Posted on 04/18/2012 5:02:41 AM PDT by Haiku Guy
One chunk of the Republican electorate has proved an incredibly fickle voting bloc, denying party unity while the nominating process dragged on. Its the same group of conservative voters that went from candidate to candidate, looking for an alternative to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Now, out of options, it seems that those who identify themselves as tea party supporters are finally coming home to the presumptive nominee.

You want to talk about damage? Think of Obama unchained.
BULLS***! The "Tea Party" warms to Romney the same way it warms to the Bubonic Plague. When will you romneyites get it through your thick heads Conservatives do not 'like' or 'warm up to' liberals. Romney is a liberal and he cannot beat obomba.
Absolutely right. Its one or the other...point blank period!
Hey, somebody's got to procure the hookers!
You are undedrestimating the anti-obama sentiment out there.
Dayum right its too soon. The way those who claim to be conservative have given in to the GOPe is sickening. Newt is still in the race and is far better than Romney. This give in and give up attitude is why America is in the condition its in today. Instead of standing and fighting the weak fall in line. Shame, shame shame.
There is a nominee (some folks are just a little slower than others to recognize this)
There are plenty of ABO people in the TEA Party. Not enough of them, though.
FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!
Yep...the only way Obama gets back into office is if conservatives decide to take their vote and stay home. No matter how much you hate Romney he is the one left standing and only an idiot would stay home and allow zero back into office.
If that's the case, then why bother convincing the "fringe" conservative element here at FR. Sounds like Romney has this wrapped up and needs to start measuring the drapes.
No. We still have a choice and Obomney isn't one of them. And should obomney be the nominee we still have a choice. We can still choose to not vote for obomney and still vote for all those good conservatives running for the House and Senate. America doesn't want your communist crap or dictators running our nation.
You obomney shills are so narrow-minded and predictable.
There are probably more freepers than you know who will happily vote for Romney. Some have been tombstoned and others are afraid that they will be if they say anything. Sad. I certainly like him more than I did McCain and I did vote for McCain. Actually, I voted for Sarah for VP.
Not even Newt believes he has a chance. He is just going through the motions. If Newt was fighting, I would say "fight". But Newt has given up.
Your right. What you’ll be drinking is 4 years of an Obozo without a need to campaign for a next term. You will be drinking (for sure) 2 liberal activist Supreme Court appointees ...
Why are you shilling for romney when the forum owner has made it explicitly clear that his resources on this forum are not to be used to support the campaign of the liberal liar and worthless piece of crap romney? Are you really this arrogant? How inconsiderate of you. Shame on you.
Second that. I don't like Romney but he is better than the alternative. I think he will actually be good for the economy and if we can take the senate back and extend our majority in the house it is unlikely that our pet issues will suffer much while he is in office. We may not make much forward progress, but at least we should have a country left to build.
zero will take us down with another term...we can't afford to let him win this election.
You can thank the GOP-e for that reality. THEY chose (along with Obama) to run Romney as the nominee and sabotage and cut asunder every conservative in the race. THEY intended Obama to have another 4 years by running Romney. I REFUSE responsibility for what the Ruling Class chose for all you dupes to be suckered into choosing to give you the illusion of choice.
( ) Barack Obama
( ) Mitt Romney
I will not vote if that is my choice. If someone puts a gun to my head and forces me, I’ll vote for obama.
Romney would do as much damage to the conservative movement and the country as Obama has done to the liberal movement and the democrats. Not interested. Better the devil I know.
The anti-Obama sentiment won't overcome the lack of enthusiam for Romney. He's getting killed in polls here in VA, a state that seemed well on the way to political wellness before that running hot mess of a GOP primary season poisoned the well. I commute 38 miles each way to and from work and have yet to see a single Romney bumper sticker.
Obama's hordes are setting up offices and registering voters in every major city in the state. Not so with Romney. But again... it's easy to forget, victory in the Presidential race never was the objective anyway for the GOP-e. Their emphasis lies with holding onto the House and maybe getting close to a bare majority in the Senate.
No, Newt has not given up. Newt is still out there working to get to the convention with hopes of a brokered convention. If the lily livered weaklings who call themselves conservative would support him rather than buckle under to the GOPe things would begin to change.
I am not shilling for Romney. I don’t like the guy any more than you do.
But I will vote for the Republican nominee against Obama. Unfortunately, that nominee will be Mitt Romney.
But if you think JimRob would object, I’ll give him the chance, and squeeze the (ABUSE) Button on myself.
(Even though the nuns always said that sort of thing would make you go blind)
“Ill vote for obama.”
With apologies to Doug from Upland, some reworked Beatles:
You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the GOP-e
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the Rino-e
But when you talk about supporting Obama
Don’t you know that you can count me out
First of all, allow me to establish my Free Republic bona fides by prefacing my remarks with the obligatory anti-Romney rant: "Boo, hiss. Boo, hiss. Bad on Romney for doing well in the polls against the socialist un-American Obama. Shame on Republicans for supporting him. Boo, hiss. Boo, hiss."
Ok, now that I have that out of my system, I think that this is the year that all us have must get out to vote regardless of how we feel about the presidential candidates. We must build on the 2010 mid-term Tea Party victories by increasing our majority in the House and taking over the senate. Even if you must leave the presidential portion of the ballot blank or vote third party for that particular race.
