Some of his minions here were trying it earlier.
I’m with you on that one.
I won't vote for liberal Romney. Period.
Look, the field was bad this year. No one wanted to run. Romney was beatable, and no legitimate candidate stepped up. The fact that Santorum and Gingrich--both single-digit players any other year--got any traction whatsoever shows that the field was just lousy. I didn't see any electable conseratives lining up to run. Did you? Seriously. Who was a good conservative candidate in the race? There was not one.
Say what you like. I won't vote for Romney, in the misplaced hope that the GOP can be persuaded later to please move a little bit to the right.
Like I said before, Buckley was right. Vote for the most conservative person who has a chance to win.
They can pound sand. Besides, every time they put up a liberal go-along-to-get-along type, they lose.
Like who, McCain? Everyone seems to forget that McCain was leading in the polls until Lehman Brothers. Look, McCain wasn't my favorite candidate by a long shot, but to say that McCain lost because he was a moderate and not a conservative is just delusional.
Ok, so what are you going to do about it? If you have a productive answer, I'm all ears.
I won't vote for a liberal, and that includes Romney. Justify yourself voting for a liberal however you like. I won't do it.
It is painfully obvious that ABO is code for “Vote for Mitt, cause he’s the only hope we have for beating Obama.”
It is also painfully obvious - ask Ballygirl as if you could - that Jim is serious when he says “No Mitt!”
I guess you’re the “rational” conservative; we can tell by your oh-so-superior air. Tell me: after you’ve thrown out all your conservative principles to be so “rational”, what’s left to call conservative?
I doubt it. There are still Harold Stassen supporters out there and he is now dead and not running.
You must be insane.
That link linked to some obscure blogger making no sense at all.
Then you go and say this?
“Heritage has always been a shelter for RINOs who were out of power. They have presented crony capitalism as free-market over the years. Sarah Palin was right on crony capitalism and Heritage Foundation is one of the groups that feeds off crony capitalism. STOP donating to Heritage if you have ever donated to them.”
I don’t know what your beef is with the HF. Don’t care. But if all you have is lame bloggers posting who knows what... then give it up, FRiend.
Now try THIS on for size...
The Heritage Foundations is to American Conservatism as the National Revue is to Social Liberalism.
And the last one in . is worse than Mitt.
Well, I was expecting Always Frosty to get zapped, but not Ballygrl. Oh well, guess I was wrong at my guestimations.
“He’s got what voters need.”
If Santorum is a Jackass, what does that make Newt, a Jackass to the X?Well, there's no way to "like" a comment on Free Republic (or I would), but it's nice to see support for Rick on this forum.
Uh huh. Anyone who envisions millions of Americans just running out into the streets with guns when Obama is reelected is, well, deluded. Be satisfied re-electing Obama. Every choice ultimately comes down to only two. It’s why computers only have 0s and 1s.
How many of these types of articles have we seen in the past seven days? At least a few a day.
I’d say the media is scared Newt might have a chance of winning - as THEY NEED MITT to win so Obama can win.
“Ok, so what are you going to do about it? If you have a productive answer, I’m all ears.”
Frankly, I don’t think there’s a damn thing I can do about it. Romney against Obama has been forced upon us. In todays world, a citizens vote is meaningless. Lobbyists, loyalties and PACs are meaningful.
We had high hopes for the TEA party movement. But, it has been marginalized between 2010 and now. This marginalization of the principles behind the TEA party is embodied by the forced nomination of Mitt Romney. By the establishments choice, they have destroyed the long-standing conservative alliance to republicans.
But if Obama turns out to be Hitler II, he won't have it so easy.
And no, there are always multiple choices.
Like Dole and McCain before him, Romney has no chance, once he's the nominee and the media cranks up their slime machine.
