    I really hope Mitt Willard Romney doesn’t pull a Mccain in the general if he is the nominee. I really hope he knows what’s going to be thrown his way by Barry and the MSM press that protects and promotes him.

    Mccain pratically campaigned for that idiot currently in the WH in 2008.

    Romney will never get my vote.

    I guess Ron Paul’s rising, scare the sh..t out of you, so you will vote for that liberal scum Romney.

  • Aggie 95

    oh I’ll vote for him but God I’ll hate having to do so

    Roms said Obama was a nice guy just a few days ago. Roms is not going to campaign agaisnt Obama.
    The RNC head Rence Priebus said there wouldbe no personal mention anything regarding Obama.

    So that is game set match Listen toMSNBC. They talk glowingly of romney. You can’t believe your ears.
    But once the Nom is in and the convention is over , you won’t and romney won’t even know who he is, it will be so savage. A fin man like Justice Alito was raked over the coals to the extent that his wfe cried at the whole scene.
    But Obama a nice guy, right ? and the RNC will do nothing in the campaign to win. right?
    This is all kabuki. the GOp are marionnettes on a stage.This thing in Iowa only serves the donks.

    Aggie 95,

    So you are willing to repeat the error of 2008? Vote for Liberal John McCain?

  • Craig (The only conservative on this site)

    You will have no other choice if you want the Republicans to win. You’ll have to vote for Ron Paul… the only conservative candidate who wants to follow the Constitution.

  • Bad Actor

    If you posters on this thread really love this country, you’ll vote for Spongebob or Mickey Mouse for president if he is the republican nominee. I’m not kidding. “Keep your eyes on the prize” – we have to defeat Obama and the liberal-socialist-redistributionist machine. Everything else is meaningless.

  • Craig

    You will have no other choice if you want the Republicans to win. You’ll have to vote for Ron Paul… the only conservative candidate who wants to follow the Constitution… and the only one who can beat the illegal alien POTUS. Military people want Ron Paul, so please, respect your troops.

    Has anyone actually gone after mittens? I mean, when push comes to shove, I think he’s going to fold like a house of cards.

    I hope Newt goes thermonuclear against him!

  • Craig

    Newt is no better than Romney. You’re stuk with Ron Paul, the only decent, loyal and honnest candidate… the only conservative in that bunch of liberal kooks.

  • Ladue Pundit

    I wonder who Romney has in store for his running mate. He doesn’t associate with any real conservatives.

  • J Craig

    Al Queda states that they will name all sheep CRAIG in honor of this sheeple who bleats all the time.

    You know the anitpersperiant that’s strong enough for a man but pH balanced for a woman?

    It gave CRAIG third degree burns.

    Anyone who thinks StormFront candidate Ron Paul is a good candidate must be as brave as a Frenchmen and as smart as a Newfie. But Craig is from Montgomery County. He therefore combines these with a strong criminal streak.

  • J Craig


    I’m with you. I like a candidate who won’t change his position due to a change in the direction of the wind.

  • donh

    Newt has proven time and again that when the going gets tough, he goes off into a dark wet corner and cries. You don’t lose 50% of your support because a TV commercial contains big meany negative massages. You LOSE because there is enough substantial truth to commericals to effectively change voter minds.

  • J Craig



    Why do you always sound like a zombie on crack?

  • Patty

    Answer Hannity’s question, Romney. You can’t because you enjoy the ads you have nothing to do with. Hummmm!

    Lincoln Douglas debates Gingrich would wipe the floor with Romney.

    But you do have to roll with the punches. Obama never had too. He was off limits.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    You’re stuk with Ron Paul, the only decent, loyal and honnest candidate…

    Who says we’re “stuck with him? Nobody is obligated to cast a vote for someone they don’t particularly care for.

    And quite frankly, I’m not inclined to vote for an anti-Semite.

    No that ” I am not a Fannie May I Have Another lobbyist” lie with a big grin on face had nothing to do with Newt’s collapse. Time to change the ring tone form Abba Dancing Queen to Waterloo…>>>

    “I wonder who Romney has in store for his running mate”.

