I have a theory about that. Whether due to cowardice and/or cold political calculation, I think the conservative big hitters didn't want to spend 24/7 fundraising to counter Mitt and his smear machine. If just one of this set: Palin, DeMint, Thune, etc. would have run, I think that the ABR vote which was probably 70-80% of the Republican voters would have coalesced around that person and wiped Romney off the map.
I think that Rick Perry underestimated how much he'd be affected by the painkillers for his back surgery. He might not be Winston Churchill in oratory but he's not that bad.
I think the ones that annoy me the most are the conservatives who have thrown in the towel and have just resigned themselves to Romney. Stand by your principles and take the fight to the convention. Romney hasn't clinched the nomination yet, so let's not surrender. Some things are worth standing up for and IMO, political conservatism is one of them. Some people who should be ashamed of themselves are handing over the keys to the Titanic to our modern-day Edward Smith.
“WE, THE CONSERVATIVE WING OF THE GOP, DESERVE MOST OF THE BLAME.”
If we had any say in the day to day operations and long term direction of the GOP I would agree. We do not, and I submit nor will we ever. The -purpose- of the GOP is to be a hole in the conservatives’ bucket. No doubt many will dispute that, but “the stupid party” appears very canny indeed if one viewsd them from the perspective of deliberate saboteurs; a Fifth Column of the Progressives.
“Id vote for a 3-legged, sh** eating dog before Id vote for Obama, “
So would I!
But I won’t vote for Romney.
The Warren Jeffords grenade was lit by Hillary in early 2008 who thought she would get to run against Mitt.
Well, the Mormon scandals have nothing on the Evangelicals? Do you remember Jimmy Swaggart and Jim Bakker? I could name more, but, no use.
Who says I have to support either of these two candidates? The GOPe?
There are a number of third-party candidates running, or one could always stay home.
That’s a vote for Obama. But, do whatever your conscience dictates you do. You only have to answer to yourself.....
.....and your grandchildren.
I think that Rick Perry underestimated how much he’d be affected by the painkillers for his back surgery.
I’m a native Texan. We’ve had Rick Perry in office, in some capacity, for 25 years; kept there by the GOP machine. Dude was dumb before he ever had back surgery.
And I don’t care what you do, but your behavior, as evidenced on this thread, is not warranted, under any circumstances. Who do you “think” you are telling a person who disagree with you to go to DU?
It’s petulant and puerile in its substance.
Age is no substitute for reason. You think that age gives you the right to behave the way you are?
If anything, it only demonstrates a complete lack of maturity on your part.
Who do you think you are telling a person who disagree with you to go to DU?
And who do you think you are telling me what I’m thinking or trying to do? I’m not trying to force anyone to give up their conservative values and I resented you assuming that you knew my intent.
Now it’s supposed to be my fault because you “resented” my interpretation of what you wrote?
Better get your reading glasses on...
Here, in your own words...
Your “intent” was made clear when you tried to smear any who politely disagree; (In your own words... “Now, go on over to the DU with the other B. Hussein Obama supporters and Marxist Muslims.”) and then ramp it up into a flame war.
Why don’t you go and post to one of your other pro-Romney sycophants? It’ll be less stressful and you won’t get twisted up in trying to remember what you wrote.
