Superlies on Super Tuesday

The misogynist-in-chief tried to step on the Republican Super Tuesday primaries today. Again. The sexist Barack Obama is casting himself as a women’s rights activist and the Republicans are so stupid they are letting him get away with this lie. Instead of calling Obama out on his overt sexism, on Obama Dimocrat’s overt misogyny Republicans are talking about a fluke argument on contraceptives.

It’s not the only lie Republicans allow Obama to spout. There are the backstabbing lies and attempts to weaken Israel which we discussed earlier this week. WATCH YOUR BACK ISRAEL! There are the lies about gas prices and energy.

After advocating and agitating for higher energy prices, starting in 2007, Obama today audaciously advertised the fact that he was against high gas prices because otherwise it would hurt his reelection chances. It’s always about himself.

In their defense, Republicans are too busy shooting at themselves to worry about Obama. It’s as it should be. They first need to settle the argument amongst themselves as to who the leader of their party is to be and then they can begin to take care of business with Barack Obama.

With tonight’s results we will be on huge step forward in the Republican’s making up their minds on a nominee. Some might call today “Stupor Tuesday” but we’ll at least be exultant that this is getting closer to resolution. Let’s call it “Splendiferous Tuesday” whatever happens because it heralds one more step towards dumping Barack Obama back into the sludge pits of Lake Michigan.

We’ve, fairly we think, trashed all the Republican candidates for president. We’ve told the truth about Barack Obama too. We won’t go into all those arguments tonight and suffice to say “NObama”.

Tonight is just a night to watch the numbers (yup, OHIO) as they come in.

    Gingrich wins Georgia, a must win state for him. Romney in trouble (according to Fox News) in Virginia and Vermont. Ron Paul might win both those states.

  • moononpluto

    Romney will win Vermont per exit poll also Virginia, Georgia a win for Gingrich.

  • moononpluto

    CNN exit poll puts Romney 11 ahead on 38% in Vermont.

  • Mrs. Smith

    Romney in trouble (according to Fox News) in Virginia and Vermont.
    _____________

    So, for Romney no lock on the nomination?
    I hoped it was going to be over tonight.

  • moononpluto

    ABC News projects Newt Gingrich will win #gaprimary. Romney leading #vaprimary #vtprimary, per exit polls

  • moononpluto

    I think Fox is talking bull, exit polls i’ve seen puts both Vt and VA in romneys column. There’s only Paul and Romney on ballot in Va.

  • moononpluto

    Based on exit polling, CNN projects that Mitt Romney will finish second in Georgia – that’s a big deal

  • admin

    MoonOnPluto, Fox explained that they thought they could call Virginia the moment the polls closed but they can’t because Ron Paul is doing better than expected. Chris Wallace just said he was “astonished” they could not make the call in both states immediately. They say it shows Romney weakness.

  • admin

    “We report, you decide.” :)

  • moononpluto

    Virginia at present is 62/38 to Romney, if that holds, its gonna look stupid for networks.

  • moononpluto

    It seems tonight, i think the networks are doing their best to prolong the race because if they don’t they cant control the issue, for them its hurt Romney night, we’ve seen this playbook before in 2008 when they did not give anything ti Hillary, of its too close to call, then she won by 20.

  • admin

    While we wait for more horse race results:

  • moononpluto

    Donna Brazille, STFU and go away, you stupid stupid woman.

  • Shadowfax

    Admin

    We’ve, fairly we think, trashed all the Republican candidates for president.

    ——–

    Yup admin, you have been more than fair. ;lol:

  • pm317

    Admin, what the hell is going on on Fox.. Carl Cameron talking about Santorum and Newt’s acumen?!!

  • pm317

    oh, finally bastards.. they called VA for Romney..

  • Shadowfax

    Gotta get this right for admin…

    :lol:

  • moononpluto

    NBC calls Virginia for Romney, see told ya it was bullshit from Fox….agenda folks.

  • Shadowfax

    I hope Paul at least wins one state….. ;-) Just ’cause.

  • moononpluto

    and Virginia is winner takes all. All those go to Mitt.

  • moononpluto

    I dont get it, the agenda is obvious, the Virginia exit poll had it 59 to 41 and they couldnt call it….bullshit.

  • admin

    Add Vermont to Romney MoonOnPluto.

  • pm317

    I don’t understand it either. They are treating Romney like they did Hillary. Carl Cameron is really on another planet.

  • moononpluto

    Ahah, Exit poll has Romney winning Ohio.

    This race will be over, if Romney wins ohio.

  • moononpluto

    They are all fooling themselves, the GOP needs to close this nomination fight tonight if Romney wins big tonight. Santorum is looking finished about now.

  • moononpluto

    I also think Romney is probably gonna sneak Tenneseee as well.

  • moononpluto

    Exits poll. : Romney stomps Santorum 50-28 among voters who decided in “last few days.”

  • moononpluto

    Women giving the win to Romney in Ohio.

    self-id’d “working women” going big for Romney in OHIO primary by double digits. “all others” a virtual tie, per exit polls

  • moononpluto

    Romney to win BIG in Massachussetts.

  • moononpluto

    Romney wins Massachussetts.

    Tennesee and Oklahoma too close to call.

  • moononpluto

    lol Romney to win Mass with over 70%

  • moononpluto

    Looks like win in Tenn and Ok for Santorum but not by much.

  • moononpluto

    With Romneys huge win in Mass, he may take the entire state delegate slate of 38.

  • turndownobama

    one big billboard would be nice. HE LIED TO YOU LAST TIME, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK IT WILL BE ANY DIFFERENT THIS TIME. SHAME ON YOU.

    ===================

    FISA would be a good example. He promised to vote against it, then voted for it. Hillary voted against!

  • moononpluto

    Lol at present Obama is only winning the Ok dem primary with 49% of the vote.

  • admin

    TurnDownObama, not only did Obama promise to vote against FISA, Obama promised to lead a filibuster against FISA. As you write, Obama voted for FISA.

  • moononpluto

    Sarah just said on live tv, anything is possible for her at an open convention. Not closing a door.

  • moononpluto

    NBC News declares Rick Santorum as the projected winner in Tennessee…no surprise there, 2 big evangelical states gor for Santorum…Romney 2nd is pretty good.

  • admin

    Newt about to give his victory speech in Georgia.

  • pm317

    It is payback for Palin to bring down Romney for what she perceives his people did to her..

  • pm317

    first time listening to Callista — she can speak!

  • moononpluto

    The reality is, there is no possible way for either gingrich or Santorum to win the Nomination, the maths just doesnt add up for them.

  • moononpluto

    errrrr someone needs to tell Newt your campaign really is dead, you’ve won 2 primaries out of how many?

  • turndownobama

    Few events of history are so well documented and attested to as are these conquests, which commenced soon after the death of the Muslim prophet Muhammad (632) and tapered off circa 750.

