Voters and Delegates say NOT Romney
This entire not Romney force is building to BUST like a water balloon in the face of Romney, his minions and the RNC on the Greta Poll this week on Greta Wire and pounded it within minutes! People are ANGRY. They are angry at our cowardly media because they cannot address the current King, and you want to force feed another via crowning Romney, and have pushed turnout to record LOWS far below what is was with Stinky McCain in 2008.

Darn those minions!
Despite much pressure from Romney forces, Colorado Republicans last weekend at their Denver convention surprised political observers by electing and by a large margin more uncommitted than committed delegates. >>>(The hard count was 23 uncommitted to only 13 for Romney.)<<< This was widely interpreted to mean that rank and file Republicans are still very wary of Governor Romneys candidacy.
The other news is from Washington where the news media is all abuzz about a recent Washington Post/ABC poll. Heres the transcript from a recent Meet the Press.
MEET THE PRESS HOST . I want to show you what I think is the most telling number of the week thats come out in polls and it was from The Washington Post/ABC poll that talked about his favorability ratings. Right now Mitt Romneys favorable ratings, 34 percent; unfavorable, 50 percent that isunheard of for a leading contender at this stage of the process.
Look back historically at what Republicans have enjoyed and if you look at the approval ratings that John McCain had at this point in the campaign, 53 percent; George W. Bush and Bob Dole, 49 percent. Again, Mitt Romney down at 34 percent.
So who else would be the nominee?
Pocket lint, clearly.
My bottom line is that I don't want a liberal in office. Now or ever.
GOP is too stupid and set in their ways to rethink their strategy.
In short, this screed is totally unhelpful.... And I totally deplore it.
Perhaps this authentic Southern Guy I can think of.
Yay Jerry got it open!
(In my best Mrs. Seinfeld voice.)
I’ll vote for Gingrich on Tues. and if Mitt gets the nomination, it will be my last vote as a Republican. On another note, how is there no video yet of Obama being booed at Fenway?
Romneycare brought socialized medicine to Mass. Romney was pro choice and there is NOT enough difference between Mitt and Obama for any conservative to vote for the rino. I posted the article because the writer did quite a bit of research and I do agree with a lot of her points. She is right on Fox as their ratings have gone down. Amazing to me that any christian can vote for Romney. Best to do a write in and vote on state candidates and issues..the time is past due to send the RNC a message.
IF we can win the senate and maintain the house while refusing to vote for Romney it will send the RNC a message and the republicans (if they stick to their conservative values) can do major damage to any Obama legislation. How many times do we have to nominate a rino before the establishment gets the message?
Have to give the author credit for fighting the establishment and Fox News which is more than many take the time and research to do. It is not pocket lint..it is someone that wants to make a difference.
I won’t vote for liberals.
The Republican Party has proven itself as out of touch with its own base.
ANYONE else that is truly a principled conservative!
Note the title of the referenced article e.g. Crowning, as in King...
The RINOs expect their boy Romney the anointed one to be crowned at 'his' convention. LOL.
Principles and morals do not matter to RINOs and the useful idiots that support them BUT votes do matter.
I have a feeling that the RINOs will learn that the convention thet have tried to buy is not an anointing ceremony.
You may not want a liberal in office and I may not want a liberal in office but there are those pesky voters in primaries who keep voting for the most liberal candidate.
The GOP has been pushing Malibu Ken at us for seven or eight years now. Why?
the time is past due to send the RNC a message.
They think it is his turn. Groomed him for years but has he changed into a true conservative? not according to what was said by MITT during the closed door fundraiser at Palm Beach
It's sad, that they prostitute their alleged conservative values to try to assure a futile attempt at a win in November.
They delude themselves with the most amazing fantasies about being about to bend the candidate to their will through pressure....
It's sad. Like an abused woman saying that it will be better this time. And letting him back in.
I hear from Priebus via emails and snail mail. He is NOT the ONLY member of the RNC. They take our money ..now it is time for them to listen UP
Voting for Obama is tantamount to treason.
Not voting is a disgusting slap in the face to our history.
Voting for some write-in candidate with no hope of winning is a vote for Obama. See the first sentence.
It’s almost as if some people here don’t realize four more years of Obama means the end of America.
Store suit mannequin (Twighlight Zone) bump.
It still comes down to, anybody is better than the turd in the office now.
If that doesn't tell the story, then nothing will. Center-right voters have looked at Mitt Romney and have seen right through his snake oil salesman grin. He's a fraud, and voters know it.
How on earth can a Republican challenger beat an incumbent Democrat president with that sort of lackluster support? Frankly, I don't think he can. He's incapable of generating enthusiasm, and if he's relying on the fear vote to put him over the top, then he's got a lot to worry about with people like me, who would rather vote for Mickey Mouse.
So what is a good solution?
I am perplexed why conservatives did not coalesce around ONE candidate early instead of dividing votes.
I am further perplexed why Santorum dropped out when he was in lead with delegates among conservatives.
I am even more perplexed at the thought of letting Obama win 4 more years. Then we are screwed for 30 more years with more SCOTUS justices like of Sotomayor & Kagan, such as Anita Dunn, Van Jones etc.
