1970s? We like ‘em now.
I’m sorry you don’t see that your little fun facts are ANECDOTAL at best, and that you argumentative style is annoying.
I was thinking the same thing. As soon as BO brought up the free contraceptives crap, I knew he was up to something-it was so out of the blue. That’s his MO. He likes to catch people off guard with a straw dog.
Now, on the other hand. Nothing a conservative says to Dick Gregory is going to play well. The outcome is already determined. Chris Wallace- I’m a little more concerned but anyway, Santorum OR Newt OR Gingrich is more right than wrong and I hope the Holy Spirit will intercede and save them from themselves by Nov!
But Gingrich and Santorum supporters need to stop firing at each other.
And go from there.
I see, so all the things the Newt supporters have said about Rick Santorum was not ?
But Gingrich and Santorum supporters need to stop firing at each other.
Santorum is Bush I in a sweater vest- extremely timid & weak, and is easily flustered and agitated when confronted. Sadly, this does not play well on t.v. He’s already being successfully labeled as a right wing religious fanatic who will take away your contraception. He does not know how to handle the media, and will easily be destroyed by them. His macaca moment is coming.
Newt on the other hand is more conservative than Little Ricky, isn’t afraid to stick it to Obama and the media, and has bold plans to take our country back from the socialists. Yes, he’s had 3 wives- I don’t care. He’s clearly our best chance to win against Obama.
Nonetheless, Rick Santorum is leading nationally, and recent polls in both Michigan and Ohio have him on top in both states.
AND, he has a great chance to turn very blue Pennsylvania to the right side.
We must not ignore the strengths of Santorum just because he isn’t our preferred candidate.
There is no way that Santorum is Bush I. He might have a streak of Reagan Democrat in him, but that puts him in the company of Zell Miller and Ronald Reagan.
As I said, he has an 80% rating from ACU and he did that from a very, very blue state and still managed to win 2 senatorial and two house elections.
Santorum is getting on my nerves recently. Especially his goofy family behind him at CPAC.
“His support of Arlen Specter ... I chalk this up to ‘being a loyal party guy’”
He’s explained his support of Specter. It was in exchange for Specter’s promise to vote for conservative SCOTUS nominees — which he did. Possibly Toomey would’ve done the same thing; I don’t know.
The issue of future SCOTUS appointments is huge in this election. Seems that Santorum and Gingrich would select the best candidates. Paul is a whack job and nobody knows what he’d do. Romney had to meet with a coach to tell him what conservative buzz words to use in speeches and debates, and that says everything we need to know about him. The dolt didn’t even have a clue that saying we should raise the minimum wage wouldn’t sit well with conservatives. That’s basic for a conservative; how could he not know that?
If I wanted your worthless opinion, I would ask for it. Nice of you to put words in my mouth.
Either way, you do not make the rules around here.
Glad I don’t live in your stupid state.
The words of a true thinker.........albeit better than the vile, irrational ones you posted yesterday....
If I had any authority on FR (trust me, I don't), I would ban or suspend anyone who implied that having Obama destroy this country for four more years would be better than ANY of the four remaining candidates.......and that includes the insane Ron Paul.
If you truly understood the damage this Marxist regime is doing, no matter how much you hated Republicans, you would never say such a thing.
However, I have no doubt that you'll continue posting that you prefer 'the evil we know'.....Barack Hussein Obama.
And you'll still fantasize that you're a conservative......
Correction. In your post #62, you said it would be "better" to have Obama (the 'official evil').
It shows a complete lack of knowledge of the unparalleled Marxist evil going on under this regime if you prefer him over ANY of the four remaining candidates.
You used the word "BETTER." I didn't put anything in your mouth. It was all you, mad. ALL you.
I understand completely what the Obama regime is doing; I always have.
What I’m saying is there is no difference between 0 and Romney, and Santorum is aiding and abetting Romney.
Gingrich is the only chance we’ve got.
RINOs are worse than actual Democrats. Traitors are worse than actual enemies. Ever consider that POV??
Right, because if the Repuke nominee is Romney or any RINO like him, then the fight is lost. Then this country is done for.
And we will all have our own worthless party to blame.
Saying that there is NO difference between Romney, Santorum and Obama is NONSENSE.
Do your homework. Research Marxism, Saul Alinsky, Obama's absolute trampling of and scoffing at the Constitution, his abuse of power, his Keynsian economic garbage, his lawlessness, his theft, his hatred of everything American, his pro-Muslim sympathies, his destruction of our relationship with our allies, his impotence in the face of the dangers our enemies pose, his hatred of Christianity, his pro-infanticide, Chicago thuggery.......
Then get back to me and try to say with a straight face that Obama is "BETTER" than Santorum.
YOU just said that Obama would be "BETTER" than Romney or Santorum.
I'm sorry, but that's pathetically funny. Far more pathetic, but still amazingly, stunningly funny.....
Yes he is liberal. He is a fiscal liberal. Santorum is NOT a small government conservative by any means. He is also a union shill.
Not as pathetic as your mother...
Anyway, I never said I was a Repuke, again, putting words in my mouth.
I am conservative, Romney and Santorum are leftists.
There is no difference between them. They are all Marxists and statists of some kind. All that matters is that they are not conservative.
I already know my facts. Oh, and how did Dubya work out for us?? He wasn’t so conservative after all...
I didn’t say Obama is better than Santorum, I said I it would be better to have Obama, the official evil, in office than a RINO, evil in disguise, mucking up the party and pushing back any chances conservatives have.
Anyway, I never said I was a Repuke, again, putting words in my mouth
Wow. I've run across freepers who couldn't understand what others wrote, but you're the very first you can't even read and understand what YOU write.
