Skip to comments.We will not waste our limited resources on FR in support for a liberal progressive LIAR
Posted on 04/13/2012 12:13:14 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
A reminder for those who are not receiving the message:
Romney is a pathological compulsive liar. Lie after lie papered over with more lies. Doesnt even flinch when caught in bald faced lies, simply tells another big whopper to cover up or dodge the issue. Funny thing, the man actually seems to believe his own latest lies and simply ignores the glaring record of his past actions/lies. And you have true blue establishment elite RINO Republicans like Karl Rove enabling and backing up his lies. Their motivation is simply to hang on to power (and riches) any way they can.
Ive stated many times since Romney started running for the presidency way back when that Id never vote for him and I will not. He cannot lie his way out of his decades long record of support for abortion, Roe v Wade, planned parenthood, gay rights, gun control, global warming, amnesty, liberal judges, big government, compulsory or socialized health care (RomneyCommieCare), mandates, Keynesian economics, support and approval of TARP, bailouts, stimulus packages, i.e, every damn liberal progressive issue that comes down the pike.
Cmon. These are the reasons the tea party sprang up and the reasons he and Rove loathe the tea party and our tea party conservative candidates. Romney famously expressed his loathing for Reagan-Bush conservatism several years ago when he was trying to run to the left of Ted Kennedy and now hes cloaking himself in Reagan conservatism, knowing full well that its a lie, but he knows its the only way he can possibly win, er buy the Republican nomination.
Screw Romney!! I absolutely will not support or vote for a proven compulsive liar with a known record of abortion and big government socialism, liberal appointments, etc. He still lies about RomneyCommieCare today. Calls it a conservative solution. Get real!!
Listen to what Ronald Reagan had to say about the elites pushing socialism on America via compulsory health insurance:
Ronald Reagan speaks out against RomneyCommieCare
There will be no campaign for this Massachusetts liberal liar on FR!!
Damn the libs and RINOS, full steam ahead!!
But no matter what happens we must turn out in November to vote IN as many conservatives and vote OUT as many rats as possible at all levels of government. If we don't have a conservative at the top of the ticket we must turn out anyway and vote straight conservative DOWN ticket!! Just think of it an off cycle election and pour on the TEA!! It'll be doubly important that we control both houses of congress and as many statehouses as possible.
Restore the 10th amendment!! Impeach the leftist president whoever he may be!! Restore Liberty!! Rebellion comes from the bottom up!!
WOO HOO!! I CAN SEE NOVEMBER FROM MY HOUSE!!
No Bama!! No Romney!! Go tea party rebellion!!
Considering the current staus that's probably a good move....will be interesting to see how Texas plays out.
Infortunatley Ron and Newt are the only ones who can keep Romney from getting the delegates....perhaps they'll do just that!
Santorum split...but it was expected when he was up against PA....will be interesting to see if he releases his delegates or not. He doesn't have to.
And BTW, eat me.
I didn’t say a word about Newt now did I? Or is your reading comprehension as shallow as your principles apparently are?
I will NOT be voting for Romney under any circumstances whatsoever. I will work against him and for someone who represents my principles, even if it requires writing in a candidate.
I’m not stupid enough to allow myself to be beguiled by a game Obama, Romney and the Ruling Class set up to play against us.
I’m a conservative, I’m not crazy about Romney’s positions on some issues, but compared to Obama and the possible loss of the Country as we know it? I’ll vote for him just like Palin, Bachmann, Santorum, Newt and the Tea Party will because there’s too much at stake. I’ll vote for Conservatives for the Senate and the House and on the local level, and just hope that my Senator will be a conservative to keep the President whomever he is in check.
You are saying that Romney is a liberal based on the words of two other people. What you are crying about in the first scenario, the infamous “Etch-a-Sketch” comment is a basic reality of political campaigns. You differentiate yourself from mostly like-minded individuals in the primary. You are targeting like-minded voters. In the general election, you are campaigning against somebody who is not like-minded, and you are trying to gain the votes of the entire country and not just like-minded individuals. That’s common sense. Also, neither Romney nor his advisor said anything about “erasing his conservative positions.” What they said was that they would take a different approach, which is, you know, what every single candidate does.
