Santorum calls Romney a true conservative”
Did I just hear a bubble burst?
Uh, no. Why? Even FR was pro-Romney in 2008.
Played, hell politics is politics, rush and Levin both supported Willard over McCain, the loser, then they both tried to get McCain elected. There is nothing in this but another noot attack.
Do you have a shirt term memory issue ?
In 2008 ,
We all were trying to Stop McCain !
So was Rick !
Can we stop trying to destroy our only options left to fight the Marxist !
You Rick haters are getting desperate !
Can you imagine how poor Sarah Palin felt, having to carry his water as running-mate?
Newt has GOT to get his campaign going!
I’m stickin with Rick. If we can overlook some far more serious failings on the part of Gingrich, we can definitely overlook a strategic endorsement.
For that matter, the same people throwing a little tantrum about it would throw the exact same tantrum if he had endorsed McCain (who is himself backing Romney this time)
My congressman has offered a weak endorsement of Romney this time. I don’t like it but he’s a freshman facing some serious party pressure.
I even gave money to mittens in '08.
The thought of mcpain made my stomach hurt, but I voted for him when he got the nomination.
To go back and try to use the plaudits that Rick used to promote mittens over mcpain is really grasping at straws.
But how many of us joined Newt Gingrich in THIS endorsement?
The special election for the 23rd Congressional District is an important test leading up to the mid-term 2010 elections. Our best chance to put responsible and principled leaders in Washington starts here, with Dede Scozzafava.
Newt has GOT to get his campaign going!
And Santorum will say similar things in 2012 if Romney wins the nomination: the bottom line is Obama must be defeated.
This is all they got? I would back Romney over McCain too. I guess the pro Romney forces are saying, “Don’t trust anyone who would support Romney, ever”.
Knowing your history, there is little to no chance that you will agree with me, which is not my purpose. But now that you are so convinced that Santorum will be the savior, of all that is pure and conservative, give just a few reasons why you think that Santorum WILL save this country.
By saying that, I mean, I need a list of exactly what plan or plans, that Santorum has in place that will fix this mess. Do you really know? I am not looking for quotes from his rather boring speeches or debate responses. I am looking for detailed list of his planned approach with documented solutions, if he is elected President. In other words, make it exactly the same thing that Speaker Gingrich has already provided for us, in great detail.
(Take your time, because you will be doing a whole lot of fruitless searching.)
And if you pay attention....2008 was BEFORE the TARP bailout and Obamacare and 15 TRILLION dollars of wasteful spending.
End of story
Just out of curiosity who are you for???
Newt is a visionary, and was my hero back when the we took back the house after 40 years.
But, I see him losing the female vote badly should he be our nominee. He is damaged goods, and IMO has almost no chance against Obama.
Rick has a chance, and is our best option.
Wow. The Newt supporters sure are terrified by Santorum since their dream candidate has lost every primary but SC.
BTW, Newt is not a Conservative, he just talks like one to get elected. And he still has more baggage than the cargo hold on the Costa Concordia.
Santorum didn’t say he was holding his nose and supporting Romney or that Romney was the lesser of the evils. He said that Romney was a “true conservative.”
Santorum was either duped or he lied. There are two types of people who were duped by Romney in ‘08. Those of us who are man enough to admit it, and Santorum, who isn’t.
So what? Santorum endorsed pro-abortion liberal Arlen Specter over conservative pro-life Pat Toomey in 2006. It wasnt the first time he endorsed Specter - Santorum also endorsed Arlen Specter early in his 1996 Presidential run.
In other words, you can’t defend your support of Santorum.
You see? I told you so..........you really can’t.
And your little, cheap shot, personal attack is quite humorous. Especially the part where you called me a “little boy”.
Mouthing childish threats from behind your keyboard is not what I would call “manly” mature behavior. Especially towards someone who risked his life in combat to give you the right to do so.
Come on, man!
How can you make a recommendation and say, "I'm holding my nose"?
Just not going to waste my time with mittbots.
In their mad scramble to pick the “perfect conservative”, Romney slips in through the back door like McCain did.
The MSM will disassemble Santorum like a dime store toy. And the Obama machine can't believe their stroke of luck, in this latest panic driven turn in the GOP primary.
I’ve never made any secret of my presidential preferences. I supported Sarah Palin for president from the time of the 2008 election until she announced that she wasn’t not going to run nearly 3 years later.
After her Oct. 5 announcement, I spent nearly two weeks researching and comparing the records of all the GOP candidates who were in the race at the time. My conclusion was that Newt, for all his negatives, was still the only Reagan conservative of the bunch, and I’ve been supporting him ever since.
I rejected Santorum on the basis of his love for earmarks and other unchecked federal spending, as well as his rejection of the principle of liberty guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
If you can’t defend your advocacy of Santorum, it doesn’t matter whether you have to defend it to a Mittwit, a Ronulan or a Newtonian. You can either defend it or you can’t. Saying you don’t want to is just a cop out.
President Bush personally asked Santorum to endorse Specter, in exchange for Specter promising to push through Roberts and Alito. How many Republicans asked Newt to endorse Scozzafava? And Pat Toomey was one of only 8 Republicans to vote to repeal DADT - joining Snowe and Collins. Some "conservative".
