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!!
There is no evidence of that. There are many GOP Senators who will vote to confirm anyone that is sent up.
If Romney is the sitting president, what chance do we have of covincing the GOP that they need to nominate conservatives?
“You nailed it. Im not convinced Romney is trying to flat out destroy our Republic. I KNOW that is Obamas goal and he is going to succeed in his 2nd term, absent veto-proof FOP majorities in both houses.
A 4 year old knows the right choice here.”
You cant possibly believe any of the conservative SC justices will step down if Obama is reelected.
But if Romney is elected then the Supreme Court will get tipped badly when two conservative Justices retire in the next 4 years and are replaced by liberal Romney appointees tipping the balance to the liberals for generations
not supporting. will have to vote though. always do. always will.
And that is the same as a vote for Obama...no difference!
Anything with an R behind it’s name.
You're giving him too much credit. He was largely a figurehead, just like Cadillac Deval. The legislature calls the shots in MA.
“Looking” at Mitt’s actual in office record and not seeing a litany of things that are the polar opposite of what is good for America is at best, an act of willful blindness.
Speaking of 4 year olds, he governed like one having a ‘feel good’ episode. As a result, Mass is 2nd behind only Cali in the race to become the USSA capitol.
So tell me again why Mitt Romney is the ‘Better’ choice. Tell me ONE thin he’s done to help promote what America once stood for. JUST ONE.
Yes, I agree. We have a huge fight ahead to get a conservative party and let the GOP fund their own Chapstick pool to keep kissing democrat butt.
But that fight is not for 2012. Triage determines that we must stop obama first.
GINGRICH ALL THE WAY, Jim, he’s all that we have left on the national level! -JS
You’re letting your emotional distaste for Romney get in the way of your rational mind.
Romney will overturn Obamacare. Obama won’t.
Romney will not take away your guns or facilitate the U.N. or anybody else in doing so.
Romney will do nothing to increase the number of abortions in America.
Obama will do by fiat, Executive Order, Czar Regulation, and any other means possible to end run the Constitution.
Those are not concerns regarding a Romney Presidency!
Mitt ain’t my favorite, but he’s not the hazard you pretend.
I don’t think Romney would do any of that. I think Romney likes ObamaCare
Grassroots activism at the House and Senate level. For these races politics is still local.
And a conservative Congress will help "guide" Romney should he win the nomination and the election.
We did it in 2010 and we can do again in 2012 and 2014 and beyond.
We are not powerless.
Amen to that; consider me a rebel! I absolutely will not ever vote for Romney. He's about three bridges too far on the “better of two evils” argument. The GOP establishment wants him, well they can vote for him without me and my stupid, backwards, embarrassing ideals. If they somehow ran Hillary, I wouldn't vote for her either, though I concede she is probably slightly to the right of Obama. I'll be writing in a conservative.
Wish we had a FR primary to determine who to write in (hint, hint). I'd like those of us doing that to actually be noticed, and the best way is to write in the same, very conservative person who wouldn't likely be written in otherwise. Any ideas?

You’d think it’s obvious, but it apparently isn’t. Obama’s record is now long and it’s been incredibly destructive. Even a biased reading of Romney’s record is nowhere near that of Obama, and with Romney my second-to-last choice I will acknowledge he isn’t a great candidate. Still, with that said, it’s almost impossible to believe that people don’t see that.
I truly believe that a significant majority of the third-party types here are Obama plants. There’s no other logical explanation.
We knew, most just did not want to believe it.
Romney is a radical communist Muslim?
I performed my act of resistance this afternoon. I sent in my 6th donation to Newt.
Newt is the ONE chance we have, right now, to right the GOP ship.
Newt’s “baggage” is a load of feathers compared to Willard’s.The number of Freepers on here who would rather throw in the towel, wail that it is all over, and sit out November to protect their “cherished principles”, rather than to get behind the best chance for our views to be recognized and promoted in 2012, is sickening.
The choice does not have to be Romney, or Obama.
There is still time for it to be Newt.
Newt is the last Conservative standing, and there is a small window of hope for us all. We need to take advantage of that.
And if that fails, then and only then we can look at each other and say we did everything we could.
Newt wasn’t my first choice, and he wasn’t the choice of many here.
After Sarah and Herman, Newt was it for me.And he looked like the Titanic 100 years ago—taking on water fast.He was going to be outspent and ignored, and the strongest candidate we have would be gone in short order.
But that was so before 2:30 pm today.
Now is a new political reality and we need to come to come to grips with it.
If Newt was OK a few months ago on here, why would he not be even MORE OK in the light of what has transpired today?
Newt means to go to Tampa, and I aim to help him.

“I truly believe that a significant majority of the third-party types here are Obama plants. Theres no other logical explanation.”
It’s like there has been an Operation Chaos going on here throughout the primary process....
Amen to that. I have this pleasant dream in which, less than a year from now, after Romney is sworn in, Speaker Boehner and GOP Senate Majority Leader McConnell pull him aside and say, “You realize, Mr. President, that you work for us?” and that Romney replies, “Well, golly, what is it you want me to do?”
Its sad that Santorum has suspended his campaign. I blame Gingrich 100%. Had he quit after Santorums famous one-day trifecta win in MO, CO, and MN, Romney would have lost in his hometown of MI and almost surely in OH. That massive momentum that Santorum would have gotten from those victories would have propelled him to the top. That said, I don’t think FR supporters of Gingrich had much or any influence. Gingrich was polling in single digits in MI and even as of now he vows to continue his quixotic campaign. I will vote for Romney if only because a second-term Obama is too horrible to behold especially with the lasting impact he could make by appointments to the lower federal court judiciary and the US Supreme Court. This is an election in which we cannot stand neutral and profess love for God and country at the same time.
