Skip to comments.Romney vs Obama: One Critical Difference We Can't Ignore
Posted on 04/17/2012 12:52:07 AM PDT by Bronco_Buster_FweetHyagh
I am beyond disappointed that the RINO Republican establishment has saddled us once again with a scum sucking moderate. Jim Robinson has expressed his non-support of mitt Romney in no uncertain terms. I wholeheartedly agree with his disgust.
The reason that the establishment wants Romney as opposed to a true conservative is status quo. The Republican establishment is just as guilty as mainstream Democrats. They are making money off a system that is fundamentally broken. Their only concern is who is steering a sinking ship.
However, there is one critical difference between Romney and Obama. It is a difference we cannot ignore. Barack Obama hates the united states of America. Barack Obama believes that the USA needs to be taken down a notch. Barack Obama apologizes for our history. Barack Obama believes that the core foundation of our country is rotten. Barack Obama believes that the "so-called founding fathers" we're Evil and to blame.
The Republican establishment may well have saddled us with the one piece of crap candidate who can actually lose to Barack Obama. I can't stomach the idea of voting for a left of center RINO like Mitt Romney.
However, mitt Romney does not hate America. There is no more pressing danger and threat to our country than Barack Obama in the hard-core socialist communist left wing.
I did not want George Bush. I did not want John McCain. I do not want mitt Romney. I am sick of the Republican establishment counting on me to vote for their mainstream moderate candidates simply because they know I will not abandon ship. In essence, they take true conservatives for granted.
We should not take our ball and go home just because we are not winning this time. There will be no third-party candidate. A vote for anyone other than that Romney come election time will be a vote for Barack Obama. I don't care how much I dislike Mitt Romney. And nothing anyone here can say can make something positively untrue true. Barack Obama and Romney are not the same. The one critical difference is that Barack Obama hates this country and secretly or not so secretly wishes to destroy this country and change its future for the worse.
We got stuck with Bill Clinton because of disillusioned conservatives who voted for Ross Perot. Surely we are smart enough people to learn from the past.
There is no difference.
Nope,cant,wont,Vote Romney.No Way.
“Sell out now!”
If BHO wins blame the GOP for once again nominating someone I can not and will not vote for.
The lesson of the past is we keep voting for the GOP establishment candidate handed to us and the GOP establishment keeps handing them to us.
Each year it is the same, with people saying we have to vote for the GOP candidate because the other choice is worse. What is worse though?
By continuing to vote for the GOP establishment candidate year after year we see year after year decline. Remember, the GOP had control of the House, Senate and the White House and did nothing with it. Remember their speeches when the Dem's took over and the GOP got trounsed. Oh, we're sorry, we know we did not do what we had the power to do, were sorry. That's what they said.
Guess what? Until conservative voters sit out an election en mass you are going to get the same all over again and again and again.
Sorry, I will not vote for Romney. If enough conservatives do the same thing then in four years the GOP establishment will realize they need to listen. I repeat, I will not be voting for Romney.
Stand on principle. Do not vote for Romney. Send an unmistakable message to the Republican leadership and backers. Remove Obama, his Democrat accomplices, and the complicit RINOs from office by a combination of recalls, direct parliamentary actions, conventions, impeachments, and elections of lower elected officials. Remove Obama as an ineligible and illegitimate President, and you render null and void every act, executive order, statute, treaty, and appointment since Obama was unlawfully put into the office. The Speaker of the House can then serve as President Pro-Tem until Congress organizes another special election. Conservatives and their supporters can then make it known that it is the Citizens who rule and not the handful of elected officials who defy the Citizens. Begin by organizing citizen caucuses in every precinct of the United States, until the rest of our Citizens no longer can believe it is simply impossible tilting at windmills. Who chooses to be the servant, and who chooses to be the master?
You truly believe that Mitt Romney is a communist at heart? That he hates our country?
Vote totals so far. Whether you like it or not, I personally loathe it, a plurality of the GOP electorate, not the GOP ESTABLISHMENT, voted for Romney. Now we must concentrate on how best to kick Obama out of office.
My take is get Obama out, vote conservative House and Senate. I’ll be voting Newt in the primary.
We have heard this before. I’ve said the same thing before. Remember Ross Perot? Conservatives abandoned George Bush Sr. in favor of Ross Perot. Result? Bill Clinton. Yeah - we really showed them. Not a truly conservative nominee since then.
RomneyCare. Need I say more?
By your reasoning, Obama won the last election so you should be supporting him.
There’s absolutely little difference between these candidates. If Romney emerges out of the convention this summer as the nominee then the establishment has lost the race before it even begins.
