Rick Santorum ended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination yesterday, making Mitt Romney the all-but-certain nominee. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are staying in the race, but now attention is shifting to Romney’s future choice of a running mate and uphill battle to replace President Obama.

Speculation that Santorum would quit the race rose after his three-year-old daughter, Bella, had to go to the hospital over the weekend. She suffers from Trisomy-18, a rare disorder that is fatal for all but one percent of its victims by age 10. She has been released from the hospital, but the decision to exit the race was still made.

Santorum described his campaign as being “about who we are as Americans” and reflected on how his campaign sprung from last place to runner-up, despite being counted out all the way up until the final weeks before the Iowa caucus. He is proud that his campaign didn’t focus solely on the economy, but also “violent radical Islam” and “the scourge of Iran.”

There were other factors in his decision. His campaign is asking supporters to help pay off debt, saying the campaign “can’t be free to focus on helping defeat [Obama] with this burden.” Romney had also attained a nearly insurmountable delegate lead. His rivals were under tremendous pressure to drop out due to fears that a prolonged campaign would give Obama decisive advantages. He was also declining in the polls in his home state of Pennsylvania. A game-ending Romney victory there on April 24 was becoming more likely.

Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are committed to staying in the race. Gingrich immediately declared himself the “last conservative standing”  and says he is eager to go one-on-one with Romney. He hopes to debate him in North Carolina before the state holds its primary on May 8. It is highly unlikely Romney will agree.

Gingrich is focusing on winning delegates in Delaware on April 24, North Carolina on May 8 and Texas on May 29. He admits that Romney is “far and away” the most likely one to get the nomination, so he instead is focusing on influencing the party platform. According to the Republican National Committee, Romney currently has 573 delegates. Even if all of Santorum’s delegates jumped to Gingrich, he’d only have 334.

The focus will now be on Romney’s running mate and the general election. The most mentioned names are Florida Senator Marco Rubio, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Ohio Senator Rob Portman, Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell. Sarah Palin and Herman Cain suggest Florida Representative Allen West.

    You can't be free to focus on helping defeat Obama [because the of lack of money], can you?..

    You are a faker, Romney! Everyone who wants to defeat the opponent begins with exposure of the most serious counts of criminality of the opponent – if one is sincere and honest. And how much more criminality do you need if your opponent Soetoro/Obama is…

    - An IDENTITY THIEF with fake SS# and other fake papers!

    - A fraud who had mockingly produced a cheap audacious forgery of his birth certificate to the world! This has compromised the entire institute of American presidency more than anything in the entire history!

    - Not a US natural born citizen, therefore not qualified because of this alone since 2008!

    - An islamic and socialist agent of influence (by Bill Airs and the likes) conducting anti-American policies.

    Yet Romney-the-liberast has nothing to say about anything of it. The "the truth about ineligibility of the usurper would alienate too many people from the Republican Party" and expose the complicity of Romney himself.

    America, you are betrayed!

    With the usurper in the ballots 2nd time (!)
    ELECTION Is Not the ANSWER: PROSECUTION IS!

    As an accomplice in the biggest scum,
    ROMNEY Is Not a SOLUTION but the PROBLEM!

      Your post is the reason Romney has an uphill battle. He's not won the hearts of conservatives. I thought that is what Mauro's piece would be about but it wasn't. Romney's challenge is to win over a skeptical and irritated base; irritated that we do not have a committed conservative but a RINO.

      I voted for Gingrich – with all his baggage – in our state's primary, largely due to his honesty about the global jihad vs. Romney's lack of honesty. I will never forget the December 10 Iowa debate where Romney, joined by Santorum, rebuked Gingrich for telling the truth about the self-identified Palestinian jihadists. Led by radio talk show host Michael Savage, Ann Coulter, Elliott Abrams and other Establishment figures, Gingrich was destroyed in behalf of Romney.

      That having been said, Obama is much worse. From purely self-interest, I cannot imagine not voting for Romney over Obama. The future (at least the short-term future) of the nation is at stake. Obama is a totalitarian-demagogue and a very dangerous one at that.

      • Stephen_Brady

        You've spoken for me, WJ.

        I think that the current polls in the battleground states are the main reason why the Left pulled out all the stops to make sure that Romney will get the nomination. They can't imagine that conservatives will turn out in huge numbers to vote for someone who … at least … is a moderate. They haven't reckoned with our determiination to turn Obama out of our House.

        I will make this clear. I am a conservative (not a libertarian) and I will vote for Romney in a heartbeat. So will my wife. And on election day, we will be taking other conservatives … many of them elderly … to the polls, all day long.

        • Never Surrender

          Amen, amen, amen, to you and to WJ. Dear G-D, the only thing that matters now for rescuing America is defeating Obama.

          • Stephen_Brady

            There's only one issue in this campaign. It's not the economy, the environment, the Supreme Court, foreign policy, military policy, healthcare, or anything else. Obama himself is the issue. He must go, and we must do everything we can to defeat him.

            Obama is the issue … the only issue … in this campaign.

