oh.... boy....... go........ mitt....
(just go away mitt)
That messiah shtick works only once in a generation and the current generation got filled up back in 2008.
So, now it gets down to the Democrat primary in November.
Do they have a choice? Not voting for Romney is voting for 4 years more of Obama - and there will not be the pesky issue of re-election harnassing his radical plans for America. His second term will make the first term look conservative.
I pray everyone decides they love America more than they hate Romney. I realize this is not a popular position on FR, but we all suffer when America suffers - Romney is the only chance you have at this point in time.
I did vote for him once -— in 2002 against Shannon O’Brien.
Half a moldy loaf is better than... a fermented turd.
This is not party time for a half competent wishy washy waffle. How can America so not care? Why was Santorum such a brief flash in the pan (and for that matter, why was Gingrich)?
But in the end... Mitt Romney is very worrisome. Barack Obama is an absolute promise of hell.
Buy stock in nose clothespins. I am.
I get almost as nauseated hearing Romney’s name as I do when I hear Obama mentioned. Something is VERY wrong with him.
Romney is a wishy washy waffle, at some point in his career giving the nod to almost everything that conservatives hate, but then sometimes seeming to back off. He hit below the belt when fending off Santorum. Now he’s suddenly the white knight (no racial allusion intended) come to drive out the black knight (same). Cynics can be pardoned for deeming the situation less than beautiful.
But, Barack Obama is so damned lousy that all Mitt really needs to do is sit there and look pretty while the mudballs zing past. After all besides silly lies what are Demonrats going to accuse Mitt of? Flip flopping liberal? They’d instantly indict themselves if they did. No, they are going to paint Mitt as too conservative and capitalist for America’s good. Mitt is meanwhile thinking: throw me in that briar patch!
I know the difference between rejoicing and resignation. This article is just too forced.
just remember that the lesser of two evils is still evil
Obama in this first term is just short of crossing a line into out and out tyranny. If he where to go further in a second term “we the people” would have to throw him out of office either by impeachment, and I still think since he is not qualified all that is needed is to arrest him, or by vigilante justice.
Romney on the other hand will hold right where we are at, just short of tyranny. Taxes will go up, Obama care will not go away. The EPA will not be slowed down let alone ended and TSA will continue to run over our rights.
Which way are we better of?
Mitt would give a Republican dominated Congress more breathing room to operate, and most of them will not go for Mitt’s more liberal notions. I don’t understand why anyone would expect a Republican dominated Congress to have a serious squabble even with Mitt about how to squash Obamacare. It’s such an unpopular turd and it is wasting money on its counterproductive mission as we speak. Mitt has never waffled on the notion that Romneycare like plans should be initiated from the state end, and never the Federal one.
It reads like ad copy from Mitt Romney. There are too many questions hanging over Mitt’s head to have a party.
“Do they have a choice? Not voting for Romney is voting for 4 years more of Obama - and there will not be the pesky issue of re-election harnassing his radical plans for America. His second term will make the first term look conservative.

The problem is there are no differences between the ruling republican leadership and the leading democrat leadership. Mitt is part of that ruling cabal of elites.
With Obama we know what wer’re getting, socialism, with Romney we aren’t sure, but we suspect socialism.
“A people get the leaders they deserve” Jefferson
It just may be too late to save our republic via the ballot box.
As a businessman, Mitt ought to know what a turkey Federal minimum wage rules are. It makes a whole class of casual workers and casual jobs simply impossible. Instead of getting paid “lousy” the class gets paid nothing.
This might be a damage control proposal that takes it off the Democrat political football field. In the meantime broader exemptions could be put in place.
We know what we will be getting with obama...absolute destruction of our country. We don’t know with mitt. We expect destruction of a somewhat lesser degree, but how much less we don’t know. I say roll the dice on the lesser destruction and pray for much less destruction.
Also remember that it’s still the lesser.
When (if) the Viking Kitties come, I have some sardines for them. I’m already on Townhall now, and I will regret what FR has become if JR applies this fairly across the board, but in truth, honest debate over one of the most important issues in A-mew-rica (kitties) will have become impossible there. The subject of the ills and advantages of a Mitt Romney run will simply have become an impossible topic to broach. Perhaps JR could push it into the Smokey Backroom, but to ban it altogether... that impoverishes discourse.
P.S. On Townhall I am ReddestNeck.
FR is hurting. Just look at the new threads. Never before have I seen so many threads with so few comments. I’ll give you one guess as to why FR is hurting. I just hope this site doesn’t dissappear before the election. after the election, things will settle back to some kind of normal.
I do love America. But I love God more. And it’s come down to that.
You can’t vote for god. He’s not running.
Just more agitprop from Team Romney.
Political propaganda, especially favoring communism and disseminated through literature, drama, art, or music: “It also is a conspiracy movie, agitprop against today’s targets, big government and big business” (George F. Will).

Capital G, there.
Voting for God? How do you figure that?
Because he’s not on the ballots...duh.
Glad you finally got there.. even if you ain’t got no thrill on ya leg.

