No, you're voting for your new-and-improved liberal and pretending that you're "kicking the Kenyan's a$$." I'll be voting for weakening whichever liberal wins, your guy or Obama.

Now go post another silly picture.

What do you have to talk to me about Finster... i.e. ping
I’m not a conservative... I’m a radical..

I will vote for Myth this time but will leave the party after that.. 2013...
You seem to think your pretty smart.. I’m not..
After all I’m a republican..

Proof: I voted for all three Shrubs several times.. AND believed that the last 5 presidential elections was not a comedy cartoon.. a Kubuki Theater skit..

This election surely is absolutely a cartoon.. Running the inventor of Romney-care against the inventor of Obama-care is a cartoon.. I’ve had with cartoon elections.. I’m through.. The american people are being played like Pavlov’s dogs.. When I hear the dog whistle it now pisses me off.. I’m not amused anymore.. My mouth does not water-up..

I have dreams of a gang gallows on the White House lawn with a long line of entertainment waiting.. I would voluteer to pull the trap in a second.. with 12 hour shifts.. and I see Myth Romney in the line..

After all if the people of Mass. love Romney he’s dirty..
He has ten foot pole marks all over him..

You hope Romney wins in a landslide? A popular mandate, so he and moderates can point to it and tell YOU to sit down and shut up because YOU are a conservative, and conservatives didn't win the White House in a landslide, Romney's progressive liberal brand of "Republican" did?

Your tagline is REALLY false advertising. Wow.

No, there are many choices more than two. You are so conditioned to think a certain way that you fail to see the other options. That’s all.

Actually, mojit, you are confusing "outcomes" with "choices." Like you, I know that we face only one of two outcomes, Romney or Obama. But we have many choices in terms of who to vote for at the top of the ticket. My choice to vote third party knowing that the outcome will still be Obama or Romney, is such that my vote will necessarily count against the popular mandate of whichever liberal wins. Your choice is that it will necessarily make liberalism more powerful in the Republican party.

It is what it is. You've been slacking on the derisive pictures, dude. What's up?

I pinged you as a courtesy ping because I think I saw a post on the thread from you related to former Obama supporters saying they were going to vote for Romney. Don't read anything into the ping, hosepipester.

You seem to think you're pretty smart..

No, I think I'm careful. YOU think I think I'm smart; that's your deal, not mine. But man o manischevitz, you're right about "I'm not, after all, I'm a Republican." I hear ya -- I've voted in every major and mid-term election since 1976 and voted straight Republican ticket in every single one of them. This November will be the first time in my life, in 36 years of voting, that I will have ever declined a Republican on any ballot, let alone at the top of the ticket.

It will take the most courage I've ever needed to muster in an election -- voting for Romney would be the path of least resistance. But I'm just "radical" and "conservative" enough finally to have figured out Einstein's definition of insanity. And it only took me 55 years!

I like your gang gallows fantasy.

Where do you think conservative Republicans would stand in Congress in opposing liberal moves by a very liberal top Republican and top political figure backed by such a sound popular mandate?

One crisis at a time. First, let's get that black communist out of office and THEN we can worry about dealing with Romney's liberal urges. If you push against Romney so hard that Obama wins, what have you gained?

If Romney wins, the economy jumps back to life. Let's celebrate that and THEN we can start keeping Romney in check. If Obama wins, we have four more years of excrement on a shingle, plus a lawless president that won't care how many laws he breaks or how many executive orders he signs to circumvent Congress and now has no re-election to keep his communism in check.

If you think Romney is liberal, you just wait to see what Obama would do in a second term. I can't risk that happening. NO SANE AMERICAN CAN RISK THAT HAPPENING.

So stop doing Obama's bidding which is the only think you can possibly hope to accomplish with your sophistry.

One crisis at a time.

Wrong. Look at the course you're plotting to avoid lethal shoals altogether, because if you get in them, navigating them "one crisis at a time" with a liberal behind the wheel is guaranteed to have bad results.

You want to get "the black communist" out of office because you are so certain that a Repubican congress, even if Obama only won on a plurlaity (very likely the best he could do, reading the tea leaves), wouldn't have the courage to fight him -- yet you think that same Congress would defy the defacto leader of their own party who won with a solid popular mandate majority?

Wishful thinking, anyone?

Romney sure as heck didn't do much for the economy of Massachusetts. Really, there's so much wishful thinking that must be engaged in anticipating Romney. Obama is a weak fraud -- but you are so terrified of his imaginary power that you refuse point blank to consider means to make him vulnerable and take advantage of it. Instead, you advocate voting to make liberalism more powerful in the Republican party. It is quite, quite that simple: that is what you are proposing to do, and then wishing, wishing, wishing that the liberal you elect will not act like the liberal you KNOW him to be.

Because you cannot handle the REAL risks of Romney winning on a landslide and the REAL sense of at least voting for a plurality to prevent a mandate of either liberal, you are reduced to accusing me of sophistry, ironic because you then accuse me of doing "Obama's bidding." YOU are doing liberalism's bidding. FACE IT. And then face that crisis FIRST.

Personally I recommend Romney nominates Palin as VP.

Then we can all vote for him.

“A new Gallup poll shows that nearly 10 percent of voters who supported Barack Obama during his 2008 run have decamped and will be supporting Republican challenger Mitt Romney in this next election.”

____________________________________________________________

And this does not include the roughy 10% (IMHO) of Obama 2008 voters who will likely stay home in November. In other words, Obama is in deep dodo.

Those who want Obama to win (which if you notice, they never come out and say directly) think that putting the nation through another 4 years of Obama is going to advance the cause of conservatism.

How, they never say.

What ideas, you guys have no ideas, just let Obama win and complain about the GOP not nominating the right guy.

You are really delusional if you think the GOP controlled Congress is going to stop Obama!

Even with TeaParty victories, the Senate will still be controlled by the RINOs, and they will have to deal with a last term President who will be emboldened to finish what he started in his first term, the destruction of the US.

Obamacare will be funded and it will destroy the economy.

No, either Obama or Romney wins, that is reality.

You have this 'advanced plan' thinking Obama will be 'weakened' if he wins reelection!

When Democrats win elections, they always see it as a mandate, no matter how close the election.
