I keep hearing people bad mouthing Romney. Let's face it, unless Romney has a total collapse, he is going to be the Republican candidate. People need to stop giving the left ammunition and need to gather behind Mitt. He is a very smart business leader and he knows how to run things successfully. If we want more jobs and our businesses to become better, he is the man. He is not a D.C. guy like the rest of the candidates, he comes from the business world, and he has seen a lot of the political world. I do not want one of us commoners. I am not smart enough do get things done, and don't know what are the right things that need to be done. I want an extra special guys who knows how to get things done. Romney, Trump, etc, they can get thing done for us and get us back to work and making money. The time has come to unite! We need someone speical like Romney in the WH, just as bac as we need Obama out. Lets energize our base and get them out to vote.

Sorry but that is NOT going to happen. At least not with me ( and a whole lot of people I know LOL). Nothing personal against Romney...I am sure he is a smart, nice guy...but I have some major issues with some of his stance on some issues. Just because someone has an (R) next to their name does not mean that person gets my vote. If Romney gets the nomination I am going third party. If that means Obama gets re-elected....well not my fault. If the party wanted my vote then they should have offered up a candidate with a platform I could support.

Come on, think on it. Third party is not going to resolve anything. A vote for 3rd party is a 1/2 vote for Obama. Obama has to go, even if you do not like Romney. You have to be bigger than this. Just because the guy I like isn't the nominee, I ain't going to vote. If you wanted someone else, you should have help more to get the other. Now that that has not happened, be big enough to support the next best. I am not letting you off that easy. It will be part of your fault.

and it's all about YOU right? sorry, that was a bit mean. But you really need to consider how that attitude will effect the next four years. You were responding at a discussion on Nancy Pelosi suggesting the change or get rid of the first amendment, right? DO YOU REALLY believe our country will survive another four years of this? I can relate to not agreeing with everything a candidate says or stands for, but at least he stands for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and at least he believes in capitalism and private property. Go ahead, vote third party, its your right. But don't cry when you have to live in an America you don't recognize anymore.

It IS my vote...so yeah...it IS all about me. I don't expect you to like my decision or agree with it. But it is my vote and I get to use it as I see fit. Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. I don't expect to 100% agree with a candidate but I have some serious issues with Romney. Ever see his list of major contributors? Look at it..then look at Obama's. THey are both bought and paid for by the same corporations. I would LOVE to have a president that believes in Capitalism. Too bad this country thinks Corporatism is Capitalism. Want our ecomony back? Try actually practicing Captialism. Also...BUY AMERICAN. So why should I vote for candidate that I don't believe will turn this country around. Bush was a disaster (yep I actually said that.. and mean it). Obama has been Bush's third term. I don't see Romney being any different. Just because you change the conductor does not mean you change the direction of the train. As for voting third party...the two party system is a HUGE problem in this country. I can easily vote Libertarian...I am very libertarian leaning. I really like Ron Paul and Gary Johnson. Now there are two people that could get this country back on it's feet. So I am voting for who I think can actually put this country back together...not the lesser of two evils.

Are you kidding me? What ever for??? Vote out Obama and vote someone in just like him? Nuthin doin. If my candidate doesn't get the nomination, I will be probably be voting for the presumptive Libertarian party candidate, Gary Johnson. I have some deep and profound ideological differences with Romney, many of the same issue I have with Obama. To me there would be no difference.

Is there many of you who are going to make Gary Johnson the president? If not, then count on your vote being one of many that will ensure Obama is in for another four years, say good bye to the Bill of Rights.

xfahctor, A vote for anybody but Romney, is a 1/2 vote for Obama. Think on this. Obama has to go. I am sorry you don't like Romney, but I feel he will be a lot better than you think. You will be wasting you vote if you vote for a third party. Don't waste it. Please don't do this! We can't afford to have people like you do this. Think about it, please. Obama is a socialist, Romney is much, much farther to the right than Obama. I understand were you are coming from, but Romney is not that bad.

I certainly agree. We must have a different person as president. Can any republican be worse than our present one?? I would have Sarah Palen Newt, (have you read their books?). OMG = Obama Must Go. I have seen WWII and all since . Our country really needs a big change.

I regretfully agree. He definitely wasn't my first choice, but I think he will do much better as president than what we have now. If we don't unite behind him and work to elect him, we may not have another chance at a free election. As it is, we will be fighting a lot of voter fraud. That's almost a given with Holder suing states that want to see voter ID. What's just as important, though, as uniting behind Romney, is to elect a Congress that will support a smaller government, real health care reform, and real tax reform. And we need to keep an eye on our county and city officials who are busily implementing U.N. Agenda 21 and hoping we won't notice until it's too late.
