Conservatives torn over defending, opposing Romney

WASHINGTON (AP) - Torn between reality and their political dreams, leading conservatives are defending Mitt Romney against attacks on his work in the private sector even as they search for a more palatable candidate amid a growing sense that his nomination may be certain.

Romney is marching steadily through South Carolina, a state still uncertain about him, and picking up a prominent conservative’s endorsement while sending a message to his party: It’s time to stop the bickering.

Not just yet, some conservative leaders say.

Conservatives torn over defending, opposing Romney

I will not parse my words in regards to Mitt Romney and what I think about him and his brand of politics.

I do NOT believe Mitt Romney is, in ANY way, a Conservative. I don’t believe Romney is a true Republican. I am convinced, and have been for a very long time, that Mitt Romney is, at best, a RINO, a Republican In Name Only, and more than likely, nothing more than what I like to call ‘Dem Lite’.

“Honestly, it looks like Governor Romney’s nomination is inevitable,” said the Rev. Robert Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas. “Evangelicals, come November, might have to hold their noses and vote for the lesser of two evils. But it’s not November yet.”

This isn’t the first time Rev. Jeffress have spoken out in regards to Mitt Romney. Back in October of last year Rev. Jeffress was a featured story on this blog for making the following statement: Pastor says Romney is not a Christian.

I am not in a position to determine just who is or isn’t a ‘good Evangelical Christian’, and again I say, I would hate to see this election come down to who can scream the name of  JESUS the loudest.

As a good friend of mine that is a Minister has said, “People often ask me this question about Mormonism, Catholicism, and lots of other isms. My answer is pretty much always the same, I’m not in management and those decisions are made well above my pay grade.”

I know that Rev. Jeffress is a Rick Perry supporter, so am I, but that is where we part in our commonality. I’m not qualified to judge the “Christian” that any person has in them. My issues with Mitt Romney aren’t over ANY religious belief, my issues are based solely on what I see as a person that is NOT a Conservative, and THAT is a position I will stand and grade out, as the case may be.

The other issue I have is the FACT that the RNC has been in the tank for Romney since well before ANY caucus or primary vote was held. Mitt Romney is the chosen one by the RNC, and apparently, We, The People, have NO voice in the matter.

You think not? Read the words of Georgette Mosbacher in this post: Romney to be GOP nominee – Elections no longer required.

Someone tell me again, just what, exactly, is the difference between the Dems and GOP?

As of late, for quite a long time actually, I am seeing very little difference between the GOP and the Democratic party, at least on the RNC/DNC (BIG PARTY) end.

I know there is a world of difference between the average Republican or Conservative on the street as opposed to the average Democrat. Look at who supports Obama and Occupy and that should provide you with all the difference you could ask for.

Then take a long hard look at Mitt Romney, the Republican of choice.

The only discernible difference between Mitt Romney and Barack  Hussein Obama? A different level of melatonin and the known and indisputable fact that Romney really was born in the USA.

For what it’s worth, Saul Alinsky was born in the USA too.

    The difference anymore between the two? Not damned much at all.

    I am tired of the featherbedding bastards and bastardettes who live to do nothing but get re-elected. I’m not a believer in altruism per se and I wasn’t too sure about Mother Teresa. By the time 95+% of politicians arrive in a state capitol or the national level, they’re mostly gone. There are, of course, a few exceptions but they are far from the rule. Money and power. That sums it up. And moreover, having the POWER to CONTROL the MONEY.

    With a few select exceptions, there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference.

    There’s no way a Conservative is going to be elected Governor of Massachusetts. That in itself should tell Conservatives about Romney’s credentials.

    My problem with Romney is is willingness to compromise and please whoever he happens to be speaking to. I have no problem with him or anyone else who happens to run for the Presidency being a Mormon. I spent 26 years active duty in the USAF, rising to the rank of Senior Master Sergeant. The man who taught me what it was to be a Senior NCO; to be a leader and manager of men was a Mormon Bishop. For five years he took me and other upcoming NCO’s under his wing and groomed us for increased responsibility; he led by example. He never tried to force his religion on anyone nor did he ever put his bishop duties ahead of his military obligations except for one occasion. On that occasion we had a KC-135 crash on landing, killing the flight crew of six men. The co-pilot was one of his church members and he left work, as the man’s minister, to tell his wife and children their husband/father would never be coming home again. Throughout my military career, I have witnessed Mormons serve honorably, putting their military duties before all else with many, like the co-pilot, paying the ultimate sacrifice.

