Here’s reality. With Mitt you may not know what you are getting when it comes to abortion and gay rights. His record is fuzzy and it can be argued he was against or for each one. On the other hand you know what you are getting in McCain as his name is attached to some of the worst legislation Congress has ever introduced. It is clear that if you are a conservative he will bend you over and rape you. That is a fact. Mitt may or may not do that but I’m willing to take a chance that he will be more conservative on more issues than McCain. Also, he has never come out and spit in our faces and poked us in our eyes like McCain. That in itself should earn him good will and secure his support among conservatives.

There’s the whole deal, folks. The Republican establishment has decided to treat conservatives like the Democrats treat black voters. Shame on us if we let them.

What do you mean? Romney's the Conservative Candidate™. How could we not like him? He's saying everything we want to hear [now]? Sheesh...what do you want like someone who's actually serious about it? Geez...

Looks like “electability” is going to be a problem for whoever wins the nomination.

If the GOP was going to check Conservative credentials at the end of the process why didn’t they look in the beginning and pick Hunter or Thompson?

ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I may not trust Romney as much as I would like to but I absolutely hate McCain. I think even his own mother will have to hold her nose to vote for him.

Save your breath, DaBadGuy. These clowns here would rather piss and moan about who's the least RINOy of the RINOs instead of backing the guy that's been conservative since many of them were in grade school.

And it's not just FR, it's ALL of the media conservatives and pundits. They exclude Paul's name but tell us to get behind Romney or else.

Usually the networks don’t have a clue how Republicans are thinking. But this is pretty much on the money, which I find pretty surprising. No shilling for McCain or pretending that Republicans like him. Or that they like Romney a whole lot better.

What are the chances that we can deadlock the convention and draft Fred?

The sad thing is that the current crop of RINOs are supposedly playing to the right for the primaries. I hate to think what the center will look like when we get a nominee.

But wait! I thought all of Paul's supporters were leftists and moonbats! So how are we helping to elect McCain then?

In this case, ABC is correct. It's a wacky world for sure.

Go Mitt, go away.

I DON'T TRUST HIM either.

The GOP needs to take a MAJOR Mulligan for this election. Throw all the bums out and find some REAL conservatives.

McCain’s 96-year-old mother, Roberta, said the Republican base will ultimately accept her son, the front-runner.

“I think holding their nose they’re going to have to take him,” she told C-SPAN recently.
___________________________________________________

The four remaining contenders in the Republican field all have an army of opposition for vARYING REASONS...

So let’s look at their Mom’s for guidance in our choice of nominee for POTUS..

McCain likes to transport his aging mother around on the camopaign trail..

But if your own mother wont vote for you without reservations, you’re in trouble...

And Romney’s mother was pushing abortion years before Roe V Wade...

So he wont be attractive to conservative voters....

That just leaves the other two GOP candidates in the Battle of the Moms..

I gather Dr Paul’s Mom is no longer with us...

So, does Mike Huckabee’s Mom love him ???
