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.
VOTE FOR NEWT, the man to take Obama down.
Newt has a habit of going off the reservation and becoming star struck by Hollywood types(liberals) and Democrats like Pelosi and Hillary. He has voiced his belief in man made global warming. Today he is putting down capitalism when he complains about Romney. HE CAN"T BE TRUSTED.
He is complaining about Romney, not Capitalism!
We didn't jump into World War II early on, when we could have defeated Hitler.
We waited until the Japanese destroyed a major portion of our fleet at Pearl Harbor.
That delay cost us over 400,000 soldiers, killed in that war, not counting the soldiers from Australia, Canada, and our other allies.
There is a distinct advantage to the nation which stops aggressors early in the game.
Iraq cost us 4,400 lives, and then we backed out and lost the advantage we had so carefully developed.
Iraq is in turmoil, and it is our fault for leaving, just when Iraq is so vulnerable.
Obama has played right into the hands of the Taliban.
Nobody likes war, but 4,400 lives lost is a whole lot better than 400,000 lives lost.
Because the candidates can't be everywhere, in all 50 states, at the same time, in order to carry on their face-to-face campaigns.
Your idea would force them all to pay a fortune for simultaneous TV campaigns in all 50 states.
Do you want to pay for that, or what?
I want something that "Accomodates the Purpose of we the people not the damn political party". "Private Political Parties have nothing to do with the CONSTITUTIONAL PROCESS OF NOMINATION AND ELECTION"......contray to popular belief !
Political parties exist because people want to join up in tribes to multiply their power.
Your private dreams and wishes will not change how the system really works.
Political parties are here to stay -- learn to live with it, or die trying to change it or shape it into your private wishes.
I hope that he does not win the Nomination! Why,-- irregardless of what or what he has not done! He has Natural Born issues just as Prez bam obummer! The GOP is no better than the Communist Dem Party if they allow this unvetted candidate onto the Presidential ticket! It doesn't end their either Rick Santorum is in the same boat! How do you like them apples for our GOP PARTY!
"The GOP is no better than the Communist Dem Party if they allow this unvetted candidate onto the Presidential ticket!"
You sound like a kid on a grammar school play yard, making up awful-sounding nonsense to play big shot.
The GOP may not be "perfect", but it's certainly not like the Dems, who wil lie, cheat and steal in order to gain a victory.
Grow up and stop the childish rhetoric.
