0bama must be defeated; take one for the team.

Hell no. How about you quit enabling the stupid GOP bastards that keep pushing liberals.

No Sale. No Romney. No Obama. I won't vote for a liberal.

"I am over here shaking my head..... Newt endorses Mittens and even wants to help get him elected and a bunch you are still singing the Newt praises."

telling points. i too am with the God-fearing samuel, who i understand (and God forbid and forgive if i incorrectly paraphrase His word) correctly stood aside and let the people have their God-chosen tyrant (for it is God who gives us the leader we need and deserve, and yes we both needed and deserved the evil obama). if God moves me to support one of the remaining liberals, so be it. His will be done. but as of now, i will stand aside as did the good samuel, stop actively fighting romney as i have been since the beginning, and let the LORD work his will.

if the LORD raises or converts a true conservative for the constitutional office of president and presents him or her to us, i will activate my support again. for now, i work for true conservatives down ticket. there are many conservative davids to support. i pray that this the correct course. at least for me.

...there are two choices, but the choice is not between the respective nominees. The real choice is between giving ones grudging (or groveling) support to the corrupt and suppressive ruling class, or RESISTING TYRANNY.

Hear, hear. This is why staying home on election day (in terms of the presidential election, at least) is meaningful. And why "conservatives" who hear that and say "enjoy 4 more years of Obama" are completely missing the point.

Newt was the BEST choice. Newt’s “support” of Romney is only a basic courtesy that any candidate must comment on. I’m sure Newt must’ve hurled, or had the distinct feeling of Nausea having to support such a liberal flip-floppin’ phony ironing board. It’s OK. Newt is 100xtimes stronger, but how sad is it that money is the main game?

"Wake me up when Obama’s not POTUS anymore."

Can romney really win? I am seriously not optimistic on that. When do liberal moderates win GOP general elections?

The Commie in the White House has that. The media anyway! He has to go!!! Need to vote him out!

Yes it is between Romney and 0. Personally I don't think Romney has much of a chance for a number of reasons. As much as I hate the policies of 0bama I realize that with a Republican house and senate he will rule by executive order. This is mostly temporary and we will get through it. My biggest fear of Romney is having all of our gains in congress wiped out in 2016 because of his failed policies, think 2006.

Precisely, Tintin. They don’t. I sure wouldn’t campaign for that shmuck. Gingrich, I’d hold my nose, and at least do something for him. But Romney? Never.

“If the forum is NOT going to back the Republican candidate then what is their left to talk about?”

How about which you would prefer, ovens or a labor camp.

How about when he’s King or our dear Supreme Leader? If he gets reelected that will be coming.

Well, wake me up then. He’ll probably be invading my country anyway, either with the USMC or an Arab proxy. What could I do for Romney over here, anyway?

After they change parties.

No he did just as I expected, he is as progressive as Mittens and I never bought his conservative bull he tried serving during the campaign, unlike so many others here who shouted and some who still shout the praises of this immoral left leaning corrupt lobbyist con man.

Yes but that is not ever the answer IMO to take pick boob one over boob two, neither of them are acceptable.

My point is we should never have been supporting him in the first place, we are reaping the fruit of what we have sown...look at what we get now either Obama or Romney.

LOL, I think i didn’t read your question properly.

No I don’t prefer Gingrich to help Obama but I don’t want Romney either. Romney should he win which I don’t believe will happen will set the GOP further back from conservatism so a Romney win will be long term terrible.

Point again by supporting Gingrich who was not a conservative we have ended with two terrible choices.

Here’s what Newt said:

“This is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan. This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.”

I think that is a true statement. You agree?

>>>Romney should he win which I don’t believe will happen will set the GOP further back from conservatism so a Romney win will be long term terrible.

But an Obama win will be long term catastrophic - for the republic.

Did it help the GOP for McCain to lose? Why would you think it would help this time?

I don’t think the problem with our candidates is the fault of ‘the party.’ Conservatives need a strong candidate and unity. Without that we lose; with it we win - in the GOP.

Unfortunately Mitt Romney doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of defeating his slightly darker ideological brother.
The GOP nomination was the race for the presidency. Romney will win and it really won't be that close.
