Another one to cross off my TEA Party approved candidate. I’m sure he’ll get the VP nod since Rubio keeps saying he doesn’t want the job.

Pathetic.

Obama wins re-election and conservatives get screwed by the Establishment once again after handing them the keys to the kingdom one more time only to watch them throw it all away again…Dole, McCain, now Romney.

When are conservatives going to not be taken for granted anymore??? How are we being treated any different than black American in the democrat party???

“A sellout is someone who has discarded his or her original principles. The sellout usually does an about turn from his or her previous views in order to make money or to become more commercially acceptable to the public. The term is most commonly associated with certain groups of people. Politicians are often described as sellouts. Their views and policies often change according to how large or small their voting percentage is.” Doing this is their way of saying, come on peasants, we know what’s best. Romney was next in line, we promised it to him in 2012, we get to decide who the nominee will be. The Bushes, Rubio, Ryan, have coronated him, so let’s just call off the rest of the primary. We know what’s best for you little people. Just follow us. And the drones, dutifully follow. I listened to an older man call Mark Levin last… Read more »

7 Techniques of Propaganda 1- Testimonial: an association between a respected or authoritative person and the cause. The hope is that the respected person will lead others to follow his ideas. 2- Plain Folks: convince the audience that the spokesman is like them and shares their woes and concerns. 3- Bandwagon: capitalize on the human drive to be part of a crowd, a member of the winning team. Creating the illusion that widespread support exists, so those on the fence will join the cause. If they refuse, this technique makes them feel isolated. 4- Name Calling: Using negative or discriminatory words to create suspicion and prejudice. 5- Glittering Generalities: Slogans and catchphrases invovling ideas of love, honor, glory, peace, family values, freedom, patriotism.

Too bad he now thinks Romney will get the delegates needed and has no doubt about people rallying around him- if he did, maybe he’d be endorsing Santorum at this time, who has enough contests won under the rules for a brokered convention, provided Romney doesn’t get the 1,144.

You obviously did not read a word I said, and you are becoming repetitive besides. You still haven’t answered my question: do you listen to Glenn Beck much?

Newt is head and shoulders, IMO, above the rest. I’m just not content to end all this without the opportunity for this to play out. There are still a number of states that haven’t had their own primaries, and believe you me, they want their day to vote, too.

On to the convention! PLEASE check out these links. I looked at your Huffington Post links (great source).

I don’t listen to Glenn Beck at all, actually.

Someone directed me to politjim before, but the story it sent me to looked like a conspiracy theory that sounded pretty wild and was not well documented with facts to back it up. Perhaps there are other stories on there with better journalism, but with that impression, I don’t care to visit the site again.

Huffington Post could still get in trouble if they inaccurately quoted Newt, despite them being a liberal news source.

Scoop, I agree whole-heartedly with your assessment that you wrote on the other post that you linked to. I was checking out Rubio’s page on Facebook yesterday, and it’s disgraceful to watch fellow conservatives throwing him under the bus. To me, it’s not a disagreement on policy, but a disagreement on who can put forth that policy best. So it’s a bit concerning to me seeing conservatives who decide they want Romney as pres being treated like RINOs, when clearly they are not.

Still, Santorum is my guy to the end.

Romney is a Progressive. He believes that government is the answer. Ignoring that will not make him a conservative, Politicians lie. The media covers for Progressive politicians who lie.

He will govern and act as he has done his whole life. Putting an (R) after his name did not change that in Massachusetts, it will not change that in the White House.

Remember the marxist we elected who everyone convinced themselves would “govern to the middle”.

“To me, it’s not a disagreement on policy, but a disagreement on who can put forth that policy best.” ———————————————————————————————— Whose policy? Mitt Romney’s or conservative’s? Need I remind you that Romney has already put forth policies and they are LIBERAL. It is unbelievable for people like Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Ann Coulter, etc, to expect conservatives to ignore this fact. It is unthinkable that they are asking us to embrace another progressive liberal on the basis of nothing more than his conservative rhetoric. Well, I’m not going to.

Obviously conservative policy. You have both Rubio and Ryan endorsing Mitt. They both want to reduce the size of government. They feel that Romney is best to put forth the policy that they want to pursue. Obviously I disagree with them, but if they are endorsing someone, it is because they think it advances what they would like to see happen with government.

I say they’re wrong, but I’m not going to sit and here and throw them off the boat and act like they are communists like so many other “conservatives” seem to be doing. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

Uh… old news. If you read it with a jaundiced eye, perhaps you will pluck things out of context and run with them, as some here have already done.

I know Newt well, and he is 1. Being gracious by calling this a great achievement for Romney, and 2. Gingrich already made a statement about Romney having to “earn” the 1,144 delegates: http://news.yahoo.com/gingrich-romney-earn-132458238.html. Gingrich is not endorsing Romney here, nor is he pronouncing him ‘winner’. Newt is stating that, yes, Romney is the front runner (I think we knew that), and he could possibly end up with the magic number, BUT he’s going to have to work his butt of to get those delegates (not to mention lie, buy people off, and whatever else he does).

Yep! Newt’s got my back. No worries.

Ryan: “I spent a good deal of time with Romney and staff…”

So Romney needs Ryan to pull the base, and Ryan is leaving the door open for the V.P. spot… which is why the “good deal of time w/Romney” makes sense. Seems like they both are mutually benefiting out of this endorsement. It’s unfortunate for the base b/c of the mixed signal by Ryan.

