Romney vs Mitch Daniels in 2012? (Vanity Discussion)
Me | 07/03/09 | Me

Posted on 07/03/2009 2:12:24 PM PDT by GOPGuide

Sanford has committed sepuku on live TV.

Ensign has discovered what goes on in Vegas does not always stay in Vegas.

Palin is retiring from politics.

Haley Barbour is a former lobbyist who runs the poorest state in the Union.

Huckabee is a 5th stringer.

John Thune is running for Vice President and we have no idea whether General Petraeus is a conservative or not.

It looks like the only guy who can stop the Mitt Machine is Daniels.

If you don't like Daniels, then Romney is the nominee by default in 2012.

I do not believe Palin is retiring from politics in the least.

I listened to her entire announcement. It was honorable, it was direct, and it punctuated the insane politics of our day...it also punctuated her personal commitment to fight, and to do so when it would not distract further from her job as Governor and the foundation she has built there.

I am proud of her and support her. She is a great American.

I think Sarah has just turned, like a fed-up mama Bear, on her detractors. She has put things in order, she has left them in the hands of capable people, and she has now turned to face her enemies directly.

...and I think they are going to be sorry. We have smelled the fear in them for a long time. Good on her!

I believe she will assist others greatly in 2010, and will run herself in 2012...and she has my full support.

GO SARAH GO!

Palin is retiring from politics.

That's not at all what she said in her speech.

Sarah Palin has effectively just taken herself out of the running. Governor Sanford did that last week. The field now narrows to Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich. Barring the emergence of some dark horse, it now looks like it's Romney's to lose. I think he will manage to lose it if he cannot find it within himself to express the real fear growing in the land that Obama is wrecking the country

Newt Gingrich is demonstrating daily on television that he gets it and that he can deliver the message. Romney sounds like a politician from a cycle ago which might as well be a century ago. Newt gets it but it is not clear that Romney does. Romney must understand that every rule of the game has changed because of Obama. He must act as though he understands that business as usual is fatal. He must understand that Obama must be morally destroyed if the republic is to be saved.

Newt can deliver the message but the messenger carries a lot of baggage. Romney's main deficiency, the stigma of rinoism, can only be overcome by becoming the figure who morally destroys Obama. He must show that he has the courage and the fire to take Obama on. He must convince us that he understands that it is Obama or us. He must convince us that we are at a flashpoint of history and the whole country is literally at stake.

Ditto.

Romney is not winnable, he is the same old, same old that we’ve had before.

Pawlenty, Barbour, and Daniels would be good alternatives to Romney. At least those 3 guy completed 2 full terms as governor.

Two draft dodgers, draft evaders, or just two limp-Richards too good to serve in uniform while men their age were fighting and dying. How disgusting.

The better question in my opinion is, who would win in a fight between Batman and Spiderman?

Other's will see to that. And her decision today will give them all the ammunition they need.

The way things have conspired to help Mitt Romney is almost “24” in its level of believability. If it was a plot twist on a TV show I would’ve said “Oh come on! Seriously?”

I guess Romney’s four husky sons will be available to campaign with him, since none of them will be deployed anywhere (just like Dad...and Grandpa in their time).

Romney is no conservative. And anyone considering supporting Romney needs to have their head examined. Anyone around this forum, I should say.

And Mitch Daniels is no conservative either.

You are posting another vanity on this Daniels guy in News?

Even you admit the guy is not socially conservative, he sounds like another send up from the moderate wing of the Rockefeller branch of the GOP.

Palin is retiring from politics.

Nonsense. You haven't seen her speech. She made clear that she won't quit the fight for America's future.

He’s the Eddie Haskell of politics. Manipulative lying bottom feeder.

You said — If you don’t like Daniels, then Romney is the nominee by default in 2012.

Well, it definitely won’t be Romney on Free Republic, at least... LOL...


Unlike Romney’s “National Council for a New America,” Free Republic is a conservative site!

If there is anyone here who doesn’t understand why we cannot support a slick socialist politician like Mitt Romney, God help you, but you’re on the wrong website. We went through this with the abortionist, gay rights activist, illegal alien supporting, gun grabbing Rudy Giuliani until someone created another website call WAnkers for Rudy and they all flew the coop. Hopefully, before too much FReeper blood is shed, someone will create a WAnkers for Romney site and we can be left to fight the good fight as we see fit!

FR is not for everyone!


Any other questions... :-)
