Congratulations RINO GOP

You picked a NE Statist now you`re stuck with him.

You thought you purged and were victorious over Classical Liberals ?

Who will laugh last?

Wasn’t Rove plugging for Romney earlier on?

At any rate what is Rove recommending to Romney now. Tack even further left to try to sap the liberal vote?

ARGGGGGH.

Go obama, go! Thats what half, if not most, the people in here want, so that the GOP will be “taught a lesson.” Enjoy living under communism, Romney haters, because thats what you want and thats what you’re going to get.

yeah and all the other primary candidates couldn’t even make it out of our primaries. What makes you think that they would have been any better off if not worse. The only one that could have done that even in a fantasy would be Palin. RIck and RIck both stumbled over themselves and Newt just couldn’t get the numbers.

Hey ...

You forgot ... Remember George Bush-41 ?

Yeah, he's that "vision thingee" guy ...

Endorsed Willard with open arms, Barbara (bless her), was there for the photo-op too ...




August 2012 is a LONG was off ... Mitt took his "victory lap" too soon ...

Newt and Sarah Palin get the Tampa nomination ...

Knock it off, Romney is severely conservative and you know it!

He said so himself.

Here's the thing--I don't think it is funny. Not one bit.
The GOP-e and libs (and their high dollar donors) are playing power games at the expense of the people of this great nation. That grin on my face is not mirth, it is anger.

In the end, Obama will probably hang himself. Romney has to do very little but to look mushy moderate on things of grave concern like jobs, and Obama will perish by the contrast.

Romney is like a transvestite gender neutral, trying to get the best of both worlds but looking horrible in either. Some stuff are just not marketable.

Look, I’ve been governor in a pretty tough state. You’ve heard of blue states. In the toughest of blue states, I made the toughest decisions and did what was right for America.
I have conservative values. ”

Just like Mark Levin said, if people want to live under tyranny, there is not much we can do about it. If Obama is re-elected, we are officially a Communist nation..more and more people want freebies, entitlements, their “Fair share” this is not the America the Founding Fathers gave their blood, sweat, and tears for

Fark you GOP-E! You are to blame for a second BHO term!

Give me someone to vote for!

You won’t.

Romney and the rest are just part of two steps forward, one step back. Rmoney elected? Should consevztives dit back and let him continue dragging The Republic deeper into the cesspool of socialism?

If Romney is elected consrvatives loose not just 2012 but 2016 when the left takes everything!

No Romney!

My family and I will be heading to our small family farm and when you come for us.......the cost will be great!

I'm not a "Romney Hater" ...


However, I do "loathe and despise, with extreme prejudice" the following types of people:

A) Religious Cultists who claim that Satan and Jesus Christ are brothers

B) Business Managers who "love to fire people" ...

C) Pet owners who horribly misstreat their animals

D) "Predatory Vulture Captitalists" ...

E) Men whose cowardice and GREED exempt them from EVER serving in the United States Military Services (for generations upon generations) ...

F) Republican E-RINOs who engage in "character assassination" against genuine Conservatives ...



Sounds a lot like a jerk-face guy that I've read about ...

Not sure where's he from .... Michigan, Utah ...

However ... he's darn-tootin' sure that he's headed off (someday) to some mystery planet somewhere ... to be appointed as a "celestial god" ....

The self-delusion of the RINo Romney supporters is that he will somehow be different from Obama.

Would an inmate be consoled with the notion that the new Warden just delayed his execution by 30 days?

In the end, the prisoner is still dead.

Congratulations RINO GOP You picked a NE Statist now you`re stuck with him.

Well actually you can't blame this one on the RNC, Rove or some convenient whipping boy. The RNC did not force Santorum and Gingrich to keep running and split the conservative vote. So we can blame this on ourselves, conservative candidates and their supporters. This is what primaries are all about so I am exactly sure what could have prevented this since there wasn't a single conservative candidate everyone would rally around.

ROFL

"Romney haters"????

You mean those who KNEW Romney-the-RINO was gonna lose since he's "Obama-lite"???

Those who support a RINO deserve the shame of being spoon-fed the (R) that they MUST vote for, whereas those who vote their Conservative conscience are "Romney haters".

Good luck with YOUR Candidate.

We conservatives who voted against Ford in protest against the GOP-e won’t work to get Obama elected like we did for Carter. We have learned from our mistakes.

On the other hand the undervote for President on the conservative side may be of epic proportions. However, a Newt/Palin or Palin/Newt ticket would pack the house.

Fine, you stay home on election night, have your pity party and hissy fit. Let the grownups try and defeat Obama. You guys are really going to have to get a new shtick; calling people who are choosing to deal with reality “GOP-Es” and “Romneybots” is childish. If you were to look at our posting histories, you'd see we are anything but Romney supporters. We are trying to deal with reality and make the best choice we have available to us! Got it?

Our country cannot survive 4 more years of Obama. At least with Romney we have a chance. Remember, we only have two choices: Obama & Romney!

There is another choice, Virgil Goode, and at this point, I plan to vote for him.

And has been pointed out, people who point out Ross Perot, forget, that at one point he had a decent shot of pulling it off, until he went Cuckoo, towards the end of the campaign.

No one deserves to be “taught” that “lesson.” Romney is light years better than Obama. But I’m with Rush. I think it will be an electoral blowout for Romney (and would have been for any GOP candidate).

I interpret Rove’s statement as a warning for those who think that Obama will be easy to defeat that they have a fight ahead. That those who want obama out of office don’t dare be comfortable or smug about ‘bho can’t win’ and thus I don’t need to vote or can vote for a 3rd party candidate.

Sorry, but if Obama wins, whiny A$$, little cry babies like yourself will hold some responsibility. People like you are incredibly selfish. Your guy doesn't win, so you decide to have a little pity party and sit this one out. We are acting like adults dealing with the hand that's been dealt us. What you are doing? Nothing but acting like a little child: “Whaa, Whaa...my candidate didn't didn't win! I'll show them...I'm going to sit this election out! That will show them!”

It will be a shame if a few hard core anti-Romney voters stay home and end up giving us 4 more years of Obama. Of course if that happens they won’t blame the fact they stayed home; they will do what they always do: blame the candidate.
