As a staunch Conservative, Romney is MY MAN!
I am aware that many conservatives, Tea Party, and strict constitutionalists, have deep apprehension about Romney.. That is mostly based on what he actually did as the Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.. Past facts, are almost always the very best indicator of the true intent of a future development.. I couldn't agree more..
FACTS: Mitt Romney, is a fine husband and father, and was and is also a successful and an astute businessman, for a much longer period of time, than a one term Governor..
FACTS: Mitt Romney, has a life that is an open book, picked at, and dissected as only a Republican Candidate for a higher political office will be..
FACTS: Mitt Romney, has lived in and successfully conducted businesses, and held the highest political office in Massachusetts, arguably one of the MOST LIBERAL States in The USA..
FACTS: There are at least 65,000 CEO's of major corporations in the USA, Mitt Romney, was chosen, selected, and accepted the unthinkable, and thankless task of resurrecting, restructuring, reconfigured and managed the 2002 Winter Olympics as President and CEO of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee, and independently turn the troubled games into a visual, as well as a financial success.. Saving the reputation of OUR Country, in what was viewed before his arrival, to become a major disaster, of International proportions.. (NO SMALL ACHIEVEMENT)
FACTS: To successfully manage a business, enterprise, or a State for that matter, one MUST adapt to the circumstances, conditions, restrictions, and limitations of the environment with-which you MUST operate within..
FACTS: MITT ROMNEY IS A WINNER.. He has shown to be an astute, reliable, honorable, and successful, ADAPTER, something that has become the single most insidious fodder that his detractors have twisted, masked, and morphed into something we MUST fear.. Total BS..
FACTS: Our country is in trouble, FINANCIALLY, CULTURALLY, and MORALLY.. We need an ADAPTER, that can face the circumstances, conditions, restrictions, and limitations of the environment with-which we are currently living under..
THE FACTS POINT TO MITT ROMNEY as the only choice any red blooded patriot has this November!
Clear proof that Hyperbole, and Hypocrisy are paternal twins..
I've also reconfirmed that the evolution of a flame-war, hasn't changed over the years.. It really further proves that you don't always get wiser as you get older.. Whatever.. LOL
I knew that my well thought-out essay (eyes crossed), would tease the BEAST that lurks not so stealthily beneath the the tissue thin surface of our beloved FR..
SOoooooo, why did I post it?
THERE IS ONLY 3 MONTHS LEFT BEFORE THIS HISTORIC ELECTION!
We desperately need to come to a consensuses.. Shutting off debate hasn't brought about a satisfactory result.. Flame-wars hasn't worked so well either.. DUH!
I'm not looking for agreement, not even stalemate.. We need a plan..
MOST on this site want to bring our Country back from the BRINK.. Some do not.. Some are here to undermine our effort to unseat the Commie regime, currently occupying our White House and most of Congress..
WE NEED A WORKABLE PLAN, to get our first priority accomplished.. Kick Obama, and his comrades, out of our White House, out of our businesses, out of our lives.. If we can't agree on that simple FACT, we are doomed, not only in this election, but probably, forever..
We need to set a common goal to get through this election.. I really am disappointed with how we got to this point in ending up with our current nominee, Mitt Romney.. He wasn't my 1st choice, nor was he my 2nd..
Here is the rub, he may be the only man with a resume, and background to get the job done until we can fix the BIG problem for the next election primary..
I believe the current landscape is promising.. The Tea Party has taught everyone that we are still in control when we actually VOTE.. Manipulated Polls, are meaningless at this time in the election cycle..
Please understand, I do not propose to have the wisdom to assuage the disbelievers,(although, you are free to disagree).. I am asking the proponents, of the situation that I am outlining to describe a plan that accomplishes the PRIORITY GOAL, THIS TIME, UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES!
I don't want to look back on Nov 7th, and think I didn't do my part to change the results..
Sure, but the Romney/Mormon haters don't let the facts get in the way of a good story.
Several stated they would never spend another dollar at CFA. When challenged, two admitted they had never been to CFA (paraphrased, "if they had one in Wenatchee, I still wouldn't go!" LOL!!!)
There's another who lurks on FR, waiting for me to make an intemperate remark that can be repeated for all on that blog to read, so they can pat themselves on their back for their own "tolerance".
Keep fighting the good fight, FRiend.
