I'm not 'actively pushing Romney.' I'm actively understanding how bad Obama is. I know you're not able to grasp that reality, but will refrain from labeling what that makes you.

What I will say is that you're dumber than a box of rocks about what the MARXIST PUNK is doing to this country, as are your pals Moe and Curly (one of whom is the laughing stock of the whole conservative world with her vile posts about Michelle Bachmann [mercifully deleted by the Mods] and her braindead attack on Jeff Head yesterday.....one of the most respected and consistent conservatives on Free Republic).

I tried to help you understand about Obama yesterday, but to no avail.

I wouldn't be surprised if any of you get contacted to be a part of the next Obama administration, since you're BFF with the 'turd.' I'm sure the folks at DU are in love with you.

At any rate, I'm now familiar enough with your name to avoid you at all costs. Continue your Obama-isn't-such-a-bad-guy crusade wherever you wish.

Legitimate conservatives will ignore you and your campaign against the country.

And for me, that begins now.

All the qualities you have listed don’t mean a hill of beans to some of the dunderheads on here, ohioWfan, I think many are quite young—compared to us!—altho I’m sure I have a few years on you—and probably not terribly knowledgeable about history.

I guarantee that these dunderheads know nothing about history, GC. I guarantee that they don't know how deadly it will be to this country and to our Constitution to have Obama appoint another 2 unqualified, racist, Marxist SC Justicies.

I guarantee that they don't understand what Obama's promise to Medvedev means to America (they probably don't even know about the Cold War, or how dangerous Russia is even today).

I guarantee that they don't know squat about the Weimar Republic, and how close we are to it right now, and more importantly how much worse it will be if Obama gets a second term. (If they did, they wouldn't be pimping another four years for him).

They ridiculed me yesterday simply because I understand the threat, and they don't. (Their idiotic words didn't bother me, other than knowing that there are people out there who actually think they're conservatives, and don't have a functioning brain cell or any historical knowledge).

If we don't ALL send the Marxist back to Chicago, this country WILL NOT RECOVER in our lifetimes.

You and I have a number of years on these little ones, I'm sure, but I can't see that the country will recover, even in their lifetimes if we don't get this Marxist Usurper out of DC.

FORTUNATELY, WE ARE THE MAJORITY, and I believe we will get the job done.

Making excuses doesn’t excuse the fact you called Greyfoxx a NAZI. THe post (and I believe thread) have since been deleted

And we weren’t equating MORMONS with Islam, we were showing the similarities between MORMONISM and Isalm. Also, it is common knowledge that many LDS (espeically in times of war) take a “religious exemption” to service, like Mittens. You comments were still beyond the pale.

I don’t hate Mormons, if I did I would let them go their merry way to Hell. I love them (and you) enough to tell them the truth about Mormonism. I weep and pray for those trapped in Mormonism every day. I was once bound by those same chains and have been set free by Christ. I want the same for you and all LDS. That isn’t bigotry, that is love.

Jeff, you write well, and you are obviously too intelligent to fall for Smith’s lies. It is a dichotomy that saddens me. Use your brain and leave Mormonism.

Voting for a lesser of two evils to “buy us more time” or “to stop Obama” is not just giving up essential liberty, it’s giving up one’s faith and principles for the purpose of saving their own interests.

God should come first. First before family, and before country. That’s the priority our Founder’s adhered to.

Putting family or nation before God is idolatry, and maybe we need to take a look and collectively ask ourselves if that is the reason we are not being blessed with honorable and convicted leaders?

BINGO!

Good question, and I don't know the answer. I haven't followed Cheney's politics in recent years. I'm guessing he has no interest in future political positions and simply believes Romney can defeat Obama, but I'm only guessing when I write that.

Do you have a better idea? If so I'd like to know.

What took you SO LONG? You are, at least, three years behind!

I tried to help you understand about Obama yesterday, but to no avail.

And now you are trying to play teacher?? LOL!!

Where you on another site hearing about his goodness or something? It's hard to believe someone could be that clueless. Now that the primary is at it's end, anyone could see how not serious you took it!

Save your rant, sleepy!

