Do Conservatives Have a Seat at Romney's Table?
None | July 4, 2012 | Self

Posted on 07/04/2012 5:48:25 AM PDT by Jess Kitting

Romney seems to have a "tin ear" when it comes to listening to conservative views.

Since it is nearly impossible to mount a successful campaign against him now and come up with another viable candidate who can win in the November election, we need to be sure that our voices are heard and heeded by the Romney campaign.

Question: Do conservatives have someone in Romney's inner circle who can influence him and make sure he sticks up for our values? Is there anyone from FreeRepublic who can represent us and our concerns on his team?

How can we get a seat at Romney's table and insure that our voices are heard and our values upheld?

Yes they have a seat, but every time they go to sit in it some jack-a-leg RINO pulls the chair out from under them and the RINO’s all have a good laugh.

The Seat for Conservatives at Romney's Table:





“The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.

The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.”

- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006


"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
“Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,”

[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006


"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced
,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."
- Boston Globe 7/25/2005


Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys.
He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."
- U.S. Senate testimony by Gov. Mitt Romney, 6/22/2004 P>


"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!

Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

No, unless by seat you mean something for some ass to prop upon.

Write a check out in his name for a large amount of money.

Well, maybe they’ll be allowed to clean up after the meal is over.

Good question... and I fear it is one with only one answer... we can no more get a seat at the romney table than we can at the obama table. Both camps hate Conservatives and wish they could just take our wealth and destroy us. THAT is exactly what I think because THAT is exactly what romneycare and obamacare are all about. Do not believe me... ask marx and lennin then... and I have had almost 40 years of republican activism to back up my opinion. I know the difference between being a part of something or supporting one evil over another because it can be viewed as slightly less evil than the other.

I despise the gop/e and mitt as much if not more than they despise me. Hey mitt... will you reverse obama’s orders to not enforce US Immigration Law? “No Comment”. Hey mitt... do you agree with Arizona Immigration Law? “No comment”. See what I mean?

We knew that his history was far from conservative. He learned his lesson in 2008 and was smart enough to at least try to court us during the primaries, but after the convention seals the deal, you can bet that we are going to be “etch-a-sketched”. Recruit and Replace before it is too late.

As my tagline says, the next president is going to be a liberal. We need to focus on getting conservatives elected to congress to cunter that.

No.

It’s not too late to repeal & replace the presumptive GOP nominee.

I look at the election like this:

I’m Churchill.
Romney is Stalin.
Though I know what he is, I have to work with him (for now) to deal with this Hitler guy.

You know the Whole thing is Romney vs Obama.

I remember how all the freepers wanted anybody but Romney (I was one of them),But Romney won anyways.

I know that America needs to get rid of ObamaCare.

I see how anti Romney some freepeers are and I realize that how irrelevant they and this site can be when they have their heads in the sand, and,

Romney has a better chance of winning with out the freepers help.

So I now feel better about getting Repealing ObamaCare.

Most Americans will vote just the opposite as the anti Romney freepers thought.

Keep up your reasons not to support Romney.

People will reject the insanity,

And by the way It’s the economy stupid,

Not in the heads in the sand conservative babble.

I am in complete agreement with you. The soap box hasn’t worked, and the ballot box is just going to change the players so soon it will be cartridge box time and it will be nasty I fear.

Might want review your history book there fella. Winston sought aid from America not the USSR. FDR and his commie advisors forced Stalin upon Great Britain and kowtowed to everyone of "Uncle Joe's" demands throughout the war.

Ever wonder how the brutal Soviet murderer acquired the kindly sobriquet "Uncle Joe" only after FDR sold the remainder of his soul? Uncle Sam and Uncle Joe working hand in hand just like your family. Churchill repeatedly warned FDR about that Georgian SOB.

So where's the USA in your analogy?

Rhetorical question, just a point to ponder in memory of our Declaration of Independence from a foreign despot. Prayers up for the USA.
