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!!
The primary is over.
If Dubya got us Obama, can you imagine what we will get after 8 years of Romney?
I've got children. There are things more important to me than smug self-congratulations.
"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
“At least if Obama wins we know our House will unite to stop him from doing liberal things solely for political gain.”
I’d like to think you’re right, but he’s done a huge number of liberal things solely for political gain in past 3+ years...with or without a Republican majority in the House.
I doubt that the founder of FR is quite insane.
I would ask you : Would you rather have Obama as president with a hostile, overwhelmingly conservative House and Senate, or Romney, a progressive RINO, with a compliant, go-along-to-get-along Congress?
I think the former is the lesser of two evils. Either way, we are in for a rough four years until we get another chance to elect a conservative POTUS (Barring some miracle at the convention.)
You can go do that but the fact that you have to hold your nose means many thousands of republicans didn't even go that far. They stayed home instead.
Everytime I went to vote and held my nose the candidate I voted for lost. Also the one time I didn't even go that far to vote for the RINO he lost as well and NOT by one vote but in a landslide.
The point is. When you feel like you have to hold your nose to vote for the man. He's going to lose because you are not the only one with those feelings.
If Romney gets the nomination and we know we have to hold our noses to vote for him, it's best to stay home. He's going to lose anyways. Guaranteed!
Romney will not be able to beat Obama (unless something very tragic happens in this nation - I mean very very tragic).
I stayed home once before and the republican candidate lost.
I held my nose and voted for McCain. And he lost.
Best to hope Newt to beat Romney because Romney cannot beat Obama. Romney has not only burnt too many bridges but has also taken every stance on every issue. Because of that and the videos that will expose him as a flip flopping liar he will lose because Mitt Romney is the republican version of John Kerry.
They both want gun control.
They both support abortion.
They both support liberal judges.
They both supported TARP.
They both supported the nationalization of GM. oops I mean the "Structured backruptcy" of GM
They both support mandated medical insurance.
They both supported the stimulus.
On other issues I have no frickin' idea as Romney keeps changing his position.
I will not vote for either one as I see no real difference.
We won’t get 8 years of Romney...
You need to find your spine and fight back against the Socialists who are trying to fix the outcome of this race to ensure that one of their own is in power for the next four years.
Vote Constitution Party or write in a conservative candidate if you wish, but do not fall for accepting a Socialist in a Republican jersey.
Fight back, dammit!
That, as I have repeatedly demonstrated, is simply not true. And it's clear you understand that, because you have never in your postings EVER provided a link to ANY poll taken within 50 days of the election showing McCain/Palin up by 10 points.
RCP has virtually all the respectable polling data here General Election 2008.
The last poll that has McCain in the lead is the GWU/Battleground poll, taken September 21-25, 39 days before the election, and that was a 2% lead (less than your "4-10", so it doesn't count). F&M had a poll ending 9/21 with a 2% McCain lead as well.
You have to go back to almost 60 days before the election to find any other polls with a McCain lead. Two polls on 9/11 at +4, and a USA Today on 9/7 with a +10 (That was immediately following the GOP convention).
But the +10 was an outlier, the average through that period never got better than 2.9%, and that was all convention bounce; Obama was back in front by a week after the convention, and it had nothing to do with Mitt Romney.
Take it up with John Quincy Adams.
Only Newt Gingrich would do that.
Romney only goes after Conservatives Alinsky style. $45 Million worth to get to where he is and he still doesn't have the nomination.
Keep praying and vote for Newt.
Brokered convention is still in possibility's realm and a lot can happen bewtween now and August. We never know when God might step in.
So says you, and all the rest of the spineless jellyfish who wouldn't recognize basic American principles if they bit them on the ass.
Pimp your back-stabbing Republican Socialist somewhere else.
I used to be hopeful for the good crop of young conservatives able to challenge for the top of the ticket in 2016, but it seems that most of them are now being rejected as RINOs as well.
A liberal Republican in name only will do far more damage to conservative causes with the R behind the name than a known liberal already seated. Conservative cause should be number one. Being tied up to the destruction of the party by a Republican in name only is a nonsense decision.
