Posted on 02/18/2012 7:19:05 AM PST by Windy City Conservative
A prominent Republican senator just told me that if Romney cant win in Michigan, the Republican Party needs to go back to the drawing board and convince somebody new to get into the race. If Romney cannot win Michigan, we need a new candidate, said the senator, who has not endorsed anyone and requested anonymity. The senator believes Romney will ultimately win in Michigan but says he will publicly call for the party to find a new candidate if he does not. Wed get killed, the senator said if Romney manages to win the nomination after he failed to win the state in which he grew up. Hed be too damaged, he said. If he cant even win in Michigan, where his family is from, where he grew up. What about Rick Santorum? Hed lose 35 states, the senator said, predicting the same fate for Newt Gingrich. It would have to be somebody else, the senator said. Who? Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor.

I’m not too concerned with what this “Senator” thinks. After all, his guy is obviously Romney, and he likely figured Romney would easily get the nomination, but now he’s turning out to be very wrong.
So, we should trust his judgment going forward, when he can’t even figure out the political dynamics within his own party? Nah.
I think we the gay marriage supporting GOP-elite is tacitly supporting Obama and the socialists.
Why else would they keep voting for Obama’s trillion dollar deficits each year?
strike “we” - that was a typo!
“If Romney loses in Michigan we need a new candidate”
Attibute that quote to a MSM source ABC’s Johnathan Karl.
If Karl cannot attribute the source for the quote he is claiming an unidentified source made then assume Mr Karl is doing some “creative reporting “ Consider the source is another ABC whore working for the Demo-Coms masquerading as an objective journalist.
Everyone on this board needs to get with a small group of friends on a regular basis between now and the election and discuss the possible collapse of this nation unless we get on the same track. It’s time for a bloodless (hopefully) war to take back the country. Every facet of your life will be monitored and dictated if we stand by and do nothing. These are serious times.
It's just “spin.” All candidates are “flawed;” in that they are imperfect. Ronald Reagan was “flawed.” (He was old and divorced; just to name a few.)
The term “imperfect” isn't used because those who use this technique believe it is not “bad” enough; so, “flawed” is used because that sounds worse and it helps to “isolate” Newt as the one “flawed” candidate and sets Newt up for then for “ridicule.”
Read Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” “isolate” and “ridicule” are part of the tactics specified within those rules that are used to defeat an opponent. This type of “spin” has nothing to do w/honesty or accuracy; it has EVERYTHING to do with WINNING AT ALL COSTS.

Newt is flawed...
That is a stupid analysis of Newt offered up by Romney’s liberal supporters who are the most flawed of them all.
I have mentioned this on other threads, but there is credible information that a Santorum/Romney or Romney/Santorum ticket is in the works. The only thing being worked out in the primaries is who will be at the top of the ticket.
GOP insiders in PA, as well as some comments from Foster Freiss,(Santorum money backer who supported Romney in 2008) are pointing in that direction. The GOP E is pushing this to avoid a brokered convention. By combining their delegates, they can easily reach 1144, unless Newt pulls out a miracle.
I am an unapologetic Newt supporter, but I find it disturbing that so mny people who are voting for a Not Romney candidate, may have him stuffed down their throats anyway.
It’s tough to tell what is more believable these days, Politics or Wrestling.
Neither of those was his fault. Old age catches up with everyone, and Jane Wyman was unfaithful.
The headline alone should motivate conservatives in Michigan to get out and vote and to bring others with them.
Speaking of “anonymous cowards”, how about we all post under our real names and give our addresses out too ?
Well said Windy City Conservative. We do have a right to know who this coward is. Maybe it’s McCain LOL.
Right on. I saw that Christie decided to veto the queer “marriage” bill - not on the grounds that it isn’t marriage and of course not on the grounds that it is WRONG. No, Christie said that it should be left to the people of the state of NJ to vote on.
So if the people of New Jersey all vote that perverts can “marry” animals - that’s ok.
Just another example of faux leadership devoid of fixed principles. Morality is determined by majority vote.
“Everyone on this board needs to get with a small group of friends on a regular basis between now and the election and discuss the possible collapse of this nation unless we get on the same track.

True - and be prepared for the tyrant to try to quell our ability to communicate so that “tea parties” and such gathering do not abate his evil.
We’re trying to do what you have wisely suggested t http://www.cbPatriot.com
We need many more people than the current approximately 100 currently participating across the US.
Which is more believable...politics or wrestling?
I greatly admire the late President Reagan. Pls understand; I am just trying to illustrate a concept; that even our best presidents had flaws; as we all do. It is a condition of being human. It is also true that what one person views as a flaw may not be viewed as a flaw by another; since we all have different views and opinions.
While you and I may not consider the things I listed as flaws of President Reagan, I can assure you that many did and he was criticized during his campaigns because of this. Sadly, politics is never “fair” or “honest.” It is what it is.
LOL! And wrestling has a lot more entertainment value without the angst!
We’ve got one. Santorum!