@ CAWW (post 263): I respect your view about Santorum being in this race for himself, and since you're from Pennsylvania, you have better on-the-ground information than me. I don't see things the same way you do, but I'm open to being convinced. We have four years now to give Santorum the kind of national-level vetting that probably needed to be done long ago. My guess is the bottom line will be that you and I will still disagree, but at least those of us outside Pennsylvania will have more information than we did in the weeks after he won Iowa and became a national candidate.

@ OhioWFan (post 265): I need to be careful here because Free Republic has made its rules clear about no advocacy for Romney. Conscience is important to me and I don't know if I can pull the level for Romney. I still haven't yet decided what I will do this fall, and in my state, which is a swing state, my vote actually may make a significant difference so it's not as easy to cast a protest vote for the Constitution Party as it would be in a solid red or solid blue state. The 2008 election here in Missouri was so close that the presidential winner wasn't known for quite some time after the election, and the election could easily have been determined by the vote in this state, as happened in Florida, if the 2008 national vote had not been so decisively for Obama. However, if I decide to vote for Romney I won't be advocating that view here, just as I don't go into the houses of my Democratic friends and attack the Democratic Party when they've asked me not to discuss that subject in their homes.

@ Cripplecreek (post 273): I fully agree with you that Romney has won the Republican primary by winning states and parts of states that he has little if any chance of winning this fall. That is a major problem for Romney, and I think it's a clear indicator that he's headed for a disastrous defeat this fall. Regarding your congressman (post 245), he's absolutely correct that as a freshman, he will be isolated and attacked if he doesn't support Romney, which could cost him committee and subcommittee memberships and torpedo his efforts to help his constituents through legislation. That's even more true if he's in a difficult district and has to rely on campaign fundraising help from colleagues. Many of us thought 2012 would be a Republican blowout year and weren't as aggressive in local fundraising as for the presidential candidates. Now, with Romney at the head of the ticket, we could see a lot of good down-ticket Republicans lose their seats and they need every dollar they can get if they have an aggressive Democrat opponent.

@ DallasSun (post 344): Thanks for your thanks!

I never said Obama wasn’t a turd. He is...maybe even moreso than Romney. What I did say is that I refuse to support a turf like him or Romney.

Your good friend Romney that you are pushing is unapologetic about pushing govt mandates and enacting socialized healthcare. He also has a record of assault weapons bans, supporting cap & trade, global warming, gay marriage, tax payer funded abortions, appointing liberal judges, etc. not to mention he picks his current position based upon political expediency.

Those are not conservative positions. They may be “severe conservative” positions, but not positions any conservative would take.

You and the other Romneybots get all bent out of shape, when folks like me point you to his record. I take the position that a principled conservative doesn’t just acquiesce and fold towards liberalism just because the candidate has an R behind his name. If you are so proud of Romney, why do you get upset when folks point out his record. If you are voting for him, you are giving your consent for his ideas and platform.

You claim you are voting against Obama...fine I’ll see your anti-Obama vote, and raise you an anti-Romney vote.

If you can be ok with Romney’s liberal positions...fine go vote for him and shut up. Just don’t come over here attacking conservatives for not bowing to your socialist buddy. Conservative principles mean something to some us. Some of us will never vote for a candidate who enacted tax payer abortions, govt. mandates, and socialized healthcare. If you are ok with that...fine. It tells me all I need to know about you.

By the way, I think my stance is the same as Jim’s.

You have no problem of accusing me of being an Obama supporter just because I refuse to support Romney.

Do you have guts enough to say the same to him?

Here’s your chance to put up or shut up once and for all.

Your secret is out, PNSN. You make things up out of whole cloth, and nothing you say makes any sense.

You are a loose canon without restraint, and thus a laughing stock. And not just with members in long and good standing of FR, and solid conservatives with functioning brain cells.

With lurkers as well. And, most likely with the Obama administration, even though they surely adore you for blackening the reputation of conservatism and living up to leftist caricatures.

In other words, the less you say, the better you look. And so, I will no longer respond to your mindless taunts, and even though I enjoy the challenge of remaining rational in the face of the absurdities spewing forth from your finger tips, I will resist the temptation so you have one less enabler. :)

Bye.

