The Undeniable Truth on Romney every single Republican has to admit

I'm a diehard libertarian - pro drug legalization, prostitution, gambling, Abolish the IRS, the works. But I am a Republican first and foremost. And as such, my very first priority for 2012 is to Win! I want nothing more than to beat Obama, keep a strong majority in the House, and rid the Senate of the slight Dem majority.

Every single Republican has to admit to themselves, that Mitt Romney gives us our best shot.

I say this as a Donald Trump or Michele Bachmann or Herman Cain or Gary Johnson supporter. (I don't think my gal Sarah is going to run.)

This today from The Daily Caller:
We all know the pluses (former governor, deep pockets, previously sought GOP nomination in 2008) and minuses (Romneycare and perceptions of Mormon faith) that will be in play during Romney’s GOP primary run. But there is one item that usually escapes the casual political handicapper: Romney’s appeal among independents. This group, which swung to Obama in 2008 and then to the GOP’s congressional candidates in 2010, will be the single most important voting block for either party in 2012. In two battleground states that had been trending blue — Michigan and New Hampshire — Romney has, at times, led President Obama in a hypothetical general election match-up largely because of his appeal among these voters.

Several polls show that Romney is also leading Obama in Florida, a state that is essentially a political microcosm of all the battleground states and a state that the eventual GOP nominee cannot lose if Republicans have any hope of winning the White House in 2012.
We need to Win some in the Northeast!

I live in Texas, but I spend a great deal of time every year working for political initiatives and candidates up in New England, (mainly Maine.) I can tell you from my time spent in the Region, Mitt Romney is very popular in the far Northeast. Bottom line: If Romney is the nominee we win New Hampshire, and probably Maine too. Just as importantly, Romney will do well in his home state of Massachusetts, and may carry some downticket GOPers to the finish line in that very tough for Republicans State.

Then there's Pennsylvania. A poll released yesterday by Quinnipiac showed a "generic" Republican tied with Obama in this formerly trending Blue State. Simply put, we win Pennsylvania, we win the Election. And does anyone doubt that Mitt Romney offers our best hope for winning PA?

Like The Daily Caller writers say, with Romney Michigan could go Red. That would be a Sweeeeeet! pick up.

PA and MI in the GOP column? And Florida and New Hampshire for sure. No way, Obama could overcome that.

Let's have a vigorous primary season with fierce ideological debates. In the end, I'm suspecting, we'll all be rallying around our nominee Mitt Romney. And I'll be one of his most enthusiastic block walkers.

Final note; There damned sure better not be any sourpusses like Ron Paul types, who walk out and say "We cannot support Romney." That happens and the entire Republican Party, particularly the activist core, ought to rain Hellfire down upon them.

  1. He doesn't give us the best chance to win as it hasn't
    t been proven as such. It wasn't in 2008 and it won't be this time around either.

  2. Not only do things change and Romney's chances are not clear, but if he does win do we get a second coming of Obama? Romneycare and Obamacare are twins and possibly his other ideas are not far from Obama's.