    Apparently it is Republican governor Terry Branstad who advised voters to ignore a Paul victory in Iowa:


    Other establishment GOP figures quickly piled on, and suddenly, the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses matter not, according to GOP talking points, if Ron Paul wins. Iowa Republican governor Terry Branstad advised voters to ignore a Paul victory in Iowa: “’People are going to look at who comes in second and who comes in third,’ said Branstad, adding, ‘If [Mitt] Romney comes in a strong second, it definitely helps him going into New Hampshire and the other states.’” (Coincidentally, Branstad is rumored to be one of Romney’s expedient targets for vice president.)

    The majority of the GOP gave Obama the permission to detain and hold indefinitely American citizens.

    I owe them no allegiance.

    I will not vote for Romneycare.

  • Lady Mondegreen

    Gingrich is not an option. He has made too many personal enemies in both parties and there are too many Republicans who would like nothing more than to kick him in the teeth. I think Romney is a stuffed shirt, but he’s right about one thing: Gingrich is a champion whiner.

  • Craig

    Although my name is Craig I am a little girl.

  • retire05

    Craig, the Crazy Canuck, wants us to support Ron Paul. He says Ron Paul will get things done. Perhaps Craig, the Crazy Canuck, would like to share with us all the names of the bills that Ron Paul has written, and gotten passed, in his every too long 23 years in the Congress?

    Come on, Craig, any devotee of Paul’s should know those bills. Or did Alex Jones never tell you what they were?

  • I watched this interviewed and it was hard to sit through! Romney is oil slick and something is wrong with his whole scene. And… after Newt was interviewed, he said one thing that stuck… “Mitt will say anything in campaign mode but the truth is, he’s a moderate Repub. who leans left”. Folks, we’re in trouble here with Romney. No on Romney!

    They did not do that. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 contains a background section (Section 1031) describing the underlying legislation (Public Law 107–40)

    This section explicitly does not change PL 107-40:

    “(d) CONSTRUCTION.—Nothing in this section is in- tended to limit or expand the authority of the President or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military Force.”

    or other existing law:

    “(e) AUTHORITIES.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities, relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.”

    Section 1032 specifically provides that the NDAA 2012 does not apply to US citizens or legal residents:

    (1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The require- ment to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.
    (2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The require- ment to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.”


    Lindsey Graham was right. This legislation does not apply to US citizens. It never did. Its purpose was to deal with the GITMO detainees, and it contains explicit language saying that it does not apply to US citizens.

    Following the legislation can be difficult, but it wasn’t in this case. People who think they can rip out one clause of a piece of legislation without reading the rest of it are simply wrong. Rand Paul made a fool of himself. So did Judge Napolitano, among others. There’s also some inept website that bought into this, one that purports to alert citizens to problems with legislation. It’s obviously run by people who don’t bother to verify the basics. Shame on them.

    You’d like Newt Gingrich a whole lot better if you visited his website or watched some of his actual speeches on U-Tube.

    Then, just for fun, you could compare what Newt said with what a bunch of paid liars like Rachel Maddow have said he said.

    I did that, and I sent the links I found about Newt Gingrich and education, that is his speeches, and how egregiously Rachel Maddow mischaracterized them, and I sent them to a Rachel Maddow fan.

  • Rose

    Mitt Romney is right – Newt has whined all year long.

    But then, con artists of Newt’s caliber seldom know how to suck it up and take blame for their own failings.

    Those who come in the category of “There is nothing wrong with what I DID – but you are awful for telling on me!” – such as Newt, were never meant for Public Office.

  • Rose

    Anyone will like Newt better if they listen to his speeches and ignore his RECORD of ACTIVITIES.
    Too bad I saw him LIVE laughing at Sean Hannity for 45 MINUTES at the stupidity of Southern Border Security as he PROMOTED the “PRAGMATIC” SOLUTION of the McCain Kennedy SHAMNESTY bill. Only reason he didn’t laugh the SOLID HOUR is because Sean covered one other story in the last segment.
    His pretty speeches don’t mean a cotton-picking thing to me – any more than they should to Wife #4.

    He’ll sell anything for any client.

