Bit strong of a statement.

More like, strongly opposed to Obama and Romney is potentially a less fetid alternative.

Our best case scenario is to end up with Obama back in the whitehouse and republicans in control of both the senate and the house and that is the outcome I am hoping for. Obama is nothing without Harry Reid and Nanci Pelosi to ram his agenda down America’s throat. Furthermore, if we control the house and senate, we can remove Obama from office the way it really ought to be done, via impeachment.

A dream. And a dangerous one, at that.

More like a fantasy. That's like some around here saying we'll go ahead and elect Romney and then we can control him after he is in office. Uh huh......

so that primary votes don’t get so split

On candidates that were not in it to win but help Mitt to win. They had no qualifications but that didn't stop voters to overlook the ONE that did! And Santorium who is a known 'take it for the team/GOP' was on assignment as guard to interfere to make sure NEWT didn't win. RS attack ads and Mitt's non stop LYING attack ads against a PATRIOT assured him of that. After all, the plan was for Mitt to get the nomination - mitt 'got and took' - HE WON NOTHING!

Voters refused to $upport or vote for Patriot Newt who is a historian first before a politician. His love of America made him study her his whole life. The Constitution runs through his veins. American lost BIG TIME because of immature, naive voters - unaware of tactics being played out by the GOP/Mitt. It was entertainment for some voters while the GOP worked on their plan for YEARS.

The moment they made Romney 'their favorite son' - and their plan was in the works years ago.

I don't read what they write but watch what they do and so far they abandon their own platform. They are following a LIBERAL script with all it's filth.

The problem with your fantasy (Obama re-elected, GOP Congress) is that, under those circumstances, the economy will not rebound.

You are hoping for gridlock -- which will submit the economy to another four years of uncertainty and stagnation, extending the suffering and making eventual recovery even more difficult.

A GOP victory -- in both the Congress and in the Presidency -- will kick-start a recovery and insure action is taken to return the country to prosperity.

I wouldn't wish another four years of Obama in the White House on anybody -- much less the American people.

You're so right. I would be so much better off throwing a protracted hissy fit.

Oh, and my fear isn't logic. Though my ordered priorities are sound. Nice try.

Look again; reread the salient part of my post re mine and intending to keep it. This matters most.

Not tapping out my life story for you but so you understand where I come from. I endured years of building a business. It meant taking all manner of risks, financial and personal safety ventures; mtg my house twice; paid myself only when I could afford the luxury in lieu of compensating those in my employ, two of whom over time saw fit to steal thousands from me; accepted phone calls in the middle of the night, traveling hours for potentially life-sustaining service; barely tolerated and survived crushing state and federal regulatory harassment you could not even imagine; provided gratis products to those without resources and performed routine charitable services throughout my community. But in the end I persevered; it paid off after all.

And now I have people like you who would criticize and laugh at my choice to support someone who stands opposed to a tyrant who'd take away mine that I've worked so hard to attain.

My estimation of someone who'd tacitly allow this because of philosophical quibbles with a political party is proximate to any other complicit party in his totalitarian power grab.

Again, I've studied the numbers and the odd alliance of people in your position with the full-fledged, branded members of the Democrat party, cannot secure Obama The Oppressor's reelection.

That will be all.

He was impeached. That's the point, and it's a huge one. The Republican Revolution forced Clinton to the right. That's the point, and it's a huge one.

Perhaps Obama would be impeached; perhaps, as you say, Republicans would be too cowardly to proceed. Regardless, an Obama re-elected by a plurality (very likely the most that he could get) would be defensive and weak because it woud become obvious that his support was illusion.

But you are so afraid of a skinny fraud that you're willing to invest all aspects of Republican leadership and power in a politician with a rock-solid RECORD of advancing every single major liberal statist cause that you have, presumably, been voting Republican all these years to oppose. All because you're frightened.

Conservatives like you make me think of a line in "A Few Good Men."

You're such a coward. I can't believe they let you wear a uniform.

If Mitt embraces homosexual marriage, then so does the Republican Party:

September 3, 2008
A Platform for the Delegates, Not the Candidate

Shortly before he arrived in San Diego in 1996 to accept the Republican presidential nomination, Bob Dole, a plain-speaking man, confessed that he had not read his party’s platform and indeed had no intention of doing so.

You consider my posts here, which mostly hold exclusively to the discussion of records, strategy, and the good sense of voting for a plurality, as "attacks" on conservatives?

