But it's funny how Romney had similar bloodlines, but those same cons were willing to endorse him of their own free will.
So when is Obama going to make good on the second part of his "balanced approach"?

He hasn't said anything about spending cuts - the other half of his "balanced approach" - except to say he won't do it and blame Republicans for holding him to it.
Yeah

Romney didn't say anything of value about citizenship when they asked.

Romney made the choice easy, son.

When I read stuff like this it picks up my spirits to know these clueless folks have infiltrated the Republican party and will sabotage it from within. Not just you Carol but I can't think of one right wing poster on this site that has any clue at all about how their fanatic ranting turns off rational moderate middle America. We need people like waxturd, Eman, martinezjosei, John Galt, maddmaxx7 ... to start writing letters to the editor to insure a Democratic government for years to come.
Yeah

Romney defended his choice of words by saying the phrase "self deportation" means more strictly enforcing immigration laws until illegal immigrants are unable to find work and voluntarily leave the United States.
That doesn't sound so crazy to me.
lol! He did a lot of "defending" son....

Romney may have lost when the 47% video was revealed?
Romney lost the last two debates
Ryan lost the VP debate.
McCain chose Palin over Romney in 2008, interesting

GOP needs new leadership, McCain may do for now.

Republicans clearly need a candidate who can lie better than the opposition...and get away with it.

Promise everything to everybody, regardless of cost.

As for Huntsman, what would be the point?

I watched the Ghost and the Darkness the film tells a fictionalized account about two lions that attacked and killed workers at Tsauo, Kenya during the building of the African Uganda-Mombasa. I like true events movies not fiction but have watched fiction.

Republican in name only

RINOs are often Republican only to the extent it serves their own interests, and will abandon conservative principles as soon as it is in their own interests to do so. RINOs often provide support for raising taxes, abortion as a right, gay rights and gun control. Some RINOs have connections with Planned Parenthood or corporations that support goals of population control; other RINOs pay lip service to pro-life values while in practice not advancing those values.

Double standards by RINOs are common: a birther comment by Romney during his campaign was supposedly a "nothing", but Todd Akin's pro-life comment would somehow "absolutely" could cost RINOs control of the U.S. Senate!

RINOs, like Democrats, typically come from states in New England, the Mid-Atlantic; or states on the Left Coast. A less-used term is cafeteria conservative, for a person who picks and chooses which conservative principles to believe, as a person might choose foods in a cafeteria instead of ordering the full-course menu selected by the chef at most restaurants. In contrast to RINO's and cafeteria conservatives, movement conservatives understand that since conservative philosophy is a coherent whole, it is untenable to discard part of it without discarding all of it.

Romney made so many promises for his first day in office, I don't think there was much left he would do after day one. And he made those promises to so many, it was hard to figure where he truly stood on things.

That made him worse but more importantly, more dangerous than Obama.
