Poll: 20% of North Carolina Blacks Will Vote for Romney

By Debbie Schlussel

As you know, I’m not that excited about this year’s Presidential election because little will change no matter who wins. If elected, Romney will continue the same lack of immigration enforcement as we had under Obama and Bush. I’m not all that sure he’ll appoint conservatives to the Supreme Court. Remember how Bush chose Harriet Miers and only reneged after conservatives made a huge fuss? And, as Bush did very frequently, I’m sure he’ll appoint liberals to the federal courts all over America, which is where the real decisions on the bench are made (few cases are ever heard by the Supremes). In the Middle East, nothing will change. Romney will oppose settlements in Israel, just as Obama and Bush did. Domestically, he’ll pander to Muslims, just as Obama and Bush did, and he’s already begun doing that. At this point, the economy will not get better, regardless of who is in the White House, because we don’t make things in the U.S. anymore, so there just won’t be the jobs we need to sustain economic growth. Those are the important issues to me. And there isn’t much difference between them, though liberal Romney is a tiny microscopic hair better, despite his phony claims of being much more to the right, during the GOP primaries. Flip-floppers never change, and you’re always on the wrong side of the flip . . . or flop. The only difference, really, is that one of them will have to run for re-election and the other can do whatever he wants since he’d be term-limited. I will probably hold my nose and vote for the fraud Romney, but I won’t be happy about it. Ever. Anyone who is excited about this lying, lackluster dullard is a geek . . . and a fool. He is no different from Bush, probably worse, and again, just a teeny-tiny hair better than Obama. Now, it looks more and more like he’ll win and that Blacks–96% of whom voted for Obama–will vote for Romney in significantly higher percentages than McCain got. And the Blacks in North Carolina aren’t different than Blacks anywhere else. We know they aren’t as motivated by Obama this time around. But the change is stark and surprising:

President Barack Obama won a squeaker in North Carolina in 2008 thanks in large part to overwhelming support among the state’s African-American voters, who made up nearly a quarter of the electorate.

Today, his support among the state’s blacks has dropped sharply, potentially tipping North Carolina back to the red. A new PPP poll found that if the election were held today, a fifth of the state’s black voters would side with Mr. Obama’s Republican rival, Mitt Romney. In 2008, according to exit polls, just 5% of North Carolina black voters went for Sen. John McCain.


With just 36% of the state’s white voters siding with Mr. Obama in the PPP poll, Mr. Romney now leads the state, 48%-46%, the poll found, a sharp gain in Romney backing since PPP surveyed the state in April. Pollsters say Mr. Obama’s support for same-sex marriage could cost him votes among socially conservative black voters in the state.

Overall, a sizable 20% of all Democrats in the state say they would vote for Mr. Romney. . . .

The poll of North Carolina voters, conducted June 7-10, has an error margin of 3.4 percentage points.

So, it looks more and more like Romney will pull this off. That’s not the important part. The important part will be getting him to do a single conservative thing he pretended he’ll do.

And don’t hold your breath on that. Mitt happens. It’s easy to attack their slob. Just wait until we have our slob.

I won’t hold my nose so hard if he picks Rubio or West as VP. If he picks Christie, I’ll need to induce vomiting.
I have a feeling that if Obama’s ratings keep going down, he’ll throw Biden under the bus …and pick the neutered Hilary, to try and win back some votes.

I agree with you 100%. I cannot stand the fact that we have such terrible choices and the best thing anyone can say about Mitt Romney is, “At least he’s not a commie!” Yep, I’ll reluctantly go to the polls this time around. Might need some aspirin for grinding my teeth while voting.

Kristy on June 13, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Yes, I too find it very difficult to get excited about Romney. I have a similar set of litmus tests, and if any candidates fails on one, that candidate is not worthy to be elected. My tests are: (1) the economy; (2) national defense; and (3) backing Israel. Sure, there are plenty of other issues, but these three are my cornerstone tests, and if a candidate is weak on any of these, he/she will probably be no good on several other issues as well. And in my view, these three tests are actually interrelated.