    ===================

    But when someone brings up the Christian Crusades (or the witch hunts and the heresy inquisitions etc) — all much later than 750 — they’re told it’s old history and irrelevant.

  • pm317

    Newt is whining about Romney and mocking Santorum.. not good.

  • pm317

    Tortoise.. more like elephant

  • pm317

    Yeah right.. Obama will agree to his 7 Lincoln-Douglas style debates.. what a joke!

  • jbstonesfan

    Hard to watch as the net result is crippling any chance Romney has. Looks like Rick is catching in Ohio as well.

  • moononpluto

    Can we have 3 7hr debates instead of 7 3hr debates.

  • turndownobama

    Sarah just said on live tv, anything is possible for her at an open convention. Not closing a door.

    ===================

    Ooooh, what a dream! If both sides went to contests at their conventions, and Sarah and Hillary got it!

    That would beat Betty and Veronica…. ;-)

  • pm317

    Obots are having a field day watching Newt and Santorum..

  • moononpluto

    Romney will win Ohio.

  • Shadowfax

    Newts speech is really dulll.

  • jbstonesfan

    Palin has sacrificed the election for her own selfish purposes. Shame on her.

  • pm317

    Palin could say a nice thing about Romney (like she did about Newt and Santorum) and things will be very different. She knows that and she is playing with this election.

  • jbstonesfan

    Sanatorium now up in Ohio.

  • jbstonesfan

    Her husband is campaigning for Newt so we know where her loyalties are. She has
    done everything possible to prevent Romney from ending this.

  • Shadowfax

    Sweaters on next, oh gag….slow blinker.

  • moononpluto

    Santorum slightly leading in Ohio but all of the big urban areas which favour Romney have not even barely begun to report.

  • jbstonesfan

    Sanatorium lead increasing in Ohio 39% to 36%.

  • moononpluto

    Karl Rove on Fox saying Romney will win Ohio based on the numbers yet to come from the big urban areas.

  • admin

    JBStonesFan, we like “Sanatorium” – the quip not the candidate.

  • admin

    Shadowfax, imagine a telecast with Santorum and John Edwards. The slow blinker versus “blinky”.

  • jbstonesfan

    Lol….

  • turndownobama

    Sarah Palin open to ‘open convention’ – http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2012/03/07/exp-intv-palin-rush-comment.cnn?eref=rss_politics.

  • moononpluto

    I’m laughing because Obama is only getting 52% of the vote in Oklahoma.

  • moononpluto

    Don’t be confused about Ohio, all of Santorum’s areas are coming in now, virtually none of Romneys strong areas have even begun.

  • Shadowfax

    Sweaters needed to zip it after 10 minutes….now he is going off into the clouds…

  • jbstonesfan

    Romney cannot possibly give a worse speech than Newt & Rick’s, can he?

  • Shadowfax

    Shadowfax, imagine a telecast with Santorum and John Edwards. The slow blinker versus “blinky”.

    ….
    Oh that would be a snorefest admin.

  • Shadowfax

    Where is the fook to pull Mitts wife off the stage? She can work on Thank You notes later, she starts out every win with a downer…

    Pull her off!!!!!!!

  • Shadowfax

    Oops. Hook

  • Shadowfax

    Oops. Hook

  • Shadowfax

    Get her off!

  • jbstonesfan

    I hope you guys are right re Ohio as Ricky is leading by over 16k votes.

  • Shadowfax

    Did Mitt say he wants to get Obama out of the OUTHOUSE? ;-)

  • moononpluto

    There is barely anything of the big cities in Ohio in and romney expected to run up big margins there, the smaller rural areas all for santorum are nearly all in.

    Just watch a quick change when they do start reporting.

  • Shadowfax

    Well, I had to mute the sound on Mitts speech because the constant interruptions from chanting, “go Mitt , go” was driving me over the edge.

    Three bad speeches….ugh, 4 years with any of these glue horses will be torture.

  • moononpluto

    Ohio is gonna be very very close.

  • nomobama

    Interesting vote results tonight. The media playing up Romney wins, and mentioning Santorum’s wins almost as an afterthought. I know Santorum is viewed unkindly here, but I would rather see him win than Romney who would be my third choice. All the jabbering about his views on social issues is just nonsense. Feminists have perfected the ‘if he wins, then our rights will vanish overnight meme for way too long. His wife stated that he has always been surrounded by strong women (which indicates his respect for them) plus some of his best advisors have been women. It’s not just men that support him. In my opinion, any of the remaining 4 candidates should be able to beat Obama. They need to fight hard and as dirty as they know how. No McLame campaign.

  • jbstonesfan

    Yes, which is a very sad indictment on Romney’s candidacy.

  • moononpluto

    I’d say its the other way round actually, they are playing up Santorum and downplaying Romney.

  • moononpluto

    Idaho looking at present like a blowout for Romney….he has 76%

  • jbstonesfan

    Looks like Mitt is going to lose Ohio. How the hell is he going to take on Obama?

  • pm317

    Dems causing chaos by switching parties and voting for Santorum? A comment on Noquarter says that.

  • pm317

    Maybe that is what Obama was referring to when he smiled and winked ad wished Romney good luck this morning. Obots on the lose in Ohio?

  • moononpluto

    only 7000 in it now. could be a draw but i think Romney will just pull it out.

  • Jen the Michigander

    Looks like Ohio is tightening. One percentage point between Sweaters and Mittens. Romney was behind by about 15K and now it’s about 7K.

  • moononpluto

    Romney will win i think, still only 40% of Cleveland in and he’s 47/33 up there with only 7000 in it.

  • Jen the Michigander

    pm317,
    I suspected Obama was up to no good when he made that remark. He’s such a sleazeball!

  • warehouse553

    I’m getting nervous! Shouldn’t Mitt be ahead by now?

  • Jen the Michigander

    Anyone know if Ohio has counted the absentees yet?

  • admin

    The absentees are already in. They were the first votes counted.

  • moononpluto

    only 5500 lead now.

  • Jen the Michigander

    Thanks, Admin.

    Now it’s a 6K difference…

  • jbstonesfan

    Win or lose, he has underperformed.

  • pm317

    Obots want to run against Santorum.. They are targeting women and young women in general this time around. Santorum will be perfect for them to demonize. Well, so be it. It is the republicans election to lose. Fuck ‘conservatives’.

  • warehouse553

    Is there any proof that democrats are helping Santorum like they did in Michigan?

  • moononpluto

    lead now 2500

  • moononpluto

    Pretty sure Romney will win now.

  • admin

    “underperformed” is a kind word.

  • Shadowfax

    Jen the Michigander

    Sweaters and Mittens. ;-)

    Knife fight in a phonebooth.

  • moononpluto

    CNN say Romney looks like has the votes now to win Ohio from Hamilton county.

  • Jen the Michigander

    LOL, Shadowfax!

  • admin

    Warehouse553, Brit Hume just reported that 5% of Democrats voted in Ohio. Santorum won the D vote by 22%. It would be the winning margin if Santorum pulls it out. A big “if” but one that Romney should advertise if the “if” gets done.

