Skip to comments.Gary Johnson Is Costing Romney Florida
Posted on 11/06/2012 8:02:06 PM PST by My Favorite Headache
Gary Johnson has collected 42,000 votes so far in Florida. As of right now 10,000 votes separate Mitt Romney from Barack Obama.
Hope you like another 4 years you Johnson idiots.
On the Mark Levin electoral map it has live results of the entire state...even Rosanne Barr has 1,000 votes.
DAMMIT! I get to live with Obama and Obamacare because of Gary Johnson. WONDERFUL!!
Stupid people wasting their votes on Gary Johnson. I hope they like the next 4 years - it will be worse than the last. Stupid, stupid, people in this country.
“Gary Johnson has collected 42,000 votes so far in Florida.”
It is up to the candidate to attract voters. Mitt has electoral disfunction and didn’t do it. Every one of those Johnson voters could have voted for Mitt. He didn’t close the sale. His bad.
Willard cost Willard Florida. And many other States as well. He couldn’t even carry his Home State...
You were warned about what happens when you run a f*cking RINO...
Would you call Akin and Mourdock RINO’s too?
Yep. A RINO is so much worse than a communist who wants to destroy the republic from within. Nice call, comrade.
From NBC: Sources on Both sides expect Romney to win Florida by less than 100,000 votes. 100,000 is within the margin of error so a recount will be done if this comes to fruition and will making the hanging chads incident look like cotton candy.
Thank god Rick Scott is governor and not a demorat.
Things don’t match what I’ve seen.
In Palm Beach County there are way more signs for Romney than Obama. There are people on corners waving signs for Romney, none for Obama. Similar in other counties except around Orlando. Anecdotal, I know.
The Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections enabled two extra days of voting, voting opportunities that other counties did not have. Fact.
The trend, the enthusiasm... I have doubts that Obama is winning in Florida.
Actually Obomney cost Johnson the election. Very little difference between Oboma and Romney really. Romney ignored the National debt and had no plan whatsoever to balance the budget and wanted to continue fighting wars to bleed us dry. He even supported suspending the Bill of Rights ala NDAA
With the entitlement state due to explode in the next 4 years - unless anyone thinks the gutless wonder from Ohio will stand up to Obama - we're probably done as a party. The fools who can vote themselves money now outnumber the rest of us.
Libertarians are fools. I say this as a former card carrying, dues paying Libertarian. I realized they were fools when I was in my twenties. That’s when I realized it was stupid to let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Read your Ayn Rand but vote Republican, unless you’re a fool. Their heart’s in the right place but they are fools.
Gary Johnson was also a problem in New Hampshire. Heck, that was the point, wasn’t it? Defeat Romney?
The time to decide on a candidate is in the primary. When your candidate comes out with <1% of the vote, you have two choices: go with the winning team and SAVE OUR COUNTRY, or piss and moan and give America over to a sh!tbag communist retard.
When Mitt won the nomination, I swore I would never vote for him. That lasted about two days, until I was able to man up and accept the fact that in order SAVE MY COUNTRY I would have to vote for someone who didn’t represent all of my values, but who sure as hell represented more of them than Obama.
Sleep well, Johnson voters.
LOL. Yeah, the “gimees” wold have preferred Newt. /s
No decent person could support the Libertarian platform.
Libertarian Party Platform:
Throw open the borders completely; only a rare individual (terrorist, disease carrier etc.) can be kept from freedom of movement through political boundaries. Eliminate the Border Patrol and INS.
Homosexuals; total freedom in the military, gay marriage, adoption, child custody and everything else.
Abortion; zero restrictions or impediments, of any type, at any time.
Pornography; no restraint, no restrictions, full advertising and marketing.
Drugs; Meth, Heroin, Crack, and anything new that science can come up with, zero restrictions, full advertising and marketing.
Advertising those drugs, prostitution, and pornography; zero restrictions.
Military Strength; minimal capabilities.
Yep, instead they decided to send the message: "I'm fine with Obama. Politically, I'm an idiot."
Oh, please. If someone has to distort reality that much to justify themselves..
Exactly....Coulter told us “TO SHUT THE F-CK UP AND TRUST HER WHEN SHE PICKS A CANDIDATE”
REPUBLICANS WIN WHEN THEY ACT LIKE CONSERVATIVES. PERIOD.
Johnson has 41,928 votes now. Roseann has 7,689. We could have used those votes.
“Yep, instead they decided to send the message: “I’m fine with Obama. Politically, I’m an idiot.”
I think the message was... Mitt has nothing to offer. They voted accordingly. Mitt’s bad. He followed the Dewey strategy of not risking anything. I’m sad Zero won.
Partially agree. Romney ran a reasonable campaign for a RINO many of us detested. Actually it was better than I expected and there were some good moments. Romney got in because conservatives couldn't close the deal on an alternative candidate and were squabbling over Newt vs Santorum etc. A unifying candidate is a must when you fight the democrat machine. Even then with increasingly entrenched socialism it will become harder for conservatives to run any candidate that can win nationally.
There are numerous policy similarities between the two.
The big difference between Obama and Romney is malevolence and love of country. Obama hates the US and wants to harm it, Romney does not.
If you’re looking for somebody to blame look to the RNC RINOs and your idiot neighbors who vote for Obama.
Obama has 3,953,724 now. Romney has 3,911,070, with 10% of votes to be counted.
Hope you like another 4 years you Johnson idiots.
Keep deriding libertarians, it obviously works so well in getting them to join ranks with Republicans.
If it weren't for things like the Tyrannical War on Drugs, for example, those libertarian Johnson voters would probably be voting for Mitt Romney, as I did.
As long as Republicans continue to decry Democratic Tyranny, while still embracing their own petty Tyrannical tendencies, such as the aforementioned contraband and prohibition laws, scenarios like this are going to recur.
So GOP authoritarians can take their share of responsibility for alienating just enough libertarian conservatives to actualize that result.
It's tragic. We were so close to defeating 0bama, but thanks to a complicit media, hysterical women, and a perfect storm named Sandy, it looks rather doubtful at this moment.
I couldn't be more disappointed, including being angry at the GOP elite who were so sure that a moderate was the answer to defeating 0bama.
I'd rather have seen somebody like Palin or Gingrich take a shot.
As it stands, Obamacare is now a given.
And, with each subsequent election, the driving issue will increasingly be "which party can best manage our National Healthcare System?"
Which is a job that is likely to turn today's Conservatives into a clone of Britain's Tories...
The folks who voted for Johnson cut their nose off to spite their face....either that or the dope they smoked was too strong and they couldn’t figure it out.
Apparently lots of folks forgot 1992 and enjoyed Bill Clinton’s eight years
Those who said screw everyone the only way to get a conservative is to let O win....yeah well since the country will no longer be a federated republic in four years I hope you enjoyed your freedom while you had it.
Blaming Johnson for a few thousand votes it utterly mistaken. It should have been a CAKEWALK for the Republicans.
Gary Johnson is very pleased with his FL vote, for he predicted on Monday that Obama would win again, and Johnson’s own NM is also in the Obama column again.
Sorry, Obama = Romney is just nuts.
look to the RNC RINOs
If we re-elect Obama, the stupidity runs a lot deeper than that.
I look to the dumb folks who voted for Obama and those who didn't vote for the only one who could defeat him. It was a no-brainer election. Now we have more bad times ahead.
If I blame any 'group' it's dumb people, in particular those dumb about politics and government. Every eligible person who didn't get out and vote for Romney.
