But, you are correct.Once the nation discovers that this guy is an "MIH" Muslim in hiding,his numbers will tank.
He's a whining dog (blue in color) an annoying phony....A classic schlemiel!
He sounds exactly like the Hanna Barbera cartoon character "Hardy Har Har" (Mel Blanc) the depressed hyena..."Oh dear, oh my".
I agree. Most of us wanted someone else. I wanted Rick Perry. Many wanted Sarah Palin (if only). Others wanted at various times Cain, Santorum or Newt.
We now have a presumptive nominee. We can clutch our purity to our bosoms, grab up our ball and stalk off leaving Obama in the White House for four years ... years in which he’s already bragged that he will be free to do what he wants ... or we can make the best of it.
Vote for the nominee, vote for conservatives in the House and Senate and keep the pressure on The Nominee to do what he’s promising to do.
I don't know how lucky that is, it totally invalidates the primary process. It allows RATs to choose GOP candidates and vice-versa.
I, for the life of me, don't understand how Republicans can stand for it, unless it is the e-GOP allowing it to combat conservativism.
We will urge Mitt to do so when he takes office.
Hopefully, the Supremes have already done a number on zero care,we shall see.
Either way we should take both Houses and if we do, we simply defund it if its still there.
The election will be close but sooner or later the polling industry will have to poll "likely voters" in a fair and balanced way and when they do I doubt zero will have the numbers he has now.
As long as we win Ohio, and Fl.a and likely Va. we will get there.
FR mail for ya.
Oh? And whom would that be? I don't know of any GOP candidate who has the necessary delegates to be the nominee.
I'm surprised that there are so many surrender monkeys around here ready to cast their votes FOR a liberal.
Exactly, I will chose the Palin route every time.
It isn't a religion, it's a freedom!
"Capitalism" is a Marxist derogatory term for economic freedom. "Free market" or American Enterprise are more descriptive.
Some of my T Party friends here in PTown had a large part in the Mia Love win in Utah. First Black Woman nominated and will likely win her seat, is a hardcore unabashed T Partier.
Big things beginning to happen here in the belly of the beast. The Country Club was only able to get one vote to get rid of me and then failed in shrinking my Area Chairmanship. We are playing offense here.
Very mature. I noticed you pinged Jim. I know what we would call you in grade school.
I believe that Romney has been very critical of Obama now that he is the Presumptive nominee. I hope he keeps it up.
Whean asked what Obama’s chances were to win Indiana in 2012 like he did he 2008, Daniels responded, “Slim to none.”
Lieberman voted for Obamacare and Dodd-Frank and the stimulus.
1 - I was not aware Jim was forbidden in thread
and am surprised you even care
2 - Milt Romney is NOT the ‘presumptive nominee’.
and THAT is ironic given that he backstabbed
Gov Palin and her children through surrogates
on the eve of the last election.
3 - Romney has supported Obama EVERY single year.
Romney helped Obama with TARP, and with his
lack of documentation (like Romney the Ineligible).
Romney sends pizza to Obama’s staff.
Romney helped Obama with RomneyCARE.
At least tell the truth.
Keep fighting the good fight.
Rather than ripping everybody to make some holier than thou point, how about you support your candidate. I plan on voting for Newt in our primary, but barring some miracle Mitt will be the nominee by the primary system. I will then support him and try to primary him out in 4 years with a true Conservative.
Those people you are hammering are not the enemy, communism is.
Pray for America
- Milt Romney is NOT the presumptive nominee.
I presume he is and so does most of America.
You will like this, it was suggested someone edit my writing so as not to embarrass the Country Club. Of course they aren’t embarrassed by losing for the last 30 years straight.
The Republicans under G.W. Bush had BOTH the House and the Senate - The RINOS sided with their socialist best friends and Never cut any Government program. During Bush’s first term, when he briefly talked about doing something with Social Security no one in the House or Senate stepped up to the challenge. Aside from Netw’s brief effort at G’ment reduction during 1994/1995, what can you point to in the Republican history that gives you hope that thare will be anything other than more Socialism? A hope & wish sandwich will not get you far. - “Either way we should take both Houses and if we do, we simply defund it if its still there.”
I, as well, have descended the latter from Palin to Perry to Cain to Newt and have sent small contributions in support.
It’s clear to me that Romney will be the nominee and, to my surprise, he has played some good hands in the last couple weeks. Based on a survey of family members, all will vote for Mitt and just can’t tolerate the thought of America’s downfall.
Thanks for the advice newbie. What is the temp down at Obama HQ? Are you a paid troll or do you do this for some greater cause?
