They’re partying and celebrating on FOX.
This is... depressing. I am ashamed to call myself a Floridian. The drums of tyranny are growing louder.

Is this going to be a belly-aching, self-indulgent thread..?
What would REAGAN do?
Screw Romney. He ain’t gettin’ my vote.
Four More Years is a certainty now.
A local radio guy here in LA said that there was a poll that showed 51% of Florida Republicans described themselves as moderates. Only 29% said they were Conservatives.
If that’s true, Newt never had a chance.
>>>What would REAGAN do?
Go full attack mode against the media.... at every turn, tell the world the media is cramming Willard down the Republican’s throats because they really want DearLeader re-elected.
Those miserable scumbags. How I hate them all. The whole lib media circus.
That sends chills up my spine, gator. I’m bordering on tears at this moment.
Faux News is hysterically happy that they helped Mittens and the GOP-e.
we have too many brain dead people who moved into our southern part of our state and brought their north east politics with them.
It’s not too late for a Sarah Palin to get into this thing. Still 95% of delegates left to be decided and we have five weeks before the next major string of primaries.
What would REAGAN do?
He would say “Well, there you go again”!
Well, this is Flor-duh after all. The same state that almost botched the 2000 and gave us Bush v. Gore.
I haven’t forgotten...
Why is Flori-Duh always so messed up??
are they just gullible??
And not the only one.
And the advertising that New was run out of the house in disgrace for unethical behavior when the IRS cleared him.
That a total lie.
Who would vote for a liar and a thief? Only a voter with no moral compass of his own. I hope Newt will stick with it because before it is over, Romney's lies will catch up with him.
my family will never vote for ROmney and I guarantee that the establishment now say we must unite, we must defeat obama, look we’ll put VP on the ticket for you , don;t vote for Romney is a vote for obama
Well they can all piss off, I;ve had it with all of those who attacked Newt, including FOX and I will never vote for him and be taken advantaged of like 2008
Now a bitter and raging anger began to fill him. This group of men, perhaps more than any other single group, was responsible for the muddy horror which had choked the people for decades. The free and independent press! the members of that profession had either supinely allowed themselves to be seduced into the betrayal of a nation, or had been had voluntarily silenced out of cowardice or expediency. Many of them had been engaged for years in active and deliberate treachery, using the powerful means oc communication to further the designs of wicked men. This latter half of the Press had deceived the people with lies and cunning anf falsehood and synthetic rages against "the special intersets" of the forties and fifties. They had denounced any man of spirit and courage who had dared speak against the foul servants of Communism and Socialism whether that man were Senator or fellow-scribe, private citizen, ambassador, statesman or writer. Scores of them had hysterically upheld any politician who had attacked or evaded the Constitution of the United states of America; they had been the idolators of Communist Russia and had labored fervently, for hire or through the evil imaginings of their perverted minds to thrust Marxism upon their nation.
This was the same Big Media that kept John Edwards’ campaign viable (so as to block out Hillary’s threat to Obama by keeping her in a 3 way race for delegates) long past this timeframe in 2008 even after they knew of his bastard child.
I guess we can look forward to more rigged “Twenty One” gameshow style debates from Democrat anchors tossing softballs to the Golden Child, while preparing to release more books in his favor on inauguration day.
And Romney and his advocates will never speak as nasty about The One as they did about Cain, Santorum, and Gingrich. Mitt’s waged a scortched earth campaign and now it’ll be time to make nice. He’s safe to run to the left, as Soros says, there’s little difference except for possibly the VP choice and a future SC nomination.
In Mitt’s favor, he wasn’t raised by an American hating red diaper doper baby on the knee of a Communist and brought into the political area by a former domestic terrorist and treasonous Communist who openly engaged in coordinated enemy attacks in a time of war.
Don’t play the surrender monkey game.
It ain’t over.
It's the geezer vote.
Geezers love mittens.
That was supposed to be $119,000,000.
It’s not over nationally, but it’s over here in Florida. Now the regret hangover begins. I put a lot of my time and heart into backing Newt here, and it feels all for naught.
I can’t do much else to help in other states.
Memo to Newt and Rick:
Don’t go French on us.
I can’t get thru to the contact for FOX. Have been trying for several days as I am anxious to give them a piece of my mind. Anybody have an email address?
This goes far beyond Newt vs. Mitt. This is a battle for the soul of the GOP and what this party stands for. We are either constitutional conservatives or liberal-lites.
Pray for America.
if it was never in doubt why the scorch and burn tactics which but assure nobama again...momney is a fkg mutt!
So Floridians...tell me. What flavor was the Kool-Aid?
Newt is stubborn as hell —me, too. Us, too.
He’s not going to give up. I’m not going to give up on him. I’m going to recognize is that the EASIER thing is to weep and say, “Well I’ll just go EAT WORMS...!!!”
The harder thing is to suck it up, and keep going. Most people don’t do that. THIS is where we see who are the real true-believers.
I never thought the Monica mess would come out —it did. I thought Fast & Furious would fizzle —it hasn’t.
THE LIBS ARE COUNTING ON US TO GIVE UP & THEY NEED THAT CUZ THEIR GUY IS SOOOO WEAK.
Naw, I’m not giving up, NOPE..!
Reagan would want us to stick it out, and Rush wants that, too.
Newt will CONTINUE —watch.
“Screw Romney. He aint gettin my vote.”
Obama and communists everywhere are heartened by your support.
Just heard Mittens say that we will have a united party during the convention in August.
He didn't win Iowa, he didn't win SC. So he finally won somthing besides liberal New Hampshire?
How many total delegates do all the competitors have? And how many are left out there?
Sam, it is too late. All the filing deadlines have passed.
Amen. 4 years of this liberal homo loving slime ball or Obama. Same ole same ole.
I believe this is Romney’s first win? To watch Fox Netwless you would think he has been elected President?
BTW all the cheers Romney is getting is from two mormon familes.
It’s not all lost. Newt pounded Santorum 5-2 no doubt due in part to the support of folks such as yourself.
Unless Rick’s in it to manipulate the voters, it’s time for him to bail.
This is important for the next cycle of voting.
Hang in there.
One little ray of sunshine here. Mitt only gets 50 delegates not the 100. hahahahahahahahahahaha, there is some justice in this.
A moderate is a person who stands for nothing...even worse than a liberal. I’m surprised they would admit it.
You know what? I think that, in the long run, replacing Obama with a paler Obama (Romney) with an R after his name could do more damage to the country than allowing Obama to be reelected, hopefully to trigger another Reagan revolution in 2016.
I WILL NOT vote for Romney. I held my nose and voted for McCain, and it won’t happen again. It sends the wrong message to the RNC.
Perhaps Newt just wasn't conservative enough. That's why McCain lost to Obama.
A period of relentless, self delusional confirmation bias is followed by an equal period of whining and bellyaching when everyone is forced to admit the polls were right after all.
>> Memo to Newt and Rick:
>> Dont go French on us.
Romney learned from the McCain/Huck maneuvering. It wouldn’t surprise me if Rick’s being incentivized.
I’m a Floridian, and I voted for Gingrich. I guess I didn’t get passed a cup of the Kool-Aid.
You know what? Principles DO matter. Romney will never get my vote. Gingrich is fighting for an ideal, while Romney is merely fighting for an office.
