Conservatives and Romney work at working together
Google News/AP ^ | June 9, 2012 | Laurie Kellman, AP

Posted on 06/09/2012 11:40:10 AM PDT by Innovative

Conservatives at the core of the Republican Party are coalescing behind likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney faster than expected...

"I'm going (to support him) because it's my responsibility and, frankly, almost anything is going to be better than Obama," said Steve Troxel, chairman of the Lynchburg Republican Party in swing-state Virginia.

"The emerging consensus among conservatives is that the Republican House will lead the conservative charge and Romney will be in the White House to sign bills, rather than advance his own agenda," said Republican consultant Matt Mackowiak, who supported Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the primary. "Conservatives don't universally claim Romney as one of their own, but they appear to have united behind him, perhaps reluctantly, but without question."

You can pick Obama, it’s a free country, so far, just don’t pretend.

The only one here who's pretending is you. Probably on a lot of levels.

Do you have a problem with reality?

The conservatives I mentioned and many others have endorsed and are campaigning for Romney.

svcw: “Not supporting Romney is not the same as supporting BHO.”
Inno: Yes it is. The vote you are withholding from Romney may be the vote he would have needed to beat Obama.

Therefore Romney is ENTITLED to your vote if you don't like Obama. So much so that if you deny that entitlement, you are SUPPORTING Barack Obama!

Don't you see, it's all so so simple!

Wrong, Innovative. It's nuts. It's a nutty, devious rationale.

Romney wants to bend people to government as much as Obama does. Voting for either one is LOCO.

"*sigh* Alas, we have no cheesy grits."

See, that right there was where I decided to get behind Mitt Romney! He came down to the South and said he liked cheese grits! I put my teeth in, grabbed the coon dogs, and went out to where hubby was cleaning the cee-ment pond and said, "Honey, I think we got us a winner this time!"

Really! Show some links for Palin. She hasn't endorsed Romney -- though I think she probably will at some point, and I'll be disgusted. But as far as I know, Palin has rather scrupulously avoided supporting or endorsing Romney BY NAME. You are loose with the truth.

Coulter is a northeast liberal Republican. Being anti-abortion (as I am) doesn't make her a conservative, it makes her an anti-abortion Republican. Calling out the feminist agenda (as I do, too, in my own way) doesn't make her a conservative, it makes her someone who isn't falling for the meme. Here's the deal: she's supported Romney for qutie awhile, and Romney is a demonstrated, on-the-record, documented liberal-style statist. Therefore she fails muster as a conservative. It's pretty simple -- bigger government = ANTI conservatism.

I think for myself, FRiend. What other people who call themselves conservatives think is outside my range of caring. I read, analyze, and make up my own mind.

It's interesting that you interpret it as having a "problem with reality" when my own mind makes up differently than yours. I think you're perfectly in touch with reality -- I just think you're wrong. :^)

I was just thinking that this morning, reading an email from a Christian conservative friend who happily has convinced himself that Romney will be just fine because he's made it clear in debates that he won't support activist judges or pro-abortion legislation.

Don't worry, Romney promised!

You guys are so correct maybe it is time to suspend all my conservatism and vote for Romney.

He did come to California and went surfing at his private beach in from of his soon to be completed 12,000 sq ft home, so I would realize he is just one of us little people.

No, I do not care how much money he has earned I care that he is a liberal to his core.

That's the context of a vacuum. You think the limited government conservatives who will probably be sweeping Congress will just lie down and roll over? You think moderate Republicans in Congress would raise their hands in surrender, too? You think Obama and his crew are omnipotent?

If you're going to play the "so you'd rather have" game, so YOU would rather have the most powerful Republican in America be a person with a distinguished record of actively ADVANCING five major liberal agendas, including activist judicial picks, the environmentalist agenda, abortion, homosexual "rights," and state-run health care?

You think it isn't loopy to vote FOR that and give him a Congress where his own guys would be split -- moderates vs conservatives -- and the moderates would have support from the OTHER side of the aisle, and they'd be able to say their Republican president had a "mandate" and that the conservatives were really just the minority of the people's will? Essentially making any pretence of the Republican party as being a valid opposer of bigger government, ridiculous?

Well done, Rover. Roll over.

I'll never vote for a double-talking, pro-homo, gun-grabbing, mandate-loving, tax-hiking, abortion-embracing hack like Romney. Period.

I think all I said on the matter of who wins that it's harder to beat Obama than the Mittbots have misled you to believe. That's because it requires, at a minimum, that Obama receive 15% fewer votes than he did in 2008 while the Republican candidate has to get MORE than the highest vote total ever received by any Republican!

