Posted on 09/26/2012 12:18:17 PM PDT by kingattax
I support Mitt Romney for President and Paul Ryan for Vice President. For most of my life, I have been a Democrat, and I very publicly voted (C-Span, live radio, The New York Times) for Obama-Biden in 2008.
As I studied Obamas performance as President, I could no longer support him.
That was not ideal for the longevity of our eight year old, award-winning drive time radio show "Caplis and Silverman" which ended in June. Our show was somewhat premised as a left vs. right dialogue. So be it. I have another career.
I am a small business owner (Silverman and Olivas, P.C.), and a Denver trial lawyer who is a proud member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. My social policies are libertarian. I am a fourth generation Denver Jew who graduated from Denver George Washington H.S., Colorado College and then CU Law School.
Some of my fellow members of the above groups may be displeased with my endorsement, but so be that, too. This is not a close choice if you are actually paying attention.
An objective person should be enormously disappointed in President Obama and his administration. The economy remains bad. The debt bomb keeps growing. Iran is on the verge of having nukes. The power of the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamism is expanding rapidly.
Our Justice Department is full of politics and political correctness. Fast and Furious is a disgrace. Attorney General Eric Holder needs to go.

Funny, the media isn't too anxious to find Democrats who are voting for Romney this time....if there were a picture of the Obama and the media, it would be this:
Are Reagan Democrats coming home to roost?
I predict Kirsten Powers will “convert” some day too.
She’s smart. Too smart to be a Democrat.
I sure hope more democrats are believing this, pull the lever, or stay home.
Silverman's Jewishness is what finally convinced him that Soetoro is bad for America. He's cool with destroying millions of babies. He draws the line at the destruction of Israel.
Good job, Craig. Addiction to the 'Rats is tough to break, but you seem on the road to recovery!
Hopefully, there will be many more like you, especially in the "swing states."
Oh Lordy I hope the smaller dog is a Pug mix and not a Chihuahua mix.
Shes smart. Too smart to be a Democrat.
You may have something there. She has a hard time suppressing the truth in her. She's also too cute to be a Demonrat.
Yes to JAIL...
Your picture is far to subtle. What are you really saying?
“An objective person should be enormously disappointed in President Obama and his administration.”
Yeh, except you were stupid enough to vote for him in the first place.
Romney cannot even get out of bed in the morning without the MSM accusing him of something else. They’ve chosen sides and are actively campaigning for the One.
Are they really stupid enough to think that most Americans these days haven’t had their fill of the biased, partisan lying that constantly permeates literally all of their political “reporting”?
IMO, the more free campaigning the media provides the more America is going to turn against them and the One.
Whadya mean? He’s second in line, you just cant tell it.
Yes to JAIL...
And so does his boss.
This is something that gives me some confidence going forward. I don’t know anyone who voted against O last time, who has said “you know, I was wrong about the guy, he is doing a pretty good job... I think I’m voting for Obama this time”.
But you do run into people who tell you they voted for O last time, but not this time. Some say they will vote Romney, some say they’ll sit it out.
But there are a small number of Dems who are crossing our way, and essentially no Repubs crossing the other direction this time. In a fifty-fifty country, it only takes a few, and Obama is bleeding Dems in every category.
Shes smart. Too smart to be a Democrat.
And she's too pretty to be a dim, too.
Nothing wrong with that, as long as he's voting against Zero. He won't be the only Jewish Obama voter in 2008 who will be abandoning the erstwhile "Messiah" this year. Look for Zero's percentage of the Jewish vote to be reduced by somewhere about 15 points nationwide, which could provide Romney his margin of victory in Florida. Jeopardizing the future of Israel by pandering to her sworn enemies might turn out to be a critical factor in sinking his re-election bid.
I would agree that in general, Republican women are more physically attractive than 'Rat women. But there are some exceptions to every rule.
Now why would anyone be so interested in Kirsten Powers converting? I don't see her as a major political figure.
Have the Obamacare pharmacies run low on stupid pills? Told them this would happen.
Plus there are some Pubbies who sat out 2008, having been put off by McCain's campaign, and who now realize they just can't afford another four years of this disaster. In other words, greater Republican turnout!
Problem with the converts is they’re usually not “all in.” Like this guy and I’m sure Kirsten would be, they remain liberals on social issues like abortion, but might become fiscal or foreign policy conservatives. Or you’ll have pro-lifers who like big-government socialism going one way or the other. The reason they can switch at all is because they’ve never been quite all-in with either party.
There’s plenty wrong with that. Silverman is fine with genocide unless it involves the extermination of Israel. If Soetoro hadn’t thrown Israel under the bus, Silverman would vote for him, forget about what he’s done to the United States. That schmuck shyster is one principled guy.
It has always taken a coalation of various types of voters to win national elections, and the differences between the various pro-Romney factions have to be overlooked for now to lift our candidate to victory. After that happens, we can have discussions focusing on our differences, and I'm sure they'll become hot and heavy. But this is not the time.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
What people have to remember around here especially is that conservatism always takes hold in one or two issues, and it is our job as conservatives to point out and educate new conservative leaning people about becoming full throttle.
If you bemoan them on everything else, then the conservative movement shrinks instead of grows.

“Problem with the converts is theyre usually not all in.

That’s all right by me. Just get them to vote Pub for the first time, and then work on them on the other issues. You get nowhere by keeping them out for purist reasons at this point. Get them in the Party and then step by step get them prepped on the other issues until one day, voila, they are true converts. It happens all the time.
Rush Limbaugh has the right attitude towards those that join the Pub Party; he welcomes them with open arms and is delighted that the light bulb went on in the first place so that they took a mini step towards the Pubs, and then a giant step by voting for them. We need all the converts we can get.
Sometimes it takes something VERY personal for a person to overcome what your mother, father, friends, Reform Rabbi, schoolteachers, professors, and the media teach you.
I’m not going to attack the guy for coming to our side.
I want his vote. . .he is ‘getting it’; and will bet; ‘more light to come’. Just glad, he is choosing Mitt versus; the Marxist degradation - and threat - passing for US President.
Looks just like my chihuahua. I “affectionately” call him a nurse fish because he grooms our youngest basset constantly, teeth, ears, everything.
Amazing how they are ok with the destruction of the truly innocent, but cringe at the possibility of having to suffer as an adult.
And, how can any true “libertarian” vote for democrats.
(BTW and’whatever’; this man has impressive credentials - and you call him a ‘smuck shyster’?). Do think, perceptions like this; do not help Jews move to the higher ground that we believe we hold to, as Conservatives.
