Skip to comments.I Hope Mitt Romney Fails
Posted on 07/16/2012 12:23:12 PM PDT by donjuanluis07
After the election of Barack Obama in 2008, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves in January 2009 to announce his hope for the failure of Barack Obama's policies. He was very quick to make sure people understood he was not against Obama due to the color of his skin, but solely due to his policies.
In the same vein, I would like to announce a similar sentiment. I agree with Rush that Obama's polices should fail, and I hope they do. I also hope that the policies and philosophies of Mitt Romney fail as well.

Good one Jim Wayne.
More damage that he obviously will do in a second term ....
1) nominate two more sotomayerkagan's to SCOTUS;
2) use his veto pen to prevent the repeal of 0bamacare and other marxist policies he put in place;
3) see #1 and #2.
......after the election, only one of them will have Free Republic shut down and it isn't Romney.
I’ll wager this guy is one of them principled Ron Paul supporters you hear tell about.
Also on Twitter and Facebook. They are paid to mask as republicans and post anti-Romney articles. Not sure how they get the articles.
“However, O cannot do much more damage IF we keep the House and gain the Senate...”
Well, with O’s reelection we get a liberal supreme court for a generation that will approve of communism, and Obamacare will be implemented beyond repair.
And the ability to turn the tide on illegal immigration probably is at a turning point: we roll things back now, or never.
If we can’t turn the tide on immigration, we are going down a slippery slope like a wet mossy hill and we won’t be able to stop the slide as pandering to illegals will become required to get elected, and soon the electorate will be overwhelmingly redistributionist, and at that point it won’t be a matter of our candidate “is not conservative enough,” because we are going full communist, and the very property and $ that we own will be subject to redistribution.
Agreed. So after BO gets back in and tramples more of the Constitution can these ‘principled’ voters claim the mantle of victory? Not sure how when all they stand for would die right in front of them.
Dumb concept from the get go, just like the Palin prayer threads and the Ron Paul candidacy.
Talking to you people is like beating one's head against a stone wall.
There you go again with that "there was a time ...." You're probably right, but call me a cynical skeptic.
You’re a cynical skeptic.
Is he? I'll give you 50% of anything you can collect for me from anyone for my anti-Romney posts. Let me know how much you collect for us, or . . .
. . . start accepting the idea that there are a lot of conservatives who will not support or vote for Romney and who want him to lose in November.
I'm betting sooner.
>> . . . start accepting the idea that there are a lot of conservatives who will not support or vote for Romney and who want him to lose in November.
I’m also starting to warm up to the concept that not everyone who signs up in February 2012 and calls himself a conservative, IS a conservative.
He will make good court selections.
what evidence do you have to support this?
“To any that think there is no difference between Obama and Romney....
......after the election, only one of them will have Free Republic shut down and it isn’t Romney.”
HUGE! A lot of us think that we have the luxury to just play around like this is some game, but the demographics are changing, and if we don’t fight to maintain some semblance of a conservative electorate, the libs could like that gain control and with no hesitation they WILL shut down Rush, conservative bloggers like hotair and weaselzippers, and us.
Will the lib supreme court that O appoints uphold this? And wealth taxes to fully redistribute $ and property? Yes.
I AM amused.
Mitt Romney will only support DNC-approved Judge candidates.
Romney HATE Republicans as judges, avoids them
as if they were ... Gov. Sarah Palin.
I LOVE MITT ROMNEY and want him to install DEATH PANELS
for all ... except Moslems, of course, and Congressional
families and their staff. Because they are very special
just like Mitt Romney, our future Decider.
that was my point
Please, skeeter, just show me the money.
Like a lot of conservatives, I did vote for McCain in 2008. We had no choice, remember? The alternative was Obama and the end of all elections and free speech. And, do you remember how it was said that right after the election, conservatives could assert themselves and assure that McCain would be the last of the liberal nominees?
What did we get for holding our noses and voting for McCain? Mitt Romney. And, we deserve it exactly because we held our noses and voted for McCain. Rove and company figured if we would accept McCain, we would have to accept anyone.
Never again. I will never again vote for a liberal, period.
You can take that to the bank, along with all the money you’re going to collect for us.
Don’t go to pieces. Just accept that your man Romney is going to lose. He’s pathetic.
And another thing, just the rioting in the streets if O is defeated will make it worth it.
We can deal with Romney not being conservative enough later, First things first.
I’ve seen some lame retorts in my time here. But I’ve got to give you props; yours is “top ten” lame.
