I think there are a lot of people who weren't sure whether to vote for Romney, or either leave it blank of vote or vote third party. Apparently Romney wants to make it easy for. On the one issue there might have been justification to vote for him on, he has come out and said firmly stands with Obama on. He can't even lie to us. After the 2010 election, he basically told those voters he's against them.

Clearly he is Dukakis III. (Dukakis II being Kerry) Except, Dukakis probably wasn't as socialist as Romney.

Not sure anymore that is true. If Obama wins, there is still resistance. If Romney wins, there is no resistance.

He shouldn’t be proud of that albatross. He destroyed the best health care in the world with one hand shake with Kennedy.

Bingo. In fact, what Romney did may be wrong philosophically, but it is still constitutional. If the yahoos in Massachusetts want this - all well and good, and they apparently do. Romney has been very clear that the Federal Government has no right under the constitution to enact Obamacare - and THAT is the important issue here.

sometimes I wonder if the people who post this are just too stupid to understand the enormity of the threat posed by an Obama victory in November, or are active trolls, working for the Democrats.

If you really believe what Obama has done is “small potatoes,” then he really isn’t that bad. I disagree with you. Slaverycare is not small potatoes, it’s a huge issue. I knew Romney disagreed with conservatives on all the other issues. But this was the issue that all the people against Obama could agree on. This drove the 2010 election. And Romney is embracing it. Game 0ver. Unless he changes his mind fast, there is no reason to vote for him. I don’t know if it was possible for them to avert slaverycare, but if there was a chance, it might be worth voting for him. But he’s full force behind. Screw him. I’m not a traitor to my country.

As a Gov of a liberal state Mitt gave his constituents what they wanted.
Obama has fought the majority tooth and nail.

I’ll take my chances.

So many people have given up their principles so they picked Romney for the rest of us. How they can defend him is beyond reasonable. Now, it's Romney's Rino party.
I am doing a write in and voting straight conservative the rest of the ballot. We are losing our country right before our eyes. Everything traditional is looked upon as being as a prejudice or mostly an extreme view. Romney just wants to win and Never should have been the leader of the Republican Party.

This “pride” rhetoric may be a preemptive step to avoid being on the defensive when Obama equates the two commie-care systems. Still annoying to hear.

Duh, Dummy”care” is now Romney/Obama”care.”

Duh, timed to perfection Romney. That is, if Romney wants to be DUMPED by a first Ballot Abstain vote.

VERY McCain, Romney, VERY McCain. The RINO Elite really knew what they were doing when they endorsed your sorry self.

BTW folks, might as well start preparing for our take over of the RINO Party by 2014, because clueless Romney is going to ram down our throats what we cannot financially afford.

When the Supreme Court of Massachuesetts question consitutionality of restricting marriage to opposite-sex couple (ye gad, we have gone berserk!) the court DID NOT mandate that marriage licenses be granted to same-sex partners.

ROMNEY did that by Executive Order.

Hmmm....didn’t Øbøzø do something similar be Executive Order—like repeal DADT?

“Bingo. In fact, what Romney did may be wrong philosophically, but it is still constitutional. “


BS! RomneyCare, like ObamaCare, was an unprecedented theft of the freedom of the citizens of Mass! There is no basis for RomneyCare within the constitution of MA, a document written by John Adams. It is as statist and fraudulent in MA as it is for the entire country.

You sir, have no sense of perspective.

Purists like you help put this current idiot in the White House.

We had our chance in the primaries but we couldn’t get anyone to beat Romney. Now it is either him or another four more years of a Racist Marxist Muslim in the White House.

Romney picked a Simon pure Conservative to run as VEEP on his ticket. WE will have FAR more influence with Romney than with the alternative should Romney be elected.

I am more than willing to get half of the pie instead of none of it. I can fight for other half later.

Wow, Zulu. Please answer me this: You are claiming state Romneycare is Constitutional and federal Romneycare is unconstitutional. Because Romney said so. But the Supreme Court ruled that federal Romneycare IS CONSTITUTIONAL . Once again: The Supreme Court ruled federal Romneycare is Constitutional. Q.E.D. FEDERAL ROMNEYCARE IS CONSTITUTIONAL!



