It's worse than that. They're "too principled" to vote for Romney but they don't want Obama to win either so they hope there's enough of us "less principled" folk out there to do the dirty work of pulling Romney across the finish line.
Folks this is the election of my lifetime so far.
We need to oust the COMMUNIST FREAKS at all costs.
Then there are those (like me) who live in states Romney can't win such as Hawaii, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Vermont, and Illinois. We're happy to cut into Romney's popular vote numbers to warn and to worry the GOP "leadership", particularly since if Romney is a few votes from carrying our states, it's all over for the druggie in our White House. Of all the potential nominees for our party, Romney ranked dead last on my list, below Paul (who I consider a well-meaning nutcase). I'm glad I don't have to figure out how to vote in a state when my vote might matter. I'm still hoping for the unlikely outcome in which Paul can force a contested floor vote for long enough that the delegates are free to vote their own minds, and that the delegates will act on the overwhelming lack of enthusiasm for Romney among voters.
Truer words were never spoken.
But of course... ;-)
I think your an idiot for pulling Robomney accross the finish line.
Better yet, I will do whatever I have to to STOP you from pulling robomney across the finish line.
My party WILL NOT put a socialist in the presidency. THAT is the WORST imaginable outcome in this sad F’ing state of the union.
If I vote for Romney (whose views are more like Obama than for mine) how am I doing anything but giving support to those views? And if I live in a state which Romney has no possible way of winning, why vote for him?
However, if I live in a battleground state, I may indeed have to hold my nose and pull the lever to rid us of Obama. The closeness of the polls will determine whether I have to join and grab the rope to pull him across the line.
I am not an indifferent voter, I vote in local and national elections. In 2008 in support of Palin I went around work and door to door in my neighborhood registering voters. This time I will support state candidates with money and signs. I will just avoid the topic of Romney.