Hysterical horsecrap. Folks were saying the same thing about a second Clinton term.
Wring out your pink girl panties and man up.
I will not vote for Romney if he is the GOP candidate.
Period. I will work against him.
So put that in your treason pipe and smoke it, hero.
I expect to survive to see a Free Republic.
Katie, you're really got to see this post by Doughty One:
IF we win control of the senate and house and there is a good chance we will..don’t you think Obama will have a hell of a time passing any legislation? IF we go with Romney we will still have a man that supported socialized medicine in Mass.
Romney is NO conservative.
Sometimes, there is no good solution except to keep going and doing right by your principles and trusting in God.
I don't get to pick the outcome. I know the rules I have to live by.
“Voting for Obama is tantamount to treason. ...
Voting for some write-in candidate with no hope of winning is a vote for Obama. See the first sentence.”
I won’t vote for Romney. I will be writing in if the choices are Romney or Obama.
You just called me a traitor.
With all the respect you are due I say:
I will vote Senate and Congress but write in something for Pres.
At this point Conservative branches is the only fall back to reality
we have left for this country.
Romney can kiss my lilly white American ass, and his little Rove too.
“Nice reply douche, but not a single piece of information included. You think you can work your way out of another $10 Trillion in debt, suit yourself, but Im voting for the candidate that wont make us Greece2”
Forget what I said in my previous post about the respect due to you.
You are obviously owed none.
I wonder how long before you ride the lightning?
Not only that, but if somehow Romney wins, then that means no Conservative will oppose President Etch-A-Sketch for 2016.
"If Romney were running as a Democrat there isn't even the remotest of chances that you would vote for the man. But now, because he's running against Obama, some entertain the thought. And what happens in 2016, when a member of Hamas runs as a Democrat and The Republican is only as bad as Obama? Do we then vote for the mirror image of him?
Look folks, at some point we have to let the (R) party know, that they have jumped the shark, and we can no longer support what they want us to. You see, if we don't, we'll forever be voting for McCains, Romneys, and worse of their ilk.
If they can get a Leftist like Romney elected, it's effectively the end of Conservatism. No Conservative will ever get the nomination again. Should that be our goal? No.
“I will be writing in if the choices are Romney or Obama.”
And I’ll be blaming you when Kagan’s lover and their two best friends get appointed to the Supreme Court while America has a $25T debt with $1T annual interest payment and unemployment is at 20%. You and the salaried Obama campaign workers who are posting the exact same thing you are, all over the internet, as we type right now. How does it feel to be indistinguishable from an Obama campaign worker?
Pocket Lint would do a much better job than Romney or Obama.
Pocket Lint 2012!!!
Go Virgil Goode !
Just say NO to Marxist Zero !
Just say NO to Socialist Willard !
I am with YOU MaxMax! and after they kiss your lily white ass..they can kiss my irish arse:)
Just because you get knocked down doesn't mean you can't get up, dust yourself off, and get back into the fight. I don't care how long it takes, I'm going to lock my jaws down on the Republican Party and fight, fight, fight until the right people gain control.
They can knock me down 1000 times, and I'm going to get up 1000 times - and I ain't walkin' away! (and *you* shouldn't, either!)
This past year at our local Republican Party Executive Committee (the largest in my state) we had elections for president of the organization. The candidate from the Tea Party - and arch conservative if ever there was one - got 30% of the vote and lost.
However, next time she's liable to win if we stay in the fight.
And, the incumbent president who I thought was part of the "good ol' boy club" stunned me by eventually resigning to work for Herman Cain's campaign (anything *but" "good ol' boy"!).
Are you a member of your local Republican Executive Committee? If not, then you haven't even started to fight.
I was for Sarah, then for Cain, then Santorum, and now Newt. I am hoping against hope that somehow Newt will pull off a miracle and force a brokered convention so we can get a more conservative candidate.
But, if that does not happen, I posted here on FR, and on my own site, exactly what I intend to do and why.
The fact is, with Obama and his proven track record of destruction to this Republic, another 5 trillion in debt, ObamaCare, defanging and nuetering our military, allowing Iran the Nuke, and appeasement with Russia and China, as well as pushing the dependents on government over 50%...and there may well be no other ballot or peaceful chance to turn things around.
I will do what I indicate above just like the actual survival of the Republic depends on it...because I believe it does.
God bless you betty, and may God's wisdom shine on us as a people that we may come through these extremely dangerous times.
II Chron 7:14
He's really in trouble here in the South. You know he came in third in both Mississippi and Alabama.
Your state, Texas hasn't voted, but even if he pulls out a win against dead broke Newt Gingrich, that's no guarantee he can carry Texas against the Marxist, without conservatives coming out in massive numbers to vote for him and I don't think y'all will.
I agree, but that cannot be spoken here anymore.
This is one of the best posts I’ve seen in a while and I think she is spot on. I really enjoyed the read and the inspiration it provided. I feel about Romney exactly how I felt about Obama before he was elected. I feel that he is dangerous and completely opposite what this country needs.
“How does it feel to be indistinguishable from an Obama campaign worker?”
I wouldn’t know. But I bet it feels the same as being a complete hack and Romney shill on FR. You would know all about that.
