Romney gaining conservatives' support, if not their hearts
Washington Post ^ | apr 19, 2012 | Rosalind S. Helderman and Sandhya Somashekhar

Posted on 04/22/2012 7:06:08 AM PDT by Innovative

Mitt Romney was not his first choice for president, but conservative political activist Scott Magill has come to accept that Romney is now his only choice. So Magill is looking for reasons to get jazzed about the candidate he once dismissed.

His list so far: Romney is a Republican who would sign into law legislation passed by a GOP-led House. Romney has started to hit the right talking points. If elected, Romney would have to listen to the conservative base - or risk its wrath at reelection time.

Also, and perhaps most important, Romney is not Barack Obama.

The conservative base appears to be warming to Romney, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll conducted after Santorum's exit, which found that about 80 percent of conservative Republicans hold favorable views of Romney - a record percentage for the candidate.

Santorum's withdrawal from the field has opened the door for many groups that had been uncomfortable with his candidacy to embrace Romney, including the National Right to Life; the Susan B. Anthony List; National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex marriage.

Obama is the enemy!

NO. LIBERALISM IS THE ENEMY. I don't care what party a candidate belongs to. Apparently to some (including yourself), all that a candidate needs to get your vote is the letter "R"

You have:

1. no proof that Obama hates this country (he probably thinks he’s making it better by implementing socialist policy)

2. no proof that Romney DOESN’T hate his country. He is, after all, LYING to his own party about his liberal record.

Again, just because Mitt has an “R” next to his name...

A vote for Goode IS A VOTE for EVIL...might as well pull the lever for Obama and destroy this country directly...that way you can brag that you were responsible for the destruction.

A vote for Goode is a vote for Goode. A vote for Obama or Romney is a vote for evil. If you vote for Obama or Romney you might as well pull the lever for Obama or Romney and destroy the country directly. In this way you can brag about how you voted against Goode and claim responsibility for the destruction.

Have fun throwing your vote away on Obamney.

Why did Obama (who you admit is hurting the republic) get elected in the first place?

ANSWER: We fielded an incredibly pathetic RINO candidate in the entire party.

And you want to do it again?

“Romney’s role, if elected, is to consolidate Obama’s socialist gains, with a Republican smiley face painted on it all. “

That simply is not a true statement...there is a world of difference between Romney and Obama...really.

If you all dont like it tough they are millions like me that will do anything to get marxist Obama out of office because he is destroying the republic.

You won't do it by voting another marxist like Mittens in.

I support conservatives when I can(I voted for Newt in TN), but Im damn sure voting for anyone against the worst president in US history.

Virgil Goode is running against the worst president in US history as well as another liberal candidate with an (R) after his name who is probably even worse since Congress will rubber stamp the spread of communism as long as it has an (R) on it.

If Newt is still in it when it gets to my state, he will get my vote. However, the damage has been done to split the conservative vote early on. Neither Newt nor Rick were man enough to get together to save the day for the conservatives to prevent Romney from getting traction. For that, I am not guilty!

You have time to re-think things. Wait until the real shelling from the socialist begins unabated and the war finally starts in SEPTEMBER.

Regardless of who is the “R” in November, I will vote for the “R”. Obama is the worse enemy. The entire conservative elected and non-elected ‘leaders’ will be supporting whatever the ticket is to defeat Obama. Palin, Rush, Demint, will all be supporting the ticket.

I will be one of those engaged, and shooting at the real enemy. Once things start to really heat up, it will be difficult for you, and others like you, to continue to shoot at our flank from within.

Those who vote for Mitt Romney in the primary are (perhaps unintentionally) giving the election to Obama. The issue in this election that people are as close to unanimous about as anybody ever gets is the need to get rid of Obamacare (which is just the federal verson of Romneycare).

