“I’m at a loss. We have the most incompetent and destructive president in history. He is destroying the country piecemeal. ANYONE should be able to beat him, but he may win in a bigger landslide than he did against McCain. What is happening is a direct result of the media”

All of this we warned would happen if Romney were nominated. What a waste.

Romney’s got to be on the attack, not the defensive. He needs to produce strong, hard-hitting, anti-Obama ads. When the media is offended or threatened by anti-Obama ads, they’ll cover them and try to debunk them. That just ends up giving the ads free airtime, and taking time away that they would otherwise spend attacking Romney directly. Just look at the swift boat ads. Everyone in the country heard about them through the media and the media had less time to point out flaws about Bush when they were busy trying to “debunk” the ads.

“If the WH is not turned over this year, the House and Senate are meaningless. He will do everything by Executive Order and the Congress will be unable to stop him.”

Pure nonsense. First thing up with Republican house + senate - pass a budget cutting most of the trash he’s put in the last 4 years and cleaning house.

That first budget is going to be horrifying.

If you have a house and senate with the stones to do their job, Obama can be rendered pretty much powerless or even removed by other means.

Unless we get 2/3 of the Senate (and how likely is *that*?),Osama Obama will have more flexibility to issue Executive Orders.With them,he can easily finish off in his second term the nation that he's brought to its knees in his first.

Nor are our ballots needed or appreciated by the Republican party. We rode in the back of the bus last time - this time, no.

Once is a mistake, twice is a habit. Time to stop nominating RINOs!

the real fault lies with Romney. He is campaigning like McCain and Dole, when he has to be campaigning like Reagan.

Exactly! If the media can control a Romney campaign then they will be able to control a Romney Presidency.

Charles Gasparino is no flack and you should know that. He has heard something that matters and reported it, hoping to light a fire in someone’s pants who needs to show leadership and not a Miss Manners approach to war.

Sheesh.

Nope. Gridlock is best case scenario. Can’t believe republicans would give up when Romney loses - but I guess that’s par for the course. There is lots that can be done to hamstring Obama, but only if the Senate is won.

Scarce dollars should have been poured into the Senate races from day one and if - only if - there was money left over - put into the Romney campaign.

I'm at a loss. We have the most incompetent and destructive president in history. He is destroying the country piecemeal. ANYONE should be able to beat him, but he may win in a bigger landslide than he did against McCain. What is happening is a direct result of the media.

You should only be "at a loss" if you are buying into the media narrative, which is false. They will be repudiated in November.

Don't let them get to you. They are the enemy, Fox News included. Once you realize that, then their transparent propaganda should have no negative effect on you. All it should do is motivate you even more to spread the truth to as many of the deceived masses as you can. Don't be insular! Educate and inform voters and then get those you have awakened to go out and vote, and so on.

At this point in our history, if patriotic Americans are all as angry, passionate, and motivated as we appear to be, then 0bama has NO chance in November.

GO TEA PARTY!

Everyone is hanging their hats on the debate.

The debate isn’t going to make much difference. The moderator will throw softballs to Obama, and try to antagonize Romney. Everyone will see what they want to see, and no one will change their mind.

Romney can’t go on the attack in the debate. He won’t get the opening, and if he creates one, it will backfire on him. You can’t diss Obama and get away with it.

The only way Romney wins is if he pins the economy on Obama and offers a viable alternative, with enough specifics that it looks realistic.

Why don’t you tell me. After all sounds like you have it all figured out.

I've read the Constitution a few times and impeachment is the only way of removing a President via another branch of government. While a simple majority of the House is needed to impeach, 2/3 of the Senate (67 votes) would be needed to impeach a President. Assuming a party-line vote, we'd need to win a lot of Senate seats to get there. If we held all Republican seats and picked up every seat even remotely competitive, that would only get us to 60 seats. We'd have to start winning in places like Delaware, New Jersey, California and Rhode Island to get even close to 67 and I honestly don't know what candidates if any we have running in those states. I looked up the New York US Senate race (another possibility) and apparently our candidate is only down 43 points as of the last poll.

And when Romney loses - you’ll blame Ryan and the conservatives just like McCain did Palin.

Look, I wish I could be like you and promise rainbows and ponies but I have to be honest. Romney never had a chance. Romney’s only hope was that all the swings went to him. That wasn’t ever going to happen.