Here's another one I like:
"Of two evils, choose neither."
-- Charles Spurgeon
“I would just like to remind everyone the goal is NOT repeat NOT to get Obama unelected at all costs. For the costs do matter. I won’t sell my freedom to a Republican or Democrat. The Goal is freedom.”
I agree and that is why we MUST get Obama out of office. The single biggest liberty stealing legislation in the history of this country is Obamacare. If he remains in office, it is 100% certain that he will veto any repeal legislation. At least with the liberal repub, there is a 50% chance that he will sign any repeal legislation.
Pray hard for the USSC to make the right decision to protect our individual liberty. If not, a re-election of Obama will ensure that we can never repeal it and I will be very worried that he can be defeated...
I’ll also continue to pray for a convention miracle!
Gingrich was ahead by being positive and then Romney stormed with negative ads.
I will NEVER vote for that Romney jerk.
Imaginary situation: A man is before a firing squad. His captor steps forward.
“Do you wish to be killed with blue bullets or with pink bullets?”
The man responds, “I choose neither.”
His captor says, “But if you do not choose the blue bullets, then you will be shot with the pink ones.”
“I choose neither.”
Those in the crowd begin to murmur, “That fool is opting to be shot with pink bullets! How stupid! He is insane!”
What about us today? Will we choose the blue bullets or the pink bullets? I choose neither.
The Constitution Party's choice this year is just as much a liberal as Romney. No point in trading one for another.
Legitimate points, but I don’t think the answer is to stay home.
Then it becomes a self fulfilling prophesy.
I see Mittens as a salesman. A good one, too. He’s learned it as a Mormon missionary. Smile and agree, smile and agree. Then sell. That’s how he’s sold himself to the primary voters,I suspect, by smiling and agreeing. He doesn’t appear to believe much in anything, and I wonder if that’s the Mormon way. I mean, do they really believe than Jesus and Lucifer are brothers? So, even if in business dealings he’s a tough conservative SOB, in politics our smiling and agreeable Bishop goes along with the establishment which in state and in the nation capitals is decidedly liberal. He ain’t getting my vote.
Well, it’s certainly an interesting election year here on Free Republic.
It is surprising that some people are calling you insane on your own website. I’d like to believe that’s the affectionate “you must be crazy” we all hear from our friends sometimes.
As to this election thing, the nominee isn’t Romney yet but I will vote for the nominee, probably not even excluding Ron Paul. After all we are free to vote or not as we please.
Jim, the interest in voting for conservatives down ticket is an important one, but the fact is most people show up or don’t show up based on the presidential election. If people don’t show up for the main nominee, many are not going to the polls that day.
I’m sure many of us have dreaded this day because we love FR and it was obvious the hatred of Romney wasn’t going away. That meant if he is the nominee many conservatives can’t as effectively oppose Obama here. Obama is an evil blot on this nation, because the left and democrats are a shadow over this land.
There is no solution to this dilemna so I hope we all can still have a civil discussion.
Polls:1, Delusional Freepers:0.
It is my opinion that if Romney does get the nomination and he does defeat Obama, we can put up a conservative candidate to primary him in 2015-2016 and then sort all of this out..
for now. I think we have to first fire Obama and keep congress/take senate before we do anything else. Then go from there..
It is like a baseball team thats fires its manager. first an intrim manager is installed and then a better guy is hired the next season
IMHO it's game over already and we just don't know it yet. Economically we have past the point of no return. We can't recover from 16 Trillion in debt and 100 Trillion in unfunded mandates. It's just mathematically impossible. Socially we have past the tipping point where over half of the people rely on the other have to produce. The Rats are taking us over the cliff at 100 mph (in a Volt), the GOP is taking us over the cliff at 80 mph. the end result is the same.
You do realize, of course, that Romney has already started work on his national healthcare task force to impose RomneyCare-like socialist healthcare programs on the citizens of all 50 states at the state level? He still brags that his baby is a “free market conservative solution” to the nation’s healthcare woes. He’s already recruited Pam Bondi of Florida for the task force and he and she agree that RomneyCare is constitutional and would be a great solution and she boasts that they have 26 states already lined up to go.
