Romney: I Will Pick A Conservative Running Mate
RCP Video ^ | 7-18-2012 | RCP transcript

Posted on 07/18/2012 5:28:41 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot

During a Bowling Green, Ohio, town hall on Wednesday, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney assured a tea party supporter that his pick for VP will be "a conservative," and responded quickly to an "angry mom" who called the president a "monster" that he wouldn't use that term.

I will not support the permanent marginalization of Conservatives and the leftward thrust of the GOP. Vote for Romney and forget about EVER seeing a Conservative candidate again. As Sola Veritas correctly pointed out “assisted” Evil is worse than “oppossed” Evil. 2016 or bust (no matter who is in the White House).

It is a sad day when we find ourselves thinking of voting for a socialist to protect our nation from a Marxist communist.

> "...replace THEIR pro-gay, pro-abortion liar with OUR pro-gay, pro-abortion liar..." /s

That is PRECISELY why I WILL NOT vote for Romney.

Voting for Romney out of fear of Obama is CHOOSING EVIL.

I WILL NOT VOTE FOR EVIL, NO MATTER IF IT IS "LESSER"!

I'm writing in Sarah Palin. Then regardless of which liberal SOB wins, at least I can live with myself for having NOT contributed to electing a Liberal.

I WILL VOTE FOR conservative Republicans in the House and Senate and other “down ticket” positions. However, nothing can get me to support Romney.

Agree! We can survive if Obama gets re-elected, if we take the house and senate with conservatives. The country is a mess, and will get worse, but we can turn it around. Just not so sure if Romney is elected.

Not voting will be the cause of Obama getting in..............Remember evil triumphs when good men (or women) do nothing.

You must have missed the part where it said they WILL be voting at the top of the ticket -- just not for Romney. And spare us the sophistry that voting third-party is "the same as voting for Obama" -- a third party vote favors neither Obama nor Romney. A leftist Green Weenie who votes third party, a disillusioned Democrat who votes third party, a high-minded independent who votes third party, an angry Libertarian who votes third party, and a conservative sick of the charade of Obama vs Obamalite who votes third party, will be favoring neither Obama nor Romney, but ALL will be contributing to lessening the popular mandate of whichever statist wins, Obama or Romney.

The last time it happened where a president was elected by a split plurality was Clinton, where a full 57% of Americans voted for somebody else. Clinton's lack of popular mandate made him vulnerable enough for the Republican Revolution to follow in the next mid-term, and that Revolution would probably not have happened if HWB had been re-elected or if Clinton had been elected by a majority.

There's only one way to vote for Obama, and that's to mark his name on the ballot.

Likewise, there's only one way to vote for government tyranny, and that's to mark a statist's name on the ballot. A lot of Republicans are on the verge of being frightened into voting for government tyranny.

I'll be joining kevkol and Sola Veritas in voting for a plurality. It's the best way I can exercise my franchise at the top of the ticket to give conservatives in Congress an advantage over the statist D or R guaranteed to win.

I agree. I don’t understand the mentality.

Rather lose than win just to meet their specific agenda and, worse yet, the strength of their party.

Their pity party affects every conservative and the health of our nation.

Sometimes you just have to hold your nose rather than put it up in the air and walk away.

“If Obama is re elected it won’t be the stupid cattle mentality folks of the left I will blame but it will be the do nothings on the right.. I WANT this “Abort them until birth man voted out of office” and I ask you to please reconsider........Please”

Then you had better take that up with Jim Robinson who is the founder and owner of this sit. He won’t vote for Romney either. Tell Jim Robinson you “blame him.”

I AM NOT A DO NOTHING. I am ACTIVELY OPPOSING BOTH Obama and Romney by voting third party. IF you chose to SELL OUT and be a slave of the GOP Establishment and support the loser Romney...that is your choice. However, don’t you DARE denigrate those of us with more priniciple that lines we WILL NOT CROSS. Voting for Romney is a line I WILL NOT cross.

