Time for "Democrats for Romney"
New York Post ^ | August 17, 2012 | JERRY DELLA FEMINA

Posted on 08/18/2012 5:51:10 PM PDT by pistolpackinpapa

Almost all of my friends are Democrats; all of them voted for Barack Obama in 2008. Ask them these days, as I have, if they plan to vote for Obama this November, and they’ll give you an “Oh shucks” sad smile, look down, look back up with guilty eyes and say “I’m disappointed.” I’m talking about a good number of intelligent, caring, middle-class Democrats who are a soft nudge away from casting their vote for Romney. All they need to know is that they’re not alone.

In 1980, Carter treated Reagan as a ridiculous figure who, among other things, was ignorant of details of nuclear-weapons policy. Reagan cheerfully promised economic growth and asked Democrats, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” In the end, Reagan proved that good-natured conservatism could win by huge margins. But a lot of credit for the win must go to “Democrats for Reagan.”

Here’s an example of a commercial that would win Democratic votes for Mitt Romney: A man, about 40, is sitting in his living room with his wife and kids seated next to him. He looks into the camera and says: “I’ve voted Democratic all my life. In 2008 I voted for Barack Obama. It was a vote I am proud of. I wanted to be part of the generation that voted a black man into the presidency of the United States. It was the right vote for the right reason. But, sadly, it was for the wrong man. “I don’t think this country can survive four more years of Barack Obama as president. I know my family can’t. I lost my job two years ago, and I fear I’m going to lose my house. “Mitt Romney has the business experience to bring back our economy. He has my vote.”

So, hell, let's take all the Democrat votes we can get. WE GOTTA GET THE KENYAN, MARXIST MUSLIM OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!!!

Oh please.

Your “intelligent” friends voted for a fraud and non-achiever just because of his race? Our country and issues are ALOT more important than your racist, “racial guilt” What made you think this “black guy” would “unify” this country when his politics has always been far-left?

Good lord what idiots vote.

True in one sense. Trying to vote Obama out can be quite a leap for many Democrats though.

So, are you including the owner of this board in your rant?

FR, the pro-God "purist" site that RINOs love to hate

And I guess you didn't get the memo that this is a CONSERVATIVE board, and not necessarily a Republican board.

Lots of people seem to have forgotten that these days.

A goodly number of people did exactly that. Millions, probably. Because it seemed to be "the right thing to do"...at the time.

Among them were some of our vaunted "conservative intellectuals" -- e.g., Peggy Noonan, David Brooks, et al.

No, it made so sense. But, then, gooey people rarely make sense.

Advertising such as Della Femina proposes would be highly effective.

Screw Romney and his puddinhearted moderate purists. The GOP can kiss my wrinkled ass if they think I'll overlook their behavior and bend over for Romney. Don't like it take it up with the party and you can shove that "Swallow your pride crap where the sun don't shine" Conservatives have been swallowing our pride and accepting moderate scum for far too long when the moderates are the ones who don't make deals with conservatives.

The Michigan Republican Party (MRP) Credentials Committee voted 4-2 last night to give Mitt Romney both of the state's at-large delegates, State Policy Committee Chair Mike Cox told MIRS today.

Cox was one of two "no" votes on the committee which met via telephone, along with attorney Eric Doster The "yes" votes included GOP National Committeeman Saul Anuzis, a Romney supporter, and MRP Chair Bobby Schostak.

That would put the delegate split at 16 for Romney and 14 for Rick Santorum, after each candidate won 14 delegates apiece in those divided by Michigan's 14 congressional districts.

As MIRS first reported on Wednesday, the MRP was delaying a final decision on the delegate split until after consulting with attorneys.

Cox said that according to the MRP rules, Santorum and Romney should each get one of Michigan's two at-large delegates based on their take of the popular vote.

"I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong," Cox said of the Credentials Committee. "It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."

Here’s an amazingly simple line from an interview with Guy Sorman, a French economist in this morning’s WSJ: “It’s very rare that a nation chooses decline,”.

Use it in anti-Kenyan commercials. Associate in people’s minds decline with the mulatto clown.

The simple fact that for all their lip flapping and lying, "moderates" are the true purists who wouldn't vote for a conservative if their lives depended on it. George Romney himself displayed how moderates behave in 1964 when he stomped off the convention stage and refused to endorse or support Goldwater and the same behavior stands today.