        • Oleg

          I thought that the left's first choice was to have Tim Pawlety or John Huntsman as the nominee? At least that's who the CNN crew and the disgraced perverted ex governor of New York State, Elliot Spitzer thought should get the job.
          I think this is an indictment of how worthless the primary process is as it is established, it is supposed to fliter and vet the candidates to come up with the best nominee, instead it has become selection through attrition, whoever has enough money to outlast the rest wins. There is a profound stupidity in a process where the winner takes all delegates in each state, the reason being is that in states like Maryland, Masattchecetts, Maine, Vermont, etc. the lefties change their registration, pick the most lackluster, weak kneed Repuplican candidate they can find, and make sure that he wins that primarya and all of the delegates from that state. So you are allowing voters in states that have no intention of voting Republican in a presidential election, and that a Republican candidate can not win, influence who gets the nomination.

          • umustbkidding

            This wasn't even attrition, the Republican elite have joined with the communist press to defeat all of the competing nominee's of Romney. They have kept competing nominee's off the ballot. It disgusts me. If you haven't voted yet in a primary, please don't vote for an incumbent. We need to kick the sticks in the mud out and have a fresh start. Hopefully with a Tea Party candidate.

        That Obama/Soetoro is not natural born is a common civic known since beginning of his campaign in 2008 http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.h… .

        That Obama/Soetoro used several legal names and had fake SS numbers was known since 2009 thanks to Dr. Orly Taitz and here team, and then the April 2011 forgery was displayed to the world. All that now has entered the trial record in Georgia of February 2012. Then Sheriff Arpio confirmed all the above and added more on March 1, 2012. Sherif Arpaio has also spoken to each of the candidates including Romney – who all refused to follow their duty and demand prosecution of the opponent – the high criminal.

            The US law require the president to be born in the USA, nothing more. The Law of Nations does not apply.

            Numerous individuals, like Trump, have asserted the O was not born on U.S. soild. A petition is not considered valid support.

            You are correct about Georgia; putting O on the ballot was illegal.

            Comparing Russia to the USA is a faulty analogy. We are a nation of immigrants, and Russians have always had some form of totalitarian government. Rome might be better with the homily: "bread and circuses."

          • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

            Aspacia,

            If "the US law" in your mind means the Statutes (the law books), we have nothing on "the books": no codified requirements to the position of president. It is the US Constitution which sets fore this requirement. And the Constitution uses the concept Natural born, which is clearly something stronger than a common citizen. And it does not mention "to be born in the USA" nor provides any other definition explicitly. Therefore "to be born in the USA" is your invention, and not a wise one, because illegal (or legal "delivery" tourists) moms drop their babies on the US soil, so the babies become born in the USA. Are they all presidential candidates in good standing in your view? For the true meaning look here:
            http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.h

            As to my comparison 1917 vs. 2008, it is not about details and specifics of the then Russia vs. the USA. The small details are irrelevant here. We are comparing the processes of demise and forces causing them in both nations. And they do happen to be near identical.

          • aspacia

            "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

            The conjuction OR makes the difference.

            Gofen, I fear the totalitarian mind of O just as you do, but do not waste my time looking for evidence to oust him on the matter of citizenship because I do not have access to valid sources regarding his life, all have been sealed. This fact, demonstrates that he indeed has something to hide, and hopefully he will be out come November.

          • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

            OR means the so called "grandfather clause" – the exception made for the contemporaries of the Founders, who could not yet satisfy the full definition of the Natural Born.

            As a good citizen you must not ignore his unconstitutionality, focusing only on his treasonous actions.

            Constitutional illegitimacy was thrown into the face of America in the full light of the day not met by any opposition. You totally underestimate the demoralizing effect of such an audacious disregard of the Constitution and the totalitarian denial of the obvious, such a corruption of Justice, or rather the end of it.

            He will NOT be out in November if he stays in the ballots, just as Stalin or Brezhnev could never be defeated in election while their names were in ballots. The entire totalitarian system that served them is already here.

            If everything goes as it goes, have a dignity at least to show your last remnants of civility during the election – and TEAR the ballots into pieces publicly – just as your Constitution and you country have been!

            DO NOT SANCTION THE PROCESS IN WHICH YOU WERE DUPED BY YOUR WILLFUL COLLABORATION.

      "anyone but Obama"

  • Reason_For_Life

    At least Ryan Mauro gives an honest assessment of just how bad a candidate Romney is. The only good thing that can be said for a Romney candidacy is that Obama won't have to start a war to get reelected. Obama will win in a walk.

    The US has two big government political parties. One is proud to make government as big and intrusive as it can. The other party lies about favoring smaller government but makes it bigger every chance it gets. The last Republican to actually make the government smaller was Calvin Coolidge, a president that no modern Republican will praise or even allow Coolidge's name to be mentioned during a campaign. Republicans today are ashamed that any of their party would actually limit government. If you doubt this, look how Reince Priebus treated Gary Johnson.

