I will crawl over broken glass to vote for *WHOEVER* the Republican nominee is even if it's Romney.He certainly isn't my first choice (Governor Palin is)...he's not even my second choice.But if,as President,he's "correct" only TWENTY FIVE PERCENT of the time (a reasonable assumption,I'd say) it sure as hell beats ZERO percent of the time.

Remember this,boys and girls...Osama Obama,Bill Ayers,Bernadine Dohrn,Van Jones,David Axelrod,Hugo Chavez and "Reverend" Wright will applaud ANY ONE OF US who refuses to work for and vote for the nominee because he isn't "pure" enough.They'll do this because THIS WILL BE A CLOSE ELECTION and,as we saw in 2000,a swing of about 1000 votes in New Hampshire (*four* Electoral Votes) would,today,spell "former President algore" (check the stats,I have).

And BTW....Saul Alinsky will be applauding from the depths of hell along with the others.

Pete Hoekstra has some RINO tendencies but he can still be considered conservative compared to guys like McCain. Clark Durant also looks good in that race as a tea party supported candidate.

I think Hoekstra probably has the best chance and has gotten the endorsement of Herman Cain.

I’m still undecided on which horse to back against Big Ole Debbie.

I have said many times I cannot see any way I would vote for Romney — but the last month in particular has brought it home that no matter WHO the GOP nominee is we MUST get rid of Hussein Obama and the rest of the Demonrat hee haw gang. So yes I will be holding my nose and getting very inebriated so I can pull the lever for the lying liberal from Massoftwosh*ts.

Hopefully he will name a very conservative running mate, and if we are lucky maybe that person will somehow become President. I know it is un-Christian to think in terms of Romney having a health issue that would prevent him from completing his term, but it is what it is and it is how I feel.

I will vote against O. Whoever is the nominee.

But if its Romney, I’ll also leave the GOP afterward.

My prediction; if Romney loses in the general, the GOP breaks. If he wins, it might break anyway. Folks like me at least aren’t going to stay in a party that would promote Romney as its best.

Romney could do as much damage to the R’s as obama has done to the D’s. And that’s a lot.

If Romney gets the nom. I’ll hope for a republican congress and four more years of a neutered Obama.

I am considering voting for Obama for just that reason.

I’m only beginning to entertain the idea, And I’d need to polish off a bottle of scotch on my way to the voting booth to do it.

Who want’s to be my designated driver?

I wish I had more time to respond, perhaps later, but for now if Romney were merely an “imperfect candidate” I might be able to consider voting for him. That’s not the case.

I will never vote for another RINO. Period.

One thing I learned from Clinton is that when he won he then proclaimed that he had a “mandate” because he won. Well, I am not voting for a RINO just to listen to him talk about his “mandate”.

Like Bush's second term, Romney will be kept in reasonable check by Conservative talk radio and other media outlets.

Another four years of Obama will likely lead to R2/CW2.

Any Patriot worth his salt cannot let that happen in good conscience by staying home or writing in a fantasy candidate. We also have yet to see who Romney's running mate could be - Allen West would be an excellent choice.

Anyone voting for Mittens just because he has an (R) next to his name is supporting the Republican party’s view that they could run a massive liberal like Mittens and still win.

If the Republican party wants my vote they had better run something other than a liberal like Mittens Romney.

The last time I voted *for* any presidential candidate, it was for Reagan in 1984. Since then, I’ve voted against Dukakis, against Clinton, against Gore, and against Obama.

It sure would be nice for the GOP to give us another candidate we can vote *for*.

I find it almost funny how we are on the precipice of a dictatorship. Obama openly defies congress, ignores subpoenas, insults scotus, is actively gutting the US both militarily and economically, and we still don't even know who he really is other than a naked marxist, yet some are saying Romney will be “just the same”. Romney's a poor candidate but to suggest he'll be “just like” the current reign of terror suggests that we either have people here playing for the other side, or they need to pee in a cup. ABO. Sometimes you just have to play the cards you are dealt.

I will take "or WAHT" for 200 ALEX,

Like McLame, who never ran for the prize.

The RNC is no different from the DNC they may postulate and wail, and gnash teeth but they are as spineless and conflicted as the Dems.

If I have to write in my own I will have my say.....

"F" the traitors in DC (everyone of them) Romney will do to America what he did to Massachusetts, and that is as F'ed up as a state can be, so if the Flying "o" gets 4 more years then that is just our destiny.

4 more years of that chicken sh!t abomination that is the AG.

and the willingness to push this country into a race war, then so be it.

the judiciary is a joke and as bent as a dog's hind leg. There is no perfect candidate, but what the RNC is forcing down our throats is as unpalatable as that “light-skinned” with “no Negro dialect” ... (Thanks Harry Reid, you punk POS)

It really makes no difference.. Willard or Zerodamus..

Willard will simply re-arraign federal givernment.. he will not actually gut it and salt it down.. He will NOT decrease the size of federal givernment he will however make some of it actually work.. giving him the facade of changing things.. You know appearing to be “A FIXER”..