We are shooting ourselves in the foot if we choose Romney as our candidate - partly because it will give Obama the victory even though I and many, many others will be pushing against Obama even if Romney is the R candidate. But also partly because Romney doesn’t really grasp the whole concept of freedom. I’m going to C&P from what I posted at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2875441/posts :

I have to work today and tomorrow so I can’t man any of Newt’s phone banks, but if anybody can use this letter to forward in e-mails to your lists before tomorrow’s primaries, please do so:

Mitt Romney supports government-coerced abortion. He personally has made the decision to force people to provide abortions even though they believe it to be murder.

Yes, he vetoed Romneycare because it mandated abortion insurance coverage, but in Dec 2005 after his veto was overridden and the Boston Globe printed an article noting that Catholic hospitals would be exempt from providing abortions to rape victims, Romney ordered the Dept of Public Health to force Catholic hospitals to provide abortions. He said his legal counsel had given him a “sounder view” of what Romneycare meant – that this law alone, of all the abortion laws passed in the 30 years since the 1975 conscience law had exempted religious institutions from having to perform abortions against their religious beliefs, nullified the conscience law even though a nullification clause had specifically been rejected by the MA legislature. Romney went further and said he personally believed it was the “right thing” for Catholic hospitals to commit what they believe to be murder.

Since that time, the regulations now say that the abortifacient morning-after pill must be offered by Catholic hospitals regardless of whether rape is even claimed. In other words, any woman can go to the emergency room of any Catholic hospital in MA and force the staff there to give her an abortion pill, no questions allowed to be asked.

This isn’t about rape and it isn’t about abortion. There are plenty of secular hospitals that will provide the morning-after pill. This is about forcing every Catholic in this country who puts a dollar bill in the collection plate to commune at the altar of government-established religion that includes abortion. Religious liberty exists no more.

Welcome to China right here in America.

Romney defends Romneycare’s coerced abortions by pointing out that states are not bound by the US Constitution. First Amendment guarantees of religious liberty don’t apply to states. States are free to establish religion and violate religious liberty, as Romney has done in MA.

The chief way that Islamists plan to establish sharia in free countries is by establishing precedents at the more local levels and then using that precedent to force the whole country into sharia – Islam forced onto everyone. Romney’s claims would allow states to establish sharia.

Vote for Newt Gingrich in the Republican Presidential primary.

If you prefer Newt then why not support him in the primary until the primary is over?

After the primary is over we can fight Obama. Right now we have to fight to have an alternative to Obama that we and our allies can actually stomach voting for. Whoever runs against Obama is going to need better than what I could offer for Romney, which is “Well, Romney is slime who believes in coerced abortion but at least he’s not Obama.”

If we seriously want somebody we can put our hearts into supporting - which is what it’s going to take, with a hostage media, hostage electronic voting systems, hostage law enforcement, hostage Congress, and hostage courts - we have GOT to fight to get somebody besides Romney.

Until we have a candidate, we have a duty to fight for the BEST candidate and not let ourselves be demoralized by a machine whose sole intent is to demoralize us. That’s what Romney’s buy-off of the supposedly “pro-life” groups during the PRIMARY is all about. To make sure that Romney is the nominee. NOT to fight Obama.

So would I, and I’ve said so here effusively.

But Romney hasn’t won yet. There is still another option at this point. You said you voted for Newt already. Thanks! Fantastic! Now cheer on those who still have that option, and push for the best candidate we can get.

So we WON’T have to vote for a piece of excrement in order to vote against Obama.

Your blood and the blood of your family should not be wasted by us getting a guy in the office of President who believes that sharia is perfectly fine as long as it is the STATES and not the feds who institute it. I’ll C&P again what I wrote in a different thread, so you can really think about what is at stake here. Romney won’t intentionally institute sharia like Obama will (which is why I would support Romney against Obama) but because he doesn’t recognize what America and her freedoms are up against he would unwittingly sell us down the river. Here’s what I posted:

That’s a good stance. I’m with you on all of that.

What you can do now, though, in addition to your own vote, is work to try to unite those who have been sidetracked by personal politics and/or agents provocateur - so that we stand together for the more conservative candidate who is still in the race: Newt.

