Skip to comments.Mitt Romney, evangelicals seek marriage of convenience
Posted on 04/29/2012 9:56:21 PM PDT by Innovative
Mitt Romney and the Republican Party's sizable bloc of evangelical voters are about to engage in a marriage of political convenience.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee's march to the nomination proceeded largely without strong backing from the conservative Christian community.
But with Romney now the only hope that conservatives have to beat President Barack Obama in November, a partnership has begun to jell.
Gary Rose, the chairman of the politics and government department at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Conn., agreed. "Santorum was their guy, but more important is their agenda of dislodging Obama," he said. "I don't believe they'll stay home."

So let’s see SCP we who oppose the liberal called Romney are now called: crybabies, sore losers, insane, stupid, ignorant, agents of BHO, democrat shills, members of the enemy, Soros shills, part of the democrat underground, trolls.......did I forget anything?
I will not now or ever vote for another liberal.
I will not vote for Romney.
Did you read the article. “Family man is their thing.” He meets that criteria. You see, Newt didn’t. Those divorces. Never mind his solid ideas and real solutions. Gotta have that family man. Sarah Palin didn’t cut it either, because women are supposed to stay home.
Yeah, I think they will break for obama.
Newt Gingrich says he’s dropping out ‘about’ May 2 and endorsing Romney [VIDEO]
“Mitt Romney and the Republican Party’s sizable bloc of evangelical voters are about to engage in a marriage of political convenience.”
“I will not vote for Romney.”
Nobody is asking you to — we merely want you to acknowledge the result of your actions — reelection of Obama.
Repeat after me: “I, svcw, want to give Obama a second term, rather than elect Romney”. Simple.
Pushing the idea that evangelicals will seek a marriage of convenience with Romney furthers the MSM line that serious Christians are phonies and hypocrites. No surprise, then, that the MSM love this line of attack. They’ll be happy if Romney wins; they’ll be happier if 0bama wins; and they’re always happy to attack conservative Christians as fakes.
Well, that Bob Vander Plaats from Iowa who launched Santorum is quoted along with Gary Bauer, so they’re talking about approving Romney’s running mate..LOL.
If you think Romney will win, it is delusional.
BHO campaign slogan will be “why vote for Romney when you already have me”.
BHO will say “look at Romney’s record, ok now why would you want to change horses in the middle of the stream”
Romney as the GOP nominee will guarantee the reelection of BHO for a second term.
I want people to recognize because they fell for the “only Romney can win”, are the ones who actually propelled Romney to the nomination.
everyone has their priorities I guess. It will be interesting to see what happens if he wins without overwhelming evangelical support. That would be a real game changer.
I just love the way the GOP tries to make conservatives into such simplistic tools for the establishment.
It is like they think we are the DNC’s dummy ghetto vote. If they just say something like “family man”, by george, they got us all wrapped up in the watermelon corner with the UN, Mittens and Algore.
Good luck with that.
I'll take that bet. Romney has no chance in a fair election. The conservative base is not going to turn out for him. We will vote down-ticket, but Romney is right there with Bush1.2, Dole and McCain in the history book.
That's what happens when the GOP runs a moderate or liberal.
We don’t buy the premise of your stupid assertion. The GOP-e handed Obama the victory the moment they ALL got behind Romney to shove him down our throats.
THE Ruling Class is to blame for Obama being handed a Dictatorship. We principled Conservatives have no blame in the handing of Obama a permanent seat of power. That honor belongs to the Ruling Class who took Obama’s hand picked opponent to run against Conservative candidates whom they worked together to destroy, to enable Romney the nomination. All done FOR THE PURPOSE of eliminating the relevance of Conservatives from the GOP forever.
We aren’t drinking that poison being offered, nor do we accept any responsibility for Obama’s trouncing of Romney this November because we are voting only for staunch Conservatives.
Romney was chosen to be the losing candidate to Obama, and shoved down our throats. So you can shove your inspid notion that we Conservatives are responsible for Obama’s win in November up yer piehole. We do not accept or buy it.