    Both parties favor expanded federal powers because Americans have always believed in a big, intrusive government. Some Americans are embarrassed to be seen wanting the same things as the Democrats so they call themselves Republicans and pretend to want smaller government. But if you talk to them about privatizing Social Security or school vouchers or legalizing drugs or abolishing Medicare you will see them show their big government bona fides.

    America has avoided totalitarianism solely because of a small group of individualists who number less than 10% of the population. This group has worked to protect fundamental economic and civil rights. However, the last few elections have pretty much silenced that group and now both political parties are virtually identical, Both fight wars against terror abroad and against drugs at home. Both approve deficits in excess of a trillion dollars a year. Both want you frisked at airports, tracked by your cell phone and want your financial records ever more complicated and ever more intrusively monitored. Both despise privacy. Both know better how to spend your money than you do.

    Remember, America: Politicians reflect your values, they are what you want – a bigger, more powerful total government. So stop pretending that you value liberty. Put your shackles on proudly and say "I choose my master!"

    • Stephen_Brady

      So who do you vote for? You have no realistic choice, so it is back to the "lesser of two evils". I will vote Romney, because any other vote … or staying at home … gives Obama another four years.

      • Reason_For_Life

        Whether you go off a cliff at 90 mph versus 88 mph doesn't change the final outcome.

        If there were a viable candidate that wanted to turn the car around I would vote for him. Under Romney the budgets will grow just as fast as under Obama. The mixture would be different (more military spending vs more social spending) but the outcome will be the same – economic collapse followed by some form of totalitarianism.

        Two candidates offered the chance to cut spending and the size of government, Gary Johnson and Ron Paul. Johnson was taken out by Reince Priebus and Paul has been vilified in terms usually reserved for child murderers.

        America has made its choice and that choice is more and bigger government. I will not sanction the process of enslavement by choosing my master.

        • Looking4Sanity

          BS. You are part of the problem at this point. You are a stiff necked @$$hole who would knowingly and willingly (if not gleefully) harm your country.

          I've made every reasoned argument against Romney under the sun for the last year…but now that it has come down to cases, I'm STILL going to go vote for him with a smile on my face. To do anything else would be a betrayal of the Constitution. And you are a filthy traitor to your country for suggesting anyone follow your demented lead.

            Looking4Sanity – Keep looking, you obviously haven't found it.

            You're still going to vote for someone you know to be a catastrophe-in-waiting! This is the same BS that gave us Nixon (price controls and the EPA) and G W Bush (Patriot Act, two endless wars, Sarbanes-Oxley, Medicare part D and "No Child Left Behind"). How'd that work for ya?

            The only thing to do is capture the Senate and turn Obama into the White House lawn ornament.

          • Looking4Sanity

            You may be too stupid to realize it, but you've just put yourself in the position of defending Obama's Presidency!

            Are you SERIOUSLY telling me that ANY of that crap you mentioned begins to compare to Obama's shredding of the Constitution and soiling of the Office of the Presidency?!?

            If you are telling me that Romney would be as bad or worse than Obama, then you are absolutely stark raving insane.

            Otherwise…even a small improvement is better than a continuing deterioration.

          • Reason_For_Life

            Constitution shredding? The Patriot Act was George Bush's baby. It was Bush who first stated that the president could imprison anyone he chose for as long as he chose. Obama merely picked up where Bush left off.

            Romney with a Republican congress would be every bit as bad as Obama with a Democrat congress. The only short term answer is gridlock. Let partisan bickering give us more time. But if you think that Romney will make things better then you need to kept away from sharp instruments because you're obviously suicidal.

          • Looking4Sanity

            You FRACKING Commie! You just admitted that you WANT Obama to have a 2nd term!

          • Jim_C

            Right, you can't counter Reason's points, so bring on the name calling. "At least Romney's not quite as bad a Obama." Well, there's a winning campaign slogan!

            Reason has a bigger point about intellectual honesty and cognitive dissonance. Conservatives love to talk the talk, which is why there's so many big bold voices making names for themselves as television pundits and radio hosts. But they can't walk the walk, which is why there are so few politicians who actually do. So you'll vote for big government, albeit one with a tax break here and a deregulation there, and wonder why the country's in a crapper because it's out of money. Because YOU spent it, you big commie, you!

            You can either accept that (since government costs money, after all) or you can decide you want to walk the walk. But actually walking the conservative walk seems to make you enemies quick in this Republican party.

            Despite the hype that this election is "the most important election in American history" we will see a surprisingly small turnout.

            I have never voted for a Democrat in my life and I would never vote for a power hungry big statist like McCain. I'm tired of choosing between Fric and Frac. . I will not vote for either "Massah Obama" or "Massah Romney".

          • ForConstitution

            So let me get this straight. You didn't LIKE Bob Barr but you voted for him any way. You voted for him even though he had NO chance of winning.

            So what did your protest vote count for? Where you even heard? NO. You've changed nothing!! You voted based on YOU feeling better instead of voting for McCain who would have been a helluva lot better than Obama. Your vote was emotion based and nothing else proving that your nothing but a LIBERAL.