“FORTUNATELY, WE ARE THE MAJORITY, and I believe we will get the job done.”

And fortunately we’re moms and grandmoms and we have seen a lot of temper tantrums and are too familiar with the expression “...but I WANT it...”. And the sometimes reply “Be careful or you’ll get something you don’t want”.

Remember that old saying “Never underestimate the power of a woman?’ There are some pretty creepy women running around on the other side with half a brain and expecting their daddy—this time Obama—is going to take care of them forever. Not with my money if I can help it. We grew up when people worked for what they got, or did without, and we managed to take care of ourselves while helping those who truly couldn’t. What a bunch of whiners!!!!!

And there are countless people today who worked for what they got too and darned if they’re going to let the Government put them on the giving end to those who are too lazy to work. People are crying for jobs and struggling to keep body and soul together and haven’t taken the 17 vacations Mrs. B.O. has—at our expense. I could say don’t get me started or I’ll be here all day, but looks like I already have. Only the need to replenish groceries is bringing this to an end. Keep posting ohioWfan.

I wonder if you were at The Great American Ball Park Halloween night before the election when W was there. I knew standing in the line with all those people that something magical was happening, that Algore was going to be just an unpleasant memory. We can only hope and pray that Obama will be the same soon.

And what if the Ruling Class decided in conjunction with the MarxoFascists that keeping Obama’s ‘fundamental transformation’ in power was to their better interests, and that is why they forcefed us Romney?

Really? Like the primary voters had no say? How about Santorum or Newt bowing out instead of splitting the vote? That had nothing to do with it uh? How about Mitt has been campaigning since Jan 2009!! Did that have anything to do with it? How about money somebody gave millions to Mitt! If they thought Mitt wouldn’t win they would not have backed him.

He's not the one who said Obama is no more than a 'turd' and that talking about how dangerous the Marxist is, is ridiculous.

YOU are.

So I am talking to YOU. Stop hiding behind others like a coward, and admit the absurdity of the things you have posted, and that you have ridiculed those of us who actually understand who Barack Obama is and the danger he poses.

Mock away if that's what you need to do to feel like you're somebody, but you're in a tiny minority on this forum if you think Obama isn't all that bad.

Obama IS going to lose. God is not finished with America yet.

I believe that with all my heart.

And the extras from the cast of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" who are posting on this thread, aren't going to stop me from posting the reality that Obama is MARXIST and he is EVIL, and that America will not survive four more years of this EVIL and recover in our lifetime.

What I am doing, and will continue to do, is list the horrific things Barack Obama is doing and will continue to do at an even more extreme level if he's reelected.

I will continue to point out that if Obama is reelected, we will get two more SC Justices like Kagan and Sotomayor....or worse. We will have an increasingly terroristic EPA, no drilling, no fracking, no coal industry. We will have increasingly hostile actions against the free exercize of religion. We will have an increasingly worsening economy, and the punishment of small businesses and a war against the free market. We will continue to have a CinC who abhors our troops, who hates our allies and loves our enemies.

If pointing out the truth about Barack Obama gets me in trouble on a conservative forum, so be it.

I will take my chances because, deep down, I don't think any of us will be banned for hating what Barack Obama is doing to this country we love.

Not worth the time. Take the pledge: I will not engage in conversation with a big government GOP-e enabler. I will not respond to their posts, threads or threats of any kind. They are as dead to me, as if they do not exist. I will not campaign for them, money bomb them or anyone who supports them. They are not relevant to my focus and will not stop our conservative movement.

What more do want me to say? Obama is a really bad turd. Romney is also a turd. They are two turds in a turd pod. As a matter of fact they are both dangerous turds.

You are changing the argument.

No one is debating that Obama is a really bad guy. He’s probably a bigger turd than Romney. Im pretty sure everyone on this site knows that. I’m just saying that Romney is a big enough turd that I won’t support him either.

The discussion we have been having is in regards to me not supporting the socialist turd that you are pushing. Thats the issue. You like Romney...which is fine. I won’t support a turd like him.

I have a no liberal socialist turd policy. Romney and Obama both fit in that category.