The quality of the trolls just aren’t what they used to be.
Pray for America
It has become clearly evident that the GOP leadership is RINO to the core!
Romney is a STATIST and imposes his statism by FORCE
We do need to change that at some point. Still, I love being an "independent" for the pollsters so I can help push that group rightward!
The hope for the future is TEA Party candidates in the House, Senate and State and local offices. We have to re-build the GOP from the ground up. We are off to a good start in the House, but this Nov will be crucial. The old guard has got to be removed; they will never leave on their own.(witness Hatch)
“Very mature. I noticed you pinged Jim. I know what we would call you in grade school.”
You’ve stumped for Romney and impugned those who will not with both regularity and personal diatribe that easily meets the definition of both spammer and troll, subheading, liberal.
But, of course, on FR it’s not what you say, but who you know.
LOL! Thought the same thing. Even Lapdog Lindsay isn’t on. I was sure I’d see either or both listed for the morning’s shows.
Maybe I missed it, but where’s DeMint?
Wow, you’re new, too.
Ive followed with interest the ongoing debate on FR by those who absolutely refuse under any circumstance to vote for Romney should he get the nomination.
I offer the following metaphor:
You have a terminal disease (Obama). You are offered a temporary treatment to save your life, but with lots of bad side effects (Romney) while new treatment is in development (Tea Party). The new treatment hopefully will be available in about 4 years.
You have two choices Die or take the temporary treatment.
exactly...will require patience and unequivocal persistence!
Actually I believe it's "Conservativism" otherwise, your term makes the individual a "conservat".
It won’t even take 4 years. This should have been over by FL and he ended up having to move right and spend around 200 million to get the nomination.
The T Party is going to be more organized and harder on him then they ever were on obozo. We are the growing force in American politics. You are absolutely right, you have to keep moving towards freedom and a half a step is better than none.
Pray for America
When the quality of trolls disintegrates, it’s a sad day.
We used to have a better class of trolls on Free Republic.
Sadly, I am familiar with nasty ping lists. There was one when my candidate (Rick Perry) was in the race.
Every time a positive thread about Rick P. was posted, they came. Like vultures. You would not believe the vulgarity and nastiness of their posts. Or maybe you would.
We now seem to be enjoying the same phenomena with some newbie trolls pinging to any thread which contains positive thoughts about our country.
They are out to destroy Free Republic. I love Free Republic and I want it to go back to being Free.
The Reps barely had majorities and the Dems took over complete control of Congress in January 2007, i.e, for the last two years of Bush's term. And don't forget the Jeffords defection that essentially made the Senate 50-50 for the 107th Congress. The biggest Rep controlled Congress was the 109th (2005-07) when the Reps controlled the Senate 55-45 and the House 231-203 (one vacancy.) And when you have Rep senators like Collins, Snowe, Specter, and others, it really is difficult to do something significant like say Obamacare. You need 60 votes in the Senate.
Compare that to when Obama took office when he had a 59-41 advange soon to be 60 and 256-178 in the House.
If we have more socialism, then the country will face a crushing fiscal crisis that will destroy the economy and plunge us into chaos. We are approaching $16 trillion in debt and running trillion plus deficits every year since Obama took office. Obama has accrued more debt in four years than Bush in eight years or put another way, more debt has been amassed under Obama than under Presdients Washngton thru Clinton combined.
If we don't change course, we will be committing national suicide. We are much closer to the edge of the cliff than we were in 1994 or 2001. 2012 will be a crossroads election. The status quo is not an option.
Your wisdom shows little bounds. Unlike you I am forced to live in the real world. One where reality slaps you hard in the face every day. Like it or not.Grow up.
Who is your candidate who has at least 300 or 400 million in the bank, all kinds of name recognition,nearly enough delegates to win,a huge organization, and the best chance to take out obama in Nov? And don’t give me a lot of pap about why you can’t answer the question either.
As far as you are concerned nothing.You win.Head in sand always trumps reality.
The question for Axelrod should be “Why are you wasting time gossiping about Romney’s family vacation on twitter, When you should be running a re-election campaign?”
And in real life, I’m old. Fascinating, isn’t it.
Perhaps a $10 fee for checking members’ join dates would both solve JR’s finances and promote more intelligent discussion. What say you?
Don’t even waste your keystrokes. Many here,on this site, are hopelessly brainwashed.They regularly defy logic and reality.
Might be too late. I know it's late spring, early summer but the # of posters on the thread seems to have dropped; dramatically on many Sundays.
Many here do,the jury is out.
