With Brown out, GOP mulls Romney energy
(He's back; Mr. RomneyCARE and family for MA Senate))
"Massachusetts Republicans are desperately scrambling to find
a strong Senate candidate to replace Scott Brown,
with some even trying to persuade Mitt Romneys wife or son
to jump into the race to avert another electoral disaster.
... Other GOP leaders also raised the prospect of Mitts eldest son, Tagg,
launching a surprise Senate campaign.
Tagg Romney was a close campaign adviser
and surrogate for his father and is a successful businessman living in Belmont."

So your opinion (and flawed advice) is:
“Go with Benedict Arnold because a General is needed?”
Sorry, that is not going to work.
How do we get to fifty one?
A false choice IMO. Mass voters have voted for libertarians many times and that would be a whole lot better than a "big government conservative" like Romney. The main solution to federal overreach is to shrink the federal government. For example the 1/2 billion to Planned Parenthood every year would go away not because some conservatives take on PP, but because it's out of scope and we can't afford it.
But strong conservative views would help a lot PP spent millions to defeat Romney (e.g. running ads here in Va). Romney did not fight against them, but "clarified" his views about them instead. That didn't inspire Virginia conservatives to say the least.
Preach it my brotha! You've got to rise uppah and testify!
We are here. We are p!$$3d. We will be heard. Read my tagline.
NO, I’m asking you for your opinion as to how do we get to fifty one acceptable Republican senators?
It was NOT just the Press that attacked Gov. Palin
on the eve of Election 2008, it was TEAM ROMNEY.
Team Romney are PROVEN backstabbers.
How did the presidential race work out for you, Granny? The only “destruction” that was wreaked was by YOUR BOY ROMNEY against actual conservatives.
Easy. NO MORE RINOs. NEVER. EVER.
They have given NOTHING but betrayal and Obama
and ObamaCARE. So get some coffee, Tagg.
These people refuse to go away. Note to Romneys: “YOU LOST. WE DON’T NEED NO STINKING LOSERS.”
This is going to take strategy and I see a lack of a sane strategy on FR.
Poor sport spoiler Romney doing what he does best:
It no longer matters. Perhaps you missed my declaration that the letter behind the name no longer makes a difference.
There are idolators on FR who tear down every other candidate except their own. You should stop listening to them. There were plenty of adequately conservative candidates like Perry, Gingrich, Cain, etc. Each had various problems, but the key is that people who harped on those problems were doing that because they wanted a different candidate to the point of irrationality. Those people can simply be ignored. Argue for a conservative candidate and why he or she is conservative and leave it at that.
I agree that sometimes conservatives expect a candidate to be with them on every detail, not only of principle but of strategy, and are unwilling to examine the issues in depth and seriously discuss them. There’s way too much slogneering in the GOP right.
However, when we have elected GOPers who are nothing but Dems in disguise, even if we technically have a majority, this hasn’t helped us because the very liberal GOPers often vote with the Dems. Electing “mavericks,” that is, GOPers in very light GOP disguise who then thrill the Dems by siding with them or attacking conservatives, has never worked and never helped us.
I think we need to have candidates who at least are conservative in principle, and I mean on social issues as well, if we’re going to offer an option and even get them elected in the first place.
Increasingly, people have wondered why they should vote for a fake Dem (a RINO candidate) when they could vote for the real thing, a registered Dem, and this has cost us many elections.
So while it’s true that sometimes people hold up themselves and their every opinion and slogan as the standard of purity, to the point that they won’t even discuss the positions of the candidates on issues unless it is 100% their own, there has to be a limit beyond which one is not a Republican and should consider openly running as a Dem.
I think Romney has passed that limit, and that’s one of the reasons people didn’t vote for him last time around.
If the movie "Misery" is ever re-made, she could play the part...you dirty bird
I am telling YOU and other Freepers with this suicidal death wish that because you refuse to recognize that this is not a perfect world, we are going to have to accept some we wish we did not have to accept, if we are ever going to gain any more political power.
We MUST use RINOS--WE MUST. It's either that or stand back and surrender to RATS. That is the reality.
I'm glad you are asking questions because we can point out that you are asking the wrong question. The right question is: how can we get the largest number of conservative Senators?