    As much as I would like to agree with this post, I also look at the reality of politics. I do not like it when religion is used as a measuring stick for who deserves to run or serve. In fact I will step out and say I have a problem with most organized religions, but that is another debate. I would rather see Rick Santorum make a strong showing in South Carolina, who I feel does represent a true conservative view point. I just don’t trust Rick Perry. Even though Mitt does not fit the true definition of a “conservative” I have to look at the bigger objective. To remove the Communist-in-Chief from office. This country can not afford another term of Obama. Which candidate gives us the best option to remove him? I don’t know. I guess you could call me a “lettuce head republican” — meaning I would vote for a head of lettuce over any democrat. Just my two cents.

    the RNC has been in the tank for Romney since well before ANY caucus or primary vote was held. Mitt Romney is the chosen one by the RNC, and apparently

    The above philosophy is the same philosophy that brought us McCain as the GOP candidate for 2008: give the nomination to the one whose “turn” it is.

    Apparently, the RNC has decided that it’s Romney’s “turn.”

    Crony politics — wherein the will of WE THE PEOPLE doesn’t matter a tiddler’s damn.

    Weep for America.

    Well I certainly have no problem with knowing what’s what and am not torn up to say… Mitten’s is a lame ass libber and Obama Lite! Period, no discussion about it. I also agree with BZ. Most politicians, by the time they hit Washington, DC, are soulless fools because they have sold their soul to the highest bidder.

  6. Bunkerville says:

    When I saw McCain out there on the stump with Romney, I thought that says it all. Nice to have a reminder of all of the bad highway we are going down, in a good measure because of this dude. Two RINOs perfect together.

  7. Bob Mack says:

    Regarding Willard…er, Mitt, I wrote this t’other day:

    …the Stormin’ Mormon is polished and glib and moderate and he has the kind of hair that marks him as a serious contender—all qualities our liberal pundits find admirable in a Republican during primary season. Afterwards, of course, they’ll suddenly discover that he was all along a dangerous right-wing Neanderthal Nazi, unfit to declaim from the same podium as the Democratic incumbent—but that lies in the future. For now, their job is to ensure that the Republican nominee is someone unlikely to rock the Ship of State as it sails up Socialist Creek.

    And Mitt is just the guy…

  8. Patrick Sperry says:

    It sure is beginning to look like yet another “hold your nose” and vote election…

    If only Allen West had decided to run!

  9. Steve Dennis says:

    There is no doubt in my mind that Romney is a RINO and probably even a liberal; he has no core political beliefs other than he believes he should be president and he will say whatever he has to in order to get elected and I fear he will govern that way as well.
    Romney has been chosen for us and you have to wonder what the party is thinking, this is how we got John Mccain also and how did that turn out? We are on the verge of making the same mistake, when will the RNC ever learn?!

  10. Longstreet says:

    Romney WILL be the GOP nominee. Romney WILL lose the election to Obama.

    Obama’s machine has been gearing up to destroy Romney for years and when they unload, it ain’t gonna be pretty. Like McCain’s campaign, Romney’s campaign is a total waste.

    Of course, you may do as you wish, but I am preparing for a total take-over of the US by the socialist/communist gang that groomed Obama and paved the way for this over several decades.

    No one, to my knowledge, has mentioned the likelihood of the replacement of at least two Supreme Court Justices during Obama’s second term. When the court goes socialist, the country is lost.

    The GOP is toothless. Until the US has a truly “conservative” political party to counter the Obama socialists we will continue to lose political contests.

    I so hoped I would not live to see this, but, alas, I have.

    I echo all of your thoughts about Romney. Having said that, I believe he will be the nominee. Depressing. I will vote for him if I have too, even acknowledging all that you have said, because there are some in our Party who will try to hold him in line. We have a chance for success if we can take the Senate in good fashion with conservatives, and if we strengthen the House.

    It’s the best I can hope for (altho I can pray for a miracle), other than the deep hope that Obama is out in the next election.

    I’m convinced our fate will be determined by the Senate, no matter who sits in the Oval.

  12. Patrick Sperry says:

    Well..? Romney will get the same treatment from Fred and myself that Bush received I’m sure. That said?

    I myself am looking to control the House and Senate if at all possible. Finding a true Conservative that can take the obama to the cleaners is probably a waste of time and energy…