Second, this just takes a quote from Norm Coleman (who is now a “Romney advisor”) and pretends that not only has Romney said it, he fully supports it. Of course, Romney has been campaigning against it the entire time. Being “advised” to do something doesn’t mean you’ll do it and it certainly doesn’t mean you think it’s a good idea.
God gave you a brain. Use it.
Michigan and Wisconsin have open primaries, something I think that needs to be addressed, you had Democrats voting for Santorum in the election to screw up the results,
As if we didn't see that possiblity four years ago when he was first elected. Didn't you see it then?
Obamas been doing exactly as he said he would do....he did not hide the fact.
Romeny wears a mask that is both deceptive and vile....and those voting for him now are equally deceived if they for a minute believe Romeny doesn't have equally have a bad plan for this nation he's concealing.....he will simply be deceptive in how he takes us down the same road as Obama. You've been deceived.
I am with you, RA.
I’ve stopped telling most people that I do not intend to vote for Romney, however.
They rant and foam at the mouth and try to tell me that this action will ensure an Obama victory, which we know is not true.
It’s always the same response: “What? But can’t do that!”
With exception, if asked, I do tell them that when I vote, I stand before God, my country and my family...and thus, do not intend to cast my ballot for a man who ran a dishonorable, unprofessional, cruel and underhanded campaign.
You cannot defeat radical socialism with “moderation”. No challenger has ever defeated a leftist incumbent who is a centrist.
[He accomplished what he did with grassroots conservative activism.]
As I posted earlier, Mary, what Santorum does in the next few days or weeks, will decide if he sacrifices Conservative values for a temporary position of power with Romney.
I truly hope you are not disappointed.
I will NEVER vote for Romney as assuredly I will NEVER vote for Ron Paul.
Romney HAS NO CHANCE of winning against Obama. He lost the moment the Ruling Class foisted his candidacy into the ring, by design.
And the dupes and the fearful just lap it up as the Politburo dishes out the circuses and creates an illusion for the hapless to feel like they have a choice.
This is a site for principled Conservatives. Your vile, insulting comments are exactly the same expressions that Rove states about Conservatives.
Your comments clearly show you to be a GOP operative --- someone "irrational and unhinged" when dealing with true Conservatives. If anything people such as you will steel the resolve of those who know that voting for Mitt is a terrible mistake.
Everyday I am talking with as many as I know to have them see that voting for Mitt will change nothing.
Mitt worships at the alter of State Power. Mitt would do absolutely nothing to turn our Republic towards Liberty.
I am astounded that after all the destruction that Mitt and he evil staff has brought against Conservatives, that any Conservative would vote for that loathsome fraud.
The best Mitt supporters have to support Mitt is to say, "He is not Obama" What an utterly pathetic reason.
Perhaps you’ve noticed, but I’d like to remind you that common sense is not allowed here.
This site is in full-blown hysteria mode.
I think the people foaming at the mouth are the ones who go after those who have made a decision that they will vote for whoever the nominee is.
It’s very easy and, with the in crowd, to say you won’t vote for the evil Romney.
You have crossed the line of conservativism to the other side by supporting Romney....I suspect that will include your money. Newt remains a candidate and so does Ron Paul....you have other choices besides Romney....so your arguments carry zip water....you have drunk at the well of the media Romney\Obama agenda to coral your vote. They got you!!!!...and now your promoting their agenda by your support of Romney.
I guess you didn't see the gutter garbage I was responding to. It's easy to see the faults of those who you disagree with while overlooking the forest in the eye of your ally. Seriously, I think he might have been drunk or something.
He WILL drop any semblance of conservatism IF he gets the nomination, another link that you refused to address.
