Posted on 04/18/2012 5:02:41 AM PDT by Haiku Guy
One chunk of the Republican electorate has proved an incredibly fickle voting bloc, denying party unity while the nominating process dragged on. Its the same group of conservative voters that went from candidate to candidate, looking for an alternative to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Now, out of options, it seems that those who identify themselves as tea party supporters are finally coming home to the presumptive nominee.

Romney seems to be a lukewarm liberal, willing to speak and vote against his weekly held liberal opinions in order to get fame and power. I don’t think he cares enough about his liberal tendencies to implement them in the face of opposition.
A flip-flopping lukewarm liberal trying to masquerade as a conservative is much better than a true believing socialist willing to implement unpopular policies.
Sniff sniff sniff... smells like bovine excrement to me.
I don’t play the Powerball, although I once did on a regular basis. At this point, I pay my bills and my financial debts the best I can, by the sweat of my brow.
And just as I can write a check, I can write in the name Newt Gingrich on a ballot. Payback to the RINO elitists.
I feel liberated just thinking about it.
Anderson’s Law: A poll given out for free to the public is intended to advance the agenda of the organization paying for it.
Your use of uppercase, and thusly shouting, is not called for in this reply. With a candidate as far-left as Mitt Romney, good people can have valid differences with your opinion.
You’re a little bit further down the road than me, FReind. I respect where you’re coming from, though.
A good rule to remember.
I didn't inject "race" into this discussion shill. You did. I agree that the vast majority of the people here on FR oppose obomba for the exact same reasons we oppose romney. By you not presenting any evidence that there are any differences between the two the only thing left for a thinking individual to do for themselves is to examine the obvious. Obviously their politics are exactly the same so aside from the fact that the rino romney has a R after his name while obomba has a D, the only differences I can see are 1- their ages and 2- their race. I noticed you didn't mention the point I made about their ages. Why is that? First you infer that I am a racist. Why stop there? Why are you not calling me an ageist as well? Is age discrimination not on your politically correct chart of reasons to object to valid points?
Point is you cannot show us any differences between obomba and romney except their ages, race and oh yeah... their religion although... both are members of huge cults.
Bottom line. Romney cannot beat obomba in a general election. You thought McSkidmark lost bad?! Wait and see what happens to romney if he is our nominee. Tea partiers are NOT warming up to obomney by any stretch of the imagination.
You’ve been here three months, and you’re already snitching...pu**y.
I will not put the reputation of the Republican Party over the health of the USA. If the choices are dog crap and spam, I still want to be involved in the decision.
Anyway, voting for a third party is only half a vote for Obama. Basic math.
Hey, I don’t like this sandwich any more than the next guy. And I, too, note the suspicious odors coming from between the slices of bread.
But the game has been played and we lost. Now it is time to deal with the short term consequences.
Long term... We gotta figure out a way to stop losing this game, or find a game we can win.
Not this TEA party supporter
Learn to read einstein. Go back. Read my posts and learn. I never mentioned a "3rd party" and for the record, a vote for either obomba or romney is "THE SAME THING AS PULLING THE LEVER FOR OBOMNEY."
Learn this reality and stop shilling for a loser.
“sadly we seem to be in the minority here.”
Thank God you are in the minority here and thank God that this is a place where folks still believe principle means something. Romney is a liberal, principled conservatives do not vote for liberals.
well you could be right there. Romney is a chameleon that is for sure.
But you know, even George Soros will be like the Bible says, burned like grass, before we know it. You will go looking for the evil ones but they will be gone.
(1) Partial birth abortion - obama voted to leave babies surviving an abortion on the cutting room floor. (2) Black Liberation Theology and his disdain for white people. That automatically puts you in the back of the bus.
Like Michael Savage says (he who is banned in Britain eye roll) “It’s a shell game, no difference between the Republicans and the Democrats.”
Who is HG
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not at all in favor of voting for (R)Money, but I understand those who would.
LOL... Who's "snitching" tough guy hiding behind your monitor? I guarantee you wouldn't be so bold in person.
Go back to popping your pimples and playing with yourself. Leave the serious discussions to the grown ups k?!
Voting ABO, and you are prolly a DU troll Obama helmet washer.
Now looky heah, Montana ( you on the Idaho Line? Been to Montana Cafe?)
principle is all well and good and you may be right
But Obama MUST be voted out
How best to accomplish that? Eh? eh??
By staying home? Well, maybe if you are praying.
I just wish I could invent a new voting machine that wasn’t so prone to registering dead people’s vote and multiple votes from the same “voter”, can you do that?
Or what will you do to actually fight for your country?
