Thanks for this report! And a cool writing style to go with it—
It’ll be interesting to see how many of the RINO Romney supporters and news media types back Obama over Gingrich.
Awesome Dude, Thanks. Gold Star fer sure.
There is nothing like the smell of panicked RINO in the morning.
Agreed in full
You know... I have spent a bit of time in the Sudetenland...
I think if Romney loses the nomination, a fuming Ann Coulter just might pull the lever for Obama.
Quite frankly I don’t give a Rat’s A** who Coulter votes for.
Let her. We already saw Colin Powell's "conservatism" at work. Let all these shills be exposed. I'm sick of Coulter. Apparently her hangout with the GLAD crowd has messed up her mind.
I just listened to Romney on Fox News trying to resurrect Newt receiving 1.6 million from Fannie/Freddie issue. He was so freaking obviously whining. He sounded like the class tattletale...Sidney Sawyer snitching on Tom to Aunt Polly.
Now, we have Brit Hume, a known Romney supporter, coming on to “analyze” the interview just finished with his pal, Mitt Romney.
Fox News: We Romney, We Decide
The Romney News Network.
BTW, why does a half billionaire leave a Crony Capitalist firm and spend millions to win the presidency, when it only pays a couple hundred thousand a year? Why does it make me nervous that Bain wants the presidency so badly that they’ve been running to get it for nearly a decade?
This is Hillary /Obama 2008 all over again..except on the Republican side. Once actual voting began, the “inevitable” and the long establishment favorite started to crumble.
If Newt is the nominee, he should ban all former Romney staffers from his campaign. They would be the enemy within.
“Moderates” like Romney just can’t seem to understand why everybody doesn’t love them, except a few extremists at the margins. After all, they’re “right in the middle”, all things to all people, and willing to compromise without letting little things like liberty and free enterprise get in the way.
When I checked Intrade this morning (probably 8 AM EST), the wager was real close to 50-50. Newt had a slight advantage (betting on his side cost more than betting on Romney), but rounding to whole percentage points was 50-50.
I checked just now -- 59-42 in favor of Newt. Hahahahaha.
They are already showing their hand by supporting Romney. I expect most of them will attempt to have it both ways, and seek redemption by grudgingly supporting Newt, or at least bashing Obama.
Current events with an open field of GOP choices is a better measure of their position, compared with what they say after a GOP nominee has been named.
I'm not a conspiracy nut, but I would not be surprised if the Mormon church was somehow involved. Those at the very top have to know it's a scam built on a historical fallacy, and the organiztion wants so very badly to be considered mainstream and not a just cult created by a con man that uses a family focus to lure people in.
Newt says he himself netted less than $50k from them, and they IGNORED his advice completely anyway
Mittens is desperate, I’m tellin ya... and acting it, per your example xzins
Every time Mitt talks at the debates and I ask G-d to expose him..he messes up. Did it during the "hidden mic incident" and did it during the last two debates.
Yep, G-d is messing with Mitt.
Though ossified is apt if referring to the gutless RINO bastards having been allowed to ignore us for so many years that they no longer deem it necessary to offer even the pretense of same.
Ann Coulter is an RNC tool.
“Fox News: We Romney, We Decide
The Romney News Network”
And that is no joke. Fox has been NOTHING but Romney this morning. The interview you mention went on forever-—I thought Willard would never shut up. Then afterward, as Hemmer and McCallum discussed the primaries, they showed clips of Romney, but not Newt (with one brief exception). It’s blatant and it’s embarrassing.
hmmmm . . . well, i know what i meant .. lol
Pretty crappy few days for Romney. He LOSES Iowa (no more historic two in a row). He gets POUNDED in SC.
Then...the Monday morning Rasmussen numbers show him losing big in FL.
Oh...and let’s not forget: Jeb is now neutral (no doubt b/c of SC/John King).
I’ll bet the FL Romney campaign stuff is FREAKING OUT!!!!
“Why does it make me nervous that Bain wants the presidency...”
Probably because they’re salivating over the trillions from We the People’s US Treasury that GS was given to play with ?
Just a haunch , mind you
If Newt wins the nomination, maybe Mitt will finally give up on his electioneering and realize that conservatives will no longer stand for stuffed shirts without passion. In spite of the ‘RINO establishment’ behind the curtain, we can tear that curtain down and get our country back.
There is no place to go at this point to get balanced news.
Conservatives need to keep Newt on a short leash, and Newt needs to keep slamming the opposition...it’s a long way to November.
