I will call her what I dame well please! She earned it.

What you see as intelligence has nothing to do with willing and easy prey to be bought off and a sell out - she probably thought it was an intelligent move for her politically. This is my country but she used it for her political ladder. Wisdom knows what you sow you reap and wisdom knows it comes LATER than you sow and MORE than you sow. So much for intelligence.

I don’t need to hear from you again. I have no time for the clueless and deceived. It’s six months trying to teach what now is confirmed as UNTEACHABLE. Get lost - mitt could only be where he is with voters like you.

Neither. That’s what is known as a false dilemma.

Let me repeat: I don’t support pro-choice democrats.

Its just plain low to use that word to describe her because she endorsed Romney.

Your hatred for Romney is not only pathological, but pathetic. I had nothing to do with Romney getting the nomination and neither did she.

You’re even selling out your country because of it.

If there wasn’t so much at stake, I wouldn’t even bother calling a wretch like you on it.

It's not the smugness of driving a Prius. It's the smugness of a construction worker leaving out rivets in a bridge to get back at his boss....sacrificing everyone else's safety on the bridge.

Perfect.

Romney is neither pro choice or a Democrat. He’s always been a Republican and he renounced his pro choice position.

Will Obama ever do that?

Straw men is all you have.

Want to try again?

the same that this nation has faced every four years since its inception.

WRONG!! This was a slam dunk easiest election - there was ONLY TWO candidate with credentials to be president to even consider and Perry dropped out! No Conservative wanted mitt. NEWT was the clear choice. EASY, VERY EASY! And another slam dunk is he is the ONLY ONE who could beat Obama.

Every other year we compared all the candidates on each subject weakness/strength. And every other year - we didn't have a LIBERAL who HAD to stack the debates for his needed protection. Mitt has been working on this for before '08!

Conservatives WILL get someone to run that they can vote for - so take your hopes off of Christians, Conservatives and Patriots to vote for your pro homo baby killing socialistic style healthcare candidate. It's not going to happen - you need liberal votes and you are on the WRONG site for that. This is not your audience so get lost.

Fascinating. So, Newt endorses Romney BEFORE Michelle does, and you blame her for what Newt does? That’s assinine.

Newt spent himself into a fiscal oblivion that Michelle and the others chose not to. Does that speak well of Newt as a conservative?

Michelle is a great Christian woman with an excellent Christian husband.

We all would do well to follow their examples.

Because she lost a political primary and then endorses the winner, she’s a whore? Will you use the same insult on Palin if she endorses Mitt?

“Romney is neither pro choice or a Democrat. He’s always been a Republican and he renounced his pro choice position.”

Yeah...that was this week...ha ha.

When will he renounce his love for socialized medicine?

When will he renounce his love for tyrannical government mandates?

When will he renounce his support for cap & trade?

When will he renounce his endorsement of the assault weapons ban?

When will he renounce $50 Romneycare abortions?

When will he renounce his support for a “progressive tax system”.?

When will he renounce his class warfare tax plan defining the “rich” at $200k...$50k less than Zero?

When will he renounce his support of the claims of “man made global warming”?

When will he renounce forcing Catholic hospitals to provide contraception and abortions on demand?

When will he renounce his support for liberal judges?

When will he renounce his claim of being a “severe conservative” and slink back under a rock with the rest of the socialist sleaze?

Let me know when that happens.

I actually agree with you about Newt...I voted for him and helped give him one of two states he carried!

It doesn't matter one bit though....he couldn't get enough others to vote for him. Perry? He was my first pick! But he dropped...that why I voted for Gingrich. BTW, there was an entire chorus of "conservative" Freepers that did everything in their power to force him out. Gardasil, illegal lover, Trans Texas Corridor, blah, blah, blah.

None of that matters now. Its done...Romney won. We are stuck with him.

It is him or Obama! There is no "do over", no mulligan.

