To hell with the GOP-e. Barring a miracle, they got their big government, unconstitutional mandate loving, socialist abortionist Obama-lite RINO on the ballot, they can now get him elected.

We are the resistance!!

Shove him down our throats today, we shove him up your donkeys in November!!

I can see November from my house!!

Jim, with all due respect you have no one to blame for this calamity except for yourself. On February 8, Romney was effectively defeated for the nomination when Santorum won a trifecta and began his surge. But it seems protecting your pride and ego was more important that stopping Mitt Romney.

The Santorum supporters were out here day after day fighting in the rebellion. What exactly did you do when Rick came out as the leading conservative, if not on Super Tuesday, then after KS, AL, and MS? Did you do anything to help Rick? Nope, you helped split the vote because you wouldn’t back down from Newt.

In my opinion, you owe Rick Santorum and his supporters an explanation and an apology for your inaction. In fact, since June, I’ve watched your site destroy the likes of Bachmann, Cain, as well as Santorum with some of the most vicious attacks and remarks that would be more appropriate for DU and the HuffPost.

This Election was lost on February 22, 2012, the day of the Arizona debate. The fact Rick recovered at all was a miracle in itself. If conservatives had coalesced around him in MI, OH, AK, WI, and WA, Santorum would have won. Additionally, Rick would have gotten delegate majorities in AL and MS, but with Newt in the race, allowed Romney to pick up a 1/3 of the delegates. This was well known BEFORE these primary races, yet it was IGNORED. All this talk of some BS brokered convention that wasn’t going to happen because the math wasn’t there.

I fully explained what was happening when Santorum surged in February. Many conservative voters did not like or trust Newt to act on anything. Santorum was the last hope of many Bachmann, Cain, and Perry supporters. When other bitter Newt people started trashing Santorum and bringing his numbers down, I knew what was going to happen: those people were going to give up. The fact Rick recovered somewhat is a testament to his strength.

Despite the contrary remarks, Santorum and Newt pulled the same voting demographics; Conservative, Males, 30-50, under 100K Income, Tea Party Supporters, Evangelicals. The difference is Rick got much more in these categories and WAY more in women and Evangelicals than Newt. Compare that to Romney, who’s core base was Moderate/Liberal, Women, Seniors >65, over 100K Income, Hispanics/Asians, Oppose Tea Party. There is virtually no overlap with Rick/Newt voters and Romney voters. If any Newt people were voting for Romney, it was to spite Santorum, otherwise Santorum would have gotten almost all of Newt’s voters.

So Congratulations! You got what you wanted by sitting on the sidelines and refusing to help Santorum. With allies like this, it’s amazing ANY conservatives even bother to run at all. I’ve seen the writing on the wall. Eventually, Allen West, Marco Rubio, and eventually Sarah Palin will all get torn to shreds by so-called “conservatives” here calling them out for being RINOs.

I had high hopes for this election cycle last June. I really thought we had a chance of getting a conservative at the top of the ticket. But this website destroyed whatever hope I had. From the very beginning, the conservatives got ripped to shreds here. First it was Bachmann “Ed Rollins”, then Cain “Sexual Deviant”, Perry “Moron”, Santorum “Saint Rick, Sanctimonius, etc”, with all of them at one time or another being accused of being a stalking horse for Romney.
Yet, go back to MI, OH, AK, and WI and it is clear to see who the stalking horse really was.

Anyway, I’m out of here.

Look, I'm not defending Mitt's past actions...but I do think he has moved further to the right, and will stay there. Part of that is based on hope, I admit it, bugt also, he's a pragmatist, and knows which way the winds are blowing in the GOP..strongly conservative...

To those who correctly point out that his judical picks while Gov of Mass were, shall we say, from a conservative perspectgive..less than stellar, Mitt has said, that given the state of the sate of Mass..heavily Dem, heavily liberal, and the state legislature dominated by tghe Dems..his universe of possible choices, and especially those who could be confirmed, was severely limited...he may well have done the best possible.

And I do think that a much more conservative House and Senate will help shape Mitt's agenda..

No, Romney won’t pick conservatives for the highest court, but the alternative is Obama’s 3 new communists and Muslims.

I can see it now “The GOP is chosing to block my nominee who is the first top qualified MUSLIM female to be nominated to the Supreme Court”. GOP caves. We get Sharia law on the SCOTUS.

Now compare that to Romney.

Yes, Romney’s SCOTUS nominees will suck but they will not be the radical communist activists that Obama will chose. Think of 3 more people miles to the left of Bader Ginsberg. There are your new Obama nominees.

