Defiance is still the nature of Texas.

If Newt is not already at the Meeting in Richardson, he soon will be.

I would like to see anyone but Romney win this one. Newt is fine and so is RP - no Mittens in Texas.

Agreed. Jim Robinson is correct. Rebellion is in the Air.

No Obozo! No Romney! "Tea Party Rebellion is in the air" Texas will do her part.

Santorum is also on the ballot still in Texas and has won more than five states so can be on the ballot at the convention. I am happy with anyone who votes for anyone but Romney in the remaining primaries. I already voted for Santorum in Michigan, but would still be choosing him if I were in one of the upcoming states. Just because Romney bought the election doesn’t mean we all have to throw ourselves in free with the purchase. #DenyMitt1144

If the REAL CONSERVATIVES would get behind Newt—RIGHT NOW, we can save this country.

Correct, but we must stop the momentum. And stop the media lies that it is a done deal for Romney.

It can still be stopped if enough of us get behind him.

If Texas gets “winner take all” we could deliver 155 votes as a block. Game changer.

I’ll vote for whomever has the best chance of beating Romney in the primary. Santorum would be fine.

Uh, I hate to break it to you, but the race for the nomination is over.

Rommey won. The nominee will be Romney. Romney will be at the top of the GOP ticket. Not Newt. Not Santorum. Not some mystery, unnanounced, unnamed surprise candidate. Time to face reality. Santorum did the right thing. Newt, being competely addicted to publicity and the sound of his own voice, cant bring himself to do so. Meanwhile, his campaign has no money and he is bouncing checks. Once again: its over.

Like it or not, Romney is our nominee and its time to unite and defeat Dear Leader, El Haj Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama. Defeating Obama is all that matters.

Let me break this to you, but buck-up and please pay attention.

There will be no surrendering here, nor any campaigning or calls for unification or ralling around Romney who's NOT yet the nominee.

Romney may well be the nominee. The delegate math is fuzzy, to say the least, but he will probably be so. He will certainly be so if people just give up.

Tough. Stop crying in your beer, it makes it taste awful.

Do you want to be heard, or herded? Primaries are to make your voice heard.

After the convention is time enough to give up and hold your nose (or not), not right now.

“Uh, I hate to break it to you”........ but there is no way in hell that I will vote for your guy, Romney.

As long as Newt is in the race, he will have my support. Folks that push Romney, while Newt is still in, can kiss my a$$.

I have long held that the very moment Romney becomes the nominee, Obama wins another 4 years.

Vote your conscience, I most certainly will mine.

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967

Ronald Reagan’s warning about losing our freedoms echoes down through a generation of lost momentum and squandered opportunity.

We now have the most ignorant electorate in the history of American elections. I believe we have the most corrupt government and media our country has ever seen.

I believe that Newt was the one leader that could have turned our country away from the abyss, intelligently and quickly.

It is abundantly clear that not enough folks shared my beliefs, instead of a leader, they wanted a preacher.... and far too many lacked the courage to forgive and look beyond the personal sins in a mans past and into the promise of a brighter future for our country. That is certainly a free choice and a personal choice.... and as it is with all choices, there will be consequences.

Romney has a decades long record of support for abortion, Roe v Wade, planned parenthood, gay rights, gun control, global warming, amnesty, liberal judges, big government, compulsory or socialized health care (RomneyCommieCare), mandates, Keynesian economics, support and approval of TARP, bailouts, stimulus packages, and much more.

If YOU can vote for that, be my guest. I will watch this country burn to the damn ground if Romney gets the nomination.

In any case, Americans will get the country it apparently wants and a country it so richly deserves.

God bless Gov. Perry and Chuck Norris. It is official now..Cain has tossed his support behind Romney. I never did trust Cain..however, Perry is remaining loyal to Newt.

There’s “bling”, and then there’s the real thing.

We’re finding out who the bling is, and they have names, and they’re falling like flies, using the “ABO” to hide behind, to cover their own cowardly @$$.

