Nancy Reagan endorses Romney's bid for president
Boston Globe ^ | May 31, 2012 | AP

Posted on 05/31/2012 9:56:41 PM PDT by Innovative

The widow of President Ronald Reagan says she is firmly behind Romney. And she says that her "Ronnie" would have liked Romney's business background and what she calls his "strong principles."

In a statement issued after the Romneys' visit, Mrs. Reagan said she believes that Romney has the experience and leadership skills that, in her words, "our country so desperately needs."

It’s been a tough primary season...and some of us were really blasted for supporting Perry and others early on.
Some are still smarting from the beating up more conservative candidates took...

I must’ve missed the Romney supporter posts..LOL

I’ve lived long enough to know I don’t always get my preferred candidate..and I have yet to vote for a perfect one.
I voted for Barry Goldwater when conservative wasn’t cool...
Namecalling rolls off my back now..I know who I am.

I believe in all my years since voting for Eisenhower for my first Presidential vote..NO President has been as dangerous to my beloved country as Obama and his administration.
Votes downticket are also SO important.
I am passionate about getting Obama OUT.. and as many good conservatives as we can in Congress and the Senate..on down

There has been no nominating convention. There has been no “voice of the people”. Why do you seek to deny people of their voice.. their vote?

Too bad the general public didn’t see how dreadfully his most virulent supporters behave. They scare the straights, that’s for sure. A Willard Administration would be replete with gross paranoia, backstabbery, ego worship of “his supreme highness”, jettisoning any sense of honesty or morality, intrigue and other mental deficiencies we’ve seen out of these cretins who pimp for his cause. Pretty much Zero’s farcical regime, in RINO.

You truly crack me up. It is you punching into air at this point. Actually most all your posts have just been you punching into air.

I've asked for no followers. It is bizarre for you to even go there. Only to follow God and His leadings. Then you should accuse Jim Robinson of the same as it is his tagline I have borrowed to quote.

Am I a fan of God? Without a doubt, but I am also a speaker of truth and a defender of simple clarity. Nancy Reagan has voiced support for Mitt Romney.

Obama is ruining our country and violating principles never before seen. I am a fan for see his ass fired in November. If that is fanaticism. Then yes. Sign me up.

Also he criticized Ford quite severely in 1976 but upon losing the nomination endorsed him. I would view the Romney candidacy the same way.

Dear. So now you accuse others of what you have been doing in full force all night? I really want to accuse you of constant manipulation. Yet I can’t even call it that because you are so transparent. It gives manipulation a weak description and name.

Perry was almost as dreadful as Willard. His supporters also had a singular antipathy to hearing the truth about his record.

I lot of people have voted in the primary and Romney has the required delegates..
It is interesting to consider a revolt overturning those choices would be considered the “voice of the people.”.

You don’t remember all the debates? ALL THE DEBATES. So many we all sort of were blase about it at some point. All the candidates—one after one dropping out after primary after primary. Maybe in the future you can work to help change that process if it is is not working in the way you feel strongly it should. But for now it is what it is an plenty have spoken and the counts are in. If you can round up a new candidate for then convention then more power to you sister. Truly.

Well I am with you on defeating Zero. There we can match our stance. I would be proud to stand with a tenacious, focused fighter like yourself there.

On that we can agree and woo the fool that stands before us. :). When it comes to Romney you know I think you need therapy and you don't think much of my stance. :). But there will we have to disagree. Doesn't mean we can kick some serious butt effectively in November somehow.

I do hope you find a place to support though for November. Maybe you already are working for other candidates or causes or writing checks :). Either way. You would be a great asset in a campaign forward somewhere for November.

Work to defeat the forces of evil. Those that come in shades of tan and shades of white, whom both hate, loathe, despise and villify Conservatism. Time to go to Tampa and say “No more !” Socialist Willard is 100% unacceptable to face the unknown Marxist Emperor in November.

Nancy was never a staunch Conservative as Reagan himself was. Reagan loved Nancy with all of his heart... including putting up with some of her weird beliefs. I will respect her for Ronald but I pay absolutely no attention to anything that she says. Those that misuse her to promote their candidacy are going to face the FATHER and there will be a day of reckoning.

You know that old adage about wasting your time and annoying the pig?

You’re annoying a whole herd of them. Obviously you didn’t get the memo. This is not a conservative site (except by original intent); this is a de facto anti-obama, or an anyone-but-obama site, and when Mitt Romney achieved liftoff, he went from anathema to messiah in the time it takes a lemming to turn left. Okay? Mitt will save us. Just lie back and enjoy. Remember, he is not obama. Anyone running against obama is good. Much like anyone over the age of 90 is good; it’s just automatic; even a pro-abortion stand becomes deodorized.

I can’t wait for the day when the last disruptive conservative leaves this site so I can read paeans to Sketch Romney during my coffee break without ever seeing flames shot from circular formations of Ben Dovers.

My Goodness! I do believe there are some freepers on here who would vote for Willard even if he started performing street abortions and homosexual marriages....and would then accuse Freepers who are NOT voting for Willard of being agents of Hussein. That is SICK and you folks need to find another website to pimp your Mormon Idol instead of attacking TRUE CONSERVATIVES.

lol...

Now the gop’s very own socialist has to trot out Reagan’s wife... heh..

Trust me on this... I wouldn’t vote for romney even if he resurrected RR and put him on the ticket as VP.

Romney is a socialist.

Oh.. so because someone knew someone for however many years they MUST share that persons ideology? well.. I guess someone needs to tell Regan’s kid that hes F’ed up and simply CANT a flaming F’ing socialist.

I don’t know what Nancy’s inclinations are but i know she said McCain was OK with her as well.

This isn’t going to work either. Back the drawing board romneybots! better yet... dump your stupid F’ing socialist at the convention and lets pick up someone we can ALL get behind, otherwise you WILL regret your zealous support of this socialist. Youll not only be fighting the dems come November but you’ll also be fighting a significant percentage of what USED to be the republican base. THEN when the dust clears, YOU will be blamed for the disaster, be it Nov 8.. or when obamacare gets written in stone as RomneyCare.

Speaking of socialized medicine... I wonder what Reagan had to say about that????

Hmmmm......

God love her.
However, I doubt she did any Youtube searches of Willard? His liberal history. Not to mentioin the one where he says, IN HIS OWN WORDS, “i’m no Rondald Reagan”

I am hoping everything I have learned about his history is truly that..history?
Although, I havn’t seen much evidence of same.
Maybe Mrs Reagan can set me staight?

"Nancy Reagan endorses Romney's bid for president"

Why didn't she endorse Willard BEFORE he was the nominee???What if she had endorsed Hussein or had even said "you have nothing to worry about with Obamao president"? Would you vote for him? Most of us see right through the charade.

Actually, there are (sadly), MANY here on FR who want to see Obama get a second term. Many have said that if Obama wins again, the GOP would SURELY nominate their perfect conservative in 2016, even though that person does not exist.

It breaks my heart.

The supposition...that Nancy Reagan is so weak-minded that she can be readily manipulated into doing something against her conviction IS an INSULT to her.

"I don't believe in abortion. On the other hand, I believe in a woman's choice. That puts me somewhere in the middle, but I don't know what to call that." -- Nancy Reagan, 1994.

Nobody said she was weak-minded! Here's my take...well...umm...let me call my personal astrologer and I'll get back to you shortly.
