Still Thinking laments how fictional characters aren't on the ballot:
Greaaaaat. I want Jack Ryan, and what do I get? Governor Goodhair and the First Whiner. [facepalm]TomGuy blames too many conservatives in the primaries:
The 'conservatives' were shooting themselves in the foot. They ran too many candidates [shades of 2008] and kept the voting split, even when it was obvious certain ones were not going to win. And the 'conservative' candidates did themselves in -- they didn't need much assistance/attacks from the other candidates.Somehow, Freepers thought all the candidates were insufficiently pure at one point or another.
The GOPe ran one candidate. The GOPconservatives had 5 or 6. More is not always better. It wasn't in 2008. It wasn't in 2012.
What's that definition of insanity?
myself6 has some demands:
The GOP better wise the F up and dump this idiot at the convention.
IF enough of the delegates choose to abstain from the first round of voting, robomney will then be denied the number he needs and at that point those delegates are no longer required to vote for him in all subsequent votes.
IF the GOP actually nominates this SOCIALIST prick at the convention without doing ANYTHING to stop it. Im F’ing DONE with the GOP.
NO MONEY! NO SUPPORT! and they made an eternal enemy out of someone who USED to be an active supporter. Good job DH’s.
cripplecreek thinks the GOP has paid Freepers to shill for Romney:
I think the party uses manipulators here at FR too.CatDancer misses Palin:
They don’t post for years and suddenly show up and spend a couple of months steady stream posting attacks on other candidates only to disappear after their final post calling to unite.
For me it’s been 48 years. Goldwater, Reagan, Palin: the three I wanted among my votes. At least I (and the country) got one of them.Bigtigermike knows Palin will always be around
You better believe that Sarah is still relevant as today — more people seem to care for example, more about her endorsements and who it is than Romney and his endorsements when it’s he that is the nominee. The Mittwits had a meltdown the other day when Sarah refused to mention Romneys name as the GOP nominee — they went wild attack all Palin sites because it’s obvious that they still fear her and her influence even if people try to deny it.
