He’s not giving up. He wants the four more to complete the destruction and transformation.

If he loses, you can bet he will do the very things you talk about between November and January.

Right now he’s trying to get his base riled up. I am sure he has plans X, Y and Z to try and ensure his victory if things look bad as we get closer...ie. watch for war with Iran.

We simply have to beat him anyway.

Better yet, I will do whatever I have to to STOP you from pulling robomney across the finish line.

So you're either openly supporting Obama or you're delusional. In either case, we've got nothing more to say to each other.

It is time to elect Mitt and to secure Congress with good men and women to hold his feet to the fire.

Well put. I"m not a Mitt fan, but I think if we force a Republican House and Senate on him, he'll stay somewhat conservative.

The only one here that's delusional here is you thinking that electing a socialist (romney) as a republican will do anything other than hasten the demise of freedom.

The only one here openly supporting a socialist is YOU.

its not any better, and arguably worse.

Think about this... The GOP is about to nominate a SOCIALIST as its candidate for president.

All this guy is gonna do is make sure that Obamacare gets fully instated as Robamacare. The gop congress that MAY have pulled the purse strings against the DEM socialist will go along WILLINGLY with the Republican SOCIALIST. WHY? Because hes a Republican thats why..

Think thats f”ing crazy? well.. look at yourselves... Your voting for a SOCIALIST because he is a republican....

YES! I would have voted for an inmate over OBAMA! But only if that inmate wasnt a SOCIALIST.

Romney isnt an inmate... Hes a socialist.

I mean, really let that sink in...

The GOP is headed towards nominating a SOCIALIST as its candidate for president.....

What kind of drugs need to be taken for THAT to be OK?!

It cant be allowed to happen or we are Friggen TOAST! and if they do nominate his ass we have to make sure that he never steps foot in the WH as president...

We all HATE obama because hes a socialist... But at least those blinded by party lables in the GOP will fight him. But god F’ing help us when we have a Socialist president with an R behind his name... The GOP will line up behind him... Guaranteed...

Even worse... Once they got one through they will get more... We will be SCREWED.

I cant, in good conscience let that happen.

Obama had to come out in support of gay marriage cuz he was going to Hollywood for some cash and the handle was going to be low as well as the take.

The announcement that he was for gay marriage was for fundraising purposes. He thinks he has more of a chance being for gay marriage with the CA$H! that comes from that...than if he didn’t get the cash.

In 2008 Ras had Obama up 52%-46% in their final poll. I don’t think that represents an example of a too close to call instance. I do recall that during the campaign they had some polls that showed McCain and Obama essentially tied.

If I vote for Romney (whose views are more like Obama than for mine) how am I doing anything but giving support to those views? And if I live in a state which Romney has no possible way of winning, why vote for him?

However, if I live in a battleground state, I may indeed have to hold my nose and pull the lever to rid us of Obama. The closeness of the polls will determine whether I have to join and grab the rope to pull him across the line.

I am not an indifferent voter, I vote in local and national elections. In 2008 in support of Palin I went around work and door to door in my neighborhood registering voters. This time I will support state candidates with money and signs. I will just avoid the topic of Romney.

You're right. Ras is consistently one of the better performing polls. Of course, there are still a significant number of non-leftist people out there (including of this forum) who say they will never vote for Romney no matter what.

If I didn't live in a swing state, I might even partake of that luxury, but since I do, there is just one question which seals it for me:

Which Supreme Court nominee was easier to stop? Harriett Meyers? Or Elena Kagan?

The former was just an unqualified crony, the latter a hardcore Marxist.

V- think about this. It's widely believed that the next POTUS will select 2-3 SCOTUS judges

If Obama selects a Van Jones or Deval Patrick, ultra Marxists, even if we have majorities in the Senate, will they have the balls to stop it? When the libs and media will call us racist if we block it? Can we really muster the votes to stop it under that pressure?

Then, under the guide of diversity, he selects an Arab American... Again with the threat of being called racist, she gets seated....

We then have a 6-3 lib majority that even Reagan reincarnated can't help us with... And they will torment us for 20-30 years.

The stakes are too high to sit out and prove a point... Another 4 years of Obama, unleashed, will rip apart ouf country... Permanently

You're welcome. We have to do whgatever we can to make the best out of this situation. The worst case is four more of the Kenyan Marxist in which he will go all out to finish what he has started, the complete dismantling and destruction of the Rpeublic.

With Romney and the stances he has taken on the issues and a conservative House and Senate to hold his feet to that fire, we can actually see this thing turned around in large in the next 4-8 years.

The positions Romney is taking on the issues are anything but socialist.

Mitt Romney on the issues in 2012

He is a POL and will easily be held to those issues because he wants his presidency to be validated, he wants to turn things around and be viewed as the guy who did so, and so he will want all eight years.

The make up of the House and Senate is changing. 2010 made large gains in having real conservatives there. 2012 will add even more. They will hold him to the fire, despite what you think.

At any rate, with those stances and a majority house and senate we have an excellent chance to turn things around with a President who is openly siding with us on most issues...despite his past.

We have absolutely none of that with Obama...in fact, he will do exactly the opposite by whatever means he can.

Most people, particularly the conservaitve leaders who are now sitting and talking with Romney see this, believe it, and are intending to hold him to it. it's only a very small percentage who are so steeped in their anger, dislike, and mistrust of Romney who will not.

And, as unfortunate as it is that he is the banner carrier, he is...and I am thankful that most people will get behind him to get rid of Obama and put together that scenario I just spoke of.

CriticalConservative Leaders Begin to Endorse and Support Romney

On top of all of that, some free advise...(and its free so it may be worth nothing to you, that's your call)...all your swearing and offensive language and name calling of those you do not agree with you here will neither change any of this a whit, and certainly will not bring others around to your way of thinking. Most of us on the boards are aware of what is happening and who these players are and what their backgrounds are and are not making our decisions lightly, any more than you are. So try and keep that in mind when you treat those decisions with such derision.

Yes, as some wise person said, “We MAY survive Obama but what we CANNOT survive is having voters stupid enough to elect Obama.” No fiction writer could have ever imagined a story as bizarre as what is happening in America now. Our government is controlled by people who would have been locked in insane asylums in the days of my youth. As a matter of fact I used to service office equipment in some of this state’s mental health facilities and I observed mental patients who would have been far more desirable in any office up to and including the presidency than the current crop of Democrats and even many in the GOP.

Good point. Did Republicans even put up a token opposition to Obama's SCOTUS appointments? With Harriet Miers, Republicans said not only "no" but "Hell NO!" and we got Samuel Alito instead.