He has instituted higher taxes and fees (by 300%), $50 taxpayer funded abortion, socialized healthcare, gun grabbing laws, homosexual marriage and adoption and appointed liberal judges in Massachusetts. NONE of that is conservative. I WILL NOT VOTE FOR A LIBERAL THAT MIRRORS OBAMA.
Romney does not yet have the nomination. It is still possible to prevent him from getting 1144. Gingrich is still in the race. And yet you think Romney is okay. NONE of those people have endorsed Romney and yet you pretend to speak for them. That's not conservative.
Have a nice day.
Really? Can I put this post on my resume? It will help the next time I'm at the Grove. I hope to someday make it to third level Build-A-Burger.
I am saying that Romney is a liberal based on his RECORD.
1. Implemented/created Gay Marriage in MA
2. Supported and forced Gay Adoption in MA
3. Supported Abortion wholeheartedly
4. Raised taxes/fees over 300% while being Governor of MA
5. Implemented a state-level Cap and Trade system.
6. Supported Man-Made Global Warming
7. Supported the Brady Bill
8. Implemented a state level Assault Weapons Bill after the Federal AWB was allowed to expire
9. Supported TARP
10. Supported Amnesty for Illegal Aliens (Citizenship for those already here)
11. Supported McCain-Kennedy(Amenesty)
12. Implemented a socialized medicine in MA called RomneyCare complete with an Individual Mandate and $50 abortions
13. Nominated 27 Democrats (out of 36 nominations) for judgeships in MA, many of them extreme left-wingers
Ya know what? I'm in good company then, I'll repeat it in case you haven't read it, Palin, Bachmann, Santorum, Newt and the Tea Party will support the eventual nominee just like me, and if it happens to be Romney that's who I'll support, as will Palin, Bachmann, Santorum, Newt and the Tea Party.
that then suggests that only Dem operatives would support Jim’s conservative stand.
I don’t think that is the case at all but I do think, based on the past posting history, the dems and obots are running rampant on FR right now and the floodgates have been opened to let them in. They are like rabid dogs. Finally they can do what they always wanted to do without fear of the zot. All of those old inactive screen names that rarely posted are now out in force and in full riot gear.
Some Conservatives are easily fooled. If somehow Mitt wins, Bork will be quickly thrown overboard. Mitt and Rove must be laughing at how easily they can hook Conservatives -- Bork is nothing but a ploy.
I just shared the OP and your response on my Facebook wall. Good job. I can STILL see November from my backyard.
Regardless of how they attempt to justify their vote to Romney they have simply taken the GOP'S/Romney/Obama bait and run with it til they got use to the hook in their mouth and it fried their brains.
They can't "get it" what the primary 'game' is about...they only know the players....and little of their policies. It's all about the win for them...not the nation. For if it was about the nation, as they so often try to attest to ...then they would be backing Newt or Paul. Instead they drank from the media well and are now dazed and forgotten who they are.
Romney is clueless when it comes to basic government knowledge.....When asked what he would do when faced with the possibility of war he said...."You call the attorneys and let the attorneys handle it."
And somehow they think Romney is the man to sit in the office of the Presidency making decisions for this country? What a tragedy of mind to imagine so.
You know trolls and I think that we have some on both sides of the issue. This isn't as bad as it got on the Giuliani threads. But it's only April. :-)
“A few unhinged wingnuts does not a party make. “
Enjoy your stay.
That's exactly what I'm saying. I think there are many here at FR who are who they say they are, but no doubt some of those vocally cheering this on? don't have good intentions at all, their intent is to drive a wedge in the Republican Party to get Obama re-elected.
What post in particular did you share? somehow I went from a quick 5 minute browse to spending almost an hour in this thread.
LOL!!! Leave it to you to find the perfect post.
Some are o bama supporter pretenders, and some just hate Mittens more than o bama, and some are just waiting for the ghost of Ronald Reagan( who they would also find flaws in). Lots of republicans and Conservatives do not like Romney, but this is the only place I have found so far on the internet where hatred of him borders on obsession.
