Have at it y'all !
Hey Florida -- let's show the Nation and all the RINO slugs some TeaPower today !
This one oughta be good for a couple thousand !
( oy, my poor ping page ! )
I absolutely agree!
I posted about this extensively last week. Tonight, while fools dance and make merry, I grieve for my five grandchildren and the unbelievable tax burden we are putting on them.
I'm in! Let's make it so!
If you don’t vote for the republican nominee, you are voting for Obama. And if you are voting for Obama, you are not a conservative. Any of the 4 republicans are more conservative than Obama. Don’t let your emotions cloud your senses.
CNBC says Romney wins, I am not happy. 6 min till polls close, time to drink heavily.
Technically, the polls in the panhandle close at 7pm Central Time. Jezt sayin'...
Needed a laugh, thanks, 2012 is already crazy enough....
Where are the numbers coming in from?
Yep - I am not necessarily blaming Santorum per se but it is simple math. Santorum and Newt are splitting the conservative vote and Romney benefits. The RNC did not push Santorum and Newt into the race to split the vote and make it easy for Romney. Conservative candidates caused this. Can’t blame Fox News or Rush. Let’s hope Gingrich can pull off a win in spite of Florida. I haven’t given up.
The carpet bomber's will get their comeuppance :)
Vote for Paul....The only reason he wants delegates is to get FED language in the platform
For not having a lot of money, Santorum is doing fairly well. Right now he is trailing Newt by the asame amount that Newt is trailing Romney. Santorum should stay in the race if he only trails Newt by single digits. He has a shot in the upcoming primaries.
I heard something like 63 Romney ads to every 1 Gingrich.
Go away troll!
Turn out in Fl looking like the same levels as 2008.
Not much enthusiasm in FL?
It’s the gender gap that’s destroying Newt. I honestly believe it was the Nightline interview, but it took a surprisingly long time to propagate (through women who saw it mentioning it to other women).
I couldn’t agree with you more.
Slight correction Sand88...
In the words the Late Mark Scott ( Michigan talk show host) It is the evil of 2 lessers... I am tired of voting for lessers...
foaming at the bit to declare the primary for Romney as the polls close at the top of the hour.
The tax burden is the last thing I’m worried about for future generations.
CNN calling it for Mitt
CNN says Romney wins.
My sentiments exactly. Shall I light the match and fire up the bulldozer? The GOP is dead to me!
There is a difference between a party that neglects your issues and a party that is openly and actively hostile towards your issues.
I’m not saying give up. Fight like cats and dogs and rabid bearcats to get the nomination for Newt and then to make him president.
But if the party elite manage to force Romney on us, I can promise you he will move to the left in the general and declare war on conservatives. He can’t afford to leave us standing if he gets in the Whitehouse, he will need allies in the House and Senate. If it is Romney, conservatism is in danger.
Romney wins, a blowout win, we lose
If Newt works to win this thing, no one can stop him. He didn’t need Santorum to kick Romney’s butt in SC.
That worked on me with Mccain but it won’t this time. If Romney gets the nom I will stay home.
If you can, let’s send a little money to Newt tonight as a signal we’re still here: newt.org
This is a hard left hook to the jaw but its far from a knock out.
damn early voting too.
Don't quit yet! It's off to Nevada and Maine
BS, and to enable the GOP is the worst thing we can do.
That's not going to work on me anymore. If Romney is the nominee, I write-in. My vote is MY vote, and it won't go to someone who is opposite of what I hold dear.
If you don't vote for Gerald Ford, you are voting for...
If you don't vote for Bob Dole, you are voting for...
If you don't vote for John McCain, you are voting for...
(Enter Sonny and Cher) ...and the beat goes on, and the beat goes on.
Well I went out to eat today as I usually do on Jan 31 which was my Mom’s birthday...
She was born 100 years ago today...
I usually think about her and what she and Dad taught me...
My Christian and Conservative values came from them..
and to love and respect and appreciate America...
Eventhough neither of them either lived here...
I tried not to worry about what was happening in Florida...
cause it aint over by many states..
I got back to the house a few minutes ago...
Romney 48% to Newt 31% 28% reporting..
Just how many stupid people live in Florida ???
I should have stayed at OCharleys and had a slow dessert with another cup of coffee...
Too bad for you this is an ANTI-ROMNEY website. We will continue to bash Romney just as much as we bash ZERO.
That is a fact. Romney supporters will continue to be banned. Don’t look for any support for Romney EVER on Free Republic. As it should be.
If Romney is the nominee, he will lose in the general. I will vote my conscience. Your reasoning could be applied to those who vote for Romney in the primary, as a vote for Willard ultimately is a vote to return Obama to the White House.
The polls just closed in the panhandle. You cannot call this a blow out win! I think that Mitt will win BUT I will not concede to a blowout. Let’s see what happens over the next hour, shall we?
CNN early numbers show Romney with 47%
[Note that the combo of Gingrich + Santorum would still fall short by 3% over what Romney gets]
Faux just called it for Romney.
Repeal the 19th!
buy more ammo
I have been a very good Republican soldier. I’ve voted for Bush, Dole, Bush, Bush, McCain.
I do not have a romney vote in me.
There's only one small problem with the 2012 bottling of this formula. If Romney is the nominee, then Limbaugh is urging conservatives to rally around a man who is the very antithesis of conservatism. It could very well mean the end of conservative participation in the GOP. I can't speak for others, but if Romney is the nominee, I will not only actively campaign AGAINST him, but burn my Republican Party registration card. Happily.
In short, the "formula" needs to be tossed. Its expiration date has passed. It's poison.
All of them.
Thanks for the correction!
Good to know they weren’t trying to mess with those voters!
