Voting starts today in New Hampshire in the first Republican primary. The drive by media is still trying to convince us that liberal former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is the preordained winner.
Can Romney win?
He can win New Hampshire. He might win the nomination. He will not win the general election.
The conservative base of the Republican Party will not come out for him. It does not matter that Romney can attract the establishment. The establishment may write him a lot of checks, but it is the conservatives who get out and are the boots on the ground. It is the conservative activists who get out and put the signs out. It is the conservatives who come in and man the campaign offices. It is the conservatives who take the time out of their lives to do phone banking.
On Tea Party Nation, we just finished a survey. The questions was, “If Mitt Romney is the GOP Nominee, I will:”
In short four out of ten members of the Tea Party, which is the conservative base of the Republican Party are not going to vote for Romney if he is the nominee.
When a candidate cannot even consolidate the support of his own base, how is he going to win the general election? The simply truth is Romney is such a flawed candidate he cannot win the general election.
I have received emails from people, some of them very nasty, saying if I do not support Romney, I am giving the election to Obama.
That is completely wrong.
By supporting Romney, you are giving the election to Obama.
Romney is a terrible politician. The only reason he has all of the experience he has in the private sector is because he could not get elected. He lost in 1994. In 2002, he ran for the governorship of Massachusetts. In that election, he could not get over half the vote. He only got 49%. His Democrat opponent only got 45%, with the rest being split among third parties. Romney’s approval ratings were so bad that he did not run for reelection.
So this is what the Republican establishment wants to give us. They want us to get behind a failed liberal politician who cannot consolidate the base. They want us to get behind a failed liberal politician who will be decimated in a general election against Barack Obama. In short, the establishment wants us to lose again.
These are the same geniuses who gave us John McCain last time.
The answer is simple. We need to say no. We need to consolidate behind one conservative who can beat the liberal Mitt Romney now and beat Barack Obama this fall.
Then Ron Paul is your only choice, his voting record speaks for itself !!!!
I think Newt is the one who can beat Obama
I agree Beth, everyone needs to read Newt's book "To Save America". They will learn in the first 35 pages (though they won't stop there) why this "one man think tank" should be the next president. They will have their eyes opened and be infuriated at the same time. Do it today! You and many others will be thankful you did.
I agree Beth.
Beth, it's time we all get a grip on reality. Obomney destroyed Newt in Iowa. Now Newt is trying to destroy Obomney and making little headway. What Obomney can do to Newt, Obominate can do better. Newt isn't going to cut it even if we get behind him.
That was then, MUG. Things have changed. Plus, Newt would wipe the floor with Odumbo in any debate, if Odumbo has nerve enough to participate without a teleprompter.
Also, disturbing news about Rick Santorum. Here's a quote from him and a link regarding it:
"This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don’t think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. You know, people should do whatever they want. Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that...".
Thank you for the link it was an eye opener.
Not just depressing, terrifying!
Let's face it. Paul is neither depressing nor terrifying, since he is not and never could be considered a serious contender. He's just the comic relief for the race.
Unfortunately, Romney wins, because the rest of the pack are even more depressing.
Hope Not! We can't take 4 more of Obominate. That's what an Obomney primary win would give us.
With all due respect, depressing is a lot better than scared out of our wits. Anybody but Obama!