You missed the point. It takes a massive conspiracy to murder 50 million innocent American citizens. Everyone in on the conspiracy is guilty. Like hiring a hitman, you don’t have to pull the trigger to be guilty of murder.. There was no conspiracy to legalize the theft from your brother. Your analogy fails.
i am with you, Carlo. And i think there are far more of us that agree than not.
"Romney vetoed an emergency contraception bill in July 2005, claiming that allowing it to pass into law would violate his "moratorium" on changes to the abortion laws. He vetoed a bill on pro-life grounds that the bill would expand access to emergency contraception in hospitals and pharmacies. He returned from his vacation house in New Hampshire to veto the bill, because the Lt. Govorner, Kerry Healey would have signed the bill into law. The legislature voted overwhelmingly to overturn the veto and pass the bill into law on September 15, 2005. At the time of the veto, Romney said he does not support abortion except in cases of rape, incest, and when the life of the mother is threatened. He opposed the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, criticizing "'one size fits all' judicial pronouncements". The following year, Romney's spokesperson has also indicated that were he the governor of that state, he would sign into law the controversial South Dakota abortion law, but include exceptions for cases of incest or rape, which the South Dakota law excludes."
He would have approved the Keystone Pipeline, though.
His strong proclivity to "reaching across the aisle" would have resulted in a variety of bad deals on campaign finance reform, among others.
Our VP would have far better than Plugs.
So, if we don't like Romney as a candidate because he's taken both sides on virtually every issue, we hate Mormons?
You're falling into the trap set by the Libs.
Romney has yet to crystallize his economic plan into 3 things that he can talk about at each campaign event.
When Romney says, "I've been in the private economy, I know how to create jobs", he's asking everyone to trust him. It would be far better for him to say, "here's HOW we will build an economy that creates millions of jobs."
He continues to come across as a rich guy who's out of touch with mainstream America.
After six years of running for President, you'd think he would have learned that by now.
But I took offense to your statement John McCain likely would have been as bad as Obama because it is way over the top. His many left-leaning tendencies would never have lead to the sort constitution-stomping, global Marxist, kleptocratic assaults this worst president in human history has brought to this nation.
Some examples of the sorts of things John McCain would not have done as president:
The list could go on and on. McCains a boob, not a global Marxist traitor to his nation.
When you make a statement like "he's taken both sides on virtually every issue" you open yourself to justifiable criticism that you don't have complete understanding of the facts. "Virtually every issue" is a whole lot of issues. It would be easier to discuss things with you if you gave a few documented examples.
There are posts from Romney haters, Mormon haters, and haters who are both Romney and Mormon haters. There are also posts from those who have heartfelt issues with Romney. I try to ignore the haters.
-——you don’t always get wiser as you get older.-——
I have concluded that by the time you get old, at least half of what you know or think you know no longer matters
“Screw FR and the fools that have lost their minds “
Anyone have the “Well, Bye” image?
That absolutely needed to be said twice, Carlo!
I agree —Romney’s the only nominee we have-—unless the Second Coming happens before the election, we’re stuck with him and to do other than vote for him is sadly, a vote for obammy.
Carlo, I know you better than this. You didn’t say Romney was better than Obama; there are corpses that could make THAT claim. You said Romney was a “staunch conservative.” THAT he most definitely is NOT.
Vote for Romney is you want to dis-elect Obama (a fine idea, by the way). Just don’t vote for Romney and expect a conservative.
[ WE NEED A WORKABLE PLAN, to get our first priority accomplished.. Kick Obama, and his comrades, out of our White House ]
Carlos you really must be ignorant of the INCEST in Washingtomn D.C.. Its not either or in some dualistic gambit.. The BAD GUYS are in BOTH PARTIES.. maybe several parties.. You seem to be a PollyAnna.. STOP IT..
I think few here are fooled.. Just because we savage MYTH Romney don’t mean “WE” won’t vote for his liberal probably treasonous ass...
Remember.. George “I give tax cuts and then spend like a drunken sailor” Bush?.. We voted for his ass too... He made Zero Obama POSSIBLE...
Carlo3b stated: “What are your credentials?? I know who Romney is, and the folks on this site know who I am...”
He deserved a kick in the semicolon and I gladly did in the defense of the other freeper.
I don’t give a damn who he is but I will assure you that he has false visions of grandeur that holds him higher than the serfs, proles and lower class of mankind.
“Oh, please. You Mittbots arent content with voting for him yourself, you have to browbeat, lecture, and ridicule those of use who wont.”