This ought to really tick you. I show the flag of Oklahoma on my page, because that is my native state and where my heart is. However, I am currently a resident of Missouri. Missouri is a toss-up state. I’m going to vote out the liberal Senator Claire MsCaskill(D), and reelect congresswoman Vicky Hartler(R). However, I will vote third party to keep Romney or Obama from getting my vote. IF the GOPe want me to side with them, they better get some other than the evil Romney. As Alan Keyes wrote in a recent article...there is “no lesser of two evils” when one has to chose between Obama or Romney. In Missouri, my voting third party definitely hurts Romney...for I have always been a dependable GOP nominee supporter since 1976...but NOT with Romney running.

The persons you need to be talking to are the GOPe that have wrecked any chance of a victory by backing Romney. Blame them, not me.

When push comes to shove.................IF Romney is the only canidate then Yes I will put the blame were is lies. I agree that the GOP is useless and they have not earned our votes by thier actions BUT I will not use that as an excuse not to do all I can to make sure Obama is not re elected. Meaning by VOTING and other things like calls, donating and such. I too am very active in this election...Heck I wanted Newt. But that did not work out. So I move on, I will cast my vote in November and hope that most people who think as I do will also. So many people gave their all to make sure we have the right to vote......to have a tantrum and refuse to vote because the person you wanted is not on the ballot is just plan wrong. Obama is counting on people just like you to not vote for Romney...I am sure he and his kind have tingles up their leg in hopes that you do not vote GOP! A house divided can not stand and the goal right now is to make Obama a ONE TERM PRESIDENT.............then take on the GOP! You have a choice and the free right to do as you please but I also can lay the cards on the table. By not voting GOP Obama wins, PERIOD.........that is something we do not want. I understannd how you feel but there is something bigger then your feeling at stake right now..........Again please re think it and do as you want. I am VOTING PRO LIFE.

***No, but flame, shame and blame is part of your game. Why do you come onto a conservative website and try to separate conservatives from their conservative principles to get them to vote for a librul? What you’re doing is NOT conservative. Everyone would be better off if you were chasing RINO squishes and mushy middlers rather than sowing discord among conservatives.

For the life of me, I do not understand why JimRob puts up with faux-conservatives like you. Y’all deserve the zot.

A house divided can not stand
***Romney and the GOP-E think they can win this election without conservatives. They’re probably right, because zer0bama has been a disaster. So it’s the GOP/Romney who have chosen to divide this house. Do all of us a favor, and chase after those mushy middlers rather than sow discord among conservatives. That’s where we have common ground.

___________________________________________________________________

I’m a big tent republican.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1821435/posts?page=6245#6245
Here’s an analogy to work with. Take a small box and fill it with some rocks. Then add some rice, filling it to the top. Now take all the same stuff, but in a different order. Put in the rice first, then add the rocks. What you’ll find is that if you put in the big stuff first, the small stuff will fit around it. But if you put in the small stuff first, the big stuff won’t have room. The republican tent is the box. The Big issues are the socon issues, to be put in first. The little issues are things that can be accommodated around the bigger stuff. A candidate who tries to focus on the smaller issues first and leave out the bigger issues has no way of getting all of us into the tent. He splits the party. The candidate who gets the big stuff right and as much of the little stuff that will fit, he can fit more into the tent. We’re often amazed at how much rice can keep fitting in. Rudy Giuliani flunks some of the big issues, and on some of the little issues it looks to me like anyone else’s rice would do just as well. All that remains for us to agree on is which are the bedrock principles and which are not. Why would there be so much invective aimed at rudy from the right? Because there are some bedrock principles that he is leaving out. Bad move. I see rudybot postings all the time saying that they would vote for Hunter, and I see socon postings that say they would not vote for rudy. That’s a BIG indicator of a few bedrock principles that are being left outside the tent in order to let in some rice.

I agree that the GOP is useless and they have not earned our votes by thier actions BUT I will not use that as an excuse not to do all I can to make sure Obama is not re elected.

What is Bill Ayers was the [R] nominee? Would your above statement sill hold or is that "over the line" for you? I hope at least that would be over your line. I have higher standards, and Willard is over my line by a few miles.

Obama is counting on people just like you to not vote for Romney...

More importantly, the GOP-e is counting on Conservatives like you(?) to vote for Willard and will use that as your consent for the [R] to add infanticide,homosexualagenda,gun-grabbing statism to the [R] national platform.

