But Rubio a prominent Latino lawmaker with roots in the tea-party movement offers Romney cover with conservatives who have been hesitant to support him.
Screw you Rubio! I will not now or ever again hold my nose and vote for another liberal Republican.
In matters of style, swim with the current;
In matters of principle, stand like a rock. -- Thomas Jefferson
He is protecting his political future as most politicians do. Nothing new here. I will say though that I thought better of him but understand that today all Politicians are voters of fortunes - mainly theirs.
I thank God each day that McCain/Palin didn’t win in 08!
Better a full DNCer than a 50% GOPer!!!
My purity is assured.
Country’s screwed- but my purity is solid.
Like the Jews in Israel- I await the one true leader.
How does this relate to the Louisiana Purchase? By completing this purchase, Jefferson had to put aside his principles because the allowance for this type of transaction was not expressly listed in the Constitution.
A lot of freepers are going to attack you for refusing to vote for liberal RINOs. According to them, we should always hold our noses and vote for RINOs. Otherwise, they will not give speeches about abortion and homosexuality. It is okay if they vote with the Dims on fiscal issues like Rick Santorum does. What really matters is that he speaks words that the gullible supporters of RINOs want to hear.
Douche bag or turd sandwich? Pick the douche, Romney.
Obama is so bad Romney looks saintly. I don’t like Romney either but I still hear echos of a jug eared guy yelling “cheers da deal” in my head. No thanks. Obama must go and I don’t care who gets the nod against him. I’m for them.
Apparently, Rubio watched the clip of 0 talking to medvedev and the thought of a second 0 term scared the heck out of him. As well it should.
Yes,Yes and Yes! I want Newt but if it’s Romney, then it’s Romney!
Baby Doc Obama must go!
A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within....for the traitor appears not to be a traitor...he rots the soul of a nation...he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
Treason is committed for several reasons but,like cowardice,it's usually for personal benefit.
Yes you will.......
Take that purity down to the store and try to buy something with it.
Countrys screwed- but my purity is solid.
Whoopie-doo for you. You're more important after all.. and your purity.
By the way.. ever had a prostate exam?
Wanna bet ?
I sure am not fond of who the nominee will be, but....I also have nothing left to lose by voting for the nominee against Obama.
There really could not be anything worse. Picture Obama with the Russian President, with Israel, with this Trayvon thing. Nope, I won’t sit back and be a part of that happening. If things are still as bad, nothing changes.
If Romney isn’t any better than Obama, no harm done, the country will be over anyway.
I will take my chances and vote for the nominee.
-- to get it out front. Yes,this is a drunk thread.
RINO or Commie.
Your pick, of course.
You have everything to lose? Your principles,your honor? Wear your chains lightly my brother.
If the line:
“Countrys screwed- but my purity is solid.”
Wasn’t a tell to you, I’d love to play poker with you.
We need to get the best match we can and then put constant pressure on them to stand against liberal/progressive/socialist agendas 24 X 7 X 365. If you refuse to vote for the eventual candidate, then you join the tens of millions of idiots who brought the Kenyan to Washington in 2008.
You can express your principaled stand all you want, but there is also a practical reality in our imperfect world that you need to consider.
BTW, can you please name your "perfect" candidate?
Or, can you name the perfect past President?
Another millionaire from Massachusetts ....... I just threw up a little excuse me.
My honor isn’t tied to a presidential candidate. My honor is tied to my kids and grandkids.
They have asked me to vote for the nominee. My niece has a husband who had a good business that has been ruined by Obama. She has two children and one with a grave illness.
I have sons trying hard to make it.
That is what is important to me. We have no candidate on our side with perfect principles. None of them. I wish we could have done better, but that is a failure on our part.
We tried to get a good one and we did the circular firing squad.
I am always very leery of someone like you who signs in here in the same year as the election and pushes not voting. This time “not voting” gets us Obama. That is totally not acceptable to me.
I interpret that to mean that if your horse doesn't come in first then you're staying home, right?
Heh... Sorry, but this is not treason but political viability. Common sense to most of us.
I really like Rubio but that has nothing to do with my understanding of his political actions. When you understand this, you will be much happier.
Then what exactly will you have accomplished?
Amen. Thank you.
In my case... in over 40 years of republican activism and donating about 100k to the cause... I am personally tired of being manipulated and lied to and screwed over by the gop/e. I warned them back in 2008... millions of us warned them in 2008 and back... Reagan warned them in 1975... and yet they do not listen. Well I will not support someone like mitt romney and if the republicans nominate him... they had better find a hell of a lot more guys like yourself... because obama is going to go Hannibal Lecter on romney and there is not a thing that anyone can do about it... because every word of the attacks will have evidence and a history to back them up.
Mississippi will go for the gop regardless, so my vote means nothing... but to me. After this election... I work with Patriots to seize the gop and return to republicanism or I help a new party rise and destroy the gop. Either way... business as usual is over for the hard right.
