Would a Romney-Gingrich ticket be acceptable to Jim Robinson & other conservative Freepers? [NO!! ]
[Not only no, but HELL NO!! NEVER AGAIN!! - Jim] | April 9, 2012 | Ralph Mitchell

Posted on 04/09/2012 8:06:05 AM PDT by mitchell001

Since Newt Gingrich is talking teamwork and cooperation with Romney & Santorum to defeat Obama, would Jim Robinson and conservative Free Republic people join me in accepting and pushing a Romney-Gingrich ticket. Frankly, I bristle at the mention of Romney-Nicki Halley or other RINO tickets. Personally, Romney would be very smart to put conservatives at the table of his campaign and administration team. Newt is so passionate about Big Ideas, reform and he knows how to push the levers of Congress. Mitt Romney can be a good president, however, with Newt on his team, Mitt Romney could be a great president. We need Gingrich's brains and political skill on the ticket and in the administration.

I will vote against Obama.

Then we’ll have our work cut out for us to keep Mitt from selling us the same stuff O was selling, but more competently and at a discount.

Either way, its going to be a long four years.

As I’ve said before, Gingrich would be fantastic as president of the senate. He knows parliamentary maneuvers better than anybody.

You can have Obama with a likely Republican House and Senate majority blocking every piece of legislation and every SC nominee he proposes, or you can have Romney with a likely Republican House and Senate majority telling the rest of us to shut up and support him as he panders in vain to liberals and the editorial pages of the New York Times and Washington Post.

The VP in either scenario will be in Dayton or Muncie cutting ceremonial ribbons with a big pair of scissors, and simply doesn't matter.

Why would you choose the Constitution or Libertarian parties? Their current nominees have pretty much the same negatives as Romney. Libertarian party has Gary Johnson who might as well be a Democrat, pro abortion, pro pot, anti-gun, etc. The Constitution Party has Virgil Goode who up until a few years ago was a Democrat, switched to a Republican when he lost a primary and voted RINO. He is just as liberal as Romney on most issues.

If you are going to go third party, at least choose one that has a Conservative candidate versus trading one liberal for another.

No. Romney is not acceptable. Romney signed an assault weapons ban, inaugurated gay marriage, and Romneycare. These actions belie any words that he would say, or his supporters would say. The excuse that he did these things out of political expediency indicates that he is a man of no principles. Romney is not a clear alternative to Obama, and if nominated that is a clear sign that the GOP is willing to accept socialism as the future of the US. If I vote for Romney that’s what I’m endorsing, and I am not doing it. In May I’m going to polls, and I’m going to vote for Newt, Santorum, or even Ron Paul, but not Romney. In the fall, I’ve got some people downticket I am going to support- conservative Republicans, naturally. But Romney, no.

Ditto. Romney is unacceptable.

I also voted third party in 1996 (Constitution) despite running on the same ballot as Dole in my home state. I do NOT regret that.

I voted for the Libertarian candidate in the 2010 Senatorial election in your home state. Remember the candidates?

Voting other than Republican was a first ever for me but I'll do it again if Romney is on the ticket.

The current GOP as it is now is turning Conservatives off & there may come a time that we will have to form our own Conservative party or be slaves to the GOP/RAT parties forever.

We have to either take back the GOP, or form the Conservative Party. Which is the most practical move?

“But many evangelical Christians will vote 3rd party rather than vote Romney. If I understand correctly, they would rather die an unspeakably painful and sinister death than cast a vote for a Mormon.”

Mormon is the new Negro apparently. But then, both demographics are voting about 94% for their respective homie, as that overrides any actual history of governance.

>>>If you vote Libertarian, you will be helping to re-elect Obama.<<<

a) The Liberal traitors in the GOP will have already re-elected Obama by nominating Romney, who is totally unelectable.

b) Even if Mitt could some how beat Hussein, he would be every bit as horrible as Obama. Look at his RECORD not the obvious LIES he started telling it 2007. His is a radical, left-wing Liberal.