You cannot win under those conditions unless you have a candidate who inspires ALL factions in the Republican party to joyfully participate in the campaign, and then it's touch and go at best.

You cannot win with a Barry Goldwater type candidate who focuses on the business community and tells the social Conservatives to take a hike.

I think we've been over this territory before. So far not a single Mittbot has come up with a single reason for any social Conservative to vote for Romney. On that score he is no different than Obama!

We are witnessing the republican party devolve into the democrat party.

The Republican party does appear to be leaving us, doesn't it? Well, they do so at their own risk. Moving left is the very worst thing they could possibly do right now, when the people are moving right.

If they push it, they're going to force the Tea Party to replace them.

You're not alone. When politics comes up and I bring up Romney's record, or the leftward direction of the Republican party, the discussion stops. People don't want to hear it.

Romney is not a liberal. I wish people would not insist that he is.

Don't say I never tried to help you...


Mitt Romney’s Dismal Governing Record

"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.

* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.

* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.

* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.

"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.

In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

[Cato Institute annual Fiscal Policy Report Card - America's Governors, 2004.]


Romney's "accomplishments".

1. Implemented/created Gay Marriage in MA

2. Supported and forced Gay Adoption in MA

3. Supported Abortion wholeheartedly

4. Raised taxes/fees over 300% while being Governor of MA

5. Implemented a state-level Cap and Trade system.

6. Supported Man-Made Global Warming

7. Supported the Brady Bill

8. Implemented a state level “Assault” Weapons Ban after the Federal AWB was allowed to expire.

9. Supported TARP

10. Supported Amnesty for Illegal Aliens (Citizenship for those already here)

11. Supported McCain-Kennedy (Amnesty)

12. Implemented a socialized medicine in MA called RomneyCare complete with an Individual Mandate and $50 abortions.

13. Nominated 27 Democrats (out of 36 nominations) for judgeships in MA, many of them extreme left-wingers.

Just to be sure what i told you, it isn't a case of wanting Obama to win ~ it's a recognition that the NUMBERS are not on Mitt's side.

To believe Mitt can win you have to believe these things:

(1) That you can get 62,000,000+ Votes (the most any Republican has ever gotten) without overt support of the Social Conservatives.

(2) That Obama can actually lose 15% of the vote he got in 2008 ~ and he got 69,000,000 votes!

That's the task. It is best done by a candidate who can ATTRACT some Democrats (e.g. unemployed youth) and also ATTRACT all the Republicans.

You cannot win as a Republican by rejecting the support of major factions affiliated with the Republican party. That does not work.

You people have to be smoking some strong dope to continue to believe that Romney can get 15% of Democrats to not vote exactly the same way they did in 2008 WHILE trying to campaign without a Conservative candidate.

The Democrats, given the choice of voting for a real Democrat or Democrat pretending to be a Republican will vote for the real thing every single time.

This is competition among broad coalitions ~ not mano y mano stuff. The Democrat factions that are part of the Democrat coalition know who they are and why they vote the way they do. If they are given no rational reason for changing they won't.

Obama had 69 million votes last time to McCain's 59 million votes. Unless the Mittbots can come up with some magic ju-ju somewhere, that's where we're are at ~ in a seriously losing situation!

Crazy, isn't it? This should have been a landslide election year -- greater even than Reagan's victory. All it would have taken was a Tea Party worthy candidate with an "R" behind his or her name on the ballot. And what do we end up with? A 2008 do-over with a third place loser that wasn't even conservative enough to measure up to John McCain. The republican party should have either died or changed course in 2008. Apparently neither has happened. Maybe this will be the year.

Romney is not liberal.

Sure ... and Bill Clinton didn't have sexual relations ... and the Tea Party is astroturf ... and Ayers is just some fellow from Obama's neighborhood ... etc etc etc. It all depends on what your definition of "is" is. Romney is more liberal than most of the democrats I know. If he best represents you and your politics, you *should* vote for him. He's earned your vote. As for me, not remotely close on his best day.

I said before that the trajectory of recent American history required the election of a strong conservative at this juncture of space and time. The stars were perfectly aligned for it, yet the GOP in it's infinite stupidity did everything in its power to prevent that from happening.

A small, distant elite have decided amongst themselves that the vast majority of the American people don't really know what's best for them, and that they can't be trusted to choose that person who best represents their beliefs and values.

No - much better to play it safe, and push forth a candidate who is acceptable to their elite brethren on the other side of the feeding trough. After all, they all know which way the country is really headed, because Soros told them so.

The serfs just need to shut up with all that patriotic, constitutionalist, small government, conservative nonsense, and do as they're told. Just pay the damn bills and let the professionals handle the complicated stuff.
