    The only reason to shed a tear over Rick Santorum’s withdrawal is that the chances of having an open convention were reduced considerably. Splitting the remaining primaries among Gingrich, Paul and Romney so that nobody gets the required 1,144 delegates before the convention is an inch on the other side of impossible. Romney’s going to get the nomination before the convention and conservatives are going to get the rigid rod of reality inserted where the sun never shines.

    Does anybody really believe that Romney will do anything differently than Hussein when it comes to the important stuff? Can anybody honestly say that Romney will refuse to raise the debt ceiling, refuse to bailout his buddies on Wall Street, refuse to increase education industry funding, refuse to create more government jobs, or refuse to do any of the things Hussein did?

    And let’s not forget the UNIC (United Nations/International Community). Romney will sellout to the United Nations faster than did Hussein if that is possible. Ask him about US membership in the UN if you do not believe me. Romney will show himself to be a lying sneak no different than Hussein when it comes to protecting and defending America’s sovereignty. Remember that Romney is a Northeast liberal from Massachusetts. Whatever he says ain’t standard political flip-flopping as the media would have the public believe —— he is programmed to be a lying sneak, and he is better at it than is Hussein. Mark my words on this.

    You might ask yourself this question: Would Romney stand a chance of being elected if Hussein was not so bad?

    Romney will whisper sweet nothings into conservatives ears because he needs them in the general election. Call it an insurance policy in the event “Anybody But Obama” fails to suck in conservative voters.

    Finally, have you noticed that talking heads are breathing sighs of relief? Their story is: Republicans will now coalesce around Romney? Either the paid pundits are stupid or they think the public is stupid. Republicans were always united behind the eventual candidate. There was never any doubt about it. The “coalesce” crap is aimed at Tea Partiers, and hardcore conservatives who want more than sweet nothings.

    First of all Wall Street ain't your enemy and "drill baby drill" will lower energy prices. About 60% of Americans are against the 3,000 page monster they call a "health care bill". By the looks of things republicans and democrats will rally around Romney.

    To whitehall: Wall Street became the enemy of all private sector Americans the minute it took bailout tax dollars.

    To whitehall: Drilling combined with building new refineries in this country could lower energy costs. “COULD” is the key word. No matter what Romney says he will do, neither he nor anyone else will lower prices on anything. Lowering prices on anything strikes at Wall Street’s very foundation. Lower the price of energy and the domino effect takes over —— that will be prevented no matter what it takes.

    I expect Romney will utilize the EPA to wiggle out of any energy promises he makes to get elected.


    To whitehall: In light of Romneycare and his refusal to call for repealing it in Massachusetts nobody in their right mind would trust Romney on healthcare. He originally stated he did not want to repeal the entire federal bill. I’m not sure what he is saying today.

    To whitehall: By the looks of it the American people will force Romney to go along with repealing HillaryCare II. That ain’t the same as rallying around your boy.

    I understand why the post is in the Tea Party forum. Democrats are holding on to a pathetic hope that they can still split republican support for their candidate. What you "expect" and what you assume is probably based on wishful thinking. "Anybody but Obama" is a strong incentive and the republican energy agenda is superior to the mess we have today. Democrats will probably want camouflage the health care issue by referring to Romney's old system in Mass but I doubt if it will resonate. If the best democrats can do is a weak argument that Romney isn't much different from Barry it shows in what bad shape they are in.

    To whitehall: Democrats will clutch any straw, but they cannot split Republicans. Conservatives are already wary of Romney if you want to call that a split. Smart Democrats will get out of the way and let it play out.

    Romney’s problem is that he isn’t any different than the country club Republicans that sank Bush the Elder’s chance of getting a second term in 1992. Jeffrey Lord offers some interesting background that led to conservatives abandoning Papa Bush. A lot of it was nuts and bolts politics, or inside baseball if you prefer that term. When all was said and done it came down to trust. Rank & file conservatives had every reason to trust RR’s vice president in 1988. By 1992 that trust was gone.

    Romney does not have the Ronald Reagan trust factor going for him. If anything, he can be tied to the late Ted Kennedy easier than he can align himself with Ronald Reagan. Bottom line: Conservatives have no reason to trust Romney irrespective of what he says during a campaign.

    I think you’ll better understand what I am talking about if you take a few minutes to read:


    The Mitt H.W. Bush Problem
    By Jeffrey Lord on 4.12.12 @ 6:09AM
    Arrogance, hostility to conservatives sank the moderate president elected as Reagan's heir.

    To Intense: If you are not a necessary civil servant or a legitimate government contractor you have no business getting tax dollars. Millions live on tax dollars without having a damn thing to do with operating limited, necessary, government. Those millions constitute the parasite class. And I’m not talking about welfare mothers. It is those parasites who go to government jobs, or get subsidies and funding of every kind who are the enemies of the private sector.

    The federal education industry, Public Television, Public Radio, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and on and on goes the list of parasite entities. None of them have any business getting tax dollars. In addition, just about everybody who administers the welfare state is a parasite. I once read that 85 cents out of every welfare dollar is paid to those who administer welfare programs. More to the point, they are all the mortal enemies of individual liberties and freedom because productive Americans are forced to provide incomes for parasites.

    If Romney is similar in popularity to Ted Kennedy he should be a shoe-in with democrats. Reasonable democrats are so fed up with the Obama drift towards socialism they should see Romney as a new democrat and republicans are ready to vote for anyone but Barry so it seems like a landslide to me.

    It wasn't my claim it was Flanders. The truth is that Romney beat Obama in polls right after Santorum dropped out and he isn't even the official candidate yet.
