Lets say that Mitt Romney gets the nomination for the GOP, he runs for president in 2012. Romney kind of has this reputation of being a check pants republican, country club republican, a main stream republican, not really a tea party candidate. So do you for see a situation in 2012 where tea party voters actually stay out of the election because they are not motivated by Mitt Romney.
Well it would be tragic if they stayed out because Mitt Romney may not be their first choice, but Mitt Romney every day of the week and twice on Sunday is going to be a much more effective president for issues that they care about than Barack Obama and I think sometimes there is this anxiety within the Republican Party of who is the perfect candidate. The answer is there isnt one. And so what you find is you have to decide who can survive the process and whoever that is, and if it is Mitt Romney, then I think republicans, conservatives and tea party need to get behind him and say he may not be our first choice but between you and 0bama, I'll vote 40 times to help get you elected.
Count me out. Darn right he’s not one of my favorites. Never for the Mountain Meadow Massacre.
I don’t agree with Huckabee and will not vote for Romney if he gets the nomination.
That being said, to say he the tea party should vote for whoever gets the GOP nomination even if its Mitt is not that scandalous.
Ain’t going to happen Huck, we brought into that with Bush, then you tried McCain and now Romney. Sorry pal no more RINOs!!!
Nope. Stick with your variety show, Huck.
If Romney gets the nomination, who will you vote for in the general election?
That is the funniest and most ludicrous thing I have ever heard.
Yes it is scandalous.
The TEA Party is not a “Republican” thing. It does not support whoever the nominee is unless they agree with that nominee, at least on the basics, and Romney is NOT that guy
If Romney gets the nomination I will not be voting for President in the GE but will still vote in the down-ballot races.
No, it will not matter who his VP pick is, just like it did not matter who McCain picked I didn’t vote for THAT liberal sack of s**t either.
I will NOT be forced to play the “at least he’s not as bad as the other liberal” game.
FUMH!! FUMR!! NO WAY, JOSE!!
Huck’s getting nuttier in his old age.
Wasn’t that sometime in the 1850s? What does it have to do w/ Romney?
I feel a lot like a sheep. Just now I’m being herded, later on I’ll be shorn.
He was a loser last time. He is a loser this time.
Trolling for Romney on this pro-life grassroots conservative site will get your account zotted. NO ROMNEY!! NOT ON MY WATCH!!
I don’t see Romney getting the nomination no matter how badly the MSM wants it.
