Skip to comments.Bachmann: Why did I endorse Mitt Romney? Two words: Barack Obama
Posted on 05/04/2012 2:42:57 AM PDT by RDAardvark
BACHMANN: Well, of course I can support him. Two words, Barack Obama. That's our alternative. We have President Barack Obama or we can have President Mitt Romney. It's very easy for me to come forward and support Mitt Romney because we simply have to win the election. He is our nominee.

Joining the increasing list of conservatives to be trashed by some, including Rush, Mark Levine, Breitbart, Newt, Perry
And THAT folks is how our system works. Those who understand and work the system will almost always get their way over someone who works outside the system.
Well Michele, there are 435 members of the House and you are just one of them. I don’t hear many of the other 434 members ‘endorsing’ the RINO Liar.
No one asked you to ‘endorse’ the RINO Liar except perhaps the Liar himself or you decided to suck up to the his people in order to get a shot at a cabinet post.
Your credibility and leadership just took another hit and is a further notch down on the list of credible conservatives.
Speaker of the House you will not be.
And this is how the system is rigged. Each party tries to demean the other party when they both do evil things.
ROMNEYCARE = OBAMACARE
Well I was trashing all those who endorsed Obama in 2008 at another site before Obama won the nomination. This is the same in reverse. GOP sucking up to Romney. Knowing full well he is dangerous. You don’t hear them take on the GOP.
But none of the other 434 members ran for president.
I prefer them to take on the Obama regime rather than the GOP. They took on those they opposed in the GOP during the primary. That was the time and fight then. Now the fight is against Obama and they are uniting to defeat him.
I think that’s a good thing.
She either joins the great majority of conservatives is fighting to defeat the entire Obama machine, or sits it out. Or fights with Obama to defeat his opponent.
Seems to me it’s a no-brainer.
She is absolutely right. We will not survive another 4 years of Obama, we just won’t
There may be some but I believe by the end of the summer everyone will unite to beat Zero.
Yep, give me Barabbas over the debt-Meister!
God those pesky principled conservatives are such a pain.....Virgil Goode for President 2012. Why can’t you support this good guy?
I am frustrated that we didn’t take advantage of the primary’s like we should have. That’s a RNC thing and it needs to be rectified. We cannot allow our nominee to be selected by this way.
As of now, we have two choices to who is going to lead our country. One is a communist, and one is a Liberal Republican. One will come into your house and burn it completely do the ground. The other will come in and steal some things, but leave the rest intact.
I do not like Romney, and will be just as active fighting his policies as I am with Obama and other Libs. But Romney will get my vote compared to Obama.
> “But none of the other 434 members ran for president.”
People who subscribe to your view are indeed “No-Brainers”.
She could fight for conservatives. Instead she folds in with a liberal democrat in republican clothing.
Considering 99% of Americans never heard of him, a vote for this guy is simply a way for false conservatives or very foolish ones to help 0bama get re-elected.
Because he won't win. Therefore, a vote for him is a vote for $8 gasoline, trillions more in deficits, thousands more in highway deaths in paper mache' death traps, death panels to decide when you and I will die, no gas and oil wells on public land, and Marxist puppet majorities on the supreme court.
Good enough for me.
Four more years of Obama and we may have no nation left.
Same was said of Clinton. We are still here.
Romney will appoint liberal judges.
Romney will advance gay marriage.
Romney will push for gun control.
No conservatives will still be herein 2014 and 2016. The question is will they have a party? If Romney wins the WH which he won’t, they will have no party. If he loses the WH which he will, conservatives will take the GOP and flush out the liberal scum from its ranks.
> She is absolutely right. We will not survive another 4 years of Obama, we just wont
We’ll survive, but it would be much too interesting for my taste.
You fellas need new material. It’s as played out as Zero’s race card.
You don't get it do you? I'll try to explain it to you in a way that you might be able to understand.
You need to go back to DU where the other 0bama supporters hang out.
i know that Goode is not for 8 dollar gas or any of the other things you mentioned. I told the GOPe that I would not vote for Romney. Why should I show myself as a liar. If we support Romney this round, whose to say that they won’t put up Lindsey Graham next round or bloomburg or Susan Collins. The GOPe will go as far left as they can if they can get away with it. You vote for Romney and you are supporting the GOP going left.
The correct descriptive is rational pragmatists as opposed to sanctimonious self righteousists.
Virgil Goode for President 2012. Why cant you support this good guy?
Because I want B. Hussein Obama out of the White House at any cost and I WILL NOT WASTE MY VOTE???? I know nothing about this guy? Does he have a police record? Is he honorable? How does he handle his personal finances? Is his wife a Liberal bitch like Cindy McCain? etc. etc. etc.