Remarkable. You said "OUR OWN PARTY"....that means you are claiming to be a Republican.
Oh yeah......and this....
Not even clever for a twelve year old. How old are you........eleven?? LOL!
And I repeat that, had I any authority on this forum, you as a NEWBIE, would be banned for saying it would be BETTER to have Obama than Santorum.
Good bye, newb. See you later......if you survive the Viking Kitties' wrath.
I’m a lot older than you, boy.
Well, thank God you don’t. Otherwise the forum would be a ghost town.
You know you’re wrong, that’s why you’re backing off finally.
btw, Mom's are usually not 'boys.' Skipped biology class, eh?
Once again, good luck avoiding the ZOT. Heaven knows, you've already earned it. Eventually your facade will fall, and you'll be gone, and I'll still be here discussing conservatism with genuine conservatives as I was 10 years before you signed on.
I know you drop the name "Gingrich" to keep from being tossed out on your keyster, but it isn't wise to actually state in black and white that you think having Obama is "better" than having someone like Santorum as President.
Obama is raping our military. He hates our soldiers. He is violently anti-American. He can't wait to kill more innocent babies, destroy families, and rid this country of faith and morality.
And having him is not BETTER than anything we've ever suffered in this great Republic.
He is killing this country, and you don't seem to care.
Once again, good luck avoiding being banned.
Since when are Santorum and Romney conservatives??
Santorum is good on the social issues, but bad on the fiscal ones. He’s pro-union, big tax-and-spender, IOW, he can’t make up his mind.
I am very pro-life and pro-family, and so is Gingrich, who is also fiscally conservative.
Santorum is hardly conservative, except for being pro-life.
Banned?? In you dreams.
Not wise to make ASSumptions about people you don’t know.
And once again, good luck in surviving on a conservative forum while espousing the evil Obama over any Republican.
It's in black and white. NO big deal to have the country completely destroyed.
If I didn't know better, I'd swear you were posting at DU.
You are now on record as PREFERRING another Sotomayor or Kagan over any conservative Justice that Santorum would select.
So not only do you PREFER the 'officially evil' Obama's military hatred, violation of religious freedom, and all out war on human life, old and young, but you PREFER another sick, leftist SC Justice over a conservative one.
Yep. You sure are a conservative, madmaximus. Indeed you are.....
assumptions is an obscenity?? That’s news to me.
You really like making stuff up, don’t you??
Again, why do you insist on putting words in my mouth??
I didn’t say any Republican, I said Romney, Santorum or other RINOS. I already said I support Gingrich or any other conservative.
Can you even read??
The words came off your finger tips, boy. I didn't make anything up.
I've decided that you're not bright enough to be a Gingrich supporter. They're smart conservatives who love the country, and you don't seem to be any of those things (plus, you're unbelieveably dishonest and vapid).
I think you're either a closet Paulite, or a DU troll. Nothing you say fits what a conservative would say.
So begone troll. There's work to be done, and you're clearly not going to do it.
Enjoy your "Having Obama is better" fantasy. YOUR words. Not my putting them in your mouth.
Sooner or later you may learn that words mean things, and when you say "Having Obama is better" there are going to be a lot of bright people who think you're either nuts, or a troll........or both.
Perhaps at some point, you can defend why Obama's choice for a SC Justice is "better" than Rick Santorum's would be. I think a lot of us would love to know the "logic" behind that.
I know that's what you've said. That's your cover.
NO Gingrich supporter prefers Obama to Santorum. Not one. They may not like Santorum, or even hate him, but not a single one of them thinks that Obama is "better" than Rick is. Not one.
Can you even read??
Yes. Very well, thank you.
That's why I'm still here. Because I can read what you've said, and that includes that "having Obama is better than having Santorum" as President.
It's because I can read and think that I know you're a phony and won't let your little "I'm a conservative" charade go without being challenged.
You could end this by taking back your stupid words, you know? You could say that you don't really mean the stupid words you posted.
Then we could both let this thing go.
But as long as you insist that having Obama is better, you'll get a fight from actual conservatives. (That would be me).
You are so full of crap. And there you go again, twisting my own words for your own BS.
I don’t owe you a god dang thing. You can KMA, cuz I really don’t give a crap what you think.
Well, boy, I’ve decided that you’re not bright enough to be a conservative. You’re unbelievably dishonest, cowardly and stupid.
You’re the one acting trollish, so you can go take a hike.
Two surprises in this election cycle. (1) That Santorum is “in the running” to a degree, and (2) Many on our forum strongly dislike “Saint Rick.” I suppose I have been hoodwinked to a degree, for I don’t think Rick is as fiscally conservative as I would have liked, but honestly who else is there? The apple has already dropped on Newton’s head.
“I see, so all the things the Newt supporters have said about Rick Santorum was not ?”
Huh? Did I say they ‘was’ not?
There is a lot of opportunity to learn to think and speak if you look for it.
Still have to count the votes of some 40 plus states, oh, and someone needs to get to 1100 plus delegates, the leader currently has how many?
“Now the shoe is on the other foot, live with it.”
I’m living with it just fine, whatever ‘it’ is. You on the other hand seem to be offended by people with differing opinions.
How’s this: I think everything you think is really stupid.
There, does the fact that someone you’ve never met says such a thing really bother you?
This is too easy.
Agree! Santorum will never be the nominee. Have been reading a lot of blogs, news sites and tweets and there are a lot of conservatives that will not support RS
“I am very pro-life and pro-family, and so is Gingrich, who is also fiscally conservative.”
So why is Santorum for the Ryan plan, the plan that Newt denounced as right wing engineering?
Therefore, I will conclude this 'discussion' with you, mad one, using words befitting your intellectual and emotional level......
Your mother wears combat boots.
Have a great life. :)
