Skip to comments.Tea Party Warms To Romney
Posted on 04/18/2012 5:02:41 AM PDT by Haiku Guy
One chunk of the Republican electorate has proved an incredibly fickle voting bloc, denying party unity while the nominating process dragged on. Its the same group of conservative voters that went from candidate to candidate, looking for an alternative to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Now, out of options, it seems that those who identify themselves as tea party supporters are finally coming home to the presumptive nominee.

Best to limit the damamge as we can, and work to get more Jim DeMints and fewer Mitch McConnells in Congress.
The choice is between botulism and salmonella.
Either way, you’re going to be sick as Hell and most likely die due to the inadequacies of either 0bamaCare or RomneyCare.
A write-in or Third Party Conservative. Best choice. We do not have to drink the poison the Ruling Class has served us.
=====================MYTH: What happens now?Scott Toomey: Well, now, uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I wait until nightfall, and then leap out of the Fithcally Conthervative log cabin, taking The Party(tm) by surprise -- not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!MYTH: Who leaps out?Scott Toomey: Uh, Ken Mehlman, R. Clarke Cooper, Meghan McCain, Mary Cheney and I. Uh, leap out of the log cabin, uh and uh....MYTH: Oh....Scott Toomey: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden Rhinocerous -- [twong]ALL: Run away! Run away! Run away! Run away! [splat]NO SALE!
I understand where you're coming from. I agree with your assessment.
Here is what I am going to do.
I am going to vote for Mitt Romney, because he is the lesser of two evils. Not even close. He is much, much less evil.
Still evil, of course. But much, much less evil.
I am going to work for Republicans in the House and Senate, so Romney will have less opportunity to "reach across the aisle", because fewer and fewer Democrats will be there.
For 2016, I am going to work to take over the Democratic Party. It's too late for this year, but we have four long years to get a good Democratic nominee for 2016.
We will never be able to wrest the Republican Party from the establishment types. Rommey is their prototype, and they are going to beat us at this game, over and over again. We're stupid to keep playing.
Third Party is simply not an option. If we throw our weight behind a third party, we guarantee the election of whatever Socialist loser the Democrat machine puts forward, in perpetuity.
The only place left to go is the Democratic Party. As their "establishment" becomes more and more blatantly Socialist, they are losing touch with their own electorate. A good, solid pro-growth, pro-America optimistic candidate could make inroads with the Reagan Democrats, and perhaps steal the nomination. Then we flank the Republican Establishment on the right during the 2016 General Election.
That is my modest proposal for a way forward.
But the first step is holding our nose and voting for Mitt.
Exactly. Good analogy.
There were a lot of freepers that claimed they would not vote for juan mccain either. Then came sarah and that went out the window. If Mitt truly wants to win this thing, he will choose a reasonably conservative veep.
Not THIS tea partier!
FAKE TEA PARTIES. KNOW THEM BY THEIR RINO.
Same exercise.. gotta elect the RINO, even with all his warts, then work to get more conservatives elected.
Yet, here we are...again.
Only THIS time, the GOP has settled on the worst of the bunch. I settled for Bush I and II, Dole and even McCain. But Romney? They`ve pushed it too far this time. No thanks.
any port in a storm?
They really are pulling out all the stops to set the psychological stage.
Three things now can block the RINO Liar going forward:
1. Santorum endorses Gingrich.
2. Newt makes it to a brokered convention.
3. Sheriff Arpaio reveals who the forger is.
The last item can cause pandemonium everywhere and the uncertainty will affect the Romney camp. A large swath pf voters will look at Obama with suspicion and as a byproduct will view Romney with a side glance. The entire political establishment will be made suspect and the passions of 2010 will be reemerge with a vengeance.
When Americans are made so angry, when they know they have been duped, they will react by throwing out as much of the establishment of the ruling class as possible.
I don’t believe this for a second.
Either way, youre going to be sick as Hell and most likely die due to the inadequacies of either 0bamaCare or RomneyCare.
Of course, most people will survive salmonella, but must people will not survive botulism.
Romney is salmonella. Bon appetit!

That’s a revolutionary idea worthy of discussion and a vanity thread. You could title it, “Should conservatives work to take over the Democrat Party?”
Yup,worked great for Ross Perot.A huge turnout...something like 20% of the vote.Anyone recall how many *electoral* votes he got?
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Wasted my vote going for the communist one time, will NOT do it again.
I have not forgotten after 40 years, seems quite a few around here have forgotten after just 4. Elections have consequences people and complain all you want, Romney is NOT the same as Obama, not even fricken close.
