We will not waste our limited resources on FR in support for a liberal progressive LIAR
Click here to pledge your support! ^ | April 12, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 04/13/2012 12:13:14 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

A reminder for those who are not receiving the message:

Romney is a pathological compulsive liar. Lie after lie papered over with more lies. Doesn’t even flinch when caught in bald faced lies, simply tells another big whopper to cover up or dodge the issue. Funny thing, the man actually seems to believe his own latest lies and simply ignores the glaring record of his past actions/lies. And you have true blue establishment elite RINO Republicans like Karl Rove enabling and backing up his lies. Their motivation is simply to hang on to power (and riches) any way they can.

I’ve stated many times since Romney started running for the presidency way back when that I’d never vote for him and I will not. He cannot lie his way out of his decades long record of support for abortion, Roe v Wade, planned parenthood, gay rights, gun control, global warming, amnesty, liberal judges, big government, compulsory or socialized health care (RomneyCommieCare), mandates, Keynesian economics, support and approval of TARP, bailouts, stimulus packages, i.e, every damn liberal progressive issue that comes down the pike.

C’mon. These are the reasons the tea party sprang up and the reasons he and Rove loathe the tea party and our tea party conservative candidates. Romney famously expressed his loathing for Reagan-Bush conservatism several years ago when he was trying to run to the left of Ted Kennedy and now he’s cloaking himself in Reagan conservatism, knowing full well that it’s a lie, but he knows it’s the only way he can possibly win, er buy the Republican nomination.

Screw Romney!! I absolutely will not support or vote for a proven compulsive liar with a known record of abortion and big government socialism, liberal appointments, etc. He still lies about RomneyCommieCare today. Calls it a “conservative solution.” Get real!!

Listen to what Ronald Reagan had to say about the elites pushing socialism on America via compulsory health insurance:

Ronald Reagan speaks out against RomneyCommieCare

There will be no campaign for this Massachusetts liberal liar on FR!!

Damn the libs and RINOS, full steam ahead!!

But no matter what happens we must turn out in November to vote IN as many conservatives and vote OUT as many rats as possible at all levels of government. If we don't have a conservative at the top of the ticket we must turn out anyway and vote straight conservative DOWN ticket!! Just think of it an off cycle election and pour on the TEA!! It'll be doubly important that we control both houses of congress and as many statehouses as possible.

Restore the 10th amendment!! Impeach the leftist president whoever he may be!! Restore Liberty!! Rebellion comes from the bottom up!!

WOO HOO!! I CAN SEE NOVEMBER FROM MY HOUSE!!

No Bama!! No Romney!! Go tea party rebellion!!

Why do you keep pushing the GOP-e lies? I find it highly offensive!!

Jim, I am honestly not following what is going on here on FR over the last couple of days.

I said that the people are the ones voting for the GOP nominee and you reply that I am pushing GOP-e lies and that it is highly offensive.

What the heck?

We have the nominating process we have and (of course) it is imperfect and also (of course) the well-connected GOP players, call them "the GOP elite", have an outsized influence on the rules and the results. This is true every cycle no more or less than this year.

This cycle we had the candidates we had, and one after another they have all fallen by the wayside until now it looks like, barring a miracle, we have Romney as GOP nominee. There are six or seven people that officially declared as GOP candidates who I would choose over Romney but the simple fact is other voters in the various GOP primaries made a different choice than I would have.

I worked for Cain and then Newt but both lost. Things weren't entirely fair and above-board but the truth is both men were deeply flawed as candidates. Cain dropped out on his own accord and Newt has come in third or fourth again and again. Many more voters chose Romney than chose Newt.

Where are the "GOP-e lies" in any of this?

As a friend I am honor bound to tell you that it seems to me like you are letting your strong antipathy for Romney (which I have not refuted in any way; everything you fault him for I fault him for as well) cause you to say things that just don't make sense to some others who are genuine conservatives and have been here for a long time.

Romney vs. Obama is a terrible choice to have before us, and it is critical to ask ourselves how we got here and how we might do things better in the future. But you're saying that anyone who thinks it possible that some decent conservatives voted for Romney in the primaries, or that some decent conservatives might vote for Romney in November, is a liar. You are thereby creating a narrow and esoteric definition of "FReeper in good standing" that does not include many people who have been here for a long time, including me.

