I Hope Mitt Romney Fails
RINOList.org ^ | July 16, 2012 | donjuanluis07

Posted on 07/16/2012 12:23:12 PM PDT by donjuanluis07

After the election of Barack Obama in 2008, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves in January 2009 to announce his hope for the failure of Barack Obama's policies. He was very quick to make sure people understood he was not against Obama due to the color of his skin, but solely due to his policies.

In the same vein, I would like to announce a similar sentiment. I agree with Rush that Obama's polices should fail, and I hope they do. I also hope that the policies and philosophies of Mitt Romney fail as well.

Rather than debate the argument provided, you prefer the "but he's our rascal" argument. You can have that rascal if you want him. But as your lack of debate portrays, there is no "conservative" argument for supporting Romney. There is an "anti-Obama" argument, and there is a "pro-GOP" argument. But there is no "conservative" rationale whatsoever for pulling the lever for Romney. So, a large number of us conservatives won't do it. It's our vote and we reserve it for candidates sharing more than a modicum of conservative values. A level of which Romney does not even aspire to reach. If the GOPe wants us at the prom, they should pick a better dance partner for us. If they do not, it's high time we picked a better school. I'm actually very impressed that so many here at FR haven't been fooled and are resisting the urge to make 2012 a John McCain election redux. Romney made his own bed; now he is lying in it. And I hope every conservative in the nation sees him for what he is. If folks are going to become part of the "progressive" problem by supporting Romney, they should at least do so with their eyes open.

However, he cannot do much more damage IF we keep the House and gain the Senate, which it looks like we will.

More damage that he obviously will do in a second term ....

1) nominate two more sotomayerkagan's to SCOTUS;

2) use his veto pen to prevent the repeal of 0bamacare and other marxist policies he put in place;

3) see #1 and #2.

Also on Twitter and Facebook. They are paid to mask as republicans and post anti-Romney articles. Not sure how they get the articles.

Well, with O’s reelection we get a liberal supreme court for a generation that will approve of communism, and Obamacare will be implemented beyond repair.
And the ability to turn the tide on illegal immigration probably is at a turning point: we roll things back now, or never.
If we can’t turn the tide on immigration, we are going down a slippery slope like a wet mossy hill and we won’t be able to stop the slide as pandering to illegals will become required to get elected, and soon the electorate will be overwhelmingly redistributionist, and at that point it won’t be a matter of our candidate “is not conservative enough,” because we are going full communist, and the very property and $ that we own will be subject to redistribution.

Agreed. So after BO gets back in and tramples more of the Constitution can these ‘principled’ voters claim the mantle of victory? Not sure how when all they stand for would die right in front of them.

Dumb concept from the get go, just like the Palin prayer threads and the Ron Paul candidacy.

HUGE! A lot of us think that we have the luxury to just play around like this is some game, but the demographics are changing, and if we don’t fight to maintain some semblance of a conservative electorate, the libs could like that gain control and with no hesitation they WILL shut down Rush, conservative bloggers like hotair and weaselzippers, and us.
Will the lib supreme court that O appoints uphold this? And wealth taxes to fully redistribute $ and property? Yes.

Mitt Romney will only support DNC-approved Judge candidates.

Romney HATE Republicans as judges, avoids them
as if they were ... Gov. Sarah Palin.

I LOVE MITT ROMNEY and want him to install DEATH PANELS
for all ... except Moslems, of course, and Congressional
families and their staff. Because they are very special
just like Mitt Romney, our future Decider.

Please, skeeter, just show me the money.

Like a lot of conservatives, I did vote for McCain in 2008. We had no choice, remember? The alternative was Obama and the end of all elections and free speech. And, do you remember how it was said that right after the election, conservatives could assert themselves and assure that McCain would be the last of the liberal nominees?

What did we get for holding our noses and voting for McCain? Mitt Romney. And, we deserve it exactly because we held our noses and voted for McCain. Rove and company figured if we would accept McCain, we would have to accept anyone.

Never again. I will never again vote for a liberal, period.

You can take that to the bank, along with all the money you’re going to collect for us.

“Tom Hoefling for President - 2012”

Seriously, who is this? And how does voting for him save our Republic in any way? If he gets 1% and you pound your chest that you didn’t for vote for Romney and Obama wins, how does that help any of us here, including you? So you can say out loud you didn’t vote for Romney and then jump on here and tell us how bad Obama is?

