Romney troll.

Liar.

I don't support Mitt Romney, you asshole. I voted for Newt Gingrich in the Georgia primary, Blogpimp.

Two questions:

1. Are you going to support Romney if he is the Republican nominee?

2. Did I just respond to you trolling my post or not?

So why are you pinging Jim? Do you think he has a problem with posting a link to the homepage of a Reaganite political party whose platform agrees with every jot and tittle of FR’s mission statement?

Or maybe you don’t understand how the internet works? We post content and links to pertinent information. That’s what makes it the “inter” “net.”

If Romney is the nominee there will be no national GOP in 2016. There may not even be a national GOP after August 2012.

Ridiculous. Romney will be the nominee. There will be a strong GOP in 2016. Rush, Hannity, Coulter, Levin, Rubio, Walker, Ryan, DeMint, Gingrich, Santorum, and Palin will all be supporting Romney, and he has a good shot at winning.

In 2008 Romney was a favorite over McCain for some Freepers. Not you, I know, but many others were saying the same stuff you are saying now. Any body but McCain, and FUJM. I won't vote for a RINO. Not another dime to the RNC.

Conservatives showed there strength in primaries and McCain won the nomination. Many of these conservatives posted later in Aug that they were not going to vote for McCain but would for Palin. You were here. You know this.

McCain held the base and was leading at the polls after picking Palin as a running-mate. He might have won if not for the Housing market meltdown, 8 years of Bush, and excitement about a historic first black Prez.

Fast forward to 2012. Conservatives showed there strength again. SSDD. Sure some conservatives won't vote for Romney. The same ones who didn't vote for McCain or Bush. The GOP will never get their vote. We may not like Romney but a lot of the naysayers will come back when the nomination is certain instead of inevitable.

Romney could pick a VP who inspires the base like Palin. Jan Brewer wagging her finger in Obama's face comes to mind. Maybe Scott Walker if he loses his recall in June. But even if Romney doesn't pick a firebrand for VP he has Obama to excite the base.

Who can tell what unconstitutional or scandalous mistake Obama will make before Nov. Something will give cover to the Anybody But Mitt Romney crowd to justify the recognition of Obama as much more dangerous than Romney.

The GOP won back the house and a majority of governorships and state legislatures in 2010. We have had more control of redistricting and that will have lasting impact for the next 10 years.

This happened because of Obama backlash, not a new awaking of conservatism. We saw the strength of conservatism in the 2008 and 2012 primaries. Let us stop pretending that FR reflects a majority opinion. I am less certain that FR will be here in 2016 than the GOP.

The Freepathons last longer and are more frequent than PBS fundraisers. I don't have access to the statistics, but I know I stopped contributing to FR when FR stopped seeing rats as the enemy. And I post here a lot less because my opinion isn't appreciated. I have your "in forum" page bookmarked because I respect your opinion above most other Freepers, but your post today is not logical.

Have you have become one of the 5% conservatives?
I've been calling them out all Fall and Winter, saying, "Show me the votes come primary season". Now we know

No, he can't.

A pro-abortion socialist who has a track record of appointing liberal judges -- plus who believes he is a "god in embryo" and whose religion labels Christians "apostates" who belong to "the church of the devil" and labels 100% of our creeds doesn't inspire anyone -- and can't.

You are on some illusion trip...is that just 'cause ya want it so?

Conservatives shouldn’t give him unqualified support...

Enlighten us, oh enlightened one...for we didn't know that votes came in halves...

Here, the Dems in some areas multiply their votes (when the dead vote)...

Here, you pretend that the GoP divides their single votes in some sort of "qualified" vote-scheme nonsense.

Pathetic. (What will Romneybots compute next?)
