Video of Virgil Goode Appearance on Washington Journal
"Where was I on the bailouts? I voted against them. McCain...voted for; Obama...voted for. Where was I? One of 65 who opposed..."

You and your buddies need to STFU.
So, me and others who have expressed our desire not to help Obama get reelectedd are "Giving aid and comfort to the enemy," are we?
And who(m) exactly is the enemy? The GOP, the RNC or Romney?
As opposed to the DNC or Dear Leader?
And you are insisting that we just "STFU?"
What happened to all that "Civility" thingy?
What happened to the "truce" JR announced?
Does that just apply to those on your side of the aisle or are "we" allowed to express our opinions and advance our agruments as well?
Sorry, it AIN'T gonna happen, unless you or others want to declare all out war and try and get those of us who refuse to accept the fact that a Romney Presidency would in any way be as DANGEROUS as another 4 years under O'Bummer, banned simply for expressing our opinions?
That is what Libs/Leftist do when they can not prevail in the arena of ideas and move to stifle opposing viewpoints.
Why not take a page out of the Conservative playbook (as opposed to Saul Alinksy) and simply try to "Convince" us with cogent and rational arguments?
You never know until you try!!!
The issue is potential and building a conservative party. So far as potential, if GWBush can win with 29 red states, then mathematically it takes being on only 29 state ballots to win. That only stands to reason, but it is a math answer. Reality is that it is a way to build for the future with name recognition for the growing conservative party.
The alternative is voting like a liberal....no, it’s worse than that. It’s like a radical liberal, either an international socialist or a social corporatist (nee Mussolini). Neither is an acceptable choice for a conservative.
In fact, conservatives special pleading each and every idiotic position of Romney, like gay adoption, does not drive him to the right. It allows him to move to the left.
The Romney-bots around here should be thanking their lucky stars for someone like the Constitution Party shouting out about conservatism, because the Romney-bots, even former conservative Romney-bots, think they’re doing him a favor by defending him on each and every stupid statement he makes or has made in the past.
They should be nailing his butt to the wall to keep him to the right, but, no-o-o-o....these geniuses are out there making excuses for him.
Does that hold his feet to the fire as they claim they intend to do? Hell no. It enables him to move left.
Just amazes me, because it makes you all act and look like CINOs. If you don’t start nailing him, then you’re going to end up with Kerry from Massachusetts as both nominee and president, if he happens to win.
That was actually on NBC, and cancelled in 1987...
That is right on the money, m6. If I weren't a Goode man, sold out to conservatism and the rejection of socialism/liberalism, then I'd be shouting out the same message.
As it is, we're trying to organize conservatives as opposition to the 2 liberal parties.
If your efforts fail, then come join us. We at least are running a conservative and not a lifelong liberal.
romneycare, gay adoption, "gay couples", higher taxes/fees, pro-abortion,
game, set, match
No, CVV. When you defend Romney you allow him to move to the left. I thought you “conservatives” were holding his feet to the fire.
Romney came out in favor of Gay Adoption and Gay Couples adopting indigent kids.
What do you think of that?
Which one is the conservative: Obama, Romney, or Goode?
Which one has a snowball’s chance in hell of being elected? You are making good arguments for a primary, but that ship has sailed. Time for everyone who does not want Obama elected to get behind the GOP nominee. Don’t like him much? Then work like hell for the next four years getting TEA Party types elected in national, state, and local races. Help build a farm team that can remake the Republican party. In the meantime quit helping Obama get re-elected, and start helping to defeat him.
And every time Romney hears you say “I’ve got no choice.” he moves to the left.
I thought you all were holding his feet to the fire???
Had a chaplain assistant once who was one of his students in real life during the time that movie portrayed. She was a good kid.
I take it you don’t like southern accents...his answers were direct, clear, and thoughtful.
His ideas were right on the money.
Apparently we have a difference of opinion. If a couple of million people came over to my point of view, we would send Obama to the trash heap of history. If those same people went over to your point of view Obama would win, and your guy would still be a pimple on the ass of the body politic.
You avoided the issue, Sergeant Major. When you say, “We have no choice.” you are NOT holding his feet to the conservative fire.
Or are all the “got no choicers” gonna just roll over?
Of those three? Goode. Hands down...
“Would I rather have Obama, Romney, or Goode as my president?”
Goode is a former democRAT congressman.
If you like democRATS, Obama is your man.
Goode will only be in the ballot in a couple of states.
I never said “We have no choice.” We have a very clear choice: elect Obama or elect Romney. Voting for Goode is just like voting for Obama. Think you are sending a message by voting for a fringe candidate? Go fart in a whirlwind; that sends just as much of a message. Don’t think Romney is conservative enough? Well neither do I, but he is the MOST conservative candidate running with even a remote chance of winning. I guess you missed the part where I said work to elect TEA Party candidates at every level in order to re-make the GOP from the inside. That will ensure a better slate of candidates for future primaries. In the meantime elect Romney as the place holder and elect enough Conservative Congress critters to keep him in line. Vote Romney or elect Obama-that is the choice!
Hint - something doesn't cease to be "breaking news" just because you don't like the candidate that it's about.
Both of them
And that's just off the top of my head.
Further, I see no reason - absolutely none - to believe that Romney will have any more adherence to the Constitution that Obama does, or that Romney will oppose/rollback any of the things going on now that are blatant attacks upon our Constitution and freedom, things like the TSA overreaches, the VIPR searches, Agenda 21, etc. etc. Simply put, a Romney regime will just be "steady as she goes" on destroying the Constitution, pursing the same course already under way.
Likewise, what real evidence do we have that Romney will, for instance, remove the czars and close down that apparatus? More than likely, Romney will continue them and "conservatives" will suddenly stop squawking about these unelected and unnominated positions, since it's "our" guy who's at the helm. That's what happens every time. "Conservatives" gripe about overreaches by the Dems, but then go strangely silent when it's a Republican continuing the same policies.
Further, we have no real evidence that Romney will pursue a better foreign policy. I would expect that superficialities like the apology tours might end, but as for actual nuts and bolts policy decisions, I doubt he'd change much from Obama. After all, worldview will shape foreign policy, among other things, and since the two seem to share similar worldviews, I don't see a Romney foreign policy team being much different, other than to walkback the Anglophobia of this administration.
Let me try to write this correctly one more time.
Those who support Romney do so because they have no other choice. That is what they say. That’s essentially what you said, “obama or romney”. IOW, you believe that if you vote for anyone other than romney then you are helping obama.
However, these “got no choicers” also say that they are the conservative base, that they’ll raise holy hell when romney gets out of line, etc, etc.
But, they aren’t holding his feet to the fire. When he came out supporting gay adoption, their first words were about (1) if you injure Romney then you’re electing obama. or (2) it’s about the economy stupid, quit diverting the discussion.
As you can see, CSM, either answer gives Romney a pass and allows him to move one more step to the left. And this from people who swore they’d hold his feet to the fire.
Bah humbug. The only thing they’ve held to the fire so far is a marshmallow.
They are quickly becoming leftist enablers. In fact, the simple acknowledgement that you have no choice enables Romney to move to the left.
Believe me, I have no intentions of voting for Virgil Goode, or Barack Obama.
“You and a few of your fellow Hate Mittens/Mormons Freepers who are hell bent on trying to insure that Dear Leader gets another bite of the apple and can continue his agenda as he works diligently to destroy our Republic?”
Are you really claiming that the reason people on FR oppose Mitt is because he’s Mormon?
