I am not voting for what we have now and I damn sure will not vote for a white version of what we have now. What part of WE ARE TIRED OF BEING MANIPULATED BY THE PROGRESSIVES IN THE republicrat party that HATE us. Understand? No socilaists and no baby killers. No votes for romney... it is NEVER going to happen.

So, let me get this straight... NOT buying in to Romney's faux-conservative play-acting constitutes being a closeted O-Bot.

Nope. Not what I was trying to say at all. What I meant was, when one sees a "Romney bashing" article, as ever, I find it annoying to think they could be Obots. That's all.

I assume this was said as a joke.

As I did, go to the NRA site and watch Glenn's speech of a few weeks ago for yourself. It's a very good, conservative, pro-gun speech. And no, I don't think his bit on Romney was a joke. Watch it for yourself, and get back to me please. I am always open to being corrected.

Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification.

Frankly, I think the antagonism comes from the guilt they feel in selling out their own principles to support a liberal like Romney.

You're absolutely right, I do feel guilty about selling out my own principles.....and I did it first with Palin. Did I cry and take my marbles home and refuse to play when she bailed? No, I then became a Cain supporter, and then a Newt supporter. To tell you the truth, I feel guilty like $hit that all this has happened....

But NOT as guilty as I would feel if Obama was re-elected because I sat on my A$$ and watched as he slowly "finished the job" wrecking this great country.

I'm treating this election as an interim project, until the Tea Party policies become fully integrated into the GOP. After all, it's only a 4-year old concept, which is nothing in the world of political thought. But it's going to take a while to get to 100%, or even a majority. Look what we accomplished in 2010. I can't say it any plainer, if we give up our vote....we've given up.

Cheer up. At least it's not Dole again. And register; give yourself the option.

How is that selling out your conservative principles? You are moving from one conservative to another conservative. Moving to a liberal like Romney is selling out.

But NOT as guilty as I would feel if Obama was re-elected because I sat on my A$$ and watched as he slowly "finished the job" wrecking this great country.

Will you feel guilty if Romney runs this country like he did Massachusetts? I won't because I'm not going to play the game of which turd smells the least. Neither of them is going to do this nation any good. My conscience is completely clear not giving either my vote.

I'm treating this election as an interim project, until the Tea Party policies become fully integrated into the GOP.

Why then are you pushing Romney? He's as antithetical to the Tea Party as a person can be and still be in the Republican Party. How is it going to help the Tea Party to have Romney as the titular head of the Republican Party? He's popular with the GOP-e types because he is their answer to the Tea Party uprising in the party.

I can't say it any plainer, if we give up our vote....we've given up.

Nonsense. By not voting for Romney, I am communicating my displeasure with the GOP-e more than you are. I won't blindly follow their lead and support someone who has beem a liberal his entire career because he has an R behind his name.

Cheer up. At least it's not Dole again. And register; give yourself the option.

If it were Dole, we wouldn't be having this conversation. I could hold my nose and vote for him but not Romney. I didn't fight in the Reagan Revolution to surrender the party to a modern-day Nelson Rockefeller. At least Bob Dole was a loyal foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution, even if he later drifted away. Mitt Romney, by his own admission, was fighting on the other side.

I am registered. I have voted for the Republican presidential candidate in every election since 1976. Not this time, not if it's Romney. I will vote down the ticket for conservatives and any Republican who at least a moderate.

I'm NOT pushing Romney! Puhleeeze! I sold out my principles, remember? I'm pushing the "end of Obama"....big difference.

Maybe you weren't in the beginning but you are now. If you weren't, then you wouldn't care how I voted.

Everyone wants the end of the Obama regime. However, I think you need to reconsider Romney if the Tea Party is of such a concern to you. Did you really think that Romney will do anything good for the Tea Party if elected when Romney's every political instinct is toward liberal, big-government solutions? I want Obama gone but I'm not going to cast a vote for someone who would be almost as bad for the nation and unquestionably, far worse for conservatism. He is the nightmare in the Republican Party that Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan were trying to expunge.
