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.
With Romney, you’re given poison by the glass. Obama just sells you the bottle. I didn’t vote for John McCain, why would I vote for either of those clowns?
Until the Republicans start giving us conservative candidates, they will be providing little in the way of alternatives.
I’ll stay home (again) rather than sell my vote that cheap.
FUMR!! NO MORE RINOS!!

Don't stay home, vote down-ticket. As for the GOP-e's golden boy, see my tagline.
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.
Romney/Anybody is unacceptable to me.
He is the author of the $50 abortion, the gay marriage license, and forced healthcare.
Romney is a radical liberal.
“I think we may be beyond politics now. The coming struggle wont be political.”
Clausewitz might differ. But yeah.
Rubio is the VP. If he can take back Florida and get New York, odumbi loses.
The INELIGIBLE Romney created RomneyCARE and RomneyMarriage
and the BIG DIG coverup and scores of liberal judges
Hmmmm. He was for TARP and Sharia.
So. What is he doing on the GOP ticket.
I like what you say, Freerepublic will remain FREE REPUBLIC! uuuuuuuuUUUUUUURRRRRRAH!!!!
I really hope we get to the Convention with no one selected, it will give US a chance to get rid of Mitster.
I feel your pain but .......got to keep on.
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?
“These disasters are not screwups; they are part of a carefully orchestrated plot to dismantle capitalism and our Constitutional Republic.”
You are correct. Running a distinction without a difference candidate on the GOP ticket is a subpart of that same plan.
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.
Why would you even ask the question?
“If you are going to go third party, at least choose one that has a Conservative candidate versus trading one liberal for another.”
I am open to suggestions. PM me if you wish.
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.
