Of course I’ll pull the lever for whomever has the (R) next to his name! Even though I’m not enthusiastic about any of the primary candidates, to stay home in November and give Obama 4 more years would be irresponsible and reckless.

Romney could help matters greatly by selecting Lt. Col. Allen West as VP. (Mitt, or Mitt’s people, are you reading this? Listen up!)

If it looks like an easy win or a crushing defeat for Mittens in the Ohio election or the nation as a whole I'll find another person on the ballot to vote for. On the other hand if it looks like the election is close and Ohio is the fulcrum on which the electoral college balances on...(shudder). I would hate to have to make that decision once again. My nose is already permanently deformed from having to clamp it shut for the crap the Republican Party puts in front of us and tells us to swallow.

“If these last few months have not convinced everyone that Obama is the worse possible out come, than I don’t know what to say. ABO.”

Maybe after the 2nd term Obama appoints another SCOTUS Justice who reinstates Obamacare AND abolishes the 2nd Amendment rights (remember that Heller was a 5-4 vote!), then they will wake up.

Maybe.

I will quit the Republican party. The thought of it has become kind of cathartic. I’m embarrassed enough by voting for McCain, I’m not living with the humiliation of voting for Romney like it matters. I’ll be checking out the Constitution Party but will be independent from a party first.

If you stay home on election day, or write-in someone other than the republican nominee you are enabling a second term for Obama (and by the way you are, in effect, suborning the Constitution by allowing someone who is not a natural born citizen to hold the Office of the President of the United States).

You are also enabling Obama to shift the make-up of SCOTUS should he have the opportunity to nominate another Supreme Court Justice in his second term.

It's your choice. If I were you I'd join-up and fly wing with whomever secures the Republican Party's nomination.

See sig line. Even if he wins he’ll be another left-catering, big government, GOP disaster who will alienate enough people to just sweep the next liberal into the White House anyway. Nothing will change in the downward direction of the country unless and until we ever get a conservative candidate. Might as well take our lumps now and not play the GOP’s stupid lesser of two evils game.

If my one vote makes the difference between whether or not the GOP nominee gets my state’s electoral college votes, then that same GOP nominee has no hopes of winning.

Why was it OK for Romney to have helped Obama win?

FLASHBACK:

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.

Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

I have the luxury of living in CA where my vote won’t matter.

However, if I were in a swing state, I would hold my nose and vote for Romney.

I could not, in good conscience, not vote against Obama.

If you can’t in good conscience vote for Romney, that must mean that you can in good conscience not vote or vote for somone who cannot possibly win.

If that means that your vote will not count toward defeating Obama, can you live with that on your conscience?

I could not and I can’t stand Mitt, but I will vote for him if he is the candidate.

Not only that .. but just a few HUNDRED more GOP votes in VA in 2006 or Minnesota in 2008 and Obamacare would NOT be the law.

This idea that your vote doesnt count so you can throw it away is wrong. Especially for Congress! So vote the full ballot and VOTE.

We won’t get anything different from Romney than we got from Ø, you can count on it. Romney can’t be trusted. He is throwing out all the same lies that Ø reassured his more socially conservative base with just to get elected, only to reneg on all of them as soon as he got into office.

If Romney has to be the establishment anointed, I will throw all of my resources and efforts into electing the most conservative Congress possible. But I don’t think Romney can beat Ø. Why vote for the covert Leftist when you can have the out-and-proud one?

I have no doubt at all that Romney will defeat Obama in an historic landslide that will make the 2010 midterms look tame by comparison. The mood on the street against Obama is getting uglier every day for the Dems...

I respectfully submit that you’re asking the wrong question.

The right question is “How are we going to rid the GOP of wimps, whiners, and afraid-to-fight losers”

The choice of Obama vs. anyone else is obvious - even if “anyone else” is Romney, and I trust everyone will make the right choice....I hope so.

The vitriol should be directed to the Republican party apparatus.

Lot's of folks stayed home because no one had any idea just what hussein was capable of. We thought we'd teach those RINO GOPes a lesson. Well they learned nothing, and now we are screwed. We have to support this waxworks asshat to save our country.

We kept Bush from pushing through his "compassionate conservative" BS, and we can keep romney in check too. Local level, and senate races are key.

They can live with help putting that type of inhuman slimeball in charge for another four, because they can pretend and brag that they are still "pure." Pure BS.