People have been trying to tell you this while avoiding the zot for days now, and it seems the situation is getting worse not better. Now might be a good time for you to take a deep breath and ask yourself what you want your amazing creation, FreeRepublic, to look like in January 2013 when we inaugurate our next President who will almost certainly be either Romney or Obama.

One vote doesn't matter much but I'd hate to look back from total societal collapse and have to say I didn't vote against it.

You are in luck because it will collapse with either of them, but Romney won't win.

You actually believe we would be better off voting in as many conservatives as possible and having Obama in office than if we voted in as many conservatives as possible and had Romney?

Are you so devoid of logic that you don't understand that a Republican Congress will be lulled to sleep by a president wearing their team jersey?

Do you not understand that it's better to have an avowed enemy in front of you, than an abject traitor to your cause, who only pretends to support your beliefs?

You assume that you're making a pragmatic choice, when in fact, you're only choosing which Socialist liberal is more palatable to you. The right choice in this situation, is to continue to fight back, no matter what it takes, or the eventual outcome.

If you are conservative and a Tea Party he does NOT want your vote! And if he gets it he will say you are a moderate after he wins.

To paraphrase Aldo the Apache, the one thing I cannot abide is bullcrap about Obama not being so bad, or frankly anyone being particularly worse than Obama.

Obama is an out and out divisive leftist who holds positions contrary to ours on everything, and who in a second term plans to further disarm this country and bring us into a full blown socialist nightmare.

Don’t be so sure that if Obama wins at the top, he won’t pull in a Congress and statehouses and governors behind him.

FR can hate Romney all it wants, but that Obama is “better” or “not so bad” in any way shape or form, that I cannot abide and no one who praises or favors Obama is a conservative.

Please, we are going to rant about Romneycare in one left wing stupid ass state (which is what Mass. is) but we are going so far as to say the actual enactor of nationwide Obamacare which is facing us all down, is not so bad????

If Romney is everything evil, then Barack Obama is out and out everything evil squared.

but he’s done a huge number of liberal things solely for political gain in past 3+ years

If the health care fraud is overturned by the Supremes, the only real accomplishment of Obama's is a boatload of debt.

Nearly everything else can be set aside with an executive order.

Political Scientist: Republicans Most Conservative They've Been In 100 Years
by Frank James
Apr 13, 2012 — Keith Poole of the University of Georgia, with collaborator Howard Rosenthal of New York University, has spent decades charting the partisan ideological shifts and polarization in Congress from the 18th Century until now to get the view of how the political landscape has changed from 30,000 feet up. What they have found is that the Republican Party is the most conservative it has been a century.
Comments | ShareThis
When President Obama recently complained to news media executives about their ostensibly even-handed “pox on both of your houses” coverage of the partisan battles in Washington, it might have seemed like, well, a partisan shot from a Democratic president.

After all, his complaint was that the GOP had moved so far right, and intransigently so, that it was wrong to create a false “equivalence” by blaming both parties equally for the Washington gridlock. To a skeptic that comment, coming from a Democrat, sounded suspiciously partisan itself.

But while the president was making the kind of argument you would expect of the nation's top Democrat, he actually had the support of science — well at least political science research that maps that rightward GOP shift.

Keith Poole of the University of Georgia, with his collaborator Howard Rosenthal of New York University, has spent decades charting the ideological shifts and polarization of the political parties in Congress from the 18th century until now to get the view of how the political landscape has changed from 30,000 feet up. What they have found is that the Republican Party is the most conservative it has been a century.

In a recent conversation Poole, who's viewed by other political scientists as the go-to expert on this issue, explained that the data are very clear:

“This is an entirely objective statistical procedure. The graphs just reflect what comes out of the computer. Howard Rosenthal and I, we've been working on something called Nominate. This does all the Congresses simultaneously, which allows you to study change over time.

“The short version would be since the late 1970s starting with the 1976 election in the House the Republican caucus has steadily moved to the right ever since. It's been a little more uneven in the Senate. The Senate caucuses have also moved to the right. Republicans are now furtherest to the right that they've been in 100 years.

Of course some, and not just conservative activists, will be quick to point out that Democrats also have their take-no-prisoner liberals who aren't prone to compromise on their core issues, either.

Karlyn Bowman, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institution who studies public opinion, is definitely of the pox-on-both-house camp:

“Clearly, I think both parties have moved to the extremes since I've been watching politics. I don't think there's any doubt about that. The Democratic Party has been pulled to the left and the Republican Party has been pulled to the right. Part of that is redistricting.”

