Is It All About The Frogskins, Thad?

Egad, Thad. First by T-Paw, now you: had. I don’t know the price on that endorsement, but I hope it was good.

So, the Ruling Class is promoting Romney as their RINO tool of choice. We can rename ObamaCare, call it RomneyCare, and that will make it all more gooder. Or is it just that it is known that Romney will give good concession speech?

Commitment to the status blow is not what is needed to bring recovery, Thad. I think you know it, and that’s why this is all so sad.

    I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired of these guys we put a little faith in going all Luther on us.

    I want to see Obama go, but Romney better make it clear his goals on repealing Obamacare.  Leaving it to the states to conduct these mad social experiments, fine.  Say that then.  But Obamacare has to be abolished.  Gone.  Finished.  And while they are at it, GWB-Rove’s prescription drug entitlement needs to get thrown out too.  And then reforming SS to make it pencil (it can be done) and radically redoing Medicare. 

    Because those are the minimums to fix the economy and the budget.

    So T-Paw, Thad, is Mitt on board for that?  Or did he have you on agreeing to pick up your debt?  There are girls who will do things for guys for favors like that. 

    Just sayin.

    Romney can say the word repeal until he’s “blue” in the face as well as his RINO heart. I won’t trust him, I won’t vote for him. Obviously the American people haven’t gotten it “good and hard” enough yet.

    I have it on good authority that Mitt has promised Thad the job of head librarian at the Library of Congress when Mitt takes office.

    I am troubled by Perry’s decline.

    But I won’t vote for a ticket with Romney on it under any circumstances.

    And there are many millions of people just like me.

    The GOP needs me more than I need it.

    That is true.  The GOP is nothing.  Really.  Who cares about it. 

    I care about this country.  Obama is a disaster.  Mitt is definitely a very flawed candidate.  I would encourage you to support other candidates, but…and this is a big but… if Mitt ends up being the nominee and the choice is Mitt or Obama, you should vote for Mitt.  Because while I am sure Mitt would disappoint me, Obama in office for another four years would be devestating. 

    I would vote for any of the candidates (other than Huntsman because if he is the nominee then all is lost and I will be like Sarah Connor— heading out to the desert to wait out the shit storm). 

    Yeah there are many millions who won’t vote for Romney under any circumstances.  They are leftists and Democrats.

    Wah, wah, wah.

    Never understood the warm and fuzzies over McCotter.  Yeah, he’s sharp on the Red Eye, but he’s also a union stooge, without reservation.  He’s for “card check” – replacing the secret ballot in plant elections to one where the union thugs can come out to your house with their baseball bats and “ask” you to sign right there.  “Nice family ya got here, Mac, be a shame if sumtin were ta happen to ’em.”

    Sorry, he will never be the Republican nominee for dogcatcher, much less Prez.  Forget it.

    For all the incessant whining about the “Republican Establishment” and the “Ruling Class,” the primaries are fully democratic.  If you don’t like the nominee, you don’t like the party. 

    Or maybe if everyone but a few agrees on a nominee, it’s because the few are fringe nutters.  Just a thought.

    But those who are unwilling to support our duly elected nominee, please LEAVE the party now.  DO NOT bastardize our nominating process if you don’t intend to support the winner.  Form your own little third party with your half a dozen fellow nuts, and stay out of the way as we go about the serious business of beating Obama.

    Today, effective
    immediately, I have withdrawn my candidacy to become the Republican Party’s nominee for the Office of President of the United States of
    America. Your generous, inspiring support of my campaign
    made it possible to take our message of restructuring government,
    the big bailout banks and peace through strength directly to the
    American people at a grassroots level. On Main Street, in Iowa, New
    Hampshire and all
    across our great Nation, people understand this message is the way to
    transcend our challenges, revitalize our economy, defend our freedom and
    bequeath our exceptional nation to our children. The Democrats and their
    lobbyist, Barack Obama, disagree. They’ve grown big government’s
    spending, taxes, red tape, deficits and debt and prolonged this
    recession. Yet in their irresponsibility, the Democrats remain united in
    their party
    unity behind Barack Obama. It is time for us to do the same. We
    cannot unite America if we divide the movement of Principled
    The time has come for the Tea Party and the Republican Party to come
    together to serve and save this great nation. Thus, upon having
    withdrawn my
    candidacy, I have endorsed Governor Mitt Romney to become our Republican Party’s nominee. We must unite behind the candidate best capable
    of defeating Barack Obama on November 6, 2012—Mitt Romney is that candidate. The
    actions of the Administration and the
    Democratic Senate show what America knows: we are being neither led nor
    governed. Our struggle continues. The American people deserve leadership
    Washington that understands America’s exceptionalism is not our burden
    but our birthright; and that America’s ultimate strength and
    salvation remains the unfathomable grace of God and virtuous genius of
    her free people. This is why I have decided to seek re-election to continue
    to serve as your United States Representative for Michigan’s new 11th Congressional District; and, I am committed to promoting
    and implementing a platform of principled conservatism. Truly,
    Michigan and America’s best days are ahead of us because of you.
    Together we will transcend our challenges; revitalize our economy;
    defend our freedom; and bequeath our exceptional nation to our children.
    If I am
    again entrusted to be your servant, I would continue to be honored to
    work for you.Thaddeus McCotter

    I’m rather sick of pundits telling me who is and who isn’t electable, fourteen months out from the election.  You know who else wasn’t electable at this point in the 2007-’08 election cycle?

    Barack Obama.

    Look how things worked out for him.

    Just sayin’…
