You baby killer need to check yourself. Romney is not a conservative. You are so blinded by his looks that you can’t even see it.

He therefore has my vote, too.

I have NEVER seen a worst candidate in my life on the Republican side. This is sick and the Romney lovers are out of control. This is so insane. It is fine to vote for the guy but to put him on some sick pedestal is so psychotic. I don't get the love of this guy from Romney lovers. I will vote for him, but I be damned if I am going to put him up for Sainthood that some here want me to do. It is not going to happen.

Romney is trying really hard to lose this election.

Ditto. Mark Levin talking about this now (Romney not taking a hard line against Obama).

I can understand folks wanting to get behind Romney since Obama is so undeniably bad. What bothers me is when folks address Romney weaknesses, and the idiots try to shout them down by calling them names like Obama lover, or turncoat, or a useful idiot.

No, the useful idiot is the one that tries to bludgeon Conservatives so they will either shut up or vote for things we have railed against for decades.

Sorry, I’m against things on their own merits, and if my side does them I’m just as opposed as when Democrats do them.

Frankly, the guy you’re addressing here has been non-stop attacking true Conservatives for weeks now. The only thing he is doing by taking this tone, is destroying his own credibility. Not that big a deal, since he never had any here anyway.

Mitt and Massachusetts were really made for each other:

“...On health care, Romney said Sunday he wants to keep parts of the health care overhaul spearheaded by President Obama. Though Romney vows to repeal the law, he said: “I'm not getting rid of all of health care reform.”

Romney said: “There are a number of things that I like” in the law. The Republican presidential nominee said he wants to make sure people with pre-existing conditions can still have guaranteed coverage. And he said he wants to make sure young people can stay on their parents’ plan “up to whatever age they might like” — currently, that age is 26.”

I agree with everything you said. You are spot on. I have never seen anything like this before. People supposedly hated Romney from 2006 until his coronation and then suddenly he became God's gift. No he is still the same slime ball that he was from the beginning. It just seems that Free Republic has some people that are liberal and now they are free to express themselves without getting into trouble. It is absolutely tragic what these folks are doing. Have a great day!

I've concluded they are no different in the worship of their political savior than Ron Paul's Mob Zombies are to their political messiah.

This is definitely the impression the Romney people have left:

It was the same with the Bushbots on FR. The pretzels they would contort themselves into defending his liberal policies with a by product of calling conservative critics names.

These same people will defend Romneys liberal policies the same way. When he announces shamnesty, they will be out in droves listing how we are 'falling for the MSM lies....blah blah..,' while ignoring what he actually said.

When you get right down to to it, when they calls us traitors or DUTrolls, they are implying JimR is one too.

Sorry, but switching to pure community rating is the single biggest element of ObamaCare -- and what Romney has said he supports. Obama's scheme to avoid price hikes was to force everybody to buy insurance -- the individual and employer mandates. What's Romney's scheme?

We're slicing the baloney awfully thin.

Not only is Romney not a conservative, but it's increasingly unclear to me whether he's any better than Obama. At least with Obama, Congressional Republicans have something of a backbone. Do you really think Boehner and McConnell will stand up to Romney?>>>>>>>>>>AMEN,AMEN and AMEN. Tell me this Romneybots. Let's look at the debt ceiling. If the Republicans keep the house and take,or even nearly take, the Senate which scenario is most likely? The Republicans block Obama from raising the debt ceiling or the Republicans block Romney from raising the debt ceiling? And don't tell me Romney won't try, we are talking reality, not fantasy. I DONT CARE if Obama beats Romney. Romney is useless to conservatives. Romney can more damage than Obama, who we can fight at every turn. At least then we have a chance of getting a CONSERVATIVE running for the Republicans in '16 rather than a re-elect RINO Romney campaign. The Republicans did this to themselves. I will vote for every conservative on the ballot. I will NOT vote for any liberals, including the guy the Republican Party made the huge mistake of nominating.

Meh.

Romney is a greasy politician with a liberal record who is running as a conservative against a Marxist.

His appearance at CGI doesn't change my opinion of him nor his opponent.

With Obama the Marxist as president, there's a zero percent chance that we will get conservatism.. With Mitt, the greasy politician with a liberal record and a conservative platform, there's a greater than zero percent chance that we will get conservatism.

I do care and hope that Mitt beats Obama the Zero.

Still. Will I hold my nose and “fill in the arrow” to get him elected and Obozo booted? I, once again, have been given no choice. *sigh*

I don’t think Mittens is a Manchurian candidate to the extend Obama is.....that’s for sure.

There are 2 issues. Political belief and criminality. Obama is wrong on both counts. Romney OK on one (criminality), possibly might be OK another. Obama is not only a hardcore leftist, he is a criminal. He ignores Congress at will and oversteps his prescribed lawful duties frequently. He is an exceptional danger to America because he is both a criminal willing to ignore the Constitution in novel ways and an extreme leftist.

I see little difference between the two. Romney will do virtually the same thing as Obama in terms of record, he’ll just have the full support of the GOP who will make excuses for him, unlike Obama has now.

Plus, all the criminality you cite Obama as having done - neither Romney nor the GOP is going to demand or exact justice for the violations of the rule of law committed by this regime. I fully expect they are simply going to consider what Obama did as PRECEDENT for what Romney and the Ruling Class can now do for themselves, if by some incredible miracle, enough Americans overcome the largest fraud ever perpetrated during an election to allow Romney to take an oath of office in January.

A liberal Democrat versus a Marxist - how far Left America has fallen is just the symptom of the cultural and spiritual evil this nation has fallen into.

Nonsense! Clinton has plenty of pull with RINO wing of the Republican party! Oh, you mean with average voters.

I think the more appropriate question is: Does it matter if this man wins?

Which is why our best hope this fall is to invest our time, resources and support into conservative candidate downticket.

It is important in 2012 to remember 9/11 because our younger generations are the most in danger of forgetting what really happened- or worse, our younger generations are susceptible to getting a politically correct view of 9/11. Many on the Left have tried to turn 9/11 into a “day of national service” or a celebration of tolerance, instead of remembering that radical jihad attacked this nation because of our western values.

Watch this moving tribute to the heroes of 9/11 composed by a man who lived through it:

http://www.frugalsites.net/911/attack/

(music by Enya)

Every American should watch this amazing video.

Also from the page, view the 'Pentagon Tribute Page', 'Anatomy Of The Attack' and 'Explanation Of Page'. Don't miss the heartbreaking 'That Day', In Author's Own Words.

It is the most viewed video of all, and is now in the Smithsonian.
