I Will Be (Holding My Nose And) Voting For Mitt Romney

Well, it’s all but official at this point.  Rick Santorum just bowed out (to my relief) and Newt Gingrich will very likely follow Santorum to the exit.  Ron Paul, of course, will stay in the race and as long as he doesn’t wake up deciding to run as a third-party candidate, that’s fine.

I predicted Mitt Romney would be the nominee back in December – not that that was all that incredibly bold of a prediction.

What happened to the conservative Republican candidate?  Well, let’s put it in terms of a dog fight: the conservative dogs chewed each other up and ate each other’s votes while Romney ploughed ahead as the moderate.  At times, amazingly, Romney was literally untouched in debates as the conservatives bashed each other to shreds trying to position themselves as the “real” conservatives with their rivals being pseudo-conservatives.

What I kept hoping to see was a GOP nomination in which all the candidates took on Obama’s failure of leadership and Obama’s failed policies and let the electorate see who could do a better job taking the fight to Obama.  But such was never to be.  It is for that reason that I am relieved to see a nominee emerge – even if I am anything but happy with that nominee.

Romney could still jazz me up with his VP pick, mind you; that’s what happened when “Maverick” (that’s code for “R.I.N.O.”) John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate.  If Romney were to pick a Marco Rubio or a Nikki Haley, it would do much to improve my mood.

I wanted a real conservative to win the nomination.  I was hoping that we would have a Reagan rise up the way we had the last time an abject Democrat failure (that would be Carter) brought the nation to its knees.  It never happened.  It never happened; in fact, in hindsight I believe I can say that such a candidate never even ran to begin with.

So what do I want now?  I want Obama out of office.  I want “God damn America” to be in the Hall of Shame.

It’s not that I believe in my gut that Mitt Romney will be a great president; it’s that I believe in my gut that this nation cannot survive another term of Obama freed from having to worry about re-election and able to impose his “fundamental transformation” as the nation collapses all around him.  If you think that what’s been happening has been bad (88 million Americans simply dropping out of the workforce altogether; real unemployment at 10.9% if measured by the labor participation rate that Bush handed to Obama), you aint seen nothin’ yet.

In the God damn America that Obama has shaped this nation into, you don’t get a terrible president versus a great candidate; you get a terrible president versus a less-terrible candidate.  A line from a book I’m reading points out this dilemma is hardly anything new:

Hitler and Mussolini were rivals for the political affections of different constituencies in Austria, namely the Austrian Nazis and the clerical-authoritarians gathered around Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss.  For many Austrians, the Dollfuss regime presented them with the familiar dilemma of supporting, or tolerating, a lesser evil to forestall something infinitely worse. — Moral Combat by Michael Burleigh, p. 29

And welcome to the hell of choosing between merely mediocre Mitt or genuinely evil Obama.

Which is why as uninspired as I am by Mitt Romney, I am very inspired indeed to replace Barack Obama.

Before Obama implodes America with mindboggling debt that is only going to soar even more out of control with ObamaCare and other incredibly foolish policies.

One more thing: what will be Obama’s strategy against Romney?  To demonize him as no candidate has ever been demonized before.

Obama ran on “hope and change”; it was all a lie from hell – the kind of lie of glorious false promises and empty rhetoric that the world will soon see again when Antichrist comes:

Obama has been going from fundraiser to fundraiser in unprecedented fashion to raise a billion dollars that will allow him to demagogue and demonize like this earth has never seen.  Obama knows that he cannot possibly win on his failed record; he knows he has to pour fiery hate on top of the gasoline of pitting races against one another, pitting men against women, and pitting income level against income level ala Karl Marx. 

Here is a tried and true secret to how to run against a R.I.N.O. (that’s “Republican-In-Name-Only”) Republican: deceitfully frame him as an ultra-conservative.  Obama did this to John McCain and he’s already starting to do it to Mitt Romney, and here’s why it works: actual conservatives already know full damn well that it’s a hilarious lie that Mitt Romney is a “dangerous right-wing conservative” and are de-energized to support him, but the far more moderate and far more ignorant masses don’t know that – and Obama can use his giant campaign warchest that dwarfs anything history has ever seen because Obama has sold out America to special interests to turn the Republican nominee into a “right-wing bogeyman.”

