Conservatives and Romney work at working together
Google News/AP ^ | June 9, 2012 | Laurie Kellman, AP

Posted on 06/09/2012 11:40:10 AM PDT by Innovative

Conservatives at the core of the Republican Party are coalescing behind likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney faster than expected...

"I'm going (to support him) because it's my responsibility and, frankly, almost anything is going to be better than Obama," said Steve Troxel, chairman of the Lynchburg Republican Party in swing-state Virginia.

"The emerging consensus among conservatives is that the Republican House will lead the conservative charge and Romney will be in the White House to sign bills, rather than advance his own agenda," said Republican consultant Matt Mackowiak, who supported Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the primary. "Conservatives don't universally claim Romney as one of their own, but they appear to have united behind him, perhaps reluctantly, but without question."

Most conservatives are starting to face reality. The primaries are over, it's Obama or Romney. Period.

Most prominent conservatives stated they support Romney. It has been in the news. You can stick your head in the sand, but reality is as above.

It would be funny if it weren't so sad. The big Romneybots around here talk about pushing Romney to the right but are themselves suggesting that Romney shouldn't waste time on pointless social issues. Frankly, anyone who says Romney will be pushed to the right is either a moron or a liar.

For the good of the economy, the good of our defense and to keep more whacked-out liberals from holding lifetime appointments on the bench, we need Romney no matter how much we disagree with his social and religious views.

Four more years of Obama would be a disaster America may never recover from.

There's only one person with a realistic chance of denying Barack Obama four more years and that, for better or worse, is Mitt Romney. Any rational conservative has no choice but to hope he wins.

Virgil Goode has much more political experience than Mitt Romney, Gary Johnson, and Barack Obama, combined, but Virgil is running for ‘12 POTUS as a member of the Constitution Party, so Virgil’s total political credibility is moot! Politics is so strange.

Well said! I would add that we better do more than “hope” — at the very least we all need to get out and VOTE for Romney, as the only way to deny Obama a second term.

It may be the only way to deal with this is to initiate research into impeachment now. Fire that sucker up the day after he's sworn in, and get him out of office before the end of the week.

Now I know that's going to be difficult, but this man has secrets.......

“I would add that we better do more than “hope” — at the very least we all need to get out and...”

Campaign for the most conservative, Tea-Partying folks in every race - federal, state & local.

And we need to start groups like this in every state:

http://giveusourlandback.org/

I’d be happy to have the states BUY back the land to reduce the federal debt. But if we can even force the federal government to simply release it, there are umpteen federal agencies that would no longer be needed & Romney, being a reasonable human (I hope) would shut them down.

I know... But I can dream. :-)

I’m just sick of watching so called conservatives telling each other fairy tales in an attempt to build support. Lord Mittless won’t be pushed to the right and there will be no GOP challenge in 2016.

His supporters are spending as much time trying to drag us left as they are promising that Romney will be dragged right.

Completely disagree. Perhaps the Republican party talking heads are coming around -- it's an expression of that whole party unity thing the RINO's use to convince conservatives to support "compromise" which ultimately ends up further socializing the government and the economy. But from a grass roots perspective, we the conservative voting base are not at all fired up about voting for any candidate, regardless of party affiliation, that advocates corporate bailouts, healthcare rationing, homosexual advancement, and the killing of unborn babies. All it takes is 5 to 10% of the base to protest and the RINO loses. I'll be proud to be part of that 5 to 10% just so we can all be on the same side again, with the same goal of undoing what Obama and the rest of the Socialists / Communists are doing. It's better to be genuinely united in our efforts rather than enduring all the infighting as some of us in the party try to steer others in the party toward the Right when that is clearly not at all their personality.

They could hardly contain their interest in gay marriage ~ and right off the bat told Mitt he had to hire in a gay expert in international relations.

The people selling out to the Mittbots are totally delusional.

It's possible the Democrats will pick up on the Crist story and begin bing bonging that stuff off Mitt's closest staff people ~ mess him up going into the convention ~ make him look like a deluded idiot as he tries to find new staffers to tell him what he's supposed to say and do.

There is a point at which Mitt can be made to seem inadequate enough that the Democrats will actually get their own peeps out to vote. I was kind of hoping they'd just stay home, but this is the Foley/Craig gambit coming their way and I don't see old pervs like Axelrod letting that go past without a nibble of some kind.

