Reading the liberals here on FR has convinced me that this republic is going to die from BLUE CANCER.
Perhaps that is so. In any event, it would be just as painful simply because the Dems will still be able to pull their perfected magician tricks with the gender and race cards - since they will be able to convince a significant number of Americans that Warren is a legit Native American. I just don’t see how any upper class Caucasian male in the GOP in 2016 has a snowball’s chance against Hillary or Fauxahontas.
romney and hillary are the perfect couple.
And the Second Amendment from what I have read.
Just .... No.
The perfect archetype.
Quit trying to shove your urban New England leftist down our throats. Mitt Romney would make a wonderful democrat. As a Republican, he’s a disaster.
Santorum tied Romney here in Michigan so the rules committee got together and decided it for Romney in a 5/2 vote. Former attorney general and Romney supporter, Mike Cox said it was a dirty way to play.
A tie would have given both 14 delegates but likely ended Romney. However several thousand people voted for Bachmann, Cain, and Ron Paul. I suspect most of those votes would have gone to Santorum if people had accepted the fact that their candidates had effectively dropped out. Gingrich was still in the race but he did stand down in Michigan to avoid screwing things up.
By the time Texas votes in the primary, the democrats and the media often have selected our candidate for us.
WE need to do something to fix the primary so it doesn't happen that way. Something like all states primary voting on the same day, no reporting till California polls close.
Other suggestions are welcome.
Then it is time for them to take their place next to the Whigs in the history books.
Hopefully he won’t; he’s too establishment and the second time will be more internally divisive than last time, sending even more of the GOP to sit it out than the numbers that did in 2012.
Tennessee voted for Sanctorum in 2012...
“There are a bunch of idiot liberals in Missouri AND Kansas. Witness Claire McCaskill and Kathleen Sebelius.”
Missouri is also a state that has a GOP-controlled legislature and the majority of its US House members are Republicans. No state is perfect.
My point is that demographically (for both parties), Missouri is more representative of the US mainstream than perhaps Iowa or New Hampshire is.
Anything Mitt didn’t win was called a “beauty contest” that doesn’t mean anything.
“Statist Mitt Romney represents the death of the GOP.”
Take heart, Jim, Jeb Bush is rethinking about running. lol
The purpose of this is to keep moving the party left, to keep trying to strengthen any influence that Romney can have in attacking conservatives, shaping the party issues, and in his endorsement value.
Good. I look forward to the battle. As I most likely won’t be voting, it’ll be a lot more fun.
Could get interesting.
Romney wants a repeat.
McCain has hinted at a repeat.
JBush is thinking seriously about jumping in.
Christie still wants to try.
Huckabee thinks he has a shot and he can claim to be the conservative.
Ryan thinks he has a shot, but like Rubio, their amnesty push killed any hopes they have.
Santorum is hinting.
Trump would take it if all the others would just let him have the nomination without all that primary and debate stuff.
Not a one of the above would be what you might call a quality candidate.
Then there is fear and trembling in the MSM board rooms, the DNC board room and the GOPelite board room that Cruz might jump in.
If the conservatives can coalesce behind one GOOD candidate, they might be able to triangulate against the GOPelites this time. But they need a GOOD candidate early, and not one of those semi/pseudo-conservatives that are conservative only when it is convenient or necessary to win an election.
No w F ay.
(No F in "way")
We’ll get exactly the candidates that the uniparty wants us to get.
Comedy gold was MacDonald playing dole in a “real world” sketch, yelling “who ate Bob Dole’s peanut butter?!”
Who knows, it’s been months, for all we know Romney has an entirely new set of political beliefs to sell.
“Christie is out, so the Dem-polls are desperately trying to anoint a new loser.”
I halfway expect them to drag out the ghost of Gerald Ford.
They tried that in the last election. How did that work out for them??
Just put an 'm' in front of the Canadian 'eh'.
I’m not going to bash Mitt, Lord knows he (or a ham sandwich) would be a helluva lot better that what we have now. But it would be foolish to run a retread of any kind. Nor, sweet merciful Jesus, do we need to run a Bush. Any Bush.
The thing is, I’m not sure who we can run that is any better, and frankly I dont think it matters. The leeches are simply too many.
I remember... romney is a dirty politician like kennedy and clinton. He plays for keeps against his own... and lays down and surrenders against obama.
preibus and the gop/e have done something... they have changed the rules so that if anyone tries to change the rules as you and I think thatthey should be changed... their states votes will not be counted.
We didn’t need Mitt the first time, or the second and certainly not a third.
Sadly the liberals in the GOPe will put up Krispy for the nom.
Nope don’t miss him in the least. My state when for Romney (always goes Pub). I voted and didn’t vote for niether of them, I voted my conscience and voted for Virgil Goode who was on my state’s ballot.
Maybe you should brush up on Electoral college before spouting such nonsense. Other than 3 or 4 states, popular vote didn’t matter.
All “politically blue areas” of the U.S. and U.S. territories continue to be “stuck on RINO Republicanism” and anti-conservative, when it comes to “GOP only” polls.
You meant a third time. Mitt ran for POTUS twice, already.
Boy, every day I feel more and more glad I didn’t vote for that moron. I still maintain that he could have easily ended up more damaging than Obama.
I’m sure Romney isn’t interested in going through that noise again.
"So am I!"
"*%&$ you!! It's MY turn again!!! Get outta my way &@#$ers!!!!
This is silly. Romney isn’t going to run. The poll represents name recognition by low-information respondents. It simply shows how stupid these polls are at this point.
My thoughts exactly.
Yep. Pathetic isn't it?
Why aren’t they testing Bob Dole and John McCain’s names??? Come on guys if you are going to dig up political corpses do it right.
“Why arent they testing Bob Dole and John McCains names??? Come on guys if you are going to dig up political corpses do it right.”
Well, they could always go for Nixon as well.
