I am well aware of JR/FR’s anti Romney/Paul philosophy.<\ p>
All I asked was: considering this mindset, perhaps one should/would wonder not why he/she considered the postings low. <\p>Have you thought that perhaps the number of people who feel this way is not as many as some of you think.

Actual Santorum: 6,842

Interesting.

What happens if you assume that Santorum gets 80 percent of Huckabee + 70 percent of Fred?

What’s the breakpoint of Fred voters that Santorum needs to carry a win?

Iowa and NH never decide anything predictably. SC is the money state and that is where we can make some real observations about the field and who needs to get out before FL. Why in the world anyone cares about a state with a caucus and a state that has an open Primary with very loose residency requirements to have any say in selecting our nominee is beyond me. This is all an aberration for the Lamestream to fill copious hours of otherwise dead air time.

My bet is that by the end of the week, all eyes will be on SC and NH will be totally forgotten. Mittens win there was expected and changes nothing.

If you do that, you make it all but certain that nobody can win a major party nomination for president who does not have hundreds of millions of dollars in his/her account for a primary campaign that begins about two years before the general election.

I fully grant that our current system is far from perfect. However, from a conservative perspective (or, for that matter, from any perspective that doesn't trust party insiders or those with rapid access to hundreds of millions of dollars) a national primary would make many of our current problems much worse rather than solving them.

So again, why back down from attacking Romney now? This thing has barely started. NOW is the time to hammer him more than ever. Keep attacking his damn Massachusetts healthcare system and the fiscal cluster-F it’s turning out to be. Keep attacking his flip-flopping on social issues. Keep attacking his milquetoast tone and seemingly agnostic view toward the fact Obama is destroying this country.

Keep ranting! Love it!

This is Paul last campaign and he just wants to get his message out.

That's purely disgusting to the bone to ride this serious of an election just to get your message out....you have got to be kidding... for doing so is on the very back of this nations peril... what a self-induldging ba*sta*d of a snake he is then. I had great disdain for ron Paul because it has appeared he's pimping for Romney..which means he's pimping for Obam...but then to even consider what you wrote. He's worse than a traitor! I heard the jack a** had NH covered with homemade signs for him so thick you could hardly see the roadside scenery. Between Romney and paul that's all there was.....sounds to me like Pauls' a Romney bot and that makes you one as well.

This is Paul last campaign and he just wants to get his message out. But more than a few of us are kinda hoping he wins. :)

______

Yeah right, Ron Paul will be running from his hospital bed on a ventilator in 2024, his supporters will push the bed up to the podium on each campaign stop.

In 2036 Ron Paul’s cryogenically saved head will be running for President.

Some folks insist on inflicting themselves on the public for life, like McCain, Romney, Paul, etc.

Sitting here with last of morning coffee, listening to “analysis” of last night’s “primary” and have questions of my own, especially to the Stoopid Party’s leaders.

How is it that “independents”, libdims, Paulbots, etc. get to vote in the Stoopid “primary” which determines who are delegates in the party convention - and everyone thinks this is reflective of the party’s choice?

The Stoopid leaders need to push for CLOSED PRIMARIES (yes, a PURITY test) to keep the vote reflective of party members. WTH function do these party “leaders” serve if they can’t get a “pure” vote?????

If only we had a candidate that had...

The brains and speaking power of Newt
The heart/soul/morals of Santorum
The magnetism of Perry

We did once. His name was Ronald Reagan.

Sadly we can only get pieces of him, and you can’t elect 3 people to the presidency.

Come to think of it, that’s why the darn conservative vote is split. These are incomplete candidates but are strong on one thing, and depending on our priorities, that’s who we break for.

I don’t think it’s gonna be enough to get rid of Mittens :-(

Hi good buddy!

We need closed GOP primaries.

Closed to only Republican voters. Not open to Independents and register at the door on election day.

well yes ....this certainly looks like the way democrats would vote for this slate of candidates, that is for sure

predictable by the GOP as well, and the reason that the GOP insiders have chosen early voting in certain states in order to set up this rigged primary system to get their choice elected

Yep, and the GOP’s two early states are not Republican states; i.e. not RED States.

It’s deplorable.

Furthermore, South Carolina is another OPEN primary, and IIRC, ditto for Florida.

Apparently I spoke too soon.

Newt wins by 49!

M. Romney 39.3 97,532
R. Paul 22.9 56,848
J. Huntsman 16.9 41,945
N. Gingrich 9.4 23,411
R. Santorum 9.4 23,362
R. Perry 0.7 1,766
B. Roemer 0.4 945
M. Bachmann 0.1 349
F. Karger 0.1 346
K. Rubash 0.1 250
G. Johnson 0.1 181
H. Cain 0.1 160

Cain + Santorum > Newt. Santorum victory in NH! 2-2!

Considering the fraud exposed on YouTube by James O’Keefe today, we may never know the TRUE vote totals in yesterday’s NH primary. Maybe Santorum DID beat Newt...

My oft mentioned idea is for a national primary with an instant runoff ballot. You could even split it up by state and do an electoral college kind of thing. Romney would lose.

One thing is certain, the current system is horsecrap. We start in January, long before the election, with a small state holding a beauty pageant vote, and then an even smaller state with the first primary. If Romney wins SC and FL with weak pluralities the race will be over before the large majority of Republicans get a chance to weigh in.

This was a very bad result in NH. The trio of NG, RS and RP getting less combined than the Paultard. Newt edging RS isn’t good. I know some of you prefer the Newt but I don’t see how he can possibly do it. Like Perry he was once in command of this race and collapsed.

Do we think Huntsman did well enough he could register enough support in SC/FL to hurt Romney? May be our only hope.

And Perry, I know he didn’t try in NH but 1%? After 5th place in Iowa? It’s endlessly amusing that he edged Santorum in the FR poll a couple days ago. Give me a break. It’s over Governor, have some dignity.

Crazy primary season so far. Gotta love it.

I called Newt way back at 91 percent, when Santorum didn’t get the swing he needed. That was a heck of a call. I knew it would be close in the end.