Read your own posts. "Turd" is not that bad. You refused to call him anything worse, ergo, the obvious conclusion, 'not so bad.'

In addition you laughed repeatedly at the comments made about the danger Marxism poses to America.....ergo, Obama is not that bad.

I will now take your second option, and 'shut up.'

I've proven my point, and no whining on your part will take that away.

Have a nice life in "Obama-isn't-that-bad" land. In the mean time, it's a lovely afternoon here and I'm going to go out and plant some greenery and enjoy God's magnificent creation.......

......while there is still some personal liberty left in this beloved nation of ours.....no thanks to Barack Obama, Marxist dictator, amoral, atheistic, vile, vindictive, rotten person, thief, anti-American racist creep.

But, by all means, keep throwing these kinds of things out at people who are, in reality, focused solely on continuing and growing our conservative movement.

“”Turd” is not that bad. You refused to call him anything worse, ergo, the obvious conclusion, ‘not so bad.’”

Show me where I refused to call him anything worse...please repost my words...if you can find them.

I think what you will discover is that this is all in your head. Your anger over me (and others) exposing Romney’s record has caused things in your head to become blurred. Its ok....

In my book, “turd” is about as bad as it gets. Would it help if I added some profanity?

“In addition you laughed repeatedly at the comments made about the danger Marxism poses to America.....ergo, Obama is not that bad.”

I laughed because you are spewing the Romney chicken little talking points.

I believe America is too strong and Obama is too weak for America to be “Over” because of one man. Romney would like to scare you into voting for him. Don’t fall for it. The US has withstood more troubling times than this. Obama nor any liberal turd is strong enough or powerful enough to bring our country to its knees. The American people would never stand for that. You give Obama too much credit.

There is no doubt Obama has been bad for this country...just like all liberals. (Romney included).

We are in violent agreement about the fact that Obama is bad....or a turd as I say.

We disagree about Romney. I say he is turd as well....you are campaigning for him and attacking others for not supporting him.

Wow that would be funny if it were not so pathetic.

There is an old saying that Figures lie and liars figure. The first part is wrong, figures don't lie, but there are people like you who try to use figures to distort.

But your attempt was so lame a 3rd grader could see though it.

I see that you didn't mention your absurd claim that Romney would be lucky to get 40% of the vote. It was a comment that was so far from reality that I understand you trying to pass.

But I'm still willing to make a wager with you about the accuracy of that statement.

Pathetic attempt on your part to deflect from the utter absurdity of you first post.

Oh......and one more thing, Earthdweller, don't you dare get in our way here in Ohio as we work our tails off to get rid of big government, statist, Marxist Sherrod Brown, and replace him with Tea Party Conservative, Iraq War vet, pro-life Josh Mandel.

I will not engage in conversation with you if you do that to those of us who are conservative activists.

Nope. I won't. :)

“Your continued lies about me cannot change that. “

I didn’t realize I had lied about you.

Let me see....you don’t like Obama and you plan to vote for Romney....where am I wrong? I don’t recall making any other statements....other than the fact that by voting for Romney you are giving your consent to his record and positions.

I certainly didn’t accuse you of being an Obama supporter...like you did me. I did accuse of you of being melodramatic.

“I am obeying your command and shutting up.”....I guess you never found any of my posts that would support your accusations about me.

Thanks for stopping by.

Axelrod does not think beyond his taskmaster’s second term. I do. That is the difference.

Parties wane and parties grow, if they can break through the cabal of the media. 18% is a number that cannot be denied a microphone. The Romney/Obama tandem, — and tandem it is — effectively denies us that microphone.

Further, if already with the microphone conservatism cannot garner beyond 18% then there is no point prolonging the agony: while America still has some fiber left, America should see what unconservative policies would bring. We are practical people. Maybe we need a practical lesson.

Obama gave us the Tea party. Not bad at all. Maybe we need more Obama?

I cannot figure out why would anyone with conservative convictions want Romney. Didn’t we have enough centrism since 1988 already?

I believe that you are right, ohioWfan. I have wondered if Obama is God’s warning to us of what we are in danger of losing. That unchecked evil can so easily destroy what your son and mine, and millions of others, have fought and died for. Right after George W. Bush was declared the winner in Florida, my much younger hairdresser said to me “I see the hand of God in this election”. She was so rigt. Only He knows what would have happened if Al Gore had been our President on 9/11.

