Why Romney Needs to Lose

It's very simple:

Romney embodies the complete abdication by the Republican Party of its responsibility to provide any semblance of counterbalance to the Democrats.

He could easily run as a Democrat. There are plenty of Democrats who have become multi-millionaires and even billionaires founding and/or running successful businesses. That doesn't make him a Republican. What does?

Will the Republican "base" ever get tired of being taken for granted so completely? It's gotta feel pretty insulting.

You do know that by default this thread makes you an Obama supporter.
You don't get it both ways.

How does it feel to be an Obama supporter?
What makes you think Obama will make a better president?

Do you agree with Obama's policies?
Did you vote for Obama the last time?

More than it needs 4 or 8 of Romney, yes.

To the OP you are absolutely right. I can and will not vote for Romney. Not because he gives Republicans a bad name, I could care less, but because he gives conservatives a bad name. He is in no way a conservative, but somehow because being conservative has become synonymous with being a Republican. With either him or Obama in office the country is going to fall. It's just that I would rather see it fall under a liberal than a "conservative"

Seriously, you would rather see your country fall under a liberal than a conservative?

...and you call yourself an American?

This country is NOT going to fall under either party.
Sorry to disappoint you.

You need to have a little faith in your country.

Neither Romney or Obama can cause this great country to fall.
Both are just bumps in the rocky road of history.

You Ron Paul/Barack Obama supporters need to get your priorities straight.

Not great, but Romney makes it easier for me every day. I'm sure by election time I'll have no problem with it.

Technically, no, but if you believe some people's theories about any action (or inaction) other than a vote for McCain having been a vote for Obama, then maybe.

So now that I've answered all your questions, will you return the favor? What makes Romney a Republican, and does he or does he not embody the complete abdication by the Republican Party of its responsibility to provide any semblance of counterbalance to the Democrats?

I can't be a Romney supporter with that name, can I? It's one or the other, right?

On this one point I agree with you 100%. Without that fear, I see no reason to vote for Romney, for the reason I opened this thread with: We need to encourage opposition in our government, and a Romney victory will quash that.

Romney doesn't have to be a republican, a conservative or anything else.

All he has to do is defeat Barack Obama.

So, if there is no difference, why is the main stream media working so hard to get 0bama re-elected?

You really think Mittens is going to nominate a couple of Supremes that are going to be as radical as Kagan and Sotomayor?

Ronulan please.

We already know Barack Obama won't bring down this country, so why is his defeat so important? Why does it not matter who Romney is? If Romney kicked in your door, defecated on your couch and flipped you the bird on his way out, would you still vote for him?

Where's the line that Romney has to cross before you refuse to vote for him?

None of them are worth a damn in my opinion. It's a sorry state of affairs when the best we can come up with is Romney or Obama. I will vote a straight Republican ticket though because I believe Romney is better than Obama.

The main stream media is in the entertainment business and in that business you need a protagonist and an antagonist. It's just show business. It doesn't reflect reality.

Paulbot, Gundude, is on record as an Obama supporter to teach America, especially the GOP a lesson for not electing his man.

I believe Barack Obama is truly hell bent on destroying the American capitalist system, and turning us into a full blown socialist country.

He wants us to cease being a world superpower and get in line with all the other "one world order" countries.

He wants to destroy the American individualism and independence that made this country great.

For this reason, I'll vote for anyone who stands a chance of defeating Obama.

If that's Romney, then he's got my vote.

I will also be voting Republicans for congress. I still hold a glimmer of hope that they may one day finally stand up and say "stop!".

But with Romney at the helm, 2001-2006 will look like the golden years of fiscal conservatism, with either Republicans or Democrats in congress. If I had to wager, I'd say there's far more chance of Obama being forced to be more fiscally conservative in his second term than Romney ever would be.

So you're saying they only acted like they hated Bush 43 and are only acting like they love 0bama.

Seems your reality is different than reality.