    I do think that Romney is likely to be better than Obama on the economy and national defense. Although Romney has a Harvard MBA just like George W. Bush, I think most of us would agree that Romney actually did learn something about running businesses, whereas Bush did not. Romney’s background could translate into sound government economics policies, such helping the U.S. to make use of its tremendous natural gas resources, and to help transform the U.S. from a foreign oil importer to a powerhouse natural gas exporter. And Romney certainly understands better than Obama does that a strong national defense also helps the ecomomy.

    And that brings us to Israel, which is also interconnected. Most people don’t know it, but a substantial portion of the money that the U.S. sends to Israel, comes right back to the U.S. to purchase defense resources so that Israel can protect herself and to provide a measure of stability in the Middle East. And, in fact, Israel is the source and/or testing ground of many of the innovations that are developed for the national defense of both Israel and the U.S.

    Billionaire Sheldon Adelson certainly knows all these things and more, and may help to point Romney in the right direction. With Gingrich out, Adelson is now backing Romney. There are some positive signs already. According to Paul R. Pillar, a visiting professor at Georgetown University for security studies, and formerly a top analyst for 28 years at the Central Intelligence Agency, Romney asserts that he will FOLLOW Israel in setting U.S. policy in the Middle East:

    “The attributes of the new breed of conservatism have major implications for the foreign policy postures of today, including the positions of this year’s presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney.”

    “Those positions include unbridled confidence in the all-purpose efficacy of U.S. military power, spending to expand that power substantially without regard to either specific uses of that power or fiscal implications, acceptance of permanent conflict with adversaries (including even the legacy Cold War adversary, Russia), rejection of engagement with adversaries, and contracting out a major portion of U.S. foreign policy to the government of Israel.”

    “Romney has said: “The actions that I will take will be actions RECOMMENDED AND SUPPORTED by Israeli leaders.” This is very different not only from what Richard Nixon did but also from what conservatives who opposed Nixon favored.”

    So, perhaps there is hope for an improvement in this nation’s policies under a Romney administration. I might actually get excited about Romney if he picked Mike Pense as his VP choice–but there’s probably little likelihood of that happening. And I’ve learned from experience that when your heart tells you one thing and your head tells you another, go with your head. So, in the end, Debbie may be right about Romney.

    Ralph Adamo on June 14, 2012 at 1:18 am

I hate to say this, but these polls are meaningless at this point in the election. We are five months away from election day. A lot can happen between now and then. Also, by the time that the election is held, the country will be a lot more focused on the issues, and will have a much better idea of who stands for what.

Oh, one more thing, my prediction is that a lot more is going to come out about each candidate, we have already learned quite a bit about Romney’s past and new things are coming up all the time.

Don’t say it’s over yet.

A Reader on June 13, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Sorry, I completely disagree. The blacks will again vote 95% for Obama. Why? Well, besides the fact he is black, their ministers will tell them how to vote and blacks are very serious about listening to their ministers. Already, Holder is going to black churches, and telling the congregants that their vote is under attack by Republicans.

In the 1940’s and early 50’s in the South, the white businessmen’s associations use to pay off the black ministers to keep the congregant’s passive by giving the minister a new Buick or Cadillac every few years. (We had relatives down south who saw this) Trust me, the Democratic Party is going to be enriching the GM dealerships this year.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    I fully expect blacks to vote almost unanimously for Obama. Its the racism, stupid.

    Jews, the other main Democratic voting bloc will go heavily again for Obama, it just won’t be 80% like in 2008. He’ll probably carry two thirds of the Jewish vote this year.

    NormanF on June 13, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    Well I must be the 5% of blacks in America that didn’t vote for him the first time in 2008. I seriously doubt it’ll be 95% because many blacks have turned on him. More like 75%.

    Squirrel3D on June 14, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Its not over yet. Mittens’ main problem is he doesn’t excite conservative all that much. The only reason to want to get him in office is he’ll be constrained for the first four years. Obama can and will go further to the Left if re-elected, since he’ll never have to face the voters again.

