Grassfire Nation outraged because a leopard hasn't changed his spots

Shock, horror, outrage — Mitt Romney has betrayed the conservative cause, flip-flopped on his pledge to repeal ObamaCare, and isn't who he recently claimed to be!

Grassfire Nation wants Romney to "clarify his position." Did they happen to notice his record as Governor ... or the statements he made while running for the United States Senate? He repudiated Ronald Reagan, proclaimed himself pro-abortion, imposed the prototype for ObamaCare, and did more than any single American to bring same-sex "marriage" to the United States. His campaign manager even told you to expect this; remember "Etch-A-Sketch"?

Well, dear friends at Grassfire Nation, we're not the least bit disappointed in Mitt Romney. He is showing himself to be exactly who we know him to be. The outrage is that you, who claim to be conservative Republicans, did nothing from the time Rick Santorum suspended his campaign to resist the tragedy that is the nomination of this phony, fraud and charlatan. You compromised principle, you averted your eyes, you convinced yourselves that a leopard can change his spots. Now you're stuck with him. Good luck.

Many of us who have been fooled by liberal, Establishment Republicans in the past will not be suckered again. We're supporting the Constitution Party candidate, Virgil Goode. You have a choice — go down with the ship or fight for your purported principles with those who put principle above the acquisition of power. No, we don't stand with you or your very flawed candidate. You made a bargain with the devil. We want no part of it.
    Grassfire Nation Update

    Dear Daniel,

    Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney no doubt induced a strong sense of uneasiness among many conservatives on Sunday. During an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," he told host David Gregory that he would preserve the best parts of ObamaCare!

    Refusing to call it ObamaCare or even The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Romney said his plan wasn't "getting rid of all of healthcare reform ... there are a number of things I like in healthcare reform."

    Did Romney "bite" the liberal-media bait dangled by Gregory and actually flip-flop on ObamaCare?

    Following the Supreme Court ruling in favor of ObamaCare, back in June, Romney said, "What the Court didn't do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States. And that is, I will act to repeal ObamaCare."

    At no time prior to yesterday has the Republican candidate mentioned preserving the best parts of an unconstitutional healthcare overhaul that will put the U.S. in the fast lane to bankruptcy!

    Daniel, please go here now to see this surpising one-minute "Meet the Press" segment. Then join conservative Americans from across the nation who are using Grassfire's just-launched pledge to remind Mitt Romney that he must REPEAL AND FULLY DEFUND ObamaCare!