Poole acknowledges that Democrats have contributed their share to the polarization of the political process, especially, he says, through their use of identity politics, appeals to race, ethnicity and gender.

Democrats have also contributed by losing House and Senate seats in the South where moderate Democrats have been replaced by Republicans. Meanwhile, moderate Republicans have continued to depart the scene, with Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine being just the latest.

Buttressing a point that Obama has sometimes made, this loss of moderates and further rightward movement by congressional Republicans would have been a challenge to navigate for even the biggest conservative hero of modern times, President Ronald Reagan. Poole said:

“Ronald Reagan was so successful because he made all these deals with these huge blocks of moderate legislators. That's why he had overwhelming majorities for the 81 tax cut, the 82 tax increase, where they had to go back and adjust the tax bill in 82 and the Social Security fix in 83. Then in 86 you had Simpson Mazzoli, which included amnesty and tax simplification. All that stuff passed with very large majorities. You cannot imagine anything like that happening now. Which is why the country is really in the tank.

“There's a lot of blame to go around. It doesn't look like there's any resolution of this anytime soon.”

That said, Poole says the data are hard to deny; the polarization is largely due to how far and relatively quickly Republicans have shifted to the right end of the ideological spectrum. And he faults leaders of both parties for allowing the nation to get into a fiscal morass in which government spending on health care is unsustainable:

“It is true that the Republicans have moved further to the right than the Democrats have moved to the left. That's absolutely true.

“On the other hand, there doesn't seem to be much impetus on the part of the leadership of either political party to really do something serious about our budget crisis. I doubt very seriously we'll see much improvement.

“People forget how utterly irresponsible our political leadership has been for the last 30 years. ... The current political class of the U.S. just isn't in the same league as Truman and Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson. You just don't have that kind of leadership now, just when we need it.

This isn't meant as a knock on Obama, Poole said. But he's not very optimistic about what an Obama second term would bring:

“The likely outcome of the election is that it's a very close victory by President Obama, the Republicans hold the House and may come within an eyelash of taking the Senate. I could see a 50-50 Senate. So good luck. After $2 billion gets spent on federal elections at all levels, how bitter will the atmosphere will be in January 2013? We're really up the creek.”

Source: NPR

From Eisenhower to the near present much of the party base would go along with a ‘moderate centrist’ candidate to slow the spread of collectivism by keeping the White House out of Dem hands. None of the GOP candidates elected had any expectation or desire to make government smaller other than Reagan. He didn't have the votes in Congress to do it. The GOP was not nearly as conservative as it is today. The professional hacks still think the party looks like it did in 1960 or 68. Heavily conservative but with a strong ‘moderate’ presence. The ‘moderates’ also tended to be the people with more elite pretensions and money and were conservative only on tax policy. That has changed in the last 8/10 years. The majority of Repus hate government and want it smaller now and probably half are also social conservatives. A group the party hacks cannot believe exist in such numbers and will not view with anything but hatred. If Romney wins or loses this condition will not change. If he wins the big story the LMS will lie about is the internal war to control the administration and the party ‘regulars’. If he loses the big story will be the blood purge at many state levels directed at the party ‘establishment’. Either way the long war for the GOP will continue. But the conservatives are gradually prevailing. A story no one has reported other than this of all things NPR report.

Which would have been worse:
1) President McCain and Vice President Palin
OR President Obama and Vice President Biden

Which would be worse?
1) President Romney and VP (whomever)
OR 4 more years of The One and Clueless Joe.

That's easy. Marcus Tullius Cicero figure that out in 58 BC.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague."

We have a traitor in the WH from the opposition party. Now you want to vote in a traitor from (and to) the Republican Party.

I understand and respect your position regarding Romney, and that FR will not be a vehicle to support his candidacy. I get it... but I have a question.

First, let me preface it by clarifying, I do not like Romney and wish to God that he was not going to be the GOP nominee. I supported Perry at first. After he was out it was between Newt and Santorum. Now Santorum’s out... so you can guess where my support goes. But here’s my question:

If it is between Romney and Obama, which one would you prefer in the office? Romney is no social conservative, but he is a workout specialist; at least he has the financial background that may help right the financial ship of state. Obama, well, we know what he will do.

