If you help to elect Romney you’re not a conservative. I fail to see your logic.

Ditto on the mute here too. Oh my, my, my. I loathe Mittens. C’mon Newt. Pull out the big guns (metaphorically speaking) and go after Mittens. Please, please, please. Let Super Tuesday be the day of reckoning for the Mitten man.

THANK-YOU for raising your children to save our country!!!! I have no
children and the respect I have for all of you for our next generation is more than words can express. I believe that as hard as we have all tried
It is up to all of your children to save our country, they have such an
enormous responsibility that we have left to them. I pray they will learn
our history from their parents and know our founding fathers and their
vision.

I applaud you for taking the long-term view. I too will support anyone but Obama for that very reason, all it will take is one more liberal on the SCOTUS and our last check-and-balance against runaway socialism will be in jeopardy.

I look at it this way: George W Bush told us he was a “compassionate conservative” and certainly did some things that veered very far from conservative principles. Yet he appointed Justice Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts, two outstanding jurists who understand their role in protecting America.

For me, preventing Obama from appointing another Sotomayor or Kagan is all the reason I need to vote for the GOP candidate. Even a weak conservative President will do more to protect the Republic than any liberal democrat will.

Romney is giving a decent conservative free market attack on Obama. That is just a fact.

He can do that and often does........the problem is, I simply don't believe a damn thing Romney says.

This is not a religion comment, I just don't know how else to phrase it....I see no "soul" in Romney, no core conviction, just a used car salesman. I can't sign on to that.

CNN has already begun trashing Mitt for all his money and bank accounts in Europe.

No! It can't be .... CNN wants Mitt to run against Zero.

It isn't because they've got a boatload of talking points against Mitt, can it?

As disappointed as I am in the result of this primary, I will say that Romney just gave a strong victory speech.

Same for me....very disappointed...can't stand it actually! He did give a good speech though, so CNN reacted negatively. Newt up next!!

At the start of the next debate when Newt is asked the first question he needs to ignore the question, pivot to Willard the liberal and say.

“You won Florida by carpetbombing the state with lies about me. Probably the biggest lie was during the debates when you said over and over, like a broken record, that I had to resign my position as speaker of the house in disgrace. I tried to be a gentleman and now lower myself to your school yard rants and insults. But that’s not possible any longer. So Governor Romney let me be the first to say..........

“WHAT’S DISGRACEFUL IS HOW YOU GOVERNED THE STATE OF MASS FOR FOUR LONG YEARS. YOU GOVERNED EXACLY LIKE ANY LIBERAL DEMOCRAT. YOU GAVE THE STATE HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE, AND SOCIALISED MEDICINE, WITH INCLUDED $50 TAXPAYER PAYER FUNDED ABORTIONS. DISGRACEFUL IS THE ONLY WORD I CAN COME UP WITH TO DESCRIBE YOUR LIBERAL, BIG GOVERNMENT POLITICS THAT BANKRUPTED THE STATE OF MASS. YOUR OWE THE PEOPLE OF MASS AN APOLOGY FOR MAKING THEIR LIFE WORSE OFF THAN IT WAS BEFORE YOU TOOK OFFICE”

No more Mr. nice guy for Newt Gingrich. He either calls out this rotten son-of-a-bitch liberal or he loses the nomination to him. Nothing much can be done about the blitz of lying campaign ads, except to run your own. But debates he can control. The exit polls after SC and Florida said the debates were one of the primary factors people used in deciding who to vote for. Newt can not let the lowlife bastard Romney get one up on him again. He’s the better man and needs to prove it.

I will never vote for Williard. It’s a false narrative to say that it’s a vote for Obama. Romney v Obama is equal to Stalin v Putin. Either way you get a commie pig, just one happens to be better dressed.

Ok, a little perspective here. This fight is far from over. We are essentially in Round 4 of a 15 round fight. Romney got in a lucky punch but he is far from having his arm raised. Newt isn't that badly hurt, his cut man is cleaning him up, he's not even breathing hard, and he's going to go the distance. Mitt-Witt is going to end up being bashed, bloodied and knocked down more than a few times, and despite his immense war chest of loot, he can't go the distance.

Bet it all on Newty, I am.

