Quick Post

Published by at 8:13 am under 2012 Elections,All General Discussions

Romney handily won FL, and lost a lot of the Tea Party/Libertarians in the process. Good luck to the GOP this cycle, they either win big over Obama or else resurrect his presidency from the ashes of failure.

If all is well Obama’s poll numbers will sink back to being around 9+% underwater, the GOP edge over the Dems in the generic congressional polls will rebound to +9% and money will flow in to the campaign war chests.

If Romney’s coronation is a net negative, then the Obama’s poll numbers will go slightly positive, the Dems will be equal or lead the GOP in the congressional ballot, the coffers will not fill, and conservative media will see one of their worst years ever.

Now we sit back and wait and see. The theory and conditions are out there.

    momdear1, right on. reading that sounds exactly like what I would have said..

    and Newt is at: Stony’s Rockin’ Country Bar? damn I bet there are no tickets left for that….

    I think all you self proclaimed super conservatives have deluded yourself on a couple accounts. 1) All this “Romney is no different than Obama” talk is nonsense. I won’t even try to explain. If you really believe that then you’ve drunken the Kool-Aid. 2) You misread the mood of the country. I will explain this thought.

    In 2008 there were a lot of people out there like my daughter. Then 20, she didn’t want another Republican after Bush (had nothing to do with McCain) and she thought “It will be great for the country to have a black President so no one can say we’re a racist country anymore.” She didn’t want to listen to my warnings about the man and she was convinced he wouldn’t be “that bad.”

    Flash forward 4 years and the times have changed. All those young voters going to Obama rallies and fainting have lost all delusions that the man is competent. Just as 4 years ago they wanted anybody but another Republican – this year my daughter is sporting a bumper sticker that says “ABO (Anybody But Obama)”.

    My point is all we need to give them is a choice that looks halfway decent and they’ll abandon the annointed one. That choice does not necessarily have to be an arch-conservativre savior.

    I am not on the band wagon for the comparison argument but just adding that it’s what the Democrats will do.

    I am also not on the band wagon for staying at home to skip the election because i don’t like the GOP nominee.

    I will vote ABO (almost anyone…certainly NOT Rosanne Barr!).

    A liberal friend keeps trying to convince me that Romney represents the conservative party and that the conservatives support him. I keep telling him that just voting for Romney doesn’t mean that he has their support. They just want Obama out of the office.

    Just a few more months away! Cannot wait…January just wheezed by so fast! February is fast approaching the halfway point. Before we know it…it’s time.

    Oh yeah, you guys keeping up with the Texas primary fight? Heck, the last email I got yesterday…no one knows when we’ll have a primary or a dual primaries? No one knows when the senatorial district and state conventions will be. April 3rd doesn’t look good anymore.

    Texas RNC said that they cannot reschedule its state convention.

    The judges in San Antonio aren’t willing to do much but listen to arguments by both sides. They are pretty much stuck…we know they want to favor the Democrats but got slapped down. And they are delaying just as much as they can.

    Layman1, yeah and that comment about “to have a black President so no one can say we’re a racist country anymore.”

    sure didn’t work out well either. I think there is likely more racism today than there was 4 years ago.

    It really does need to be an ABO or Roseanne year.

  6. lurker9876 says:

    I do not “think” there is more likely more racism today than there was four years ago.

    There IS MORE RACISM today than there was four years ago.

    lurker9876 if you want to put it that way, I agree. And it is primarily promoted by the occupant of the white house.. (and I don’t ‘think’ that)