            That's some STUPID logic! We can now blame you for Obama winning. Thanks a lot DUMB ASS.

    The most important comparison between Romney and Obama has to do with their moral character. An honest president will honor the constitution of the nation and will honor the oath he took to protect the nation from all foes. Obama fails in every conceivable way and is in effect America's greatest foe, therefore, Romney wins this comparison regardless of what shortcomings some think he has.

    The real issue in this election is the intelligence and moral clarity of the citizens of this nation. If our voters choose, for a second time, a proven liar, revolutionary, and enemy to everything that made this country great, it will never have another free and fair election……at least not without a civil war. This election is a test of the soul of America.

    When the electorate becomes uneducated and immoral, democracy will fail.

    • Jim_C

      The "moral character" issue is an illusion; it's easy enough to argue for Romney or Obama's character based on your voting preference.

      The real issue is the ability to anoint candidates and buy elections. Ask yourself how is it possible that you can have an extremely successful conservative movement but be unable to field a "real" conservative candidate even in the primaries?

      • truebearing

        You are confused. Morality is the central issue for conservatism, but reviled by the Left. No freedom or justice can exist in a nation ruled by people who sneer at morality.

        It is more important to field a conservative Congress than president. Stop obsessing over finding the "perfect" political father figure.

        • Jim_C

          Well, I agree about the father figure. We're wayyy too impressed with the presidency in general.

          You can imagine morality is reviled by the Left; I'm sure it gives you warm fuzzies to think so. But Obama is a decent and moral man, just as I'm sure Romney is. You just don't like him. That doesn't make him immoral.

          • Reason_For_Life

            Obama is decent to his family, but so is the average mafioso. We're not looking for a family to adopt us, were looking for someone who'll keep his word. Obama has lied to us continually and cannot be thought of as "moral" unless you approve of lying. Guantanamo is still open, the wars continue, the society is not "post racial" but is actually more divided than it's been since the 70's.

            He did keep his word about a few things: Energy prices have skyrocketed and coal burning power plants are being shut down.

          • truebearing

            The Left has mocked, scorned, and undermined morality at every opportunity for decades. How you missed that I can't imagine. And no, it doesn't give me any pleasure to watch the nihilistic, amoral, immoral, pathological lying the Left perpetually engages in.

            Obama isn't a decent man. he is a malignant narcissist, a pathological liar, and a tremendously bigoted despot. He is a ruthless ideologue who has violated his promises to those who elected him and his oath to all who live in this nation. He is purposely weakening the country in a quest to subordinate the US to a world government, and he has used our military and our taxes to push an agenda that is in direct opposition to the will of the people and the constitution.

            You suffer from substantial moral opacity. Maybe if you stopped thinking in terms of equivalencies you would start to differentiate better.

    • Never Surrender

      Exactly. Romney definitely wins this comparison. He loves America and is proud to be an American. He will honor the Constitution and his oath of office. So much is at stake. These stiff-necked supposed conservatives wanking on about how Romney is no better than Obama had better face the fact that they will be just as responsible as he for the demise of America if they help him get re-elected.

    • intrcptr2

      Not sure why you got any negative votes; this speaks volumes.
      Are we really to expect that God will shine His countenance upon this nation when this is the choice we give ourselves for national leadership?

      And what of the Jews in America? What happens when the IAF bombs Iran? Or the election is so close it goes to the courts like 2000? Or G. Zimmerman is acquitted?

      • Jim_C

        Did God shine his countenance upon us during Clinton? Bush? And how so?

        Romney's religion may be a bit kooky, but I come from one where we believe we are eating Christ's body and drinking his blood. That's fairly kooky, too–but we've been doing it for centuries so it seems "normal." Obama may not be Billy Graham but he's not a Muslim, either. Though I hope people continue to call him that, since it only makes him look better.

      • Looking4Sanity

        Zimmerman WILL be acquitted, Israel WILL bomb Iran and the election MAY indeed be that close…and do you have a problem with Jews being in America?

        You should stop talking in veiled innuendo and just say what you mean. You'll feel more like a man.

        • intrcptr2

          I do speak openly, go back and read my other comments.

          I am posing these questions to highlight the fact that there are so many people who disagree that bombing Iran is necessary, or that Mr Zimmerman likely should be acquitted, or that Obama ought to be tossed out on his ear (Or rather impeached before the election).
          I am of the sad opinion that if any of this does happen, there may very well be rioting in the streets, rather like the reaction in LA to the Rodney King case. And if there is, it will be a race riot; and Jews always get scapegoated in such times. Even if blacks and whites start shooting one another, Jewish people in the US will be in the middle. This thought, which is one I've been talking over with a few friends for years now, deeply upsets me. But I think it inescapable.

          • Looking4Sanity

            Thank you very much for the clarification. You seem to have your finger on the pulse of reality.If insurrection is to come (I refuse to call it simple rioting because there is an undeniable political agenda behind it) then it will be dealt with just as it was in the Civil War. The Constitution won the day then, and it will win the day tomorrow as well. I may be too old to draft, but I'm willing to volunteer.