I've asked this a couple of times with no response, so let me try you. We constantly hear this refrain that the second term will be worst than the first. Has there been a case when a President accomplished more in his second term than in his first? It seems that the two-term Presidents get almost all their accomplishments in the first term (and usually in the first few months) and then struggle to get anything accomplished in the second term as lame duck status really sinks in.
No, where did I advocate voting for God?
Playing dumb now are we?
Dude, I could get started here on dumb, but I won’t.
Again-—I said I love God more than my country. Where did I say I was trying to VOTE for Him? If you can answer that, please do.
Obama is clearly and demonstrably by his day to day actions profoundly anti Christ (although he is most certainly not THE Anti Christ foretold in the Bible) and antagonistic and hostile to the Church and to people of the Christian faith.
You imply that you would prefer to vote for a President who has proven time and time again to be anti Christ and hostile to Christians as opposed to Mitt Romney who.
I don't get it. I can understand a certain animus to Romney for good reason based on past actions but at least Romney is not hostile to other Christians who do not share his beliefs and Romney professes to be a Christian according to his beliefs.
Romney has also pledged to respect most, if not all, of the Church's positions including right to life issues if he is elected President.
Obama, on the other hand, is anti Christ, anti Christian and hostile to the Christian Church and it's members. He has proven to be a enthusiastic member in good standing of the Cult of Death on a broad range of issues whenever the opportunity arises.
Obama's full support for the killing of babies who are born alive after failed attempts at abortion and other forms of infanticide crosses the line from metaphysical debate to outright support of a form of behavior singled out for special condemnation by Jesus himself.
Romney may not be the perfect angel, but Obama is a perfect candidate to be best defined by that timeless test suggested in the Bible - "By their fruits you shall know them" in the context and spirit of the phrase .
Some say there is not a difference, but there IS A DIFFERENCE! The communist will take over totally and wreck the economy and then do what all communists do. The Fabian will wreck the economy with a little less haste and then take over and do what all communists do. So there is a real difference. Communism's chains and purges and such RIGHT NOW or we ease into it for a little while longer.
Maybe you are asking the wrong question? Has there ever been a President that has appointed dozens of czars, governed by executive order, and tried to divide us racially, economically, and socially? The answer to that is easy, so who knows what the bastard will attempt in the next 4 years.
Yet another reason why I'm no longer a Republican.
I genuinely sympathize with your feelings. UNDERSTAND that "hate" has exactly zero to do with why I reject Romney as soundly as I reject Obama.
I realize this is not a popular position on FR ...
Frankly, I admire your being here and engaging in the discussion. I sincerely understand why and how my position sounds so radical at first.
The most important thing for me is knowing that at all times and in all places, panic and fear make people lose their heads and make wrong moves. Panic and fear are the "reasons" driving people to vote for Romney.
I pray everyone decides they love America more than they hate Romney.
I know I'm not alone in being one of those who prays everyone decides they fear God more than they fear Obama.
Atta boy. Roll over.
Never seen anything remotely like this. I'm astounded, frankly. The GOP has walked off a cliff, they're plummeting towards the canyon floor, denying it all all the way down.
Obama is loathed by a whole helluva lot of Americans, even -- maybe especially -- by those who voted for him last time. If Obama wins with a 34% plurality, he's going to have a miserable, weak, combative presidency, when 66% of the votes cast were cast against him. Americans would be pissed at Obama and the Democrats and Republicans. Conservatives would win a major battle, and Congress would go hard right. You think there's rebellion in the air now?
That's how we're better off. Unless, of course, you are paralyzed by Omnipotent Obamaitis, which immediately makes the sufferer roll over to a Republican who agrees philosophically and has a record to prove it, with Obama on five major issues: global warming, abortion, the homosexual agenda, activist judges, and nationalized health care. "Uncle - stop, UNCLE! Obama's worse!"
If it's O vs R, I'm voting third party for the express purpose of doing what I can with my vote to make whichever socialist wins, Obama or Romney, has the biggest vote count AGAINST him, and I'm praying Romney loses, as he is actually the greater evil.
Obama is guaranteed Hell. And that’s if we even reach November! He could pull the plug early and start the dictator-dance at any time before the election.
I’m still holding out hope that someone — anyone — better than Romney can steal the reins and get us back on course. But that hope is rapidly fading.
That leaves us with the probable choice of either Romney or Hell, and I’m not ready for Hell yet. (I expect I’ll get there anyway, but that’s another story.) I’ll wear the clothespin, should the need arise.
But here’s something to consider. You can’t run the office of president all by your lonesome. Not possible. You’ll need a TON of advisors, ministers and consuls, just to draw up your daily schedule.
And since Mitt is such a waffler, who can say that he won’t waffle to the RIGHT when his advisors apply pressure? I think we need to spend a LOT of time studying his friends and advisors and possible Cabinet. Hmm?
Do tell. My stars, that man has omnipotent powers! You assume all of America is as cowed as you!
Sad to say, that is pure pretend. Romney is equally evil, made more potent because it's from an enemy within the gates.
We wont have to wait long to find out the truth of the matter.
Romney’s first pick (his VP) will tell the tell of what is to come.
If he picks (as I expect him too) another RINO Yankee like Chris Christie, then my worst fears about Romney will be confirmed.
We shall see! The ball is in Romney’s court now.. lets see if he is smart enough to pick a REAL conservative like Palin as a running mate.
I suppose you think you are witty. E for effort.
Now to your response. No question that Obama has done more with executive orders and czars than anyone before him. Lame duck status could easily affect this just as it does a legislative agenda. It seems that Obama's actions are wearing on even the moderate Democrats in Congress. If you see an Obama second term, I think you'll see more aggressive opposition to him from both sides of the aisle. I have absolutely zero confidence that Romney will substantially undo the czar positions and opt instead to keep them and put his people in place who will be, if Massachusetts is any guide, only slightly less awful than Obama's appointments. The problem with Romney is that he doesn't disagree in any substantive way with any Obama position. His instincts, like Obama's, are for big-government solutions which he hopes to manage better. The problem is that after Romney puts the Republican seal of approval on these solutions, they become institutionalized, never to be abolished.
This nation is so screwed over by both candidates. If "none of the above - let's pick two others and have a do-over" were on the ballot, it would win in a landslide. Personally, I'll not be responsible for putting either of these catastrophes in office.