“Oh please” yourself, playing your loopy, imaginary victim role. Apparently you need to continue making up boogieman stories to keep yourself fired up. Let me make it simple: I don’t give a damn who you vote for, or if you vote at all.
Your sophistry fails.
You need to educate yourself on how elections in this country actually work. I would suggest starting with the 1992 debacle. And bear in mind the eight years caused by 1992 were a walk in the park compared to the four+ years that will result from a repeat in 2012.
But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.
This is your, what, 6th or 7th year pimping Willard ? You’ve been on the bandwagon for that Socialist fraud from Jump Street. It’s hard to take you seriously on a Conservative website when you consistently push for an individual utterly antithetical to Conservatism. As for whom I’m supporting, you seem to have amnesia. I’ve only answered that question a few hundred times.
Anyone knowingly allowing Obama a 2nd term out of a temper tantrum that their 10/10 dreamboat is not the nominee needs a dunk in the ice tank to be woken up to reality.
Sorry, wrong again. I am now only going to vote for Mitt as he is the last viable candidate standing. As I have stated before I am not going to participate in the suicide of our country. This is what is going to happen with 4 more years of Obama. I first supported Palin and when she did not enter the race I switched to Newt.
After the way the GOPe, Drudge, Glenn Beck and others treated Newt I swore I was not going to have Mitt shoved down my throat. I still do not visit Drudge, or listen to Beck but the Marxist Obama is so bad I have decided to cast my vote for Mitt. I send no money to the GOPe only directly to candidates like Ted Cruz.
In the last election I only supported Mitt when it was down to him or McQueeg. I actually liked Fred Thompson but that did not pan out.
Don't worry, Mitt doesn't think anything is wrong with that.
Romney, Boehner, and McConnell are finger-in-the-wind politicians. Go along to get along and get something to sign, something to take credit for, never mind if it's worth anything, never mind if it's actually worth less than nothing. That was how Romneycare got done. Romney wanted to take a stab at reforming health care at the state level. However, given the makeup of the Massachusetts legislature, there was no way he could get a half-way decent bill. But that didn't matter. What mattered was to pass a big deal with his name on it. That was the background of those Faneuil Hall signing pics we see posted here so often.
Romney does not have an anti-conservative agenda. His agenda is himself. He's a technocrat. He scored big in business. He turned around the Salt Lake Olympics. Now it's time for his career to advance again. If we have a major wave election in 2012, Boehner and McConnell will hopefully be replaced, and Romney will turn out to be a decent CEO (he's good CEO material, just not great presidential timber, like Reagan).
Obama, on the other hand, is not a finger-in-the-wind politician. He is a committed commie-fascist, anti-American ideologue. He'll take what he can get out of Congress, but, unlike most of Washington on both sides of the aisle, he is stubborn. Witness the vote on his 2012 budget: 99 to 0 in the Senate, 414 to 0 in the House. He doesn't care. Time for another round of golf or another round of speechifying and fund-raising. Obama is not a normal politician. No normal politician would behave like that.
"In the last election I only supported Mitt when it was down to him or McQueeg."
You said I was wrong, yet you just acknowledged I was right. I remember you well as being at the forefront of the Willardpimps in '08 and ignoring those FReepers here whom spelled out the man's record, both in office and his being a pathological liar. I have a real serious problem with folks who have the audacity to call themselves "Conservatives" while supporting the very individuals who are antithetical to Conservatism (not to mention morality, ethics, honesty...). We all agree Zero is horrible, the problem is, so is Willard.
I couldn’t agree with you more! Great post.
Or the four years of Romney?
Don't worry, Mitt doesn't think anything is wrong with that.
It is down to the same situation as it was last time. A Marxist or a RINO. I will choose the RINO over the Marxist. Simple as that.
A Communist or a Socialist. Both enemies of Conservatism.
You Mittens abortionists are the most sickening of all. :)
We can all play your dummy game.
Yeah well your plan sure did not work out the first time. Here we are coming up on $16 trillion in debt and did you happen to see the unemployment stories out today? These are real people whose lives are involved. We are not just talking statistics on some paper but real people. So if you want to repeat the same mistake that is your business. I will not have a hand in it. I am voting for the RINO over the Marxist.
“Anyone knowingly allowing Obama a 2nd term out of a temper tantrum that their 10/10 dreamboat is not the nominee needs a dunk in the ice tank to be woken up to reality.”
Right on. With the country coming up on $16 trillion in debt and the true unemployment articles/figures out today and these people seem to care less. I will not participate in the suicide of this country.
What was my plan ? And how will electing a Socialist enact a Conservative agenda ?
This I know....Obama is a Marxist who will destroy US if he gets 4 more years of ‘flexibility’!
Therefore I’m voting for Mitt Romney who may not be the perfect conservative but I know he loves America, has business experience and will listen to ‘we the people’.
So, according to the jist of your post, the plan is to require Conservatives to discard every_single_principle they (and this site) adhere to in order to vote for Romney... Inevitably, that is where you must start. That is where you feel that 'consensus' is to be found?
This is precisely the game played here for McCain, and there is a helluva lot more dissent now than there was then. And rightfully so.
The plan STARTS with preserving the basic principles of Conservatism. That is what we are here for. That is where we find natural consensus. That cannot be bent around your candidate. It isn't possible.
That plan would naturally support Conservative candidates at every level, to include the presidency, and let God sort it out from there. Anything other than that is a damn dirty lying shame and will inevitably be proven so. FEAR may be a great motivator, but it is very poor tool in decision making.
The WORST damage possible to inflict upon this country is the dissolution of Conservatism - That which preserves what this country is and always has been - And the easiest way toward the dissolution of Conservatism is to get Conservatives to vote *FOR* their own antithesis. To remove the only opposition to liberalism... And one does that by forfeiting the principles we are standing upon.
But I need not hope that your OP falls upon deaf ears. I already know that it will.
And since socialism is nothing but a whistle-stop on the road to communism, it is, for all practical purposes, a distinction without a difference.
“If we can’t agree on that simple FACT, we are doomed, not only in this election, but probably, forever..”
Carlo, I agree - obamao has already begun “fundamentally transforming America” in a very short period of time by using thuggery to push his fascist dreams.
I can’t think of a stronger word to describe what I feel regarding this regime other than primal fear.
Sometimes, I think the anti-Romney crowd here secretly want Obama to win so they have reason to whine and whine and whine about nObama for four more years. The pity is that they are not a lot different than the loony lefties that we had to endure for the first 8 years of this century.
Love Dubya or hate him, he did not steal the election in Florida, didn't trample on the rights of citizens, or was nearly as "stoopid" as the DUmmy, Code Pinkers and most of the population of the SF Bay Area would have you believe.

A staunch conservative that would vote for a liberal?
I question your resolve, Sir.
I understand the gravity of the situation and pragmatism and lesser of 2 evils, but you are fooling yourself thinking any of that qualifies as conservative, much less staunchness.
I can also understand thinking you are doing the right thing. Many join you, but please don't call it what it is not.
Mitt is not even remotely conservative and supporting a liberal and voting for exactly what conservatives hate disqualifies you from the label you claim.
The true label is not a flattering one.
Nowhere in my message did I attempt to describe Mitt Romney as a conservative.. I am voting for him for the same reason I hire Chef's with the ability to prepare extraordinary Ice Carvings, because my company is required to present extravagant carvings at various events..
There are some characteristics that are needed at times of vital need, and I want to have someone on hand, that specializes in those needs..
I'm not looking for a charismatic politician, we NEED a turn-around specialist.. Our government requires a mentally strong, adaptable, troubleshooter, that can take the mess that we are unfortunately confronted with, and clean it up.. I believe Romney is the man for the job with a past performance to prove it!
Nice try, but not even close.. I didn't post this to enter into a pissing contest over who has the purest heart! We to stop the bleeding.. We need to WIN the Presidency FIRST, but we also need a Congress that adheres to the Tea Party principles..
That too is our job.. We are close on both counts if we don't allow ourselves to get distracted.. We are on the same team, and I am telling you something that we both know, Obama has to go, NOW, not in 4 more years to prove some point!
The only man standing in his way is a good man, I brilliant practitioner that I believe we need at this time.. He is the right man, as I have outlined in a post above, with the mental heft to get it done!
bert, my MAN,
I knew I could stir some of the oldtimers if I started a good fight, like the good ole days.. and here you are.. HA!
Hi sweetheart, it’s been a while, I missed you.. We are back were we started fighting the GOOD WAR, at a time when the REAL needs to be said..
au contraire, my Man Jack, I never said that, I said I was, and I am.. BUT, he is the last man standing, and just happens to fit the bill.. Not who I/WE would have chosen, but not bad, considering the alternative.. LOL
