You obviously were not paying attention to what she was doing earlier.
She made it clear that she was a destroyer, and that the only reason she was “running” was her jealousy of Palin.
She has also made it easy for her opposition to knock her out of congress now. Shame IMO.
Good luck with that.....
I and some others figured out several years ago that the Republican Party is almost completely bereft of moral leadership.
Others are finally catching on.
The evidence is so overwhelming now that you have to shut your eyes to the truth to not see it.
The only actual pro-choice democRAT on the 2012 presidential ticket is Obama.
Go ahead, waste your precious vote in November. I really don't care.
Although Romney absolutely wasn't my choice to be the GOP presidential nominee, the choice is crystal clear to me. I refuse to vote (or vote indirectly via write-in or 'third party vote') for the far-left "social justice" Marxist punk to get another 4 years in order to completely destroy this country. He's done far enough damage already.
Another RINO, turncoat, commie-pinko, traitor, right, Romney haters?
More likely, you have’t the capacity to debate.
There is no bridge...it went down already...Romney and the Gop took it down. The foundations is gone...there is nothing solid to build on.
You are under an Illusion: .....something that deceives by producing a false or misleading impression of reality..... the state or condition of being deceived; misapprehension......an instance of being deceived.... that represents what is perceived in a way different from the way it is in reality.
What Romney, and Obama, and the Parties are building as nothing to do with the American people apart from the revenues we generate into their pockets to make a clear path for distributing that wealth where ever they determine...abroad. That's the bridge....that's the destination of both parties.
If we don't get rid of Obama this country is OVER.
And all the egotism and anonymous chutzpah in the world won't bring it back to us.
I heard Glenn Beck yesterday morning, and they were all kidding around, but Pat said that even if Romney ground up kittens and used them for fuel, he would vote for him............BECAUSE HE'S NOT A COMMUNIST!!!!
No matter what anyone says, Pat is right. I'm voting for the "NOT A COMMUNIST" candidate.
So everyone who wants Obama out of office is a ‘sell out.’
- - - - -
No, everyone who supports RINO Romney is a sell out.
I want Obama out of office as well, but Romney (the Pale Obama) isn’t the answer.
That isn't 'supporting' Romney. It's trying to save the country from immediate and permanent destruction by a dangerous, Marxist regime that has already made this beloved country of ours unrecognizable.
This Romney thing is turning into a cult - same patterns.
Just so you know...Newt has not endorsed Romney. Though the media is cleaverly implying as much. He did not do so.
>> “Which Palin IS going to do - just like Perry, Bachmann, Newt, Santorum, Cain and pretty much every other Republican.” <<
Palin will endorse when we have a nominee, no sooner. She has made that clear.
>> “ The meltdown here is going to be epic” <<
Your wish since you mistakenly arrived here.
There will be no melt.
I’ve been here since the summer of ‘97, and have been aware from the first day that the site attracted trolls like you, but has a natural strength, borne of the strength of Jim’s committment.
I’d like to predict that your zot flare will be especially green and sulphurous, bringing joy to all here. Keep on goading.
Nah. To this day Romney's positions and policies deny the God-given nature of rights. He thinks certain classes of human beings can have their most important rights stripped away by a democratic vote.
He's a pro-choice democrat, by definition.
He isn’t viable at all, that is an delusion. Obama will destroy him in the general.
Romney will destroy this country with a smile on his creepy face, same as Obama. He is a total lying scumbag and I will stand on my principles.
So everyone who wants Obama out of office is a ‘sell out.’
Yup. Getting more and more obvious every day. Never saw so many obama supporters in here, before. Well, they will get their wish, and he will get another 4 years. Then they will be happy.
...but now she openly supports a candidate who stands by government mandates and socialized medicine? And you don’t think money or political favor has anything to do with it?
I think she has played you for a fool. They are all phonys and frauds...just to varying degrees. That doesn’t mean you can’t like them....just don’t be naive.
No..it's simply standing with the party which is what candidates do regardless what they know is truth about their once opponet. It's "Their Party"...it certainly isn't ours...
They will stand with their own, they all said as much from the get go. Nobody should be surprised and nobody should be trying to add any reasons why they do so other than it's what they do...every year..all the time.
“If we don’t get rid of Obama this country is OVER.”
I guess I have more faith in our country than you do. Americans are never going to let one man or party completely take them down. Times may be rough, but in no way will the country be “over”.
Your melodrama sounds like Alec Baldwin when he was whining and threatening to leave if Bush were elected.
Face it. Romney is going to lose. No one can win an election when a significant portion of their base says they will “have to hold their nose” to vote for him. Without a motivated fired up base, the only thing that is “over” is this election.
..and what makes you think it's not now? Do you honestly think Romney's going to stop this trajectory? and how. He has no plans because the plans are laid out for him...the script continues...he's just like Obama...does what he is told.......and what they're both being told is not good for this country or it's people. They are both on the same page in that respect.
