As conservatives now lament the now probable nomination of Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee for President, one question on the minds of conservatives is, did Romney really mean what he said or was he just saying what he thought he needed to say?
Unfortunately, I fear we are about to discover a terrible fact. I fear we are in fact going to discover that Romney simply said what he thought he needed to. Romney has managed to get the nomination basically without the support of the Tea Party movement and without mainstream conservatives.
Romney will not win this fall without the support of conservatives. In a recent survey on Tea Party Nation, a quarter of those surveyed said they would not vote for Romney in the fall election.
The election this fall is going to be close. The Party of Treason will be getting every dead person they can out to vote and in other places people will be voting early and often. Romney may have been able to win the nomination without appealing to the Tea Party and to conservatives, but he had better start to get conservatives in his corner as soon as he can.
How can he do this?
Here is a start. Commit that by January 1, 2014, he will have $1 a gallon gas.
First, let’s start with the basics. Romney himself cannot give us $1 a gallon gas. But he and a Republican Congress can create the environment where it is possible.
Has anyone been paying attention to Obama? Just in case no one has noticed, he is not afraid of anything Rick Santorum has said. He is not afraid of anything Mitt Romney has said. The only thing he has worried about is Newt Gingrich when he started talking about $2.50 a gallon gas.
If anything, Newt was not ambitious enough. Regardless, that was what Obama attacked. Why? Because he knows that is his vulnerability.
People are screaming at $4 a gallon gas right now. What does anyone think will happen when gas hits $5 a gallon.
Not only is this a winning issue for the election, it is a winning policy.
Does anyone remember 2008? Gas prices shot to well over $4 a gallon. Does anyone remember what George W. Bush did? He revoked an executive order prohibiting off shore drilling. That was purely symbolic act, as a law would have to be repealed to allow off shore drilling, but it was enough. Gas prices fell to $1.60 a gallon in some areas by the time George W. Bush left office.
Barack Obama’s first act as President was to reinstate the executive order banning off shore drilling and gas prices have gone up ever since then.
Can you imagine what would happen if we had a President committed to $1 a gallon gas? If he were willing to do what it takes to allow new drilling, new refining and getting the Department of Job Destruction and Poverty Creation, otherwise known as the Environmental Protection Agency out of the way of American energy production?
If we dropped the price of gas down to $1 a gallon, there would be a huge economic stimulus. A staggering drop in the price of gas could help quickly end the Great Obama Depression.
So here is the question for Mitt Romney. Are you a liberal or are you a conservative? Are you willing to prove it? Are you willing to step out with a daring plan that will captivate America and disarm Obama?
That is the question. America waits for your answer Mitt Romney.
That's an interesting perspective Alexia.
You know, I'm glad Romney's wife has two Cadillacs that HE BOUGHT FOR HER.
He has his own money. He doesn't need to rob us like those welfare hoes we have in the White House now.
They've been vacationing and partying hard on our money for the last 3 years.
Everytime I see the 0bamas on tv, I imagine I hear the song for the Jefferson's...We're Moving On Up.
Sorry, I would not believe him now no matter what he says. If he wins the presidential nomination the presidential race has lost my vote has lost my vote. If he wins the tea party better work hard for Congress and forget about the president.+ I am done doing the bidding of the elitists in the Republican Party If they want to win the Presidency with their hand picked money person then they will have to figure out how to win with out me.
If you don't vote for the GOP nominee...then you vote for 0bama. If you vote for 0bama, you're not a conservative.
When are all the babies going to stop throwing temper tantrums and see what they did to us when they didn't vote for McCain.
Infantile characters...that's what all of you 'independents' have who aren't voting for the GOP nominee.
Alexia remembers when 'independents" called Ronald Reagan a liberal or moderate. Dang...I have a great memory.
Democrats win by taking one small victory at a time. Conservatives lose because we have a bunch of "infantile characters" who want the entire victory (their way or no way) now or nothing at all.
