Comments: Mitt Romney Reveals the Inner Workings of His Fiendish Plan
If you like John Boehner, you'll love Mitt Romney. He just might not be as charismatic and action oriented as the Speaker.
How many times do GOP voters have to play this game before they notice they are losing?
Nobody throw more cold water on GOP voters than Romney. When the bland generic RINO loses to Messiah the RINOs and the self-deluded will have everyone but themselves to blame. Do any of you think Obama has less ability to campaign and demagogue than Santorum? Just because you are desperate to replace Obama don't project that onto the 50% that receive from the gov't and the 70% that receive all of their "news" from the commie-lib/opinion industry.
You Romney voters are walking into an ambush and taking the rest of us down with you. You think the hipster college students are going to vote for the guy from Monopoly? You think the welfare queens that are mad Obama didn't give them a house and free gas are going to vote Romney?
Voter turnout in these primaries are light. Voters are not crawling on broken glass to vote. In a low passion election the bland candidate loses.
When you telegraph to the RINO establishment that you'll vote for Romney to defeat Obama you tell them you will eat one more crap sandwich while they dine on prime rib. Why will they ever listen to you if you politely inform them you'll take their guy? You think Romney has the cojones to battle the Congress and the bureaucrats? Really? Hope is not a plan.

I don't get it.
How can you have the end of the world, and Bush not be involved?

The GOP has always been the party of big business but in years past always allied in consort with the party's working middle-class base, both understanding the necessary mutual dependence.
Today's Republican elite have aligned with the equally elite Democrat leadership for mutual profit and safety, abandoning its traditional base under the assumption that we have no choice other than bending over yet again. This is a fatal mistake.
As Forbes reported today, we may be watching the demise of the GOP. I for one would not hesitate to take the Poison Pill and support a third party effort, if for no other reason than to get rid of the greedy parasites calling themselves our conservative leadership. If this leads to the civic mayhem, and it will, then so be it.

I don't want to give up on the GOP. Politically speaking, I want to punch the RINO Establishment in the nose, and replace them. There have been a hundred preemptive surrenders by them. Each one followed by the RINOs claiming that the public anger at the sellout has been heard and they've learned their lesson, only to replay or amplify the insult next time. They HAVE learned, we HAVE NOT. They've learned the impassive base will always eat the crap sandwich if only someone tells them "next time it will be different." There has been no evidence next time will be different because the RINOs can get what they want doing what they always do.
This was highly evident with the 2000 campaign of GWB. Despite all the warning signs he was a RINO squish, one conservative after another pretended to notice important details that proved GWB was an undercover conservative. He wasn't and he governed exactly as you would expect any other RINO to govern, weakly and with no political fight in him. Does a conservative tha campaigned on no more nation building fight a war by nation building?
So what do we do when we have the chance, replay the same darn play again. Nobody will bend to a dishonest media distortion campaign like Romney will, if elected. All it will take is a few reporters showing a few losers crying on TV because they haven't received the latest unprecedented gov't benefit (like GWB and prescription drugs) and we will have the Romney plan to give more stuff to more losers. It's called the socialist ratchet. The commie-libs push for more socialism and the RINOs babysit the socialism until the commie-libs can get back in office. The only thing we don't know now is what is the new entitlement going to be when Romney is elected, but he will deliver a new entitlement.
