A Wasilla Sombrero Birdcage *PING*
Romney and Co, hate the Right with a passion.
Why would we “work with him to defeat Obama”?
Why would he even expect conservatives to help him defeat the left, when leftwing Rinos have actively worked WITH Dems to defeat us?
We don’t want a leftwing government, why would we vote for leftwing Romney?????
Romney’s gun barrel is bent around to point at his own posterior. What can he attack Obama on that will not come back to hurt him (from his own comments?)
Health Care? Romneycare
Global Warming? Nope
Taxes disguised as fees? Nope
Social issues? Nope
Even spending, illegal immigration, and cutting government have Romney quotes to be used by party D in the gunfight: Soros and the media.
A vanity so well crafted is scarcely deserves the term...
Well reasoned and well said. The call to action is where we will now see whether the 3rd party in the standoff chooses to fight, or simply surrender in frustration.
Well, I didn’t want to spoil the thread saying that we have no choice but Romney. But I agree that we somehow have to get together and find a solution.
The problem with the Tea Party—as well as it’s strength—is that there is no central leadership. Somebody needs to rally the troops. Maybe Sarah is the one.
Either we manage to deadlock the convention and head Mitt off at the pass, or we need to somehow agree on a candidate that will pull the so-called social conservatives and the libertarians together.
You can’t have one without the other, but the RINOs and the Dems have certainly done a great job of playing on their differences and splitting the conservative vote. Again and again and again.
You can’t have fiscal sanity without moral sense and Christian values. Freedom requires self-discipline, which can come only from religion freely chosen, as history has proven. And you can’t have a return of morality as long as big government is increasingly in charge and busy corrupting the people to maintain its power.
My own feeling is that the GOP is defunct and hopeless, and that we need a new party. But if the delegates at the convention can somehow throw off the yoke of corruption and do the right thing, that would be fine with me!
But Romney is a lying, self-loving, gay-activist, big-government babykiller. I simply cannot vote for someone like that, not even if Obama is even worse.
My future efforts will go to winning control of the senate and holding the house.
Extremely well written, good job.
However, I simply do not see how Obama is going to be on the Democrat ticket.
The reason? A number of States have already passed new laws, that are now on their books, requiring every candidate for president to prove their natural born status.
Obama can’t do this - nothing he’s evidenced meets the legal qualification. And if you want a one-stop shopping experience about the subject, just look up Sheriff Joe.
Now, his lawyers might argue that as a sitting president, his natural born status is presumed to be valid. But - that’s not what the State laws say. They say - show it. And sitting president or not, how is it a problem if it exists?
Then there’s the problem with his admittance that his father was not an American citizen, which nixes the deal right there, no matter where he was born.
Yeah, he’ll sue - but how can he win?
And one more thing - if he goes down, Hillary is the de facto Democrat candidate. With all of this against Obama, do you really think she’ll let him slide on this issue again? Especially when all she’d have to do is beat Romney?
Her people are the ones who have pushed the birther subject all along - this in an established fact. And it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if she’s also behind the Romney campaign. Why? Because she knows she can beat him, just the way she knew she could beat McCain - and McCain and Romney know it too - they know their job is to split the conservatives out of the Republican Party, divide the votes, and lose.
So I just don’t see that it will be Obama-Romney. If anything, it will be Hillary-Romney, which Hillary will win.
Unless there’s a brokered convention.
Then it could be Hillary versus Palin.
And Palin would win.
Kudos for an excellent screed, GW! Very well laid out.
Does anyone have a link to it?
