Murdoch on Santorum: 'Win Michigan Game Over'

By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 2/20/12 Rupert Murdoch's latest tweet on the GOP race a few minutes ago:

From distance, Santorum doing great. Values really do count in America, and not sneered at as in parts of Europe. Win Michigan game over.

No..not hardly! The game is being played by the media and they will not let this happen (neither will the other candidates).

It’d be game over for Romney. Not game over meaning a Santorum win.

You may be onto something. The media is now going after Santorum calling him “extreme,” “homophobic,” “anti-Protestant,” and “anti-women’s rights.”

So win a state that went to Barack Obama in 2008 and it’s “game over.” Sounds logical. The GOP should have ended the primary when New Hampshire went to Romney.

That’s what I took from the comment. Over for Romney, not Santorum. The irrelevant and fraudulent Donald Trump thinks Santorum is easy picking for Obama.

Game over? No.

However, it will force Romney to fight the rest of the way with a broken jaw.

Yes, actually it is media driven, mostly by their antagonistic view of any such thing as values.

We can only hope that most of America has become wise to their efforts and propaganda.

I keep thinking just how can this many people continue to fall for the Media’s lies. It does seem that maybe the Media knows more than we do - that most of America are really uneducated when it come to politics.

They do seem to keep voting for anybody that will promise them the world. Can they really be so ignorant? Guess we will see if it continues to happen for the coming election.

As does the fraudulent Daxton Brown. Mr. Rogers in the neighborhood nagging all the sinners is not going to fly in the general.

Santorum will not win in Nov. He will not even carry Pennsylvania. Icannot understand how people on this forum can think he can win. He will be turned into the devil by the democrats and the media.

You forgot “racist”.

The media (specifically See-BS) has already smeared Santorum as being racist by claiming he said things that he provably did not.

But that’s how the media operates.

ANYONE who runs as a Republican will be turned into the devil by the DemocRats and the media. Santorum will not be treated any differently than any of the others.

>>ANYONE who runs as a Republican will be turned into the devil by the DemocRats and the media.

While this is true, there is one candidate in the remaining field who has shown an ability to get a message out around the media, and to take on the media when necessary.

You mean the candidate who’s now polling in the basement because he’s so unpopular? Newt?

It really does get old all the infighting. I can accept people being against Romney because he’s no conservative. However the way Gingrich supporters go after a legitimate conservative like Santorum really is distasteful.

Personally I like Newt and Santorum. However the public doesn’t like Newt and it’s been showing. Whether this is a function of his past, his mouth, or mud slung by Romney et al, it doesn’t much matter. His negatives are sky high, and he’s not good enough to get around that. He hasn’t made an inch of progress since Florida.

So while I appreciate that people like Newt because he’s got some good ideas, and can communicate them, that is not going the distance. Trashing the conservative who might actually beat Romney (and hopefully the O), is not helping our cause.

Anyone who runs against obama can win. The rest is up to us.

Then again, you are "cynical man"...lol - I can hardly blame you!

Wow, I guess I really went after Santorum there.

A little touchy, maybe?

No, just sick of the idiocy.

I mean anyone who can claim Santorum is marred by making money after getting out of the Senate while ignoring that Gingrich almost made more money from his Fannie contract alone really has issues.

While I know that reality doesn’t tend to be the most popular thing around here, the fact is that no candidate is perfect (unless you ask the Palinistas who think she walks on water, but then she’s not a candidate anyway). Right now it might be a good idea if we focused energies on taking down Romney and then Obama. If people happen to have forgotten who the actual problems are, it might be nice if they remembered.

“Right now it might be a good idea if we focused energies on taking down Romney and then Obama.”

This is the pull quote right here. Nothing else matters. I can live with either Newt or Rick as long as it’s not Romney.

It seems to me though that a lot of the people stirring up the infighting are really Romney bots. They’ve been lurking around here since last summer, too gutless to declare who they are really for, and instead trashing every good conservative that climbs in the polls and threatens him. Thankfully, this scorched earth strategy appears not to be working so well this time (if you believe the polling).

You’re right, definitely game over for Obama.

Can you tell me which Republican they won't do this to? If Jesus Christ himself were running, they would paint him as Satan.

Let's not base our decision on what the democrats and the media are going to do.

Yep, a little touchy.

I don’t see where I did any of the things you seem to be accusing me of. Link?

All I did was observe that I think there is exactly one candidate that can go around the media at all effectively.

Fair enough, I should have picked a more apt post to respond to, but I was sick of the general tone I get around here bashing anyone but Newt.
