The Economy is so bad I ran out of Clothespins..... So he is definitely not getting my vote.

Mrs. Palin is playing a vital role where she is now. I think she adds more value by helping conservative candidates all around the country.

SarahPAC helps them.

If the Republicans can't nominate a conservative, I'm writing in Ted Cruz.

No more liberal Republicans for me. I've had enough.

And to those here who say I'm wasting my vote and ensuring another liberal Democrat administration, I say, tough tookies. I'm not holding my nose and voting for another liberal ever again.

Romney, who still has not apologized to the Palin
family or America for throwing the Election of 2008
and walking out on the Election of 2012,
regards himself as the GOP dealmaker.

And he is.

He truly represents everything the GOP stands for as of today.

Election fraud.

Open borders.

Self-serving attitudes.

Ignoring Constitutions.

Attacking conservatives and their families
while being MUTE to the real issues.

Statism — as shown previously BY HIS whim.

Since Romney was the unanimous choice in the primary, whose fault is it that he wasn't elected?

Or are you one of those guys who say "if they had only chosen MY GUY, we would have won?"

Get over it.......

Christ could have been the GOP nominee and there would have been people condemning him for his support of welfare..........(You know, that free feeding of the masses with fish and bread thing)

Romney is heaps better than jeb and chris put together. Everyone here knows that Mitt could turn this economy around and have it going gangbusters in well under a term. On the social issues I think he’d be very good as well. He has the experience to manage and Lead this nation. He may not be the ideal candidate but I honestly think he is the best electable choice. My 0.02 cents worth.

I’m not sure about ‘good’ and ‘decent’, after the way he treated fellow republicans. He’s definitely two-faced. He’s just a younger slicker version of Thad Cochran.

So what, he wasn’t much of a candidate in 2012, and according to his son he never wanted to be president.

It’s too bad he can’t differentiate himself from the average Democrat.

Now the path is clear for Jeb, who has promised to govern like LBJ.

you sound like a democrat who blames everything on Bush. get over Romney. he didn’t win and he won’t be running again. of course i’m sure that you’re most pleased by the fact that Romney didn’t win, which oh...by the way..meant that we got 4 more years of BO. God save America.

So how’s Obama as president working for you? Maybe Romney wasn’t the PERFECT GOP candidate, but I’ll be damned if he would have brought this country to it’s knees with the chaos, destruction and lies that the current WH occupant has!

Nominate a better candidate in the future.
Then don’t alienate your base who you need to win.
Nominate another Bush or Christie and you will end up with the same result.

Your type of candidates, like Dole, McCain and Romney do not excite anyone.

But "good and decent" men don't support abortion or the gay agenda, however, reprobates do.

Nope, that was a true act of charity, there was no government force involved, but nice try with the false analogy.

Actually, both Bushes went away, but backstabber
Rat Romney did not.

Nor did he apologize to America for helping Obama, yet.
