Hold off ....can Romney announce his claim for the win to the NRC without the delegates, which he’s now announced he’s doing this week? Unless Santorum stepped in and gave him his?
MHGinTN, I've been posting on FreeRepublic for over a decade. Show me, any time, anywhere, where I EVER announced Mitt Romney was "my candidate" and endorsed him. If you cannot do so, the only liar is you and this conversation is over. Put up or shut up. I will not tolerate having my name smeared as a freeper who "supports Romney" for the Republican nomination when I was one of the FEW posters on here to vocally OPPOSE him over the last five years, including back when it was "popular" to support Romney over McCain & Huckabee in 2008. I have consistently opposed him ever since then, and to this day I would NOT advocate voting for him in the GOP primary. If you persist in purposely lying about who I support for President on this forum, I will have to report you to the mods.
>> I don't believe a word you write now <<
I don't believe a word you write either, and believe your insane incoherent rants might possibly be due to being under the influence of something while you post. Your ranks about the LDS church when I never once mentioned them, and bizarre statements that it's GOOD when Newt flip-flops on global warming (but BAD if anyone else does it!), defy any logic.
....must be I forgot....
I’m ready to sign out to call this one a night.
Thanks very much, billys kid!!!
Mw too Good night Onyx.
BUMp and thanks for the pings.
I have read all and I have to sign out.
Literally falling asleep.
Continue on with the good fight.
Romney the Party Leader? Have at it. The sooner the GOP-E goes to He//, the better for us and the TEA Party.
We are the Resistance. Rebellion starts from the bottom up.
We will damn sure vote, you betcha! We will vote TEA Party conservative patriots on all our respective ballots, from the bottom up.
We’ll oust every fossil incumbent RINO and every demonic -rat we can.
Freedom and Liberty are not free, but telling the truth comes natural to us.
We trust in Him, not politicans. Keep praying, and pray for those politicians who also pray and trust in God.
I’m praying for the Catholic convert, Newt Gingrich, who confessed his sins and accepted and worships our Lord and Savior.
Good night, everyone. God bless and Keep you all.
There are no easy answers’ but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” - Ronald Reagan
I cannot believe Romney’s going to lay claim as the winner to the NRC meeting!! How can he do that without reaching the delegate count?
.......If there’s any question at all in any body’s mind of the utter arrogance and disregard for the voters this man has, and that this is all about what he believes is rightfully due him...then there is no help for those who cannot see this man for what he is!
And His wife is just like him saying.....”It’s his turn”....as if their school children standing in line. She needs to wise up that he lost his turn before and nobody wants him to have another.
This whole Primary might just as well have not taken place....the voters are simply immaterial in “THEIR” election. This is no longer a governance of the people, by the people, and for the people.......we’re just footing the bill for their egos, pockets, and power.
Golly I feel like I live in the Congo!
In AZ, there is some sort of RNC meeting of all teh state GOP leaders ON fRIDAY, the ones who really did a lot of the mischief in the primaries. Romney is speaking and the news reports are describing it as the meetin where romney will be given the GOP's cloak of the presumptive nominee... And that cloak is expected to carry much weight..
It's all a shadow dance, but with the establishment it will carry much much weight... it's all settled with the establishment now.. The heroes are just about gone.
Thanks so much for the list, Jim.
It really shows the liberalism of Mitt Romney.
LOL. Who's ron paul?
Never trust someone with two first names.
Since you refer to me as "you people" and post only to me, tell me, when have I ever posted about romney? where and when have I whined how bad he is?
I ignore him. He's not worth wasting time over or bandwidth.
Consider that it is you who is helping obama get re-elected. Blaming others is what he's good at, you fit right in with this characteristic.
Have a wonderful day!
[smiles] [giggles] [smiles]
One of those two has CHOSEN to belong to a 'church' that has committed 'crimes' against CHRISTIANITY!
He may have been BORN into it; but by now he has made a conscious decision to STAY in that church.
Are you still killing your unborn?
Same electorate, same media and same back-stabbing trolls sabatoging a party.
Some boast in chariots and some in horses,
But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.
He's a (oooh hold me back) MORMON!
They 'lay claim' to a LOT of things that are not theirs!!
Lol - good one.

Looks like ol’ L-I-E has gotten the invisible ZOT!
I don’t like Romney as the nominee but nothing is worse than Obama, nothing.
You can find that, and much more, at ProudProducers.com.
My favorite t-shirt allows you to insert your last name as the Veep, i.e. Galt/Night Hides Not 2012.
The polos are of very high quality, and I have several that I wear to work. As you might expect, I usually get quizzical looks, especially when I wear my "Danneskjold Repossessions" shirt.
