I believe those of use that are sitting it out/write-in/3rd party are just the opposite....stockpiling for whomever ‘wins’ come November, ‘cuz it won’t matter which party continues along the path we’re currently set upon.
We’d be better off focusing on the local/House/Senate picks than President (which I still never understood the hoopla about, considering the E.College does the actual choosing).
There will be enough crow to eat for everyone I suspect; mine being IF/when they actually shrink/rid of a department in Fedzilla....
But to believe in Mitt’s rhetoric recently and neglect all his past is madness. Just because he doesn’t (currently) use sand in the Vaseline doesn’t mean I’m happy to grab my ankles.
Why so? Because we are lost if we do not persuade literally millions of our fellow countrymen to move to the right. And if we reject one who seems to be doing so--if we continually insult his integrity--what sort of a message do we send to those millions whom we need to convince to make the same move?
Because Romney has proven himself as something of a problem solver, there is real evidence--convincing proof--that he is a realist. Because Conservative, free market, limited government, personal responsibility premises have proven to offer the best hope for any people, why should one doubt that Gov. Romney's acceptance of those premises is now genuine?
People need to put anger over past disappointments into the perspective of the desperate need for America to retire Obama from office. This really is a very crucial election; and Romney makes a lot of sense right now. (See Romney/Ryan.)
Refusing to confront evil, and there by being a passive ally of it, is not a conservative stand.
I think it time for you die hards to admit your position has more to do with your sour grapes that your candidate did not win the GOP nomination then anything resembling principal.
“I believe those of use that are sitting it out/write-in/3rd party are just the opposite....stockpiling for whomever wins come November, cuz it wont matter which party continues along the path were currently set upon.”
Bingo. I’d add that since the turnover of the House to Republicans the president hasn’t been able to do a whole lot. THAT is where our battle is being fought!
There are 2 scenarios:
1. We get a filibuster-proof majority in the house and senate that is filled with conservatives and Romney can push through conservative legislation (very unlikely)
2. We get a simple majority in the house and senate and block EVERY bit of garbage the Obama admin. tries to push through. (much more likely)
If we have a divided congress, Mitt will try to make everyone happy and cross the isle. We’ll end up with another TARP-esque spending bill that the republican party will vote in favor of FOR THE SAKE OF PARTY, NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