We now know that the author of this article, Andrew Kaczynski, is part of the Romney Slime machine. They will do anything to start a conservative buzz questioning anything about one of their opponents.
And so far conservatives have been blind enough to buy it. They thought it was the other 7 candidates attacking each other...but it turns out that much of it was either egged on by Romney or originated with him overtly or covertly.
Now we know how he operates.
Was it accidental that the ABC interview with a Gingrich ex-wife happened just before a primary in which Romney only true opponent was Gingrich? Was it coincidence that there was a connection between the Cain bimbo charges and Romney?
Was no McCain advocate either; but he did recognize the evil in Putin; whereas, GW either did not; or thought better to not speak of it publicly. Instead; President Bush saw 'kind eyes'? Or offered somesuch/similar; disconnection with reality when it came to what we know was and still is; 'evil walking'.
Exactly right. And if Santorum can change his mind and change his views from the past, Romney will use the same argument about himself. Santorum supported Specter who supported obamacare. At this point, Newt is probably our best shot unless someone else jumps in at a brokered convention.
She is a great woman in regards to her personal life, but just not a good political candidate in my opinion. But this is all history and no longer matters. This latest Lemming stampede to Santorum is what is most troubling. For those of us who do the research, and know the details, are left puzzled as to why these blind Santorum supporters are so easily swayed.
What would Putin do to a President Gingrich? Bada Bing
Let’s look past his rather lame remarks on the conversion by campaign fire of Mitt Romney...
to his comments on Huckabee.
Santorum says Huckabee is a great conservative but — but he’s weak on national defense. If he were running for governor of the US, Rick says, that’d be fine, but not president. Say what? Does this mean Rick’s comfortable with Huck’s domestic and social agenda?
I continue to have my doubts about Rick Santorum, but then, I do not agree with him that people grow up fast on the campaign trail.
I cannot fault anyone for choosing Romney over McCain in 2008.
Once again, the “conservative” base is a ship of FOOLS. The GOP Titanic. And the Iceburg is named Rick “me too” Santorum.
I suggest conservatives fall in behind Santorum rather than taking shots at him that just help Romney. Newt will NEVER, NEVER win the nomination. Your choice is Santorum or Romney. It is up to you.
Forget about trashing your opponent. Especially if your opponent is someone you've promoted in the past. It will only come back to bite you in the Biden.
Instead, focus on Conservatism. Focus on freedom. Focus on what you want to do as President to make America great again.
Also, forget about patting yourself on the back for all the wonderful legislation you authored, co-authored, helped push through, etc.
To us (at least to me), "passing legislation" means bigger government.
Your head will explode from all the nice things Romney will be forced to say about Santorum after Santorum wins the nomination.
Be sure to capture it on tape and e-mail it to me.
I mean, you won't be around to collect the 10,000 dollars anyway so......
Interesting question, what would Putin do to ____.
Let’s compare the next imminent struggle we face, to the last fight for civilization. Putin is Stalin, who was less of a threat than Hitler and against the Nazis.
Putin, even with his horns and hooves and tail, hates the Islamists and recognizes the danger they present.
There are but two candidates with the fortitude and common sense to see the threat of Islam and they are Gingrich and Santorum.
Putin would not even want to sit down with anybody else, and unfortunately we are going to need his cooperation in the next war.
Following Duncan Hunter’s dropping out of the 2008 race, I decided Mitt was the best candidate remaining, and donated.
That was before I came to conclude, that it was Romney’s machine which sabotaged Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, and was the problem in the GOP.
Romney does not seek to do what is right. Romney seeks the presidency as an end. I no longer trust the man.
Ever think maybe Santorum in his own way, traveled that same decision loop about Romney?
How about we stop tearing down Santorum. After all, that helps who exactly?...
Barack Obama, or Mitt Romney. Take your pick.
2007/2008 wasn’t exactly a prime choice of Conservative options, just like now. At the same time and before this was going on, Newt was gaga over Rudy- not much different than Romney on the issues.
Just one example.
Maybe we can focus on what issues they bring to the role of Commander in Chief of the US Armed Forces and not stuff like this which isn’t part of the Constitutionally mandated role in the job.
The way I see it, we have two halfway decent options, Newt or Santorum. The other two are completely out of the question. So why would we help destroy either Newt or Santorum? Let’s deal with cleaning the overt RINOs out.
[I mean, you won’t be around to collect the 10,000 dollars anyway so......]
Are you threatening me?
I wouldn't and didn't. To compress it into a nutshell, I weighed Romney's facility in saying where he stands on abortion, against McCain's facility in saying what the North Vietnamese wanted him to say in exchange for a first-class ticket home. Romney found it easy to deliver the lines; McCain did not.
Romney, who never wore the uniform, and who has endorsed the slaughter of infants, finds it easy to say what people want to hear: I'm conservative, I'm pro-life, I'm pro-2A.
McCain was going slowly into senile dementia, but he still hasn't ever sunk as low as Mitt Romney.
