What else can you say about the Republicans? The chief criteria for nominating someone seems to be can we pick the guy most likely to lose in November?
Last Thursday, John Roberts had managed to do what no one else could do. He had gotten the Tea Party and conservatives behind Mitt Romney.
Now, Romney has managed to blow it.
How is Romney managing to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory?
Romney, though his surrogate Eric Ferhnstrom, the same guy who uttered the famous etch a sketch line in the primaries, came out and said Obama is right. The Obamacare tax is not a tax.
Famed pollster Scott Rasmussen said that conservative anger over Obamacare was hitting the stratosphere. What does Romney do? He sends out his surrogate who announces that Romney agrees with Obama.
Today in the National Journal, Josh Kraushaar was even more explicit about the Romney campaign. He said the Romney campaign was declaring a cease-fire on an issue that is potent to the Republican base.
Earth to Republican Party: You are about to nominate an idiot.
Obamacare is a tax. While John Roberts did not do the right thing and sold us out, he did do something. By declaring it a tax, he put it right into the Republicans’ wheelhouse.
Conservatives are not going to sit idly by this time. We have had it. The RINO wing of the Party shoved Romney down our throats. We were going to line up behind him, especially after the Supreme Court ruling on the Obamacare tax and what does Romney do?
He commits ritual political suicide.
It is painfully obvious that Romney will not repeal Obamacare. It is painfully obvious Romney is a liberal. Eric Fuhrnstrom all but announced that back when he made his famous etch a sketch comment.
There is still time to stop this insanity.
We have not worked so hard to simply put a guy into that office who is going to change the name of Obamacare, make a few minor, cosmetic changes and then try to put lipstick on that pig and sell it to us.
If the Republican Party goes ahead and nominates Mitt Romney, it is committing political suicide.
The Tea Party is ready to walk.
In a piece in Breitbart.com, Joel Pollack said those very words.
Pollack told Romney to quit if he was not going to go all in to repeal Obamacare. Romney will not quit. His ego is too big. It is up to the delegates to save the Republican Party.
It is time for a revolt.
I have said I would go to the polling place with a large and cold bottle of Pepto-Bismol, a stomach distress bag and pull the lever for Romney, praying I don’t vomit all over the voting machine.
Last Thursday, I was even considering getting a Romney sticker because of the Supreme Court decision.
Now, if this is how Romney is going to act, I’m not even sure I will vote for him. What is the difference between him and Obama? If the Obamacare tax survives, we will see an economic collapse like none of us have ever seen.
The Obamacare tax is the issue that unites conservatives. If Romney is going to blow this issue off, he is an idiot. This tells us what he will do as President.
We had better get to work saving the Senate and the House, because no matter who wins the election this fall, we have lost.
If telling the truth means I am a bigot, then I am.
Thomas I beg to differ with you. MORMONS ARE CHRISTIANS! Who are you to judge?
I see you did not read any of the links that where presented to you a while back. Let me ask you this, according to a Mormon, how do they attain their salvation? Do they believe that they can become gods? Do they believe they can be baptize for the dead? Do they believe that Lucifer and Jesus are brothers and that we are all descendants for one of those?
Now answer what the Bible says about those subjects.
Thomas, I agree with you. But for some people the old statement is true: There is none so blind as he (or she) who refuses to see.
If you board the wrong train, it is no use running along the corridor in the other direction. Dietrich Bonhoeffer
You sound like a liberal troublemaker to me.
Debrajoe - Mormons do not worship Jesus Christ as our Messiah & their basic premise of eternity is they "become" a god by living "right" - exactly to opposite of what orthodox Christianity teaches.
So my question is "how" can they be Christians?
Mormons are absolutely NOT Christians. Just because they espouse ethics or practice moral behavior that coincides with orthodox Christianity does not make them Christian.
OK Edward you do that...You go ahead and give obama the next four years.. Some of you that think
we can start with a new candidate are drinking this koolaid. Four months and if you split the ticket now
you will elect the rat in the W.H. Then you shall all cry, but too late.
Carolyn, Hamilton, I never voted for him in the first place. Did you? If Romney says he will not undo what Obama has done, what's the point voting.
Carolyn, firstly you didn't answer my question. Did you vote for Obama? Second I never mentioned splitting the ticket by voting for a 3rd party. I simply said why vote for the same thing with just a different name.
Sorry I did not answer you immediately.. I do have other things to do but listen to you.
I DID NOT VOTE FOR THE RAT...I would never have voted for him. If you don't vote you are giving
a vote to obama.
The truth is that Obamacare is not a tax and everyone knows it, but are calling it a tax since Roberts deemed it to be a tax. Unfortunately, Furhnstrom messed up and the left are taking off with it as usual. The left always behaves this way and I really don't care what they say. They lie left and right, what's new. But people who hate Obamacare are going to vote for Romney, regardless of Furhnstrom---I know I am. Romney has said he'd repeal Obamacare and he'll be held accountable. He must be held accountable! Obama will not repeal Obamacare, GUARANTEED! To not vote for Romney, you will without a doubt put Obama in office and be guaranteed Obamacare, forever. Romney will have to do for the next 4 years. He is better than Obama. I am not quitting!! I don't like what Furhnstrom said any more than you do, but we need to get past Furhnstrom and focus on the bigger picture. I wish we did have Newt or Cain, but we don't and it is too late for another candidate now. We must stay united behind Romney---the next 4 years will be better under Romney than Obama. We must vote for Romney!!