Count me in Jim
Good to hear. Thanks.
After four more years of obama ther won’t be enough left in 2016 to matter.
Romney created Romneycare, the model for Obamacare.
Tell me something that Romney has done that is conservative. Simply running his mouth doesn't count.
Where was Sarah Palin, Jim Demint, Mike Pence - when we really needed them?.”
I like Palin, DeMint and Pence and would have voted for any of them vs Romney but they have shown that they are not the leaders that many around here think/wish they were. Palin didn’t want to run, which is fine. It’s a huge decision and an incredible sacrifice but there was nothing keeping her from endorsing someone 6 months ago, 3 months ago, even as late as February. She had a chance to be kingmaker but chose not to. To me that was a terrible failure of leadership and the consequence is Mitt Romney.
"There's not a dime's worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican parties," a line that he had first used in 1966, when his first wife, Lurleen Burns Wallace, ran successfully for governor against the Republican James D. Martin.
Predictable responses to making a stand for conservatism, which I am immune to:
A.) “He’s the better of two evils”
B.) “But this is the most important election ever!”
C.) “You must be some sort of Troll!”
Yawn. We all have to draw a line somewhere, and being slightly to the right of a communist is too thin for this freeper. I won’t vote for a guy with a proven record of being pro abortion, gun-control, gay-rights, and big governement solutions, despite what he says now that he is asking for my vote. I’m done following the Orwellian Walking Pigs of the Republican establishment.
If that makes me a Troll, I’ll find a bridge.
Romney will not beat Obama.
I believe it is “second” party time.
No, Romney will not nominate a conservative. That is not the point.
The point is that Obama will nominate ideological communists like ACLU memberes and Green Party members and like the Progressive Caucus members. The BEST we can hope from Romney is that he nominates wishy washy RINOs to the SCOTUS.
I hope it is not lost on you that 3 new SCOTUS justices who are wishy washy RINOs is a better thing than 3 new Hard Communists on the SCOTUS.
The RINOs will bend and slash the Constitution. The hard Communists will join with Sortamywhore and Kagan to eliminate the Constitution.
Get ready for Posse Commitatus to go extinct. Get ready for the militia clause to color all new gun decisions by the SCOTUS. Get ready for God to be banished completely from schools and work. completely.
A hard communist dominiated SCOTUS will be dead serious and not just kidding around. They won’t be “well the Constitution is a living document”. They will absolutely decimate the US Constitution and guess what, their recorded rulings will then become Precident. The commie dominated lower courts will take the ball and run with it.
Kiss your nation good bye.
Here's a better quote.
"The Democratic and Republican parties are two wings on the same bird of prey."
-- Patrick Buchanan, 2000
DJ, it doesn’t matter to these people. Just because a candidate has a proven record of governing against the GOP platform is no reason for them to think that unicorns with farie dust won’t suddenly appear and POOF! he will magically start doing so.
Isn’t it obvious? When Obama pushes gays on us and the military, that’s evil. When Romney does it, it’s ‘different’. Same for the rest of his record.
So if you don’t get in line and vote for everything you stand against, YOU are the problem. Because it’s a “Republican” you are voting for. Doesn’t matter that it’s the same agenda as the dems.
No need to dwell on the past. We all must come together now and get behind the GOP nominee Mitt Rommmm.....ah, forget that noise. How depressing.
At least there is a new episode of “Top Shot” on tonight.
I will be voting country over party in this election, and against Obama. Romney is many things, and is definitely not my first choice, but he has at least one redeeming feature... he isnt Obama.
Plenty of people aren’t 0bomba but are still leftist pukes. Romney will lose anyway. Having Romney as the candidate is like having no candidate.
Wishful thinking I fear. They will not declare it unconstitutional, at most they may peel out the mandate which will not stop it.
Thank you for being a principled conservtive. There is no way that I can support Romney he socialist sleaze bag. I really appreciate you making a home for true conservatives who arent willing to whore themselves out for party over principle.
That being said, I’ll be glad when you rid this place of the Romneybots and political whores. Let them find another site to whine about conservatives not supporting their gun grabbing baby killing socialist candidate.
Boot them. I would be happy to never have to read another post accusing me of supporting Obama, just because I don’t bow their brand of whoring.
I’m the one who supported the strongest not romney, not obama. I’m done here. :)
You want to push Romney, good luck, but you’ll do so on your own. I want no part of him or his policies. Never have.
He’s not going to beat Obama, and it will mean 4 more years.
There is a logical explanation... A significant majority of the folks here are conservatives not republicans.
I know this is a hard concept to understand, but I’ll try anyway. One of two people is going to be elected in November. It’s either going to be Obama, the single most radical leftist President we’ve ever had, or Mitt Romney, a moderate who’s changed positions a few times. Voting is not a difficult concept - you choose the candidate who best represents your views.
Apparently, however, lots of people here have stricter requirements for their Presidential candidates than they do for their spouses. This is why the concept of universal suffrage is a bad one - far and away, the individual voter is far too stupid to comprehend representative government.
“You cant possibly believe any of the conservative SC justices will step down if Obama is reelected.”
I most certainly do think that a conservative justice or two may leave in the next four years, regardless of who is president. Just look at Clarence Thomas- he is an elderly, overweight, black male. Whether Clarence is willing or not, God may “step him down”. I do NOT want Obama picking his replacement.
He is not Obama.That is the only reason I will vote for him....a vote against Obama.