On a scale of 1 to 10 lets say marxism is a one and conservative is a 10. I would put RINO at about a 5.0 and would rate Romney a 3.5. So on my scale he doesn’t even get to the exalted rank of RINO.

On policy matters Romney is very close to Obama. Both are total liars. Both big government men, both raised taxes, both support the gay agenda ( Romney even more than Obama did) both nominated liberal judges both want ed government controlled healthcare, and on and on.

Obama and a republican senate holds the hope of deadlock and a slowing of the march left. Romney and a republican senate would be a real slouch left given the republicans would not fight their own president.

I cannot vote for Romney in any regard I don’t care who he tags for VP. Him as president is the worst possible scenario for the country and conservatives. (in my humble opinion)

Romney might consider it if Gingrich showed that he could deliver the conservative votes. However, have you seen Gingrich's primary results lately? 8% in Illinois, 6% in Wisconsin. 11% in Maryland, 14% in Kansas, less than 1% in ultra-conservative Wyoming. Even in the Deep South, supposedly Gingrich's stronghold, he got only 16% in Louisiana a couple weeks ago. For Gingrich, the past couple months have been a train wreck of epic proportions. He says he is going to Tampa but he might need to thumb a ride because he's out of cash and out of luck.

I know that Gingrich has his fans here but let's face it, Gingrich is politically toxic and does not bring anything to the table. In fact, he would be a drag on the ticket as the recent primary results have shown. It's time to end this silly pipe dream of Gingrich finding a way of getting on the ticket.

Don't shoot the messenger, take a look at the recent results for yourselves.

The GOP has been like an abusive husband and conservatives like a battered wife. Hopefully enough of us won’t take it any more and when Romney loses this November the GOP might take a hint that they can no longer take us for granted.

I am inclined to think that the BIG FIX is definitely in.

I don’t see too much discussion here about this issue, but it seems (at least to me) VERY unlikely that enough voters will ignore the mormon issue to elect Romney, let alone whether enough conservatives will “hold their collective noses” and vote for him.

I realize that it is a BIG organization with worldwide activities and influence, but the fact that 40+% of the electorate can still tell pollsters that they support the idiot/criminal/marxist/muslim (take your pick) that presently inhabits the WH, gives me little optimism that ANY of them will vote for Mitt.

Of the remaining 60% give or take undeclared Ob supporters, and declared Ob critics, I think MANY of them will not be able to get past the mormon issue and hence will not vote for Mitt.

I think they picked Mitt just for the very reason - they expect in the end that the mormon issue will doom him to losing to the Dem candidate, regardless of who it turns out to be.

The most depressing aspect about ALL of this is that at best, all we can hope to do is slow the progress towards the inevitable.

The insidious and cancerous growth of political Correctness and “Fairness”/Diversity has doomed this once great country, I fear.

From bus drivers making $100K to firefighters/cops and their obscene comp plans, the public employees financial atrocities, the escapades of our elected representatives, rampant voter fraud and the explosion of Homeland Security’s unconstitutional slamming of our basic rights we have some dreary days ahead.

We still have a nation that desperately needs to be saved - from Obama,Inc.

Remember, I said I live in CA. My vote wont count in the General, and the RNC has made it so it doesn't count in the primaries, judges have made my state initiatives not count.

Obama, Inc is just a more aggressive version of the RNC. I refuse to be the RNC's version of the DNC's Holder's people.

Romney has made clear he’s not interested in conservatives in this race. He is a leftist and loud and proud of it. So good luck with all that, GOP.

I’ll wait until the GOP is weary of losing and comes up with some serious conservative voice and reform, as opposed to socialist (Romneycare, i.e.) reformers.

Worst of all, they picked an aggressive pervert sexual social engineer who was proud to use the power of the State to bother other people’s children with gay sex clubs and “education” in the pulic schools. Kiddie sex perverts. He’ll get the Penn state vote, for sure.

