You're not going to vote for Romney out of patriotism or love of country. It's just an ego-fed CYA so you can tell yourself and others you did the best you could do.

Here's a more fitting analogy than your absurd and inaccurate plugged drain. Your family (the country) is going to be shot in front of you by a squad of riflemen. Your choice is will it be a squad of enemy riflemen or a squad of your own riflemen. If you pick your own you get to be part of the squad.

That is the most stupid statement I have read in awhile..

What the Hell have you been smoking?

I guess you are too stupid to read the whole thing(.and I am terrified that you ratted on me to the boss....wooo scarry)

...I wrote... ...even Newt said it well was a paraphrase of Newt comparing carter and Reagan....

here is the Newt quote....

“As for the presidency, I’m asked sometimes, is Mitt Romney conservative enough?” said Gingrich at a press conference in Arlington, Va., today. “And my answer is simple: compared to Barack Obama? You know this is not a choice between Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan. This is a choice between Mitt Romney and the most radical, leftist president in American history.”

“If you simply take judges and ask yourself, who are the kind of people Gov. Romney would be inclined to appoint and who are the kind of people we know Barack Obama appoints? The gap is as wide as in any point in American history,” said Gingrich. “I would argue it’s wider than between Reagan and Carter.”

“If you look at Romney’s pledge to cut spending, something which we’re going to cheerfully help him with,”

“So since Michelle Bachmann is such a POS Commie Pinko, who in congress are you able to even tolerate? She has helped promote the cause of freedom as more than anybody there, hurting her forward mobility through the ranks of leadership as a result. You are going to have to realize that they are all going to end up backing the GOP nominee. It is how it has been for time in memoriam.”

Yep. That’s pretty much how it works.

I sense that by election day, we are going to witness almost 100% of the Republicans in Congress — from the RINOiest RINOs to the most conservative Tea-Partiers — give Romney the nod, even if such noddin’ is done “with reservations”.

Those who fail to comprehend this reality are going to end up VERY disgruntled and disillusioned come this autumn.

(BTW, I voted for Newt in my state’s primary, for what good it did...)

Thanks guys, just sharing my own sentiments in this very difficult election cylce.

I pray to God in Heaven, and intend to work my heart out, to see that Obama is defeated and that we seat a House and Senate that can hold Romney to his promises so that this nation can turn around, away from the abyss that's staring us in the face.

I detail those sentiments on my own site: HERE

God's speed. It is a sad and sorry state of affairs, but one we can turn around if we all pull together at those various levels.

What are you talking about being anonymous??? and spewing veiled this what you have to resort to now.

It's been said, and these threads evidence as much get behind Romney you will not change him..."he will change you"..and to hear conservatives move to tactics such as Romneys is beyond unstanding.

I will say ‘fear’ is driving you exactly as it's moving good conservatives who should be able to identify that and the source it's coming from. This is no different than the Obama supporters when he was running. In fact it's worse because you DO know what Romney is!

We are voters, not hostages to “mass appeal”. The Obam/Gop/Democrat push to get Romney in front has succeeded....I could care less who people voted for before....that's history...they're done..... But to jump on the wagon of ABO, which is deliberately and meticulously designed to drive the masses, is insanity! and it's coming from Romney's group and Democrates as well as the GOP.

"Round them up and bring them in"... like one huge cattle drive...the Piper is choose to listen or not.....

....."A whole lotta Republicans are going to swing left right along with the Party's newest WINNER!... Judging by Romney's record and by the behavior of his core supporters, he is every bit as capable of tyranny and progressivism as Obama,... and rightly move as if he was authorized by Republican voters to be that way....... Romney is arrogant and ruthless. The real Romney is as risky as Obama...

I'm curious.......would you rather live in Sweden, or in the Soviet Union under Stalin?

(You do know that Obama has an enemies' list and will have no restraints if he gets reelected, don't you? And you know there's a pretty good chance that we're all on that list, right?)

Not saying there's going to be mass murder here, but your saying that there is no difference in the level of evil doesn't really stand up to the reality test.

IIRC, all the Republican candidates, (save for Ron Paul) pledged to endorse and support the eventual nominee but the nominee is not yet certified.