A terrible choice and neither candidate is particularly good for America.

NormanF on June 13, 2012 at 5:21 pm

most important is to get rid of Husain Barak Soetoro Keyatta

jerry1800 on June 13, 2012 at 5:40 pm

Well, as I’ve said before, I will not vote for Mittens. Voting for the lesser of two evils when both evils are really serious has, over time, produced all the political problems we have now.

I think the US will survive another term of Hussein. However, I do not think it will survive an alternation between Bushes, Clintons, and Husseins for another 16 years.

There was no need to nominate a worthless Mitten. It was not too much to ask for a reasonably consistent economic conservative who opposed Islamic depredation and illegal immigration. I am was demanding for a “right-winger.”

So, I’ll stay home.

skzion on June 13, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    I agree with you Skzion, I to think that I’ll sit out and not vote this November, like if our vote is going to count, and from what I’ve heard and read, a company in Spain bought some of our voting machines here in the US, I don’t mean to sound like a conspiracist with my analogy.

    Debbie, I have to respectfully disagree with you regarding Mitt Romney and the Middle East, I think he’ll hold the islamofascists in check and more likely protect Israel from their arab-muslim enemies who want to eradicate them from society. However, I do agree with you that he’ll cozy up to the muslims here in the US like what Obama is currently doing and what George Bush Jr. did during his 8 year reign as president. If Romeny is elected, he’ll be to the “center” or “center-left”, and I’ll be honest with all of you, I’d favor a “center-left” over this far-left marxists administration we currently have right now.

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on June 13, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Correction:

“I am was demanding for a “right-winger.””

Should read:

“I was not demanding a “right-winger.””

skzion on June 13, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Skzion, the last half way decent president was Reagan. Since then we have always voted for the lesser of two evils. If you think we can survive another four years of Obama, you are wrong. The next four years will be Obama uncorked. He will be extremely dangerous. It will take Romney four years to gear up, just like Obama.

Not voting for Romney IS a vote for Obama. One hair’s difference is better than nothing.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    JEG, but why don’t we see halfway decent candidates? The candidates that are offered depend largely on which we would ultimately accept. In other words, this is a chicken game between republican elites and politically active rank in file. We have been playing this game repeatedly, and the consequences are as you note.

    I’m not being unreasonable. I know full well that my ideal candidate could not win. BUT, a halfway decent one could win, and I plan to pay this iterated chicken game differently from now on.

    skzion on June 14, 2012 at 12:07 pm

The test for me about whether the person is a true conservative or not: Were they smart enough to know at the very beginning of the Arab “Spring” that this was going to turn out very badly for the United States and Israel? Did they know that overthrowing Qaddafi and other dictators would make a country more radical and dangerous?

As soon as Romney is elected, he is going to say how wonderful the Obama regime was and how he intends to “work together” with Democrats and how he will pursue the same foreign policy.

Like North Carolina, there is no way that Virginia is going to go Democratic this election. Governor McDonnell won by 17 points, and the legislature is controlled by Republicans, all from voting since Obama came to power. Blacks are also 20 percent of the population, and since Obama barely won Virginia in 2008 (voter fraud by illegals and foreigners, including many Muslims, probably determined the outcome), he will also lose it this election if many blacks decide not to vote.

JM on June 13, 2012 at 5:53 pm

Oven, I don’t trust that sneaky Rubio one bit. What is it about him you like? He’s like a slimmer Christie minus the bombast and twice as slick. He just rubs me the wrong way.

I agree with JEG. When you don’t vote, you are spitting on our greatest attribute…FREEDOM. This is not Putin’s Russia…yet! I’d vote for “Jo-Jo The Donkey” as a write in rather than NOT vote. Even when I was clueless (when I voted for Perot and GASP! Ralph Nader in 2000!!!!!) I ALWAYS voted. The people I don’t want to vote are the ones who are as clueless as I was!

DS did a great job of summing up the trouble with this election. I am voting for Romney but only because we must get rid of Obama-Putin! Her column is spot-on and sobering.