“Tom Hoefling for President - 2012”
Seriously, who is this? And how does voting for him save our Republic in any way? If he gets 1% and you pound your chest that you didn’t for vote for Romney and Obama wins, how does that help any of us here, including you? So you can say out loud you didn’t vote for Romney and then jump on here and tell us how bad Obama is?
This is a question, not a rant. I’m curious.
So, we are wrong.
And you aren't a FReeper, are you!
No sale, junior.
I'm done voting for liberals, period. I believe Tom is legitimate. I believe he means what he says. I can vote for Tom with pride.
If you like Romney and can vote for him with pride, then go for it. If supporting him makes you feel ashamed of yourself, then check out Tom as an alternative.
And, by all means, trust God. We're going to be all right.
More tiresome babble from the kook fringe.
Okay, Shakespeare, don’t waste any more time trying to convince me.
I’m not voting for your favorite liberal.
Obama was raised to despise the western form of government and way of life. Was Romney?
Obama was mentored by communists. Was Romney?
Obama allied himself politically with domestic leftwing terrorists and racial seperatist preachers. Has Romney?
As president Obama is determined to expand state power unilaterally, if needed, because he is a Marxist ideologue. Would Romney?
BTW you've been here long enough to be more careful who you make friends with.
I can’t help you, skeeter. If you like Romney, vote for him.
I already have a candidate.
I did my part and didn’t vote for Romney in the primaries.
I will now VOTE for Romney.
Obama has to go.
I don’t like Romney at all, but the prospect of another four years of Obama will make me vote for him.
Are my principles compromised by doing so? Of course. Do I know already that my principles are being killed by BO? Yes.
This isn’t a vote between a liberal and a communist or a RINO and a socialist. It’s for a Republic over a tyrant.
If you feel you can sleep better voting for a guy why has no chance so that as Rome v 2.0 takes place you can yell you didn’t vote for Romney with a spear in your chest, then it is what it is.
God doesn’t care much about politics, so if you are hoping he will save you from bad policies and tyranny, you’ll be forever waiting. That’s the fall out of granting man Free Will. We are free to doom ourselves, God will not stop that.
But I can appreciate your honesty, so best of luck to you and Tom I guess.
Yeah, it is amazing in a way. Some folks just have not yet got it through their heads that there are a lot of us who will not just jump on their train this year. How could we reject Mitt Romney? He's been given the Karl Rove Seal of Approval - what's not to like?
As time goes on, it will become more clear to them that they are asking too much from too many people this time. It is not likely that Romney will be able to expand his liberal base widely enough to make up for the loss of conservative support.
Maybe they'll listen to us next time, who knows?
In nearly six months of posts NOTHING but anti-Romney stuff. I mean NOTHING. I reviewed the whole posting record and I encourage you and others to do the same.
And typically the most superflous and scurrilous of the DNC talking points (lied about his tenure at Bain Capital, Stericycle, dog in a cage on the car, that sort of crap.)
NOT ONE SINGLE pro-conservative, anti-liberal or anti-Obama opinion voiced. Zero. Zip, Zilch. Nada.
Even Diogenesis, for all his high-volume colorful graphical romneyhating occasionally, although very rarely, makes an anti-liberal or pro-conservative post.
My inescapable conclusion: Tau Food is a troll. Paid or not, who cares. Still a troll.
advisors??? gotta come up better with that. I can tell Obama to quit. and I can tell Romney to be a conservative.. Neither have to do what I say..
I counter with this..
Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans, has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.
Look.. I am going to vote for the guy. But I am smart enough to know he is only slightly to the right of Obama.. I am not happy about it but that is the choice it boils down to. Obama will never kill Obamacare. Romney might. It’s a weak nail to hang my had on. but it’s all we have right now.
Maybe you should put a little time in around here and get to know some of us before saying such foolish things.
Relax, Nervous, don't get yourself so excited.
Congratulations on an honest post. Too many ABOs won't admit what they are voting for. Romney will not get my vote because I'm accountable to God for my vote and I won't vote for an abortionist. I'm admitting that freely.
God doesnt care much about politics
Sure He does. Read Isaiah 28:14-16.
Like I said, some Freepers need to be more careful who they hang out with.
Agreed. It's all we have; to hope that Flipper will flip once more and govern as he has campaigned that he will.
OK, skeeter, I'll do my best to get to know you better. We're going to do just fine together. ;-)
Obama, with the most radical views on abortion possible, has not changed his position. We do know he's still radically pro abortion.
One or the other will be president come January. There will be no other outcome.
