Americans really wish they had elected Mitt Romney instead of Obama

Posted on 07/27/2014 4:56:28 PM PDT by NoLibZone

Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they'd overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor's bid. That's just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released Sunday, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That's an even larger spread than CNN found in November, when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent.

I voted for the putz. A putz is a putz, but I’d rather have the putz.

The media always reports things as if Obama was really elected. I don’t believe it. Voter fraud is always disregarded.

But when Romney himself was polled he said that he didn’t really want to win and still preferred Obama.

If they had voted for Mitt, the white guilt thing would have kicked in and they wouldn’t be feeling good about themselves the way they are now. Naw. The Mitt thing wouldn’t have worked. Everybody Loves Barry.

romney was my last “least of two evils” vote.

He would have been abundantly better than zero...

... in that the march toward Armageddon would have been slower.

But we still would have been marching toward Armageddon.

Romney would need more than a 9-point pole margin to win. He would have to overcome the dead voters, the illegal voters and the multiple-time voters.

This is actually much to obama’s delight. It proves he's hurting the very people he intended to.

“Americans are so down on President Obama at the moment that, if they could do the 2012 election all over again, they’d overwhelmingly back the former Massachusetts governor’s bid...”

Well, they had their chance. I’ve never been a big fan of Mitt (except when he was taking Obama apart in that first debate, hee hee!), but I voted for him. I voted for him because I knew what four more years of Obama meant. Now these clowns do, too.

Of course, if Romney HAD won, these same folks would probably be whining how much they wish Obama had won.

Get ready for the GOPe-bots. If the Pubbies don't take the Senate in November, they'll blame you (and me).

Evidence of that are the threads on Chris McDaniel, calling him a "poor loser", while barely acknowledging the racist attacks launched by the Cochran campaign.

He was the lesser of the 2 evils.

Ultimately, it is God’s hands and in Him all true believers put their trust, because they know Him and believe His Word. The downward spiral into world-wide sin at the end is foretold in the Scriptures.

You did some unnecessary searching. Just searching for Romney would show this article had not been posted.

Democrats have been seeking revenge against Bush 43 for “stealing” the presidency from Al Gore. So who’s to say conclusively that Romney actually didn’t win 2012 with respect to media-ignored allegations of Democratic ballot box stuffing?

In fact, I’ve always wondered why Romney didn’t fight the issue to the Supreme Court like Bush did. It was like Romney was just following a script, his role being to lose the election.

And it’s too bad that these dirty races for control of the Oval Office are based on crook “leaders” wanting to exercise constitutionally nonexistent federal government powers imo.

That may have been Mitt’s response when asked at that moment. The campaign season, which nowadays can last for two or almost three years is an emotional rollercoaster. Romney is only human, so it’s not surprising he may pretend that he ‘didn’t want it anyway’ in an effort to hide the immense disappointment, hurt and anger; all so-called negative qualites, not tolerated from president or wanna-be president either.

Yes. I would vote for him again. No, I would not stay at home to ‘teach the GOP a lesson’. They never learn that way. Hold back on party contributions unless you get commitments. That is how they learn to reshape their behavior. It;s like dealing with teenagers; don’t spend too much time moralizing, get them where it hurts, in the wallet.

America did elect Romney, if you take back the dead votes and voter fraud by democrats Romney did win the election, as Stalin once said, “it isn’t about who votes, it’s about who counts the votes.”

If Romney had wanted to win, he could have won. But he’s a heavily conflicted liberal who just can’t in good conscious go against The Black Man.

I’m not sure anyone objects to re-posting a story that might have been overlooked.

The annoying part is an every hour or two re-posting of a story linked to by a popular site like Drudge. Or the case of some lame Hollywood movie that ended up with about 40(!) different threads.

And, by the way, the CNN Romney do-over poll has been posted before:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3185716/posts

Hardly a big deal.

I am not voting for another RINO again. I don't care if Obama gets a 3rd term.

Trouble is....voter fraud is good for 12-point margin. Romney would lose again.

Please Mitt, go golfing with BHO, or work on your 1-year food hoard.

You're confusing Romney with McCain, who didn't want to stand in the way of American's 1st black Pres.

I'm a Cruz guy, but Mitt would have been good on most of the critical issues. It's so sad.

Sorry, the country needs someone who knows what they want to do with the job from day one, has the people who can do it, and has the balls to really really hurt the people who need hurting.

Romney is a no-nuts loser with a misplaced sense of noblesse oblige and no stomache for what actually needs to be done.

Romney managed to lose an election that republicans couldn’t lose.

Coming out against the GOP pro-life platform and for abortion and running pro-choice ads in Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin, and reminding us that he supported gay Scout leaders, were among his in your face attacks against voters after he won the nomination.

Well Obama has taught us many things:

Our founding fathers were right. They wrote the Constitution the way they did for a reason; to stop tyrants. all of the rights reinforce each other.

He taught us what we don’t ever want again in a president.

We need to examine any candidate’s background and beliefs before they are elected. Any candidate running for public office should give full disclosure of their identity, their background, and their political affiliations

He taught us that executive privilege needs to be reviewed and changed.

How evil and deceptive the left really is.

To never again trust the MSM.
