As I said on several other endorsement threads, we can’t assume that people giving these endorsements have the same information people here have or are using the same issues. Cantor may not have 40 hours a week to dig into all of Romney’s flip flops and only has to go on what Romney is portraying now.
It is why people shouldn’t base their votes on endorsements (albeit, if you are endorsed by groups like the Taliban, NOW, the KKK etc, that is another story) but on their own values.
I'll vote on Super Tuesday (Gingrich) but I do not expect to vote in November. The GOP isn't worth my time.
Not surprised. That is why some of us here were saying way before the Republican Nomination race even started, maybe it was better to just fashion a brand new grassroots, anti-establishment Conservative/Constitutionalist/Tea Alternative Party and start from one year ago to ballot qualify nationwide and run a name brand Conservative leader as its standard bearer, rather than trying to change things this year in 2012 from within the Republican Party, hoping somehow THIS year would be different and we could overturn the old order and get away from the “coronation of a moderate” such as for Bush, Dole and McCain and now Romney, under their hopeleslsy rigged establishment system. We may have lost a lot of time we could have otherwise used to construct an infrastructure. Now we are liable to be stuck with Romney and I know many, many of us will be down-ticketers and will not vote for that guy, nor further enable the Republican Party Establishment.
This shouldn’t really surprise anyone.
Cantor sold out a long time ago.
Cantor has been castrated by Bohener. And DeMint has been castrated by McConnell. It’s just disgusting.
My caucus vote was for Santorum but I too fully expect to be writing in for President or finding a third party in November.
“I’ll vote on Super Tuesday (Gingrich) but I do not expect to vote in November. The GOP isn’t worth my time.”
I early voted for Newt. I will write-in and vote down line in Nov if I must.
Super. Let's have 4 more years of Hussein.
And don't start on me. If I were voting on Tuesday, it would be for Gingrich, too. Mitt makes my skin crawl.
Romney is a lot of things, but he ain't a communist, OK?
How is Jim doing that going to change anything? At most, that may influence a few thousand members, many of which primaries have already passed for?
How about if you let Jim choose who Jim wants to endorse and each individual freeper decide who they want to support.
Last time I checked, most FReepers would be fine with either Newt or Santorum with the exception of the typical handful who play the may candidate or no way role.
Plain and simply, there is more in it for Cantor personally by supporting Romney.
Face the facts, that is what politics has devolved to any more.
Democrats arrange the deck chairs to the left and Republicans fight to arrange the deck chairs to the right.
They are the crew and we are the paying riders.
In the long run, we ALL go down, the crew gets the lifeboats...
All the dominos will begin to fall, especially if Romney wins Ohio. If that happens, it is over.
Please vote in November as not voting is the same as giving Obama two votes. If you lose a battle, it isn’t the war. At least give us some time to regroup and organize, then mount an attack. My gripe with conservatives is the lack of organization, the value of which is clearly shown by Obama’s election.
He's worse, he's a socialist who calls himself severely conservative....
Wake up? Obama would crush Santorum in debate. It would take Bam about two minutes to get under Rick’s thin skin and make him say something stupid. One thing Santorum has continually demonstrated is that all too often he shoots from the lip without engaging his brain first.
Nobody will convince me any of our candidates will be as bad as Obama. I voted yesterday in the Washington caucus for somebody maybe you will approve of, but come November I dont give a GD who our candidate is, I will be voting for him, to send that disrespectful America hating A-hole back to Chicago.
That is the Prime Directive.
Unless there are some great changes before November, I plan on writing in. I won't just not vote however I will NOT vote for a lying severe conservative who knows very well he is nothing but a socialist hack that belongs in the dimocrat party!
