Sorry, I’ll vote for whomever the Pubs throw up against Obama.
Imagine what Obama will do if he thinks he has voter approval of his socialist agenda by being elected to a second term.
I dislike Romney but he is better than another Obama term. Sorry FR, had to say it.
I predict that by November this site will have again become more sane and practical.
This "Romney-is-Satan" crap just won't hold up for another six months, especially after every conservative who ever held public office has endorsed him and campaigned for him.
You can't make the case that "Romney is better than Obama" if you judge him solely on his record, which is indistinguishable from any liberal Democrat's.
Vote for that snake oil salesman if you must, but just know that he will become the de facto leader of the Republican party, and a Republican dominated Congress will not oppose his liberal agenda with anywhere near the force that they'd lock arms in opposition against Obama.
In fact, if history is any guide (GWB), the Congress will roll over for him like a puppy.
Take a good hard look at those dynamics and ask yourself which scenario is preferable.
If conservatives vote against Obama AND against Romney, and Obama wins on such a pathetic plurality that as much as 66 percent of voters voted AGAINST him, he and his socialist agenda, if not entirely dead in the water, will at least be at negative buoyancy and conservatives will probably cream him in the mid-terms, just like Republicans did when Clinton got a 43% plurality.
Imagine what DC will do if REPUBLICANS give their offical approval, even in a plurality, that the Republican party's most powerful representative be an advocate in opposition to FIVE MAJOR CONSERVATIVE ISSUES -- nationalized health care, on-demand abortion, the gay agenda, activist judges (see Romney's record), and cap-and-trade global warming eco-tyranny.
God forbid Romney gets in there, you can kiss the Republican party goodbye. I'm coming to realize that if you want to save the Republcian party and conservatism, the ONLY thing is to vote AGAINST Romney. ABO, and ABR. ABOOR.
