And the only way to punish the ****** at Fox and the other networks is by not watching them and give them the ratings.

“Rick bails and Newt stays in we have a real race...even with Mitt’s cash and the media etc...”

Santorum won’t leave. He should, for multiple reasons. But he won’t.

Not to worry, this primary season is not over! There are 43 states to go and those voters will get to have their say. Or is it 53 states? :)

While I know some will disagree with me, here’s my take:

Rick Santorum gets the CONSERVATIVE BADGE OF HONOR in the Florida race!

Notice how the most liberal candidate, Mitt, came in first in this liberal state. Mitt Romney also won in LIBERAL New Hampshire.

Newt came in 2nd, and he’s the 2nd most conservative, but Rick Santorum, the most conservative candidate, in this liberal state, came in THIRD!

Each candidate won at least one contest, and Romney won two, but both of Romney’s wins were in liberal states!

Now that liberal Florida is behind us, on to the more conservative states.

No offense to any Floridians, who are conservative, because I am a conservative in a liberal state as well.

Evangelicals Vote for the Originator of Taxpayer-Funded Abortions.

That should be the headline somewhere. Maybe on the entranceway to somewhere.

“Four More Years is a certainty now.”


It will be 4 more (at least) years no matter who wins. The obama junta is not going to give up the white house just because a pesky election might not go their way. Too many dead people they can count on for votes. Too many illegals they can count on for votes. Not to mention the military ballots they will find an excuse to invalidate. Plus the media has convinced most of the mush-for-brains American populace that the country is in the best condition it’s been in in it’s entire history. All thanks to the boy-god, of course.

“The Party, what little will remain of it after the Conservatives leave, will be united behind Mitt.”

Yup. Vichy GOP.

...Romney wont take the south...

People sometimes think that Florida is in the South. Well, geographically it is but the Southerners I have known (and I is one) do not think so. It's just a Yankee retirement outpost.

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.

Florida is a latitude-challenged northern state.

“All thanks to the boy-god, of course.”

At this point it is legitimate to ask: WHICH boy-god? The Bishop or the Lightworker? These mystery cults get confusing.

The real Florida poll is in. Margin of error: 0%.

DRUDGE sez: LANDSLIDE! and it was.

Zero is landslideable, just like Rush says! Quit BSing around and put your efforts toward beating Zero.

Please. Your country needs you.

Just goes to show that almost $18 million dollars in attack ads will buy you a primary.

Putting in perspective.....This has been the first time ever in Republican history three different candidates won three different states ......and now one of them has two.

It does evidence if Sanatorium wasn't in it this equation would be different. He did hurt Newt in Iowa and now in Florida........but I still am of the mind since Paul's got Romney's flank....and their both loaded in Nevada...do we still need Sanatorium to hang in there for awhile yet?

Newt's now given the signal for Sanatorium to bow out...prior to Florida Sanatorium said neither Newt nor Romney asked him to stand down....but Newt is doing that now...will he?

Now Sanatorium will show us all where his allegiance is...to our country or himself.....Newts' going to come out swinging again in March...Nevada and Utah are Mormon Country so it's pretty much in the bag for Romney there...Mormons simply can't go against one of their own.

One little ray of sunshine here. Mitt only gets 50 delegates not the 100.

South Carolina's delegation was also halved, for the same reason

I fear it will take another attack on our soil before people really wake up....even if then.

You don't think the attack from the White House on the Keystone project was not an attack on our soil?

Our best allies on the planet, the Canadians, are forced to deal with our greatest enemy, Red China, at the behest of our government?

I'm late to this game, maybe, but I remember the "Impeach Earl Warren" billboards along the highway towards Vegas and L.A. in my youth. God forbid the early Birchers, along with (Mormon) Ezra Taft Benson, and Goldwater (shiver in your boots, he wants a nookyouler war) and that daft, second rate actor Bonzo, and well, none of this matters because Cronkite says, and the most trusted name in ...

This is the end game for this republic.

Maybe I wasn't clearly stating my opinion. This is the end game.

Since 1980,South Carolina picked the GOP nominee FIRST—then Florida imitated us each time.

In 1976, Florida picked Gerald Ford and South Carolina chose Ronald Reagan. The RINO Ford won the nomination and then went on to lose to the peanut farmer.
What was SC thinking—picking Reagan?

he’s a jackass at this point

like many of his supporters..lol

they will be along soon

splitting the conservative vote plays right into the Romney war machine hands

it’s perfect...between that and their cash and media control...it’s like a fixed race

Santorum out would not have been enough. Even if all his votes had gone to Newt, Newt still would have been a point short.
