Voter: I don’t like Romney, but I’ll crawl over broken glass to vote against Obama

Last week, I noticed this blog comment: “Romney was not my first, second, or third choice, but I will crawl over ground glass to vote for him.”

A lot of Republicans — and, judging from polls, a lot of independents — feel this way. If there are enough of them, Romney will win, and win big.

Are there? Well, there are some signs. I’ve written here before that politics is all about showing up. And in recent months, people on the Right have been doing a lot of showing up. They’ve showed up at Romney-Ryan events in unprecedented numbers. They made Dinesh D’Souza’s “2016: Obama’s America” a huge hit despite a virtual blackout from traditional media. They stood in line for hours at Chick-fil-A restaurants to buy chicken sandwiches in response to politicians’ bullying. They packed houses at the “Hating Breitbart” premiere.

Will they now pack the voting booths and vote for Romney, and against Obama, in similarly unprecedented numbers? If they do, Romney will win in a landslide.

Read more: http://washingtonexaminer.com/sunday-reflection-the-ground-gl... Four years ago, Republicans were dispirited, and yet somehow also complacent. After eight years of GOP rule, many had forgotten what the Democratic Party was all about. Some actually believed Obama's pretense to be a nonideological moderate. And many were unenthusiastic about the lackluster candidacy of establishment Republican John McCain.

So they didn't show up. They didn't vote. They didn't donate. They didn't recruit friends and relatives and acquaintances to show up and vote. And it showed. For a lot of people, the thought is that four years of Obama might be damaging but survivable, while eight years of Obama might -- in the president's own words -- "fundamentally transform America" in a way that they don't like.

Ultimately, the question is whether "a lot of people" will be enough people to overcome Obama's own showing-up mechanisms, which include unions' formidable get-out-the-vote operations and the still-extant remnants of organizations like ACORN.

There's no way to know the answer to that until next week. But if the answer is important to you, I have one suggestion: Show up.

    Finally this Delusional childish wishing is over. Many of you said if the President was re-elected you would move to another country. Keep your promise.
  • Rodney 2012/11/07 01:15:07
    I pray this analysis is correct. I do know McCan't wasn't much of a choice and I support a third party candidate in '08 as a protest. Something I regret in a way.

    Then vote Libertarian, which is the only way of voting against Force, Socialism, and Debt.

    It's also voting against the Dem-Rep monopoly which brought us communism in 2008.

    Not that you'll "win" anything, but you'll stand for principle and real Liberty. This is probably your last chance to do so.

    Thank you for at least realizing, like me, Obama is a false bill of goods, filled with deception and pitting us against each other.

    Look for Obama to pull an old play from the democratic book of campaigning. Around 3:00 pm CST(4:00 EST) they will start putting out exit poll numbers claiming an Obama landslide. This is intended to discourage republicans who will wait to vote after work this afternoon from voting by making it appear pointless. The problem with this is that the Obama supporters are sheep that believe everything the media tells them and it could backfire and cause their own base to become over confident and not vote. Don't believe any reports you hear about who will win until after all polls are closed.

    I'd liked to have voted for the best candidate, unfortunately they're never running. I voted Romney because I know what Obama is doing to us and that it will escalate if he's re-elected.
  • sickofpolitics 2012/11/06 14:33:10
    Amen, so would I!!! Obama and his regime have got to go!!!
