He is not trolling. He is being 100 percent Honest and you thinking that Romney is the next Ronald Reagan is disgusting. How dispicable are you to compare Romney with Reagan. You liberal freaks are killing the party. Get off of Free Republic....The perfect website for you is DU or some moderate at best website. You are DEFINITELY NOT A CONSERVATIVE if you believe that Romney is the next Reagan. You are 100 percent delusional....I am keeping your stupid post so when Romney does something liberal (which he will), I am forwarding your post to you. That is if you are still here.
” - - - this isnt 2008, anymore.”
Hmmmmmmmm - - - , really?
Lemme see now, in 2008 RINO McCain stated that he would not discuss anything about Obama that occurred before Obama became the Junior Senator from Illinois.
In 2012 RINO Romney stated that Incumbent Obama’s legal eligibility for office would not be discussed.
What happened in the past, stays in the past, (wink, wink).
I guess it all depends on how strongly a RINO wants to lose.
RINO Romney gets extra credit in the losing department, as he is the unrepentant Godfather of Obama”care.”
The RINOs sure can pick ‘em!
George Bush was the last Republican to win Michigan in 1988.
This is great news..
I take this to mean Romney is ahead in Ohio and also within the margin of error in PA.
I deal in realville not fantasyland. You can either vote for Obama or Romney. Any other choice is the same as not voting. That is just the way it is whether you or I like it or not.
Oh, stop the hyperbole. You sound like a child.
I didn’t compare Romney to Reagan (unless English isn’t your first Language)
Romney WILL do something Liberal. So did REAGAN, if you recall (remember the tax increases? The Social Security Bailout? Illegal Alien Amnesty? Regan’s support of the Brady Act? Etc??
Please, by all means, feel free to blow your hyperbole out of the orifice of your choice.
” - - - - They’re dying for Mittens to get the nomination ... “
If Romney was DUMPED in an OPEN Convention in Tampa, and a Dark Horse Conservative was Nominated - - - - - !
Oh me, oh my ! All of the Axelrod-Obama destruction plans would go up in smoke!
All that expense! All that planning! All those hours wasted, totally wasted! Oh- - - the humanity!
“Celestial God-Child from Planet Kolob”
Take that kind of crap back with you to DAILY KOS.
“They’re dying for Mittens to get the nomination ...”
He already has the nomination. What now?
Hardly anyone like admitting they’re wrong. The MSM went all in to get Obama elected in 08. Now, almost 4 years later, look up the definition of wrong in any dictionary and everyone sees a picture of the drive by media. Reality does not square with the narrative. I know it, you know it and even my mushy headed liberal wife who hasn’t worked in 3 years knows it. The media know it as well as even they’re getting laid off.
The best is yet to come. A vortex never reverses itself and the failed Obama presidency is in a death spiral like I’ve never seen before except for (possibly) the final days of the Nixon administration.
Walkers victory over the satinists reminds us all that real hope and change is just around the corner. The Tea Party is alive and well in spite of the GOP-e and their candidate Romney.
"Having" Romney win? Who will "have" Romney win? If he wins, won't it be because he got more votes than Obama?
That’s with the People’s Republic of Detroit in the mix.
Actually eight years of Granholm has a lot to do with MI turning red. I just posted this on a poll blog - -

This poll makes perfect sense. A reminder for non-Michiganders: GOP governor, GOP Sec. of State, GOP Attorney General, GOP state legislature, GOP state senate, conservative state supreme court, GOP congressional majority, etc.
Dont forget the punishment handed to the democrats in 2010 in Michigan, it was brutal.
A MI win is plausible, but by that time the election will have already been called for Mittens after taking NH, VA, NC, FL — electorally eliminating Bobo’s path to victory...
And Id rather take out the socialist in the GOP before taking out the socialist in the Democrat party.
Why do you dimwits keep ignoring the convention?
There is a perfect opportunity to dump romney’s sorry arse.
It’s hard to see how the Liberal Messiah can win if Michigan goes to Romney. Not impossible, just hard. Don’t get complacent.
Yeah we’re dimwits for not seeing that Romney, who already clinched the nomination, will be dumped at the convention.
A large part of the reason why the Federal dictators robing our states of their republican form of government with the regionally Representative senates was such a great evil.
Cities like Chicago latterly steal from the rest of the state forcing their burdens upon everyone else.
This is not a shock poll. Romney is originally from Michigan. The labor market in Detroit has collapsed. The unions are gone. Michigan is starting over. I full expect Romney will carry Michigan.
ABO WOLVERINES!!!! FUBO
Dear Buckeye...or is it Spartan? You don’t like the Wolverines, huh? Me neither.
Go Eagles. LOL
Throw in Flint and I'll almost believe you.
WOLERINES!!! as in “Red Dawn”
Can’t stand U of M or MSU for that matter.
Note that Michigan has a successful and popular Republican governor, the GOP controls both houses of the legislature: why would it be a surprise that Romney could lead Obama there?
Especially with Romney being exactly the kind of liberal ‘Pubbie that the folks of Michigan do seem to love.
I want Obama gone so much I’d crawl over glass to vote him out..It’s too early for me to get too excited about polls..but it is nice nevertheless to have them go my way.
I would do almost anything Imamginable to get Obama gone.
I am lovin’ and savin’ your great graphics!
