Look, here’s the truth, and its the truth the press isn’t willing to talk with.
In recent polling a full 20% of DEMOCRATS being polled are openly admitting they are going to vote for Romney.
Do the math folks, that’s an astonishing number.
The electorate breakdown is about 30% dem, 30% republican and 40% indepenedent.
Obama is NOT going to win the independent vote, in fact come election day the split will be 3-2 to 2 to 1 for Romney MINIMAL. Add to that that Obama will lose at least 20% of the democratic base, tells you something important.
That being, for this race to be remotely close, the swing voters can’t just go 50%+1 votes for Obama for him to win, they have to go 65%+1 vote for Obama. Obama to make up for the 20% who are already openly admitting they are going to vote Republican, he must win the Indepdendents by 65 - 35% to make that up. Do you reall think swing voters are going to vote 2-1 for this arseclown? Not hardly.
Obama is viewed as extreme by a 2-1 margin vs Romney.
Fight like its going to be a nailbiter, but this thing isn’t going to be close folks. Don’t get complacent, but don’t buy into the junk you are being fed, this junk said this guy was unbeatable, and too many people bought into that tripe which is why we had probably the weakest batch of candidates in my lifetime during the primaries.
Obama has a hard upper bound of about 42-43% this election, and that’s if he runs a flawless campaign.. And his campaign is a train wreck.
I honestly think the guy will be lucky to get 40% on election day. And before you say Carter wasn’t even routed that bad, keep in mind 1 fact... Obama will have fewer americans working the day his term ends, than the day he took office, not a fewer percentage of people employed, FEWER ACTUAL PEOPLE EMPLOYED!!! He will be the ONLY President in the modern era with that distinction, even Carter managed the economy better than Obama!
18% mortgage interest rates, and gas lines made him unelectable.. the Iran Hostage situations just put the icing on the cake.
It needs to be heard loudly and clearly as long as there is a minute chance that you actually may change the mind of one person here.

A one-hitter who repeats the same tired mantra over and over. It’s used to described some shrill, tired ideologue or academic that pompously echoes some quaint notion or idea endlessly, and expects everyone to see his supposed wisdom and bow in concurrence.
I’ll have to try that. Right now I have two posters I scroll through. (There was three but one disappeared) You can see it coming, they’re so predictable. One of them is obsessed with wee wee and the other it’s spam images.
I’ve never used the Adblock but just guessing it would only work on the images, right?
Sour grapes are the product of failure and frustration.
Sour grapes are the result of irrelevancy.
Sour grapes hide the fact a new future is just around the corner but can’t be seen through the narrow tunnel view.
Sour grapes are a tragedy

“I honestly think the guy will be lucky to get 40% on election day.”
Considering the undecideds will mostly break for the challenger, the Kenyan also knows he’s history.
The time for woulda-coulda-shoulda is over. The SoCons didn't like Newt, and the fiscal conservatives and libertarians didn't like Santorum, so Romney is who we got.
I have been politically involved since working for Barry Goldwater when I was 16. Am definitely not stupid and not a cheerleader for Romney, but am smart enough to recognize that this republic will be unrecognizable if Obama gets another four years. Those who do not recognize that are the ones who are stupid and disgusting. Or perhaps delusional.
My own enthusiasm for Romney approaches my enthusiasm for a root canal or a prostate exam. But sometimes root canals and prostate exams are necessary to avoid bigger problems down the road.
As the name implies, it is primarily for blocking annoying ads, and comes preloaded with a huge list of known advertising sources.
You can create custom filters for stuff that it doesn’t catch. If an image annoys you, you only need to left click on the image, the menu that opens up has a selection “Adblock Plus: Block Image”, and that opens a window in which you can select the image itself, all images in that directory, or all images from that website. Three or four clicks, and you never see that image again.
Thank you, I’m heading to the site now :)
Yes, my friend, I don’t like the nominee but we are faced with giving a man four more years to finish the destruction of the country he and his wife hate. He will succeed in that destruction if give the chance.
My hope is that, if Romney wins, real elected conservatives will hold his feet to the fire and make him do the right thing.
Perhaps I actually have the luxury of voting my conscience. California is lost. With the RAT majority, I really don’t even have much chance of having a voice in state affairs. Maybe a massive earthquake gets rid of San Francisco, Santa Monica, West L.A., Santa Cruz, etc., and ends at Upland so I can have beachfront property. That works.
Perhaps we’ll say the same of Obama in 30 years.....
