Skip to comments.The day the tea party embraces Mitt Romney is the day the tea party accepts defeat

First there was the Reagan Revolution, then Newt's Republican Revolution, and now the Tea Party Revolution.
In each successive revolution, the lovers of liberty threw off a bit more of the yoke of the oppressive ruling class to reestablish some vital part of our God given liberty and freedom.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Ronald Reagan set and accomplished the goal of bringing down the socialist Soviet Union as a threat to the world and reestablished free America as the dominate superpower. He rescued America from the hapless Jimmy Carter who had dragged the nation down into to the depths of despair. Reagan taught us that our best years were indeed yet to come. He reinvigorated our economy by reducing government regulations and taxes and created a free market environment ripe for capitalism to flourish. A lover of life and freedom, he fought off the socialists and merchants of doom and death at every turn and sparked the beginning of the decades long Reagan Economy. He was a champion of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and he delivered us from evil.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Reaganite, Newt Gingrich, set and accomplished the major goal of wresting the congressional majority away from the socialist Democrats who had held it for forty years. His conservative Republican Revolution cut the taxes, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut unemployment, blocked President Clinton's progressive agenda, blocked HillaryCare, reformed welfare, defended life, and balanced the budget four years running, ensuring that the Reagan Economy flourished and stretched throughout his term and beyond.
Mitt Romney set goals of protecting and sustaining abortion as safe and legal in America. He sought to be more radical than Ted Kennedy in respects to "gay rights." He swore to defend Massachusetts' strict gun-control laws that "kept us safe" and promised not to chip away at them. He set and accomplished the goal of bringing big government healthcare solutions to his state and mandating that all formerly free citizens must purchase a government approved product or suffer a tax penalty. He loves mandates against the people.
He stated that he was an independent during Reagan-Bush and he was not returning to Reagan-Bush. And he didn't. Instead, he delivered taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun-control, socialized healthcare, busted budgets, ruined economy, liberal activist judges and a destroyed Republican label.
Romney was and is demonstrably per record an anti-Reagan, pro-big government, pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-gun-control, anti-liberty, pro-socialist healthcare, mandate-loving, liberal judge appointing, budget busting progressive.
He is without a doubt the exact opposite of Reagan, Gingrich, the Reagan Revolution, the Republican Revolution and the Tea Party Revolution.
If the Tea Party now embraces Romney, it will have accepted defeat and surrendered to the ruling class.
There is a reason why the elite establishment GOPers are pushing the anti-Reagan Romney and rejecting the pro-life, Reaganite Newt Gingrich. And I guarantee you, it's not in the best interest of the Tea Party or the Liberty we seek.
Not on my watch!! No Romney, no way!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
Until we get a candidate who is believable, consrvative and likeable, the country will remain divided and volnerable. Herman Cain was that man, and they knew it, so they shot him down with viscious lies and death threats. Obama won re-election on December 3!
“this is the guv of S.C”
Ooops—I’m so angry at her, I can’t think straight.
Amen. I will never, ever, EVER vote for socialist RINO Romney.
Jim clearly you and I were on the same wavelength. See my post that I wrote about 15 seconds before yours.
Before its over Romney will be the anti Romney
Well, thanks for surrendering before the fight even begins. /s
Excellent reply to FReeper waynelusvardi!
Romney is a slimy, worm-infested traitor to social conservatism, just like McCain.
They're insidious leopards who pretend to change their spots -- but they can't!!
Agreed. A B O. My business can’t survive another term f this commie disaster.
Newt or Romney even Ron Paul—who sleeps in the White House isn’t as important as taking the House and Senate—It needs to be a tea party Congress! First Congress, then the state houses! and the Media—then the White House—and then THE WORLD! Today the pits, tomorrow the wrinkles—Sunsweet marches on!
> What the Tea Party needs is to pack the Congress with like minded conservatives.
Excellent point and one that bears repeating.
I’m not spending anything on the Presidential race. The field ranges from iffy to horrible. I’m saving my bucks to spend on Congressional races where we have a chance to turn the tide.
I suggest we all do the same. Congress is where we can override Zer0 or a capitulating RINO.
Count on it!
Whatever it takes to pander...
I remember a time not too long ago when Ann Coulter was welcomed at FR; there are still pictures of her with FR members somewhere back in the archives. But here she is, solidly in bed with Romney and the other northeastern RINO’s/liberals.
Whether its her love of Chris Cristie (She likes an obese person? Add their two weights together and divide by two and you have that of a normal person) or what, I don’t know. But she has abandoned conservative principles and now joins those who shun Newt and other Tea Party conservatives. Besides the above linked article, she appeared on O’Reilly’s show last night to hammer home her conversion. Even Rudy (whose fate on here we know) has defended Newt which shows how far out in the Boston tide flats Romney has walked.
There is something weird about her IMO...before she did this. She doesn’t impress me.
And this just in via email:
If we all vote right in 2012, this is something we can all look forward to in 2013:
One sunny day in January, 2013, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench.
He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”
The Marine looked at the man and said, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here.”
The old man said, “Okay,” and walked away. The following day the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”
The Marine again told the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer President and no longer resides here.”
The man thanked him and again just walked away. The third day the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U.S. Marine, saying,
“I would like to go in and meet with President Obama. “The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said,
“Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Don ‘t you understand?”
The old man looked at the Marine and said, “Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”
The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, “See you tomorrow, Sir
I’ve yet to contribute to any candidate. Once we have an acceptable nominee, I expect that to change.
“He was a pagan ruler who became a Christian and made Christianity the official religion of the Eastern part of the Roman Empire when Christians became the largest religion.”
Great. I hope Romney does indeed become a Christian someday. I’ll consider him then, assuming it appears outwardly that he has had a true conversion.
Giving him authority, power, money and votes won’t convert him from the mormon cult. It will reinforce his attitude of superiority.
BTW, I can’t see any way Mitt is like Constantine except the early pagan part.
Romney owns nothing except the DNC. Obama will win that race.
I love it! :)
“Advice: Vote for a Republican Senate and then vote for Romney.”
Your advise is worthless, but consistent with what Faux News, the republican establishment, the democrats and Obama would want the People to believe.
Voting for Romney will guarantee an Obama victory and the loss of our country.
GO NEWT GO........