Yea sure. We hear the same every four years about Michigan and PA. Yawn.
Way to go, Hattie.
We need to start rooting for our candidate instead of against him.
You are exactly right.
The voters nominated Mitt Romney.
The Republicans did not put up an attractive slate to begin with. The only one I could support was Perry and he got zero support.
I know many here wanted Santorum or Newt, but I really think we lucked out with Romney.
Santorum would have been vulnerable to have been painted as a right wing wacko and he was easily rattled and not good at defending himself.
Newt ... well, I love Newt, but you know he would have shot himself in the foot with his mouth which he could not control.
Romney has been steady and unruffled and has said and done all the right things. I really think now .. No, he wasn’t my preference ... but I really think now that we ended up with the candidate with the best chance of winning.
And that is very important to me and to the country.
Getting Obama out of our White House.
It’s kinda interesting, although not particularly attractive, that all the Romney haters are so nasty in their posts.
One of them posting here today used so many F bombs that he had 3 or 4 posts deleted before he got the message. (on another thread)
They have no rational argument so they resort to insults, delusional thinking and hyperbole.
I like the guy who said he would crawl over a swarm of zombies to vote against Obama.
I’m sure the media is saying “Michiganers are Racist!!!”
LOL! That, too!
Itll only be a shock to the liberals who have counted on the old northwest being in the bag forever!
Actually Michigan and Wisconsin are in the Midwest; not the Northwest.
They’re Midwest now. But they are still the old northwest, carved from the Northwest Territory in the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, along with Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.
Get rid of Detroit, and Michigan is as conservative as any Southern state.
I lived in MI for 10 years and that is partially true. I would add...”Get rid of Detroit AND the UAW members in the southern suburbs of Detroit (Downriver) and Michigan is as conservative as any Southern state.”
FWIW.. Michigan is beginning to change. The unions have fallen out of favor, both public and private and we have all just about had our fill of Detroit.
But who do you imagine stepping forward and getting the nomination if Mitt were ‘dumped’ at the convention?
What true conservative is waiting in the wings? If he exists, why didn’t he get into the race earlier and challenge Romney like Perry, Santorum, Newt, and Paul did?
And please don’t say Jeb Bush.
I agree the generic polls we are too far out for them to be precise in terms of exactly how the election will go down, but the Recall race isn’t a generic POLL.. they are EXIT polls from an actual election, that had a motivated electorate that happened.. so everyone questioned was a LIKELY VOTER... even more so because they were actually interviewed just after voting.
Secondly, yes, the election is 5 months away, almost to a day... and the typical “swing” voter normally would not be paying much attention to things.. and I am not suggesting that most of them are.. but they are getting their 401k statements, if they are lucky enough to have not had to cash them out, they are struggling, and having to sacrifice in numbers and ways that are not TYPICAL in a summer before an election...
REmember, right now, in America, there are FEWER TOTAL PEOPLE WORKING TODAY THAN THERE WERE THE DAY OBAMA TOOK OFFICE! That’s a STAGGERING thing, not a smaller percentage of folks are working, the actual total number is smaller.. and shows NO SIGNS of changing before November. You don’t have to be a political junkie to know, you ain’t working, or if you are you are working in a job well below your former earning and skill level struggling to make ends meet.
Don’t kid yourself, these polls and their internals have been showing trends for a LONG time.. and its a trend that OBama cannot overcome.
Groups that he won by huge margins in 08, won’t be going for him in those numbers this time, and the repressed republican turnout of 08 due to disgust with Bush, isn’t going to happen! They are motivated as hell to get rid of this guy.
His support among Catholics will be lower thanks to his decision to pick a fight with the church... Young folks ain’t going to be rushing to vote for the guy this time when 50% of them graduates of college can’t even get a job in their field. The only group that he might see gains in might be the homosexuals, but they by and large vote democrat anyway, and account for less than 2% of the population, so even a 10% improvement among them wouldn’t add up to more than a faction of a percentage point at the polls.
He has driven away the “blue dog” democrat, the working class middle and the lower middle, upper lower class working american who was traditionally socially conservative, but voted Democratic.. that entire segment is not going to vote for him in numbers remotely where it needs to for him to have any shot at winning, and not only will they not vote for him, he’s destroyed the relationship with the party for most of them.
This election is shaping up to be a blood bath for the democrats, not only Obama, but all up and down the ticket, the idea that 2010 was a one off, and the electorate has forgotten??? Nope, and most of the senators facing the electorate this fall will be facing it for the first time since voting in Obamacare the most hated legislation in modern times... You really think the voters are going to be any kinder now to them??? The Bill is less popular now that it was in 2010!
The Dems put a guy up who had no talent or ability, and he governed as a man with no talent or ability.. he simply ramrodded through what he wanted when he had the majority, and the congressional democrats for the most part complied.. once the price began to be paid for that however, he’s been able to accomplish nothing, and even with 2 years of congressional control, what did he do? Not one memorable bill or program that had a noteable positive impact.. The only bill remember is the OBAMACARE and its hated. Every level, this administration has been a disaster..
This election was ALWAYS republicans to lose, because this is a referendum on the most inept politician and pathetically small man ever to hold the post in the past 50 years EASILY, and honestly closer to 100 years.
Work hard, fight hard, but the idea that Obama has a prayer at winning the electoin is laughable on its face.
