You know Hunter and Thompson
and Rudy and Keyes,
Ron Paul and Tancredo
McCain, Huckabee.
But do you recall
the most famous contender of all? 
 
Romney the red-mitt Mormon
Was a shining CEO
When the Olympics hired him
You can say our nation glowed
 
All of the politicians
Used to laugh and call him "lame"
They wouldn't let Mitt's army
Join in any DC games
 
One Fat Tuesday voters came
Pollsters heard them say:
"Romney with your mind so bright
Wont' you take the helm tonight?
 
Mitt then began his mission
Orchestrating Washington
Faithful, commanding Romney
He became our favorite son!

Mitt was a flip flopper,
Would tell you what you want to hear.
Mitt was a liberal,
but conservative this year.

Oh Mitt with your pandering,
What truly do you believe?
Is it forced RomneyCare,
Or billions for Detroit?

Romney may well become our next president. Should he get the 'Pubbie nod, I'll vote for him in the general.

Then I'll go home and hack off my lever-pullin' finger with a dull 'n rusty nail file.

Fairly lame-o. I'd recommend this:

All of the Moms and Daddies,
Used to yell out loud, "for shame!"
Mitt wouldn't let the Boy Scouts,
Join in the Olympic games.

Mitt Romney is a very decent man and does not deserve to be called names by Conservatives.

The man loves his wife, loves his family, loves his country and is trying to serve it in a way he thinks will be helpful.

If you do not want to vote for him that is fine. But this is not the kind of American we need to be tearing down at this time in our history.

Well, I am not new, but I AM anti-Romney.

Of course, I am also anti-Rudy, anti-McCain, and anti-the-crazy-guy whose name I forget.

Generally disgusted with the lot of them.

Actually, this one's even better:

There once was a liberal named Mitt,
Who had lots of dough, I admit.
But the voters got wise
To his phony disguise
And now his campaign looks like sh!t.

Actually the same can be said about most of the Republican candidates including all those who have dropped out. I have good reasons for not wanting Romney to be president none of which have anything to do with his decency (unless you think distrusting him reflects on that).

Mine doesn’t rhyme. But it does expose Chet, or Biff, or Mitt or whatever his name is:

Everywhere McCain has been less than conservative, Romney is on record as just as bad (usually much worse):

McCain introduced McCain-Feingold. Romney supported measures stricter than McCain Feingold before his run for president, source below:

http://www.earnedmedia.org/fred1219.htm


McCain supported embryonic stem cell research, which is evil, and falls for the old incest ploy, but has otherwise been staunchly pro-life. Romney supported stem cell research, taxpayer funded abortion, abortion by minors without consent of parents, and all MA abortion law (sources below).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_w9pquznG4

http://blog.washingtonpost.com/fact-checker/2007/09/romney_and_abortion.html


McCain has occasionally buckled on Gun rights, but Romney is FAR worse:

http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/01/14/romney_retreats_on_gun_control/

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzYTdM9b5F4


Romney talks about Reagan now (who endorsed John McCain for Senator btw), but he was not a Reagan republican in the 80s, but a self-described independant:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pVqZzHm3Z4&feature=related


Romney supported Gay rights (link below, but hold your nose, it’s a log cabin republicans site so I excerpted it for you):

http://online.logcabin.org/mitt-romneys-flip-flops.html

“All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual orientation. While he does not support gay marriage, Mitt Romney believes domestic partnership status should be recognized in a way that includes the potential for health benefits and rights of survivorship.”
- Romney’s 2002 campaign website

“Mitt and Kerry Wish You a Great Pride Weekend! All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual preference”
- A flier handed out at “Gay Pride” by the Romney/Healey Campaign See the flier here

“We have discussed a number of important issues such as the Federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which I have agreed to co-sponsor, and if possible broaden to include housing and credit, and a bill to create a federal panel to find ways to reduce gay and lesbian youth suicide, which I also support. One issue I want to clarify concerns [grammar in context] President Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t pursue” military policy. I believe that the Clinton compromise was a step in the right direction. I am also convinced that it is the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nation’s military. That goal will only be reached when preventing discrimination against gays and lesbians is a mainstream concern, which is a goal we share…”
- Governor Romney letter to Log Cabin Republicans, October 6, 1994

http://online.logcabin.org/romney_us_senate_letter_-122590-1_12_08_2006_02_30_30_pm.pdf


McCain overplayed Romney’s comments on timetables, but McCain was taking serious flack for pushing for a troop surge while Romney undeniably hedged on the surge:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/014/665onpkm.asp?pg=1


Romney has also had a “Road to Damasus, I mean Pennsylvania avenue, conversion” on immigration:

In a November 2005 interview with the Globe, Romney described immigration proposals by McCain and others as “quite different” from amnesty, because they required illegal immigrants to register with the government, work for years, pay taxes, not take public benefits, and pay a fine before applying for citizenship.