Our local tea party group was approached with promises of power in the early spring. All we had to do was encourage Bachmann, Paul, and Cain to leave the race. I can’t say the guy was a Romney surrogate but he was no tea partier. We’re small town and rural people and we have our own individual thoughts and someone among us supported virtually every candidate.

I do know that any support Romney had among our tea party group had, crashed when the rules were changed in our state to save Mitt from the indignity of a tie. Right and wrong are important to us ignern’t hillbillies.

Not a good plan. In the entire history of the United States, only Franklin Pierce was elected as President and then lost his party's nomination for re-election. The probability of your plan succeeding approaches zero. If Romney win's, at worst we'll have to endure eight years of him before he hands the executive office back to the democrats. At best, we'll only have to endure him for four years before the democrats take control once again.

Romney will fight the conservatives in Congress tooth and nail, and, unlike with Obama, they will be powerless to fight back, because the leader of the Republican Party can’t be fought by the same party. His Obama like bills will become law.

History, including recent history with the Bushes, shows us the future.

How do you think we got the EPA (Nixon), and ADA (GWHB), just to name two of hundreds of bills extremely destructive to Americans?

With Romney as President, we are in for of the same.

Whether they want to believe it or not WE HAVE THE NUMBERS ON OUR SIDE.

As I"ve explained numerous times the American electorate is always pretty much balanced 50/50 around two poles, or modes in a bi-modal saddle. It's not 35/65 nor even 45/45 ~ it's really really really close to 50/50. That's why a movement by a minority group of some kind (racial, economic, age, social, linguistic, geographic) can tip the scale and give the victory almost unexpectedly to a different person than most pundits and experts thought possible.

Irrespective of the polling, imagine who is going to show up to vote in November. There will be a minimum of 130 million voters ~ that's 65 million to each side with a few here and there to the very small body of "independents' who in habit the 'fringe' between the two modes. (Note, Obama received more Democrat votes than anyone in history. George Bush received more Republican votes than anyone in history. All other Democrats and Republicans received fewer votes).

I have have no doubt Obama has upset a lot of his most avid fans. If they don't show up he could receive as few as 59 million (like Kerry who received the second highest total of votes). That'd put him about 3 million behind George Bush' 62 million. But that'd be a loss of as many as 9 million voters from what happened in 2008!

That's roughly a 15% switch ~ which would be absolutely incredible in anyone's book. Romney, or whoever, would eek out something less than a landslide even with that amount of defection from the Democrats.

The problem here is that with a squeaker like that there won't be any coat-tails for down ticket candidates.

A loss of 3 million Conservative voters would erase the difference between the two candidates ~ and entail about 5% loss of total Republican votes.

In a really tight race where Obama is pulling 60 million and Romney 60 million, it's a toss-up!

Romney's advisors have to look at the possibility that even with 100% of the unqualified Republican vote, and massive defections to non-voting status by 9 or even 10 million Democrat (that is, 2008 Obama) voters, their boy can still lose with a minor blip in Republican voting patterns and they could find themselves both losing the election AND losing control of the House and certainly of the Senate.

The way I see it Romney has to fire all his professional staff now and hire on people with no affiliation with party RINOs. Then, he has to purge the gay blades ~ the public holds us accountable for those guys even if they don't care about the Democrats.

He must also sign on to a Manifesto of Objectives agreed to by Conservative and TEA Party personalities throughout the party as well as the blogosphere (however that might be done ~ JR can figure it out).

Short of that, Romney cannot attract the Conservative base and will probably lose the race in an election where there are MASSIVE Democrat defections.

“If Romney win’s, at worst we’ll have to endure eight years of him before he hands the executive office back to the democrats. At best, we’ll only have to endure him for four years before the democrats take control once again.”

So it’s “best” to have the democrats in control as soon as possible?

Better yet, just leave hussein in place then, yes?

I truly do understand the principle behind a conservative who cannot vote for Romney. I was one.....who has now changed my mind. But to have ANY conservative wishing and hoping for democrat control is just beyond any sense whatsoever.

Absolutely. There’s a simple test. If I see Romney on the TV screen, I turn it up because I don’t mind looking at him and I want to hear what he has to say, which, by the way, I usually like.