  • Shadowfax

    Dems are ‘helping’ sweaters get gotes in Ohio…per Fox guy.

  • Jen the Michigander

    The CNN webpage still has Sweaters ahead by some 2K votes.

  • Shadowfax

    Oh lordy, no excuses for these typos, I am just too tired to type

    Gotes —->. Votes.

  • admin

    “Sweaters and Mittens”. Republicans need someone who will take the gloves off. :)

  • Jen the Michigander

    I don’t see the Romney superpac ads now that my state’s primary is over but he should really hammer Santorum for courting the obots.

  • moononpluto

    Fox says they’re getting word that Santorum may be preparing to go before cameras.

    Think Santorum knows he will lose Ohio and try and get bragging rights.

  • pm317

    A comment on NQ:

    I live in OH and when I handed in my absentee ballot the other day there were several people on the elevator with me who were bragging about being Democrats switching parties to vote for Santorum. It was a truly sickening experience.

    Why wouldn’t they help him? Didn’t he beg them to vote for him in MI?

  • warehouse553

    Thanks, admin.

  • Shadowfax

    Yup admin!

  • Shadowfax

    I bet Mill will win Ohio by a tiny %

  • moononpluto

    Santorum really does not have bragging rights about Oklahoma, deep red state and he beat Romney by 6% and 13000 votes….i mean this should be real Santorum country.

  • Southern Born

    Don’t you get sick of these talking heads on TV who obviously push one candidate over the other and who never consider telling the truth or reporting what is REALLY happening!

    The look on BO’s face today at his press conference when he said GOOD LUCK to Romney tonight keeps playing over and over in my head and it makes my skin crawl!

    Who was the little OBOT loving reporter who gave him the soft ball and the chance to say that? Wasn’t it a woman?

  • Jen the Michigander

    IIRC, it was a woman, but I can’t be sure.

  • moononpluto

    Cant see Romney losing Ohio now.

    All Romneys areas coming hard for him now.

  • moononpluto

    Romney now in lead.

  • Jen the Michigander

    The race narrows more. About 1500 votes apart now.

  • wbboei

    The Romney campaign needs to study the cheating in Ohio, and make sure it cannot happen in the general election. Also, and this is so important, he needs to reach out to the Ron Paul supporters and give them a voice. Many of them are ex Bots who saw Obama as a god that failed. Many of them are great people–they call themselves blue republicans. I met some of his campaign people, and I could not form an opinion as to how good they are. But if they are any good at all, they will reach out to these young people. Right now too many of them think Romney will just kick the can down the road, and have all these costs land in their lap. Many people with money are moving out of the US. What they see it this:

    The dramatic increase in federal spending, the record number of fresh dollars entering the system, and the shrinking tax base all mean that time is running out for savers and earners who still have their homes, their salaries, their savings, and their investments denominated in U.S. dollars.

    I went to answer a message from a friend on FB and came back to see that Mittens has taken the lead.

  • moononpluto

    Romney projected to win Idaho, thats 4 for him, will he make it 5, i think he will.

  • jbstonesfan

    I am embarrassed that I have to support Romney. The general election is going to
    be brutal. Krauthtamer again calling Mitt a weak front runner.

  • Jen the Michigander

    Good news about Kaptur.

  • warehouse553

    Its not Romney’s fault, the far right GOP primary voters are unreasonable in many cases. Look at what they did in Delaware to Mike Castle who would’ve easily won had they left him alone.

  • moononpluto

    extreme right wingers dont see the fact is you will never get republicans winning in deep blue states unless they are moderate and thier stupidity rises to the top.

    I mean they should be doing, “he may be an SOB but he’s our SOB”.

  • Jen the Michigander

    The GOP could have tossed Harry Reid out on his arse if it weren’t for the Tea Party.

  • pm317

    Romney is getting hurt by these ‘conservative’ candidates who arguably have no chance in the general election. Dems are playing mischief but blame the ‘conservatives’ for being stupid. They want purity, morality — a good and honest nerd like Romney who is still married to his first wife and has been a good soldier all his life is not good enough for them.

  • moononpluto

    Best news of the Night…..

    Obama only got 56% of the vote in Oklahoma.

    90% in Tenn.

    88% in Mass.

    That is significant protest votes.

  • moononpluto

    What the fuck is CNN waiting for 50% in Idaho and Romney has nearly 80%

  • jbstonesfan

    Great news about Kaptur!

  • moononpluto

    Looks like Santorum is going to fail to cross the delegate threshold in Georgia which would no delegates for him from Georgia.

  • jbstonesfan

    Mitt wins Idaho. Potatoes!

Who knows how many feminists were sending letters and making phone calls over similar instances in the past? But without any way for an outside observer to measure it, the target of a boycott or letter-writing campaign was never forced to acknowledge that criticism publicly.

    Noboma, I do believe the Tea Party as a whole has good intentions, but they are too uncompromising in situations where it helps Obama and hurts the GOP.

    In Delaware, Castle would have easily won had they left him alone. Everyone knew that O’Donnell couldn’t win but they didn’t care. They didn’t interfere in IL and Mark Kirk won.

    In Nevada, I think Angle was the worst possible candidate.

    In Colorado, Ken Buck lost because of his position on social issues. I think Jane Norton would’ve won.

    In California, Tom Campbell would’ve beaten Boxer.

    There was talk of even primarying Scott Brown even though they knew he is most conservative that the GOP will ever have in MA.

    The Senate majority could be at stake if they go after Luger or any other moderate.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/do-not-write-mitt-romney-off-yet/2012/03/05/gIQAXfyYtR_story.html?wprss=rss_opinions

    But Romney has been fortunate in the weakness of his opponents. If he eventually secures the nomination, his luck may hold.

    In the general election, Romney would not be facing Bill Clinton. Obama has difficulties of his own in the human-touch and blue-collar-appeal departments. His massive alienation of the white working class was the story of the 2010 election (Republicans won this group by a 30-point margin). Obama’s signature presidential achievements — Obamacare and the stimulus — are too unpopular to mention in mixed ideological company. He presides over an economic recovery that is historically weak.

    Many in the media still maintain an image of Obama from 2008. But this is like the impression left on the retina after a bright light has faded. Obama is eloquent — but he seldom is eloquent. He is unifying — though he is among the most polarizing presidents of modern history. He is the fixer of Washington — who has helped make Washington more broken than ever. He is post-partisan — when not channeling Huey Long in a bad mood (see his recent UAW speech). [snip]

    We do know a few things. Obama won in 2008 with 53 percent of the vote during a perfect Democratic storm — an inspiring, blank-slate candidate, against a relatively weak Republican opponent, in a discontented, war-weary nation. Conditions for Obama in 2012 are likely to be less favorable.

