As a social conservative I feel your pain. If he were pro choice I cold not back him but he is pro life. I need the economy to get better and Romney can get the job done. If it was just about economics he would be my first choice. He has the best shot a saving the economy.
As a social conservative
A liberal mittbot doing what The KNOWN LIAR does! Con job!
I like your tagline, BUT Mr. RomneyCARE
may well allow marriage between chickens and children.
In fact, Mr. RomneyCARE may FORCE THE CLERKS
to allow it. He did before against the
Mass. Constitution, Judge. Comment on that?
"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."

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."

"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.

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]."

And you have NO proof of that - as he raised the taxes/fees in MA by 300% and MA was the 47 out of 50 in employment under his admin.

Where has Romney been for life? All talk. His history shows he is a pro-abort. You’re going to trust Romney on his word? No way can Mitt save the economy without God’s help. Pray for Romney to find God, the true God.
Judge, I wish I could believe that you feel our pain. Regardless, you are making Romney’s mistake of trying to limit the election to a contest about the economy. The problem’s with this are manifold. First, the situation with the economy is and will be ambiguous (it’s not all bad); and many will be at least partially swayed by the argument that not O but Bush and or structural factors are to blame for the economy. Second, many will not see Mitt as the clear cut panacea for the economy. But most importantly, by limiting the scope of the election to the economy, you put Obama on a playing field which discounts O’s radical leftism. In a wider sense, this election is about the out of control govt (not the less profound short-term economy), and wider still it is about whether as a nation we return to some semblance of conservative principles, or disappear into a leftist abyss.
But specific issues also are going to trump the economy with many voters. Romney needs to emphasize multiple issues to appeal to different voters. And in fact the gay militancy issue provides the greatest opportunity to make inroads with left of center independents, and even blacks and Dems. Also, a poll showed only 26% of Repubs support gay marriage, and a huge fraction are -intensely- opposed. It is not good enough for Romney to give whispered lip service to the notion that he supports traditional marriage; that was O’s position until just a few months ago, and Romney’s position then could just as easily “evolve.” Romney is making a huge mistake by seeming to get on the wrong side of this issue with conservatives and independents.
Judge, I would not try to downplay the gay issue as a way to convince conservatives to support Romney. Instead, you could say “we’re stuck with what we have,” and O is O, and from the start of 2013 we could plan to primary Romney in ‘16. I like Rand Paul, but whoever. I think with the Tea Party we may unexpectedly be able to mount an effective primary challenge.
If Romney wins, don’t expect 2016 to be a cakewalk for re-nomination. This is the more effective argument you can make now to try to get conservatives on board in supporting Romney.
What is it again that Romney's going to do to revive the economy???
And your use of the liberal fake euphemism "pro-choice" speaks pretty loudly about your sympathies.
