Skip to comments.Mitt Romney Will Do Just Fine, Thank-You [insulting the intelligence of the base is madness]
Posted on 05/07/2012 3:20:54 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
The upcoming election will be one of the simplest of our lifetimes. It is defined by one axiom: Obama must be defeated.
[HUGE SNIP of must-read article]
So let us put away all thoughts of strife and disagreement. All wishful thinking and illusions. The real world beckons. There is no place for the ideal in this conflict. We will have other and better opportunities. For good or ill, Romney is the man of the hour. The only thing of importance is to defeat Obama and everything he stands for. The polls, the shifting attitudes of the country as a whole, and the stark fear arising among the progressives suggest that Romney can do the job. Lets us gird our loins and go amongst them.

How do writers who continue to write nasty remarks about the other candidates believe this will improve the base's mood and have them work for Romney?
The answer is that in the eyes of this author, the base will end up becomeing “ABO” or “anybody but Obama” folks.
Im making a prediction,tho I hope im wrong.Even if Romney wins,nothing will change,America will still fail because of gutless republicans.If it does fail because of gutless republicans,democrats will rightfully blame republicans.Then we lost twice as much.I see no other result.Please someone prove me wrong.
If it is so important, you do it. I have better things to do than watch another Dole/McCain fiasco. (build an ark, fer instance)
You have it in a nutshell...
Romney may be a leftist Republican, but I think that (unlike Obama), he loves America and wants to do what’s best for our country. Also, he has strong experience running businesses, and I think he’ll cut real unemployment in half within a year of his inauguration (from 20% underemployment to 10%).
So Romney is a clean-living 21st Century Nixon with good hair? A corporate raider versus a community organizer? Happy day!
Statism must me defeated. Debauchery must be defeated. Economic coercion and fraud must be defeated. The culture of death must be defeated. No matter who is the standard carrier for these things, that malefactor must be defeated.
I got an invite to Lord Mitt’s speech at Lansing community college on Tuesday. I hate to say it but I think Michigan’s governor will be his VP pick and he’s nothing but Al Gore with a GOP tag.
History repeats itself.
NO to Willard. Period.
We(tea party) defeated Obama in 2010. What did the Republicans do? They stabbed in the back the very movement that put them in power to stop Obama. I don't see much to celebrate if Romney wins.
“I hate to say it but I think Michigans governor will be his VP pick and hes nothing but Al Gore with a GOP tag.”
Perfectly matched then.
So Dunn admits Romney is not a conservative but he is formidable. A true conservative could not beat Obama? is this what the GOP has come down to? so long as we have a watered down republican that is fine with them.

Which "he"? Michigan's governor, or Mitt Romney? Vague antecedent.
So which guy are you comparing to Al Gore?
Oh, and yeah -- barf!
Yes, I don’t need flowers and sunshine pumped up my fundament, or to be talked off the ledge, to vote to deny the Usurper further time to destroy our civilization’s future.
Judging from what I read here, most Republicans in Free Republic will vote for Obama.
I suppose they like the status quo.
Staying home or voting for anyone but Romney pretty much assures an Obama victory.
OROMNA is OBAMA with an ‘R’ in his name.
“Regarding Romney versus Obama? There isn’t much difference.” - George Soros 2012
Unless Romney finds himself a Palin....fuggeddaboutit. His campaign will make Mondale’s look like a winner!!!!
One, as long as the economy's in the tank, they don't want the Presidency. They want to avoid the blame and scapegoat the Democrats. Which is pretty brash, since they are the guys who went along with Phil "Bankers' Boy" Gramm in repealing Glass-Steagall and unleashing the Wall Street orgy.
Two, they want Obamacare as much as Obama and Nancy Pelosi want it -- but they want to scapegoat, again, and blame the Democrats and stand around saying "well, we tried" and "you know we gave it our all ..." and crap like that, when they were complicit as hell and guilty as hell about the passage of that giant POS. They helped it pass for their Fortune 500 CEO's who've been screaming bloody murder for 15 years for a way to dump their employee healthcare plans. Well, Obama's their Judas goat -- both parties' Judas goat. He and his Communist thugs got the bill through with maladroit legislative leger-de-Mace, and everyone else can pretend innocence, especially on the Republican side.
Three, Obama's vast crimes and derelictions, his imposture as a U.S. citizen (he may not even be one!), and all the rest, will be swept under the rug. The current Republican leadership will no more investigate or drag Obama out into the sunlight than George W. Bush did Bill Clinton, who was a Manchurian candidate, a traitor, a rapist, and many times a felon, even selling presidential pardons and stealing everything that wasn't nailed down as he and his wretched consort cankled out the door.
