Mitt Romney, evangelicals seek marriage of convenience
The State ^ | Apr. 30, 2012 | David Lightman

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."

Yadda yadda badda badda bing bong—I'm voting for the only person who has a chance of beating Obama—beating Obama is the prime directive if one gives even the slightest damn about America.

Not mentioning any names here just gonna do it;)

Romney CANNOT WIN.

Why? WE, and everyone ELSE, WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM.

ROMNEY DECREASES VOTER TURNOUT. Which is why
the DNC and Soros and the MSM picked him.

There is a sizable purist population, but I believe in the end it will be smaller than the vote Obama out population. All the issues about Romney which come under a spotlight on, say, this website will scarcely be visible to the average voter looking at the jobs and economy issues with a very worried eye. In the end Obama will dig his own political grave and Mitt (if by some miracle someone else is not the candidate) will probably crow about it as if he was something special.

Romney has absolutely NO CHANCE of beating Obama.

None whatsoever.

It is why Obama, the MSM and the MarxoFascist Left in conjunction with the Ruling Class GOP-e, chose him to be the nominee against Obama.

I will never compromise my principles again by voting a ‘lesser of two evils’. Been there, done that.

It’s a trap.

One too many of you are willing to play out of fear.

And the enemy has you right where he wants you.

As much as many here wish they could channel and control the public mindset to punish the GOP by refusing to give Mitt the nod in November if he is the candidate, I do not believe in practice it will happen. Look at what is happening on Townhall, for another point of view. In order to win, Obama historically would need to be far ahead of the presumptive challenger in polls at this point on the calendar; he is not.

Basically, and this is without actually cheering for Mitt Romney, the truth is that Obama is so terrible and inspires so much disgust that he would lose even to Mitt Romney. If there were a Democrat incumbent who was better than Obama, Mitt Romney wouldn’t have even gotten the time of day from the GOP. Dirty Democrat tricks took down the “better than Mitt” candidates and Mitt is the last man standing.

Right now the public and particularly conservatives are being badgered to take in Romney when during his campaign and after he has not made no real effort to appear on most conservative talk shows or approach tea party groups. He’s got some talkies carrying water for him only to move 10 feet forward and find another 5 gallon pail to either to trip over or pick up containing some some lib position he’s just dropped off on his way to the White House..

While SCOTUS is set to rule on Obamacare in June I for one am not that certain we’re going like what they come up with. Obamacare has got to be thrown out. The only way I for one will feel Romnney would support that is if and when he repudiates Romneycare as a mistake. I don’t trust him on his EPA positions, or on Obamacare.

To do that for the remaining primarys. If Santorum os on their states ballot they should vote for him and his delegates.

Can Satan cast out Satan?

You really think one evil is able to cast out another evil?

You’re all dreaming.

Or you have no principles.

Or what you think are principles will not stand up in That Day when you have to give Account.

There is the ways of men that say better one evil man than a worse evil man, and then there is the way of God, which says do not EVER compromise with evil, as God has no part with darkness.

And on the merits, Obama and Romney have the same evil record, anathema to our principles and foundations, especially where God is concerned.

And I fear we “realpoliticians” with our realpolitiks will shortly get booted out of the echo chamber once JR learns about it... so far there has not been tattling about this strain of discontent but it’s only a matter of time.

Mitt Romney is NOT a wonderful leader. He has issues that even John McCain never had. One problem he will not have, however, is that of having a visibly sane platform about the issues that Barack Obama is bungling worst in the public eye — the economy and employment. And Mitt Romney is not afraid of the race card like John McCain was. He is the moldy ham sandwich which will still appear far better than the stinking fermented cowpile that is the Barack approach to governing.

If something deserves attention, it is not so much to execrate Mitt Romney but to figure out how better to keep better candidates from getting mowed down in the future by unscrupulous Democrats (is that totally redundant). I cheered for Sarah Palin, then Herman Cain (with honorable mention to Rick Perry), then Santorum, then Gingrich. All apparently in vain.

Realpolitik looks like it will rule the day and barring a deus ex machina, America will likely muddle through with Mitt (which is hardly an inspiring slogan). What comes after Mitt, and who goes to the Congress now, is much more malleable. Energy spent hating Mitt might be better spent on the malleable factors.

Romney was chosen to be the losing candidate to Obama, and shoved down our throats.

That's why the GOP runs 'open primaries'...as long as Democrats have a say in nominating the Republican candidate; we will NEVER get a conservative. Never.

By their fruits we are to judge.

But if this people want an evil king, God will grant them their desires and give them over to a reprobate mind.

We’ve fallen so far as a culture as to refuse to call evil and sin what they are, and instead play clever political games and compartmentalize what was expected of us as a free people to do to uphold liberty.

Voting for something like Romney ‘aint it.

I will be working tirelessly to convince everyone I preach and pastor to that is a citizen, to vote for the staunch conservative.

So you advocate voting for the Socialist instead of the Marxist eh?

You still get Socialism.

And nothing Obama has done gets reversed.

Instead with Romney at the helm, it gets endorsed and codified into stone.

And the culture wills till rot, and Conservatives will become irrelevant, unless they move far Left.

If you want to play that game, then you are no Conservative. You would be a political animal, just like the GOP-e that foist this crap on us.

Certainly as a purist, JR will keep you around even if I and Happy go by the boards. I think when Mitt Romney takes his eraser to the Obama EO’s in January, a lot like you will be eating crow about your doom and gloom — unless JR bans that expression of fact as well as it happens. There will still be problems — perhaps Mitt’s easiness towards gays is the worst. But some measure of sanity that was absent under Obama will return.