"I and a lot of Republicans I know won't vote for a tea party guy," said attorney David Zacks of Bloomfield Hills, strolling past the expensive boutique shops of downtown Birmingham with his son during a recent lunch hour.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2903940/posts?q=1&;page=51

As far as I'm concerned, moderates are nothing but particularly cowardly democrats. The GOP has been moderated into a coma and they do nothing but feed on the decaying body. If they had the slightest bit of courage they would moderate the party that actually needs it. Moderates are nothing but lying, manipulative bottom feeding scum.

Interestingly, millions of voters voted for Obama simply because of his race, and that is no exaggeration. Most people don't follow politics closely and could care less about details, most vote Dem or Republican as if it were their favorite sports team.

Millions of voters wanted to be part of the “I voted for the first black president of the US”, and didn't know one damned thing about the man they were voting for other than the color of his skin.

You may not believe it is true, but if you simply dismiss this reality out of hand you aren't aware of the mental makeup of the majority of voters in this country.

While this may not be the best commercial to run, it would undoubtedly strike a chord with millions of voters who simply don't follow politics very closely, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea as it could also turn off several million who will not respond to such a blatant “truism”.

This writer's POV is really insignificant. Romney will likely get some Democratic votes in NY State where this writer lives. Romney will get some Democrat votes in Massachusetts where he gave birth to the forerunner of Obamacare. He will likely get some votes in his old home state of Michigan, the state in which his Mexican national daddy became the first foreign born citizen to illegally run for the presidency. But thank God, presidential elections are determined by the electoral college not popular vote.

If Democrats in battleground states vote for Romeny that could be significant, but whether this writer has a few Dem friends in New York who might vote for Romney means nothing.

If Dems vote for Romney in places like NY, Mass, and Michigan mean something then Mittens is on his way to a landslide.

Posters on this forum who vow not to vote for Mittens are only significant if they live in battleground states. If you live in New York,Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan or California and vow not to vote for Romney, it matters little in an election decided by the electoral college.

I don’t know; but, unless people are totally committed to their Christian faith, or their moral beliefs, their pocket book is the biggest issue. I was for Santorum in the Primary Season because I am a “values” voter first. Romney was not my 1st, 2nd, 3rd.....7th choice. But, we have to play the hand we’re dealt and pray that a majority in the Senate and House will keep him in check. But, Priority One is getting the Godless Commie out of the White House.

Wha...? "Forgive"? Don't you mean "sanction"?

And do excuse me for seeming "bitter" when asked to vote for a guy who originally wrote ObamaCare, a guy who takes global warming very seriously (it appeals to his manager's heart in principle), a guy who has bent over backward to endorse and help expand the homosexual agenda, which really means denying the rights of free people to peacefully reject open homosexuality in their societies. That I refuse to sanction that is less a fruit of "bitterness" than it is an act of common sense.

I voted for Ross Perot in ‘92 and I helped give the U.S. and the world the Clintons for life. And Obama makes the Clintons look like Saints. Worst political mistake I ever made. I, and millions of others, bit our noses off to spite our faces. I learned that the place where you find people who want to “send a message” is in the “Lost Column”. I’ll never make that mistake again.

I agree with you Post #14. Isn’t it amazing how people use Scripture for their tagline but they are so hateful, nasty and mean-spirited on this website. Using vulgarity and demeaning terms while calling people names who don’t walk lock-step with them. That’s the type of people who have caused many people to quit going to church. It gives credibility to their arguement: “The church is full of hypocrites.” There will be a lot of surprised people on Judgment Day.

That's one way to look at it. On the other hand, HW was full tilt moderate, "Read my lips" was just talk, and I didn't want to vote for him either, but I did. If he'd have won, especially if he'd won with a regular ol' majority vote, it would have been busienss as usual and the Republican party would have stayed squarely left course. Clinton got in and the Republican Revolution happened two years later. Then the next time Clinton got in, he was impeached.

Obama is vulnerable, much more vulnerable than Clinton in the popularity department. He's a skinny fraud.

Your vote for Perot was the right thing to do with regard to taking a righteous chance, and it had positive consequences for conservatism. But I was madder than hell at you at the time.