I am VOTING PRO LIFE.

Q: How many [D]'s will suddenly oppose abortion if Willard is elected?
A: None.

Q: How many squishy [R]'s will feel its safe to show their true colors and support abortion if Willard is elected?
A: More than none.

Willard = net PRO-LIFE support loss.

You can apply the above to any social constitutional issue.

there is something bigger then your feeling at stake right now

You are right about that. The future of the [R] party is at stake. It can continue to mutate into the Marxists crap on the other side of the aisle or come to its senses and re-embrace the United States Constitution. Nominating Willard (who spent more than McCain did the whole 2008 primary to lie, smear and sink front-runner Newt in FL) is a huge step in the wrong direction. Willard's Repulican Party is not only nothing worth fighting for, its a more serious threat to the Constitution. I'll take my chances.

Jim:

It is very likely true that all these ABOs who are sowing discord among conservatives are causing far more damage to conservatism than any ‘lost’ votes for Romney. I haven’t seen a single one of them convince a conservative to give up his principles and pull the lever for Romney. But I am seeing damage to Free Republic and conservatism.

Let’s say, by all their efforts, they convince 3 of us to yield. But in the process they berate & harrass 300 conservatives. They cause 100X more damage than they repair.

To: Kevmo; All
I haven’t seen a single one of them convince a conservative to give up his principles and pull the lever for Romney. But I am seeing damage to Free Republic and conservatism.

That's one way to look at it, but frankly, I think the vehement and vitriolic ABOers, whom I find easy to forgive as they are mostly that way because they're scared and angry, are actually the minority of ABOers in general.

I think most ABOers are more inclined to want unity and civility, and have as much despair as any of us looking at the prospect of Romney.

Most important, whether the fellow patriots who are ABOers that we debate with here are vitriolic or civil, either way, discussion ensues and hopefully day by day, drip by drip, more and more conservative patriots on the verge of voting for statist Romney, will instead see the better sense, if seemingly riskier gamble, of heeding their common sense and gut instinct, which was correct from the start: Romney is bad news. Just as they thought all along, and that the conventional thinking of "Well, we have to vote for him 'cause he's the nominee even though we despise everything the guy stands for," has outlived its usefulness and become counterproductive.

Instead of letting fear, anger, and a sense of helplessness dictate how we vote, we are surely better guided by principles that unite us, and cool calculation of risks. Risk is the price you pay for opportunity. There is ZERO risk with Romney; he is guaranteed to make liberalsm more powerful in both parties. Therefore, there is ZERO OPPORTUNITY with Romney.

Sooner or later, smart patriots all will figure that out. Let's hope before November.

Frankly, I'm glad to see ABO-reluctant-Romney folks on FR -- it is a sure sign that despite Obama's most cherished desire, we REMAIN UNITED, though we disagree on the best way to overcome the sources of authoritarian government tyranny that so threaten our freedom and the freedom of our grandchildren.

“Again please re think it and do as you want. I am VOTING PRO LIFE.”

If you really think Romney is “pro life”, then you have become a fool, because you have been deceived. Romney has a definite record of being pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, pro-government statist. Plus, he is a avid member of an insidious cult....started by the L. Ron Hubbard of the 19th Century. Romney is poison...he is no better than Obama.

I see no advantage of a Romney admistration over an Obama one. Both are bad. I WILL NOT COMPROMISE. You really need to shut up about promoting Romney.

_______________________________________

And people like you helping Obama win a second term is conservative? Are you joking? My first, second and third choice didn't win the primary. Unlike you, I'm opting to act like an adult and vote for Romney to remove Obama from office.

The fact that folks like you have more rage at Romney than Obama, after what Obama’s already done to this country, and are willing to help hand Obama a second term is sick! If Obama wins, we'll hold people like you responsible.

If your preferred candidate had won the primary, and others did what you are doing, you'd be expressing outrage. Just stay home and let the grown-ups take care of removing the Marxist.

