Romney haters, did you cry to your parents when u lost growing up

Posted on 07/14/2012 9:24:58 PM PDT by shoedog

I have to wonder if all the Romney haters on this site were the same people who ran home to mom when they lost at games as kids. I did not vote for Romney in the primaries. If you asked anyone that knows me, they would say I am right of Reagan. What I don't understand is all of you that love this country,which I truly believe you do, that are willing to not vote for Romney and potentially allow this country to fail by re-electing Obama!, how does that make sense?

Tell me....how does this win votes for Romney from those who actually stand for conservative ideas, people who do not vote for a party but their principles?

You whiny fool... Romeny won, who cares about the 2nd amendment, lower taxes, judges, abortion, stopping obamacare etc. ROMNEY WON get with your masters this instant you stupid child and stop your crying.....the absolute stupidity.

Nope...did nothing for me....still not voting for a democrat with an R in front of his name...even if he won the primary by once again having the conservative vote split and all the games done by the party.

The problem the party has is we are not like the dem faithful and vote for the party no matter what... we walk when the party has gone to far and if the party is to stupid to look at who their voters are and cater to them then that is their stupidity.

Your Romney will probably win with no base enthusiasm and a bunch of dems helping you but there will not be a second term because that base can not stand him and the dems will be given someone in their party to vote for not against in 4 years. What a waste of a year that could have turned this country around.

Agreed, also agreed that not supporting Romney gives us four more years of The One (WMR was my candidate all along...not perfect but better than BHO). Not voting for Romney or voting 3rd party etc...can really hurt us. I know some aren't satisfied but do we really want more Barack?

Actual site: Republicans for Obama

Actual quote:
"Republicans for Obama is a grassroots organization of proud party members who all share one important trait— we are Americans first and Republicans second. Founded in late 2006 as part of the nationwide effort to encourage then-Senator Obama to run for the Presidency, our volunteer-run, grassroots group now includes thousands of members from across the nation. Together, we represent a cross-section of the millions of Republican and conservative independents who support President Obama's reelection in 2012."

(I can picture possibly picture Dems for Romney*, but Republicans for Obama?!?>!?_)

*--one thing that helped to elect Reagan were the so-called "Reagan Democrats")

———they do not fear Obama like the rest of us do.-——

No, that is not the reason. If you read the posts, fear of Obama is acknowledged. The reason for not becoming part of the Republican coalition is the notion of principle, of maintaining conservative purity.

The concept of sticking to one’s conservative principles in a presidential race where conservatism is no longer an issue is given a higher value than defeating the liberal scourge. As has already been made plain, that is acknowledged in writing, upthread, declaring one’s self irrelevant in the Presidential election is preferable to sacrificing conservative principle.

Conservatives were defeated in their attempts to determine a nominee for President. Some have determined that the proper course is to opt out rather than to vote for a person who lacks the required purity.

I don't like Mitt or his politics, but the fact of the matter is, Mitt is not as bad as the Marxist/Muslim usurper sob. Nobody could be that bad.

This is the most important presidential election of our lifetime, and we must get Obama out of office before he finishes destroying America. THAT must be our number one goal.

Any vote cast for a third party candidate, any write-in, anyone staying home and refusing to vote is casting a vote for Obama.

Unfortunately, that's just the way it is this time around.

I will vote in November- not for Romney, but against Obama.

How right you are.

Mr. Romney nominated 36 judges while governor, just nine of whom were Republicans. What he says of this record today is that the Massachusetts Governor's Council had to confirm the nominees, and the members of the council were all Democrats. So his answer was to nominate persons palatable to Democrats.

Mr. RomneyCARE is the DNC's dream.

“The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.

The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.”

- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006


"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
“Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,”

[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006


"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced
,
instead tapping registered Democrats or independents -- including two gay lawyers who
have supported expanded same-sex rights, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."
- Boston Globe 7/25/2005


Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys.
He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."
- U.S. Senate testimony by Gov. Mitt Romney, 6/22/2004 P>


"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!

Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

On the Republican side of the ticket there is no longer an option to to the RINO Mittens.

However, since this is a conservative site, why are you here?

Your better option may be to go chase those undecided independents. Now both of you have what the Left wing media says you desire, a left wing option in both parties.

As a fellow Buckeye, I completely agree with your post and applaud your courage.

Unfortunately, the 2012 POTUS election is about strategery. It is to choose incremental gain rather than an 'all or nothing' loss. I hate that Romney won the primary and fought against it. But compared to the communist usurper and occupier_in chief, even Romney is preferable. Big time.

Supreme Court Justices and the repeal of 0bamacare (without the fear of a veto pen) are just two of the HUGH differences.

A Mass. conservative (see also Bill Weld, Scott Brown)—about as far right as we’ll get. Unenrolled but will not vote for The One or for the likes of Deval Patrick or John Tierney. In MA anyone who isn’t Commie is considered a far right Rethuglican Nazi (...by the left). Compared to the pols we usually get,
Romney, Brown et al are the only alternative. Remember, I’m
from Massachusetts. I’m grasping at straws. Also I felt he has the best chance of beating Obama. I didn’t want to watch coverage of Election Night and seeing Santorum or Gingrich
lose in a landslide.

Mitt at least has a chance and he’s no Obama. A businessman, not a communist—er, community—activist.

You people are really good at telling us what our vote 'means'. You say my third party vote isn't what it is -- you tell me it's a vote for 0bama rather than a vote for conservatism -- but you also say your vote is what it isn't. You say it's a vote against Obama, but that's not what your ballot says.

Be honest. It's a vote for Mitt Romney. Anything else is salving your conscience. Because you know you hate what you're doing.

If Obama wins this election, 2016 will not matter. But hey, we showed them damn RINOS!

To equate Romney and Obama is supreme foolishness. The only thing you anti-Romney folks are showing is that you have more tolerance for Obama and what he's done to the country the past three years. It boggles the mind that you would consider not voting for Romney, thereby helping Obama win a second term. And yes, you will indeed be helping obama win a second term.

Romney won the GOP primary by capturing a majority of state electoral votes. The GOP-e did NOT force people to vote for the guy. You criticize those of us who've decided to be proactive and vote for the GOP nominee because he isn't the guy (or gal) you wanted. At least we're trying to remove the Kenyan! What are you anti-Romney folks doing? Nothing except using empty words like "Rebellion On!" Rebellion denotes an action.

Go ahead and have your pity party, stay home, and help Obama win a second term. This is utter foolishness and selfishness.

At least those of us who will be voting for Romney tried to remove the Marxist currently holding office. This is an imperfect world, where some decisions are just plain hard.

I would rather support someone with better interests, one who is most decidedly outspoken against the socialist invasion, one most likely to be the de-facto leader of a grass roots revolution to restore the Constitution.

I have lost faith in the election process, its lost its integrity, its been manipulated to place an ineligible person as POTUS, and it will do so again.

If Obama is re-elected I promise anyone there will be a rebellion and its leadership will be one person, the person the enemy does indeed truly fear.

They did not kill her and it has made her even stronger.

Romney has been too well protected, has no warrior spirit, and I believe he will be corrupted absolutely when given absolute power.

Sloppy straw man, there; the result of hasty and ill-considered construction on your part. Neither I, nor any conservative on this site, has ever demanded "a perfect 10/10 conservative" in this race, thank awfully.

The issue at hand right now, sadly, is the hapless, uninspiring liberal squish increasingly panicky RINOs are attempting to drum up support for as November (and yet another electoral pimp-slapping) hoves closer, ever closer into fateful view.

My suggestion is that you try staying as focused on that painfully quixotic little endeavor. Quite frankly: you've got your work cut out for you.

“Haters”? Can you think of a term not used by liberals that doesn’t make you sound like a third grader?

Your analogy is not even logical. Try this: Did we cry to our parents when one teacher treated us badly and also cry when another teacher treated us nearly as badly but still badly enough?

Also, the letter ‘u’ really isn’t a substitute for the word ‘you’, unless you really are a third grader.

