...policy Mitt instituted while governor of Massachusetts.

He increased revenue by raising fee sometimes as much as 1000%.

Fees were increased so much, so often, Romney was referred to as Fifi (fee fee).

He instituted Romneycare.

He banned so called assault weapons.

He had illegal immigrants working for him.

He did nothing to end the practice of sanctuary cities until AFTER he decided not to seek reelection.

He was 47th worst for job creation...and that was when unemployment ran at 5%.

So, what did he do when he had the big chair?

Because it looks like an Obama prequel.

How can any conservative support this track record of liberal ideology?

Just like Obama, Romney is a polished speaker, but his actions paint the real picture.

If Romney is the nominee I will not vote for him. I will not vote for Obama and just let it be I guess. He is just as left. This should be sent to Hermain Cain for his political ads :eusa_whistle:

Now Missourian... you just can't say these things.

Don't you know that Romney is the strongest candidate the GOP can run.

Even though he's lost 3 of 4 elections he's run in, and the only one he won he got a whopping 49% against a non-entity. But he's "electable".

Yup, according to the Romney-bots, Even though Rick Perry has won 6 out of 6 elections he's run in, he's not electable against Obama with 9% unemployment.

And even though they all swear up and down they are 'real conservatives' (Just Ask JakeSnarkey and California Ghoul), they have no faith in a real conservative to win. They totally believe Ed Schultz and Chris Matthews that they are really scared of Romney. And Jon Huntsman with his whopping 2%.

6-0 football teams have never lost. 1-3 football teams have never won.

This isn't football, guy.

This is the ability to get people out and vote for your guy.

Romney isn't that guy. Perry might be. I'd feel better about Perry if he started earlier and spent more time defining himself instead of letting the Media do it.

But Romney's been running for President for 6 years now, and he's still only at that 25% of the GOP, with a lot of key constituencies unwilling to support him.

Well, that's simple. We need to completely rig the game so he can win! :blowup:

We need to rip into our own, we need to move up the primaries and try to sew this thing before a single vote is cast. We need to keep declaring Romney the winner in debates. We have totally ignore his liberal history, his flip flops, his sleazy business practices and his batshit crazy religion.

After all, the Republicans have lost 4 of the last 5 popular votes for President. They insist on foisting characters like McCain and Dole on the GOP, and wonder why folks like me who usually vote Republican don't get excited.

Of course, McCain and Dole are Gods compared to Romney.

It's the same idea. Lincoln lost over and over again before winning the Presidency. I think he was 0-8. How many elections had McCain lost before losing in 2008? I assure you his record was better than 1-3. In fact I think his only loss was in 2000.

Perry's not the guy, either. Have anyone else?

The narrative is being written. The nutters will never accept that thinking people, while not absolutely overjoyed with all matters, are essentially satisfied with the job that Obama has done with what was handed to him.

So.....the ONLY reason that he could ever win, according to the disloyal opposition here, is the inability of the GOP to find a conservative.

It is a nice story.

Actually, Lincoln only ran for federal office five times in his life, and he won 3 out of 5. He won his first race as a Congressman in 1846. He served one term as promised and was done. He ran for the Senate in 1854, but he was running to be appointed by the legislature, not popular election. That one he lost, but he was running as a Whig when the Whig party was on it's last legs. He lost in 1858 when he ran as a Republican, but it was against Douglas, who already had the job. He won in 1860 and again in 1864.

Abraham Lincoln - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So he had a 60% victory rate, and a 100% rate when put to the people.

Now let's look at Romney.

Lost to Ted Kennedy in 1994. By 17 points when a lot of people thought Kennedy was vulnerable after the whole rape case trial of his nephew, William Kennedy Smith. It was a year when Republicans were rolling over everyone, and Romney lost.

Won in 2002 for Governor. Spent 7 million of his own money, ran unopposed for the nomination, and his Democratic opponent was a non-entity. And it was 2002, when the Democrats were cowed into submission after 9/11. So despite essentially shooting at a staked rabbit, he only won with 49% of the vote.

2006- Wanted to run for re-election. Polls showed him trailing Devall Patrick by double digits. Left some other poor fool holding the bag.

Then we get to 2008. Spent millions of his own money. Raised millions from other Wall Street bloodsuckers. He lost Iowa to Mike Huckabee running on a shoe string. Lost NH to John McCain who had been declared dead a few months before. He barely won Michigan, but only because McCain didn't contest it. Michigan was holding an illegal early primary, and lost half its delegates. Romney barely won by promising to bail out the auto industry. (Then he condemned Obama for actually bailing out the auto industury.)

He then came in fourth in South Carolina. The guy who came in third quit the next day. He lost Florida.

Ah, and now we get to Super Tuesday. Do you know how many primaries Romney won? Two. Utah, where his fellow LDS cultists voted for him, and his home state of Massachusets, where McCain still came damned close despite not actually campaigning there.

So you can kind of see why the GOP establishment is trying to rig the game for Romney, left to his own devices, he usually manages to muck it up.

mad google skilz, d00d

btw, he had zero intention of running for reelection in '06-he was out the door at the end of '05 revving up his pres campaign.

i think he sucks, but the sad thing is there's no one better at this point.

unless you really think one of those "social" conservatives has a chance in hell. :lol:
