You have some very strong principles. And I admire them. But you might be missing the point. It’s one thing to vote for Romney when and IF he is on the ballot. But, and this is the heart of the matter, he hasn’t won the nomination yet. And who Jim or anybody votes for in November is their private business...
We are making a stand with Newt on OUR principles, and beliefs. The RNC knows who their opponent is, they have already put out their first 2 official anti-obama ads. We are not holding up the battle.
We are fighting against all odds, while there is still a moment of choice left. And we are fighting against the GOP establishment as well as their candidate, because if they succeed in doing this, they will be so emboldened by their ability to get the conservatives to support them, they will never again take the wishes of the conservative base seriously - not that they do now anyway.
I just wish you would take your principles, and fervor, and deep beliefs and put them to work for Newt until the nominee is chosen at the convention. Until then, we have a chance. It may looks like the banks of the Delaware right now, but we still have a chance. Join us.
I plan on supporting the official nominee AGAINST Obama. that is a principled choice I am making, and I don’t fault others who are making a different choice. I will certainly, when the time comes, try to persuade them otherwise. But that is then. This is now.
No, I think you're mistaken. The seeming majority (or at least the loudest) here would prefer that Obama is re-elected. They don't have the courage to actually -vote- for him, but they'll be happy to have it happen just to poke Mitt in the eye. Bitterness does that to people.