    As I count it, Obama’s job approval rating, as measured by Gallup, is 45 percent or lower in 12 battleground states — Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. These are the political conditions at the worst moments of intra-Republican bloodletting. If this is the bottom of GOP political fortunes, it is not very low.

    The strategy of a Republican presidential candidate is straightforward. While keeping the states carried by the GOP in 2008, he must win back Indiana, Virginia and North Carolina — none a particularly heavy lift. He must take Ohio and Florida. Then he needs only to win one more state.

    None of this is impossible — at least for a GOP candidate not named Santorum or Gingrich. Against Obama, Romney would need to bring his A game, having consistently played a few letters below it. He would need to craft a message of economic growth and social mobility that inspires beyond the grounds of the country club.

    But confident predictions of Romney’s defeat are not only premature. They are seriously frivolous.

    Obama loses Dem primary in 15 Oklahoma counties

    (AP) – 3 hours ago
    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — President Barack Obama collected the most votes in the Oklahoma Democratic primary, but lost in 15 counties.
    With 98 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday, Obama won 57 percent of the vote. Four other candidates combined for 43 percent of the vote, including anti-abortion activist and Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry who received 18 percent of the vote.
    According to Democratic Party rules, Terry is eligible for a delegate since he won more than 15 percent of the statewide vote. Terry beat Obama in 12 counties, mostly in western Oklahoma. Terry acknowledges he can’t win the presidency but says he hopes to cause Obama’s defeat in the fall.
    Oklahoma earned the nickname “reddest of the red” states after Obama’s failed to win a single county in the 2008 presidential race

    Unfortunately, NOBODY running this year is fit to be president (except maybe Darcy Richardson challenging Obama, and he’s not serious). Romney may be the lesser evil.

    Here’s how the Globe described what Romney then did:

    “As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway. It was a tiny preview of a trait he would grow famous for in business: emotion-free crisis management.”

    Doubt dogging Romney

    March 7, 2012

    So Mitt Romney finally seems to have squeaked out a decent Super Tuesday last night after hours in which it looked like he was going to be humiliated with losses in every major state. But the GOP front-runner has a real problem.

    Romney remains on a seemingly inexorable path to the nomination, the only GOP candidate with a clear path to a majority of delegates. But he is not winning rock-ribbed Republican hearts at exactly the time he needs to be.

    In fact, he took several steps backward after his win in Michigan last week. Momentum from that victory should have won him Tennessee and made an Ohio victory a foregone conclusion. But he lost Tennessee last night by a far larger margin than anyone expected, and he only crawled into the winner’s circle in Ohio.

    t’s time to recalculate the enduring dynamic of this endless GOP race. People have been saying for months that it’s a race between Mitt and the Not-Romneys, but the results last night suggest that term (which I invented in a Post column in October) needs to be amended.

    It would be truer to say Mitt has only succeeded when he’s made himself a Not — first the Not-Bachmann, then the Not-Perry, then the Not-Cain, then the Not-Newt and, where he’s made his case stick, the Not-Santorum.

    Romney’s argument is that the others can’t win, that their views are not congruent with the mainstream — and he has spent an enormous amount of money on negative ads to talk Republican voters into the idea.

    I think he’s right: They can’t. But it’s a hard fact that Romney hasn’t succeeded in convincing more than a third of the GOP electorate that they should surrender their deep doubts about him and support him anyway because he’s the only one who can beat Barack Obama.

    Rick Santorum has found a way to connect with voters who are discomfited by Romney. Some of it has to do with Romney’s ideological impurity on health care. And some of it — especially among very conservative evangelical voters — surely has to do with his Mormon faith.

    Exit polls suggest Santorum is winning overwhelmingly among conservatives who want a candidate like them. Even though Santorum is a Catholic and they’re Protestants, he’s certainly a lot more like them than Romney, who comes from a minority faith tradition.

    What can Romney do? He won’t quit his faith. He’s already set his position on health care in stone — he likes what he did in Massachusetts and no matter the similarities to ObamaCare, he’ll repeal the federal mandate.

    He’s just going to have to barrel ahead.

    Next Tuesday is likely to be a bad day for him, with evangelical-heavy Kansas, Alabama and Mississippi more like the Southern states Santorum and Newt Gingrich have won.

    He’ll likely get on track as the larger states start to come in play later in March and April.

    But whatever victories he scored last night, he’s bruised and bloodied.

    Romney can win the nomination as the Not-Santorum. But if that’s how he does it, if he doesn’t succeed in uniting the party on a positive note, he will be seriously weakened going into the general election.

    The GOP could have tossed Harry Reid out on his arse if it weren’t for the Tea Party.
    ———————-
    Obama’s ruse is working.
    FWIW I wholeheartedly support the tea party concept. From my viewpoint the grassroots movement came first. Republicans, desperate for leverage, listened. Democrats denied the veracity of the movement because they already had what they wanted, Obama and majority both houses. Republicans have attempted to graft themselves to the tea parties in struggles which weaken these tea parties, but do not destroy. (eg recent resignation of major organizer. forget name.)

    I find it so incredible that Main Street can be cast as something other than it is. The ultimate Twilight Zone.

    I attended an AFP hosted function in Scranton within the last 6 months – NOTHING forced upon any attendee. Local small business owners spoke describing and decrying onerous regulations. We were rallied to fight against Obama economic policies, then assembled at high school to protest while Obama brainwashed some more kids. Polite, clean, well-dressed, well-spoken people. Mostly older because they have the time. One Latino mother with her children, boy and girl approaching their teen years. Plus the grandmother. Fit in very well but I did wonder if they were an Obama plant. Not by their speech or actions which appeared honorable. They were being home-schooled and this rally was part of their education. It’s just that we exchanged email addys because she wanted some help in words to deflect the very subject at hand here – how to explain that the tea party movement is real. But she never emailed back. And I am cynical by nature. However, not cynical where the tea party is concerned.

    If health allows, I will attend AFP hosted rally in DC on March 27 – hands off my healthcare. Signup page has buses coming from MI, NC, NY NJ PA VA MD. Open signup. Bus waiting 7 am at scranton area mall and many other locations. See for yourself at link below. Not union members. What else can I tell you to validate the concept of grass roots?

    DUPLICITY

    At AIPAC conference, Obama boasts of his support for Israel while effectively ruling out military action on Iran

    It may well have been one of the most shamelessly duplicitous speeches in American presidential history.

    Standing before the delegates of the 2012 AIPAC Policy Conference on Sunday, the largest annual gathering of pro-Israel activists in America, U.S. President Barack Obama delivered a speech filled with praise of himself and his commitment to Israel’s security. In that same speech, however he effectively ruled out any American or American-assisted military action against Israel’s most pressing security problem: the Iranian nuclear program.

    The rebuke was long expected by observers and Israeli officials, and indicated by recent press reports. So, of course, was Obama’s rhetorical attempt to paint himself as Israel’s best friend in the world ever.

    “You don’t just have to count on my words,” the president said, “You can look at my deeds. At every crucial juncture – at every fork in the road – we have been there for Israel. Every single time.”

