Liberals don't want to jinx it. It terrifies the right. And the press would prefer a nail-biter. But the fact is that finding Romney's path to victory is getting harder every day.
There's a secret lurking behind everything you're reading about the upcoming election, a secret that all political insiders knowâor shouldâbut few are talking about, most likely because it takes the drama out of the whole business. The secret is the electoral college, and the fact is that the more you look at it, the more you come to conclude that Mitt Romney has to draw an inside straight like you've never ever seen in a movie to win this thing. This is especially true now that it seems as if Pennsylvania isn't really up for grabs. Romney's paths to 270 are few.

I was one who said they would NEVER vote for Romney, and that would
still be true if we had not been betrayed by Justice Roberts. I will now
vote for Romney and hope to GOD in heaven above we do NOT end up
living in socialist country!!! If the senate and congress can put the reins
on Romney we will start the path back to freedom, however it will take
all of the years we have all been asleep!!!
Thompsky(Marxist schmuck), meet Carter (Black Liberal)!
Terrible as it sounds, just read some of the posts around here, there seem to be quite a few advocating to vote third party or not vote for president — which might be just the exact margin Obama needs to get reelected.
There seem to be many more posts bashing and hating Romney, than posts advocating defeating Obama. A sad state of affairs, the conservatives might be the ones who tilt the scale to Obama.
Even in this thread, you can see people expressing preference for an Obama win.
Just look at DoughtyOne’s post (#12):
“At this point the earliest chance we have to install a Conservative is January 2017, and we all know that isn’t going to happen unless Romney does lose now.”
Here’s his bio...
I know it’s wiki, but wiki is much more conservative than he is.
That’s what I thought. You’ve got nothin.
All you could do is tell us Obama is Satan.
Sorry, I don’t give a damn if he is Satan, I’m not voting for Satan’s first lieutenant. Just get that out of your mind right now.
We said the same thing when Clinton was in office. And then we had eight years of Republican bloat and got nowhere. Oh wait, we got a Supreme Court Chief Justice that knew how to toss a ruling on Obamacare to Barack Obama.
When it comes time for me to die, I want to die quickly, not by a thousand cuts.
If the Republican party is going to collude with the Democrats, then it’s best to let Obama take the nation down, and then we can get on with rebuilding.
F BO. F MR. F the GOPe.
You’re whizzing into the wind here.
I will never cast a ballot for the liberal Romney. I will hope for a Conservative candidate. If we don’t get one, I will write in Palin.
You guys whom support RINO Romney are so focused on winning the battle that you will lose the war.
Did you give any thought to what happens if Obama is reelected?
Hint: Obamacare will be implemented, think of the SCOTUS, taxes, Constitution, free speech, not to mention the economy...
Yeah, but these purist jerks will be so satisfied that thet thwarted
Romney that they will hapiily overlook the flack that they succeeded in finishing off America! That’s the ticket!
“You guys whom support RINO Romney are so focused on winning the battle that you will lose the war.”
There are key battles in every war where if you lose the battle, you lose the war.
This is one of those elections.
“If the Republican party is going to collude with the Democrats, then its best to let Obama take the nation down, and then we can get on with rebuilding.”
The thing that makes me afraid the most is that Cloward - Piven is strong with Obama.
The economy collapsing to the point where a re-elected Obama can rebuild on a soft Marxist infrastructure frightens me to death.
This is so sad! Who would have thought that FreeRepublic would be the ones that may determine the election of Obama!
This is really depressing and DoughtyOne comments kind of top it off - we are lost! America WILL become another third world nation like Greece - at best.
You have nothing to add here. All you can tell us, is that Obama is terrible.
Nevermind that Romney is terrible. It only matters if the (D) is terrible. Who cares if the (R) is terrible too. You’re nuts!
That worked for me for over twenty years since Reagan. No more!
Sure Obama is a prick. We talk about it every damned day. And until six months ago, we talked about another prick. Well guess what, he’s your knight in shining armor now. Well, he’s not mine. Go back to your supervisor at the RNC and tell them I said to F O.
Listen long and hard. In the spring of 2016, listen to those of us who say we aren’t going to vote for a Leftist anymore. Unlike 2012, you better damn well believe us.
Mitt appointed the vast majority of his judges, as Leftists. What makes you think he’s going Conservative with his picks for the SCOTUS? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...
I predict that if Romney is not elected, the result will be a Democrat Prez in 2012.
And a socialist regime unleashed.
You know Deagle, who delivered us into the Great Recession?
Was that Obama? For the record it was another RINO, some folks told us we had to vote for.
What the hell is it going to take to wake you folks up?
Fortunately, that number is few and dwindling.
What’s with all the filthy language on FR as of late ? I’m sure you can make your points without this type of language.
It’s as simpe as this: if you vote for Romney, you are abandoning any hope of a conservative resurgence in America. Instead, you are telling the GOPe, “Yes, we voters prefer Dem lite like McCain and Romney. Please, Sir, may I have another?”
Throw away your principles if you like, but don’t expect everyone else to do the same and support your pathetic candidate.
All is NOT lost!
Have some faith in God and your fellow Americans.
We’ve had our backs against the wall before, with Carter.
Granted, it’s worse now, but it was VERY bad then.
I’m not saying that Romney is Reagan, but if we get more TEA party types in the Senate, they will hold Romney’s feet to the fire.
That’s what you folks say every four years. Guys, it’s over. Stick a fork in it. That scare tactic is dead. Bury the damned thing and put a pretty marker on it.
We get a puddin brain that well tell you is going to screw us over, and then he does just what we said by handing off a nation in full meltdown.
And now you’re asking us to approve of one that is even worse going in, and you have to audacity to tell us the other team may destroy the nation. But for the grace of God, George Bush didn’t destroy the nation.
What part of that are you missing?
NO MORE RINO LEFTISTS! THEN END! IT’S OVER!
You HAVE TO come to grips with this.
I truest NO politicians - neither party and neither should you! It is up to the people to persuade those in office to do the right thing. That does mean that it matters little who we elect (yes, they all seem corrupt and probably are at some point), but if left up to the people, we can and will transform them!
Therefore, when the far left is pushing the buttons and getting results, you ought to revolt and bring in others that can be pushed in another direction - NOT give up and let things go to hell in a hand basket!
So... get off you high horse and get with the program! We have to do what is necessary to prevent the country from becoming a Socialist republic. If that does not bother you, then you should not be voting anyway!
If I sound mad, It is because of silly people like you!
Oh, what a load of crap! What happened after the Tea Part victory? NOTHING. Boehner et al. have made darn sure that it’s business as usual.
You Romney supporters sound totally delusional.
