Skip to comments.Romney has become all things to all voters. A chicken in every pot, be it Tea Party or not...

Where's Waldo? No, where's Romney.
Who knows where he will be or what political position he will change or pivot on. On one page you look for Waldo, er, I mean Romney, and you find him among a crowd of Tea Partiers, on the next page he is standing among a crowd of moderates, and then on yet another page he is hanging out with Democrats!
Romney will without reservation repeal OdumbaCare! Now he likes the idea of keeping the policy of covering pre-existing conditions, and likes the idea of extending to age 26 staying on the parent(s) health insurance. Who knows what else and how much he will pivot on and decide to keep.
Romney signed a pledge for a federal constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Then later says that the states should decide.
Romney goes hard core on the issue of illegal immigration, then recently says that he likes Obama's position on not deporting certain illegals who meet a certain criteria and who came here at a certain age. True conservatives were not pleased.
All of this is but the tip of the iceberg. Many threads on far more political positions and Romney's reversals on them have been posted. Rinolist.org - check it out.
The book "Morris Dictionary of Word and Phrase Origins" is a must for every bookshelf. If you peruse its pages, you will find a certain comment from a certain person who said that there are times when some politicians feel the need to rise above convictions.
Romney apparently has felt that need.
Virgil Goode for president and all R's down ballot? Does that sound too bad? Everyone votes as they will. It is up to each to decide.
Hopefully there will be more Tea Partiers in the House and Senate, with the GOP controlling the House and Senate. Even if Romney wins, he (being a RINO at heart) will end up fighting with elected Tea Partiers on a host of issues, thus weakening the Tea Party, as the MSM will side with a RINO over the Tea Party.
But if Romney doesn't win... a clear distinction between the Tea Party in the House and Senate with Obama's policies - would that be a bad thing?
Is there an issue, or issues more important to you than other issues?
Well, never fear... Whatever that political issue pot might be there is a chicken in your pot - be you Tea Party or not.
I’m not interested in giving Obama the chance to appoint another Supreme Court justice.
Stick a fork in yourself, you’re done.
Not to compare Romney to Reagan, but I seem to remember Reagan talking to the very conservative, the moderates, and the so-called “Reagan Democrats”. I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but pandering to only one group results in electoral defeat in most cases on the national level. The idea is to build a broad coalition of voters who either like you, or like you more than the other guy.
President Obama appreciates your support.
I may not like everything about Mr. Romney, but I like him a whole lot better than 0.
Don’t tell me, let me guess: YOU’RE Gloria Allred’s “October Surprise”.
Somehow I expected something more exciting and compelling.
>Virgil Goode for president and all R’s down ballot? Does that sound too bad?
Not buying your pro-Obama crap.
I am a one issue voter. Obama Must Go!
We can deal with President Romney later.
Me neither. I also don’t like the idea of more failed ideas from Obama.I will work to provide my own chicken. Just get the government out of the way so I can do it.
There are even reasons BEYOND politics, for which Obama has to go.
>> I am a one issue voter. Obama Must Go!
heh heh. I smell a tagline.
Those are all minor details to be sorted out later.
The main focus of this election is:
Muslim or Mormon.
I look horrible in a burqua.
Then there’s the Military.
Our Leader HAS to respect them.
bozo hates them.
“All this for a flag?”
My spotted dog has a better chance than Virgil Who.
Hope you didn’t post this hoping the nobama campaign would pay you later. Everyone, yes even you, know your boy Virgil is not going to make it AND most importantly any vote for Virgil is a vote to keep nobama heading us over the cliff.
You are a self-important person who imagines himself more righteous, conservative and principled than the rest of us, who recognize that America may well not survive four more years of Obama and his Communist agenda.
When Obama appoints so many more lefty judges that America will never recover, and your grandchildren are guaranteed a lifetime of slavery and financial ruin, please come back and remind us and them what a genius you were.
You will then receive the contempt and ridicule shortsighted fools such as yourself so richly deserve.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
At no time has Romney waded in with Tea Partiers. He kept his distance and vice versa. After the primary, most tea partiers realized he’s our only shot at ending the Obamanation. Romney has presented a plan that aligns with many tea party goals - reduced spending, debt and deficit reduction, tax reform, etc. Your entire assessment is bunk. Romney is a moderate right politician, and has not at any time in this election cycle pretended to be anything else. He’s a smart, accomplished man, and will serve our country well.
What you said!
No chickens in Obama’s pot.