    • WildJew

      I am not a student of Mormonism. From what I have read, it has some troubling aspects or tenets. Nonetheless, I will vote for a committed Mormon over a committed Muslim. Obama may be a non-practicing Muslim, yet he is appears committed to the furtherance of its most extreme interpretation in the Middle East and North Africa. Obama is furthering Islamic supremacism here in the U.S. as well.

      • intrcptr2

        Yeah, I feel your pain; such a choice I wish on no American.

        It is in fact his foreign policies which demonstrate his intellectual Islam.

    • Looking4Sanity

      Do Mormons believe in Sharia Law or convert followers by threatening to behead infidels?

      It seems that the choice is an easy one based on your criteria.

  • Chezwick

    It's not about money. If Obama were broke, he'd still have the mainstream media at his beck and call to do his bidding by propagating his message and spinning his record. But Romney's one chance to go over the head of the media filter and talk directly to the American people is during the debates. He better frigg'n do his homework, stay on message, and stop being so stiff and show his human side.

    • Jim_C

      He hasn't shown his human side yet, has he? I don't think any amount of coaching will make it emerge.

      • WildJew

        I thought that would be what this piece would be about. Winning over conservatives like you. That is Romney's challenge. If Romney, like McCain, fails to win his base, he doesn't have a chance in my view.

        • Jim_C

          I'm not conservative. And if I were Republican or a hedge fund manager or something I'd probably be fine with Romney. And should he win, I'm not going to declare "apocalypse now" the way hysterical conservatives have done with Obama. He'd probably be OK.

          I'm not trying to make fun of the guy–he's just so obviously uncomfortable as a "man of the people" and out of touch, there's not a lot he can do other than try to inject some substance into the debates. Obama's armor has a hole where health care is; unfortunately for Romney, any attempt to distinguish his state's plan from Obama's is mere hair-splitting.

    • tedder

      The debates? Obama would be an even bigger fool than he appears if he participates in a national debate over his record. He'll find a sufficiently weak rationale to withdraw.

  • keith

    • Grayzel

    • Reason_For_Life

    • aspacia

      I am 59, and voted Democrat in every presidential election until the last one. Mitt is running to be Commander and Chief, not theologian and chief. He bows to other leaders and apologizes for America's sins, when these other leaders have greater sins and owe us an apology. O appoints racists to the DOJ and Court, and increased a debt 4 fold since Wbya. I doubt if Romney would be anywhere near as bad.

  • cynthia curran

    Romeny a great guy. The orginal reform on heath care in MA was different from the final results dacuse of the Dems. Romeny never said he wanted to make it national. Tea Party people and Evangelicals like Gringrich that personality made a lot of deals with the Dems too. But Romney is a lot better than Obama.

    • Jim_C

      In fact, Romney did consider his health care plan a national model, and rest assured Obama's campaign will have all those clips handy when the time comes.

      • Looking4Sanity

        …and I'm sure you'll swallow it like big Jimbo's salami. Idiot.

    • tedder

      'But Romney is a lot better than Obama.'

      No he isn't, A solid conservative would be a lot better. A moderate like Romney will only be slightly better.

      The Democrat Party has sustained a critical self-inflicted wound with Obama. They are out of the proverbial closet as anti- capitalists, anti American Exceptional-ism. With the right Republican replacement, their wound can prove fatal. The Dems desperately need to win this next election or at least be followed by a benevolent victor who will allow then to get up from the floor, rehabilitate themselves and live to fight another day. They know Romney is that guy, and he he knows it. That is why he is so desperate to ride to their rescue.

      Moderates Republicans have a greater affinity with liberal-Dems than conservative Republicans. They share the same contempt for us.

      • Jim_C

        Sorry–It's not the democrats who desperately need this one. You seem to be in denial of the last 946 months of Republican primaries. "Reasonable Romney" would be a boon to the GOP if it weren't for his wooden personality, because none of the other candidates were electable, as proven by the primaries. It's Romney who actually keeps conservatives alive to fight another day. Had you fielded, let's say, Michelle Bachmann (I'm going for the only non-Ron Paul who was not called a RINO) Obama's margin of victory would have been historically huge.

        But that's your problem. You guys say you want a "real" conservative, but while many exist as media mavens, few of these exist in politics. Ron Paul is truly conservative–but his non-liberal foreign policy is too big a sticking point. What you NEED is a pragmatic conservative…e.g. one who could say unapologetically that the bailouts were a good thing–but those types are frequently termed "RINO." SO it ain't the dems on the ropes, here.

  • tedder

    Consider the premise that moderate Republicans are liberal 5th columnists whose primary reasons for existence are to keep conservatives out of office, to help the liberal democrat win and, failing that, to provide a liberal-lite alternative administration. Now look at the history of presidential elections of the last 20 years and try to find evidence that disproves this assumption. There isn’t any, and no such evidence will ever be forthcoming. Moderate Republicans, aka Establishment Republicans, will always live up to this stereotype.