Please explain your theory of the Constitution that Romney can decide what is Constitutional, but the Supreme Court can't?! That is a preposterous argument. The Constitution doesn't give presidential candidates more authority to decide what's Constitutional than the Supreme Court. And you know that.



So when you are voting, you are not voting between what candidates think is Constitutional. You are voting whether they think Romneycare is a good idea. And they both think it's a good idea. And don't try to sell me that something Romney is proud of, he wouldn't be okay making national. Expand the pride. The fact is, he's have to be dead set against it to combat it on the federal level.



The federal/state argument is a sham. It's either a good idea or it isn't. Vote on that.

So where did Mittens get the constitutional authority (in MA’s constitution) to impose RomneyCare? Can you quote it for me?

See my response to Carraway.

Maybe YOU can look yourself in the mirror if that clown Obama gets re-elected, but I can’t. I care too much for my children and grandchildren to pull off an Uberpurist Götterdämmerung in November to assuage a self-righteous sense of philosophical purity.

When the wolf is at the door, any rational alternative is acceptable.

Yes your opinion. But you can’t name a single piece of legislation that Romney would do worse. The fact that he can’t even reject the one piece of legislation that people are angry about tells you a lot. At least the Bushes pretended.

The Supreme’s ruling essentially means that we no longer have any constitutionally protected rights anymore. We are a Democracy now, where anything can be pushed through on the basis of the commerce clause or the power of the government to levy taxes. Apparently, buying a product is now an acceptable tax. Ding Dong, we’re screwed!

Maybe YOU can look yourself in the mirror if that clown Romney gets elected and nothing actually changes, but I can’t. I care too much about how to spend my time than in taking part in an activity that will render the same, futile result. It is a tale, full of sound and fury, signifying absolutely nothing, and you assuage your own self-righteous sense of philosophical purity by pretending something will come of it.

Clue time. Neither party is serious about the deficit or even has a legitimate plan to deal with it. The Republicans are now running on a platform of maintaining the ponzi-scheme known as social security and medicare, and have totally embraced the “good parts” of ObamaCare that have led to financial collapse of the healthcare system in MA to such a degree they now impose controls over pricing. They are proposing “fixes” that are gimmicky, full of “conservative” promises but don’t even accomplish what they claim, and then they expect your worship and adoration.

Am I arguing with a leftist Democrat here?

If the left-leaning idiots on the SCOTUS decide the sky is really green instead of blue, do you believe them? At this point we ALL should know that Jorge El Segundo has “Warren Courted” us with that idiot Roberts.

Obamacare is not Constitutional. Nowhere in the Federal Constitution is the Federal Government given the power to establish a health plan - NOWHERE.

But the Tenth Amendment CLEARLY states that whatever powers are not specifically delegated to the Federal Government are retained by the people and the states.

BS! The Democratic Socialists of America demanded it (one of its members designed RomneyCare. He went on to design ObamaCare), and Romney lied about it, made false promises about it, and shoved it on the gullible morons of his state based on nothing within the MA constitution itself. And today he still lies about it despite its utter failure. Today, the gullible morons of MA now consist of the entire nation, because we’re DEMANDING Marxism from both parties. Or, at least, that’s what they’ll tell us when they’re robbing us.

Obamacare is NOT, countrywide.

Based on what is it unconstitutional? Have you read in the Constitution about the Supreme Court? They said it was Constitutional. Where in the Constitution does it say you have the right to overrule them about what's Constitutional. Can you post your citation? Please, it would help.

If you can claim that federal Romneycare is unconstitutional, then I can claim state Romneycare is unconstitutional. Your whole argument is built on sham. Romney has no standing of backing up is claims. It's just a bunch of malarkey.

One more reminder. Obamacare/federal romneycare IS Constitutional!!!! The Supreme Court said so. And can dispute that they are the body the Constitution itself gets to decide that?? Romney's Constitutional analysis is sham.

That would be plain idiotic. It’s likely part of a strategy that will help keep Romney on the offensive instead of being on the defensive regarding RomneyCare.