C. S. Lewis warned about that kind of hatred — the hatred that wishes black were even blacker.

I think the comparison between Romney and Nixon is accurate. I’ve been thinking the same lately.

He’s another tricky dick with strong socialist tendencies running against a committed communist who hates America.

Your vote is not a cheer. Politics is the art of the possible.

And there witness the cognitive dissonance.

This is war, not politics.

Politics is thinking you can control the beast before it eats you, or at minimum get it to like you.

Some of us value our principles and standing before God much more than compromising with the very things that God condemns and Romney supports.

No wonder we have lost our culture to the Godless. It's no longer standing up for what is righteous, it's compromising with what is evil, and calling it 'the art of the possible'.

Well you folks go ahead. Your thinking would be one of the major reasons we lost the culture and then the republic in the first place, second only to the lukewarm church itself.

Vote Goode, Constitution Party. Clearly a conservative.

'The Constitution Party gratefully acknowledges the blessing of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as Creator, Preserver and Ruler of the Universe and of these United States. We hereby appeal to Him for mercy, aid, comfort, guidance and the protection of His Providence as we work to restore and preserve these United States.'

We have a conservative candidate...but look at everyone holding their nose for Romney.

You call me “no conservative.” (Which is, of course a violation of the ignored rule here against personal attack.)

I questioned your premise - that is that a person cannot cast a vote for the only option to remove Obama from office without getting in trouble with God.

If I withhold my vote from an opportunity to mitigate an evil that I am aware of, I have then cooperated knowingly with known evil. That, sir/madame, I shall not do.

Even in Mitt’s sordid history, I don’t recall him ever refusing to honor the wishes of the legislature, if only as filtered through the courts (which is what happened in Massachusetts in the “gay marriage” scandal — when, granted, Mitt should have waited for the court order to address him). Do you? That alone would make Mitt much less dangerous than Barack with all his Congress-skirting EOs. The ball would be back in Congress’ (and the USSC’s) hands.

You apparently live in fantasyland and like to dream skittle-pooping unicorns. My feet are planted in the real world and not given to wishful thinking based on nothing but hyperbole

Romney's own record proves that not one jot, not one tittle of what Obama has done, gets reversed. But that's immaterial anyway - Romney is not going to win the election against Obama. That's fact as far as I'm concerned.

And if by some miracle against all the mind boggling corruption coming in this election in November, that the Socialist from MA becomes President Elect, it will not change either a jot nor a tittle from the direction this culture heads the Republic, or God's judgment on this nation that has gone moreso far astray than even Ancient Israel went.

Why not take your jots and tittles back to the bible and figure out how your November vote isn’t an act of worship. By that time all there will be left in any practical sense is naked choice between two sinners. The time to prepare was months, years ago.

You are simply trying to soothe your own conscience from the consequences of what you propose. Why not just confess that you’re thinking that if America is going to have evil, why not get the most evil and get it done as soon as possible.

On this we agree in total. AMEN!!!!

Get busy. We have a Great Awakening to ignite.

Because without it, forget it - we have no hope of surviving what leads us to absolute ruin. Time to do II Chronicles 7:14

None of that includes who we vote for, but Conservatism is supposed to be a way of life, a worldview built on our foundations. Compromising those foundations lead us to where we are right now.... on the precipice of disaster and utter ruination.

That would be wishful thinking on your part, perhaps some bizarre form of projection.

Evil is evil. There is no grading system of sin with God. I suppose if you wanted to toss in Abomination in there you could - and both Romney and Obama share the distinction of supporting and promoting such. I've repented of compromising with evil for expedience's sake, because the fruits prove, it's still evil as far as God, our Principles and Foundations are concerned.

And then they will blame us for Romney's loss. Romney loses because he doesn't provide a contrast with Obama. Santorum was exactly right about that. Santorum made mistakes in campaign discipline, but he was exactly right about that.

Obama just has to say, "You did that too." to everything Romney brings up.

ObamaCare -- You did that too.

Abortion -- You did that too

Big Government -- You did that too.

Taxes -- You did that too.

Global Warming -- You did that too.

Gay Marriage -- You did that even more than I have.

I do not buy the accusation or accept any responsibility for what the Ruling Class has done to box frightened Republicans into thinking they have to vote for Romney to save their skins from Obama. Which is why those like you accuse those of us who stand on principle by voting for a Conservative in November, with handing Obama the election.

We do not accept the charge, or the premise of the charge.

As far as Grace from God, nothing we do earns that. We are held accountable and will be judged on what we say, do and think.

Knowing that God views sin as He does, and that scripture says God hates those who lie and sow discord among brethren (Obama and Romney both), I will be able to give account of what I do this November with knowing I stood on principles that earn me no condemnation from the Father.

I will work out my own salvation with fear and trembling over God's Word, I will not act out of fear of Obama and the people who want him to be their king and vote for a man with nearly the same ideology and public record as Obama.

I tend to agree with OCC. I think Romney will win. The police state that has been carefully and incrementally constructed by both paties and all presidents during the last four administrations has yet to be fully implemented. Romney will be the one to throw the switch and light it up.

Obama would have been resisted, but all the Quisling “conservatives” will support a Republican authoritarian state. The move from Obama to Romney will be similar to a change from Nero to Diocletian. The oppressions from Washington D.C. will be more thorough, consistent and effective. It will delay the collapse of the Washington government.

No, but he has certainly set up a ‘heads I win, tails you lose” scenario in the November Democratic primary.
