It seems this wasn't posted -- it is from a couple of weeks ago, but it's important for conservatives to see that Santorum is firmly supporting Romney.

ALL conservatives with any sense do so -- we can't survive another 4 years of Obama.

We were discussing this very thing earlier today. You were on the thread.

Basically real Conservatives are more critical of their fellows who tell them "go ahead, do what the leftwingtard wants" than they are otherwise.

So, Santorum reveals himself to be a professional politician who signed a document that said he'd support the party nominee(s).

So what?

“ALL conservatives with any sense do so — we can’t survive another 4 years of Obama.”

Those four years include the following:

2 Potential Supreme Court Appointments (Want two more Sotomayors?)

4 more years of deficit spending (Think Obama will ever lay down the veto to any of this, put in mind he tolerates double the deficit of Bush on a bad year)

Which would you prefer more, a president who flip-flops over as little as weeks, or one who flip-flops over a period of years, Romney is mainly the latter.

Fourth, and most important, Obama will take re-election as every bit the motive to turn even further left, and push more of what he does to the left than he already is. Romey would be in a Vice Grip with the left against him from cognitive dissonance, and the right really holding him up to a fire, unless he’s got some conservative surprises, he’s likely to be a right-wing Harry Truman, tries to make it for re-election, but is shot down in the primaries by his own parties, and on the attempt at a second term as well.

And “pretend-conservatives” are viciously critical of the GOP nominee, while never having a bad word to say about Obama.

That is the only salient point in this election.

Diogenes' juvenile wailing on every post notwithstanding, the best thing for America is that Obama and all of his minions and henchmen be kicked out.

There is simply no other choice.

One thing is for sure. If he ever runs for president again that I will not have to debate in mind for one second that I will not vote for him.

Which is to be expected and I've said all would do so all along. However, I'm not an American Idle voter and couldn't care less about endorsements, half or whole hearted. I gave up caring what the popular kids thought way back in middle school.

Moderates and RINOs are lying manipulative bottom feeding scum.

“Romney sucks. He is not a winner.”

If Romney is one thing, he IS a winner — he turned the Olympics around and turned around many failing businesses.

And we hope he will turn around the current path to decline we are on, as a country.

You have some stuff in your ear.

Spewed out of your mouth.

Look, these personal attacks have to stop. They are not allowed. If your boy were a real man he would have advised you of the inadvisability of angering us.

Turns out he's not a real man, and he didn't tell you to keep your mouth shut, so you've angered us.

We want the GOP-e deleted from the Republican party, not given the keys to the White House.

It's time to act.

None of which is to the point.

Saying that Obama’s opponent “sucks” besides being a bit childish, reads like an Elect Obama 2012 campaign poster.

You should call up the DNC and suggest it for their new slogan

BTW, obama is known for only two things ~ total stupidity and obamaKKKare.

I don't believe I've ever seen you come near that level of dismissive language.

You know why? Cause your boy is also stupid - Bain's 'faceman', and he invented romneyKKKare.

“Look, these personal attacks have to stop”

I agree. Look in the mirror and say that to the person you see. I don’t engage in personal attacks, but I have received quite a few from others, yet I don’t respond in kind.

People engage in personal attacks or are accusing others of it, when they ran out of cogent arguments.

You say: “We want the GOP-e deleted from the Republican party, not given the keys to the White House.”

So you don’t want the Republicans in the WH, but you are fine with Obama being there for another four years...

I think we should remove you people from Republican politics before you get us all hurt. Really, I don't believe I've ever seen such low morals in any election (outside of one involving Democrats) as in the primaries with Romney.

His supporters are totally unprincipled, immoral, and not worth listening to.

In 08 he defeated McCain by 10% in the Michigan primary. In 2012 he could only squeak out a tie with Santorum so his establishment buds had to change the rules in the middle of the night to give Mittless the win. Pure Obama style tactics.

No, the GOP-e and their running dog lackeys are NOT real Republicans. They are, if I may coin a phrase, just the same as the Obots.

They've become a drag on the Republican party.

Regarding personal attacks, when you accuse people who oppose Romney of being FOR OBAMA that's fighting words!

The choice is Romney or Obama. Bashing Romney only helps Obama. Helping Obama means being FOR Obama. QED

If I were to ultimately support Romney, it sure as hell wouldn’t be because if anything that zealot screwball had to say.

We had several conservative candidates during the primary, Saintorum wasn’t one of them.

After the cheating that took place in the Virginia primary the state Republican committee took a very negative view toward holding another primary and has opted for using a "convention" to select the Gubernatorial nominee next year.

It is entirely possible that Romney does not have any real heart felt support among convention delegates.

It's obvious that neither he nor his supporters are trustworthy people.

Well, in my dreams Sarah Palin would march in there and pipe up “Hey Guys I’m back in the race!” And Mitt would swoon before her charm and say “Fellows, she’s the gal. Draft her.” And out the door comes a Palin/Mitt ticket. GOP polls climb to 70% approval. Obama loses a 50 state landslide. The Senate becomes 67-33 GOP, not only filibuster proof but supermajority. The House has 400 Republicans in it. Barack Obama and Joe Biden both have fatal heart attacks on the same day, and Boehner finishes out Obama’s term.

Now I wake up. It’s Mitt Romney vs. Barack Obama.

Santorum was an enthusiastic Romney man in 2008 and Arlen Specter in 2004 and Arlen Specter for President in 1996, and he was an anti-Reagan and pro-abortion republican before running for office himself in 1990.

We knew where his head is at.

A win for Romney is a second term for Obama.