So why the rush to endorsement? Party unity?

We can argue the point that Romney is inevitable until the cows come home, but a lot can happen between now and the convention, when the nomination is certified.

I remain praying for Divine Intervention. Nothing, and I mean, nothing nothing, is set in cement.

I think Newt Gingrich was right to not endorse him in his magnificent speech yesterday.

Others of good intention and good will are free to endorse him for their own reasons, and my guess they're ABO, like Newt strongly suggested.

It's entirely obvious that Romney was NOT the favorite of Sarah Palin or any of his rivals. After all, the majority of his rivals were bona fide Conservatives, but also loyal to the GOP.

We remain a two party country. Romney is the worst possible candidate for Conservatives. This election will be a time of reckoning, provided he's the eventual nominee.

Keep praying. We're months away from *that* convention. Put your trust in Him. We need God to help us save our Republic.

Amen to that prayer. Your principles put the country first, something an astonishing amount of FReepers neglect to do lately. It would be amusing, if it were not so dangerously pathetic, how many here were willing to allow Bachmann, Newt, etc. run the country, but then turn around and think the same people are far too stupid to understand who else can run the country.

Veiled threats? LOL!

Let me splain. When you knowingly tell a lie, as you did in your last post to me, even though you post under a screen name, the Lord knows you lied. That's not a threat. It's Biblical. None of us is 'anonymous' before God.

Sorry, but once a person has taken liberties with the truth as you did above, the conversation is over. You know that I supported both Cain and Santorum (because you insulted me repeatedly for doing so), and you know I never supported Romney.

SO, barring an apology (public, or private), this conversation, and any in the future between us, is over. Truth is to important to me to waste time in discussions with people who toss it to the wind to 'win' a debate.

AMEN, Jeff!

We ALL need to be in prayer every day for this beloved country of ours. We are in desperate need for revival and a return to the principles on which we were founded.

And thanks for the link. I'll check that out.......after I get some fresh air!

(I pray that you are well, Jeff! You have survived an ordeal that would make most of us crumble. I admire you!)

“I have been here 14 years and understand pretty well what the site is about.”

I’ve been here 14 minutes and have confidence in JR’s mission statement without any individual’s interpretation or regurgitation. Keeps things simpler for us dim-witted n00bs all around. Probably why new people rarely get zotted ;^)

“Read the whole exchange if you are inclined. Or not.”

Not, honestly. If there was anything original Robos could use for argument, it would be headline news on fifty exultant identical threads. If any of you actually come up with something, we’ll know. Truly.

Beautiful day today btw :)

Heck, obama’s Chicago is an example of how his ilk create a irractable one-party corrupt system.

“He isn’t viable at all, that is an delusion. Obama will destroy him in the general.”

Look at it this way:

Romney is going to be the Republican nominee.
He may win, he may lose.

If he loses, that will be the last you hear of him insofar as presidential politics goes.

But if Romney HAD NOT been the nominee this year, he would have been “back again” at a later date, still trying to buy his way into the presidency.

He was always going to be there, until he either won or lost — a Harold Stassen with a fat wallet.

Better to get rid of him sooner, rather than drag it out.

Then again, stranger things have happened — he might just win.

This guy needs more airtime. Conservatives need to rally around the Constitution party, not the GOP

I was a Cain supporter, and then Santorum. Never Romney, so don’t lie about me, caww.

- - - - -
Yet you are supporting Romney now, so your statement holds no water.

If you want to sell your soul, and vote for a Liberal, go ahead. I am going to vote for a CONSERVATIVE and It ain’t Romney.

I see it as Mussolini versus Lenin. Early social corporatism versus communism.

They were both evil. I would not prefer either.

I agree wth JR’s misison statement too. Glad you are here, though it looks like somewhat more than 14 minutes. Nothing dim-witted about joing and participating in such a forum.

When unfounded personal assertions are made about others, or when individuals condescendingly take to “schooling” others, when it is so easy to check to see if it is well founded, that starts to drift that way, IMHO.

Not so nice a day here. Rain and in the fifties. But we’ll be better by Saturday and winter is over, and spring is on the rise. Got a lot of mowin’ to do.