I am either choosing Col. West or Newt Gingrich for her V.P.

I think she planned to choose Col. West.

Romney's just like the SCoaMF, Barky 0bama. Romney will rehire Van Jones, Eric Holder, Cass Sunstein and their ilk, will encourage class and race wars, will back stab Israel and other allies, will have rappers and other garbage in the WH, will take months of vacays and golf days each year, hates America and Christians (especially white ones), has a disgusting grifter for a wife who will vacay and partay on your dime (including Lobster and Kobe Beef as a daily course--also on your dime), is Chicago corrupt, lies like a dog on a rug, is a narcissist etc. ad nauseum.

FWIW From the ‘60’s when my father was in local politics and I saw what the PA republican party did to undermine him I swore I would never register republican.

It’s why I have an animosity toward Hilman/RINO republicans.

When Scranton/Schaffer/Hillman promised to support my CONSERVATEVE dad and then backed out in a way that left him twisting in the wind, I vowed to never support them.

I will agree that Romney is liberal, but one thing he is not is ANTI-American.

Please elaborate. What exactly does this liberal stand for that is not ANTI-American? Perhaps your definition of what America represents differs from mine. By large, all things that push towards a progressive liberal agenda push away from a Constitutional American foundation. That's why they call it "progressive" and "liberal". Romney is woefully inadequate to be the standard bearer for anything conservative ... anything "PRO-American". Romney doesn't "hate" America ... Neither does Obama. So what? Neither is willing, even capable, of returning America to her conservative values, because they do not share them.

You know he will. His next choice will be a black lesbian.

That's funny because that's probably what Romney will do with his allegiance to the Gay Agenda, implementing the first Gay Marriage in all of the US, and then nominating 27 Democrats out of 36 nominations, many of them far left-wing, progressive liberals, just like himself.

Legal analysts say candidate Romney is different from Gov. Romney.

Liberty Counsel Action Vice President Matt Barber said Romney’s appointments were constitutional “living document” poster children.

“Many of Romney’s appointments were not only liberal, not only Democrats, but were radical counter-constitutionalists. How on earth can we expect that, as president, he would be any different?” Barber asked rhetorically.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Mitt Romney’s actions as governor scream from the rooftops that he cannot be trusted with this most important of presidential responsibilities.”

Barber cites two specific examples of Romney’s radical appointments.

“As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney not only failed in this regard, he appointed a number of very liberal, if not radical, ‘living, breathing’-minded judges to the bench,” Barber said.

“Two that come to mind were extreme homosexualists Marianne C. Hinkle and Stephen Abany,” he said. “They both had a long history of pro-gay activism, yet Romney didn’t hesitate to put them on the bench.”

“These are people who outrageously believe the postmodern notion that newfangled ‘gay rights’ trump our constitutionally guaranteed First Amendment rights,” he said.

Baldwin agreed, citing Romney’s statements about the two requirements he actually used when selecting judges.

“Romney did focus on two criteria: their legal experience and whether they would be tough on crime. In other words, the nominee could be a gay activist or a pro-big government, pro-quota, pro-gun control Democrat Party hack who detests every judicial principle treasured by our founding fathers,” Baldwin said. “But if he happens to be tough on crime and have prosecutorial experience, he gets past the Romney filter. Many of Romney’s nominees fit that description.”

Hell yes! No RINO for me, thank you. Why vote for someone who is no better than Obama? What we really need to do is gather around a TRUE Conservative candidate, no matter the cost. The GOP will keep using us as pawns, ignoring us and running liberal RINO candidates until we SHOW THEM that they can’t just beat us around and expect us to vote for whatever fraud they decide to run that year.

My vote will almost certainly be third party, this year.

Hello Jim, I’ve been a lurker and a fan for many years and I registered so I could post in this thread.

I live in a country (the UK) where the “conservative” choice supports gay marriage, socialised healthcare and the “right” of unions to make domestic labour almost prohibitively costly to employers.

I emphasize that this is the “conservative” candidate (David Cameron.)

Romney might seem like a decent option when compared with Obama, but my country - a surveillance state in which the use of “reasonable force” in defending your life and property was only made official policy a couple of years ago - is a prime example of what happens when you compromise your principles and start rationalising voting for the lesser of two evils.

I lived in the US for nearly 15 years and I’m not alone in believing it is a beacon of genuine freedom and liberty. I’m not trying to tell people to “stay home”.. mostly because I don’t want to be labeled as a troll.. but the country where I live is a prime example of what happens when good people don’t draw the line in the sand and stick by it.