A re-elected Obama will use countless Executive Orders and probably hundreds of Czars accountable to no one but him, Czar in chief, to run around and over Congress. The EPA will issue rule after rule to bring down our coal, oil and gas industries. We have already seen the beginnings of this. This man without a past, who was never vetted by anyone and is praised and adored by the media even as he spends trillions of dollars bankrupting the future, must be defeated. we must humbly gather together and pray that God will open the eyes and hearts of people, that they may see and work to defeat the evil around us.

Like the primary voters had no say?

You might want to read up on what the Ruling Class Machine for Romney did at many caucuses this primary; Cook County machine thuggery. Our vote was severely diminished in many ways including outright machine strongarming, silencing protest of unannounced rules changes to hand Romney unearned delegates. Along with that we had the Obama media pushing for Romney as the frontrunner and only 'viable' candidate from the moment he announced. Add Rove, and the sphere of "conservative" columnists and pundits pushing Romney and attacking every single Conservative in the field from Palin to Gingrich in conjunction with the Obama media, Conservative voices were deliberately drowned out.

Then given I recognize machine politics from my days as a precinct Captain in NW Suburban Chicago, we will never know the amount of fraud that this entire election cycle is rife with.

How about money somebody gave millions to Mitt! If they thought Mitt wouldn’t win they would not have backed him.

How about the millions to McCain? He didn't win. How about the millions to Gingrich? He just hung it up. Money does not always necessarily pick winners, although it does help keep a campaign going.

Sometimes money is put up for a fighter to win his bouts, but in the final contest, he is told to take a K.O. for the bigger interests.

You are exactly right, GoldwaterChick, and don't you find it amazing that anyone who is a conservative is willing to ignore the very real threat to the future, to the very survival of this country and enable him to be reelected?

I received an insult from Earthdweller above (who lacked the courage to insult me directly, and I'm sure will not have the guts to respond to this either).

The accusation was that I am part of the GOP Establishment issuing vain threats about how dangerous Obama was.

What he, in his abject ignorance, actually doesn't understand is that the GOP-e is the group on the right side of the aisle, who doesn't understand the threat of Communism and the thugocracy we are now enduring, which will get worse with another four years, while legitimate Conservatives do. The Establishment Republicans just think it's about political control, and not the very survival of this country. They don't take Obama seriously, and agree with Earthdweller that warning about Obama is ridiculous.

Any time you listen to the Establishment Republicans you hear the same "Obama is no big deal" that you hear from the very vocal minority here.

The Establishment Republicans, the Marxists and the minority nutcase pseudo-cons on this forum are all in lockstep that Obama is no big deal and that bringing up the danger he poses is political posturing.

So Earthdweller, the inside the beltway GOP, and David Axlerod and Jay Carney are all on the same page, that we, who are legitimate conservatives and praying for the survival of our country, are just blowing hot air about how bad Obama really is.

It's like we're in the Twilight Zone, GC, but I too, am praying that God will open the eyes and hearts of people so that we will ALL see the very real evil of Barack Obama, and work to defeat him.

I flush turds, the mittbots inspect them to see which one is better to eat. There is no talking to those who have an appetite for turds. The liberals did the same in '08, now it's their turn to do the liberal thing.

I have a no liberal socialist turd policy. Romney and Obama both fit in that category.

Yep, let them fight amongst themselves as they are all hell bent to go over the cliff together.

Oh...the horror! What's with you...you insecure or something? If not, then just let it rest.

You would like that - don't show that JEFF HEAD does anything deliberately wrong - after all he's been here 14 yrs - he privileged. And in liberal form - he questions me if I'm insecure and I should give it a rest because he wants to do as he d*mn well pleases and not be held accountable - a la clinton style - 'because I can'.

What a piece of Romney work you are! Turn around WHAT YOU DID wrong on the one you wronged. You definitely have a common thread uniting you and Romney.

And now comes the Romney twist about you being on a public board - that is NOT THE TOPIC, you NOT pinging me when talking about me in your whole post is the topic. The Romney twist dance in action - changing the topic when he couldn't answer what was the TOPIC.