As for Glen Beck...he's been in Romney's court from the get go....everybody knows that. ..and the informed knew that before the Primary.
So what is the answer to getting Obama out of office?
Cain and Perry already have. Santorum and Newt are getting close.
Once Romney passes the 1,144 delgeat threshold, the others will endorse and campaign for him.
Newt, Santorum, Palin, Bachman, Cain, Perry, etc. will do so because despite the differences, despite his dealing as Governor in Mass...he is running on firm commitments now that if accomplished will turn this nation around. They all know he will be orders of magnitude better than Obama...and particularly if we can deliver a House and Senate.
I expect, once he passes that delegate count and officially becomes the nominee, that most folks will coalese behind him...even if (like with me) he was not our choice. For me it was Sarah, Cain, Santorum and Newt.
I pray we can defeat Obama and use our own influence, multiplied by millions, to help turn our nation away from the catastrophe.
No. Glenn Beck was for Rick Santorum, since Iowa. I think the only attention that Beck has given Romney is the t-shirt which says ‘Romney. At least he isn’t a commie.’ in my book that is damning with faint praise.
Like Obama Romney can't run on his record because he never tells the truth.....his truth changes in whatever political winds that will carry him....and in some respects makes him worse than Obama because his basic agenda is the same...he's just coloring in the picture with his choice of colors...the picture won't change. We know Obama is bad all over....Romney's mask is firmly in place....
I won't be voting for Romney....First election I haven't voted for a President and that I do mourn...but I cannot get behind the agenda's these two are pushing and won't be a part of it...to do otherwise is treason against my country , and a huge dishonor to God.
“....Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering ‘his vote’ that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country...”
LOL! Great cartoon.
Well, based on some FReeper purists, she no longer has a seat on the conservative wagon. I wonder how many of those same purists ridiculed her during her run and called her too conservative, crazy, a nut, etc.
This is not to say I’m supporting Romney. I’m on the fence with him, but that said, I can understand why conservative politicians and conservatives are supporting him as an alternative to Obama.
Or National Elvis Historian.
All tv pundits and such will play their cards very carefully in an election. Their primary concern is their listening audience above and beyond the political tides that be. In Becks case it's been especially so for he's still considered the new kid on the block.
SAntorum's surge came because the media was doing what they were told which was to lift Santorum at that particular. Santorum was the GOPS guy when and if they would need him along the way. Rick's a player and always has been. That hasn't changed as we see him now holding out his delegates until his price is met....
There is no debating with the clueless. Babble with liberals, your speed. Get lost, pretender.
It is all unsubstantiated conspiracies with you Newt people. Glenn just today laid into Milt for being terribly unreliable and unconvincing in his current beliefs. After reading your comments, you wouldn't know anything about that because you obviously don't listen.
I don't think we'll see them campaigning as much for Romney as exposing Obama policies for what they are. They'll be crushing Obam with everything they can muster..... If you listen to them their comments are general in nature regarding Romney...there isn't much enthusiasm for him at all. ...and rightfully so.
It would be great if Romney did as your post indicates....but I cannot see that happening as Romney in the past does what he wants regardless....including bypassing government prodigal and rules as he did and showed he's capable of in Mass. as Governor.
I disagree they think he's far better than Obama....rather he's what they got and they will live with it and do as they can to steer him....if he can be steered by our guys which I have great reservations about...those who might oppose Romney will be few if he wins ..for the impression will be he's one of ours.... He's not.
There is no understanding it, it just shows they weren't in politics for our country but themselves! Therefore, faux conservatives. The deal was made before Newt and Perry or any conservative entered the race or who they thought would enter the race. So, supporting him as an alternative, is FALSE! You really aren't too savvy.
On the other hand, Cain abandoned Gingrich before he withdrew from the race, so I’m not sure he’s the best example.
Santorum didn’t endorse Romney. That was pretty good restraint, given how Newt Gingrich cost Santorum the small possibility that we could actually beat Romney. It’s not like Gingrich dropped out and endorsed Santorum when Santorum was beating Romney. At least Santorum dropped out and gave Gingrich a clear field — maybe just to prove that Gingrich couldn’t beat Romney one-on-one.
My point is that it is rediculous to attack Santorum in a thread about Bachmann endorsing Romney after Gingrich suspends his campaign.
Rotflol.....now that is funny...sad too...but I’m laughing my fanny off just the same...
I remember how, when Bachmann was starting to poll close to Romney, and was about to win the Iowa caucus, a small but vocal group of Freepers here decided to tear her down, part of the “destroy the other conservatives so Sarah Palin can enter the race” strategy.
