F ORomney would have run a campaign of ideas and what makes him different than Gingrich, Santorum or Paul then if at the point where he gets the Republican nomination I would have gotten behind him (baggage and all.)

However, he slashed and burned his way to the nomination and did nothing but tarnish the Republican party and the conservative cause in the process.

I can not and will not in good faith get behind a man that is willing to destroy everything that our party stands for just to win a primary. Period, end of story.

Well said! And Ditto.

Rush will never do that. He is too far into the GOP fold.

Tomorrow he will come on the radio and say we have to have to change the Republican party within.

Sorry Rush that does not work. Think the establishment is doing this on purpose. Actions speak louder than words.

Thanks again, Jim.

I'm still painting and can't monitor things as closely as needs done the rest of the night.

Thanks !

I will write in Chuck Norris if they offer me up Obammy and Mittens.

I like the way you think! :-)

I would have LOVED to have Chuck Norris run for office!

The feeling bad will be listening to the talking heads gushing over Romney. A pox on them.

Don't hold your breath. Rush is about making money first and he doesn't want to rock the boat too hard because he may piss off the Oromney voters out there and that would lead to negative ratings.

Boy I am not sure...

I have been listening to him for years and I can think of three times when he came ever so close to noting who he would vote for or what he thought of the establishment. Some of these revelations are post him 12 stepping...

* In 96' he said "I really like Steve Forbes"...
* When the GOP got their asses handed to them in 06' he said "I am not carrying their water anymore".
* He has said to the effect he'd vote for her tommorrow ( Sarah a couple of years ago) as she was the only one in the GOP with B@!!s, so to speak.

I think he knows his job is to watch it happen not make it happen.

This is going to be the election that makes Rush less relevant to Conservatives. It is the election that is going to knock the legs out from under the GOP-e because Conservative who are tired of them running moderates that lose & putting Party above country are going to stampede for the door. There will be 4 more years of Obama to get a viable 3rd party up and running and by that time, folks will be well and truly P.O.’d, hopefully enough to fight to get the country back .... if there’s enough left of the country to salvage at that point.

"A Romney/Santorum ticket is not going to win. No way."

Yes it will.

It will win for Obama because he can beat Romney like he did McCain.They are indential except for skin pigmentation.

Romney won't fight 1/10th as hard in the general as he is against Newt, because it will be made to be "racist", and Romney WILL wilt under THAT attack.

It will win for Rove and the GOP-E because they would have killed the Tea Party and conservatives by fooling them into giving Rick a VP slot, and crash and burning him and Romney so Rove and "the boys" can run Jeb almost unmolested by the Tea Party and conservatives in 2016.

If all goes according to the establishment’s plan ... we’ll have two years to mobilize and get a third party up and running for the 2014 elections.

Methinks we’ll have more grassroots support than even in 2010!

Good for you! I think a lot of people were just waiting for a nudge because the truth is that Mittens’ ugly campaign has actually made a number of what I think of as “apolitical” types think twice about him. He may have gone a little too far. We shall see.

It’s hilarious how even republicans still want their cake and want to eat it too, even after 16 trillion in debt.

Obama vs. Romney is further proof this country will be dragged kicking and screaming before it fixes itself. Civil unrest, violence in the streets and massive economic depression here we come.

I feel the same way. I never liked him, and I knew I could never vote for him based on his policies. But now I’ve seen firsthand how vile and detestable he is. Like Mark Levin said last night, there’s a reason people who know this guy hate him.

You are correct. But there's another reason too.

How does a gun-grabbing, pro-abortion, pro-homosexualist, statism-loving socialist (Romney) effectively attack a gun-grabbing, pro-abortion, pro-homosexualist, statism-loving socialist (Obama)?

On the issues, it can't be done.

It would be as absurd as attacking one's reflection in a mirror.

Maybe that's a good thing. I think JR is a lot more relevant!

One of the problems with Rush is that once he got successful, he quit working. He then relied on being funny, provocative...an entertainer. There's nothing wrong with that, but people shouldn't look to them to say anything really important or meaningful.

The big problem, however, is that with their reach, they can say some stupid thing off the top of their heads and suddenly it becomes gospel. And that's what happened with Rush when he destroyed Gingrich by saying that questioning Romney's deceptive portrayal of his business practices was "anti-capitalistic."

Don’t know why- spends more money I guess. Does seem like they delayed some results in the Wisc. recall races...

http://www.cbsnews.com/primary-election-results-2012/state.shtml?state=FL
has a link to the county results too.

Up until 2 weeks ago, I would have voted for Romney if he was the GOP candidate because Obama has to go. Now .... not doing it and that is saying a lot because I don’t think we’ll have much of a country left if Obama gets 4 more. At some point, the line has to be drawn in the sand and now is the time.
