Word of advice for Romney Supporters

Stop attacking Conservatives and fellow Republicans.  I don’t want to see Obama win in the General election, however he probably will win if you guys don’t start building a case for your candidate and instead continue to pick fights with Social Conservatives.  You’re going to cost Romney the election (assuming he is the nominee).

No, the problem Romney faces is that his campaign and his supporters have run such a foul campaign.

Think of all the negative things said against other candidates by Romney and his supporters.  Did they give a damn how their words would be played back against Newt or Santorum if either of them were the nominee?

Did the editors of National Review worry in December about the Marvin the Martian cover being used against Newt?  Did the Romney campaign worry how its attempt to portray Newt as crazy would be used against Newt?

And how did Romney get to this point that he is the presumptive nominee?

By going massively negative on everyone else and using his campaign wealth to smother others.  His carpet bombing of Newt in Iowa and Florida is the only thing that kept Romney from the abyss.  I still see non-stop anti-Santorum ads on TV.

Romney has embittered a large segment of the people he will need to rally around him.  Profound and historic dislike of Obama is the only thing that will prevent a third party movement or a massive stay-at-home movement.

And it hasn’t stopped.  Romney supporters have shown themselves to be sore winners, and there’s nothing worse than sore winners heading into a general election.

Look I don’t like Romney, but I don’t want Obama to get 4 more years.  As far as I’m concerned the primary isn’t over (my state has yet to vote), however we have to be able to unite at the convention, and picking fights with Social Conservatives and trying to bully them, isn’t going to help Romney (assuming he is the nominee) win in November.  In fact, you’re hurting your own candidate’s chances if he becomes the nominee.

I quoted that article above to point out the issue is real, whether or not you choose to take note of it, is entirely up to you.