Yeah, but the the “When Mitt Romney Comes to Town” wasn’t a sweet little fairy tale. I’m not here to get into a “but R/G was worse”—there has been ugliness all around.

Reagan showed us that Americans respond to optimism and an upbeat demeanor. Both of these guys need to go positive, run against the LEFT, not just the president. Clearly express a positive vision and PLEASE, no more attacks on private equity, Wall Street or making a profit! The Obama administration and their witch hunt against mortgage backed securities is bad enough.

If the tea party in Florida truly went for Mitt, than this will probably happen all across the country ? Sad.

Do you have a TEA Party registration card? I don't. There are no TEA party card carriers. The TEA Party is being dragged into this by the media and GOP-e because they KNOW none of it can be validated, killing two birds with one stone.

Anyone claiming "Republican" after last week and what is currently being foisted on us can immediately be marked down as "genuine stupid party member". The GOP and DNC are in a race for socialsim. The GOP keeps making left hand turns, the DNC is cashing in marketing the whole race.

According to reports posted on FR, there are no 50 delegates in Florida, but only 25, as the punishment for advancing their primary up to January. There is even talk of proportioning these delegates, as opposed to winner take all. Apparently, all this will be contested, with the outcome not decided until right before the convention.

Sounds as if all this is muddy water in Florida.

Sorry but the only way our GOP masters will ever take us serious is if we let one of the “moderate”leftists they give us take a double digit arsewhupping in the General Election.
I didn’t take a stand with McCain because I could at least respect his service sacrifices. With Romney I see nothing to respect and a helluva lot to disrespect. I won’t compromise this time my vote is exactly that, my vote.

No, the winner gets 50. The original count was 99 but it was cut to 50 as punishment for moving the date up.

I guess there is nothing he can say that will win over the hard-core Mitt haters. Fine, there are always going to be some for any issue/candidate, whatever. I just hope after some cooling off most here won’t stay home in November. We’ll need all the votes.

Ann Romney out with the four sons, one gone ...not a one who has ever served in the military.

The lack of Military involvement with the elites disturbs me too. Of the presidential candidates, I think Huntsman, with his two sons at USNA, was the only candidate with "skin in the game".

And of course Perry was an active duty USAF veteran. Paul was either active duty or reserves USAF, as a physician.

On the Rat side, neither Obama nor Biden served, though I think Biden son(s) may have.

I think a lot of the “I will never vote for ...” talk is emotional.

For one thing, Romney hasn’t secured the nomination.

For another, we have to get rid of Obama.

Romney might be a passive, do nothing good president but he could not in any way, shape or form be as bad as Obama.

I will vote for the Republican nominee.

But there is not a word of the speech Romney just gave which conservatives would disagree with.Are you serious? Everything out that vile man's mouth is an outright lie. I don't have the TV on and will NOT listen to that fraud.

Words are just that, words. Mitt's entire career is one of increasing the power of the State. Mitt's entire career is own service to his own power-lust.

Mitt seeks the office to glorify one thing and only one thing -- Mitt.

Mitt laughs at those who believe in Limited Government and other conservative beliefs.

I cherish our Constitution and believe as William Wallace Stated, that Liberty is the best of all things."

Above is Liberty from government tyranny.

How stupid does someone have to be to listen to those lies? Look at his record and what he said throughout the last 6 years or more. That speech was written and read from a teleprompter. It’s totally not who Mitt is. Anyone stupid enough to fall for a teleprompter speech deserves what they get. It will be without my vote.

Sorry, but Mitt, as proven by his history, is still a Liberal Progressive.

That is how he governed.

He has not repudiated his own liberal actions.

Therefore he is unfit to lead under any circumstances and all of his lying words concerning his current positions cannot be trusted.

There is no trustworthiness in that man, none at all.

Those ignoring this evidence and pretending that he is a valid choice for POTUS are not conservatives, especially those posting on a conservative site like FreeRepublic.

Sarah Palin was just on the Fox News. It looks like she was doing the spot from her home in Wasilla, Alaska. There was a roaring fireplace in the background and Weather Underground tells me it is currently 15.8 degrees in Wasilla. Not exactly cold by their standards but definitely cold enough to light a fire in the fireplace.
