Vanity | September 12, 2011 | Xzins

Posted on 09/12/2011 4:22:19 PM PDT by xzins

Romney is Obama-Lite. Take the simple pledge:

I will not vote for Romney for any reason.

after 4 more years of Obama

Only slightly less decrepit than under four years of a fascist RINO.

I WILL vote for Romney against Obama, and then primary him in 2016.

But I WILL NOT help Obama get re-elected by sitting on my lazy ass because my candidate didn’t get nominated.

Until further notice, elections are one on one endeavors. Since 1988 it has come down to two crappy candidates. That just means I vote for the least worst.

If it comes down to Romney vs zero, I’ll crawl over broken glass to vote for Romney.

Congratulations.

You just admitted that you would crawl over broken glass to vote for a fascist.

I can’t sign it.

I don’t think he’s Obama Lite, anyway, that’s over the top.

Even if he were, I’d rather have Obama Lite than Obama.

More of the conservative base are saying they won’t vote for Romney than will.

That means the rino will lose.

And that means he sure as heck better not win the primary.

If Obama wins. I won’t complain. Flag this as a promise I make to you and all of the Freepers. But I refuse to vote for Romney. They are both Progressive socialists and I would not be able to look at myself in the mirror. I voted for the “other guy in 2008” and I shudder to think that he would have put us in the same place we are now, just a little slower.

Romney blew it on romneycare but you can take each of the candidates and find something really unpleasant
Perry is pro-amnesty
Cain seems to be absolutely clueless on foreign policy. Yes, there is a country named Afghanistan.
Palin would bring back the ERA if she could.
Newt is well...Newt.

I dunno...I actually kinda like Santorum. He’s the only one besides Newt who seems to care that iran is developing nuclear weapons. Yes, the economy and debt sucks but it will be nothing compared to a nuclear armed Iran.

There are only a few candidates that I will not vote for any reason in the general election. Romney is one of them. His refusal to admit Romneycare was a stupid idea makes me believe he will not sign onto a repeal of Obamacare, regardless of what he says now. In fact, I suspect the minute he gets the nomination, he’ll start hedging, edging towards the mushy middle... “oh Obamacare has some good points, can’t throw out the baby with the bathwater”.

As far as the world ending if Obama wins again, I disagree. I believe we’d be in the exact same place right now if RINO John McCain had won. For one thing, we would have had full-blown amnesty by now, as that was one of McCain’s pet projects. Backed enthusiastically by the RINOs in Congress, it would have passed easily. Also, while we would not have had Obamacare, we probably would have gotten some further incremental healthcare law, which would be much harder to eliminate than Obamacare. At present, we have a pretty good chance of tossing out Obamacare altogether. Either the Supreme Court tosses it, or we get a conservative President and take the Senate in 2012, and toss it that way.

There may not have been the huge and reckless spending which Obama and the Dems have authored, but money would have been spent, there’s no doubt about that. McCain was an enthusiastic bailout backer. There would be no Tea Party, or if there was a Tea Party, it certainly wouldn’t be as large or as powerful as it is today. Almost certainly you would still have Speaker Nancy Pelosi today, if John McCain was President. For me, no more votes for RINOs, because they’re just as bad as Democrats.

“Only slightly less decrepit than under four years of a fascist RINO.”

That’s either giving too much credit to Romney, or not enough to Zero.

Romney is nowhere on my list, but to say they are one and the same is insane.

To know that not voting for Romney gives us 4 more of Obama, and thus accelerating the destruction of this country, is no different than waving the white flag and saying you surrender.

I prefer to go down swinging at every step of the way.

Take a close look at these numbers:

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 78 - LIBERAL
Antonin Scalia, 75 - CENTER RIGHT
Anthony Kennedy, 74 - LIBERAL
Stephen Breyer, 72 - LIBERAL
Clarence Thomas, 63 - CONSERVATIVE
Samuel Alito, 61 - CENTER RIGHT
Sonia Sotomayor, 57 - LIBERAL
John Roberts, 56 - CONSERVATIVE
Elena Kagan, 51 - FAR FAR LEFT

I repeat. If Ø is re-elected, the United States of America will not survive. Period.

