Read the entire message AMPU.

I would vote for any of the Democrats he mentioned over Obama, so of course I would vote Romney over Obama.

This is bad comedy. Like clockwork, after every major event in this campaign, two things happen. The first is that newb and previously undetected Romneybots break cover and rehash the litany of feces as to why we MUCH! vote for the lesser evil.

The second is that someone points out they will write in Palin and the remaining PDSers regurgitate their litany of why that’s so terrible a thing...complete with just enough snark to avoid the voltage.

If only we could harness these two events to a turbine, we could solve the global energy picture.

They are at war with conservatives, as you can see by them trying to redistrict Allen West out of existence. Do you want to surrender to them or fight back?

They're doing that with Ann Marie Buerkle in CNY as well, by redistricting to include Ithaca in her district.

She is one AWESOME rep. I haven't found a thing that she's taken a position on that I disagree with yet. Conservative as they come.

One issue is immigration.

So you would believe a proven, documented liar like Mitt Romney who both supported outright the McCain-Kennedy attempt at Amnesty and has stated separately that he supports allowing those already here to be legalized?

The same guy who told the following damnable lies at CPAC in January 2012?

1. "I have always been Pro-Life"
2. "I was a severely conservative governor of MA"

You would believe the words of a liar who routinely practices character assasination and bearing false witness against his neighbor as he continually lies about both Rick and Newt?

Come on, are you really a conservative?

"Thanks GOP."

Bitch about the Vichy GOP all you like but they can count and they counted which folks would come out in the primaries to vote or to work for their candidate.

So, they knew it was the right time to put Bishop Romney at the top of the ticket. Only with King Barry as his opponent does he have even a shadow of a chance at winning and it was "his turn". If the number of people getting involved and working had reflected a change in who was going to decide the primaries, they'd have at least been more neutral. The Vichy are corrupt Nazi loving bastards, but they're not stupid and the more than they want Bishop Romney or anything else, they want enough control to get their share of the graft and extortion payments.

If there had been much difference in who was showing up to help in primaries, there would have been just as much difference in the way the Vichy went about promoting or not promoting Bishop Romney.

Then I guess this is "just a picture?"

HELL NO. Pictures are worth 1,000 words. Just because that shot of Newt (and did you watch the video clips?) doesn't jive with your fantasy, it doesn't mean it can simply be dismissed. There is a peculiarly widespread case of political amnesia with regard to old Newt 'round here. In many ways he's just as bad as mittens. Amnesty, for instance.

"This guy is such a disaster."

That's why I couldn't get to the point of caring that he's Mormon. Before you even get to the point of looking at what he says he believes his own record shouts him down.

He's not pro-life which IMHO, means he starts with two strikes already and gets the third strike if there's any alternative that is pro-life. On top of that, his record looks exactly like the record of a dozen democrat fascists who brag about their record every election cycle to get democrat votes. The same is true for Lawyer Ricky, though, and look at the nitwits who championed him just because he can talk the talk even though he's never walked the walk.

OK, I get it. You are not adverse to voting for liberals because you quake in fear at Obama.

Please find some real men to help you through this time in history. You may need them to defend you before this is over.

In the meantime, quit fraternizing with liberals for your own good.

Since there are 46% of the delegates yet to be won in the remaining primaries, and since Romney's horrendous record has been continuously posted on FreeRepublic for a long time, I have to conclude you are neither a conservative and probably working for either an RNC(GOP-E Redundant I know) aligned organization or an Romney aligned organization either as a volunteer or paid, which is it?

If you were a conservative, you wouldn't even be whispering support for Romney either now or in the future knowing what you know about his record until the nomination was won, and even then, if you really believed in your conservative principles, it would take a lot to get you to vote for him.

I will never vote for a lying, Left-Wing, Progressive Liberal like Mitt Romney, neither should any other sincere conservative.

Then you either do not know Mitt Romney's record or are purposefully ignorant.

There is not a single thing in Mitt Romney's record that recommends him to conservative, Newt has plenty in his past to recommend him to conservatives.

In terms of an actual objective comparison, there is no comparison.

One is a lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal, the other is a conservative that has occasionally, rarely, gone off the conservative path.

No comparison at all!

I know all about Romney's record. Gun-grabbing, abortion-cheering, fag-supporting...The whole ugly picture. He sucks.

But that doesn't mean Newt is that much better. Sure he's not as bad as Romney, but it isn't that hard to be better than Romney. If he has good things in his past, he has a crapload of bad stuff. He divorced his dying wife while she lay in the hospital. Is that man you'd vote for?

I can't vote for Romney, I can't vote for Newt.

So what if the GOP officially changed their platform to say they are pro-choice, support legalizing homosexual marriage, and are for higher tax rates on millionaires? Would you still support and vote for GOP-endorsed candidates? Or would you tell them they no longer have your vote until they change to a conservative platform? This is where we separate the cowards who will compromise their principles for “security” and those who are willing to go down fighting for what’s right. Romney is taking the GOP solidly in that direction if not further left. If he is successful, that will only embolden the people who want to liberalize the party.

He divorced his dying wife while she lay in the hospital.

Lord, Lord! You ARE clueless. His first wife is still alive. They decided to divorce months before her surgery. You bought the MSM lie hook, line & sinker!

Jackie Gingrich Cushman: About Newt’s ‘deathbed divorce’

For years, I have thought about trying to correct the untrue accounts of this hospital visit. After all, I was at the hospital with them, and saw and heard what happened. But I have always hesitated, as it was a private family matter and my mother is a very private person. In addition, for the four people involved, it was one of a million interactions and was not considered a defining event by any of us.

So, to correct the record, here is what happened: My mother, Jackie Battley Gingrich, is very much alive, and often spends time with my family. I am lucky to have such a “Miracle Mom,” as I titled her in a column this week.

My mother and father were already in the process of getting a divorce, which she requested.

Dad took my sister and me to the hospital to see our mother.

She had undergone surgery the day before to remove a tumor.

The tumor was benign.

Oh, come on, Newt and his wife’s own children and the facts can’t possibly compete with what the lamestream media and Newt’s political opponents have said. They obviously know more about the facts of what goes on in Newt’s personal life than his own family. Besides we all have a right to spread gossip about the most private of matters within someone’s family and judge them on it.

Well that lie has already been disproved by DJ MacWoW, so why don't your prove your assertion, using their records, that Newt is not much better. We're waiting.

I can't vote for Romney, I can't vote for Newt.

It constantly surprises me that people posting on FR buy into crap from the MSM.

Not only that but you had people still defending Drudge as "just posting the news" after it was obvious to anyone with a brain he was operating RNN, the Romney News Network. It's sad that people are so limited in their perceptive abilities that they think whatever they see on the "magic box" screen is a window into reality. As long as people don't learn how to be skeptical of every form of media and spot bias, the media is going to retain this massive power to engage in mass mind control. And we've now seen that all "conservative" media will be co-opted by the Republican power-brokers for their own agenda, whether it's conservative or not.