However, I am NOT voting for Scott Brown. No way! I will vote for the crackpot (but NOT Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren!!!!) on the ballot. Obama-Putin is so dangerous and he is the ONLY reason I am voting for sh***y Mitty.

Look at how horrible the Republicans are in Congress. I predict they will NOT condemn Holder and let he and the WH skate. DISGUSTING!!!! Weak as water. And yet the Liberal meme is that the Republicans are soooooo extreme! As if!!!!

Skunky on June 13, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Skunky, sometimes the act of voting at one time undermines one’s future political votes. The republican establishment must learn that the result of forcing mittens on is is that we day “none of the above.”

    skzion on June 14, 2012 at 12:13 pm

      Skzion, I agree with you 100% BEFORE the advent of Obama-Putin. But it is way more serious than that. We gotta get that freak out of there.

      The way the media and LSM cover for him should have scared you silly by now. NOW I know how people just accept despots when they take over. Never did before (because I am American!!!)

      I am doing what you say with Scott Brown. He does NOT have my vote!!!

      Skunky on June 14, 2012 at 4:37 pm

        But Skunky, Brown may well be the only type off electable republican. Mittens is not the only type of electable republican. So what i’m suggesting applies more to Mittens than to Brown.

        skzion on June 15, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I do not think that that 20% would actually go out and vote for Romney, but they may just stay home. I think at least some Blacks are beginning to realize that the Democratic Party is increasingly shifting its attention to Hispanics, and away from Blacks. Also, there probably is some sense of betrayal with the party’s decisive shift towards gay marriage. Illegal immigration greatly damages their employment prospects. The Democratic Party’s full embrace of gay marriage puts them on the spot, since that is not a popular stance in the Black community.

Worry01 on June 13, 2012 at 6:13 pm

However, I heard that Obama’s going to get 100% of the cemetery vote.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 13, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Good one.

    skzion on June 14, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Voting is not really an attribute of freedom in and of itself. In order for voting to be meaningful, voters need some control over what types of programs the candidates represent and will work for. We don’t have that here. So by and large, voting is really somewhat of a facade. For instance, most Republicans are against illegal immigration and affirmative action, but when was there a major candidate who responded to these concerns?

Little Al on June 13, 2012 at 6:22 pm

And we know the Republicans are not really opposed to Obamacare. Too many of them are making money from it. Look at the clown Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin. So it’s not really freedom if you don’t have candidates who believe in the same things you do.

Little Al on June 13, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Also, I think there is slight shift in the black community that will become more noticeable soon: The admission that Obama is not black. He was raised by his white mother and a Muslim Indonesian. He can’t stand fast food, and he is not patriotic or socially conservative. He is neither black or really American. Remember how loyal they were to the first black president Clinton in 2008? I bet a lot of blacks do not vote this election.

JM on June 13, 2012 at 6:31 pm

Although voting certainly potentially represents freedom. We don’t want to give it up.

Little Al on June 13, 2012 at 6:38 pm

PROSPERITY > OABAM

P. Aaron on June 13, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I love you Debbie. However, I just can’t stand it that you’re always right. Just joking, your being correct in your analyses just only confirm my own premonitions that if we fail to deter, the more than obvious threats, facing us in our midst, through politically correct notions, we run the risk of prolonging this easily winnable battle with our mutual foes.

Mark Hammond on June 13, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I honestly don’t believe Romney, if elected, will be as bad as Bush. Bush is kind of the gold standard of republican awfulness. He was the Republican Carter and I truly hope we have seen the political end of his useless family. Surely no one could be that bad of a Republican again.

Moreover, I do believe that if conservatives keep on Romney, as they are more inclined to do than they were during the Bush years — Big mistake! — then a Romney administration may be tolerable to some extent. Note I am not saying great. Just better.

Now if Romney were to get 20% of the black vote, that would be really something, a huge shift. I will believe it when I see it, however. Pandercons have been saying for years if republicans can only get a teeny-tiny percentage increase in the black vote, they will be the majority party forever. A pleasant fantasy but not terribly likely.