The biggest obstacle we face right now is people giving up. Demoralization. That’s a game that the communists have perfected, and the Romney machine knows all the same tricks. Buying off the supposedly “pro-life” groups during the PRIMARY is a sign of how Romney substitutes money and power for conscience and freedom. If his money can buy off the “pro-life” groups we give our money to, he has effectively bought us off too - UNLESS WE FIGHT BACK FOR THE TRUTH.

And that’s what we need to do. For our own consciences’ sake and for the sake of the country.

Let’s make this real simple, so even the most brain-dead Romney Zombie understands it:

Liberals want to f*ck this country.

Conservatives refuse to f*ck with liberals.

RINOs are on their knees hoping a bl*w job is enough.

Some Republicans through desperation or fear may have temporarily abdicated their core principles and see Romney as the least of all evils. Understandable. Everybody drops the soap sometimes.

But RINOs that actively defend and promote this lying liberal in conservative clothing are taking the soap and using it to write “DO ME” on the prison shower floor.

Thus endeth the lesson. Next week: “Why Politicians Who Swing Both Ways Tend to Get It in Both Ends”.

He [Romney] has NO demeaning qualities

I really hate to interrupt your non-stop personal attacks (e.g. calling FReepers dumb and stupid) but I'm having some doubt whether you actually know what the word demeaning means. The term simply doesn't work in context with the rest of your tirade. Any chance you and your infinite wisdom intended to describe "no redeeming qualities," Smarty Pants?

As he promised gay marriage to the gays while at the same time in public he swore to defend traditional marriage; you know now where his heart was on that one!

"I will be one of those engaged, and shooting at the real enemy. Once things start to really heat up, it will be difficult for you, and others like you, to continue to shoot at our flank from within"

So let me get this right... you attacking me for supporting a real Conservative is NOT "shooting at our flank" but me pointing out the FACT that anyone surrendering before the war is over is shilling for the enemy is??? How's that work? Do you look to Jane Fonda for guidance?

As I said... Romney has less than half the delegates needed to secure the nomination of the Republican party and quite likely will NOT secure enough delegates before the convention. Without his minions in the msm using his millions to trash his opposition in little one minute soundbites on TV and radio romney will have to convince the delegates that he is not just another obomba. He can't do it which is why the coward won't do any more debates. When Newt can set the record straight and be heard he cannot lose to romney hence the war is not over. I have been in enough battles to know that it ain't over until it's over. You're choosing sides as we speak. You've drank the koolaide and believe obombney is everything but what his record says he is. You claim that romney is not just another obomba yet you have NO EVIDENCE to support your claims. You say obomba is the real enemy and that romney is not. Well sorry bub. To me all socialists are the enemy and I don't give a rat's rear what party they are in. I will not cast my ballot for another loser. Not going to happen. You blame Newt and Santorum for not stepping up and doing the right thing. You blame them for not consolidating the conservative movement yet Santorum isn't a conservative either. If you knew what a conservative is you wouldn't be calling romney one and you certainly wouldn't be doing anything to support him.

Oh well... The hearts of the people will get what they desire. They cried out to God for a King and got Saul. Look at what that did for them. You're calling out for a moderate and will get???

While I am a firm believer that this country is screwed I am hopeful that like the Ninevites, maybe the citizens of the United States will repent and change course before obomba/romney gets another four years to finish destroying our nation.

Do as you will. Jim Robinson asked his members to stop shilling for romney. You think that bushing Newt under a bus before the convention is NOT shilling for romney. I see it differently. I'm just going to agree to disagree with you.

Then you have not read about what he did in Massachusetts...it wasn’t all bad. Just like Reagan in California though...he had to compromise and accept some things so that he could get other things.

He is not my first pick, but I will definitely support him over a democrat. We simply cannot afford democrats being in power...

I am in complete disagreement with so called “gay marriage”, but I also know that there has never been any politician that I voted for that was 100% in tune with what I believe. And, the way our governmental system works we MUST not help democrats remain in power, it is far far too risky.