I saw those poll results showing Newt in a virtual dead heat with Obama and just had to laugh at all the talking heads who keep telling us that Newt can’t defeat Obama.”
Is that a Gallup poll? Would you have a link for us on that?
That is Romney’s ONLY argument. If it can be shown that he is NOT better than Newt in the general, then...he is done.
(He might be done anyway. If he loses Florida, and thus goes 1 for 4, winning only Democrat NH...he is going to be hurting, hurting, hurting).
Newt will take Romney to the woodshed again, and the momentum will be nearly unstoppable for Newt.
And when Newt is on a roll, get out of the way. Let's hope Santorum is smart enough to figure it out, like Perry did. (Not holding my breath that “little Ricky” is even smart enough to understand it. He will cling to the rail till the last light goes out.
The new model is rather than one nominally ‘balanced’ MSM source one needs to keep and eye on multiple blogs, outlets, Free Republic forum, and Twitter accounts and sort the truth yourself from myriad ‘biased’ sources across the spectrum- or an aggregator/blogger you trust to do that for you.
It’s more work, but you definitely have more opportunity if resourceful than in the past imho
“There is no place to go at this point to get balanced news”
Except for FR.....this site is my default news source now.
My sorrow in this is that I used to find that Limbaugh and Hannity were reliably conservative.
Hannity simply isn’t. If the Fox News link is forcing him to hold his fire, then shame on him.
Rush is being coy.
It absolutely blows my mind that they don’t simply announce on air that Romney is a leftist rino. If Reagan can describe the Rockefellar wing as non-conservative, then so can Rush.
Truth be told there will be a lot of liberals with (R)’s in front of their name pull the lever for obama. They are devoid or loyalty and honor. It’s all a one way street for this bunch of elitist globs of goat snot.
I'll give you another reason that seems likely regardless of Iran: $5/gal gasoline this summer. If Iran blows, then figure $6+. Game Over.
Rush is all about Rush. He is mostly thinking of his ratings. He stays luke warm on candidates, so not to anger their supporters. If you haven't noticed, he always plays both ends. He likes to be seen as neutral, and mostly attacks Obama from a strong Conservative position.
Most all Republican candidates are off limits for strong criticism. We will see, if Rush finally takes a strong stand for a candidate, but I am not betting on it.
As the internet becomes more and more the source for news, the elites become more desperate to control it. That much of the public backed hacker group Anonymous’s attack against the government after the megaupload thing has got.to be scaring them right now. They had to think that at least the left, and much more of the law and order believing right would condemn that. The sympathy the government received in the quarters it came from was tepid at best, even among people who would never violate copyrights. The veil has been torn away.
We can legitimately say that recent polls, as of today, show Newt running as strong against obama as Romney. That is a huge development.
Romney has NO arguments left. His inability and unwillingness to defend his Bain record has hurt him, also.
Agreed on each and every point, PF
Looking forward to tonight’s debate... there’s a reason Romney tried to wiggle out of them lol
I don’t agree that Hannity is a moderate. But he seems that way sometimes cuz he is playing to ratings and is stifled by Fox News and the ultimate desire to keep his job.
What bothers me about Rush is that he seems to always be on defense. I love his views on everything Conservative but now as in ‘08, he’s reacting to Obama and his actions constantly and somewhat frantically.
Notice how many times all of these talk show hosts use the word Obama.
And lately, it seems like he is all over the place with his analyses.
The main points of most of his shows can be summed up in one paragraph.
I still love Maharushi but my main go to guy is and always has been Levin. He says it like it is, doesn’t give a rat’s arse what anyone thinks of him(unlike his buddy Hannity) and is a core Constitutionalist and a brilliant scholar and teacher of it.
I just got his new book Ameritopia from Amazon. Book reviews anyone?
It's a real possibility to me, that someone like Ross Perot will come along (maybe even the same initials as Perot) that will steal the conservative base away from a "flawed" GOP candidate, and Obama wins with an anemic 40-42%
When you see the MSM starting to focus on a "marginal" candidate and comment on his "originality and energy capturing the imaginations of the voters", you will know the fix is in. Likewise, the GOP candidates will be encouraged to go negative on each other - the more wounded the primary winner, the better.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom".
And we NEED Newt to NOT just "lean not on his own understanding", but to also seek God's wisdom--because without that we are ALL (whether we want to admit it or not) DOOMED!
IOW--PRAY FOR NEWT! Because I--again REALLY!--believe he is our best hope for bringing down the Obamanation!