    The president hoped, apparently, that his listeners had forgotten his first year in office, when he treated PM Netanyahu like a pariah and was “there for” the Palestinians in a way no other American president has ever been.

    Nonetheless, Obama gave his audience the solemn declaration that “Israel’s place as a Jewish and democratic state must be protected,” a sentiment that he promptly undermined in the only really important part of his speech.

    “No Israeli government can tolerate a nuclear weapon in the hands of a regime that denies the Holocaust,” he said of the Iranian regime,

    threatens to wipe Israel off the map, and sponsors terrorist groups committed to Israel’s destruction. It is also counter to the national security interests of the United States. Indeed, the entire world has an interest in preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

    If there was a moment to endorse, or at least not openly oppose military action, it would have been at this juncture; but it was precisely then that Obama hit Israel square in the face with his refusal to do either.

    I firmly believe that an opportunity remains for diplomacy – backed by pressure – to succeed. The United States and Israel both assess that Iran does not yet have a nuclear weapon, and we are exceedingly vigilant in monitoring their program. Now, the international community has a responsibility to use the time and space that exists. Sanctions are continuing to increase, and this July – thanks to our diplomatic coordination – a European ban on Iranian oil imports will take hold…. Both Israel and the United States have an interest in seeing this challenge resolved diplomatically. After all, the only way to truly solve this problem is for the Iranian government to make a decision to forsake nuclear weapons. That’s what history tells us.

    “History,” needless to say, tells us no such thing. In fact, practicaly the only circumstances in which a regime has willfully given up such weapons has been under credible military threat, attack, or when the regime itself collapses.

    More important, however, is Obama’s obvious intention to put off any military action on Iran to the non-existent future. He already knows that Israeli officials believe there is no time for delays, and that Israel, or the U.S., or both must attack Iran’s nuclear program soon if it is to prevent the program from passing the point of no return. Obama’s statement, in other words, is both a refusal to commit America to Israel’s aid against Iran, and very possibly a red light on an unassisted Israeli attack.

    As if to drive the point home, Obama explicitly ruled out the possibility of military action except in the vague sense of leaving “all options on the table.”

    As President and Commander-in-Chief, I have a deeply-held preference for peace over war…. Already, there is too much loose talk of war. Over the last few weeks, such talk has only benefited the Iranian government, by driving up the price of oil, which they depend upon to fund their nuclear program. For the sake of Israel’s security, America’s security, and the peace and security of the world, now is not the time for bluster; now is the time to let our increased pressure sink in, and to sustain the broad international coalition that we have built. Now is the time to heed that timeless advice from Teddy Roosevelt: speak softly, but carry a big stick. As we do, rest assured that the Iranian government will know our resolve, and that our coordination with Israel will continue.

    Over 2,000 years ago, on the eve of another war, the Spartan leader Sthenelaides listened to a representative of the Athenian empire give a lengthy speech setting forth his city’s case in its dispute with Sparta. Then Sthenelaides rose and said,

    The long speech of the Athenians I do not pretend to understand. They said a good deal in praise of themselves, but nowhere denied that they are injuring our allies and the Peloponnesians. And yet if they behaved well against the Persians then, but ill towards us now, they deserve double punishment for having ceased to be good and for having become bad. We meanwhile are the same then and now, and shall not, if we are wise, disregard the wrongs of our allies, or put off till to-morrow the duty of assisting those who must suffer today.

    One hopes that Israel’s leaders, in the face of an administration with so much praise for itself and so little good behavior to match it, will find within themselves a similar stoic courage.

    Newt is not going to win the nomination, its just not going to happen, the guy didnt even finish 2nd anywhere last night, even Ron paul beat him in 4 states.

    Newt is dead in the water.

    Lets talk reality here.

    Regardless of how you feel about Romney, he won 6 states last night,

    Romney won blowouts in 2 of them, Mass all 38 del, and Idaho all 32 dels , he took the entire delegate slate,no one else got a single delegate from those states.

    In Virginia, 46 delegates…Romney got 43 of them.

    In Oklahoma, where Santorum only won by 6%……Santorum got 14 delegate, Romney 13, Gingrich 13.

    In Alaska Romney won by 3 % and got 8 del, santorum 7, Paul 6 and Gingrich 3

    In Georgia, Gingrich has 42 delegates, Romney 10, Santorum 0 because Rick fell below 20% and there failed to cross del threshold.

    In N.Dakota. Santorum picked up 11 delegates, Paul 8 and Romney 7 delegates.

    In Ohio Romney has at present 26, the others are debatable as Santorum filing problems means Romney will pick up many more.

    In Tenn, its Santorum 25, Romney 12, Gingrich 7 with 11 to be decided.

    In Vermont, its Romney 8, Paul, 3 and Santorum 3.

    So to be honest, this was not a bad night for Romney, in states where needed, he racked delegates amounts hugely.

    At present Romney took 197 delegates last night. Santorum 60, Newt 65, Paul 17.

    Look at the vast difference and they called it a bad night, i think not.

  • blue

    From a very practical standpoint my spouse and I have been drawn to the Romney camp. He is the only one to vote for if we want to accomplish the goal of dumping Obama. Plus, over time we have grown to respond to Romney’s approach, his likeable personality, his charming family and his reasoned arguments why he is up to the job. Face it, the others are just not going to be elected.

    It has been interesting to watch the evolution of the two parties. It has been going on since the Civil War when they split into two partisan parties. After LBJ signed the Voter Rights Act they flipped and reshuffled into the “red and blue” parties which they are today. This primary has graphically shown the splits in the GOP. The Tea Party, the fiscal conservatives, the religious group and the Constitution purists – the radical wing – and the so called moderates who usually get into office.

    The splits in the Dem party have been a little more obscure – but still there. The far left radicals and the moderates. The result is at least four parties but we are still ostensibly voting as two parties, employing identities that don’t exist anymore.

    We well remember our distaste for the Reagan Democrats and here we are, Romney Democrats!

    This the way to get rid of Obama, so that is what we will do!! It is awkward and painful to vote for the party we have never supported. Our admiration for the sheer decency of Romney has helped.

    ——————

    Thank you for your comment about the Tea Party. I view the Tea Party the same way. In the beginning, they were not beholden to anyone. They were not so much concerned with social issues as they were with BIG government running amuck. They are a true grassroots movement as evidenced by the many small groups of different names found throughout the country espousing the same principles. These groups are not made up solely of Republicans, yet I understand why many people who identify with the tea party movement are from the Republican party. The tea party has a goal of reigning in government spending and excess which does not seem to jive with what seems to be the Democratic party’s view on government, nor even many of the Republican party elite’s view on the same since that party has become big spenders, too. Perhaps if these small groups throughout the country merged into an actual political “party”, then the movement might be able to better fend off the sleazy attacks that they media, the democratic party, and in some circles, the Republican party, throw at them. I resoect the Tea Party movement because it wants a strong economic foumdation for this country so that America will thrive. It knows the only way this will happen is by changing (real change) the way things are done in Washington. They are not “go along to get along” people, and that is what is one of their best qualities. This is what is needed to break the lobbyists grip on government, and to restore some sanity into how government is run. It’s all about fiscal responsibility, and that resonates with me. You cannot have a strong country without it.