Cain struck me from the beginning as bling.

” Is you IS, or is you AIN’T”......, as you say. :)

The big surprise is Bachmann, on core beliefs, but if she goes Romney she probably will have a nice a career. However, if she comes out for the conservative left in the race, NEWT, she will be just a seat warmer, forever.

The lack of fight is positively satanic in spirit, I have decided that for sure.

I am at the point of being very relieved and very grateful that I am for the right man, win, lose or draw, because IF, I mean, IF, it should turn out that this is the simple and clear test, perhaps given us by our Lord; “THE” test that HE has set before us that would determine His hand in our destiny, then I know I have at least passed that test.

If it isn’t a test from God Himself, great. Maybe it isn’t a test from God, but as evil abounds everywhere so heavily you can breathe it, I am looking at all things both great and small very seriously, spiritually speaking, wondering what God must think.

Thinking they are saving their own skin and the country, the people are thinking Romney might “save” them, that he is the one to best beat Obama, when they should be armed to support NEWT to the teeth, and trusting in GOD for the rest.

We are not trusting God to defend our once good nation when we cooperate with Romney’s evil to beat Obama. That is not trust in God, but trust and hope in Man.

A choice like Obama and Romney. Now what kind of choice is that? Evil and Evil Lite.

Shame on us.

“ABO” is the phrase of the day, when really it is WHITE Flag waving. It’s the phrase being used as the colossal cop-out, by the bling among us— particularly our so-called conservative leaders, media personalities and these so- called “conservatives” are thick among them, and taking home millions in votes, favors, contracts, head nodding and eye winking, million dollar salaries, you name it.

There are many Paul Reveres, but no BRAVEHEARTS. Howling that “Obama is coming”, “Obama is coming”, and “ain’t it awful”, but no William Wallaces’, who will go to the rack for feedom.

(I might not do so well, either, on the rack, actually.)

We will never give up and give in. 1144 is NOT here yet.

Thanks for the update.

You can criticize Perry, but he is still a Texan. A little ornery, a little hard headed, a little rebellious. But still a Texan.

Romney to Stake Claim to Nomination at RNC Meeting Friday

Updated: Monday, 16 Apr 2012, 5:37 PM CDT
Published : Monday, 16 Apr 2012, 5:35 PM CDT

(Fox News) - PHOENIX — Mitt Romney will address the Republican National Committee meeting of state party chairmen this Friday in Phoenix, where he will stake his claim to the GOP nomination and call upon party leaders to unite, FOX News Channel reported.

The meeting will be attended by more than 40 of the RNC’s 50 state GOP chairmen, along with 200 additional officials, activists and political professionals as they gear up for the fall campaign to oust President Barack Obama.

Although Romney had a major fundraiser planned for Friday in Phoenix for some time, his appearance at the RNC meeting was only finalized Monday, FOX reported.

At the meeting, Romney, who has yet to officially wrap up the nomination, is expected to explicitly assume the role of titular head of the GOP as its 2012 presidential nominee.

The former Massachusetts governor will give his marching orders to the state GOP chairmen and spur them to the shared cause of retaking the White House.

Yes. And...

>>Newt Gingrich’s Secret Service is costing taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars a day?
http://hotair.com/archives/2012/04/19/newt-gingrichs-secret-service-is-costing-taxpayers-tens-of-thousands-of-dollars-a-day/

>>But, in one respect, his presence in the race is literally costly. Gingrich’s Secret Service detail reportedly costs taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars a day...The other non-presumptive-nominee still in the race — Ron Paul — has predictably rejected Secret Service protection as a kind of “welfare.” I’d expect nothing less from the nation’s most famous libertarian.

>>It could be that Gingrich could just give up the SS detail rather than his entire candidacy — but, personally, I don’t want Newt Gingrich to forego needed security protection. I’d rather him ask himself: Is my candidacy — and its attendant costs — truly justified? The solution to his waste of taxpayer dollars isn’t to abandon Secret Service protection: It’s to suspend his campaign.