Oh, and you might want to ask JimRob why the FReepathons are taking so long to meet goals the past few months. When long-time members are ridiculed and insulted because we're choosing to actively try and remove Obama, by voting for the WINNER of the GOP primary, then people will find other sites to call home. We're trying to actively remove Obama. What in the heck are you doing? Nothing but having a sorry a$$ pity party. "Rebellion On!" Pfft.

after what Obama’s already done to this country, and are willing to help hand Obama a second term is sick!
***This, right here is utter and compleet bowlsheet. Voting FOR someone is all you can do. Voting for joe sixpack instead of Romney means you voted FOR joe sixpack, you didn’t vote FOR Obama. If the GOP wanted our votes, they wouldn’t continue to stab conservatives in the back, time and again.

If Obama wins, we’ll hold people like you responsible.
***Yup, there it is. The alibi. Like the guy who pretends to hurt his thumb before playing golf — if he plays well it was inspite of his sore thumb and if he doesn’t play well it’s because of it. Well, BullShiite. People like YOU should simply be zotted. You obviously aint conservative. You’re here to stir up discord and blame us afterwards if your bozo doesn’t win. Those are standard republican tactics and Free Republic is NOT a republican website.

I don’t like Romney as POTUSA and especially CinC, not having taken his turn in actual armed defense of the USA. However I am not as rigid as you seem to be mainly because I strongly believe Obama and all of his enablers are a real and dangerous threat for the USA which overrides my angst about Mitt. With this said if Romney does not choose to go with an established conservative person, someone of a Tea Party attitude, and if he chooses someone of the Mormon background, my chips are off the table. As to the Mormon thing, I have good friends who are Mormons but having two people of the same faith on the ticket is bit too much for me and would probably mean the election is down the tubes.

If your preferred candidate had won the primary, and others did what you are doing, you’d be expressing outrage.
***Well, duhh, because our preferred candidate would be conservative. Anyone going tribal on a conservative is obviously NOT a conservative. Kinda like what you’re doing, right here.

Just stay home and let the grown-ups take care of removing the Marxist.
***Who says I’m staying home? I’m writing in a conservative republican at the top of the ticket, straight republican all the way down. Of course, with all you ABO Romney Rump Rangers running around causing ill will with conservatives, I can see why they’d stay home.

Oh, and you might want to ask JimRob why the FReepathons are taking so long to meet goals the past few months.
***This seems to come up every election year with you blowhard CINOs.

When long-time members are ridiculed and insulted because we’re choosing to actively try and remove Obama, by voting for the WINNER of the GOP primary, then people will find other sites to call home.
***Here’s a hint: If your candidate has a truthfile associated with him, it means he aint conservative. If he’s the winner of the GOP primary, that’s great, but Free Republic is not a GOP website, it is a conservative one. That doesn’t seem to get through your thick skull. People calling other sites home is exactly what happened with TBL or whatever the latest anti-Freeper site is. Before that it was Wideawake, Clown Posse, Darwin Central, probably half a dozen others.

We’re trying to actively remove Obama.
***Good. Go and convert some obots into mittbots.

What in the heck are you doing?
***Defending conservatism from republicans and other non-conservatives.

Nothing but having a sorry a$$ pity party. “Rebellion On!” Pfft.
***You are becoming worse than a non-conservative. You’re crossing the line to ANTI-conservative. For the life of me, I don’t understand why JimRob doesn’t zot anti-conservatives like you.

Actually I am really starting to get ticked with the HATE on Mitt stuff I find here.. reminder.... two more Sotomayors and Kagans for your lack of efforts....

NO SALE.

You don't think Willard would nominate a tranny (like the one on the fed bench in CA) or muslim? Look at his nominee record from MA. You don't think Willard will "reach across the aisle" when choosing?

Worse yet, the lib that Willard nominates, who may be just as bad, will get Republican support.

Both choices are Evil and each brings different consequences just as bad. I don't think enough FReepers have wrapped their mind around the fact that a lib [R] president with congressional support is worse than a Marxist [D] president who congress fights. The real battle the next 4 years will be for Senate and the House to keep whichever Socialist in Chief, in check.