  • nomobama

    blue, I don’t have an issue with Romney as a person. I think that he seems to be a nice guy. That, of course, is a plus. My big concerns with him, as espoused by Mrs. Smith, is that he is Obama light. If I don’t like Obama, then I am not going to be too fond of Romney. If I want another 4 years of an Obama like administration, he would be top of my list. I have concluded that Democrats who are not too keen on Obama will like Romney because he is basically a Democrat. Right now, I despise the Democrats. Yet, I will still vote Romney if he is the nominee with the hopes that he will reverse Obamacare as he has stated. If he doesn’t, then he will be another Obama to me. What bothers me most here is that there are those of you who are indicating that Romney is the only one that you can support against Obama. If by chance another person is nominated, these people will then vote for who, a third party candidate? Or will they skip the election? This election is a put up or shut up election. Will disaffected Democrats be there to oust the Obamaists from the Democratic party. If they won’t stand against the Obamists now, then they should be held accountable for another 4 years of Obama if he happens to be re-elected. It’s going to take every vote to see him and his communist friends booted from office. It’s time to reclaim the party, not enable the current Democrat establishment.

    I’m glad Mitt won Ohio. With all of the UnFab 4 running, I would hate for Sweaters to be running against Barry. Barry would win, hands down. Newt has no chance of winning the primary, he would do well in the debates but not win against Barry because he doesn’t pull in the moderates. Ron Paul pulls in the moderates but not the right wing.
    I think Mitt is the only one that is middle of the road enough to pull in moderates, Independents and hopefully Rethugs will not pull another McPalin and stay home. If Mitt wins the nomination he needs to a good VP.

  • Shadowfax

    As a candidate, Obama pledged that lobbyists “will not run my White House.” But on Monday, the president brought in one of this town’s most prominent lobbyists to run his White House — or at least a nice piece of it.

    Steve Ricchetti, whose long list of lobbying clients included Fannie Mae, General Motors, the American Hospital Association and Eli Lilly, was tapped to be counselor to Vice President Biden.

    Ricchetti achieved this feat — getting around the ban on lobbyists serving in the administration — by using one of Washington’s most-honored traditions: the loophole. Just as Obama won the presidency, Ricchetti de-registered as a lobbyist for his various clients. But he remained president of the lobbying firm that continued to work for many of those same clients, as well as a few more, such as the American Bankers Association.

    Only in today’s Washington could a president circumvent his own ban on hiring lobbyists by hiring the head of a lobbying firm.

    For me the major story of yesterday was the loss of Dennis Kucinich – in a democratic primary! After vociferously and repeatadly opposing the obama health insurance plan as a scam and a major giveaway to the pharmecutical industry it took a mere ride to Ohio on the president’s plane to convince him that everything he knew was wrong. Plus becomes minus, up is down, and ofcourse its always been east asia we have been at war with. After the plane ride dennis gave a interview on publuc radio and sounded like someone had beat him to a pulp, the agony in his voice was audible.

    So be it dennis, you betrayed everything you knew to be true and proved yourself in the end to be a base opportunist unworthy of years of accumulated progressive accolades.

  • Anything latest on the breibart tape’s?

  • BASIL99

    Not to be a contrarin or to question anyone else’s POV but FWIW, here’s mine.

    I have a gut instinct there is a rod of steel in Romney. We haven’t seen much of it, yet,but I believe it is there. How else could he have gone through the past year of he!!? Either the steel is his, his wife;s or his advisers but I do believe that once the field is whittled down MR will go after BO with both barrels blazing.

    That is what I suspect.

    I think this nice guy act is just that – an act. Ask his competitors how”nice” he is in competition. He can and will play dirty and that is what we need,

    What I would love to see – but probably won’t happen – is an MR -NG ticket. Now that would be a sight to behold. In any case, I hope NG keeps up his relentless ragging on BO, I hope everyone can come together after the primaries and I hope everyone puts in 110% to kick BO’s butt out of our house.

    That’s my hop.

  • BASIL99

    Haven’t heard anything, yet vanity4USA.

  • BASIL99

    Up to 6 coal plants to close under BO. Read this and weep and start cutting own any available wood i to keep yourhouse warm next year. And forget about driving. :evil:

    From HA.

    As gasoline prices continue to rise and keep the heat on President Obama’s energy policies, critics also are accusing the president of shifting support away from the coal industry, a major source of fuel and jobs in several battleground states, including Colorado, Michigan and Ohio.

    Lawmakers on both sides of the partisan aisle say Obama administration environmental regulations aimed at cutting greenhouse gas emissions are poised to hit jobs and consumers harder than the Keystone XL decision at the same time the president seems to have abandoned his stated support for the coal industry and clean-coal technology…

    In late February, a bipartisan group of 219 members of Congress led by Reps. Ed Whitfield, Kentucky Republican, and John Barrow, Georgia Democrat, sent a letter to the Office of Management and Budget calling for a stop to the EPA’s greenhouse gas rule-making.

    “Affordable, reliable electricity is critical to keeping and growing jobs in the United States, and such a standard will likely drive up energy prices and threaten domestic jobs,” they wrote. “Forcing a transition to commercially unproven technologies could send thousands of jobs overseas and raise electricity rates on families and seniors at a time when the nation can least afford it.”

    We’re talking about an estimated 180,000 jobs between direct power plant employment and related support industry activity. We’re also looking at a hit to the power grid amounting to 12% of the electricity we generate. As those plants go offline, something is going to have to take up the slack, and even three new nuclear power plants won’t manage it. (Not to mention they won’t be on line for at least four years, if not longer.)

    I know this may seem like dry, boring stuff to some of you busy people in Washington, DC. It’s just not one of those sexy, exciting topics that get you face time on the Sunday morning shows. But if you want to impress the people in some of the most critical states in the fall battle, try keeping them employed and stopping their utility bills from going through the roof. What a novel idea, eh?

    A New New Deal, the Kuch betrayed his principles and voted for the Obama health care bill, as you note. Kucinich betrayed himself and his constituents. Now he is in exile and even his attempts to run for office from Oregon failed.

  • Shadowfax

    Drudge has that spinning light up on one the tapes to be released soon:

    Earlier today, Buzzfeed’s Ben Smith announced on Twitter that video researcher Andrew Kaczynski had released “the mysterious Harvard/Obama/race video that the Breitbart folks have been talking about.”

    The video, which Kaczynski says was “licensed from a Boston television station,” shows a young Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright–about whom we will be releasing significant information in the coming hours.

