Please explain. You lost me.
Rather than coming on this thread and insulting other FReepers, or spamming us with anti-Romney images, explain to us how you think another candidate can win, and just who that candidate is?
No one here has really been all out for Romney. Almost everyone here was for Sarah Palin, or Cain, or Perry or Gingrich, or even Santorum.
But those candidates aren’t running or winning like we want them to do.
What do you propose we do?
I would love to agree with you that Romney is not a light weight and I hope you prove right if he's the nominee! I also agree with you that if we get an open election, there's a danger that Jeb Bush pops up as the nominee and I would hate that about as much as Romney.
I heard Romney state sometime back that we don't have to treat our president with disrespect. that's not a direct quote and I can't remember where/when he said it.
Now if he thinks treating "our president" with respect means treating him like he treated Gingrich, that's okay. Trouble is I remember McCain being so careful to be respectful of Obama that he wouldn't even allow mention of his middle name or his domestic terrorist pals and that's not okay. It probably wouldn't have stopped Obama last time, but more people are disappointed and aware that there's something wrong with him now. That MUST be pursued and pursued HARD!
I think we all agree that if Sarah Palin hadn't been in the picture, McCain wouldn't even have come close and would have passed Mondale in humiliation.
You're right about all of them having thick files. The sad thing is that everybody already knows about Gingrich's baggage and so you've got the "old news, whaddaya got now" thing going there, plus he's admitted it and repented.
I don't like Santorum and I agree that they'll follow the line against him that you describe. Worse, he doesn't defend himself anywhere near as well as Gingrich who turns it back on the accuser rather than being defensive.
I have very little to hope for as people seem to be following directions very well from the establishment of both parties that are so afraid of Gingrich.
I couldn't believe that people believed McCain's lies about J.D. Hayworth who would have been a strong conservative force in the Senate, but even here in AZ where people know both of them McCain easily won because they were led to believe that McCain had the better chance of winning. (Where have I heard that before?) That was backed up for me by people extremely active in AZ Republican politics.
You are also correct that the 'Rats will make things up about our nominee and the Progressive enemedia will carry the ball for them. We are so going to need a fighter.
I don't regard Romney as conservative at all with the one exception that he does support capitalism. That's why I'll work for him (GAG!) if he does prevail. Sorry about the long reply, but it's somewhat cathartic and better than going to a shrink. Be well.
Amen. Dittos from me!
Then there is a whole herd who profess Catholicism but never go to Mass because the Church is too restrictive and unfair to women. There are a lot of these. They're not religious but belong to a religion; who knows why. I call them DEMOCRATS.
Good one AB,I get the picture.
Here’s another on I just noticed don’t know if anyone here on FR is chatting about this yet.
Seems the fur may fly this Tuesday morning as Sarah Palin goes up against the perky one on nbc’s morning show. NBC reportedly hired Palin as a fill in host for the day! Could be the only DBM produced show I watch this year!!
Fantastic post!! Thank you both!
I apologized to you personally 2 weeks ago in Freepmail and you accepted my apology....thank you
to those here....I was ignorant in 2 responses to Bray in the past but my attcack bothered me badly...I went back and re read a lot of Bray’s work....
It was me who was ignorant and I aplogize for my actions
We had a year and a half of Wall Street meltdown, fueled mostly by bad USG policy but PR’ed by the media as all Wall Street greed. (And yes I don't deny there was a lot of that!) So what are our GOP elite election geniuses doing, promoting a guy who on day one will be painted as Gordon Gekko! The OWS’ers will come out of the woodwork in mass and their “outrage” will now look plausible to mostly nonpolitical John and Jane Q Public! Now add in his nonstandard religious background. (I am not a religious bigot on this. I am saying what the Rat counterattack will do!) The attack on his religious background will consist of, endless yapping by panels of “beautiful people”, numerous made-for-TV movies, reruns of Sister Wives and probably another FLDS crack down. Opposition historical research will force Romney to have to answer questions regarding some half-baked bleating by some 1880s Mormon leader. Also given the fact that the LDS didn't regularize their relationships with blacks until 1976, Romney will have endless questions regarding that! Where will there be any time for Zero's failures to be discussed? Romney is an election PR disaster of epic proportions! Notice I haven't even gotten into Romney's liberalism! ( And yes I know this never comes up with Reid, the Udalls and probably others!)
Ronmey’s liberalism will suppress conservative turnout. Ronmey’s business career as a investment guy couple that with how the Rat's and their media minions will paint his religious beliefs will depress the independent turn out. (Which negates the whole argument for him!) .
What were this guys thinking? (Were they thinking?)
Ann Coulter on This Week Without David Brinkley killed it on the ‘stand your ground law’ and made Jake Tapper look like an idiot.
I may forgive her for supporting Mittens.
Don’t worry about it. It did bother me the way you said it, but it takes a big man to apologize as you did.
it ain’t big or little, it is right, I wasn’t.....
Who is this Bimbette on Meet the Presstitutes? Why does Rick have to get out for the good of the Party? I am sure she really cares about the good of the other Party. Are there any other issues besides his quitting in America?
Stay and fight Rick, give us someone to vote for.
Pray for America
Ronmeys liberalism will suppress conservative turnout. Ronmeys business career as a investment guy couple that with how the Rat's and their media minions will paint his religious beliefs which will then depress the independent turn out. (Which negates the whole argument for him!) .

FRiend, There was no insult. There was no spam.
The images and posts have the truth about Milt.
Romney is NOT winning.
If you think he can win, after taking only 34% of the GOP
vote (which HE BOUGHT and sent operatives in to vote
for him repeatedly) and stabbing
all the other conservatives in the heart
(and their children), then you are sadly mistaken.

I agree completely about these two.
The Republicans win because the Democrats have been so bad, not because they are offering a decisively better solution.
Want proof? It happened before.
It CAN happen again.
No really, the Democrats have been that bad that even a RINO will have the advantage, not that I know for-sure the outcome, none of us will know till ACORN has to stop stuffing the ballot boxes and the vote gets counted.