    There certainly is nothing about Romney to give one pause. Months before Iowa, seventy percent of the Republican Party agreed on one thing, they didn’t want Romney. Yet rather than bow out, he pulled out all the stops, spent huge amounts of cash and once again the moderates have made sure no conservative will challenge a liberal Democrat for the White House.

    For conservatives the one thing McCain did right (and the one thing moderates say he did wrong) was to put a solid conservative on the ticket.

    In this the first presidential election since the rise of the TEA party, the huge conservative gains in 2010, and in spite of his continuing problem with the conservative-question, who really thinks Romney will put a conservative on the ticket?

    • Looking4Sanity

      You're not going to fix that problem in one election. But that is no excuse for conceding defeat. We can NOT allow this traitor to continue to occupy the White House another four years. Period.

      • tedder

        One Election? We've had five elections since '92, each with a moderate Republican nominee. They blew 3 of 5 races. The only reason it isn't 5 of 5 is because W. Bush won by a hair over a guy who couldn't carry his own state. Bush I, Dole, and McCain lost for the same reason: They refused to fight. They fought hard to wrench the nomination from conservatives but then were uninspired to fight against the liberal Democrat.

        Theirs is hardly the reputation of winners, Yet they continue to tell conservatives … "Conservatism cannot win. Only a moderate can win."

        In this election where all evidence shows that conservatism is in the ascendancy such rhetoric is finally being seen as an insulting lie.

        There is already discussion amongst some moderates about which moderate Republican would be best to get the nomination in 2016, assuming that Romney succeeds in making it 4 of 6.

        • Looking4Sanity

          I do not dispute your theory. In point of fact, I have been saying the same thing for decades.There is a crisis of identity coming in this country that is not one bit different than we experienced in 1858. Progressives have completely co-opted the Democrat Party and have deeply infiltrated the GOP. I'm glad that you, and others like us, are at least aware of the problem…but it didn't start in 1992. It started in 1913…basically a hundred years ago. Do you honestly hope to solve a problem that is a century old in the space of 5 elections? And have the Republicans been winning for the last 20 years?There are two minds in this country right now. There are those who believe that “Liberty For All” actually means exactly that…and there are those who believe (for whatever reason) that some people are more deserving of the fruits of their labor than others.”A house divided can not stand””I expect this nation to be all one thing, or all the other thing. What I do NOT expect is that we will continue to be divided.”- Abraham Lincoln, Republican PresidentWill it come to revolution? If we don't start taking charge of the debate, it will.

          • tedder

            Yes we've had moderate troublemakers in the party for a long time, Rockefeller Republicans et al.But their number increased dramatically under the idiotic Big Tent policy of Lee Attwater.

            But i992 is the significant starting point. That was the year that Pat Buchanan electrified the convention with his Culture War speech. Since then the Republican Party has been involved in a serious civil war.

            Together, liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans denounced the speech, denied that a culture war was in progress, and cast what was the high-water mark of that campaign year as it lowest point. Since then Moderates have continued to dismiss the "social Issues" as a loser even though every time the social issues are involve the Republican wins big (1994).

            Moderate Republican during that campaign openly expressed their contempt for conservatives and told us to shut-up, vote as told or get out of the party. Many of today's Independents are former republican conservatives.

            Moderates say only they can win but where is the evidence. We've only had one conservative nominee in the last 45 years. He won both time he ran and is considered the greatest product the Republican has produced since Lincoln. The moderates hated and opposed him and are now on record that if another , carbon-copy, or clone of Ronald Reagan does come along they will fight to deny him the nomination.

            Now come on, what is wrong with that picture.

          • Looking4Sanity

            The question is not what is wrong with the picture. We already know the answer to that. The real question is what are we going to do about it? These sh!tbirds are currently controlling the levers of power within the GOP. The TEA party movement is the first sign I've seen that the "folks" are actually wising up and intending to act. IMO, they are the best hope of regaining conservative control of the Republican Party. It will be an ugly fight to be sure. The question is whether you have the stomach for it and the endurance to see it through to it's conclusion.

          • tedder

            The existence of the TEA party is a very important point. For a US President, in his first year in office, to have an nationwide grassroots protest movement, of such unprecedented proportions, spring up as a direct result of his policies is hardly good sign. In fact, it means he is already a lame-duck. Politically, he is toast.

            The 2010 election confirmed this obvious truth by not only by costing his party the House and almost the Senate, but by the fact that many incumbent liberal Democrats and moderate Republican were knocked off by conservative challengers. Post election analysis showed Obama has lost most of the Independents and many Democrats who voted him, In addition anti-Obama feeling has inspired an unprecedented turn-out by the heretofore politically uninvolved.

            In order to promote Romney, the moderate Republican "Establishment" has ignored these facts and totally discounted the significance of the TEA party thus set the stage for their next big lie, that Obama is going to be extremely hard to beat ,therefore only a moderate who can appeal to a broad range of the electorate has any chance prevailing against him.

