First time in 5 1/2 years: Half of all voters trust GOP on economy.
Rasmussen Reports ^

Posted on 05/31/2012 12:35:14 PM PDT by sunmars

For the first time in five-and-a-half years of regular tracking, half of voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats when it comes to the economy, the issue they rate by far as most important to how they will vote. Voters now trust Republicans more on six of the 10 major issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports, Democrats more on two, and they're tied on two.

The key phrase being "more than." Heck, I trust Republicans more than Democrats on the economy. But I would trust my year-old tabby cat more than both of them put together.

The horrible reality of how devastating Democrat rule really is has finally begun to sink in on the Sheeple.

Those of old enough to remember Carter KNEW what was coming, and tried to warn folks.

Unfortunately, it seems every generation has to learn, the hard way, to cut through all of the Media bulls**t.

“Unfortunately, it seems every generation has to learn, the hard way, to cut through all of the Media bulls**t”


Kinda like how the people who think its just fine to support a socialist running as a republican need to learn the hard way?

If the GOP is base enough to nominate a socialist out of the convention then they can damn sure expect nothing but contempt from me and others who used to support them.

I will NOT vote for Romney or any other socialist.
I will actively work against them at every opportunity.
I will do everything I can to see that the GOP fails at its attempt elect a socialist.

Why?

Because once the GOP elects a socialist like romney then the only party in opposition to socialism (even if only marginally) will be forced to support their new socialist agenda.

BUT..

What about the “rock ribbed” conservatives we are electing to the congress to “hold his feet to the fire”????

heh...

If all of them voted NO.. the socialists in the democrat party have more than enough members to “cross the isle” and vote yes in their place.

THATS WHY....

nope... not enough....

If every conservative in congress voted no... the socialists in the dem party would join the “moderate” (socialists) in the republican party to vote yes...

We are FAR better off with a united GOP in congress against a socialist in the OPPOSITE PARTY than we would be with a socialist in the SAME PARTY.

Because... Just like some of the jamokes on fr that are campaigning for romney on here, they will be unable to turn against a republican president... EVEN IF HES A DEMONSTRATED SOCIALIST.

How much is romney paying you to do this? Or are you donating your time in support of the socialist?

Also, its not really the mitt haters club so much as its the socialist haters club. but you dont really get that concept do you?

Mitt is not a socialist and you know it.

Hussein is a socialist and he gets a pass from you.

Simple logic tells me that your club, she is a genuine He-Man Mitt Haters Club.

In 5 1/2 years? That would be the end of 2006, when unemployment was 4.5%, and Americans replaced the GOP controlled Congress with a Democrat controlled Congress because they were disgusted with how bad things were under the GOP. I guess Americans are finally waking up.

So how did we fail to nominate a Conservative to run against Obama? Primary voting was so light that a solid turnout by Conservatives could have won it for one of our candidates. What a wasted opportunity!

I don’t trust either party. Frankly, can’t really tell there are any differences between the two these days.

Yea, yea. Goofballs like you turn up on every thread to tell us about how you're not voting for Mitt. We got it. Take your ball and go home, because frankly....all you have now is Mitt or Obama. If the difference between the two isn't clear......well, you're too damn stupid to waste typing time on.

Actually... We ARE home...

Its not that we are simply NOT voting for romney, we are also going to try and make sue he NEVER becomes president.

Yes, we understand that its romney (socialist) or Obama (socialist). We also understand that there isn’t a DIME worth a difference. No matter how much his paid lackeys say there is...

We also understand that people like YOU have put us in the F’ed up position where we are going to be better off if the republican (because hes a socialist) LOSES.

Lets hope that SOMEONE (well a few someones) delgates actually, have the wisdom to abstain from voting during the convention. We NEED to dump his sorry ass at teh convention.

ALSO, BTW, as much as you try to portray yourselves as the Bolsheviks (majority men), your numbers are FEW. We know it and you do too.

Wait and see. Obama might have negative coat tails, and Olympia Snow and Susan Collins might end up feeling very lonely. Not saying it will. But let’s wait and see.

No thanks. Id rather not “pass the bill” before i get to see whats in it.

Romney is a socialist. A significant percentage of the GOP in congress are either socialists themselves or “moderate” or just spineless little pussies. They WILL go along with a republican president on just about ANYTHING he wants to do. This IS precedent. It CAN be proven. With even THESE members congress.

Sorry, id rather take my chances with a GOP that will fight the socialist agenda even if most of them are doing so ONLY because its coming from the democrat party.

Suit yourself. All the Tea Partiers in Congress cannot prevent the damage that four more years of O as Head of State and Commander in Chief. I’ll settle for a Romney, who, while socialistic, is not malevolent at least, and a Congress that can at times dictate his agenda to him.

I don’t trust the Repubs anymore than I do the Dems with the economy. People who do are living in a fantasy world.
