How can any right thinking Christian, conservative or tea party supporter justify voting for Romney?

Posted on 01/31/2012 5:31:12 PM PST by Jim Robinson

How can any right thinking Christian, conservative or tea party supporter justify voting for Romney?

Romney is an empty suit. A complete fraud. Worse, he's anti-tea party, anti-conservative, anti-liberty! He has absolutely zero conservative accomplishments to his name. His ONLY accomplishments in government are liberal, ie, tax payer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun control, RomneyCare, mandates, etc. He is Obama-lite.

Are these voters uninformed, terrified, brainwashed, or just plain nuts?

The average 'conservative' out there hasn't a clue about any candidate this early on. They look around, think they see who GOP voters are going for (Romney) as foretold by liberal media - and they think, 'OK, I'll go vote for Romney' - not knowing one damned thing about the man prior to pulling the lever.

Why? Because a huge percentage of them never get on the internet and go to a conservative website. They simply buy into whatever bits and piece they see on TV - i.e., 'Romney is the favored GOP candidate.'

Well I hope and pray people wake up. If they don’t we will be faced with voting for Romney or staying home. Stay home and you elect Obama by a landslide. What is worse?

Being from Kalifornia, my vote won’t matter any way. But at some point, it seems to me, as long as we can hold the House and maybe take the Senate, I would rather have 4 more years of Obama instead of a ‘Republican’ who will take the country in much the same leftist direction.

At least Romney strikes me as being a decent human being.

We apparently aren't even looking at the same candidate. I've never seen anything so slimy on the national stage as Romney. I'd rather have Gingrich on the couch with pelosi than Romney in the WH with moroni.

I can’t. His liberal policies are enough of a reason not to vote for him. But I have seen firsthand what a loathsome, malicious, cutthroat, wicked person he is. I will NEVER vote for him, and I wish I could figure out why so many people have gone crazy.

“How can any right thinking Christian, conservative or tea party supporter justify voting for Romney?”

They’ll use the same old argument; “He’s better than Obama” without offering a shred of evidence to back up that dubious claim.

I suspect that by late October, there will be a strong Romney push right here on FR. You and the mods will be quite busy.

Happy hunting.

Sheep in the GOP have been convinced that Romney is electable and a conservative is not. It’s a damned shame. There is about to be an anti-conservative cabal in the GOP and its not going to be pretty.

unfortunately, half the voters that show up for these things are neither Christian, conservative, nor teaparty. And the Christians, conservatives, and tea party are not putting much effort into this race. Laid back attitude.

Naturally, there are some who are working their tails off and they have our thanks!

GO NEVADA! GO COLORADO! GO MINNESOTA!

This race is just beginning!

...Newt needs to drop out so Santorum can beat Romney.

However, if he does so, the Romney and his jackals will turn their attention to Santorum. Glenn Beck will pick apart his Senate voting record and brand him a "progressive." Ann Coulter will question his loyalty by noting that some of his Italian relatives are Communists. And Bay Buchanan will argue that Romney, not Santorum, is the true conservative.

This is what happens when you have a press that attacks a decent person every day and lifts up an evil one to accomplish their own agenda. Many of our own pundants did not know the truth nor even try to find out. Some of them knew better but they had an agenda. We were abandoned and shoved out of the way.

Lots of crossover “Republicans” in Florida who voted for Obama last time (and Hillary during the 2008 Dem primary) came into the GOP, voted in the primary and voted for Mittens this time.

Jim,

The RINOmney supporters LIE to themselves to justify their vote.

They tell themselves he is now a conservative
They confuse talk with conviction
They justify their support by rationalizing
They lie to themselves that RINOmney personally created jobs
They say he has taken a “firm conservative position”

All of it flies in the face of every shred of actual evidence outside just talk.

If they get RINOmney against Obama, it will be without my help in any way and without my vote.

I refuse to get involved in judging a beauty contest between two skunks to determine which smells less than the other.

RINOmney supporters will talk long and hard about how RINOmney stinks far less than Zero.

In the end, they are both skunks.

They will tell us that RINOmney is the “best we can do”, as if that should make me accept his stench.
I won’t.

They will try to guilt us into supporting the liberal skunk RINOmney, saying the Supreme Court hangs in the balance.
They said the same thing about the McCain skunk.

They ignore that RINOmney, as governor, appointed liberal DEMONcrats as judges. He didn’t have to. He liked doing it.

Newt and Santorum have time. I don’t understand why they don’t force RINOmney out of the race before they turn on each other.

If RINOmney wins the whole thing, he will join Ford, Bush, Dole and McCain as lousy picks.

Sigh. They have set themselves up to fail again, but without the help of so many of us. And they will open a third party run...

BTW, Rubio sucks.

I didn’t have a dog in the Florida race. That said, I felt the exact same way most FReepers feel now when Governor Perry was rejected. I thought most FReepers had gone over the edge. Here we had a strong Christian, a handsome gentleman, married once, a patriot who served his country, a respected sitting governor, a gun enthusiast, an Eagle Scout, tough on immigration and endorsed by Sheriff Joe. I couldn’t believe the hate speak going on here. I think we’ve all been set up.

Newt lost because Romney attacked him for not being a conservative!

Because Newt worked for freddie mac, went after capitalism and pushed the dream act in order to pander to Hispanics but left it to Santorum to attack Romneycare. You know...the biggest reason why we hate Romney so much!

I don’t know what Newt was thinking.

You’re exactly right. I hold up Mark Levin and Sarah Palin as two of the few who actively stood up for Newt and—especially in Mark’s case-—went after Romney. The others, not so much.

Nevada and Maine is next. I’m already in Maine. Believe me I know how bad Romney is. He is a fake.

Newt has thousands of hours of videos where he does what he does best - talk policy. I wish Newt would do that in his ads and avoid whining about Romney’s negative ads.

Newt should let the Super PACS go tear apart Romney with the same style negative ads that Romney’s making against Newt.

Newt should let the internet, Talk Radio and Super PACs expose Romney as the fraud he is and he should spend time talking about himself and how he plans for America’s future.

I also think Newt should be making some improvements on those running his campaign. He should hire some Freepers.