Are you calling for a third party? It’s a little late in the game for that. The only third party candiate who can even get heard would have to be a billionaire who is willing to spend his own cash ala Perot... so Trump? He’s no better than Romney and has an ego that makes Newt look like a shy, modest kid. Palin won’t do it, and even if she would, she would far no better that 20%, with all of it coming at Romney’s expense, thus guarantying Obama a second term to finish “fundamentally changing” America into something unrecognizable.

So what do you want to happen? Please note, I realize that this is your site and you have the authority to kick me out. I am not trying to be a smart ass and mean no disrespect to you or FR. I just don’t understand what you are calling for in this case.

Romney is not a conservative or even a moderate, he is a liberal who never tells the truth.

He has stated that he would like to moderate the GOP and he will have that chance if he becomes President. He will turn the GOP into a clone of the Democrat Party. The Republican Party led by Romney will be lost for good, for all time. He will work against conservatives within the party nationally.

Obama won’t be able to do that. At least the Republican will still fight against Obama.

The Romney-Bloomberg Party is not something I’d like to see because it will be very very hard to raise up another political party.

Regretfully, I have to say you may have to find a new home on the net. I am not going to be like the blacks who are kept on a government plantation by the democrats but continue voting for them election after election even though it’s never in their best interest. Socialism is the enemy of freedom. I am a pro-life, pro-liberty conservative and I absolutely will never vote for or support the GOP-e anointed, endorsed, backed, funded, foisted and delivered abortionist/homosexualist/socialist Romney whose record is 100% opposite of my values and the founding principles of this great nation, even if he does become the “R” nominee. No thank you. I will not vote for evil liars.

I had not heard that, so thank you for the link. I am really surprised that Levin hasn’t covered it. I’ll go over there and check it out.

KYPD and in the meantime, pray.

Romney as Governor appointed leftists to the bench. Yes, LEFTISTS.

He has a record on the issue. Stop ignoring it.

Thanks for the backbone! I forgot what one looked like...

You're not going to find one in Romney or his RINO buddies!

If the choice is being bitten by a copperhead or being bitten by a cobra, I will take the copperhead everytime....If Obama wins, there will be NO Conservatism because he WILL turn America into a Banana Republic...

Another Romney Republican bumper sticker!

Romney is the GOP elites answer to the TEA party movement of 2010. They got nervous over the uprising. This election is designed to put us in our place.

They think they can get him elected without our help and forever relegate us to the ash heap of history.

By voting for Romney, you are playing right into their hands.

You are exactly right! I can hear Karl Rove now if Romney were to win by some miracle "The GOP won and they did it without the Tea Party".

Hi Jim and All,
I have been anti-Romney from day one in 2007. I am still anti-Romney, and feel that I cannot vote for that liberal flip-floppin phony no matter what.

Question: If Romney somehow buys the nom, BUT puts in place, say, Colonel West as VP (or insert choice here).......would any of you consider voting for Romney then? I still don't think I would......BUT a strong conservative as VP may just make me reconsider.

...Just asking.........

Anyone going to the NRA convention, please copy and distribute.

Good grief!

My key issues are abortion and homosexuality, so I didn’t know this. Why is this man in the Republican Party?

“Do you wish to be killed with blue bullets or with pink bullets?”

My analogy is similar:

"We are the government and we intend on enslaving you"

Do you wish to be enslaved by a master with a harsh lash or a master with a softer lash?

I choose to be free.

I supported Santorum. Romney is better than Obama. Unemployment went down while he was governor.

The professional hacks still think the party looks like it did in 1960 or 68. Heavily conservative but with a strong ‘moderate’ presence.

Maybe they think the country looks different -- heavily "moderate" but with a strong conservative presence.

The ‘moderates’ also tended to be the people with more elite pretensions and money and were conservative only on tax policy. That has changed in the last 8/10 years.

Maybe not changed in the way you think. "Moderate" thirty years ago meant pro-abortion. Today, Republicans who get tagged with the "moderate" label are a lot less likely to have those views. It's not just some old WASP country club elite any more.

The majority of Repus hate government and want it smaller now and probably half are also social conservatives.

It's fashionable to talk that way because Republicans are out of power. But do you really "hate" government? All experience suggests that when Republicans get the White House back, a lot of that "hate government" talk will dissipate.

A group the party hacks cannot believe exist in such numbers and will not view with anything but hatred.

Projection? These are voters the "party hacks" need. There's disagreement, but not much hatred.