What you 'normally' do? How about what you DELIBERATELY do - that's intent and comes from the heart. And you speak about manners after what you just did. The Romney twist game won't work on Obama - he'll look like the retard he is - as is ANYONE who mimics him.

you are obviously too intelligent to fall for Smith’s lies.

Well, he proved that to be false. So what 'appears' obvious isn't always true. And that is what deception is all about.

Thaks for another BUMP.

Re-read Post 436, particularly the part about courtesy, respect, and how people act...then read all the name calling, accusations, judgements, etc., etc. you have made on this thread alone. Maybe you'll get the picture.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Or not...your choice. But I do thank you for continueing to BUMP this thread.

Ah yes I'm dismissed, I expected something like that as a way of covering your distortions.

You claimed not many Representatives were supporting Romney, when in fact a significant number, about 43% and growing, were in fact supporting him. Falsehood number 1.

Then you claimed he would be lucky to get 40% of the vote, which history clearly indicates that barring a significant 3rd party candidate, he would get significantly more votes than you said. I believe you even know this is a not only a significant distortion but a major one. I offered to make you a bet on that one.

So you have been caught in two significant distortions, of course one might also consider them lies.

And your response is to call me names. It's pretty clear to anyone who reads this which one of us is truthful and which one is not.

Have a good day, I will.

We live in an area of townhomes with with many former Soviet Union owners; people who lived in rentals, worked very hard, saved their money and are now homeowners. In fact almost every home that has come on the market in the past few years has been purchased by this particular group. It is a very desirable neighborhood especially for young families. Each home is meticulously cared for; these people are fierce in their allegiance to the United States and refer to themselves as “we Americans”. I feel a special tie to them since two of my grandparents came from Ukraine.

Every single one of them is bewildered by the turn America has taken. They all say they lived thru the horrors of Communism and Socialism—it is why they risked everything and came here with such hope for the future—freedom and the ability to achieve a successful life on their own. We are amazed by their children who are high achievers in school, respectful and responsible and friendly.

One came to our door the other day for a second time—a high school assignment. He was asking for our opinions on the Vietnam war; we were amazed this is actually being taught in our local high school. We would like to meet his teacher. His earlier assignment had been our reactions to 9/11; the emotions we felt, etc. His parents are from Azerbaijan(?(—his mother has a master degree in English)—they are so incredibly thankful that they were able to come to America. When we heard that “go home” words had been sprayed on their windshield, my husband advised them to notify the police. They were amazed that when the police came that they were actually concerned about the incident—other neighborhoods had reported similar vandalism. Where they came from people were afraid of the police. They are holding on tightly to the American dream. I’m sure they are praying very hard that the dream does not become a nightmare.

All these parents cannot understand why Americans would stand for the policies toward socialism of Obama when they have failed everywhere else. And don’t they understand that they are in great danger of losing their rights and their liberty, that day by day the Govenment is controlling more and more, issuing orders of what is not permitted? A couple not allowed to build on property they bought because it is in wetlands, with water nowhere in sight. A young child being told the lunch her mother lovingly packed for her is bad and must be replaced by what the Government deems proper. The majority wishes being overturned by one disgruntled citizen who doesn’t like what is being done or said.

Wake up America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, before you are only a memory.

I add my thanks for the BUMP to Jeff's comments, and for the reminder to check out his link.

Jeff is a patriot, a thinker, a solid conservative, and filled with common sense and rational thought.

You, on the other hand.......

OWF, many of us have made a pledge to Jimrob not to engage with GOP-e enablers (Romney supporters). There will be no further discussion here. Good day.

BRAVA for that beautiful post, my friend! Thank you!

Those who have come from the Soviet Union and from totalitarian governments, see what the Obama administration is doing, and recoil in horror.

He is making America into the same kind of place as the countries they fled.

But, again, to some freepers, it's no big deal. He's just a 'turd'.......not a villain.......not an anti-American totalitarian.

And once again, I truly believe that these people are few and far between among conservatives.

MOST of us get it. Those who don't just scream loud.

Full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing.