The reality of presidential politics is that the guy at the top ultimately sets the tone. I admire Newt. But I don’t think even he could overcome Romney’s RINO tendencies.

One need look no further than what happened to Representative Bart Stupack during the Obamacare fiasco. Bart was one of the few principled Blue Dog democrats out there. He was pro-life, had a perfect rating from the NRA, stood up for serving members and veterans, and did a lot for the law enforcement community and rural conservatives. Unfortunately, he was ultimately crushed by Obama at the top, and forced to support Obamacare, despite being one of the most popular representatives in his electoral district.

And don’t kid yourselves. The same thing happens to conservatives on the GOP side when RINOs and GOPe take hold of the party machinery. Anyone else remember how Representative “B-1” Bob Dornan was sidelined?

Why bother voting? A Libertarian vote is a castoff; and have to say, a feel-good, luxury vote - that serves only the ego of the voter himself. IMHO.

There IS a difference between Romney and Obama; inasmuch as Romney does not hate America; and understands the need for American 'stature' and vitality in the world; and at home. He appreciates a 'working' Economy i.e. a 'capitalism' per measure that Obama can never appreciate; nor will he invite it; much less, in time; allow.

Romney appreciates our Military in ways that are unequivocally foreign to Obama. And of course; there is our Constitution - Romney does not 'spit' on it - nor is he doing a 'rewrite' to devalue or eliminate the 'Freedom' it protects. Unlike Obama. . .

Much to resent in Mitt; but no comparison to damage promised and guaranteed, from Obama.

And while less important on the totem pole - but still part of a critical mix - there are the wives. Ann Romney; NO, Michelle Obama. . .She will NOT be telling American children 'not to trust their parents' - what they say and believe; nor the food the school lunches they prepare - nor 'en toto' tell America, to go 'whatever' itself. . .

Rubio is not eligible to the Office of the Vice President nor the Office of the President. Any attempt to make Rubio or Jindal a canadidate for those offices is just as much a violation of the Constitution as the unlawful Obama Administration. The Republican Party and its infiltrators from the New World Government movement and the Deemocrats, socialists, and communists are knowingly bringing about the division and destruction of the Republican Party. The Democrats are voting as Republicans in the primaries to put Romney in as the Republican candidate.

Once there is a turd in the punchbowl, there is no other ingredient that can be added to improve the taste - or safety.

Willard Romney is the LIBERAL turd in our punchbowl.

He has supported government mandates, gay man-dates, abortion, TARP, government controlled healthcare, etc.

What can you possibly add to sanitize a bowl of punch, when the turd remains??

A Romney-anybody ticket has never and will never be acceptable. Many of those sitting on SCOTUS are not spring chickens. Any Romney nomination to the Court has to be better than another o nominee.
We also need a filibuster proof Senate.

The thought of casting a ballot for Romney turns my stomach. However, a Romney sitting in the Oval Office will put us in a better position than now as long as we retain the House. But we will still have much work ahead of us.

“We have to either take back the GOP, or form the Conservative Party. Which is the most practical move?”

One is a frontal assault on an entrenched, supplied, and determined enemy. That attack has been under way since 2010, and has failed miserably.

The other turns their flank and opens the opportunity to bring in principled libertarians and what were the Reagan Democrats. None of the GOP nomenklatura would need to be placated or able to poison the well, as they have been doing since 1989 and before.

Now is not the time, because of down ticket races. December 2012 is the time to begin.

Thank you. It is just so sad. Took an oath to defend the country from threats, both foreign and domestic, and they have won on my watch. I have voted every election, local, state, and national for the last 40 years. If I decide to vote for President, as I will be in the voting booth for the local contests, I will write in Palin. What difference does it make?

I'm a Newt fan, but I don't like the idea of him as VP for one simple reason. The VP slot needs to be a viable future candidate...I always thought it was a dumb move for Bush to keep Cheney for the second term...we needed a viable future candidate in that slot.

My vote would be Paul Ryan.