While I would have loved to have Sarah Palin in the race, I had confidence that she could clear her own field, and it certainly didn’t help beat Romney to burn the village and run off all the conservative candidates. We needed to unite around the first guy or girl who showed they could beat Romney, instead the first two were targeted, and the 3rd only survived because Palin directly announced she wasn’t running, but he fell of his own accord.
That was of course all before the collective re-imagineering of Newt Gingrich as “the conservative we wanted all along”. For which Santorum was regularly attacked, again splitting the conservative vote through negative attacks, making it harder for the supporters of each candidate to join forces.
Don’t get me wrong — I don’t actually think individual actions like that were a deciding factor in anything; I do think that as a whole, conservatives were not focused on beating Romney at any cost, too many wanted what they thought was the perfect candidate.
Preventing Romney from getting enough votes to get the nomination. This isn’t a done deal yet.
A contested convention is our only hope.
Sarah and Todd voted for NEWT!! Remember that - no one decent wants mitt. The not decent could be bought off and the clueless just go along - he didn't win anything he bought it. So don't use Sarah's name to give any credibility to mitt who is responsible for all the attacks against Sarah. His LIES, EVIL and rotten vile tactics against Sarah and all her family! He truly has a demonic spirit within him.
You are on a conservative site - so don't use 'we' when promoting your pro homo, pro baby killer LIAR candidate. Have some respect for decent people. Besides, that is such an over used political manipulative technique - to use it on conservatives is not wise but insulting when speaking of Romney.
I find this nauseating and I think you’re right. During this process I was in Bachmann’s corner, after she quit, I was on the so-called “Cain Train”, when that derailed, I voted for Newt after much soul-searching, but I still rooted for Santorum.
Never once did I consider voting for Mitt Trotsky or his boy-toy Ron Paul. I’m a Conservative and they’re not. It’s that simple.
Take you clueless rant and shove it. Sell your praise for mitts whore to someone else.

Go back to daily kos.
but I cannot get behind the agenda’s these two are pushing and won’t be a part of it...to do otherwise is treason against my country , and a huge dishonor to God.
- - - -
exactly. I cannot wish them Godspeed, either of them (2 John 1:10-11) as they both support unbiblical practices and believe false gospels.
Any Freeper that calls Michelle Bachmann a whore, is a DNC-Huffpo mole.
Please!!!!!!! Bachmann hired Ed Rollins which was her first Hugh mistake and then after he quit, he dumped on Michele on CNN Anderson Cooper like we figured he would do. Then the next mistake was Rollins attacking Sarah publicly for no reason and it took days for Michele to respond which raised a lot of eyebrows if she considered Sarah “her friend”. After that Bachmann went on her bizzare Gardisol-affect infants thing which made people scratch their heads - all of this before Iowa.
Rich, very rich. Coming from you, epic.
So I have a pretty good idea of what the site is all about.
I'll say it again...just for you. Sarah will endorse and support Romney for President should he be the nominee.
But if it doesn't and if Mitt breaks the 1,144 delegate threshold, he will have won the omination. Not because he "bought" it, and not because most people are clueless...I have more faith in the GOP people voting in the primaries than that...it will be because, despite his record in Mass, he got the most votes all over the country and won the required number of delegates.
Sorry its that way...but it is, so deal with it.
IMHO, Romney will be far better for the country, even with his warts, than Obama, and that is precisely why the others will endorse him. Cain and Perry already have. Santorum and Newt will do so when he gets the delegates...and so will Sarah.
Not strange you were watching it with your own eyes and didn’t see it because you had a preconceive notion that blinded you and still is.
A real deal tea party member could have kicked mitt to the curb starting with the first debate EASILY, VERY EASILY unless they were there for his benefit.
She never attacked him, you watched it but only listened to her mouth and not watching what she DIDN’T do only what she did do.
Did you see Mitt’s record on taxes and unemployment in MA during his admin? She had tons of stuff to use - that a TRUE DEAL conservative had at their disposal - the liberals did their homework and later you will see what your ‘core’ candidate let pass. Perry tried addressing those things and she came along barking over Perry’s voice while mitt was denying, denying. Truly pitiful to watch.
She can try to clean herself up with this or that and given a pass with her supporters but now she’s just another pawn who the political world knows as ‘usable’.
With dirty politics there is always lots and lots of money - dirty money and not from your average hard working citizen. It’s needed to carrying out the task.
Dirty politics isn’t usually played by conservatives, that’s why so many were taken off guard. But it was a liberal, with no conservative ethics at all - that set up the deal at the weakness of those that were usable on what ‘they’ wanted so bad, is all that he needed to know to entice them into his web of deception. And in the political ego world, it’s easy to know.
God bless ya....whoever you are....for zotting all that shameful posting
That was awful....just garbage posting
It makes us look like outlier nuts
I really don't care what you do or how you vote. For me, the choice is clear. Good night.