I honestly don’t think Mittens is worth being obsessed over. I was for Palin for years, then jumped on the Cain train, but would have been fine with Perry too. My 2nd choice after Sarah would have been Michelle Bachman but that didn’t pan out and it was clear early on that she stood no chance. I have always liked Newt and I voted for him in Fl, even though I was fairly certain the snowbird Republicans would give Mittens a win here, and they did. Forget Ron Paul. I like some of his ideas but he’s just too crazy. Santorum had zero, ZERO chance to beat o bama, NONE!
Things happen, there are months to go. Romney hasn’t even secured the nomination. Now is the time to expose him and hopefully someone else will get the nod. If not, then we deal with the hand we are dealt and everyone has to do what they feel is best.
Best for me is ABO!
Only half way through, but thank you for the link!
The “reality” is that me and many others do not and will not vote for a liberal progressive liar.
Romney=Obama=a vote for crimes against humanity
You’re out of line.
You’re welcome! :-)
Pssst! Joe. The name calling was mutual.
You fool, Congress is already implementing health care, to the tune of a couple hundred billion dollars. Boehner is a lying sack.
Conservatives refusing to vote for a full-blown liberal liar is “no common sense” and “hysteria”??
What makes no sense and is hysterical is anyone who thinks voting for a leftwing progressive liar is the way to save the conservative movement.
Those people are literally insane.
I would prefer Newt to Romney by miles and miles, but I have a hard time seeing how that happens. I agree with you about Paul - he basically doesn’t count. That leaves Newt and Romney, and Romney’s got a huge lead as well as an apologetic support group (Fox News and most of the more mainstream conservative media). That’s hard to beat.
I find that I must take exception with one very important aspect of your comments.
I am no fan of Mitt. There are several others who I would prefer to see as the GOP nominee.
No one is questioning your right to allocate FR's resources as you see fit. It is YOUR website. And I am in 100% agreement with your statement that we must work even harder to elect TRUE conservatives at all levels..local, state, as well as to Congress. Freepers should donate DIRECTLY whatever they choose to candidates they believe, and can support, and NOT to any campaign committees.
However, I must question your decision NOT to vote for Romney under any circumstances. I myself will hold my nose and vote for him. I would remind you of the following:
1. The next president may will get to nominate anywheres from 1-3 justices to the Supreme Court.
2. I am in Florida. There is no way on God's green earth that Obama can win the election without Florida. As his poll numbers have sunk, Dems are now,( probably to delude themselves) starting to float the idea that Obama has "alternate paths" to an Electoral College majority. This is lunacy. The idea that Obama could lose Florida, yet somehow win, say, North Carolina, and Indiana is at best, a 1000:l shot.
3. I would remind you of the 2000 election results.
Assume, hypothetically that you had been as vehemently opposed to Bush as you are to Romney.
If just 25% of Florida's 2000+ Freepers had taken your advice and NOT voted for Bush, then Al Gore would be president, and then, truly, God help these United States.
I would respectfully suggest that you re-examine and rethink your position in this regard.
Another 4 years of Obama in the WH, even with Republican control of both the House and Senate, will do irreperable harm to the country we both love. That is a given, an absolute. As bad as he has been to date, after November, when he won't have to be concerned with being re-elected, he will do far, far, worse. Heck, he told it to the Russians in the last "open-mike" episode.
You can't compare this to what you fear Romney "might" do if he is elected. There is no option, except to vote for Romney, albeit very grudgingly, and with many reservations.
You know you have inspired me to write something that might wind up with me taking an obligatory week or so off.
Hey, walked the lightning edge before and probably will again ;)
Using terms like that on here make you sound like a troll...... just sayin’. Only moonbats use that term.
If you found the info useful then I’m happy! :-)
I will not vote for Romney under any circumstances because it would be morally repugnant to me.
Also Romney is the candidate LEAST able to beat Obama, by the way. He is the designated loser by the GOPe.
For that matter what will you do if *all* of them endorse Romney *and* campaign for him???
Will you leave the country? Move to New Zealand,as Rush sometimes (jokingly) says?
“wingnuts” is a DU term I think
