Remember When?

Remember when Romney turned away Stimulus funds because they were wasteful and infringed on the Tenth Amendment?

Remember when Romney led the fight against Obamacare with his bold op-eds, inviting scorn and being called a liar for daring to mention the unavoidable rationing of services ("Death Panels") ?

Remember when Romney led the GOP to an astonishing victory in the 2010 mid-terms?

Remember when Romney inspired thousands across the nation to sleep outside book stores in hopes of meeting him?

Remember when Romney Flew to Arizona to stand by the embattled Governor Brewer as she was targeted by the Administration for enforcing the State's Laws, which are a mirror of Federal law?

Remember when Romney stood up for Sarah Palin after she was accused of being an accessory to murder?

Remember when Romney wrote withering op-eds which showed beyond all doubt that "Climate Change" is a scam?

Remember when Romney reached out to conservatives and said that they have been treated like "Bitter Clingers" by the Lamestream Media, but that they are the Salt of The Earth, and should keep up the Good Fight?

Remember when Romney had thousands on their feet for hours in the windy desert outside Harry Reid's town to kickoff the "TEA Party Express" and then met the bus in Boston on tax day to finish the tour with a bang, thus ensuring that this event got media attention?

Remember when Romney worked tirelessly during the last week of the 2010 campaign by flying allover the country to appear at events for conservatives right up to the last day?

Remember when Romney worked tirelessly to get John McCain and Sarah Palin elected in 2008, because four years of Obama would destroy the country, and so even if he didn't agree with everything they said, they were certainly "Better than Obama. Anybody But Obama"?

Remember when Romney Stood tall with Nikki Haley as Mike Huckabee's South Carolina lackeys accused her of sexual improprieties?

Remember when Romney asked the Israelis why they are always apologizing when they have nothing to apologize for?

Remember when Romney Flew to Madison WI on Tax Day to stand up to the angry mob that was gathered to force Scott Walker out of office?

Remember when Romney showed us the insidious hidden costs of the $4.00 a gallon gas that we've gotten used to, and how it's hampering the economy?

Remember when Romney had campaign operatives conspire to make a movie about him that was based on demonstrably false tenets?

Remember when Romney stood tall and denounced those who made a movie about Sarah Palin, pointing out that she was nowhere near the caricature that was portrayed in the movie, and said that she was a substantive force for conservatism for now and for years to come?

Remember when Romney had his e-mails released to the public, and the fishing expedition revealed that he was a Governor who showed courage, integrity, and a warm humanity when these documents that were written under the assumption of privacy were released, yet only showed what a good guy he truly was?

Remember when Romney had Obama's goons conspire with jealous GOP operatives who'd lost their "Gravy Train" under his reforms, and was sued into bankruptcy?

Remember when Romney had a friend of Roger Ailes move in next door, and gather every bit of unsubstantiated gossip floating around about he and his wife and kids from the past 30 years or so?

Remember when Romney's kid joined the Army, and went to serve his country with honor in Iraq and Afghanistan while learning the family business for the day that he takes the reins?

LATE EDIT: I will cease and desist these type of posts when Sarah Palin emphatically and enthusiastically endorses Mitt Romney, and when he and his attack surrogates stop their campaign of Personal Destruction of Sarah Palin. I do no think that I am harming his campaign because he has assured us that we will all vote for him in the end. I am merely comparing and contrasting. What was true last October 4th is true today. Including my desire to see Obama leave office.

We can’t afford another 4 years of the big Zero. But there are hoardes of leftists manning posts all over the place. It will take more than a namby-pamby Romney to clean the Augean stables.

The task is clear to me.

We have to find some way to MAKE Romney govern as a conservative.

His track recording Mass is not promising, but nevertheless he’s what we have.

As you can tell by my posting, I am less than thrilled with him. In fact I think he’s as far from a conservative as we could get, and yet less than 2 years after the fantastic 2010 midterm wins, this is what we have to work with.

I guess that the answer is electing as many conservatives as we can to the House and Senate, and having them hold the Leadership in Congress AND in the White House accountable.

Don’t let them constantly promise to fight after the next election when it’s more advantageous, because that next election never gets here, and we end up with conservatives getting blamed without ever really having had a shot at running things to see if the ideas would work or not.

You have as much chance as making the RINO ROmney
conservative as making Obama conservative.

