“Romney concedes to Gingrich in SC GOP Primary,”

GOOD! Now drop out of the race Romney. We don’t need your type of flakiness.

True Dat! Big kudos to Perry and as Palin just said(YOU haven’t started a thread yet on what Palin JUST SAID I am shocked!)She gave Perry kudos and said he took one for the team she liked Santorum’s speech and he should stay in.

People who win South Carolina win the nomination.

I certainly hope so. I was very wrong in my prediction of the SC primary. I stuck my neck out and predicted a Gingrich win of 6-8%. Looks like I was off by a factor of 2!

YIPPEE!!!

What a messed up race.

Trouble is, Newt is one blow up away from disaster.

Not to mention they will push his three marriages, and infidelity

I do hope this is the last time we see Romeny on the national stage! He really is a turn off - That plastic smile and the weird way he watches his other contenders on a debate stage. It is just a scary weird look! I am surprised his handlers did not Bi%ch slap him and tell him not to do that!

"GOOD! Now drop out of the race Romney. We don’t need your type of flakiness."

If Romney was running against McCain he probably would be dropping out about now, just like he did in 2008. Now that he has a couple of more conservative opponents to run against he has suddenly found the fire within his belly to fight on. If Romney does win the GOP nomination he will probably drop out of the race upon the first accusation of racism by Team Obama.

That way has been pretty effectively blocked by the way Newt has handled things.

They may as well kick dead whales down the beach, for all the good that will do.

That dog won't hunt, now.

But they are welcome to flog that dead horse.

Delegate count as of tonight:
Romney 19, Gingrich 17, Santorum 12, Paul 3.
Romney wont leave but he probably is done.
The real question is WTH is alterPaul sticking around for?

Folks are happy but I just don’t see how this Newt can win. Not only the primary, but how he could win a national election.

Maybe I’m wrong but the guy’s time is past. He’s carrying a lot of baggage and his erratic blowups can occur at any time.

Right now NBC is plotting to see just that happen tomorrow on Meet the Press.

No one say the name Paul Ryan to him. Please.

Paul is sticking around to push his message. On one, he is getting traction that is healthy.

Totally agree. Romney is in the wrong party. He and Zero are the same....except Zero is more likeable....and more sincere in that he doesn’t try to pretend he is something he isn’t.

None of that mattered in this primary as he won, and probably wont at all in the others.

Your tag line is interesting, you are aware that Soros is funding much of what alterPaul does, just in case you are a supporter.
That piece of his message maybe good, its all the other stuff that is lunacy and delusional.

I think your delegate count is off. CNN reports it as:

Romney - 31, Gingrich - 22, Paul - 10, Santorum - 8

1,144 are needed to win, so the race is hardly over.

It is good to see the MSM wetting their pants because Romney could not place first. I will say that. Newt Gingrich won big tonight. Congratulations. Well. Three top remaining candidates, Santorum, Gingrich, Romney, one each with a state won, and all with delegates. Only Paul has yet to win a state and I see him sinking even further.

Florida I think in no way is a shoe-in for Gingrich. It may well end as a three way split between the top three, particularly after the large part of the iceberg yet unseen about Newt comes out and comes out hard in the next 10 days, sad to say for him. If I were a conservative I would not be so hot to trot to abandon a Plan B, (a alternative lifeboat) such as Rick Santorum who has far less baggage than Newt which is coming out, and then we are all just stuck with Romney and Paul in the race. Some choice. Think weeks out ahead folks, this race changes on a dime and it will do so again in the future no doubt. PS CNN sure is opening their mouth and giving away the whole Obama General Election playbook plan, amazingly so, regardless who the GOP nominee.

I’m totally serious, the first significant state to vote choose the highly flawed Gingrich over Romney by a wide margin with Romney clocking in at under 30% it looks like.

When this happens in personal relationships it’s called getting dumped.

Mitt can go get his stuff while the voters are at work and go buy some ice cream or he can circle around the voter’s block at 3AM in his Chevy. Have some dignity Mitt!

So far nothing out yet but from the Huffy post and the tidbit says SC Gov Nikki was NOT PRESENT at Romney headquarters tonight.

According to Dr. Krauthammer, Ron Paul is staying in to make sure the Republican big tent still covers Libertarianism. I think he’s right.

As a kid in high school, I was a Libertarian, too, but then joined the College Republicans because I believed in Frank Meyers’ and Ronald Reagan’s fusionism: social, economic, and foreign policy conservatives in an ‘iron triangle’ of mutual support. Ron Paul has a very old-fashioned idea of what conservative means in each of those categories, much as I did.

However, Libertarians would rather be right than popular, which makes the perfect the enemy of the good. That’s the fundamental problem with Ron Paul, but also why he won’t get out.
