Do conservatives even care for the fence sitters.

         After Santorum won both Alabama and Mississippi I feel that the conservative movement could care less about the fence sitters in this country, I have nothing against conservatism by any means. But I feel that the tea party has turned presidential races into purity contests. Moves like this make fence sitting republican's change over too the Democratic party. Democrat's are more inclusive which is a bad thing for The GOP.

        Ask a Rino or who is thought as rino were they lean politically they will tell you that they lean conservative. The problem is that Democrat's use attack's on rino's as a rallying cry. Like my site motto's say's rino's are conservative too.

         The truth of the matter is also that Santorum and Gingrich are tea party just a much as Mitt Romney. They are not really tea party. Herman cain was more Tea Party. The democrats found a way to eliminate him. The GOP needs to be inclusive. We don't need a conservative we need a leader. I want Mitt.

  1. Mitt Romney, historically, is center right at best. I may even be too kind by saying that much about him. He may try to explain away his past dealing (which is hard to do for many candidates) by saying he was doing the will of the people of the state and that is not really how he feels, but even Mitt is running to the right which makes me think he is either left of center or just barely right of center, depending on how you look at it.

    When we get to the general election, the same problem Mitt had tonight he will have then,. and that is getting out the Conservative vote. The Christian Conservatives run away from the man, and it is hard to say if it is actually because of his religion or not but I am sure it has something to do with it. Look how many people sat at home. Romney was leading in a few polls in Mississippi in the days leading up to this evening, and he bottomed out because he could not get the people that Santorum and Gingrich could to come out and vote. If he has that problem in November and he loses the South, Obama gets another term.

    The Republican Party is split at this point. We have many individuals who are looking for someone who can beat Obama and in their minds that person is Mitt Romney because of the way he handles himself. He does handle himself much better than the other candidates, but I am not sure that Obama could not run circles around him in a debate. I would also add that I have yet to hear any of these candidates talk about this President's past, which leads me to believe that they may not go down that road. Remember, that (along with a few other things) was what lost McCain the election in 2008. He would not stand up and call Obama out for his Communist past. If these men won;t do it, they are already putting themselves at a disadvantage.

    As far as I am concerned I will vote for whoever the nominee is, but I will not go out and walk the streets for Romney in a primary. All of these men have their problems, but without someone who can carry the South you might as well throw in the towel. I am not sure Romney can do it on his own without bringing someone on the ticket from a Southern state. Santorum was also thought to be an outcast in the south and he pulled it off, so for the Romney campaign to try and downplay this is only for the media. In reality, tonight, they are talking about the problems that lie ahead for them.