            Don't you think we would have loved to see such an uprising during the Carter years? or even the Clinton era? The reason it didn't is because, as bad as they were, the nation was not frightened about the immediate future of the country. The reason we see the TEA Party now is because the majority of the country, for the first time in seventy years, is scared to death not just of Obama but of liberal Democrats.

            There are at least three liberal commentators in the press, Chris Matthews, Bob Beckel, (and a third whose name escapes me), who have openly called on a sitting Democrat President to "…step aside and allow someone else to save the party."

            That has never happen before. Obama is toast. A ham sandwich can beat this guy. That is why moderates are more desperate than ever to get the nomination. How many people who support Romney are doing so because they bought into his lie that Obama is going to be hard to beat.

            But your right there isn't a lot we can do about it, other not be a party to it. All conservatives need to realize that moderate Republicans are just as much our enemies as liberal Democrats. We will never be able to regain control of the party as long as we support moderates. All conservatives should pledge never to vote for a moderate on any level.

            I have posted tracts on several cities Craigslist politics sections ( Dallas, OKC and others) under the handle NO More Half-Smart Guys. I say if we must have liberalism it is better to get from liberal Democrats. I'll vote for Obama before I vote for Romney.

            Yes thing are ever bad now, but they're not Wiemar Republic bad yet. Eventually things will get so bad that even the less-than-hardcore liberals will turn to the right wing for self-preservation.

          • teq

            As I hear it, the moderate Republicans claim that if Ronald Reagan came along, the "ikedological extremists" in the Tea Party and Evangelical associations would consider him "too liberal".

            They cite the fact that he signed theraputic abortion law as governor of California
            -Raised taxes many times, both as governor and as president
            - talked with the Russians
            – reduced the number of nukes in the world

            would get him branded as a wussy liberal. The Party has changed since Reagan's time. The Gipper would not recognize it.

    • teq

      Since he called conservatives "muffinheads' after they voted out his father, in the 1960s we can't count on his good will? Still, he knows which side his bread is buttered on; no longer pro-choice, but pro-life, no longer single mandate healthcare. Fact is Romeny will be loyal to these virtues for as long as he serves a conservative electorate. Grover Norquist put it best as CPAC, "We don't need a noble fearless leader telling us where to go. We know whee we want to go and all we need is a leader with five digits capable of signing the legislation we put before him." So romeny Will Do. Gotta get the women more excited though.

      Most of the comments are short sighted. We are in a civil cold war. Not many shots have been fired yet but that could be coming. We as TEA party members have to take the longer view. This is a generational fight and no Mitt is not the most conservative candidate. If Mitt is elected and we do not gain the Senate but keep the house he will at least keep the Senate in check. It should be our goal to get him elected and retake the Senate. We have to teach our children, grand children and great grandchildren what these United States was supposed to be. We have to teach them the Constitution. This fight will be theirs someday. Prepare them.

    as with the last election the most pertinent issue i believe is the power of the media.

    (cannot)!!!

    • Jim_C

      Good candidates make good media. Bad candidates make good media. The power of the media is overrated. These contests sell a lot of advertising for them. I can't say I sympathize much with voters who need (essentially) a two-year election cycle to "figure out" who they want to vote for. In the meantime, huge amounts of cash are raised and spent to field candidates, and volumes of finely-honed verbiage blathered, in order to woo these people–who truly have no excuse for not having made up their minds.

      Better we should cut the entire cycle–primaries and all–to a matter of months, and get rid of these superpacs who fund the spectacle.

    IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS ONE QUESTION:

    Do you believe that Romney will enforce the law better than Obama has?

    That IS, after all, the job of the Presidency. As Chief Executive, it is the responsibility of the Office of the President to EXECUTE the Laws of America.

    If you think that "Fast and Furious" gun running to Mexican drug cartels, ignoring voter intimidation by the NBPP even after they confessed to it, and not enforcing existing immigration laws qualifies as good execution of law…then by all means vote for Obama!

    Otherwise, do not be a jackass by voting for someone who you know has NO CHANCE of winning just to make some imaginary point. We do not have the LUXURY of that kind of bull$h!t this election. PERIOD.

    It is the responsibility of EVERY Constitution loving American to get this mulatto traitor OUT of the White House THIS NOVEMBER. To do otherwise makes you a traitorous cretin.

      You can add some of the bloodthirsty members of Boko Haram to that photo, too. The O Administration wants to reward them for killing Christians in Nigeria by keeping them off the terrorist list, and dumping billions of $$ in aid into Northern Nigeria for the poor, underprivileged Islamists.

    Romney's strategy should be simple: Make Obama run on his record as POTUS. Stay focused like a laser on this and don't be afraid if it makes the Dear Leader angry.

    Obama will do his best to change the narrative to something else and will play the race card. What Romney needs to do is ignore this and focus on Obama's dismal record as POTUS. Stay on message.

    Finally, I have never placed much confidence in polls. I have been a registered voter since 1984 and I have just to be contacted by one. Obama is in trouble and even if he still has the clueless dolts in the MSM on his side Romney can beat him.

