Santorum, however, noted that Romney has vowed to repeal Obama's health care law.
He said voting for Romney over Obama is a "clear choice for me."

Hope sensible conservatives will follow his example.
Thank you Rick Santorum.
It should be noted - and kept in mind at ALL times - that not only has RomneyCare not worked in Massachusetts, it has both run over budget by massive amounts and has driven doctors out of practice who refused to be controlled and overseen by The State.
If Obunga is re-elected, we're looking at a new dark age, i.e. one of those periods of two or three or four centuries for which no archaeological evidence exists, at the end of which if any humans are left at all, they're crawling out of caves and trying to reconstruct how to make fire.
Not one single conservative thing mentioned because there is none to be had
For so called conservatives to abandon the tenants of conservatism and embrace a proven liberal out of fear is why we are screwed.
I will hold the line regardless of consequence.
I'd rather go down swinging than be a hypocrite and a coward.
After 44 years of voting GOP only for POTUS, I have voted GOP after having been betrayed for the last time. Any old babykilling, religion persecuting, faggot coddling, gun grabbing, serial lying POS with an R after his name will no longer do.
The USA is a LOT more resilient than you imagine and voting out of fear is unacceptable.
RESIST!!! no matter which major party nominee wins in November. They are two of a kind. Vote for Tom Hoefling in what poses as a POTUS election this year. Live to fight another day.
Let's hope there are enough sensible conservatives. I still see a number trying to destroy Romney for the "principle" of it. I guess idiots will be idiots, else we wouldn't be in this mess. I for one went from "won't vote Romney" to "will grudgingly vote Romney to oust Obama" to "can't wait for November to vote for Romney".
Destroy Romney? What a conceded thought typical
god of his own planet.
Romney THREW Election 2008 to Obama by attacking
Gov. Palin and her children through surrogates.
Why did Romney NOT stop his Legions
from attacking a conservative GOP VP candidate?
BECAUSE HE IS BACKSTABBER BISHOP ROMNEY.
Consequences are the ONLY thing that matter. The consequences of the actions you advocate have only one result: an Obama second term, which will result in the total destruction of the US and our freedoms.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
All right, who among you us using up all the old daffy trolls?
Once Obama gives 60 plus % of the nation freebies at the expense of the minority there will be no going back, even if 100% of the minority are card carrying Teabag Party members.
The Palmetto Scoop doesn’t even exist anymore, hardly a reliable source, but you’ll take anything that advances your pro-Obama agenda, trying to sow division among conservatives to keep them from supporting Romney, to defeat Obama.
“I for one went from “won’t vote Romney” to “will grudgingly vote Romney to oust Obama” to “can’t wait for November to vote for Romney.”
Me, too. Desperate times call for desperate measures. We have to survive to elect any true conservatives as a nation. Not sure there will be anything left of the country to salvage if the Zero gets in for 4 more years.
“Any old babykilling, religion persecuting, faggot coddling, gun grabbing, serial lying POS with an R after his name will no longer do. “
But you will gladly give on with a “D” after his name another term instead. Brilliant! (Not to mention that you are not telling the truth about Romney)
Brought to you by the same people who savagely attacked anyone who stood in the way of Mitt St Jesus. in the primary.
Bottom feeding scumbag Romney can kiss my ass. Ya’ll can lube up for him if you want but don’t expect me to share the “credit” when it comes due.
“Not sure there will be anything left of the country to salvage if the Zero gets in for 4 more years.”
You are both thinking people and came to the only sensible conclusion possible.
See post 10.
I think you need a bib.
They know how bad he is but can’t bear the fact some of us aren’t willing to share the blame and will be here to remind them every time Romney runs leftward.
Those refusing to see the truth for what it is will help the Zero get in for 4 more years. I’m not voting for Romney because he’s a conservative, and I couldn’t care less what anyone on FreeRepublic says post-election about him, his actions, etc... because if he leans left no one here will be very surprised - and I’ll likely agree with them. After all, he’s not my personal hero nor would he have been my pick had there been a real choice. (My state went for Santorum in the primary.) They only fool themselves if they think there’s going to be a “gotcha” moment here or anywhere else post-Romney election.
Those who refuse to vote for him will be responsible in large for the Zero getting in for 4 more — and there likely won’t be a Free Republic after that. (And I personally would rather have voting for Romney on my conscience than helping the Zero completely destroy what’s left of this country to the point of no return.)(Those who disagree can mock all they like, but history never shows dictators and tyrants to be tolerant of dissent in any form. They ignore history at their peril.)