    Mitt is a Liberal. He might win the Primaries, but he is still LEFT of the Bushes and in the category on the WRONG SIDE of the Gerald Ford/Robert Dole/ John McCain line.

    We’ve long passed the Line where “The Lesser of Two Evils” has any benefit to this nation.

    Ron Paul is a lunatic and no more of a Constitution supporter than Newt Gingrich is – his stances on Iran, WW2 Hitler, Israel, mind-altering highly addictive drugs and their Middle Eastern Muslim suppliers, and his Pacifist Ways makes him someone who would definitely destroy the Constitution. Ron Paul is a Rasputin of his day – as in “Debauched Charlatan”.

    “Pacifists are among the most immoral of men. They make no distinction between aggression and defense. Therefore, pacifism is one of the greatest allies an aggressor can have!” – Patrick Henry

  • Gary

    I agree with you. People don’t bother to read it, they just grab the tag line or the sound byte. That’s why we have to be careful who we listen to.
    Disagree. The lib media may twist it around on Newt, but Newt is his own worst enemy. He can’t deny that global warming sofa scene with Pelosi. Nobody’s twisting that. He took it upon himself to refer to Paul Ryan’s plan as right-wing social engineering. Yeah, he walked it back after the media frenzy, but that is just because it had already accomplished the goal (namely, getting his name back in the papers).
    Newt as much as declared himself the nominee a month ago.
    He said Romney would buy the election if he could. When pressed on the question of whether he thought Romney was trying to buy the election, he said “I didn’t say that. I said he would if he could.” What kind of mealy-mouthed double-talk is that. He wants the big gotcha lines that get him into the news, but then he doesn’t want the blowback.
    Seems like he’d have made the connection by now, seeing as how he is the “smartest guy in the room”.
    Me say something dumb – people get mad – me try to re-word what me said – people not forget the first dumb thing me said

    BTW, Romney would buy the election if he could (I agree) but what was Newt trying to buy with $100K purchases at Tiffany’s? What does $100K make up for that $10K doesn’t? If he and Calista ever split, I bet some good stories will come out.

  • Gary

    I liked it better when you were in jail and this forum was only inhabited by thinking people.
    Or were you stuck on a melting glacier with a polar bear?
    Or were you stuck in a vat of maple syrup?
    Or were you off helping Iran develop their nukes to apologize to the Middle East for Canada’s involvement in the war on terror. Never mind. I know that can’t be right.

    “you gotta have broad shoulders”

    Right up until we do not vote for your lying crud. Right. Drop dead GOP.

  • Aitch748

    I already have no appetite for voting for Romney’s liberal ass. Then he saturates Iowa with anti-Newt ads, and when Newt finally announces he’s preparing to return fire, Romney accuses Gingrich of whining. What a jackass.

  • Agathon

    I am old enough to remember when Newt was in the House. He was whining then, and he’s whining still. He is completely disorganized and undisciplined (unless Calista is calling the shots) and I would never want to think he was making decisions of world importance.

    I have written a scene for the movie about Mitt’s run to the White House. It is the day before Iowa. A campaign worker comes into his room at the back of the bus with a smile on his face. Mitt looks up and sees the smile. The campaign manager just stands there with the grin but doesn’t say anything. Mitt pipes up:
    “Newt is calling you a liar.”
    “No,” Mitt says incredulous. “Did he use the word himself?”
    “Pretty much.” says the campaign worker. “All the head lines are saying he is calling you a liar.”
    Mitt chuckles. “I guess he has finally lost it. Newt was pretty much off the radar anyway. Now we can completely cross him off as a serious candidate.”
    “Exactly,” says the campaign manager, “We can tell the super pac to kill the Newt ads in South Carolina.”
    “Now, Now,” says Mitt with a smile. They both look at each other and laugh at the inside joke. The campaign workers says, “I suspect they will know what to do with the ad budget on their own.”

    The scene ends as the campaign worker reminds Mitt of his next scheduled event as he walks out of the room.

  • J Descartes

    Exactly what problem or adversity has Romney ever had to deal with?

    During his military service?
    Struggling with poverty?
    Having to make sacrifices to attend school or make ends meet?
    Or was it having to choose between vacation in Maui or Graz?