“Not a site for whoring out your conservative principles for a gun grabbing, pro-abortion socialist just because he has an R behind his name.”

Yup, it’s now “conservative principles” to be fragging the 2012 imminent GOP nominee and thereby giving aid and comfort to the gun grabbing, tax-raising, Saudi-king-bowing, dog-eating, debt-busting, healthcare-system-destroying, energy pipeline-killing, pro-abortion socialist dictator-wannabe named Obama.

And that’s just fine because President O doesnt have an R behind his name, so its cool to let that particular marxist who lost millions of jobs on his watch and blew through $6 TRILLION dollars have 4 more years to destroy what’s left of the once-great USA. Gotcha.

“A vote for Goode IS A VOTE for EVIL”

Totally unfair. A vote for Goode is a vote for a third party candidate who will get 1%. It’s a vote to let brainwashed liberals decide who gets to be President.

“My first priority is getting rid of Obama. That’s all I have to say.”

“I can’t be your first priority because there is more of a guarantee you will have obama with mitt as a nominee - he has NOTHING to fight him on, NOTHING!”

Obama blew $6 trillion dollars in deficit spending, lost millions of jobs on his watch and has had the worst economic record in our lifetimes. He imposed socialized medicine, czars, and far-left judges on us.

Romney supports the Ryan roadmap to fix the deficit and control spending in the budget, opposes Obama’s jobkilling tax hikes and proposes to lower rates, and will sign Obamacare repeal that a GOP Congress send him, and reverse Obama’s energy jobkilling decisions (like Keystone) as well.

It’ll be enough to run on.

“ONLY Newt can beat him” ... to even get there he needs to win primaries, which he hasnt. I expect my vote for Newt in the TX primary to be a protest vote.

Romney hasn't sewn up the nomination yet. And lots of folks are working hard to ensure he doesn't. Include me in that number.

And I will never ever ever vote for Romney.

Absolutely nothing wrong with that. The hard part is watching Reagan Greatness pushed down the drain. I fear for my Country.

“to the gun grabbing, tax-raising, Saudi-king-bowing, dog-eating, debt-busting, healthcare-system-destroying, energy pipeline-killing, pro-abortion socialist dictator-wannabe “

We’re you talking about Romney or Obama here? The description fits both.

Nope, all he needs to do is keep Romney from getting enough delegates for a coronation. And for the GOP to quit trying dirty tricks like Florida, where half the delegates shouldn't count.

I expect the Florida delegates to melt away when challanged.

I pray for an open convention and a bloody and ugly floor fight.

And whose fault is that? Voters aren't IN IT TO WIN - to win it FOR AMERICA! They are too busy nursing their fears! God said 'FEAR NOT' 365 times - you think many are listening to HIM or the media/GOP? God doesn't honor the faithless, the disobedient!

I get the honor of voting for Newt tomorrow FOR AMERICA! I will NEVER succumb to fear/evil.

Cant see the difference? Get your eyes checked.

“I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” — defending his tax plan to Joe the Plumber, who argued that Obama’s policy hurts small-business owners like himself, Toledo, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2008

“The Cambridge police acted stupidly.” —commenting on a white police officer’s arrest of black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home in Cambridge, Mass., at a news conference, July 22, 2009. Obama later had to convene a “Beer Summit” at the White House to help tamp down the controversy stirred by his remark

“It’s not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” –speaking at a San Francisco fundraiser about his troubles winning over some small-town, working-class voters, April 11, 2008

Saw this apropos comment:

“So here we are, almost four years in to the current administrations tenure, of which the first two years were controlled exclusively by the administration, and here’s where we stand: $5 trillion dollars further in debt from when Obama took office, 8% plus unempoyment, 42 million plus on welfare, no democratic budget offered much less passed in three years, and totally ignorant of basic economics (google - Laffer Curve) based on the rallying cry of taxing the wealthy more as some sort of magical elixir all in the name of “fairness”.”

.... there is something worthy of our fear: FOUR MORE YEARS OF OBAMA.

but I have “hope” we will change that!