Some guy who’s insisting we must vote for a pro-abortion, gun-control freak, big government socialist.
Easy now Gator, you’ll give yourself a headache
1) As governor romney did nothing to stop the practice of infanticide and as president he wouldn't do anything more than obomba did to stop infanticide. 2) Seriously? Have you read the book of mormon? Studied their history? Have you lived amongst them? Do you honestly think their teachings are any different than the teachings of the Black Liberation theologists? Does your ignorance know no bounds?
Well, I self-reported Abuse, and this thread is still here. So I guess the mods have no problem with it.
I understand why people aren’t happy with this. I’m not happy with it, either.
Although you have some folks disagreeing with you here, I’m confident most agree with me on this - your tagline is pretty funny LOL
Hey, you can vote for whomever you want. Or don’t. Free country, and all that.
( ) Barack Obama
( ) Mitt Romney
Fixed it for you.
Yes Black liberation theology encompasses anti-white propaganda mixing a black version of christianity with Islam. It call for violence against all whites you know the very people that created this country and most of the science, and technological advancements throughout human history. I am against it 100% and against anyone that defends it.
You’re the one who has given up.
You are a coward among courageous people who still believe in America as she was founded.
You ought not so abuse Jim Robinson.
But not so unhappy that your willing to shill for a socialist to a seemingly vanquished group of conservatives...
You, your family, your property and everything you hold dear truly deserve another four, five or more years of obama, his radical czars, his EPA and his black panthers. To use your reasoning: That'll teach them a lesson. Giving up and leaving the asylum.
And, strangely enough, voting for Romney is exactly the same thing as pulling the lever for Obami.
Or do you actually think President Romney will stand up to Obami's minions in the press and Congress?
I am not shilling for Mitt Romney.
I have said that he is less evil than Barack Obama, and I will stand by that statement.
Exactly right. If conservatives in general are similar to those on this forum, they (and we) never united behind a candidate.
Every single one was nitpicked and/or destroyed.
If we’d stuck with Rick Perry, he would be the candidate and we would have a conservative, attractive, likeable guy who could win easily.
But no, he couldn’t debate, he this, he that.
Now we have our last choice and it’s basically our fault.
I’ll be voting for Romney (while wishing it were Perry)
If you do not vote for the only candidate with a chance of beating Obama then you are the problem, not the solution.
Nobody actually expects Romney to vigorously push for Conservative ideas do they?
Seriesly. Nobody's that stoopit.
The 2010 Tea Party movement was real and shows that when Americans feel they have been played for fools that they can turn the establishment upside down.
If 2010 had not happened, then yes my statements would be delusional. But it did happen so my statements are plausible. Whether or not they are likely now cannot be judged now because the emotional passions of 2010 are not on the radar. The question is whether those passions can be inflamed by finding out Obama’s forger has been arrested or a warrant is issued to arrest the forger. I think there is a chance this will happen and I think if it inflames the voters, then the entire political establishment will be on the hot seat.
Sorry you feel that way.
Vaya con Dios.
As I stated in my previous post, it was conservatives who failed to unite and we can’t blame it on the Republican party or the media.
A lot of us piddled around expecting to vote for Palin.
When she opted not to run, some ran blindly (and stupidly) to a likeable but totally unqualified and fatally flawed Herman Cain.
From then on we kicked one after another under the bus on some petty stuff we didn’t like about this one or that one.
Don’t blame the Republican Party and don’t blame the media.
We made a huge mistake, but let’s not make another one by voting for Obama.
Every day Obama’s behavior becomes more erratic and egregious and his planned tyranny more obvious.
If you can’t bring yourself to vote for the Republican candidate because you don’t ‘like’ him, and you think you are teaching someone a ‘lesson,’ you are so foolish I can’t even find words to describe it.
No, it isn’t. Only a vote for Obama is the same thing as a vote for Obama.
And praytell which candidate would that be?
Would that be the guy with virtually the same record as Obama and the guy whom the propaganda State-Run Media AND Obama CHOSE as the nominee to run against???
I'm already sick to death of this shill-meme being vomited forth as some kind of wisdom.
We 'aint voting for either of these creeps. We're voting for a Conservative, PERIOD.
At least I'll have a clean conscience before God with my principles intact.
I agree. The thing to do in this cycle is to win as many seats as possible in Congress, to stop the liberal legislation that either Romney or Obama would be all too happy to sign.
In my opinion, one important difference between Romney and Obama is that I don't see Romney abusing his executive authority to advance the liberal agenda the same way Obama has.
Agreed. Thank God there are a few of us with level heads!