Show me a poll, where this wasn’t the case, and Romney had a significant margin vs Obama? There aren’t any because he’s never had one at any point.

Everyone is hanging their hats on the debate.

And they hung their hats on after the convention. Before that it was during the convention. Before that it was just before the convention. Before that it was after the VP pick...etc.

Seems like the bar keeps moving but still under 50%.

Next it will be after the second debate, then sometime in late october then the last weekend before the election the election night we'll be hearing "yes, but such and such country has not been counted yet. Just wait and see Romney will catch up."

I say FIGHT NOW - Yesterday already. But no... everything is just fine. "Obama's losing in a landslide no need to worry."

I’ll say this. Romney sure has a lot of people associated with him who run to the media to tell anonymous stories that reflect negatively on him. How come we never hear anything out of the Obama camp? What is it with Republicans who love to run out to the press and sh*t on other Republicans?

“It will ensure Romney gets his Supreme Court nominations through the Senate.”

The Romney record for judicial appointments as governor:

Of 36 nominations for judges or magistrates, 14 were registered Democrats, 9 were registered Republicans, and 23 were unenrolled voters who either gave money to Democrat politicians or voted in the Democrat primaries. Two nominees were gay rights lawyers who supported same sex rights.

Want to guess who a Romney nominee might be to replace a retiring Justice Scalia? Do you believe Romney will appoint a strong conservative to replace Ginsberg, Breyer, or Kennedy?

What is happening is a direct result of the media.

Granted, if the media presented information objectively rather than openly propagandizing for the Obama campaign, Obama would probably be polling 20 points behind right now. But it doesn't help that the GOP establishment anointed a bland, limp, nervous-sounding stiff as our candidate. Instead of destroying Gingrich, they should have embraced him as the only candidate capable of standing up both to Obama and the media.

The knee pad media would never report any negative info from the Obama camp.

There is some negative info allegedly leaking from the Obama camp, but you have to decide whether it is believable.

That’s ridiculous. “despises”? That sounds just like the kind of hyperbole that the Dems and the MSM use. If you despise him, don’t vote for him; you’ll get what you must want, 4 more years of Obama.

I know a lot of people don’t want to hear this, but the conservative Republican bench was horrible this year. Every candidate had deep flaws, and the knee pad media would have destroyed them.

I’m no fan of Romney, but he was frankly the only one without insurmountable baggage. Hopefully, the conservatives can start developing a candidate that can pick up after Romney. Ryan seems like a good candidate.

FReepers also joined Politico when they were trashing our candidates during the Primary Race. And these same dipshits are bitching that we're “stuck with Romney!”

Rush is right on this. These polls, and other data showing Obama “miles ahead of Romney” do not match reality. But still, FReepers eagerly lap it up. And you guys have the nerve to call Romney weak?

What a bunch of Pantie-waists.

Well then, looks like Romney needs to work on his communication skills. The media's not going to help him. Not now. He's already the nominee - their work is done now.

Time for Romney to stop saying Obama's a "good man" and start campaigning against him before he loses all of his big donors.

“Were they planning to spend that billion dollars this election cycle or the next cycle? Or are they spending it all on high-priced consultants?

And what exactly is Karl Rove’s salary at Crossroads, Crossroads, GPS, etc? $1 million? $10 million? $50 million?”

I got an email from the Romney campaign tonite saying they have been using a lot of their money on organizing the ground game which is where they feel the battle will truly be fought out. So that is where a lot of the money is going.

As to Karl Rove, so many like to slam the guy of late, although you all loved him when Bush was running. Rove has done yoeman’s duty collecting money for his super pac; he has been the main force behind it, and lots of the money he is gathering is going for Senate and House campaigns all over the U.S. So I wouldn’t be too quick to knock him day and night.

Hey Rita, if you didn't like the GOP Primary field, why didn't you get your lazy butt up and run for office. I mean, you apparently must have all the answers and fine qualities that a “good” candidate should have...right?

My guess is, you were one of the FReepers joining Politico and other Left-leaning rags in trashing our GOP candidates. Now you have the nerve to bit*h about Romney. Like I said, if you don't like the field, get off your lazy a$$ and run for President.
