This is pretty interesting: I detect the underpinnings of an actual discussion on TH, which is most unusual. Shoudl one vote practically or conscientiously? For those who would vote practically, may I suggest that voting for Romney may embolden the middle of the roaders. The Republicans will assume they can continue to run RINO's like Romney without fear of losing your vote. This will be especially true if ROmney gets close but still doesn't win.

Voting for Romney may embolden the middle of the roaders? Well, perhaps, but I see little indication that NOT voting for Romney will teach them any lesson. The sequence of Bush 1, Dole, Bush 2, McCain, and now Romney suggest that these people are incorrible and that they prefer to lose with a fellow RINO than win with someone more like Reagan. Rather than leave the RINOs in place and try to teach them a lesson, we have to do what it takes to root them out and replace them with non-RINO's. That will require time, effort, and money.

Romney make look like a bit of a rhino, but he is not beholden to it. He is persuadable and can be worked with. The solution is to give him a better congress to work him.

Exactly my feeling on Romney.
That he has been politically malleable hasn't been a problem for me.
Hearing him campaign and debate has caused me to believe he operates on some basic principles I respect, and that as long as he can be certain that individual policies pass those general priciples ("is this federal government program worth borrowing money from China to fund?") then he is comfortable supporting that policy.
I see him as a populist on policy, so he'll follow the house which most represents the people en masse once he's president. I'm comfortable with that.

That is one of the most important things that has to be done this election. Republicans HAVE to take Congress back. ObamaCare is going to destroy the economy and pending job layoffs and business moves overseas is looming on the horizon. ObamaCare MUST be repealed. Then Congress must pass a law that states that Executive Branch agencies can make recommendations for regulations and enforce laws and regulations passed by Congress, but they cannot MAKE regulations. The EPA, NHTSA, IRS ect must be banned from creating and enforcing regulations.
Mitt Romney tells people he won't fire federal workers or cut education spending. He says he'll spend more on the military. He sounds like a big-government guy. Or is he just pandering for votes?

Ann Coulter came on my TV show to defend Romney.

"What you call pandering is called getting elected," Coulter said.

Romney says he'll repeal Obamacare. Great! But he wants to keep popular parts: coverage for pre-existing conditions and keeping grown kids on their parents' policies until age 26. Those mandates are popular. But that's not insurance. That's welfare.

"If we do not repeal Obamacare in the next...