Stand strong, naps. The attacks on anyone who isn’t a Mittens bootlicker here will continue.
Romney hasn’t gotten any better. But the desperation to replace Obama is so strong that people now see Willard through a less discriminating filter..ie rose colored glasses.
If the Mass. moderate wins,(and improvement in speech content and enthusiasm is because his campaign team listened to sound advice from Ingraham, Kristol, Rush and Levin), he will be the luckiest RINO/reacher across the aisle/good ol’ GOP-E poster boy on earth. Under any other light, he FAILS the conservative smell test...miserably.
Better Romney’s finger in my butt than Obama’s knife in my heart.
At least he’s wearing a glove.
Even with the possible disaster of a Hussein victory, Bam will NOT be able to do the damage he seeks if we have the Senate and the House. And EVEN if we don’t take 60 seats in the Senate, but rather get close..like with 57 or 58, the Kenyan’s “power” will be diminished.
There are Dems who are already ditching him because they have to get reelected two years after the election. Hell, even Der Sleek has advised him to temper his crusade to overtax the rich, knowing it could put the kabosh on future opps for Dem majorities.
There are ways to skin the the hide of the dastardly Demorats and even Obama himself. Work hard to help core Constitutional conservatives get elected to office at all levels of government.
Expecting Romney, a seriously flawed candidate, to rescue us (and become someone he is not) will bring us nothing but disappointment and post election depression. Anyone think the GOP-E won’t try to throw the Tea Party and all it stands for under the bus on Nov.7?
It’s up to WE THE PEOPLE to find our way out of this mess and save the country we love so much.
If Obama ends up putting a knife in your heart, it’ll be because you allowed him to do it.
Hahaha! You made my day.
A five point lead (I understand it's just one poll) before the convention is definitely an indicator that this election can be a landslide defeat of Obama. I also agree with you that Newt would not do any better. In fact, I think we would be running behind. I understand the Free Republic community would be doing handstands with Newt as the nominee but we represent maybe .004% of the electorate. Women and Independents would be running for the hills and we would have a very hard time winning with him in November - I know that's not what Freepers want to hear but that's the way I see it.
I tell you one thing, if Rasmussen has Romney up by 5 (and they had him up by 4 yesterday), the Obama campaign is crapping their pants. The GOP convention is still a month away and between now and then, Romney will be controlling the news cycle, especially if he announces his running mate in the next week or so.
Don't forget that Romney can't start spending his money until after the convention as he spent most of his pre-convention money in the primaries. Because Obama did not have to contest for the nomination, he's had the luxury of spending his pre-convention money this summer. The ad battle will be joined in September and Mitt has lots of money to be spent.
It is about socialized medicine, death panels, and
RomneyCARE = ObamaCARE = DeathCARE by Govt Choice.
Want to see why Mr. RomneyCARE cannot win????
“And EVEN if we dont take 60 seats in the Senate, but rather get close..like with 57 or 58, the Kenyans power will be diminished.”
Get real. With his czars, executive orders and that POS Holder nothing will slow the Kenyan down. He doesn’t follow the rules. He suspends laws (immigration) when it suits him, he’s dismantling welfare reform and on and on. The Kenyan doesn’t give a damn about the senate.
“Neither....Just voting for the down ticket because the GOP finally crossed the line and left me behind....”
“The GOP” apparently arranged for conservatives to spread their votes between several weak, poorly financed, candidates....and of course the conservatives gladly complied.
And now you claim conservatives are victims of “the GOP” whereas I maintain conservatives are only the victims of their own poor strategy, poor tactics, poor financing, poor organization, poor leadership, etc.
I never said I hoped Romney lose. Although getting kicked to the curb at the convention would make me very happy. What I am saying is that we have such a loser candidate that it is going to be close. Any other decent candidate would win easily over Obama.
He has as much power as you and others who live in FEAR give him. He’s like the Wizard of Oz.
Get up off the couch and WORK to stop him.
There are hundreds of conservative groups who are fighting every day against tyranny. Why don’t you join one? hmm?
Polls are all over the place right now.
It’s ridiculous to assume that either candidate is doing well ..or not..when most people are fishing, swimming, drinking RC cola and watching drag races right now.
They will tune in after Labor Day and then the indicators will be stronger..
The Obama campaign may be having heart attacks...but it’s more likely from their internals than from a random Rasmussen poll.
Obama’s knife would actually be in your back. That is the Chicago way and how a community organizer does it.