Just to help you comprehend the terms, flip flop is when someone starts with “A”, flips to “B”, then flips back to “A”, then ... well, even you can get the gist of that. And your whine of not supporting milt rominy is hollow at best since you’re trying to establish an ‘inevitability’ for the lying high priest. And, BTW, report me and make my day, punk.
With what is on the agenda for the AZ Friday meeting, I suspect we have several stealth rominy slugs workign that talking point of ‘inevitability posting here at FR.
I’ve been reading this thread, and each time I run across your posts I think “one of these is not like the others.”
The difference in your post and others who are ABO is that others point to reason and logic.
You, on the other hands, use name calling and belittling.
I have heard it said that when a person sees only the negatives in others it is often because that same negative is something they don’t like about themselves.
A quote from you: “If only some of these Freeper posters could objectively read what they pen!!! Sad!!!”
Since you don’t appear to be objectively reading your own posts, allow me to give you an outside observation.
You seem hateful. You are doing nothing to convince me of your position. In fact, I find your posts to be immature and not worthy of respect.
I hope this helps. Perhaps now you can take your own advice and sensor your message before you embarrass yourself and FR further.
> I will vote for Newt, unless Palin gets the nomination in the convention.
That’s my plan, too... unless someone of the caliber of Newt or Palin goes 3rd party... then that’s my solid plan.
The current GOP is a joke, and RINO Romney is the tragic punchline.
Jim, Romney wanted Obama to implement the individual mandate on the NATIONAL level:
You candidate(s) lost in the primaries and thats life. My state hasn't even had it's primary yet. I'm tired of you Northeaster people deciding who I have to vote for.
But stop telling us Republicans.... FR is a site for conservatives, NOT Republicans. Maybe you should start your own website just for Republicans if you don't like what JimRob has to say.
>>Do y’all really believe that Mittens would nominate a Pagan or Sotomayor to the SC? I call that quit significant.
>How is it that we’re this far into the primary and you’re not aware that Mitt appointed MOSTLY hard-left liberals to the bench while he was Governor?
>The answer is yes. Mitt will appoint left-wing libs to the Supreme Court.
ALSO: he will appoint them with an R next to his name. Guaranteeing that the lib judge will sail through Congress faster than a greased pig down a waterslide.
Newt does support amnesty, unfortunately.
That is nonesense, newbie. Your statement is exactly what I would expect somebody supporting Obama to say.
Is the term “newbie” meant to discredit me?
Think about it...
If Obama is president and faces Republican control of the House and Senate, they are FAR less likely to vote in favor of his policies because they know they’ll catch hell from voters.
Adversely, if Mitt Romney wanted a disastrous bill (see TARP, Sarbanes-Oxley and No Child Left Behind) the Republican congress is FAR MORE LIKELY to let it pass for the sake of “party unity”
It’s simple strategy. Obama will be a lame duck!
“Newt does support amnesty”
That’s a lie.
What conservative principles? We got a guy (Obama) destroying the country every day, more & more!!! And......no one on this site or any others can ever question my conservative principles!!! I was a Barry Goldwater supporter from 1958, onward!!! And....then, a staunch supporter of Ronnie Reagan!!! And.....I don’t like Romney!!! But Romney is only a Waffler.....Obama is a nation killer!!! Romney, with all his faults loves America. Obama hates it!!! And......if Obama is re-elected, you can pack all your so-called conservative principals in your closet forever!!! End of Story!!! If you folks can’t see the forest for the trees, you are all adrift at sea!!! Sad!!! I will speak or pen no more on this subject!!! Closed minds cannot be communicated with!!!
I won’t write in Sarah either, just for the reasons you
state, although I do respect her a great deal. Newt will get my vote in the primary, and I believe the solution you have put forth is the right one for the general. I just haven’t made my final decision on the Pres. vote for Nov. other than to say I will not vote for Romney or Obama.
What would make me speechless, and prove Newt to be who he says, is if he dropped the Republican party after November and became the candidate for one of the big third parties, I would hope the Constitution Party, and then pull in someone like Sarah Palin or Alan West or Rick Perry. The country would go nuts! What an impact that would make on the election.
I would love to live through such a time as that.
Anyway, here’s praying Romney doesn’t get the delegates.
LOL! So true, so true.
Yes, he does, especially for those who have violated our laws for a long time. That is why my choice was Santorum. Even Romney has a stronger stand against illegal aliens than Newt.
10 Steps to a Legal Nation, by Newt Gingrich
“Under no circumstance can a path to citizenship be created which would allow those who have broken the law to receive precedence over those who patiently waited to become residents and citizens via the legal process. Those who adhered to our immigration law cannot be usurped by those who violated it.”
