I have seen a lot of FReepers state that they would NEVER cast a vote for Romney. That is my gut reaction as well. Mitt is on record saying that I will vote for him eventually. His arrogance makes me want to prove him wrong and write in a candidate. But I fear that will lead to 4 more years of Obama. Until I stare at the ballot in November, I don't know for sure what I will do. If it is a choice between Obama and Romney, what will you do?
Anyone is better than Obama. If Obama gets another term we haven’t seen anything yet.
I will vote for anyone to the right of the current occupier of the White House.
I will vote Romney, considering him to be a placeholder.
I think he will make improvements in our economy and in our foreign policy.
I’d take “None of the Above” over Mitt. In fact right now, I’d take NOTA over the field.
I’ll probably vote for him, but I will leave the Republican Party permanently.
Because if McCain and Romney and guys like John Fund are the Republican Party, then clearly I am not.
As much as I dislike Romney, I’m afraid it’s another case of ABO.
see my tagline
Absolutely. I don't know how people can equate the two. When you look at the damage he's done in just three years -- well to quote obama: We ain't seen nothin' yet. I don't want to find out and I certainly don't want my kids to find out.
>>I wont vote for either. If I can get motivated Ill vote for real conservatives down in other races but most likely Ill sit home and drink...<<
If Obama get’s another 4 years your liver will be shot!
No, the Nation needs at least two parties. A one party system of communist international elitists precludes the elective process. I won’t play the role of global communism’s beard. Let the Rinos die with the Republic they murdered.
We need to concentrate on Congress.
If it’s Obama, I prefer he be a lame duck president for the next 4 years.
“If Obama gets another 4 years your liver will be shot!”
If Romney gets potentially 8 years the old liver wont last more than two..
To put it another way, Romney is going to implement half of the DNC’s agenda and claim it as a Republican victory.
We need to be looking toward a long term strategy to take back this country. If the Republicans despise their own base, then the base needs to reconfigure themselves into a new party. Let the Romniac GOP go the way of the Whigs.
I’ve read the near religious proclamations that Romney is this that and the other thing. It is a fact that his platform is a conservative one. IMHO it will be almost impossible for Romney to govern as a liberal with a conservative House and Senate.
It is just as likely that Santorum will approve big spending and pro union measures. That is his record.
It is just as likely Newt will adopt some pie in the sky liberal ideas. That is his record.
I will vote for any of the three IF they get the nomination.
Absolutely not, NEVER. If the GOP forces Romney down our throats, I’m done with the GOP.
I am a Christian first, a Conservative second and a Republican third and the first two PREVENT me from EVER casting a vote for Mitt Romney.
Ain’t gonna happen.
I have to agree with you. Obama cannot serve another term. PERIOD. As soon after the second term would begin, ALL HELL would break out in our land.
I would give Romney the vote just to stall the death of our land.
I DO NOT WANT ROMNEY in but would rather have him than OBAMA.
Not voting for him if it came to that, would mean putting OBAMA in place to put the final nail in our coffin!
A lot of these comments are like a spoiled child. If I can’t win I’m taking my ball home and let the whole lot burn to hell.
Imagine being in battle and one has to perform a mission that is against that person’s belief and knowing if the mission is carried out the battle will be won. I don’t know about the rest of you but I want to win the battle.
We have a President that believes in the teaching of Karl Marx. His administration probably has card carrying communists. We have to win this battle. No one can be worse than what we have.
Over Obama? Yes.
I didn’t vote for Bush either in 2000 nor 2004 and I didn’t vote for McCain in 2008 but instead voted third party each time. So why does Romney think I would vote for him? I won’t.
The GOP-e wants Romney because he is weak and will be easily manipulated to maintain the status quo.
Both the Dems and the GOP-e are afraid of Gingrich for the same reason. He is unpredictable and won't be easily controlled. He is a man of integrity and principle and will do what he thinks is right for the people and the country. Sarah Palin is the same kind of person and was destroyed for the same reason. It's worth noting that the Romney machine was involved in this.
It's time for the American people to rise up and take the country back from the stranglehold that big party political machines have on us.
Voting Obama, Romney or Santorum will not change anything. I will vote for Gingrich or Palin or John Galt, regardless of what the big parties want me to do.
Romney is not now or has he ever been a conservative.
If you want to beleive that his now conservative stance is anything but an election ruse you go ahead.
I will not vote for him, he is no different than BHO.
Yes. We must stop a second, even more destructive and unaccountable, term from 0.
Do you dismiss the votes that have already been cast for him and the votes that will be cast in the upcoming states? Are you saying Coulter, Nugent, Brewer, and many other former conservative heros are all stupid? The exit polling shows that the number one issue besides the economy is beating obama and non-freeper voters perceive that romney can beat him. There's no way romney is going to attempt to push a liberal agenda. He will have absolutely no mandate for it given the pushback he's receiving from conservatives in the primaries.