J'Kel on June 13, 2012 at 7:17 pm

Twenty percent of a black vote? Pretty good for a HONKY!

RT on June 13, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Hey Debbie, have you finally apologized for your lies on Holocaust? Have you said sorry for your hating campaign against Poland? Have you committed that American Jews were making great deals with the Nazi Germany, contributing to the creation of the death ‘factories’? Haven’t noticed.

Jimmy John on June 13, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Hey Jimmy, do you ever get tired of spamming? Does what you have just typed have anything at all to do with this Mitt Romney and he Black vote? Why don’t you apologize to everyone in here for being troll craving attention?

    Worry01 on June 13, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Hey Jimmy, as my pal “Worry” explained to you 15 minutes ago, do you EVER get sick and tired of spamming and trolling here around the clock endlessly making a fool of yourself? Lookit, if you don’t like DS that much, then why the hell are you commenting here? You’re wasting your time and our time as well you putz, and regarding the holocaust, you pollacks took Debbie’s word of context and overreacting, and I think Skzion is right about you Poles on what he said about you folks on monday, you Poles have the worst IQ in all of Europe, now wonder alot of people in todays world make alot of Polish jokes, because of Poles like yourself Jimmy!

    Hey Jimmuh,

    I have a some questions for you friend. First do you have any proof that Debbie lied about how your country was such a Nazi capitulating suckhole during WWII? And what does your little troll tirade have to do with the topic being discussed? Why don’t you apologize to her for being a knuckleheaded moron.

    Ken b on June 14, 2012 at 9:49 am

Problem is that the candidates we like have a tough time in the GOP primaries themselves, much less the general elections. I mean, remember what happened to Tancredo and Bachmann? They got nowhere!

I do disagree w/ one thing Debbie said. I don’t think Romney will be worse than Bush. Yeah, he does flip and flop, but the flips have included some aggressive anti-Islamic positions as well in the past. Something that can never be said to be true about Bush.

Yeah, he’s a lackluster candidate (any conservative who lost to McCain defintitely is), but what chances does anyone from our side have in getting elected? Unless it’s a megastar from Hollywood who accidentally happens to share our views and values?

Infidel on June 14, 2012 at 4:53 am

    Infidel, I think that a Republican candidate who was good on Islam and on illegals and modestly economically conservative would be electable. Strong majorities in both parties in the electorate are against the status quo regarding immigration.

    skzion on June 15, 2012 at 7:52 pm

On the VP choice, I know it’s hoping for too much, but I do hope Mitt picks Tancredo, given the latter’s endorsement of him in 2008 after Tancredo dropped out of the race.

Infidel on June 14, 2012 at 5:03 am

I think Romney is clueless and he is mentally incapable of understanding the Muslim threat to America by immigration and infiltration of U.S.Government agencies by the Muslim Brotherhood organizations like C.A.I.R and I.S.N.A. Here is what he said in an interview with USANews.
“I didn’t refer to Islam at all, or to any other religion for that matter. I spoke about three major threats America faces on a long term basis. Jihadism is one of them, and that is not Islam. If you want my views on Islam, it’s quite straightforward. Islam is one of the world’s great religions and the great majority of people in Islam want peace for themselves and peace with their maker. They want to raise families and have a bright future.
There is, however, a movement in the world known as jihadism. They call themselves jihadists and I use the same term. And this jihadist movement is intent on causing the collapse of moderate Muslim states and the assassination of moderate Muslim leaders. It is also intent on causing collapse of other nations in the world. It’s by no means a branch of Islam. It is instead an entirely different entity. In no way do I suggest it is a part of Islam”.
Romney sees no connection whatsoever between Islam and the jihadists?

    skzion on June 14, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Not just the 20% who say they’ll now vote against Obama, but the millions of Blacks, youth, Hispanics and Whites who voted for “hope and change” last time and got the biggest crook and fraud artist liar Obama who ever was elected President. They will either vote against him or NOT even vote this time.