    However, the video has been selectively edited–either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself. Over the course of the day, Breitbart.com will be releasing additional footage that has been hidden by Obama’s allies in the mainstream media and academia.

    Breitbart.com Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro will appear on The Sean Hannity Show to discuss the tape. The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News’ Hannity.

  • [...] As Hillaryis44 noted in the New Hampshire primary (in which Obama lost 20% of the vote), a significant number of Democrats detest the policy consequences of Team Obama and are making their ire known early.  So, when the media rips the Repbulicans for “lack of unity” and “lack of enthusiasm with the base”, please do not lose sight of the fact that it isn’t all wine-and-roses over at Empire Central, either.!!

    So let me get this straight:

    After all these years, Buzzfeed just happens to find the same video Breitbart promised to release. A video no one in the mainstream media — with all their resources — could be bothered to find during the ’08 election cycle.

    Now, with the threat of the Bigs publishing it, Obama’s palace guard preemptively distributes it — with severe edits.

    The corruption in the media has gone too far. They are open partisans and must be countered with everything we have.

  • BRIETBART: Now, MORE POWERFUL than anyone can possibly imagine!Many citizens are motivated to push back on Team Obama and his cultural Stormtroopers: This includes a Hollywood producer and a freelance journalist giving “Managing Media” lessons.

    Details about the Oklahoma primary are also provided. They show Obama in none too popular among many Democrats. I bet the press doesn’t focus too much on those results.

    Romney campaign says losing nomination would take ‘act of God’

    Brokaw Makes Fun of Romney Facial Tics
    —rdbrewer

    Classy, urbane Tom Brokaw makes fun of Mitt Romney on MSNBC. You know, MSNBC, where the elegant people go.

    He made fun of Romney’s “white man’s overbite.” That’s something I never heard of before. Apparently there is some racial stereotype attached to white people who are having fun. Something to do with the teeth.

    From Mediaite:

    Seasoned broadcast veteran Tom Brokaw appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and did a hilarious impression of one of Mitt Romney‘s trademark facial tics — the “white man overbite.” Prior to Brokaw’s imitation, the other panelists were discussing what the Republican hopeful had to do to corral conservative supporters.
    . . .

    “I have not seen that dance step from the Romney campaign,” Brokaw observed. “I mean, that’s a really slow move, and he tends to go one way and crashes into the wall and goes out or you know, he goes out and does the white man overbite!”

    The MSNBC panel thought that was hi-larious. That’s just the way they roll at MSNBC. They’re full of class.

    Also, you can catch Brokaw all week at Gotham Douchebag Comedy Club.

    Romney, Santorum camps at odds over delegate math (Mitt’s Voodoo Math)

    March 7, 2012

    In a memo to reporters, Romney Political Director Rich Beeson laid out his camp’s view that neither Santorum nor any of the other candidates in the race has any chance of securing enough delegates to secure the Republican nomination……

    “Super Tuesday dramatically reduced the likelihood that any of Governor Romney’s opponents can obtain the Republican nomination,” Beeson wrote. “As Governor Romney’s opponents attempt to ignore the basic principles of math, the only person’s odds of winning they are increasing are President Obama’s.”

    Beeson cited Romney’s current lead in delegates and a tough upcoming primary and caucus calendar as examples of the tough road ahead for Romney’s rivals. CNN currently estimates Romney to have won 404 delegates, well ahead of Santorum at 165, Newt Gingrich with 106 and Ron Paul with 66. A candidate needs 1,144 delegates to seal up the GOP nomination.

    “Neither opponent succeeded in closing his delegate deficit, and the calendar ahead offers them dwindling opportunities to close the gap,” Beeson wrote. “Looking at the weeks ahead, the remaining 34 contests have turned into a steep uphill climb for Governor Romney’s opponents.”

    But, speaking to CNN, Santorum campaign adviser John Brabender brushed off the Romney campaign’s analysis as “voodoo math,” saying the figures were meant to dissuade voters from casting ballots for rival candidates.

    “What he is saying he wants to do is disenfranchise Republican primary voters,” Brabender said, pointing out that many of the delegates currently awarded to Romney in estimates were non-binding.

    “What Romney is trying to do is call the game before it’s even halftime because he has a lead,” Brabender said.

    He asserted conservatives shouldn’t let a “moderate” dictate the winner of the Republican primary.

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/03/07/romney-santorum-camps-at-odds-over-delegate-math/
    ……….

    It is still a horse race and not locked up for Mitt — and why there is this push by the MSM and the GOP-e to make Mitt inevitable (as well as Santorum’s PAC riding their slip-stream barrage calling on Newt to get out).

    Time to look at the numbers.

    They are trying to “disenfranchise” primary voters by calling the game for Romney.

  • gonzotx

    Mrs Smith they can call ANYONE a strategist. I don’t need to dig further, the comment means nothing to me. Romney didn’t say it, I don’t feel a cult following for Mitt. This is a none issue.They are trying to make something out of nothing.

  • ShortTermer

    Romney CAN NOT win without support from the conservative branch. Period. Another repeat of 2008; it was not the Independents who won for McCain, it was the Conservatives who stayed home and refused to compromise their principles. Simple as that. And there is no imperical evidence that Romney is a fighter, unless you consider his carpetbomb ads that he uses against his own party. Not there; figment of imaginations. Someone the other day suggested some appeal for Romney was ‘the optics” heaven help us if that is what voting has come down to.

    Re: the Tea Party. This is the essence of an email that the Tea Party groups are sending out, just look at what the IRS has done at the behest of Our Dear Leader:

    Dear Patriot,

    The Obama administration has drastically changed this country for the worse. From the bailouts to Obamacare, from energy prices to job growth, everything Obama has touched has diminished the United States in some way. And now he has turned the nation’s tax collecting agency – the IRS – into a political arm for his re-election campaign!

    Obama’s IRS has sent dozens of letters to Tea Party groups demanding they justify their status as non-profit organizations. These letters, which are intimidating in nature and are clearly meant as a means of political intimidation, even demand things that have no bearing on an organization’s non-profit status. They demand to know the nature of the organizations’ activities, they demand they disclose the names of their donors, and they demand the groups respond in an absurdly short period of time!

    We are one of the groups facing this attack from the Obama administration, and as a large organization with hundreds of thousands of members across the country, we thankfully have a team of talented lawyers capable of dealing with the issue. But the very strength of the Tea Party is exactly what makes it vulnerable to this sort of attack: we are a bottom-up, grassroots movement with thousands of groups of patriots spread all over this country. The vast majority of these organizations are small, have minuscule budgets, and cannot afford the legal counsel necessary to deal with this sort of intimidation.

    I’m furious that the Obama administration would resort to these tactics, but I can’t say that I’m surprised. That’s why we’re coming to the defense of these local groups in the Tea Party movement and hiring a crack team of legal experts to counter the Obama administration’s intimidation tactics. If your local Tea Party group received one of these letters, please email us immediately.

