    Does anyone actually like Mitt Romney?

    I'm curious, is there any 2A citizens (especially open carriers) who are ardent Romney supporters? Not in the sense of the lesser of two evils and all that. Actual, to the bone, people who like and have liked Romney in the past and present?
    I know the president won't be getting a lot of 2A support (probably none at all). but if there's someone out there who is a Romney guy (or gal).....Why?

    -I would appreciate good, valid, opinions and beliefs. I don't want to hear about how the president is the worst thing to ever happen to this country or how we the people need to get behind Romney to get Obama out and all that stuff I could listen to Fox news to hear.

    For those questioning my motive and political feelings......Sorry, I'm not going to explain my preferences or thought process to you.

    For those who will give me some insight, thanks.

    The right-wing of the Ruling Class, the repugnant GOP is dead (Bush-41), dead (Bush-43) and dead at the hands of Obummer's enabler McCain the Manchurian Candidate. The Country Class' candidate is so unprincipled as to switch between progressive Libertarian and Republican. No one represents conservatism. I will vote Constitution Party. The Tree of Liberty is parched and the cracked Liberty Bell silent is useless. Let the Liberty Bell ring the tocsin! If it cracks, then better me while my grip is firm and my blood hot than my daughter or any graduate of the Army of One.

    Ya Huntsman seems like a good guy, his father is pretty honorable

    I'm guessing from the lack of posts that there may not be anyone who actually likes Romney.

    wtf!? Huntsman was just the same as Romney.
    Don't believe any facts that I say! This is the internet and it is filled with lies and untruth. I invite you to look up for yourself the basic facts that my arguments might be based upon. This way we can have a discussion where logic and hints on where to find information are what is brought to the forum and people look up and verify facts for themselves.

    So....Still no Romney guys out there? Maybe they are all out there campaigning and can't post.

    In all seriousness, I would greatly appreciate hearing from any Romney believers.

    Not crazy about Romney but would be far better than 4 more years of treason unchecked. He has the best odds to beat Obama, and we got to get rid of him, he is dismantling the Constitution

    I can't think of one politician that I like. They have no honor.

    I like Romney; I liked McCain; they are indicative of the state of the Republican Party. Don't get me wrong, I have a harsh critique of President Obama.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Four more years of Obama might actually be better than eight years of Romney.

    Romney won't win anyway. Only Ron Paul can beat Obama. But Republicans would rather have big-government Romney the gun grabber as a nominee instead of Paul. And so Obama will win.

    Does anyone actually like Romney? I don't think so other than Goldman Sachs.

    You get the prize! Conceding that four more years of Obama would leave the Country better off. You are right: A Romney election means eight years (potentially) of Romney--wouldn't that be lovely.

    COULD leave the country better off. Not would. And only because four years of crap is better than eight years of crap.

    Still doesn't mean people should vote for either one.

    That is like saying that being kicked in the teeth is better than being kicked in the 'nads...

    Why not just choose to NOT BE KICKED?

    I heard a saying once... "Choose your Poison."

    Now, it may not have been been anything to do with politics, but I thought that saying was appropriate for this next election.

    No!
    I do not trust the man. He will say whatever he needs to, to get the vote. He is only in it for the money and power, not the people.

    Other than news reports, I don't know the man. Yeah, he was a RINO in MA, is too far to the left of Ronaldus Magnus, he is no loony-lib-sock-puppet like Obama and his minions and mind-numbed supporters.

    I'll vote for him, eight years of Romney is not a guarantee.

    Romney will not beat Obama; he can only replace him.

    I don't think anyone actually likes Romney; they've just heard the Left hand of the Devil is evil and all will be well if they replace the Left hand with the Right hand. Never mind that both hands belong to the same monster.

    I'm tickled by the implicit logic:

    Republicans nominated John McCain, of all people, in 2008. He lost (with less than a third of the Electoral College vote). After considering the previous results and engaging in some deep soul-searching, Republicans have now said, "Well, McCain didn't work, so let's improve our chances by nominating Mitt Romney this time."

    I stubbed my toe, last night, when I walked to the bathroom in the dark. That hurt, so tonight I'm going to stub my toe on purpose, and I'm sure that will work out better.

    It's amazing how much this has become engrained into people's heads. The OP stated specifically...

    "I don't want to hear about how the president is the worst thing to ever happen to this country or how we the people need to get behind Romney to get Obama out and all that stuff I could listen to Fox news to hear. "

    Romney is an awful choice for the presidency. Voting for Romney is a vote for Romney.

    I don't care for Romney. I really don't care for Obama. I know I can't in good reason vote for Obama, there is no reason to vote for him unless you really want to see America dismantled in just four years.

    But a vote for Romney may result in the same thing, but it will take a lot longer (how you like that I didn't use allot) from different causes and for different reasons.

    A vote for any other candidate is a vote for Obama, so I have no idea what to do. I will make my decision on the day I vote, if it looks like Ron Paul is on the ticket as independent and has the numbers he has my vote. At least Ron Paul is hooked to the hip to the same cronies Obama or Romney are.

    It may come down to what do you want? Do you want to see America destroyed quickly or slowly, I don't see us coming out of this deficit, nor the division between left and right without a real fight.

    Considering the alternative ( that being 4 more years of obama and him being free to do what he really wants free from the constraints of worrying about re-election) Yes I like Mitt Romney. Notice I said "like" not enamoured, raptured or in love. I voted for Santorum in the primary ( he won here in La.) and he was my second choice after Herman Cain. However the libs pulled out all the stops and got employees of the inJustice Dept to accuse him of acting inappropriately. So would you like the luke warm bologna sandwich on not quite stale bread, (Mitt) or the rotten to the core crap burger swarming with obamabot zombie flies?

    As far as Ron Paul goes, his ideas on the surface are good, however they rely on IMHO utopian ideals and rely on everyone else in the world agreeing to play by the same rules. People are tired of the presidency being a 4 year episode of American Idol already, we have a whiner who seems to want to be remembered as the first Kardashian president, people are certainly in no mood for anyone who they may percieve,right or wrong as unstable or unpredictable. IMO Paul simply cannot win, we need to all get up from the kid's table and realize we need a serious president who understands our economy and at least has some form of moral grounding. Obama has made us a laughing stock and Paul would do no better. So again, considering all alternatives realistically available, I "like" Mitt.

    Mathematically this is not true. A vote for Ron Paul results in no vote for Obama. It also results in no vote for Romney. Whereas an actual vote for Obama would result in no vote for Romney and one vote for Obama. So, if you want to mistakenly concede that this is a two man race(Obama v Romney), then you realize that a vote for Ron Paul is a "no" vote for either of the two "real" candidates. So... mathematically a vote for Ron Paul is only half a vote for Obama and half a vote for Romney. Casting a vote for Obama is the only way to vote for Obama.