If I see Obama on the TV screen, I change the channel quickly.

You miss the whole point ~ in Romney we have a candidate who will probably lose!

Even now his more rabid supporters are looking around for scapegoats to blame for that defeat. They've latched onto regular Conservatives.

With or without support we can't win with Romney and we need someone else.

Remember, 2008, Obama got 69 million. McCain got 59 million.

Obama has to lose 15% of his 2008 voters to end up with as many votes as our best vote getter ever got!

A realistic appraisal is that it is very unlikely that even Obama is going to suffer a 15% loss of Democrat voters, and it's Democrats we are talking about ~ not people who discuss things rationally like we do.

Sarah Palin was kind of my idol. I was all for her run for presidency. Oh, the fights I got into with people who were cynical about her.

Gee whiz, if I could get that energy back I’d clean out the refrigerator.

I still like her but I’m not waiting for her endorsement on anybody. She endorsed Cruz for Texas Senate and I’m still voting Dewhurst.

In fact, she’s losing respect from me the longer she holds out against a Romney endorsement.

You don't get it. Romney *is* a liberal, a stealth democrat. What's "best" is for him to get out of the race entirely and make room for a real conservative. That would guarantee a November 2012 success. But if he doesn't get out, and somehow actually wins the election, then "yes", the best thing that can happen is that we only have to suffer under him for four years before he hands the reigns on a silver platter back over to those democrats who aren't in stealth mode, so we can *try again* to run a real conservative as a republican four years later. And, HOPEFULLY, during his four years in office, Romney doesn't damage the republican brand so badly that we lose the Congress in 2016 -- which is a genuine and entirely horrific possibility. Romney, in one foul swoop, can undo all the good the Tea Party has brought over the last three years. This is chess, not checkers. If you want to win in the end, sometimes you have to sacrifice the Queen in the middle. I'd happily toss Romney from the board.

Not officially not yet but here’s her words from back in Oct.
We’ll see.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1011/65264.html

Asked if she will support the GOP nominee, Palin told
Levin: “I have confidence in that. I look forward to
supporting our nominee. … The right candidate will be
elevated that will be our nominee. We’ll be able to get
behind that person and make sure that Barack Obama is
replaced.”

Comments after the AK caucus in March where she voted
for Gingrich

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57392024-503544/sarah-palin-casts-vote-for-gingrich-at-alaska-caucus/

Palin also said in the interview that while she will
support Romney if he is the nominee, “To be brutally
honest...he’s not garnering a lot of that enthusiasm right
now” because Republicans are worried he is only winning
because he has more money than his rivals.

Romney actually has a far better chance of winning than the two hopefuls who were left standing, or sort of standing, at the end of the primaries.

Both Santorum and Gingrich would have been far easier to beat than romney.

Romney is not a liberal. I wish people would not insist that he is.

He’s perhaps not a total tea party type but everything he has said and done since I’ve been paying attention to him has been satisfactory to me.

You can call the sky red all you want to, but it’s still blue.

It’s a simple equation. If Romney loses, Obama wins. Who among us could possibly want that? Yet some seem to.

No, we want them both to lose. Badly. An absolutely humiliating defeat for them both. We want the grass roots of America to wise up. Rather than choosing which poison we want to drink, Romney or Obama, I want us to set the kool-aid aside for once. I want folks to stop voting "against" something and to start voting "for" something. I want to take a step toward a return to our Founders' vision rather than just talking about it and kicking the can down the road.

But if America isn't ready for that yet ... if things haven't gotten that bad yet ... if the sheople are still willing to drink from the cup handed to them ... then, "yes", let's at least be poisoned by our opponent rather than the "friend" who claims to be one of us.

The sky is blue and Romney is a liberal. Compared to my friends and neighbors, who are generally conservative republicans with a mix of well intentioned old school democrats, Romney is an *extreme* liberal. He's pro-corporate-bailout, pro-healthcare-socializing, pro-baby-killing, pro-gay-advocating, pro-gun-grabbing, and pro-government-growing. He was so obviously not a conservative that he could not even beat McCain in '08; McCain who is not exactly a bastion of conservative viewpoints himself. In fact, he was a third-place loser! The only thing that has gotten better about Romney over the last four years is his ability to smoothly flip flop and tell people what they want to hear. He's a fraud. And the sky is still blue.