That must be dogenis. You all usually team up to destroy threads w/ pro-0bama crap. I will say it's mostly the diogenis poster. But you're there too cheerleading for Romney's defeat usually.
Although getting kicked to the curb at the convention would make me very happy. What I am saying is that we have such a loser candidate that it is going to be close. Any other decent candidate would win easily over Obama.
What I am saying - and I believe most other repubs are saying is to get rid of 0bama. In spite of our desire to have a better candidate, whining and moaning about him won't help get rid of 0bama. Getting our nominee elected WILL get rid of 0bama.
Now, c'mon man - defeat 0bama.
“Get up off the couch and WORK to stop him.”
I will. I’ll be voting against the Kenyan in November.
re: “BUT Mr. ROMNEYCARE WAS CAREFULLY SELECTED
by the DNC...”
Do you really believe that? The DNC — Democratic National Committee — actually had the power to select the Republican nominee? I have been following politics since working on the Goldwater campaign. Only Debbie Blabbermouth could make a statement that approaches such foolishness.
Perhaps you could have said that debate moderators helped frame the debate and the MSM wrote the stories that did damage to his opponents to help clear the way. At least that position would be something you could argue. But the statement above was so preposterous that no one can ever take you seriously. Are you sure you don’t want to take it back or claim it was a typo?
I agree. The Kenyan can’t break out of the low 40’s and his campaigning has only raised his negatives.
re: “He has as much power as you and others who live in FEAR give him. Hes like the Wizard of Oz.”
Not true. We have not given him power because of our fear. As the Soviets did, he took power without consent of the governed. Are you not paying attention that Obama has totally trashed the Constitution? He has the power he has because he is not bound by the Constitution and the Fourth Estate is dead. As much as our side might fight, he will never be impeached and convicted. Clinton proved that.
"It's a feel-good story, this Romney thing.
Romney is an ascendant guy."
Sen. John Kerry (D) to Don Imus on RomneyCARE:
"I like this health care bill".
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) on RomneyCARE:
"To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable."
Dang, I posted to the wrong thread. Probably too late now :(
I will cease commenting on you efforts with one last thought
When you begin to see blobs of pink goo, it is time to quit flogging a dead horse.
Peace be with you.
RomneyBOT? I have made my position very clear. He was way, way down my list of candidates. I really hoped Newt could have taken him down. I am an anti-Obamaite. The danger he poses in a second term in which he doesn’t have to worry about another election is incalculable. If you won’t apologize for the RomneyBOT comment, I will do it for you =
DIOGENESIS: Sorry, Doug, I knew you were not a Romney supporter and just made up the comment. So I take it back. I should not have called you that.
DFU: apology accepted
So, FRiend, here is a free clue: You support Romney = RomneyBOT
Here is another: ROMNEYCARE = OBAMACARE.
I have said I am voting for Romney numerous times. But I also said I am not helping him to get elected. He needs to figure out how to get elected himself.
I'd not ever seen that. Thanks for letting us know.
But I also said I am not helping him to get elected.
Well you are to the extent of voting for him.
He needs to figure out how to get elected himself.
Yes, that is the essence of being the nominee. So you're voting for him but don't want to help him get elected.
Is this Jay Carney?
You are giving him, the Narcissist in Chief, the power and attention that he craves.
He wants you to think that he will never be impeached or convicted.
He wants you to think he is the Messiah.
He wants you to think that there is something behind the mask other than the accumulation of a lifetime of nurtured rage. He wants you to believe that we are backed into a corner and have no way out.
The founding fathers in their wisdom were not dissuaded by the potential for this kind of evil. ...and you shouldn’t be either.
Our job is to try to convince that segment of the electorate who voted for Hussein that they do not have to repeat their past mistake...not with words(at least for some of my stubborn/confused acquaintances) but with actions.
Be a role model for truth and first principles.
Stand tall on the shoulders of our brave framers(and the Gipper)......and pray.
Voting against the Kenyan is good.
Not doing more than you know you are capable of to help promote the causes of freedom ..is not good.
No. I normally give the candidates the max donation to their election. I am not giving Romney a penny. That is what I mean. I am not handing out pamplets or having signs or anything like that. I also am not convincing anyone to vote for him because I don’t want to be blamed for the without a doubt disappointment he will be to most people. You have a vested interest in Romney obviously. You seem to continue on and on about this subject. And your snotty little comments are very kindergarten. I understand that their are some young people on here but I thought most were about 18...obviously I was wrong.