There is always the chance 0bamao will be impeached and removed, there is always the chance Willard will not be the nominee (for whatever reason). The GOP-e is trying to change the fundamental, core tenets of the Republican party. They already have to a large extent. They are counting on you to "evolve". WhyTF does this "evolve" chit always follow the path of liberalism? Good question right? The media would have you believe this. When was the last time this media/politician-described progress involved a movement towards conservative/constitutional principals? That's where the real battle lies, and that is why a liberal like Willard was foisted on the [R] ticket. Will you "evolve" like your GOP-e masters expect? Do you TRULY think the message received by voting for Mitt is ABO? Hahaha! The message received by voting Mitt is "I am evolving just like Mitt and the GOP-e". Even the so-called "GOP Young Guns" tried to prop up that loser Lugar. Sickening. Follow your conscience, follow your morals, follow your spirituality: vote and fight for Conservatives.

“....I strongly believe Obama and all of his enablers are a real and dangerous threat for the USA which overrides my angst about Mitt...”

I also strongly believe Obama is a dangerous threat; every Romney opposer knows that. However, I (and other like me) realize that Romney is just as big a threat...in different & similiar ways.

Actually, it is totally irelevant who Romney picks...he will still be Romney...a VP pick is JUST for show.

In what ways is Romney more dangerous than Obama? I don’t think Romney would be promoting or bowing down to Islam but admittedly he could be soft on Islam to the point of sheltering against any opposition. I also believe that Romney does not have and has not expressed opinions that our Constitution needs some changes even though I really want the candidate for POTUSA to openly say the Constitution is the only basis for all actions/positions of government. I also believe that the VP choice is very important especially as to any possible reason for succession. A VP is like a pendant around the neck of the POTUSA and that is why for Romney, in my opinion, someone with a Tea Party attitude should be Romney’s VP.

“Anyone going tribal on a conservative is obviously NOT a conservative. Kinda like what you’re doing, right here.”
________________________________________________________

I'm a conservative, but my choice did not win the primary. Whatever Romney is, he DOES NOT HATE THE COUNTRY AS FOUNDED, AND HAS AS HIS MISSION THE GOAL TO DESTROY IT! Sorry, but when you extreme anti-Romney types try and make the lame ass argument that Romney and Obama are the same, it makes you look like DUmmies.

The fact that you are taking an action that will aid Obama in his reelection bid is unconscionable! Where have you been the past 3 1/2 years? Obama’s attacked our allies, he's embraced our enemies, he's attacked religion, he's actively destroying our economy, he killed the space program, he's closed nine border patrol offices, he pushed for the successful repeal of DOMA, he gutted the work requirement for Welfare Reform, he lied about the cost and every other provision in ObamaCare; yet despite all of this, you're going to do a write-in (a supremely idiotic move) and help Obama capture a second term. And you can sit here and smugly lecture the rest of us who've decided to be proactive in removing the Marxist from office, as “going tribal on conservatives”? Are you F-ing serious?!?!

The way I see it, folks like you are not only selfish, but you're delusional. You've seen what this American-Hating Marxist has done to the country, but you just can't bring yourself to vote for Romney. No Sir, you simply can't allow a dangerous guy like Romney to win the presidency. Sick, delusional, and just plain sad!

Hey, if you want me zotted, just report me to JimRob or another moderator. It's actually quite simple.

The last thing he wants is for you or other people of reason to be zotted. Whom else will he act pompous in front of then?

You must understand something: For these anti-Romney types to justify their decision to not actively participate in trying to remove the America-hating Marxist, currently occupying the Oval Office, they have to make the bogus assertion that "Obama and Romney are the exact same thing!"

These anti-Romney types desperately want people to believe that Romney and Obama are the exact same thing. As bad as Romney might be in some areas, his life and career don't even put him on the same galaxy as Obama. These folks want us to believe that Romney would: gut the military, destroy our borders, destroy our economy, embrace our sworn enemies (while dissing our greatest allies), increase the welfare rolls, harbor class warfare, destroy the private sector...yada, yada! Sorry, but Americans have witnessed Obama doing these very things. To say that Romney would do these things is simply not based in reality.

Anybody who is not actively trying to remove the Marxist from office is part of the problem. In their holier than thou quest at absolute purity, these extreme anti-Romney folks will allow a known Marxist another four years to finish his destruction of our nation. There is nothing laudable or sane in this position.
