Cain thinks Romney has good judgement? That tells me all I need to know about Cain’s judgement.

She has the same choice the rest of us do. Vote for Mitt or watch Obama take another 4 years.

I won’t bad mouth her. We are in the same boat.

I am still not going to vote for Romney.

I know people who are going to vote for Obama. They are voting for what they believe in.

I know you think you're falling on a sword or something but you're just endorsing what Obama has done to this country.

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.

I am not “falling on my sword.” I am making my own decision about my vote. I will vote for house and senate. There is no way I am going to vote for someone with no principles to be our Commander in Chief. I will defend your right to vote for whomever you believe in. Please at least respect my right to do the same. Thank you.

This would be a great time to demonstrate unity, for when “we” unite behind one truly outstanding conservative in the future.

Like by not trashing the recent candidates, one by one.

But Jim Robinson doesn’t support Romney!

She has helped promote the cause of freedom as more than anybody there, hurting her forward mobility through the ranks of leadership as a result. You are going to have to realize that they are all going to end up backing the GOP nominee. It is how it has been for time in memoriam.

You are of course completely correct. All the Republicans will support Romney. That's what political party's do. They wouldn't function as an organization if the membership didn't circle the wagons for general election campaigns.

As for Bachmann, I think she is one of the better leaders we have. She probably ran for President a little before she was really ready. I don't fault her for it, she was willing to take a chance and put herself out there and fight. I think when Perry entered the race and skyrocketed in the polls, she felt compelled to go after him and ended up not looking very presidential in the process. Just went a little over the top on the HPV thing in my opinion. She will probably run again and be stronger next time around.

BTW. I see those anger management classes are paying off. Your down to about half the normal amount of the usual insults.

I do believe that person you were responding to just might be the most demented, vile poster on FR right now. Calling Michele Bachmann "mitt's whore" is simply disgusting. I only hope that people that stumble on to FR don't see its posts and think such comments are representative of the majority here.

I'm not. I think it stinks to high heaven. It infers that somehow we work for Mitt Romney, or the Republican Party.

Fact is, y'all are building a bridge to nowhere, with grossly substandard materials. A copy of the democrat bridge of the same quality.

And then you can't understand those who don't care to be subverted into wasting their substance riveting such a monstrosity together for you.

You’re off your nut.

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.

It’s cute when you spew your ignorant, ill-informed crap at me.

Since you feel so informed as to regurgitate your imagined opinions, carry on.

Doubtless your spittle will be amusing when sprayed about again.

I thank you for your faint praise of my position. I realize that some reciprocal acknowledgement of your stance is expected.

You're not the first or only person to lay out his reasons for doing so. I understand what you say you think you are doing.

I also understand what Obama supporters say they think they are doing.

Neither deserves respect. I'm sorry.

I cannot imagine not respecting someone’s right to cast one’s vote, or to not cast one’s vote, the way they see fit. I have never been that arrogant. And no. I certainly did not expect you to reciprocate. I never thought that would happen. Nor does it bother me.

That's this whole election in a nutshell. I don't like the choice but I'll be da#ned if I won't do everything in my power to keep Obama from winning reelection.

Barring some unforseen circumstances, I will be voting for Romney in November. It's all we've got.

Get back at your boss? What's wrong with you - THIS IS OUR COUNTRY! This isn't a game.

This is one nation under God, ever think who the REAL boss is?

I know people who are going to vote for Obama. They are voting for what they believe in.

I have no doubt you do - what voter wouldn't vote for who/what they believe in??

I have voted for who/what I believe in and will CONTINUE to do so.

My vote didn't bring barry in and it won't be used to bring mitt in. You mittbots created this mess, Newt supporters didn't - it's your problem now so go begging for votes for your master mitt from liberals - that's something they can believe in.

Moral equivalence. Voting for Obama is flat out treachery to the Republic. Communism, class warfare, race hatred are still affronts to human rights. Period.

"Seeing fit" to vote for one guy or the other based on policy differences is one thing, voting for someone who is hostile to the existence of the country that soldiers have died for is immoral. Certainly not "respectable."

Keep an open mind, sure, but for God's sake don't let your brain fall out.

So you were a Newt supporter in 2008? Really?

Because this mess wasn't created during this year's primary, dumbass.

How about you just calm your junior ass down and quit blaming people who disagree with you.

You'll be happier and your incontinence will probably be less.

But that is YOUR opinion. I am trying to imagine the thought process one would have to go through to arrive at the conclusion that you have the right to tell someone what to do with Their vote. I would never, never tell someone else how they should vote. It is their vote. You vote for whomever you want. But do not presume to tell others what to do with their vote. That is amazingly arrogant.

I didn't vote for Mittens, dingdong.

Cainiacs and Bachmann one-issue conservatives and Santorum fans shot us all in the foot.

All Romney did was keep smiling while the unsatisfiables shot each other in the head.

If conservatives will get together and settle on a conservative candidate at the beginning of the primaries, then the RINO's won't stand a chance.

If conservatives run off to the wilderness of a third party, then the country doesn't stand a chance.

Aha! See how you've had to morph your complaint!?

First you were shocked that I didn't "respect" your choice.

Now you claim I'm telling you how to vote.

I did no such damn thing.

I posted my opinion. You posted yours. You respect my choice, or right or whatever, I'm not sure. I don't respect your decision.

I'm not doing anything to you except perhaps providing a substrate for your own insecurities to grow.

"Gosh! Why wouldn't anyone respect me for being such a martyr for Edmund Burke!? I can't imagine anyone not respecting me for doing what seems so righteous to me!?"

She supports Mitt’s election.

You seem hell bent on bringing Sarah's name into your deception because you want credibility . She and Todd supported and voted for NEWT! She is a true conservative!! Get that through your liberal deceptive brain. Your twisting of words is so noted and you are hereby known as not credible. Her saying to bring the primary to the end doesn't mean she supports POS mitt.

Her dollar would be cursed if she gave a dollar to support him. Her saying go out and vote to beat Barry ISN'T supporting Mitt - there is only one guy standing - IDIOT. So stop with your deception - it's only showing that ugliness within you. Give it up - true conservatives, Christians and Patriots are NOT voting for POS pro homo cult leader baby killing candidate!

It would be a big mistake for principled conservatives like Bachman or Santorum, or Newt to endorse Romney.

Another 4 years of Obama will be checked by congress and to some extent by the courts. The world won’t end with Obama’s reelection. However, if the likes of Romney in the GOP learn that in the end the conservatives run to whoever the Washingtom obcom nominates, the damage to conservatives will last generations.

This is a political choice, the same that this nation has faced every four years since its inception. Not a bullet.

How about dispensing with the straw man arguments.

Either Romney or Obama will be President.

Which one do you prefer?!?

Say it!