“That’s very different than amnesty, where you literally say, ‘OK, everybody here gets to stay,’ “ Romney said in the interview. “It’s saying you could work your way into becoming a legal resident of the country by working here without taking benefits and then applying and then paying a fine.”

Romney did not specifically endorse McCain’s bill, saying he had not yet formulated a full position on immigration. But he did speak approvingly of efforts by McCain and Bush to solve the nation’s immigration crisis, calling them “reasonable proposals.”

Romney also said in the interview that it was not “practical or economic for the country” to deport the estimated 12 million immigrants living in the US illegally. “These people contribute in many cases to our economy and to our society,” he said. “In some cases, they do not. But that’s a whole group we’re going to have to determine how to deal with.”

And lastly, tax cuts:

http://www.clubforgrowth.org/media/uploads/070820-white-paper-romney.pdf

he did not support the Bush tax cuts and won the praise of Barney Frank for not doing so!

Mitt Romney is a very decent man and does not deserve to be called names by Conservatives.

Why not? Is he somehow above American political tradition? Is he better somehow? Politics are dirty. If he can't stand the heat, is he prepared to be president of the most powerful nation on the planet and all that entails?

The man loves his wife, loves his family, loves his country and is trying to serve it in a way he thinks will be helpful.

As nice as that is, none of that qualifies him to do anything. Lots of people love their spouse. It qualifies them for nothing.

If you do not want to vote for him that is fine. But this is not the kind of American we need to be tearing down at this time in our history.

I disagree. I think we need to know if our candidates have what it takes to do the job. That includes asking them hard questions about their past ideas and demanding answers. Wanting to be president is not enough. Having the money to finance your own campaign is not enough. Having a pretty wife is not enough. Going to church every week is not enough. It takes more than those things to be a tough, effective leader at this time in history.

It takes internal fortitude, a willingness to stand tough and be strong. It takes an internal compass that doesn't change with the political winds. Mitt Romney is lacking in those areas and it is very much in keeping with American tradition to point out his many shortcomings.

The American voter should not be impressed because someone has stayed married or has a nice wife or has enough money to run for election. We don't give out presidencies for that. We need to know much more, and the process is dirty. Why do so many Romney supporters demand special treatment for their candidate? Isn't he tough enough to take it?

Even if I have reluctantly come to the conclusion that Mitt is the only candidate left who is supportable, I still support him with a lot of trepidation and belief that I will likely be greatly disappointed in the result. Thus, the kind of cheerleader stuff that we might enjoy for Thompson or Hunter doesn’t do it for me when it is done for Romney. It’s more like a chore to vote for Romney than a pastime.

Seriously, our choices are McCain and Romney? Sad.

No candidate is perfect - each vote we make is either a compromise or a nose-holding vote against the worse of two choices.

But when it comes down to a choice between McCain and Romney I do not see how any rational Reagan Republican or Conservative can pick McCain.

I think a lot of rabid anti-Romney people are making a big mistake by tearing down the only viable McCain stopper left.

Hasn’t McCain hurt the country enough already?

In the final analysis the best back up move is to vote out the Washington insiders.

Romney & McCain are both very decent men, both with liberal pasts and conservative platforms.

I would support either in the general election.

I’m on the McCain Train next week. But McCain already takes his base for granted; the last thing he needs is a landslide on Big Tuesday.

“Reading this made me think (a) someone took a lot of time doing this, and (b) the sentiment is wasted.”

The lyrics came in a matter of minutes. It was getting that dang mitten on Rudolph that took so long.

My sentiment is really a desire to see Mitt’s millions become votes, and something of a mandate for McCain. McCain gave a humble speech last night (about the closeness of the race) and I’d to see that attitude continue.

Mitt was a flip flopper, Oh, you admit he on the right side half the time? Better a flip flop than a steady flop! When has McCain ever been on the right side when it mattered, in word or deed, since he became a media darling. Even his support for the surge was just a calculated ploy to raise his poll numbers at the expense of Bush's. He was talking and leaning cut and run to the WashPo 3 months before the Romney quote for which he falsely claimed Romney was doing that. With Romney, at the worst, we'd have someone who might pander to us. With McCain he'd only pander to the media and the libs, because they are his only true friends.

To vote for McCain, I would have to hold my nose, cover my mouth and close my eyes, and that would cause me to suffocate in the dark. He would lose in a mammoth landslide, so I would use the opportunity to try to build a conservative party from the rubble, either through the existing infrastructure of the GOP, as Reagan did in 1976, or in a new party, as Lincoln did in 1856.