Lurkers and readers, Romney supporters are required to repeatedly declare, for example, that anyone who refuses to vote for Romney is irrational, crazy, a "nutter." When I and others like me reply by pointing out that the real irrationality, the real "nutter," is in conservatives who plan to vote for a liberal Democrat who is registered as a Republican, they come back and say "You're attacking conservatives because you're saying we're irrational and nutters!"

It is disingenuous and deceitful, exactly the way Romney is deceitful and disingenuous.

The plain truth is that virtually all of the things Romney ABOers accuse us of in attack posts can be turned right around with genuine accuracy, as THEY are the ones on the verge of voting for a liberal, not folks like me. Those same people, like TexbBirth, whine self-righteously that they're being "attacked."

It is TYPICAL of the behavior of Romney supportes we used to see here back in 2007 and '08. Emotional, self-pitying, and deceitful.

So you really do believe the RINO pipe dream being peddled that Romney can be controlled by conservatives if they only give up their principles, hold their noses real tight and vote for him just because he has an ‘R’ after his name! And yes, gridlock might just be the best that conservatives can hope for in this election.

Should it happen ... we will know more than simply the fix is in. The Chick-fil-A protest would be returned with a slap to all the Americans who turned out to say enough, should this happen. It would be suicide for the republicans to put this plank in their platform.

I didn't say that. Why do you claim that I did?

What I did say is that an Obama re-election, coupled to a GOP Congress, dooms the economy to another four years of stagnation and will make it more difficult to eventually revive.

And that a Romney presidency plus a GOP Congress would result in an immediate economic pulse and a quick recovery.

Do you deny this? And would you prefer the country undergo another four years of economic hardship in order to fulfill your fantasy?

Good Lord...

>>>>> Then man up and declare it for all to see...
“I, __________________, declare that I have decided that conservatism has failed and as such, I will vote for the Republican Mitt Romney, A man whose history I am aware of regarding his liberalism. It is with open eyes and no regrets that I will disavow everything I believe conservative ideals and the American Constitution ever stood for just to get Obama out of office.

Further, by doing so, I accept that I adopted the very things I formerly despised to get a liberal elected President and henceforth I have no legitimate right to ever be trustworthy again - since my newly adopted situational ethics allow me to bend like a twig in the prevailing political winds.

Signed, _____________________________” <<<<

Nice try Norma Lenhart... You didn’t answer my question (dodged it).

So I assume the answer is “YES, I, Norma Lenhart, do solemnly swear that I PREFER BARACK OBAMA TO MITT ROMNEY.

In addition, I understand that I’m voting for someone who is consistently EVIL over someone who is simply INCONSISTENT and occasionally liberal. In summary, I’m just stubborn.”

AGS, really. Come on. Ummm, well if you don’t vote AGAINST Obummer ...

There's no such thing as voting "against." It's pretend. It's talk. The ACTION and the REALITY is that any and every vote can ONLY be for something, whether it's for a candidate, for a proposition, or for nixing a proposition. The only way you can vote "against" something is to vote FOR something to replace it. And you are advocating replacing a liberal Democrat with another liberal Democrat.

Do you really think Romney is equivalently as ... anti-American as Obummer (or worse)??? Seriously?

Romney is 100% behind allowing declared, open homosexuality in the military, which really means he is 100% for punishing any service members who object to open homosexuality in their midst and all of the emotional romantic conflicts of interest that would ensue. Any enemy of the U.S. military would love to weaken our fighting forces from within by enabling homosexuality and integrated (men and women) fighting forces, as an all-male heterosexual force absolutely would have the advantage in combat. So you're damned right anyone with a lick of sense would perceive Romney as anti-American, especially since not ONE PERSON in Romney's lineage, for as far back as anyone can find it being in America, has ever served in the U.S. military. Romney's family has avoided military service, including his sons, for generations. That's plain WEIRD. I can't think of a single family I know of that's been here for more than two generations, without an uncle, a sibling, a son, a father, a grandpa, who served in some brach of hte U.S. military. But that is Romney and his clan and frankly, that smells anti-American to me.

Romney, in his 2008 CPAC speech, made it clear that he believes our planet is endangered by man-caused climate change, that a "carbon plan" is necessary, and that "any carbon plan has to be worldwide in scope -- let's have a worldwide solution, not an American one" -- those are his exact words from the speech. That means that Romney is all for surrendering American sovereignty with regard to her energy and food production and consumption, to global oversight by a coalition of other nations.

You're DAMNED RIGHT I really think Romney is as anti-American as Obama. You should too.
