I just don’t see Romney like that.....I think we need intelligent businessmen in the WH to restore economy....He’s no where near what that devil is doing to this country......

Romney has a power-lust for the highest office. Romney has no concern over the cancer of Socialism that is being pushed at all levels of government.

Being a businessman is 100% irrelevant to the problem at hand. Most billionaire businessmen see government as a solution.

Romney sees government as the solution to "big" problems, as a positive force for good.

Unlike Romney, our Founders viewed government as a necessary EVIL.

Romney would do absolutely nothing to reduce the size or scope of government

We need someone in office who will view government as EVIL. We need someone in office who will vigorous lead the effort to roll back government and eliminate entire departments.

For our Republic to survive, large numbers of State, local and Federal Parasites must lose their taxpayer paid jobs.

It is astounding to me that people think that Mitt would be better than Obama. With either the endpoint is exactly the same -- a socialist hell. The only thing Mitt would do is delay the inevitable.

If we can't nominate true leaders who will slay big government, then maybe it's best to hope the system collapses soon. At least then we can start to rebuild a Constitutional Republic.

I attended a Tea Party meeting last night. Most everyone was resigned to the belief that the cardboard man would be the candidate. :

I cannot pull the lever for him as a former Mass resident I know what a Socialist Kabutz the State is and it pains me. I have things going on back their that If I explained the level of Bureaucracy I and others are dealing with it would border on fiction. Romney didn't stop it, if anything he added to it.

My Motus Operundi this time around is to send the EGOP my message which is this...

“As bad as it would be, believe it or not, there are worse things than four more years of Obama. Such as: “Conservatives” with absolutely no principles left.”

Haven’t we already had that for decades? So-called conservatives come to Washington, quickly get seduced by the power trip, and then abandon principles and become part of the system that provides them a good life. This creates a conflict of interest wherein their votes perpetuate their place in the DC machine.

Romney would get crushed. He’s establishment as it gets, and was their pick in 2008. His “business” was about moving around money. He’s shown no record of getting independent votes in the open primaries. He didn’t get them against McCain, nor against Santorum.

Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban

July 08, 2004

Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns.

"Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts," Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1..."These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people."

"Mitt is the only candidate who is going to beat 0bama....Santorum doesn’t have a chance....Though not perfect, I feel good about him fixing the ecomony/gas and restoring America....And who knows, maybe it’ll be Romney/Rubio(:"

Would you care to explain how you think Romney could beat Obama when he said the other day that he will NOT attack Obama? Willard has NO CLUE of what we are up against...he's said it before, he thinks Obama is a nice guy who's misguided. And anyone who believes a word out of Willard's mouth is easily duped.

Ted really needs to say why, despite Romney's well known anti 2nd Amendment stance, he is still endorsing him. Ted OWES us that answer.

Your lack of political acumen is only matched by your tone-deafness of posting crap like this on FreeRepublic, a conservative web-site.

Mitt has been unable to crack 40% this whole primary season, has spent millions of dollars attacking the other candidates, has staked out moderate positions.

His record as Governor of MA, a progressive liberal record, has been hardly talked about except on conservative websites because IF he becomes nominee, Obama and his crew the MSM, will play it 24/7 to completely demoralize the base and dampen turn-out.

This is why the MSM has done next to nothing on attacking Mitt: They know who will be the easiest to beat.

I agree with a lot of your points about government but the sad reality is that in this era of entitlements, a totally corrupt media, government largesse, and a dumbed down populace, the chances of electing true leaders who will slay big government is nil, at least until the big economic crash occurs. That event will re-orient everyone’s priorities overnight and get us on a path to sane government. In the meantime, the best we can do for now is to halt the decline and the erosion of our liberties.

Fans of Ted should tweet, blog, e-mail and youtube that statement.

Good recommendation.

Governor Mitt Romney: “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense,” Romney said. “They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”

That's what you will get with a Mitt Romney nomination.

4 more years of Obama.

He is the least likely to win because the base knows him for the Progressive Liberal that he is.

