Mitt Romney then becomes the 47th President of the United States (and 4th in two months) and appoints Paul Ryan as V.P.
As much as I would have loved to have seen that happen, even if it did, we would not be able to get Obamacare repealed. We needed to also take the Senate, and we didn't do that.

Yup! Republicans hate that Americans can vote ( a pointless political charade) and continue to encourage the Supreme Court to appoint politicans.


Seems very anti-American to me....

Yep - liberals hate that Americans can vote and are still upset that they elected a Republican in 2000 and re-elected him in 2004.

Sounds very anti-American to me.

How many brain cells did you kill coming up with this ridiculous scenario? lol...

What else happens in your dream? Manna falls from the sky and the Easter Bunny comes to distribute copies of Breitbart publications to all of the boys and girls?

That is an absolutely false assertion that you have made about conservatives - if indeed that is to whom you were referring with your "right-winger" perjorative.

Would you please clarify exactly whom you mean when you say "right-winger" - and then defend your statement?

Nope - you aren't getting away with this strawman. I will have an answer - and if I don't get one, I will demand one until you adequately explain yourself.
