Good for you! I told the GOP to pound sand ages ago. It’s good to see others do the same.

We had to go through one civl war and we may have to go through another. The GOP are the new Whigs.
Limbaugh is complaining that Obama wants to take us back to the 1930s. Is that why the GOP picked the candidate from 1944 and 1948? How about Alf Landon or Wendell Wilkie?

Gawd! How long until Temper Tantrum Season is over, already ?


Well, you can forsake your principles and vote for Romney and every other liberal/socialist candidate foisted upon you by the party.

I won’t. I am not sheep.

Only drawback: you’ll now get mailings and robo-calls from Both parties.

It’s worth it, somehow.

"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

[Cato Institute annual Fiscal Policy Report Card - America's Governors, 2004.]

“The Massachusetts Republican Party died last Tuesday.
The cause of death: failed leadership.

The party is survived by a few leftover legislators
and a handful of county officials and grassroots activists
who have been ignored for years.
Services will be public and a mass exodus of taxpayers will follow.
In lieu of flowers, send messages to Republican voters
warning them about a certain presidential candidate named Romney.”

- Boston Herald, 11/12/2006

"In 2006, while Romney was chairman of the National Republican
Governors Association - a group dedicated to electing more
Republican governors - his own hand-picked Republican successor
as governor lost badly to the Democrat, despite the fact that Republicans
have held the governorship in Massachusetts since 1990. Romney largely
ignored the Massachusetts elections and spent most of the time
during the campaign out of state building his presidential campaign.
He came back and publicly campaigned for the Republican candidate
the day before the general election!
“Locally, this is a rebuke to Mitt Romney and checking out within six months
after being elected and having accomplished almost nothing,”

[Jim] Rappaport [former chairman of the state Republican Party]."
- Boston Globe, 11/8/2006

"Governor Mitt Romney, who touts his conservative credentials to out-of-state Republicans,
has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters 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, a Globe review of the nominations has found.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats
or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians
or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show.
In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters,
and 14 registered Democrats."
- Boston Globe 7/25/2005

Romney Rewards one of the State's Leading Anti-Marriage Attorneys by Making him a Judge
Romney told the U.S. Senate on June 22, 2004, that the "real threat to the States is not the
constitutional amendment process, in which the states participate,
but activist judges who disregard the law and redefine marriage . . ."
Romney sounds tough but yet he had no qualms advancing the legal career of one
of the leading anti-marriage attorneys.
He nominated Stephen Abany to a District Court.
Abany has been a key player in the Massachusetts Lesbian and Gay Bar Association which,
in its own words, is "dedicated to ensuring that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision
on marriage equality is upheld, and that any anti-gay amendment or legislation is defeated."
- U.S. Senate testimony by Gov. Mitt Romney, 6/22/2004 P>

"Romney announces he won't fill judicial vacancies before term ends
Despite his rhetoric about judicial activism, Romney announced that
he won't fill all the remaining vacancies during his term - but instead
leave them for his liberal Democrat successor!

Governor Mitt Romney pledged yesterday not to make a flurry of lame-duck
judicial appointments in the final days of his administration . . . David Yas,
editor of Lawyers Weekly, said Romney is "bucking tradition" by resisting the urge to
fill all remaining judgeships. "It is a tradition for governors to use that power to appoint judges
aggressively in the waning moments of their administration," Yas said.
He added that Romney has been criticized for failing to make judicial appointments.
"The legal community has consistently criticized him for not filling open seats quickly enough
and being a little too painstaking in the process and being dismissive of the input of the
Judicial Nominating Commission," Yas said.

So YOU like Romney because he is a partner with Soros
in JET Blue.

And that he screwed company after company through
Yup. That should work this year. /s

Office Depot is the result of vulture capitalism? That term was coined by Newt Gingrich, you know, the one who sat on a couch with Nancy Pelosi and has never run a business in his life....

With respect to Jet Blue...if you have a 401k and invest in mid cap stocks, chances are you are investing in a company that Soros, Romney, or CALPERS (Californian’s unionized state employees) invests in. Businesses don’t discriminate when it comes to borrowing money to grow the it should be....

He only got to where he is because of Daddy's money.

And he grew that money because of his business sense. Why is that a bad thing? My father helped me get into college, should I be ashamed of that?

“Well, fine. If you don’t vote against Obama, you’re voting for his next two or three Supreme Court picks.”

Party Peon math, like “one half of one third” of the government, when the GOP in fact controls one third, and the third which controls spending at that.

Apparently, you must know of another alternative candidate who has of chance of defeating Obama? Who would that be?

Take a breath, relax.

Listen, you must vote for Mr. Romney. I know, he’s not Mr. Reagan, but no one is. But Mitt is one heckuva lot better than the current occupant of The White House.

Keep your chin up. Good things are going to happen!

“How long until Temper Tantrum Season is over, already?”

If I had to guess: until Zombie Reagan declares his candidacy. Until then, the self-righteous Santorumites will keep lecturing the rest of us on “principles” and “sending a message,” and the Left will gleefully gobble up their wasted votes.

Vote for Romney, work to get conservatives in the house and senate. It’s the best case scenario this year.

It's the ONLY scenario, IMHO. 4 more years of the Kenyan will absolutely destroy American, make no mistake.

Welcome to the INDEPENDENTS.
I changed my party affiliation in 2008 after that debacle. Like Reagan in the 1960s, the party left me in the dust in their move to the left and their disdain for any and all things conservative.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