The money line in the article IS... “I voted for Obama because he was black”, meaning they wanted a black President.. Helped no doubt by so many movies that showed a black President.. I can think of several..

A question ROMNEY should raise is are you voting for a President BECAUSE of his COLOR?..

This could be highlighted in several ways.. maybe in the debate(s)..
Like: If you’re voting for President because of his color you should not be voting.. because thats THE RACIST VOTE...

Obamas policies are BAD no matter his color.. a white President doing the same things would be a mistaken vote..

Romney and Obama are in sync on several serious problems..
But Romney is embarrassed by these issues so he doesn’t mention them..

WE the voting public are like Pavlov’s Dogs.. brain washed..
OR either of these scissor-bills would be unelectable..

” - - - “Democrats for Reagan.”

Reagan identified himself as a Democrat by saying “I didn’t leave the Democrat Party - - - it left me!”

Thus, Reagan was able to get the Democrats to thinking: “You know, this guy Reagan may have something there?! I haven’t liked what the Democrats have been doing for years! What is Reagan going to do that Carter has not been doing?”

The first of the above questions created doubt, the second question created identity of thought, and the third created curiosity.

Reagan did the rest with his bare-knuckled fist style of grand soaring rhetoric, always aimed at those who held America’s best values dear.

His Republicans forgave him for coming out of the Democrat Party, the RINOs begrudgingly saw that they would lose if they continued to oppose Reagan, and the MSM hated everybody but the Democrats who stayed loyal to Jimmah.

Can Romney fight like the Warrior that Reagan Was?

Can Ryan get the RINOs to stop holding him back?

Can either Romney or Ryan create doubt, thought identity and curiosity in a manner similar to Reagan?

So far the polls show that Romney and Ryan have a 50 -50 chance of __________________________________________________ .

Ditto my FRiend. In 92 I was too busy with a 24/7 Career and I got hooked on the Perot “outsider” Kool Aid. It is a mistake I will forget.

Living in CA means my Perot Vote didn't change the course of History, but that really doesn't matter. It was personal failure and I live with it every day.

Since I am still living in CA, I could join the FR Anybody but Romney Brigade without fear that my non support would help give us Obama the Commie for another four years.

That is the easy way out and I am not going to give one millimeter to Obama. Newt was my guy and he didn't make it. Now he supports Romney over Obama, just as one of my favorite people Mark Levin does.

As Rumsfeld famously said and was attacked for,
“you go to war with the Military you have”. Well, we are there when only one of the Major Party Candidates will be elected.

This Virgil Goode stuff and the other guy whose name escapes me can only help the Obama camp this time around. None of their supporters would have ever Voted Democrat, so now they will be Voting Democrat by Proxy using the argument that a non Vote does not improve Obama’s chances. Yeah, and I have a bridge to sell you.

I agree. He would know. He's smack in the middle of Democratland, surrounded by rabid liberals. He's married to Judy Licht who used to work at WABC-TV 7 in New York City and now writes a fashion column for HuffPo.

Good idea, Jerry! Make it happen!

This writer's POV is really insignificant.

Jerry Della Femina is an ad guy. He went from copywriter to founder of his own successful agency. These people live, breathe, and study human motivation, because dollars rest on it.

After a long career, he retired to Eastern Long Island, the playground of the rich, clueless, and Democratic. There he got bored, and founded two successful restaurants. At restaurants, you get to listen to people tell you what they think with a few drinks in them. I'm confident Jerry knows his customers.

What I get from his column is that a lot of soft-headed liberals supported 0zero in 2008 because they figured they could pat themselves on the back and live in a Coke commercial in their minds, and it wouldn't cost them anything. They have figured out how much it actually cost, and they're not happy.

Speaking of New York liberals, it happened before when Rudy Giuliani ran for Mayor against David Dinkins—a tennis-playing party hack who, like Obama, was vaguely black (my daughter tans better). In his first term, Dinkins destroyed the city with crime and corruption so fast, the liberals turned out in droves the first chance they got. They quietly voted Rudy into office by a big margin—then re-elected him when he proved he could make order out of chaos.

When liberals get disillusioned, they really run for the exits. Don't forget how much we complain when liberals move to normal states like NC and Virginia and turn them into dangerous swing states. Well, if New York liberals are backing away from Zippy, it means something very significant: He's toast in the New South.