“Obama is a usurping, treasonous tyrant who should be impeached.”

And that, my FRiend, is the true course the Republicans and Democrats should be taking. If the Republicans and Democrats were about rule of law they would have gotten that creep out of office by now and this whole Romney thing wouldn’t even be discussed. We’d have a much better candidate and Obama wouldn’t have been an issue.

Instead, we are treated to bread and circuses, as thought it matters.

The modifier ‘wicked’ I’ve not seen before. I would be interested in your elaboration on that term, as in pleae itemize what wickedness the faux melchizedek high priest is known for. ... If you’re trying to refer to his lDSinc affiliation, then his membership in the faux high priesthood would be a far more damning reality than his bishopric designation. I might remind you that there are numerous Catholics and Protestants who have defended abortion as ‘a woman’s right ot choose’ most probably because they are not aware of the humanity and aliveness of the unborn and who have changed their position on abortion when finally educated as to the reality that willfully slaughtering the alive unborn is, well, murder. So his change regarding many of the abortion related issues is not alone a sign of ‘wickedness’. I can see where Obama can be defined as deeply wicked ... it is irrational to give the bastard the benefit of the doubt knowing he defended and tried to protect the willful killing of already born children if they survived an abortion attempt. Perhaps you would elaborate on Romney’s deeply wicked nature, eh?

Did we cry to our parents when one teacher treated us badly and also cry when another teacher treated us nearly as badly but still badly enough?

I didn't did you? My Mom said take care of it, figure something out and deal with it.

I am not voting for Romney because he is a liberal, it is that simple.

You on the other hand appear to be voting for him even though he is a liberal, because you apparently suffer from obamahysteria, which would make one think that you cave or capitulate or compromise because of fear.

I understand the plurality argument, but I doubt it will matter if Obama wins.

Well, indulge your doubts, but in my analysis, it's not only the best bet, it's literally the only option open for me as I refuse to vote for Romney because to do so would be to vote against my own interests both morally and politically.

Here's the thing about MSM bias. A bridge made of balsawood, no matter how sturdy and real the illusion appears, is still fake in the real world. The MSM creates the illusion that these Democrats are popular and that conservatives are the minority, but it is just like that balsa-wood bridge: fake, therefore inevitably subject to reality. You can hear it by listening in on conversations of liberal/Democrat friends/family when they talk about how disgusted they are with Obama, and you can see it when you read the reader comments after pro-Obama stories on MSM news sites.

The MSM can ignore it all they want and hocus-pocus the illusion that such dissent is the minority, but the reality is that most Americans loathe liberalism and loathe Obama. We are seeing now the inevitable results of a minority seizing power over a majority. Only this time there's a fractal component, because in our own Republican party, with Romney a liberal minority has also seized power over a conservative majority.

I believe our system is enough still intact that indeed, a plurality lack-of-mandate for the president matters no matter WHO it involves. Clinton was relatively popular, he was a blank slate because he was new, he had the MSM staunchly on his side, and he was elected by a 43% plurality where 57% voted against him; he clearly lacked a mandate. And in the mid-terms, he got his ass kicked by the Republican Revolution. Even with the MSM and general popularity on his side, that lack of mandate still hurt him. The Republican Revolution would probably never have happened if he'd won with a majority or if HWB had been re-elected.

Almost 300 posts, and it's still alive. Probably not going to be gone anytime soon.

One thing its thread has done is highlight the polarization that exists here over this issue.

The leftist GOPe is trying to destroy any trace of an option for whom conservatives can vote.

The so-called "conservative" party is no more. They've been infiltrated at the highest levels and leftists are in charge.

I pray that The Lord gives them ashes to eat and acid to drink. I pray that true Conservatives will wake up to what has happened and fight it with all our might.

Well, we will all be looking forward to the 3 Supreme Court Justices that Obama appoints.

I don’t think anybody is considering the magnitude of Obama’s second term.

If people believe that Political Correctness has run amok, just wait.

If people think that attacks on Religion, worship and God have run amok, just wait.
