She was my Congresscritter... But with the re-Districting... I don't know that she still is.
You mean like what happened after the RINO McCain lost his White House bid? The Tea Party took over, and did great in 2010. Then, in the 2012 primary we nominated a conserv... Wait, never mind.
The reason she is WRONG is this simple:
Obama’s Second Term = A United America and GOP opposing every breath he takes.
Romney’s Term = A divided America and GOP with the establishment shoving the same socialism down our throats and saying how “decisive” the tea Party and Conservatives are, all the while telling us “it would be so much worse under Obama”.
Don’t buy that AGAIN people. It will NOT be worse, united against evil than it will be divided within.
Look at the replies to this post and others right now. WE ARE INEFFECTIVE AND IRRELEVANT BECAUSE WE ARE ALREADY DIVIDED.
Don’t stay home like 2006 - Get out and work your fingers to the bone... DOWN BALLOT. Just skip the top. Leave it BLANK or vote for Mickey Mouse.
If Romney wins while we are divided, they will have proven they do not need us.
242 Republicans in the House
As of one week ago only 104 endorsed; not even half:
This is McCain Part II.
Have fun watching your guy go down in flames. Hell be lucky to get 40% of the vote.
Thats the reality for you. Deal with it.
Tea Party is where Im at. 2016 is the LATEST in which I see a conservative President take the helm.
Wow where to start with your two inaccurate posts.
You say not many House Republicans have endorsed Romney and when challenged come bace with not even half.
Well by your numbers, which I think are now larger, about 43% of the Republicans in the house have endorsed Romney. To most people 43% at this point would be a significant number. But not to someone who doesn't like to admit they were inaccurate. However you were inaccurate.
Now to your statement that Romney will be lucky to get 40% of the vote. That is absurd and baring some major 3rd party entry I would be more than willing to make you a substantial bet that he goes over 4)5.
If you want your points to be taken seriously quit distorting the truth to fit you point. Bachmann will be as she has already made herself to be a has-been.
It’s not any worse. In my view, it’s equal. The two don’t stand for anything measurably different. They’re both anti-life, they’re both liberal in their economic outlook. They both favor statist big government and they both favor the wrong view on healthcare.
However, as a social conservative, and since I believe that social conservatism is the basis for conservatism in general since it teaches us the difference between right and wrong, I can’t support Romney.
Hope the plums are delicious!
Exactly correct. It’d be one thing if there was ANY leadership in Congress from the GOP-e; I might consider holding my nose. But to lemming-ly follow turd #2, just because he’s ‘our’ turd?? That’s as brain dead as the Dems.
Some around here think that Romney, w/ the feckless Congress, will actually turn back the clock: un-pass laws, strip the EPA/NSA/TSA/etc.? PLEASE
At least voting ‘present’ or 3rd party I know I didn’t lend a hand in bringing the Republic to its knees.
The Tea Party as a grass roots movement with a network of loose affiliations is doing great at the local and state levels such as getting rid of Hatch, Lugar and a number of others in the primary process.
Nationally the Tea Party needs to control the GOP establishment in DC in order to elevate conservative candidates. To gain control the TP needs to flush out the liberals that infest the GOP establishment.
Liberals such as Romney had the money to win nationally in the GOP presidential primary but they won’t win against the democrats in the election because Romney is not popular and he is distrusted. He will be lucky to get 40% of the national vote. His negative ads against Obama will not work because basically the democrats don’t care what he says. He has enough negatives from the point of view of independents and conservatives that he will go down in the Fall.
And for Romney to lose is just fine with the GOP establishment because this entire battle has not been about GOP vs. democrat. This has been about GOP-E and TP. The GOP-E wants to preserve their position in the ruling class versus the country class. They can’t keep their position if a real TP conservative is nominated nationally. Hence, Romney is their guy.
Bachmann is disappointing. She sold out. Fine, there are others. She will come around when she sees the TP winning nationally in 2016 but by that time it will be too late for her. She has maxed out her credibility card.
Have fun watching Romney lose the election.
If it does happen we probably need to look no further that the fellow travelers, closet liberals and liberal trolls here to blame.
Which of those categories do you fall in?
It’s sickening, that’s for sure.
The bipartisan leftist cabal thanks you for playing their game and enforcing their charade. Sorry, Hoss. No sale.
You need to increase your medication and vote for a write in candidate. Yep that will get rid of 0bama all right. Why didn't I see that before?
Are you still yapping away ? You Willardfanbois need to get a life.
You need to quit humping peoples’ legs here on FR and go back to DU. That’s where the people who want 0 reelected hang out. Your constant attempts to get 0 re-elected are embarassing - I point that out because you apparently lack the wit to see it yourself.
Speaking of humping legs... Do you always jump on cue for the big gubmint Socialist establishment naturally, or do you get paid for your “work” ? I figure if you’re going to debase yourself for such an execrable cause, you might as well get a few bucks. As for me, my soul ain’t for sale. Ain’t enough money in the world to pimp for Zero in Whiteface.
Since you obviously live in a delusional world (you handle gives a pretty good hint) It's not worth my wasting my time on you. Don't you have some 0bama signs to post - might get you out of your mother's basement.
Like I said the first time, you Willardbots REALLY need some new material.
There is no doubt that Milt is a bad dream, a very bad dream. But little barry bastard commie is the nihghtmare so bad you’re afraid to go back to sleep! (stole that from a brilliant freeper ...)