Boy, my sentiments exactly. But deep down, I still feel I have to suck it up...one more time. It kills me, but there it is. I don't think I'm the only one with this feeling. Here is a portion of a transcript of a recent Glenn Beck NRA speech. (Good speech, by the way)
"The solutions that we need are right in front of us. We need to find a leader. And I got news for you, I mean Wayne [LaPierre] should have reconsidered asking me to speak when I first said, "you know I think we should all look at Michelle Bachman", and like 15 minutes later she drops out of the race. And then I'm like, "you know Rick Santorum is a really good guy"...and then last week he drops out of the race.
So, we have Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney's our guy. Now let me tell you something. I haven't been a Mitt Romney fan. I've done a lot of research. I've looked into his past, I've looked into all his policies, I've looked into everything I could possibly find on Mitt Romney to see if there was SOMETHING I could really get my arms around and say YES, the American people need to know this, and here it is...
Mitt Romney is my guy, because Mitt Romney.... is not ....a communist!
I know that's a pretty low bar, but I'm willing to take that low bar. Look, what do you say we make sure no Marxists, or communists, or revolutionaries are in the White House next year? ....are you in, or are you out?"
--Glenn Beck, 2012 NRA Annual Meeting, 4/14/2012
At least Willard does not rub our faces in it as McCain did (remember grow up; etc.?)
If we can get this rino elected and I stress if, then we should work for a third party. Is the Constitution Party the answer?
Get a grip.
Just as the nation's ignorant chattering class routinely gets spun by the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms, so too does a sizable portion of the GOP primary electorate get spun by the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms, who are themselves spun by... the Republican establishment elite.
How do you think we ended up with McCain and Dole?
What do you mean, "we", kemo sabe?
I will not vote for or support a fricken abortionist, homosexualist, gun grabbing, liberal judge appointing, amnesty pushing, global warming hoax pushing, bailout pushing, stimulus pushing, statist, fascist, socialist, mandate loving, constitution trampling, liberty killing, tyrant. Have no idea if he actually hates America, but he has absolutely zero respect for our founding principles, our inalienable rights our individual sovereignty or our Liberty!!
I’d rather fight Obama than kiss the GOP-e’s RINO ass with this liberal/progressive, statist/fascist SOB!! If he ends up as the nominee, then the GOP is dead as a conservative force. Further, he’s going to lose to Obama anyway so killing the GOP was for naught! Idiots all!! C’mon. Romney is so bad he lost to McCain for crying out loud!! They’ll never get this leftist mole by the bible belt!! Obama is laughing at these idiots.
No way. The Democrat party in no way, shape or form reflects my principles nor would I support any present day Democrat president, particularly Comrade Obama.
In a democracy (or in a republican government), the majority prevails but there should always be room for the loyal opposition.
Basically what I am saying we must play with the cards we are dealt. It might be characterized as choosing between the lesser of two evils, but the alternative is totally surrender. If the lesser of two evils wins at least we buy time and slow the headlong ruch into socialism. Consider how many laws are enacted each and how many laws are repealed. Look at the problems Greece and Spain are encountering in their attempts to rein in government spending.
This may well be the most bizarre election ever in the USA.
Nope, not buying that one. Ross Perot has nothing to do with this conversation.
Than what? a no vote is a vote for Obama
There isn`t any way I`m voting for Romney. He`s a liberal dressed in moderate clothing. And how do we know he doesn`t hate the USA? Liberals by their nature are anti-American.
The Constitution Party nominee gets my vote this time around. People can prattle on about wasted votes, etc., but my party`s nominee has no less a chance of beating Obama than Romney does. Obama could stomp squealing, cowering, three-week-old puppies to death on live national TV one week before the “election,” but it changes nothing... he still wins in a walk. Mitt Romney is not going to be elected President.. not in November.. not ever.
Yes, a second Obama term will be hell on earth for America, but it has a nice silver lining: We`ll have seen the last of Mitt Romney and his toxic brand of smear politics.
Glenn Beck: “Mitt Romney is my guy because he`s not a..communist.”
And this is where we are just 23 years after the departure of President Reagan. We`re pushed to vote for someone because they`re “not a communist.”
It does indeed show how far America has fallen, doesn`t it? Notice how no one really steps up and says “I want Mitt Romney to be my commander-in-chief!” No.. instead it`s all about who Romney ISN`T.
And that isn`t going to get it done in November. The GOP E types knew that all along. To them, the goal was surrendering the presidential race and hoping for the best down-ticket.
The Republican Presidential primary was rigged from the beginning. They wanted us to think it was a fair and honest process. Good intentioned people donated campaign money to the GOP Republican party machine without much thought on where the money went, or how it was spent.
Romney didnt win the primaries fair-and-square as the political pundits would have you believe. In many states, the GOP launched a lot of RNC contribution money (10:1) against conservative candidates disguised as Super PACs. This was never a fair fight! A lot of individual contributors to the RNC should be very upset with how their money was spent.
