"Santorum is surging!" "It's a one man race!" "The Primary is over!"

I saw all of those claims in the last week from his supporters.

So Romney is back on top and will obviously get a bounce from Arizona. Is it Paul's turn yet? /s

If Mitt pulls out Michigan as it appears he might, Santorum might be sorry he decided there'd be no debate before Super Tuesday after all.

If Santorum does lose Michigan after putting so much investment in his essentially one-on-one effort, what happens next?

I can expect the Santorum squads will continue to bash Newt and run from the senator's record. Tens of thousands will go to the polls with false hopes and misleading "facts."

It's such an important election and this is the primary we got. It's a scandal and will surely delight and bemuse historians.

And where is Santorum’s support going? Gingrich’s numbers have dropped, but still large enough to steal votes from Santorum and swing the election to Romney

If not Rick, it will be Mitt.

Also, thanks for the new tagline. IF you’re allowed to have yours, then it shouldn’t be a problem with mine, since mine now is more accurate based on the circumstances.

And where is Santorum’s support going?

If Florida is any indication, they are probably just staying home. That appears to be the primary effect of negative ads... supporters don't necessarily "shift" to another candidate.

“Also, it appears this poster is a Newt supporter.”

The Romneybots have been using that for cover since Jim’s endorsement. Watch how enthusiastically this one supports Newt when he actually threatens Romney in an upcoming primary.

Newt and Rick are in a cease fire right now because they both need Mitt to take a major hit tomorrow. Only a Romneybot would be attacking Santorum like this today.


Bingo!

Btw, Rombot Apollo has been zotted, it appears.

“If Santorum does lose Michigan after putting so much investment in his essentially one-on-one effort....”

1. Rick has put in about 1/10 the investment of Willard’s in Willard’s own home state which he won by about 10 points in 2008. Plus Rick has been campaigning the heck out of Ohio and down South the past 10 days. And some in Michigan to piss Willard off.

2. Willard took home a lion’s share of delegates in Michigan last time over McCain & Huck. BUT Rick is almost guaranteed to win the majority of them on Tuesday.

3. Oops, I forgot my last point. Oh yeah, it’s so flippin’ sweeeeeeeeet watchin’ Willard have to defend the state he spent his first 20 years in, bought and paid for the Establishment’s entire org, and where his dad governed.

True, but this particular poster is a quota-filling, volume-posting machine. And it's all about Santorum. Look at his history. It's the stuff restraining orders are made of.

Apparently the mods agree with you.

You're right that the primaries are conducted state by state. But sometimes a national poll
or the candidate's overall national polling numbers can influence the vote in the states. It's
especially true if the numbers get spun by the mainly slime media just the way they want it.

If the polls are conducted by left wing organizations, it's questionable whether they are
accurate anyway.

As far as I took it, Apollo5600 was simply trying to humorously mock some of the overblown religious rhetoric the Santorum supporters are using. For example, we have that absolute hysterical idiot American Constitutionalist on another thread claiming that Santorum’s surge is God taking revenge on Newt supporters. Apollo5600 is absolutely right that half of the Santorum supporters ought to be zotted for making outrageous statements that sound like televangelist claptrap where they claim God has divinely spoken to them on which candidate they should be supporting. Those attempts to invoke the Lord’s name in order to win a political argument that they can’t win on the merits is what makes me want to throw up.

I got a little ticked off today when I read an article about a retired auto worker that was going to vote for Santorum so that he could help Obama’s chances.

For Santorum to bend over asking for the ‘Rat vote in MI really made me not like him a little more. It’s not that I like Romney, but he went over the line with the robo-calls. I don’t like it.

The decision to zot is not mine, nor is the power to do so.

If Apollo5600 has enough advocates, and if the zot was as unfair as you all believe, you will probably have enough influence with Jim to ask for a reinstatement.

Since I value your opinions, I’ll throw my hat into that ring as well.

I don’t celebrate the zot of Apollo5600 either.

I don’t understand it.

I read his posting history and he certainly supports Newt Gingrich, and is not a fan of Rick Santorum.

How does that qualify him for a zot?

It appears to me that some pro-Rick supporters got their panties in a wad over his comments, but in his posting history Apollo does a good job of defending his positions.

If we are going to zot, let’s do it on a rational basis.

RE: Apollo
 
From last week. I knew he was a troll then. I called for an "IBTZ" and was criticized by several FReepers. But guess what? I was proven right.
 
 
 

To: Apollo5600

Your direct quote that “religious and social issues are only being used to promote a perception of character and cover up a lack of substance” is evidence enough for me that you have no use for religion and Christianity.

And if that’s not enough to zot you, then I’ll wait. Newbies like you ALWAYS give themselves away. Sooner or later you’ll make a comment from the heart that lays open your true convictions.

Maybe I’ll be proven wrong, but I doubt it.

See post 90. Links to a thread from last Friday. I was pretty much alone in calling for a zot on Apollo. It had nothing to do with his being for/against Newt/Santorum.

He was making anti Christian comments.

He didn’t get the zot then. But trolls ALWAYS out themselves.

Can you back that statement up? There may be one or two, but half?? I doubt it's even 1%.

I think where you're getting confused is Gingrich supporters mocking Santorum as "St. Rick" and accusing him as being "holier than thou."

Unless this wasn’t his first time here, you have it right, exit82, but then that would lead to me question why a mendacious member remains here with second account.

I recall Apollo5600 when he first came here and he was very pro-Cain and very anti-Newt, until Cain was forced out. He may have supported others in between. I have no idea.

Santorum supporters have been after him for a while now, trying to call him anti-Christian. He was a rough around the edges poster, but it’s not like all Santorum posters are “saints.”

Well, I looked at your post 90, and I don’t see an anti-Christian comment.

To me, the poster thought that Rick was using religious issues to cover up a lack of substance.

Well, so what then?

He didn’t say Christ was a demon, did he?

Maybe you like Rick and he doesn’t. So?

Sounds like you jumped to a conclusion that wasn’t there. I try to give folks the benefit of the doubt. I have been on my fair share of helping folks ride the lightning when they deserve to. I realize that we are in the midst of a crazy political season, and everyone is trying to support their primary candidate.

But if that is all you have, that isn’t much. And certainly not “anti-Christian”.

“Don’t criticize Santorum” who wears his religion on his sleeve, even if you’re Catholic, like me.

I agree with you and exit82. Apollo5600 was "rough around the edges", but I read some of his history and didn't think that he was a bad guy. He may have deserved a talking to or reprimand, but I didn't think that he deserved to be zotted. I've seen much worse said about Newt, including outright lies.
