Same exercise.. gotta elect the RINO, even with all his warts, then work to get more conservatives elected.
Yet, here we are...again.
Only THIS time, the GOP has settled on the worst of the bunch. I settled for Bush I and II, Dole and even McCain. But Romney? They`ve pushed it too far this time. No thanks.
I feel the same way. I "settled" for Dole, Bush II (twice), and even McCain. But Romney is simply too much. At least with the others, they had some conservative leanings, even if they weren't "pure." Romney doesn't even have that. Down the line, point by point, the guy is basically a washed-out version of Barack Obama. Seriously - guns, gays, abortion, judges, and for the FisCons, taxes, health care, government mandates.
What's telling about this is that I *used* to be the guy who was on here and elsewhere opposing third parties and "disunity" and all that to the last breath. At least our RINO is better than their leftist Democrat, and all that. But it's extremely hard to *credibly* make that case this year (though there's no lack of trying from the sellout crowd). If *I've* come around to not going along with the Party nominee anymore, then I can almost guarantee that there are millions of others thinking the same way.