I believe as a people we believe in elections, and many are awaiting the results of 2012. If Obama wins, he will most certainly provoke a civil war and/or economic collapse.
Romney wants to get elected, and stay in office for a second term, so he wont have the stomach to rein in entitlement spending that would otherwise cost him votes. Either way, we are on a fast train, or a slow train, set on the same tracks that lead off a cliff! When the ultimate collapse happens, not if, but when...we need to step in and grab state sovereignty back. This is essentially what happened with the former Soviet Union.
Stinky hates America.
What's Albinobamaromney's excuse?
Unfortunately the damage Obama would inflict on our country will effectively be irreversible. Can you name one law that has been repealed in the last two years? So you are willing to permanently subject your children to the slavery of socialism. Will you look in a mirror and say ‘I was in part responsible for the misery we are now experiencing’ before denoucing Obama. As conservatives are rightly fond in reminding us that our actions have consequences, will you take responsiblity for giving Obama another four years to wreak havoc on this country. Your victory will be pyrrhic.
Who would the military prefer as their CiC?
Skr - exactly.
For all the take-your-ball-home armchair pundits, ask yourselves that. Do you really truly believe that the average soldier, putting their life on the line daily, believes there is no difference between Obama and Romney?
Your comments seem to parrot the liberal mantra of society is at fault and therefore the individual is not responsible for his unwise actions, to wit those contributing to the GOP were taken in by the con artist establishment. I may be unique is that I cannot ever recall being taken in by political commercials or telephone calls or mailings. If I make an error in judgement, I take full responsiblity for that error.
We will work against the Romney ticket.
Romney is a Democrat who is posing.
NO to RINOs.
NO to ROMNEYCARE.
NO to Shapeshifter Romney the Lying RINO.
When you go to the polls this November, please remember that you are not only voting for president. You will also be voting to replace current Senators and House representatives. This is where the power lies. These are the people who control our money, not the president. If we can get rid of enough of those Socialist Democrats and tired old RINO’s who have helped to enable Obama, then we just might have a chance of saving the Republic. You can’t afford to stay home on election day, no matter how much you dislike Romney.
The last part of your post is true no matter the name, Obama or Romney, in the first part of your post. Now, Romney would do it differently than Obama, likely by giving us Casper Milquetoast justices in the pattern of Bush 41 with David Souter. Obama would remain in the “wise Latina” mode, picking justices to divide us rather than bring us together.
**** mitt... we are not going to vote for that pos and those of you that are trying to convince us that mitt is not what he in reality is... well it is NEVER going to happen... promote mitt... you lose... he loses and America loses.
The “delusion” is chasing the false hope that Romney will stave off Obama.
Welcome to the United Soviet States of America..where the Pravda State Media vet the candidates to the pleasure and needs of the RinoCrat UniParty.
This election will be a non-election...featuring the state approved candidates-whose only distinction is whether they are black or white.
You do not get there by being a beltway castroti and voting election after election for progressive drones of the new world order. The republican party has NEVER been a conservative party... the only time they acted as one was when Reagan beat the crap out of them and the dims. We will seize the party and purge you progressives... or we will destroy it and build anew. We only have to look at the left to see how they took over the dim party. They lost a few elections and then in 3.5 years... their agenda is in place. mitt is a dim... go spread your crap at the DU!
The reason they keep pulling the same cr*p on you is because you keep falling for it! Stop falling for it! You KNOW (R)Money is not the answer...so don't vote for him! And stop blathering about how you don't have any other choice! You have choices!
The damage that`s been done to America will not be undone by the likes of Romney. Can you tell me one thing Romney intends to accomplish, aside from nibbling around the edges of the big-government leviathon and managing the overall decline of this country? Romney goes to such great lengths trying to sound like a conservative on Monday, a moderate on Wednesday and a liberal on Friday nobody really knows what the hell the man stands for. So what are our guideposts, other than his decidedly liberal background as MA governor?
I settled for Bush I and II, Dole and finally McCain. And this time, as the GOP “settles” on its weakest and worst candidate in modern history, I`m saying “no thanks.. not this time.”
Reagan said it best when addressing his departure from the democrat party.. “I didn`t leave that party; it left me.”
Excellent piece - I agree wholeheartedly. If ever there was an election where we wanted to teach the RINO establishment a lesson, this isn’t it. There’s no turning back after obama’s term two. Look at the in your face crap he’s pulling while running for a second term. I’d hate to see what he does when he has nothing to lose. the damage will be irreparable. He’ll be doing a lot more than raising the rainbow flag in a war zone. Four years is a very long time. I don’t think I could handle watching him rip our country apart day after day for another half decade..
Thank you for that timely word. Yes, and when we complained that nothing was getting done, even while the GOP held the presidency and both houses of congress, the establishment told us, "We need a super-majority to get those things done! Give us a super-majority!" Buncha lyin' power mongers.