Just exactly how is Romney ‘clearly that person, who is the best person to be President and who has the best chance to defeat Barack Obama‘?

Anyone who is a legitimate conservative, but still doubts Romney’s conservative bona fides has to notice the Rubio and Ryan endorsements. Both are serious and uncompromising conservatives. Ryan was one of my first choices to run for President. Both have properly allowed the process to play out. Both are now on board with Romney. For me the news from Ryan was his commentary on how big of a job it is to run a national Presidential Campaign. We really do need to get started.

I’ll tell you what this conservative noticed–Supreme Court Justice Ruth Buzzy Ginzburg repeatedly referring to Romneycare in her defense of Obamneycare (during SCOTUS oral arguments this week), and parroting Romney’s defense of the mandate as somehow conservative. That’s what I noticed.

Willard represents everything that is wrong with liberal big government types. Nothing Ryan or Rubio have said (both are silent on Obamneycare) changes my view of Willard.

Interesting observation. I often wondered if the subversives like Ginsberg were waiting to see if Mass would be challenged in court. I guess there are 26 states who feel differently.

Romney was no “businessman”. He was the financial buzzard the VC bankers sent in to dismantle or restructure targeted companies.

Hussein Obama extracted all the cash, ran up the debt, and poisoned the well. Now Romney is being sent in to pick our bones and restructure the new government order.

I love hearing these endorsements and how contrived they are. This is typical campaign management – these folks have been in the bag for some time, but being pulled out at strategic times. Ryan’s endorsement is, of course, perfectly timed in advance of the Wisconsin primary, and comes on the heels of the Bush endorsements and the Rubio endorsement that sought to rally Romney after the blowout win for Santorum in LA. Do I believe this was a difficult decision for Ryan? NO – after all, he’s following course along with the significant majority of Washington D.C. GOP leaders who have lined up behind Romney. Is that courageous? The bigger question for me is – will any of you remember later (say, 2016) that Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Bob McDonnell, etc. (people held out as strong conservatives) endorsed Romney at a time when it was unnecessary, in order to shut… Read more »

A true progressive. Mock and denigrate.

I am not a progressive. I am a pure libertarian conservative. The new world order complaint is a construct that lives in the minds of conspiracy theorists and nut jobs.

People go through phases to explain what their instincts tell them. There are many very powerful alliances and people working to destroy us and our Constitution from within.

I would rather people call it a new world order than to deny it.

Libertarianism and Conservatism are two different schools of political thought, while it is perfectly fine to blend what one personally finds agreeable from differing ideologies, to label it as “pure” anything is, in the least a misnomer. One can be a pure Libertarian or a pure Conservative, however once one begins “blending”, what one ends up with is a hybrid by definition.

I hope that West will not endorse …….
In short, Romney failure could not enter the Senate, and could not be elected last time …. how many times he tried, this time he took over and trying to determine conclusively the election.

I can’t determine if the Republican party is drowning in arrogance or stupidity or both.

They know full well that if Romney is the nominee, there will be a mass exodus from the party and the GOP will go the way of the Whigs. And they know this because in some cases as many as 50% of those who are called by the RNC asking for cash are telling them this very thing.

Conservatives are not sheeple and all it will take is 5-10% to either stay home or vote for a third-party candidate on November 6.

Yep! And I’ve got my “unaffiliate” form already printed out and ready. When I get that letter in the mail saying they’re sorry to see me go and asking why, I’m going to write MITT ROMNEY in red marker across the front of it and send it right back to them.

Maybe. I suspect a mass exodus will matter, or the noticeable downturn in monetary support. One person alone never makes a difference, but together, people can make a difference. Remember when one of the banks was going to charge fees for using a debit card? Maybe one person closing their account didn’t matter, but thousands closing their accounts did, and the big bank changed its mind.

Mass Exodus??? Where do you get that? You will vote for Romney. So will everyone else on this board. No one is going anywhere.

I will contrbute and campaign for conservatives.

I will not contribute a dime to Romney or the RNC. I will not vote for Romney. My father came to this country to escape socialist despots like Romney. I will never ever vote for one.

If Mitt does not have a running mate with a proven track record of fighting for the life of the unborn and marriage and who has the ear of Mitt Romney, Mitt will not get my vote. And what you imagine does not make it so.

I can speak for myself on this. McCain was the last straw in my apathetic drift down after Reagan. Palin brought me back to nearly full steam as did the tea party movement.

I easily put more time and money into Republican candidates in the 2010 elections than I had in previous 10 years combined.

Romney is a nightmare candidate. A complete reverse course. If he is forced on us, I am done with the Party. I have much more focus now – the list of true conservatives is narrowing.

The RNC called me for a donation and I said, “No,” because they have used my money to help people, like Scozzafava and Murkowski, against true Conservatives.
Told them that I would be giving my money directly to the candidate of my own choosing and SarahPAC.com because I know that my money will be wisely spent. After I said that Sarah Palin had a better track record of picking and sticking with Conservative winners, the solicitor hung up on me.
The RNC hasn’t gotten any more money from me since the Scozzafava debacle. The Murkowski debacle was the clincher.

I am with you there. I started donating heavily to the RNC and his campaign after McCain picked Palin. No more, not a dime. Only conservative candidates. The subject of one email I got from them was “Why have you abandoned your party smile

Wonderful. Now we can file Paul Ryan in the “establishment” category.