Mitt cannot call himself a conservative, because as Governor of MA he did the following:

1. Supported whole-heartedly Abortion
2. Supported the Gay-Agenda, up to, and including, Gay Marriage.
3. Supported and implemented the Assault Weapons ban at a state level in MA.
4. Supported TARP(This was after he was Governor).
5. Supported the Auto-Bailouts.
6. Implemented the Socialist RomneyCare with an Individual Mandate
7. Supported Global Warming.


Couple this with his complete and utter lack of trustworthiness, his serial lying, and his constant character assasination of the only conservatives in the race and all you are left is someone who may win the nomination through sleazy tactics, but will lose miserably to Obama.

I don’t like it, but understand it. I can’t see him endorsing Santorum, considering Santorum’s love of big government, lack of trust in the American people to do the right thing, and his passion for social issues.

So, if he thinks Newt can’t win, then he’s go no one else.

As a Christian, I can’t and won’t cast a vote for an abortion-loving, homosexual-pandering liberal. If I did that, I might as well start voting for leftwingers and just abandon all principles.

Not to mention the fact that Romney is one of the most disgusting, vile, phony, vicious, underhanded individuals I’ve ever seen. I can’t support that.

Given Ted’s love of guns though, how could he possibly endorse Romney? Just looking at the two individuals involved, I just can’t see how Ted managed to cross that bridge.

Amen!

This is what the GOP-E is counting on from conservatives.

Until we learn to stand firm with our principles, up to and including, another term of Obama, the GOP-E will not change their behavior.

Until we stand our ground and say it's our way or the highway and you don't get our votes, they'll keep abusing us like an abusive husband repeatedly beating his wife.

Abusers continue to do it because no-one stands up to them and forces them to stop.

Maybe you're confusing him with Chuck Norris, who did endorse Gingrich?

Besides that, the main difference between the two is that, while Ted can put a flaming arrow through a man's heart from 50 yards, Chuck can make a man's heart flee his chest in terror by merely thinking about plunging his fist into it.

OK Mr. Insult of the Evening and uncalled for.....so what’s your solution........

First, you need to get some thicker skin.

With respect to this problem, the last thing you do, if you are truly a conservative, is signal that you would be accepting of the nomination of a Progressive Liberal like Mitt Romney. This is the one reason I don't believe you are truly a conservative.

If Romney is the Nominee, you either vote for an actual conservative third-party candidate or write-in a conservative name.

If Romney is the Nominee, you fight like hell to make sure the Senate and House are under GOP CONSERVATIVE control so that Grid-lock is ensured no matter the flavor ("D" or "R") of Progressive liberal who wins the election.

If we, as conservatives, keep falling into line when the GOP-E manipulates the Primary process (Open-Primaries), the Media (primarily the conservative media), and falsely trashing the only conservatives in the race with millions of dollars of advertising, there will never be any changes and the GOP will continue trending leftward until it exists no more.

You don't cure bad behavior by accomodating it. You cure it by confronting it and refusing to tolerate it.

You know, I don't know if I can get enthusiastic about Mitt

You have summed up the problem with this election, my FRiend.

There is no GOP candidate that anybody is in love with or is excited about. That is not a recipe for victory.

Think back on every election of your lifetime. I think it is safe to say that the candidate with the most devoted base wins. There just aren't enough independents to rely on to swing an election. I can't remember the last time that a candidate that nobody likes beat a sitting president.

I think Romney will be a very weak candidate in the general because his base doesn't like him. And Newt and Santorum won't do well with independents.

I'm in the convenient position of not having to vote for POTUS - I live in CA, so my vote here won't count. Thank God, because I really can't stomach voting for Mitt Romney. Were in in a swing state, I suppose I would have to at least consider it, but I would hate it.

I will say that Romney as president presents many potential dangers. Govt. grew more under Bush 2 than under Clinton. I can't picture Romeny doing anything transformational.

On the other hand, I may be willing to take my chances with a guarantee that we will primary President Romney in 2016, and get rid of him that way. There will be some pretty good candidates available then.

I will determine who the most conservative third-party nominee is and convert as many people in my circle of influence to voting for that candidate.