You sound like you will not even have to “hold your nose” to vote for Romney.
ROMNEYCARE = OBAMACARE
Those who had no insurance are under Romneycare, are now able to get coverage. So instead of dropping in on the emergency room for their medical care they can make appointments to see a Dr. Romneycare is aimed at the small segment of uninsured.
She had no choice. It is what it is folks. If any have watched the last day with BO new campaign, “FORWARD”, it has now become abundantly clear of his intentions. He gets in we are done, and then he will say,”weren’t you paying attention? I said we were going to move FORWARD”.
Frightening and chilling.
Michelle is still a patriot and I hope she can stay in the arena of ideas and speak out. My only hope is that Romney wins and we take the Senate. The Teaparty rises up and guides policy further.
One can only hope and pray it works.
DU ? You’re the one pimping a Socialist Trojan Horse, Hoss.
Some people love the USA more than they hate the liberals.
I know that’s going to get me slammed but after seeing Avengers last night and having to get up this morning, my filter is slipping.
Liberals I can deal with, at least there is hope with them. Not with the Communists and Jihadis that are in the government right now.
Something lost on the head cases that use this forum to post their delusional "thoughts," to use the word advisedly, about some unknown guy getting elected.
It seems that FR is selecting for shrill headcases that are impervious to reason. Back when Neut burbled out his idiotic statement about a moon base and a Mars mission, I had some guy tell me that interstellar travel was possible. I can only assume that his conviction about interstellar travel came from his being abducted by aliens. I had some woman tell me that the government doing a background check before allowing you to buy a gun was a good thing. I had some a-hole call me a parasite because I thought that there were too many people on welfare. Frankly I'm getting kind of fed up with the wack jobs that hang around here.
I expect by November, many will worship the ground Romney walks on.
I find it amazing poster are accused of being a troll, on a conservative site, because you refuse to support a socialist.
I got a news flash fer ya Jack it's going to be one or the other. Learn to deal with it or go back to your mother's basement and play video games.
. When election day comes there will be two choices on the ballot liberal Romney and communist 0bama. Which one will you vote for?
Maybe, but if you vote for Goode, you get Obama.
Number 28 on your list of self back patting... Pro-Michele Bachmann.
Vote for Romney.
He’s not a Commie.
I wish there was a Republican Party where we could vote for a Presidential candidate because we LIKED them. Or even sort of agreed with them.
Instead, some are sitting here fawning over who gets to sit in the the back of the bus again, just the way our GOP-E 'betters' want it.
You said it.
Don’t vote = Obama win
write-in = Obama win
3rd party vote = Obama win
You can exercise any 3 of the options above. That’s your option. But don’t pretend that you stand on high moral ground if you do. You will not have done anything morally superior because you will have done your part to give us 4 more years of Obama. Nothing superior about that, as we’ve already learned by experience.
Then you will be happy, and we will have 4 more years of obama.
You are a Hostage to your closed mind.
I agree with your comment about the Republican party and its pathetic set of candidates, all the while knowing that I will vote for the candidate most likely to defeat him. Goode may be a wonderful candidate, but he isn’t going to win. The candidate most likely to defeat O. may, indeed, be nearly as bad, but I just can’t leave us to face 4 more years of the scourge that is Obama. I cannot.
Here’s the elephant in the room: All of the major political figures that those on this site respect have come out and said that hands down it is an easy decision to support Romney given that Obama is the democratic candidate. So all of these “ideal” former candidates / political figures recognize that there is a material difference between Obama and WHOEVER the Republicans nominate. (Note: that material difference is going to make a MATERIAL differnce in YOUR life). But life goes on and no one here offers a coherent explanation as to how this can possibly be. Obama is going to continue to destroy this country. At least with Romney we might get a temporary reprieve.
Exactly, this election was lost for Conservatives when Ryan bowed out.
You might as well beat your head against a wall as to use logic with these people.
I am curious how a guy with an approval rating of 34 percent - BEFORE the Obama slime machine turns both barrels on him - can win in November. And that is the point. The GOP-E stood back as Romney used scorched-earth campaigning to destroy any alternative to his inherently unpopular candidacy. And the GOP-E has knifed candidates in the back repeatedly for the last four years, from Sarah Palin in 2008 to Tea Party candidates in 2012. Yet they seem to think that they can yell at conservative skeptics of Romney and demand they fall in line for yet another RINO losing cause.
Sorry, it's going to take a LOT more than that.
