Skip to comments.Romney campaign dragged down by big boatload of delegates
Posted on 03/07/2012 4:04:38 PM PST by forbushalltheway
Mitt Romney won more than twice as many delegates on Super Tuesday as Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum. The Non-Fox Media's take-away is that Romney suffered a major setback Tuesday night.
No matter what happens, Barack Obama's boosters in the NFM portray it as a debilitating blow to Romney. On Nov. 7, The New York Times' headline will be: "Romney ekes out narrow electoral victory, leaving race uncertain."
To explain the widening gulf in delegates won by Romney compared to the others -- he now has more delegates than all other candidates combined -- the media claim that a vote for any candidate other than Romney is an explicit vote against Romney.
Of course, even the NFM can't pretend Ron Paul's supporters would pick Gingrich or Santorum, both big-government, career politicians, as their second choice.
She’s in the tank for Obama
The boat is getting heavier alright with all those fat delegates. But what about the leak in the boat floor, which is causing the boat to take on water?
Do you suppose that Mitt has promised to make Ann his Secretary of State? Or maybe Secretary of Defense?
Maybe Mitty can fire us poor people.
Everybody is in the tank for someone.
Romney is dragging down the party as a whole. He can quit any time.
MandateMitt, the Hillary gang.
Why haven’t the Gingrich and Santorum campaigns treated Mitt RomenyCare with such kid gloves so far? It’s not as though that Massachusetts Mauler doesn’t have a boatload of damaging baggage they could easily exploit. Tax raiser extraordinaire, government mandater of citizen activity, and an ‘approal” rating (if you can call it that) of a pathetic 34% when he left office (which is the REAL reason he decided not to run again - he’d have gotten his greased head handed to him in a humiliating defeat). It’s a mystery as to why they let him off so easy.
“Shes in the tank for Obama”
And you have been smoking what?
Because they want the government, government contractor, and government agent, vote.
“Why havent the Gingrich and Santorum campaigns treated Mitt RomenyCare with such kid gloves so far?”
I have heard both of those candidates raise the issue. Santorum just last night mentioned it again and brought up the issue of Romney pushing the individual mandate for Obamacare.
I think Gingrich has to walk a narrow line on the matter because he came out publicly supporting an individual mandate at one time.
Santorum raises the issue often.
You can bet your last dollar that Obama will be making a big issue of Romneycare in the General election. His team worked with Romney aides and Teddy Kennedy to develop Obamacare.
“It’s not Republicans who are looking for the anti-Romney. It’s Democrats”
“they simply assert that all votes for Santorum or Gingrich are “anti-Romney” votes.”
“Liberals never dreamed that they would get so much assistance from alleged conservatives in undermining Obama’s most formidable opponent!”
Coulter lives in a bubble. She either pretends or is too ignorant to know that a lot of the base won’t vote for romney. Romney, just like McCain, saves his inflamitory and hateful lies for Republicans, not the democrats. He wants to be their “Friends”. We did not put people in office to be friends, but to stand up for our rights, the constitution, our values.
Newt along with the well known conservative Heritage Foundation were opposed to Hillarycare. That is when he went along to block her. He does NOT support Obamacare of socialized medicine in anyway, shape or form.
“I am for people, individuals — exactly like automobile insurance — individuals having health insurance and being required to have health insurance. And I am prepared to vote for a voucher system which will give individuals, on a sliding scale, a government subsidy so we insure that everyone as individuals have health insurance.”
Newt Gingrich, 1993, NBC’s Meet The Press
He has made similiar remarks in more recent times as well. Scroll down the page. It is listed as “Gingrich supported individual health insurance mandates.”
Why else would she pimp a candidate who has no chance in more than a half dozen states. I haven’t been smoking anything brigham
Everybody is in the tank for someone.
Maybe the media and maybe you.
“Everybody is in the tank for someone.
Maybe the media and maybe you.”
FINALLY A COMMENT THAT MAKES SENSE!
Yes, Coulter is cheerleading for Romney. Coulter thinks Romney will be best candidate for conservatives, Republicans and America.
everyone whining about it is cheerleading for anti-Romney.
