Posted on 01/18/2012 7:28:44 AM PST by Milagros

What would be the toughest sacrifice?

1) RonmeyCare issue?

2) Values / he's pro-abortion.

(3 Is his Mormonism is an issue by you?)

Candidately speaking, if you are going to be a Surrender Monkey, just go away!

Confidence in a president to do the right thing.

I'm afraid Mutt's core principles may evolve yet again.

Our liberty... as having Romney as the GOP candidate will assure the re-election of Obama who will then continue to trample on the Constitution and rule by decree.

Wishful thinking on your part.

Myth Romney is Bob Dole on steriods.

He was defeated before he even started down the path to POTUS.

The presidency. Even if he won, he'd pimp out on changing anything that this illegal alien did during the last 3 years.

And Hitlery will be able to use material from the stolen FBI files at the right moment to bury this democrat-in-republican clothing.

If your conservative principles are actually principles, you won't give up even if they do give up.

ANd you'll stop floating silly vanities with no value.

Never settle for a moderate/liberal like Myth, find someone you can vote for, even if he/she is not the GOP Nominee.

Focus on downstream races that do have a conservative candidate.

No, but you are surrending, or pretending to, after two out of fifty primaries.

It's simple.

Romney will lose to Obama, and by a very large margin.

The USA, with the rest of the world close behind, will experience a thousand years of darkness under a muslim/communist reign of terror.

If Romney is the nominee then when Zero gets 4 more years it will be a good time to make aliyah I think.

Am I the only one who’s tired of holding their nose when they go to vote? This is why the US has such a low voter turnout every election. We’re always stuck with 2nd or 3rd best.

I didn’t like at all, his weak ‘lip service’ on Islamic Nuclear Genocidal Iran [to be looked upon as a “moderate” by CNN/BBC/PBS, etc.] VS Santorum/Gingrich daring ‘like it is’ tellers.

Well, since it would pretty much guarantee Comrade Zero’s reelection, I’d figure liberty would be gone and I’d be preparing for the brownshirts to take me to reeducation camp (and I’m only half kidding).

Don’t think of it as giving anything up. Think of it as a reason to vote good people into the house and senate and force Romney to be a good president.

The white house is the anvil and congress is the hammer.

A true conservative should never consider and should never actually vote for someone to the Left as Romney’s record shows he is.

Good question, and I know a lot of us have also been thinking
along these lines.
I don’t know how easy it is to predict that there are any “issues” that would be “sacrificed”, because Romney, by all accounts, will pay lip service to any and all issues he thinks will get him nominated, which means continuing to do well enough in all primaries to keep him in contention.
Early on, he said, with that urgent, nervous smile and that breathless delivery he has, that he was “A Tea Party Person”
because,like them, he “believed in smaller government”. That was supposed to be enough to snare the Tea Party vote without going through the process of the Tea Party promoting HIM (he was supposedly promoting THEM).
The worst thing about Romney (including all the things we know he’s already DONE, like RomneyCare) is that he creates no confidence in us that he even UNDERSTANDS the big picture
of the mess both Dems and RINOS have left us with, how and why it happened, and what kinds of things we have to address NOW to get us out of it.
He spouts nothing but the usual election cycle cliches about jobs, the economy,and making America great again, stuff I have heard my entire lifetime from EVERY challenger to an incumbent, Dem or Repub. He is so Establishment, and so totally lacking in visceral excitement, that it makes my teeth hurt just hearing and looking at him.
Like it or not, the ONLY one who keeps coming back strong, and ON TOP, showing enormous nerve and backbone, not to mention a dizzying and effortless command of issues , is
NEWT. I like him more every day,and look forward to saying more about him as time goes on.
Newt, for all his faults, is ,at least in this field of contenders, shaping up as both a mensch and a COLOSSUS.

The fact that we settled on another DBM-selected candidate like Romney. And, IMO, if Romney gets the nomination, I think we will have a wishy-washy flip-flopper who will bow to the whims of the Democrats - and that's NOT what we want.