I voted for McCain.
Now it’s time for the GOP to go.
We can’t win against Democrats with a GOP party.
We need a new party.
It’s not as if it matters, Romney doesn’t have a snowball’s chance, anyway.
The ugliest attacks on her, when they came from Republicans, came from Republicans who turn out to be Romniacs. The mocking and contempt directed at the tea party, when it came from Republicans, came from Republicans who turn out to be Romniacs.
They do want our vote; its us they can't stand.
Are the establishment republicans ever going to get wise enough to figure out if you keep electing rinos that's what you are always going have to deal with? I mean how obvious does it have to get for the establishment wankers to realize this? It's like the definition of insanity which is what rino lovers keep encouraging! (Mental Midgets!) Or maybe these dimwits are to arrogant and ignorant to realize rino's like McCain and Romney could NEVER beat Obama in the first place because they are complete conservative losers.
McCain especially is:
Kow tows to liberals
A general asswipe!
Romney is a NE Liberal. That's all you need to know!
Newsflash, as a conservative I don't want to vote for and try to elect LIBERAL buttmunch rino's like Romney!
So, I should vote for a rino who will give us Romneycare opposed to Obamacare? It's a losing proposition!!!!
Please tell me what the difference is?
You may have done it unintentionally, but... You probably have incited a riot.
How I see it as well.
We have to defeat the GOP before we can defeat Democrats.
Although the mainstream media did not vet President Obama from carefully researching him, I feel I have a reasonable picture of who he is. All and I mean all of his associations are Marxist/Communist. At heart he is a Muslim, and he doesn’t have a single Christian belief. With every sinew of his being, he hates this country and wants it gone. If he gets another four years without the tempering effect of another election, the damage he will do will be impossible to imagine. Please remember that he thinks our Constitution is a worthless piece of paper and that he can do whatever he wants.
Mitt Romney was not my choice and is not my choice. However, he would be better than Obama.
And yes, I think we need another party but that cannot be done before the next election.
There is a group of people in the Republican Party who think they should be in charge and the rest of us shut up and go along. Those days are over, but we cannot change things over night.
For these reasons, I will vote for Romney if he is the candidate, but it will not be a happy vote.
I support Santorum.
But I would vote for Mickey Mouse to flush the Obamanation out of the White House. And if Romney is nominated, I may be forced to do just that.
Vote the underticket.
well said Jeff!!!!!!
“You may have done it unintentionally, but... You probably have incited a riot.”
It’s a conversation that was inevitable.
Romney will not get my vote. Romney and Obama are infected with the exact same disease.
I’m so sick of the GOP forcing RINO’s down my throat. No more!
Absolutely. At the very LEAST.
To do otherwise is to not give our children a fighting CHANCE. What parent wouldn't even give their children (at the very least) life-lenthening medicine?
There is absolutely no difference here...with our country. Our childrens' country.
I'm sorry...I'm too much of a Mama Grizzly...toward both country and kids.
On a stack of bibles, I did not see your tag line when I wrote my previous response!! LOL!
Obama gets another four and they may well be over for good. There will be no turning back. He has some radical changes in store for us. He will come after conservatives with a vengence if he wins another term.
I wont answer until after the candidate is chosen.
The Republicans, damn them, could nominate a bucket of fried chicken and it would make a better and less damaging President than what we have now. The choice between a Liberal and a Communist would be hugely frustrating and unpleasant but still pretty clear.
“Does that sound like Obama?”
Yes, it does.
No: Here is my reason(s).
Obama and Romney share or are not significantly different in their views with respect to at least the following issues based on their actions:
1. Gun control;
4. Appointing liberal judges;
5. Global Warming/cap & Trade/ UN Agenda 21
6. Homosexual Agenda;
7. Hostility to US Constitution;
8. Deficit spending;
9. Entitlement programs;
10.Government takeover of the health care industry;
11.Higher gas prices exacerbated by an anti-drilling agenda;
12.Undeclared wars and foreign aid;
13.Burdensome job-killing regulations;
Thus, with Obama in the White House The GOP will fight alongside Americans like myself opposed to the above examples of America destroying actions from the White house. But, with Romney in there, the GOP, Fox and most of the Republican pundits will fight against Americans who are opposing the same America destroying actions that Obama has and is doing because the politician has an R after his name.
In battle, its better to know have a known enemy in front then a traitor within your own ranks.
Let not have to make that choice.
As will I.....it is much harder for a blatant socialist, like Obama to pass his agenda, than it is for a stealth socialist, like Romney.
