mean much to them...

Do you know that old old christian hymn - one of the oldest in the southern church?

"And all you see before you is a hill, and a mountain after that, and then a road with stones to cut your feet..."

Vote as if this was for homecoming king if you like, but with Soros’ communist-Islamist alliance focused on destroying this country what I want is a Churchill, regardless of what I think of his personality. We are WAY beyond the point of having the luxury of just LIKING a person be the reason to vote for them.

It’s not too late! We just need to keep Romney from getting half of the remaining delegates. We can do this!

We’re down to three players. Finally it will be conservative v liberal, rather than conservative v conservative. If we just hold true to our conservative principles and don’t give up too soon, from here on out it should be the conservative winning because the vote isn’t split.

And we should encourage the PUMA’s from the 2008 dem primary to switch to R’s so they can vote for Ron Paul. They’ve been through enough lawless crap from Soros that Ron Paul’s points about Constitutional protections are resonating with them. Anybody who loves the rule of law should be glad to see them realizing they need to fight the lawless thugs however they can. They see the same lawlessness that Soros and the dem establishment did in 2008 is being done by the GOPe in 2012.

Never forget that George Soros told Fox and the talk radio networks that if they reported on Obama’s eligibility he would annihilate them. They’ve been reading off his teleprompter about eligibility from Day One.

Soros just changed what the teleprompter said. Now it says, “Romney has to be the GOP candidate and we have to support him.” Why now rather than waiting until after we actually have a GOP candidate? Because Soros wants to make sure nobody has the courage to support Newt and defeat Romney.

IOW, this is Soros trying to tell you and me to give up because our “heroes” already have. But our “heroes” have been taken hostage. And that cat is out of the bag now. Sheriff Joe’s posse has verified that those threats took place, and now the Hillary folks are revealing the kinds of crap that Soros pulled on them in the 2008 primary - the crap he’s now pulling on the 2012 GOP primary, most likely.

We need to expose it, for all we’re worth. People need to know we are dealing with ruthless thugs - AND that Soros planned to destroy the US economy, which Obama agreed to do.

Those Hillary people who were shafted so badly last time - they have lots of reasons to support Ron Paul. If they change their registration to republican in order to support Ron Paul, every vote that Ron Paul gets is one vote that Romney doesn’t get.

This is why Sarah Palin wants Ron Paul still in the race. He does have something to add, and his supporters deserve to have their voice heard too. In the end, if we’re going to hear all the voices that deserve to be heard, we’re going to have to have one serious, hefty dialog at the GOP Convention.

We need to point out to people why all our leaders seem to have abandoned us - because they are held hostage. We need to point out that it is just an attempt by George Soros to demoralize us, and he’s attempting it because he KNOWS WE CAN DO IT - we can keep Romney from getting half of the remaining delegates!

We need to keep telling people the truth about Soros’ threats and takeover of Fox and other “conservative” media, as well as the lawlessness from the 2008 democratic primary and Soros’ choice of Obama because he agreed to help with Soros’ plan to destroy the US economy.

We are getting flak because we are above the target and they know it full well. Full steam ahead!!

I am working the night shift after a long long day and I can't give this the real thorough reading I would like right now, but I am going to and pass it around, if that's okay with you... and you can tell me how to credit it... because the troops are getting demoralized, not giving up but they are down.

What do you make of the fact that it's been reported Paul is reaching out to the evangelicals? Is there anything there at all for him?

I have a little group of young grassroots I supervise and I posted the following to them on Thursday, I think, because they really loved Mark Levin and were very demoralized as was I...

It deals with what you are talking about, THE FEAR FACTOR...

TRUE COLORS TIME

If you listened closely to Sarah tonight on Levin’s program, she was pretty much endorsing Romney… I suspect she will hold her cards, won’t jump into the fray until the convention, where she will get maximum exposure for her particular agenda… And then she will play the good citizen role and support Romney… I’ve been worried about her since she showed up so ungraciously during the summer to rain on the parade of some of the more conservative candidates…

The same applies to her as everyone else... Not fighting - not helping Newt right now is the same as voting for Obama.

I want you to think about something – if all these people – who call themselves conservative – who want to be thought of as conservative – all joined together – from Limbaugh – to Sarah – to Bachmann – all the others – and in one voice said, No, we won’t – and worked their hearts out for Newt – starting this moment right now - instead of CYAing it… there would be no doubt who the next President would be - It would be Newt. It will still be Newt. But look what they are doing… look at the maneuvering, the shifting, the caving. In the space of a week the conservative world – political and otherwise – has become a cluster of Bart Stupak clones.

Even Santorum, what did he do? Faced with possible/probable defeat, he caved, he ran home… he didn’t like the amount of debt he was accumulating. He couldn’t see the math allowing him victory. So. He. Quit.

How does Mark Levin – any of them – ever complain about or criticize Boehner again? Or McConnell – or the Republican establishment? They are just as weak… as spineless… just as compromised now.

True Colors Time.

America flickers, a lighthouse about to be engulfed by darkness. People are folding caving collapsing – all around us - and we are being chided for not being realists…

Realists on the banks of the Delaware would have tried to convince those First Patriots it was too cold – too dark – too much ice – the pragmatic thing was to wait for another day… when conditions were better - the risks not so great…

Exactly who is behaving like George Washington right now? And who are the cowards?

Next time..

Four years from now – they will look back and call these times carefree like the play of children… it will never be easier than it is right now. Next time - it will be harder – where will the repurposed courage come from then?

It is always going to require biting down hard while terror circuits through you – facing annihilation; not facing impossible mathematical odds, facing annihilation.

Who will there be then to face down the kind of raw fear that cakes the back of the throat and jellies out muscles and nerves? Who? And where will they be found?

They have Newt now – experienced, battle hard, for the most part fearless, doesn’t know how to quit… there is no one else now; there never was. There will be no one else the next time – if there is a next time – because next time – not even a Newt will be sufficient.

The fainting conservatives see the GOP establishment – its power – everywhere and deep – arrayed around them - able to twist events - turn people to their will – the same way that American soldier saw the British fleet in Boston Harbor… as if all of London was afloat before his eyes. .

Yet they carried on. A rag tag bunch – one step ahead of annihilation. It should be a song in your hearts by now.

They carried on and today I am writing to you about them. And their True Colors Time. I know everyone around us is fainting - finding excuses for fainting - trying to make their fainting seem purposed - or holy - pragmatic. But, they are still just fainting.

Fret not.

Faint not.

Fear not.

The politicians can make their life a living hell using the FCC.Levin has been forced to get on the romney bandwagon just like every other supposed conservative talkshow host.It sure as hell happened here in georgia.I dont listen to any of them anymore and wont ever again.

Oh, okay. So finally I see some connection, and that really makes a lot of sense. Thanks.