A lot of Republicans are WISHING Mitt Romney were anything remotely CLOSE to a right-wing bogeyman.  But the people who still haven’t even yet bothered to tune into the election aren’t going to know anything.  And between an ocean of Obama attack ads and the mainstream media they’ll “know” exactly what they’re told to know.

Obama is going to try to frame Mitt Romney as a candidate who only cares about the rich.  But LOOK AT OBAMA’S TOP DONORS TO SEE THE TRUTH: Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan!?!?!?

How DARE this whore who has grabbed more money from more rich people than ANY political leader in the history of the human race play class warfare.  But the two things that Obama knows are that the mainstream media are his propaganda wing and that the American people are ignorant and willing to believe lies.

So you’re not inspired by Mitt Romney?  Please join the club.  But you’d better vote for him or you’re going to get hell on earth.

    You’ve said it well and I agree. Republicans have some formidable weapons on their side: Fox News, AM radio, the conservative blogosphere, and Obama’s record. It’ll be a dogfight. We can still win, even if we have an imperfect candidate.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    quinersdiner,

    The sad thing is that most people today get their “news” from late night comedy talk shows. The only way people hear Fox News, AM radio, the conservative blogosphere and know anything about Obama’s record is if they already have a predisposition to want to know the facts. And too many people simply don’t.

    The only thing on our side is the fact that there are 88 million people who have given up bothering to even try to look for a job – and their families and friends – who have reality to consider when contemplating voting for Obama.

  3. The Dauntless Conservative Says:

    MichaelE; That is what I am afraid of too…those who have given up looking for work and have no where else to turn to but gubmint.

    Unfortunately I have to agree with you Micheal. Generation X and their children have been raised on a hefty dose of liberal indoctrination. And God forbid if they went to an alleged institute of ‘higher learning’ (this would be a full blown liberal lobotomy). The sad truth seems to be that a majority of Americans either just don’t care or are ignorant of the political horrors facing this country. I think it is worth noting that there is no mention of America in Revelations. It’s as if we went the way of the dodo bird and frankly if He Who Shall Not Be Named is re-elected you can rest assured that it will be so. God already knew that America would fall prey to the progressive nutjobs, and as we have turned from Him he has taken from us the blessings given to us through the faith of our forefathers and founders. Our super power status will be change to banana republic in the blink of an eye paving the way for the Anti-Christ and all his ilk. I take comfort in God’s word though, knowing that his Son Jesus Christ will set all these things to right. And that every raving liberal lunatic knee will ultimately bow. Amen for that.

    Dauntless,

    Give me gubmint welfare and make somebody else pay for it or give me riots

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    surefirewizard,

    I used to be skeptical of the Bible BECAUSE it didn’t mention America in Revelation. After all, how can you not mention the most powerful nation in human history???

    Now that very thing that made me skeptical is cause for my deeper belief.

    America is now over $211 TRILLION in debt (see also here). There is no possible way that we can make good on our unfunded liabilities.

    And consider the massive unfunded debt that ObamaCare is going to pile on top of us (and see here).

    Consider the unhinged fool who is now leading our nation to its doom.

    Then consider the $600 trillion collapse that is going to wash over America like a tsunami.

    It didn’t have to be this way, but Democrats gave America a poison pill that will kill this nation seventy-five years ago; and they demand that we not change course until after we’re dead.

    America is not mentioned in Bible prophecy because America soon will not matter.

    Barack Obama will be the Antichrist’s “useful idiot” who paves the way for Antichrist by creating the complete disaster that will enable the beast to come riding in on his white horse to save the day (Rev ch. 6).

  7. HL Says:

    Well Said, Michael. I pray Romney chooses a strong VP. I heard him this am on FOX with Martha Mc Callum and he was the best I have ever heard him.
    If the majority of voters do not comprehend how dangerous Obama is, I fear we are doomed. As a Christian, I know my life is in the hands of my Abba Father and my Lord Jesus Christ, and that ultimately, I am eternally ‘safe’. But if Obama gets re-elected and our Lord Jesus tarries, we are in for some trying times.
