Thumbs down Anti-Romney Republicans want to help Obama win re-election

Conservatives pushing for unity behind single GOP candidate | 2012 Presidential Campaign ...

The right wing wants "unity," meaning all right-wingers backing one candidate (probably Santorum), to ensure that Romney doesn't get the GOP nomination.

Any candidate with Dobson ties has no chance whatsoever. When are you non-religious (or don't let religion into your politics) conservatives going to put him in the foreground?

With this much hate being directed at Willard, you might get a few Democrats and left-leaning onto the Romney band-wagon actually.

They've got to be thinking it: Anyone that the psychotic ultra-conservative wing of the GOP hates this is almost sure to be a good candidate.

Is this really that surprising? Flip-flop Romney is pro-choice, pro-gun control, is against Reagan, supported Obama's stimulus, supports ObamaCare as a national healthcare program, and calls himself "a progressive".

The only difference between Flip-Flop Romney and Obama is that the Romneytard lies about his views, whereas Obama is a REAL progressive.

I'm not sure why the media and pundits think Romney has the best shot at beating Obama. To me, Romney seems like a weak candidate who is not trusted by his party's base. That's a recipe for defeat.

You have seen the rest of the Republican field, right?

They do have Jon Huntsman sitting there on the bench (in essence). Huntsman could be a very real threat, but he's much too sane for them. So they won't even consider nominating him.

Excluding Huntsman and Paul, can you see anyone there who would actually do better than Willard against Barack Obama?

Santorum or Perry would be harder for Obama to beat. Romney is so wooden and strange when interacting with people, it's kind of creepy.

Yes, an honest politician for a change, Ron Paul. He would run circles around Obama, who will attempt to justify all his policies that work against the security and prosperity of this nation. Paul is the complete opposite of Obama, that would be a historical debate, which I would gladly pay to witness. Maybe toss Newt in there too. I don't think Newt is the globalist that Romney is. Santorum is just a religious control freak.
