CUE THE "ROMNEY'S A FILTHY COMMIE" BRIGADE

No, but he is a Progressive Liberal as his own record attests to.

With candidates like Palin, West, Rand, Cruz, etc...

It makes no sense to go with Willard, Jeb, or Chris.

Is the GOP afraid of actually running a REAL conservative? That they might win in Reaganesque fashion and have to actually DELIVER on their promises?

I always said that if we were to have a first in the nation primary, that it ought to be Missouri.

Think about it...

1. It’s midwestern in its thinking (the northern part)

2. It’s southern in its thinking (the southern part)

3. It’s suburban in it’s thinking (the burbs of KC and St Louis)

4. It’s urban in it’s thinking (KC and St Louis)

In short, it has a little of everything that would make it more representative than Iowa or New Hampshire.

P.S. I’m not from Missouri and have no relatives or business concerns there.

Romney wasn't my first choice in '12.He wasn't my second choice.But on election day I knew he'd be a noticeably...perhaps even dramatically...better president than Osama would be.And my suspicion has been proven correct.

What are you talking about? Romney, politically-speaking, is nothing more than Obama's clone.
And don't give me that shit about the party "holding his feet to the fire" — if they won't even oppose "the other team's guy", why should I believe they'd oppose their own?

moreover, anybody that approves of the plan to "repeal" Obamacare by issuing exemptions to all the states is an idiot — doing that would only give the President the power to extort the several states.
(It would be a shame if your exemption were… terminated, no?)

I was no fan of Mitt, but I pulled a lever for him simply because it would have removed H, and shut down the media obsession with the pathological liar.

That didn’t work, and here we are.

The handwriting may be on the wall, anyways. Obama has wreaked much havoc on America.

Have you ever even set foot in Massachusetts? I've lived here all my life.As a result I can attest to the fact that he's no Reagan...no Palin....no Cruz.But he's light years...LIGHT YEARS...better than Osama Obama,the Former Twelfth Lady and Princess Liawatha (who I met briefly...she's even filthier in person than on film).

The GOP reminds me of this:

You walk into a showroom and say “I want a Cadillac”

And the salesman says “oh great! we have this nice Honda over here”

And you say “No, I want a Cadillac there appear to be 6 Cadillacs on your lot”

And the salesman says “Ok well the favorite in all the magazines is this lovely Honda we have”

And you say “No, I want THIS Cadillac, the green one” and he says “No you can't have that one because because its not as good as this Honda, which is the favorite in the car and driver magazine just coming out this month”

And you go on this way over and over and over and they just don't seem to want to you to have a Cadillac.

Then later you learn he has part ownership in the Honda dealership...

This makes no sense. None. Not from a perspective of whether one likes him or not, but just from a party point of view.

If the GOP can’t come up with something “better” than what lost last time - then they have no effin clue what they’re doing. None at all.

And the same goes for Santorum. He has no chance to win either, so I sure hope the GOP doesn’t “fall back” on him.

I haven’t heard a name bantered about yet that really excites me. Whoever it is will need to win states that are becoming bluer and bluer because at the end of the day, it’s the MATH that counts, and right now, we’re already starting the game with 2 out in the 9th. And that’s with one of the $hittiest Presidents in ages.

I know a lot can happen in 2+ years, but just as the rumblings are obvious about Hildebeast, we should be hearing more obvious rumblings too. And it’s not Christie....and probably not Palin either.

I was on this yesterday.

As soon as Christie starts hanging onto the wheelwell of the bus, they drag out this spoile.

He’s got his stupid movie ready to go, goes on Fallon, Rush is hawking him, ‘oh if we had only seen this Mitt without all that campaign silliness’, then, with perfect timing, he says he already has a response for Candy Crowley. THat was yesterday. A mere year and a half after Benghazi, which if we want to think back that far, to the horrific ushering in of this president Romney displayed, was the subject of the Crowley deal.

GOP will never allow a conservative or even a patriot in there.

Romney pushed everyone out of the way and ushered in this. He’s getting ready to do the same for whatever criminal they want to put in there next, but it won’t be this conservative hating liberal GOP poseur.

Don’t be fooled.

He’s not a filthy commie, but if he’s really gonna be their frontrunner in the majority of the states, I am begging the GOP to show some dignity and concede 2016 and save themselves and non liberals the public humiliation. Romney trying to stop Hillary Clinton would literally be too painful and degrading to even watch.

It would be awesome if they could find a woman to contend against Hillary. Democrats are now at the level of the World’s Greatest magic performers when it comes to playing race, gender and class cards, which is why I am having a hard time putting faith in any upper class white male to win it for the GOP and why I think any male running against Hillary is gonna have serious problems.

I agree, the worst thing that could happened to us....... did happen! obama happened because he fooled his voters and he so disgusted many on our side that they stayed home.

Staying home and being/feeling perfect was the worst thing they could do but they are still defending their non action.

There’s also this

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/01/29/Poll-Sarah-Palin-Has-Highest-Favorability-Rating-Among-GOP-Primary-Voters

“According to Public Policy Polling:
The best liked person we tested on this poll with Republican primary voters is actually Sarah Palin who has a 70/20 favorability rating. She’s followed by Huckabee at 64/18, Ryan at 58/18, Paul at 58/21, Bush at 56/18, Cruz at 45/20, and Christie at 40/38. Most of those numbers are similar to what they were a month ago but Christie’s seen a substantial drop from +18 at 47/29 a month ago to his new +2 net favorability”

Both are lefty pollsters, but I’ve never even heard of “the Virginia-based bipartisan policy firm Purple Strategies”.

Don’t be played. The democrats know they are toast & they’re going to do their usual BS in the meantime.

(That said, imho, a President Romney would very likely have pushed hard for more gun control after Sandy Hook. As bad as 0bama is, I’m not sure we wouldn’t have been just about as bad off with Mitt. I’m just sayin’)

Ten bucks says that Princess Liawatha will be the Rat nominee in '16.Why? Because she's intelligent,articulate and far,*far* slimier than the Former Twelfth Lady ever dreamed of being.Remember...the Rat Party's true believers *always* go for the *lowest* of the low.I refer you to the current occupant of the Oval Office as proof.The Former Twelfth Lady,as filthy as she is,is Mother Teresa in comparison to either Osama Obama or Liawatha.