We usually get nothing at all. How did that work for us in the last election, huh?
George Washington and John Adams.
George Washington and John Adams did nothing unConstitutional.
George Washington was given to America as a gift from God. Had he decided to be King we would all be bowing down to 0bama now....
I have a question that I hope you can answer. Why did Patrick Henry have it in for James Madison? I am aware of Henry's attempts to keep Madison from public office but I've yet to find out why? This is a sincere question.
I think the only way Romney will win the conservatives is to prove that he will indeed repeal the Healthcare bill, open drilling, attack and get down gas prices. He is not liked at all, he seems fake and not to be beleived. He has an air of smugness about him. He is not the middle class and winning them would require some real efforts on his part. I see why Santorum is staying in he see the people and listens to them. He see we don't trust Romney and won't. So for him to win he has many obstacles to get over. We of course won't vote Obama but Romney will need some extra special handling to get any one to trust him.
Stand your ground and let the chips fall where they may or we will never get the CHANGE we the people want.
Over and Over I have heard Conservative Republicans say " Anyone BUT Obama". Now I hear if Romney is picked we will not vote for him. Well isn't he someone other than Obama ?. We need to get the Congress into order and hopefully they can keep Romney in line if he wins the primary. Romney is not my man. But I do not want Obama again. I have heard from the Ron Paul supporters that if Romney wins they will not vote. Well personally I do not think they are Republicans anyway, they are independents using the Republican machine. Ron Paul is getting ready for his son to run in 2016. If my man wins ( I like Santorum) I will back him with all that's in me. IF Romney wins I will back him with all that's in me. LETS GET THIS STRAIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO, NO. NO OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Start working for those local Republicans, and others who are conservative and running for office.
Newt established the fact that "THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS HAVE THE POWER TO HAVE GAS IN THE USA AT $2.50......NOW ! "
THE PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS "ACT AS IF THEY ARE INNOCENT BYSTANDERS....ALONG WITH THE REST OF US" ! THEY HAVE THE POWER TO "CHANGE THIS MONETARY CRISIS, ENERGY CRISIS, ETC." BUT, THAT WILL COST "BLUE CHIPS" OF WHICH NONE OF THEM SPEAK (EVEN NEWT). THE "UGLY LIE" THEY ALL PROTECT IS THAT THEY "KEEP THEIR POWER BY APPEASING THE PEOPLE WITH THE REAL POWER" ! THEREFORE, IF THEY PLACE THE RESTRICTION ON "AMEIRCAN OIL COMPANIES" THAT KEEPS "OIL FROM BEING AN "ITEM OF SPECULATION" OR BEING TAXED AS AN EXPORT...THIS IS GOING TO CUT INTO THE PROFITOF WALL STREET AND OIL COMPANIES...THEREFORE THEY ARE HAVING TO "OFFEND" THEIR CONTRIBUTORS (UNDER THE TABLE CONTRIBUTORS...MANY TIMES...WHICH IMPLICATED THEM ALL....IN CRIMES THAT HAVE NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS !
THIS "EVIL WEB" THAT THEY ALL HAVE BEEN A PART OF WEAVING FOR MANY YEARS KEEPS THE "SHAKERS AND MOVERS QUIET...EVEN WHEN IT WOULD BENEFIT THEM TO DO IN THE SHORT TERM...in the long term they would have to "Pay the Piper".
What is very disturbing is that Obama is now ahead of Romney in the polls, only because Romney is slipping among conservatives. I actually heard two reputable Dem. analysts speaking on Fox today, saying that Romney has about 60 days (June) to turn this around. If he does not, we will not only lose the election but very possibly the House and Senate, implying, unless someone replaces Romney--in June. Obviously, Newt and Santorum are not the guys to do this---someone else, who can fire up people. The GOP needs to look at this hard in June----we cannot lose this election! GOP WAKE UP!!!