The truth is Romney can’t win. Best thing you can do with that sort of loser given what is at stake is to dump him ~
Your boy is a loser.
End justifies the means...blah blah blah.
Hmmm... where have I heard that one before?
I will hold the line.
If the earth is scorched so be it.
I will blame those who abandoned conservatism and embraced a proven liberal out of fear and lack of resolve.
Good luck with that.
It just won't work.
You know, some of you guys were so hateful toward Sarah Palin back in 2008 I'd almost suspect you of having been the Mittbots who tried to turn down her church.
Little did those ol'boys know that Protestants move from church to church with an ease that defies the imagination of those who attend highly structured and legalistic churches where they tell you where to stand, where to sit, and what building to do that in ~ unless you have a high ranking church official's approval.
Vote Obama, get Obama.
Vote Romney, get Romney.
Throw a hissy fit because the Republican Primary Voters went for the guy that Conservatives didn't support, get Obama. Wow, there really is a third choice after all.
ROMNEY CHEATED. In Iowa. In N Carolina.
In NH. In Florida.
Romney is a stinking cheat and not a CONSERVATIVE.
HE CANNOT WIN.
Are you speaking of other FReepers? I have been following this for months and I don't recall anyone here promoting Romney over the Conservative Republicans that were running in the Primaries. Nobody here Voted for Romney in the Primary Election as far as I know, so where do you get this?
Now that the Primaries are over and there are only two choices left in the General Election, I only see people here accepting the Reality of what's ahead.
Please clarify exactly who you are talking about.
Where are the true Patriots like the Founding Fathers, Nathan Hale, Paul Revere, George Washington, Tom Jefferson, The Adams?
Sure not the ones voting for the RINO, because of ABO Syndrome!
Santorum is a fool to believe Romney
Come on the economic fiasco is what did McCain in
He and Palin were ahead in the polls till then although I wouldn’t put it past Romney to back stab so he could run in 2012 —Just look at the lying ads he used to defeat Newt
I can see it now....If after 8 years of Romney we even have a good ole USA, The Republican Voters have nominated Bloomberg as our 2020 Republican Candidate for President of the United States and you guys will be eating it up and throwing yourselves at him full bore.....It is stunning how you guys are slobbering over Romney like he is some sort of idol of yours. Good Grief he is a horrible candidate who is pretty darn liberal. We seem to be upset with John Roberts who seemed pretty conservative and people praised him up and down and one bad vote latter he is a loser to some here. What on Earth do you believe the reality of Romney is going to be?????? That is the question that really should be asked. IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO KICK ROMNEY TO THE CURB. WE HAVE NOT HAD THE CONVENTION YET. DO IT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I should add and the complete failure of the MSM to cover Obama’s real background while covering every lie about Palin
Problem is if Obama wins there is no way we take the senate
Voters aren’t going to split their tickets that way
I guess you claim that Santorum, Palin, Newt and all prominent conservatives are wrong and don’t know what they are talking about, when they are allspeaking out against giving Obama a second term and supporting Romney.
Palin: ‘ObamaCare’ a harbinger of things to come, if Obama is re-elected, you will no longer recognize the country you love.
“PALIN: Well, if Governor Romney is elected president — and let’s hope that the GOP does take over the White House and can secure the Senate and holds onto the House — then obviously, first on the list of priorities must be repealing and replacing “ObamaCare” with something that makes more sense.
Now, if Obama is reelected, well, we will be a fundamentally transformed country, as Obama promised us when he was a candidate, that he was hell-bent on doing to us. We’re heading down that road now. This “ObamaCare” mandate, this decision that was made today — heck, Obama even proposing it and ramming it through and down our throats through Pelosi and Reid’s embracing of it — that’s a harbinger of things to come.
So if Obama is reelected, well, America, you will no longer recognize the country that today you truly love and can enjoy all of its freedom and prosperity and security if Obama is reelected because this “ObamaCare” is a harbinger of things yet to come.”
Voters split their tickets other ways ~ NO VOTES FOR LEFTWINGTARDS, ONE VOTE FOR A CONSERVATIVE SENATOR
There’s no significant difference between the two leftwingtard candidates. They’d probably end up appointing the same judges.
Obama sympathizers Diogenisis and Cripplecreek have be stireed into action again and trashed this thread!