This is just a very diplomatic way of telling these race card Democrats that their party served up a real turkey in the purported name of atoning for America’s racial sins. Three years ago I was saying that 90% of the black people in the phone book would be able to do a better job in the White House than this very special Barack Obama who was raised up to be a puppet of a gaggle of socialist special interests.

So what do these democrats think about abortion, gay marriage, illegal immigration, global warming etc?

What does it profit a man if he treats a prodigal like the older brother?

Or perhaps - he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Sheesh - if someone starts to see the light - but doesn't see it all at a speed that is acceptable to YOU - we should take away the light. Am I reading you correctly?

You epitomize - "first, remove the log from you own eye..."

Glad to see that Jerry “ From Those Wonderful Folks Who Gave You Pearl Harbor” Della Famina is still kicking.

You two narcissistic guys, with your martyr complexes, have convinced yourselves that you are the only two in America standing for righteousness, justice, truth and the American way. Must be a lonely world you two live in.

I can guarantee you it's a lot more than two. You mentioned earlier that. I don’t know who the owner of this board is voting for or not voting for, I can tell you one thing, it won't be Romney.

Well now, that's at least 4 of us in that "lonely world" you mentioned. There must be a couple of others around here somewhere.

“We are losing our country to godless socialism and what does the GOP do? Run an abortionist/homosexualist statist whose socialist RomneyCare program was the blueprint and impetus for ObamaCare! Screw that!! I’ll vote for the GOP’s candidate for the presidency when they run a CONSERVATIVE!! Otherwise, to hell with them!! The GOP is fast cementing their place as part of the problem! Wake up America!!”

No I will not vote for an abortionist for president. Period. It’s no secret. I’ve been posting that I will not vote for Rudy/Romney abortionist for many years.

Welcome to Free Republic, America’s exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!

Romney does not qualify on any count!

Jim Robinson.

Well, if New York liberals are backing away from Zippy, it means something very significant: He’s toast in the New South.

I have no idea how anyone could vote for Obama. There was too much known. Did these folks seriously think he was going to be a pro-American strong defense figure?

The guy was clearly an enemy of the state.

The best defense for an idiot that voted for him, is to now be quiet and hope folks never find out.

Thank God I will never have that on my conscience.

Most disgusting is the attempt to lie Romney into being Reagan.

Reagan didn't cower from social issues the way Romney does and those issues brought huge numbers of socially conservative democrats to the GOP. They wee people who had largely voted for Kennedy on his socially conservative stances. They voted for Carter in part due to the Nixon fiasco and because Carter portrayed himself as a southern conservative then proved himself to be a marxist.

When Reagan came along he was a new kind of politician who spoke to the American people as equals. (A russian friend attributes that to the fall of the Berlin wall and collapse of the soviet union.) He told his story about the democrat party leaving him behind and didn't try to pretend it was some great earth shaking epiphany.

Romney is more akin to Bill Clinton. A political opportunist and scavenger who feels entitled to be president and doesn't really care what the American people want. The "man" couldn't even win Michigan in the primary without the party changing the rules the night after the vote.

The most pathetic thing is that Romney went on the attack for Santorum's "dirty tricks" of appealing to democrats on conservative issues. Meanwhile Romney was appealing to Detroit democrats on the most liberal issues he could find. My democrat sister said that Romney people came to her house 4 different times to tell her that Mitt defends her reproductive rights and won't leave the elderly and poor to die in the streets like that extremist Catholic Rick Santorum.

Rush: Romney is winning like a liberal

Its going to be a real treat watching the cattle when Mitt takes his turn to the hard left after the convention.

Well, Gray and pistolpacker, THIS pistol-shootin' conservative started a tally a few months ago, thinking at first that those of us like Jim Robinson, Gray, cripplecreek, and me who perceive how destructive, counterproductive, and dangerous a Romney presidency would be would number about 60 FReepers, a sad little minority, but I wanted to know how little.

I was amazed and heartened: that list is now nine shy of 300 FReepers, exceeding my expecations nearly five-fold, and considering that I haven't updated it for several weeks, odds are that the REAL number is closer to 400. Still, a minority, but hardly the paltry few you imagine.