    Thank YOU! I look at it like this. If you were dying of cancer, would you rather be in a hospital making even a marginal recovery, or would you rather lay in bed at home getting closer to death every day?

    The sane answer is to fight for life with every scrap of your being. You are right. It HAS to be enough…for now.

    He who fights and wins today lives to win another day!

    No country in any time and our not exception had perfect candidate. Only Almighty is perfect. How can we compare MR empty suit BHO who spent Millions dollars in 2008 to destroy his past records. Nobody knows where he was born really, who paid his tuitions in any Universities, how he achieving nothing (community organizer, that is) was elected in IL Senate, etc. Even he was not a University professor but just visiting teacher. Media controlled by Marxists covered by name democrats concocted his greatness. He even cannot make a speech without teleprompter. How anybody with common sense can compare him with Romney who is proven as wonderful MANAGER, he is brilliant businessman, who has principals (he being MA governor did not allowed President of Iran Khatami to come in his state), good American who does not hide his past, etc. Our country in the brink of distraction. if Obama be reelected we are done. those who will not vote for Romney just will help Obama to destroy finally this country and deprive future our children.

    Watch. Romney will be depicted as a Mormon religious racist zealot, a just a rich white guy who stole his money from the poor by destroying companies and firing workers – and he is going to cancel Obamcare and throw grandma off the cliff, and will cut the budget for the poor children, and deny multimillions of government money to Planned Parenthood secretjy used for abortions, and his economic approach will be called deaconian. Of course nothing will be said about Obama's clandestine antio semite Muslim faith or his racist Black Liberation Theology (Marxist ) conversion by the anti American anti semite Jeremiah Wright nor his illegal war in Libya, nor his failed foreign policies on regime change in Egypt, Lyibya, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, that will result in Muslim theocracies who will start WWIII, nor his waste of over $5 trillion dollars in less than 4 years, and his committment to seize private wealth and resdistribute it as entitlements to his dependency class at all levels, and last but not least his open disrespect for the Constitution and the rule of law.

      Out-of-touch rich white guy will suffice. Romney does a pretty good job portraying himself as such.

    Wait! Obama is going to let us have an election?

    Romney’s “Electability” Lie

    In order to believe that Obama will be a formidable opponent in 2012 a person must believe in three things:

    1.The rise of the TEA Party is of no significance
    2.The election results of 2010 are of no significance.
    3.Believe that Obama has done virtually nothing wrong, has yet to commit political suicide, is immensely popular, and the country is not scared to death of him and genuinely fearful of the immediate future.

    For a US President, in his first year in office, to have an nationwide grassroots protest movement, of unprecedented proportions, spring up as a direct result of his policies is hardly good sign. In fact, it means he is already a lame-duck. Politically, he is toast.

    The 2010 election confirmed this obvious truth by not only by costing his party the House and almost the Senate, but by the fact that many incumbent liberal Democrats and moderate Republican were knocked off by conservative challengers. Post election analysis showed Obama has lost most of the Independents and many Democrats who voted him, In addition anti-Obama feeling has inspired an unprecedented turn out by the heretofore politically uninvolved.

    Lets face reality, if a ham sandwich can't beat this guy, no one can.

    • Jim_C

      Wow. Are you a betting man?

      1. The TEA Party is of no significance. Garden variety Republicans who thought Obama was coming to take their widdle guns, was born in Kenya, and wanted the government to "keep its hands off their Medicare." Mouthed a few platitudes about too much spending (while of course being loyal Republicans, being silent under Bush), packed up their tricorns and puttered on home. Bye bye, TEA Party! See you in 2014, if the home lets you out for the day!

      2. 2010: "Economy hasn't magically turned around, let's vote against the incumbent."

      3. Killed bin Ladin and tons of terrorists, bringing troops home, saved GM, tried to do something about health care… Yep, Obama's scary all right.

    For secular Moroccans, a decision by the Islamist government that public television be banned from screening gambling ads and forced to broadcast the call to prayer, five times a day, is deeply worrying.

    The new rules, unveiled by Communications Minister Mustapha El Khalfi and which will come into force on May 1, also mean that state-run channels will have to carry much more Arabic programming than was previously the case.

    Then get accustomed to apologizing for what will be big spending Bush's fourth term if Fric wins instead of Frac. (Obama was Bush's third term)

    Romney hasn't got a clue that the cliff is approaching so what makes you think he'll hit the brakes instead of the accelerator. Do you know that Romney's top economic adviser is Greg Mankiw? Mankiw has stated that there has been only one real economist and that was Lord Keynes.

    I assume that you know of Obama's top science adviser, John Holdren of "The Population Bomb" fame. Guess who he previously advised on science? Your savior Mitt Romney, the man who wanted a regional cap and trade scheme (Holdren's baby) until the polls showed him that he was political toast if he signed it.

    Romney is Obama in every significant way. Go ahead! Vote for the Obama you don't know over the Obama you do know. You'll get more government no matter whom you vote for.