You can stick a fork in Obama’s belly, he’s done for dinner!

bob on June 14, 2012 at 10:33 am

One can only hope that my fellow black North Carolinians will help tip the state back into the red column. I don’t think that will be the case however. Blacks despite what liberals have done to us since FDR will still give Odumbo over 90% of their vote. Being stuck with and uninspiring candidate in Mitt Romney doesn’t give me alot of hope either. He will need to have a strong VP choice to make conservatives like me warm up to him because at this point that aint happening. The election is a long way off but one thing is for certain. I will never vote for Obama. This do nothing hack has overseen more people(including nitwit liberal blacks) being out of work and on welfare than any of his predecessors combined. He is still blaming Bush for his crapola record that he can’t run on. At least ole Mittens isn’t taking a page out of McCain’s looser playbook and is taking it to the big crybaby. I’m sure that Romney’s eventual nomination makes fools like Karl Rove, Orin Hatch, David Brooks and Ann Coulter(big disapointment) happy but it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Ken b on June 14, 2012 at 10:45 am

Wow. I actually agree with Worry01. Yes, the Black folks who vote will still vote overwhelmingly for Pres. Obama, so 20% voting for Gov. Romney in North Carolina does seem a little extreme. But the Black folks who will sit this one out in large numbers are the ones the Obama campaign is having nightmares about. Most of the Black folks who are dissatisfied with Pres. Obama won’t vote for Gov. Romney…they just won’t vote.

D. O'Nay on June 14, 2012 at 11:54 am

    And then there’s blacks like me who will vote for Romney to get that misrepresentation of black americans out of office.

    Squirrel3D on June 14, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Oh no. not o-neigh.

skzion on June 14, 2012 at 12:16 pm

I’m not a big fan of Romney because he cannot or does not articulate conservative principles. I’m not sure the author of this article can either. However, Romney is not a Jew-hating Marxist stooge. He will visit Israel (he said he would which until he proves otherwise, I will take his word), he does understand the Islamic threat, and he will take steps to improve the economy. But he can’t do this by himself. Congress has to have conservatives installed and an overwhelming majority. Otherwise, its just 4 more years of waste. However, the main reason to vote for Romney, is to remove Obama from appointing any more Supreme Court justices. Romney would not nominate leftwing nutjubs like the two losers Obama put there. Imagine 4 more years of Obama, 3 new justices on the court. That would affect our lives for the next 30 years most likely. Think about that when you vote.

FrenchKiss on June 14, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Frenchkiss

    Yes my friend I couldn’t agree with you more. Could you imagine 4 more years of the Obamanation. Him being able to put more doofusses like Sotomayer and Kagen on the high court is enough to make sure that he goes down in flames. So I will go vote for Romney because Obama needs to go ASAP.

    Ken b on June 14, 2012 at 2:18 pm

Sorry for delay in response to your answer to my email, I don’t usually use msn email. I did enter my posting on WOT stating you were under mob attack and didn’t deserve this for stating your point of view on YOUR website. Also, I entered my positive rating
You might consider installing WOT to monitor it and it is useful for determining ratings in general. My son is a computer Engr. who specializes in firewalls and he installed it for me.
Good luck, it must be very frustrating but you have many friends posting your POV.

Rochelle on June 14, 2012 at 2:52 pm

While I agree that Romney and Obama are not that much different in the policy department, At least Romney isn’t an illegal alien, identity thief, radical muslim fraud!

Tommy Thomas on June 14, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Ah DS, once again you’ve applied your usual flawless logic. Obama vs Romney, sets up as a 2 “lefty” runoff. Unfortunately, they’re an apogee away from the real world when it comes to jobs- opting instead, to seek their own self-interests.

Furthermore, I know Speaker of the House John Boehner hasn’t seen an free trade-agreement that he didn’t like ie…(NATFA, CAFTA, and GATT), to name a few. He “speaketh with a forked tongue,” they all do!