Mitt Romney won't touch Obama's crimes -- he'll limp-leg us like Dubya did, with some Karl Rove b.s. about how we need to keep focus and "not let the Democrats suck all the air out of the room" and "divert" the President's agenda with "other issues". Not even when the "other issues", are vast crimes with dead bodies attached to them.
Testing, testing, testing (the truce, that is). Romney is running on a conservative platform. Period. Romney also is winning the nomination by avoiding the types of mistakes made by his rivals in the primaries.
Thats the way I see it.
I have to get the garden ready for next year that day.
That’s the thing about Obama. I will never understand how the American people elected as our leader a man who hates us and hates our country.
What other president has hated America? Certainly not Carter, for all his flaws and failures.
Maybe Woodrow Wilson, he seems to be a pretty hateful guy. Did he hate America?
And yes, Romney and ALL the others who ran, do love America which is why any single one of them would be a better president than the radical leftist Barack Obama.
All the brains and half the charm of Joe Biden.
Romney in the White House, as I just posted, will be Zero help -- pun intentional -- and will actually do more damage than Obama, because Romney would be the titular leader of the GOP and would define all issues and platform planks. He could -- and will -- deliberately push the Tea Party into a corner, because RiNO's hate their own base. They hate our guts. Start latching onto that fact and getting your mind around it.
With Willard the nominee, the only way out of our jam is to get a 2/3's majority in the Senate in this rare opportunity to do so -- and use it to drag Obama out of the White House by impeachment and conviction. Even if some RiNO senators refuse to vote for Obama, even if you get another Democratic party-line vote to sustain him, you will damage them and their party with the People, you will defeat the Media filters and be able to lay your case directly before the People, whose attention you will have for a change without 'Rat-B*stard Press intermediation.
In fact, I've made the case in this space for the political utility of impeaching AG Holder now, and forcing the Senate Democrats to vote down the line for him this fall, with us looking down their throats. Talk about defining some issues and hanging them around the 'Rats' necks -- but again, the RiNOs are playing to lose and are more interested in screwing us than working against the Democrats.
Perhaps authors like Dunn would be wise to write stuff like that. Or does Dunn (and others like him) have some reason for keeping Obama’s opponents divided?
And about a third of the starch.
The down ticket races will be my primary reason for going to the polls. Mitt supporters better hope and pray for write in and 3rd party voters to save those down ticket races.
I'm going to vote for him because an orange juice can is better than the evil Bambi has to offer, and because of that I find it insane to work against the GOP nominee who is running against such evil. I will work and hope for more conservatives on the down tickets to press Romney to the right, and would love to be surprised to find out he's better than I think (not holding my breath).
I’m predicting the lowest turnout either party has seen in decades.
That would be one thing but this author goes out of his way to insult the rest of the GOP primary field. Why? His stuff reads like the base embarrasses him and their only use now is to be insulted inorder to impress the middle that the GOP isn't like that.
See the speculation that Netan-Yoohoo will do something in October about Iran?
Because they have no principles left, all Romney Republicans have are blunt instruments. The clubbing of conservatives into line is all they know how to do.
Shhhhh, stop making sense, it’s not allowed here.
Well, then the tea party MUST turn out en mass for every conservative and “paint” the Romney Republicans into a “cooperative” corner.
**** willard... he will NEVER get my vote.
Romney isn’t Conservative by any means. Romney is a liar, but that appears to be a qulification for President , not a Hindrance.
Romney is the biggest POS the Republicans could have put up, and his only chance is that Obama is so bad that people would rather have half a Shyt sandwich than a whole one.
It is said here that Romney would hurt more than Obama because the GOP would get the blame for his failure, well with Obama blaming everything on the GOP anyway, what difference would a little more blame do?
We can speculate on how bad Romney would be.
WE KNOW how bad Obama is.
I choose to speculate.
I am not voting for him.
Romney will do just fine???? I will grudgingly acknowledge that he’ll probably hold the current status quo, and that a second term Obama will descend much further into a Marxist Hell. But I don’t want the status quo. We need to work on the debt, cut spending, reverse regulations, defend the COTUS. I’m stuck with being ABO, but really hating Mittens, and wondering if a protest vote will have any impact after the MSM spins it.
Dear Lord, I’m begging for a brokered convention. Please hear our prayers.
As much as I share the antipathy for republicans and their complicity, I think your blanket condemnation goes too far.
I would focus on the GOPe as complicit in passage of Obamacare.
The real culprit was Arlen Specter who changed from R to D and voted for Obamacare. Without his vote the vote for cloture would have failed and Obamacare would have failed along with it.
"Specter was elected to the Senate five times as a Republican. Having never been elected as a Democrat, he switched parties and became a Democrat on April 30, 2009 and switched his positions on a number of health care issues, ultimately voting for ObamaCare."
But Specter was ousted and hence paid the price of his betrayal.
Other than Specter who was a democrat at the time he voted, every republican voted against Obamacare