ABO, 2010!

Campaigning for the Senate in 1994, Romney said he favored strong gun laws and did not “line up with the NRA.” He signed up for “lifetime membership” of the NRA in August 2006 while pondering a presidential run, praising the group for “doing good things” and “supporting the right to bear arms.”

I have a lot of respect for Santorum. He takes a lot of flack but sticks to his guns anyway. He is unapologetic about being against abortion in ALL instances, even rape, because if the rapist won’t face the death penalty, why should the baby?

His refusal to admit Romneycare was a stupid idea

You are on to something here. This has also been troubling me.

Romney tries to cloak this in the 10th Amendment. He would be better off admitting that Romneycare was an idea that didn't work, and should be repealed, just like he "says" he'll do to Obamacare.

Exactly right. If Obozo get’s re-elected, there’s a real chance he’ll have the opportunity to put another insane leftist (like Sotomayor and Kagan) on the USSC. That will give the commies a majority. Then, we will surely witness the destruction of this nation.

Put down the bong, and quit deluding yourself.

America will endure fascism regardless of which party is in power.

The Founders warned our predecessors about the dangers of political factions; unfortunately, their successors (all the way to the present) dismissed their advice.

Well, for me, that’s why I won’t vote for Romney. He has taken so many positions on every issue, I don’t believe a word he says. I think he’s a big government liberal, who wants me to think he’s a conservative. Did you push for a socialist takeover of the healthcare industry while Governor of Massachusetts? Yes. Was that a mistake??? Man, Mitt Romney, if you can’t bring yourself to admit the obvious... you don’t deserve my vote.

In the primaries I’d never vote for Romney the chameleon, but in the general I’d vote for a can of asparagus over Hussein if it were the Republican nominee. The balance of the Supreme Court alone is just too important to not vote for whoever the Republicans nominate.

Romney isn’t going to be the nominee anyway. I think the most likely ticket is Perry/Rubio.

Check the numbers again. There’s a very real possibility that the occupant of the white house could appoint FOUR OR MORE Supreme Court Justices before 2016. That would mean, as they say, the whole shootin’ match.

Pledges like this are what SOCIALIST VICTORIES are made of.

I don't think I will ever vote for Romney. That's just what the Republican establishment wants. At least we should keep telling them that we wont vote for Romney.

But even if I do (and we'd be talking major "hold your nose"), not enough others will. Romney running is the only way I think Obama can win re-election.

If the GOP nominates Romney, they deserve to lose...

Politicians say things all over the spectrum, including whichever ones you support. How about Perry supporting algore?

You can choose whomever you want, but I expect there will be a republican House and Senate, and I want the pres to sign the legislation because I expect it to be dominated by the tea party. I also expect the congress will approve the supreme court justices we all want and expect a republican to nominate.

We’re only in the early stages, stop stomping your foot, and wipe the spittle from your mouth.

Four more years of BHO and I truly believe we are screwed as a world leader. I lived the Europe and I see European polices everywhere. How many European Microsoft's and Apples are there... none. We need to roll back all those regulations and the agencies that cropped up in last 3 or 4 years.

I'm not a Romney fan (but still undecided on a GOP choice), but I really doubt the above. A President Romney will still need to work with Conservatives activists and leaders, including Senators like Demint and Toomey, in an environment dominated by groups like the Tea Party. If he wants to be a success, have a second term and a legacy, he won't be able to afford to move outside a fairly inflexible set of constraints defined by the Conservative Wing of the GOP.

The next two Presidential terms will likely see the retirement or death of Scalia (solid Originalist), Kennedy (moderate/swing) and Ginsburg (solid statist). Even if there's a chance that a President Romney would appoint Liberals to their positions, that chance is MUCH less than the absolute certainty that President Obama will.

On that alone, if he gets the nomination he'll definitely get my vote.