Think I’m kidding:
This is betrayal and conflict of interest of the highest order. Bondi is leading the effort to bring down ObamaCare as unconstitutional yet she praises and wants to install RomneyCare!! They’re functionally the same damn thing!!
By the way, I’m sorry that you don’t know the difference between “reflection” made sweet by a clear conscience and “smug self-congratulations.”
“If things pan out the way it looks, you can ether help obumber get re-elected. Or you can help mitt get elected, its just that simple.”
Ernst Rohm v. Heinrich Himmler
Trotsky v. Stalin
Not equals, but equivalents.
Willard Mitt Romney governed to the left of William Jefferson Blythe Clinton.
Well, you are not a big fat hypocrite, which is unique in politics today.
After all the yapping and organizing I have done for the Tea Party here in Texas, no way can I now say “vote for the other socialist guy who invented Obamacare!”
Romney is too radical in the opposite direction, in not just one or two areas of disagreement, but EVERYTHING. I would have to lie like a rug to promote him. I can’t even change the subject to something good about him in a debate. Unbelievable.
Civil means no evil. Mitt is evil! Seems you are PC and that means you can't handle the truth! Your little That wasnt nice. is so wuss like and wusses are so easily offended!
Go embrace your PRO HOMO candidate.
Well, since every single candidate was trashed here as a RINO over the course of the past year, that rule would make for pretty sparse reading.
Please remind everyone that while we will not vote for mittens for president, we should not stay at home on election day.
We should go to the polls on election day because there are other elections, state and local, that will be taking place on that day, and those elections are critically important to growing conservative presence in elective office.
Moreover, we should appreciate that by voting in state elections we are doing something to take the Senate and to hold the House.
This action alone makes voting essential if we wish to keep the Supreme Court. It may be reasonably expected the Big Zero WILL have to make another appointment and hopefully, if we take the Senate, we can at least have SOME influence when it comes to blocking his socialist/liberal nominations—all it takes is ONE committed conservative.
Thanks for listening.
What in the world is a long drawn out campaign with everyone screaming at him he isn't conservative, but a ‘push’ to the right. I don't think you can really push someone to the right- it's a matter of core principals and those shouldn't be very changeable.
Donated to Newt today. It’s not over until the final votes are tallied. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl...........never mind.
“But the upside is that faced with another 4 years of Obama, Congress might get serious with him and start enforcing the checks and balances that are supposed to be there.”
Why would that happen, when his profoundly destructive policies of the past three years didn’t do it?
Romney is the GOP elites answer to the TEA party movement of 2010. They got nervous over the uprising. This election is designed to pu us in our place.
They think they can get him elected without our help and forever relegate us to the ash heap of history.
By voting for Romney, you are playing right into their hands.
“Requesting the ZOT!!!”
I gotta hand it to ya, that is the most succinct opus of all time on FR!
Thank you for your support of Newt.
I wish more folks here would see that Romney is not a foregone conclusion.
He only has half the delegates he needs.
If the folks in the remaining states voting would get behind Newt, this will be a brand new horse race.
I think you are mostly right.
The two things that keep me from giving up are my children (my two Marine sons, and my beautiful daughter) and my brand-new grandson.
Progressives love it when their plans work out so easily.
One thing everyone should take away fro this election is, both parties are led by Progressives and they have the same objective. The TEA Party conservatives we sent to Congress have all been compromised with a couple exceptions. There was no attempt to defund health care by Boehner, there was no attempt to bargain with the debt ceiling, repeal of DADT passed with wide margins.
Tell me quick how voting (R) has saved the country.
That's mitt to a 't' and the GOP e.
If the powers feel the need to ban me, fine but I’ll say this: anyone who thinks that the country would be as bad off with Romney as with an America hating, affirmative action loving, Jew hating racist who is intent on pissing on the Constitution, promoting voter fraud while starting a race war, and intentionally driving gas prices thru the roof, then I DO question your judgement.