    Weaknesses Exposed- No matter how you play it…

    Romney won Ohio by 14 votes if that isn’t dragging himself over the finish line… what is? Stop sugarcoating the Truth…

    Romney’s narrow win yesterday in Ohio’s primary — the most coveted prize on Super Tuesday — exposed anew his weaknesses. The former Massachusetts governor edged Rick Santorum by less than 1 percentage point in Ohio and the pair split yesterday’s other major races, so neither candidate could claim a decisive showing.

    Newt is not going to win the nomination, its just not going to happen, the guy didnt even finish 2nd anywhere last night, even Ron paul beat him in 4 states.

    Newt is dead in the water.

    Lets talk reality here.

    Regardless of how you feel about Romney, he won 6 states last night,

    Romney won blowouts in 2 of them, Mass all 38 del, and Idaho all 32 dels , he took the entire delegate slate,no one else got a single delegate from those states.

    In Virginia, 46 delegates…Romney got 43 of them.

    In Oklahoma, where Santorum only won by 6%……Santorum got 14 delegate, Romney 13, Gingrich 13.

    In Alaska Romney won by 3 % and got 8 del, santorum 7, Paul 6 and Gingrich 3

    In Georgia, Gingrich has 42 delegates, Romney 10, Santorum 0 because Rick fell below 20% and there failed to cross del threshold.

    In N.Dakota. Santorum picked up 11 delegates, Paul 8 and Romney 7 delegates.

    In Ohio Romney has at present 26, the others are debatable as Santorum filing problems means Romney will pick up many more.

    In Tenn, its Santorum 25, Romney 12, Gingrich 7 with 11 to be decided.

    In Vermont, its Romney 8, Paul, 3 and Santorum 3.

    So to be honest, this was not a bad night for Romney, in states where needed, he racked delegates amounts hugely.

    At present Romney took 197 delegates last night. Santorum 60, Newt 65, Paul 17.

    Look at the vast difference and they called it a bad night, i think not.

    if the motivation of the posters here is to beat O, Romney is the only chance we have…Newt and Santorum will give O a landslide…

    I completely agree with Moononpluto…let’s get realistic

    also, btw…have you noticed that everyone is gunning for Romney…in the same way they went after Hillary…they withhold all Romney’s winning info so the biggest audience won’t hear it and then all the pundits, Fox, MSNBC, CNN, etc start pontificating that Romney had a weak night…he is weak, bla, bla, bla…

    for goodness sakes, he came in second in Georgia and Newt did not even hit 50% in his own state…

    let’s get real friends and beat O…

    In Ohio, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, Romney had 37.9 percent of the vote and Santorum 37.1 percent, according to the Associated Press tally. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had 14.6 percent and Representative Ron Paul of Texas had 9.2 percent.
    Romney’s Ohio victory solidifies his status as the Republican front-runner, said John Green, a political science professor at the University of Akron.
    ‘A Win Is a Win’
    “A win is a win, even if it’s a close win and even if it’s not really pretty,” Green said. “The winner of Ohio will likely get a boost, even if it’s a very slim win, and a loss is a loss.”

    I am with you S, but I guess you already know that. The objective is to beat the fraud. I doubt anyone here is in love with any Repub candidate. I just want the best chance of winning, and that is with Mitt.

    Barack Obama’s Sole Article in Harvard Law Review Promotes Abortion

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) – How strongly does Barack Obama believe in unlimited abortions? Strongly enough that the only article he wrote for the Harvard Law Review while he was a law school student talked about how fervently believed in legalized abortion. Obama’s name wasn’t attached to any other legal scholarship during the time.

    In an article unearthed by the Politico web site, Obama, as the president of the Harvard Law Review, wrote an unsigned article touting abortion.

    The web site says the article comes in at six pages and is contained in the third volume of the 1990 Harvard Law Review.

    In the work, Obama considered a parenthetical abortion issue — whether unborn children have a legal right to sue their mothers for damage sustained during pregnancy, from such things as alcohol or illegal drugs.

    Obama says no and writes supportively of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case and another from the Illinois Supreme Court saying no such right exists.

    According to Politico, Obama wrote: “[T]he case raises the broader policy and constitutional considerations that argue against using civil liability to control the behavior of pregnant women.”

    In a discussion of abortion itself, Obama wrote that government has more important business than “ensuring that any particular fetus is born.”

    He also decried any limits on abortion, saying the government has an interest in “preventing increasing numbers of children from being born in to lives of pain and despair.”

    Politico said the Obama campaign confirmed the pro-abortion presidential candidate wrote the piece in question and that it was one of the typical articles law students would write briefing and opining on federal and state court decisions.

    In an email to the web site, Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt also confirmed that Obama “remains committed to” the sentiments he expressed in the piece.

    Obama’s article is on page 823 of Volume 103 of the Harvard Law Review and would likely be located in larger public libraries and databases that chronicle legal articles in scholarly publications.

    sorry, you were making unproveable statements…give me the name of the quoted “strategist”.

    Why don’t you keep your anger in check?

    S,

    I agrtee with much of what you say. Much as Newt is a warrior par excellence it does not seem to be in the cards for him to pull the nom out of his hat. Santorum, well, to be kind, if he managed to limp over the finish line I would hole my nose and vote for him. But I agree. let’s get real. What are the alternatives?

    1 -who else can get in the race and win enough delegates _ no one
    2 – What are the odds of a brokered convention? Next to zero.
    3 – We have all had quite a lesson in how to turn a turd sandwich into a delectable gourmet meal. Whose to say the same can’t be done with MR? Think marketing. heavy duty – teflon-coated – totally scripted if need be – pullout the teleprompters – hair, make-up, a few singing lessons, Listen, if the POS in the WH can fool all the people all the time surely MR can do the same with the right staff.

    As far as anyone staying home because they don’t like whose on the ballot all I can say is those people will be responsible for selling the rest of us down the river. No when to retreat and live to fight another day as the saying goes.

  • If he does not andrew site need to put the entire tape on his site! And “WE” the people must spread it

    Hold

    And apologies for all thew other typos

  • Mrs. Smith

    From what has already been written today about Breitbart’s video release, I’m hoping the best parts of the video are saved for last when Obama is in the throws of a heated campaign and the video expose send him to Hell for good.

  • BASIL99

    Well, S, I got so PO’d at the anchors I sent off this gem. Wonder if Brokaw will ever lay eyes on it.

    Hey, Brokow, you ugly white POS. Have you looked in the mirror lately? Have you seen how ugly wrinkled and overbitten your mouth is? Are you having fun reliving your youth as a reborn white man in a black body, something you were too afraid to do 30 years ago but which now, as a politically correct attitude, is a safe gamble?

    You are a hypocritical POS who has sh!t on journalistic ethics and helped make a mockery of the dying lame stream media dinosaur. a few years from now and you will be gone. All that will be left are a few outrageous, arrogant, smug off-base comments on the bubble world you and your ilk reside in.
