Conservatives Continue to Resist Mitt 'Anyone But Obama' Romney
Breitbart ^ | April 8, 2012 | Susan Berry

Posted on 04/09/2012 5:44:44 PM PDT by CaptainKrunch

If you have not been a supporter of Mitt Romney’s since the start of the GOP primary campaign, you may be one of those stubborn conservatives, those obstinate Tea Partiers, or those recalcitrant Constitutionalists, who are yet refusing to commit to Gov. Romney at this midpoint of the nomination race. Perhaps you are tired of hearing words like “coalesce,” “electable,” “inevitable,” and “presumptive,” and phrases like, “It’s time to get behind Mitt,” or “We really have to decide so we can ‘focus on’ Obama.”

Sorry, the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the stated purposes of the U.S. Constitution, and its explicit, imperative provisions, are my plumb line. Not compromised Republican politicians.

We’ve seen through hard experience over decades where your way of thinking leads, and it’s nowhere good for this free republic.

It’s a culture of total compromise, in a day when only the revival of a political culture of principle can possibly save this country from complete ruin.

Funny, I don’t disagree with anything you have said here...

I guess the difference is that I do NOT want Obama elected under any circumstances because of his ideas regarding the Constitution!

Yes, compromise does actually suck, especially year after year it seems! I also hate all of these crooked and far from conservative Republicans - I just know that this time, they are our savior against the Obama administration!

If you think Mitt Romney is anyone's savior, you have more problems than I'm going to possibly be able to talk you out of.

From the home page: “Please enjoy our forum, but also please remember to use common courtesy when posting and refrain from posting personal attacks, profanity, vulgarity, threats, racial or religious bigotry, or any other materials offensive or otherwise inappropriate for a conservative family audience”

Oh, I am not the language police. I was just giving you, a newcomer, a helpful suggestion as you obviously did not read the posting rules of the forum~These are located on the home page. BTW, Your language is not going to win you any points around here—just weakens your arguments.

The line has been crossed by the GOP as much as the DNC and there is no turning back now. Both parties have betrayed us the average citizen. The GOP rigged the system to favor a moderate liberal non-conservative establishment candidate who does not oppose Obama, but agree almost 70% with him.

At this time when both parties are no longer defending freedom and attack those who try to defend freedom then it is time to admit that we are screwed no matter who the winner in November is between the R and the D for president.

The country dies either way now. Only Hope is to vote principal over party and plan the next step which should be to form a new party.

It is too late in the game now after all that has gone on to support Romney when all the past year, people have grown to dislike him even more than before.

That is why 13 Republican primary states voted against him. Obama and Romney are both bad and indefensible.

I myself without a doubt will vote third party for president.

We can take of Mittens on our own

Yeah, in an open convention, by denying him the nomination.

So get out there, work for Santorum, and play for time and for conservative votes, to stem the flood of white-flag-wavers.

(Some people talk big until Poppy Bush clears his throat and snaps his fingers to indicate Play Time is over. Then they start waving white flags like the French Army.)

I simply said that any Republican is better than Obama.

Which is not true. Romney and Ron Paul are not better than Obama.

Michele Bachmann is better than Obama.

Newt Gingrich is better than Obama.

So are Rick Santorum, Rick Perry (well, sorta), and even, arguably, Huntsman (maybe).

And that's not even mentioning, not even in passing, the love child of Theodore Roosevelt out of Annie Oakley, the direct lineal descendant of Molly Pitcher and Joan of Arc.

See there, you knew exactly who I am talking about.

the grand old plantation

GOP, the Grand Old Plantation.... LOL. I love it. I'm thinking that on November 7, 2012, the day after the Election, there needs to be a serious movement to form "THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF AMERICA". And, the only person I can think of right now who has the balls to spearhead that movement is Sarah Palin.

I’ve been posting for 14 years here on FR, though you would not know it based on my profile.

It’s comical when people call me “noob”. Now I know how that attractive thin woman felt when she put on a fat suit and went to job interviews with a hidden camera and mic.

It’s interesting how people get used to being treated a certain way. Both good and bad.

"NcCain was the first excrement sandwich, Willard is the second."

Some of us disagree. Bob Dole came earlier. And I put the first serving at GHW Bush. He only looked conservative because he was contrasted with the dominant liberals of 1988-92. Yes, I voted for him twice, but I wish now that I had voted for a non-Perot third party. Sooner or later, we have to take a stand. Sooner is much better.

This is not the time for a third party movement.

If there was to be one, it should have started in 2008 when it might have had a slim possibility of succeeding.

All the Ross Perot campaign did was give us Bill Clinton and his lovely wife, Hillary.

And Ross Perot was a Ron Paul-type candidate who had some good ideas everyone identified with but he was a despot and not someone I would want as president.

The truth of the matter is that all of the third party people have some dream of a combination of Reagan/Charleton Heston and Jesus. There is no person currently living on earth that would satisfy all the third party people. the movement would fracture and die.

Right now, we have to face some cold, hard facts. We are going to nominate a man who is not as conservative as we want. Going over and over his faults is doing nothing to help the country.

I don’t care what you or anybody says about Romney, he is better by far than Obama. Romney’s worst moments are better than Obama’s best moments.

So, start now. Start up looking for an ideal candidate. Start in the Republican party because that will be your only hope of succeeding.

But don’t start by voting for Obama because that’s what you’ll be doing if you sit this one out or vote 3rd party.