Patrick on June 14, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Like everyone else, they should be voting based on policy, not on color.

Paul on June 14, 2012 at 5:43 pm

Deb:

I agree 100%. I see Romney continuing O’Bama’s policies with differences that are so small, they will merely be cosmetic. He might overturn “O’Bama-care”, but he’ll introduce a bill that will be so similar it won’t matter.

Romney is another GOP believer in “global warming” and will continue Bush’s and O’Bama’s draconian EPA policies that will kill the electric car, drive up electricity prices which will then drive up the cost of everything… right down to the frozen peas in your supermarket.

Romney will not confront Saudi-Arabia and OPEC. He will not challenge the violation of anti-trust laws whereby Saudi-owned companies (like Saudi-ARAMCO) do business illegally in the United States in open violation of anti-trust laws.

Mitt Romney will not appoint a flaming Zionist as Sec. of State or Defense. It just ain’t gonna happen. The weapons sales will continue to Arab OPEC countries; no Saudi request for American weapons systems has EVER been denied.

The real fact of the matter is that O’Bama is carrying on the Bush Administration’s policies. I realize O’Bama-care and the stimulus package are not Bush-like policies, but everything else is pretty much more-of-the-same. That is why more than a few Blacks have grown impatient with O’Bama.

Blacks were expecting hope and change. Now they see that there’s no change and many have lost hope. To make matters worse for the President, there are Black race-merchants for whom he could never “be black enough”. I shall not mention names, but I’m sure you can guess who they are.

And surprisingly, though you rarely hear this discussed in the news, Romney’s Mormon faith has hurt the President. Every time someone brings it up against Romney, the words Jeremiah Wright are thrown back in the accusers’ faces. Those who worry about Romney’s faith are forced to examine the O’Bama family church. A brief debate on that subject between partisan liberals and conservatives tends to leave both camps staring at each other speechless.

I don’t know how many die-hard liberals told me openly that they were rooting for Romney in the primaries. Their reason: “If O’Bama loses, but Romney gets in, the ‘damage’ will be minimal.” This is where the rubber meets the road; liberals agreeing openly with you, for all the wrong reasons.

Steve, you should read Gregg Jackson’s blog if you think Flip Floppney is a Conservative. Or you like establishment types. That won’t help us with the Islamic menace.

Or you’re a Liberal.

Hi Skunky,
Nothing will help us with the Islamic mess in this country because no one running for office is willing to admit that we are not just dealing with a particular “antiquated” culture but an inbred religion that is antithetical to the true God of the bible (Allah is a false god “moon-god” rooted in paganism), humanity, freedom and progress. Islam is pure unadulterated evil born in the very pit of hell and descended upon this world about 600 years after Christ. Islam was born in hate, lives in hate and will die in hate. American politics does not have the fortitude nor the understanding to deal with it. So everyone on both sides, step around it like the poisonous snake in the room, giving it a wide berth but not cutting its head off. Bush is as culpable as Obama as is every other politician out there.
I vote based on reality, not on what I wish could be. My 2 options in November are either the “Creep in Cheif” who is in office now, or Mitt Romney, whom, you would have no problem with if you had to work side by side with him in an office. Sorry, there is no 3rd option. Mr. Super Conservative who can turn this country back to what the founders intended is not running. So I have to vote what is. You can scream and yell all you want about Romney, but it’s him or the Turd. All of you who say you will hold your nose as you vote for him, thank you! Hold that nose and pull the lever for Romney. I’d rather have Romney at his worst than Obummer at his best.

Steve, I think we agree on the bottom line. I am voting for Romney BUT only because Obama-Putin MUST go.

He has my vote but NOTHING ELSE! DS is correct in summarizing the bottom line. I only responded to your post because you seemed enthusiastic about Romney. I am not. I know what we will get. He was my Governor for 4 years. Excited I am NOT!

IF you really think Romney is a Conservative, you must read what Gregg Jackson has to say. It’s hard to disagree with his assessment if one is being honest. Sorry, I don’t get enthusiastic for Liberal Republicans.
