Sarah and Todd voted for Newt. Did you? Did you $upport his campaign?
If you didn’t, don’t claim you are on their side but on the ‘any dog will do’ side.
Jim zotted her personally.
Then write in Ross Perot. That'll show em!
And the last 5 elections, the GOP has put up a moderate or liberal. No conservatives. Why should you expect a conservative to vote GOP?
And here is another article from Reason Foundation that was published in 1993. This confirms that Heritage Foundation was for individual mandate.
“Santorum did better than Newt, but he never had a chance to win because too many conservatives recognized he could never win a national general election.”
1 - Both Santorum and Newt were second tier, mediocre (at best) candidates.
2 - It amazes me that some Newt supporters are myopic enough to think that Newt could have won the general. Santorum had a better shot by far.
I thought this election would be an inspiration and a chance for conservatism to blossom. Far from it!
However, anyone thinking that another four years of 0 is preferable to Romney is severely delusional. We can’t afford 0’s spending, and we REALLY can’t afford any SCOTUS picks of his.
I’m sure many that’re saying they’ll not vote, or will vote third party will instead come to their senses by November.
Oooo...the eye of ZOT! Buh-bye trolls and disruptors!
You just never know who the Great Cat will zot.
We differ on the Newt/Santorum issue, but I agree with everything else in your post. It is definitely a huge letdown to wind up with Romney after all the excitement in 2010. Saying that, I agree we have to vote for the only candidate that has any chance of beating Hussein - even if only to stop the Supreme Court from going hard left. Most of this talk about not voting or voting 3rd party will diminish as we get closer to November.
What is with all the fricking trolls lately??? Oh well, I always enjoy the comments on Zot threads as humiliating morons is awesome!!!
Hang in Newt, hang in! What have you got to lose at this point? Go for brokered!
Send him an e-mail asking him to stay in if he can. I told him this was always going to be a tough day in the northeastern states where Mitt’s home base is. He was polling close to Mitt in TX yesterday and ahead of Mitt with evangelicals there. The upcoming states are much more favorable to true conservatives than Tuesday’s states were. We need Newt’s delegates, ideas and influence at the convention.
I like Sarah as Sec. of Energy that would be cool.
Do you think she would accept a cabinet position?
What about Sec. of the Interior?
I have supported Rick Santorum, but it wasn’t without noticing that he couldn’t seem to help himself from making mistakes. In my perfect world, Rick isn’t someone I see leading out with regard to Conservatism. I don’t think he’s well grounded.
This was a terrible year for Conservatism during the run up to the nomination process.
I appreciate your comment. No offense intended.
But it's a pretty good bet if the poster says that folks who won't vote for Romney are kooks and socialists.
There's yer sign.
I doubt it...Obama doesn’t know anything about goodness. Neither does Willard.