This is a question, not a rant. I’m curious.

Amazing isn't it, Tau? Romney was so far progressive that he couldn't even beat John McCain (who is far from a bastion of conservative philosophy) in 2008. And yet some people today would have us believe (despite his flagrantly liberal political career) that Romney has donned the superman outfit and is ready to save the nation from ... the advocate of his Massachusetts health care legislation. What brilliant strategy: stand a fox on-guard at the hen house to defend it from the wolf. And, naturally, anyone who refutes that brilliance is 'working for' the wolf. I wonder if the incredible intellects that come up with this nonsense even realize they are accusing Jim Robinson himself of working for Obama. Not likely.

Truth be told, it is Mitt Romney that is lame
because of his timid, cowardly behavior
(not counting his vicious attacks on conservative women
through his Legion of Backstabbing surrogates)
and his pathetic liberal history, which leads to one fact:
Milt RomneyCARE cannot possibly win. He IS the CHOSEN Loser.

I'm done voting for liberals, period. I believe Tom is legitimate. I believe he means what he says. I can vote for Tom with pride.

If you like Romney and can vote for him with pride, then go for it. If supporting him makes you feel ashamed of yourself, then check out Tom as an alternative.

And, by all means, trust God. We're going to be all right.

Obama is an islamic sympathizer. Is Romney?

Obama was raised to despise the western form of government and way of life. Was Romney?

Obama was mentored by communists. Was Romney?

Obama allied himself politically with domestic leftwing terrorists and racial seperatist preachers. Has Romney?

As president Obama is determined to expand state power unilaterally, if needed, because he is a Marxist ideologue. Would Romney?

BTW you've been here long enough to be more careful who you make friends with.

I don’t like Romney at all, but the prospect of another four years of Obama will make me vote for him.

Are my principles compromised by doing so? Of course. Do I know already that my principles are being killed by BO? Yes.

This isn’t a vote between a liberal and a communist or a RINO and a socialist. It’s for a Republic over a tyrant.

If you feel you can sleep better voting for a guy why has no chance so that as Rome v 2.0 takes place you can yell you didn’t vote for Romney with a spear in your chest, then it is what it is.

God doesn’t care much about politics, so if you are hoping he will save you from bad policies and tyranny, you’ll be forever waiting. That’s the fall out of granting man Free Will. We are free to doom ourselves, God will not stop that.

But I can appreciate your honesty, so best of luck to you and Tom I guess.

Yeah, it is amazing in a way. Some folks just have not yet got it through their heads that there are a lot of us who will not just jump on their train this year. How could we reject Mitt Romney? He's been given the Karl Rove Seal of Approval - what's not to like?

As time goes on, it will become more clear to them that they are asking too much from too many people this time. It is not likely that Romney will be able to expand his liberal base widely enough to make up for the loss of conservative support.

Maybe they'll listen to us next time, who knows?

No sale, junior.

Tau Food's posting record

In nearly six months of posts NOTHING but anti-Romney stuff. I mean NOTHING. I reviewed the whole posting record and I encourage you and others to do the same.

And typically the most superflous and scurrilous of the DNC talking points (lied about his tenure at Bain Capital, Stericycle, dog in a cage on the car, that sort of crap.)

NOT ONE SINGLE pro-conservative, anti-liberal or anti-Obama opinion voiced. Zero. Zip, Zilch. Nada.

Even Diogenesis, for all his high-volume colorful graphical romneyhating occasionally, although very rarely, makes an anti-liberal or pro-conservative post.

My inescapable conclusion: Tau Food is a troll. Paid or not, who cares. Still a troll.

advisors??? gotta come up better with that. I can tell Obama to quit. and I can tell Romney to be a conservative.. Neither have to do what I say..

I counter with this..

http://gopprimary2012.com/a-look-at-romneys-judicial-philosophy-conservative-reform-in-the-most-liberal-state/

Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents – including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.

Look.. I am going to vote for the guy. But I am smart enough to know he is only slightly to the right of Obama.. I am not happy about it but that is the choice it boils down to. Obama will never kill Obamacare. Romney might. It’s a weak nail to hang my had on. but it’s all we have right now.

Romney, formerly pro abortion has flipped and now says he's pro life. Is he? Who knows.

Obama, with the most radical views on abortion possible, has not changed his position. We do know he's still radically pro abortion.

One or the other will be president come January. There will be no other outcome.
