First up – Jim Rob isstillthrowing a hissy fit about Romney.
Me? I can’twait for the day Romney gets the nomination. We’ll have to all work double shifts to clean the exploding head detritus off the iso chamber walls.
The day the tea party embraces Mitt Romney is the day the tea party accepts defeat

First there was the Reagan Revolution, then Newt’s Republican Revolution, and now the Tea Party Revolution.
Then the Palin Phenomenon, then the Perry Phenomenon, then the Cain Trainwreck, then the Bachmann-Turner Overreach. How is this trend looking to ya so far, Jimbo?
In each successive revolution, the lovers of liberty threw off a bit more of the yoke of the oppressive ruling class to reestablish some vital part of our God given liberty and freedom.
But enough about Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos
Pro-life, small government, big defense Ronald Reagan set and accomplished the goal of bringing down the socialist Soviet Union as a threat to the world and reestablished free America as the dominate superpower. He rescued America from the hapless Jimmy Carter who had dragged the nation down into to the depths of despair.
And all this time I was thinking thatReagan was president in 1982.
Reagan taught us that our best years were indeed yet to come. He reinvigorated our economy by reducing government regulations and taxes and created a free market environment ripe for capitalism to flourish.
Um – the corporate giveaways and capital gains tax cuts occurred in 1981.
A lover of life and freedom, he fought off the socialists and merchants of doom and death at every turn
Nah – that was just him confusing movies he was in with reality.
and sparked the beginning of the decades long Reagan Economy. He was a champion of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and he delivered us from evil.
While sleeping at Cabinet meetings and ony waking to spin multiple plates on sticks while singing the Catalina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallendiner song, yes, yes, we get it.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Reaganite, Newt Gingrich, set and accomplished the major goal of wresting the congressional majority away from the socialist Democrats who had held it for forty years. His conservative Republican Revolution cut the taxes, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut unemployment, blocked President Clinton’s progressive agenda, blocked HillaryCare, reformed welfare, defended life, and balanced the budget four years running, ensuring that the Reagan Economy flourished and stretched throughout his term and beyond.
Mitt Romney set goals of protecting and sustaining abortion as safe and legal in America. He sought to be more radical than Ted Kennedy in respects to “gay rights.” He swore to defend Massachusetts’ strict gun-control laws that “kept us safe” and promised not to chip away at them. He set and accomplished the goal of bringing big government healthcare solutions to his state and mandating that all formerly free citizens must purchase a government approved product or suffer a tax penalty. He loves mandates against the people.
He stated that he was an independent during Reagan-Bush and he was not returning to Reagan-Bush. And he didn’t. Instead, he delivered taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun-control, socialized healthcare, busted budgets, ruined economy, liberal activist judges and a destroyed Republican label.
It’s funny as fuck, you bunch of losers complaining aboutsomebody else destroying the “Republican Label”.
Nice of you to admit that it’s just another product with a shitty ad campaign, though.
Romney was and is demonstrably per record an anti-Reagan, pro-big government, pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-gun-control, anti-liberty, pro-socialist healthcare, mandate-loving, liberal judge appointing, budget busting progressive.
He is without a doubt the exact opposite of Reagan, Gingrich, the Reagan Revolution, the Republican Revolution and the Tea Party Revolution.
If the Tea Party now embraces Romney, it will have accepted defeat and surrendered to the ruling class.
There is a reason why the elite establishment GOPers are pushing the anti-Reagan Romney and rejecting the pro-life, Reaganite Newt Gingrich. And I guarantee you, it’s not in the best interest of the Tea Party or the Liberty we seek.
Not on my watch!! No Romney, no way!!
(Dec 29)But the Rasmussen Reports survey contained additional positive data for Romney. The poll showed 75 percent of those who identified themselves with the tea party movement supported Romney over Obama.
Why does the Tea Party hate America?
Rebellion is brewing!!
To: Jim RobinsonIf the Tea Party now embraces Romney, it will have accepted defeat and surrendered to the ruling class.
What if Romney eventually becomes the GOP nominee, and in Nov. ’12 it’s either him or another 4 years of America’s Chickens Coming Home to Roost?
Should the Tea Party very begrudgingly mumble some kind of wet napkin support for Romney, or write off the White House and focus on Conservative House/Senate candidates to thwart the Executive Branch?

> What the Tea Party needs is to pack the Congress with like minded conservatives.
Excellent point and one that bears repeating.
I’m not spending anything on the Presidential race. The field ranges from iffy to horrible. I’m saving my bucks to spend on Congressional races where we have a chance to turn the tide.
I suggest we all do the same. Congress is where we can override Zer0 or a capitulating RINO.
I remember a time not too long ago when Ann Coulter was welcomed at FR; there are still pictures of her with FR members somewhere back in the archives. But here she is, solidly in bed with Romney and the other northeastern RINO’s/liberals.
Whether its her love of Chris Cristie (She likes an obese person? Add their two weights together and divide by two and you have that of a normal person) or what, I don’t know. But she has abandoned conservative principles and now joins those who shun Newt and other Tea Party conservatives. Besides the above linked article, she appeared on O’Reilly’s show last night to hammer home her conversion. Even Rudy (whose fate on here we know) has defended Newt which shows how far out in the Boston tide flats Romney has walked.
