As opposed to a 6-3 liberal majority on the court appointed by Romney?
Romney has appointed liberals at a 6:1 ratio in MA.
You’ve left us conservatives with no options whatsoever, and bad things always happen to the republican party when they screw conservatives over and they abandon core party planks.
Sometimes that means the rise of a third party, and sometimes, like in 1856 - it means the complete destruction of the party.
Like the Whigs, we have 2 pro slavery parties. 2 parties that support abortion, homosexual marriage and forcing people to pay for health care, and exactly zero parties that support constitutional governance.
One of the pro slavery parties needs to die. By nominating Romney, the republicans have put their hands up and said, “me! Me!” I want to die.
The Senate approves SCOTUS nominees. The president appoints, but the Senate approves.
A Republican Senate could (in theory at least) pressure a president Romney to choose moderate SCOTUS nominees. I’m not so naive to expect conservatives, but he could be pressured to pick moderates.
Obama on the other hand will pick a straight communist. A Republican Senate would reject him, but then have to take the 2nd or 3rd choice. They won’t fight him forever. ALL of Obama’s nominees will be solid card-carrying red-diaper communists. Bank on it.
So yes, I will take Romney with some small chance the whore can be bribed or bullied into nominating moderates, over a principalled Marxist Muslim like Obama, who will stand firm on communist after communist.
Oh and I do agree with you that the GOP needs to die. I just don’t agree on the timing. We can’t do that while a sitting radical communist is in the White House. We need to get rid of him first, then kill the GOP.
