Of the GOP candidates still in the race, Newt is by far the "least worst".

What can we do from here to get him on top? Any ideas other than throwing money at him?

Fantastic chart.
It is going to leave a sting on all those RomneyBots who state that Romney is a conservative.
Romney and BHO are nearly identically politically.

Ron Paul's column surrendered to Hamas, was taken over by illegal aliens, and didn't show up because it was too stoned and sleeping with a bunch of hookers.

I've invested in lead and brass and steel.

And I've been ready to lay down my life for my country since I raised my hand and took my first enlistment oath back when I was 18.

But I am NOT voting for Romney. Ever.

I support Newt now that Santorum is out of the race, but unless Newt makes some fantastic headway and is able to force a brokered convention, there is little chance he can win the nomination.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I guess since there were no questions regarding the support of legalized dope, and the betrayal of US service members - Paul didn’t make the cut.

Gotta give L. Ron Paul some credit though... He does make Obama look somewhat sane and credible.

I hate/despise the idea that once again the Republican ticket is putting forth a candidate so opposed to Conservatism and telling us he's the only choice we ever had.

It's like Lewis Black stated: Each Candidate is a befouled pail of ****, and our job is to choose which of the 2 will stink less 4 years from now.

And generally, the American people should faced with a choice that makes them should with glee when they fill out the ballot, not hold their nose.

Unfortunately, too many have convinced themselves that Romney is better than Obama and are still going to vote for him.

I consider that to be a foolish lack of courage. However, they so fear Mr. Obama...they cannot see that Mr. Romney really isn’t an improvement.

If Romney is the nominee On Election Day, I will write in the name of the Tina Fey Look-a-like from Alaska as my president choice.

The GOP establishment is finished as far as I’m concerned.

Believes compulsory health insurance at state level is constitutional (states rights)

Can I request one thing, and this may be worth a thread on its own. Can we stop calling it 'state's rights'. The Constitution doesn't grant States 'Rights', the 10th Amendment clearly states 'powers'. Jay was pretty clear in federalist 14 that powers were not meant to restrict rights.

The reason I say this is because the 10th has been often misused as a tool to restrict individual rights. State level healthcare mandates are just an example of this. It just gives another form of government the power to impede your inalienable rights. Other examples of this include things like McDonald v Chicago where the government said that States can restrict 2nd Amendment rights.

This should be one of those litmus tests for Conservative politicians as, do they believe any form of government can restrict inalienable rights?

That's the way I feel. Romney was my last choice, but he's still better than a second term of Obama. If ZerO gets re-elected, all bets are off. If we thought things were bad his first term, wait until he doesn't have to posture for re-election!

(R)Money (as I have taken to calling him) is going to be the nominee, probably, which means we are out.

I will probably write Newt in and vote hard conservative downticket.

Uh oh...romney is worse than obama!

(But I already knew that.)

He will be the end of conservatism. How can a conservative in honor reject obama’s abortion record but accept romney’s?

How can he reject obama’s support for the gay agenda and accept romney’s?

How can he reject obama’s support for higher taxes and accept romney’s huge increases as governor?

A conservative voting for romney is a hypocrite.

I know, just a pet peeve. I just was arguing with a Paultard on another forum regarding Paul’s commentary in Liberty Defined that he is fine with a state level individual mandate because the Constitution only restricts the fed, not States (except where clearly implied)...

..it is the flawed belief that rights are not inalienable but are just things at the whim of big brother.

I think you make Newt look a little better than he actually is. I will NEVER forget him sitting on that stupid couch with Nan McBotox and telling me about his fears of GoreBull Warming. He's just much more politically saavy than Willard.

Don't get me wrong, if he is listed on my ballot in November, I will vote for him in a heartbeat.

If he's not, and no one beyond Willard and the EvilOne are listed - are you going to hold your nose and vote? Skip over the top of the ballot and vote conservatives down ballot? I think a lot of people who are considering not voting for Willard underestimate the incredible destruction that the Obama will wreak during a 2nd term. I honestly believe that we're done if that happens.

But maybe some people are ready for the reset button and itching to put their bugout plan to work?