Face the fact. Try reality for a change. This is politics. If Mitt doesn't deliver, try to unseat him in 2016...but for our nation's sake, GET RID OF OBAMA!

Your words are vile. If she is “Mitt’s whore,” your head needs to be examined. Otherwise, she, as well as Newt, are “Mitt’s whores,” with Newt jumping in first to get him some of that bailout pie from Daddy Romney.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Never put your faith in the man ( or woman in this case). They will ALWAYS disappoint you. Put your faith in their ideas..but never in the man.

So yes...her stock would drop significantly.

It’s like Gore and the global warming garbage. We know he doesn’t really believe it or care ( if he does believe it). We know this based upon his actions and his house, jet, etc. We know that Gore just carries on with the GW stuff because it keeps him politically relevant and he can generate support and money from certain constituencies.

Those who act principled and fold so quickly to rally around a candidate who was the unapologetic architect of socialized healthcare are frauds just like Al Gore.

Bachman caves on que is what I am saying. No help offered before now, not to a soul who remained after her, including Santorum, nor to the last conservative standing, between the socialist and Uncle Nutty. Olympia Snow did as much.

No where can you burp up that I blame her. She is but one of many who who were repelled by nothing if Romney’s name was on it. Those who suffered from his millions and his tactics got nothing from her.

The outcome was pretty well crafted from the beginning. She figured that out and rode that pony home without a peep.

I won’t waste my vote or campaign support on a socialist turd like Romney. If you are into socialism, gun control, and tax payer sponsored abortion, he’s probably a good candidate for you....not saying you are.....but you certainly own it when you knowingly vote for it.

Obama has to go, and Romney is the only bridge we’ve got.

That’s the way it is. I don’t like it, but it is reality.

You might be happier with Obama, but not me.

Enough of this BS.

Amen, A.Hun. Enough already.

It's Romney vs a hard-core leftist arrogant "social justice" Marxist punk. The choice is simple to me.

God bless Michele Bachmann... we were in DC on 9/12/09 and during the contentious "ObamaCare weekend" in March 2010. Michele Bachmann (and Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, and other conservative Republicans) were out there in the trenches with us, every step of the way. I will never forget that.

No, she just came all the way out of the closet. She’s always been in his camp. Had you forgotten how she back-stabbed her supporters? Remember how green-eyed jealous she was of Palin?

I liked Newt’s ideas. I don’t like him whoring out his endorsement to Romney.

I generally have great respect for what you post, but your words on this amaze me.

Newt is the one who first endorses Romney, asks for a bailout (because he’s in deep debt) and says ‘we all need to unite against Obama,’ but Michelle simply following Newt in endorsing and not needing a bailout makes her ‘someone who comes out of the closet?’. That is beneath you.

None of them do that out right...it’s just not Politically polite not to at least support Romney. No difference then in business with CEO’s Etc. It’s just the way it plays.

However, I’m convinced completely the voter is the least of their concerns and all this is like a stadium game where we are simply spectators cheering for which every player is hot for them moment. But all the players know the games been fixed....they only have to make a good show for us.

Good grief Romney went before the RNC and declared his win, and not a word from any he didn’t have the delegates...and he left half the voters of the US out of the loop entirely! Not a word from any candidates or the party in opposition to that move. All was quiet.......all was according to plan.

Will you use the same insult on Palin if she endorses Mitt?

Which Palin IS going to do - just like Perry, Bachmann, Newt, Santorum, Cain and pretty much every other Republican. The meltdown here is going to be epic, especially for those that have delusions that she is still somehow going to manage to be the nominee (and yes, there are actually people who still believe this).

Michelle Bachmann is a real deal conservative. Tea Party to the core, and our ally.

She knows what's at stake in this election, and 'keeping her mouth shut' is obviously not an option....no matter how cynical you may be about it.

Every conservative had better be about getting rid of Obama, and that's obviously the decision Bachmann has made. To stand for America's survival.
