Mitt or Rick ? YES like it it not this is OUR CHOICE!

Posted on 02/29/2012 4:05:27 AM PST by Dan.israel.2011

Okay my FRiends, this is it... We have to choose now! Are we going to support Mittens or Rick Santorum.

A vote FOR Newt at this point is a vote for four more years of Obama's MITTens?

Please please please take off your MITTens and put ON your sweater vest!

That’s nonsense. Newt is still alive and Santorum is in a great position. Don’t listen to the pundits, they haven’t got it right yet!

Lose? Speak for yourself.

Rick Santorum beating Mittens is a WIN!

Voting for Newt at this point is a vote that could have/should have gone to defeat Mittens.... The RNC-e/DNC-e are counting on Newt & Rick to split over 50% so Mittens/Obama can steal the nomination.

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Pundits?

No it is simple math my FRiend...

NOT-Romney beats Romney every time. But NOT-Romney voters need to grab their sweater vest and hit the trail to defeat mittens.

Santorum did pretty decent in Michigan yesterday. He won something like 53 of our 83 counties. Romney won the more liberal areas and Santorum won the Rural vote.

The media set out to destroy him by running with the “Santorum is asking democrats to cross over” narrative without telling the other side of the story.

It was Romney supporters who wanted the open primary and Romney himself has used the same tactic and was using it yesterday. My sister is a liberal democrat and says Romney supporters knocked on her door a couple of times yesterday. She told them that she was a liberal democrat and they said they didn’t care as long as she was willing to help stop Santorum’s radical extremist views.

Romney is back up with his “inevitable” meme. If he has that working going into super Tuesday, the sheep will be heading back into the pen. Tough to see how to bust him now.

See we have this process, for deciding our candidate.

It’s called the primaries. I’m all for Santorum - I really am, but I’m also all for letting the candidates slug it out, fair and square.

Let the primaries work. Americans vote. Best candidate win.

It’s still real, real early in the primaries. Next Tuesday, we start to see the results which will make the difference one way or another.

Eventually, once we’ve got our candidate - it’s time to start speaking to each other civil once again, and start working together to defeat the Communists.

**If you were awake you would be able to count the votes**

There is a running total of the popular vote on a thread somewhere: IIRC It shows the following:

Romney 1,000,000
Newt 900,000
Santorum 800,000

False.

Santorum people just need to vote for Newt. After all, the Santorum big-goverment liberals said the same thing about Newt voters. I think Sen. Santorum is now coming up with a peice of legislation to help government control the issue.

LOL.

I think Santorum is a fine gentleman but I don’t want him my nominee. He will be slaughtered by Obama. It’s a perfect set up for complete destruction. And I don’t want Ozero to appoint any more judges.

Nope. The primary is my chance to pick who I think would make the best president— Gingrich.

After the primary is when it is whittled down to like it or not choices.

At that time... I will vote against Obama.

Take more than half of the Newt numbers from the early primaries and put those in the sweater vest collumn because most of Newts votes came from voters who PREFFERED Rick Santorum but voted for Newt because they lacked the FAITH that their firsr choice could win and made a horse bet rather than a vote... The numbers correct themselves with each primary. Super Tuesday will show this to be true.

Put on your sweater vest now and help us DRIVE the Rick Santorum train rather than jump on the crowded caboose in November.

My choice was/is Newt and I resent the hell out of what is the incredible 'willful' ignorance of the RNC/GOP for their imposition/manipulation of this Primary to the extent that they have almost destroyed our Party; while jeopardizing America's future as they do so.

This Primary should have been a 'rescue' mission. It is anything but that.

That said; I will vote for whatever Republican is 'last standing'.

The times are far too serious to put a novice in as POTUS. We have watched in horror as a motivated Marxist is methodically destroying our Constitution.

Santorum is a good man - but does not have any executive experience running a gas station - much less a nation of 300 million sheeple wearing sweater vests.

We need a POTUS who has a deep understanding of how, when and where the Federal Government got corrupted and a vision of how to undo the damage. Newt is that man.

No need to be pedantic. What Dan means is that anyone with media (read: we do not k ow where they get their marching orders so their bias is NOT necessarily a legit part of the process) support, who was “inevitable” 3 years before the election, should not just win by media fawning and trickery. If we don’t want Mitt foisted upon us, which we as conservatives DO NOT, we need to put all our effort behind the one guy who can beat him.

And Newt is far out of the game now. If all the brilliant, strong, fighting FReepers would put their effort behind Rick, we have a chance. Otherwise it could be over on Super Tuesday because people insist on Newt and thus don’t engage in the actual fight.

Maybe JimRob will decide to turn his support for Santorum this week, to help us stop this odious Rom-mentum. That might help.

It`s down to this:

2. Indies and mods don`t like Santorum and refuse to support him.
3. Sane voters don`t like Paul and refuse to support him.
4. Conservatives don`t like Romney and refuse to support him.

So.... now what?

Agree about Newt's chances, unfortunately.

While I absolutely would rather have RS in the WH than MR in the WH, I am very afraid that he has lost too much of the women's bloc.

P>He should have just shut up and focused on winning rather than shooting from the hip on social issues that frankly mean little to the majority of voters in a country headed for the cliff economically.