He might throw conservatives a bone by enhancing the so-called bush tax cuts.. maybe thats not a given..

No big differences between Zerodamus and Willard..
Except he may spend a little less.. after all he is a RINO..

Willard and the Obamanoid are OWNED BY THE UNIONS.. DUUUUGH..

I may not vote for the first time in my adult life..
With me, the play is over, the Kabuki is caput, this movie sucks, the Skit has ended, the Boondoggle has no boon..

What it takes for some people to walk out on political porno must be very nasty..
I’ve had it.. Newt being replaced by two Unions stooges was “IT”..
The shows over for me, Newt couldn’t sing but at least he could dance..

Watching Willard and the Obamanoid do “Whos on first” with Masks on is not for me..
The fix is in...... and I’m not amused.. I did this already with Bush(twice)
I’M WALKING OUT ON THIS SHOW... hoping for Civil War..

I have long stated I would vote for Mickey Mouse if he was Obama’s opponent. I have held my nose and voted more often than I can remember and this time I will most certainly do it again. The reelection of Obama would be a disaster for the country. Hopefully, we can have a Republican House and Senate.

The perfect is the enemy of the good. Romney is certainly NOT to the left of Obama. Thus, if Romney is to the right of Obama on a single issue, you should be voting for him. You and those who think like you are guaranteeing the reelection of the most leftist president in history. I humbly request you “rethink” your position.

You are delusional, my friend. Not enough difference? Seriously? Have you been actually paying attention. You probably would have said the same thing about Reagan after he was governer of California - he did, after all, institue no fault divorce, etc.

If you honestly think that Romney will appoint the same kind of Supreme Court judges that Obama would, or enact the same anti-business regulations, you are SERIOUSLY flawed in your thinking and may have other emotional issues which lead to your utter denial of reality. I get your pissed. We all are - we all wanted a more conservative candidate. But, life is about tough choices. Grow up, be an adult, make the hard decisions. Don’t be a child who doesn’t want to play when he doesn’t like the rules. Man up.

In Romney’s case, it’s the perfect is the enemy of the thoroughly mediocre. But, that’s better than Obama. Dude, you stay home on election day, YOU are responsible for the damage Obama does in his second term, not the Republican party who failed to nominate your ‘pure’ conservative candidate. NOBODY IS LISTENING TO YOU STAYING HOME, except the walls that you talk to when watching the news.

Might as well take our lumps now and not play the GOP’s stupid lesser of two evils game.

I don't care about the GOP one way or the other. I love my country and I care about the rule of law. Obama's murky foreign background, his refusal to provide unassailable evidence of his eligibility, his EO profligacy, his RABID, unequivocal anti-life record, his obvious intent to dictate from the throne by undermining the legislature and judiciary, his corrupt, rotten connections from Chicago, his doctrinaire Marxist beliefs, his Racism, his abuse of government power through his frenzied lawsuit-wielding DoJ, the potential of more Kagan's on the SC (God forbid!) and last, but not least, his hideous wife...

Only a smattering of the reasons I say ABO.

Barack Obama is the worst President this nation has ever suffered. Like LBJ before him, Obama's destructive policies will continue to plague our nation for generations, long after he has left office.

There will be no Santorum or Gingrich comeback. There will be no brokered convention that ushers in Sarah Palin. Mitt Romney is the de facto Republican nominee and those who fail to comprehend this are living in denial. And yes, this sucks. He is not the man we wanted. But this is not the time to sit out a presidential election. This is not the time to cast a protest vote for some quixotic third-party candidate, to teach the GOP a lesson. Obama must be removed from office. The future of this country and the futures of our children and grandchildren depend on it for they will inevitably pay the costs that his administration tenders upon this nation.

God willing, Obama is defeated in November and we have a Republican-majority congress with the will and fortitude to keep Romney's liberal tendencies in check.

SO you would rather a leftist get a mandate than a RINO who’s got a pro-growth agenda and who’s ‘mandate’ is to repeal Obamacare, cut taxes rates, control spending, and appoint justices like Scalia?

yeah, that makes sense. somewhere. Not in America.

I’m not excited about ANY of the remaining Republican candidates, but if he is the nominee, I will suck it up and vote for Romney.

And I’ll vote straight GOP on the down-ballot races (though I have no hope of either Feinstein or Lofgren being knocked off their perches) and pray that we wind up with a veto-proof and conservative majority in both houses.

Let’s just go ahead, exert our power, while our country becomes more like Greece.
Let’s just go ahead, exert our power, while gas, coal and natural gas gets locked down and we have to pay out the arse to just get to work.
Let’s just go ahead, exert our power, and see what freedom we have left evaporate.

I know the arguments for why we shouldn’t vote for the establishment candidate, I know the establishment has sold us out before, but FRIENDS it is do or die time for this country and we have to rebuild on what we have been given.

New Hampshire,November of 2000.A grand total of 4 Electoral votes at stake there.Check out that state's results,use a little imagination (no more than a little would be needed,as you'll see as you look at the numbers) and then rework the Electoral College results.