Given a choice between cyanide and strychnine (in this case the most liberal (alleged) president in American history and the most liberal governor in American history), sensible folks say “NO.”
They just do not get it.
I’ll write in Palin and prepare for war. Been prepared for a while now anyway.
A reed that bends in the wind lasts far longer than one that breaks.
The trick is to know when to bend and when to be rigid.
Rigidity at the wrong time is equal to failure.
Restoration of our great country will be a looonnnngggg process and we must start now, not wait until 2016.
If Obama succeeds in 2012, you will have yourself to blame.
I suggest everyone consider the story of Beckett(sp?) for example of how someone can rise to the job.
I’m eating my never vote for Romney words. It was Obama’s off air “give me time” comment to the Russians that did it for me.
It’s not a vote because I like Romney. It’s a FUBO vote.
You will fix nothing and turn this country over to the left forever. Only a selfish person would do that.
How long did it take for the left to take over this country?
They are patient and we are not. We want it all now and that is not going to happen. You won’t change the indoctrination and greed that prevails in this country by electing one President no matter how freaking pure you think he or she is.
Until the culture is reversed and the work is done to turn this back, all we can do is slow it down. Reversal is hard work.
Turning this country over to the communists for 4 more years is foolish.
People around here talk all the time that a war is coming. No it isn’t. Nobody has the stomach to give up their cushy life for death and destruction for liberty like the people did in our founding days.
— and you are absolutely sure Romney wouldn’t do the same thing? It must be because of all his foreign policy experience. /sarc
The country-club, RINO elite pushed for Romney and gambled that the rank and file would line up like slack jawed idiots to pull the lever for a liberal with a history of supporting abortions and homosexual propaganda.
Based on the responses on this thread, their bet was wise.
NO F’n RINOs! Screw you GOP!
No, I’m no sure about Romney but a FUBO vote will make me have Schadenfreude when Zero exits.
All the candidates are "flawed." Romney is not merely flawed. Romney is repugnant. I will not vote for "repugnant."
Ooooh! Let's see if we can get John Kerry to run as the GOP nominee. We'd get a lot of morons tripping over their feet in their rush to support him just like they supported Arlen Specter and they are now rushing to support Romney!
This is just like when you guys gushed over Boener. Isn't he working out so wonderfully?
Screw you GOP!
You're right. It's going to be more like the Soviet Union's collapse. There won't be a choice.
That's alright LLS.
Romney doesn't need "hate filled Conservatives" like you and me. Clearly, we're in the minority.
Lots of enlightened Compassionate, socially aware Republicans like Thom Pain will vote for Romney. You know why? Well, Romney is just so gosh darn electable! After all, he's the only one who can beat Obama! Just ask any of the Mit-bots. They're just itching to tell you!
How they will whine when the eneMedia turns on their perfumed prince.
I wish FR had a “like” button.
Didn't they run McCain because it was "his turn."
It's time to fire the GOP. We need a new party. We needed it since before 2008.
I’m definitely not voting for a Rino, but I’ll definitely vote against Obama regardless of who gets the nomination. If Romney gets the nomination, I’ll be switching my party affiliation from Republican to Independent.
This isn’t sports, that’s your first problem. I’m a Conservative, I’m not a plantation slave “thank you, sir, may I have another” Republican. When the GOP nominates a Conservative, they have my vote. When they nominate a pathological liar, megalomaniac and Socialist like Slick Willard, they will not.
If we're supposed to be Beckett, should we consider how Beckett did not give into King Henry's demands?
Oh! You mean Romney is Beckett. Beckett didn't want the job. Romney has made a career out of jockeying and double talking his way in pursuit of the job.
Any way you look at it, your analogy sucks. Try again...or better yet...don't.
So you would rather have a full blown marxist, lying POS, race baiting, Jew hating bastard as POTUS for ANOTHER 4 years?
Will Romney sell us out to the Russians, stand by while another 3 million Jews are slaughtered, intentionally destroy our economy, or start a race war just to hold on to power?
Be a man, and take the right course for your country, instead of throwing it away in a prideful temper tantrum.
Obama has to go or kiss our future goodbye. At this point, only a fool can’t see that. There is no question about it.
Romney is light years better than Obama....whether he is conservative enough or not. If he gets the nomination, he has my vote, not because I love Romney...because I love my nation.
I am America...I am the USA. We know inside, where it counts, and where our hearts reside, when to "Hold Em'" or when to "Fold Em"...
Right now those bastards are bluffin'...
I call! Bring it MF'ers...I reside behind a blade of grass.
Anyone who says we are done, get your passports out and apply for a Visa in Canada, Australia, South Korea or wherever...I was raised on God, Country, Corps!
"Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you'll live... at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!"
I don;t care if it be lore...it fits here now!
No, that they don’t. I expect we’ll continue to see an increase in the R’bot trolls unless management does something about it. Replacing one abomination with another won’t change the problem, but it could very well make it worse, especially when one pretends to represent our side when he is nothing but a Trojan Horse for the opposition.
