Romney has a life long track record as a pro-abort (just like his Daddy and his Mommy), as one who is favorable to legalizing rump-ranging perversity posing as marriage, as a gun-grabber, as a tax hiker on folks of modest means, as a nominator of truly horrific folks to judicial vacancies, as one who seems relieved to regard perverse court decisions as an excuse to abandon any pretense of conservatism on the issues that matter, as a two-faced serial liar of truly Biblical proportions who tells a whole new series of lies to each new and different constituency. Romney is the eager and willing author of Romneycare which he REFUSES to repudiate and that program not only provided for $50 abortions and has Planned Barrenhood on its board to protect the slaughter of babies at taxpayer expense but also directly spawned Obozocare.
There are regulars here who may (I stress MAY) finally decide to vote for the Mittwit (only because of the very marginally worse nature of Obozo) but none who will do so with any enthusiasm and there will be a great many who will enthusiastically refuse to vote for him altogether.
Romney's despicable and lavishly funded campaign of lies, slanders and distortions to bury each and every worthy GOP candidate under a mountain of fat cat-funded abuse with nary an ad to trumpet his own imagined (hallucinated?) virtues as a public figure. What does he owe to whom for that mountain of campaign money. How will what he owes and pays with tax money affect ordinary Americans?
If you favor Romney, by all means, say so explicitly and suffer the consequences.
You don't seriously believe that the Mittwit will achieve "limited constitutional government," do you? Even if he did, he would fall far from sufficiency without a LOT more. Remember his reputation for saving the Utah Olympics? He did it with a massive influx of federal government tax money. He would be the POTUS of the Muffy and Skipper trust fund babies and nothing more. Yet he brazenly dares to compare himself to Ronaldus Maximus when he is a mere pale echo of John McCain or Bob Dole or Bush the Elder or Gerald Ford. Like each of them, he is nothing but a loser and another nail in the coffin of the GOP and of America. Bush the Elder won one election because he ran in the afterglow of Ronaldus Maximus and because the Demonrats gave him the ultimate gift of uber-boring leftist technocrat Michael "Snoopy" Dukakis (apologies to Charles Schulz's worthy beagle Snoopy) as an opponent.
We have alternatives. We can vote for Tom Hoefling of the American Independent Party who FReeps as Eternal Vigilance whom I prefer. We can vote for Virgil Goode on the Constitution Party which I believe to be a flawed candidacy and party but quite superior to Romney. We can vote by write-in for Sarah Palin or any of a number of other conservatives (Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Marco Rubio, etc.), or vote only the down-ticket and only for the candidates worth electing.
I refuse to encourage spineless "GOP" unprincipled moneybags, salivating over a new opportunity to financially rape this nation to pad their windtunnel grandkiddies' trust funds, just ONE more time. Listen hard to the Romneybots chuckling up their gartered sleeves about how they can buy the nomination and the party and how actual conservatives (whom the elite deem neanderthals as the elite chat while watching those stirring polo matches) will have no place else to turn on election day than to elect their unprincipled money maven. I intend to prove them wrong and I suspect that I am not going to be lonely here in proving them wrong.
If politics is just about "winning," then we can offer the GOP nomination to Hillary Clinton and her satanic majesty would have no difficulty putting Obozo away. Why should we do that? Because politics is about "WINNING." But what would WE win? Only a bit less than with Myth, but, hey, it would be a more guaranteed "WIN!!!". AND, she would attract votes from more parts of the electorate than Myth will ever attract. And she is a lead pipe cinch not to advance any of those embarrassing "conservative" principles. You find her irresistible, don't you? You can admit it. Don't be bashful.
Again, if you favor Romney (or Hillary for that matter), say so explicitly. Ciao!
And some of us that are and will actively campaign against Romney. GOP screwed the pooch when they turned their dirty tricks machine on conservatives.
I didn't leave them, they left me.
The American Independent Party is a separate organization, albeit one with which we often find common cause.