ROMNEY = OBAMA and makes every point moot.

Romney was “chosen” to LOSE, but fortunately
he is NOT the candidate yet, and can still
pull out and save America.

Excellent post, friend. How anyone could look at these glaring omissions on Romney's part, and still wave pom poms for him, is entirely beyond me.

Obviously, for some people, only the R on his sleeve matters. Some others are more truthful with themselves and others, when they admit what a poor, poor choice this man is, while at the same time positing that they've really got nowhere else to go under these circumstances.

For myself, I simply refuse to vote for such a putrid candidate. I'm not willing to give up my last shred of personal honor and integrity to simply 'win' an election - as if electing a Republican Socialist over a Democrat Socialist moves the ball down field for us anyway.

In fact, I think Romney's being put into the game to intentionally lose yardage for our side. He may wear our jersey, but no way in hell is he on our team.

I don’t remember dat!


I do remember when Willard made cheap abortions possible in his state, championed sodomite rights, raised taxes, claimed to believe in global warming, said coal plants kill people, supported Planned Parenthood, and said that homosexuals should be able to adopt children. For all of that, I am morally opposed to Romney.

Romney is little different than any third party candidate. Most of his following, such that it is (20% perhaps) does come, more or less, from one party, but he has a fan club in the MSM.

Just remarkably like Jugears who tried that back during the Clinton years.

The only difference is he paid for a palace coup inside the Republican party.

The guy can't win ~ really ~ people see through the propaganda and they know what Romney is.

The past three years tends to remind me of a recurring plotline found in many westerns: A town is totally beset by a gang of evil villains, running roughshod over the townsfolk. The townsfolk send for a talented gunslinger, begging him to battle the corrupt horde to save the town for decent folks. At great personal cost, through blood, sweat and tears, the gunslinger defeats them and drives them away. But now safe and secure, the townsfolk don’t invite the gunslinger into their homes, and don’t want him around. Snubs him. Regards him now as too ‘uncivilized’ for their company. And the town descends back into its petty corruptions.

Palin reminds me of the gunslinger who took on Obama and his agenda when it was most tough, and few others really did, and received nonstop, virtually unprecedented hellfire (from the media as well as supposed allies) for it. After the successes of the Tea Party and the 2010 election, she’s shoved aside by the feckless, cowardly town leaders of Rove/Romney and the GOP-e, who are only interested in restarting their old gravy-train back up, as they and their minions sneer down at the ones who liberated them.

Or, simply hold Romney to what is really conservative when he is voted in.

That is what I’ll take from this.

Sadly, Romney does not impress. I don’t think he or the GOP even knows what conservative is or means.

Would haved LOVED another candidate!

Nonetheless, I literally cannot wait to vote for Romney, and I am not kidding or being sarcastic in any way.

In the very least Romney will be answerable to the voters in 4 years.

Obama is answerable to no one even now, and quite frankly I don’t think he will leave the white house whether he loses or not.

Remember....there is a Senate and a House of Representatives. Perhaps, concentrating on those races would be more productive. Palin isn’t going to run for President.

Romney is the dude we have to stop the reign of terror in the White House. Not my first choice, second choice, third choice...but, it is imperative we stop the Obama regime. Palin has said the same...anyone but Obama.

If you believe as I do, that we are in a serious Constitutional Crisis and could very well lose our Liberties, our way of life and our Country, it is time to fight this criminal Obama. Vote him out of office, take back the Senate and hold the majority in the House.

They can keep Romney on the straight and narrow. Do this for your country and your children’s future. We are at the crossroads.

You are exactly correct. We need to elect conservatives to Congress in droves, and put legislature on Romney’s desk.

We also need to counter the maudlin sob stories and faux civil rights victims that will be trotted out when programs are curtailed.

Just looking conservative does NOT make you a conservative!

So is drinking the GOP koolaide of ABO with RINO MYTH O'Rombaney. Since when did 2 evils make a good? Twins in thinking, signing legislation, etc. Trading one d socialist for an r socialist does not compute.

When bad seed is sowed on bad soil it produces a bad crop. For all those who complain of Snowe, Graham, Collins and the former Specter this is what you will get if you go ahead and drink the koolaide

13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man.
14)For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether [it be] good, or whether [it be] evil.