I think u are delusional and give “Americans” to much credit. It is an unfortunate thing, most wouldn’t give a care about the Kenyan’s citizenship.
The Ruling Class (GOP-e) made that decision for the country by running Romney and working to destroy Conservatives.
I refuse to drink their forcefed poison on the tray that is nothing but an illusion of choice in this election. I'm calling them out in their complicity to share in Obama's dictatorship and refuse to play by their rules and vote for the candidate both they AND OBAMA chose to be the nominee.
Which is why I am certain that the "Tea Party" will not support obomney under any circumstances. Just because you shills have found an older and paler obomba doesn't mean the "Tea Party" will warm to him or accept him. "Tea Partiers" are not the racists you race baiters would like to think we are. Why replace a liberal with a liberal? Your answer is "because he's white." That's not good enough. If obomney is on the both sides of the ballot I will refrain from casting a vote for either side of him and continue to support those conservatives that are running for the House or the Senate. If you romney shills are serious about winning the White House you MUST dump romney and support Newt or pray for a brokered convention and support Sarah Palin.
The truth is the truth and the truth is romney, without my vote and the votes of others like me, cannot beat obomba and we are NOT going to vote for him. PERIOD!
Why do you live a life of fear? Go run and vote for Romney if that’s the security blanket you need to sooth your nerves.
As bad as Obama is, I think Romney would be worse. He’s more experienced. He’d be more productive at moving the progressive agenda forward.
Conservatives have no choice if Romney is nominated. We will be like jews choosing between Hitler and Stalin.
“Our choice is unpalatable but clear.”
GOP strategy works again! Geez those guys are clever in pushing their progressive candidates! “Well, you HAVE to vote for him now, consider the alternative!”
The nomination of Mitt Romney only shows one thing - the GOP needs to be replaced with something else.
Tea Parties warming to Mitt Romney only show one things - they need to be replaced with something else.
I’m still hoping Romney loses the nomination.
I don’t know why you had to inject race into this discussion. I think the vast majority of people here oppose Obama for reasons entirely unrelated to race.
Two things. One- why are you lying to us? You love obomney. You know it and we know it.
Two- It's sad when the only sudo-positive thing you can pull out of your a** to say about obomney is "he is better than the alternative" especially when one considers that his 'record' says the exact opposite. Obomba and romney are in one mind and in one accord when it comes to their agenda so please... stop with the bulls*** k?! Your shilling isn't fooling anyone.
It hurts my head to consider who Romney would choose for SC. Or, any number of things he might fumble the ball on like serious spending cuts...immigration...take two aprin and call me in the morning.
Is that the kind of warming they are talking about?
I’m still hoping Romney loses the nomination.
The only fear I have is that for the first time in my life I have to worry about my grandchilden living under communism with the obama regime at the helm for Gods know how long. obama is blatantly defying the Constitution, the Supreme Court and the Congress. He's taking over all industries in the private sector, he's killing jobs and ruining the futures of our children. I don't know about you, but I find that very scary indeed. You act like you will have another shot at reversing the damage - good luck with that.
That's EXACTLY what the Ruling Class has done. I refuse to capitulate to their non-choice and deceive myself into thinking my vote against Obama for Romney was anything but a ruse. Romney is no choice at all. Makes no difference if he is the nominee - Obama wins, and the Ruling Class ensured that would be the case.
You people get your jollies poking us in the eye every chance you get and than you piss and moan that we piss and moan about getting poked in the eye all the time.
Besides, it's not my job to vote for someone like Romney, it's his job to get me to vote for him. Here's a helpful hint, Mitt: Don't poke Tea Partiers in the eye and don't go running away like a scared little girl rabbit whenever someone beyond the "true believers" like Diane Sawyer asks you a question about us.
Finally, Urkel wants to take the country over the cliff in fourth gear, Stretch-a-sketch will take us over the cliff in second gear.
Either way, we go over the cliff.
There may be something to be said for going over the cliff in fourth gear. At least that way we clear the rocks below.
But although I am hoping to win the Powerball tonight, I still plan on going to work tomorrow morning.
Reality is that, if I pick one abortionist/sodomite lover over the other, I'll have to stand in front of God and try to justify why I did that. You think I should do it anyway?
I feel the same way. I "settled" for Dole, Bush II (twice), and even McCain. But Romney is simply too much. At least with the others, they had some conservative leanings, even if they weren't "pure." Romney doesn't even have that. Down the line, point by point, the guy is basically a washed-out version of Barack Obama. Seriously - guns, gays, abortion, judges, and for the FisCons, taxes, health care, government mandates.
What's telling about this is that I *used* to be the guy who was on here and elsewhere opposing third parties and "disunity" and all that to the last breath. At least our RINO is better than their leftist Democrat, and all that. But it's extremely hard to *credibly* make that case this year (though there's no lack of trying from the sellout crowd). If *I've* come around to not going along with the Party nominee anymore, then I can almost guarantee that there are millions of others thinking the same way.
That’s exactly the way I view it, sadly we seem to be in the minority here.
Anyone recall who was consistently polling 40+% for weeks before he started to see little green men in flying saucers on his front lawn?
“GLORIOUS EXPOSITION, COMRADE”
Then you are a fool. Obama must go and I don’t care if it is Charlie Sheen running against him.
You voting for obami by a 3rd party vote is exactly THE SAME THING AS PULLING THE LEVER FOR OBAMI.
